Ever notice there’s no handicap seating on an airplane? There are special seats and areas on a bus for example. Why don’t planes give the same attention to people who need it?
They changed my seat number without notifying me so I walked up to the seat number on my boarding pass and looked a like a jerk telling the guy sitting next to his 2 kids that I thought he had the wrong seat. Otherwise the crew was nice. The movie selection was good, though English closed captioning would be appreciated. The breakfast was awful--no flavor whatsoever. Not at all like the delicious Peruvian food I'd been enjoying during my visit.
Horrible delay due to weather.
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours late. That matters more than anything else"
Cons: "Delta/LGA could observe that we will always have rain/fog and plan accordingly"
The passenger next to me was intoxicated and obnoxious. Seat 6B. He also never wore his mask the entire time.
Our favorite flights. Straight shots, with as much comfort as one would expect.
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late to board and depart."
Pros: "The seat súper confortable"
Cons: "After a very long day .. we slept on that last flight ! ❤️"
Pros: "The crew did a mediocre job of keeping us informed as to the delay of takeoff."
Cons: "There was some type of mechanical or electric issue that delayed our flight by 30 minutes or so, which is unwelcome for a flight that late at night."
Pros: "The plane needed more leg room."
Pros: "They left the bags at LAX. We we’re driving to Sun Valley and don’t have our ski clothes and equipment"
Cons: "Get our bags to us in the morning"
Cons: "Space on airplanes"
Pros: "I was fortunately upgraded to 1st class. The flight attendant was adequate. However, did not live up to the level of service I have come to expect."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I flew standby (for the first time) to London and check in team in NYC was great."
Cons: "Now, the team in London, wasn’t so great. They were a bit rude!"
Cons: "Well for one my seat was broken. At the beginning of the flight they said “there are meals for purchase available” when i asked for one they said they were all out but then gave out to other customers. Their attitudes were horrible."
Pros: "Met expectations; except for treatment of an oversized passanger, which turned out good in the end."
Pros: "Wine included with meal no extra charge. Thanks"
Cons: "More comfortable seats in main cabin"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the food was great, the ride was wonderful."
Pros: "Delta did a great job getting our checked bags from an overseas arrival to this flight. Boarding smooth."
Cons: "Seats are cramped in coach. Fact of life for all carriers."
Cons: "No video screens and wi-fi was too slow to use"
Pros: "Free food. Extra room."
Cons: "Waiting on runway"
Pros: "The fact that I was so relaxed."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "The flight crew made me feel like my daughter and I were part of the crew. They were so accommodating, professional and funny."
Cons: "I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT MY FLIGHT."
Pros: "The flight attendants gave great service"
Pros: "I araised safely in New York and all my luggage finally arrived. I suppose that is good but so much else was bad, very bad."
Cons: "The morning of my flight I got a notice the departures time was changed by one hour later but to still arrive at the airport at the same time. So I ended up spending almost four hours at the airport before leaving. Boarding was a mess as "groups" were not called but everyone just rushed the gate in mass and we're let on. Staff were functional but looked and acted surly. It was a functional flight in that I arrived at my destination but it was not managed and I did not feel my business was wanted-only my money."
Pros: "At least the flight wasn't cancelled?"
Cons: "Five minutes before the scheduled boarding time, it was announced the flight was delayed by 1 hour 25 minutes. I am almost certain this was not weather-related, according to flight trackers. I understand that weather delays are essentially out of airlines' hands. However, if the delay is caused for other reasons like "mechanical issues", or any other errors or miscommunications within the airline itself, then they should be held liable. My time is worth money, so any delays not weather-related should result in a reasonable refund based on the duration of the delay. An apology doesn't placate customers' frustration and inconvenience due to delays."
Cons: "Pretzel mix was lacking in quantity and taste."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Pros: "The crew, food, plane, everything was excellent"
Pros: "Plenty of room, on time"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "I had to buy a ticket on Southwest to get where I needed to go. So a wasted trip, wasted time and Southwest came through immediately after I had told them the situation. I'll be using them much more now."
Pros: "None of it!! Poor selection"
Cons: "All of it. Again poor selection"
Pros: "Thank God I was able to get a refund"
Pros: "The crew boarded us efficiently, and got us off the ground on time, but the boarding experience is not pleasant."
Cons: "The food selections are limited. The crew ran out of popular items in the economy cabin. The personal seat lighting on the B-767 never quite worked. I eventually gave up on it. The overhead bins were too small for many roller boards, which caused some passengers to be perplexed. Delta should offer some inducements to encourage passengers to gate check bags."
Pros: "The captain kept us very informed about what was going on"
Cons: "Only one engine was working"
Pros: "Same as previous"
Cons: "Same as previous"
Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from the start. Then furthered delayed at taxi. Then delayed again at arrival because there was no ramp. WTF"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Delta. They just hate their passengers"
Pros: "On a one hour trip no much to say, understandably no food or bererage service. Got me from here to there quickly. thanks You!"
Cons: "What I didn't like was two idiots behind me that talked loudly for the whole flight and it being a late flight it would have been good to catch a nap. Nothing to do with the flight but really they talked for the whole time they were sitting across the aisle from each other."
Pros: "Small plane. Not a lot of room for carry-ons."
Cons: "Short-ish flight"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "Your flight attendants were very personable and made a very long flight a comfortable as it could possibly be. They were pleasant and always available. Delta is always my go to airline ... especially on long trips as I upgraded to economy comfort and had a few more inches of leg room!"
Pros: "Product was excellent, the whole experience was amazing."
Cons: "Phone chargers, screens on the seats, pillows"
Pros: "It was a nice plane."
Cons: "The crew just did the minimum. They served the food and then disappeared. They didn't offer more water, coffee, tea or check to see how we were doing."
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The space between seats"

Pros: "Great crew! Responsive to requests and informative about choices."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Movies to choose from"
Pros: "Loved sitting in the first row in economy and in the emergency exit row too - lots more leg room."
Cons: "Wider seats in economy would be nice"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Seats could recline a bit more. Blankets could have been provided for every sit, instead of on-request. Made my connection in Panama City despite a 3 hour delay from Lima."
Cons: "Flight from Lima to Panama City was delayed 3 hours! We were already seated when we were asked to de-board and wait at the gate. More details could have been provided, so we spent those 3 hours waiting in line to find out the reason for the delay, new departure time, and resolving connections."
Cons: "I called in advance and asked for a vegetarian meal. Then during the flight they said they were not told about it. Also, they was only one movie as entertainment. That should not be allowed on an international flight >5 hours long. Very disappointed."
Pros: "It was a comfortable satisfying flight"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Lima. We kissed our connecting flight about less than 5 minutes. Now I’m in nyc and I don’t have my luggage. Worst experience ever."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Good as it is"
Pros: "Kind, attentive, wonderful crew! Adjustable headrests. Decent food options throughout flight!"
Cons: "My seat did not recline since I was in front of the exit row. Looking back at the seat options this was made very clear but I missed it."
Pros: "The food and beverage were very good"
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "Tha confort on the plane"
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."
Cons: "we selected seats months ago when we booked these flights, yet they didnt get one set assignment correct."
Pros: "The service was good, both on check-in, and in the airplane, polite and professional, The food was tasty."
Cons: "Check in was not very efficient (took too long). No dedicated entertainment systems, and legspace was too cramped, even on an exit row."

Cons: "Only entertainment is from overhead screens. This is not because copa doesn’t offer these services it’s just an older plane that was used."

Pros: "Flight on time, crew was nice"
Cons: "The food in both ways was terrible, and the entertainment was poor"

Pros: "The food was ok"
Cons: "Part of the crew was a little rude, entertainment options were poor, the counter at Lima to check in the baggages opened late"
Pros: "No WiFi. Tiny TV screen every 3 rows and played a grow up movie. My 5 year old child had nothing to watch and no way to entertain him self. One of the diaper changing tables was broken."
Cons: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "If anyone reads these they should probably contact me."
Cons: "No entertainment system for Business Class Passengers"

Pros: "The crew was nice, and the flights was on time ,so easy to find the terminal"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortable... no personal TV... very tough if you travel with children"
Cons: "Due to circumstances beyond our control, we arrived at the Lima, Peru airport only a little over an hour before our flight. We immediately proceeded to look for the Copa Airlines check-in desk. We walked up and down the check-in area a couple of times, but couldn't find Copa anywhere. The monitor listing the departures had the counter numbers for Copa listed, but there was no one there. Eventually an airport employee told us where to find the Copa offices on the second floor. We arrived at the office 40 minutes before our scheduled departure. Someone in that office could have easily attended to our bags and walked us to our gate. Instead they fiddled with their computers trying to put us another flight. They left us standing there for over a half an hour with absolutely no explanation as to what was going on. Eventually someone came over and said we would have to call the operations center and rebook our flights at a cost of $1500 each. Why they would abandon their check-in desk an hour before the flight departs knowing that there were people on that flight that had not checked in, is a total mystery to me. That coupled with the fact that they could not have cared less about us making our flight makes me sick!! What a joke!! No one I know will ever ever fly Copa airlines again!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Over booked flight"
Cons: "Not gotten cancelled on August 18 and delayed for 24 hours with no compensation for hotel we had to get. Then would be nice to not get delayed 4 times on today’s flight arriving home at 2 in the morning on a day we HAVE to go to work because we already are in trouble for missing previous day."
Cons: "American Airlines in Lima refused to accept my bags 50 minutes prior to departure (not my fault, due to a delayed flight) and caused me all sorts of headaches and problems. I almost had to sleep in a hotel over night. I missed my flight because AA were idiots."
Cons: "I didn’t like the food, worse I’ Ever taste"
Pros: "Latam would not transfer 1 medium baggage from LATAM to Avianca at Lima"
Cons: "Kayak scheduled my flights too close together, with airlines that wouldn’t handle my checked baggage. When my first flight was late, I missed my connection and had to buy a new ticket, as the airline couldn’t or wouldn’t change my itinerary. As I was in a foreign country without a phone or computer and with very limited time to fix the problem, I just had to buy a new ticket."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "A little rain in Cusco delayed the flight by almost an hour. Just a little rain."
Cons: "longer hours due to the 2 stops"
Cons: "Avianca cancelled our original flight forcing us to leave a day early. Next they cancelled our return flight forcing us to come home a day early. Finally, when we arrived, they had oversold the flight and were short one seat and almost didn't get on at all. Will NEVER fly Avianca again."

Pros: "all the experience"
Cons: "I paid for an upgrade to Business and my seat would not recline. Spent the whole 6 hours in one position."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I STRONGLY dislike how the airline acts as if they are the immigration and they demanded that I buy a very expensive plane ticket to show that I would be leaving Argentina within 3 months. There are so many expats in Buenos Aires and they all buy tickets in Argentina to go to Uruguay within 3 months. Upon showing the immigration of Argentina my USA passport at the entry, they have NEVER asked me for any kind of proof that I would be leaving within 3 months. At first I started to purchase a ticket to Uruguay by boat and the attendant even asked me the website of the boat because she told me that these problems come up all the time for expats going to Argentina for longer than 3 months. You are ONLY AN AIRLINE. YOU ARE NOT THE IMMIGRATION OF ARGENTINA. Having this said, I never plan to fly Avianca again."
