Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Horrible communication during flight delays and pilot timing out. Sat at the gate for hours with no communication."
Pros: "Simple and easy flight, boarding on and off no big deal. Using your phone as a boarding pass is a great plus. Skipped the check-in process and breezed through security."
Cons: "Person I was seated next to, older women was really fidgeting and bumping me through the flight."
Cons: "JetBlue is amazing and my favorite airlines for domestic travel."
Cons: "Evetying was excelent"
Cons: "We waited at least 8 hours in the delay and I wasn’t texted early enough to plan ahead. We waited in the airport and then we waited on the turnpike before take-off."
Pros: "The movies were okay. The crew was accommodating."
Cons: "We spent 45 minutes on the tarmac, enough time to watch the baggage personnel throw our bags into his trolley with zero reason for him to do so. If you pack anything fragile... good luck."
Pros: "Easy boarding and flight"
Cons: "There’s nothing special about jet blue anymore."
Pros: "LOTS OF LEGROOM"
Cons: "They have a habit of not being ontime"
Cons: "Departure was delayed, then it made an unscheduled stop in Jamaica for refueling! A 3 hour flight ended up taking 7 hours. On top of that the plane did not have a way to recharge a cell phone. The entertainment choices as well as the tv screen were poor and then there was no way to turn off the screen."
Pros: "I thought mostly everything was great. I haven't flown in awhile and expected much worse."
Cons: "WiFi dropped out pretty shortly after takeoff stayed out for the entire flight duration."
Cons: "2 hr delay. Poor ventilation"
Cons: "We are still on the plane. Can’t get off because there is lightning in the area. Ridiculous. It is raining lightly. I would really like to get off the plane"
Pros: "We were very happy with practically everything with our first impression of this airline as well as the customer service."
Cons: "We had to pay a little bit of money to upgrade our flight and now we found out that if we apply for the one credit card of theirs the fee would be more then refunded over the year."
Cons: "I have a problem with my ears, and asked the crew for nozzle drops, they don’t have"
Cons: "Flight over 3 hours late leaving. Flight attendants rude, and nothing comped for drinks or food to make up for it. Had to circle for 45 min due to weather. Sat on tarmac 30 mijn on other end."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. Engine as no flight permission problems. My seat was hard."
Pros: "Having a tv"
Cons: "Sound jack not working properly , older plane no amenities"
Pros: "The crew could not have been more helpful and pleasant making the delay bearable as they were overtly communicative w all via text, email, and in person keeping is updated! HIGHLT RECOMMEND and will definitely be flying again. :)"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. On time, all good things."
Cons: "An individual who was very overweight sat next to me and took up half of my seat as well. I understand we all deserv to ride comfortably and my intent is not to shame them. That said, if someone can’t put the armrest down I think the airline should require them to purchase both seats as it’s very uncomfortable to be in the position of having no seat for the entire ride. I’m an average sized person so it was a challenge but even tiny people deserve the full seat they purchased. There really should be a rule or something."
Cons: "Six hours late, then there wasn’t enough fuel and had to wait for paperwork multiple times. Hands down the worst experience I have ever had. I will not be flying JetBlue again."
Cons: "Delay and 4 hours in the craft upon arrival to Chicago"
Cons: "Almost a 9 hour ordeal. 4 hour delay because of weather for flight because one crew that was supposed to take our flight had “timed out.” Didn’t take off til after 1am. Finally landed and sat on plane because a plane at our gate was “disabled.” It’s 4:33am, I’ve been off the plane for half an hour, no baggage coming out of the carousel yet and no sign of this absolutely horrific experience ending anytime soon."
Pros: "Loved all the available dedicated JetBlue staff available to answer questions. Have not flown JetBlue often but heard many great things."
Cons: "Weather delay which is out of JetBlue’s control but once we landed (6 hours later) we sat on the runway for an additional hour because our gate had a disable airplane occupying it. I think JetBlue could have done a better job ensuring a back up gate was available or giving their passenger updates on the situation."
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t working, they constantly run out of fresh food. It has happened several times in different flights. Luggage delivered late. Too long of a wait in Fort Lauderdale"
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "Delay and the space between seats"
Cons: "I never got the opportunity to fly because I was stuck in unusual traffic in a tunnel for over an hour just minutes from the Boston airport. I was later told there was a fire. I called the 1-800-JETBLUE number and I explained that the situation. The agent said that there would be a $75 change fee and at 4:47 pm there were no more flights out that night and that I would also be charged the fare differential the following day. I quickly went on line and found a deep discounted fare on United for $56! When I got to the airport there were several other people with the same situation. Not a enough agents on staff and no concern that I might miss my new flight on United. Thank Gid I acted fast and got another flight that evening or I would have needed to spend the night in the airport like a woman and her mother traveling to San Jose! Need more professionalism !"
Pros: "JetBlue has great staffdelayed by an hour"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour for a 2 hour flight!"
Cons: "Another plane mechanical issue causing another delay of over 2 hours."
Cons: "Two hours later leaving JFK"
Cons: "It was too cold inside."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The seat in hard."
Pros: "No food for 11:30 flight - even though it was lunch time. snacks are "fair" at best Ontime seats and space are fine"
Cons: "very limited TV and movies ... other airlines are better ..."
Cons: "Late flight delayed"
Pros: "Most of the basics were good."
Cons: "The flight was substantially delayed and when we got to Chicago we had to wait a long time for a gate agent so that we could deplane because only one gate agent was working at that hour (10:20 p.m.). Also, the flight delay notifications came after I was close to the airport and at the airport--earlier notifications (if possible) would help. The tv/movie portion of the entertainment was not working at all."
Pros: "Changed to 3 hour earlier flight WITHOUT extra "change fee". It was FREE !! Enjoyed in flight TV with FREE drinks and snacks. As United goes backwards in customer service and costs, JetBlue leaps forward. Good work JetBlue."
Cons: "More options in snack boxes and/or food items"
Cons: "A total mess and short of information"
Pros: "More legroom, free wifi, free entertainment choices, unlimited drinks & snacks, on-time and efficient"
Cons: "1) Boarding process was not clear on the ticket or anywhere (really not a big deal). 2) When reading about perks and restrictions after we bought tickets, the company mentions certain "classes" of tickets..i.e. "Blue", "Blue Plus" and "Blue Flex" but since I had already bought our tickets, I had no idea which type of fare we bought, since Jet Blue does not provide that information on your ticket information once purchased."
Pros: "Boarding is much more efficient than usual airline classist hierarchy."
Cons: "No USB ir AC outlets. Tiny screens and no choice on movies"
Pros: "Solid crew, comfortable flight, free tv and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "A few factors led to a 6 hour delay. Not necessarily Jet Blue's fault but it was certainly a frustrating day of travel"
Pros: "The plane had 2 wings"
Cons: "Staff is rude. Customer Service couldn't possibly be worst. All their food has meat in it. Staff is slow and incompetent. Never had a more dreadful experience with an airline. TAP IS THE WORST AIRLINE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED, and I fly 2 times a month."
Pros: "Everything Entertainment Early landing"
Pros: "Jetblue left on time from JFK"
Pros: "The on flight tv was down so I couldn't listen to music like I nearly always do on my flights."
Cons: "I didn't like waiting on the tarmac after we landed for what seemed like 25 minutes or so"
Cons: "International fly without food, what a shame!!"
Pros: "The take off into the air was calm and not frightening."
Cons: "The flight we had scheduled with them was canceled and there was no email or form of communication sent to tell us before arriving to the airport. We found out while attempting to "check in." They were hesitant in providing food vouchers for us when our original flight that was supposed to leave early in the morning (6:30am), now left at (5:59pm)."
Cons: "Extremely rude female flight attendant who cut me off & walked before I could finish my question regarding a text message about a flight delay prior to the announcement by the pilot."
Pros: "When I sat into my comfortable seat with its amazing leg room, I asked the woman next to me if she had flown Jet Blue previously. She replied that it is now her favorite airline. At the end of the trip I agreed that it is a distinctly different and great airline. My complaint is that I have to travel from NE Wisconsin to Chicago in order to use Jet Blue. When are you coming to MKE? The way the food and drink orders were handled worked well, and the selections were amazing! Needless to say, the media offered was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew did a good job, but one of the female staff seemed stressed. I hope she was able to get some relief and rest."
Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Got here early!"
Cons: "My first flight (leaving very early in the morning from Burlington VT was delayed several hours because a ground crew member forgot to put the heater on the plane the night before. Because of this delay I missed my connection and instead of arriving in San Fran at 10am, I arrived at 6pm and missed the whole first day of my trip and was exhausted cause I got up at 3am to get to the airport to a frozen plane that was not ready to fly for a few hours during which I could’ve stayed in bed."
Cons: "Had to check my bag yet others brought on two bin sized pieces. Had to get seat assignment at the gate and rep was rather abrupt with instructions. Smell of fuel in the cabin. In last row which was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Confort was minor but ok"
Cons: "The flight was not on time. The staff broke my carry-on zip for expansion and refuse to admit it was a suitcase damage which need to be repair. They said put a belt around it to use it !!!! It is a 1 year new piece of luggage from Delsey which is a very good quality brand and expensive!!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew and all folks. I had not flown Delta for a while. Based on this flight, I’ll put Delta as a first option in future plans."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "More food."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Cons: "Crew unfriendly."
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience. We were not offered a choice of seats when we checked in and had to wait at the gat"

Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "Good snack selection. Crew was personable."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats on final leg did not appear to be different than main cabin"
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Pros: "Typical Delta efficiency and comfort."
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "2: 1/2 delay"
Cons: "They put us on the plane after waiting 11/2 hours, we all had to deplane as the mechanical problems were not done correctly. We waited another hour to correct before leaving. The gate agent was able to get me on a later connecting flight to Charleston. That was a positive."
Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delta really struggles with trying to get everyone in the plane in an orderly fashion. Window seats must climb over all of the aisle passengers that got on before."
Cons: "We landed hours late and sat on runway for 1 hour. On top of that this plane was our 3rd equipment change."
Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, seat assignment at gate, was very anxiety provoking. I was concerned would not get on flight."
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Cons: "The leg room is ridiculously small."
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Cons: "it stink inside the plane, the seats in front of us were dirty and smelled bad!"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed, when it was time to board and take off, this was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Delayed flight. However, I know this sometimes out ot the airlines control."
Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."
Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Boarding process was horribly handled. Food was inadequate. Stewardess was saccharine. Bathroom door didn’t shut completely. I was told this wasn’t an international flight and therefore no free alcohol. Aero Mexico flight to Mexico City had much better food, free alcohol and more attentive service personnel. Also delays because of equipment problems."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "Trash onboard from previous flight and flight attendants texting during beverage service and seemed annoyed they were having to hand out drinks and crackers. I don’t enjoy feeling like a nuisance when I’ve paid $250 for the flight. FREE WiFi didn’t work. I always avoid Delta when possible."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Pros: "All that one would want."
Pros: "Cabin service was coffee or water. Short flight tome of 45 minuted."
Cons: "Only offered cookies...would have liked nuts."
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Cons: "Smooth and easy"
Cons: "The temperature in the plane from Rhineland to Minneapolis and to San Jose was hot"
Pros: "Liked the selection of channels and movies."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats were mostly comfortable and having the movies on the headrest is a wonderful idea!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and some of us had to check our bags but atleast it was free of charge. They should work on that."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Pros: "The crew was really fantastic the service was very good."
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Pros: "Copa messed up the first flight on 2nd of august for me by overbooking. And today they had me wait till everyone boarded because they made some sort of mistake and couldnt verify online or web checkin"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "All is ok"
Pros: "see previous comments"
Pros: "Nothing, rude and not caring for their customers. My flight from dtw to Chicago was canceled and I was never informed. I lost 1 day of my trip and a wedding. Worst airline."
Cons: "Notify flight cancellation, rebook the flight with another airline, and offer a compensation since we missed a wedding and that was the whole reason why we were going to Ecuador. Worst costumer service ever."
Pros: "the meal was nice."
Cons: "that I was crammed into a seat. I was seated in the back row and the person in front of me leaned their seat all the way back and because of my height I was literally stuck. Flight attendants wold roll eyes if I didnt understand their spanish immediately or spoke english to them."
Pros: "The breakfast was good, warm, fruits were fresh."
Pros: "Always is on time"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Plane too full. Again, without the individual screens, you didn't have a choice on what to watch on a very very long flight"
Cons: "En Panamá muy mala la atención y muy despotas"
Pros: "Such delay in perfect weather condition and no mechanical problem .... is ridiculous. A crew change should be planned for and should not cause a delay."
Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was flawless. Pleasant staff & comfortable seats... LOVED the free movies, audio selection, food, beverages, etc."
Cons: "1. would not allow duty-free purchases with under 60 minute boarding time. 2. required TSA check & disposal of all beverages before entering the area to wait for the plane - a 30 minute wait in the hallway!"
Pros: "excelente servicio y puntualidad"
Pros: "We made it on time"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the crew can offer water more often"
Pros: "The service, the food, the Copa Club"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Your call center, and your offices are so seriously deficient. I as assured by agent that I was assigned seats 5. They lie to your face. The problems are then at the airport."
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: "Nothing. This airline is trying to appear as a big, powerful company. I choose them because there was direct flight from Chicago to Panama City. Big mistake. Take any American or European Airline. Worst experience ever!"
Cons: "Flights not on time, always late, lying employees and crew. They show a flight to Boston signs on the flight to Chicago, no airconditioning working. Bunch of idiots and incopetent people playing airline with passagers lifes. Never use them, you will thank for this advise someday."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and food was good."
Cons: "Someone stole my hat from the airline counter and no one could help track down who. I kept getting the run around. Flights were delayed and there was a lot of chaos albeit it might not have been the fault of the airline."
Pros: "Food was okay and flight was comfortable enough to sleep through."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for ages."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for an unusually long amount of time."
Pros: "Food, attention, kindness"
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."
Cons: "i travel with copa every year, and for the last 2 years i have experienced problems with them. specially with the reservation and the luggage. I like to buy my ticket 3 to 4 to months ahead so i can reserve my seats in the first rows. When it is the time to do the web check in, they change my assign seats and separates us in different seats back in the airplane."
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: "Nothing. Everything was a bad costumer service."
Cons: "I missed my flight because in the town I live , there was a landslide and rocks fall on the road. And it was impossible to get out of the town and I didn't find any help for refunding or changing the dates of my flight. Really bad costumer service, I'm still waiting for a reply of the emails I sent to vayama. Imposible to comunicar with it by phone with them and with the kayak office in Colombia."
Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."
Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."
Pros: "Los representante son despotas y coperan en las necesidades que se le presentan a uno y y son exagerados para cobrar por las maletas"
Pros: "Boarding area at Medellin Airport is clean, roomy, comfortable, modern and bright. Boarding is very orderly. Flights are always on time with Copa, which makes them a very reliable carrier. Planes are modern, clean and well maintained. Copa offers free headphones, meal and drinks, which is very rare on short flights."
Cons: "Entertainment options on Copa planes are very limited, but understandable on such a short flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Helpful."
Cons: "Media offering in the plane was somehow limited."
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "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: "Flight includes meal, seats have USB charge ports."
Pros: "The service by the crew in providing the food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "Being an international flight of 5+ hours long, they only transmitted 1 movie."
Pros: "The crew were very kind and attentive."
Pros: "Don't you know this information already?"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "First two landings were hard hitting to the ground. Kinda scary."
Pros: "My flight from mde Pty jfk was excellent, on the first leg we have a medical emergency, flight attendants were really calm and on a 55 minute flight they provide us with a full service and help the passenger in need, on the second meg, the service was ojtstanding, Copa is and will be one of the top choices to go home."
Pros: "It's the best airlines customer service , good price ,"
Pros: "I liked being able to choose my own seat, and the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I'd rather have snacks than the weird beef and rice. As an aside, either the speaker in my arm didn't work or my headphones didn't work."
Cons: "Crew served drinks immediately after the captain told everyone to fasten seat belts for turbulence. Maybe try meeting industry safety standards next time."
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: "Need to add inseat entertainment for all flights."
Pros: "Meal was OK"
Cons: "Boarding announcement only in Spanish and without PA. Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "It's shocking and disappointing that the plane was completely full. Also, the boarding process was really complicated and confusing."
Cons: "Airline too busy ?we lost are 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."
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
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: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "very uncomfortable and tight seating. Almost impossible to eat with a passenger sitting next to you. No salt, pepper or butter with food. Dried out tasteless, inedible bun served with meal. Cabin crew a little indifferent."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Food mediocre."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Every AM flight I've taken has taken off and landed with delay. We sit on tarmac or stand at the gate with no announcements from crew, captain, or gate attendants. Rude and inattentive attendants (asked three times for Screen to be refreshed as it didn't work) and each time request ignored. Inedible food, old planes. Yuck."
Cons: "Online check I was a waste of time- tried 10x and failed called the airline and "customer service' was clueless and contradicted herself. The flight itself was well into the 90 degree range. My family's shirts were soaked with sweat. Eggs were gross. And this was $500/tix for coach. I would rather fly Sprirt or a vlaue line than this."
Cons: "Because They Sold My Tickets. Now I'm In The Airport Waiting For 8:17pm Flight"
Cons: "They had a problem with media system, so this way we cannot see any movies"

Cons: "We fly in 777 plane, but the crew member already occupied all of my overhead baggage space. I need to move two seat back for my bag. I am already the first passenger on board of the plane. That also cost the other passenger think I occupied their baggage space and be not too friendly with me during the trip. The notice board in the airport is confuse, we know the gate and the depart time, but no one show up until 120 min before the plane depart. And finally the plane delay and no information show the plane will delay for how long. Bad information in the counter My handle of the sit is broken I have photo to proof if you would need it, I save it with me. The lighting system in the plane is very stupid or may be the crew don't know how to operate, every time they just turn on all the light no matter we are sleep or not! This is a red eye flight passenger should have a choice to not get disturb, when the light on I need to turn it off every time! And the next passenger don't really know how to turn the light off that always on during the flight! Super bad flying experience. Not comfortable at all. Can't sleep much!"
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."

I was not allowed to bring on an extra package I had with me (pre paid) and was asked to take the package to TSA for approval. TSA approved it but the ticket agent still did not allow me to take it on, now I'm out $45. Also they made me check my carry on because it was slightly larger than the recommended size, even though it fits in their recommend size criteria."

The situation was critical and out of my hands. It's unfortunate that I lost the flight and 3 Almost $300. It so sad that no one could help me with this unexpected situation."
Cons: "No me gusto que no hubo orden al momento de abordar en la sala A. y salir acminando como otras aerolineas baratas y mediocres de Mexico. Una de las crew fue muy ruda y de mal humor todo el tiempo."

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."

When I questioned the lady at check-in why I was being charged for extra baggage and I did not have extra, she said those were the rules and either I paid or I could not check my bag in, then showed her proof that I had purchased my baggage option online and she stated they don't work with the online policies. That she didn't know why I had purchased my bagged fee online, and still charged me extra. I will NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN!!! She did not even allow me to speak to a manager, she said there was no one above her. Extremely RUDE!!"

Cons: "At check in, they had me stand in the same line three separate times. Aeromexico personnel were very rude and even threatened me that I would not be able to fly.

Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."

Cons: "I did not like that my original flight was flat out cancelled. It made for a stressful trip."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "There was water dripping from the vents. When I tried to inform the flight attendant, she shut me down so fast I couldn't believe it. All she had to do was reassure me that it wasn't a safety issue. Her attitude was like she was tired of telling passengers that it was perfectly normal. Very unprofessional!"
Cons: "Allergic to cat/dog dander. Had dog with no kennel in window seat of my row. I was on aisle seat. As we all got up to let the owner go to the bathroom a dog followed walking on my seat. For the last hour and a half of the flight the dog Sat on the owners lap. My allergies and asthma begin to flare up prior to landing . Not a pleasant flight ."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, there is nothing to rate except the inconvenience it caused me and my fiancee who were traveling back home for a business meeting."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."
Pros: "Individual entertainment. Wowww!"

Pros: "ON TIME!!!!! Nice folks, smooth and safe."
Cons: "Got through the extensive security lines to USA one hour before scheduled departure and looked at the screen which said 'final boarding' which was not true and made us panic a bit, running for the gate. It did board and leave on time but not an hour early. This flight was night and day different than our ORD to Dublin flight of 5.12.17 which was 5 hours delayed and do stressful."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant, boarding efficient."
Cons: "Food was very mediocre but nothing new in air travel. The biggest complaint is that there was no individual light available for each person to sue to read. On a transatlantic flight of 10+ hours that is not overnight, it is a bit much to expect customers to fill that much time if one cannot read because the lights aren't working. The flight attendant said it was a very old plane as the reason why, not exactly what one wants to hear. Also, the plane was different than the one I prepaid my seats for, thus the money I spent on bulkhead seats was wasted as we just got two normal seats. Not a good experience."
Pros: "wifi was great"
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Pros: "Awesome crew. Comfortable seats. Great entertainment options. Good food."
Pros: "Nice crew. Chairs were comfortable."

Pros: "One of the crew members, Walt, was amazing."
Cons: "Everything else was a NIGHTMARE. We bought our tickets in Nov. I paid for an upgrade and assigned seats in FEBRUARY. We flew May 13. Not only did they RESELL and REASSIGN our seats to someone else -- we could not get a refund for the upgrade we paid for. To add insult to injury, the only seats they could give us were in the back of the plane next to the toilet. Having heard so many similar nightmare stories about American Air I can say I will never ever fly American Air again. We now have to spend our firrst few days home from vacation disputing that charge, writing letters and making calls to get that damn refund. I will be sharing my discontent far and wide. Whoever at corporate thinks it's best practice to sell and sell and sell seats and live with the aggravation of the customers has an upside down notion of how to run a successful business. NIGHTMARE."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."

Pros: "My flight was very short. It was a straight flight and there was no turbulence. Flight pulled off when it was supposed and early landing."
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"
Pros: "The new Dreamliner was amazing. However my great experience was also directly a result of the unfilled nature of the plane. This gave so much room to the passengers, food service was fast and plentiful, and crew was in a good mood."
Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."
Pros: "The gentlemen from the wheelchair service who was there to pick us up when we arrived in Heathrow went above and beyond his duties. Instead of passing us over to another wheelchair attendant as we needed to switch terminals, he stayed with us thru the terminal change until we were on the airplane. We needed to get our boarding passes at Heathrow from a different airline and he helped us with this. Kudos to him!! The attendants on this flight were very helpful when my husband was having a diabetic reaction and I was vomiting form air motion sickness. We were a mess!! However the flight attendants were sure we had a wheelchair in Chicago and helped us with our bags as we were exiting the plane. Nice Job"
Pros: "Nice plane, very friendly pilot."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"
