Pros: "The crew as super nice"
Cons: "The space between lines of seats"
Pros: "Plane was empty"
Cons: "Avianca lies that my full size carryon baggage won’t fit to try and change me more money. It fit in with ease like it always does. The gauges they use are vastly undersized and they know that as I had to argue with the boarding lady and the other employees quietly agreed with me."

Cons: "Late boarding, big lines."
Pros: "Fairly new airplane seats with TV screens, USB slots, complimentary headphone."
Cons: "Flight was moved 6 hours with no explaination a few weeks before (apparently there's an on going strike), so we had to pay to switch our connecting flight. The day of, there was a 2hr delay so we missed our connecting flight. Food was ok. Drink selection was mediocre. Very limited TV and movie selection. Probably should have stuck with my instincts to fly with a larger carrier."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled and moved forward two days. An additional layover was added. I had to rebook a new flight completely and almost missed my vacation. This trip ended up costing me $1,000 more in travel and I have no idea if I will be getting a refund from the airline. I am pissed."
Pros: "Price in comparison with the airline website"
Cons: "Everything was ok!!!"
Cons: "I never got to my destination on the date I want it"

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "inflight entertainment was sorely lacking"
Cons: "Follow through with reservations made 6+ months ago. I shouldn't have been on stand by and the vouchers to make up were absolutely ridiculous. $10 does not make up for the major mistake your company made."

Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable for long flights."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I enjoyed my flight"

Pros: "TV options, meals, check in"
Cons: "The bus shuttle in Panama and in Bogota."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. Crew was ok."
Cons: "Lousy food. Small, old aircraft (737). No individual screens, no phone chargers, asked for a repeat hot dish and was told yes, but never got it. It lacks behind many other carriers. I was expecting much better."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment so very boring"
Pros: "The flight from Panama to San Francisco was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."
Pros: "First flight had lots of leg room and a hot sandwich. Great deal."
Pros: "The staff was nice and I liked that it had a TV screen for each chair with entertainment."
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat which stayed it had extra leg room. It seemed to be the same as every other seat. The only benefit is you get to board sooner and get off the plane sooner. As far as extra room I should have booked an emergency door seat."

Cons: "The airline did not had a great variety of movies or TV shows."
Pros: "the two agents at the gate where kind and helpful and this review is not directly at the employees of Copa. however this is not my first rodeo with Copa on their oversold strategy and they should have sent out an email about the situation and certain people would have stayed home or their hotel for next flight."
Cons: "$400 voucher (less than price of our ticket) to use for future Copa flight. LOL. because of the many people being bumped, it took 2 hours to process all our vouchers (taxi/hotel/$400) *the flight was at 6:14pm but we knew we couldn't get on around 5:40pm, and left the airport at 8:20pm"
Pros: "They gave me a upgrade!! What else did I want."
Pros: "Great Entertainment choices on this flight. I hardly even noticed the time passing."
Cons: "They didn't have any food I could eat, except for an incredibly small salad. The crew informed me that I could have requested a special meal 24 hrs in advance, but that information was sadly provided too late."
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room, very good food provided."
Cons: "additional xray at gate and requirement to leave all water bottle behind."
Cons: "Nelson Jose zelaya durmió en una sill en ese aeropuerto porque no lo dejaron hacer conexión a punta cana que era su destino; porque nunca dijeron nada tanto el Consulado de Panamá como la aerolínea que cuando una persona ha sido deportará de US A no puede viajar; utilizaron el fly que estaba comprado para su devolución al país de origen; ustedes creen es justo?"
Pros: "I love flying Copa! My friend and I had only a 40 minute layover on Tuesday morning from San Jose, CR to Panama City to Chicago. We were pretty worried about missing the flight in Panama City because that meant we missed our fight home. The crew was wonderful and changed our seats to the front of the plane so we wouldn't miss the flight. If he hadn't had done that, we 100% would have missed the flight .I will recommend Copa to everyone."
Pros: "I liked the fact that there was variety for entertainment! There had great movies, new ones, not all airlines focus on that. Another thing was the food and drinks that the offered. They really kept passengers happy."

Cons: "Now they turn off the air conditioner. Terrible so hot. Dont bring any more a decent food"
Pros: "The seat was OK"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours on departure and the reason for the delay was never communicated.

And the luggage took 45 minutes to arrive at the carousel"
Pros: "Very nice crew The variety of beverages served easy boarding process"

Pros: "Clean, well run airline"
Pros: "The flight was on time and enjoyable."
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..."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old plane - seat comfort was below expectations"

Pros: "Crew were fairly attentive, have experienced better. Liked the Canadian entertainment options, even if very limited."
Cons: "Seats were okay, the plane is really showing it's age. Movie selection was very limited, and very dated."

Pros: "We arrived where we wanted to go"
Cons: "Separated my son and I into middle seats. Made us sit on the tarmac for 30 minutes due a completely predictable issue. We should have been allowed to stay at the gate. Seating is horribly cramped. Less that friendly flight attendants. Arrived late on a red eye in perfect weather. Otherwise delightfu"

Pros: "Short and Sweet smooth fligjt"
Cons: "Horrible delays in boarding no tv no entertainment at all."

Pros: "Consistencies on bagage claim info, and changes in boarding gates."
Cons: "Inconsistencies, on my way back to montreal from the philippines, i was informed that baggage would be claimed directly to final port of destination but didnt, when i arrived at toronto i had to take my bagage and drop it off again, although my next flight would be with west jet airlines, korean air was not able to communicate well with their airline partners as to bagage claim and changes in boarding gates."
Pros: "The staff on board the westjet plane were nice but a bit short (except one blonde women flight attendant, she was lovely). The others seemed to be a bit short, likely due to heat or annoyance at punta cana airport"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was by far a complete failure. I understand we are held hostage by PUJ airport but westjet needs to step up their canadian staff there. Language by westjet staff basically Spanish only and rude. We waited on a bus to drive 10 feet to our plane and the driver seemed to enjoy letting us sit in a closed bus with babies and children and elderly. One day this will cause a serious medical issue and westjet will pay dearly. Again, I am aware we cant control that but having a canadian manager there to ensure common sense is used with their customers from gate to plane is a must. Until better I will never fly westjet from there again. On the plane they ran out of food. Again major organizational issues from the companies point of view. Also made me pay twice to pick my seats on my connecting flights. This is petty and cheap. I will be demanding a discount or rebate from westjet due to all the above. If not my story will continue."
Pros: "The air hostess were very nice and dis their job well. I complained about the baording lady who got us boarded on to flight and they apologized. They saw the whole incident when the lady came on the flight but they did know know her name when I asked later. That served well with smiles and jokes"
Cons: "I went on the flight running through security to make it on time for my flight. Unfortunately security was too long and took a while. I forgot my hand luggage when I grabbed my other bag. I tempted to go out and get it after I boarded. She spoked high toned voice instructing me to go back on flight. I went back and i did... she brought my bag from security I was grateful until she spoked loud in the mid section of the plane to me sarcastically and rudely "so you left a whole bag" and walked out after placing it up. I was sitting way back and people saw it all. I felt she embarrassed and very bad and i think customers should got be treated that way."
Pros: "Price is great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "On time! Roomy cabin space and leg room"
Pros: "Crew is always great."
Cons: "The Encore planes are the cramped, noisy and slower Q400. If you request a window seat expect the possibility that you won’t be able to comfortably place both feet on the floor. Added bonus, to balance the plane they sometimes need to request passengers to move from the front to the back which slows down departure times."
Cons: "Horrible trip. Never again"

Cons: "Flight crew arrived late delaying take off"
Pros: "Contrary to my previous experience this flight was on time and the staff was very courteous"

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."
Cons: "West Jet connectivity would not work for my phone or ipad. There weren't able to fix the service."
Cons: "I had to pay for earphones. Even if I didn't want the earphones I couldn't shut off the tv screen which really bothered me. Will you, in he future,charge us for using the washroom facilities?"

Pros: "You pay for what you get. WestJet staff are always wonderful. The fligh is a flight."

Pros: "on time and couteous"
Cons: "cramped and the seat was not padded"
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "20 Minutes delays for take off and coming late at yUL was a nightmare"
Pros: "Finally sleeping in my bed in Montreal"
Cons: "Cramped seats , no elbow room , could not sleep , very difficult to sleep - muscle pain in shoulders lead to nerve impingement and numb arms . If westjet cared about their reviews they would offer an upgrade on my return to make a fair judgement again their product line"
Cons: "Il serait bien d'avertir plus à l'avance les passagers au sujet de l'application nécessaire pour l'entertainement ou permettre de l télécharger via le wifi de westjet"
Pros: "In-flight crew was great!"
Cons: "Manager and crew at the check-in counter are incompetent!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service and departure time"
AA has consistent maintenance problems that causes customers to miss connecting flights. Of course, we get the perfunctory, I’m sorry you have to spend the evening in the airport.
The entertainment did not work onboard. The boarding process needs to be announced and clear. It was confusing

Cons: "More counter people, less gate changes, better flow for boarding, knowledgeable staff"
Pros: "Once in the plane the crew was great."

Cons: "Almost 2 hr delay - put fuel in a wrong tank."
Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive"
Cons: "Gate confusion, boarding issues, company food policies"
Pros: "Lisa I. was one of the best flight attendants I have ever observed. She enjoys being on the airplane with people who need help, comfort, to complain about anything. She was all over the airplane and refused a tip when I tried to insist she accept it. She said, “I have been doing this for a long time, I am tipped by seeing passengers having a pleasant flight.” I had goosebumps and the two women to my left and right were also impressed by her professionalism. I pray that Lisa is working on my flight home!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing, even with 30 to 45 MPH winds, the plane was gentle. The passenger next to me was scared. Lisa said to let her know if she needed anything, the woman was fine the whole flight. Lisa came by with extra snacks and she smiled and said she was doing well!"
Cons: "The plane we needed for our flight arrived really late so our flight was then of course delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great."

Pros: "The airplane was clean and spacious"

Pros: "Easy boarding, flight on time, friendly creew"
Cons: "old plane with seat not confortable for a 3h flight"
Pros: "I received the survey for this flight before we even boarded lol. People’s online boarding passes had expired. Noted that it was “due to weather” weather is totally clear, haven’t seen a flake of snow, it’s just cold."
Pros: "Pilot had good sense of humor."
Cons: "Entertainment system in wife’s seat didn’t work"
Pros: "The only good thing about the flight was the crew."
Cons: "I’m surprised there weren't chickens and goats flying with us. The seats were worn out and ratty. There was no where to charge a phone or electronics. No in seat tv screen so was forced to watch the tiny overhead screen of terrible tv shows and mediocre movies. I prepaid for a seat a head of time which was given to someone else. Also quite a bit of heavy turbulence the entire flight. Not ideal for an 8 hr flight. I’m lucky I brought an external charger and some xanax. Never again"
Cons: "i wasnt able to select a seat when I checked in. they couldn't give me a better seat before bording and the fact that Im the one approaching then to have a seat selection, no one called my name."

Cons: "Lack of variety in food options during flight."

Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. There was no liquor or even a small snack provided. Minimum service by the flight crew. Most disappointed!"
Cons: "Seats are smaller than other airlines, terrible experience. I felt I was being squeezed the whole time"
Cons: "2 hour delay with very little communication as to why. Plane was way too big for a short domestic flight (boarding and departure took longer than the flight itself).

Pros: "Crew professional despite longest flight of my life"
Cons: "The personal screens weren’t working, not even the USB chargers! We knew right away upon boarding but crew likely lied to us telling us they would come on above 10,000ft. They never did, electrical problem apparently. Unacceptable on a transatlantic flight. To add insult to injury some teenager got separated from his parents in the confusing Rome terminal, likely in the bathroom. Was 30 minutes late boarding and because his suitcase was on board we couldn’t leave until they found him or his bag. We therefore missed our takeoff window and left 70 minutes late! So a 9 Hour flight with no infotainment or WiFi or charging became a 10 Hour flight from hell with terrible food to boot."

Cons: "Boarding was long. Waiting in the plain fir over an hour d’oies open a/c not working and waiting to decide how many cases of peppers they should load. At landing we were told we should be thankful cause it could of been much longer. Like it’s ok to be late. I’ve had better flights with you."
Pros: "The Air Transat crew and ground staff at the airports were friendly, considerate, helpful, smiling and excellent representatives of Air Transat. I am a large man, nearly 2 meters tall, with a history of two separate incidents of Deep Vein Thrombosis resulting in Pulmonary Embolisms (documented in a letter from my physician). My medical condition can be exacerbated by reduced circulation due to prolonged periods seated in a confined space, and in a worse case scenario, this can be life threatening. The ground staff and flight attendants listened to this concern, and found seating situations that allowed more leg room in the emergency exit aisle on the flight over from Montreal to Marseille. On the way back, the flight attendants gave that emergency row to other passengers (allowing me to have the three seats behind the emergency row seats, albeit with les leg room, but room to spread out and move my legs). Very kind! and attentive! Food was good, and the offers of food and drink were frequently made."
Cons: "Like all planes, I find the seating is too tight for anyone over average size. That said, I think Air Transat's seating is a bit more generous that other airlines."
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Pros: "We had a issue at boarding and nobody could help Nobody is in charge, they use this technique to avoid helping anyone. You go from manager to manager and they claim tht the person who could have helped is not here and you can t reach her on the phone either So they didn t help us! Pathetic technique. After the scandal in Ottawa. I am not surprised this airline has such a bad reputation. I don t recommend it. Also blankets and headsets cost 9 dollars each. Thanks for putting strong AC!!!"
Pros: "I already commended your crew member Trieste, for her outstanding help and consideration."
Cons: "2 hours delay. Not much food. No earphones for free."
Pros: "The Check in staff was very helpful, professional and friendly. Cabin crew very friendly. Food is good."
Cons: "No entertainment. The tv was not seen properly from my seat. I had 7 hrs with no entertainment. One of the toilets was not working. The other needed the door to be repaired."
Pros: "Good service!"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude (young brunette Quebecoise). She really needs a lesson in customer service when she represents a company as reputable as Air Transit."
Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful, and when we ran into problems they were confident and professional."
Cons: "The plane was an old Airbus 310 with no entertainment systems in the seat backs. Instead, it was equipped with the old-style system where everybody watches the movies on a few screens. The choice of movies was poor: the "feature film" was a nature documentary made by Disney where they gave the animals names and talked about their feelings. The food on the flight was awful. We were told there would be be a choice of chicken, beef, or vegetarian noodles. But apparently there were only 5 chicken meals placed on the plane, so the only non-veg option was the beef. This consisted of 3 small pieces of beef in a gravy, and a pile of mashed potatoes with an unfamiliar texture. It was also oozing some sort of orange fat. Not very appetizing. Due to weather, the flight was unable to land in Montreal, and had to be diverted to Plattsburgh, NY. I don't blame Air Transat for this. We sat on the tarmac for 2.5 hours in Plattsburgh, but at least we had air conditioning, and the crew served us water. (This is better than the planes that were diverted to Ottawa that day.) We were assured by the crew that, while we surely missed our connections (to Toronto in my case), the Air Transat agents were well aware of the situation, and they would rebook us and we would arrive home that night. Upon arrival in Montreal, nobody from Air Transat seemed aware of the situation. I was with ~50 other passengers trying to get to Toronto, and the agents had no idea what to do. They sent us to a gate, and told us there was a flight leaving at 9 pm. (The flight was originally scheduled for 5:45, but, again, I don't blame them for the weather.) When we got to the gate at 8:45, there were no Air Transat agents anywhere. Passengers became agitated, and we tried looking for Air Transat agents at other gates, again with no luck. Some passengers even tried calling the Air Transat call center, but they couldn't get through. There was one Air Transat employee present, but when she saw the group of 50 of us, she hid behind the door to the jetway. (She said she was off duty.) By 9:30, some agents arrived. They were just as confused as us about the flight, and did not know what was going on. In particular, they thought there should be a flight crew present, but they couldn't find any. Eventually, at 10 pm, they announced that the plane would be leaving at 12:30 am for Toronto. Restaurants were closed at this point, of course, but at least a bar was open. By 1:30 am we eventually departed, after waiting for passengers to arrive from Ottawa. I have never seen so many sleeping people on a plane before it even took off. Total transit time from when I boarded in Barcelona to landing in Toronto was 20 hours."
Pros: "Entertainment, movies etc."
Cons: "Cramped seat"
Pros: "Staff in Dublin airport were very helpful helped me with my ETA very pleasant and efficient"
Cons: "Very very disappointed and angered at how our flight was handled after being delayed at no fault of my own my outbound flight was delayed from Dublin we were told our connecting flight would be organized and waiting for us. Upon arrival I was told I had 30mins until my connecting flight took off, stressed, tired and emotional I rushed through the airport and asked a member of staff to help me. This man was helpful he took me past the while queue and took me to the check in desk and told me I would be served asap. This is where my trip took a turn for the worst. Bare in mind I had been awake for 18 hours I was tired and stressed, the lady at the check in desk was snappy, rude and unhelpful. She read my boarding card and told me I would not be getting on the flight, she wrote me a hotel card and a voucher for food and wasn't very helpful. I began to cry and explained my father was already in Toronto waiting for me and she said I would not be flying. Very upset I walked off and started to cry. A few minutes later a lady who I flew with ran over and told me the lady had read my boarding pass wrong and thought I was on the inbound Tel Aviv flight and had wrongly dismissed me, then I was taken to another desk where staff had no clue what time my flight was at even though they had a computer system in front of them. Very very poor communication between staff with little attention paid to my flying details. My case was then taken by staff and my boarding pass then when the staff finally worked out what flight I was going on they asked for my suitcase to which I replied you already took my case and put into onto the conveyor , all staff denied taking my case or boarding pass which lead me to become more stressed that my luggage would be lost in transit and added to my stressful situation. Finally a lady guided us to our gate for our flight without knowing whether we would make the flight or not. After running round numerous air transat gates we found the gate we were supposed to be at even though the screen said the flight was for nice in France. Totally confusing and frustrating! I had the worst experience this day and will definitely not be flying with air transat or recommending it to anyone after the total disorganising and lack of communication between staff who were unhelpful and added to my stress. Bathrooms were also disgraceful, very unclean dirty and messy, no toilet roll and bins were full and messy. My lunch option was no longer available and I had to eat something I didn't want ."
Pros: "Not individual screens on every seat... i am traveling with 2 young kids so they need some entertainment to keep them calm during a 4 hour flight. My kids are in the Kids club... no difference in whatsoever.... no free chips...no nothing.... I bought chocolates and they made me pay for. The cabin AC was way too cold my daughter was freezing. I asked a blanket for her they told me it was $11. 00 O said ok fine. They forgot me after 45 minutes she remembered and she felt bad so she gave the blanket for free."
Pros: "the aircraft was much more comfortable than my seat with WOW air. and the monitor with the entertainment was actually working (was not on WOW air) and I had ear phones which worked with it so I actually could watch it. They gave us free water twice while we were delayed. WOW air charged for their bottle of water!"
Cons: "Most passengers could not take advantage of the entertainment on board. The steward/stewardesses did not come around and offer ear phones even at a price. I pressed a call button to get some water for to take a pill... three times and no one came. I would have gone back to where they were seated and asked personally but the seat belt sign was on... I did not sense there was any tumbulence but who knows. I flew from Paris to Montreal with an hour and a half layover in Montreal so I can connect to a flight to Toronto. Not the airlines fault ... our flight from Lyon was delayed.. but they (WHO the Canadian government) insisted my baggage had to be collected from the Lyon flgiht by myself and re-checked in for the Toronto flight, and thus I had to race across the huge airport to do that. Then I had to go through customs and then security (line ups of about two hundred people and waits of about 20 minutes) . Then I was supposed to catch my connecting flgiht at Gate A67 ... that is the 67th gate of 68 gates at this terminal. By the time I got out of the security line i was hearing the ominous " final boarding call for Air Transat Flight 276 to Toronto"!!!! I am 62 year old semi-fit woman with two bags running the posted "8 minute walk: to that 67th Gate. I made it with three winded young people who similarly were begging the Air Transat staff not to take off without the others of us who were still in the security line but booked on that flght. They waited. Then we could not get clearnance to land in Toronto... and so... we were delayed going to Toronto to... and $30 in parking later... my son got me home. Surely the Montreal Airport needs and "express line" through customs and security for people needing to catch connecting flghts or any flght about to take off! Also the Airport should be providing a trolly or something for passengers who have to board planes in those gates so very far from the security entrance to A gate!!! i am happy to walk it when I was not time pressured but in situations like this one... running could cause someone in poorer health a heart attack."
Pros: "Got me here alive"
Cons: "Staff attitude below average, plane quality below average"
Pros: "Good efficient crew!"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Super new and clean planes. Crew extremely nice and the best entertainment package included!"
Pros: "Great crew, food and complimentary wine."
Cons: "Cramped seating, but not moreso than other airlines."
Pros: "The rest of the journey was fine, and the crew were great."
Cons: "I felt that the Rome airport manager on duty acted punitively towards me. I was admittedly trying to bring a carry on bag that was perhaps just slightly too large. But as soon as she saw me with it, she walked over the agent who was helping me and inserted herself in my check in process. This ended up in 35 minutes of phones between herself and U.S. an Canadian immigration, where I was forced to send travel documents for the whole of the 2014 and asked which countries I travelled to in 2004. She then told me my passport had been declared stolen but that I would be allowed to board my flight. I don't know what the story is, but I guarantee if I hadn't caught her eye by being a bit cheeky with my bag, none of those phone calls would have ensued. It was a deeply upsetting and unecessary experience and I plan to request a formal explanation of how the situation escalated so drastically."
Pros: "Great hostesses very friendly"
Cons: "Very poor meals and entertainment"
Cons: "1 hour delay while sitting inside the plane. No snack nothing to eat"
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag that all other airlines allow as carry on"
