Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"

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."

Cons: "Took an hour to de-ice. The snow was forecasted. I understand it's the airport operations, not airline, but there should be a better way."

Pros: "Pretty smooth flight overall. That being said, I don’t mean nd turbulence, the air pockets really get to me. Great service though"

Cons: "Flight wad delayed without letting me know anything for next schedule. and staff was non cooperative."

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: "Great service- friendly patient helpful, pilots that kept passengers updated and very reassuring and confident sounding. KAYAK got me perfect seats!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t spectacular, and being limited to credit card purchasing is always a problem for many travellers. Pre-purchasing options are a great option except for last minute wishes."

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!"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "the turbulance but theres nothing that can be done for that."

Cons: "Bad experience."

Pros: "No surprises."

Cons: "Another long delay with Westjet"

Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"

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!"

Cons: "No breakfast offered for a four hour flight"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"

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)"

Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to every single person that asked for anything on the flight. Even someone asking for a simple glass of water was given attitude. I booked my seats over the phone and they were not the seats they told me they were. Aweful service"

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"

Cons: "My flight and itinerary was cancelled due to the booking staff i planned my travel arrangements for to Mexico. They cancelled the round trip flights i had departing from vancouver to mexico and back so i never was able to use this flight to Vancouver and now will just have a credit there until used. can provide a better rating once i am able to use the flight."

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: "Flight was on time. The landing was smooth, not bumpy."

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: "Air Canada front desk people were wonderful and helpful."

Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "The plane was very old and delayed for too long. Way overpriced air fares."

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."

Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."

Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Lack of sleep"

Pros: "On time, good service and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "Food options limited and quality very poor."

Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."

Pros: "The crew was nice and came by often."
Cons: "There was a dog on the 10 hour flight, I thought United Airlines had an 8 hour limit. The dog barked throughout the flight, so obviously it was a pet not a service animal. UA needs to enforce its own policy."

Pros: "The crew on both legs of our flight were very nice and accommodating."

Cons: "They should have stopped the connecting flight when we got delayed."

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"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Seats are narrow. Not much shoulder space"

Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"

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: "Wi-Fi, as usual, was not working. Plus, there were no screens in the seat, so passengers have to rely on their own smartphones/tablets/magazines/books to keep entertained."

Pros: "On flight entertainment was provided"
Cons: "Even though I booked two tickets together at the same time months before the flight, and there was no option to reserve the seats in advance. when we arrived at the airport we had to go to the gates to get our seats and we were separated, both middle seat exit row on opposite aisles. We asked if any changes could be made and we were told we chose economy seating and all the seats were booked. I will avoid flying with uUnited going forward"

Cons: "The flight was delayed then to top it off we sat on the tarmac awaiting to off load in DesMoines. We spent just as much time waiting to off load as we did in flight!"

Pros: "Early arrival to DSM."

Pros: "priority boarding; timeliness"

Pros: "We were delayed taking off from Denver due to snow storm. The crew was communicative and accommodating."

Pros: "Well, I got there."
Cons: "Purchased economy plus bundle. United employee closed gate in my face at ORD. United Club toilets were filthy and the worst of my problems was the ridiculous selection of teas. (Toilets outside of United Club much cleaner.) I had an economy plus seat, but this did not allow me to board early. So I boarded late and there was no seat in front of me. So I could not put my carry on in front of me. I asked if I could put my bag in top, but attendant told me that I had to ask the first class person in front of me for a favor and thank them for the favor. I did. But this was one of the more disgusting experiences that I have had on an airplane and I paid an extra 100 USD for the privilege of it."

Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Thanks"
Cons: "Cannot think of a thing"

Pros: "Got me from point A to B"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing, very skimpy on drinks, coffee maker didn't work. Ask volunteers to move to back of plane to balance out weight."

Pros: "The crew was one of most pleasurable group that I've flown with. Polite AND funny!"

Pros: "Flight was stuck on tarmac in Denver for 45 minutes. Missed connection Air hostess was very friendly throughout"

Pros: "was"

Pros: "Will bw traveling to chicago then to iowa"
Cons: "Flight delay and itenirary changed"

Cons: "They were so late I got on a different airline"

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: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"

Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"

Pros: "The people on the flight with me"
Cons: "The flight attendants were cocky and then my flight was worse overall my flights in all were horrible with united . I've never been sick on a plain and I got so sick for the landings"

Pros: "Arrival was late and United held the connecting flight! Thanks United."

Pros: "No-thing!!!"
Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"

Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ,7:30 pm to 11:45pm"

Pros: "Being up in the sky so cool."
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."

Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "Entertainment was close to none."

Cons: "No help from the flight attendants before we landed to inquire to see if the connecting flight would wait - just MINUTES!"

Pros: "The boarding made it so much easier for me."

Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."

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: "Same as above."

Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Flight, when it the air, was fine. But..."
Cons: "We arrived from Tampa about 8:00am to discover shortly later that flight 558 would be delayed to 9:30am. Then at 9:30 it was announced the plane is to be delayed to 10:30. Shortly after that announcement it was announced a gate change and further delay to 11:30. Then another delay to 12:20. finally departed."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Fast boarding, pleasant crew, nice leg room!"

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."

Pros: "The fact that you serve a small complimentary drink and snack on such a short flight was extremely appreciated. It seems most airlines either won't serve on a short flight or charge you extra. Also, I absolutely love the new seats on the planes you guys have been using for quite a while now. They're much more sleek/minimalist so they don't take up as much room. As a disabled person, the bulky seats still employed by many planes on other airlines are incredibly hard on me getting in and out of the seat isles. The crew was very efficient and kind. I also appreciate the thank you to military personnel that they announced at the end of the flight."
Cons: "My gate was moved a few minutes prior to scheduled boarding. It was a minor inconvenience. Flight was a bit late getting out, but still arrived at designated time. Complimentary Wifi would be pretty nice, but not expected."

Cons: "Same as the first one"

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: "Great ticket counter staff!"
Cons: "Overbooking a flight by this much is obscene. When an aircraft goes down, everyone loses."

Cons: "The most unpleasant crew we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their customer treatment training."

Pros: "The crew member was ok."
Cons: "????¿"
