Cons: "Make 1st class cheaper and give free wifi!"
Pros: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "Lot of turbulence. Provided videos/entertainment without providing headphones"
Pros: "Great crew, snacks, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Can't tell how the flight was because missed connecting flight from LAX to SJC because Westjet from YYZ to LAX had a mechanical issue. They end up replacing a tire which caused a 1.5 hr flight delay"
Cons: "Not delay the flight for 3+ hours"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Pros: "Was gud"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."
Pros: "Comfy seats, quick service."
Cons: "If you are in Zone 3 or 4 you pretty much have to check in your bag back there is no more room. Which I don’t understand and is highly incovienent."
Pros: "Service by the Delta team"
Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"
Pros: "great service, easy to get on and off, snack options and drinks were all great"
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"
Pros: "Service; security gate in NY close to departure gate."
Cons: "Arrival Gate in San Jose far from exit."
Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."
Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."
Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"
Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."
Pros: "As always, the crew and amenities were first rate."
Cons: "We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"
Pros: "No vegetarian options in first class.. and go go wouldn5 hook up. Flight was an hour late...but that was ok."
Cons: "The pilot did a nice job of flying in and banking so we could see the view.."
Cons: "They delayed the flight for 11 hours and did let anyone know until after 4 hours of waiting and then the gate number for the new flight was wrong"
Pros: "Almonds"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Fast and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv but understanding"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."
Cons: "Smooth"
Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."
Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"
Pros: "Hassle free left on time arrived early San Jose nice airport and drive to red wood city picturesque Staff friendly and cookies great"
Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"
Cons: "A flight of four hours should have decent food. Too short connection times and inconsistent restaurants in the airports often leave me very hungry. Give us real healthy food onboard."
Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."
Cons: "No trash bag in my seat for puking or bubblegum"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"

Crew were eating “really” good food like salad etc in seats visible to passengers all during the flight. Had to ask for additional beverages besides one that came with the meal

The entertainment was a bit limited considering how long of a flight we had. The crew was excellent

Pros: "Everything has gone very well."
Cons: "The food (egg) made me get a little bit sick but it wasn’t a big deal."
Cons: "Just like every other airline, small seats."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable but other than that it was wonderful!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was acceptable. Really comfortable flight."
Cons: "Entertainment could have been better. Tvs per seat to wAtch movies what we want"
Pros: "There was actually food on this very short flight! I liked that. Also I didn't have to pay to pick a seat upon check-in which was nice."
Cons: "The food was decent but my return flight was better."
Pros: "The entertainment options. Liked the sandwich as well"
Cons: "The seats could be a bit more comfortable, and adding veggies to their sandwiches"
Cons: "I was so tired... slept the whole flight. No one bothered me for even a bit. Recovering!"
Cons: "Had an issue with my passport and the manager at the check in counter was rude and not helpful."
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Comfort"
Pros: "Great value for price!!! Food was mediocre, but isn’t all airline food mediocre?? Staff was friendly and spoke many different languages to accommodate all of us."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little old and needing replaced. Would have been nice to have a more comfortable seat for an overnight international flight."
Pros: "super friendly crew and excellent service"
Cons: "seats that go fully flat in business class"
Pros: "The crew and the comfort..."
Cons: "Enough food options. Only one option available."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very bad service, delays, luggage is on a different flight. Absolutely terrible airline"
Cons: "The crew on this particular flight was not up to par with the previous KLM crew standards. From the boarding, which they started letting economy class before elderly people and Skypriority to the lack of at least a smile from the crew serving you. Copa please train your crew. After we are the client"
Pros: "No like"
Cons: "the will of the counter attendant of the chekin, he did not help me at all"
Pros: "Much better than other airlines. Food was great (taking into consideration it is plane food), web checkin is very simple and organized boarding."
Pros: "The crew was OK. Seat comfortable."
Cons: "Copa in general is good."
Pros: "The food and beverage were very good"
Pros: "I really liked the crew"
Cons: "The entertainment was really poor, I didn’t have many options. In the second flight, it didn’t have a monitor, so you’d have to watch things on your devices, but to do so, you needed the company app installed in your device before, which I thought it was inconvenient."
Pros: "It was a nice and short flight. The food given to us was quite good, even though it was shorter than 2 hours."
Cons: "Seats very small."
Cons: "No fue informado que el asiento 10 no reclinaba ."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Travel was cancelled by travel agency. Never received notification until travel day."
Pros: "copa is always on time"
Cons: "food quality is low drinks are 'rationed'"
Cons: "I was promised an emergency exit seat and... I got the row after the exit row... most annoying."
Cons: "This airline has no concept of service. We were treated poorly by the ground personell as well as the board crew. Also, the airport in Panama is very bad. It's expensive and the food and beverage offering is limited. Avoid!"
Cons: "The United plane was coming in right at the time copa departed. The copa plane sat there for half hour with door closed. Could have made connection. Then COpa put me on a flight to Buenos Aires which is six hours away from Rosario and did not provide any connection from Buenos Aires to Rosario. Don’t take this flight, the 1 hr connection time from IAH to Panama to Rosario is not enough time to allow for delays and COpa is a BAD partner to United as it refuses to wait for the United flight to arrive."
Pros: "Atendimento no aeroporto, embarque, entretenimento e comida."
Cons: "Pontos a melhorar: poderia ter cobertor e travesseiro para todos e as poltronas serem um pouco mais confortáveis."
Pros: "Glad I flew with this airline. Had my doubts at first but they were all erased with this very friendly and hassle free experience."
Pros: "Direct flight to Brazil"

Cons: "Food is not pleased and not very comfortable."
Cons: "No outlets"
Pros: "I liked everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Is there anything good with copa?"
Cons: "A business class that is worse than others economy plus, small planes, limited entertainment offering"
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "Charly was the best flight attendant ever!"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Small airplane with no updated entertainment system"
Cons: "Service is terrible, flight attendants don't seem to be very professional. Snack was terrible quality (two pieces of cheese and 6 grapes), breakfast was bad too. Quality of wine was bad, no Champagne, cheap Cava Entertainment system outdated, seat not very comfortable."
Pros: "El vuelo fue tranquilo tanto el despegue como la llegada es la primera vez que viajo en Copa, me gusto casi todo solo la atención fue pésima."
Cons: "El personal de vuelo,nada atentos ni cordiales con los pasajeros,después todo me pareció bueno lo del entretenimiento es entendible no todos los aviones tienen pantallas individuales lo comprendo pero la atención me pareció lo más deficiente,el personal para nada atento."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival Friendly and accommodating staff"
Cons: "Old plane. No charging USB connectors"
Pros: "I LOVE Copa!"
Cons: "It was unfortunate to show up at Newark to find out that the flight to Panama was on United. I prefer not to fly on United and did not like the service provided. My connection in Panama on Copa was much better!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food."
Cons: "AC in the plane didn't work on the ground (during boarding and taking off). It had been extremely hot and sweaty before we took off. Cheap earphones provide very bad quality of sound. I barely could hear anything. I had to use my personal earphones."
Cons: "I traveled with my family from San Francisco to Brazil We were told that we should get the Yellow Fever vaccine even before we leave San Francisco. We called Copa and every time each of us talked to Copa we were given a different instruction. Very confusing and stressful. We decided not to get the vaccination, taking into consideration the cost of it, $159.00 for each family member!!!"
Cons: "I will start off by saying that I usually LOVE Copa Airlines and have a wonderful experience. This flight had too many things go wrong for me to ignore. 1) The check in line up took exceptionally long even though there were many staff at the booth. 2) As people were boarding, one of the staff was handing out headphones as people were still attempting to navigate to their seat. The timing seemed very inappropriate and even in the way for new passengers. 3) My boyfriends carry on bag is larger than a small backpack, but smaller than a standard carry on bag. As he was boarding, he went to put his bag in the overhead compartment. My boyfriend is well over 6 feet and the Copa staff was insisting we put the bag at my boyfriends feet as his bag was not as large as others. We pay the same as the other passengers and deserve comfort too! Especially for my tall boyfriend who even in the largest of seats has a difficult time on planes. 4) The plane did not have individual entertainment units, which does not help on a 6+ hour flight. 5) I was VERY cold and asked for blanket on various occasions, and even offered to pay for one, but there was not on board, even though, as I exited I saw unopened ones in first class."
Cons: "I bought a ticket economy plus but cops gave economy seat. I said several times that I purchase economy plus but cops ignored it. It is so bad and rude."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "The service on board, the food and the entertainment were all wonderful. I would definitely use them again on my future trips."
Pros: "Food and beverage service. Blanket & attention of staff...helpful. Free bags check."
Cons: "Pilot talked to fast...could never understand his announcements."
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Cons: "Almost everything. This airline charges normal fees and offers low cost service. Very bad"
Cons: "The food ."
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I'm not sure since I slept through most of the 90 minute flight, which is a good sign, I guess. It was an older plane with no entertainment system, but I hate those things, so fine by me. I missed the food this time around, but it was a crappy cold sandwich when I took the same flight a few weeks earlier, but it's a 90 minute flight, so what do you expect?"
Cons: "The boarding process was pointless While this is a quirk of the airport, the airline should change their procedure for this scenario. LATAM splits passengers into different groups: first class, special needs, priority because you paid, everybody else. That's fine at most airports. At Santiago's airport, however, passengers ride a bus from the gate to the plane, mixing up all the groups on the bus, so what's the point? Worse, special needs passengers were the first to get on the bus, but end up last to get off screwing over the elderly and those with small children. What a system!"
Cons: "The stewards were rude and they overbooked the flight. These arrived at the gate at 6:15 and were told we could not board our plane which was to take off at 7:30. Absolute nonsense."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "The snack was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over one hour and a half and nobody could tell us why"
Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"
Pros: "Plane was clean, videos worked well. Cabin attendants were gracious and spoke excellent English. Food was good."
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Pros: "Excellent boarding, something that all the airlines should do: starting boarding from the back of the plain. Boarding is much faster."
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."
Pros: "The whole flight went smoothly and I really have no complaints about the flight itself."
Cons: "When I arrived, my luggage did not make the connecting flight. It was tracked down and hopefully will make it to me soon but you can see how it’s inconvenient. The first leg of my flight was operated by Wamos, though it was a LATAM flight. I know that this is something that happens often for all sorts of reasons, however I can’t help but think it had something to do with the transition of my luggage from one flight to the next. My flights home are similar ( One leg of it being operated by another airline) and needless to say I’m a bit nervous about that."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fly us never proactively contacted us about the LATAM flight change so we missed this flight. LATAM stepped up and paid for another two flights to get us back to Austin. No thanks to Flyus, whom we will never book with again. Their customer support was a joke! Jeff"
Cons: "They lost my bag and I had to wait a full day to get it back."
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."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "I left a scarf on the plain when we landed in NY. And a lamd team member, Kelly, went out of her way to get it back for me right at the airport, and I did!!!! So helpful and efficient and curtious!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was a 1hour delay leaving Chile, but they made up some time in the air."
Pros: "It was special. Like a special limo"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It actually was all good"
Cons: "Late departure without giving any reason."
Pros: "Service on board great people"
Cons: "Overbooked flight we had to wait with baby and 4 years old kid till last minute to know if we could get on board or not. Latam wanted us to fly in three different seats we told them that we were happy to flight next day but they pushed till last minute waiting. When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."
Pros: "more space in coach section, between seats"
Cons: "less space for legs in seats."
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices, the best airline food I've ever had, attentive service, lots of amenities, new and modern plane"
Pros: "I loved the whole trip"
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints!!"
Pros: "My first flight on LATAM and very impressed. Fast boarding, lots of help for an English speaking passenger in Chile, newer plane, clean, and efficient flight attendants. I'll be back!"
Pros: "Plane on time performance"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "LAN moved to departure gate five minutes before scheduled Board Time from downstairs shuttle bus to plane, to a walk on gate to plane."
Cons: "Original schedule pulled in one day due to Hurricane Irma cancellation/rebook from MIA to SCL. LAN wanted $280US to change ticket. I paid $160US for ticket originally. No sympathy from LAN for hurricane impacted travelors. Extremely poor customer relations!!"
Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"
Pros: "Good food, friendly staff, in flight entertainment, flight on time."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. The flight was smooth and quiet."
Cons: "The cabin has garbage and it was dirty."
Cons: "The space"
Cons: "I received a confirmation email and flight information but was unable to check into my flight upon arrival and was not in their system for the flight. Very upsetting and unreliable."
Cons: "Seat space,"
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Pros: "Despite having a high "Sapphire" status with this One World Partner and being promised "preferente" seats by the airline when I reserved seats months ago, I was unable to view the seats or check in online. Both their App and their online system were down and unavailable. We were never able to view our actual seats online. The "preferred seats" my group on 5 could not have been worse!! We were seated consistently in row 11 or the very last row of the aircraft immediately in front of the lavatory, where the seats do not recline at all and where you hear and smell the bathroom for the entire flight.. There was NO space to breathe in our seats. I have traveled on dozens of airlines and this experience and these seats were the WORST! After this happened once, I specifically asked to insure that it would not happen again and was told that seats on my next flights were good but they were the same horrible seats. Part of our itinerary was on LAN and part was on TAM, who have now combined into 1 airline, but still operate on separate systems. So LAN customer service could not see the seats for TAM flights and vice versa. Their online system reflected a changed time for our return flight from 145pm to 250pm from Rio. We verified it 3 times (even though we could not check in or view our seats because of "technical difficulties" we could see the new departure tie, and the change was confirmed by our Sheraton concierge, but when we arrived to the airport they informed us that we had arrived to late for our 145pm flight! We showed them the app that showed our flight was changed to 250pm and they could not explain the problem. We were delayed 4 hours and arrived too late for dinner in Santiago. The final 4 hour flight at 4am flight from Santiago to Lima was torture. The seat in front was literally 6 inches in front of my face when they reclined and I could not recline. It was absolute TORTURE! Avoid this airline! To add the agony, they have lost my bag and do not know where it is!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE seats with NO space and no Recline as a "preferred" clients. Impossible and inaccurate online App and check in process that was always unavailable. Unfriendly and poor customer service at check in, and inaccurate information (being told that we had good preferred seats, for example) Lost luggage still pending."
Cons: "One of my bags was damaged on the direct flight from Santiago to Miami. It looked like it had been dragged down the runway. I showed this to Latan representative Angel Pupulin in Miami who's first statement was, "Latan is not responsible." He was rude and initially refused to even fill out a damaged bag report. I explained that I would call my credit card company and put a non-authorization on $2500 worth of tickets. He continued to speak to me in Spanish although I told him, " No habla Espanol." He spoke English but was trying to jerk me around in every way possible. This is not going to be ignored! One employee screwed up all the positives of multiple flights with Latan. I will avoid flying Latan in the future and will not recommend Latan to others."
Pros: "Flying on a Boing 787 is wonderful. The overall service from Latam is top quality; the crew was welcoming and very attentive. Food could be improved, specially offering vegetarian alternative for all of the food services. The movie selection could be improved (in variety and vintage). Music selection was very good for my taste."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seats on line in advance, which created a stressful situation when at check-in we found that my wife and I were not seated together. Fortunately for the first leg of the trip (Santiago-Lima) there was an empty seat by her and I took it; and for the second leg (Lima-Los Angeles) the passenger next to her was upgraded on the last minute and left his seat for me. Latam has great service, but must let customers choose their seats or guarantee assigning adjacent seats to passengers traveling together, The process for servicing of the plane during the stop-over in Lima could be improved. I know it is hard to do minor cleaning, tidy-up, and replacement of pillows & blankets while many passengers remain on board, but at least there should be an announcement describing what the passengers are to expect during the stop-over."
Pros: "Once again, I was impressed with the food and the service. The flight crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't have audio for one of the movies so I had to use closed caption to read what the characters were saying. I had some issues trying to get the movie to play because the screen froze for a moment."
Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
Pros: "Staff was nice but still in an airplane not moving"
Cons: "Waiting and no contact as no cell phone or internet conection to inform hotel you are not going to arrive in time to use their room"
Cons: "To short connection"
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "The movie choices are endless!"
Cons: "I wish I was told about the Lan app to download before we took off"
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The schedule"
Cons: "The stop in Lima"
Pros: "Well I arrived at the gate 8 minutes before departure due to a late flight from San Antonio. And no one was there. I watched the plane leave 5 minutes late. The gate attendants were super rude and lazy when they came back up the ramp. I think the walk really took it out of them. There were 10 people who had run from delayed flights just standing there thinking wtf."
Cons: "AA in Phoenix is always a nightmare. They seem to hire lazy people with no idea of customer service"
Cons: "Ramps up to the plane are a challenge for someone with movement problems. They had a mechanical issue that delayed departure for almost an hour for lack of a single screw."
Pros: "Pretty efficient for a completely full flight."
Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Cons: "I love it"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"
Cons: "I paid $70 for a seat upgrade, and it showed on my boarding pass as “EXIT” (exit aisle) with 6 inches of extra legroom when I purchased the upgrade in London. By the time I arrived in Dallas, the “EXIT” indicator on my boarding pass disappeared. When I boarded the plane there was no extra legroom and row 16 was not an exit row: rows 14 and 15 were. I endured a less comfortable trip, and now have to go through the pain and effort to get a refund. Good luck to me..."
Pros: "Crew was polite, Captain was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "The Seats have a nice width and a nice forward-to-back pitch. They're also brand-new upholstery. Very nice"
Cons: "American Airlines concourse in Charlotte is awful. Standing room only, and under construction. No power outlets in the plane."
Cons: "Rushing from gate to gate after sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes after not having anything to eat on the four hour flight from PHL. Not being able to get anything healthy because the layover was reduced from 40 minutes to 5. GIVE US SOME FOOD DAMMIT!"
Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."
Pros: "All was great - we even arrived early."
Cons: "Not even a cracker"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Cons: "Lost our bags on our 6 hour layover in Bogota and when we arrived in Lima (our last stop cusco) they were not nice about it at all. So rude. We almost missed our flight to cusco because of it as well even though we had almost a 3 hour layover. Took more than 24 hours to get the bags"
Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."
Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was good to be honest"
Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food was so so nothing special"
Pros: "Everybody answers me any questions that I have. And treat me very Gental. I thought that I lost a Lounge but in my next fly from Bogota to Pereira apair in Pereira airport."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Pros: "The flight boarded really quickly with absolutely excellent service from the flight crew. The pilots and crew were so considerate, and helpful. They totally took care of all of us. From the time I got on to the flight to the time I got off the crew were there to make sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"
Cons: "More flight delays..."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"
Pros: "Staff was kind."
Pros: "The plane was a newer Boeing 738 plane and has AC power outlet at every seat. However I was not able to use their in-flight movie channel on my tablet since there were too many users."
Cons: "I am an Executive Platinum member and normally should get a meal even in economy. It was not offered on this flight. The crew didn't have a friendly attitude."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "roomy flight, great movie selection, food was great"
Pros: "Their customer service sucks."
Cons: "Their customer service sucks."
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for the wine."
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Pros: "Check in and boarding was quick"
Cons: "Paying extra for seats"
Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"
Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Main cabin extra leg room."
Cons: "Barely any help with delayed flight and connecting flight. Had to say a prayer and sprint through DFW to make the connecting flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I called around 5 times since june or july to change my flight because I was injured at work and couldn't travel. I called customers service and they told me that I cannot change my flight they dont give another solution they just told me that I have to buy another flight ticket. I will not recommended amy of my family or friends to travel in vayama."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Could not get voarding pass although an AA plane the ticket as tgey called it was co partner with LATAM, so American would not talk to me and LATAM could not help either. Eventhough I was talking directly in the LATAM lounge with a representative. Ridiculous could not obtain a seat assignment until I arrived in Bogota, there I found out that the flight was overbooked and ended up having the last of a center seat."

The on-line check-in process could have been much improved

The flight left 2 hours late.

They were ridiculously disorganized and efficient with check-in and baggage drop-off in Austin. Many passengers were afraid that we wouldn't make the flight on time except that a lot of us would have missed the flight for this reason. Flight from the US to London went well, no hiccups, decent food. 4 hour flights from London to Istanbul don't even come with complimentary snack or beverage. On my flight from London to Austin, the airways lost my luggage. Flight was delayed on runway because they were removing luggage from passengers that didn't make the flight in time - including 2 people that were supposed to be seated in my row. Seems they messed up and took my luggage off instead if my seat mates which is a stupid mistake to make since my tag should be tied to my name, not my seat row.

The crew were sterling. The flight was fully packed, the chair I was assigned didn't have a screen to watch TV on, and other passengers stood inches away from my face while milling around near the toilets. Also, super narrow seats on row 30 A-C so pretty tight squeeze for a *ahem* larger gent such as myself. That said, flight was on time, food was fine, crew were competent and pleasant.

Pros: "Boarding was poor. Stood on bus for almost 30 minutes followed by long bus ride to plane. No apology. Crew service average at best."
Pros: "All Crew from check in to departing plane was wonderful! Best customer service of all the airlines I’ve flown with."
Cons: "The entertainment wasn’t working initially."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Check-in staff was great at LHR - they were able to configure our seating so that the seat was empty between us."
Pros: "Polite and helpful crew members."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Premium Economy seating is very comfortable and the cabin service was excellent."
Cons: "Despite the long layover, they managed to misplace one or bags at Heathrow."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were awesome!! They were friendly, warm, and very accommodating throughout the flight. Legroom was decent and overall flight was comfortable."
Cons: "There could have been more options with the food. Because we are vegetarians we were stuck with pasta and pizza-related food for the 11 hour flight. Quality of food was good however."
Pros: "I liked the crew."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Indian curry/ pasta and pizza. It was so cold in the plane that everybody had to wear something on their heads. The AC was blowing on my head for 11 hours. I have headaches, my sinuses heart and the food made me nauseous. It was impossible to sleep because of the low temperature."
Pros: "Timing of flight. Gate not too distant at Gatwick.."
Cons: "The check in and seat allocation process is awful. Boarding was chaotic with passengers still standing as we rolled back (quite sensibly the pilot did not want to miss the slot). Sitting around rows 19/20 means that even on an a two hour flight, you risk attendants never reaching you with the trolley."
Pros: "The service was the best you could ask for"
Cons: "NO WIFI!!!"
Pros: "I thought the staff were helpful and professional. I had enough legroom and there was room for my wedding dress to be hung, although it was slightly small."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence but I know this is not the fault of the airline. Additionally, the in-flight entertainment was not working properly and this had to be reset on request. There were no wet towels/wipes to wipe our hands."
Pros: "Good, thanks"
Cons: "not many options in food n juice, I asked for cookies ( basic thing ) , was not available even. No option for Bollywood movies in entertainment as lots of Indian fly in this Delhi - London - San Jose"
Pros: "Longer flights make for more friendly and relaxed crew members!"
Pros: "Comfort but only since I paid extra to upgrade to business class. World Traveler Plus is mediocre at best."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic."
Cons: "I never actually was able to go because British airways canceled my flight the morning of."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. It was business and the other high status groups, then everyone else. No boarding groups. For charging almost twice as much for a premium economy ticket, it would be great if we could board before economy at least."
Cons: "delay too long"
Pros: "Got us (but not our bags) to Seattle. Wanted ro charge for water--are you kidding me??"
Cons: "Abysmally awful customer service--way beyond rude and not at all helpful."
Pros: "Excellent service and great food. Not too lavish but classy and efficient."
Cons: "No wireless. Seats could be wider."
Pros: "Friendly attendants."
Pros: "The flight crew including the flight attendants."
Cons: "Although the seats had some leg room more than many airlines, the leg room is tight for a ten hour flight. Again I paid money thinking I was purchasing more leg room. I’m not sure what the charge was for???"
Pros: "Everything. Professional staff."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Flight was good, delayed by 25minutes though,"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Crew were busy to make us more comfortable during the long trip, always smile. Food is better than I thought."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant and did a great job serving passengers in a timely manner."
Cons: "- my headphone jack was broken so I had to ask to move 3 times, and then finally walked up to the back of the plane to ask to be seated somewhere else - This particular flight had an unusually high number of babies. I was seated next to a couple with twin babies and of course they cried every so often. Only a few rows away there were another two babies. - food selection was super heavy on sugar or carbs. Entre choices were pasta with tomato sauce or chicken with cheese ravioli. Almost no one chose the pasta. Please introduce healthier options with actual protein for meat eaters and vegetarians."
Pros: "Easy no hassle trip home"
Cons: "BA will receive a specific letter regarding our out bound experience from San Jose CA, and I would hope to get to speak to a BA representative about our experience as well."
Pros: "The empty seat next to us. Entertainment was good. The chocolate-orange pudding was terrific with coffee!"
Cons: "The uncontrolled screaming of a certain child on the flight. Unable to nap at all! Bad for an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "The food and the on screen entertainment was great"
Cons: "Leg room is an issue for me"
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Movie selection not that great"
Cons: "Noarding was fast. Food same as a previous flight. Still stuck in the airplane 30 min afyer touch down with no air condition."
Pros: "Plane ldeparted and landed on time. Plane was nicer than expected but not the same quality as Airbus 320"
Cons: "Immigration was severely understaffed for number of people waiting Took an hour to process 50 people. Crew member unhappy by seat swap as had special meal request. Had moved only one seat to the left to help other passenger out."
Pros: "Entertainment System was pretty good. Food served was nice and overall I was pretty impressed with the crew.. Normally most of the European and American airlines crew has a lot of attitude and are not the friendliest of lot but this set of crew was pretty good. Seats were also not too cramped like AA or UA flights."
Pros: "Offfered to boarded early as I was traveling with my Son"
Pros: "The ease of San Jose airport. The nice, new, clean airplane."
Cons: "Food could be better. Also they ran out of most of the choices. We were in business class and for the price you should be able to get your choice. I do see British Airways does offer a pre-flight meal selection and I would use this next time."
Pros: "Efficient and polite crew and excellent entertainmemt!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Nice new airplane (787). On time. Good food. Plenty of fluids served."
Pros: "Great service on plane"
Cons: "A lot of stress: our 1st leg IAD to Dublin was cancelled, than we got 2 set of tickets rebooked. On the way back there was a stress since we had a "problem with the ticket" Apparently the Aer Lingus made all those mistakes. In London I was told to go to the end of line 2 times, the BA employee was olaying really weird games. Pretty annoying."
Cons: "Nothing special ti say except what already said on the flight in about the fact that now you have to pay for every single thing and ONLY tap water is free."
Pros: "Routing"
Cons: "English airline food. Flight attendant's after shave too strong, started me sneezing every time he walked by."
Pros: "Great flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was a sardine in a tiny tin for 10 hours."
Pros: "Nothing good to say its an old plane, rubbish entertainment system no help by the British airway's staff not even in checkin when my girlfriend struggled to weigh bag the staff just looked and offered no assistance. Hardly came round to offer drinks meal was foul and the Sandwick was inedible. I will never fly British airways again I wrongly thought that they were a premier service how wrong was I"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Fantastic service and easy process from start to finish."
Cons: "The diabetic meals lacked variety and there was no choice. I was given a chicken dish with potatoes and mushrooms for the first meal and then given another chicken dish with rice for the second . Unlike other passengers I was not offered a choice. Both meal had a high carbohydrate load as they came with a separate bread bun . The first meal had peaches for dessert but my second meal offering had no substitute for the cake given to other passengers. The snack box contained sweet and salty popcorn,salted crisps and malteasers which are to be avoided by diabetics . Overall my dietary needs were poorly serviced by BA on this flight."
Pros: "excellent we got upgraded to premium economy so all was good"
Pros: "Food and service were first class even in economy seating. British Airways is always my favorite airlines, consistently superior in most areas. The food and beverage on the 24hr flight was very good."
Cons: "The Boeing 747-400 on leg from London to San Diego had the older infotainment system, compared to my first flight. It worked well, however the screen was small, and the in flight flight tracker was dated. Most BA flights have the newer system."
