Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Premium economy seat was tolerable"
Cons: "Plane was too warm for comfort. Hell was getting from concourse N to C at SeaTac with the train OOC."
Pros: "We had exit rows so had extra leg room. Makes a long flight more comfortable"
Cons: "Our overall experience was pleasant and without incident. Flights also left on time"
Pros: "Crew was not amazing, no service offerd (not even water), only snacks and no beverage service. When I went to restroom, I asked crew who were watching TV and chatting for a glass of water, got a nasty stare, the water, and no acknowledgement of my thank you. Captain very open with taxi info."
Cons: "Polite flight attendant, at least service for those of us who can't sleep even on overnight flights. Middle seat not great but okay, everything else on ground in Kona lovely as usual."
Cons: "Better handling of boarding passengers when there was a known mechanical failure that needed to be dealt with. We were boarded and deplaned twice. Then after getting to a new plane, they ran out of food for half the cabin for a 6 hour flight resorting to serving water and biscotti cookies"
Cons: "No drink service - not even water."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, boarding was fine."
Cons: "The seat cushions were the most uncomfortable of any I've been on. My buttocks were on fire by 3 hours out."
Pros: "Updates on flight"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "On time,comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and professional"
Cons: "We had to make an emergency medical landing which is fine it had to be done. But then we had to wait a while for catering to come and bring us food. Most of us had already gotten off the plane to use the restrooms and get food. Then because the caterers took to long they cancelled the food order and told us they were having fingers out food vouchers. It was annoying g cause we had already gone and gotten food and spent our own money. Now everyone booked it off the plan to get food and we now waited another hour for people to come back. So altogether the plane was delayed 4 hours they could have just given us the food on the plane for free."
Cons: "Only food available on a flight that was 5 1/2 hours was food that had to be purchased. I think this is ridiculous."
Pros: "Leg space!!!! Finally some room 4 my long legs! Food excellent. I ate cheese & fruit plate. Delicious! Good timing. Great!! Left & arrived in time OR EARLY!"
Cons: "Once plane landed, it took 4ever 2 get out."
Pros: "In Denver, the boarding process was well organized and directed by clear announcements and boarding lanes."
Cons: "In Seattle, the boarding process was chaotic and mismanaged. The ground staff gave confusing and ambiguous instructions that resulted in everyone forming a large, disorganized throng in front of the gate agent. It was as if they said "everyone get on the plane immediately, and we are only taking the first 30 people"."
Pros: "Charging capabilities with easy access!"
Pros: "Flight departure and arrival was on time. Staff even helped move our seats so family could sit together."
Cons: "Nothing I did not like."
Cons: "5 hour flight and no comp meal served. Hot / stuffy / no air flow coming out of vents. Aircraft: 737 -900."
Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"
Pros: "1) Attendant crew was nice. 2) Appreciated being able to board from front and rear."
Cons: "1) Flight time delayed, so late arrival ~12am was made even later ~12:30am 2) Booked two tickets together months ago, yet we were not allowed to sit together. 3) Entertainment required the downloading of the gogo app which should have been done on the ground with wifi and/or cellular data. in the air, one window said you could (wait) and download, while another window effectively said, "better luck next time". Pre-flight email should have warned passengers to download beforehand. 4) Exiting plane only allowed from front; took forever from our next-to-last row."
Pros: "Flight staff very attentive and friendly - I love flying Alaska!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."
Cons: "Flight delayed by two and half hours. And then luggage delivered after 25 minutes of landing."
Cons: "Only 1 flight attendant in first class for 16 passengers, as the other one disappeared most of the time, and when asked for help she actually refused, saying she was only helping coach class! Dinner service took almost 3 hours. Never asked if we wanted wine or another drink with dinner."
Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"
Cons: "I paid for my ticket full price through kayak but my ticket was apparently what the industry calls a non-revenue ticket meaning I was on the standby list and had to Hope people didn't come. I ended up getting the last seat on the plane and was in serious Jeopardy being left behind"
Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."
Pros: "Finally, a plane designed with some comfort in mind! It was easy to move and find a comfortable way to sleep."
Cons: "No pillows to purchase!"
Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."
Cons: "Again, the size of the plane, interior."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on-time, onboard service was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic and confusing."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "The staff at my connection in Seattle were not the friendliest."
Cons: "terrible flight, very unfriendly flight attendants."
Pros: "I generally prefer to fly with Alaska Airlines. Reasonable fares, good service, good flight itineraries from PDX. My mobile carrier provides complimentary in-flight Wi-Fi. I'm no Starbucks fan but grudgingly admit to enjoying the coffee service."
Cons: "It would be good to see fewer disposals used in the food service but the cabin crew must be given kudos for separating recyclables as they collect waste from passengers."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional; boarding was rushed; cabin was clean, but seating was very cramped; entertainment was v good (and currently free) using own tablet, phone, or smart phone."
Pros: "The flight offered was a direct flight. They offer preboarding for families with children under 2."
Cons: "The seats on this flight are so close together your shoulders literally touch your neighbors shoulders while sitting normally in your seat. This is unacceptable. When will airlines finally get it? People deserve to sit in their own seat without being on top of their neighbor."
Pros: "It was my first time flying with Alaska. I was pleasantly surprised with the boarding times, organization, super-friendly crew, free entertainment (a few select movies with complimentary tablets to view them on), and outlets for charging mobile devices in every seat. Easily the best flight I've had in a couple years. I will fly with Aaska again."
Cons: "I felt like the aisle was unusually small ( I was sitting in an aisle seat and was occasionally bumped by people walking by me. Then again, I was in a deep sleep most of the time and could have easily been leaning into the aisle....I'm not really sure. Overall though, best flight I've had in a while. They really do a great job."
Pros: "POG was available from the beverage cart. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "We were assigned two middle seats in different rows for a five hour flight! Flight attendants were rude. The bathrooms were a mess. Complimentary food for a five hour flight is a bag with nine, dime-sized pretzels."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment tablet I rented ($10) was really nice. It had some very new movies, fun games and more on it. Most of the flight crew was kind and polite, minus one woman who seemed to hate her job and the airline. I was pleased that the flight wasn't canceled as many others into PDX had been that day due to an ice storm. Felt safe even with turbulence and threat of a slippery landing."
Cons: "One crew member, an older woman, seemed really bitter. She openly expressed frustration with Alaska in front of passengers on multiple occasions and was very rude and brusque with us customers. She made me feel like a nuisance for even just being on the flight. Otherwise the seats were just so small and uncomfortable. It was a long flight to feel smushed and have a sore tailbone from the total lack of padding."
Pros: "Everything was just fine."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and helpful. The flight left late but arrived at the destination early. I have flown Alaska for years and other than the food I have no complaints."
Cons: "The food choices are Chicken or Cheese and fruit. On a 6 hour flight the only free food is a very small package of pretzels. For people who do not eat chicken there is very limited food."
Pros: "Fast flight. Friendly crew. Switched me to a sooner flight so I wouldn't have to drive home real late."
Cons: "Wasn't too much to dislike. Was a very good flight."
Pros: "Short and direct flight from kona to anchorage, love it"
Cons: "Internet was down at the airport, caused delays, but all good , I have always hsd pretty good experience with alaska air"
Pros: "They had a limited selection of free WiFi TV programs you could watch and charging ports on the seats."
Cons: "The only snack option was pretzels, take off was delayed on both departure and the connecting flights. The seats were OK for comfort, but the plane was HOT while sitting on the tarmac during boarding and waiting and waiting to take off."
Pros: "We were lucky and had a seat open between us. Comfortable, and crew were great."
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Pros: "I missed all my appointments"
Cons: "I have to pay $200 for a ride . I'm very hungry and very tired."
Pros: "Easy flight. No issues."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "To be able to upgrade, charging stations at my seat, generous beverages"
Cons: "No free baggage, unclear coomunication about check in and choosing seats, was not offered my free drink."
Pros: "Friendly staff and very helpful at getting our boarding passes and luggage checked."
Cons: "The need to clean their planes before letting passengers board. Food stuck on trays and spilled drink and food on seat. Don't bother using your own device (ie. ipad). There really isn't much to see without paying for it. No internet on this flight."
Pros: "They were on time. We went economy. We got what we paid for. Brought our own lunch. I would recommend it. Flight attendants were good. No surprises!"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "I know it was a night flight but the food choice Was very limited."
Pros: "The time and effort the Kona ground crew spent looking for and finding my drivers license that I had lost on the plane, without it I could not have rented a vehicle in Kona. Exceeded my wife and I's expectations. Very enjoyable experience."
Cons: "We arrived at the Kona airport more than an hour before departure and the Alaska agent seemed irritated that we didn't arrive earlier. Admittedly most of the flight's passengers had already been checked in and were already in the boarding area."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."
Pros: "The flight left on time and the crew were pleasant and efficient. Best of all, we had ample legroom in our economy seats. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "While we were waiting to board, we heard an announcement by American Airlines, allowing currently serving military members and their families to board with the VIPs. I think that is wonderful idea!"
Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"
Pros: "All else was great."
Cons: "It was too hot on plane. Had all vents but still too hot and stuffy."
Pros: "That we could sleep during the flight. The attendants left us alone when we were sleeping."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."
Pros: "On time, arrived even half an hour early on the way back. Staff in flight and checking in at YVR amazing. Overall, good spacing for knees between rows, staff awesome, flight on time sharp... great experience so far!"
Cons: "Staff at checking in kiosk at LAS wasn't so friendly."
Pros: "Overall everything"
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."
Pros: "Pleasant flight food and entertainment no used crew helpful and courteous comfort ... seats too close as always but plenty of bin space due to them asking people to check carry on luggage for free ...great idea"
Pros: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"
Cons: "no vegan options on the plain no tv screens"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
Pros: "Kayak is cool. Westjet is meh."
Cons: "Both departure and return flights delayed by over an hour. All I hear is the same reason over and over again. Figure it out."
Pros: "Direct flight from my hometown of Palm Springs Ca to Vancouver Canada"
Cons: "Left late and I arrived 35 min late had to go through customs and didn't make it from international to domestic. Rebooked a flight 3 hours later for $75."
Pros: "Crew was excellent especially Taylor"
Cons: "This flight is always late to leave and always gate changes. Maybe the time should be permanently changed. I have caught this flight 3 times and each time the same issue"
Pros: "Soft voice of flight attendants with such an early flight."
Cons: "Paying for food. Paying for luggage. Movies in a loop, not on demand. Missed beginnings of all movies I watched."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was great. Especially because the WestJet agents named Kelsea and Sarah who were a pleasure to deal with. They successfully accommodated my request to sit with my new wife! Thank you so much!!"
Pros: "The staff were very kind while still being efficient. It was a pleasant and smooth flight."
Pros: "It was fast, friendly and over all made me impressed."
Pros: "Smooth, cost effective and friendly staff."
Cons: "The seats are appropriately spaced but still too narrow for anyone with shoulders. Friendly and helpful flight staff."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not so much entertainment like music or movies to watch. Why do you need to download the west jet apps just to get something to watch doesn't make any sense..."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was shipshape and organized. Every crew membe r we talked with seemed knowledgeable and friendly. Good value."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Hour+ delay"
Cons: "You had to have a computer / cell phone to see the movies. In their next fleet of aircraft Westjet should go back to big screens or back of seat screens and have the computer option there as well."
Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."
Cons: "6 hours delay"
Pros: "The flight was pretty good specially during landing"
Pros: "Check-in agent in Kelowna was nice as were gate agents. The seats were fine even though we were in the back of the small plane. Flying in and out of Kelowna brought back memories of flights long ago: no jet ways and prop planes. It was nice they had a ramp rather than stairs."
Cons: "Short flight so only water to drink and pretzels or cookies if desired."
Pros: "On time, smooth and amazing views of snow capped mountains."
Pros: "Great service! Crew was very friendly and happy. Flight was online and landed early"
Cons: "No screen on the back of the chairs"
Cons: "Was too hot"
Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."
Pros: "When I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to AA failure at the gate. The woman at the westjet gate was super friendly and kind to me. She gave me a good seat and meal vouchers to get me through the night. Unlike AA who could not care less."
Cons: "I missed my flight but that not your fault."
Pros: "Crew did their best."
Cons: "Lost time on a short holiday by the delay and by the lost luggage. Shopping took time and cost me money."
Pros: "Got me to Vancouver on time"
Cons: "Economy seating really sucks"
Cons: "Food options"
Pros: "The crew was excellent despite the fact that we were delayed 3 hours due to a broken fuel pump. They were also nice enough to give us a free dinner due to the inconvenience, and let us come off the plane to stretch our legs while we waited. Overall, excellent job handling something that was out of their control."
Cons: "Was not very pleased with the fuel pump being broken. Not sure how far ahead they knew it was broken, but if they were able to tell me my flight would be delayed 3 hours earlier, I could have extended my vacation. Additionally, the selections on the Air Canada entertainment app are far worse than the Westjet ones."
Pros: "Flew economy from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Aircraft looked like a newer Airbus A320 with the new Air Canada branding (black lettering against white fuselage). Air Canada check in process has passengers use self service kiosks first and then take the tags and luggage to the counter. The employees at check in were all very efficient and made sure the line didn't get too long. The flight left on time. Every seat had personal entertainment system, and mine worked great. The flight attendants themselves were very professional."
Cons: "The in flight magazine was water damaged and somewhat soiled (probably from prior passenger's drink). I wish the on ground cleaning crew would take the time to inspect the seat back pockets."
Pros: "I flew through Vancouver from Boston on my way to Brisbane, Australia and back. I was nervous at first because of the 2 hour connection windows. This might be a testament to Vancouver Airport more than Air Canada. The entertainment was ok. It had a decent variety to select from but i only ended up watch a few things and entertaining myself or sleeping. I paid to sit in an exit aisle as I only had middle seats to select from. It was worth paying for the freedom to stretch your legs and get up anytime without disrupting your row."
Cons: "The food was ok, I personally wish the drink cart came by more often so I didn't feel rude asking the air hostess each time. They were always very accommodating though."
Pros: "It flew from point a to b safely"
Cons: "Last time I saw a similar cabin was when I was 10! I'm 37 now. The overhead baggage bins were made for small bags from a different century. seats were grey....grey. In flight entertainment was by app...that you have to download first, I should have known beforehand. Food was little munchies. Seemed like an old and tired airline"
Pros: "Great service from the staff and crew. Comfortable flight in every conceivable aspect!"
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The screens in front of the seats didn't work for everyone. They attempted to fix the system by restarting it, but the problem remained unfixed."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."
Cons: "Took forever to board"
Pros: "Not much to compliment on. The flight did offer a great selection of movies to choose from during the trip."
Cons: "Constant flight delays. We were left on the runway for two hours before taking off due to an issue with the laboratory. The plane was overpacked, not allowing much personal space even in the aisle seat. People were sleeping on the floor and some in the aisles, creating a tripping hazard to those wanting to stand and stretch or walk to the restrooms. Those who attempted to sleep in their seat found that the seats were very uncomfortable and had very little to no leg room. When it came time to land at our destination, we ended up having to circle the airport for an additional 35 mins waiting for the terminal to free up. It was a very long 10hr flight that even the nice selection of movies to choose from couldn't help. Terrible flight experience, Canadian Air has really gone down hill."
Pros: "Long wait for ticketing and at customs during transfer"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Pros: "Meals were good and I do like the premium economy seats."
Cons: "One issue that the premium economy seats have is that they recline button is very stiff to push. Then when you have final pushed it in then push back on the seat it falls to the full recline position, potentially surprising the passenger behind. I thought this was isolated to this flight but have now encountered in 2 subsequent flights in AC premium economy."
Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "All passengers and crew arrived alive. Flight attendants were very helpful and nice. Price for this trip is much cheaper than comparable flights with other airlines."
Cons: "Extra charge for any checked bags at all is awful. Couldn't get a meal on flight, even for a price. Just miserable tiny snacks. Flight left late and arrived late, apparently because schedulers didn't bother to make allowances for deicing at previous stop. In-flight Air Canada app didn't work either on my ipAD OR MY LAPTOP."
Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."
Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Entertainment, Crew, Boarding"
Cons: "Had to pay for food"
Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "Meal -"
Pros: "It's been a long time since I flew Air Canada . Great flight, blanket and pillow provided - seats, movies and and a lot of snacks. Worth the money for a long flight :)"
Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."
Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system. Spacious seating for economy class."
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Different announcements for boarding occurred almost simultaneously, making it hard to understand what was being said."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Other than the rude employee in Vancouver's ticket and baggage counter, I'd fly Air Canada all the time if I could. SO much better than any of the other commercial airlines."
Cons: "We had a 10 hour layover in Vancouver, which would have been fine except that we had to get our luggage and recheck it the following morning. This left us outside of security, unable to go anywhere to rest. No one expects to be comfortable when you spend the night in the airport, but this was worse. No where to sleep, no decent chairs to rest in. We weren't sure why, since our connecting flight to Seoul South Korea was also Air Canada, our luggage had to be picked up at baggage claim, held on until the following morning, then rechecked. The clerks at the Air Canada ticket and baggage counter were supposed to be opened at 9, but an incredibly rude employee snapped at me that he didn't have time to talk to me, that I'd just need to wait until 9:30 when they opened."
Pros: "Everything and I have alot if air miles under me.The flight crew was great. The aircraft was great."
Cons: "The food could have Ben a little been a little better."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."
Pros: "The flight attendant in Business class was absolutely fantastic. Very friendly, attentive, and fun. She made the trip special."
Cons: "Business were regular seats, but for such a small plane I understand."
Pros: "It was a nice flight up the coast and there were no problems"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like about the flight."
Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"
Pros: "The flight was excellant. Something that horizon air needs to aspire too."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."
Pros: "I really liked how updated the plane was. The wine selection was very good. The entertainment had plenty of things to do - movies and TV shows were updated. I enjoyed the ice cream, that was a very nice treat!"
Cons: "I thought the food was not as good as the flight over to the UK - the mashed potatoes didn't look or taste like it had any real components at all and the bread was a little stale."
Pros: "Great crew and good wine!"
Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"
Cons: "Return flight delayed. No Reason given"
Cons: "Canceled flight Toronto to vancouver BC missed our connecting flight, no option from airlines to provide accommodation or alter net transportation to final destination (Portland OR). Has to spend additional money and time traveling due to that. Supper inconveniences by it!"
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."
Cons: "As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight, unless you are flying first class it's not going to be amazing."
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Pros: "From the views read I cannot say I had the same experience. Crew was helpful & kind. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
Pros: "Air Canada has treated me excellently every time I've flown with them. However, this connection was through United, which, on my flight to LAX, was delayed 3 hours. I should have known how this would go."
Cons: "Since this flight was delayed, I would not make my connecting flight to Tokyo. Flights with Air Canada to Tokyo were all booked that day, and several days afterward. I canceled my flight and am awaiting refund. I booked with another airline. I am severely disappointed with United's behavior. I've flown out of several countries from various airlines, and the US and US-based airlines are the only flight with consistent delays. It's honestly embarrassing. And I suppose, while I'm complaining, I'll add--as someone with a severe peanut allergy, it was important that this flight was with Air Canada, who actually cares about my safety. That I had to miss my flight and book with another, potentially dangerous airline, added to my dissatisfaction."
Pros: "efficient and communicative"
Cons: "Not necessarily United's problem, but I feel like the design of the seating could be more efficient. The 3 or 4 in a row seats can be super problematic if you have to use the bathroom and need to climb over a stranger to do it and they're asleep/3 times your size. Holding for 5 hours is not fun."
Pros: "Cabin was not cold"
Cons: "Respect passenger seat selection - we were downgraded from economy plus to economy with non reclining seats! Flight crew rude - referring to passengers as “bodies”!!! Entertainment system not working. Internet does not work on most of the flight!!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly.. a little delayed but that's ok..."
Cons: "These days, to get these kinds of "First class" doesn't seem so first class for the price. Lower the price or up your first class game..."
Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."
Pros: "The male flight attendant was friendly. The boarding personnel were friendly and apologetic for needing to check our carry ons."
Cons: "seats are so uncomfortable. no space."
Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"
Cons: "When did a garment bag become a third luggage. Terrible company"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."
Pros: "Nice flight crew served Illy coffee as a delightful beverage surprise Overnight flight was smooth and restful On-time departure and early arrival exceeded our expectations"
Cons: "No one let the children on their flight. Should have never been able to be booked on this site in the first place. Thanks. We just lost 600!!! Never using again"
Cons: "Cramped aisle with very little room. Not the most pleasant crew. They served no food as it was an overnight flight."
Pros: "The bar is pretty low with United. Even being a 1K member, I am usually just hoping the flight arrives on time. This time it didn't. The crew was polite, which isn't always the case."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."
Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"
Pros: "Kind staff."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable. Unbelievable for an overseas flight. Hard plastic commuter plane seats meant for short flights."
Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."
Cons: "Late start"
Pros: "My seat"
Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."
Pros: "Offered drinks and snacks."
Cons: "My suitcase's handle was damaged by the time it reached baggage claim. I will need to buy a new suitcase now."
Pros: "Overall this was an pretty average flight. The planes were on time and the service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."
Cons: "The plane had mechanical issues. they flew the plane that had mechanical issues to a Honolulu. spent eight hours in a Honolulu. had to catch a redeye to San Francisco. 12 hour layover caused us to have to pay for a rental car to get to our final destination Of Reno. I would hope that there would be some sort of compensation."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaos. By the time my group is called, an announcement is made about running low on overhead space and some may need to check in their carry ones. Happens on every United flight? On the flight from Vancouver, the wifi wasn't even working."
Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."
Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"
Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. My neck and lower back hurt afterwards. I do not recommend taking an overnight flight with united or do not expect to sleep if you do."
Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."
Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"
Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled out of Hawaii because crew didn't verify if radio equipment worked , changing all our flights and significantly increasing the travel time home. To top it off, they lost our suitcases. I'll never fly with united again ."
Pros: "Pilot and flight attendant communication"
Cons: "Seats too close. No food available for last 10 rows of plane. Way too long of a flight for there to be limited food availability."
Pros: "UAL gate agents were nice."
Cons: "TSA precheck still funnels in with non-precheck passengers and I had to take out my laptop even with precheck. Not efficient."
Pros: "The flight was packed, uncomfortable and not much to est that is healthy."
Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."
Pros: "Super Bowl Perks!!! & great service tight"
Cons: "As usual with all flights, tight seating"
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."
Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."
Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"
Pros: "Snacks were good. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Wifi doesn't work. EVER."
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"
Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."
Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."
Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."
Pros: "Check in was easy. bags made it."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway because of security "issue.""
Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Cons: "The plane is very old"
