Nice short flight. No problems!😀

Pros: "Customer service was excellent"
Pros: "A full complément of movies to choose from"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Boarding confusion"
Pros: "The crew. Customer service."
Pros: "I made it safely to LAX"
Cons: "We waited in the plane on the tarmac for an hour. My boarding pass did not have a seat assignment, when I approached Alaska agents at the gate, they were rude and dismissive. Arrived late to LAX. Alaska offers free texting & entertainment while in the air it didn’t work with my iPhone."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and they really made the flight so much better. I loved how short the flight was - just 58 minutes from Vancouver to Portland."
Cons: "This is a turbo-prop commuter flight, so it's fairly noisy; also, there are no USB charge ports or entertainment system."
Pros: "The flight delayed but the crew was really helping! Huge thank to the lady served in the economy class AS2239 on March 4th from Vancouver to Seattle. I was not able to catch the next flight without her helping."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "none"
Cons: "Cause the flight was canceled I have to call the airlines to get the refund, which not 100% refund, it makes me disappointed"
Cons: "Super flight"
Pros: "Great crew, nice plane"
Cons: "More varieties of snacks"
Pros: "I liked that when due to a medical reason, I was able to be given the option of rebooking my flight even though there would be a penalty and extra charges and I would need to pay the difference."
Cons: "When I called to rebook my flight within the year and about 3 months in advance of the desired date, unfortunately Latam made multiple errors and also told me that rebooking flights only are eligible for more expensive flights. Even though there were other less expensive flights that I was able to find and see online, they insisted the only flight available had a price difference of $4,000+ dollars. the original ticket was around $550 so this was absurd. Not helpful at all, how frustrating."
Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour and no one could explain why."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed, may of been beyond the pilots control. Scrambled seating arrangements."
Cons: "Seat was broken and would not recline so incredibly uncomfortable for red eye. I was freezing (though I’m often more chilly than others). Not great food options."
Pros: "The crew was terrific"
Cons: "The long delay was miserable. Although we would rather be on aircraft that was running like it should. We were dead at that point in our journey and the long delay was very difficult."
Pros: "Even though there was no TV screen in the headrest, we were all provided with IPads to view. The controls on the IPad were quicker than the in headset TV's. The seats were comfortable and we all received a flight packet that included a toothbrush, eye shades, ear plugs and a pair of socks for our comfort! Blankets and pillows were in our seats when we arrived."
Cons: "I missed being able to see our flight path. On a long flight it's difficult to keep track of where we are and now much longer we will be in the air without the flight tracker. My baggage was misplaced, so I was delayed by needing to fill out forms for lost luggage. Thankfully, it was located before I reached my connecting flight."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Pros: "The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "Skinny seats, no free dinner or snacks for a 5+ hr flight, cabin crew constantly bumping into my shoulder while I sat in an isle seat (I’m not a big guy). This was my first time flying Alaska Airlines, and the experience was less compared to Hawaiian Airlines flying the same routes."
Pros: "The plane had far more leg room than typical airlines which was a pleasant surprise. It was newer than most, the flight attendants were polite and accommodating and the ride was smooth!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Rude crew."
Pros: "Flew Alaska air - Plenty of leg room and much more than any qantas domestic flight!"
Pros: "Seats are ok."
Cons: "The flight schedule was delayed two times."
Pros: "We were never given the seats next to each other that we booked"
Cons: "My daughter is too young to sit alone and we booked the reservation at the same time one booking"
Pros: "Hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "My luggage that was to be loaded in the cargo area of the plane never was put on the plane. No clothes, no shoes, no medications, no gps radio equiptment, and no special fishing equiptment, (as I was on a sportfishing vacation). Really, Really dissappointed."
Cons: "We can't get boarding pass in Taipei. Hence, we have to go through Canadian immigration process to obtain boarding pass, then enter US immigration zone for US immigration process before get on board."
Pros: "Nice and friendy crew, and it seems I can always hear the pilots on Alaska. On other airlines, they are hard to hear. Alaska pilots were pleasant to listen to, as well. Comfortable seats and good leg room at back of plane."
Cons: "My seat was full of crumbs when I boarded, hair was sticking out of the magazine in front of me. I wish there was some cleaning/disinfecting of the plane prior to a new flight boarding. It's flu season and that's exactly what I got 2 days after flying home. I gave the food and entertainment 1 star as I didn't use either. Should be a NA option."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Can’t really think of anything"
Pros: "N/A. Because of bad weather on Vancouver Island, my flight to Vancouver was delayed two hours and I missed my 230p flight to Seattle. Alaska had no other flights available from Vancouver that would get me to San Diego and other later flights that day from other airlines were over booked. I stayed the night and flew out the next morning on a direct flight to San Diego. The flight was fine. The flight crew was nice, they offered us drinks and snacks and the air condition worked. The reason I included the AC is sometimes it doesn't work and that's miserable. There's not too much else to add."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and there was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was only an hour flight, so there was no entertainment. And the seats didn't recline."
Pros: "charging outlet"
Cons: "light delay. no service."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Wish there was a direct non stop flight to SMF from YVR"
Pros: "Small plane and short flight. Not too much to expect other than get there on time which they did"
Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "Flight attendants were quick and efficient during a medical emergency."
Cons: "We had two hard landings (in Seattle and again in Ontario - same crew) and hit turbulence coming in toward Ontario that literally forced a flight attendant to her knees in the aisle."
Pros: "The overhead bins seemed to have more space than usual for non-checked bags."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and the flight was late. This was already an evening flight, so the delay meant that I missed the last public transit train once I was home and had to pay for a cab."
Pros: "My snowboard didn't make the connecting flight, customer service had it delivered to my house the very next morning."
Pros: "Flight was quick with wonderful views of the San Juan islands"

Cons: "The plane was tiny. Everyone had to check standard carry-on luggage"
Pros: "Bad attitude, no info, then annoyed when we asked them anything. All the passengers kept cool and calm. Staff was terrible."

Cons: "We were not sitting together...we are both seniors and my husband has only flown 2 before....our seats were booked together and I am assuming due to our flight cancelled on Jan 8 and rescheduled on the 9th that could be why. No room to stretch your legs, for those of us who have circulation problems...."
Cons: "I checked into my flight 24 hours in advance, got my boarding pass and everything. 12 hours before, I double check the boarding time and my flight has been cancelled. I got no notification of this, luckily I happened to check on my own."
Cons: "WestJet needs more checkin machines and shorter security lines. I arrived at the airport with a boarding pass and it took over an hour to get to the gate"
Cons: "Having to divert to Calgary for broken radio. I’m positive there is enough redundancy in radio system to be down 1 radio."
Pros: "Crew overworked but pleasant and doing their best. Self check in works well with assistance"
Cons: "Management decisions meant assigned crew arrived after our flight supposed to depart. Needed 1 more person to service passengers. We waited a long time after serving started to get served. We did not know that food could be preordered online and served soon after takeoff. No TV screens on back of chairs...had to rent device to see movies. Have app but not able to book and get points. Wrote to WJ for help but oo response"

Pros: "I was 8 mins late to check in."
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"

Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Was not able to travel because of the virus, I was suppose to visit my parents"
Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with the airline and its services."
Pros: "Excellent selection of movies and the dinner was very good."
Cons: "Breakfast eggs and mashed potatoes were wet and too watery."
Pros: "Everything was fine excellent."
Cons: "Everything was excellent."

Cons: "They charged me extra 14 USD for checking in, I had never being charged extra for that."

Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."
Cons: "Good attention in food services."
Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."
Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"
Cons: "A strong snowstorm prevented me from arriving to the airport on time (highway was closed). Flight was at 3:15. After over 5 hours on the highway I finally arrived to the airport at 2:27 and the Aeromexico counters were empty. A lady from Lufthansa told me the flight had just closed and suggested that I call aeromexico’s phone number. I did that and the gentleman on the phone told me I should go to the check-in counters. I mentioned they were empty and he had no other suggestions. After an hour on the airport and on the phone with no progress I booked a trip with United and traveled home."

Cons: "So Late"
Pros: "I enjoyed it"
Cons: "Good overall service"
Pros: "On time. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Food too salty"
Cons: "No TV on board or Wfi GoGo Entertainment (as promised in brochure said inside plane)"
Pros: "Everything else was average."
Cons: "The gate crew was rude and was unclear as to what was wanted. We were paged overhead to another gate after we had checked in and were given attitude at boarding time for not checking in again. The flight was hot and felt like no A/C was on."
Pros: "I would like to have direct flight to Mexico city, it will be a plus."
Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"
Pros: "Very comfortable and clean lots of selections for entertainment"

Pros: "Overall great experience."
Cons: "Waited for over 30 mins for luggage to appear on carousel"
Cons: "The person in Aeromexico balcony didn't have training to attend clientes in the best way. She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."
Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"

Cons: "Food mediocre"

Cons: "Took forever to take off, AC was nonoperational. Very discomforting!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The worst airline now a days"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"
Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."
Pros: "liked the seat and the space. a blanket provided without asking"
Pros: "Great food! Full meal and a snack -- delicious breaks in a long flight. Extensive entertainment choices. Courteous and efficient service. Best flight I have had in years!"
Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."

Cons: "Space between seats and rows."
Pros: "People in Mexico are very nice."
Cons: "The Mexico DF airport us very crowded and you will be delayed. Avoid it if you can."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."
Pros: "Price! And aervife"
Cons: "La aerolinea nondeja documentar ni una maleta en viaje internacionaybesones fuera de lanley ybdijeron q estan amparadoos a esa ley"
Cons: "My flight was moved around then cancelled and I didn't know. I also never got a refund for the flight so I really didn't know! Then I got to the airport and said that they canceled my flight but they got me on a new one for the first leg to Mexico City but then there were no flights for my second leg to Cabo"
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Cons: "Plane was late, food terrible, wifi broken."
Cons: "Embarked late. Sat on runway for 30 minutes waiting to disembark. Missed ride to Eugene Or. Not happy."
Cons: "Air Canada has completely gone down the tubes and super quickly."
Pros: "In flight attendance was excellent and we were nearly overfed with plenty of drinks, snacks and meals. It was nice to see both young and elderly ladies as air hostess. This is a strong statement in non discrimination on Account of age in employment. To see a red Indian lady among them was very refreshing."
Cons: "Dimming of the windows was not user friendly and we had to put up with bright reflected lights from clouds. On ground both in Calgary and Vancouver the wheel chair attendance was not at the same level as in Frankfurt where it had been given with paramedic competence."
Pros: "Slight delay due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "Late 1.5 hrs both ways Should announce if connecting flights are being held"
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so I sat in my own row,?which offered spare leg room (I’m 6’2”). Time to fix the leg room issue on Rouge flights — it’s 2018."
Cons: "Crew seemed uninterested in general. On phones in back while people struggling to find luggage space. Coffee cups and plastic utensils, etc, stored in overhead bins so people at the back had to search for carry-on space elsewhere, again, without assistance from on board crew. Offered service only once and many were sleeping so didn’t get anything. The overall check-in process could be easier, as the app doesn’t always work as it should."
Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."
Cons: "Pas assez de films et séries en français . Pas assez de comptoir Nexus en fonction à l’aer De montreal(2 seulement)"
Pros: "Plesant ride"
Cons: "Flight took longer to depart due to boarding and de-icing"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Long walk to connecting flight. Buggy didn’t turn up"
Cons: "Gluten free food was mediocre. Worst on any airline. Crew was not attentive and anybrequest felt like an imposition."
Pros: "on time."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Immigration was painfully slow and why getting checked again when just coming from another plane? wait time for luggage far too long seems an airport issue same movies"
Pros: "The staff on board the plane were excellent."
Cons: "The wireless entertainment system is slow and glitchy and did not work on an older iPad. The food was subpar but by airline standards was middle of the road."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, no in flight entertainment"
Cons: "1, no food 2, pay for the luggage 3, very small leg room 4, too low temperature in the cabin and no blanket"
Pros: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Air Canada used to be one of the best airlines in North America now I would rate them as one of the worst! Every since they started the air Canada rouge flights. Most uncomfortable seats in the business. Also staff from call center to check in are rude and act like they are doing you a favor."
Cons: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Crew were excellent, flight itself was comfortable once finally underway"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, never given an explanation. My bag did not arrive with my flight from Victoria to Toronto. I was never told why this happened, and I was refused entry through customs and forced to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "TV entertainment even for a short flight"
Cons: "Terrible flight. I should have driven instead. Flight was suppose to land at 12:30pm but due to computer malfunction we landed at 7pm."
Cons: "This flight and my next connecting one (also Air Canada) were both delayed by 45 minutes each. That's an hour and a half of wasted time. Thankfully, I just assumed there would be a delay so I booked a later connection in advance. The weather was perfect and there was no explanation on either flight as the why we were almost an hour delayed. I'm expected to arrive 2 hours in advance of a flight. Why is it so hard for this airline to be on time?"
Pros: "On-time and quick boarding."
Cons: "Not enough leg room - similar to most airlines."
Cons: "The crew waited so long to start selling food. Then, by the time the cart got to where I was sitting (only halfway back) they were already sold out of the two things I wanted to buy. The tea they served was the dregs from the bottom of the kettle, nasty and bitter. There was no "entertainment," except a crew member renting out a couple of ipads that connected to the wifi. The luggage compartments are oddly shaped so that you can only put your luggage in the long way. It a misuse of space. A lot of people had a hard time finding any place to put their bags. During takeoff, one of the luggage compartments opened up twice."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats are extremely small and cramped. Temperature was too cold during the flight and there wasn't even a fan on so it was the cabin temperature which couldn't be adjusted. In addition No blankets or cushions were provided. The leg room was horrible. I'm only 5'5" and I felt cramped, so I can't imagine how it would feel for someone taller. also, no one checked bags due to the newly imposed fee so everyone crammed their luggage into the overhead compartments and many of us had no room to store our carry-ons and had to put it below our seats, causing even less leg room. the Hawaiian airport also locked out the waiting area for international flights back to Vancouver due to some policy that the area must be locked down until the plane has arrived and everyone is off the plane. Many of us were sitting on the ground outside in the non-air conditioned hallway in front of the stores like homeless people for over 2 hours. Luckily seniors were sitting on wheelchairs and did not have to wait while standing or sitting on the ground. They finally let us in 20 minutes before boarding but really by then it made no difference."
Pros: "Air Canada needs to improve their check in process at the Barcelona airport. There were people everywhere waiting for way too long with no real lines or people to help explain where to go. More check in people are needed to improve this process. Once we got up to the front of the line (after about 1 1/2 hours) there was a short line for those who did not check in prior to getting in line - why would people who don't follow the process get an advantage?"
Cons: "it was an old plane, the bathrooms were without water. No individual screen. Flight was delayed, I lost my connection flight. They gave one three hours later."
Pros: "TV screens and entertainment were nice."
Cons: "I would like to have the two meal options be one with meat and one without. The quality of the meal could have been better."
Cons: "Kayak did not allow us to reserve seats, and the seats we received were not together, even though we purchased the seats six months in advance. My seat was at the front facing rear wards, with a non-tilting seat and little foot room."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "Pre-boarding wait is extremely long with all the different groups. Seems you always have a problem with carry on luggage so those in Group 5 will always be forced to check-in unwillingly. Staff taking ticket is unfriendly at gate - i was YELLED at because I had a thin garment bag along with my small international carry on and purse. it was considered 3 bags .... since when does a dress inside a garment bag warrant a full other carry on? It could have folded into my carry on but the purpose of a garment bag is so you do not have to wrinkled it in your luggage. He moved me to the side and told me I needed to check it in, I was NOT allowed to hang it in the plane b/c i'm not a business passenger. WTF. After 10 min of waiting on the side I folded up my garment bag and shoved it in my purse - after another 5 min he gave me my luggage and told me to head toward the plane. Worst. Flight. Ever"
Pros: "The price was decent."
Cons: "I was travelling with a 13 yr old and expected to be seated together when I booked. I didn't know I needed to pluck my seats if I didn't want to pay extra. The woman at boarding moved our seats, however, closer at boarding, which I thought was pretty considerate."
Pros: "Air Canada has good service. Our flight was delayed and I only got one announcement. I think next time it should be more."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was surly overall on flight. On ground they looked bored-one on first leg of flight seemed hung over"
Cons: "Changed my flight home do my layover went from 1 hr 30 min to 5 hours!"
Pros: "The space I had for my feet and legs"
Cons: "The lights that had to stay on during a red eye flight"
Cons: "cancelled my flight and lost all my $$$! I won't use Air Canada again."
Pros: "Flight crew including cockpit were kind, courteous, professional, appreciative and much appreciated."
Cons: "Ground crew - grouchy, uncooperative and down right unprofessional!!"
Pros: "Very fast flight"
Cons: "In flight Audio didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 4 hours due to Air Canada needing a mechanic to check and sign off on the tire tread on one of the wheels, the ground staff enforced the carry-on bag size arbitrarily and inconsistently, and the entertainment system froze up and reset itself at least 3 times on the flight. Apart from the captain, the rest of the Air Canada staff exhibited the usual bureaucratic and defensive behavior I have unfortunately seen multiple times before. They're expensive (with a nasty computer algorithm that raises the price by over $100 each time you browse flights. The first time I checked, it was $300+; by the 3rd time it was over $600. When I used a VPN, the price magically went down to $300 plus, which was still a lot) and the experience is generally unpleasant. I have to brace myself for their lack of common sense behavior every time I deal with them. If I didn't have to fly with them, I wouldn't."
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely and the flight itself was fine and comfortable."
Cons: "As there were no screens on the seats, there were limited entertainment options. I was unable to download the Air Canada app before the flight due to very weak airport internet, and then was unable to rent an iPad because only credit cards were accepted: not cash or debit, or even VISA debit cards. As for boarding, the departing gate kept changing and being removed from the screen before the flight; also there was a 30 min boarding delay."
Pros: "Over all I love air canada"
Cons: "Food too tight on giving you anything"
Pros: "Great service (Business Class)"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours due to fueling issue in YYJ (not Air Canada's fault) Breakfast (business class) never varies and is getting somewhat boring"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, flight on time, service and staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding should be from the rear of the aircraft to reduce congestion in the aisles. Need more vegetarian food options."
Cons: "No complementary food"
Cons: "was not able to board the flight and had to buy an alternate flight on Lufthansa, which was wonderful!"
Pros: "I was able to be put on later flights (my first leg was delayed several hours due to weather), but the staff either didn't have information and/or directed me elsewhere to obtain information. That's about all good I can say about the trip."
Cons: "Poor communication from Air Canada staff about when the next flight would be, moving us off the plane after it had to return to Victoria, only to send us back on within ten minutes or so."
Pros: "These are a work horse for the AC Fleet, no entertainment but it is a relatively short flight."
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
Cons: "Long delay for such a short flight with not enough communication."
Cons: "Crew member in first class not polite at all... And there was no food on a 5hr flight even in first class."
Cons: "Friendlier service."
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "The ability to scan for juvenile adults acting like children."
Pros: "On time flights"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "Slow with drinks and food, late departure"
Cons: "The WiFi for the personal entertainment system wasn’t working properly"
Cons: "They need to learn from asian airlines (specifically Thai Airways)"
Pros: "I finally arrived."
Cons: "More communication about delay and lost luggage."
Cons: "A mechanic issue with a fan in the cargo hold kept us from boarding for 40 minutes. Once we boarded and got out onto the tarmack they discovered an issue with the GPS. We sat for 2 hours before going back to the gate. Maintenance came on and fixed it. Then we took off.. 3 hours late"
Cons: "Everything. We were incredibly delayed which happens but none of the staff knew what was happening. Different passengers were told different things and when we tried to ask questions they were far from helpful. It was not a good experience at all."
Cons: "Plane had no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew, the speed (we arrived early), the boarding."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Faster boarding"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough, and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "As usual with planes coming from SFO, this one was late."
Cons: "Saw many backpacks inefficiently stored overhead, yet I was told to check in my carry on even though I had paid to upgrade my seat. Staff extremely unhelpful and clueless."
Pros: "I am so disappointed of this trip and United airlines"
Cons: "The worst trip with United airlines specially from Huston to El Salvador"
Pros: "I LIKED THE WAY I WAS TREATED BY PERSONNEL AT FLIGHT DEPARTURE ZONES ESPECIALLY IN VANCOUVER AND CHICAGO. WHEN BOARDING THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE POLITE AND HELPFUL IN GETTING MY CARRY ON SUITCASE PROPERLY STOWED."
Cons: "THE OPTION TO WATCH TV WAS NOT USED AS I PREFER READING AND CHATTING WITH FELLOW PASSENGERS AND I DID BOTH!"
Pros: "Pilot kept us up to date"
Cons: "90extra minutes sitting on the tarmac, only water offered, only one bathroom working... how hard is it to at least offer soft drinks ??"
Pros: "Crew. Club soda. Safe landing."
Cons: "Pay for movie. Delayed plane that landed 10 minutes after boarding for connecting flight which was last flight of the night."
Pros: "Take off and landing very good"
Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "7.99 to watch DTV with very limited Choice you get more from Jet Blue Free The sound jack was worn out so I had to jiggle it to find the spot it worked and then hold it for 5 hrs They appear to be cutting corners"
Pros: "Staff was great, and the few delays that occurred were fairly minimal and it was clear that the staff/pilot did their best to keep things timely"
Cons: "These seats and spaces are incredibly small, my body is so sore! Also the internet costs money? I've travelled with other airlines that include Wi-Fi for free"
Cons: "I didn't like buying a ticket for a flight with an ANA number and advertised as ANA but then flying United. I don't want to fly united."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Indifferent staff, absolutely no customer service Flight late, no food, no entertainment, seats extremely cramped, packed in like sardines, no personality at all, just attitude- get through it, provided basics, waited 20 min for first bag to appear in luggage carousel too, nothing good about it! It would be revolutionary if one airline valued their guests and showed it! Instead of cattle they manage and transport"
Pros: "It was a sparsely populated flight, I was able to lay down and sleep, very nice!"
Cons: "No problems, al was fine and I slept very well. No complaints!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers"
Cons: "I don't understand why you don't load from the back of the plane first, it just makes more sense."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."
Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful service,"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "The cabin was clean and the staff was polite."
Cons: "The food that was supplied was meager!. When you fly half way across the United States and get 2 cups of a soft drink, no peanuts or chips; that is terrible."
Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "On time, great crew"
Cons: "Small plane, last row of seats are the pits"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Your refund or rescheduling policies."
Pros: "Was quick enough and on time."
Cons: "Please start charging obese customers more money for their tickets. Seat I was in had me squished because the other passenger was so big. Its not fair that I have to give up half of my seat."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "awful handling of the flight delay with lack of info and updates. We were told we were boarding in twenty minutes for four hours."
Cons: "We booked with Air Canada but it was actually United. The flight was delayed five hours. This always happens with United and they seldom provide explanations or updates."
Cons: "Constant 5 - 30 minute email updates stating flight delay. The delayed started at 30 minutes and ended in being 3 hours. The stated reason changed just as frequently."

Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"
Cons: "Did know till we got on the flight that if we wanted entertainment that we had to down load a appt. so that was annoying."

Cons: "Cramped seats, poor entertainment choices, basic uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "For an international flight, we had to pay for meals and for entertainment."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
