My flight was canceled and I had to spend the late night sleeping on a bench in the airport. This was because they were no rooms left at Delta Atlanta Delta should realize that when you cancel a flight you need to follow up with those individuals and not just leave them to fin for them selves and then just leave them hanging in Limbo and them stay overnight in a bench in the airport that wasn’t my fault it was your fault

It didn’t happen. The flight left early. We would have made our connection had they left on time. Our arriving flight had a 2.5 hour delay. We would have made it on our connection had they not left early. Now our luggage is in limbo.

The Pilot were very professional to Explain what direction the plan will take to get La gaurdia .That what I like best 👌👍5*

Early arrival. NIce plane. Quick trip.

Ross, the flight attendant. Won't fly another w his working it.

Cons: "I flew out of Paris twice to head home to the U.S. Each time we left Paris late, resulting in me rushing to catch my connection flight."
Cons: "Great trip!"
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "Boarding should be more organized"
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."
Cons: "Literally any of our flights could have been on time. None were."
Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t have a window at all. The staff didn’t offer any snacks to us. My bag was the only one that didn’t make it while I had a plenty long layover."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "It was a shortest duration flight of the three so I couldn’t point out here what was lacking. Thank you!"
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Cons: "thin seat cushions"
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Just better food"
Pros: "WiFi and Entertainment"
Pros: "Each leg of the flight didn't take as long as initially purported."
Cons: "The second leg of the flight from Seattle to Honolulu was rough. The plane was very outdated and the female flight attendant in comfort plus did not have any customer service. She repeatedly skipped our row, even with the call light on. For a long flight, especially with Delta this is unacceptable"
Pros: "Great entertainment options!"
Cons: "The seats are still too small. I also wish there were hot options for food."
Cons: "Missed waiting 5 hours for next flight"
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "First leg the server “ran” the aisle and I missed drinks/snacks twice. Seats are rediculously in lack of leg space hip to knee area—I’m a 5’10” female."
Pros: "Food was okay. Everything else was great!"
Pros: "Excelente"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Cons: "The seats were very close together which made for an uncomfortable experience due my knee injury and upcoming surgery."
Pros: "Loved that the pilot or first officer, not sure which, came on the intercom at one point and said they were expecting turbulence ahead so if anyone needed to use the bathroom, right then would be the time to go!! Useful information and much appreciated."
Cons: "Some of the announcements by a female flight attendant were delivered at a very rapid pace and were hard to understand, and my first language is English."
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival. Was also quite pleased with the food options available during such a long flight."
Cons: "price could be cheaper"
Cons: "Seat did not recline."
Pros: "The entire flight staff (even at the gate before boarding) was very friendly and accommodating..it was refreshing!"
Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."
Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"
Pros: "Great service and staff. On time both directions."
Cons: "The airplane did not even have storage space for below-standard sized bags. Gate check worked fine, but it was an inconvenience and some of my stuff got frozen"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"
Cons: "it is a shame that for an international trip, with a "superspecial rate" of almost 700 USD. We still had to pay to register 1 piece of luggage. Why are these flights NOT considered international and allow at least one piece of registered luggage? They seem to be considered international when it comes to the ticket price."
Pros: "Seats and snacks were ok"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn't that good. Small screen, headphone input didn't work on my seat."
Pros: "It was crouded seat were uncomfortable otherwise ok"
Pros: "That they served a nice snack/sandwich and or cheese platter...nice touch...also nice selection of free movies"
Cons: "When the person in front of you put their seat back you didn't have a lot of room."
Pros: "The plane was clean and well staffed. The crew was nice and helpful if I needed anything. The snacks and drinks are decent and what you would expect: small bags of pretzels or cookies and your choice of Coke product or coffee. Using the mobile Delta app made boarding and finding my gate a breeze."
Cons: "The seats were hard, and it was hard to fall asleep."
Pros: "I loved being able to watch two movies on my flight! Who has the time for t hat anymore? It makes the hours fly by!"
Cons: "Traveling in general isn't as comfy as it once was, but Delta seems to have been able to make the best of it. Crew friendly and helpful, drinks rolled out frequently, entertainment available. I cannot complain about a thing."
Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Every flight was delayed"
Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Canceled the flight and rebooked without telling me

Better options for food, friendlier staff and better inflight entertainment

On my way from Denver to Munich the flight was delayed. The pilot himself said he couldn't explain the reason for the 1 hour delay. The delay resulted in almost everyone on the flight missing their connections, including me and my husband. No effort was made to help passengers with tight connections to get off the plane and to their gates faster. After an international flight, the last thing you want is an 8-hour layover where you've no choice but to remain awake and exhausted for an unhealthy amount of time. As a pitiful expression of apology, Lufthansa gave us a 10 euro voucher to use in the Munich airport--not even enough for a full, hot meal. Not to mention that checking in for both my flight to and from my destination city was very stressful because of an abundance of travelers and a clear understaffing on the airline's side. Even though I came two hours early to check in for my return flight, I only had ten minutes at the gate before it was boarded. The whole experience was rushed and stressful and inefficient. The worst part, though, was that one of my checked bags was returned to me with my clothes sticking out of it and some speciality cheese I bought entirely missing. I have also found it really difficult to get in touch with the Lufthansa customer service. They claim in emails with my flight information that I especially requested that my reservation number be withheld from me (I never requested this). The loss of this number has made it nearly impossible for me to register complaints without calling the airline and wasting hours of time. I would greatly reconsider ever booking with this airline again.

Pros: "Staff was very good"
Cons: "Plane was very warm"
Cons: "I could not check in because the system cannot link my flight legs and as such it considered that I’m going to Europe although I’m just transiting in Europe. So it required a visa which I don’t have."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was told on the phone earlier (and very rudely) there are no gluten free options for eating. I have celiac disease and do not do the diet for "fun". It's for health. I found out thanks to the excellent crew on board there is an option."
Pros: "The incoming pilot to Nice parked at the wrong gate and apparently, once parked, it could not be moved. So the airport had to scramble buses which made the flight depart more than an hour late. We had a 50-minute layover and Lufthansa did not hold the plane. So we got home a day late."
Cons: "They could have left Nice on time, or held the plane for us in Munich."
Pros: "no drama ....just good, timely service."
Cons: "The seats are tight and sitting on the aisle is a bit uncomfortable for me but I didn't pay extra for a better location."
Pros: "Nothing to say anything flight is cancelled two time. Fed up of Lufthansa service."
Cons: "Change flight rules and regulations. Shouldn't cancel any flight even one passenger booked air ticket. Lufthansa is very worst service."
Cons: "No WiFi, seats had no cushion"
Pros: "Comfy, good food and crew"
Cons: "Very disorganized boarding"
Pros: "We upgraded to economy premium which was fantastic. With the exception of seats that lie down all the way, you feel like you are in business class."
Pros: "Food was great; I appreciate the frequent water/juice service."
Cons: "To fly Lufthansa some more soon. Good jo b, thank you!!."
Pros: "I fly transatlantic often, and I've flown Lufthansa several times before. During the flight I was thinking this was literally the best transatlantic flight I've ever had, and if I can make it work with my schedule and cost constraints I'm going to fly Lufthansa every time. I never really had a 'favorite' airline before, but I do now--Lufthansa. I should have captured the economy classes crews names, but it was 414 from Munich to Dulles on 25 May--they were truly outstanding."
Pros: "We were warmly welcomed on board by the flight captain. I had not expected this. My wife has some physical challenges and received special treatment, in fact we were accorded priority in boarding as she had to temporarily use a wheel chair. Me and my daughter all enjoyed the privilege by association."
Cons: "My wife is diebetes, we had requested for a special diet but although this was documented on the air ticket, there was oversight and she had to make do with normal menu. Fortunately there was no adverse consequences."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous. Food was pretty ok and drinks were available during whole flight. Lufthansa is a good airline"
Pros: "Keeping in mind it was an economy class, I thought the flight was fine. Decent food. I would have preferred some with a heavy cheese sauce. I had gotten sick in Egypt and I felt lousy (dizziness and headache). Despite my physical condition I thought the flight was okay. Crew were professional and airplane was clean. Beer to drink. Other than the fact I was sick, I enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The dinner option was okay. I felt the heavy cheese sauce pasta was a bit too rich. Other components to the dinner was fine."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly, seats are extremely comfortable and good room overall, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Hi, To be honest, it was embarrassing to serve that dish on such a major airline. Chicken with bbq sauce and corn or something like that. Was distasteful I couldn’t take more than 2 small bites."
Pros: "Lufthansa did well with handling a very difficult situation with courtesy, attention, and offering of amenities."
Cons: "Through no fault of Lufthansa, because of problems at JFK, our flight was turned around and returned to Munich after two hours of travel."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess"
Cons: "Delay due to overbooking"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Pros: "Crew was super nice, service great and plane comfort appropriate for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Overhead compartments very narrow and could not fit small carryons."
Pros: "very professional cabin crew"
Cons: "The overhead bins are way too small, and they ran out of the vegetarian dinner option. There are no longer air controls for each seat, and the plane was quite cold."
Pros: "Services, Food, Crew"
Cons: "IFE doesn't had much options."
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable. We were delayed and missed our connection. A woman in the service center expedited finding us a new flight and getting us a good hotel."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Rome. They had scheduled our connection too close (55 minutes) so we missed it. No explanation for the delay was given. The food is just terrible. Might be the worst I've ever had on an airplane. The only way I could book seats ahead of flight day was to buy them - and then I didn't get them because of the delay and had to sit in the second to the last row where it was pretty bumpy."
Cons: "Very weird flight attendant. Seemed unexperienced and stressed out. Bad vibe from the crew in general."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good variety entertainment"
Cons: "Every time LH lands in Bangalore, the priority bags are never given priority. Secondly, my bags were opened and items from inside the bag were taken, like pants and shoes. The luggage strap around the bag was removed and stolen."
Pros: "Clean, new plane."
Cons: "Baggage got lost on a direct flight. A lot to improve here."
Pros: "nice and polite crew"
Cons: "no screens/maps with route information no enterteinment unless downloaded on your own devise, I had an Iphone which is too small to watch anything.... seat hardly reclined at all and felt extreemely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Entertainment system, food. Crew was great."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and artival to YYZ"
Cons: "Got delayed from atl to wash. And my flight from wash to munich left."
Pros: "United airlines a319 was quite shakey felt uncomfortable whereas the Lufthansa connection with the a320 was way better only a bit shakey but felt comfortable and enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "United airlines connection was quite bad. Was 15 min late but didn't really mind it"
Pros: "Smaller plane was more comfortable than the A380 that took me to Frankfort.."
Cons: "The cheese sandwich was awful."
Cons: "First leg of our flight was delayed, second flight departed before we landed."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "That "seats" did not have USB connection (for phone charging)."
Pros: "I loved everything."
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, cramped legroom, and a screaming toddler for several hours nearby."
Pros: "I always enjoy the efficiency of the crew members. The services are great. They even give a wet towel to clean the hands before meal service. Movie selection is descent. Not too many newly released movies though."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than 1 hour due to computer problem. The leg room was smaller than other airlines I fly with in economy class. It made the second half the trip less comfortable."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Service and entertainment were great. The food was somewhat better than most airlines with free beer and wine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on departure by 8 hours. This caused us to cancel and rearrange hotels. The flight back had to make an emergency medical stop for 2 hours but this was not the fault of the airline and is understandable.."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and provided snacks even though the flight was short"
Cons: "This flight was good!"
Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."
Pros: "crew, cleanliness"
Cons: "very little legroom, very uncomfortable for travellers who cannot afford business class"
Pros: "the service,order, attention, human quality, punctuality. all in general."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "-- > Multiple (4) gate changes"
Cons: "The first flight was late because the personnel was forgotten at their hotel. My luggage was lost’"
Pros: "Great flight. No problems."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "A very enjoyable flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "yes every thing was good.."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. My mother needed a wheelchair on and off each time. And the staff was there to help her . That was a blessing"
Cons: "Not much. I know seating is limited on space, so that’s the only thing . Wish there was more space."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was the first time in 37 years that I have flown so i had a little motion sickness but that has nothing to do with your crew or airline. This experience was very good thank you"
Cons: "1. For the flight to not have been cancelled. 2. For a replacement flight within 12 hours. 3. Hotel vouchers and meal vouchers for those that could not get on a flight for longer than 24 hours post original flight! Disgusting the way passengers have been treated"
Pros: "Unreal service by all WJ employees. Great service getting my 87 year old mom to and from everything."
Pros: "Very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "My inflight entertainment system didn’t work."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin was way too warm. Also not as much space on 737-700 as 737-800"
Cons: "It was all good."
Cons: "We landed in Phoenix and spent over an hour on the runway, when we did finally get a gate it didn’t work. The delays caused me to miss my ground transportation."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Otherwise fine."
Pros: "Check in was quick and easy. Boarding and flight was right on time!"
Pros: "Safety and on time."
Cons: "Grumpy cabin crew."
Pros: "What a great experience flying west jet!! The crew was so accommodating. I got sick on the plane and there were so many people jumping to help me make sure I was confortable. I’ve flown all airlines and will be flying West Jet again."
Pros: "Overall an easy experience. Cheap!"
Cons: "West jet has got to figure out a better way to board the plane- the "zone" model is a nightmare."
Pros: "Always a pleasure flying with Westjet! We even arrived 15 minutes early"
Pros: "It was easy getting through the line and onto the plane. The seat was on the window, which I wouldn't normally sit in, and was comfortable enough for me to get an hour of sleep on an overnight flight; I'm content with that."
Cons: "The fee for changing my assigned seat, thus the window seat, and one of the flight attendants was very impolite; though overall the flight attendants were pleasant enough."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "Everybody was nice. It was my second time flying and they sure do make you feel comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like. It was great all around!"
Pros: "Affordable, great service, and easy"
Cons: "The internet and TV service were both broken on the flight. I missed out on much of the work I had to do. I was very disappointed that we were only told just minutes before boarding. I was not prepared to spend 5 hours on a flight with a screaming baby, unable to work or watch tv."
Cons: "Boarding attendant demanded to see my passport for a domestic flight even though I had produced the government-issued photo ID required."
Pros: "I like everything"
Cons: "I was told they don't help you store your carry on. At 66 and 5 feet tall this seems like an impossible feat likely to create issues as it falls on my head."
Pros: "Crew was good as usual."
Cons: "Thought the flight may have been delayed due to issues with ice rain in Toronto. From what was said, it wasn't that, some other issue with the plane and a cancelled flight in the west. No email in advance, no apologies, no freebies (like even a stupid sandwich). You sit an extra 2 and a half hours in an airport with a 5 year old before a 4 hour flight, and see how much the lack of anything grates. And paying for the first bag on the flight. And the emails they did send were after we were already at the airport-in no time to do any good. I Usually like West Jet , but losing my faith in them. Wonder how flair is..."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment and food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "We didn’t like having to take the red eye to meet our Costa Rica connection. We"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice, professional crew."
Cons: "I have a dog in the plane with me. None of my flights offered to make me board first. It harder to move through the aisle by myself with my pup in her carrier and my personal effect . Some nice passengers helped me when they saw I was struggling but O feel that is the crew's job."
Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"
Pros: "Both planes departed late and reason given was staff has not yet arrived . First plane could not rationalize the number of people on board ."
Cons: "Service was slow and staff seemed to be very casual about the fact we would be an hour late"
Pros: "Quick and direct. Great staff"
Cons: "Food."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Cons: "Of the four flights I took with WestJet this holiday, 3 were delayed. The flights were frigid. On this flight the agent at the gate was very rude when I asked about checking my bag, lecturing me about the size of the bag and insisting she would have to charge me if it was a full flight, which she said it wasn’t. It ended up fitting just fine in the overhead. Totally soured my experience. I will not use this airline again."
Pros: "Quick boarding on departure and exit at arrival."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "The WestJet staff, from gate check in to the flight crew, were excellent."
Cons: "The fact that people with pets board first is ridiculous enough to keep me from choosing WJ as my first option. They boarded before seniors and children. What has happened to our crazy world that pets are more important than people."
Pros: "Overall flight and connections were good. Board process was smooth and flight departed and arrived on time. Watch for baggage delays when arriving in Fort McMurray as they can sometimes be excessive. No entertainment provided on the smaller planes but most people have some form of entertainment with them."
Cons: "One of the crew members was not careful enough while taking something out of the overhead cabinet and dropped something on my head while I was asleep. The crew apologized but it should not have happened in the first place while the aircraft was flying smoothly and there was no turbulence of any kind at that time."
Pros: "On time, clean, friendly staff."
Cons: "Crew missed me with the drink cart."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "All Good"
Cons: "After landing in Edmonton could of been on next flight to Kelowna ended up waiting 1 1/2 for second flight to Kelown"
Cons: "Il serait bien d'avertir plus à l'avance les passagers au sujet de l'application nécessaire pour l'entertainement ou permettre de l télécharger via le wifi de westjet"
Cons: "It was freezing cold, and blankets now cost $4.00! So I spent the whole red eye shivering, even in my sweater! I could feel the cold air hitting me the whole flight. The boarding was confusing, with no organized lines or anything. Some of the announcements were too quiet to hear."
Pros: "WestJet staff and crew fantastic"
Pros: "Everthing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
Pros: "Timeliness of the boarding"
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"
Cons: "No delays"
Pros: "Great crew. Very pleasant & friendly."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and flight was excellent"
Pros: "The few were friendly."
Cons: "The food selection was poor."
Cons: "A better snack option would be appreciated"
Pros: "Entertainment, service"
Cons: "30 minutes of delay at least."
Pros: "Gate crew were very good at keeping us apprised of the status of the inbound plane and our estimate departure time. The flight crew were all very helpful and engaging. Not easy on a packed flight where too many people brought too many carry-on bags."
Cons: "I am a true-blue Air Canada customer but their checked baggage fees has created a disaster when it comes to boarding flights and getting planes in the air on-time. Many people had too many carry-on bags or very large carry-on bags so the time it took to board was ridiculous. Better rules need to be enforced with carry on (not that I blame people for trying, considering the increase in checked baggage fees) so that flights can be boarded more quickly and planes can take off on time."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "The lunch was average at best. Comedy show selections were terrible (in my opinion). I miss the days of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development."
Pros: "Extra legroom but I paid for that"
Cons: "Not getting the meal I prepaid for and the curtain of business class constantly hitting me it was not good."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight overall. That being said, I don’t mean nd turbulence, the air pockets really get to me. Great service though"
Pros: "Friendly attendants, excellent foods"
Cons: "For 2 1/2 hours the baby was kicking the back of my seat. I Thurber around a few times, said something once the the so called parents were not willing to help. I mentioned it to the flight attendednt but being a full flight there were no seat. Changes available. The parents even switched seats but only with each other, they kept the baby behind me. I can only hope they have a baby kicking their seat in the future"
Pros: "The flights are fine, on time."
Pros: "the staff very helpful , respectful, didn't feel rush they had their attention on helping me .Very grateful Thank you all"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything"
Cons: "I had problems rebooking , they made multiply mistakes costing ME over 300 dollars cad ... very upset , flight was cancelled, they didn’t pay for my hotel .. worst experience.. flying with west jet next time"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Air Canada was a disaster on our vacation. Delays, re bookings, cancellations. Every thing was told to us as an excuse from the weather, flight attendant was running late, not staffed enough, need supplies on the plane, someone died, planes needing de-icing, planes too small, planes overbooked... you name it they said it! New York to Toronto, Toronto to Edmonton and return. Not one single flight was on time! We got put in a Hotel - only nice part of the trip - got Vouchers for $15 each - such a low amount!!! Didn't get our luggage with our clothes and amenities to use at the hotel - had to sleep in our plane clothes. Spend extra money we didn't have... it was awful! We will be staying away from Air Canada for awhile!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to ATC"
Cons: "Bad experience."
Cons: "Narrow seats in business, insufficient recline, no extra pillows"
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "The connection"
Pros: "Crew are very nice and approachable. No complain about their service. And flight is on time."
Pros: "The flight was good, on time, and comfortable. Crew was polite and informative."
Cons: "The sound did not work on my screen, even after trying 3 different sets of headphones."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Two full drink services was nice"
Cons: "USB outlet didn't work, and my seat didn't have a normal AC outlet"
Pros: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus after our flight was delayed and we had to go back home for a night... Live 45 minutes from the airport and had to have a friend drop us off and come back to get us. Friendly staff for the most part. Some seemed a little stressed out, but its understandable as the job is probably stressful. Especially before christmas."
Cons: "Slow boarding, crowded plane when boarding- rushed to get us on the flight."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The Edmonton lounge is not sufficient. Minimal food. It is supposed to be above and beyond, but not worth trying to get points for."
Pros: "The trip to Edmonton was very smooth and right on time. Everything was very good.....including the baby behind us. I will fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I didn't like the change in gate at Edmonton to Vancouver. No one told us until boarding time. Even tho there was ample time to get there since it was the next door gate, I was in a wheelchair and if it had been any further, it could've been a disaster. We arrived right on time. I'd go Air Canada again."
Pros: "Free business class"
Cons: "Food and no entrainment available"
Pros: "was a really great trip- I took the dreamliner last week and that was an amazing treat"
Cons: "Westjet gives pretzels or cookies complementary- I was surprised Air Canada didn't do the same Was a little squishy but all planes are!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight attendants were pleasent."
Pros: "In general, everything is fine. Boarding was good"
Cons: "Lack of food options for people with celiac disease. No ingredients on the dip in carrots and celery dip. Was told it was gluten free, but had a very bad reaction to it."
Cons: "Flight was delays from anotjer air company i had to paid 160$ to get on the next one.."
Pros: "Comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "Baggage fees and no snacks."
Cons: "It was too hot, very warm and could not get the temperature down. Everyone was sweating it was bad."
Pros: "Good selection of free movies and shows on board. Some great and helpful flight attendants."
Cons: "The staff at check in were not overly helpful. We were running late and possibly going to miss our flight and they did not seem willing to help us out at all."
Pros: "The crew was inviting, helpful, and very kind."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. No WIFI on the plane (which was, admittedly disclosed upon ticket purchase, so it was no fault of air canada). Chairs were very uncomfortable and the individual in front of me reclined fully for the entire trip."
Cons: "Both my flights (there and back) were delayed, my luggage was lost after I was asked to volunteer to check it in and on the delay (YYC to YUL), I wasn't even given a food voucher after being made to wait 8h in the airport. This was AFTER the crew promised they would hold the other flights (also operated by AC)"
Pros: "The way back there was nobody beside us. Nice to have extra room."
Cons: "On the way back there was only one person in business class. Nobody got bumped up"
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "The loading was better organized then in the past, so smoother; not as chaotic."
Cons: "No amenities offered other than a free thimble of something to drink. I'm waiting for them to charge for breathable air."
Pros: "Landed alive in vancouver"
Cons: "Second time in two months that they delayed my flight by at least 3 hours."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours !"
Pros: "It was on-time, left enough time to reach connections and my bag arrived."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed boarding in NYC but it wasn't a long delay and we left on time."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "Some staff were very personable and some were the opposite."
Cons: "Staff needed assistance in folding stroller - whereas this has never been a concern on porter. - stroller was thrown on the floor at landing and retrieval."

See previous comments. Flights cancelled and replaced with different itinerary resulting in 2 day delay in arriving at destination.

3 hour delay

Pros: "Comodidad en el avión"
Cons: "Hay desorden en la coordinación de los vuelos, atrasos, yo tuve un atraso de 11 horas, otros perdieron conexión, y no es tampoco porque se paga barato, porque los pasajes están caros"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Pros: "I finally got home! What was supposed to be a 4-5 hour flight took over 12 hours."
Cons: "United Airlines sucks. If you can avoid United Airlines you should. They might seem like a better price but what they don’t tell you is they are going to burn your time and waste your money. They are not accountability for delays or non - delivery of service. Their customer service mantra"
Pros: "Crew was amazing seat are good from Denver to Cincinnati But from Edmonton to Denver seat were tight"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Seats are narrow. Not much shoulder space"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "Cramped"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "My friend and I were forced to check our carry on bags at the gate and the airline lost my friends bag for four days."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Pros: "Flight was stuck on tarmac in Denver for 45 minutes. Missed connection Air hostess was very friendly throughout"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."
Cons: "They were so late I got on a different airline"
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "The crew on my 2 united flights on me way to Phoenix were extremely professional. One of my flight attendants, Carolyn (from Chicago) was excellent. United is not usually know for its great reviews, but I was very impressed. I will fly United again!"
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "Seat comfort. Crew was much nicer than crew I had out Houston on previous trip."
Cons: "I put 3's on food and entertainment because it wasn't used partially due to availability. I wasn't able to download app and personal headphones ended up being checked due to small plane so couldn't listen to anything. I wasn't partial to food options so didn't get to eat"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "I was really upset when I was told at airport that my direct flight was changed to connecting flight. Plus I requested a wheelchair due to medical issues on my hip and I was not provided any wheel chair on Vancouver."
Cons: "I did not go to Edmonton, and was not notified. They placed me on a non stop from Vancouver to Chicago. It was lucky that I caught the change."
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "The crew member was ok."
Cons: "????¿"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."
