Pros: "The meals and the consistent drink service was great"
Pros: "Flight was on time and clean."
Cons: "They missed by special meal once."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "Too many pasengers had carryons. Lots of confusion on the plane for storage"
Pros: "the entertainment and food was good"
Cons: "our flight attendants were mostly absent -- the other side of the aisle had much more attentive attendants"
Cons: "Freezing in the cabin that morning."
Pros: "Very good on time, comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was average. Small plane, short flight, no food or beverage service. Pretty average and nothing to complain about."
Cons: "The food. Skip the cup of noodles."
Pros: "My 15 minute nap"
Cons: "The male crew member seemed to be having a rough day."
Pros: "Great value for the money, friendly staff."
Cons: "No notification of 2 hour delay. Missed connection with 2 wrong rebooking on departed flight. No ticket to clear customs and no Air Canada help to rebook correctly."
Pros: "I loved the entertainment options, especially that we could pull up the map & see where we were."
Cons: "Online information was confusing & made it sound like we had to pay for our carry on, so we didn't bring a carry on (just personal item). It needs to be more clear."
Cons: "I booked this flight a couple months ago to find no seat assignment which should be booked at Chechen but was not. Then I was given the back seat against the wall which does not recline. There were standby people on the flight who got much better seating than I. I seemed to get the last consideration. I am treated much better on other airlines with much less early booking. also later after take of it was made known to me there were empty seats further up in the cabin. When I email Air Canada they said they would get back to me within 30 days about my concerns."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and everyone missed their connecting flights. Air Canada put us on British Airways instead but did not inform them and when we went to check in at the desk they did not have us in the system which stressed everyone out. We eventually got on the plane but I had to sit in the very uncomfortable middle seat rather than in my chosen seat by the window."
Pros: "Crew was kind, helpful, respectful."
Cons: "Not very comfortable."
Pros: "Not much to compliment on. The flight did offer a great selection of movies to choose from during the trip."
Cons: "Constant flight delays. We were left on the runway for two hours before taking off due to an issue with the laboratory. The plane was overpacked, not allowing much personal space even in the aisle seat. People were sleeping on the floor and some in the aisles, creating a tripping hazard to those wanting to stand and stretch or walk to the restrooms. Those who attempted to sleep in their seat found that the seats were very uncomfortable and had very little to no leg room. When it came time to land at our destination, we ended up having to circle the airport for an additional 35 mins waiting for the terminal to free up. It was a very long 10hr flight that even the nice selection of movies to choose from couldn't help. Terrible flight experience, Canadian Air has really gone down hill."
Pros: "Nice crew- efficient boarding"
Cons: "One bathroom for all of economy. Poor snacks. No chance to get electronic boarding passes"
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: "Flight was quick, service was great, clean lavatories."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."
Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."
Cons: "Seats are small and these are the regular seats"
Pros: "Crews were very nice. I also liked biscuits."
Cons: "Ground staff was not as nice as the crews."
Pros: "Preflight very convenient."
Cons: "Not able to see my booking on Air Canada, agent was less than helpful. Food okay, except breakfast was a small cold muffin."
Pros: "I liked the flight crew. They were very friendly and attentive."
Pros: "Crew were reasonably patient, but rather impossible to please passengers with type of flight and discomfort."
Cons: "One bathroom for all of the plane? Perhaps 1st class (tiny) has its own bathroom, but otherwise, the aisle was 10+ people in-line for the ENTIRE flight, as 1 bathroom. Really miserable for all concerned. Seats are too tight, entertainment system works only some of the time, seats old and uncomfortable. Did not seat family together (flight full). Overall, one of the worst long-distance flights I have ever had. Should not fly this kind of plane with this many people and not enough facilities."
Pros: "Plane was clean and offered a nice variety of food and snacks"
Cons: "Every flight was late boarding and arriving."
Pros: "Yes, I like it"
Cons: "We could not book for large group, so we have to separate"
Cons: "I never received an e-mail to check in, and by the time I remembered (morning of), this resulted in me not having a seat assigned on my ticket. This caused a lot of needless stress, though to Air Canada's credit, they got all those waiting for a seat assignment on board. On my return trip, I did receive an e-mail - luckily, as the flight was overbooked again."
Cons: "The entertainment was non-existent unless you had an Apple device or paid the $10 to rent one for an hour or so. Really disappointing considering other Air Canada flights."
Pros: "Preferred seating was comfy"
Cons: "2 couples travelling together were assigned 4 seats I opposite ends of plane, no two together and no chg option. Discovered that seat next to my spouse was just assigned minutes before boarding. CSR at AC on phone was rude and unhelpful, boarding staff offered no help either."
Pros: "comfortable seats and friendly staff"
Cons: "no problems with this flight"
Pros: "flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Maple Leaf Lounge at Pearson airport was shabby. We expected a bit more than soup and gherkins, but that's all that was available, except for some dry nacho chips. No electrical outlets. Indifferent staff. Shame on Air Canada! We have visited airport lounges all over the world and this was by far the worst!"
Cons: "1 bathroom for entire coach class? Consistent line of 4-5 and sitting in the back meant someone standing next to me. Turbulence mandated seating generated overt unhappiness from many passengers."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the seats had plenty of leg room as I am tall and hate having my knees hitting the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Flying from US to Canada was a challenge because of all the customs requirements. But,. better safe than sorry . This four hour flight did not even offer pretzels"
Cons: "They try to board by groups but unfortunately they get the entire plane trying to stand in there group lines and don't load anyone for 15 to 20 mins. It congested all the walkways and people just change to the shortest line"
Pros: "Everything was basically on time."
Cons: "Air canada should still give snacks like west jet."
Pros: "The flight was excellant. Something that horizon air needs to aspire too."
Pros: "Seats were wide and very comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew and good wine!"
Pros: "Generous seating. Decent food."
Cons: "Was not told a transit visa was necessary to fly through Canada. Denied boarding in Nairobi on way over and had to book on another airline."
Pros: "Great service, on-time flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. Lady at the counter was not helpful at all. Although my main carrier for the international flight allowed 2 checked baggage free of charge, Air Canada only allowed one free baggage and 2nd baggage for $100 for the connection."
Pros: "Glad for this new route. Will make Europe easier to access from PDX."
Pros: "Most things where fine. Slight delay in boarding but still made our connection."
Cons: "Tried to signal stewards for another beverage but got no response. Lack of customer service."
Pros: "The flight left on time, and arrived on time."
Cons: "While seating in the seats I booked months in advance, my partner and I were presumptively requested to change seats to accommodate a 5 year old and their parent. What frustrated me was the negligence displayed by the flight attendants who didn't ask if my partner and I were traveling together to accommodate a passenger who clearly booked at the gate. Although it was not ideal for the attendants, flight attendants should always as if folks are traveling together "before" assuming a passenger is okay with relocating from their loved ones. It display respects for everyone flying."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight, unless you are flying first class it's not going to be amazing."
Pros: "Clean, quick flight."
Cons: "cramped, not enough carry-on room."
The stewards didn’t tell me that hot food was unavailable when I asked - that it was coming “later”. I missed the chance to buy snacks that were available. The flight was packed - felt like cattle.
Pros: "Our flight got in a bit early"
Cons: "We sat in the plane for 30 minutes after landing waiting for the gate to clear."
Pros: "Crew on both our flights were very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "United really seems to have issues with their planes. Problems on Wednesday then again today. On Wednesday we boarded late and pushed people’s flights back because the cleaners didn’t show up at boarding time and at landing time we had to go back up when the prior flight was still on the runway."
Cons: "Lol, it's United. What do you expect?"
Pros: "The crew was kind and entertaining and super helpful"
Cons: "United's hidden fees"
Cons: "Awful flight attendants. They all hate their jobs."
Cons: "No entertainment for a 6 hour flight. Only served pretzels for food. Most of the crew was fine but one flight attendant was very rude, pushy, and condescending. Literally pushing me out of the way as I’m trying to board, yelling across the plane, rude comments over the speaker... honestly surprised such a large airline would tolerate this."
Pros: "The prevoarding was fine!"
Cons: "I was sat next to two verge large people that smelled and farted before pushback. One finally got up and left to sit somewhere else. The flight to SFO was fine until landing when they missed the landing and took an extra hour and 15 minutes to get to the gate. Passengers were scared for their lives! I was terrified at one point due to the lack of knowledge shared with the cabin!"
Pros: "I liked that it was a short flight and that the over-head bins were big enough for my backpack."
Cons: "I didn't like that my friends, who bought their tickets at the same time I did, with their own cards and checked in at the same time as me, didn't get a seat number. I had one assigned when my ticket printed out, after I checked in at the airport after they did. They had to wait until boarding was almost complete before they were afforded a seat. Seemed really strange. With United already having a bad name from recent stories on the news, it made us worry. Don't like worrying when it has anything to do with an airplane."
Cons: "Got stuck in the San Francisco airport and was promised a hotel room for the night when I departed Portland. When I arrived at SFO I was told sorry you have to just stay in the airport My next flight wasn’t until the next morning Shitty customer service"
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Pros: "Crew, and service"
Cons: "Being stuck 2 times first day o USA in Chicago ( plane late missing my connection ) and horribly late from Denver to Frankfurt! 6hours stuck and rebooking my pick up!!!! His cost me money!"
Pros: "The crew was competent and the flight was easy."
Cons: "I wish they'd waited until everyone got on board to announce that we would need the United app to watch movies during. E flight. They did the announcement too early and about a third of the plane missed it."
Pros: "It was an ok flight i guess but there was no good free in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "I booked the flights for both my sister and I and we were never put in seats next to each other"
Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Plane departed 2 hrs late,taxied 40 min in San Fransisco for lack of access to gate"
Pros: "PenAir computer systems were down in Denver, so flight was about 30 minutes late. Crew was good tho."
Cons: "Terrible uncaring old waitresses overweight, no room for luggage no room for even walk in the plane, kept asking to turn off devices when it is well known devices don't cause any problem. No free internet. Old tired planes, terrible third world airline."
Pros: "Got everything we needed."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The leg room & the service"
Cons: "Neither my fiancée nor I were particularly fond of the inflight sauna. I had try dry my sweat soaked shirt in the bathroom while waiting to make my connection. If the flight had been any longer I would have opened the door to let a breeze in."
Pros: "I boooked through Kayak based on recommendations fron Rick Steves. When I tried to check in the night before, I was told I wasn't on the flights I had booked. Turns out SAS had switched me to a later flight without any notice. It took hours on the night I was readying yo leave for a three-week trip to find out what had happened. At best, I would have found out the next day at the airport and waited an extra three hours. Not the big fun! At worst, who knows? Would someone have been able to figure it out in time? Huge run-around!"
Cons: "See above. Also no vegetarian meal offerings."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."
Pros: "The plane was new and clean"
Cons: "The new seats where not very comfortable one crew member was very nice the other two were curt when dealing with the passengers or moving the cart up and down the isle."
Pros: "Liked that we landed safely and I was treated like a human being not just a seat but the accommodation s were a little under what I expected"
Pros: "Everything went well, from boarding quickly to landing ahead of schedule."
Cons: "A mother with 2 fussy babies somehow sat next to me and they were extremely bothersome. Nothing was done to accommodate the crying babies, and we all know how annoying that is."
Cons: "Seats. Not comfortable at all for long flights."
Pros: "I don't like it"
Cons: "It was the worst flight I ever had in my life, first of all our flight from phenx( arezoina) to New York beget canceled and the company put us in a very bad hot for one night,then they changed our plane to Philadelphia which our flight from there to newhampshire got had be late for more than 3 hours. You are the worst company in this world."
Cons: "They oversold the flight and made me check my bag as a result when I told them I needed to remove the fragile object I was carrying they told me I should have thought of that before buying a cheaper ticket and refused to let me remove the object because the flight needed to take off. When my object came back shattered they informed me they don't cover fragile objects and I should have known that when checking my bag."
Cons: "Ended up the flight was delayed so united helped me change my flights"
Pros: "It was a newer plane with nice features and charging capabilities. Boarding went smoothly, and there were no delays."
Cons: "I could not get their in-flight entertainment to work. Accessed the in-flight WiFi, the web page loaded, and I could use all features except Entertainment. This appeared to be a new plane. The features were nice, but the seats were smaller and, as a result, not as comfortable."
Pros: "Shortest route, friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight out of Little Rock delayed 2.5 hrs dur to maintenance issues, resulting in missed connection and 4 hr delay getting to final destination."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Was assigned a middle seat. Tried to change it, but was not willing to pay $75 to do so."
Cons: "Landed 15 minutes early, waited for the gate open , then ended up 10 minutes late in a different gate further away from my next gate that we had a short connect time to . It's obvious that United spends all its money on frequent fliers so the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves ."
Cons: "Being packed into the seats like sardines, not nearly enough leg room and even when reclined the chair sits too up right. When the seat in front of me leans back, I can't even lay my head down on the tray table because the space is too small for me to bend forward. So I'm forced to sit up right on two long flights, the first didn't even have in-flight entertainment. I can't imagine someone bigger than me (5'4" 150 lbs) being able to even reach the floor if something was dropped."
Cons: "neither flight had a tv on it and the food was for purchase only. The flight from Portland to Chicago had a terrible flight attendent. Very rude and I could see and hear the tension between the two. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight, with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant seemed very tired. I had my garbage gathered up to give when she came by, but she zipped past me with the garbage bag and didn't see my things. She zipped by again without a bag just as we were about to land and I was able to hold it out for her. And she says "seriously?!" to me, as if I had been hiding it from her."
Pros: "The staff were normal and no complaints."
Cons: "I had to share my seat with the man next to me who continually had his arm and leg in my seat area. It's unfair and obnoxious to pay the same money as somebody else who then takes your already small space. I am not a large person (140lb, 5'7") and I could barely move my arms without bumping one of the people next to me. There's no reason that we should have such limited space."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Seating comfort was *horrible*! Looks like they've made the seats more cramped, especially when the seats recline"
Cons: "First when seated there was no room for even my purse in the overhead storage. I had to hold everything in my lap. My ticket seats were separated when I was sure I booked the seats together. The blanket given to my seat was in package but was used and very vile smelling. The flight attendant was very rude, had an attitude when I asked for a drink after I wasn't offered one. When landing and I was asleep, flight attendant hit my head to wake me up to adjust my seat to the correct position rather then in a polite way. Also luggage was not with the rest of the planes luggage and on a differnt carousel. I travel often and are use to glitches, but when cleanliness and attitude come into the picture those are things that can be controlled. I wish to no longer travel with United again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 5 hours with very short notice. With the exception of a $10 food voucher for restaurants that were closed, United did nothing to try to make it right."
Pros: "The agent handling boarding was very helpful and friendly. The pilot did a great job getting us to SFO safely and smoothly."
Cons: "I was disapponted there was no back-of-the-seat screen for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing, please..."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Pros: "Everything from check in to breakfast to boarding was smooth and effortless at PDX. The restaurants are layed out in a smart configuration with plenty of options on either side of security. The staff are friendly and the travelers in the airport are generally personable and in a good mood, which is a stark contrast to the majority of the nation's airports."
Cons: "The boarding process at the United gate could have been more expeditated."
Pros: "The boarding was good and the flight went well."
Cons: "The under seat power was difficult to find. More illumination around the outlets or a diagram showing where it is would be helpful as there is no room to look down and it's awkward to blindly pat around looking for a place to charge your phone."
