Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"

Pros: "I liked most of the processes but only boarding process was complicated."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."

Cons: "I like everything."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."

Pros: "The people and service and food were all excellent. My only problem was missing the connecting flight. See comments on the right."
Cons: "The flight was late in leaving, so I missed my connecting flight and had to stay overnight in Instanbul. It would have been nice if they were more organized and could have postponed the flight, or made arrangements for those who were on a connecting flight to be driven over there quickly."
Cons: "The service was not good and the staff had to be called 10 times for one thing"
Pros: "The planes were clean. Ground staff was nice. I am comparing my in flight experience with emirates and qatar which may be unfair for Turkish. The flight was better than flying one of our domestic carriers like delta or united but not up to mark with emirates or qatar."
Cons: "The over all seat pitch was low and seemed very cramped for a long journey. Food was hit or miss. On two different legs of flight we had a good service from Ist to was but below average service from Bon to ist. Connection in ist airport was scary - too many flights arriving at one time, people lining up outside the airport mad literally pushing their way to get in. In today's tunultous time this seemed extremely unsafe as far as airport safety. I would not travel Turkish till they extend/ update ist airport which is supposed to happen in 2 years."
Cons: "Crew member wanted me to move my seat up so the passenger behind me can have more room. The person in front of me had his chair pushed all the way back, what the hell was the crew member thinking? I still did not move my chair and argued with the female crew. Crew members do not treat everyone equally. I asked for functioning pair of headphones and water, crew members never brought them to me. Responded by saying yes, BUT never brought it to me. I noticed crew members treated children and Turkish passengers first. I'm Chinese and flew Turkish airline- I felt the discrimination. Never traveling with Turkish airlines AGAIN."
Pros: "Food was great, wish gluten free had been an option!"
Cons: "The movie selection was excellent. However, were those movies pirated? They had unusual openings that made it appear they were non-copyrighted versions. Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Crew and food were quite good"
Cons: "Leg room was quite tight on plane the carry on bag limit was too restrictive at 8kg"
Pros: "The Turkish Airlines Boeing 777 was beautiful. And so was the cabin crew and the service they provided. Entertainment System was fantastic. TA puts U.S. airlines to shame."
Cons: "My connections in Istanbul (which is huge) were a little chaotic and stressful. Most flights seem to be deplaned are boarded using transit busses - didn't really care for that - but the international terminal was pretty spectacular. Though there weren't enough places/outlets to recharge electronic devices and finding free WiFi was tricky - finally found some in a nice little cafe! Overall, I'd rate IST 4 Stars outta 5..."
Cons: "Flight from Houston to Istanbul got delayed; Turkish Airlines representative confirmed that flight will catch up on time and I can reach my connecting flight on time, however changed my ticket for the connecting flight so I would leave Istanbul next day - without informing me about the change.Once I realized changed "date/time" in the ticket (VS what I booked) and complained about it, all Turkish Airline representatives were acting line they don't understand English...this is unacceptable. I ended up spending the night in the Airport."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, crew was helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "-No vegetarian options for meals -No personal TV to watch -No announcement made in English in Kabul airport"
Pros: "It was pretty short. 3 across in the middle rows is great, I wish all the flights had 3 seats in the middle."

Cons: "This was not a business class seating arrangement"
Pros: "Customers care, comfort, food"
Cons: "Small food yet so good"
Pros: "The price of my ticket to Israel from San Francisco was a steal. The crew, the service, the cleanliness are beyond anything I could have wished for."
Cons: "The food was not good, which surprised me because on my last flight with T.A., the food was absolutely delicious, the best plane food I had ever had. The T.V. In two different seats were not working. But the crew obliged until I found one that worked."
Pros: "Great service , staff and food ."
Cons: "If drinking a cocktail , I'd have to ring for service. Rude or wild children should be contained by airline staff and not done by local passengers."
Cons: "I didn't even go"
Pros: "Food and comfort for the price paid"
Cons: "Need more assistance during boarding in Dhaka/ DAC"
Pros: "Leg room was great"
Pros: "At Lisboa airport, I was checked in by Antonio. Most helpful checkin guy I've ever spoken to in my years of traveling. The food is always impressive (for airline food) and they give you a lot to drink. The last time I flew, there was an Autistic passenger throwing a fit and no one seemed to do anything. This time, a person was really upset with his companion on the flight and began screaming. The attendants helped calm him down and fixed the situation quickly. I guess last time they must've just let it happen because of the disability so there's not much they can do in that situation."
Cons: "Not a big ran of the Turkish Airport. Everything is pretty cheap for an airport though if you bring Turkish Lira. They tend to round the price up a bit if you pay in USD or Euro."
Pros: "It was a delayed flight due to fog and the crew passed out bottles of water as we waited. They helped put bags up and changed seats with little fuss. I will definitely fly them again."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, empty middle seats. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Snacks lacked variety and nutritional value."
Pros: "We normally get nothing better than a 717 on ATL-OKC, but the 737-800 was an incredible aircraft that made everything better owning to COVID 19 factors."
Cons: "DL needs to find a better way to manage food and drinks for FC during the COVID 19 era."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Service was quick!"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Pros: "The seats in Premium Economy are terribly uncomfortable and not worth the extra cost."
Cons: "The seats in Premium Economy are terribly uncomfortable and not worth the extra cost."
Pros: "Good crew, on time flight and departure."

Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Crew was very upbeat and helpful"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."
Pros: "Boarding was swift and cabin crew where attentive. Baggage drop was swift and luggage arrived quickly. Global entry at ATL was swift."
Cons: "delta security in the UK is an absolute farce. The security screening at LHR was long and understaffed"

Pros: "Crew were nice. Flight itself was short. Was quick boarding considering how busy the flight was"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seats were rigid and not very comfortable. No entertainment. Just basic really."
Pros: "Comfortable seat for a short trip."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "Nice upgrade since we didn’t have seats! Delta was a good flight but don’t ever wanna fly on Aeromexico again!"

Pros: "The crew was very warm and friendly."
Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment and communication."
Cons: "The online reservation had me pick seats for my family, those seats were emailed to me, then when I checked in and got our boarding passes, the seats had changed! Wouldn't have been a big deal, but I had already memorized our seats, so I looked like a moron when I insisted seats that were not ours anymore were ours!"
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: "Kenyatta Cheatham, our flight attendant was absolutely delightful! She made my flight enjoyable with her beautiful smile. She clearly loves her job!"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "We didn’t order food"
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "Flight was on time. And faster. I really enjoyed it."

Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"

Cons: "That an international flight didn't allow free luggage and that liquor purchased at the airport could not be consumed on the plane."
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "The staff was really nice and the pilot was very open and telling us the status of the "on hold" that we were experiencing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but there was nothing the airline could do because it was beyond their control."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Crew was stellar, very accommodating."
Cons: "Food was WAAAAY to salty. Needs some more flavor than just salt sad to say. Would be nice to be offered an entire can of soda not just a cup full of ice and a tiny amount of liquid. Charging for exit row swats? Cmon.... I'm 6 foot 5, why should a 5 foot 115lb woman get all the extra leg room but I canot?"
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient 2. Carry on bags were mandatorily checked at the gate when there was plenty of overhead bin space."
Pros: "Nice crew, normal seats, TV etc. They were very apologetic about the delays. They gave multiple updates and came around with water/snacks"
Cons: "The plane was delayed to wait for passengers from another flight. We waited for almost two hours. After that there was multiple technical difficulties- loading the bags, closing the door, refueling...the list goes on. We ended up taking off almost four hours late."
Pros: "I loved the service provided by the flight attendants as as well as the gate attendant who poked, prodded and did what he could to ensure our already late flight took off before it got stuck waiting for a gate at LAX. Thanks to him and the work of the crew, not only did the flight leave ASAP, our flight arrived early."
Cons: "I didn't like that the monitor for my seat was on the fritz and inoperable, which became a huge issue because of what follows. Making matters exponentially worse was the roughly 30-minute delay we experienced when we landed. Although our flight arrived at LAX early - in spite of the late departure from SLC - we were left waiting for a gate and were forced to wait for a gate. Inexplicably, the AC was turned off and the passengers all began to virtually cook while stuck in our seats. Also, due to another asinine snafu (the grounds crew didn't push a flight far out enough and blocked our plane along with eight others, which delayed our flight further. Adding insult to injury, my baggage was over 30 minutes late, too."
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "Good entertainment system with movies and games"
Cons: "No fault of Delta's but we were delayed on the runway for over an hour and we're an hour late. I had to move seats twice the first time because the video screen was freezing up and the second time because it stopped working the third seat was good though. The airplane food was typically horrid."
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Cons: "Don’t be late"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"

Cons: "Everything was very good."
Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"

Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"
Cons: "I wish there was WiFi"
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."

Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Pros: "Everything OK"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Pros: "All was excellent"
Cons: "missed the connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew was helpful - hung my jacket up in the wardrobe so it doesn’t get wrinkled. Boarding and luggage arrival were very quick - good service by LOT."
Cons: "My entertainment stopped working mid flight. There was someone sitting behind me who was heavier and I was asked not to let my seat back. I was provided no compensation for this discomfort."
Pros: "The crew was great, but my seat wasn’t that comfortable."
Cons: "I would probably like them to be on time because I almost missed my connecting flight"
Cons: "flight was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "The aircraft."
Cons: "First and last time on LOT!Boarding and flight crew rude, unhelpful. Flight late, no communication, no info at the gate. No standard communication, no info from the pilot during the flight. When the crew spoke in english or polish it was unclear. No help no info with connecting flight, missed it!"
Pros: "First of all, we had to line up in a very long que when arriving from Zagbreb. Then we had to wait very long for the bus to take us to the plane. Finally, we had to wait for almost 30 minutes ON the bus before we could enter the plane."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "We had to line up in a very long que when arriving from Zagreb. It took too long."
Cons: "The crew was very nice"
Pros: "Very well organized airport, very easy to get to the gate for transfer."
Cons: "Seat layout"
Cons: "Very poor English for rhe crew. Not all of us speak Polish. Unpleasant crew, like they are doing you a favor."
Cons: "1h 15' delayed boarding"
Pros: "полет был хороший, спасибо!"
Cons: "всё было хорошо!"
Pros: "Movie selection, games, food, dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Legroom, seat comfort"
Cons: "need to move away from stereo type attire and serve the customer"
Cons: "Very Intensive and very cold ventilation!"
Cons: "They kept changing departure time from Warsaw to Lviv , and totally we were stocked at airport for 4 hours. Lot didn't provide any drink or food, and also they didn't give us any information about our flight, they just ignored us. We were very frustrated, our kids were hungry and thirsty but nobody from LOT company didn't care about it. They even didn't say "sorry " . I will not recommend this airline to my friends or to somebody else, just be careful with this airline."
Cons: "Because LOT flight from Lviv was late we did not make the connecting flight to New York and had to spend the night in Warsaw."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours and there was no communication at all. Our questions were ignored."
Cons: "Horrible aircraft (DeHavilland), very uncomfortable. A lot of very young children, their parents were playing some movies for them on phones and tablets. Crew didn't even react on that. Many people were just frustrated with that situation, but Crew didn't even want to discuss it. One of the worst flights ever. It was a charter level, not a regular airline. Never again."
Pros: "Business Class on LOT Flight No. 21 from Warsaw to Los Angeles is excellent! The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a beautiful plane and the Business Class seats are very comfortable. The food was pretty good and the flight attendants were extremely nice!"
Cons: "There was a two and a half hour delay for technical problems for our flight from Warsaw to Los Angeles on Tuesday July 24, 2018. There had been a two-hour delay for my flight in from Warsaw to Moscow, also for technical problems, on Friday July 13, 2018. Obviously, LOT needs to insure its planes are safe, but it needs to do so sufficiently in advance of take-off so that its passengers are not inconvenienced by lengthy delays."
Pros: "We liked the flights that we got switched to on Lufthansa."
Cons: "We checked in the night before and got confirmations by email and text. When we got to the airport and the flight was canceled, they said that they did not have our contact information!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I lost my connection to NY, I had to get rescheduled flight for day after so I didn't arrive to NY on Sunday but on Monday."
Pros: "The flight starts 2,5 hours later."
Pros: "Food and flight on time"
Pros: "Keeping announcements to minimum hence allowing for silence and sleep was great. Personally, being served a meal around midnight seems unnecessary. My preference would be for a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "Your crew manager was being very arrogant.. No tolerance at all"
Pros: "The landing wasgood"
Cons: "After the plane landed had to sit an hour in the plane cause of gate clearance . I had a connection flight I almost missed. After 9 hours travelling it was extremely stressful . The wasn working for the lady next to me ."
Pros: "Flight was an hour and a half delayed. Usually I love LOT, but the delay made everything worse when I just wanted to get home"
Cons: "I don’t like to seat next to toddlers. They should have special place, separate area just for families with kids, fare on the end of corridor. Noice , activities, banging and smelling, not pleasant and not confortable for what I paid. My comfort of flight with LOT was completely ruined this time."
Pros: "The legs room"
Cons: "The food was bad"
Cons: "Shitty service on board"
Pros: "All the rest"
Cons: "I bought economy ticket, yet I had to pay extra for my suitcase"
Pros: "Flights ran on time."
Cons: "Slow cue at check-in. Boarding gate miles from Security, 25mim walk. Plane aged. No food, tea in a flimsy paper cup. No entertainment."
Pros: "Safe and clean plane"
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed with very little communication about what was going on. When it did come time to board, they boarded from the rear of the plane, but people with seats in the front seats crowded in front of the boarding area making it nearly impossible for those in the rear seats to get through. Gate staff did not manage this well. And, I still don't understand why people do not understand how a queue works. Then, crew was up and down the aisle the entire flight which flew from midnight took 9:00. Not even possible to sleep on this overnight flight."
Cons: "Going to board the plane and they told a group of like 30 of us we had been selected for random security check. So obviously it took a long time to get all those people through the check and we departed very late. Then sat on the tarmac for an hour and forty five minutes. The pilot said it would be 15 minutes and then never gave another update beyond that, which made it much worse."
Pros: "Most of the crew was very pleasant and helpful. Food was decent, but much better on the return trip out of Poland. Thank YOU."
Cons: "The toilet lids need to be fixed so that they don't keep hitting you in the back. They do not stay up. Other passengers were talking about the same thing."
Pros: "Nice crew and polite"
Cons: "Bathrooms, not clean and not functioning Delays"
Pros: "Everything was okay! Thank you LOT!"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hrs"
Cons: "I paid extra for my seat, but it was uncomfortable from LAX to Warsaw - too tight and cramped that the cabin was hot through most of the trip. Crew was okay, but for such a long trip, I would expect more comfort than what I get on short one-hour trips on small planes here in the US."
Pros: "Simple, quick service."
Cons: "Very basic service but not really any issues."
Cons: "The entire flight was cancelled. I didn't receive any notification from the airline prior to my arrival at the airport."
Pros: "Food and service were ok."
Cons: "I flew in Premium, but I had to call the airline to have the seat assigned. I could not choose the seat online although the website said I could choose a seat ahead of time. The only way to see the arrangement of seats was through seatguru.com. The best seats for the Premium Class are 4A, 4B and 4F and 4G, which are the first row in Premium. The rest of them have legs or boxes under the seat in front of you, so there is really now way you can stretch your legs fully under the seat in front of you during the flight. I was able to secure 4G for my return flight from Warsaw, but going to Warsaw from O'Hare I was put into 6B, no proper room for the right leg. They did not let us use the Business Class bathroom, which was much closer. We had to go all the way to the bathroom behind the row 19. Very inconvenient. They allow dogs in the Premium cabin, so if you are allergic to dogs brace yourself. I fly LOT only when I have no other option."
Pros: "Really fast, great service!!"
Pros: "Everything was easy, the planes are small Embraers or Bombardiers with two seats per row. The view up and over the Carpathians was great because you're going rather low and slow compared to jets"
Cons: "Nothing, it was fine"
Pros: "The flight was operated by LOT Airlines. The benefit of booking through Croatia Airlines is that I got to check a bag for free. If I had booked through LOT, it would have costed me money."
Cons: "It was all excellent."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Stewardess never smiled once! She was approx age 45 and should know by now how to be professional. Not the start to a vacation anyone would want."
Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."
Pros: "The ✈️ and timing"
Cons: "Amounts of food is ridiculously little for someone who gets hungry fast"
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The five hour delay of departure was not fine."
Pros: "Airplane, entertainment and food was ok"
Cons: "Air canada service is terrible as usual. Service with an attitude. No drinks served!"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Being 6' 4'' becomes an issue with modern seats."
Pros: "The pods were great on 777"
Cons: "Couldn't plug in CPAP"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Paid extra for a little bit more leg room and ONE free drink which I had to remind them it was free. My seat didn't recline. My Tuscan Wrap was tasteless -- no it tasted like sawdust, and the food was not even complimentary with the "plus" charges like it is on Westjet. No preboarding traveling with a pet. ☹️"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing so far, thanks."
Cons: "JustFly did not release my coupon to Lufthansa or Air Canada, and so I was nearly prevented from flying."
Cons: "Mix up with seating had boarding card reprinted twice and no one could explain why it happened. Staff otherwise were good."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "Air Canada's business seat is one of the best out there, and the crew on this flight was super friendly. Extra props to the service director, Joseph."
Cons: "Boarding was slow for business class joining after zone 2 announced. Despite being parked at a gate with two jetbridges, only one was used. AC could use a refresh on its entertainment selection - hasn't changed much over the summer."
Pros: "The attendants were friendly. The air conditioning was on point. Good music. I listened to the new slowdive for the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I remember not liking. It was great."
Pros: "Great gluten free meal. Calling ahead of time to order was well worth it."
Pros: "This flight was cancelled; I don't have any remarkably positive comments about it."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for several hours after we had already boarded (due to maintenance, I think), then was unexpectedly cancelled. Air Canada staff did not communicate with us clearly about the cancellation. We asked several staff members for help and some of them simply walked away; seemed like staff did not know what was going on. We over 90 minutes for in-person assistance, only to be directed to a telephone to re-book our flight. We missed an entire day of our trip to Japan. I'm very disappointed in my experience flying Air Canada."
Pros: "Nice new plane Decent food Very clean Friendly staff Ok entertainment"
Cons: "People had a lot of bags, and their zone boarding concept means I got on last and little to no room for my one average carry on..."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."
Cons: "To small of plane."
Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"

Cons: "Flight was delayed making me miss my connection. Poor customer service at the airport plus the fact that my baggage got lost however, it was delivered after 24 hours."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed 7 hours due to a maintenance issue, air canada did find another plane"
Cons: "The plane was dirty, smelly, 7 hours late. We sat in the Tarmac for 4 hours with one bag of pretzels and a small water. Completely unacceptable. Never again."
Cons: "TV didn't work Not snack or snack/food options even asked Got offered a drink much too late in the flight"
Pros: "Attractive and competent flight attendants What a soft landing"

Pros: "The food was good for plane food and there was a variety of choices for entertainment."

Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unhappy, sassy and got frustrated easily."
Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"
Cons: "Return flight delayed. No Reason given"
Cons: "Being next to toilets at bulkhead. People queing for bathroom in the extra leg space. I was on the outside seat and people constantly brushed past me and often grabbed hold of the moveable TV set in the dark to steady themselves knocking it. I paid extra money and had more problems. Listened to constant bathroom flushing and odors. Not ideal!"
Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue. The food was horrible. I will never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "No complementary food"
Pros: "It was a short flight so even if it was bad I wouldn't have minded that much but the plane was clean and smelled nice. Flight was very uneventful which is good."
Cons: "I have no complaints."

Pros: "everything is Ok."
Cons: "space is too small."
Pros: "On time"

Pros: "No entertainment beyond ipod rental..."
