Cons: "3 cancel flights"

Cons: "At the time of boarding the crew members started going by group. This only lasted 1 min. Everybody started getting in a line without regarding group or any type of particular order. The crew members did mind and just kept boarding people. Very poor management and lack of authority."

Pros: "The most was the attention of the flight attendant and how fast and save we landed. Good vibes"

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.

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"

Doodles with a pen on the tray table, sticky arm rest, and it looked like the other seats around us were almost in the same shape. I would've rather waited an extra 15 minutes before boarding the plane for it to be clean. I think that was really poor on their part."

Pros: "I am impressed! I will be booking through Avianca again!"

Pros: "The flights were on time, with great service."
Cons: "Nothing!"

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."

Pros: "the wind was high on the landing into costa rica but the pilot made a smooth landing"

Pros: "All was amazing"

Pros: "The attention I received."
Cons: "The food."

Cons: "The food was disgusting! I had not eaten for several hours and was looking forward to having nice snack as I began the first part of my three flight journey; however, the "croissant" with cheese they gave me tasted horrible. By nature, I am not a picky eater but I could not finish my snack. I realize this was merely an hour-long flight from Guatemala City to San Jose, but why not just serve peanuts like every other airline."

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Service with a smile."
Cons: "We almost missed the flight sitting right in front of the gate. No announcements could be heard in the gate area and when we asked, they said they were already removing our luggage, Very odd. Food was terrible! Choices were pasta and cold chicken salad. I had the pasta, which was bland ravioli in two bland sauces. I was surprised, because I had experienced better food on recent international flights."

Cons: "The floor was litte bit dirty"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Felt agents held me back at the check-in counter resulting in me missing my initial flight and voiding my complete routing. Had to fly on a flight 7hrs after my booked flight because Delta had no other option (very untrue as there were other airlines flying to my final destination. Delta just didn't bother providing good customer service"

Pros: "SLC ground gate crew was awesome."

Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."

Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."

Pros: "Seat and headrests especially were nice"
Cons: "Very bumpy rides in both cases"

Cons: "Kids yelling"

Pros: "Majority of the crew was pleasant"
Cons: "One flight attendant was EXTREMELY rude to me for no reason"

Cons: "Delayed boarding and take off"

Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."

Pros: "Laura, who checked us in was extraordinarily great."

Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."

Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"

Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Pros: "Westjet's employees were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Delta told us we were flying out on a Delta flight, and gave us a Delta flight number. In reality it had placed us on a Westjet flight without telling us, and we had no idea we were to check in with a different airline. And because Delta unilaterally changed our flight time without telling Westjet, we were unable to check in online and were later told that we were booked on the wrong flight by Delta. Delta's communications with us and with Westjet were deplorable."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process. Hassle free flight."
Cons: "The chicken wrap was terrible!"

Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "Compliance with departure times"

Cons: "Boarding and takeoff were delayed almost 1/2 an hour."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Boarding process in Panama is very disorganized"

Cons: "Checking process in Miami was slow"

Pros: "Excellent!!!"

Cons: "Food quality"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."

Cons: "Venía de Mexico a Panamá y el vuelo se retrasó. Cuando fui a abordar el vuelo a Costa Rica habian cambiado la sala de abordaje y por poco me deja el vuelo. Quizá lo hubieran anunciado en el vuelo que venia de México me hubiera ahorrado tiempo y carreras."

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."

Pros: "Now you are giving away free muffins instead of insulting with a granola bar....THANK YOU FOR LISTENING"
Cons: "HOW CAN YOU NOT OFFER COFFEE ON AN AM FLIGHT??? THAT's CRAZY!!!"

Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"

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: "Super nice crew! Gave us food even though it was a 50 min flight."

Pros: "No delays on departure. Smooth boarding process"

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: "Planes are clean and crew is nice"
Cons: "Overall they are a poorly organized airline, they will over sell their tickets and then expect you to give yours away. Boarding was messy."

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: "One of your crew members went above and beyond to help a family that was sitting next to me. That kind if service was unexpected and a huge help to the family. We were all impressed. They were all very cordial and polite."

Pros: "Very friendly and professional service combined with good food"

Pros: "2 free checked bags, and hot sandwich and drink in coach"
Cons: "Can't think on anything"

Pros: "El personal muy amable. El vuelo salió a tiempo y llegó bien. La comida buena."

Cons: "I already wrote this in their customer feedback, and I haven't gotten a response."

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: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"
Cons: "---"

Pros: "- nice staff - food on the plane"

Cons: "Touch screen didn't work"

Pros: "The flight was all good. I had a good experience, I would like to add that getting to the airport 2hours early is really not necessary. It's not a big airport and I spend a lot of idle time there.. I liked Copa airlines and will use them again."

Pros: "I liked the spacious seats and free food and drinks. I appreciated the flight being on time."

Pros: "Inspite of being a very short flight, they offered food and beverages and for free :)"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No series or tv shows"

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

Pros: "I love the genral flight experice. I found the crew very helpful and friendly. I liked the food."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "I was looking to fly to Costa Rica and found a price offer for $70 through Volaris. I thought this was a good deal until I looked at the baggage policy. Turns out you have to pay for each bag,bringing my luggage total to $50. Thats when I noticed Copa Airlnes had the same price for airfare plus two free bags! I was sold. Overall great service!"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight due to flight being changed to a different gate than what was written in my ticket."

Pros: "It was a short flight....they made the trip comfortable, and on time..."
Cons: "No complaints....."

Cons: "Flights were delayed"

Pros: "Agent issued boarding passes and luggage ticket but somehow didn't process payment. After waiting 4 hours for boarding we were denied entry into plane. Somehow agent overrode the safeguards and was able to issue boarding pass. Very lax security and agent even denied seeing credit card given to them."
Cons: "Ticket counter personell"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "NOTHING"

Pros: "The great service on bord at all time"
Cons: "The line we had to make at the checkin... but after that ok"

Pros: "The service overall is great. The airplane is comfortable. Airport in Panama has very good service. I would take Copa again."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above. Even after a long layover and a change of planes, it was still the cramped seats and an old plane."

Pros: "WestJet is by far the friendliest and most professional airline"

Pros: "I loved flying West Jet and would happily do it again. The food was good (preordered) and we got to our destination safe and sound which is always much appreciated. Our flight was on time and we had no trouble boarding or any technical issues at all."
Cons: "I didn't like how internet/any entertainment had to be pre paid. We already pay a lot (even for the food...$9 wraps!), so to charge for literally everything seems a little much. Also not a fan of the reclining seats. We have zero leg room to begin with, I don't need some stranger crushing my knee because he wants to attempt to move back. I just shoved my knee into the back of the chair so he couldn't move back anymore."

Pros: "We arrived 40 minutes early. Yeah after having started our trip at 1:00 AM. Staff was great and westjet connect worked well."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Crew was friendly. We got drinks and snacks twice on the 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The cushions are getting thinner with every new plane. That makes for hard surface and an extra rough turbulence experience. Arm rests are almost non existent again very uncomfortable on a long flight. No Monitors in seat so no uou have to 1 have your own device or RENT one from WestJet. No place you put the device, so you must hold it in your hand for hours. VERY uncomfortable."

Pros: "Though there was lots of air turbulence the Crew added humour in executing their duties which made the trip cautious, calm and added comfortable."

Pros: "This was my first time flying Plus and I don't think I can ever go back. Worth every penny."

Pros: "Easy check-in, bag drop off even with elderly person traveling with us. Great staff at the airport."

Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"

Pros: "Excellent service and departure time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. FIVE hour delay no apology no meal served and absolutely rude customer service by flight attendants. Will never ever travel at West Jet."

Cons: "The flight ran out of all sandwichsd and croissants before we were served. I think that was poor planning. The rest was all not healthy food, so we had nothing to eat!! Norma Sukornyk"

Pros: "They were quick and efficient gwttong everyone ready for a on time depature and we actually arrived a bit early too."
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Cons: "The long delay, 2 kids crying continuous, no place to smoke, no one explained to me that I had to pick up my luggage in Toronto! So now my suitcase is delayed! I was told that it would go straight through to destination. I will never use Delta again! And I will not fly through Detroit or Toronto again!!!"

Pros: "Smooth flight, food wasn't to bad either"
Cons: "The amount of juice or drink you get could be a bit more"

Pros: "Comfortable newish aircraft. No entertainement, but it is ok for a short flight; same with food."
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage, I received it about 36 hours later. Most important: they never called me for updates (contrary to their own information sheet). I had to call several times; their online follow-up is badly set up, too."

Pros: "I was upgraded for free, and everyone was incredibly nice and great at their jobs!"

Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent, very professional, friendly, and helpful. The flight itself was smooth, and on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Took 30 minutes from push-back to runway in TO. Cabin was unpleasantly hot."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1.5 hours because incoming plane did not arrive. Finally took off 2.5 hours late. Just in time to arrive in Charlottetown to a severe thunderstorm. Circled til low on fuel then flew to Moncton. Refuelled and flew back to Charlottetown, arriving at 3 a.m., four hours late. The weather delay was understandable but WestJet's poor scheduling created the problem. Worst of all, the airline never told anyone what was going on, not the passengers nor the people waiting for them at the airport. Total silence. Unbelievable but typical for airlines."

Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."

Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed other then that was great"

Pros: "NOTHING"

Pros: "The crew was OK, just a bit too patronising and hyper"
Cons: "Seats were damn uncomfortable and tight. The attendant making the announcements spoke soon fast, you had to wonder if she is running a marathon....I could hardly hear her full sentences. One of the serving attendant was a tad patronising and slightly annoying. Like no one wants to listen to "innuendos" at that time of the night."

Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"

Cons: "4 hour flight at dinner time. No food. What were they thinking? They ran out of sandwiches after the first row of passengers. Why even bother with menus when there is no food to support?"

Pros: "Staff were super friendly and welcoming"

Pros: "Everything was good, haven't used westjet in a long time as I live in the states now. Will use them as often as I can."

Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."

Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."

Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"
Cons: "We were delayed ... was supposed to take off at 7:30 didn't take off until 9 .. I've sat on this plane longer than I was in the air"

Pros: "Quickest flight ever."

Pros: "Held up at YYZ for "lightning" beyond West Jet control."

Pros: "Flight left on time and staff were polite"
Cons: "PA system could be better"

Pros: "The crew and staff as a whole were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing to be honest was a great experience"

Pros: "It was a last minute trip, but I was able to bookwhat I needed fairly easy. I was given a lot of options as far as time and price."
Cons: "Sometime a lot of options can be a little stressful and/or overwhelming, but kind of expected with this type of booking site."

Pros: "Darim made my flight much more enjoyable and comfortable. Great flight attendant."
Cons: "I paid extra to select my seat earlier but my headset slot was not working and more than half the channels were not working anyways."

Pros: "Constant thanks from crew for the passenger patience with delays due to flight crew, and then weather delays - 2 hrs total Liked the captain came out to speak, clearly I might add, to explain the weather delays and provide updates..."
Cons: "Can't complain about what was beyond my control, but flight crew needing to come from another flight and then the other side of the airport to set up, resulting in hour delay - seems like alternative should have been available or system needs a process review to improve efficiency"

Pros: "The gate and air crew were very friendly. Flight right on time."
Cons: "Not much legroom."

Pros: "Everything was good Quick easy boarding Friendly air crew Love Westjet!!"

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "No on board entertainment. iPads did not work"

Pros: "La experiencia en general fue buena"
Cons: "El sistema de facturación. Me dijo la aerolínea que Kayak pago con moneda rusa, entonces no podrían entregar un comprobante fiscal (CFDI)"

Pros: "Boarding & disembarking"
Cons: "Covid protocol"

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "A more organized boarding process"

Pros: "Crew was good, food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment, I saw the Wifi stuff when I bought the ticket, but there was no internet connection there. Besides, no movies, no screen... boring."

Cons: "Be in time, over 1 hr delayed."

Pros: "The large plane that I was on was great. Comfortable and a smooth ride. Movies were good. Drinks good."
Cons: "Food could be a little better."

Cons: "Over booked"

Pros: "Great plane with great service!"

Pros: "Movie was good."
Cons: "WiFi and friendly staff. Staff at Guadalajara were inpatient and unfriendly so was the staff in Fresno"

Pros: "Entertainment on the long haul was good, no entertainment on the fight from Mexico City to La Paz"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes"

Pros: "Enjoyable flight with great crew!!!"

Pros: "No complaint at all, I am very satisfied."
Cons: "Gate no printed on boarding passes. I understand that gate no are subuject to change, but at least it would point me on the Wright direction"

Cons: "Attitude of the Aeromexico flight attendants . No customer service skills . Rude and disregarding"

Pros: "Luggage was found that was good"
Cons: "Horrible day nobody here to guide you or help you and then charge you an arm and a leg."

Pros: "Flight on time, all personal was very helpful and kind"
Cons: "No choices for breakfast and the one served on first class not so great."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for along time. One piece of luggage was missing and was returned with holes. In other words, destroyed"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Ease in ticketing."
Cons: "The hardest part was the long layover. I didn’t dress warmly enough, so I had to keep moving!"

Pros: "Servicio. Puntualidad."
Cons: "Todo bien"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, leg room much better than any US airline. Crew is smart and efficient."

Pros: "Our ~5 hour lay over in Benito Juarez airport was not good."
Cons: "Airport was very warm no AC. Crowded. Poor variety for sit down restaurants. They too were crowded and poor service and expensive."

Cons: "Rough Landing"

Pros: "Vuelo acorde con el horario establecido"
Cons: "Regular atención del personal en el aeropuerto"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Cancelo mi vuelo cuando abortamos"

Cons: "Crew standing in the back talking to each other with their backs on us"

Pros: "First class was nice onboard the plane, but too tired to enjoy it since it was a 1am flight."
Cons: "The counters did not open until 10pm, only 2hrs B4 "the flight closed at 12 midnight), even though they say arrive 180 minutes early. The "SkyPriority" line was the slowest line. At the outset two agents weren't even helping guests. This was a very frustrating experience. Unfortunately, I had to pickup and recheck my bag and ended up waiting outside security for several hours because there was no where to drop the bag after passing immigration from my connecting flight. I suggest AM get another airline's baggage handler to recheck bags for early arriving customers so at least they can wait inside security where amenities abound."

Pros: "Seat assignment"
Cons: "Airlines are skipping on quality"

Pros: "Close for connecting and had lots of staff to get you there on time."
Cons: "Food mediocre"

Pros: "Aeromexico keeps impressing me! The professionalism is great. The timing and ease of boarding was perfect. And the leg room and on-board accommodations make it a comfortable journey. Definitely now among my list of favorite airlines!"

Pros: "Good timing."
Cons: "Overweight passangers could not lower their arm rests and spilled into other passangers seats. No personal entertainment."

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"

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: "No internet service available."

Cons: "Aeromexico's conditions of carriage allow them to cancel your flight rebook you days later with no liability. They pay no compensation for delays that last days . Take at your own risk, I learn the hard way."

Pros: "Nothing. We’re not there yet"
Cons: "Everything. AM customer service is beyond horrible and unhelpful."

Pros: "5 stars to the supervisor Octavio"
Cons: "The rest of the Team do not know what customer service is"

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: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"

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"

Pros: "La tripulación"
Cons: "Son aviones poco cómodos me da la impresión que son viejos nada modernos Todo les suena cuando aterrizó Pensé que eran mejores La ida a México no tenían pantallas por tanto un viaje aburrido El regreso por lo menos tendría una pantalla"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "The meal was cold"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Spacious seats"
