Cons: "Podrían mejorar el sabor de la comida que sirven, ya que no es de las mejores."

Pros: "It was hard to not laugh at the gate confusion, time confusion, and clear general incompetence of the thousands of airport staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold. I had to complain strongly and asked to see the manager. Finally I was able to fly, but after much arguing and stress. Poor experience."
Pros: "fine"
Cons: "no issues. all fine."
Pros: "We left early and landed early. Nice staff and attentive. Snacks. (better get rid of the terrible so called barittos-they were awful. Cookies not bad and the snack. Stick to the sandwich and be sure to have extra mustard and mayo and option. They both are terribly dry. Very far from JetBlue-but nice airline and service."

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"

Pros: "El espacio en los asientos"
Cons: "La comida no estuvo muy buena"

Pros: "Crew was nice and individual tv screens were great! Free wine."
Cons: "God tasted like cardboard."
Pros: "Personal TV's on flight from NYC to San Salvador"
Cons: "Boarding in San Salvador was confusing because there were two flights boarding at the same gate at the same time. The screen for our flight did not indicate that the flight was boarding, so we thought only the other flight was boarding. We asked three different Avianca employees where and when our flight was boarding. All three gave different answers, none of which were correct. Luckily, we were able to figure out on our own where to go in time to catch the flight."

All went well thank you

Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The Punctuality"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Not"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."
Cons: "Same thing from previous flight. The crew is not capable to attend passengers traveling with toddlers or kids. We had an emergency on board with a 3yo and the plane had no emergency kit for children. The seats for toddlers and children are not adequate for their height or weight. Seatbelts don't fit a child. They travel in such uncomfortable seats and conditions. The aircraft was a 190, too small to make passengers feel comfortable, and this is how Copa always manages their flights to all cities in Central America. Very poor service and old aircrafts. People are paying for a quality service not to be treated like cattle. You need to improve your services."
Pros: "On time and good flight"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Maybe less cold the temperature."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process. Hassle free flight."
Cons: "The chicken wrap was terrible!"
Cons: "Staff was rude, bad customer service"

Cons: "Check in process of copa was terrible. Check in clerk and manager wouldn’t let me take my stroller and check it at the gate. Had to leave it outside of the airport. Traveling with 2 small children."
Pros: "On time, service, the black woman who was part of the crew"
Pros: "Wonderful service, and also gave me a upgrade"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Cons: "No earphones for hearing the movies"
Pros: "Que el avion era de 2 filas conn2 lugares"
Cons: "La comodidad.. Son muy estrechos..."
Pros: "Crew was great and boarding easy"
Cons: "Copa Airlines has the worse entertainment system. I flew business and the food was pathetic. 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."
Pros: "Boarding process and crew service were ok"
Cons: "Comfort and entertainment could be better"
Pros: "An online departure, good service, and ontime arrival"
Pros: "Flight made it on time, exactly as scheduled, despite a delay during boarding of almost 1/2 an hour. But other than that, good flight."

Pros: "Nothing really"

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."
Pros: "Lo mejor fue la atencion de la azafata colombiana el avion era peque aunque prefiero q sea de 2 butacas de cada lado ... Lo mejor fue el precio Kayal gracias."
Cons: "No es un servicio sobresaliente"
Pros: "Friendly fast helpful"
Cons: "Seats to close to the bathroom smelly couldn't get rest"
Pros: "We had the exit seats so there was leg room! The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "There wasn't any entertainment and the seating area for where we we're boarding was so packed we had to sit on the floor"
Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Pros: "Excelente servicio, a tiempo. Ayuda para un abordaje rapido, ya que habia mucha gente."
Cons: "Una de mis maletas fue abierto y me parece peligroso, ya que por dicha traía candado en la parte grande. Esto puede tacharlos de compañía no segura."
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean and comfortable seats and good food!"
Cons: "Two out of our three flights had no onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."
Pros: "The welcoming and attentive service"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Cons: "Food service was good. Staff were nice."
Pros: "Free meal on a one hour flight!"
Cons: "Premium seating not a good buy."
Pros: "Bueno"
Pros: "Todo estuvo realmente bien con una excepción."
Cons: "Cuando abordé el avión me di cuenta de que el espacio sobre uno no es necesariamente el espacio designado para su maleta de mano, ya que uní puede guardar su maleta en el espacio sobre otra persona; sujeto a la voluntad del pasajero o la disponibilidad del espacio en el compartimiento. Creo que cada pasajero debería llevar su equipaje de mano justo sobre su asiento para evitar desorden, mal entendidos o que se pierda equipaje de mano entre la confusión."
Pros: "technology and movie/entertainment selection. plus drinks were included"
Pros: "Crew and newer aircraft"
Cons: "Food could have been better in business."
Cons: "This airline Lost my baggage and they didn’t help me"
Pros: "I arrived in one piece."
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket from Costa Rica to Panama in order to comply with laws stating non-resident aliens must leave Costa Rica every 90 days for a period of at least three days. When it came time to return to Costa Rica, I understood that I had not purchased ANOTHER ticket to "prove" my intent to leave Costa Rica again three months in the future. I told the ticket agent I wishes to purchase a "fully refundable" ticket for a future flight, but she was (or professed to be) unable to assure me the ticket she was selling me was refundable. Upon return to Costa Rica, as before, immigration did not ask to see any such proof nor did they even ask my intentions. Isn't this called fraud? I did not need the ticket and, of course, in contacting Copa Airlines, I would have to return to Panama in order to even get a partial refund, which they won't guarantee. Not doing this again."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Pros: "Ha mejorado la comida que dan en económica, en especial par un vuelo tan corto. Las tripulaciones colombianas son más amigables y orientadas al servicio que las panameñas. Panameños: Wake Up!!"
Cons: "Ya es hora que inviertan en esto. Tanto en ejecutiva como en económica."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."
Pros: "I was treated SO well as my flight was bumped back a day. I was given a stay at a wonderful hotel with all meals and transportstion as well. It was exquisite! Not to mention $350 reimbursement & wonderful interactions every step of the way."
Cons: "I didn't like delaying my schedule 1 day, but the positives outweighed the negatives without question."
Pros: "nice staff."
Cons: "delayed leaving and arriving. no entertainment."
Cons: "Never answered the numbers I called when I got to the airport ended up having to rent with another company"
Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Montreal airport was awful"
Cons: "I was delayed a few houts.they could let me fly earlier."
Pros: "not much, not even close to the service and comfort I am used to flying."
Cons: "Keep planes in working order"
Cons: "After landing, we were waiting on the tarmac for sometime and I needed to use the restroom I was an allowed to do so. It would’ve taken me a short short time. I went to The rear of the plane to use the restroom and was told to get in my seat."
Pros: "Everything On time Didn’t missed our connection Good"
Cons: "I don’t know"
Pros: "The food"

Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "We were late getting to YUL because of traffic, and a West Jet employee went above and beyond to make sure we made it on our flight even though we missed the cut-off time."

Cons: "They tried for force us to pay for a different ticket because we had gotten a cheap initial ticket!"
Pros: "Affordable, great service, and easy"
Cons: "The internet and TV service were both broken on the flight. I missed out on much of the work I had to do. I was very disappointed that we were only told just minutes before boarding. I was not prepared to spend 5 hours on a flight with a screaming baby, unable to work or watch tv."
Pros: "The service of the crew was fantastic."
Cons: "No food included just water and Coke."
Pros: "Very smooth flight!"
Cons: "None. All is great!"

Cons: "Staff was rude and lazy."
Pros: "The flight comes into Vancouver at a very good time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice. Especially « Big John », he was very funny."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed 45 minutes without reason, we asked to have our flights switched as we were nervous of missing our connecting flight and were told we could not switch. While we were waiting on the runway for over an hour I asked our flight attendant to check on the status of our connecting flight and she basically told us to hope for the best and that we would have to deal with it when we arrived in Toronto"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled then rescheduled on a flight that was over an hour delayed. We almost lost our connection to Hong Kong as a result. Made for a very stressful journey with 77 year old parent and 8 years old child long waiting/ tiring time and running to gate our flight."
Pros: "Fantastic flight!"
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."
Pros: "The staff are always super friendly on Westjet."
Cons: "The entertainment system is terrible. It does not work on my laptop and they sell out of ipads quickly."
Pros: "No stops in US."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Everything else. Flight was delayed by over an hour, seats are slippery and SO uncomfortable. No food, no entertainment (flight was only an hour)."
Cons: "Snack was very minimal with no selection or option to purchase more."
Pros: "I liked that the inside of the plane was new, bright, and modern. Really great craft."
Cons: "It was a propeller plane and it doesn’t say that when you book. And they only gave water and pretzels. Nothing else. No soda, no coffee, etc. I was interested in purchasing a snack on board and the stewardess said they don’t sell on the flight because it was so short (40 min flight time.) lgehixh I could understand, but AirCanda offered a variety of snacks and drinks during the same 40 minute flight, so not sure what’s going on."
Pros: "It was a comfortable experience, the flight crew were attentive and friendly."

Pros: "Quick boarding and quick to disembark."
Cons: "tiny! you get what you pay for with a turbo prop."
Cons: "You should hire agents who don't lie to passengers. That's not a good reputation 4 the company. Have an office for the baggages where passengers can address their issues."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Pros: "- Flight was on time - Friendly crew"
Cons: "- My flight was from Montreal to Seattle with a connection in Calgary but the agent at the check in in Montreal was unable to confirm whether my luggage would be transferred directly to Seattle or if I had to collect it in Calgary and check in again. The crew should know or be able to verify the information in their database or somewhere at the departure not only when I arrive in Calgary! It adds a stress to the customer not knowing. - Flight of 4.30 hours and no free meals. - Impossible to use my hear phones in the plane so I couldn't hear the TV channels. I was also expecting movies and series like in Delta."
Pros: "The airplane being pretty small, boarding and getting off was fast. No issues or delays either."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Free wine and beer."
Cons: "Our flight for Toronto on Sept. 5 , # WS589 was delayed of about 1 and half hour; so, me and about 20 other passengers missed our connection in Toronto. The crew said that Pearson airport was on a shut down due to severe thunderstorms. But the weather was nice and sunny when we arrived Toronto; in fact my connecting flight ( Hainan airlines HU 7995 had left 20 min. earlier- on time- for Bejing. The crew in Westjet plane told me that all airlines were delayed in Toronto airport due to bad weather , and so that I would not miss my connecting flight."

We bought a flight Montreal-Mexico-Panama City, but for some reasons, it was impossible to get boarding passes for the second part of this flight... We had to check-in again in Mexico city."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "A more organized boarding process"
Pros: "Crew was good, food was good."

Cons: "Over booked"
Pros: "The lunch was good, the team was nice and the flight went well!"

Pros: "the crew was very gentle."
Cons: "I could not get my chair in a more confortable position to sleep, it did not work. Because of that my 6 hour and a half trip was very long and unconfortable and i ended up with pain in my lower back."
Cons: "In the counter people were rude (as always) and the first guy that helped us didnt found us. A lot of time wasting and not much staff to check-in."

Pros: "The in flight meal was just what we needed and they got us to San Jose safe and sound. No complaints!"
Pros: "Ontime and pleasant"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Changing flights is becoming Aeromexico’s normal practice, but if you want to change (even if you paid full price in Fiart Class) they’ll charge you for it. They should review their policies."
Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "The delay when departing, and the attention of the flight attendants. Also very limited kind of beverages."
Pros: "La comodidad la amabilidad de las personas."
Cons: "La comida"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"
Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."
Pros: "The comfort level on Aeromexico's planes to Mexico City and beyond is beyond belief, in this age of shrinking passenger space. In an ordinary ("back of the bus") seat in coach there was more than ample legroom for a more-than-six-footer, and row 28 has two windows to look out at the scenery aft of the wings. And food was even provided at no extra charge! In this situation there certainly was no need to purchase at an additional cost whatever Aeromexico calls its "premium economy" seating."
Cons: "The entertainment system is limited --- there are no games on the seat-back installed machinery. In addition, the earphones provided are only ear-buds, which don't work well in my ears. (I prefer the miniature headphones other airlines provide.) The volume controls were also poorly scaled. The lowest three levels of volume weren't enough to even hear a single sound, the next level up was a little soft or quiet and the highest level far to loud to preserve a listener's hearing."
Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "late boarding"
Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"
Cons: "Gate was changed before bording, gates closed before plane departure time regardless of not all passengers present. Missed the flight and Aeromexico made us pay to grab another flight while it was Aeromexico personel that refused to allow us in even though it was not yet departure time and said plane doors were closed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, both at the airport and in the air. It was nice to have meals served, even on the very short flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport to find that they had overbooked the plane and our family's 4 seats were in jeopardy. We had to wait until they had processed everyone else in line, even though we had gotten there first, because either they were in the "sky priority" line or because maybe they had pre-bought their seat assignments. After a tense 20 minutes of waiting, they closed the flight and let us have our seats. Then, at the gate, they confiscated two of our most important carry on bags and checked them because they said that children are not allowed a carry on item -- despite paying full freight for their seats! It was very nerve-wracking at our arrival destinations as these two items were not padlocked and were the very last to come on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "Good flight, excelent schedule"
Cons: "Flight Over sold (20 people)."
Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."
Pros: "It's an average flight with so much area of opportunities."
Cons: "The traffic waiting to take off."
Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."
Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"
Cons: "Waited from scheduled boarding to when the flight was cancelled- 3 hours and then little help from Aero Mexico to rebook to final destination in a reasonable time. Was promised a full refund of cancelled booking with Aero Mexico and as of 4/17- 0"
Pros: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "We didn't know the gate number until after boarding time. We boarded very late. Couldn't get comfortable in the seats"
Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"
Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."
Pros: "Great selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a bad mood that night. One of the flight attendants hit my elbow as he was speeding through the aisle, causing me to knock over my drink. He didn't apologize or try to help. The other one"
Pros: "the inflight movie."
Cons: "The flight was suppose to take off from Mexico City at 945 PM however nobody gave an explanation nobody knew the time or even the GATE I got to the airport at 6 PM, the flight took off at 1210 AM not only that I get on the plane and the AEROMEXICO crew had a really messed up attitude like they didnt care, I wanted to buy a gift for my wife from the magazine they had and the lady with a attitude simply said we dont have it, and I could keep going but It was a really bad experience for me."
Pros: "the crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was a little delayed movies or series might be interesting to have as an option to watch"
Pros: "Exc"

Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Extremely late

Pros: "Non stop flight. Excellent departure time."
Cons: "Understanding the COVID situation but they can give more than a bottle of water (3oz) and a bag of pretzels 🥨 (50 grams) and yet they charge full fare prices and worse extra for any bags!!!!"
Cons: "The plane was ancient. Cabin was freezing, seats were rocks. Using an old short-haul CRJ for a 3.5 hour flight sucked."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Cons: "Our extra legroom premium seats didn’t feel like we had much more room. No TVs, WiFi that didn’t work...left a lot to be desired. I know the standards are pretty low in the US compared to other countries, but for a plane that seemed relatively new, the lack of standard technology seemed cheap."
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Pros: "Seat upgrade."
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable"
Cons: "Need more room"
Pros: "We’re able to get a different flight after ours was re-scheduled several times."
Cons: "Re-scheduling was later then earlier then later, hard to plan’ Comfort: airlines should have a bill of rights for passengers."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."
Pros: "Flight Attendants professionalism"
Cons: "Due to AA delaying my flight I missed my connection; I'm a AA frequent flyer and I could say that have missed my connections about 50% of the time during my trips with the company during the last year. We were stuck next to the jet bridge for about 20 minutes because there was no one to operate it; as a result, I arrived late to get on my next flight. They close the flight even though there were about six passengers having connection delays because of American, the company refused to let us in the airplane even though the flight was in the ramp for about one more hour for unknown reasons."
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move."
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Every aspect of the trip went very smoothly. Great crew. Very comfortable. The 787 Dreamliner is a great airplane. Row 19 is the way to go in coach!"
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."
Cons: "I didn’t make this flight."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "This is a modern airplane with great features"
Cons: "The seats are way to narrow"
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"
