Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."

Pros: "Delta app is awesome."
Cons: "Really nothing. They did a great job."

Pros: "Better than spirit"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "After boarding the door was closed and the jet way was moved back. 5 minutes later they said they were going to bring the jet way back and open door to let more people on board. They broke 2 FAA regulations by doing this and we were delayed an hour because Deltas computer would not allow this."

Cons: "On my opinion Delta is one of the best airlines. Staff are friendly and they made me feel service. They are really nice and they.take care of been on time and anything you ask them they are there to answer. Great airline"

Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"

Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."

Pros: "We made it it was short 1 hour 11 min"
Cons: "I had a long lay over it was more then 12 hours"

Pros: "gate staff were great"

Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."

Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."

Cons: "My email read check into Aeromexico I could not check in the Aeromexico using my phone I was dropped off at the Aeromexico terminal after standing in line for half an hour I find I was in the wrong terminal I needed to be in a different terminal with Delta because Aeromexico even on my reservation read that does not fly to Tampa. I had to find a shuttle to another terminal the shuttlesare not marked it was very confusing"

Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."

Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."

Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"

Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"

I also ended up sitting in the last row of the plane, Im all for doing what you have to do to make the time pass at work but at times I could hear the staff harmonizing in the back as I tried to sleep. I also had issues getting on board with a SEALED duty free bag once I arrived in panama to board my NY flight"

Pros: "Flight attendant took care of everyone with a smile"
Cons: "Only entertainment is from overhead screens. This is not because copa doesn’t offer these services it’s just an older plane that was used."

Cons: "Never buy the flight insurance.. we bought it to keep our trip open ended and upon visiting an office in columbia they told us that the only time flight insurance comes in handy is if you are in a car accident or stabbed (verbatim) or something the like. We ended up only using half of the leg of the flight and had to book a new one to the same destination."

Cons: "Went business claSS: THe stewards gave bad service, very slow, not attended to offer, drinks, water. They even missed the dessert and one passenger got upset. They gave it to him just before landing.. not good. as i WAS LEAVING THE PLANE, had to stop the flow BECAUSE THEY DID NOT RETURN MY jACKET, so they had to open the closet. Please train them better. we are flying Business, not no frills.."

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."

Pros: "Copa is a great airline: always on time and friendly staff from boarding to flying! The stopovers are just enough making their flights the shortest to latinamerica"
Cons: "They have two set of aircrafts one of which is quite modern and the other one which is older. The new one has personal in flight entertainment system which is great! Unfortunately, based on my experience you only get the new planes half of the times. Looking forward to them updating all their planes."

Not sure of his last name but he made my day after two days of cancelled flights! Copa airlines needs more employees like him."
Cons: "Everybody I talked to at copa wanted to charge me a $300 fee to change my flight. Another airline canceled my flight which made me miss my connection. Very little customer service besides one great employee at the airline desk in Lima, Jorge."

Pros: "efficient and good service"

Cons: "I understand the COPA airline is serving South America area. But, most of the employee don't speak English at all. Make me feel like I am an idiot. I don't like the feeling."

Cons: "Very happy"

Cons: "Panamá Airport is so disgusting smell bad, the terminal was dirty, trash everywhere on the floor I was there for 2 hrs I didn't see housekeeper cleaning arounf.

On it they changed the gate without notification. Thank goodness we kept our eyes on the board otherwise we would have missed our flight! This is a serious problem with all Copa flights it seems...."
Cons: "After checking in they change the gates!!! This is crazy but understandable However if you are going to do this to checked in passengers the least you can do is make several, loud, repetitive announcements to make passengers aware as well as send an employee to the gate where your passengers are waiting and notify them that that is the wrong gate, a change has been made, and this is where to go, easy right!!!"

Pros: "Our Copa flight was a delightful contrast to US domestic flights (and reminded me of a time when flying in the US was not dreadful). The seats had comfortable leg-room, flight was on time, meal and drink service was coordinated, and flight attendants were responsive."

Pros: "The staff were friendly, the flight was comfortable."

Cons: "Plane was uncomfortable... no personal TV... very tough if you travel with children"

Pros: "Price."

Cons: "Due to circumstances beyond our control, we arrived at the Lima, Peru airport only a little over an hour before our flight. We immediately proceeded to look for the Copa Airlines check-in desk. We walked up and down the check-in area a couple of times, but couldn't find Copa anywhere. The monitor listing the departures had the counter numbers for Copa listed, but there was no one there. Eventually an airport employee told us where to find the Copa offices on the second floor. We arrived at the office 40 minutes before our scheduled departure. Someone in that office could have easily attended to our bags and walked us to our gate. Instead they fiddled with their computers trying to put us another flight. They left us standing there for over a half an hour with absolutely no explanation as to what was going on. Eventually someone came over and said we would have to call the operations center and rebook our flights at a cost of $1500 each. Why they would abandon their check-in desk an hour before the flight departs knowing that there were people on that flight that had not checked in, is a total mystery to me. That coupled with the fact that they could not have cared less about us making our flight makes me sick!! What a joke!! No one I know will ever ever fly Copa airlines again!!!"

Cons: "Could not web check-in from my phone."

Pros: "Latam would not transfer 1 medium baggage from LATAM to Avianca at Lima"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The attendant at the gate was rude. She asked for me to put my bag in the slot to see if it will fit. It fit, and she told me I still need to check my bag because I squeezed it in there. She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."

JetBlue gives many choices of snacks & whole can of drink. DirecTv - $7.99, JetBlue is free. We were a party of 3 that picked our seats to be together. Got to the airport & our seats were split up by desk clerk & she didn't even inform us of seat assignment change. She also put 2 of us in the Exit row without informing us. Did not know we were assigned to Exit row until we boarded. Our overhead bins were full with other passengers carryons. This should not be. Why can't passengers use their own overhead bins. Stewardess would not help us, she said find a spot up front, if not you'll have to check carryons. Terrible."

Pros: "We flew in comfort the entire trip! The business class cabin was clean, seats ample and comfortable."

Cons: "I was in the center bulkhead seat with an very oversized man on the aisle seat with a "service dog". It was not a service dog in the sense that it was all over the place--on my feet and in the aisle where it tripped a stewardess more than once and she told him it couldn't be in the aisle. So it pushed over to my seat because the guy was just to big to share his legroom. It shredded napkins the man dropped which a trained dog would not do. it bounced his tray table up causing him to drop his two vodkas. I had to have the stewardess tell him to move his arm and body out of my seat so I could stow my tray for landing. When waiting for my ride outside the dog was off lease and ran into the pickup lanes where the man had to chase him down. A true service dog would never behave like that."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"

We wanted to give the ticket to my brother in law (who just would be flying back 1way) and they were unwilling to help. Delta just helped us with very little fees a couple weeks ago-very sad company!"

Cons: "I didn't know that they church 50.00 per luggage"

Cons: "When the tray for my elderly dad got stuck the stewardess expected a stranger to reach across my mid section to fix it as it was a really stuck. I said no no no. We will get up and you fix it. The male passenger by me was also clearly uncomfortable with being asked to do that"

Cons: "I nvever fly Spirit again"

Pros: "Can't beat the low cost. Plane was decent. I'm petite so I had no issues as far as seating."
