Lots of time on the tarmac at both ends. LOTS of crew announcements that didn’t need to be made.
The flight was ok, the baggage claim took almost 2 hours. :(
Very satisfied with all aspects of my jet blue experience. Highly recommended.
Delayed with no updates and zero taking care of passengers
Crew was arrogant and obnoxious. Wouldn’t help me pick up trash and another poured coffee on me twice, with one pathetic “sorry”. Flight attendants had so much baggage that passengers couldn’t find space in the overhead compartments causing a significant delay in our departure. In bound aircraft was late arriving from Haiti exasperating the situation. Based on this trip I would not recommend jet blue to anyone
Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was perfect."
Pros: "Crews work really hard to serve all the passengers, thanks for the good service! I like the idea of serving the food first for the older and younger passengers I think that’s a great idea!"
Cons: "Keep up the good work! Bathroom is always clean and smells good!"
Cons: "Should have booked another airline."
Pros: "The Agents at the counter in the terminal gate were courteous."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because an attendant had to be swapped out, then the replacement was stuck in traffic for an hour (why not have all attendants ready on-airport?). Comically, we taxied on the runway for over an hour, which caused more delays with the plane needing to be de-iced. Figured I'd put all that behind me, but then the flight experienced one of the worst turbulences I've been in. We jerked through the skies many times, and the pilots weren't reassuring. Thankfully we landed okay, but not after being late by multiple hours. Also, JetBlue needs to invest in its planes, esp. its Couch section. I felt like a pretzel with on room to breathe."
Pros: "Jet blue has free potato chips and also allows you to watch television."
Cons: "Jet Blue provided 5 sequential delay messages over an hour. Their inability to better estimate departure is disappointing. The real problem is that delay was caused directly by the airline's incompetence. There were no weather issues, the takeoff spots were available. They simply failed to load snacks. Although there WAS a minor prior delay bc a slightly late plane arrival, we eventually were delayed about an extra hour to supply snacks on a 4-hr flight. Given the ground crew had EXTRA time to load and also considering the tiny set of options offered, this is senseless. Further, b/c they ran out of overhead bins, they offered to GATE check my luggage. This was essentially a lie - they put it with checked bags, unlike the gate checked items I watched others retrieve. The combination of these errors led me to arrive at the car rental desk after closure. This caused me to incur a taxi fare, so spend 30 min or so working out an alternative rental the following day, and then yet ANOTHER cab to the Car Desk to get the car. This is the only time in my hundred or so car rentals anything like this has happened. I will certainly think twice (or more) before booking Jet Blue again."
Pros: "Captain ended up being a good pilot with a very smooth landing,"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the crew was comprised of members from flights delayed by the snowstorm. Even though gate attendants knew they were on their way, attendants refused to let us board until the crew was all on board. Then we had to wait some more....... Also they were lax on pre-boarding announcements, not letting families with children on first. And waiting until each group was fully boarded before announcing the next. Plus the enunciation of various announcements was difficult to understand and/or way too fast. It wasn't funny."
Pros: "On time, lots of leg room, good snacks and drinks"
Cons: "I was the last group to board and there wasn’t a place to put my small carryon in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Pretty average JetBlue flight. I love the direct TV and wifi"
Cons: "Annoying and time consuming to discover that I couldn’t check in for my flight anywhere besides the counter at JFK because I had two layovers and that JetBlue and Hawaiian had completely different itineraries for me. And then when the flight attendant who checked me in mocked my 2 layover itinerary and said there was a direct flight to HNL from JFK leaving later that morning, she at least could have tried to sell me a seat on that flight, rather than rudely laugh at me “I guess you can only do what you can do” like I was too poor or something. That was annoying. I’m bored of the JetBlue snack selection it’s been the same for years."
Pros: "The Jetblue lounge at JFK.. and the TV was pretty nice"
Cons: "To start, the plane was delayed due to inflight crew getting in late which is fine.. but our departure time never updated and the attendants were transparent but never mentioned a new time. After onboarding we got stuck on the tarmac due to traffic. Flight took off with turbulence to start and finally after 45 mins we got bottles of water. I asked crew if they would come around with more... I was starving and also have the perk of free alcoholic beverages in flight. I was offered neither and we only received chips 1+ hour into the flight. One of our TVs broke and the crew wasn’t helpful in an alternative... Overall worst Jetblue exp I’ve had to date, and I’ve flown with them a lot due to my Mosaic status.."
Pros: "L'espace dans l'avion - c'est la 1ère fois que j'en ai autant en classe éco ! Le personnel de bord, vraiment adorable, drôle et à l'écoute"
Cons: "Pas de distraction et collation limitée. Mais c'est vraiment un détail !"
Cons: "When I arrived at JFK after 14 hours long flight on Emirates, the service counter was understaffed with 1 hour long lines! Un-acceptable! Especially, since all I needed is to re-print my boarding pass, because US TSA would not accept the boarding pass printed by Emirates in India. The kiosk would not recognize my name on reservation! The kiosk did not recognize my recently issued US passport! Bloody annoying! Only able to print the pass after keying reservation code - yet, again not acceptable! The other, earlier attempts should have recognized me and found my reservation! Very upset with quality of service on the ground!"
Pros: "The atmosphere was just right for flying except when I entered the Aircraft I was totally turned off when I encountered a woman and her child and her carry-on pieces was already established in my seat 2A. She did move when I requested but what got me annoyed she had me locked in my seat because all her belongings remained in the passage way making it difficult to make my way to the restroom. IN MY OPINION THIS WAS A SAFETY HAZARD. I had every reason to suspect that she is known to the captain because he came to greet her. ERROLD"
Cons: "NO EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON ENSURING THAT SAFETY IS CARRIED OUT. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL TRAVELLING EXPERIENCES ON A VARIETY OF AIRLINES AND THIS WAS THE WORST FOR SAFETY. UNFORTUNATELY I HAD TO MAKE USE OF THE RESTROOM AND HAD TO BE USING MY ATHELETIC SKILS TO GET BY. THIS REALLY SPOILT MY FLIGHT. MY FLIGHT # WAS 881 TO ST. LUCIA SEAT 2A. SAFETY SHOULD NEVER BE COMPROMISED EVEN IF FRIENDSHIP IS INVOLVED."
Pros: "Price of ticket is about it."
Cons: "From the time I got to the gate 90 minutes before flight to the time I got off it was terrable. Delays before boarding with no explanation then the same continued onboarding. First it was waiting for bags. Strange when there's a 2 hour+ delay that all the bags weren't there? Then waiting for paperwork followed by the part they needed was incorrect and a new one was on it's way from the hanger.. Finally departed 1 hour plus later. The plane was an old cattle car. Free TV didn't work right, so at did not recline (no it wasn't an exit row.). Most of the crew and gate attendants were rude and indifferent except for on flight attendant. The entire row of seats didn't recline at all. She was very apologetic and acknowledged it was uncomfortable especially on a 5+hour flight. She did offer us something to eat, blankets earbud. Still my back was killing me upon arrival at Phoenix. JEt Blue. Get your act together. This is unacceptable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6hrs 30 mins and changed departure gate twice. At no point was there a gate change announcement overhead (there were gate change announcements made for flights to Bermuda, Boston and San Francisco). During the boarding process many people stood and went in before their group was called, one agent noticed it and told the agent checking the boarding passes “all of these people are group A?” To which the other agent replied: “no, but I can’t do anything about it”. If there are group assignments, they need to honor that, as some people pay to board earlier."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "They didn’t make me check my carry-on even though full flight. Other airlines almost always do. Began boarding exactly when they said they would."
Cons: "First attempt to check im at kiosk failed. Was told to see an agent. Ignored that command made another attempt at kiosk and was able to get BP. The brag about their free wifi at every seat but it didn’t work. Can’t complain tho because seat back video screen had plenty of other entertainment."
Pros: "Unpleasant. I requested some water, it arrived far too late. I stated I had diarrhea. The staff stated “Take your seat.” I stated I was under a doctors care for some injuries, I needed to be able to stretch my hip.” Once again the staff stated “take your seat.” The staff was rude, condescending, seemed annoyed and angry with having to do their job. I declare under penalty of perjury the formentioned is true and correct under the laws of the state of California. Karen Schuber"
Cons: "See above please."
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."
Cons: "The flight took off two hours late. We were suppose to arrive at our destination at twenty minutes after midnight, and instead did not arrive until 2:30 a.m. You felt like the pilot got on the plane when you did with no planning involved on how to get to Austin. I later learned that Jet Blue has the worst on time record of all the airlines. And you got nothing to compensate you for the inconvenience. I am really disappointed in Kayak for not making it known on our ticket that we were flying from New York to Austin on Jet Blue. When buying my tickets on Kayak, it appeared on my itinerary that all my flights were on Iceland Air. It was very confusing to me, as I don't travel very frequently. And airport staff is not very helpful when you are in this situation. Due to all the confusion, I will probably use another airline search tool for my next trip to see if I can lessen the confusion."
Pros: "Seating is spacious, food was okay, entertainment was sufficient but not the best. Overall I was impressed with Jet Blue and will most likely fly with them again in future."
Cons: "Didn't like a huge argument taking place between one family which held the flight up by at least 30 minutes. The crew were very patient with this family, but the passengers were not. I think the family should have been removed and asked to take another flight so that my flight could leave on time. It made everyone very nervous because we didn't know to what extent this conflict would escalate, so we had to sit listening to 3 or 4 members of the family arguing and constantly removing passports from luggage and going back and forth in and out of the plane. One member of this family actually entered the cockpit, which unnerved me because of the risks with terrorists these days. The family appeared to be of muslim descent."
Cons: "I was delayed half a dozen times, only to be canceled. Rescheduled on a flight that was scheduled to depart two hours before the original flight. Rescheduled after an hour hold. That flight was delayed the following day. Was diverted to Baltimore only to find out only some of us on our flight are getting out by a rude agent. Then no information at all. Had to run to catch an amtrak. Later found out if I stayed I would have stayed another 13 hours in Baltimore. Missed work and had no one home to take care of my family. Oh, and travel insurance will not cover anything. The plane itself was falling apart. Seat was broken and dirty. Everyones lights were broken and it smelled."
Pros: "Literally the worst flight I’ve ever been on in my life."
Cons: "We were seated behind a woman who brought a sick cat into the flight. The stench of cat feces was overwhelming. When we addressed it with the staff, they were incredibly rude. I also shared that I had a very significant cat allergy. The staff continued to be incredibly rude, and eventually offered a single seat in the back, which would not accommodate the two of us. The woman next to us also expressed her extreme discomfort and was condescended and disrespected, as well. Shocking, miserable experience."
Pros: "The entertament options from new releases to tv shows was good .."
Cons: "The staff was disorganized and seemed a bit frantic at one point they announce a need for a doctor on board .. we where never told that the passanger was allright .. There was a chilld who sat behind me that kick my chair the entire time and stuck his hands in between which where sticky in between the seat over and over again grabbing me he was loud and sick with what seem to be a cold and kept touching me though the seat would not listen to the adult that was with him i understand that he is a child but this went on the entire flight which was over five hours my back is still not ok .. snacks where serve late into the filght once.. staff was not friendly..."
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"
Pros: "Virtually nothing."
Cons: "Direct TV didn't work -- provided only one station, with a constant scroll across the bottom of the screen promoting the imminent start of movies that we're impossible to access. And even this one station would disappear from time to time. None of the seat-mounted controls worked -- including channel, volume, brightness, and music. And you couldn't even turn the damned thing off so it glowed in your face all through the overnight flight. In short, a terribly boring 6.5 hours aloft in terribly uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time."
Pros: "The convenience of landing and being so close to home. Only wished there were more flights avail with better times."
Cons: "1) The time of this flight is a bit much. I understand that it is close to my home but I know if Jet Blue adds 1 or 2 more flights, they would totally get booked up. The leaving JFK at almost midnight and then the time difference is horrible. 2)This flight had a child that got sick and we were delayed about 40-45 mins. Totally worth it but it made for an even harder time getting in at almost 630am PR time. 3) The turbulence was horrible. We were warned but so many customers were getting sick. Its was unpleasant to say the least."
Pros: "Ease of check in and boarding."
Cons: "Seats do not recline and very little leg room, not a comfortable 6 hour flight for someone who is 6 feet tall."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hrs. Not the airline's fault but waited in the help line for over an hr before the agent told me there was no earlier flight I could be placed on - she was incorrect. Pointed out that there was another flight that had also been delayed and therefore hadn't left yet - she agreed, put me on standby. At the gate, the boarding crew did not know what they were doing. The plane was 20% empty but crew made situation very hectic by giving standby passengers seats, taking them away, and then realizing there was actually enough room on the plane. Crew was friendly but incompetent in terms of problem solving."
Cons: "First thing, when i arrived to check my bags the lady giving help was useless, i was really stressed and i asked her some questions and she was answering upset, then i found a guy who help me to do my things there. In the boarding there wasn't any space for my things, my carry on bag and my personal item .. i was trying to get some help to one of the guys working inside the plane because the top compartment was full, when i ask him he just say that space is for all in the plane isn't suppose to be space for you there if some other guest took it.. I was really upset because i paid for my flight ticket and it was included my carry on and my personal item.. otherwise i know there is more people in the plane but is not like i brought more things than the ones i paid for... if you don't have capacity for all the guest you should say it before... The flight was delayed with an hour.."
Cons: "TSA held me up with a 30 minute bag check so I arrived for an 11:30 AM flight at 11:16 AM. I was told that because I was a minute late they wouldn't let me on even though the plane was still in the runway and connected to the terminal. I asked to speak to a supervisor and the agent disappeared for 10 minutes while the plane took off. I then went to go speak to a customer service agent who wouldn't even look at me while I spoke. She actually started listening to and talking with another agent while I was talking to her. Then when I was finished, she started arguing with me until another agent said "he's not worth it." JetBlue just lost my business."
Pros: "The crew was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was over two hours late. No excuse was given. Original Departure time was 9:30pm. Was receiving alerts beginning from that morning notifying of delays which continued as I waited at the airport that night. This seems to happen frequently and nothing is ever done to make it up to travelers. On the plane, the audio for the tv had static so you couldn't actually hear anything. It doesn't seem like you can turn the tvs off, which is annoying as they emit light, so if you want to sleep you have to deal with the light from your tv."
Cons: "They don't have free meal services and they ran out of the meals you can purchase, we weren't pleased"
Pros: "We got to our final destination."
Cons: "We needed to wait for "just a few minutes." The Captain said. Then, no other communication at all and we left over an hour late for a 45-minute flight, no explanation. I hate when they leave you in the dark and aren't upfront. The connection from Emirates to JetBlue we had was almost impossible. Two healthy adults, arriving on time in NYC with two hours to make a connection. With walking as fast as possible and not even going to the bathroom, we barely made the flight. Customs. Change terminals. Go through security again. ridiculous."
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."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to spend $300.00 USD on a hotel!!!"
Cons: "Too cold and noxious fumes prior to take-off which was delayed nearly 2 hours."
Pros: "I liked the spacious seating of course"
Cons: "I was disappointed in the boarding, I traveled with my young daughter and infant son and when they announced those who require additional time, handicap assistance,etc I proceeded to board then all these other folks also jumped up skipping me and my children when it was not their turn. And the gate people allowed them to do so I had to be the one to say excuse me we were here 1st. On top of that when we landed back in NY I heard my stroller get tossed and discovered when I got home it was broke. So upset!!!"
Pros: "Crew always pretty good with Jet Blue. You generally know what you are going to get."
Cons: "One of the primary reasons we go Jet Blue is for the TV's and they rarely work consistently. Also... 1) their Wifi is very inconsistent and 2) when are they going to get current and put some outlets or USB ports for charging?"
Cons: "No wheelchair assistance provided even though we had requested for while booking the ticket."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Everything about the stews reflected that they'd much rather be somewhere else. Boarding was made into a ceremony worthy of the Papal Stations of the Cross - for God's sake, you were only boarding 40-odd people! Food...??? You're willing to SELL me junk food, water?!!! Far and away the worst aspect of this flight, though, was the ticket counter personnel, timing, process-boundness. A. the counter did not open until 0930 for an 1130 flight....you require me to be present 2 hours prior to takeoff, yet your people are not available to service B. the woman at the counter forced me to check luggage that I have carried onboard aircraft all over the world with no flack from anybody, my protestations notwithstanding C. she then explained that our checked luggage could and would not be checked through to our final destination and when I protested that I had had no such issues coming east and could not understand why we were having this conversation, she referred me to "policy." Malarkey. Want to hear something funny? The bags ended up being checked all the way, making my departure from the secure area to claim my bags at JFK pointless, and necessitating my submitting to security lines and scrutiny once again. As I said to my wife at the time of this debacle, if Aer Lingus is the only airline flying US-UK and a rowboat is my only alternative, please pass me the oars."
Pros: "Good boarding process. Comfortable seats with decent leg space."
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "The crew wasnt nice"
Cons: "The organisation. Letting know to people about the documents required to access in a country by email in advance."
Pros: "Boarding process, inflight service"
Cons: "Flight was canceled, was booked on flight 812, that flight was also canceled. I didn’t get to Quito until 24 hours later. Customer service was terrible in terms of providing accurate information to passengers."
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 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: "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: "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."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Limited movie selection"
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: "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: "No costumer service prepare to help, got to jfk at 2pm and counter was close for a flight that left one hour and half later. AIRLINE WILL Over sell ticket and left 4 family besides my family at the counter . WHENT MOST I IN TERNATIONAL FLIGHS ALLOUD YOU TO BOARD UP TO 1 HOUR BERFOE"
Cons: "No I'm at my destination and I'm no alloud to use my returt flyght"
Pros: "The welcoming and attentive service"
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."
Pros: "boarding was smooth as silk"
Cons: "vegetarian food options would be nice"
Pros: "This was a nice experience for a fairly typical airline. Meaning, not Emirates, Qantas, or the others that are supposed to be top-notch. To be fair, I haven't flown them, I'm just thinking of things I've heard and read. The seat was fine and typical as far as leg room and reclining goes. The food was what you'd expect on an airline (it was fine, but I don't despise airline food). The crew though, was wonderful. Really. Friendly, welcoming...I bothered one attendant a couple times for more water as I was very thirsty, and then asked for a beer after the beverage service was over. Often flight attendants will act as if you're demanding a foot massage or something, but this particular guy was very nice. All of the crew that I interacted with was just lovely."
Cons: "A flight of this duration should really have wifi access."
Pros: "Easy connection. Very sharp. My mom felt so fine."
Cons: "I had to keep my backpack in front under the seat. They should not allow heavy carry on's"
Cons: "They canceled it."
Cons: "Me rompieron la maleta y la otra abrieron de un costado y sacaron algo encima me cancelan el vuelo me ponen más temprano pero en Panama me hicieron esperar 10 horas si me cambiaron debieron cambiarme tmb"
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "We were late to bord, therefore we were 1 late for rake off, on top of that a passagenger got sick on the plane and the way the staff managed the situation was very poor. Missed my connection. Hade a very bad experience, and more likely, I will not fly or recomend Copa"
Cons: "The connecting flight rush."
Pros: "Nicely equipped, modern planes and a great crew."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."
Cons: "They do not have a way to order vegetarian food on their website so I did not eat on either flight, which was really frustrating."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They should load plane from back to front. You wouldn’t have the congestion of people in the isle while you trying to get to the back of the plane. Just my opinion. Load first class. Then load the back of the plane first."
Pros: "Ultimately the guest services supervisor at the PTY airport she talked and acted decently. Wish others would follow her example"
Cons: "More training. Improvement in operational detail. More respect for customers - does not mean always spending more but empathy and effective planning"
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."
Cons: "My bags seem to have been misplaced! I look forward to Copa getting back to me about their location so that I can retrieve them."
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: "Short plane ride"
Cons: "Second plane from panama to Costa Rica, the crew embarressed me and my friend and I will never fly on that airline again if Sandie Machida ever works on it. She is the ruddiest and most unprofessional flight attendant and needs extra lessons on costumer service and how she hosts guests."
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."
Cons: "Breakfast (especially egg) was inedible. I choose aisle seat in advance (laptop) but finally I was in a window seat."
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: "On time and friendly staff."
Cons: "I was sitting next to the window and it was pretty hot. The air was not really working."
Cons: "when we got to the airport, we were told we had NO TICKET!!!"
Pros: "Cleaned, efficient and on time - best flight to Georgetown is have tried"
Cons: "Limited personal entertainment but not a real issue on short flights like this"
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 hours early and they had us line up in a Very slow moving line. When we finally reached the front an hour had gone by and the customer service rep then said we must have an exit flight from Guyana to get our boarding pass. This is the first we'd heard of this although we had researched visa requirements, etc for Guyana. We stepped out of line and quickly booked a flight on our phone, but when we tried to jump back in again the attendant made us wait in line again (a shorter one, but not smart considering the time crunch at that point. Finally we got to the front again and the attendant was very slow about entering our information. Then suddenly she calmly noted, "oh, it's too late to check you in, you can't make this flight." ... We were upset to say the least and after pestering her further about a reimbursement she said we would have to wait until she dealt with all the other customers (a long line of an hour or more) and that she couldn't put us on the next few flights because they were full. Finally she let us borrow her phone so that WE could call customer service and try to deal with it. They of course gave us the run around and we still don't have a reimbursement and will likely never book with Copa airlines again. Hopefully after a few more phone calls we can eventually get reimbursed. :("
Pros: "Utencils were metal, which means you guys are eco friendly. The unsuccesfull web check in made it faster for me to do the front fesk check in."
Cons: "The two times I try to do check in with COPA, NEVER allows me choose my seat. The reasult, bad seats where I really feel uncomfortable, next to the restrooms where all the smells and noise is. No blanquets for a 5 hour overnight, reasult a cold flight. Mmm not nice at all if your flight is at 2 AM."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Not complain was very good"
Pros: "It was a good flight, crew members behavior was professional, jfk ticket agent was superb. An overall it was good will not hesitate to fly with copa again."
Cons: "The food service was a little late in coach, first class was served as soon as we took off, it made us look and feel very cheap on coach."
Pros: "safe and courteous"
Cons: "leaving on time"
Pros: "The crew were up and down making sure everyone was comfortable and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "When a flight is full they shld pick out those other hand luggages and tag them to be placed along with the other suitcases.So to expedite smoother boarding and not standing in line waiting to go for your seat when someone else looking for head room to place there stuff."
Pros: "Lots of leg room despite being at the very last row. The seats even could recline a fair amount. Hot breakfast, with good food."
Cons: "Not the newest equipment. The plane was delayed. Everyone was friendly so it didn't matter too much."
Pros: "Loved the real trini food that was served outbound"
Cons: "Could see the monitor properly"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good food"
Cons: "Little or no entertainment"
Pros: "It was an good trip"

Pros: "I didn't get my suitcase I was told I would get it later the same day That didn't happen The next day I was again told it would be delivered to to me It wasn't I had to call again the following day Absolutely ridiculous!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "I am clearly pregnant and a woman whom works for Caribbean airlines asked me to hold my own bags as my husband wasn't allowed to carry on the plane more then two pieces. she REFUSED to let us through till he gave me the bag to carry. I told her I was pregnant even hold my stomach as she can see. That was so shocking to me. Please keep in mind this isn't a security check point we went through all with no problem.This is boarding after you have you ticket scanned and they are boarding row by row. The seats were small and uncomfortable. I flew home on a hospitable airline JETBLUE. Better seats, better snacks, better overall experience"
Pros: "There was nothing to like but the staff when I got on the plane"
Cons: "First time I ever experienced this when my passport got taking and your staff going to tell mi that's on mi when it's on video and your staff going to tell mi that the money I paid for my ticket it's just my lost and I can go on the play but they finally listen and found the man who stole or took my passport"
Cons: "Airplane's overall conditions were mediocre. Toilets were extremely dirty. Seats were quite uncomfortable. Even the first class section wasn't worth the upgrade. Was unable to book vegetarian option for food. Can't imagine why they assume everyone eats chicken. I'd think twice before flying Caribbean."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that the fares are none transferable to family members. I like the fact that I can travel very early in the morning. I'm thinking of changing companies,it is hard to come up with so much money, and reasons a raises and you can't make the trip you should allow to transfer it to your family members at least.smh"
Pros: "I liked that the crew was very helpful and courteous during our time of sickness."
Cons: "The plane was hot and humid, food poisoned my sister."
Pros: "The staff was very good"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat not as comfortable as a business class seat should be"
Pros: "Pilot did an excellent job at departing and landing"
Cons: "Nothing at the top of my head"
Pros: "I appreciated the assistance that I got from the staff on the floor at the airport and the porter that helped to get my mother a wheelchair and get her from the car and checked in without much assistance from me. Mom, was traveling alone and it was difficult for me to get her from the car and inside without leaving my car unattended in a tow away zone."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, really cannot complain"
Cons: "Liat-slowest Servise Im ever had , 5 people in line was waiting over an 1.5 an hour !"
Pros: "The overall service"
Cons: "The boarding process took too long. After pre-boarding they called for persons seated from row 15 and higher, that was the majority of persons and so we ended up being in line for quite a few minutes."
Pros: "I liked the food and the crew were lovely"
Cons: "The cabin was a bit run down and the boarding process was very unclear, but I think that's more on JFK than anyone else"
Pros: "The service and arrangements were satisfactory. Apart from circumstances that were beyond their control, the experience was good."
Pros: "Just about nothing."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and dirty. Basically everything that you could imagine making you miserable on a flight existed. The crew on board were fine. The meals were a hot sandwich with some pretzels."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Security check once arriving in Piarco"
Cons: "The food/breakfast was poor. Two unaccompanied minors in front of me was loud and always fighting. Seats didnt go back no foot rest and the ear buds didnt fit ear."
Pros: "the food given on the airline was great especially since it was hot the flight attendants were pleasants"
Cons: "the seats were comfortable if i were told how far back my seat was , i would have changed me seats"
Pros: "The flight home. First time flying with a female pilot. Comfortable."
Pros: "I was a bit skeptical after reading the reviews and wanted to cancel my flight, but Charmain_Marie convinced me to give CAL a try for myself and I did. It was an excellent trip from web check-in to reaching to the airport and check-in luggage. The flight crew was very polite, warm meal, tea or drink. Pilot was great, flight was great apart from a few turbulence. We reached our destination five minutes before scheduled time. So overall my trip from JFK to KIN was excellent I have nothing to complain about. Experienced things for "yourself" don't rely on the reviews that you read because if I did, I would have cancelled my flight. Thank-you CAL for my marvelous experience with you and you just gained a new customer. They say one bad apple spoil the bunch, but if you didn't have a bad experience with CAL don't follow the few that may have maybe because they don't adhere to rules and regulations. And yes TSA do check bags for security reasons because my TV was opened for inspection to see if it was ok and resealed with the TSA inspection card inside, nothing was missing from my luggage's. Thanks CAL excellent experience with you guys."
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "There was nothing , not to like"
Pros: "Highly professional and warm personal service from the flight attendants."
Pros: "The crew was no car and patient."
Cons: "The flight was very bumpy and was dipping a lot through most of the flight. It was very nerve racking. The pilots got us to our destination safe and sound. I am very thankful."
Pros: "Food was OK and price was reasonable"
Cons: "Personnel are check in was so abrupt and unprofessional and spent most of his time chatting with other staff. They were so unhelpful and unpleasant. I was not even greeted upon arriving at the counter first word out of his mouth was passport that's it. We had a long delay and crew didn't even offer us drinks in first class until we were almost ready to take off."
Pros: "The schedule of the flight was good"
Cons: "- pushy flight crew and not responsive - the pilot missed the landing at Cheddi Jagan airport twice because of bad weather and then told us that he would have to land in Piarco if he didn't make the landing on the third attempt. What pilot does that? I thought it was a joke at first but it was real. I have been traveling back and forth to Guyana for over 20 years and this was a first. Pilots have said in the past that there is bad weather but not attempt to land. Startling customers saying that you missed the landing is the completely not the way to go."
Pros: "The food was good and the cabin crew were wonderful."
Cons: "The delay at JFK was unexpected. The gate change was not announced. The flight itself was a disaster and the captain said nothing during the prolonged experience of turbulence."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Everything was absolutely perfect they leave early .on coming back we arrived early also the crew was friendly l would fly with them again and again thanks carribean air lines"
Cons: "Love everything"
Cons: "My seat was a middle seat and that was NOT what I chose when I purchased the flight. I'm 5'11 and I was squished in between two men. If you are going to change seat assignments then you need to notify the customer."
Pros: "On time, good breakfast and air hostesses were on point"
Pros: "I really liked the fact that they were on time. No issues with checking in, boarding, in flight and landing...thank God."
Cons: "They showed movie, however it didn't work. The sound was horrible and the headphone didn't sit well in the socket."
Pros: "Every thing was great"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The on time boarding and departure."
Cons: "How tight the seating and space are."
Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, the lines were so crazy that luckily we checked in online which allowed us to go to a separate line. My sister and I decided to upgrade to first class and it was downhill afterwards. I understand that their was severe turbulance and Thank God for the crew and getting us out. The problem was there they ran out of food for first class and no wine was offered. Nothing that would be considered as first class. My sister had to ask for water. No amends were made. DId not enjoy at all."
Pros: "Didn't think we would be offered a meal for a 4 hour flight but we did. Soft drinks and alcohol was free which was a big bonus. Condition of the plane and seats were good. The staff were super friendly. Overall a great service."
Pros: "The overall service was excellent I will fly with Caribbean airline any day thanks Caribbean airline for the fantastic service!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, I am a vegetarian and did not order a vegetarian meal but the staff made it so very easy for me."
Cons: "I was trying to do a web check in and while it seems possible I was sent in circles and was still not able to check in online. I was very frustrated with their online process, but then I consoled myself because I am very aware of the unconscious attitude of Trinidad services."
Cons: "The fact that there was a huge scramble with reservations....My flight was 2 pm, however, passengers who were present for the 4pm flight was allowed to board ahead of folks who were there for the 2pm flight."
Pros: "I miss my flight and I had to buy another ticket to get home,where I was it was so difficult to get through to customer service.Why couldn"t I pay a fee instead of taking all my hard earn money and don't home.my niece had to buy me a one way on another airline so I could get home.That was terrible,even if I use poor to describe the treating that is an understatement.i will not ride that airline again,and I am going to write you up all over the media.Neville."
Two meals were served in the First class during 9hr long flight! Great for domestic!!! Mai Tai drink was excellent!
Did not see any way to order a vegan meal during the ticket purchase or checkin process. There were no vegan meal options offered on the plane making the trip a long hungry one. Other than that, the crew was very good and the flight was very smooth and on time.
It left on time and arrived a few minutes early. The whole process of checking in, seating (got my upgrade thankfully!), and the meals (superb multi-grain healthy salad) were great. It arrived on time (actually a few minutes early). American continue to keep up its promise of customer service. I love being part of the American traveller family.
I didn’t like that they keep changing stuff of the trip, like the flight it self from Guayaquil to Nyc i did a stupid scale to chicago, and one dat before my return trip they change the bag polite
We get late flying from JFJ and we missed the conection in London.
With all the service cutbacks, flying is not a joyous experience anymore.
Cons: "Good flight"
Cons: "When my husband retrieved his piece of luggage, it smelled terribly lie dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows all the way down because the stench was so bad and throw away the suitcase I had just bought because of the terrible smell. Just awful to come home to that!"
Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"
Pros: "Dinner and boarding"
Cons: "Seats, noise and kids running, walking and CRAWLING in the aisles and lack of wifi and entertainment that I can choose, Also, the bathrooms ran out of paper and the crew was not attentive. They didn't do anything about the kids disruptive behavior and extremely load talking (reciting abc and counting). I asked if they could talk to the parents and they said no, the beverage service was not good as I couldn't get more water and the seats were awful! Why wasnt the wifi working? even if it worked I'd have to purchase it even tho it was an international flight. I will not fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "The sound on the entertainment system in my seat didn't work well. Also, the flight was really late getting in to Denver."
Cons: "My seat was broken and would not recline, i mentioned it to the stewardness and even though there were other empty seats they did not offer to move me."
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Pros: "arrival to the destination"
Cons: "booking through kayak was a nightmare. they serve no purpose othan than to collect a fee and add zero value and provide no support after the transaction. it is pointless to use this service as no one at Kayak can help you after the purchase, and we all know airlines are useless when it comes fo customer service. never again! american airlines was even worse with their customer service when trying to get seat selections preserved when the airline was updated from British to American airlines. American airlines lied over the phone and was even more rude in person. JOKE"
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Pros: "Veggie Asian meal was great - curry."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Seven hours siting in a fridge. Asked stewardess to turn it up. She didn't."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time. Because airlines have so games their system by setting expectations of on time arrival so low that it is nearly impossible to not exceed them."
Cons: "The plane was so old the overhead lights didn’t work in our section (who failed to check that??). The overhead bins fell open at landing and things almost fell on people’s heads. There was subpar entertainment options that hadn’t been updated since at least the 90s, which was made even less acceptable since it was literally the only option for entertainment on a 7+ hour flight when none of the overhead lights worked. For a ticket that cost more than $1200, the failure of the airline on nearly all levels to provide standard services was completely unacceptable."
Pros: "I needed special assistance due to limit of mobility and I have been refused assistance twice"
Cons: "On the top of that my luggage was damaged"
Pros: "Went on time and looked after very well"
Cons: "Going over leg room, a bit tight"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "Kayak is taking people’s money by selling airlines tickets of airlines that doesn’t exist. I bought tickets for some airlines called Finnair and end up in the worse airline there is “American Airline” this is Not fare for clients, I refuse to flight Americans Airline, if I would have known I would have not buy this flight. 7 hours in a plane with no TV, no free drinks and the worse service. This is a trick, by using Finnair and then end up in AA! There is no Finnair, this is a lie! I am so disappointed about Kayak and won’t use it again. Thank you for rob me and trick me into the worse experience!"
Cons: "The trick the kayak used to put me in American Airlines, the worse Airline there is."
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."
Pros: "The Flight Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Business class, Boeing 767-300 The seating configuration was 1/2/1 I would give these seats on a scale from 1 to 10 a 5, this was a very basic B/C seat, without a TV screen integrated to the seat in front of you, instead the flight crew hand out individual passenger entertainment systems, that are a pain to deal with and get in the way of everything your trying to do (ie eat, work, sleep.) I’m only 5’9 and I found when the seat was in the bed mode, the seat slopped down very slightly, and your feet would end up underneath the side table to the row of seats in front of you. As i wear a size 13 shoe, i found that space to be rather cramped especially for my feet."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice, boarding was calm, we got there much earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "1) Biggest complaint is not about the actual flight we were on, but the one we missed, who left the gate Early, even though they knew we had landed and other people from our BCN to JFK flight made it. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING, esp since all other flights to DC out of JFK were cancelled. 2) We were on the last row of the plane so our seats didn’t recline. Annoying at best bc the flight was so short, but would have been nice since we had been traveling for 18 hours by that point (because of the late flight, missed connection, cancelled JFK flights, etc)."
Cons: "The e-ticket did not include the terminal information. As it was an Iberia flight I went to the terminal 7 where Iberia operates. However, after waiting on line when I got to the counter the attendant informed me that the flight was operated by American Airlines and I had to go to terminal 8. I ran to terminal 8 but by the time I got to the check in it was 6:15 and they said they said the check-in for the flight at 7(which was actually at 6:55pm) was closed for check-in. I was lucky enough that there was another Iberia flight (this one from terminal 7) st 8:30pm and the supervisor was able to find me a spot in that flight."
Cons: "My flight back home was cancelled without any notice and so we had to spend an extra night. The flight the next day went without a hitch, so it sort of made up for it."
Cons: "The flight I booked was misrepresented. I thought I was booking a BA flight only to find it was American Airlines. This changed the terminal I was to go to and the gate in which our Italian non-english speaking driver was to meet us at. This impacted seating selection, as well. Was forced to buy a premium seat when I realized the seating chart did not appear when I purchased the tickets. Also, flight was three hours late upon arrival. I understand safety is paramount and am grateful we eventually were able to find another plane, but it begs to speculate if things would have been smoother on a BA plane."
Pros: "Crew updates during a technical issue investigation."
Cons: "This plane is very small for an international flight, and it does not have the proper entertainment system for long flights. To top it off, the plane was very smelly; I got a headache because of it. We also had to return to the gate due to a technical issue and ended up leaving almost two hours late, which defeated the purpose of picking this flight over the rest as it was the one that was supposed to land in Milan the earliest. I will be careful next time I pick a flight to check what kind of airplane they're using. My assumption that international flights have the best airplanes seems to be wrong :(."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination at least! Good crew and decent food but that’s the least I can expect from an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Very old plane. Had the screens every 4-5 aisles. No control over the entertainment. Very uncomfortable seats, but so are almost every other airlines. The worst part about this flight was that I traveled with my girlfriend and when I went to check in, 24 hours before, there were only single seats left and there were so many open seats together that were considered “preferred” and had to pay $80 for just one “preferred” seat just so we can sit together on an 8 hour long flight. The seat didn’t even have any extra legroom or anything, it was a normal seat. American Airlines is just trying to squeeze money out of anything they can."
Pros: "Plane and staff were great. Very easy boarding process and we landed early in Dublin airport after an hour delayed take off. Food and staff service was very good, no complaints."
Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally lovely through delay except for lead attendant who spoke down to attendants and passengers alike (would refer to me in third person in front of me--asking attendant condescendingly "why is he here?"). terrible sense of service, spoke like I was a grade school kid in her class. Gate agent gave me last minute seat change which was very cool of her"
Cons: "Plane is terribly old, has ashtrays and audio channels for entertainment. More importantly, mechanical failures at and after gate. Total delay of over 2 hours. My girlfriend flew this same plane and had even longer delays plus needed to divert In flight and turn around and land in heathrow on a mxp-jfk route (they were over the Atlantic). Problems continue for me 2 months later on this route and as a pattern it's incredibly unsettling. I'm questioning whether taking the return flight on a plane that's clearly begging to be retired"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours last minute, making my layover 17 hours long. The delay caused my car rental place to give away my reservation so I had to wait an additional 2.5 hours to get a rental car. The primary reason for my travel was a wedding and although I made the actual wedding, I missed most of the pre-wedding activities that I had rsvped for. The seats were really uncomfortable, particularly the lack of low back support. I was very sore after the flight and was unable to sleep despite having been awake for over 24 hours prior to the flight. We were finally given meal tickets but was unable to use as everything closed at 10pm."
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
Pros: "Nice crew clean airplane"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled after 2 hours delay. My next flight was scheduled the earliest possible by AA which was 24 hours later. No transportation,hotel or miles compensation for this. I had work and responsabilities the next day. TThe scheduled trip was supposed to take off at 7:45. Boarding started late and was very slow. My bag fit the meassurements and still was forced to check it (which I did not want to do as I did not want to be waiting an hour for my bag at my arrival as I had work early the next day. In addition there was airplaine traffic as it was "rush hour" instead of flying at 7:45 we departed almost at 9pm!!!! Have to pay for food Quality of tv monitors very poor And in an uncomfortable position No movie options No wifi although stated the aircraft has Non functioning electrical plug"
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Cons: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation. We understand that Things happens and the airline takes precautions to make sure everything is okay before take off. However, I'm very frustrated and disappointed."
Cons: "My family and I make I JFK -LAX reservation 4 months ago. We came to LAX three hours before our flight to make sure we get good seats. At the checking kiosk we did not have the option to pick seats , there was a message on the boarding pass that said to go see boarding agent. So we did, appreantly they over booked the trip and they were looking for volunteers to give up their seats!! Why did we have to be on stand by if our booking was confirmed 4 months ago!! They made us wait until the gate was closed and then they found us seats . This trip caused us mental anguish I will never fly American Airlines again"
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to multiple mechanical malfunctions that should have been checked previous to boarding. Held on the plane for 4 hours, another 4 hours in terminal of the closed airport once allowed to deplane, no communication, no food or water, put up in a hotel an hour and half away despite this being NYC, terrible customer service, no compensation, unable to get tofinal destination earlier than 24 hours later missed events in final destination overall financial and personal losses due to the inadequacy of the airline."
Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"
Cons: "Airline refused to honor ticket purchased through vayama. Kayak. American seems to be in some kind of work slowdown and they tried to make as many people as possible miss their flights. It was awful. I will never fly american again. Awful."
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour because crew announced there was a discrepancy between # passengers boarding central records. Flight crew didn't do anything to comfort passengers during this. Captain made one announcement about turbulence once at the beginning but nothing else for 1/2 hour or longer long turbulence period. Crew took away tray without asking. Ran out of water. Doors did not open for quite awhile after docking but crew said nothing. Seats so small one had to keep elbows glued to body to eat without touching neighbors. Felt like cattle being driven to slaughter. Min"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."
Pros: "The crew were beyond excellent and tried to help with the seats. They were also very apologetic for the seat issue."
Cons: "Our seats had no power and couldn't adjust. The crew manually did it for us but we never got it to go close to flat. We were on an old 757 which is such an embarrassing product for AA compared to the new or refurbished planes."
Pros: "The Boeing 777 200 was refurbished with the new business class pods"
Cons: "Modern cabin space"
Cabin service in Business Class was super. They announced that alcohol was being served for purchase in Economy Class so some Covid-19 rules are being relaxed. Gate boarding was a bit unusual, i.e., Group 3 & 4 boarded before Group 1, but the Gate Agent was very good about keeping us informed of the changes. Overall, a great flight.
Pros: "everyone was great."
Cons: "very full flight but that's expected."
Cons: "Passenger behind us allowed 2 children to misbehave for the entire flight. Parent rammed our seats many times. Upon leaving they physically assaulted my daughter."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Seats were pretty bad. For a 10 hour flight, rigid, not reclining. Crew was curt. Not rude but curt. Food was terrible. Asked for Indian vegetarian meal - but got an Asian vegetarian meal that had no taste whatsoever. If they can do a Muslim meal, I don't know why they can't do Indian Vegetarian."
Cons: "US Gov shutdown a pain to get thru customs and security. cabin crew on flight to YYZ was terrible."
Pros: "Early morning departures are the best and the crew and boarding staff were fantastic"
Pros: "I especially like the agent at the United Lounge in Denver who changed my flight to one that left 3 hours before my original flight. Also, she arranged for my checked bag from Dayton, OH to be transferred to the new flight. I was concerned by happy to get it in Denver - actually, it was one of the first luggage to arrive."
Cons: "All was well. Thanks."
Cons: "I was lead to believe I was booking a flight on lufthansa. It turned out it was United in a confirmation email a few weeks following the purchase. Then 24 hours prior to boarding, a notification comes in that I am flying Air Brussels. This leaves me with confusion - which airport terminal to go to, where to check in, who to call, etc. When I finally arrive to the airport at JFK, I find there is no Air Brussels Check in and that I need to go to United. But United no longer operates out of JFK, so I was finally directed to the British Airways terminal to check in with Eurowings. The flight was supposedly a Eurowings flight in collaboration with Lufthansa and United but operated by Brussels Airlines. I’ve never before experienced this miscommunication and confusion with one single flight, especially in my home country. When I booked the flight, it was quite clear it was Lufthansa and I paid Lufthansa prices. I was very disappointed overall with the experience leading me up to boarding time and had I known it was not a Lufthansa plane and crew, I would not have booked it. I hope you can I understand my frustration as this was poorly communicated and manasged and was quite misleading from the start. I would appreciate some compensation or recognition for the confusion as I will no longer be using Kayak or third party booking sites due to the way this was handled. I am a loyal Kayak user, but this was just too much and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before."
Cons: "A very rude boarding agent insulted a young man from another country who was boarding in front of me. He misunderstood that they wanted him to check his luggage instead of carry it on. The agent yelled at him and shamed him in front of other passengers. United strikes again!! Seriously folks, you suck!"
Cons: "Flight delayed until 8pm then sat on the plane in Toronto for 45 minutes waiting for a gate and because we were sent to a parking area with numerous other planes and ended up getting boxed in and couldn’t get to our gate earlier. Nothing offered to the passengers during this time, not even water."
Pros: "It was a short flight, less than an hour, but the crew was great."

Cons: "ATTITUDE OF SOME OF THE STAFF TO PASSENGERS DELAYED IN ORD!!!!! It stunk."
Cons: "Flight was aborted on the runway, we were returned to the terminal, and flight was delayed over 6 hours."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They comped everyone the direct tv access as an apology for the delay, but I'd rather be comped wifi."
Cons: "It ended up being a 5 hour delay. I would have been fine with it if they had told us up front that it was 5 hours, but instead it's 2 hours, then after an hour passes they tack on another hour and so on. It would be nice just to know it'll be a long wait, so we can leave and come back or reschedule our flight for the next day."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Crew's facial expression were upsetting to see since they looked unhappy. Should I be worried about my flight?"
Pros: "How they gave me exit row seats and flifht crew was good"
Cons: "Your check in ticket counter workers in SEA airport.. there was a married couple who was very rude and because i could not get a "prepaid card" but had 25 for my bag the man said "well i guess you are not going" excuse me?! I paid over 200 for my ticket!! Luckily there was a nice polynesian young man who stepped in and helped right away. That couple made my experience HORRIBLE! I do want something done about that! I almost missed a very important event and they looked to be arguing with each other! They need to keep their personal stuff at home! I was so mad.however, the flight crew was awesome!"
Pros: "Quick hop to San Fran"
Cons: "Such a tiny plane! Carryons have to go in the hold. Any delay and you will miss your connection. Best is to check all luggage through and only bring an under seat bag on board."
Cons: "Beth legs of the flight were delayed. The first delay causing me to miss my connecting flight and he second causing me to miss an import an important dinner in Boston."
Pros: "2 hrs late!"
Cons: "The boarding process is ridiculously slow. Why not load from the back row first? Then you wouldn't have 150 people behind one slowpoke. You could cut the boarding process time by 90%."
Pros: "It was a good flight, short but good."
Cons: "The crew we had was not real accommodating IMO. They passed by me for dinner and breakfast and I had to get up and go ask for my meals. Not very service oriented. The crew from Chicago to Hong Kong on Jan 16 was fantastic in contrast."
Cons: "That a bunch of travelers including myself missed our connecting flight in Chicago after united chamged our arrival gate but didn't have any crew to man the jet way. We sat for 20 mins right in front of our gate. From 1 pm to 10 on my flight to Asheville from Chicago was delayed many many times waiting for our airplane to arrive. Upsetting that we missed our connection due to United's poor planning, they didn't hold our connecting flight for us but we had to wait all night for other flights."
Pros: "I like nothing! From the beginning It was a nightmare. Begin with changing airlines because theirs have mechanical difficulties. We have to sleep in the floor at miami. Never again!"

Pros: "Perfect all around and arrived 25 minutes early."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Well, first of all, it was operated by United. It wasn't even a Lufthansa flight. Also, there was no power outlets in economy. What year is this again??? And no touchscreen to choose what movie I want to watch?? Get with the times, United"
Pros: "The flight was good. Little bumpy but that was to be expected with a hurricane near by"
Pros: "Quick response to get me another Airline since I could not meet my transfer due to weather delays in San Francisco. United got me a Direct flight on Alaska. Luggage was delivers to my home that next afternoon intact. Even with a Delay due to weather the issue was handled nicely."
Cons: "Everything worked out great."
Pros: "Everything except the wifi not working"
Cons: "The wifi not working"
Cons: "WiFi wasn't working properly and the power outlet"

Pros: "United always is superior to other Airlines once up in the air"
Cons: "We flew standby and United had problems with their first flight to Portand from San Francisco causing an overbooking situation.
