I liked the direct flight from ORD-RSW. The plane was relatively new, clean, and in good shape. I didn’t like the two hour delay or the waiting an hour after we landed for my checked luggage. After a scheduled landing of 7:50 PM we didn’t head to our car until after 11 PM.
Cons: "Not push my flight time back"
Pros: "Not much. I got to my destination on time."
Cons: "If the crew had been better and they hadn’t packed every single seat. It is truly amazing - American still packs planes so that there is not one seat available. Getting on and off the plane is a cattle shoot with no room. Pre pandemic this was normal and nothing has changed. They are the only airline that ignores all post pandemic recommendations. If one sees how dirty the planes are I find it hard to believe they are being cleaned more than a cursory dusting."
Cons: "Poor planning caused us to sit on the ramp an hour and a half for a gate to open up."
Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Flight was on time. Luggage was provided in a timely manner."
Cons: "Underseat space for center seats is not adequate for two seats. One the the entertainment screens required multiple resets throughout the flight."
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Offered more of an incentive for the inconvenience"
Pros: "Airline crew was amazing and handled a person in need of medical care great!"
Cons: "The manager at the check in counter was rude and acted as if we were bothering him because we were checking in. He spoke to my husband as if he were a child and kicked another AA staff from behind the desk because he was ‘the manager’. I’ve never witness such unprofessionalism in my life."
Cons: "Seats what happened to towlets after food Also never asked if we would like water etc I felt invisible"
Pros: "The boarding experience was quite smooth. The flight itsekf was very good. I must commend the piolots for doing a wonderful job."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for extra leg room and had to board with Group 7. I think that was ridiculous. I was unable to connect to gogo in-flight internet network. It was the second flight in which it was not available."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was nice."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "the flight was delayed which kept me nervous as I had a connecting flight in the international terminal which I almost missed."
Pros: "Flight was canceled after six hours of waiting"
Cons: "Check in was a disaster with the computer system down. The gentleman that helped us was lovely but system issues kept us at check in a very long time and unfortunately that together with the crazy insanely long distance to our gate- then only to take a bus- we did not have time to pick up any food or make any stops which we counted on and had arrived 2.5 hours ahead of time to check in to allow for."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Baggage took 40+ mins unacceptable"
Cons: "This flight is delayed 8/10. Miserable route"
Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Pros: "Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Bag transfer through customs and transfer to domestic was easy."
Cons: "Snacks and food in general on US operated airlines is generally sad. American Airlines should learn from Qantas about food quality and service."
Pros: "In spite of adverse situations the counter staff was extremely helpful"
Pros: "They went above and beyond to make my travel experience an enjoyable one."
Cons: "That they are not more like them on other airline carriers."
Pros: "We enjoyed the room on the seats and the power outlets were very comfortable. Air Crew was extremely attentive!"
Cons: "Too much space in between meals provided and small portions."
Cons: "No food. Just water Stopped to ask customer service about our gate and the girl was rude stating this is not a gate this is customer service. I asked again is gate correct which was right next to the customer service desk and she said over there"
Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Pleasent crew and a non-turbulance flight."
Cons: "The yougurt splashe all over my shirt when I opened it, too much pressure I guess. No liquor !"
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "For international flight that plane was way to tight. It was like being stuffed in a can for 11 hours. I will try to not fly international with American again."
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Pros: "Gate flight updates"
Cons: "No information on luggage even though they knew luggage was not received in London They could have sent me an update instead of having me wait at carousel for 1:30 hours waiting for my bag to show up"
Pros: "Spaciousness of the middle seat they gave me headphones"
Cons: "Not a thing to complain about wonderful flight"
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Cons: "Older A321 plane, WIFI horrible and no seat back entertainment as on newer A321s"
Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding wasn't an issue, and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "A little chilly, but not horrible."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Gate agent told me my bag would fit under seat but when I got on board found it would not and had to do gate check."
Cons: "Swapping swapping from Liberia Airlines to American to British Airways makes it very very hard to go terminal to terminal"
Pros: "The staff always looked like they were happy to help."
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "As somewhat experienced travelers, we know to keep carry on luggage as tight as possible. I was pleasantly suprised to see that overhead bins were not full! We didn't have seats next to each other initially, but the gate agent put us in the exit row with extra legroom!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful, the magazine was worth reading and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The seat felt like a wooden block was strapped to my back."
Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and the food was decent."
Cons: "Boarded us onto a plane with a broken engine, deboarded the plane and delayed the flight 4 hours. Then we sat on the tarmac for an hour after landing because they didn't inform the airport that we were in a new, larger plane."
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and lots of leg room in the priority seat I purchased in advance"
Cons: "Very bad food"
Air Canada crews are very professional. I am a long time customer and keep going back becausr of how i am treated
Cons: "it took a very long time for take off, and de freezing. That should have been done prior because it made our flight very late arriving in toronto"
Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"
Cons: "First plane was newer, 2nd plane was older."
Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Pros: "Fairly new plane... new and much improved entertainment system..."
Cons: "Air Canada continues to underwhelm me. We left the gate 35 minutes late despite having everyone on board. Then off to de-ice where we sat with a truck outside for ten minutes they did work. It was like they were having a coffee break. The flight and board service was exceptional. Baggage delay of a"
Pros: "Nice new aircraft. Very pleasant seating. Great entertainment"
Cons: "New aircraft was late arriving from toronto as usual and the toilet was busted meaning 25 people had to be shed from the flight to allow it to leave and we were then delayed and hour as baggage was transferred to another aircraft. Not AC's best performance."
Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."
Cons: "This leg was so late...I was waiting in Calgary almost 7 hours... they put me on a different flight so I would make my connector in Toronto to Windsor....I originally had a 2 hour window. The second plane was so late, by the time I landed in Toronto, I had 10 minutes. Needless to say, after starting out in Kamloops at 6 am, that was missed also. Last leg missed as well, and had to wait another 4 hours for the last flight out. Just an incredibly frustrating trip"
Pros: "Movies available. Food available for purchase."
Cons: "It was crowded in the back of the aircraft. Many vacant rows were available, but my advance check in and seat change / upgrade was not available on line. I would have paid to have moved up to an un-occupied section of the aircraft if I could have. My mistake. I should have got up and walked around looking for these vacant seats. Despite the captain announcing that WIFI Internet was available for purchase. There was no WIFI on this aircraft. I am a tech guy. The flight attendant said just use your credit card. NO there was no WIFI available."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving and I had a connection flight - they changed my seat so I could be at the front and get my bag easily and run to get my connecting flight. Everyone was very helpful."
Cons: "Mix up with seating had boarding card reprinted twice and no one could explain why it happened. Staff otherwise were good."
Cons: "My seat was wet and i had to wait quite a while for it to be rectified. I asked to sit on a crew seat at the back of the plane and was told that i would break it. I found this rather disgusting . Seating plan is very crammed like sardines"
Cons: "Cancelled one flight, then delayed another one because they were waiting for a pilot. They offered very little help, citing that they couldn’t control the weather, meanwhile WestJet is finding & paying for rooms, shuttle buses and taxis to make the delay more tolerable and less stressful. We could only watch and wish we were flying WestJet."
Pros: "Everything else was fine/standard."
Cons: "Not all ground staff are crosstrained on how to accept manual payment for extra luggage and had to wait an extra half hour for the only person who can process a debit transaction. Does not make sense..."
Pros: "The staff - they're always pretty good. The food is also very decent - lot's of jokes about airline food but it's not bad."
Cons: "The seats need some sort of engineering redesign - like maybe they all recline in a row. Airplane seats are never comfortable. Also, for entertainment, they offer USB and AC power which is good, but they should also look into upgrading all the tablets and running linux on them or some operating system with less overhead - the movie displays are really slow and unwieldy."
Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"
Pros: "I was reading so much about how cramped and uncomfortable the seats on Air Canadas 787's, but I don't think their product is any worse than most other economy class products out there."
Cons: "Their "continental breakfast" was a dry piece of banana bread and yoghurt. No jam, butter cheese or other spreads to compliment with your bread. Most disappointing "continental breakfast" I have had on a plane!"
Pros: "I was able to change my flight to an earlier one saving me from having to wait 6 hours. I did not have to pay extra for changing my flight."
Cons: "The plane was late and caused me to miss my connecting flight and my very important doctor's appointment."
Pros: "Great staff on plane"
Cons: "Plane was overweight due to the plane carrying luggage from a previous flight. This is poor logistics planning on Air Canada. We were delayed by an hour and waited inside the plane on the tarmac while they removed the extra luggage to reduce weight."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "The prop aircraft that Air Canada uses for the YYC-YEG route are old and cramped. They do nothing for the Air Canada brand."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Pros: "This flight was cancelled; I don't have any remarkably positive comments about it."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for several hours after we had already boarded (due to maintenance, I think), then was unexpectedly cancelled. Air Canada staff did not communicate with us clearly about the cancellation. We asked several staff members for help and some of them simply walked away; seemed like staff did not know what was going on. We over 90 minutes for in-person assistance, only to be directed to a telephone to re-book our flight. We missed an entire day of our trip to Japan. I'm very disappointed in my experience flying Air Canada."
Pros: "Once again, being on time was important to me. Crew members were nice."
Cons: "I wish they would've offered free snacks on this flight given how long it was. It would've also been to nice to have been forewarned about needing to go through security again, as I had a U.S. connection from Toronto. That takes a lot of time, even with a bit of a layover."
Pros: "Good leg room in coach"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, the boarding process was messed up and could not understand the person doing the announcements (was speaking too fast)..."
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours, half and hour in the airport and another 1.5 hours on the tarmac (probably why I got sick just days after, sitting in the germ tube for that long) Seat did not recline, but was supposed to... No pretzels or peanuts offered like other airlines, just drinks Missed my connecting flight in LAX because of delay, but not after running frantically to my gate clear on the other side of LAX, customer service offered nothing to compensate for the flight we had just missed or any solutions for getting us home."
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Cons: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were narrow and sitting in aisle seat you were constantly hit every time cabin crew took trolley up / down aisle. Woke up by cabin crew banging into me."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours, however the boarding was efficient and the crew were very friendly."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."
Pros: "the seat beside me was open"
Cons: "they made us rush through customs while yellig at us nd being very condescending then we waited an hour to board because the airport door wouldn't open for the crew"
Cons: "The lady who checked us in caused a major problem with seating. The person I was traveling with was blind and I was her guide. We specifically asked to be seated together and the lady told me we were. I even confirmed with her and she told me yes again. When we boarded we found out our seats were 17 rows apart. I found out that she did this for the connecting flight as well (not as far apart but still not together) this caused a great deal of stress as I couldn't help her when I needed to."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Asked flight attendant to fill up sons water bottle as we had to empty it before we went through security and I forgot to refill it. Flight attendant was very rude and made a big deal out of having to fill it. Just felt her reaction was over board and quite uncalled for."
Pros: "This flight ended up arriving at the final destination a day later instead of first thing in morning last thing at night."
Pros: "Having the leg room of the emergency aisle"
Cons: "29f is marked as a window seat, it is not. It's an emergency exit. No outlets were provided so I had nowhere to charge my phone. My on flight entertainment system was stuck in the out away position. I was very sick and the emergency exit had a terrible draft upon landing"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"
Cons: "I had a last minute seat assignment (middle seat) in both legs of my flight. AC lost my bags and a day later only retrieved one of them. Still waiting for my second bag."
Cons: "Too many people with more than two bags. You have to force more people to put there bags in the plane storage not overhead. Two many carry-on bags and people had back packs with another bag, some computer bags. It takes too long to board the plan"
Pros: "Super fast and easy process. Glad I flew air Canada"
Cons: "I had to pay for the food for my 4hr flight. It use to be that you were provided the food at no additional cost."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I did not have to pick up me luggage for my connection flight & I have priority sitting and receiving luggage at NYC"
Cons: "You let too many people on with multiple bags and it is a struggle to get them stored in the overhead compartments."
Pros: "Comfort of seats and spaciousness of the plane"
Cons: "Agent off loaded me and only me from return flight with zero reason. Second flight I was put on was delayed 2 hours. Sat for 5 hours in the airport for a 1 hour domestic flight. Customer service was terrible. Emailed Air Canada 4 days ago and have yet to recover any response."
Pros: "They had a wheelchair accessible for me and delivered me to my waiting party."
Pros: "Entertainment system might have been nice if the earphone plug worked."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat of all time because it was broken but the flight attendant didn't care."
Cons: "The person behind me kept kicking my seat and yelling at me to not recline my seat. I called a crew member over and asked if I wasn't allowed to and he said well she does have long legs. I paid for economy knowing the room that I was going to be given .. If she didn't like having her legs squished she should have upgraded her seat and the crew member shouldn't have allowed me to be uncomfortable and not having the same luxuries as the rest of the customers."
Pros: "my upgrades, I love them, thank you"
Cons: "mini pillows and eye masks :)))"
Cons: "We waited a long time for Get checked bags to be brought out for pick up"
Pros: "Flight was on time and inflight entertainment was very enjoyable"
Pros: "The one flight attendant was good."
Cons: "Everything else needed improvement"
Pros: "On point booking, no issues"
Pros: "Efficient and friendly. Good service and good entertainment."
Pros: "Enjoyed the meal. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Deplane no fault to anyone just a bummer to get a late start."
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "I tried to cancel my flight due to a 45 min transfer but I wasnt able to and to change it was more expensive than to buy a new ticket with another company"
Cons: "Delays in flights were a disappointment"
Cons: "Missed connection due to mechanical"
Pros: "Comfortable airplane even in economy. All on time and good service."
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "Very crowded, packed in like sardines and the plane was uncomfortably warm!"
Pros: "Timeliness and staff were the stars"
Cons: "Having to use your own device to watch a movie"
Cons: "Was a disaster we’re stuck at the airport for 3 1/2 hours delayed the flight.... gave us a vautcher for 10$ canadian by the time everything at the airport was closed for food. There were no space for our luggage. Spend 12 hours at airports from Victoria to Las Vegas."
Pros: "That I eventually made it home."
Cons: "Flight from Calgary to Denver delayed three and half hours. Informed of this delay thirty minutes before scheduled departure when our plane hadn’t even left Denver yet to head to Calgary. ( 2.5 hr flight) once finally made it to Denver was informed that we missed connecting flight to Boston. We were then informed since it’s for “weather” reasons earlier in the day that caused a sequence of delays they couldn’t accommodate us for hotel. We were given two “blankets” which were as thin as a sheet and each one bottle of water. Some other people around us received good voucherS. We did not. We walked around the airport for close to an hour looking for anyplace we could lay down and sleep. None were to be found. We tried to sleep on the floor but was so cold and uncomfortable I literally got sick to my stomach. Another fun thing added to mix. We were placed on another flight as 6 the next morning. After no sleeping at all we boarded our next flight Which was not a direct flight to Boston but would be from Denver to Newark then Newark to Boston. We were suppose to originally land in Boston at 0600 Monday. Instead we arrived at 1430 after getting zero sleep. My husband and I were also unable to sit together which was extra special for people around me because after not sleeping I continued to be sick to my stomach."
Pros: "Extraordinary efforts to accommodate bags in the overhead bin."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Quick."
Cons: "Waiting 15 minutes before. Able to unload"
Pros: "GREAT crew members"
Pros: "Flight left on time and attendants friendly"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They behaved with humor, grace, kindness and professionalism."
Cons: "The seats are sooooo cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was a bit less expensive at first, but the charges added up quickly. My only complaint really is that the booking was through Air Canada and the flight was operated through United Airlines. It wasn’t a problem for me but if you only have a Visa debit card and want to pay for checked bags online, this is not possible to do online prior to checking in. You also can’t check in to your flight as you would normally, you get the last available seats and have to pay for any seat changes. All in all, I’d still book through Kayak but I’d make sure that the flight I booked was through the company that operates the flights. It’s will give you more options when checking in to the flight."
Cons: "I was put through a third party airline that had no control of the final booking procedure that I was used to. I could not choose seats or add checked luggage on my visa debit, I needed a credit card. This wasn’t a problem but it could pose problems for some people."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t that helpful."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Claustrophobic seating"
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment option on this leg of my journey, which makes a four-hour flight seem long."
Cons: "We were not informed about the cause of the delay without asking at the departure desk and other carrier planes flew to San Francisco while our flight continued to be delayed. The posted time also was erratic both at the airport and on the app for the people meeting us. Luckily our time was flexible so though frustrating and inconvenient we managed OK."
Pros: "They left my luggage in Calgary. I still don't know what flight they're returning it on it has to go to SF and then Fresno. Make sure you have a tag number for your luggage!!!"
Pros: "Direct flight. Took off on time and landed early. Decent amount of leg room and friendly staff. Overall very smooth experience."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "we waited in the runway for over an hour, my bags also didn't make my connection, the crew never apologized"
Cons: "It would have been great if a movie was provided."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster!"
Pros: "Flight was on time or early which is just what you want"
Cons: "Nothing to say here"
Pros: "This was the worst and most stressful trip of my life. Heard of Murphy's law? Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. And did go wrong again. And again. It wasn't my fault or the people's fault, but an unfortunate chain of circumstances. And United personnel helped me deal with so many challenges and went above and beyond their duty. On the trip to Calgary my flights were delayed, I was denied boarding or the flight was canceled. It took me 3 days to get to my destination and this happened after I arrived 4 hours in advance for every flight, but the first one. I did everything I could in my power, but my best was not good enough. And so when my rental car broke down two hours before my departure, and I failed to start it, I took a cab to YYC and hoped for the best. And United didn't disappoint. They listened to me, respected me and tried to help me as much as they could. My leg cramped and I was not able to cross the hallway to the flight, just as the boarding was starting. The board agents called the wheelchair, walked over to me and tried to calm me down, just as they were wrapping up boarding. They then checked my luggage and held me by the hand all the way to the airplane,"
Cons: "Once again, the agents did the best they could given a set of highly unusual circumstances. Yet the flight was one hour late for a very predictable reason. In the winter it snows in Calgary. You have to de-ice the plane. This takes time. Yet, the airline treated snow as emergency and didn't allow time for that. One hour delay stressed a lot of people out and canceled their plans. Do allow for more time for travel in the winter. It is cost effective and leaves customers happier."
Cons: "Typical American passengers ignoring crews request to NOT place coats and small items in overhead bin. I had to have a "discussion" with passenger to please put coat under front seat. I don't know how crew could be more assertive with this item"
Pros: "Nothing about 9 HOURS in an Airport is great! I walked from where I landed coming from Calgary, to terminal 2 Gate F 17 because that was where the flight to Lexington was to leave from. Then I got notice it was leaving from terminal 1 Gate B 24 so (I'm sure I walked a mile there) to get there. Waited for a number of hours checked my phone and found the departure was back again at terminal 1 Gate F 17!?!?! So I walked another mile back to where I started. At no point was I offered a drink or meal voucher for the 9 hour delay/inconvenience in my flight to Lexington ky. Suffice to say that I will NEVER go on any flight if I have to go back through this airport. I also have horrible knees, which all the walking did not help."
Cons: "I would like to say that as a person with a disability, there is not any support for help getting around. They have plenty of for lack of a better term "golf carts"; but no one utilizing them. Not that I am a world traveler; but this airport could take more than a page from Calgary international in terms of support to those with disabilities. I will NEVER and I do mean NEVER go through something like this again. I expected to be home in Lexington at 5:00pm and did NOT arrive until midnight.??!! This is in my opinion quite unacceptable! What a way to spend a hard earned vacation day! Thanks Luanne Steele"
Pros: "I got from point a to point b."
Cons: "The seats keep getting smaller and more people are being packed in. Not enough lavatories for passengers."
Cons: "We were at the counter 57 min before flight. They would not consider letting us on the flight even though no one else was in line. My father had a heart attack and i was trying to get home. Zero bending the rules."
Pros: "I was upgraded to 1st class"
Cons: "I was not able to check in on the day before. Flight was delayed because flights in and out of SFO had ceased. We we not given any other information. We didn't know if it was weather in the airport was on lockdown. No one was at the customer service desk. The gate agent said they would not rebook but did not know when the flights would resume"
Cons: "The fact that my wife and I were not able to check in at kiosk is a technology problem, and then we waited in line forever as United tried to deal with other large group of problem customers. Because if their bad service we missed cutoff, even though I had already checked In and we had no checked bags. We We were forced to pay for hotel our of our pocket, get another rental car, and change itinerary to have to go through Denver to get back to Chicago and arrive a full day later, causing havoc with work schedule and coverage for kids. Thumbs down United! I used to be 1K with you, this Is why I don't fly this airline often."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly and cooperative."
Cons: "Process for customs was not well explained (where/how to meet up with bags for customs process). We went through customs on the second leg of the flight with barely enough time to get through customs and then back through security at the Calgary airport. Our flight had been unilaterally changed by the airline due to too tight a connection but the new flight (much less convenient, had to get up at 3:00 am) was as bad or worse. We would have missed our connecting flight if it had not been delayed due to weather at our destination."
Cons: "Flying at the back of the plane is just not as nice of a trip."
Pros: "I like the united have a lot of flight to a lot of places in USA and orther country."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Space is tight and a drink and 1 oz. of pretzels can hardly be called food."
Pros: "It was a normal flight."
Cons: "The flight was around 20 minutes late leaving, and when we got to San Francisco, there was a lot of fog, and we got delayed another 40 minutes."
Pros: "Boarding from back to front...right on!!!"
