Cons: "Alaska is good"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly. Respectfully turned down lights on the flight."
Cons: "Here didn’t seem to be the option for the free entertainment on my device. No free entertainment screen/device on the seat in front of me. Did not like having to stand outside to board/deboard plane. Slow to provide seat extender that was needed."

Cons: "Nothing. Two short hop flights"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and I'm stuck with no clothes or toiletries, sleeping in a dirty hotel with cigarette smell and have no idea when I'll get my belongings and be able to get on with my very imporatant business trip"
Pros: "Rhe Alaskan staff was fabulous. They helped reschedule flights and connecting flights to get their customers as close as they could to get them to their final destinations on time. They showed patience and were extremely courteous."
Cons: "My flight was so delayed that I missed my doctor appointment for a pancreatic transplant. The smoke po ut of Canada got SeaTac so backed up that many flights were either sever ew ly delayed or cancelled altogether. I feel like I wasted not only my own but this world renowned doctor's time too. I wish the airline would have put out a warning hours before the flight's original departure."
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "Boarded without breaking up main cabin, lost my place in line in the rush forward, once on board we’re delayed about 30 min - would have preferred to wait in lobby, crew nice, small plane in storm"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and nobody told us!!"
Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."
Pros: "Take-off and landing in these planes is great. The boarding process was quick and easy."
Cons: "No snack. If you know that the flight is going to be bumpy, maybe hand out a snack and drink as you board? Just a thought."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"
Pros: "Basically on time. I appreciated the Captain's extensive comments before flight about how it would be bumpy starting about mid-way and continuing to Portland."
Cons: "My seat was changed so I changed it to as close to front as possible; they changed it back so I was unable to sit near my 2 colleagues who I was traveling with. Alaska changed our return flight to 2 hours earlier so we missed part of the conference we (3) were attending. I called about this and the rep gave me a song and self congratulatory dance about how they were meeting my needs! We booked the flight a month in advance and they changed it 2 days before. Guess where my seat was on the new flight? Yep, all the way in the back away from my team."
Pros: "The attendant at the counter was extremely helpful in getting us a refund and a credit toward a future flight."
Cons: "I got a message on Thursday saying my Friday flight was cancelled and that we were rescheduled on exactly the same flight. I called to confirm, and the representative on the phone and her supervisor both confirmed that there was no change to my itinerary. Flash forward to Sunday morning and I call to find out that my return flight was cancelled and that I had to take one the next day. I wound up renting a car and driving back to my home airport to pick up my car and finally drive home."
Pros: "Friendly servers. Great humor. Pilot pointing out Grand Canyon during our flight."
Pros: "We finely got there"
Cons: "Getting on and off plane then waiting then getting back on plane then waiting to get the count right. Then leaving."
Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Pros: "Crew was polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to the pilot not being able to get there in time, announcement made after boarding that the airlines did not get the pilot there on time. Close connecting flight proved to close as the airlines called ahead to hold 3 separate flights into Montana, however our connecting flight left 8 minutes early! Courteously rebooked by the airlines for the following day was unacceptable. We were able to make a connecting flight to a different town and had to rent a car to drive 2 hrs to our original destination. First time flying with Alaska Airlines was not a great experience."
Pros: "Flight was hours late. No explanation. No offer to switch us to the Oakland flight. Kept the curtain open so we peons in coach could watch the flight attendants hold us up while they ostentatiously lifted first class's bags for them."
Cons: "Just get us where we're going close to on time. And don't even try to claim the delay had to do with the weather in SF. Even the Caotain admitted over the PA system that the weather in SF was beautiful, mild, and clear."
Pros: "On time/earlycomfiotabke"
Cons: "I didn't answer 2 Qs above, as they are non applicable."
Pros: "Great, friendly service"
Cons: "Flying out of Medford, OR requires a long walk downstairs before getting outside to the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and painless, and the crew was pleasant and friendly despite the early hour. The plane was pretty full, so being a slightly larger woman I felt a little claustrophobic, but it was a short flight so not bad at all. The coffee was not the best but the little cookies are always delicious, and as the flight was not even an hour there was no need for in flight entertainment, so I read on my tablet ad listened to music for the entirety of the flight."
Cons: "The coffee was a bit too strong and tasted burnt. But then again, I tend to be a bit of a coffee snob, being accustomed to the local fare in both the rogue valley and the Portland area."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and they were super helpful you those needing to get off quickly for connections"
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Late departure and very little feedback from ground crew as to what was happening."
Pros: "The crew was great. I am recovering from a fractured shoulder. The crew was so helpful."
Cons: "I had a problem with my name, they took 7 hours to tell me that I had to pay to have my mane changed and rebook my flight, we try to do that and they took another 7 hours to tell me that they didn't have any availability in the next 3 MONTHS! and there was nothing they could do for me, only keep my money and sell my spot to someone else on waiting list and make doble or triple the money!"
Pros: "I loved how friendly the crew was"
Cons: "Completely satisfied"
Pros: "It was a short flight!"
Cons: "Despite no welcome, acknowledgment or greeting from the flight attendant, as he was focused on his phone, he was friendly during the flight. Very loud flight. And of course, the amount of space we are squished into is obscene, almost criminal."
Pros: "Very helpful crew"
Cons: "The coffee was not very good. I had stomach issues the rest of my trip after drinking it."
Pros: "We arrived early. Flight path was over downtown Seattle at night--beautiful."
Cons: "Plane was not crowded, but passengers were crammed into the front and back of the plane for safety. I booked seat 5C and was reassigned seat 19E--last row on the right. No food or entertainment which is fine on an hour flight."
Cons: "The useless motherfuckers cancelled the flight, again. Why would I expect anything else?"
Pros: "My flight attendants were sooooo friendly. Also really enjoy the complimentary glass of wine!"
Pros: "Great staff. Friendly and efficient. The best I've experienced in my recent travels. A+."
Pros: "Leg room was great"
Cons: "The outside walk to the plane"
Pros: "Flight was on-time (a rarity at my airport) and crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "This flight ended up being delayed because of an overhead bin door that wouldn't latch. I understand the rules, but it took 1.5 hours for the mechanic to arrive and assess the situation. Consequently, I missed my flight to Reno from Portland. The airline paid for my hotel (thanks!) and I arrive home with my luggage the next day. Mostly this was an inconvenience, and all turned out well. Just annoying when the problem seemed so minor. The time frame was too long for most passengers to make connections."
Pros: "Thought the complimentary beer and wine offering was fantastic! Even on a short flight like that. Very nice."
Cons: "Being way early and missing flight airline host mistake!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "It was a very long flight, but no meal or entertainment was provided. On other airlines I've flown in the past, these things were included on international flights."
Cons: "most uncomfortable I've sat in"
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Crew AND passengers were great, polite & calm. Seats are kinda squashy, tight. Food was yummy."

Cons: "Seats were narrow and I’m not a big guy. 6’0”. 185."
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Pros: "Seat 4 A. The flight attendant working first class was very attent"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Cons: "Great flight. On time and friendly staff."
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"

Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "It got me there in one piece. USB ports, entertainment system a good distraction."
Cons: "Terrible food, aisles too tight, seats not very comfortable. 777’s are very noisy. Visas on arrival a ridiculous disaster- 100’s of people standing in lines for over an hour while 3 people slowly stamp your passport. Know that is not the airline’s fault!"
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "in economy class"
Cons: "very hard seats with not enough legroom."

Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "fast efficient and directions are pretty clear tons of delicious food available at PDX to bring plane was comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "long lines through security"
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Cons: "Seating has gotten WAY too tight. Will not do that again ... discomfort, inability to even stretch a little bit caused painful nerve flare?"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
Pros: "Kindness and politeness, on time lots of explaining"
Cons: "Beyond seat space all was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Pros: "No problems curling up against the bulkhead and going to sleep. Crew was very considerate about not broadcasting messages to awaken travelers during this overnight flight."
Cons: "Was a bit warm but in a full plane what can you expect?"
Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Delta has a good business product. The entertainment system was good. The food was good."
Cons: "The business class crew struck me as distracted and putout to be there."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Pros: "I trusted Delta to take of my clients; Delta usually did. Rather, the employees of Delta did. Now when I travel, I prefer Delta (when they aren't too much more economically). Let me change that to I used to prefer Delta, because the times, they are achanging. My home airport is Atlanta, I'm usually traveling to Seattle or Portland; Delta is king in those routes. There's more flight time options, and the entertainment available is better."
Cons: "Here's where the picky comes in. I downloaded the 'Go Go" wifi app beforehand. When I tried to connect I received a message that it wasn't available on my routes. Why couldn't they tell me that it might not work on my routes before they took my money? Further, why wasn't it available? It's not like I was going on a multi city/country trip, this was Atlanta to Portland non-stop. Then there's the 'Premier Seating". I opted for it on my outbound flight and received TSA Pre Check. I didn't buy the seating coming back; I did not receive TSA Pre Check. Coincidence? My fare was more than Alaska Airlines was offering it for, I paid for the wifi that didn't work, and in order to avoid the back of the plane, you must pay. So, I guess I'll be going to Alaska Airlines. They don't have as many flights, but I don't feel dinged for more money every time I turn around."
Pros: "Long flight but smooth despite delays"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hours."
Pros: "Flight was ontime taking off and arriving and was a smooth flight. Security and gate area at PDX was very easy to navigate and not too crowded."
Cons: "Seats are very tight pitch, uncomfortable. No amenities were provided. Also, I prefer Southwest-style boarding (no assigned seats)."
Pros: "When flying using the big carriers, Delta is becoming our go to airline for timeliness and comfort."
Pros: "The ground staff at check in was excellent. She was extremely helpful. The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a scramble. The amount of hand luggage people were allowed to bring on board was excessive and the overheads were crammed full."
Pros: "Same as previous flight."
Pros: "Nice plane. Comfort seats were nice."
Cons: "Extremely slow boarding."
Pros: "The quiet so I could sleep"
Cons: "Changing my seat last minute. Had to ask two women to move to get into my seat. Loading the plane first with passengers that have nothing to store above would expedite the experience for me. My seat belt disconnected from the back of the seat. The tray was broken and could not be lowered into a writing or eating position."
Cons: "Waiting in plane for two hour, it got hot and stuff cuz they had to turn of air to defrost plane and was thirsty."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "Compliance with departure times"
Pros: "The flight was cool, i loved not having to get down the airplane in Costa Rica to conitnue to Guatemala."
Cons: "It was freezing, and they didn't offer blankets just while we were on the plane."
Cons: "Food was really awful"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "Now you are giving away free muffins instead of insulting with a granola bar....THANK YOU FOR LISTENING"
Cons: "HOW CAN YOU NOT OFFER COFFEE ON AN AM FLIGHT??? THAT's CRAZY!!!"
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Pros: "Super nice crew! Gave us food even though it was a 50 min flight."
Pros: "No delays on departure. Smooth boarding process"
Pros: "Ha mejorado la comida que dan en económica, en especial par un vuelo tan corto. Las tripulaciones colombianas son más amigables y orientadas al servicio que las panameñas. Panameños: Wake Up!!"
Cons: "Ya es hora que inviertan en esto. Tanto en ejecutiva como en económica."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Pros: "Planes are clean and crew is nice"
Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline, they will over sell their tickets and then expect you to give yours away. Boarding was messy."
Pros: "I was treated SO well as my flight was bumped back a day. I was given a stay at a wonderful hotel with all meals and transportstion as well. It was exquisite! Not to mention $350 reimbursement & wonderful interactions every step of the way."
Cons: "I didn't like delaying my schedule 1 day, but the positives outweighed the negatives without question."
Pros: "One of your crew members went above and beyond to help a family that was sitting next to me. That kind if service was unexpected and a huge help to the family. We were all impressed. They were all very cordial and polite."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional service combined with good food"
Pros: "2 free checked bags, and hot sandwich and drink in coach"
Cons: "Can't think on anything"
Pros: "Quick boarding"

Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"
Pros: "- nice staff - food on the plane"
Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"
Pros: "The flight was all good. I had a good experience, I would like to add that getting to the airport 2hours early is really not necessary. It's not a big airport and I spend a lot of idle time there.. I liked Copa airlines and will use them again."

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "I was looking to fly to Costa Rica and found a price offer for $70 through Volaris. I thought this was a good deal until I looked at the baggage policy. Turns out you have to pay for each bag,bringing my luggage total to $50. Thats when I noticed Copa Airlnes had the same price for airfare plus two free bags! I was sold. Overall great service!"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight due to flight being changed to a different gate than what was written in my ticket."
Pros: "Thank you for offering food, but something's without meat would have me flying copa every time!"
Pros: "It was a short flight....they made the trip comfortable, and on time..."
Cons: "No complaints....."
Cons: "Flights were delayed"
Pros: "Agent issued boarding passes and luggage ticket but somehow didn't process payment. After waiting 4 hours for boarding we were denied entry into plane.

Pros: "The service overall is great. The airplane is comfortable. Airport in Panama has very good service. I would take Copa again."

Pros: "Staff very pleasant and competent. The flight was only one hour duration, but they still managed to serve a small meal and refreshments. Would definitely use again"

Cons: "Sometimes price are quite high that makes flying COPA impossible, way too high"
Cons: "Gate switching with no notice"
Pros: "Ground Crew is alwyas super friendly and very polite. I Normally love to fly with COPA for a number of reasons...but this short trip had two inconviniences that are noted here on the what I thought needed to happen."
Cons: "Male Flight Attendant had attitude and asked me to put my set back in upright position...it was and I had a broken foot, so it would not have been appropriate to put my seat back due to pain. He jkumpoedf all over ma and even the lady next to me...she to was reading and did not have her seat back either! Food was a bag of chips...1 OZ bag of Frito Lay Chips.....

Pros: "I love traveling with Aeromexico, great airline. Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "I don’t like the Aeromexico is becoming a little like Volaris when it comes to checking in. Even though you arrive at the airport 3 hours before your flight (international) you check in online, and you print out your boarding pass, you still wait in line for almost 2 hours. I hope they find a way to speed things up."
Pros: "Right on time, great entertainment and decent food"

Cons: "Crew standing in the back talking to each other with their backs on us"
Pros: "The staff at check-in were wonderful."
Cons: "The upgrade to first class was $150 and definitely not worth it. I was disappointed in the experience and would not recommend. I was traveling with my mother to Mexico to celebrate her 60th birthday and was very excited to upgrade to kick off the celebration. We were offered a glass of water or orange juice after boarding; and when we requested a celebratory glass of champagne, we were denied. As in all other airlines first class participants are served anything they desire while the economy passengers board. It wasn’t until an hour into our flight that we were offered something again. At one point, I turned around and noticed that the first several rows of economy class already had their meals. Before first class. This is not something I would expect. I only fly economy class and was beyond excited to experience the first class amenities, only to feel extremely disappointed in the service by AeroMexico. At this time, I would like to request a refund on the upgrade."
Pros: "Flight had no major inconveniences or mishaps."
Cons: "Paid $150 more for AM Plus. Not worth it."

Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "The delay when departing, and the attention of the flight attendants. Also very limited kind of beverages."
Cons: "The crew was rude. No attention at all. I flew with my 18 months girl that had a cast on her leg and they weren't able to help me out at all."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, there was variety in the entertainment options, and there was a vegetarian food option (pasta) available without having to have requested it, which I always appreciate."
Cons: "I think the first piece of checked luggage should be included in the price of the flight."
Cons: "My husband’s wheelchair was returned to us bent and disassembled. The crew at Logan and the airline ground crew could see us struggling to put it back together and then to fix it but offered absolutely no help until the very end, when we had already gotten the chair to a workable state and help was no longer needed. The crew in Mexico was not helpful upon boarding either, I had to take my husband down the ramp because there was no one to help us. We had no such problems in our outgoing flights so were surprised at the lack of care and utter disinterest on the way back."
Pros: "La comodidad la amabilidad de las personas."
Cons: "La comida"
Cons: "Seat 10C - does not stream properly."
Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."
Cons: "Old plane, late with no notice. Poor seats."
Cons: "My luggage wheel was broken :("
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Didn’t let me board even with boarding pass. Want to chat me multiple fees and charge almost double of a new ticket. I went online and buy a ne ticket. Bad customer service."
Pros: "Everything went great!"
Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"
Cons: "Poor communication about serious delays."
Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."
Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"
Cons: "Crew members are rude, flight was delayed and no one informed us."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs because a crew member got sick. Along with several passengers we missed our connecting flights and basically lost an entire day of vacation rebooking a flight later in the day. At one point before boarding, asked if we could be put on another flight and reimbursed and could not get a straight answer. Big part of the delay was luggage being sorted out to remove the bags of passengers they oversold flights too. It's been one of the longest days ever."
Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"
Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."
Cons: "Landing was rough but then it is Mexico City"
Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a bad mood that night. One of the flight attendants hit my elbow as he was speeding through the aisle, causing me to knock over my drink. He didn't apologize or try to help. The other one"
Pros: "the inflight movie."
Cons: "The flight was suppose to take off from Mexico City at 945 PM however nobody gave an explanation nobody knew the time or even the GATE I got to the airport at 6 PM, the flight took off at 1210 AM not only that I get on the plane and the AEROMEXICO crew had a really messed up attitude like they didnt care, I wanted to buy a gift for my wife from the magazine they had and the lady with a attitude simply said we dont have it, and I could keep going but It was a really bad experience for me."
Pros: "the crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was a little delayed movies or series might be interesting to have as an option to watch"

Cons: "Honestly I have no complaints but they could at least serve something for a 6 hour flight"

Pros: "It was on time and efficient. Easy flight and I liked the announcements."

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and personable. Boarding and seating went smoothly. The flights all departed and landed on time. The cookies were tasty."

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Cons: "My flight time was changed because the crew was not on time. Then it was changed back after everyone had already made accommodations for their connections, me included."

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Everything. Our plane boarded an hour late. The outdated planes need to be renovated with seatback screens. There weren't even any aisle entertainment screens in this plane. The economy seats are smaller than on other planes we've flown in; my husband could not fit his legs in his own leg area and was miserable the entire flight. And only one small snack for a 6 hour flight?"
Cons: "Sfo-phl flight was delayed just long enough to miss connection. Standbys were full. Instead of arriving at 10a it’s 7p"
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"
Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "The fact that it was and appears to still be... Incredibly difficult to get ahold of airline for some form of compensation or credit for the flight I missed... I had made the attempt periodically since and it had still been without any luck."
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."

Pros: "Got us home finally"

Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the food was good as well. However i was disappointed that’s I paid $90 for a 23kg bag just because I didn’t add it prior arrival."
Pros: "Free water and entertainment"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Cons: "Itinerary did not mention the British ran through AA. It Mede me confused. Back and force between two check in desk."

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Pros: "good price."
Cons: "La Guardia Airport is a kind of messy. Some people in AA are rude, specially ground personnel."
Cons: "I would consistency with the flights. The plane I took from NYC to MIA had individual montiors and served a variety of snacks. The flight from MIA to NYC had on pretzels and you had no options for entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Cons: "No personal entertainment systems. I ordered a low lactose meal and got yogurt which is high in lactose!"
Cons: "No headset for entertainment"
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."
Cons: "Lax arrival delayed"
Pros: "have been forced to check in my carry-on bag and waiting to pic it up at the baggage area, resulted that I missed my train"
Cons: "boarding, smooth flight, e-pass option"
Pros: "Seemed to have more leg room than average. Generally fine. I got to my destination without incident, and that is the most important thing! But flying today is awful. Uncomfortable, unpleasant, stressful, etc., all so the airlines (and their CEOs) can make millions."
Cons: "Crew was "all business" -- not many smiles. They offered the usually .5 ounce of pretzels or two cookies. Passengers routinely asked "can I have both?" and the answer was routinely: no. Really? My $300+ ticket isn't worth pretzels AND two cookies? Seems silly. And, you know that have BOXES of these free snacks."
Pros: "The guy at the check in counter was awesome, even though his English wasn't great. He upgraded me to the exit row seats since my legs are long; usually you need to pay for this. The seats were huge and comfortable, though the arm rests didn't move, so you could stretch out (the flight wasn't that full)."
Cons: "One flight attendant was basically rude to everyone. She was so comically unfriendly that people on the plane were actually mocking her (for good reason). She refused to explain to us how the emergent slide worked. We asked because the visual instructions on the door were different from those in the seat back pamphlet. In fact, I still don't know which directions are the correct ones (they were contradictory)."
