Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"

Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."

Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."

Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"

Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went smooth. Except the part where my flight was changed twice with a last minute notice."
Pros: "Everything was fine except I ordered an aisle seat and was given a middle seat instead. The person who did get aisle played a war game for my territory with his arns over the arm rest and his refusal to get up whem the window person needed out. Next tine I will demand my aisle purchase is hononored"

Pros: "The business class amenities were amazing. Food was great and service was great."
Pros: "I really liked the Tv screen on the 737-800 Toronto to Mexico whoever i believe they should be adding 737 Max to this route as Toronto is a megacity and this plane is kind of old for serving this busy route"
Cons: "The plane seats are so uncomfortable i was trying to sleep on that for like 3 hours without success"
Pros: "The cabin was kept quiet, dark and orderly for the night flight."
Cons: "Same as above. The seat in economy is truly an endurance test. No way to go to sleep."
Cons: "The plane is in terrible shape"
Pros: "Good entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude, they lost my bag and gave me $100 to cover $1000 worth of valuables."
Cons: "On the first leg of my trip, the time shown on the boarding pass was the time I needed to be at the gate. For this leg of the trip, the time on the boarding pass was the time the plane left. I arrived at the gate at the time the boarding pass said and the plane had already left. I am traveling to my father's funeral and the only option I had was to rebook for an additional cost of $600. Extremely upset."
Pros: "I think if you pay extra to sit In the front, the seats should recline. Mine didn’t."
Cons: "The stewardess was very rude and"
Pros: "I will definitely fly with Aeromexico in the future. Great crew and amenities."
Pros: "Loved that they let me board an earlier flight to LAX"

Pros: "I try to sit in the front of the aircraft, the leg room is great and you get to watch everyone who enters."
Pros: "Good timing."
Cons: "Overweight passangers could not lower their arm rests and spilled into other passangers seats. No personal entertainment."
Pros: "Since I got down from the plane everyone from Aeromexico were super attentive."
Cons: "The fact that they only gave peanuts for the flight. I was really hungry and because of the connection I couldn’t get anything from the airport and there wasn’t any other option in flight."
Pros: "The service was extraordinary since the first moment I checked in. Crew was super attentive, professional and over standing. The service in airport was fast and efficient and in the plane crew and services totally exceed my perspectives. Thank you!"
Pros: "The food was good entertainment was too."
Cons: "The fact that they lost my bag. No one ever helped it contacted me. No $ was given so I had to buy my own clothes. Still don't have my bag. Been home for 2 days and haven't heard anything from Aeromexico."
Pros: "attendants heard your grievances."
Cons: "i got there around 5am for a 7am flight. it took those 2 hours to check me in. and then ran to the plane so i would not miss it."
Pros: "Nothing exciting about the airline. Will try not to use them again. The boarding part was good. Then the plane left an hour later..."
Cons: "Aeromexico was mediocre with nothing I’d remember about. Food was pretty bad, service kind of rude. The planes were crammed and old. Entertaining also very outdated. The 5 hour layover in Mexico City added unnecessary stress to an already long trip from chicago to Buenos Aires."
Pros: "The service and flight attendants were nice and genuine"
Cons: "The food and the male flight attendant from EZE to Mexico was not friendly, I didn't see him with a smile at all"
Pros: "The best seats I have ever had in coach. I am 6’3” and had plenty of legroom. Wonderful seating!"
Cons: "Main meal very bad, tasteless pasta with a dry bun, no butter, no salt and pepper and pudding for a side. Pudding? Really? Probably the worst airline meal I’ve ever had."
Pros: "This flight (mex city- San Francisco) was much better overall. Newer plane, friendlier crew, better food."
Pros: "The crew was courteuos and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a midnight flight so I tested as best as I could."
Pros: "SAME THAN ABOVE"
Cons: "SAME THAN ABOVE"
Pros: "Good services"
Cons: "Online checkin not available. It should be. Gate should be announced earlier"
Cons: "Did not like the connection through Mexico in which we have to take it through customs and recheck for flight to Lima."
Cons: "Seats are very tight, uncomfortable."
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Cons: "Massive 12hour delay, no compensation and then plane was over 45 minutes late the next day"
Pros: "Flight 1: bathroom bigger. Flight 2: good service. In flight 2, the service was better. We could sit next to each other. Flight 2 had better entertainment, more choice of movies and better screens."
Cons: "In flight 1, from São Paulo to Mexico City, my husband and I were separated. It was suggested by the stewardess for him to move to another seat 20 rows away due to his size. Instead of separating two people, why not ask the single person if she would rather have more room. But the steward said only one of us could move, me or my husband. The reason he was moved was that there were two empty seats, so he could sit comfortably; however, no one told the woman sitting in the three seat aisle that he would be sitting there. So she basically took over her seat and the neighbouring one. The crew should have been the one to inform her the reason for his move there. It was a horrible and unnecessary experience. Because of my husband's size, I am needed to help him with his tray and I had his medication."
Cons: "Faster boarding. Decense and luggage arrival."
Pros: "A few seat empty xso we all could stretch"
Pros: "I couldn't believe that we actually got a meal on a flight and didn't have to pay for it. The airport was cold and I asked for a blanket when I got on the plane and was immediately handed a blanket which doesn't happen on other airlines I have flown on."
Cons: "I was very upset, because I purchased my baggage and at times of check in it was charged for extra baggage(that I did not have!!) When I questioned the lady at check-in why I was being charged for extra baggage and I did not have extra, she said those were the rules and either I paid or I could not check my bag in, then showed her proof that I had purchased my baggage option online and she stated they don't work with the online policies. That she didn't know why I had purchased my bagged fee online, and still charged me extra. I will NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN!!! She did not even allow me to speak to a manager, she said there was no one above her. Extremely RUDE!!"
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful."
Cons: "No movies, or shorts, even clips or old tv shows.... WAAAAAAAA"
Pros: "Everything about Premier was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment screen in first class seat didn't work."
Pros: "2 hours delayed. Unbelievable"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was helpful."
Cons: "Looks to me that the seats have shrunk and the space between rows is inadequate. I was pretty much frozen in one position for five hours, unable to move much. I know that this has nothing to do with the crew, and everything to do with the airline itself, but it will have an impact nonetheless, on the overall experience."
Pros: "Everything is provided free of charge; food, earphones, etc."
Pros: "One team member per airport was halway nice"
Cons: "I called aeromexico 3 times in last month to get special meal. They said they cant over phone. Not over internet. No where. get to my flight without a meal. No voucher even when i said i was allergic. No money for bag of chips. Worse than being mean, they lied and said nothing cN be done. Like it was 1930s wihout a massive food court. Ask them to call ahead to next flight, they said they need 48 h, disregarding what i said about my calls a month before NOR aplologising OR being nice abiut it. Everything was someone else's fault or a 3rd party that had nothing to do with aeromexico. Whats the point of paying for a flight if the airline doesnt care 2 shits about you? ???"
Cons: "the wifi is awful"
Pros: "Flying portion was fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed for mechanical issues.... then upon landing trapped in cabin filled with exhaust then again trapped in a locked hallway."
Pros: "Pilot did great job, superb smooth landing."
Cons: "The two male flight attendants could have been a bit more friendly."
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Pros: "It was average."
Cons: "4 hour delay is unacceptable"
Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "didn't get my flight you said booking was guaranteed refund 24 hours but when i call to change or refund you said the airline would not change or refund. you didn't live up to your end. if you refund i would consider tat but for now. i would never use kayak again and will post my experience"
Cons: "you could have change my return when i called 2 hours after or 18 hours after now i have to pay 500 to get home you should live up to your rules and refund my money"
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Cons: "Someone stole an ipad and that forced us the be delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "The cleaniless of the flight can get better"
Pros: "Flying AA. Excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "Great Wifi! After reading bad reviews it was actually ok. Flew business on the A319 (single aisle plane) and it reminded me of qantas 737. I think for a short haul day flight I may just put up with economy instead for the price. Food is ok. I think with AA you have to pick your aircraft, it makes a difference what plane you fly as to what you get in business class. FA's were great. Overall I'd fly them again. Food was ok."
Cons: "They asked everyone to put the window shades down but I fly window seat because I like looking out! It was a day flight too! LAX T4 lounge is being refurbished so you need to go to T5 and make sure it's not the regional lounge!"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Cons: "Old plane and the movie app kept cutting out"
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Crew and the fact that they lost my bag"
Cons: "How small the plane was. Not much personal space and I am a shorter person."
Pros: "Because our first flight to philly was extremely late we were going to be unable to make our connecting flight to Wilmington sooooo had to cancel cour whole vacation to myrtle beach"
Cons: "Read above comments"
Cons: "The frustrating portion was the airline's lack of desire to fix our problems. The first flight was late because of mechanical issues and then Air Canada was not at all forthcoming in getting us rebooked on the next flight. Something that should have been quite simple involved me having to fight with workers just to get put on a new flight -- nobody wanted to actually do the work."
Cons: "My Mon couldn't fly because I never have noticed that she needed a Canadian Visa. She came from Mexico with her American visa and the experience buying a ticket with this airline was a nightmare."
Pros: "The food was very good and they serve drinks and water many times. The crew members were very efficient."
Pros: "Very good food. Great range of entertainment -- much better than United, which last year gave no selection for the long rides between Beijing and Chicago"
Cons: "Boarding process. We had four flights on Air Canada, and were put in the last boarding group on every one of them, which makes it hard to get overhead space. It seems statistically impossible for them to assign the worst boarding group to the same people every time, but they did it."
Pros: "Big and spacious plane, plenty of room although room for carry on bags was limited."
Cons: "It took a long time for the plane to take off and we didn't have much communication as to why this was happening."
Pros: "The only positive was the initial price, but even after opting for a price increase to lessen travel time failed with the delays and flight changes."
Cons: "3 out of 4 flights were either delayed, changed, boarding radically changed. An attendant actually had the audacity to sarcastically ask who I was voting for (president) once he new I was American. The customer service rep in Toronto further blamed us for not checking flights 48 hrs in advance, although I checked in 20 hrs earlier and received false flight info. The crew also stated in flight "that those continuing on the the USA, did NOT have to complete customs declaration forms" ....WRONG!"
Pros: "The passenger beside me was nice."
Cons: "Week long convention and showed up 2 hours early. Fell asleep at the gate. Last flight of the night and I was the ONLY person around. None of the 5 staff members thought to wake the middle aged lady asleep by herself. Woke in a panic and they said my flight left a few mins ago. Said they paged me. When I took off my hearing aids they all stood there stunned. They put me on the next flight home 12 hours later. Asked for my bags, no one took them off the plane. Against policy and illegal. Had to sleep at the airport. Very poor experience with the Air Canada staff in Las Vegas."
Cons: "The process to get thru customs was horrible. If there would have been more people working the wait would not have been so bad."
Pros: "EXCELLENT LEG ROOM AND SPACE"
Cons: "THE FOOD SUCKS....EAT A DECENT MEAL BEFORE YOU BOARD. THANK GOD I WASNT HUNGRY OR I WOULD HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED."
Pros: "the flight was on time, without any delay"
Cons: "Variety of movies needs to be improved asap A bag of Pretzels or any type of snack would be a plus"
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"
Cons: "The person checking me in to getting seat assignment must have been having a bad day. She was downright rude."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. The entertainment (monitors in the seat-backs) was excellent. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was much better than I expected on a flight."
Cons: "I flew economy, so I didn't expect luxury, but that's a very tight fit for an 8-hour flight. I understand that industry standards have gone in this direction and that it's necessary to remain competitive, but at some point the industry needs to take into account the actual size of passengers. What are the seats now, about 16" wide? With so little leg room that I couldn't cross my legs if the seat in front of me was reclined. I'm a slim woman, about 130 lbs., and I was very (very) uncomfortable. I can hardly imagine the discomfort for the poor woman next to me (a plump post-middle-aged lady). I would definitely fly Air Canada again, as the staff was great and the overall experience was good. But I'm looking forward to the end of this trend of reducing space per passenger."
Cons: "Trying to take off twice and warning lights came on. We had to sit in the plane for an extra 1.5hrs and an additional hour in the terminal. Third time was a charm"
Pros: "Good selection of viewing content. Wide variety. Like the NFB channel."
Cons: "The food was the worst plane food I have eaten in 25 years of traveling. It wasn't even edible!! Overcooked, dry, tasteless, awful food! Shocking at how bad it was. Bathrooms were very dirty right from beginning of flight."
Cons: "everything-the food is horrible, no space, no monitor so what do you do on an 8 hour flight overseas? When we booked, we were not told that we would be flying Air Canada Rouge, but were told we would be flying a different type of plane with amenities. Talk about Bait and Switch. Will avoid Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Very long line to get to security"
Pros: "See my response to the trip from Denver to Barcelona. I'm not repeating myself. Terrible plain, terrible food. Cabin crew not as bad as gong from Toronto to Barcelona."
Cons: "See my response to the trip from Denver to Barcelona."
Pros: "There was entertainment on board although it was very limited. All of the crew were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "Did not fly Air Canada from Phoenix to Toronto; flew much cheaper version "Rouge". Flight was delayed more than 40 minutes in Phoenix while cargo rearranged, making us late for connection in Toronto (1.5 hour layover initially). Stewardess told us we could make flight if we ran through airport, but when we got to the gate, we were told that we had been rescheduled on another flight 2 days later! Crew on flight did not tell us this. We did manage to get another flight to Frankfurt 2 hours later on Air Canada, then to Barcelona on Lufthansa, arriving 8 hours later than originally scheduled. Rouge flight had fewer amenities than Southwest and less legroom. Did not know what were getting when booked flight -Will never fly Rouge again!"
Pros: "The crew had a problem passenger in first class (I was sitting a few rows back on the other side of the curtain. I noticed that the flight attendant was quickly dealing with something in front but kept her calm and didn't disrupt the overall experience of the passengers. When we landed the police boarded and arrested the man. The people around me didn't even notice anything was going on. I congratulate the Air Canada crew for keeping their cool and they obviously get good training to help them out in these situations."
Pros: "Because of a plane malfunction I ended up meeting 3 very good friends. The flight was okay"
Pros: "The crew in Orlando was efficient and kind to waiting passengers. We were boarded and in the air in record time. Surprisingly, my baggage was unloaded in Toronto in record time. I would hope that that it always the case."
Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about the flight, other than the fact that the crew was compatent."
Cons: "As far as I'm concerned , I didn't fly Air Canada, I flew Air Canada Rouge. Air Canada Rouge is a VERY poor representative of the Air Canada brand. There is NO legroom!!! My seat mate, who is Canadian told me that they reduced the distance by 3 inches from the Air Canada standard. I am not a tall person, I only have a 30 inch inseam, but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Anyone over 6 feet tall would be VERY uncomfortable."
Cons: "From LGA to Toronto the input jack for the headphones was all messed up and I kept having to fiddle with it to get good sound."
Pros: "Everything was well organized and we were able to depart sooner than scheduled."
Cons: "There were some items on the menu that were not actually available."
Pros: "The flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto was excellent and the food was great. I'm definitely using Air Canada in the future!"
Cons: "No free movies. Tight leg room for an international flight. No complimentary beverages. What a huge difference from Lufthansa which we used to fly to Europe. Would avoid Air Canada Rouge of overseas travel."
Pros: "Good landing ahead of scheduled arrival time"
Cons: "Airplane is Too small :)"
Pros: "frankfort to Toronto was Lufthansa. Excellent."
Pros: "Comfy seat, good food, great attentive service and wonderful safe take offs and landings! Also we received extra treats for their inaugural flight from Brussels to Toronto."
Pros: "Two bags plus a carry-on."
Pros: "The crew appeared overworked and understaffed. I feel that there should have been at least 2 to 4 more to help with the large number of passengers on the plane. It appeared to be more than full and perhaps extra seating was added."
Cons: "The plane was overcrowded. Seating was extremely uncomfortable and much too narrow. I am a relatively thin person but the person to my right was large and kept on pushing into me during the entire flight. Plus it took us over an hour and 30 minutes before we left the airport because we had to wait until the entire plane off boarded before a wheelchair could be brought for my wife. After the wheelchair was brought and we picked up our luggage, (2 bags), which by the way were the last 2 on the carousel, there was only one line through customs for people with special needs. By the time we left the airport I spent at least 45 minutes trying to find the cab which had been sent from Rochester, NY to pick us up and when I finally found him he wasn't allowed to stop in the taxi lane to pick us up in the taxi lane because he wasn't an authorized cab in spite of the fact that I told the security person that my wife was in a wheelchair and the weather was close to 0 degrees celsus and it was snowing."
Pros: "My legs barely fit, but it was possible to sit without my knees hitting the seat"
Cons: "No movies, no air vents, reading lights only work sometimes"
Cons: "Late boarding not enough options on their menu since were I got to my hotel at 12:30 after my car rental to listen to please overall how late they were"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "Air Canada has the best food, most leg room for economy class and super efficient. I will be using Air Canada often in the future."

Air Canada staff were very helpful and courteous, they rebooked my flight for the next day and helped me find a hotel for the night. Greatly appreciated!"

Pros: "Overall fair experience."
Cons: "Flight delayed after boarding for 2 1/2 hours. Gate agent was condescending. Gate agent trapped us behind hate when trying to leave delayed flight to catch another leaving on time. They weren't accommodating to providing a refund or better flight. Worst airline experience I've ever had."
Pros: "This was my first Air Canada flight, and I was beyond impressed with the service overall. The plane was extremely nice and very spacious. The flight crew was very attentive and helpful, and had great attitudes. I had trouble with my entertainment screen early on, and a flight attendant went out of her way to reset and make sure it was working for me. The 12 hour flights both ways were comfortable and enjoyable."

Nothing offered to the passengers during this time, not even water."
Pros: "Comfy seats! So nice when you have a comfortable chair"
Pros: "Despite delays the captain was communicative and gracious."

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
