Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Seat leg room is for elves."
Pros: "The crew on the plane and on the ground were all very patient and helpful."
Cons: "Narrow seats and the seat pockets are really tiny."
Pros: "Had great interactions with crew and customer service rep, who added my TSA Prechek number over the phone because I couldn't do it when booking through Kayak. Great price for a nonstop cross country flight. Arrived on time with no drama, except for the seat neighbor who couldn't keep her feet out of my area."
Cons: "Would've welcomed a snack, but hey...can't be choosy."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seating, good wi-if/entertainment"
Cons: "Did not take off on time, food cost extra"
Pros: "I like the fact that we can download the app and watch movies for free."
Cons: "The food is not included. Even a snack."
Pros: "I had a great flight! The personnel were all kind and helpful. The flight left on time and arrived early and luggage was readily available on arrival. Very good experience!"
Cons: "I understand the possibility of flight delay. I also believe that a proper notice should be deliver to customers as early as possible. My flight was scheduled at 6:50pm, and thus I arrived at the airport around 5:30pm and went through security check. I found that my flight is now scheduled to depart at 10:40pm. There was no explanation, and I did not recieve any notice. It can be easily sent via email or text message. Now, I have to wait for 4 HOURS at the airport. I was a quite disappointed by this unacceptable service."
Cons: "Policy of not allowing check in within 40 minutes of flying flight. This policy maybe Makes sense in LAX Or chicago but not in tiny airports like fresno. I had already checked in online but becAuse of a glitch couldnt access it. I went to customer service desk and Asked for a hard copy boarding pass but Alaska Would not help me , it was Too late. So I waited for 38 minutes, watching an empty TSA line and then listened as my flight pre-boarded, , boarded and took Off without me. Then I had to buy an American airlines Ticket to reach san diego via LAX 5 hours Later. Alaska was a big let down this time."
Pros: "On how organized boarding and leaving the plane."

The pilot kept us up today on info, the flight crew brought water & anything else people needed before take off. It was a short delay but you would have thought we were going to be there for hours because they were all so attentive. It was the smoothest flight (THERE WAS CRAZY WEATHER EVERYWHERE!!) but our pilots made sure we had the smoothest safest flight possible. I could go on forever! This airline went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure we were comfortable and had a great flight."
Cons: "I don't love paying to check luggage but these days unless you fly Southwest that's hard to avoid."

Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."

Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"

Cons: "Demora para subir al avión"
Pros: "The boarding process was very efficient and the staff was both very sympathetic as well as helping. I had great flights with you, thanks!"
Cons: "The food has few to none vegetarian/vegan options. These days more and more people are trying to eat in a less cruel and healthier way. It would be great if you could keep up with that trend =) Otherwise it would really make me (and a lot of other people) happy if the disposable items such as cutlery and packaging were optional, so to reduce the plastic waste. All in all you offer a great service =)"
Pros: "The flight was not full so boarding was fast and easy. Getting off didn't take forever. Crew was friendly and helpful."

I had to throw out everything from my backpack and place the bottles in it. Copa crew managed to break my bottles."

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat"

Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "We were assigned the last row and were separated again."
Pros: "Love the crew."
Cons: "Apparently there’s no way of actually securing a seat because they don’t have some, sort of system for it? At least that’s what I was told. I got on last and my seat had been taken. BUT the crew were very helpful and reseated me with an aisle seat like I’d wanted. So really, not a complaint but a thanks for making sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Cons: "Entertainment options were not that great. The cabin service takes really long."
Pros: "The direct people who interact is excellent everyone very courteous and friendly"
Cons: "An item stolen from my luggage"
Pros: "The flights were on time even for a late in the day flight. The organization was good and everything went well The sandwich served on the quick 1 hour long flight was an unexpected nicety that would not have happened on a discounted airline. The bags arrived with me at my destination. Like a well practiced production, I did not see the behind the scene work but in the end everything worked together to make a very nice experience."
Cons: "They weren't able to get my traveling companion and I seats next to each other."
Cons: "They weren't able to get my traveling companion and I seats next to each other."

Pros: "The crew was super nice"
Cons: "Again, international flight, cold, no blankets offered. No wifi or charging stations."
Cons: "We were sitting for at least three hours before drinks were served, and not because there was any turbulence. It just took them forever to load up the cart. Also, the air conditioning wasn't working very well. We were roasting for nearly seven hours."
Pros: "- friendly service - complimentary headphones - wine/beer/liquor in economy seat - decent meals served with a smile - airline that doesn't nickel and dime you - attractive male flight attendants - EXCELLENT English"
Cons: "- Panama City's staff. Wasn't sure if it's everything related to that airport, but that crew was horrible. Not friendly and highly disorganized, they left a very sour taste in my mouth after my amazing experience with COPA thus far. They felt like a completely different airline!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Your call center, and your offices are so seriously deficient. I as assured by agent that I was assigned seats 5. They lie to your face. The problems are then at the airport."

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: "Good food"
Cons: "No toilet paper or tissues in bathroom"
Cons: "You leave the plane hungry after 9 hours if you don't bring your own food. Overall food was scarce, dry and bland. My vegetarian food request was not taken into account."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortable... no personal TV... very tough if you travel with children"

Pros: "The options for meals. The availability of drinks."
Cons: "The heater was on for a long period of time. Many people can't handle/breathe in heat. Being on a plane with so much heat circulating without being able to turn on the air may cause panic attacks. One can always bundle up to get warm, if it's too cold."
Pros: "The flight was on time and enjoyable."
Cons: "I was in business class. You basically had to beg for alcohol. I just wanted a glass of wine, and I had to wait over 1.5 hrs to receive it. This was annoying as this was a red-eye 7 hours flight . I wanted a glass of wine, and then to sleep. Very poor service for business class. Also, flying a 737 8 hours is not ideal. The need to upgrade their fleet."
Pros: "everything was great."
Cons: "the AC on the Guatemalan Airport"
Pros: "The crew is attentive and they all have an excellent disposition"
Cons: "Check-in is slow because there are not enough agents attending this process. So when one person has a complication, the line is held up a bit too much. Boarding is not as organized as it should be. On-board entertainment system is not very good at all."

Cons: "The infotainment system was from the 90s"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Poor service before boarding."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Delays are common yes, but the “system” to re-route or re book was a horrid FAIL. I’ve never encountered such inefficient system for something so common as a flight delay. Made a call to Expedia to make changes to hotel reservations and never got the call back for confirmation of requested changes."
Pros: "Short flight, great staff. No food or entertainment, so no rating"

Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding was a good experience"
Cons: "The fact that the plane was supposed to land at 3.35pm and we actually landed at 4:40 and for some reason we waited to get off the plane with no apology from anyone. The service was not satisfactory and they broke our stroller."
Pros: "Fun, friendly crew on a boring routine short haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down."
Pros: "Everything from boarding early to funny safety announcement was awesome."
Cons: "I think they should remove the ability to have people lean back in their seats on the shorter flights. It’s clostraphobic when some feel they have to have a ‘lay back nap’ for such a short flight. It is like you have zero breathing room and feels like they are encroaching on my breathing space. People, the seats are already too close together must you lay back?"
Cons: "Boarding attendant demanded to see my passport for a domestic flight even though I had produced the government-issued photo ID required."
Cons: "So there was a problem with the aircraft. Some cargo nett8ng was broken so they had to move the baggage from the rear to the front hold. The pilot can on to inform us of what was happening, assuring us that our baggage would arrive with the flight. B7t not surprisingly they lied and about 30 ppl didn't get their luggage. It never made it on the flight and won't be until the following morning. So I have no clothes. No jacket for sub zero temperatures. It would great if they could at least tell us that there will be a problem. Not lie I'm not impressed. I'll do my best not to fly westjet again."
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Loading was an absolute disaster, never seen it so slow before"

Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"
Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "We found the chart listing gate where we should go. We went there. Told the last listed flight was late so stayed there. With no announcement the gate board listed a different flight. We asked and was told gate was changed. What a surprise, Went to the info board and had to RUN to our new gate. Barely made it on time. This is awful communication."
Pros: "Leaving that airplane 8 hours after expected."
Cons: "The fact that I was delayed twice, given false information, had to wait to board because a flight attendant was late for her shift and then had to run from terminal to terminal to find my flight on my own because no representative could help me or show up."
Cons: "Delay in boarding was over an hour"
Cons: "Unbelievably poor customer support. They accidentally canceled my flight and when I tried to retrieve my seat back, the lady was taking it as somebody else problem... If the AA was the one made an error of canceling my seat, I wished they would show at least an attitude of taking responsibility to fix the problem."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Numerous delays."
Pros: "Staff was awesome!"
Cons: "As was getting in line for security, overheard it was at least a one-half hour wait. The wait was actually pretty close to 1/2 hr."
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"
Pros: "My daughter liked the movie Gifted on the flight. Only decent experience in 2 days of travel"
Cons: "Worst experience with an airline ever. Never going to fly AA again. They lost 3 valued customers."
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options, friendly crew, flight was on time"
Cons: "My seat was not clean"
Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"
Cons: "bought ticket online for an Alaska Airlines flight 3 weeks prior to flight online, picked seat, too. When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."
Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"
Cons: "The very least employees should offer customer some waters to cool of"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Smooth flight. Early."
Cons: "In Charlotte the kiosks were not acting right. The agents were still exceptional but you could tell they were frustrated"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Pros: "Ok boarding, ok service, ok flight"
Cons: "We were delayed for about 1hr without any explanation or apology. Thank goodness i didn't have a connecting flight."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Well organised"
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Pros: "Roomy aisle seat"
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Aircraft is small, boarding is a mad dash to the plane"
Pros: "Plane full, like traveling in a cattle car, jammed in, My minimal contact with flight crew was fine, flying these days on any airline in coach is the same, American neither the worst or the best, in flight movie was the trolls, horrible movie"
Cons: "Flight was delayed arriving, connecting flight was in a completely different terminal = they didn't wait for us and auto booked us on a flight out the next morning. We requested our bags and drove home instead. Horrible."
Cons: "We missed our connection because of American Airlines incompetence. That being said the flight itself was ok."
Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."
Pros: "Boarding was swift. Gate staff was friendly."
Cons: "Phone charging stations at gate were down at every gate in the terminal. We waited nearly 45 minutes on the plane at the gate for a "flight attendant that is going to hitch a ride to make a flight from San Diego to Charlotte." This was obnoxious! We waited for almost as long as the flight was scheduled to take. Poor form."
Cons: "just like above + I had previously requested a vegan meal that had been confirmed and I was presented a "dish" of pasta loaded with cheese and was told that that was vegan ... 9 hours flight with no food The sound outlet on my seat was broken and, again, no entertainment for the entire flight"
Cons: "Missed Connection."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "The attention from the staff during the flight,was excellent."
Cons: "I'd didn't like that we'd had to pay 50 dollars for a medium size luggage,when other passengers have,slightly smaller suitcase,a carry on a lap top or big purse."
Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "No power at JFK. Customs and baggage claim a nightmare. After a tiring international flight, 4 hours in airport find out my flight is canceled. Miss a day of work because can't get flight until following day. No airline offer of food or hotel accommodation."
Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."
Pros: "The crew at least made an attempt to be friendly"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable the flight was delayed, and most importantly I booked my flight for san Francisco (sfo) and got sent to san Diego and had to book a $130 bus ticket and spend 14 hours on a bus."
