Everything was great except the hour delay.

Flight was cancelled by the airlines

The flight was cancelled without any notification at the last minute, causing a scramble of insanity as they rebooked all of us on other carriers. We’re standing in line waiting to check bags, kiosks not working, attendants don’t have any information.

Offer better food options . Even if for purchase

The entertainment unit not work. It kept freezing up, the map kept moving around to other parts of the globe, so,e functions didn't operate at all. Finally less than halfway through the flight the unit froze up all together and was completely unusable. Also, the seat wasn't able to recline as the button on the seat was completely missing!

Back to front boarding works, drop a lot of the prepared categories to Wheelchair, babies, military and 1st class, then board back to front, it works. had difficulty seeing phone to get free wifi, the items you need to check need to be in bigger font.

Pros: "This is a super aircraft with many amenities. The flight was smooth for the most part. Loved the movie and the classical music. The crew seemed to work well with each other and was very friendly."

Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."

Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."

Pros: "Delta is cheap, probably for a reason. Also had no food available on a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Delta lost our bags immediately. We were two hours early and had more than an hour between our connecting flights. Our connecting flights were literally next door to each other. However, our bag didn't make it to the connecting flight. No excuse, no explanation. We were on a 3 night vacation, and we didn't get our bags for more than 30 hours."
Pros: "Short flight so no food, just soda/pretzels. Left on time, arrived a little early. Delta staff were average."
Cons: "Other passengers who bring carry-ons that are too large, and airlines that refuse to enforce the size limits. This creates unnecessary boarding delays and stress and conflict among the passengers and Delta staff.

Cons: "Maybe less cold the temperature."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process. Hassle free flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."

I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Pros: "Seats were standard. Crew standard."
Cons: "Communicating the 30 minute time frame to change planes and are seated in the back of the plane. You will miss your flight and pay a very hefty penalty and possibly have to wait 5 hours for the next flight if you checked in your baggage. All this for a 1 hour flight."
Pros: "Que el avion era de 2 filas conn2 lugares"
Cons: "La comodidad.. Son muy estrechos..."

Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."
Pros: "The welcoming and attentive service"
Pros: "Flight on time."

Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."

Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"
Cons: "---"
Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"

Cons: "No complaints....."
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "Seats felt thin"
Cons: "There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told."
Pros: "Tim was great!"
Cons: "The a/c wasn't working. Flight attendants acted annoyed by the people flying, no connectivity to gogo inflight."
Pros: "The air hostess didn’t smile while offering cookies, but she wasn’t rude. She later asked my fellow passenger to move to another window seat and I had the comfort of 2 seats."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic. Very helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice causing us to miss our layover. The only way they initially could correct the issue was by booking us a flight 5 days later. Finally found a helpful person at the gate after calling American Airlines and getting no help. We lost day of our trip, but it’s better than 5."
Cons: "Get the plane to terminal bridge and not buss the passengers to and from to plane."
Cons: "Coach seats are cramped and little under seat space in window seats. Plus CMH de-icing was a mess (although not AA’s fault)."
Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."
Pros: "Take offs equaled lands"
Cons: "Dirty and tied plane seat way to tiely spaced. Disinterested crew. I hate stowage"
Pros: "The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood."
Pros: "short flight"
Pros: "Biscuits are awesome"

Cons: "Flight delay at every single step of the way Crew was great though"
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Pros: "We where late boarding, jet didn’t have fuel, we had delay after delay. This flight is never on time. every time I have taken this flight I am delayed. Also getting into charolette, we always spend at least 20 min on the tarmac"
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "The seats were quite comfortable."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make any legs of the trip. AA should allow downloading the app on the airplane."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."
Pros: "Excellent service gate to gate."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"
Cons: "Flight from Columbus was delayed due to crew member family emergency. AA said I would miss my connection in Charlotte. The only alternate connection was too late to complete the trip. I nearly canceled the trip. I reboarded and made my connection with 10 minutes to spare. Also, my destination (Greenville) was only 90 miles from Charlotte, the connecting airport (unbeknownst to me). AA should have offered the option of driving to my destination."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very small aircraft that didn’t even have a working bathroom. All roll-ons had to be checked because overhead bins were too small to hold. Seats didn’t recline and rows were too close. Very uncomfortable aircraft."
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."

Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "Could have been given more snacks for 3 hr flight"
Cons: "The boarding process."
Cons: "It was delayed."
Pros: "Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment and the seats were old and uncomfortable and it was ridiculously cold"
Cons: "Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Very accommodating"
Cons: "All was good, flight attendants were exceptional"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After waiting for the plane to receive some kind of maintenance for hours on end and missing our connecting flight, they finally sent us to another city to catch a different plane to our final destination."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Everything was excellent about the flight. I had no issues"
Pros: "The crew, as always"
Cons: "Being sectioned off from 1st class"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "There wasn't anything that I did not like I wish they gave you peanuts instead of pretzels or chips"

Pros: "Flashy new seats."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment meaning movie selection and staff was real friendly. Plus flights were on time."
Cons: "The seat need more cushion especially for long flights and more leg room. Very uncomfortable after awhile of prolonged sitting."
Pros: "For the most part the people and workers were very nice"
Cons: "Couldn’t add baggage with the ticket bought online. Once I did it cost $100 to add 1 bag. Checking in process was the worst, as many kiosks didn’t work and the software seemed buggy."
Cons: "Nothing different from budget airlines nowadays apart from high price of flight, which is what it is all about really. Felt like a Ryanair flight for 4 or 5 times the price. Could have been SOMETHING complimentary to justify price."
Pros: "Arriving before the schedule"
Pros: "Crew were intuitive - how about a little drink / you look as though you’d like another cup of coffee / come and have some chocolate / without me having to ask ."
Cons: "27D has got those awful metal boxes under the seat in front ."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Boarding and ticketing bin Berlin took over an hour and a half."
Pros: "The airport is nice"
Cons: "But they didn’t let me in because I didn’t show up for the first flight"
Cons: "i was asked to pay to check in my luggage :("
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, head rest is adjustable, good leg room, nice entertainment selection and no extra charge for adult beverages!"
Cons: "When we arrived at London Heathrow, there was no gait, no stairs, and no buses to transport passengers to the terminal. We were stuck on the plane for an hour waiting. The crew was helpful in keeping everyone informed and let us know they called the airport staff multiple times for the stairs/buses to get us off and those with connections (me) going. The crew was frustrated too."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Could not find any electric power for my computer in terminal 5 Seats totally incomfortable, no good support for my back, less space for my long legs in this intercontinental flight than in the previous Geneva-Heathrow flight. Food far too greasy, no fruit, no vegetables. No electrical power for the computer, only for the phone. And the landing in Boston: the captain just "threw" the plane on the runway. I thought he had a lot of cross wind. Talked to him later. Told me this was the normal procedure ?? The crew: some are doing very well, with enthusiasm, some of them could do another job."
Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"
Pros: "Boarding process was very orderly. The 2-4-2 seating arrangement is quite nice for economy as it is a bit more spacious & comfortable. Sat in window seat with a huge compartment storage next to me by window - great for easy access to electronics, etc.. Great movie selection. Short and efficient flight and my fears about basic economy ticket were dissipated as I was able to check a bag and get better seat assignment at airport."
Cons: "Slow service, not served dinner until almost 10pm. Lights were never turned down so difficult to sleep altho I had eye mask and noise cancelling headphones. Seats are not super comfortable but if you bring neck pillow and blanket it’s better."
Pros: "I liked that it was a short flight."
Cons: "I didn’t dislike anything about the flight."
Pros: "In spite of delay caused by luggage to be taken of the aircraft, flight arrived to a Rome on time.captain kept us well informed of the reasons for delay. Boarding was done efficiently with care for people with children and elderly passangers."
Pros: "Made it to Zurich"
Cons: "48 hrs and as far as I know the bag has not been put on a BA flight after missing my flight on Wednesday! Also, I asked for a cup of water, but I guess I had to buy water because I was basically ignored,"
Pros: "The flight was pretty cold and the attendants came with extra blankets for everyone"
Cons: "Ran out of ice for drinks early"
Pros: "Simple. Arrived (late) to my destination(s) in one piece. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Expected more for my money...In flight services (movies) screens were very small and hard to see. No charging outlets for phones. Flights were delayed. No sense of urgency mentality? (Don’t get me started on the London airport experience)."
Pros: "It was a peaceful flight"
Cons: "BA just don't get holiday travel. They are hopeless at boarding a plane efficiently, the crew appear uncomfortable with charging for food and drinks, etc. BA compares v badly to Easyjet, Ryanair and Norwegian for efficiency and focus when dealing with holiday makers"
Pros: "Almost everythibg was great"
Cons: "The screen wasnt working properly"
Pros: "Friendliness and professionalism of the personnel."
Pros: "The crew did their best. They were efficient and polite, no complaints"
Cons: "First of all, it wasn’t British Airways, it was operated by American Airlines. The seats were cramped; just barely enough kneeroom and I’m only 5’10”. There were no monitors on the seat backs and no choice of entertainment, only monitors hanging from the ceiling. I suppose the airline assumes, probably correctly, that these days everybody has their own entertainment on laptop or tablet. The problem here, though, was that there were no charging plugs at the seats, so you’d better have a full battery when you get on and hope it lasts. Of course, I could have just read the inflight magazine, except that my reading light was broken. Food was decent for airline food."
Pros: "The trip was short flight and on time"
Pros: "Good staff and food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Pros: "It was good traveling with American Airlines. Good service from Chicago to London."
Cons: "I did not like the service between British airways from London to Gothenburg, they charge you even for water. They did not offer free drinks like soda or water, they charged. Even though the flight was international."
Pros: "The crew was not good"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Leg rest was uncomfortable. I kept getting notices that the flight was delayed up to 2hrs but got there and was on time. Then couldn't check in till a certain time; what's up with that?"
Pros: "Friendly crew once you’re on the plane."
Cons: "Two flights canceled due to weather - that’s understandable. The website, app, twitter help, and phone numbers not working for info or to rebook = unacceptable. Seats in premium economy are cramped and tight."
Pros: "More seat room. 18inch width. Smaller cabins. Soooo quiet."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Not able to walk about the plane becuase of configuration"
Cons: "We did NOT fly on British Airways (BA). N/A rating would be just as good but was not available to check in the beginning survey page. While I was satisfied with Kayak, we had to cancel a nonrefundable flight. BA Customer Relations rep was courteous but, should have told us that when we paid the flight cancellation fee of $500 (for two) that it was nonrefundable. No such warning was provided. Thus, it was a costly loss for flight tickets, seat reservations, and to top it, a cancellation Another thing I do not like about BA, is that you pay International Service Fees. I will never book a flight with British Airways."
Pros: "The A380 is quiet and is less suceptible to turbulence than smaller planes. Climate was comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are close together and there wasn't enough legroom for me, I'm 6'2". The seat pockets are a. It small and it was hard to fit my iPad Pro."
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time"
Cons: "Baggage didn't make the connection. No free food or drinks"
Cons: "I will continue traveling with this airline .,"
Pros: "I like everything ,because the way they treating me and I was feeling very comfortable . Thank you very much ."
Cons: "I coul not say anything that U did not like."
Pros: "The crew were extremely friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Considering there were a couple of empty seats I don't see why I had to check my bag."
Pros: "The crew above all were cordial, warm and approachable. Not only to the passengers, but to one another. They all seemed to get along really well with one another and that set the tone for a long but comfortable flight. It's probably one of the most memorable of all my flights b/c the experiences."
Cons: "Better in flight food choices. Maybe I should've purchased a meal. Will definitely order a meal the next time I fly on BA. And maybe a different seat type so that it's more comfortable."
Cons: "crew not very friendly ,I had to ask for water 2 or 3 times before it was given to me"
Pros: "If I had another option for a direct flight to London, I'd take that over traveling with BA."
Cons: "They ran out of the meat option for my meal. Understandable but I couldn't eat the veg option either. The flight attendant literally said to me that they had no other food on board - a complete lie of course which I didn't appreciate given the $1500 ticket I paid for the flight."
Cons: "Since 1st flight was extremely delayed due to stupidity of staff unable to get head count of passengers, the BA system rebooked my 2nd flight which should hve not happened because I made it to my original flight prior to gate closing AND that flight was delayed anyways so I made it in plenty of time to make it yet my seat was taken from me and then boarding started. And I have to state WHY this BA flight was delayed - because they "had problem getting the catering on board" thus missed runway time. Anyways, since I was rebooked I went to my new gate, waited many hours to hve another issue, where they couldnt find my new seat in system and changed, and again flight was delayed this time due to having a flat tire... Common BA, seems your quality dropped 99%."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours!"
Cons: "I have to request several times for a glass of water. My seat was broken and didn't care about anyone extra needs."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment, seats Even the toilets were decent - stocked with hygienic wipes"
Cons: "Wish I could afford the nice 1st class seats :)"
Pros: "the seats,leg space"
Cons: "crew should be more involved"
Pros: "In flight service and food were excellent"

Pros: "ON TIME flights! Check in process was super easy. Good food. Felt well taken care of by crew."
Cons: "Boarding not done by rows."

All was fine in regards to my investment

On time

Unfortunately lost our luggage on return trip. Hopefully we will get it tomorrow.

There were no individual air control for the seats so there was very little moving air throughout the entire flight. My entertainment system froze for twenty minutes of the flight. The check in process was slow and inefficient. The food was bland.

Nothing is offered on the flight not even water spacialy after running around to find the gate, not on time made international connections difficult"

Pros: "Transatlantic flight with 1980-s entertainment. Both ways...Thirld world ...I was ashamed the airline was American"

Cons: "We didn't start boarding until the scheduled departure time. Made my connection much tighter than it needed to be."

Pros: "Quick pickup of baggage."
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "I got fever after I boarded the flight. After the lunch/dinner , probably 30 mins after it I asked for Hot water or some hot tea as I was feeling cold. Both the flight attendants told me the service is closed. If this is your hospitality, ba**s to you from next time."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "No delayed flights"
Pros: "Enternainment selections were ok."

Cons: "Hard to see how anything could have been done about this, but on my flight every seat was taken (except the one next to me) so I thought I'd have a little extra leg room....NOT!!! Then a 300-lb guy sits in the seat next to me. So for 11 hours I'm trapped by this guy's huge bulk and it was difficult to move my legs around any; very unpleasant. And I paid $45 to get that window seat instead of my original seat that had been randomly assigned!! I wish that airlines provided a couple seats for tall people, because our height is a kind of disability given the cramped seating (which average height people complain about)."
Pros: "good movies, lots to choose from."
Cons: "paid extra for exit row seating for my husband and me. His seat did not recline so he had to move to an ordinary cramped seat. It was a bit of a rip-off."

Cons: "Reduced leg room"
