Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Middle seat was empty"
Pros: "It was nice that the plane was not packed full."
Cons: "Box water instead of water bottles. The seat wasn’t very comfortable since it wouldn’t recline."
Cons: "Extremely frustrated. Upon booking my ticket, I was told it wouldn’t be a full flight. At no point did u receive any information alerting me that it was going to be a full flight. I was extremely uncomfortable due to COVID."
Pros: "Everyone was perfect..!!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed almost an hour due to inclement weather in the originating city. The Delta personnel explained the situation and did all they could considering the circumstances."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."
Pros: "Good Flight"
Cons: "We ordered special meal, and it was even confirmed in the boarding pass but it was never delivered on board.... attendant said they did not get any special meal"
Cons: "delays, delays yuck"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were not head flaps on the seat. The person seated next to me overflowed into my seat making it uncomfortably warm even with the air vent fully open. Was in & out of sleep during a red eye flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "flight was diverted an hour away for refueling because of weather over SLC. But SLC opened before we even landed at Grand Junction, CO. I had 8 mins to run between concourses to catch the next flight. My bags didn’t make the flight and have perishable food items. But it is what it is."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight not cancelled"
Pros: "Clean new plane. Very nice"
Pros: "Early warning about little overhead compartment baggage space. Short flight made shorter in air."
Cons: "No enough carry on baggage space"
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous."

Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Pros: "left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "no legroom even in first class."
Pros: "Movies, baggage price, snacks, friendly! And check carry on when full fir free"
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Pros: "Breakfast was quite good, rest of the food was maximum average like on the other Delta flights I flew on this travel."
Cons: "The seats in business class are horrible in flat bed mode. The crew did not pay much attention, was quite bored, not well organized, service was less than average. They forgot the coffee for breakfast although they had only to care for 8 people."
Cons: "They ran out of blankets, earphones on the flight"
Cons: "No dairy free options!"
Pros: "Not too bad once we got on the plane"
Cons: "They make up this lame excuse about a slight delay on the plane arriving and having no flight attendants to get on the plane on time. This delayed our flight by two hours. They need to staff their flights !"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, especially when checking in"
Cons: "Flight was late to arrive and late to depart. Not many passengers but no service."
Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."
Pros: "Friendly attitudes"
Pros: "The flight entertainment and crew were great. They had a lot of the latest movies available to watch, though I'm not sure you'd be able to watch if you didn't have your own headphones (I did). The crew were friendly and helpful. I got a cold cup of coffee when it should have been hot, and they corrected it immediately."
Cons: "They charge you for everything: sitting in an aisle or window seat ($15); checking one piece of luggage ($25); for food, even on a five hour flight, save for complementary snacks like a granola bar or pretzels. I paid $11 for a tiny sandwich (it fit in the palm of my already small hands). I will definitely get good at the airport next time. It may be just as expensive, but at least it will be filling."
Pros: "Got in 1/2 hour early"
Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Pros: "Every flight was efficiently set for boarding. Flights arrived a little early both times. Great on-board crew!"
Pros: "Service, arrangement, duration, convenience , organized flight."
Cons: "I like everything about it. Thank you."
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, good selection of snacks, excellent seat and leg room."
Cons: "Lavatory was unusually smelly no charging port"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."
Pros: "When I was finally able to get on a later flight this was a very good one"
Cons: "The cancellation of original flight was stressful as I had a wedding to attend and the long delay and subsequent cancellation of original flight prevented me from it. Further, I was forced to get local transport after arrival in FLL, since I missed my ride altogether."
Pros: "The quick boarding"
Cons: "The food still not good, even that is a short flight Copa should choose another kind of plane because the Embraiber is a very small plane for comfort"
Cons: "Boarding lines are awful"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"

Cons: "One bathroom had a faulty toilet. The other had a door that would not lock. Some seat back pockets were in bad shape."
Pros: "puntual with great service"
Pros: "The flight was not full so I had the row to myself and could stretch my legs. Overall, though, there was good legroom and the seat was generously sized."
Cons: "Would have like an adjustable headrest so I could sleep more easily."
Pros: "On time. Short layover"
Cons: "I didn't know that if you are sitting in rear section and there is a line to the bathroom, you aren't allowed to use the one in front, even if there is no line"
Pros: "Old plane with no technology. Flight attendants, 2 males, very unorganized and made you feel they were working at a stadium seling sandwiches. The lady besides me was travelling with all her family, a big group, and by mistake it seems that they ordered 2 gluten free meals. They needed only one. The attendant refused tongive the other lady a normal sandwich!!! He said, yoynare created an issue, now, you have to wait until we finish the service and we will see waht we can do ( we were on the row 6!!!) ant the end she accepted the gluten free because ahe was hungry. Unbelievable answer and zero empathy tonsolve the situation."
Cons: "The quality of service provided by your employees. You really need to work on trainig. Similar issues happened in the second flight. The attitude of Copa employees has been going down the hill in the las year or so."

Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"
Cons: "The crew, and the plane is very old not fit, for a such,long flight"
Pros: "Copa got me a seat on a flight with another airline.."
Cons: "My flight was canelled."
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."

Pros: "Everything! Omg and the food was so great! Awesome airline!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was variety for entertainment! There had great movies, new ones, not all airlines focus on that. Another thing was the food and drinks that the offered. They really kept passengers happy."
Pros: "When they booked me on another airline after making me wait 36 hours and finally admitting it was their mistake they inadvertently cancelled my reservation."
Cons: "They intolerant, unprofessional, they overbook flights and blame the passenger, they don't help you when this happens, they cancelled my booking and tried to blame me, they act as if they have a right to treat a customer like garbage. Don't EVER book a flight with this company. If you do you are taking a huge risk."

Pros: "Everyone was extremely kind and helpful!"
Pros: "On time..."

Cons: "Not that much"
Pros: "nice new appearing lane"
Cons: "Food was fair, but at least there was a meal."
Pros: "En líneas generales Copa es una línea buena no excelente, ofrece cierta calidad de servicio."
Cons: "Lo que No me conviene de viajar en Copa airlines, es el poco peso permitido en el equipaje. La situación en Venezuela actualmente nos ha llevado (lamentablemente) a traer vivieres y otra serie de productos por necesidad y tuve que pagar sobrepeso. En ese sentido me conviene viajar con una línea que permita mas peso por cada valija aún cuando sacrifique la calidad del servicio. El personal en este vuelo de Miami a Panamá fué poco atento. Solicité una cobija porque tenía frío y no había."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Pros: "The airline has an excellent boarding process and crew. Everything right on time. I arrived the check-in desk after boarding had commenced but the staff did everything to still get me on the flight including sending someone to retrieve me from the very long security queue. I did make the flight. Great great people."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "No access to lounge for business class..."
Pros: "Nothing at all!! Rubbish total rubbish"
Cons: "Food was absolutely abominable, service was slow, the cabin was way too hot and the lounge and connection in Panama was a dissapointment"
Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy, repeated same commercials"
Cons: "Plane was late and missed connection."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive and cordial."
Cons: "United Airlines has really deteriorated. Paid entertainment for an international flight is really nickle-and-diming it, especially since it was direct tv which is only available over the continental US!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight"
Cons: "Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "FAT to LAX not one word from the flight deck explaining the delay in our delayed pushback and take off"
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "bad web site lost luggage stolen items from luggage no option to wrap my luggage in plastic unfriendly staff late flight and take off"
Pros: "People who help me with my 87 year old mother we extremely thoughtful."
Cons: "I did not like having to exit plane on the tarmac. It was difficult for my 87 year old mother, and the if the weather had been bad this would have been very unpleasant and extremely difficult for everyone!"
Pros: "Staff at Fresno Airport was helpful and informative."
Cons: "A six hour delay caused us to rent a car to drive from Fresno to LA. Once we were on our way and after 3 hours or so, the delay was reduced so that we theoretically could have made connections - but it was too late. We made it driving - but we had to eat the cost of the car rental."
Cons: "A 5+hr flight and a bag of pretzels for a snack? Cheap! Unfriendly staff at Panama airport"
Pros: "Heavy Hispanic woman got ill and I was really worried she might pass away because she kept laying forward asleep or passed out on the back of the seat in front of her. Finally they found a doctor who was bilingual and he took great care of her. So bravo for that UA!"
Cons: "Heavy Hispanic woman got ill and I was really worried she might pass away because she kept laying forward asleep or passed out on the back of the seat in front of her. Finally they found a doctor who was bilingual and he took great care of her. So bravo for that UA!"
Cons: "Was not informed that there was a required 30 minute check in and was given incorrect information about what time the airport opened. Causing us to miss our flight and purchase new tickets at an extra $620, whereas I believe it should have been a free adjustment. I will never use united or kayak again."
Pros: "They canceled the flight"
Pros: "How pleasant everyone was"
Cons: "I did not like that there was no food. Long flights are supposed to give some, at least a small sandwich."
Pros: "We were late leaving Fresno we sat on the runway for 40 minutes and 100° we left Fresno to Denver so the plane from Denver had to wait for us"
Cons: "El peor servicio que he recibido"
Pros: "The Fresno staff was incredible, patient, and very helpful. Take-off and landing was super smooth."
Cons: "There was no food, only a glass of water. The steward was very kind though. The layover at LAX seemed unrealistic. When I called ahead of time about it, a United employee told me it was "do-able". We barely made it, even with riding on the skycap's cart. If I hadn't had that cart ride, I would definitely have missed it. Reasonable layovers would be more helpful."
Cons: "Staff was rude and not helpful at all. Delayed over 3 hours waiting on crew coming in on another plane. Short staffed."
Cons: "Poor Steward. Very unfriendly"
Pros: "Very friendly hostesses and Avery welcoming feel"
Cons: "paid entertainment"

Cons: "nothing, likes everything quick flight drinks pretty stewardesses, all my airline dreams fulfilled"
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you downloaded an app in advance, and then, for people who had, only over USA, and after you pay for united wifi. That's poor"
Cons: "The pilots were late which cost us our departure so that we ran into restrictions based on weather. Thus we missed our connection in Panama City. United should ensure pilots are on time."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. I wont bother letting you know how you ruined my day. Youre turning air travel a joke. The only thing mastered by you is security procedures. In the name of 20+ party we were, united is the worst ever and next time we will pay extra for a decent airline."
Pros: "great staff"
Pros: "The plane waited for all of the lint writing luggage to be delivered which was helpful for me because mine was part of that"

Cons: "Had to rebook."
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Cons: "Firsr of all it was delay for almost 2 hr, on the plane it was 3 woman acting like a street girl, and the food car was empty out of 10 item it was only 2. So i did not eat on a 5 hr flight."
Cons: "When i came back to my country everything was ok until i got my credit details and i saw that your receptionist stole money from my card. I should have pay for an exstra suitcase 60 dollars so i gave the receptionist my credit card. Yesterday I got my credit details i saw an extra charge of 400 hundred dollars !!! I am so mad and im waiting for you to cancel it and recompense. I hope it will be soon before i involve a layer and require you. My phone number is +97224518838."
