Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We are still on the plane. Can’t get off because there is lightning in the area. Ridiculous. It is raining lightly. I would really like to get off the plane"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Luggage handling"
Cons: "I have a problem with my ears, and asked the crew for nozzle drops, they don’t have"
Cons: "Flight over 3 hours late leaving. Flight attendants rude, and nothing comped for drinks or food to make up for it. Had to circle for 45 min due to weather. Sat on tarmac 30 mijn on other end."
Cons: "I paid extra to sit next to someone with poor hygiene and a 3 year old who cried hysterically the entire flight. Worst flight ever"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. Engine as no flight permission problems. My seat was hard."
Pros: "Having a tv"
Cons: "Sound jack not working properly , older plane no amenities"
Cons: "When I went to check in for my flight all sets had been picked only the upgraded sets were available for an extra cost. So with saying that I went to the airport with out a set number think my family and I would get bumped, even if the email said they never over book their flight,this was my first time flying jet blue I wasn't going to trust an email so the hole time I was worried about that when I should have been enjoying my last day on vacation."
Cons: "A lote of wait."
Pros: "The crew could not have been more helpful and pleasant making the delay bearable as they were overtly communicative w all via text, email, and in person keeping is updated! HIGHLT RECOMMEND and will definitely be flying again. :)"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. On time, all good things."
Cons: "An individual who was very overweight sat next to me and took up half of my seat as well. I understand we all deserv to ride comfortably and my intent is not to shame them. That said, if someone can’t put the armrest down I think the airline should require them to purchase both seats as it’s very uncomfortable to be in the position of having no seat for the entire ride. I’m an average sized person so it was a challenge but even tiny people deserve the full seat they purchased. There really should be a rule or something."
Pros: "Wide array of snacks and drinks, tv/movies to watch for free, excellent staff from beginning to end, and tons of legroom. The complimentary free check of my carryon way awesome."
Cons: "I liked everything! No complaints at all."
Cons: "Six hours late, then there wasn’t enough fuel and had to wait for paperwork multiple times. Hands down the worst experience I have ever had. I will not be flying JetBlue again."
Pros: "The airplane wasn’t turn on the right way and turn off more three time..... everyone was in panic. Also when the airplane arrived the door was stock really bad......"
Cons: "I going to call jetblue for follow those problems.......... I going to talk with all my friend about this bad expericience and recommend everyone dont travel with Jetblue anymore...contact me to my email Santanalore.firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."
Pros: "On time good service"
Cons: "I never got the opportunity to fly because I was stuck in unusual traffic in a tunnel for over an hour just minutes from the Boston airport. I was later told there was a fire. I called the 1-800-JETBLUE number and I explained that the situation. The agent said that there would be a $75 change fee and at 4:47 pm there were no more flights out that night and that I would also be charged the fare differential the following day. I quickly went on line and found a deep discounted fare on United for $56! When I got to the airport there were several other people with the same situation. Not a enough agents on staff and no concern that I might miss my new flight on United. Thank Gid I acted fast and got another flight that evening or I would have needed to spend the night in the airport like a woman and her mother traveling to San Jose! Need more professionalism !"
Cons: "I was delayed half a dozen times, only to be canceled. Rescheduled on a flight that was scheduled to depart two hours before the original flight. Rescheduled after an hour hold. That flight was delayed the following day. Was diverted to Baltimore only to find out only some of us on our flight are getting out by a rude agent. Then no information at all. Had to run to catch an amtrak. Later found out if I stayed I would have stayed another 13 hours in Baltimore. Missed work and had no one home to take care of my family. Oh, and travel insurance will not cover anything. The plane itself was falling apart. Seat was broken and dirty. Everyones lights were broken and it smelled."
Pros: "comfort of seats"
Cons: "Morons at Jet Blue took me in wheelchair to wrong gate and left me there, but for someone passing and asking me the flight I was on and learning the Gate had changed, which was not announced at Gate E2 I would probably have missed my flight."
Pros: "Good flight. The staff was nice, especially Chris. Nice to see complimentary beverages and snacks still offered on domestic flights."
Cons: "Seats are terrible, and getting worse every year, but thats coach on all airlines not just Jet Blue. Hard armrests, weirdly shaped bucket seats which are appalling in any other position than straight up with 90 degree waist bend. Thats not how humans sit for extended periods of time. A 5 degree recline is not a recline; its a joke. At least the tray table was bigger than my phablet, unlike Spirit where the napkins look like tablecloths on these ‘tables’. Overall, it is better than the cheapest airlines."
Pros: "The entire experience was great,, From check in to luggage pick up friendly helpful staff, comfortable seats, great snacks. I will only fly Jet Blue from now on if they have flights to my destination. No other airline comes close, simply the best!!!"
Cons: "Two hours later leaving JFK"
Cons: "Agent in Dominican rep counter not very professional"
Pros: "Everything was great!! Excellent job pilots"
Pros: "The crew and service on board was excelent and a very good flight."
Cons: "The manage of lugage not good and the boarding was a mess and they change gate sometimes in the last minutes and others."
Pros: "The flight itself went rather smoothly."
Cons: "The movies (in flight entertainment) were inaccessible for me and my neighbor and when anither friend across the aisle managed to play one, there were no captions. Also, our flight was delayed almost a hour for no clear reason."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The plane being 4 hours late and then arriving in Chicago only to find out we have to taxi for 30 minutes because there is no free gate for us. I’m really tired and should have been in bed 5 hours ago"
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly."
Cons: "The overhead fan was very strong."
Cons: "There was uncertainty about departure time. The departure time changed several times. Landed in Chicago 3 hours late at 3 AM."
Pros: "The crew and the actual plane ride are always great. Comfortable seats, friendly staff, and I am so grateful for the free wifi."
Cons: "Delays! Jet Blue seems to always have some type of issues with their planes which cause delays. I understand that things happen, but I'm not the only one who has been affected by these delays. I had to wait over four hours from my original departure time, it's ridiculous. The only positive is that Jet Blue does go out of their way to compensate us for our troubles, but I would be so much happier if my flight came and left at their appropriate time."
Pros: "When I got off the plane"
Cons: "it was late, the plane was dirty, the tv screens didn't work, and the seats were small."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The captain didn’t show up for the flight so we had to wait for a new one to get to the airport. Easily, this could have been avoided. Then we land an hour late and we sit on the runway for a long time with no information."
Cons: "This flight was very scary particularly mid air. Haven flown many times I knew this was different from usual turbulence cause my clouds or rough air. Jet blue should check"
Pros: "Love the snacks and TV option"
Cons: "Delayed for weather ok but then we arrived but didn't deplane for almost 1.5 hours!"
Pros: "The crew. The comfort."
Cons: "Almost 2 hours delay."
Cons: "The flight attendants were very rude and didn’t like their attitude"
Pros: "Was able to have one carry on plus a personal item."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the food selection was poor, as in a drink and a bag of chips. I just flew through Delta and it was a big difference in service. JetBlue used to have high standards and now I'm seeing more delayed flights, lengthy security screenings, higher airfares, and just overall poor customer service. The chairs don't have outlets to charge your devices, and controls are embedded on arm rests so its uncomfortable. I also tried connecting to the Wifi and it didn't work. Flying used to be fun, but now it's a drag, pun intended."
Pros: "The free wifi"
Cons: "The tv"
Pros: "Very good!"
Pros: "Solid crew, comfortable flight, free tv and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "A few factors led to a 6 hour delay. Not necessarily Jet Blue's fault but it was certainly a frustrating day of travel"
Pros: "The plane had 2 wings"
Cons: "Staff is rude. Customer Service couldn't possibly be worst. All their food has meat in it. Staff is slow and incompetent. Never had a more dreadful experience with an airline. TAP IS THE WORST AIRLINE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED, and I fly 2 times a month."
Pros: "The take off into the air was calm and not frightening."
Cons: "The flight we had scheduled with them was canceled and there was no email or form of communication sent to tell us before arriving to the airport. We found out while attempting to "check in." They were hesitant in providing food vouchers for us when our original flight that was supposed to leave early in the morning (6:30am), now left at (5:59pm)."
Cons: "Hour delay"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "JetBlue booked me on next flight out: AA flight only an hour and a half after the one I missed"
Cons: "Had to check my fragile instrument even though there was room in a closet."
Pros: "Pretty straight forward. Clean. Efficient."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost."
Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "It was all great"
Pros: "Pilots kept us abreast of timing and upcoming turbulence"
Cons: "The seat back screen was broken, but the screen itself was always on, so in addition to no entertainment, I couldn’t even have darkness"
Pros: "Pedro helped me in Punta Cana with a wheelchair he went out of his way to make sure I was okay and comfortable. He was amazing! I so grateful for him."
Cons: "The trip from Atlanta Georgia to Austin Texas was TERRIBLE!! The delta staff working the counter in Atlanta were rude, I was actually forced to get a complete stranger to help me with my wheelchair because there was no staff to help me. I was yelled at by delta staff. It was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "The plane was nice and the entertainment on the flight was great! Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."
Pros: "Crew were great, on time, helpful, friendly."
Pros: "The female crew were really nice to my 3 year old daughter and made her feel at ease on the flight. Hi"
Cons: "Boarding at the Punta Cana airport was disorganized. People just got on whatever line they wanted and no attention was paid to whether passengers were first in line vs last in line, priority seating vs general, traveling with kids vs no kids, etc."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Good airframe."
Cons: "3+ hours delayed; didn't arrive until 3AM."
Pros: "The crew really took care of us. You could tell they care."
Cons: "I wish the headphone jacks allowed standard headphones. I brought a nice set and didn't have an adapter. I used the ones they included which were ok, but not great."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"
Pros: "The flights departed and Arron time."
Cons: "The leg room was tight fir me as I am a six footer."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"
Cons: "Service in business class left a little more to be desired. I had to ask for food and drinks, because I feel off to sleep in the first round. Came to Gate early, but had to wait for agent to put the jet bridge. Only one person was available."
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was anything I didn’t like about the flight, everything was great!"
Pros: "Seats were very Comfortable"
Cons: "Rudeness of one of the crew members"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and courteous the plane was very comfortable!"
Cons: "I know things happen but it didn’t make a pleasant travel experience sitting on the plane for almost 2 hours and the fear of missing my connection to NO"
Pros: "Loved how there was food to purchase on this flight. Great from having to run from one flight to the next."
Cons: "This is the second flight in a row in which Delta has either cancelled or rescheduled my flight at the last minute. Last time I was stranded in the Atlanta airport overnight waiting literally all night for them to return my luggage (which never came, and then was late even to my final destination). I will not be using Delta in the future."
Cons: "I was good with the flight, my friend had some allergy problems with the ac."
Pros: "Easy transition from one gate to the next.."
Cons: "The food was not fut for human consumption and the servers did not care"
Pros: "the trip going to cancun was an absolute nitemare.... the phone situation was less than acceptable... call back times horrific incorrect postings of new schedules.... late postings of new schedules...."
Cons: "the trip going to cancun was an absolute nitemare.... the phone situation was less than acceptable... call back times horrific incorrect postings of new schedules.... late postings of new schedules...."
Pros: "From the gate agent to the in-flight crew and pilot, totally impressed and pleased with their attention to detail and care of the passengers."
Cons: "Nothing to asd"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "clean. friendly. decent snacks."
Cons: "warm cabin. small seats with no head support. not enough drink cart passes."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Efficient friendly staff"
Cons: "Kind of rough landing, but we are alive and well!"
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Cons: "Change d for WiFi. Cheap"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "I'll chalk it up to the insanely high travel demands coincident with Labor Day."
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "The time traveled to get to my destination! It would not be my choice if I was to fly again."
Cons: "The customer service. The flight attendants needs to take some more training on how to provide a better service to paying customers. The seemed a bit unfriendly!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly; the power of a smile is underestimated by many, not this crew. Wonderful smiles and service to match."
Cons: "As usual, a small space on a full flight. Pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "Flight cancelled at 8:30 p.m. the night before when we were going to bed at the airport. Ability to get rebooked a nightmare."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Pros: "Food in first class was quite good. Flight was smooth, and arrived early."
Cons: "The boarding agents lost control of the crowd form the get go. The first class cabin crew on our side of the plane was inattentive, though it appeared on the other half of the plane the crew was very attentive. This is one of the poorer first class seats in the industry. The "lie flat" seat is just that, a lie. It is pitched at an angle, though not as steep as some. Foot cubby is narrow and constrictive, bordering on claustrophobic."
Cons: "Told to drop down a class on arrival at gate."
Pros: "The ramp agents and crew were excellent and they were professional."
Cons: "Flying in first class and watching all the economy passengers dragging multiple carry ons to save a baggage fee"
Pros: "We flew Business Class from Atlanta to Punta Cana and loved the crew but weren't happy with the lunch portions or options; however, the return trip in Business Class the flight crew were good and the food selection and portions were what I would have expected for the upgrade. Thanks Delta! The pilot even got us in an hour early! Never had that happen before!! Kudos!!"
Cons: "The tray tables always seem to need a good scrub in all the cracks and edges."
Pros: "The crew in the business class was very attentive."
Cons: "I cant think of anything at the moment."
Cons: "They canceled the flight last minute and I had to spend the night and I missed work and a doctors appointment. I asked to be put on another flight and they told me to wait and when I asked again they said they couldn’t cuz the flight left. If they would have changed it in the first place then I woud"
Pros: "see previous comments"
Pros: "Nothing, rude and not caring for their customers. My flight from dtw to Chicago was canceled and I was never informed. I lost 1 day of my trip and a wedding. Worst airline."
Cons: "Notify flight cancellation, rebook the flight with another airline, and offer a compensation since we missed a wedding and that was the whole reason why we were going to Ecuador. Worst costumer service ever."
Pros: "the only plus was that the plane had TVs and blankets, and a meal. otherwise, not much"
Cons: "Everything... not a good experience overall. We were significatnly delayed for no reason. poor communication, rude staff and no wifi. seats very uncomfortable..."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Crew was great. A dinner meal and full beverage service is included ....remember when the Big airlines use to??"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise to have a security check at gate, especially when they took every ones water that was purchased in the secure area just outside of the gates!!! At least some signage about No Water bottles!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I enjoyed my flight"
Pros: "TV options, meals, check in"
Cons: "The bus shuttle in Panama and in Bogota."
Pros: "the meal was nice."
Cons: "that I was crammed into a seat. I was seated in the back row and the person in front of me leaned their seat all the way back and because of my height I was literally stuck. Flight attendants wold roll eyes if I didnt understand their spanish immediately or spoke english to them."
Pros: "The breakfast was good, warm, fruits were fresh."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the process was standard"
Cons: "For some reason both my friends and I felt it was a very uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Leg room, crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Again food"
Pros: "The stewardess was very unprofessional and being racist"
Pros: "It was non stop"
Cons: "The plane was freezing and when I asked the attendant for a blanket she said they were all out"
Pros: "Always is on time"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Plane too full. Again, without the individual screens, you didn't have a choice on what to watch on a very very long flight"
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."
Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was flawless. Pleasant staff & comfortable seats... LOVED the free movies, audio selection, food, beverages, etc."
Cons: "1. would not allow duty-free purchases with under 60 minute boarding time. 2. required TSA check & disposal of all beverages before entering the area to wait for the plane - a 30 minute wait in the hallway!"
Pros: "They gave me a upgrade!! What else did I want."
Pros: "Considering their is no water for purchase after security the airline should offer much more water during the flight. I was only offered a drink once during a 5+ hour flight. I had to ask for additional water later on."
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is trying to appear as a big, powerful company. I choose them because there was direct flight from Chicago to Panama City. Big mistake. Take any American or European Airline. Worst experience ever!"
Cons: "Flights not on time, always late, lying employees and crew. They show a flight to Boston signs on the flight to Chicago, no airconditioning working. Bunch of idiots and incopetent people playing airline with passagers lifes. Never use them, you will thank for this advise someday."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and food was good."
Cons: "Someone stole my hat from the airline counter and no one could help track down who. I kept getting the run around. Flights were delayed and there was a lot of chaos albeit it might not have been the fault of the airline."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Comfortable leg room Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Cons: "Nelson Jose zelaya durmió en una sill en ese aeropuerto porque no lo dejaron hacer conexión a punta cana que era su destino; porque nunca dijeron nada tanto el Consulado de Panamá como la aerolínea que cuando una persona ha sido deportará de US A no puede viajar; utilizaron el fly que estaba comprado para su devolución al país de origen; ustedes creen es justo?"
Pros: "Nothing. Everything was a bad costumer service."
Cons: "I missed my flight because in the town I live , there was a landslide and rocks fall on the road. And it was impossible to get out of the town and I didn't find any help for refunding or changing the dates of my flight. Really bad costumer service, I'm still waiting for a reply of the emails I sent to vayama. Imposible to comunicar with it by phone with them and with the kayak office in Colombia."
Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."
Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was variety for entertainment! There had great movies, new ones, not all airlines focus on that. Another thing was the food and drinks that the offered. They really kept passengers happy."
Cons: "Now they turn off the air conditioner. Terrible so hot. Dont bring any more a decent food"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Pros: "All of my grievances regard the Panama staff at the airport and on the plane, the staff and services at O'Hare were top notch. Customs was extremely fast and efficient and everyone was friendly and did their jobs well. As far as the Panama airlines go, the food was okay, nothing special but not disgusting, and not all the flight attendants were unpleasant."
Cons: "The worst thing that happened was mean spirited security guards at the airport did a security check before allowing us to get to our gate. They forced us to dispose of a bottle of water that we had bought at that very airport. We were then quarantined into a waiting area with no seating and no access to other water, bathroom or food. Then on the plan we were offered beverages twice, so I was only able to get about six swallows of water from Panama to Chicago. Dehydration makes a plane ride a lot less healthy and comfortable. The staff was mostly unpleasant, the seats were really small and uncomfortable (more so than any other airplanes I've been aboard), and for some reasons they kept turning the main lights on and off, allowing us to sleep and then waking us all up for no good reason. Unbelievable."
Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."
Pros: "The service by the crew in providing the food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "Being an international flight of 5+ hours long, they only transmitted 1 movie."
Pros: "Great and friendly"
Pros: "Don't you know this information already?"
Pros: "I liked being able to choose my own seat, and the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I'd rather have snacks than the weird beef and rice. As an aside, either the speaker in my arm didn't work or my headphones didn't work."
Pros: "Mostly the flight was great because there weren't that many folks on the flight so I got to stretch out. The check in process was quite a hassle. They made me check a bag that wasn't checked on my way to Panama but told me I had to. And even though the flight far from full they assigned us the row in front of the exit doors so our seats didn't go down. But in flight - all good."
Cons: "The Check in at Panama City not the best. In Miami, it was awesome. A little inconsistent."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was very nice."
Cons: "The staff at the Panama city airport while boarding were jerks. A couple of snobby women with attitude problems. Also there was basically no entertainment because it was impossible to see those little tv screens and even if yiu could see, you have to crane your neck. Also the lighting in this airplane was so horrid it was unbearable. Who chooses blue tinted lights? It's like flying in an industrial garage for 5 hours."
Pros: "landed safely. no f trump supporters yelling!"
Cons: "Need to add inseat entertainment for all flights."
Pros: "Meal was OK"
Cons: "Boarding announcement only in Spanish and without PA. Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."
Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."
Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Lots on in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing, I pretty much just slept the whole time."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Four and a half hours on board and just a cookie? Really!?"
Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"
Cons: "I got to Moscow, SVO. I didn't receive my bag. This sucks."
Pros: "The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words."
Cons: "As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight."
Pros: "the crew went out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible very nice"
Cons: "No wifi, no personal TVs"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The connection in Chicago was 3 HOURS late with several gate changes. People on the desk were rude and never explained what was wrong. They didn't even announce the gate. change. I got it from Kayak."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Pros: "The flight was a one way to PDX and felt fast and not exhausting coming from LHR. First time flying direct. Great food and snacks the staff took care of us. Bathrooms were cleaned over the trip which was great!"
Cons: "N/A - nothing..."
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Pros: "I loved the Movies that I could watch, Charger plug ins as well as the service. No extra hassel."
Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."
Pros: "we have a very old plane from rome to chicago no entertainent"
Cons: "it was a 10 hours fly in a old plane without any charger for computers and tablets,no individual tvs"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Cons: "We paid extra for 'exit row' seats and were sat in sets that had maybe even less room than a standard row! I was extremely disappointed, and even the flight attendant said he had flagged this with his management and they continue to sell those seats as exit row and charge a premium. Very poor business practice on BA's end and will absolutely avoid flying with them in the future."
Pros: "Customer service at American Airlines was amazingly good. They figured out the mess that the third party agent, WEBJET.COM made and fixed it."
Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."
Pros: "An old aircraft but well maintained. Crew was courteous and efficient. No food or entertainment"
Cons: "Delay in receipt of baggage at Chicago"
Cons: "Okay, but flight was delayed."
Pros: "Options for entertainment. Seats felt larger. Plenty of storage space for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Overall, I'm pleased with BA."
Cons: "This flight didn't have the individual TV screens."
Pros: "Air Berlin has very nice jets"
Cons: "The connection time was much to short, 40 minutes connection. I was in the back end of a 777 with a lap child. My stroller that was gate checked came back with a missing wheel on just"
Cons: "My flight was scheduled for 5.37pm, but came to the airport thinking that I could get an earlier flight to Chicago and I was there at 1pm, requested for standby status, did not get it because am not platinum of diamond member, asked for $75.00, of course I didn't want to pay and stayed in the airport thinking that my flight would be on time, but it was delayed and delayed and took off at last, saw O'Hare airport but it looks like the pilot could not land it because he did not get the clearance, but as a passenger, I saw the flight going around and around the Ohare area, at least 6 times, then after landing taxing took for ever. I WILL TRY NOT TO FLY IN AA AGAIN."
Pros: "delayed at both sides with very little announcements keeping us updated"
Cons: "That it got cancelled"
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."

Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "American Airlines must change the way they service."
Pros: "It's a good flight but the crew in Mexico City is really bad"
Cons: "Good flight experience, but the front desk in Mexico they are really mean. I request to talk with the manager to give me solutions but the manager was the worst. The manager show lack of experience and he was unable to give me solutions. He give me more problems than good news."
Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"
Cons: "We left Chicago close to 6 hours late and they didn't bother to put anyones luggage onboard. So we arrive close to 6 hours late and no luggage so we have to wait in line to fill out paperwork to have our luggage located/delivered along with everybody else who had checked baggage. That can not be a cost effective way to run your business"
Pros: "Loved the crew and the salmon meal was tasty"
Cons: "Needed better choice of Chardonnay"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The 5 hour delay"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flights were delayed both there and back with United for reasons that at first were due to weather then when the other airlines were leaving they switched and said system error. I barely made my wedding and missed an entire day, arriving late. Then again had flight delays back and arrived home late right before work the next day. Overall I would never fly United Airlines again."
Cons: "Our plane departed on time, 6:05 AM. About 6:40 A E turned back towards Boston. There was a problem with the wing. It got repaired. We deplaned. And waited. And waited. Then we needed fuel to be removed. And we waited. And waited. Then we got back on board, got to the runway, and the RIGHT ENGINE didn't start. So they tried to repair it, couldn't (didn't want to fly on that old, broken plane anyway at this point), and we had our flight canceled. All told, I spent 10+ hours at Logan Airport. It was an absolute disaster."
Pros: "Boarding was much more organized with lines marked for each boarding group. The crew was super friendly. Also, I received a whole can of cran-apple juice, which was much nicer than just a small cup. The tv options were also fairly priced for the options available."
Pros: "Great customer service.. Comfortable flight and smooth landing!"
Cons: "Paying for one check in bag..."
Pros: "Crew- very efficient on the ground andon the air"
Cons: "Inner flights no entertainment. Maybe dhould go wifi like LH"
Cons: "Easy for check-in and on time"
Pros: "The trip TO the United States was bearable."
Cons: "This flight was a complete disaster. I ended up b=on a different flight to Newark, as my flight to Chicago got canceled. Then that fight was unable to land, so I spent hours in baltimore, and missed my connecting flight to Brussels. By the time I finally arrived, 4 hours late, to Newark, I had to spend 2 hours in a line to get re-book, for a flight the next night. I was compensated for all this mess with a $10 food voucher, and had to get a cab from the airport to the closest and cheapest hotel. My flight to Brussels was uneventful, save one rude flight attendant, and I got to school a day late."
Pros: "The crew was very kind to everyone and it was a very pleasant flight!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Entertainment could have been better."
Pros: "The crew , living on time"
Cons: "I had no dislikes"
Cons: "O'Hare airport. Bad signage to economy parking."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The wifi for the entertainment worked perfectly, a power jack is needed to charge the device."
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant tho"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Chicago due to my first flight being delayed an hour, which in turn forced me to stay overnight because the next available flight wasn't until the next day"
Pros: "The onboard crew was lovely, I especially appreciated them asking those who were not transferring to another plane to wait until those who were got off as we were 45 minutes late"
Cons: "The male gate agent in pittsburgh was the rudest and least helpful person I have every met in all my travels. When flight was delayed for weather reasons, and looking like we might not connect in ORD he could only say 'call united'"
Pros: "Crew took special care of my guitar -- much appreciated."
Cons: "Small plane. Kept bumping my head when I got up."
Pros: "They had movies you could watch, for a price"
Cons: "I think united pays it's staff to be unnecessarily rude. It's so much rudeness that is almost ridiculous. Their demands, censure and dismissals of customers would make you think that you are their servants instead of customers."
Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Cons: "My itinerary had to completely change."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."
Cons: "Grant flight , i flew with my daughter in business class the service was very good , food was great , missed watching direct tv as the Olympic Games was going on , but over top notch"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Pros: "Was nice"
Pros: "When l got to airport I was advised my flight had been canceled. Rerouted on United airlines thru Washington Dulles. Waited on Tarmac 2 1/2 hours due to bad weather, etherwise everything was good."
Pros: "I liked when I got home 12 plus hours later than I was supposed to!"
Cons: "The three canceled flights and 7 delays that I was out through were awful!"
Cons: "We got on board, waited 20 minutes. Capt said it was a bad reverser, and we were waiting on paperwork for 15 minutes. Long story short, they make us leave the plane after 2.5 hours. Then we wait in the airport for another 2.5 hours. I missed my connection and spent 10 hours in Chicago."
Cons: "Everything. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Cons: "My connection to YYZ was cancelled and I was not even rebooked to the next flight. I needed to buy a ticket on Air Canada in order to get there. Every time I fly United I find myself asking "why in the hell am I flying United?""
Cons: "The seats on the flight from LAX to ORD are built for people who are under 6' tall. You need to disclose the fact that your seats cannot accomodate a person who is 6'2" and 200 lbs. or you will need to accept medical responsibility for the damage done to a persons musculoskeketal system."
Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."
Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "My husband and I were given seats in different rows. When you book two seats together they should be next to each other"
Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Very quick! :) nice pilot"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy.. crumbs on seats debris on floors. Dirty arm rest and seat backs"

Broken wheel and zipper!!! I also had to go out and buy a pair of pants, shirt, socks, underwear and a jacket for meetings on Thursday and Friday."
Pros: "I havd to buy a whole new flight. from mechanical errors. it was horrible. I have no help"
Cons: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."
Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."
Pros: "I did not like anything. Please people don't book through kayak. Scam website"
