Cons: "Food in Business Class was barely edible. A tired old plane."

Cons: "My lugares gota lost"

Pros: "It got me from Point A to Point B, so credit for that?"
Cons: "There were zero vegetarian food options. Entertainment was a shared screen between a dozen passengers. These planes need a fire upgrade."

Cons: "I needed to change the date,,,,but no answer at Avianca....so I ended up wasting the full amount I paid.NEVER AGAIN do I use KAYAK!"

Pros: "same comment as previous"
Cons: "same comment as previous"

Pros: "We landed on time. Always appreciated. The movie was absolute dog sh*t and the communal screens were tiny, but at least there was a movie."
Cons: "If I had known at the time of booking that what looked like a quick stop in El Salvador would actually involve everyone getting off of the plane, needlessly going through security again, having items confiscated even though they were legally purchased after going through security at the prior airport, and being made to wait yet another eternity just to board to plane again, I would have chosen another flight."

Pros: "Avianca is one ignore few airlines where you can still get a nice meal and even a drink at no additional charge. Airplanes are nice and modern and the staff is friendly"

Cons: "massive delay in the counter"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "To wait"

Pros: "Entertainment options"

Pros: "The passenger next to me..... That's about it"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seats, limited meal options. all I needed was something without pork and wasn't accommodated by a really rude flight attendant. No entertainment on back of seat for nearly 6 hours...."

Cons: "The time in the check in Line was horrible, why the people who made your check in on line wait around at airport, more that the people don't have check in? It is absurd!!"

Pros: "Staff was nice. Relatively comfortable, good movie selection"
Cons: "I'm vegetarian, only ham and cheese sandwich"

Pros: "I'm very dissapointed with avianca specially.now that I have a few trips coming up. When I was at the airport I asked the clerked for specific information ,I asked him how much it would cost to take my surfboards if it was going to be to expensive I would just leave them home ,he said no problem that there would be a charge of.$120_150 and it cover the trip until denpasar ,I asked are you sure?he said YES that he would put it on the note and that if I had any problems in NY to just show them the receipt well no need to say.that.when I arrived in NY I was charged again ,the cs rep of the other airline said they wouldn't have charged if avuanca would have put that the surfboard was going until denpasanr when we said that he had done it we looked stupid because he had just checked our bags on the tag until Bali but not the surfboard. So now I have to return and I'm working if I will have.to.end up paying.$1000 in.total.just for my surfboard.when this could have been avoided from the start if the cs rep of Avianca would have told.me the truth or know how to do his Job. What solution can you give ,I feel very annoyed. Thank you"
Cons: "The beverages and punctuality"

Pros: "Viajo mucho y Avianca es mi aerolinea preferida, las asistentes de vuelo mientras no sean de Costa Rica, son muy amables, las costarricenses son muy pedantes y groceras y las Colombianas las mejores, lindas, amables, pacientes."

Pros: "If Avianca was everywhere we would fly them every time!!!! We had some delay issues and they were so kind and accommodating!!!"

Cons: "Bad customer service when dealing with the issue."

Pros: "Fast and confortable, like every flight should be!!"
Cons: "The crew in Costa Rica was new and it took more time to departure because it got a little bit messy at the beginning"

Pros: "I had an emergency row seat, giving me more space."
Cons: "This was an older plane both SFO-SAL and SAL-SFO. The ride back had tv screens every 5 seats or so."

Pros: "On time, no delays, good information and updates, We are impressed by the prompness of your crew."

Pros: "Food was excellent. They gave me dinner and a snack. High quality food. Staff members were really polite."
Cons: "Entertainment was really poor. Seats didnt have a screen to watch movies or music."

Pros: "We liked the duration of the flight. The people were great and the food was nice with several drinks."
Cons: "We liked everything."

Cons: "Having waited in San Jose for two hours, I was hoping that maybe my experience on the last flight from Guatemala was an aberration. It was NOT! Again the food was disgusting and there was no form of entertainment available. Someone gave me their extra "snack" as we were disembarking but I left it on the plane. I am not one who usually tosses food aside; however, the food they gave us was revolting."

Pros: "great onboard service and on time arrival"

Pros: "Extra space because flight was relatively empty"
Cons: "Old plane with bad facilities. Had to use plane earphones because plane only had two prong headphone that only displayed one ear audio if you plugged in your own headphones. No neck rest for head on seat. Entertainment system was slow to respond and had problems throughout the flight (needed to be reset by crew). Overall just an old and outdated plane, which was terrible for an international flight - especially the longest of my 3 legs home. Once again, entertainment was far too limited. Only one recent hit movie, which I already watched in my 1st flight during the 16 hour journey."

Pros: "Friendly staff, nice snack, free checked baggage."

Pros: "My best experience so far"

Cons: "I was not informed of having to pay $150 extra for having a surfboard, very disapointing"

Pros: "Food & Beverage Crew Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Disorganized/Chaotic Boarding Process - the boarding area in San Salvador was boarding 2 flights at the same time. The seats in the plane were small (in economy). The fellow passengers were loud."

Pros: "Amazingly smooth landing by pilot at SFO."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats on the A220 with no adjustable headrests or front magazine pocket. Crampled space. No personal IFE."

Pros: "Comfy, good film selection, friendly crew."
Cons: "My entertainment screen kept turning itself off and getting stuck."

Cons: "4 1/2 hour delay in San Salvador"

Pros: "I'm still in El Salvador!"

Cons: "No vegetarian food"

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Pros: "Punctually its flight"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "They treat passengers like they matter; they serve food, drinks and even smile at their guests. I thought I was transported to a different generation. Good for you, Avianca! I'll fly again."
Cons: "Passengers were filthy. Not the airline's fault."

Pros: "Los espacios amplios en asientos y el entretenimiento moderno."

Pros: "Everything from online check-in to in-flight service, smooth landings and on time performance were great. We took 4 flights in November from SFO to Costa Rica. Very short 1hr layover in San Salvador airport. Shortest total flight time available! As Americans it was nice to be immersed in Latin culture right from the start. We needed to use Avianca live phone support before departure which was also excellent. We would fly this Airline again."
Cons: "No complaints, very well organized in flight and ground services."

Cons: "Everthing"

Cons: "Customers Service: I had an issue with the baggage (it was broken) and they say that is an normal process."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good and headphones offered without being asked. Blankets were placed on seats for those who wanted one."
Cons: "TSA agents at Panama Airport are the rudest people I've ever met. Ruder than TSA Agents is USA if you can believe that! I've flown out of Panama several times and they are rude every single time. Seats on plane are very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, legroom ample in economy. Great value."
Cons: "Entertainment system was good, but move selection a bit limited."

Pros: "It was everything pretty good!"

Cons: "Food was pretty bad"

Pros: "Thankfully we missed the holiday traffic so we were able to check in and board effectively."
Cons: "Food service was poor and planes were outdated."

Cons: "I didn't like I could not choose my seat."

Pros: "The crew was super polite!"
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."

Pros: "Again the crew was amazingly polite."
Cons: "I had to sit next to a very overweight person and it was super uncomfortable."

Pros: "The call center was not accured The fligh atendent did'nt pay any attention"

Cons: "The boarding and departure took extremely long. I understand that there was a Power outage the day prior to this flight and that this cause major delays and issues throughout the following days."

Pros: "Bothing"
Cons: "Baggage was left behind and It aaroved 5 days later, terrible follow up and no compensation at all, total nightmare"

Cons: "Boarding was too slow"

Cons: "We needed more water."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "In Panama City we had to go through a secondary security at the gate and had some of our belongings taken from us.. belongings that are normally allowed through security in the U.S... and because of this we had to have our fragile items put below with all the baggage and be sent to baggage claim.. which was extremely scary for us and frustrating. We were held inside the security of the airport without be allowed to leave to use the restroom, buy water or eat food."

Pros: "I missed my first flight due to faulty advertising by copa. Because they announced the flight was delayed. Then they did not want to put me on the next flight because they said it was full, but it was not. Copa representatives at sfo treated me very badly, even though I was very polite. I told them if they didnt put me on the next flight, I would miss my cruise in panama and they were still not helpful. They told me they couldn't do anything to change my flight because I booked through kayak. They ended up putting me on the next flight and I still barely arrived at my destination on time and I had to spend 150$ extra because my transport in panama had already left me. I had to walk all o er ago to see if there were any flights to panam from other airline because they didn't want to admit their mistake and put me on the next flight. I had a horrible experiences with copa on my way to panama and on my way back. Their people were unfriendly, rude and not helpful at all. They give no greetings, they lie about planes being full and my suitcases arrived cracked. Worst and most stressful flying experience I ever had!! I am still infuriated and would like some kind of reparation or action taken because I had to stay 4 extra hours at the airport, spend extra money and they gave me the most stressful experience ever while flying. Oh"

Cons: "Stopped abruptly to re-fuel on a non-stop flight to SFO in Cancun. The crew was not very communicative about this stop. The crew then switched at Cancun, leading us to believe the re-fueling communication was not true, and they were really switching out crew. While sitting on the tarmac of Cancun waiting for two hours, drinks/service was not given. I was in business class, and wasn't even offered water. We were also told to not use the restrooms. Worst business class experience of my life. I will never fly Copa again."

Pros: "Free food, free drinks, free luggage!!!"

Pros: "The crew was exceptionally kind And efficient The food was ok"
Cons: "Not that much"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "The food was not good. Limited selection on TV and no news events."

Pros: "the food in the plane we good"
Cons: "the logistics and the manual check in 1 full hour late and some people missed their connection flight not cool at all."

Pros: "The kindness of the cabin crew, the food the drinks"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "No on board entertainment"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not really confort."

Cons: "Worst landing in a commercial flight I ever had."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "There was only 1 choice of beef sandwich no alternative"

Pros: "I want expecting to get food on such a short flight, what a pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "There weren't any choices for entertainment, just one movie playing on a screen for everyone"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled 45 minutes before take-off"

Pros: "Everything was amazing!!"

Pros: "Whole experience from San Jose through to Panama City was good. Although a short flight, the crew managed to serve a meal and drinks. As it was such a short flight, there was no entertainment."

Pros: "The food was good, a small snack and drinks. The crew is friendly"
Cons: "They could renew the fabric of the seats, and carpets. there is not entertainment offer"

Pros: "Price, efficient boarding, crew"
Cons: "Crowded small seats, overhead movies no one watched,"

Pros: "the options they give, are excellent... The best for any customer... And the healthiest, since 2 days before i yraveled in united and got stomch sick cause all they give is chicken and meet and those are bad options as airplane food"
Cons: "I had to wait a lot for my luggage in my final destination.... Thats all"

Cons: "The flight was delayed"

Pros: "On time Great service"

Pros: "USB port Video/TV screen in seat. Food was good. Very lovely staff"
Cons: "The loud speaker was VERY loud..."

Cons: "Between San Jose and Las Vegas, probably in SanJose, a 500 dollar Breil Milano watch was taken from my checked luggage. In a rush at the hotel, I had regrettably packed it rather than carrying it on."

Pros: "The service, the big smile of the representatives"
Cons: "Keep it up!!"

Pros: "Food and media was fine"
Cons: "Left us waiting at the airport trying to find our bags for about an hour. Finally one of several passengers who lost their bags found out that there was a problem and that our bags were still in Panama! Waited another hour and a half to file a claim. No apologies, no compensation and no communication. If there is ever another choice any other choice I would take it rather than fly copa again.."

Cons: "My fight (209 on 12/23/15) was delayed because the flight attendants wooden seats a overweight person in the first class when they have six seats available, I missed my connecting flight (761 12/22/15) in Panama and had to wait six hours in Panama to catch my next flight. Nobody from Copa did anything I even emailed and never got a response, this was my first time flying Copa Air."

Cons: "online checkin doesn't work."

Pros: "fue un viaje muy tranquilo y plasentero"

Pros: "The food and the entertaintment"
Cons: "Very disappointed this time with Copa. They did not leave on time ( 1 hour later) and they stopped in Cancun when this was a non-stop flight from Panama to SFO to put gas and change the crew. This was never said at the time of the purchase of the ticket but just before boarding the plane in Panama. Also they never told us why we left late from Panama. At the end we ended up arriving 3 hours later to San Francisco."

Pros: "Seats barely recline. Uncomfortable even for a short period of time."

Pros: "There was a flight delay longer than what my next layover was going to be. Copa rebooked me with American Airlines and got to my final destination just 40 minutes later than originally planned."

Pros: "They served a meal and it left on-time."
Cons: "I bought my ticket through Kayak and it included a layover in Panama City. However, it was being run on two separate airlines (United and Copa). Because of this, I could not check-in online. I arrived in San Jose to check in early since I had a 4am flight and was planning to sleep in the terminal. However, the Copa crew did not show up until 2/2:30am to begin checking people in at the counter. There was no other way I could get my ticket ahead of time and I probably would have stayed at a hotel and left early rather than arriving at 8pm and waiting for 6 hours in the open part of the airport."

Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Row 22 was not a charme. We did not get any drinks at all. Should not happen on a flight. No entertainment"

Pros: "Copa does everything with excellence and although economy seats are small, their superb service overshadows everything else. I'll definitely continue to use Copa Airlines and recommend it to everyone."

Pros: "They help to us, to be together inside to the aircraft"
Cons: "Boarding, entertainment"

Pros: "Typically good Copa service, including breakfast service even though the crew had only about a half-hour to accomplish that."

Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."

Cons: "Delay luggage"

Cons: "I could not check in online nor selecting a seat in advance. Getting the boarding pass and the seat was a nightmare. British neither American could not help me out. Horrible experience"

Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"

Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"

Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."

Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"

Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"

Pros: "Flexibility and helpfulness of staff."
Cons: "I no longer fit in the seats because they keep shrinking the pitch"

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Cons: "Food in general"

Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"

Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No leg room, hot plane, airline staff is friendly but clearly bored."

Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."

Cons: "That fact that on both ways they changed our flights which either we got to the destination late or we had to run across the airport so we don't miss our flights"

Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Usb charger would not charge tablet in flight. Tried multiple sources since there were 4 of us-none worked."

Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful providing updates to our status. They moved us smoothly on and off the plane during the delay."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for what seemed like hours. The initial boarding was confusing with multiple levels of priority boarding."

Cons: "As I mentioned in my last comment I was seated at the back of the plane on over four and a half hour flight by the time the food got to me they had ran out that I mention that I'm a diabetic with high blood pressure so I have to sit and suffer for over 3 hours will never ever fly American again"

Cons: "The plane was freezing and made me very uncomfortable! I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and she told me no. Even though I saw some in first class.... I would have purchased one. It was very hard for me to fall asleep because of how cold I was. Comfort is one of the main things I expect in a 4 plus hour flight."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and competent and obbiously embarrased by whoever in operations screwed this flight up good."
Cons: "Pleane departed two hours and thirty minutes after original schedule because of operational and equipment problems. Plane wasn't even in Philadelphia unti 6:00 pm. The guy at boarding (unlike the boarding in SFO) called way too many groupss individually, First Class, Diamond, Premium, Gold, Priority. This led to many people being refused boarding and told to wait. In SF they simply call first class and then all the rest or the Aadvantage members together before the land boarding. Much faster and more efficeint. Even though the flight was full there less than 12 people in the Diamond, Premium, whatever classes. And the guy taking the boarding passes was a jerk. He actuallly seemed to take pleasure in telling people they couldn't board. Might not ever fly AA again. At least never from Philadelfphia."

Cons: "Due to the delay which caused us to miss our connection we had to get a hotel, which we had to pay for. It also caused me to miss work the following day."

Pros: "Thank you for the new, comfortable plane"
Cons: "No IFE on 6 hour flight."

Pros: "Things went ok"
Cons: "The plane was old"

Cons: "Flight didn't exist"

Pros: "There was no warning until departure time that flight was delayed for two hour. Some other american flights were delayed much as four hour or more."

Pros: "Flight delayed due to no pilot or co-pilot. Did not land til 2 a.m. I hate American airlines. Their planes are old, there is no entertainment, the seats are like sitting on a board"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Three separate delays before boarding (boarded three hours late), then another 45 minute delay after boarding to "recalculate" due to fuel burned while sitting at gate, then nonstop announcements and dinging for the 30 minutes during & after takeoff, no screens or outlets, old and uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Flight Attendant Sullivan added humor and attentiveness to flight"

Pros: "crew was good"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reason was given. I had to buy new flights on Southwest and ended up having to pay an extra $200 in order to get home for work on Monday."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Flight left on time"

Pros: "Everything. I was amazed and extra appreciative that my checked bag made what turned out to be a very tight connection! Thanks!"
Cons: "Everything was great. I would like to connect that it would be nice to have a not applicable rating option for food and entertainment as they are often not applicable but having to choose something effects the overall rating."

Pros: "This leg of the trip was not packed. There was an empty seat between me and the person next to me"
Cons: "This flight was 6 hours. It did not have frontal entertainment, which was not pleasant. They did not offer blankets. The plane was cold as I boarded the plane. I asked for a blanket and was advised they didn't have any. I was so cold the entire flight that I still have a cold due to the flight. I froze the entire flight. I stuffed my arms in my shirt and let my hair down for warmth. Also, I learned my lesson. Pack my own blankie for comfort. I checked my carry on in Aruba due to overhead capacities. My bag had my sweatshirt and the blankie Delta bankie I acquired when I flew from SFO to ATL."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "We were delayed by a mechanical then we waited another hour after that until they finally decided to take some people off because we were weight restricted. Then we waited another hour while they changed their minds and brought us back to the gate to get the people back. Then when we got into SFO at 1 am we had to wait because they had another plane parked at out gate."

Pros: "Service was outstanding, stewardess was funny, plane was very clean. I will switch from Southwest! Good job!"

Cons: "It was very delayed which I understand happens but then we arrived in San Francisco and were delayed on the runway because of the gate. I think at this point moving us to an open gate would have been nice - we had been delayed for so long - my 8 year old daughter was really having a hard time. Instead we had to sit and wait for 20 more minutes once we were on the ground. This seems avoidable to me."

Cons: "crew delay, delayed our flight and ruined our whole day...really disappointed"

Cons: "Having missed my scheduled flight, when I got on the later flight, we waited an hour on the tarmac to takeoff and 40 minutes on the tarmac in San Francisco for a gate. Basically three hours of sitting on a tarmac all day because gates weren't available. How can that possibly be? Do you not know the plane is coming? Terrible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I'll never book AA again."

Pros: "Very helpful people. From the from desk to the in flight crew they answered my questions. Had a weird gate where it's a satellite gate with American Eagle, little confusing but they helped me out."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for like an hour. 100% not their fault, and they kept us in the loop the whole time. Really not a complaint about them. SFO is just always sucked in with fig in the morning."

Pros: "FINALLY American has up to date aircraft!!! Five years ago half the seatbacks and lighting on long distance flights didn't work. Swore I would never fly them again. They have redeemed themselves. nice aircraft"
Cons: "Inflight movie questionable. Couldn't figure out wifi entertainment options from inflight magazine ( over 60) and staff too busy to assist ( though didn't ask - just could see they had their hands full with beverage service). Would recommend video instructions after preflight safety video for tech unsavvy travelers. Also reminder on reservation to bring your own headsets and electronic devices."

Pros: "I LOVED the staff on this flight. Especially the man, I didn't catch his name but he was the friendliest flight attendant I have ever met. He had a warm smile the whole flight and helped me get an ice pack for my back when I was in pain. Every time he got something for someone he was smiling and happy which made me and my husband smile and happy. He should be recognized because he made our experience very enjoyable. I have never been on a flight where the service was constant, all of the flight attendants walked up and down the aisles throughout the flight making sure everyone was doing good. Typically, they go down the aisle with the service carts once and thats it, but they made sure everyone was taken care of for the whole flight. Thank you for the great flying experience after a long and tiring trip!! We were dreading the flight but the staff was great."
Cons: "Waiting in the Charlotte Airport for the flight to board was a bit irritating because the two girls that were supposed to call the sections for the flight were on their phones and not very present with what was going on. We boarded late and i am not sure if this is because the flight itself was late or they were just slow with the process.. The only thing I would complain about the flight itself is that we had to wait on our plane for about an hour after we landed. This, I know- has nothing to do with AA and the service/staff. I think this is something that SFO is responsible for, and I felt bad that people were taking it out on the crew."

Pros: "Having a meal on the flight in couch"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Courtesy and helpful attitude if the crew"
Cons: "Seats had a small legroom. Headsets were available at a cost"

Cons: "Entertainment was terrible No free wifi, no tv screens on seats"

Cons: "5.5 hour flight in first class with no video except on an iPad or other device which require paying for wifi. $8 for a half hour. Lousy."
