Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day.

Cons: "Flying into blizzards suck, don’t do it"

Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Cons: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."

To hot befor the flight departure. And the food is very poor quality, the bread doesn’t test fresh.

Pros: "Sears we’re comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes for no reason"
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS OK"
Cons: "PERFECT FLY"

Pros: "Crew were trying but non of them spoke English"
Cons: "I have never had such a terrible experience like this one"
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding was relatively easy and smooth. Seemed to be enough overhead storage."
Cons: "Seats are super small, as are meals. 2 bathrooms for 100 passengers. If you have an older aerobus be prepared for shared screens and tops 1 movie in a 4.5hr flight. Could use more beverages."
Pros: "Premier class services."
Cons: "entertainment and toilet cleanest."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and accomodating."
Cons: "Not sure if that was an older plane or what, have travelled with COPA lots of time before, but this time around the chairs were specially uncomfortable (didn’t even reclined) only worse chair i’ve seated on a plane has beeb on spirit (which is a bargain airline, so unlike copa)"
Pros: "on time departure, amicable crew."

Cons: "None entertainment system"
Pros: "Wonderful service, and also gave me a upgrade"
Pros: "Crew was nice, seat was comfortable, food was good"

Pros: "Seats were very uncomfortable and no option for wifi. Boarding process seemed a bit haphazard."
Cons: "Honesty, everything. Just seemed like no one knew what they were doing,"
Pros: "Our flight got delayed due to freezing rain. The crew was so friendly and accomodating and answered any questions passengers had about the flight. Agents were waiting for us to further accommodate passengers with missed connecting flights. The process was so easy and effortless. Thank you Copa!!"
Cons: "One of my best travel experiences!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Food options ran out twice and it tasted terrible. Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Time correctly"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "If you get in line early, there might be overhead bin space."
Cons: "Seats are awful. FAs don't want to speak slowly so you can understand them or English, basically saying they don't care. Every Copa flight I have taken is a late departure."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "food and entertainment, check-in in Rio de Janeiro was awful."
Pros: "The flight attendants where and are amazing.. the service was the best. Highly recommend to fly with “copa”"
Cons: "I don’t think I did not like anything to be honest."
Cons: "There was a prolonged delay on arrival in Panama, as the gate was apparently in use. They set up stairs (on the runway?) and they transported us by bus to the airport. On the connecting flight to Guatemala, they began boarding an hour before departure, only to wait on a bus to be taken to the aircraft. Apparently the airline doesn't only double book seats on flights, but on Gates on arrival and departure as well? Aside from this particular gripe, the crews were pleasant and the airfare was a relative bargain, so all in all not a bad option IMO."
Pros: "I liked entertainment"
Cons: "Overall was a bad experience food was horrible and crew was not to standards"
Pros: "Convenient times."
Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Pros: "The flight from Rio to Panama 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: "Nice selection of movies."
Cons: "Everything else was wrong with this flight. It was delayed for almost three hours with no explanation even though passengers were asking about the reasons. All our questions were simply ignored. They gave us coupons for food for ten dollars. Nothing can be bought with that money. And they didn’t have coupons for everyone so had to wait a lot until they brought all the coupons. Boarding was a nightmare. Crew couldn’t care less. A woman refused to seat far from her “kids” (about 9 and 14) and flight attendants didn’t do anything ti stop the woman from blocking the aisle. We were already almost three hours late. Overall the worst experience."
Pros: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Cons: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Pros: "I had a very comfortable space for my legs."
Pros: "All service is good"
Cons: "I don’t have problem"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Very long que at LAX. We were in a que for more than two hours and we thought we are going to miss our flight. Staff was't particularly helpful. Finally we have to run, really run to board, there was a long que for security check and finally we were so breathless when we boreded . A harrowing experience"
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: "Tv's and that there were 2 open seats next to me."
Cons: "Food is atrocious."
Pros: "Went by quick, great staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I bought a return ticket from Panama City to Rio on Kayak and was not notified that a Yellow Fever shot was necessary for re-entry to Panama. Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."
Pros: "The food was ok"
Cons: "Part of the crew was a little rude, entertainment options were poor, the counter at Lima to check in the baggages opened late"
Cons: "Nothing to entertain ourselves with"
Pros: "All it is fine"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "All aspects were good"
Cons: "Too much complain whit my carry on"
Cons: "Only the spaghetti was edible and the salad only had 2 ingredients. Also would appreciate changing up the entertainment options from leaving my destination to going to it."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "You really couldnt do a lot of stuff on the plane. The seats couldn't be put back, your hand bags had to be on the floor."
Pros: "Zero delay from Tampa to Panama"
Cons: "The delay from Panama to CR but due of the weather . The food was not good at all."
Pros: "Good seats, entertainment, crew, flying time and on schedule. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Food was ok I'm sure but I wish they had vegetarian options."
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"
Cons: "The crew, and the plane is very old not fit, for a such,long flight"
Pros: "I liked the crew service, timing, prefesionalism!!"
Cons: "Food is not too good, I don't eat pork and seafood (cause allergies) and he the attendant couldn't tell me if the sausage was pork or beef. They need to be informed since an emergency could happen in the flight. Everything else, perfect."
Pros: "Food, crew."
Cons: "The plane went to land in Barranquilla but came to land too quickly and once he touched down he had to accelerate and take off again. Very uncomfortable 20 minutes circling without an announcement."
Pros: "Space between seats"
Cons: "Staff was rude and condescending to many passengers. Never smiled, and served the food and beverages with a bad attitude. Nothing else makes an experience worse in my opinion as a bad attitude. Both our flights were bad in this respect, however it seemed a little better on the return."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"
Cons: "Always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef."
Pros: "The confort and food!."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants that made noise taking her luggage from the bin case"
Pros: "I liked absolutly nothing!"
Cons: "I was not even allowed to board the flight because of not having my yellow fever vaccine document. The reps were rude to me, and were not the least bit helpful. I left the Galapagos a day earlier than scheduled to make this flight. I wish I had never booked this flight, it does not seem like I will even be reimbursed for it. I asked them to give me a document or anything as proof that I was denied on flight because my credit card company requested it, but they rudely refused."

I have one comment for this trip, sardine, pandemic and everything, and plane was maxed. It was horrible. Staff was great but, this was horrible.

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I will never fly to Europe with anyone else. No joke. Best flying expierence ever."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. From start to finish great time."
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Cons: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."
Pros: "There wasn’t anything to highlight as good. On this trip except LHR was organized and clean. The boarding was a free for all after the elderly and young had been boarded footstep as they should."
Cons: "The ground staff were rude and officious"
Cons: "- The extra baggage fees were 5 times higher than the announced on the website which caused a lot of troubles. - The booked special meals (halal) were too spicy and not proper for children at all ( we just wanted normal meals without non-halal ingredients. - No basic medications on the first flight."
Pros: "Just about brand new Airbus airplane, very nice! Everything worked, seats reasonably comfortable for a long flight. Boarding worked well by area of the plane, friendly crew."
Pros: "It was nice trip and comfortable"
Cons: "Big and unjustified dekay"
Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "Luggage lost"
Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my suitcase...."
Pros: "The food was better than average. Portions were good and it was tasty. Movie selection was also great and included many recent releases. They provided a hot towel service bedorw and after meals which I loved."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sno excuse for delaying a flight due to paperwork. The rescheduling was chaotic"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Packed flight. LH seats are narrow and the front porch is not extensible enough. Hard to place books and newspapers. Film selection so so."
Pros: "The fact that I could have upgraded to premium economy. The space available in economy."
Cons: "The length of the flight but it is what it is. I couldn't upgrade to premium economy before arriving at the airport because of this being a code share flight with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Flight was good, comfort was good. Crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa flights is getting worse and worse."
Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pros: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"
Cons: "flight crew hit my chair all the time with the troller. Bought the places with bigger space on the legs, that was true, but was dissapointed with the type of chair that is totally closed at the sides, with no scape room for the legs laterally."
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."
Pros: "Air Canada could learn a few things from you - ie, the incredible impact of providing free food and excellence customer service at the checkout and gates."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by the leg room for economy class--albeit I'm of small stature"
Cons: "Being on-board at the gate for an hour, due to a technical issue not meeting flight captain expectation"
Pros: "Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive in Naples with us. We heard nothing from Lufthansa despite making numerous attempts to email and call the airline. Our hotel tried to call as well to see if someone could at least tell us if and when our luggage might arrive.We had to go out and buy clothes and personal items. It was a terrible way to start a holiday."
Pros: "I liked professionalisam of the flight crew from the start till the end of the flight. They were always nice and ready to serve on 10 hours flight."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Best trip and crew that i ever had"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Pros: "Seats were decent 36A, entertainment was very good, also paid full r WiFi access which made a 10 hour flight more bearable. Food was ok, nothing special."
Cons: "huge plane, no space. painful."
Cons: "Too many controls during boarding"
Pros: "Taking off was good"
Cons: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Very bad customer experience, the seat are very uncomfortable, and they stole money from my hand bag after sending it to the plane cargo"
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Cons: "No boarding lines. Boarded late. I was not given enough time from my arriving flight. I had to spring the length of the airport and up and down stairs as the elevators had long lines. Maybe it was good it boarded late or I wouldn't have made it."
Cons: "Ticket written on Air Canada but Lufthansa was carrier. Not possible to check-in on line leaving very few choices for seating. Tried to check-in on Sunday for Monday flight -- system errors resulted and phone number provided by system only works M-Sat. My initial leg was on Iberia and they could not check me in for entire flight. Major scramble in Frankfort to resolve issues. Never again!"
Pros: "The crew was especially cheerful and helpful. The food was surprisingly good for airline food. I have always had a good experience on Lufthansa and this trip was no exception."
Cons: "Some of the movie choices were a little dated."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "crew was very nice engaging. shopping at Munich airport was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline. I changed seats with my sister mid flight so I could sleep."
Pros: "Excellent service, great airplane, and a high level of professionalism on the part of all Lufthansa crew members. I felt pampered."
Cons: "I was in the next to last row in economy class. The person ahead of me put his seat back as far as it would go. that is his right. Behind me were two friends traveling with me. I doubt if their seats reclined (the last row) so I did not attempt to recline my seat. As a result I was a true "sardine". There was so little space between my face and the seat back ahead of me I could not look at the video screen, which was positioned at an angle when the seat was back. I just closed my eyes and let it pass. Economy plus next time? I have long legs."
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Boarding could has been smoother."

They served food even late for people who wanted to eat

Need certificate yellow fevor we dont know this,boarding impossible

Clean and “new plane” compared to my preview’s experiene. Thank ypu

Cons: "They should be on time but we left 30 minutes later."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"
Pros: "Can you guys call me at 661) 573-5194"
Cons: "661)573-5194"
Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Easy check in, and kindly personnal"
Cons: "Maybe consider some upgrades when its possible"
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Pros: "Very pleasant and professional crew."
Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."
Cons: "´"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Everithing else"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "N/a"

Cons: "old airplane"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No leg room even for the seats we paid extra"
Pros: "Puntual"
Cons: "Fo"
Cons: "I got a middle seat. Any other seat would’ve been better."
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"
Cons: "Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on"
Pros: "short flight, on time"
Cons: "Boarding was too long, longer than flight"
Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"
Pros: "Comfortalble seats with entertainment"
Pros: "The seats were typical airliner seats - good enough but more leg room would be nice. Our flights ran on time, and the crew was excellent. Our experience at the Lima Airport was much improved from our first stop there."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly at all times. Everything was clean an the flight atgandants were always near by incase you needed anything else."
Pros: "The crew really was amazing and very kind"
Cons: "The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was delay 2 hours and they tell us 3 hours before the dlight"
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Very tiny space No complementary food No complementary reserve seats in advance No complementary flight advance"
Cons: "My baggage was lost"
Cons: "The pilot arrived 1.5 hours late and my bag was out on another flight, further delaying me. Terrible."
Pros: "Smooth flight good staff"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"
Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"
Pros: "our flight back home went smoothly"
Cons: "our flight from LAX to Montevideo was delayed by 8 hours, making us miss our connections. We arrived day late. Our luggage a day after that. Our friends went back home on another LATAM flight from Buenos Aires that was delayed. They were flown for 2 days around South America before making to LAX."
Pros: "The aircraft room and comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Awesome service, friendly staff and the Dreamliners are amazing. Thanks LATAM and thanks Kayak ... Great fares."
Cons: "My flight to Lima was delayed therefore I would miss the connecting flight to LAX. I learned of the delay by overhearing a conversation the employee was having with another passenger. No announcement was made, no options were presented to help the passengers with connection find a solution until we started demanding a solution. This ordeal started at 9pm and we did not make it out of the airport till 1:50am to a hotel for a 6am pickup back to the airport to start the process all over again."
Pros: "The crew service is excellent: prompt, efficient, and friendly. The free streaming inflight entertainment to use on your smartphone, tablet or laptop is a very nice feature on a 3-hour plus flight. The food for sale onboard is tasty and fresh. In my experience most domestic flights operated by Latam are on time."
Cons: "Latam crams its single-aisle Airbus fleet with one or two rows of seats too many: the seat space is crammed. The exception are the first three rows and exit rows, for extra pay or free for elite passengers. The first three rows have power outlets -nice and useful to watch streaming movies without draining your smartphone battery."
Pros: "The service on board is very good.when you have a business customer service is almost everything."
Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No leg room, seats go back too far"
Pros: "El avión era un 787-9 en excelente estado y muy cómodo La tripulación muy amable"
Cons: "El snack era un croissant jamón-queso que venía casi congelado, malisimo"
Pros: "Overall I love the professionalism and customer service of LATAM. The interior lighting of the aircraft makes a big difference. The staff is always super polite and friendly. It's my favorite airline."
Cons: "On a 10 hour flight (LAX to Santiago Chile) they should offer more snacks and drinks for people to help themselves to in economy class. Other airlines have water and juice available I felt like I was bothering a crew member every time asked for a glass of water, when I could have just helped myself. Also, maybe have a few light snacks available. After a very light lunch, 8 and a half hours is a very long wait till breakfast!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delayed disembarking"
Pros: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
Cons: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"

Standard flight. Could be better by taking off and/or arriving at scheduled time.

Pros: "Crew was good and mostly attentive."
Cons: "Had to move seat three times because the audio/video didn’t work in my seat. Was very frustrating"
Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"
Cons: "Horrible experience!!"
Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Cons: "More seat room side to side"
Cons: "The attitude from the crw"
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Pros: "Crew was very experienced."
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."
Pros: "Crew was personable and proactive in settling families in and helping with luggage. Funny and helpful. Movie choices were great! We were early to gate."
Cons: "It was a very long check in process in Madrid, and 45 minutes more to gate. I think it may just be layout of Madrid airport, but I would suggest to anyone getting to airport a minimum of 3.5 hours before flight."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Pros: "Quick takeoff and landing. Very smooth ride and friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Had a 630am flight. Did curb side checkin so always quick when I do do that. The security checkpoint had NO priority line so that was inefficient. Good otherwise."
Pros: "Taking the exit door makes a difference in having enough leg room. Everyone was nice an helpful."
Pros: "I got to Boston safely and the pilot and attendants did their best jobs. Also my luggage arrived in a timely manner."
Cons: "Your seats are too small even for a relatively small person. You should hire more flight attendants so that they are more available to help customers. We should be fed on flights of 6 hours long. American treats us like chattel and make flying unappealing."
Pros: "Great boarding, crew and seating space"
Cons: "Bathroom line for some reason was always long. Entertainment via wifi was just ok. Older movies only. New movies on the tiny screens that come down every 4 rows or so."
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"
Cons: "Extremely old plane"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"
Cons: "Flight cancelled American Airlines aircraft old 30+ years No AC No entertainment"
Pros: "Exceptional customer service"
Cons: "No food no entertainment so that's the only reason I gave 1 star to those"
Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."
Cons: "Crew member had poor attitude. Not all just one seem to be having a bad day"
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
