Pros: "Fast flight; clean cabin: tv screens at every seat"

Pros: "good service good flight"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "Change gate not done properly"

Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"

Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."

Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Fresh food and better entretaiment"

Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."

Cons: "first class service"

Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."

Pros: "Crew Entertainment"
Cons: "Two hour delay"

Pros: "Both the ground crew and flight crew provided exceptional service. They were caring, attentive, and very helpful from the time we arrived at the airport in San Francisco until we landed at Washington Dulles."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived half an hour before schedured"
Cons: "The plane is not clean, seat very small I am not a fat person"

Pros: "Roomy seats and all together comfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't anything we did not like."

Cons: "The gate was switched at the last hour for no apparent reason to a gate that had a delayed flight. My flight was delayed an hour as we waited for the first flight to depart and then my flight to deplane, get cleaned, load and depart. Not sure why this needed to happen."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were fantastic."
Cons: "The application I had to download had cookies."

Pros: "The great selection of movies available on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed rude and not friendly."

Pros: "Also...spacious seating by coach standards"

Pros: "The assistance by the San Jose CR Alaska office re; my misplaced carry on and their super help in the return exchange of backpacks"
Cons: "Meal on board charges"

Pros: "On time. Tons of free movie options. Good snack options. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "Flight was not crowded, so there was an empty middle seat. Arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and the seats were very comfortable. Overall very good experience."

Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"

Pros: "Premium seating has more leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system down. WiFi worked intermittently and was very slow. Without the system, food service was nonexistent. I actually asked for food to purchase only to have an attendant walk to ‘check’ and never return. Abysmal."

Pros: "Entertainment, free movies"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They separated my seat with my 2 years old son, far far away. My 2 yo son got the seat in row 13 while mine was row 23. Then the front desk staff could only help to switch to row 12 and row 13. We’re still not together. That’s horrible. Then when we got on the plane, I asked people around if they don’t mind to switch their seats, but still not working well. The flight attendants didn’t help at all. Just saying, “this is the best we can do.” What did they do? They didn’t even help me to work it out. Then one of the front desk staff came onto the plane and help me out. My son and I finally sit together. But the overall experience sucks! Alaska Airlines needs to train their crew to have more emphatic to the passengers."

Cons: "We only had one drink for a 5 hour flight! Took two hours until we were finally able to get a glass of water."

Pros: "Crew was exceptional - friendly and took care of passengers, including helping an old lady with her bags etc."

Pros: "all was good trip and service nothing to criticize"

Pros: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"

Pros: "Getting to where I needed to go"
Cons: "Stopping the plane to fuel at another airport understandable. But then you ran out of food for purchase on the first flight (I was sitting in the back). Then connecting at LAX was horrible. Everyone had connecting flights. Off the plane onto a bus. then through customs then shuffled outside with no guidance from employees. Finally I found someone to ask bc 15-20 people were around me in the same boat. Where the f do we go we wondered. The employee was insanely rude. I’m attentive and I listen. he was saying pay attention I told you go right blah blah blah. He was literally standing there with his arm out pointing right and never said a word to anyone. So once we figured out to go outside and right we had a stressful ten minute wal hoping we were going the right way. We were! We get to tsa and have to go through screening again. Which is insane bc we just got off a plane. The tsa agent told us this happens everyday with a smerk. On top of her attitude, her and the two other lazy ladies on her line were painfully slow. The other two lines went at least twice as fast(no exaggeration!) made it to gate 66 to find it was changed without notice to 63. Made the flight by two minutes or less sweating from running around!"

Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable, little padding. Flight was over an hour late leaving SJO."

Pros: "Usually we fly United on a direct flight to PDX. That flight is no longer available so we chose Alaska to Seattle. Their entertainment and internet actually works making them a better option than United. Flights were on time, crew was friendly, and the aircraft was clean. No complaints with Alaskan, and actually happy to change airlines after years of being with United even though it is not a direct flight to our destination."

Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."

Pros: "Alaska is great in all ways"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were delayed. Crew was rude. Then we flew to another airport just to get fuel, which further delayed us. We arrived late to the connecting airport and missed our connecting flight home. Not given food vouchers. Had to pay for 1 checked bag despite flying internationally. Overall, very dissasatisfied with Alaska Airlines and I will be sure to go out of my way not to book again with Alaska."

Pros: "Comfort of premium seats. Free drinks and snacks."
Cons: "A little too cold. But I've learned flight are usually cold and went prepared."

Cons: "Chargers didn't work on either flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants were super friendly and responsive."
Cons: "They need an internet service that works outside the U.S. The bus ride to immigration and customs is awful."

Cons: "Would love to see more vegan options on the menu!"

Pros: "Air travel in the US is a disaster. People are cattle. Food is overpriced. Some airlines have policies that out to be criminal in how passengers are treated. The good news is Alaska and just a few other smaller airlines are far less terrible than the rest of the industry. The product is still cramped, unapitizing and not always smooth... but the crew is consistnetly awesome... and their policies are customer friendly"
Cons: "Selling the credit card on every flight for 15 minutes is torture. Force feeding us an informercial once is more than enough but if you have a round trip with connections it is 4 times. I was considering it but by the 4th time I was too annoyed to ever get your credit card"

Pros: "The staff was really friendly, easy boarding, great fast baggage claim. overall great!"

Cons: "charged for ipads, wifi didnt work,"

Cons: "It was a 6 hour flight with no meal provided, only two small cookies. It was an evening flight."

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines was a great, very friendly crew and pilot. boarding was eazy , and the flight was on time."

Pros: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "I arrived to Costa Rica on a flight from El Salvador, police hold a long line which made a lot of people loose their connection flight including myself. After losing my flight, Alaska did NOTHING TO HELP to get a new flight or get hotel accommodation. Alaska employees showed great disregard for helping stranded costumers that lose their flight even when it was not passengers foul. I will try NOT to flight on Alaska anymore!!!!"

Cons: "More water offered during trip"

Pros: "Online check-in, boading"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I was completely rerouted at the last minute to take 3 flights instead of just one and completely missed all of my other connections. Avianca forced to to travel for over 36 hours and continued to have all of my rerouted flights delayed. It was the worst travel experience of my life and i received no help or compensation for missing all of my other flights. All thy gave me was one stale muffin. I will never fly with this airline again."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "To wait"

Pros: "It is super comfortable and the entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The food didn't taste great. It seems to be a general problem with Avianca pilots but usually the take-off and landings are bad. You will usually hear people say "aaaaah" during landing just because the pilots depart waaay to fast."

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 crew in Costa Rica was new and it took more time to departure because it got a little bit messy at the beginning"

Pros: "The flight was in scheduled"
Cons: "There was ONE crew member from Avianca welcoming passengers as soon as you got there, but this person disappeared after he got the forms filled out ... I didn't know who to ask about the vip room because there was no one from Avianca around so I had to spend my 2 hours sitting in the waiting room without wifi and been Cold and hangry when I as a executive class passenger was able to have access to the VIP room . That I didn't like . Also, when we were boarding the plane there was another plane for the same gate that we were boarding passengers, too ... In another words I didn't like that airport . I'll make sure never again if I can to go through la Paz, Bolivia."

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

Pros: "everything except boarding"

Pros: "La comida muy mala"

Pros: "Crew"

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

Cons: "The couple next to me kept getting wine from the flight crew and were obnoxiously drunk. I couldn't hear my movie, couldn't sleep, couldn't read, but also couldn't leave. I was hungry because Avianca only served pork dishes I couldn't eat and didn't offer me something else. Please consider ALL of your customers' comfort when creating your food and beverage policies."

Pros: "My seat was comfortable"
Cons: "I had to pay too much for extra pounds. The tv sound was not working at the seat at was at. The crew was to slow to remove the trash after food. They were so slow that coffe was not provided because by that time people were asking for it there was turbulence. Too slow the crew from this flight."

Cons: "Passengers were filthy. Not the airline's fault."

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

Pros: "Everithing the comfort, clean plane, the service, smooth landing"

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."

Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."

Cons: "Everything was perfect."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"

Cons: "Delta is top notch!"

Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"

Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Pros: "First class flight attendant shantee was fantastic. Breakfast was strange menu...but tssted ok."
Cons: "Better menu choice."

Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."

Pros: "The entire crew was amazing they were professional friendly and accommodating"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and fast."
Cons: "Run from gate G to gate C was very tight especially since the first flight was late."

Pros: "Flight crew was ok"
Cons: "Missing my connecting flight due to Delta incompetence and spending Christmas travel in ATL again."

Pros: "It is only a 40 minute flight how bad can it be. No in flight entertainment or beverage service, there never is, no time. Understandable"
Cons: "As with any flight since they started squeezing seats tighter, I am over 6 foot so there is no such thing as being comfortable!"

Cons: "Compostable"

Pros: "All the movie choices. Wish TVs came in all aircraft and/or flights 2+ hours. :-)"

Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."

Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."

Pros: "Boarding from back to front. Making early boarders wait to the side when they tried to embark too soon."
Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Pros: "Staff, service, options"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"

Pros: "Cannot. Figure out how to use the wifi."

Pros: "Being on time."

Cons: "The gate crew did not change seats for my family & I to sit together (spouse, baby & I, grand parents) The flight was late leaving as the troops returning home were late. That part was ok, but they could have changed their seats so my family and i could sit together. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t have minded given they were all on their 4th flight if the day. It seemed that the gate crew was not budging. If my parents hadn’t had 2 seats together my daughter would have had to sit with a stranger. That’s not acceptable."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"

Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."

Pros: "Left on time, plane was clean and arrived early"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."

Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."

Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."

Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."

Pros: "Time was made in the air and we did not miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "The flight was very late."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."

Pros: "Good seats."

Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"

Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."

Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."

Cons: "No entertainment available"

Cons: "See above description"

Pros: "seating at row 2a was roomy enough only because the seat in front was empty do no danger of a recline. The service was excellent, entertainment options excellent and products in bathroom are nice - Malin & goetz. The captain came out and greeted everyone, which I appreciated"
Cons: "The food served for dinner was not great. Pasta with a mushroom sauce. Sauce was really soupy. I'm not really crazy about the snack basket options - not enough savory and no chocolate. The seats on the new 737-900 are not comfortable"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."

Pros: "Comfort with entertainment."
Cons: "No food options at all."

Cons: "Old plane. No seat back entertainment. No USB ports"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing,it was all great"

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."

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "We made it on time"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the crew can offer water more often"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Broke my wheel off my check luggage, food wasnt good. Staff are somewhat curt & could be more friendly/accomodating."

Pros: "Quick board and deboard and the breakfast was OK"
Cons: "Flight was almost 5 hours long and we weren't allowed to bring beverages on the plane from the Panama airport (which was kind of nuts in my opinion, since I'd just gotten off another plane and had already gone through security); the flight crew only distributed beverages once. I've taken 3 hour flights where the beverage cart has gone up and down the aisle twice! I was really thirsty by the time I got off the plane, and then by the time I got through customs, it had been like 6 hours since I last had anything to drink!! They really should have offered customers AT LEAST water at some point later in the flight."

Pros: "Good airline. Try to use then often. ."
Cons: "The plane was way too cold for me"

Pros: "It was my first time with copa airlines. Excellent experience and impressed with the services that they provide, including lunch, dinner and even breakfast. So surprised when I was provided option to select breakfast from the 2 (omllet or pancake) on just 1 hour and 20 minutes flight from Panama City to Costa Rica."

Pros: "All the way it should be!"

Pros: "I was impressed that even though it was such a short flight the crew worked hard to provide everyone food and drinks."
Cons: "This was the first Copa flight that we didn't receive a full meal. The crew also seemed more serious and less friendly than on other Copa flights."

Cons: "El aeropuerto de Panamá e el peor que he visitado en mi vida"

Pros: "The flight & the attendants were all great - the food was good & the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost an 1 hr. waiting for the airport to load the luggage. I could not understand the person making the announcements on the plane. It was garbled & so none of us really knew what he said on any of his announcements, We arrived at D.C. & we did not get our luggage. They said at the D.C. airport we would receive an email within 24 hours regarding our luggage. We didn't. They gave us a # to call - no one answered that #. We were supposed to get an email with our case # - we didn't. We were told on the plane we would get a bag of necessities - but we didn't. My husband had to keep calling different #'s to try to get ahold of someone to tell them about our luggage."

Cons: "Almost wish the flt was longer"

Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Cons: ". The tem let me wait for ever in something I wanted to ask as a favor they said wait a second and never come back to ask what did I need."

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."

Cons: "No non-meat option for food"

Pros: "On-time departure and arrival Friendly and courteous staff"
Cons: "Old Plane No USB charging connectors"

Pros: "Very friendly, courteous and professional service"

Pros: "Well organized/great crew"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like. Will definitely fly Copa again"

Pros: "Good staff. Clean. A lot of room."
Cons: "No self checking in kiosk."

Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Bad all around"

Cons: "My mom had wheelchair service and the person who take care of the put her on lines fir two hours and she missed the flight connection. Even do she showed him several times the boarding pass fir the next flight. And then set her on the wrong area."

Pros: "Breakfast was actually good for airline food. Boarding was way late. The security in panama made everyone throw out water so I wasted $4. They also were not thorough at all and abandoned the metal detector at one point."

Cons: "There was no food for me, nothing at all! Nor a bag of peanuts"

Cons: "10 hr delay in San José. A nightmare!"

Pros: "The fare was relatively low so I was not expecting much beyond safe transit between Costa Rica and Panamá. I was pleasantly surprised by the robust flight crew that all seemed knowledgeable, very friendly, and professional. I particularly enjoyed the quick and easy check in, no extra charges for my very large checked item, in flight entertainment via headrest screens, ample leg room and storage, and the ability to charge my phone during the flight via USB. Even though I was a passenger in coach, we were provided a light snack and free alcohol and beverages during the short flight. All in all, even as a very frequent traveler, Copa surpassed my expectations. I will definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "The only thing I felt could be improved was the boarding process and signage. I was originally in an exit row seat but was unexpectedly relocated as I boarded. The explanation was quite vague, even though I asked the gentleman to repeat himself twice, but overall the change was fine. I was moved up a few rows and kept my window seat preference, so I wasn't upset. I only wish I had been notified earlier at the check in desk rather than holding up the line of passengers behind me."

Cons: "Both ways we had to sit and wait on board for over 2 hours on tarmac prior to take off. Captain said needed more fuel and to fix problem or to lessen weight. Tried to get bottle of water because I was dying of thirst and staff could not sell a bottle of water. Only give a 3oz cup full. Which was gone in 2 seconds."

Pros: "Everything was ok, easy, fast and got special attention in the airport for flying in copa. We didn't had to make the line for security in Costa Rica's airport"
Cons: "Nothing I can tell"

Pros: "Service is good and food is fine"
Cons: "Not happy with the lack of tv screens and movies."

Pros: "All of my flights were on time. Flight staff and gate attendants were curteous. Planes were clean and service on the plane was wonderful."

Cons: "The online booking company was confusing and not friendly"

Pros: "I really liked the flight I had on Copa Airlines this morning . I am please with the professional air that was shared. I will use the airline again and again."
Cons: "I did not like the web checkin experience, it was a very frustrating and crashed each time I used it."

Pros: "Although my flight was very short, the staff was kind and the food great! May have been one of the smoothest flight I've ever been on."

Pros: "Nice, on time and excellent service onboard"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"

Pros: "good food"

Pros: "The Service that copa has is incomparable. I hope the company doesnt change the"
Cons: "The plane didnt have screens on each chair...."

Pros: "The only good thing was boarding"
Cons: "Well i would think it would be a better expiernce cuz I've heard that copa was a good airline and their service was excelent but i was wrong the food was dry and the people were rude the entertainment was a joke. The music would play the same song's over and over."

Pros: "- nice staff - food on the plane"

Cons: "Bad food"

Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice, and caring, they brought me a new pair of headsets when the original one broke."

Pros: "I liked that they had a snack for such a short trip, and the flight attendants seemed okay."
Cons: "The worst thing was that after boarding the plane spent more time on the ground, waiting to fly than it spent actually flying and making the trip. I think it was because it's such a small airport and the plane had to wait. Also, when we got there we had to take a bus because there was something wrong with the gate, that took a long time and was unpleasant."

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "Boarding at Panama was a mess. Completely disorganized chaos. So bad on the other end there were immigration people screaming at the crew "Copa - help your passengers a little"."

Cons: "If they can’t serve beverages. Can we be allowed o e water bottle through security?"

Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our flights got delayed from Belize city and lost all connections. Had to sleep in the airport. Very disappointed with American Airlines. Will avoid in the future."

Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."

Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."

Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"

Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."

Cons: "Poor comfort"

Pros: "Almost nothing."
Cons: "Communication in delays (we ended up being delayed for 13 hours in incremental delays), poor planning, lack of knowledge at the operations level around how long crew has worked, boarded the plane then unboarded the plane as the pilot decided he wanted tea, staff unempathetic and dismissive"

Pros: "During boarding the first class cabin attendant gave me water so I could take a pill I had forgotten."
Cons: "Lav could have been cleaner. Boarding area at airport is small and crowded for all airlines. Stairs to aircraft instead of ramps."

Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There were no headrests for sleeping or TVs on thr airplanes. Also the flight departure time kept getting pushed back and ended up leaving over and hour late as did our last flight with american."

Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"

Pros: "many movies"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"

Pros: "Free upgrade despite the delay so it was great."

Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."

Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."

Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."

Pros: "Quick, efficient"

Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."

Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"

Pros: "The 777-300 is a beauty. So spacious! Traveling in the main cabin of this plane feels like you're in first class compared to other planes. Great in-flight entertainment. Clear communication from captain and crew. Overall, the best plane ride I've had in the last 5 years."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed a little unorganized but not a huge deal."

Pros: "Friendly, engaged and helpful check-in staff at Fiumicino (a first), great aircraft (777-200), early landing and no wait time for a gate or baggage reclaim. Seat back entertainment was also excellent relative to other flights, as was the flight crew."

Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."

Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "The waiting time due to the storm and the no communication from the crew . 5 hours strand on the tarmac plus 9 flying."

Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."

Pros: "Pretty efficient."

Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"

Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."

Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."

Cons: "They had the wrong flight times which made my connection impossible so they had to book a later flight for my wife and I, Did not get the seats we paid for and initially did not have us even sitting together until we insisted."

Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."

Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"

Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing no turbulence.no issues at baggage claim.I boarded later and had to gate check because overhead bins were full."

Pros: "American did a good job. DFW concourse was ice cold and the speaker system was terrible could not understand a word she said. Very obvious DFW is outdated and tired airport."

Cons: "The selection of movies and tv shows was very poor. The plane was packed and the seats uncomfortable. The flight was delayed so we missed our connection and none of the staff could tell us where to go for more information.The worst international flight I've ever experienced."

Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."

Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."

Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."

Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."

Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."

Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought some items when I was in Belize I get to Dallas to check my items into my bag and American Airlines has one person checking in bags and one guy standing in the hallway with a red coat on telling us where to go so I stood in the line for and hour and ended up loosing my items and missed my flight so I'm on a seven hr wait cause American Airlines can't get bags checked in on time"

Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"

Cons: "No entertainment on the flight at all."

Pros: "Mostly everything"
Cons: "More snack options."
