Pros: "The crew was great. I experienced great hospitality."
Cons: "The quality of meal."
Pros: "Crew was amazing.Premium economy seats were superb. Food was also good."
Pros: "Loved the Kabuki actors used for safety instructional video - stay for the ending credits!"
Cons: "Boarding felt like a standing cattle call. Some - not all - stews acted as though they were insulted to have to provide food and beverage service, as though they were too tired and/or impatient to deal w/ economy class."
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "If flight cost less lol"
Cons: "my original connection time or lay by was reduced to 50min. Didn’t get an express passage through security check point and my gate on this fateful day was 58A the furthest away after security check - so a long run for me and just made it to the queue 10min to flight"
Pros: "The crew was excellent & seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better boarding procedures. JAL is better."
Pros: "the ANA folks at the departure check-in went out of their way to get me on my flight. You see, I got to the airport right before boarding. Their response? They literally escorted me through security, waited for me at the immigration checkpoint, and brought me to the boarding gate! I love ANA! :)"
Pros: "Their friendliness And care for the passengers"
Cons: "i can not think of anything."
Pros: "Overall the flight met expectations for service, comfort and food."
Cons: "Variety of entertainment (or lack of), and the flight being continuously delayed. Even though the flight ended up departing just an hour later than initially scheduled, I would rather receive one notification for a 1-hour delay, than four notifications for 15-minute delays."
Pros: "Perhaps the most courteous airline I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Fellow passenger didn't stay in his space , would prefer flight attendant to inform kindly"
Pros: "- Friendly staff. - Excellent service and boarding easiness. - Kayak's excellent price."

Cons: "No available slippers for economy class. I’m a star alliance gold and other star alliance airlines member provide the said amenity."
Pros: "Nice 777 plane, good snack"
Pros: "The seat, service and food..all is great as always."

Cons: "The food was not as good as in my previous flights."
Pros: "Big TV screen. Food."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."
Pros: "Timely departure/arrival, great flight crew, good food, excellent ride, clean cabin."
Pros: "Seats and service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful, I was having a sore throats and asked for a candy if possible, the crew answered immediately yes and came back with throat candies that I exactly wished for."
Cons: "The flight was having pretty bad turbulence but there was no explanation from the pilot or anything. Also I also took the same flight on my way to Mexico from Tokyo about 10 days ago but there was better food and beverage sevice."
Pros: "the service were fantastic. the flight attendants were very courteous; offering food & snacks and drinks non-stopped. overall, the services offered were great."
Cons: "the temperature inside was overwhelmingly hot made it impossible to relax. in a crowded airplane, such environment is perfect for customers to acquire upper respiratory infection once they have to share the air with others. please adjust the air temperature. thanks"

Cons: "crew not able to understand English"

Cons: "Could not fall asleep as the chair would not recline enough"
Pros: "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."

Cons: "poor movie selection. slow cleanup after meal (more than 1 hr)."
Pros: "ANA service is always great. Always my first choice."

Pros: "Food was good but not on every segment. Unlike many other airlines, ANA ticket counter team was very good. Japanese cabin crew etiquette & respectfulness are appreciated."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Narita has poor general facilities overall. Therefore ANA should offer a discounted lounge facility for passengers with more than 4 hours transit. (I read that lounge food is surprisingly bad. I used the United lounge instead.)"

Pros: "Overall everything was good... Good food, comfortable and new plane"
Pros: "No delay in schedule"
Cons: "expect more movie variety"
Pros: "The food was amazing - they had no right to make food that good. I really was blown away."

Pros: "The crew is so nice............and cute too."
Cons: "The temp inside was about 80 degrees........yet, the Asian people seemed to all be freezing....... I was sweating...........almost no snacks or drinks between meals. The meal choices were all Japanese style food."

Cons: "Nothing really, had a good experience"

Cons: "Loved the overall experience. I’ve been in many other airlines and the level of professionalism on this flight surpasses the current popular airlines."
Pros: "Thought they screwed up twice, the airline had great customer service and tried their best to give me a good itinerary once I called them back. With the lost luggage, they ultimately delivered my bag to the hotel I was staying at. On my return flight I flew business class. They did a great job all around."
Cons: "I booked a direct flight from JFK (NYC) to Cartagena (Colombia) and a few days out from my flight I got a notification from AVIANCA that my itinerary had changed from a 5 hr trip to a 24hr trip with not one but two 8-hour layovers before reaching my destination the next day! I called the Airline and they set me up with a new flight, that was not direct, with a single layover. Once I got to my final destination, I came to find that my checked bag had been left at my previous layover."

Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."

Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Pros: "Everything was great, flight attendants were awesome"
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."

Cons: "Temperature was too cold"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "Smooth, easy, still long"
Cons: "Still long"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Que respeten los horarios de vuelos."

Cons: "Did not receive any service"
Pros: "The flight was only an hour and a half yet we weee given a hot meal, a snack, and complimentary (alcoholic) beverages. Boarding was organized and timely, the crew was friendly. Couldn’t have asked for more. Smoothest flight experience I’ve had in a while."
Pros: "Nice wide seat."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline much at all. Food only so so."
Pros: "First time on this airline. Friendly crew and good entertainment for a long flight."

Cons: "Flight was diverted to Guayaquil. Missed my connection to Manta."
Pros: "Excellent and friendly service, comfortable flight, efficient check in, baggage delivered in less than 15 minutes after landing"
Cons: "Everything was good. I don't have any suggestions for improvements."
Pros: "I slept through the entire trip."
Pros: "Even on this short flight, a snack was offered. Flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "If I have to name something, it was a less new plane without personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "No entertainment at all"
Cons: "Didn't allow me to board since less than 1 hour before flight (due to late connection on other carrier). Tried to gouge me for another $1500 to catch next flight. Awful customer service. Buy travel insurance if using copa! Expensive lesson"
Pros: "This was a nice experience for a fairly typical airline. Meaning, not Emirates, Qantas, or the others that are supposed to be top-notch. To be fair, I haven't flown them, I'm just thinking of things I've heard and read. The seat was fine and typical as far as leg room and reclining goes. The food was what you'd expect on an airline (it was fine, but I don't despise airline food). The crew though, was wonderful. Really. Friendly, welcoming...I bothered one attendant a couple times for more water as I was very thirsty, and then asked for a beer after the beverage service was over. Often flight attendants will act as if you're demanding a foot massage or something, but this particular guy was very nice. All of the crew that I interacted with was just lovely."
Cons: "A flight of this duration should really have wifi access."
Pros: "Flight attendants wonderful. Very accommodating no language barrier"
Cons: "Great experience"
Cons: "atención de azafatas no fue amable para vuelos de larga duración debería instalarse mas TV"

Cons: "They weren't able to get my traveling companion and I seats next to each other."
Pros: "Stores in Panama"
Cons: "When you get into Panama in the airport they control people in a rude way. (specially when we were from Panama to the USA. They make questions and review the luggage not friendly."
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."
Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."
Cons: "They do not have a way to order vegetarian food on their website so I did not eat on either flight, which was really frustrating."
Pros: "Smooth trip no delays of any kind. The airlines used a newer plane and each seat had its only tv for watching your own movie or play some games, that will always be a big plus for me. Also they provided snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Personal y abordaje"
Cons: "Asientos incómodos comida mala entretenimiento malo"
Pros: "After I missed my flight I was greatly helped by a transfer agent named, Ana Raquel. She did everything she could to help me as they arranged to get me on the next flight and as I waited and boarded. The other agent serving at that same desk also helped. I am sorry I did not get her name. No one could have been nicer than Ana was to me."
Cons: "When I arrived in Panama my boarding pass said the flight from Panama to Quito was leaving from Gate 20. I checked with the departure information and did not see Quito on the list. I made the mistake of not checking the time. And therefore waited and waited at gate 20 for the flight to Panama which by that time I had missed. And saw later that the gate had been changed at the last to Gate 24. I thought it would have been nice if Copa could have posted the change at Gate 20 . I would not have missed the flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and professional. I have always loved flying on Copa."
Pros: "I love that food was included in our ticket price!"
Cons: "No announcements when boarding. The speaker system was not used once"
Cons: "We flew from Quito to Cuenca, Ecuador and after circling the city several times the pilot announced we were going back to Quito in order to deal with an equipment issue. I appreciate the move from a safety standpoint, the passengers were given no information about WHY we were going back or how long it would take."
Cons: "Our flight was in two (2) segments. One from Santiago, Chile to Panama City, Panama and, two from Panama City, Panama to Boston, MA USA. Our flight from Panama City, Panama to Boston, MA USA was cancelled due to snow. Not the Copa fault; however, rebooking the flight from Santiago back through Panama to Boston was very difficult even though we call the day prior after noticing the cancelled flight on the Copa website. We were successful; however, it took multiple calls and multiple delays on hold to make it happen. No e-mail confirmation was ever received; however, we were able to confirm the flight via the website. We were also unable to confirm the flight status on the website. Maybe it was a special flight or something, but from the customers view, it was discomforting."
Pros: "Todo estuvo perfecto !"
Pros: "Great food, great crew assistant"
Pros: "Easy and fast connections. Flight on time.great"
Pros: "After snow delayed departure from Newark, we have made it as far as Panama City, Panama. Our bags, apparently, are in Quito, Equador! Such fun!"
Cons: "Overbooking, they also left my baggage and it´s lost until now!"
Pros: "At take off the plain a bird hit the wing. Crew gave feedback on what they knew. They remain calmed and try to share that feelings of everything will be alright."
Cons: "It took too long to get the flight changes. Staff was taking names of volunteers that wanted to stay, and for those who wanted to leave in the next flight. This could be more efficient by making groups--depending on the options. And try to keep more staff in the floor to help the passengers to direct them in the right option. We had only four people trying to do all."
Cons: "My baggage did not arrive in Quito until 2.5 days later. Apparently it did not leave Panama with my flight."
Pros: "Nice crew, friendly. Plenty room on flight as it not booked full. Flight left on time"
Cons: "Boarding was slow but they had increased number of wheelchair clients. Not their fault but was a known so the process could have been started earlier."

Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "We were greeted by cookies upon entering the flight. I liked this experience. for a 45min flight everything else was as expected."
Cons: "having to climb up 6 stories with carry on luggage isn't fun. Some elderly people were struggling, caused everyone to slow down. I'd have taken the elevator if I had known we had to walk all the way up. Regardless, my expectation of German airports and German engineering is high, but things we take granted in US like escalators are a luxury in Germany and clear directions are missing... on the oncoming flight we had to wait for a door to be unlocked while everyone was stuck in the aisle way and stairs.."

Cons: "Food options and space"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food is above average on economy, free wine and beer."
Cons: "Star Alliance Premier members cannot get a Premium Economy without paying."
Pros: "Entertainet options were very good and very diverse."
Cons: "For an international flight the plane was quite tight in terms if leg room and aisle space."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of the better airlines, especially when flying to Germany. They offer a very good service in the economy class which includes free wine (and not only sodas) and a large selection of free newspapers which I value a lot. Newspapers are much more interesting to read than watching movies in my personal opinion. Overall, when aboard Lufthansa, one does not have the feeling of cheapness seen so often on competing airlines. A few years ago, when flying from San Diego to New York, a 5 hour flight on a major US carrier, passengers were not even offered a free drink. Everything had to be paid for. In comparison, all food and all drinks are free on Lufthansa which includes not only wine but also Baileys (a sweet liquor). Given the excellent service, ticket prices charged by Lufthansa are a bargain even if at a small premium over the competition."
