Pros: "The entertainment, screens on back rest ensured, a proper flight entertainment."
Cons: "What is the purpose of checking in Early? I was at the furthest rear position of the Plane, and it was a very long flight. I checked in 24 hrs prior to flight and stayed up until we were able to check in through mobile app. I was very disappointed that my seat was next to restroom traffic."
Pros: "It's nice to fly a real airline. Where a bag is included, overhead bins fit standard carry ons, the seats recline, if even just a short distance."
Cons: "That omelette at 3:30 in the morning was horrible. Even the sausage link tasted odd. Not bad if the only complaint is airline food though."
Cons: "The mini TV screens are hard to see if you're seated very far back. And it's also hard to see the mini screens if other people have their window shades opened, so the personal screens for longer flights seem like a better alternative."

Cons: "Seats: on one leg (Panama to Mexico City) the seats are just like in Economy class, only a wider and more legg-room. But no FOOT REST, which is essential in a long flight. Laniding in Mexico was via a staircase and a bus (no fault of Copa). Reservation via BOOKING turned out to be a problem (could not make changes in flights). I had to do it via "influence", a pain in the neck."
Pros: "Again, the excellent service"
Pros: "Food was ok, Some of the crew were friendly better then Mia Panama."

Worse, the check-in staff at Panama said that it did, but on arrival at the lounge, the staff there said it did not. Awkward and embarrassing. No inflight refreshments, etc. apart from the hot breakfast."
Pros: "Movie and game options"
Cons: "No Wifi!! No food for purchase :("
Pros: "The service its excellent never change!!!"
Pros: "It was my first time with COPA. I went to Buenos Aires with them (Montréal»Panama City and Panama City»BA). Aircrafts were much nicer and newer for the Panama»BA portion. The boarding was on-time and the staff was very nice. Considering the price I paid, the food was totally acceptable. Also, they automatically made my check-in for me and my son the day before our departure (returning back to Montréal) which was a pleasant surprise! I do recommend COPA for a good price/service ratio."
Cons: "The aircraft still had TVs popping out from the celling with 1 movie for the whole craft. I found that a bit archaic..."
Cons: "On top of what happened with the flight from NY to Panama the situation wasnt handle any better for the conexion. There was not priority conection to the inmediate following flight to Bogota. We had to wait four more hours to go to Bogota. Also the sits were accomodated terribly for me (I can understand they had to use what was available) but if Im traveling with a minor the airline should make sure the child is seated next or near me. Even though, I understood it was a detail that simply they did not control correctly, I requested to two flight attendants to please fix the problem for me, but I was totally ignored by both. When I told them a second time, they said to me there was nothing they can do. But coincidencially, right after I was told, he sat one passanger whom have not seat assigned, right in front of me on the emergency exit. The attendant said minors cant go there which is true, but I would have seated there, and my daughter on the sit that I was which was right behind me. That plus another rude encounter with one of the flight attendants when I was getting into the plane made of my experience with Copa Airlines my first and only trip with them. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."

Pros: "The direct flight was great and made up for the rescheduled flight time in Memphis."
Cons: "Original Flight did not depart on time."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."

Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."

Cons: "Bosrdunf staff at DCA. No communication in crowded area"

Cons: "3 hours late. I could have driven home faster than this and saved $800. Once again, disappointed."
Cons: "American Airlines seemed to be out of sorts on both days of the trip. My connecting flight seat was not assigned until I got to my connecting airport. On the way back, we sat in the plane for over half an hour with no explanation. We then had to de-plane due to engine issues. The attendants at the counter were not that efficient with rescheduling itineraries, as they were often taking breaks, engaging in chit-chat with other workers, and answering personal phone calls during the process. On the connecting flight back, the ground crew "was not ready" for the plane and advised us to "hang out". This made for very little time in finding my connecting flight home (especially because the assigned gate was not even listed in the airport terminal). Not overly dramatic. Just a lot of small things that culminated in a very frustrating travel day. I will likely be avoiding American Airlines in the future."

Cons: "The plane had no A/C!..it just circulated hot air mixed with stale body odor from previous flight!..no leg room and the flight was 100% full..CanadaAir regional jet..and the seats were all narrow, and we were in 1A, !B...totally disappointed!"
Pros: "The crew made the best out of it and thankfully it’s an extremely short flight."
Cons: "A 20 minute flight was delayed for 2.5 hrs. United did a terrible job with notifying passengers, just simply bumped out departure in 15 min increments. Original excuse was inbound delay, although plane was there for 6 hrs already. Passenger soiled himself in cabin and there was no ventilation."

Cons: "Shrinking the knee room is a mistake"
Pros: "Airbus 380 was comfortable and new which made for a decent flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa and United computer systems don't talk to one another. We had a leg of our journey from United. We could not purchase seats on the Lufthansa flights and could not even check in; therefore we ended up with seats that were not comfortable for us. Lufthansa messed up on our meals despite it being 'confirmed' (we checked with the service desk in Frankfurt). The in flight movies were ok; the touch screens are not sensitive enough and take lots of processing time."

Cons: "I sat in section 4 in economy coach. The ticketing agents REQUIRED everyone in sections 4 and 5 in the back to check our bags, they gave us no choice! We then boarded the airplane to find over half of all the overhead bins empty! This is completely unacceptable to be separated from my carry-on luggage for no reason! There would have been plenty of room for our baggage! One more reason to never fly United again!"

Pros: "Courteous perdonality"
Cons: "The noisy children"
Pros: "I have food a low score as there basically was none. I was offered a glass of water. I paid $74 for an emergency exit seat, and while it gave extra legroom, the seat hardly reclined at all."
Cons: "Lack of food choices, but perhaps not atypical for coach."
Pros: "We were diverted to Austin due to weather. We had to refuel and we were stuck on the Tarmac for over an hour. While all of this was miserable, the Crew stayed active answering questions. The Captain gave several updates and walked the aisle. They even let people off the plane who were trying to get to Austin. For a bad situation this crew made it so much better!"

By the time we got to our destination we almost didn't get a rental car. There was some turbulence on the flight, which is expected. Landing was very rough, came in too fast and hit the breaks so hard I thought I was going to end up in the back of the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Very old plane"
Pros: "I like that all flights were ontime"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to passengers and my luggage was lost so I arrived at my destination with nothing!! I had to wait at the airport for 6hours for my luggage to be returned to me!"
