Cons: "Check in at Dulles was chaos, even though we had completed online check in and just needed to do our luggage drop. I am pregnant and was carrying a 2 y/o toddler and had no preferential/priority treatment. Though we arrived 2+ hours before our departure, we only just made our flight. Ground crew were unfamiliar with Brazilian laws on entry for citizens with expired passports. Our bags never left DC and we received them over 72 hours later in Sao Paulo, after much confusion. We were not offered any means of compensation for this inconvenience."

Pros: "Overall this is one of the best airlines I often travel with. Their cost is economic compared to the other airlines flying and their customer service attention is one of the best. They always have food and drinks available to people and obviously have a priority when it comes to children. Their seats in economy are somewhat spacious and international flights always have good entertainment with their touch screen. You can listen to music, watch movies and even TV shows without any extra cost."

Pros: "Nice Avianca flight crews and ground crews on all three flights. All flights on time. All seats had good leg room. Soft landings."
Cons: "I didn't know where I should go after Customs in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I was connecting to a domestic flight to Goiania, Brazil, so I needed to drop off my checked bag somewhere to be sent to the plane's cargo. I went to the check-in desk for Avianca, and then they pointed me to the nearby bag drop-off area, which had a 45-minute line. The time wasn't too important for me in that I made it to boarding 25 minutes before the flight--the part that would have been better would be to have on the itinerary that I go to the Avianca check-in/bag drop-off area in Terminal 2 after Customs."

Cons: "The Service of The tripulation they didnt give US a greeting at The begining of The flights not even at The end of The fligth it was my first flight in avianca and The last because i never met The captian he never intruduced him self"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "The second flight (Bogotá to Rio de Janeiro) was delayed about 3 hours. The crew mainly spoke Spanish and would not say what was going on unless you asked them. Food was okay and the Airline was completely unorganized. You can only pick your seat 24 hours prior your flight! Price is good but that's about it!"

Pros: "To do the right maintenance to the plane because I couldn't use the earphones. The plug of the previous earphones was broken and a piece of it was inside the hole."
Cons: "Lack of supervision, because I had: (i) long delays to receive my bags with not explanation at the begining. Later on the "supervisor" told us that some of the bags were left on the road and we had to wait until a belt was available and (ii) in the maintenance of the plane in regards with the seat equipment."

Cons: "There was a large couple that boarded the plane at the last moment, the flight attendant escorted them to their seats which was right next to me. I got up so they could sit down and they covered half of my seat. The flight attendant saw this but still told me to sit back down. I tried to explain to him that the lady was sitting on top of my seatbelt and halfway on my seat. I was told again to sit down. Trying not to cause a problem I just tried to sit down. My entire right side was in Constant contact with her entire left side of her body. Once we got started taxing the flight attendant walk by I stopped him and explain to him there's no way I could do the entire flight sitting like this. Luckily there was an extra seat that he was able to move me too. My issue is I do not understand how this was not prevented so that it would not be an issue. There were plenty of seats available they could have told her and her husband who were both very large they had to buy two seats. Or there was business-class seats available that they could've been put in."

Pros: "Súper crew!"
Cons: "Only one movie for a flight of 4.5 hours. The food tasted like frozen TV dinners."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything, I'll never use them or recommend them to anyone, worst ever!!"

Pros: "comfort and food/beverages"
Cons: "panama"

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Great customer services"
Cons: "Seats hard"

Pros: "My first time flying with Copa and I really enjoyed it. The staff was kind, the on flight meal was great and I really liked the entertainment device for each person on the back of the chairs."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The people were friendly and professional. Everything was as expected. The ticket cost was about 200.00 more dollars than the other discount carriers but they did not include any baggage. When I compared apples to apples and looked at the 2 bags I wanted to check the price was within 20 dollars ant the Copa flight was at a better time. The Copa flights had food service and the meal was good, chicken and pasta. Would it have been worth 10.00 at the airport? Yes it would have been. 1 meal each way would more than make up the difference. All in all the flight worked out to be at a better time with friendlier service and an equal or better value for my total cost. The flights were on time. Nicely done."

Pros: "We left on time and the crew was very nice and professional. Loved the fresh fruit for breakfast."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable for business class. I liked the space and width but the seat and headrest were very hard. And the bathroom in business section was the smalllest ever on an international flight."

Cons: "The food choices are limited foe vegans."

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Some seats had them others did not. Mine did not work."

Pros: "Everything was great good service"

Pros: "The crew was super nice and accommodating"
Cons: "The airline was international, and it was freezing! Also no wifi or outlets to charge your electronics."

Pros: "Direct flight from IAD to PTY. The flight left on time and arrived early. Bags came out quickly."
Cons: "The announcement of sections boarding where barely heard and caused confusion when boarding. My seat was broken. The recline button was broken and it made in difficult to adjust the seat. I'm 78 inches tall and need every bit of room I can get. The adjustable headrest was also broken, it would stay in position which mean t that it was pretty useless to me."

Pros: "Crew, food provided on boars"
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for over an hour before taking offfood"

Cons: "No explanation was given"

Cons: "Apparently is high season and therefore they refused to take my extra luggage that I was willing to pay. I was told to throw my luggage away. I don't live in the US, thankfully my niece does and she was able to take the luggage home. Now I don't know when I'll get my stuff"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats: on one leg (Panama to Mexico City) the seats are just like in Economy class, only a wider and more legg-room. But no FOOT REST, which is essential in a long flight. Laniding in Mexico was via a staircase and a bus (no fault of Copa). Reservation via BOOKING turned out to be a problem (could not make changes in flights). I had to do it via "influence", a pain in the neck."

Pros: "I usually fly on Copa and I'm pretty much satisfied. The Crew is always attentive and willing to accommodate."
Cons: "On this trip I was not particular pleased with the option of Food provided, and the size of cup provided for drinking is for kids."

Pros: "Food was awesome, attendants were pretty nice, and it was a great first international flight experience."
Cons: "I was a little cramped on the plane."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly."

Cons: "seats and plane were old. Business class seats need an upgrade badly. They should discount the tickets if we're made to fly in 25 year old seats. Business class service was rushed. It was like the goal was to get your items up and collected early so the attendant could disappear for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "Lisa Gilliard attended to us in business class. She was efficient, professional and top notch. Service was excellent under her leadership."

Pros: "I love the attendance of the host. The flight was smooth. People were friendly with me. The host spoke good English language, I almost missed my flight but I was helped to get on flight."
Cons: "The seat was quite uncomfortable. I could not sleep properly had a bit of neck pain."

Cons: "No hubo buen entretenimiento ni alternativas y en el viaje de vuelta faltó el café en un viaje de cuatro horas y cuarenta minuto"

Pros: "Excellent experience!!!"

Pros: "the woman at the recheck counter for united Joanne ...helped me to get on an earlier flight and saved me an 8 hour layover. The woman is an angel......."

Cons: "The flight attendant was rude."

Pros: "Attentive crew members."

Pros: "Give out head phones and the food is not bad"
Cons: "Plane was late and took too long to board so that when we we t to take off we had lost our spot then waited for 3 hours to get going, about 90% of the passengers had a connecting flight which they obviously missed and then they blamed the weather. Sent us to a hotel in a ridiculously disorganized fashion for which they had 3 hours plus flight time to prepare for. New boarding passes were a mess and had to wait a long time to get mine printed cause they forgot to. In the morning in order to save money they sent us on a stupid early bus so that half of us could be sent back to the airport, so that meant we missed breakfast and the 2 hours plus of sleep."

Cons: "I was unable to travel with three suitcases, despite the fact that I was willing to pay for the third bag. I had to put some of my stuff in another bag and was charged overweight. What infuriates me is the fact that at no point of the web check in process I was warned about this. No warning, no email, nothing. I am never using Copa Airlines again and I am warning everyone I know not to use this third-rate airline ever!"

Pros: "A fly attendant try to make up for me for forgetting our lunch."
Cons: "the disorganization of the other costumers who were changing seats almost make me lose my connection. The crew did not serve our lunch."

Pros: "I loved the food and the flight attendants' customer service. It was awesome and they were very nice."
Cons: "That I almost was left without food because the flight attendant passed by me because I was sleeping . Although it my fault because it's not fair to wake a passages up. But for food I think it is fair."

Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 5 hours"

Pros: "Everyone was really helpful"

Cons: "We were delayed for a long time without much information given. I arrived 18 hours late to my destination and missed many important appointments."

Pros: "El entretenimiento y la atención de la tripulación"
Cons: "El abordaje debería hacerse de atrás hacia adelante, ya que es incómodo para los que estamos en lis asientos delanteros del pasillo cuando pasan los viajeros con carteras o maletas grandes También me gustaría que este cuestionario fuera en español"

Pros: "Plane was very new and clean. Love the individual TV units on the back of chairs"

Pros: "they had a vegetarian meal for me :)"

Cons: "they don;t let her board they saying ticket is not confirm and we have itnerery with all confirmation and we lives in belize from belize to cancun in bus 8 hours .so overall very unconvinence"

Cons: "Very abrupt service. Not much room."

Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."

Pros: "Fast food service"
Cons: "Very narrow seats in coach. If you’re sitting next to a larger person expect to be crunched."

Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "WIFI please for the god sake it’s a transatlantic flight"

Cons: "The seat from DFW to SLC was designed for people who have a sever slouch. Very uncomfortable seating position that isn’t anatomically correct."

Pros: "787 seats have better legroom & recliner"
Cons: "Vegetarian food needs lot of improvement"

Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."

Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."

Cons: "We landed early but the plane was late 50 minutes into gate. Plane went pst our gate twice, just driving around the terminal."

Cons: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"

Cons: "Speaker volume was too high."

Cons: "Wish seats were comfier and more legroom"

Cons: "Small, cramped seating"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"

Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour (which wound up being a 3.5 hour delay in total, with all the continual delays that pursued afterwards(, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."

Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane and dificult to sleep No breakfast when we arrived in Brazil In Lima, after the flight from Miami, the period for the connection to Brazil was very short. At the airport, when I inquired about attention to get through the security line, the answered was that we have to ask for permission to pass before the passagens that was waiting in queue."

Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."

Pros: "Voo pontual, atendimento da tripulação, serviço de bordo, qualidade da aeronave."
Cons: "no complaints"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"

Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."

Pros: "Over 2 hours delayed, plans ruined"

Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"

Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."

Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."

Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."

Pros: "Biscoff!"
Cons: "lack of ent. options"

Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."

Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"

Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"

Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."

Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."

Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."

Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."

Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"

Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "no food"

Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss."

Cons: "flight was rebooked to a terrible time, the next day, had to spend over $300 for hotel, extra parking, extra meal, extra day on rental."

Pros: "The flight was efficient and the crew were courteous."
Cons: "There isn't much to dislike, but it certainly wasn't anything extraordinary either."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."

Pros: "O bom humor do comissário de bordo."
Cons: "Atraso (nos voos de ida e de volta) sem que tenham sido dadas explicações ou informações."

Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."

Cons: "Never made it to destination"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"

Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."

Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"

Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."

Pros: "We liked our friendly and attentive flight attendants, and our safe travel to our destination. Thank you!"

Pros: "Everthing, except the typical cramped quarters."

Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."

Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."

Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."

Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."

Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."

Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."

Cons: "My Bags were sent to wrong flight and now still waiting for my luggage. Trying to call the numbers to track my bags and the number is always busy. I don't know when I will have have my bags. It is very frustrating"

Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."

Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."

Pros: "that the plane landed in one piece"
Cons: "it was late 1.5 hours it badly was overbooked hand luggage hysteria lack of aircon while on the ground overall attitude of crew"

Cons: "The plane was old. Entertainment screen too small and no way to restart a show. No AC power sockets at chairs. I was sitting at back of the plane and at the time food came there was no choice - they ran out of food options. Also, the plane storage bins were too small to fit small bags."

Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."
Cons: "Closeness of seats and worn out touch screens on seat backs resulted in people behind us constantly kicking and pounding on our setbacks throughout the flight. Cleaning crew did not do a thorough job, leaving trash and used chewing gum on floor from previous flight."

Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."

Cons: "Small cramped plan. Seats did not recline."

Cons: "Flight was canceled and announced at midnight"

Pros: "The mango sorbet"

Pros: "Crew were gracious & helpful. Plane left and arrived on time. Frequent offers of beverages."
Cons: "There was no space for legs and feet. Rows are too close together in economy. Only my left foot could extend forward - a metal box was bolted to the floor where a right foot would go. Seatback pockets with magazines, headphones, etc take space that knees require. Then when my front neighbor fully reclined for 7 hours, I was really pinned in (middle seat of center section). It can't be healthy to be physically restricted for so long. Very uncomfortable. Ryanair seats packed this close (for much shorter flights) don't seem to have floor obstruction, and eliminate the pockets and recline features which helps."

Pros: "Good stuff Dave"

Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised by leg room in coach"
Cons: "More water needs to be offered more often"
