Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."
Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Cons: "Our name wasn’t on the plane first ! After a while our names showed up than the plane left 25 minutes earlier and we were stuck in the airport and no one try to help they just informed us after 4 hours that we need to pay 600$ penalty!"
Pros: "The staff was kind and well spoken on the flight."
Cons: "The gate staff was not forthcoming with information and both of my flights were delayed by an hour and no one shared info with passengers."
Pros: "Good food, new movies and good leg space"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour, luckily managed to make my connecting flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

Cons: "If you sit the the second cabin on the 777 they run out of buns and champagne by the time they get to you which is unacceptable for business class and they only finished the meal service 2 and a half hours into a 10:30 pm departure flight which is way too slow. They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."
Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"
Cons: "It never happened."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, specially a guy I believe was called Gilbert maybe."
Cons: "There was no intertainment only the map. Not even music."

Cons: "I always fly with my dog and he goes with me down by my feet so this could always be uncomfortable cause it's tight and not much place so I wish they give a little better seat for people who travel with their pets on board."
Pros: "Entertainment on board had a good selection of movies"

Pros: "- service was good. staff is very friendly"

Cons: "I was assigned a non-existent seat! How could that happen?! I had to sit in a leftover seat after everyone else had claimed theirs."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean seats, good food..."
Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"
Pros: "I got such an amazing deal on this flight that I could barely believe how incredible my experience was. Will DEFINITELY fly Turkish Airlines again!!"
Cons: "No problems at all"
Pros: "Everything..the crew the seats and everything."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Boarding be insured as I have a ticket"
Cons: "All things were beyond airline control. Screaming children, weather delay, and moderate to heavy turbulence. Wind shear off the deck required pilot to punch through and stick the landing, but recovers well."
Pros: "The process went just as it should. Everything was on time, orderly, pleasant and successful. I was able to get to my transfer on time, feeling good and ready for the next leg of the journey."
Cons: "Delayed flight - but it’s ok since I got to my final destination safely. It wasn’t a very long delay."
Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"
Pros: "The red wine was good. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Unpleasant boarding experience: While my carry-on item was well within the Lufthansa guidelines, the lady in charge of boarding insisted that it was too big and did not allow it in the cabin. I have used the same bag in previous Lufthansa flights without any problem. She sarcastically told me that "I am not Americanaki" - a derogatory expression used by those in Greece who consider the Americans naive."
Pros: "So very comfortable with lots of room. The mattress pads for the seats were a nice touch."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and efficient. We left and landed on time a very good flight."
Cons: "Horrible flight"
Cons: "Delay and food was bad"
Cons: "I did not like the delays over one hour delayed"
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport check lines too long. Only half of security checking stations opened. Hundreds waiting in line and the lines moved too slow. After passing the long lines of security checks, you come to passport checking stations. only 1 out of 3 available stations is manned. Again, lines too long and barely moving. Probably many missed their flights while waiting to go through passport checks. We lost almost 2 hours between security and passport checks. Airport personnel were unfriendly, they did show any care towards the hundreds that are herded like sheep in long lines. They could have eased this backlog of people by manning all their available stations but they did not. Will try not to go through this airport in the future."
Pros: "We were treated very well by all staff. Very nice crew"
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Gate changed ast minute so we had to walk a long way to get to it with 3 kids. Airplane with no entertainment at all. Also the worst was getting to Beirut without 2 of our bags. We got one of them 1 day later and the second 5 days after. When we got the second bag few of our things were gone."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Pros: "The airplane too small the seat too tight"
Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "Clean(though toilets still had a little bit of smell, better than Delta and United anyway... The food was surprisingly good, way better than United and Delta! The staff is very professional. The chairs are better than what I experienced with other airlines."
Cons: "On this flight only, the toilets had a slite smell. Usually German bathrooms are an example for the rest of the world to follow in cleanliness."
Pros: "I made it to my destination"
Cons: "Cancelled flight, timing, and a day lay over I wasn’t pre pared for."
Pros: "Great crew. Ontime. Great online check in process."
Cons: "When we got off the plane in Frankfurt, they put us in shuttle buses to take us to the terminal. My wife and I got separated and were on different buses. The two buses took us to different terminals, despite airport staff assuring us that there was only one drop-off point for the shuttles. If there was a sign saying which terminal the shuttle was going to, it was not clear."
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Cons: "Chaos at the gate, TV displays facing the side wall instead of the waiting area, we couldn’t see anything. Need more organization in line. Also, why there is no charger on board for cell phones? No TV entertainment or music or anything. It was clearly lacking the sophistication and class of Lufthansa."
Cons: "Rude staff and poor connection management. Airport sucks."
Cons: "We had reserved our seats ahead of time but as we were boarding we were told that instead of sitting on row 4, we should seat at a row at the back of the plane. We were not notified ahead of time or or given an option. Flight attendants were refusing to help passengers and were actually rude to people who needed help to find a place for their luggage. Honestly, I didn’t expect this from Lufthansa and am very disappointed."
Cons: "Delay due to overbooking"
Pros: "The people behind me had made a tent to shade themselves. Main offenders of the heavenly light were those random people who would open their window. So I guess there is not much I want Lufthansa to do about that."
Cons: "Their needs to be a window somewhere for us center-of-the-plane people to take pictures"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Good crew member little little bit uptight but expected. Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Need to upgrade mefia hardware to 21st century."
Pros: "Crew was welcoming and seats ok for a short flight."

Pros: "I was upgraded to economy plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Frankfurt"
Pros: "I love lufthansa"
Cons: "We waited 1 hour inside the plane for a tore change. That should have been done before take off time."
Cons: "The delay after boarding in Lisbon"
Pros: "My departure from Munich was late but overall I am satisfied with my flying experience with Lufthansa, great job."
Cons: "The flight to Frankfurt from San Francisco (operated by United Airlines) was pretty bad. The outlets for charging phones and computers were out of service in my row, the wifi was inoperative for the entire flight, the entertainment system seized up every 10-15 seconds. The accessories were entirely neglected. It was rather pathetic in that regard, and the food was gross."
Pros: "My first flight overseas was wonderful. Almost never felt any turbulence and the crew was so friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Cramped seats in economy. Next time we'll definitely upgrade for more leg room."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Pros: "all was perfect and helping"
Cons: "nothing all are fantastic"
Cons: "Food was salty, couldn't eat it. No replacement available Luggage disembarkment took forever"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the plane was somewhat new."
Cons: "Boarding is always a cluster (it is a mad dash for the gate no matter what section is called) Absolutely no entertainment was offered. Passengers' seats in front of you can almost be reclined into your lap, forcing you to recline your sit into someone else's lap to have some room."
Pros: "Crew were nice, helpful, and professional. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "There was a lot of noise during all the flight; people were talking loudly and kids were crying all the time. The online entertainment system was not practical at all and it does not replace a 10" physical screen in the seat."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process and tarmac delays consumed the already inadequate prospective layover in Chicago."
Pros: "The flight left on time which was great because I had a connecting flight. Everyone was provided with a pillow and blanket which was great because the flight was a bit cold. The meals were delicious as well."
Cons: "A few times I requested the flight attendants service, I was ignored and had to ask a second time. Overall the service was fine"
Cons: "same issues with the seats, not very comfortable, not all crew members are polite"
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Waiting time between connecting flight 4.5 hrs"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."

Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable. Food was awful"
Pros: "Good service on board"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but announcements were not prompt about letting us know."
Pros: "short, slightly delayed flight"
Cons: "Overnight flights are usually a pain in the neck, which is obviously not the airline's fault"
Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Pros: "Nice and attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable in premier economy."
Pros: "More space in business class (777-300) than many other airlines."

Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."

Cons: "Poor service. Terrible food. Aging aircraft. Terrible in-flight entertainment system. Really not good AirFrance."
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Pros: "It was a nice plane and boarding was well organized."
Cons: "I was assigned a middle seat, if not for that I would have given a higher rating."
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely kind and helpful to me as I was travelling alone with my toddler. I really appreciated their help and kindness."
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."

Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"
Pros: "Fine for a 45-50 minute regional flight."
Cons: "Wouldn’t be great for long-haul flights."
Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."
Pros: "Super fast boarding and smooth takeoff"
Pros: "The fresh bread and cheese."
Cons: "The staff is very unprofessional in receiving the passengers and serving the drinks mainly. The luggage wasn’t received and after 24 hrs no news about it! It’s a shame"
Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
Pros: "It es a good flight back"
Cons: "Items missing on duty free purchases"
Pros: "it was cancelled so they got me on the next flight on Turkish"
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, I was sent around to multiple desks and terminals and no one wanted to assist me, then my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Premium Economy on AF Boeing 777 on this route is not "a little less than Business", but rather "a little more than Economy". Seats, in a 2-4-2 configuration, are hard but OK, as well as the pitch. Good screens and entertainment."
Cons: "With the main meal, AF serves only "ordinary wine", This looks and tastes cheap. On the same route and class, Vietnam Airlines serves premium wines, a nice touch that would not cost fortunes to AF! Also, the "Asian" choice for the main course did not look and taste like the real thing."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."

Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
Cons: "delay for one hour with not even a glass of water very old plan video with tiny screens and bad resolution food quality especially bread is not good"
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
Pros: "Spacing was ok"
Cons: "Scents. Perfumes. Products that have scents that irritate airways. Not good for asthma and allergies."
Pros: "cookies were great"
Cons: "we paid for two seats together (one aisle and one middle) an exit row with extra legroom from paris to LA. but when we got to Prague they had one of us in the middle seat in the exit row and the other in a completely different part of the plane, also a middle row. The folks in Prague couldn't fix this, they moved one ticket to a different exit row, not together, different part of the plane. In Paris, but ONLY after I located my receipt on my phone, they moved us to the seats we had paid for."
Pros: "Entertainment center is brand new and Cleanliness Crew was ok And yeah there's wine (that way you can get plastered and ignore the uncomfortable seats)"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. They're charging for literally EVERYTHING now. On economy class you have many options: - Normal (free!) "ergonomic" seats: uncomfortable, narrow, really close to the one in front of you. - Normal (exit row): just give up. There's like 6 of these and they're taken immediately. - Normal (middle of the plane): are you kidding me? These are NORMAL seats and you charge an extra €30? - Normal (2 seats per row!): what a bargain. Same crappy seats, but two people instead of three! This is really worth my money. - Upgrade to business! Why are you so poor! AF food went from being the best in international flights to disgusting microwave food (especially vegetarian)."
Pros: "Boarded 45 minutes late, and then sat in the plane for another two hours before take off due to a problem with the lie computer. Would have been better to spend that time in the terminal and given credits to buy food, etc. My seat was a regular seat (non exit) and the seat did not recline properly, the USB drive was broken, overall the plane felt unmaintained. The crew was friendly and food was good but I felt not enough was done to accommodate the extra hours we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "nothing is good"
Cons: "the food and bathrooms"
Cons: "Egypt air is one of the worst airlines in the world so everything could have been better. Literally everything"
Pros: "The flights were very good, friendly and professional. Planes were clean and seems to be well maintained for the passengers"
Cons: "Only issue I had was a 5 hour layover in Cairo, not long enough to explore so just sitting in the airport, and there is no wifi available in the airport, even at Starbucks nothing. Apparently an airport rule, but it sucks with a long layover."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "The plane was small, and boring"
Pros: "every thing"
Cons: "Really I have taken this flight several times and they are always perfect"
Cons: "OUr departing flight was delayed almost 1 1/2 hours, resulting in a missed connection in Cairo -- this is not uncommon. The connecting flight waited 6 minutes, then left us. Arranging an alternative (through Rome & onward by late evening) was done , but no one was at the transfer desk for an hour."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "the food and seats"
Pros: "I got an exit seat and it was comfortable and spacious. The crew was really nice"

Cons: "Seats are tight"
Pros: "The plane was clean and cool with good legroom in the exit row."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Quick orocedure"
Cons: "The delaying of the flight for almost an hour with no obvious reason !! Not respecting other people’s schedules and no compensation whatsoever... very poor management..."
Pros: "Check in and boarding was quick & nice The pilot was so professional couldn’t feel take off & landing The host serving the food in this economy section was so polite & helpful"
Cons: "The plane is old style no tv screen in the chairs The Entertainement was so poor & boaring for 11 hours flight! One host crew member (maybe Joe) was changing his shirt in the food area that passengers could see him with his undershirt!"

Cons: "Everything is good except the crew. They are trying to provide my family their number for to make friendship !! It is bad behavior from them."

Cons: "Very noisy ."
Pros: "I visit it before I like this country"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and so cramped. The food was bad. The flight attendants were frustrated and angry. No internet options. The tv shows and movies were all old and there wasn’t very many options at all. Connecting in Cairo was complete chaos and so exhausting."
Pros: "Flight wasn't packed. Reasonable room for carryons. Seat next to me was open, though most seats were full."
Cons: "There was a late gate change in Cairo, which was not communicated to the new gate personnel. They were not ready to receive, there was no female screener which required a delay for the ladies to enter the gate area, and the plane was late leaving. Not a crisis, but was entirely avoidable. Also, I suggest avoiding long layovers in the Cairo airport. There are few chairs outside the eating areas."
Pros: "Possibly the food and the flight is direct"
Cons: "Anything else you could think of. The crew is unfriendly the plane is messy no one follows rules or regulations just a complete mess"
Cons: "i would rate boaring less than poor if applicable."
Pros: "There was nothing special about this flight"
Cons: "The plane was old and not very clean. No personal tv for a 5+ hour international flight. baggage took almost 1 hour after landing. Overall I’m not impressed at all and have flown on much better airlines."
Pros: "Duration of fligjt"
Cons: "The flight took off and passengers were still putting bags up and there were at least people still standing in the aisles."
Pros: "The flight was on time without any delay. The crew was good and helpful. Taking off and landing were good. Checking online was easy."

Pros: "everyone was very friendly and very helpful I felt very safe and very comfortable the flight was fantastic and I plan to use Egypt Air again"
Pros: "The Pilots professionalism, frequent updates. The attention given to the passengers, especially mother's and babies."
Cons: "Ground staff arbitrarily decided whose carryon luggage they should take because the flight was full and loading over head compartments do take up time and might cause delay. I would like to suggest that an announcement be made and ask passengers to volunteer their carryon to be loaded with other luggage..."
Cons: "The plane, supposed to take off at 6 pm crashed into another plane on the JFK tarmac around 7 pm. An hour later we were deplaned and then were uncoordinatedly brought to a shuttle... took 90 minutes to get transported to a hotel... that didn't have capacity for all... then another hotel... still no capacity for all... so I took an uber to another hotel on my own. It's 1 am before I get to my room and crash (no pun intended). Besides the incompetent organizational response in a crisis: The plane was not cleaned Dry -- no alcohol on board Food was meh. Looooooong 36 hours with Egyptair."
Pros: "The timing is so accurate as well they were so fast getting everything done."
Cons: "Most of the crew are really professional but few were little bit aggressive."

Cons: "Poor snacks."
Pros: "Crew whas nice"
Pros: "Good service in flight. Better food than most"
Cons: "Airport handling"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Please note the wrong gate was included on our ticket and announced shortly before the flight so passengers had to run from half way across the airport. Then there were two flights announced for the same gate even though the Baghdad flight was over an hour later. Therefore the gate was jam packed and passengers flying to Amman were unable to access the gate. In all it was complete chaos easily avoided by making sure to correctly identify gates (or leave blank) on tickets and to announce the second flight AFTER the first flight concluded boarding!"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Pros: "Comfortable red-eye flight to Johannesburg. Food very good and plentiful. Plane spacious and not crammed."
Cons: "Crowded and no food"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "A 1 hour flight, delayed. Meant I missed my entire flight and stayed I Ottawa International for 8 joirs"
Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"
Cons: "You should offer free wifi! Air Canada should lead the way and be above the rest!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to provide a good service."
Cons: "Wider seats and more leg room. The return trip from Ottawa to Vancouver was over $1200. I think that’s quite pricey given that any food or alcoholic beverage had to be purchased at an extra cost."
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Flight was smooth once airborne"
Cons: "Delayed Flight Seats seemed very small for an Air Canada Plane"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "It took two air hostesses two hours to service the entire cabin. There is a training issue. I would not fly air canada again."
Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and pilot was knowledgeable"
Cons: "My tv screen didn't have sound !"
Pros: "The flight was on time!!"
Cons: "I find over the past 25 years that I have been flying with Air Canada the customer service has really went to the dumps !!! Every body is rude and don't understand why."
Pros: "Normal flight, short, nothing special about it to mention."
Pros: "Rouge flights are not comfortable no room for your legs and on a four and half flight very uncomfortable. Soft drinks are free but not even a bag of nuts."
Cons: "Not so bad..."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was broken which for a 5.5 hour flight is quite difficult. The only compensation the air flight attendant offered was a glass of wine,which I couldn't drink due to being on medication. I had purchased 3 meals and 2 snacks so she could have comped one of them. This is the second time I experienced this on Air Canada with little to no appropriate service recovery. I had my iPad~an offer of free wii fii would have also been an option"
Pros: "It was a short flight and there was entertainment on board."
Cons: "Missed my original flight due to the delay in the flight from Newark. Had to be placed on standby and this was the third available flight to Toronto I got on. Boarding took forever for some reason. People were in line for at least half an hour so they gave out free earphones to compensate. Otherwise you'd have to purchase it."
Cons: "Air Canada staff appear to wear their job dissatisfaction on their sleeves. They don't smile enough and often when they do its to each other like there's an inside joke we don't know about."
Cons: "On a 4+ hour flight, I was really surprised that there were no snacks or food included in the ticket; only paid "cafe" options."
Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Pros: "My connecting flight to Yoronto was very late and I missed this flight. air Canada was awful. My last trip with this airline."
Pros: "- plane had more legroom than the usual - plane left and landed on time, an always welcome outcome for an AC flight - in flight movie selection was good"
Cons: "- plane was overbooked, and boarding took a while - staff only offered drink refreshments (ex. coke, coffee, etc) once, rather than the usual twice. The other time they just came by with water, which the flight attendant accidentally over-poured and spilled some on the middle passenger between me and the attendant. Good thing it was only water... - more turbulence than usual, but out of the control of the pilot"
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Cons: "Audio jack for entertainment weren't working."
Cons: "Flight was delayed forced us to stay in Ottawa an extra night. Only compensation we received was a $10 meal voucher!!"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Cons: "Very slow service"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "Leaving and never coming back!"
Cons: "Psychotic and delusional crew that take bad customer service to a whole new level!"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Pros: "Movies!! Newer plane too."
Pros: "Staff mice"
Cons: "Delayed , causing delays and missed apt at destination"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "Decent service."
Cons: "I paid 100$ for my seat, for more leg room. It happened that the seat next to me was unoccupied. I thought it would give me an opportunity to stretch out a bit to sleep on the Atlantic crossing. Another passenger's tv didn't work so one of the stewardess told him he could sit next to me. He got more leg room for free. I was cramped and could not sleep because of muscle spasm. The Legal age made it more comfortable but it is not worth 100$"
Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."
Cons: "Buttery pretzels in both directions that are way too buttery. Crew is never overly happy to be there."
Pros: "I was very kindly provided an upgrade and seat beside was empty, it was a great flight. thank you!"
Cons: "i was not able to travel with my spouse. the seat allocation process did not allow me to set this up prior to the flight or at the airport"
Pros: "The complimentary snack"
Cons: "That my seats were not together"
