Pros: "Taco"
Cons: "Taco"

Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"

Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"

Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."

Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Cons: "Smooth on time flight"

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: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"

Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"

Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."

Pros: "On time/ early arrival!"
Cons: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."

Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

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"

Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."

Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"

Pros: "Movie"
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."

Cons: "Everything"

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: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."
Cons: "Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal"

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: "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: "Good Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats"

Cons: "Were to plug a charger, pillows, tv screens"

Pros: "Great customer service at check-in, gate and wonderful crew! The flight attendants were some of the best I've had on any airline."
Cons: "We were seated in the back row and the seats did not recline. What made that even worse, is they are COMPLETELY upright. I mean you are sitting at nearly a 90 degree angle! The other rows un-reclined had more recline than the last row. This was an older 737 and those seats never should have been installed on that plane. Luckily, there were a few empty seats and we were able to move, although not together. 3 of our 4 flights were on newer planes, and on one other flight we were also seated in the back row. But, those seats reclined and were as comfortable as any other seat on the plane. COPA, if you're reading this, kudos to your great operation, but do NOT use that horrible old 737 on such a long flight. Or, only use those seats for standbys!"

Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was good n"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"

Cons: "Get with the times and stop using plastic cups."

Pros: "Crew were trying but non of them spoke English"
Cons: "I have never had such a terrible experience like this one"

Pros: "Premier class services."
Cons: "entertainment and toilet cleanest."

Pros: "see previous comments"

Pros: "Nothing, rude and not caring for their customers. My flight from dtw to Chicago was canceled and I was never informed. I lost 1 day of my trip and a wedding. Worst airline."
Cons: "Notify flight cancellation, rebook the flight with another airline, and offer a compensation since we missed a wedding and that was the whole reason why we were going to Ecuador. Worst costumer service ever."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They were very attentive throughout the course of the flight."

Cons: "Good service"

Cons: "Nithing"

Cons: "Too warm in cabin. Someone was sitting in my seat 7D and actually began to negotiate w me to sit somewhere else."

Cons: "4.5 hour delay so connecting passengers could make the flight. Unacceptable. Maybe the airline ways 30-60 minutes, but no, Copa as a third world airline decided to make everyone wait 4-5 hours. So, rather than arriving at 11pm, we arrived at 3:15 am. Unbelievable from a Star Alliance Partner."

Cons: "Seats very small"

Pros: "the meal was nice."
Cons: "that I was crammed into a seat. I was seated in the back row and the person in front of me leaned their seat all the way back and because of my height I was literally stuck. Flight attendants wold roll eyes if I didnt understand their spanish immediately or spoke english to them."

Pros: "The breakfast was good, warm, fruits were fresh."

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: "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: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Cons: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"

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: "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"

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: "Great staff and quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

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: "The flight attendants excellent customer services"
Cons: "An item stolen from my luggage"

Cons: "We did not have the little TVs"

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

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."

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."

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: "Friendly and Courteous employees. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Gates were not available upon arriving at destinations. Once we had to take a shuttle bus from plane to gate."

Pros: "Nothing. This airline is trying to appear as a big, powerful company. I choose them because there was direct flight from Chicago to Panama City. Big mistake. Take any American or European Airline. Worst experience ever!"
Cons: "Flights not on time, always late, lying employees and crew. They show a flight to Boston signs on the flight to Chicago, no airconditioning working. Bunch of idiots and incopetent people playing airline with passagers lifes. Never use them, you will thank for this advise someday."

Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."

Pros: "Nothing. Everything was a bad costumer service."
Cons: "I missed my flight because in the town I live , there was a landslide and rocks fall on the road. And it was impossible to get out of the town and I didn't find any help for refunding or changing the dates of my flight. Really bad costumer service, I'm still waiting for a reply of the emails I sent to vayama. Imposible to comunicar with it by phone with them and with the kayak office in Colombia."

Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."
Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."

Pros: "The crew were nice and they had good meal servir."
Cons: "We were in the last row which wasn't comfortable. The flight departed late, arrived late, and it took almost an hour for the bags to come out. The entertainment was also very poor."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."

Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."

Pros: "It is good"

Pros: "I was really excited about the timely correct schedule of the flights with British Airways."
Cons: "The long distances for running from one gate to the other. I know this is for elderly people like me, and the children as well, typically a little bit hard, but a small appropriate [air]shuttle same how is a thing, on which the advanced technology has to think. (?)"

Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"

Cons: "No tv on seat. Those dumb comedy tv show"

Pros: "How spacious it felt and there were film selections"
Cons: "My film kept stopping randomly."

Cons: "The boarding experience is awful. I wish that there was more order to the boarding process such as with Southwest Airlines. There is simply no control over rude passengers who push there way to the front."

Pros: "at least flights were on time. 20 minutes delay is not bad."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The customer service and the lack of assistance from the airline ground staff was horrible ."

Pros: "because of the cancellation the night before I was expecting chaos. But everyone was friendly and in great spirits. No issues. Way to keep it kool!"

Cons: "Poor oversight by gate staff on limited carry-on luggage space caused departure delay, easily avoided for next time."

Cons: "No more seats, rescheduled for the next day. poor service"

Cons: "It’s mainly all good but there are never really snacks on air canada other than pretzels (and today not even that). They are still my fave airline but they could step that up a bit!"

Pros: "The movies on board"
Cons: "The fact the plane was late"

Pros: "Meh"
Cons: "Meh"

Pros: "general state and size and comfort of the plane. Overall AC experience always good. The flight back to montreal, the service was exceptional!"
Cons: "only a dairy plate available, next time I need to specify no dairy entertainment -- too many ads and no previews for the movies so I have to start playing then stop and go through the entire same series of ads for the next one. the system just seems clunky and antiquated in today's tech age."

Cons: "Late!"

Cons: "they made a bunch of people check bags for plane which normally in my past experience has just gate checked larger bags. i'm not sure why they needed to check the bags, and we got away with not having to do that, but it seemed unnecessary"

Cons: "Actually I flew from Buenos Aires to Vancouver on Air Canada. I had paid to prebook my seats both on the B.A.-Torononto leg and also Toronto to Vancouver. Did not get either of the seats I had paid and prebooked. Therefore Air Canada is taking money but not providing the service or product...... technically this is stealing"

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: "One person assisting passengers whose flights had been canceled was gracious and skillful."
Cons: "My flight, 370 was canceled. Initially, one of the AC staff at customer service was overwhelmed and impatient. The next flight was delayed by about seven hours. My baggage didn't arrive in Toronto. I found it extremely difficult to learn where the baggage could be, spent hours on hold with Air Canada and then Dynamex, and waited four days to receive my bag. I was with about 100 people at a summer camp. The staff created a funny skit about AC, Dynamex (sp?) and the endless "your call is important to us" tape recording. I understand that flight plans must be canceled and changed due to weather, but AC relies too heavily on automated "service.""

Pros: "I liked the boarding lines based on groups."
Cons: "Only was offered a small bag of mixed snacks and a drink."

Pros: "Was arbitrarily assigned a seat with extra legroom. No excessive turbulence; landing was smooth."
Cons: "I was among the last to board and had to place my carry-on under the seat in front because there was no room in the overhead bin. This kept me cramped the entire time despite the "preferred" seating. Soft drink servings were really skimpy."

Pros: "Quick flight, on time."
Cons: "The TV's in the back of the seats didn't turn on for this short flight."

Pros: "One Time. A very polite staff!"
Cons: "Finding an overhead luggage compartment was difficult. Some peoples luggage is over sized, and some stow two items."

Cons: "Very bad cabin pressure -- lots of ear pain."

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: "You want comfort? this is the way to go."
Cons: "Entertainment on short flight was limited."

Air Canada is the least flexible airline in the world relative to refund."

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"

Cons: "Team in Chicago at Baggage Services was not helpful."

Cons: "Flight was late"

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."
