Cons: "The flight fly on time"
Pros: "Everything except not much to eat"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for more then 6 hrs. Jet blue said everyone will get $250 credit. I called them last week since I received nothing from them. As of today still nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed significantly and no explanation was ever offered as to why."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled by JetBlue and rebooked in unprofessionally"
Pros: "Inflight team was epic"
Cons: "The weather could have been on our side"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "snacks were ok"
Cons: "two bathrooms were out of order"
Cons: "The plane was clean and comfortable..I enjoyed the various selections of available FREE movies to watch during the flight."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Our seats right upfront with the extra legroom!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "We got in ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The staff seemed tired and overworked. I got hit in the head by a flight attendant with the snack tray. An accident but still. Once we landed and we’re at the gate it took almost 40 min to get off the plane. That was ridiculous. Then after the long walk to baggage, luggage was still not there. Again we waited. Too much waiting after a long flight. I fly to NYC all the time and I’m usually in the city one hour after I land and it took 2 hours 15 min to get to Queens. Usually I have great flights with JetBlue. Last night was not the case. You get a C."
Pros: "Extra space seats. The crew. The food. The landing! Pre-board bag check at gate - asking for volunteers."
Cons: "The cabin temp was too cold. The entertainment was awful."
Pros: "Although it was stormy there was very little turbulence and the flight was smooth overall. The staff was great and made sure to come by fast."
Pros: "average flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "There is no online check in! Kayak sells multi-airline flights with airlines from different alliances and that does not allow you to check in online. We got to airport at 3:45 am- no one at the check in counter, employees finally arrived at 4 am, checked in, but then we don’t have seats asssigned! We get to the gate and wait-wait-wait until almost 5am and finally the employees were able to find someone willing to move so that myself and kids don’t get seats in emergency exit row. Nuts. Very unpleasant(not the employees, those were nice-it’s the check in and seat assignment policies)."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and comfortable and everything went official"
Cons: "The film did not work"
Cons: "I appreciate the commitment to safety but it seemed odd that the entire plane was help up for almost an hour to add a quart of oil to one engine. Otherwise an excellent first experience with Jet Blue. We will be back."
Pros: "I liked that all people working for Jetblue can't wait to be of assisstance to you. All are well spoken and neat. The operation runs so smoothly. Its just a wonderful experience."
Pros: "Jet Blue was GREAT- as usual. I want you to know that getting through security in ATL airport was an ordeal. Incredibly long lines, disorganized (a sign clearly said, TSA Pre-check- line up here) and then the people managing the lines yelling at us (and this is an observation) because they wanted us lined up further back. This was baffling because the actual line into the TSA space was empty at that point. I think the ATL security staff could all benefit from some further training about to work with people effectively AND ATL airport needs to look at their systems. I know it's a busy airport, but there has to be something better than what they are doing now!"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get the relevant information on time"
Cons: "We were not fed food!"
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "They said one bag and one smaller carry on allowed. Then at gate required several of us to check our bag (no choice) to keep room for customers paying extra for overhead space (extortion...). It was a red eye flight but all TVs in our row would not turn off so all night changing bright lights 10” from out faces. Their attitude, “too bad...sorry. Use our really uncomfortable eye masks that don’t really work.“"
Pros: "Length of flight"
Cons: "The boarding process took nearly and hour - same for unloading. I understand special accommodations - but maybe not for the entourage of family members, friends, and acquaintances. And perhaps the people needing wheelchair assistance should wait until everyone is off the plane instead of going first."
Pros: "I like only 1 thing wi - fi is working good."
Cons: "I don’t like anything. It’s a worse airline ever i take I would like to suggest never ever fly with jet blue . I go through so many problems so rude employees working at help desk . Especially steven he said he is supervisor then he says he is only shift leader instead of helping he just talking so mean guy . This is really a big story i try to put in small words ...i fly with them on march 2nd LAX to JFK my finale destination is amritsar in India because of their fault i miss my next flight . The lady help me in morning she is very mean i wanna talk to supervisor she say I’m supervisor but she is only shift leader.i forgot her name . When steven told me he is supervisor i was like"
Pros: "Half the passengers were sleeping in rows to themselves. I’m 6’5” with a bad back and was stuck in an aisle seat, unable to even rest much less sleep. I get that those seats were available for purchase, but after the doors close it seems ridiculous to not let a customer sit there, ESPECIALLY is taller folks!!!! One could make the argument that it’s less safe as well, seeing how there’s no one IN the exit row to help open the window in the event of an emergency. I like Jetblue but this policy is likely to keep me from flying them if I can fly for just a bit more $ and have comfort."
Cons: "Heartless rule, give the flight attendants power to make customers happy...healthy!"
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Pros: "The second flight attendant approached was helpful."
Cons: "Upon boarding an odor of vomit was obvious. An attendant announced that a previous passenger had been sick in the row and there was no time to adequately clean it. There was only one food option available for purchase. Neither the overhead reading light or entertainment system at my seat worked. The first attendant I approached told me she could find me a seat in the back of the plane. I declined as I reserved a seat in the front of the plane in order to deplane and go through customs swiftly. I was then offered a seat directly behind the row where the passenger had vomited. Eventually, a different attendant placed me in a seat nearer the front of the place where both the light and entertainment system worked."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed making it so I and several others had less than 4 minutes to catch our next flight. The flight attendants wouldn’t help us at all. Instead of having us come to the front of the plane to exit first we had to ask the rest of the passengers if they didn’t mind letting us through to catch our flight. I have severe psoriatic arthritis and I had to sprint to my next gate that had been changed making it much farther away from our arrival gate. Now I get to spend my vacation in pain trying to recover."
Cons: "None of the movies that appear on the website for this tupe of aiecraft, on this route , were actually available on either on the flights. if i knew that was the case i would have booked with another airline."
Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "People were being inconsiderate towards one another and staff did not care to diffuse the situations."
Pros: "The one thing I liked was the expedited service I got because my brother needed a wheelchair. The comfort of the plane was really nice as well, one of the best flights I had in a while."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was how my flight got cancelled and the only flight I was able to get was 4 days later. So I was stuck in the Dominican Republic for a total of two weeks!! I had to miss another weekend at work which made me lose a lot of money since I’m a barber and lost some one my clientele. On top of my flight being cancelled it also got delayed again but only by 30 minutes so I wasn’t so upset. When it came to the boarding, that had to be the slowest boarding I’ve went through. The gate seemed very behind on the technology and that caused the workers to work even slower. At times they had to step away and go on their monitor to fix something out so it took an extra 30 minutes before I even got into my seat, and I was sitting in row 6 of the plane. Then after everyone was seated the flight got held back an extra half hour because a lady wanted to file a complaint saying that she got pushed and ended up being the only person that got kicked off the flight so she did it all for nothing. So with everything happening, our flight got delayed an hour and a half. Very disappointed.."
Pros: "The flight was normal. The crew was nice and the flight itself was painless."
Cons: "There were only two flights, one to my and one to Boston. My bag went to the wrong place and the way they handled it was disgusting. Making us run around the airport with no answers and nobody wanting to check the conveyer belt. Then they said if they found it they would let me know. They found the bag and they said by 6:30. Well, 6:30 passed and they had my bag but they couldn't tell me when it would be delivered and they use a third party company who they didn't have a contact number for or any answer as to when it would be delivered (I needed several things for work so it was a rush). Lastly, the lady I spoke to on the phone said it was my fault that I would not be there to receive the bag the following day as they did what they are supposed to. I was really surprised with how bad this customer service was as a whole. No communication and just nasty."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Our seat assignment. We were assigned to last two seat on isle and it was too uncomfortable. our seat leaned back very little so it was too hard to relax on a 12 hours long flight. We were exhausted. Also plane was very dirty."
Pros: "On time, very smooth flight"
Pros: "The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines."
Cons: "The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of leg room. Very friendly staff even though the flight was maxed out the flight attendants handle every situation professionally."
Cons: "This flight was delayed as usual. The entertainment was out of date and hard to use. Was not sure if I would be charged for the headset or pillow so I opted not to get them."
Pros: "The flight was fast.and everybody had a great attitude"
Pros: "Low fares. On time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Americans today travel with hand luggage and duffels which should be in the hold as ticketed baggage. This practise delays boarding, delays disembarkation, makes the aircraft top heavy in takeoff and landing and creates 'pop open and drop' type accidents. Nothing larger than a purse should be allowed as hand carry."
Pros: "They refund me the money"
Cons: "I almost lost my international connection, had to pay double to get my destination on time"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1hour and 40 min. One hour at the boarding gate and 40min on the airstrip. Pilot said we were overweight. When we landed at 730 vs 557 we still had a delay because our gate was occupied causing a greater dalay. Due ro this delay I was late to work. The flight attendee making the announcements might have been new because she kept messing up what she was saying and shouting and mumbling through the speaker. I usually have amazing flights with jetblue but I'm highly disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "My flight from fort Myers to New York was amazing. Flight was ahead of time and crew was polite."
Cons: "When I received my luggage it was so damaged that someone used clear tape to keep it closed. There was no note inside the luggage to state if it was tsa who went through the bag so I went to customer service to inquire about it. The representative from New York airport stated that I over packed my bag that's why it was damaged. I can assure you that my bag was under weight and there was no problem when i last closed it. So to be clear both zippers on my luggage was completely destroyed and taped up like a ragged cloth. I was embarrassed to walk around with my bag and the only recompensation I received was a $40 credit to my next flight."
Pros: "Free wifi when I got my bags and was headed out of the airport. I had to order an uber to the wifi helped"
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "It was freezing. We boarded 1 1/2 hours late. The stewards were a bit short and not very patient. I saw people being allowed to board with way more bags than you said were permitted and some of the on plane bags were so huge that the front people had to check their bags at the last minute. Boarding was slow as it was clear that the stuff was not fitting in the overhead compartments. What happened to dimensions of bag restrictions? It is frustrating to the people that abide by the rules to see them so flagrantly ignored."
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Other airlines should adopt the 'boarding from the back of the plane to the front' process."
Cons: "But everything else about the flight was not great. The crew was slow (though they were polite and friendly). Movie and TV show selections were not bad, but the sound quality was so terrible that it was impossible to hear the movie."

Nothing

Cons: "Seats, sandwich"
Pros: "Great service like always"

Pros: "Avianca crew was great, flight was good."
Cons: "Colombian migration was polite and nice but i was held because my entry to the country did not appear in the system. I was told thar if things did not cleared, i would be fined for irregular entry."

Cons: "Legroom"
Pros: "Got the emergency exit seats, extra leg room"
Cons: "Choice of food"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing Everything was great"
Pros: "vrew was creat"
Cons: "I asked to put lacto ovo vegetrian meals on my flights since I could not do it at booking and this guy only put it on my outgoing flight and not my returning so when I tried to check in I chatted with an agent he told me it had to be done 24h before and it was too late. So I had only snacks."
Pros: "Sitting in the back places, away from bathroom nobody is disturbing you specifically in 2-4-2 configuration of A330"
Cons: "Flavorless for cooked food"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "Avianca does a great job! Excellent meal and in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "We had a three hour delay on our connection in San Salvador and the customer service surrounding this was extremely poor."
Cons: "People were NOT following instructions at boarding time... even though they were giving us instructions about who was boarding... I mentioned it to the agent when I boarded and he replied “No, that’s not true” when I was seeing who was boarding and when... if families with children were called... even single travelers were boarding the general boarding line... nobody really cared"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean"
Cons: "Late departure and arrival When about to land had to go up again for some runway congestion, I guess because getting later than schedule. This was my first trip with Avianca and both flights were late"
Pros: "Overall everything went well. Boarding was easy, quick, and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "I felt the space between rows is a bit tight and the food was fair."
Pros: "Generous food and beverage. No 1st checked luggage fee."
Cons: "My nonstop flight was anything but. At the San Jose Airport I got one boarding pass, and yet was told the flight was not direct when I inquired to confirm. I did not like that I had to offload some of my belongings out of my checked luggage. This was especially inconvenient as I had to deplane in Guatamala and go through their customs and security procedure all to get on the same plane 3 not so easy to get to gates over. And me with a broken toe, you can see how this would be not fun especially because I did not have any boarding pass or other information even telling me what gate I should be boarding at. It was really a small miracle that another passenger found someone to ask and I overheard the gate #. Stressful."
Pros: "The movies were the only good thing in this flight because the food sucks and the seat are very uncomfortable, which makes think on not to take Avianca for long distance trips anymore"
Cons: "The flight was delayed (53 min) and they only announced once the change in the gate from 51 to 43, many people were lost without knowing were to go."
Pros: "Christian the flight attendant was amazing!"
Pros: "They don't feel cheap like the USA airlines these days. Free entertainment, real food, free alcoholic drinks. Pilot gave my kids a tour of the cockpit and gave them a wings pin and a little toy airplane. Flight attendants are kind and efficient. AND they were the cheapest option. I want to always fly them if possible!"
Cons: "When you are selling a fly with connections, there must be at least 2 hours bewteen flyes, I was running like crazy to not lose my fly."
Cons: "I had cancel my flight with Avianca due to hurricane Irma and the airline would not cancel. It does not want to return the money"
Pros: "The same"
Cons: "The same"
Pros: "Very good overall. Crew thinks they are in the titanic or something they try too. Ugh to make it seem like it is luxurious but it nothing but."
Cons: "The food is the worst on earth !!! Crew terrible , with attitude"
Pros: "Speed and punctual"
Pros: "- boarding the plane was efficient and well organised - airline staff were friendly - when my flight was canceled I was sent to a hotel and didn't have to wait around in the airport - comfortable with plenty of room, pillows and blankets"
Cons: "- My first of two flights was canceled which was poorly communicated after waiting in a queue for two hours. I am still even now unsure as to why the flight was canceled as no one bothered to inform us as to what the reason was. - On my new connecting flight from San Salvador to Bogotá there was only two meal options (both meat) which I do not eat and was told to just take the meat out of the meal as there was no other options. Would have been helpful to have known before the flight so I could have bought my own food to take on the plane. - The charging points on the back of the seat were inactive"
Pros: "Plane is fine"
Cons: "They change the flight at the last minute so they can acomodate their own staff.."
Pros: "Much better boarding experience and many new movies to choose from. I watched the new Beauty and the Beast."
Cons: "Their protocols for taking off and landing are a little dated. Passengers are not allowed to use blankets during take off/landing, also all window shades have to be open. They were very serious about it."
Pros: "Excellent flight great flight attendants served alcoholic drinks with a delicious meals. I was greeted ny the crew when boarding and exiting the aircraft. Avianca was a wonderful experience."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "The landing was horrifying. After being on many commercial flights over the years I have never felt this way about a flight experience. The pilot seemed very inexperienced nor skilled at landing. The plane first took a plunge leaving everyone grabbing their seats in fear. The plane was going way too fast as we then continued descending while the plane tilted to the side and then the nose of the plane tipped downwards. To best describe the situation, the plane was completely out of control. Everyone around me was frightened and talking about the awful experience. Flight attendants nor the pilot made any mention of what happened nor did they make an announcement to make passengers aware that there may be some difficulty landing. Therefore passengers were left to wonder what really happened but it seemed as if this was the first time the pilot had flown a plane. After the landing I was sick for the rest of the day with nausea. I would like a refund and will report this matter to the FAA for answers and I believe they should investigate what happened on this flight for safety matters. I did not feel safe at all, and I have never had an experience like this. I'm afraid to ever fly AVIANCA again."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Their service has lowered the standards though and that is why I do not grade them 5 stars. In particular the crew in the plane was not as nice and the food was not as good as before. Compared to other airlines I frequent though, Avianca is the best."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Worst service ever and we got the last 2 seats in the plane. Pilot seemed to be disturbed and and had a bad attitude towards passengers that could be felt overtime he communicated anything. Maneuvers were really rough."
Pros: "On the flight down from Miami to Cartagena, we did not expect a meal...and since we are all vegetarians, pretty much did not get one, but the flight attendants gave us what they could. I called Avianca and requested vegetarian and received for all 6 of us! Also, pleased that my whole family was seated in one row."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "How they play yoyo with the fare....i paid about $1100.00 for a round trip flight from miami to barranquilla, and a couple of days later it dropped to half the price. On my way back from barranquilla to miami, i was excatly 4 minutes late, they refused to let me on the flight, which was not even boarding yet (1 hour away from flight time). They forced me to buy a one-way flight back, with connecting flight, for $550. I don't know if this even going to make any difference, or even be read, for that matter, but i thought i would relay that to other customers who are thinking about flying with avianca."
Cons: "they cancelled flight without giving us warning and we had to fly out following day on different airline"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Duration Of The Flight. But TACA Airlines is very BAD has to be the Oldest Fleet of Airplanes I've seen in a Long Time. I Guess TACA handles the flights from El Salvador to SFO."
Cons: "A 5+ hour flight the planes they use from El Salvador to San Francisco has NO Entertainment, NO USB Charging outlet and Meal was Horrible. You can really see the difference between an Avianca Flight and TACA flight'"
Cons: "Pessoal despreparado, levei meu cachorro de suporte emocional, me colocaram em uma poltrona qualquer, apertada. Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao. O meu voo foi cancelado e me colocAram em outro horas depois, um transtorno, e para completar estou sem minhas malas, porque nao sabiam o que tinha acontecido. Estou em orlando sem nada! Nao recomendo!"
Pros: "The punctuality is good, the crew is good."
Cons: "How can you sell a full fight on an Airbus A-330 and not have enough food for everyone?! On this flight, me and my son were left without a hot breakfast and their excuse was "sorry, we ran out" so we got only the leftovers from the serving trays. It's sad how airlines keep getting worst by the day."
Cons: "No sound"
Cons: "massive delay in the counter"
Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Spacing between seats and overhead luggage storage. They ran out of room before the entire plane had boarded"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."
Pros: "The cockpit crew waited to turn the plan off until the Footbal playoff game was finished. I thought that was very considerate of them."
Cons: "Seats were right but that I guess is to be expected these days."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"

Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Cons: "Short flight didn't provide food or beverage service. Cabin crew announcements were rapid & muffled, difficult or impossible to hear or understand. Would not have felt confident if there'd been an emergency."
Pros: "I had a great seat (exit row) with lots of legroom. They provided a free breakfast, and it was actually pretty good. A few hours later i was hungry and tried to buy some food but the cabin crew just gave my another breakfast item. The flight arrived on time, and the luggage was delivered a few minutes after I arrived at the baggage area."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a very good experience."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "Even though all the seats weren't sold out I couldn't upgrade my seat afterwards"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "No meal served on a 5 hours flight!"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
Cons: "I had a reserved Comfort Class Aisle seat, purchased at time of reservation and showing as my assigned seat through printing of boarding pass. At the gate, my seat was reassigned to a middle seat. This is a huge problem for me, as my back and leg injuries require the ability to stretch and move frequently. When complaining on Delta phone lines, I was told that the seat was needed for a Diamond member and therefore was "policy" to bump. Although I eventually received some compensation for the fact I paid more for the original seat, I remain very disappointed in Delta, if this is indeed the policy."
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is awful in every way imaginable."
Cons: "We booked tickets to Costa Rica with Copa and they just changed our flights to two days later than the booking. They didn’t even bother to inform us of the change we only found out because we booked through Kayak and they let us know. Apparently Copa expects you to frequently check your booking just in case they’ve changed anything and don’t feel the need to inform their customers of any changes they make. Then we were told we could get a Copa voucher to use for other Copa flights for having to cancel our booking and rebook with another airline as a 48 hour change to our flight made flying with Copa not doable for us. But the website kept telling us we had a voucher that was sent to our email but despite repeated attempts it never came through. And spent hours trying to get through to someone on the phone to sort it out with no success ever getting through. My advice. NEVER EVER FLY WITH COPA."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food was really bad"
Cons: "Easy and fast acces to aircraft."
Cons: "Time or order to boarding , entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Maybe more movies"
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane is getting old."
Cons: "Hot and delah"
Cons: "Everything it’s fine"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Baggage return was slow."
Cons: "Late to leave gate/ cramped"
Pros: "Everything!!!"
Pros: "On time!"
Pros: "Great seat. Right behind first class."
Cons: "delay"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "a/c full, needs more control."
Pros: "We seré stuck for 50 minutes in the plane, when landing as there was some problem probably with the airport ability to accept us. At first the captain anounced something but then no information was given. It was quite stressing."
Cons: "We"
Pros: "The food and entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Check in was fast and efficient. Flight was uneventful, no issues."
Cons: "Copa check in is now at Terminal 3, but boarding is from Tom Bradley Inter'l Terminal. We did not see a regular "high placed" sign for Copa which caused us to make two circuits until we saw the street side sigm which is in a nondescript area and easy to miss. My entertainment touch screen was not responsive and sticky. It froze twice. However after bringing it to the attention of the crew, they did make the effort of resetting it. In this regard I highly commend the very tall FA who was a credit to his profession. It still had problems but did work somewhat. I will add that in all my prior experiences in which this problem occurs the FA's are too busy, or forget to reset the entertainment system, so I happy that he did. The interior did not seemed to be very clean there were food stains on the pull out tray and no in flight magazine in my seat pocket. the cabin crew was nice, youngish but did not have enough personality to tell off passengers doing things that they shouldn't out of common courtesy like the passenger seated next to me playing Chinese language videos out loud on his i phone. The same group spent a lot of time burping and then spending an inordinate length of time picking their teeth with wooden toothpicks which did not make for a pleasant scene. I almost lost my appetite seeing which what vigor they went at it, what were they expecting to find? They would then spit the residue in the air making me a bit nauseous. The food was dire especially the two melted cheese/beef/chicken sandwiches served near the last third of the trip. The main lunch ravioli meal served earlier was not bad. The bottom line is that the flight was uneventful with nothing to note, but there is definite room for improvement."
Pros: "Reasonably good food, nice service."
Pros: "Easy flight, good service, attentive crew."
Cons: "Food was not that great."
Cons: "This flight did not have the screens for each seat, leaving no choice to choose what to watch or to see flight info."
Pros: "El tiempo fue rapido"
Cons: "La comodidad del avion. Son muy estrechos."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the connection was short the flight dropped me off on the tarmac never again will I go Copa"
Cons: "I didn't have a seat from Panama to Sao Pablo, because they oversold"
Pros: "Great comfortable flight. Decent sized seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Copa Airlines. Flight delayed an hour due to weather.(understand) We sat on the tarmac for 20 minutes when we got there. We ran to the gate. The guy scanned our boarding pass but didn’t let us board plane. We waited 6 hours to get a new flight booked. They had no line, no organization, they didn’t communicate what was going on, just left us sitting there in limbo. They never apologized for anything. They put us up in a hotel at midnight just to leave to catch our rebooked flight at 7:00AM. We didn’t have a chance to eat because we were stuck in line not knowing anything. When we asked questions they pretended like they didn’t hear us. By the time we got to the hotel we barely had enough time to sleep so we didn’t bother with the free dinner. They absolutely ruined our vacation. I’ve been using Kayak for years. Never again. This is beyond bad customer service; this is a total lack of empathy."
Cons: "The A/C it's very cold, and I asled for a blanket and they did not have one."
Pros: "The lost my bag and couldn’t find it till two days after.... they gave me no voucher or explanation I would like to be refunded foe this terrible experience ...."
Pros: "They offer food and free alcohol. This is not common any longer in the US."
Cons: "In Panama City during a layover, we had to go through security a second time."
Pros: "I liked how accommodating the staff was with seating for my family, as I was traveling with two young children and we weren't seated together. There was more leg room than most other domestic air travel companies I have been on. There was no upgrade charge for every little thing, such as blankets, pillows, etc. We were fed on each flight, and alcoholic beverages were at no additional charge. The exit tax to leave Costa Rica was included in our ticket, which I was not aware of until I was leaving the country. (nice surprise). Over all, most other airline companies in the USA have made changes that improve their bottom line, but they have completely ruined any favorable aspect of traveling with their airline (American Airlines, Frontier, Southwest, Delta, etc). Copa has done a great job of providing great service and cost for travelers. Please do not change your business strategy by removing some of the above mentioned benefits I enjoyed in order to improve your profit margin. It is refreshing to know there are still air carriers out there that retain the service that is hoped for by most travelers. Also, Roxana and her entire flight crew were outstanding. Thank you , I will fly with you anytime I have the chance."
Pros: "The crew on all of the flights were all very nice. At the end of the day, my suitcase did end up getting shipped to my house within a few days. It was just a little unorganized throughout the process of tracking it down."
Cons: "Following this, my flight in Bogota left 3 hours late. Not only did we board at the time we were supposed to be leaving, but then sat on the runway for an hour and a half before having to go back to the gate to refuel.... All passengers sat on the plane for 3 hours in Bogota before we ever took off with little to no communication as to why. Upon landing in Miami, my bag was then missing which honestly wasn't a big deal - I knew I'd get it back eventually. But with my new flight, I wasn't entirely sure which flight my bag should be with and which airlines (Copa or Avianca) I should go to regarding it. The staff for both were incredibly rude. My suitcase was the one missing and I was the happier, nicer one out of everyone I spoke to. I was told it would be shipped to my house which was great until I got an email saying I could pick up my suitcase at the airport. After searching for 2 hours of where to go and all staff pointing me to a different spot and offering little help, I tried calling the Avianca number I was given for any questions. Unfortunately, there wasn't going to be anyone who spoke English in until after my flight took off. After getting to my final destination, I tried calling the number again to try and sort out where my suitcase was and no one spoke English or could direct me to someone who could. I had to have my friend in Cali call the main office for me to find that my bad was still in Bogota after all of that."
Cons: "La comida no es adecuada para un viaje de tantas horas"
Pros: "The crew was super polite!"
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."
Pros: "14 hour Layover when you have to recheck luggage is terrible. Can't even check in for 8 hours so stuck outside the airport with no place to go until 6 in the morning. Not good at all."
Cons: "14 hour Layover and luggage did not go straight through. Had to recheck baggage after 8 hours. Then wait another 6 hours inside the airport."
Cons: "El aeropuerto de Panamá e el peor que he visitado en mi vida"
Pros: "Copa has the worlds very best gate agents and check-in agents by far... they had a huge line and held very professional atmosphere"
Cons: "Always the good there was none"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, causing a lot of stress at the terminal because many people had connecting flights. The Copa staff could not have been more helpful. Copa even put me up for the night at a Sheraton in Panama City when I missed my connection, provided free transportation to and from the airport, and gave me a free dinner voucher. All in all, a well handled experience in the face of disaster."
Cons: "Getting home a day late wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't Copa's fault."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
Cons: "The online booking company was confusing and not friendly"
Cons: "I'm still traveling.. copa rebooked on united.. is coming in at midnight instead of 2pm.. missed an dinner event I have planned. Disappointed some people.. plus I'm still not home.."
Pros: "I now am a fan of COPA airlines"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Leaving vegas to Panama they checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" .. Arriving in Panama we flew to costa Rica again checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" ... Now almost 11 hours later we arrive in Costa Rica and because my passport was ripped they wouldn't let me in the country and sent me back. Why your airlines couldn't have told me this before I got all the way to Costa Rica and passed two check points I don't know. So you guys said you would send us to Puerto Rico but I would have to by my own plane ticket home... Very disappointed in your airline. And to top it off my boyfriend and I had very expensive osprey packs we were traveling with .. We used a copa plastic bag to wrap them up in Vegas so the strings would not get caught .. When we received our packs in Puerto Rico YOUR employees had taken the bags off and cut my boyfriends 300 dollar bag! I will never fly again with your airline."
Pros: "I did get a window seat which i enjoy"
Cons: "No entertainment, old plane which didn't have very comfortable seats and the food was not very good. Also, boarding was done in a very disorganized manner in Panama."
Pros: "ok. good"
Pros: "I want expecting to get food on such a short flight, what a pleasant surprise!"
Cons: "There weren't any choices for entertainment, just one movie playing on a screen for everyone"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "People take too long to board the plane"
Pros: "Whole experience from San Jose through to Panama City was good. Although a short flight, the crew managed to serve a meal and drinks. As it was such a short flight, there was no entertainment."

You have to pay for food; disembarking was super long

The flight back was good. The flight there was horrible with a 16 hour delay. Loss of 1 day of vacation with Kayak representatives providing almost no assistance or care for resolution of the issues faced. We hoped to make up for the day's loss but neither Kayak nor BA helped. We were told to deal with it or seek refund weeks after booking and prices for other airlines had gone up.

Flight was changed. No communication from kayak. Had to spend a long time in the phone with American Airlines and ended up traveling for 20 hours when it should have taken 9.

Pros: "Everything was really good. Very nice crew. I will highly recommend it."
Cons: "I think it is one of the best."
Cons: "Waited for over an hour for trams to retrieve us from the aircraft."
Cons: "Constantly late! Unreliable and missed my connecting flight, AGAIN!!! 4 out of last 10 flights I have had lost luggage. No apology, it’s “just BA”."
Cons: "Just wish there was another few inches width on seats"
Cons: "The problem was the airline losing our luggage."
Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks and very tight quarters"
Pros: "Timing was good"
Cons: "They charge me for second bag on my way back although my ticket emwa for 2 bags"
Pros: "This was such a pleasant experience at a time when “pleasant” is not the common adjective. The plane was clean and comfortable. There were lots of excellent movies. The vegetarian meal was actually lovely. I know; who ever says that?"
Cons: "The snack was an odd assortment of mushy vegetables in an approximation of a Greek salad. Not good."
Pros: "It will as so bad I bought a return ticket on emirates for me and the family , it was a big mistake to book on air Azerbaijan"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seat rock hard. When I pulled the foot rest down the fabric was coming off to reveal years worth of food crumbs. Disgusting. TV screen was tiny. Seemed sort of staff, took them ages to bring food around, toilet was unclean with no toilet roll towards the end of flight."
Pros: "Good flight. Friendly crew members. We checked our carry on because the flight was full and the attendants said that they wouldn’t have room for all the bags. Checking the bags was very easy and we got to board the plane first."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was very nice and accommodating but was over shadowed by the experience of prior connecting flight and rediculous need to RUN thru London airport requirements to reach this flight."
Cons: "Lost luggage and rediculous connecting flights."
Cons: "There is no variety in the movies or shows The food is really average"
Cons: "My flight never happened due to the cancellation."
Cons: "The layover in London was too short and we missed the follow-on flight due to the flight getting into London late and BA not getting us through the terminal rapidly."
Pros: "Friendly and quick service."
Cons: "Waiting for a space at the terminal."
Pros: "Good staff and food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Cons: "the flight delayed a lot and i missed my connection flight as a result"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seats, entertainment system. Lounge at Heathrow airport served bad food. Bread had fungus in it. I pointed out to the staff there, and there reaction was "no big deal" !! There is such a big difference in"
Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"
Pros: "Behavior of board personnel"
Cons: "The delay in London"
Pros: "Service and Care with sense of humor! I have sat in both business and economy, and while I prefer the room in business, I still feel the service is just as wonderful in economy. I got all I asked for including bubbly in economy! I like to stay awake on the way back to the US and asked for two coffee's and a bubbly, a ginger and an OJ just before dinner & refills on cafe. Of course I thought I was pushing it to ask for it all at once, but they laughed, proceeded to fill my wishes and with a good sense of humor asked If I wanted anything else! I actually got everything I asked for! Super!"
Cons: "I pre bought my seat and chose an aisle. The plane was changed and I ended up in a window seat within the same row I had chosen on the other plane lay out. I prefer the aisle as I like to get up a lot and hate to annoy others who may prefer not to get up every time I do. I was lucky that the flight had plenty of empty seats and was able to move to an aisle after asking. What happens on a full flight? I would have been really upset. What is the point of pre-booking one' s seat? If the plane is changed, BA ought to take care to make sure a pre-booked seat gets a window/aisle near the row they chose. I suspect that is more important than the row on a long flight."
Pros: "The crew snd boarding"
Cons: "There were engine problems and the flight was delay by 2:20 and lost my train connection"
Pros: "The journey was not that long as expected"
Cons: "Delays...."
Cons: "I find it hard to believe that BA requires passengers to purchase basic needs like water. That was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with personal entertainment screen. Also had an extra seat next to me to spread out!"
Pros: "Food good."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff due to customer replanting and hunt for their luggage. Noisy children throughout flight. Unable to nap due to noise."
Pros: "Liked the dinner. Loved the dessert (chocolate cake )"
Cons: "Didnt like the breakfast. Omelette eggs too greasy aswell as the rest of food. Coffee wasnt good either"
Cons: "bigger seats"
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "No wifi. TVs were small and old"
Cons: "I bought a return ticket for my daughter to fly to Amsterdam for the summer. I was allowed to purchase this flight from Kayak and BA from ATL to LON to AMS. Departure was for the end of May to the end of August. When we were checking in the attendant told us that the ticket was no good and we had to purchase another ticket because the travel was over 90 days. At no time did BA or Kayak let us know this information but had no problem selling us this ticket. We were literally extorted for another $1000.00 so she could depart. Shameful! Will not be using your site or BA ever again."
Pros: "Everything on time. Crew had a smile."
Cons: "USB charger was not working in seat 34f."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Pros: "I worked for BA for 20 years. I was glad to book them. Ba Turned out to be AA Sat scrunched up between to big people. while in the back there were. 2 people sleeping across 4 seats. outrageous"
Cons: "No seats were allocated when i checked in for return flight. Flight overbooked. No time to change currency or stop for a tea as I had to wait and see if i was going to get a seat I was 3 and 1/2 hours before the flight."
Pros: "Very courteous staff. Food was good. Flight was fast. No problems."
Pros: "Live counters for dinner Boarding directly from lounge"
Pros: "en transit,une personne handicapee n'est pas bien assuree d'avoir sa chaise roulante a la descente d'avion,c'est ce qui s'etait passe a mon epouse. En transit a Londre j'avais du chercher en vain le service d'accueil en salle transit.Ce fut une mauvaise experience."
Cons: "There was no direction when boarding, resulting in 2 lines of people from different direction trying to board! No entertainment at all. You have to pay for even water."
Pros: "New plane, nice interiors of the plane"
Cons: "Delays at LHR"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "When the person in front of you lowers his seat 5 minutes after takeoff and keeps it down the whole flight, it makes it hard to eat and really uncomfortable. I have a LOT of miles (avieos or whatever they call them) but never get offered an upgrade to economy plus like I do on other airlines."
Cons: "20 min delay. Old plane"
Pros: "The trip was comfortable and the crew were professional"
Cons: "I liked my experience. No dislike"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible. It was beans, mushrooms, and asparagus. It also came with 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee was also terrible. If you sitting in the middle seats there is no space. The man's arms sitting in the seat next to me were pretty much in my seat the whole time."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful, very caring and courteous."
Pros: "We were in coach. They would not allow us to take any water on board the plane unless we were in business or first class. Really wierd. This was a night flight, so we slept most of the way.."
Pros: "For the last flight of the day out of Paris, surprisingly the flight left on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had to wait for a bus to take us a very short distance to T5. The flight was packed - too many people with large carry-on cases."
