Airline reviews

Pros: "The airplane was very nice with great space between seats and the crew was nice."
Cons: "During boarding procedure, the gate used did not support the number of passengers and was a little bit messy"

Pros: "Plane was good, plane staff were good."
Cons: "Forced to move seat (whole row of us) as plane was taxiing to the runway. Just managed to squeeze bag into overhead bin, sit down, and buckle in before we took off. Don't know why we had to move - not explained. Ended up with a middle seat rather than my booked window seat. There was a curfew in Bogota, which caused the plane from Panama to Bogota to be late, thus ensuring I missed my connection. Rather than being put on the next plane, I was forced to miss not only my original one, but 2 further ones. So rather than arrive, as scheduled, at 15:15 I will arrive over 9 hours later, after midnight. Could have been handled better by Avianca."

Pros: "Good schedule"

Cons: "Arrive direct to the terminal, we have to take a bus, a minor detail to an overall great flight."

Cons: "More available for information and resolve situation to passenger lost her connections"

Cons: "Food was undeserving for a 6 hour flight. One hour late with no previous warning and inflexible luggage policy."

Informed that A representative from Avianca would meet me at the airport to take me and others to a pre-arranged hotel. Immigration will not let me pass to baggage until the Avianca representative arrives. Still waiting."

Cons: "Carry in bags were searched and we were patted down for some reason."

Cons: "No vegan/vegetarian food options"

Pros: "My first time flying on Avianca. American based carriers should take a look at Avianca’s playbook. Free hot towel given after take off, free pillow and blanket, a meal served with out a fee. Flight attendants make up and hair professionally styled, flight attendants offering to place bags in overhead bins. Customs forms handed out an hour into the flight not the last 30 minutes."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "We did not know our ticket-price included breakfast. However, the flight had no vegetarian option, so we passed."

Pros: "all the crew was extremely friendly. The meals were delicious and my vegetarian request was honored. All the flights had meals even though some of them were strange times, and a good beverage selection was also offered. The in-flight entertainment was pretty top-notch. Great ticket price though, and somehow I lucked out and had some free seats next to me in some of the flights. very friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "all the flights that I was on didn't even start boarding until about 20 minutes before the plane was supposed to take off. This resulted in all the flights I was on being around 45 minutes to an hour late taking off. The cabin size was very small, it was hard to fit my stuff in the overhead compartment. not a lot of legroom and for a 6 foot one guy, this was a bit of an issue and I had some intense leg pain from my position. for the low-cost flight that I got I did have some seemingly out-of-the-way layovers and they were also quite long. would be great to see airplanes that The option to choose a bunk bed instead of a regular seat so that you could rest on redeye flights or just take naps in general."

Pros: "Terrible all the way around. Took half a day to get from Lima to cusco and only excuse was "air traffic is busy". I understand an hour or two but 5 hours seems a little excessive. Lady was extremely rude. Won't fly this airline again."

Pros: "Great airline!"

Pros: "Was ok"
Cons: "We had to wait more than an hour inside the plane to take off, we arrived 2h late"

Pros: "The airline gives a good service to travel, always on time that's really good, but their staff don't have a good costumer service, food and entertainment is pretty good!!!"

One of the worst airlines we've ever flown."

Cons: "Food was terrible, for first class they need to up the standards"

Cons: "Engine problems-2 hour delay"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"

Pros: "easy but long day coming home"
Cons: "however on the initial trip to cozumel we where rerouted from kc to huntvilles therefore missing our connecting flight to cozumel so the airline was accomodating and reseated us on a flight to cancun instead and I was thankful but i know that that flight was cheaper when i booked this but i didnt want to make the treak to cancun and bus and then ferry to cozumel but ended up doing that anyway is there any way at all to be compensated for the diffrence I am not upset at all but that made for a really long day getting there Just putting it out there"

Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."

Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."

Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."

Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "Poor customer service, panicking customers for nothing and just general lack of consideration for paying customers. Definite turn off to Delta. Not planning to use this airline agaon"

Pros: "Your entertainment system is fabulous!"
Cons: "We purchased a direct flight from Boston to Tampa. We paid extra for the convenience of a direct flight Our flight was changed without notification to a connecting flight that was leaving 10 minutes earlier and arriving 2 hours later. Due to malfunction with the kiosk and not a sufficient amount of agents at check in, we missed our flight by 4 minutes. The gate agent seemed to enjoy telling us, with our 10 month old baby, that we were too late. Our baggage, including car seat, had been loaded on the plane. We were reassigned to a flight the following morning. We missed a full day with family, had to travel back home without a car seat and return to the airport the following day. I was shocked and disappointed that not single Delta agent was accommodating or remotely helpful while we were at the airport. I've never had a problem with Delta before. We travel on regularly and would like to continue using Delta. I would like a voucher for my next Delta trip."

Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"

Pros: "Crew was kind, entertainment and food were good"
Cons: "Seats are really tight"

Cons: "Too crowded."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "With a short layiver, it would be nice to have the option to pirchas a sandwich on board"

Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."

Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."

Pros: "Clean plan and efficient boarding procedure."
Cons: "Horrible delay. Took off almost two hours post originally scheduled time."

Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."

Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."

Pros: "There were no problems at all, the only thing some times the entertainment would go out or slow, nothing else."

Pros: "The service was fine. I slept the entire flight."
Cons: "I was not impress with the breakfast since I do not eat yogurt. It is a good thing i am not a breafast eater normally because I would have been hungry."

Pros: "Entertainment was great. Many options"
Cons: "When we arrived for check in we were told we did not have seats assigned, even though I had picked seats previously. At the gate we were told the flight was very full so we would not be able to sit together."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."

Pros: "Smooth ride. Delta got everything right from takeoff to landing."

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."

Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."

Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"

Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."

Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."

Pros: "Great customer service at check-in, gate and wonderful crew! The flight attendants were some of the best I've had on any airline."
Cons: "We were seated in the back row and the seats did not recline. What made that even worse, is they are COMPLETELY upright. I mean you are sitting at nearly a 90 degree angle! The other rows un-reclined had more recline than the last row. This was an older 737 and those seats never should have been installed on that plane. Luckily, there were a few empty seats and we were able to move, although not together. 3 of our 4 flights were on newer planes, and on one other flight we were also seated in the back row. But, those seats reclined and were as comfortable as any other seat on the plane. COPA, if you're reading this, kudos to your great operation, but do NOT use that horrible old 737 on such a long flight. Or, only use those seats for standbys!"

Cons: "Get with the times and stop using plastic cups."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They were very attentive throughout the course of the flight."

Pros: "the only plus was that the plane had TVs and blankets, and a meal. otherwise, not much"
Cons: "Everything... not a good experience overall. We were significatnly delayed for no reason. poor communication, rude staff and no wifi. seats very uncomfortable..."

Cons: "Good service"

Cons: "Nithing"

Pros: "Crew was great. A dinner meal and full beverage service is included ....remember when the Big airlines use to??"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise to have a security check at gate, especially when they took every ones water that was purchased in the secure area just outside of the gates!!! At least some signage about No Water bottles!!"

Cons: "When boarding from Panama City, the airline security crew at the gate screening insisted on taking my empty water bottle, I assume based on US regulations, even though it was clearly empty. When I pointed out that in the US, there is no problem with empty water bottles-- and the extra security is due to US standards-- they said 'this is Panama' and refused to return the water bottle. The rest of the crew was pleasant onboard the flight."

Pros: "Boarding was in Spanish - thankfully I recognized the number of our boarding group. Everything was average - what you’d expect on a normal flight. But for breakfast, one of the options was eggs. I expected something barely edible, but it was actually really tasty!"
Cons: "Boarding was all in Spanish. I recognized our group number though, so figured it out, but it’s always nice when it’s repeated in English."

Pros: "Food was great, crew was great."
Cons: "This flight did not have the screens for each seat, leaving no choice to choose what to watch or to see flight info."

Cons: "Seats very small"

Pros: "The breakfast was good, warm, fruits were fresh."

Pros: "Great flight. Decent sized seat. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Leg room, crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"

Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Again food"

Pros: "The stewardess was very unprofessional and being racist"

Pros: "Always is on time"

Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."

Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."

Pros: "Smooth flight, made up for lost time"
Cons: "Very unpleasant experience with crew generally. Very surprising, given previous experiences with Copa."

Pros: "The seat had extra leg room, BUT..."
Cons: "The seat's cushion was pulled out from the backrest, making it a very uncomfortable seat & giving me Backpain. (This was the seat next to the window, not the middle seat.)"

Pros: "The flight attendants were good to everyone and the plane was either new or very close to it"

Pros: "Great overall experience. Hassle free."

Cons: "Lo últimos grupos deberían pasar primero."

Pros: "Nice crew and we left on time"
Cons: "No legroom whatsoever nice crew and we left on time"

Pros: "On time, clean, and non stop, the latter being the best! First flight was a newer plane, and appreciate the USB ports. Older plane on return flight, but got home safe and sound with a little extra time to spare. That's a good trip in my book."
Cons: "Nothing negative."

Pros: "Excellent service and room to stretch"
Cons: "We were late due to waiting for a crew member to arrive"

Cons: "No individual screen and no USB chargers. No snack or coffe before landing in an 5 and a half flight"

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "I got upgraded to first class. Awesome experience"

Pros: "Food decent. Alcoholic drinks included. Good service."
Cons: "No TVs on headrests. Sometimes not even a movie on a 5h flight??"

Pros: "Great staff and quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "The staff were very friendly. My flights were on time. Check in was easy."

Pros: "The flight attendants excellent customer services"
Cons: "An item stolen from my luggage"

Cons: "We did not have the little TVs"

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "I went through security at Lima Peru (Jorge Chavez International), everything was fine. I arrived to Panama, and the gate was next door which is just great awesome. The bad part was that I had to go through a security check once again there, although I had not left the airport since I left Lima. I went through the exercise, I was told that there would be no liquids (8 oz bottle of water, soda, etc) allowed passed that check point. Yet they were selling these items next to the gate. It made no sense why this checkpoint and why the liquid restrictions. Once in the area if I wanted to go use the restroom or whatever I needed to go through the checkpoint. There were 6 Copa employees manning this station, that's extra expense that the company passes on to the flyer for a step that should be evaluated and look at to see why other airlines do not do this. I was not the only one getting frustrated with this setup, but also passengers that did not speak Spanish they could not communicate with Copa employees. I saw this liquid restriction with Spirit Airlines in Lima, and I decided not to fly with them any more, no matter how inexpensive their fares were. Spirit told us that it was US law that made them have people throw away their drinks, although they were bought in a secured area. To me this was just a way to charge for drinks on the plane. I never had to throw away my drink if I had bought it in a secured area."

Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "To board the plane in Panama City passengers had to go through a second security screening and were therefore unable to bring bottled beverages onto the plane. Once through this second security there was no where to purchase water. The free never came through the plane to offer more beverages after the meal service. Many passengers got up and corralled at the back of the plane to get water. I watched a flight attendant drink from one the large bottles herself and then presumably serve to a customer."

Pros: "Food was decent. All Crew very helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wished the longer flight had personalized entertainment in each seat instead of the shorter flight. I could have watched two movies on the longer flight instead of just one."

Pros: "This announcement by the pilot at the beginning of the flight turned out to be incorrect. Despite the fact that I did online check-in at least 23 hours in advance, I was seated way at the rear of the jet. As a single woman who looks unusual because half of my hair is shorter due to recent surgery; I sincerely hope I was not seated at the back due to my appearance. The other passenger seated with me was a very kind developmentally disabled young man. The placement in row 33 +/- only emphasized the many instances of turbulence on the flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The many occasions of turbulence on this flight."

Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"

Pros: "Flight crew were polite and good. Flight was relatively good with excellent entertainment."
Cons: "Despite early check-in, +3hours, and we checked in together; my wife and I were assigned seats that were not together. The boarding staff didn’t even mention that fact or explain why the sitting arrangement was so. It looked like she was just trying to sneak it through. I understand that many people might have pre-selected their seats online and her choices were limited, but a notification would have been nice."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Maybe a lil more movies"

Pros: "The food and service was great!"

Pros: "Friendly and Courteous employees. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Gates were not available upon arriving at destinations. Once we had to take a shuttle bus from plane to gate."

Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."

Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."

Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."

Cons: "That’s everyone should keep their mask on"

Pros: "Price and big chair"

Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "The interior was worn and seat saggy"

Cons: "It’s just Spirit and you just need to know what you are getting when you fly them"

Cons: "At least have some TV’s ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "charges extra for everything but using the bathroom"

Cons: "no wifi"

Pros: "Onboarding was very simple and fast. It took less than 20 minutes."

Pros: "Stewardess gave me a military discount. Very much appreciated"

Pros: "Everything was fast and easy"
Cons: "Having to pay 55 dollars for 1 bag being over weight"

Cons: "1. Unreasonable luggage charge 2. Luggage Claim was not efficient"
