Pros: "Friendly cabin crew. Early am departure. On board entertainment is a great selection of movies/TV etc. Clean aircraft. Comfortable seating. Great flight."

Pros: "Baggage came quickly. Flight was on time."
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
Pros: "No issues at all. Great service all around."
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule.

They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"

Pros: "Crew seemed nice enough and everything flew on time."
Cons: "The seats were so close together, my femur (upper leg bone) would not fit in the space provided. I am 6'3" and have been a very faithful Delta passenger, but I cannot see flying with them anymore if I have to upgrade just to get minimal comfort. It is indecent. I will investigate other airlines."

Pros: "LGA caused massive delays due to construction."
Cons: "Nice airplane with good seats and legroom"
Pros: "The baby"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Not enough room. Older plane model. No screens for entertainment."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We were not able to choose our seats until we got to the airport. Which was a waste of time since we did online check in but still needed to go to the self check for seat assignment. Then by that time it was too late to try to get a seat with my wife who is very afraid to fly. Overall not a good experience"
Cons: "Rough flight and landing."
Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The customer service was great, the crew was great, the flight was great, everything was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Cons: "Need more legroom"
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"

Cons: "Nothing. I am now a loyal Copa flier. Any of my trips to Latin America I will consider flying with Copa"
Pros: "The seat comfort and staff especially the captain - very engaging"
Cons: "WiFi on the airplane to access flight map and other services."
Pros: "good crew, food was okay."
Cons: "really uncomfortable seats, too small for an international flight. couldn't lean back because the guy behind me was tall, so my back was hurting the entire time."
Pros: "Nice crew, work well together!"
Cons: "Nice job!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, always on time"
Cons: "The food was very little, a cold sandwich."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were really comfortable and the food was hot, delicious and filling"
Cons: "The fligth could come with entertainment services"
Cons: "The flight is so short that if you didn’t bring headphones, you miss all the entertainment. It wouldn’t be bad at all that the sandwiches are not stone cold. I fly copa very frequently and I know they often heat them up"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I was quashed beside a large stranger. The seats were not wide enough."
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Pros: "Staff was so nice when I felt sick and kept asking if I was ok. Entertainment was also good."
Cons: "The process of getting on the plane was terrible. Once getting though gate security there really should be access to water, a restroom and ac. Also out of group of five, three of us were moved up to business class. It seemed unfair that we couldn’t all have been moved up as a group."
Pros: "The only good think is that they are always on time"
Cons: "Please, better entertainment options. Movies are few and old! Food is getting worst at every flight... And please, don’t be cheap and pay for a tunnel for desembarkment."
Pros: "Everything was top notch!"
Pros: "flight was right on time"
Cons: "not much leg room"
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the tv in the seat"
Cons: "I did not like how the plane does not have WiFi. Also I had an issue with the food. I was seating in row 30 which is the back of the plane. They started the food in the front so by the time it got to the back we did not have an option. I don’t understand why their isn’t enough of the 2 options."
Cons: "I asked for vegetarian meals & didn't get it. I asked for seats not on the wing and got the wings all my flights. Not happy, bad service"
Pros: "We boarded on and left on time"
Cons: "There was a storm at our destination, Panama City and we were unable to land on time ultimately missing our connecting flight. The crew gave us little to no communication about the situation and when asked they said our connecting flights would wait for us. When we finally did land there was not a gate available. We had to wait for a bus to pick us up and drive to a gate, this took at least 30 minutes. When we finally got to the gate of our connecting flight, we were only 15-20 minutes late. Our flight had already left and the staff directed us to the information desk for assistance. They sent us in the wrong direction. When we got to the correct desk we waited for an hour and a half to be seen, there were at least 30 people behind us. They offered us a flight that wouldn’t arrive to our final destination, San Francisco, for two days. We opted to have them fly us to Miami and then had to purchase our own flight from Miami to San Francisco. When we boarded our flight to Miami later that night we had to wait for over an hour for other passengers and bags that were delayed. Our bags are missing and we had to wait in an another hour long line to submit a claim. Overall it’s been a complete nightmare."
Pros: "I liked 2 free checked bags. I liked that the flight was uneventful and on time."
Cons: "The staff while professional seems very busy and preoccupied. This airline has a small presense in Ft. Lauderdale and didn’t open for check in for several hours after I arrived. The kioks were not operational. My husband was flying in from Tucson on American Airlines and his flight was delayed. He was to join us on our international flight home. I tried to alert the staff well in advance that he would be arriving late but would be there in time to actually get on the flight. The staff was not helpful with this matter at all. They did nothing to accomodate these special circumstances that were beyond our control. Even finding a staff member that was available for me to talk to was a challenge. My husband’s flight arrived at the airport an hour before takeoff but nothing was done to try to get him on our flight home even though I had explained the problem 2 hours before that. As a result, he was not able to travel home with us on Copa and had to buy a ticket home on JetBlue. We will not choose Copa again."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The flight was not full so I had the row to myself and could stretch my legs. Overall, though, there was good legroom and the seat was generously sized."
Cons: "Would have like an adjustable headrest so I could sleep more easily."
Cons: "Copa needs to start letting customers choose seats a head of time, for my second leg the system didn't allow me to do so when I checked in the day before, therefore I got a seat didn't want."
Pros: "The legroom on Copa in economy is outstanding and worth the few sacrifices listed in the dislikes. Crew is friendly http://www.etbtravelphotography.com/whytoflycopaairlines"
Cons: "In economy no charging station and onlyonemobie on drop down TVs. Glad my flight was only 6 hours as I ran out of reading material and computer as almost dead."
Pros: "Overall service was great"
Cons: "My return flight had me seating separately from my girlfriend that I was traveling with"
Pros: "Reminded me of what a pleasure flying was 15 + years ago. Copa had a great inflight movie (personal preference) included with the cost of the flight. Dinner was okay, but they served wine with it which made it better, also included with price of the flight. They did offer headphones for those that wanted/needed then for the inflight movie, once again included with the price of the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not overly nice. Typical flight to Orlando with A LOT of young children, but the one constantly kicking the back of my seat was one of the worst experiences of my flight history (not the airlines fault)."
Pros: "They eventually gave me the seat I had long before paid for."
Cons: "They told me at check in that I was "STAND BY" even though I had purchased my seat 4 months prior."
Pros: "Price, service, food, entertainment, easy layover"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable, but it was fine."
Pros: "The overall experience was excellent, everyone was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The only thing worth noting was that sad, sad sandwich they gave us. It did bring a tear to my eye. I would have prefered no service, or the ability to buy something (which im not sure i coul have done)."
Cons: "My departing flight was cancelled due to weather and the only alternative flight offered was 7 days later. I offered to travel to a nearby airport to fly to the same destination 8 hours later, but was told I would be charged a $800 change fee even though I could buy a new one-way ticket for $400. So I bought a new one-way ticket. Then Copa told me that because I would miss the original connecting flight in Panama (which was impossible to reach because they cancelled the first flight) they would cancel my return flights. They forced me to pay $400 extra on top of the full return fare for just a one way flight, while leaving me to pay for another one way fare at the last minute."
Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "Entertainment cut off during the beverage service and wasn’t restored."
Cons: "The Bathroom has paper toilet used in the toilet paper place. The girl was talking in Spanish and English but not friendly at all. Also we went to the gate and we could not pass with water that we bought in the airport to the gate and was not another option to get water once that you get to the gate. Not a good trip at all."
Cons: "After reporting that things were stolen...Copa deny my claimed."
Pros: "The food and flight crew were good. Both of my flights they served breakfast, just for reference."
Cons: "Checkin was poorly operated and the return flight had no inflight entertainment. I have never been on an international flight with no entertainment. There are certain expectations for flights that cost that much."
Cons: "The aircraft was really old, the space between the seats are so tiny that was impossible do not touch the person on your side, my knees came touching the seat in front of my the wole time, to resume the space, I can say that I never had a seat with so small space like that, even in domestics flights. About the food, they started to giving us a little oreo and just gived us some food again 6 hours later and they dont have nothing to sell, I spent the wole flight with really hungry. To complete, they dont have indivual flat screens, so you have to watch the comum tv, that just showed one movie and nothing more. I thing that its should be not permitted to flight on this aircraft for international flights."
Cons: "Worst airline of all time. Booked my flight several months ago. Attempted to check in the day prior to my flight but Copa's website was not working. Website was not working for 7 of the girls I was with either. Arrived to the airport over 2 hours early to ensure time for check in. Was told I no longer had a seat on the flight. Copa over booked the flight by 9 people. Was put on standby and luckily made it onto first leg of flight but they again took my seat away for the next leg of the trip. VERY upset. Will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Got off the ground quick"
Cons: "We had to sit on the tarmac taxiing for almost 20-25 mins and I had a connecting flight I easily could've missed had it taken much longer"
Pros: "All the way it should be!"
Pros: "Food and drinks on even short flights Very efficient and friendly crew"
Cons: "The flights had connections that were too close together which almost caused us to miss the flight"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Anytime I needed something, such as a refreshment or travel form, employees did not follow through on the request or even return to me. It took over an hour from arrival time for luggage to arrive."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, easy connections in PTY hub, crew was very friendly."
Pros: "Food wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Crew didn't know what food was being served. There were no movies to watch. The temperature on the cabin was freezing and there were no blankets available."
Pros: "Space between seats"
Cons: "Staff was rude and condescending to many passengers. Never smiled, and served the food and beverages with a bad attitude. Nothing else makes an experience worse in my opinion as a bad attitude. Both our flights were bad in this respect, however it seemed a little better on the return."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortable... no personal TV... very tough if you travel with children"
Pros: "Extra seating, leg room"
Cons: "We've had better crew consideration with other airlines"
Pros: "Crew, food, seats in first class were good."
Cons: "This was my first time flying Copa and on the way to South America, my flight from SF was delayed and I only had a 36 minute layover in Panama City, so I missed my flight and rheee wasn't another one for 6-7 hours. Then on the way back, we were flying from Panama City to SF and we stopped in Cancun without explanation and sat on the tarmac for almost 2 hours before getting in the air again. The other elements of the flight were pretty good, but really bad planning and logistics."
Cons: "On a direct flight from Cartagena to San Francisco we were delayed by an hour on the runway then stopped in Cancun for unspecified reasons. The Captain said we prepared to stop for one hour to refuel but one of the flight attendants said it was to change crew, which seemed likelier given the crew did change. We sat there for an hour with no communication from the crew. When we landed in San Francisco we sat for over an hour waiting for an open gate and also had little to no communication about how long we'd be waiting. Baggage claim took 45 minutes. Overall service was poor and communication was terrible. No accommodation for the significant delays and no drink service while we were waiting despite not being able to bring liquids of our own on the flight."
Pros: "Overnight flight, they don't think of giving you an bite to eat? Really? Also since it's a flight operated by united make sure you download their app before hand or brace yourself for a boring, entertainment free flight"
Pros: "I did allmy endeavors, very good service."
Cons: "AA needs to standardize their WiFi. Sometimes it is boingo, GoGo, or Panasonic or something other. Each has a different way of logging in. It is way too complicated. Sometimes you can watch on the iPad in a browser, other times you need a flash player or the AA app. Have a common way of at least accessing the internet, otherwise it can take 10 minutes to log in if switching from a GoGo yo Panasonic service. It is just too difficult and buggy. I am glad I don’t actually pay for the internet."
Cons: "Truth is they practice in like cattle. I ended up sitting next to a ginormous woman. It was a very uncomfortable flight from DC to Charleston. Come on American you're better than that quit using such small planes!"
Cons: "No reason to delay a 55 minute flight to make it over 4 hours just for rain. Absolutely ridiculous and I will be calling and complaining to be compensated for my time."
Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Pros: "Crew was great! Flight was smooth and on time!"
Cons: "Air conditioning!!!"
Pros: "Nice quick flight."
Cons: "Plane was really small. So we’re the seats."
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. Had a connection that was delayed several times and eventually cancelled without explanation. I was traveling for my best friend's wedding and they did not work with me to try to get me on the next flight. I had to book another flight from another airline."
Cons: "Thank you"
Cons: "I love it"
Cons: "Nothing you could do, it was a maintenance issue."
Cons: "More space for carry on luggage"
Pros: "Best leg room last leg."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Pros: "Flt on time & comfortable. Crew outstanding!!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Boarding lounge and plane were hot. No gluten-free options for snacks. At least I’d had a long layover where I could get a decent meal."
Pros: "All was great - we even arrived early."
Cons: "Not even a cracker"
Pros: "The cost."
Cons: "I could not even get the flight rebooked I never got on the plane Los Angeles and they acted like I was there and all was well. I never checked in.. emergency led to a reschedule but contact was never accommodated."
Pros: "Flight crew offered me compensatory AA aadvantage miles for screen not working"
Cons: "Screen did not work on video display. As always, seat was terribly uncomfortable. Felt like I was sitting on a wooden playground bench."
Cons: "Lost our bags on our 6 hour layover in Bogota and when we arrived in Lima (our last stop cusco) they were not nice about it at all. So rude. We almost missed our flight to cusco because of it as well even though we had almost a 3 hour layover. Took more than 24 hours to get the bags"
Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."
Pros: "Latam lounge in Bogota"
Cons: "Pay for premium seats, not enough leg room a rip-off"
Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was good to be honest"
Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food was so so nothing special"
Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "The staff doesn't hold passengers accountable to carry on bag size and additional bags. It results in cabin luggage storage being full before 3/4ths of the passengers board."
Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."
Pros: "Worst plane to travel 5 1/2 hours. Almost no legroom, very small seats."
Pros: "roomy flight, great movie selection, food was great"
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for the wine."
Pros: "I would like to include these miles to accumulate them. I flight with Latam to Río de Janeiro renta y. How can I get them?"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Cons: "Paying extra for seats"
Cons: "customs in miami is aweful. long waits. its a long maze to get back to the domestic terminal as well."
Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."
Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
Cons: "I called around 5 times since june or july to change my flight because I was injured at work and couldn't travel. I called customers service and they told me that I cannot change my flight they dont give another solution they just told me that I have to buy another flight ticket. I will not recommended amy of my family or friends to travel in vayama."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"
Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"
Cons: "Could not get voarding pass although an AA plane the ticket as tgey called it was co partner with LATAM, so American would not talk to me and LATAM could not help either. Eventhough I was talking directly in the LATAM lounge with a representative. Ridiculous could not obtain a seat assignment until I arrived in Bogota, there I found out that the flight was overbooked and ended up having the last of a center seat."
Pros: "Flight cancelled. Got routed through Aviancs."
Cons: "The flight never happened, so all in all, things we're pretty terrible!"
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Pros: "QUE SEA PUNTUAL"
Pros: "United is fine."
Cons: "They have a Delay and they comunicated late. I traveled with a 3 month old baby, so you can imagine whe you have a delay of more than 5 hours."
Cons: "Changed gates 4 times and walked all over the C terminal. Waited for 2 hours on the plane at the jetway for the captain to arrive (with no water). Finally offered 1 small cup of water and 1 bag of pretzels (at 8pm)."
Pros: "Made up time lost to bad weather. Several announcements from pilot-I always like that. Makes me feel more personally cared for. "My friend the pilot is taking me there". That might explain how it makes me feel. Wish they did it more. Don't usually complain but below you will see I did."
Cons: "Your headrest are especially cheap, plastic like, with little padding. Being in back row(no recline) would have been manageable if I could have leaned head to side to rest on something that extended out. Left too much light on (all down center) for an overnight flight. Served heavy dinner at 2am. Woke everyone up. Later light breakfast would have been more appropriate. Bathrooms reeked and waste bin overflow. Stewardess in back chatting. Don't they ever check?. They didn't seem to want to there."
Pros: "The lounge and boarding area at Houston Airport were great. The staff at boarding did a good job keeping everyone happy and in line and boarding in the proper zones."
Cons: "All the flight attendants were trainees. I was served cold coffee because it took so long to get from the front of the plane to the back. I was given a toothpick to stir it with. My headrest detached from the seat, and I had to sit uncomfortably during the flight. The plug for headphones was broken."
Cons: "Flight was late and missed connection. had to stay overnight"
Cons: "Airport staff rudest I’ve ever seen. Terminals extremely close together and over crowded."
Cons: "It seems flights are always delayed or cancelled out of Chicago. My least favorite airport"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "United flew late and we had to RUN to new gate for connecting flight. Old small jet. No phones could be on. Odd folks drug their dog on board and were asked to put it on the floor. ... oh no! !!!!"
Pros: "On time. Very nice flight attendants."
Pros: "Flying on the beauty Dreamlier Boeing 787"
Cons: "Luggage crew too slow in both airports"
Cons: "They switched my preselected seat, without my permission, and gave it to a flight attendant that was traveling. I dont understand why she couldn't sit one row behind my preferred seat."
Cons: "Had to download the United app to watch in flight movies. Then it didn't even work. The only thing that would play were the trailers."
Pros: "Help changes with my seat assignment"
Cons: "Leg room bad.....attendants. not very happy"
Pros: "One flight attendant who went above and beyond to compensate for the airline having prepared a vegetarian meal option"
Cons: "Called ahead to secure a vegetarian meal option for a 6-hr flight and the meal was promised. Once on flight it was explained to me that vegetarian option was not offered on this flight. If customer rep would have explained that, u would have taken measures to bring along a prepared meal for myself. Not okay."
Cons: "The Asian style snack mix was absolutely disgusting. I was expecting a thing of pretzels or peanuts, not a ball of wasabi"
Pros: "Economy tickets were over sold and I was moved to 1st class seat! Best flight ever.!!!"
Cons: "Customer service, baggage policy, service at the airport counter, in short everything."
Pros: "Flight was delayed but the pilots got us there in time to make our connecting flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "On an international flight didn't expect to pay for movies and our seats didn't recline. Made for a long and uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Because of the delay, I missed my connecting flight, but a United staff member was ready to hand me a boarding pass for a new flight right when I got off the plane. That took away any worry or hassle for me, which I appreciated."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 2 hours. Also, my headphone jack was broken, so I could not connect my headphones to watch a movie. When I tried to explain the problem, the flight attendant misunderstood and just ended up bringing me a new pair of headphones... not helpful."
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay caused necessity of connection to be unusable - no explanation. Virtually useless help in getting a new connection."
Cons: "I had a man sit next to me who was in the wrong seat but didn't move. He told the girl to keep his seat and he would stay next to me. He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."
Pros: "The crew was great and the pilot kept us informed the whole trip."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and there s no room to move. The seat in front of you is so close that watching the TV is uncomfortable. The seat pockets have no room for anything - a bottle of water doesn't even fit in them."
Pros: "Free carryon"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out wifi"
Pros: "Boarding , good communication"
Cons: "Crying baby + woman behind me non stop talking very loud during flight"
Cons: "Flight was at 0700. Delayed until 0831 then 0900. Then we were taxi-ing for an hour. Didn't depart until a little after 1000."
Cons: "The cabin smelled like an unflushed toilet. That should be enough!!!"
Cons: "Sat in plane on runway for an hour"
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "I was not able to use the TV because the key to change channels was broken. I did not like the food, Too many calories and starches and the airplane was old and outdated. Thanks"
Pros: "The seamless service from reservation to arrival at destination"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a lower fair"
Pros: "United continues to disappoint. I'm turning in my miles membership. I've tried to be loyal but enough is enough"
Pros: "I arrived two hours early to the airport as specified and arrived to find out my flight was delayed by over four hours. So my daughter and I had to sit in the airport for over six hours."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled after a 10 hr delay. No compensation offered. Told us too bad so sad. Pushed us off onto American and acted like they were doing us us a favor. Today was the day I swore my allegiance to Southwest Airlines. I don't care if you gave me a lifetime supply of flights and the CEO, your business model pales in comparison to that airline. Disgusted is the only word I can use to describe my experience. Save the hassle, use southwest even if it costs more."
Cons: "Everything. Worst travel day ever"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reasonable accommodations when I asked about a month ago to cancel and was told non-refundable or additional charges for changes"
Cons: "It was terrible. It was ridiculously hot and the plane smelled like pee. It was the worst flight experience my fiancé and I have ever taken. Shameful condition and experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The aircraft was a bit older for a 6 hours flight so I felt too closed to a person next to me"
Cons: "Both domestic flights got cancelled. I lost the first day of my vacation and had to miss an extra day of work on the way home."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "They lost my husbands luggage from Morgantown to Charleston and we sat for about 10 minutes with no gate in Charleston when we landed!"
Cons: "The Gate was changed several times with very poor announcement. Entertainment is N/A on these type of flights."
Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Arrived on time. Fast boarding"
Cons: "A little turbulent"
Cons: "Plane too small to support carry-on suitcases, so everyone had to check them gate side and then wait for them right outside plane. All the hassle of carry-on (carry belongings through airport) without the perk (having belongings available during flight)."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Could not be helped but a delay of a little over an hour."
Pros: "Everybody help me good information Thanks"
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "The overall punctually of the flight was very accurate and i appreciate that very much."
Cons: "One flight attended in particular was very rude. Blonde short and slightly over weight. Her deminer towards the passengers was very unprofessional. It is unfortunate to have someone like that in a 6 hour flight. Seats are very small and couldn't charge my phone. Also couldn't watch the flight path unless I paid for the entertainment"
Cons: "Was late like 7 hours"
Pros: "Punctual, good service"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food was OK, the entertainment was left to be desired. The comfort was just ok, but to be expected"
