Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very clean and safe. Practicing social distancing. Provided hand sanitizer wipes and snacks in a bag"
Cons: "When disembarking the plane there should have been more organization for social distancing. There shouldn’t be people standing over your trying to hurry and get off the plane. Everyone should stay seated until it’s time for your row to get off. None of the flight staff made people do this"

Cons: "Better service"
Pros: "Crew AND passengers were great, polite & calm. Seats are kinda squashy, tight. Food was yummy."
Cons: "Don't think you could make general seats more roomy for average sized people? Luggage bins were squashy too."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Nothing they could do about the maintenance issue that we experienced."
Cons: "Hour delay due to a maintenance issue. This was a hassle in and of itself, but the flight was also on New Year's Eve and ended up getting us to Buffalo about 20 minutes before midnight, which was a bit disappointing when I had made previous plans for the night. Also, I found the cabin to be very cold during the flight, but it was pretty short so I didn't complain."
Cons: "Every thing was excellent"
Pros: "Delta cramps people into these planes and forces you to put your bags under a seat because they stuff at the overhead spaces. They nickel and dime you for every single thing. There was even one person I saw who had to pay for his headphones to listen to the onboard entertainment. I think Delta should quit being so cheap with the profits they make and give it back to your flying customers. It borders on gouging."

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."
Pros: "Demora para subir al avión"
Cons: "Demora para subir al avión"
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: "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."

They said there was no way to change this. Copa airlines personnel at Panama airport actually were kind of rude about it."

The old business class seats were very uncomfortable. Having no help from representatives to issue a boarding pass"
Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."
