Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Pros: "Loved the swift checking in at Seatac, being picked out of the Special check-in line, tended to by a Ndeye, smooth all the way through to the gate. Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."

Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."

Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "I like the fact that I was issued a credit for my flight. It was booked in error and had to be cancelled."

Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Attendants were courteous quick and attentive. On board entertainment was awesome. Kept us fed with main course snacks and beverages throughout. Made a 10 hour flight bearable."
Cons: "Music selection available was seriously lacking but the movies and games made up for that. Also Air France going into Greece was not as good. Seats had a gap between seat and window, food left much to be desired and service was not as courteous as delta's."
Cons: "No power to charge"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not anything"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Delta does a great job overall. We used free skymiles from Amex and it was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Not enough leg room! BS!"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Everything! Flight late, seats to close, worst customer service in the skies!"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, very helpful after our plane was diverted"
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Somehow we were double booked and double billed. We got to the airport 3 hours early and checked our bags. All 3 were lost and searched. Everything was put back precariously and there was shampoo and lotion everywhere."
Pros: "i love the view from the window seats and that I was able to relax and the snacks."
Pros: "As expecred."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process."
Cons: "Tiny seats with limited legroom. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Because of Boeing disaster did not go to Halifax but were sent by Westjet to TO and then on with Air France. Boarding areas in TO are a long way away (lot of walking) and customs in TO is frustrating and takes a long time."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "We could have used more legroom between the seats."
Cons: "Always delays with this airline, hope their service improves now they have been bought out by Air Canada. Staff need training on how to deal with their delays, rather than the "I know as much as you" answer. Their staff have always pleaded blind ignorance when disruptions occur. AVOID."
Pros: "Great crew, very accommodating for a small and short flight"
Cons: "Food, food, food"
Cons: "Total rip off. I won't be flying West Jet again if it can be avoided"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was very good."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have coffee on the flight. All they had to offer was a snack and a glass of water."
Pros: "Staff was lazy"
Cons: "Horrible check in Rude Not sure if I’ll fly WestJet Luggage was wet when it arrived Luggage took forever to come to terminal"
Cons: "More water and a tv like air Canada"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "The airport staff was horrendous."
Pros: "noone booked in the seat beside me allowed for more room."
Cons: "food (ran out of items I wanted) seats are mediocre no entertainment stewardess forgot my cream for the coffee - too busy chatting with another passenger."
Pros: "Quick, easy, comfortable. No complaints"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin."
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work on laptop - only on phone or tablet. Westjet seating is tight."
Pros: "The crew was great overal. Great sport and attitude with humor."
Cons: "The flight in Ottawa was delayed twice which made me change my plans twice. The plane was also a little cold heading to Toronto. Otherwise the help from Paul getting checked in was fantastic. He made the bad situation of a delay worth it just talking with him and apologizing for the delay with true empathy . Thank you Paul"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "That westjet q400 is an awful aircraft with terrible slimline seats"
Pros: "Crew and staff are pleasant."
Cons: "There was a typo in my reservation (either a WJ problem or a Kayak problem). As a result I couldn't do an online checkin and ended up getting a middle seat at the airport."
Pros: "counter staff were friendly, courteous. helpful. Flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "prop- jet was loud & bumpy while on the ground at takeoff"
Pros: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and efficient"
Cons: "The plane is cramped and a noisey propeller model."
Pros: "The friendliness, the options through the app with movies etc"
Cons: "Need more leg room on board"
Pros: "This leg of the travelling was fine. I know I got fleeced on the price of the round trip to go home for a funeral but didn't realize just how bad until my seatmate told me he paid a third of what I did. Note to self: Don't ask the traveller next to you how much they paid for their ticket..."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment unless you download their app, however there was no signs or announcements to warn passengers of this. Flight was delayed and they lost my baggage even though it was a direct flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I went through customs and then walked via escalators and moving walk ways to b4. It took me almost a hour. I was the last to board I am sure And had to collect my own luggage and take it from one point to another. I am 70. thank god, when I got on the plane I sat in 3a and was offered a free glass of wine. halleluya. I was exhausted Toronto airport is always a nightmare. I travel a lot and will avoid this airport if I can. I do like West jet but Delta /west jet connection means I have to take my bag from one place to another and I walked miles and could have missed my flight. I am tired. I am going to bed"
Pros: "Korean air is very efficient."
Cons: "We had to rent a car to get to Ottawa because West Jet had cancelled all their flights due to weather. All Air Canada flights were operating. We waited in line for 2 hours at the airport for West Jet to tell us that we needed to call them regarding a refund. We called them and were on hold for an hour and 45 minutes. Then we were told we had to call the travel agent...we on hold for 2 hours. We then called Korean air and they told us they couldn’t contact West Jet-no one knew what the value of the flight from Toronto to Ottawa was. We were only provided with a refund of $4 (for the taxes) when it cost us $280 to rent a car to get to Ottawa. I will never book a flight with West Jet again."
Cons: "Boarding outside with no notice or warning"
Cons: "Our hour-long flight home from Toronto to Ottawa was delayed by two days. WestJet provided a hotel voucher and food vouchers for one day but refused to refund us for a car rental that would get us home in time. While we made our own way home, we were emailed to say that our flight home was delayed twice more."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and how accommodating they were of me and of their guests!"
Cons: "There was quite a delay on my flight and I didn’t get an email to let me know there was a delay. Because I happened to go to check in earlier, I happened to noticed the delay. I wasn’t happy about not getting an email. I called West Jet to find out about the delay and it took approximately an hour to speak to someone. When I did, the delay was explained as weather related and the reason for not getting an email was because they hadn’t gotten to it yet I believe. I wasn’t happy with that as a reply. The flight was then delayed again by several minutes. I would have appreciated some form of compensation as I was going to get a lift home from the airport and ended up having to pay for a taxi as I was coming in so late. In all other flights, I know west jet to be quite an accommodating airline. The crew was great, I simply didn’t appreciate how the delay was handled."
Pros: "Got a window seat Good deal on price from kayak"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hrs Lost my luggage and no word on when it will be returned Never told us about why delayed"
Cons: "Didn't fly on the day I was supposed to fly due to delays. I had to figure out for myself that I wasn't going to make my connection and thus I went back home. We agreed to itinerary for the next day that had a 2+ hour wait at la Guardia and yet I still almost missed the N.Y. to Tampa flight due to delays out of toronto. Had to sprint from one terminal to the other. In Toronto we sat on the tarmac for 90 mins, and this was after dealing with security and other issues with checkin before i even got on the plane. For example, it was difficult to explain that i had already paid for my checked bag the day before. As a result I never got a chance to eat the entire day. And then my bag didn't get to Tampa until later that night anyways. Although the individual staff members were all very nice, there were institutional flaws that made two days very frustrating. I have some sort of debilitating delay on more than half my flights over the last few years, and rarely is there ever an explanation or compensation."
Cons: "It was delayed."
Pros: "Kayak was great to book through. Very simple. Plane ride there was great."
Cons: "Plane ride home wasn't good due to the airplane propellers being louder then usual and noisy, a little unsettling."

Pros: "It was on time. Quick to board."
Cons: "I’m used to entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment selection is lacking."
Pros: "Quick, efficient and funny friendly staff"
Cons: "Delays Boarding: boarding from both doors: back door and front door, but no direction from the crew to anyone. Ended up with passengers trying to get in the front from the back and passengers trying to get to the back from the front. This created another extra 15 minutes delay when everyone were stuck in the middle...The rest of the passengers waited outside in Canadian winter cold. On a flight already late."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "I like that I got the plus seat for no extra charge."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful."

Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Flight staff"
Cons: "Had to disembark. So left and arrived much later than planned."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. However it was not really within their control."
Pros: "Always on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Better snacks like porter"
Cons: "No entertain system"
Cons: "Same comment as the previous flight ref movies. I wont take Westjet again on a long flight without movie screens. Not all old people have Iphones or laptop computers. Mike C."
Pros: "The gate and air crew were very friendly. Flight right on time."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Cons: "the wifi is awful"
Pros: "Flying portion was fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed for mechanical issues.... then upon landing trapped in cabin filled with exhaust then again trapped in a locked hallway."
Pros: "Pilot did great job, superb smooth landing."
Cons: "The two male flight attendants could have been a bit more friendly."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
Pros: "It was average."
Cons: "4 hour delay is unacceptable"
Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "didn't get my flight you said booking was guaranteed refund 24 hours but when i call to change or refund you said the airline would not change or refund. you didn't live up to your end. if you refund i would consider tat but for now. i would never use kayak again and will post my experience"
Cons: "you could have change my return when i called 2 hours after or 18 hours after now i have to pay 500 to get home you should live up to your rules and refund my money"
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."
Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Super-friendly, easy-to-understand crew"
Cons: "Too short of a flight for WiFi or snacks"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Cons: "Someone stole an ipad and that forced us the be delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "The cleaniless of the flight can get better"
Pros: "Flying AA. Excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Cons: "It was a little hot in the plane at during start and touchdown"
Pros: "Great Wifi! After reading bad reviews it was actually ok. Flew business on the A319 (single aisle plane) and it reminded me of qantas 737. I think for a short haul day flight I may just put up with economy instead for the price. Food is ok. I think with AA you have to pick your aircraft, it makes a difference what plane you fly as to what you get in business class. FA's were great. Overall I'd fly them again. Food was ok."
Cons: "They asked everyone to put the window shades down but I fly window seat because I like looking out! It was a day flight too! LAX T4 lounge is being refurbished so you need to go to T5 and make sure it's not the regional lounge!"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "Arrived very early"
Cons: "Old plane and the movie app kept cutting out"
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Pros: "•Boarding was easy - small plane. •No crazy flight maneuvers, so I guess good pilots"
Cons: "•Cash only for drinks?! C'mon AA, it's 2017. •Charging for checked bags is greedy, I don't care if others do it, that's not a good excuse + Southwest doesn't charge. •Plane left 30 min late (and arrived 30 late), then had to sit on Tarmac waiting for a gate. •Placed us at the farthest bagged claim from our arrival gate (all bagge claims walking up to ours were empty), so thanks for thinking of the customer first there. •I reserved an aisle seat, they changed me to window without asking. Thanks. •Overall, there are too many other choices in airlines... I may just be one customer, but this is one less they'll have, as other major carriers haven't ever racked up this amount of annoyances in a single trip with me before."
Pros: "Flight attendant, Billy, on flight to Chicago encouraged everyone to help each other figure out how to manage close connection times due to a long delay leaving Charlottesville. He then arranged for folks with short times to move forward. We would never have made our connection without him. Gate agents also kept the door open for us as we dashed to our connecting flight and hustled us on board. Amazingly the ground crew also got our luggage transferred in the short 10 minutes we had. Thank you American!"
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "My business class seat was comfortable"
Cons: "4hr boarding delay and no entertainment system whatsoever on a 6hr flight."
Cons: "Still in the waiting room waiting for this flight"
Pros: "It was fine. I was comfortable and I slept throat most of it."
Cons: "Could have slept in for another couple of hours!!:"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "They delayed the flight like 5 different times and then the luggage took over a half hour"
Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."
Pros: "The professionalism and attitude of staff was excellent. Also in Prem Economy the leg room was good."
Cons: "The snack and drinks were not at the same standard as everything else. I expected to be better in prep economy. There was no entertainment also on board while the internet was not free"
Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."
Cons: "UNcomfortable seats. They don’t recline."
Pros: "I had the front seat so nice and spacious spot"
Cons: "Didn't love the wait on the bus to get to the planeb but I guess that is unavoidable"
Cons: "Awful. Recieved flight delay info then recieved another email hour before flight moving it back tonoriginal time. Based on your emails my wife and daughter missed their flight. Total disaster. Makin me reconsider wver using kayak again"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."

Pros: "No entertainment and have to pay extra for any eats."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."
Pros: "The bar is pretty low with United. Even being a 1K member, I am usually just hoping the flight arrives on time. This time it didn't. The crew was polite, which isn't always the case."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."
Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."
Pros: "My seat"
Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."
Pros: "Offered drinks and snacks."
Cons: "My suitcase's handle was damaged by the time it reached baggage claim. I will need to buy a new suitcase now."
Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaos. By the time my group is called, an announcement is made about running low on overhead space and some may need to check in their carry ones. Happens on every United flight? On the flight from Vancouver, the wifi wasn't even working."
Pros: "Easy to board an deplane, as the plane is about the size of my bath tub."
Cons: "Can't believe United is still flying these propeller soda cans in 2017. This plane was absolutely disgusting...smelled like urine throughout, was dirty and grimy, had worn out seats. Basically like borrowing your college roommates 20 year old Buick that he got for free from his grandma. Customer service from the flight attendant was on par with the plane quality. Was snapping at customers and annoyed that everyone didn't understand how he wanted to balance the load in the plane with moving people's seats around. I get why that is super important, but that doesn't mean you can be a jerk about it to *customers* who haven't experienced the pleasure of flying in a pinewood derby car in the sky before."
Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."
Pros: "Tv, food, outlet to charge phone."
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly and seats were small and uncomfortable for a 4.5h flight."
Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"
Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"
Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"
Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."
Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"
Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"
Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."
Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."
Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"
Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."
Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."
Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."
Pros: "Short flight, really appreciated the cups of water that were offered."
Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."
