Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "Very smooth flight and friendly crew"
Cons: "Chairs really uncomfortable"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Pros: "That it got me home"
Pros: "Snacks that include a dairy free option like the kind granola bar"

Pros: "Maintained high standards of service despite massive delay."
Cons: "Boarding and departure was messy because of the delay"
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient."
Cons: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient. Unfortunately, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get into our gate because another plane was there, so we arrived late. Not DELTA's fault."
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: "Delayed for an hour and fifteen minutes"
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"
Cons: "Boarding process was horrible, it was first class, priority, zone 1 and then all other zone. There was no order. Flight was delayed. Had a 3 hour delay on the tarmac!"
Pros: "I love Delta. Smooth boarding. Quality service. Keep it up!"
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "entertainment services"
Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."
Pros: "Excellent video selection, Sweetwater 420, cookies were good. Landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "We took off and landed early. The crew was wonderful and the snacks were exactly what I needed."
Cons: "We landed early and were stuck waiting on the plane for an hour and fifteen minutes for a gate to open."
Cons: "Delayed four hours"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Tv wouldn't work and delay that wasn't weather related and the food was awful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour resulting missing connecting flight"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Both flights were on-time, no gate changes. Staff was friendly enough, and seat back entertainment was appreciated. Everything went as you always hope it does for flights!"
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"
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Cons: "They should have separate lanes on boarding like United. Then people can line up in the appropriate group."
Pros: "Some entertaining choices but not all clear which ones were in my flight"
Cons: "The food I wanted had sold out by the time I ordered it"
Cons: "I did not like being assigned to a seat that did not recline at all and was given no up front warning so it was a very unwelcome surprise at the start of my 6+ hour flight."
Cons: "Spent 90 minutes on the plane before it even took off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The flight was over two hours late because of winds in San Francisco."
Cons: "I got very cold during the flight, the ac was so cold that I had to stay in my winter jacket and a hood."
Pros: "Have not flown Delta for some time and was very impressed. Definitely would fly again."
Pros: "The dreamliner is an amazing plane. I really liked the window tinting feature it has."
Cons: "Entertainment aka movies.. this was an older plane - should have brought a book as I’m used too movie screens"
Pros: "Dry accommodating staff all around. Thank you"
Cons: "More space between people. Not much you can do I understand that. So overall great"
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."
Pros: "The plane was one of their most recent to their fleet of planes. Lots of overhead luggage space and extra leg room. Nice looking on the inside"
Cons: "I like the overall feel to the inside."
Pros: "The luggage was taken good care of"
Cons: "There wasn’t any complimentary gluten free snacks :3"
Cons: "Small plane but I know it’s supply and demand"
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "Before taking this flight, I was very nervous because of all the bad reviews on here and other sites. The only good reviews seemed to be by people from Alberta (not really trustworthy, as they seem to support anything that's from Alberta, and note that Westjet is based in Alberta...). But I was blown away by how organized Westjet was and how nice they were. All the flights were on time (I had a few layovers), the staff was helpful....I really have no complaints. Sure, they don't have a plethora of great in-flight entertainment such as movies, etc. But when I fly, I'd rather pay less, have the staff be nice/organized, and just bring a darn book to entertain me. It was a great first flight with this company. I would fly with them again....and I can't remember the last time I said that about any other airline. So do yourself a favor: Don't listen to the bad reviews on here (unless you're obsessed with in-flight entertainment and big-butt first class seats)."
Cons: "The movie and T.V. show selection was bad. But that's not a big deal for me...."
Pros: "Everyone was kind and helpful. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Trip was too short."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant it just gets a bit too hokey!"
Cons: "Calgary airport for a transfer between Canada and the US is like a bad episode of Monty Python! It takes far too long and is far too dependent on the efficiency of silly tram drivers, baggage handlers who are phantoms and computer efficacy! All I care about at the airport, and all I want from airport staff is ruthless efficiency. Anything besides ruthless efficiency is just obnoxious and wastes my time!! No wifi on the aircraft nothing decent to eat on a flight scheduled during the dinner hour"
Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "This flight and the one before we're both delayed by over an hour. What's worse is each time we ended up spending about 20-30 min slowly driving around the runway since the takeoff queue was backed up so much. Maybe not the airlines fault for that but the pilot never said a word about it and kept us in the dark. Each flight was in total delayed by several hours. It seems more often than not these days that flights are delayed and are totally unreliable. I've come to hate flying."
Cons: "i ordered food but it wasnt provided. i havent checked to see if money was withdrawn from my account. i also would have prefered to have westjet connect. there is better selection and i could use my bluetooth headphones"
Pros: "Excellent staff. I wish american carriers would take lessons from them."
Cons: "I was sitting next to a 5 year-old boy who had a hard time sitting and his mother had nothing for him to do. He kept kicking me, by accident, and was disruptive and noisy. Finally I decided on a counting game with his m &m's and that lasted for about half an hour. I know that West Jet had mo control over this situation."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff exceptional !!"
Pros: "Service crew was so nice and accomodating"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
Pros: "Quick unload"
Cons: "Big delay"
Pros: "Always a good experience travelling with west jet"
Pros: "Not often do you feel like you really "welcomed aboard." This was not the case on our flights to and from Calgary. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. That was refreshing. I did like the Westjet Connect feature. You don't have a TV screen in the back of each seat. You download the app and you get to watch TV, Movies, News all on your own device for free. A nice plus is that you can change all your devices with USB power port at each seats you never run out of a charge."
Cons: "The only thing that I did dislike was on the return we flew a 737-600 which did not leg room like the 737-800 we flew on first. The under seat storage is skimpy in the middle seat where an entertainment server is located"
Cons: "I was really tired. Long line getting into the USA section. Argh. Let's just say I was grumpy and wanted to get home. Staff wss really nice."
Pros: "staff was great, left and arrived on time and we stayed up in the air!"
Pros: "Check in time"
Cons: "Had to buy food and my luggage which had my medications didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Service was great. Seats seemed to have shrunk. I sat in a middle seat. Hmm."
Cons: "So far better than most of the US airline."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew and great personal help and attention at check in."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "No choice for seating - my husband and I were seated separately"
Pros: "Wonderful crew-from the gate to the plane! Everyone was polite and helpful. I will definitely fly WestJet again."
Pros: "Fortunately the plane was not crowded at 9pm and they made up for the 15 minute delay and arrived on time. Everything was pleasant and as expected."
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"
Pros: "Really fast"
Pros: "We got some extra help in the airport :). Thanx"
Pros: "From check-in to cabin crew, everyone seemed helpful and knowledgeable. Flights on time, cabins clean and pleasant, seats comfortable, with good leg room."
Cons: "Entertainment a bit limited."
Pros: "Smoot boarding on time leaving earlier they were we supposed to be everything will be smooth"
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "My daughter ordered the tickets for us but she didn't pick seats. We forget to pre checked in, either. Our flight was very full so We are so lucky got the first class seats! This is the first time in our life with first class experiences! It was on the July 4th and saw a lots of fireworks in the airplane! We are so exciting! Thank you for West Jet Airline!"
Cons: "Having to pay to watch a movie and ear plugs"
Pros: "Fast efficient service for check in with bags"
Pros: "I am eternally grateful to both the airport and flight staff for letting my boyfriend and I catch this plane. We arrived very late to the airport, very close to the cut off time, and the staff let us try and catch the plane regardless. It was my mothers birthday dinner that night, so I am extremely grateful they let us through to try and make our flight. Thanks WestJet!"
Pros: "Gate agents were nice."
Cons: "1. Nothing healthy to buy on the plane. 2. Nasty flight attendant. 3. Small seats. 4. Swollen ankles because flight attendant wouldn't let me put my stocking feet up in bulkhead seat, which is why I purchased it. 5. Poor service. 6. Plane landed early but we didn't get to the gate until more than an hour later!"
Pros: "Regular seating on this West Jet flight was great, very comfortable with ample room."
Pros: "Cleaniness and timing the most."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better since this is not a short flight."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, definitely love the new planes...lol... polite, friendly, fun, flight attendants."
Cons: "One can get free beer or wine but no tomato juice?"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice don't know who's fault it"
Cons: "Almost an hour to get any luggage out is not acceptable"
Pros: "I got motion sickness and they helped me bringing ice to put on my neck. It helped a lot. They were amazing!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and the meal I pre-ordered was very nice. Snacks and beverages were complimentary."
Cons: ""Engine trouble" so off the plane and back to the gate. Not much information conveyed to us. Just sitting and waiting. Took off about 2 hours late. No entertainment. $6.99 for a tablet."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Was too hot"
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to board because my sister is autistic traveling with her service dog. This had been the worst experience ever. We feel discriminated for something that is outside our control . This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Cabin crew very attentive, engaged and friendly."
Cons: "The boarding structure did t have very clear signs for priority boarding and the leg room didn’t seem anything different from reg economy. I feel I didn’t get anything more for what I paid for AM plus."
Pros: "I love to fly with aeroMexico. service and safety."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "Everything: got to pick my seat with extra leg room, easy boarding process, SUPER friendly crew, very nice"
Cons: "We had to wait quite a while for our baggage at the baggage claim but I'm pretty sure that's an SFO issue and not the airline"
Pros: "They tried to move people with quickly onto the plane"
Cons: "The boarding staff was kinda clueless how to organize the hoard of passengers. The randomly decided what group to board first without properly communicating. That causes the confusion and frustration of the passengers who thought they would board first."
Cons: "Not being able to choose an aisle seat made the flight uncomfortable for me and my neighbors"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours (reason unknown) and the entertainment on flight shut off once and then froze for 20 minutes"
Cons: "No wifi, no movies, no power outlets. The budget airline I flew to Mexico (Volaris) was nicer."
Pros: "Great service all around. I would recommend."
Cons: "The ground crew in CDMX is inept."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "It was going to be a 45 mins delay, turned out to be 1 1/2hrs"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "We boarded fast and we arrived on time"
Cons: "I requested a "Fragile" label for my suitcase. They said they ran out of them. When I came back home, they had break 2 memories. One of them from the conference I taught. I tried to wrap them as tight as possible. I am aware of the risks of carrying fragile things but I can't stop thinking that the label might had helped avoiding things getting break. Flight Attendance were not very friendly. They were not rude but defiantly not friendly"
Cons: "International flight. 5 hours. Entertainment system did not work at all for the entire plane. For the entire flight. TERRIBLE."
Cons: "Food was lacking."
Pros: "SAME THAN ABOVE"
Cons: "SAME THAN ABOVE"
Pros: "Food and alcoholic beverages are included flight attendants were very nice and polite the screens were awesome with a good selection of movies and series."
Cons: "choosing sits is extra Overall the flight was smooth but it was delayed because boarding started late, which is ridiculous."
Pros: "crew, entertainment and food."
Cons: "I paid too much money for my luggage (one suitcase) without any explanation at the moment. The lady sent me to paid while she weighted my suitcase. Later, I saw a label that said overweight. (I could take stuff out of it if I knew. I could safe $400 pesos)"
Cons: "We ended up on the same plane that we flew on from Cancun to Guadalajara. Major disappointment since this is about a 4 1/2 hour flight. Flight was full so we were unable to move our seats. It was a very uncomfortable flight. Also had challenges being able to use restroom while flight attendants were serving food or drinks. Had to wait until they were done and it took a while. Broken and uncomfortable seats. Lacked entertainment. Plane should be retired or have major upgrades. Otherwise, this plane should be used for short (less than 2 hours) flights."
Cons: "Read above. Flight sucked."
Cons: "No entertainment options. No vegetarian meal. No adjustable headrest."
Pros: "very smooth flignt"
Cons: "boarding took a long time due to last minute checkups"
Cons: "Well, I missed my flight currently still waiting to HOPEFULLY board my flight home to San Francisco."
Cons: "No vegetarian food even though I requested it! They switched my seat from an aisle to a middle. Not ok! Rude agent at the gate who told me she couldn't help me get a vegetarian dish."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly, no delays. Friendly staff."
Cons: "I got tired of getting crossaint sandwiches for each meal on flughts. Didn't like having to go through customs in Mexico when I was just catching a connecting flight."
Cons: "the only food served to us during the fly was a breakfast which one was the combination of black beans with eggs which was rotten and smelling very bad ...."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and they need to be replaced I felt pain sitting down the cushion is worn down. had my seat been comfortable I could have rated higher."
Cons: "Lost my luggage, didn't get it until the next night, when I had a very important wedding in Mexico."
Pros: "Good legroom, nice to get free snack"
Cons: "Need confirmation number on calendar to help with check in"
Pros: "I will not fly in this airline never."
Cons: "Dalay,boarding not very well organized."
Pros: "The stewardesses were hotties with very cute outfits. The chars were fairly comfortable and spacious."
Pros: "We made each of our flights only by the will of the Aeromexico crew and they were extremely friendly."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, neither due to weather. It made transferring to our next flights feel like absolute chaos, where even the people were scrambling. The plane for the longer flight (SFO - CUN) was a visibly older plan and the seats felt like sitting on concrete. Also, it didn't notify me while booking that the seats in front of the exit row didn't recline (or I missed it somehow), and the seats didn't just not recline - they actually leaned forward a bit! The seats themselves were VERY tightly packed - likely the tightest I've ever been in."
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The system they have to check in is the worst. Why should you have to make a HUGE LONG line to print a boarding pass than go make another HUGE LONG LINE to check in your bags. On top of it all they charge $25 for the first bag you check in. WTF that's just being crazy. Soon they will charge people to use the on board toilet. The crew members were very rude, don't smile. They give you actitude when you asthem for something. Uncomfortable seats from the 80's. Smelly airplane. I wouldn't recommend flying with Aeromexico ever!"
Pros: "Same comments I made before."
Cons: "Same comment I made previously."
Pros: "Flight attendant they were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The boarding in Guadalajara"
Cons: "Flight delays and time changes on both routes. Lost our luggage and still has not contacted us about the lost bag 48 hours later (they promised within 24 hours). Will not fly AeroMexico again."
Pros: "La atencion."
Cons: "Faltan buenas películas y buena música."
Pros: "I had a good time traveling with aeromexico. I recommend to check in online first before heading to the airport. All the staff were friendly. My plane departed and arrived on time. They also had a great selection of movies ."
Cons: "Why they they have to announce if anyone wants to give up their seats. We paid for our seats and we will like to go to our destination. Why are the flights being over booked?"
Pros: "All the airplane attendants were super helpful and friendly. And the complementary food and drinks were s delicious and refreshing, which is surprising for an airplane company."
Cons: "The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because in Mexico City due to the Mexican government we had to transfer our bags manually. Nothing due to Aeromexico's doing."
Pros: "Arriving safely"
Cons: "Old plane (felt like I was back in the '90s), late departure, airport moved gate multiple times."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "very small aisle and uncomfortable seats, the whole cabin felt very cramped."
Pros: "I was scheduled for a flight much later but was able to be accommodated on the earlier flight in the back row. The crew was great and even had food for me. I had the whole row to myself except when the crew wanted to rest, which was no problem!"
Cons: "Baggage was delayed coming off of the plane, which was annoying since it was a direct flight to SFO and there wasn't an explanation on why the delay."
Cons: "Baggage claim was understaffed and slow."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this helped us because our flight prior was also insanely delayed."
Pros: "Every time I travel with Aeromexico it's been a good experience. Staff are friendly and courteous."
Pros: "I liked the friendly staff and the entertainment."
Cons: "It took far too long to leave the runway."
Pros: "Great customer service, comfortable seats, cool movies and good food"
Pros: "Cheap flight, ability to pay upgrade."
Cons: "Check in is never possible online in Mexico City. Then Aeromexico checkin tellers are relatively disinterested. I've flown Aeromexico almost 20 times this year, please change the friggin food! A cheese and ham croissant, baby carrots and a snickers bar! Weak."
Pros: "Transfer through Mexico city airport is a nightmare. You can clear immigration, get your luggage, clear customs, transfer terminal, check in your luggage, going through security, and finally get to your gate. All without any clear guidance from the airline or the airport. I will never fly through Mexico City again."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."
Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Cons: "experienced a 1hr mechanical delay. it would be nice if refreshments were served."
Pros: "Actually had leg room on these flights and was pretty comfortable. Excellent crew, food pretty good too on the first leg."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Internet slow to access."
Pros: "The row I was in was spacious, I'm glad that I paid extra to move closer to front of plane and then paid extra to get an earlier boarding. I would recommend seat 13C for these types of flights. Legroom was good and I was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment program was a bit glitchy towards the end of my flight, but I slept inside. Maybe check all screens and such because it wasn't really registering when I would push the buttons."
Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"
Pros: "Nothing special, but no problems. I did pay for the fruit and cheese plate, which I think is a good deal for the price. Brie is better than you'd expect on a plane! Totally recommend it."
Cons: "tvs weren't working correctly during the entire flight"
Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."
Cons: "Felt sufforcation again and flight was delayed"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."
Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"
Cons: "I didn't get ANY flight status reports until I had arrived and was at my destination for the night!! American did a fine job. I got updates TODAY on my flight and baggage claim for yesterdays flight form you!!! Your service sucked balls!!"
Cons: "Again American Airlines was LATE. It was boarding time and no agent was at the gate. 10 minutes past boarding time the screen shows that the flight is delayed 25 minutes... but wait, there is still no plane at the gate! After 45 minutes the plane arrived, again had to be "cleaned" and prepared for flight back to SF. Customers were told the flight was delayed because Air Traffic Control issues in SF, but there was no plane in sight... Again I felt we were being lied to. The plane was filthy with garbage everywhere still. I will never fly American Airlines by choice!"
Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."
Pros: "I can't comment on food or entertainment and there is no N/A option. I did not purchase food or use the wifi for entertainment. The seat I upgraded to was comfortable and spacious even if it didn't recline (I sat in front of the OWWE)."
Pros: "Pilot did a great job coming into SFO airport. Had to abort landing and do it again."
Cons: "Unless we slept through it, no food or snack was served. It was a 6+ hour flight. I was awake for water and soda offerings but not even nuts. To be fair, I may have been asleep but I woke up every time a drink was offered. We came from a connecting international flight with no time to get a meal. We grabbed a bagel as we rushed through the airport. I didn't pick the flight so we couldn't have more time."
Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."
Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."
Cons: "Multiple delays, ended up having to change flights, then 2nd flight was also delayed. The only silver lining was the customer service representative, I think named Sofie(?) was astoundingly wonderful and helpful."
Pros: "The entertainment screens and the new seats in business class were very nice"
Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "It's nice to see a large corporation getting back to the basics which helped their company grow CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!"
Cons: "The airport waiting times through TSA check points. It's over kill and an obvious reason just to extend employment. Reminds me of the old saying " the criminals are running the asylum @"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The snacks are good and the seats are fairly comfortable. The entertainment options were nice too."
Cons: "But paying $8 for 30 mins of Wi-Fi is just outrageous. I did not, and will not ever pay that much for internet service. Additionally, my bag was asked to be checked at the gate. Mind you, my bag was a Airline Compliant design, that fit into the overhead bin sideways on the same sized plane going out to Chicago. If the flight were full, I would understand them being cautious about space, but the plane was barely over half full. It was just an annoying inconvenience."
Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the ground staff made no effort to update its passengers as the mood to grow angry, however instead two of the counter people continued to laugh joke and talk between themselves as everyone grew more and more restless by 6:30pm"
Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together."
Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was not skilled or kind in dealing with others around me. Had the finesse of a frustrated 10 year old when asking other to check their bags."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Pros: "The actual flight was fine."
Cons: "The gate staff was so rude."
Cons: "Delay 1st leg. Had to rebook to later flight. Later flight delayed. Then delayed again due to crew time out. Arrived 4 hours later than originally scheduled. Meaning public transportation could not be used to get into downtown final destination. Made an originally short trip even shorter."
Cons: "babies crying"
Pros: "How the pilot was insistent on the idea of taking off and flying, although we were informed of two system error messages, alledgedly the first for an issue with the AC, the other regarding the drain system. After our return to the gate for the second warning, I deplaned. Didn't feel safe after that!"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."
Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful providing updates to our status. They moved us smoothly on and off the plane during the delay."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for what seemed like hours. The initial boarding was confusing with multiple levels of priority boarding."
Cons: "The plane was freezing and made me very uncomfortable! I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and she told me no. Even though I saw some in first class.... I would have purchased one. It was very hard for me to fall asleep because of how cold I was. Comfort is one of the main things I expect in a 4 plus hour flight."
Pros: "Thank you for the new, comfortable plane"
Cons: "No IFE on 6 hour flight."
Cons: "All 3 of my flights were delayed due to mechanical issues. GET IT TOGETHER"
Pros: "All hostes are nice"
Cons: "İt was Delay almost 90 mins and the plane was so cold:)"
Cons: "No good"
Pros: "Great staff on plane"
Cons: "Plane was overweight due to the plane carrying luggage from a previous flight. This is poor logistics planning on Air Canada. We were delayed by an hour and waited inside the plane on the tarmac while they removed the extra luggage to reduce weight."
Pros: "On tiime"
Cons: "Has to wait an hour and a half at the gate to park in sanfransico"
Cons: "No offer to have transportation to gate. I am disabled and had a very long walk."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with good entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Everything I'll do the same next trip!!"
Cons: "No complaints!!"
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."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour in total"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The in-flight viewing service was not functioning. For an entire 6 hours and half, we couldn't watch movies or anything else."
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."
Cons: "Many connecting flights jammed together F terminal at YYZ. SOME thing caused delay after delay. This really messed up baggage people. Once we boarded after like - 10 delays and a gate change, there were NUMEROUS whole-flight mixups with luggage - so many similar flight numbers traveling to same destination and whole flights awaiting their luggage. Our party of four had our luggage spread through THREE different planes. WTH? No customer service at DTW once we arrived and there were so many livid people. Absolutely awful. We were supposed to arrive at 5PM and it's now 3:11AM. My son just completed filing a luggage claim loss. And we are off to drive home to Grand Rapids two hours away. Nightmare."
Cons: "Talking, crying 6 yr old next to me."
Pros: "terrific video entertainment, excellent and affordable food choices"
Pros: "Friendly service by captain and crew. Frequent information provided abut flight."
Cons: "Food was available for purchase. Only small beverage served with mini sized snacks."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "The crew to Calgary was wonderful. Flights were on time. Airbus was comfortable and quiet."
Cons: "The crew from Calgary to Toronto was average - not pleasant...."
Cons: "For an overnight flight I would have expected the lights to be turned off, or at least dimmed. My plan to sleep and enjoy my day of return did not go ask planned."
Pros: "Seat is not too crowded"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "cramped no food"
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: "Late arriving because of out delay from the original flight and missedvout on our hotel booking"
Pros: "787-9 Full Flat business class"
Pros: "Cabin service was pleasant and professional, ambient lighting dimmed for sleeping (it was quite late), restrooms were clean, and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Cons: "Flight was 1h late"
Pros: "Loved the direct flight! Landed ahead of schedule which facilitated my workday."
Cons: "A bit long for baggage loading especially we arrived in almost midnight"
Pros: "pleasant staff / flight attendants."
Cons: "i was unlucky to get young noisy kids behind me and in my row each flight. but that is nothing Air Canada can do anything about."
Pros: "loved the free movies"
Pros: "Nice selection of media. 767-300 is comfortable."
Cons: "Late boarding due to plane's turnaround issues. Unusually long delays at baggage claim...may have been lack of coordination on part of the airport."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay."
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: "Great food, attentive service and comfortable seating"
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Pros: "The flight back to Newark was good. Boarding was smooth and crew kept walking around with water to keep everyone hydrated."
Cons: "The plane was old and cramped and entertainment system had issues. Movie choices were not that great."
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "small flights"
Cons: "Screaming kids right behind me for 3 1/2 of the 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Kind crew"
Cons: "Littled staffed"
Cons: "I had to leave"
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: "Not too crowded"
Cons: "Flight was late by over an hour."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "The gate agent was extremely helpful and was able to accommodate me standby on this flight vs a later flight."
