Pros: "The crew was excellent and we appreciated the ability to change seats after takeoff."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Ordered a vegan meal for flight companion pre-flight; we *both* received a vegan meal (it seems like people with incompatible diets cannot book their flights together). Flight seemed to have run out meals since a random third person in my row requested an extra meal and was told they were out. Flight etiquette of other passengers would have been nice; for example, it was also fairly unsafe for a father and child to keep walking up and down the aisles, let alone the bumping into people they kept doing."
Pros: "I had to cancel the flight because the have customer service very poor in air New Zealand vancouver BC agents the could not solve a simple problem in esta that happened to me similarly in Australia with the same problem of esta if they are not efficient they should be replaced there many good candidate for airlines in Vancouver BC"
Cons: "Improve customer services"
Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Cons: "Preferred seats in economy class are very uncomfortable if your row is full. Long, miserable flight."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Everything was good except....."
Cons: "The departure gate lounge for connecting flight to Vancouver was terrible.... very overcrowded, making for an unpleasant wait and boarding experience."
Pros: "The sky couch is always very nice."
Cons: "We told the crew the water tasted funny, like dirt, they said it was fine, just had lemon in it. Pretty sure we know the difference between lemon and dirt taste."
Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"
Cons: "The check in at premier lounge wasn’t as good as before for bussiness elite !"
Pros: "Qatar Airways are still flying, in the midst of Coronavirus, unlike their competitors. This is fantastic! Onboard, there was a full service and excellent crew, all through the night, unlike their competitors during the early days of Coronavirus, when I last flew. Thank you. Qatar Airways"
Cons: "The movie selection, although vast, was not great. I resorted to downloaded Netflix on my tablet."
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."
Cons: "Qatar Air! So refreshing to have good service just when I thought it was gone in this "modern" world..."
Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"
Cons: "Flight attendants should care the passengers and provide the best service. Otherwise there is no use paying expensive flight tickets and travelling on Qatar"
Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"
Cons: "food quality is not very good: sometimes it was hard to see what it actually was and it tasted like that too. headrest in the new plane is not comfortable at all as it is rigid and can only be moved up and down."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat. The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"
Pros: "Plane was clean and modern. Staff was very courteous. An overall pleasant flight."
Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."
No individual entertainment screens on this flight. Would have been nice to know beforehand.
Pros: "I like the free check-bags"
Cons: "I like that if I can select the seats for free after booking ."
Cons: "Absolutely hopeless baggage delivery/collection. Almost as long as the flight"
Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"
Cons: "Only had overhead video displays, not individual ones in the back of the seat, so no choice of entertainment. No matter, I read a book!"
Pros: "Tge flight and landing were uneventful"
Cons: "One hour delay taking off. Departure gate change. Cramped seating. When plane totally loaded, further wait for ground crew to load baggage. No refreshments until way late due to delay. Water should have been offered during the delay due to loading."
Cons: "Why have priority baggage when it doesn’t seem to work, except in inverse proportions"
Cons: "Only podcasts, couldn't find music to listen to while I worked."
Pros: "Excellent customer service !! Great crew down the back !!! (Except they didn’t want to take my banana peel when collecting rubbish?). Will have to carry off plane which is annoying ?!?"
Cons: "Entertainment system not working for our row of seats"
Pros: "The food choices were lovely, plenty of bathrooms and touch screen entertainment (albeit with an outdated feeling and clunky interface.) The skycam was the best part of the entertainment interface options, giving you an outside view of the plane at all times from a camera at the top of the plane tail. Watching the plane during its descent and landing was very cool."
Cons: "I’ve flown in tight-spaced economy seats before, but the lack of space to even bend over to reach items on the floor was extreme on this plane and unacceptable for a 15+ hour flight. It truly felt like a straightjacket. Serious acrobatics were required to reach items on the floor. The tray table would also fly down on its own, the lever holding it would slide free while I was sleeping. There was no wifi at all, not even for using the qantas apps. My fiancé flew on Virgin the week before and was able to purchase wifi and stay in touch with me for $19 for the duration of the flight. Even my flight earlier this year with Qantas on the Dreamliner lacked usable wifi, but the experience of the Dreamliner plane itself was wonderful. In addition, the usb ports on the end of the armrests weren’t working. I feel it should be part of the safety briefing to point out where the usable power points are, given how vital charged phones are these days for boarding passes, reaching loved ones and entertainment when the wifi isn’t working. I didn’t realize there was a plug for laptops/ block plugs until I asked about the USB ports not working until the last 2 hours of the flight. The location of that was somewhere few would notice or look if not explicitly told. This will be the last time I ever book with Qantas when an a380 model is involved, unless great overhauls and updates are completed. Economy should not lack basic ergonomic comforts and while I’ve spent years touting my love for Qantas, having had wonderful experiences in the past, this one fell far below what I had come to expect from the Qantas name."
Actually I’ll complain because there was not even a coffee served. In a 6 hour stay in the aircraft, not one meal not one decent service. It’s a shame. Instead I was charged an extra fee for baggage(just by aircanada) The second part of my route was done by Swiss, which offered 2 good quality meals, regular beverage supply for almost equal flight time.
Do yourself a favor and find another airline! Air Canada doesn’t give two ***ts about their customers. My 78 year old mom was diverted to another city, given no assistance and left over 24 hours at Toronto Pearson. When they finally got her on a flight, she was left on the tarmac for over 2 hours with little to no A/C before canceling the flight again!!! Garbage!
Air Canada lost my luggage and I didn't get it back until more than 24 hours after arrival. Flight was otherwise fine, largely on time and unremarkable.
Terrible baggage handling and customer service. Complete incompetence ruined out trip
Departed 90 minutes late, which makes it a much longer flight.
Flight left on time, Landed early. Very pleasant experience all round.
It was delayed 4 hours for a flight of 1h its ridiculous!!
Cons: "I didn’t fly out of Philadelphia because the flight was 5 hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Had to go get my luggage, go home and try to fly today! Terrible! All my plans screwed up!"
Pros: "There was more legroom than I expected."
Cons: "Departure was delayed by hours due to the Air Canada computer systems going down. That made it an even later redeye, but the cabin crew insisted on waking everyone up to serve dinner at 2am. Boarding in Toronto was a mess, and the details about what was wrong were very sketchy."
Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."
The only problem I had with this being my first flight was primarily on me having a large luggage and with the flight delay, having our layover be cut short. I had to go straight to the gate and may have almost missed it. Thankfully the digital boarding pass was easily accessible to be able to board.
Cons: "Higher Priced seating was left empty and people were not spaced properly in the cheap seats in the back despite the extra room on board at takeoff."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Gate agent at SF was rude and unprofessional. While waiting, gate agent at gate 65, flight 647 started the following, “group 1 boarding, group 2 boarding...everybody, let’s go let’s go”. She went on to call out one, Hispanic customer with limited English, “come here, you can board now”, rude rude."
Pros: "The crew was great, very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Literally everything could have been better: Cancelled my reservation for no reason, and had to be on the phone for 2 hours to rebook Could not get me an upgraded seat because the "system wasn't working" Flight was delayed multiple times Forced to check carryon despite tons of open space No leg room"
Pros: "Speedy departure and arrival early"
Cons: "There were a few bumps. Would be nice to use points for seat upgrades"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very sweet and helpful."
Cons: "Every.single.time I take this flight we sit and wait for upwards of 30 minutes for someone to be available to park/unload the plane. The wait is so consistent it’s ridiculous."
Pros: "The comfort on board for economy class was great, I didn’t feel like a sardine in a tin can. The configuration of the Boeing 787 was also excellent. The crew was as well also great. Overall we were quite surprised."
Pros: "First off I’m a Diabetic and some of my diabetic medication and or supplies are with me and some in my LOST checked luggage. I currently say lost because it Day 3 in Ibiza and the luggage never left Newark with my flight originally and is supposedly in Barcelona while I’m here. Called everyday for updates on my bag and they give you very little useful info. Oh and the 7:45 departure last Thursday didn’t leave until 2:30am, then they kicked us out of our economy plus seats picked for comfort and tossed us in middle aisle seats some place else which were ridiculously uncomfortable. There’s no entertainment except in first class and this is a 777 huge jet. Filing a claim, sending a letter to their ceo, a letter to he DOT, and grabbing a good lawyer friend for counsel on this because it’s a disaster. I had to buy everything I needed which isn’t enough and I’m also running out of diabetic supplies since the rest I’d my lost / delayed luggage. So delayed flight by 6hrs, kicked out of original seats, lost and delayed luggage, airlines seems to refuse to send it to my hotel through other carriers, 3days and no luggage and wondering if they are going to send it to Ibiza while I’m heading back to Barcelona today. No one calls me or emails or updates me on any status changes of where my bag is and what’s going on. Their customer service sucks and it’s some guy or girl in another country who gives no fks about your situation. I will never fly with United again"
Cons: "Everything see above"
Pros: "I love having only 2 seats on each side."
Cons: "We boarded the same time as another flight. we used the same gate door, announcements were being made by both gate attendants and 1 mistakenly used our flight information. There were several passengers who were confused! Maybe it's an LAX issue?"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "I was on a business trip and needed internet during this 10 hr flight from London to San Fran. Paid 40 bucks for internet and got abt 15 minutes of it. Extremely frustrating. Flight attendants bewildered about what to do about it."
