Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "No tv’s"
Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."

Pros: "The crew was very kind and friendly"

Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Cons: "I tried to print my boarding pass at home the day before the flight, with an error message "please see an Alaskan Clerk". I also tried to get my boarding pass via phone with the same error message. I also tried to go through Cathay's website, no luck. Cathays customer service is closed on Sunday, and Alaskan customer service said they cannot help me. I arrived 2 hours before my flight from SLC to LAX via Alaskan Airlines, and they were unable to print my boarding pass in time to make my flight. I waited 2 hours in line with other people also leaving at 6am, almost all of us missing our flight.... I am extremely disappointed and would like a refund for this trip. I ended up purchasing another one-way ticket to HKG, and will take the return flight home from Cathay."
Pros: "Love that you have complementary wine on short flights and chees-it's were a nice change for a snack!!"
Cons: "My flight back from Salt Lake City has a lot less friendly staff"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful from the moment I walked in to helping me check in to discreetly giving me a seat belt extender. The airplane was comfortable with plenty of space for a coach seat. I really had a good experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "It was the worst flight experience i have ever had!!. Our flight was scheduled for departure at 845 pm July 5th, and did not end up departing until 203 am!! We had to sit in the airport for 8 hrs, i barely had any money left and had to use it on food and snaks while we waited. The staff was very rude. I had asked them different times what was going on, because the time of departure kept changing and what were my kids and i supposrd to do, and they just said sorry and dont know what to tell you. After spending my last bit of money on food for my kids and i, I was told by another passanger that the airlines were giving vouchers for food. They never once in the 4 or 5 times i talked to them, offered or told me about the vouchers. It was a terrible experience all around!! We landed in portland at 330 am and had to still drive 3 hours home. we didnt get home until 630am. Ridiculous!!!! I was and am still very upset about the whole thing. Also the staff that was so rude in SaltLake City, every time i would see a concerned or upset passenger go up to talk to them, as soon as they would walk off the staff was over there giggling with each other about it. So Very RUDE!!! Another passanger said that Alaskan Airlines has habbit of having problems with delays . If this is the kind of experience that comes with flying Alaskan, then i will never fly with them again.!!! or go througj expedia"
Cons: "The Stewarts were also irritated with the screaming kids. Could not hear the emergency information. There should be a better method to entertaining or sitting those with children together I want to blame it on the situation however I need state that the flight attendants were rude while passing out the complimentary food."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Pros: "The free beverages and snack"
Cons: "That our flight got canceled the night before"
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"
Pros: "clean modern airplane, polite air crew, easy to plug-in and charge tablet while in use during flight."
Cons: "food was overpriced meh."
Pros: "all announcements sounded muffled and difficult to understand both on the plane and by women making the announcements just prior to boarding. I upgraded to first class on the flight back to SLC so the return trip was more enjoyable. Non stop is the only way to fly if at all possible. Please have your people speak into their microphones slowly, clearly, and loud enough for their instruction and/or information can be easily understood."
Cons: "you asked about the quality of the "food"; please, crackers for food? The flight was delayed for an hour and then we are served crackers! I have flown both Southwest and Alaska; Alaska is by far the better airline even though your flight attendants act bored out of their mind. In their defense however, dealing with 150+ people in a confined space has got to be just shy of having a frequent nightmare. I will definitely fly with Alaska again."
Pros: "Good trip with good Ser vice."
Pros: "My return flight was precisely on time, boarding was efficient and the offer for a free chat service while in the air (though I didn't use it) was a nice touch."
Cons: "While my flight was short and snacks weren't necessary, I was pretty underwhelmed by the snack offerings."
Pros: "Really like the E175."
Pros: "The bump to first class was awesome as was the crew."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "My seat was in the premium class somehow and I loved it. Perfect timing with boarding and seating. The crew was very attentive and kind."
Cons: "Entertainment wasn't available."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late. I wasted an entire day sitting in the airport. You knew that the flight was late hours in advance and should have texted or emailed me to say as much. Instead, i checked in on time, and within 10 minutes we went from 'On Time' to four hours late due to equipment and crew. Very inconsiderate and unappreciated to your customer. The flight should have been free after such an inconsiderate gesture on your part. Instead, you send me a gift certificate that obligates me to spend more money with you in order to redeem it, and then within a certain period of time. If I have choice in the future, I'll lean toward a different airline than yours. You clearly do not value my time nor my business."
Pros: "Will try to avoid Alaskan airline at all cost"
Cons: "They forced me to take my luggage in San Francisco. My flight was to HK. I bought that as one ticket with transfers and they treat my Asian travel as a separate ticket even though it was suppose to be as one. Very disappointed. At the gate in SLC lady harassed me about my passport bag on my neck. Something wrong with their heads! How about harassing passengers if they have hats or coats?"
Cons: "Having to walk up 3 flights of stairs from the plane to the arrival terminal."
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "It was a very long flight, but no meal or entertainment was provided. On other airlines I've flown in the past, these things were included on international flights."
Pros: "inexpensive flight"
Cons: "Although flight was full and too many carryon bags they wouldnt do skycheck (gate check) except for those with status. REALLY!?!?"
Pros: "Was able to upgrade to first class when checking in online. Wonderful"
Pros: "How smooth the ride was. It arrived early."
Cons: "They counted my small purse as a bag. Told me to put my purse inside my backpack then it would be considered 2 bags instead of 3. The flight attendant wasnt clear at all. Did not understand a word. All the flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "When we arrived at the airport there was a long line that was not moving. We were afraid we would miss the flight. We spoke with an Alaska airline representative and they moved us and anyone on our flight to the front of the line to make sure we didn't miss our flight."
Cons: "That there was a long line to check in"
Pros: "Air circulation"
Cons: "Middle seat and space"
Pros: "The price was right, so I chose this airline I'd never been on. Let me tell you, it was the finest flying experience I've ever had. I wish they would fly everywhere, because then we'd be done with the brutal shafting Delta and American and even United dishes out on the regular. Comfortable, friendly, accommodating (usb and AC ports on every seatback), and laid-back, it was perfect. I mean, perfect. AND we got there early."
Cons: "I didn't like sitting there and comparing them to all the other airlines I've ever flown with, because Alaska puts everyone else to shame. It was a positively joyous experience."
Pros: "Flight was on time and staff very courteous."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "When I had to change a flight on Alaska, because of a delayed flight on another airline, the customer service rep from Alaska was unbelievably helpful. Even after I had to hang up mid-conversation to board another plane, she arranged new flights and refunded me the money I had spent on an upgrade for the earlier flight. First class treatment!"

Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

Cons: "The television visual for my row died about half an hour into the flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Cons: "Delayed by over 2 hours"
Cons: "It was a very old plane. Not what I expect from Jet Blue"

Cons: "My seat did move move - and it was very stiff. Not very comfortable for my neck. It was difficult to rest the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was two hours late. Man was too large for his seat so he lifted up the seat divider and sat in my seat as well. Do you have any policies for overweight people that don’t fit in their seat and want to use others by lifting up the seat divider?"
Pros: "Easy boarding and polite crew. Smooth flight all around."
Pros: "Although it was stormy there was very little turbulence and the flight was smooth overall. The staff was great and made sure to come by fast."

Pros: "The person (Jorge at Salt Lake City, Utah airport) who checked us in so polite and kind he is a genuine person who cares about customer service he made my day - Thank you"
Cons: "The 1 hour delay, no reason given. People boarding when they should not have i.e., call for people with disabilities and bunch of people without a disability boarded; call for families with children and those with bigger kids (not one child under 2) boarded. What is the purpose of groups if it is not honored."

Pros: "Nice snacks—root chips!"
Cons: "Considerably delayed but it happens"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Was forced to check a carry-on bag at the gate because there was “no room in the overhead storage space”. After boarding it became clear that here was plenty of room in the overhead storage.

Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Crew was kind and positive even though it was Christmas and our plane was delayed."
Cons: "The TV as teens were outdated and the headphone jack would go in and out and was staticky. Plane was delayed."

Pros: "Help with wheelchair from start to baggage claim was extraordinary!"

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. I had to complain strongly and asked to see the manager. Finally I was able to fly, but after much arguing and stress. Poor experience."
Pros: "fine"
Cons: "no issues. all fine."
Pros: "The most was the attention of the flight attendant and how fast and save we landed. Good vibes"
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. Stick to the sandwich and be sure to have extra mustard and mayo and option. They both are terribly dry. Very far from JetBlue-but nice airline and service."
Cons: "Read the first."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable both ways.. On-time departures/ arrivals. Thanks!"
Pros: "The staff in Bogota were oh so friendly compare to my previous experience in GYE. Same as when coming down from SJO. Beautiful. Keep it up! Friendly atmosphere just a delight, like it should be."
Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone! Pura Vida! Dave"

Pros: "Great Service and flight was without problems or delays. Arrived on time ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Better customer service. Your employees should be te-trained and reminded they are in a service industry where your clients have other options to fly."

Cons: "Plane left 4 mins early knowing that passengers were on a delayed flight."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was the best I’ve seen in coach. Free games, movies, moving map, etc."

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "The only problem with the food was it was all canceled because of rough weather."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home"
Pros: "Surprisingly comfortable for such a short flight. The approach is impressive. Friendly attendants and captain kept everyone updated when there was a slight delay. Was overall a really nice flight"
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Pros: "Crew provided first class service and were in good spirits for a very full flight. Full first class beverage service"

Pros: "You guys did an all around great job and my flight experience was the best I’ve ever had. The quality of the service was exceptional."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Cons: "This was the longest part of a three flight trip back to DCA and there was no movies. This was completely unexpected, so I wasn't prepared to entertain myself for 5 very long hours. It would have been nice to have know this ahead of time so I could have brought a book with me. Early notification thru the app is the way to go."
Pros: "Despite the turbulence and delay, this was possibly the best flight I've ever been on. I have never been treated so well by a flight crew before. Also, the attendant at the gate managed to get my wife seated next to me when our seats ended up separated. Great experience!"
Cons: "Turbulence and delay was bad, but the flight crew made up for it."
Cons: "not prepared in Maintenance to fix a very small problem in an efficient timeframe. Also, this plane was very dirty ..bathroom, walls, seat rails, floors....not good Delta"
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Lisa, the flight attendant, went above and beyond to help solve a situation that occurred during the flight."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."

Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Wi-FI available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "No direct flight in the morning, so had to take two connecting flights, and leave home very early in the morning."
Pros: "Free movies helped make the flight go faster. Also when possible my girlfriend and I were seated together despite having seats assigned at the gate."
Cons: "Being in zone three meant checking bags on every flight. That's a side effect of picking the cheapest tickets so not really Delta's fault but it says that I have to put something here."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "My roundtrip flights with delta were all delayed at least 2 hours. That's what you pay for for a cheap flight. There were no inclement weather and the staff didn't give a reason for the delay."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"
Pros: "Quick trip and relaxing --- no high way traffic issues, accidents or construction hold ups."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I did not like."
Pros: "shorter flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system is not working."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Was ok"
Pros: "I liked the service. It was incredible."
Cons: "I did not like the delay or the continued delay on the runway"
Cons: "We did not board at the scheduled time, although I believe we arrived on time. The crew was demeaning and singled out individuals who were causing the aircraft to not move. It was in a very pretentious manner, not like southwest personnel who have similar antics but with a playful tone. The plane is a small one where bags don't fit overhead and many head bumps occur. We arrived fine which mean the flight was successful but it was not very enjoyable."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."
Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The attendants on this flight were gossiping right behind us and we heard them talk about ignoring calls from people during our wait on the tarmac at LAX. Again we were in the last seats in the plane and this time it was stinky."

All went well thank you

Pros: "On time and good flight"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Maybe less cold the temperature."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process. Hassle free flight."
Cons: "The chicken wrap was terrible!"
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "Compliance with departure times"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Pros: "Que el avion era de 2 filas conn2 lugares"
Cons: "La comodidad.. Son muy estrechos..."
Pros: "Boarding process and crew service were ok"
Cons: "Comfort and entertainment could be better"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Boarding process in Panama is very disorganized"

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."
Pros: "Free meal on a one hour flight!"
Pros: "Bueno"

Pros: "Crew and newer aircraft"
Cons: "Food could have been better in business."
Pros: "The flight was cool, i loved not having to get down the airplane in Costa Rica to conitnue to Guatemala."
Cons: "It was freezing, and they didn't offer blankets just while we were on the plane."
Cons: "Food was really awful"
Pros: "Connecting flight with a meal!"
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"

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: "---"
Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"
Pros: "I didn't expect to be fed on the flight so that was a nice surprise."

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