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: "The crew were very outgoing and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are very small and almost impossible to sleep overnight."

Cons: "They cancelled our flight"

Cons: "Azul cancelled the flight to Salvador without giving us any reason why. The sky was blue without a cloud in sight. I had another flight to catch in Salvador to bring me back to Miami and because the Salvador flight was cancelled I missed all my other flights and neither Azul or Tam wanted to help me get to my final destination. Azul offered to get me on a flight to Salvador the next day, but that did nothing for me since all of my other flights were scheduled for the day before. Long story short, I had to purchase a brand new flight for $1016. I paid for something that was not my fault and all anyone could say to me was, "I am sorry, there is nothing we can do for you" Words cannot express the rage, irritation and frustration I felt on that day."

After missing our connection, the Avianca Special Services associate wasn’t rude and non-communicative, and preferred to text her friends instead of attending to us."

Pros: "flight attendants were attentive"

Pros: "Es impresionante lo que ha desmejorado Avianca en su clase ejecutiva. Un vuelo de más de 5 horas y la silla no reclina sino solo un poco y no hay donde apoyar los pies. La comida estuvo mala."
Cons: "Tienen que mejorar su servicio en ejecutiva y si les toca usar ese avión mejorar la comodidad de las sillas."

Pros: "Cada ves que viajo en Avianca , estoy viendo y sintiendo un detrimento en la atención así como en la comodidad de los aviones. Viaje de Washington a Bogotá en busines, y la incomodidad de el avión es desesperante. Q pasa AVIANCA? Acaso se va a acabar nuestra empresa colombiana q ha sido el org"

Pros: "Excelent service, flight attendants are very professional"

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: "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: "The food"

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.

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

Pros: "Excellent"

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"

Cons: "No complain"

Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."

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"

Pros: "Seating"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."

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"

Pros: "People"

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."

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."

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."

Cons: "Very good"

Cons: "Entertainment choices"

Pros: "on time, good seats and leg space"
Cons: "I wish Copa has more flights in US"

Cons: "I will never fly with Copa airline again"

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: "Good price compared to direct flight on United"
Cons: "The check in process..there seems to be no benefit in doing the early check in online because there is only one Copa attendant helping the premium and early check in customers while there are four Copa attendants helping the regular check in customers and that line moves twice as fast! Seems idiotic"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air flight attendant was rude and Had an attitude with some passengers"

Cons: "More options in movies"

Cons: "Thank you"

Pros: "The crew was wonderfully attentive. My only complaint is the narrow ley room."

Pros: "Crew was not aware of the drunken state of the 2 passengers sitting next to me . The 2 passengers got on the flight each with 2 beers . They finished it even before the flight took off . They then requested more drinks from the crew which they were given. I personally told one of the crew not to ser"

Pros: "Comfort and staff on board"
Cons: "Overall good"

Cons: "Amazing"

Pros: "nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat did not recline"

Cons: "No private enterteinment"

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: "The staff was very friendly. The airplane was clean. Boarding was organized and orderly"

Pros: "Excellent service"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled minutes within booking but still charged to our credit card for 10 days, meaning we never actually made it to rio and lost our deposit on our hostel."

Cons: "Nothing!"

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"

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

Pros: "The short stops"
Cons: "Delay en our flight"

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: "The movies were boring"

Pros: "Great Flight, from Dulles to Tocumen"
Cons: "14 hour layover from panama to SPS."

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: "everything was great :)"
Cons: "none,"

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: "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......."

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: "Attentive crew members."

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: "We flew 4 Aerolineas Argentinas flights on our 2 week trip to Argentina. 1 was cancelled and the other 3 were delayed. The ticketing agents really couldn't have cared less. They were incredibly unhelpful in trying to rebook our cancelled flight. We ended up having to buy all new tickets online. It was a mess for our 4/4 flights."

Cons: "The flight was delayed all day and then cancelled after hours of waiting. The airline did not give anyone information or make announcements for a long time both during the delays and after the subsequent cancellation, so we continued to wait at the airport without knowing anything. If they had clued us in to what was going on periodically it would have been helpful. They did finally get us to a hotel to spend the night after a long day in the terminal, but the service and rooms were also very poor there. The next day's flight was also delayed. Unreal. All in all a very disappointing experience. Would not fly them again but they have a monopoly on the particular flight we were on so wouldn't have a choice if we were to repeat again."

Pros: "Crew members, service everything was great"
Cons: "There were so many families and babies and children, they should have a seccion for kids also so they can play, and other for people that travel alone. Its a long flight and crying babies and children running and kicking cost me the next two days takig naps every 5 minutes. I never had this problem before i usually sleep all the flight."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Our first flight of the day on Aerolineas, from Salta to Buenos Aires was delayed an hour. We were supposed to have two hours in AEP (Buenos Aires), to connect with our international flight to Rio de Janeiro, but ended up with only 1 hour from landing to takeoff. Because the tickets were booked separately we had to collect our bags and recheck them. But the baggage claim area was packed with people and there were two flights before ours lined up for the belt. We knew it would be at least half an hour just to get the bags... it was too tight. So I went to the Aerolineas desk and a nice woman checked the status and referred me to the Customer Service desk. The man there made some calls and assured me that they would pull our bags and put them on our flight to Rio. He told us to go directly to the gate. We did, and needed every minute to go through customs and arrived just in time for boarding. Amazingly, our bags were there when we arrived in Rio, and we were very happy that we made it with our things!"
