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."

Pros: "Clean Washroom"
Cons: "N A"
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: "good flight, inflight menu and movie library"
Cons: "rude bag drop off kiosk"
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: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"
Cons: "Bordung process runs smoother now that the order is made clear ahead of time. In jfk they did not have the columns marked “comfort” “priority? “Main 3”, etc, like they had at Reagan arpoirt in DC"
Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "We had mechanical problems and had to come back to Atlanta, get off our plane and get on another one"
Cons: "Crew could have proactively provided more water. I was really thirsty mid-flight and had to stand up and ask for water myself."
Pros: "The crew and comfort was ok"
Cons: "The snack options coming from us to aus were only packets of crisps/chips and apples and cranberry juice."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Comfortable and food was good and drinks and water was plentiful. I would highly recommend Delta for transatlantic flights,compared to so called 4* airline Aer Lingus, then Delta are a 6* in comparison"
Cons: "4 hour delay on take-off and despite that my luggage didn't make it onto the flight."
Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Pros: "Crew were nice. Flight itself was short. Was quick boarding considering how busy the flight was"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seats were rigid and not very comfortable. No entertainment. Just basic really."
Pros: "Boarding was super quick, as crew wanted to leave before the strong rains and winds came through, so we left early! Plane itself was very modern and surprisingly comfortable, as much as a small space can be. Good amount of entertainment, and the crew were pleasant. And flight itself was smooth with very little turbulence which helps!"
Cons: "Had to pay for food, which was a little annoying considering the cost of the flight. Entertainment was very American led... but I guess not surprising considering it’s delta."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."
Cons: "Ran out of snacks by the time they got to my row"
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Waiting in the departure lounce was ok"
Cons: "Boarding was kind of stupid Delta is boarding in Zones and starts at the front instead of starting boarding passangers sitting at the back of the plane and moving forward NO they do it the wrong way and due to that boarding takes to long and makes you frustrated."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew members were professional."
Cons: "The seats could be better"

Pros: "Very friendly crew. Good seating"
Cons: "V limited complimentary food for long haul flight"
Cons: "Always delays with this airline, hope their service improves now they have been bought out by Air Canada. Staff need training on how to deal with their delays, rather than the "I know as much as you" answer. Their staff have always pleaded blind ignorance when disruptions occur. AVOID."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"
Pros: "Friendly crew, informative captain."

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and were having a good time during the flight, which was nice to see."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets supplied, luckily I had my own otherwise I would have been miserable. Worst surprise was that there was no food provided. On a long haul flight that was surprising, they should clearly say that on booking. There were snacks available for purchase, but not great."

Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."

Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Cons: "A little cold"
Pros: "On time. Efficient. No frills but perfectly fine!"
Pros: "It was clean and on time"
Pros: "Great service when checking in. Flight on time and comfortable."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "Yea missed the connection due to taking an obviously not sick young woman off flight from Jamaica I am a doctor"
Cons: "snow caused my flight to be cancelled instead of the direct flight to nyc i flew via Atlanta. due to the timings of the flight - landing at 2.30 am, leaving at 7.30 am - i had no option but to sleep on the airport floor i will try to avoid fliying with westjet in future - staying loyal to air canada - to avoid the risk of such a terrible flight diversion"
Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"

Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Cons: "One of the crew members was not careful enough while taking something out of the overhead cabinet and dropped something on my head while I was asleep. The crew apologized but it should not have happened in the first place while the aircraft was flying smoothly and there was no turbulence of any kind at that time."
Pros: "The staff were friendly as they had to deal with many annoyed customers. I thought the staff handled the constant delays and cancellations well."
Cons: "My flight to Calgary never happened. In fact due to weather conditions, many, many flights were delayed, some cancelled. No more flights to Penticton, so I had to take a flight to Kelowna after 6:00pm or fly the next day. I met a couple to share a ride to Penticton once I reached Kelowna. My luggage was lost in Calgary and so I went on to Penticton, to Osoyoos. The next day, West Jet delivered my suitcase to me. I appreciate the voucher I was given to buy a few things and the promptness of my luggage. We live in Canada, the weather in the winter can be quite an annoyance and so it was last week."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Flight delayed for more than an hour after boarding for a very stupid reason that the garbage bags have not been collected by the service guys and captain had no relevant answer to it.whereas the plane was their at airport standing for hours before boarding."
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so as a result my carry-on baggage ended up in the cargo hold. And they treated me like it was my fault. Because of that I had to wait for it at the baggage carousel and I missed my Ferry. Pretty pissed about that."
Pros: "I got off in Edmonton changed gates, and was back on the plane for the last leg of my journey home. Staff again were very helpful! Thanks again WestJet! Christine S North Vancouver"
Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"

Cons: "I rated food low as there wasn't any nor did I expect it. No problem."
Cons: "The flight crew did little to enforce biosecurity measures among passengers who were not wearing their masks properly"
Cons: "Check in. A nightmare Boarding. A nightmare Waiting 1 hour for the bags to arrive. A nightmare"

Pros: "Todos muy amables. Los asientos estaban cómodos."
Cons: "Be on time with the flights."
Pros: "Connection very easy and flights on time."
Cons: "You guys should be looking into the agencies that book tickets for people. They have a horrible policy in that a mistake can’t be fixed. In today world of customer service this was by far the worst experience I’ve had. I’ll never be booking through kayak again"
Pros: "Speed of boarding"
Cons: "No TVs on back of chairs, small seats. Gate agent asked everyone with a US passport leave their bags at the gate because the "overhead bins were smaller than normal and there was no room" - this was not true, the bins were regular sized and half empty."
Pros: "Great plane with great service!"
Pros: "Entertainment on the long haul was good, no entertainment on the fight from Mexico City to La Paz"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Personnel at counter could have been more effective and friendlier and accommodating but some how it seems customers friendlier services never been or will be a priority."

Pros: "i coul not take the flight becuase this agency changed all my itinerary"
Pros: "the crew was very gentle."

Pros: "Customer service was excellent both at the airport and the fight crew. Everybody was really kind and helpful. I would the seats comfortable. I will certainly use Aeromexico again."
Cons: "The plane had a technical problem with the entertainment system. We were told they would reset and restore in 25 min. The system was never restored but we were not informed until we arrived in London. Technical problems are understandable but better communication with passengers should be a priority."
Pros: "On time and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed a bit more than one hour, we never got notified there was a delay, the in-flight service was less than mediocre, and the overall experience was not good. I'm glad it's over."
Pros: "Was good atention, and the personal was nice"
Cons: "I spected something more that a Cookie and juice for meal."
Pros: "I had not used Aeromexico before and what a great experience it was! All the staff and crew were very helpful and courteous. The seats were comfortable with more leg room than other airlines in economy class. I will certainly use again and tell my friends about it."

Pros: "In time"
Cons: "Seats are horrible, not ergonomic at all"
Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "Perfect timing, pilots throttled up to catch up on a delayed departure, absolutely bang on. Cabin crew were great. Comfortable seats with recline."
Cons: "Inside could do with a clean, but it was an older 737 workhorse, typical wear & tear. I paid more than expected but I did get a good reliable service."
Pros: "The service was basically nonexistent to help fix. Sitting in tarmac at another unplanned airport - w no announcement from the calf! - I thought to call Aeromexico to have them help me reschedule. the agent didn’t understand the issue and couldn’t figure out why I was at an unplanned airport though I shared this w them multiple time. Amazing the flight system was not updated. Finally reaching my connection airport the counter help was terrible and in spite made me go through some special security to get my bag. I was treated like a criminal ... after arriving at the desk the new agent said it was no problem that my bag was checked thru. Exiting I was again given the once over... plenty more but Aeromexico, nah."

Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy and the extra legroom was great Very clean and comfortable plane and great entertainment selection"
Cons: "The breakfast was truly awful. Scrambled eggs with bits of string bean and a portion of black beans all sat in a puddle of hot melted butter. It was so sad and tasted worse"
Pros: "Our ~5 hour lay over in Benito Juarez airport was not good."
Cons: "Airport was very warm no AC. Crowded. Poor variety for sit down restaurants. They too were crowded and poor service and expensive."

Pros: "Mileage was credited to my account of SKY TEAM immediately. Many movies are available."
Cons: "A staff on the check-in counter requested me to show eTA of Canada. I tried to log in my e-mail account that received the eTA before. But IP address was Peru. So the e-mail service provider didn't allow me to log in. I suffered from proving that I received eTA. I had to spend much time on collecting and showing all the itineraries related to Vancouver. So I could never visit the VIP Lounge for Business Class passengers because of insufficient time.I had to go to the gate directly to avoid my flight. It was very hard time."
Pros: "boarding, service, entertainment"
Cons: "some music while boarding not of my choosing interfered with my music and seemed unnecessary"
Pros: "The flight loaded, departed and arriverd within minutes of the scheduled times. The departure and arrival times are convenient, but could perhaps be one hour earlier., The entertainment choice was large and seemed to work without a hitch."
Cons: "Some indifferent music over the loudspeakers interferred with my choice of misic and seemed unnecessary."
Pros: "First class was nice onboard the plane, but too tired to enjoy it since it was a 1am flight."
Cons: "The counters did not open until 10pm, only 2hrs B4 "the flight closed at 12 midnight), even though they say arrive 180 minutes early. The "SkyPriority" line was the slowest line. At the outset two agents weren't even helping guests. This was a very frustrating experience. Unfortunately, I had to pickup and recheck my bag and ended up waiting outside security for several hours because there was no where to drop the bag after passing immigration from my connecting flight. I suggest AM get another airline's baggage handler to recheck bags for early arriving customers so at least they can wait inside security where amenities abound."
Pros: "Free food and drinks. A lot of movies to choose from"
Cons: "My golf bag for then doesn’t count as a normal bag, so they charge $150 per trip. Absolutely robbery. As well, internet on the plane is well over $100. Again, robbery."
Pros: "Seat was good. Crew was good. A meal and beverages offered properly."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."
Cons: "The behavior of the front desk employee who provided us the ticket."
Cons: "The setas space is too short"
Pros: "They charge for the baggage, before they didn't. But at least the crew and travel was great. There was an hr delay because the plane had to stay in another state according to the pilot, something bout a snowy weather. No biggie. And the airline still offers complementary food and drinks. At no charge. Loved it."
Cons: "The delay. But that's weather for you. Glad they replaced the delay with food."
Cons: "Too many gate changes. They changes gates atleast four times for each flight. And long wait(more than an hour for each flight) at the boarding queue.Even the business class seats were very dirty. No vegetarian food. The TV remote did not work. And there were only 4 movies in the entertainment section and nothing else. No TV series or any other videos. The crew was courteous. That was the only good thing about the flight. Highly disappointed."
Pros: "Price, timing, efficiency"
Pros: "In general was a good flight that departed on time and arrive ahead of time"
Cons: "Se reserved and paid the flight months ago and reserved our seats . The issue was that no seats were really reserved and we had to get seats are the end of the plain"

Cons: "The worst airline now a days"
Pros: "Smooth flight"

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: "The crew was great and I really appreciate how they accommodated a family with 4 young children"
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."
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"

Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."

Cons: "The food. Working toilets. 10 abreast seating is too tight on 777. Avoid."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to poor staff and a delayed landing from my crossover. Given how childish the ground staff were being, I can only assume the flight staff wouldn't be much better."
Pros: "Pilot was very careful went around the storm that we could see from out flight nicely got us home safely. Great job."
Cons: "Even though I had a priority boarding I was told that I was suppose to stay with group 5. As a BA silver traveller I didn’t get the boarding priority."
Pros: "Considering it was only a 2.5 hour flight, the snack was fairly good."
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
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."

Pros: "Desk attendant was very kind, but clearly had no idea what to tell us."
Cons: "See previous flight post, another delay for mechanical issues, another round of poor communication."
Cons: "Short flight there was no entertainment but that’s ok"
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."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"

Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. Seats were ultimately uncomfortable. Not helped by the backs being loose."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
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."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "Legroom was great!"
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in counter made fun of my surname. Bad start but not noteworthy unless combined with the rest of the experience. The flight was delayed causing me to miss another AA connection by minutes. Waited in line to be told I wouldn't get on a flight til the following day, they couldn't help with accommodation and I wouldn't receive my luggage until the following day. In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."
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: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
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: "Nice flight, great leg room, staff was friendly and flight was on time."
Pros: "Only check in and boarding was smooth."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was on time. This was a newer plane"
Cons: "it was great"
Cons: "The crew should be trained more on customer service"
Cons: "Notification from the Travel agency that I needed to get a Yellow Fever immunization."
Pros: "Polite, helpful crew"
Cons: "Nothing, would recommend"
Pros: "Customer service from SFO to YVR. The BNE to YVR customer service wasn’t good when I came, particularly from the Brisbane airport staff, but going back, it was great."
Cons: "Better food, otherwise good"
Cons: "Toilets were dirty and not enough toilet papers"
Pros: "It arrived on time."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold. People we wearing their jackets and when I mentioned it to the cabin crew member she said a few other people would have to make a similar comment before she could request turning the temperature up. There was also a glitch in the system so that the reading lights for each seat could only be operated by the seat directly in front. The food was very uninspiring and poorly presented. The tea and coffee were awful!!!!!! The choice of movies,etc was very limited. Thank goodness it was a night flight and not too long!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to mechanical issue sitting on the tarmac."
Pros: "Crew were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. Great entertainment system."
Cons: "The food is terrible, overcooked watery beefless beef dishes. Better ti brng your own food."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals, they were not enjoyable, we actually couldn’t eat them. I wish we had not gotten vegetarian meals as the regular breakfast was a choice between pancakes or omelet with fresh fruit, which where both vegetarian. They need to make a difference between vegetarian and vegan."
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "Only thing good was the brevity of the flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty and ridiculously cramped. Air Canada undermines its brand by flying planes like these."
Cons: "Put on Turkish air landed 12 hrs late lggage still missing"
Pros: "Vegetarian food needs lots of improvement"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Cons: "The airline crew keep on pushing back the departure due to bad weather. No discipline while boarding passengers. Delay after landing to open the door. No clear instructions about the delays"
Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."
Cons: "Late flight the crew did.t care and many people missed connections. The customer service at the airport desk was understaffed slow and rude. They we're not helpful in trying to get new flights booked and I felt like it was asking a huge favor even though it was Thier delayed flight that made me miss my connection."
Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"
Cons: "Lost luggage!"
Pros: "Ease of service and efficiency."
Cons: "few movies"
Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"
Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"
Pros: "Ease of boarding - no long queues. Offer to put hand luggage in the hold with no charge."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, very pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "No flight entertainment at all."
Pros: "It was OK but it had to be better than the flight to Canada which was delayed 24 hours (just for bad measure). It's a cheap flight and AC warn that the "in seat" screen is no longer provided so criticism on this basis is a bit silly. I noted that the free iPads in Premium Economy provided more films but they were so dated!!! Food in PE was much better as was the general service. It cost quite a bit in the "Auction" but it was worth it I think."
Cons: "This relates to the outward trip when we only found out at the check-in that the plane was postponed to the following day. OK, we were put up in a hotel for the night but 24 hours there was not the best day of my life. I wasn't too impressed with the hotel."
Pros: "Staff all friendly and helpful, both at desk and in plane. Seats were pretty comfortable with sufficient leg room (I am tall), but if you are a wide person (or next to one) it would have been pretty cramped. Neither of my flights (to Newfoundland) were full so we all had a bit of extra space. Food was adequate but could be improved with fruit instead of dessert."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."
Cons: "Air Canada offers this flight DAILY. Yet somehow the boarding was the most excruciating tedious I’ve had to endure. Passengers who needed assistance boarding seemed to have to deal with haphazard organisation, and the fact that they seemed surprised so many people brought carry-on luggage that the bins filled up is laughable. Changed my return flight to Alaska Air."
Pros: "Everything. The plane was immaculate, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, the flight crew was friendly and professional. Air Canada's abillity to transit passengers from the US to international destinations is truly remarkable and must be best in class. I went from an inbound flight from Houston, through Immigration and to the gate for my flight to London in under 15 minutes!"
Pros: "I like the seats which were only 2 instead of 3 seats."
Cons: "- Felt like I was bothering the air stewardess when I asked for anything - Flight was delayed by 50 minutes. - Food was extremely bland and below par."
Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."
Pros: "At fisrt the flight was over booked. Once we had boarded their was a technical issues with the aircraft, we had to sit in our aiys with nothing to do for just under 2 hours. With this delay in mind their was no form of a free drink as a mini compensation. They had no choice of food."
Pros: "That even though there is a delay, we still made it around the same time"
Cons: "That there was a delay in the first place"
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Was tracking boarding from the Air Canada app as there was nowhere to sit by the departure gate or screens. The app didn't advise that the flight was boarding (unlike other apps such as BA). I missed my flight and they insisted on charging me more than what I paid for the entire ticket just to return home. I got back to London to find that my luggage didn't make the journey. Staff at Air Canada were unfriendly and unprofessional."
Pros: "Flight was good. Left a bit late but made up time"
Cons: "Security took nearly an hour to get through even though it didn't look very busy."
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Pros: "Very helpful crew and staff assisting with golf buggy ride"
Pros: "I thought the overall service was very good. I like how well the crew communicated with the passengers and how smoothly everything went."
Cons: "The food (dinner: chicken with rice, breakfast: eggs) was ok, maybe even a little yummy, but could've been better (eggs where a bit too wet). I also felt like the movie selection was rather disappointing. A lot of not so great hollywood blockbusters."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, crew were attentive, food was excellent, the "pod" was comfortable and I did not use the entertainment"
Cons: "Would have liked more info as to how to work the gizmos - had to ask how to recline my seat and never did get to grips with the entertainment. The Fast Pass specificaly said it was for disembarkation at London and so I did not realise I could have used it to get through security for ongoing flight"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Cons: "Hair in my breakfast and they wouldn't give me another meal also by the time they reached me all the options but the overlooked egg was available they didn't explain just dumped the meal on my tray table and when I asked for the other option was told straight out no... I've flown on many airlines and that was by far the most foul meals I've ever had budget airlines do better won't fly ac anytime again.... My original flight was delayed 5 hours to connect so I was transferred to another flight and my bags didn't make it so I went 4 days without luggage also"
Pros: "Flight was delayed several hours with no compensation given"
Pros: "Entertainment system is good"
Cons: "Crew was an hour late arriving at airport so flight was delayed. No food, not even a snack, on a 5+ hour flight is not acceptable."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable..."
Cons: "Plane windows were really dirt... staff was a bit rude..."
