Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Very attractive staff in flight"
Cons: "Having to unpack and repack when carry on bags are checked in waiting hall"
Pros: "Overall experience"
Pros: "Boarding is about the only thing I liked."
Cons: "This was a 2 layover rebooking of a one layover flight, which was late (I would be missing my connection). I asked an Air France rep in Japan to assign me an exit row seat (it’s a 14 hrs flight and I am almost 6 ft tall). She showed me the plane diagram and picked a seat, but when I arrived it turned out I was in a row directly behind. WiFi did not worked and the flight attendant said “they could not do anything” My film was interrupted twice (with a random film drubbed in Korean) and had to be reset manually Food was not great (and menues are identical on all delta flights - this was my 5th delta flight in the course of one week), the snack in particular (leek and mushroom cream soup-like mass wrapped in a tortilla - who ever thought of this? And one of the flight attendants was aloof and snappy."
Pros: "Quick service, good information."
Cons: "Not applicable, it was a good flight."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."
Pros: "A330 very nice airplane. Clean and comfortable in Delta One. Very professional cabin crew. Very good boarding process, even with every bag hand inspected."
Cons: "Flight left the gate early and took off two hours late. Arrived Atlanta 100 minutes late. Why? 7000 pounds overweight. EZE departure switched runways as we left gate, requiring removal of cargo containers, not once, but twice. In summary, DL bet wrong on runway and wind component, at the expense of on time arrival and thus connections."
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "The crew at gate were amazing. I showed up without my immigration paper. The literally ran me to immigration to get a replacement and ran me back to the gate having the flight delayed minimally. I am incredibly grateful for their quick and efficient response,"
Pros: "Nice enough crew"
Cons: "The MD88 is such a crappy plane for anyone that wasn't born a dwarf. I'm tired of filling out these and yet you do nothing about it. It is criminal to cram is in like sardines like this."
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Punctual departures. Adequate overheard space."
Cons: "Food was mediocre for a 5-6 hour flight. I expected a little bit more."
Pros: "The crew was amazingly helpful!"
Cons: "Haven't left yet!!!"
Cons: "4+ total hour delay"
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "The comfort and attention on the part of the cabin crew of the flight was quite good."
Cons: "What I did not like was the process to go to the assigned air terminal in El Salvador, the process was slow and we took the flight at the end of the last one. The same was the process from Los Angeles to Seattle that was our scale. Process too long and go back through security, the boarding gate was almost closed. I think that for these cases they should leave more time for the stopovers that come from international flights. For my part I did not choose this option, since I was traveling with a person with mobility problems and separated the group for admission to the process of entering the USA."
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."
Pros: "The plane was really nice, food was good. I had a pleasant time."
Pros: "Delta never used to be my first choice in airlines, but of my recent experience with them has been excellent. The people from the counter to the plane have been professional and courteous. This is why I will fly with them more frequently."
Pros: "Even though one couldn't hear an announcement Delta did have a staff person tell people where to line up for different zones. Flight was fine and on time."
Cons: "Couldn't clearly hear any announcements and once it was getting closer to boarding time as usual so many people just start gathering in a mass. (It would be so much easier to have signs label Zone 1 ,2, etc.)"
Pros: "No food or entertainment on short flight"
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Cons: "No food was offered."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Cons: "The main cable seats although newer were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"
Pros: "30 min. early!"
Cons: "Only pretzels"
Pros: "Free movies/TV is a great amenity. Overhead bins were full by the time I boarded, so I gate-checked my bag. The staff was helpful and accommodating, which made that process quick and easy."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. There's got to be a more efficient way than zones."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"

Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "Entertainment is the same as three weeks ago when I flew the same route with them."

Pros: "Good. Everything went well"
Pros: "Everything but I will never travel on COPA again and have warned everyone on facebook and the internet why.... because you require and exit ticket out of Guatemala. What if I am traveling by bus, by car or by boat?? Guatemal immigration does not require this. I have friends with immigration and I have confirmed this.....Show me the law that is enforceble.....Please"
Cons: "Why do you require an exit ticket out of Guatemala on my return trip. I flew from Columbia to Guatemala with plans to leave Guatemala by boat last year and had to buy another ticket only to cancel it later. I talked to Immigration in Guatemala and they say there is no reason for you to do this. I just returned from Panama and was asked for an exit ticket from Guatemala again. I have warned all of my friends to travel with other airlines other than Copa only for this issue. I will never travel on Copa again until you fix this."
Pros: "Overall the staff where great and respectful."
Cons: "Seats can be uncomfortable on the back and neck."
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."

Pros: "They give you actual substantial food!"
Pros: "2 free checked bags, and hot sandwich and drink in coach"
Cons: "Can't think on anything"
Cons: "The night before my 7am flight, I received an e-mail from Copa saying that my flight was cancelled, without explanation. When I tried to phone customer service, I was repeatedly hung up on. The e-mail indicated that more information would be forthcoming, but there was no follow-up. My flight was never rescheduled, and I was forced to buy another flight at the last minute from another airline. Because of the cancellation of my original flight, I also missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Swift service (land and on board), but the seats don't have any leg room ..."
Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Todo excelente"
Pros: "great service"
Pros: "Vey accurate time"
Cons: "The web checking was a bit slow"
Pros: "I was looking to fly to Costa Rica and found a price offer for $70 through Volaris. I thought this was a good deal until I looked at the baggage policy. Turns out you have to pay for each bag,bringing my luggage total to $50. Thats when I noticed Copa Airlnes had the same price for airfare plus two free bags! I was sold. Overall great service!"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight due to flight being changed to a different gate than what was written in my ticket."
Pros: "Thank you for offering food, but something's without meat would have me flying copa every time!"
Pros: "Checking , the agent was very polite and helpful."

Pros: "Comfy seats onboard Good selection of movies Decent food from MEX to SFO"
Cons: "I purchased ticket stating business class for both legs, but the first leg of my trip did not have a business class cabin at all. I did not get what i paid for!!!! My seat back IFE did not work at all. Boarding experience was terrible and took forever. The lounge MEX was overcrowded with non-functioning wifi"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Just the organization at airport but is not problem of AM"
Pros: "Boarding. Very confusing who were they calling to board. I had Amex privileges and did not pick up when I could bosrd"
Pros: "Everything was good, the food, the comfort, the entertainment, the service"
Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "The check in process. We are Indian citizens with US green cards. The Mexican consulate says this combo is good enough to enter Mexico, but apparently it wasn't good enough for the people checking us in! They took our passports and has us wait before immigration in a detainment room. THEY WERE WRONG"
Pros: "The ove"
Cons: "Even offered a Boody Mary Zor other drinks on the short flight!"
Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."
Pros: "Was on time and very secured"
Cons: "Did not have tv."
Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."
Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and missed my connecting flight, they had me going all over LAX and took 3 hours to finally put me in a standby. Aeroméxico and Delta kept blaming each other and obviously I was really frustrated."

Pros: "Everything was great,,, good crew attitude"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, good service."
Cons: "Entertainment system didnt work on the way to Mexico."

Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"
Pros: "boarding, service, entertainment"
Cons: "some music while boarding not of my choosing interfered with my music and seemed unnecessary"
Pros: "On board service, entertainment and food was a nice surprise. Wine and beer offered free of charge with the meal, great movie selection without charge as well and very helpful crew during the boarding process. Seats in economy had plenty of leg room and space on the sides."
Cons: "Food was good and better than my experience with other airlines but still not as good as it use to be a few years ago."
Pros: "Seat assignment"
Cons: "Airlines are skipping on quality"
Cons: "The setas space is too short"
Cons: "Bad service!"
Pros: "Good attention"
Pros: "The crew is great, and the comfort of the airplane was outstanding!! Really happy with the whole experience."

Cons: "The crew was very rude, since the counter not helpful at all. The boarding was late."
Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."
Cons: "They screwed me on my baggage, they are the slowest, most untrained people I’ve dealt with. Worst check in experience. No matter where you fly, no matter what day you will be delayed. Canceled flights, re-routes .. you name it. Poor customer service to top it off."
Cons: "Our flight got changed and we received no notification. Instead of 1 stop we ended up with two. Two flights were delayed therefore we missed the third one. Just a terrible experience. The staff was very rude, had no people skills, and didn’t know how to explain the situation."
Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"
Cons: "Seat 10C - does not stream properly."
Pros: "Good movies and wifi"
Cons: "I know its airport issue but I have to say my flight would have been perfect if I didn’t have to wait more than an hour wait line for migration check in Mexico."
Cons: "The flight from DC took a lot of time, as consequence I missed the other flight to Zacatecas. Now I have to wait 10 hours and the outrageous part is that I had to pay $200 extra for the other ticket"
Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."
Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."
Cons: "Confort, FOOD"
Cons: "Aeromexico lost our luggage"
Pros: "I will not fly in this airline never."
Cons: "Dalay,boarding not very well organized."
Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."
Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"
Pros: "good food, good entertainment, on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "The Aeromexico staff is polite and respectful. There were movies available on the flight."
Cons: "At first we were told we needed to pay an additional fee for departure tax. I researched this issue ahead of time and knew the departure tax is now included in the ticket price--it has been that way for a couple years. We had to explain that to the Aeromexico agent. But to her credit, she looked into it and eventually agreed we did not have to pay the extra fee. It cost $65 for an extra bag. Seems steep but whatever, we paid it. The gate changed but no one told the ticket counter. When we arrived at the gate, dozens of other passengers were there but the electronic board stated the flight was at a different gate. Aeromexico staff needed to look into it to discover the gate had been moved. Not impressed with their internal communications. The flight departed about 40 minutes late. Not bad. The food was awful. Could only eat the cookie."
Pros: "The pilots seem to be very skilled at landing. All planes touched down very smoothly. This may be an odd observation, and no one would really mention this - but it's important to point this out."
Cons: "Overall, Aeromexico is a very poor quality airline. Flight delays meant we lost a day in Cancun - and there was little or no communication from anyone regarding next steps. There is no coordination, no organization, food and coffee were of poor quality, and it an airline to be avoided at any cost."
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."
Pros: "Very nice crew.. And arrived early."
Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "No turbulence"
Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"
Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but being stuck between two other passengers who occupied some of my space was unnerving"
Cons: "Communication of delays in Charlotte. Working airplane, for a newer plane the one side of the screens didn’t work and the engine needed to bat after by another machine which is upsetting to think"
Cons: "Too much advertisement!!!! Between the credit card offers and aa advantage program it’s overwhelming. When trying to enjoy the onboard entertainment it was once ahead too much advertising. Overkill!!!!"
Pros: "The crew: very helpful, did their best to correct errors regarding special meals"
Cons: "Seat assignment. Others, besides myself and my husband, were not seated together, and in our case at opposite side of the plane, but, even though the flight was full, there was no reason for that that I could see (some solo passengers were seated next to a member of a split couple/family)."
Pros: "Fast birding and arriving early"
Cons: "Entertainment, there were no seat displays for 10 hours flight"
Pros: "Most was pretty standard. We did arrive 30 minutes early, which was nice."
Cons: "My bag was checked at the gate, and I was told I could pick it up in Sint Maarten, my final destination. I arrived in Sint Maarten to learn that AA had left my luggage at Charlotte Airport, despite having landed 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"
Cons: "4 delays.. weather suc’s when trying to fly"
Cons: "Seats could have been better and inflight entertainement missing"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everyone was too hot, sweltering and perspiring, way to crowded and packed. Literally could not moved at all."
Pros: "We left a few minutes early"
Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."
Pros: "Good movie"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "The pilot was very apologetic about being delayed but we were able to catch the flight because it was delayed for about more than 2 hours."
Cons: "It was cold in the beginning of the flight. We were delayed at the first flight and when we got to the gate there were no one available at the gate to check us in. We had to go to customer service to get on board."
Pros: "There are three meals during the trip."
Cons: "Not at this time."
Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"
Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"

Cons: "Food in general"
Pros: "The crew are nice"

Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Cons: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Pros: "Most things."
Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours which caused us (me, wife, 4yo, and 7mo) to miss our connection from LAX to HNL. We had to stay the night in LA and take a morning flight to HNL. But despite the delay, the gate agent in Charlotte did a good job of updating people and remained very polite even when it was clear people were getting frustrated and starting to get sharp with him. Pilots did a good job of trying to make up as much time as possible. I can't remember how much time they shaved off but I think it was more than 20 minutes. Customer service in LA was solid too. Went to CSD to get our tickets changed. They had already changed our flight to a 8 AM flight. We asked if we could take a later flight because of the kids and he was able to accommodate. They also gave us vouchers for 3 meals and a night at the Holiday Inn. Having a delayed flight is never fun but the AA staff was amazing throughout."
Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"
Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Pros: "Food was good and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Some of the crew were not friendly. They almost seemed irritated when asked a question. I felt extremely bad for the foreign passengers because they were asking about customs and the forms and some of the crew were just rude to them. Imagine being in a foreign country and people not being helpful- embarrassment to USA. Entertainment was ok- old movies were shown rather than a little more current."
Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"
Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"
Pros: "Refreshments we're good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "There weren't any screens in the headrests for individual movie-viewing."
Pros: "Seats were pretty good. Food was fine. Drinks were sufficient. Flight was on time, boarding was efficient enough, luggage was fine."
Cons: "Among four us us in one block of center seats, each way one entertainment system was inop. Same was true on a similar A330 flight we took three years ago. Big deal on a long flight. Cabin crew disappears into their curtained enclave as soon as they can. No coach seats are comfortable overnight, and these definitely were not."
Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Cons: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The trip took about 48 hours. After a cancelled flight I got no hotel discount. Several flights were delayed or cancelled and in the end I ended up just going to a city 3 hours from where I live and renting a car to drive home. My luggage still hasn't arrived. This was the worst, most stressful travel experience of my life."
Pros: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"
Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."
Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."
Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."
Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"
Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"
Cons: "We got held up in Calgary due to the fact they lost everyone's checked bags then we finally got to LA they still had lost them. They told us they would have the bags to us in a matter of hours but it took 3 days."
Pros: "but only a few minutes late arriving ..."
Cons: "Boarded on time then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for the water truck."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."
Pros: "Crew was great!! Smooth landing!!"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"
Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"
Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."
Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."
Pros: "Loaded quickly,"
Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"
Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."
Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"
Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"
Pros: "All aspects of the actual flight were good. The flight attendants were pleasant and professional and the food choices were good."
Cons: "The flight we had booked was cancelled. Were were rebooked on a different flight - the time was good as it got us home when we were supposed to arrive. The changed flight involved an additional transfer, which was stressful because of tight timeline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating."
