Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The cabin was a little cool for me during at least half of the flight"
Pros: "Crew was good. No economy seat is super comfortable. (Why would you even ask that?)"
Cons: "Be on time. Not keep changing/delaying the border time. Not change my seat. (Plane was far from full.)"
Pros: "I like the entertainment on Delta."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "There were not head flaps on the seat. The person seated next to me overflowed into my seat making it uncomfortably warm even with the air vent fully open. Was in & out of sleep during a red eye flight."
Pros: "good flight, inflight menu and movie library"
Cons: "rude bag drop off kiosk"
Pros: "United Airlines culturally has a very big issue. The crews are not friendly and the seating is awful."
Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"
Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."
Pros: "the food was really top notch and service was great and friendly"
Pros: "I loved Craig on our flight he made it a hilarious and fun experience! And he needs a raise!"
Cons: "The seat was a bit uncomfortable, and boarding was slow. To be expected I assume for anything not first class."
Pros: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on the plane."
Pros: "In rescheduling us they only charged us $54 per person"
Cons: "Reminder came 20 min beforehand and because I didn’t pre check in we missed the flight even though the plane had not even arrived.... terrible experience in Paris and impacted our life in a large way.... not a good experience using kayak"
Pros: "food was great. the plane was very comfortable and i also like the fact that there was free movies and wifi inside the plane"
Pros: "It was water or water no soft drinks"
Cons: "Only water"
Pros: "Atlanta airport is super duper organized!!! No problem getting tons of people through passport control & customs! Lots of well English speaking guiding staff- i was delighted!"
Cons: "On the international aircraft, 767, the monitors were smaller and hab on the domestic flights flight, the picture was way too dark to enjoy & sound out of one earpiece only"
Cons: "Rapid City, I could check my BAG through to PDX."
Pros: "My flying experience with Delta was and has always been great. Always professional and courteous crew and employees."
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Easy to boar, no delay and arrived on time"
Cons: "One of the flight attendant was a little rude to some passengers."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 minutes"
Pros: "Plane nice and comfortable"
Cons: "The gate crew in New York were not in anyway representative of what you as a company are trying to accomplish. Rude, unresponsive, and way to controlling. I watched an 80+ couple who were in first class with me try to board early because of there mobility. "You need to get in line over there on the right" was the answer...sorry to see that happen with Delta !!"
Pros: "Flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the on time and then delayed. Gate changed 4 times which was frustrating. Especially when at Sea-Tac you have to take a train to get to some of the gates."
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"
Pros: "Boarding super excellent! Also: Best landing I've ever experienced! Props to the pilot!!"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "Great experiencing getting on and off the plane"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Got us out a bit early which helped reduce anxiety of a close connection. Felt taken care of."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."
Cons: "Delta could do a little more to align people behind the right zone pillars when lining up for boarding. Passengers especially those not used to flying or flying with Delta are always confused. Maybe some stripping on the floor could help or pillars at the front and midway back."
Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"
Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Pros: "Service was very nice."
Cons: "The flight was insanely delayed. Three hours. With a major product launch the next day, it was not ideal."
Pros: "For the first time in a ling time I felt if I dropped something I didn't have to kiss it goodbye. My knees and back didn't hurt by the end of the fight. I know longer felt like a sardines in a tin."
Pros: "Video screens at each seat!!! Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Pros: "Crew professional and courteous"
Cons: "5 flights cancelled, poor communication, total chaos in rebooking, lines 5 hrs long to get rebooked."
Pros: "We were on time!!!!"
Cons: "I've had friendlier flight attendants"
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "The plane wasn't ice cold, which was a nice change."
Cons: "I couldn't close my air vent unless I wanted to hear a nice whistling sound for the duration of the flight. So I just left it open, no big deal."
Pros: "Had exit row so more leg room"
Cons: "Did not announce zones well, no entertainment."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and curtious"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude! I also it would have been nice to be told the wifi wasn't working!"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "It was a huge plane, normally on my trips from Toronto to Calgary its a six seater plane. I really enjoyed it being and 11 seater per row, with more leg room, a window seat, and no one in the seat beside me! Made for a much more comfortable experience. Was not what I expected for the price I paid for it. Was very please by that."
Pros: "Excellent pre Boarding service and announcements; reasonably comfortable seats; great landing;"
Cons: "There are never gluten free options in the snacks; there were no entertainment systems on the plane - that's not important to me but perhaps it is to others."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Cut out the drink and snack service. Just offer water and ditch the drink cart in the aisle."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants. Comfortable seating. Nothing really was bad about the flight. Attendants at departure as well as arrival were helpful and attentive to our needs."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of."
Cons: "Premium seat was just coach seat with middle seat blocked. But you're in the first 3 rows."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Seats were okay a bit tight, but, fine."
Cons: "Cancun flight was delayed 24 hours in advance, westjet did not hold connecting flight despite advance notice, being expedited through CBS and reaching gate before departure time"
Pros: "Flight and ground crew handled a cancelled flight perfectly, with good communication with the passengers, efficient handling of bag retrieval and hotel accommodation. “Rescue” flight following day was appreciated."
Cons: "Just perfect"
Pros: "Flight was on time. For once."
Cons: "Flight attendants were making ridiculous juvenile jokes over the intercom."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Screaming crying children"
Cons: "Because of the discounted fare I was placed in rear seating at the very back of the plane and to change seats was to cost me $14"
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Should consider giving front seat to senior Snacks could have been better keeping in mind the flight time"
Pros: "Good schedule from Bermuda to Toronto, good price, early arrival, professionals!"
Pros: "We left on time and arrived on time! That's all I really ask!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was fine."
Pros: "Most of the crew were nice. Captain very informative."
Cons: "It was freezing! The headphones they rented me didn’t work, or maybe it was the tablet—could barely hear the movie."
Pros: "very nice."
Cons: "A little cold"
Pros: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Phenomenal all around!"
Cons: "Doing in flight entertainment via app is a fine idea. But your app requires way too many permissions so I won't use it. Otherwise, an excellent airline."
Pros: "No hassles, friendly folks, on time and baggage wait ok"
Pros: "All flight crew were personable, kind, funny, warm and I am someone who is afraid of flying. I felt safe and comfortable."
Pros: "Very enjoyable flight!! The crew was amazing and funny!! It was a great experience and will definitely fly WestJet again!!"
Cons: "No tv in back rowa"
Cons: "No movies available"
Cons: "No wifi’s connect but overall great flight"
Pros: "All good,a little delay in my transfer as a result of original plane engine problem ,however they rectified that in a reasonable time frame. I will fly with you again no problem."
Pros: "I got to my destination with relatively no hassle and the crew were friendly and the coffee was good."
Cons: "There was NO entertainment at all.. no radio.. no movies.. no music channels nothing.. the fliplane did have WiFi.. but the catch was the WestJet app needs to be pre-downloaded. I’m"
Pros: "Contrary to my previous experience this flight was on time and the staff was very courteous"
Pros: "The ground staff at the gate kept us informed of the delays to the flight."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed, apparently because a crew member called in sick at the last minute. Then we had to wait on the runway for the plane to be de-iced. This could have been done while we were waiting for the crew, rather than after boarding."
Pros: "Standard things like cleanliness in bathrooms and friendliness of crew were good."
Cons: "It was definitely colder than usual on the plane."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled then rescheduled on a flight that was over an hour delayed. We almost lost our connection to Hong Kong as a result. Made for a very stressful journey with 77 year old parent and 8 years old child long waiting/ tiring time and running to gate our flight."
Cons: "delayed, again"
Pros: "Had an empty seat next to me, the extra space made the flight one of the most comfortable I've ever been on"
Pros: "Staff was kind and courteous. Entertainment system had lots of video options."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Needed to use own device to access in-flight entertainment. Charger was in packed bag and phone was low on juice so only got to watch for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "I miss the free movies..."
Pros: "on time, smooth flight"
Pros: "Flight was good, crew was courteous and boarded on time. Cabin space was adequate and the entertainment provided through WestJet’s app is very good."
Pros: "The staff on westjet were amazing. Totally went out of their way when they learned we had gone to Las Vegas to be married."
Pros: "Flights were on time and luggage arrived safely."
Cons: "I couldn't access inflght movies as I didn't realize I had to have the WestJet App downloaded prior to the flight. In any event I like having a screen in front of me rather than looking at a tiny Android screen. Also on a 5 hour flight it seems we should get a hot meal rather than having to pay extra for meals."
Pros: "I upgraded and that was definitely worth it."
Cons: "I don't like 2.5 hour flights in general. Just long enough to be annoying. But that has nothing to do with you and your airline."
Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed two hours. We arrived safe but still, the delay creates such an impact on traveler’s plans. AA didn’t even offer bonus miles."
Cons: "Very full flight when covid cases are at all time highs. Not possible to social distance in these conditions."
Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"
Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."
Cons: "Plane was 30 minutes late which was not idea because we were getting to our destination in the late evening. Boarding was a mess."
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Cons: "Small plane, forced to valet checkin carry on luggage, no drinks or snacks :/"
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "Great service from crew!"
Cons: "Satisfied all around..."
Pros: "There was a short delay but it was done professionally and I got a notice about it. I had nice people seating next to me and the craw was ok."
Cons: "It was upsetting that they didn’t have earbuds/headphones as my iPhone headphones can’t connect to the TV so I had to watch a movie without sound. You should have extras. I also wish they had a banana for us, it’s better than pretzels. And cheep and healthy."
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Pros: "The movie selection on the flight was stellar."
Cons: "AA let me know that our flights were delayed to MIA, which would in effect, make up miss out connection to get to Kingston, Jamaica. They tried to rebook us, but for the NEXT day. So after calling, I got my ticket rebooked for an earlier flight, but I couldn’t do the same for my boyfriend’s. At the airport we requested he check in as standby, however, the rep checking us in said he couldn’t. We asked for other flights arriving on the same day at the original ticket & even looking across partner airlines, he said there was nothing. Hard to believe, but then eventually said he found something by way of Lax to AZ to MIA & then KIN that would arrive later that night. We quickly took it because it was getting late to check in for TSA for my flight, only to find out later that the ticket he printed was for arrival the next night - not at all what we agreed upon! What a waste of time, as if the money we spent on this vacation didn’t mean anything, and when I called to get compensated, I was told to write in to AA. Write in. It’s 2018. Who can I speak with to get compensated for our time & money being wasted? I understand it may not have been within AA control, however, I would have liked for them to have cared that we were inconvenienced as paying customers, instead of being told, in action & in words, that the inconvenience we were being put through (to no fault of our own) was no big deal & we should just suck up the money we are loosing as a result. Very disappointed ☹️"
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Cons: "Entertainment via internet could NEVER be really be done complitly. And the flight attendants did not know how to help costumers"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and no refund."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Pros: "I landed safely"
Pros: "Hostesses were great. And pilot landed safely"
Cons: "Stayed too long on the jet way. No available gate"
Pros: "Ability to upgrade to first class"
Cons: "Security taking forever"
Pros: "Not overcrowded or over booked. Efficient boarding process. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Great landing, given there were issues with the flaps that slow down the plane. It was a short flight, so there wasn't as diverse entertainment as you would usually get on a longer haul. Typical AA biscotti and beverages."
Cons: "Airport experience at Hamilton. Arrived 2.5 hours early and we could not enter through U.S. CBP because we were too early.... We were told we needed to run our boarding passes by the check in counter agents prior to being able to go through for CB&P."
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and pleasant"
Cons: "No IFE, bug not a big deal I had my own."
Pros: "Flight was on-time, smooth, with friendly service."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Pros: "The flight was calm and clean. Not much turbulence. The flight staff was polite and there was plenty of room."
Cons: "The food was horrible and the seats were a little uncomfortable but everything else was pretty good"
Pros: "The only nice thing was the plane."
Cons: "There was terrible service. And we missed out connection because an empty plane was sitting at our gate. There is no way the airline did not know this plane was at our gate. They also did not play for our hotel to stay the night. Never flying American again. Not a single employee seems to know what's going on."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Pros: "Biscotti, pilot, crew"
Cons: "Seating is so uncomfortable, unable to recline more than an inch or so, then everybody rushes around making you return to an upright position! What's the point?"
Pros: "Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected."
Cons: "AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch or raise legs. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "The plane was new and nice looking"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The crew was rude . Seats were not assigned until boarding NPILWL3B. Of course they give you the worst seats."
Pros: "Handicap boarded with sufficient extra time"

Pros: "I didn't like at all. I will never fly with this airline ever again"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
Cons: "The touchscreen on the plane was awful, 10 touches to make it work at least."
Pros: "comfortable but tight squeeze, flight was short so no problem but my husband is 6' 2""
Cons: "they did the best, were polite, helpful other AC flights taken, this was probably the best"
Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Pros: "The staff are friendly"
Cons: "They didnt say any information to the passengers who had connecting flights. No one us that all passengers with connecting flight need to check out their luggages and check it in again. Now my luggage is lost.."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were ok. Not happy I missed the next connecting flight"
Pros: "Exceptional & friendly service."
Cons: "For a 4+ hour flight they may consider offering some free snack & drink."
Pros: "Just the in-flight movies"
Cons: "It was a 787 but any or all room was taken into cramming more seats. Food was the worse I've ever had on a long distance flight. Bland and despicable. This is the worse international flight as far as room or food. Requested for an exit row seat but was told it was an additional $125 charge. Really that's how Air Canada is getting business by giving customers a very poor experience. A group of four us traveled on this trip and we had the same consensus and won't be recommending Air Canada."
Pros: "Riws nuch too close together. There should be a notice in the boarding area for passengers to download app so they can access on board movies. Or even better this should be included with ticket."
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. We were delayed and rerouted to Toronto but not given enough information. We spent an average for an hour waiting for take off each time."
Pros: "Short flight, crew."
Cons: "Delays and boarding."
Pros: "Boarded plane 1.5 late, then sat on plane at Gate for 2 hours. 4 hours late arriving in Vancouver from Montréal on AC 309."
Pros: "It was a non stop. We left on time, arrived on time. The cheese snack purchase was good. The crew was polite."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, but it was not a long flight."
Pros: "Basically the same budget airline, BUT unlike a previous Germanwings experience, on time, no boarding issues, great crew. This was connecting flight with Air Canada. This time around seating was in the roomier front section which was infinitely better than the "cheap seats" near the back."
Cons: "Food is rubbish. Why bother. Just give us water and have done with it!"
Pros: "The flight was good, on time, and comfortable. Crew was polite and informative."
Cons: "The sound did not work on my screen, even after trying 3 different sets of headphones."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Everything was great. Smooth, comfortable ride. I felt well taken care of"
Cons: "Had to book another flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed both lengths. We have been offered one cup of water and no other drinks on 8 hours flight from Toronto to Budapest! There were no flight attendants asking us if we need anything. We had to wait 1 hour and 20 minutes at Budapest airport for our luggage."
Cons: "One of the crew members seemed a bit out of sorts, didn't smile much and was curt with another passenger when she was asked to take his garbage."
Cons: "cramped no food"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Cons: "it was an international flight, they should offer/include something to eat."
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in plane, and experienced staff at airport (unlike in Okinawa, Tokyo and Osaka). Nice to be able to recheck bags and clear US customs in Vancouver, BC thanks to the US section of the terminal, so that we didn't have to do that upon arrival in Portland."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and tried to get people with large luggage to check it."
Cons: "It took forever to load as people carried on huge bags that wouldn't fit in the overhead bins or under the seats. It took an extremely long time to get through American customs, and they were very rude, not caring if people missed connecting flights. They wouldn't add workers. Some almost missed the flight. P"
Cons: "The huge line up going through customs"
Pros: "Very accommodating with the seating, flights on time"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. For some reason we boarded 30 minutes late and then take off took forever. This made us late for our landing. When we landed, we were stuck on the plane for an extra half hour (after a 10 hour flight) because customs couldn't take us. I will never fly through Toronto again. This was my second experience with Air Canada there (and the first time my luggage was lost on the way to Brussels) and it is a complete disaster. Customs was the most complicated least organized process I had ever been through. There were 3 different spots to go through, I showed my passport and boarding pass a million times, stations were understaffed and the staff was unhappy, grumpy and snapping at airline guests. Additionally there was no free entertainment on the 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."
Pros: "I'm glad Air Canada took appropriate precautions to ensure our safety, however..."
Cons: "On the flight from Portland to Vancouver, someone was allowed to board the plane and then leave, with no explanation, no accompaniment, and no way of contacting him. Consequently, our flight was delayed 3 hours while police and bomb squads checked the plane and all the baggage. Why was this person allowed to disembark in the first place? This occurred during boarding, so there should have been attendants there to stop him or at least ask him where he was going. And once he did disembark, why was no one able to track where he went? Seems like an odd security breach and, ultimately, a huge inconvenience for the passengers who remained on the plane."
Cons: "It was too hot, very warm and could not get the temperature down. Everyone was sweating it was bad."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "A 12 hour delay is not okay. The hotel comp was nice but they split my group of 5 into different hotels. The breakfast voucher did not work. The dinner voucher barely covered the cost at the designated restaurant. Customer service was extremely unaccomadating."
Pros: "Flight crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Got to the airport in plenty of time to check in only to be told there was no seat for me because the flight was overbooked. The ground crew in Bermuda were not very professional. The agent couldn't explain what was happening and said I had to wait for the supervisor to explain. The supervisor was rude and pretty much ignored my daughter and me and then finally called our names to be checked in. Still no apology or explanation. I got the feeling I was a bother to them. That was pretty much the icing on the cake! On our way to Bermuda they asked if we would check our carry on bags as the flight was full. We obliged and did not get ours bags for two days after we arrived in Bermuda. Still no explanation nor apology. No one we talked to could even tell us where our bags were. It was a very disappointing experience for my family. I really expected much better customer service from Air Canada"
Cons: "No free meal on 6 hours flight, small plane, chanel gates..."
Cons: "Barely any entertainment for the 11 hour flight because no one advised me to download their app to access their small selection. Also, first international flight that wanted to charge for beer (highest price I've seen)."
Pros: "Got back home."
Cons: "Air Canada messed up new luggage process in YYZ for our BDA flight. Some connections qualify for baggage transfer with no pickup in Customs. BDA does not qualify. AC spent over an hour trying to figure out what to do with the luggage. Poor communication and inconsistent messaging didn't help. We made our connection but only because it was otherwise delayed arriving due to weather."
Pros: "I thought the service was excellent."
Cons: "There were some delays taking off, but I don't think it had to do with the airline"
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "The wonderful employees at Hamilton's desk."
Cons: "I do and have been in the customer service field for well over 25yrs and the service from the desk reps (EXCEPT from the ladies when leaving Hamilton, Bermuda), flight attendant were lack luster to say the least...the energy and behavior was professional but no enthusiasm from the employees. Almost everyone's personality seemed like a flat lined and when I asked if I can have a whole can of ginger ale, the response was as if I asked to commit a crime. That was on way to Hamilton so I did same thing again on way back to see if I'd get same response and ironically, I did get same type of response as if I was doing or asking something wrong. However, the Air Canada employees in Bermuda at the counter were beyond wonderful, enthusiastic and great energy."
Pros: "Flight went as scheduled"
Cons: "Boarding pass said no meals so I bought very expensive sandwiches in the airport and then they served meals on the plane"
Cons: "need to use my peels ask for water -Never get it nasty smell from bathrooms"
Pros: "I would have to say Air Canada offered the "best" service, flight, crew and environment I have ever experienced in Business Class."
Cons: "Food could be improved"
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Cons: "gate was changed without an announcement flight was twice delayed"
Pros: "Helpful staff, nice new 777 with great entertainment options, food was decent."
Cons: "Slightly unreliable entertainment system that crashed on occassion"
Pros: "There was excellent leg room by modern standards seats were comfortable flight was very fast once we left Montreal. Plane was landed very smoothly"
Cons: "Sat at the terminal for well over an hour waiting for fuel, or so we were told. Food was non-existent, except for purchased food. Not even a peanut. Drink selection lousy crew was variable, as one attendant was less than pleasant. others were fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed no information coming from them. Slow boarding with over a dozen wheelchairs and only one porter to load them. AC did not board children first but started with zones till one mother with 5 kids complained and then they announce young children can board. Girl at the gate chewed gum while dealing with passengers. No free cookies and only offered purchasable food. Free drink was a half full glass of warm ginger ale. No announcement about what to do with missed connections. AT the airport luggage was lost and only one person at the desk to handle dozens of people. Sent in circles looking for someone to help and causing me to pass 3 times through security even though I was never out of the building. This caused a major panic attack and not one employee came ask if they could help me. I was forced to hide in a washroom crying my eyes out and fighting the panic. Finally found out from another passenger that I could get a bus to Kingston. Went to an AC agent to inquire and told to go down stairs and ask them. I had 5 minutes to catch the bus but was told I would have to go back up stairs to purchase a ticket but would miss the bus. I found the driver who was awesome he let me purchase ticket on bus but I only had US dollars and they took it at par. Cost a lot for someone who has little. Luggage finally arrived 2 days later."
Cons: "We were told to check in via the electronic procedure and wait for our name to be listed on a board.. After waiting an hour and a half we were finally directed to the United counter and were able to complete the transfer and go to the gate."
