The flight was late so my connecting flight I missed to Curitiba, they couldn’t hold the flight for five freaking minutes while I ran across the airport I’m 64 years old but that’s OK I made accommodations and got me on another flight six hours freaking later

The only thing that was inconvenient about this flight was the check in process. There was a lot of confusion. The flight itself was very good. Super friendly attendants, decent food, good in-flight entertainment.

I have some pictures to prove it , my flight from SP to Fort Lauderdale I could not sleep at all. Not only me but the passenger in front of me . The seat was broken, where you rest your head it was falling apart, I tried to put it back but kept falling. The flight attendant tried once and gave up . I asked to change seats and they did not let me do . I had to fly basically straight all night , I could not rest my head on the seat. Never again with this company

Pros: "The food served was really good."
Pros: "they change the gate last min"
Cons: "Should advise the passagers better"
Pros: "I loved that even during a pandemic, alcohol in glassware and full meals were served in business class (unlike other airlines, so I avoided them). The lighting looked nice, the crew was professional and attentive, and the bathroom was well maintained. The blanket and pillow were comfy as well. I like the 1-2-1 layout in business class, which leaves window seats with a lot of windows and privacy."
Cons: "The headphones were not the most comfortable, sometimes the passenger moving around behind you will shake your seat too, and before take-off the plane was quite hot. Also a lot of the food choices I wanted were gone already but not a big deal as there were many choices."
Cons: "Two hours stuck at gate with no information. Info on site and at airport on baggage costs different. Left bag behind to fit more cargo. Two days and haven’t delivered bag."
Pros: "The snacks were great! The check in staff was also really helpful. They even checked my companion and my bag for free."
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed which made getting to the next connection a little stressful especially since we had to recheck our baggage. However, the staff was really kind about it."
Cons: ".."
Cons: "more and more current movie options"
Pros: "The crew was so kind, the food was great. The in flight entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "The plane was very cold!"
Pros: "Crew was good but seat very tide for big people. Many close to me not well distributed."
Cons: "Space"
Pros: "2 seats, not 3, in this part of Economy"
Cons: "The bag check price info on the website was completely wrong... At the airport, they asked for USD 100, not USD 30 as the website indicated. Ended up lugging the (heavy) cabin size bag..."
Pros: "Airplane was comfortable and food was good. The crew was also very friendly."
Cons: "There was a long delay in the connection at Viracopos/Campinas: there was a technical problem with the airplane. I arrived very late in Curitiba (approximately 1 hour late)."
Pros: "Great experience overall"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, it took flight attendants 1.5 hour to start service after take-off."
Pros: "Nothing in special."
Cons: "Boarding: Stay in the line for “several zones” and then put everybody on the same bus is ridiculous. Food is more or less OK, but all the movies can be seen in TV (HBO, Telecine, etc.)"
Pros: "We got all of our bags! No lines. Smooth sailing"
Pros: "Crew was very good, one crew member took time to make me coffee as I entered the plane"
Cons: "The food could have been better, maybe a bit more legroom. But definitely would like better food. The spaghetti and meatballs were good dinner, but I did not like the vegatables. I did, however, like the pudim."
Pros: "My seat 28H didn't recline"
Cons: "More recent movies on board"
Pros: "Good food, good plain condition, good entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was very good, mainly when compared to other airlines: the boarding, the condition of the plain, the comfort, entertainment and food."
Cons: "It is hard to say... But I had a problem with gate information on my first leg. This could have been better handled."
Pros: "I loved my trip the flight was amazing"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful"
Pros: "Bus service from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 was clearly marked and frequent. The flight crew members were all helpful and friendly and I enjoyed the drink (especially suco de maracuja) and snack offerings. As I spoke only limited Portuguese, I greatly appreciated the attempts made by the ground staff and flight crew to communicate with me, both in English and via hand gestures. I am certain that no domestic airline would be so helpful to non-English speakers in the USA!"
Cons: "I realize Azul cannot help being stuck in Terminal 2, but it's not the most comfortable place to wait for a flight. Also, after I walked through the gate, several boarding flights merged confusingly in a single passageway with exits to multiple planes and many people got lost and ended up (temporarily!) on the wrong airplane, despite heroic attempts by the ground crew to direct passenger traffic. There must be a better method than having everyone follow colored lines to the planes - it wasn't working!"
Pros: "Uau!! Azul! Amazing!! Every single staff I met treated with so much professionalism!! Thank you! First time flying with Azul!! I had heard raving reviews fr9m my parents and now I know why!"
Cons: "No much space in the seats"
Cons: "The crew was non-responsive to simple requests. The food was abismal and void of nutrition."
Pros: "CLEAN EFFICIENT"
Cons: "BILLING FOR SEATS THAT ARE CLEARLY AVAILABLE, BLOCKING 75% OF SEATS TO RAISE PRICES TO SIT TOGETHER!"
Pros: "The crew service was great! ...I do travel a lot on business and on a very few of my trips I have been so well served. Thank you for everything!"
Cons: "Well, of course the space for stretching my legs was not that big... But I undesrtand..."
Cons: "Bags should be included in ticket price. Ticket prices didn’t go down by charging bags separately. Just a big dissatisfaction."
Pros: "The selection of tv shows (Game of Thrones)"
Cons: "Not much leg room (I’m six feet tall)"
Pros: "Flight was fast and safe."
Cons: "Easy going. No complaints"
Pros: "Everything was really nice"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Attentive service, new equipment. Very similar to flying JetBlue in its early years in the US."
Cons: "Azul app only available in Portuguese. Online check-in was difficult-- upgrades, seat selection, or any change that requires a fee not possible online for domestic or international flights if you are not a Brazilian citizen"
Pros: "space for legs."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Despite buying a seat with extra room, it's really complicated for you to open your laptop and get some work done during a 10h flight. Also, during boarding, one of the employees removed me from my seat "because I didn't pay extra", although I was showing her the purchase receipt, she insisted that that was not my seat."
Pros: "All on time and excellent treat"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "checkin was a disaster. Could only be described as chaos in VCP."
Pros: "Check in, boarding, flight attendence, food, comfort inside the cabin, all very good"
Cons: "Overall very satisfied"
Pros: "Boarding, Confort, entertainment and the"
Cons: "I dinot like the food, the dparting delay and lack of informations about the reason of delay, the cabin was extremely hot before take off and extremrly cold during flight."
Cons: "We're still waiting for the flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, no one sat next to me, so I had plenty of space."
Cons: "TV channels were not all working."
Pros: "I don't speak Portuguese but everyone was very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "We called and they were able to schedule us on a different flight. Which is all they could do."
Pros: "The crew were very outgoing and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are very small and almost impossible to sleep overnight."
Cons: "I always talk great of Jetblue, I always fly on Latam and american to Lima, but this time because of such a positive experience with domestic flights on Jetblue; I decided to fly on Jetblue. But it was a big mistake, I’m never flying on jet blue again on international flights. And will not recommend it."
Cons: "I missed my original flight due to weather and JetBlue booked me on the next one but it wasn’t for another 24 hours. I only missed the flight by a few minutes but the crews were not communicating with each other that they had a passenger arriving for that flight. Because the delay was weather related, they wouldn’t provide accommodations. And it was 1 in the morning. So I missed a whole day of my trip and had to sleep in the airport. I will not be flying with JetBlue again."
Pros: "The crew were great. The seat could always be bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Examine the seats in the cabin it seems to be loose from the mounting to the floor."
Pros: "The price on ticket"
Cons: "Improve in flight entertainment . The plane had screens that did not work or had problems with the audio jack . Either they make a WORKING app for in flight entertainment- OR fix the devices of the plane. The plane was boarded one hour late at least, that was very annoying ."
Pros: "JetBlue it have a lot more space for your and it was on time too but this morning the rain delay us a bit because they close one of the run way so it was not easy to get out"
Cons: "Entertainment System wasn’t working properly. Movies were down as were many of the channels. Although a disappointment, JetBlue is still amazing!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was bad and expensive. The tv was not working properly.and I did not have tv at all during the whole flight."
Pros: "Terrible mis maletas no aparecen, pésimo servicio"
Pros: "Gabe me a free wine"
Pros: "A lot"
Cons: "a little comfy seats"
Pros: "Jeffrey from the crew was outstanding and entertaining!"
Pros: "The crew, snacks, leg room."
Cons: "Plane was a little old and dirty. Flight was delayed ~1hr"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight and overcrowded"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough once it got going after a 5-hour delay."
Cons: "Flight from FLL to SFO was delayed by 5 hours due to a technical issue with the plane. Upon arrival I received an apology email from JetBlue and a flight voucher. However, I will also be filing a claim with the airfare app to seek reimbursement for the enourmous inconvenience this delay caused."
Pros: "Boarding was on time. Flight arrived early. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "No issues."
Cons: "The planes are incredibly outdated. The flight was delayed due to maintenance issues and I see why! The life vests under the seat were falling down and sliding all around the floor. It was a mess."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Not much food options available. The tv was not working. The audio was off as well. The seat should recline a little more."
Pros: "The crew on flight was awesome"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and late for my trip"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Checked in online, but no gate was assigned. When I asked the person at the desk what gate I was to board at, he looked up the information as if I was asking him for the access code Chase's bank vault. He didn't even write it down even thought he had a pen in his hand. Apparently, at customers, we are not suppose to get this information and it's a burden on the employees to give it. Again the flight was late and while I know it was due to weather, we were seated in the plane and sat at the gate for more than an hour. Apparently, we were not cleared to be given an update. Once again, the speakers at the seat didn't work. Apparently, this is a constant problem with JetBlue"
Pros: "I liked that all people working for Jetblue can't wait to be of assisstance to you. All are well spoken and neat. The operation runs so smoothly. Its just a wonderful experience."
Pros: "Lost both luggages now I have nothing and still do not know when I have my luggage."
Pros: "Amazing service from start to finish, movies for really long flights, comfortable seats and always a pleasurable experience :)"
Cons: "Leg room is tight but I can live with that"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "The seatback tv was not working well and the Wifi was so bad it wouldn't even stream music the first 3 hours of the flight."
Pros: "Almost everything was great"
Cons: "Slight delay, but good"
Pros: "Checking in"
Cons: "Delayed on take off"
Cons: "One of the main reasons why I chose Jetblue its because it is an ALMOST 4-5 star experience with great affordable ticket prices. Unfortunaltelly the ALMOST it is so, due such an important role such a host/hostess at the airport representing so poorly the company, EVERY TIME I leave from fortlauderdale airport. Once the check-in kiosk fails to complete to check you in (and I am ok with machines poor work) you are directed to a crew members in the counters. A host/hostess from jetblue standing in front of the counters, instead of greet you properly or showing some sort of degree of willingness to welcome you or help you tell you "yes, what do you need... ? That never fails! It feels like you are breaking in into a zone you are not suppose to be, and annoyingly you are disturbing these people. It so confusing why they have those attitudes, specially at that position, where you really need to clear up the bad weed in choosing your personnel. I think these few"crew members" can make a smooth transition to nightclub bouncers, where I'm sure will be a great fit."
Cons: "people at country kind of rude, after printing boarding pass, there's only one person helping costumers, guy receiving luggage he trew them like trash bags."
Pros: "Every thng but get bumped for my original departure date!"
Cons: "They over booked and closed the doors 30min before take off missed an important appointment! !! Not happy at all"
Pros: "I have never seen an airline get the bags off the plane and onto the baggage carousel as quickly as JetBlue did on my flight!"
Cons: "Wished they had sandwiches for sale. It was a noon flight arriving to EWR at 3. That is time to eat lunch."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. The snacks and drinks were free and had a good variety to choose from. Watching Direct tv was an added bonus. The attendants were all very nice and efficient."
Cons: "It would have been quicker and easier to board from the back of the plane forward. No one would have to wait while people stowed their bags and the people seated would not have to suffer through being hit with bags as people struggled to get through with their luggage."
Pros: "We got there safely"
Cons: "Crew seemed rushed and tired. Short answers. Couldn't hear the call to board or instructions from the Jet Blue area where you could recharge electronics, so the crew seemed peeved when I didn't have my passport at the ready. I expected a much more upbeat and festive feel going to a happy place like Nassau but instead felt pushed along."
Cons: "We had booked our flight well in advance (oct 2017). Six travelers sitting in one row. Day before checked in through the jet blue app and our electronic boarding passes had our seats confirmed. Next day check bags and print boarding passes and our seats are all changed and everyone is separated!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overhead reading lights didn’t work, my partners tv didn’t work, the movie I had was only in Spanish and the overhead bins were too small and had to gate check my bag Sloppy plane maintenance by JetBlue Not worth the extra money to sit in extra leg room seats over$120 for two of us"
Pros: "Enough leg room"
Cons: "A 5 hour fly with no food. charge me for coffee charge me for earphones $5, with no signal to watch a movie or tv it was delayed enough that I miss my connecting plane on latam to Montevideo.i was taken to a nice Sheraton till next night to fly in avianca.at nine pm. at 8 pm avianca cancel that trip so I was send to Chile. got there at 1pm, no luggage, wait till eight am for the fly to Uruguay got to my final destination 3days later,today is my 4day of my vacation with no luggage"
Pros: "The ladies at the gate were able to provide us with the best updates and tried their best to keep everyone calm and answer as many questions as possible and were constantly checking for updates. They also provided water and chips for us where no one else was trying t do anything at all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours due to mechanical issues in the cockpit. Why they would think we would want to fly on that plane after the pilot refused the "fix" and left because he and his crew "timed out" because we waited so long. Flight was scheduled to depart at 8:26pm, we didn't depart until well after 1am. I got home at 6am! The ladies at the gate were awesome, however the "supervisor, Armondo Gonzalez Figueroa, only came to restate what had already been said by the gate agents, did not have ANY answers, did not offer any solutions, barely answered any questions, and stopped the gate agents from removing blankets of the plane to provide to the many many passengers who were waiting there freezing. The compensation offered was a joke. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!"
Pros: "pleasant polite and arrived early!"
Pros: "everything on flight was excellent!"
Cons: "at time of flight: the price!"
Pros: "Crew very helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay"
Pros: "People were rude, from smart comments, to roll their eyes, to very little assistance, only one movie playing, and the rest of my channels were looking for signal, not to mention they offer WiFi yet it’s not working at all."
Cons: "Hire better people, more friendly, that it doesn’t seem like a drag to hep others, check the equipment, and make sure we’re comfortable."
Pros: "Smooth process, friendly crew"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly Flight was okay"
Cons: "Female attendant was very unpleasant"
Pros: "the food options and staff"
Cons: "i reserved two seats together and when we checked in we were sitting apart."
Cons: "It was cold. Regulating temperature would be nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed and couldn't land at la guardia. Had to get a taxi to get back to laguardia because it landed inJFK"
Cons: "Could've had us out the next morning on latam but they kept us there another nite. We missed half of our hunt in Argentina. Worst airline!!!!!"
Cons: "Horrible!! Significant delays. Missed my connector due to delay then was delayed again when leaving Florida. Horrible experience and will probably never fly Jet Blue again."
Pros: "Not much. They did put me in a nice hotel for 2 nights when their late arrival caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "Food was a bag of chips Flight was over 2 hours late causing me to miss connecting flight to destination. Jet Blue claimed they could not put me on the next flight because it was full and was on another airline. They put me in a hotel for the remainder of the night , all the next day and the following night. I had paid for a 4 day vacation at a resort in Argentina so my 4 day stay became a 2 day stay because Jet Blue would not purchase a seat from a booked passenger on the next flight as I requested. I will never use this airline again and would strongly advise anyone who wants or needs to be at their destination on time avoid them."
Pros: "I love the movie options and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "One crew member was not so friendly. She had a very serious, almost angry, look on her face that made me hesitant to ask her for water. Even when I did ask for water, she seemed annoyed so I never bothered to ask for a cup of ice. I dont expect service with a smile all the time but she appeared miserable. Maybe that's just her face but I'm used to a more pleasant crew at Jet Blue. However, the lady that greeted us on the plane was nice throughout the whole flight."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed about an hour. Booked more than 4 months in advance but apparently seats were not assigned on this segment. Not even at check-in, only at gate. We were early, but they could not seat our family together. Not acceptable. This part worked fine on our way to FLL, so there's no excuse for not working on the flight back."

It was 40min delayed but overall the flight was ok.

Boarding process is really bad, delayed flight no announces, really poor information.

Cons: "Great company"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "Short fligt"
Cons: "Crew came in late. Airline did not explain anything. Ended up taking off 1hour after departure time."
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "El vuelo me dejo en bogota"
Pros: "The crew is busy so that she might forget the request."
Cons: "Maybe more person."
Cons: "Honestly everything was perfect transportation wise. The only issue I had was that my bag was broken in the process. The strap was almost ripped completely off and it made the rest of my trip a little inconvenient because I had to catch more flights and I had to check my bag. This made hard for me."
Pros: "First flight with Avianca. Truly enjoyed it."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Charming crew Excellent attention. Very helpful"
Pros: "Very good flight"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "There was a delayyyyy pffff, 1.30h in the plane waything and then 20 min flying"
Pros: "service, great plane, always on time. With Avianca you cannot go wrong. if you find a Delay is usually not because of them"
Pros: "service, great plane, always on time. With Avianca you cannot go wrong"
Pros: "The crew was welcoming, pleasant, and helpful. The seats came with a nice amount of leg room which made the ride more comfortable. Also there were many entertainment options; new movies, music, and games. Really pleased with the flight!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind, great flight!"
Pros: "Fly on time, nice food."
Pros: "Service. The plane"
Cons: "Just awful!!!! Original lay over was 2 hours in Cartagena it became 7 hours. Missed my rental car. Missed my first day at the hotel Los recuerdos!! Just awful. I need something done."
Cons: "La puntualidad de la aerolinea"
Pros: "My seatmate was the only good thing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarding left a majority of passengers standing on the ramp for 10+ minutes. Business boarding seems non-existent. Lavatory had no facial tissue and ran out of tp. Service was meh. Hand towels were heated up wet wipes. Hardware was ancient. Enforcing safety rules was not a priority."
Pros: "Fast"
Pros: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "We had a long delay. It would be good if in the future the crew would announce the reason for the delay. I did ask and they said they did not know. Any other airline would say what is going on to keep people relaxed"
Pros: "Fue todo muy puntual saludas y lkegadas muy buen servicio"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This was another connecting flight. Awful the dynamics of: “its ok for your flight to be late, is Avianca”."
Pros: "No delay in takeoff"
Cons: "Check in was incredibly slow, food was substandard"
Cons: "I did not like how during reservation, you cannot put a space between the two words in the first name or last name. For example, I was forced to put "MariaAlejandra" as the first name instead of "Maria Alejandra". I had to call the airlines and go through a hassle to ensure there will be no problems boarding the plan because of this minor name difference."
Pros: "Probably one of the most modern and comfortable planes I've even been on."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Lost the flight. The flight was closed early, even though a delayed message was sent and it stayed at the gate for a while"
Cons: "I had been checked in and when I arrived at the gate they told me and my 13 year old son that we could not fly on our direct flight to Medellín because it was overbooked and they had decided to change planes. Absolutely ridiculous, it was about 20-30 passengers that were denied boarding, including us. They sent us on a plane through Bogota, then to Medellín, arriving 7 hours later and only with a dumb breakfast voucher. I spoke to them that I had an important medical appointment for which I was travelling for, it did not matter. They made no no accommodations whatsoever."
Pros: "Great atmosphere. Excellent movie selections."
Pros: "Schedule"
Cons: "Storm during flight"
Cons: "Left us in the airplane for 3 hours because of an internal problem of Avianca"
Cons: "I was not notified that departure time was changed, it was put ahead one hour and almost lost the flight."
Cons: "I was first on a direct flight to Medellin then they changed me to a connrcting flight to bogota then to Medellin. A direct flight that would have been one hour changed. Now it was a 3 hour flight. Well it ended up being like a 6 hour flight with so many delays. Ended up losing a whole day because of it. I was not happy about it."
Cons: "Avianca cambió nuestros vuelos directos de Isa y regreso sin consultarnos por Bogotá Habiendo otras opciones mejores"
Pros: "Very comprehensive service. They don’t charge anything extra, the entertainment options are good, the service excellent, the food okay. Much better than most US airlines."
Cons: "This is complete false advertisement and a blatant example of bait and switch. After booking 4 direct flights from New York to Barranquilla to Cartagena to Medellin and back to New York, only one of which was through bogota, I got 3 notifications that all my flights were now going through bogota with 3.5 hr layovers! Worst airline ever."
Pros: "Flight was quick but equipped with music shows and games. They informed us they would transfer bags for us which was great because I would have to worry."
Pros: "Super quick flight. Loved that they transferred the luggage for us while we switched flights."
Cons: "The flight from Bogota to Medellin was delayed but the crew was not informing the passengers of ETA. They initially stated the flight was cancelled, then said the flight was delayed waiting on the crew, then they said we had no captain. Therefore, it was a messed at the gate and people were really upset. The boarding crew didn't even know how to organize people into lines. Some people were given different flights and others were told to wait. Unbelievable"
Cons: "Not enough legs room for someone who is 6.2 ft (1.88M). Boarding was so long and and disorganized The counter at the gate can not sell yu an upgrade ticket or the possibility to switch seat"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Seats were comfortable and well spaced. Each seat had an individual entertainment screen. Served juice and coffee on a one hour flight! Check in was easy and cabin crew friendly and professional. We will definitely fly Avianca again."
Cons: "Booked through Flight Network which was a disaster! We will never book a flight through them again."
Pros: "crew was very charming"
Cons: "my girl coulndt fly guys , avianca told them that theres not ticket appear under her name so i have to bougth amother ticket... Please contact me at 8625718252"
Pros: "Todo me gustó"
Pros: "First time with avianca. Surprisingly modern and comfortable plane.efficient service. Decent baggage allowance. Took a star off because flight was delayed a bit(1/2 hour) but otherwise very pleased"
Pros: "I sat by the window, it was a nice newer plane, and I thought the pilot did an excellent job landing. I have always loved flying with Avianca. Probably the best company to fly with!"
Cons: "They didn't give out earphones in order to watch something or listen to music."
Pros: "Speed of boarding and friendly crew"
Pros: "Non stop flights"
Cons: "Prices are expensive"

Two hours delay

Wheelchair assistance was horrible in Detroit. When told, after check-in, to go to the access area, we were informed we were third in line. The 2 in front had been waiting over half an hour. We thought there would miss our flight if we waited. So that did not happen. On return, there was absolutely no assistance, or of its prospects whatsoever. If you need special assistance, forget Delta. .

The constant droning on and on about masks is tiring. STOP!

Cons: "Turn on the lights before landing graduallyb- noone likes bright fast - too nasty;"
Pros: "Baggage handlers extremely fast"
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. The gate agent was extremely rude - was shocked she was representing Delta. There was police on board arresting two passengers and crew was not saying anything."

Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Seats won’t stay reclined."
Cons: "Slight delay of flight"
Cons: "1. Board the plane from back to front! It is ridiculous the way it is currently done. 2. Get people to announce boarding who speak CLEAR English. 3. Further limit carry-on luggage."
Pros: "I like how friendly the crew was"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour and we had a connecting flight IN ATL that we had to get to in :30 minutes. By the time we got off the plane we had :15 minutes to get to our connecting flight. We barely made it. They were about to close the door on us. Didnt really appreciate that."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "Surrounded by screaming kids, screaming adults and no AC"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Never on time"
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "There was an issue when taxing to the runway and we had to be towed back for repairs. The problem was as we waited there was no AC for too long. The staff was also very unfriendly. 2 times they hit my seat with their cart. I was just not a great experience"
Pros: "On time take off."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Going by and come Ming back Atlanta check in desk was the rudest Laziest most disrespectful emoyees I have ever came across . Check in person played on her phone and didn’t even look at you when asking what seat was I assigned . Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."
Pros: "I like service"
Pros: "crew was professional and seats werre comfortable. flight departed late but arrived on time."
Cons: "nothing to say."
Cons: "That's the flight is clean"
Cons: "You had me check my hand luggage with expensive items that did not arrive."
Pros: "New plane with knight entertainment screens at all seats!"
Cons: "Delayed, bit crew was friendly and efficient!"
Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Early morning flights .. the People are not aware and awake"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "It was smooth sailing all the way"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me thinking my space was his space too"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Cons: "Was required to gate check my luggage through to baggage claim."
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and I really enjoyed having multiple USB ports to keep my devices charged."
Pros: "Plenty of give on seat belt, just enough leg room for my 6' frame. No one was seated in the middle seat!"
Cons: "I was on the way to the airport when I was notified of the 1st delay. I am sure Delta knew there were issues already and should have let me know earlier in the day. The delays kept increasing. We were offered snacks at the gate. That is it. No free drinks on the plane, no free premium movies. Very bad customer service. More explanations were needed as to the cause of the delay."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and uneventful, comfort plus seat was comfy and sky priority lines were nice perk."
Cons: "No food / no entertainment at all. Not that I cared. Ran out of overhead compartment space fast."
Cons: "I could not print my boarding pass, get it on email, get it at the airport. A waste of their time and mine. And makes no sense. It is some new policy of Delta. Not good"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. We had a two hour delay on the ground due to thunderstorms, but the pilot kept us informed and the flight attendants answered any questions and helped with everything. The pilot even walked down the isle asking people if they had any questions."
Cons: "We booked our tickets through American Express over 3 months before the flight. Delta has a new policy that these tickets are not allowed to have certain privileges that tickets purchased on their own site have. Unbeknown to us, one of these is the ability to select your seat. On the ride from CVG to FLL we were assigned seats in the back of the plane, but at least we were next to each other. On the way back, we were not assigned a seat at all. We arrived to the airport almost 4 hours before the flight and were still not assigned a seat and were told we would have to speak to the gate agent. Even we when spoke to the gate agent, they still did not have a seat. It was not until we had already started the boarding process that they called us up and told us that we were going to be sitting 5 rows apart, both in a middle seat."
Pros: "Smooth ride. Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "My tv monitor wasn't working. And they brought out cups of water with cookies like 30 minutes before we landed."
Pros: "on time and organized"
Cons: "food wouldn't be enough even for a two year old"
Pros: "on board crew was excellent. Seats and leg room made the trip exceptionally comfortable"
Cons: "Didn't like that I could not get my boarding ticket on line and instead had to get to the airport earlier in order to print it at the kiosk. The person at the boarding gate was not friendly but did do his job efficiently"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "They tend to be very sensationalist with the people sitting on the exit road. It would be nice to have some food for the people that are vegetarian, something; just don’t ignore them and continue walking. This happened in both flights. Not even chips. Nothing."
Pros: "crew was excellent as ell as the counter personal"
Pros: "Onntime and very goid service"
Cons: "Panamá boarding room"
Pros: "Average."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "I loved the quick flavor flight and the staff was very kind!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment options. Also layover was too long, but this is not their fault, all flights were on time"
Pros: "On time, the service"
Pros: "Excellent airline. Best to connect the America's."
Cons: "The food is not goof"
Pros: "There is nothing to like because this flight did not happen."
Cons: "Please see my previous review for my updated itinerary. This Panama City --> Cartagena flight did not happen and instead I was routed to Chicago--> Newark --> Bogota --> Cartagena. The last flight was operated by Avianca. DUE TO the fact that my very last, 55-minute, domestic flight in Colombia was operated by Avianca, it was to my very unpleasant surprise that United decided they were not going to be responsible for the bag which was left behind IN CHICAGO. I emphasize it's in Chicago, because that would not fall under Avianca's responsibility but rather United. I've had an absolutely awful time trying to get in touch with United and Avianca customer service, I've received both conflicting and incorrect/untrue information from both parties, and it's been 4 days now that instead of enjoying my family vacation I've been trying to sort this mess out with my missing luggage. DISASTROUS"
Pros: "Chairs"
Cons: "I asked for vegetarian meals & didn't get it. I asked for seats not on the wing and got the wings all my flights. Not happy, bad service"
Pros: "The information provided prior to the flight and online booking experience."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants Rude gate / entry attendants No tvs in the seats. I am vegetarian and was not given a vegetarian option! Very Inconsiderate of this airline."
Cons: "please email me where i can reply"
Pros: "I liked 2 free checked bags. I liked that the flight was uneventful and on time."
Cons: "The staff while professional seems very busy and preoccupied. This airline has a small presense in Ft. Lauderdale and didn’t open for check in for several hours after I arrived. The kioks were not operational. My husband was flying in from Tucson on American Airlines and his flight was delayed. He was to join us on our international flight home. I tried to alert the staff well in advance that he would be arriving late but would be there in time to actually get on the flight. The staff was not helpful with this matter at all. They did nothing to accomodate these special circumstances that were beyond our control. Even finding a staff member that was available for me to talk to was a challenge. My husband’s flight arrived at the airport an hour before takeoff but nothing was done to try to get him on our flight home even though I had explained the problem 2 hours before that. As a result, he was not able to travel home with us on Copa and had to buy a ticket home on JetBlue. We will not choose Copa again."
Pros: "Everyone super welcoming and kind"
Cons: "Our flights were delayed and on top of that, we had to run to reach the gate (which was changed without any notice)"
Cons: "Terrible"
Pros: "Excelente"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June with a window seat. When I got to Copa check in they told me I didn’t have an assigned seat (and I got there very early) and that she couldn’t help me get a seat assignment until I got to the gate. Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."
Pros: "Crew dedication"
Cons: "Cramped seating 5E"
Cons: "No private enterteinment"
Pros: "Smooth and on time. Great personnel."
Cons: "Plane has no entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing! The plane had electrical problems. Had to sit on the tarmac for close to an hour."
Pros: "Delicious food, very tasty"
Cons: "Seats did not recline as they should in business class nor foot leg rest lift as it should. Not to business class standards"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "the crew wAS very nice, the plane was very clean"
Cons: "the only nice thing to say about the food is that it was so bad i was happy there was so little and i didn't have to waste much. i went through hopes, including a fifteen minute phone call, to get the seat i wanted only to be assigned an awful seat in the back. one movie on a seven hour flight. lots of promos though. it is not a very good airline."
Pros: "La puntualidad para abordar y la llegada a mi destino, buen avión."
Cons: "No nos facilitaron audífonos, la comida no fue muy buena y no encontré espacio para mi equipaje de mano, la política de la aerolínea debería ser que el pasajero pueda subir con un equipaje de mano o una mochila, ya que suben con ambas, mas fundas de compras y ocupan todos los espacios para el equipaje de mano."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "We were assigned the last row and were separated again."
Pros: "There’s a glitch on this page that is not allowing me to select 5 stars for my overall rating but everything was FABULOUS! Sweet attentive sharp staff. Would definitely travel with Copa again."
Pros: "excelente!!!..gracias mejor no hay!!."
Pros: "Easy layover in Panama, Flight from Panama to Cartagena was short and sweet, Friendly staff."
Pros: "The flights were on time even for a late in the day flight. The organization was good and everything went well The sandwich served on the quick 1 hour long flight was an unexpected nicety that would not have happened on a discounted airline. The bags arrived with me at my destination. Like a well practiced production, I did not see the behind the scene work but in the end everything worked together to make a very nice experience."
Pros: "Food was plenty"
Pros: "I love Copa. I fly between PTY and LAX every 6 months and don't even think of booking with another airline. The men and women that work for Copa are always friendly and do their best to help. And you are always on time!"
Cons: "I found it very disconcerting that the custom forms were not given out before final approach,it felt very rushed."
Pros: "The staff was friendly, they helped me to change seats really quick, all the flights were on time, the boarding process was great, the whole process was really good! Thank you!"
Pros: "La variedad de bebidas, puntualidad de las salidas, rápido abordaje"
Cons: "El snack"
Pros: "No delays, quick flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "They could have better snacks."
Pros: "My luggage got lost with my medication in it. I am diabetic type 2"
Cons: "The airline staff has ZERO customer service skills. They treated me very poorly every time I asked them about my luggage. I have NEVER been treated this way while traveling -taking into consideration that I travel for work-"
Pros: "Very friendly, courteous and professional service"
Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was cramped no space on airplane shoulder to shoulder with the person next to you"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cabin was hot, could not sleep, no lounge in LA and very long waiting lines at check in"
