Cons: "More opportunities for beverage service"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not many entertainment choices"

Waited at the airport for 2 hours , no customer service. then called about 10 times , waited on the line another 1-2 hours on multiple calls. had to get a hotel for 2 nights , and they still want to charge me $800+ for another flight - super disappointed!"
Pros: "Decent entertainment but the headphones provided were bad."
Cons: "Flight attendants were terrible. No name tags. Sat in the back gossiping the whole flight. Didn’t even bring around water after serving the “meal” right after takeoff."

Cons: "Kayak’s app didn’t update the flight schedule that has changed to one hour ahead. I almost lost my flight because of this"
Pros: "There was nothing to like!"
Cons: "Lack of customer support. Irrational, illogical, destructive of my pleasure trip to Colombia. Problem: I was forbidden to board the plane. I was at the Check-in counter at 16:00 for a flight departing at 16:35. I was denied boarding to a plane that was there waiting at ths very small regional airport. Result: I lost time and money (non refundable ticket). I feel this was a rip-off!. I needed to get to a connection in Bogota. I had to rush and get land transportation to Bogota so I wouldn’t miss my connecting flight to the US."
Cons: "Avianca has no respect for passengers, they chance your flight without notice, lie, change your seat assignment without notice or train"
Cons: "Delay on boarding due to a change of crew. After all boarded, push-back took too long. Overall delay, 45 min."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "A few broken things in the bathroom gave the impression that the plane wasn't well maintained"
Pros: "Our original connection was very close, but when we got to the airport for our first flight, they bumped us up to an earlier flight so we had plenty of time for our international connection."
Pros: "Food, entertainment"
Cons: "The crew was absolutely horrible, both on ground and on board, they had no clue was customer service is, very unexpected from a big company like this..."

Cons: "everything on the ground one the plane pre and post flight"
Pros: "Nothing about this trip was good"
Cons: "I booked business class ticket and they changed it to economy and didn't tell me also didn't adjust my fare. (Last minute carrier change they told me) I had to fly in the very back of the plane next to a nauseating bathroom. It was horrifying. From Brazil to USA."
Pros: "Quick boarding, friendly crew, good airplane, and flight on time, which allowed us to make a very short connection ( less than an hour between flights)."
Cons: "Seats recline very little, food options limited, and flavour of food was not very good."
Cons: "They boarded the plane before the doors to the plane were open and so we were in the walkway freezing for at least 10 minutes, which I believe is illegal. Don't board the plane unless you can actually GET ON. The crew also was a special kind of rude."
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "The delay and boarding"
Cons: "Or initial flight was delayed by 2 hours. This meant we missed our connecting flight in Columbia. The airline booked us on a connection that meant a 10 hour layover in Columbia. No help no options nothing. Terrible service. There was another carrier leaving at a time that would have helped us but we weren't able to have this option."
Pros: "Pilot excellent even in bad weather"
Cons: "Food very bad"
Pros: "The airplane is confortable"
Cons: "When We proceed to check-in to checking our bags, we have an issue with the weight. So, to compensate, we remove some itens from our bag and put on our carry-on bags. The employees of the Avianca realizing that told me that I need to weight my Carry on bag. I never see something like that before, I ask to her if everybody need to weight the carry on bag, She told me yes, but I stay on Checking places for a long time and I don't see anybody weight theirs carry on bags. Basically the company want to get my Money forced me to pay for extra weight."
Cons: "Only a few very all movies to chose from on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "I like the seat comfort and viewing screens on the seat in front of the passengers which allows for the long trip overseas to pass more easily without appearing to be as long as the trip actually takes."
Pros: "When attempting to make the connection flight in Columbia, I was informed that I was being placed on standby due to overbooking by the airline. I was traveling with my service dog also. What is exactly am I supposed to do in Bogota, Columbia for an unexpected additional 24 hours? I had no money, and my credit card wouldn't work there. This was the worst airline experience in my life. Absolutely horrible. I will never travel with Avianca again. Avianca staff spoke hardly any English, so I couldn't hardly communicate with them either. Horrible."
Cons: "Almost one hour late to leave GRU. Flight Stats showed the delay more than one hour before the company say something. They boarded everyone late and kept us in the plane waiting for a conection flight that they already knew would arrive late."
Pros: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."
Cons: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."
Cons: "I waited 3 hours to do the check in and after that the fly got delayed twice."
Cons: "Pessoal despreparado, levei meu cachorro de suporte emocional, me colocaram em uma poltrona qualquer, apertada. Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao. O meu voo foi cancelado e me colocAram em outro horas depois, um transtorno, e para completar estou sem minhas malas, porque nao sabiam o que tinha acontecido. Estou em orlando sem nada! Nao recomendo!"
Cons: "The food is terrible. The crew is not friendly."
Pros: "The departure of airplane it was delayed 1.30 minutes, that means, I lostl my fly to Lima, the services on ground for the Avianca's airline personal was terrible, no information at all."

Pros: "Business class priority boarding and priority luggage handling: both were efficient as was check-in. Cheerful and pleasant staff."
Cons: "Minor issue with partially malfunctioning tray table. Long queues at Colombian immigration in Bogotá."
Pros: "Viajo mucho y Avianca es mi aerolinea preferida, las asistentes de vuelo mientras no sean de Costa Rica, son muy amables, las costarricenses son muy pedantes y groceras y las Colombianas las mejores, lindas, amables, pacientes."
Cons: "Eu estou arrasada, eu recebi meus emails todos em inglês, tive um grave problema familiar e me confundi com a data do voo, perdi o voo e a avianca queria me cobrar mais 2.000,00 para poder viajar no dia seguinte, estou péssima, perdi uma viagem de trabalho, onde está a humanidade de voces? Onde esta a honestidade? Cobrar penalidades? Ja não é penalidade suficiente eu ter perdido meu voo, ter passado por todo esse constrangimento? Mais dois mil reais só para remarcar meu voo? Capitalistas nojentos, voces contribuem para a piora do mundo!"
Cons: "I'm writing this review in behalf of my mother, who had a nightmare in Lima, Peru. Avianca changed her flight without prior notice (email or phone). She is a 72 years old woman that had a stroke three years ago, can't be exposed to any stressful situation, she needed to take medication at 9:30am LIFETIME! They didn't asked if she had a health condition, they just decided to change her flight from the one at 10:00am to the one at 5:00pm. Maybe they would be able to guess it as she was so nervous, she showed worried and confused in the counter where they informed her the "news" during check-in process. She arrived 3 1/2 hours in advance to the airport in order to avoid flight stress. She doesn't have family in Lima, so they sent her to a nice hotel (but far), arrived at 10:15am so she took her medication late. Very stressful episode for me and my family after trying to contact her as the hotel didn't let her call us (Avianca said she would have an international courtesy call). My mother called a friend of mine informing her the situation, that is how I knew about this. She didn't ate correctly that day as her food has to be low sodium. They should have arranged her flight in a same group plane and avoid old persons (with conditions) wait 9 hours. There are no words to express my frustration as nobody could help me in Avianca customer service. They should have priorities and consideration for elder people as this kind of situations are harmful for them, their blood pressure and their hearts! CERO COMMON SENSE!"
Pros: "Bag drop-off was quick and efficient for those checked-in online. Clean modern aircraft (A330) with decent space for economy class. Not spacious, but not cramped either. I felt comfortable for the entire six hour flight without leaving my seat. 2-4-2 seat layout in economy is pleasant. Food was satisfactory. From prior experience I know that the business class seats on Avianca's A330 are very comfortable with a lie flat 180 degree recline. Luggage delivery in Bogota is super-fast generally, although in this case it did not matter given the long immigration delay."
Cons: "Entertainment system took over 90 minutes to boot up properly, which also meant in-seat lighting was not working for this time. Immigration arrivals processing in Bogota took too long. Passengers were arriving without forms completed and immigration officers allowed them to fill them out at the immigration desks instead of sending them away. Queue control was unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Large Plane A330"
Cons: "Boarding process, plane needs maintenance, things like tables in economy are in bad shape, input USB broken"
Pros: "Muito confortável. Boarding muito rápido. Muito bem atendido a bordo."
Cons: "Infelizmente o serviço de bordo não pode ser apreciado, mas entendo que é pela segurança dos passageiros."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "To drop the bag was very messy"
Pros: "All the staff was great."
Cons: "I was trying to upgrade for business and the front desk told me Can only be done 24 hours. What diferentes it makes if I paid in front desk or by the phone?"

Cons: "Seats very tight."
Cons: "the cabin and seats are old and seems dirty"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
Pros: "Neat, polite and orderly. Great food!"
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Strange use of curtains upfront during flight. I was asked to check my carryon for free to help out with boarding, but then had to wait longer to get the bag in baggage claim. It was the last bag of my checked bags to show up. Checked carryon bags should have a higher priority to return."
Pros: "Friendly and correct cabin crew."
Cons: "Leg space. There was very little leg space. One hour before the flight departure they were already announcing 'last call' on the airport screens."
Pros: "This non-stop flight was wonderful. The aircraft is comfortable, the whole flight was smoothly, even though it's fifteen hours flight."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Almost all seats on planes are tightly crammed together."
Cons: "More options of TV shows to watch."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags. Amateur and inefficient company. Avoid at all cost."
Cons: "I couldn’t fly because at check in they asked me to pay for my 2 luggages and I couldn’t afford it so they let me out of my flight and now they don’t want to return my money. Worse airline I’ve ever seen. I’ve been flying international for 20 years and never saw a flight you have to pay for Luggage"
Pros: "Not much I can think of"
Cons: "Undisclosed charges for bags and a check on that lasted over 30 minutes and my entire family ogn6 people were scattered throughout plane with absolutely no effort to put young kids next to parents"
Pros: "Everything is amazing"
Cons: "After getting off the shuttle to board the plane via stairs, men at the bottom and top of the stairs both stopped everyone and refused anyone to board. We were stuck on the tarmac for around 2-3 minutes. No entertainment options during the flight. No free food. Only water."
Pros: "Crew good, disembarking slow."
Cons: "A drink and/or snack."
Pros: "the crew was not friendly on boarding, or during the trip. I like it when they great you and say welcome aboard."

Pros: "yo tenia comida kosher y no me la dieron"
Pros: "Confortable seats, flight on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant kept talking all night with two passengers. I could hear them even with ear plugs. When I finally was able to sleep, she didnt wake me up for breakfast even when I especifically asked to be awakened. And than replied that she wasnt able to wake me. Awful service for executive."
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"
Pros: "The leg place and reclining chair"
Cons: "offering some free snacks and soda (3 hour flight, other than water, everything else is charged). An online entertainment system that actually works."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good, my device connected immediately, and the movie started right away (while the boarding process was being completed)."
Cons: "More vegetarian options in the menu."
Cons: "The temperature should be a bit warmer"

Pros: "Crew was extremely unfriendly"
Cons: "Better service. Train your people. Learn from azul airlines"
Pros: "latam airlines only wants your money, if you miss your flight they will book your seat to someone else, you will be stranded, and they will not reschedule or refund. i now live in the airpot and I sold my car for this and I just want to die now"
Cons: "less ignorant/greedy management"
Pros: "They were very kind!"
Cons: "Probably the space we need more room, so we could stretch our legs and be more comfy!"
Cons: "I've flown a lot of different business class flights in my time and these are the narrowest I've ever seen. I am not overweight but I felt very restricted in these seats. Add to the narrow seats is the design of the seat and armrests themselves and you don't have much space at all. No way I was going to be able to work on my laptop in this LATAM business class seat."
Cons: "Lack of food!! LATAM you are doing it wrong"
Pros: "I liked almost all!!!"
Cons: "The sandwich (cool meal)... The may improve it..."
Pros: "Said Paulo airport was chaos but flight was great"

Pros: "The crew was very kínd!"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Cons: "Flight delayed well over an hour, Airport stuff unhelpful, Very below average."
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."
Cons: "It was nasty, disordered. Bad experience"
Pros: "I would fly Latam again, good service and I saved a lot of money"
Cons: "Would like a lil bit more legroom"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, as expected in business class"
Cons: "1. Entertaining not working Rebooting didn’t fix it Nobody offered any alternative 2. As the last seat, NONE of my meal options were available. Surely they could hv started fm the back at least once to offset this handicap?"
Pros: "there was way too little leg room and the seats went back too far. I love LAN and LATAM because the crew and cudtomer service are always EXCELLENT."
Cons: "Standing too long before boarding at 2am!"
I missed it because of the delay in the other flights. Attendants in the airport sent me from one side to the other many times due to poor information.
Pros: "It was a fluid flight"
Cons: "That it wasn't late"
Cons: "If I had at least boarded the flight I could have given feedback. But I didn't get in! I spent 6 hours at the airport waiting for my flight, with check in done and missed the flight. And on my ticket I didn't have the gate number or the terminal, the goalkeeper said he would let me know when the flight was leaving, the hours passed and I didn't hear him calling me. until near the departure time I went to ask the employee and he said that the flight had left a long time ago and that the entrance was on the opposite side of where I was and they did not warn me ... now I'm here at the airport with no place to sleep, waiting for my other flight with a connection to Brasilia that leaves 6 am where I will wait for almost 12 hours to be able to get home. remembering that my flight from São Paulo to Cuiabá was 3 hours long and I will have to wait for almost 24 hours. A goalkeeper was super arrogant with me, gave me no support and even told me that if I was in the United States I would be waiting for 3 days at the airport sleeping on the floor, so it was ok."
Pros: "Very easy process of boarding, flight and leaving the plane."
Cons: "Besides water and juice, with a small pack of crackers, nothing else is offered, unless you pay for sandwiches or other drinks."
Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."
Pros: "Nice crew. Okay seats."
Cons: "4 hour delay with no information. Just horrible in this day and age."
Cons: "I had two USB chargers at my seat, but neither worked :("
Cons: "O check in em guarulhos é péssimo e mal organizado. Mais de 40 minutos na fila, mesmo na fila do passageiro frequente."
Pros: "All great n crew very helpful"
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."
Cons: "Gol app is terrible and buggy."
Pros: "Very stable flight New airplane Excellent flight"
Cons: "Better food / snacks Boarding through finger and not by remote bus"

Cons: "Poderia servir refeições e vender bebidas. O voo não é tão curto assim."
Cons: "More efficient check in. Long wait at gate."
Cons: "More efficient check in. Long wait at gate."
Cons: "Horrible experience. With a CONFIRMED seat with GOL airlines- and checking in two hours before flight- I was told flight was oversold and they did not have ANY seats on the plane. REBOOKED on flight from different airport two hours away! Awful!!!!!"
Cons: "Viendo que no podrían acomodar tres adultos y dos bebés en una fila de tres asientos por falta de mascarillas de oxígeno, en lugar de reacomodar gente, nos hicieron descender del avión, no les importó mi bebé ni mi esposa que está embarazada, el peor episodio viajando, el supervisor fue descortés, poco profesional y de verdad tiró por los suelos la buena impresión que tenía de GOL"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful, overall awesome. Comfort level was great. Appreciated the few small extras that came with our GOL premium upgrade purchase."
Cons: "Seriously, a sandwich and some indistinguishable "dessert". Honestly, I can't tell you what the 2nd item was on the try, even after trying it. I get that the flight was only 3 hours long, but a sandwich is not dinner. And, it tasted horrible. I took 3 bites and couldn't stomach the rest. It was laughable that they offered wine with it. Had I realized this was the option, I would have brought my own food. My husband, who eats literally everything, couldn't even eat it, and it was a cheese sandwich. How hard is it to make a bad cheese sandwich? Well, apparently, GOL knows how to do it."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful, overall awesome. Comfort level was great."
Cons: "There was no entertainment provided, and besides extra legroom, no real benefits of paying the extra for GOL premium. This is also the first time I have ever had to pay for luggage on an International flight, very disappointing."
Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"
Cons: "Long lines of confused people trying to figure out which is the right one for them. Need more people giving orientation as people arrive to GRU airport."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Missed my appointment."
Pros: "No horário... bagagens já estavam na esteira quando chegamos"
Pros: "Traveling from JFK TO GRU. Fight got delay by 2 hrs. Arrived at GRU 8:28. Got the luggage in 20-25 mins. Run like crazy to the check in 15 min. Got there by 9:15 only to find out it’s been closed for checking bags. I beg , implore and there’s nothing to be done. Pay extra for 2 extra bags, for what? Nothing. Lost about $75 altogether non refundable. SUCKS."
Cons: "What’s to like? Because of 30 they couldn’t added mire luggage. Begging imploring it didn’t matter. Ok I didn’t like loosing $75. Who’s gonna refund? Nobody. SUCKS"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "I’m time quick to board food and drinks free"
Pros: "On time departure, very nice n clean interior, fast luggage delivery at CWB"
Cons: "Hardly talk n understand English"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Cons: "space on the seats, and between the seats"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Plane itself was fine, fairly spacious and comfortable."

Pros: "Crew members were helpful"
Cons: "Food was bad and didn't taste fresh. No tea to drink either. Boarding times were usually late but arrival times were as expected. There's no entertainment at all in the planes. No screens, no movies, no nothing."

Cons: "Charged for coffee. No in-flight entertainment, crew was not all that friendly"
Pros: "No entertainment available. No monitors on seats..."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Rio"
Cons: "I didn’t wanted to check my carry on. But the man at the gate decided that I had to check the carry on, and took it from my hand without question. When I went boardered the airplane there was a lot of spaces in the overhead bins."
Pros: "The pilot gave all the information pleasantly. It was easy to find my seat and everyone was compliant with COVID-19 rules/restrictions."

Pros: "The crew and the duration of the flight"

Pros: "Flight going to Cabo was delayed and coming back to California was delayed. Ridiculous!!!!"
Cons: "Be on time"
Cons: "Offered entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was cancelled and we missed our friends 70th birthday celebration."
Cons: "Staff at the ticket counter were curt, rude, and patronizing. They were ill equipped to deal with the situation."
Cons: "Getting the crew to fly on original date of 12/31 instead of having to scramble to find hotel on other side of BI in Hilo on New Years eve. 24 hour delay and then giving the last row of seats with a screaming baby that another group kept walking back to our section to "grace" us with such melodies!"
Pros: "Great crew. Falafel meal was delish."
Cons: "My seat was broken and didn’t recline. I booked first class bc of a bad back, so I count on that. Salad was wilted and gross. Plane didn’t have plug ins for phone! Entertainment system didn’t work well- movie kept buffering. Sky texting wouldn’t work either."
Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"
Pros: "Crew was kind!"
Cons: "Seats bigger"
Pros: "leg room was decent I always love the in flight interactive map with routes and nearest cities."
Cons: "Headphone jack for media watching did not function properly."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "WiFi was not gogo; entertainment system didn’t work - no audio. They rebooted it multiple times but it would not work. No compensation was offered and the entertainment in the app did not work either."
Pros: "Attentive Flight Attenants"
Cons: "Flight attendants completely unresponsive when overhead space was filled by a lot of backpacks that supposed to go under seats. Also, kept selling alcohol to people who were clearly drunk and were obnoxious and loud the whole trip."

Pros: "The trip was fast and efficient. The crew was very friendly and we had no issues."
Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful."
Cons: "Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Cons: "Suitcase was damaged during AA/BA FLIGHT from LAX TO DUS"
Pros: "The first leg had awesome pasta.Then, on the 2nd leg, Philly to Denver, they had a "pay for meal" option for turkey with Chutney sandwich - again, delicious. I should add that the service was very good as well."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I went to British airways to check in and the sent me to American. It was the worst aircraft I've seen for an intl flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Upgrade from cloth seats was nice."
Cons: "The food wasn't terribly tasty or filling. Also, it was freezing - with a blanket, sweater and scarf on."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "No tv's for such a long flight. One tv on the ceiling every so often does not qualify for entertainment.. flight was delayed for 3 hours. Never American Airlines again"
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "It got me there."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and switched gates 3 times. I'm pretty sure they swapped planes as there wasn't any in flight entertainment. Flight overall was fine but unhappy with service and updates at airport."
Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours."
Pros: "At least the entertainment was good while I waited for my food."
Cons: "I asked for a chicken option meal and the flight attendant was at the end of my area of sitting (the front half) and left to the back and said he would return. I waited and waited and nothing while everyone ate. I ran the flight attendant button(many many many times) and no one came. I didn't get up because why am I going to chase someone down? After about 30 mins or more later someone finally passed by that was going to ask for trash. I asked for my food and they apologized and brought back a pasta option and said they were sorry that they ran out of chicken. So I was made to wait for half an hour while everyone ate to NOT get what I wanted and be forgotten about?! Unacceptable. Took me another 30 mins to get my appetite back since I was so upset. Also, our flight left an hour later!!! No one said anything to us about why we were late. They accommodated those with connecting flights in the US but still. What is going on?"
Cons: "My flight was pushed back and I was never notified and I had to reschedule my flight completely from Vegas to Frankfurt"
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Pros: "Terminal in JFK was on not crowded, flight was not completely full."
Cons: "No mid flight snack"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating. One of the flight attendants encouraged me to take advantage of a seat that had more space so that I was more comfortable. Also when I casually talked about how I didn't get to eat before the flight she gave me two of the cinnamon crackers that are offered during the flight. This was very thoughtful and considerate of her. It was the little things and the attendants attention to detail that provided me an excellent experience."
Pros: "The entertainment and food was great, boarding was easy."
Cons: "A crew member was a little rude to me the entire duration of the flight."
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."
Pros: "It was nice to be on a plane where we could sit with just the two of us.I was finally able to sleep on the long segment with the aid of sleeping aids."
Cons: "The crew seemed like they didn't really care about the passengers. I even heard one comment,"Last call must have been made looking at the amount of wine thats been used." It was not very professional."
Pros: "TV screens on the back of each seat with tv and movie selections"
Cons: "Crew member at the gate told me my perfectly sized carry on bag was too big and it HAD to be checked.. wasn't too happy about that as I purposely brought a carry on to avoid Baggerly claim."
Pros: "I didn't fly through Charlotte on my way home. I went through Philadelphia which was shorter."
Pros: "Great entertainment system."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "Everything was great. I rated low on food and entertainment bc I didn't partake"
Pros: "Space security manners"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmack for two hours due to lighting get, while the Delta flights continued on as usual. This was an American Airlines policy."
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."
Flight was cancelled on the departure day. We had to drive an extra 250 km to make it to another flight that was also cancelled. Finally booked on another flight that was also delayed 1h30...weather was fine on all flight. Every delay because of technical issues. Horrible experience.
More delays and almost got diverted to another city. Didn't get set up for text notifications.
We were flying to go skiing in Whistler, and our skis were left in Toronto. So, that's a big bummer. Only drinks were served without a fee, and only one for a five-hour flight. Takeoff was delayed two hours because water pipes were freezing in Toronto, even though the current weather in Toronto was not unusual. But, the crew was friendly, and the baggage guy hooked us up with the means for Air Canada to reimburse us for our ski rentals.
First plane from Edmonton was late causing me to miss connection to Kamloops. Had to rebook for Kamloops leaving Dec 25 @1:30pm….17 hrs in Vancouver …not happy

Cons: "My girlfriend’s Tv stopped to work in the beginning of the flight."
Pros: "hilarious crew and they were very helpful"
Cons: "seating was so uncomfortable and i'm petite/slim. the bathroom wreaked and the toilet seat would not stand up alone"
Cons: "There were several announcements to download the Air Canada app in order to access in flight entertainment. They must have been 5-6 announcements about this. WiFi access was to start after take off in order to use the app. but was never available."
Pros: "My flight was canceled"
Pros: "Tre crew was fantastic"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful on a very full airplane. They did their best to check on connections to let us know if we were going to miss our flights or not."

Pros: "Our daughter's first time traveling alone. She slept most of the time and she said it was fine and comfortable enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and then once up in the air, passengers were told the food cart didn't make it the 6 hour flight so no food or snacks for the entire flight from Montreal to San Francisco."
Pros: "The flight was average. Small plane, short flight, no food or beverage service. Pretty average and nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Lots of choices for entertainment. Our tickets were booked as a family of 3 and we did get placed together this time in a row of 3 seats."
Cons: "Nothing was bothersome. Everything was satisfactory."
Pros: "That we got back safe during a snow storm."
Cons: "The staff were not friendly. I politely tried to give two flight attendants my garbage as they were collecting and because they already passed me they looked at me and ignored me. It’s also crazy that you pay so much for a flight and then have to pay for luggage and a meal when it’s a 4-5 hour flight. Flight was delayed twice. Which I can understand due to weather."
Pros: "Seat selection."
Cons: "The meals didn't taste that great."
Pros: "Well designed comfortable sleeping Pods"
Cons: "English subtitles for movie collections"
Pros: "Loved the staff. Very friendly. Planes were clean and most of all, got to me my destination. On time!"

Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable. Had a couple knees in my back."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and everyone missed their connecting flights. Air Canada put us on British Airways instead but did not inform them and when we went to check in at the desk they did not have us in the system which stressed everyone out. We eventually got on the plane but I had to sit in the very uncomfortable middle seat rather than in my chosen seat by the window."
Pros: "On-time, friendly attendants, efficient boarding, comfortable flight, good entertainment choices, well-paced frequency of food and beverage service."
Cons: "Meal was mediocre."
Cons: "I only had one gripe about this flight and my one other flight on Air Canada Rouge; the overhead bins are very poorly designed. I purchased a carry on bag specifically to meet their regs, yet it had it go in the bin longways, taking up a ton of room. The bins are tall, which is wasted space, when what they really need is another 1-2" in depth."
Pros: "Service was on time & staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight back, we had to wait on the airplane for a good hour before we could disembark. But that was due to heavy traffic at the airport and not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "Espaço para as pernas na classe econômica foi suficiente para mim, a tripulação foi cordial, o avião era novo à parte de entretenimento foi boa."
Cons: "Quando embarcamos, quase todos os espaços para as malas já estavam ocupados, o espaço lateral das poltronas era muito apertado, a reclinação era péssima, praticamente inexistente. Quando decolamos, começou a cair água na nossa cabeça. O funcionário responsável disse que era do ar condicionado e era normal. A comida era ruim, sem gosto e com acompanhamentos que não combinavam, por exemplo no meu caso era frango com uma salada de vagens e pepino. Fora o horário das refeições, quase não era oferecido bebidas em um voo de 10 horas."
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Very rude air crew who treats you as a bus passenger, does not completely listen to your requests, on business class. I also had my return connection flight cancelled and moved 6 hours ahead of the original one, which made me just wait that long at the airport."
Cons: "Customer service was horrible"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Meals came out at great times. Food was good but not great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and started late, making our flight delayed, which made us miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "After crossing in a 787 from Zurich this small older jet to Austin looked and felt like 15 years ago. Bathroom was bad for a 6'2" guy."
Pros: "Crew is polite but A c should be ashamed to herd people in such tight spaces that are only for cattle. People were scwarming Fidgety Quite terrible Please no longer recommend the ' rouge ' flights to people Regular flights are ok but the rouge They should be ashamed of themselves and you to for selling them"
Pros: "I had an exit row seat so the extra room was much appreciated."
Cons: "Aircanada's method of multi zone boarding is a mess. Everyone queues up and blocks whatever zones actually can get on. The seat next to the exit door was freezing. The food was horrible. I understand airplane food is bad but this is some of the worst I have had. Our flight our was fine. There was no inflight entertainment for an 8+ hour flight - you had to rent iPads which is crazy these days. We were late to takeoff due to airport traffic which isn't the airlines fault but then because the customs baggage scanning system went down at Montreal my husband missed his connection - was eventually put on my flight after two trips to ticketing and three calls to aircanada but his bag never arrived in Chicago. We are still waiting for it."
Pros: "Shirt fight, friendly attendants, provided entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing in particular. Everything was adequate, though the carry on space was limited."
Pros: "Zoned boarding"
Cons: "Food limited and must be purchased. Entertainment must have downloaded app."
Pros: "The crew was so good and friendly. The entertainment options were good, some variety. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Any additional amenity cost extra. No inflight snacks."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, very tie space between seats, very slow to get off from the airplane in the arrival. Cero entertainment video center."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No air conditioning made it uncomfortable"
Pros: "The staff were apologetic and understanding. Everyone felt bad for the staff because they had nothing to do with the nightmare."
Cons: "Not only that I missed my connecting flight, when I was actually able to board 24 hours later the boarding experience was a complete nightmare with long lines and completely disorganized boarding system. I am curious to see whether I will get compensated for the missed hotel accommodations in Amsterdam. Keeping my fingers crossed. All to say, my last trip with Air Canada."
Pros: "Logan checking with own security checkpoint Boston to Toronto tv great Staff professional"
Pros: "The plane was new and pretty clean"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Crew was useless. No organization."
Cons: "Only in Canada they make you remove headset for takeoff and landing."
Pros: "professional crew members' services...."
Cons: "The food has room to improve...."
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: "I liked the fact that it was a non-stop flight."
Cons: "There were so many things I didn't like. First of all, the departure time was delayed by 30 minutes. Not cool. Secondly, the plane itself felt very small and old. It was very cold inside the plane which made the ride very uncomfortable. Thirdly, there was absolutely no in-flight entertainment on this flight, making it a very boring experience. I would not recommend this kind of air travel!"
