Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "can they squeeze any more people into a plane?"
Pros: "Cabin staff was excellent as always!"
Cons: "We ordered our meals online and they didn’t have them when we were asked about meal. All they had was butternut squash and we ordered the chicken meal. Also the amount of people from coach that use the restroom and make it hard for us to use is out of control. Then if I’m paying a premium price for travel I would expect the seats to not be 29 years old and so uncomfortable that I could barely walk when I got off plane. Please upgrade your seats to reflect the prices you demand."
Pros: "A full complément of movies to choose from"
Pros: "I like the spaciousness in the front for your feet."
Cons: "The flight lasted about 5 hours, but they only offered limited small snack (chip or granola bar) and some drinks. They have sandwich and other real food but it costs around $9.5. Some other airlines provide free full meal even the flight time was only 3 hours."
Pros: "Crew Entertainment"
Cons: "Two hour delay"
Pros: "Also...spacious seating by coach standards"
Cons: "Never a fan of boarding zones but it was fine"
Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."

Pros: "On time, quick boarding and exit. Friendly crew. Got my luggage off the line quickly too!"
Pros: "I'm impressed every time I fly with Alaska. I was so skeptical when they bought Virgin. We were avid VA members and I have to say, things have been pretty good. Keep it up!"
Pros: "The attention with us"
Cons: "Gogo movie flights didnt work"
Pros: "on time, somewhat"
Cons: "very cramped seats; are my husband and I profiled on airline flights? why are we always placed exactly over the wings or in the rear of the plane, with all the babies? we are senior citizens and flying three to five hours with babies crying all around us is not a pleasant flight. So we up graded to first class on this return flight. Is that the only way to get out of being profiled to sit in the rear of the plane with the crying for three hours?"
Cons: "I haven't flown a first class this poor ever. No blankets, we were not offered drinks until we were at cruising altitude, no magazines, felt very dirty and unkept. Food was less than desirable. Alaska needs to improve their overall service and cabins."
Pros: "Flight crew were very attentive, never flown first class before, went well and stress free."
Cons: "Had a problem at motel, for some reason you can send all the money you want to Mexico, via debit and credit cards, yet when you get there those same cards do not work at all. Needless to say had to cancel vacation. Alaska airlines kept me on the phone for hours, quickly explained what happened, she said don't worry about it, I'll take care of you. Just go to the airport, Before I hung up, already knew something was fishie. Get to the airport (more hrs on phone) they haven't a clue of what I'm talking about. Airport supposedly doesn't haven't phones to call alaska airlines (lie). She pushes off another 375.00 dollar ticket. Raked me over the coal, and created an endless catastrophe, needless to say barelly made it out of mexico. Good thing is, card worked to get me the hell out off there. BYE BYE PUERTO VALLARTA. Had to rob the bank just to get the heck out of there, but was never so happy in my life when the plane started take off. Never again"

Pros: "Fly Alaska for the best servicethey upgraded us to first class because of my husband's military service"
Cons: "they upgraded us to first class because of my husband's military service"
Cons: "I requested a bag of ice because I had intense sciatica pain. I think it was caused by the hard seats, The bag of ice melted, and because it did not have a double bag the water leaked causing me to get all wet. I requested a towel and got a pack of paper napkins which were not enough to dry anything at all. I was told by staff that there were not any real towels on board. I think this is a serious problem. All this made the trip unpleasant and I got off the airplane all wet. All my clothes and coat were very wet.' Marta"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Early arrival."

The ticket kiosk did not recognize my confirmation number or name so I was instructed to wait in the assistance line and I was furious- swore I'd never fly with Alaska again- but then the ticket agent was fantastic, calm and helpful and helped put me in a better mood. Overall flight was great. Felt safe, hardly any turbulence and friendly flight staff. Flight was on time. No delays."

Cons: "I didn't know ahead of time that I was stopping San Francisco before going to Portland"
Pros: "The plane flew!"
Cons: "I felt like I was being hawked services instead of anything being included in the flight. No longer are there any services included besides a much smaller and more uncomfortable seat and a soft drink. I was very surprised by how much time it took for the crew to try and sell the use of ipads, food, an Alaska credit card, and who knows what else. They didn't even have blankets on board. The crew was kind and professional. I feel bad that their job is essentially being sales people in the air these days. It was especially poor for a 5-hour international flight with no meal service, or food at all besides one tiny bag of pretzels and no free beer or wine. Definitely, will be using another airline in the future."
Cons: "No tv players or video players on a 4 hour flight made it feel long"

Cons: "Flight attendants could be friendlier."
Pros: "Seats are good and crew excellent"
Cons: "I miss the jack Daniels"
Pros: "El entretenimiento es siempre bueno en Avianca y volvieron las cobijas en los vuelos largos!!!"
Cons: "Entiendo que bajen la cantidad y calidad de comida por costos, pero que las auxiliares de vuelo dejen la cabina económica sola, con una botella de agua y unos vasos atrás durante más de tres horas, no tiene presentación. Si no quieren volver a dar maní o algo para picar en caso de necesidad, ok, pero vendan aunque sea!! Un vuelo de 6 horas con un yogurt y un cereal mini es invivible"
Pros: "Perfect trip"
Pros: "The seats were spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "My Avianca flights in both directions were some of the slowest boarding experiences I’ve ever had. Ten minutes after boarding time for this flight they changed the gate to across the terminal"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "More water offered during trip"
Pros: "Online check-in, boading"
Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat."
Cons: "The person next to me on the flight took up more than one seat and the small seat in economy didn't leave me with a comfortable amount of space. On the long flight the crew only came by once to offer a beverage with the meal. They also only gave an extremely small cup of soda without even providing a full can. Myself and all those around me spent the flight thirsty."
Cons: "I was completely rerouted at the last minute to take 3 flights instead of just one and completely missed all of my other connections. Avianca forced to to travel for over 36 hours and continued to have all of my rerouted flights delayed. It was the worst travel experience of my life and i received no help or compensation for missing all of my other flights. All thy gave me was one stale muffin. I will never fly with this airline again."

Cons: "The pushy attitude of the check in hostesses"

Cons: "The service and entertainment wasn't as good traveling on this airline to the US as it was traveling from the US. Barely any entertainment besides fold down small TVs for every 4 rows. The app they tell you to download was useless on this flight too."
Cons: "There was a 7 hour delay for maintenance. A plane which was scheduled to depart 5 hours before ours going to the same location took off on time. Unacceptable."
Cons: "The flight did not happen because you referred me to Webjet. My meeting was rescheduled and I cancelled within 24 hours however Webjet charged me $450 to rebook. I will not be using Kayak or Webjet again."
Cons: "Did not fly as scheduled - still in Bogota"

Cons: "No personal entertainment units."

Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "We had a 6 hour delay after traveling all day and being up all night. The actual flight, when we finally got on, was packed and uncomfortable. Our seats didn't recline and were very uncomfortable."

Cons: "The lounge in la Paz needs serious work. No coffee no water not friendly. Bogota lounge was excellent."
Cons: "The screen in my daughter's seat did not work for the entire duration of the flight. It is the second time that something similar happens to my family or me while flying in this airline in the last two months."
Cons: "Bad customer services. My entertainment system was not working so, I called the flight attendant. They were chatting inside the kitchen and one of them responded after 15-17 minutes telling me that someone will reset my monitor... never happened."
Pros: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed to perform some last minute maintenance work and crew wasn't very organized during the boarding procedures."

Cons: "First plane, small. Food"
Pros: "It is super comfortable and the entertainment is great!"

Pros: "Yeah, I had no problems with Avianca"
Pros: "The flight departed on time, in-service food (not as expected flying economy), arrived on time to IAD. Overall: good."

Cons: "I was asked to be at the La Paz airport 3 hr before international flight, so did I, only to see the check in open 1.5 hours before the flight, more consistency needed"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "It would be nice to have food options that do not include meat. However, in general the food was poor."
Pros: "Poor attitude by crew members. Upon arrival back to the USA, found luggage had been broken and items lost. I spent 1 hour filing paperwork with Avianca- two months later and I have not heard from them. Unbelievable. Will not fly Avianca again."
Cons: "Everything. I missed the flight because I was sleeping near the gate after two night flights and no one called me to board the airplane. I got only stress from this flight. Regards, Iadviga"
Pros: "The crew was so prifessional"
Cons: "Come on, business class is better in the train than in a plane? My foot was a box of 20 small chips, sausage and a very small candy"
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."

Cons: "Plane got delayed several times. They changed the gate 7 times. And then they lost my luggage. Not a good experience with Delta."
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "The planes were actually Delta. Comfortable and spacious in economy. Amazing crew at the airport and on the plane."
Cons: "Honestly nothing to improve"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and appreciative of our business."
Cons: "Gate agents should announce the new boarding categories. I'm a seasoned traveler, yet I did not know the categories. It was more intuitive to use Zones numbers, instead of what you have now."
Pros: "All was smooth on s busy day in Puerto Vallarta. Everyone cool, supported by good crew,"
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing with seats not being assigned ahead of time"
Pros: "The snack between two meals"
Cons: "The main dish of meal, Tooth brush"

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"

Pros: "Great service and staff. On time both directions."

Cons: "Boarding was a little crazy but everything in Mexico is a little loco so it was to be expected I suppose. The ramp crew handled things well in the end"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "Flight all left on time and actually arrived early. Nice to have free movies, shows, etc. Good selection of current stuff"
Cons: "Seat spacing width is too narrow. Knee room was good as we had an exit row."
Pros: "Crew worked incredible well with all the passengers that lost connection flights."
Cons: "Same thing, flight was delayed about three hours."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."

Pros: "Flight was fine. Limited selection of entertainment, but adequate (barely) for the flight time. Food was decent."

Cons: "Wider seats in economy"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Initially separated from my minor child and had to change seats. Also, my tweezers were taken away."
Pros: "Everything was good except taking off on time."

That was a really funny excuse, like we couldn’t see other planes take off consistently. I’m sorry Copa but PTY is not ATL or LAX were that can actually be an excuse. We ended up arriving late"
Pros: "Excellente attention flying, very friendly, very nice and clean inside the airplanes."
Cons: "Need more personal at the counters servicing people when checking in at the airport in Panama."

Pros: "The flight & the attendants were all great - the food was good & the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost an 1 hr. waiting for the airport to load the luggage. I could not understand the person making the announcements on the plane. It was garbled & so none of us really knew what he said on any of his announcements, We arrived at D.C. & we did not get our luggage. They said at the D.C. airport we would receive an email within 24 hours regarding our luggage. We didn't. They gave us a # to call - no one answered that #. We were supposed to get an email with our case # - we didn't. We were told on the plane we would get a bag of necessities - but we didn't. My husband had to keep calling different #'s to try to get ahold of someone to tell them about our luggage."

Pros: "Service is good and food is fine"
Cons: "Not happy with the lack of tv screens and movies."
Pros: "All of my flights were on time. Flight staff and gate attendants were curteous. Planes were clean and service on the plane was wonderful."
Pros: "The only good thing was boarding"
Cons: "Well i would think it would be a better expiernce cuz I've heard that copa was a good airline and their service was excelent but i was wrong the food was dry and the people were rude the entertainment was a joke. The music would play the same song's over and over."
Cons: "There needs to be some snack options in business class after the light meal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice, and caring, they brought me a new pair of headsets when the original one broke."
Cons: "Most airlines allow a business class passenger to take one guest into the lounge: Copa does not. Worse, the check-in staff at Panama said that it did, but on arrival at the lounge, the staff there said it did not. Awkward and embarrassing. No inflight refreshments, etc. apart from the hot breakfast."
Pros: "I have flown with COPA for years and they never fail to impress me. Food is great for what it is (aircraft food) one of the best I have ever had. flight is pleasant and smooth most of the time. always super helpful and make it a seamless experience"

Cons: "Planes are old and outdated, no entertainment for medium/longer-haul flights"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "The cre in charge if business classs was incredibly unfriendly and rude. His name is Rocardo and he should not be a business class crew. He was slow, uninterested, forgetful and at times rude. Cops needs to step up its service"

Pros: "Good food and movies. Great staff. On time and plenty of room in seating."
Pros: "Loved the FREE on-demand movies!"

Cons: "Seats did not recline. There was no notification of this when selecting seats."
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: "All the standard Star Alliance greatness."
Cons: "On my return flight we were searched again in Panama City for our connection to the US, and any liquids (even though they were purchased after security screening) were thrown in the trash. I don't actually know if this is a Copa policy, or a Panamanian airport security policy, but it makes NO SENSE! All liquids sold past security have been screened. There is no reason to toss out my bottle of water that I over-paid for in the little airport convenience store."
Pros: "everything was great."

Pros: "The movies and the crew were very friendly."
Cons: "The waiting on the departure of the plane"
Cons: "Took off an hour late for no reason. Just sat on the runway watching planes take off. Made us not arrive back in DC until after 2am."
Pros: "Love it great service great flight"
Cons: "Security at the gate was an annoyance. We could not bring on drinks we had previously purchased after clearing security. We could not figure out how to transport liquor we would have liked to have purchased at Lima duty free shop through Panama and on to US. Prefer when individual TV sets are available. The meal was light, could have been more substantial."
Cons: "The cabin was too cold.....and we had at least three different departure gates"
Pros: "Food was provided."
Cons: "Took off late."
Cons: "The fact that we were delayed for 2.5 hrs. But that was the act of God."
Pros: "I was pleased with everything"
Cons: "Everything was good!"

Cons: "This was fine because it was a United flight"
Pros: "Everything was great, very little turbulence and the crew was great!"
Cons: "The only complaint I have are the little little flaps on the head rest. You can adjust them to rest your head unfortunately my wasn’t able to hold my head in place."

Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Lots of leg room! Friendly crew."
Cons: "More leg room."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost 4 hours, which we got notified over 12 hours prior departure time. Offer different flight options, or maybe switching the airline without an extra fee. Compensation!"
Pros: "Our stewardess was amazing. Took very good care of us. My son was sick and made sure a wheelchair was available for him total take us to transportation. Made our trip. Thank you!!"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Sat in Plus. Horrible service. No hot towels. Had to ask for 2nd drink and was refused a coffee and Baileys with at least an hour left in flight. No snacks offered or served. The attendant spent most of her flight hiding in her seat and reading a novel. Brutal!"
Cons: "Two of the most important things to me in travelling by air are getting through security as quick it’s possible ie the priory line; and a lounge. Traveling and paying for Plus provides neither. Back to Air Canada Business Class or AC Rouge Premium. Going to have to pick up your game WestJet"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "very organized crew. everything ran soothly and on time. crew was polite to parents with children on board"
Cons: "how quick it was over!"
Pros: "Great service and friendly employees!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and courteous. The trips were on schedule."
Cons: "The food selection was poor and they were out of my first choice from that limited selection. Also, it seemed pricey for what it was. I was disappointed to find no crossword or sudoku puzzles in their magazine."
Pros: "We left Calgary just as the snow started. What great timing! The flight was smooth, the service and food were excellent. We always have a good trip with WestJet, especially thanks to all the great staff on the ground and on-board."
Cons: "2 hours late !!!!"
Pros: "Service on plane. Attendants were delightful."
Cons: "Sat on the runway and it smelled of exhaust, which made me nauseous."
Cons: "There wasn't any food to purchase other than a few snacks. That's just not good enough for a 6 hour flight, Really poor."
Pros: "The flight was on time both boarding and landing. My checked baggage was there when we arrived at the baggage spot. This was the best part."
Pros: "Yes we got home on time ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and friendly. Enjoyed their jobs. Seats very comfortable didn't arrive stiff and sore."
Cons: "No headsets Ran out of several of the food items -- I was in row 10 and they served from the front.... A bit disorganized boarding process but it was Mexico ... Comfort? The seats are way too crowded, and the guy in front of me put his seat all the way back so it was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It took several hours for the decision to be made to cancel our original flight from PV to Van, and when the final decision was made, the complete lack of sympathy or communication came as a shock. No one informed us why we were moving to another terminal or that our flight had actually been cancelled and we would be staying another night in Mexico for another two hours. Getting our hotel voucher and transportation to the venue took another several hours. (Sorry Westin, but you also receive poor marks on your food services. Your front desk people were great though!) The following morning we were not informed that there would be no food service on the flight, so my kids were starving by the time we touched down in Vancouver. The ordeal was exhausting and when we finally arrived in Vancouver we almost missed our connecting flight because of a huge error in off-loading our luggage. It shouldn’t take over an hour to receive your luggage. Again, the communications break down led to hightened anxiety and stress. The whole horrible journey home with WestJet made the loveliness of my actual holiday pale into the background. I was very disappointed in WestJet as I’ve had fabulous experiences in the past. If possible, I will avoid flying with them again any time soon."
Cons: "No movies available"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Internet was poor, my movie kept stopping and restarting."
Pros: "Best airline for friendly caring staff. Favorite carrier."
Cons: "The contracted ground crew at the desk in Puerto Vallarta were not very organized. Checking in took longer than it should have."
Pros: "$200 WestJet dollar compensation"
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours to leave. Not checking for delays before boarding. 12 month expiry on WestJet dollars."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Having only one bathroom at back of the plane was a surprise ."
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Cons: "Friendly. And a nice quick/smooth flight."
Pros: "What more do want? Loved the West Jet app Option for in-flight entertainment. Became a West Jet member and have applied for the West Jet credit card....What more can I say? Are there any job openings in Puerta Vallarta?"
Cons: "I didn't care, but my travel companion was not impressed when they ran out of cookies."
Pros: "The plans wasn’t chock-a-block full making it more comfortable for all of us"
Cons: "The customs process at Abbotsford International Airport was ridiculously slow with only 2 boarder guards & several others seemingly standing around"
Pros: "Good crew! Do you call food to a cookie and a coffee? Zero entertainment unless you are carrying your own. At my age is almost next to impossible to be carrying those devices, too heavy!"
Cons: "Walking to the end to find the gate # marked on the ticket, just to find out when I got there that it was the wrong gate, it had been changed. Its hard to hear the announcements in that airport , its a very noisy one. First time in more than 8 years had to pay for 1 suitcase I had"
Pros: "Friendly Staff Flight delayed departing but pilot made up the time ."
Pros: "Staff are always fun and efficient, but the drinks came very late. In Asia, even if the flight is only 1 hour, they have the time to serve a lunch and clean up....."
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."
Cons: "suitcase was busted up on the bottom totally missing 1 wheel"
Pros: "We had to walk a long long way. I have a cane. No assistance offered. International flights with connector had to collect luggage. And clear customs then go through security again. It was more like third world service."
Pros: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "Staff, professionalism, variety of movies"
Cons: "Small seats, little recline. No blankets or pillows available except for purchase. Must have a phone or tablet to watch movies unless you pay to rent one - smaller screens and more awkward to watch comfortably. Only snacks provided but no actual meal as part of your ticket. Seems alot of amenities cut back to save money"
Pros: "Cabin crew was good,"
Cons: "The seats where not compfie"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Pros: "Very professional and dilligent staff helping th elderly with utmost care. the flight was clock work on time and well aided by the cabin crew. Overall aces high !!! Keep it flying"
Pros: "This was my first time flying Plus and I don't think I can ever go back. Worth every penny."
