Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."
Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

So we ask them to correct it. They instead break us up into random locations on the flight. That's not even the worst of it. When we get in the aircraft our seats were taken up by other people. we had to wait for everything to pass us inside the tight rows to find other seats even further apart. We payed for seats together."

They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."
Pros: "great customer service!!!"
Cons: "I ordered vgml (vegan meal) a head of time, been confirmed, but non of my most recent 4 flights had it:("
Cons: "They was late for boarding The food is bad It's was my bad experience this travel"
Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"
Cons: "It never happened."

Pros: "With my little boy the seats were so uncomfortable cause of the engine. But the rest was great."
Cons: "Great crew this time."
Pros: "Comfortable and Clean"
Cons: "Need longer transfer time in Frankfurt airport. They use buses to airplanes and that eats up time. Also, passport control line can be long. Fights to and fro gave us barely enough time and we were last ones to board"
Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."

Cons: "I had a swollen and sprained ankle during the flight, I had it resting near the aisle to stretch and move to try and keep it from swelling further. Unfortunately, my injured ankle was kicked several times by a rushed crew member. It would be great if they could be a bit more mindful and watch where they are walking. Also, the breakfast before landing was spoiled when I discovered fungus in my butter after I had already eaten half of it."
Pros: "Got the exit row (great)!"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed but retrieving the bags took a long time. Short flight but food wasn’t appealing and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional"

Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Cons: "I didn’t like selection on movies"
Pros: "Tout était impeccable."
Pros: "Good staff and food."
Cons: "Flight was late and boarding was unorganized. When the person sitting in front of me moved their chair it hit my head and moved all my stuff, this should not happen. We should not feel our area moved because the person moved their seat in front of us."
Pros: "Service. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Service, food, and entertainment was great!"
Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"
Pros: "Still thinking about it."

Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Cons: "The passenger behaind, was a tall guy. All the 7 hours flight i had to fight him to allow me puting my back sest dowm on his hearting legs. Why didnt hay extra and seat where it fits his size?"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Pros: "Premium economy gives you extra confort, more space to sleep better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes."
Cons: "Due to the weather and overbooking, they were not able to provide us with a flight for the same day. So we had to take a 4 hour train, which was also overbooked. We ended up standing up for 4 hours in a crowded train"
Pros: "I like flying with Lufthansa. It is one of the best airlines to fly with but a bit pricey."
Cons: "The food was not good at all. For a flight that cost so much, the food could be better."
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Cons: "Worst food I've ever had inside an airplane. Pretty bad uncomfortable seats as well."
Cons: "It wasn't Lufthansa"
Pros: "The crew. They made an uncomfortable flight acceptable."
Cons: "Boarding confusing and flight experience poor. The crew was the only nice part. The rest, not worth the money."
Pros: "Very efficient, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Staff was very professional, the plain was new and clean. Food and drinks were also good."
Pros: "Nothing, this flight never happened because of the strike."
Cons: "Luthansa rebooked me on BA, and stripped away my Premium Upgrade seating, giving me economy, an aisle seat next to a bathing-challenged male. It was disgusting and re-injured my leg wound."
Pros: "Almost nothing was enjoyable about the overseas Lufthansa flights I took. This particular flight, however, did not make me sick like the initial Lufthansa flight to Europe. I also appreciated that the crew asked the passengers in front of me to put their seats up during meals."
Cons: "The overseas Lufthansa flights have the least space of all the flights and trains I took throughout my trip, including other Lufthansa flights within Europe. The bathrooms were more cramped and fewer in number for an overbooked flight, boarding was disorganized and delayed, the passengers in front of me put their seats all the way back for most of the flight, and seriously, just a few more inches of space would make these long flights 104% better. I think everyone would be happier to fly on less awful planes, including the poor crew who has to deal with miserable passengers."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very friendly. Everything went perfectly."
Pros: "Attention on the counter and at the boarding gate were excellent"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was broken, they changed me seats however that one wouldn't lean, after that went back to the original seat. In the second flight a baby was crying and they did nothing to remediate the situation for those that were around him. In the end I had a very bad flight"
Cons: "Missed my conection flight I wil not recomend air canada or british airlines for anyone"
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
Pros: "Promptness, profesional and nice service. Everything overall."

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "only one type of food offered. presented in a rude way."
Cons: "Why Lufthansa changed my flight connection to where I needed a visa!? So the police treat me like a criminal?!?"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, and a timely take off. The crew was attentive and professional. The entertainment available made the 9 hours go by quickly!"
Cons: "The food was edible but not the best. The bread was especially disappointing-- ice cold and doughy! I hate those reclining seats. When you have your meal tray down it is impossible to move."
Pros: "quiet on-time flight"
Cons: "Overnight flights are usually a pain in the neck, which is obviously not the airline's fault"
Pros: "the staff and boarding service was good"
Cons: "The food was hard to eat and poor quality and flavorless"

Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."

Cons: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag. This was a great inconvenience for us. Never again on Air Canada. I suggest you explore the baggage process used by Delta."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"
Cons: "Surprised one flight that from what it looked to be, once flight took off a older couple came out of the cockpit are and took a seat in business class. I thought I had seen someone in civilian clothes setting in a area right behind the pilots chair. They did return to cockpit area near end of flight"

Pros: "Over all everything was great, except the bags check in"
Pros: "Just a routine flight but done with perfect execution."

Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."

Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "Great food, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Comfort economy okis seats are wide, with good legroom, but did not recline and hard as a rock. Entertainment system hard to use, finding movies very tedious."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Pros: "It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time"

Cons: "No business class"
Pros: "I like service of AF"
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely.

Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."

Cons: "Very bad experience. Delay and lost a bag"
Cons: "OUr departing flight was delayed almost 1 1/2 hours, resulting in a missed connection in Cairo -- this is not uncommon. The connecting flight waited 6 minutes, then left us.

I was also in such a rush that I dropped my passport holder and they picked it up and returned it to me. The food was surprisingly good too. The service during the flight was also very good."
Pros: "Always on- time. Always friendly and approachable staff, very clean seating. EGYPTAIR IS MY FAVORITE AIRLINE!"

Pros: "Nice trip good food"
Pros: "Bathroom was clean, food choices, good entertainment"
Cons: "Food was not hot, left late"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was decent, I was especially impressed by the very wide variety of music to listen to. The crew were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The plane was clean and presentable, especially the lavatories. The seats were comfortable and the blankets provided worked well too."
Cons: "Food was bland and the chicken dish was dry and difficult to chew. Movie selection on the entertainment system was mediocre, with limited variety of films in general and especially limited variety in languages other than English and Arabic. A problem which I encountered on board was a big gap between the ventilation panel at the base of the wall and the flooring, through which the dessert of my meal fell and which presented the risk of losing further items. I hope this is fixed promptly."
Pros: "Almost perfect"
Cons: "They didn't give me a travel kit."
Cons: "Flight delayed for over two hours"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and so cramped. The food was bad. The flight attendants were frustrated and angry. No internet options. The tv shows and movies were all old and there wasn’t very many options at all. Connecting in Cairo was complete chaos and so exhausting."
Pros: "Delays and lack of coordination during boarding process in cairo"
Pros: "Crew was really good and flight was very smooth from Toronto to Cairo"
Cons: "Person behind me kept on kicking my chair"
Pros: "Price was affordable . Short layover. Easy and good flight connection."
Cons: "Poor snacks."
Pros: "The crew whas nice but smill od airplane whas very bad"
Cons: "Upgrade the airplanes"
Cons: "Please note the wrong gate was included on our ticket and announced shortly before the flight so passengers had to run from half way across the airport. Then there were two flights announced for the same gate even though the Baghdad flight was over an hour later. Therefore the gate was jam packed and passengers flying to Amman were unable to access the gate. In all it was complete chaos easily avoided by making sure to correctly identify gates (or leave blank) on tickets and to announce the second flight AFTER the first flight concluded boarding!"
Cons: "why do you have 3 people in 1 row and zero in another?"
Pros: "excellent service excellent food great value for money"
Cons: "would like better entertainment system"
Cons: "Sat on hot plane Cairo to Amsterdam waiting for take off"
Pros: "The crew were so helpful and friendly. Comfortable seats and nice plane."
Cons: "The flight was too short to enjoy their food or entertainment. Coffee was good."
Pros: "Entertainment was better than first leg"
Cons: "Attendant woke me up several times. Bag was destroyed when I picked it up."
Cons: "They opened my bag and took staff out of it"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "Organisation wasn't good..they asked us to board the plane and then said they weren't ready then took them 1.3 hrs to fly oit of the airport . The flight attendant were rude..all of them."
Pros: "We flew to Toronto on the rebooked flight and we were treated very badly by the gate agent who simply told us: Go see customer service, you are not on this flight' without even an attempt to explain why we could not get on to the flight to London. I think they do not respect their customers. Very disappointed with Air Canada' service."
Cons: "Nothing about our trip to London on Air Canada was positive. We had requested vegetarian meals for all our flights. They did not provide us any food on the flight because they did not have our names on the list for Vegetarian meals on the rebooked flight. Our experience with Air Canada was everything that is the worst in airline travel and customer service."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The flight crew were wonderful to interact with and really helpful in accommodating my disabilities. Dinner was mediocre but at least some was available, which I didn't expect on an overnight flight starting after dark. ("Breakfast" was a slice of really tasty banana bread but nothing else.) I really appreciated the presence of outlets and USB ports for charging electronic devices, and that the seats had adjustable headrest flaps. These are essential features on long flights!"
Cons: "It's almost impossible to sleep in economy class seats, even with the adjustable headrests. I recognize that economy is supposed to be the "no frills" class of travel but sleep is not a luxury. Sleep is a basic human need, like food and oxygen. I don't actually believe that offering better accommodations for everyday passengers (off whom the bulk of airline profits are made) is financially unfeasible or unreasonable."
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "Great service, staff very pleasant!"
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"

Pros: "tout était bien - very good"
Cons: "all was good"
Cons: "not even peanuts included on a 6h flight is remarkable"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Dysfunctional entertainment system"
Cons: "put on stand by, while this was a non required stop over to Brussels."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "I was busy on a last minute call during boarding and couldn't lift my carryon with only one hand, so I asked for Mrs Caron a hand to help me steady the carryon while lifting it. She just refused and offered me to hold my phone. She did not give a reason why she couldn't help, cold and distant very far from welcoming, just there for appearance."
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "Even though we checked in early, and had a three hour layover, they managed to delay our bags. It will be also 36 hours until we have them."

Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Food, low quality and low choice entertainment"
Cons: "The service"
Cons: "In Toronto they told us that we most likely will miss our flight. Why?? Plenty of time!! No need for miss information. Ground crew not well trained.No boarding pass was given (which is fine). 1 hour wait because of power failure at the airport in Montreal and then we are about to take off and there was an engine failure so we had to come back again . Not good stuff!!!! How would you feel flying again air canada?"
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The stewardesses don't smile."
Cons: "Seriously no leg room on long flight, uncomfortable, cramped Very delayed flight again."
Cons: "On the Montreal-Athens leg the meal was free but of poor quality and quantity. Breakfast was just a piece of banana bread... No entertainment system in the aircraft. Had to rent iPad with very poor quality earphones (struggled to listen to the movies) Also some of the movies were not adjusted for the iPad which translated into using only a portion of the iPad screen."
Pros: "One bag did not arrive."
Cons: "Their entertainment system relied on customer iPads! Software proved nearly impossible to install. Food service very slow."
Pros: "Friendly crew members"
Cons: "There was more kids then adults in the plane. The food was terrible, surged too late for a flight to a muslin country with almost everyone fasting on board. Once it was served, left side of the plane was served first while kids on the right side claming their meals and not understanding why they are not getting any. The bathrooms were dirty. No screens on board. The seats bead some upholstery work."
Cons: "No food on a five hour flight. Had to buy food this is nickeling and dimming people. They made me miss my connecting flight we sat around in tarmack and no explanation given."
Cons: "Air canada rouge is a no frills low price airline, I probably wouldn't fly with them again despite the price point for that long"
Pros: "very nice people, food ok"
Cons: "Bad organization at Montreal for special passengers, plus technical pb => flight delayed 45mn"
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight, so there was more room to stretch out"
Cons: "Left my luggage behind (both mine and my daughter's) and I still haven't received it 3 days into my trip. Air Canada reps were not very helpful with information or solutions. I was in hold for almost 20min total (international call). Horribly unacceptable. All they initially offered was $50 to cover expenses (insulting)."
Cons: "Temperature too cold in the airplane Ipads to rent (no screens)"
Pros: "Leg space was very tight and overall seating cramped.."
Cons: "One bag was delayed from Montreal to Venice. Required an airport return next day. Flight was not full so we could use several seats to sleep."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The food was surprisingly good. Entertainment choices were varied and generous."
Cons: "My only complaint was that directions were unclear in the transfer flight. Travelers with a transfer in Canada did not have to go through the long customs line, but this was not at all clear, with signage or staff. It was a bit scary with a tight connection and a huge crowd at customs."
Cons: "need to use my peels ask for water -Never get it nasty smell from bathrooms"
Pros: "Great female flight attendant. So sweet."
Cons: "I watched the Big Short, which kept shorting. I had to stop the video about 15 times to get to the end. And one slice of cake is not adequate breakfast."
