People jammed in the aisle to get off the plane. 1409 new york to fll."

Cons: "Nothing - it was the best travel experience I’ve ever had."
Cons: "Movies and shows was not working."
Cons: "My TV was working until they decided to do a reset. After the reset my TV went crazy and was clicking options on its own. I told the flight attendant and she was unhelpful. She offered a voucher, and when I asked for it at the end, she said she was too busy to give it to me. What?"
Pros: "The Entertainment was fine and I appreciated the Captain communicating with us that there would be bumps on the last part of the flight."
Cons: "This was the most unnerving, uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. I really do love Jetblue and I know that this particular flight doesn't define you. That being said I was sorry to have to have experienced this. Even sitting on the runway before taking off the ride was uncomfortable as we swerved our way to the take off position. The weather was nice and it felt so strange that were going back and forth as if the path was filled with sharp S-curves. Then the entire flight was bumpy as we went up and down and all around. I would say there was about 20 mins of smooth air the entire flight. Then there was the last 90 minutes which was absolutely terrifying. I know that the turbulence can't be helped but I do feel the Flight attendants were not very accommodating during it. I sat near the back and they just sat there and chit chatted about something they were meeting up to do later while people were up and about when the seat belt sign was on. Then there was a baby screaming for many hours and they never tried at all to help the parents or anything calm them. They mostly just sat in the back, complained it was bumpy and laughed about how people were agitated because of it. I found it to be so much more frustrating that in addition to the bumpy air, crying baby and passengers just roaming around we also had to deal with the attendants laughing about how uncomfortable we were. It was not what I have ever experienced before and I truly hope I never have to experience again on JetBlue."
Cons: "For 6 hour flight.... no drink, no snack , no food plus had to spend 25$ for check bag on an international flight."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable with tons of leg room. The entertainment options were nice, especially the real current releases on movies. The crew were nice and had good options for food and drinks for the flight."
Cons: "The departure gate got changed 3 different times which was kind of annoying but was announced promptly on the speaker along with multiple gmail confirmations of the changes."
Pros: "Free wifi, good movies, comfortable flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cost me $125 to check a 60 pound bag, poor planning on my part, but still crazy expensive"
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Plenty of room and very comfortable. Will be flying jetblue when available to where I am going!"
Cons: "The option to move to exit row if open without paying for the seat."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tv would skip between channels every 2 seconds and remote didn’t work nor did the touch screen, it was miserable. Also the seats lack utter lumbar support."
Pros: "definitely better than most domestic airlines. seat space (leg room) and entertainment in particular stood out. not being nickeled and dimed for carry on, small snacks and water was also nice."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight from Atlanta to lima was a mess, we did sleep in the airport, the personnel was unpolite, the did not give us hotel, food or nothing and answer us in bad manner, I will put this experience in my instagram and Facebook."
Cons: "Entertainment system at my seat was terrible - kept flipping by itself between movies, TV, music, map."
Pros: "The Dasani water bottles, the snacks, and the hot towels are all nice touches. I also like the positive, good-humored attitudes of the staff."

Cons: "No notification about gate change. Sound didn't work on the television set."
Pros: "Nothing but a little leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment except Spanish movies that you had to watch on their time... No internet like advertised... Unlimited snacks, what the one time they bring them you have to grab them all... One offer in a while 5 hour flight... No meal... Horrible in my opinion...I got a meal on an hour train ride for Christ sake... Won't choose jet blue for any long flight ever again"
Pros: "I didn't like much of anything EXCEPT THE FREE WIFI. While it's nice to have all the bells and whistles (free in flight TV/movies, snacks/beverages, etc.), the basics need to be met too - which they weren't."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane was delayed 1.5 hours for no good reason. Why have us sit on the plane in a cramped atmosphere instead of delaying it at the gate first until your ducks are in a row? Then the in-flight entertainment audio periodically cuts out, and they were resetting the TV system over 3 times. In addition, I had requested a price reduction when I booked the flight since JetBlue's website is buggy and the price went up $80 in front of my eyes while other people booked the seat I wanted, and they weren't willing to give me anything."
Pros: "I love JetBlue. I love everything about the airline. I love the free wifi and snacks. The seats are comfortable and I actually have room to lay my head down in economy. I love jet blue so much I am always willing to pay extra to fly with the airline. The customer service is superb and I have never had anything but an extremely possitive experience with this airline."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about at all. Overall a great airline"

Pros: "I love my non stop flight from JFK to SD. The flight was smooth, great movies/entertainment, snacks, and staff on the plane. I will definitely continue to fly Jet Blue!"
Cons: "Was a perfect flight for me. I was asked to check in my carry on bag but I didn't need to because I knew it would fit in the overhead bin and I found space for it on the plane. I recommend the plane staff should try to shuffle and move bags. Some passengers had bags in the overhead bin that could have been moved or put under the seat because they were small and taking up unecessary space."
Pros: "JetBlue never disappoints. Comfortable seating, friendly staff, easy boarding."

We are seniors, my husband is not going to leave me in a foreign country . My boarding pass was taken , after the search I was told to get on the plane. My husband was provided no information until it was his turn to board ,he was panicked... The airline should communicate with traveling companions the procedure ! I am an retired airline employee, we realize that airport security is not in your hands but communication would keep family members calm. We had a wonderful time in Columbia but this does nothing good for a Country that wants more Tourism."
Pros: "Great crew and airplane A320"
Cons: "Transfer to gate complicated. Have to take a bus. No instruction in English, only Spanish and the employee speaks so fast you cannot get it"

Pros: "Flight is short."
Cons: "The boarding process is really bad, the ground crew does not control the passengers. After passing security it's ok but the transfer process in Bogotá is really horrible... wait to take a bus and take you to a terminal and pass security again is annoying."

Pros: "Smooth flight with ample attention."
Cons: "Boarding time was delayed without reason."

Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."

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).

Pros: "Friendly crews."
Cons: "Crying girl whole flight"
Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"
Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."

Cons: "A very crowded flight"
Cons: "Food was really bad"
Pros: "It whas comftable"
Pros: "I thought we were going to die. There was tremendous turbulence. Crew did not advise if this was to be expected and if they are worried etc"

Cons: "The breakfast- scrambled eggs and little hotdogs. Relatively tasteless."
Pros: "Although the aircraft is dated, the seating was reasonably comfortable. We were fortunate in have a row of 3 seats for the two of us on the way home which made it feel significantly more spacious than outbound. The meals were appreciated and tasty."
Cons: "The entertainment system is dated due to the age of the aircraft. However, we brought our tablets which is more than adequate. We also had back up portable chargers since there is no onboard charging. Thus, going prepared prevented any issues or concerns."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "The attendants were in a bad mood and/or unhappy with their jobs. Short answers - not very friendly, but this isn't uncommon on Copa flights. I give them a "zero" on personality."
Cons: "Although I pre-coordinated bringing my service animal on the flight, copa denied service and my family was not allowed to board the plane. Copa stated my paperwork was not acceptable to Peru. I bought tickets on Avianca and traveled with my service animal and had no issues entering Peru."

Cons: "Everything was awesome keep doing the same great job thanks :)"

Cons: "7 hours late. It was supposed to leave at 7pm, it left the gate at 2:30 am !!! Zero sleep. Gave a $10 voucher"
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."
Cons: "I was in line 1.5 hours before my flight and was told that I had to take the next flight. There was even another passenger behind me who apparently made the flight. The lady behind the desk appeared to be junior staff and had to wait numerous time to ask her co-workers for help. By the time they helped her, she told me that it was too late to make the flight (even though I discovered later that the departure time was even postponed)! As a result, I arrived in Medellin 4-5 hours later than planned, causing me to miss a tour that I had scheduled for that afternoon, for which I was not refunded. First time using Copa Airlines was unfortunately not a good one."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "food and entertainment, check-in in Rio de Janeiro was awful."
Pros: "Lots of food during the flight."
Cons: "Plastic cups were really small. I would like a bottle of water."
Pros: "Flight always on time, staff are very friendly even with the language barrier sometimes."
Pros: "Crew were nice and polite"
Cons: "Business seats are less like Business and more like a better Premium Economy seat."
Pros: "Clean, courteous, respectful and comfortable!"
Cons: "Vegetarian meals were served with bread that was not fresh"
Pros: "Like comfort"
Cons: "Better Entertainment"
Pros: "I slept through the entire trip."
Pros: "Crew lovely. Thank you."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable cabin seat I’ve ever sat in. My back is now killing me."
Pros: "Is one time"
Pros: "Boarding, crew overall the flight was very good!"
Cons: "The movie catalog was old and not very good."
Pros: "Crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "Copa placed passangers in scattered seats even if they were together, we had to talk to other passangers to switch spots. The crew was unhelpful most of the time. Boarding was totally disorganized, it reminded me of a persian market trying to go though a single door, all at once. Security bands to form lines were obviously unavailable. The whole experience was like riding an old bus with no technology, and it’s entertainment was along these lines."
Pros: "My experience with Copa is that they are efficient yet customer friendly and changing planes in Panamá on trips to South America is usually quite convenient."
Cons: "Copa has a tendency to leave the "Fasten seatbelt" sign on for long periods of time, even when there is little to no turbulence. This makes it difficult to know when to move around which is unfortunate on a 6+ hour flight."
Pros: "Everything was good except taking off on time."
Cons: "We waited over 45 minutes inside the plane to take off. Supposedly because of air traffic congestion! Really? That was a really funny excuse, like we couldn’t see other planes take off consistently. I’m sorry Copa but PTY is not ATL or LAX were that can actually be an excuse. We ended up arriving late"
Pros: "Crew attention"
Cons: "Nothing for entretaiment"
Pros: "Crew was frieo"
Cons: "They ran out of the different food options and drinks. I"
Pros: "Airplanes seats"
Cons: "No dinner was served"
Pros: "No breakfast. Rude flight attendants. Someone got sick and they wouldn't let people move up front and instead blocked off the whole back of the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was very easy and fast"
Cons: "Our flight was in two (2) segments. One from Santiago, Chile to Panama City, Panama and, two from Panama City, Panama to Boston, MA USA. Our flight from Panama City, Panama to Boston, MA USA was cancelled due to snow. Not the Copa fault; however, rebooking the flight from Santiago back through Panama to Boston was very difficult even though we call the day prior after noticing the cancelled flight on the Copa website. We were successful; however, it took multiple calls and multiple delays on hold to make it happen. No e-mail confirmation was ever received; however, we were able to confirm the flight via the website. We were also unable to confirm the flight status on the website. Maybe it was a special flight or something, but from the customers view, it was discomforting."
Pros: "Vey accurate time"
Cons: "The web checking was a bit slow"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "No coffee :("
Pros: "Entertainment system was pretty good"
Cons: "2-hour check-in line in Santiago, with clueless employees Further 50-min delay of the arrival time for the flight"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked had to stay an extra day and take a night flight. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Nothing. I was at the airport for 5 hours, they overbooked the flight by 20 pleople. I had to get a cap voucher and call COPA for 4 hours the next day to try and get another flight. They eventually put me on an American flight."
Cons: "Everything. Poor customer service, unprofessional, and I did not get on the flight, and it took hours to rebook with them. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Good entertainment, decent food, it was very good all around!"
Cons: "The staff at Copa are courteous, and they helped with accomodations overnight in Panama."
