Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I loved that even during a pandemic, alcohol in glassware and full meals were served in business class (unlike other airlines, so I avoided them). The lighting looked nice, the crew was professional and attentive, and the bathroom was well maintained. The blanket and pillow were comfy as well. I like the 1-2-1 layout in business class, which leaves window seats with a lot of windows and privacy."
Cons: "The headphones were not the most comfortable, sometimes the passenger moving around behind you will shake your seat too, and before take-off the plane was quite hot. Also a lot of the food choices I wanted were gone already but not a big deal as there were many choices."
Cons: "During covid pandemic they put no efforts to show the aircraft clean or maintained the distance between passengers"
Cons: "I couldn't take the flight, because of the sanitary situation, and couldn't get my refund yet"
Pros: "Everything was excellent accept the entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly crew and delicious snacks. Comfortable chairs."
Cons: "Gate was change and no announcement was made. Could have miss might flight if I didn’t ask someone 30 minutes before boarding. Also could do a little better with the entertainment part. All the channels were in Portuguese. I understand it’s a Brazilian airline but you need to consider your foreign customers. Have some English Channels."
Cons: "Refreshments were minimal."
Pros: "Very clean airplane and excellent crew"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "crew was kind."
Cons: "We almost crashed into other planes on the runway while trying to land. The runway was full/ blocked. We had to accelerate suddenly and ascend back into the clouds. Very bumpy and scary. Pilotes should know runway status in advance of descent."
Pros: "Azul is always amazing in terms of service!"
Cons: "The price!"
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew. Comfortable seats, new plane."
Cons: "Definitely the food could be better. It was tasteless."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The boarding of the connection flight was a little messy. Also, the table on the seccond flight was a bit lower than the first, but enough that I couldn't pull it down if I didn't put my knees to each side."
Cons: "I was charged for luggage and I wasn’t given the option to purchase luggage while booking the flight"
Cons: "didnt reach connection"
Pros: "Everything was very good, mainly when compared to other airlines: the boarding, the condition of the plain, the comfort, entertainment and food."
Cons: "It is hard to say... But I had a problem with gate information on my first leg. This could have been better handled."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew members were friendly, snack food service was good, and the flight was smooth and on time. My baggage arrived promptly at Chapeco after the flight. No complaints!"
Pros: "Bus service from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 was clearly marked and frequent. The flight crew members were all helpful and friendly and I enjoyed the drink (especially suco de maracuja) and snack offerings. As I spoke only limited Portuguese, I greatly appreciated the attempts made by the ground staff and flight crew to communicate with me, both in English and via hand gestures. I am certain that no domestic airline would be so helpful to non-English speakers in the USA!"
Cons: "I realize Azul cannot help being stuck in Terminal 2, but it's not the most comfortable place to wait for a flight. Also, after I walked through the gate, several boarding flights merged confusingly in a single passageway with exits to multiple planes and many people got lost and ended up (temporarily!) on the wrong airplane, despite heroic attempts by the ground crew to direct passenger traffic. There must be a better method than having everyone follow colored lines to the planes - it wasn't working!"
Pros: "Uau!! Azul! Amazing!! Every single staff I met treated with so much professionalism!! Thank you! First time flying with Azul!! I had heard raving reviews fr9m my parents and now I know why!"
Pros: "Azule Airlines incorrectly charged me 60 Rais for my first bag of 23 kg. When I showed them documentation of my connecting flights, they reversed the charges."

Pros: "Flight on tine"
Pros: "Loved all the support and attention from the crew"
Pros: "The tickets were a good price, movie selection was excellent, and the staff was really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was terrible. I'm a tall American and I could barely fit in the seat, let alone fall asleep in a 9 hour hour flight. Also, there were no plugs that would work for an American outlet."
Pros: "I really love how friendly the crew was! The seats were also very comfortable for a plane. I couldn’t get over how there were cameras to look at outside of the plane for those who didn’t have window seats as it helped with some landing anxiety. The food was well prepped and decently enjoyable! The charging port was also amazing and I was very happy to see it when I had boarded the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding was a bit confusing as the crew members spoke a majority of Portuguese and translated only very few times. I had to ask a crew memeber when I would board."
Pros: "There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again."

Pros: "Friendly and professional staff"

Cons: "A tv would be nice"
Cons: "My flight was delayed due to maintenance and I had to pay again a connecting flight from fortladerdale."

They patrolled the aisles and routine pointed at passengers directing them in a hostile manner to keep their masks on their faces, even when they were trying to eat or drink. They also threatened customers by stating it was a federal law several times. It was very uncomfortable to say the least. I will not fly delta again by choice."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and engaging"
Cons: "I wiped down my seat area to clean it. It would be nice to know what Delta is doing as well."

Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"

Pros: "Seat comfortable"

Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"
Cons: "Service in business class left a little more to be desired. I had to ask for food and drinks, because I feel off to sleep in the first round. Came to Gate early, but had to wait for agent to put the jet bridge. Only one person was available."
Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty good, but not up to their usual high standards"
Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."
Cons: "Delta staff is not too friendly"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentative."
Cons: "The amount of delays causing us to miss our connection and be stuck in another city for a night before getting to our destination the next day(hopefully)."
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."
Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"
Pros: "I was able to pick my own flight online easily."
Cons: "Lack of same day, 1 connection, first class seats. Had to fly out the next day because only middle seats left. Frustrating because I paid for first class and had no good choices for my departure day of choice."
Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."
Pros: "Great plane"
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."
Pros: "I haven't traveled by air for a number of years, it had gotten to be so crazy at checkin. Well imagine my surprise when I was checked in within five minutes of arriving at the airport. KAYAK took care of everything. All the flights were on time, I received email updates along the way and I am so happy I'm planning my next trip already."
Cons: "Even the babies in the waiting area were quiet on the flight, which leaves nothing for me to complain about at all."
"healthier food option"
Pros: "The crew was very interested on help and attentive with the passengers. But the seat wasn't comfortable. The design of the cushion is not the best to be seating"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seat not super comfortable, worn out support. Entertainment very limited for five hour flight. One movie option playing on shared screens. A kid movie."
Cons: "More comfy seats and entertainment options. Crew, however, was excellent."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "A better movie and the check in was grueling. They did not have enough staff and one person spent 30 minutes helping someone repack at the check-in desk while we all waited. Pretty unacceptable."
Cons: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "on time, good seats and leg space"
Cons: "I wish Copa has more flights in US"

Pros: "It was an old plane, no WiFi!!! There is was an hour and half delay which no one made it clear as to why ."
Cons: "the manager at the counter at IAD insisted make the connection in Panama City! Of course after landing in Panama City I missed the connection. Had to stay at a hotel and I purchased business class ticket but they don’t have business class seats available on the next flight and book me on economy"
Pros: "Súper crew!"
Cons: "Only one movie for a flight of 4.5 hours. The food tasted like frozen TV dinners."

Cons: "everything, I'll never use them or recommend them to anyone, worst ever!!"
Pros: "I had to cancel the flight for family reasons, and even if I pay the cancellation fee, Copa didn’t give me the money back. I explain that it was a personal/family type of emergency, but they did not care at all."
Cons: "I had to cancel the flight for family reasons, and even if I pay the cancellation fee, Copa didn’t give me the money back. I explain that it was a personal/family type of emergency, but they did not care at all."
Pros: "Provided food- even on short trip from Panama City to Bogotá."
Cons: "The change in my original reservation with no warning and prior consultation !! Both companies acuese each other to make the change (COPA & the Agency...) at the end the only posibility was travel throught Rio an then to Recife...very bad, since you made me spend one night in the airport and not in Recife, as it was my original purchase !!"
Pros: "New fleet, personal entertainment, food and drinks, carry on and one suitcase all included. Connection in Panama is smooth. Better than American, Delta and United for sure."
Cons: "The check in process at Washington Dulles was painfully slow. It seems that every passenger had special needs and none were checked in quickly."
Pros: "The aircraft was a new 737-800 series with an entertainment center, the meal was decent and the crew pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Copa does not permit one to make a seat selection at the time of booking - the seats assigned to us upon checking werenot together and in the back of the plane. As Silver customer with United Airlines I would hope for a better choice or what then is the value of the Star Alliance? I likely won’t fly withCopa again. Also, they did not offer hot tea as a beverage selection."
Pros: "It was my first time using Copa, I travel often, I was surprise by the friendliness of the crew, the entertainment was great,"
Cons: "The food quality should be better"
Pros: "Boarding wa son time and smooth"
Cons: "The food was low quality and qith not taste, both flights were really bad. Alao entertainment was poor"
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."
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."
Pros: "technology and movie/entertainment selection. plus drinks were included"
Cons: "The food choices are limited foe vegans."
Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Everything was great good service"
Pros: "It was nice to be able to watch movies - but the selection of good movies was limited."
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."
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."
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: "roomy seats, excellent food, very pleasant flight attendants--i would fly Copa again in a heartbeat"
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."
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."
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: "A great overall experience. I liked that there was a huge selection of entertainment that played on the back of each seat. The lasagna was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seat was not as comfortable as other airlines I've used!"
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."
Cons: "If I had at least boarded the flight I could have given feedback. But I didn't get in! I spent 6 hours at the airport waiting for my flight, with check in done and missed the flight. And on my ticket I didn't have the gate number or the terminal, the goalkeeper said he would let me know when the flight was leaving, the hours passed and I didn't hear him calling me. until near the departure time I went to ask the employee and he said that the flight had left a long time ago and that the entrance was on the opposite side of where I was and they did not warn me ... now I'm here at the airport with no place to sleep, waiting for my other flight with a connection to Brasilia that leaves 6 am where I will wait for almost 12 hours to be able to get home. remembering that my flight from São Paulo to Cuiabá was 3 hours long and I will have to wait for almost 24 hours. A goalkeeper was super arrogant with me, gave me no support and even told me that if I was in the United States I would be waiting for 3 days at the airport sleeping on the floor, so it was ok."
Pros: "Good flight! On time! Sit too tight!"
Pros: "Did us a favor and made check in in the counter"
Cons: "Food was pretty basic....no entertainment whatsoever kids were desperate"
Pros: "Very efficiently run"
Cons: "The boarding process IX too disorganized. No announcements in eff flash. Only Portuguese. They had everybody standing in lines 90 min us period to plane leaving."
Cons: "I had payed for an seat Gol + Conforto and one of the benefits was that the hand baggage compartment supposed to be exclusive to the people that bought this seat, so when I was entrancing into the aircraft one of the people of the GOl crew said that I’ll have to drop my baggage because the flight was full. I told that I had bought the Gol + Confort that have exclusive compartment to the hand baggage and I had showed my receive of the seat but they sayd that this benefits do not exist and took my baggage of me to drop off. It was an absurd and the worse thigh was that when I arrived at my seat, the exclusive space for my baggage was there available for my baggage and I had to drop off because the employee of the Gol didn’t know about this benefit of Gol + Confort seat and didn’t check out if really wasn’t space to my baggage"
Pros: "Brand New air plane"
Pros: "O lanche não foi Mãe Terra e isso é muito bom."

Pros: "Crew and baggage people were very nice."
Cons: "Sao Paulo to Floripa flight, did not pay for baggage. Floriap to Sao Paulo, paid 60 Real. I bought ticket through Kayak. Am 100% sure that I picked 1 bag for baggage claim. I don't understand how GOL missed that!!! It did not say on Kayak receipt. Am very angry!! Want refund of 60 Real!!!!!"
Cons: "O check in em guarulhos é péssimo e mal organizado. Mais de 40 minutos na fila, mesmo na fila do passageiro frequente."
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."
Cons: "Check-in with Gol can be a nightmare. Long waits"
Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable"
Cons: "Checkin crew had very little knowledge of laws and almost avoided my nephew to board the plane even with proper documentation. Flight was delayed more than an hour. Poor communication to explain why"
Pros: "Airport attendant spoke English well and it was easy to understand instructions and updates. Courteous and patient."
Cons: "nothing crosses my mind now."
Cons: "The seats are close together so there's not as much legroom as other airlines I've flown in Brazil. There was no in flight entertainment. The snacks were mediocre at best. The gate was changed at the last minute so it was a little confusing."
Pros: "They do everything average."
Cons: "Gol isn't the best company. Just average."
Pros: "On all three flights the crews were excellent. Everything else was fine, it is difficult to praise a 12 hour flight, just bearable."

Cons: "Opções de alimentos a bordo."
Pros: "Nothing about the airline Avoid if you can"
Cons: "Their customers service We were runnjngblate due to traffic but arrived with an hour before takeoff and they refused us to enter We had no bags to check in just hand luggage and they refused us to check in as their automatic check in service did not recognise our booking Total rubbish airline"
Cons: "El vuelo despegó una hora tarde, nos hicieron cambiar de avión."
Cons: "Me dieron la última fila, los asientos no se reclinaban y al lado una mujer con niños que gritaron todo el viaje, los auxiliares de vuelo no hicieron nada."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "More efficient check in. Long wait at gate."
Pros: "The trip is very fast"
Cons: "I sleep in few time"
Pros: "poor food. extremely poor food."
Cons: "it would be expected to actual food(2 meals) on a 7 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight delayed A LOT."
Cons: "Viendo que no podrían acomodar tres adultos y dos bebés en una fila de tres asientos por falta de mascarillas de oxígeno, en lugar de reacomodar gente, nos hicieron descender del avión, no les importó mi bebé ni mi esposa que está embarazada, el peor episodio viajando, el supervisor fue descortés, poco profesional y de verdad tiró por los suelos la buena impresión que tenía de GOL"
Pros: "Their boarding is more orderly than many Brazilian airlines."
Cons: "check in was difficult. Their app is terrible - check in was not allowed.. The website is worse - it couldn't link my locator number to my account. And the gate check in had an absurdly small number of kiosks and no one to help the confused passengers. Boarding was done on time and they kept the door open for 20 minutes after take off time with no announced reason for the delay."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane. Very little air conditioning."
Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"
Cons: "Long lines of confused people trying to figure out which is the right one for them. Need more people giving orientation as people arrive to GRU airport."
Pros: "The airplanee accommodations are comfortable and the service was very good."
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Pros: "Airplane was new."
Cons: "Punctuality (40min delay), bad service."
Cons: "O tempo que demorou para sair do avião e pegar o ônibus para o local de resgate da bagagem"
Cons: "Delayed Flight"
Pros: "Checkin pelo aplicativo rápido e eficaz, com uso do passbook."
Cons: "Cobrança da Internet a bordo."
Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bien"
Cons: "la atencion del personal en tierra me parecio deficiente"
Cons: "Due to weather conditions, the flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Cons: "The flight was delayed hours for a maintenance issue, then it was delayed further because they had to take passenger baggage off the plane from those that got tired of waiting and took another flight."
Cons: "space on the seats, and between the seats"
Pros: "Delays without advice,desaster."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online because system was down and at the airport they had trouble printing my ticket because of a challenge between kayak (flight network) and Gol. Literally hours wasted."
Cons: "Old plane. One hour of delay. No one explain the reason"
Cons: "Gol decided to charge 35 Reals for each checked baggage. As a result most passengers do not check their bagagge and the crew has to do tetris during 20 minutes in order to accomodate all on-board items. This produces tension among passangers and the crew."
Cons: "Every step of the way from checking in to picking up the baggage was very frustrating... one of the worst flying experiences I have had."
Pros: "On time departure"
Pros: "No primeiro trecho que fiz (Salvador - Congonhas) a aeronave era nova e bastante confortável. O voo chegou ao destino em menos tempo do que previsto."
Cons: "Enquanto o embarque está ocorrendo o ar condicionado fica desligado na aeronave, o que provoca muito calor no ambiente. Lembrando que o processo de embarque normalmente demora um tempo razoável."
Pros: "Excellent crew members !"
Pros: "ok flight for a cheap airline"
"Flight was delayed"
"It was quick, plane was loaded and the service on board was ok"
"Those corn kernel snacks were too hard for my dentures"
Pros: "I didn’t like the crew on board .. everyone else was good, there was a flight attendant on my flight very rude, I asked if it was possible to get an additional snack, and she looked at me, she told me something that I didn’t understand , she placed an extra snack on my tray.. then she picked it up and took it away from me … that was extremely rude .. I am a 71 years old woman and I was never treated the way the attendant treated me"
Cons: "You need to provide a better customer service to your passengers, you need to train them and evaluate them to treat passengers with respect, if they have a job it is because we people use your airline not the other way around"
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working"
Pros: "Uneventful flight. Departed on time. Arrived ahead of schedule (good thing). Excellent crew from nose to tail."
Cons: "PA system at gate was awful. Instructions were inaudible."
Pros: "crew was great and moved me further up in the plane to make a tight connection"
Pros: "Everything about my trip was exceptional!"
Pros: "Very clean and plane was not crowded!"
Cons: "Food and beverage service, but we completely understand with COVID 19"
Pros: "Flight and plan where great."
Cons: "Stewardess was very rude and un please y with all customers. Didn’t feel like she wanted to be on the flight. Her attitude was the main problem."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "comfortable first class seat"
Cons: "There was no wifi. No entertainment, no ability to work."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, friendly, tentative, and welcoming."
Cons: "Screaming kid in the background, wouldn't stop the entire flight."
Pros: "Pilots and crew are still great- all negative comments have to do with corporate policy."
Cons: "Not able to social distance at all. We had to board a bus to get to the plane and we sat there for 20 minutes breathing in exhaust while we were packed in like sardines rather than the bus going back and fourth with smaller groups. The plane was tiny, so again- no way to distance at all. Seats at the front were left unoccupied rather than allowing others to move to them for social distancing."
Cons: "There were too many people on the flight. The middle seat was occupied."
Pros: "Kind crew."
Pros: "Flight diverted. Poor communication"
Cons: "Realistically explain options of what may happen due to weather issues"
Cons: "Everything AA did nothing right."
Pros: "Our attendant was simply the best I have ever had the pleasure of flying with."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Does basic economy not get beverage service? My husband who was in basic economy and two rows in front of me got a beverage. The crew skipped from my row, # 22 all the way to the back. There was no rough air that would’ve made them cut off or announcement made that service was being discontinued."
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"
Cons: "The lack of leg room was wild. I’m under six feet tall and my knee caps were in the spinal column of the man sitting in front of me."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport. They first delayed it 1 1/2 hours and then another 30 minutes every half hour. The airline/crew never even acknowledged the delay or apologized for it."
Pros: "One of our fellow passengers was willing to change seats so my wife and I could sit together."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of American's Basic Economy, where they nickel-and-dime for every little thing. Choosing seats while checking in online does not cost the airline any more than assigning them, so charging for the privilege of choosing your seat is simply a money grab."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Negative leg room. If the seat next to me had not been vacant, my legs would have lost circulation."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and expected to delay further and the attendants put me on another flight to get there before my connecting flight."
Cons: "My bags never made it and when I arrived, I was told that one of my bags was still at my departure airport and the other wasn’t scanned."
Pros: "Efforts to get us to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Got to Philly - no one there - rushed 2 concourses and plane still there with daughter on-board. They gave away our seats, told us we would not get on, would not get our baggage and would not get put up in a hotel. Because of the NBA draft - had to travel 60 miles to New Jersey for a hotel. Lost a day, lost 2 tours, endured additional hotel costs...and the attendant made it clear she was on overtime and we just needed to move on. American Airlines is too big and consolidation of airlines has not been good for the public."
Pros: "Pleasant service ; courteous team"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Cons: "Horribly bumpy the whole time, no drink service because it was so shaky"
Cons: "Going to aircraft by bus in the cold with long wait for bus departure"
Pros: "We were 40 minutes delayed but received good communication and had an uneventful flight otherwise."
Cons: "The only problem that I had with my flight is that my luggage did not arrive on the same flight. Possibly due to my connecting flight from DCA to JFK. Both American Airlines and British Airways reassured me that it would be at Gatwick Airport when I arrived. Unfortunately, it did not. It took approximately four days to get my luggage. This was definitely a lessons learned."
Pros: "The wait time for the connection was not too long. But on the way back to the US, I almost missed my flight from Miami to Washington-DC because I didint have enough time to go though imigration and also had to wait for my luggages. Thank you!"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "There was NO ROOM for my legs when the man in front of me reclined his seat. I could not work on my laptop because it was such a ridiculously tight fit. I am 5'9" tall, and i have never been so cramped on an airplane."
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Pros: "I think for the most part you have some of the best customer service but your snacks are awful compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
Cons: "They rebooked my flight to one with an overnight layover and informed me via email with no explanation. I rerebooked it myself to one which left the next morning and arrived sooner than their rebooking."
Pros: "Gate agent at DFW helped with a seat change so my wife and I could sit together--excellent seating in the exit row"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Cons: "My flight was changed to later time; however I didn't receive any notification. Flight was later and didn't get seat I requested on original flight."
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "I thought I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight. I booked on Alaska Airlines website. I picked seats. I missed the part in the email I received later saying I didn't have seats. I never received a check in notification email. It took forever to check in at the airport because the the kiosk took a while to pull up my reservation after asking for additional information. I got stuck with middle seats on 5 hour plus flights when I had actually checked to confirm I could still select a window seat before I booked and did indeed select window seats when I booked."
