Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."

Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."

Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."

Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "On time great baggage retrieval"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, half the time the staff did not use the PA system. They were not clear on who needed to do a passport check. Started to read names off then just gave up and said "a lot of you""
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1hr"
Pros: "Emergency exit seat row had so much room!"
Cons: "Chairs are not comfy and no entertainment"
Cons: "Itinerary changes including a late minue "cancelled flight" with one with "new" number and onl;y 6 minutes difference...very confusing. Overall electronic management system needs work"
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Pros: "Cramped seats for someone 6 foot 5."
Cons: "Nothing, I just hate flying"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 2 hours without explanation or apology. The entertainment system did not work on my computer.

Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "The airport staff was horrendous."
Pros: "Good leg room clean airplane"
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 hours and i received a 15 dollar voucher as compensation. Westjet can pound sand."

Pros: "Flying with west jet is always a great experience. The crew always make you feel welcome."
Cons: "They didn’t offer coffee on this particular flight."
Pros: "Affordable, great service, and easy"
Cons: "The internet and TV service were both broken on the flight. I missed out on much of the work I had to do. I was very disappointed that we were only told just minutes before boarding. I was not prepared to spend 5 hours on a flight with a screaming baby, unable to work or watch tv."
Pros: "getting to Vancouver in short time."
Cons: "No movi"
Pros: "The basics were all up to standard, the flight was very full and because it's such a long flight it is expected to have a few discomforts from time to time..."
Cons: "TURN DOWN THE VOLUME on the announcements, it was so loud I could feel the book I was holding in my hands literally vibrating. I had to plug my ears to tolerate the blasts over the PA. I requested the volume be turned down repeatedly but it was never changed... from London to Calgary. More frequent offers for food/beverage would be appreciated, there were only two rounds made for the entire flight of almost 9hrs. It's just nice to have a bit more flexibility..."
Pros: "It was a quiet flight. Quick loading. Got to sit with my friends."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Less leg space, price of bags to high, too many people bring on over-sized carry on taking up all the overhead bins. No entertainment options for flight"
Pros: "The flight was good but it was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The hour delay was an incomvience."
Cons: "How is it that in a 5 hours flight you don’t be get any food for free? You have to pay for every meal. And the entertainment system isn’t only available through the west je to app but i didn’t know that until I board the plane wtf"
Pros: "Crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Having only one bathroom at back of the plane was a surprise ."
Pros: "Short, but sweet flight"
Pros: "Our flight from Australia was delayed, resulting in our missing our connecting Westjet flight. Not only did Westjet get us on the next available flight, but the staff were friendly and very helpful. They made it seem like it was no problem at all, even though we were on the cheapest fare."
Pros: "The westjet staff is wonderful!"
Cons: "the lack of information during the delay"
Pros: "When we took off I almost blacked out in my seat (low blood sugar). The person seated next to me paged the flight crew and they were very quick to respond. The crew were super nice, very helpful and got me back on my feet by giving me some apple juice to drink. Overall just a great response and I'm super thankful."
Cons: "The reasons that I book with Westjet are that the attendants joke with each other, appear to really enjoy their jobs, and provide over the top customer service. On this flight no one was jovial or smiling, the garbage sat on our trays for the majority of the flight. The attendants spoke to each other more than the passengers. Very disappointing!"
Pros: "Bravo for being such amazing human beings. Much obliged for a wonderful flight. Merry Christmas"
Pros: "Staff very friendly"
Cons: "Not enough room"
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding! Small overhead but crew took larger bags under the plane for no charge."

Pros: "Carousel number although we only had carry-on"
Cons: "Sat be side large man. Took up too much space."
Pros: "Plane was comfy and on time"
Cons: "No west jet connect or in seat entertainment. Had to rent. Seems like a money grab"
Pros: "Aisle seat and the crew was great!"
Pros: "My brother had a heart attack and I was traveling out Edmonton to be within and his family. It’s a stressful time and I meant to book for Nov 7 but booked Nov 9 by accident. The person at the checkin desk was wonderful. Changed my booking and checked my bag without any charge. It made a very stressful situation so much better, I really appreciate the staff who went out of her way to help me."
Pros: "The West Jet reps everywhere were calm, cool, and friendly. I thought they were terrific. In Edmonton, the women from West Jet did their best to help and keep the waiting disgruntled passengers informed. In Kelowna, when I discovered my luggage was still in Calgary, the West Jet rep was cheerful and helpful. How could I possibly be annoyed?"
Cons: "Wrong. I ended up in Kelowna."
Pros: "The staff were so helpful to travellers with small children and elderly travellers. They looked like they really enjoyed their jobs...Well Done Christine S North Vancouver"
Pros: "Excellent. Again staff was very courteous and caring. Smooth comfortable flight all the way."
Cons: "the seats are a bit confining."
Cons: "It was crowded on the flight, fully booked"
Pros: "It was on time and short"
Pros: "Go from point a to point b"
Cons: "Westjet will nickel and dime you for everything. Did a +9h flight from Vancouver to London and no meal is included during the whole flight. They keep trying to upsale you for everything. Not only is the food expensive it is also real garbage. Flight was delayed by 75 minutes and nearly missed my connection. Of course no checked baggage is included in your already expensive ticket. You have to fork in another 30$ for the privilege of checking luggage. WestJet pretends to offer 200-300$ cheaper plane tickets compared to the competition, but this is false. I found plenty of other flights for same or even cheaper prices with quality airline companies like Lufthansa or Air Canada that include a meal and checked baggage and other perks, but in my case I had already booked. I really recommending you looking for other airline companies for any flight that is not short haul. WestJet's slogan is an airline company with owner that care... Whatever the hell that means. Maybe someone can explain? WestJet brags about it's outstanding customer service while at the same time cutting every corner possible on service. Kind of a contradiction."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival"
Pros: "Flight attendants were so nice."
Cons: "There was no info about the visa requirement and that made me stressed out once I tried to check in. Seats were too small"
Pros: "westjet connect to watch a tv show or the news or something"
Pros: "Everything was great!!"
Cons: "Great service from Aeromexico. We flew from Tijuana to Guadalajara and carry on is free. Beverages are free. If you check in luggage, it's the least expensive from the 3. Great airline..."
Cons: "1h late departure, but we arrived at the expected time. Seats were not very confortable, but everyone had an individual tv. We bought a flight Montreal-Mexico-Panama City, but for some reasons, it was impossible to get boarding passes for the second part of this flight... We had to check-in again in Mexico city."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "The lunch could be better with a cracker or Bread."
Pros: "Crew was grate, service also grate, movie a+."
Cons: "Food choice could work, in my opinion. So far there is none, even do, what you serve is not bad. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Departure delayed. Seat does not recline. Not even a good foot rest. On first class."
Pros: "Great crew, free liquor, yummy snacks."
Cons: "No delays!"
Pros: "The lunch was good, the team was nice and the flight went well!"
Cons: "Changed the plane when it broke down not have us sit in it for 3 hours while being fixed."
Pros: "I love to fly with aeroMexico. service and safety."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "We were on time"
Pros: "The new plane. The food."
Cons: "No entertrainment system the whole trip. The flight was delayed over an hour due to overbooked flight."
Cons: "Horrible and first flight was 1h45min late which made me miss my connecting flight. The transit airport was also a horrible experience to spend many endless hours in."
Pros: "the crew was very gentle."
Cons: "I could not get my chair in a more confortable position to sleep, it did not work. Because of that my 6 hour and a half trip was very long and unconfortable and i ended up with pain in my lower back."
Cons: "In the counter people were rude (as always) and the first guy that helped us didnt found us. A lot of time wasting and not much staff to check-in."
Pros: "Overall great experience. The snacks provided were good and staff was quite friendly."
Cons: "Seats were not the most comfortable"
Pros: "excellent atention"
Pros: "The staff on board was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Once again the gate crew was rude. I was in line behind a family that had trouble with paperwork and once they finished let them through then sent me to the very back of the last line to board. I do not speak fluent Spanish and when I tried to clarify was told very curtly “ontra linea” and he forcefully pointed to the back of the line and turned away."
Pros: "We booked premier class and enjoyed the extra comfort. The first leg of the trip went well."
Cons: "The second leg of our trip had a flight cancellation, so we got bumped out of premier class even though we had already paid for it. There was an 8-hour delay in Mexico City and the second leg of our trip was no-frills, so we have to go through Aeromexico's online process to get reimbursed."
Pros: "Excellent customer service and they actually served us delicious dinner, no pretzels nor peanuts ...very impressed !"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and missed my connecting flight, they had me going all over LAX and took 3 hours to finally put me in a standby. Aeroméxico and Delta kept blaming each other and obviously I was really frustrated."
Pros: "They were understaffed and because of this I lost my flight and still had to pay 30$ for my luggage"
Pros: "It was quick and easy to get through everything"
Pros: "From checking in and the flight attendants are extremely friendly."
Cons: "That we are going for such a small time!!"
Pros: "Great experience overall on this flight, only problem was that my lie-flat seat was broken and would only recline. Good food, great crew. Staff at Aeromexico Premier Salon Lounge were OUTSTANDING! Food could have more assortment, but was better than most lounges in the USA."
Cons: "lie-flat seat was broken and would only recline, so didn't really get what I paid for. I wasn't the only person with the problem, as 2 other seats were the same. MEX airport desperate need renovation. It looks like something from the 60's that hasn't been maintained well. Not up to standard for a country's Capital City."
Pros: "No waiting at the counter. Personal assistance. TSA preference. Free coffee and cookie.Thanks!"
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: ""Free" booze."
Cons: "Some of the worst service I have seen. Odd hours to wake and feed passengers, and restrictions on bathroom usage."
Cons: "mexicos airport was very unorganized. specially whdn picking up our luggage"
Pros: "I had no problems and everything ran smooth."
Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"
Pros: "Punctuality, good film selection."
Cons: "Food was extremely bad."
Cons: "A lot of waste of time"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"
Cons: "There was a 5 hour delay which caused me to miss my connection. After standing in line for 3 hours, They did not get me the same day flight and put me on a Latam air flight and asked me to take the bus to terminal 1. When I spoke to the person on Latam air they said they don’t have a ticket for me and sent me back to terminal 2 via a bus where Aeromexico desks were. I stood in another line for 3 hours! Then they told me there is no flight and they will put me on the next day flight. However they did not provide any help or accommodation for the night I had to stay in Mexico which felt very very unsafe to me."
Cons: "Food quality was poor changed to smaller plane st last minute and had to get seats reassigned, no gin on the plane. Flight was delayed , your website was slow and could not do check in over the web, when I️ got to the counter 3 hours before my flight I️ was still delayed because I️ couldn’t do an online check in. Made it to the gate with one hour to spare but don’t think you should penalize people because of your own issues"
Pros: "THE ATTENTION WAS EXCELENT . NOT DELAYES, EVETHING WAS GOOD LETICIA ESPINAL"
Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "late boarding"
Pros: "Technical difficulties"
Cons: "Waited 7 hours"
Pros: "Everthing in the flight was good"
Cons: "Gate was changed before bording, gates closed before plane departure time regardless of not all passengers present. Missed the flight and Aeromexico made us pay to grab another flight while it was Aeromexico personel that refused to allow us in even though it was not yet departure time and said plane doors were closed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, both at the airport and in the air. It was nice to have meals served, even on the very short flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport to find that they had overbooked the plane and our family's 4 seats were in jeopardy. We had to wait until they had processed everyone else in line, even though we had gotten there first, because either they were in the "sky priority" line or because maybe they had pre-bought their seat assignments. After a tense 20 minutes of waiting, they closed the flight and let us have our seats. Then, at the gate, they confiscated two of our most important carry on bags and checked them because they said that children are not allowed a carry on item -- despite paying full freight for their seats! It was very nerve-wracking at our arrival destinations as these two items were not padlocked and were the very last to come on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "Plane attendants were nice"
Cons: "They lost our luggage and we spent over 2 hrs trying to figure out what happened and they wrote down all the wrong info and the info they gave us to contact them wasn't accurate so it was a headache just trying to reach anyone!!"
Pros: "Good flight, excelent schedule"
Cons: "Flight Over sold (20 people)."
Cons: "I didn't like that Aeromexico didn't want to change my flight I had an family emergency and they don't care they just told me they cannot change my flight at all"
Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."
Cons: "Faster boarding. Decense and luggage arrival."
Cons: "Waited from scheduled boarding to when the flight was cancelled- 3 hours and then little help from Aero Mexico to rebook to final destination in a reasonable time. Was promised a full refund of cancelled booking with Aero Mexico and as of 4/17- 0"
Pros: "La atencion del personal"
Cons: "Todo me gusto"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Pros: "Everything was on time considering the heavy Holidays travels."
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Cons: "Food quality"
Cons: "This flight, along with the bulk of AA flights, were cancelled, leaving me stranded and missing work meetings."
Pros: "No amazing crew, just average. The should airline should have follow through on a specific request, but the airline's computer wipes out such things."
Cons: "Airlines should listen to the requests of the passengers."
Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Pros: "Fast boarding, flight relatively smooth, got to my destination pretty quickly as well."
Cons: "Typical tight seating, aircraft showing age."
Cons: "The wifi signup process not seemless with Android."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the flight attendant was very helpful with all the questions I had, thanks for the wonderful first time flying."
Cons: "Nothing give a 10/10"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Pros: "Even thou flight was delayed we arrive at a decent time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours due mechanical issue Missed connecting flight Waited in line for 2 hours for a hotel comp. had to pay 20$ to get to hotel because there was no shuttle Still stuck in Dallas. Never made it to Sam fran. Extremely disappointed I expect compensation"
Cons: "The drink service came a little late in the flight... but that is a suggestion more than a complaint."
Pros: "Crew on and off plans were helpful and nice."
Cons: "Delayed for hours for a short one hour flight with multiple gate switches."
Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."
Cons: "KTerrible coffee. Tasted stale"
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Pros: "good price and a good route"
Cons: "This turned out to be a 'code share' flight operated by American Airlines. As such, neither Qantas nor American Airlines would allow me to buy premium seats so we could have extra leg room. They said the 'code share' blocks seat sales! Be ware Also found out that American Airlines does not serve meals on flights from Toronto to LAX. I was told they only serve meals on "international flights" but that I could buy a sandwich or snack. Unfortunately they only had 4 sandwiches on board , which sold within the first 2 rows of the plane!"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"
Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."
Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Pros: "I liked having a window seat."
Cons: "My screen was broken, so for 6 1/2 hours, I was unable to watch any movies and didn't see the safety video either."
Pros: "Crew was apologetic."
Cons: "PHL ground stop no known reason. Good weather. Even pilot was at a loss. 4 hours total delay, 3 of which spent in tarmac."
Cons: "The fact the flight was delayed for 5 hours due to weather."
Cons: "Flight attendants and customer service were horrible"
Pros: "The only thing I liked is the fact that I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I did not like the three house delay in Toronto. And, of course, we were always told, it will be just a few more minutes each time so for three hours we were stuck, milling around @ the gate.....well actually between two gates because they kept changing gates.......waiting for the flight. If I'd know it was going to be 3 hours, I would have maybe gotten some food and wandered away to find a place that had a spot to sit. Instead, standing on one foot and then the other, hungry for three house while Air Canada got their #@%*# together and found a plane that actually functioned appropriately."
Cons: "They could have rushed more to get us off the ground quicker."
Pros: "Arriving early Leaving on time"
Cons: "Again flight delayed 4+ hours yet no email notifications whatsover"
Cons: "Fixed arm rest - could not raise up"
Cons: "First leg cancelled after we sat on plane for two hours. Missed connection, arrived 24 hours late. Air Canada provided excellent hotel and meal vouchers, however"
Pros: "Clean and new airplane"
Cons: "boarding process missing baggages unfriendly crews"
Pros: "The price could not be beat and the leg room was decent."
Cons: "Food was pretty sad and we could not hook up out iPad to the entertainment options because we didn't download an app beforehand."
Cons: "the meal served was overcooked, tasteless. The quality of the cutlery was poor even the wrapping was so poor. I travel internationally twice or three four times a year but this was my worst experience as far as the foood was concerned."
Pros: "Everyone was super polite"
Cons: "gate assignment kept changing so i bounced through the airport more than i would have liked to since i was trying to get some work done between flights. in addition, the final gate assignment was tight to say the least; people were literally sitting on the floor next to the moving walkway. this isn't an Air Canada problem it's a Pearson problem and made the experience less than pleasant."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was terrible. There needs to be a wider selection of movies."
Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
Cons: "As every other international flight I've been on has included a lot of food/wine/beer, this was a big disappointment for two long flights. In addition there were no in flight screens. I had a laptop but it is inconvenient to have that out while trying to do things in a small space. The chairs were also really uncomfortable, more than usual."
Cons: "Confusion at every airline because air canaduh forgot to release funds to other lines."
Pros: "Crew was very kind and courteous."
Cons: "Air Rouge app is awful. I'm fairly certain there are 11 year olds designing better apps on their parents PCs. Very slow, a lot of stopping, poor control over music and movie. Also, a piece of overly sweet banana bread does not a continental breakfast make."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not cater to the passengers. Every international flight I've been on, the crew members always ask if we want more snacks or drinks. I was never approached. Also, I asked for an extra blanket and was told no."
Cons: "Some crew members were not always kind."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the crew was wonderful!"
Cons: "Air Canada changed my seat assignment at the gate. I had chosen a window-seat, but they switched me to a center seat. Also, there is no free in-flight entertainment if you don't have your own tablet/smartphone (neither of which I have). You can rent i-pads. I wish I had known that before flying."
Pros: "Great food and they gave us blankets and even free wine with dinner! I was also able to watch to new movies!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "They've replaced the ridiculous entertainment system with a much better one."
Cons: "Unwise cost-saving efforts in the Vancouver Maple Leaf Lounge - obscure magazines only, croissants/pastries replaced with a loaf of bread, etc."
Pros: "Flight went as scheduled"
Cons: "Boarding pass said no meals so I bought very expensive sandwiches in the airport and then they served meals on the plane"
Pros: "Great crew. Gracious and helpful."
Cons: "Kayak was a nightmare to work with."
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Pros: "The 787 was amazing."
Cons: "I had to take two different flights connecting through London Heathrow to make this leg of the journey."
Pros: "Food tasted good"
Cons: "How close together the seats were."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!!"
Cons: "You need to tell people what to expect on Air Canada Rogue - NEVER AGAIN!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight and competent, friendly crew."
Cons: "No TVs and limited movie selection."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "did not get my choice of meal Crew not accommodating"
Pros: "It was better fright than expected. We didn't enough time to enjoy Canada airport . We made a onetime fright but took long wait at customs."
Cons: "Was a bit of a pain when I wanted to simply get off the plane in Geneva since it would be shorter, but then the plane was late, but that can't be helped"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, friendly crew, pillow and blanket both serviceable. Food was a little better than I expected for economy."
Cons: "Baggage handling ripped handle clean off new suitcase, both ends. Delays in departures from Dublin led to us using stairs off of plane on tarmac. Entertainment mostly dependent on app you can't download on plane if you're using wi-fi."
Pros: "The extremely unempathetic Toronto Air Canada customer service agent was a particularly fond memory from my trip."
Cons: "After weather forced us to miss our flight to Delhi from Toronto (understandable), Air Canada booked us on an AC flight to London and then an Air India flight to Delhi from London. In Toronto they told us that we couldnt get our bags because they were in storage, but that they would be on the plane to London and then to Delhi. Upon arriving in London, Air India told us that Air Canada never booked us on their flight to Delhi - that neither of our names were on their manifest. Air India was helpful in getting Air Canada's mistake fixed. Upon arriving in India, my partners bag was nowhere to be found. It would be logical to assume that his bag was in London and never made the imaginary flight Air Canada booked us on. However, even though our bags sat in Air Canada storage for 24 hours, his bag was never even loaded onto our flight to London. He didn't receive his bag until 6 days into our trip, causing all of us to miss out on multiple experiences, including the ability to leave Delhi because of our need to get his bag and multiple missed and promised deadlines from the airline."
Pros: "Air Canada provided accommodations for me when I was informed about my removal from my connecting flight."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the sassy customer service representative who "assisted" me in redirecting me for the next possible flight to India. She booked me for a flight to London and told me that I was also confirmed for an Air India flight from London to Delhi. This "confirmation" was false after checking in with Air India. There was no entry of me being registered for the flight. Luckily, there were enough seats to make my accommodation. The looming concern that followed was that my bag was clearly not going to be in Delhi once I arrived to my destination. This then became my reality and had to deal with not having my luggage for 6 days in India. There was blatant disregard between both airlines in trying to deliver my bag to me. They both blamed each other and refused to claim responsibility. With both refusing to claim fault, I had to fend for myself and pay for clothes and other necessities. Hands down, the WORST experience I've ever endured while traveling with any airline. I vow to never fly Air Canada and Air India ever again."
Pros: "The flight being only an hour and a half."
Cons: "No entertainment, no coffee, and the flight attendant looked like she was over it."
Pros: "Air staff were somewhat pleasant."
Cons: "Plane (767-300) is so old you have to use their app on your own device to watch movies. Plane is so long it takes forever for even simple beverage service to get to you, blocking aisles for hours while various carts are dragged about. Servings were mean, you could only get the can of soda if you begged, refills were also slim, and ice was a cube, maybe two. At one point I was so dry I had to page air staff to ask for more water (and I Never do that!). Food was mediocre at best. Landing, plane shook so hard I thought it would come apart! Planes like this need to be retired FAST. Last time I will fly this equipment. I'm literally going to pay all those ridiculous fees to change my return flight. Hated this exhausting, inconvenient, unpleasant and entirely too expensive experience. Don't fly Air Canada overseas!!"
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience , the whole travel"
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
Pros: "Leg room was sufficient"
Cons: "Touchscreen monitors were not the best."
Pros: "Toronto->Shanghai Good In general it was a good flight considering how long (14 hours) it was. The new entertainment system has a lot of features and movies. It also has chat to other passengers which is useful when travelling with a group sitting in different areas."
Cons: "Bad Long flight but that is the way it is. The fight map froze on my entertainment system about 1/2 through the flight so the map was useless after that. One side of my earphones also went dead. My wife wanted something better then hot noodles in a cup for the middle meal."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with great entertainment options. The flight attendants were especially wonderful. They were always smiling and good conversationalists."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and there wasn't really any organization. A flight to Beijing was boarding at the same time at the gate right next to ours and passengers were getting mixed up, causing longer boarding. Some better signage or direction from staff would have been appreciated."
Pros: "The entertainment was great though the sound quality was lacking. The movies with subtitles were better."
Cons: "The did was pretty dire. Cup of noodles was not a good lunch at all and they ran out of the breakfast and lunch options."
Pros: "Good fight and crew was very good."
Pros: "Very nice crew - something I have learned to appreciate over the years."
Cons: "Chairs were small and I was uncomfortable. Food wasn't good."
Pros: "The agent was able to seat is together from the pronating point through to our destination."
Cons: "Everything was explained"
Pros: "Nice for a long flight - attendants and entertainment was as nice as possible"
Cons: "What else can be said for airline food that has been left untold"
