Cons: "One of my connections was way too short. I almost missed my flight. I had to run!"

Cons: "The connecting flight to Bremen from Munich was missed due to delayed flying from Munich. Then we had a reconnecting flight and 15 minutes prior to boarding it was cancelled. No more flights to Bremen so we then were redirected to a flight to Hamburg. We had to fly from Munich to Vienna and then from Vienna to Hamburg. The flight from Munich to Vienna was delayed by 40 minutes which made us lose the connecting flight. We had to wait until the next morning for a flight to Hamburg, where as we arrived our luggage was lost. The staff ensured us that our connecting flights were waiting for us, however the flights had left 20 minutes prior to our arrival. The staff was nice but the communication was poor."
Cons: "I wish service could be a bit faster. Due to turbulence our second meal could not be served at all. Not sure why the passengers were not served as they were seated. Some passengers were served, some didn’t get served at all. It was a long journey coming from Boston. Imagine arriving home after 1 am without any food."
Cons: "First time took Lufthansa airlines and it was my one of the worst experience. Hospitality is respected when customer is helped when they are in trouble not when they is happily boarded. I have to travel from Milan to San Francisco and I missed flight of my one leg ( milan to frankfurt) of journeyand I went for help and non of the Lufthansa staff at Milan airport helped me. Although my connecting flight was after 12hr they just gave me some random number which to call. I have never experience this in my 8yr of international travel."

Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks.

Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"

Pros: "Attention on the counter and at the boarding gate were excellent"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was broken, they changed me seats however that one wouldn't lean, after that went back to the original seat.

Pros: "More south Indian movie options"
Cons: "Crew was not courteous"

Cons: "More movies in different languages"

Pros: "Special meals were delivered very quickly. Enjoyed all the nature films. Stewardesses were very helpful and spoke enough English to understand."
Cons: "We arrived from O'Hare to Seattle and needed wheelchair assistance as I am disabled. When we approached the gate to ask for wheelchair assistance down the ramp to board the plane I was asked if I really needed the wheelchair. I thought that was an odd question to someone that walks with a cane and could be seen walking from the restroom to the gate which would have been a quick one minute jaunt for me 5 years ago but took at least ten minutes from the restroom to the gate. I was trying to figure out in my head how I was going to attempt this long walk while other travelers would have been quickly boarding ahead of me. This was my first of many trips to China to see family but will definitely be my last trip with Hainan. I was extremely disappointed in the way I was treated - is this the way all passengers with disabilities are treated?"
Pros: "Product was good; single seats in the aisles, full recline, lots of storage."
Cons: "Terrible movie selection, food was mediocre with only one dumpling served but tons of noodles."
Cons: "When I arrived in Beijing Airport, I had to pick up my luggage and re-check in...... It was so not convenient for me since I need to catch another flights :("
Cons: "My remote didn’t work so I could see show but the headphones didn’t work either so I could hear them. I asked the flight attendant about this and got a “sorry, it’s broken” response. This also meant that my reading light was in operable as well as the flight attendant call light so I had to borrow my neighbors. Not the best experience or resolution."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, once we began. There were few bumps."
Cons: "I did NOT like having to wait almost two hours to board, and the constant "We expect to have our computer system up in 'a few minutes' " was really annoying."

Cons: "There was no vegetarian food."
Pros: "The friendly staff and the smooth trip."
Cons: "All the plastic waste created by the lunch."

I received no help at all, all they did was cancel my booking not received any kind of refund and i got stuck in seattle, i had to buy new tickets to go back to denver after losing my flights and not getting a dime back, this is unacceptable!"

Cons: "I didn't like that I felt invisible and had to remind the staff for a simple glass of juice. When giving out snacks and food they looked over me several times and didn't even ask after they had served the other two people if I needed anything. I even asked in Chinese. Just was weird and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Weird departure time."
Pros: "As above"

Pros: "Love their sweet service!! The seat is comfortable."
Cons: "My chair is somehow broken since the earphone cannot plug in. Not allowed to use the mobile phone and no wifi."
Pros: "That it got me home."
Cons: "I was scolded for having my smartphone out (in airplane mode) two hours into the flight. And noticed that other people were sneaking pictures with their phones of the flight map, food, etc., before the crew caught them. I could not watch my preloaded movies, read my Kindle app or listen to podcasts. And my in-flight entertainment monitor had a glitch, which barely made it usable. But I could not explain that to the crew nor ask why I could not use my iPhone, because the cabin crew's English consists of set phrases, not fluency. This airline a serious rethink about flying international. I won't be using it again."
Cons: "Went to check in early and was informed that a visa was required to enter mainland China. Was not informed of this when I left San Diego with a final destination point of Beijing. Was not allowed to board flight at all. Should have been informed upon booking flight what travel documents would be required to complete the flight. Staff was nice enough trying to help reconcile the issue but the it was too late"

Cons: "My video screen kept malfunctioning and the audio was poor."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant."

Pros: "Nice airline- no complaints! New plane, good service, on time, food was pretty typical airline food. Price was amazing."

Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable seating and reasonable variety of food."
Cons: "No information about transfers, had to transfer own luggage. On the flight back it was rescheduled the night before but not enough time for transfer and so I and many others missed our connection flights and were stranded at the airport for six hours. There weren't enough staff to handle the situation and rebook or help with customers who were clearly stressed and drum up. This was really disappointing."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, but what spoiled it totally was the fact that the itinerary was changed from my booking and I had to stay 12 hours in Shanghi airport and be 5 hours late to my work on the next day. I will never book through your website again, very disappointing."
Cons: "Too many crying children"
Pros: "The seats are really comfortable."
Cons: "The transition is so poor. I bought a ticket from San Jose to Hangzhou. Transit Beijing. you can never transite from Beijing to hangzhou on time. They will ask you to delay your trip and take another airline. Which is 5 hrs waiting. Plus they won't even say sorry about their poor service."
Cons: "Bad food. Bad attitude of crew. Not allowe'd our own phones. Movies dated and little variety"
Pros: "They reimbursed us 500RMB for the flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 10 hours. During this time, the only food we received was a hot pocket and some cookies.

Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"

KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"

Pros: "Great food and movies."
Cons: "Might have lost my bag. I was told not to claim my bag and that it would meet me at my final destination. That did not happen. I even paid extra because of the over weight. When they charge you 100 extra euro you expect your bag to make it to its final destination."

I have no complaints at all."

Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."

Pros: "On time"
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: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
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: "On time"
Cons: "Almost 2 hour delay in Halifax until 1:30 am but Air Canada lounge closed at 11 anyway."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
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: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours but no one was in much of a rush to get it going"
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
Cons: "Too hot and cramped"
Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
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"
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: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Toronto->Shanghai Good In general it was a good flight considering how long (14 hours) it was. The new entertainment system has a lot of features and movies. It also has chat to other passengers which is useful when travelling with a group sitting in different areas."
Cons: "Bad Long flight but that is the way it is. The fight map froze on my entertainment system about 1/2 through the flight so the map was useless after that. One side of my earphones also went dead. My wife wanted something better then hot noodles in a cup for the middle meal."
Pros: "chairs a little bigger"
Cons: "the staff are indifferent to a point of being rude. The food is dismal and their cost cutting measures really reflect how bad it has become. It functions like a budget airline now. Try to learn a thing or two from the airlines like Cathay Pacific, Singapore airlines and Qatar airlines."
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
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: "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!"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
Cons: "could not make seat assignments until AFTER purchasing on Kayak and had to pay $250 to get those seats. This is last time I use Kayak."
