If you want a flight that treats you like a luggge or a cow or a non existent person. This is it. Where do I start?! The earplugs will give you a migraine. The movie/tv screen is unresponsive or has a 5 second delay time. Some functions on the tv screen do not work. Two small disgusting meals that even prisoners do not receive You cannot buy extra food or anything on your flight. Bathroom stinks. The flight was dirty to enter with. My first and last time using avianca This is a disaster.

Old plane. Delayed but no apology. Not great

When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.

Beverage service was lacking…

Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.

Pros: "Nothing, I'm tired of the changing policies every time i fly with no heads up from the airline"

Cons: "Overall not bad. Food service can be better but it is due to the pandemic currently. Overall excellent flight!"
Pros: "I like that the middle seat is no used."

Pros: "comfortable seats in comf+ but no pillow or blanket for 4 hr red eye? Come on delta"
Cons: "Gate agent was the worst in two years..never smiled, never thanked anyone and didnt call me by name or recognize my diamond status. Boarding was a fiasco with the pillars in too small of a gate. FA had too much coffee they kept main babin lights on way too long and kept loudly asking if anyone wanted extra drinks snacks....this is a redeye, people want to sleep!!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."

Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."

Cons: "Not applied"

Cons: "Sooooo many things......there was NO PILOT!!!! Delta knew this 30 minutes before my flight landed and yet Delta did not post or communicate that the flight was going to be delayed and then ultimately cancelled because there was NO PILOT. Of course when they scheduled the flight for the following day not only did they not have a full crew, they had NO PLANE. On the whole, it was pretty terrible."

Cons: "No snacks passed out"
Cons: "Seatsnare ridiculously tight for a 6ft man."

Thank you!"

Pros: "Very nice, comfortable plane, everything went smoothly in spite of our little airport being overrun with eclipse tourists."
Cons: "We paid extra to be able to pick our seat ahead of time but when we got there we were told that in the first leg of our trip the flight was oversold and therefore we didn't have seat assignments anymore. The delta folks blamed Kayak. We did get seat together, but not the ones I had previously chosen. Also there was no beverage service on this flight."
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: "Everything about it was excellent, which is saying a lot for a guy who travels a lot."
Cons: "I realize that a flight attendant is there ultimately for safety reasons, but one of the three was particularly brusque in her interaction."
Cons: "We sat near the back of the plane and it was terribly noisy. You couldn barely converse with your seat partner or the flight attendant. These seats should be discounted."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Cons: "Some of the video I was watching on my personal screen was low quality. Difficult to hear and kept breaking up/freezing so I would miss important words. At one point I had to rewind it because I had missed something important. Captions were not available for the movie I was watching."
Pros: "Enjoy able"
Cons: "Noise"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."
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: "All went well"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfortable seating in business class Arriving JFK early."

On time

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Entretenimento"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. The waiting area was filled with people milling around, trying to find their line."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
Pros: "Plane was fine."
Cons: "Awful baggage experience. Forced to check my carry-on and pay an absurd fee even tho (1) it is sized for the overhead bin, (2) the plane bins were well-sized, and (3) there were few passengers on board. Time and money wasted."
Cons: "Everything!"
Pros: "The crew was very warm."
Cons: "Seats very tight."

Cons: "Baggage allowance."
Cons: "Nothing. All excelent"
Cons: "Better aircraft and personnel should smile and be more friendly"
Cons: "seat, food, entertainment system and options"
Pros: "Roomy seating. You guys need N/A for the ratings... there was no entertainment or food.... do I rate this 1 or 5 star?"
Pros: "food and flight attendants"
Cons: "not enough room for legs in latam and japan airlines...I know is just economy class but still for such a long flight it should be a bit more comfortable"
Pros: "Crew on board were nice"
Cons: "Staff at front desk were not friendly, baggage pricing and restrictions were unclear. Did not allow for online check in ahead of time. Service at check in desk very very slow"
Cons: "No wifi service"
Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."
Cons: "We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards."
Pros: "Good service, nice plan, great entertainment on my own phone. Very comfortable, good food"
Cons: "I cannot get water before we take off and I am not allowed to bring water aboard. Does not make sense."
Pros: "Servicio de entretenimiento"
Cons: "Un vuelo se demoro SIETE VECES mas tiempo, es una tortura estar encerrado siete horas perdiendo el tiempo en un avión PEOR si es que nos dicen que no se puede aterrizar por mal clima y otras aerolíneas si llegan al destino, la verdad ahora si prefiero viajar por LCPeru, Star, AVIANCA, Viva Air porque si no hay diferencia en el servicio pues pago algo menos, no vale la pena seguir trabajando con LATAM"
Pros: "Airline misallocated multiple seats to multiple passengers causing great confusion and delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Paid for an extra leg-room seat months before the flight. When I checked in days before, I find they have sold that seat to someone else. The schedule of the flight had changed and for that reason (?!?!) my reserved and paid for seat was not carried over!!"
Pros: "Jet blue was late so I miss my connecting fly to Uruguay"
Cons: "They send me with avianca and that was a nightmare disaster 4 days later still waiting for my luggage"
Pros: "It was dreamlined. So much leg room . Flight was one of the most comfortable one ina long time"
Pros: "Excelente."
Pros: "I would fly Latam again, good service and I saved a lot of money"
Cons: "Would like a lil bit more legroom"
Pros: "Notging"
Cons: "They rebook ed me thru LAX."
Pros: "The airline and crew were all excellent and a real pleasure to travel with them."
Cons: "Upon looking at the flights out of Peru we found that there were a lot more choices for returning to Tampa. We were looking at 37 hours of lay over between Lima and Miami. Upon finding the flights with less lay over time we changed our flights and were hammered with $400 change fees. Seemed a bit deceptive that all the flights were not listed when we originally booked. Will use a travel agent next time to make sure we do not run into this situation again."
Pros: "Nice flight, enjoyed the food, excellent service."
Cons: "Luggage lost"
Pros: "The crew had a nice attitude."

Pros: "El cumplimiento"
Cons: "El costo de los productos en vuelo y que no tienen cambio."
Pros: "The crews were pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 5.5 hours first and another 40 minutes after the boarding due to mechanical problems. Instead of arriving at 10 pm we ended landing at 4 am. We were so exhausted and basically wasted the hotel we booked for the night."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Main leg of flight which was to take me to Lima from the United States in the first place, was cancelled. Refund should have occurred, yet still charged. Please issue refund."
Cons: "I was charged 200 dollars to transport a 400 dollars surfboard. This makes it prohibitive for anyone to travel with our entertainment equipment. It should only qualify as sport equipment for remunerated athletes, not amateurs like me."
Pros: "LA TRIPULACION"
Cons: "SE PERDIO EL EQUIPAJE, LUEGO DE MAS DE 24 HRS NO LOS DEVOLVIERON"
Cons: "Same"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "muy amables"
Cons: "tuve problemas para hacer el check in on line por problemas con el sistema y tuve que hacerlo por teléfono. No conseguí los asientos que hubiera querido. Los que están en tránsito deberían permitirles bajar del avión antes para poder llegar en hora al otro vuelo. Sugiero que la tripulación informe a los pasajeros en tránsito sobre dónde dirigirse según el vuelo siguiente"
Pros: "The planes were new and immaculate, seats were comfortable, we were welcomed by the flight crew upon embarking, and there was a wonderful selection of entertainment."
Cons: "The food selection was rather light, especially for those with celiac issues and or vegetarian."
Pros: "Meal"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "This was my first time flying on LATAM and I will definitely use them again. Service and crew was very good."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like about the plane was my seat. I'm a small guy and I felt the seat was a bit tight."

I booked this reservation 2mo in advance with 2 lap babies. When i called to add the babies they never told me about the lap baby rule. If I would have known i would have bought my toddler her own seat no problem. They moved my seats far from each other. My babies need to sit near their mom it was a redeye. At check in the manager did us a “favor” and moved us to adjacent aisle seats… in the last row. Those seats don't recline and the constant people, flushing and talking woke the babies up all night. No one slept. The main attendant couldn’t be bothered and had a, get over it bad attitude. Oh did i mention i had a dog at my feet also?? Every time they were woken up by the bathroom (constantly) my babies would cry for their mommy and i could only hold on at a time. adjacent seats from mommy is not comforting . Why on earth would we be moved to those seats?! I know why. We were discriminated against for having babies. “Put the babies in the back.” I was a 4x a year flyer at minimum. We will NEVER fly with AA again and i will be filing a complaint. You should be ashamed of your treatment of a family and young children.

Cons: "The flight was full so no option to distance."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Being relatively on-time was nice for a change."

Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."

Pros: "Arrived 5 minutes early which was great on a very late night."
Pros: "It was average."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the entertainment was wonderful."

Pros: "There was a short delay but it was done professionally and I got a notice about it. I had nice people seating next to me and the craw was ok."
Cons: "It was upsetting that they didn’t have earbuds/headphones as my iPhone headphones can’t connect to the TV so I had to watch a movie without sound. You should have extras. I also wish they had a banana for us, it’s better than pretzels. And cheep and healthy."
Pros: "Food wash pretty good"
Cons: "I paid $10 for the WiFi service and it wouldn’t connect at all. I had a short flight so i never got to send my emails off. American Airlines should refund me my $10."

Pros: "Called 1-800 hotline and got a new flight"
Cons: "Was at gate onntime for flight. At boarding time passengers were informed if there was an issue with the plane and maintenance is on their way to check out the problem. 30 minutes later we were still till that maintenance is on their way. One hour later there is still no information as far as when the fight will leave but they kept updating the boarding time. There was only one person of the counter who could help re-assign passengers to different flights due to their layovers. After waiting in line for 40 minutes and the line making no movement I called the airline 1-800 hundred number and explain my situation to the American Airlines Airlines representative. they really give me a new flight that left 20 minutes later after my call if I did not call I would not mean it that flight nor any other fights that morning because they're all in the afternoon."
Pros: "Boarding at LAX went smoothly. A321 was clean and as comfortable as Main Cabin can be. Entire crew was excellent throughout the flight. I was pleasantly surprised."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "economy plus was worth the money"
Cons: "Flight attendants horrible refused to serve drinks or snacks due to "turbulence" But there was no turbulence. Then when passengers complained they served water only and splashed it into cups on the trays instead of pouring it into cups and handing the cups to the passengers. Nasty people."
Pros: "Having 3 seats to myself so I could spread out and relax was great!"
Cons: "The turbulence made it difficult to enjoy the flight The food needed better and more choices"

Cons: "That they are not more like them on other airline carriers."
Pros: "I got there in one piece. Even made my connection (barely)"
Cons: "TSA were abusing power and pulling ppl out of line like crazy. Tried to take Christmas toys from someone (and they weren’t in violation of anything. ) flight was delayed and took so long it would have been faster to drive to Charlotte. Whole airport was the most inefficient thing I have ever seen."

Cons: "At least one of the entertainment systems wasn't working right. Otherwise everything was okay."
Pros: "Over 2 hours delayed, plans ruined"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "The fly departed on time"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie kept freezing up. So did Sodoku game."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The woman in front of me pushed her seat all the way back. The people behind me were from Africa, and they talked really loudly. They didn't need to yell. Finally, why does American Airlines load the plane with the people who sit at the front first? It makes NO SENSE. Put the people who sit in the back on first. That way, you don't have to try to get past people in the front who are still trying to load their stuff or get seated. There has got to be a more efficient way of getting off the plane. We stood and stood waiting for passengers to get their stuff and disembark."
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Check in and boarding was quick"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The plane was freezing, then it was boiling hot. There was no happy medium. Never had this issue on a plane. The crew would not shut up. They talked endlessly on the speakers, which were blown out and had some sort of buzzing feedback which made listening unbearable. I hated every minute of this flight and was so glad to be off the plane."
Pros: "The access ramp lessen the risk of tripping over I've experienced with the steps in the past."
Cons: "Corny jokes from the male cabin crew don't improve the flight in experience, we're crammed in like cattle and given a LTA meal and coffee."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Upon leaving Raleigh, N.C. Our plane was carrying a fallen soldier and a marine who accompanied him . They announced this and gave the other passengers the opportunity to walk to an area to watch the very solemn ceremony. It was all done with respect and handled timely. The flight still left as scheduled and arrived on time. Not that this was the most important part. Even if it had caused me to miss my connecting flight, the ceremony for the fallen hero was more important."
Pros: "The boarding process was efficient and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "The plane was antiquated and the seat space and leg room were minimal."
Cons: "It was all excellent."
Cons: "First plane was newer, 2nd plane was older."
Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Cons: "Air Canada continues to underwhelm me. We left the gate 35 minutes late despite having everyone on board. Then off to de-ice where we sat with a truck outside for ten minutes they did work. It was like they were having a coffee break. The flight and board service was exceptional. Baggage delay of a"
Cons: "They changed planes and the seats I paid for at reservation were different on the new plane. No warning!!"
Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."
Cons: "JustFly did not release my coupon to Lufthansa or Air Canada, and so I was nearly prevented from flying."
Cons: "This leg was so late...I was waiting in Calgary almost 7 hours... they put me on a different flight so I would make my connector in Toronto to Windsor....I originally had a 2 hour window. The second plane was so late, by the time I landed in Toronto, I had 10 minutes. Needless to say, after starting out in Kamloops at 6 am, that was missed also. Last leg missed as well, and had to wait another 4 hours for the last flight out. Just an incredibly frustrating trip"
Pros: "Movies available. Food available for purchase."
Cons: "It was crowded in the back of the aircraft. Many vacant rows were available, but my advance check in and seat change / upgrade was not available on line. I would have paid to have moved up to an un-occupied section of the aircraft if I could have. My mistake. I should have got up and walked around looking for these vacant seats. Despite the captain announcing that WIFI Internet was available for purchase. There was no WIFI on this aircraft. I am a tech guy. The flight attendant said just use your credit card. NO there was no WIFI available."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving and I had a connection flight - they changed my seat so I could be at the front and get my bag easily and run to get my connecting flight. Everyone was very helpful."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "My seat was wet and i had to wait quite a while for it to be rectified. I asked to sit on a crew seat at the back of the plane and was told that i would break it. I found this rather disgusting . Seating plan is very crammed like sardines"
Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"
Cons: "Cancelled one flight, then delayed another one because they were waiting for a pilot. They offered very little help, citing that they couldn’t control the weather, meanwhile WestJet is finding & paying for rooms, shuttle buses and taxis to make the delay more tolerable and less stressful. We could only watch and wish we were flying WestJet."
Pros: "Everything else was fine/standard."
Cons: "Not all ground staff are crosstrained on how to accept manual payment for extra luggage and had to wait an extra half hour for the only person who can process a debit transaction. Does not make sense..."
Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "flight was late"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"
Cons: "The plane was late and caused me to miss my connecting flight and my very important doctor's appointment."
Pros: "Calgary airport first and foremost went above and beyond for me. The flight then after was the same, friendly attendants, great smooth flight. 5 stars for staff."
Cons: "The headphones are bad, i had my own headphones so it was fine. I did go w the air canada ones first just out of convenience, but they were fuzzy, probably would have ruined the movies."
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "Flight late (30 minutes) as mostly with Air Canada, fortunately not cancelled this time as also common with Air Canada short distance flights Not enough space in overhead compartments for carry on. The lady at the boarding makes it sound like that is the passengers fault."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Pros: "Once again, being on time was important to me. Crew members were nice."
Cons: "I wish they would've offered free snacks on this flight given how long it was. It would've also been to nice to have been forewarned about needing to go through security again, as I had a U.S. connection from Toronto. That takes a lot of time, even with a bit of a layover."
Pros: "Good leg room in coach"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, the boarding process was messed up and could not understand the person doing the announcements (was speaking too fast)..."
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Cons: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were narrow and sitting in aisle seat you were constantly hit every time cabin crew took trolley up / down aisle. Woke up by cabin crew banging into me."
Pros: "The flight itself was good. Service at the end of the flight was the worst ever."
Cons: "They got in late to lax. Made no apparent effort to get us on alternative airlines or flights. I was rebooked on a flight 24 hours out No help finding hotels, meals or even terminal. It was a codeshare with united but neither would united help in any way because it was booked through air Canada."
Cons: "Air Canada was one hour late leaving the gate. This in fact was a great improvement as when we left Montreal on Dec.21 they were 4 hours late and in the best of xmas cheer didn't even offer us a free drink. Way to go AC."
Pros: "the seat beside me was open"
Cons: "they made us rush through customs while yellig at us nd being very condescending then we waited an hour to board because the airport door wouldn't open for the crew"
Cons: "The lady who checked us in caused a major problem with seating. The person I was traveling with was blind and I was her guide. We specifically asked to be seated together and the lady told me we were. I even confirmed with her and she told me yes again. When we boarded we found out our seats were 17 rows apart. I found out that she did this for the connecting flight as well (not as far apart but still not together) this caused a great deal of stress as I couldn't help her when I needed to."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the crew was friendly. We were re-booked onto another flight by the time we de-planed, which took some stress away."
Cons: "The entertainment selection needs more variety. The food choices were just okay. The flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Also, our friend received a food voucher for the delay while we did not. Boarding can be a little chaotic."
Pros: "This flight ended up arriving at the final destination a day later instead of first thing in morning last thing at night."
Pros: "Only 30 minutes late, nice landing."
Cons: "Pitch between seats, filth all over seat back and tray table, mass rush to board when zone three is called, no free snacks, limited drink choices, etc."
Pros: "Meh."
Cons: "Video display didn't accept touch input so didn't work at all."
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"
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."
Cons: "I had a last minute seat assignment (middle seat) in both legs of my flight. AC lost my bags and a day later only retrieved one of them. Still waiting for my second bag."
Cons: "Too many people with more than two bags. You have to force more people to put there bags in the plane storage not overhead. Two many carry-on bags and people had back packs with another bag, some computer bags. It takes too long to board the plan"
Pros: "Comfort of seats and spaciousness of the plane"
Cons: "Agent off loaded me and only me from return flight with zero reason. Second flight I was put on was delayed 2 hours. Sat for 5 hours in the airport for a 1 hour domestic flight. Customer service was terrible. Emailed Air Canada 4 days ago and have yet to recover any response."
Pros: "Linda the Air Canada check in Agent at the Priority desk in Calgary was the best Check in Agent I have ever dealt with in over 20 years of business travel. I was with my family and she even made a special effort with my two Granddaughters that they are still talking about today. She is the reason Air Canada still has ALL of my business every year"
Pros: "They had a wheelchair accessible for me and delivered me to my waiting party."
Pros: "Entertainment system might have been nice if the earphone plug worked."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat of all time because it was broken but the flight attendant didn't care."
Pros: "Great valve"
Cons: "Delay in boarding by about 20 minutes. Had to stand in line for about 1 hour because we were not allowed in the terminal seating area until the previous plane's passengers disembarked."
Pros: "New 787 dreamliner, live up to the hype."
Cons: "Its hard to sleep as the seat is very bench like. Air Canada's food isnt as generous as it use to be, but their fares are quite low so i guess its a tradeoff."
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride. Small plane size did allow for quick retrieval of bags at final destination."
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer."
