Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "After flight was cancelled, rebooking was easy and quick on the app."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. flight attendants were grumpy. One of the tightest seats I've flown in economy. No room in overheads so I had to stuff my winter coat between my legs with my backpack under the seat in front of me. Was basically wedged into the seat with my stuff."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "it was easy to navigate ."
Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."
Cons: "Pasta on board is heavy, lighter meal option is preferred"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."
Cons: "Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal"
Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats Oddly shaped overhead bins, unable to put standard sized bags overhead, meanwhile they fit in planes of other major airline companies such as American Airlines. No food options, only sweet biscuit which contains soy and milk."
Cons: "The flight was delay for 3 hours and they only give us chips and water. They didn't explain well what was the problem. The plane was dirty inside and the seats werent comfortable at all, the plane was making weird noises. There is no window in the 11A Window Seat. Really really bad service at all."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Pros: "Clean plan and efficient boarding procedure."
Cons: "Horrible delay. Took off almost two hours post originally scheduled time."
Cons: "I could not check in on the kiosk and I had to go to two agents before they could find my reservation. The lines were extremely long and the customer service was poor."

Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "I love the new entertainment sysem"
Cons: "Only one service on such a long flight? Should have done a second beverage service."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Pros: "Nice FA's"
Cons: "We landed early and spent 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Really?"

Pros: "Friendly service. On-time."
Cons: "No tv's in airplane."
Pros: "How reassuring the previous crew was that everything would be fine"

Pros: "The plane was new and comfortable, the flight attendants were friendly and wonderful and the meal was pretty good but the abundance of snacks and drinks made a 9-hour flight very tolerable. I'd definitely fly Delta to Italy again."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Travel to Canada from the US is generally an unpleasant experience, probably because there are not many travelers. Not many connecting flights and long layovers. Plane is small, no exntertainment, no food, few beverage options."
Pros: "I definitely like the variety of entertainment that was given throughout the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant was so rude to others including myself. I'm not one to be to needy but when i was about to ask the lady if I can switch seats to the fair back where there was two empty seats she gladly let the other person but not me. She said no that if I wanted to sit back I needed to set with the other person. Our flight was from NYC to PR 5hour long and in between those hours she let a couple sit together on the other empty rows while I was feeling supper sick. Other passengers notice and had told me that they felt sorry for me. I was Embarressed. I was debating on venting on Twitter just yet and also on this review because what difference does it make. What matters the most is that we all got to our destination safely."
Cons: "Some passengers bring two or more big carry ons and the airline should police its own rules better."
Pros: "Efficiency of process."

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: "Check in folks in Panama"
Cons: "My stroller was lost while I was traveling to Panama and entire trip I was without stroller. No food was given to me as there are no vegetarian options. When I called 24 hours in advance, they say it is too late. Crew not very friendly. Overall not good experience and was Totally disappointed on my first trip with COPA."
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"

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."

Pros: "I have never bought a flight ticket with Copa airlines...."

Pros: "Terrible!!! 1.5 hour Walt to check in bag same with customs. Longest lines I've ever experienced."

Cons: "When we landed to lax, the crew should announce where our baggage claim is. It was different from what was texted, what was on the monitors. The location changed without announcement. After an hour, one agent said to go to another area to find my bag. 1 hr in baggage claim is excessive."
Cons: "We stay stuck in PVR"

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.

Pros: "i didn't like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed and everything else since boarding was a mess.

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Horrible smelly crampy cloth seats, awful food, they don't offer complementary wine and beer for international flights like other carriers, no tvs in the headrest. The flight crew works slower then I have ever observed in my over 200 flights. Took them 1hr 40min to serve what they called "dinner", Delta and others knocks it out in 30!!! And don't get thirsty, You'll die of dehydration before you get a drop of water. They treat ice like its gold. 2 cubes for each drink. If u ask for more u get one more cube. Lol.

Cons: "Was a bit of a pain when I wanted to simply get off the plane in Geneva since it would be shorter, but then the plane was late, but that can't be helped"
Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
Pros: "Some of the members of the crew were so nice"
Cons: "SFO to Montreal: no complimentary food; not even nuts. I was forced to check in my bag because it wouldn't fit in the tiny sizer."

Pros: "pilot was nice even though delay due to 2-day weekend"
Cons: "better snacks and more leg room :)"
Cons: "I ran to the gate from my previous flight, but it turned out this flight had been delayed. The flight boards and United app didn't show that though."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "United is the literal worst. Economy basic where you are forced to check and pay for your carry on?! Horrible service in the terminal, staff more interested in their phones than helping. Wifi didn’t work. I’m the future I will pay more and fly anyone else. Never making this mistake again."
Pros: "Pilot is polite Flight is on time I git in earlier flight than my scheduled one Ground crew at check in counter is quite pleasant"
Cons: "Air craft is quite old Wish it could be newer"
Cons: "I was flying with Air Canada. The UI for watching movies was not good, it had a hard time to respond to the inputs. It was also hard to move the videos forward to the part I needed. Plus, the audio wasn't working well with my own earphones."
Pros: "First Class was a rare treat for us, so we appreciated the hot towels, spacious seats and delicious food!"
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "It was an older airplane. For a long flight from Montreal to San Francisco, a plane with more room would be more humane. People were lined up for the bathrooms most of the trip since could not use the small first class bathroom. If one wanted a meal, it was one you had to pay for. Broken monitor"
Pros: "Love United’s service. Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."

Cons: "Air conditioning, I wanted an option for heat."
Pros: "The Rio de Janeiro international airport is very difficult to traverse. However, the airport staff was very helpful in directing me several times to the correct location."
Cons: "United needs a check-in kiosk located between the domestic arrivals section and the international connection hallway just before security. I had to walk to the complete length of the airport and back again, just to check-in. Other airlines, such as Delta, have a kiosk located just before the security entrance. The cabin temperature was absolutely freezing during the flight, and I am usually hot."
Pros: "Clean plane, comfy seats and friendly staff"
Cons: "All was good. Didn’t have any problems."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Travel plans will be impacted due to lost luggage"
Cons: "It was three hour deley in Newark Airport because the plain didn't arrive on time."
Cons: "Airplane was super cold. No extra blankets. Passengers freezing. Impossible to sleep."
Pros: "the comped hotel"
Cons: "Improper handling of situation. There was flight scheduled later, but CS agent kept jerking us around. By the time I reached the United counter, the next flight was full. My total flight time was 36 hours. I still can’t believe that the pilot was missing. Worse yet, the agent at the gate could have made things much easier instead of telling everyone that a pilot was on his way to the airport."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, plane was clean, seats were nice."
Cons: "Wish there were TVs on the back of chairs."
Pros: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Nice attendant, food OK, no delay."
Cons: "Internet costs"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing and flight attendant told us there was no way to control the heating the cooling to a comfortable temperature. It will continue to be too hot or too cold."
Cons: "There seemed to be no planning for this flight. 1. The boarding area was way too small for the number of passengers, causing a major blockage of the moving-walkway-exit in the area. 2. We didn't start boarding until the time the flight was scheduled to take off. 3. After boarding, it took FOREVER for catering to be loaded. They seemed to do it door-by-door rather than loading all sections of the plane at the same time. Why was this not done during the boarding delay. 4. After catering was finally done, and we were ready to push back, the Captain announced that they weren't sure if they put a cargo container in the right location on the place, so had to check that....another 20-minutes of delay. I experienced lengthy delays on both ends of this travel - both by United. I will most certainly look at alternatives for my next flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the assistance, the food and the movies"
Cons: "I liked every single bit of my experience."
Cons: "We star boarding 20 min late, after that the airplane was totally full i was separated from my family"
Pros: "Put us up in the hilton."
Cons: "Told us to run across the airport just to get there and they already shut the doors 20 minutes before the scheduled departure. had to miss another day of work..."
Cons: "They (united airlines) put my wife's luggage in the wrong flight and we are still waiting for it to arrive. It's already been 8 hrs since we landed and every time we call them, they're telling us it's scanned in a different city. Now she is without clothes and her necessities."
Pros: "Excellent attentive care."
Cons: "My first 5 hour long flight did not have a complimentary snack."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Had to pay to watch movie."
Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "Snack delicious"
Pros: "Flight wasn't that long. Experience was okay. Flight was full. Attendants did their job. Some were more polite and helpful than others."
Cons: "No request was made for the outbound flight which I want to comment about. At Dulles Airport, I checked in at the Brussels Airline counter, only to be told that since I was on a flight operated by United, then I had to go to the United Airlines counter to check in. At UA, I was handed a boarding pass which advised that my seat will be assigned at the gate. I saw on the monitor where the available seats were-1 window, the remainder middle row. I got the feeling that since I bought a ticket which cost less than what the other United Airlines customers paid for, then I was being relegated to seats that the other travelers didn't desire."
Pros: "Good price. Good service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count & cancelled around midnight. AWFUL!"
Pros: "Great smooth flight. Flight attendants very nice."
Pros: "Cabin crew were fantastic"
Pros: "Here's the situation- There are massive storms across the state, massive delays across the nation, and a tiny airport packed full of people. All the things needed to make a horrible flying day an even worse day for customer service. BUT the flight crew and terminal teams did an amazing job keeping things together and keeping guests happy. They communicated all the information they knew in a timely manner, and made sure to correct any connections that needed to be processed before the plan landed. Also they kept their calm as people flipped out."
Cons: "I didn't lol the size of the white planes airport. That plan could hold about 150 people at best.... There was at least 600"
Pros: "crew was very friendly and patient."
Cons: "flight was delayed. also received text message that bag was on different and would be late. bag actually arrived as it should have, text message of delay was in error and caused confusion."
Cons: "The plane was tiny and the seats were tiny. Could not carry on a bag and it took a long time to get the bag back from having been gate checked."

Pros: "Seats we okay, and head rest was comfy"
Cons: "Flight attendants not the friendliest..."
Cons: "The landing in San Antonio was the scariest of my life. I honestly thought we were going to crash."
Cons: "There was food on my seat and a cell phone from the flight attendant."
