Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing, super attendant and sweet despite the circumstances. The food was good at the comfort was awesome"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over two hours. It basically ruined all of my plans for the rest of the day. It they should’ve just put us on another plane to save us time because the maintenance took so long"

Cons: "No online seat assignment ... had to switch seats with other people on the plane."

Pros: "Serve"
Cons: "No Free Meal"

Pros: "One of the crew members handled a medical emergency calmly and professionally. Wish the rest of the crew was as graceful and professional"
Cons: "The plane was dirty when we boarded, aisles and chairs not cleaned. Not all crew members were knowledgeable about wi-if option and food/drink offerings"

Pros: "Alaska is great don’t become united or American"

Pros: "My knees didn’t hit seat in front of me"

Pros: "We arrived 30 minutes early"
Cons: "No lunch"

Pros: "I splurged and purchased the first class upgrade as i am tall and it was a very long flight. Loved the legroom and service i received."
Cons: "Went through the boarding process and then we all waited in the line outside the plane for some time. They obviously were not ready to board the plane which was difficult for some of the elderly now standing in line. I had a planned dinner in sacramento which was a main reason i took this long layover and due to leaving 2 hours late i missed the dinner which had to be canceled. This was very important to me. The 75$ discount given to me on a future flight is not going to replace the time off work and the dinner which will now have to wait for anither trip to the mainland."

Pros: "Alaska has a great crew and aircradt!"
Cons: "No dislikes."

Cons: "Found the attendants not very friendly and snappy."

Pros: "Extremely competent and professional attendants who gave us some additional perks."
Cons: "Food was meh..."

Pros: "I love Alaska Airlines!! They are always so nice and very accommodating. I travel with my dog and they are great. The only airline I fly with my dog."
Cons: "The new planes on Alaska don’t have enough air flow coming out of the vent above the seat"

Cons: "Seats need more padding."

Pros: "On time service"

Pros: "Crew and boarding process"
Cons: "No international choice in entertainment and food"

Pros: "Efficient and competent. One of the better airlines out there."

Pros: "Attentive, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "0"

Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."

Pros: "Kindness and professionalism of crew. Captain alerted us when we were heading into some turbulence and made it seem not so severe."
Cons: "One of my suitcases got dented and I lost a wheel and wheel base from bottom of my suitcase. I have never had that happen on an Alaskan Airlines flight in my 32 years flying on ALASKA Airlines. But the ALASKA Airlines Customer Service desk gave me a brand new suitcase. The only inconvenience was I had to empty all my belongings from damaged suitcase and transfer them to the new one at the airport."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "seats could have been a little more comfortable"

Pros: "The pilot was very good...he landed in Bellingham in a rain storm that really rocked the plane. Great job!"

Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"

Cons: "Asked fort blanket. Told they were only available for First Class passengers"

Cons: "The air hostess made a big deal about using the restrooms on the front side of the plane by the cockpit even though she knew the food trolley was blocking the way to the restrooms on the rear end. They even made announcements about not standing in queue for the restrooms (note- there was no queue, I was waiting for my mother to find her back to the seat). Less than average hospitality."

Pros: "Since we were delayed, the crew gave some complimentary refreshments"
Cons: "We were delayed, the boarding was ridiculous since half the flight boarded with "priority" and then another 1/4 boarded for their elite and first class, so the rest of us in the back had nowhere to put our things. My husband and I were separated even though I had picked my seats months prior. No seatback entertainment whatsoever for a 6 hour flight. I am disappointed--I hold Alaska to a much higher standard based on past experience."

Pros: "The 52 year old airline assistant, who looks about 32 was very nice to us and understanding when she knew we had so much travel ahead of us. She was very nice."
Cons: "So uncomfortable. We had a 25 hour traveling day ahead of us and needed some sleep. It's just soooo uncomfortable and squished. It's painful to sit for long periods of time, let alone try to get some sleep. The girl in front of me adjusted in her seat and totally smacked me in the head when I was trying to lay my head on the table to give my poor back a break. Babies, a lot of babies, and dogs, not good for trying to catch some z's either."

Cons: "The planes, both ways, was filthy."

Pros: "The people doing the boarding/checkin were so "aloha" and everything went so smooth all the way through. Loved it!"

Pros: "Ticket agent kindly arranged for us to sit together - after we had been assigned seats apart from one another."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, disorganized and chaotic. Flight crew seemed to be overwhelmed and scattered. Ran out of hot meal about halfway through aircraft. When I expressed my disappointment, the F.A. said that there were a lot of wrestlers on board and they got all the food. I commented that it was poor planning and the FA stated that he didn't think anything would please me. He was argumentative and rude, IMO. He could have handled it better, eg: "So sorry. Out of our control, etc." To say that the food went to the wrestlers, and attitude gave me and those around me, the impression that he really didn't give a damn. Customer service training would be a good idea."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, upgrades to plane made it average--USB ports, outlets, etc. Move selection on rentals was average at best."

Pros: "I liked the direct flight."
Cons: "We returned to Sacramento, and my bag was "lost". The bag attendant suggested it was hung up on the belt. Our neighbors had to circle the airport while we dealt with her. We went home without my bag. Thirty minutes after we were home, the bag attendant called and said they had my bag. We returned to the airport to pick it up because they could/would not guarantee that it would be delivered safely. The attendant said that it was there on another belt. NOT, because I actually checked before we left. Then, she didn't want to give us the Measly $50 voucher. Ugh, still upset a week later."

Pros: "Donny was the best crew member. Everyone was very nice and very attentive. Restroom was very clean and the whole plane was very well maintained."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "It was a very long flight, but no meal or entertainment was provided. On other airlines I've flown in the past, these things were included on international flights."

Pros: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets available. Not enough communication about turbulence."

Pros: "I liked getting off the airplane."
Cons: "Look every one experiances problems. It comes in the form of weather, mechanical or security issues that disrupt a flight in the form of delays. There is no surprise when this occurs. So when a three hour delay is thrust upon you and you have already given up your carry on and your assigned seats perhaps the recovery should have been less of a surprise. One pilot announcement, and offer of free loyalty points falls so short. No comp eat or drink coupons on the ground. Still got billed for food and wifi. Drinks were offered but ofcourse they ran out before the center of the AC was served. The recovery happens at the moment not in the next few days you will recieve an email with miles. Still haven't gotten any email after a week. I will fly anybody other then Alaska."

Pros: "Staff was excellent. They were courteous, professional and inviting."
Cons: "Even though I booked all three fares together, we were not given the seats I selected online nor were we even seated together."

Cons: "5 hrs in the plane. No food, not even a little bag of snack!!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1h, you had to pay for food and entertainment for a 5h flight"

Pros: "Most everything besides them seats being to close in proximity."
Cons: "That they seats weren't wide enough."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I they had negetive stars I would use them. From Jessica at check-in in Maui to the flight attendants. Alaska air needs to retrain their employees on customer service. I'm not sure if something was going on or the employees don't like their jobs but what's horrible experience."

Pros: "Built in USB chargers, friendly flight attendants, good service, good food options. One of my favorite airlines"

Pros: "I made multiple requests for proper seating for my mother Flights going and coming, the crew tried to make up for incorrect seating of a sverely handicapped walker."
Cons: "Bad handicapped service, until too late"

Cons: "Children were kicking my seat the entire red eye. I think a meal should be free if you are traveling all the way from Maui to Philadelphia"

Pros: "The Alaska airlines people are very pleasant and helpful, I always fly Alaska when I travel to Hawaii. They seem to get there earlier than scheduled , I like that!"

Cons: "The movie players had no power so it took a while for the crew to get them to us."

Pros: "Service was Horrible"
Cons: "Not a friendly airline at all. Book with someone else."

Pros: "Crew were very nice and helpful. They projected that they really enjoy their job and that made it a pleasant trip. We arrived early at our destination and great landing!"
Cons: "Food is okay and not much. The selection for those who want to eat healthier or have more is pretty limited. However, I haven't flown with any better choices on other airlines so hopefully the choices will improve."

Pros: "Smooth travels with reasonable rates."

Pros: "I traveled with my 86-yr-old mother and asked for a wheelchair. Except for when we got back to Detroit, a chair was there along with courteous, compassionate personnel who were waiting for her to make sure she got where she needed to go. Very nice about letting us board early so we could get situated. Also, one flight attendant noticed that the air conditioning was cooler than normal and saw that my mom was covering her head with a jacket. She asked the flight crew to turn it down and within minutes we noticed a big difference. Thank you."
Cons: "If you are taller than 5'2" and flying coach, be prepared to be completely uncomfortable. There is little leg space. Don't drop anything either...not enough head room to bend over to retrieve an object. Sorry about leaving a napkin and food wrappers, but I couldn't pick them up. Wi-fi wasn't working from Seattle to DTW. Start charging for carry-ons and you'll be just like Spirit and Frontier, but a lot pricier."

Cons: "Fue un avión no adaptado a nuestros tiempos, sin entretenimiento a bordo, ni siquiera tenía para conectar el celular. Un servicio low cost."

Cons: "3 cancel flights"

Pros: "Los aviones cómodos, con buen espacio para estirar las piernas. A pesar de ser un vuelo de 2 horas te dan comida, algo que las demás no hacen."
Cons: "Podrían mejorar el sabor de la comida que sirven, ya que no es de las mejores."

Cons: "At the time of boarding the crew members started going by group. This only lasted 1 min. Everybody started getting in a line without regarding group or any type of particular order. The crew members did mind and just kept boarding people. Very poor management and lack of authority."

Pros: "Food. Blankets. No delays."

Pros: "I liked that the crew where nice and congratulate the mountain bike team of Costa Rica who had won second place in the panamerican games"
Cons: "I push the "call the stewart" bottom and they never came to me.."

My luggage also did not follow so I have no toiletries or changes of clothes etc. I am tried and hungry and very inconvenienced!! I was hoping for a free plane ticket? This trip was stressful and no idea when my luggage will b found"

Pros: "The trip was on time, plane was clean, crew was nice, duty free is excellent"

Cons: "Late for no reason. Boarded late, arrived late"

Pros: "Nice crew"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "Delayed on the runway for an hour after a delay in the airport. My friend missed his connection because of the delay and was still forced to pay his own hotel."

Cons: "The crew allowed a drunk man to take the plane. It was a terrible experience to travel next to him. Also, the gate for taking the flight change with no previous notification. I realized of this a few minutes before taking the flight."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Staff help us tho resolve some troubles with wrong name on check in."
Cons: "Wrong name in check in on line"

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "We did not know our ticket-price included breakfast. However, the flight had no vegetarian option, so we passed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2times was cancelled and I have to Stay 2 nights in Bogota"

Pros: "The entertainment on board was amazing. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "The plane was extremely dirty. I couldn't believe it. First time boarding a plane to find that there was trash all around my seat and tucked in the front pocket. Doodles with a pen on the tray table, sticky arm rest, and it looked like the other seats around us were almost in the same shape. I would've rather waited an extra 15 minutes before boarding the plane for it to be clean. I think that was really poor on their part."

Pros: "I am impressed! I will be booking through Avianca again!"

Pros: "Being moved to a copa fligth"
Cons: "They had us 3hours con the plain and after that it was cancelled. Several people lost a full day of work no responsability from Avianca."

Cons: "the food"

Pros: "Got lucky with a free upgrade to 1st class and the crew always helpful."
Cons: "Tried to add an additional bag for 50 to 70 Lbs and website said $50 USD and they wanted to charge $100 USD for some reason. end up removing stuff from the bag to not get charge an extra $60 USD"

Pros: "Free Drinks and Food."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding"

Cons: "Really bad orange juice. Blankets were gone, they claimed to run out of them. Didn't got the Costa Rica customs papers."

Pros: "Crew was nice and individual tv screens were great! Free wine."
Cons: "God tasted like cardboard."

Cons: "Never happened"

Pros: "Personal TV's on flight from NYC to San Salvador"
Cons: "Boarding in San Salvador was confusing because there were two flights boarding at the same gate at the same time. The screen for our flight did not indicate that the flight was boarding, so we thought only the other flight was boarding. We asked three different Avianca employees where and when our flight was boarding. All three gave different answers, none of which were correct. Luckily, we were able to figure out on our own where to go in time to catch the flight."

Pros: "The complimentary blankets and pillows"
Cons: "The crew constantly putting our window shades up"

Cons: "2 and a half hours of company owned delay. Very little explanation in situ."

Pros: "the wind was high on the landing into costa rica but the pilot made a smooth landing"

Pros: "All was amazing"

Pros: "The attention I received."
Cons: "The food."

Cons: "The food was disgusting! I had not eaten for several hours and was looking forward to having nice snack as I began the first part of my three flight journey; however, the "croissant" with cheese they gave me tasted horrible. By nature, I am not a picky eater but I could not finish my snack. I realize this was merely an hour-long flight from Guatemala City to San Jose, but why not just serve peanuts like every other airline."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Food was average"

Cons: "The social distancing, the cdc is recommending 6 ft but there are passengers directly behind and in grinning us and only one passenger seat empty between 2 people. With covid on the rise, how are you actually doing your party to take care of your customers."

Pros: "When I asked for a seat change the crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "With covid in Seattle I was placed next to a restroom. I did not see any bathroom sanitation occurring during the flight, and no sanitizer available anywhere."

Cons: "Space on airplanes"

Pros: "Wonderful hospitality, excellent service!! Clean, well thought meal service."
Cons: "Hoping that this will continue!!"

Pros: "Good crew, my seat did NOT recline."
Cons: "Plane was somewhat crowded."

Pros: "I was surprised that we received two meals and constant drinks in economy. Delta definitely has better hospitality than American."
Cons: "The seats were really tight between the rows. The space between the seats on the same row were typical."

Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."

Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Getting to Venice on time. Our late arrival cost me a 90 euro shutle."

Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."

Pros: "On time flight, bag made it, great price, can’t complain."
Cons: "Seat pretty tight for an average size adult man. No inflight phone charger."

Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"

Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."

Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."

Pros: "Check in process & text updates were awesome!"
Cons: "My flight to PDX was quite bumpy so food and beverage service were impacted, which I totally understand. However, the fact that I was not served at all, does not sit well with me! They had to stop service with only a few rows left to go due to turbulence but rather it just being a delay in service, the flight attendants never came back to check on the customers they hadn’t served even when the seat belt lights turned off. I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"

Pros: "i likes that drinks were free"
Cons: "i shouldn’t have to pay for headphones"

Pros: "The crew was fine, flight was completely full and they were very prompt in their service. The power outlets didn’t work. The lights were on, but when I plugged in they didn’t charge."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Seats very close together for a flight that lasts over 5 hours."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and we made up plenty of time when we were only 15 mins late for take off."
Cons: "Baggage broke our baby stroller. Banged up, heavy deep scratches, and won’t lock properly nor will it release the brake phone portly where one wheel won’t unlock without much luck. Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."

Pros: "The crew are very nice on both flights and they were very courteous the seats.T"
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable."

Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."

Pros: "Great comfortable flight"

Pros: "Everything was perfect."

Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and a half"

Cons: "Seats diddn't recline - often ignored by flight crew."

Pros: "Everything was fine other then seating assignment"
Cons: "I was traveling with wife but was not able to seat with her. I was stuck in the middle of 2 of the worlds biggest plus sized people. Armrest was a constant struggle. Willing to pay more next time to avoid hassle."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "no bed"

Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."
Cons: "Signage is terrible. Delta sign out side is obscured as and too small. Construction is no excuse for the confusion. Delta is not readable on the overhead signs and airport is too dark at night. Everything is hard to find."

Pros: "1000s of movies and shows to watch. Plenty of overhead bin storage. Alcohol beverage service included. Crew was great."
Cons: "Baked chicken dinner was gross."

Pros: "We had terrible turbulence for probably 4 of the nearly 5 hour flight. The turbulence were the Pitts, but the plane, amenities, staff and amenities were top nothcj! Highly recommende Delta."
Cons: "Bad turbulence"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."

Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."

Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."

Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down."

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"

Pros: "The process was very quick and easy, from after security the process was smooth and fast."
Cons: "The gate that I was assigned to was a little overcrowded but I believe it could be because of the construction that is happening in the area. Also the security process was a little long."

Pros: "Delta is the best airline to use because they care about you as a customer. They will do everything they can to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. I would not recommend any other airline to use but DELTA !!"
Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."

Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"

Pros: "I liked everything."

Pros: "Staff as always was very attentive and courteous. The board process proceeded smoothly and we were able to depart a few minutes early."
Cons: "One attendant did display a slight level of un-professionalism after spilling a drink on my mom and not apologizing. I chalk it up to her embarrassment and she probably just forgot."

Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."

Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."

Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."

Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."

Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."

Pros: "1st class service was excellent."
Cons: "The food in 1st class does not compare to some competitor airlines. the leather seats do not breath and can sometimes get hot."

Cons: "To be fair the flight from Honolulu to Lihue was on Hawaiian Air, not Delta per se. The crew was rude, but in the terminal and on board. Didn't really rate food and entrainment because of the flight length."

Pros: "Same as previous flight."

Pros: "Excellent!!!"

Cons: "Food quality"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."

Cons: "Venía de Mexico a Panamá y el vuelo se retrasó. Cuando fui a abordar el vuelo a Costa Rica habian cambiado la sala de abordaje y por poco me deja el vuelo. Quizá lo hubieran anunciado en el vuelo que venia de México me hubiera ahorrado tiempo y carreras."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."

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."

Pros: "Now you are giving away free muffins instead of insulting with a granola bar....THANK YOU FOR LISTENING"
Cons: "HOW CAN YOU NOT OFFER COFFEE ON AN AM FLIGHT??? THAT's CRAZY!!!"

Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"

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!"

Pros: "Super nice crew! Gave us food even though it was a 50 min flight."

Pros: "No delays on departure. Smooth boarding process"

Pros: "Ha mejorado la comida que dan en económica, en especial par un vuelo tan corto. Las tripulaciones colombianas son más amigables y orientadas al servicio que las panameñas. Panameños: Wake Up!!"
Cons: "Ya es hora que inviertan en esto. Tanto en ejecutiva como en económica."

Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."

Pros: "Planes are clean and crew is nice"
Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline, they will over sell their tickets and then expect you to give yours away. Boarding was messy."

Pros: "I was treated SO well as my flight was bumped back a day. I was given a stay at a wonderful hotel with all meals and transportstion as well. It was exquisite! Not to mention $350 reimbursement & wonderful interactions every step of the way."
Cons: "I didn't like delaying my schedule 1 day, but the positives outweighed the negatives without question."

Pros: "One of your crew members went above and beyond to help a family that was sitting next to me. That kind if service was unexpected and a huge help to the family. We were all impressed. They were all very cordial and polite."

Pros: "Very friendly and professional service combined with good food"

Pros: "2 free checked bags, and hot sandwich and drink in coach"
Cons: "Can't think on anything"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Poor customer service for our friend who had a problem with her ticket."

Pros: "nice staff."
Cons: "delayed leaving and arriving. no entertainment."

Cons: "Never answered the numbers I called when I got to the airport ended up having to rent with another company"

Pros: "Courteous staff, everything was on time, and the free meal and drinks (including alcohol) is a refreshing throwback to the old days."

Pros: "El personal muy amable. El vuelo salió a tiempo y llegó bien. La comida buena."

Cons: "I already wrote this in their customer feedback, and I haven't gotten a response."

Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."

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: "---"

Pros: "- nice staff - food on the plane"

Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"

Pros: "The flight was all good. I had a good experience, I would like to add that getting to the airport 2hours early is really not necessary. It's not a big airport and I spend a lot of idle time there.. I liked Copa airlines and will use them again."

Pros: "I didn't expect to be fed on the flight so that was a nice surprise."

Pros: "I liked the spacious seats and free food and drinks. I appreciated the flight being on time."

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"

Pros: "I love the genral flight experice. I found the crew very helpful and friendly. I liked the food."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "I was looking to fly to Costa Rica and found a price offer for $70 through Volaris. I thought this was a good deal until I looked at the baggage policy. Turns out you have to pay for each bag,bringing my luggage total to $50. Thats when I noticed Copa Airlnes had the same price for airfare plus two free bags! I was sold. Overall great service!"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight due to flight being changed to a different gate than what was written in my ticket."

Pros: "Thank you for offering food, but something's without meat would have me flying copa every time!"

Pros: "It was a short flight....they made the trip comfortable, and on time..."
Cons: "No complaints....."

Cons: "Flights were delayed"

Pros: "Agent issued boarding passes and luggage ticket but somehow didn't process payment. After waiting 4 hours for boarding we were denied entry into plane. Somehow agent overrode the safeguards and was able to issue boarding pass. Very lax security and agent even denied seeing credit card given to them."
Cons: "Ticket counter personell"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "NOTHING"

Pros: "The great service on bord at all time"
Cons: "The line we had to make at the checkin... but after that ok"

Pros: "The service overall is great. The airplane is comfortable. Airport in Panama has very good service. I would take Copa again."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above. Even after a long layover and a change of planes, it was still the cramped seats and an old plane."

Cons: "Me dañaron una maleta y ya puse el reclamo"

Pros: "love you guys!"

Cons: "It was a mess we got to Costa Rica 3 hours later tan we were supposed to"

Pros: "Staff very pleasant and competent. The flight was only one hour duration, but they still managed to serve a small meal and refreshments. Would definitely use again"

Pros: "On time is the most important feature of COPA. The other is that COPA remain as a full service compared to most that cut services more and more."
Cons: "Sometimes price are quite high that makes flying COPA impossible, way too high"

Cons: "Gate switching with no notice"

Pros: "Ground Crew is alwyas super friendly and very polite. I Normally love to fly with COPA for a number of reasons...but this short trip had two inconviniences that are noted here on the what I thought needed to happen."
Cons: "Male Flight Attendant had attitude and asked me to put my set back in upright position...it was and I had a broken foot, so it would not have been appropriate to put my seat back due to pain. He jkumpoedf all over ma and even the lady next to me...she to was reading and did not have her seat back either! Food was a bag of chips...1 OZ bag of Frito Lay Chips..... HERE IS A HUGE HINT: BEST TO NOT GIVE ANYTHING...DO NOT INSULT US MORE!!!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"

Cons: "The flight had an emergency oxygen failure an hour into the flight, so we had to turn around and go back to the departure city for 4 hours. Extremely annoying on an overnight flight."

Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"

Pros: "On Time Departure / Early Arrival. Pleasant Crew"

Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."

Pros: "It was a safe flight back to the Phoenix thank you."
Cons: "More ethical vegan options."

Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."

Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"

Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, decent entertainment."

Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "Everything!"

Cons: "No AC, and after boarding there was an issue with the; we had to deboard and wait nearly an hour to load onto another plane."

Cons: "The entire entertainment system was down the entire 6 hour flight. Crew attempted to reboot the system several times with no luck."

Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"

Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Pros: "Good entertainment. Gate agents friendly and efficient"

Pros: "Friendly attendants"

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Pros: "Everything went smooth and fast"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time. Modern plane. Got the sense that careful aircraft maintenance is always a high priority. Courteous attendants. Large choice of movies."
Cons: "Blankets but no pillows on this long red-eye. We need a pillow! Wrap was a bit doughy. no choices."

Pros: "Efficient, nice crew."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Terrible situation for a long flight."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"

Cons: "My luggage was inexplicably placed on a later flight which arrived an hour after my flight arrived."

Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees seemed like they didn’t like working for American. Flight was delayed and nobody informed us about it until it was past the past the boarding time. Missed connecting flight and booked on flight 5 hours past original departure time. Sat in an aisle seat and stewardess kept bumping my arms."

Cons: "Flight was overbooked"

Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Cons: "My seat was broken and wouldn't recline very much at all."

Pros: "The entertainment was a new release movie - liked that. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, especially for a 7 hour trip! My tray table broke and would not close. I informed a stewardess and she apologized for the inconvenience and did her best to duct tape it shut (twice). It's an old plane, I would not recommend for a flight more than 2 hours. Wasn't greeted at boarding. Had to interrupt staff to ask which side of plane I should walk down to get to my seat. I paid extra for 12th row - waste of money!"

Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"

Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and movie selection was excellent. They did not provide headphones however. Boo."

Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."

Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"

Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
