Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving NYC and when we landed in New Orleans, the gate was occupies, so we had to wait."
Cons: "We were delayed which happens sometimes. I departed gate 26 at JFk the problem with the delay was there was no place to sit during the 90 min delay"
Pros: "Our crew was great"
Cons: "The delay sucked all the kiosks didn’t work 45 minute wait at the help desk bad"

Cons: "Evetying was excelent"
Pros: "Crew was so helpful... even loaned me a phone charger."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after we boarded- originally scheduled to be in time. We sat on Tarmac 1.5hrs before we were able to take off"
Cons: "Pillow and blanket were extra"
Pros: "I made a flight, canceled it that day and booked on a different airline. But, I never got a cancellation email. So all I saw was the JetBlue flight. Last night, I got an email from Kayak telling me to check in so my daughter went to the wrong airport to the wrong flight!!"
Cons: "Why was Kayak not notified that I don't have this flight anymore? I booked 2 months ago...didn't remember the details. Do you know how confusing it is to get a check-in email, after no cancellation email? So when I search my email all that comes up is the flight that was canceled! Bad communication"
Pros: "entertainment, boarding-excellent Seat were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Crew needs to learn better customer service"
Pros: "The flight was relatively quick and smooth."
Cons: "When I boarded the flight the overhead bins were already full so I had to check my bag at the gate. When I picked it up at baggage claim my bag was soaked and my pink bag had black dirt all over it. The terminal had poop on the floor in multiple spots along the main path where people walk, which is clearly disgusting and concerning. Although the flight was fine the combination of these things made it a very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Just liovrJetBlue! The personnel is always attentive and engaging, quick with a smile and ready to lend a hand when needed. I believe other airlines should try to find out their hiring process and copy their system to get such quality people that understand service."
Cons: "JetBlue is how flying is meant to be!"
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."
Cons: "Blankets are $5"
Pros: "We were very happy with practically everything with our first impression of this airline as well as the customer service."

Cons: "I searched and searched forever to figure out how to connect to the WiFi inflight. My phone kept telling me that I was connected but I could not use any apps or connect to the internet in anyway. I looked in the seat back pocket for information on how to connect, nothing. I googled before we took off, nothing. I loved everything else about this flight but this was incredibly frustrating, especially when I was traveling for work."
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: "Slightly greater than average leg room, makes a difference! Have not flown much with JetBlue in the past, but I plan to use them more in the future!"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly!"

Pros: "Great customer service and attentive staff. I would definitely ride Jetblue again."
Pros: "JetBlue in general"

Ordered dinner, was almost as tasty as a Stouffers meal (it was some type of glop of lamb). 7 hours into flight the menu advertised a warm chocolate chip cookie, asked for one was told they THOUGHT they were out, came back about an hour later said the found one, but it wasn't warm, so I passed (not a real fan of eating food they found) About 8 hours into flight , the attendant said out of the blue that they were sorry about not providing the meal all together as requested, but that the other attendant didn't know they offered that service."
Pros: "Easy transition through customs."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Pros: "Crew that's it"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours plus late and we couldn't get an accurate update as to when to pick up our son. We got text messages that were never updates, online your information was wrong and when we called agents had the wrong flight information. Terrible experience all around."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"
Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."
Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Cons: "Flight attendants are miserable"
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Pros: "They crew and food was Excellent."

Pros: "- friendly service - complimentary headphones - wine/beer/liquor in economy seat - decent meals served with a smile - airline that doesn't nickel and dime you - attractive male flight attendants - EXCELLENT English"
Cons: "- Panama City's staff. Wasn't sure if it's everything related to that airport, but that crew was horrible. Not friendly and highly disorganized, they left a very sour taste in my mouth after my amazing experience with COPA thus far. They felt like a completely different airline!"
Cons: "Not even there yet...Apparently plane did not meet safety standards. Inconvienced family that had to drive all the way to Orlando, take time from work, waiting for me to return and I now I'm 5 hours late. Staff was not helpful and advised we go talk to customer service at the airport. The flight was also not the smoothest and left many unhappy customers, that won't return to Copa. I understand things happen but they were very unfriendly about this situation..what's the point of spending all the $ on insurance for this situation to occur and there's no compinsation for it."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew on the plane were very nice."
Cons: "I did not like that we were not informed that the flight was delayed 2 hours. We were only told bc we asked what was talking so long to board. It was very unprofessional and the copa representative told us that that was very normal to not tell us that the flight was delayed"

To make matters worse,Pne fellow wound up taking us out in bits by advancing one wheel chair and walking back for me and so on. He droptus off in a secure area an when it was time to board, staff demanded that we walk back to the Security point. The woman was adamant and supposedly a supervisor finally agreed that we could wait for a wheelchair. In Miami they had only requested one wheelchair. The food on the Panama to Miami flight left a lot to be desired."
Pros: "The options for meals. The availability of drinks."
Cons: "The heater was on for a long period of time. Many people can't handle/breathe in heat. Being on a plane with so much heat circulating without being able to turn on the air may cause panic attacks. One can always bundle up to get warm, if it's too cold."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late checking in for my flight from LAX to Cali. Another airlines was 7 hours late delivering me to LAX. My situation dictated that I arrive in to Cali at a specific time.

Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Strange use of curtains upfront during flight. I was asked to check my carryon for free to help out with boarding, but then had to wait longer to get the bag in baggage claim. It was the last bag of my checked bags to show up. Checked carryon bags should have a higher priority to return."
Pros: "Friendly and correct cabin crew."

Pros: "This non-stop flight was wonderful. The aircraft is comfortable, the whole flight was smoothly, even though it's fifteen hours flight."

Pros: "yo tenia comida kosher y no me la dieron"
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."
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"

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: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."

Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"
Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"
Cons: "Latam The website of Latam is useless. The services for people in broadcoast is so difficult that almost impossible (email, facebook, telephone, etc) In my case, i was in Africa and couldn´t change my ticket. My brother had to change it from Argentina."
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).

Cons: "I got there on time to board, but my mobile boarding pass will not scan. At which point I was asked to go back to the check in counter to have another one printed. Ended up missing the flight because of that. No refunds whatsoever. Apparently the boarding pass issue is common with Aeromexico at ORD"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Not charge for the extra bag"
Pros: "The service on the plane is ok."
Cons: "On the trip Mex to Bogota, the airplane belated to landed, around four hours after. First it was almost landed to Bogota, we were on El Dorado airport and then back to the air and then going to Medellin airport for landed. So they keeped us inside the airplane (I do not how many time, but maybe 1 an half hour inside) and then back to Bogota for landed. So it was awful and worried time."
Cons: "I was not happy to be told that I could not take my carry-on in the plane because the plane was supposably full. Several people that came after me had their carry-ons and there was space. My carry-on bag was a gift and it was damaged just like I told the attendees it would happen."
Pros: "The sandwich was okay. I liked the individual video screens, good entertainment options. I like that my checked bag was free."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude. I was seated in an emergency exit isle, and I was told that I couldn’t have my handbag under the seat in front of me. This is the first time I’ve heard of a airline with this policy. My bag was put in the overhead bin and I couldn’t access my tablet or headphones or medicine during the flight. Also, the chair (maybe because it was the exit row) would not recline. This was pretty terrible for a red eye flight. I asked the flight attendant if I could switch seats, (well before take off) I didn’t mind if it was a middle seat, just somewhere I could have my bag with me... she rudely remarked that the plane was late and I needed to sit back down. Terrible service, it was a simple request. I’m sure someone with long legs would have been happy to switch with me. I also don’t like that my carry on bags had a weight limit."
Pros: "Good rate,"
Cons: "They didn't have a wheelchair assistance for one passenger."
Pros: "All my connections were on time, and my luggage came so fast! No problems whatsoever."
Cons: "The food is not great."
Cons: "Never took it!"
Cons: "Airplane was hot and airless. Tray table was broken."
Cons: "In general very poor customer service"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight, no entertaintment, no movies, headsets did not work, no air conditioning, poor service, bad food."
Pros: "Well organized"
Cons: "People in the airline need to be a bit more frienly"
Cons: "3 hr delay...."
Cons: "was forced to switch seats by a stewardess from my window to an aisle because some people wanted to sit together on a 9 hour red eye. really pissed me off as I bought the ticket early because I could get a window seat for this. I had been assigned thr window but didn't want to cause a scene."
Pros: "It was a very good fare in terms of biz class"
Cons: "Food was terrible . Drink selections terrible, bathroom dirty , service was not good at all"
Pros: "Coming back was okay, fly attendants were nice everything was good. thank you."
Cons: "Going to Mexico, I ask for a glass of water and the fly attendant ignored me and she did not come back. I know she heard me, she gave a drink to the other passenger"
Cons: "Not being able to get checked in onn a more timely basis. The long and slow line when you were finally able to check in."
Pros: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."
Pros: "The 787 leg from Santiago to Mexico City was fine. The 787 Dreamliner is a comfortable ride."
Cons: "The smaller plane used for the MEX to DEN leg had less entertainment options and no wifi."
Pros: "Food was just terrible¡"
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t let me board"
Cons: "The fact they sell you a flight with a connection in Mexico City with only an hour to transfer is ridiculous. Being that this is mexico’s airline they must know it’s a literal impossibility to make that connection. When you arrive they automatically shuttle you into an area to rebook you almost like it’s expected. Then you wait for 8 hrs in a crowded ghetto airport waiting to get on the next flight. When you speak to customer service they talk to you like your a dummy."
Cons: "Miss morning fight onAeroméxico ,canceled our return fligh thome Wanted to charge us more to More to book a flight back the fair was the fair was double the price what I paid so I had to book with United Airline"
Pros: "Good selection of movies which are controlled by the individual passengers. Comfortable seats. Served breakfast of fruit, yogurt and muffin."
Cons: "Don't like flying through Mexico City because the immigration process is very poor, i.e.long lines to get to agents . Airport is cold at night."
Pros: "Best seating I've ever had flying coach on a long (8hr) flight. Boeing 787, great airplane! with the exception of the awful food, great flight."
Cons: "bad, bad food. terrible chicken dinner, even worse pasta, no salt and pepper, a bun that tasted and looked dried and tasteless, no butter."
Pros: "The flight was not crowded so had plenty of room. Entertainment was just ok."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Pasta with nothing on it."
Pros: "I like the service and they fly on time"
Cons: "The confort of the seats to small"
Cons: "I was told at the check in counter that I had to pay for baggage even though I had made the trip from Chicago to Santiago via Mexico City ten days prior and was able to check two suitcases without having to pay for baggage. Also, both of my suitcases were damaged during this flight."
Cons: "The lady at the desk tried to deceived me charging for luggage. At the end she quit and let us go. The food from Buenos Aires to Mexico was the worst ever in a flight service!"
Cons: "My fligth was dilay for 2 hours and i got charge a baggeg on a international fligth"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly we got through customs quickly in Mexico. I like the fact that they gave us food and drink."
Pros: "I wish I could post pictures of the broken magazine holder in front of my seat and the tangled seat belt that I could barely tie. Anyone heavier than me would not be able to buckle up on that seat. It was also VERY cold. The people around me were all covered up in heavy jackets and hats. When I mentioned this to the crew,they treated me with disdain and she said they could do nothing. What a shame, this used to be a great airline."
Cons: "Rude crew members, broken seat belt, broken magazine holder, way too cold for comfort."
Cons: "The airplane was really old"
Pros: "Headphones, meal, and a charging USB location was provided. Flight attendants were very attentive to us."
Cons: "I didn't like on my way back home the second I walked in I felt nauseated due to the bad odor. Smelled like urine and athlete feet, I was sick to my stomach."
Pros: "The crew is always kind and helpful, and notorious airplane food was actually a joy! We were fed so well, we had leftovers for later. The individual screens had a good choice of movies and music. The Dreamliner 787 was quite nice. More legroom than other planes, an abundance of bathrooms and open space to stand up for a while (and rock your cranky toddler!)"
Cons: "I had no problems with the flight at all, but it wasn't as nice as the trip down. They both said they were Dreamliner 787s but on the way down the airplane was amazing! The overhead compartments were the best, lots of head and leg room, and the electronic tinting on the windows was really cool. The return trip was on the same kind of plane but it seemed just a bit older, with less room and older window shades. Not a huge deal, just not as amazing as the other plane."
Cons: "Landing was rough but then it is Mexico City"
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to bring oversized wooden bowl from Mexico City to LAX as carry-on and was forced to wrap it and check it in (extra $20), but was permitted to take it as carry-on on AeroMexico flight from Guatemala City to Mexico City. So there was definitely bad communication and inconsistency. Otherwise, OK flight."
Pros: "-Entertainment System was good, enough variety to cater to all ages -Seats were comfortable (enough) -Crew was nice -Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "-Food was awful. Didn't expect a 5 star meal, but it's hard to give a good review when the salad tasted like plastic and the lasagna they gave out was still raw -Pillows are too tiny, did not come on all flights (took 4 in total) -The earbuds were awful, extremely cheap and an uncomfortable fit -On my flight back from Mexico City to NY, my screen would keep turning off every 8 minutes, as if on Standby"
Pros: "Seats comfortable and entertainment was enough to keep us distracted for 8 hours."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Flight was delayed by several hours and the explanation from the pilot was that they were told to go to the wrong airport. Check in was a mess and took us more than 1.5 hours and they changed my booking without notification. Connecting through Mexico City was inconvenient, frantic and overwhelming. My luggage arrived with sticky oil all over it but there was no time to complain or clean it due to the delay in connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant, food was adequate. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight from SCL to Mexico City I had an awful seat, it did not decline more than an inch and was right next to the bathroom. I tried to change seats right after I checked in but was not able to and customer service could not help since I was in the 24 hour window."
Pros: "Wonderful crew Tasty food Quick boarding Clean plane"
Cons: "Limited leg space Baggage everywhere"
Pros: "smooth, great updated aircraft."
Cons: "our bags took almost and hour and a half to get on the conveyor belt. i missed my flight to monterrey"
Pros: "The service and experience were phenomenal"
