We only had 1hr connecting in Ft Lauderdale. Kayak should not have allowed this short a connection time, as FLL requires a change of terminal (exit the airport and get on a bus), so we missed our connecting flight home to San Diego.

Pros: "There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again."

While boarding the representative was so stressed she blew air in our faces and took the boarding passes so agresivally we were shocked! On board the flight attended did not speck English or at least didnt want to, so other passenger had to explain us what she was saying. Very very unprofessional, we will never use azul again in the future."

Pros: "Everything was fine except the flight was delayed an hour. No biggie. My only question is that I had a trip that passed through Isa to 3rd country. At check in I was informed that bags would go all the way through without re-checking in. Turns out bags had to be re-checked in at first entry to usa. I wish the rules were consistent and that all personnel knew the rules. Also united baggage track app does not work."
Cons: "United baggage app does not work Personnel did not know baggage rules at Chck in."
Pros: "Nothing!"

All of Azul’s staff are incompetent laZy workers!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that I lost my flight because website vayama changed my flight itinerary and didn't airlines know"
Cons: "There was no communication by Avianca staff & crew regarding the flight delay. I had a 10:49pm flight from BOG to JFK. Apparently the flight was delayed until 2:00am. I did not get an email or text alert relating to the delay. When I checked in at 9:00pm, the counter agent did not alert me to the change in departure time. It wasn't until I looked at the Departure board in the Avianca lounge did I know of the 3+ hr. delay. When we finally boarded, at least the captain was kind enough to explain the reason for the delay - Avianca needed to change aircrafts, then the originally slated captain called in sick and his replacement had to wait out the required time off as he had just completed a long haul flight from Canada to Colombia. Great job running a company Avianca..."
Pros: "Leg space is great in avianca, the food is very good and awesome customer service. Hope this company never change their way to service Customers. Thank you Avianca"
Cons: "Airline connecting flight from rio to Lima to miami. First flight was delayed, the four of us missed our second flight. Then we had to go to bogota from Lima and run to make it to our last flight. All of this made us miss work and sleep, 26 in airports and airplanes. The worst experience. Rude staff on top of it all"
Cons: "Called the flight attendant several times and never came. Several people got a sandwich at the end of the flight but not everyone"
Pros: "The crew was kind and helped with getting bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The announcements were all in Spanish and it made it difficult for me to understand what I needed to do. I acknowledge that I was one of a very few passengers who spoke only English, so this was not a problem for many people. The leg room on the flight was incredibly cramped."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable with a fresh package of pillow/blanket and earphones waiting for us. A free meal, and snack. The take-off and landing were timely."
Cons: "The bathroom was the worst I have ever seen. Old urine splattered on the seat (it had to have been left uncleaned from an earlier flight). There was no soap, The floor as still wet from urine and tp was still there. I was disguisted. Also there were only one bathroom in the back of the plane, which must have been a way to get more available seats. If other airplanes take that tactic, I'll stop flying altogether."
Pros: "Nothing special airline"
Cons: "Poor quality for the price old plane"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The food is just okay but at least they don’t make you pay for it"
Pros: "I enjoy Avianca unless I am flying out of bogota... friendly staff and economical."
Cons: "At many airports such as bogota there is always a REDICULOUS wait! Even if you pre checked in, you must wait 2 hours in a crazy line just to drop your luggage. 2 hours!! I have flown through bogota 10 times and the line is always over an hour long. This is insanity! I have visited 30 countries and never have experienced a mess like this. I hate flying Avianca out of bogota and will pick other airlines because of the crazy lines. I will fly into Latin America using Avianca but I will always use a separate airline to leave because of the mess."
Pros: "Great airplanes."
Cons: "2 hrs to drop one bag and 1 hr and 18 min delay. Poor coordination with the staff."
Cons: "I am really upset because I never received my luggage and was told that I would have to get it delivered to my house. I didn't appreciate the fact that I wasn't told about my luggage not getting in the plane until I landed and went to claim my luggage."

Pros: "The flight over to Bogota from NYC was perfect. No complaints. I was raving about it."
Cons: "We sat on the runway and then returned to the gate, resulting in a 2 hour delay, due to a faulty smoke detector in the bathroom. There was a lack of communication about status. At one point, they shut the air. Several times they shut off and restarted the entertainment system. It would have helped if they went through the cabin with water or a snack. It was a long wait and we had no idea why..."
Pros: "Flight went smooth, crew was attentive"
Cons: "The seat's headphone jack was broken and it was difficult to recline. My seat numbers were changed on one flight and to other in the second part... Not expected"
Pros: "I arrived at my destination with everything."
Cons: "1. I accepted a voucher in exchange for getting bumped from an overbooked flight. I gave it to my friend. It's very difficult to use. I won't do it again unless it's for a lot of money, or cash. 2. My screen didn't work on the plane."

Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."

Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Pros: "The people were all really nice and helpful and fun. Food was great. Watched a fun movie."

Pros: "Great movies...."
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"

Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."

Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "The organization and speediness shown during boarding the aircraft and the perfect timing on departure"
Cons: "The tv screen corresponding to my seat 9A was not working so could not see any movies nor information during the whole flight SDQ to JFK. The condition was reported twice to the flight attendance but was not able to correct it even after resetting the TV settings twice"
Pros: "Service, seats, food and pilot were all good."
Cons: "There ought to be a better way to go from an international flight to a connecting domestic flight. Security and Customs should be combined to expedite the process for passengers and crew members. I'm not suggesting not going through security, buy why couldn't we do it at the same place as customs? Too often Delta flights are delayed and I don't understand why Delta wouldn't do everything it could to expedite every part of the process for its crew and passengers. I went through TSA pre-check with Delta crew members. My connecting flight was delayed. We were waiting on the pilot..."
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "They had good entertainment for free. There were movies, tv shows, and games."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 5 hours and the ride was longer than expected."
Pros: "We upgraded our seats to Delta Comfort, at a cost of round $90 per flight. It was well worth it!"
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "Painless"
Cons: "Price of food"
Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "The comfort of first class reclining seats."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals consisted of cold grilled vegetables for an appetizer, lunch was underwhelming. So much so I dont remember it The snack was two salads. Regular snacks were Cuban sandwiches or roast beef sandwich. Even the stewards said Inshould complain to Delta. Pretty sad for what the cost of a first class ticket."
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was amazing comfort was horrible. My seat was un front of emergency exit and could recline, I was traveling with children"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Crew were trying but non of them spoke English"
Cons: "I have never had such a terrible experience like this one"
Pros: "Space between seats, tv on each seat, iPhone charger"
Cons: "Boarding process for Copa 808 from Panama City to JFK on 8/25/2019 was mob-like. Attitude of security personnel was unhelpful/resentful when trying to use Star Alliance Gold Lane (Have Premier Platinum on United). My wife got “selected” for special security screening. Almost missed flight."
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "Premier class services."
Cons: "entertainment and toilet cleanest."
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Luggage pick up"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Comfortable, nice crew"
Cons: "Dirty baths"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room Seats have power to plug in phone and computers to charge New Plane (Boeing 737-800) Food was good. All staff at the gate and on plane was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely use Copa to travel again. On time departure and landing"
Cons: "Could use a little more entertainment selections. Staff at security check before you get to the gate were not really helpful and did not seem interested in helping out at all."
Pros: "The flight attendants where and are amazing.. the service was the best. Highly recommend to fly with “copa”"
Cons: "I don’t think I did not like anything to be honest."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was friendly."
Cons: "Having to screen my carry-on luggage twice, at airport entrance and gate entrance, was a shocker."
Pros: "Tve food os good"
Cons: "The fly EXCELENT"
Pros: "Convenient times."
Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June with a window seat. When I got to Copa check in they told me I didn’t have an assigned seat (and I got there very early) and that she couldn’t help me get a seat assignment until I got to the gate. Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."
Pros: "Flight left promptly on time. Crew was attentive and pleasant. Its great to be fed on the flight and not have to pay for luggage. Food was very tasty!!!"
Pros: "The food and the first class seating"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "Served great airline food, and the staff is very friendly. Free alcohol is also available."
Cons: ". When we arrived in Panama we were forced to do security again at our gate which meant we had to throw away the 4 dollar bottle of water we had just purchased only to be stuck in an area with no bathrooms until our flight."
Pros: "I liked everything. Excellent service, friendly crew, very good food, well informed, been travelled with Copa Airlines for a few years now n will continue with them on the future. Great job guys. Thanks"
Pros: "I had a seat in the exit row with plenty of legroom flight attendants were pleasant"

Cons: "Limited movie choices Limited legroom (like many airlines in cattle class) No chess in games"
Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."

Pros: "Nice and smooth Took off late but got there on time Pilot was pushing baby YEAH!!"
Cons: "If you fall asleep you will miss your meal and go hungry."
Pros: "The service is always very friendly on Copa. The boarding is timely. So is the off boarding. The pilots fly very well. Great landings and takeoffs."
Cons: "It was one of the most uncomfortable flights I've ever had. I was in seat 10E of a Boeing 737: in front of the exit row and could not recline my seat. The woman to my right was close to 300 lbs and was spilling into my seat. The gentleman next to me kept putting his elbows in my side. The cabin was way too hot -- uncomfortably so -- and the air vents barely pushed out air. The entertainment system on the plane was broken. I couldn't wait to land in NY."
Pros: "this veggie meal had dairy, which makes a big (postive) difference for me the entertainment worked much better. although if it had been working on my first flight, it would not have been enough variety in options for movies"
Cons: "seats were too close together not enough water available"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"
Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."
Pros: "individual set of headphones and screens for entertainment"
Cons: "drinks service"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "One little cookie for snack is nothing. Planes are old. Seats are uncomfortable. The movies app doesn’t work very well and it requires subtitles available for non English speakers"
Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Organization, information and communication"
Cons: "Too tight, no entertaintment"
Cons: "I've flown a lot of different business class flights in my time and these are the narrowest I've ever seen. I am not overweight but I felt very restricted in these seats. Add to the narrow seats is the design of the seat and armrests themselves and you don't have much space at all. No way I was going to be able to work on my laptop in this LATAM business class seat."

Pros: "the flight was quiet"

Cons: "They cancelled my flight, made no effort to get me home and didn’t reimburse me for my hotel when I had to stay in Iquitos."
Pros: "I needed to check a bag at the gate, and the staff were very friendly and patient when I asked them about it. They are all very fluent in both English and Spanish!"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"

Cons: "El snack era un croissant jamón-queso que venía casi congelado, malisimo"

Pros: "Staff and comfort and"
Cons: "Cosco airport sucks"
Cons: "Flight attendants not wiling to help!"
Pros: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
