Cons: "My wife had finished her cheese by the time the wine arrived Resent having to pay for a checked suitcase -- can't do less for a 9-day trip"
Cons: "The boarding process could've been a lot better. Couldn't even hear the announcements they were making and they had us waiting outside to board the plane for close to 10mins. What if it had been raining? Too chaotic."
Pros: "The entertainment was what I like most! Many other airlines do not offer this option or when they offer they charge you for it... jet Bleu has good entreteniment and free!"
Cons: "The boarding was not well organised and there was not enough space for hand lugged."
Cons: "I was flying back to the US from India. When I landed at JFK I founded out my flight was cancelled. Flight was cancelled due to weather and the next flight was not until the next day. I stayed at the airport for 24 hours. Was told that no hotel will be provided."
Cons: "Flight departed 2 hrs late. No jet blue personnel were at the gate for hours, and offered no assistance with connections or alternate arrangements. Never had such a poor experience."

Pros: "EVERY THING"
Pros: "The seats are wide with leg room, even on a center seat."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online, or at a kiosk, because my reservation couldn't be found. Of course, I did have one, and it took going to a counter to get it straightened out, but only after a loooong wait and then barely making it to the gate in time for boarding. Before a 90-minute delay."
Pros: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Loved the free Direct TV. Perfect for longer flights. Chose no food"
Cons: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Crew didn't enforce the 'upright & locked' in row ahead at landing"
Cons: "Even though the flight was delayed, and I had over an hour before take off, I was not permitted to board. In times past, I have flown American Airlines with no issues, JetBlue was extremely unaccommodating."
Cons: "We had mechanical problems prior to take off. Our flight was delayed for a couple of hours. Once inside the aircraft, we were kept there for an additional 2 1/2 hours before take off. We landed in Fort Lauderdale 5 hours later than the scheduled time. We got home at 5:00 AM. Unexeptable!!!!!!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful."
Pros: "I Enjoy Every Moment In Puerto Rico La Parguera En El Pueblo De Lajas , La Guancha En Ponce, Playa Crashboard En Aguadilla, El Faro En Rincon ,Playa Jobos En Isabela,Balneario De Boquerón En Cabo Rojo Me Encantan Las Playas El Agua Es Tan Clara Y La Arena Blanca ,Las Gente Es Muy Servicial."

Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hrs....they didn't even apologise or explain why."
Pros: "The seats. The Wi-FI. The price of ticket."
Cons: "The delays. No notice. Boarding delayed by 45 minutes. 20 more in bay after doors shut. "We are in 20th position for take-off. Another hour. Arr over 2 hrs. Late. Attendents disappeared for a few hours. Sad."
Cons: "I have never had so much trouble with a website/app as with JetBlue for this trip. Checking in was super stressful, since it was a short layover and I had to go through customs. There were few employees to help when I couldn't print my boarding pass, and when I handed my already checked bag off (it was checked through) without a boarding pass the JetBlue employee was extremely passive aggressive and acted like it was somehow my fault I hadn't been able to get it printed and there had been no one around to ask. The flight crew was highly professional and the flight was good, but I was pretty disappointed by customer service on the ground."
Pros: "More legroom, free wifi, free entertainment choices, unlimited drinks & snacks, on-time and efficient"
Cons: "1) Boarding process was not clear on the ticket or anywhere (really not a big deal). 2) When reading about perks and restrictions after we bought tickets, the company mentions certain "classes" of tickets..i.e. "Blue", "Blue Plus" and "Blue Flex" but since I had already bought our tickets, I had no idea which type of fare we bought, since Jet Blue does not provide that information on your ticket information once purchased."
Cons: "Tv didn't work"
Cons: "It's a shame there are so few options for travel to the caribbean from NYC these days. These carriers are charging entirely too much for a very average experience!!!!"
Pros: "The check in process with Jet Blue is always seamless and quick. Great communication. I enjoyed the free wi-fi and under-the-seat outlets. Also love how refreshments are available to grab at anytime."
Cons: "The sound on the movies, etc. is terrible! And half the time the screens don't work."
Pros: "The people who worked there were professional. The other passengers were nice."
Cons: "The seats, even the upgraded ones, didn't recline sufficiently to let my head drop back. This meant that for a period of four plus hours, I was stuck in an incredibly uncomfortable sitting position -- tilted slightly forward, via the placement of my head. And it also meant that the only way to try to sleep was by pitching forward over the tray, hunched forward in a way that didn't allow me to breathe fully. I tried slouching down, and it didn't help. The way that the lumbar was positioned also pushed me forward. The pillows were too small to lift my head much off the tray. Perhaps it's my height and weight. If I was shorter or taller or thinner, my options might have increased. Regardless, if the airlines are going to squish us together, they might consider how to give us some flexibility with regards to placement of back rests, like we have in cars -- adjustment of lumbar curve."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movie when it was on! I enjoyed the leg room as well! The plane was nice and new and I felt safe!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and I tried to switch flights to get on with my family since the flight was delayed and they wanted to charge me $600. The flight was cold so I purchased a blanket."
Pros: "Under seat outlets for the win."
Cons: "I was all good for an hour into my cross country flight when another passenger randomly took an empty seat in my row. I almost had the traveler's dream: an entire row to stretch out across!"
Cons: "Had to pay for snacks and blanket, which is ridiculous. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Flight was fine, once it departed."
Cons: "I arrived at JFK after 24 hours of travel from Myanmar. My JetBlue flight was delayed 5-1/4 hours. The delay was devastating."
Pros: "Free Wi-fi"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times and a major gate change, then sat on runway awaiting takeoff for 30+ mins."
Pros: "One pass through the aisle with drink and snack Never again"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Pros: "Kind crew member."
Pros: "Flight was so delayed car rental was closed seats did not recline therefore quite uncomfortable..."
Cons: "Todo muy bien"
Pros: "Very good price. Very good cabin. Very good crew."
Cons: "No free blankets. Snacks were not appropriate for a 5 to 6 hours flight."
Pros: "The tvs are nice. The selection of snacks the one time they came around was good. I also liked the phone charger ports."
Cons: "They only came around once on our 6 hour trip to offer snacks and drinks. I think a second round should have happened. Also our plane came into the wrong terminal so we had to walk over 20 minutes to the different terminal to get our luggage. They didn't really explain how to do that."
Pros: "Delayed 1.5 hrs, then sat on plane for two hours before being returned to the gate, re-boarded 45 mins later and sat on the plane another hour before finally taking off. We were supposed to leave at 10.40, we didn't leave till around 4."
Pros: "Fast, efficient, friendly service. Great crew"
Cons: "Overheard some of the crew members talking bad and/or making fun of a passenger...in front of other passengers! Also the movies were old."
Pros: "The flight was one of the best domestic flights I have ever taken. Amazingly helpful and courteous cabin crew, excellent customer service, great add-ons like free wifi and snacks. I think I will only be taking jet blue now, especially if the price remains somewhat similar to other carriers. It is simply the best."
Pros: "Nice staff, loved free wifi and tv streaming"

Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"

Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "Love it was very confortable make me feel safe"
Cons: "Food was ok by the could had improve. For example they should that have a vegetarian option I do not eat ham or pork"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating, poor service. I asked for and extra cup of water and they said no! I mean it's a 6 hour flight and we took the red eye. I would expect to atleast have drinks. Overall staff was very rude. Service was very poor and slow. Plus the seating is extremely uncomfortable no leg room no offer to up sell first class. Terrible flight company would never use again or recommend ever! Stay away there are plenty of other ways to get to Colombia. One positive is they did have a decent movie selection honestly that's the only thing. Other then that this company does not even deserve one star I will make sure to tell all my friends family and social media to never use this company"

Pros: "They were all very nice and helpful. We received two meals and snacks. I had a blanket and pillow. Couldn't complain."
Cons: "I had requested the wheel chair service due to my bad knee. When it came to boarding everything was great but when I got off the plane, no one brought the wheel chair. I ended up having to walk and hurt my knee further. They were suppose to help with my bags but I guess that's only in the USA"
Pros: "The personnel was excellent, they were friendly and very accommodating."
Cons: "The in- flight movies were not very good, perhaps contemplate on having choices for customers so that we select them."
Pros: "flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "Nice clean plane. Well dressed staff."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly or helpful. I could hear the group letter called out lond ,I wish there was a board I could have read them on."
Cons: "You guys booked my flight for the wrong date!"
Pros: "Crew service is very professional and froendly. They make sure we were comfortable and help us with our needs."
Pros: "Departure and arrival times were kept. I enjoyed the good attention during the flight."
Cons: "Delayed one hour"
Pros: "The flight attendant were very attentive and nice."
Cons: "The food was too salty. This is especially bad for me since I have high blood pressure."

Cons: "For that flight mobile check-in was not available. had to be done from a computer."
Pros: "the service is wonderful, I got on time to my destiny, even do I did not want to get off of the airplane, they have excellent service and a lot of details that make a long trip feel like a family trip."
Pros: "Great entertainment system for travelers"
Pros: "Its not the best expericen ever have too many problems whith the luggage"

Cons: "crew were condesending and unattending, food was very low quality, boarding took an hour. Lots and lots of room for improvement"
Pros: "Nothing at all ... better pay more than to fly with this airline"
Cons: "Everything ...nothing"
Pros: "Arrived in time and Departure too."
Pros: "Muy condimentada poco saludable"
Pros: "It was my first time flying and I almost missed my flight. I was at the wrong gate. When realized my mistake I started walking over to the right gate, and they were asking for me. They told me to run towards the plane entrance as it was almost departing. I later came to find out that they called my emergency contact to ask where I was. I feel that no other airline would have done this. For that reason I will only use Avianca Airlines to travel to Colombia, or other countries in South America."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the food on Avianca flights is always horrible. The breakfast (this was a red-eye) consisted of scrambled "eggs" and hashbrowns, neither of which was distinguishable from the other. I would rather them not serve food at all than have foreign visitors think this is the food that represents our country. Pro tip: eat beforehand and bring some snacks. Pretend to be asleep when they come by with the food trays."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Luggage has been lost and comminication around finding it had been poor"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "No habia vuelto a usar Avianca desde hace varios años por los costos de pasaje; en esta ocasion despues de haber encontrado estos a un precio comodo y mas razonable quede encantada con el servicio. Incluyendo el trato al cliente, la calidad y capacidad del avion por fuera y por dentro. En general la experiencia no fue nada de lo que recordaba de mis viajes anteriores con la aerolinea. Supero mis expectativas."
Pros: "Great service from boarding to landing"
Pros: "Flight is what we have come to think of as okay because nothing hurts"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "Delta is the best--I sat in a comfy seat (middle seat at that) and watched 3 movies during my flight. Couldn't be better!"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The smootheness of the flight."
Cons: "The fact that the passenger behind me is was kicking the back of my seat. And it wasn't even a child!"
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Female flight attendants were rude and acted like the passengers were a bother. Tried to move to an emergency row after the doors closed, which was empty and the flight attendant refused stating we had to pay extra. NOT HAPPY"
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Pros: "The entertainment is always great on delta and they have new snacks now!"
Cons: "Cabin service took a bit longer than normal and we were stuck on the tarmack for at least 30 mins waiting to take off. Not anyone’s fault, just annoying"
Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "Entertainment, newer plane, great crew. and complimentary meal? fantastic."
Cons: "I checked in 12 hours in advance for both trips and was assigned a B seat toward the back of the plane for both, with no capability to select my seats in advance."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Complimentary meal and entertainment, very good service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "Get a day in NYC"
Cons: "Two daytime flights booked so can't get to Bangor until the 9:00 pm flight tonight. Aitline only coveted one night at the hotel. Had to buy a second night so we don't have to carry our bags around all day."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "entertainment services"
Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "All went well with every aspect of the flight."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "Enjoy able"
Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Cons: "The quality of customer service and efficiency was lacking at the check in counter. Wrong information was given to many passengers as far as checking in baggage and being sent to several line ques for the agent to tell me in the end that I was told the information incorrectly since the beginning. I therefore was unable to board my flight on time, got switched to a new flight and the new flight was delayed for 3.5 hours."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Pros: "The crew was nice. It was a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work. Very long flight to not have entertainment. No plugs for personal devices. It looked like an older plane."
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Staff on ground at the panama airport was realy rude, lack of customer service"
Pros: "I had more space."
Cons: "Landing was rough"
Pros: "I paid extra for a seat in the exit row. It had a lot of legroom and was comfortable. The flight was smooth. It left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."
Pros: "They give me a lot of food with no extra money , that’s so great even beers :)"
Cons: "Everything was awesome keep doing the same great job thanks :)"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. Pleasant crew, food excellent. I will recommend this airline for future trips."
Cons: "More affordable especially because this was a last minute trip because of death in my family."
Cons: "We had a very early flight (1am) with an estimted arrival time at 6:30, but lights went on and breakfast was served at 5am- hard to get some rest!"
Cons: "I have tried to pay for and upgrade for my wife to fly with me in business class. The answer was that there were no seats available on the flight from JFK-PTY. But there were seats in the coneection flight from PTY-POA, because a passenger from Havana got businness seats without paying extra."
Cons: "Crying kicking baby in the seat behind mine ruined the flight."
Cons: "Lost one of my bags Food barely edible. Above was flight jfk to Panama City This flight had no tv that worked. Audio was broken."
Cons: "They completely damaged my luggage bags, so much for paying to check in to have it returned broken, thorn and without wheels. I want a reimbursement for the ticket or the cost of 2 new suitcases."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the airline personnel very polite and attentive. I recommend to my friends and family to choose Copa for their next flight."
Pros: "Copa was a great airline"
Cons: "The Panama airport was horrible! Was so hot and uncomfortable there was no air condition and no where to sit ! I will think twice before going through that airport!"
Pros: "Excellent service, on time!!!"
Pros: "Food was good, roomy seats"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June and when I went to check-in I was given a standby ticket and was told that the flight was overbooked, and that I should have done mobile check-in. I was very anxious that I did not have a seat, and that I would not be able to board the plane. They kept telling me at the gate that they would call me when they had a seat until I forced my way to the counter and handed them my boarding pass and said I need a seat now. Poor communication and disorganization."
Cons: "Poor costumer service . Luggage was wet . All of the clothes ruined"
Pros: "The food and drinks"
Cons: "Took a lot of time for takeoff"
Pros: "I liked the food and the crew's service"
Cons: "Seats that were not able to be moved from upright position. Those seats at least should have more space for legs and be given pillows or a way to make those passengers less uncomfortable. Movies were really old!"
Pros: "Services food on time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of space. Also served food. Everything was in time or early."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crowded in coach"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time. I had an exit row seat and the legroom was excellent."
Cons: "The economy class meal was quite meager, but I guess I should be thankful that they served a meal on a 4.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent. Food was good."
Cons: "I did not feel comfortable sitting in the seats I had enough room what the bottom was like I was sliding down hill."

Cons: "I did not like that the seats were a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "No Internet connection at tocumen airport"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made sure I was comfortable."
Cons: "Size of aircraft. Might opt for exit row next time. After business class I would suggest that you board from the rear so passengers don't have to stand and wait for others to put up carry on luggage before you can pass."
Pros: "Great Entertainment choices on this flight. I hardly even noticed the time passing."
Cons: "They didn't have any food I could eat, except for an incredibly small salad. The crew informed me that I could have requested a special meal 24 hrs in advance, but that information was sadly provided too late."
Pros: "Everything was very good. Excellent crew!"
Cons: "I ask for a blanket and they didn't have it."
Cons: "Ustedes cambiaron las fechas de nuestra reserva. Se hizo para el 9 de agosto. Y nosotros la pedimos para el 9 de julio. Cuando llamamos a cambiarla, salía más caro que comprar otro tiquete ida y vuelta. Yo tuve que comprar un tiquete por otra aerolínea para regresar de Nueva York a Medellín."
Pros: "Service on the leg to Panama City was great, but the flight was delayed about one hour in departure"
Cons: "Because of the delay leaving JFK, I missed my connection to Santiago and had to take a later fligjt in Economy and only received a $400 voucher"

Pros: "I liked the crew service, timing, prefesionalism!!"
Cons: "Food is not too good, I don't eat pork and seafood (cause allergies) and he the attendant couldn't tell me if the sausage was pork or beef. They need to be informed since an emergency could happen in the flight. Everything else, perfect."
Pros: "Crew was very understanding of our frustration and di the best they could do within their range(which wasn't much to be honest)"
Cons: "Poor job in the gate at boarding and with announces, we were held in the the runway for about an hour plus without proper indication of why, all the could say was "bad weather". Non-stop turbulence and food wasn't served until good 3 plus hours into the flight, (remember to add that to the time we were held at the runway as well). Entertainment on board was extremely limited."
Pros: "The seat was OK"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours on departure and the reason for the delay was never communicated. We had to move to another gate and board busses to take us to the plane which had been moved from the original gate. The meal was awful. The crew basically ignored us. And the luggage took 45 minutes to arrive at the carousel"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "We didn't get a beverage until two hours into the flight. Cookie meal and a ritual serve that once. No pre-beverage service or post dinner coffee service."
Pros: "Katherine was helping me perfectly with my extra luggage when I was doing my chek-in. She was helping me to pass security check because I was a bit late. really thankful."

Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable.With good choice of entertainment."
Cons: "There needs to be more translation to English."
Pros: "everything was fine"
Pros: "The service overall is great. The airplane is comfortable. Airport in Panama has very good service. I would take Copa again."

Pros: "Nice flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Aeromexico systems were down and multiple passengers had to be rechecked at the gate right before boarding."
Pros: "La puntualidad, la amabilidad del personal y la comodidad"
Cons: "Cambian la sala de espera para el abordaje de el avion sin previo aviso. La comida no fue un plato completo, si no que solo fue un refrigerio"
Cons: "Took us one hour to taxi out to the runway."
Cons: "With one hour to go, a man in my row in the AMPlus section (which costs extra for a bit more comfort in economy) was joined by his companion who started the flight in the back, the basic economy fare which does not cost extra.. I didn’t appreciate the fact that she got to sit up front without paying and that the AeroMexico crew did nothing to call her out or send her back. The lesson: Don’t pay the extra money for AM Plus. Just wait until no one is watching and move up front. No one cares—except your fellow passengers who paid for the added comfort."
Pros: "First class service from jfk to Mexico City was amazing. Loved the reclining seat and footrest. Well worth the price, great value"
Pros: "Un avión en buen estado con buena variedad de Filmes"
Cons: "Quedamos mucho tiempo esperando dentro del Avión antes del despegue y después del aterrizaje"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight, no entertaintment, no movies, headsets did not work, no air conditioning, poor service, bad food."
Pros: "Horrible! They changed my flight to much later. I’mnstill in mexitco city waiting for my flight to Lima. Hated it."
Cons: "It changed last minute. I was supposed to be in Lima for my dad’s surgery"
Pros: "Got to fly a newer Aeromexico plane. It's awesome. Tuve la oportunidad de volar en unos de los aviones nuevos. Excelente."
Cons: "Arrived 3 hours early to check in but no one was at the check in counter until an hour later. Llegue 3 horas antes para regrirstrarme pero nadie llegó hasta una hora despues."
Pros: "How it was organized, boarding system (it was not All at same time but passengers were divided into few groups and they were calling who will be boarding). Flight was Bang on time"
Cons: "Main food could be better prepared (fruit chopping)"
Pros: "Tons of food during the flight, you can still get alcoholic beverages without extra charges, very on time. Flight from here to Mexico was perfect. Now, on my way back, there was a 5 hour delay. The treatment was much better than other airlines, but it would have been better to let us know that we could track the plane from GDL. Now my only complaint regarding the small airplane from MTY to NYC is that the entertainment is provided via a mobile device, yet there's no ports for charging it, and there's no way a device will last that long, which made the whole excercise totally useless."
Pros: "Good seats - boating was smooth- crew was attentive"
Cons: "Earphone were garbage- seat didn’t recline enough- food was atrocious- cold ham/cheese sandwich for the entire flight"
Pros: "Counter help was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Buying through Vayamos, when initially going to AM website I was directed to go to Delta site. They rejected me, I called them, recording said they would call me back in more than 2 hours. Etc, etc A horrible experience."
Pros: "Great service , and very convenient"
Pros: "Comfortable and service was great!!"
Cons: "Forced me to check my 2nd bag @ $55 after already paying to check my first, despite it being a normal carry-on. Unusually rude and unhelpful from booking through check in service. In flight was ok, albeit an older plane. Worst aspect was booking through justfly.com; expect to get fleeced on extras and relegated to an unassigned middle seat and generally regarded like a second class citizen."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Airplane seemed a bit old."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were very professional, bilingual and smiled."
Pros: "A bigger lunch"
Cons: "Pay for second bag is very expensive (55 usd)"
Pros: "amazing plane large easy new"
Cons: "20 minute delay impacted my connecting flught"
Pros: "The crew kept us informed and the flight attendants were nice awesome plane!"
Cons: "They would not let me board the plan even though I made 30 minutes early. Our connecting flight was late. My bags made the flight and I wasn't allowed on."
Pros: "Food was good. In flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Food portion was slightly too small. Boarding crew (not on flight but in the terminal) was NOT nice-- I had a garment bag that in past experience does not count as an additional carry on since it can be placed on top of carry-on in overhead bin. Boarding crew member insisted I was over the limit (when though at check-in, the staffer saw how many pieces I had and made no comment) and she insisted I had to check one item AND pay the baggage fee. But this was a problem only because it was a full flight, and I was being punished just because my seat was in a tow closer to the front and boarded later, therefore there was less room left in the overhead bins. Also seemed ridiculous to charge for the first checked bag, with most other reputable airlines, there is no fee for the first checked bag for international flights."
Pros: "Pretty average experience. Did not like that first checked luggage was charged for an international flight."
Cons: "Food was by far the worst of any airline I’ve flown. It was unreal....the smell...wow."
Pros: "I liked the service and the food that was provided."
Cons: "My suitcase was ripped on the back"
Pros: "Dreamliner experience. Service on board"
Pros: "The flight was a Delta code share. It said non stop even though we had to change planes in Monterrey. It was unclear which terminal the flight departed from. A fellow passenger was given a boarding pass JFK to Guadalajara. In Monterrey they wouldn’t let him go through security. We went to the gate to find an agent to help. Of course there wasn’t one. I asked security to,page an agent. One arrived several minutes later, seemed to understand, and escorted him through security. On our return, the email I received to check in for the flight said we were flying JFK to Guadalajara. In fact we were flying the opposite. Clumsy and confusing. The food was dreadful (at least there was some?). The service onboard was courteous but not friendly. All four flights departed and arrived late. The jet bridge wouldn’t work on our arrival back at JFK and we were stuck on the plane another 30 minutes."
Cons: "Safety was good."
Pros: "It's an average flight with so much area of opportunities."
Cons: "The traffic waiting to take off."
Pros: "I have accommodations paid after having my flight canceled."
Cons: "Lack of organization and information which caused delays to passengers after having the flight canceled."
Cons: "we never even got on this flight"
Pros: "attention, service , time"
Pros: "I missed my flight but when I got to the gate, the staff was really helpful. They got me a seat on the next flight and gave me a voucher for food during the wait. I will definitely be flying Aeromexico again!"
Pros: "EverythING were great"
Cons: "I asked the agent to find us seats with Legroom as i am over 6'2 and mostly legs. he charged us $40 extra per ticket. the seat #'s were 10 E and F so we assumed it was a comfort plus seat.. NOPE! knees against the sat in front of me.. in the CENTER of a 9 seat row. the flight was sold out.. now place to Move.. FURIOUS and feeling ripped off!"
Pros: "From the boarding process all the way to arrival it was a great experience overall. Brand new planes with free up to date movies. The economy seats truly recline (to what i was very surprised) and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "There's absolutely nothing I didn't like about it."
Cons: "Terrible service."
Pros: "On time boarding and fast but good service."
Cons: "Not enough drinks offered"
Pros: "el atrrizaje fue excelente"
Cons: "La comida"
Cons: "Bad planning, the flight was cancelled after we were on board for 2 hours, they schedule a direct flight for the next day! Making me lose, time, plan and money"
Pros: "My experience was great. The plane was comfortable and I enjoyed the food and the entertainment provided."
Cons: "Checking in at JFK took a while."
Pros: "Aircraft is new and comfortable"
Cons: "Food was bad, even for airline standards."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about the flight."
Cons: "It was a red eye and meals were served. Why? It's an overnight flight!! Also, when booking my reservation I was not told there would be a meal. As I am a vegetarian I was not able to request one. So I was woken up to people talking and eating and I could not myself eat anything. The "dimmed" cabin lights were bright. Crew members were not respectful of passengers sleeping as they talked in normal voices. I also found it very rude that I asked a crew member for a pillow and he said they didn't have any without even checking. Which I don't believe. Overall it was an awful experience and I will never fly Aeromexico again. I am going to tell all my friends and family to never fly this airline."
Pros: "Entertainment on board."
Cons: "Staff at JFK's Aeromexico desk grossly incompetent: non-communicative, extremely slow and not very helpful."
Pros: "Flight attendants were not friendly or welcoming. Some were extremely short and I could easily tell they just did not want to be there. Food was terrible. aircraft did not offer wifi. Announcements were not clear. Announcements for boarding and all other changes were made in Spanish and rarely in English. If announcements were made in English it was made by recording device which were not clear. Will not be choosing Aeromexico again!!"
Cons: "Overall experience terrible."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and we arrived 30 mins ahead of schedule which was a plus. Would definitely fly withy then again. Plus they offered inflight meals"
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was not able to go on this trip because I recently found out I am pregnant and the risk due to the current Zika virus makes traveling out of the question. Aeromexico was NOT understanding at all. Their only offer was a 1 year voucher from the time I purchased my ticket. I purchased my ticket in October 2015 (before the Zika outbreak and before being pregnant) and I will still be pregnant in October 2016 so that voucher is completely useless to me. I basically lost $900. Even though I repeatedly tried to explain my situation to customer service and had a letter from my doctor it didn't matter they just repeated their voucher line over and over. Needless to say I will NEVER purchase airline tickets from Aeromexico again and that is a real shame for them because I have a timeshare in Mexico which I plan on enjoying with my growing family for years to come."
