Delayed with no updates and zero taking care of passengers

Great experience!

Late departure rude crew

plane was delayed 1 hour

On both my flights to and from Cabo, my flights were over an hour delayed.

They are misleading, rude and deceitful.

Pros: "The crew and leg room are really good compared to comparable flights on United, Delta or American. Especially love the power plug behind the seats."
Cons: "Couldn't watch any movies, and most of the DirectTV movies would not play. I was in seat 24 F, and 24 E had the same issue. They told us the reset the system, but it didn't help. Still, plenty of entertainment and on an actual screen on the back of the seat. So I consider it only a dissapointment on an otherwise good airline."
Pros: "Todo fue muy bien exelente"
Cons: "For a two hour tarmac wait could have served some snacks!"
Pros: "Boarding was reasonable, movies were ok and crew was attentive. Overhead space was good and leg room was satisfactory. Does seem to be a bit big than other airlines."
Cons: "Would prefer Seats to have been more comfortable. Difficult to place backpack under seat due to TV utility box. Snacks could have been better such as dried fruit, vegetable chips or herbal, decaf tea."
Pros: "JetBlue crew was awesome"
Cons: "this time around the whole experience was great"
Pros: "Everuthing was on time"
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "It was my birthday and they went above and beyond to make me feel special wishing me happy birthday shortly after teaching my seat and by giving me a Birthday card signed by the crew and treats."
Pros: "Jetblue is my now number 1 choice for flying. They offer amazing comfort and value."
Cons: "Including free headphones, but not a deal breaker."
Pros: "One flight attendant was sweet and kind the other was rude the boarding crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The older white lady was snarky for no reason to not just me idk if she was just cranky or what. My screen never worked the entire flight and the wifi was slow and shotty it was a harsh flight and I usually rave over jetblue idk what happened."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment that was available."
Cons: "The boarding is very haphazard. Clusters of people just standing around waiting for their group to be called. So when your group is called there are already several people there wanting you to get behind them. Which doesn’t make sense since I’ve been there a whole 2 hours before all of them."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "We were on an older version of the same plane as the monitors looked like they had seen better days."
Pros: "Everything. Nice updated plane, friendly staff at check in, gate and on the flight. Great value"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great service and amenities!!!"
Pros: "Great crew. Extra space seats are worth it. They added another flavor of pop chips!"
Cons: "I wish there were more movies offered. I love that they are there and there is live tv-but that offering could be improved."
Pros: "Wonderful experience with Jetblue"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight and overcrowded"
Pros: "The Agents at the counter in the terminal gate were courteous."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because an attendant had to be swapped out, then the replacement was stuck in traffic for an hour (why not have all attendants ready on-airport?). Comically, we taxied on the runway for over an hour, which caused more delays with the plane needing to be de-iced. Figured I'd put all that behind me, but then the flight experienced one of the worst turbulences I've been in. We jerked through the skies many times, and the pilots weren't reassuring. Thankfully we landed okay, but not after being late by multiple hours. Also, JetBlue needs to invest in its planes, esp. its Couch section. I felt like a pretzel with on room to breathe."
Pros: "I especially liked the smoothe boarding process, the genuine nature of the flight attendants, the movie and tv show selections, and the early landing."
Pros: "I slept a lot, there is more space than most planes"
Cons: "We were delayed by 3 hours, the flight had so much turbulence throughout, no water was passed out during our delay, in fact, it took way too long for beverages. When I boarded and settled in, a flight attendant was crushing Ice for about 30 minutes and the flight crew in the back was really loud during the flight when most of us were trying to sleep."
Pros: "Safe quick flight for the long journey despite delay in boarding and departure"
Cons: "Major delays not only going but returning with JetBlue. This was my first time flying them and I’m likely to never use them again. Poor customer service as no one was willing to help with WiFi set up on the way going since I’ve never flown them. Luckily I found 1 nice flight attendant and he helped point me in the right direction in set up. Overall not impressed with service and performance of this carrier."
Pros: "Missed flight gate changed not enough notice"
Cons: "Gate changed not enough notice missed flight"
Pros: "Free WiFi! Taking off and landing on time, smooth boarding, good snacks"
Cons: "The staff seemed a little tired but not unkind, just not psyched to be here."
Pros: "Pretty average JetBlue flight. I love the direct TV and wifi"
Cons: "Annoying and time consuming to discover that I couldn’t check in for my flight anywhere besides the counter at JFK because I had two layovers and that JetBlue and Hawaiian had completely different itineraries for me. And then when the flight attendant who checked me in mocked my 2 layover itinerary and said there was a direct flight to HNL from JFK leaving later that morning, she at least could have tried to sell me a seat on that flight, rather than rudely laugh at me “I guess you can only do what you can do” like I was too poor or something. That was annoying. I’m bored of the JetBlue snack selection it’s been the same for years."
Cons: "That the flight kept on getting delayed. JB staff should be more efficient. We understand the delay of up to one hour, but no one had any idea what was taking so long. we are two senior citizen with medical conditions. We specifically choose to fly JetBlue because they are on time and because of their service. We paid more to go with JetBlue, we could have gone with another cheaper airline. I guess it is time we change the way we think"
Pros: "Everything except the video service was great."
Cons: "The video in front of me no only didn't work, but kept randomly flashing the whole flight, so it was annoying even with eyes closed. Everything else was great.."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "Unpleasant. I requested some water, it arrived far too late. I stated I had diarrhea. The staff stated “Take your seat.” I stated I was under a doctors care for some injuries, I needed to be able to stretch my hip.” Once again the staff stated “take your seat.” The staff was rude, condescending, seemed annoyed and angry with having to do their job. I declare under penalty of perjury the formentioned is true and correct under the laws of the state of California. Karen Schuber"
Cons: "See above please."
Pros: "All our flights with jetblue were excellent"
Pros: "everything was good except that I didn’t like to pay for blanket"
Cons: "to pay for blanket"
Pros: "Literally the worst flight I’ve ever been on in my life."
Cons: "We were seated behind a woman who brought a sick cat into the flight. The stench of cat feces was overwhelming. When we addressed it with the staff, they were incredibly rude. I also shared that I had a very significant cat allergy. The staff continued to be incredibly rude, and eventually offered a single seat in the back, which would not accommodate the two of us. The woman next to us also expressed her extreme discomfort and was condescended and disrespected, as well. Shocking, miserable experience."
Pros: "Free WiFi was great, but wish I could sign in with my Amazon account instead of setting up TrueBlue."
Cons: "The food cart rushed by without asking if we wanted anything. Also not clear until after food purchase that free snacks would be available throughout the flight."
Pros: "Overall it’s always very easy and pleasant but I noticed this trip the quality was lower than I remember. Cheap coffee, no lemon for tea, little thin the nicer touches i remember previously. Plus the flight attendant had such a thick accent could barely understand her and the pilot had us in bumpy air the air the whole flight home."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and they had lots of options for entertainment"
Cons: "The plane is very cramped. I am a very small person and I still felt like I couldn’t really move to get things under the seat in front of me. The crew also only came around with food once during the flight, and I happened to be sleeping then, so I didn not get a chance to have any food."
Pros: "I liked the staff because they kept checking on me to see if I was comfortable since I wasn't feeling well."
Cons: "I did not like it when they asked me If I wanted to wait for another plane until I felt better. When I really wanted them to asks how can we assist you and make sure your flight is well."
Pros: "I wanted to first say that Colleen is maybe my favorite flight attendant I have ever had! She was so sweet and let us take multiple snacks and was extremely accommodating, never seeming annoyed by any request. I loved the entertainment, having new movies I have never seen made the flight fly by! The seats were comfortable and roomy, with a nice pocket to hold the water bottle. Overall very impressed with JetBlue this time around!"
Cons: "Tv not working both flights Food choices are very poor"
Pros: "We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants who stood at the front of the aircraft during boarding did not help us with our luggage placement in the overhead bins by our seats in row two. As a result we had to place one carry on several rows back which did, of course, make it difficult to get to upon landing. Subsequent to that, that same flight attendant helped a young man with his carry on with placement directly above his seat in the first row.Later on, I asked the same flight attendant if I could have some hot water for my wife (helps her with breathing). He came to me with a full cup of very hot, almost scalding, water and a small bottle of water. He did say that the water was very hot, but did not offer any ice to cool it. Naturally, we had no place to partially empty the cup and had to hold it for some time to let it cool. I did ask again for cooler water, but he said none was available."
Pros: "great"
Pros: "Crew were fine, boarding was easy. But on a 6 hour flight you have an expectation that the media will work, especially from Jet Blue since that’s what they build their business on."
Cons: "50% of the entertainment consoles were not working."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "TSA held me up with a 30 minute bag check so I arrived for an 11:30 AM flight at 11:16 AM. I was told that because I was a minute late they wouldn't let me on even though the plane was still in the runway and connected to the terminal. I asked to speak to a supervisor and the agent disappeared for 10 minutes while the plane took off. I then went to go speak to a customer service agent who wouldn't even look at me while I spoke. She actually started listening to and talking with another agent while I was talking to her. Then when I was finished, she started arguing with me until another agent said "he's not worth it." JetBlue just lost my business."
Cons: "It was requested at the boarding gate in LA that some people volunteer to have their bags checked since the flight was at capacity. So I offered to check my carry-on. When we landed at JFK after a red-eye... our baggage took over an hour since we landed to make it to the carousel. I have never had to wait that long for baggage, and it was especially frustrating when I offered to check and am exhausted from lack of sleep. Baggage should never take that long."
Pros: "The crew were okay. They were friendly."
Cons: "We left about 45 minutes late and there was no communication from the pilot as to why. Also there must have been a short or something in the wiring for my t.v. because I would put it on a channel and it would change by itself. It was also difficult to scroll through the options on the screen."

Bad service

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "It wasn’t"
Cons: "Why are you selling the food now ? It supposed to be included in the price when you purchase the flight, the attendant didn’t want it to give me a pillow or neither a blanket , I’m really disappointed with my experience..."
Pros: "I had space, and the plane was quiet."
Cons: "I wish the lifts would have turned off. They were on the whole time!!! Not okay."
Cons: "Food was undeserving for a 6 hour flight. One hour late with no previous warning and inflexible luggage policy."
Cons: "A lot of hassle. Both morning flights delayed. Missed connection. Causing a lot of problems for things booked at final destination."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "When they were giving safety instructions we couldn’t see the videos. I’m glad nothing happened. They manage to fix the issue with the entertainment after dinner."
Pros: "No problem with the booking and it was definitely the cheapest available!"
Cons: "More communication with the passengers when we had to abort landing and try again."
Pros: "What can we say? The plane departed on time. We had time to make our connection and we arrived early! Great flight!"
Cons: "Older plane without current technology on board"
Cons: "The aircraft was to old"
Pros: "The entertainment and food!"
Cons: "Not having to wait 4.5 hrs due to mechanical issues :("
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "The fact that I actually arrived to Bogotá tonight since in my 150 mins worth of phone calls + 7 itinerary revisions made over the wknd by Avianca, I honestly didn’t think I’d make it to Bogotá today"
Cons: "Empower and inform your phone customer service to actually be able to resolve customer questions and issues. Not ruin people’s vacations by changing their flight so many times and sending them illogical revised itineraries."
Pros: "We were in business and it was comfortable."
Cons: "When we bought business we thought it would be the same plane we flew to Quito on that had seats that went into beds. It wasn’t."
Pros: "The crew was so helpful and kind!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Avianca"
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay, missed my connector, and am now paying a lot $ of pocket for hotel and transport. My seat and tray table were broken.. seat kept going back, dangerous for take off and landing. Try table was hanging from side. Plantain chips were okay though."
Pros: "Confortable and on time"
Cons: "The airport did not have the gate on the screens (airports fault). But when asking the crew of Avianca no one knew. We had to search for an office when they where boarding cause no one knew. Then they told us (and a group of other people) run to the gate (almost loosing the flight)."
Pros: "I liked the fact the you keep reminding me dates and time of my travel."
Cons: "Everything was okay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that I lost my flight because website vayama changed my flight itinerary and didn't airlines know"
Pros: "In Bogota, the attendant rushed me and grand daughter to our connecting flight, very appreciative of that service! We made it with no time to spare, unfortunately no bathroom stop or water. Variety of Entertainment."
Cons: "I requested,water for my 5 year old grand daughter as soon as we boarded. I repeated the request 2 more times. One hour later, we were served drinks with everyone else. I am handicapped and had to walk to the end of the plane to get water the second time! :("
Pros: "El viaje entre Quito y Guayaquil es bastante corto, por tanto, no hay mucho espacio para conocer la amabilidad del personal o la calidad de la comida, porque no hay tiempo para servir sino bebidas. El aeropuerto está bien pero debe mejorar el espacio de la sala VIP"
Cons: "No permiten el ingreso a la única sala VIP del aeropuerto con programas de fidelización de compañías diferentes a las ecuatorianas."
Cons: "At take off water from the AC unit started Pouring my seat and my boyfriend’s seat (window and middle row 32 seats K and J). We sprung up to check to see if a water bottle from the overhead compartment was leaking. We were immediately yelled at by crew to sit down because it was take off. They didn’t see the water that was pouring down on us (from where they were seated) and other passengers were also trying to explain to crew members water was pouring down on us- luckily there was no one in the isle seat so we were able to shift one seat over. Otherwise we would have had to sit with water pouring down on us for 30 mon. The crew came over and said they could switch out the seat cushion. But that did nothing really because our clothes were totally soaked and it smelled bad from the water from the AC. Water also go on our electronics (headphones, iPad and phones) So it was a horrible 8 hour flight back to Los Angeles. Really sucks - I was a fan of Avianca - now I’m not impressed with how they maintain their planes or customer service for passengers who get soaked by their plane’s malfunction."
Pros: "I liked the food service on this very short trip, including a very heavily poured rum and coke!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about an hour."
Pros: "the plane departed on time, but the food is not too ideal, generally, l satisfied with your crews service , but when l checked in at the Costa Rica airport, the ground crew's service attitude was not friendly indeed.her bad attitude deeply impressed me."
Pros: "Generous food and beverage. No 1st checked luggage fee."
Cons: "My nonstop flight was anything but. At the San Jose Airport I got one boarding pass, and yet was told the flight was not direct when I inquired to confirm. I did not like that I had to offload some of my belongings out of my checked luggage. This was especially inconvenient as I had to deplane in Guatamala and go through their customs and security procedure all to get on the same plane 3 not so easy to get to gates over. And me with a broken toe, you can see how this would be not fun especially because I did not have any boarding pass or other information even telling me what gate I should be boarding at. It was really a small miracle that another passenger found someone to ask and I overheard the gate #. Stressful."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because our first flight was delayed. We arrived when our flight was scheduled to take off but instead of holding that flight for maybe 30 minutes so everyone with connections could make it, we had to spend the night in Bogota. At least we were provided with hotel and food vouchers but don’t see how that is cost effective or good service for the airline when holding the plane for less than an hour would have allowed dozens of people to make it back the day we were scheduled to."
Cons: "It was late and then I missed my connection, and an Avianca employee told me there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on. However, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Cons: "We upgraded to business class but it didn’t make up for the old plane. It was loud, old and dirty, the crew was good. It was was a 5+ hour flight and it would have been great to be on a newer plane, which they use for shorter flights."
Pros: "787"
Cons: "Boarding very long. Plane left 45 minutes late, no explanation given. Crew too chatty on PA - had to keep earbuds in all the time. Luggage took an hour in LAX, with priority bags coming out last."
Cons: "See above + air hostesses speak poor English. When asked to persuade certain travellers to put their seats in the upright position during mealtimes they refused and claimed that it is bussines of mine to arrange for that. In the course of previous flight they have hower required that. Very confusing. The behaviour and performance of the crew was hardly proffesional. They paid little attention e.g. To people who did respect instructions concerning fastening the seat belts orcto remain seated during landing, etc."
Pros: "Reasonable choice of entertainment. Clean."
Cons: "Food poor. Not enough drink. Hold up in tunnel for boarding - long hold up for children and passengers over 60."
Cons: "Delays and out of shape airplanes."
Pros: "none"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Smiling faces,friendly and helpful crew . The flight was a little late, and so we're the shuttle buses. Then almost made up the time on the flight, must have caught a tail wind."
Cons: "Late start, makes you a little nervous that you are going to be late."
Cons: "The passengers on this flight from San Salvador to LAX were drunk and standing in the aisles and talking VERY loudly for nearly the duration of the 4.5 hour flight, and the crew did nothing about it. I asked the crew (a grumpy male flight attendant) if they are allowed to do that, and he merely grunted. The female flight attendants smiled at the large men drinking in the aisles and continued to bring them drinks. My boyfriend had a large man's butt in his face for the duration of the flight. Behind us a man was talking very loudly and obnoxiously about his travels to the point where his voice woke us up. The crew did NOTHING to mitigate the obnoxious behavior of the passengers, and allowed them to stand in the aisle for the whole flight, to the point where we felt claustrophobic and invaded upon. We were particularly surprised as we've heard that this violates airline policy AND the crew did nothing to even ask them to sit or to move to the back of the plane. In addition, it was very hot at the AC was not working above our seats."
Pros: "I arrived with plenty time and no person would help me check in unprofessional no knowledge where to send customers and I end up late with 5 min to spare my flight was at 9am I arrived at 7:25am and was not with enough time to board"
Cons: "No one helped me get to the gate or even check me in"
Pros: "Entertainment, seat comfort"
Cons: "20 minutes on the plane stopped at the gate. 15 minute bus ride to the International terminal. Over sized bags took 2 hours to arrive. Regular baggage over an hour."
Cons: "After receiving my luggage in Los Angeles, I discovered that they had broken the zipper of the bag and also the lock in the bag. They also took from my bag gifts I had bought for my friends (lighters with their name)!!"
Pros: "From boarding to inflight, everything was excellent. My wife and I are already looking at routes that Avianca flies so we can book again!"
Pros: "Like the non-stop flight. It saves a lot of time."
Cons: "I realize it is necessary but being one of the random security checks before boarding sucked."
Pros: "Good selection of movies, free exit row seats and extremely cheap fare"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding with extra security measures before entering the plane (opening carry on and patting you down), we were about 30minutes late, crew couldn't control passengers with kids (kids were running around the plane), horrible food and stiff seats (barely any cushion)."
Pros: "Everyone is always very friendly and flights are always on time, I've flown first class and economy and they treat you just as friendly! No problems with my bags or anything"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Before our flight, several people were called to the check-in desk. These were obviously frequent flyers because later we saw these individuals sitting in Executive Class. Felt a little jealous, because I'm not a frequent flyer, but it was nice to see how Avianca takes care of its regular customers. Everything about the flight was first class, even if I was sitting in coach. The staff were friendly and helpful, the plane was comfortable--a 787, everyone's favorite--and the food was actually very tasty: chicken breast with a delicious green curry/salsa, some rice, green salad. Water and juices were available in the aft galley in between the meal and light snack before arrival. The entertainment offerings were terrific. If I hadn't had such great traveling companions to chat with, I would have caught up on some new releases I had missed, or one of the classics--"Singing in the Rain," "Citizen Kane," and much more. I don't know how you could improve the customer experience. Great job, Avianca!"
Pros: "On time. Friendly crews."
Cons: "Seat back table broken. Video system froze a few times."
Pros: "The food they served for dinner was enjoyable."
Cons: "After arriving in San Salvador from San Jose, another passenger informed us that there was a flight departing for LAX at around 3:30 PM. Considering that our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:25 PM, we decided to ask the customer representative at the Avianca information desk if there were any open seats available on our flight home to LAX. She informed us that there were open seats BUT we would have to pay an extra $200 to board that flight. I have been on other airlines before and they have offered me the option to get on an earlier flight - FREE OF CHARGE. Considering I had bought my complete, round trip ticket for $435, the idea of paying an extra $200 for one leg of my journey seemed ludicrous! So I stayed the 6+ hours in El Salvador. Fast forward 6 hours and the desk agent at our gate announces that our flight is completely booked and they are offering $300 for anyone who will give up their seats. I am PISSED. Avianca knew our flight was overbooked and had the opportunity to take two passengers off the list and free up seats for the next flight! Instead, they chose to make us wait and delayed our flight. I do not understand Avianca's customer service procedures. Why would you not put my friend and I on the next flight when you know the next flight is going to be overbooked and possibly delayed? I'll I know is that if I can avoid flying with Avianca in the future, I will do it."
Pros: "It was awesome that movies and checking bags were free for the flight! That was something i did not expect:)"
Pros: "The flight to Lima is a two hour flight. In that. We were given full meal and had the option of wine with dinner. Staff was very helpful. I indicated that I was thirsty and they gave me three glasses of water immediately. The plane was relatively new flight was uneventful.boarding and debarcation were easy"

Great customer service. Safety and cleanliness. Fly delta.

I liked that once up, things ran more smoothly and we still landed on time despite a 45+ minute delay leaving the gate. The boarding process was another story. With the demand for proof of a negative COVID test prior to boarding by the US, Air France had just 2 staff members checking these tests results, collecting a paper affidavit of sorts also required by the US, and checking boarding passes and passports for an entire Boeing 777 full of passengers. There were other staff around This seemed preposterous. Then, when I finally boarded, the luggage was still be loaded onto the plane at 1:50pm for a flight schedule to leave at 1:15pm.

I wrote a review to Delta already expressing my dislike of the fact that I could not get a seat assigned upon checkin or even at the airport until maybe 1 hr before my flight. The cabo representative (not part of the flight crew based from Los Angeles) was rude and not accommodating, so my wife and I had to sit separately, which was frustrating to say the least, given I had followed the entire online check in protocol, including uploading digital copies of my negative COVID-19 test.

It would have been nice to be served some water

Couldn’t have done anything better.

The TSA screening is absolutely unnecessary. It is dehumanizing and has been proven to be in-effective!

Don’t seat 500lb people on regular seats. Miserable flight and will be asking for a refund. Horrendous sat on the floor half the flight

The flight back from Cabo was excellent however the flight from LAX was terrible. I was happy by accident to get to LAX 4 hours,early. It took almost all 4 hours. I dont think I will fly with Delta out of LAX anytime soon.

Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Pros: "tCrew was good. On one side of airplane in main cabin, bathroom was twice size of normal airplane bathrooms. This was welcome."
Cons: "Seats were reasonable."
Cons: "Went from LA to Guangzhou, China. My family checked 6 bags in. Only 5 arrived in China. My bag with ALL my clothes and ALL my meds was the one missing. I had nothing to wear (and that includes underwear) and no meds for 2 freakin’ days. Worst experience EVER!!!!"
Pros: "The entire thing, food, service, and ..."
Cons: "More room in each seat"
Pros: "The cockpit crew waited to turn the plan off until the Footbal playoff game was finished. I thought that was very considerate of them."
Cons: "Seats were right but that I guess is to be expected these days."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and we made up plenty of time when we were only 15 mins late for take off."
Cons: "Baggage broke our baby stroller. Banged up, heavy deep scratches, and won’t lock properly nor will it release the brake phone portly where one wheel won’t unlock without much luck. Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Pros: "I love flying Delta and my flight to Australia was incredible. I like the fact that I can check two bags free and the free inflight messaging and entertainment. Some of the staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seat I was in was broken. It moved and I was stuck sitting on metal. There was no leg room. The plane used going to Australia was a lot roomier this plane was old. Some of the flight attendants were very unfriendly and seemed to be bothered by the fact they had to do their job. The entertainment system had to be rebooted multiple times and the usb on the seats didn’t work. They ran out of food during lunch."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "food was pretty good."
Cons: "a bit squashy in the seat. Inability to go online and select my seat without having to ring Delta and they do it."
Pros: "Thai was the first time in years delta was fast friendly and ONTIME with both departures and arrivals! That’s he most important to me!"
Cons: "No wifi available and The video entertainment service was bad: my video screen didn’t work- I asked for head phones and no one ever came back to me with some- luckily I had already Dwnld my own you tube and videos so I watch’s dmh own. I hope going home to hawaii these won’t be issue again"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Cons: "They change schedule day before we flight, the change schedule 2 time while were flighting"
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t care about you or to help, the llady was so rude and unfriendly, this situation ruin my whole trip"
Cons: "I call in advance to paid the fees for baggage, I call Aeromexico because was the main airline for the fly, but Delta at Seattle made me paid again the fees for baggage’s even by phone they said that I didn’t need to paid. BE AWARE AND CAREFUL BECAUSE THE LADIES IN THE FRONT DESK didn’t even look the paperwork that you have in hand, they only want to charge you saying that your payment thru Aeromexico didn’t help you in the 1st fly. How this can happen when Delta and Aeromexico are two subsidiary one of another ?"
Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."
Pros: "Boarding went well, departed on time and arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work. I brought it to the attention of a flight attendant since all the attendant lights weren't". So they were having a glitch I the system. He said he had them reset mine. Hee must have furthermore until they did the beverages. They tried twice, nothing worked. No movies, no audio, no light. Nothing done, no compensation. NYC to Seattle, a long flight tho not even read my magazines."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Poor service Poor air craft space The is my worst cattle transport Shame on Delta"
Pros: "Nothing to like about this leg"
Cons: "The cramped real cramped space, shame on the US Poor service Delta should be ashamed of itself for this kind of poor cattle transport"
Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."
Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Cons: "Short flight didn't provide food or beverage service. Cabin crew announcements were rapid & muffled, difficult or impossible to hear or understand. Would not have felt confident if there'd been an emergency."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "Even though all the seats weren't sold out I couldn't upgrade my seat afterwards"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Cons: "Connection flight from LAX to Seattle was dropped off of booking completely. When Delta was able to fix the changes in Sydney Australia they put my husbands ticket as a standby instead of putting him in an assigned seat and reported that they couldn't fix it that we would have to wait and get to LAX before the changes could be made again. There was a one and a half hour flight delay from LAX to Seattle. From Sydney Australia to LAX entertainment system didn't work the whole entire flight, they were screaming children the entire flight, and Delta had double booked seats on several different people. There were no apologies and no compensation for any of the incidences."
Pros: "I loved the service provided by the flight attendants as as well as the gate attendant who poked, prodded and did what he could to ensure our already late flight took off before it got stuck waiting for a gate at LAX. Thanks to him and the work of the crew, not only did the flight leave ASAP, our flight arrived early."
Cons: "I didn't like that the monitor for my seat was on the fritz and inoperable, which became a huge issue because of what follows. Making matters exponentially worse was the roughly 30-minute delay we experienced when we landed. Although our flight arrived at LAX early - in spite of the late departure from SLC - we were left waiting for a gate and were forced to wait for a gate. Inexplicably, the AC was turned off and the passengers all began to virtually cook while stuck in our seats. Also, due to another asinine snafu (the grounds crew didn't push a flight far out enough and blocked our plane along with eight others, which delayed our flight further. Adding insult to injury, my baggage was over 30 minutes late, too."
Pros: "Lovely staff"
Cons: "No meal served on a 5 hours flight!"
Pros: "Everything aside from the smell seated next to me."
Cons: "The person I was seated next to had very very bad body odor. They also urinate on the seat. I had to tell the flight attendant about the spoiled seat that I previously brought to the attention of the caretaker of the individual but she had zero concern. I was on a 7 hour flight having to try and avoid the smell. I had to attempt to eat food trying to avoid that smell. The person in front of my seat was able to smell the body odor and urine. He also warned me about the urine in the seat that I was aware of but at least he cared unlike that caretaker. If not fot that experience my flight would have been much better."
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "Seat cushion was worn out There should be a vegan option for food, or one that can be converted to vegan."
Pros: "nice attitude and everytime smiling and last food before just landing"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Thanks"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and my seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The crew is what made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The food could have been better."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable. This was a night flight, so I would have loved if they turned off the lights during the flight so I could sleep."
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "All is ok"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and kept us well fed and hydrated"
Pros: "The ride was great"
Cons: "Couldn't get home earlier"
Cons: "This way the worst travel experience I have ever had. Arrival/departure with Kopa was the make unorganized thing I have ever witnessed in all of my travels. I literally felt like a prisoner during the boarding process while getting absolutely no communication from staff."
Pros: "I was seated in exit rows both ways, so there was more leg room. I really liked that they gave one full meal during the flight and then a snack just before boarding. It is a long flight, so no food - or just piddly snacks - would have been miserable. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The odd crew member was a bit grouchy, but that happens everywhere."
Pros: "Seat were okay. Crew okay."
Cons: "For such long flight the crew should be more promptly at the time of serving. It took a long time for them to be ready to offer a second drink."
Pros: "The crew was nice. However, it took a long time to get a second drink in such long flight. And they didn't offer coffee or hot tea. In addition, it took a long time for the passengers to get situated in their respecting sits."
Cons: "To be more organized at the boarding time, and a more promptly and fast service."
Cons: "It was delayed more than 5 hours and they left everyone waiting without explanations. It took them 4 hours to give water to passengers."
Pros: "The crew was attentive & good; my meal was good and I enjoyed the wine served. my seat was comfortable to sit in."
Cons: "For business class, I expected my seat to recline more. The footrest didn't extend much, and it wasn't really conducive to sleeping... my feet/legs were very uncomfortable. I expected better than that. Also, I tried to use the entertainment screen & it didn't work well; then it froze & wouldn't work at all."
Pros: "copa is always on time"
Cons: "food quality is low drinks are 'rationed'"
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: "I am a premier member of other airline and they treated me bad (gate counter). On the way to Ecuador, they have placed me in a group 2 however on the way back home is different. I asked for the change the group number since I am a premier member of the Star Alliance. People at the gate counter weren't kind at all, especially in Panama City International Airport."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service; complimentary food AND alcoholic beverages; on-time flights; great value!"
Cons: "Cabin temperature could hsve been cooler."
Pros: "The food was great, taste.Thank you"
Pros: "Im requesting a refund."
Cons: "Copa airline is a terrible airline. Not sure how they still in business. The ticketing agents were extremely rude and show a great deal of careless towards their customers. I arrived had already checked in, i had no luggage i simply had a backpack and a carry on bag.She told me that my plane was gone 1.5hr before departure. She went in the system type customer missed flight. What she did was deceptive, unethical, and of course should be illegal. I still believe that flight was overbooked, copaairline had to cancel my previous flight due to the weather. When i contacted copa airline directly nothing they could do they said. I was advised by copaairline to wait 3-4 hrs to reactivate my ticket. I was told specifically by a gentleman that there was a flight boarding at 12am. I waited at the airport for about 8hrs to find out there wasno 12am flight that day. I cant make this up people, i have never in my entire life experience that level of stress and anxiety. I want my money back!!!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly."
Cons: "It’s nice that Copa feeds you, even on short flights. But every option was meat- there was no vegetarian option. (The site I booked through didn’t give me - or at least I didn’t see it- the option to request a special meal.) In this day and age, I really recommend they have a non-meat option. On another flight on this trip, I also asked for hot tea from the drink cart, and they said it was coming, and it never came."
Pros: "I liked that this airline still feeds it's travelers a good meal during flights."
Pros: "Crew members were polite, the food was good, more entertainment options"
Cons: "Felt like the AC was not working correctly, it was very warm and people were sweating until we arrived to LAX"
Pros: "excellent crew tribulation! good movies selection, but i suggest to add terror films to the catalog."
Cons: "they took too much time to started boarding the plane. there were no options for the burrito. only meat."
Cons: "They ran out of food options as it go at to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Very timely departure not long layover like many airlines."
Cons: "The drinks didn't come with ice and was very warm."
Cons: "I didn't like, I didn't have the option to choose my seat."
Pros: "The service, the language, the good food."
Pros: "The business class seating was awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly and Courteous employees. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Gates were not available upon arriving at destinations. Once we had to take a shuttle bus from plane to gate."
Pros: "Service, food and very clean airplane."
Cons: "We like this airline"
Cons: "We were sitting for at least three hours before drinks were served, and not because there was any turbulence. It just took them forever to load up the cart. Also, the air conditioning wasn't working very well. We were roasting for nearly seven hours."
Pros: "The crew they provide us what we need"
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."
Cons: "The space for the legroom was to tight. I had to stand up several times to stretch my legs, they were getting cramps. I'm only 5'8"."
Pros: "The Crew, the lady in Business Class was very professional. You are fortunate to have a lady like her in your employ. Generally COPA itself. My only complaint so far I wrote about in this thread."
Cons: "Panama gate, there were not enough seats, one had to stand, or lay on the floor. LAX, did we land in Inglewood? We had to bus to the terminal (which made elders carry their luggage up steps); it had to stop every time we were within certain feet of a moving plane, your staff telling people to move closer on the bus, when we were already packed in. It added a much longer time to the trip, and I saw COPA planes attached to the terminal, unfortunately we were not one of them. I paid for the upgrade, which was fine, buy the Panama gate, and the bus situation was bad. Health & happiness..........."
Pros: "That I was able to eat in the plane excellent food!!"
Cons: "That didn't have Wi-Fi and the economy seating only one bathroom was working"
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: "Leaving the plane when it landed."
Cons: "Second time in a five day span where i didn't have a seat because they overbooked and over sold. The first time resulted in a two day delay and they tried to blame my connecting flight when , in fact, they had oversold the flight. The reps at LAX were horrific. The only She was awful. manager refused to talk to me about the issue as she had other customers to take care of...devil spawn. No help. I had to call the online number to get another flight and they tried numerous times to talk to her but she refused. Yet, I would see devil spawn on her phone laughing and joking and talking... but too busy to help the consumer. She was awful. Horrible."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Helpful."
Cons: "Media offering in the plane was somehow limited."
Cons: "Copa 302 dumped us at the LAX terminal's immigration processing area along with 500+ passengers. I'm guessing that passengers from 3 or 4 other flights just overwhelmed the immigration staff . It took us ( just the US citizens ) 1:05 to pass through. People in other categories too longer !!! Ed Villena"
Pros: "Price. Minimal delays."
Cons: "Incredible how indifferent staff is to dirty bathrooms, faulty entertainment systems, and unsafe passenger behavior."
Pros: "Staff was professional, efficient, and kind in moving my mother who cannot walk and was in a wheelchair. Thank you"
Pros: "I liked that food was included...it was hot and mostly tasted pretty good. I liked that there was entertainment included...with free headsets. The crew were very nice and did a wonderful job taking care of us."
Cons: "I think the boarding process could be improved. Alaska Airlines boards from the rear (after 1st class and mileage partners) and that sort of helps the bottleneck in the middle. I would have liked more choices of movies...but, gee - I managed just fine."
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: "My infant son was very grouchy and crying a lot I really appreciated how the crew tried to cheer him and offer him snacks and talk to him when they would pass by to cheer him up, it helps a struggling mommy"
Cons: "The cabin is very dirty and the ear phone ad touch screen doesn't work properly"

My flight from Lima to La has been delay for 2 hours l has to run because l had a conecction from La to Phoenix of course the airport was a mess because it was under construcción. My coneccion was delay again for 45 minutes! Well l made it l guess! The landing was horrible!!

Pros: "The crew was very warm."
Cons: "Seats very tight."

Cons: "Leg space. There was very little leg space. One hour before the flight departure they were already announcing 'last call' on the airport screens."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "One little cookie for snack is nothing. Planes are old. Seats are uncomfortable. The movies app doesn’t work very well and it requires subtitles available for non English speakers"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly! The seat was great!"
Cons: "Cadeira dura"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Everything is amazing"
Cons: "Everyone"
Cons: "After getting off the shuttle to board the plane via stairs, men at the bottom and top of the stairs both stopped everyone and refused anyone to board. We were stuck on the tarmac for around 2-3 minutes. No entertainment options during the flight. No free food. Only water."

Pros: "Smooth flight, arrived a bit early"
Cons: "There was one crew member who was VERY rude to me at the end of the flight"
Pros: "yes"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Confortable seats, flight on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant kept talking all night with two passengers. I could hear them even with ear plugs. When I finally was able to sleep, she didnt wake me up for breakfast even when I especifically asked to be awakened. And than replied that she wasnt able to wake me. Awful service for executive."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good, my device connected immediately, and the movie started right away (while the boarding process was being completed)."
Cons: "More vegetarian options in the menu."
Cons: "The temperature should be a bit warmer"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "I liked the person I was sitting next to"
Cons: "It was fine, but they scattered my group of six all over the plane because we didn’t pay for special seats"
Pros: "Crew was extremely unfriendly"
Cons: "Better service. Train your people. Learn from azul airlines"
Pros: "latam airlines only wants your money, if you miss your flight they will book your seat to someone else, you will be stranded, and they will not reschedule or refund. i now live in the airpot and I sold my car for this and I just want to die now"
Cons: "less ignorant/greedy management"
Pros: "They were very kind!"

Pros: "Service is better . Has improve a lot"
Cons: "Lack of food!! LATAM you are doing it wrong"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Cons: "Flight delayed well over an hour, Airport stuff unhelpful, Very below average."
Pros: "- Flight in bound to Peru + 7 hrs late. Family of 4 separated. - Flight in bound to Cusco Overbooked. Sent us on a different flight. - Return flight from Cusco Bumped (+4 hrs late), promised voucher and upgrade due to all the previous issues. - Return flight out bound from Lima. Would no recognized any of the promises nor the inconveniences of the other flights and the promises. (In Lima all was denied by the land people but they kept on sending us from one person to another for over 3 hours until the final minute when all passengers where on board they said they could not do anything). Family was separated once again."
Cons: "The crew did their best to overcome what the land supervisors did not do. Check with us during the flight."
Pros: "the entertainment console's on the seat backs are modern and have a lot of content."
Cons: "LATAM made me pour out all the water at the gate that I purchased on the concourse after security. they also made me throw away my food. I am very displeased that I had to throw out $15+ dollars of food and drink and that I had zero water when getting on an 11 hour flight. that's outrageous."
Pros: "our flight back home went smoothly"
Cons: "our flight from LAX to Montevideo was delayed by 8 hours, making us miss our connections. We arrived day late. Our luggage a day after that. Our friends went back home on another LATAM flight from Buenos Aires that was delayed. They were flown for 2 days around South America before making to LAX."
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."
Pros: "Staff none"
Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"
Pros: "A good amount of room, really enjoyed that you could check in two 23kg bags free. It helped a lot with the carry on baggage issue (lack of space, too many people wanting to put their too large bags in the overhead bins). Good entertainment selection, they provide headphones which is nice. Comfy blankets. The crew was attentive and patient."
Cons: "Started boarding late but the captain got us to our destination early even in spite of late boarding."
Pros: "Large amounts of movies to choose from."
Cons: "NO LEG ROOM! The worst!"
Cons: "I showed up to my flight from Lima and was told by Latam that my flight wasn't in their system. Due to the late hour and lack of customer service agents by the time I was able to get to the front of the line (phone calls didn't go through to anyone) the time had passed for me to even check in. According to Latam, Virgin changed my flight and forgot to rebook my return home. I ended up sleeping at the Lima airport, paying out of pocket almost $2000 and having to fly through Miami. No one took responsibility for the fact my ticket was changed and I wasn't informed - unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew and in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Coming from the cuisine of Peru, I expected the food in coach to at least not taste like rubber and have some variety. A ham and cheese pastry for dinner didn't quite cut it. At least they offer free wine and beer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. We never made it to the last flight because they cancelled our flight home, stranding us (myself, husband and 2 small children) in Ecuador. I have traveled extensively for almost 20 years and have NEVER dealt with such a terrible company with such shady employees. It was unbelievable and we aren't the only ones. Just take a peek at their social media accounts. They don't allow reviews anymore but there is a community of people who have been stranded in South America by LATAM and the link is easily found. They seem to have a ploy to try and get people to buy extra tickets. Seriously a scam. Stay away!"
Cons: "They said , the are not responsable for my personal items, this is not acceptable"
Cons: "Latam could not link with American Airlines. It was like I had two separate tickets even though they had a code share with AA. I couldn't get a boarding pass across airlines and my seat assignments were a real problem."
Cons: "When buying a flight price and the airline on which I fly are the two most important factors.... LAN transferred my flight to AVIANCA and the food was terrible and the flight attendants weren't very friendly in general. The experience was not very enjoyable"
Pros: "Staff was nice despite the situation."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, we were reassigned to a Turkish Airlines flight that departed more than 6 hours later than our cancelled flight, we were given lunch but at a fast food restaurant even when we had to carry along all our luggage (super un-practical). And searching for info on twitter I found out this flight gets cancelled quite a lot."
Cons: "After pass security, before we were about to boarding, everyone was all waiting for their turn there were many security stuffs showed up and let entire people open their bags before get on the plane. It end up delayed flight too."
Pros: "I was able to move my seat to a middle seat and got to watch."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Good movie selection at in seat screen and I was lucky enough to get one that worked."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Food was not good. They made me throw out the soda I bought inside the airport AT THE GATE then didn't give enough to drink on board the plane."
Cons: "We took off for Curitiba and found out when we got there that we couldn't land so we went back to Sao Paulo then had to sit on the plane for two and a half hours. The Curitiba airport had opened, but then we had to change staff and also the staff brought the wrong paperwork to the plane, so that caused further delays. Really frustrating."
