Pros: "The comfort of aircraft was very good and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Other customers don't seem to care about other passengers. No common courtesy. I had the gentleman behind me continuously kick my seat even after telling him to stop. Lack of respect is the reason I didn't rate my experience higher."

An international flight with a chicken sandwich and fruit is low quality. In comparison, Avianca provided a gourmet meal and a Salvatore Farragamo flight gift with lotions, eye covers, ear plugs, pen, and tissue.

Pros: "Fact that there’s a flight available to get me-from a to b, Crew were friendly-great, cabins clean."
Cons: "Expensive, Delayed flight, unable to hear and understand boarding announcements, No WiFi, and a magazine that caters to the top 5% of passengers. Then to top it off a lost bag and over 2.0 hours spent either on hold or awaiting a call back to resolve issues with my last bag-totally unacceptable"

Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "Check-in agent was very pleasant even through having to deal with a number of cancelled flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed shortly before it was scheduled for boarding, which resulted in further delays/cancellations along the journey. Earlier notification may have allowed me to remain in Atlanta a night or two longer with my family as opposed to having had to spend many additional hours sitting uncomfortably in an airport."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it set off a slew of connection problems."
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: "Everyone was friendly and the beverage service was very quick for such a big flight that was full. It was a great flight crew."
Pros: "Almonds were very good as snacks. Flught departed ontime and arrived early. Checked bag arrived in less than 20 minutes."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Security line, waiting an hour to take off, no time for drink service. Awful flight"
Cons: "I'm sure it was an excellent flight. I don't know though because Delta didn't manage to get me on it."
Pros: "Pillow, comforter, amenity kit were all good."
Cons: "Food was acceptable, but nothing exciting or above average. Seat had some trouble reclining, but eventually worked. Entertainment unit screen had issues with acting like I was touching it when I wasn't throughout trip. Made for major annoyance watching. Delta flight 410 on Oct 1, 2017 seat 3A."
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."

Pros: "Chicken kale salad was inedible. I did not know chicken had gristle!"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly; service was good Trip was pleasant Plane was clean and comfortable."

Pros: "Speed of birding and departure. Very smooth ride on the 777."
Cons: "Not many food options."

Long delay die to pet mix up. Also bags took forever to get to carousel

Cons: "More room"
Pros: "The attendant didn’t take any chance on rainy whether condition and got me on an earlyer flight to make sure I wasn’t goinig to miss my connections flights. It worked out perfectly."

Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Pros: "Horrible check in"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Cons: "Food not so great Also wanted music. Was none"
Pros: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "Good price for long haul destination. Efficient check-in and boarding process. Decent leg room for a budget airline."
Cons: "Food choice a bit limited - especially the free offering. In-flight entertainment is only available from the WestJet app to view on your own device - you need to know this before you board - otherwise you are not able to access any of the movies etc."
Pros: "Had seats in row six -- plus there was room for both our carry-ons!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed taking off from Winnipeg 90 minutes with no explanation given. Made us late getting to Saskatoon and missed our daughter's scheduled ride to pick up our two cars as a result. Had to pay an extra two hours parking at airport, etc etc etc."
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Tiny chairs"
Pros: "West Jet just runs a relaxed yet professional airline. They are just more laid back and accommodating. You can use any bathroom on the plane as well which is huge on those rare times you need to use it. They are funny and chatty and seem to enjoy working together which all translates to a less rushed and relaxed experience for us the passenger. I really can’t complain....I had an entire row to myself....the best you can hope for, when riding on a plain for hours that’s like winning the lottery!"
Cons: "No complaints for sure"
Cons: "I was in row 2 and they did not have the food item I wanted. Seriously?"
Cons: "The crew on the plain was extremely rude!!! Very very dissapointed!"
Pros: "West Jet never disappoints..."
Pros: "Extra leg room, staff very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No tv screens on back of seats, liquids should be offered more"
Cons: "having to walk outside the plane in the snow to get on the bus and vise versa. it was cold and I got a bad cold...."
Pros: "THE YOUNG PERSON FROM GRAND PRAIRIE AB WHO SET NEXT TO ME WAS A GOOD TRAVEL COMPANION"
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE MUCH TOO SMALL FOR TWO MEN BOTH OVER 250 POUNDS TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
Pros: "WestJet was great. I had assistance this flight and they took great care of me"
Cons: "Totally full flight so squished in my seat"
Cons: "We were told not to take the late flight to TO as Westjet would not hold the connecting flight (TO to Gatwick) for us. This meant our TUI connection in Gatwick to Chambery would have been wasted along with bus transfers. West jet did not offer us AC flights that were available to keep us near to our schedule. We ended up cancelling the Westjet flights and buying AC flights to Heathrow at a cost of $3300 + $300 taxi to gatwick + abandoned bus to Gatwick Westjet did offer us a flight on Sunday ! In the end, we are not sure if booking thru Kayak was part of the problem as Wesjet staff said ..... Oh you booked thru a 3rd party Comments ?"
Cons: "The entire flight's baggage never were received. The stewardess even promised that all bags would be received within 20 min. We waited 1 hour until we went to go talk to someone to inquire about the delay. They opened up a baggage claim, but the claim status only ever says open or closed, which says nothing about the status of the bag."
Cons: "Lack of attention from aeromexico in customs to ensure making the connection. Sevice is a joke."
Cons: "2 hour delay, small plane, rude crew"
Pros: "The reservation was quick and effective"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. We missed our connecting flight so we are in a hotel in Toronto now at 1:30 am. And our flight out is at 5:50 am and we will need to get up by 4 to get to the airport by 4:50. Getting our hotel and food vouchers was long and painful and disorganized. Would not fly with them again"
Pros: "Pretty quick boarding, although the boarding time was incorrectly mentioned to be too early."
Cons: "Had to de-ice so we left about 10 minutes later than expected, but somehow still arrived early… but our gate had another plane still using it. We ended up arriving at our gate 25 minutes late. That's unacceptable, especially on a flight that's just an hour long. The gate was so far from the public transportation (landed at Terminal 3, public transport is at Terminal 1) that I missed the bus - got home super late as a result."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Who decided that seats should be shaped that way? Always gives me a backache."
Pros: "Cabin Crew were nice"
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Lots of leg room and liked the screens for each seat even though I could not listen to what was playing on it."
Cons: "No headphones and the crew member I asked said he would ask at the back but never got back to me."
Pros: "Crew was fun and helpful. Was extremely accommodating in helping me switch to an earlier flight"
Pros: "Personable and professional staff. Great service"
Pros: "West Jet is just so much more professional than other airlines that you could select ! The attention to detail goes above & beyond to make each person feel welcome !"
Cons: "From check-in to the flight crew, West Jet is the best !"
Pros: "As usual, the gate and air crew were extremely helpful and efficient. I love that the flight attendants almost always have a great sense of humour. This helps put everyone at ease and in a good mood for take-off. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "We gate-checked our baggage on the first leg of the flight and didn't quite understand why we had to take it off and back on again for this flight when it was on the same plane. There wasn't much legroom; and when the rather thoughtless guy in front of me reclined his seat fully, I could barely move. Luckily, it was a short flight."
Pros: "Best WestJet flight ever!"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "No issue at all"
Pros: "same as above."
Cons: "same as above."
Pros: "Everything was okay"
Cons: "My boarding was no so good. However all went well."
Pros: "fair bit of leg room. fairly relaxing flight, as i am not a frequent flyer. good and safe landings as well as 'lift off' all staff was good on flight"
Pros: "Clean plane, entertainment, crew...WINE! This has been my best flying experience in Economy for a long time. Good leg room."
Cons: "The checkin agents couldnt help me to merge two itineraries for easier transfer between two WestJet flights."
Cons: "Paid for reservation of a particular seat. At check-in was offered my choice of another seat without regard to the fact that I had paid for seat selection. Westjet employee did not honour paid-for selection or offer refund."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "You misled people not telling I have to pay for luggage"
Pros: "Mediocre flight and service"
Cons: "Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English."
Cons: "No problems during the flight"
Pros: "Yes, they did"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew; very efficient and timely boarding; surprisingly good meals"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants were friendly and solicitous. The food was good on the long haul leg of my trip. The trip itself was nice."
Cons: "It seems LATAM changed the way they charge fees in July. The ticket for my return trip included no allowance for checked bags, and that detail wasn't obvious on my reservation information. Imagine my surprise when I check-in for an international flight and I'm told I can't check any luggage because it isn't included on my ticket. I ended up paying $210 to check two bags. Also expect to pay a bit more for decent seat assignments. My default seat assignment was at the very back of the plane, right against the rear bulkhead where seats often can't recline. So, another $60 to move elsewhere."
Pros: "Food was good and healthy."
Cons: "Online entertainment didn't work. Crew was rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "More room legs needed."
Pros: "There was an empty seat next to mine and that made the trip bearable!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and ample food selection (especially for snacks)."
Pros: "The crew was amazing in business class - very friendly and helpful. Best flight I've ever been on!!"
Cons: "There was no wifi on the plane but I know LATAM is working on getting that. Other than that, it was perfect."
Pros: "Good crew. Pretty new and clean airplane."
Cons: "I would like to know and would have booked A little more than 2 hours time in transiting at the airport; since we had to wait and retreive our luggage, re-check in, get boarding pass, and go through security checkpoint again."
Pros: "Leg room and seat spacing were great"
Cons: "Flight could’ve been on time and luggage delivered to passengers in a timely manner."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough"
Cons: "Departure time. Vessel was really old. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Travel time"
Pros: "The crew really was amazing and very kind"
Cons: "The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure"
Pros: "They were very kind!"
Cons: "Probably the space we need more room, so we could stretch our legs and be more comfy!"
Pros: "You made it possible to change my flight to one earlier"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Staff were excellent, food was ok"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft are terribly uncomfortable. Our three hour flight was awful. Narrow thin seat enable more passengers to be crammed in. Great for Latam’s profit but terrible for thief customers. I’d never fly on an A321 again if I could avoid i."
Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."
Cons: "We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards."
Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"
Cons: "Delayed more than 4 hours and I couldn’t get to my next connections. And they didn’t give us a good solution and they gaved me wrong advice and at the end they wasn’t successful on assisting any request that you did"
Pros: "We got on the plane after flight from LAX was delayed by 8 hours"
Cons: "Being initially delayed and not knowing til we got to Lima if we were going to get to Montevideo that day."
Pros: "LATAM is now a budget airline - don't expect any comfort, quality service or food"
Cons: "Too many people have carry on baggage that is too big, no space left in the overhead bins for those boarding last. Seats are too narrow, even for a person that is not particularly big."
Pros: "There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother."
Cons: "We had 4 hours of delay, 3 of them waiting on the plane"
Pros: "better food and service, more space between seats"
Cons: "poor space for legs, food was really poor. no entertainment.."
Pros: "Having to download an app to have access to the entertainment was a big inconvenience."
Pros: "crew! just awesome"
Cons: "some people being to loud at sleep times."
Pros: "There was nothing special"
Cons: "Staff attitude food"
Pros: "The service on board is very good.when you have a business customer service is almost everything."
Pros: "I love this airline! Service, planes, food."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"
Pros: "good flight. Good lounge in Santiago. Flight staff very good"
Cons: "Lounge food not as good as BA or Qantas. Only hot food was some sausage roll / vegetable rolls. Only sandwiches and filled rolls"
Cons: "No Movie Screen"
Pros: "Despite being closed out of my flight, LATAM made it relatively inexpensive to change my flight to the next day. But, flying on other airlines out of Santiago, there is really no need to close the flight one hour before flight time. This is a LATAM policy only. I should have been on that flight. My return flight was delayed 3 hours. Go figure."
Cons: "Arrived 50 min before flight, but it was closed and was forced to pay a change fee and arrive 2 days later to Easter Island. There was still plenty of time for me to make that flight, but LATAM's policy of closing flights 1 hr before flight time really screwed me."
Pros: "I like the fact that LATAM is part of the One World alliance"
Cons: "The check-in process was chaotic and they have lost my luggage even though it was a direct flight."
Pros: "The stewardesses were great. Great service. Both trips we thought the service was the best we have seen."
Cons: "They had difficulty getting the bags on the turnstile but I think that was more an airport problem in santiago. Check in in Punta Arenas was very slow. Sky airlines processed twice the number of people in the same time"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "They lost my bag, which I didn't get back until my return trip home. I planned a week long hiking expedition and LATAM lost my hiking pack. I had to then rent all my gear. I was very very disappointed in their ability to keep track of my checked bag. When I arrived at my destination they had no idea where my bag was. It took days for anyone to contact me about if my pack was found or not. I will be avoiding this airline from now on if possible."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delayed disembarking"
Pros: "Comfortable seats on plane, good food. Good selection of in flight movies and television shows."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been a bit more organized, but it is a small airport and the general line moved quickly."
Pros: "The LATAN costumee service was very kind and professional."
Cons: "I went to Argentina to spend 4 days with my family, wich I didn't see for 2 years. I arrived to Mendoza. I wait until the last suitcase shows. Any of my suitcases arrived. I spent another hour making the complain. I had to come back to the airport in the evening and spent another hour for my baggages. Unfortunate i waist my first day in the airport and only spent 3 days with my family. Also the day that I had to return to USA the LATAN fly was late 1 and a half hour."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Flight from Osorno to Valdivia was delayed, then flight from Valdivia to Santiago was delayed. But they told me I would be OK making my connecting flight in Mexico City (next flight was Santiago to Mexico City)... wrong! I wasn't even close to making my connection."
Pros: "Entertainment, service, food"
Cons: "Waiting in long lines in Miami to check in, over an hour. And then they let other passengers who came late for their flight go in front of me. At that point I thought that would be the first and last time I travel Latam."
Pros: "While I had no problem on this flight, my dealings with Latam agents in phone and in person have been horrific. I had to purchase a new ticket and dealing with them was terrible - long hold times for simple questions, incorrect ticketing, lack of empathy or service attitude. Fly Aerolieas instead."
Pros: "Space between seats"
Pros: "New Airplane and a lot leg room"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Friendly people and good service."
Cons: "The only bad part was it took nearly an hour to get our luggage. Other flights with LAN seemed more reasonable."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Pros: "they gave me the special food"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "A 1 hour flight, delayed. Meant I missed my entire flight and stayed I Ottawa International for 8 joirs"
Pros: "The crew was kindly and friendly"
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable, no entertainment at all if you don’t have your own device"
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
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."
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then without notice back on schedule and the we boarded and sat on the tarmac for an hour. Why board us if we can’t leave?"
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
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 seats were large, and they had power."
Cons: "The flights were both 2-3 hours late, and the airplanes were dirty. They blamed it all on weather, which is fair, but it's almost like their attitude was "hey, we're leaving late already (arriving at 3 am at my final destination), so we might as well not try to have good service since you'll already have a bad memory of this flight!" That being said, I would still take Air Canada in cases such as these where they are $400 cheaper than the competition. I'd still rather have a terrible flight and save $400 at this point in my life!"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
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."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent, most of the staff except one was excellent. The flight was smooth. Got hooked on a new series that I started watching on the plane."
Cons: "The wait time between flights on the way home was brutal but you expect that if you are flying on points. What made it worse was that I had to leave the secure area and collect my bags then wait 8 hours in the airport only to go through security again. On top of that trying to get my baggage tag there was a female agent that should have retired 100 years ago directing people like it was our fault she still had to work. If you can't be nice you should not be in customer service."
Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not so bad..."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was broken which for a 5.5 hour flight is quite difficult. The only compensation the air flight attendant offered was a glass of wine,which I couldn't drink due to being on medication. I had purchased 3 meals and 2 snacks so she could have comped one of them. This is the second time I experienced this on Air Canada with little to no appropriate service recovery. I had my iPad~an offer of free wii fii would have also been an option"
Pros: "My company on the plane was lovely: an older Peruvian woman sharing her experiences in the country."
Cons: "The plane took off 40 minutes late because we were waiting on folks: Can this be a normal standard?! The food was difficult to stomach. But worst of all, the attendants were not kind or particularly helpful. They seemed hurried. At one point when offering drinks down the aisles, the 2 attendants even commented that they were going to beat the other cart down the aisle this time. Furthermore, there was a blind man near us across the aisle. I couldn't see much of what was going on, but the woman next to me seemed rather distraught that so little help was offered to him. When food was served, he couldn't find his cutlery and ate with his hands. When he needed to use the bathroom, he pressed the button for assistance but no one came. Others stepped in to help. When asked if someone would help the man at the gate, an attendant rather condescendingly answered that of course, every handicapped guest will be assisted through the airport. The flight primarily consisted of Peruvians. I can only hope this poor service was a reflection of all of Air Canada, and not what the people of Peru receive regularly. It was as if the attendants were trying to discipline. There were no niceties. Perhaps the language barrier was too much."
Pros: "- plane had more legroom than the usual - plane left and landed on time, an always welcome outcome for an AC flight - in flight movie selection was good"
Cons: "- plane was overbooked, and boarding took a while - staff only offered drink refreshments (ex. coke, coffee, etc) once, rather than the usual twice. The other time they just came by with water, which the flight attendant accidentally over-poured and spilled some on the middle passenger between me and the attendant. Good thing it was only water... - more turbulence than usual, but out of the control of the pilot"
Pros: "The price :)"
Cons: "Wasn't able to play the videos on my iPhone."
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."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent tasting and priced."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was quite mean and just had a poor attitude. Glares, muttering under her breath at passengers etc. Overhead storage is just a nightmare! Always filled to the brim. I've heard flight attendants bashing passengers about it openly. Maybe if you didn't charge $25 per bag per leg people wouldn't do this. Something reasonable like 5-10$ would help this problem HUGE."
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
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."
Cons: "Very slow service"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "We were dehydrated and the flight attendants were stingy with WATER."
Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"
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"
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "I was rebooked so my new flight AC 705 was directed straight to Toronto. Only thing I disliked was that gentleman who was left at the gate for my original flight at 8:30am. He was rude!!!!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Unable to buy food or drinks on plane without a credit. I don't have one !!!"
