Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."

Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."

Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."

Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area.

Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."

Cons: "Super small plane."

Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."

Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."

Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"

Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."

Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."

Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."

Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."

Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."

Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."

Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"

Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."

Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"

Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."

Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"

Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Bad"

Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"

Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."

Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."

Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."

Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"

Pros: "Very poor service. The crew is not capable of attending the needs of passengers, specially those traveling with children. Comfort on board is terrible. An airplane of two seats on each side for over 7 hours and to many stops. The stop in CR was unnecessary. We had a very difficult flight with no entertainment and poor service."
Cons: "They need to take more serious their services for toddlers and children. Seats are not apt for children from 2 up to 8. Seatbelts do not fit a child. They don't have an emergency kit for children. No entertainment, no pillows, no blankets. We had to beg for water. It was simply unacceptable."

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

Pros: "Amazing Crew."

Pros: "Punctuality and service"
Cons: "Entertainment"

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: "Flight attendants wonderful. Very accommodating no language barrier"

Cons: "No entertainment system for Business Class Passengers"

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?"

Cons: "Entire row was skipped over for food service"

Pros: "Fast prompt boading"
Cons: "Tiny meal"

Pros: "I la la love travelling with Copa! I book with them whenever possible!"
Cons: "Nothing really. My back was tired from sitting 5 hours but I don't put the blame on Copa for that! 5 hours of sitting does that to a person."

Cons: "My flight was canelled."

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: "Food was ok, Some of the crew were friendly better then Mia Panama."
Cons: "The airport personnel did not help me with adding my miles to my Cops Cinbect card, they said it was no value and that Cops Connect membership want Copa, Worse they broke my expensive Nautica luggage by losing a wheel and my luggage was not even 22 kilos"

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

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."

Cons: "No matter if you have priority in your bags, in Buenos Aires is always the same, the bags come last."

Cons: "There is not so much as even a free soda on the flight. They charged me $50 for my carry on because it happened to be an instrument (a small carry on sized one). They insisted this was normal. Spoiler: it isn't. I have NEVER had to pay extra for a carry on based on its value. I was tired and had been traveling since 3am. I asked for a Coffee to wake up and was informed that they are NOT complimentary. I asked what snacks or beverages they had that were complimentary and they informed me there were NONE. Zero. What? I only had cash on me (my card had been lost in traveling days before) and I asked if they would either let me pay cash or be willing to just this once offer me a free coffee. They flatly told me no. It is worth noting that I was kind and courteous throughout learning this. I didn't take any frustration out on the flight attendants. But I was deeply disappointed. I'm am exhausted traveler on your airline in a bind without my card. Can you please just be kind and offer me a coffee on the house? Nope. Sigh."

Pros: "Staff was professional, efficient, and kind in moving my mother who cannot walk and was in a wheelchair. Thank you"

Cons: "Business class lounge in Panama was terrible. Over crowded, noisy, poor and inadequate food and drink, only tiny, underfilled, tasteless sandwiches and dry crackers. Inferior to any other lounge I have been in. On the plane, the food was dry and tasteless for the most part."

Pros: "Easy and fast connections. Flight on time.great"

Pros: "Everything perfect. On time, good service"

Pros: "Fortunately in the situation described, the staff was great. It felt like every Copa attendant in IAD was there."
Cons: "At the gate there was chaos because a smaller plane came in to take us to PTY (CM357) this morning. The plane was oversold and people were standing in the aisle. It felt like anarchy."

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: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"

Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"

Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and basically a free for all rather than by rows( back of the plane first)"

I have to travel from Milan to San Francisco and I missed flight of my one leg ( milan to frankfurt) of journeyand I went for help and non of the Lufthansa staff at Milan airport helped me. Although my connecting flight was after 12hr they just gave me some random number which to call. I have never experience this in my 8yr of international travel."

Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."

Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."

Pros: "Professionali customer service. Food and beverage service very good and generous. Love the European hospitality."

Pros: "The flight was really on time and the flight crew was just amazing. The overall experience was exceptional. Will recommend this servic to any one who will like to travel"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."

Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "I could not obtain in Frankfurt airport a boarding pass of my connection from Rio to Santiago"

Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"

Cons: "2 hours late"

Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"

Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."

Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."

Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."

Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."

Cons: "They didn't have time to give half the people drinks and we weren't even given water."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Entretenimento"

Cons: "More humane treatment. Honor diet request"

Pros: "Nothing as we could not take the flight."
Cons: "Allowing the option to change your ticket date, but failing all debit and credit cards payments offered, actually means that they are not allowing flight changes due to COVID related issues like they say they do. We had to book new tickets with another airline to get home."

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. The waiting area was filled with people milling around, trying to find their line."

Cons: "Everything!"

Pros: "The cleanliness of the aircraft and the staff professionalism"
Cons: "No"

Cons: "Little late boarding and leaving. No explanation"

Cons: "checkin process at cusco airport was very bad. there was a line 1hr long to checkin suticases and there was no one at the payment counter to accept payment for suitcases."

Pros: "Food."
Cons: "It took 1.5 hours to leave the tarmac in NYC. We just sat there with little communication."

Cons: "Don’t charge for seat selection. Every passenger deserves to choose their own comfort."

Pros: "Crew was great!"

Pros: "The early check in"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No leg room even for the seats we paid extra"

Pros: "the crew was realy great and everything was very good."

Cons: "Nothing. All excelent"

Cons: "Have the seats when I boughted the ticket. Couldn’t check in , there is no option for residents, only visa Viver"

Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "Meal for kids first"

Pros: "Crew quite nice"
Cons: "The baggage check In closed an hour an a half before boarding, which led us to bring the bags through security, which resulted in loss of $60 worth of items!!!! Unacceptable!"

Cons: "7:50 am flight, arrived EZE 5 am as instructed, boarded plane at 10:40 am, missed connecting flight and spent 14 hours in Lima, shuttled off to a hotel 1-1/2 away, for a 2am flight. Arrived next day in LA and missed shuttle. Both legs very poor service on and off airplane, added security for having to enter Peru complicated and delayed things further. LAN used to be the best to SA, LATAM is the worst, never again."

Cons: "DONT BUY YOUR TICKET WITH FLIGHT NETWORK !!!!! I HAD A PROBLEM AND LOST ALL MY MONEY !! ALL THE TICKETS (5 PERSONS) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"

Pros: "crew, punctuality, comfort"
Cons: "no lounge. $20 coupon toward meal at mediocre airport restaurant does not cut it. very laborious boarding process very long wait for 'priority' baggage entertainment system not functional"

Pros: "- Flight in bound to Peru + 7 hrs late. Family of 4 separated. - Flight in bound to Cusco Overbooked. Sent us on a different flight. - Return flight from Cusco Bumped (+4 hrs late), promised voucher and upgrade due to all the previous issues. - Return flight out bound from Lima. Would no recognized any of the promises nor the inconveniences of the other flights and the promises. (In Lima all was denied by the land people but they kept on sending us from one person to another for over 3 hours until the final minute when all passengers where on board they said they could not do anything). Family was separated once again."
Cons: "The crew did their best to overcome what the land supervisors did not do. Check with us during the flight."

Pros: "Muy amable la tripuñacion"
Cons: "El abordaje fue algo lento y desordenado."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly, professional, and attentive. The aircraft was first rate with leg room not found on other flights, excellent selection of entertainment, and pretty food service."
Cons: "Stopping in Lima"

Pros: "The individual who helped us rearrange flights in Lima was very helpful."
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled the morning of the flight. Caused issues with an added overnight stay and time to reschedule everything."

Pros: "It was dreamlined. So much leg room . Flight was one of the most comfortable one ina long time"

Pros: "There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother."

Pros: "We had 3 high-school classes that traveled with us and the crew managed them extremely well (especially Luis) and made that trip unforgettable and most entertaining."
Cons: "Breakfast food was really bad; dinner food was between mediocre and ok."

Pros: "Everything except for the middle seat"
Cons: "The middle seat"

Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time"

Cons: "vuelo terrible, los asientos totalmente incómodos, el pasaje no ha costado poco y suprimireron el snack, qué vuelo tan incómodo. ya no conectan la manga y la gente salio en todo el frío fue un choque muy brusco de corriente porque dentro del avión estaba muy caliente ya que creo que no funcionaba el aire acondionado y salir en todo el viento cualquiera se puede enfermar"

Pros: "Lack of maintanance the pilot had to turn around in the runway because the plain had no sufficent gas. Maintanance should be constant not reqctive of the situation"

Pros: "good flight. Good lounge in Santiago. Flight staff very good"
Cons: "Lounge food not as good as BA or Qantas. Only hot food was some sausage roll / vegetable rolls. Only sandwiches and filled rolls"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay, boarding through shutter, unsafe shutter parking,"

Pros: "El avión era un 787-9 en excelente estado y muy cómodo La tripulación muy amable"
Cons: "El snack era un croissant jamón-queso que venía casi congelado, malisimo"

Pros: "El cumplimiento"
Cons: "El costo de los productos en vuelo y que no tienen cambio."

Pros: "Technology Leg room"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Main leg of flight which was to take me to Lima from the United States in the first place, was cancelled. Refund should have occurred, yet still charged. Please issue refund."

Pros: "Maybe, we'll have to see..."
Cons: "KAYAK sent me this email as i sit in a hotel provided by the airline in Lima. I will submit a complaint with KAYAK, for I believe I deserve compensation, especially when this email is sent to me impersonally before a solution to the problem has even been carried out."

Pros: "Service is exceptional. Most polite staff ever in my flying experience and I'm 28 and have take over 50 flights in my life."
Cons: "-That we needed an app to watch the media. -Seats are smaller than some longer flights, but honestly they were fine. -Boarding takes a while, but I'm not sure there is a good solution. I did like how we loaded the front and back of the plane simultaneously. Good move!"

Pros: "Gave good snacks"
Cons: "Annnouncements weren't clear in English or Spanish only in Portuguese"

Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff . No delays , always on time . Pilot is handsome too"
Cons: "Magazines are in Spanish language mostly :("

Pros: "I was able to move my seat to a middle seat and got to watch."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Poor leg space Entertaiment Poor food"

Cons: "Missed next flight and was not compansated!!!'"

Cons: "This flight was entirely unnecessary. I paid for this flight and another from Lima to D.C. I was in Nazca, so could have easily boarded in Lima which was 3 hours away, but the airline forced me to make the 14 hour trip back to Cusco instead, just so I could fly BACK to Lima on their plane, otherwise they would have cancelled my whole reservation. I will never fly with LATAM again."

Cons: "My wife and I had a 3 hour, 15 minute delay because of a hydraulic issue. I understand that this needed to be repaired or checked out. However, it would have been helpful to have received periodic updates from the crew about what was happening. We went for over an hour without knowing what was going to happen while we sat on the plane."

Pros: "friendly flight attendants topped off wine glasses a few times in flight! meals were actually pretty tasty"
Cons: "seats are a bit tight on the 777 but what airline isn't these days"

Pros: "I booked my flight in November for a March flight. I booked 2 seats together --window and aisle. I checked my reservation the day before we went to the airport, we foound out that these seats had been given to someone else. How could they give away reserved seats??"
