Didn’t like hour delay for paperwork but pilots informed us we made up much time & would be only 20 min late

Flight attendants were super chill and the flight was comfortable. They provide passengers with lots of bottles of water (two or more even); yay for hydration!

Pros: "The seats were very good. The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We had a connection in Detroit. The flight from Seattle to Detroit arrived about 30 minutes late, and we barely made the connection. Apparently Delta had not told the Detroit-Boston flight to wait a few minutes for us. We did make the connection, but we arrived at the gate with no seat assignment (we had been bumped the day before from our original flight because of a mechanical problem) as the plane was loading. Had we missed the flight, we would have had to spend the night in Detroit and go to Boston the next day. Delta should have told the gate agent that we were coming."
Pros: "Professional crew, no fanfare, standard was excellence."
Cons: "Faster flight time in air..."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was good."
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Cons: "long delay in boarding"
Cons: "I almost lost my flight because of a delay issue, I literally had to run more than 2KM, electrical outlet was not working on business class, a bit disappointing;("
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Messed up my luggage in Atlanta. Gate said baggage was going to domestic. Ended up in international terminal. Added almost an hour of back and forth between terminals."
Pros: "Good experience"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being on time. Trapped in plane for 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Pros: "Issac was amazing!! Best flight attendant I’ve had in years."
Cons: "Nothing. My experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Hands down one of the best flights ever. Great seats, great leg room, amazing crew; I even met some good people on the flight. All around pleasing experience."
Cons: "My only complaint is the food. Some of the other airlines feed us real food, I want to pay for something a bit better. Still a great airline!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Friendly and always with a smile."
Cons: "The headphones distort the sound too much. You miss half the dialogue if you are using the Delta headphones."
Cons: "My 'window' seat had no window! Feeling was claustrophobic"
Pros: "We eventually got to Atlanta."
Cons: "Delta is flying a lot of commuter planes, which are pretty cramped. We usually fly first class, and the seating is essentially the same as what coach used to be. There's nothing "first class" about it. And of course, the flight was hours late."
Cons: "Crazy rough, fast landing but not boring!!!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Delayed departure due to late crew arrival. Not a huge deal."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Pros: "Take off on time, arrived early, pleasant flight attendant"
Cons: "Had to sit on tarmac after arriving early"
Pros: "entertainment and leg room on regular seats"
Cons: "delay, boarding process"
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "Anything from free WiFi, entertainment, leg room, commentary drinks and snacks. Great service!"
Pros: "Great services ce."
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Customs never to hire more agents to work in the early mornings."
Pros: "On time, and pleasant flight. Flight attendants were first class: very competent."
Cons: "I slept all the way, so can’t say whether anything went wrong with the flight."
Cons: "Not much to read"
Pros: "Staff personalities"
Cons: "Waited extra 20 mins after door closed to-complete loading luggage"
Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"
Pros: "We got on the plane and it went to where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "Crew member Lori was exceptional. Great detail to safety and customer service!"
Pros: "I got upgraded to comfort + which was great. quick flight, was even early"
Pros: "Fligth were on time"
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Atlanta was 2:30 min Left at 6:10 arrive at 8:30 roughly Tried twice to get to my connection earlier and get 9:30 instead of 12:09 fligth to Daytona Delta was not flexible to allow me to book saying i did not have 55 min in between fligth which i had than lear n it will cost $75.00 to change the fligth - What? Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"
Pros: "Hey, domestic U.S. flights aren't all bad! I was pleasantly surprised by the kind service and amenities on this Delta flight. There's a plethora of free movies to watch, and the crew continually checked on us to make sure we were hydrated. I think Delta may become my new prefered carrier for domestic flights."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of toilet paper, but staff helped fix this after I talked with them."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 2+ hours, Delta (running the flight for westjet) sent 1 email about the flight being delayed to 4:45 which was inconsistent with the gate signage and agent who said 3:45, flight ended up leaving at 5:45PM. No reasons were provided beyond the incoming flight from LGA hadn't come in. Why hadn't it come in? When could we expect to leave YUL? No answers."
Pros: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"
Cons: "Seats are very small."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Pros: "The quickness of the flight. We left on time and made if a few many prior than scheduled."
Cons: "Felt sort of cramped. My neighbor in the windo seat got up four times so I had to get up."
Cons: "No TVs for int'l flight, disorganized and chaotic boarding process, limited snack options"

Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.

Better food please

We were delayed for 4 hours and no one was giving any explanation why until I finally called. AA wasn’t updating the time on the board. The handling of boarding people was messy. Everyone coming in and taking forever to load their carry on. Just overall bad experience

Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Cons: "I got assigned seats but when we got our boarding passes we were seated several rows apart, not in the seats I got when tickets were purchased months earlier. So we got reassigned to near back of plane, not at window seats, near several families with small loud children!! Not pleasant!"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "2.5 hours late taking off."
Cons: "5 hour delay caused us to miss connecting flights so got stranded in Los Angeles."
Pros: "Nice crew. Very smooth flight."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Seating was comfy with techy was to entertain yourself."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to the plane not being ready. Baggage handling absolutely destroyed my wife’s new luggage. Her suitcase came with a cover to help keep it clean. The cover was ripped in several locations and the whole side of her suitcase was blown out. We will have to purchase new luggage."
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Pros: "Seat upgrade."
Pros: "No"
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Cons: "A delay in take off"
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Pretty standard flight"
Cons: "Inconvenient timing and overcrowded with obnoxious children sitting on laps. No attempts made to change their behavior by crew or parents."
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move."
Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Pros: "When the plane finally arrived everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed at least 5x. We started getting delays around 1pm but our flight wasn’t scheduled to leave until 7pm. We were on a connecting flight so it was no chance of making the second leg of our flight. I used an AA discount to get a room in Charlotte but we didn’t get to the airport until almost 2am so I had called to cancel that hour before making it to Charlotte but was told I may still be charged for the room even tho at this point it was outta my control. It would be great if the airline took care of giving you shelter when you are stuck in limbo with no reason behind while you are stuck. American is a good airline but they seriously dropped the ball this trip."
Pros: "I like everything ."
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Flexibility and helpfulness of staff."
Cons: "I no longer fit in the seats because they keep shrinking the pitch"
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "Crew and other personnel"
Cons: "I was not able to select a seat 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "change to larger aircraft meant more room."
Cons: "change to larger aircraft caused significant delay without option to disembark while maintenance was being done. Also time between connections was too tight."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful - friendly and accommodating. Food excellent - very fresh. Cannot say enough kind things about the crew!!"
Cons: "Everything was excellent on this flight."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"
Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."
Cons: "Too long of a layover when flying from san diego through phoenix to detroit. Need to look for improvement in scheduling to make this a trip enjoyable."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"
Cons: "After arriving at the airport more than 2 hours early and at the gate 30 min prior to departure, American Airlines never called last boarding call, not our names. We sat at the gate, not knowing they had boarded, and tje plane departed unbeknownst to us. Had to stand in the rebooking line for 1.5 hours before speaking to a rep who told us we couldn't rebook our international flight. Had to request a supervisor, who thankfully after an additional hour was able ro rebook us."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "good attention"
Pros: "* on time * courteous staff"
Cons: "Flight attendants barely made eye contact and certainly didn't make us feel welcome in business class."
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."

Great flight, arrived early.....perfect

Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"
Pros: "A staff of 2 attendants on a crowded A 321 is minimal, not optimal"
Cons: "Food could be improved!"
Pros: "It arrived on time."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold. People we wearing their jackets and when I mentioned it to the cabin crew member she said a few other people would have to make a similar comment before she could request turning the temperature up. There was also a glitch in the system so that the reading lights for each seat could only be operated by the seat directly in front. The food was very uninspiring and poorly presented. The tea and coffee were awful!!!!!! The choice of movies,etc was very limited. Thank goodness it was a night flight and not too long!"
Cons: "Connections to US destinations now require your checked in baggage to be processed before you can proceed to your connecting flights. The real problem is that this is no sign or communications describing this. Everyone is simply stopped in the corridor and told that they cannot proceed farther until their name comes up green on a monitor. Unfortunately the monitor switches displays so frequently that it is almost impossible to read. In addition to that it seems names do not always appear on the monitor unless you get your boarding pass scanned a the desk (this is not communicated to you unless you ask why your name is not on the monitor at all). People late for connecting flights (because of inbound flight delays) are required to wait without explanation sometimes needlessly if they don't have a checked bag. A nightmare if you're trying to make your connection. In addition once you've cleared that hurdle you need to go through security again (something we were unprepared for since we were already in the secure area. You then proceed to customs and then your connecting flight (if you haven't already missed it by then). Allow lots of time to get to your connecting flight, and ask to get you boarding pass scanned at that mysterious "checked bag" stop in the corridor."
Pros: "Once on the flight, everything went well."
Cons: "Real nightmare as I had booked YUL-LYS-BRU with Brussels Airlines (SN). YUL-LYS was operated with Air Canada. Came within 4 minutes of missing flight despite being at airport 3 hrs early. SN had not released ticket to Air Canada so they could not check me in. Had to call SN customer service after AC could not check me in, then wait and wait as they had to try to correct the mistake 3x before AC counter could issue boarding passes. Terrible experience going through this with 2 small kids waiting. It’s as if the two airlines’ systems don’t communicate but passenger is responsible for resolving."
Pros: "The crew inside the plane was friendly pretty much the only thing good about the travelling"
Cons: "The seats were not confortable and old and no entertainment at all ! The food was horrible and the customer service from air Canada at Montreal airport was rude and unprofessional 3 hours delay without even an apology or an explanation! I went to see a person from a air canada at a desk at the boarding gates and he wouldn't even have the courtesy to give me 1 minute of his time to explain why the plane is late his awnser was wait for the announcement and you will see his attitude was very apathetic. Overall I was very disappointed"
Pros: "Our daughter's first time traveling alone. She slept most of the time and she said it was fine and comfortable enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and then once up in the air, passengers were told the food cart didn't make it the 6 hour flight so no food or snacks for the entire flight from Montreal to San Francisco."
Pros: "I liked that they didn't make a fuss when boarding that I wasn't in the section but needed to board earlier due to a knee injury."
Cons: "That they didn't really stop long enough for me to ask for a snack. They asked the other side but as I was on the window seat, I couldn't seem to get their attention."
Pros: "How can anything be good if you are so cramped in the seat for 3 hours!!! Terrible. I almost fell trying to get out of my seat-trying to get to the bathroom! No movies unless you pay 10.00 for an I Pad!! Nothing about it was good! Pay for seats! Pay for bags! Pay for food!! Wow what a scam! No body was happy. I wont fly AC if its Rouge."
Cons: "How can anything be good if you are so cramped in the seat for 3 hours!!! Terrible. I almost fell trying to get out of my seat-trying to get to the bathroom!

Pros: "Every thing expert the food"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff. Took into consideration who was travelling together and left a positive impression! Plane boarded early and was loaded and ready to roll AHEAD of scheduled take off time."
Cons: "Was put on a Turkish airlines flight - landed in India 12 hours AFTER scheduled landing. My luggage did not reach India. After numerous calls got only 1 out of 2 of my bags ; 2nd bag still missing 1 week after landing in India WOW"
Pros: "the crew was nice and helpul with my worry about loosing the flight to tel aviv because the flight to toronto was late due to snow in toronto."
Cons: "while on my way to the airport i got a message that my flight was cancelled. luckily i had a friend who took care of putting me on another flight to toronto. weather created changes but just sending a message your flight is cancelled is not the right way to deal with things. when finally arriving to toronot i had to rush to my flight to tel aviv, it was insane, just to realize that also this flight was postponed due to the weather. air canada should be more involved in helping travelers to deal with their connections."
Cons: "Although we boarded on time, there was a wait of over 1.5h in the plane. First time in my life i was beyond uncomfortable. What i couldn't understand was why we had to be in the plane for the refueling. It makes more sense to wait in the airport at the gate rather in a tight confined place. I'm overall pissed at the situation. Not to mention my seat was defective and although the seat was up, it would push back the moment you put weight. The flight attendant kept on asking me to place my seat in the upright position (which wasn't possible). To get her off my back, i held my back up with my own weight. I'm disappointed with aircanada."
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."
Pros: "Service was excellent - staff was very attentive, pleasant and helpful and seemed like they truly enjoyed their job. We will definitely use them again when flying from Montreal"
Pros: "The gate agents were polite and the boarding was relatively smooth. Food was fine and flight attendants were Excellent!!!"
Cons: "First point of contact was incredibly rude. First she told me she couldn't find my reservation. Once she did, she gave me a lecture about my married name. Next she refused to let me take my carry on bag saying it was too large even though it fit on all flights to Montreal. Once I proved it would fit with the luggage sizer she had moved on to another customer and ignored me for 10 minutes while I stood there even though my boarding passes were printed. When I got to the flight, I found it could have been gate checked but there was no need as the flight was NOT FULL and my bag fit with no problem at all in the overhead bins. In 35 years of flying this was the worst experience I've ever had."
Pros: "Ease of boarding - no long queues. Offer to put hand luggage in the hold with no charge."
Cons: "Extreme delays on my return flight which made me miss my connection and get rebooked on another flight for the next day. We were delayed on departure, then on the tarmac, then in the air, and finally when getting off the plane. I am glad that I was rebooked and was given a hotel to stay at, but I did not like the way I was treated by Air Canada staff at customs. I passed through customs only to be sent back into Canada after having crossed through security because the staff decided to close. We were told by other staff members that it was up to them to decide when they were done and to talk them. I ran through the whole airport with about 7 other people to make it. Why make us cross through security only to send us back? There was no one there to guide us on what to do. I had to go through the whole thing again the following day only to have my face cream taken away (it is technically cream, not a liquid) and then be detained. None of this happened AT ALL the day before. I'd give more details but it was a complete mess."
Cons: "This flight was two and a half hours late. We lost an hour and 45 minutes due to a mechanical problem with our airplane, then lost another 45 minutes due to a storm in Toronto. Air Canada blamed the weather for our late arrival, my missed connection and claimed no responsabilility for the fact that my trip ended up taking more than 24 hours when it was supposed to take about 9 hours. Also, there was the matter of the lost luggage which was a carry on that I accepted to have checked as the Air Canada staff seemed desperate to check our carry ons on a full flight to Toronto from Montreal. I ended up spending the night in the Vancouver airport without access to my luggage."
Pros: "Movies for free, although the seat next to mine didn't work. Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Some of it was air canada, some of it was weather and some of it was the montreal airport. scheduled for 6:00 rescheduled 7:00 rescheduled 8:00 boarded 8:30 took off 10:00 1. air caanda - boarded the plane, then came on with announcement that we would be sitting on tarmac for an 1.5 hours. We were delayed for hour and half already, why load us and make us sit in a warm aircraft. Air Canada offered us 10.00 vouchers for dinner... problem was they did it so late nothing was open. It should have been done earlier. 2. weather - caused the initial problem in NYC, no fault of air canada. 3. Montreal airport - Our gates were switched 3 times during the delays. Which happens, however the gate changes started at one end of the airport, moved to the other end of the airport and back to the original end."
Pros: "Boarding was good, but pretty bad flights overall. One of the worst I ever had in my life! The plane seats we had had so little cushion that is was painful to sit. My husband was avoiding touching the back by leaning on his arms and he is great shape, don't think elderly and in pain by himself...Entertainment simply non-existent and food as well... The crew were borderline okay. Plus the plane drove for about 20 minutes at Montreal and about 20 in Chicago before we left and after we landed...Let's say I saw parts of O'Hare in Chicago, I didn't even know existed!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was turned around after we had gotten to Toronto. They claimed that they had shut down the airport due to bad weather. They took us back to Montreal where we sat in on the tarmac for two hours. They said that there was a second storm Coming through Toronto and that the airport was shutdown again. They then canceled our flight. After standing in line for three hours at customer service they told me they couldn't get me on another flight until tomorrow night and ariving at my destination two days later. The coustomer service rep then told me to just go ahead and call the customer service number because she couldn't help me. They said they wouldn't pay for any accommodations because it was weather related. The issue with their argument is that only one other flight was canceled into Toronto. Air Canada actually had several more flights that day that that landed in Toronto after they told us the airport was closed. The customer service was embarrassing. They had us wait for over three hours to be helped and there were four desk which at most times they only had two people working. Many times there was only one person. The entire thing was pathetic."
Pros: "Air crew was nice. Pilot nice too."
Cons: "Old plane. Smaller seat size than comparable airlines. Terrible food: a slice of oily cske, served in a plastic sleeve, must be the new low for an international breakfast...no individual tvs on the sets....hello, step into the 21st century.... And the selection available via your iPad or laptop and their wifi was small, and old...we had paid to upgrade our economy tickets to the next level, and we expected more...the size of the upgraded seats was not great and there wa no foot rest to put your feet on, which is a significant help to someone who flies so many hours and can assist with circulation...."
Cons: "Tough to have a long-haul flight without functioning seat-back entertainment. Mine never worked. Asked three times about it - three times the system was "rebooted" - to no avail. I told each subsequent flight attendant that it had already been reset - they just "tried" it again. Very frustrating over the course of several hours. No one ever checked to see whether their re-set actually worked. Also, not sure why the window seats now have an arm rest on the window side of the seat - seriously interferes with passenger comfort when trying to sleep."
Cons: "One of my three flights was unnecessarily delayed by two hours, enough that I missed my last connection and had to stay overnight in Vancouver. There were no technical complications or weather complications. It was simply because something had been misscheduled and the flight crew needed a longer rest time between flights. This is completely avoidable, and the attendent who checked me in even said so. While the hotel and shuttle were paid for, Air Canada only gave me a $7 breakfast voucher, which was only redeemable at the hotel's measly breakfast counter rather than anywhere in the airport. For the unnecessary delays I had to deal with, i should had received more credit. This was an utterly disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "The snack selection is excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Seatroom"
Cons: "The 6 1/2 hour flight from Montréal CANADA to San Francisco, CA USA, is considered a "shared border flight," which means 1) you pay $25 for your first checked bag, $35 for the next, and $100 for subsequent bags. The food is horrible and the type you'd expect on a puddle jumper from NY to Boston. Clearly Air Canada executives are aware that Canada and the US are separate countries. This is just an attempt to gouge the consumer. Unfortunately Air Canada is the only Airline I can fly out of Montreal so I'm stuck with them. : ("
Pros: "friendly pilot"
Cons: "Delayed 25 minutes, and threatened to fly without 15 passengers due to strong headwinds and need to reduce weight. Never heard that one before."
Pros: "The plane was nice and spacious. A CA agent stationed by customs helped about five of us get to the front of the line, so we'd make our next flight."
Cons: "1. After playing 20 questions at the check-in kiosk, it was unable to print our documents. 2. So we played 20 questions again and the second machine failed to check us in. 3. The flight was delayed about an hour (due to weather, not your fault), so our connection was tight. We alerted the agent at the gate (along with several others). She didn't help at all. She just told us to go to the gate. Well, we had to go through customs, so that wasn't helpful. What we were asking is if she could alert the gate agents at the next flight that we were running as fast as we could. 4. So five of us get to the next gate as they're paging us that the doors are closing. 5. Our bags didn't make the flight, which wasn't unexpected, but it was worrisome when the agent at our final destination told us she couldn't tell where they were."
Cons: "One man wanted me to check an empty carry on bag I travel for 10 years with this high quality foldable carry on bag, it is a tight in their test cradle because of the wheels but it does fit. Even a passanger offer me is support telling the agent he was not reasonable after getting the bag in and out 4 times he still wanted me to check the bag in ? After 10 min arguments he said ok put it on the floor ! I could of put 2 of my foldable bag on the top storage if I had 2.... it was a connecting from same airline a much smaller plane which accepeted the bag . Very unpleasant ! Some people like to feel in power."
Cons: "had to pa for poor selection (the cheese "platter" ran out quickly :( )"
Cons: "Air Canada failed to transfer my bag from flight 1 to connecting flight 2. This not only happened to me but to other people traveling on the same connecting flight as well. My bag was delivered later then the promised time, it was also returned damaged. It is now almost one week since I have taken my flight and I am unable to process a claim because they have not updated my file via their Bag Tracer program. It is clear that they still have a lot of work to do to be considered a real commercial air line company"
Cons: "Boarding was slow and chaotic because of the number of passengers bringing oversize carry-on bags, presumably to try to avoid the checked-bag fee. The overhead bins filled up early, and passengers squabbled over the available space and objected when flight attendants told them they would have to gate-check their bags. The aisle was congested and blocked for long periods of time as people tried to fit their bags into the bin, and the plane left the gate more than 15 minutes late because of the slow boarding. There were about 100 people on the flight, but only about 20 at baggage claim (including at least two family groups), another indication that the checked-bag fee caused passengers to bring oversize carry-on bags. The overall rating for this flight would be significantly higher if it weren't for the boarding process."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stood out in Montreal or the flight to Boston, as better than average...meh"
Cons: "Our Swiss crew told us over the loudspeaker several times that "even if connecting we still need to get our luggage" which turned out to be false as our luggage was transferred to the Boston bound plane automatically... We were ushered out as a group to a connection security check which required electronic kiosks to be used for scanning our passports photos and fingerprints... They fraught with malfunctions then after waiting in line for s while we did the whole check all over again with s human security agent in s booth... There were only 2 security agents in the booths as well but there really needed to be several more to keep the line moving quicker... After security we walk directly out to departures but no mention of baggage claim, which was fine had we not been misinformed by Swiss initially... We ended up inquiring several times with SirCsnsda staff until it was clear Swiss had misinformed us."
Cons: "The port for the earphones didn't work 100% You had to jiggle it to get it to work"
Pros: "Had a great conversation wih a guy from Switzerland an it really helped to pass the time."
Cons: "I didn't like that they either started boarding too early or we waited a long time to get off the runway as it seemed we were on the plane a long time before we actually left. Also we just received our snack and our drink and as soon as we received them, a stewardess told us to all put our tables up and I do believe that it was because we were descending to land. It seemed like forever before we received our snack and then we're told we couldn't use our tables. I think they should have started the snacks earlier as it was quite a big plane and it probably would take quite a long time to serve everyone and the worst part of it all was that I had asked for a can of pop, so I had to hold my can of pop, my glass pop and try to get my snack out of the package which was not easy at all."
Pros: "They didnt loose my luggage this time."
Cons: "do your self a favor and find a different airline. When i got home and talked to others about my travels the said " what did you expect, i wont fly air canada" I wish i would have know before i booked my flight."
Cons: "on march 13/ 2016 booked my tickets on kayak.com so end up getting it with vayama.on july 28 missed my flight for a family raison called vayama and explained the situation they said they will help me just they need to confirm with the airlines (air canada) and they will give me new tickets.no body called me back ,called air canada said: we have ticket but you need to get it from vayama.called vayama again he said sorry about that i will let everyone know and he promise me that i will get help a.s.a.p.did't hear from them left with my wife and two kids in morocco for a week end up buying new tickets from laufthansa"
Cons: "On the way back from Quebec City to Montreal we were asked to check our carry-ons as luggage, because "there is no room' on the plane. It was an empty flight. ALL overhead compartments were empty. Both flights - Quebec to Montreal and Montreal San Francisco were late. As the result, we have to spend 1.5 hours in the baggage claim area, because "there are no baggage agents in SFO available". THAT WAS THE WHOLE REASON WE ONLY HAD CARRY-ONS! By far, one of the worst flight experience in the last 10 year."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After waiting 30 minutes after our boarding time, I got an email on my phone saying the gate had changed. No one at the current gate knew anything about it and I went to ask but no one could be found. I asked a man sitting behind the gate, who happened to be the pilot, and he also knew nothing about it. Needless to say, the gate changed and absolutely nobody was told about it. 2 hours later, our flight finally took off, and I was thanked by the pilot for getting us to the right gate... At least he provided a little humor to the situation! Plane also wasn't cleaned, pretzels and trash all over the floor."
Pros: "the crew on that flight was very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "I missed my connection in Montreal because the flight was 2 hours late to get in and Air Canada staff in Lyon had told me I did not need to get my luggage in Montreal but only in Toronto to go through US custom ... which was not true. The airport staff in Montreal was absolutely unhelpful and sent me in 10 different directions. I was finally rebooked for a later flight, and the person there was finally very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Pros: "I had a wonderful experience with the crew on broad. The pilot was amazing. The cabin Attendent in first class was very lovely and sweet. She was the reason for my nice experience since I had a horrible time with the gate staff."
Cons: "I had a horrible time with the gate staff. They made me check my bag at the gate even though it fits in the overhead bin. I did three flight with air canada prior to this flight with the same carryon. I didn't appreciate the ladies attitude. She said I don't care who or what class you fly so took my roller and tagged it. Then she let the guy next to me get on with his bigger roller only because he was first class. I had to upgrade myself to first class to keep my roller on me. I had things that I couldn't part from my carry on. Cost me $500 US dollar and then she said to me. What ever thrills you. Wow. I am star alliance gold with two airlines and I have never ever been treated this way ever. I will never take air canada ever again. The 1800 customer service isn't any better."
Cons: "The fact that because I was late for my flight, my reservation was cancelled. I was not given the opportunity to change my flight at all, I just lost out on the return portion of my travel. I would have been willing to pay a fee to change my return, but not given the opportunity. Had I booked directly with the airline, they would have had no problem making a change. Buyer beware!!! If you don't book directly with an airline, you may suffer the same fate as me! This was an almost $1,300 dollar learning experience. Do not use third party online booking agents! You do not have the same protections as dealing with the airlines directly."
Cons: "We didn't like having to pay for carry on luggage. When we left SFO and flew to Montreal, if your bag was 21 inches, not 20 they checked it for free. Traveling back to SFO the counter person made us pay to check a bag, even though we knew if we went to the gate, they would take it. This was not good or consistent. We will not fly on Air Canada"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight ended."
Cons: "The "ping" concert. Since some designer genius (thanks, Boeing!) put all the controls in the armrest, exactly where any normal human being will rest his/her elbows, the controls keep activating every time you lay your elbow in the armrest. That means, your games will cancel and restart a thousand times, your volume will keep shifting from deafening to mute, and the button calling for help from the crew keeps going "ping" all over the plane. The crew ignored the calls, surely since they know what goes on with the plane, but I wonder what would happen if somebody really needed help. In addition to that, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable, narrower than ever and hard as brick. Every time I board a new plane I wonder what can they do to make it even worse, and plane designers never cease to amaze me with new medieval tortures."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "The flight was quite late. I was traveling alone with 3 kids and asked the attendant if he could help us get off early and/or find out at which gate our connecting flight was located. His response, "most people on here have connecting flights." We were unable to board the next flight despite running to get there with time to board, as "our suitcases would not make it." I feel the staff made no effort. At least 12 others also missed this connection and the very small plane could easily have been delayed to load the suitcases."
Cons: "Free snacks."
Pros: "Absolutly, they let me switch seat"
Cons: "No leg room,"
Cons: "The staff did not want to accept my ticket purchased through kayak, told me that should have bought a ticket directly through air transat, and they told me to buy a new ticket elsewhere if I wanted to travel on that day. So I had to buy a same day ticket with air canada for an additional $900 CAD, and my ticket bought through kayak was useless, making me waste the entire cost of the ticket purchased through kayak."
Pros: "Crew amazing. Passengers great"
Cons: "Seats are way too small. Aisles way too tight. Recent acquisition by air Canada must improve passenger comfort."
Pros: "IFE, aircraft"
Cons: "Comfort, food options"
Pros: "Air Transat provide excellent service with affordable prices. I have arrived late to check-in desk due to unexpected traffic but Air Transat team was very supportive, even helped us to cross the customs in no-time until the gate of the plane without interrupting the flight time. Highly Recommended."
Pros: "L’équipage très serviable à l’ecoute et souriant"
Cons: "Pas d’ecran dans les appuie tête devant pour l’entertainment. Le siege n’a aucun ajustement pour la tête Et aucune prise usb pour charger nos appareils"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Seats were tiny"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Old plane... not much room for legs and seating are uncomfortable! No personal entertainment système! Poor flight"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Checking site was down Boarding was delayed because of crew forgot to tag Cary-on luggage for passengers, we had to all go off the plane to identify our luggage’s No space on the airplane, didn’t get to sit beside my wife. Would not recommend Pay the extra to go with a reputable airline."
Pros: "Nice flying, nice crew, nice jet"
Cons: "Luggage took an hour to get out... unacceptable"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane. All on time . Good experience."
Pros: "It’s hard to write a review when flight was supposed to leave at 6:30 and didn’t until midnight, but due to weather. It was frustrating for all but staff and pilot kept us informed at all times so that was appreciated. There wasn’t much to do but to wait out the weather."
Cons: "For the weather to be better and to have left on time - but obviously that is out of everyone’s control."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "It took almost an hour from landing for our luggage to make it to the belt. For a domestic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "It left fairly promptly. Service was efficient. The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "flight was delayed in both directions; very few announcements; the crew were ok, but there was not much service in the hour we waited foe the plane to take off and during the flight"
Pros: "Great price! For the price, we didn't expect much, just travel and get there safe - NO FRILLS. We paid a little extra for legroom and are happy this was not an inflated price. Paying in advance for our bag and getting a small discount was also appreciated. "Get what you pay for" without feeling "nickled and dimed" is what we consider economical and fare treatment."
Cons: "Again "you get what you pay for" is considered. However if I was to be critical, the choice of movies was a little stressful and one sided. (Star Wars and The Avengers). I brought my own entertainment but I felt bad for the Older generation who may have preferred something a little more relaxing and less CGI explosions. Also the interior decor and hardware of the plane was seriously aged and worn, which could use for an upgrade soon."
Pros: "Modern aircraft. Leg room was ok. It was a busy flight."
Cons: "Boarding was late but made it in time. Need better seat selections."
Pros: "Boarding started from the back to the front. Which, I always thought it's the correct way to embark and it was the first time I saw it done that way."
Cons: "When the boarding was finallly finalized the airplane was ready to take off on the track for about an hour and a half and no one was told why we weren't taking off. I decided to ask and the flight attendant said that "it took long to embark all the luggage and that it won't be very long". To which, I didn't understand what one thing had to do with the other since that shouldn't be the cause to why we are paralized on the track but I just left it like that. Instantly after she walks to the back, they announce that they there was a problem with the A/C and that we had to wait to have a spot near a gate sothat we could go back and and a mecanic could come and fix it. After it took for ever... they finally fixed it but now we had to wait for gas. At this point, whitin those three hours, only one glass of water was offered to us and no appology. Thankfully, we finally took off, 3 three hours and a half behind schedule. They started to serve food and drinks to first class people and were completely taken care of but no attention to all the other passengers. At this point it's been 5 hours that we are on this plane and it seems that the service was extremly slow to get us hydraded or been offered anything to eat. My flight was 4hours away from Montreal to Calgary initiallyT And this whole event made it an 8hour travel with, the fact being completely ignored by the crew and nothing being offered for customer satisfaction. The pilot only said a small "we apologize" after we had already landed. It isn't the first time that I fly with this company and I find that it used to be one of the top companies in Quebec but the service and the quality have deteriorated overtime. There is always something negative that happens when I fly with them and I've noticed that the customer service isn't really present. It's okay but since it doesn't seem to matter to them, I will no longer fly with this company. (P.S.: this whole event caused me to miss the last bus to my final destination and have to wait at the airport until the next day at 9:30am to take the first bus in the morning... luckily I only work in the afternoon.)"
Pros: "Convenient time ,food was ok and no delay."
Cons: "No plug ,no inflight entertainment ,uncomfortable sits and crew was not overly friendly"
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Delayed flight, no snacks, difficulty at baggage claim to get baby car seats. And very frustrating that they didn’t give us our stroller at the gate. We had to carry our two kids through immigration and the baggage claim until after all the bags came off, then our stroller and car seats came last!"
Pros: "Great video system."
Cons: "Seats and legroom are insufficient."
Pros: "On time,I could charge my mobile"
Cons: "The curser of the smart screen was hard to use"
Pros: "Good flight, no incidents. Liked the food"
Cons: "Audio was not working, no personal tv screens"
Pros: "Loved the see and simplicity of booking with kayak. One of my fastest flight booking with minimal headaches"
Cons: "Ability to check in with the airline through the kayak app. At least through a link to the airlines website with the information required prefilled"
Pros: "The best parts - the crew and the entertainment. The stewards we engaging, courteous, and professional. They also provided some very good information on what to do once in the Cancun terminal. The in-flight entertainment system had an excellent selection."
Cons: "The low score for food is a result from there not being any on the flight. It was only 4 hours in duration, and we brought our own snacks. The coffee was excellent!"
Pros: "Nothing I don't take Air Transat anymore and not recommend to anymone"
Cons: "Transat taking advantage of passengers by charging fees for luggage on return flight I was charged $35US for 2nd luggage on return flight (no charge for same luggage on departure flight). Poor customer relations of staff. Aisle seating was requested and was very uncomfortable. During check-in, Transat staff was not helpful in handling luggage. Poor service and very bad customer service from staff."
Pros: "Possibly of direct flight. Had to book earlier flights due to deteriorating health of brother who fied tbis week thus had to pay for 2 flight"
Cons: "Having pushed to just fly for reservations and no warning that this company doesn’t allow for change if plan as brothers health took for the worst andhad to fly earlyier to see him before he died. I will never again use just fly for any bookings and have told my family members and friends about this company poor customer service. Buyer beware if you use just fly. Air transat said they would havé refunded us but it was up to just fly that we had to go through. Never again just fly."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "You can only purchase meals and snacks. There should be, at the very least, a snack provided with this flight."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I am still at the airport in Montreal looking for a flight to leave Montreal. I came 3 hours before the flight, I tried the machine I couldn't find my reservation. I thought the problem was with the machine, went to the agent same problem. they gave me that number +18553331101 to chek with the air transat customer care, they couldn't find the reservation either, I tried then to call the number provided on the reservation confirmation +18774964815, no answer, even the flight was delayed for almost 30 minutes, I still couldn't get on board. Now I'm still at the airport looking for a flight to leave. my question now is after all of that are you guys still going to charge my card that $226.43?"
Pros: "Great service nice crew We received a C$20.00 vouchers to grab lunch at YUL airport Delays happen Air Transat handled the situation efficiently"
Cons: "4 hours delays because of mechanical problem but from fed and n reasonable time"
Pros: "There are no leg room at all for tall people."
Cons: "Too small"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the delay 9 hours"
Cons: "Antiquated electronics use procedures"
Pros: "I was crammed into the middle seat between two obese men. I could hardly move my legs or arms. They offered bistro but when I asked for a bistro item they said they had no more."
Pros: "Lot of room, friendly staff."
Cons: "Food was ok from Prague to Montreal. However, from Montreal to Prague we received a hot sandwich ??? and a slice of vanilla cake for breakfast? On top of that they were promoting some chef Vezina at an extra charge of 25$ thinking that people would buy a standard meal at a surcharge rate? This is really bad publicity for airtransat, never had I witnessed such poor food on an 8 hour flight. Waving the standard meal at a surcharge rate is truly uncool. Offering the hot bun as a standard meal to fulfil the long flight hot meal standard is a low blow, that's all I can say."
Cons: "Late boarding, no assigned seating, virtually no options for buying food on board (and the small sandwich that was given for free was not good), no entertainment system, and no outlets for charging electronics."
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Helpful flight attendants and comfortable enough seats for the price."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but the woman in front of me reclined her seat 100% and was in my lap the entire flight: made for leg cramping and discomfort for the 8+ hours in the air. The sand which I received also had soggy bread after warming.. I got the vegetarian and was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "Seats were alright"
Cons: "Lost luggage and no communication since we landed"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Our flight from Barcelona was late and we had to rush across the airport to get the connection to Toronto. By the time we landed it was almost time for the Toronto flight to depart. No information was given to the passengers when we landed informing them that the Toronto flight was waiting for us. No information was given by the ground staff either, just told to drop your checked bag off and get to the gate and hope the flight was still there. Would have been a lot less stressful if someone had said "don't worry, the Toronto flight is waiting for you""
Pros: "The crew, the plane, and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Not anyone's fault but the plane was filled with crying babies...the overnight flight was difficult."
Pros: "They gave us water when we had to wait an hour before take off. It was not their fault we were delayed. They did wait for the 30 of us who were delayed from Lyon and did not take off without us."
Cons: "They did not answer my call (s) for water to take a pill. They never offered anyone earphones. There were no services at all on this flight as the seat belt sign was on the whole time."
Pros: "For a traveller since I was a kid, this is one of my worst experiences"
Cons: "The line for the registration was sooo long! The staff never smiles, if you ask a question they loook at you as you were crazy, they are just hurrying up so they can go sit and chat together The bathroom were disgusting, my bladder almost popped The place is app small, i only weight 105lbs and I was in discomfort The tv, reminds me of the 1990's when you have one big tv for everybody or TV's in the middle of the row"
Cons: "No individual screens for entertainment"
Pros: "Quick baggage drop at counter , very nice crew ..."
Cons: "Seat configuration 3 3 3, no power outlets for charging your devices..."
Pros: "On time, inexpensive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable space, narrow seats and corridor, poor food"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good entertainment selection available and drink provided on short flight."
Cons: "Delay and disorganization at airport left passengers frustrated with at least 3 changes to gate prior to departure. Added to this was the incorrect announcement on P.A. System at 6:55pm a change of gate to leave at original time (7pm), only to have a stampede of passengers arrive at newly assigned gate to have no airline representative there and soon a new/revised departure time of 21:05 instead. Hopefully, those clients with international connections were able to make it, but I suspect that several had their plans changed with this > 2 hour delay."
Pros: "It was well heated because often airplanes are too cold, I get sick and also notice that some passenger start coughing, and also me after some hours. The personal was friendly and I knowticed that they tried to please everybody. Unfortunately there was a baby who cried most of the time and her mother simply was not able to calm her. I also travelled with two babies and small children every year long distances but mine always fell asleep and never cried. I know this is beyond your control"
Cons: "The food was not too good, I think I will order vegetarian the next time."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "No food & 1 hr delay"

Great overall experience, thank you!

Pros: "Crew in flight was nice and professional Sit in 1st class was comfortable"
Cons: "For this flight everything was good"
Cons: "Late crew caused delays"
Pros: "Timeliness, professional staff and crew"
Cons: "Less cramped airplane: there is nothing wrong with the plane itself but every time I have travelled this route the plane has been completely full (this time it was even oversold) so a bigger plane would help"
Pros: "The flight was easy and quick. These small planes are actually pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Waiting for a gate in Chicago is never fun. Most people on the plane seemed to have tight connections, and I'm guessing most of us missed them. I only made mine because the next flight was delayed."
Pros: "United crew"
Cons: "Weather. Maybe toss us free WiFi for making us sit on the tarmac for nearly 2 hours"
Cons: "Rough landing in Washington, smell of kerosene in Sao Paulo flight, otherwise good."
Cons: "a 2nd snack for a 5 hr flight would have been nice. Also never heard that they were serving lunch meals to buy, heard the breakfast one!"
Pros: "The connection time Mach very well。"
Cons: "I learned that 3 flight together long hours have no food been sever and we have time to get food from airport. Next time I will do better☺。"
Pros: "We didn’t like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable. Far less room than we expected and the seating posture was unbearable. If United continues this poor level of service as it reaches for every last passenger dollar, it will surely lose business. We will seek alternatives from now on."
Pros: "..."
Cons: "All of my fligts has been delayed and resceduled, so instead of 18 hours to go to hawaii, it took me 36h"
Pros: "Good communication from crew concerning updates and ETAs."
Cons: "Service was a bit brusque at times, but never unkind."
Pros: "The pilot and stewardess were very pleasant to chat with the stewardess was sweet, pleasant to chat with. All around enjoyable She likes her job as does the captain."
Cons: "I fell getting out of my small seat breaking my glasses and hitting my head on the top of seat’nnn"
Cons: "I made a reservation for my whole family and selected seats four month ahead (we reserved 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D). One day before the departure, United informed me that one of my kid had to be moved to 11B a part from the rest of family due to a flight swap. When we started boarding, I noted someone else was sitting on my seat (1D) with his own boarding pass with 1D written. United crew politely asked if the gentlemen was willing to move to 6B, which his original seating in the system but he refused to do so. We' also personally explained to him that if he can yield the seat so that our family could sit together due to my wife's medical condition but he would not cooperate. I noted Those gentlemen on 1D and 1C are either buddies or coworkers. The crews were looking at each other without offering a solution. I ended up telling the crew that I could sit on 6B so that the plane can leave. The departure time was 20 min late u related my seating issue and de-icing took another 40 min. I am a Global Service member and I am very unhappy about the way the whole situation was created and handled by United."
Pros: "The crew seemed willing to reebok flights and they didn't get angry or upset at the passengers."
Cons: "The broken lavatory caused a 4 hour delay. It was a difficult experience because we were kept thinking it was going to get fixed soon but it wasn't."
Pros: "Crew was good. Could watch movie on phone. Arrived early."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Didn’t offer lunch options, just snacks. Barely made it to boarding due to previous United flight being delayed. Appearently, since we arrived early, was no staff at gate so couldn’t de-board."
Cons: "Far away Gate"
Pros: "The flight crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "The boarding time lasted an hour as the front desk staff at the gate insisted that I needed a visa travel document for my connection in China (multiple leg journey). What they failed to realize is that nobody needs a visa for China if they’re connecting in transit. It took a phone call and 3 staff members to sort things out. Not something that I want to deal with at 5:00 am. Moreover, due to the de icing, the flight was late and i just made it to my connecting flight in Newark. It was quite a hair-raising experience overall."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Smoke on the plane crazy delay"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Flat bed was narrow but comfortable. Attendants plentiful & attentive."
Cons: "I'm not sure what makes this business class special "Polaris" . Unlike planes I often take to Asia, there was no privacy and especially no room to put "stuff" without putting seat up, unbuckling, etc. I realize that I should have paid attention to the type of plane. Boarding was chaotic; could not distinguish my boarding line. PA system unusually bad; could not hear or understand any of Capt's announcements."
Pros: "Seats were very roomy and pilot did a great job!. Boarding went great!"
Cons: "We were stuck on tarmac but this was weather related. No gluten free snacks. Some crew was nice others less so."
Cons: "It was a long delay, which meant I missed my connection at O'Hare even though I had a 3 hour window."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late. The seat was so small, I could not open the tablet (folding tablet in armrest). I am 6" tall and medium built. That tablet can only fit a kid"
Cons: "Delayed delayed delayed"
Pros: "Good schedule, leaves at 6pm and arrives at 8pm. Many nonstop flights during the day to SFO."
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for over 40 minutes since construction at SFO was going to cause is delays. Ended up being delayed 30 minutes. The flight was completely full and I got a middle Economy seat. United Basic Economy is terrible, makes flying United honestly worse than Spirit."
Pros: "Both legs of flights went without a hitch"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Entertainment was broken on the flight. Halfway through the captain apologies over the intercom."
Cons: "Entertainment was broken on the flight. Halfway through the captain apologies over the intercom"
Cons: "I was put on an Air Canada flight and sat on the tarmac for almost THREE hours in MTL. Finally took off and am stuck in Toronto overnight. Air Canada was very unhelpful. I have to sleep in the airport. No food vouchers. Sucks."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 1/2 hour delay for a 20 minute flight!!!!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment..."
Cons: "Two delays"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the attendants were nice and my luggage came to pickup quickly."
Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "- entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried.. United booked a hotel room for the night."
Cons: "Poor communication on gate change. Delay on flight boarding, and there were issues with engine. Stuck on the tarmac with no AC, they had us off-boarded since everyone was sweating. Reboarded after, no AC still until takeoff. Delayed more than two hours- this was last flight, and caused me to miss connection flight. Was supposed to arrive in final destination at 11pm that night- ended up getting there at 9:40AM next day."
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"
Cons: "They would not let me take my flight because I missed the first leg. So the flights that I paid for I was not able to use. I had to spend an additional $320 to buy a new ticket."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and there was no other flight to Lansing until 8 hours later, and that one was already overbooked. I took a flight to Grand Rapids instead and was NOT offered compensation for ground transportation."
Pros: "Can't really remember if I liked anything."
Cons: "Unfriendly crew. Flight delayed by more then 2 hours. We were moved from gate to gate 2-3 times. Totally disorganized."
Pros: "Smooth"
Cons: "Delay caused us to miss last flight of day. We have been sleeping on floor of airport for 9 hours. Same thing happened in the beginning of the trip from dallas to chicago. Oh, it was our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Here's the situation- There are massive storms across the state, massive delays across the nation, and a tiny airport packed full of people. All the things needed to make a horrible flying day an even worse day for customer service. BUT the flight crew and terminal teams did an amazing job keeping things together and keeping guests happy. They communicated all the information they knew in a timely manner, and made sure to correct any connections that needed to be processed before the plan landed. Also they kept their calm as people flipped out."
Cons: "I didn't lol the size of the white planes airport. That plan could hold about 150 people at best.... There was at least 600"
Cons: "This flight had a TV for each seat. However, you had to pay $5.99 to watch basic cable."
Pros: "Never on Air Canada again. Food was miserable. They literally told me that they ran out of food (on the flight from Montreal to Casablanca). No kidding. They told us that the flight was full and no more food was available! When we asked for water, they did not bring water. I am not sure if they were out of water because the flight was full! That would be something! Bathrooms were not usable. Utterly dirty. My six-year old daughter refused to use the bathrooms. Water was flowing and the smell was horrible. They should clean that. I can go on but what is the point???"
Cons: "The list would be too long. So, what did I like is a better question in this case. Honestly, I am not even sure if I liked anything. I mean some people were nice, but why? Do I expect people to be rude? I mean, I need to like something extraordinary, something that others don't do. I can't remember anything remarkable. Just nothing."
Pros: "Great crew and smooth flight overall"
Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. When I called United I was in hold for an hour only to be told that my airline was not United but Air Canada. When I called air canada I was on hold for another 45 minutes. They rescheduled my flight for another day. I lost one day of my vacation."
Pros: "I liked that your beverages are complimentary"
Cons: "1 ply toilet paper is unexeptable"
Pros: "The crew were professional"
Cons: "The worst thing is that they schedule a CRJ-70 on this flight. This would be tolerable if the obvious alternative was a turboprop, as if Montreal were a small town, like Flin Flon. But it is not; it is a large and important city, and it stinks that the demand is so low that airlines must use small aircraft on these routes. Is it because Canadian taxes are so high on airlines that fares in turn must be high and not stimulate demand? I can't think of any other reason connecting cities this size would be on crappy little aircraft rather than on at least an A320/737 family aircraft. The problem is that there is not enough room in the overhead bins to fit rollaboards, even small ones like mine. So they have to "gate check" the bag, which does not always reappear at the gate at the destination. Less bad than the choice of aircraft was the fact that after we pushed back, they couldn't get an engine started, so they cancelled the flight and reaccommodated us on a later flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After getting to Chicago on another airline due to weather we come to find out that the flight from Chicago is cancelled due to "maintenance" . We talked to 7 different United representatives at 3 airports and none of them were any help to us. We were offered hotel accommodations in Miami to find out the hotel they booked us does not accept United vouchers leaving us to pay for it ourselves. Another expense added to the trip unexpected. Every phone call to United leads to 4+ hours of wait time followed by "go online and figure it out". I still need a refund for both flights and these bogus hotel vouchers ."
