Cons: "Nothing. Every thing was great"

Pros: "Everything was great except for the man that smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta."
Cons: "A man smoked in the restroom on the flight to Atlanta, and I didn’t see ANY kind of repercussions for his endangering all of our lives. I would’ve very much liked to see him detained for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."

Cons: "Compostable"

Pros: "The Delta crew is always nice I got wings and a lot of snacks"
Cons: "On the McDonnell Douglas 88 (MD-88) there wasn’t any IFE ( In Flight Entertainment) screen."

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."

Pros: "Quick, efficient, affordable!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over 1hr."

Pros: "The crew was gracious and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane showed wear and tear. We paid for delta+ premium economy and an exit row. The seating map online was misleading and we ended up next to the bathroom. The exit row food tray was broken and was hard to even sit a good tray on. The emergency exit door isn’t well insulated and we were absolutely freezing cold the entire flight. The seats were hard and uncomfortable. The food was not good for international travel. Overall I was very disappointed in this flight. I travel the world and on long hauls the planes need to be cleaned well and seats in working order."

Pros: "The flight crew was so polite and willing to help."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be looked at. Maybe creating better zone style lanes might work, it's always a hassle and always a pain in the a** trying to navigate my way to the boarding door."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."

Cons: "No wifi available and The video entertainment service was bad: my video screen didn’t work- I asked for head phones and no one ever came back to me with some- luckily I had already Dwnld my own you tube and videos so I watch’s dmh own. I hope going home to hawaii these won’t be issue again"

Cons: "The attendants at the delta counter in the airport were very rude and told us we were nit elite member when in Lima and Mexico was at the contrary"

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Plane seats were very small and did not recline. Only one bathroom on plane"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Felt agents held me back at the check-in counter resulting in me missing my initial flight and voiding my complete routing. Had to fly on a flight 7hrs after my booked flight because Delta had no other option (very untrue as there were other airlines flying to my final destination. Delta just didn't bother providing good customer service"

Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."

Pros: "I love and prefer most everything about Delta"
Cons: "Customer service outstanding, flight on time. Clean plane, but couldn't hear the captain announcements we were 30 minutes late arriving in Albany and our car rental office was closed!! We were there for my dads funeral didn't need that stress!!! That was terrible!!!"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats Oddly shaped overhead bins, unable to put standard sized bags overhead, meanwhile they fit in planes of other major airline companies such as American Airlines. No food options, only sweet biscuit which contains soy and milk."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"

Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"

Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"

Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."

Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."
Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"

Pros: "good movie selection."
Cons: "fat guy in the middle constantly moving seat barrier up to get more room."

Pros: "Great service for a short commute trip."

Pros: "We were traveling with a group of 8, only 3 of us had assigned seats when were arrived and the others were on standby. We asked the attendant at the gate desk if there was any chance that the rest of us on standby could be seated together... HE UPGRADED OUR WHOLE GROUP TO COMFORT and allowed us to all sit with each other. Greatest flight experience I've had and such great staff with Delta. Will fly Delta going forward whenever I have a a chance (flew Southwest the rest of our trip - service, cleanliness, friendliness didn't compare)."

Pros: "Westjet's employees were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Delta told us we were flying out on a Delta flight, and gave us a Delta flight number. In reality it had placed us on a Westjet flight without telling us, and we had no idea we were to check in with a different airline. And because Delta unilaterally changed our flight time without telling Westjet, we were unable to check in online and were later told that we were booked on the wrong flight by Delta. Delta's communications with us and with Westjet were deplorable."

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and courteous as well as very helpful."
Cons: "Can't play games at the IFE ... Freezing."

Cons: "Check in seemed to take awhile even though when we arrived there were only a couple of people in front of us. They had multiple staff but seemed to have issues getting the computers to work or it took very long for the staff to log into the systems."

Pros: "Didn’t have to pay for our carry on bags where we did have to pay ridiculous 38$ us for one of our carry on because it was slightly too big"
Cons: "Scolded by check in agent for being late, when there was well enough time to make it if plane was on time. It was actually 30 min late, so it was totally unnecessary. Forced to check our bags but they did make the transfer and picked up fast at Cusco."

Pros: "On my way back I asked for water as the cabin was hot .. and I was told to go back to my seat and buckle up."
Cons: "That they would have turned down the temperature and immediately provided water."

Pros: "Had to pay extra for my luggage I was only allowed one when it was always two."

Pros: "The aircraft room and comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The people making announcements need to slow down. I understand some Spanish but hey were talking so fast it was difficult, then when they repeated in English, their pronunciation wasn't the best but again because they were speaking so fast it was difficult to understand."

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, as expected in business class"
Cons: "1. Entertaining not working Rebooting didn’t fix it Nobody offered any alternative 2. As the last seat, NONE of my meal options were available. Surely they could hv started fm the back at least once to offset this handicap?"

Cons: "Old airplane"

Pros: "Check in and baggage drops were quite simple and effortless."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Confort, sits to small"

Pros: "Brand new Dreamliner! Plenty of legroom in economy"

Pros: "On board services were good as usual. Delayed was reported 1 day ahead. My 4 y/o son was invited to the pilot cabin."
Cons: "After being notified about the delay, airline website didn't work for schedule change, and had to spend 1 hour on the phone to make it. LAN makes great effort in promoting IFE app, but it seldom worked on board."

Pros: "It was a new plane and the service was also good"

Pros: "Everything! :)"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Muy bien"

Pros: "It's a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"

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: "Great staff!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."

Pros: "Breakfast was excellent"
Cons: "TV screen were too dark"

Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"

Pros: "The Air Canada app to have access to the entertainment on board did not work."

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: "Very cold plane"

Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."

Cons: "Late departure"

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: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not so bad..."

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: "My connecting flight to Yoronto was very late and I missed this flight. air Canada was awful. My last trip with this airline."

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: "The entertainment system was fine as far as selection goes."
Cons: "The stewardesses were slow in doling out beverages, so much so that they didn't even get half the plane. As well as I was told they don't do free snacks on the linger flights and this being a shorter flight and should have therefore given out pretzels or whatever."

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."

Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"

Cons: "Delayed flight, nearly missed connection, lost luggage, inconsiderate staff"

Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."

Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."

Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."

Pros: "Movies!! Newer plane too."

Cons: "Delayed , causing delays and missed apt at destination"

Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"

Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."

Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."

Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"

Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"

Cons: "Stewredess who did it did not apologise Had smelly shirt and wet jesns for 3 hours"

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: "Everything was as expected"

Cons: "I purchased a “first class”seat when the door close I switch from my seat to the front seat to put more distance with others passengers since I’m a transplant paciente. The rude flight attendant told me in a very bad tone to go back to my seat that I couldn’t seat in there . Only to see later that she put her coat in there. I got up later to go to the bathroom , also I have overreacted bladder and she told me in same rude talk go back to my seat that if I couldn’t see that the do not get up signs were on. I felt literally she yelled at me . Never asked me if I needed help , or just wait a little . I literally pee in my pants"

Pros: "La puntualidad"
Cons: "La comida"

Pros: "..."
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"

Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Food was not good, flavor wise"

Cons: "Better snacks"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."

Cons: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"

Cons: "I had to check my bag at the desk which I had not anticipated. When I checked in at the kiosk I was told I could only take a personal item - no carry-in size bag - because of my ticket classification. Very disappointed to have to spend $30 I did not plan on."

Pros: "It was very discomforting to here the plane squeaking throughout the flight."

Cons: "No entertainment."

Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."

Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty much what I've come to expect on U.S. airlines--overweight, older, and sloppy in appearance. One of them looked like she had rolled out of bed ten minutes before arriving at the gate. It was the complete antithesis to the flight attendants on Hong Kong Airlines. Ah, for the good old days of air travel. Before the plane ever took off it was announced the the entertainment system on the seat back ahead of those in comfort seats was not working and wouldn't be for the duration of the flight. Having paid an additional $239 for the comfort seat in the hopes of making a 16-hour flight go by a bit faster, this was unconscionable. The food was far inferior to Hong Kong Airlines. In short, it was the trip from hell."

Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."

Cons: "2 suitcases out of 6 came broken, the airline did not accept any claim because they say the type of damage is not covered!!!"

Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."

Cons: "Baggage was lost."

Pros: "The crew was hospitable and friendly. They helped me get to my seat and were very effiecient during their food service."
Cons: "As soon as we boarded, the told us that the wifi was unavailable throughout the flight."

Cons: "No food I was hungry .. because In the airport I didn't have time and they just give cookies lol"

Cons: "I think, on a five hour international flight that you should not have to pay for your entertainment. Really cheap. And if you have a couple of kids? Since the Go App works for free in the states, why can't they offer that."

Cons: "Worst airline meal ever - ok chicken with plain grits and bitter green vegetable (kale?) and a tough dry roll"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything ABOUT THIS AIRLINE SUCKS.. the staff was the worst... no one knew the correct information and I suffered from that... my flight was delayed and a crew member decided that she wanted me to miss my flight... I had the worst experience with this airline... it was my first time traveling with u guys and it was so terrible that I would never travel again with u guys.... I flew first class going to my destination but coming back was the WORST"

Pros: "The meal that was served was exceptionally good."
Cons: "Is it really that much more expansive to provide complementary movies - personally I never watch the movies but many passengers do - I did not notice anyone who purchased this service."

Pros: "It was on time and a little early"
Cons: "I had to pay to watch any movies which I didn't and service was aloof."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Departure delayed, very, very poor boarding. No free tv or music!!!"

Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."

Pros: "Had to return early as my mom passed away. Was able to get flight next day and chg fee of $200 was refunded with proof of death"
Cons: "Flight was late and i could not get an aisle seat, altho I had to chg from original flight just 2 days before this flight"

Pros: "The airplane crew"
Cons: "They left us waiting for hours at the gate without assigning us a seat. When I finally made the line for the third time, the rude lady gave us a seat. Then they didn't call for by groups and we were about to be left on boarding time."

Pros: "I need some substance $400 for a flight And you offered me No water or snack"

Pros: "great crew!"

Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The size of the plane"

Cons: "Didn't clearly explain my flight so I missed my flight !"

Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."

Pros: "Clean, new plane. ComfortaBe two by two (no middle seats) smooth flight. Pleasant crew"
Cons: "The change fee for the ticket I had to change from United was more expensive than the ticket itself meaning they basically just took my original ticket with no recourse for me. Thats ridiculous and I will try to NOT use united again bc of that. They should have change fees not to exceed cost of orifinal fare. Highway robbery."

Pros: "The flight boarded early and orderly. We were able to take off a few minutes early because of that. Flight & seats were very comfortable. Crew were very courteous & professional (even at that early hour). Arrived at SFO approx. 15-20 minutes early. Wish all of my flights went this great. Thank You"
Cons: "I didn't order any food, was only given a snack so I can't really comment on food. There were plenty of drinks offered by crew throughout entire flight."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and very friendly. I had them for two flights and they were just as nice after a long day and s rough take off."

Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Cancellation policy is just abusive !!"

Pros: "Great experience, love the crew, super nice, will fly again."

Cons: "Is a seatback tv too much to ask for?"

Pros: "The staff was very nice and friendy."
Cons: "There was in-air entertainment; however, you needed the United app or to rent one of their tablets. The problem is that they didn't tell us until we were on board. I needed the app on my tablet to access the WiFi but couldn't get the app without WiFi."

Cons: "I am almost always cold. Not so on this flight. The temperature on the plane was so miserably hot that I had sweat pouring down my face. Everyone around me was trying to open their air vents to get more cool air and/or fanning themselves. I asked the flight attendant about it and he said that the plane was just old and it would cool off eventually. It did, about 20 minutes before they cut the air down again for landing. By the time I got off the plane I was nauseated from the heat and stale air. It will be a long time before I fly United again if this is any indication of the condition of their planes."

Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "Plane was crowded and seats were small and crammed"

Pros: "Timely departure, safe timely arrival, friendly crew."

Pros: "Other fliers helping get my luggage overhead, getting enough water"
Cons: "Seat was skinny and I am not, leg space was short and mine or long, not that comes with "economy""

Cons: "Long layovers, could have been shorter. Also not a huge fan of the tiny bag of snacks."

Pros: "The food ? What's food?"
Cons: "That's only give wather!... Is ridiculous"

Pros: "Overall, good. The champagne pre-take off was probably the worst I've ever tried. Service was variable. The seat and in flight entertainment are good."
