Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "More food would have been better"

Pros: "The food in Premium Economy was good and there are plenty of movies to choose from. The staff were lovely."
Cons: "I had paid for Premium Economy and was seated in Row 30. The passengers were boarded up to row 28, then from to back of the plane forward then I was boarded with the last remaining passengers. That was not what I feel should have happened. I did not like the footrest on the seats."

Pros: "yes amazing crew! thank you so much!"
Cons: "perfect already!"

Pros: "Please read notes above -"

Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. They give you a lot of food and the seats seem to have a little more space between them so your knees don't hit the back of the chair!"

Pros: "Decent meals, complimentary drinks including alcohol, more room between seats than some carriers"
Cons: "Seats are not as well padded as some carriers which becomes important on long flights. Heathrow gates are very long distances for anyone with mobility issues and switching terminals is confusing if not done regularly. Onboard staff was helpful. On board entertainment was free and varied. No WiFi?"

Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."

Pros: "I could not fly back to the US pr the layover. I got stranded in Berlin. It was horrible."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flights back to the USA and the connecting flight. It was horrible customer service when I spoke to British Airways at the counter. Lady in TXL yelled at me to leave her desk and to call Air New Zealand. Air NZ said they cancelled flights then Flyus.com said to deal with Air New Zealand and said my flights got cancelled and that they could not get me another flight. I had to find out how to get out of Berlin. I had to fly to Spain to my cousin’s home because I haf no where to go and did not have money to pay for another flight from Berlin to LAX 1,200 euros. I am still in Europe stuck and it is Monday 4/30. My son needs me in Los Angeles! I will never use Kayak again. What happened to my $878 dollars????"

Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"

Cons: "Unlike other international flights, Air New Zealand only allows 1 check in luggage per person instead of 2. Most other international airlines allow 2 check in luggage. But otherwise it was good and the service was ok, not as much food selection as other airlines but the crew are very nice and the airline is very clean."

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."

Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."

Pros: "The customer service is stellar, the planes comfortable. I will fly with them again in the future."

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment Good ground staff at Auckland check in Hospitable cabin crew Food was palatable"
Cons: "Although I had mistakenly arrived many hours early for my flight and traveled with the airline back and forth across the Pacific, ANZ personnel would not admit me to their lounge to wait in relative comfort."

Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"

Pros: "I was able to watch the entire Game of Thrones Season Six on the flight to Vancouver, and catch up with The Walking Dead on the return flight."
Cons: "The menu was poorly planned with very little fresh raw salad . The beef choice had potato salad and potato in the hot meal."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and adjustable with tons of legroom. There was a bottle of water at our seat when we arrived, real pillows, and no more than two seats side by side. Bean bags to rest your feet on was a great touch."
Cons: "Touch screen system on entertainment system was very sluggish and unresponsive"

Pros: "Comfort, cleanless, crew availaibility."

Cons: "People allowed to bring on too much carry on that will not fit so we all wait in the aisle behind them . Dumb."

Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"

Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional."
Cons: "Seats are unbelievably cramped. Not enough legroom or cargo room under the seats. It seems they put more seats in than the aircraft was meant to have. Made experience of 10 hour flight much more difficult."

Pros: "Lots of selections"
Cons: "Adult movies with many sexual scenes need to be avoided in the aircrafts! Children behind or sitting the next roll also watched it! Very concerned if I should book your airline with my 2 teenagers in the future..."

Pros: "I absolutely adored Air New Zealand. The airplane itself was a ball of fun with its purple lights. The flight crew was funny and charming, and quite attentive to people who wanted snacks and beverages. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "I hated that it costs $150 for an extra (2nd) checked in luggage. If you are flying international, typically you get 2 free checked in luggages. This caught me by surprise, and I wish it was brought to my attention before I went to the airport. The seats were okay, didn't recline as much as I would've liked. But overall I enjoyed my ANZ flight."

Pros: "New plane, direct flight"
Cons: "Outward flight had unfriendly staff. Return flight had staff that were invisible. You either get a mean mom or a negligent uncle, neither are optimal for flight crew."

Pros: "amazing accommodations and comfort with everything accessible for technology great staff, kosher means as i requested were on point, arrived late totally my fault, to both departing and arriving flights and they really did an amazing job making sure i get on the flight, international"

Cons: "Some of the crew were a bit pushy"

Pros: "Brand new plane, great leg room in coach. My next suggestion would be to buy "sky couch""

Pros: "The Air Canada flight to LA was fine. It was the second leg of the trip that wasn't all that good."
Cons: "The very long stop over in LA. The airport is not great."

Pros: "Timeliness, friendliness of flight crew"

Cons: "I had selected an aisle seat. But on the plane, the configuration of seats was different and it wasnt an aisle seat. Since its a seriously long flight, I was very upset that my selection had not been honored."

Cons: "To much time delay on flyith"

Pros: "This was my third flight with Air NZ.. Flight Crew excellent, entertainment excellent, food great. Especially enjoyed the morning tea after the long flight from London to LAX."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1 hour and gate was not posted until right before boarding causing us to rush clear across the airport. However boarding was quick and made up time in flight so all worked out."

Pros: "The crew were really awesome. They kept a smile the whole 11 hours."
Cons: "To be honest I had to pay for the five star entertainment and a small increase in comfort."

Pros: "A good amount of legroom (in economy!) and really pleasant staff."
Cons: "Paying $233 for an extra bag was ridiculous."

Pros: "Sat in a seat that can be a sky couch, used the footrest option even though I wasn't able to use the full sky couch. Very comortable. Great movies available, but I wish there were more episodes of Married at First Sight! :)"
Cons: "I purchased a preferred seat, which included preferred boarding. There was no preferred boarding announcement and I boarded with everyone else and fought for overhead bin space."

Cons: "No vegetarian meal, lot of turbulance"

Pros: "Checkin was easy and fast. The lounge in Auckland was comfortable and well supplied."

Pros: "The Entertainment was amazing, I really enjoyed watching movies."
Cons: "The crew asking for a tip when asked a question- I think that is rude"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The monitors in our seats didn't work so we couldn't watch anything the whole flight. The light in our seats didn't work so we weren't able to read either. One flight attendant just seemed annoyed when we told him we about the issue. Another one was helpful and gave us a torch so we could at least read. We were given Air NZ vouchers for $120 but we weren't able to buy anything from the store."

Pros: "Food entertainment flight attendances were so helpful and perfectly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing was bad at all"

Pros: "The plane ride was smooth"
Cons: "Getting booked onto another flight and not having comfortable seats ( even though they overbooked our flight.) we went from Canada to New Zealand The flight attendant suggesting I was pregnant and I'm not just little fat."

Pros: "Air NZ is fantastic"

Pros: "Excellent crew service. Food pretty good also"

Pros: "The crew, entertainment"
Cons: "The padding on the seats could be a bit more comfortable in economy, especially on 10 to 16 hour flights."

Pros: "Everything. Air New Zealand is by far the best airlines on the planet."
Cons: "Hahahaha, what didn't I like? Hahaha"

Pros: "ON time!! As comfortable a long haul can be."

Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown with"

Cons: "People should be able to recline their chairs whenever they want to."

Pros: "on time, plenty of movie options"
Cons: "Economy on Air New Zealand is better than the USA carriers, but still nothing to write home about."

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: "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"

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."

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: "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"

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."

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: "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: "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: "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: "content with everything on this flight."

Pros: "Great customer service! The crew was super patient with me and a flight issue I had"
Cons: "I never like the drinks offered on a plane."

Cons: "Bag full of very expensive ski stuff lost in Vancouver somewhere---hoping I get it back!"

Pros: "Smooth flight and easy app to handle"
Cons: "Kiosks couldn't read any of my travel documents. Even thought I checked in and about my luggage 24 hours in advance I had to form the line and check in for help."

Pros: "time of flight"
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."

Pros: "Alaska has always treated us well. I would recommend them anytime."

Pros: "Charging ports were helpful"
Cons: "Flights attendant was rude"

Pros: "The flight was quick and we arrived early. I had more seat room on this flight than on intercontinental planes. Very smooth landing, one of the best."
Cons: "No beverage service of any kind--trip was too quick!"

Pros: "arrived earlier"

Pros: "Short flight"

Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"

Pros: "Alll"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "no complains"

Pros: "the flight was so short that nothing mattered but it was still a good flight."

Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"

Pros: "The crew was extremely hospitable! The airplane appeared new, but regardless was extremely clean. There was only a snack on the flight, but it was enjoyable. Overall, very highly recommendable airline."

Cons: "Lack of help with information on transfer between terminals at Seattle/Tacoma"

Pros: "Up & down in 45 minutes."

Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Love Alaska and ANA. GREAT FLIGHTS."

Cons: "I don't particularly care for the cookies they hand out."

Pros: "Military, Alaska airlines was awesome allowing active duty members to bring up to 6 bags up to 70lbs each witch helped us a lot since we when transferring to another state. Boarding was fast, and the crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was delicious, but I couldn't give a five stars just because I had to pay for it. 6 hours flight it was necessary to eat something, it was just $6 and drinks were free. So I give a 4 start for that reason. Entertainment was good if you bring your own tablet or laptop. Some shows are free and some you have to pay for. They also had tablets for rent for $10. Confort, it was a pretty big plane. I had the bad luck to get the seat in front of the emergency exit so I couldn't reclined my sit but it wasn't that bad."

Pros: "Crew give me feel comfortable!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Too cold!"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable"
Cons: "I have never been asked to leave a plane. They made some outrageous claims with no real reason. Saying I smelled like acohol so that was reason enough to remove me from the plane. I was happy smiling and talking with other people in the row about families. I gave no reason for them to remove me from the flight. Not one time during boarding or waiting at the gate was I talked to about behavior or anything that might be reasons for removal off the plane. Crappy customer services I don't think they handled this very well at all."

Pros: "Flight were on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "No complimentary snacks offered such as pretzels"

Pros: "Crew was super friendly!"
Cons: "Charging for meals."

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "Quick boarding process and take off. Flight was slightly late but the staff expedited boarding and take off. Staff is friendly. Service was great. Beverage service was great. Baggage was quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."

Cons: "Got delayed"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."

Cons: "On time flight"

Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"

Cons: "My monitor isn’t really working after rebooted. And the audio hole wasn’t tight enough"

Cons: "The wrap didn't taste too well."

Pros: "Crew and generous pours of wine"
Cons: "The food was at best edible"

Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."

Pros: "That we finally arrived."
Cons: "That we didn't arrive even remotely close to when we were supposed to."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."

Pros: "Total Experience of Flying on this Airline ."
Cons: "No Comment."

Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"

Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."

Pros: "Great flight attendants and very clean"

Pros: "Great movie selection"

Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"

Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."

Pros: "Great service, polite staff"
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats, even for my girlfriend, who is 5'6""

Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"

Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"

Pros: "plane was farily empty. Who doesn't like that, other than Delta, haha. Nice workers, smooth flight."
Cons: "Delta comfort was very tight. I'm 6 foot tall and my knees were hitting the chair in front of me the whole flight."

Pros: "Timing and Service"
Cons: "Space between seats too reduced"

Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."

Pros: "They got us from A to B without any problems."
Cons: "Efficient to the point of robotic."

Pros: "the chick who worked the counter for the preboard flight counter was really REALLY nice"
Cons: "everyone on my flight was ugly"

Pros: "- took off and landed :) - negligible turbulence - captain's skill in landing in foggy Seattle weather was impressive. - coffee actually wasn't bad this time."
Cons: "- no individual displays - no individual air vent (this must have been a really old jet) - *very* cramped seats. I'm 6'2" and I barely fit in economy. The second someone reclines I'm in for an uncomfortable flight."

Pros: "Dish TV"
Cons: "Pilots were coming from an international flight that was delayed. They then landed at the absolute opposite end of the airport AND had to clear customs. When we boarded they said the pilots had landed. 60 minutes later they arrived, 30 minutes after that we took off. Missed connecting flight in Seattle. Poor communication during delay."

Pros: "Nothing. Flight was 5 hours delayed. Finally rebooked and still missed all connections because that flight was late departing. All legs of this trip on delta were delayed. Lousy service ast attempting to resolve situation. Given a choice, I do not choose Delta as a first choice airline to fly."

Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."

Pros: "I liked the service of the crew members and the Margarita was super strong."
Cons: "The seats are really close together. It made it uncomfortable to sleep."

Pros: "The staff of Dekta were welcoming as well as helpful. The flight was professionally run and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "The auxiliary power went down before we took off. However, the flight captain assured passengers that procedures would be followed to assure our safety. We waited on the plane for 10 minutes and then took off. Thanks to staff for following safety procedures."

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Kept us updated throughout a long delay."
Cons: "We should have reached our destination at 7:40PM. We finally arrived about 9:50pm. We were held at the gate for about two hours while a mechanical issue was solved. The plane was not equipped with WiFi/internet and the entertainment was poor. Expected better from Delta."

Pros: "staff was friendly"

Pros: "This was my shortest flight for the day, just over 2 hours and it was a bigger plane, had monitors in the seat backs, served drinks and snack."
Cons: "I think entertainment should be free. There should be a charge for wifi, because people can survive without their computer/phone for a few hours. But, if you have already put the monitors on the plane, how much extra money per year would airlines lose by offering a free movie...?"

Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."

Cons: "Poor service. Will never fly with Delta again."

Cons: "They didn't land due to fog, making me miss all my other flights. Bags were not put on redirected flight to Beijing. Bags still missing 3 days later. Trip has been put on hold till bags arrive in Jakarta."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We finally got toward the runway then had to sit there for about 25 minutes because there was a technical error."

Pros: "The boarding was quick and the gate agent was efficient"
Cons: "We not only left 45 minutes late, but there was no beverage service on the flight."

Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Cons: "Not real happy with getting charged 25 dollars for a bag when I am MVP with Alaska Airlines, was under impression both airlines are together."

Pros: "On time, and great fare"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."

Pros: "Super helpful gate agents and smooth entry process back into the country."
Cons: "Crew on plane weren’t great. The male attendant wasn’t very understanding when a little girl had to use bathroom before we even left the gate. One of the women attendants ended up letting her go while taxing. Clearly the guy doesn’t understand kids. We could have ended up with a plane smelling like"

Cons: "I could not get through to westjet for days due to weather. Then when they called, they hung up on me as connected....back to another hour wait. Then an email. Then 5 days later to hear that despite all of their chaos there would be no changes."

Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "No ability to change dates of flight."
Cons: "Paying a charge to change flight"

Cons: "The flight was delayed"

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in the plane for 4 hours when 20 minutes into the delay the flight attendants knew they weren't going to be able to fly with us, and instead of cancelling the flight 20 minutes into the delay we sat on the plane for 4 hours while the crew knew we were not going to take off. There were a handful of infants and children (my 10 month old nephew included) and for the crew to keep the passengers on the plane for 4 hours when they knew the flight was going to be cancelled is unacceptable."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Over crowded seating. Over head music that you had to talk over. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."

Pros: "We boarded on time, and when we were delayed by fog, we were kept informed."
Cons: "We were one hour late landing, couldn't be helped. But, it was a 45 minute wait for our luggage."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Gates were changed and I was not informed. Flight was almost an hour delay. My luggage was never even put on the plane. So I cam from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to Yuma, AZ and have no baggage, no clothes, toiletries, nothing! It is 9:14pm and won't have any luggage until MAYBE 7-8pm Monday night. It is Sunday night now. Not happy!!!!!!!! No food on the flight!!"

Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great and the only positive part of my experience."
Cons: "I was put into the long line to check my luggage with 75 minutes to take off. Of course I missed my direct flight as I was put into a long line. The man who listened to me complain was very kind and empathetic and the only good part about being forced to miss my flight. "We stop loading X amount of minutes before take off" I can't remember the exact number but there was ten minutes to spare before said time when they stopped loading. Dealt with it. Not happy but at least my luggage wasn't lost. Will I fly with WestJet again? Probably. Will I expect some sort of hang up and/or inconvenience? Definitely."

Pros: "The Pilot explained his Procedures thoroughly."
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "This flight and the one before we're both delayed by over an hour. What's worse is each time we ended up spending about 20-30 min slowly driving around the runway since the takeoff queue was backed up so much. Maybe not the airlines fault for that but the pilot never said a word about it and kept us in the dark. Each flight was in total delayed by several hours. It seems more often than not these days that flights are delayed and are totally unreliable. I've come to hate flying."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and took another 45 min to leave once boarding was complete"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive. They still give away snacks too which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked about the flight other than the discomfort of the seats, but there is nothing they could have really done to change that!"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Small seats. Nonexistent food and entertainment option are all self provided"

Cons: "Flight was late which got us running for our next connection in Toronto."

Cons: "Being late into LA"

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing!"
Cons: "The head phone jack for my tv was broken which was annoying but not the worst thing ever because I just listened along with my wife beside me. If I hadn't known the person beside me and have been able to listen to share theirs it would have been way worse."

Cons: "I didn't like that you had to download an app for vieweing movies burning flight."

Pros: "Flight attendants were super friendly. The plane was very nice and spacious, the flight was smooth and the landing was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "My luggage did not make it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed which led to our rental car gone"

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "To many layovers, the gates were too far from each other"

Cons: "No choice for seating - my husband and I were seated separately"

Pros: "Friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Typical stuff, Cramped space, crappy food"

Pros: "Smooth, friendly and cost effective."

Pros: "I travel on plus and the person who was in charge of our sección was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "what i don't like is that i had to wait for my luggage an hour . causin incomvinience for me later."

Cons: "No entertain system"

Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"

Pros: "Start the flight a bit earlier than scheduled, so we arrive a bit earlier too. The flight is smooth."

Pros: "Good helpful crew. Reasonably sane boardingon a full d flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "1+ hour before we took off after getting on the plane. 1+ hour before we got off the plane after landing."

Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight left & arrived on time."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, more legroom than the American Airline flight"
Cons: "I prefer to have a TV to watch instead of downloading the App."

Cons: "Same comment as the previous flight ref movies. I wont take Westjet again on a long flight without movie screens. Not all old people have Iphones or laptop computers. Mike C."

Pros: "Flight was great. Calgary customs was awful. The lines were extremely long. We boarded our plane at 9:50 and departure was at 10."
Cons: "Customs at Calgary Canada was terribly slow. Almost missed our plane."

Cons: "Didn't know I needed to download Westjet app before the flight and bring my own device"

Pros: "Food, attendants, comfort, entertainment"
Cons: "Manual boarding and missing one of my luggage"

Cons: "It had over 1 hour delayed no wifi no screen"

Pros: "Crew fun"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"

Pros: "Gate agents were nice."
Cons: "1. Nothing healthy to buy on the plane. 2. Nasty flight attendant. 3. Small seats. 4. Swollen ankles because flight attendant wouldn't let me put my stocking feet up in bulkhead seat, which is why I purchased it. 5. Poor service. 6. Plane landed early but we didn't get to the gate until more than an hour later!"

Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"

Pros: "online checkin, fast boarding (a total of only 27 passengers undoubtedly made boarding much quicker), had extra space due to the sparse flight; smooth flight, good refreshments, pilot did a good job of keeping us updated on runway/gate status"
Cons: "on board crew didn't seem interested; empty cup was never picked up; upon leaving the aircraft (after a 30 minute delay due to a problem at our gate) none of the crew said as much as goodbye or thanks. I know it was a late flight with very few passengers, many of whom may have slept, but as such I thought the crew should have been more attentive and friendly at departure. A disappointing experience."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice don't know who's fault it"
Cons: "Almost an hour to get any luggage out is not acceptable"

Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours"

Cons: "It was a little warm and stuffy while loading."

Pros: "We were delayed while in the plane. The steward decided to give drinks and snacks on the house which in the end lightened the atmosphere. It did make it late for the Oilers play-off game which was likely very important to many of the business men on the flight."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to get their entertainment app to work."

Pros: "Nice Staff. Easy process."

Cons: "Not enough leg room , felt very cramped."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick. Got to LA within 40 minutes."
Cons: "They could've provided some snacks."

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Flight left almost on time and arrived on time. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wasn't able to select a seat ahead of time like with other airlines. Seat rows way too tight (even for a normal 130 lb person like me). No good movie options, very limited selection. Food pretty bad, but that's almost expected this day and age."

Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED IN THE LAST MINUTE, I WAS STRANDED IN LONDON AND HAD NO COMPENSATION"

Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"

Pros: "All of the flight attendants were extremely sweet!"

Cons: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "no dairy free food options"

Pros: "The crew was great! Very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "The crew and entertainment was great on this flight! Other than that, it is kind of hard to find positives."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 minutes for whatever reason and then we were trapped in the air for 11 hours in tiny seats. The seat wasn't very comfortable and I didn't have much room to sit and for my legs. I had a stupid box under the seat in front of me with airplane stuff in it I guess, so that took up some room under the seat in front of me. I had my legs stretched in the aisle most of the flight. The food wasn't great, but what airline food is good? I was really expecting this aircraft to be like the Dream Liner, but overall it was just a big tin can in the sky."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seating. Meal. Entertainment. Did not compare well to Air Canada."

Pros: "The plane was new and everything was up to par."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like other than flying in coach!"

Cons: "Space for legs"

Pros: "Regardless of many flights, this was my first experience with BA on transatlantic flights. And I was pleasantly surprised. Very well mannered crew, politeness, help, all... Food was great as well. Overall great first impression and definitely will fly again with BA."
Cons: "In general, it was ok, can't complain."

Pros: "Flying on the 380 very smooth"
Cons: "Gate was not available at arrival"

Cons: "Flight crew was very aggressive and casual. Displays are ancient. Seat was broken."

Pros: "Across to entertainment helped pass the time"
Cons: "On an 11 + hour flight it's extremely difficult if not impossible to get any sleep when you can barely move your seat back. Try removing some seats ...yes, I know impossible"

Pros: "The food and the boarding crw comfortable"

Cons: "Would have liked the option of internet - even for fee on the 12 HR flight from London to La. otherwise great"

Pros: "We enjoyed the entertainment on the flight. The crew was great too!"
Cons: "We were right in front of the restroom, closest to the back wall. We kept hearing the toilets flush and had to deal with all the people in line for the restrooms. It just felt a little crowded back there. Boarding wasn't ideal either. We were delayed 3 hours and couldn't get a confident update until we actually boarded. The only thing near the gate was a Starbucks that took cash only. That's more of a problem with the airport though. Overall, for an 11 hour flight, it was quite enjoyable."

Cons: "Aside from not being able to leave for almost a whole day, they lost our luggage upon arriving to Los Angeles."

Pros: "The food was good and the leg room was very good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "On both flight s going to LAX to London and London to LAX we were sitting in the back of the plan with all the families with noisy kids. on the flight to London I had two twins in one seat it was difficult for the mother and the children were all over the place. with a tantrum at the end of the flight because of having to have the seat belt on. On the flight home we were in the last row and all kinds of crying kids. If I ever fly again on British Air I want a seat further forward but if is hard to pre book your seat. We are in our 70's and would like a quieter area."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst flight ever! Crew very unprofessional. The plane was filthy and most seats did not recline. It was a night flight but they were unable to turn the lights off. We took off almost an hour later because they did not have ice nor snacks."

Pros: "On time and nice."

Pros: "Excellent entertainment system! Food was good too!"
Cons: "Flight crew was snotty and condescending - put off by doing their job. We didn't ask for anything - they are just rude. Lost bag - 8 days later - still missing!!"

Pros: "Entertainment, food, drinks, service."

Pros: "Good service. Very gracious that the plane waited for us arriving late from Rome."

Cons: "Lost all our luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departure time was 4:10 pm, and they finished boarding at 4:45 pm. Then we had to sit in the plane on the tarmac for another 2 hours, while the captain kept coming up with the weirdest excuses about why we are delayed. First they had to do a manual passenger head count, because the numbers didn't add. After an hour, he says they are finally done counting and are waiting for the truck to push the plane on to the runway. He says that since this is a A380, it needs a bigger truck that is in short supply at Heathrow!! He came on the intercom few more times in the next hour with more excuses about why we are delayed, but by then I was too mad to remember what the hell he was saying."

Pros: "I booked a window seat and the booking was dropped, but there was a special to upgrade to economy plus and things worked out just fine. Food was good, and seat comfortable in economy plus"
Cons: "they messed up the booking The added compartment next to the window did not open and was a waste of space."

Pros: "Heathrow Terminal; Check in easy. Staff knowledgable Security smooth until you reach carry on check. Disorganized area very cramped, 3-4 individuals at a time to place items in trays."
Cons: "Gate not assigned until 1 hour before boarding but this issue would be workable if the assigned gate is A. I am 68 years old the trek to gate C was ludicrous."

Cons: "Having to collect my luggage in philidelphia then check my bag again for the transfer to lax."

Pros: "The actual aircraft was well maintained and inviting. The crew and the food, as always, was outstanding."
Cons: "Two things: 1) My screen wasn't functioning properly. I did tell a crew member and she re-started it for me; but, it continued to glitch and was, for the most part, unusable. (The touch screen was unresponsive and kept getting stuck). 2) When the person in front of me reclined, her seat was very close to my face, giving me very little room. I didn't want to do the same thing to the person behind me, so I kept my seat upright, which didn't help. I only got up once during the whole flight and I know it was uncomfortable for the reclining person because there was no way to exit without jostling her."

Pros: "Good selection of movies. Flight attendant super nice. Provided plenty of drinks with meals and brought around water and juice in between."
Cons: "Too many sweet things in meals."

Cons: "Unfriendly flight attendants (with exceptions), mostly older women with seniority and nothing to spare in terms of customer care. Food service was very very basic for a flight of this duration (>10 hours)."

Pros: "Cabin Crew were great"
Cons: "Food was OK but the chicken wrap was awful."

Pros: "Service was very good. Attendants made sure you were comfortable and made hourly rounds throughout the flight. Brought water, juice and snacks."
Cons: "My seating stunk. Made the mistake of not checking in when I should have and was in the second to the last row of the plane in middle section. Needed an aisle seat to get up and walk more. Make sure to check in when you can!"

Pros: "Was on time"

Pros: "We've met one nice and polite employee from British Airways."
Cons: "The plane was delayed and no reason was given. My boyfriend got selected for a 'random' security check and because he helped carry my bag for two seconds they had to check that one as well. As a result we were the last people to board and delayed the plane even more and then announced to everyone as we were boarding that we're now ready to leave so we got dirty looks from everyone. They straight up didn't even take our luggage on the plane and got an email while landing that we won't be getting it until the next day. The cabin was very, very warm, they barely turned on the AC after asking them, awful food and no option to buy another. And worst of it all all everyone was so rude, no one apologized for the luggage or for anything really. This was the return home from our holiday trip, where British also lost our luggage (more than half of the trip we had no clothes and had to buy new ones), we were delayed by almost a day and had to add an extra stop to our anyway very long trip. And had an 'amazing' British Airways employee ask us why would she apologize for us being delayed for so long, it's not her personal fault. We still don't know the reason for the delay, btw. That was at no times communicated."

Pros: "The crew were ALL super friendly. My first time on a flight were ALL the stewards were polite, kind and helpful. Usually there's just one, if any. However they were all so friendly and accommodating."

Cons: "Although I was in business class the service seemed unattentive and sparse. The crew did not check for passengers needing additional drinks and did not clear the empty glasses until almost the end of the flight. Overall, the crew seemed more suited to economy class than business class."

Cons: "We had a 4 hour delay . At the boarding the crew was not given accurate information. I even had to go to customer service and than tto a station manager to make sure that I would get the correct information. Once handled the crew and also the station manager was good."

Cons: "I arrived in Los Angeles on a Saturday and was told my luggage was still in London but they would have someone deliver it to me the next day (Sunday) 5-8 pm. No one showed up or bothered to call. I checked the status and was told 10 pm. No one showed. I was then told 12-1 AM. No one showed. No one bothered to call. No one showed up until 3 AM Monday morning. I took my frustrations to twitter and it looks like this is a common occurrence with British Airways."

Pros: "Organized boarding, nice and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Food was mediocre at best, seats uncomfortable for such a long flight"

Pros: "The best-flight entertainment I have ever had on a trans-Atlantic flight. The flight also arrived forty minutes earlier than estimated."

Pros: "Well it was operated through American Airlines so it wasn't BA. I don't understand why they do that. And I didn't know it at time of booking. Anyway flight was annoying at first bc it took 10 years to take off. The crew was so so. There was a rude attendant who was male and a really nice one. The guy seemed irritated to be working or asked any questions. The food was decent. And I was lucky to get my own row. So I slept the whole 10 hours. I'd have to check the plane next time I flew with American. The plane on way out of states was awful!!! So it was meh overall."
Cons: "Rude attendant Wouldn't let me use bathroom while it talking 30 years to take off."

Pros: "On my way to Dublin it was good service everything went smooth boarding, crew and food"
Cons: "On the way back from Dublin I did not like the fact the airplane did not have any entertainment. It is a long trip and just to sit down for more than 10 hours is difficult."

Pros: "Great seats, comfortable plane"
Cons: "The Baby bassinet is a bit small and like a beach lounge chair. It looked like our son was about to be fired out of a catapult."

Pros: "They checked our passports and we boarded immediately after, at the same speed. It was a perfect pace. No gaggle or cattle call."
Cons: "The ride was extremely uncomfortable but that is the fault of the A380. If you are in the cheap seats, look into another airplane. It's simply terrible."
