Cons: "No vegan/vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The crew was excelent"
Cons: "The fly was delayed."
Cons: "People were NOT following instructions at boarding time... even though they were giving us instructions about who was boarding... I mentioned it to the agent when I boarded and he replied “No, that’s not true” when I was seeing who was boarding and when... if families with children were called... even single travelers were boarding the general boarding line... nobody really cared"
Pros: "Was really good"

Pros: "Overall everything went well. Boarding was easy, quick, and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "I felt the space between rows is a bit tight and the food was fair."
Cons: "Airline employees at gate did not take the time to search passenger return flight in system, despite return being through Avianca and easy to find. This led to passenger missing flight. They ended up finding it after the missed flight and placing passenger in the following day's flight."
Pros: "The movies were the only good thing in this flight because the food sucks and the seat are very uncomfortable, which makes think on not to take Avianca for long distance trips anymore"
Cons: "The flight was delayed (53 min) and they only announced once the change in the gate from 51 to 43, many people were lost without knowing were to go."
Pros: "THE GOOD SERVICE"
Pros: "Crew service inflight are very well trained."
Cons: "After I checked in online, I noticed that my flight was delayed from 9 pm to next day at 3 am. I called the help desk and after 40 minutes and 4 different people they said that in fact that the flight 008 from Bohota to Miami was delayed. Very Poor communication between company departments and poor communication alerts to costumers. In addittion, the only explanation from counter staff was "airplane maintance". Really? For an international flight from Bogota where you have located your main airplane base ? I do believe that land staff is very poorly train compared to inflight crew. Land staff has very poor supervision to improve costumer service."
Pros: "Good service well kept airplanes"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Comfortable airplane. Crew was polite and helpful. I don’t usually eat in a plane, but the meal was not bad at all."
Cons: "First of all the flight was very late, so I missed my connection flight from Miami. I couldn’t get home on the other airline because it was full, so I had to buy another ticket to another city and had a family member pick me up, so we drove an additional hour. From the time I went to the airport in La Paz, took me 24 hours to get home. I had to work the next day."
Pros: "I like the the crew they were very nice and polite"
Cons: "Some of this stuff need to be a little more friendly and courteous"
Cons: "I had cancel my flight with Avianca due to hurricane Irma and the airline would not cancel. It does not want to return the money"
Cons: "Called "customer service" and they changed my tickets. Tried to rebook 3 times but each time was a problem and lost each of the 3 reservations because they can't take payments. They should not have changed anything to begging with. It's a trap! Now I have to figure out how to get my money back."
Pros: "The same"
Cons: "The same"
Cons: "The direct flight to Miami was postpone at 1:00 in the morning. They sent me to Panama and then to Miami in the last back seat of the 2 flights. My suitcase is still in Panama. Not delivered in Miami. The flight Panama-Miami was really dirty. What a disaster!"
Pros: "On time flight and smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Food was ok."
Pros: "Ample legroom, ability to select seats without hassle, a warm meal! Also loved the fact that while flying from Miami to South America and back we had a 2 bag allowance each. These small things are rare nowadays."
Cons: "The phone customer service reps should be made aware that two lap infants cannot sit on the same side of the airplane row. There are only 4 oxygen masks above each side of the row."
Pros: "Much better boarding experience and many new movies to choose from. I watched the new Beauty and the Beast."
Cons: "Their protocols for taking off and landing are a little dated. Passengers are not allowed to use blankets during take off/landing, also all window shades have to be open. They were very serious about it."
Pros: "The good timming"
Cons: "El aircraft was totally awfull. too mcuh noise, toilets smell bad, no coffee because machine was broken... such a bad experience"
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: "Modern comforts, pleasantries, good service, clean, spacious Searle Inc. Great experience. Felt like flying in the old days. Great planes."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "The landing was horrifying. After being on many commercial flights over the years I have never felt this way about a flight experience. The pilot seemed very inexperienced nor skilled at landing. The plane first took a plunge leaving everyone grabbing their seats in fear. The plane was going way too fast as we then continued descending while the plane tilted to the side and then the nose of the plane tipped downwards. To best describe the situation, the plane was completely out of control. Everyone around me was frightened and talking about the awful experience. Flight attendants nor the pilot made any mention of what happened nor did they make an announcement to make passengers aware that there may be some difficulty landing. Therefore passengers were left to wonder what really happened but it seemed as if this was the first time the pilot had flown a plane. After the landing I was sick for the rest of the day with nausea. I would like a refund and will report this matter to the FAA for answers and I believe they should investigate what happened on this flight for safety matters. I did not feel safe at all, and I have never had an experience like this. I'm afraid to ever fly AVIANCA again."
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: "I am impressed! I will be booking through Avianca again!"
Pros: "Being moved to a copa fligth"
Cons: "They had us 3hours con the plain and after that it was cancelled. Several people lost a full day of work no responsability from Avianca."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "fly was very good the crew very professional and good service"
Cons: "In Medellin the check in is very bad you have to stay in the line with the the people flying domestic fly.. In Miami when I received my luggage was broken and in addition we have to wait for the personal the avianca because they were in lunch time and according with a "suppervisor" they were fighting My name is Rene Gutierrez my phone number 1-305-502-2111"
Pros: "Their service has lowered the standards though and that is why I do not grade them 5 stars. In particular the crew in the plane was not as nice and the food was not as good as before. Compared to other airlines I frequent though, Avianca is the best."
Cons: "Worst service ever and we got the last 2 seats in the plane. Pilot seemed to be disturbed and and had a bad attitude towards passengers that could be felt overtime he communicated anything. Maneuvers were really rough."
Pros: "On the flight down from Miami to Cartagena, we did not expect a meal...and since we are all vegetarians, pretty much did not get one, but the flight attendants gave us what they could. I called Avianca and requested vegetarian and received for all 6 of us! Also, pleased that my whole family was seated in one row."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "How they play yoyo with the fare....i paid about $1100.00 for a round trip flight from miami to barranquilla, and a couple of days later it dropped to half the price. On my way back from barranquilla to miami, i was excatly 4 minutes late, they refused to let me on the flight, which was not even boarding yet (1 hour away from flight time). They forced me to buy a one-way flight back, with connecting flight, for $550. I don't know if this even going to make any difference, or even be read, for that matter, but i thought i would relay that to other customers who are thinking about flying with avianca."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Cons: "Pessoal despreparado, levei meu cachorro de suporte emocional, me colocaram em uma poltrona qualquer, apertada. Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao. O meu voo foi cancelado e me colocAram em outro horas depois, um transtorno, e para completar estou sem minhas malas, porque nao sabiam o que tinha acontecido. Estou em orlando sem nada! Nao recomendo!"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thankyou so much."
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."

Cons: "Delta staff at the airport JFK"
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, friendly, and efficient."
Cons: "The most difficult part was boarding and deboarding due to some of the passengers not listening to the guidance of the crew."
Pros: "Like the “lanes” for boarding; however, there was no announcement so some people did not know and did not line up and just cut in between those who had. Biscoff cookies are always appreciated."
Cons: "The WiFi was very cumbersome to use, despite the instructions. The monitors had a marked delay when touched, making the entertainment a challenge to use."
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice and tried to help us as there was no food on board for our dietary restrictions."
Cons: "The folks at the desk arrived late to address issues. It was crowded and disorganized.

The plane was dirty and frankly not very"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Pros: "Liked the food, the crew were cheerful and helpful. Service was great."
Cons: "KLM staff at the AMS airport were not helpful. She insisted that our luggage weigh exactly 23kg. At 23.7, she had us go back to take things out with only 45 minutes to boarding. She was rude and unprofessional. Taking off and landing was a little rough. Entertainment on the plane was limited and a little outdated."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and very carrying when I wasn’t feeling well. They checked on me multiple times! The food was also really good for airline food!"
Cons: "The security process in the Prague airport is so ridiculous. There are security agents who screen you in the baggage drop off line that makes the line take a very long time. Once you finally get your sticker from them it’s a quick trip through customs. Then the pain really begins with a security scan st each individual gate to enter a boarding area for the plane. Then I was pulled for extra security where a male agent touched my but with some sort of swab with no warning. He then claimed to not speak English (with zero accent when I asked him a question). It was a humiliating and very long process all run by delta!"
Pros: "The pilot and the stewardess were very polite."
Cons: "Standing on line,it was slow cause only 1 person was help people check in. It would been better if everyone could check in with the kiosk machines. After half an hour than another person came to help. TSA move more fast cause so many people were working."
Cons: "Call center tried moving us to later flight that was also delayed by 3 hrs despite telling us it was on time. Fortunately a gate agent moved us back to orig flight"
Pros: "Good flight. Organized. Friendly flight attendants. I like Delta."
Cons: "Paid for priority seats, but weren't offered the option for my two free drinks due to the flight being short distance."
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "Some "perk" for Diamond status on Delta to get to a shorter security line, but customs and immigration was... customs and immigration."
Cons: "No available SkyTeam lounge unless you had a business class ticket. As a Diamond flier, I can always access the SkyTeam lounges. Audio for boarding was a little unclear so there was some confusion at boarding. For reasons unknown, my bag was moved from one overhead bin to another. Very frustrating since I board early to avoid this confusion and hassle."
Cons: "My row didn't have sound on our entertainment system. I was able to move to another seat and they did compensate the couple that was next tho new with beverages and miles to their account."
Cons: "There wasn't electricity at all on my seat and on some other in the same area. The screen didn't work and I couldn't even charge my phone. Very bad experience!"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "Over all the flight was smooth and great"
Cons: "Kayak, the confirmation email that was sent was incorrect, ended up flying delta - had a scare when checking in at the air europa desk and the attendant says "theres no flights to Malaga" - after further investigation from the staff, we found out it was a Delta flight and NOT and air europa flight"
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "My roundtrip flights with delta were all delayed at least 2 hours. That's what you pay for for a cheap flight. There were no inclement weather and the staff didn't give a reason for the delay."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "shorter flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system is not working."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was amazing comfort was horrible. My seat was un front of emergency exit and could recline, I was traveling with children"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Space between seats, tv on each seat, iPhone charger"
Cons: "Boarding process for Copa 808 from Panama City to JFK on 8/25/2019 was mob-like. Attitude of security personnel was unhelpful/resentful when trying to use Star Alliance Gold Lane (Have Premier Platinum on United). My wife got “selected” for special security screening. Almost missed flight."
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Copa change our flight to 5 hr layover with no options and panama airport is not comfortable to be there for that many hours unless you pay for the lounge $48 p/person and only 30 mins free wi-fi so very inconvenient. Also that airport closes the gates that are not been use so no one can sit."
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Luggage pick up"
Pros: "Comfortable, nice crew"
Cons: "Dirty baths"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room Seats have power to plug in phone and computers to charge New Plane (Boeing 737-800) Food was good. All staff at the gate and on plane was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely use Copa to travel again. On time departure and landing"
Cons: "Could use a little more entertainment selections. Staff at security check before you get to the gate were not really helpful and did not seem interested in helping out at all."
Pros: "The information provided prior to the flight and online booking experience."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants Rude gate / entry attendants No guidance was given to passengers prior to boarding regarding how long it would be until boarding so everyone was just standing around pushing toward the doors. Long, unorganized boarding process. Attendants just allowed everyone to gather in front of the doors so rude passengers pushed their way to the front and cut the "line." No tvs in the seats. I am vegetarian and was not given a vegetarian option! Very Inconsiderate of this airline. Even worse, the flight attendant basically told me that it was my fault because I didn't ask for one in advance. Extremely poor customer service! Had I been asked, I would have requested a vegetarian meal but I did not see that option when booking."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was friendly."
Cons: "Having to screen my carry-on luggage twice, at airport entrance and gate entrance, was a shocker."
Pros: "Tve food os good"
Cons: "The fly EXCELENT"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June with a window seat. When I got to Copa check in they told me I didn’t have an assigned seat (and I got there very early) and that she couldn’t help me get a seat assignment until I got to the gate. Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."
Pros: "Drinks & food was ok"
Cons: "Delays and changes in flights"
Pros: "Flight left promptly on time. Crew was attentive and pleasant. Its great to be fed on the flight and not have to pay for luggage. Food was very tasty!!!"
Pros: "The food and the first class seating"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "Served great airline food, and the staff is very friendly. Free alcohol is also available."
Cons: ". When we arrived in Panama we were forced to do security again at our gate which meant we had to throw away the 4 dollar bottle of water we had just purchased only to be stuck in an area with no bathrooms until our flight."
Pros: "I liked everything. Excellent service, friendly crew, very good food, well informed, been travelled with Copa Airlines for a few years now n will continue with them on the future. Great job guys. Thanks"
Pros: "I've never had a flight that was late with Copa."
Pros: "I had a seat in the exit row with plenty of legroom flight attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "mediocre food very crowded luggage took a long time to arrive"
Pros: "The crew was attentive Ontime"
Cons: "Limited movie choices Limited legroom (like many airlines in cattle class) No chess in games"
Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."
Pros: "Me gustó todo, el menú para vegetarianos y demás la amabilidad de todos, el vuelo puntual y bastante tranquilo"
Cons: "Todo estuvo súper bien"
Cons: "There was a second security check right at the gate, which we were not warned about at all. I had bought a bottle of liquor in Colombia and they would not let me get on the plane to NYC with it. Luckily I had a large shopping bag that I got from the gift shop in Colombia, so I was able to dump everything that was in my nylon tote into that shopping bag and they haphazardly wrapped my bottle in one of my sweaters and checked my tote. The employees said this was a new policy in Panama City, but many other travelers were confused. Passengers should be warned!"
Pros: "To do bien To do muy. Muy Bueno"
Cons: "To do"
Pros: "Overall comfort and attentiveness of staff is hard to beat elsewhere."
Cons: "Everything was fine with this trip;"
Cons: "The fact that you do not allow water in the waiting area at the gate after passing the first security check is utterly ridiculous! if you want to enforce that policy you should provide free water at the gate. it was overheated and crowded to the brim and my wife went to get water after having gone through the second security check. She paid $10 for 2 bottles of water at the stand just before the gate and when she tried to come in again they did not allow her to go through... really a ridiculous situation!"
Cons: "Not only were we not told in advance that we'd have to go through security again in order to sit in the gate area, but we weren't allowed to bring in beverages we bought right next to the gate and there was no bathroom in the area we were being held before we were boarded. You'd have to go through security again. Also, the security guard accused my tall, black, injured, elderly father of being suspicious because he was sweating in spite of the fact that she wouldn't let him drink water unless he left the gate area even though he was injured. Never flying Copa again and never going to Panama again, not even for a layover."
Pros: "Arrived at the gate about 1 hour before departure due to heavy traffic. Attendant was pleasant and did a quick checkin."
Cons: "When you select the meal options in advance through the Copa Airlines site the phrasing of those ptions is not very clear and I was stuck with a choice I didn’t want (“meal with fruits” - it was pretty confusing in English or Spanish - while I assumed perhaps the dessert items would be substituted with fruit, instead they brought me a pretty mediocre fruit platter). They said there was no way to change this. Copa airlines personnel at Panama airport actually were kind of rude about it."
Pros: "The crew was really sweet."
Cons: "The waiting between flights"
Cons: "I did not like those seat in the middle . They are very"
Pros: "i dont know because i stills waiting for it!!!"
Cons: "no comments because i was supposed to be in ny right now amd im still sitting here at the airport waiting for my flight! because of the people in Venezuela! !"
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Lack of food"
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "No lunch"
Pros: "good food"
Cons: "they didn't turn the lights when i wanted to sleep on an overnight"
Pros: "Pretty much everything seemed professional and state-of-the-art."
Cons: "It would have been nice to hear the outside temperature announced when we arrived (Delta does it)."
Pros: "Nice and smooth Took off late but got there on time Pilot was pushing baby YEAH!!"
Cons: "If you fall asleep you will miss your meal and go hungry."
Pros: "The service is always very friendly on Copa. The boarding is timely. So is the off boarding. The pilots fly very well. Great landings and takeoffs."
Cons: "It was one of the most uncomfortable flights I've ever had. I was in seat 10E of a Boeing 737: in front of the exit row and could not recline my seat. The woman to my right was close to 300 lbs and was spilling into my seat. The gentleman next to me kept putting his elbows in my side. The cabin was way too hot -- uncomfortably so -- and the air vents barely pushed out air. The entertainment system on the plane was broken. I couldn't wait to land in NY."
Cons: "On top of what happened with the flight from NY to Panama the situation wasnt handle any better for the conexion. There was not priority conection to the inmediate following flight to Bogota. We had to wait four more hours to go to Bogota. Also the sits were accomodated terribly for me (I can understand they had to use what was available) but if Im traveling with a minor the airline should make sure the child is seated next or near me. Even though, I understood it was a detail that simply they did not control correctly, I requested to two flight attendants to please fix the problem for me, but I was totally ignored by both. When I told them a second time, they said to me there was nothing they can do. But coincidencially, right after I was told, he sat one passanger whom have not seat assigned, right in front of me on the emergency exit. The attendant said minors cant go there which is true, but I would have seated there, and my daughter on the sit that I was which was right behind me. That plus another rude encounter with one of the flight attendants when I was getting into the plane made of my experience with Copa Airlines my first and only trip with them. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Pros: "this veggie meal had dairy, which makes a big (postive) difference for me the entertainment worked much better. although if it had been working on my first flight, it would not have been enough variety in options for movies"
Cons: "seats were too close together not enough water available"
Cons: "The departure was delayed, but we arrived at the time that was scheduled in New Yotk."
Cons: "We got stuck in taxing for 30 min. We waited for our laggedge more than an hour!!!"
Pros: "I did allmy endeavors, very good service."
Pros: "I upgraded to business class and it was worth it! Very comfortable! The chair reclines, you have your own personal tv, the flight attendant is very attentive to all your needs, plenty of space, priority boarding."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Everything was good, food, service, the crew, no complain at all."

6 hour layover in Brasília is tough

I liked the sandwich. The new seat is not very comfortable

Smooth trip

My flight didn’t even fly. I want a FULL REFUND.

I was forced to fly on Copa rather than Avianca because they did not have any other flights to Bogotá. How is it possible that a Colombian airline could not offer another flight to the capital city of Colombia? Ridiculous

There was a delay in NYC, so to take the connection in Miami I had to run across the airport. Then the flight delayed in Miami, and the schedule in GRU - São Paulo was too tight, so I missed the flight to Porto Alegre. When coming from international flights, the connection time needs to be more spaced because of immigration bureaucracy.

Cons: "I never got to fly !!! I was flying to Rio de Janeiro from USA and my flight got canceled, so I never made it to Rio therefore I wasn’t able to fly to São Paulo . I called you guys and the airline to see what you could do for me . Very bad customer service considering there’s a pandemic. I understand certain flights are non refundable but during the circumstances you could’ve gave a voucher to use later but instead you tried to charge me more money to make changes when I didn’t even know when I was able to fly. To all this I lost my money and my chance to fly later . Never again I will buy anything from Kayak . You just lost a customer!!!"

Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage.

Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar.

Cons: "Boarding g process a bit chaotic"

Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Cons: "Refer to above. Both flights were horrible."
Cons: "Everyone excellent"
Pros: "boarding was in time, and comfort."
Cons: "comfort was very good"
Cons: "Not flying."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No refreshments"
Pros: "Everything!"
