Pros: "Normal flight with every seat filled. I liked the icw.cream bar they served."
Cons: "Small seats. Dirty air."

Pros: "All that one would want."
Pros: "Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward"
Pros: "The baby"
Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"
Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."
Pros: "Delta did a great job - you absolutely can not complain about the food/drink service as they are seemingly constantly walking through the aisles to offer more food and drinks. The coffee is kind of lousy, but I'm sure it is a tremendous challenge to serve good coffee on an airplane."
Cons: "My entertainment system was essentially broken - one of the crew members was very helpful in helping me try to fix it and then giving a voucher for what I thought was a reasonable amount."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."
Cons: "This flight was on a Transavia codeshare with Delta and a real downer after coming from a Delta One business class segment. An uncontrolled mass boarding, crammed in seating, no amenities and charges for a drink of water made this a pretty crappy flight. The crew was nice though."
Cons: "So so food. Terrible delay leaving Beijing. Gatemoccupied in SEA."
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."
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: "Seat was comfortable, easy access to entertainment, charging station at the chair, staff made accommodation for vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Maybe this is a China issue and not the airline but I wasn't able to bring an unopened bottle of water that I purchased in the security area. This made the 10 hour flight very uncomfortable as I went hours without water. Also, use of iPad for reading books wasn't allowed after the flight was established, I'm not sure who came up with these regulations but after spending a month on various flights in Asia, this was the only flight where I encountered these issues. Also, there was no vegetarian option in economy. Fortunatly, the staff brought a left over dinner from business class but I find it hard to believe that flight to the US would not have a vegetarian option."
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."
Cons: "A flying chicken bus. The air conditioning was really loud."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I will never fly to Europe with anyone else. No joke. Best flying expierence ever."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. From start to finish great time."
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Cons: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."
Cons: "Great experience."
Cons: "- The extra baggage fees were 5 times higher than the announced on the website which caused a lot of troubles. - The booked special meals (halal) were too spicy and not proper for children at all ( we just wanted normal meals without non-halal ingredients. - No basic medications on the first flight."

I frustrated with this decision at late hours . I asked full consideration of all the difficulty situation and the turbles they put me ."
Cons: "Luggage lost"
Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my suitcase...."
Pros: "The food was better than average. Portions were good and it was tasty. Movie selection was also great and included many recent releases. They provided a hot towel service bedorw and after meals which I loved."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pros: "The fact that I could have upgraded to premium economy. The space available in economy."
Cons: "The length of the flight but it is what it is. I couldn't upgrade to premium economy before arriving at the airport because of this being a code share flight with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pros: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "A little too warm for me."
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."
Pros: "Air Canada could learn a few things from you - ie, the incredible impact of providing free food and excellence customer service at the checkout and gates."
Pros: "Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive in Naples with us. We heard nothing from Lufthansa despite making numerous attempts to email and call the airline. Our hotel tried to call as well to see if someone could at least tell us if and when our luggage might arrive.We had to go out and buy clothes and personal items. It was a terrible way to start a holiday."
Pros: "I liked professionalisam of the flight crew from the start till the end of the flight. They were always nice and ready to serve on 10 hours flight."
Cons: "Gepäck bei Ankunft total durchnässt. Nicht tragbar. Musste Schlafanzug leihen. Papiere,Buch ebenfalls. Was jetzt? Sitzreservierung erst 23 Stunden vorher? Warum??? In Orlando Eincheckschalter schwer zu finden und von Delta Koffern davor blockiert. Ansonsten professioneller Service."
Cons: "for 3 years, 90% of my flights from Beijing were delayed or cancelled. Beijing International Airport is the worst airport ever. About my flight from Beijing to Munich this time, we were stranded on the runway INSIDE the plane for 5 hours w/o food and water for the first 4 hours!"
Cons: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Pros: "Seats were decent 36A, entertainment was very good, also paid full r WiFi access which made a 10 hour flight more bearable. Food was ok, nothing special."

Pros: "Taking off was good"
Cons: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Pros: "Leg room in Coach. Snack was actually a sandwich which carried us over until the next flight."
Cons: "Difficult to check in on the website."
Cons: "No boarding lines. Boarded late. I was not given enough time from my arriving flight. I had to spring the length of the airport and up and down stairs as the elevators had long lines. Maybe it was good it boarded late or I wouldn't have made it."
Cons: "Ticket written on Air Canada but Lufthansa was carrier. Not possible to check-in on line leaving very few choices for seating. Tried to check-in on Sunday for Monday flight -- system errors resulted and phone number provided by system only works M-Sat. My initial leg was on Iberia and they could not check me in for entire flight. Major scramble in Frankfort to resolve issues. Never again!"

Cons: "My seat didn't recline. I changed seats with my sister mid flight so I could sleep."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Crew are the best!"
Cons: "Very cramped seat on the TGV train. I will definitely choose and pay a seat on my own next time, rather than accepting the on picked by Air France... And it will be cheaper, too!"
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"

Cons: "Boarding clusterf..."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."

Pros: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort, food could have been better."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Pros: "The gate reps from CDG to MSP were professionals. The cabin crew on the Delta flight were exceptional! This was not my experience in Copenhagen with the Air France staff, they seemed to be self centered and rude."
Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"
Pros: "Air france crew at Mumbai Airport very rude and not supportive during checkin"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."

Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Pros: "Just a routine flight but done with perfect execution."

Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."

Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"

Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I didn’t actually liked the entertainment"
Cons: "I just didn’t enjoy the entrainment."
Cons: "Very small seats, space for nothing All the time delays and the horrible things is a lost luggage, even when there is enough time between flights."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."

Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Pros: "Flight arrived safely."
Cons: "Air France offered no help rebooking missed connection at JFK due to delay of more than 2 hours in arrival."
Cons: "bad smell around my seat"

Pros: "Liked the entertainment system and the fact that none of my luggage was lost on this trip. (Air Canada is a real pain to deal with on lost luggage.) Vegetarian meal was not gourmet, but good."
Cons: "Arrived late so next flight had to be rebooked. They did give us a food ticket though. I would give it an overall good rating (instead of okay) if it had not arrived late."
Cons: "Everything was sub-par, the food, entertainment, the crew responsiveness, I asked for two drinks and was told that I could only get one at a time... really? The crew was multilingual, which was great, but also very annoying to have to listen to announcements in 5 different languages. They could use media with standardized messaging and a choice of an appropriate language, but these would make too much sense I guess. This was the tightest coach I've ever flown in, the seat ergonomics was horrible."
Pros: "Modern planes, very comfy (Vancouver to Beijing), nice entertainment options, good food"
Cons: "super cranky flight attendants who looked and talked to us like we are idiots. Not just my feelings; the rest of my travel group of 7 agrees...."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the baggage claim team in Ottawa who took extra steps to ensure that a piece of my carry-on luggage that I forgot on the flight was returned to me safely and packaged with more care than I did for myself!"
Pros: "Quick services"
Cons: "Entertainer system overload twice - without move the key"
Cons: "I can't take the flight and I can't get my money back. It is horrible"
Pros: "Very nice flight"
Pros: "Treated well and basically enjoyable flight, which is saying something on an eleven hour flight."
Cons: "On the return flight we arrived an hour late, and though we were told that they were holding our connecting flight, it left on time, five minutes before we got to the gate."
Pros: "Crew was fine, food was fine, entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, which prompted the agent in Beijing to change my connection in Vancouver to 7 hours later!!! However, when I arrived in Vancouver, I made it to the gate of my original connection hoping to get on anyway, but because the agent in Beijing changed my connection before I left, my original connection was full and I was stuck in Vancouver airport for 5-6 hours. Complete waste of my time and completely unnecessary."
Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."
Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Entertainment, Crew, Boarding"
Cons: "Had to pay for food"
Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "Meal -"
Pros: "It's been a long time since I flew Air Canada . Great flight, blanket and pillow provided - seats, movies and and a lot of snacks. Worth the money for a long flight :)"
Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"
Pros: "I was barred from traveling, because Air Canada did not specify that an in-transit visa was necessary for South Africans traveling through their country to the US (where I am a graduate student at the University of Chicago). This blatant discrimination nearly caused me to be arrested and deported from China. It is also utterly unacceptable that Air Canada at no point tried to arrange an alternative flight and told to "just get another direct flight" as if buying plane tickets is in fact like taking the bus."

Cons: "Entertainment system. Spacious seating for economy class."
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Different announcements for boarding occurred almost simultaneously, making it hard to understand what was being said."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Other than the rude employee in Vancouver's ticket and baggage counter, I'd fly Air Canada all the time if I could. SO much better than any of the other commercial airlines."
Cons: "We had a 10 hour layover in Vancouver, which would have been fine except that we had to get our luggage and recheck it the following morning. This left us outside of security, unable to go anywhere to rest. No one expects to be comfortable when you spend the night in the airport, but this was worse. No where to sleep, no decent chairs to rest in. We weren't sure why, since our connecting flight to Seoul South Korea was also Air Canada, our luggage had to be picked up at baggage claim, held on until the following morning, then rechecked. The clerks at the Air Canada ticket and baggage counter were supposed to be opened at 9, but an incredibly rude employee snapped at me that he didn't have time to talk to me, that I'd just need to wait until 9:30 when they opened."
Pros: "Everything and I have alot if air miles under me.The flight crew was great. The aircraft was great."
Cons: "The food could have Ben a little been a little better."
Cons: "Terrible attitude to a customer (not me). I asked for a US custom form and it took them an hour and two people to do that."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."
Pros: "The flight attendant in Business class was absolutely fantastic. Very friendly, attentive, and fun. She made the trip special."
Cons: "Business were regular seats, but for such a small plane I understand."
Cons: "I can't fly in Canada with my US visa... so I am rejected. I think I should get more advises on about that from Kayak. I feel weird for Kayak choose my flight from Vancouver to Toronto and then to Raleigh. But I feel it would be ok if the ticket is financial. But, I was rejected by Air Canada because of that...And I need to pay more than 7000 RMB for another flight( there is $250 change flight fee). I feel terrible honestly! Time and money are what important for me and at last I've got neither of them."
Cons: "Terrible Air Canada ground service in Beijing Airport. Very slow service cause I missed the fly. Very bad attitude when I asked to change fly time."
Pros: "It was a nice flight up the coast and there were no problems"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like about the flight."
Cons: "Cannot watch movies in over 10 hours flight, rude service."
Pros: "professional crew members' services...."
Cons: "The food has room to improve...."
Pros: "Some good movies"
Cons: "Ran out of both dinner and breakfast options, for whatever was left."
Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"
Pros: "The flight was excellant. Something that horizon air needs to aspire too."
Pros: "on time boarding & arrivial"
Pros: "I liked the newer plane and cloth seats with mild colors. The chargers were a nice accessory but sacrificed leg movability which leads us to the negatives --->"
Cons: "Wow, I know that business means remaining competitive and as such any and all cost cutting measures are taken along with profit increase measures but............... Wow, talk about being crammed in like a sardine. I'm a male of average height and usually this is a blessing because it feels as though all vehicles, amusement rides and doorways are custom made just for me with the exception of Air Canada planes. I have never in my 300+ number of flights ever felt so confined in any seat. The distance from my knee to the seat in front of me was a claustrophobic finger length at best. Getting up to use the restroom required the other passengers to get up, and I had to stand and walk across their seats to get in/out. Luckily the lady next to me was nice enough and the flight was pleasant overall, but I will certainly think twice before booking another Air Canada flight!!!"
Pros: "Air Canada does it all well. There is a strong sense that every piece o the process has been checked and double checked. Good value for money. Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "In economy, the seats are small. Sigh. And the breakfast sausage was white. But otherwise, all good."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."
Pros: "I really liked how updated the plane was. The wine selection was very good. The entertainment had plenty of things to do - movies and TV shows were updated. I enjoyed the ice cream, that was a very nice treat!"
Cons: "I thought the food was not as good as the flight over to the UK - the mashed potatoes didn't look or taste like it had any real components at all and the bread was a little stale."
Pros: "Overall, it was a nice flight. The domestic and express flights had no food on offer (for free)..."
Cons: "Beyond the absurd 12 hour layover in Vancouver, upon my arrival in Atlanta, my luggage was lost. I'm still waiting on a call saying it was located."
Pros: "Great crew and good wine!"
Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"
Cons: "Return flight delayed. No Reason given"
Cons: "Canceled flight Toronto to vancouver BC missed our connecting flight, no option from airlines to provide accommodation or alter net transportation to final destination (Portland OR). Has to spend additional money and time traveling due to that. Supper inconveniences by it!"
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."
Cons: "As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Pros: "Air Canada has treated me excellently every time I've flown with them. However, this connection was through United, which, on my flight to LAX, was delayed 3 hours. I should have known how this would go."
Cons: "Since this flight was delayed, I would not make my connecting flight to Tokyo. Flights with Air Canada to Tokyo were all booked that day, and several days afterward. I canceled my flight and am awaiting refund. I booked with another airline. I am severely disappointed with United's behavior. I've flown out of several countries from various airlines, and the US and US-based airlines are the only flight with consistent delays. It's honestly embarrassing. And I suppose, while I'm complaining, I'll add--as someone with a severe peanut allergy, it was important that this flight was with Air Canada, who actually cares about my safety. That I had to miss my flight and book with another, potentially dangerous airline, added to my dissatisfaction."
