Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"

Pros: "The food was amazing. Thank you!"
Pros: "The food was very good, I liked vegetarian options and my stomach doesn't hurt after the plane food as usual. I like the bathrooms clean and nice smelling soap. The crew was very attentive and eager to please their guest but consistent and insisting on the safety rules (belts buckled up and seats in upright position)"
Cons: "There wasn't many good options for entertainment. Only a couple new movies although I liked the TED talks. Also I liked the plane but I wish there were some foot steps and more comfortable head support on the seats. I didn't like also strange option for Golden members in economy seats to be able to "order" food before regular people. There were only 3 options and everyone had the same choice. So basically all that crew does is just asking which course gold members want an hour before serving. It seemed silly with no actual benefit."

Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."

Pros: "It was something unexpected"
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "It was a long flight from US but was comfortable. Staff was courteous."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."
Pros: "It was a short flight, so no problems"
Pros: "The airline did not give me 2 seats next to each other like I had booked more than 6 months prior to the trip. They refused to give my friend and I the 2 seats I had iriginally paid for and booked so we were stuck in the very last row of the entire plane with no reclining seats and terrible service for over 13 hours . Completely awful and really disappointing"
Pros: "I like the new 350 plane. Comfortable seats, good entertainment and connections. I especially like that you can display cameras from outside the plane on your seat's screen."

Pros: "Business class is top notch in Qatar airways. From the moment you get in the Business Cabin, you start feeling the great service onboard. The crew is great, the seats are very comfortable, and the food is very tasty along with the wine pairing. Overall, the experience was well worth it!"
Cons: "The problem was the boarding in Miami International airport, it was quite disorganized even for business class, but more so for economical class."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."

It was a big problem to us, it was necessary to go in the second part of the economy sector to stay over the wifi. The crew did not solve the issue."

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Cons: "Extremely slow check in process, which translates in suitcase left behind and all the inconvenience of that. No on board entertainment. Aircraft is very old"
Cons: "They tend to be very sensationalist with the people sitting on the exit road. It would be nice to have some food for the people that are vegetarian, something; just don’t ignore them and continue walking. This happened in both flights. Not even chips. Nothing."
Pros: "crew was excellent as ell as the counter personal"
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."

The kioks were not operational. My husband was flying in from Tucson on American Airlines and his flight was delayed. He was to join us on our international flight home. I tried to alert the staff well in advance that he would be arriving late but would be there in time to actually get on the flight. The staff was not helpful with this matter at all. They did nothing to accomodate these special circumstances that were beyond our control. Even finding a staff member that was available for me to talk to was a challenge. My husband’s flight arrived at the airport an hour before takeoff but nothing was done to try to get him on our flight home even though I had explained the problem 2 hours before that. As a result, he was not able to travel home with us on Copa and had to buy a ticket home on JetBlue. We will not choose Copa again."

Pros: "La puntualidad para abordar y la llegada a mi destino, buen avión."
Cons: "No nos facilitaron audífonos, la comida no fue muy buena y no encontré espacio para mi equipaje de mano, la política de la aerolínea debería ser que el pasajero pueda subir con un equipaje de mano o una mochila, ya que suben con ambas, mas fundas de compras y ocupan todos los espacios para el equipaje de mano."
Pros: "Everything was ok, just the way things should always be. So I'm very please with the service."
Pros: "excelente!!!..gracias mejor no hay!!."
Pros: "The flight was safe and comfortable."
Cons: "Neither flight had individual TV screens, and a vegetarian option was not available by default-as it had been on the flight there."
Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "To board the plane in Panama City passengers had to go through a second security screening and were therefore unable to bring bottled beverages onto the plane. Once through this second security there was no where to purchase water. The free never came through the plane to offer more beverages after the meal service. Many passengers got up and corralled at the back of the plane to get water. I watched a flight attendant drink from one the large bottles herself and then presumably serve to a customer."
Pros: "Everything was fine, long haul flights tend to be stressful but crew managed to make it as comfortable as possible."

Pros: "nice new appearing lane"

Cons: "Flight was cramped no space on airplane shoulder to shoulder with the person next to you"
Cons: "They dindt let my whole family of 4 board the plane, because we were supposed late to check in 2 hours prior to the plane leaving, the ordeal with the stuff and discussions back and forth git us exausted and we left the airport ."
Cons: "Gate switching with no notice"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight due to some technical difficulties. They told us to wait, while there were no other plane to replace. Then ( only in spanish) they announced that there is no more flights this day and we need to go to the Copa counter to rebook our flights. everything was super unorganized. I waited 6 hours to get my new flight. It was a mess. Never again i am tlying Copa Airlines"
Pros: "first time flying COPA, and i got to say A+++ would fly on again -in a hearbeat."
Cons: "Nothing, everything went smooth and the travel experience pleasant."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and attentive, which is very refreshing. Also, they were constantly offering beverages or would come over quickly when passengers would call them."
Cons: "The food in economy class was average. I think the company would need to improve the menus and available food options. I also think they should provide a snack about an hour before landing, i.e. mixed nuts. I also think COPA should have the TSA pre-check option available."
Cons: "This is the worst plane I have ever flown on. The space between seats is so small I couldn't even sit straight. I am a tall man and thankfully the flight was not full because I was forced to sit sideways the whole time. I will try in the future to never take a copa airlines plane for any amount of time for any trip."
Pros: "Plane, food, safety"
Cons: "Flying attendants"
Pros: "Lots of leg room despite being at the very last row. The seats even could recline a fair amount. Hot breakfast, with good food."

Cons: "Little or no entertainment"
Pros: "It was an good trip"
Pros: "Packed plane with few comforts. No in-seat entertainment. Food was a joke. Next time i will fly Jet Blue as the price was very comparable,"
Cons: "The plane was very old fashioned with outdated seats."
Cons: "Airplane's overall conditions were mediocre. Toilets were extremely dirty. Seats were quite uncomfortable. Even the first class section wasn't worth the upgrade. Was unable to book vegetarian option for food. Can't imagine why they assume everyone eats chicken. I'd think twice before flying Caribbean."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that the fares are none transferable to family members. I like the fact that I can travel very early in the morning. I'm thinking of changing companies,it is hard to come up with so much money, and reasons a raises and you can't make the trip you should allow to transfer it to your family members at least.smh"
Pros: "The staff was very good"
Cons: "Old aircraft"

Pros: "I was a bit skeptical after reading the reviews and wanted to cancel my flight, but Charmain_Marie convinced me to give CAL a try for myself and I did. It was an excellent trip from web check-in to reaching to the airport and check-in luggage. The flight crew was very polite, warm meal, tea or drink. Pilot was great, flight was great apart from a few turbulence. We reached our destination five minutes before scheduled time. So overall my trip from JFK to KIN was excellent I have nothing to complain about. Experienced things for "yourself" don't rely on the reviews that you read because if I did, I would have cancelled my flight. Thank-you CAL for my marvelous experience with you and you just gained a new customer. They say one bad apple spoil the bunch, but if you didn't have a bad experience with CAL don't follow the few that may have maybe because they don't adhere to rules and regulations. And yes TSA do check bags for security reasons because my TV was opened for inspection to see if it was ok and resealed with the TSA inspection card inside, nothing was missing from my luggage's. Thanks CAL excellent experience with you guys."
Cons: "We were to depart NY at 1.40 arrive Kingston 4.40 I arrived Kingston after 1.00 am and home after 2.00 am because my drive had left me not being able to make contact with me. Unhappy Customer. Kamaal Josephs"

Pros: "Food was OK and price was reasonable"
Cons: "Personnel are check in was so abrupt and unprofessional and spent most of his time chatting with other staff. They were so unhelpful and unpleasant. I was not even greeted upon arriving at the counter first word out of his mouth was passport that's it. We had a long delay and crew didn't even offer us drinks in first class until we were almost ready to take off."
Pros: "Quick check ins..when you arrive early to the airport."
Cons: "The food is terrible on the flights."
Cons: "Had been traveling quiet a bit the service is great."
Pros: "The schedule of the flight was good"
Cons: "- pushy flight crew and not responsive - the pilot missed the landing at Cheddi Jagan airport twice because of bad weather and then told us that he would have to land in Piarco if he didn't make the landing on the third attempt. What pilot does that? I thought it was a joke at first but it was real. I have been traveling back and forth to Guyana for over 20 years and this was a first. Pilots have said in the past that there is bad weather but not attempt to land. Startling customers saying that you missed the landing is the completely not the way to go."

Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, the lines were so crazy that luckily we checked in online which allowed us to go to a separate line. My sister and I decided to upgrade to first class and it was downhill afterwards. I understand that their was severe turbulance and Thank God for the crew and getting us out. The problem was there they ran out of food for first class and no wine was offered. Nothing that would be considered as first class. My sister had to ask for water. No amends were made. DId not enjoy at all."
Pros: "The flight crew and flight was quite good."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, I am a vegetarian and did not order a vegetarian meal but the staff made it so very easy for me."
Cons: "I was trying to do a web check in and while it seems possible I was sent in circles and was still not able to check in online. I was very frustrated with their online process, but then I consoled myself because I am very aware of the unconscious attitude of Trinidad services."
