Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Was able to get home toward Los Angeles with delays and change in plane so did not get proper seating as reserved."
Cons: "The plane was delayed from Tokyo to Los Angeles due to a pilot staffing issue. The plane stopped in Honolulu at 6:00AM in the morning and no staff was able to assist so they made everyone go through the run-around to have the luggage scanned for agriculture. Then they stated that even though we had pre-check, we did not qualify and the boarding pass was not issued with Honolulu to LAX. Over 5 hours delay and did not know that we could have stayed in Hawaii free room and meals. Terrible and one of the worst vacations ever for returning to the US. The food was not great."
Pros: "Professional and friendly crew. Food was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very polite. Great food and service."
Pros: "I had to cancel my trip but I couldn’t return any money for not used tickets, lost everything."

Pros: "Crews were amazing."
Pros: "the selection of beverages and the crew are very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Selection of entertainment"
Pros: "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."
Pros: "Staff are the best of all airlines I have been in."
Pros: "This flight was part of a longer trip - I flew from Hartford, CT, USA on a different airline and connected to Japan Airlines in Chicago. I flew Chicago to Tokyo in JAL and then from Tokyo to Manila again on JAL. The service on first leg was very good and friendly of my JAL flights, food was good, seat was comfortable. Then on my second flight from Tokyo to Manila I was shocked but thrilled that I had been given an upgrade to first class. The whole experience was outstanding! The seat was incredibly comfortable and the food was phenomenal. The only problem, not that you could call it a problem, was that I was so comfortable with my fluffy pillow and fully reclining seat that I couldn’t stay awake to finish my movie! Thank you!"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Very helpful staff. Easy check in. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "I was fed two meals and snacks/drinks in between for a 14 hour flight. Love the little TV in front of the seat and the blanket and pillow. Crew was very sweet. Overall positive and good first international flight. Would choose Japan Airlines again! <3"
Cons: "Only a little hard to sleep upright in economy class seat. I wasn't able to fall fully asleep."
Pros: "This airline is efficient, polite, and has a great business class product. Seats are large and open. Easy to move into different positions. Tv is in readable large and clear with a mini screen in the remote. The food was outstanding. Waygu beef medium rare. Washrooms are the cleanest in the sky. Definite repeat!"
Pros: "They were every where all the time! No sitting around in the back like most airlines. Movies Hallie and many first run and Oscar nominated."
Pros: "Loved the food. Cabin attendants were very friendly, polite and helpful."
Pros: "Courteous cabin crews, must be from Japanese culture."
Cons: "On Feb.16, 2018 JL745 Narita to Mnl, flight was delayed, though it was constantly announced but not the reason why. Other than that, I will always fly JAL whenever possible."
Pros: "customer service spoke English"
Cons: "1) when my flight was delayed significantly due to weather, I was not notified until I got to the airport 2) when the same flight was cancelled, I was on hold with JAL for over an hour before I could speak with customer service\ 3) customer service could not rebook me for another flight until 3 whole days later 4) I had to look on JAL's website and inform their customer service about flight options that were somewhat sooner 5) no compensation was offered for 2 days of delays and flying out of another city (I paid for my own transport to this other city in order to make my final destination on time)"
Pros: "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
Cons: "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."
Cons: "BA flight with poorer screens and food than JAL"
Pros: "The crew were very polite"
Cons: "No choice of menu and films only very limited choice."
Pros: "The legroom is comfortable for a tall person."
Pros: "I really loved the food they served on the airline, along with the entertainment and the stuardesses. It made for a very enjoyable trip."
Cons: "We didn’t dislike anything except the comfort of the seats, but of course that is expected for the Economy Class."
Pros: "service was excellent. Seating was OK in spite of it being economy."
Cons: "One meal was sufficient in quantity, mediocre in quality. Other meals and snacks were skimpy in frequency and quantity."
Pros: "I am looking forwards to using them again! I paid more using this airline than their competitors. But after completing my trip I will have to say it was well worth it and will using them again."
Pros: "The JAL flight was great. Seats were comfortable and leg room was very good. Crew was excellent too and very attentive."
Cons: "The food was not good at all on this flight. My last flight on JAL in 2010 the food was excellent. Not sure what happened but the quality of the food has gone down and it was disappointing. Luckily had a bite at the airport before boarding to sustain us on this long flight."
Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
Pros: "Great service. Great in flight entertainment. Served a meal. Had USB charge port. Spacious even though I was in the last row."
Cons: "Wish they offered a vegetarian meal, however the food was great and I still was satisfied with the parts I could eat."
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient"
Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."
Cons: "Never make it on flight because the connection flight so messed up. Need to purchase new ticket with different airline finally."
Pros: "The check-in was flawless and gave me accurate information about my luggage being checked all the way through. I had an overnight layover in Tokyo and they handled my luggage the way I expected."
Pros: "Food, entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Beverage size could be more"
Pros: "The flight's timing and airports are perfect for a short weekend getaway between Seoul and Tokyo. JAL service is also perfect!"
Pros: "Everything was good, solid across the board. Nothing to not like. I especially liked the legroom in economy. Probably the best legroom I"ve had in economy."
Pros: "The space, the courtesy of the staff, the food. Loved the noodle breakfast."
Cons: "Could not understand the announcements ... what a thing to "complain" about. Could not choose out seats online."
Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Crew members were very nice. All staff members definitely embodied the courteousness and professionalism of Japan. The house slippers were a nice touch and we really enjoyed the large movie selection. The miso soup with meals was great! Overall really enjoyed our flying experience with jal and would fly with them again."
Cons: "The food for our return flight from haneda to Honolulu was definitely subpar compared to the food we had on our first jal Honolulu to Hong Kong flight (layover in narita). Also the plane was not as big and older so we didn't have the touch screen. We were quite impressed on our Honolulu to Hong Kong flight, then were a little let down on our haneda to Honolulu flight."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Japanese food not great"
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Pros: "Good food and excellent service On time"
Cons: "There are not much choices for movies News uses Japanese only"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and boarding went smoothly. The flight was late but the staff seemed courteous, polite, and apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "I thought I had ordered a vegetarian meal when I booked the flight roughly 1.5 months prior to my trip. However, when the meal was being served, there was only a chicken or pork option and my vegetarian meal had either not been properly booked or had been forgotten. When I informed the staff, I was asked to show proof that I ordered a veggie meal. I could not pull up my email confirmation as we were flying and there was no internet access. I had to lug my bag out of the overhead and search for a print out confirmation. I had not come prepared with the "evidence" the stewardess wanted. While the staff tried to be polite, I also found them to be quite rude, demanding that I produce evidence. Could they not have simply given me an extra salad without all the fuss? I felt I was being treated as a criminal for requesting a veggie meal that had, unfortunately, not been recorded in their system."
Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very helpful and the food great. The aircraft was strict on keeping time."
Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."
Cons: "The bed was uncomfortable, in that the arm rests disappear when you lay flat the bed. A petty thing since at least it was business class, but without taking pillows from empty seats it was uncomfortable when lying on one's side and nowhere to put arms."
Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."
Pros: "Cathay and JAL Provided excellent customer service throughout the the flight. Everyone did an excellent job and went out of their way to make sure I made flights and had what I needed."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, crew was exceedingly polite, helpful ground staff."
Cons: "Flight left a little bit late."
Pros: "Speeding of departure after boarding"

Cons: "Foods and beverages quality/variation"
Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t the best."
Pros: "Great experience overall."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight. It was a red-eye so I didn't sleep much. Maybe it was the airplane since I flew with ANA last year but with the 787. The difference is almost night and day."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Movies on board need upgrade"
Pros: "Staff Many empty seats"
Pros: "Crew tried to be friendly"
Cons: "Slow to depart after boarding on time, with an eventual delay of 1 hour (deplaning was extremely slow) before we reached the baggage claim area. The wait for baggage took another half hour"
Pros: "Typical ANA quality as always."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "I like the way the flight attendants treat the passengers. They are very courteous, friendly and wearing very sweet smiles.The airplane is very prompt when it comes to arrival and departure schedule. Thank you very much for providing me a wheelchair which made my travel more convenient."

Pros: "Staff were amazing."
Cons: "Nothing great experience!"
Pros: "Food and Sitting Space"
Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."

Pros: "Overall comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks like fruit juices were given in too small portions like a quarter cup by stewardess; as if the drinks were being saved or rationed Not much choice for movies. Movies were not well selected"
Pros: "Not crowded"
Pros: "This was my first time flying ANA (LAX to Haneda and back) and I have to admit it was surprisingly great. I am a pretty tall guy and found the room for my feet in economy to be more than adequate even though i found myself in a middle seat both flights. The flight attendants were extremely attentive, even as my flights were both overnight/red-eyes. The selection of movies available at each seat was pretty good and included your standard Hollywood stuff along with a decent selection of Japanese film, television, and various documentaries. Whether or not subtitles are available for non-Japanese speakers for Japanese language media was kind of hit and miss (I actually did browse around quite a bit), but I was impressed nonetheless. I would warn some western based travelers that they may not find the food to be all that appetizing. I chose the Japanese style option both flights (rice, miso, salad, fish), however I know that had I had any of my family members along for the flight they would have gone with the international option and they probably wouldn't have enjoyed it all that much."
Pros: "The staff is very nice."

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: "The plane was new and the seats recline quite a bit. The movie selection was solid (though disorganized)."
Cons: "The food service was a plastic bag of goodies (bag of chips, water bottle, toblerone, kit kat, pastry) - what?! The turbulence announcement was made once in english and japanese by the auto-plane service followed by the crew announcing it again in both English and Japanese. The same was done with the duty free. The plane pressure also felt very strong and cause discomfort for the wife. The movie selection was solid (but badly organized) and the TV show selection wasn't terrible. It should all be better. Come on ANA! Contact me for recommendations."
Pros: "Cabin crew provided great service!"
Pros: "Not overcrowded"
Cons: "Short flight, needed to purchase food"
Pros: "Very comfortable, and the crew was excellent."
Cons: "The international breakfast (Spanish Omelet) was mediocre. Poor movie selection – United has a much better and larger selection of movies."
Cons: "I booked my meal while booking my tickets, but still I didn't get the food. They told me that they don't have any information about my meal.. I paid so much money for tickets and they are saying they don't have meal . When I talked to ground staff about this they also said the same thing and when I asked them what about my next flight meals they said that will let me know at the the time of boarding that they can provide me with food or not. Hell it was so disgusting that you guys will tell me at the time of boarding that you are going to let me know whether you are going to give me food or not.. And they know that I am not alone I was traveling with my 5 year old son also. They are really hopeless. I am really disappointed"
Pros: "food and service"

Cons: "I got sick from the spaghetti dinner served 2 hrs before landing."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Seats extremely cramped especially when seat in front reclined. Will look for other airline on next trip due to this problem."
Pros: "Food and service always reliably good to excellent. If you're used to the North American style of "we are primarily here for your safety" service standard, then Asian airlines like EVA would be a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "Boarding time always seem to slip a few minutes lately."
Pros: "Self-service crackers, drinks."
Cons: "Self-selecting seat system is confusing and needs to be improved."
Pros: "EVA graciously accept a name correction to my ticket where most of my name was correct but the first name wasnt. A big help. Unlike travelling in and out of China. So, i appreciated this help. Flying out at 2 am and arriving Taipei at 5 am was a good time choice too. Service on board was good. Lots of refreshments served. Nice plates used for meals in economy."
Cons: "The only thing that was not the greatest, I think was the ground crew in Manila. It took an unusually long time to get my luggage."
Cons: "The departing flight from Taiwan was delayed so our arrival to jFK sa late."

Cons: "Economy seat space is tight but not different from other major airlines unless you pay extra for more leg space."
Cons: "The boarding gate for the flight was very far. It literally took us almost 30 min to actually get into the plane from the gate to the plane. We had to take shuttle bus from the boarding gate to the plane. That's not safe and energy consuming. The flights attendants are not helpful. Every asking for a cup of water or coffee they take their time to get it. Never offer creamer and sugar with cup of coffee. Not everyone drinks their coffee blacks"
Pros: "WiFi in flight is very useful for me long flight. Staffs every helpful at my requested."
Pros: "Very satisfied,"
Pros: "The staff are nice..."

Cons: "Don't understand why they would not give me airmail on my United Mileage Plus last time, and did not give me airmail from Toronto to Taipei this time, The trip from Hong Kong to Toronto is yet awaiting."
Cons: "Old 744 plane. One of the 3 remaining 744s. In flight entertainment has low resolution screen (but touch screen though). Crew service was average - below par for an Asian airline. Seats are not comfortable. No drinks were offered after meal service for such a long flight. Please learn from SIA."
Cons: "Long line at Taipei"
Pros: "Great service. Great team!"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Very small dated individual movie screen in front of me."
Cons: "My son & I traveled together on a trip from Manila to USA in Taipei. We had a 3 hour transit time, and waited by the gate of the flight from Taipei to USA. To exercise, I left the gate and walked around the terminal. Coming back to the gate, I could not enter because the ground stewardess blocked the entrance to the gate. I had to wait for 30 minutes until I finally was able to sneak thru the rope barrier that was placed there after the stewardess left. Then when I was confronted again, I explained my situation and this time she let me through to join my son, who was at the gate all this time."
Pros: "Large selection of free movies"
Pros: "The servise"

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: "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: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"

Pros: "Great entertanment system and nice complimentary drinks including liqour."
Cons: "Seats a little cramped in coach"
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"

Cons: "Got to Philly - no one there - rushed 2 concourses and plane still there with daughter on-board. They gave away our seats, told us we would not get on, would not get our baggage and would not get put up in a hotel. Because of the NBA draft - had to travel 60 miles to New Jersey for a hotel. Lost a day, lost 2 tours, endured additional hotel costs...and the attendant made it clear she was on overtime and we just needed to move on. American Airlines is too big and consolidation of airlines has not been good for the public."
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: "Delay of the flight for over 3 hours."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"

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: "Everything, crew, plane was clean, service was better than the previous international flight. Nont"
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."
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: "Itinerary did not mention the British ran through AA. It Mede me confused. Back and force between two check in desk."
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: "Pleasant crew; clean and generally comfortable"
Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
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: "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"
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: "The attendants could have been more hospitable"

Cons: "More a problem with Toronto Airport then Air Canada. However, the planes do not have enough room for comfort."
Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Excellent and diverse film selection. I broadened my horizons watching documentaries on hacking, gun running, and on an Afghan refugee teen in Iran, a film about a black American teen in Germany, and a French drama."
Cons: "Most of the time economy class is uncomfortable because of the lack of foot room. So this time, for the long flight from China, I chose an exit row precisely for the extra leg space. However, there is no footrest at all , which as you're surely aware, is terribly uncomfortable when sitting for long periods, let along trying to sleep. Furthermore, the exit row seats are not provided a substitute for missing the usual back-of-the-seat pocket with magazines ; that means no spot to place books/papers/trash for the entire flight. Finally, I am 5'2 and petite, and was seated between two fairly slim men, and yet we were still all squeezed side to side. I had no elbow rest. I actually rested my head on one man's shoulder, once he was asleep, and hope he didn't notice. While this is unfortunately typical of economy class, it is not decent."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I liked that is an all business carrier, the steward was personable and totally on charged. For a short flight it was excellent !!"

Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Service was good"
Pros: "The landing of the plane was good and one flight attendant was courteous. The movie options were pretty good. At least the wine was free."
Cons: "The check-in counter in DCA was AWFUL with only two people running and no kiosks working. They were rude and didn't listen to us either. When we got to the food part, it was disguisting. First of all, I am vegetarian but even if I ate meat, I wouldnt have eaten it. So I just ate bread for the 13 hour flight. Besides one flight attendant, the rest were rude, harsh and had a generally bad attitude. AIr Canada has BY FAR been the worst travel experience for me thus far. I guess you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Lost my bag, I had to wait an hour and a half and missed a meeting."
Pros: "I thought that things ran very smooth and efficientlt"
Pros: "The fast boaring"
Cons: "The 3hr delay. Not many announcements. No one at the gate/desk. Had to be in a crowded gate area with no choice."
Pros: "Just about everything. And to top it all off, I found that the air inside the cabin was very good and so I arrived after 14 hours on board without red eyes and a headache"
Cons: "Although the air planes are newer, the seats are uncomfortably smaller which makes long distance flights very unpleasant."
Pros: "No protection from noise. Gave up watching movies."

Cons: "had to circle for about an hour before we were able to land due to a storm but that wasn't the crews fault - just bad luck"

Pros: "Movies were great."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for a window or an aisle seat."
Pros: "Free snack"
Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"
Pros: "On both legs of our flight to and from O'Hare to China, we had delays. The first was due to an ice storm in Toronto, where we changed planes, then the second due to compromised air space over the China Sea that Air Canada wisely chose to delay our flight rather than take a risk. The delays were handled professionally and pleasantly. It wasn't their fault. The agents and flight attendants were very attentive in trying to help us get our connecting flights, such as switching us to the front of the plane before landing so we could get off quickly. Alas, it didn't work, but they tried. Our checked bags came off quickly. I felt that we had more legroom on our AC flights than I have had recently on American aircrafts. Temperature was comfortable. We were regularly given water, drinks, and we had complementary meals with beer or wine. Food was pretty average, but the beverages were good. I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Food was just okay."
Cons: "Very crowded, small seating and legroom"
Cons: "Over 1 hour waiting on phone and disconnected. Terrible. Check-in people didn't even say one single word of apology. they suggested call Air Canada."
Cons: "They kept us in the airplane 3 hours before"
Pros: "A very quick trip and the aircraft wasn't crowded at all. Very nice trip."
Cons: "Boarding in Shanghai was very unorganized. Business class passengers were mixed in with economy class when boarding!"

Cons: "Me and my wife lost our luggage help us please"

Pros: "All in all, everything was very good. But the service was great. I is very nice to be treated as customers v cattle."
