Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

Having to pay $35 to check my small suitcase that could have fit in the overhead compartment. Poor communication with baggage claim carousel pickup. Upon arrival, the same baggage claim carousel (marked “United”) was used for multiple flights, causing over crowding (COVID concerns anyone?), and waiting too long to retrieve the bag.

Great experience!

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Inflight snacks and better seatback entertainment system— mine was broken: armrest controls were inoperable"
Cons: "Multiple delays and changing of gates. Sitting on the tarmac waiting to deplane for longer than communicated by pilot."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "My entertainment screen never worked for more than 30 seconds. I had to watch whatever my neighbor was watching."
Cons: "Boarding was by groups but ended up being 2 different lines of people merging into one. I felt as though boarding should be smoother/more organized."
Pros: "Plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "I pick Jetblue over other carriers because of the ability to watch TV. It wasn’t working today and the attendant was aloof and uncaring. What was worse was the bathroom in the back that was ‘out of order.’ Both of these made my flight less than I would expect and I will consider another carrier"
Pros: "The captain was nice, the cabin was clean, and there was more leg room than I am used to having."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants seemed to be in a bit of a mood. The seats weren't the most comfortable."
Pros: "I liked that they allowed my dog to get on board with me in the end. I like that they had delicious options for snacks and good entertainment during the flight."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate them questioning me about the comfort dog when all the papers were right in front of the attendant. Also, I had called in several times to make sure I had everything I needed to the last min change in having to bring my dog with me. I was told over the phone that I could have up until I boarded but then got to the airport and was commented about it a few times by JetBlue associates. It is confusing and fairly stressful especially when I called in ahead of time to confirm I was ok."
Pros: "I enjoyed the lively crew how kind and polite the flight attendants were the complimentary snacks"
Pros: "Staff was professional. I had legroom too!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Nothing to speak of."
Pros: "Boarded early, plenty of leg room, delicious in-flight free beverages & snacks, arrived at DCA 27 min early. My wife had a panic attack and the two stewardesses took great care of her and calmed her down. Despite my wife's condition, the stewardesses took great care of the rest of the passengers, too. We've flown JetBlue to Puerto Rico and loved the service. My adult son is a fan of JetBlue."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The fly-fi worked very well."
Cons: "The "tv" didn't work - One of the things I like about Jet Blue"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Safe flight."
Cons: "Male Steward was rude and impatient."
Pros: "We were delayed before take-off but the Captain kept us informed, great job!"
Pros: "roomy seats and tv at every seat. the plane was clean and crew friendly."
Cons: "nothing, had a very enjoyable flight. crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "WiFi was not working DirecTv did not work Plane was dirty Seats so old and dirty that the leather was black and cracking"
Pros: "Flight was marked as delayed but actually left about 5 minutes early."
Pros: "Getting through the airport was a breeze"
Pros: "The plane that the rerouted to replace the original plane was very comfortable. The email updates where better then the information at the gate. Normally, I enjoy flying JetBlue however, this weekend's round trip was disappointing. My 1st flight was delayed about 5 hours and the return flight was delayed as well."
Cons: "The long delay and limited snacks. (After that long delay) The incident on the plane- the passengers had to take action and not the flight attends when a passenger threaten by another passenger. A good Samaritan came to the woman's aid and ensure she was safe by switching her seat. Prior to this, another passenger had to use her call button to try to notify the flight attends because the woman was unable to. (That was her second attempt to notify the attendants). I am unclear to why her first attempt to change seats was not taken under consideration by the flight attended. The alleged passenger was clearly intoxicated and had fallen on the women. The flight attends did intervened after the flight landed at FLL. The woman was detained on the plane along with the alleged passenger. Once again, I am not sure if that was wise. The woman could have been taken off the plane safely and quested at the gate at a safe distance. The alleged passenger was too intoxicated to comply with the flight attends requests to disembark the plan. I would have liked for the JetBlue flight attends to be more proactive or at the very least to keep an eye on the situation to ensure it did not escalate. This all could have been avoided if the woman's 1st request to change her seat to one of the many available seats was granted. Better ye,t for this alleged passenger to have never been able to board the plane in his condition. It was physically noticeable and the surrounding passengers stated they could smell the alcohol on him. Disappointed!"

Pros: "The crew, and the service was great!"

Pros: "The crew, the plane, the flight, the food was all very, very good"
Cons: "We initially picked exit seats but they ended up unasigning my son's seat because he is 2 years old, both times they gave us the worst possible seats in the plane. When initially assigned my son, it said: "No one under 2 is allowed to seat in emergency seats" a bit misleading and inconvenient. Other than this we had a great experience."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I don’t even know how and where to start.. Avianca has given me issues in the past and I have decided a few more times to give them a chance. Avianca has a culture of rude and “take advantage of people” culture. I went through hell on my last flight. Left us on our connection flight in Cali, Colombia made us (15 passengers) wait for our bus we all had to pickup and carry our luggage’s out to the streets rcause they don’t have enough money to pay for a cart when we were actually in that situation because for them. Next day we were transported (they show up 2 hours later from the promised time) we were transported to the airport to actually catch a flight to another different city to then arrive wait 4 more hours to catch a plane to our final destination... a 3 hours and 45 minutes flight from Miami turned into a 4 different city, hotel and nightmare, luggage’s were broke and everybody turned out to be rude rude rude rude!!!!!!... I am still waiting for my $200 promised Boucher. This is my last time flying with AVIANCA. I am a frequent flyer and have made the decision to fly AA from now On... Actually just purchased a ticket which was actually $100 more than Avianca... nothing like great service and respect towards your clients... I’m also making sure NOBODY flys with AVIANCA."

Pros: "Comfortable newer aircraft On time departure on both outbound and return flights Full meal service with free beverage including wine and beer offered in economy class. Two free checked bags per passenger in economy class. All of the above are far superior to any airline at a competitive price"
Pros: "It was hard to not laugh at the gate confusion, time confusion, and clear general incompetence of the thousands of airport staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold. I had to complain strongly and asked to see the manager. Finally I was able to fly, but after much arguing and stress. Poor experience."
Pros: "Great flight great service."
Pros: "We left early and landed early. Nice staff and attentive. Snacks. (better get rid of the terrible so called barittos-they were awful. Cookies not bad and the snack. Stick to the sandwich and be sure to have extra mustard and mayo and option. They both are terribly dry. Very far from JetBlue-but nice airline and service."

Pros: "The staff in Bogota were oh so friendly compare to my previous experience in GYE. Same as when coming down from SJO. Beautiful. Keep it up! Friendly atmosphere just a delight, like it should be."
Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone! Pura Vida! Dave"
Pros: "I like the seat comfort and viewing screens on the seat in front of the passengers which allows for the long trip overseas to pass more easily without appearing to be as long as the trip actually takes."

The Pilot were very professional to Explain what direction the plan will take to get La gaurdia .That what I like best 👌👍5*

Professional all the way

The flight departed late and the interior temperature was very cold for the first hour of the flight. Eventually it warmed up to a normal temperature. The crew was great. My seat in comfort class was comfortable. There was no food served---only snacks.

The flight attendants were happy!

So much space!

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding"
Pros: "I wish the airlines, all airlines would keep the middle seat vacant on all flights!! Such a comfortable feeling and flight. I’ve flown multiple times this summer during Covid, having that middle seat vacant has made traveling by air for me a very good, comfortable thing again. Don’t ever go back to packing us in like cattle car flights!!"
Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."
Pros: "They did not clean with antiseptic the tray tables and tv screens between flights. Because of corona virus scare. I asked stewardess and she said no"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Pros: "The atl to bwi leg was not great. No inflight entertainment and the aircraft looked old."
Cons: "A newer aircraft that doesn't show its age would be nice"
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."

Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."
Cons: "My assigned seat was next to a morbidly obese man. He overflowed his seat and took up at least five inches of my seat. The seats have become so narrow that even an average weight male has trouble fitting his shoulders into the seats."
Cons: "On time and nice media"
Pros: "The gentleman that was calling zone 1, etc etc. was amazing. I should have grabbed his name. Kept us informed and thanked us and really appreciated our business. He rocked!"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."

Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "The stewards and flight was overall fine. In fact I found the stewards to Atlanta from West Palm very accommodating."
Cons: "I have reservation on booking Comfort plus next time I fly though. There appeared to be no difference in the seating or service as economy. A lesson learn I guess. I will atillflyDelta but stick to economy. I saw no perks"
Pros: "Just getting to my destination"
Cons: "Service very poor and seats very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Left on time. Boarded easily and arrived early"
Cons: "Flying :)"
Pros: "Excellent crew. Better drinks in comfort plus BUT NO SCOTCH!! Bummer."
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable even in special comfort plus ( too thin)."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the entertainment system worked great."
Cons: "They overbooked (as usual) and bumped me from the Atlanta to Los Angeles leg of my journey. This put me 24 hours behind and cost me hotel money."

I liked the attention at the counter and on board. Everything happened in an orderly manner. I flew with COPA in May. From Panama I flew on Thursday. I returned from Miami on a Sunday. The flight from Panama to Miami then was wonderful, but returning from Miami at the counter and boarding was a complete disaster. The operator at the counter was rude and apathetic. Because of the disorder to board we lost our spot to take off and we’re grounded for an hour. This time both ways were outstanding! I hope they continue to improve and show the same good service on weekends than the one during week days! Thank you!

Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "So, because I was 3 mins late to the gate, they made me spend another $320 for a fligh next day. I'm still in Panama city. Its unbelievable how the plane is still there, with the corridor that takes the passengers to the plane still attached to it, and they can look me straight in he face and tell me they cant reopen the door. While I'm stressfully paying an extra $320 and knowing I'm going to lose 1 whole day of my vacation in Rio because of one little detail that could be solved by opening the door and letting me in, I see the plane there sitting in the same spot for another 15-20 mins without moving. Worst company service ever. Unbelievable. I will never fly with these people again."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Boarding process in Panama is very disorganized"
Cons: "Very good"

Pros: "Better ask, what didn't like. The Cops agents were very professional and courteous. The planes were on time, boarding also and so was takeoffs."

Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Cons: "good"
Pros: "Quick boarding"

Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"
Cons: "---"
Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"
Pros: "I didn't expect to be fed on the flight so that was a nice surprise."
Pros: "la puntualidad y el buna atención."
Pros: "Inspite of being a very short flight, they offered food and beverages and for free :)"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No series or tv shows"

I purchased a seat for the extra cost (#33 C) and literally everyone (especially the crew members) hit me when they passed by. Because in front of me none was sitting, my seat was an ideal place to hit me every time with the food cart. Nightmare.

The seat was full of crumbs. Covid clean does not mean aesthetic cleaning Waiting for my suitcase was just too long. Even after the train from terminal c to a and the line in immigration, it still took 50 minutes

I was denied to board the flight with no Reason and was told I was marked as No Show meanwhile I was at the airport and the Time if Check-in and the American Airlines Agent by the name Brandon denied to Check me in Smh what a terrible experience I will never forget....purchase my Ticket back in June and only for me to be denied on the day I was scheduled to travel and then I have to purchase a new Ticket directly with Delta .😦😦

Pros: "On time good service"
Cons: "Very cramped seats on old plane."
Cons: "I don’t like the configuration BA is using in Business class. The staggered seating with 50% rear facing makes griping in and out of seats"
Pros: "The crew was incredible"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was polite and helped a lot."
Cons: "Confusing information about the terminal in Miami. Terminal C does not exist."
Pros: "Lots of room, drinks and snacks friendly crew"
Cons: "Heathrow Airport is a nightmare"
Pros: "Food extremely ordinary-crew scarce when needed-stuff “sitting” around when they should be removed-standards of “American airlines” r way below others & should not be-BA whom I booked with should find another partner-Still waiting to be impressed by a NA airline"
Cons: "Service, staff, food. Hoping the return flight will be a bit above the norm"
Pros: "The representative at Miami took forever to get a wheelchair. She did not pay attention to my ticket that states assistant needed until I said so. She was in a hurry n did not give me all her attention. I think she was rude and inconsiderate based on my age or don’t feel like been bothered"
Cons: "The representative at Miami took forever to get a wheelchair. She did not pay attention to my ticket that states assistant needed until I said so. She was in a hurry n did not give me all her attention. I think she was rude and inconsiderate based on my age or don’t feel like been bothered"
Pros: "The crew on the plane were lovely and the service was great. We paid for exit seats so had lots of leg room."
Cons: "The plane was very old and the entertainment system poor. Small screens, no wifi and laggy interface."
Cons: "Delayed again. 3 flights in a row"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and lovely, and all seemed to have a bit of humor to them."
Cons: "They ran out of dinners, and I was not able to check in 24 hours prior to select my seat."
Pros: "Meal was delicious"
Cons: "Flight delayed by rain - normal. Very little communication. Old plane with antiquated technology. Flight was extremely warm."
Cons: "No USB or power outlets. Very small screens for the entertainment. Definitely, not up to par for a long international flight."
Pros: "The Absolute Best Service I've Ever received on a flight!! I was fed snacks dinner and breakfast! The cabin crew was constantly paying attention to the passengers!! Seats were very comfortable and pillows and blankets were provided!"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The layover in London was too short and we missed the follow-on flight due to the flight getting into London late and BA not getting us through the terminal rapidly."
Cons: "Flight attendant moved my purse into an overhead bin while I slept They Couldn’t find it for over an hour. Panic. Passport and cash in purse."
Pros: "Certainly not the female airline attendant from Johannesburg to London on 1/4/2018."
Cons: "I boarded the plane and made a mistake by sitting in the wrong seat and placed my hang-up bag in the overhead compartment. When I realized that my actual seat was 10 rows back on the very last row, I moved, leaving my hang-up bag near the first seat. As time passed, I heard a woman on the intercom say something about a lost "jumper". After learning that a "jumper" is a sweater, I asked the nearby airline attendant if the sweater was a navy color, like the one that I had left in the overhead. A female airline attendant came to me, carrying my hang-up bag with my sweater and repeated 4 times that I was lucky because she was about to put my "jumper" and hangup-bag off the plane and leave it in Johannesburg since no one had responded sooner!!!! I was so stunned that I could not say anything. I only kept wondering why would anyone go into the overhead and start pulling things out? Why would someone take such extreme measures and not walk down the aisle, asking every person on the plane, including the people on the back row? This type of thing could happen to anyone. Since I did not have a name tag on the bag and I live in the US, it would have been near impossible to ever find my bag again if left in So.Africa! Plus, the woman went on and on in a very rude & condescending manor when all I could do was sit in shock, wondering why she would take the time to go through the overhead and look for a hang-up bag that does not have a name tag!!!!"
Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Poor screen quality, ok selection of movies compared to other airlines, poor selection of audio"
Pros: "Service an excellence"
Cons: "Everything was fantastic."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"
Pros: "My flight was changed from Philadelphia to London"
Cons: "Little leg space"
Pros: "Great space and sit in Economy Plus area"
Cons: "The check in process in Miami airport. Crowded, slow."
Pros: "Very good experience, will travel with you again."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and they gave enough food and water."
Cons: "We did on line check in, printed the tiket, and they decided to reprint it, and it never work, every time that we used this re-printed ticket doesn't work, we needed to call many time the staff, and in the baggage drop off constantly said that our baggage hast over weigth without weigth it, the scale said another thing, I have the impresion that they were pushing for extra-weigth pay."
Pros: "That the flight only came in 15 minutes late."
Cons: "An old beat up plane in desperate need of renovation especially for a long haul flight. Only one nice flight attendant who tried to help. Others not interested. Terrible seat that I tried to move with no success. Did not eat anything or watch any entertainment. Very unpleasant experience. I have flown this route many times and next time I would fly Swiss through Zurich or Geneva as I have done before."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and hard working."
Cons: "Got at the airport plenty of time prior, waited well over an hour in line to get a boarding pass, while the one ticket taker had no sense of urgency. Could have easily missed the flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No good provisions for infants"
Pros: "Flying BA is like flying any other American provider. The service was good, the food was meager and mediocre. We flew the same route with SWISS Air a few months ago and the seats are a bit more comfy and the food, snacks and drink were more frequent and delicious."
Cons: "Nothing not to like, just have had better for same economy ticket."
Pros: "Very prompt and good communication from pilot"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Really nothing"
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 3 hrs which meant I would miss 2 onward connections-- had to be re- booked on American"
Pros: "Clear boarding, polite crew and a terrific set of films and TV shows."
Cons: "6ft 2 frame in economy was very tight and aisle seats have little space next to entertainment base stations. Food was acceptable, no more."
Cons: "BA flight was ok, but as we booked through American Airlines, online check-in was impossible. In consequence we could get only separated seats, needed more time for checkin etc. As we have booked the flight with AA Budapest-London-Miami-Sao-Paolo, and Santiago-Miami-London- Budapest, we faced this problem several times."
Cons: "Absolutely cold flight, AC was like 15 deg. C"
Pros: "Silent aircraft, good indoor climate"
Cons: "Food was awful, boarding takes too long"
Cons: "Departed one hour late from Miami"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours because maintenance needed to change a tire on the airplane. The delay would have been acceptable if it wasn't for the excuses the airline offered. First, they said maintenance couldn't find a spare tire, and when they did rob a tire from another plane, they said the delay was due to FAA paperwork. These reasons, most likely true, suggest American Airlines (British Airways sub-contracted this flight to its partner, American Airlines) was not prepared to handle such an emergency."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was alright. Good entertainment and comfy plane."
Pros: "Nice and polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Breakfast was very poor and bad."
Pros: "I made it safely to Barcelona"
Cons: "Where shall I begin? The crew was ok, makes me miss flying JetBlue, the crew can learn a lot from them in what customer service and friendly crew is about!!! In my opinion, if they had the chance to learn, this crew would be the same as they are, because it feels like, get them in and complete the shift. The seat was so uncomfortable that I spent the entire 9 hrs awake. The entertainment was terrible. When watching a movie you can't simply start it when you want so if you miss show time when it started you have to begin where it is...I hope that 1st class is different than what it feels like to ride in coach because it makes me feel like steerage! I most certainly would not take this airline to Europe unless I had better accommodations because being in the coach section sucks!"
Cons: "Unfortunately, the passenger beside me a young man was over served by the flight attendant and became extremely inebriated so that when I tried to ignore him and sleep, he kept touching me, rubbing my arm and leg. The crew were aware of what was happening and tried to reprimand him. It made my flight extremely difficult and it was all because the flight attendant served him doubles of whiskey (which the passenger was drinking neat) on six occasions, two bottles of red wine and that does not include the doubles the passenger procured for himself from other attendants. In all the behaviour of this passenger made my flight a complete nightmare and it was totally unnecessary for him to be served this much alcohol."
Pros: "A long haul flight in coach can be interesting, but the BA staff, as always, were very cordial. Security was great...thorough."
Pros: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew s oustanding. They were courteous, helpful, very professional and made the flying experience a pleasure for my family. With respect to the Miami ticket agents, there are 3 people I want to highlight for excellent service. Denise, who courteously accommodated our family and rescheduled our flight as needed, another young lady who checked us in. She was sensitive to our party of 5 and was extremely pleasant. The check in process was chaotic at best and she helped make it a pleasant experience. The person is Diane, the manager at the Miami airport. She helped bring order to a completely disorganized check in process and ended up personally escorting us through security toe sure that we made our flight on time. Diane is an excellent leader."
Cons: "The check in process was completely disorganized, due to a cancelled flight from Miami to Heathrow the night before. And there were 3 scheduled flights already that people were checking in for as well. There had to have been at least 600+ people in line to check in, plus those from the night before. The Miami airport doesn't have kiosks for passengers to easily check in and bag drop, which doesn't make sense in such a large and busy international airport. That would have made a huge difference in this case. Also, we paid for our seats to select them prior to 24 hours and we ended up not sitting together."
Pros: "The food and service was good. The seats in coach were uncomfortable and the entertainment was subar as there were only 8 or so movies no being recent release"
Cons: "The lack of decent movies"
Pros: "We took off with an hour delay but we caught up so there were no delays in London. Smooth flight. The guy at check in was great, very helpful and pleasant (I forgot his name unfortunately)."
Cons: "-The crew was pretty unfriendly. They did not smile and one crew basically yelled at me becasue he did not hear my reply when he asked what I want for dinner so instead of asking politely again he started to yell at me "Chicken or pasta?'"- I think Allistair was his name. The other lady also came across rude to me when she said "You have to speak up becasue I cant hear you!"- sorry, English is not my first language but I think the polite way should have been "Sorry m'am I could not hear you, could you please spak up?" - entertainment needs better selection"
