The Azul company is good. However, the Kayak service and assistance are terrible. Two flights without ticket information, delay and a mess.

The trip was ok even though extremely expensive. Azul markets its free wifi during the trip however it was not working. Everything elso ok.

I really like this airline I just wish that they would make arrangements with connecting flights when one is a few minutes late it’s ridiculous hold up your travel for what would’ve been about five minutes

Pros: "Everything"

Jetblue didn't take care of our flight, they didn't care that we were traveling with a 2 year and month old baby and they bounced us to Delta and almost didn't ride us. They don't care about families.

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Our flight out of Atlanta was delayed twice, and eventually cancelled due to mechanical problems - this caused us to miss our connecting flight from JFK to TLV. We had to rescheduled our flights (slow and convoluted route): Atlanta, Boston, Newark, Tel Aviv. We are presently in Boston."
Cons: "The food can be better."
Cons: "Poor movie selection/ purchase for outdated headphones required. No USB."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Told us when we got there. This is the first flight of the day. Shouldn’t have issues"
Cons: "Jetblue the best"
Pros: "Snacks. Crew."
Cons: "Not many movie options. Delayed flight"
Cons: "30 min delay"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Not much other than an easy boarding."
Cons: "I want to complain about my experience on your Flight #1206 from PDX to JFX the plane is severely outdated. It doesn’t even look like a JetBlue plane. My tv doesn’t work as did a few others on board. We were told by the steward they were already reset and they just don’t work. That’s really unacceptable and a-shame. I could of flown whatever airline if I wanted to be uncomfortable for a 5 hour flight. I’m very disappointed with this. I have tried to go through your website to voice the issue but conveniently it doesn’t process after I fill out the required information. Your Twitter help team offered me $15 credit for my inconvenience wow what a way to help a customer what’s that not even a checked bag on one of your flights. What a joke. Very unhappy and I fly JetBlue often. Sad."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."
Pros: "Smooth, great service, free wi fi that really works and lots of free snacks and water which nowadays may seem like a real perk."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "We got in ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The staff seemed tired and overworked. I got hit in the head by a flight attendant with the snack tray. An accident but still. Once we landed and we’re at the gate it took almost 40 min to get off the plane. That was ridiculous. Then after the long walk to baggage, luggage was still not there. Again we waited. Too much waiting after a long flight. I fly to NYC all the time and I’m usually in the city one hour after I land and it took 2 hours 15 min to get to Queens. Usually I have great flights with JetBlue. Last night was not the case. You get a C."
Pros: "Extra space seats. The crew. The food. The landing! Pre-board bag check at gate - asking for volunteers."
Cons: "The cabin temp was too cold. The entertainment was awful."
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "expensive, no food"
Pros: "Flight was over 40 minutes late."
Cons: "That the flight was forty minutes late...and the lady at the desk couldn't speak understandable English...it makes you look bad."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and comfortable and everything went official"
Cons: "The film did not work"
Pros: "Great service from the crew and in flight snacks and entertaininment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but I had many uodates and snacks were provided."
Pros: "I got to sleep the whole flight. I was really tired. It was a late flight and was very quiet and comfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment was great! Great selection of movies!"
Cons: "The earbuds are terrible, I personally don't do well with that style - i would do research to see what the most universal type head phones are used because these were the worst. Also the control to my entertainment was on the right side, where the middle person kept changing my channels and volume. I would have liked for it to be on maybe the left side where no one else could touch it. (I sat at a window seat) The guy next to me fell asleep and so it was super hard to get to my controller (although there is one on the computer, he was still messing with it with his elbow)."
Pros: "The on board crew was so accommodating. There was a screaming baby on board and one of the stewardesses did her best to make the baby stop crying. But Jose was the staff member that was closest to my seat and he was amazing! Funny, pleasant, great customer service! He made the difference in what could have been the plane ride from hell. Thank you Jose!!"
Cons: "When I booked my trip, I picked out seats but when I checked in, there was no seat on my boarding pass. So when I went to the gate they had my name on the top of the list and gave me a new boarding pass with a seat. When I got to that seat, someone was already sitting in that seat and when I looked at the boarding pass, it wasn't even my name that was on it. The stewardess found me another seat in row 24. Then when the tv did not work the whole flight. On top of that there was a screaming child most of the flight, which of course I saw not the fault of anyone. Needless to say I'm happy to be home"
Pros: "Ek 202"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled 4hrs after being boarded at JFK. We understand that such things happen. It’s the situation and handling after was very unprofessional. we were told to collect our bags and go to check in counter and collect our next bookings but instead after collecting check ins we were just given meal ticket and hotel address and given a toll free number to call which is very inappropriate. It should become your responsibility to rebook ya but not leaving it on us to call some number and wait. Though I called and I was told that I was not deboarded to rebook me. For which I tried to go and find an Emirates personnel who refused to talk to the Emirates guy on phone to explain and would just refuse to talk to me. Imagine yourself carrying two check ins and a carry one and running around just to try to get somebody to answer. Mr. Munit on phone was kind enough to be on talk and hold for about 40mins with me. It still ended up unable to book at that time. I was going to India for two day period and my one day had to be spent over in JFK. As humans it’s not the technical difficulty that was an issues it’s the Emirates crews at jfk inability to properly respond and answer arrogantly was the issue. One person instead of answering the questions of an old man was very rude and just blubbered “can’t you just listen to me” that was very inappropriate. It should be her responsibility to listen first. I have always flew Emirates and inflight crew are always very patient and good. This experience makes me think otherwise."
Pros: "The crew and the actual plane ride are always great. Comfortable seats, friendly staff, and I am so grateful for the free wifi."
Cons: "Delays! Jet Blue seems to always have some type of issues with their planes which cause delays. I understand that things happen, but I'm not the only one who has been affected by these delays. I had to wait over four hours from my original departure time, it's ridiculous. The only positive is that Jet Blue does go out of their way to compensate us for our troubles, but I would be so much happier if my flight came and left at their appropriate time."
Pros: "I like only 1 thing wi - fi is working good."
Cons: "I don’t like anything. It’s a worse airline ever i take I would like to suggest never ever fly with jet blue . I go through so many problems so rude employees working at help desk . Especially steven he said he is supervisor then he says he is only shift leader instead of helping he just talking so mean guy . This is really a big story i try to put in small words ...i fly with them on march 2nd LAX to JFK my finale destination is amritsar in India because of their fault i miss my next flight . The lady help me in morning she is very mean i wanna talk to supervisor she say I’m supervisor but she is only shift leader.i forgot her name . When steven told me he is supervisor i was like"
Pros: "The extra room. The staff was friendly."
Cons: "There could be additional snacks available especially on a flight that’s over 3 hrs. I had a short lay over in JFK and wasn’t able to buy a meal and very limited snacks on board so I left home 2:00 to be early and arrived at my destination at 2:30pm with only chips to eat"
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "People were being inconsiderate towards one another and staff did not care to diffuse the situations."
Pros: "The one thing I liked was the expedited service I got because my brother needed a wheelchair. The comfort of the plane was really nice as well, one of the best flights I had in a while."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was how my flight got cancelled and the only flight I was able to get was 4 days later. So I was stuck in the Dominican Republic for a total of two weeks!! I had to miss another weekend at work which made me lose a lot of money since I’m a barber and lost some one my clientele. On top of my flight being cancelled it also got delayed again but only by 30 minutes so I wasn’t so upset. When it came to the boarding, that had to be the slowest boarding I’ve went through. The gate seemed very behind on the technology and that caused the workers to work even slower. At times they had to step away and go on their monitor to fix something out so it took an extra 30 minutes before I even got into my seat, and I was sitting in row 6 of the plane. Then after everyone was seated the flight got held back an extra half hour because a lady wanted to file a complaint saying that she got pushed and ended up being the only person that got kicked off the flight so she did it all for nothing. So with everything happening, our flight got delayed an hour and a half. Very disappointed.."
Cons: "I waited three days for a flight to Portland, Maine. My first flight was cancelled due to weather. The next two days the same flight was cancelled again. When it did go, it was three hours late. Our flight ended up leaving at 3:00am. This is all excusable due to weather but I also lost my premium sat. The only seats available were the middle seats. I had booked early and had a great fee-free seat. I had to pay $75 to get a window seat. On the 1st leg of the trip they were 3 hours late coming out of Portland. I'm not flying JetBlue anymore. There are cheaper flights that fly during the day."
Pros: "Those jetblue flights have leg room even in economy. I'm 6'3. I'm thankful."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines."
Cons: "The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on."
Cons: "Movies didn't work and we were one hour delayed on the runway."
Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."
Pros: "We pulled out a few min early and arrived 40 min early! Was great. Very smooth trip. Wifi very good compared to other airlines."
Cons: "A woman at the gate made me check my bag even though I know it fits in the overhead compartment because I do it all the time. We landed late and I had planned on not having to wait for luggage, so this was disappointing."
Pros: "Friendly, hospitable & attentive staff. Lots of room! Good communication."
Cons: "Smaller selection of food options on flight."
Cons: "I recently flew from Washington Dulles to NYC John F. Kennedy. Throughout the day I received text messages and emails stating that my flight was delayed. I therefore delayed my arrival at the airport accordingly. I arrived at the ticket counter at 8:40pm (50 minutes prior to the new departure time) of 9:30. I was not concerned as the security line was 1 min long. When I arrived at the ticket counter, no JetBlue representative was there. I was finally able to find someone, but he turned me away, stating that the ticket counter was closed as there was no way to check any bags. He told me that despite getting emails telling me that the flight was delayed, it was my responsibility to get there 40 min prior to the original departure time to be able to check my bags. Then why send the delay messages at all? He also stated that "everyone else seemed to be there, it was just me" I told him that I didn't care, as I made it 50 minutes before my departure time. I had to stay in DC for the night and wake up at 4 am to be on the next flight. I don't understand why this happened and will avoid future JetBlue flights as possible."
Pros: "Free wifi when I got my bags and was headed out of the airport. I had to order an uber to the wifi helped"
Pros: "leaving Bermuda for a few days with my wife. What's not to like about that???"
Cons: "Pilot came in quite hot at JFK. Other customers said the same thing. Fair amount of turbulence, but there isn't much that the pilot can do with that."

Traveling Avianca was the worst experience especially on my return flight from bogato Colombia where I missed my flight because there was no gate number on the ticket and by the time we found out where to go which was through check in again where we were stuck on a huge line. First time I ever had to go thru check in on a connecting flight. Ended up having to by 6 tickets back to NY which is not right.

Pros: "Service is terrible on my way to Peru the entertainment unit in front of me did not work I am formed SteFf but all they could say was they would help me but we never return very disappointed returning from Peru our plane got stuck in Bogotá Columbia we’re trapped inside the plane For three hours with no air-conditioning when we finally disembarked they offered us to stay in a hotel but the voucher process also took a very long time we ended up going to the hotel at 3 o’clock in the morning in order to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning for the return flight very disappointed with that flight of Avianca again or would I would not recommend Avianca to anyone"
Cons: "Hire competent employees"
Cons: "For that size of airplane basing on the fact that it was an international flight not having a USB port or any power source by the seats it’s ridiculous. The boarding process was a nightmare, very disorganized the crew members starting boarding group by group just using ONE of the two entrances available because of it the line to board the plan occupied almost 2 boarding gates. I couldn’t reclaim my seat because it was broke, the quality of the food was very mediocre, crew members attitude were upsetting... uncaring and ignoring passengers call. Another filthy plain ... I had 4 flights with avianca between 2 International fights and 2 national connections, all flights were terrible! The worse part is I probably could’ve flight more comfortable for less money or at least get what I paid for."
Pros: "Delayed for more than half hour"
Cons: "More aircraft"
Cons: "Plane was half empty and not allowed to move to unused seats. Excuse was something about weight distribution. Sounded like a very bad excuse."
Pros: "We have never flown avianca before, and I have to say this was an amazing experience! I would totally fly avianca again! The crew and all the attention they give. The elegance, the professionalism all extraordinary! We highly recommend!"
Cons: "Staff’s ability to speak English could improve."
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad, but Avianca used to give out more refreshments multiple times during the flight . Now they just give out water."
Cons: "More comfortable seat. Leg room was very limited compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Lounge bogota"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Flat seat in business"
Cons: "2:30 hrs delay due to technical, not much info provided unless you ask , outdated movie list and entertainment"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "We wait like 40 minutes to take off"
Cons: "The remote control in one of our seats didn't work"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the selection of entertainment was great."
Cons: "This plane was not made for tall people. It felt very cramped and I felt like I had no room."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Airline doesn’t tell you until 5 minutes before takeoff that you have to download their app to use their WiFi service . Pilot tells us we’ll be landing 5 minutes before 10 in NY but in fact we don’t land until 10:30 with no explanation Very old and outdated plane. Just terrible . hope I don’t fly this airline again ."
Pros: "Food is definitely better, but too small"
Cons: "Flight attendant holding us so first class could leave the plane first."
Cons: "My flight was sunday april 29 at 10:49 pm and was cancelled, had to wait until today at 2 pm to finally take my flight"
Cons: "Terrible flight was delayed baggage was missing TVs didn’t work, bad customer service overall not a great experience."
Cons: "On Feb 26th we had a flight leaving Bogota back to NYC, and at the gate, we found out our flight would not be operated by Avianca, but by a Spanish carrier called WAMOS. Wamos airlines does not offer in-flight entertainment. It offers an app that you can download on your mobile device prior the flight, even though there are no plugs inside the plane and no fully reclining seats. This change is being caused by an ongoing strike action by some of their own pilots and this has been regarded with absolute no consideration from Avianca to its costumers. At the airport we talked to 3 different customer services employees, all giving us different versions of the story and no clear answers. One employee told us that we MAY have a possibility of reimbursement and another one that we could stay in a hotel and catch another flight the next day (which was not an option for us) There was no advance warning about this change to me (not even during check-in) Found out later some passengers gotten an email informing about this change, but not all of them. Staff didn't know anything about this flight. The gate staff only informed passengers of the change, after I complained, and kept insisting that the airplanes were the same, when clearly it was not the same quality, in amenities and service on board. There were big delays and a mess with seat assignments. Many customers traveling together with separated seats and of course, delays in departure caused by the mess that Avianca caused. Just to be clear. what Avianca is doing is stealing the money that we paid for a specific flight, to voluntary change us to a much less inferior flight, with absolutely no consideration and no compensations."
Pros: "A+++"
Cons: "0"
Pros: "Nothing special airline"
Cons: "Poor quality for the price old plane"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The food is just okay but at least they don’t make you pay for it"
Cons: "Space between chairs was nonexistent. Everything was simply to small. They took 1 hour to took off without telling us why."
Cons: "Due to strike airline was changed last minute and new aircraft was 50 seats short. Although we had booked our flight with more than 5 months of anticipation my aunt, grandma, and cousin we told that the flight was overbooked and that they had to wait another 8 hrs until next flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough movie choices."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by at least 2 hours fell asleep on airport floor"
Pros: "I liked the free checked bag, the free wine, the way the seats pushed back, and the cup holder."
Cons: "I don't know why dinner was served on an overnight flight. Who eats dinner at 12:30 pm? It also kept the lights on so it was harder to sleep."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarded and left an hour late with no apology or explanatjon"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "LA PELICULA QUE ME VI ESTABA BUENA."
Cons: "NO PUDE USAR LA COBIJA DE AVIANCA PORQUE TENIA UN OLOR ESPANTOSO ASI COMO LA DE MI ACOMPANANTE, EL AVION ESTABA HELADO Y NO PUDE USARLA POR CULPA DE AVIANCA. LA COMIDA ES POCA Y DESAGRADABLE. HABIA UNA AZAFATA CON UN CARACTER TERRIBLE,MALGENIADA Y PARA NADA AMABLE A LA HORA DE AYUDAR O ATENDER A LOS PASAJEROS,DABA MIEDO HABLARLE. A MI ME ACOMODARON DONDE SE LES DIO LA GANA, NO DONDE ESTABA SUPUESTA A SENTARME PORQUE SUBIERON DE ULTIMAS A UNA PERSONA EN SILLA DE RUEDAS Y ME TUVIERON QUE INCOMODAR PARA DARLE LA SILLA A EL. ME PARECE QUE TIENEN QUE DARLES OTRAS SILLAS A ELLOS. ES MUY INCOMODO EL ASIENTO. MUY CARO PARA TAN POCA COSA DE AVION. ES MEJOR American Airlines."
Pros: "Excellent service, never any problems"
Pros: "The movies"
Pros: "No response given."
Cons: "After all these connecting flights especially after being delayed in Cali, the flight in Bogota was delayed and the Avianca crew did not announce it. After realizing it was time for boarding according to the time that I needed to be at the gate from my ticket, that's when people were realizing there was an issue. Once I got to the podium and handed my tickets the staff handed a voucher. There wasn't a hello, we're sorry for the inconvenience or the reason why the flight was delayed 2 hours. I had to ask them why what happened, what is the voucher for, how does it work, what time we were expected to be at the gate. The staff made everyone aware that we needed to be at the gate at 4pm so we can depart at 445pm. The food was okay and the staff looked a little annoyed when serving drinks. I shouldn't say all of the crew but from the back half of the plane the staff looked annoyed if not bothered. Didn't get to NYC until 12am, but had to wait on the runway for an additional 20 minutes. Again no communication on what was going on."
Pros: "The personal at the plane was very attentive."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and they were still able to serve me even though I only spoke English"
Cons: "My entertainment screen was broken (did not work at all) Loud kids yelling throughout the 6 hour flight made it impossible to sleep or even relax. No one was willing to do anything about it (at least try!)"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We had a two hour delay inside the airplane without air conditioning. This delay risked my next flights (connections). Everything inside the airplane is old and terribly maintained."
Pros: "Good take off, landing, mostly comfortable."
Cons: "Needs food that isn't ham."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "I slept all my way to NY"
Pros: "Everything except how very little food is served"
Cons: "Nor enough food and drink, like water and coffee etc"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, Airline had many movies to choose from, crew was comforting. Flights were on time."
Cons: "I know it's not the only airline but the food really was ok but not satisfying at all. My luck my seat the audio was somewhat defective but still mostly audible."
Cons: "I took two separate flights with Avianca three months apart from NY to Ecuador. BOTH times the airline had delays of over 3 hours. The first time the connecting flight was canceled and all of us passengers were running around the airport trying to find out where to go. The new flight didn't leave until much later that night. Three months later, the connecting flight back to new York was delayed from 3pm to after 6pm and had a gate change without notification by the airline to the waiting passengers. I was not the only one upset by this. We were not compensated in any way for these delays. Quality of service seems to not be high on their list of priorities at all. I WILL NEVER fly Avianca again and I want at least a partial refund! I strongly suggest going with a competitor if you can."
Pros: "everything, great service."
Pros: "Nice plane with good entertainment options"
Cons: "No collation in a 2h30 flight"
Pros: "Staff was nice, and good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Last minute gate change, unorganized, delayed take off."
Pros: "The confort and service"
Pros: "Every thing was perfect"
Pros: "the flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "boarding was a complete disaster. the lady at the counter gave me all wrong information. the random screening was done very rudely. not a single staff spoke a word of English which is unacceptable for an international flight. the food albeit not significant after the horrendous boarding experience was terrible, and I had to ask several times for water. Further, for the flight to bogotá, we had called and spent a lot of time on the phone to reserve seats, which were then all wrong once we checked in at the airport. what was the point."
Pros: "Friendly and on time!"

One of the crew member weren’t to pleasant

The fly was delayed one hour for A/C problems, then after being on the road to take off, we went back to terminal secondary to a passenger problem. Last but not least I was first class and my sit was so uncomfortable, I landed with headaches

My seat next to the emergency exit could not be reclined. The meal was just fruit and sandwiches. I appreciated the fresh fruit but the sandwiches were mediocre.

Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "Got here early!"

Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Older aircraft"
Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing"
Pros: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Cons: "Virgin Atlantic has had better days. Living off of a long gone reputation. Great staff but old and worn out planes. Code sharing has done them no favors!"
Cons: "Bigger personal space"
Pros: "Helpful"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No food was served"
Cons: "Additude of some of the crew. After a long talked off delay ,Rod would not give me a glass of water to take my evening medicines."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Pros: "Food was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 40 minutes. We could hardly catch connecting flight"
Pros: "Boardin process was Ok"
Cons: "Due to several issues we were delayed in 3,5 hours"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Stinky, dirty cabin. No running water in the bathrooms. Delays on the tarmac."
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment Poor. Not to many movie for 14 hours trip"
Cons: "The female flight attendant needs an attitude adjustment. She behaved as though she was doing a favor"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants on this flight."
Cons: "No wifi, no leg room"
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Pros: "Delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Pros: "No hubo retraso y salió todo el vuelo a tiempo. El personal fue atento."
Cons: "El espacio entre asientos es mínimo y es súper incómodo. La experiencia fue de incomodidad."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "The flight attendant. Lovely and professional."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Cons: "small aisles and space in the seats. me and my wife were seated"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class since my flight was overbooked and I had to miss my original flight"
Cons: "Security for traveling to US is a very time consuming with long lines and in my mind useless process which does not make me feel any more secure - just wasting time and resources."
Cons: "I understand delays happen, but Delta delayed the flight significantly and only informed customers around the time they had arrived at the airport - especially for an early morning flight, where you are counting on being able to sleep on the plane ASAP, that is absolute hell. If they had messaged even 30 mins earlier, we could have rescheduled our cab and slept at the hotel given we were on 2 hours sleep. We received the text 3 minutes before we arrived at the airport and tried to sleep on benches as the front desk kept delaying the boarding time by 20 minutes 4 times, each time exactly at the previously extended ETD, which is far more frustrating than if they had just extended it once by 80 minutes so we could legitimately relax."
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"

Excellent service!

Wis there was more leg room for tall persons like myself.

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The seat was decent"
Cons: "A little late for departure, still loved it"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew very nice."
Cons: "There is a second x-ray security at the gate. We lost over $20 of water because we had to throw it out. Wish they had told us at check-in NOT to buy any water and wish there were a place to buy next to the gate - very thirsty!"
Pros: "They closed the flight 30 minutes before the departure hour."
Pros: "flight was non stop and arrived more or less on time."
Cons: "boarding in PTY was awful--total chaos. Seat was uncomfortable meal was mediocre"
Cons: "On my way to Colombia- I was made to pay $40 to check my skateboard, even though I was allowed to carry it onto the plane from the US to Panama. On the way back I was told that I could bring it on the plane if I took the wheels off. I did. They did not allow me, and made me check it anyway."
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."
Cons: "They need offer other options food."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "The information provided prior to the flight and online booking experience."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants Rude gate / entry attendants No guidance was given to passengers prior to boarding regarding how long it would be until boarding so everyone was just standing around pushing toward the doors. Long, unorganized boarding process. Attendants just allowed everyone to gather in front of the doors so rude passengers pushed their way to the front and cut the "line." No tvs in the seats. I am vegetarian and was not given a vegetarian option! Very Inconsiderate of this airline. Even worse, the flight attendant basically told me that it was my fault because I didn't ask for one in advance. Extremely poor customer service! Had I been asked, I would have requested a vegetarian meal but I did not see that option when booking."
Pros: "The crewman were extremely friendly, very professional team!"
Pros: "Demora para subir al avión"
Cons: "Demora para subir al avión"
Pros: "The crew was friendly on all 4 legs of my trip. The short flight from PCY to BOG was fine."

Cons: "Did not like the food"
Cons: "There is not entertaiment. The food could be better"
Pros: "Everything was very quick"

Pros: "The crew was attentive Ontime"

Pros: "Comfortable and short"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no apology, service on board was terrible and unfriendly. Had to run to get to connecting flight. No help from airline staff. Avoid Copa at all costs. Don't fly Copa!"
Pros: "You manage a very short layover between flights via Panama City and the flights were on time both of the ways that I had flown. This is a great thing, thank you."
Cons: "One more water/wine/snack service on the 5+ hour flight from Panama City to New York would have left the passengers less parched."
Pros: "To do bien To do muy. Muy Bueno"
Cons: "To do"
Pros: "Overall comfort and attentiveness of staff is hard to beat elsewhere."
Cons: "Everything was fine with this trip;"
Pros: "EVERything was perfect. The only thig is to uodate the movies selection. Def will travel again with copa"
Pros: "An airline that still allows 2 free bags, gives you a full meal even early morning flights. Definitely will travel with Cops again."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Excellent service from beginning to the end awesome job"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "The fact that you do not allow water in the waiting area at the gate after passing the first security check is utterly ridiculous! if you want to enforce that policy you should provide free water at the gate. it was overheated and crowded to the brim and my wife went to get water after having gone through the second security check. She paid $10 for 2 bottles of water at the stand just before the gate and when she tried to come in again they did not allow her to go through... really a ridiculous situation!"
Cons: "Not only were we not told in advance that we'd have to go through security again in order to sit in the gate area, but we weren't allowed to bring in beverages we bought right next to the gate and there was no bathroom in the area we were being held before we were boarded. You'd have to go through security again. Also, the security guard accused my tall, black, injured, elderly father of being suspicious because he was sweating in spite of the fact that she wouldn't let him drink water unless he left the gate area even though he was injured. Never flying Copa again and never going to Panama again, not even for a layover."
Pros: "I liked the seats, drinks and food."
Cons: "I would have loved to have a veterinarian option."
Cons: "I did not like those seat in the middle . They are very"
Pros: "arrived on time clean restrooms"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat mediocre meal"

Cons: "Boarding took a bit longer than usual, passengers didn´t help much today."
Pros: "We liked everything. It was short but great."
Pros: "Flying business class for significant less money from Rio to NYC/JFK."
Cons: "The seats are 'old style' business class, not fully flat sleepers. On a very flight like Rio to Panama City I missed the the flat sleepers you get on wide body aircraft. On the Panama to JFK flight, the crew was less friendly, while on the Rio to Panama flight the crrew was excellent and very friendly."
Pros: "Timely, organized and food was served in this very short flight"
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "No vegetarian options"
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly, one of the friendlier crews I've flown with lately. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Seats comfortable, but planes are old and outdated"
Pros: "Excellent. COPA always excels at customer service and comfortability. Some food as well, which is nice for such a short flight."
Pros: "it was ok."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The flight was on time and enjoyable."
Cons: "no vegetarian options"
Cons: "Although the airline knew about the delays it decided to make people wait inside the airplane for almost 4 hours. That was insane! I refer to this specific situation with such dislike because I had friends traveling at the exact same time as us through a different airline whom didnt let the people aboard the plane until climate warnings were cleared. It was the proper thing to do! I been in others flights in which weather conditions dont allowed to depart on time and people is not allowed to go on board until the conditions are better. No even a cup of water was offered during this stressful time, and the seatbelt sign was on the whole time. It was horribly handled!!!"
Cons: "On top of what happened with the flight from NY to Panama the situation wasnt handle any better for the conexion. There was not priority conection to the inmediate following flight to Bogota. We had to wait four more hours to go to Bogota. Also the sits were accomodated terribly for me (I can understand they had to use what was available) but if Im traveling with a minor the airline should make sure the child is seated next or near me. Even though, I understood it was a detail that simply they did not control correctly, I requested to two flight attendants to please fix the problem for me, but I was totally ignored by both. When I told them a second time, they said to me there was nothing they can do. But coincidencially, right after I was told, he sat one passanger whom have not seat assigned, right in front of me on the emergency exit. The attendant said minors cant go there which is true, but I would have seated there, and my daughter on the sit that I was which was right behind me. That plus another rude encounter with one of the flight attendants when I was getting into the plane made of my experience with Copa Airlines my first and only trip with them. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
