Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Temperature on ground and in air...stuffy and warm"

Pros: "Quality inside the aircraft"
Cons: "More efficiency on travel times, as in the time that you are supposed to land, you land."
Pros: "I slept the entire time."
Cons: "Internet acces. Phobe chargers. Polite stewardesses."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "4.5 hours late, DAL Alaska employees were unfriendly and unapologetic for this disaster of a flight"
Pros: "Crew and seating was comfortable"
Cons: "The bus ride after the arrival in LA kinda sucked but I understand it’s bc of the construction. A little more heads up would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and so polite. Seats are really comfortable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "All the issues related to a small plane."
Cons: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Really bumpy flight. And flight was late."
Pros: "Loved the WiFi was free and we could watch tv shows and movies on our iPads"
Cons: "A bit bumpy but out of our control"
Pros: "First time to fly out of Love Field. Very good experience. On time flights."
Cons: "Didn’t like having to exit the plane in both San Diego and Spokane in the rain. No exit tunnel into the terminal. The in flight entertainment app was very wonky"
Cons: "Breakfast was incomplete because some idiot forgot to put yogurt and milk in the fridge from the night before."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours. The snacks I wanted were unavailable. When we finally landed we were taken off the plane in the back of the airport down stairs attached to the plane and loaded onto a bus and taken to the airport underground. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "Short flight, generous complimentary drink portions."
Cons: "Another passenger was in my assigned seat. When I called him on it, he acted all confused, but made no effort to move. I had to put my bag in a further bin because there was no room in the one next to my seat and when I returned to my seat, the man was still there. I told an attendant, but the man only gave me the number of HIS seat and told me it was the same. I told him it was NOT the same. I assumed he wanted to sit next to a friend, so I just let it go and the flight attendant just kind of drifted away. I also didn't want to be the one getting tackled by an Air Marshall for causing a fuss. Turns out, that man didn't even know the person he was sitting next to. I suspect he just wanted to get out of the plane sooner. Either way, this shouldn't be allowed to happen - what's the point of choosing your seats if someone else can just take it from you?"
Pros: "Crew was great. Easy on and off plane."
Cons: "Seats were a bit tight. No entertainment"
Cons: "There was only water served then 30 minutes before landing they served juice. We had to ask if we wanted some of the cookies they are suppose to give out"

Pros: "Boarded on time and free movies!!!"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Crews and service are nice"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late."
Pros: "Plane was very clean. Great staff. Overhead space was geat. The aisle was wide enough to pull my roller bag.Best thing was the leg room. It was more spacious than most of your competition."
Cons: "N/A. There was no entertainment: Regional Jet. And the food was...Airplane Food. Not a big deal."
Pros: "Coffee refills"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Got to the destination on time."
Cons: "Stewardess could have cared less. This was an Alaska Airlines flight on Virgin Airlines plane. Nice plane, certainly not the service I expected."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "For no extra charge the seats were comfortable and had legroom, a rarity these days! Great video screen with excellent free content. My bag was right there when I got to baggage claim too."
Cons: "Great flight. Gave the food one star but wasn’t applicable because I didn’t have any."
Pros: "I'm not sure who did it but I got bumped up to First Class. In the plane I was greeted by one of the pilots and an attendant that offered me a bottle of water and a hot towel. I just finished a long hot day in Texas, and the courtesy and comfort I received on the flight just made my day."
Cons: "Too comfortable to notice anything"
Pros: "I would have to get the machine that the crew already tried to fix on a prior flight! My bad luck, for sure. And the2 people next to me talked the entire trip. So I thought I could just listen to music, but no. The flight attendant said that was gone together with the games. Not a good flight for me. I even moved to the bank of the plane, to read my book in peace, only to end up hearing 1 very loud FA talking!"
Cons: "Read above."
Pros: "Everything was so great from boarding to arriving. Perfect flight!"
Pros: "I love Virgin/Alaska planed. The vibe is just super chill and the cabin feels like a lounge."
Cons: "I wish the seats reclined just a bit or that the headrest cushion was more adjustable."
Pros: "I missed my flight by mere minutes. It was my responsibility to make it to the airport with ample time, but the doors closed on me with 7 min until scheduled take off. I understand the rule is that the doors close at 10 min before take off. The gate agent immediately put me on standby for the next flight and notified me that there was a good chance I could get on that flight."
Cons: "Did not get to sample the food as I fell asleep as soon as we got into the air. I kept waking up however because the seats were not very comfortable. There was not any space to recline the seats so my back was upright and it was difficult to be in a comfortable position. I have been in worse seats with other airlines, so the seats on this plane were not terrible, but travelers would benefit from an ability to recline, even slightly, and an adjustable neck padding."
Pros: "Movies & complimentary drink"
Cons: "Wait, delay. Lack of information given in regards to delay"
Pros: "I loved the mood lighting on he plane, as well as the in seat media and food ordering functionality. I’m blown away and will be flying Alaska any time I can get. Probably the most comfortable economy seat I’ve ever sat in."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "The only downside was the plane had no food and the announcement wasn’t made until we were already boarding (they didn’t know either - not their fault). I was expecting lunch since I was in first class, but the crew did as well as they could to provide us with snacks."
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Limited food choices. Uncomfortable seat. No adjustable headrest. And no power outlets to charge devices."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant & accommodating. Anytime you can make it from point A to point B safely then it's a 5star rating in my book."
Cons: "Seats are just so uncomfortable especially for short people."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and did their best on this flight that was not pleasant"
Cons: "Plane was late arriving at the gate to be unloaded and so we where late boarding and take off and the plane late in arriving in San Diego and costing me more for my parking rates. The flight was bumpy and overcrowding is an issue and allowing passengers with bags that will not fit in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Great staff. Quick boarding. Appreciate them greatly."
Cons: "Nothing it was a wonderful experience. Maybe if the weather in DC had have been better"

Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

Cons: "Newer plane with bigger screens"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No suggestions this time just keep doing what you are doing"
Cons: "Absolutely perfect from departure to arrival. Our first time flying jet blue and it was incredible"
Pros: "Yes amazing service all around"
Cons: "Hmmm, let me think ...."
Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "The airplanes lavatory was inoperable when it arrived. Our flight was delayed several times and I had to be in Miami that night because I left early the next morning on a cruise. I had to wind up paying for another flight and going through security again and spending all day at the airport. WORST EX"
Cons: "Overhead bin space"
Pros: "Seat was excellent. I slept 90% of the flight. Being able to bring a personal item on the plane made my day much easier."
Cons: "Flight options could have been better. I had to fly at 6:30 to get the best price that I could afford."
Pros: "Wasn’t a full flight so middle seat was open making it more comfortable. Smooth ride. Good crew."
Cons: "TVs weren’t working so they had to re boot mid way through, all movies re started so had to wait or re watch the parts you did already. Also my screen cut out several times and had a green hue."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional as always"
Cons: "JetBlue services Boston with its Embraer fleet, which is horrible. Got water dripped on me by the AC, chair didn’t recline, bathroom had no running water, plane was delayed due to mechanical problems. Thank god they’re getting rid of these planes."
Pros: "Unlimited snacks, comfortable roomy seats, refreshing looking cabin, family boarding"
Cons: "On time flight"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Seat cushions need to be replaced! Plane seats were not cleaned either"
Pros: "They had snacks"
Cons: "Although my wife and I booked our flight together we did not get to sit together. My wife paid for the $54 upgrade but the only benefit was she could bring a checked bag. We both got middle seats not near each other. I believe she should have gotten a better seat with her upgrade but that was not the case. Normally jet blue is great. I have had them get my family seats together even when we didn’t book together. At that time they surprised me at how customer oriented they were and I gave an excellent rating. This time was very disappointing. We paid for the upgrade but got limited benefits. I am surprised at the difference in customer care in just a few months."
Cons: "Couldn’t take the flight - missed the outgoing"
Pros: "Smooth flight as usual and friendly crew"
Pros: "On time, great service, clean plane"
Pros: "I had my 3 hours wasted. All or some TV are busted and doesn't work. It's loose connection as front seat move sometimes you see sometimes you don't. I used to book JetBlue only bexause.tbus is the only airline that offers TV service and but it's time has changed and service has degraded as it seems. I would recommend to fix the TV and or at least put bigger screen. I fly from India to Dubai that is same flight time and they offer same service that they offer in their emrites double floor plane except smaller screen but same function. I am disappointed with the entertainment service and going forward I would not be willing to go with JetBlue unless I don't have any choice. Thanks Neo"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing, zero stars in every caterory available"
Cons: "Only 1 flight per day to from Austin, Tx. Our 4:11 pm flight on Monday, Oct 9th was delayed 2 houra bc of weather in NY. That was understandable. However, our flight was delayed another 4 hours bc of no gate, held up earlier flight to Boston bc of late passenger and countless other issues. Such as maintence, rebooting plane systems, etc. Employees were clues and every employee gave different explanations. Once we boarded the flight crew was nasty and rude. Lastly, after boarding we were held at gate for another half hour before taking off. This was first time in many years i flew on jetblue bc i switched to american post jetblue tarmac nightmare. I will never fly jetblue again ever."
Pros: "Comfortable seating. DIRECTV on every seat."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "In the overall trip was pleasant. Boarding was efficient as it can be. Thanks for having the fly-fi because my screen setup wasn't working so I was able to access my amazon prime account. Great staff and safe trip."
Cons: "The delay sucked. Not sure what caused the delay but definitely making it home much later than I wanted to be. Unfortunately, the was using didn't work even after the reboot. I"

Pros: "Great seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1:30."
Pros: "They plan has a a lot of key room"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket I was not able to pic a seat. I am big guy and seat choice is a big deal. This was an obvious attempt to get you to upgrade to an even more leg room seat for a cost. When I called the customer no service line they told me i have get that done at the airport. I got to the air port early and they said you have to get that done at the gate but you can upgrade if you want. When i went to the gate they said you have to wait until 30min before the fight but you can upgrade. These are just shady sales techniques."
Pros: "Great service and comfortable seats"
Pros: "JetBlue employees were friendly"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed with no notification to me I volunteered to check my bag at the gate and JetBlue lost it and hasn't refunded me Screaming children"
Pros: "Easy flight. Enjoyable. Great leg room."
Pros: "It was my first time on JetBlue and the ride is extremely comfortable."
Cons: "The departure time of the plane was moved foward by 2 hours and we got no notification from Kayak or Jetblue. When we arrived at the airport they said we were lucky to catch the flight because it had been delayed. If the plane was not delayed, we would have missed our connecting flight with no communication."
Pros: "What a difference from the cut rare airlines! We had been taking spirit in the past, but am so glad we used jet blue this time. We never got the feeling of just being cattle herded to a destination. Using a real airline is the only way to go!"
Pros: "Jetblue performs at its usual high level. Friendly staff, welcome from Pilot, and standard package of beverages."
Cons: "The E190 on this route is showing its age (as are many of Blue's E190s). Lack of power, tiny video screen, marginal resolution point to the need for an overhaul of this jet. They are apparently in progress of updating the E190 fleet. Much prefer Blue's A320's which in my opinion is a great ride."

Pros: "It was hard to not laugh at the gate confusion, time confusion, and clear general incompetence of the thousands of airport staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold.

Pros: "We left early and landed early. Nice staff and attentive. Snacks. (better get rid of the terrible so called barittos-they were awful. Cookies not bad and the snack.

Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal.

Good but delta needs to be more upbeat about the boarding process in Atlanta

Snarky flight attendant needs a break since she is obviously appears burnt out.

Thank you Delta for always being #1 when it comes to service.

Pros: "They ran out of salads so that was a little disappointing."
Cons: "The flight would be more comfortable if we had more leg room."
Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit rushed and the gate agent was visibly irritated by some passengers who didn’t check their bags."
Pros: "I can take an isle seat."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."

Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Cons: "it is a shame that for an international trip, with a "superspecial rate" of almost 700 USD. We still had to pay to register 1 piece of luggage. Why are these flights NOT considered international and allow at least one piece of registered luggage? They seem to be considered international when it comes to the ticket price."
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "Ontime boarding, few minutes delay made up enroute for ontime arrival."
Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."
Pros: "Food available was good."

Cons: "Tried to get an upgrade at the gate and they said our ticket wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "The Flight Personnel was extremely helpful and kind."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We were not able to choose our seats until we got to the airport. Which was a waste of time since we did online check in but still needed to go to the self check for seat assignment. Then by that time it was too late to try to get a seat with my wife who is very afraid to fly. Overall not a good experience"
Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Pros: "Great cup of coffee, and some real lookers that were easy on the eyes :) on this flight. For an early morning flight this is always important. This was a connecting flight."

Pros: "All the crew in CR and Guatemala were very courteus and professional."
Pros: "Comfortable and puntual"
Pros: "Puntual, comfort"
Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Changed gates at Panama without any alert until boarding time."
Cons: "Food service was good. Staff were nice."

Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "We actually arrived earlier than schedule. Very impressed."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Pros: "Super nice crew! Gave us food even though it was a 50 min flight."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional service combined with good food"
Pros: "2 free checked bags, and hot sandwich and drink in coach"
Cons: "Can't think on anything"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Poor customer service for our friend who had a problem with her ticket."

Cons: "I already wrote this in their customer feedback, and I haven't gotten a response."
Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was a short flight....they made the trip comfortable, and on time..."
Cons: "No complaints....."
