Pros: "Going back home to the US"
Cons: "I had 15 hours layover in Amsterdam so I got me a hotel.one hour after I got to the hotel I got a notification from Kayak app asking me to go get my bag from Schiphol. My bag was supposed to be directly shipped to PDX. I had to leave my hotel back to the airport and spend 2 hours trying to find it only to be told that it was going to PDX. I lost my $170 hotel room, over $70 for taxis and ended up spending the night on the floor at Schipol. I do not think I'll ever use Kayak again. The travel guarantee is a joke too."

Toronto airport became a LOT longer pushing my scooter then. Fortunately CANADIANS GAVE ME A HAND TO GET THROUGH CUSTOMS, BAGGAGE CLAIM AND CAR RENTAL. Ok, what to do if something like this happens in America. Maybe to work with security staff cause I was in dire straights without the Canadians to help me. Thank them all. Alton Cason"
Cons: "1- 2 hour delay in Atlanta, 2- Missed my RJA international connection from JFK, 3- My luggage was not delivered to me by Delta in New York. 4- Had to spend one night in a NY hotel, and pay $185 for it, and I was told that Delta doesn't pay for the hotel because the delay was caused by New York Air Traffic Control. 5- After Delta re-booked me on Air France the next day, I made it to Amman, Jordan a day late without my luggage; which arrived another day late."
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Crying kids on flight"
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."

Pros: "Smooth, nice flight. Excellence service, they tried to make up for the late pioltes, allowing to broad befriend they arrived."

Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin"
Cons: "Westjet seating is tight"
Pros: "New plane more leg room Direct flight Orlando Winnipeg"
Cons: "Every time I fly WestJet they seem to need to reset the wifi entertainment wasting 15 minutes of movie watching"
Cons: "Because of the discounted fare I was placed in rear seating at the very back of the plane and to change seats was to cost me $14"
Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "No one would get a wheelchair to get to cart that was on different floor. Driver didn't volunteer to carry bags to cart."
Cons: "Later flight from Toronto delayed multiple times, finally to 2:40 am and then canceled at midnight. Way too late to find an affordable hotel, had to stay at expensive airport hotel instead."
Pros: "From checking in to my arrival I enjoyed the service. The crew even on ground were helpful at the checking in. The light refreshments were okay. I am impressed. I had no on board entertainment so can’t comment on that."

Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Pros: "It was smooth and uneventful."

Pros: "great on board crew, very friendly and getting the impression the company execs under value them. PAY YOUR STAFF BETTER WESTJET."
Cons: "older equipment often means what you’re accustomed to is missing. specifically, not being able to plug in and charge proved problematic on this flight. in-flight entertainment was the old back-of-seat and did not work until the final minutes of the flight."

Pros: "Everything was exceptional"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing about this extremely delayed flight"
Cons: "I was stuck at Pearson International for 5 hours before I was able to get on a different, direct West Jet flight which also ended up being severely delayed."
Pros: "I love this direct flight from Palm Springs to Winnipeg Thank you WestJet"
Cons: "WestJet needs more checkin machines and shorter security lines. I arrived at the airport with a boarding pass and it took over an hour to get to the gate"
Cons: "Cabin was too cold"
Pros: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."
Cons: "the seats are a bit confining."
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Cons: "If it was noted that there would be luggage fees when I was booking I didn't see it."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. There was no delay in any areas."
Pros: "The flight over all was good. Service, and delivery of the expectations were good. Even though the items listed in the dislike are 3 in number, and added to an uncomfortable experience, some of them are identifiable as beyond control, yet others are within the control of system set up or process."
Cons: "small items that I didn't like were : 1) Temperature, and 2) wifi 3) waiting for electrical. 1) Temperature: When boarding the plane the Temperature of the cabin was extremely warm. The pilot advised of the condition, this was not something that could have been fixed and I think they handled it well. I just didn't like the 90+ temperature 2) Wifi: was intermittent, I ensured the Westjet app was the only one running, but the movie I was watching was pausing every 15 minutes to buffer. So it was a constant reminder of dial up.... 3) waiting for electrical: Upon landing and taxi-ing to the ramp, the pilot was advised that there was no electrical to support the plane after he turned off the engines. So good that he waited, thank you pilot, and not so good as it was another unpleasant item on the plane ride."
Pros: "Crew were all very welcoming and polite"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were pretty pricey."
Cons: "Late leaving, hot in plane, sat on tarmac for 40 mins"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight on WestJet."
Cons: "I did not like Kayak, and will not use them again."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful staff"
Cons: "Typical stuff, Cramped space, crappy food"
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"
Pros: "Quickest flight ever."
Pros: "Crew fun"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Pros: "Boarded easily, took off and landed early. What's not to like?"
Cons: "Was offered beverage once, water once. Flight was 4.25 hours long. Would have liked first service to offer snacks besides cookie-- usually ask if you want food for purchase."
Pros: "Short, quick and no hassles"
Cons: "In-flight snacks"
Cons: "Better organization of when a flight gets delayed at another airport due to weather."
Cons: "the wifi is awful"
Pros: "Flying portion was fine."

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly."
Cons: "More room."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Cons: "Leave on time. My round trip had 3 legs to it and 3 of the 4 flights were late!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Issues with times changing for departure"
Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "Everything good. Flight on time, crew was pleasant!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "The cleaniless of the flight can get better"
Pros: "Flying AA. Excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Cons: "Seats very narrow. Not enough legroom."
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was awful. Food pathetic, my monitor didn’t work, smooshed between 2 overweight passengers. Flight crew lacked simple etiquette."
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Cons: "delayed on the plane"
Cons: "Old plane and the movie app kept cutting out"
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Pros: "Timeliness of departure and quality customer service"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and couldn't find streaming entertainment options that were mentioned."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Pros: "Power outlets and WiFi"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Cons: "3 hours late. I could have driven home faster than this and saved $800. Once again, disappointed."
Cons: "American Airlines seemed to be out of sorts on both days of the trip. My connecting flight seat was not assigned until I got to my connecting airport. On the way back, we sat in the plane for over half an hour with no explanation. We then had to de-plane due to engine issues. The attendants at the counter were not that efficient with rescheduling itineraries, as they were often taking breaks, engaging in chit-chat with other workers, and answering personal phone calls during the process. On the connecting flight back, the ground crew "was not ready" for the plane and advised us to "hang out". This made for very little time in finding my connecting flight home (especially because the assigned gate was not even listed in the airport terminal). Not overly dramatic. Just a lot of small things that culminated in a very frustrating travel day. I will likely be avoiding American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."
Pros: "Boarding process and customer service"
Cons: "Food could have been better and seating comfort"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The crew did the best they could but the plane had two equipment malfunctions resulting in a 1.5 hr delay. After the first one resolved, we were inches away from takeoff when the captain came on to tell us something went wrong and we would need to be towed back to the terminal. After waiting for the ground crew to come rescue us, we started pushing backwards but then forwards again. Captain came on and said the problem was fixed. Once we landed at Toronto Pearson from Mexico City, there were no available gates. The movies see election available through streaming on Air Canada Rouge had fewer movies and shows than the tablet you could rent from the airline."
Pros: "Zone boarding"
Cons: "Very hot terminal quite sweaty"
Cons: "i got to the airport 2.5 hours befor my flight to play it safe and waited at the check in for about a hour befor a air canada employe even showed up. vary poor service on the airlines part i will never fly with air canada again."
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "Entertainment unit and comfort were standard 5/5 for both"
Cons: "Boarding a massive 777 is difficult but some how other airlines do it smoother. Not sure how boarding 3 zones at once makes sense, which created a long que. Plus a delayed plane didn’t help the matter Unnecessary comments by one crew member while passengers were putting away their luggage were over heard and provided no value to the situations. Cup of noodles and a 3 tiny pieces of beef plate were provided for dinner which was very disappointing. While a typical egg breakfast and snack were also provided. Hot beverages were generally not served due to turbulence and water service during the 12hr flight was minimal."
Cons: "Why did I have to pay to select my seat? Isn't that the point of purchasing a seat at all? Silly."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "Food was not as good time"
Cons: "No food for an international flight"
Pros: "Crew very friendly. In-flight refreshments & Entertainment provided."
Cons: "Cramp seats."
Pros: "Air Canada has one of the best buy on board menu's of any North American carrier. They even allow you to purchase Business Class meals (subject to availability of course). Flying on the older 767-300ER also has more shoulder and leg room than some of Air Canada's newer configurations for the 787 and 777."
Cons: "Air Canada's boarding process is a bit frustrating. On American Airlines and United Flight attendants make announcements over the PA to (a) step out of the aisle to let people pass, and (b) place larger suitcases in the overhead and smaller bags under the seat. That way they try to ensure there is enough bin space to accommodate everyone. Passengers on Air Canada stuff everything in to the overhead bin and nothing under their seat, leaving little for those boarding after and delaying the flight because flight attendants are looking for bin space. If they were more pro-active, it would speed things up."
Cons: "In the past Air Canada has been great. This past experience makes me never want to fly again. In-flight entertainment is the worst I have ever experienced on an international airline. Entertainment options were very limited, and it didn't work for most of the flight (crew tried resetting the system, to no avail). Crew were inattentive and seemed more focused on hanging out in the back of the airplane socializing with each other. Food was terrible, and I am generally pretty easily pleased when it comes to food. Return flight was delayed twice without any announcements or explanations in the boarding area. Flights were completely full and airplanes were old and uncomfortable. This flight was cheap for a reason. Pay the extra amount and fly another airline."
Pros: "Your customers are nicer than your staff."
Cons: "Firstly I will start with the lack of service we provided when trying to get seats together after checking in online. We rang and were told to try at the airport counter. Then at the airport counter we were told to try at the gate and then at the gate when I went to ask I was told to go get both tickets before they told us that there was no 2 seats together anyway rather than looking first. All whilst explaining this was our honeymoon and we would really like to sit together as husband and wife. Then once we boarded the guy sitting next to me was happy to swap seats with my wife as he had back problems and had asked for an aisle seat but was denied. Finally we are underway and I find that my entertainment touch screen doesn't work so even though it is one i can't select anything to watch. Plus to top it off the seat arm rest was broken. Obviously with a fairly full flight with no 2 seats together their wasn't much that could be done immediately but where is the maintenance and actual physical plane quality? Do your engineers or staff not check things? Overall dispite this being our national carrier I am ashamed to claim that. Many of our overseas visitors for the wedding from Australia and Europe also had similar complaints."
Cons: "Previous flight got delayed and Air Canada did everything possible to prevent me from taking my first available connecting flight. They always prefer that we wait!"
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding on this flight."
Cons: "We were delayed on boarding, they changed the gate number a number of times... it was all very disorganized. Both flights to and from LAX were delayed hours so they had to give us a voucher for 15% off our next flight."
Pros: "The flight crew, the price and the bags arrived."
Cons: "While the flight crew was great, the rest of the employees on the Toronto side were awful. Our plane was delayed from Dublin so most of the plane missed their connecting flight. Once off the plane they only had 2 people working rebooking and 2 working bag issues even though there was plenty employees around. After an incredibly long line, the gate agent was very rude. He barely acknowledged me, wouldn't look at me and just shoved my new ticket at me and said next. I tried to talk to another while waiting an extra 4hrs for my next flight and all she did was shove a business card with numbers and said if I had a problem to call one of those numbers and then rolled her eyes and started talking to her friends again. I saw another couple from my flight being passed around and getting rude treatment as well. Another I talked to said they will never fly Air Canada again. I know it wasn't their fault our flight was late but a little compassion and good customer service goes a long way. I had to spend $15 on dinner that I wouldn't if I had made my flight but they gave another couple from my flight $10 vouchers for food. So inconsistent! I also paid $100 extra on my ticket to sit closer to the front of the plane since I knew I had a short layover (which didn't make a difference) but they just gave the same seat to the girl next to me for the same reason. When I asked for a refund on the seat cost they just blew me off. To sum it up, the flight crew was great and very friendly but all the ground employees were awful and really need to improve on their customer service skills."
Pros: "put us up in decent hotels gave food vouchers the crew didn't do anything to make it horrible Large selection of movies/tv on board comfiest seats out of all the major airlines I've flown"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed bc of mechanical problems, and then eventually cancelled. They rebooked everyone on new flights, but it took an extra stop in Toronto before getting us to Montreal. Once it was rebooked for the morning, it took off a little late. Plus the pretzels they gave us were stale. This was the first of two flights I took this trip that had mechanical issues, so they obviously need to fix their planes better or get new ones, because two Air Canada flights in one day that have mechanical problems leaves me worried that the planes aren't in optimal condition. It took me over 24 hours to get from Tucson, AZ to Montreal, Canada when normal travel takes less than 8 hours including layovers."
Pros: "That at least, the plane eventually did take off and landed safely."
Cons: "Fly time each way from NY to Toronto is approx an hour but they added an extra hour of a delay going and and an hour and a half delay further on the flight back home."
Pros: "Service was kind."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for over an hour before take-off and were therefore late arriving in Toronto. Economy seats were cramped, as expected, and there were children screaming most of the flight. Food was pretty awful."
Pros: "Onboard attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "No apology for lateness, flight boarded late, took off 40 min late, arrived 35 minutes late but we sat at gate waiting for someone to open it ?!, then another 15 min before bags started to unload Ridiculous but indicative of airlines You are not their valued guest or even their customer, you are a problem that needs to be solved and are consequently met with preloaded annoyance and a readiness to dismiss, placate at the best of times but definitely not please, impress, sympathize or satisfy. There is no evidence that it's even in their lexicon- not a part of their recruitment or selection process or training, ever! They're main focus and only positivity is saved for themselves. There may be a long line of concerned and anxious travelers but their priority is getting coffees for the battle ahead! They break their focused indifference only for each other and enthusiastically leave their post to satisfy each other's needs and attention. This has got to change! Why do we put up with such awful service for which we are the paying customer? Why are we, their customers, not valued? This airline makes record profits, provides less, charges for everything and increasingly delivers bad service, sometimes offensively bad! It doesn't cost more to hire a customer centric pleasant person, or incorporate guest experience into training or at the very least be friendly and smile! What if an airline just did that?! They'd differentiate themselves and develop a positive customer centered culture. Don't we deserve that, at the very least?!"
Cons: "At least snacks could have been given..."
Pros: "It was okay, but I feel no one really cares anymore it is just a Job....... on my flight from Canada to Florida on Feb 8 th it was a horrible experience. We were almost 4 hours late due to no crew or pilots. This is my last time flying with Air Canada. Way to much stress for people who have so much stress in there everyday lives. This should be a no stress way to fly. Just sayin"
Cons: "We were very unhappy that the flight was delayed by 35 minutes in Munich causing us to miss our connecting flight by 15 minutes… We only had an hour to get through customs and get to our next flight that should've been accounted for by kayak"
Cons: "Airline oversold seats for my son's flight -- even though I bought my ticket back in April for a flight in November. This is absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "On-time and quick boarding."
Cons: "Not enough leg room - similar to most airlines."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Flight was late taking off"
Pros: "It's on time"
Pros: "Video monitor did not work on ATL YYZ leg"
Pros: "Service on the flight is always good and the transfer in Toronto was seamless."
Cons: "The departure area in Boston is dreadful. no room and no amenities. Straight out of the 60's."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good entertainment (TV, movies, etc). Good, plentiful food and drink."
Pros: "The staff were friendly even though the flight was completely full"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."
Pros: "The Seat"
Cons: "The fact that no food was planned for a flight around noon."
Pros: "I liked how you had movies to watch although they were outdated. The bathrooms were okay."
Cons: "You have to download an entertainment app and if no one tells you to then you are screwed. The food was awful, like baby food for adults. The chairs need to be able to move back more. The flight delays are just wrong."
Cons: "The food was the worst. Did not feel it was even edible. For an 11 hour international flight there were zero amenities. If you wanted to watch a movie, you had to pay $10 per person for an iPad. You could not even use your own & link to their wifi unless you are in their earned points program."
Pros: "People were nice wHen airline made them available to us. But business lounge, special services, and other services were not available in Toronto when we wanted them."
Cons: "Connecting flight was repeatedly delayed. Then finally cancelled because no crew was provided by the airline. Since this was only announced so late - after midnight - hotel rooms were no longer available we had to try to sleep on the floor in the departure hall. Maybe ok for 20 year old travelers. Not for 75 year olds like me who paid business class fare so as to hopefully avoid some of the rigors of travel. I managed to catch up on some sleep the next day in the business lounge while eating for my rescheduled connection. Still it has taken an additional period to physically recover from this experience."
Cons: "Without notice, flight was delayed more than 3 hours."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous to us. Very little turbulence on trip. Flying is very easy today more than Even 5 years ago. I will fly again on Air Canada"
Cons: "Small basic meals"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment and service was great. The Toronto airport waiting area was also good."
Cons: "The luggage drop line was terrible. Only few stations were open and they worked incredibly slow. At the Toronto airport, we were made to fill up customs forms even though we were set for international transfers. None of the questions on the form made any sense since we were not entering Canada but rather leaving for other international destinations. Because of this formality, we had to pass another line which took another 30 minutes. Furthermore, they denied me at the counter because my original check in crew was unable to print my second boarding pass for some technical reason. But, there was noone at the customer service desk to print a boarding pass for me. I had to wait another twenty minutes just for this! All of this happened in a "neverland" section of the airport that didn't even have any restrooms! This could really turn into a nightmare scenario."
Pros: "I liked the choice of movies."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants, Pasquale, was very brusque."
Pros: "Attendant was nice"
Cons: "run down cabin"
Cons: "The aid line lost one bag of mine, should have back today..."
Pros: "Free wifi in airport, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "Limited movies on wifi, limited sandwiches"
Cons: "Air Canada service"
Cons: "While checking in online for the boarding pass I was asked for information like my nationality, residence, passport number, but yet I wasn't informed that I would be needing a transit visa to take a connecting flight from Toronto. I was issued a boarding pass and assigned a seat on the plane. But when I went to board the flight I was not allowed to. I had to go back home with all my luggage and book another flight. No compensation of any kind was provided for the inconvenience and harassment that I had to go through. Not only did I not get any money back I also had to pay for another expensive ticket. I believe it is the airlines responsibility to ensure that the passenger doesn't miss such an important requirement such as the transit visa. They should have check points/pop up messages on their website during the booking of the ticket or during the issuance of the boarding pass that informs or at least directs the costumer to such specific and vital requirements. When I fly by Air France they always direct me to a page that helps me locate the requirements to travel through a country. No such thing was there on Air Canada's website. This was the first time I was flying with Air Canada, but thanks to them I never did. And now I never will."
Pros: "Flight was ok."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. 1.5 hrs was barely enough to get through baggage claim, customs, baggage recheck, customs again, subway ride to Denver United terminal and sprint 30 gates only to make it 1 minute before the gate closed."
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating, wishing more crews were as great and friendly."
Cons: "Non business class passengers were constantly using the business class bathroom, curtains were not drawn."
Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."
Pros: "The professionalism and attitude of staff was excellent. Also in Prem Economy the leg room was good."
Cons: "The snack and drinks were not at the same standard as everything else. I expected to be better in prep economy. There was no entertainment also on board while the internet was not free"
Pros: "I don’t believe I will be a United customer for much longer"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to not being able to get off the plane after landing Flight attendants did not care to help Gate agent was rude Customer service did not want to provide a hotel room because they said the reason I missed my flight is weather relate"
Cons: "Awful. Recieved flight delay info then recieved another email hour before flight moving it back tonoriginal time. Based on your emails my wife and daughter missed their flight. Total disaster. Makin me reconsider wver using kayak again"
Pros: "Bulkhead window seat, very pleasant and informative pilot"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on this flight"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."
Pros: "One of the crew members was excellent, kinder than most. My bag made it on the flight in spite of the delay and very tight connection."
Cons: "No plugs in regular economy class makes it hard to use the United app for entertainment."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "They held the plane in order for me to catch it after my late flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The crew member promised my $60 in checked bags would still follow me, but when I arrived In Vancouver I was Informed they were still in Chicago. My seat did not recline and my reading lamp was broken after paying $80 for the upgraded seat. The flight attendant was a bit grouchy about it. The WiFi was very sporadic and didn’t work for the majority of the trip.. which I wasted 900 miles on. Not impressed this time around."
Pros: "Crew turned around plane and boarded earlier than scheduled. This was an attempt to avoid poor weather on trip to Chicago."
Cons: "Seats should not recline. It makes space horrible. The charge for checked baggage is without an improvement in overhead storage is ridiculous."
Cons: "Missed my flight."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Scheduled to arrive in Honolulu @ 7p on 10/7 but won’t arrive until 10/6 @ 11:26a. My only daughter re-enlisted in the military and I was due to attend the ceremony but because of United Airlines that didn’t happen. So disappointed as she is also. Overall such a horrible experience!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "Entertainment was on personal device. Additional software was needed to watch movie."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing and flight attendant told us there was no way to control the heating the cooling to a comfortable temperature. It will continue to be too hot or too cold."
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."
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."
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."
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: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."
Cons: "The seats are way too cramped"
Pros: "Attendants were cordial and efficient."
Cons: "Because I was seated in the rear near the engines, the announcement from crew were incomprehensible."
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."
Pros: "The newer express jets (4 seat rows) had more leg room for Economy seating! Free wifi and movies."
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"
Pros: "Courteous perdonality"
Cons: "The noisy children"
Pros: "I have food a low score as there basically was none. I was offered a glass of water. I paid $74 for an emergency exit seat, and while it gave extra legroom, the seat hardly reclined at all."
Cons: "Lack of food choices, but perhaps not atypical for coach."
Pros: "We were diverted to Austin due to weather. We had to refuel and we were stuck on the Tarmac for over an hour. While all of this was miserable, the Crew stayed active answering questions. The Captain gave several updates and walked the aisle. They even let people off the plane who were trying to get to Austin. For a bad situation this crew made it so much better!"
Cons: "Weather, but what can you do about that?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"
Pros: "Informative Captain. Made up time in transit."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not exist and a fee was charged to access content online. This does not meet industry standards. During boarding, airline agent told me my one allowable carry-on item had to be checked because of limited space in overhead bins. Upon boarding the plane, there was clearly room for more luggage to be stored overhead. One flight crew member served complimentary beverages by serving the entire can. The other served by pouring only some of the can into a cup. Again, this does not meet industry standards, from the perspective of a reasonably well-traveled flier."
Pros: "I gave it a four because the airline put safety first. Though we had to change plane due to some funny sound made by the engine, the wait was worth it. The crew were helpful and the actual flight was smooth."
Pros: "Even though we were delayed, I still made it to the island within the 9pm hour."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed, causing me to miss my connection"
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"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "This flight was delayed an hour as United had maintenance issues with the plane. United sadly has a bad reputation for deferred maintenance on its planes in order to cut costs. They don't care about customer satisfaction, just the bottom line."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Bad comfort no entertainment and no power outlets"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding on and off the plane was very easy"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortably. We had a nearly 6 hour flight with no tvs which wasn't great either."
Cons: "Online check in was ambiguous and I wasnt sure if I as checked in or not. The gate did not have scanners for the boarding passes on the united mobile app."
Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."
Pros: "Pricing and services were excellent!! Top rated experience for me!"
Cons: "Nothing at all was lacking"
