Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "It was ok"

Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "Good Entertainment"
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the process was standard"
Cons: "For some reason both my friends and I felt it was a very uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Leg room, crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "The stewardess was very unprofessional and being racist"
Pros: "It was non stop"
Cons: "The plane was freezing and when I asked the attendant for a blanket she said they were all out"
Pros: "Always is on time"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Plane too full. Again, without the individual screens, you didn't have a choice on what to watch on a very very long flight"
Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was flawless. Pleasant staff & comfortable seats... LOVED the free movies, audio selection, food, beverages, etc."
Cons: "1. would not allow duty-free purchases with under 60 minute boarding time. 2. required TSA check & disposal of all beverages before entering the area to wait for the plane - a 30 minute wait in the hallway!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, made up for lost time"
Cons: "Very unpleasant experience with crew generally. Very surprising, given previous experiences with Copa."
Pros: "Made the trip feel easier with their kindness."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the in flight movie through the headphones but not a big deal. Still had fun."
Pros: "The staff are very friendly"
Cons: "Be late to my next connection"
Pros: "The flight attendants were good to everyone and the plane was either new or very close to it"
Pros: "Great overall experience. Hassle free."
Cons: "Lo últimos grupos deberían pasar primero."
Pros: "In Panama the team leaves much to be desired, no coordination, doesn't seem to have a leader therefore everyone seem unprofessional, each time I have to go thru this experience is the same, will be looking forward to the day it will be taken care of."
Pros: "Nice crew and we left on time"
Cons: "No legroom whatsoever nice crew and we left on time"
Pros: "On time, clean, and non stop, the latter being the best! First flight was a newer plane, and appreciate the USB ports. Older plane on return flight, but got home safe and sound with a little extra time to spare. That's a good trip in my book."
Cons: "Nothing negative."
Pros: "Excellent service and room to stretch"
Cons: "We were late due to waiting for a crew member to arrive"
Cons: "No individual screen and no USB chargers. No snack or coffe before landing in an 5 and a half flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Copa has a reputation for being the on-time airline in Central America, and so it was for all 5 of my flights with them this trip. Customer service on the phone was really great, too. They got things done, and done the first time."
Cons: "The in-flight TV screens are old-school and not very good."
Pros: "I understand that international flights to the USA have extra security, but this was a joke. Anyone with a little motivation could defeat this “security.” I had an Emergency Exit seat. Nobody told me they didn’t recline. I’d rather have a normal row and be able to recline."
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class. Awesome experience"
Cons: "We were forced to go through security again to access the gate and that included throwing away all liquids without access to a water fountain to refill. Completely unreasonable to make people board a 5+ hour flight without water."
Pros: "Tv's and that there were 2 open seats next to me."
Cons: "Food is atrocious."
Cons: "Flight was late. They didn't have personal tvs and the headphone jack is didn't work for it anyway. Food was horrible. Took wayyy too long to get baggage."
Pros: "Food decent. Alcoholic drinks included. Good service."
Cons: "No TVs on headrests. Sometimes not even a movie on a 5h flight??"
Pros: "Great staff and quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Went by quick, great staff"
Cons: "I asked for the temp to be adjusted, but wasn't able to get them to fix much. It was easily 80 degrees."
Pros: "The food was pretty good."
Cons: "After boarding the plane, we sat on the runway for like 30 minutes waiting to take off. Nothing was said and no explanation was given as to why we had to wait 30 minutes to take off."
Pros: "I bought a return ticket from Panama City to Rio on Kayak and was not notified that a Yellow Fever shot was necessary for re-entry to Panama. Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly. My flights were on time. Check in was easy."
Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "To board the plane in Panama City passengers had to go through a second security screening and were therefore unable to bring bottled beverages onto the plane. Once through this second security there was no where to purchase water. The free never came through the plane to offer more beverages after the meal service. Many passengers got up and corralled at the back of the plane to get water. I watched a flight attendant drink from one the large bottles herself and then presumably serve to a customer."
Pros: "This announcement by the pilot at the beginning of the flight turned out to be incorrect. Despite the fact that I did online check-in at least 23 hours in advance, I was seated way at the rear of the jet. As a single woman who looks unusual because half of my hair is shorter due to recent surgery; I sincerely hope I was not seated at the back due to my appearance. The other passenger seated with me was a very kind developmentally disabled young man. The placement in row 33 +/- only emphasized the many instances of turbulence on the flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The many occasions of turbulence on this flight."
Pros: "All it is fine"
Cons: "Too much complain whit my carry on"
Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"
Cons: "Only the spaghetti was edible and the salad only had 2 ingredients. Also would appreciate changing up the entertainment options from leaving my destination to going to it."
Cons: "My complaint is with the Panama TSA!! Why do you have 2nd security check at the gate before boarding? They were rude, didn't speak English (or played like they didn't) and their just throwing your possessions around in front of everyone!! Just stupid!!"
Pros: "Flight crew were polite and good. Flight was relatively good with excellent entertainment."
Cons: "Despite early check-in, +3hours, and we checked in together; my wife and I were assigned seats that were not together. The boarding staff didn’t even mention that fact or explain why the sitting arrangement was so. It looked like she was just trying to sneak it through. I understand that many people might have pre-selected their seats online and her choices were limited, but a notification would have been nice."
Pros: "Loved the check in. No baggage expense. Up to two bags FREE! Then, we had a meal --that was included in the fare. The crew was pleasant and accommodating. Everyone was pleasant. To pass the time on the 5 1/2 hour flight, there were options for movies, TV, games and etc. Overall, it was a pleasant flight. When I book my next trip, I'm going to see if Copa goes there. If so, that's my first choice."
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"
Cons: "The crew, and the plane is very old not fit, for a such,long flight"
Pros: "Comfortable leg room Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"
Cons: "Always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef."
Cons: "Need to add inseat entertainment for all flights."
Pros: "Meal was OK"
Cons: "Boarding announcement only in Spanish and without PA. Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Cons: "I had to go through another check point (inside the airport,for abconnecting flight) made me throw away a sealed bottle of Gatorade that I purchased inside the airport 5 minutes earlier for 5 dollars. That is ridiculous!!"
Cons: "Would not let us board with 25 minutes prior to departure Because they lock their doors 35 minutes prior"
Cons: "The flight was delayed at the last minute"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
Cons: "They got our bag out of the plane and then lost it, had no earphones whatsoever."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"
Cons: "El espacio entre asientos es muy reducido. Las rodillas pegan contra el asiento de en frente. Muy incómodo y genera impacto en la espalda."
Cons: "As it was a short flight it was ok but their system of checking in/ baggage drop off is really poor and disorganised. Everyone was queuing together for baggage drop, checking... it was a mess and took ages. It’s unfair on those who have already checked in online because you were ended up queuing with everyone else."
Pros: "Very smooth, great staff."
Cons: "Water available in waiting area."
Pros: "it was ok flight, but on time, very important to me"
Cons: "the food... cream cracker and very sweet cake..."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough!!"
Pros: "There was a blonde flight attendant who was extremely attractive which distracted from how hot the plane was during boarding and prior to take off since the air was not on."
Cons: "Turn the air on before you start boarding the flight."
Cons: "After getting off the shuttle to board the plane via stairs, men at the bottom and top of the stairs both stopped everyone and refused anyone to board. We were stuck on the tarmac for around 2-3 minutes. No entertainment options during the flight. No free food. Only water."
Cons: "Snack . Don’t have 0 snack in the plane"
Cons: "Better aircraft and personnel should smile and be more friendly"
Pros: "The crew wonderful"
Cons: "Venden asientos pero sus sistema de la aplicación es pésimo no me dejaba cargar el pago. Para el embarque de miami a lima no había buen orden"
Cons: "Flying on schedule"
Pros: "I fly for a living sand I’m on airlines all over the world. This little flight was of the worst I have ever been on and I’ll never fly Latam again"
Cons: "From the time my ticket was scanned it to 37 mins to board the plan... standing still in line. Caos! A message announces at any time we a happy to serve you water I got up and asked for water and was told wait until the cart comes by my seat. The seats are VERY CLOSE together and my row 22"
Cons: "more seat space and padding, no charge for soft drinks"
Pros: "Good movie selections, nice crew"
Cons: "They need to be able to let customers know meal ingredients during pre-orders to assist with food allergy. I have a tomato allergy, so giving me an option of "Vegan" or "veggie" with no other detail is unhelpful."
Pros: "I purchased tickets but there weren't any actual seats available for us on this plane so we got bumped to a later flight (8 hrs later). Our baggage was also delayed getting to us."
Pros: "Amazing crew, very comfortable seat, delicious food."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Ground staff were polite and helpful."

Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Cons: "The pilot arrived 1.5 hours late and my bag was out on another flight, further delaying me. Terrible."
Cons: "El vuelo salió a tiempo y en los horarios exactos lo que. o me gusto que me dañaron un bolso y me lo hicieron huecos"
Pros: "Wine and whisky"
Pros: "Excelente disposicion y manejo de situaciones de la tripulación. El vuelo fue excelente"
Cons: "El despegue se atrasó unos 20 minutos, no funcionaba el centro de entretenimiento (que fue anunciado) y pese a que eran las 6.3 am no nos convidaton ni una galletita"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! Competent and very helpful, even funny when serving food and drinks! I fly very frequently but this was one of the nicest crews I had in years!"
Pros: "The flight itself was great because there were personal TVs for everyone that had a wide selection of movies and games. It had more categories on it but little time to explore in the short plane ride after the movie from BWI to MIA. Great pilot, little motion sickness and great staff."
Cons: "I did not like how I came with my family and the clerks did not even try to seat us together, just gave us our tickets and sent us on our way, even after mentioning we had under age kids with us and a 2 year old who WILL CRY if not seated next to my other 2 family members."

Pros: "Staff on LATAM is among the best in my life."
Cons: "Long boarding times. It's ok though, nota deal breaker by any means. Food is delicious for airplane food."
Cons: "Para abordar tuvimos que caminar hasta la salida en la puerta 30 y después esperar en el bus más de veinte minutos, pesima organización de subir los pasajeros para que esperen tanto tiempo en el bus con un calor sofocante Mi asiento era el 1B y no tenia la mesita para la bandeja"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"
Pros: "The service onboard is really excelent. No complaints at all."
Cons: "The online and telephone system is the worst. They never are able to confirm your seats or preferent seats . You can not use an american credit card if you are in south america. They give you a confirmation number to pay your flight ticket in "Plaza Vea" (Peru) and when you get there they told me that at only in a few "plaza veas" you can pay your ticket. I had to spend like 100 soles (30 dollars) to pay my upgrade seat. There is more Horrible experience to tell about it . Avoid LATAM"
Pros: "Avión silencioso"
Cons: "45 minutos de espera en tierra al aterrizar"
Pros: "Crew Attention"

Cons: "That it didn't move too much."
Pros: "Good service from the crew."

Pros: "I eventually was let off the plane"
Cons: "No entertainment, food was saltine crackers, staff made us put down the blinds so we couldn't even look out the window. Will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."
Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."
Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Lots on in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing, I pretty much just slept the whole time."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Four and a half hours on board and just a cookie? Really!?"
Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"
Cons: "I got to Moscow, SVO. I didn't receive my bag. This sucks."
Pros: "The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words."
Cons: "As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight."
Pros: "the crew went out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible very nice"
Cons: "No wifi, no personal TVs"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The connection in Chicago was 3 HOURS late with several gate changes. People on the desk were rude and never explained what was wrong. They didn't even announce the gate. change. I got it from Kayak."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Pros: "The flight was a one way to PDX and felt fast and not exhausting coming from LHR. First time flying direct. Great food and snacks the staff took care of us. Bathrooms were cleaned over the trip which was great!"
Cons: "N/A - nothing..."
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Pros: "I loved the Movies that I could watch, Charger plug ins as well as the service. No extra hassel."
Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."
Pros: "we have a very old plane from rome to chicago no entertainent"
Cons: "it was a 10 hours fly in a old plane without any charger for computers and tablets,no individual tvs"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Cons: "We paid extra for 'exit row' seats and were sat in sets that had maybe even less room than a standard row! I was extremely disappointed, and even the flight attendant said he had flagged this with his management and they continue to sell those seats as exit row and charge a premium. Very poor business practice on BA's end and will absolutely avoid flying with them in the future."
Pros: "Customer service at American Airlines was amazingly good. They figured out the mess that the third party agent, WEBJET.COM made and fixed it."
Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."
Pros: "An old aircraft but well maintained. Crew was courteous and efficient. No food or entertainment"
Cons: "Delay in receipt of baggage at Chicago"
Cons: "Okay, but flight was delayed."
Pros: "Options for entertainment. Seats felt larger. Plenty of storage space for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Overall, I'm pleased with BA."
Cons: "This flight didn't have the individual TV screens."
Pros: "Air Berlin has very nice jets"
Cons: "The connection time was much to short, 40 minutes connection. I was in the back end of a 777 with a lap child. My stroller that was gate checked came back with a missing wheel on just"
Cons: "My flight was scheduled for 5.37pm, but came to the airport thinking that I could get an earlier flight to Chicago and I was there at 1pm, requested for standby status, did not get it because am not platinum of diamond member, asked for $75.00, of course I didn't want to pay and stayed in the airport thinking that my flight would be on time, but it was delayed and delayed and took off at last, saw O'Hare airport but it looks like the pilot could not land it because he did not get the clearance, but as a passenger, I saw the flight going around and around the Ohare area, at least 6 times, then after landing taxing took for ever. I WILL TRY NOT TO FLY IN AA AGAIN."
Pros: "delayed at both sides with very little announcements keeping us updated"
Cons: "That it got cancelled"
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Cons: "This was the worst flight ever. AA is the worst airlines ever."
Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "American Airlines must change the way they service."
Pros: "It's a good flight but the crew in Mexico City is really bad"
Cons: "Good flight experience, but the front desk in Mexico they are really mean. I request to talk with the manager to give me solutions but the manager was the worst. The manager show lack of experience and he was unable to give me solutions. He give me more problems than good news."
Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"
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: "I enjoyed the crew, the food and the entertainment. The crew did give us peanuts for our extra 5 hours on the plane."
Cons: "We were 3 hours late for departure and took 2 extra hours in the air because of re-routing. The seats were abnormally stiff and went back so little that it was extremely hard to fall asleep during the 18 hours we were on board. The crew was unwillng to let us bring our instruments on board and thus, they cracked from the air pressure during the flight."
Pros: "Service flight on time food"
Cons: "No movies for 7 hour flight"
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "Flight delayed initially due to weather. When weather cleared flight delayed half hour because they could not find the pilot."
Pros: "Departure was orderly and staff interactions good"
Pros: "Boarding was good, but pretty bad flights overall. One of the worst I ever had in my life! The plane seats we had had so little cushion that is was painful to sit. My husband was avoiding touching the back by leaning on his arms and he is great shape, don't think elderly and in pain by himself...Entertainment simply non-existent and food as well... The crew were borderline okay. Plus the plane drove for about 20 minutes at Montreal and about 20 in Chicago before we left and after we landed...Let's say I saw parts of O'Hare in Chicago, I didn't even know existed!!!"

Cons: "no entertainment and poor seat selection"
Pros: "Love the individual entertainment & the friendly staff team"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and smiling."
Pros: "$800 reimbursement 1st class"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight by 2 passengers."
Pros: "service on the plane was good and the crew was very nice to be patient while we boarded the plane with 3 little kids"
Cons: "I arrived at the gate and looked at my ticket to see "GTE" where the seat number usually is. I was informed upon arriving at the desk at the gate that that meant Air Canada has also decided to participate in the ridiculous practice of overbooking their flights and that even though I purchased my ticket roughly 8 weeks prior, there was a chance I might miss my flight to my friend's WEDDING. The lady who was working the desk was as unhelpful and dismissive as you could possibly imagine, refusing to look at me and giving me attitude for merely waiting in the area to see if anyone had missed the flight so I could get on. It was surreal; the only way I could describe her incomprehensible behavior would be to say it was as if her boss were right in front of her and she was trying her damnedest to get fired. It was one of those situations where you could tell this miserable, miserable person was enjoying the power trip she was on and doing everything in her power to make me feel helpless and angry. I made my flight, miraculously, but it was the worst customer service experience I have ever had in my life, airport or not."
Pros: "Professional fight attendants, very nice."
Cons: "The flight took off late but most of the lost time was made up during the flight time."
Pros: "Again, ground crew took good care of me and saw me to the baggage pick-up. You have lovely staff."
Pros: "I paid a nominal fee to get an exit row. I have a perpetually sore hip and I had a pain-free flight."
Cons: "First flight was canceled, they did not get me on a flight till 4 pm the next day! Not to mention the two French Canadians I talked to were extremely rude. Finally the 3rd customer service women tried to get me home sooner but was unable to!! Have flown for years on air Canada without issues but this last trip was such an inconvenience I will not being flying with them agin!! They also did not cover my hotel or the taxi costs associated with me having my flight canceled, not even a discount!!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was late so I missed my connection. Then my luggage was delayed by five hours behind me. Generally poor service."
Pros: "The entertainment offerings were good. One crew member in particular helped us get back on the flight after we had been booted."
Cons: "Gate agent for Air Canada completely unhelpful about getting us to our connecting flight. Then the Toronto Airport was just HORRIBLE: all along the way, we had to go through security again to get to the American side, and there was no warning that the drinks we had bought *at the Dublin airport* would all be thrown out. Rude security employees. They also very slowly went through the duty free bottles of whisky I bought *at the Dublin airport*. Then there was this stupid line of kiosks that no one knew how to use, then for some reason another boarding check, then another, and then finally customs, with more rude staff members. We had NO IDEA any of this was coming, and got no warning from Air Canada. Then we rushed to our connecting flight, only to find out that we had been booted from the flight anyway. (I got an email about it, which of course I didn't check because I have limited data -- not everyone is made of money who can afford unlimited data!) Then we got on finally boarded, only to sit on the tarmac forever in uncomfortable seats when they could've just let us sit in the airport. Ugh."
Pros: "The flight last less time than expected."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Flight was good but there was no tv"
Cons: "There was no TV or to play games"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The crew was fabulous and the flight smooth."
Cons: "Not a single complaint from me!"
Cons: "The fact that my ticket said something different from my itinerary and I spent far too long at the counter to get a seat assignment."
Cons: "Flight delayed, service with discrimination, pride, specially male crew, this is a really bad flight experience."
Cons: "It was so late, I almost missed my connecting flight. They were not helpful. They did not communicate well and they refused to take any responsibility."
Cons: "Very bad cabin pressure -- lots of ear pain."
Pros: "Again, nice selection of entertainment and great crew."
Cons: "There was some dripping from the ceiling on those of us in the back of the plane. It might have been condensation from the air conditioning or air flow nozzles. In the groove of the ceiling immediately over the seats there seemed to be some dirt or mold."
Pros: "Not much can go wrong on a flight shorter than 90 minutes."
Cons: "3 delays that added up to 1 hr, but counter personnel kept us informed."
Pros: "I . was impressed with the food and service.over all the whole trip was very good"
Cons: "there was nothing I did not like"
Cons: "Moving through security and customs in the Toronto airport was incredibly slow, with 4 or 5 checkpoints, all with lines. Staff were polite but there were not enough of them. We almost missed our connecting flight, and our bags apparently did miss it, because they have not yet arrived in Chicago (see previous comments). Air Canada should have seen the problem in terms of timing with the connecting flight and expedited better. Will try to avoid Air Canada in the future, especially if there are connections in Toronto."
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Cons: "if you get in a que, then the computer goes down , your dead, AC line will be 1.5 hours to get to rebook. then you have 2 day to stay before you can get out. if you decide to go on delta because staying 2 day in hotel is more expensive than buying a new ticket ac will not refund you. Air Canada is the least flexible airline in the world relative to refund."
Pros: "Tv in all seats, individual air controls, the crew was nice and I offered up my bag to go on the checked bags when asked and it was the first one out on the bagged claim"
Cons: "I'm 5'8 and my legs hardly fit when sitting straight in the seat"
Pros: "was forced to spend the night in Toronto because Air Canada didn't seem to know that there would be a huge crowd at the airport that evening. I was told as I exited my flight that I would not make the connecting flight and I had to spend the night in Toronto. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "The crew members in both the flights were amazing. they seemed like they enjoyed their job. Its not very common at Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Toronto was delayed by half hour. But the boarding gate agents did not even mention the delay."
Cons: "after wetting half hour in the line they said i didn't pay for my ticket and tell me to parches a new ticket"
Pros: "It was comfy. Individual screen."
Cons: "We took off 25 minutes late and no food was served, not even a snack. I had to pay 25$ to check in my suitcase."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "Run by united but more efficient than a recent Air Canada flight."
Cons: "3 hour flight and had to pay extra for entertainment. Only two biscuits given for food. Cramped seats for anyone 6ft tall."
Cons: "I could not check in online for both legs of the flight. Stuck in the middle seat even though I was ready to check in 24 hrs prior."
Pros: "Overall it was good. The crew was very friendly. The plane was small and it was a short flight, so everything else was average as expected for a short flight."
Pros: "The crew was good and the in-flight entertainment options were decent."
Cons: "Plane took forever to take off because we were waiting for people late from layovers. Got one drink, no snacks, nothing else. Plane arrived over an hour late."
Cons: "It was a United flight and everywhere it said it was Air Canada instead of United. Hopping terminals and running through them last minute is not fun. To top it off the flight got delayed a ton of times and messed up our schedules completely."
Cons: "delayed 2-3 hours in Vancouver so missed connection, had to rent a vehicle to get home. Everytime, United into O'Hare… never again!"
Pros: "Cancellation came with a new flight and coucher for sleeping overnight at a O'Hare Hotel which was very well organized and went smoothly. Staff at ORD were waiting for us and very helpful."
Cons: "Was unable to check in my Air Canada flight the day before to find out the next day, at the airport that the flight was cancelled. The Air Canada flight was operated by United and no such information was provided in my reservation on Kayak or at the Air Canada counter in SAN airport, so I had to guess that another Star Alliance member would be taking over."
Cons: "Gate was changed after check-in, but lack of announcements nearly caused my 84 year old mother to miss her flight, which was changed from gate 80 to 62."
Pros: "The in flight movies were the only thing that made the flight bearable."
Cons: "Where should I start? Upon boarding, the flight crew took an extra half hour trying to accommodate the request of a group of families to sit with each other. This consisted of moving 15-20 people around the plane, all of which were completely unprepared and had luggage all over the place. When they finally got everyone seated, we were able to depart 30+ minutes late. Only then did I realize that the movements they made placed within 4 seats of my location, 3 infants, and one toddler. For the duration of the 12 hour red eye flight, I had to listen to 4 children screaming and crying in succession. Non. Stop. This was hands down the worst flight I have been on in my life, and I take 20+ flights a year. Multiple passengers requested to be moved, some were accommodated. I was not. I received absolutely no sleep, and had numerous discussions with the flight attendants, but was told nothing could be done. My second Air Canada flight was only slightly better, as I was one row away from one infant, rather than 4. Judging from my first Air Canada experience, I can comfortably say that I will not be flying with them again, as I will continue to book with airlines with more respect for passengers as a whole."
Pros: "Great first experience flying."
