A MI ME ACOMODARON DONDE SE LES DIO LA GANA, NO DONDE ESTABA SUPUESTA A SENTARME PORQUE SUBIERON DE ULTIMAS A UNA PERSONA EN SILLA DE RUEDAS Y ME TUVIERON QUE INCOMODAR PARA DARLE LA SILLA A EL.

Cons: "Worst crew ever attitude was aufaul"

Pros: "I liked the attention in the airplane and the food, very tasty."
Cons: "When I asked in the gate about the delay of the boarding time and the girl who spoke to me was a bit rude, maybe because a lot of people asked the same thing but that is not reason to treat a client, and when we were on board we have to wait like 10 minutes until enter in the plane because of the delay they did not have the things ready yet. and comparing the previous flight from CCS the tablets were old and did no have new things."

Pros: "The crew was really nice! They were very energetic!"
Cons: "I am not blaming the airline, but the Salt Lake Airport. Everything was slow and everything was delayed! The airport staff was friendly, but airport management needs be prepared and perform better. Compared to other airport, there was not that many people flying, and still there processing issues."

Pros: "great crew and very welcoming for me and my small dog."

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

Pros: "The check in counter personnel was VERY UNHELPFUL. I was running late to previous Delta flight baggage delay. The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train."
Cons: "The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!"

Pros: "Everything but the plane The crew and gate staff were well trained and professional. Very impressive the way they smoothly guided us into and out of the plane. Especially their handling of a few snafus. Well done!"
Cons: "The plane was older and not as nice as the one from ROA to ATL. That said it was still better than the puddle jumper jets used by United and US Air."

Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"

Cons: "They did not have a “gate available” for our arrival so we have been waiting in the plain on the tarmac for over fourty minutes and still waiting. This is ridiculous. We purchase tickets at delta for a plain that had a departure and arrival gate. This should not be happening"

Cons: "... on top of that I kindly requested to speak with a supervisor and i was denied it. As a customer I deserved that. I would a ticket with Aerolineas and nowhere it said it was delta. I followed the baggage allowance explained on kayak website and on Aerolineas Argentinas. I took a bicycle which is free and i pay $100 to packed it as Aerolineas wanted. When I arrived it was a Delta flight and they told they don't allow bicycles and that i had to play $150. Aerolineas website and kayak clearly says that bicycles were free on my flight. I show the agent my ticket and that no where it said delta to consider what he was saying since it is an alliance but i was not informed about it. He said no and after wait there for a while before boarding i kindly ask to speak with a supervisor and the denied it and disappeared. I request a refund of my fee to you for providing incorrect information."

Cons: "Old crew was surly. Plane had much problems and finally replaced. Left 5 hrs late. Delta claims it doesn't have to compensate for a late flight - just a cancelled one so guess which this was The baggage fees are obscene and the gouging of the customer is immoral. No wonder people hate the airlines."

Cons: "Copa Airlines has the worse entertainment system. I flew business and the food was pathetic. If you are sitting at the last two rows (out of four), they might run out of options for dinner and you are left without choices.

Cons: "The food has few to none vegetarian/vegan options. These days more and more people are trying to eat in a less cruel and healthier way.

All in all you offer a great service =)"

Pros: "roomy seats, excellent food, very pleasant flight attendants--i would fly Copa again in a heartbeat"

Pros: "Food, attention, kindness"

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: "We liked everything. It was short but great."

Cons: "I was forced/tricked to check my instrument on the boarding gate when what i really asked for is for the crew to take it o tha plane or for them to let me take it on carry on. Someone lied to me and then they checked in with the loggage"

Pros: "Short flight Good space inflight"
Cons: "Awful boarding, kept standing until everyone else was in the plane even though I was second in line, very inefficient crew. Only a few movies to watch"

Cons: "I flight from Panamá to bs as at least 10 times a year, and I have Presidential Platinum status, never in all the flights I receive my luggage with priority. It doesn't matter if the have the priority sign, no one respect that. Panama airport use to be a good airport, now you can't really buy anything because they don't accept credit cards, and the Copa saloon is always full, so I'm thinking on flying avianca from now on."

Cons: "No matter if you have priority in your bags, in Buenos Aires is always the same, the bags come last."

Pros: "Fast boarding and very nice crew. The airports in Mexico City and Merida are super sparkling clean!!!!!!"

Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with the airline and its services."

Cons: "I reviewed the wrong one. My last comment and score was for this flight. My last flight even though the spaces were smaller I had no problems with my bag and it was a nice flight."

Pros: "Crew was polite and welcoming. Seats were good"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the seats very comfortable (we traveled in business class)."

Cons: "missing luggage for 2 days now. not Good!!!"

Pros: "The sandwich was okay. I liked the individual video screens, good entertainment options. I like that my checked bag was free."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude. I was seated in an emergency exit isle, and I was told that I couldn’t have my handbag under the seat in front of me. This is the first time I’ve heard of a airline with this policy. My bag was put in the overhead bin and I couldn’t access my tablet or headphones or medicine during the flight. Also, the chair (maybe because it was the exit row) would not recline. This was pretty terrible for a red eye flight. I asked the flight attendant if I could switch seats, (well before take off) I didn’t mind if it was a middle seat, just somewhere I could have my bag with me... she rudely remarked that the plane was late and I needed to sit back down. Terrible service, it was a simple request. I’m sure someone with long legs would have been happy to switch with me. I also don’t like that my carry on bags had a weight limit."

Cons: "My screen didn’t work / worked erratically. Luckily there was nobody in the middle seat next to me and I could use that one."

Cons: "The plane left almost an hour late, when previously it has said it was running on schedule. The seats are cramped, barely any leg room to get comfortable in."

Cons: "We fly in 777 plane, but the crew member already occupied all of my overhead baggage space. I need to move two seat back for my bag. I am already the first passenger on board of the plane. That also cost the other passenger think I occupied their baggage space and be not too friendly with me during the trip. The notice board in the airport is confuse, we know the gate and the depart time, but no one show up until 120 min before the plane depart. And finally the plane delay and no information show the plane will delay for how long. Bad information in the counter My handle of the sit is broken I have photo to proof if you would need it, I save it with me. The lighting system in the plane is very stupid or may be the crew don't know how to operate, every time they just turn on all the light no matter we are sleep or not! This is a red eye flight passenger should have a choice to not get disturb, when the light on I need to turn it off every time! And the next passenger don't really know how to turn the light off that always on during the flight! Super bad flying experience. Not comfortable at all. Can't sleep much!"

Cons: "Re scheduled 3 different times and flight still arrived 1 hour late."

Pros: "Not a thing the flight was delayed twice."
Cons: "Everything. The flight was delayed the people were rude. I did not get my wheel chair and I was not compensated."

Pros: "The staff was very professional"

Cons: "Delayed for no reason, very irresponsible msnagement"

Pros: "Everything nice fly Ride on time"

Pros: "Great customer service and nice flight"
Cons: "It took a while to board"

Pros: "Schedule on time"

Pros: "Flight attendant they were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The boarding in Guadalajara"

Pros: "All the airplane attendants were super helpful and friendly. And the complementary food and drinks were s delicious and refreshing, which is surprising for an airplane company."
Cons: "The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because in Mexico City due to the Mexican government we had to transfer our bags manually. Nothing due to Aeromexico's doing."

Cons: "100% of my flights on AeroMexico have been delayed by 1 hour or more. In one case recently by nearly 4 hours. That if milely my random experience; it's still unacceptable, especially since they offer no apology or compensation."

Cons: "They did not refund money as I didnt take flight. I request for cancelling a week before"

Cons: "Flight has been pushed back on multiple occasions and we're still waiting to hear if it will ever leave or be canceled due to an ill flight attendant . Staff also says if canceled no accommodations will be provided because of a convention in GDL. Maybe we'll make it home eventually."

Pros: "The boarding part was good."
Cons: "People who work at aeromexico need to speak more English, too much Spanish speaking with no English speaking. I guess you do not cater for tourists speaking English. I think that the aeromexico employees in mexico city is very rude, I lost my flight, because of that. They did not want to wait a few minutes for my connecting flight. I ended losing the flight and had to take delta back to NY City with better service and fare. When I ask at the counter for another fare by aeromexico - they told me $1,500 for business class and I paid $534.00 with delta. Plus aeromexico need to have more than one fight per day to NYC."

Pros: "The crew was great"

Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."

Pros: "More entertainment options, plugs for charging electronics, and better food"
Cons: "Pretty much everything could have been better, including the plane"

Cons: "5 hour delay caused us to miss connecting flights so got stranded in Los Angeles."

Cons: "Weather delay 5 hours"

Cons: "Seats terribly small. No leg room. Sat on runway 30 mins before departure totally cramped"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and we almost missed our connecting flight, but the pilot was on our side and we made it just in time!"

Pros: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Flight got delayed several times. Had to reschedule flight."

Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"

Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."

Pros: "The snacks."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever been on. Delayed 7 hours. Made it to deicing pad only to be told we needed to turn back to the gate due to technical issues. Kept being told 15 more minutes until departure."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The seat (as I am sure you know) is not 100% comfortable. One of those little pillows that some airlines provide would have been appreciated as I need a bit more back support."

Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed which caused me to miss the last flight for my connecting flight."

Cons: "2 published delays and then another 30 minues waiting to push away from gate. Almost 2 hours late"

Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."

Pros: "The pilot sounded nice"

Pros: "This was our first time flying Avianca. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful!! We will definitely fly Avianca again to Colombia!"

Pros: "Wonderful and super friendly crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute. We were applicable to switch with another couple who were in the same situation as us....."

Cons: "One of the oldest aircrafts - unbelievable they would use this from Milan to JFK! There were NO TV screens on the seats and whats worse is there was nowhere to plug in headphones to watch the one tiny TV screen for all. When we were landing the lights in our cabin - the crew was mediocre - the food was indelible - I advent flown American for over a decade internationally and there is a good reason why i will never again!!"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Boarding agents could use some customer service training."

Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Long wait for clearance"

Pros: "Good choice of movies."

Pros: "On time and what was advertised. Considering that the flight was after Thanksgiving and very full, we still had a good experience."

Pros: "Food & Entertainment were good. Thankfully the crew seemed to have waited for us."
Cons: "We were late, so some guy took my seat. Attendant was annoyed that I didn't just take any open seat. I wanted the seat I purchased, near my wife. The other passenger didn't gain anything by taking my middle seat as he travelled alone."

Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."

Pros: "On time arrival"

Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"

Cons: "No volé en LATAM si no en AA y en esta compañía al principio no sabían sobre mi reserva y cuando si, no pude hacer el checking online, sino solo en el aeropuerto , en ambos vuelos"

Pros: "Everything was great. Comfortable seats & good service."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight was delayed because of a "problem with the plane"- we had to wait at the gate for 2.5hrs for the mechanics to work on it."

Cons: "Very small niggle but it could be very frustrating for people. I watched the Hobbit trilogy on the flight. The films appear in the menu alphabetically. Viewing them this way leads to a 1,3,2 order.... There is no indication (that I saw) for the order they should be viewed."

Pros: "Everything was very pleasant for myself and my four year old grandson. Have never had any problems flying with American Airlines. Thank you"
