Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

Pros: "The crew and pilot were awesome! Very friendly! Nodding was pretty quick."
Cons: "It was an older plane. WiFi Didn’t work. But not a huge deal. It would be nice if they ask you to check at the gate due to overhead space if they could have those bags come out first from the baggage claim."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Pros: "The crew was good, love free snacks and T5."
Cons: "Wi-Fi didn’t work and water was only served once. Not enough."
Cons: "Long delay and communication problem, delay was moved up. Impossible to plan."
Pros: "Everything including the seating, in flight service and entertainment."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and had noticeably more leg room than any other airline I’ve been on recently."
Cons: "Delayed over 2hrs"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"
Pros: "Good legroom"
Pros: "First time to fly JetBlue! Very nice and all that leg room. Next travel JetBlue it is!"
Pros: "On Time and smooth."
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Cons: "I wish a non Carb protein snack were offered."
Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "Flight was on time Leg room was good"
Pros: "Quick boarding, plenty of snacks and beverages, and smooth flight. Very roomy compared to other airlines"

Pros: "I had 2 hours of napping which was very much needed."

Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."

Pros: "checking in could not have been easier"
Cons: "I wanted them to bring more coffee around"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Security was so backed up. I was not the only one who missed a flight, there were several people in line with me That also missed fights. They seemed very understaffed. When myself and other passengers asked them for help, they either ignore us or laughed."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "A 2 year old child screamed approximately 4 of the 5 hours we were in the air. The crew should have brought it to the attention of the parents or asked that they take the child to the back of plane and try to calm him down ."
Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."
Pros: "Service was excellent and we actually had leg room!!"
Cons: "World‘s tiniest airplane toilet. I think munchkins built this for other munchkins. And I don’t mean big munchkins, but real real small munchkins."

Pros: "Great entertainment and service. Great leg room too."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, hard to sleep in."
Pros: "Legroom"

Pros: "Everything ok"

Pros: "Buisenss class cabin service"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Great service gave my brother all the attention he needed"

Cons: "The temperature in the aircraft ! Cold !!!"
Pros: "- Plane seats were comfortable - Inflight entertainment - Friendly airline attendants"
Pros: "Big failed work in new york check-in account. After the 1 hour waiting, let us(who has ticket after the 01:00) the line with only one reason why it's so early and need to support other laters. Moreover, had lost my baggage."
Cons: "Big problem was with several hundreds travelers to Bogota, Sao Paulo for 23:10~40. Avianca accounts don't have any classification to avoid this type disorders problem. Had waited my bag on the band during 1 hour. But, wasn't arrived various travelers bag from new york."
Pros: "Not good service"
Pros: "Thumbs up to your staff in Flores, Petén. The ticketing officer, the boarding officer, the flight crew...E.X.C.E.L.L.E.N.T..!! I will recommend Avianca to my friend's, most definitely."
Cons: "On my flight to Flores, Petén. the ticket counter lady at La Aurora airport, refused to take my checked baggage, even though I checked in at the counter of Avianca 15 minutes before de deadline set by the airline for checked in baggage. I was very disappointed on my flight to Flores, Peten."

Cons: "Food had a weird flavor, couldn’t eat it at all. Dessert was good"
Pros: "Quick, clean plane and good flight"
Cons: "3 changes of gate, snack was too cold"
Cons: "Avianca wouldn’t let me board because gate agents couldn’t find return trip in system. Only had a week’s vacation and lost a full day to be in Costa Rica. Then had same problem going back. I’ll never book Avianca and never use kayak to.book any airline"
Pros: "Great costumer service. Nice to have food aboard too, even for short flights."
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "entertainment"
Pros: "They don't feel cheap like the USA airlines these days. Free entertainment, real food, free alcoholic drinks. Pilot gave my kids a tour of the cockpit and gave them a wings pin and a little toy airplane. Flight attendants are kind and efficient. AND they were the cheapest option. I want to always fly them if possible!"
Pros: "no problems on flt"
Cons: "everything was fine"
Pros: "Abbording."
Cons: "For price they dont give food."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First, the departure terminal didn't show up on the reader boards until it was almost time to go, so I had to sprint down to our gate. Then, they boarded by zones, but I had no idea what zone I was supposed to be in and it was nowhere on my ticket. Anywhere. Then, when I finally decided to go try to board, they wouldn't let me because they said I didn't have a return ticket. In fact, I had proof of onward travel in three different forms. But they insisted that I had to have a flight as proof of leaving Guatemala and assured me that customs would prevent me from entering. They also said I had 5 minutes to book something or I would miss the flight. No one ever paged me to discuss this prior to departure! And do you know how much Guatemala asked about my onward travel? Zero. Nada. In the fluster of buying an almost $400 ticket, I clicked to book through a third party that doesn't allow refunds. Fortunately, after I landed I called them right away to cancel and managed to make it happen since the ticket hadn't been issued, but if I had failed at that it would have been at least $130 when all was said and done. Ride was uncomfortable, flight attendants we're rude and impatient, and I was ignored for food service."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not individual TV Different seat for the other ticket Issues with the hand bag in the moment of boarding"
Cons: "There is not even a USB available..."
Pros: "Good food, drinks and entertainment."
Cons: "The flight from Bogota was delayed"
Pros: "It was a 50 minute flight, so entertainment and food are irrelevant. The flight took off and landed on time and the crew was very pofessional snd efficient."
Cons: "The price - for a short distance fliht the price-tag was pretty steep."
Pros: "Flight crew was lovely, I was surprised to learn we received lunch on such a short flight, and make sure you get to the terminal early as the shuttle you to the plane. I would definitely fly Avianca again!"
Cons: "Baggage Handling, baggage did not come, at least the"
Pros: "I happened to get the row behind first class, so there was more leg room."
Cons: "The seat I was in felt like it only had a few millimeters of cushioning and was very hard. Pretty rough for a 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "The aircraft are modern and well marinated and the flight and cabin crew are very attentive. There is meal service in all cabins!"
Pros: "As a rider enjoyed also many food provided thasn asny airline."
Cons: "Service of no question."

Cons: "Avianca could capacite your personal. Price - Service is not real"
Pros: "Flight left on time, I felt safe."
Cons: "I think it was a little more expensive than expected."
Pros: "Nice on flight attention"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "they put me up in a hotel for the day"
Cons: "THEY CANCELLED THE FLIGHT WITHOUT GIVING ANY REASON. DIDN'T NOTIFY ANY PASSENGERS UNTIL THEY ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT FOR THIS 6AM FLIGHT. NEXT FLIGHT WASN'T FOR MORE THAN 14 HOURS LATER."
Pros: "food and beverage service on such a short flight."
Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "Forced to watch only 1 movie for the crew, and the seats eere not as comfortabale"
Pros: "Being from the US, airline customer service has really gone down hill. Avianca employees were so helpful, efficient and corteous. They even gave us breakfast on a 45 minute flight!"
Cons: "My passport was not due to expire for the NEXT 4 months AFTER my come back day The lady from Avianca didn't let me board due to my passport expiring 4 months after my return day. I had to pay for a 24 hours expedite / rush passport. ALSO, once I got my new passport (17 hours later) I was told that I had to pay $170 penalty for moving my departure day and $680 because I had to adjust to the new ticket price. At that point I decide to buy a new ticket with a different airline. AVIANCA SUCKS!!! They are NOT very accommodating at all. Will not recommend this agency and I WILL NEVER ever again will use their service."
Cons: "Got an email saying my flight time was pushed back 2 hours, flying from Flores to Guatemala City. This meant that I would not make it to Guatemala City in time to catch my flight back to the U.S. As a result I had to cancel that flight and forefeit over $300, AND I had to forfeit the $120 I paid to Avianca. So, Avianca just randomly decides to significantly change flight times and it costs me over $400, AND without a way home. The submission to consider even a partial refund was rejected in a matter of days. This is the worst airline ever and you should never ever rely on a flight with them."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Bad customer service when dealing with the issue."
Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."

Cons: "See previous comments."
Pros: "Safe and fast journey."
Cons: "Vegan options for everything."
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late."
Pros: "Enjoy flying with Delta, crew was great."
Cons: "disappointed they didn't have a few more snacks available."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Notes were in the computer that our flight was delayed in someone at Delta told us we had to re book because we were not 2 hours prior to our flight after arriving in a cab. Delta error. Other lady told us to run to a security and get to the gate which we did and there were notes in the system and t"
Cons: "I’m tired of Delta gate agents “requiring” those in Main cabin 3 gate checking bags!! Both legs of the trip it came to a point they said it’s mandatory to gate check all remaining bags. We get on board and there’s plenty of overhead space. Even a flight attendant mentioned how empty the bins were!"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable seat, it was a very good experience overall."
Cons: "Unfortunately had flights delayed which forced me to arrive home much later than originally planned."
Pros: "The service by delta employees for this leg of my journey was beyond great. The leg room was above average."
Cons: "Leg room. Never can have enough leg room."
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Sleeping was too uncomfortable"
Cons: "The overhead didn’t fit my standard and I ask the gate attendant and she assured me or would. Otherwise excellent game"
Pros: "Nicer plane"
Cons: "One stewardess almonds mowed me down with cart"
Cons: "I did not like that they would not assign me a seat because the flight appeared to be oversold. Finally I was allowed to board (and it was a good seat location but the seat back was locked in the upright position and I wanted to knap)"
Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent. Friendly, helpful, efficient"
Cons: "Having to wait till almost boarding time to have seat assignment . If the ticket was confirmed already st the time of purchase why make people wait until the last minute for a seat???"
Pros: "Swift travel!"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "Even though I was disappointed by not being able to get the boarding passes from Delta for Aeromexico’s connecting flight to Bogota, I had an agent greet me after customs in Mexico to issue the boarding pass so I could use the transfer flight line. Excellent service throughout the entire trip."
Cons: "Confusion over my boarding pass at the Delta terminal in Detroit."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
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."
Cons: "Layover"
Cons: "Hurricane Irma, I was lucky enough to get a refund do to the natural disaster."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Pros: "The crew were incredibly friendly. The copilot helped me gate-check my bag before he boarded when the bag didn't fit into the overhead bin."
Pros: "Flight was quick, Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was older with no power connections"
Pros: "Very fast boarding process."
Cons: "Once boarded we sat at the gate for probably 15-20 minutes with no explanation but different crew members were getting on and off. Plane was very hot the entire time. No airflow on such a small plane made it a very uncomfortable flight. Stewardess was impossible to understand and could barely make it through the required announcements. What words you could make out, she could barely pronounce them. Stewardess also served many people incorrectly."
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"

Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."

Cons: "Changed gates at Panama without any alert until boarding time."

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: "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."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
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."
Cons: "Never answered the numbers I called when I got to the airport ended up having to rent with another company"
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: "---"
Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"
Pros: "I didn't expect to be fed on the flight so that was a nice surprise."

Cons: "Getting food service back on plains."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"
Cons: "the wifi is awful"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "DCA poorly organized"
Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"
Pros: "quiet, comfortable. good food in first class"
Cons: "people with "emotional support animals" should board LAST, not first"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Crew on board are great."
Cons: "American keeps canceling and changing schedules. They cancelled flight section and took it out of my itinerary. Then took over 3 calls and 2 hours on hold to fix."
Pros: "The crew tries."

Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."
Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."
Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Food & inflight entertaiment decent."
Cons: "Gate agent claiming carry on bag ro large. Used it 30+ as a carryon with our difficulty. It is 14”x22”. If the concern was too many bages dont bs pasengers about reason they are asked to to check bag."
Cons: "On the first flight my husband and I each had a personal item and carry on that we carried on fine! We stopped in Charlotte for a lay over and we went to board the plane they told us our carry on was to big and had to be checked. This was very frustrating because we were just able to carry on this bag. We feel the planes are the same it shouldn't change from plane to plane."
Pros: "Crew were great. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane didn't have in-seat entertainment. Very hard to watch movies on small central screens. Movies were really old."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time Crew was very friendly Free movies while in flight is always nice Mobile boarding pass - every airline should have them (but they don't)"
Cons: "Having to pay $35 for a little extra leg room"
Cons: "American completely missed the mark. AA did not successfully change our reservation when the initial leg of our trip was delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue, which caused us to miss your connection in Chicago. Since American partners with Alaskan Airlines, American should have changed my reservations with regards to Alaska Airlines, but they failed to do that. I stood at the Alaskan Airlines counter as the plane left the gate with our empty seats because there was not a ticket. American Airlines did not change a reservation successfully and so although we had boarding passes with our names and seats and the flight number, the plane left without us. I was stranded and Seattle airport at midnight with a child and an infant with one diaper and one bottle left and it was a terrible experience with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying American they cannot get it together when problems happen with delays."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "Very nice crew Very smooth flight On time!"
Cons: "They didn’t have coffee or tea, but them announced that in the beginning. No WiFi. Also announced."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "Excellent service. Loved the tv screens with the remote. Exclennt flignt"
Cons: "Delayed flight out of Paris caused missed connection in Dallas."
Pros: "Cheap seat had leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment. None. Horrible movies on common shared screen. Really sucks on long flights. Would not fly American again until they update enetertainment."
Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly helpful airline atendents."
Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"
Cons: "The airline was changed and I was not aware until I arrived to the airport."
Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."
Cons: "My seat belt and my neighbor's seat belt didn't stay tightened. Luckily there was no need for a seat belt, but we were very concerned. We were wondering if all the seat belts on the plane were the same. They could never hold you in with even slight turbulence."
Pros: "Entertainment, service, pilot and his crew were great."
Cons: "Food was not good. Can do better. As vegetarian there are lots of good places they can order the food from."
Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Flights were on time if not early-Excellent"
Cons: "E tickets or even itinerary should have terminals listed on E ticket LGA-got off at Am terminal B to find out I was leaving from C Had to take shuttle to C. Return to NY same issue-had to ask what terminal I was at To notify my driver once I was off the plane."
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Pros: "The flight crew was exetrmely helpful"
Cons: "Even for a more room seat it was a bit tight"
