Pros: "We arrived at the airport early because we had to check out of our Hotel at 11 AM with luggage and no car, so we headed to the airport knowing there would be a 5 hours delay. Okay, we will have lunch, read a bit and we will get through this 5 hours.Then 2 hours later, we learned the flight was delayed another 3.5 hours. So almost 9 hours later, we finally flew out. $70.00 in meals plus checking our luggage for $25.00 each suitcase added up. Others were offered free checking of luggage due to limited overhead storage. Only learned of a free "snack pack" to give us some food after other passengers told us of it. It was not advertised. The plane ride was nice with a free drink and potato chip plus a free movie. We noticed that our plane was not full. We were told our plane was sent to New Mexico (State) were a plane was canceled. So, I ask why is our plane being canceled to assist another plane in New Mexico at our expense? Why were they not impacted and we were?"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport early because we had to check out of our Hotel at 11 AM with luggage and no car, so we headed to the airport knowing there would be a 5 hours delay. Okay we will have lunch, read a bit and we will get through this 5 hours.Then 2 hours later, we learned the flight was delayed nearly another 4 hours. So almost 9 hours later, we finally flew out. $70.00 in meals plus checking our luggage for $25.00 each suitcase added up. Later others were offered free checking of luggage due to limited overhead storage. Only learned of a free "snack pack" to give us some food after other passengers told us of it. It was not advertised. After backing out, the plane returned due to a passenger getting onto the wrong flight. There was a guy who was supposed to be on another flight or something. How can this happen? Again another 25 minute delay. The plane ride was nice with a free drink and potato chips plus a free TV/movies. We noticed that our plane was not full. We were told our original plane was sent to New Mexico (State) were a plane was canceled. So, I ask why is our plane being canceled to assist another plane in New Mexico State at our expense? Why were they not impacted and we were? A couple was flying to Seattle to "Be with their dying son" and there was an urgency. They too had to wait nearly 4 hours more. Was the flight from New Mexico was on time? SHAME SHAME SHAME."

We boarded the plane at 1020, had to wait an extra 20 minutes for the flight tower to get our plan to the plane so we could go. I didn’t get home til 2am and had to work at 7. Not happy at all with flight delays."

There was a chilld who sat behind me that kick my chair the entire time and stuck his hands in between which where sticky in between the seat over and over again grabbing me he was loud and sick with what seem to be a cold and kept touching me though the seat would not listen to the adult that was with him i understand that he is a child but this went on the entire flight which was over five hours my back is still not ok .. snacks where serve late into the filght once.. staff was not friendly..."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice. The price (economy nonstop RT to Boston from Seattle) was excellent."
Cons: "JetBlue economy seats were uncomfortable or me on a long (almost six hour) flight. I had to get up and stand in back twice, as my rear end was so sore. Both flights were delayed 45 minutes to an hour. As this is my first time flying JetBlue, it didn't leave good impression."

Pros: "It was very roomy and the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The staff was very friendly and the movies were enjoyable"

Pros: "Had a reasonably comfortable seat. Entertainment and information screen is very nice. Crew was very pleasant.

Cons: "No meal offered, and just a single small snack at the beginning of the flight so arrived ravenous, Controls for the TV on the armrest where my neighbor’s elbow kept changing the settings — the controls should be moved to a less vulnerable location."

Pros: "Excellent, friendly service. Amazingly designed aircraft. A first class experience!"

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!

I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"

Pros: "Great gate waiting area. Excellent steward staff. Coach seats and entertainment was stellar!"

Pros: "Liked the staff, speedy boarding, in flight service."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "average trip: boarding, timeliness, uneventful (what you wish for on a flight)"
Cons: "-Entertainment system wasn't working, so made for a long 6 hours. -Flight crew weren't self-aware - had conversations with each other in loud voices at the back of the plane that could be heard by passengers several rows away. Many people were trying to sleep with no entertainment system working."

Pros: "The staff was amazing -- very friendly and made their customers feel welcomed and comfortable. Quentin was especially great. He helped me put my luggage in the overhead bins, and continuously made everyone laugh. Also he complimented my eyes and that was cool considering I was very tired and feeling pretty antisocial. Thank you for turning my morning around!"

Pros: "Leg room was good."

Pros: "Just average."

Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."

Pros: "Attentive CREW and proactive."

Pros: "Good selection of movies, friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats did not breath at all and caused me to sweat. Placement of movie controls on armrest was very poor and caused me to continually stop the movie accidentally. Flight attendant did not inform me of the cost of beverages (or that they even had a cost) until after I had asked for two."

Pros: "Customer service and seat space."
Cons: "Food could have been better"

Pros: "Buenos protocolos COVID"
Cons: "En la reservación de kayak no aparece el código de reserva de vuelo de cada aerolínea. Para encontrarlo hay que buscar en la página help.kayak. Al no tener ese código disponible a la mano lo se puede hacer check in. Estuve llamando al Contacto Center de Avianca y el servicio fue muy deficiente."

Pros: "Colaboración del personal"
Cons: "Atrasos"

Pros: "Excelente atención todos fueron muy amables y atentos."

Cons: "There was no tea as an option for those who don't drink coffee, and the individual juice boxes are unnecessary, it creates more trash and straws."

Pros: "Voucher for lunch"
Cons: "No accommodation to change flights. No honest updates."

Pros: "Christian the flight attendant was amazing!"

Pros: "What is nice is that this airline gives people a pillow if they need one. They include a meal with a two hour flight from Costa Rica to Bogota, all included in the price. The reality is that in 2017 the airline carriers in the US are the worst in the world for their flying customers. The flight from Bogota to Montevideo was good. the seats could be another 2-4" wider. Other than that, for an economy flight, this was a very nice flight."

Pros: "See abovw"

Pros: "Very smooth day at the airport and in travel. Thank you Avianca"

Cons: "Cobros que no se debieron hacer.....depende del supervisor del momento y así hacen los cobros....viaje de El Salvador a Costa Rica y todo bien......de Regreso.......Cobros adicionales y con la misma cantidad de maletas....cual es la razón???depende de como tiene el estado de ánimo del supervisor???MUY MALO"

Pros: "Speed and punctual"

Pros: "- boarding the plane was efficient and well organised - airline staff were friendly - when my flight was canceled I was sent to a hotel and didn't have to wait around in the airport - comfortable with plenty of room, pillows and blankets"
Cons: "- My first of two flights was canceled which was poorly communicated after waiting in a queue for two hours. I am still even now unsure as to why the flight was canceled as no one bothered to inform us as to what the reason was. - On my new connecting flight from San Salvador to Bogotá there was only two meal options (both meat) which I do not eat and was told to just take the meat out of the meal as there was no other options. Would have been helpful to have known before the flight so I could have bought my own food to take on the plane. - The charging points on the back of the seat were inactive"

Pros: "Flight crew was lovely, I was surprised to learn we received lunch on such a short flight, and make sure you get to the terminal early as the shuttle you to the plane. I would definitely fly Avianca again!"

Pros: "Very nice staff. Free meals, which is rare nowadays."
Cons: "No wifi. No personal entertainment on international flight from San Salvador to JFK"

Cons: "massive delay in the counter"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "To wait"

Pros: "Entertainment options"

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: "Viajo mucho y Avianca es mi aerolinea preferida, las asistentes de vuelo mientras no sean de Costa Rica, son muy amables, las costarricenses son muy pedantes y groceras y las Colombianas las mejores, lindas, amables, pacientes."

Pros: "If Avianca was everywhere we would fly them every time!!!! We had some delay issues and they were so kind and accommodating!!!"

Pros: "We liked the duration of the flight. The people were great and the food was nice with several drinks."
Cons: "We liked everything."

Cons: "Having waited in San Jose for two hours, I was hoping that maybe my experience on the last flight from Guatemala was an aberration. It was NOT! Again the food was disgusting and there was no form of entertainment available. Someone gave me their extra "snack" as we were disembarking but I left it on the plane. I am not one who usually tosses food aside; however, the food they gave us was revolting."

Pros: "Friendly staff, nice snack, free checked baggage."

Pros: "My best experience so far"

Cons: "More snack options"

Pros: "Delta is great and made everything easy and comfortable. Loved having the middle seat open. Flight attendants did a wonderful job! This is a great nonstop flight!"

Pros: "Crew very friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Would’ve been nicer to have lunch rather than breakfast"

Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "It was a good expiriance traveling with delta!"

Pros: "Older plane."
Cons: "Our section, Main 1 (towards tail end of plane) had strong smell of unine which thankfully dissipated once plane was in flight. Also, bathrooms even on boarding were not clean with urine all over the toilet."

Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."

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: "That there were TVs on the seats to watch and it was quick boarding"

Pros: "Early departure"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"

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: "Upgraded to comfort, I’ve never sat in a better seat. The crew was all very polite, informative and friendly. Quick and easy flight. Thank you!!"

Pros: "Not very crowded"

Cons: "No complaints...too short of a trip to complain about anything!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No food or drinks"

Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."

Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was anything I didn’t like about the flight, everything was great!"

Pros: "Landed Early at LAX"
Cons: "Having to go through 1 terminal to get bussed to another terminal & gate was at the opposite end. Having to ask the person next to me not to eat nuts Bc I was allergic. I disclosed this on my registration for my flight."

Cons: "On time, free upgrade."

Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Before was better no now"

Pros: "Having just exited the AeroMexico flight that came across as unprofessional, it was refreshing to get on a Delta flight. It was not really exceptional, but it met my expectations. The Delta agent on the telephone on the day before our flight WAS exceptional, as she tried valiantly to get us checked in to a flight that had been changed (by Aeromexico) several times. Delta was also exceptional in helping us retrieve our luggage after AeroMexico lost it."
Cons: "The noise by the engines in the back section on the Delta flight was rather unbelievable. As a physician, I think it was likely physically damaging to our hearing. If this interior aircraft noise can’t be avoided, I think earplugs should be offered to passengers in those seats."

Pros: "loved the airbus and in flight movies good stufg"

Pros: "Flight was faster than expected, comfy seats, check in was fast and easy."

Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"

Pros: "Above feedback is for the MSP to GEG flight"

Cons: "We were delayed due to the air conditioning not working. So, it was a tad warm in the cabin. It would've been nice to have someone coming around with water making our delay a little more comfortable."

Pros: "everything except in flight internet."
Cons: "Gogoinflight hasnt woked as it said it would on any flight on any airline for a year."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"

Pros: "On Time"

Pros: "On time"

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: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"

Cons: "Never again!"

Pros: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."

Cons: "See above."

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: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"

Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."

Pros: "Got delayed due to the computer shutdown"

Cons: "My seating. Location. We checked in 22 hrs before the flight and received C4 c5"

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: "Both of my flights were on time which i know sounds basic but all of the flights i’ve catched from SJO to X were late and this time my connection in Panama was only 1h15 and we got there earlier, so that was nice!"
Cons: "A bunch of seats were free and we were mostly sat all together (3 person next to each other).. With the covid situation i think it could be good to be more separate if possible"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Schedule, we got late at Panama AirPort"

Cons: "the connecting flight was missed due to the 30 minute lay over, plane was late landing and we were stuck in the back of the plane. Once we found the service desk the woman was really rude and uncaring and then charged us $300 to rebook us on a flight leaving 5 hours later. They lost my luggage."

Pros: "Amazing"

Pros: "El tiempo fue rapido"
Cons: "La comodidad del avion. Son muy estrechos."

Pros: "As per usual, the flight was on time."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The captain seemed like a very considerate and professional woman! Props to her for giving us more info than captains usually do"

Cons: "Nada.... everything went perfectly well!"

Cons: "Landing"

Pros: "The call center was not accured The fligh atendent did'nt pay any attention"

Cons: "Everything was ok"

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

Pros: "Good airline. Try to use then often. ."

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: "Free lugagge under plane food and alcohol!!"
Cons: "Long connection"

Pros: "My flight was delayed, causing a lot of stress at the terminal because many people had connecting flights. The Copa staff could not have been more helpful. Copa even put me up for the night at a Sheraton in Panama City when I missed my connection, provided free transportation to and from the airport, and gave me a free dinner voucher. All in all, a well handled experience in the face of disaster."
Cons: "Getting home a day late wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't Copa's fault."

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

Cons: "Boarding was too slow"

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."

Pros: "I always prefer flying copa in general as they are normally much better customer service, bud idea Doing webcheckin the counte agents really screwed up and needed to learn to do better job next time!!!'"
Cons: "Bad idea Doing webcheckin the counte agents really screwed up and needed to learn to do better job next time!!!'"

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

Cons: "Everything"

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: "Staff."
Cons: "Less baggage weigh allowed than normal. Cost an extra $100. Plane left late with no explanation."

Cons: "Timing"

Pros: "Liked it very much"

Pros: "I give Copa Air a big fat zero on price. I missed my connection flight because my first flight was delayed and there was no more flights that night so they said come back tommorow. 8 went back the next day and all flights were canceled because of a hurricane but copa refused to let me on the return flight home i had already laod for!!! Horrible rip off"
Cons: "Copa should of let me on my return scheduled flight i had already paid for without charging me again"

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

Pros: "Everything!We received meals and complimentary drinks and had lots of leg room!"

Cons: "Leaving vegas to Panama they checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" .. Arriving in Panama we flew to costa Rica again checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" ... Now almost 11 hours later we arrive in Costa Rica and because my passport was ripped they wouldn't let me in the country and sent me back. Why your airlines couldn't have told me this before I got all the way to Costa Rica and passed two check points I don't know. So you guys said you would send us to Puerto Rico but I would have to by my own plane ticket home... Very disappointed in your airline. And to top it off my boyfriend and I had very expensive osprey packs we were traveling with .. We used a copa plastic bag to wrap them up in Vegas so the strings would not get caught .. When we received our packs in Puerto Rico YOUR employees had taken the bags off and cut my boyfriends 300 dollar bag! I will never fly again with your airline."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not really confort."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "There was only 1 choice of beef sandwich no alternative"
