Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Cons: "Nothing. Every thing was great"
Pros: "Very comfortable seating!"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough. Lol"
Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."
Pros: "Clean plane, quick turnaround"
Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."
Cons: "A 7+ hour delay!"
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 !"

Cons: "Lots of turbulence on the last 20 minutes of the flight. Captain had warned us. Nothing they can control though."
Pros: "Seats. Service. Timing"
Cons: "No tv screen"
Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"
Cons: "All went well"
Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Very professional cabin crew"
Pros: "I always love flying on Delta! The service is always excellent. The crew is always nice and attentive!"
Pros: "Thank God I was able to get a refund"

Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."
Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."
Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and unloading. Friendly staff. Good movies/tv shows."

Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "I didn't like having my seat assigned at the gate. I booked this flight months ago, but yet somehow I got the very last row of the plan. Which is the noisiest location with the least amount of room. On the flight back they put me in the second to last row, even though there were about 10 seats empty scattered throughout the plan. Made no sense to me."
Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."
Pros: "Planes were nice and updated, screens, wi-fi, easy to board, on time! FA were nice and friendly. Delta terminal at Mia was easier to navigate than AA. Liked that they didn't charge for middle seat towards the front. I feel claustrophobic in the back but hate paying extra for seats up front. A long time AA Gold Member, looking forward to more Delta flights."
Cons: "Only food available was pretzels. Not even peanuts or cookies."
Cons: "I booked with Delta who doesnt give you limits of weight for the carryon...why since the flight was operated from Airfrance they gave me limits of weight of 12 kg??? one ticket one law pls again, the hostess in my row was very nice, even the steward who was working with her very snob...it's not his job"
Pros: "The hotel I had to stay I. Because of a delayed flight was nice"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, delay, no show on the crew so cancelled, delay, delay, delay only to arrive in a different city from my original place of arrival just to go home."
Pros: "That the flight ran on time"
Cons: "Everything is an added charge. No food option. No TVs. No friendliness. We were consistently inconvenienced as the flight attendant was seated next to us and interrupted us consistently with no apologies."
Cons: "The girl at the counter was not nice"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."
Cons: "Maybe less cold the temperature."
Pros: "En realidad todo muy bueno"
Pros: "The seat very well."
Pros: "Very un-experienced Air hostess..They seriously need training. Also they need language training in English"

Cons: "todo, mejor atencion por parte de la tripulacion de cabina, mejor comida, avion muy frio, pudieron dar frasadas. aviones sin pantallas personalizadas o mejor entretenimiento a pesar de ser vuelo internacional. deberia costar menos los pasajes para ofrecer un servicio muy muy muy basico"
Pros: "All services"
Cons: "Frist :Late for more than 6 hours in Miami. Second: obviously I lost my connection to Bog-Col , they give me a hotel room whithout A/C and smell like mold for that reason. Third: there is no breakfast in the hotel. Thanks for asking Kayak Bye"

Cons: "They didn't have coffee or tea"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."
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: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Pros: "No delays on departure. Smooth boarding process"
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: "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: "Thank you for offering food, but something's without meat would have me flying copa every time!"
Cons: "Flights were delayed"
Pros: "It was a good trip.. Thanks!!"
Pros: "Staffs were so kind and professional."
Cons: "I've flown Copa many times before and it's generally good for low-cost price but this time was horrible, probably because our first time with new baby. First, there was unexpected shock of having to pay $300 at gate for ticket for the baby, even though she is 4 months and sat on my lap the whole time. Never heard of charging for that and we had to pay % of roundtrip ticket cost right there and then. Second, they don't allow early boarding for families with small children. Third, and finally, on the trip back they also suddenly announced a "no checking boxes policy" which I had also never heard of. We had to take a baby swing out of its box, dismantle it, and carry on a large part of it. A total hassle and crew was not very understanding. Definitely think twice about flying Copa if you have kids."
Pros: "4 hrs late"
Cons: "I was not on this flight as a mistake was made by either Kayak or WestJet. I was not refunded my money which I think is unfair."
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, and we travelled with a lap infant - we really appreciated that they blocked off row for us."
Cons: "The food is a scam. It’s overpriced, made poorly, and it’s the only option if you didn’t pack anything onto the plane with you."
Cons: "Always delays with this airline, hope their service improves now they have been bought out by Air Canada. Staff need training on how to deal with their delays, rather than the "I know as much as you" answer. Their staff have always pleaded blind ignorance when disruptions occur. AVOID."
Cons: "I would expect that with a 5 and half fight that some sort of food besides ti terrible cookies and pretzel would've been offered!! A very long time to go without food!!!"
Cons: "Explain the reason of the delay to us. Service while boarding was very poor No smile or welcome"
Cons: "It was all good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours at Pearson Airport."

Pros: "Flight was only delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "Smooth. On time"
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "We took off on time and landed a little early. Crew were very nice. I couldn’t judge the entertainment as I didn’t have iPad with me to connect to the wi-fi and watch movie. Plenty of snacks. Worth the cost of the flight."
Cons: "Lazy flight attendant. Only got served once during the entire flight"
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Pros: "It was easy getting through the line and onto the plane. The seat was on the window, which I wouldn't normally sit in, and was comfortable enough for me to get an hour of sleep on an overnight flight; I'm content with that."
Cons: "The fee for changing my assigned seat, thus the window seat, and one of the flight attendants was very impolite; though overall the flight attendants were pleasant enough."
Pros: "Affordable, great service, and easy"
Cons: "The internet and TV service were both broken on the flight. I missed out on much of the work I had to do. I was very disappointed that we were only told just minutes before boarding. I was not prepared to spend 5 hours on a flight with a screaming baby, unable to work or watch tv."
Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."
Cons: "Boarding attendant demanded to see my passport for a domestic flight even though I had produced the government-issued photo ID required."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wheel chair services was horrible. 8 passengers needed assistance and there were 2 assistants to aid them. This took over two hours as they attended to passengers with connecting flights first. It was frustrating waiting 2hrs after the flight landed to collect luggage and leave airport."
Pros: "seated in plus, more legroom"
Cons: "30 minute delay boarding/ arrival"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment app. is terrible, movies really old."
Pros: "Overall service on the flight."
Cons: "The management of carry on luggage on the flight. It seems that there is no control over the placement of carry on luggage in relation to seat selection. many people entering the aircraft drop of luggage in the bins close to the front of the cabin even when they are sitting at the rear... Simple solution would be to assign luggage based on zone. Zone A to Be Window seat. Zone B to be a centre seat and Zone C to be Aisle seat. Designate a portion of the overhead bin to be A, B and C like the seats. Ensure that baggage is transported to the seat designated."
Pros: "West jet people cope with constant delays and breakdowns with calmness and desire to help the passengers. My flight was fine, no problems. I trust that any problems that come up can be resolved."
Cons: "I know that snacks are not a major factor on a flight but when there is the exact same choice of Lotus cookies and pretzels on every single flight it is really boring. By the end of three flights over a long day, it’s pretty awful."
Cons: "no entertainment I didn't order food so can't comment on this The seats are too close for comfort"
Cons: "The stewardess (Stephanie was her name I think) grabbed my arm and pushed it out of her way rather than asking me to move. While it may sound dramatic, I am certainly not accustomed to a stranger putting their hands on me and it was hugely inappropriate and ruined my flight. This was my first WestJet flight after flying countless times with Air Canada. The whole experience was soured and I will never look at WestJet the same again."
Pros: "THE YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Pros: "Same as above..."
Pros: "The flight was on time, there was enough room for carryons in the overhead bins"
Cons: "I did not have any food or use the entertainment options so that’s why I scored them low as I don’t know how good they were."
Pros: "The staff and comfort."
Pros: "The flight was delayed several times. We spend all day at the airport and the airline only gives us really bad excuses. I will never again flight with this airline. The flight from hell.."
Cons: "Delayed flight and disorganized boarding in Kingston made it a bit frustrating."
Pros: "No stops in US."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "Westjet service and staff are friendly and helpful as always."
Cons: "The delay waiting to have the plane deiced before departure was a bit of a pain, but I also know this is out of control of the airline or the airport for that matter. It is something that can happen with the weather, so we just have to be patient."
Pros: "It was very enjoyable all round."
Cons: "That the fare advertised didn’t include a seat or a suitcase. Very unfair comparison."
Cons: "Appalled that I was approached by two flight attendants separately to turn off my light in order to accommodate another passenger as the light was bothering them on a night flight. I pay premium pricing for the Plus seat so I have extra room to work. I chose not to turn off light in order to work, then flight attendants allowed the passenger to approach me. Really unacceptable to put me in uncomfortable interaction, making me play bad cop. I was sitting behind passengers talking loudly who were using profanity. My solution? Earphones. This is a commercial flight - offer passengers eye covers, some solution, or tell them to deal with it, or tell them to charter a private plane.
