Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Staff was courteous and helpful. Loved all smiling faces"
Cons: "Great people to fly with JetBlue"
Cons: "food options could improve, especially since the area around the gate doesn't have very nice food venues. More movie options could help as well, maybe allowing people to use their devices to watch movies. Maybe that is available already but it wasn't highlighted"
Pros: "Boarding was done efficiently."
Cons: "The crew barely spoke, wasn’t particularly friendly, didn’t make many announcements even while we circled JFK for 25+ mins waiting to land. Attendants didn’t come around much at all. Spent the whole flight with the guy next to me’s arm way past the armrest, pinned to the window; very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Several departure time changes, and one gate change, and a long hold before takeoff. Just bad luck."

Cons: "long delay uncomfortable seats unclear how seating was organized"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"
Pros: "Good legroom"
Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"
Pros: "On Time and smooth."

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: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tv didn’t work. Flight late due to refueling. ??"

Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."

Cons: "The tv never worked on row 35 efg. After the flight attendant refreshed the system 3 times, it still didn't work. Also, I heard the guy in front had auxillary issue too so he ended up playing games on his phone over finishing a movie he was watching. The flight attendant did offer to allow my friends and I switch seats to a seat where the tv worked (hence 3 stars, or else i would have rate a 1). We decided to stay at our seat and just enjoy the ride."

Pros: "On time schedule"
Pros: "I liked the time of the flight, that's about all."

Pros: "The staff friendliness, professionalism, and the overall quality were impressive."
Cons: "Loved the overall experience. I’ve been in many other airlines and the level of professionalism on this flight surpasses the current popular airlines."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because our first flight was delayed. We arrived when our flight was scheduled to take off but instead of holding that flight for maybe 30 minutes so everyone with connections could make it, we had to spend the night in Bogota. At least we were provided with hotel and food vouchers but don’t see how that is cost effective or good service for the airline when holding the plane for less than an hour would have allowed dozens of people to make it back the day we were scheduled to."
Pros: "We bought the tickets before the pilots strike in Bogota and they were a good value. The prices after the strike skyrocketed."
Cons: "The flight left 2 hours late. They said it was a technical/maintenence issue, but was clearly a staffing issue. The crew that finally did show up did not appear happy to have been called In."

Cons: "didn't find any things I didn't like"

With the lost luggage, they ultimately delivered my bag to the hotel I was staying at. On my return flight I flew business class. They did a great job all around."
Cons: "I booked a direct flight from JFK (NYC) to Cartagena (Colombia) and a few days out from my flight I got a notification from AVIANCA that my itinerary had changed from a 5 hr trip to a 24hr trip with not one but two 8-hour layovers before reaching my destination the next day! I called the Airline and they set me up with a new flight, that was not direct, with a single layover. Once I got to my final destination, I came to find that my checked bag had been left at my previous layover."

I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."

The caretaker of the person didn’t care about the uterine in the seat that I brought to her attention.

This took place on this flight."

Cons: "My flight was fine and the time seemed to go by quickly."
Pros: "Stores in Panama"
Cons: "When you get into Panama in the airport they control people in a rude way. (specially when we were from Panama to the USA. They make questions and review the luggage not friendly."
Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."
Cons: "They do not have a way to order vegetarian food on their website so I did not eat on either flight, which was really frustrating."
Pros: "Smooth trip no delays of any kind. The airlines used a newer plane and each seat had its only tv for watching your own movie or play some games, that will always be a big plus for me. Also they provided snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Personal y abordaje"
Cons: "Asientos incómodos comida mala entretenimiento malo"
Pros: "After I missed my flight I was greatly helped by a transfer agent named, Ana Raquel. She did everything she could to help me as they arranged to get me on the next flight and as I waited and boarded. The other agent serving at that same desk also helped. I am sorry I did not get her name. No one could have been nicer than Ana was to me."
Cons: "When I arrived in Panama my boarding pass said the flight from Panama to Quito was leaving from Gate 20. I checked with the departure information and did not see Quito on the list. I made the mistake of not checking the time. And therefore waited and waited at gate 20 for the flight to Panama which by that time I had missed. And saw later that the gate had been changed at the last to Gate 24. I thought it would have been nice if Copa could have posted the change at Gate 20 . I would not have missed the flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and professional. I have always loved flying on Copa."
Pros: "Food and sandwiches are tasty."
Cons: "No movie!, uggg... The real problem though is 1) they changed the gate on a connecting flight. Copa seems to make gate changes on all flights without notifying passengers. If you don't watch the board you'll miss your flight. Why not send a crew member to the gate you told passengers to go to , and put a sign by that gate notifying passengers of the change! So stressful!!! 2) In transit passengers catching connecting flights, Copa to Copa, have to go through their security again! What, why?? We cannot eat, drink and relax at the gate because no fluids are allowed AT YOUR GATE. We are not talking ourtside security, you are already in the security areas. Even to go to the bathroom you have to go in and out of security, again! Stupid!! We didn't leave the terminal, and you're making us miserable!"
Pros: "I love that food was included in our ticket price!"
Cons: "No announcements when boarding. The speaker system was not used once"
Cons: "We flew from Quito to Cuenca, Ecuador and after circling the city several times the pilot announced we were going back to Quito in order to deal with an equipment issue. I appreciate the move from a safety standpoint, the passengers were given no information about WHY we were going back or how long it would take."
Pros: "Copa still serves meals at no extra charge. Good food too. Crew is consistently excellent for all flights."
Cons: "Seats are very small, little leg room, and some of the planes have seat cushions that are too firm."
Pros: "Todo estuvo perfecto !"
Pros: "Great food, great crew assistant"
Pros: "After snow delayed departure from Newark, we have made it as far as Panama City, Panama. Our bags, apparently, are in Quito, Equador! Such fun!"
Cons: "Overbooking, they also left my baggage and it´s lost until now!"
Pros: "At take off the plain a bird hit the wing. Crew gave feedback on what they knew. They remain calmed and try to share that feelings of everything will be alright."
Cons: "It took too long to get the flight changes. Staff was taking names of volunteers that wanted to stay, and for those who wanted to leave in the next flight. This could be more efficient by making groups--depending on the options. And try to keep more staff in the floor to help the passengers to direct them in the right option. We had only four people trying to do all."
Cons: "My baggage did not arrive in Quito until 2.5 days later. Apparently it did not leave Panama with my flight."
Cons: "Flight was totally full... At least everyone had a mask on American does not space seats like Delta does I will be taking Delta whenever possible"
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."

Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Being bumped to first class."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Check in Miami Stewards Miami Quito portion"
Cons: "Being 3 1/2 hours late from Quito to Miami Being delayed from Denver to Houston and switch to United to coach seats, they did give us coupons though, but after the fact . Luggage arriving late from Denver, customer service didn't have a clue were the luggage was. As we were leaving to come back next day the luggage, we saw it in a carrousel, and pick it up. Republic flight from New Orleans it's not worth it the business class, very poor service ."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
Pros: "The professionalism of the pilots in handling the extremely rough weather during the flight"
Cons: "The meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable . They are co - shared with Qantas and could learn a lot about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Cons: "Boarding, food"
Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Pros: "It was successful."
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"
