Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Pros: "First class was A+"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Timing of the flight was always good. Efficient flying. Crew was super helpful too even when passengers were a bit too much."

Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, boarding was a little messy."
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Flew Alaska Airlines back to back bright had food service. This flight was initially moved back 30 minutes from when I first booked and then delayed twice at the airport. Created a much longer layover and resulted I having to change other reservations at destination."
Cons: "Nothing. I've flown on worse."
Pros: "It’s not American, United, or Delta."
Cons: "The Gogo Internet access was much worse than non-existent, causing me to pay and waste literally hours trying to get a single flight search done on [This idiotic form is broken—the search engine that starts with “Kaya”], and now I have to waste more time and effort to demand a refund from Gogo."
Pros: "Good communication re: the delay, comfy seats, super friendly gate staff, great free movie selection"
Cons: "Not sitting at the gate on the plane for 2+ hours:("
Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."
Pros: "Timing-Fasrer than scheduled"
Pros: "Great! Decent."
Cons: "Delayed. Flue season folks. If your sick just don’t travel!"
Pros: "Great crew as usually"
Cons: "Hated ORD"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and was great besides the boarding."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take quite quite awhile, not sure what the deal was but once we were boarded they kicked it into high gear"
Cons: "Dog allowed to sit next to me. It should be ina crate or at least on the lap of the owner"
Pros: "Had the chance to watch interactions with boarding attendants and other passengers and flight crew. Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."
Pros: "I love Virgin America and was surprised I was getting on one of their planes. I later found out Alaska bought VA out. The moon lighting and easy access to food/drink choices on touch screen is a plus."
Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"
Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"
Pros: "Alaska airlines much better than United or American in terms of friendly service, wifi and battery charge, and entertainment options"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight attendant went on and on and ON about how turbulent air was reported ahead, just because we're in a smooth stretch doesn't mean we're out of it yet, and so on. Must have been every 10-20 minutes. She just would not stop talking; while her voice was fine in person, over the PA it sounded like a cheese grater taken to my inner ear. I barely slept that flight; it was miserable."
Pros: "Good customer service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Sat for an hour before take off."
Pros: "Seats had slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seriously a coffee pot running hot water kept us on the ground another 45 minutes to an hour, very frustrating. There was one flight attendant Jordan that just made me uncomfortable she seemed rude and short even with her co workers. The food looked like it wasn't worth it on flight. Over all this experience made me second guess booking through Alaska and I'm going with the rei credit card instead too."
Pros: "Alaska never disappoints us. We lucked out with a 1/2 full flight from Chicago, so had lots of room. Each of us got a window. Friendly crew and desk staff. Timely return of checked luggage. All good."
Pros: "Professional flight attendants"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and entertaining. We left about 5 minutes late yet arrived early. 2 rounds of drink service and cookies for about a four hour flight. Tablets available for rent as well as wifi. Would fly Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "check in at ohare was super easy. Also no security line. Friendly Staff."
Cons: "After push back we waited for about half an hour before we moved to the runway."
Pros: "I try to book Alaska when I can, they have good leg room for a taller person and their baggage fees are not outrageous like Spirit. You can tell the crew is not completely miserable doing their jobs and treat you like a human most of the time."
Pros: "Easy flight. Boarding was fine and the crew were friendly enough. The steward didn't come and see me much and I think I had one little snack and one beverage."
Cons: "No entertainment but I didn't really expect it on such a short flight."
Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."
Pros: "Friendliness"
Cons: "There was no entertainment (movies) on this long flight. Not an issue for me, but I know other airlines typically do have them."
Pros: "Plane had a delayed boarding and no explanation for the delay eas given"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "The cabin was to hot. Was sweating the majority of the flight."
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Cons: "Can I have a refund? My flight has been delayed 3 1/2 hours and then they add another delayed flight to leave from my gate ahead of us. Wonderful."
Cons: "Despite the staff who unloaded me in the isle chair having a great attitude, they were inexperienced."
Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("
Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"

Cons: "Sparse food."
Pros: "Seats were not bad - headrests actually fit my head right!"
Pros: "Great service and extremely friendly staff. Brand new plane. More economy legroom then other carriers"
Pros: "I liked the seats and comfort, nice crew an allt that."
Cons: "That we were late. I wasn't their fault cause it was because of the weather, but it made me stressed and I couldn't relax."
Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"
Pros: "After we got off the airplane, the flight attendants went out of their way to help a woman who had trouble understanding English find and get to the baggage claim. The service and kindness exemplified by the staff really made the whole experience wonderful."

Allow to suitcase for in

Very good service, all were ok/excellent

Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport.

Recommend Qatar Airways to everyone! Service, leg room, and food are all great.

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."
Pros: "Food is delicious"
Cons: "Paid WIFI this time was horrible for the half of the trip WIFI don’t work"
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"
Pros: "The flight crew/staff were professional and very helpful and accommodating to the passengers from check in to deboarding."
Cons: "Seats were a little close, especially for a long flight, with meals."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the onboarding staff was exceptional. Some onboarding staffs were unfriendly."
Cons: "Not allowing a laptop bag unlike Etihad, Emirates and other airlines was a bummer."
Pros: "Very courteous, friendly, professional flight crew and gate crew."
Cons: "Nothing to mention...very pleased"
Pros: "I was at airport 1 hour before the flight time But they already closed the gate, and I missed the flight, and my return flight is gone too Omg to much for me"
Cons: "I wish you can do something for me Because the tickets is really expensive"
Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"
Cons: "Refund my ticket"
Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"
Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"
Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"
Pros: "Delighteful experience"
Cons: "Better guidance at transit stop"
Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"
Pros: "Food was excellent and the crew updated us through out the flight"
Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"
Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"
Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."
Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."
Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"
Pros: "Great service and crew"
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."
Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."
Pros: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Cons: "Checkin crew was rude and was not at all respectful"
Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "It was excellent."
Cons: "It was excellent."
Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."
Pros: "Vegetarian food options"
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."

Flight did not depart due to the weather! Was a stuff around plus the aircraft did not have enough fuel

Another good flight newer plane therefore better seats. The landing was excellent!

The TSA screening is absolutely unnecessary. It is dehumanizing and has been proven to be in-effective!

Cons: "seat space"
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing Best flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats are never excellent"
Cons: "Delayed, seat didn’t recline"

Cons: "The check in area felt cramped, understaffed and like a 4th rate airline"
Pros: "The flight landed early. Check-in staff were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a debacle. Flight was oversold. Passenger had trouble boarding when their group was called."
Pros: "There was an available seat next to me"
Cons: "I had to walk from one end of Minneapolis airport to the other end all within 35 mins to catch a connecting flight, tram was not in service. Not fun!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Kat and the other stewards were very friendly."
Cons: "Maybe the option for free upgrade to first class if flight is not full??"
Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and graciously got the hot tea I wanted."
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Good snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "Cincinnati airport was clean and efficient"
Cons: "MCO airport gate was a mess and did not have easy access to charge phones."
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Extra leg room was great"
Cons: "Entertainment system was flickering"
Pros: "Enjoyed the ease of check in the spacious gate and the cleanliness of the planes cabin"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Cons: "Z"
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."
Pros: "Delta and Westjet staff are of great help to me."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Pros: "the majority of delta flights i've taken over the past few years have had huge issues - either long delays or cancellations. i won't be flying Delta again"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Somehow we were double booked and double billed. We got to the airport 3 hours early and checked our bags. All 3 were lost and searched. Everything was put back precariously and there was shampoo and lotion everywhere."
Pros: "i love the view from the window seats and that I was able to relax and the snacks."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable"
Cons: "In order to leave airport on time (plane came in late) they claimed overhead space was full and that remainder boarding passengers had to check their bags. (Bags to be picked up in baggage claim) When walked into plane saw plenty of overhead space for carryons!"

Flight delays both going and return flights

Pros: "Free wine and beer service"
Cons: "Gate agents, re-booking"
Pros: "On time; easy boarding check-in"
Cons: "It would be such a nice touch if you could set up coffee and breakfast snack in the terminal waiting area."
Cons: "Flight delayed but good"
Cons: "Honestly, even if the aircraft was delayed, there is nothing one can do and just be patient. Lunch and dinner vouchers were issued, that was well appreciated!"
Cons: "Leaving on time!"
Cons: "Time to de-board took some time"
Cons: "Nothing really. Maybe new planes ?"
Pros: "The crew is really good. Super nice and attentive."
Cons: "Honestly, while the flight delay was a hassle. Probably nothing because flight delays happen. My bag was placed on the next flight. But your crew’s attitude made it all better."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Thank you for using glasses and not plastic!!!!!!"
Cons: "Wish I could fly them all the time. Really a great experience."
Pros: "Flight was late but importamt is, it was safe take off and landing. Very nice service, good welcome staff and there was free snaks and drinks. Wonderfull overall"
Cons: "May be proper update online or more announcements. But because of weather it is understable."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing was bad"
Pros: "Good timing. No delays"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out my frequent flier number and the call-in centre wanted me to wait for some crazy amount of time to figure it out. Kind of insulting."
Cons: "Noisy aircrafts"
Pros: "The attitude of crew was good and comfortable seats and good service we shoul have plug to charge devices"
Pros: "Crew were very professionally and very attentive to my needs as a mom traveling with an infant."
Pros: "It was quick and easy to board the plane with no dlays"
Cons: "A little bumpy"
Pros: "Snacks and pleasant mannerism of the stewardess"
Pros: "I had an excellent flight back home. We left about 15 late but the pilot made up the time so arrival in TO was on time"
Cons: "Pd392 seat I sat in was a bit uncomfortable it appears to be sinking in the center unlike the plane plane i took from TO to Chicago"
Pros: "Service of crew and snacks"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "To avoid additional headache when passengers are boarding the plane, I would recommend boarding the “first class” first then start with the back seats then make your way to the front seats. It will be a much smoother process when getting everyone onto the plan."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The earlier flight departure times are really good, the traffic is not jammed yet on the 401 and GEW. Custom waiting times are basically non existing in comparison to Pearson. Planes are relatively on time (only flew 4 times with Porte), staff is friendly. The turboprop planes have more legroom than most others. I do like them, and do recommend Porter."
Pros: "it was such a smooth flight"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "Comfy large seats. Great service"
Cons: "Little slow to leave"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "Highly recommend it"
Pros: "Staff was nice everywhere during this trip."
Cons: "I was charged $40 for my bag at O'hare because my booking to Montreal was done as two separate tickets (as the staff explained)....?!?! Kayak how do you do this and not tell your customer? $40 dollars is not a lot but I definitely feel cheated!"
Pros: "Nice crew, snacks and drinks, good price, calm experience."
Cons: "All flights delayed by 1 hour. Maybe equipment logistics could be better."
Pros: "Literally nothing. Even the free beer and wine didn't make up for this company!!"
Cons: "Our flight to Chicago was cancelled, we didn't get so much as an email letting us know (checked the flight status at 1am for a 8am flight and it said on time) we found out at the porter counter at the airport that or flight was cancelled and we were delayed until the next day!!! Next day we realize they didn't schedule us on the first OR second flight of the day but the third so we were delayed by 36 hours instead of 24!!!! The planes are tiny, very old, quite dirty. The staff seem totally non chalant about all these cancelled flights and allllll of the delays and repeatedly say that the airline is understaffed... hello i don't care why my vacation was cut short by 36 hours and i got stuck paying 200$ for a hotel room tat i didn't get to stay in!!! Get your act together Porter!!!!"
Pros: "Everything else... the whole Porter Experience brought me back to what air travel used to be like... I will fly Porter again. Even a long weather delay was more tolerable because the waiting area was more like a Flight Club experience."
Cons: "Baggage rules seemed to be enforced arbitrarily... gate Checking was routine... but I was forced to pay to check a bag."
Pros: "- Staff/crew are exceedingly pleasant, although not necessarily 100% helpful - Free beer and great snack options onboard are a nice departure (see what I did there??) from the usual in-flight experience. - When they significantly messed up my entire first day of travel, without complaint they sent me a voucher for future travel."
Cons: "- My first flight was delayed and I wasn't notified until an hour beforehand (even though the flight was delayed due to an incoming flight they knew well ahead of an hour beforehand would not be there). I could have arrived at the airport later and paid less for my parking. - I was told by a gate agent I would still make my very tight connection (spoiler alert - I did not), so I did not ask to be rebooked on a later connection immediately. - Once it became clear I would likely miss my connection due to being delayed after boarding, I asked again about it, this time of a flight attendant. I was told there were 23 daily flights a day to my connecting city (there are not) and it would be fine. We sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes after landing waiting for a gate and the last hope of making that connection was gone. - Upon arrival in Toronto it turns out my connecting flight was cancelled and everyone had to be rebooked. The very pleasant customer service rep told me not to worry! They automatically rebook everyone and I've been scheduled to leave 10 flights later - the following morning. At 12:45 p.m. their best solution was a flight at 8:30 the next morning (later canceled). When I calmly explained that was not ideal, I was immediately given the "last seat out today" on a 9:30 flight (later delayed then canceled). I'm not sure who they were saving that for, but it is unacceptable to rebook people for the next day when they have free seats. I was resigned to spending 9 hours in the terminal (literally just a room with a few snacks) because I was also on standby for every flight until then, and fortunately after checking in again 5 hours later, I was handed a ticket for the flight leaving in 15 minutes. If I had followed Porter's original plan, I have no idea when I would have made it, as I already mentioned both of those other flights were later canceled and I've already gone over how Porter rebooks passengers. - I found out after I spent $20 Canadian on a sandwich and chips via the Porter website that they are supposed to give meal vouchers in a significant delay, but I was not offered one. - On the way back, I saw myself being set up for the same rigmarole. My first flight was delayed more than a half hour, leaving me with a very tight connection. Thankfully, I arrived at the airport earlier and was able to catch an earlier flight because as it turns out, the connecting flight I would have missed due to the delay ended up being canceled. I can only imagine what the rebooking process would have been, so I am glad Porter is accommodating about switching flights. I imagine they do so to save them the rebooking later, but still, it is not something all airlines will do. - Both flights out to Montreal were incredibly hot. I tend to run cold and I was sweating. The flights home on a warmer day were fine, so I'm not sure what was going on there."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice. Timely boarding."
Cons: "Very small plane with only one bathroom."
Cons: "They were not organized. Delayed every flight and cancelled two flights and offered no complemsation. I thought there'd be better customer service."
Pros: "Snacks and the complimentary wines"
Cons: "Flight attendant did not allow earbud headphone during landing. I have not seen this in other airlines."
Pros: "My trip going to Toronto has been canceled on friday and moved for the following day, I had to by another flight going to toronto so i don't miss the commitement i had this is not acceptable they should have offered me to place my flight for another time"
Pros: "Free wine & beer! :)"
Pros: "All the complimentary food and drinks, really nice staff and comfy and elegant seatings."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "There needs to be better coordination, or perhaps the actual truth, regarding making connections when first flight is delayed. Also, correct info regarding the location of facilities when one has to pick up bags after immigration and drop them off before security for second flight. I have traveled to Canada many times before and Porters personnel were among the least helpful I have ever encountered in over 30 years of regularly coming North."
Pros: "The flight was on time and overall it's a smooth travel experience. Definitely recommend to friends n family."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "I liked nothing!"
Cons: "Re: my flight to Toronto where I met someone who spoke Spanish. I started a nice conversation with her and in the back I understood a couple of Americans using racist terms directed towards us. No one on the flight staff stepped in to interject or intervene. Maybe they did not hear the comments but it was difficult not to. I believe they avoided the issue and I was left feeling uncomfortable and discriminated against in a seat I paid $400+ for. I should not have to feel that way when paying so much for a service and I will not be recommending Porter to anyone or using your airline again without a proper response from Porter."
Pros: "A flight is a flight"
Cons: "Flirght was delayed because of weather, fine. We learn about the delay after the time for departure was passed . Initially a fifteen min delay become 30. No communications, everyone standing in line until we are called to board by a teenager . It was too icy to get on the tarmack so we got to stay in a damp corridor until they clear the way. When we got in the plane , after some wait we are told the plane need de-icing. It took one hour before they finally got it done. All this time the Porter web site was useless. It even said we departed. All the aggravation could have been avoided if Porter would be more transparent about their delay and had better ground coordination with the airport personnel"
Pros: "The service and the crew,."
Cons: "The connecting flight was delayed by 1h30 ."
Cons: "Flights were delayed both directions"
Pros: "없음"
Cons: "비행기 지연, 4시간 30분 기다림. 예정 도착시간보다 5시간 늦게 도착"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Entertainment n/a hence the one star. My flight was surprisingly affordable and I felt like I was being treated well because porter serves their cold beverages in these mini glasses made of glass (not plastic cups) with 'porter' written on them. I also got a complimentary snack on this 1.5h flight vs my parents who took a different 5h flight with AC and they got no complimentary snacks. It's the little things that make a difference these days. I also loved the Billy Bishop airport. We landed around sunset so the view of the skyline was beautiful and we were right at the water."
Cons: "It would be nice if the pilot would tell us what state we are flying over or give us information about what we are looking at out the windows. We only get -we are experiencing a bit of turbulence or we will begin our descent in about 20 minutes. They may see the view all the time and know where they are but we don’t fly much and would like to know."
Pros: "Onboarding was easy and smooth. The plane was clean and the seats were comfortable. WiFi easily connected, too. Much better than expected for a budget airline."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Legroom bad for tall guy."
Pros: "Nothing. Delayed for 4 hours. No time change updates were ever provided at the airport. No communications provided as to why our flight was delayed. No other options given. No food or drink vouchers given & of course, no discounts provided for future travel. Not that would EVER fly Sun Country again"
Cons: "Communication and updates. At the very least, food and drink vouchers. 4 hours is a LONG time to be delayed. Extra points had the airline reimbursed their $40 ONE WAY bag fee regardless whether it’s a carry on or checked luggage."
Cons: "My seat was hard and worn out."
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours due to rain that lasted about 30 minutes"
Pros: "Crew and gate staff very helpful (see below)."
Cons: "I needed wheelchair assist at both ends. In each case I was waiting over 30 min. At the departure end there was a danger of missing the flight so one of the gate staff wheeled me, Amina was amazing. Another long wait at SFO. I spent almost as much time waiting for wheelchairs as I did on the flight!"
Pros: "Seats were great, loved that there were movies to watch."
Cons: "I didn’t care for the snack but glad there was ginger ale. The snack really didn’t affect my experience and I’m okay."
Pros: "Not crowded, and enough space"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "I got to change my seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. Our flight was delayed and we were not updated nor given a reason as to why."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, and the boarding was VERY quick!"
Cons: "Don’t advertise onboard WiFi/entertainment if you don’t have it"
Cons: "$40 carry on each way, garbage. Would have bought ticket elsewhere if I knew that"
Cons: "They lost my bag!"
Cons: "there was a hurricane and we couldn't make the flight since they where evacuating were our house is. we are still hoping the airline will work with us on our tickets. we would like to fly this week to ckeck it out. we would love to hear if you can help us."
Pros: "Wasn't there"
Cons: "Wasn't there"
Cons: "My knees knocked into the sweet/ no legroom"
Pros: "Very professional, genial, and efficient gate agents and flight crew."
Cons: "Stripped down no frills, uncomfortable plane and services."
Pros: "The staff checking us in did a fine job and the crew got us on scheduled getting us there."
Cons: "Terrible leg room, uncomfortable seats, it has really become a cheap cheap airline compared to what it used to be."
Cons: "Ticket agents Zahara and Consuelo decided I had to pay $40 to carry on a bag on return flight that I had carried on on my destination flight for no charge, as I was steps away from boarding the plane. Very same agents that checked me in at ticketing and said nothing about my carry on bag. This airline extorts money from passengers, pay up or miss your flight"
Pros: "Service, smiles, great trip"
Cons: "nothing to improve"
Pros: "Left on time. Very nice people at check in."
Cons: "Baggage fee, seat fees, very cramped seating, no complimentary food, flight attendant Nicole, very snooty - never smiled, bordering on rude."
Pros: "I loved the fact that they provided us with food vouchers and a ticket voucher when the flight was late. Thank you! The crude is extremely friendly"
Pros: "Smooth Trip!"
Cons: "No internet. I needed to work. I didn't even know flights didn't have internet anymore. Uncomfortable seats. Dirty plane. The flight was much too expensive for this."
Pros: "Missed my friends wedding"
Cons: "I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "The crew was great. I only gave 5 stars for comfort because the was one empty seat and I could stretch out a bit. I didn't have any food or rent a digital player. The flight was smooth and I loved that it was nonstop."
Cons: "Boarding was quite long and everybody was backed up the whole length of the jetway."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The check-in on the website was difficult; there were numerous error messages generated, which required a telephone call to resolve, and I never received what was supposed to be emailed boarding passes."
Pros: "Very easy connecting in the Sun County terminal in Minneapolis. Gates are close together and there are many restaurants."
Cons: "No complementary food, no complementary entertainment, older plane."
Cons: "My fight was excellent no food thought"
Pros: "I lost my flight and they found another one right after for me ! They were really nice !"
Pros: "We got exit row seating for free"
Cons: "We didn't know if we would be seated together and I reserved seats in advance and I think was upgraded to exit row but not sure. Also not sure how to reserve return flight seats to make sure we are together."
Pros: "Liked that it was direct flight"
Cons: "Made reservationn on February for flight in June. No seat assignment until I approached boarding area and attendant took my boarding pass and said i would be assigned seat. I was asigned seat and was able to board in advance of geneal boarding but I don't understand why seats are not able to be chosen when reservations are made that far in advance. Price of adult beverage higher than other airline I frequently use."
Cons: "Check in counter should always have someone there"
Pros: "Quick boarding, organized by section, starting from the back makes it faster to board."
Cons: "I booked the flight because my previous flight (Spirit airlines) was cancelled very last minute. I booked this flight and then was informed that it was delayed more than 3 hours. I was unable to work with another delay and was forced to cancel this flight within hours of booking it. I was charged $15 to cancel the flight. So I paid for a flight that was sold to me and not on time and then charged for cancelling it within hours. This was incredibly disappointing."
Pros: "I liked on the way there that the pilot came on a few different times with announcements with is very calming to get updated. This used to be a given; however, it isn't anymore so this was nice. plenty of seat room."
Cons: "turbulence was pretty bad on our flight both ways. Pilot on the way back began descent and all standard announcements were made by flight crew, several minutes later he finally announced he was landing. The price"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew members; helped me deal with some disability issues without problems. I'd say rating should be VERY good (no category for it). Seats were a little uncomfortable. Thank you!"
Pros: "Amazing check in staff and amazing attendants. Very very comfortable flight from Ft Myers back to Minneapolis."
Pros: "Red eye flight so did not do announcements during flight..nice and quite"
Pros: "I liked that it was a direct flight and you could pay just a little extra and sit where you wanted. Because the ticket was so cheap to start with, I was able to do this. I paid extra for an exit row and it was worth it! Plus not at all crowded, unlike most of the flights I've been on recently."
Cons: "The seats are very close together!!! They don't provide any snacks, but if you know this going in, you can be prepared."
Pros: "Prompt flights"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was about an hour late taking off and boarding was interrupted part way through the process so there were some people sitting in the plane for all this time and some people sitting inside the airport boarding area for all this time. No explanation whatsoever was given about what was going on. The aisles on the plane were so narrow that I could just barely roll my carry-on bag down it. The head of the guy sitting in front of me was almost in my lap. I couldn't even lower my tray table all the way down to a flat position to set my beverage upon because his seat was so close to mine. When the flight was almost to its destination, we had to circle the airport for awhile because Obama was landing at this time too. We were never told of this possibility until it actually happened. Why not ? We arrived about an hour and a half later than our scheduled time. With all these inconveniences to us, absolutely nothing complimentary was given to us passengers to make up for their incompetence and how our travel plans may have been disrupted. This was a bad experience and my last with Sun Country."
Pros: "Nice people, easy boarding, very friendly attendants on board."
Cons: "can the seats get any closer together? I'm skinny and I couldn't cross my legs without sticking them into the isle first."
Pros: "I like that I got on the plane first"
Cons: "Forced to by an exit row seat for extra money because of a "full flight" but when the doors shut there were at least 10 seats open that did not cost extra. No free in flight snack and they Nicole and dime you"
Pros: "Every one is warm and friendly"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The stewardess were rude"
Pros: "Sun Country was able to move me to an earlier flight and I really appreciated that."
Cons: "It would have been nice if the pilot would have announced what we were flying over. There was beautiful scenery that I couldn't identify."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and very hospitable. I really enjoyed the flight overall and had a nice time and will be flying again but i do hope to see a change at the check in counter."
Cons: "But I waited at the check in counter for 1 1/2 before i could check in at LAX, when some did come they called me next then answered there phone making me and everyone behind me wait while the person spoke the there mom, i understand there are family things that are important and things happen but i felt highly disrespected as a flier because i am paying for this flight. In the end he did not excuse himself or apologize or step away he was on the phone for 5mins set in on the counter and checked me in, in silence not speaking to me at all."
Pros: "3.5 hours, no food or entertainment offered"
