Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"I have some pictures to prove it , my flight from SP to Fort Lauderdale I could not sleep at all. Not only me but the passenger in front of me . The seat was broken, where you rest your head it was falling apart, I tried to put it back but kept falling. The flight attendant tried once and gave up . I asked to change seats and they did not let me do . I had to fly basically straight all night , I could not rest my head on the seat. Never again with this company"

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."

My wife became quite dehydrated and had to leave and then re-screen in the security checkpoint because she was so dehydrated. We were not informed of this additional security screening prior to arriving at this gate. I wish we were informed ahead of time and/or there was some water provided in the secure gate area."

Cons: "It was delayed and it did not have any entertainment, seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Premier class services."
Cons: "entertainment and toilet cleanest."
Pros: "Amezing service"
Cons: "Great airline. Amazing service."
Cons: "I called in advanced and requested a vegetarian meal. Apparently no one was told l, and they were no vegetarian options available. Also, there was only one movie running in a general tv without any other entertainment options. This should not be allowed on an international flight >5 hours."
Pros: "Very nice crew especially when I got sick. Entertainment was also good."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. There should have been ac, easy access to water and a bathroom once through gate security. Also out of our group of five, three of us were moved up to business class. It was nice that they got that but it would’ve been more fair if the whole group could have also."
Pros: "On time , the crews"

Pros: "Not a crowded flight so we were able to space out"
Cons: "Food was horrible. I found hair in my pasta"
Pros: "Convenient times."
Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Pros: "Nice selection of movies."
Cons: "Everything else was wrong with this flight. It was delayed for almost three hours with no explanation even though passengers were asking about the reasons. All our questions were simply ignored. They gave us coupons for food for ten dollars. Nothing can be bought with that money. And they didn’t have coupons for everyone so had to wait a lot until they brought all the coupons. Boarding was a nightmare. Crew couldn’t care less. A woman refused to seat far from her “kids” (about 9 and 14) and flight attendants didn’t do anything ti stop the woman from blocking the aisle. We were already almost three hours late. Overall the worst experience."
Cons: "3 hour delay turned into four because of incompetent boarding. 15 minutes at gate to dock plane"
Pros: "COPA offers excellent service! Their newer aircrafts have individualized monitors on each head rest for added control of what one wishes to view. Clean and spacious aircraft. Nice crew and bountiful beverage/ meal service. Fair luggage allowance and flight options will keep us coming! Keep it up!"
Cons: "Panamanian TSA has a second checkpoint at each gate. This means you get the general check we are all used to, but at the gate there's a second patdown and x-ray where liquids purchased inside the terminal are discarded or you have to exit the gate area to drink it! People had to give up their sealed, duty free bags and we had to give up our cans of soda we had just purchased. Fuller disclosure- in Spanish and English- should be given to patrons at stores and BEFORE entering the gate to avoid displeasure. We know drug traffickers are slick, but innocent people don't appreciate the inconvenience. My son's blunt tip, plastic, safety scissors were also taken at this airport because of the thin "blade" affixed to the plastic, but it left the USA in his school pencil case without any issues on our way there."
Pros: "-Nice little breakfast meal after takeoff -More legroom than most coach seats -Efficient crew"
Cons: "De-planing could use some improvement. People who do pre- boarding due to disability or who have small children slow down the process of others trying to get off the plane."
Pros: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Cons: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "We had the last seats in the plane, were served the last, and no offer was made to move us to open seats further up. Multiple people stood in the aisle to use the restrooms (6-7) which meant they were in our faces (I thought the US limited how many people can stand in line on a plane post 9/11); people also got up and did not pay attention to seat belt signs throughout the flight and the crew did nothing. The film was the same one shown Southbound, not as listed in magazine. We were late taking off and late landing (the latter beyond the captain's control, don't know about why we were late to take off)."
Pros: "Free alcohol (not just beer and wine) and decent dinner on the flight from BOS to PTY. Flights were on time and my two pieces of checked luggage made it through no problem. Crew seemed friendly."
Cons: "Airplane interior was spotlessly clean, but is a bit of a throwback (cloth seats that seemed kind of small). Don't expect entertainment screens or charging ports, although my connecting flight did have these. Depends on which plane you get, I suppose. I couldn't hear anything the pilot was saying over the loudspeaker. Hopefully they can upgrade their fleet. BTW if you have a choice of doing a really long layover at the Panama airport, don't. Crappy amenities with nothing but overpriced American fast food."
Pros: "Easy connection, easy inspection and punctuality."
Cons: "FOOD!!! Options very limited and preparation very poor."
Cons: "I was quite disappointed once again that I was never informed that in order to have a vegetarian meal it had to be ordered ahead of time and the only meal options both were meat. So I was served a single roll and a salad aka (one slice of cucumber and about 3 fork fulls of lettuce) but hey that's better than getting nothing on the 1st dlight. Also I was given an exit seat and was literally the first person in line that morning to check in but when I boarded I was told I had to move my seat because I didn't speak spanish... So why assign me the seat in the first place. Also flight was delayed about an hour and a half NOT due to weather conditions."
Cons: "Need to eat better TV set"
Pros: "Little screens for movie"
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Need more water supplied.would like more movie choices. Also..warning...after you pass through security in Panama..don't buy water...there is a second security at the gate and they will confiscate the unopened water you just bought next door to the gate.....!"
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: "Service, leg room"
Cons: "Wish there were personal TVs"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Online check in didn't work for selecting seats Was not allowed to carry any water on (even though I had food poisoning) No seat tv screens for entertainment Flight was late by an hour- no mention of this through announcements 6 hour flight- only 1 time did we get service Missing panel in plane and so we saw the insulation and wiring on the wall next to our seats"
Pros: "The entertainment system was the best I’ve seen, with the largest screen and with USB ports and the media content was the latest."
Cons: "The boarding process was very disorganized without clear signage."
Pros: "Service of blankets."
Cons: "Not friendly and organized before the flight."
Pros: "All it is fine"
Cons: "Too much complain whit my carry on"
Pros: "speed of baggage return"
Cons: "cramped seating"
Pros: "Copa es una excelente aerolinea, la atención muy pront, un viaje tranquilo seguro y puntual muy feliz y agradecida con todos ustedes son un buen equipo de trabajo."
Pros: "Staff was nice and friendly and encourage you to take the alcoholic drinks! Meals were ok, but they confused shellfish allergy with gluten allergy. They allowed me to switch meals though."
Cons: "Seating is tight in the main cabin, location of headphone jack (side of hips), quality of headphones given to you (mine broke in the port), no individual tvs in the head rest, no WIFI (just terrible) and the worst was the second security check at the gate in Panama (my friends had to down their water or get rid of it before the flight)."
Cons: "Baggage claim.. Slowest I've seen in years.. Horribly slow add an extra hour to your trip. I usually don't write about this but it had to be said. Very inefficient not sure what happened."
Pros: "Staff was great and very respectful."
Cons: "The unexpected layover was unfortunate, the delay then after that due to equipment malfunction was then more annoying because I was just eager to get home."
Pros: "Got us home on time, safely and relatively cost effective. The crew was very friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seats were small and the flight was crowded and full of crying kids. The airplane was pretty warm which wasn't something I've ever experienced in flight and got quite uncomfortable. At any given time there was a line of 5+ for the bathroom and there was no non-meat meal option so from our 7 am flight through our connecting flight home we had nothing to eat."
Pros: "Beer for husband was free. Blankets provided. Full security check required twice, at main entry and at gate."
Cons: "Slightly scary landing under windy conditions at BOS-- came in fast and braked very hard. Copa pilots are new to Logan runways, which also happen to be under re-construction this year."
Cons: "I did not care for the fact that they set up a checkpoint after I made my connecting flight then made me recheck through security at which point they tried to confiscate our very expensive duty free purchase that was in a sealed duty free bag! Only when I demanded a manager did they stop trying to confiscate it. At which point they made me check my carry on luggage! I find this very suspicious since I also discovered that someone tried to access the inside of my luggage at Panama City on the initial flight! Your crew on the ground and in the terminals in Panama City are running scams! Beware! Very disturbed by this and plan on sharing this on social media as a beware to copa travelers going through or to Panama City! Literally set up check point at ramp to plan confiscating stuff bough in the terminal after already going through security!"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Food was awful, offered "rice or pasta" chose rice without knowing it had red meat and the other had chicken. Meat was hard and horrible to chew, asked for a different tray for my husband and I and we were told "only if there are some left". About 50 min later, the attendant showed up with two trays when they were starting to pick up old trays. Entertainment was ok.. Played lion on small overhead screens After over 1h at passport control, our luggage wasn't there, they sent a few suitcases and told us that was it but then They made us wait like 15 more min for our suitcases... Bad experience"
Pros: "Everyone was awesome great service"
Pros: "The crew is very nice. The flights were on time. Direct flights from Panama to Brasilia- Brazil. There was enough room for carry ons. Free alcooholic drinks."
Cons: "The airport crew spoke Spanish to me, even after seeing my Brazilian passport. I understand Spanish, but their gate and check-in crew should be trained to speak English to avoid confusion with non Spanish speaking passengers. The seats are hard and I never got a pillow. One movie option and long time with nothing playing on tv."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Two bathrooms for 200 people. Front bathroom reserved for 6 1st class passengers?! Boarded and had to de-plan because the captain wasn't ready. Delayed 1.5 hours, then made us go through security check again because their staff didn't secure the gate when we de-planed."
Cons: "No individual media screens for 5+ hour flight. Had individual screens on the flight down. Also, had to go through security again at the gate in Panama city which meant getting rid of water purchased within the terminal and there was no where within the security parameter to buy water."
Pros: "I am loving the fact how the crew are disembarking and embarking passengers. So far better than many big companies out there in North America"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "They should be on time but we left 30 minutes later."
Cons: "Would not let us board with 25 minutes prior to departure Because they lock their doors 35 minutes prior"
Cons: "They don't come around with drinks very often on LATAM. We bought our startup supply at the airport. First drink round was two hours into the flight."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
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: "This non-stop flight was wonderful. The aircraft is comfortable, the whole flight was smoothly, even though it's fifteen hours flight."
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Almost all seats on planes are tightly crammed together."
Cons: "More options of TV shows to watch."
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."
Cons: "Get a plane that actually works."
Pros: "Efficient processes"
Cons: "More diverse snacks"
Pros: "Nothing. It was a short flight with nothing special to mention."
Cons: "The flight actually leaving on time and not half an hour late."
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"
Cons: "Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on"
Cons: "Flight attendants rude and lack of cleaning in the toilets."
Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "check in and boarding (mostly because it was empty). Flight attendants. timely flight"
Cons: "premium seats should be more comfortable as advertised. On line services (extremely poorly designed and disfunctional website)"
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, and movie system did not work"
Pros: "The seats were typical airliner seats - good enough but more leg room would be nice. Our flights ran on time, and the crew was excellent. Our experience at the Lima Airport was much improved from our first stop there."
Cons: "The stewards were rude and they overbooked the flight. These arrived at the gate at 6:15 and were told we could not board our plane which was to take off at 7:30. Absolute nonsense."
Pros: "I missed my flight, latam's computer was down, I stayed at the airport for 16 hours with them telling me I can't refund, I can't reschedule, pretty much they took my money and left me stuck in Houston. I waited for this day for 6 months, I sold my car, just for this trip. never flying latam"
Cons: "customer service is the worst I've ever seen in my life.. worse then any other place I've gone, they will not even try to look into your situation, they took my boarding pass and left me stuck in Houston. $1,000 put into their pocket with no service rendered. I hate my life"
Cons: "It would have been nice to know we had to pay for checked luggage. It showed that we were each allowed 1 piece checked luggage."
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized."
Pros: "Perfect flight arrived 20 min early !!"
Cons: "None all great"
Pros: "Smooth flight good staff"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"
Cons: "DONT BUY YOUR TICKET WITH FLIGHT NETWORK !!!!! I HAD A PROBLEM AND LOST ALL MY MONEY !! ALL THE TICKETS (5 PERSONS) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"
Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."
Pros: "our flight back home went smoothly"
Cons: "our flight from LAX to Montevideo was delayed by 8 hours, making us miss our connections. We arrived day late. Our luggage a day after that. Our friends went back home on another LATAM flight from Buenos Aires that was delayed. They were flown for 2 days around South America before making to LAX."
Pros: "Courteous, gracious service; efficient and comfortable flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight because of a death in the family. To change my flight was more expensive than the initial ticket itself. That is ridiculous. You should not do that to people. There should be a $300 change fee and that's it. At most. The entertainment would be good if I could hear it - but I couldn't. The sound was terrible. Uncomfortable seats. Barely slept. Overal terrible experience. Also turn on the damn entertainment while we are waiting on the tarmac - why wait until we are in the air? Almost every other airline - all the good ones - Emirates, Lufthansa, and other quality airlines - will let you access the in flight entertainment as soon as you sit. But the change cost of the ticket was the most offensive thing. I feel robbed, in a time of tragedy."
Pros: "Flight attendants."
Cons: "To go through security again in Lima to Miami in spite that we just came from another plane."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "Nice flight, nice plane. Food needs improvement"
Cons: "Ridiculous long time standing for boarding. This needs to be improved."
Cons: "vuelo terrible, los asientos totalmente incómodos, el pasaje no ha costado poco y suprimireron el snack, qué vuelo tan incómodo. ya no conectan la manga y la gente salio en todo el frío fue un choque muy brusco de corriente porque dentro del avión estaba muy caliente ya que creo que no funcionaba el aire acondionado y salir en todo el viento cualquiera se puede enfermar"
Pros: "I was upgraded to premium class. On my way back from Easter Island this was perfect because I had an accident 2 days earlier and needed to out my leg up. The service was great, they maje sure you are comfortabke. The luch very delicious. Thanks for the excellent service"
Cons: "At tge airport in Santiago it was not clear in wich lign I had to wait to check in. I stood about 30 minutes in the wrong one"
Cons: "My fly was delate for 2 hours reason from previous fly cancellation. They didn't notified me."
Pros: "The fact I never have to fly this airline again after today"
Cons: "Without a doubt worst flight experience I've ever had. I'm still in Miami airport after the flight was delayed 14hrs. This is the riot cene from the gate last night https://twitter.com/scrollinondubs/status/851640677595271168 airline never apologized nor explained situation. Sent cops to the gate instead to control the angry mob. Awful awful experience. Will never fly again"

Pros: "The onboard crew was great."
Cons: "Computers offline in La Paz resulted in absurdly long wait to check in. In Santiago waited a ridiculous amount of time for buses to take passengers to the terminal."
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"
Cons: "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"
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Delay was a drag and bathrooms were disgusting"
Pros: "Crew was nice and organized, easy check-in."
Cons: "Had the last seat, so could not recline - lady in front of me had a chair that went super far back and was practically in my lap, turbulence was crazy landing!"
Cons: "It was 1.5h late"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Should have boarded 30 minutes earlier!"
Cons: "Gol changed our direct flyght departing 14h to a connected one departing 7h rriving 17h. This company is a shame, and brazilian Agency does not forbid that (Gol could simply return our money back)."

Cons: "Avoid delays and communicate better about the delays"

Cons: "Serviço de bordo"
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."
Cons: "Their international flights are all supposed to be on the 737 Max, but since that aircraft is currently grounded, the international flight was on a 737 intended for use on shorter domestic flights."
Pros: "On time Had a hard time trying to check in online. Crew was extremely helpful"
Pros: "Pessoas super simpáticas e muito atenciosas. Espaço gigante para as pernas na fileira de emergência."
Cons: "Opções de alimentos a bordo."
Cons: "Este vôo tem atrasado sempre."
Cons: "Este vôo tem atrasado sempre."
Cons: "Este vôo tem atrasado sempre."
Pros: "On time, entertainment"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours due to Boeing issue. There needed to be some sort of assistance. We were offered access to the GOL lounge without asking, which was welcome, only to be refused when trying to enter. The attendant was not helpful, in fact rather negative and condescending. Not supportive."
Pros: "Punctuality. Safety"
Cons: "Bagage delivery was a bit slow."
Pros: "Cabin crew amazing"
Pros: "V confusing to find the gate - signs not updated and total madness when we got there as many flights delayed"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Missed my appointment."
Pros: "Everything about today’s flight hit the right notes: wonderful lounge, premium boarding line, no one in the middle seat, overhead bin space was very good, Wifi to watch movies and a holder for my iPhone while watching the movie, quick and efficient food and drink service, etc."
Cons: "There were no negatives for me on this flight."
Pros: "The airplanee accommodations are comfortable and the service was very good."
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Cons: "I did not like the delays. My flight to Rio was delayed almost 4 hours and my return flight was delayed 1 hour. I would not fly this airline again."
Pros: "- Comfortable seat and clean aircraft at a reasonable price & time - On-time"
Cons: "- Kayak displayed that 1 checked bag was included in fare when it was not"
Pros: "On time and great customer service"
Pros: "Perdimos el vuelo por demora en el tráfico y nos ofrecieron muy gentilmente otro vuelo sin costo. Estoy muy agradecida!!!!!"
Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bien"
Cons: "la atencion del personal en tierra me parecio deficiente"
Pros: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"
Cons: "Los sobrecargo un poco antipáticos deberían de colocar más aeromozas"
Pros: "Quick boarding, smooth flight, and my checked bag was waiting for me at the carousel by the time I got down to baggage claim. All in all, a very easy flight"
Cons: "The carry-on bag policy is a bit unusual so I ended up checking the suitcase I’d typically bring as carry-on"
Cons: "space on the seats, and between the seats"
Cons: "Space on the seats, between the seats."
Cons: "flight was delayed for no explicable reason"
Pros: "In general is fine, but the same price of all the other airlines . I flew 3 hours and no tv! (and no meal) I'd fly Avianca next time: They all have your personal tv and gives you meal even for short flights."
Cons: "It was on time."
Cons: "Incluir español en la comunicación en el avion"
Cons: "First flight was late so we miss the connection and the second flight is even left earlier knowing than 10 people had to take this flight No entertainment on flight Had to pay for beverage Poor english"
Pros: "Space between seats"
Cons: "Lack of food options"
Pros: "Flight with space"
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Food consisted of a Dixie cup size drink of juice and a super dry mini hot dog size cheese sandwich"
Pros: "Internet on board for free! Amazing!"
Pros: "No entertainment available. No monitors on seats..."
Pros: "Very clean, orderly boarding"
Cons: "Need more instructions on boarding in English"
Pros: "It was a short flight so there was no entertainment and I believe the snack was just a snack. But neither of those two things were necessary anyway, I was quite happy to just take the short trip without. I like GOL, it's a nice airline and the people all seem very happy to work."
Cons: "Although not really necessary, it would have been nice if the inflight magazine could also have English because most of us first language English people don't speak a second language, unfortunately!"
Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "No entertainment ... food was too cold"
"Quick and easy. Chairs are hard but short flight, so no problem. Crew smiled and were nice."
"Our flight was delayed by 7 hours"
"Red eye from LAX. The most uncomfortable First Class seats I have ever experienced. No blankets or pillows. One bag of chip-like objects and two beverages for the entire flight. It felt very stingy."
"This flight was intense. It was overcrowded, people weren’t following Covid guidelines. And in general, was a mess due to young kids causing a lot of noise and disturbance. I ended up with a headache the entire flight because of it."
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I like that all the chairs have working electric charger. Other airlines probably have this but it is important for me and they have this."
Cons: "The Terminal in Chicago had no open amenities and overcrowded."
Pros: "Everything about my trip was exceptional!"
Cons: "Entertainment system nor working properly. 40 minute flight delay due to minor cabin seat malfunction."
Pros: "Nothing special good or bad"
Cons: "My seat did not recline properly and had to sit upright throughout the flight, so was less comfortable."
Cons: "We need food"
Pros: "I had a great seat"
Cons: "Attention to detail by the gate attendant who totally missed that I was boarding the wrong flight"
Cons: "Leave a seat empty in the middle could be good for social distancing"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "American has been overbooking flights, doesn't respect social distancing, not true that the middle seat is empty, the person next to me coughed frequently, and since it was a FULL flight, I couldn't get another seat!, never again American"
Pros: "Very timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"
Cons: "How come I always have a beautiful and talented flight attendant? She was perfect!"
Pros: "Flight diverted. Poor communication"
Cons: "Realistically explain options of what may happen due to weather issues"
Pros: "I was pleased there was entertainment for a short flight."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and I could only be booked onto one the following day, causing me to miss a good portion of my dear friend's wedding festivities. I am pretty bummed to have paid the amount for a Friday flight only to be able to arrive on Saturday."
Pros: "Ne’er front of plane for easy on/off. Payed extra for extra leg room."
Cons: "Flight attendants were overworked on a full flight."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was an issue where someone had boarded and somehow taken my seat. I was asked to wait until the very end and then allowed in my seat once the passenger in my designated seat was asked to deboard the plane. I don't know how that could have happened."
Pros: "Or some attitude re-adjustment. I usually observe rude passengers acting the way some of the stewards were acting."
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "I got to Boston safely and the pilot and attendants did their best jobs. Also my luggage arrived in a timely manner."
Cons: "Your seats are too small even for a relatively small person. You should hire more flight attendants so that they are more available to help customers. We should be fed on flights of 6 hours long. American treats us like chattel and make flying unappealing."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Cons: "flight kept getting changed from delayed to on time then we finally get on the runway and have to shut the engines down and we were told that we would have to wait there for an hour"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."
Cons: "I specifically never choose American Airlines because whenever I do there are problems. I chose Iberia, not American Airlines and I got switched to it. Sat at the gate for 2 hours after my flight was ALREADY delayed because they didn't load our luggage under the plane correctly and it wasn't safe to fly. I will be calling American Airlines to file a complaint."
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "United airlines canceled a flight last minute that I needed in order to get to my best friends' wedding on time, I usually fly AA but the United flights were slightly cheaper at the time. The options United gave me would have had me missing the wedding, AA had more flights that allowed me to make it in time, considering it was booked 12 hours before take-off, it was decently reasonable and left on time and got in early (imagine that, United). Thank you American Airlines, again!"
Cons: "The connecting flight was with a partnership airline but I was not notified of this before I got on my flight. When I went to the information desk they had no idea where my flight was, or if it even existed. I had to wait for the Hainan Airlines booths to open for a different flight and then ask them. I waited over an hour in total and was then afraid I would miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was updated and refreshing."
Cons: "Snacks was only pretzel"
Pros: "Everyone operated fast and professional"
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Streamlined boarding process"
Cons: "Outbound flight was delayed by 2 hours because the flight crew that was supposed to fly our flight was delayed relying out of some other airport. Had to get a rental car and ended up reaching my friends place really late. And had an interview early next morning. Not ideal at all."
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "Like the entertainment selection with the gogo app. Just wish there were power outlets to charge my device while watching. Old plane didnt have any"
Cons: "people suck at boarding and there are too many priority classes (i'm gold)"
Pros: "- It was on time"
Cons: "- No food although I was entitled to free snack with my status - Service was inexistant - Premium seat (front row) thanks to my One World status but no space for my legs at all - it would have been better in a normal seat"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Pros: "I liked when we finally got seated and the captain gave us an update as to travel timelines."
Cons: "The boarding took an hour longer than expected and nobody was alerted because of the delays. There was only one crew member at the gate checking in all the people. There was no in flight drinks or snacks. The flight staff was curt."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "Sat on the Tarmac for 3 hrs before being put on another plane"
