Pros: "No hay variedad en el entretenimiento."
Cons: "Food served on plane"

Cons: "Make sure to repeat announcements in English if possible for non-Spanish speaking passengers"
Pros: "We never too this flight as Avianca cancelled our original flight. Your partner in Airfare.com was absolutely zero help in helping us resolve the issue. They told me I had to contact Avianca directly to resolve the matter. The only flights they had available were on different days."
Cons: "I am still trying to get a refund from the airline for a flight that they knew I was never going to take. I will never use any sort of third-party service for booking anything again. What is the point using it if it will be zero help when I did not cause the changes that occurred??"

Cons: "Was very warm"
Pros: "The crew members where extremely nice. I had traveling on business class, with a seat that gets flat, so I was able to sleep most of the flight"

Cons: "The 11 hour flight delay and the guy putting duct tape on the wing. I didnt have an issue with him personally, more the fact that he was duct taping the plane."
Cons: "The airplane was too cold"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "the service at the airport was terrible. personal is not enough and also the avianca customer service is awful. I will never use that airline bedore"

Cons: "not enough water passed around"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and uneventful with no major issues. The staff at avianaca customer service were helpful."
Cons: "The flight was rescheduled over and over and canceled and rescheduled and everything was just a mess. If I hadn't had internet in Colombia we would have been majorly screwed."
Cons: "At take off water from the AC unit started Pouring my seat and my boyfriend’s seat (window and middle row 32 seats K and J). We sprung up to check to see if a water bottle from the overhead compartment was leaking. We were immediately yelled at by crew to sit down because it was take off. They didn’t see the water that was pouring down on us (from where they were seated) and other passengers were also trying to explain to crew members water was pouring down on us- luckily there was no one in the isle seat so we were able to shift one seat over. Otherwise we would have had to sit with water pouring down on us for 30 mon. The crew came over and said they could switch out the seat cushion. But that did nothing really because our clothes were totally soaked and it smelled bad from the water from the AC. Water also go on our electronics (headphones, iPad and phones) So it was a horrible 8 hour flight back to Los Angeles. Really sucks - I was a fan of Avianca - now I’m not impressed with how they maintain their planes or customer service for passengers who get soaked by their plane’s malfunction."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Airline doesn’t tell you until 5 minutes before takeoff that you have to download their app to use their WiFi service . Pilot tells us we’ll be landing 5 minutes before 10 in NY but in fact we don’t land until 10:30 with no explanation Very old and outdated plane. Just terrible . hope I don’t fly this airline again ."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and they seemed wine as one of the beverages"
Cons: "The staff was rude to everyone including older adults. They constantly rolled their eyes. It was so disrespectful. At one point I was returning from the bathroom to my seat and was scolded by a flight attendant to return to me seat. I thought it was Adam Avianaca flight and was very disappointed. Crew was from Spain, I believe"

Food was okay and the Airline was completely unorganized. You can only pick your seat 24 hours prior your flight! Price is good but that's about it!"
Cons: "I had a long long layover in Guayaquil, more than 5 hours. The plane was due to depart at 6, and the ground crew did not arrive until 5 a.m. There were 25 people waiting in line.

Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work. I brought it to the attention of a flight attendant since all the attendant lights weren't". So they were having a glitch I the system. He said he had them reset mine. Hee must have furthermore until they did the beverages. They tried twice, nothing worked. No movies, no audio, no light. Nothing done, no compensation. NYC to Seattle, a long flight tho not even read my magazines."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "Well, even United brings a tray of waters on the short flight from Portland to Redmond. Hard to believe it was impossible to serve some drinks on this 1 hour fairly empty flight from Seattle. Also, when taking off the plane surged and slowed several times. I had to wonder if the pilot was in training?"
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: "Great crew presentation of safety and other announcements, friendly anf courteous, except..."
Cons: "crew seemed to arbitrarily decide not to serve anything on the flight. Announced the flight was too short to serve anything, so they didn't even try. I've flown this hop many times and have never heard this excuse."
Cons: "I thought I stated this before about the flight (5), Treatment (5) all the rest (5), but Atlanta Airport does not support disabled people using scooters to get from one plane to another. With more people using these, only a matter of time until a reporter males this an ISSUE. Meanwhile I will make every effort NOT to use ATLANTA HARTSFIELD. This includes my wife, also using a scooter."
Cons: "Flight delays automatically book you to the next available flight after speaking with a representative stating that you would still like to stay on the same flight and receiving confirmation that will happened."
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to late arrival of plane. Crew was not courteous and rushed people to board"
Pros: "On time departure, clean plane, competent and professional flight attendants, pilot announcements were clear and relevant"
Cons: "Check in took forever. Delta reservations made some type of mistake when they cancelled our flight to CUN and I needed to rebook the flight. It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake. Then, as we boarded our flight, the bar code reader at the gate indicated another error that the gate agent took about 10 minutes to correct. CUN Delta staff was great and we appreciated the efforts they made to direct us around the airport."
Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "We liked the jet-ways to get to the plane, the food was acceptable. the plane was clean and the crew was helpful. The missing luggage was found and delivered to my home."
Cons: "The seats were so tight that even average size people had trouble getting their seats back a little. Somehow kids were placed in exit rows and seat exchanges had to be made. They ended up in my row. One piece of my luggage showed it was available at the conveyor but couldn't be found. It delayed our long day and was frustrating to think it was missing. No distinction where Delta has it's gates in Mexico City."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "Nothing to like.."
Cons: "Everything about the flight..."

Cons: "Everything ok"
Cons: "The gluten free food, I was food poisoned with it! It was horrible! Use better airplanes, the movie was ok but the system is old."
Cons: "Copa check-in in Chicago was awful, and it wasn’t just for my family and me. The manger and several employees were rude and seemed clueless about what they were doing. I shouldn’t be surprised that none of our luggage arrived because of the unorganized check-in but it just added to the frustration."
Pros: "Crew was not aware of the drunken state of the 2 passengers sitting next to me . The 2 passengers got on the flight each with 2 beers . They finished it even before the flight took off . They then requested more drinks from the crew which they were given. I personally told one of the crew not to ser"

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable Food was terrible."
Cons: "Food on COPA is terrible."

Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"
Pros: "There is nothing to like because this flight never happened."
Cons: "Instead of going Chicago -> Panama City I was routed to Chicago --> Newark --> Bogota --> Cartagena. This means instead of arriving 8pm, I would now be arriving 8am the following day (I actually arrived after 1pm, so all in, it was about 30 hours of travel experience). At the request of the United agent in Minneapolis, I got in Customer Service line in Chicago to have my bags properly transferred to my connecting flights. After an hour in line, the agent proved to me by showing me the screen she was working on, that my bags would be routed directly to my final destination. She was confused why I was told to even come in line, so, great, another hour wasted."

Pros: "Short flight and thankfully I slept a bit."

Pros: "Friendly service, food and drink included, and free luggage. Seats had limited leg room, but otherwise comfortable. Would select this airline again!"
Pros: "Seats didn't recline, entertainment was poor."
Pros: "My trip went really smooth with no delays. They were able to switch my seat to be closer to my friends that were flying with me with no hassle at all. I was surprise that they provided food on the trip, I have been in different airlines that don’t provide anything except for a drink. I would for sure use Copa Airlines for future South American trips"

Pros: "The crew and staff were wonderful and professional"
Pros: "The food and flight crew were good. Both of my flights they served breakfast, just for reference."

Cons: "Hice el webcheck in y aun asi me pusieron de ultimo en toda línea, entiendo que habian los que se quedaron del dia anterior, pero puso estrés en mi, también salimos tarde, y mas valijas se quedaron en Chicago y en lugar de mandarlas a mi casa, tuve que viajar 3 hours al aeropuerto y recogerlas yo misma despues que me habían dicho que las mandarían."
Pros: "Service."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Flight was on time and affordable."
Cons: "No drinks were served in first 2 hours, and meal was very small. Also no customs forms were handed out in the flight, so it too a while in the airport to fill it out."

Pros: "I love flying Copa! My friend and I had only a 40 minute layover on Tuesday morning from San Jose, CR to Panama City to Chicago. We were pretty worried about missing the flight in Panama City because that meant we missed our fight home. The crew was wonderful and changed our seats to the front of the plane so we wouldn't miss the flight. If he hadn't had done that, we 100% would have missed the flight .I will recommend Copa to everyone."

Cons: "I was forced/tricked to check my instrument on the boarding gate when what i really asked for is for the crew to take it o tha plane or for them to let me take it on carry on. Someone lied to me and then they checked in with the loggage"
Cons: "Not enough smiling from the crew"
Cons: "My seat wasn’t clean. Dirt was visible. We used Clorox wipes to clean it before sitting down. If someone had previously sat there with an illness, we would certainly be at risk. Very disappointing to see during Covid-19 outbreak."

Second day at airport i found out they booked me on a three leg flight home at 8 AM althought i was on the phone with them at 1:30 AM and I was never informed about the flight they offered at 8 AM.
