Pros: "This was a redeye flight which are never the best. We upgraded to first class for a chance to sleep. The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling."

Cons: "Communicating take off time!!! It changed multiple times by one three hours and ended up flying the next day!"

Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Proper communication"

Pros: "Every was great, honestly"

Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Always late to depart. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."

Pros: "Just the crew was super sweet and amazing. Everything else sucks. My seat won't recline and the flights get delayed all the time. Worst was the state LaGuardia is in right now."
Cons: "More on time performance would be great from Delta. Seats that actually recline and not get stuck. Screens in all the seats to enjoy entertainment."

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."

Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"

Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."

Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"

Pros: "I liked the wide variety of movies and snacks available."
Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking my seat."

Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "The flight crew was very competent and welcoming."
Cons: "The gate agent at JFK was annoying. She forced us to check carry on bags for no apparent reason. Much larger carry on’s were allowed both before and after us. Her fellow agent seemed like she wanted to apologize for her capricious behavior, but was understandably hesitant to do so. The airplane seating was cramped and uncomfortable. The rntertainment choices were very limited unless you enjoy superhero movies or a very limited range of audio/musical selections. So it goes in coach class."

Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."

Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Minneapolis, there was another flight to Denver that I meant I could’ve been home three hours earlier had I done standby, but because I had a cheaper ticket I was not allowed that opportunity. That makes absolutely no sense to me seeing as my flight was packed. I’m sorry my flight saved me money"

Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."

Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."

Pros: "Tried the free WiFi and movies"

Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."
Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."

Cons: "price could be cheaper"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and shout out to Brady, he really helped me out of a TIGHT situation :-)"
Cons: "Felt bad for the crew being under pressure as they got off a flight and had to rush to ours....."

Pros: "I liked the flight attendant in first class. Unfortunately I was not in first class"
Cons: "I did not like the attitude of the obese old man (I, too, am an obese old woman) as I saw it toward some of my cabin mates."

Cons: "Seats are hard to get comfortable in. Headrests are awkward"

Pros: "Terrible customer service both on the phone before the flight, but Especially from the gate agent. Wow she was really horrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board were good! They helped get everything straight. Easily could have been handled by the incompetent gate agent. Wow."

Pros: "Upon arriving in Minneapolis-St. Paul, it was a struggle to determine whether or not my bags had made it, whether or not I needed to collect them from baggage claim due to the cancellations/delays, and if I was even going to be able to transfer my ticket. Flight arrived late in the evening when most flights were basically complete for the day. Luckily, I happened upon a red-eye arrival, and spoke to an agent at that gate (Taj). Taj was without a doubt, THE BEST GATE AGENT I HAVE ENCOUNTERED IN MY 40+ YEARS OF TRAVELLING!! I explained my situation to him, and he immediately asked to see my travel info. He proceeded to get me on a flight much earlier than originally anticipated, upgraded me to Premium fare status, and did his best to re-route my luggage (which he informed me was still sitting in ATLANTA 18 hours after having left there...) - how does someone get on a flight, and their check-in get noted, but their luggage does not get put on said flight?? Things that make you go hmmmmm.... All that aside...I will be planning a trip to Minneapolis-St. Paul specifically to take a gift of appreciation to Taj! Well done on this end Delta - Taj is an excellent example of intelligent customer service."
Cons: "Last minute notifications of delays/cancellations. Luggage was not placed on my original departing flight from Atlanta 18 HOURS EARLIER...not cool Delta. As a result, I did not receive my luggage for another 2 1/2 days ."

Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"

Pros: "Smooth quick flight."
Cons: "I had to rebook as opposed to it being done by Delta. Cancelation was due to equipment."

Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"

Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."
Cons: "On one of my flights the Wi-Fi was down so it killed my entertainment but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't so bad for me"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."

Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "This is my third flight this year with Delta and every time we wait for the "crew" to get off from another flight. And as soon as they get there we can board. It's getting very annoying. Fix it."

Pros: "The flight was run through Delta out of Seattle, and the crew was friendly and very helpful, as it was initially somewhat confusing how to check in for the flight online via WestJet's site - but the check-in agents and gate agents quickly clarified! The flight also boarded and departed mostly on time, and the onboard wifi was great."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing to check in online, as the WestJet site doesn't list Seattle as a departure city and then it took several different input attempts before Delta's site found my WestJet flight info."

Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No entertainment Small overhead bind"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."

Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."

Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "Breakfast was mediocre for First Class."

Pros: "I rated entertainment as 1* as there is no N/A option. Flight was very pleasant."

Pros: "Flight crew was very personable; cheerful and courteous."

Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"

Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."

Pros: "When we were landing!!!!"
Cons: "To crowded, seats to to!!! close need personal space not everyone baths!!##!!"

Cons: "The gate in Calgary took approximately 45 minutes to allow off the plane . We arrived early but by the time we were able to leave the plane , boarding for our next flight had already begun. We had to go through customs and other planes from the US had similar problems. Therefore many were delayed."

Pros: "Seat Was good for economy. Crew was great and boarding was also good"

Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"

Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."

Cons: "Dinner service on the Calgary-London flight started very late and the cabin lights weren’t dimmed for several hours on this night flight."

Pros: "flight attendants were very good & compassionate for a blind passenger."
Cons: "Check-in crew on the ground needs an attitude adjustment. They were more interested in high 5ing one another than opening up to take care of waiting customers. the service culture was lacking."

Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"

Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."

Pros: "Mate"
Cons: "Late"

Cons: "Flight crew was rude"

Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."

Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"

Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."

Pros: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"

Pros: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"

Pros: "Great staff. Overall good considering the cheap flight."
Cons: "No free meal, the pizza ordered was terrible. No tv, only iPads for rent."

Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."

Pros: "I just love WestJet"

Pros: "My trip was so good that I wanted to recomend to every body.BUT, Last night when I came back to vncouver ,about half an hour I have to wait until my suitcase arrived. I saw a lady were coming back from England and she was tired and had another connecting flight that was worry will lose it , Another lady was coming from Nairoobi .Her kids were waiting for her . It was very bad publicity for your flights. But your staff and flight was very good. I hope you can solve Luggage problem. Thank you."
Cons: "Waiting a long time for my suitcase to arrive."

Pros: "Good amount of leg room"
Cons: "Bathroom didn't work in the back of the airplane"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Counter checking was not available when I got to airport, and I needed to wait to hand over luggage. Counter crew did not know if I could take an umbrella through security, so I sent it through with luggage and it arrived mangled. I would think crew should know about implications of taking an umbrella."

Cons: "Pre boarding passengers were disturbed by having to get out of their seats to allow other same-row passengers to be seated. If those needing assistance were boarded last all other passengers are settled and could move more easily for them than the other way around."

Pros: "Efficient, friendly and excellent service. Very enjoyable flight, as per usual :) Keep up the great work!"
Cons: "It's too often people complain. We arrived safely and recieved excellent service. So no complaints"

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."

Pros: "Always friendly and helpful...great to see and experience!"

Pros: "flight on time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Computers down delayed checkin. Items stolen from checked bags. Flight delayed. Lost bag on a flight with no transfers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"

Pros: "Easy low volume airport palm desert"

Cons: "I am a tall person and the seating is just too darn close with absolutely no leg room for a tall person to fit comfortably in the seat. In fact, I could not even get the tray/table to come down level because my knees were too high and there was not enough distance between myself and the passenger seat in front of me to allow the tray table to come down completely and sit flat."

Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "Normal flight"

Pros: "It wasn't full and there was an open seat beside me"

Pros: "Always great crew members!"
Cons: "Power outage in Kamloops, causing a little boarding and seating issues, crew handled it well!"

Pros: "Flight on time. Crew pleasant and polite. Only complaint is being charged extras for baggage. I suffer from a handicap/ injury and as a result do not like to carry luggage on to the flight as it causes me issues. It is frustrating to buy a ticket and always have to pay an added fee when I get there. I would pay more or pick another airline if baggage was included for me."
Cons: "Pay for check baggage. Because of a handicap I prefer to not carry baggage onto the flight. See above."

Pros: "Direct flight and was cost effecient"
Cons: "Gate construction made it hard to find where to go"

Pros: "Crew was great! I've decided on flights over 5 hours, upgrading as much as you can is important."

Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"

Pros: "Roast beef sandwich was great"
Cons: "Just because the crew is having a bad day they shouldn't take it out on the customer"

Cons: "Did not get TSN for the entire flight, even after we entered Canadian airspace."

Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Friendly."

Pros: "I like the staff and services"
Cons: "It's all I like west jet"

Cons: "There was no entertainment. But wifi was available if that is what you consider entertainment."

Pros: "Love it. Friendly and nice. Thank for making this flight rock!"

Pros: "Great staff. Smooth flight. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Is any plane seat comfortable??? Need better ergonomics for knees and necks!"

Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "No place to charge phone on any flights"

Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."

Pros: "After several eye rolls, I was offered taxi vouchers to and from our hotel - I had several bags and 3 sleeping children and i needed help getting to and from the hotel, more than what would have been offered with the shuttle service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no indication of the delays from the crew. I was emailed that we would be having supper on the flight - but myself and my 3 kids were told there were not enough meals and we were unable to eat anything other than some small snack items. We missed our connecting flight and given the late hour I would have appreciated some extra help with my 3 (sleeping) children exiting the plane - I asked for help but none was given."

Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."

Pros: "Efficient"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The flight was packed and wearing masks Was not enforced."

Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "leaving on time. more than 4 hours delayed. we had to deplane the aircraft and all the time there was not a certain answer."

Cons: "If American Airlines didn’t delay 10 minutes so you miss your connecting flight twice within 1 trip"

Pros: "ON time"
Cons: "Food selection"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, my flights were on time, good selection of movies. That's about it."
Cons: "Their Basic fare should be renamed "Bare-sic" – you have to pay for almost anything. Food choices can be better. I guess they can pay the Munich airport to get better treatment and not having to bus their passengers around."

Cons: "Size of seat"

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Cons: "The communication on the actual flight could have been better. The flight from Houston to Charlotte was not very informative as in weather conditions, traffic, or the time in which we landed was not gone over."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "The plane could have been cleaner"

Cons: "Smoke in cabin, has to return to Houston. Then they never transferred our luggage as promised."

Pros: "Great crew. Easily accessible."
Cons: "Several delays."

Cons: "Gate change and delay in boarding. Delayed landing and made connecting flight difficult"

Pros: "Much better the typical American cattle class. Qantas actually served real food. Cabin was spacious."

Cons: "Crew was very rude and the inflight food and entertainment was horrible. Food wasn’t edible and my tv didn’t work"

Pros: "Early arrival and ease to sit down"
Cons: "Better snacks and"

Pros: "Everything worked out great."

Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth takeoff"
Cons: "The loud child behind me kicking my seat and yelling"

Pros: "Late takoff"
Cons: "Late takeoff"

Pros: "Was able to sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Gotta fly from HOU to DFW to get anywhere ... Delays, running from gate to gate .. meanwhile AA staff and gate agents are always scowling and never helpful. In general, flying is expensive and sucks."

Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."

Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "The directions don’t work to connect to in flight entertainment."

Cons: "The A319 outfitted in this way is to freaking tight!!! There is not even close to enough leg room for an average sized American male. I'm no taller than six foot and not overweight. You must fix this issue. I will look for other carriers whenever possible."

Cons: "Airplane very uncomfortable!spacevery reduce to obtain more seating capacity they forgot customer comfort"

Pros: "the fly was on time"
Cons: "I don't like central seats"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice trip was uneventful."

Cons: "Delayed. We were unable to change the flight to sit together. Staff not very helpful"

Pros: "Snacks"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"

Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."

Pros: "This particular trip everything went as well as can be expected. I was upgraded to first on both legs, always a bonus. Crew was friendly and efficient. FYI, this was not AA crew and equipment, was the regional sub. But still, all good."
Cons: "I don't care for the shuttle from the main terminal to the remote. It's crowded and uncomfortable, even for a few minutes."

Cons: "Plane got cancelled. Missed my other flight. Spending $100 more that was unnecessary"

Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."

Cons: "Late and delayed arrival. No seed assign until I was at the gate"

Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"

Cons: "They lost our baggage and communication was terrible"

Pros: "Easy to book. Reasonable price. 10/10 would book again."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

Never flying American again."

Pros: "Normally I've been on planes where the seats aren't that great! But these seats were wonderful! :) I was out like a baby!"
Cons: "I don't really like the complimentary pretzels."

Pros: "I sat next to my wife"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I feel as though I should receive some kind of courtesy credit for the poor condition of the plane, friendliness of the staff, efficiency of the staff, and finally for being 3 hours late because failure to adequately fuel the plane. I was skipped for receiving refreshments, the plane had interior panels falling off. The second flight didn't have enough fuel for a 40 minute flight. The pilot told us that we were delayed for rain for 10 minutes but we did not have enough fuel to circle around. As a result we came back to Philadelphia. I missed a graduation party as a result. I had a poor experience. The flight attendants did not greet me on entrance or exit."

Pros: "A two hour ride on an airplane without having to drive."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable on this pane."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that American Airlines cancelled my 17 Yr old neice's flight from Dallas to Denver over a thing called "timed-out". And had her sleep in a room with a cott instead of a hotel room. And the fact that we as customers pay good money for tickets only to be subject to the airlines way of business. It is absolutely unacceptable!"

Pros: "The flight was excellent and the price was right"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Flight and flight crew were wonderful. No problems at all."
Cons: "Had to be rebooked, but was not told it was as a stand-by. I think this information is important to tell a customer. Was only told the next flight time out. Then when I received my bag back (was placed under plane upon boarding which was no problem), my handle was broken."

Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."

Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"

Pros: "movies"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."

Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."

Pros: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Cons: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."

Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"

Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The trip took about 48 hours. After a cancelled flight I got no hotel discount. Several flights were delayed or cancelled and in the end I ended up just going to a city 3 hours from where I live and renting a car to drive home. My luggage still hasn't arrived. This was the worst, most stressful travel experience of my life."

Pros: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"

Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."

Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."

Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."

Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."

Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."

Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"

Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."

Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"

Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"

Pros: "Each had own entertainment screen per passenger"
Cons: "My luggage was left in Houston and that was very inconvenience. And it took a day and a half before it came."

Cons: "The temperature control system was broken so the cabin temperature was upwards of 90F for the entire flight. The flight crew wouldn't acknowledge the issue until we had landed."

Pros: "but only a few minutes late arriving ..."
Cons: "Boarded on time then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for the water truck."

Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."

Pros: "Crew was great!! Smooth landing!!"

Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"

Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"

Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."

Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive when I did. I had to spend several hundred dollars on cloths for me and my niece so that we had what we needed for the two days it took to get our bags."

Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."

Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."

Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."

Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."

Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."

Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."

Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."

Pros: "NOTHING AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SERVICE"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"

Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."

Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"

Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."

Pros: "Loaded quickly,"

Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"

Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."

Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"

Cons: "Got to Edmonton way late after a lot of flight changes and rederecting due to missed connection in Huston"

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "The restroom on the plane was not clean. The WiFi wasn’t working but we were still able to watch in flight United tv with the app."

Cons: "Flight had mexhanical problems. Waited in plane for 90 minutes then we came off the plane. I changed flights...still waiting for my bags."

Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"

Pros: "Friendly & informative captain & crew"
Cons: "Smooth flight, no complaints, A+"

Pros: "Great flight and crew"

Pros: "Polaris"

Pros: "Polaris"
Cons: "It is smaller"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked the cost, BUT..."
Cons: "I didn't like that it wasn't readily advertised you get put at the back of the bus, bottom of the pile, lowest point on the totem pole. In other words, I was booked on my return trip as Basic Economy- no frills, no thrills. Last to board, no carry-on allowed. I had to end up paying the same for that portion of my round-trip as I would have if I'd just booked through United. $60 in checked baggage. NOT happy with Kayak more than anything."

Pros: "Very normal. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Our seta were separated by two rows."

Pros: "Stroopwafels and fresh hot tea, polite crew"
Cons: "Everything went well"

Cons: "Having a 3,5 hour delay."

Cons: "Flight attendant was really not very nice at all. I felt like I was in trouble for even taking the flight. 'Move your feet. Bags have to be moved under seat. I need to see your seat belts.' She was curt, unfriendly & really made me upset with her bad attitude. Maybe she was having a bad day but I paid good hard earned money for my trip. I at least deserved courteousy & mutual respect."

Pros: "I am happy the pilot caught the faulty engine before we were in the air. That probably wouldn't have ended well. I like the snack choices."
Cons: "We were late boarding. Once on the plane flight was delayed longer due to a maintenance issue. Once on the run way, pilot said one of the engines would not start and we would have to turn around."

Cons: "HUGE DELAY. MISSED CONNECTION. CONSTANT UNCERTAINTY"

Pros: "Everything went by smoothly, no problems"

Pros: "They let people get on with oversize bags when sequence 4&5 get on there's no room left"

Pros: "Fast!"

Pros: "Crew courtesy"
Cons: "Seat space No food at all Internet too expensive"

Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "There was a very large couple sitting in seat to my right. I'm 6'3 250 so not small. It had a rear bathroom and I had people banging on me the whole flight!!!!!! She could have moved some people around!!!! The worst flight of my life!!!! It's about customer service."

Pros: "They got us on this flight (the last one to SNA for the day) after we missed our original connecting flight due to delays on the Frankfurt to Houston flight."
Cons: "crowded"

Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"

Cons: "Delayed boarding, no overhead room, change of gate.... Kayak informed me of gate change and delayed flight easily 30 minutes prior to board change in the airport"

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Touch screen on entertainment not sensitive enough and requires tapping hard to scroll through and select movies. Tapping from person behind you can be felt and wake you up from your sleep"

Pros: "Bigger plane and fast flight"
Cons: "Nothing. It was great"

Pros: "The communication was great. The taking off and landing was great"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and I was not given a choice. They ran out of chicken and the only food they had left was pork that seemed like can food. Breakfast was dry croissant with yogurts."

Pros: "Direct tv in united codeshare flt"

Cons: "The 777-200 is geting old"

Pros: "The crew was great, the service impeccable, the boarding process fast"
Cons: "At least two different kind of snacks to choose from, will be much appreciated"

Pros: "It was nice"

Pros: "Delays."
Cons: "Delays. But sometime is better for segurity I understand."

Pros: "Uncrowded flight so there were lots of extra seats!"
Cons: "No food or snacks provided for free."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "I liked temperature!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 times which led me to being 1.5 hours late to my meeting. We weren't told there was going to be a delay until we lined up to start boarding!"

Cons: "-Was a United flight despite being billed as Lufthansa, I always try and avoid United as I have had bad experiences in the past. -Was unable to choose seats online. -Upon check in was told that only middle seats were available for my partner and I away from each other even though we showed up 6 hours early in order to get good seats as we couldn't check in online. -We then paid extra to get seats next to each other (250 bucks) and the entertainment systems in those seats were broken. -When we told the flight attendant staff they said there was nothing they could do and were rude. -When trying to explain the situation to United Customer service they were also rude."

Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."

Pros: "I was upgraded to economy plus aisle seat"
Cons: "Flight delayed about 1hr"

Pros: "Getting off"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting 16 hrs at airport. Service lines were all the way out of terminal. When I was next in line to speak with someone the employee told me he was closing his counter because he had been there all day . Very disappointed in the way United handled it. Still have not received anything from them other than a refund."

Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."

Pros: "Captain kept us up to date on delay; didn't keep in the dark."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 2 hours; lot of confusion at the gate."

Cons: "Explanation for the delay in boarding"

Pros: "The length of the flight was acceptable."
Cons: "My seat was moved futher back in the plan 34D, seats were smaller, knee space tight, the air back here was unpleasant (b.o.). Very noisy. The stewardess did not know how to operate the entertainment screen, finally she said I needed headphones, once I was hooked up volume up High I still couldn't hear the movie, to much outside noise, I thought the guy behind me was shaving. The Asian snack was dreadful no beverage available for awhile."

Pros: "Lining up in groups"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Gate personnel were great."

Pros: "Crew, Entertainment options, spacious seating"
Cons: "Nothing"
