It was a smooth clean flight. We really enjoyed our trip.

The seats were good. The plane was very clean. The crew was friendly. On-time departure and arrival. Entertainment center/WiFi faltered underway

My bought this for my mom who is very particular when picking up airlines, she said it was great!

plane was delayed 1 hour

Cons: "Excellent trip"
Cons: "Didn’t board back to front, I know the flights are packed, but it’s still faster and safer. Flight was delayed because of a bag count? How long can it take to empty it and re-pack it?"
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Jetblue is just amazing, lots of smiles, tv, free fast WiFi , free snacks and drinks !"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They were quick to help when needed."

Pros: "Spacious seats. Friendly crew."
Cons: "A lot of announcements on PA. Made it difficult to rest/sleep"
Pros: "On time service, decent plane with good crew"
Cons: "Satisfactory flight"
Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "Tv selection"
Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."
Pros: "Airplane was very comfortable. Flight was delayed a bit, but airline kept us well informed."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and kind. The flight was on-time."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Cons: "No explanation given for delay."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The chair was broken and keep going back"
Pros: "Friendly, down to earth staff that looks like their happy to be there, including Pilot."
Cons: "Every time my flight is always late and I usually have my family with me. An on time flight would be nice."
Pros: "Leg room entertainment and coffee"
Cons: "Three hour wait on plane due to maintenance issue. Pilot kept stating he thought it would be resolved in 15-20 minute. We were given water but not offered anything else. We were not given option to get off the plane nor given any compensation or good will gesture like a 25 Voucher etc. I was disappointed withJet Blue."
Pros: "They have cheezits and leg room and it's a quick direct flight"
Cons: "Male flight attendant seemed annoyed to be there. It wasn't obvious but as someone who works in the service industry I could tell he was being short with people and could have provided a much better experience if he wanted to be there. Intercom messages sounded like an annoyed demand because we were bad passengers not an announcement simply alerting us of the seatbelt sign being turned on again"
Cons: "Made it to my destination 2 hours later."
Cons: "Had to pick up gate-checked bag at carousel. But it arrived quickly."
Cons: "We were delayed for over two hours."
Pros: "Amazed with the attentiveness and comfort on the plane. The snacks were great had a few options that other airlines dont."
Cons: "Nothing! Completely satisfied with my flight."
Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy! I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Left right on time."
Pros: "Check in crew at BOS was great - this team of folks is not on the rating, but wanted to call out that they were very friendly and helpful, one kind lady walking me thru the bag tag printing process when I hadn’t realized I needed to do that."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was distracting. I was trying to read and would have preferred that it was dark. I didn’t want to bother anyone to ask how to shut it off so I just put up with it. Is it possible to shut the screen off if you don’t want to use It?"
Pros: "JetBlue has the best snack options."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew while still having a good time and making it a great experience. Am a frequent flier and this is an airline I hope to travel on again very soon!"
Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "It was bumpy and my mom is a very nervous person"
Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."
Pros: "more leg room, real snacks"
Cons: "horrible sound quality on the in flight movies/TV"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "No priority boarding for credit card holders"
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Cons: "1/2 hr late"
Pros: "Everything was terrific...on time and a very smooth experience including the flight! Thank you!"
Pros: "Got a TSA Pre Check stamp on my ticket to start, flight was on time and the crew was professional and very accommodating."
Pros: "Friendly polite crew, good takeoff and landing, little turbulence. Our flight was delayed, but only by half an hour."
Cons: "Having to pay twice because I'm a person of size and hang only little over when most of the back of the plane was empty. I can see having to pay for the seat to reserve it, and having to pay if I'm using 2 seats and the plane is full otherwise, but if the flight isn't full, I should be able to get a refund for one of the seats. It's discrimination and it's not okay. Or, you know, have seats that fit all your customers. Also the SiriusXM sound was of extremely poor quality."
Pros: "I just really appreciate the staff ,the attitudes are wonderful always there ready to help you. And the airplanes are very comfortable and roomy. And it seems like my flights are always on time or early."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "TV sets JetBlue apart - except when it doesn't work. Snack choices are bad."
Cons: "No TV; plane was not clean - smelled like the toilet overflowed. And this was the first flight of the day - the plane was parked at the gate for over an hour prior to boarding."
Pros: "Professional, friendly, always on-time or earl, nothing lost ever.. Smooth flight. Always the BEST!"
Pros: "The service was good, the snacks are always good."
Cons: "It was a 9:15 pm flight, and was delayed about an hour due to maintenance issues. So it made for a later than expected arrival. But I am glad you took the care to make sure that everything was okay by changing the gate and putting us on another plane. The flight was the bumpiest I have had with JetBlue, but that was just due to the atmosphere."
Cons: "Night flights should include blankets and pillows. (at no extra cost) Just like a hotel. Traveling with bulky blankets and pillows in order to be able to sleep on a night flight is not always possible. JB provides eyemask and ear plugs, which is ridiculous. I can bring my own eyemask and ear plugs. I even paid extra for upgrade seats! The headrests are not adjustable and the recline is barely noticeable. It was a long 6 hour flight! No entertainment. I have flown other airlines to South America and been able to enjoy full feature recent release films, TV shows and games. Why can't JB figure out how to do that on their international flights? No meals. All other airlines offer meal service on their international flights. I pay as much for JB flights as I have for other airlines going to South America. The value for JB tickets just isn't there. To fly JB, picture yourself getting on board with your own pillows, blankets, entertainment and food. That about sums it up."

Not losing my bags

Pros: "Service Departure on time Entertainment"
Cons: "I have no issues"
Pros: "We left early and landed early. Nice staff and attentive. Snacks. (better get rid of the terrible so called barittos-they were awful. Cookies not bad and the snack.

Cons: "Read the first."

Doodles with a pen on the tray table, sticky arm rest, and it looked like the other seats around us were almost in the same shape. I would've rather waited an extra 15 minutes before boarding the plane for it to be clean. I think that was really poor on their part."

We were told to be at Gate 15 and there was a display saying that our flight was leaving from there so we had every reason to believe that that was indeed the boarding gate.

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No changes!"
Pros: "Comfort+ seats are affordable and give me the leg room I need as a 6'3" adult."
Cons: "Seems like Delta provided free upgrades to families with small children in Comfort+. This impacts the flight comfort for us paying customers. Recommend readdressing this policy and not placing small crying children in Comfort+ for free."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"
Cons: "Front right lav door hard to latch, headphones worked on one side only, gap in middle of lie-flat bed."

Cons: "Bathroom floors could be better."
Pros: "After there was a problem with the plane once we had boarded, they were able to switch us to another plane at another gate. There was a short wait, and we only had a delay of 35 minutes."
Cons: "5 hours delay. Most of that time we were on the runway. We even had to deplane and board again. We were given all kind of excuses till the pilot himself said that this is unheard off !!"
Pros: "The cAbin attendant was really good"
Cons: "No problems at all!"
Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided."
Cons: "Boarding process was time consuming due to poor organization from Delta. Unloading process takes forever for the same reason. Despite booking at the same time my fiancee and I didn't get seated next to one another."
Pros: "The flight was great from beginning to end. I have no complaints."
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Love the 757 entertainment system"
Cons: "snack mix is not great delayed takeoff"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule. Each passenger was given free headphones and complimentary beverages and snacks. I love Delta they are a cut above the rest. They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "Tight seats need more legroom"
Pros: "The plane was really nice. It was awesome being able to view movies on the flight."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "CRJ-700 is too small. Only one bathroom & it was broken. Hour late to depart & no explanation given. Never turned off the seatbelt sign & we ended up on the plan for approx 2.5hrs for our 1hr flight."
Pros: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."
Pros: "Everyone very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"
Pros: "The boarding was great.as well as the crew."
Cons: "The seats to small and the food was not that good."
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Boarding process. Paying to check bag when people with roll-on bags were allowed to check them at the gate for free."
Pros: "I like Delta's free messaging wifi although it is very S-L-O-W. I also enjoyed the free entertainment. They have a great variety to choose from."
Pros: "See above..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew, food, plane, everything was excellent"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "The seats are very small even for a petite person."
Pros: "Service was excellent in spite of the terrible weather conditions. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "11 hour overnight delay. Timed out crew. We were given a pillow and blanket to spend the night on the floor in the airport. We we given drinks and a snack box."
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Pros: "When I went into customer service and explained that I lost my flight because of bean at the immigration for almost 2hrs and the woman she say u going on the next flight, one hr later I was heading to my destination Richmond."
Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Cons: "TSA in Atlanta was a nightmare. Really just a little kindness would go a long way."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "Got to Richmond on time."
Cons: "Had the same problems with loading. Loaded from the front, not enough room for carry on, slow us down causing us to take off late. Made up for lost time though."
Pros: "The customer service was great, the crew was great, the flight was great, everything was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Pros: "Upgrades, staff on and off the plane"
Cons: "The reservation system crash, it happened less than 24 hrs before our return flight to come home, fortunately it was resolved but it was a bit stressful"
Pros: "Whoa, we flew Coach and had plenty of space! How marvelous to not be packed in; crew and passengers were wonderfully relaxed, and all went well despite turbulence on takeoff and landing. Great daytime flight experience with my toddler grandchild!"
Pros: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is awful in every way imaginable."
Cons: "We booked tickets to Costa Rica with Copa and they just changed our flights to two days later than the booking. They didn’t even bother to inform us of the change we only found out because we booked through Kayak and they let us know. Apparently Copa expects you to frequently check your booking just in case they’ve changed anything and don’t feel the need to inform their customers of any changes they make. Then we were told we could get a Copa voucher to use for other Copa flights for having to cancel our booking and rebook with another airline as a 48 hour change to our flight made flying with Copa not doable for us. But the website kept telling us we had a voucher that was sent to our email but despite repeated attempts it never came through. And spent hours trying to get through to someone on the phone to sort it out with no success ever getting through. My advice. NEVER EVER FLY WITH COPA."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food was really bad"
Cons: "Easy and fast acces to aircraft."
Cons: "Time or order to boarding , entertainment"
Cons: "Everything it’s fine"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Baggage return was slow."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food selection very good as well"
Pros: "The price I paid for the ticket was outstanding, and that I am not charged for my checked bag."
Cons: "Yesterday, COPA "did not have a system" so they were doing everything MANUALLY. I almost missed my connection because we were supposed to leave San Jose at 11:23, but did not get off the tarmac until almost noon!"
Cons: "Late to leave gate/ cramped"
Pros: "Everything!!!"
Cons: "delay"
Pros: "Crew and service was great."
Pros: "We seré stuck for 50 minutes in the plane, when landing as there was some problem probably with the airport ability to accept us. At first the captain anounced something but then no information was given. It was quite stressing."
Cons: "We"
Pros: "Check in was fast and efficient. Flight was uneventful, no issues."
Cons: "Copa check in is now at Terminal 3, but boarding is from Tom Bradley Inter'l Terminal. We did not see a regular "high placed" sign for Copa which caused us to make two circuits until we saw the street side sigm which is in a nondescript area and easy to miss. My entertainment touch screen was not responsive and sticky. It froze twice. However after bringing it to the attention of the crew, they did make the effort of resetting it. In this regard I highly commend the very tall FA who was a credit to his profession. It still had problems but did work somewhat. I will add that in all my prior experiences in which this problem occurs the FA's are too busy, or forget to reset the entertainment system, so I happy that he did. The interior did not seemed to be very clean there were food stains on the pull out tray and no in flight magazine in my seat pocket. the cabin crew was nice, youngish but did not have enough personality to tell off passengers doing things that they shouldn't out of common courtesy like the passenger seated next to me playing Chinese language videos out loud on his i phone. The same group spent a lot of time burping and then spending an inordinate length of time picking their teeth with wooden toothpicks which did not make for a pleasant scene. I almost lost my appetite seeing which what vigor they went at it, what were they expecting to find? They would then spit the residue in the air making me a bit nauseous. The food was dire especially the two melted cheese/beef/chicken sandwiches served near the last third of the trip. The main lunch ravioli meal served earlier was not bad. The bottom line is that the flight was uneventful with nothing to note, but there is definite room for improvement."
Pros: "Reasonably good food, nice service."
Pros: "Easy flight, good service, attentive crew."
Cons: "Food was not that great."
Cons: "This flight did not have the screens for each seat, leaving no choice to choose what to watch or to see flight info."
Pros: "El tiempo fue rapido"
Cons: "La comodidad del avion. Son muy estrechos."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the connection was short the flight dropped me off on the tarmac never again will I go Copa"
Cons: "I didn't have a seat from Panama to Sao Pablo, because they oversold"
Pros: "Great comfortable flight. Decent sized seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Copa Airlines. Flight delayed an hour due to weather.(understand) We sat on the tarmac for 20 minutes when we got there. We ran to the gate. The guy scanned our boarding pass but didn’t let us board plane. We waited 6 hours to get a new flight booked. They had no line, no organization, they didn’t communicate what was going on, just left us sitting there in limbo. They never apologized for anything. They put us up in a hotel at midnight just to leave to catch our rebooked flight at 7:00AM. We didn’t have a chance to eat because we were stuck in line not knowing anything. When we asked questions they pretended like they didn’t hear us. By the time we got to the hotel we barely had enough time to sleep so we didn’t bother with the free dinner. They absolutely ruined our vacation. I’ve been using Kayak for years. Never again. This is beyond bad customer service; this is a total lack of empathy."
Cons: "The A/C it's very cold, and I asled for a blanket and they did not have one."
Pros: "The lost my bag and couldn’t find it till two days after.... they gave me no voucher or explanation I would like to be refunded foe this terrible experience ...."
Pros: "They offer food and free alcohol. This is not common any longer in the US."
Cons: "In Panama City during a layover, we had to go through security a second time."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "I liked how accommodating the staff was with seating for my family, as I was traveling with two young children and we weren't seated together. There was more leg room than most other domestic air travel companies I have been on. There was no upgrade charge for every little thing, such as blankets, pillows, etc. We were fed on each flight, and alcoholic beverages were at no additional charge. The exit tax to leave Costa Rica was included in our ticket, which I was not aware of until I was leaving the country. (nice surprise). Over all, most other airline companies in the USA have made changes that improve their bottom line, but they have completely ruined any favorable aspect of traveling with their airline (American Airlines, Frontier, Southwest, Delta, etc). Copa has done a great job of providing great service and cost for travelers. Please do not change your business strategy by removing some of the above mentioned benefits I enjoyed in order to improve your profit margin. It is refreshing to know there are still air carriers out there that retain the service that is hoped for by most travelers. Also, Roxana and her entire flight crew were outstanding. Thank you , I will fly with you anytime I have the chance."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The flight crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable, and the flight was quick"
Pros: "The crew was super polite!"
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "I️ think the crew could have come around with drinks more than once in a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The electricity went out at the airport in Panama which caused cancellations and delays. Copa did not handle the situation well. They did not put extra staff to deal with all the people who missed their flights. It was a total mess. I had to wait hours to get a new flight."
Pros: "Overall good experience. Crew member were polite and pilot did well flying."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and way too cold in the plane."
Pros: "14 hour Layover when you have to recheck luggage is terrible. Can't even check in for 8 hours so stuck outside the airport with no place to go until 6 in the morning. Not good at all."
Cons: "14 hour Layover and luggage did not go straight through. Had to recheck baggage after 8 hours. Then wait another 6 hours inside the airport."
Cons: "El aeropuerto de Panamá e el peor que he visitado en mi vida"
Pros: "Copa has the worlds very best gate agents and check-in agents by far... they had a huge line and held very professional atmosphere"
Cons: "Always the good there was none"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked from Panama to Lima, so they leaved us for another day, and we missed the flight from Lima to Cuzco as well as the tour of tomorrrow morning to Machu Pichu, more than 1200 dollars of lost and for sure no responsability from Copa."
Pros: "Excellente customer service"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, causing a lot of stress at the terminal because many people had connecting flights. The Copa staff could not have been more helpful. Copa even put me up for the night at a Sheraton in Panama City when I missed my connection, provided free transportation to and from the airport, and gave me a free dinner voucher. All in all, a well handled experience in the face of disaster."
Cons: "Getting home a day late wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't Copa's fault."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Bad all around"
Pros: "The staff was nice and the flight was timely."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the sanwich served was very small."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
Cons: "The online booking company was confusing and not friendly"
Pros: "The service by the crew in providing the food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "I'm still traveling.. copa rebooked on united.. is coming in at midnight instead of 2pm.. missed an dinner event I have planned. Disappointed some people.. plus I'm still not home.."
Pros: "The service was great. And I had a personal issue so I had to change my schedule and they were very kind and helped me."
Pros: "I loved the drink service. Star Alliance aircraft continue to impress me with their cleanliness and maintenance. The crew service is wonderful. I thought boarding was standard, compared to other airlines. The in flight entertainment was a positive surprise."
Cons: "If you stick to your part of the Panama City terminal, there may be VERY limited food options. For me the only food option in the area was a tiny fried chicken stand."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally kind And efficient The food was ok"
Cons: "Not that much"
Cons: "Leaving vegas to Panama they checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" .. Arriving in Panama we flew to costa Rica again checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" ... Now almost 11 hours later we arrive in Costa Rica and because my passport was ripped they wouldn't let me in the country and sent me back. Why your airlines couldn't have told me this before I got all the way to Costa Rica and passed two check points I don't know. So you guys said you would send us to Puerto Rico but I would have to by my own plane ticket home... Very disappointed in your airline. And to top it off my boyfriend and I had very expensive osprey packs we were traveling with .. We used a copa plastic bag to wrap them up in Vegas so the strings would not get caught .. When we received our packs in Puerto Rico YOUR employees had taken the bags off and cut my boyfriends 300 dollar bag! I will never fly again with your airline."

The crew was great. Seating is cramped and too small.

Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase. An awful awful trip thanks to American Airlines.

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."
Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"
Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "awesome"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."
Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"
Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"
Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "Didn’t fly"
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"

Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"
Pros: "Smooth and quick flight"
Cons: "Warm, no refreshments"
Pros: "Went without a hitch"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"
Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."

Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
Cons: "Delayed!!"
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"
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"
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."
Pros: "On time"
