Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Fort Lauderdale connection is very bad with immigration with all the flights coming in Chicago should be a destination for direct flights to Columbia least they can take care of the crowd fast enough"
"Seats in row 2 very uncomfortable for sleeping!"
"Crew was arrogant and obnoxious. Wouldn’t help me pick up trash and another poured coffee on me twice, with one pathetic “sorry”. Flight attendants had so much baggage that passengers couldn’t find space in the overhead compartments causing a significant delay in our departure. In bound aircraft was late arriving from Haiti exasperating the situation. Based on this trip I would not recommend jet blue to anyone"
"plane was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours."
Cons: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours. We were told to arrive at the airport for our flight which was delayed incase our flight left on time. our gate changed five different times. Our flight was supposed to leave from Puerto Rico to Ft. Lauderdale @ 1:30 p.m. the flight kept getting delayed . our flight did not take off until 7:30 that evening. Nobody informed us of anything what the delay was etc. it was handled horribly by Jet Blue staff. We were t offered vouchers nothing."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight by about 15 minutes, strange that we get delayed for about an hour but the connecting flight can’t wait a few minutes. Currently en route to another airport to spend the night at the airport and then take an early morning flight to my home city. Would have been nice to get a hotel room. I also had trouble with being charged for a second checked bag when I only had a single checked bag, would be great if the customer service help desk could help with that at the airport."
Pros: "Wayne at the DCA Airport was gracious and amazing."
Cons: "The planes still aren’t clean. Pretty sure something was growing on the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Extremely disappointed about flight 1379 scheduled to depart at 0658, 18 Jun 21. Flight departure was moved to 10:30 AM and later to 12:30 PM without giving any reason for the delay to the hundreds of passengers that arrived at the airport between 4:30 AM to 5:30 AM to meet the airlines requirements. Poor performance by Jet blue. Lost of time and money for me. Thumps down. Blue is my favorite color, live up to it."
Cons: "Flight attendant sucks. They not courteous and the left me without a plane ticket to my connection flight"
Pros: "Yes everything was great"
Cons: "Very good airline. Worry free"
Cons: "Baggage took an hour"
Cons: "Nothing really. JetBlue is top notch in my book."
Pros: "Free wi fi internet"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3hrs"
Pros: "Speed and and comfort"
Cons: "More food on the plan"
Cons: "Too many people on one flight for a while pandemic to be happening Smh"
Cons: "Having less passengers onboard would have been a good option for avoiding CV19."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized, there was some chaos regarding who was sitting in which seat which delayed the pushback process. Another issue is that compared to other airlines baggage took forever to arrive at destination."
Pros: "Paid seat was comfortable, entertainment was great"
Cons: "The elder gentleman was very rude throughout the flight. Paid for front row seat mostly due to covid and he made us seat and wait for people that had a connection flight to exit the plane all the way from the end of the aircraft defeating the purpose of me buying the front row seat at $65 which was more than the seat was worth. The way the crew asked was was very rude because he stated if we stand up he would keep the door closed. I understand about the passengers with connection flight but its Jetblue responsibility to get these people to their connection but it shouldn’t jeopardize me."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Moving seats to a less crowded seat."
Cons: "There was no empty middle seat and a pretty full flight. Only 2-3 movie options. Old plane with small screen."
Pros: "Free wifi"
Pros: "given the current situation here and around the world, the crew is doing their best which is very good."
Cons: "sanitizer at the waiting area before boarding, maintain the social distancing when board and existing, insist that it must be followed, disembark row after row"
Cons: "A working entertainment system. Old and no operative!"
Pros: "An excellent crew makes the flight so much comfy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Nice crew, better planes than Spirit Airlines!!"
Cons: "Multiple delays & gate changes! Arrived 2 hours later than expected- not good for my ride home who had to wait so long!!"
Pros: "Seat super comfortable for the price"
Cons: "Delayed, delayed, delayed and no entertainment on the plane"
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: "excellent free snacks and nice water!"
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."
Pros: "Captain ended up being a good pilot with a very smooth landing,"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the crew was comprised of members from flights delayed by the snowstorm. Even though gate attendants knew they were on their way, attendants refused to let us board until the crew was all on board. Then we had to wait some more....... Also they were lax on pre-boarding announcements, not letting families with children on first. And waiting until each group was fully boarded before announcing the next. Plus the enunciation of various announcements was difficult to understand and/or way too fast. It wasn't funny."
Pros: "The plane that the rerouted to replace the original plane was very comfortable. The email updates where better then the information at the gate. Normally, I enjoy flying JetBlue however, this weekend's round trip was disappointing. My 1st flight was delayed about 5 hours and the return flight was delayed as well."
Cons: "The long delay and limited snacks. (After that long delay) The incident on the plane- the passengers had to take action and not the flight attends when a passenger threaten by another passenger. A good Samaritan came to the woman's aid and ensure she was safe by switching her seat. Prior to this, another passenger had to use her call button to try to notify the flight attends because the woman was unable to. (That was her second attempt to notify the attendants). I am unclear to why her first attempt to change seats was not taken under consideration by the flight attended. The alleged passenger was clearly intoxicated and had fallen on the women. The flight attends did intervened after the flight landed at FLL. The woman was detained on the plane along with the alleged passenger. Once again, I am not sure if that was wise. The woman could have been taken off the plane safely and quested at the gate at a safe distance. The alleged passenger was too intoxicated to comply with the flight attends requests to disembark the plan. I would have liked for the JetBlue flight attends to be more proactive or at the very least to keep an eye on the situation to ensure it did not escalate. This all could have been avoided if the woman's 1st request to change her seat to one of the many available seats was granted. Better ye,t for this alleged passenger to have never been able to board the plane in his condition. It was physically noticeable and the surrounding passengers stated they could smell the alcohol on him. Disappointed!"
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Pros: "The stewardess were so nice and there were no delayes. And we can bring two bags on the plane for free."
Cons: "They need to put more information for the gates so it is easier to check bags and there isn't a huge line. There also weren't very many workers to help people checking in their bags. more signs would help."
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly staff, nice choice of snacks and beverages. The JetBlue app is very useful."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment never worked. All I had available to look at was the JetBlue commercial channel showing me all of the entertainment I wasn’t able to watch. Not even the live view map worked. One of the attendants said something about resetting the system but I didn’t notice a change. I said something to one of the attendants a little later and she tried doing a reset again, but still no success. I could see other screens working fine and people were watching various programs while I just stared at a static map of the continental United States. Oh well, at least I was able to stream Netflix because of the free inflight WiFi."
Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"
Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"
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!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, and the TV's were working on the flight (did not on the flight from FLL/EWR)."
Cons: "Booked this flight to get a ride home, and in time for dinner with family. Flight was delayed 50 min. because of a delay in the arrival of the plane (not weather). During boarding process they were allowing people to get up and move around before takeoff, delaying over another 10min. When we finally arrived at 9:10 to the gate, another plane was at the gate and we did not get into the gate until 9:25. Thus, by the time the flight arrived I needed to get other transportation, cost me $25 and additional 30min. waiting for ride. This resulted in getting me home almost 2 hours late. Additional feedback: I book an aisle seat because I like being able to lift the arm on the outside, not available on this flight. I don't recall the plug for the headphones being down so far in the arm rest, thus struggled to find the plug."
Cons: "The boarding was a shitshow because nothing was done to prevent people from taking all of the overhead compartment room, so by the time my group boarded, there was no room. But, people were still trying and so that backed the line way up from 1/2 way into the plane all the way out the plane and IN SPITE OF MY REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET THE FLIGHT CREW TO ASSIST AND CLEAN UP THIS PILE OF HUMANITY, THEY DID NOTHING!!! They forced me to gate checked my carry on bag (no checked bag) and did not tell me I would not get it back AT the plane and had to go out through security to get it at the baggage claim and come back in through security and because of that incompetence I MISSED MY CONNECTION AND WAS STRANDED IN FLL OVERNIGHT. After the front desk continuously trying to explain to me how it was my fault some how, I HAD TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE TICKET ON A DIFFERENT AIRLINE OUT OF MIA AT 5AM TO MAKE THE WEDDING!!!! This is beyond unacceptable and as someone that travels for work and stays roughly 100 nights a year in hotels, I WILL NEVER ALLOW YOUR COMPANY TO BE ABLE TO PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."
Pros: "Every single employee I interacted with was awesome."
Cons: "Over 5 hours in delay due to a maintenance issue. Problem wasn't discovered overnight when it was parked. Wasn't discovered until the next day. Had to wait for the delivery of a specific part and install it. I'm all for planes not breaking upon reentry, but the fact that the two flights were both subsequently delayed 4-5 hours each instead of bringing in a sub plane was inconsiderate. Now I've got a long drive home and I'll only get an hour of sleep before a 14-hour work day. So thanks for that, JetBlue"
Cons: "Boarding time and crew was slowest ever?!!!"
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Pros: "Everything, trip was great"
Pros: "I like the fact that Jetblue handled the on boarding ot the passengers fast and efficiently starting with preferred riders, then going from the rear of the plane and moving forward. They also realized the plane was full so offered customers the free option of checking a bag in cargo. I would have preferred if they advised customers before checking through security of this option as I would have taken it rather than discard with some bottled products. The entertainment video was great on board, they offered free beverages and snacks. The crew moved through the aisle fast and efficiently when dispersing the food, and again when collect the refuse. While we had a little turbulence, the flight was uneventful and the pilot handled the landing very well. Departing the plane was also fast and efficient, although takes time because the plane was full. Overall, I was impressed with JetBlue, and their flight team."
Cons: "I thought that although comfortable, the chairs and fabric were obviously well worn and definitely needed upgrading. I also noticed that the chair head area didn't have a removable sanitary cover, which I thought should be there considering the number and frequency of change overs per seat on these flights. This is necessary to promote sanitary and comfortable conditions."
Pros: "The cabin was clean and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Better snacks. Chips or mini cheese platter"
Cons: "Excellent experience during covid times."
Cons: "Boarding crew not very friendly"
Pros: "Very nice people and helpful. Good attitude"
Cons: "Board was a bit disorganized and took much longer than I am used to even on full planes"
Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Departure times"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Cons: "Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were super comfortable, entertainment was great, lots of movies to choose from. Also they handed out a lot of great snacks"
Cons: "The delay was totally unexpected and frustrating particularly when no bad weather around!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Cons: "Had to collect & re check luggage between flights. Couldn't they have been transferred to the next aircraft?"
Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I understand when weather is rough not moving the beverage carts but a small bottle of water would be appreciated."
Pros: "We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!"
Pros: "Being in First Class"
Cons: "Heavier food selection would be appreciated."
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "Like the airplane - Boeing 757. More comfortable than the 737."
Cons: "Don't like the towel dispenser location and function. Can't find it when standing and a bunch of them come out at one time."
Pros: "The welcoming and kindness of flight attendants and staff"
Cons: "That headsets are not free and the leg space seemed tighter than usual"
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"
Pros: "I always enjoy my flights on Delta the staff members are always pleasant and helpful, not to mention a smooth flight. :)"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!"
Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "The constant delays. And nothing was done about it. Not even we're sorry. Here's a voucher. Or here's something on us due to the circumstances."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety. I don't think it's fair to take away this option to those that get the "cheap, standard" tickets."
Cons: "They were rude and notnhelpful lost my luggage"
Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
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."
"I checked in using the app flying from IAD to CR and connecting in Panama. I was over 2 hours early for my flight. Upon boarding they didn’t let me board because I needed a paper ticket and a QR code nobody told me about. Your employee decided to just take me out of the flight instead of fixing the issue. She put me on a red flight. That alleged QR code Could have been completed on the plane since I am fully vaccinated. Horrible experience throughout. Your employees are on our parent and rude"
"Friendly crew on plane. Food and beverage service was appreciated. Copa staff at check-in was uninformed or new. He was requesting a document aside from the required negative covid test results to enter the US. On the first leg, a shorter flight, there was a screen on the back of each seat for easy viewing. On the next leg, which was the longer flight, there were only occasional drop down screens that were more difficult to view dependent upon where you were seated."
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: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Cons: "Easy and fast acces to aircraft."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Different movie, more leg room but I'm tall so that is with any plane."
Cons: "Time or order to boarding , entertainment"
Pros: "The crew and ground customer service are great! Overall we were very pleased with COPA and would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "I enjoyed myself smooth ride and momondo made it easy"
Cons: "Spirit customer service was horrible. I'm glad I returned with copa. They will be my first choice from now on."
Cons: "Scan machine at gate. Needed two not one. Never got to eat. Waited in line 30 mins"
Pros: "Older aircraft but, comfy. Meals actually offered and alcoholic drinks offered without fees. Did have an inflight movie."
Cons: "Crew was a little bland. Few smiles, seemed put out by requests. No WiFi offered."
Pros: "Amazin !! Thank you"
Pros: "The crew was great and the food selection very good as well"
Cons: "Late to leave gate/ cramped"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Went above and beyond"
Cons: "On schedule more leg room"
Pros: "Not a single thing. Flight was cancelled and we are being held captive in Costa Rica. We have been given multiple excuses why. Overbooked, weather and the 737 max issue. We just want to go home. Please help us. We have been trying to check in for our new flight with a 20 hour itinerary for 30 minute"
Pros: "Crew and service was great."
Pros: "The crew treated me with disrespect, I ordered flight ticket with 2 bags deposit and 1 bag with me to the plane. one of my bags is a surfing board and it wasn’t written any where that it’s not like a regular bag. They charged me 150$ more for one way and they will charge me 150$ more on the way back"
Cons: "I paid on bringing my surf board like a flight ticket for a person with 2 bags! It’s unbelievable and unfair to put me in this situation! I hope that you will do something about that so I won’t need to pay again on150$ for my surfboard."
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: "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: "Great comfortable flight. Decent sized seat."
Pros: "Para poder abordar .........muchas Gracias"
Pros: "No esperaba mucho y menos de un viaje tan corto... En general los vuelos de copa no son muy buenos pero cumplen con el traslado"
Cons: "Confort la comida .... Aunque se salva la persona q me hizo el checkin en el counter a el si le doy 110 puntos eccelentecactitud fue un joven moreno"
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: "Crew was outstanding! Pleasant, helpful, and professional, smiling even when dealing with difficult passengers."
Cons: "The sound with the headset faded in and out and was scratchy sometimes. I gave up."
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: "The staff was nice and I liked that it had a TV screen for each chair with entertainment."
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat which stayed it had extra leg room. It seemed to be the same as every other seat. The only benefit is you get to board sooner and get off the plane sooner. As far as extra room I should have booked an emergency door seat."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The flight crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable, and the flight was quick"
Pros: "People are very friendly"
Cons: "The food is not very good at all, especially for breakfast and snacks. Also, the seats and entertainment are on the older side, therefore not very comfortable (but not uncomfortable) and not easy to watch/enjoy."
Pros: "The crew was super polite!"
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."
Pros: "You pay for a ticket. If they get you to your destination safely and close to on time, they did their job. Once, half the fun was getting there; now all the fun is after you arrive."
Cons: "When we were landing the light cover on the light fell on my head during the process!!!!!"
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: "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"
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "star alliance member. worst seats. somehow you let two parents and two children have two seats. screaming, crying, smelly. add to the fact we were on the tarmac for an hour before take-off. i dont usually write reviews because they are good overall but this was horrible all around"
Pros: "Free meal and drinks (including alcohol!) Great service Clean plane Free headphones and movie"
Cons: "If I had to say something negative, I'd say that the crew members have a heavy accent when speaking English. It didn't bother me personally, but some people may not like it."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
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: "FLL's airport is much less congested"
Cons: "Only two Baggage return conveyor belts in FLL the monitors are not accurate as to which of the belts the flights will be unloaded."
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: "Airplane clean, staff was friendly, couteous and mostly bilingual. Food and drinks were appreciated and of good quality. We were allowed to check 3 bags without addt'l charges. Definitely felt welcomed and would fly Copa again."
Cons: "Long wait at airport check in so glad we arrived almost 3 hrs before our flight. Staff was pleasant but for some reason desk agent told us that the flight was completely sold out and without telling us, put my wife and I in middle seats in different rows. We were at airport very early and didn't realize until boarding what she had done. In flight staff assisted on the flight and moved us to an exit row where we were able to sit together. Luckily I counted at least 6 open seats and in the end we were happy. I'm not sure why she did what she did. Ironically, she (gate agent) was incredibly nice. Maybe it was simply and honest mistake."
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: "They paid for our food and hotel."

Pros: "Seats were good, leg room ok"
Cons: "Check in desk wasn’t labeled with Sun Country. It said Canada Air. Nothing posted about needing to get a departure tax prepaid."
Pros: "Well we made it to our destination and it was on time."
Cons: "There was no kiosk, no one working until 6:30 pm, the employees were rude, tossed our bags carelessly, condescending, nonexistent email communication when trying to precheck and make sure we were set up, the girl making announcements kept messing up and getting mad at herself and stopping her announcement so it was hard to keep track of who was boarding. The seats were incredibly tight - OH and it was ridiculous that after purchasing tickets they then hit you with additional fees - like you have to PAY to pick a seat?! And then if you want to bring a carry on it costs the same as a checked bag?! Nickle and diming at its finest. All of the passengers we talked to from our flight all said the same thing. We will never fly Sun Country again."
Pros: "Crew was terrific! Nice folks. Courteous and professional"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat and ended up next to a bulkhead with no window. I can get claustrophobic so concerning and Frustrating! Also, unlike the trip to Minneapolis where the Wi-Fi worked great the Wi-Fi was awful on the return trip and made watching a movie challenging."
Pros: "Head cushion on seat"
Cons: "Customer service needs to be worked on. From ticketing to flight attendants. Poor service"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, and the boarding was VERY quick!"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "I didn’t realize I had to pay for a carry on"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "No snack provided on the 3 hr flight back, just drinks."
Cons: "Keep us updated on the 60 min delay to START boarding because the boards continues to say on time but we landed over 30 mins late and baggage took forever to get onto the belt."
Pros: "Entertainment options for a long flight. Room seats."
Cons: "Only one crew member ensured passengers had plenty of hydration. A couple crew spent time on their phones & casually chatting while the one was doing her job. No light snacks on a 5.5 hr flight? I thoroughly am disappointed with the extra charges Sun Country throws at passengers for carry ons?"
Pros: "Flight attendants worked the plane efficiently and were very attentive."
Cons: "Very rude ticket counter. They wouldn’t allow me to to board even though I showed up an hour, twenty minutes before take-off at their online POSTED terminal BUT they’ve moved (unfortunately no update on their web site). By the time I managed to get from terminal #2 to #5 (around LAX on a busy morning), a half hour later, the counter help wouldn’t even consider issuing me a boarding pass!"
Pros: "I wa upgraded to first class and was very pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "The food was not good."
Pros: "I liked the crew and the fact that I could reserve a seat. I also like that they use terminal A in the DEN airport and terminal 2 at MSP."

Pros: "Pleasant staff...late arrival made rental car unavailability difficult"
Cons: "...late arrival"
Cons: "We were fully boarded and then were delayed 1 hour without any explanation. They also had poor in flight service and very uncomfortable seats.

Cons: "This airline is impossible to contact both for reservation changes and their credit card service"

Cons: "turbulence was pretty bad on our flight both ways. Pilot on the way back began descent and all standard announcements were made by flight crew, several minutes later he finally announced he was landing. The price"
Pros: "Getting seats right behind First class = More leg room!"
Pros: "Fast and courteous service definitely makes a difference when traveling. I had no issues on my trip, looking forward to next trip."
Pros: "I liked the choices of complimentary drinks offered."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to beg and wait to get a full can of ginger ale it really helps my quizzes stomach when I fly. She made me wait till she got done with her drink run befor she gave me more than the small cup of it. It still wasn't a full can. I know they plenty to give. I asked very politely for a full can. Why do they do that????"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight. It was not a full flight. I had a row by myself and spent quiet time reading. The crew were friendly and rendered excellent service."

Pros: "Color of the seating, the green upholstery gave it a cheering pop of color Appreciate being able to have a can of pop, with a glass of ice"

Pros: "Non-Stop to Liberia, Costa Rica! No more Delta flights through Atlanta for me! It was a fast 5 1/12 hr flight into Costa Rica. Overall Excellent experience with Sun Country to Costa Rica. The boarding was easy-no hassle- They were on time. Crew was mostly great and respectful. I was in coach-so can't speak for first class, but overall a great experience."
Cons: "Of course - have to pay for luggage now. But I was able to do all that online prior to going to the airport. Was hungry on the flight- had to buy $5 breakfast sandwich that wouldn't break them to give out. Similar to a Holiday Gas Station sandwich. It got me through. Lion's Tap burgers for purchase on the way home -not bad- again microwave gas station burger for $5. Better than a $10 salad in the airport. Don't they get people feel ripped off when charged more in the airport for the same thing cheaper outside the airport?? It's not highway robbery-its runway robbery. But all the airports and airlines do this. Not Sun Country exclusively. But hey- Sun Country-you could do this different!! Be the leader!!"
"American airlines has always been great. Will definitely be using them in the future!"
"From the moment I walked into the airport in Chicago to the moment I was walking off the plane in Florida I had an unforgettable experience! I was traveling with my 3 month old by myself and everyone just made sure I was taken care of. I couldn’t thank them enough!"
Cons: "Two loud drunks talked loudly about inappropriate topics the entire flight while not wearing masks. Several people were not wearing masks and the crew never even tried to quiet them down or to tell anyone about the mask. I wondered if the crew agreed with what they were saying that’s why they allowed it. I say that because the one time a steward came to speak to them, it was in the most endearing way. The drunks were commenting that they were told there’d be alcohol and the steward said something like “It’ll be back soon. It’s just that things have been difficult. Have you been watching the news?” in the sweetest way. It felt like a wink."
Cons: "Not charging me 100 dollars For a luggage that was 56 pounds"

Pros: "I was able to finish a movie I started on a different flight and found an additional enjoyable movie to watch."

I explained her I had personal documents and stuff inside my trolley but she told me I had to take another fly if I refused to checked. Our surprise was that the space above our seats ( row 30) was available and left empty the while fly! It was not fear and discriminated!"
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Cons: "Sat on plane for over 3 hours waiting to take off. They didn't offer any drinks or snacks at all while we waited. They said if we get off we may not be able to get back on.

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."
Cons: "No food"
