Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."
Cons: "Went from LA to Guangzhou, China. My family checked 6 bags in. Only 5 arrived in China. My bag with ALL my clothes and ALL my meds was the one missing. I had nothing to wear (and that includes underwear) and no meds for 2 freakin’ days. Worst experience EVER!!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."
Pros: "The cockpit crew waited to turn the plan off until the Footbal playoff game was finished. I thought that was very considerate of them."
Cons: "Seats were right but that I guess is to be expected these days."
Pros: "Informative communications during delay"
Cons: "Rushing to board resulting in bad customer service during boarding"
Pros: "Perfectly fine first class trip"
Cons: "Breakfast meal was awful"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "My wife's pre-check was not added to her ticket. Plane was extremely late taking off. No entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I liked the check-in kiosk, but only because I had no bags to check. I liked being able to choose my own seat. I liked that the flight was uneventful. I liked the staff at all stages, they were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They made me shove my purse into my knapsack to fit within their two bag policy. That's a first for me. My Delta flight did not do that."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."
Pros: "I like that if you're willing to gate check your bag, Delta allows you to check in with Zone 1 boarding. Seats did have plugs, which is a huge plus."
Cons: "Touch screens on the in-seat TV were not sensitive enough, technology on board was somewhat outdated."
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with pleasant staff. I slept most of the way."
Cons: "I was satisfied with this flight and did not experience and discomfort during it"
Pros: "Friendly people and clean plane"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, I hope it shows up shortly"

Pros: "Delta flight attendants ultimately removing the passenger."
Cons: "The man that called the mother and her son a "F***** b****"."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."
Cons: "No free meals."
Pros: "The crew was professional and efficient. This includes the ground personnel that had to cope with a grossly overbooked flight. I was upgraded to comfort+ at the gate."
Cons: "Fed up with the .4 oz pretzels. The arrival in LAX was chaotic. We had left on-time and were told that we would arrive approx. 20 minutes early. Ha! First landing attempt had to be aborted, the landing not being cleared by the control tower. Then we cruised, circling over the Ocean, and the lights of the city again. Finally we landed. Taxiing on the tarmac was interrupted many times, and took overall 30 minutes. The pilot kept informing us. I was probably not the only passenger that had and urgent need to reach a bathroom... Of course, Delta should not be blamed"
Pros: "Very easy flight & process"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Crew weren't really friendly. Special menu food wasn't great"
Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."
Pros: "I fly frequently and overall the flight was great. My biggest complaint is that as a paying customer (vs non rev) I think it is kind of crazy that I did not have an assigned seat until I walked onto the plane. I really disliked tjis process. I found it to be an unnecessary stress. When I asked the gate agent about it I didn't get a clear answer as to where I will be sitting. I'd much rather know what my seat number is before I board the plane. Other then this bizarre process. Everything was great."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and not helpful. The checkin counter at the Sydney airport is hidden. Better signage would be helpful in locating the area"
Pros: "Delta is one of the best airlines I've flown with. Staff is very helpful, and customer service and amenities are tip notch."
Cons: "For some reason , we we did not have seat until the day we left, they ended up placing us in the back. Not that I mind sitting in the back, it was just a scary thought that we didn't have assigned seat when I bought the tickets- I remember picking my seat"
Pros: "Nice flight. Early arrival. Had a complementary beer onboard. Luggage in less than 20 mins."
Pros: "EVERYONE WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "NOTHING ON THIS PART TRIP WAS FINE"
Pros: "The small scack/meal was excellent. Good service. Smooth flight. In-out-done! Good job Delta!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything negative. A long time standing by on runway waiting for departure."
Pros: "Not enough meals for ALL Passengers, we were S.O.L. DELAYED flight, snotty stewardess, flight changed by our request but baggage sent to WRONG DESTINATION. WE HAD TO Arrange for luggage to be picked up aND drive an hour to get it. After waiting 3 hours to locate our luggage. I Will NEVER FLY DELTA SKELTOR' nor will I recommend THEM EITHER"
Cons: "Check point had only one person working on a holiday weekend made for an extremely long wait"
Cons: "The first 2 hours were so bumpy that I got sick. I was also in the middle seat and was so uncomfortable I couldn't sleep."
Pros: "We were given snacks and sandwiches for the delay."
Cons: "Paid for an upgrade but the seat was not what I had asked for. The agent said I would get a refund but I was not clear on how that works. Our plane experienced a mechanical issue. We were told after we boarded. Had to wait 1 1/2 hours in a stuffy hot plane. The bathrooms were very dirty and stinky. The bathroom door did not close properly. We finally deplaned and waited for a new plane. Got to Kona at 2:00am. The air temp was warm the entire flight. Had to endure a grumpy crew. Not the best flying experience. I know you can do better. Maybe look at how Hawaiian airlines does it and you might get some inspiration on how to improve."
Cons: "The person taking tickets asked me to check my bag. I said ok and he instructed me to step aside and taking anything out of it that I might need. I did this and when I came back they had locked the doors."
Cons: "Crew was nice, however the flight get was 2 hours late, then a gate change and no explanation why late. Once on the runway, again back. Not a good experience overall."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The seats were the worst. Pretty sure mine was broken."
Pros: "Best flight I have ever been on. Flight staff was out of this world. Security was so so quick. Loved it."
Pros: "Having recently flown from PVR to LAX on AA I can only say that Delta makes coach seem like first class compared to the competition. Instead of being treated like livestock Delta makes its passengers comfortable offering blankets and head phones in coach servicing Starbucks Coffee not week old coffee left in the galley., Flying has gone from being a privilege to a punishment and thank you for valuing the coach crowd ."
Pros: "the in flight service and free movies"
Pros: "A safe flight! Who could really ask for more."
Cons: "It is so cramped in there the person sitting next to me going & coming was literally on top of me. As a business man myself I completely understand more people more money lower fares I get it. However extremely uncomfortable flight. Will try another airline next time."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I was really surprise that the coach seats were comfortable and had plenty of space. Flight was on time and it was easy to check in luggage. I truly enjoyed my 12 hour flight. I will be booking my international flight with Lufthansa again."

Cons: "Seats are very close together in Economy"
Cons: "overall service"
Pros: "On the whole, classy service and comfortable The flight attendant who took the time to help me understand how customs would work"
Cons: "The flight attendant who said she'd get back to me when I had a question about connecting flights. Not only did she not get back to me, but with annoyance asked me hadn't I heard the captain's message on the loudspeaker. The captain had said to ask a flight attendant for further info, which is what I was trying to do."
Pros: "Comfortable, crew are very helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Food isn't that good"
Pros: "The amenities were a nice touch (headphones, blanket, pillow) and nice selection of current movies. The captain made timely announcements to update us where we were flying over and what our expected arrival time was in German and English."
Cons: "I was surprised that there were at least four dogs on the flight, some without a carrier. I didn't care for one of the meals which was mixed peppers with onions, cheese and potatoes. I thought the meals were overly salted but what airline's meal isn't."
Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."
Cons: "There was a 4.5 hr delay due to "technical difficulties". We had to switch planes. This caused me to miss my flight to Tucson out of LAX. When I asked them to help rebook my flight that Lufthansa caused ne to miss, i was told there is nothing they can do. Seeing as how that last flight was not booked through Lufthansa. This is absolutely ridiculous! There were no Lufthansa flights into Tucson so I had no choice but to go with another carrier! So after a long grueling 4.5 hr delay and 11+hr flight now I have to stay in a hotel because my flight out via Southwest was the last one out for the day and The only nonstop flight departs at 12:35 tomorrow. Thank goodness Southwest booked me on another flight at no charge! They take care of their customers. It was not their fault I missed the flight. It was dur to the "techincal difficulties" with Lufthansa. And every hotel within a 8 mile radius has been sold out. And at one point I booked online only to find out upon my arrival, after paying for taxi and havig him leave, thAt this hotel is sold out and should not have allowed me to book online. So after landing at 7:15 pm at LAX I am just now in bed at a hotel after searching and paying for cabs etc. And on my dime! Absolutely ridiculous !!"
Pros: "missed my connecting flight to hawaii, Lufthansa, put me up in a room and feed me, thank you. Plus got me on the next flight out."
Cons: "if I could have got off the plane quicker I maybe could have made my flight. took 20 minutes to de de board"
Pros: "Wrote my thoughts in the wrong section. See Milan to Frankfurt"

Cons: "I started to get hungry between meals."
Pros: "The crew did their best to help several people whose seat requests were not honored including a woman traveling with a dog who was given an aisle instead of a window seat. Crew came around with water and juice frequently."
Cons: "Seat assignments were not honored. My husband and I were seated in two different rows even though we requested to sit together in an aisle and window seat and checked in the day before the flight This happened on all four legs of a trip to South Africa. Extremely narrow seats and little leg room. Felt like a cattle car. An aggressive woman with disruptive, screaming children was allowed to Torture passengers for a good five hours of the flight before the bursar finally moved her. This was after several hours of complaints from other passengers. She was eventually moved twice due to passenger complaints. The situation should have been handled after the first complaints which occurred two hours into the flight before the situation completely detiorated Food was terrible and meals ran out."
Cons: "Cramped seating in Economy"
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "12 hour flights in general not the most comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and took good care of everybody in general."
Cons: "On the way back from Munich the gluten free bread served was not edible! I would recommend to change it to something more appetizing. It's been used for way too many years! On the LA bound plane the GF bun was wonderful! Thank you though for caring to serve GF food! Not the most comfortable seats for your back in the economy class."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time. It would've been helpful if more announcements were translated to English."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "the person sitting next to me, barefooted the whole flight with nasty toes"
Cons: "The window seats are not comfortable like in other planes. The windows are too high, you don't see anything. The seat is too far from the window so you cannot lean towards it. For a 10 hour flight it was not comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent crew & service; enjoyed the special meal selections and the great movie options."
Pros: "New plane has nice wider seat."
Cons: "Letter size on In-Flight-Entertainment is too small. Units looked more like a tablet and some function seems missing or hard to find. Passenger needed to put on the foam piece to the headset. Hard to do as I broke both when trying."
Pros: "everything else was fine"
Cons: "the bathroom smell. they should have at least a good smelling soap, like lemonsoap.... the pasta was too overcooked."
Pros: "Service was so wonderful - very attentive crew."
Pros: "Service with a smile. Great food. Great use of space for bathrooms away from passengers"
Cons: "Food was quite disgusting. Further, I was sitting next to (6!) babies, who took turns through the whole duration of the flight to cry, shout, and jump around: it was impossible to get any sleep, or work done."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good beverage service, good movie selection. Lufthansa is my favorite airline to fly."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The seats on my return fight were terrible! my knees were touching the seat in front of me. nehmen the person ahead leaned their seat back, I only had about 10" from my face to their seat. Terrible! Also difficult to watch a movie with the screen that close to your face; that's terrible on the eyes."
Pros: "Lufthansa flights was great as usual. Super Clean airplane, polite crew, entertainment selection was good, well functioning head rest design!"
Cons: "The western vegetarian/Vegan meal's texture, taste, and quality was astoundingly aweful. It was actually funny how bad the food was."

Pros: "IT WAS ALL PRETTY GOOD"
Cons: "THAT I WAS IN COACH BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR AN UPGRADE"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, prompt service, smooth flight, clean airplane and the inflight entertainment was nice too. Love the cams on the airplane, to see what's going on outside"
Cons: "The de-icing took some time but obviously it's for everybody's safety, but it did delay us, as well as the ownerless luggage that had to be removed from the airplane. I do appreciate LH making safety their priority"
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "Twice the choice between chicken and pasta - more variety bumpy landing after pre boarding no announcement that now general boarding"
Pros: "Food was actually daily good"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted to drop off sick passengers. 10 hours after being served lunch and after the sick passengers had disembarked, there was little update on the flight status and no update on passengers getting dinner. The crew did not hand out water or snacks in the duration but instead ate and drank themselves in the crew area. If you wanted to eat or drink you had to interrupt them, and specifically ask to have a glass of water. If as a flight attendant you are hungry or thirsty after not having anything for so long, it's a good assumption the other 250+ passengers are also. Very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Air bus was amazing!"
Pros: "fast and friendly checkin, fast boarding, easy transmit"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable. Crew was great."
Pros: "Amazing flight , crew excellent , good food. Definitely I will travel again with Austrian Airlines"

Pros: "The cleanest of the airport and the airplane"
Cons: "The 15 hours layover"
Pros: "Entertainment players"
Cons: "Organization when boarding (a line vs. a mob of people from all different boarding groups) not organized at all. Ended up leaving about 45 minutes late."
Cons: "My wife and I were separated by six rows. Unacceptable!"
Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."
Pros: "Food and workers were great"
Cons: "Terrible food and service"
Pros: "The crew was not very unhelpful & hardly accommodating, not helpful at all. I have never met such a cold hearted airline crew, so unthankful & not trying to help customer. They kept rolling their eyes & speaking like I was a dirt. I will NEVER fly this airline & I will make sure everyone knows."
Cons: "Came early to counter & my passport expires August 9th, so they refuse to help me & did not let me go on board even though I had approval from Jordanian country to fly there. Austerian ticket crew & supervisor did not want even to check the pass through to board with permission. The WORSE airline!!!"

Cons: "There was a mix up about my reservation/ticket. Was stuck at the ticket desk for 45 min"
Pros: "The seats were very nice, and I found it very pleasing that everything was colour coordinated. (the small details in red and the rest in gray). The flight attendants were so happy and upbeat, it lifted your mood as well! I believe that we left a few minutes early, as boarding was completed early. And thefood? Mind-blowing for airplane food. I really enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the flight. Sometimes the announcements were very slightly difficult to hear (accents and whatnot,) but you could still tell what they were saying."
Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"
Pros: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Cons: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"
Pros: "It was a total nightmare all Austrian flights they put us on were canceled !!! We did not leave Vienna for another 7 h a total nightmare all planes had technically difuculties !! Austrian airlines had total chaos !!!"

Cons: "My checked in baggage did not arrive with me, the staff told me it'll arrive the same day in the evening but it did not and nobody informed me, I only found out after calling them 5 times (which 2 times they hung up on me after putting me on hold). My bag only arrived almost 35 hours after i already landed Hong Kong, without being able to tell me when exactly and made me sit and wait for them to deliver it at mid-night."
Pros: "food was great. Slightly cold in cabin."
Cons: "had a narrow connecting flight VIE to MUC, VIE flight was delayed and had to catch MUC to IAD flight in less than 15 min. One luggage was missing at baggage claim, but as DC/ Baltimore is home, luggage arrived in 48 hrs. All is well that ends well."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, flight was on time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight of 12h 20min?! I was offered the appetizer (pretzel or biscuit - both of 14gr of product inside). This is unacceptable - overseas flights have to have some snacks No eye mask or ear plugs, nor socks for economy class Outdated entertainment"
Pros: "Highly efficient transfer (45 minutes between flights)"
Cons: "too short a time to transfer between flights as a very long distance between gates,"
Cons: "We landed so close to our boarding time, by the time i got through everything, i was notified that i had to go to gate 11 for a special security check...it was stressful since my flight was boarding...i found it really frustrating . Ultimately the plane waited and it worked out, but the process was long and VERY stressful."
Pros: "Was a fine solid flight by Austrian."
Pros: "Safety, timeliness, friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Entertainment is outdated"
Cons: "Missed my flight!!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was at the good level. Professional people to work with."
Cons: "Not enough room for overhead bags. Had to put mine in the front of the plane while I sat at the back of the plane. What I really didn't like is that I called Kayak to include my Global Entry number on my boarding pass. They said it would be there and when I printed it, it wasn't. So coming back into the states and thru customs took waaay longer than it should have with those chaotic and ridiculously long lines. I didn't bring my Global Pass card with me and will from now on!"
Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"
Pros: "The rep was able to get me on Air France instead."
Cons: "This flight switch added a layover and 8 hrs to my journey home. Not to mention I was in a middle seat on the. 11 hr leg when I had originally booked a window seat."

Pros: "arrived early"
Pros: "I like the food , service and clean airplane."
Pros: "The meal was ok The airplane was clean"
Cons: "Seats were very nerow .No help from the crew . Flight delayed"
Pros: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Cons: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."
Pros: "Good service, nice staff (better than US carriers easily)"
Cons: "2.5 hours to receive baggage - this might be on LAX"
Pros: "Good food, lots of movies, flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "We paid to pre-book our seats and when we got on the plane they had been given away. We heard several different reasons, none of which made is feel better about the two middle seats we were told we had no choice but to take, while people who had NOT prepaid sat in our aisle seat. It was offensive to be forced to pay to select our seats in advance on a major international airline in the first place, and then to not have those honored just made it worse."
Pros: "Nice staff. efficient."
Pros: "Expertise and effiency of the flight crew."
Pros: "Attention during waiting time and inside cabin"
Pros: "No stops"
Cons: "Because of Boeing disaster did not go to Halifax but were sent by Westjet to TO and then on with Air France. Boarding areas in TO are a long way away (lot of walking) and customs in TO is frustrating and takes a long time."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"
Pros: "The check-in process was very easy and friendly. The flight attendants seemed nicer than other airlines."

Pros: "Room Sears in row 4"
Cons: "When landing on final approach close to the ground, the pilot pulled up and passed the airport. It was almost 10 minutes before he got on the intercom and told us what was going on. Apparently traffic control told him there was a backup and to circle around. Not knowing what the situation was, was very nerve racking. It would have been nice to hear an announcement of the situation sooner."
Pros: "Smooth flight, staff are all friendly! Overall a great trip!"
Cons: "Food and entertainment require extra charge, although I understand that it is standard for short trips and smaller planes."
Pros: "All was on time so did not have to deal with Kayak with any problems"

Pros: "Friendly staff on time"
Pros: "Most employees were courteous."
Cons: "Flights were delayed multiple times . boarding was slow, seemed un organized."
Pros: "We were happy to be seated in the exit row which gave us additional space. Although it was a direct flight, they offered drinks and snacks twice, when normally when flying I only see then come by once. I noticed Aiden seemed really friendly and kept a smile. Also when dropping off our luggage beforehand was a fairly speedy process."
Cons: "Seats don’t lean back."
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything borded on time. Cabin crew was very accommodating in allowing me to move seats to an empty row."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"
Pros: "Very entertaining flight crew. One attendant cracked jokes sang happy birthday announced wedding party . Never boring very friendly"
Pros: "Before taking this flight, I was very nervous because of all the bad reviews on here and other sites. The only good reviews seemed to be by people from Alberta (not really trustworthy, as they seem to support anything that's from Alberta, and note that Westjet is based in Alberta...). But I was blown away by how organized Westjet was and how nice they were. All the flights were on time (I had a few layovers), the staff was helpful....I really have no complaints. Sure, they don't have a plethora of great in-flight entertainment such as movies, etc. But when I fly, I'd rather pay less, have the staff be nice/organized, and just bring a darn book to entertain me. It was a great first flight with this company. I would fly with them again....and I can't remember the last time I said that about any other airline. So do yourself a favor: Don't listen to the bad reviews on here (unless you're obsessed with in-flight entertainment and big-butt first class seats)."
Cons: "The movie and T.V. show selection was bad. But that's not a big deal for me...."
Pros: "Easy check-in, bag drop off even with elderly person traveling with us. Great staff at the airport."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant it just gets a bit too hokey!"
Cons: "Calgary airport for a transfer between Canada and the US is like a bad episode of Monty Python! It takes far too long and is far too dependent on the efficiency of silly tram drivers, baggage handlers who are phantoms and computer efficacy! All I care about at the airport, and all I want from airport staff is ruthless efficiency. Anything besides ruthless efficiency is just obnoxious and wastes my time!! No wifi on the aircraft nothing decent to eat on a flight scheduled during the dinner hour"
Cons: "Hate to have to buy the food!! No entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and took another 45 min to leave once boarding was complete"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Small seats. Nonexistent food and entertainment option are all self provided"
Pros: "the crew are always great. the flight was on time and fast!"
Cons: "the whole "put your own tags on the bags and load them". we spent 5-10 minutes trying to figure it out. There was someone that came over to assist us and it was still not user friendly. there were not in flight television system. I guess I am spoiled now."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. Boarding was well organized and fast."
Cons: "No food and very warm on the plane."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We were delayed by 30 mins. We waited another 20 mins at the gate because there was another plane there. We only got cheetos as a snack."
Cons: "Being late into LA"
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to download an app for vieweing movies burning flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and boarding took forever (much longer than usual and I fly pretty often)"
Pros: "Flight attendants were super friendly. The plane was very nice and spacious, the flight was smooth and the landing was excellent!"
Pros: "The women at the boarding kiosk were very good as they helped me to avoid the lineup for rebooking my flight. It was fast and rebooking through the website. Avoid calling them."
Pros: "I travel on plus and the person who was in charge of our sección was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "what i don't like is that i had to wait for my luggage an hour . causin incomvinience for me later."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."
Pros: "My daughter ordered the tickets for us but she didn't pick seats. We forget to pre checked in, either. Our flight was very full so We are so lucky got the first class seats! This is the first time in our life with first class experiences! It was on the July 4th and saw a lots of fireworks in the airplane! We are so exciting! Thank you for West Jet Airline!"
Cons: "1+ hour before we took off after getting on the plane. 1+ hour before we got off the plane after landing."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, more legroom than the American Airline flight"
Cons: "I prefer to have a TV to watch instead of downloading the App."
Pros: "online checkin, fast boarding (a total of only 27 passengers undoubtedly made boarding much quicker), had extra space due to the sparse flight; smooth flight, good refreshments, pilot did a good job of keeping us updated on runway/gate status"
Cons: "on board crew didn't seem interested; empty cup was never picked up; upon leaving the aircraft (after a 30 minute delay due to a problem at our gate) none of the crew said as much as goodbye or thanks. I know it was a late flight with very few passengers, many of whom may have slept, but as such I thought the crew should have been more attentive and friendly at departure. A disappointing experience."
Pros: "A few days before our flight to Halifax which was originally scheduled with a stop over in Toronto, we received an email from Westjet that they were putting us on the direct flight. This enabled us to avoid the Toronto bottleneck and get to our destination on time. Thank you Westjet."
Pros: "Nice Staff. Easy process."
Cons: "Would prefer actual tv entertainment. Not having to have your own device or rent one."
Pros: "Comfy legroom (for someone who is 6'5") and comfortable seat."
Cons: "Late take off, late arrival at gate, late baggage delivery."
Pros: "Good flight. Had internet access for low cost."
Cons: "My flight was an early morning flight 8 am. I needed to get up at 5 am to get ready for this flight. AC notified me 5:05 am that my flight delayed 3 hrs to 11am. I wish they told us the night before so no need to get up that early."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good and seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing because there were few or no announcements of which zone was boarding, and it wasn't clear exactly which desk to proceed to for boarding"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The leg room"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, leg room adequate. Crew helpful."
Cons: "The young child that screamed for the first two hours of the flight. The man in the seat behind me that coughed loudly constantly for 5.5 hours. No sleep on an overnight flight. Gluten free options not available for me and my wife. We tried to book these before the flight but we're not allowed access for this. Flight entertainment system froze and had to be reset, resulting in blank screens for the first 30 minutes or so."
Cons: "This review is about Air Canada from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Our flight was cancelled the flight for technical reason, without a notice. We found out when we got to the airport with four children. We were put on a later flight that also left Los Angeles later than the scheduled time. We arrived to Vancouver so late that we could not make the latest BC Ferry to Victoria that left at 9:00 pm. We lost our hotel reservation in Victoria. We were stranded in Vancouver till we could find a hotel that cost us an extra $600 (US dollars), an extra reservation for the ferry and lost a precious half a day of our vacation. When we complained about this wasted time and money Air Canada did not utter not even a clear simple apology. It offered a lousy discount on our next flight with the company, believing that we may ever use such an uncaring company"
Pros: "Decent crew. Decent collection of movies."
Cons: "Overall, this flight service from Montreal for Los Angeles (6 hrs flight) service was worse than the interconnection flight I have experienced in Europe (2 hrs flight). There is no snack provided on this journey and you have to pay for everything (snacks and even the headphones). On the European flights, the snack was provided multiple times for short duration of the flight."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Pros: "Great service, staff very pleasant!"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."
Cons: "Only told after tickets purchased, that a visa was needed to change planes in Canada! This information needs to be provided prior to purchase. I paid one-third the cost of the ticket to cancel it and then had to book another ticket closer to departure which was more expensive. Have never heard of such a thing. I live overseas and but had a valid U.S. visa for my travel, but couldn't change planes without applying tor a temporary resident visa which takes longer to obtain than the time before I needed to fly. Very upset and disappointed. Will certainly avoid purchasing from Air Canada again."
Pros: "flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not of good quality, had too much spice and salt. Fruit was a little too hard to cut. Toilets trash was not cleaned from previous flight. She Asian movies were same as in the previous flight. Need to provide more choices on SE Asian movies."
Pros: "North American flights are definitely not as comfortable as in Asian flights"
Pros: "Was offered water frequently :-) at least didn't have to ask or pay for it. Entertainment was offered. Limited choices."
Cons: "There was no announcement for boarding and we found out only when we ASKED personally. Nothing on the board, nothing through speakers. Smaller aircraft for this leg of the journey, not to blame, but seats are old and need refurbishing. They're not torn or anything but not comfortable at all. Restroom very small and uncomfortable like a truck stop. Always a line at the door."
Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Pros: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
Cons: "I could not checkin online and had to arrive really early at the airport so the agent could do it at the counter because Air Canada's system screwed up my ticket."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, no leg room"
Cons: "This site allowed me to book a CANCELED flight. I found out 20 hours before my scheduled flight that I was on an 11:20pm flight not a 7pm flight."
Pros: "everything is Ok."
Cons: "space is too small."
Pros: "very quick ride. Service was fast and efficient,"
Cons: "those who had carry on bags and had no room to store in the overhead had their bags loaded in cargo at no cost This is very annoying for those of us to pay for luggage. I see this all the time and very frustrated about this issue."
Cons: "Up to the last minute didn't advise flight was to be delayed. We board the plane late . Then brought bak to gate because of mecánical problem. Flight reschedule at 7.30 next morning. Had to organize on my own amother flight more acceptable and will leave 2 days late. No support for cab to go back home No voucher issued. The worst service ever. Was traveling with a pet."
Pros: "Love the look of the Halifax Airport after its renovations , brighter than it used to be, Check-in and boarding went very quickly The plane took on extra fuel just n case we had a layover in Toronto because of poor weather but that didn't happen"
Cons: "The possibility of a layover in Toronto because of poor weather lol"
Pros: "Good service...plane clean....attendants very attentive to all passengers!"
Cons: "I wish there were movies available to watch or purchase to watch. It was a 3 hour flight and I feel at that length of a flight a movie would help to pass the time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat, bad entertainment."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
Pros: "crew was polite"
Cons: "when i bought the tickets we weren't told that the baggage and food wasn't included and I had to pay for it (US$100 or the baggagge alone) we were changed to a different craft and could't choose my seats in thiis craft they seat us all separated, when i had already chosen our sits in the former craft they didn't sit us together when we asked for it at the counter we were 1.5 hours waiting inside the airplane , so i lost my bus to Santa Barbara we weren't given any snack for the delay"
Cons: "Extremely tight space."
Pros: "Why did we have to pay for head phones?? No included food what so ever!! Not even peanuts or a cookie. Why try to make me buy everything after I paid a full price?? The seats were crowded, every person walking in the aisle brushed against my shoulder. Air Canada, never again"
Pros: "The friendly service."
Cons: "When my baggage arrived a zippered pocket was open and a an antique compass that my father (who just passed away) left me was taken. I contacted Air Canada who said that they couldn't do anything about it, they only allow claims for lost baggage. I was heartbroken, and there is nothing Air Canada can do about securing passengers baggage from thieves. Very disappointed with the lack of support with this issue."
Pros: "Tv screens. On time arrival even though we left late. Not Stingy on beverages."
Cons: "Ineffecient boarding process. Walk to ticket counter from parking was a distance Walk from ticket counter to checked in luggage drop off was ridiculously long Seperated my wife and kids and myself on the plane even though we booked together. I had to ask people to switch seats with us on the flight. Refused to help with this. Money making ploy. Not classy or respectful. I don't care if we don't get to pick out seats but at least set us up together."
Cons: "We were not on this flight. We ended up being routed through Ottawa. See comment above."
Pros: "No entertainment beyond ipod rental..."
Cons: "Not enough time (1 hr.) for connection in Calgary... very stressful in USA Customs line and subsequent USA security line... baggage did not make flight and still not received in 38 hours... difficult start to vacation."
Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."
Pros: "No leg room. Very stiff seats"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "Linda was quite rude and aggressive. She would often hush me with her finger or ignore me when I would talk to her. It made me reconsider flying with air Canada"
Pros: "The gate crew and the ticketing crew tried hard to be helpful. The Air Canada system did not support them. At 4:50 pm, after over an hour of delay, it was announced at the gate that the flight was cancelled, that we had to pick up our luggage, and that we needed to talk with a ticket agent. At 5 pm I talked to a ticket agent who said that something was being done to accommodate us but that there was no information on the computer system. I should come back at 5:30 pm. I did and people were being told the same thing. At 6:00 pm, after having discovered that there was a WestJet plane leaving at 7 pm, I was told by the ticket agent that the system was still not showing me. I left an bought a ticket on WestJet and arrived in Toronto at 8 pm eastern. I am now looking for a refund."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything extra."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment so I really can't rate either of those things"
Pros: "I volunteered to be bumped and was well compensated. Crew was friendly, Halifax airport staff even more so."
Cons: "No food was offered. Quality of entertainment was mediocre. Although it was asked that we put on our seat belts, it was never confirmed we were going into ordinary turbulence. You don't want to feel like it's urgent."
Cons: "flight was late to arrive. waited 15 mins to talk to gate attendant and about the connecting flight. was told it was ok. when we arrived had less then 20 mins to run from terminal 7 to 2 and go thru security all over again. no one at the gate to help direct."
Pros: "we boarded on time, and the flight was uneventful. David's Tea is now avaialble for purchase. great price and although small good selection."
Cons: "All items are now up for purchase- except for soft drinks and juice."
Pros: "They Valet my carry on bag at the boarding gate and it was at the carousel by the time I got there."
Cons: "The actual size of a carry on seems to be in dispute. To fit one into the "measurer" at the airport is so tight, but there has been no problem and plenty of room in the overhead bin. I guess they are trying to force people into the $25 charge for a checked bag, not a surprise."
Pros: "Goood crew"
Cons: "Bumpy landing"
