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: "On time boarding"
Cons: "My bag got broken; one of the wheels was completely snatched. Now it is useless after its second use and they will only recognize near 30% of the price: so in this trip I’m loosing $100.00"
Cons: "More available for information and resolve situation to passenger lost her connections"
Cons: "Flight delayed four hours. Missed connection. Stuck in El Salvador overnight. 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: "More Colombian ethnic products like Chocoramo or Achiras"
Pros: "They didn't do anything more than a low cost line, and they aren't!"
Cons: "Better, food, beverage's, and happier personal, they look like they gonna be sick."

Cons: "No vegan/vegetarian food options"
Pros: "It was a delayed for 4 hours and even then was another dalayed of 48 minutes"
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: "good service"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "very nice experience nice flight food and beverages"
Pros: "Seats were confortable and the entertainmente system worked well"

Cons: "Poor quality for the price old plane"
Pros: "Avianca se destaca por su servicio y amabilidad de todos su personal! Adicionalmente los acuerdos con casi todos los aeropuertos para tener acceso a atención privilegiada y con acceso a salas VIP, amo viajar en Avianca de trabajar y con familia aún más!! Son mis preferidos"
Pros: "Flight was delayed but we still arrived on time. Seats were comfortable and food was good. Ride was smooth!"
Pros: "Overall this is one of the best airlines I often travel with. Their cost is economic compared to the other airlines flying and their customer service attention is one of the best. They always have food and drinks available to people and obviously have a priority when it comes to children. Their seats in economy are somewhat spacious and international flights always have good entertainment with their touch screen. You can listen to music, watch movies and even TV shows without any extra cost."
Pros: "Good service and on time"
Pros: "We parted late as alwats"
Pros: "The food was good and the chairs and equipment was confortable, very good service"

Cons: "Wrong name in check in on line"
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: "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."
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "We landed in Ny around 8:33 pm, I was able to get my bags out of the carrousel at 10:10 pm!! Unbelievable how slow it was!"
Pros: "Just a very good honest and helpful airline - a first class service from a reasonably priced airline. I was in business class and extremely comfortable and very reasonably priced for the extra room and service"
Cons: "My office in UK needed to change my departure day electronically. She was told she needed (for complex reasons) to go to London to do this - ridiculous as we live on the Isle of Wight. The other option was I needed to go to the airport to change it and pay supplement. Luckily it was only a 30min taxi ride from my hotel. The desk staff could see the issue and resolved the problem within 20mins - extremely helpful. A shame this could not be sorted in UK by phone and email"
Cons: "Attitude of the employees, organization of the airline, no assistance what so ever, lost baggage most terrible flight ever"
Cons: "It was my sister's first flight ever. She was late to the airport (LA traffic) and then treated absolutely horribly by the agents at the desk. She ended up missing the entire trip on account of these heartless agents who refused to honor the "flat tire rule.""
Pros: "They plane was comfortable and I loved the movies choices"
Cons: "I still didn't get one of my lauguage"
Cons: "There was a 45 min delay on the returning flight."
Pros: "they were very accomodating"
Pros: "The complimentary blankets and pillows"
Cons: "The crew constantly putting our window shades up"
Cons: "I'm writing this review in behalf of my mother, who had a nightmare in Lima, Peru. Avianca changed her flight without prior notice (email or phone). She is a 72 years old woman that had a stroke three years ago, can't be exposed to any stressful situation, she needed to take medication at 9:30am LIFETIME! They didn't asked if she had a health condition, they just decided to change her flight from the one at 10:00am to the one at 5:00pm. Maybe they would be able to guess it as she was so nervous, she showed worried and confused in the counter where they informed her the "news" during check-in process. She arrived 3 1/2 hours in advance to the airport in order to avoid flight stress. She doesn't have family in Lima, so they sent her to a nice hotel (but far), arrived at 10:15am so she took her medication late. Very stressful episode for me and my family after trying to contact her as the hotel didn't let her call us (Avianca said she would have an international courtesy call). My mother called a friend of mine informing her the situation, that is how I knew about this. She didn't ate correctly that day as her food has to be low sodium. They should have arranged her flight in a same group plane and avoid old persons (with conditions) wait 9 hours. There are no words to express my frustration as nobody could help me in Avianca customer service. They should have priorities and consideration for elder people as this kind of situations are harmful for them, their blood pressure and their hearts! CERO COMMON SENSE!"
Pros: "es una de las mejores aerolineas de la region , no cabe duda , y ademas consegui un boleto a un excelente precio ."

Cons: "way overbooked and put on stand by for no reason."
Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"
Cons: "Better flight scheduling."
Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of the gate from ATL. No one was available for at least 15 minutes to move the jetway to let us off the plane when we arrived in RDU."
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Cons: "Value for the price."
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "Please reduce your delays - again we took off with more than an hour delay and by definition you are responsible of that disagreement, you are the company I am paying for the service...."

Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."
Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"
Cons: "The flight was late, extremely turbulent, and was spent mostly under 10k feet, so wifi was available for only a very short time"

Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"

Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Cons: "Delta’s computer system was down. Long wait at the counter even though I did web check-in."
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."
Pros: "All the staff and flight crew we're really great and thoughtful. Helpful with finding overhead compartments on a full flight."
Cons: "Seats could be bigger, with more leg room. But we know that's not gonna happen."
Pros: "Crew was kind, entertainment and food were good"
Cons: "Seats are really tight"
Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "Employees so so not friendly"
Cons: "More professionally"
Pros: "Flight was good as planned."
Pros: "Crew's service good, punctuality excelent"
Cons: "No Entertainment at all"
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: "The crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable. This was a night flight, so I would have loved if they turned off the lights during the flight so I could sleep."
Cons: "Checking in was very slow - food should improve vastly !"
Cons: "Check in is very poor in Panama airport"
Cons: "Copa did not allow me to board plane with setvice animal. Stating paperwork is not acceptable for travel to Peru. I bought tickets on avianca and traveled to Peru and had no issues entering Peru with paperwork. Also copa lost luggage for 3 days spent 3500 on copa and received nothing in return"
Pros: "Amazin !! Thank you"
Pros: "Very good crew."
Cons: "Baggage slow"
Cons: "Traveling with another airline!"
Pros: "Puntual Airline"
Pros: "la atención en el vuelo"
Cons: "la comida"
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Cons: "I lost one of my suitcases!!!!"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. Crew was ok."
Cons: "Lousy food. Small, old aircraft (737). No individual screens, no phone chargers, asked for a repeat hot dish and was told yes, but never got it. It lacks behind many other carriers. I was expecting much better."
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: "Great flight. Decent sized seat. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Our flights were delayed and on top of that, we had to run to reach the gate (which was changed without any notice)"
Pros: "The crew was attentive & good; my meal was good and I enjoyed the wine served. my seat was comfortable to sit in."
Cons: "For business class, I expected my seat to recline more. The footrest didn't extend much, and it wasn't really conducive to sleeping... my feet/legs were very uncomfortable. I expected better than that. Also, I tried to use the entertainment screen & it didn't work well; then it froze & wouldn't work at all."
Pros: "Nice wide seat."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline much at all. Food only so so."
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."
Cons: "Food very average"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat"
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: "The crew was attentive Ontime"
Cons: "Limited movie choices Limited legroom (like many airlines in cattle class) No chess in games"
Pros: "Overall good flight."
Pros: "Everything was on time and since we didn’t arrive in till 11pm the food helped in not having to search for a place that was open. They served 3 small meals on a 7hr flight. Impressive"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Pleasant and friendly crew and service."
Cons: "No on board entertainment"
Pros: "Arrived at the gate about 1 hour before departure due to heavy traffic. Attendant was pleasant and did a quick checkin."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "The plane was FREEZING. I was so cold and there were no available blankets. I've asked the flight attendant to raise the temperature and she said she'll do it but she didn't. I was still cold an hour after we landed and I left the plane."
Pros: "For the most part a punctual, comfortable flight, the crew did their job well. No entertainment, small snack etc."
Cons: "They broke off one of the 4 wheels of my checked-in bag rendering it useless. I approached the luggage complaint section of Copa Airlines and they said they only fix or replace bags when they make an actual hole in the fabric, which would basically require using a sharp knife or a chainsaw. Broken wheels (mine was completely gone), handles etc don't count, in other words, they can throw around your bags like they mean nothing to them because their policy protects them, not you. I'm pretty sure Copa isn't the only airline doing this but it needs to be said regardless, it's really not fair the way they treat / abuse customers' belongings without making themselves responsible for hardly any of it."
Cons: "persons from Copa at boarding time, lost....!"
Pros: "Service, food and very clean airplane."
Cons: "We like this airline"
Pros: "the two agents at the gate where kind and helpful and this review is not directly at the employees of Copa. however this is not my first rodeo with Copa on their oversold strategy and they should have sent out an email about the situation and certain people would have stayed home or their hotel for next flight."
Cons: "$400 voucher (less than price of our ticket) to use for future Copa flight. LOL. because of the many people being bumped, it took 2 hours to process all our vouchers (taxi/hotel/$400) *the flight was at 6:14pm but we knew we couldn't get on around 5:40pm, and left the airport at 8:20pm"
Pros: "Food, short length of flight"
Cons: "Colombian customs forms were only in Spanish; would've helped if crew offered assistance to those who needed some help w translation"
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "I don't understand why we go through security and then need to clear out of the gate and go through security all over again. That was strange to me"
Pros: "Everything was top notch"
Cons: "Not a single complaint"
Pros: "Boarding is very orderly. Flights are always on time with Copa, which makes them a very reliable carrier. Planes are modern, clean and well maintained. Copa offers free headphones, meal and drinks, which is very rare on short flights. I was glad to enter a cool plane, as the Tocumen Airport was without air conditioning service."
Cons: "Tocumen Airport is always crowded, noisy and this time around was without air conditioning. As their main costumer, Copa Airlines should pressure the airport authorities to keep a standby AC system in place or replace it with one that can better handle extreme traffic of people."
Pros: "Friendly staff was there all along the flight. There wasn't a moment where the crew members weren't making sure you needed something."
Cons: "The recently released movies selection was very limited other airlines have a bigger selection of movies"
Pros: "Boarding process went very smooth and plenty of legroom and overhead storage"
Cons: "Volume didn't work on armrest . Volume was stuck on very high volume making the in flight movie not watchable. No choice for food"
Pros: "Pontuality, hospitality"
Cons: "food, entertainment is null"
Cons: "No individual media screens for 5+ hour flight. Had individual screens on the flight down. Also, had to go through security again at the gate in Panama city which meant getting rid of water purchased within the terminal and there was no where within the security parameter to buy water."
Pros: "I like that my seat was comfortable and I had movies to watch"
Cons: "It was not clear on leaving the plain where to collect luggage"
Pros: "Great food, great crew assistant"
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."
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"
Pros: "The crew were very good and friendly."
Cons: "The extreme and continous turbulence during all the flight time. I know it´s about the atmospheric conditions but it was so long..."
Cons: "We were faced with many difficulties throughout the process including delays at every stage (plane boarding, takeoff, bus shuttles, etc.) of four different flights. The flight to Panama City was a significantly more enjoyable experience, but the return trip was absolutely miserable. After being boarded, we waited on the runway with no explanation for over a half hour. Then the flight staff came through with a very mediocre dinner and drink; however, they never came back for anything else until the customs form, and any attempts to flag them down were fruitless. When I finally got their attention, I requested water, and never received it. It was an incredibly frustrating and thirsty experience."
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived in Panama City on time which was great for our connection. In- flight movies were good as was the food and drinks. Leg space was better than some airlines. Plane was nearly full."
Cons: "Major turbulence made the flight miserable"
Cons: "Seats were changed twice for this flight. It was very cold on the flight"
Cons: "Flight status"
Pros: "This was the best plane I’ve ever been on. 737-800"
Pros: "Short flight. Great helpers with my mom!"
Cons: "My tv didn’t work my WiFi didn’t work and no beverage service"
Pros: "Premium seating made a huge difference. Even though I am petite, I had a laptop, tablet and work that had to go under the seat in front of me, and I still had plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The seatback offered free streaming of AA entertainment on my tablet, but when I opened the browser and selected entertainment, the only option was to pay $9.95, so I just watched downloaded Netflix episodes. Plus the movies offered on AA streaming didn't look especially good."
Cons: "Gate person could have been more accommodating given I was not supplied a boarding pass. Had to get seat assigned at gate and she was irritated that I did not have a boarding pass. On plane stewardess was indifferent to issues with chairv and my attempt to change seat."
Pros: "Apologetic crew"
Cons: "Massively delayed with no compensation"
Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I liked getting regular meals/snacks."
Cons: "More seat room! Better food. Maybe something other than pasta for a vegetarian version? More fruit and vegetables, less bread. All the video screens stopped worked halfway through the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin temp, great in flight entertainment, and excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Nothing actually. It was a very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Food and service was very good."
Cons: "Relocating us to vacant seats so that we weren't crammed all together."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "Limited leg room for such a long flight. The person in front of my husband reclined their seat and he could barely move for the 8 hour flight. Check in process at Heathrow was not wonderful as there was plenty of seats but were not open for people to sit in. It was not pleasant holding a 33 pound toddler waiting in 30 minute line"
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing"
Cons: "Paying for upgrade seats that was tight"
Cons: "Entirely too crowded."
Cons: "Least favorite leg of the trip. The seats were super tight with very little room. The crew was the least friendly I have met. The food was the least pleasing I have ever had."
Pros: "Exit Row Seating"
Cons: "Delayed Flight 1 hour and 20 minutes"
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick."
Cons: "My departure changed three times, The first change was an 82-minute delay, then a 2-hour delay, then a 30-minute delay. Overall, the final departure as only 30 minutes after my initially scheduled departure, but it caused a lot of frustration."
Pros: "Good flight. Fairly comfortable flight. Attendants Were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The movie was mediocre. Biscuit cookie was tasteless. Would prefer peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "Landed on time. AA is mostly on or before schedule. Definitely like that part. Smooth flying as well."
Cons: "No interactions with the crew this time. Boarding is okay."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and very attentive. The food was excellent and served almost continuously - and free! Seats were comfortable and roomy enough to move around. Flight was not full and we were able to lie down to sleep a little."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Broken in-flight entertainment system, broken ac plug, broken arm rest"
Pros: "Flt on time. Arrived on time"
Cons: "A young child screemed constantly. Not sure how you would address. Have had kids so been there"

Pros: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Being stuck on the runway"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "When I finally got a seat on the plane, it was fine. The lady at the counter was very helpful!! She helped me get on a flight since LATAM had changed my flight until the next day."
Pros: "LIKED NOTHING. 5.5 hour delay on a redeye?! What's to like?"
Cons: "EVERYTHING was poorly handled by AA for this delay. You're at LAX, no pilot? no 1st officer? Where's the planning? And we boarded the plane on time, deboarded the plane, they gave us warm drinks and pretzels and cookies to tide us over. 5.5 hours later? we take off. Nothing AA did was done right for the customer."
Pros: "Direct Flight from LAX to RDU on a redeye."
Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hours at LAX. Boarded on time, waited at gate for 1.5 hours and then had to get off. During our delay waiting for a 1st Officer, the Captain times out. NO BACKUP CAPTAINS or 1st OFFICERS AT LAX? Then miraculously during our 3rd hour waiting for a Captain they discovered the 1st Officer was going to time out. So, rather than KNOW this while searching for a Captain, they waited for 3 hours and then had to find a 1st Officer to fill in. Result 2.5 more hours of delay. Even the Flight crew was in disbelief on this one. I think we should all get reimbursed and triple miles for this snafu. Not weather or mechanical - just poorly managed time -- BY A MAJOR AIRLINE - INEXCUSABLE!"
Cons: "Nothing great"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours due to mechanical issues"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, pretty good food and films."
Cons: "Significant departure delay, contradictory information from initial airport check in to gate staff, beverage selection is okay but prices for more than the basics are astronomical."
Pros: "Crew was the best."
Cons: "Boarding order does not make sense. Go back to the traditional system of boarding; last rows go first."
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Pros: "Great movie selection, including ones currently in theaters."
Cons: "Only received pretzels for snacks, while others received cookies."
Pros: "No delays, speedy boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "Nothing..it was great."
Pros: "Great customer service and attention"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "huge delay 7 hours??????????????? I ended up sleeping the rest of the night in the airport"
Pros: "Getting there"
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours bc flight attendant didn't show up"
Cons: "My 3rd cancelled American flight this summer. No fun. Takes twice as long to get home when they do that. Time to switch airlines."
It was so easy getting thru security. They did change the gate 3 times but not an issue. Boarding process was easy.
Delayed almost 3 hours. No food or alcohol. Hot plane with no air.
Cons: "Didn't take this flight because a fire broke out in the terminal. I got rebooked to almost 24 hours later and a friend I was flying with got rebooked 36 hours later. Customer service at the airport was not willing to help us and we could not connect to customer service on the phone."
Cons: "The fact I was delayed 2 hours. Missed my connection. Spoke with customer care about getting a flight out of Toronto the next morning because of connection issues instead of late that evening."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything about this flight, except that we arrived safely. I had the last seat, next to the toilet, and that container or whatever it is, was dirty. Every time someone flushed, I was bathed in the smell of urine. It was raining in Toronto; consequently, my checked bag was wet through. I’m glad I was coming home rather than arriving at a vacation destination, where all my stuff would’ve been wet. I’d like to see some effort put into keeping my bag dry. Also, the passengers had to slog through the rain to get on the plane!"
Pros: "on time departure, early arrival"
Pros: "More opportunities to eat Tim hortons"
Cons: "Having to wait 24hra to leave Canada"
Cons: "In 25 years of traveling I think this is the worst food I ever had in a airplane. Lucky that the butter and the bread were eatable"
Pros: "We got home early by about a half hour and the flight was smooth and quick."
Cons: "Didn’t find the crew to be as friendly as I have had in the past. They wanted us to pay for headphones. Was travelling alone with an infant makes coordination etc hard. Didn’t offer help or anything."
Pros: "Clean, friendly crew remembered how we had our tea/coffee from the earlier service"
Cons: "Economy is never very comfortable but was better than a lot of other airlines"
Pros: "the asian guy steward was the best he made my 12 year old happy by providing the pizza and food that she ordered perfect its just the professional way he serve it was exceptional a kind word"
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Cons: "t took the crew 3 hrs on the tarmac to figure out the plane was unsafe to fly!"
Cons: "I thought I was getting a good deal compared to other airlines but was shocked later to learn I had to pay extra to reserve a seat. When this was added it actually cost more. No entertainment for an 8 hour international flight! Really? Only one checked bag for an international flight. I’ve experienced much better on other airlines."
Pros: "The vegan meal was tasty"
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. My partner’s entertainment screen would not work so I was not in a position to use mine. Air Canada doesn’t understand vegan. Offered us egg and cheese for a snack. Typical air travel. Long live the train."
Pros: "Everything but most importantly the excellent service onboard with some of the most caring and genuinely especially given that we were travelling with our four month old baby. And what a comfy plane the 787-9 is!"
Cons: "I’m nitpicking but the check-in experience was well inferior to the excellent airport and in-flight experience. The agent seemed to treat us as more of a nuisance than a client with special needs (4-month old baby). A little smile would go a long way to fix this."
Pros: "It made it to Athens smoothly & on time."
Cons: "There was no movies available to watch. Flight attendant said we need the app to watch movies however there wasn't enough time to download the app before the flight took off to download it in time."
Cons: "Checked carry on from Montreal to RDU. Bag was never entered in the system (customer service at Toronto stop could not find record for the claim tag we were given), which caused a problem with customs. Bag did arrive with rest of luggage at destination, however."
Cons: "I was not expecting air canada rouge to be low cost and for a 6 hours flight they should have offered complimentary food ... it caught me by surprise"
Pros: "Ease of checking in, timely announcements and updates. Smooth ride"
Cons: "At the gate, we were told our plane would leave soon. An hour later, they announced the flight was cancelled and we were briskly escorted out of the terminal, told to go through customs and pick up our luggage, which had never even made it on to the plane. They were not re-booking flights at the airport, and the phone lines went to a voice mail message telling us to call back in a few days. I was stranded in Toronto with no phone and no where to stay. It's a week later and I still have not heard anything from from, even though I've called and emailed and sent snail mail."
Pros: "As we approached Raleigh ~3:15am, over 4.5 hours late, the pilot apologized for the delay, which was thoughtful of him. And we arrived in one piece, so that was good too."
Cons: "While waiting for the flight, I whined on FB about our probable delay, and a friend responded with "I'm guessing that you're crammed at the end of that terminal hallway with about 10 other gates of people with no airplanes, no information, and 2 AC employees." Spot on. Apparently such delays, understaffed gates, and failures to communicate with passengers are par for the course. Friend even predicted the free bagels AC would eventually offer at the restaurant that closed 3 hours before our flight finally left. He didn't predict the multiple announcements about assorted other flights not having functional restrooms so please pee before boarding."
Pros: "The crews were nice and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "There were so much miscommunication. Coming from Hong Kong it was late for 3 hrs , then I need to pick up my luggages and went thru immigration. Missed the flight to Toronto, checked at the counter and was told did not need to pick up my luggage until I got to Atlanta. Well at Toronto, my luggages didn't go through. I had to pick them up and went thru immigration on the USA side again. Missed my flight again! It was so frustrating except all the employees were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Timing was right on from the beginning"
Cons: "Seats were not the most comfortable for coach flight but still fine"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, both flights each way were on time and the crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Nothing. I spent the whole 5+ hour flight cursing (in my mind) the entire Air Canada executive team. This was my first, and will be my last trip on this horrible airline."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. I'm assuming that all Air Canada executives are either very short people, or they've never tested their product. I've never flown on such an absurdly uncomfortable airline seat configuration, and I fly over 100,000 miles a year worldwide (including discount airlines in China!). If you have long legs, and your flight is more that two hours, DO NOT fly Air Canada Rouge. You've been warned!"
Pros: "Captain kept cre informed"
Cons: "Washrooms too far and had ti wait fir staff ti finish serving. Aisles very narrow"
Pros: "Flight attendant did his best to make light of a tough situation."
Cons: "The flight was gradually postponed more and more, with very little communication on the ground. What communication we did get was spotty, and not delivered in a pleasant manner."
Pros: "On time, a huge variety of new movies, the meal was very good."
Cons: "I've never been on a transatlantic flight that didn't offer a drink with dinner. Plus, not having a TV screen for passenger's entertainment is out dated. Time to upgrade these planes, or don't use them for long haul flights"
Pros: "the flight attendant was VERY friendly and helpful. we had her on another flight as well and were very impressed."
Cons: "the flight was delayed, and there was so much confusion as to the departure gate at the airport. it kept switching and airline reps were not helpful or friendly on the matter. it was a huge mess"
Pros: "The Canadian airports are much nicer than the US airports. Things seem to flow better. They are cleaner and have more services than the US. They also have less people. Air Canada is a very good airline. They had schedule issues like any airline, but they handled them well and communicated them well. The staff was friendly and helpful. The meals were very good. Our trip was long, but that was due to our choices. I was very satisfied and highly recommend Air Canada."
Cons: "All the planes are full. Seating is cramped unless you pay a lot for an upgrade. We found connection times tight in Montreal. We had to jog each time to make our connection."
Cons: "Every air Canada flight I had on this trip had horrible turbulence and rough landings. The turbulence may or may not be the pilot's fault, but the landings are probably the pilot's fault."
Cons: "my luggage and my baby's car seat was delayed. I arrived at 10 pm and my luggage and baby's car seat was missing. I was told they will deliverer it to me the next day, but I have not received my stuff now its been two days"
Pros: "Comfortable, quiet, fantastic technology"
Cons: "Flight got delayed over 1 hr"
Cons: "Did not like the idea that we had to pay for use of Ipad to watch shows , especially since I didnt have my own."
Cons: "Delayed for no good reason. Flights were back to back way too closely so there was no time for delays"
Pros: "the whole process was great. staff at the airport and in flight were all friendly and helpful."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was not as good as american carriers and there were no movies. Also, no one told us that we would have to retrieve our bags and put them on belt so we had to go through line twice"
Pros: "All flying may have weather issues. At almost 1 am there was a wonderful ticket agent that was in charge of all of the rescheduled flights in the "basement" area of the Toronto airport. Thanks to her for her pleasant attitude."
Cons: "Lack of communication: 1. There were gate changes that just showed up on the board with no verbal announcement. 2. There were a large number of rescheduled flights on July 1, 2016. We were all "herded" into a small, hot area. It seems like this time of day has a number of late flights that don't seem to have a good plan. 3. We landed in Greensboro and the pilot walked in to tell us after the fact. Come on, an announcement before the actual landing would have been good communication."
Pros: "Leg room was great"
Cons: "I was given someones special meal without knowing then the crew member kept saying to the girl behind me "I think she took it". I was embarrassed to be honest. The girl behind me ended up not eating her last meal because of this mistake lol"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "I missed this flight due to my other flight being late."
Pros: "Newer plane in good condition. Crew was good"
Cons: "Food was pretty blah"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and crew was friendly"
Cons: "The chairs are not very adjustable and are too tall for me (feet don't reach floor and no footrest that could work). The selection of movies was good, but a bit small."
Pros: "very nice people, food ok"
Cons: "Bad organization at Montreal for special passengers, plus technical pb => flight delayed 45mn"
Pros: "I upgraded to be in the front for more leg room cuz I'm a tall lady. It was the first time I did that and I was comfy. Definitely doing that again. I also like how discreet the flight attendant was when I requested a seat belt extender."
