Pros: "I was surprised and very disappointed to find out that last part of my business class ticket was economy.

Cons: "Some of the staff were so rude, specifically a guy was so rude and mean when a lady asked him for help to place his baggage on the compartment, he was so aggressive like mad because she asked for help and that kind of attitude feels so disappointed of them"
Pros: "Your flight was the most comfortable coach flight I have ever taken. No other airline I've taken for as long as I can remember has provided the leg room and comfort that your airline provides for coach."

Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."
Cons: "Were to plug a charger, pillows, tv screens"
Pros: "Crew did a great job."
Cons: "No entertainment. Copa app did not work on my phone."
Pros: "Crew were present"

Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "the crew was amazing. Seating not so comfortable"
Cons: "the flight was good. Entertainment was great"
Pros: "The food and entertaiment."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, no vegetarian options, no movies"
Pros: "Boarding was in Spanish - thankfully I recognized the number of our boarding group. Everything was average - what you’d expect on a normal flight. But for breakfast, one of the options was eggs. I expected something barely edible, but it was actually really tasty!"
Cons: "Boarding was all in Spanish. I recognized our group number though, so figured it out, but it’s always nice when it’s repeated in English."
Pros: "Service communication about delay and connecting flights"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Great flight. Decent sized seat. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the process was standard"
Cons: "For some reason both my friends and I felt it was a very uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Again food"
Pros: "The stewardess was very unprofessional and being racist"
Pros: "It was non stop"
Cons: "The plane was freezing and when I asked the attendant for a blanket she said they were all out"
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."
Pros: "Smooth flight, made up for lost time"
Cons: "Very unpleasant experience with crew generally. Very surprising, given previous experiences with Copa."
Pros: "The crew very nice . Flight right on time"
Cons: "The crew very friendly . But the seats sucks"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Separated us into two middle seats. The man behind me kept kicking me from under my seat. He was extremely rude."
Pros: "On time, clean, and non stop, the latter being the best! First flight was a newer plane, and appreciate the USB ports. Older plane on return flight, but got home safe and sound with a little extra time to spare. That's a good trip in my book."
Cons: "Nothing negative."
Cons: "No individual screen and no USB chargers. No snack or coffe before landing in an 5 and a half flight"
Pros: "Copa has a reputation for being the on-time airline in Central America, and so it was for all 5 of my flights with them this trip. Customer service on the phone was really great, too. They got things done, and done the first time."
Cons: "The in-flight TV screens are old-school and not very good."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was late. They didn't have personal tvs and the headphone jack is didn't work for it anyway. Food was horrible. Took wayyy too long to get baggage."
Cons: "I asked for the temp to be adjusted, but wasn't able to get them to fix much. It was easily 80 degrees."
Pros: "IT WAS TWO HOURS BEHIND SCHEDULE"
Cons: "i have to wait in the Airport six hours total in Panama"
Cons: "copa airlines changed the timeline of my ticket from 10 hours to 22 hours duration one month before my flight back. When I landed in Panama there were no United representatives to issue me my boarding pass. For the next 14 hours I went up and down the airport to find help. When I finally went to the designated gate the Hnited representative told me this miscommunication happens all the time between Copa and United and there is nothing she can do. This is bad business and the customers have to suffer the consequences. I won't use this flight route again."
Pros: "Food was decent. All Crew very helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wished the longer flight had personalized entertainment in each seat instead of the shorter flight. I could have watched two movies on the longer flight instead of just one."
Pros: "Most of my flight experience was great."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Maybe a lil more movies"
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "flights were fairly on time"
Cons: "No vegetarian food options"
Pros: "Considering their is no water for purchase after security the airline should offer much more water during the flight. I was only offered a drink once during a 5+ hour flight. I had to ask for additional water later on."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."
Cons: "The headset didn't work well."
Pros: "Comfortable leg room Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."
Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."
Pros: "The crew were nice and they had good meal servir."
Cons: "We were in the last row which wasn't comfortable. The flight departed late, arrived late, and it took almost an hour for the bags to come out. The entertainment was also very poor."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food was bad and no entertainment"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "All of my grievances regard the Panama staff at the airport and on the plane, the staff and services at O'Hare were top notch. Customs was extremely fast and efficient and everyone was friendly and did their jobs well. As far as the Panama airlines go, the food was okay, nothing special but not disgusting, and not all the flight attendants were unpleasant."
Cons: "The worst thing that happened was mean spirited security guards at the airport did a security check before allowing us to get to our gate. They forced us to dispose of a bottle of water that we had bought at that very airport. We were then quarantined into a waiting area with no seating and no access to other water, bathroom or food. Then on the plan we were offered beverages twice, so I was only able to get about six swallows of water from Panama to Chicago. Dehydration makes a plane ride a lot less healthy and comfortable. The staff was mostly unpleasant, the seats were really small and uncomfortable (more so than any other airplanes I've been aboard), and for some reasons they kept turning the main lights on and off, allowing us to sleep and then waking us all up for no good reason. Unbelievable."
Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."
Pros: "I liked absolutly nothing!"
Cons: "I was not even allowed to board the flight because of not having my yellow fever vaccine document. The reps were rude to me, and were not the least bit helpful. I left the Galapagos a day earlier than scheduled to make this flight. I wish I had never booked this flight, it does not seem like I will even be reimbursed for it. I asked them to give me a document or anything as proof that I was denied on flight because my credit card company requested it, but they rudely refused."
Cons: "Being an international flight of 5+ hours long, they only transmitted 1 movie."
Pros: "Don't you know this information already?"
Pros: "Great customer service, great flight attendants, great everything!!!! Most of all no terbulance"
Cons: "I wish I would of sat next to my wife."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was very nice."
Cons: "The staff at the Panama city airport while boarding were jerks. A couple of snobby women with attitude problems. Also there was basically no entertainment because it was impossible to see those little tv screens and even if yiu could see, you have to crane your neck. Also the lighting in this airplane was so horrid it was unbearable. Who chooses blue tinted lights? It's like flying in an industrial garage for 5 hours."
Pros: "landed safely. no f trump supporters yelling!"
Cons: "layover"
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Cons: "Almost everything. This airline charges normal fees and offers low cost service. Very bad"
Cons: "The food ."
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "The stewards were rude and they overbooked the flight. These arrived at the gate at 6:15 and were told we could not board our plane which was to take off at 7:30. Absolute nonsense."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Organization, information and communication"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "The snack was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over one hour and a half and nobody could tell us why"
Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"
Pros: "Plane was clean, videos worked well. Cabin attendants were gracious and spoke excellent English. Food was good."
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Pros: "The whole flight went smoothly and I really have no complaints about the flight itself."
Cons: "When I arrived, my luggage did not make the connecting flight. It was tracked down and hopefully will make it to me soon but you can see how it’s inconvenient. The first leg of my flight was operated by Wamos, though it was a LATAM flight. I know that this is something that happens often for all sorts of reasons, however I can’t help but think it had something to do with the transition of my luggage from one flight to the next. My flights home are similar ( One leg of it being operated by another airline) and needless to say I’m a bit nervous about that."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fly us never proactively contacted us about the LATAM flight change so we missed this flight. LATAM stepped up and paid for another two flights to get us back to Austin. No thanks to Flyus, whom we will never book with again. Their customer support was a joke! Jeff"
Cons: "They lost my bag and I had to wait a full day to get it back."
Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "Leg room was cramped"
Pros: "Good seats and service"
Cons: "Taste of new menu"
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized and not on time. My seat assignment was changed upon boarding the plane. They had assigned 3 people to my seat which was an isle seat I had chosen upon purchasing my ticket 5 months prior. I was changed to a middle seat. They had an extra (makeshift) security check point on the actual boarding ramp. They made everyone open their carry-on bags and suitcases on folding tables just before entering the plane. They also took beverages bought at the gift shops, right before getting on the plane which was unusual. Overall ground crew was not very customer service oriented. In flight crew was better."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "I left a scarf on the plain when we landed in NY. And a lamd team member, Kelly, went out of her way to get it back for me right at the airport, and I did!!!! So helpful and efficient and curtious!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was a 1hour delay leaving Chile, but they made up some time in the air."
Pros: "It was special. Like a special limo"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It actually was all good"
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices, the best airline food I've ever had, attentive service, lots of amenities, new and modern plane"
Pros: "I loved the whole trip"
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints!!"
Pros: "My first flight on LATAM and very impressed. Fast boarding, lots of help for an English speaking passenger in Chile, newer plane, clean, and efficient flight attendants. I'll be back!"
Pros: "Plane on time performance"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "LAN moved to departure gate five minutes before scheduled Board Time from downstairs shuttle bus to plane, to a walk on gate to plane."
Cons: "Original schedule pulled in one day due to Hurricane Irma cancellation/rebook from MIA to SCL. LAN wanted $280US to change ticket. I paid $160US for ticket originally. No sympathy from LAN for hurricane impacted travelors. Extremely poor customer relations!!"
Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"
Pros: "Landing was perfect!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. The flight was smooth and quiet."
Cons: "The cabin has garbage and it was dirty."
Cons: "The space"

Pros: "Kindness of the crew"
Cons: "Seat space,"
Pros: "clean and new plane"
Cons: "delayed flight made me lose a day. My luggage got lost"
Pros: "todo muy bien"
Pros: "The steward/ stewardesses always great."
Cons: "Tasteless food except for the desserts."
Pros: "Flying on a Boing 787 is wonderful. The overall service from Latam is top quality; the crew was welcoming and very attentive. Food could be improved, specially offering vegetarian alternative for all of the food services. The movie selection could be improved (in variety and vintage). Music selection was very good for my taste."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seats on line in advance, which created a stressful situation when at check-in we found that my wife and I were not seated together. Fortunately for the first leg of the trip (Santiago-Lima) there was an empty seat by her and I took it; and for the second leg (Lima-Los Angeles) the passenger next to her was upgraded on the last minute and left his seat for me. Latam has great service, but must let customers choose their seats or guarantee assigning adjacent seats to passengers traveling together, The process for servicing of the plane during the stop-over in Lima could be improved. I know it is hard to do minor cleaning, tidy-up, and replacement of pillows & blankets while many passengers remain on board, but at least there should be an announcement describing what the passengers are to expect during the stop-over."
Pros: "Once again, I was impressed with the food and the service. The flight crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't have audio for one of the movies so I had to use closed caption to read what the characters were saying. I had some issues trying to get the movie to play because the screen froze for a moment."
Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
Pros: "Staff was nice but still in an airplane not moving"
Cons: "Waiting and no contact as no cell phone or internet conection to inform hotel you are not going to arrive in time to use their room"
Cons: "To short connection"
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "Good food and staff"
Cons: "Evething was good"
Pros: "The movie choices are endless!"
Cons: "I wish I was told about the Lan app to download before we took off"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Limited alcohol"
Pros: "The seat was super confortable"
Cons: "Seat confort is bad, specially for tall travelers."
Cons: ":)"
Pros: "They are so friendly"
Cons: "The restroom"
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Plane arrived earlier then expected. Waited for about 35 minutes before exiting the plane."
Cons: "Schedules, schedules, schedules. What is the point of having them if they are not followed. People plan around schedules, while it is always good to on a few minutes earlier, what is the point if one is trapped inside the plane. I have a returned ticket, hope the service will improve."
Cons: "This flight had hidden bag fees. Also, it took over an hours for bags to come out the carrousel."
Cons: "Price is OK"
Cons: "Everything is perfect Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was polite and welcoming. Seats were good"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Had a 2 hour delay"
Cons: "We arrived to the airport over two hours before our departure time. We waited in line for over an hour to check our bags and get our boarding passes. When we checked our bags, we were told to hurry as our flight was boarding. We rushed through the airport to get in line to board the plane. When we got to the line to board the plane, we waited another hour before we were told to get on a bus to take us to our plane. Our plan left 45 minutes later than expected, but the airport never communicated any details about a delay. We rushed to wait in line instead of having time to get things at the airport or sit."
Pros: "Staff on board was great, super friendly & attentive!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes & there was no mention of it from the crew. They were acting as if there was nothing going on and no reason for the delay. No actions were taken to compensate for the delayed flight."
Cons: "The flight was oversold and my daughter and I couldn't check in online and or seats were given away. We were sent to a hotel far from the airport."
Pros: "No tanta supervisión en el peso de maletas."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "*Food/Beverages provided *Movie/Show selection"
Cons: "*Person in front of me was reclining their seat way too far. I think flight attendants need to pay attention to this more and prevent other passengers from being an inconvenience. *Too many people using the bathroom at once. Luckily I was able to hold it in. Maybe allowing us passengers to use the bathroom on the other side of the plane might be a good idea."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I buy a flight ahead of time so I can be back home on time to work, I get it delays can happen, there was already a delay to start off well, turns out the flight is OVERBOOKED & even tho I arrived 3 hours earlier prior my flight I had to wait 9+ hours for another flight. If you don’t have enough seating available don’t sell a ticket that you know doesn’t exist. It’s not the first time it happens with Aeromexico, their airline is HORRIBLE & I didn’t expect with my first experience with Kayak to be just as bad. Never buying a flight through this website ever again nor am I planning to fly with Aeromexico."
Pros: "I appreciate the entertainment and overall comfort of Aeromexico. The flight itself was decent and got me home."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate that my flight time changed and I wasn't notified until well after the fact. Aeromexico at Benito Juarez didn't seem to know what was happening either. I didn't know which gate was flight was leaving from until after boarding the scheduled boarding time. When family in the States tried to get updates about the delays, the customer service rep gave incorrect information. I'm not sure that I'll be flying Aeromexico again."
Pros: "It wasn’t a full flight"
Cons: "The flight attendants were too loud and not as attentive"
Cons: "After being in the airport for over four hours waiting for the flight to depart, I was not allowed to board the plane because the airline had somehow given my seat to another passenger, even though I was sitting right in front of them. I have never experienced such a ridiculous situation. What is worse, the airline was completely obsolete in helping me resolve the issue."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They charge for luggage"
Cons: "My luggage was ripped with a box cutter or blade."
Pros: "I enjoyed being able to watch a movie on the plane. Definitely makes flying a little better!"
Cons: "We flew with AeroMexico and the customer service is horrible! No one informed us that the plane was delayed and then we heard staff talk badly about us and other customers because we asked that they give us more information. They really need to train their staff again, or replace them!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Servíces"
Pros: "I was able to get home."
Cons: "Check-in at GDL airport is completely insane! They should have a line for those who have already pre-checked themselves and just need to drop off their luggage."
Cons: "Did I have to pay for my baggage"
Cons: "Everything!!!! Í Will never fly with you again"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Everyone very nice people"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Cancelled my fight 2 times"
Cons: "Don't respect my time"
Cons: "Everytime we fly with Aeromexico our luggage is misplaced. This is the third time our luggage has been lost or forgotten. When asked for assistance not one flight member is there to help, and we end up waiting hours for assistance."
Cons: "On June 29 Aeromexico Flight 2683 arrived in Mexico City airspace and the Captain informed the passengers that the plane would have to refuel in Alcapulco due to inclement weather in Mexico City. The website https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/mexico/mexico-city/historic reports NO inclement weather on that date or at the time that AM 2683 was to land. I observed partly cloudy skies from my window seat as well. The ground crew in Alcapulco was unprepared for AM2683 and the fueling was delayed. After doing so, AM 2683 landed AFTER my connecting flight AM 684 was scheduled to depart at 1:05 AM on June 30. A female connection agent met me at the baggage claim and informed me that that AM 684 had not been held and had departed. The female agent was unhelpful, dismissive and rude. In fact, she had taken a personal cell phone call at the connections desk prior to assisting passengers of AM 2683 which lasted many minutes. She escorted us to the Aeromexico counter where I waited 30 or more minutes to speak to a representative. The representative at the Aeromexico counter informed me that there were NO flights to Quito until 1:05 AM on July 1. I asked if she could book me on another airline and she informed me that because the delay was weather related Aeromexico had no obligation to accomodate me. She booked me on AM684 for July 1. I asked where I was to wait for the next 24 hours and she said Aeromexico had no obligation to pay for lodgings. She gave me food vouchers for the airport. I immediately logged onto Travelocity.com and found a Copa Airlines flight to Quito leaving that afternoon which was in fact OPERATED BY AEROMEXICO! I booked that ticket myself and waited in the Mexico City Airport for 14 hours. What would have taken 10 hours took me 22."
Pros: "I liked the meal and courteous attendants, however getting served at 3am was a little strange."
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for 90 minutes waiting for 20 passengers from another flight. That's too long... we missed our bus in Chicago because of it. My seat was also broken and wouldn't lean back, making for a long, sleepless night."
Pros: "Nothing good to write"
Cons: "Total discrimination"
Cons: "My fligth was dilay for 2 hours and i got charge a baggeg on a international fligth"
Pros: "Free light meal, drinks, and entertainment."
Cons: "My seat was moved even though i had paid extra for my seat."
Cons: "The lady at Aeromexico was rude and yawned in my face twice. she charged me for my luggage twice and told me to deal with it once I get home"
Cons: "Old plane, no movie played and there was no food served even though it said there was a meal included with the flight"
Cons: "Had trouble getting movies in English"
Pros: "Movies snacks coke very friendly"
Cons: "The reservation people at Aeromexico messed up my flight and kept trying to sell me more flights instead of resolving the issue."
Cons: "I am not sure if it's something new that you guys changed but on my way back from Guadalajara to Chicago they charged me for my luggage, but when I flew frome chicago to guadalajara they didn't charge me I don't know if it was something that change that I wasn't notified or what but I don't think that was fair that I had to pay without me being notified that there was a change if there was one , other than that everything else went great"
Pros: "First time flying Aeromexico. I've flown servers airlines in Latin America and this ranks among the best. Will likely fly with them again."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, food was adequate. Smooth flight!"
Cons: "The plane was old and extremely filthy. In flight entertainment was lacking, given the flight was over 3 hours I had expected more options."
Pros: "Loved the movie selections."
Pros: "Service, media access. Crew was very kind and friendly. Boarding was well organized by row number."
Cons: "It was a bit too hot during the flight even though I used the overhead fan. Other than that, it was a pleasant ride. Thank you!"
Cons: "The crew was so unpolite they did not let me board because apparently i was late and instead of helping me connect with another flight they told me they could not do anything...the crew at the checking was so rude...i missed my flight I will never use this airline again Delta was much better"
Pros: "Most of the Staff was friendly"
Cons: "No wifi, some staff were oblivious of how often they hit you when walking through the plane disturbing you during the flight. I started to think it was intensional. But the other staff were wonderful."
Pros: "We've been flying with Aeromexico most of the time because of their customer service. They're professional, and with a smile. We'd never experience any issues or delays. We also appreciate the fact that we get food which is something you don't get with other airlines."
