Pros: "The food was good, staff in the plane was courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. At the time when we were supposed to depart, nobody from the airline was at the counter outside the designated gate. I asked couple of people from Avianca and they told me the flight was departing at the original time, which was not correct. The flight first was pushed to 1 am departure (3 hours delay) and then to 4 am departure (4 hours delay). After several people asked about the flight and an hour after the original departure time, the airline finally had staff at the counter indicating the new departure time and apologizing for the inconvenience. The airline offered a meal at the airport, but I didn't find this through their representatives, but through another passenger. The gate changed about 5 times, which I understand is not under the airline control, but part of this probably could have been prevented with better coordination. My first day in La Paz was horrible, as I couldn't even sleep waiting for my flight to depart. Thank you Avianca!"

I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "I liked the time of the flight, that's about all."
Cons: "Avianca is one of the most dreadful international airlines imaginable. I could fill a book with the problems I've experienced. I fly often on many different airlines. This one needs new management; someone who actually cares."
Pros: "Ticket said I had to check in at the airport during my layover while waiting for my second flight. When I tried to check in online, it said there was a problem with my ticket... but luckily staff in the airport managed my baggage transfer quickly and I was able to check in no problem.

Pros: "Todo muy bien organizado y confortable. Personal amable y atento."
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."

Cons: "There is not even a USB available..."

Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone! Pura Vida! Dave"

If you are sitting at the last two rows (out of four), they might run out of options for dinner and you are left without choices. I feel sorry for the crew that have to come to you and say "I only have left chicken ". Very cheap airline overall. I can't believe this is Star Alliance."
Cons: "The plane was delay"
Pros: "They serve a meal on most flights."
Cons: "When something goes wrong, like when our flight was oversold, the customer service is deplorable at best."

Cons: "Seats not comfortable, did not liked the food."
Pros: "I like to have my luggage back and not going back to the airport every day"

Pros: "The pilot was great st explaining the flint and not where we were."
Cons: "They forgot my gluten free meal and didn’t tell me until I was on the plane. Can we count on you to feed us? Apparently not. How can an airline forget a meal for a passenger? Especially in such a long flight?"
Pros: "The welcome abord"
Cons: "I remember once they asked who wanted stay and spend a night in Panamá, I accepted the offer in Panama, but when the flight that was in my regular schedule was about to leave, they told me that I needed to abord because it was no possible to stay and I made big movement with my luggage and they putted back my luggage in the plane. That was one of the bad moments I experienced with Copa once."
Pros: "I enjoyed the direct route from SFO through Panama to Mendoza. Panama airport is certainly one of the most expensive in Latin America which made the 9 hour layover expensive. Otherwise the flight was relatively comfortable and hassle free."
Cons: "The expensive 9 hour layover in Panama City was a bummer. Also the airport had all of its flights leaving at the same time which made it very crowded!"
Pros: "I have not flown on such a nice well organized airline like Copa! And they actually serve really good food."
Cons: "The service and food."
Pros: "I thought the entire cabin crew were friendly, polite and very helpful."
Cons: "If you are on a seat at the back, it takes too long to get off because the people in front especially first class, take their sweet time getting their luggage while the rest have to wait. Then my contacting flight only had 22 minutes to transboard."

Pros: "The crew members on my return trip to New York City were great!"
Cons: "On my trip to Panama City, the attendant told me I have to walk all the way to the back if I wanted to get alcoholic beverage. Why was I doing my job for him? Also my tv wasn’t working for half the flight."
Cons: "Worst airline of all time. Booked my flight several months ago. Attempted to check in the day prior to my flight but Copa's website was not working. Website was not working for 7 of the girls I was with either. Arrived to the airport over 2 hours early to ensure time for check in. Was told I no longer had a seat on the flight. Copa over booked the flight by 9 people. Was put on standby and luckily made it onto first leg of flight but they again took my seat away for the next leg of the trip. VERY upset. Will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "The quantity of the food was few"
Pros: "The crew was beyond polite, despite our tardy departure due to the Panama Airport being shut down earlier that day."

Pros: "Food was ok, Some of the crew were friendly better then Mia Panama."

Cons: "Luggage did not arrive :("
Pros: "Everything was good, just a little delay of about 25 minutes"
Cons: "Delay of about 25 minutes, was because we were waiting the catering to arrive"
Cons: "Copa charged me for luggage on the way back that didn't charge me on the way to. They told me it was a mistake, they should have charged me, but it was YOUR MISTAKE, not mine. I wouldn't have take it if I had to pay. Customer service was AWFUL. Stick to your mistakes, value your customers."

Pros: "The flight was easy and quick. These small planes are actually pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Waiting for a gate in Chicago is never fun. Most people on the plane seemed to have tight connections, and I'm guessing most of us missed them. I only made mine because the next flight was delayed."
Pros: "A long but uneventful flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. The flight was fine."
Cons: "All our chosen seats were disregarded the entire way from Munich back to Raleigh because the airline was switched to United. My family was separated on all flights, even though we chose seats over a month in advance."

Cons: "Service was a bit brusque at times, but never unkind."
Cons: "I made a reservation for my whole family and selected seats four month ahead (we reserved 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D). One day before the departure, United informed me that one of my kid had to be moved to 11B a part from the rest of family due to a flight swap. When we started boarding, I noted someone else was sitting on my seat (1D) with his own boarding pass with 1D written. United crew politely asked if the gentlemen was willing to move to 6B, which his original seating in the system but he refused to do so. We' also personally explained to him that if he can yield the seat so that our family could sit together due to my wife's medical condition but he would not cooperate. I noted Those gentlemen on 1D and 1C are either buddies or coworkers. The crews were looking at each other without offering a solution. I ended up telling the crew that I could sit on 6B so that the plane can leave. The departure time was 20 min late u related my seating issue and de-icing took another 40 min. I am a Global Service member and I am very unhappy about the way the whole situation was created and handled by United."

Pros: "The flight crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "The boarding time lasted an hour as the front desk staff at the gate insisted that I needed a visa travel document for my connection in China (multiple leg journey). What they failed to realize is that nobody needs a visa for China if they’re connecting in transit. It took a phone call and 3 staff members to sort things out. Not something that I want to deal with at 5:00 am. Moreover, due to the de icing, the flight was late and i just made it to my connecting flight in Newark. It was quite a hair-raising experience overall."

Pros: "Never on Air Canada again. Food was miserable. They literally told me that they ran out of food (on the flight from Montreal to Casablanca). No kidding. They told us that the flight was full and no more food was available! When we asked for water, they did not bring water. I am not sure if they were out of water because the flight was full! That would be something! Bathrooms were not usable. Utterly dirty. My six-year old daughter refused to use the bathrooms. Water was flowing and the smell was horrible. They should clean that. I can go on but what is the point???"
Cons: "The list would be too long. So, what did I like is a better question in this case. Honestly, I am not even sure if I liked anything. I mean some people were nice, but why?
