Again, at Zurich, I was I initially unable to get my connecting flight to Australia, or a seat allocated, because ' the 2 airlines systems do not connect'. After pressing for sometime I seat number and boarding pass was produced - I know not how but no choice of seat. I failed to mention on the Manchester leg. That online check-in was not working and so it wasn't until I got to Man airport that i learned of the problems and flight uncertainties. In 40+ years of flying this was my worst experience with a major European airline
I don’t like this lines because my flight from Zurich to wasaw was canceled and I spend 8 h in Zurich airpot for nothing
Flight was fine but the air flow was insufficient. After landing, we waited an hour for a gate to open up with no air conditioning and a burning smell in the cabin.
Emirates service is much better
You have set and are maintaining excellent standards; keep it up!!!
I'm flew Swiss for the first time and like it
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Kayak did not notify us. We found out by accident. There was no customer service from kayak. We had to solve with with the airline"
Cons: "I fell sick and my doctor advised against flying. Tried calling Swiss Air and JustFly.com: 6 calls back and forth and 7 hours on hold, no help. Finally got advised on driving to the airport to make the flight change at the Swiss Air counter at O’Hare. The representative told me to bring a note from doctor to switch flights. I did the next day. The same representative looked me in the eye after advising the day before and said there’s nothing she could do. Why make an elderly sick person drive to the airport again if you know already you cannot help??Absolutely terrible experience, no help from the airline or travel agency. Total loss of the full price of the ticket."
Cons: "After showing passport to get boarding pass, had to line up to show passport again to get boarding pass stamped at gate-no instructions, just a line.. Why!? Poor communication."
Cons: "We were happy with everthing"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful. The wine was free and each seat had it's own screen with a good assortment of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The food could be much better. Although coming from Sicily it's tough to compare."
Cons: "Legspace in economy class was probably good back in 1975, but in 2019 not acceptable anymore"
Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage. Annoyed in the first place to have to pay for 2 checked bags on international flight, but to have to go into three separate lines in order to do so was pouring salt into a wound."
Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."
Pros: "This was a 12 hour flight that didn’t feel like 12 hours. They movies and other entertainment was very good with new and older movies that didn’t disappoint. The food was great all the way through to the farewell piece of chocolate."
Cons: "The seats on this flight were very tight. I am 5’8 and felt super cramped. The seats themselves were not that bad just small and not a lot of space. If you fly with them don’t expect to kee anything under the seat with you. Also the whole boarding process is a big cluster! There is no real organization to the line or who they are boarding. Make sure you get in the line quickly or you could be waiting awhile."
Pros: "On time; smooth boarding process; lights dimmed for a reasonably long time."
Cons: "NO legroom on the Zurich to Dusseldorf flight."
Pros: "Again boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were terrible"
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and professional, on top of the nice plane condition, which made the trip very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food standard seemed to be lowered a little bit, but still very well prepared."
Pros: "Nothing stood out"
Cons: "Nothing Stood out"
Cons: "Our flight to Zurich was canceled and we had to take 3 flights to get to San Diego instead of 2. It was a huge headache. None of our flights were even with Swiss."
Pros: "i liked the food and the crew. they were nice."
Cons: "the flight was good. nothing to not like."
Pros: "Food and crew were great, very friendly and perfect with timing of serving meals"
Cons: "The boarding kind of scrambled. The head phone connection bad for my headphones, I had sound only in my left ear. The screen had very poor resolution but selection of movies was goood."
Pros: "Not very much to like. No effort to enhance customer service, accommodate customer needs. I fly a lot of regional and international airlines, was truly underwhelmed."
Cons: "I landed at Zurich airport at 6am with an 11 hour wait and tried to get onto an earlier us bound flight. The ground crew were awful and rude!. The dint make any effort to smile, look at me in the face or ask how I was doing!. Instead she took one look at my ticket and said “ sorry you bought through an agent, I can’t help you”. When I tried to ask if in future it is advisable to book through Swiss airlines directly, the customer service agent looked at me and said “ that’s your problem”- then she turned to her friend and kept talking! Honestly! . The airport terminal E is grey, drab and boring. No TV and only 2 hour of WiFi. I was told I had to pay to use one of their lounges just to get a recliner chair to lay my head for 11 hours. I felt like I was in a holding cell- and the flight was delayed by an hour, had a gate change that they dint tell us till less than 1hour- boy was I glad to leave Zurich!. If that is Swiss hospitality, they have a long way to go. Save your money and use another airline. You will be much happier- trust me."
Pros: "Swiss service relayable"
Pros: "Food is excellent... nice variety plus dessert. Everything was hot & delicious & used metal utensils which was much nicer than plastic."
Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Prompt and business like"
Cons: "As a business passenger I was told to go to the Avianca lounge this lounge is not Swiss standards the man sitting next to me was in a t shirt and swim shorts I started flying all over since 1952 most in the back so sorry to see such relaxed protocols"
Cons: "Business class service The hostess forgot my request twice. ..."
Pros: "Very pleasant and friendly attendants. Food good, you'll never feel hungry! Love the chocolates!"
Pros: "The new aircraft"
Cons: "Lavatory wasn't clean enough"
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"
Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"
Cons: "No USB charger in seat"
Pros: "The crew made the right call after the Swiss computers shutted down"
Cons: "Boarding problem. But I have to congratulate the crew for their efforts to overcome the problem in the best possible way"
Pros: "The Swiss airline bit was about an hour late. Weather etc. But such things happen. The flight itself was fine. They even served food and a beer."
Cons: "The queues at Heathrow for passport control were long. The non-EU q was awful. Luckily the tube was running all night on those lines we needed."
Pros: "Everything was great. The staff did a really nice job at making us all feel comfortable and they were eager to help with our needs."
Pros: "Excellent pilot, very smooth fly and landing, good comunication, friendly , good food, nice crew,"
Cons: "A little more water, and too little nag wait in Zurich for connecting flight"
Pros: "I'm very satisfied with Swiss airline excellent service starting from the flight attenders very professional friendly excellent food .if I would recommend this airline absolutely 100%.."
Pros: "The best in flight service. I've taken Swiss air multiple times from Zurich to LA and I will never take another airline. The food is great, plenty of snacks and drinks. Great entertainment and the cabin crew treats you very well."
Cons: "Checking in we had a nasty representative, but other than that, all was well"
Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."
Pros: "Food was adequate for economy. Free drinks on trans-Atlantic flights are a nice perk. Cabin crew is friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to incoming aircraft. It was probably not the airline's fault. Berlin Tegel gate area is too small for international flight - not enough seats and nowhere else to wait after security."
Pros: "Flight attendants were sympathetic"
Cons: "The first flight was cancelled after we sat on the plane for over an hour. We all had to wait in line at the transfer desk. Then our second flight attempt- boarding was awful, total chaos. The flight was delayed because boarding was so long. Then once we landed late, there was an issue deboarding the flight with the stairs and we were stuck for 40 mins for this process."
Pros: "The crew were great. They did the best they could given the circumstances. We got a compensation voucher because of all the trouble on the flight. That's something, though it's not super useful for the occasional traveler on SWISS (2000 miles and more bonus miles or CHF 50 travel voucher)."
Cons: "The plane arrived in Boston 50 minutes late, because we left Zurich late. That was because we were waiting on people to make a connection. Which was probably because their SWISS flight was late. Why are all SWISS flights running late??? There was no coffee or tea on the flight because there was a problem with the electrical system of the hot water machines. That could have been fixed before we left.... The entertainment system is clunky, and it didn't help that it had to be rebooted (took 20 minutes !?!?) in the middle of the flight to deal with some 'isssues'. The big boxes with the entertainment system underneath the seats are not fun either, they really cut into legroom. In general, it seems this plane is in need of a bit of an overhaul and maintenance. And whatever happened to Swiss punctuality? I'm not used to SWISS flights being late. You can do much better than that, you used to!"
Cons: "The service was terrible.. I asked fora napkin and the stewardess got mad at me. Dinner wasn't good and the breakfast was horrible. Everything cramped in a little box. One cup of coffee with one sugar and one cream. Seats were very tight,no room to move. I have always used Swiss but this was such a bad experience, I will reconsider for next time. I think I paid too much Money for what I got! Heidi M Krakoski"
Pros: "That I was able to get the front seat with the extra legroom at no extra charge. I also liked that the take off and landing were smooth. As was the flight in general. Also, the Swiss chocolate was good."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable! The overnight flight from Boston to Zurich was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever experienced. There is no legroom. And the seats are incredibly narrow. When the person in front of me had their seat reclining I had even less room. Horrible. The only reason the flight from Zurich to Boston wasn't quite as bad was because I was able to get the seat by the exit aisle with extra legroom. The food was terrible. It didn't taste like real food. It looked and tasted totally artificial. Overall, a very poor experience."
Pros: "All of it Plane was only a third full so"
Cons: "To get on the plane via bus"
Flight was delayed because it took a really long time to get the plane ready. Boarding was not well-organized. Sandwich with zucchini for breakfast is certainly cheap and has an interesting taste, but not a great combo.
I will never use kayak again. Their confirmation numbers are useless to the airlines. They cannot represent the airline. I was blocked from getting a seat assignment when I booked the flight. Their service is useless. I will also never book a flight serviced by another airline. Confirmation numbers are unique to each airline. The only one that matters is the one assigned by the airline servicing the flight. In my experience, Kayak doesn’t exist. It was just a front. I was forced to deal with a company called Chat Deal. Never heard of them. Never want to deal with them again. Awful.
Poor seating, poor leg room
On my way from Denver to Munich the flight was delayed. The pilot himself said he couldn't explain the reason for the 1 hour delay. The delay resulted in almost everyone on the flight missing their connections, including me and my husband. No effort was made to help passengers with tight connections to get off the plane and to their gates faster. After an international flight, the last thing you want is an 8-hour layover where you've no choice but to remain awake and exhausted for an unhealthy amount of time. As a pitiful expression of apology, Lufthansa gave us a 10 euro voucher to use in the Munich airport--not even enough for a full, hot meal. Not to mention that checking in for both my flight to and from my destination city was very stressful because of an abundance of travelers and a clear understaffing on the airline's side. Even though I came two hours early to check in for my return flight, I only had ten minutes at the gate before it was boarded. The whole experience was rushed and stressful and inefficient. The worst part, though, was that one of my checked bags was returned to me with my clothes sticking out of it and some speciality cheese I bought entirely missing. I have also found it really difficult to get in touch with the Lufthansa customer service. They claim in emails with my flight information that I especially requested that my reservation number be withheld from me (I never requested this). The loss of this number has made it nearly impossible for me to register complaints without calling the airline and wasting hours of time. I would greatly reconsider ever booking with this airline again.
It was not Lufthansa. It was a cramped United flight. We have health problems and had to pay $472 extra just to get a better seat. The temperature in the plane was freezing. Plus our luggage was not put on the plane and 12 days later, we still don’t have it.
I missed the flight!!!! , they left me !
Pros: "I had a connection flight which would not be for another 11 hours so I left the airport to get some sleep coming back the same carry-on I have with me now cannot come with me they want me to pay 40euro. In the meantime the flight is 40% empty and plenty of over head and yes is the same size of plane I came in the first place. However the agent was nice after I explain my situation she not charges me."
Cons: "Same airline coming from one place have different methods it’s a bit confusing."
Pros: "I missed my flight."
Cons: "Helped me get a different flight. I got zero help getting another flight. Or any credit."
Cons: "It was good enough."
Pros: "It was an uneventful flight. The entertainment system worked well and food was good."
Cons: "The lights kept coming on every few minutes making sleep nearly impossible."
Pros: "Cabin staff were cheerful and helpfully"
Cons: "We had 4 luthansa flights in a week I appreciate that we were given a drink one up on BA ! However I am trying not to be picky every snack was chocolate 26 grames per 100g not great for a diabetic !!!! It would be lovely to have a savoury option"
Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"
Pros: "Food and crew were good"
Cons: "The seats recline back so far that it really intrudes into the space of the person behind you. At one point the guy in front of me reclined back so far and fast it slammed my eReader and spilled my coffee. Also the touch screen media app does not work well on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew excellent...seats small and not too comfortable for business class."
Cons: "Due to a delayed flight the night before, we were rescheduled and consequently missed another flight. Nothing was done about this since it was a separate trip. We had to pay another $1300 for new airline tickets to get back to the US."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Got rebooked and have changed gates 6 times and flight delayed due to no crew."
Pros: "Nice crew members. Even though it was a short flight, they served a snack and drinks."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I will go again with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The service on board was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding got a little bit chaotic for families with small children."
Pros: "Comfort, flight on time."
Pros: "Flight was good. Boarding was delayed, but the time was made up during flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "It is always about baggage. Bags with priority tags should atleast be sent on a "priority". With LH this never is the case. Priority tagged bags are sometimes the last ones to come on the belt."
Cons: "Having to go through passport control and security a second time took too much time for the connection between flights."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Flight was over booked and they changed us the seats"
Pros: "High quality service, attentive flight attendances, as always on Lufthansa."
Cons: "The food was a bit over cooked and dry but overall excellent service."
Pros: "Food, drinks, crew hel;pful"
Cons: "Boarding was not orderly, stupid system of delayed displaying of gate assignment"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Pros: "The entertainment system included ability to access cameras on the tail and belly of aircraft which was interesting to watch takeoff and landing. Crew was great, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Seat cushions lacked deep cushions, seats were too close together, could not stand up. Boarding was not done by rows, so took longer than usual."
Pros: "Movies / Food"
Cons: "Seat location. Delay time boarding."
Pros: "Seat and service on board"
Cons: "It was difficult to watch the movies. Some of them were stuck and couldn't be played. Only after a while they "unlocked"."
Pros: "The service and food was excellent"
Cons: "The seats are too close together like most airlines but for a long flight this is very uncomfortable"
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Cons: "The special meal I got was not the same as I ordered."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of personal space on plane. Couldn't eat my meals without rubbing elbows with the guy in front. Not enough room for my under seat bag."
Pros: "Boarding was okay, we still had the rush towards the beginning and the concern is always finding overhead space"
Cons: "Apparently if you're not awake when they ask you your choice, and it comes time to pass out food and you're awake... You don't get any. Really horrible. Food being handed out, you're hungry and not even an offer. They simply skip you."
Pros: "Plane was clean and service was great."
Pros: "The crew was working hard, most were extremely nice and helpful. Their service was excellent. I enjoyed the food and drinks. The plane was clean and looked well-maintained. Most of the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight from Munich to Charlotte: I do not fly that frequently (just only about 1 or 2 times per year - usually with Lufthansa) so I had no idea that as an Economy class passenger I cannot use the Business class bathroom. I admit my mistake for violating this etiquette. There was no line formed so I just used it, but as I was leaving the toilet a stewardess grabbed my arm and sternly made me aware of my trespassing. She was very professional and I believe it was not her intention; however, she made me feel very stupid for not realizing that the Business class toiled is for the Business class customers only. Don't get me wrong, if I paid premium for my fare I would probably expect less crowded toilets too. In my opinion, this unwritten rule should be made more explicit to the Economy class passengers, as nobody likes to feel embarrassed by mistakenly wandering into an exclusive club they don't belong to. I know there are separating curtains, but they were open. I saw a line forming in the Economy section so my next instinct was to go a different direction, which led me to the Business section. I really needed to use the bathroom, so I did not think of the proper etiquette at the moment."
Pros: "free music, video. Plenty to eat and drink. Crew was friendly, accommodating and kept the plane clean on a long fully booked flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic but there wasn't much room to line up a full load of 747 passengers. They didn't have my vegetarian meals as requested. In one case they rounded me up a business class substitute but in the other case all I had to eat was bread and the dessert."
Pros: "Senator member , business flight ... And everything wrong that can happen happened ...cancelled flight , delayed flight , then again delay ,then me losing the flight cause of their delay , waiting in the airport for 8 hours ... Hate you Lufthansa , never coming back"
Pros: "I used to fly lufthansa for my europe travel for work about 15 years ago a lot and thought in recent years it may not have been as good but these flights made me appreciate Lufthansa anew. Crew extremely helpful and polite, always followed up to any requests. Instead of barking at us like United or American crew, they went out of their way to help my daughter get a makeshift icepack for some very painful bumps she got during our vacation. Crew also kept the bathrooms clean from time to time, which was a welcome relief for such a long flight. Desk staff/service desk also was helpful in directing us during the 5 hr layover to things at the airport itself that we could do. They also helped reprint the boarding pass and write down the baggage tags when security made me lose those by separating my wallet and boarding passes into mutliple bins."
Cons: "Phone service. When I tried to book my seats and meals, the lady kept getting things wrong, and ended up not getting me the seats I had specifically ended up asking for. So, when I arrived at the airport and printed my boarding cards, those were seats I did NOT want and all the service desks insisted that's what I asked for. No low carb meal option was surprising. Meal service sometimes felt like too close to each other else too far apart from snacks - didn't feel like we had enough time to digest and get some sleep, while at other times we were seeking out snacks.Overall good quality of food however."
Pros: "Service confort timimg"
Pros: "Food, drink and entertainment are very good."
Cons: "Did not care if I made my connecting flight or help me to understand if I could make it, seats are terribly overbooked and crammed. Many people visibly aggravated and mobility compromised due to seats,"
Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
Pros: "The ease and non-confusion of the boarding process"
Cons: "There wasn't much entertainment options on this flight"
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, enough leg room, but no reclining seats"
Pros: "good seats."
Cons: "crowded smelly gate, horrible seats, overcrowded bus out to the plane, which was late. to be fair, this is probably not Lufthansa's fault, unless their arrangement with Tel-Aviv airport always results in these awful gate assignments. we then stood outside on the tarmac on those external roll-up stairways. for a good 15 minutes. waiting to get inside the plane. Full sun exposure in the middle of summer. no sign of the crew. WHY."
Pros: "this flight was very good, all right."
Cons: "Movies need to be have better selection - are allways same, no pleasant movies."
I am a senior and I was travelling with 2 other friends and they got their email for check in and I didn’t then when we went to checkin my boarding pass had me as standby so you can imagine that I was in a panic wondering if I was coming home to Ottawa airport with them or not. I finally was able to get help at the counter and she was very helpful, but this worrying takes all the fun out of a great vacation. I certainly will not be flying anywhere again. I know this isn’t only Air Canada’s problem but thanks for letting me rant.😁
the only real issue was baggage claim. we waited 45 minutes for our bags to arrive, but they did arrive, which was good.
The US Customs/immigration step at Montreal creates a mess. Your checked bag must be xrayed and cleared to enter "U.S soil" (which is still in Canada) which makes for huge delays, confusion and mishandling of bags. My carry-on, which I checked at the gate at Air Canada's request, never got cleared. So I arrived in Atlanta where my bag was not at baggage claim. Nor was there an agent to make a claim to, and it was not even 5 p.m. I had to go all the way up to the Air Canada check in desk in the International Terminal to try to find an employee to whom I could report the missing bag. An agent for AC had to be called to respond, there was no one at their check in desk. The person who finally did talk to me made ME send a photo of my baggage ticket and boarding pass to his supposed phone number, which he said he would use to start a claim. This never happened, I got no confirmation that a trace had been started and I had to call AC the next day.
Trip from hell, sorry to say. Halifax - Toronto left late (the new normal…). Toronto - Austin cancelled. Re-booked through Chicago. Flight left more than an hour late. Chicago - Austin left two hours late. Arrived in Austin around 1 am. Ended up traveling - Airport to airport - 15 hours. Food in Chicago left me with upset stomach, so I ended up spending more time in the privy than in my seat. Attendants though supportive. A woman sitting next to me said that her flight from Toronto to Austin was also cancelled last time she flew that route. Makes you think twice about going somewhere. I am 71 so I know how much things have changed. Not entirely the airlines’ fault, but to some degree yes. Maybe sell less tickets, but deliver on the tickets you sell. I failed to avoid going through Toronto this time. I usually go through Montreal. Toronto has a really bad reputation, in many areas, and I was reminded of this the hard way.
Flight was cancelled. Rebooked via Toronto. Total delay was in excess of 12 hours to get to my final destination. Simply unacceptable.
Service and staff were good and friendly. Just wish I had a little more leg room.
On time departures, early arrivals, great crews. Can't ask for any better
We had to run to catch our flight. An announcement should have been made that they would wait for us. When we were departing our flight from Hfx. There was commotion became the flight attendants asked for passengers to wait that weren’t connecting to another flight,a passenger yelled out for everyone to SIT DOWN that weren’t connecting. I feel that the air craft should be exited the same way as is boarded,by zones.Also,if people are connecting then those passengers should be exited first,an announcement to suggest that people wait DOES NOT WORK. So much for social distancing!
Pros: "Staff are very nice"
Cons: "Delay in flight of more than 45 minutes"
Pros: "Boarding was good and fast"
Cons: "The audio jack was not good thus I had to keep it steady with my hand to be able to listen to movie"
Cons: "if the flight is on time. I was delay more than 10 hours"
Cons: "The delay was ridiculous. Seats are the usual tiny ones so for a big guy they suck but over all great trip"
Pros: "Got the seats I wanted, movies were good. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "In Montreal they took my carry on bag stating it was too big, I have traveled with it many many times and it always fits except the tiny planes, this was a 787. When I got on the plane many people had larger bags then mine and it was the last bag on the carousel at the other end."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Please train this guys for customer service and fix there attitude."
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"
Cons: "Dirty plane, garbage stuffed in seat pocket. Tray table disgusting!"
Pros: "Smooth as you like"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Not enough time to the flight from Halifax to west plam beach"
Pros: "Exiting the plane and terminating my transaction."
Cons: "Delayed. Missed layover. Lost luggage. Poor communication. Agents had attitudes."
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."
Pros: "Air Canada couldn’t have been better, I missed a flight they waived their fees and got me on the next direct flight home. Wonderful service !!"
Pros: "Boarding process."
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!"
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."
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: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours but no one was in much of a rush to get it going"
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
Cons: "Too hot and cramped"
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Pros: "This was my third air canada rouge flight so I knew what to expect. Staff are always super courteous and good food options available."
Cons: "Almost 0 arm/leg room, flight was delayed and they tried bumping me off my flight onto another because they had overbooked."
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Pros: "The t flight was completely uneventful-the best kind."
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: "when I landed"
Cons: "First off the the plane was mid takeoff and stopped which terrified the passengers and crew. Then we learned the plane had technical issues which lead to a 50 minute delay, then air canada did nothing as in terms of compensation. My audio jack for the entertainment system was broken, seat 19F on flight 617 by the way... Then I got up to use the washroom and when I came out I had to wait 30 minutes at the back of the plane standing until the servers were done serving drinks and snacks/food. Then the landing was terrifying as the plane was swooping/shaking much more than normal, even the board crew looked a bit worried. Could NOT wait to be done of the flight, one of my worst ever."
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
