All 4 Copa flights were excellent, but on all 4, the food was seriously bad (and I normally like airline food!)
This flight is pretty basic. No amenities whatsoever. seats were very uncomfortable, specially the head rest. Boarding was a bit disorganized.
Wis there was more leg room for tall persons like myself.
Cons: "The food options for dietary restrictions"
Pros: "Business class. Seat was comfy. Reclined quite a bit. Food was great. Staff was not very happy or helpful tho compared to other business class flights I’ve done. Movie selection was not good at all. Very dated. 4 new releases."
Cons: "Staff was not very happy or helpful tho compared to other business class flights I’ve done. Movie selection was not good at all. Very dated. 4 new releases."
Pros: "The crew was good, the seats are too close to the other one which make them not very confortable."
Cons: "The seats."
Cons: "Copa check-in in Chicago was awful, and it wasn’t just for my family and me. The manger and several employees were rude and seemed clueless about what they were doing. I shouldn’t be surprised that none of our luggage arrived because of the unorganized check-in but it just added to the frustration."
Pros: "I liked that everything was smooth and everyone was helpful"
Cons: "The attention of the staff could have been better, never the less, they were an amazing crew."
Pros: "Great food, friendly service, answered all of my questions."
Cons: "New entertainment system requiring one’s own cell phone, layover too short in Panama, many people had trouble catching connecting flights."
Pros: "Every thing was excellent"
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable seating, great staff. Route was convenient, direct flight. Customs at Tampa area was very easy to manage. No glitches during the trip."
Cons: "In Panama City, Over one hour in line to check-in to get boarding pass. Nice that food was offered, but it wasn’t tasty. The entertainment was on drop down screens and I couldn’t see the one closest to my seat. And only one option of movies to view. Another passenger had difficulty with the headphones and sound that wouldn’t work"
Pros: "Boarding process and crew service were ok"
Cons: "Comfort and entertainment could be better"
Pros: "The size of the aircraft.period."
Cons: "A crewman took up space when we were loading the plane to discuss something with a customer that could have waited until everyone, including me got a chance to sit down. Then, they almost forgot to ask us for beverages during the meal which was horrible according to several neighbors- I was not hungry."
Pros: "I have never been on such a fast flight. Great time"
Pros: "Food was tasty and served quickly ...staff was friendly and extremely polite"
Cons: "The usual with all planes when you fly economy ...cramped seats"
Pros: "I really liked being genuinely greeted at the entrance of the cabin and when the crew treated me like they already knew me and made me feel welcome aboard."
Cons: "The food. A beef sandwich. almost plain."
Pros: "The stewardess gave us a row of seats after noting that my husband and I were in two separate rows."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, helpful and kind. I was sad and tearful when I boarded just from saying goodbye to some people I love. One of the crew, Maria, was very kind and brought me tissues and asked if she could do anything for me. She also checked back in with me. I really appreciated her kindness and care."
Pros: "Flight attendants wonderful. Very accommodating no language barrier"
Cons: "Great experience"

Pros: "I enjoyed the ease of business class from LAX to PTY"
Cons: "Food and snack options were somewhat limited. Although there were quite a few titles for the entertainment, I had a hard time watching them due to technical issues with the touch scree."
Pros: "The staff/flight crew was amazing. Films and music selection were great and best of all free. Food and drinks came around at the perfect time."
Cons: "The area we were in before and during boarding made it a bit of a hassle because we didn't have access to the sitting area until right before boarding time. It took a while to get into the sitting area."
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Lost all our checked luggage...on a direct flight."
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: "Flight was a couple hours delayed"
Pros: "The crew and staff were wonderful and professional"
Pros: "Clean, new airplane"
Cons: "The business class seats and service were simple and basic"

Cons: "Delay of about 25 minutes, was because we were waiting the catering to arrive"
Pros: "Flying business class for significant less money from Rio to NYC/JFK."
Cons: "The seats are 'old style' business class, not fully flat sleepers. On a very flight like Rio to Panama City I missed the the flat sleepers you get on wide body aircraft. On the Panama to JFK flight, the crew was less friendly, while on the Rio to Panama flight the crrew was excellent and very friendly."
Pros: "Pontuality, hospitality"
Cons: "food, entertainment is null"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was very friendly. Seating"
Cons: "Seating was in the back of the plane."
Pros: "Easy and fast connections. Flight on time.great"
Pros: "It was my first time with COPA. I went to Buenos Aires with them (Montréal»Panama City and Panama City»BA). Aircrafts were much nicer and newer for the Panama»BA portion. The boarding was on-time and the staff was very nice. Considering the price I paid, the food was totally acceptable. Also, they automatically made my check-in for me and my son the day before our departure (returning back to Montréal) which was a pleasant surprise! I do recommend COPA for a good price/service ratio."
Cons: "The aircraft still had TVs popping out from the celling with 1 movie for the whole craft. I found that a bit archaic..."
Cons: "I had to go through another check point (inside the airport,for abconnecting flight) made me throw away a sealed bottle of Gatorade that I purchased inside the airport 5 minutes earlier for 5 dollars. That is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive and the company said it would deliver it yesterday, Monday September 12. It's already Tuesday September 13, the luggage hasn't arrived and no one answers when I call to the number given to me (787-791-1035)."
Pros: "Super nice boarding staff, timely departure, plane was half full, so seats were roomier, free alcohol."

Pros: "super easy and comfortable and quick flight!"
Pros: "safe and courteous"

Cons: "The meal was cold. It would have made quite an enjoyable difference had it been hot."
Pros: "The food, the crew."
Cons: "The leg room is almost non existent. I'm 5'2 and was super uncomfortable."
Pros: "No fuzz. Quick trip."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and tried really hard to help"
Cons: "They turned the air on high to sell blankets. The boarding process was an unorganized mess. The plane was filthy!"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "The seats in economy class were not veryncomfortable. I guess this was because I am a tall person."
Pros: "Crew was not friendly at all. Didn't smile or said hi when boarding"
Cons: "Friendlier crew members"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarded quickly."

Pros: "I love flying Caribbean Airlines to Trinidad and Tobago"
Cons: "I like the crew service"
Pros: "Our flight from Paramaribo to Port of Spain left 30 minutes ahead of schedule, something I would never have associated with the laid back style of Suriname. Note, no entertainment or use of electronic devices during the flight."
Cons: "It was an early morning flight, scheduled for 5.40am. Since the airport is 60 mins from Paramaribo, we had to leave our accommodation at 2.30am. Only tea, coffee, water and soft drinks offered for refreshment on the flight, so BYO breakfast."
Pros: "Acceptable crew performance"
Cons: "Chaotic transfer process. Not given instructions on the how and the where to get from the Georgetown flight to the Miami flight. We were just ordered off the plane seemingly as an afterthought, and didn't know what to do thereafter. After eventually finding our departure gate the agent we voiced our displeasure to said all that mattered was that we found the gate and we were safe. Not satisfactory. Not acceptable for a customer oriented business"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Pros: "Good flight on time overall good"
Cons: "Passage ways narrow causing u to be constantly bumped into if aisle seat"
Cons: "plane seats were not able to recline . lack of comfort ."

Pros: "I love the Friendly staff at Caribbean Airlines. I always enjoy the smooth flights, take-off and on time arrivals."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that boarding from the back of the aircraft towards the front of the aircraft was meant for speedy boarding process, yet it still took FOREVER! for me to board the aircraft. That boarding process just did not work. Other than that, I LOVE CARIBBEAN AIRLINES!."
Pros: "Clean planes. No delays. Friendly staff. Decent food."
Cons: "They will mot let you use you ipad or iphone in airplanr mode during taxiing takeoff and landing. A bit atchaic and very annoying"
Pros: "Check in was very efficient. Kudos in this area."

Cons: "The. Seats are too close."
Pros: "Overall good flight."
Cons: "I wish there was additional vegetarian meals to cover me and my family."
Pros: "The local reflection was there in team. They were friendly and professional . They are knowledgeable"
Cons: "The seating can BE more international"
Cons: "The food/breakfast was poor. Two unaccompanied minors in front of me was loud and always fighting. Seats didnt go back no foot rest and the ear buds didnt fit ear."
Pros: "the food given on the airline was great especially since it was hot the flight attendants were pleasants"
Cons: "the seats were comfortable if i were told how far back my seat was , i would have changed me seats"
Pros: "Timely departure of flight. The fact that you are still allowed a xhexked piece of luggage and served a hot meal. Our flight also landed earlier than expected which was a welcomed bonus."
Pros: "+ Quick boarding, no delays"
Cons: "+ Was put in middle seat even though there were entire rows unoccupied."
Pros: "Boarding at JFK was fast and well Organized"
Cons: "Boarding in Guyana needs to be more organized and more inform about delays and crew members have to be more helpful with the elderly"
Pros: "Friendly staff ground and air"
Pros: "I have been burned already flying this carrier but was pleasantly surprised by their efficiency. The crew was friendly. Agents were attentive and pleasant. Flight got in early. Baggage was not delayed. Food service was good. Very atypical to get a hot meal for a flight under 5 hours."
Cons: "Not a very new plane. The captain was silent. I think passengers should at least hear from the captain. At least a welcome message."
Pros: "Nice staff and cabin crew"
Pros: "Staff were very courteous. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "I wonder why we had to be searched by customs in Trinidad after landing there from Orlando. What could we have picked up in the AIR ? Can some one explain to me. This was our second experience at Piarco.. I would appreciate an answer."
Pros: "The quickness with boarding, the quickness with getting off the ground and the efficient meal, drinks and quiet time that followed...not a lot of fuss...perfect for an overnight flight"
Cons: "We went from hearing, 'business class, those with small children and those that need extra help with boarding' to no other announcements.. everyone just lined up and got on the flight..we had no direction regarding order or rows... One other piece: we heard about a passenger having something stolen out of the overhead. That was unfortunate but I do not know how Caribbean Airlines could help that...but due to the large number of carryon luggage, we were forced to put our backpack under our seats...and that made for a most uncomfortable flight..I wish there was a way to parcel out overhead space...i checked my luggage due to space and others crammed in whatever they could..."
Cons: "My seat was a middle seat and that was NOT what I chose when I purchased the flight. I'm 5'11 and I was squished in between two men. If you are going to change seat assignments then you need to notify the customer."
Pros: "I really liked the fact that they were on time. No issues with checking in, boarding, in flight and landing...thank God."
Cons: "They showed movie, however it didn't work. The sound was horrible and the headphone didn't sit well in the socket."
Pros: "Overall I found this to be a good experience. The flight departed and arrived on time, which is always important to me. The flight was too short for food and entertainment."
Fast boarding and on time.
Pros: "At 6’9” tall, it was decent"
Cons: "Not on the flight"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Pros: "Everything was on time considering the heavy Holidays travels."
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Pros: "The seating is cramped as has become customary."
Pros: "No amazing crew, just average. The should airline should have follow through on a specific request, but the airline's computer wipes out such things."
Cons: "Airlines should listen to the requests of the passengers."
Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Pros: "Fast boarding, flight relatively smooth, got to my destination pretty quickly as well."
Cons: "Typical tight seating, aircraft showing age."
Cons: "The wifi signup process not seemless with Android."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the flight attendant was very helpful with all the questions I had, thanks for the wonderful first time flying."
Cons: "Nothing give a 10/10"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Pros: "Even thou flight was delayed we arrive at a decent time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours due mechanical issue Missed connecting flight Waited in line for 2 hours for a hotel comp. had to pay 20$ to get to hotel because there was no shuttle Still stuck in Dallas. Never made it to Sam fran. Extremely disappointed I expect compensation"
Cons: "The drink service came a little late in the flight... but that is a suggestion more than a complaint."
Pros: "Crew on and off plans were helpful and nice."
Cons: "Delayed for hours for a short one hour flight with multiple gate switches."
Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Business class crew was extremely rude and unfriendly."
Cons: "KTerrible coffee. Tasted stale"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Pros: "good price and a good route"
Cons: "This turned out to be a 'code share' flight operated by American Airlines. As such, neither Qantas nor American Airlines would allow me to buy premium seats so we could have extra leg room. They said the 'code share' blocks seat sales! Be ware Also found out that American Airlines does not serve meals on flights from Toronto to LAX. I was told they only serve meals on "international flights" but that I could buy a sandwich or snack. Unfortunately they only had 4 sandwiches on board , which sold within the first 2 rows of the plane!"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"
Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."
Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"
Pros: "I liked having a window seat."
Cons: "My screen was broken, so for 6 1/2 hours, I was unable to watch any movies and didn't see the safety video either."
Pros: "Boarding was structured as usual"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. No reason was given. There seemed to be an issue with the maintenance log, which I overheard I arrived late to Piarco"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "A 1 hour flight, delayed. Meant I missed my entire flight and stayed I Ottawa International for 8 joirs"
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Pros: "Great staff!"
Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then without notice back on schedule and the we boarded and sat on the tarmac for an hour. Why board us if we can’t leave?"
Cons: "Giving your guest a cup of coffee is basic. To tell guest to get her own is a no no. Better training??"
Pros: "It really sad to know on a 5 and a half hour flight they only offer coffee tea or soda ☹☹ . Never knew about the changes in purchasing a meal or snack.."
Cons: "Should have been informed somewhere about the changes in purchasing a meal."
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "Did not get to go"
Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent, most of the staff except one was excellent. The flight was smooth. Got hooked on a new series that I started watching on the plane."
Cons: "The wait time between flights on the way home was brutal but you expect that if you are flying on points. What made it worse was that I had to leave the secure area and collect my bags then wait 8 hours in the airport only to go through security again. On top of that trying to get my baggage tag there was a female agent that should have retired 100 years ago directing people like it was our fault she still had to work. If you can't be nice you should not be in customer service."
Pros: "My mother's attendants and the flight crew were very friendly and courteous to her."
Cons: "No information or communication about bringing your own food or snacks on board. No food, snacks,entertainment or immigration forms were available. There was some food for purchase but if you didn't have a credit or debit card then you couldn't buy it. My mother was in a wheelchair waiting to board in Toronto and would have bought food to either eat there or carry on the plane but another passenger was severely reprimanded for getting out of her wheelchair and going to the bathroom, so my mother was intimidated to stay seated and not go to the bathroom nor ask any questions as to if she could go and buy some food or snack to eat while she was waiting. Only juices were served. She was flying since 11 am and arrived at 9:30 pm without any food. The website as well as all emails should inform about luggage weight as well as food and entertainment. On a layover the attendants should be more cooperative with disabled passengers and allow them to use the bathroom as well as to go and buy food."
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."

Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "I was rebooked so my new flight AC 705 was directed straight to Toronto. Only thing I disliked was that gentleman who was left at the gate for my original flight at 8:30am. He was rude!!!!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Unable to buy food or drinks on plane without a credit. I don't have one !!!"

Pros: "I especially like the agent at the United Lounge in Denver who changed my flight to one that left 3 hours before my original flight.

Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Cons: "Hello I would like to submit a formal complaint. I could not complete early check in yesterday due to website maintenance. I arrived to the LAX airport on time today and due the misdirection of the ticket attendant I wasn’t able to select a seat, which I tried to do online approx 24 hours ahead of time but the site was not working or down. I’m a larger person with spinal impairments and unfortunately I was given a middle seat. This will undoubtedly cause significant pain during and after this long flight. I’m very displeased with this and I would like to request a credit or like compensation for my trouble and suffering. Advance thanks for your understanding. "

Pros: "The safe did a great job"
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."

Pros: "The seats in premium economy are comfortable and the the entertainment is good"
Cons: "Their was a 3 hour delay but is was for weather conditions in Newark"
Cons: "United sucked on this leg. Flight never should have left Chicago. We were diverted to Oklahoma City, where United abandoned us. System was unresponsive and noone could override the system. Folks at the counter could not cancel the diverted flight, so United was not able to rebook us on other flights. This was at midnight to 2:00 am. I stayed at the airport to catch a 5:00 am flight to Houston, then to Omaha, then had to rent a car to get the rest of the way. United lied to us about what was happening to us several times. Then abandoned us when the pilots timed out."
Pros: "Staff members were courteous."

Cons: "Still in airport. Plane was canceled"
Cons: "The first leg of my flight, the Madison to Chicago portion, the flight attendant was rude and most unhelpful. We were flying a smaller play and my carry on would not fit in the small overhead compartments. When I informed him of this, and let him know I was getting off the plane to have my bag stowed he was very rude. When I returned back to my seat he made a snide comment to me ask well. The other 3 flights were great, flight attendants were great and no concerns or complaints."

Cons: "No issues to complain about"
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
