Airline reviews
Pros: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job."
Cons: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job. Two of the employees serving the cabin could use an attitude adjustment. The crew was late in getting food out but for a four hour flight there is no value in flying anymore. Airlines are just trying to rake in as much money as possible. When are they going to be responsible for everyone getting sick like cruise ships are? They should hand out masks and sanitizer because airlines are one of the dirtiest public spaces that there is! Show up late and barely clean the plane between its third or fourth leg of the day."

Pros: "Friendly crew members."
Cons: "Check-in procedure."
Pros: "The crew were great. The seat could always be bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Examine the seats in the cabin it seems to be loose from the mounting to the floor."
Pros: "crew was great."
Cons: "flight was 3 hours late with lame excuse. tray tables disgusting. felt unclean. cookies tasted gross. pa system not working. live flight not working either"
Cons: "Delays and nonstop messages about ETAs and gate changes"
Cons: "Not only was our flight delayed two + hours because the crew was delayed (which happens), but then when we landed at midnight, there wasn't a gate open for us. We had to wait another 30 minutes just for a gate. What gives, JetBlue? Did you forget we were coming?"
Pros: "flights on the DCA-BOS route are the 2x2 planes, so no bad seats. Seats are also nice amount of space compared to some airlines."
Cons: "Not really the airline's fault, but there was bad weather on our route so we sat on the plane for 3 hours before we even took off. So for a 1.5 hr flight we were on the plane for 5+ hours."
Cons: "Food and entertainment were Not Applicable."
Pros: "Everyone was boarded early so we departed early. Quick flight with pleasant flight attendants and nice snacks."
Cons: "The desk agent in Boston could be a little more pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed. Ground crew was rude. Pilot wasn’t good. Landing was rough and ears hurt."
Pros: "The service and the food"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "crew member good."
Cons: "delay delay delay"
Pros: "Crew was accommodating and friendly-as I would expect."
Cons: "Service above and beyond the expected."
Cons: "No three hour delay on the flight world have been better"
Pros: "The flight crew was very sensitive to the fact that our flight was very delayed and that several passengers would have a right connection to make in DC. That just topped off an already pleasant experience."
Cons: "After sitting 4.5 hours in the Charleston airport - without an asthma attack, I walked down a gangway to the airplane which just wreaked of mildew. Standing in it waiting for everyone to board caused a severe asthma attack after boarding. A real shame. I suspect I’m not the only one affected."
Pros: "Fast boarding, kind crew, smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Loved the leg room but the seat cushions are not that comfortable."
Pros: "A lot"
Cons: "a little comfy seats"
Pros: "Plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "I pick Jetblue over other carriers because of the ability to watch TV. It wasn’t working today and the attendant was aloof and uncaring. What was worse was the bathroom in the back that was ‘out of order.’ Both of these made my flight less than I would expect and I will consider another carrier"
Pros: "Flight on time, smooth birding/disembarkment"
Cons: "I boarded the flight with a carry-on and one personal item. As usual I personally place the carry-on in an overhead bin. After the flight landed and I went to retrieve my carry-on, it was gone! The flight was full, so I checked with the flight attendants if my bag somehow got gate-checked or it was moved. They didn't know and they said maybe it went into the checked bags. So I wait at the baggage claim and out comes my carry on bag without any tags. Strange! My carry on didn't have anything valuable, but a bit of communication or some form of record would have made this odd incident a little less nerve-wracking. 1. Please communicate with the passenger if their bags get transferred to the checked bags 2. Please communicate with the crew which bags get moved from the cabin to the checked luggage 3. Please label the bags if they get moved around--there was no gate-checked tags or any stickers to communicate with the checked luggage folks."
Cons: "Poor"
Pros: "The quality of the JetBlue team was the best I have experienced in years on ANY airline, domestic or international!"
Cons: "Nothing, it could not have gone better."
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departure was delayed, then it made an unscheduled stop in Jamaica for refueling! A 3 hour flight ended up taking 7 hours. On top of that the plane did not have a way to recharge a cell phone. The entertainment choices as well as the tv screen were poor and then there was no way to turn off the screen."
Pros: "Crew efficient, polite, & communicative. Array of tv channels allowed me to watch football while our departure was delayed."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed our departure."
Pros: "Boarded early, plenty of leg room, delicious in-flight free beverages & snacks, arrived at DCA 27 min early. My wife had a panic attack and the two stewardesses took great care of her and calmed her down. Despite my wife's condition, the stewardesses took great care of the rest of the passengers, too. We've flown JetBlue to Puerto Rico and loved the service. My adult son is a fan of JetBlue."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The fly-fi worked very well."
Cons: "The "tv" didn't work - One of the things I like about Jet Blue"
Cons: "It was great. I slept and did not partake in any hospitality."
Pros: "Roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight delayed. Other than that everything was good, friendly crew, TV program on board, drinks and snacks, plus a carry-on item allowed, will use JetBlue more in the future ."
Pros: "Loved the live TV and spacious room between seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like the weather delay but that’s not JetBlue’s fault."
Cons: "The plane was miserably cold, with tempuratures dipping well into the 50s on the aircraft. I was shivering and sneezing the entire time, guests in the row in front of my had their leather jackets over their faces. Air was pummeling me in the window seat. It was the most miserable 2 hours on a plane I have ever experienced, and I have been on thousands. I would highly reconsider the tempuratures on the plane seeing as that this could severely sicken children and elderly. I have never experienced this before."
Pros: "The app on my phone allowed me to do nearly everything but place my luggage in the back"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Usual great Jet Blue experience."
Cons: "Crew took too long before they told us reason for delay of flight from DCA to CHS"
Pros: "Everyone was great, and the communication through the weather delay was excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment: headphone jack was tricky to connect and (due to the weather) the stations didn't work."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. No disruptions. Nothing else to say' all good."
Pros: "Seat was fine"
Cons: "Plane was blowing excessive amounts of cold air on my seat, and airflow could not be adjusted. I explained this would trigger a sinus infection, a common issue for those prone to sinus infections, not to mention it was simply uncomfortable. I asked for this to be addressed. It was not, despite I was told turning down the air might be possible. No follow up was provided. Sure enough, I now have s sinus infection."
Cons: "I got a kind late notice about flight delayed when already was on my way to airport in a cab So we wait 4 hours at airport very disappointed"
Pros: "Slight delay getting out of Boston, but we had received an email that there are runway repairs. Flight was smooth with pleasant service."
Pros: "Plane on time - snacks were fine"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "The service and timeliness was excellent"
Cons: "The machines to print the luggage tags were not working so we had to stand in a long line - after I had checked in and paid the fees the night before to avoid that."
Cons: "Baggage was 25 dollars but airline checking same size bags for free at the gate?????"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early both ways."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were met. The crew was professional and corteous."
Cons: "There is no WiFi, directTV on the flight. There is “no satellite coverage “ during the flight. Even though it’s sate and it comes from space, there’s no coverage. Come on, there has to be a copyright issue or something."
Pros: "I bought a ticket for my 85-year old Mom to fly from Puerto Rico to Washington, DC, where I'm stationed, and from Curbside to Curbside, she told me your people and your service were all SUPERB! Thank you for making my Mom feel comfortable and safe during such a traumatic time. You have a customer for life!"
Pros: "I checked my carry-on bag. The crew let us know that the best view in DC would be on the left side, so we switched seats so that the children could see from that side."
Cons: "Lack of leg room."
Pros: "I was traveling from Charelston to DC the weekend before Irma hit with a return flight Sunday. The counter agent was great at finding a return flight change no problem. No fee. Off I went, and off Irma went, I had to change my return travel plans and unfortunatelyJetblue didn't have s direct flight to my new destination, the counter agent in DC went thru possible options and worked with main ticketing to refund my flight for future use, noting it saved me money to rebook online at a cheaper fare, what airline does that theses days. Very pleased and grateful Jetblue made my travel during a tense weather weekend the least of my worries, they were Rock Stars!"
Cons: "Due to hurricane Irma, people are flooding out of Florida like rats on a sinking ship. So, the security checkpoint is an absolute mess. Meanwhile, the trains at MCO are malfunctioning badly as they chaotically try to replace them. The boarding agent acknowledged these issues as she explained to me and 5 other people that we couldn't get on the plane that wasn't scheduled to leave for 12 more minutes. Finally, thank God, a supervisor arrived and called the captain of the plane who subsequently let us board. Completely unnecessary situation. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "A total mess and short of information"

Cons: "I didn't like that the flight was delayed but it's understandable."
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude."

Pros: "The flight was on time. Family boarding was super helpful when traveling with a toddler. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seat assigned to my daughter had a faulty life jacket and the crew wanted our family to split up. My daughter is 2 and didn't like that her dad was moving somewhere else as we were taking off. Since the crew member didn't want to ask the individual sitting next to me, I asked if she would mind moving so that our family could stay together."
Pros: "Boarding staff, inflight service were good. It was first time experience to travel by Avianca airline but was happy. Improve the food for vegetarians."
Cons: "Your check in staff at Lima airport was rude, & unpleasant"
Pros: "I arrived to my destination safely."
Cons: "Sound didn’t work for the sreen in headrests on my whole row. Asked if they could reset, kept being told they would, but never did. Seats are extremely uncomfortable. Butt and back hurt. No good air circulation, especially if you sit by the window. The middle seat feels it more. Lack of caring from crew unless you spoke Spanish."
Pros: "Everything perfect. The attention was puntual y nice"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I love Avianca, I wish I could fly everywhere I go with them"
Cons: "They always seem to misplace my miles information. I had to get a new card even though I have traveled with them FOY MANY YEARS!!"
Cons: "Avianca workers at the El Salvador airport were awful, not only could they not speak english, but they were rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "Due to their overbooking I was almost foreced to stay, I was told that I was travelling at my own risk: please give me a break!"

Cons: "Did not fly as scheduled - still in Bogota"
Pros: "The plane was new and in good condition, had personal entertainment units. staf were friendly"
Cons: "Food options were limited"
Pros: "I liked everything except the food."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for meals"
Cons: "My flight landed at 2:00pm, and my connecting flight boards at 1:55pm. The gate was all the way on the side of the airport and I had to go through another security checkpoint and barely made my flight."

Cons: "We were two, they gave us separate sits and they were vacant sits"

Pros: "Nice planes"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "One of my suitcases didn't make it to my final destination and was found still in Bogota a day later making my arrival home very stressful and upsetting. I had medicine and important items in my suitcase and could only retrieve them 2 days later."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Please read previous note"
Pros: "price, on-time, food, entertainment system"
Cons: "Inferior seat-backs have no storage for water bottle and person items like books. What's with that?! If meant to increase legroom, not satisfactory solution."
Pros: "The crew was great - good service, attentive."
Cons: "The food could have been better ! I know on a flight it's hard for it to be decent given the circumstances, but I've had much better on other airlines. Just not very tasty at all."
Pros: "It is super comfortable and the entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The food didn't taste great. It seems to be a general problem with Avianca pilots but usually the take-off and landings are bad. You will usually hear people say "aaaaah" during landing just because the pilots depart waaay to fast."
Pros: "Going from Washington DC to Lima, Peru with stop in San Salvador is great because break the trip in half and San Salvador is a small airport. Going to Peru my two planes were very comfortable and with good entreatment"
Cons: "No blankets on my way back"
Cons: "I'm writing this review in behalf of my mother, who had a nightmare in Lima, Peru. Avianca changed her flight without prior notice (email or phone). She is a 72 years old woman that had a stroke three years ago, can't be exposed to any stressful situation, she needed to take medication at 9:30am LIFETIME! They didn't asked if she had a health condition, they just decided to change her flight from the one at 10:00am to the one at 5:00pm. Maybe they would be able to guess it as she was so nervous, she showed worried and confused in the counter where they informed her the "news" during check-in process. She arrived 3 1/2 hours in advance to the airport in order to avoid flight stress. She doesn't have family in Lima, so they sent her to a nice hotel (but far), arrived at 10:15am so she took her medication late. Very stressful episode for me and my family after trying to contact her as the hotel didn't let her call us (Avianca said she would have an international courtesy call). My mother called a friend of mine informing her the situation, that is how I knew about this. She didn't ate correctly that day as her food has to be low sodium. They should have arranged her flight in a same group plane and avoid old persons (with conditions) wait 9 hours. There are no words to express my frustration as nobody could help me in Avianca customer service. They should have priorities and consideration for elder people as this kind of situations are harmful for them, their blood pressure and their hearts! CERO COMMON SENSE!"
Pros: "Good food and drinks and great movie options. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Bring your own headphones. While it's pretty awesome that an airline gives away free headphones, they are junk and distort even when just trying to get the volume loud enough to overcome the jet noise."
Pros: "Kind and respectful personnel"
Cons: "I was asked to be at the La Paz airport 3 hr before international flight, so did I, only to see the check in open 1.5 hours before the flight, more consistency needed"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "It would be nice to have food options that do not include meat. However, in general the food was poor."
Pros: "The flight was performed on time as in the schedule."
Cons: "The chairs in the row in which we were sitting could not recline. The reason was that our row was in front of the emergency exit. However if you have had a very short night the only thing you want is to sleep a little bit in the plane. Because the chairs could not recline this became very difficult. The plane left also very early so we had to be there at 0400."
Pros: "Good service and comfort. I honestly don't eat on flights but they're always offering snacks and meals on quick flights"
Cons: "Everything. I missed the flight because I was sleeping near the gate after two night flights and no one called me to board the airplane. I got only stress from this flight. Regards, Iadviga"
Cons: "No fans on plane, crew asked too much about seat numbers and became a bottleneck instead of helping. Entertainment was very limited. Only one good movie that was recent (the Martian)."
Pros: "It was awesome that movies and checking bags were free for the flight! That was something i did not expect:)"
Pros: "same as above"

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.

Better management of the boarding line and the crew should check for trash more often

Flight crew was friendly and professional

Pros: "Old aircraft showing its age."
Pros: "Fast easy flight"
Pros: "Got here early!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment option was avail except WiFi (T-Mobile) which wasn’t free"
Cons: "90 minute delay"
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "unsure"
Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "The check in counter personnel was VERY UNHELPFUL. I was running late to previous Delta flight baggage delay. The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train."
Cons: "The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and quick."
Cons: "the number of kids......not too fond. :/"
Cons: "Excellent"
Cons: "If there could have been some sort of services to take travelers to their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Everything was great."
Pros: "I always appreciate in-flight television even on short flights."
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "I love Delta! Always professional, efficient and polite. They disappoint on this round-trip flight. They are my go-to carrier. When I call the people whom I speak to are always very polite and efficient"
Cons: "The person next to me was a very large individual and the seats were not wide. This phenomenon had nothing to do with Delta as a carrier, however."
Pros: "Everything was great everyone was fantastic. F"
Pros: "Not sure why this flight was delayed inbound. But it made the departure late by over 30 minutes."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."
Cons: "Never told why we were delayed by more than 90 minutes"
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food, no outlets, a terrible delayed not explained to passengers."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Unexplained delays, lack of transfer services (there was no separate connections security screening; passengers were required, after a redeye flight and customs, to switch floors and stand in long lines with general security. Also, no beverages of any kind were offered."
Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Seat was very cramped and I want able to be comfortable at all. I couldn't even sit back I the seat!"
Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "Snacks & beverages on a 1 hour flight. Very nice crew"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Kyle was our flight attendant. He was great. Attentive the whole trip and served us water and snacks."
Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."
Pros: "I am 6’3” and have difficulty with leg room on planes. Staff help me out by moving my son and I to Comfort seating row."
Pros: "Where the flight attendants on my AeroMexico portion were authentically compassionate, the flight attendants for delta were superficial. The flight attendant,while serving us drinks, started saying what great passengers we were but her flight from Dallas the day before was definitely a feeling the effects of the full moon. This was our first interaction with a flight attendant. She had no basis for saying we were great and as we didn't have a relationship other than ordering drinks she had no basis for complaining about her Dallas to us. She would leave it to us that she was being put upon by the customers that she was getting paid to serve. Where the Aeromexico flight attendant genuinely enjoyed serving her customers."
Cons: "They forced everyone in the third zone to check our hand carry and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible staff"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "very little"
Cons: "Could they make sears smaller? The plane was really old too."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Had a chance to download the entertainment app during layover, so could take advantage of movies available on second flight. Crew still good; gate attendants friendly; snacks/drinks readily available."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, good selection of snacks, excellent seat and leg room."
Cons: "Lavatory was unusually smelly no charging port"
Pros: "Delta is definitely the jewel of commercial airlines. I understand making money depends on how many bodies you can transport at one time. But as a large man the seat size and leg room could be improved. I unfortunately cant afford first class to remedy this problem."
Pros: "Getting on board was smooth and efficient. Service was friendly on flight. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "My flight from ATL to BWI was horrible. It was not a Delta plane. Possibly borrowed from SpiritAirlines, which is an airline I will never fly again even if offered a free flight. That's how strongly I feel about their planes and service. I was seated in a 2across row where the seats were small and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. I'll grant you I am a big girl at 6' 250 however the first leg of my flight from FLL to ATL which WAS on a Delta plane, was fine. I did not feel smashed into the seat. For the money, I feel like I am due more than being locked into the seat unable to move more than 1/2 inch for an entire flight. Thankfully the flight was under 2 hours."
Pros: "Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic"
Pros: "good crew. great seats."
Cons: "I would like to have tv screens in flights from Bogota to Panama. No entertainment at all. But from Panama to Miami it was perfect."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check in was slow. Boarding was disorganized - half the plane was business class or so-called preferred status. Ground staff were unhelpful"
Pros: "The quick boarding"
Cons: "The food still not good, even that is a short flight Copa should choose another kind of plane because the Embraiber is a very small plane for comfort"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection was really good too."
Cons: "If the airline is not going to unload the passengers at a gate the busses should be available inmefiatly, not half an hour after arrival."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 40 minutes."
Pros: "Flight was fine. Limited selection of entertainment, but adequate (barely) for the flight time. Food was decent."
Cons: "Don't transfer through Panama; worst experience with ill-trained gate security agents taking personal property for no reason, broken toilets, no real dining options. Just use another transfer city like MIA or skip COPA altogether if you have to transfer in Panama."
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."
Pros: "Loved the leg room in the emergency seat row"
Cons: "Wider seats in economy"
Cons: "Non entertainment system"
Pros: "The worst airlines company!"
Cons: "They go above and beyond to make you happy."
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Atention and service"
Cons: "No air in plane while boarding so temperatures we're easily over 100 degrees in the cabin"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. Crew was ok."
Cons: "Lousy food. Small, old aircraft (737). No individual screens, no phone chargers, asked for a repeat hot dish and was told yes, but never got it. It lacks behind many other carriers. I was expecting much better."
Cons: "Security was redundant and disorganized. Gate staff were uninformitive."
Pros: "We were 7 people traveling together with 4 kids and the system gave us the emergency exit seats, the check in took over one hour (both ways) once inside I have to ask passengers to change seats with my kids because the crew didn’t do it"
Cons: "Nothing, plane is old."
Cons: "The food. it is absolutely horrible"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable space for my legs."
Cons: "The flight from Panama City to Washington, DC didn't have the personal television screens."
Pros: "free wine"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Good entertainment, in seat options and decent food."
Cons: "There is a second security check point right before you enter the gate area and you can't take any food or drink it which includes water. That made for a long wait with nothing to drink and once on board there was no extra water service."
Pros: "courtesy, punctuality and comfort."
Cons: "FOOD..."
Pros: "Service was great. Food was good. The flight attendants were attentive and the planes were new."
Cons: "Panamá has the worst airport next to LaGuardia I’ve ever connected through. Crowded; dirty restrooms and poor food options."
Pros: "Comfortable and short"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "2 free bags, free food d, free booze"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I cant say that it was good since i didnt take the flight. I had to make a change so it was cheaper to just fly with some one else rather then pay to make a change with Copa. On the way down it was not that bad. I was just not happy with the change price but it is what it is."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I flew business class. Having extra leg and seat room made a huge difference in my comfort. The staff on both the flight down and on the flight back were wonderful. I have mobility issues and they made sure I could safely get up to the restroom and to stretch my legs when I needed to. I will definitely fly Copa again."
Pros: "The flight was safe and comfortable."
Cons: "The connection flight was delayed, the gate at our connection was switched (meaning we had to go through security 2 extra times), neither flight had individual TV screens, and a vegetarian option was not available by default-as it had been on the flight there."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "Wasn't given headphones when asked."

Cons: "My flight was fine and the time seemed to go by quickly."
Pros: "Timeliness, food, good price for a non-stop flight."
Cons: "Not allowed to bring full water bottles on flights from Panama and crew didn't provide enough water service during flight."

Cons: "not much to say here"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude crew, old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Excellente attention flying, very friendly, very nice and clean inside the airplanes."
Cons: "Need more personal at the counters servicing people when checking in at the airport in Panama."
Pros: "no comments"
Cons: "I was soprice that we did not have any piows or blankets for this trip."
Cons: "the entertainment for my seat was not working. I switched to the seat next to me and i was experiencing the same problem. I was told by the flight attendant they would re start it but they didn´t."
Cons: "The boarding and departure took extremely long. I understand that there was a Power outage the day prior to this flight and that this cause major delays and issues throughout the following days."
Pros: "We made it on time"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the crew can offer water more often"
Pros: "All the way it should be!"
Pros: "The flight & the attendants were all great - the food was good & the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost an 1 hr. waiting for the airport to load the luggage. I could not understand the person making the announcements on the plane. It was garbled & so none of us really knew what he said on any of his announcements, We arrived at D.C. & we did not get our luggage. They said at the D.C. airport we would receive an email within 24 hours regarding our luggage. We didn't. They gave us a # to call - no one answered that #. We were supposed to get an email with our case # - we didn't. We were told on the plane we would get a bag of necessities - but we didn't. My husband had to keep calling different #'s to try to get ahold of someone to tell them about our luggage."
Cons: "Then they took my husbands passport and went through all of his belongings which took another 15 minutes. We had just been screened in Bogota."
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room, very good food provided."
Cons: "additional xray at gate and requirement to leave all water bottle behind."
Cons: "There needs to be some snack options in business class after the light meal."
Pros: "I have absolutely no complain about this flight or the crew, they were all diligent and helpful."
Pros: "I have flown with COPA for years and they never fail to impress me. Food is great for what it is (aircraft food) one of the best I have ever had. flight is pleasant and smooth most of the time. always super helpful and make it a seamless experience"

Excelente aerolínea con asientos cómodos aviones modernos y buena comida

Pros: "Plane was fine."

Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew and flight was fine and short"
Cons: "While I received an email to checkin on the way there, I did not receive anything for the return flight. Had to wait in line to check in. Also KIWI was the booker and did not share the regular flight code of Latam, only KiWis number which wasn't helpful. Finally, both flights were delayed."
Cons: "Terrible food"
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, and movie system did not work"

Cons: "U have to pay for everythings"

Flight was delayed for 2 hors. 3. my suitcase was sent down to storage and my back pack have to be put under my feet. but there was two more tenet my seat already. 4. We have to board the plane in the middle of the airport. and have to walk a lot to get the gate signed. 5. Once arrived I had to connect to American Airlines flight and have to walk one mille and change to get to the other side of the airport. It will be ok, but I was with a 3 year old minor and I have to deal with this and the child"
Pros: "nice peole, crew, great aiplane comfort and food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane shakes moves and jumps to much. Seems like LATAM is always late. They did not honor the seats which we pre purchased. Seems like the captains fly to fast and don’t know how to land"
Pros: "Normally, getting on a plane in Colombia is an absolute nightmare. People pushing, standing right next to you, when you get on the plane all the old women who do not know how to read always walk to the back of the plane when they're supposed to be sitting in seat 7? Been there? Seen that? Yes ! Seen it a million times. What makes this particular flight so unbelievable, and maybe it was just a training day because there was a lot of airline personnel at the check in kiosk, but I have never processed on to a flight in Columbia, given up my baggage, and be walking to the gate so fast in my life! I truly hope this is something that will become standard, and I pray to God that the other airlines especially Viva will learn how to do!"
Cons: "Overall very good, good crew... minus point.. seats SO tiny, it makes Asian airline economy seats feel like 1st class!"
Pros: "Personnel were helpful (attractive!)"

Pros: "Smooth flight, on time"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Easy boarding and organized staff. Friendly staff overall."
Cons: "Terrible terrible food- no TV (really? in 10 years flying to Colombia this was a first) seats were very uncomfortable, no room to move the legs, the seats were super old no room at all. I have traveled with LATAM before and I had good experiences, with no complains. But the flight from Bogota to Miami on may 29th was mediocre and it seems longer than it was. That plane should be used for shorter flights and not a 4 hour international flight. I am not expecting first class seats and 5 course meals. But for the same price I could have used other airlines."
Pros: "airplane was new"
Cons: "i was not able to do online check in"
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."
Pros: "I flew from Baltimore to Miami to Bogotá with zero issues. I am a musician and was traveling with my guitar, nobody hassled me and there was adequate space. The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"
Pros: "LA TRIPULACION"
Cons: "EL EQUIPAJE NO LO MANDARON HASTA DESTINO FINAL Y SE PERDIO"
Pros: "Flight on time,perfect schedule and mail info"
Pros: "comodidad normal camareras normales"
Cons: "divercion y comida"
Pros: "Bosrdi g wss easy"
