Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "Yes Crew was amazing. Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Everything was on time & organized"
Cons: "I had to download that Gogo app to watch a move. That sucked"
Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Cons: "They ran out of overhead space we had to check a carry on bag. My video monitor didn't work so that was disappointing."
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Free entertainment, free coffee"
Cons: "WiFi not included."
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Seats were tiny as hell"
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Pros: "All on time, the flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "That I couldn't change my seat (I didn't want in the confort zone) just in an empty row that it was behind me."
Pros: "Buen entretenimiento."
Pros: "On time! Easy boarding!"
Cons: "They had problems with both the wifi and the entertainment system. Super friendly crew further."

Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Cons: "The worst"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight smooth and quick."
Cons: "Gate change and departure time change not reflected properly on boarding pass. Problems with gogo in Flight."
Pros: "short flight not much to say all was smooth crew was efficent"
Cons: "not a delta thing but passengers drag all these pieces of luggage on making boarding longer clogging up aisles ect. gate agents need to be more strict with people past the allowed limit"
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Pros: "once we left Ewr everything went smooth"
Cons: "Late taking off. had to hurry to catch final leg"
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient.. Our seats were comfortable for the long flight.. great amount of entertainment to enjoy for such a long flight.. and good variety of food.."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay due to mechanical issues.. but the safety measures the crew and staff took was very much appreciated."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "Excellent trip. Provided ample food snacks and drinks."
Pros: "Tv s food drink seat size"
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."
Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "Clean, and ultimately fine. Ultimately unremarkable."
Cons: "The agent at check-in was a little cranky, the lack of food (even for purchase) is disappointing, can't seem to spare more than the little cup of soda for beverages. No power in seats, so why use the wifi on battery? Ultimately fine though, just no amenities. We got where we were going on time."
Cons: "I don’t like the charge for checked bag. It encourages people to bring too many and too large bags onto the plane."
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Cons: "Communication from you all. I missed my flight because of the terrible instructions and communication"
Pros: "Exit row, bringing on my own booze"
Cons: "Lots of things, the industry is broken"
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "For a 5hours flight meals should be served onboard"
Pros: "The on-board crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. One lady was very rude to people who are boarding. Also took quite a long time to board."
Cons: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."
Pros: "Great crew and great flight"
Pros: "Unreal service by all WJ employees. Great service getting my 87 year old mom to and from everything."
Pros: "Nope. Just got me to where I was going..."
Cons: "Complimentary food, service (smile a little guys!), comfort."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than expected despite a later departure."
Pros: "West Jet was well organized and very professional in helping travellers on a full aircraft reach Hobolulu. I was particularly impressed by the polite calm and efficient cabin staff. Will use this airline again."
Pros: "Room Sears in row 4"
Pros: "The crew were so kind and friendly. Kept the spirit upbeat and served us well. The bulkhead was roomy enough for carry on bags, so they weren’t taken away from us to be checked, which happened to us on the same flight last year with another Canadian airline."
Cons: "I do miss personal screens in seats, although I understand it’s not really necessary anymore. If there were a ledge or place in seats to accommodate personal devices for better viewing, that would b amazing. No more neck cricks."
Pros: "Everything. Smooth flying from start to finish"
Pros: "The staff are friendly and efficient"
Cons: "The plane is cramped and a noisey propeller model."
Cons: "Food not so great Also wanted music. Was none"
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Pros: "We upgraded to Plus when we checked in and it was totally worth it. Extra space, food, drink. It was great!"
Pros: "Everything from boarding early to funny safety announcement was awesome."
Cons: "I think they should remove the ability to have people lean back in their seats on the shorter flights. It’s clostraphobic when some feel they have to have a ‘lay back nap’ for such a short flight. It is like you have zero breathing room and feels like they are encroaching on my breathing space. People, the seats are already too close together must you lay back?"
Pros: "Flight crew very attentive."
Cons: "Condition of bathroom at front."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Late take off late arrival"
Pros: "Crew, as usual, were the best thing about this trip"
Cons: "Chairs are not that comfortable"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"
Pros: "The staff were nice enough on the plane"
Cons: "They said we were pre boarding so we went and stood in line with our 2 year old. Finally after 15 minutes they actually started letting the line through when they could have just waited 15 minutes to even announce the pre-boarding line. Then we boarded the plane and it was late and another 30 minutes waiting to fly. There was no TVs.. and whatever, we brought our iPad We got to Edmonton and our car seat was quite damaged. West jet couldn’t give us anywhere near the car seat we have and not one that fits in my car."
Cons: "Didn't happen flight was cancelled and had to fly all over Canada to get home"
Pros: "Newer plane so more leg room. Left on time."
Cons: "No inseat entertainment."
Cons: "You're confirmation should include a westjet reservation code. That was a nightmare as i could not find a confirmation email through westjet. I needed to go to the airport to find out the day before and they gave me a westjet reservation code. This needs to be done. Other then that, great"
Pros: "My first trip started on a poor note; I got to airport about an hour before boarding, only to find out that my flight was rescheduled from 9:30am to about 6:15pm ( or so) on that same day without prior notice. I went up to the counter and asked for confirmation for the switch and inquire if there was an issue, which may have affected my original flight. Turned out that the change was due to weather conditions at Toronto (makes sense). I had suggested that it would have been nice to receive some sort of notification, before starting that day way too early and inconvenience of going to pickup my car from the airport parking, only to come back again. The attendant sympathized with my plight and compensated me with a lunch voucher (which was nice of him and WestJet). Matter was resolved; I came back to catch my flight and the trip was wonderful :)"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that my flight was rescheduled without receiving any notification from Westjet."
Pros: "I love WestJet’s in-flight entertainment and the crew was very helpful. There was a maintenance issue that kept us on the tarmac for 2 hours and the crew kept us up to date the whole time."
Cons: "I ordered a pizza. It was awful. Also, my seat was completely flat - no cushion or support - and I was so uncomfortable."
Pros: "The staff are super friendly. The prices are good and the travel times and locations are convenient and what we were looking for."
Cons: "Checking in was a bit of a pain - there was a WJ staffer helping us with the self serve kiosk. She obviously didn't know how to use it, and just hit the continue button and kept asking us to fill in the personal information on the screens. It was funny to laugh at afterwards but not at the time."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "Order ahead food was easy and selection was tasty"
Cons: "Bring a book! Apps to have your entertainment on individual devices is a bad idea."
Cons: "My luggage got left in toronto"
Pros: "Westjet probably has the best crew in the industry. Always so helpful and genuinely interested, caring and having fun."
Cons: "No plugins, and a pretty cramped plane in general."
Pros: "Everything was streamlined and easy to understand. We made it on time and the staff were friendly, especially with our young son who is one Ana half."
Cons: "You have to pay for a meal even though it’s a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Great experience...."
Cons: "There were wait times...too long"
Cons: "You should hire agents who don't lie to passengers. That's not a good reputation 4 the company. Have an office for the baggages where passengers can address their issues."
Pros: "inflight entertainment was good and friendly staff"
Cons: "lots or turbulence and uncomfortable landing"
Pros: "The Crew was excelent, WestJet has the best crew, very courteous and helpful unlike disgruntal AA crew. They also have the best price deals available. I highly recommend this airlines. Thanks"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you buy one of their tablets. Unerstandable given the type of fleets they use."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful and kind. Keep up the good work! !!"
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "They were quick and efficient gwttong everyone ready for a on time depature and we actually arrived a bit early too."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "We did not have to wait long in Calgary after landing and arriving at our luggage carousel. Our two bags were not only first off the belt but side-by-side and we were away in no time-- that never happens!"
Cons: "Didn't know I needed to download Westjet app before the flight and bring my own device"
Cons: "It had over 1 hour delayed no wifi no screen"
Cons: "Flight delayed, crew didn't remove garbage before landing."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"
Pros: "Drinks and snacks several times! Lots of movies!"
Pros: "We got there safe."
Cons: "Really how hard does an airline have to work? I'm Going on vacation so I'm Happy."
Pros: "Seats in Dreamliner have a small pitch. The plane itself is awesome, crew is ok, food’s traditionally horrible."
Cons: "Pretty much everything"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Nice 787"
Cons: "Very cramped no room to move. I can't believe the meals that were served. Very small portions. A slice of bread for breakfast. No butter just dry bread and coffee!!"
Cons: "Terrible seating and washrooms."
Pros: "Convenient quick. No stop overs"
Cons: "could have used more room"
Cons: "Plane delayed for 1 hour...lots of kids, very crowd"
Pros: "The empty seat beside me"
Cons: "Poor connections for movies and wifi- broken"
Cons: "Movie options were extremely limited"
Pros: "Amazing staff, service, comfort, food, entertainment! Already looking forward to our flight home - the cabin crew was hilarious and so great to have onboard. Love it!"
Cons: "Only thing I can complain about is that we sat on the ground for over an hour and left 1.5 hours late. We had a layover before our connecting flight so it wasn’t a problem for us."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket I thought it was air Canada but it was air Canada rouge so no food no entertainment tried to download air Canada app but took about an hour to get 10 percent done so flew with no entertainment no drinks no food nothing. Boarding was a pain had a three year old also had to pay extra 50 dollars for my baggage. Typical air Canada nonsense. Would not use them again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 33hrs and no accommodations were provided to us; no vouchers nothing! They didn’t even have a rep at their desk at the airport to answer any questions; just a sign with a number to call."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours on New Years Eve and in return, we were given $10 food vouchers... only problem was most things were closed in the airport because it was New Years, and what was open the $10 barely covered it. In flight entertainment wasn’t working properly and frequently cut out. Eventually gave up."
Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "The young competent Air Canada staff at the gate and her supervisor were kind enough to give me the last seat for the 11:45 am flight to Toronto on Dec 18th, 2017. After more than 24 hours stranded in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport due to power outage on Dec 17th, 2017, I was so relieved as I sat on my seat, when an air hostess asked if I would like a seat in business class. She said they randomly upgrade passengers to business class when seats are available. So it all ended well, I got home to Toronto safely in (business) class. Thank you Air Canada !"
Cons: "There were no Air Canada personnel to help us, inside the international terminal during the power outage at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport on Dec 17th 2017. It would have really helped, even if only one personnel showed up at the gate to provide support and some reassurance."
Cons: "No snacks at all on a five-hour flight, and only a few beverage services. Food was available to purchase but of course it's expensive. All other airlines at least give out pretzels or something, and I even got a full meal on a 1.5 hour flight from a different airline -- everything else was fine, but the lack of food really ruins the experience for me."
Pros: "Movie selection was great! Thank you for having a vegetarian food option."
Pros: "Affordable and timely."
Cons: "Hard seats, no room for carry-on luggage, and not even a free cracker."
Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and Crew was friendly. The Captain was giving updates when appropriate and even was friendly when the passengers were disembarking. It seems like he really enjoys his job and that made my trip nice. I liked getting the blanket and pillow on every seat. It was very nice not to have to search for them."
Cons: "Didn't have the Air Canada app so couldn't access WiFi to download app for the entertainment. It might be helpful if the airline would tell you ahead of time so you are prepared. Also, no real description of food offerings. Would be helpful if there was a description beside chicken or vegetarian."
Pros: "See previous"
Pros: "My good friend John came to pick me up even though it arrived at 1 am instead of 9 pm....."
Cons: "The wait for plane to be ready. There was a technical problem which delayed it. They gave us a discount coupon and I don't even know what kind of discount we will get. They should have just given us a free one way for a similar route."
Pros: "Flignt from Honolulu to Vancouver delayed. Return flight also delayed."
Cons: "Flight cancelled until the next day and then delayed again without sufficient notice . Air canada hasn't offered us anything worth making up missing a day out of our vacation"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled. Rebooked for two days later, causing us to miss our cruise to Alaska! Never again with Air Canada.So disappointed in missing this trip we had planned for a long time."
Cons: "No help in getting us to our cruise on time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful. My entertainment app was not letting me play a movies so they gave me a tablet for free. I thought that was very nice customer service."
Cons: "Nor enough moxie choices and mostly old ones. The exact same ones were playing on my return flight. The food options were not great. Not enough of a selection. Also my daughter and I were assigned seats apart and I felt not enough was done to help us sit together. We had to handle it ourselves once on the plane."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I avoid rouge at all costs and recommend others to avoid it too. I hate the lack of screens and zero complimentary food. A pretzel would impress me but I relate air canada rouge to delta or united and always have weak experiences compared to other aircrafts."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours at Narita and then again in Toronto for another 2 hours. Plus my family and I were tired from the 11 1/2 hour flight and when we get to check in the attendants were very rude, almost like it was a bother to them when we asked for help, it was probably because I interrupted their conversation. Every airports kiosks are different and that was our first time going through there so we just wanted to make sure that we did it right. Then when we get to the gate where we're suppose to leave out from, I asl the attendant there who I can talk to about forgotten bag on board. She then goes to tell me that I need to call the 800 #, Abd I said but I'm here at the airport can't they just bring it to this gate and she then got an attitude and said that they couldn't do that and I would just have to go to the lost and found which was downstairs. I was on the line with lost and found before I went to ask her any questions, and I mentioned to her that I had been on hold for 30 minutes, and she said they weren't going to answer. So I then asked hire am I suppose to get my bag then? She repeated about calling the 800 #, and at this time a lady runs up the counter thinking that she missed her flight. She shows the attendant her phone and is hysterical thinking that she missed her flight and the flight attendant told her just go sit down it's not here yet you didn't miss it. The customer then starts yelling in another language and the flight attendant just tells your just go sit down calm down and go sit down. She's doing all of this while I'm standing there she pulls out her phone and then told her co-worker I should put her on YouTube the way they do us. All the while I'm standing there because I still have more questions and she just ignored me like I wasn't even standing there. I more than likely will never fly this airline again, I'm paying for their services and to get treated like this, no thanks!!"
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."
Cons: "Delay was not explained, gate change was not communicated. Poor communication overall."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to mechanical issues. Can't be helped, but made for a long day."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable - no legroom. Flight comong home delayed several hours because of maintenance problem."
Cons: "One attendant walked by offering water - nice that they offered water in the middle of the flight. But she didn't even give customers the chance to raise their hands bec she walked by so fast saying "water, water, water." I wasn't even dozing off and I couldn't catch her and I was sitting by the aisle. Dirty bathrooms with doors that don't lock - not just one particular stall but more than one stall."
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Professional and courteous flight attendants. Entertainment system."
Cons: "The announcements. I know you can't do anything about it but our grandchildren will not believe that we had to listen to 12 minutes on seatbelts in the year 2016. We get it already with the seatbelts."
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: "Losing my bag, someone took it by mistake, but all turned out well."
Cons: "Unhelpful crew,dreadful entertainment and dire food!"
Cons: "They need a better system for boarding. It took forever to get us all on board. And it was hard to hear which zone they were boarding since the passengers were so noisy. there should've been lanes for the different zones so they could usher us all in orderly. It was a chaotic mess without lanes. There was no entertainment if you didn't download their app onto your electronic device. No snacks were offered either. I didn't pay for a meal but it would've been nice to have some pretzels or something like that. The controls for the lights, and attendant call button were on the hand rest. It was very uncomfortable since it was a raised section, and more than once I turned on the light without meaning to do so. I won't fly Air Canada Rouge ever again, if I can help it."
Pros: "This was a horrible experience throughout. From the start, we were told to board but left standing on the jetway for 15-20 minutes before we were allowed to board the plane and take our seats. Went downhill from there."
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No space, "Entertainment" had one use their own device but no place to power the device. Audacity to charge $10 to use a rental device for entertainment when other airlines provide free of charge. No air-circulation on board. Screaming children the ENTIRE 6 hour flight. No complimentary snacks."
Pros: "Price was good and flights arrived timely"
Cons: "It's a typical new aircraft that is crowded when full"

Pros: "the crew was super nice. very friendly and caring. the entertainment was perfect. boarding was easy and timely."
Cons: "the seats offer little to no lumbar support. this was midigated a little with the pillow and blanket, it didnt really do much. for someone who has lower back issues, this was a big problem, a reason i am dreading my flight home. on top of that, it was my first time flying internationally, so i had no clue i had to hunt down my flight via flight time board."
Pros: "After late departure, late arrival and waiting 40 min for gate to become available for the aircraft sorry all combined with horrific traffic problem at the La Guardia airport nothing to write home about."
Pros: "Super sweet and chatty flight attendant and check in agent the second day."
Cons: "Not the airline's fault but our flight got cancelled once we were already in the take off track due to bad weather in NYC (heavy rain!!!???) Having gone through US customs and the long way of security and check in and all. We were carrying 7 big bags as we were moving into the US and handling those many bags was a nightmare, we had to do it two days in a row!!! I lost a night booked in a hotel in NYC as I didn't know if we were getting a later flight until just too late to cancel. Very confusing to get to the right place to rebook, even Air Canada employees seemed confused. Rebooking agent took ages. We had paid for preference seats and finally we got terrible last row seats in the rebooked flight. We haven't been refunded since!! Delays and more delays on the rebooked flight again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. Everything was great but they stood out to me and my experience."
Pros: "good entertainment choices"
Cons: "I was on a transatlantic flight overnight, and in coach. Not enough room to get comfortable."
