The service of this flight was wonderful, I love all of them

Pros: "The on board service was very pleasant. Enjoyed the movies on my seat's TV screen. Enjoyed the food very much!"

Pros: "The small plane from Toronto to Chicago was operated by American Eagle. The airplane is a small. I do not have leg room, but overall it was a decent flight."
Cons: "Small airplane"
Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable. I was surprised at how often they would go up and down the aisles checking on passengers, picking up trash, and serving small food items. To top it off towards the end of the trip they put toothbrushes in the bathroom so you can leave fresh, awesome."
Cons: "I really dont have a negative things to say, I was really happy with the service. Especially since I hate flying this make the trip so bearable."

Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Wonderful flight...so great getting premium economy...so comfortable...crew and food were great....one of the best long flights ever!"
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was very good. Entertainment and power on new Dreamliner is excellent. Food - better than the hot dog we received as a meal on the LAX-KIX flight. Still just ok overall. Seat comfort is ok but more recline - at least in premium economy."
Pros: "Couldn't ask for anything more than what was offered. Flying is never exactly a pleasant experience, but JAL makes it as painless as possible. Food was excellent and staff were extremely helpful and professional at all times."

Pros: "I didn't die"
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, headphone jack barely worked and the screen was scratched to hell"
Pros: "Meals at good times during the flight, complimentary wine served, comfortable seats. Overall better than any other airline for economy class. Enough leg room, good attention, never felt like I was riding a crowded city bus as on typical one distance economy class. Worth paying a little more for being treated like a human"
Cons: "I did have any negatives on this flight"
Pros: "The whole service was great. And the airplane arriving on time."
Pros: "Some of your reservations staff in Los Angeles needs to be counseled"
Cons: "Been more polite especially mike in your mileage program."
Pros: "ANA flights are always well run and good enough."

Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "It could have been quieter."
Pros: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Pros: "The cabin crews were excellent. Food was delicious. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Overall had a great experience"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "12:05 am flight back to Lax is good because you can sleep a little then be awake for a good period of time before and after landing which helps promote getting back to normal sooner. Flight got a little chilly whole is was sleeping but otherwise a very good flight."
Cons: "Boarding is done by a bus trip onto the tarmac, then you take the rolling stairs up into the plane. No in flight entertainment of any sort."
Pros: "I like the service. I like the way they checked my back stuff and put back very neat. I’m very happy with your company,"
Cons: "No complaints, I would say....ANA the best,!"
Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."
Cons: "I did think about changing my departure time but the ticketing agency didn’t relly quickly enough so I was stuck. Luckily it worked out."
Pros: "Great service, on time."
Cons: "Seats were designed for Japanese folks. Nothing like being stuffed into a center seat with narrow seats."
Pros: "Food and services"
Pros: "I enjoy ANA and choose to fly with them, normally a good flight"
Cons: "All our issues were another passenger, not ANA’s fault"
Pros: "The staff on ANA are super friendly. The legroom on their big planes--even in economy--was excellent."
Cons: "The food was okay but not great."
Pros: "Security was efficient and quick. Customs was expedited. Both flights, take off and landings, were smooth!"
Pros: "Very smooth boarding process and excellent, lovely flight attendants"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food was great. There was a good selection of shows and movies. The stewardesses came around with water and juice often which was really nice. The bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is fantastic, always loaded with new movies to watch. The same free drinks (beer/wine/etc)"
Cons: "The boarding was terrible. They called for groups, asked everyone to form 2 lines, but after the lines were formed, closed one boarding lane. Some people were late to board for first-class, causing even more boarding delay and chaos. There were 5 crew at the boarding gate just standing and watching. I selected a seat closer to the rear of the cabin, which received much worse attention than any other flight with ANA. I didn't get asked for a drink until very late, and the second time around there were almost no drink selections available. My seat was also broken and would not recline. Aside from the actual airline, the passengers in the rear were very inconsiderate. There was a big family with several children running around/crying/playing with seat-back trays the entire 11+ hour flight. Again, this is not entirely the fault of the airline, but it was a discomfort."
Pros: "Staff is awesome"
Pros: "The quality of your aircraft. Clean, modern, plenty of leg room. The check in agent in Manila, Arnel (or maybe Armel) was especially helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Pax are advised to show up at least 3 hours before flight. My wife and I showed up 3hrs 45 min before takeoff. There were perhaps 40 to 50 people already in line ahead of us. But no checkin counters were open. The first check-ins began 3 hours prior to take off. By that time the line was backed all the way out into the main corridor. It would be MUCH better for ANA and the customer to begin the checkin process 3.5 to 4hours prior instead of 3."
Pros: "More space than usual between chairs. Crew is friendly."
Cons: "Food was too smelly. Good quality, but airplane food cannot be smelly or it get really unpleasant inside the cabin. Flight attendant need to learn and practice English. Very difficult to understand."
Pros: "The attendants are all courteous and respectful."
Pros: "Big TV screen. Food."
Cons: "https://twitter.com/devanshsoni10/status/940564856142311424"

Pros: "Crew very helpful and reassuring though plane late on arrival in tokyo."
Cons: "Due to snow in Seattle area plan departed 2 hours late which made a short connection time, but all went well."
Pros: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Gates kept changing flight was delayed multiple times the flight had no air so I was sweating the whole time my nose began to bleed. I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa they sent me on a hour long shuttle to another airport to fly out the next day."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, food was good, decent movies overall."
Cons: "Cramped for average size American man. 5'10", can't imagine being 6' 2" or taller flying coach."

Cons: "The shuttle bus to the plane was crowded. Limited movie options."
Cons: "Very nice services"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "The flight attendants treat passengers as valued guests. The check-in clerk gave me an exit row with extra leg room without me requesting it and without charge. Average time that you need to be at security ahead of your domestic flight = 15 minutes! As with everything in Japan, flight left on time."
Cons: "The connection time of 1.5 hours with my flight to Canada was a bit short. I had time to get through security at Narita, find the right gate, visit the facilities, and buy a bottle of water and that's all."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Cons: "kayak should let you know when buying the ticket that the first portion of the flight codeshare with united express doesn't cover a second bag I called ANA they said i could bring two so I did but I was charged 100 dollars for it even though it was an international flight with ANA also united express shattered the outside of one of my checked bags so I paid 100 dollars to get a 50 dollar suitcase BROKEN UNITED won't respond to my inquiries. I am very disappointed."

Cons: "a little warm on the plane. food was ordinary"
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"

Cons: "Food was poor, there was no space, even domestic flights have more space than this one.!!"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Food was just ok. Movies were old and not that many of them"
Cons: "We purchased premium economy tickets but could not select our seats. We were assigned separated seats and had to call Eva Air customer service but they would not help. When we arrived at the check in counter our seats had been relocated and were able to sit together. Kind of upsetting having this hanging over our heads until the last moment."
Pros: "Yes both of those were great."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 2 hours and then another 30 mins when we landed. This is my first time flying with Eva airways and all 3 times, it has gotten delayed by more than 2+ hours."
Pros: "Really happy as had a exit seat so lots of leg room"
Pros: "Checked and arranged seating accordingly."
Cons: "Crews could've been more friendlier and accommodating."

Cons: "Awesome and excellent50"
Pros: "EVA graciously accept a name correction to my ticket where most of my name was correct but the first name wasnt. A big help. Unlike travelling in and out of China. So, i appreciated this help. Flying out at 2 am and arriving Taipei at 5 am was a good time choice too. Service on board was good. Lots of refreshments served. Nice plates used for meals in economy."
Pros: "Crew was the best part. They were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food that I could eat was good, but there should be a no fish option. You have a lot of diet types available to choose from but none guarantee no fish. The process for requesting a special meal online was not clear and confusing. Seats were cramped and entertainment options were limited but still ok for only a 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "The food taste not so good."
Cons: "The only thing that was not the greatest, I think was the ground crew in Manila. It took an unusually long time to get my luggage."
Pros: "I love that the crew maintains the bathrooms well. To me, EVA has the cleanest bathrooms of all the Asian and North American airlines I have flown to Asia. Crew is courteous and pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The food seems to have gone downhill. I miss the special crackers with seaweed. The hot meal was like North American airline meals - blecchh. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Food and not enough snacks available. FA is not friendly"
Pros: "Great flight and loved the airport! Lounge serves a great meal as does the flight!"
Cons: "Shanghai immigration is slow."
Cons: "it always seems odd that they don't start loading the back of the plane first, perhaps i'm wrong but it seems logic thus you would not have a huge line of people standing in the aisle putting away stuff while you are mking yur way to the back"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Great movies."
Cons: "Not so good on the television shows"
Pros: "Everything was Hello Kitty. I didn’t expect that but I loved it"

Pros: "Veggie food delicious"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fast to take care of your needs ."
Cons: "People were coughing and sick . Most of them wore face masks , but being in tight quarters was little unnerving . It would be nice if there was a some kind of germ filter to regulate the air others are breathing in. To filter and destroy unwanted virus and smells."
Pros: "Cabin crew works quickly; nobody plodding around."
Cons: "Only thing I would have liked was some pepper with my meals."
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "It had a delay, but not too bad"
Pros: "NO SURPRISES ALWAYS GOOD FLIGHTS"
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "In spite of JFK airport shuting down due to Storm Grayson, EVA airline refused to cancel the flight until 1 hour before the time of departure! They wouldnt listen to my requests to change flights until it was too late. JFK airport put out a notice at 7:30PM stating that they woukd be closed until 7am the next morning. However, i recieved an email from EVA airlines AND Kayak around 9 PM stating that my flight was on time... the airport was closed!! Terrible organization... overall a really bad experience."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade based on being star Alliance gold. Thank you"
Pros: "Overall experience was very good. Check in was long but clerks were very good."
Cons: "I did not like that they moved my cabin bag without telling me. Attendant realized afterwards and apologized."

Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent all around. AFAIK no other airlines offers the 5 course meal Eva does in business. The seats are spacious reverse herringbones. Crew is friendly, and service efficient. Anyone coming from a Western carrier would be impressed."
Cons: "The entertainment selection is a bit weak. Doesn’t bother me as I bring my own entertainment, but may bother some."
Pros: "best international flight yet in all areas, especially considering it was economy"
Cons: "since I flew EVA both there and back to the states, I quickly ran out of movies to watch but this is such a minimal complaint"
Cons: "Flight attendant made my glass of water and starter fall down. She gave me a dessert extra (!) as a replacement and promised to come and clean it up and to bring a new cover. She never came. Eventually, I asked another attendant who put me in another chair and cleaned up. During the flight, NO water was distributed at all. Normally, this is done every 1-2 hours."
Pros: "I took EVA flight 55 from Chicago O'Hare to Taipei Taoyuan airport. Everything went smoothly, from the check-in where the check-in and baggage staff informed me that one of my check-in bags was a little over weight and gave me a chance to repack the bag so I did not need to pay. Security lines for the red-eye flight time were not long, and once I arrived at the gate, EVA's boarding crew moved passengers along quickly. Flight attendants were very professional and courteous. Landing and baggage claim went well. No complaints at all! I would recommend this flight to anyone wanting direct service from Chicago to Taipei."
Pros: "The movie options were good."

Pros: "The staff are nice..."
Cons: "Pork was the only option in that flight."

Pros: "same as previous flight"
Cons: "same as previous flight"
Pros: "On time. Efficient. Clean."
Cons: "No entertainment options-just some generic film. Couldn't even hear the film over the noise."
Pros: "I ordered a vegetarian option meal just to be safe because you never know hat you will get with airplane food. I got on the plane and saw another option I would rather have and the crew didn't hesitate making the change for me."
Cons: "The major downside is carry on luggage . If you like to carry on your suitcase if has to stay at a max of 15 pounds or so. If it exceeds that weight you will have to check it. I checked my bag both ways with transfers and didnt have a problem gettng my luggage. Overall good experience. I will definitely fly EVA again."
Pros: "Cabin quietness Cleanliness Crew attentiveness"
Pros: "Well worth the price. The service, entertainment system and food was great!"

Pros: "They ran things efficiently and staff was cordial and helpful if asked."
Cons: "I didn't realize I was assigned middle seats for.both legs of my long 20 hour trip. It would have been nice if the person checking me in would have considered assigning me a different seat on at least one of the legs. It was fine just not amazing."

Pros: "Food and service from staff onboard the flight. Seat was also very comfortable. Overall very good"
Cons: "At check in the staff felt while flying business class that my carry-on bag was too heavy so they asked me to take papers out and just walk with these. FYI I always take a lot of paper with me to read and as it was a 16 hour flight to Taipei and a subsequent flight of 1.5 hours to HongKong that is what I did. Was really ridiculous and upsetting to get treated for a one wat flight payong $2750 like thos"
Pros: "Very standard flight overall, but was mostly impressed with how hard they worked to get me a veggie meal when it was not in the system. The staff was super accomodating and very friendly. I had read a lot of things about them losing bags, so I was nervous. Mine came through very quickly from Hong Kong to Tokyo, and I had a stop in between."

Cons: "I had a bad flight, we had 16 hrs delay because technical breakdown. I can understand it, but everybody on the flight were really upset with china airline attitude. All passengers must sit on the plane for 3 hours before we went out of the plane, at that time the flight attendants and crew leave without an explanation, We didnt know what happnened!!!!! And during 16 hrs delay in Sanfransico Airport, we didnt have hotel for rest, we really tired without sleep. I dont know how to explain my thinking about chine airline attitiude, really upset with their way about problem solving. I just can say that i will never flight with china airline again in the future..."

Pros: "Better couch legroom than any of the US carries I have flown overseas. Newer plane and attentive flight crew.

Checking staff in Los Angeles to insuring the comfort of a taller customer was excellent."
Cons: "Flight delays, but they where at the gate to insure I made my connection."
Pros: "Nothing, flight got cancelled"
Cons: "My experience with china airlines was the worst. I travel with surfboards. I called a head of time and got quoted a price and when I showed up they tried to charge me quadruple. They said I needed to pay 460 dollars! After arguing with them for 1 hr. They told us the flight was cancelled. Went to Singapore air& they were the best. Free for surfboards. And staff was very helpful. China air is unprofessional, and disrespectful. I will never fly with them again, nor will I recommend them to any of my friends, family, or colleagues."
Cons: "I need, wheelchair service for this trip but very disappointed the service. I carried my bag to find my seat by my myself. The crew only helped me to put up the bag and my umbrella stick until I asked."

Pros: "The plane was very clean and new looking. Customer service from all employees was terrific."

Cons: "The flight was delayed and notice was only sent that morning. If I had known of the delay sooner, I wouldn't have left for the airport as early as I did."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "I could not get mineral water in a bottle"
Pros: "No screaming kids"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, not enough bathrooms (one dedicated for staff)."
Pros: "Very attentive staff Plenty of movie options"
Cons: "Food was meh but that's common for airline food"
Pros: "Clean aircraft and polite personal. Long flight but it was as pleasant as 12 hours in a plane can be. It was 1 hour late which messed up the next flight connection but it was 1 hour late to Taipei so they didn't lose any time."
Pros: "Lot of food, good entertainment selections, friendly"
Cons: "Did not appreciate the Delayson the flights, and this is annoying that you are making me type a certain amount of characters for a review"
Cons: "Airline somehow cancelled our spot on the flight without us knowing, only found out when we were doing the checkin at the airport. What followed was an hour and half of international phone calls to try to sort this mess out. Ended up with us having to go to an airport an hour away to catch another flight so we don't miss our trip. Terrible terrible experience and stressful."
Pros: "Ground crew facilitated the flow of the very long line, making sure it's moving along. The flight crew were helpful in finding a spot for your carry on and were always there when I needed assistance. Food was good but the Taipei-Manila flight, there was only one choice of meal."
Pros: "Staff and crew were nice and courteous to passengers."
Cons: "Digital Screen are too small. Video quality is not good."
Pros: "Crew was professional and very courteous. Helpful staff. Nice smooth flight over."
Cons: "offer water more often"
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Entertainment like new movies are great to watch"
Cons: "Crew must be aware that some passengers only speak & understand English."
Pros: "The staff on this leg of the flight was very nice, however, the next leg they were very rude."
Cons: "It was way too hot on the flight and the smell was very unpleasant. The seats were too close together."
Cons: "Couldn't hear any of the inflight entertainment. With volume turned all the way up it was still very silent!"
Pros: "Flight onboard: Nice interior on 777, food was mediocre, but overall pleasant experience. Flight before takeoff: due to 3 hour delay flying out of Pudong, they passed out water and sandwiches. Then we waited almost another hour before we could taxi to the runway. I blame this on Pudong airport. One of the worst airports for delays."
Pros: "Plane was clean and staff were accommodating."
Pros: "There were screens on the headrest in front of us and they had new tv shows, music and movies all for free. The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats weren't comfortable but the flight was less than an hour. The food wasn't very tasty but i think it's because it wasn't "American" food so it was just a different."
Cons: "They make you stay in China overnight EVERY flight layover......even by saying the weather is bad......others on my cancelled flight told me they'd waited 2 days for a flight but keep being sent back to a hotel"
Cons: "they lost my oversized baggage both ways - arrived a day later both times ."
Pros: "business class cabin was one of the best I've been in. excellent seats and entertainment"
Cons: "business class lounge in SFO needs a lot of work."
Pros: "Better staff than normally, which was both surprising and pleasant. Flight made it on time for the changeover in Zurich, which is very important."
Cons: "Extra charge for luggage - it showed up in the itinerary only after everything has been paid for. And even the paid suitcase allowed 23 kg only. It has been just over TEN years ago that you had two suitcases at 32 kg each included in price! Does the airline seriously believe that you can travel around the world with just a swim trunk in your pocket? This policy is an insult to any world traveller. We do not all go into an all-inclusive resort! The only drink offered during the flight was plain water, again a step down from before where they also offered others, e.g. orange juice. Seating - now that big persons have the right for two seats for the price of one, when will the same rational apply to tall people?"
Pros: "They got me home"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2-3 times with no explanation. The food in the gate was trash . After boarding we waited on board for over a hour before take off , during which time someone was duct taping the inside of the plane together and I sat on a broken seat . The single flight attendant refused to take trash from people who didn’t finish their beverage . While the plane was reversing there was a huge bang and the plane shook as if we hit something . I observed gate agent repeatedly tell customers that she couldn’t help them find out if their flight was delayed and to just look at the computer board ."
Cons: "Air Canada Check In staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. My flight was at 7pm and I arrived at 6:10pm because I got stuck in traffic. I had already checked in online, all I needed was to get my baggage tags and drop my bag off. Instead of telling me where to print out my tag, they made me stand in line to talk to the check in staff at the counter. By the time I got to the counter, it was 7:40 and there was zero chance of my bag being checked in for this flight with the staff showing me attitude. When I told him that all I was here before the drop-off time and all I wanted were tags and that his other staff just told me to line up without helping, he just said "you can buy another ticket for the next flight or leave your bag here and pick it up when you return from your trip." Honestly, the worst customer experience I have ever had!"
Cons: "Put on Turkish air landed 12 hrs late lggage still missing"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Cons: "The airline crew keep on pushing back the departure due to bad weather. No discipline while boarding passengers. Delay after landing to open the door. No clear instructions about the delays"
Pros: "The plane was clean and seemed very new. The boarding process was streamlined in an organized way. The entertainment system was okay."
Cons: "The plane was a huge B787 Dreamliner and the airline didn't allot enough boarding time to accommodate the hundreds of passengers that needed to get on and settle in. Because of this, the flight was delayed by almost an hour and many people missed their transfers. It seemed like an unreasonable lack of foresight to schedule only the standard half hour before takeoff to board ~300 passengers.On top of that, the flight was roughly four hours long (five with the delay) and no complementary food, even a small snack or two, was offered. The seats in coach were made to be decently comfortable padding-wise, but I felt more packed in like a sardine with the people next to me than on other planes. The flight attendants seemed extremely stressed and overworked, and I couldn't blame them."
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "LITERALLY NOTHING Trashiest airline in the world"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "staff was great checkin at the airport was a breeze and love the 2 checked free luggage for international flights. food was mediocre but what do you expect, I'm just glad we got 2 meals and 2 snacks. great touch."
Cons: "only issue was the fact the online checkin was unavailable to us for some reason which basically left my girlfriend and I sitting in separate rows in between 2 people for 17 hours. entertainment was also pretty lacking with only a few movies available."
Pros: "The extra $50 seats were roomy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no one knew why!... Plane had been sitting ready at the airport for hours. Novice flight attendants, they each picked on different things others missed just before them. No consistency, seats left reclined during takeoff and landing for example. One way there was drink service once even though it was a smooth flight and the return had drink service twice even though it was bumpier! Entertainment does NOT work on androids, it is NOT the AirCanada app they tell you to download prior to the flight, it's an AirCanadaRouge.pk file that needs to be downloaded in flight! Which means we're stuck paying for the iPad and of course only with cc because there's no wifi for debit cards.... AC needs to stop this insanely mediocre and yet expensive monopoly."
Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Cons: "Late flight the crew did.t care and many people missed connections. The customer service at the airport desk was understaffed slow and rude. They we're not helpful in trying to get new flights booked and I felt like it was asking a huge favor even though it was Thier delayed flight that made me miss my connection."
Pros: "Ease of service and efficiency."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "few movies"
Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, very pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "No flight entertainment at all."
Pros: "It was OK but it had to be better than the flight to Canada which was delayed 24 hours (just for bad measure). It's a cheap flight and AC warn that the "in seat" screen is no longer provided so criticism on this basis is a bit silly. I noted that the free iPads in Premium Economy provided more films but they were so dated!!! Food in PE was much better as was the general service. It cost quite a bit in the "Auction" but it was worth it I think."
Cons: "This relates to the outward trip when we only found out at the check-in that the plane was postponed to the following day. OK, we were put up in a hotel for the night but 24 hours there was not the best day of my life. I wasn't too impressed with the hotel."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."
Pros: "Their sympathy for our atrocious wait was, free pop and water, and some pretzels. $30 meal vouchers at the limited options gate area, which could only be used towards a meal (really? no where else?). Here's a were sorry email and a discount on your next flight with us. I have yet to see how much the significant cost for that discount but my expectations of Air Canada are very low."
Cons: "That delay was horrendous, I spent 10 hours at an airport. I woke up so god damn early to get there because of news spreading the worries of people waiting at customs immigration to the U.S. it only took us 40min to get through and the flight delay notice was given an hour and a half before departure. We couldn't even sleep on any benches because they were all designed for individuals to sit. It wasn't until our gate location moved to the end of that area was there any carpeted floor space to sleep on. On the flight, economy seating was very tight with limited leg room, and best of all our seats had no window, literally every other row in our section had a window. Air Canada handled this stressful event very poorly, once they figured out bringing a new air craft hours later, and everyone moved to the new gate area, all the attendants had left from their gate post until 40min before the flight which was hours later."
Pros: "Everything. The plane was immaculate, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, the flight crew was friendly and professional. Air Canada's abillity to transit passengers from the US to international destinations is truly remarkable and must be best in class. I went from an inbound flight from Houston, through Immigration and to the gate for my flight to London in under 15 minutes!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Of the five planes we were on, all but one had comfortable seating (I'm 6'1" tall)"
Cons: "The lady helping us through the Toronto airport between flights made my wife cry. We had to stop to go to the restroom on the way to our gate, and the lady complained when I waited to go in after my wife came out. I told her I was going to do that, but she was apparently pre-occupied when I told her, because she was looking right at me when I said it. I then told her that I had let her know that was my plan, but she denied it, then told my wife she was just one of a hundred people. This left my wife in tears. This was a stain on an otherwise good flying experience, but it' tarnished the whole."
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: "At fisrt the flight was over booked. Once we had boarded their was a technical issues with the aircraft, we had to sit in our aiys with nothing to do for just under 2 hours. With this delay in mind their was no form of a free drink as a mini compensation. They had no choice of food."
Pros: "That even though there is a delay, we still made it around the same time"
Cons: "That there was a delay in the first place"
Pros: "This was my first time in Canada never been there before I had a great time until that one moment I had to deal with workers from air Canada except one agent at the ticketing desk....I had checked in online the day before however I had some card issues because they got shut down by my bank and due to the holiday in America I was unable to call my Bank prior to the airport....got to the airport and tried to explain that all I wanted to do was pay for my bag with cash ...but no one took the time out to listen each time i tried explaining myself I was send to a different location to join another line ....by the time I got to someone who was willing to listen my flight was closed ..her name was Aurora and gave me nothing but attitude when I explained my story......anyways finally got to ticketing and a met the only agent that day who exercise some level of customer service that day...if only I could remember her name ...sigh she went the extra mile because at this point I was frustrated and unsure if I would make it out of the country a sane person due to the amount of chaos I experienced prior. She got LISTENED .....SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN...got me on a new flight and went above an beyond to assist me that morning I was on the verge of a breakdown at that point all other staff member was very disgusting not only to my self but the other individuals who had mishaps that morning."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled after already waiting through a 3.5 hour delay. The inbound flight was delayed due to weather, and as a result, there was no crew available for our flight. This left us stranded at Pearson at 3am with no Air Canada agents available for assistance. After a two hour wait on hold with Air Canada customer service, we were told the earliest flight we could get on was two days later. Unacceptable. We ended up having to buy tickets with WestJet. Weather delays are understandable. Not having sufficient customer service agents available for assistance nor having enough crew on call is inexcusable and incompetent."
Pros: "Very helpful crew and staff assisting with golf buggy ride"
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The crew waited so long to start selling food. Then, by the time the cart got to where I was sitting (only halfway back) they were already sold out of the two things I wanted to buy. The tea they served was the dregs from the bottom of the kettle, nasty and bitter. There was no "entertainment," except a crew member renting out a couple of ipads that connected to the wifi. The luggage compartments are oddly shaped so that you can only put your luggage in the long way. It a misuse of space. A lot of people had a hard time finding any place to put their bags. During takeoff, one of the luggage compartments opened up twice."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, free WiFi on board, movies to watch, stewards and stewardesses on board were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "I was originally flying WestJet, and the 7:05 AM flight I booked was cancelled. I hopped online and booked the 8:10 AM flight via Air Canada back to Boston. First, the flight was oversold, so only AFTER I was able to check my bag did I learn that I was flying stand-by. Completely nerve wracking. If I had known in advance I would have booked with another airline. I was able to get on the flight thanks to some volunteers who gave up their seats on the 8:10 AM flight for the next flight out (10:10 AM) in return for some monetary compensation. I arrived in Boston, and after waiting for 45 minutes, I learned my bag was put on the 10:10 AM flight rather than the 10:10 AM flight, but only after dealing with a snappy and disrespectful check-in attendant that seemed to not believe me that my bags indeed did not arrive. The office for baggage services for Air Canada was vacant and locked next to the carousel. Myself and a couple of other travelers, upon getting to the check-in counter and explaining the situation mistakenly lumped us all together and said "okay so you're all traveling together and your bags need to go the same place". Me: "No, that's incorrect, we are not related or traveling together, we just all have the same issue--none of our bags have arrived". Other Air Canada representative, who up to this point had not been involved in the exchange: "She didn't ask you if you were related, she asked you if your bags were lost" and then proceeded to roll her eyes and walk away from the counter. I suppose she misinterpreted my concern for rudeness and felt the need to put me in my place. Granted, my early morning flight cancellation and the stress associated with flying standby had nothing to do with them, but the attitude I was given as a concerned traveler whose bag was potentially lost was completely unwarranted. Compounded with the frustration of the entire morning I cannot describe how infuriating this exchange added up to being. I was told my bag would be delivered to my home by 4 PM that day. No bag. Got a phone call at 7 PM - they'd be there in the next hour. 10:00 PM and going to bed: No bag. I gave up and prepared to make a claim in the morning. 8:30 AM Sunday morning - my bag is sitting on my front porch wrapped in a trash bag. What a fiasco."
Pros: "One person assisting passengers whose flights had been canceled was gracious and skillful."
Cons: "My flight, 370 was canceled. Initially, one of the AC staff at customer service was overwhelmed and impatient. The next flight was delayed by about seven hours. My baggage didn't arrive in Toronto. I found it extremely difficult to learn where the baggage could be, spent hours on hold with Air Canada and then Dynamex, and waited four days to receive my bag. I was with about 100 people at a summer camp. The staff created a funny skit about AC, Dynamex (sp?) and the endless "your call is important to us" tape recording. I understand that flight plans must be canceled and changed due to weather, but AC relies too heavily on automated "service.""
Cons: "Our inbound flight was two hours late. When connecting through Toronto, they lied to us. They said that the outbound connection was on time, that we'd likely missed it. Then, after standing through their requisite customer service line with only one open desk for two full flights, we were told to sprint through customs. We arrived, breathless to find the connection was delayed. We were told that they don't post the delayed connections for fear that passengers won't run or that U.S. customs will close. Uncommunicative and untruthful, their service is atrocious."
Cons: "Hair in my breakfast and they wouldn't give me another meal also by the time they reached me all the options but the overlooked egg was available they didn't explain just dumped the meal on my tray table and when I asked for the other option was told straight out no... I've flown on many airlines and that was by far the most foul meals I've ever had budget airlines do better won't fly ac anytime again.... My original flight was delayed 5 hours to connect so I was transferred to another flight and my bags didn't make it so I went 4 days without luggage also"
Pros: "Size of plane allowing for aisle seating."
Cons: "Delay with boarding for about hour without a good explanation. All monitors in airport shows plane on time when it actually was not. Boarding process also took a bit of time perhaps due to many elderly on the flight. Seating was also confusing as the middle seats did not correspond with aisle seating. This caused delays as passengers had to figure out where they were sitting. Checked in luggage at gate since flight was full and we were asked to volunteer to check-in luggage. At baggage claim, bag delay to retrieve luggage after already hour delay in departure. Bags was not labeled or categorized correctly causing an extra half hour delay to claim bags."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
Pros: "The on-board and Abbotsford-based crew acknowledged that we had all had a very long day. All thanked us for our patience."
Cons: "We were informed when we arrived at the gate that the flight was to be delayed by 8 hours because of mechanical problems. 8 hours! No offer was made to book us on a different flight. No one, at anyplace along the line actually apologized for asking us to wait around for 8+ hours when the flight was delayed. We did not even know what the mechanical problem was. When we finally were able to board the flight, the captain made a personal appearance in front of the cabin to tell us that he and his crew had been called at home to fly a broken plane. He briefly explained that there were no available planes to swap out and the repair required all day. Inexcusable! Our treatment did not measure up to the Canadian tradition of courtesy and politeness."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "They changed our gate three times and boarding was inefficient (it took them almost an hour to load a small plane) and led to a late takeoff. The customs process was ridiculous. Crew did not seem to care. No food was provided on a 6 hour flight that boarded at 6pm. Most people would not have thought that they needed to eat dinner before the flight. You had the option of purchasing snacks. The people in the rear of the plan did not receive the honor of buying snacks (or even getting a cup of water) until 3 or 4 hours into the flight. Uncomfortable seats. Avoid Air Canada until they get their act together or they lower their prices to reflect their new status as a discount airline."
Pros: "Got on flight"
Cons: "Got boarding pass but no signs to differentiate Air Canada counters (US-bound, domestic, international). Went to wrong counter and had to run to right one Booked flight. When I checked bag, I got a standby with hope that I could get on flight. Fortunately, I was able to make it. If I had connecting flights, it would have been a nightmare Same boring old movies and TV - 2 broke girls episodes. Just drink, nothing else for morning flight. Something to eat? It is an international (Can-US) flight Slow unloading of luggage"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good and the staff did reasonably well even though most of the customers were clearly unhappy."
Cons: "A majority of flights run by Air Canada to the US were delayed. If this had been due to weather, fine, but at least our delay was caused by mechanical malfunction. Our flight was delayed for 5 hours due to multiple different mechanical issues including that the bathroom would not function during the entire flight, the wing flap had issues and the door would not seal correctly. The flight immediately preceding ours to Minneapolis was also delayed by over 4 hours. Surprisingly the flight before that also had a bathroom malfunction that prevented customers from using the bathroom. If this was the exception we could understand, but looking at the history of our flight, it's only on time 23% of the time. The poor customer service people must hate their lives. Something needs to change."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was awful"
Pros: "Crew was nice but customer service at the airport and over the phone is terrible (takes over 30 min to speak with someone and a few times they hang up the phone)"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed for over 36 hours and customer service hotline was useless."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well. Only watched one movie so not sure in selection. Nice to find entertainment included in the ticket price."
Cons: "Plane was 50 minutes late leaving Toronto, luggage took between 30 to 40 minutes to come out at Vancouver airport. Three flights were assigned to one carousel, while a nearby carousel had only one flight assigned to it and was not yet in use, presumably because the flight had not arrived and another nearby carousel was broken. Why not have at least one other flight use the unused, working carousel?"
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours.

Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"
