Cons: "I purchased a fully refundable ticket. When the flight was canceled I got squat. Eventually got a voucher from Avianca. I paid for a ticket to get money back, not a voucher. Kayak where is my money!"
Cons: "The food was really out of the Avianca standard. The quinoa “salad” was frozen. I asked the flight attendant and he told me it was supposed to be room temperature, but it was crystallized. Understand it was Ash Wednesday and no meat was serve (cheese quiche was ok)."
Pros: "Everything was just fine"
Pros: "Entertainment makes flight go faster. Many choices"
Cons: "the Food (. Snack) not the best choice of ham empanada and rice chips plus something else I didn’t even tried."
Pros: "Had a row upgrade"
Cons: "Ground personnel at IAH should handle luggage misplaced better. Had to wait 90 minutes for luggage to appear, since no one was able to explain why it never came out on the carrousel."
Pros: "service and punctuality"
Cons: "time management for connecting flights with star alliance partners. I had 1:45 min for a connecting flight to Cancun and because of immigration procedures the baggage claim took 1 hour to give me my luggage, making me miss my connection and having to spend $600 on a crappy hotel in Cancun. Very bad"
Pros: "Ir was ok"

Cons: "stop making a billion announcements."
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Service. The plane"
Cons: "Hicieron perder mi equipaje."
Pros: "Crew were super friendly, helpful & spoke both Spanish & English. In flight entertainment touch screens didn’t work properly. Therefore I couldn’t use behind & the customer behind me kept pushing my chair, in an attempt to get her touch screen to work"
Cons: "Touch screen entertainment"
Pros: "Service was perfect, flight on time, will use Avianca anytime."
Pros: "Todo muy bien gracias muy profecionales."
Cons: "From NY to the San Salvador we arrive safe excellent fly. What I did not like was to wait 4hours and 54 minutes . And to Waite 3 more hours almost the fly from El San Salvador to Panama and the fly was for 1 hour and 54 minutes that’s was too much to wait and was very awful. Avianca food did not like it. Thanks,"
Cons: "Delayed flights all the time"

Pros: "Voucher for lunch"
Cons: "No accommodation to change flights. No honest updates."
Pros: "Very smooth day at the airport and in travel. Thank you Avianca"
Cons: "I didn't use my flight. Bought insurance but when I tried to change my flight it cost more that just buying another flight."

Cons: "I really like Avianca. No suggestions for improvement. Keep up the good work."
Pros: "Good time and good customer service"
Pros: "Tasty little sandwiches, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Lost our bags in Panama City even though we had a five hour layover."
Pros: "Plane is fine"

Pros: "When I bought the ticket, it was the best company selling Thank you very much"
Cons: "I always use kayak to buy my tickets"
Pros: "We had great seats with lots of leg room."
Cons: "Boarding took forever"
Pros: "Airplane was clean, modern, and very accommodating (cup holders, usb port, large touch screen entertainment systems for which they provided headphones FREE of charge, free hot turkey and cheese mini croissant with a mini cold doughnut, fresh drinks). Staff were also super nice and accommodating, flight was smoothe. Oh...and seats leaned back quite a bit more than on other airlines i've used in the past."
Cons: "I needed to change the date,,,,but no answer at Avianca....so I ended up wasting the full amount I paid.NEVER AGAIN do I use KAYAK!"
Cons: "My tv didn't work even when i report that to the different person of the crew no one do anything and also they ignore me."
Pros: "the flight was good"
Cons: "Personal attention was pour,just like to do the job.pour courtesy."
Cons: "massive delay in the counter"
Cons: "The time in the check in Line was horrible, why the people who made your check in on line wait around at airport, more that the people don't have check in? It is absurd!!"
Pros: "On time, fast boarding, Second leg was very comfortable with ample leg room."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Poor attitude by crew members. Upon arrival back to the USA, found luggage had been broken and items lost. I spent 1 hour filing paperwork with Avianca- two months later and I have not heard from them. Unbelievable. Will not fly Avianca again."
Cons: "Crowded gates at boarding area. Long bus ride to aircraft."
Seats are fantastic in basic economy.
Gotta love to fly in early only to be told we’re going to sit on the plane for 20 mins on the ground waiting for a gate to open up. Detroit is the worst airport in the US.
The flight crew was very rude to people they thought were ignoring mask mandate. There was a lady that said her mask had slipped down and the flight attendant was very rude to her. When is the mask mandate going to be lifted? I wore my mask the whole time but really ridiculous that I have to still wear it. I have been fully vaccinated since February.
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."
Pros: "The plane needed more leg room."
Pros: "When my initial flight was delayed significantly, the gate agents went above and beyond to help me get on an earlier flight so I didn't get home too late."
Cons: "It was great fir a short flight. And they got me there early."
Cons: "We ordered special meal, and it was even confirmed in the boarding pass but it was never delivered on board.... attendant said they did not get any special meal"
Cons: "My screen wasn’t working. It would have been great if it was."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Left approximately 40 minutes late. Leave on time"
Cons: "More seat space"
Pros: "The crew was great and the service was quick and very nice."
Cons: "It sounds weird but I didn’t know which window was mine so I had one shut and the one in front of me shut during the flight."
Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"
Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."
Pros: "Nice plane and super nice crew."
Pros: "The flight crew were really polite and helpful."
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous."
Pros: "The comfort the professionalism of the staff everywhere I went"
Cons: "Little pricey on rental and hotel."
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews poor toilet smell, business class can smell the poor toilet if the door is opened"
Pros: "More room and comfort than American Airlines."
Pros: "left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "no legroom even in first class."
Cons: "The new "class of service" rules are really awful. "Pay for privilege" is terrible customer service."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Pros: "Arrives earlier than scheduled, no wait time on runway taking off or getting to gate after landing. Rare to not have these delays occur in some form every flight...excellent"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was a rare perfect 10/10"
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed 15 mins early. Staff was nice and attentive."
Cons: "The organization for boarding in zones."
Pros: "The flight from Dallas was on Wednesday the 8th of August. It was scheduled for a 32 minute layover, which turned into a 30 minute layover. My son, who I booked the ticket for, ran all the way to the connecting flight's gate. They'd already closed the doors, and wouldn't let him on. Consequently he had to be re-booked onto the next flight, which didn't leave until 2200."
Cons: "Did I mention that he'd taken a Greyhound bus to Dallas from Memphis on Monday the 6th of August? He got to DFW airport on plenty of time for his flight to Scotland. It should have been DFW to JFK to Glasgow. Delta cancelled his flight. Citing "weather issues." My family researched this, and couldn't find any weather issues in the North East or NY area."
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "I was first in line for a 1st class upgrade. They didn’t upgrade me but when I got on the plane, the flight attendant randomly asked someone if they wanted to move to 1st class because of an open sest"
Pros: "It was a very easy boarding process and everybody I can across seemed to be enjoying themselves."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and the entertainment was not readily accessible."
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."
Cons: "Pretzel mix was lacking in quantity and taste."
Cons: "SofinwS turned off for most of trip"
Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"
Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."
Pros: "Good service, more leg room than American Airlines."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "A simple and pleasant experience!"
Cons: "Everyone was professional and polite."
Pros: "All went smoothly ."
Pros: "We flew first class for the first time. Now I don't think I'll fly any other way!"
Pros: "Small plane. Not a lot of room for carry-ons."
Cons: "Short-ish flight"
Pros: "Just over 2hrs only. Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence due to weather (no fault of the airlines)."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"
Pros: "Nonstop quick flight"
Pros: "Weather, I think, caused a delay for my flight to Atlanta from Dallas which results in missing my connection. I was traveling with my 4-year old granddaughter. However, when I arrived having already missed my flight, I found special assistance area and was able to immediately connect with an agent who booked us on the next flight (last flight of the day to Richmond). Saving the day."
Cons: "All the planes were full and did not have enough room for carry on causing delays and getting the flight off later. The gate agents and crew did what they could to get the plane loaded faster, but they loaded the front first and those in the back could not get past making loading the plane take even longer."
Cons: "Told to drop down a class on arrival at gate."
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is awful in every way imaginable."
Cons: "We booked tickets to Costa Rica with Copa and they just changed our flights to two days later than the booking. They didn’t even bother to inform us of the change we only found out because we booked through Kayak and they let us know. Apparently Copa expects you to frequently check your booking just in case they’ve changed anything and don’t feel the need to inform their customers of any changes they make. Then we were told we could get a Copa voucher to use for other Copa flights for having to cancel our booking and rebook with another airline as a 48 hour change to our flight made flying with Copa not doable for us. But the website kept telling us we had a voucher that was sent to our email but despite repeated attempts it never came through. And spent hours trying to get through to someone on the phone to sort it out with no success ever getting through. My advice. NEVER EVER FLY WITH COPA."
Pros: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Pros: "I was surprised that they served two very nice meals on our flights."
Cons: "The entertainment system had some issues. The headphone that were distributed have a double and single plug to attach to the armrest. Since the armrest had two femal plugs in it then I assumed that the headphone required the two male plugs. That didn’t work. It wasn’t until much later that I tried the single plug from the headphone but that only worked when jiggling it around to make it connect properly. Would have preferred one of the new systems that allow you to stream a movie of your own choice to your own device."
Cons: "Really took 3 hours at airport. Lines"
Pros: "The flight was good!"
Cons: "Normal airplane."
Pros: "Good AND polite service"
Cons: "Entertainment was awuful"
Pros: "Great customer service in a timely matter."
Pros: "It was just fine"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, food was poor."
Pros: "Lots of food during the flight."
Cons: "Plastic cups were really small. I would like a bottle of water."
Cons: "There was a prolonged delay on arrival in Panama, as the gate was apparently in use. They set up stairs (on the runway?) and they transported us by bus to the airport. On the connecting flight to Guatemala, they began boarding an hour before departure, only to wait on a bus to be taken to the aircraft. Apparently the airline doesn't only double book seats on flights, but on Gates on arrival and departure as well? Aside from this particular gripe, the crews were pleasant and the airfare was a relative bargain, so all in all not a bad option IMO."
Pros: "All the steps were efficient and friendly from the ground to the air. The nice attention of the COPA air personnel was also appreciated"
Pros: "Great comfortable flight. Decent sized seat."
Pros: "Under normal conditions, an average Copa flight is better than most other airlines. And even though I can't point at any one particular thing that I liked best, I can certainly say that this was a well-above-average flight."
Cons: "Food is not what it used to be."
Pros: "The food was really good and the flight attendant was really friendly and nice! Great service on the plane. Actual flight crew/boarding crew were excellent, only the check in crew were poor (so overall rating for crew is "okay")."
Cons: "The policy for needing a flight out of the country you are entering NEEDS TO BE CHANGED! Why do you (as an airline company) care how or when I am getting out of a country when the customs control itself doesn't care. If it's a rule for a country, let the country control it! Airlines need to stop enforcing this pointless rule because currently they are the only ones who care. This made for a lot of stress for us trying to get through check-in trying to "prove" we were leaving the country. Awful check-in process/rules. Also, the entertainment system should be more personalized like other up-to-date airline companies with individual TV's for everyone."
Pros: "Old plane with no technology. Flight attendants, 2 males, very unorganized and made you feel they were working at a stadium seling sandwiches. The lady besides me was travelling with all her family, a big group, and by mistake it seems that they ordered 2 gluten free meals. They needed only one. The attendant refused tongive the other lady a normal sandwich!!! He said, yoynare created an issue, now, you have to wait until we finish the service and we will see waht we can do ( we were on the row 6!!!) ant the end she accepted the gluten free because ahe was hungry. Unbelievable answer and zero empathy tonsolve the situation."
Cons: "The quality of service provided by your employees. You really need to work on trainig. Similar issues happened in the second flight. The attitude of Copa employees has been going down the hill in the las year or so."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The food was very good"
Cons: "Seats are SO uncomfortable! Business class seats recline only a little bit and are hard as rocks. They should not sell those seats as business class."
Pros: "I liked how accommodating the staff was with seating for my family, as I was traveling with two young children and we weren't seated together. There was more leg room than most other domestic air travel companies I have been on. There was no upgrade charge for every little thing, such as blankets, pillows, etc. We were fed on each flight, and alcoholic beverages were at no additional charge. The exit tax to leave Costa Rica was included in our ticket, which I was not aware of until I was leaving the country. (nice surprise). Over all, most other airline companies in the USA have made changes that improve their bottom line, but they have completely ruined any favorable aspect of traveling with their airline (American Airlines, Frontier, Southwest, Delta, etc). Copa has done a great job of providing great service and cost for travelers. Please do not change your business strategy by removing some of the above mentioned benefits I enjoyed in order to improve your profit margin. It is refreshing to know there are still air carriers out there that retain the service that is hoped for by most travelers. Also, Roxana and her entire flight crew were outstanding. Thank you , I will fly with you anytime I have the chance."
Cons: "The ticket counter in Managua is unlawfully closing flights when overbooked and telling passengers they were late. Then they charged change of ticket costs for next day flight and did not provide overnight stay. They filled up flight then all agents leave counter so passengers have no one to check in. Then they came back and said it was too late and flight was closed and passenger’s fault. Then they said because bilked through Kayak/Justfly, they said next flight was not available and had to leave on last flight out of Managua the following day. This is unlawful and outrageous activity."
Pros: "Crew were friendly."
Cons: "It’s nice that Copa feeds you, even on short flights. But every option was meat- there was no vegetarian option. (The site I booked through didn’t give me - or at least I didn’t see it- the option to request a special meal.) In this day and age, I really recommend they have a non-meat option. On another flight on this trip, I also asked for hot tea from the drink cart, and they said it was coming, and it never came."
Pros: "Good service , efficient and fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "The quality of the food was excellent but I missed a coffee or tea after dinner and in the morning. The crew was the best I had flew with."
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "There weren’t good options on food, and even it’s a 5 hours flight there was not internet or screen on the chairs."
Cons: "WE DIDNT TRAVEL. WE TRIED TO GET REENBIRTH FOR THE TRIP BECAUSE OF THE STATE IN WHICH PUERTO RICO IS IN, WE DIDNT WANT TO RISK OUR HEALTH TRAVELING AND I HAVE HAD NO LUCK GETTING MY MONEY BACK. I CANCELED THE TRIP WITH COPA AIRLINES ( WORSE COMPANY IN THE WORLD) AND THEY SAID THAT THE PROBLEM IS NOW WITH THE WEBSITE WE BOUGHT THE TICKET FROM. PRICELINE AND I'M GUESSING YOU. ANYWAY, I'M SURE YOUR COMPANY WILL ALSO NOT HELP SO WHY EVEN BOTHER. BUT IF YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN HELP ME GET MY MONEY BACK TO A TRIP THAT WAS NOT SAFE TO TAKE IN FIRST PLACE PLEASE LET ME KNOW."
Cons: "went to the airport to checkin for my flight from lax to panama, with a connecting flight to sao paulo, only to be told that because i didn't select a seat when i bought my ticket over 2 months prior, the airlines sold my seat (they overbooked the flight by 5 people or so). i had to wait at lax for the next flight, which wasn't until 8 hours later. the problem here was that i had bought a ticket to get to rio from sao paulo, and this delay made me miss that flight. so i had to buy another ticket, which was $175. i was only compensated a $400 voucher for missing the flight and for my time. not worth it. the airlines only provide you with a blanket. no pillow."
Cons: "The Bathroom has paper toilet used in the toilet paper place. The girl was talking in Spanish and English but not friendly at all. Also we went to the gate and we could not pass with water that we bought in the airport to the gate and was not another option to get water once that you get to the gate. Not a good trip at all."
Pros: "Almost everything was great!!"
Cons: "The flight was had some minutes delayed!!"
Pros: "Las atenciones son buenas"
Cons: "La comida no es buena para un vuelo de 6 o 7 horas"
Cons: "Rude crew, old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Seats didn't recline, entertainment was poor."
Pros: "LOVED the individual TV's on each seat"
Cons: "They failed to assist my wife who needed wheel chair assistants. They didn't help her at all upon landing and debarking the plane. Left her by herself."
Cons: "Leg room on the flight was cramped"
Cons: "Not even there yet...Apparently plane did not meet safety standards. Inconvienced family that had to drive all the way to Orlando, take time from work, waiting for me to return and I now I'm 5 hours late. Staff was not helpful and advised we go talk to customer service at the airport. The flight was also not the smoothest and left many unhappy customers, that won't return to Copa. I understand things happen but they were very unfriendly about this situation..what's the point of spending all the $ on insurance for this situation to occur and there's no compinsation for it."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "Very crowded. Woke everyone up to serve breakfast"
Pros: "I liked the quick processing, food, and entertainment"
Cons: "My Luggage was lost and sent to Medellin, Colombia, when u arrived to Quito, Ecuador."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seats and several others didn't work I asked for a blanket because I was sick and they didn't have or didn't give one to me."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
Pros: "Short plane ride"
Cons: "Second plane from panama to Costa Rica, the crew embarressed me and my friend and I will never fly on that airline again if Sandie Machida ever works on it. She is the ruddiest and most unprofessional flight attendant and needs extra lessons on costumer service and how she hosts guests."
Pros: "smooth ride no hiccups relatively smooth boarding process nothing tremendously problematic"
Cons: "I ordered a veggie meal and they gave me vegan instead of veggie/dairy My screen was broken so I couldn't use the entertainment system the seats were quite close together"
Cons: "I've flown Copa many times before and it's generally good for low-cost price but this time was horrible, probably because our first time with new baby. First, there was unexpected shock of having to pay $300 at gate for ticket for the baby, even though she is 4 months and sat on my lap the whole time. Never heard of charging for that and we had to pay % of roundtrip ticket cost right there and then. Second, they don't allow early boarding for families with small children. Third, and finally, on the trip back they also suddenly announced a "no checking boxes policy" which I had also never heard of. We had to take a baby swing out of its box, dismantle it, and carry on a large part of it. A total hassle and crew was not very understanding. Definitely think twice about flying Copa if you have kids."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth from boarding to landing- everything and everyone was great!"
Cons: "Everything was great, no complaints here!"
Pros: "Total failure deception! I was denied access to the flight because of going into Peru they said I had to have a round-trip ticket and Copa would not let me on board. I was told this and after standing in line for over an hour waiting to check in at almost midnight in LAX. I spent hours on line I spent hours on the phone trying to recoup the situation. they wanted to charge me $325 to make changes plus other expenses of the airfare. I missed important connections in Peru. I am applying for a retirement visa there I should've been allowed to deal with immigration in Peru . However if it is the regulation of that airline that I'm not allowed in there without a round-trip ticket why did kayak sell it to me? Kayak cost me $539 and change not to mention a week and a half late getting to Peru! Customer service was just pretty much ridiculous I spent a lot of time on hold so somebody could go ask somebody who Ask somebody else a question. I could understand no refund however that was just downright not fair kayak and Copa airline basically screwed me over."
Cons: "See the above"
Pros: "Overall, it was fine"
Cons: "I had issues to check in due to the lack of return ticket"
Pros: "I really like how attentive the staff was."
Cons: "Before departing Chicago, I requested vegan food. When I arrived at the airport, nothing had been requested. The staff in Chicago told me they couldn't promise to get me food to Quito, Ecuador, but that they had put in the request for my returning flights. When returning, I spoke with the staff in Ecuador & come to find out that no request was ever put in. There were only notes of my initial inquiry about requesting vegan meals. Fortunately, the staff was great and were able to get me a vegan meal and told me that they put in a request for my connecting flight. When getting to the gate for my connecting flight the following day, the staff tells me that there is no request for a vegan meal. They were great and were able to get me one, but it was a bit annoying to have to keep dealing with the same issue on all four flights, especially, when I had spoken with someone prior to my 1st flight."
Cons: "Leaving vegas to Panama they checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" .. Arriving in Panama we flew to costa Rica again checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" ... Now almost 11 hours later we arrive in Costa Rica and because my passport was ripped they wouldn't let me in the country and sent me back. Why your airlines couldn't have told me this before I got all the way to Costa Rica and passed two check points I don't know. So you guys said you would send us to Puerto Rico but I would have to by my own plane ticket home... Very disappointed in your airline. And to top it off my boyfriend and I had very expensive osprey packs we were traveling with .. We used a copa plastic bag to wrap them up in Vegas so the strings would not get caught .. When we received our packs in Puerto Rico YOUR employees had taken the bags off and cut my boyfriends 300 dollar bag! I will never fly again with your airline."
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 hours early and they had us line up in a Very slow moving line. When we finally reached the front an hour had gone by and the customer service rep then said we must have an exit flight from Guyana to get our boarding pass. This is the first we'd heard of this although we had researched visa requirements, etc for Guyana. We stepped out of line and quickly booked a flight on our phone, but when we tried to jump back in again the attendant made us wait in line again (a shorter one, but not smart considering the time crunch at that point. Finally we got to the front again and the attendant was very slow about entering our information. Then suddenly she calmly noted, "oh, it's too late to check you in, you can't make this flight." ... We were upset to say the least and after pestering her further about a reimbursement she said we would have to wait until she dealt with all the other customers (a long line of an hour or more) and that she couldn't put us on the next few flights because they were full. Finally she let us borrow her phone so that WE could call customer service and try to deal with it. They of course gave us the run around and we still don't have a reimbursement and will likely never book with Copa airlines again. Hopefully after a few more phone calls we can eventually get reimbursed. :("
Pros: "The free movies and music"
Cons: "absoluty worst bording experience in my life. Entire crew was extreamly rude and disrespectful. Had passangers waiting in line for over 3 hours to check in. My brand new luggage was damaged. My backpack was stabed and destroyed ripped apart with no note. Would never ever fly copa ever again in my life nor would i ever recomend anyone to fly copa"
We are stuck on the tarmac. Landed on time but waiting now
Aa es la mejor aerolínea . La atención es excelente y eficientes
The person sitting next to me took my storage space under the seat but other than that was pretty good service and the food was not terrible.
Missed my connection due to poor weather disrupting AAs entire fleet. Rebooked my flights twice and was still unable to make it home. No offer of hotel compensation despite me being stranded overnight in Houston. Nothing really to do about it- just a bad couple of days to travel. I wish they were a little better at letting us know about delays in good time, as it would have made a difference to my planning.
Left 40 mins late; we were fine on our connection but many on our flight were not.
Cons: "The AC was off while we were waiting to takeoff so it never felt cool in the cabin for the hour(ish) long flight we had. I don’t know if it was the size of plane that made it so we couldn’t have that on while taxiing/waiting our turn to take off or what, but it was too hot and stuffy onboard in Texas on the tarmac. Our next flight from Dallas to Huntsville, AL had the AC on the entire time we were waiting our turn/taking off- the plane was newer and slightly bigger. Not sure what the deal was but it made the flight pretty miserable."
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seating even though paid for preferred. Not enough space for carry on."
Cons: "Crew service"
Pros: "ON time"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, my flights were on time, good selection of movies. That's about it."
Cons: "Their Basic fare should be renamed "Bare-sic" – you have to pay for almost anything. Food choices can be better. I guess they can pay the Munich airport to get better treatment and not having to bus their passengers around."
Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "The communication on the actual flight could have been better. The flight from Houston to Charlotte was not very informative as in weather conditions, traffic, or the time in which we landed was not gone over."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "The plane could have been cleaner"
Cons: "Smoke in cabin, has to return to Houston. Then they never transferred our luggage as promised."
Pros: "Great crew. Easily accessible."
Cons: "Several delays."
Cons: "Gate change and delay in boarding. Delayed landing and made connecting flight difficult"
Pros: "Much better the typical American cattle class. Qantas actually served real food. Cabin was spacious."
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Cons: "Need some sort of gluten free snacks!"
Cons: "Crew was very rude and the inflight food and entertainment was horrible. Food wasn’t edible and my tv didn’t work"

Pros: "Late takoff"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Pros: "Was able to sleep"
Pros: "I decided to travel First Class from Houston TX and that was the greatest choice I ever made. IAH requires travelers to arrive 2-3 hrs early due to traffic or weather conditions. I checked in at 2 pm and waited for my 5 pm boarding call. First class was amazing! I stored my belongings without any issues. I sipped wine and dined on pasta and watched the movie Father Figures with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms. The stewardess was polite and friendly. The food was enjoyable and the passengers were friendly. The bathroom as also immaculate, I was impressed."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "Our bags were lost going to Rome for a wedding and our cloths were in the bags for the brides father and sister bridesmade. No updates and the have my phone number and email address. You would think it was 1968 or something! Unacceptable in this day and age of communication! The wedding is in 48 hours and can’t find our bags? All this was explained to the airline in Rome the baggage handlers etc. etc. still nothing. Absolutely amazing and disappointing!"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."
Cons: "The A319 outfitted in this way is to freaking tight!!! There is not even close to enough leg room for an average sized American male. I'm no taller than six foot and not overweight. You must fix this issue. I will look for other carriers whenever possible."
Pros: "the fly was on time"
Cons: "I don't like central seats"
Pros: "Las pantallas en cada asiento con entretenimiento ideal para los niños u también los adultos y además de ofrecer variadas bebidas dieron un snack."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice trip was uneventful."
Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."
Pros: "This particular trip everything went as well as can be expected. I was upgraded to first on both legs, always a bonus. Crew was friendly and efficient. FYI, this was not AA crew and equipment, was the regional sub. But still, all good."
Cons: "I don't care for the shuttle from the main terminal to the remote. It's crowded and uncomfortable, even for a few minutes."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and caused me to miss another connecting flight to get to my destination, and now need to purchase new tickets."
Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
Cons: "They lost our baggage and communication was terrible"
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

Pros: "Normally I've been on planes where the seats aren't that great! But these seats were wonderful! :) I was out like a baby!"
Cons: "I don't really like the complimentary pretzels."
Pros: "I sat next to my wife"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Cons: "I feel as though I should receive some kind of courtesy credit for the poor condition of the plane, friendliness of the staff, efficiency of the staff, and finally for being 3 hours late because failure to adequately fuel the plane. I was skipped for receiving refreshments, the plane had interior panels falling off. The second flight didn't have enough fuel for a 40 minute flight. The pilot told us that we were delayed for rain for 10 minutes but we did not have enough fuel to circle around. As a result we came back to Philadelphia. I missed a graduation party as a result. I had a poor experience. The flight attendants did not greet me on entrance or exit."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that American Airlines cancelled my 17 Yr old neice's flight from Dallas to Denver over a thing called "timed-out". And had her sleep in a room with a cott instead of a hotel room. And the fact that we as customers pay good money for tickets only to be subject to the airlines way of business. It is absolutely unacceptable!"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was extremely late arriving."
Pros: "It was a stressful experience, arriving late for ur connection flight and find out u cant get to ur destination. I would say that they did compliment us with a very nice hotel so i apologize for the bad review i understand u cant do anything about the weather but was amazed with the hotel"
Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"
Cons: "Legroom, bin space, food"
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Pros: "Reliable way to get to Houston. Very short flight, so doesn't make sense to have food service besides the one drink they offer."
Cons: "There was a name change needed for the flight..they weren’t able to support that at all resulting me cancelling the flight."
Cons: "I left New Jersey during snow storm. Flights had been cancelled on the previous days but our flight was not. It did not leave on time, had to switch planes before we actually took off. My luggage was lost. I did not make my connecting flight. Had sty over in Panama. Got to my destination a day late without my carry on ( checked at the gate...lost). Still have not located my other 2 bags. Very stressful expirence. Will not fly united again. Staff at my lay over was poorly trained at handling the situation and my luggage issue is taking a very long time to correct."
Pros: "Good flight, personal device entertainment, on-plane flight attendant helped switch some seats so my family could stick together"
Cons: "Meddlesome gate agent split my family up before we boarded, lost one of my bags at SFO (got it 1.5 days later)."
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Cons: "taxi time longer than fly time"
Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."
Pros: "First rate service"
Pros: "Delayed, still in Houston waiting for another flight to go back home since last night"
Pros: "Aside from the turbulence the ride was fine."

Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "The food and the long layover"
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, available. Flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and cramped. Cold inside plane. "Free" Wi-Fi free only after you downloaded app. Didn't know I needed to down load app before we took off so then I needed Wi-Fi to download app, which cost money. Noisy inside plane. Ear plugs would be nice."
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself."
Pros: "Missed my flight so I ended up staying overnight in the airport to catch the 5:25 am flight the next morning. One of the cleaning staff found a blanket for me which really helped since it was incredible cold in the airport."
Cons: "Security line at BWI is extremely long and under staffed compared to other airports. There was not enough legroom and the flight attendants pressured people to check baggage when there was plenty of room on the flight to stow luggage."
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Cons: "Though delayed through no fault of the airline, there was very little effort made to hold connecting flight for a few brief moments so that we could catch up to it"
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "Airline personel were all very pleasant and eager to help, just not very effective"
Cons: "I didn't get any food mainly because of the cost. I did get a complimentary drink. I did not get any entertainment but was under the impression there was a cost. Too short of a flight for that."
Pros: "Entertainment via my device instead of one built into the seat."
Cons: "Far too little space between me and the seat in front of me, and that's before the person in front of me reclines their seat."
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "Seats where comfortable in economy plus. And friendly staff"
Cons: "No snacks offered."
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected and the pilot kept communication open to us. Onboarding from Austin was smooth and the agents were friendly at the gate."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge as there was not enough overhead room, delaying getting on/off the plane because my bags ended up in the back of the plane far from my seat. No TVs, tight space / small plane."
Cons: "Limited food and drinks options."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and very friendly. I had them for two flights and they were just as nice after a long day and s rough take off."
Pros: "Polite attendants!"
Cons: "Will definitely recommend to friends!"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "They changed my seating choice."
Cons: "Return trip had small planes"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Turbulence was horrid. Had to re route the landing causing me to miss my connecting flight. united had no other options for 23 hours. Therefore I chose to return to my starting destination. I still had to spend the night at the airport, and missed a 10 hour day of work due to no other flight options. All I received was a verbal apology. Glad I paid for a flight to a one night stay at Denver airport and back."
Pros: "great staff"
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Pros: "The plane waited for all of the lint writing luggage to be delivered which was helpful for me because mine was part of that"
Cons: "Paying for entertainment on the tiny screen – this should always be free"
Pros: "Easy boarding for elderly slow passengers"
Cons: "Crowded seat space"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and we landed early. Although there were no entertainment options on the plane besides wifi, I just watched my own shows on the smartphone. The snack that we got was actually not bad."
Cons: "Seat is still a bit small, even with their updated seats that moved the seat pockets to the top. Cushion is hard and became uncomfortable after an hour o so."
