Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I loved the entire experience. This flight was my second trip with Cathay Pacific and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Seats were clean and comfortable. They had decent leg room and great range of motion. The entertainment center was simple but sleek. I loved the extensive movie library. Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed but the crew did keep us updated and was systematic in boarding"
Cons: "Shopping items available."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50pm and it didn't take off until midnight. The many delays appeared poorly handled and communicated, and I spent an hour on the runway before takeoff."
Cons: "Customer service from the cathy pacific crew are not good at all.. I flight business to and from asia to the USA at least 3-4 times a year.. cathy pacific was such a disappointment.."
Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."
Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."
Pros: "No extra fees for baggage and professional flight attendants."
Cons: "Seats were too close in economy as in most airplanes."
Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "Not sure why we left and arrived so late, but it was annoying to miss the last flight out of Vancouver to my destination and have to find a hotel and stay the night. I guess lesson learned on expecting flights to always be on schedule. Sometimes things happen and they’re not."
Pros: "The crew is amazing. Particularly the FA in our section was amazing."
Cons: "No outlet charging for smartphone. Only USB charging was available."
Cons: "My seat would not recline."
Pros: "the flight itself was fine. the crew is professional"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and 4 days later I still don't have it. They are not being very helpful at all in recovering it or taking responsibility for it"
Pros: "Seat and legroom ok. Seats are on the narrow side if you have a large person beside you. Supper was excellent. Breakfast so so."
Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Seat space really cramped"
Cons: "On my return flight from Hing Kong to Vancouver, which is a long flight, the passenger in the seay next to mine slowly encroached on my seat space to an unusual extent. The seats in economy are really cramped!!"

Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."
Pros: "The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with."

Pros: "Excellent service for wheelchair passengers"
Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hours"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Very quiet (A350), good crew who helped direct those unused to flying to the correct class. Good seat comfort and food, very good good entertainment. Toilets were cleaned periodically during the flight."

Pros: "Nice plane, roomy seats, good food. Much better than other carriers in economy."
Pros: "Easy boarding, good entertainment. Great crew."
Cons: "Long flight to easy to complain about something. But really no problems here"

Pros: "They were able to provide drinks and food at a timely matter"
Cons: "The long flight"
Pros: "First time ever taking a roundtrip across the country with this airline and I am ~TO THE MOON~ excited over my experience. Comfortable seats, excellent food, excellent service, excellent movie choices on board. I can't wait to continually book with this airline on every flight I take across the country!"
Pros: "Smooth, delay-free travel from take-off to (smooth) landing on the tarmac! The pilot has some skill to make it like a gliding landing without bumps!"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific does not participate in TSA PreCheck."
Cons: "I did not like paying more than the advertised price for my airline ticket... Straight after clicking the confirmation button , I received a call and was informed that the advertised price had increased by $50. It was still affordable so I agreed to this extra charge. Even after 24hours had past, the flight price had not changed online. I was lied to!"
Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"
Cons: "late boarding."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Professional, cheerful, willing to help. from take off till landing"
Cons: "Seating was atrocious. I specifically asked whether I could get an exit row seat (i am 6'4"). I was even willing to pay the extra 200$ for my partner and myself. I was told that there were no open exit row seats. But on boarding, the entire exit row was empty. It stayed that way through the flight. Super annoying."
Pros: "entertainment was more than sufficient and was adequately nourished for a long flight"
Cons: "full flight which felt more crowded than Cathay flights I've taken in the past"
Cons: "Though nothing completely egregious, my interaction with crew on the flight were the worst I have ever experienced when traveling. The first was after attempting to go to the bathroom mid-flight. This was an 11 hour flight. I'm not sure whether the captain forgot to turn off the seatbelt sign during the middle of the flight or if he anticipated turbulence, but the seatbelt sign was on for at a minimum, 45 minutes. After waking up I had the urge to go to the bathroom and walked back to try to get there. Once close to the bathroom a flight attending pointed in the other direction and said "sit down and put your seatbelt on." I expressed that I had to go to the bathroom and he again just repeated "go put your seatbelt on." I stood for another few seconds in disbelief that I would really be turned away from using the bathroom in the middle of a flight and during this short time of standing there he again repeated: "go put your seatbelt on." I would like to stress that there was absolutely no turbulence at this time. Whether or not this is protocol and any attendant would have told me the same, the attendant could use lessons in how to properly speak to people by having a better tone AND saying please. Explaining the situation would also be helpful instead of just using your power to command another adult to do something. After returning to my seat, I saw multiple other people also try to get up to go, who received the same fate, so it was obvious he was trying to adhere to the rules, but clearly if the fasten seatbelt sign has been on for over an hour at that point, you should be able to be an adult and put the situation in context; people need to use the bathroom on a long flight. My second poor interaction was at the conclusion of the flight. I was listening to music on my phone and hadn't heard the captain announcement that we should begin to prepare for landing. On ANY other flight I have EVER been on, the crew will come around and verbally ask people politely to put their seat up, return trays to their stored position, and unplug any USB electronics. One of the crew, without asking me first or even making eye contact, came up and unplugged my phone from being plugged in and manually put my seat up to upright position and walked away. This might seem like a simple thing, but you should NEVER touch someone else's property. Further, to place me upright without warning was extremely rude. If this flight had been the only flight I had with Cathay Pacific, I would never fly with this airline again, because it would have seemed to me that your crew lack social skills, are impolite, and may have language barriers. Luckily, my trip was round trip from NY to Bali and as such there were multiple connecting flights, and I had good experiences on all the rest. I really wish I had gotten the name of the 2 individuals I had a poor experience with, as I don't think they will help you in securing future customers."
Pros: "Crew was cordial."
Cons: "Again, would it be possible to have more Christian-friendly movies?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and the entertainment was great"
Cons: "The other guests were loud and rude on the flight and none of the staff seemed to care."
Pros: "The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay"
Pros: "They are nice, let space, shopping options unpaired. Cathay attendants, are they trained to be as nice or are they born like that in Hong Kong?"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "I love the hot meal they serve."
Pros: "Good service. Love that you can have wine with dinner! Good size blankets provided."
Cons: "They called us to board early and then we stood there for about 10 minutes before they actually started letting people through the gates."
Pros: "We travel quite a bit and use different airlines. Actually we had never heard of Cathay Pacific but loved the whole experience. The aircraft was CLEAN, the people were so friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased-also it was price friendly."
Cons: "The seatbelt buckle is at a weird angle so ones arm is on it."
Pros: "Nice service!"
Pros: "Great staff. Very friendly and helpful for those in need :) i wasn't in need but I've watched them help passengers every flight I've taken with Cathay pacific"
Pros: "Liked the added legroom and seating of ecomomy preferred."
Pros: "Service, Food, and every aspect of the flight was the best I've experienced in a long time."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say at all."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"

Pros: "Requested for a aisle seat. Done without any issue. Very good food."
Cons: "Airport in Istanbul"
Pros: "Courteous and helpful crew"
Cons: "My seat was broken. Entertainment system was non responsige and expressly slow. Couldn’t hear anything from the earphones."
Cons: "Connection flight from plane to the gate,seats need to be updated"
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding on time, leaving and arriving on time, well maintained planes, clean."
Cons: "Seats on this flight were even smaller than the previous. It almost feels that these seats were designed for little kids."
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"
Pros: "Efficient cabin crew"
Cons: "Waiting to board 20 minutes after sign flashed “boarding”"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Pros: "New airplane good service good flight attendant depart on time"
Pros: "The seats are not as luxurious as the international. They do not recline that much and are not pods. No surprise as that is similar to the US. But it was only a 3 hour flight so was fine. Food was same as first trip, solid.. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours. They did not communicate at all the reason. Takeoff was supposed to be 8.30pm, didn’t take off until 11pm. Sat on the tarmac for over an hour and the crew or pilot did not say a word. The beverage service again was lacking compared to other international business class flights I’ve taken."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Transfer desk in Istanbul is terrible. Poor customer service. It took 6 hours to get transferred from the airport to the hotel."
Pros: "The seats have ex space"
Cons: "Counter check in had me take some close off my bags for over weight even I’m allowed to carry two Luggage and. I had one only"
Pros: "Good service and in flight entertainment; excellent prices on tickets."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process Scheduled departure time should be earlier; otherwise, long wait at airport."
Pros: "First Airline to harass me about the weight on my bag -- small carry on -- had to check kill me on time. The seats have no legroom -- my back is killing me. The internet could not take my money -- so I could not get'out crucial emails -- it seems like the service was more interested in collecting my email addresses and password -- instead to simply directing me to the payment method -- waste of time."
Cons: "Just about everything"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent meals, comfortable seating"
Cons: "Istanbul airport- needs major refurbishment"
Cons: "We had to spend the night in Istanbul and get only on the next flight the following morning. TK airport (ground) staff that talked to us was antipathetic and it took ages to get any service. Looks like they didn't care we about the delay, nor they were trying to help us. Just kept saying we need to wait."
Pros: "One of the best airlines. The Boring team in Cluj was really pleasant and courteous"
Cons: "No subtitles in foreign languages"
Pros: "Not enought time for transit between two flights"
Cons: "Two out of three sutecases did not arrive."
Pros: "Great food! Also, the selection of movies and TV and other entertainment choices was wide. Seats weren't bad for an overnight flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "the plane was nice"
Cons: "the timing was so bad"
Pros: "The courtesy to all the passengers was great"
Cons: "14 hours on the flight that's pretty much it you can't help that from the distance I had to go"
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Not a lot of legs space"
Pros: "Information was given on time regarding schedule. The flight itself was good, and in flight crew were attentive and provided you with enough attention"
Cons: "food could be a bit better. Scrambled eggs were too undercooked and the kofte was very dry."
Pros: "A light meal."
Cons: "Very crowded -- good for the company. Delay in taking off."
Pros: "The food, prices and extras were outstanding"
Cons: "The crew orders you around like a high school Political Science teacher; bossy, ride with an attitude"
Pros: "Business class did have their own line."
Cons: "It did not matter where you were on the flight, last row or business class, you all boarded at once. It was a big free for all. And usually business class is given a given special treatment as soon as they are seated but it was not the case. The short flights are not worth the price of the business class."
Cons: "the delay in the departure"
Pros: "My flight was full of refugees and everybody I met was humble kind, interested, and fleeing a war zone. We should keep progressive Immigration policy to make sure that people like the people on my flight are able to restart their lives in the US safely and without hassle."
Cons: "I'd like to have more water served. Planes are so dehydrating!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight to Istanbul but on the return flight they told me at the exit door of the plane that my stroller for the kids will be in baggage claim. The stroller was. It in baggage claim, the Turkish airline representative could not help or prove de a phone number for me to contact somebody indicating although she has the Turkish airlines uniform she works for swissport. 90 minutes later they said they might send the stroller to my house if found and that I may have to cover the cost as Turkish airlines will not....... terrible service terrible experience and I will never fly with Turkish airlines again"
Pros: "Flight delayed so was my luggage for more than a week."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "I love how Turkish Airlines is such a pleasant flying experience and how everything is included in the price. Delicious meals that are better than going to a restaurant, the head rests that bend in so you can sleep with or without a neck pillow (I had absent-mindedly packed my pillow in my baggage and was delighted to discover these), the little pouch of goodies (socks, slippers, toothbrush and toothpaste, eyemask, lip balm, ear plugs), and the pleasantness of the crew are all highlights for me. And I was delighted by the magical flight safety video! Thank you also for passing out little sweets on New Year's - that was such a lovely touch and appreciated. Everyone who has flown Turkish agrees it's the best!"
Pros: "Everything worked well. Service, food, entertainment, et all."
Cons: "nothing was amiss."
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew and their willingness to serve"
Cons: "Boarding process at Istanbul and aircraft maintenance"
Pros: "Because it was my first time on Turkish Airlines I was a bit apprehensive but the experience was very positive. The crew was friendly, the service good, the food very good and the entertainment excellent. All my flights left on time and arrive on time or earlier. The airplane, an Airbus 300, was new and comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process at Istanbul was a bit chaotic but the flight left on time. I guess the airport personnel knew what they were doing. Istanbul airport is big and modern. There a lot of nice shops, including Duty Free. One annoying thing was the large number of airport employees using these motorized transports, I.e. wheelchairs, bipeds, tricycles, etc, going at high speed. If you don't get out of their way they will run you over!"
Pros: "Entertainment center was great, also food was very good."
Cons: "In a 12 hour flight, it would be good to have a small snack between the 2 meals. The crew should improve their English level, specially when flying on a flight to the US."
Pros: "Service Good Clean On time"
Cons: "Price is high"
Cons: "The aircraft wasn't properly cleaned prior. The seat pocket was filled with garbage."
Pros: "Everything was perfect during the flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 week for the money to be unblocked which affected my vacation"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "We flew during the first week of the Atlanta to Istanbul flight on Turkish airlines. The plane is new, seats were comfortable and in flight service meals were tasty. Good selection of food and alcohol. Also, new movies and good selection of top rated movies to keep us entertained for this 10 hour or so flight."
Cons: "Staff wasn't all that friendly. My husband and I fly all the time on domestic and international airlines ( American, Delta, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, etc). The flight attendants just do not seem happy at all. They hustle around and speak to passengers in a very brisk and cold manner. Customer service training is warranted if they truly want to be a best in class global airline."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, once I paid for it a second time!"
Cons: "We missed a connection on our flight out, so the airline decided to cancel our entire flight home! They didn't even notify us they were cancelling it. We found out the day before we were supposed to leave to go home, when we tried to check in online and couldn't. I spent hours of the last day of our vacation trying to figure out what was wrong, then searching for a rebooking a new flight. It cost us more than $1000 USD extra, just to get home. NOT the way we envisioned ending our vacation. I'll never use this airline again!"
Pros: "Everything about the process was easy. We were updated throughout via email of our gate and baggage claim number. I was also very impressed with Turkish Airlines. We had a great experience."
Pros: "Everything is high quality but the airplane interior. It's in need of some updating."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Best movie selection, best food. They even came around with pieces of Turkish delight right after we took off. Turkish Air makes it worth flying through Istanbul to get to western Europe!!"
Cons: "Adding cookies and drinks to relieve hunger or low blood sugar of passengers."
Pros: "Food & drinks"
Cons: "more sauce in food selection."
Cons: "Let’s passenger choice the seats with time"
Cons: "Delay in arrival caused us to miss this connection"
Pros: "i didnt like when we had to come out of plane and do a transit."
Cons: "wish it was non stop but now it is."
Pros: "The most unorganized airline"
Cons: "Better staff and communication."
Pros: "Theno del crew were polite and cheerful, efficient in their work. Seats are okay, more legroom would be better."
Cons: "no delays on schedules."
Pros: "not much."
Cons: "lousy entertainment system, old plane, food mediocre, kept the plane freezing cold, check in process a gong show."
Pros: "free wifi."
Pros: "Great service and so much leg room"
Pros: "During mid flight, I called an attendant to ask for water and she arrived with one already without asking for it. She is nice and prompt."
Cons: "BUSINESS CLASS - After watching a YouTube video about PAL business class, my wife and I got sold to the idea of upgrading. We tried to do so on online check-in but the system wouldn’t allow us to change our seats. So we tried to buy the upgrade upon our baggage check-in but the attendant told us that we couldn’t for it is fully booked. We even tried to buy an upgrade to premium economy but was given the same answer. We told the attendant that it’s okay and thank you for checking. But as we were boarding, 3 people in front of us got upgraded to business class for free. This was very upsetting as there was no reason nor any explanation given to us. HOLDING GATE - On top of the above mentioned are the unorganized boarding. We were asked to scan our bags and our passports/boarding pass checked just to be at the gate. At the gate “holding area”, we couldn’t have water and there are no washrooms. If we wanted to have water or go to the washroom, we’d have to go out of the holding area and line-up and get scanned and our documents checked again. Mind you, this process was done already before entering the boarding area. PAL just redundantly did it at the gates. And there’s not enough seats for the waiting passengers at the gate. I saw people sitting down on the floor waiting for boarding. MABUHAY LOUNGE - My wife and I inquired about if we could buy access to the lounge but was declined. The reason given to us is that the lounge is only for business class flyers. There are no other lounge area in the Terminal 2. FOOD CHOICES - There are not a lot of food choices in Terminal 2. They have some for snacking but if you’re waiting or flight gets delayed, there’s a big chance that you’d end up eating the same food again. WILL I FLY PAL AGAIN? - My wife and I are frequent flyers. With all these reasons, until PAL get it together and do things the right way, we would not recommend nor fly PAL. Flight PR116 MNL-YVR July 22, 2018"
Pros: "I was seated in row 38 and our flight attendant was very attentive, helpful and always smiling. I think she was the the best flight attendant that I had for a long time, she’s always ready to help to needy passengers and always has a smile on her face."
Pros: "foods and crew were very courteous"
Pros: "The best flight crew and customer service was provided."
Cons: "my seat was broken and would not lock in a either upright or reclined position"
Cons: "The people at the boarding counter weren’t helpful and not willing to help with my questions."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "REad above"
Cons: "Delay boarding at jfk"
Pros: "The direct flight, without stop overs was nice. The crew was well mannered and attentive. The flight was on time."
Cons: "My seat as well as the passenger beside mine would not stay reclined. Neither of them would lock in place. Passenger's USB didn't work neither. Despite handing everyone a menu, there was no choice of meal for breakfast because they ran out of the Filipino food. There was inedible sausage."
Pros: "Food was warmed to my liking. Crew were professional - but a bit too rigid. I was seated with a guy that was coughing all the entire 16 hours flight and I requested to be seated somewhere else but attendant simply said they can't do anything. I asked if they can ask someone a bit younger and fit to change seat with me but crew never got back to me. In fairness, they said they'll try."
Cons: "Seat covers were musty and smells old - they need to change those! Flight got delayed for almost one hour while trying to dock because there was no assigned hangar station for the plane! How can an international airline company allow themselves to be treated like that? The crew looked overworked - what are these airline companies doing to these young professionals - treat them like slaves? I'm not surprised - that's the Philippines companies ways - pay them just enough so they can come back the next time to work."
Pros: "food when it finally arrived"
Cons: "waiting in plane 4 hours with no updates on status"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2+ hours, not getting in Vancouver until after 5am. Everyone on the flight, passengers and staff were extremely rude. Never taking this airline again!! Also, there was no food left by the time the served me near the end of the plane."
Pros: "I like the direct flight to Vancouver"
Cons: "I checked in early and was given a middle seat. I have back problems and walk with a cane and asked at the check in desk if I could have a window or aisle. I was told no because the flight was completely booked. I arrived three hours early and checked in online so I could get a better seat and they still said no. No one was able to help me. The flight was delayed over an hour and there was no apology. I always fly Philippine Airlines because IV always been really pleased with the service. This past flight makes me question that decision going forward."
Cons: "seats is too tight/noarow"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Extremely good service compared to North American carriers. Only thing that went wrong was we left early and landed an hour early and our gate wasn't ready yet :)"
Pros: "organized departure / arrival aircraft cleanliness pleasant staff great food & entertainment / free alcohol great leg room"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "huge delay"
Pros: "What? Free check-in for one bag? Free full meal?? Thank you!!!"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed the boarding process was very smooth. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Long check in lines even though we checked in online. Flight delay."
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance was very good"
Cons: "Entertainment equipment on board is outdated"
Pros: "YOU NEED TO ADVISE PASSENGERS TO BRING WARM CLOTHING BECAUSE THE PLANE WAS VERY COLD DURING FLIGHT. I NEEDED TWO BLANKETS"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "It's a 6.5 hour international flight so I was expecting a meal to be served, not those underwelming snack box/wrap options to be available for purchase. Also, no blanquet and pillow."
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Cons: "First of all, both on my departure and return flight, despite having boarded 30 minutes ahead of schedule, we remained on the floor for an additional hour (both for taking and after landing). Next, the flight attendants did a poor job of ensuring that everyone did not get up when we landed and the seatbelt sign was on, and this led to herds of people running through the aisles and rushing to get off past those that were patiently waiting. The leg room is very limited, unless it is an empty flight. The red wine was perhaps the worst I have ever had. AND the wifi that was available for purchase was 40 USD for only 150 mb of data which is absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "our flight was pretty delayed due to another delayed flight from the night before, in which they decided to combine half the passengers in to our flight. They also did not communicate this effectively and check in was horrible."
Pros: "Philippine airlines was a great airline to travel with, with friendly staff good food comfortable seats and lots of entertainment options for the flight there and back will definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Good flight with excellent Serb=vice form the crew"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment US for one whole sections of the aircraft. The aircraft looked tired the table fittingwas broken ,"
Pros: "We got 2 food vouchers one at night, the other early in the morning. However the food establishment was so pricy a chocolate bar was $7 USD."
Cons: "13 hour delay, would not let us go home, would not cancel the flight, instead pushed the boarding time back one hour every hour starting at 4am. Flight was supposed to leave JFK by 11:55pm, we left at 1pm the following day. It wasn't solely due to the weather (we expected a slight delay), but in the morning, plenty of other flights were running regularly, while there were no updates. No one that cared, all the staff just told us it wasn't their fault. (Which is true to an extent), but all so mentioned that they were tired too, and they're exhausted too, which made many people angrier. They deflected a lot of statements."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by a really long time. They should have sent people to hotels or cancelled flight. Delay too long (especially for elderly and children)"
Cons: "There was confusion and poor organization at the check in counter. The check in started late and there was a 500 ft line up to check in at Philippine Airlines. We waited 2 hours in the plane for 4 people who were late for the flight, then the cargo handlers didn't show up. We left at 5am instead of 3am. The flight attendants didn't seem to know why we weren't leaving. Two short announcements were made in 2 hours that didn't explain properly why we sat there so long. The food was wretched. The flight attendants were pleasant but the captain and the purser's announcements were hard to understand with poor English."
Pros: "Great service and wifi on board!!!!"
Cons: "Didn't get my bags onto the connecting flight"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the service give by PAL. Good meals, good utensils, and blanket and pillow provided to each passenger as well as current tv shows and movies on the entertainment system for free."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the plane seemed dated and didn't work so that was a bummer. The attendants offered to move me to a another spot, but couldn't due to it being a full flight. Also the plane was two hours delayed leaving."
Pros: "Smiling crew members"
Pros: "the flight is an hour in advance!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, though I wish they were given more information on boarding time due to the late arrival of the plane. The flight was half empty, so there was plenty of room to stretch out."
Cons: "The food was abysmal. I chose the beef option — a small lump of "beef" that was overcooked and under sauced, accompanied by a sad pied of steamed broccoli and a disproportionately large portion of white rice. The quinoa salad was passable, but the "peach cobbler" dessert course was a flavorless mass of gelatinous goo."
Pros: "1st time to fly, the flight was good experience, the preflight delay was not good."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 2 hours before takeoff"
Cons: "The food was disgusting The flight was delayed by 4 1/2 hours however there was no information given the ought the delay"
Cons: "Significant delays"
Pros: "Nothing actually"
Cons: "Terrible boarding procedures, plane was way too big for the gate assigned. Had to wait on the tarmac for a ‘starter’? For about 20-30 after a after boarding finished."
Pros: "Nice plane, good food"
Pros: "Again staff at mobility assistance were excellent! We were late leaving and pilot made uptime.They really seemed to care about passengers"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cleanliness Pockets in seat all in disarray with crumpled dirty pamphlets and magazines. Felt unsanitary"
Cons: "When allotting seats to seniors, BA could have been more considerate and not placed them in middle seats"

Cons: "I had to pay for the luggage. I thought it was included."
Pros: "I really like this airline"
Cons: "The crew were all very nice"
Pros: "Boarding was relatively efficient, the food was decent although breakfast was a modest chicken sandwich, and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "Breakfast, a chicken salad sandwich in plastic and a cookie, was not my favorite thing to face in the morning after a long transatlantic flight."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, professional and personal. Had a great seat with extra leg room and the washrooms were always clean. The staff were generous and prompt with the food and beverages and very accommodating."
Cons: "It was a long haul flight so the seat got a little uncomfortable near the end."
Pros: "BA is reliable in many respects. 1- Timely 2- Friendly staff 3- Decent food served in a timely manner 4- In a BA flight, you know exactly what you get"
Cons: "The airlines are pushing people to upgrade with those ever shrinking seats. I had a slightly above average size gentleman seated next to me and the seat was so tight he had to totally take over the shared arm rest and our shoulders were rubbing most of the time. That's not a way to spend 9+ hours"
Cons: "One should not have to pay for a drink on that flight. it is too long. If it were less than an hour, I would understand."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great food and service. Very quiet and smooth ride on the upper deck of an A380."
Cons: "Worst issue was the noisy baby at the front of the cabin - no airline seems to have a good solution to this problem!"
Pros: "Crew are really the highlight. Food and seats are good in business class."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Passengers were bunched up outside the departure lounge - not sure if there were lines or not. Got sorted when we got into the lounge."
Pros: "Short flight - it was fine"
Cons: "All fine for short flight"
Pros: "Good staff and food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Cons: "Service was incredibly slow Seats were tight No USB port or charger Tiny entertainment screens Forced to check laptop despite this not being a standard with any other airline for the same route"
Pros: "Fast Boarding. Easy Airport"
Cons: "Very Rude & Disrespectful Crew"
Pros: "Crew and staff friendly and helpful"
Cons: "My sear was broken and couldn't recline on a 10 hour trip. They tried to fix it but couldn't.."
Pros: "The seats assigned."
Cons: "Service is awful, last time I or my family using ba"
Pros: "Everything was smooth. crew was courteous. Flight was plesant"
Pros: "The quality of food let it down but crew cheerful and helpful throughout the flight!"
Cons: "Not good enough to let back of plane consistently have no choice of food because it has run out. Maybe alternate end of plane you start service to avoid this happening."
Pros: "aer lingus was good"
Cons: "After technical issues, our flight got delayed over 2 hrs. and many passengers missed international connections. BA handled the rescheduling very poorly. They did not offer any compensation and during the delayed flight, they did not even offer us water for free - just as a curtesy. Overall I see this as incapablity and very poor treatment of passengers."
Pros: "See my notes on the Chicago London leg."
Cons: "Same as the likes..."
Pros: "i love wverything"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely friendly and helpful and really made the trip enjoyable I also liked all the activities that very offered some screens in the seats in front of us ."
Cons: "The pilot made a rude comment about the American security agents that I thought was uncalled for. They may not agree with how Americans do their security but for the pilot to make a comment in a negative connotation regarding the Americans and how they run their security before we left London was really inappropriate and I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Because of the cabin crew strike the old biddies pushing the trolleys were smart enough to give the passengers double the quota of wine to keep us quiet so we didn't mind the slow food service. I had an excellent flight sleeping thru half of it."
Cons: "The audio provided by the ear buds provided produced very poor results, probably causes long term hearing loss."
Pros: "Flight there was ok."
Cons: "British Airways customer service was terrible. Flight was delayed. We called BA and they told to us to arrive at the later flight and find our connection in London. This was not the right thing to do and we are still not home. We are now stuck in DC, have no clue where our luggage is. BA has provided no information. Not sure why they even have a call line."
Pros: "Movies Food Wine"
Pros: "Plane had a bit more legroom than others I've been on recently. That was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Cons: "air stewardess was very rude unecessarily"
Pros: "Comfortable. Great flight attendants"
Pros: "British Airways offered me a direct flight from Dublin to Philadelphia on their sister carrier American Airlines."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Did not have wifi or live TV"
Cons: "No breakfast. Crew skipped few rows for drinks. Toilets were broken."
Cons: "The entertainment system was not working, the crews members was rude/ did not respond to questions/needs."
Pros: "The ground crew at checkin were friendly."
Cons: "The old aircraft that looked like it had seen better days. The old entertainment system that was jittery and crashed."
Pros: "Great crew good service, except a little unorganized at the gate. Best service I've gotten compared to other airlines I've experienced."
Cons: "Food was a little cold. Sitting in the middle of the row is the worst most uncomfortable in economy."
Pros: "I was seated on the upper deck of a 747 (63K) and had plenty of room. The cabin was quiet even though the plane was full. Service was excellent. I enjoyed the food. Cabin crew were great."
Cons: "The entertainment system was old and didn't have the selection of programs available on newer aircraft. Flight map was not at all detailed. Time for an upgrade BA! Boarding was a bit of mess. BA has so many different categories of who gets to board first that it got to be very confusing. People couldn't understand if it was their turn or not and people kept being turned away to wait their turn. It would be far easier if people were given a number from 1-5 like Air Canada and they call those numbers which are also printed on your boarding pass. I was flying business class and I think it a terrible cheek that they charge extra (in my case $129-$159 EACH WAY) to select your seat in advance. That's insane considering what I have already spent on the business class ticket. Seems like a money grab to me. I usually fly Air Canada, and this high extra charge will probably make me think twice about flying BA in the future."
Cons: "The low resolution screens and limited programming compared to other airlines and aircraft"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "Not much space for a long flight."
Pros: "The food was good and free."
Cons: "I bought a ticket from British airlines but the first leg of the trip was with Vueling. The online check in at British Airlines sent me to Vueling but I couldn't check in with British. We had to stand in line at Vueling to check our bags and then with British Airlines to get Get the boarding passes for the other two legs of our our trip. The bags didn't make the switch. British Airlines found our bags in 2 days but 5 days later that's a week later the web check of our file says bags ready for Delivery and call help line can not talk to the airport to find out the problem."
Pros: "even better!"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Because it was short flight there was no food so I can't judge on the food"
Pros: "Everyone and everything was outstanding! Completely opposite of every experience I've ever had with Air Canada! They finally get it! Treated us like we were people and valued customers! Amazing!"
Cons: "Flight re booked"
Pros: "crews nice and efficient"
Cons: "no entrrtainment, Video"
Pros: "Nice plane and crew."
Cons: "Entertainment choices limited compared to the past. Very few recent releases (they now have "new to Air Canada" releases and they can be decades old"
Pros: "They had vegan options if you called ahead which was a nice and the flight crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "There was not enough space unless you sat in the front row."
Cons: "Poor Customer service! My baggage arrived later on the same day I had arrived..., but I didnlt get it till 2 days later. There were or apology or announcement about the reason of my flight delay (2 hrs). I was told by a customer rep on the phone a few days before ny flight that I didn't need eTA to transit, but I needed it! I had to obtain it at the airport counter on the day of my flight.. I was very close to miss my flight.... Due to the delay, many customers missed connection flights, but there was no clear guidance to where to take care of the matter... I was ery disappointed.."
Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."
Pros: "I love the new Boeing 787 planes! This was the smoothest flight ever, both from Vancouver to Tokyo and back again. The new planes have the dimmable windows, which are so cool! And, each seat has it's own screen with free movies, TV, flight info, etc. Also, the flights were on time!"
Pros: "One of the most spacious flight experiences I've ever had, enough room to stretch out for my 6 foot self. My checked luggage arrived safe and sound when I landed in Vancouver."
Cons: "On my 5 hour flight from Toronto the air Canada rouge website wouldn't work on my laptop despite troubleshooting many times. I was connected to the wifi... but didn't gain access to the website. I would've liked to eat on the plane but having to pay $7+ for a sandwich alone isn't something I'm interested in. It would be nice to at least get a free snack while flying across Canada. Oh well, I guess I'll starve."
Pros: "Food and cocktails included alongwith entertainment"
Cons: "Hour late .. departure delayed ..pilots caught in traffic"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Inexpensive flight, good connections, decent food, and professional and friendly flight attendants and service."

Pros: "Helpful and considerate staff when my friend was sick"
Cons: "The delays to leaving the airplane port."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very economical; bland minimal food; no complimentary wine. Flew with Air NZ to auckland in April; food and wine offered throughout flight. Flight attendants didn't smile or engage with passengers; treated service like a job they had to do"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delayed, did not leave Vancouver until after we were supposed to land in Portland. No tv or wifi"
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Dallas due to crew members arrived late."
Pros: "Business Class on the Dreamliner 787 was a great experience. The flight crew was great. Everything at Pearson and at YVR went smoothly today."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "My bag was delayed and I end up paying to buy a pant from sports chek and now when I am trying to connect with Air Canada flight to make a claim, they are not even responding to my request."
Cons: "We had a 5 hour delayed flight. We received no notification that our flight would be delayed so we were stuck waiting on the airport for 5 hours, which forced us to cancel evening plans with friends that night because the flight landed in Vancouver at 3am the next morning and we didn't get to our Airbnb until around 4-5am. The crew seemed disorganized."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for several hours, while the crew assured us it was on the way. When it landed they still said it was being prepped. Then at 10pm or so, they said it was cancelled. Then we waited another hour and a half to speak to representatives and get our hotels. Then another hour to the hotel to go to sleep. Because I had to be back at the airport in 7 hours to catch the next flight. It would have taken me 2 hours to drive to Seattle from Vancouver."
Pros: "Wonderful staff and service! I was very comfortable on the larger airplane so I didn't feel anxious. Excellent ratings on everything for Air Canada!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "Overall service & friendliness"
Pros: "Flight was good, decent food and drink"
Cons: "the delay caused ua to miss connection and had to be rebooked"
Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"
Cons: "I only had one gripe about this flight and my one other flight on Air Canada Rouge; the overhead bins are very poorly designed. I purchased a carry on bag specifically to meet their regs, yet it had it go in the bin longways, taking up a ton of room. The bins are tall, which is wasted space, when what they really need is another 1-2" in depth."
Pros: "Inexpensive, got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "All food and headphones cost extra on a 6 hour international flight."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "nice lie flat beds."
Cons: "it was all good."
Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."
Pros: "The staff and service were excellent!"
Pros: "Treated well and basically enjoyable flight, which is saying something on an eleven hour flight."
Cons: "On the return flight we arrived an hour late, and though we were told that they were holding our connecting flight, it left on time, five minutes before we got to the gate."
Cons: "Food was purchase only."
Cons: "One of my three flights was unnecessarily delayed by two hours, enough that I missed my last connection and had to stay overnight in Vancouver. There were no technical complications or weather complications. It was simply because something had been misscheduled and the flight crew needed a longer rest time between flights. This is completely avoidable, and the attendent who checked me in even said so. While the hotel and shuttle were paid for, Air Canada only gave me a $7 breakfast voucher, which was only redeemable at the hotel's measly breakfast counter rather than anywhere in the airport. For the unnecessary delays I had to deal with, i should had received more credit. This was an utterly disappointing travel experience."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. Entertainment system was also mediocre which keep shutting down and have to again select your movie and forward it :("
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "Once again, they were late which meant that we missed our connection in Vancouver and had to overnight there."
Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."
Pros: "Everything was solid."
Cons: "There was no WI-FI which was inconvenient. The crew was good...could have been nicer on the way from Newark to Vancouver."
Cons: "Poor entertainment selection for such a long flight. Very little food for Sydney/ Vancouver leg and I am small eater."
Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Cons: "I was NEVER TOLD I would need a transit visa to fly through Canada. I was denied boarding in Entebbe by British Air and had to rebook and pay for another flight on a different airline that didn't fly through Canada. Who has another $1,700 in their pocket to cover such expense? A terrible financial hardship. I will NEVER use Kayak again to book travel."
Pros: "Free TV."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Guy behind me was loud and kept kicking/pushing my seat."
Cons: "your app is useless because it didn't even notify me on the changes to my flight."
Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."
Cons: "They wouldn't offer me any change of the flight unless I paid more than double what I originally paid for the airfare. I just lost an entire airfare because they're change fee's are too much, and they are also not allowing me to change the flight to cheaper prices that I've found available on both Kayak and Air Canada. I will never fly Air Canada again."
