Cons: "The attendants could have been more hospitable"
Pros: "The food was very good."

Cons: "There needed to be vegetarian options."
Pros: "Good service good flight fair food and nice seat."
Cons: "Biggest issue the start very lax re security, 2 people never wore their seatbelts at any time, take off and landing. They hardly checked anything."
Pros: "They have the best blankets! I always get cold but the blankets are nice and thick. The entertainment system was easy to use with a wide variety to choose from. The seats are comfortable and easy to sleep in. Overall just a great comfortable trip!"
Cons: "My seat wouldnt stay reclined. I spent the hole flight pressing the button back. During the night I needed the assistance of the flight atendent. I had to press the button three times so that anyone could come to me. Didnt find the crew very willing to repeat some needed information about the food too. The airplane was full and simply there werent enough toilets for this amout of people there. Honestly, it was a terrible experience."
Pros: "Good service, surprisingly good food, smooth and efficient."
Cons: "The premium seating we paid extra for because we need leg room (my partner and I are 6'+) was the first row behind the 1st class seperation wall...so no way to extend legs by placing feet under the seat in front. Not very comfortable or worth $100 IMO."
Pros: "Space, food and entertainment"
Cons: "It was late 20min"
Pros: "The boarding and take off is good-getting to the destination a bit ahead of schedule is welcoming"
Cons: "Flight attendants so ordinary in what they did, lack of professionalism, service so so, talk a lot but do little"
Pros: "Friendly, attentive staff. Good service. My toddler, husband and I boarded first because of our child, so we had plenty of time to get comfy on the plane. The flight attendants served sufficient drinks and snacks for the 1 hour flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours so my toddler and I had significantly longer to wait, which is not too fun. However, I understand this is unavoidable sometimes."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so I missed my connection to Brazil, was left stranded in Toronto for 24h without a hotel or restaurant voucher."
Cons: "crew was rude and unhelpful with delayed flight"
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Cons: "Both ways delayed, aircrafts dirty, no food as usuall and no customer service"
Cons: "My flight from NYC to Montreal was significantly delayed because the plane was late getting to NYC. This caused several passengers to miss our connecting flight to Quebec City. Air Canada put us on another flight that didn't depart until over 24 hours later! Despite our efforts, we were not offered any help in getting on an earlier flight, and the airline was unwilling to give us hotel vouchers or rental car vouchers. We paid for a rental car and drove ourselves from Montreal to Quebec City. Both of our returning flights were delayed as well. I understand things happen when traveling, but I expect some type of help/ reimbursement/ or sympathy (at a minimum) from the airline! This was my first and will be my only time flying Air Canada."
Pros: "Friendly staff. The 777-300 ER has high ceilings. Individual outlets available for electronic devices. Clean washrooms."
Cons: "Vegan menu needs improvement. No toothbrush or slippers issued. Movie collection was outdated and contained more Asian content."
Cons: "We flew from Toronto to Calgary, the original flight was suppose to be from Toronto to S.F. we were told that the original flight had been cancelled because the flights did not match up, the one coming from Aruba got in to late to make the connecting flight it was a nightmare i will probably never fly Air Canada again nor will i recommend to others"
Pros: "Lowest fare"
Cons: "Online checkin failed, airport kiosk couldn't handle how names are written on Japanese passports (it's English) and had to wait 2 hours on the line to check in because they were down to 1 agent toward the end. Made it to the gate just as boarding started. Very limited entertainment options for modern day airlines. Uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and kind"
Pros: "The flight attendants wet very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "The clerk helping with the boarding passes was very rude."
Pros: "Seats comfortable"
Cons: "No overhead bin for centre section of row that my seat was in made it very inconvenient. It seemed to take far too long to offload the plane at the gate; we waited over 10 minutes for the door to open."
Pros: "It was fine. :-)"
Pros: "The new airplane 787 is really a nice airplane"
Cons: "The flight delayed 1:45, making me lose my connection"
Cons: "There were several delays before boarding. The communication was poor, the announcements inaudible and the terminal chaotic. The flight had a lot of young children on it. There was an incredible amount of crying and screaming in the last half hour of the flight."
Pros: "Food good Choice of movies pretty good"
Cons: "Suitcase damaged No one in Detroit to process claim Amount of wine offered was somewhat meager for such a long flight"
Cons: "Everything. Crowded. Cramped. The curtain between First Class and Economy was archaic and insulting. On my departure flight, I had the unfortunate row that divided the elite from the peasants. IIt enabled me to see how the staff fawned over the Elite while we waited for minimal attention."
Cons: "They didn't let me board because I changed the original return ticket paying with a different credit card (still mine)...although they processed the payment and sent me a confirmation ticket"
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment were both good. Food can be improve."
Cons: "Boarding was bad in Zurich, unorganized. Need improvement"
Pros: "Decent video selection, staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Maintenance issues rendered all three of my flights delayed on my trip back from Japan. Last delay was 3 hours behind :( Food selection was subpar even for airline food."
Pros: "The plane flew in air and got us where we wanted to go but not on time"
Cons: "Everything else Breakfast a slice of banana bread !!! Nonchalant staff Getting water was trouble"
Pros: "Nothing fantastic but it was a good flight even after being delayed a while. Our plane had something wrong so they took us off the plane and we had to wait until they found a new plane for us, thank goodness we were in Canada at the hub where there must've been extra planes."
Cons: "I could not understand one word the stewardess said. I'm not sure if it was an accent thing or a speak too fast too close to the microphone thing but had it been an important message I wouldn't have made it. The music on the entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing to like about this airline. Horrible people especially in toronto, really unhelpful, extremely rude."
Cons: "Air line decided they didn't want me to take my connecting flight. Removed my luggage without consulting with me. Offered me a disgusting hotel. Forced me to pay out of pocket for food, taxis, transfers and my own hotel choice. Staff were so rude. No explanation to why they removed my bags. I made it in plenty of time for my connecting flight but airline had just decided. No staff member was interested in answering my questions or helping. They all just wanted to sod off home. they just didn't care."
Pros: "The flight attendants were awesome. Specifically the black lady with short hair, I don't remember her name but she was fantastic and super down to earth."
Pros: "No tv working. Surprise"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "The didn't include a meal or any wine/beer as most international flights do."
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
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: "It got me from point A to point B, without turbulence and much hassle."
Cons: "- Interior of Airplane was filthy. Walls blackened, greasy. Didnt want to touch anything, Bathroom was dirty. -One of the attendants was patronizing if not rude to guests. Sort of had bad attitude. I was spared any trouble however. -Food felt like jail food. Just the cheapest goop ever. -I understand it was a full flight with lots of Brazilians, so they didnt put much effort into it, but still, the least they should do is change their catering company."
Pros: "Legroom on the AC Jazz CRJ-705s is amazing. It's within an inch of what you would pay upwards of $50 for on carriers like United for 'Economy Plus', but standard with every seat on this plane. Having seat back entertainment on this RJ is always extremely appealing (especially on a 4 hour flight like mine), and the movie selection is fine."
Cons: "I was in seat 20F on this CRJ-705, which is an exit row. It's not news that exit rows tend to get cold during the flight, but the air coming out at my feet near the door was absolutely frigid. I wish I had stuck a water bottle or something down there, I honestly believe it could have frozen. Needless to say I was happy to be on the ground to thaw my extremely cold toes. If you like to wear open toed shoes flying, never ever ever sit on an exit row window seat! On a different note, I was annoyed AC didn't even provide a nominal snack during the flight. They had a standard complimentary beverage service, but only food for purchase on a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the aircraft was so cold. I think I caught a cold. The flight was delayed but not updated accordingly/promptly on web; so my ride ended up waiting at the airport about an hour in the cold snowy weather."
Pros: "the short flight"
Cons: "the comfort and location of seats ran around for days acquiring a doctors note for easy access seating. grateful for the refund but would've rather paid and actually been accommodated."
Pros: "Flight attendant very caring and friendly."
Cons: "Gate attendant very rude - made my daughter cry Her seat was way at the back. Baggage handlers lost a luggage strap - sturdy one 7 boarding pass The gate was changed to one at the end farthest from original gate It was supposed to be two flights - she ended up with 7 boarding passes in the end. Second really unpleasant flight with Air Canada in less than a year. Will avoid Air Canada from here on."
"United jerked us around. We had Business Class seats but were refused entry to the United Lounge because we were leaving for Boston from the International terminal where our flight landed. Really!?"
Pros: "Horrendous experience. 6 hours on the tarmac, followed by a another 7 hour delay. I missed my connecting flight in Sao Paolo - had to spend another $1300 to get to my final destination"
Cons: "Everything was terrible."
Cons: "It is unacceptable that United is still submitting its customers in business class to old planes and very old seats - including rows with four seats looking backwards with no separation between the seats (with the same issue on the window seats, which are double seats). Dreadful flight - my fare shall be refunded in full."
Pros: "How easy everything was"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Tight space and food could be better"
Pros: "I forgot my charger at the gate and the purser was so kind to help bring it back #unitedairlinecares"
Cons: "Nothing was a perfect flight"
Pros: "Overall wonderful trip"
Cons: "17L entertainment screen didn't work"
Pros: "Read the above. I was lucky to sit next to a charming young couple who made the travel time go quickly and fun."
Cons: "The food was as described above. Disappointing."
Pros: "This was a pretty typical United flight to SFO. Nice crew, nice plane, no issues."
Cons: "This is not on United, but LAX has a long way to go to reach that "wonderful airport experience." They keep broadcasting those security messages over and over and over - way too much. The airport employees, in general, are tired and jaded - very few were helpful. The terminal buses were way too few - I walked from T4 to T7 because I got tired of waiting. Not enough signage for folks not familiar with LAX"
Pros: "service was good. instructions in English & Portuguese."
Cons: "lavatories didn't work below 5,000 ft. It was extremely cold so I had to put on my coat. Seats of course are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "A comida"
Cons: "As cadeiras poderiam inclinar mais para trás."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "I had window seat"
Cons: "there was someone sitting in my chair who got angry and it was very rude because I asked him to sit in the right place. I had to put my carry far from me because he put his on my head."
Cons: "Late, no leg room and bad wifi"
Pros: "It was a brand new aircraft in it was a big one."
Pros: "Crew was fine, very friendly"
Cons: "Small sear back pockets, having to pay extra to take a carryon onboard!"
Pros: "CHECKIN Is long and awful."
Cons: "Staff rude"
Pros: "Had to cancel."
Cons: "WaIting for refund"
Pros: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Short flight.... no food or ENT. But quick easy and pretty on time. Thx."

Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical problems for four hours."
Pros: "Did not receive my flyer miles for the trip. Not good!"
Pros: "Jet was small, so a little less comfortable. Friendly staff. I got a refill on my beverage before they collected trash."
Pros: "This united flight was overbooked and crowded due to end of holiday season. But it was managed well. Got a great in flight entertainment and comfortable seats. Crew was very friendly and helpful. It was almost like flying international minus the lunch. Baggage was also handled well."
Cons: "Temperature inside was a bit weird. It felt hot some times and later it felt cold and then hot again."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was excellent. Handled communication and our delay very well. Things changes once we were off the plane."
Cons: "Technical difficulties happen but once we had to deplane the communication has been about non-existent. I'm just glad that I don't have to get a boarding pass for a connecting flight like a lot of others on the flight."
Cons: "Boarding in IAH was a mess. Several gate changes, airport information screens didn't match with the actual departure gate, lines were not properly identified. Very bad."
Pros: "Went as expected"
Pros: "Flying in America gave me no problems. Things only got terrible after we left Denver."
Pros: "There was nothing to like"
Cons: "Departed 45 mins late. Flight attendants too old, opinionated and grouchy for the job. Ground crew not any better."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. Crew was kind to allow me to use an empty seat in the middle row and get more space. Managed to connect to onboard entertainment with a tablet and avoided to use the tiny screen that still exists on United's 767s."
Cons: "Food was a bit tasteless."
Pros: "Crew was gracious, helpful, and courteous during a terrible and disruptive ordeal for passengers"
Cons: "Being stuck for nearly an hour sweating on a plane with no AC while mechanics were trouble shooting, only to find out that we had to exit the plane, and that it could not fly. Passengers had no idea what to do - whether another plane would be sent for us, whether United would reimburse our ticket if we arranged another flight on our own, etc. We were left to fend for ourselves. I had a wedding to get to with many pre-wedding events, starting this evening. So, I looked for another flight, found one, booked it, and went to United customer service to request reimbursement for my ticket. I was told that United had just learned that another plane was coming for us and would arrive in 30 minutes, at 8:10. (My original flight had been at 6:35). The other flight I had booked was at 10:30 pm. So, United customer service changed canceled my new booking and put me back to my original flight, now arriving at 8:10 and boarding at 8:50. The plane did arrive, but we did not board until 10:50 pm. My flight left at 11:02 pm. Bottom line is that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. I missed an important event that I was supposed to host. I missed my only opportunity to see a dear friend (and guest of honor) - this is someone I have not seen in person for ten years and was the guest of honor at tonight's celebration that I was supposed to host and missed. Furthermire, I could not carry on a bag that I have carried on for years, and that would have easiky fit. Having to check my bag left me without my phone charger. Of course, the fact that we were 4.5 hours delayed meant that I ran out of power shortly into our long flight from Washington. to Seattle. And the food was awful - stale nuts, . ;, b:;"
Pros: "It was a pretty smooth flight and it was pretty well organized."
Cons: "The plane was in the Houston hanger most of the day, but it seems they didn't test it. Even after being delayed on the ground due to rain and a mechanical problem with the ramp for three hours, the plane had to turn around and come back to Houston due to another mechanical issue. Finally left 13.5 hours late. I did receive a hotel room, breakfast and 10,000 miles compensation for the hassle, but I would rather have been in Brazil on time."
Pros: "I like that they waited for me before they took off"
Pros: "Pleasant help"
Pros: "Great flight attendants. Smooth ride!"
Cons: "Wasn't to comfy."
Pros: "Pilot was communicative, and seemed as frustrated as us"
Cons: "On the ground crew couldn't handle getting the plane into the gate. We were directed to three different options, leading to at least an hour delay once on the ground and difficult connections."
Cons: "Crew member disrespectful, didn't even get a drink even tough I was ad the middle of the plane."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight attendant took our order but didn't return with our drinks for another 10-15 minutes (I expected more in first class, probably wouldn't upgrade on a shorter flight again). The blankets were not as good as the other flights I had been on."
Cons: "- Horrible food; - Very old airplane. The oldest I ever flew; - The entertainment system was horrible and not worked. We came the whole flight without having access to anything, neither the map of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating to the fact that I was flying with a large service animal. They even brought him his own dinner. They were excellent people."
Cons: "Recently United decided to cancel all of their flights to Denver due to an April snow storm. United was the only company that chose to cancel rather than delay flights. Our flight was cancelled 24 hrs before any snow fell. Their solution was to offer us another flight over 72 hrs out. After spending 6 hrs on the phone with this company (not exaggerating) I feel entitled to say that this company holds zero accountability or concern for their customers. We had to spend an additional $500 to get to our destination last minute through JetBlue."
Pros: "The flight from Houston to Grand Rapids was great on time and smooth. The stewardess were friendly and just eagar to help. I just can't thank you enough United for getting me back home safely."
Cons: "Nothing, everything was a great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which would cause me to miss my connecting flight. The agent on the phone changed my itinerary but sent me to the wrong airport. By the time I got there, there wasn't any other flights that I could take so I ended up having to take a connecting flight the next day. I wanted a hotel voucher but was sent running around to no avail. There was no compensation of any sort and the agents were helpless"
Pros: "I liked the crew and the entertainment, though the touch screen went carzy at the end of the flight and I couldn't make it work adequately."
Cons: "The seats. They are definitely not comfortable for a long flight. They don't have enough cushion, so I had to use the pillow to sit on. The man next to me did the same. Also, the seats do not recline sufficiently, so it's almost impossible to sleep."
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
