Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I was not aware that I flew in Narita and flew out of another airport."
Pros: "On time departure and earlier arrival of the airline Thumbs up for the pilot for smooth landing and take off Food is so delicious Stewardess are very respectful Will fly again with ANA"
Cons: "None so far"
Pros: "Friendly staff and decent size."
Cons: "Vancouverites are a bunch of entitled, self-absorbed twats. Not really much ANA can do about that."
Pros: "The crew was great, friendly and helpful. The food was good and the overall service on the plane was great."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Los Angeles and we did not make our connecting flight in Tokyo. The next option they had was a full 24 hours later so we ended up taking the train. I tried to make adjustments to one of my flights for the return home and was told that is not an option."
Pros: "The flight was late checking in. The staff handled the situation well and kept the passengers informed."
Pros: "I was lucky the flight was not full and the seat next to mine was empty allowing me to relax and sleep well."
Pros: "Slept much of the time"
Cons: "My head phone didn't work. Only one ear. Asked for two replacements but neither worked, one broke."
Pros: "Clean plane, comfy seats and great staff"
Cons: "Everything was good didn’t hate anything"
Pros: "Even though the flight was around 45 min, still got a nice cup of consomme soup while I was working on the in-flight WiFi. Overall good for a short flight but basic interior with poor visibility of safety video on 787-9."
Cons: "Boarding is a bit chaotic. Only people at the front of the queue can see the correct places to stand, so many people were trying to push in the front of the queue because the signs weren't visible from some angles or from far away. Basically couldn't see the inflight safety videos from my seat (17K) because of the curvature of the overhead bins and positions of the few screens (no seat-back monitors)."
Cons: "Enjoy the free money, cause I didn't go on my flight. Work had me cancel my vacation a month ago. I tried to cancel, but it wouldn't let me. I tried cancelling through the insurance I purchased on it and they said they couldn't either (even though cancellation was covered in full)."
Pros: "The seat I selected was the first row of regular economy. It had extra legroom and received excellent attention by the staff for drinks. The arline served 3 meals and snacks on the flight. I felt like I was eating the entire trip. :)"
Cons: "The seats were quite narrow. Most of the rows behind had armrests that were able to raise and lower, but due to my seat selection, my row had the stow-away monitors in the armrests. The seats also didn't technically recline. The lower seat cushion merely moved forward, emulating a recline, but the seatback didn't actually move. It was not quite comfortable."
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service !!!!"
Pros: "I liked the way the pilot talked to us and let us know what was going on and still got us there on time even though our departure was slightly delayed."
Cons: "There had to be something better than pretzels."
Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks and refreshments given in meager amounts by stewardess like it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies was poor and narrow"
Pros: "Shortest duration"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable, staff were very attentive and obliging, offered tea, coffee water etc frequently. Blankets were also on offer. No comments to make in food or entertainment as not on offer ( as a domestic flight would not expect them)."
Pros: "Food, comfort, service. Good comfort for an economy ticket. No complaints. Movies worked great, blankets and pillows provided. I thought good leg room, but I am only 5’4”. But I still get crowded on domestic flights—seems the seats get smaller and closer together on short flights every year. ANA was good service to Japan. Business class and first class looked awesome. Maybe someday."
Pros: "Pleasant stewardesses"
Cons: "Expensive lunches, no entertainment unless you pay"
Pros: "Clean, friendly and the 787 Dreamliner was great, be sleep with 2 different families little ones keeping me awake."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crews and the cleanliness of the rest rooms."
Cons: "The delay before taking off."
Cons: "Our seats are much less comfortable with very little leg room. My daughter couldn't recline her seat."
Pros: "Flight spot on time."
Cons: "Can't think of a better thing"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and attentive. The plane was clean and comfortable. Great movie choices."
Cons: "The long security lines in Tokyo for transfer."
Pros: "Best flight ever"
Pros: "Food, staff, and entertainment."
Cons: "Tight space and the tray was on the dirty side."
Pros: "Great service. Crew are kind and friendly!"
Pros: "5 stars around"
Pros: "Great service, excellent and curteous. Clean cabin"
Cons: "Food can be improved, economy seats are tight. Movie selection not as vast as SQ and Cathay"
Pros: "Great service, excellent and curteous. Clean cabin"
Cons: "Food can be improved, economy seats are tight. Movie selection not as vast as SQ and Cathay."
Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"
Cons: "They refused to board because the united dis not allocate the flight date and ANA check in counter did not help to coordinate."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."
Pros: "Good staff, good service, good entertainment"
Cons: "Although my partner and I bought our tickets together and booked them almost 9 months in advance, we were not seated together, which made the flight more difficult and uncomfortable."
Pros: "I could upgrade my seat from a regular economy seat to a premium economy seat about 24 hours in advance. The flight attendants were generally attentive and thanks to the kindness of my ajacent passenger to my left, I could sometimes go to restrooms."
Cons: "I usually take an aisle seat, but it was not available this time. Furthermore, my ajacent passenger to my right hand side had cold and often coughed and I myseld caught cold from him during this flight...."
Pros: "It was clean and nice"
Pros: "My Marine son and I traveled ANA from Okinawa to Hiroshima. We had to be bussed out to our plane but it was so worth it because we were on a Star Wars plane."
Cons: "My son and I had made separate reservations and they lost his. however he was able to get on the flight and they sat us together."
Pros: "As always, the Japanese customer service is wonderful - I have no complaints in that department!"
Cons: "The boarding process is pretty annoying....they do not board until minutes before the flight time and we still had to take a bus to the actual plane. We took off late (which, personally, at this point, I had just been on a 14 hour flight plus the 2 hours layover) - a delay just added to the exhaustion. Also, the plane was very old and very hot...even though it was only a one hour flight, it was very uncomfortable and outdated."
Pros: "Great seats in business class. Lots of privacy. Great service as well."
Cons: "American style Food could have been better. Didn't try the Japanese food."
Pros: "very good service comfortable seat"
Pros: "food , service"
Cons: "The food tasted very much like caned food and the seat had a pouch from wear and tear which wasn't very comfortable at all. Service didn't seem to anticipate service or emphasize needs."
Pros: "Very friendly crew both on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "Entertainment options (movies/TV) are rather limited and mostly not to my taste. Entertainment was also the same on the flights there and back, meaning that on the second flight, there was even less choice."
Pros: "Everyone crew members was very friendly and helpful. I"
Cons: "Food and entertainment options"
Pros: "I liked my seat. It was in the first row behind first class. The ticket lady was very nice and patient"
Cons: "I was very frustrated because I thought I had 90 minutes between flights but by the time I got my luggage it was too late to get my scheduled plane. This forced me to wait two hours for the next plane after I had been on a plane for 13 hours."
Cons: "Headset wasn't working propperly."
Cons: "The six + hour layover in Chicago."
Cons: "There is only a food box which contains a small sandwich, a small cake and a small cup of fruit pieces with a drink of 250ml ice tea for this three hour flight. I would think this kind of catering is not good enough."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food Crew"
Cons: "flight delayed as always"
Pros: "Reverse herringbone seating is always one of my business class seating favorites. The crew was quick and efficient. We arrived on time for both the outgoing and return flights."
Cons: "Food was lacking. Our outgoing flight had much better food than our return. For example, they provided two or three snack options on the outgoing flight. They only had an asian soup for our return. Since we left at 1:00 am, I slept through the dinner and woke up about six hours later quite hungry."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect .the flight was so excellent .no words to say"
Pros: "Cabot crew very nice an professional."
Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat but I got stuck with a middle seat."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "The seats assigned are so at the back at the aircraft. Even both of us are members of the airline we haven’t received any flight notification. That’s really bad"
Pros: "Crew were outstanding and food was awesome"
Pros: "On time. Good service"
Pros: "Too cramped"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Flight is an hour delayed ☹️. I don’t like the fact that u can’t choose ur own seat online"
Pros: "The food are great."
Cons: "Bathrooms are not as clean."
Pros: "Flight attendants really attentive and friendly. Flight arrived right on time and at a close gate. Good food."
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever-"
Pros: "I liked the fact that food was offered rather than the typical NA experience where you provide your own."
Cons: "Staff seems distant and uninterested at times."
Pros: "I enjoyed the good check in service, and the excellent lounges. As always, the overall level of service on Cathay was good."
Cons: "The utterly appalling seats on Cathay's old B777s are unacceptable for a premium airline. Non-reclining economy seats which are desperately uncomfortable for any flight of more than 1 hour, and completely unsuitable for an overnight flight. These planes desperately need a refit. Best avoided until this has been completed. The flight was overbooked, and the cabin crew seemed stressed and very busy. As a long term frequent flyer with CX, this was a very disappointing experience."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices, but the system itself was awkward and slow to respond."
Cons: "The 777 was tired. Tray tables weren’t clean and it was fitted with seats that did not recline. Most uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Short stop over"
Cons: "Flight stewardess keeps saying "we don't have this, we don't have that, we run out of it"."
Pros: "Very good service. Professional and friendly"
Pros: "Schedule of the flight"
Cons: "The food can definitely improve a little more."
Pros: "CX still has good offerings on flights from their home in Hong Kong to other destinations."
Cons: "However, CX for International Regional is, in no way, comparable to their better long-haul routes. That being said, the entire airline has lost its luster like their home country is losing their value with prices going up and value for-the-dollar going down."
Pros: "Smooth flight , crew members were good"
Cons: "Food and chair space The head set was in a sealed bag , when I opened it I found 2 white hair inside !!! The blanket was soiled with chocolate in a sealed bag !! Delayed flight for an hour without timely announcement"
Pros: "Flight from Toronto to Hong Kong was late departing due to a snow storm. Most on the flight missed connections. Cathay staff were waiting on the jetway with plans for everyone that missed their connection to Sydney. Just impeccable organisation and service."
Pros: "Everything thing worked out well except for the food for my wife. Sitting all the way in the back wasn't that bad because no one was behind us and we could fully recline."
Cons: "Kayak or Cathay provided no options to select meal preference while checking in online more than 24hrs before departure."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and efficient, the polar opposite of the mad rush that can sometimes happen when cabin crew don't take charge of the boarding order. Crew were courteous and multilingual. Leg room felt a bit better than average for an international flight. Food was very tasty. The inflight entertainment selection and screen quality was excellent."
Cons: "They managed to run out of the Western breakfast option (which I did not want anyway, but many British tourists had to make do with yoghurt and fruit due to unfamiliarity with congee). The entertainment system is controlled by touchscreen only. An elegant solution that is simple to keep clean, but you get tired of holding your arm up at eye level."
Pros: "On time Good service Nice crew"
Pros: "Excellent crew, great food, best steak I have ever had on a plane. Fantastic overall."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Plane was old but clean."
Pros: "Best long flight ever! I could actually sleep - the crew tucked me in, I was so deranged I could not figure how anything worked but once they got me in snooze position, I was out. The food was horrible, but everything else was so wonderful, I did not care. Thank you for the amazing seat!"
Pros: "CX starts throwing out some old movies, it's nice to see some vintage from my kid age."
Cons: "How about some new Hollywood release please"
Pros: "Nice crews eating for a big guy."
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew, noticed I woke up and served me breakfast with only 45 mins till landing.. The flight was delayed and the airline had arranged for an escort to quickly get me to my next flight without even asking"
Cons: "The lack of content on the entertainment system, quickly ran out of movies to watch"
Pros: "Movie selection was fantastic!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours from Hong Kong. There are elaborate security check at the last minute. Not even sure if it was just to kill the time. Because the departure time kept moving to later and later time."
Pros: "I do the Canada-Australia trip fairly often to see my family, and Cathay-Pacific is my new fave. Cheaper than the usual, no problematic stops in the US and everything went perfectly smoothly. Thanks for looking after me!"
Pros: "Business class service was the best I've ever experienced from any carrier."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable! Cabin crew are not friendly, service sucks! Very dirty cabin. Very noisy because of crying children everywhere!"
Pros: "As always the food is better than 90% of airlines. The entertainment is always great and varied."
Cons: "The crew kept waking me up and were rude."
Pros: "Boarding was fast seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The food was very minimal"
Pros: "Attitude and service levels of the flight attendants was the best I have encountered for a while"
Pros: "Had a very present experience. Crew was lovely and helpful. Liked that we had menus for meals and snack readily available. Felt like the food was better than the average plane fair and wine with the meal of you want it. Plenty of movies on the media screen. There was often a line for the toilets. We must have been a well hydrated flight. Attendants were good with maintaining the tissue paper etc when notified that it had run out Overall a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "The efficiency of this crew was unparalleled"
Cons: "This was the least friendly crew I have ever encountered! Save one young gentleman, the crew was in such a rush to be efficient that the customer service suffered. The head stewardess was harsh, stressed and completely rude with both her staff and her crew. She snapped at several people during the flight and everyone was put on egg shells - not so comfortable for a 16hr flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of Toronto for two hours and we sat on the Tarmac with no explation. Insufficient food for a 15 hour flight with no snacks offered except for two minute noodles in a cup which they ran out of. Catered mostly for Chinese passengers. Entertainment was very poor too, only a small number of English movies with the majority of entertainment in Chinese. Crew were rude and dismissive. Overall a great disappointment."
Pros: "Food was pretty good and the staff helped with providing tea periodically."
Cons: "The chicken rice was a bit disappointing. On the way out from Bangkok to Fukuoka the food was better. I was left wandering around at the Hong Kong airport to find the gate. The transfer station at E2 was hard to find - more signs or better directions from personnel would have helped. This was in contrast to the exceptional treatment I received from CP when I was making my close connection in Hong Kong on the way from Bangkok to Fukuoka. The lady helped escort me through the airport to make sure I caught my flight and had been waiting there as I exited the plane -- that was fantastic but in sharp contrast to my experience on the return segments."
Cons: "Flight delayed in take off twice. Then diverted via Manila. Not ideal."
Cons: "The food was salty."
Pros: "The entertainment was very good. Overall, the service was satisfactory and I will fly Cathay Pacific in the future."
Cons: "The lavatories were not kept clean. Especially during long haul flights; more attention has to be paid to this area in particular."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and my luggage made it through the connection."
Cons: "The audio on the TV didn't work, but otherwise, no problem."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in to HK. The restaurant staff (not airline staff) came round offering HK$ 75 to each passenger for a snack. This much appreciated, but I wondered why a restaurant worker was doing this, not airline staff. Being delayed into Osaka, the captain kindly told us that buses were arranged. Good! I thought, until the organization was seen. Ground staff were no where to be seen. Eventually found them huddled at one arrival gate directling passengers to buses. Other passengers at the other arrival gate similarly swirling around without info or help. staff unhelpful, rude, uncaring. SHOCKED by level of incompetence."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process. Everyone rushed in when the gate was opened. No sequential boarding."
Pros: "Seat was great!"
Cons: "Long flight this good to offer drinks and snacks between meals"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding, crew, food"
Cons: "Baggage delayed for days"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable!"
Cons: "Didn’t like the portion in Manila airport where they take away your passport! I understand you don’t have a say in that but maybe giving customers clear instructions or expectations would help"
Cons: "Seat configuration in economy is exactly like a budget airline cebu pacific a330 both at 3-3-3..meal was just peanuts. It would actually be cheaper to use Cebu pacific and buy a proper meal"
Cons: "Food on time"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite. Cannot complain. The seat in Premium Economy was better than expected. Certainly worth the upgrade."
Cons: "The food was good but could have been better. I don't really know what to normally expect. The cloth napkins and metal flatware were certainly appreciated."
Pros: "no comment"
Cons: "check in was confusing, …."
Pros: "Crew attitude"
Cons: "Onboard WiFi with streaming IFE service or install seatback IFE systems. On-time departure."
Pros: "Service was great, took off on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "seat not very comfortable"
Cons: "too crowded"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and modern plane."
Pros: "Good Crew"
Cons: "Lower their fare"
Cons: "seat not comfortable, tray table hard to pull out, flight delayed 2 hours, flight crew didnt have immigration card (therefore had to wait in immigration line additional 25 min)"
Pros: "comfortable, clean washroom, superb food"
Cons: "Too many process checking. Right before boarding we were all asked to stand and go outside for another checking. Blue ladies should be on the table right before passengers come for another check. there is a store but coffee and bottled water are not allowed to bring on the chair..why?"
Pros: "Crew, service, comfort, food extra superb,"
Cons: "Add games on your entertainment, as you have movies for all ages, and have music as well like country song or old favourites would be much appreciated.."
Pros: "The experience was only okcustomer"
Cons: "Customer service needs to be improved and also online checkin (date option)."
Pros: "Some of the crew are really friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was very tight. I can’t imagine how the tall people can fit."
Pros: "food, crew, comfort were Okay. In-flight entertainment could use more improvement -- probably more asian content or travel-related shows."
Cons: "the 6-7 hour delay was handled very poorly -- lack of information; no airline manager so the answer all passengers received were "We are sorry but we aren't in a position to answer that." When asked about possible compensation, the ground crew answered "We'd have to wait until we reach Manila (which was at least 17 hours away)" -- This just made passengers more irritated and the ground crew were forced to call airport security. boarding very unorganized on our return flight."
Pros: "Almost 4 hours. Reason 'traffic." Lame"
Pros: "3 meals, drinks, pillow, blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste and sleep mask were included. Staff was friendly and kind. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "The check-in crew was very efficient and helpfull"
Cons: "Boarding was very delayed (1215am became 745am) with no announcement as to why until hours after flight should have departed. Food/refreshments was distributed but not allocated evenly. My elderly mother (the passenger) who was travelling on her own was only able to get a beverage"
Pros: "PAL service is great. always hospitable."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. and a lot of the times they ran out options."
Pros: "not full"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful especially because I flew with my 5 month old son. They were very nice. The seat had enough space."
Cons: "The food was ok but could do better."
Pros: "The service is good"
Pros: "the flight it self was good"
Cons: "the flight was delayed for more then an hour"
Pros: "Most of the flight was excellent. The food was really good, the seats were comfortable and I got sleep easily. The cabin crew was excellent. No words to say about that. The inflight entrainment was the best. The IFE improved a lot. Overall a really good experience indeed"
Cons: "Unorganized for seating, they don’t prioritize family with a baby to seat together. 12:35am flight still delayed!"
Pros: "good crew and entertainment"
Cons: "stinky food, fat girl beside me taking up all the room"
Pros: "On Time. Courteous crew, great service"
Cons: "Comfortable seats, good food, decent wines, inexpensive tickets"
Pros: "Plane from HNL to MNL is brand new with free entertainment in every headrest. Crew was pleasant and helpful, came by with water often."
Cons: "Food on return flight was terrible. Got stuck with pork selection for first meal, which was extremely fatty. Second meal, pork again, with eggs. Completely inedible. Disgusting, and Im not a very picky eater."
Pros: "great price. smooth & relaxed flight! No cons"
Pros: "Seat 31A"
Pros: "Flight crew services are good"
Pros: "everything was perfect"
Cons: "The ticket was never processed! Hence, when I arrived at the airport, I was unable to actually fly. Really, really disappointing. I recommend that Kayak reconsider its association with "Flight Network Sales.""
Cons: "No entertainment, small small seating space especially for tall passengers, flight crew who keep talking and gossiping out loud during the flight."
Pros: "My husband had a very good experienced with his flight. Food was great and the flight was fast."
Pros: "The flight crew definitely took good care of us"
Cons: "1. Poor seat comfort. Very high density exactly same as with a budget airlines.2. No inseat entertainment system. 3 the worse boarding process : elites and general boarding are started simultaneously 4. Online check In is impossible:"
Pros: "spacious seats, IFE and great meals"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Turbulent flight. Small washrooms."
Pros: "Ok its flight are nice and accomodation are nice"
Cons: "Foods are poor because they have only two choices!!!"
Cons: "Movie selection was marginal."
Cons: "Philippine Airlines airport was convoluted, no signage, no screens, horrible. Checked-in online to speed things up, but the ladies at the "Online check-in counter" was not there, and when they turned up, there were in training. Then the boarding gates/lounge. None of the restaurants accepted credit or debit cards (?). It's an international airport!?! Unbelievable. Once boarded, realised none of the seats had screens or any onboard entertainment unless you had downloaded the myPal app. It would have been handy if the check-in staff informed us of this. Then there were flight delays, with no explanation. No screens with any live updates. Nothing. Worst terminal on planet earth! Now the plane. It must be a plane bought from another airline who completed their 30 year lease of the aircraft, because it looked like from the 1980's or older. Falling apart, uncomfortable, toilets not working, dirty, run down. The air-crew were lazy and rude and were inconsistent. One would say they ran out of something, then the person next to me would ask another crew, and received what they requested (food, assistance, pens, etc). Horrible. The pilots rarely informed us of the flight updates. Just utterly horrible! I cannot believe I have to fly with them on my return leg back home :("
Pros: "I managed to get a comfortable seating"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Ability to plug into a movie or music and go to sleep"
Cons: "Not being woke up to find out if I want something to eat or drink. Aisle seat and i was being knocked a lot. I had been up over 30 hours and was exhausted."
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."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The overhead bin space of this airplane was too small. My suitcase, which fits on every other type of plane, could not fit on this one. I had to check it and then go grab it at baggage claim, therefore having to go through security again. This was not the most convient for a tight connection."
Cons: "There needed to be vegetarian options."
Pros: "because of the cancellation the night before I was expecting chaos. But everyone was friendly and in great spirits. No issues. Way to keep it kool!"
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"
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: "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: "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"
Cons: "The plane was so uncomfortable. I could not fall asleep and there were lots of people laying down covering their entire body across the 3 seat middle section. I asked for complimentary wine and was refused my request. I do not like air canada rouge. Awful airline!"

Pros: "None, Zero..."
Cons: "I did not like how we were treated by the United Airline Crew front desk when we were getting our boarding pass, they immediately say that due to myself having a Philippine Passport and A US Green Card holder they needed to check with Japan Immigration and in the end of waiting they said that we can’t board the plane because of my citizenship status and I needed to get a Japan VISA, I felt discriminated for something I do not know about when I purchased the tickets via online it doesn’t even show if there were any requirements needed in order for me to travel to Japan. My overall Review is a big ZERO and Unsatisfactory of how they treat their customers."

Cons: "In a 12 hrs journey only two meager meals were provided."
Pros: "The complimentary meals were good and I wasn't given too much. The flight attendants were very friendly and polite (and it was amusing to listen to how the English and Japanese pilot announcements differed, since the culturally-expected tones are WAY different.)"
Cons: "It was kind of hard to sleep on the plane. I ended up propoing up the armrest next to me and leaning my pillow against it, which sort of did the trick. My hips hurt from sitting so long, so maybe there's some kind of cushion technology that can help with that."
Pros: "Fantastic service. Much obliged for everything"
Cons: "Horribly rude. She even cursed at another passenger."

Pros: "I didn't like nothing"
Cons: "United needs to training your employees"
Pros: "Good flight"

Cons: "Flight was delayed Before we boarded but then once we boarded we Sat for another hour."
Cons: "I don't fully understand why, but I was unable to get my boarding pass for my flight to Chicago from Toronto until I arrived in the Toronto airport. Toronto airport sequesters off international arrivals, so in an ideal world, I would have been able to go through security directly to into the U.S. terminal, bypassing Canada customs. However, the United desk that I needed to get my boarding pass from located just before security was unmanned. The very kind Air Canada attendant called for a representative multiple times, but after 45 minutes of waiting no one ever arrived to print my boarding pass for me. The Air Canada employee then gave up on any United staff showing up and suggested I try going through Canadian customs and checking in at the same departure desk travelers first entering the airport would go through and make sure to let them know how long I was waiting. The United employee I spoke with told me that I was impatient and should have continued waiting because now she didn't know what would happen with my checked bag and that I may well need to wait 2 hours more for that to get sorted out. I was rather surprised by her overly negative response and apparent threat. If I was irate or yelling that might have been warranted, but frankly, I was so tired from the international travel I didn't have the energy to fight with her. Regardless, I wish I had been more impatient, it was far easier to go through customs twice than I expected. I would have preferred to spend more time in the lounge inside the terminal than to stand by the United desk waiting for someone to arrive to print my boarding pass. At any rate, Canadian+US customs have it together; when I went through U.S. customs to get into the terminal they had the photo of my checked bag right there."
Cons: "They delayed my flight, so now I get back home really late. Thanks, United."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding was easy."
Cons: "I wasn't informed when I booked that the flight was operated by Air Canda's budget variant, rouge, and not Air Canda as was listed on Kayak. I had no option to select seats, and when we boarded I was seated on the last row by the galley with no reclining seats and the florescent lights were on nearly the whole time on a 10 hour overnight flight. There are no seat back TVs and the free streaming service went down repeatedly just like the AC outlet at our seats (there are only two of these for three people). I booked this trip nearly a year in advance, and I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't informed that I was flying a budget airline on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "I like that we landed."
Cons: "This box seems too small to fit it all in. It's United - underwhelmed as usual."
Cons: "I didn't like buying a ticket for a flight with an ANA number and advertised as ANA but then flying United. I don't want to fly united."
Pros: "united over book. i got boarding pass but no seat number. United charge me $400. I want me money back."
Cons: "Plane from Toronto to Denver could have been a bit bigger / nicer for that long a trip."
Pros: "We got there safely and on time."
Cons: "Bathrooms too small and unsanitary. Sick people on board spreading germs. Headphones fall out of kids ears. Airplane too cold. Food not good. Bread is terrible. Wasteful packaging and serving of food. Nowhere to throw away trash. Bad timing and content of meals based on final destination."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could"
Cons: "4 hour weather delay; missed all connecting flights; spent night in O'Hare; no food at night; no vegan food; got home 12 hours later than planned with little no sleep."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and uncomfortable. And we never pushed pack on time for all my flights"
Cons: "Incredible long walk passengers should be told when you have such a distance to walk. Passport sign in is not very user friendly should be a better scanner and easier questions they are confusing"
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Staff were helpful, the flight took off on time and the trip was smooth."
Cons: "No complaints on any front."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised when they announced those with large carry ons could get tagged and pick up at final destination."
