Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
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: "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"
Cons: "Better flight scheduling."
Pros: "Seat was hard, not much foot space"
Cons: "My wife and Iasked for a snack, it was never delivered"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Coffee or beverage service would have been a nice touch."
Pros: "We eventually got to Atlanta."
Cons: "Delta is flying a lot of commuter planes, which are pretty cramped. We usually fly first class, and the seating is essentially the same as what coach used to be. There's nothing "first class" about it. And of course, the flight was hours late."
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."
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."

They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "The limited space in our seats"
Pros: "Smooth flight; on time; easy check-in"
Cons: "Food was o.k., but not great"
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."
Cons: "The crew was great and the flight came in early. I wish there was a better food selection."
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."

Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "After a massive power outage, the Delta employees were calm, professional, and kept everything moving as well as they could under the circumstances. We boarded the plane, and then had to deplane while we waited for the pilot to arrive. The updates were timely and we were kept well informed by the ground crew. Hats off to them for making the best of a bad situation!"

Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"
Cons: "The special meal I ordered was delivered to someone else. The entertainment system wasn't functioning properly and no English susbtiles we're offered for any of the movies, unlike my previous Delta flights (for some reason there were only Chinese)"
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: "You go up. You go down. It's over before you know it."
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: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"
Cons: "Seats are very small."
Pros: "Exceptional flight staff -"
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Pros: "Great Service and amenities for a great price!"
Pros: "This was a 767 and we flew first class, so we had the more private, reclining seats with the advanced electrical and USB outlets. The flight attendants were excellent and I had a special meal request, which they confirmed and served me well."
Cons: "Nothing. the flight was great!"
Pros: "Plenty of complimentary drinks and snacks. Even complimentary Earbud Style HEAD-SETS !"
Cons: "lack of carry on luggage space. very tight. gate agents did not care about the customers. I had to stick my bag under the seat and only half would fit so my feet did not fit with my bag. it was a back pack. I do not prefer checking luggage since I've had so many bad experiences."
Pros: "Don't know yet. We're still waiting to leave."
Cons: "That you're asking how it was before I left."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "One Cooa employ tried to force me to check my carry on. They did not ask if I wanted to check it. They told me I must. They ridiculously placed the bag on top of the carry-on measuring device and told me it was too big. I had just gotten off another Copa flight from Port of Spain where there was no issue at all."
Cons: "Had an issue with my passport and the manager at the check in counter was rude and not helpful."
Pros: "flight was non stop and arrived more or less on time."
Cons: "boarding in PTY was awful--total chaos. Seat was uncomfortable meal was mediocre"
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "I called in advanced and requested a vegetarian meal. Apparently no one was told l, and they were no vegetarian options available. Also, there was only one movie running in a general tv without any other entertainment options. This should not be allowed on an international flight >5 hours."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options for a long flight were lacking."
Pros: "I liked that everything was smooth and everyone was helpful"
Cons: "The attention of the staff could have been better, never the less, they were an amazing crew."
Pros: "Crew was rude, didn’t give the 12 people in our group any attention. We felt discriminated our group were told that our duty free purchases were considered carry on &we have to check our other carry on while the passenger next to my friend had her carry on plus 4 duty free purchases w/her & was not"
Cons: "I travelled with my husband, 15yr old daughter, 2yr old twin boys and 1yr old baby, tried checking in online the nite before and couldn’t, rep on the phone couldn’t help me, told me we were all assigned seats separately & she couldn’t help fix the situation, checked in at the airport & was told I ha"

Cons: "Pillows and blankets in business class"
Pros: "La puntualidad para abordar y la llegada a mi destino, buen avión."
Cons: "No nos facilitaron audífonos, la comida no fue muy buena y no encontré espacio para mi equipaje de mano, la política de la aerolínea debería ser que el pasajero pueda subir con un equipaje de mano o una mochila, ya que suben con ambas, mas fundas de compras y ocupan todos los espacios para el equipaje de mano."
Pros: "Business Class service in Economy! Free checked luggage. Warm meals for dinner. Sandwiches for Breakfast and Lunch. You can even choose different options: Vegan, Gluten free or Kosher. ALL drink options ...., even ALCOHOL !"

Pros: "Copa is a great airline: always on time and friendly staff from boarding to flying! The stopovers are just enough making their flights the shortest to latinamerica"
Cons: "They have two set of aircrafts one of which is quite modern and the other one which is older. The new one has personal in flight entertainment system which is great! Unfortunately, based on my experience you only get the new planes half of the times. Looking forward to them updating all their planes."
Pros: "Attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Food, movie options were bad"
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Efficient check in and boarding process. Great time for connection."
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Pros: "The flights left on time"
Cons: "The food is really bad"
Pros: "I la la love travelling with Copa! I book with them whenever possible!"
Cons: "Nothing really. My back was tired from sitting 5 hours but I don't put the blame on Copa for that! 5 hours of sitting does that to a person."
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "Maybe more entertainment for a 5 hour flight"
Pros: "Didn’t have to wait much for the connecting flight and Peruvian Crew was way more hospitable than the previous Panamanian Crew. But, still I would encourage you learn some Spanish."
Cons: "Food not quite as I expected and planes were quite small on both flights making the whole trip uncomfortable."
Pros: "Best direst flight to panama from sfo."
Cons: "The aircraft was really old, the space between the seats are so tiny that was impossible do not touch the person on your side, my knees came touching the seat in front of my the wole time, to resume the space, I can say that I never had a seat with so small space like that, even in domestics flights. About the food, they started to giving us a little oreo and just gived us some food again 6 hours later and they dont have nothing to sell, I spent the wole flight with really hungry. To complete, they dont have indivual flat screens, so you have to watch the comum tv, that just showed one movie and nothing more. I thing that its should be not permitted to flight on this aircraft for international flights."
Pros: "All the way it should be!"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Just your regular flight, but all on time, no frills, got me there."
Pros: "I love that food was included in our ticket price!"
Pros: "nice staff."
Cons: "delayed leaving and arriving. no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew were nice and they had good meal servir."
Cons: "We were in the last row which wasn't comfortable. The flight departed late, arrived late, and it took almost an hour for the bags to come out. The entertainment was also very poor."
Pros: "attendants were very friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "Business class seats were really economy seats in a closed section (this is the norm on flights operated by Copa Columbia)."
Cons: "Copa cited some airport restriction on number of people they could accommodate on the plane due to weather and how this was handled and processed by the ground crew was just terrible. This affected a number of passengers -- 30 or more, by my estimates. And it started with the leg from Panama to San Francisco not checked in automatically and getting placed on standby. The call center did not offer a suitable explanation for the airport's weather restriction. As a frequent flier on the Star Alliance, I have not seen a situation handled as poorly as this. The ground staff seem very poorly trained to handle what seems to be a frequent situation. And despite most affected travelers being there early with a layover began to resolve this only 45 min before the flight. My appetite to fly Copa from San Francisco has vastly diminished. And so has the desire to fly through Panama City, if weather is as fickle as they say it is."
Pros: "Copa still serves meals at no extra charge. Good food too. Crew is consistently excellent for all flights."
Cons: "Seats are very small, little leg room, and some of the planes have seat cushions that are too firm."
Pros: "Easy and fast connections. Flight on time.great"
Pros: "Everything moved smoothly"
Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "Must say that customer service on flight superb! Served breakfast and dinner included in our airfare. I remember fondly when other airlines provided this service. Please don't change this service. It is a big deal for passenger attitude and experience! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "The experience at check in at PTY was very challenging...computers were down so we could not pre check from our Hotel earlier. Lines and not enough agents at check in stations....we came so close to not checking our baggage 1 hour ahead of our flight. We arrived at airport 2 hours ahead of flight. Also, departure time when we booked tickets was scheduled at 9:40 am. When I checked the night before it was listed at 9:10 am. We had not received any e-mail update that we know of. Seems there was no one to check with to ask questions as to which line we should be in."
Cons: "It was the most unconfortable fligt I ever had,the seats where to narrow, and I did no have space for my knees or my feet. The almost 15 hours of fly from San Franciso to Panama and from there to Cordoba Argentina where a real torture. Iam 70 years old, iam 6',2' and i think you should look for some alternative for peoople like me, I flight to USA 3 or 4 times in a year, but as a retired peson it is impossible for me to pay for. A first clss ticket.The rest of the flight , the crew and the personel at the airportwhere excellent.I will like to keep flying in Copa but I wll like to know how you can find a solution to my problems. thank you very much for your atention"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Was great"
Pros: "Friendly staff."

Cons: "Better communication in regards with mechanical issues."
Pros: "Everything. Thank you"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thanks."
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."
Cons: "The boarding"
Cons: "My baggage did not arrive in my final destination"
Cons: "Crews were good"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "It was good"

Cons: "Food options not much variety"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Crew was friendly. We got drinks and snacks twice on the 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The cushions are getting thinner with every new plane. That makes for hard surface and an extra rough turbulence experience. Arm rests are almost non existent again very uncomfortable on a long flight. No Monitors in seat so no uou have to 1 have your own device or RENT one from WestJet. No place you put the device, so you must hold it in your hand for hours. VERY uncomfortable."
Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"

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."
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"
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: "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: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
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"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Pros: "Flight attendants were the best ever."
Cons: "Entertainment set up was confusing and slow. Headphones didn’t work. Seat didn’t recline."
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: "Food was dreadful and plane was very cold and that was in first class"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
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: "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: "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: "I managed to get a comfortable seating"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Cons: "Not much keg room for a medium size female."
Cons: "Seats were very tight compared to other airlines"
Pros: "They had a movie screen with movies available. Even though the trip was short, it was nice to have that option."
Cons: "I was made to pay for my carry on because of weight. I didn’t understand that when I booked. I am also certain that many other carry ones were more than 12 kilos."
Pros: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"
Cons: "Lost my baggage even though I actually watched them transport it to the airplane from the airplane window. Brutal."
Cons: "There needed to be vegetarian options."
Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."
Pros: "on time departure, early arrival"
Pros: "The service the upgrade.the fight excellent"
Cons: "Hard to say"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge is a nasty way to travel. In a standard seat, there is enough room for a very small adult/ child. If you are 6ft tall or more, you are going to be in trouble. If Air Canada gave an extra 3 inches of space for your knees between the seat in front of your own seat, everything else would be bearable. Corporate greed drives jamming in as many seats as humanly possible to ensure that you know how a sardine in a can feels. I am not sure why Air Canada feels justified in charging extra money for a bulkhead seat just so a customer can have a "normal" experience travelling. I would recommend every Air Canada exec goes for a ride on a Rouge Cattle Car to see how enjoyable it is."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Aircraft was switched for maintenance. Incredibly late arrival"
Cons: "That there was no meal included. Only ordering extra through the cafe catalog"
Pros: "787-9 Full Flat business class"
Cons: "French annoying"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "seats felt like they were bare to the metal"
Cons: "Pleasant a/c employees"
Pros: "The price :)"
Cons: "Wasn't able to play the videos on my iPhone."
Pros: "North American flights are definitely not as comfortable as in Asian flights"
Pros: "Different announcements for boarding occurred almost simultaneously, making it hard to understand what was being said."
Pros: "Good selection of TV and film's"
Pros: "I liked having the pillow and blanket giving to us. So great!"
Pros: "Early boarding with kids International Toronto terminal very comfortable with plenty of free wifi charging and iPads"
Cons: "No tv did not have app for streaming , did not know when booking that TV only available on your personal device Did not want to pay $10 to rent iPad"
Cons: "My one checked bag did not arrive with me. Not sure where the delay was."
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
Cons: "Too much late. I missed all my itenerary planned by Campus France. I had to pay for a taxi and a new train ticket."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The breakfast served was too little. We only received a drink and a biscuit."
Pros: "Business class compartments. Excellent by all standards"
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: "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"
Cons: "Was upgraded, so higher level of satisfaction"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "My suitcase did not arrive with me."
Pros: ".... the very logical humane boarding, special attention to kids and older citizens."
Cons: ". no vegetarian options.... nothing outstanding or comfort feel... nothing that would make me choose the airline as a preference over others ~ other than the price"
Cons: "Again, my checked in luggage did not arrive with me in RDU!"
Cons: "3 hours of delay because of a technical failure"
Pros: "Flights arrived early Best landing ever"
Cons: "The economy seats on Canada Air are about as small as they can possibly be."
Pros: "If someone is requesting a wheelchair, shouldn't that be the first clue that they need a seat that isn't all the way at the back end of the plane? Try harder to make those accommodations possible!"
Cons: "See notes for suggestions. Besides that, there were far too many empty seats in "first class". What's the matter with you people? You couldn't see that I was struggling to walk and simply given me one of those out of courtesy? Do you think anyone would have known? NO THEY WOULDN'T HAVE! You don't even give a snack of a miniature bag of anything anymore? Again...nickel and dimming the customer and being a lemming! Following all that is greedy and wanting same as any other filthy carrier? Don't worry! I won't forget any of this! I was nice and respectful to everyone of the attendants. Yet limping and having problems breathing, they let me carry my own carry-on suitcase which was clearly too heavy for me! I had a pulmonary embolism and have very bad legs but that apparently didn't show well enough by the pained expression on my face! So thank you for nothing Air Canada. This is strike 2 against your airline. Three strikes and you're out! Because then, I contact the American Civil Disabilities office for their assistance in putting your business practices on television for heightened scrutiny by the FAA. No threat implied. Just statement of fact."
