Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Everything was seamless and i have no complaints. My return flight was cancelled amd i was automatically put on a different flight, and instead of waiting more than 2 hours from boston to get to canada, i was put on an earlier flight for which i am thankful for. However we couldnt take off as delta was clogging up the way to the runaway so ended up waitimg an hour to taje off which was ridiculous. Hope delta hires more ground crew so that others arent inconvenienced in the future."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "i loved the idea of a direct flight from Vancouver to Boston, the convenience of which made other things irrelevant."
Cons: "The snacks served (a tiny bag of pretzels) were a bit meager, especially since I had gone west on Jet Blue, which serves unlimited snacks in a good variety, but that's a minor thing. I don't like checking in at an automated kiosk, which was frustrating, and took me a while to figure out (I am not of the digital generation). The first human contact I had was with the person who scanned my boarding pass. The flight was completely full, which is never a comfortable situation in coach class."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Immigration was painfully slow and why getting checked again when just coming from another plane? wait time for luggage far too long seems an airport issue same movies"
Pros: "We flew to and from Tokyo in premium economy. The staff was friendly and multilingual. We appreciated the meals, each of which had a choice of Western or Japanese style; the overnight hospitality packs, which included a pillow and blanket, eye mask, earplugs, toothbrush, and comfy socks; and the unusual international movie options. Each flight kept more or less to schedule."
Cons: "The seat were roomy enough, but not as comfortable as we might like. Announcements took forever in three languages—I'd edit down. The breakfast rice congee was flavorless. One of our entertainment screens kept freezing. All minor gripes."
Pros: "I travel a lot. I have to say both Air Canada and Kayak did a excellent job to remind me via email and text message to check-in online 24 hrs before my departure, never fail. Kayak also keeps on updating me about my flight on time or not, gate number etc. As a traveler, these features are very important. keep up with the good work!"
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Cons: "Still waiting to try to get on a flight via the standby option, and even that flight keeps getting delayed and the gate was changed. The whole trip has been a clusterf***."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to new regulation eTA. why not warning people when purchase the ticket?"
Cons: "First it was delayed because of the aircraft, then it was delayed some more because of the bags on the plane but no passengers - bag owners . Then it was delayed because the ramp crew could not be found to remove the bags. Then it was delayed because of the weather ..."
Cons: "Both flights were over 1 hour late. Weather was fine so difficult to understand delays."
Pros: "Airline provided a flight to Toronto, with reasonable amenities and boarding process."
Cons: "Had to load my own suitcase on the luggage belt - I am elderly, with back issues, traveling alone. Attendant was courteous and helped me, but stated that staff "doesn't do it any more" because of safety issues. No help will be given in the future. Plane left two hours late - I missed my connection. Was given a stipend for an overnight stay, but no explanation was given about the delay. Staff couldn't tell me if my checked baggage was on the plane the next morning. I probably won't fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "Their staff is extremely friendly and helpful, but they can only do what is within corporate rules to help you. Their corporate policies are NOT GOOD!"
Cons: "Flying Air Canada is horrible! They nickel & dime you to the point of tears. They charged me $15 per leg to make advanced seat assignments ($60 total) then changed my flights and put me in middle seats on two legs without asking me - I didn't find out until I was ready to board and they called my name to come to the gate desk! They also charge $33+ US to check one bag. If you go over the 50 lb weight limit they charge $100. By the time you add it all up, I could have flown on Delta through the US for less. Trying to get my seat selection fees reimbursed was very difficult; At the airport, they told me to go online and ask for a refund; Online, I couldn't find the way to get to the refund link; Called Customer service again, who gave me an 800# to call for a refund; the person on the 800 # told me I had to request it online but walked me through it to find the refund link; I filled in the online request and was told by automatic reply that Air Canada would investigate it and get back to me within 3-4 weeks. Ugh! No more Air Canada for me!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We got delayed, but this was not the fault of the airline. My bags were put on the wrong flight as well"
Cons: "Almost 2 hour delay in Halifax until 1:30 am but Air Canada lounge closed at 11 anyway."
Pros: "Small planes but still in seat screens. Good seat room."
Cons: "Pearson is awful. One of the slowest airports in the world."
Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"
Cons: "We miss the opportunity to order an appetizer on the flight; a fun part of any travel experience."
Cons: "Many of us were refused boarding on the connecting flight. They gave away our seats. I arrived at the transvfer counter50 minutes prior to the flight. I was first. Gave excuse that bag must go with me. Customs confirmed that this is AC not customs. To add insult, they flight to Montreal was late, the flight to Boston was late, and finally my bag NEVER was on either flight so there excuse was an out right lie. I missed half the weekend home in over a month. AC doesn't value my time and I don't value their service. Every time I go back to this airline I realized why I left. Going to Asia; don't get suckered into using this route. BTW a friend on PVG-YUL-BOS never made it as well. AC still using a CRJ200 that can't land in weather. NOT A BUSINESS CLASS EXPERIENCE."
Pros: "Good entertainment system and comfy seats for a regional flight."
Cons: "Confusion at boarding, delays and turbulence the whole ride so they did not serve beverages."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Had the flight delayed by 3+ hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours but no one was in much of a rush to get it going"
Cons: "There was a major winter storm on the way, and the flight should have been canceled like every other flight to Boston was. Long story short, we couldn't land in Boston due to the storm. So we flew not to Boston, but to Quebec City. They would not let us off the airplane. Eventually we flew back to Montreal where we started. More than 7 hours on a plane with no food, and they only offered us water. The flight should have been cancelled in the first place. That would have been a lot less stressful to deal with."
Pros: "It was excellent. Though due to snowfall, flight took off late due to de-icing but taking safety precautions is a best practice."
Pros: "This was my first time in Canada never been there before I had a great time until that one moment I had to deal with workers from air Canada except one agent at the ticketing desk....I had checked in online the day before however I had some card issues because they got shut down by my bank and due to the holiday in America I was unable to call my Bank prior to the airport....got to the airport and tried to explain that all I wanted to do was pay for my bag with cash ...but no one took the time out to listen each time i tried explaining myself I was send to a different location to join another line ....by the time I got to someone who was willing to listen my flight was closed ..her name was Aurora and gave me nothing but attitude when I explained my story......anyways finally got to ticketing and a met the only agent that day who exercise some level of customer service that day...if only I could remember her name ...sigh she went the extra mile because at this point I was frustrated and unsure if I would make it out of the country a sane person due to the amount of chaos I experienced prior. She got LISTENED .....SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN...got me on a new flight and went above an beyond to assist me that morning I was on the verge of a breakdown at that point all other staff member was very disgusting not only to my self but the other individuals who had mishaps that morning."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but only for an hour"
Cons: "AirCanada did not tell me that I needed a transit visa for Canada. So I couldn't board the flight. They also refused to reroute me or refund the ticket. They were not sympathetic or helpful."
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
Pros: "Pilot was able to make up for delayed departure and flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Plane needed better cleaning - Lots of stuff (food, paper, dirt) between the seats. Entertainment system not working properly - screen kept going blank."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stood out in Montreal or the flight to Boston, as better than average...meh"
Cons: "Our Swiss crew told us over the loudspeaker several times that "even if connecting we still need to get our luggage" which turned out to be false as our luggage was transferred to the Boston bound plane automatically... We were ushered out as a group to a connection security check which required electronic kiosks to be used for scanning our passports photos and fingerprints... They fraught with malfunctions then after waiting in line for s while we did the whole check all over again with s human security agent in s booth... There were only 2 security agents in the booths as well but there really needed to be several more to keep the line moving quicker... After security we walk directly out to departures but no mention of baggage claim, which was fine had we not been misinformed by Swiss initially... We ended up inquiring several times with SirCsnsda staff until it was clear Swiss had misinformed us."
Cons: "I did not take it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. They lost my baggage. TV in my seat didn't work and they didn't do anything about it."
Pros: "It left ontime and got me to where I needed to be."
Cons: "Pretzels are gross and dry. Jet Blue has much better snack choices. Overheard bins were really small on this small aircraft."
Pros: "For a small aircraft like that, it was really comfortable."
Cons: "No cookie."
Cons: "Our flight from Halifax to Los Angeles via Toronto should have left at 3:15 on Sunday so that we could arrive back in Los Angeles by 10:14 pm. Instead the flight was delayed and left 200 people stranded and waiting in line for customer service. Because I did not have cell service in Canada, I was forced to wait 2 hours in line only to have the agent at the counter make me talk to an agent on the phone. Prior to that, we were shocked that one of the only two agents at the counter left the counter to talk to people in line behind us instead of servicing the customers first come first serve. When I asked him to please return to the counter to help the next person in line, he mumbled that that was not what he wished to do. Meanwhile, all flights out of Toronto were fully booked that night. The delayed flight finally left at 1:30 am. Had Air Canada notified its customers about the 10 hour delay, we could have spent that time in Halifax. Both my husband and I were very disappointed in how AC handled the whole situation. Both the counter agents and the phone agent were unhelpful in offering us options."
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience , the whole travel"
Pros: "I enjoy flying and being in the air at high altitude in any air line. Away from everyone else and with a new family who are flying with me."
Cons: "The charge per bag is ridiculous. It should be included as part of fare paid. Understood another bag charge as a separate fee."
Cons: "The flight was late"
Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."
Cons: "Buttery pretzels in both directions that are way too buttery. Crew is never overly happy to be there."
Cons: "The screen at my seat did not function properly."
Pros: "Good service...plane clean....attendants very attentive to all passengers!"
Pros: "Fast boarding and takeoff"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
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: "crew very warm and welcoming"
Cons: "no leg space (I am six feet tall)"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was an ample amount of legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours!"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No wifi, sat next to 2 kids aged about 10, no supervision, spinning drinks."
Pros: "The crew members on the flight were alright."
Cons: "3 hour delays. I have never had an on time united experience."
Cons: "Doesnt make sense to sell tickets with conections so close that there is not enough time for migration issues and all the necessary stuff. I could not take the flight aqnd had to take one the next day."
Pros: "Everything was great Left on time. Arrived 20 minutes early. On both legs of the trip Thank u"
Cons: "Audio did not work well on demand, food costs money"
Pros: "Very meticulous pilots, very friendly and accommodating cabin crew"
Cons: "When we made reservations in February we opted for economy plus seating 8C and 8D on an Airbus A320. In June we received notice of a schedule and equipment change to a Boeing 737-300. I was not told or given the option to change seat assignments, and we were assigned middle and window seats 28E and 28F, which were torture, so narrow and almost no legroom. Why weren't we automatically assigned economy plus seats? Adding insult to injury I had to apply for a refund for the seat upgrade, which again should have been automatic. Seeing as how the return flight was code-shared with AirCanada, United did not give us the option to upgrade seating, so I was forced to call United, waited almost 40 minutes so that they could give me the AirCanada booking reference number which then enabled me to upgrade seats via AirCanada's website. Lucky thing too because there weren't many economy plus seats left. I consider myself to be a savvy traveler, but there were too many unknowns and hoops to jump through in order to get proper seating. Plus the extra fees for premier access and baggage are exorbitant. Finally, I bought an egg white flatbread snack which was awful. I don't see how United gets away with this treatment, it certainly doesn't make for an enjoyable experience when vacationing. In fact we are seriously considering not taking any more vacations requiring flying. We're happy that airlines are profitable, but not at the expense of comfort or navigating options that require very sophisticated knowledge."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Process of going through customs in Halifax instead of Newark was very efficient. I didn't order food or use inflight entertainment."
Pros: "I got home safe."
Cons: "The customer service was mediocre. The selection of complementary beverage was minimal compared to other airlines. The staff are disgruntled and sometimes rude. There was always some sort of mechanical problems with the plane going to Puerto Plata and coming back. On the way to DR we had to divert to Miami because of problems with Navigation. They made us wait seven hours and gave us a voucher for food at the last minute. People had already bought food. I would not recommend United to none of my associates."
Cons: "One hour delayed departure after an already too long 3.5 hour layover."
Cons: "Awful communication from united about the delays. It was 'on time' up until after we were supposed to depart. Initially delayed a half hour then an hour then so on and so on. I live 5 minutes from the airport and could have handled differently with communication. United is THE WORST"
Pros: "the personnel were polite and personable and eager to help"
Pros: "Bumpy but spectacular ride through a thunderstorm on descent."
Cons: "Flight assistants were not particularly helpful with our baby. Same complaint about baggage, but on this longer flight, why make us pay extra for food and entertainment too?!"
Cons: "Snack was terrible"
Pros: "goos seat"
Cons: "There was no food what so ever while business got full dinner and the entertainment was very poor"
Cons: "Wouldn't let me bring my bag even though there was plenty of space."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and polite"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour and they had us waiting in the airplane which was really hot. Also, the seats were really uncomfortable."
Cons: "Arrived 5 hours late"
Pros: "Humor of pilot in Boston."
Cons: "Runway construction in Boston delayed flight out of Washington. No healthy snacks- Cheetos."
Pros: "Safe fligjt"
Cons: "Seats are too small. And I'm used to flying jet blue where everything is free. Including top movies."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about the flight"
Cons: "Layover in New Jersey was horrible. My flight was delayed 4x, and arrived at my destination 4 hours behind schedule. When I asked customer service for more information regarding my flight, the staff was rude, did not offer a resolution or give an explanation for the delay. A little customer service could have went a long way to make the situation better. I am overall not pleased with the customer service I received and was disappointed with the delay. I don't think I will ever fly united again due to the customer service."
Pros: "Some staff were,helpful. Handicap was mostly good& friendly.movies donated for our time was a nice,gesture,but not for my,discomfort & trouble."
Cons: "The staff @the gate were uniformed & if it wasn't their fault but Boston's Logan construction @ airport someone dropped the ball. I won't go United again.5 hours is ridiculous & I deserve a refund."
Pros: "Fast trip"
Cons: "Too small the sitting position and seats"
Cons: "The doors closed 15 minutes prior to when I expected them to, causing about five of us to miss our flight."
Pros: "The plane were nice and service was good"
Cons: "They charge me $25 baggage fee even though I had mileage plus card which allow one free checked baggage"
Pros: "Friendly staff, easy boarding. They got me where I needed to go, and on time!"
Cons: "I'm disappointed in their in-flight entertainment system. Download the app and check out all of the amazing options they have, then try to use it & good luck. It took me 5 hours to watch 20 min of the movie I chose. It just kept cutting out, then would say entertainment service isn't offered, etc. Why are airlines going away from personal TVs & instead having you bring your own device which may or may not work with the service up there? There was also NO room. I'm not a big person, but I didn't even have space to put my bad under the seat in front of me & sit comfortably. I flew back on JetBlue with the same amount of stuff and had ample room. It was interesting to see the difference."
Pros: "Food vouchers were nice. $20 did not cover lunch and dinner for that day. So it coupd have been more like $40."
Cons: "The flight was long and packet. The outlets didn't work, Wi-Fi didn't work. There was no entertainment system. I just had to try and fall asleep, or stare at the seat in front of me. They also changed everyone's seats last minute. The snack they have was terrible. And I'm not picky. It got me to my destination. That's about it."
Pros: "Flight took off before scheduled departure time.l"
Cons: "Passengers were rude as they walked down the isle Several times I was hit by a person walking by me without any apologies."
Pros: "Stroopwafel and efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Very tightly packed seats; flight attendant complaint about collecting trash from outside vendors. I guess the obvious alternative is just to leave it in the seat!"
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Couldn't change flight and it was delayed."
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked and I had a wonderful empty seat in the middle so that I could sit in the window"
Cons: "There was almost no legroom. Having to pay for entertainment for a 45 min flight."
Pros: "It was on time and a little early"
Cons: "I had to pay to watch any movies which I didn't and service was aloof."
Pros: "I didnit like The flight to be 3 hr late. The last hr waiting on The plane to depart No wątek or snack"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra 155 for a seat in back of 1st class!!"
Pros: "On time in spite of a late start Gate attendants were nice and helpful Comfortable as is possible in economy without spending a lot more money. Food (pretzels and drinks) as good as possible without spending more money. (I remember the good old days when you got much more in seating and food for your money)"
Cons: "This flight I had a window seat and I felt like I couldn't get up to stretch my legs or use the bathroom. (I am 70 and 4 hours is too long to sit) I usually get an isle seat but ALWAYS have to give up my bag at the gate - my bag which you tell me I can bring ON the plane with me. I do not like having to waste time claiming my bag that you told me I could have with me on the plane. I can pay $25 for that privilege!! The flight attendants always seem like they have their defenses up. One even held up the people trying to board so she could serve a drink to someone in first class. REALLY?? They couldn't wait till the plane was loaded?? I gave this flight a 'good' rating because it was mostly as good as it is going to get with economy passengers needs stripped to the bare minimum."
Cons: "The in-flight app doesn't work for Android."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too tight. $8 sends a little high for the amount of commercials one has to suffer though on the tv"
Pros: "Overall the service was great. I don't like being charged for having minimal luggage charges. The seats seemed worn and very limited space. The same amount for Econmy plus"
Cons: ". I don't like being charged for having minimal luggage charges. The seats seemed worn and very limited space. The same amount for Econmy plus"
Pros: "Made it safely from point A to point B."
Cons: "Two hour delay with no reason given. Weather wasn't an issue."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Pros: "Plane was clean."
Cons: "My initial flight was cancelled, then they pushed everyone on to this flight which was then delayed more than 5 hours, then we sat on the tarmac for another hour, and since they crammed 2 flights of passengers on the plane they forced everyone to check their carry-on bags. The plane had 0 TVs or entertainment and the leg room was nonexistent. And on top of all of that, the customer service rep's at the gate were the least helpful people ever."
Pros: "The service is not close ro KOREAN AIR ON THE PLANE. The plane is old . The cres is tired.."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and even got there 30 minutes ahead of schedule! Boston airport was excellent with bags already on the carrousel before we got to the baggage area!"
Cons: "Arrived well before the recommended 1 hour in advance for the domestic flight. Lines to move through their security wrapped around the terminal on multiple floors. Called customer service for assistance and they reported there was nothing they could do. Reminded them that it is their responsibility to manage these types of issues such as telling passenger to arrive 2 hours ahead if they have been aware of this chronic issue. They told me they had no way of contacting the airline staff at the airport to assist us Completely unprofessional, poor customer care and inefficient. Will not be flying with United out of Newark NJ again. If it weren't for the friendly passenger in line who let us move ahead we would have missed the flight. Just made it before the gate to the aircraft closed."
Pros: "Short flight and ran on time."
Cons: "While waiting at Newark on my layover, there was nobody at the gate to assist with seating assignment (which had not been assigned as my flight was oversold)... I didn't get my seat until stepping onto the plane/bridge. While there was nobody available to even tell us what was going on regarding seat assignments until 10 minutes before boarding, there were 4-6 United employees sitting in chairs right next to our gate chit chatting (being paid to do absolutely nothing), who couldn't even tell us what was going on (what a waste of resources)... Even the manager took 15 minutes to carefully set up the line walkways coming in to customer service... like it had never been done before and she had to reinvent the wheel."
Pros: "The flight attendant could not have been better. For the first time in my life, I had to ask for a seatbelt extender (and sit sideways-ish in the seat), and she very discretely got me one. The previous flight that day, I fit in the seat just fine (as usual) and had some extra length on my normal belt. This seat was definitely the smallest I'd ever been in, but I was thankful to that woman for being SUPER understanding and doing other things throughout the flight that made me more comfortable."
Cons: "Just that the seats seemed to have shrunk during my layover. Otherwise, this airline was fantastic!"
Pros: "Plane left on time and got in early. Flight crew unusually pleasant. Service fine."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and had hoped to get an aisle seat. When none of those were available, I chose a window seat. However, when I took my seat, I was sitting next to a wall, not a window. Bummer"
