Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I loved all the updated COVID protocols and the commitment to a safe comfortable flight. The crew did everything possible to ensure the trace experience was as smooth as it possibly could have been and showed a great deal of patience with my family of five that moves kinda slow sometimes."
Cons: "Biscoff cookies in every snack bag. Those cookies one of the most integral parts of flying delta for me"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, friendly and offered great service."
Cons: "I felt everything was pretty much fine. I thought that some of the Captain's announcements were hard to hear, but it's just a minor issue."
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Messed up my luggage in Atlanta. Gate said baggage was going to domestic. Ended up in international terminal. Added almost an hour of back and forth between terminals."
Pros: "Good experience"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "During this trip all my flights got delayed and I was told that I could not get a hotel room and had to pay for myself."
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being on time. Trapped in plane for 2 hours"
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: "Hour late and no wifi!"

Pros: "We eventually got to Atlanta."

Cons: "Displays for zone boarding status would be helpful"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Delayed departure due to late crew arrival. Not a huge deal."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."

Cons: "Small plan"
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "I used the call button for the attendant and no one came for a long time"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, fine flight, very prompt"
Cons: "Was unable to board an earlier flight without paying $75. If there are seats it shouldn't be so difficult to be moved."
Pros: "On time departure, actually got to Cabo early."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine had a broken reclining lock mechanism and the passenger kept trying to switch from recline to sitting up and it wouldn't latch in the upright position, so he kept jerking the seatback up and down for the entire 4 hour flight. Also the rows were so tight, and seatbacks were so close together, that the reclining seat in front of me was 6 inches from my face."
Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"

Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 2+ hours, Delta (running the flight for westjet) sent 1 email about the flight being delayed to 4:45 which was inconsistent with the gate signage and agent who said 3:45, flight ended up leaving at 5:45PM. No reasons were provided beyond the incoming flight from LGA hadn't come in. Why hadn't it come in? When could we expect to leave YUL? No answers."

Pros: "Good selection of free, in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed on the runway, but that wasn't the airlines fault."

Pros: "I had a connection flight which would not be for another 11 hours so I left the airport to get some sleep coming back the same carry-on I have with me now cannot come with me they want me to pay 40euro. In the meantime the flight is 40% empty and plenty of over head and yes is the same size of plane I came in the first place. However the agent was nice after I explain my situation she not charges me."
Cons: "Same airline coming from one place have different methods it’s a bit confusing."

Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because my flight was late. I had to get to my destination for a wedding."
Pros: "This was my first time flying and I have to honestly say I enjoyed this airline. The staff is very attentive to your needs. I felt comfortable the whole flight. The pilot and flight attendants are very informative."
Cons: "I didn’t like the passenger sitting in front of me on my return flight from Frankfurt to JFK. She had her seat reclined the whole time even during meal service. I asked the stewardess to kindly ask the lady to move her seat up so I can remove my meal tray and she said to communicate with the passenger it would make things more easier. I thought that is what the stewardess is supposed to assist me with but hat is my only complaint"
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."

Pros: "Good. Thanks."
Cons: "I had ordered pre flight online duty free shopping. Got a confirmation e-mail telling me that articles were reserved for me and I should approach crew members on board for the articles I had reserved. Reality however was that my pre ordered articles were not registered in their system :-("

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: "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: "Entertainment options were good"
Cons: "Being in last row they ran out of food options for us and attendants were not very polite. Seat was less comfortable due to the tight spacing of the last row and having passengers "hangout" directly behind you throughout the flight."
Cons: "they called for boarding and all the signs said the flight was boarding and yet we stood there for a good 20 minutes before they actually started boarding the flight, but other than that, flight and crew were great!"
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."
Pros: "The crew was nice."

Cons: "It was nice I cannot complain"
Pros: "I liked how smoothly the boarding process was at O'Hare."

Only thing to watch in English were highlights. I had to turn to Children's entertainment. Plus, my screen froze at one point after being hard to function. The flight overall was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew did really well in serving everyone. They were polite, helpful and on the go from the time we boarded until the time we landed."
Cons: "The greatest issue I have has to do with the state of Gatwick which is now under construction. Air conditioning was not available at our gate nor the seating area. We stood at our gate for a long time before being processed so that we could enter the seating area for the flight. We went from hot to hotter prior to boarding."

Pros: "I love the service they provide. .the air hostels were great"

Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, I missed my connection flight and now they lost my luggage. Staff are very friendly, but they can't do much to help me. Icelandair is doing OK in handling the situation, but let's see...I am still in an uncertain situation"
Cons: "In general, not good enough for an overnight flight. Our flight was late, we missed our connections which is the primary reason I am complaining"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was required to gate check a bag, previously okay to bring on board, and it was lost upon arrival."
Pros: "Free kids meal was nice. Good selection of kids shows."
Cons: "Seating was not as expected due to plane change. Screens did not work on first leg, and screen controlled seat recline & lights."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The price was good, the crew was friendly, and the on-line check in process was smooth."
Cons: "Non-functional entertainment consoles..so we could not watch anything, use our reading lights, adjust the temp, or summon staff if we needed to. With a bar in the middle of my foot space, there was no space under my seat for my personal item; No food on an international flight also disappointing."
Cons: "We had a different plane with narrow seats - ok for me but not the person beside me. Nothing but tea or coffee - all food and beverage had to be purchased. My experience. Uncomfortable and hungry."
Pros: "Fly Saga business.... exceptional food and service."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"

Pros: "I like that the flight was very comfortable & there was lots of options for entertainment!"
Cons: "Honestly it was probably the best flight I have ever taken!"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly, we had the seats behind first class so we had a ton of legroom. I would definitely fly Iceland air."

Pros: "Everything Nothing"
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
Pros: "Treated well, staff were kind, met some great people going to Iceland as well"
Cons: "Of course everyone would always love a bit more space - but we understand why we can’t :)"
Cons: "When I booked this flight last March the booking info said 1 free bag. When we got to the airport we were told that we had to pay $94 Can per bag because we had Economy Light class. We had the same issue returning but the cost was $55 US. On top of that Iceland Air changed planes and bumped us from row 10 to 41 - the last row. Bizarrely there is no customer service desk at the Reykjavik Airport - they just give you a little card with the website for customer service. I don't understand how any airline does this! BTW, they blame the third party for the issues! That is you!!!"
Cons: "No food goingacross"
Pros: "The USB plug and screen"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Iceland Air personnel were super accommodating, in Seattle on the ground and in he air."
Cons: "Swissport personnel in Europe were awful. Bags were delayed in Amsterdam for over an hour after landing. Check in at Brussels was also an hour long queue. Boarding in the terminal in Iceland was very disorganized."
Cons: "Mediocre at best Business Class"
Cons: "I didn't like being charged 95 dollars for my checked luggage with no prior knowledge that that was going to be the case. The website said one free checked piece, but apparently that didn't apply."
Pros: "We didn't crash so that's a bonus."
Cons: "Well first off it was a connector flight from Toronto to Reykjavik to Oslo to Tromso, Norway. The first leg was delayed and then they lost my baggage, which happens, I get it. But then due to the delayed flight and lost baggage I missed my connection to Tromso. Then apparently neither airline can do anything to help me so I lose my entire flight cost because I booked through a third party. So I had to rebook a new flight at a premium cost just to get where I needed to go or risk losing my whole vacation. On top of that the baggage they lost is my backpack...hard to go backpacking across Norway with no backpack. Then they ship the backpack to the wrong airport, incorrectly wrote down my wrong cell number so they couldn't even call me...one cluster f*ck after another."
Cons: "That it said on my itinerary that I had economy class but then they still charged me $90 to check a bag. It didn’t say anywhere that my ticket was economy light. I would have bought my bag beforehand to save money but it was not clear at all."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Pros: "Efficient short connection in Reykjavik. Also the luggage made it to the next flight."
Pros: "Blanket and pillow already on chair. Pilots did an awesome job landing in a blizzard."
Cons: "No offer for headphones"
Cons: "Didnt even offer coffee or juice in the morning"
Cons: "The bag check in process was unorganized. The bag belt was not working and out bags were left outside of the counter. They were not scanned in and did not make the flight even though we arrived at the airport 3 hours before boarding. It is very disappointing to get to Iceland and not have clothing to go explore. We are hopeful the bags will arrive before we leave."
Pros: "Still a cattle car in coach"
Cons: "Way too cramped for seating, but the are all the same."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "Having more leg room. Smaller plane. Short transit time."
Cons: "Being charged for a $10 meal after paying $100s for a ticket"
Pros: "Boarding was good and crew were pleasant"
Cons: "All bathrooms were out on the plane for the final 2 hours. You have to pay for any food you would like."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment was excellent. We are both tall and we offered longer legroom seats at checking! Only good for purchase on board so we are before boarding. We purchased a light snack on the second leg of the trip. It hit the spot. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "It was all good!"
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
Pros: "This airline has so much going for it!... Pleasant staff, nice touches for overnight flight (bottled water as we entered the plane, pillow, blanket), plenty of legroom, TVs in the seat backs that work perfectly! What a treat!"

Cons: "Plane cleaning and confort, old plane and somewhat mean crew director."

Cons: "30 minutes of delay at least."
Pros: "Nice seats fast boarding"
Cons: "Snack can be more richer"
Cons: "My SAS flight (which was operated by Air Canada) was delayed by more than 2 hours. A friend who was a fellow passenger was charged for 1 piece of baggage. She should have gotten a break from the baggage fee because of the delayed departure. That's another thing. Why is it that some passengers (like my friends and I) didn't have to pay for our checked baggage, but some passengers (like my other friend) had to fork out a fee for her checked baggage? While we were waiting for our trash (after our meals) to be picked up by a lady crew member, she took so long chatting with a couple of passengers that we had to wait a few minutes before she can get our trash. By then I was dying to get to the bathroom and nearly had an accident as a result. In the future, I'll try to avoid flying with any SAS flight (operated by Air Canada) if I can help it."
Cons: "Arriving 20 min late and not making connection."
Pros: "Everything is excellent!"
Cons: "The boarding procedure."
Pros: "Crew was great! Seats small and terrible !"
Pros: "We arrived alive."
Cons: "The water lines on the plane froze. The flights were delayed, but the staff still made us que up and stand in line for two hours."
Pros: "Once on plane all OK"
Cons: "Check in unhelpful to being rude by ignoring people and avoiding getting advice from higher ups. Worst service I Have experienced in 60 years of air flight three times a year ,at least"
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Pros: "Cheap tickets at short notice."
Cons: "Inability to check in online and via machine in transit. Cheap flight gets you cheap service. My entertainment console did not work and had to ask crew to reboot it. Many others had same problem. Food is below meh. My travel was Air Canada all the way but portions provided/partnered with Alaska Air. I was not able to check in for both portions of my travel from HKG to YVR to SEA."
Pros: "Quick services"
Cons: "Entertainer system overload twice - without move the key"
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Cons: "1, no food 2, pay for the luggage 3, very small leg room 4, too low temperature in the cabin and no blanket"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."
Pros: "I hated both my trips with Air Canada. I payed extra for a better seat and the one I got was dirty. The tv was NOT working. On top of the 5 hours delay, I hated all the experience. The attendants messages is never clear and focus. It's like Air Canada is employing teenagers with NO work etics or professionalism. I am a frequent flyer and will NEVER flew with Air Canada again. The cheap ticket is not worth the cheap aircraft and cheap service I received."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "No flight attendant came during the entire course of the flight, even after I had pressed the button for one. One flight attendant was extremely hostile. Horrible experiencing flying to Vancouver from Vegas."

Pros: "No problems."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable seats with enough leg room."
Cons: "Cold air blowing on our seats that apparently could not be turned off - we asked twice. Very crowded in terminal with several flights boarding at same time, didnt know when we were being called up and didnt know which line to be in- very confusing"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
Cons: "There was a long wait at bag check with a handful of people checking in and handling complaints and seating change requests. This could have been more streamlined-- maybe a separate line for people just dropping off their bags and customer service. Otherwise, once it was or turn, everything went smoothly until the end of the flight"
Pros: "Straightforward flight."
Cons: "Two guys behind us talked the ENTIRE flight. This was an overnight flight when most people wanted to sleep. Quite rude for Canadians."
Cons: "Customer service was horrible"
Pros: "The landing of the aircraft was second to none when we landed in Calgary."
Cons: "The seats we were sitting in were uncomfortable. There seemed to be a ridge near the back of the seat cushion and it was very uncomfortable for the entire trip."
Pros: "No delay. The plane came half an hour early which is ok. There was no complimentary food but drinks were offered. It would have been nice if peanuts/cookies/chips were offered. There was no entertainment so the rating was 1star. Emails were sent to inform us of changes in schedule and also to check in on line. Leg room is good as we can stretch our legs (I guess you can say that we are not that tall) we wish to travel again with Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "Guy at the gate in Toronto"
Pros: "Nothing was done badly, but my flight out was with a different airline and I suppose that spoiled me."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "9 hours + flight with no entertainment and HORRIBLE food (it didn't even bit hunger). Not that it would make a difference, but the people on the back of the plane only had one choice of food instead of the usual chicken or pasta, for example."
Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"
Pros: "Movies ok"
Cons: "Very very very cold and no blanket !!!!! Was a struggle"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The flight was changed too often."
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me; the flight wasn't full, so I was able to stretch out more comfortably. The crew was very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize I needed the app to access entertainment, and I had no way to download it when I got to the plane. I saw that a leg of my journey was on Rouge, and assumed it would be a shorter leg, not the longest. It was disappointing."
Pros: "It was a quiet flight."
Cons: "It's always cold and a shame you have to pay for everything now, even a blanket."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful I was very glad that the Toronto boarding person recommended that i get on the flight as there were still empty seats -- there were no seats on the next flight that i had been switched to because my bag was on that one (supposedly)..."
Cons: "My bag was not on the next flight, so i had to get a hotel room for the nite, It was not on the 8/14/16 Sunday morning flight as stated their system; although the Dulles manager was very helpful, my bag was nowhere to be found. Someone drove to Dulles from Va Beach with my car keys -- i was called sunday nite that bag arrived.and would be fedex'd 2-day which put arrival at Wed 8/17/16. Still not here on 8/20/16. Sad and disappointed at how botched the return trip was."
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Pros: "Fast onboarding and the tinted windows for sleeping"
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't as friendly or willing to accomodate"
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Pros: "We arrived in Istanbul the day of the attack. Air Canada let us change our flights, no charge, no questions asked. We were able to fly through Venice and avoided the Coup attempt. Thank you Air Canada so much!"
Cons: "The hold times were long for customer service but that may have just been the times we happened to be calling and due to the attack."
Pros: "On time and staff was friendly."
Cons: "It bothers me a little we have to pay for snacks on the plane. Meals and alcohol I understand. I also miss TVs. I had one flight on my way to Florida where I could watch movies. Need more of that."
Pros: "Roomy seating CE"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "The system at the Toronto Pearson airport is loco--crazy design, have to move from one line to the other, no idea where to go. The system is so disorganized that you have to keep asking employees what to do and it seems to change as you go from one line to the other. It's not hard to design good lineups. Have good sineage in many places and have one line for one purpose, not many lines in different places for the same purpose that change with the whims of the staff. I'll be attempting to fly with other airlines next time as this airport system is just too much."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "Seats seem slighly bigger and it had a good configuratiom with only 2 seats on the outside rows."
Cons: "Older aircraft with poor air circulation, i couldnt feel the air con. I dont like the idea of an 8hour flight where you need to bring yoir own entertainment device or rent of theirs but having only limited outlets to charge devices."
Pros: "I got a larger than normal seat,"
Cons: "The idiots lost my luggage, and it took two full days and about 20 phone calls to get it back."
Pros: "Crew in flight was nice and professional Sit in 1st class was comfortable"
Cons: "For this flight everything was good"
Cons: "Late crew caused delays"
Pros: "Timeliness, professional staff and crew"
Cons: "Less cramped airplane: there is nothing wrong with the plane itself but every time I have travelled this route the plane has been completely full (this time it was even oversold) so a bigger plane would help"
Pros: "The flight was easy and quick. These small planes are actually pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Waiting for a gate in Chicago is never fun. Most people on the plane seemed to have tight connections, and I'm guessing most of us missed them. I only made mine because the next flight was delayed."
Cons: "Delay. I lost my first flight and almost the second as well"
Pros: "Easy boarding . Flight was very quick and comfortable and the crew were professional and attentive . Despite flight delay the pilot made up the time and we arrived on time. Border and passport control was quick and very efficient on arrival at Glasgow."
Cons: "Baggage collection at Glasgow took too long."
Pros: "Crew was superior. Helped switch seats and get to my transfer on time"
Cons: "Not have a two hour delay because a passenger had a nose bleed!!"
Cons: "Give snacks"
Cons: "Rough landing in Washington, smell of kerosene in Sao Paulo flight, otherwise good."
Cons: "Delta Global Services is the contract company for UA and Delta in MISSOULA. After a great flight to MSO from Denver, we have been sitting in the plane while DGS tried to figure out how to get us off the plane. No management is here to make decisions. Horrible company that is managing United’s flight"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Legroom was minimal."
Pros: "The connection time Mach very well。"
Cons: "I learned that 3 flight together long hours have no food been sever and we have time to get food from airport. Next time I will do better☺。"
Cons: "All of my fligts has been delayed and resceduled, so instead of 18 hours to go to hawaii, it took me 36h"
Pros: "Good communication from crew concerning updates and ETAs."
Cons: "Service was a bit brusque at times, but never unkind."
Cons: "I made a reservation for my whole family and selected seats four month ahead (we reserved 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D). One day before the departure, United informed me that one of my kid had to be moved to 11B a part from the rest of family due to a flight swap. When we started boarding, I noted someone else was sitting on my seat (1D) with his own boarding pass with 1D written. United crew politely asked if the gentlemen was willing to move to 6B, which his original seating in the system but he refused to do so. We' also personally explained to him that if he can yield the seat so that our family could sit together due to my wife's medical condition but he would not cooperate. I noted Those gentlemen on 1D and 1C are either buddies or coworkers. The crews were looking at each other without offering a solution. I ended up telling the crew that I could sit on 6B so that the plane can leave. The departure time was 20 min late u related my seating issue and de-icing took another 40 min. I am a Global Service member and I am very unhappy about the way the whole situation was created and handled by United."
Cons: "Flight arrived early but we had to wait over an hour to disembark and bathrooms were locked down."
Cons: "Far away Gate"
Pros: "It was incredible to get my flight moved up so my layover was much shorter."
Pros: "The flight crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "The boarding time lasted an hour as the front desk staff at the gate insisted that I needed a visa travel document for my connection in China (multiple leg journey). What they failed to realize is that nobody needs a visa for China if they’re connecting in transit. It took a phone call and 3 staff members to sort things out. Not something that I want to deal with at 5:00 am. Moreover, due to the de icing, the flight was late and i just made it to my connecting flight in Newark. It was quite a hair-raising experience overall."
Cons: "Smoke on the plane crazy delay"
Cons: "the wait time. Sitting on the tarmac for 20-25 minutes in PSP waiting for LAX reaffix to clear. The worst is arriving at LAX at 8;39AM which is earlier than anticipated and not getting a gate opened until 9:25AM (approx) sitting on the runway not being told what is going on and when the captain does make an announcement it is to tell us he apologizes for the delay but then proceeds to announce that he and the crew have to go back and to PSP and LAX four more times. I found that inappropriate to tell us about his work schedule when Im trying to get to the gate for my connecting flight"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "A list we were given a nother. Day to travel"
Pros: "Seats were very roomy and pilot did a great job!. Boarding went great!"

Cons: "My seat was the last line and it was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I was put on an Air Canada flight and sat on the tarmac for almost THREE hours in MTL. Finally took off and am stuck in Toronto overnight. Air Canada was very unhelpful. I have to sleep in the airport. No food vouchers. Sucks."
Pros: "I like the fact that the pilot was being safe because of weather!"
Cons: "Waiting and figuring out what are plans with United to get us to Dulles Airport!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, staff was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Nothing to suggest"
Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "- entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried.. United booked a hotel room for the night."
Cons: "Poor communication on gate change. Delay on flight boarding, and there were issues with engine. Stuck on the tarmac with no AC, they had us off-boarded since everyone was sweating. Reboarded after, no AC still until takeoff. Delayed more than two hours- this was last flight, and caused me to miss connection flight. Was supposed to arrive in final destination at 11pm that night- ended up getting there at 9:40AM next day."
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"

Cons: "Delay caused us to miss last flight of day. We have been sleeping on floor of airport for 9 hours. Same thing happened in the beginning of the trip from dallas to chicago. Oh, it was our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Never on Air Canada again. Food was miserable. They literally told me that they ran out of food (on the flight from Montreal to Casablanca). No kidding. They told us that the flight was full and no more food was available! When we asked for water, they did not bring water. I am not sure if they were out of water because the flight was full! That would be something! Bathrooms were not usable. Utterly dirty. My six-year old daughter refused to use the bathrooms. Water was flowing and the smell was horrible. They should clean that. I can go on but what is the point???"
Cons: "The list would be too long. So, what did I like is a better question in this case. Honestly, I am not even sure if I liked anything. I mean some people were nice, but why? Do I expect people to be rude? I mean, I need to like something extraordinary, something that others don't do. I can't remember anything remarkable. Just nothing."
Pros: "We finally got to Chicago.... In one piece!"
Cons: "The delay, the plane changed so the seat assignments changed but we were not given new boarding passes, A MESS!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Very complicated boarding. Unpleasant and arrogant gate attendand, she did not show too much of interest in helping us. My husband and I traveled together, but we were seated separately. She changed our seats, but the seats were still not together just in the same row."
Pros: "On time, gates were close together"
