Cons: "could not make it in time. Then we got on plane and pilot said it was an electrical problem on the flight but the generators were now up and at em again. Very hair raising ride for me - got in at 2:30 am with another hour to drive home - and I lost a LOT of confidence which I have always had in Jet Blue. I hope this is not the future we can expect with you"

Pros: "Inflight Service is great"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."

Pros: "Good service and on time."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

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"

Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Pros: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. The overall flight was fast so no time to get uncomfortable."

Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."
Cons: "The foldable snack tray was broken on the flight to ATL."

Pros: "the seats were ok"
Cons: "was little late"

Cons: "Delta staff taking care of rude/beligerant guests first vedore guests patiently/kindly waiting in line ... children watched that behavior and the jerks recieved special treatment. Flight staff ripped up guests boarding pass in face. Staff allowed ys to board plane and put our bags under plane and then crew timed out before take off. Never will use Delta again."

Pros: "The attention, kindness and never tiring helpful attitude of the personnel."
Cons: "None of the 7 screens I ried had the audio working. I had to result to sleeping when I could have easily enjoyed 3 movies and what not. It would also be helpful to have charging outlets on long-haul/international flights."

Cons: "Price to get a little more space"

Pros: "Plane is great. Comfortable."
Cons: "The staff at the gate at LGA were not too friendly."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Cons: "Airplanes are filthy; asked for Coke without ice & the flight attendant filled my cup halfway. Unbelievably cheap! I was afraid to ask for more, for fear that I'd get an up charge!"

Pros: "The flight crew was great"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good service"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Everything ok"

Cons: "The gluten free food, I was food poisoned with it! It was horrible! Use better airplanes, the movie was ok but the system is old."

Cons: "Copa check-in in Chicago was awful, and it wasn’t just for my family and me. The manger and several employees were rude and seemed clueless about what they were doing. I shouldn’t be surprised that none of our luggage arrived because of the unorganized check-in but it just added to the frustration."

Pros: "Good food (especially the Fruit platter we get when departing from Panama and the Guayaba juice that's available in all flights), very short layover, short flying time, allowed 2 checked bags plus a carry-on and a personal item."
Cons: "Web-checking still a little buggy (I'm not allowed to web checking when going to the USA, when departing from the USA and my destination address is in a different country I'm still forced to choose a US State to continue). Also Panama Tucumen Airport is awful, crowded, expensive and usually dirty."

Pros: "On the flight from Chicago to Panamá crew was exceptional, friendly and attentive, I was very impressed with the service,PLEASE DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING , from Panamá to Costa Rica the crew was completely different, the service was efficient but not friendly, a smiling face makes a difference."

Pros: "Very friendly service and very helpful even though there is a language difference, they were great in making me feel comfortable."

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Good servoe"
Cons: "No WIFI connection movie selections"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. I ordered Kosher meals, but they did not have any available, so I pretty much watched everyone else eat while I couldn't."

Pros: "Service was excellent"

Pros: "Es la Primera vez qué vuelo con Uds. Me gusto La amabilidad del personal. Sigan así no cambien."

Pros: "The crew was great the food and service"
Cons: "For a 5 hour plus flight would have liked a more updated cabin with a charging station for electronic devices and possibly an entertainment center"

Pros: "Seats didn't recline, entertainment was poor."

Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "Maybe more entertainment for a 5 hour flight"

Pros: "My trip went really smooth with no delays. They were able to switch my seat to be closer to my friends that were flying with me with no hassle at all. I was surprise that they provided food on the trip, I have been in different airlines that don’t provide anything except for a drink. I would for sure use Copa Airlines for future South American trips"
Cons: "Only thing I might of dislike is that they were using an older plane and the tv quality was not good"

Pros: "Nothing. Even when it's the cheapest flight, th insignificant price difference vs. other airlines doesn't compensate the awful experience"
Cons: "The treatment of the crew was unrespectul. The food is extremely bad. The airplane and seats were uncomfortable."

Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I got bumped. Needs to be ther for work very inconvienant"

Cons: "Hice el webcheck in y aun asi me pusieron de ultimo en toda línea, entiendo que habian los que se quedaron del dia anterior, pero puso estrés en mi, también salimos tarde, y mas valijas se quedaron en Chicago y en lugar de mandarlas a mi casa, tuve que viajar 3 hours al aeropuerto y recogerlas yo misma despues que me habían dicho que las mandarían."

Pros: "Service."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "my table was dirty and I noticed right before my meal was served."

Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline and there is almost no entertainment."

Cons: "One of my bags did not arrive in Panama. They tell me it is now on my ongoing flight to Belize .....we'll see!"

Pros: "I love flying Copa! My friend and I had only a 40 minute layover on Tuesday morning from San Jose, CR to Panama City to Chicago. We were pretty worried about missing the flight in Panama City because that meant we missed our fight home. The crew was wonderful and changed our seats to the front of the plane so we wouldn't miss the flight. If he hadn't had done that, we 100% would have missed the flight .I will recommend Copa to everyone."

Cons: "Bad entertainment selection and screen."

Cons: "Not enough smiling from the crew"

Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."

Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."

Pros: "Everything was on time!"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."

Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"

Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."

Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"

Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."

Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."

Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."

Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."

Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"

Pros: "All the movies"
Cons: "Legroom"

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"

Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"

Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"

Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."

Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."

Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "We were delayed for 6 hours due to a maintenance issue. Horrible customer service"

Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"

Pros: "Couldn't of been more impressed especially after being hung out by Southwest!!!"

Cons: "We have flown to Europe recently on SAS and that airline was so much more comfortable than airberlin. Things we missed: personal TVs on the seats, good leg room (airberlin was quite cramped), and small attentions like a disposable towelette. I got no sleep on airberlin."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Experienced 4 hour delay with mechanical and weather problems. But glad they put safety first"

Pros: "They put safety first"
Cons: "Frustrating 4 hour delay"

Cons: "I am very disappointed in my flight. I am 6'7 and paid for an exit row seat. When I got to the airport they gave me a different seat with no leg room. They told me they changed planes and there was nothing they could do to help me. I tried again at the gate and again nothing. Will never fly again."

Pros: "Room on flight in coach was sufficient and im 6 ft 2"

Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good . There was a good variety of movies and music"
Cons: "the cabin was extremely small, absolutely no leg dpace unless you were in first class, specially if you are a taller person."

Pros: "Overall pleasant experience."
Cons: "I was not aware that the FinnAir flight was being handled by American. I missed it when reading my itinerary and had a brief panic when I showed up to the international terminal and my flight was not even listed on the board. Perhaps it could be written a little larger? Thanks."

Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Poor food quality"

Cons: "That small space!! This is a long flight and you have no room to move around at all!!!!!"

Pros: "Food, entertainment and free checked bag. Can ask for more!"

Pros: "In flight service."
Cons: "The first check in kiosk associate was turning us away because we reached 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure. However, by then they knew that they were going to be at least 1 hour 30 minute late. Then when kayak emailed us about the delay, the check in people let us in. Ultimately the flight was three hours late."

Pros: "Food, blanket & pillow,"
Cons: "Most of the video screens did not work. Long flight with no entertainment!"

Cons: "Free WiFi kn the plane was hardly working even over US mainland, before it list connection with outside internet over ocean. But it is something I do not care much about."

Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "Flight was on time."

Customer service put me on "red eye" to Dulles for the next flight to Charleston, without motel or meal vouchers. I couldnt sleep on the benches there due to asthma and diabetic issues. I arrived Friday 2:30 pm 17 hours late. Dulles overnight cleaning staff helped more than agents at OHare."

Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"

Pros: "Good"

Cons: "Delayed because there was no crew to fly the plane switched gates 6 different time other than that everything was good"

Pros: "I was incredibly disappointed that my luggage got sent on an earlier flight to Memphis from Chicago. When I arrived in Memphis after 24 hours of flying, I found my luggage locked up and no representative to be found. Exhausted, frustrated, and seeing my luggage through the glass door and not being able to retreave it, I was incredibly frustrated with United. If you are going to send luggage on a different flight, be there and available to let travelers claim their luggage. My entire flight had gotten their bags from baggage claim before I even found someone available to open the door. I had to get an American Airlines representative to call them to the area twice before they arrived. If you are going to do this, offer the traveler to be on the earlier flight too. I was very disappointed, especially after my flight was delayed by 45 minutes on top of it."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice service, friendly crew."

Pros: "Kind staff and crew."
Cons: "As usual, there were extensive delays. This time it was due to a plane change initially because there was a maintenance issue. Then, we had to walk across the airport to board our other plane at a gate on the other side. Then we had to wait for the crew to arrive before we could board. It wasn't until we finally were able to board that they discovered a maintenance issue on the second plane, so we sat on the tarmac in stifling heat due to the engine not being on for an hour and a half while they worked on the plane. We didn't take off until about 11:40 central time and arrive home until 1:30 AM eastern time instead of the scheduled 11:38 PM arrival time."

Pros: "Willingness to check carry ons for sold out flights"
Cons: "Choosing of seats process. My traveling partner and I did not get to sit together on way home. Everyone was nice and got a free upgrade but would have been nice to sit together"

Pros: "My mother is disabled and was assigned wheelchair assistance and does not speak English very very hopeful does not have a cell phone because she is disable and does not know how to use a cell phone I was calling the one 800 number for united airlines they gave me a phone number for the terminal where she was delayed and I was just trying to check to see if my mother was aware of what was going on with the delay I just need to know if my mother was OK to give her comfort but unfortunately the number they gave me was not working I was calling over 30 rings with nobody answering for over three hours O'Hare airport was very hopeless for united airlines it's a shame that that is their head quarters i'm pretty sure I will never ever use United Airline again in my life after the terrifying experience I had waiting over four hours from my mother besides the four hour flight I was very terrified until my mother was in my arms I never ever want to experience that again or I hopefully nobody ever that uses your United airline will ever experience that"
