Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Smooth onboarding. By rows. Love that! Very professional and kind staff, ground and air crew! Delta is terrific!"
Pros: "One flight attendant was adamant about a passenger across from me, covering his nose AND mouth during the flight and constantly checked to make sure he was following the rules."
Cons: "The safety instructions portion of the flight was not thorough. They just held up the large card and stood there. No true demonstration which was important to me as I was sitting in the emergency exit row."
Pros: "I always have a consistently good experience on Delta. Everything was great."
Pros: "Crew was very rude both to and from Sydney. Always made people feel like they were a burden and they didn’t want to even be there. Will never fly Delta again, especially internationally."
Cons: "Hire employees that at least pretend they enjoy their job."
Pros: "The pilot and steward"
Cons: "Both flights delayed. No information at all on my the first one was delayed. The second, due to mechanical incompetence"
Cons: "Tightly packed seats made for discomfort. My knees were touching the seat in front of me."
Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Pros: "48 hours travel from Europe Thanks to sucky Delta airlines that are absolutely the most horrible company Never ever again"
Cons: "Food and service. Our flight attendant didn’t seem to want to be there. Sub-par service for first class by a long shot."
Pros: "The flight landed early. Check-in staff were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a debacle. Flight was oversold. Passenger had trouble boarding when their group was called."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Pilots were attentive to kids and answered questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "They didn't have some of their food options (and they apologized for that up front), but then ran out of the others by the time they got half way through the plane. That was tough for a five hour flight that went through dinner time."
Pros: "Pilot explained the flight path and landmarks along the way. Crew was friendly to us and welcomed our baby onboard before many other pax boarded."
Cons: "Seats were narrow and I’m not a big guy. 6’0”. 185."
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "The crew worked hard despite a delay caused by holding up all flights due to a lightning strike in the area that caused ground staff to halt work. We were within five minutes of departure and then had a 45 minute delay"
Cons: "It took 90 minutes to get our check luggage in Las Vegas. Our flight number was taken off of the board with about 2/3 of the luggage delivered. This caused a huge queue at the baggage claim office. Folks did not seem to have a clue what was going on."
Cons: "Worst first class service. Only came by twice in two hour flight"
Pros: "yes crew were very good"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Spacing between seats and overhead luggage storage. They ran out of room before the entire plane had boarded"
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "The two stewardesses were awesome helping me to reschedule possible connecting flight due to leaving mdt 2 hours late"
Cons: "The gate agents were extremely slow causing the flight to pull from the gate 28 minutes late. The capitan of the plane needs a course on how to be polite to an upset customer"
Pros: "Delta cramps people into these planes and forces you to put your bags under a seat because they stuff at the overhead spaces. They nickel and dime you for every single thing. There was even one person I saw who had to pay for his headphones to listen to the onboard entertainment. I think Delta should quit being so cheap with the profits they make and give it back to your flying customers. It borders on gouging."
Cons: "Delta cramps people into these planes and forces you to put your bags under a seat because they stuff at the overhead spaces. They nickel and dime you for every single thing.

I think Delta should quit being so cheap with the profits they make and give it back to your flying customers. It borders on gouging."
Cons: "Ac not working properly. Hot."
Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "Left on time. There were plenty of seats available"
Cons: "It was a bit cold. Bring a sweater"
Cons: "Flight was horrible"
Cons: "Never on time"
Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."
Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful, seats were super comfortable"
Cons: "Lateeeeeeee so so so so lateeeee"
Pros: "great selection of movies"
Cons: "it was super hot on the plane."
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."
Pros: "Please see above. Sherry was amazing"
Cons: "Plane was small and older but it was a short flight"
Pros: "Flight Crew were friendly and attentive. Boarding is well organized."
Cons: "My itinerary was changed multiple times, most importantly impacting my arrival time into Victoria BC. This flight was changed twice, the first time I received an email notification telling me the new flight was an hour later. When I got my check-in email 24 hours before my trip was to begin I noticed the arrival time for my return flight had been changed again, this time arriving another hour later. I received no notice for this change. Other than a shuttle service, there are no late night public transit options from the Victoria airport into town--a 25 minute drive. I was left with 10 minutes between the late arrival of my flight to claim my bags, clear customs and try to make the last shuttle. I specifically purchased my ticket so I would have plenty of time to make this connection. I missed it and wound up having to take a $60 (not including tip) taxi to get into town. Changing my itinerary to arrive 2 hours later without notifying me is unacceptable. I've never had any pot-purchase itinerary changes happen to me on Alaska Airlines, which also has regular service between Seattle and Victoria. I'm inclined to make sure I always use them from now on."
Cons: "The flight left three hours late while the crew was waiting for an oxygen tank to arrive. We were boarded onto the plane after it was nearly an hour and a half late, then waited in out cramped seats for another hour and a half as we continued to wait for the same piece of equipment. At one point a Delta employee announced over the plane's PA system that we'd be getting vouchers to compensate us for this absurd delay, but there was no explanation of how to claim those vouchers."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "Charging stations and in-flight texting."
Cons: "The pretzels were oily and nasty"
Cons: "Delayed boarding as the first flight of the day"
Cons: "Delta refused to assign my seats until just before boarding, even though I booked my flights months in advance. This is very stressful and totally unacceptable to treat passengers this way."
Pros: "The process was very quick and easy, from after security the process was smooth and fast."
Cons: "The gate that I was assigned to was a little overcrowded but I believe it could be because of the construction that is happening in the area. Also the security process was a little long."
Pros: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "The plan had Wi-Fi and free movies. Plugs for the phones"
Pros: "The first flight was fine. On time and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The second flight was not okay. We had to switch planes after we were in an ready to leave. Over a two hour delay and lots of confusion , we finally got to our destination."
Pros: "The crew was nice but seemed super stressed out."
Cons: "The plane was old, no entertainment was provided, tight space with little leg room and our plane departed late."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning were efficient. Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Seat was near the restroom and there was an odor for the second half of the flight. Issues with the A/V - hum in the headphones and the touch screen only worked intermittently. Cabin temperature was a bit cold."
Pros: "We were stuck for an hour and a half on the tarmac"
Cons: "We were stuck for an hour and a half on the tarmac"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. I was in general boarding but I was still disappointed with the seats. Hard to stay comfortable during a 3 hour flight. Cabin temperature was a bit cool for my liking."
Cons: "Tiny seats with limited legroom. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Because of Boeing disaster did not go to Halifax but were sent by Westjet to TO and then on with Air France. Boarding areas in TO are a long way away (lot of walking) and customs in TO is frustrating and takes a long time."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "We could have used more legroom between the seats."
Cons: "Always delays with this airline, hope their service improves now they have been bought out by Air Canada. Staff need training on how to deal with their delays, rather than the "I know as much as you" answer. Their staff have always pleaded blind ignorance when disruptions occur. AVOID."
Pros: "Great crew, very accommodating for a small and short flight"
Cons: "Food, food, food"
Cons: "Total rip off. I won't be flying West Jet again if it can be avoided"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was very good."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have coffee on the flight. All they had to offer was a snack and a glass of water."
Pros: "Staff was lazy"
Cons: "Horrible check in Rude Not sure if I’ll fly WestJet Luggage was wet when it arrived Luggage took forever to come to terminal"
Cons: "More water and a tv like air Canada"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "The airport staff was horrendous."
Pros: "noone booked in the seat beside me allowed for more room."
Cons: "food (ran out of items I wanted) seats are mediocre no entertainment stewardess forgot my cream for the coffee - too busy chatting with another passenger."
Pros: "Quick, easy, comfortable. No complaints"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin."
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work on laptop - only on phone or tablet. Westjet seating is tight."
Pros: "The crew was great overal. Great sport and attitude with humor."
Cons: "The flight in Ottawa was delayed twice which made me change my plans twice. The plane was also a little cold heading to Toronto. Otherwise the help from Paul getting checked in was fantastic. He made the bad situation of a delay worth it just talking with him and apologizing for the delay with true empathy . Thank you Paul"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "That westjet q400 is an awful aircraft with terrible slimline seats"
Pros: "Crew and staff are pleasant."
Cons: "There was a typo in my reservation (either a WJ problem or a Kayak problem). As a result I couldn't do an online checkin and ended up getting a middle seat at the airport."
Pros: "counter staff were friendly, courteous. helpful. Flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "prop- jet was loud & bumpy while on the ground at takeoff"
Pros: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and efficient"
Cons: "The plane is cramped and a noisey propeller model."
Pros: "The friendliness, the options through the app with movies etc"
Cons: "Need more leg room on board"
Pros: "This leg of the travelling was fine. I know I got fleeced on the price of the round trip to go home for a funeral but didn't realize just how bad until my seatmate told me he paid a third of what I did. Note to self: Don't ask the traveller next to you how much they paid for their ticket..."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment unless you download their app, however there was no signs or announcements to warn passengers of this. Flight was delayed and they lost my baggage even though it was a direct flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I went through customs and then walked via escalators and moving walk ways to b4. It took me almost a hour. I was the last to board I am sure And had to collect my own luggage and take it from one point to another. I am 70. thank god, when I got on the plane I sat in 3a and was offered a free glass of wine. halleluya. I was exhausted Toronto airport is always a nightmare. I travel a lot and will avoid this airport if I can. I do like West jet but Delta /west jet connection means I have to take my bag from one place to another and I walked miles and could have missed my flight. I am tired. I am going to bed"
Pros: "Korean air is very efficient."
Cons: "We had to rent a car to get to Ottawa because West Jet had cancelled all their flights due to weather. All Air Canada flights were operating. We waited in line for 2 hours at the airport for West Jet to tell us that we needed to call them regarding a refund. We called them and were on hold for an hour and 45 minutes. Then we were told we had to call the travel agent...we on hold for 2 hours. We then called Korean air and they told us they couldn’t contact West Jet-no one knew what the value of the flight from Toronto to Ottawa was. We were only provided with a refund of $4 (for the taxes) when it cost us $280 to rent a car to get to Ottawa. I will never book a flight with West Jet again."
Cons: "Boarding outside with no notice or warning"
Cons: "Our hour-long flight home from Toronto to Ottawa was delayed by two days. WestJet provided a hotel voucher and food vouchers for one day but refused to refund us for a car rental that would get us home in time. While we made our own way home, we were emailed to say that our flight home was delayed twice more."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and how accommodating they were of me and of their guests!"
Cons: "There was quite a delay on my flight and I didn’t get an email to let me know there was a delay. Because I happened to go to check in earlier, I happened to noticed the delay. I wasn’t happy about not getting an email. I called West Jet to find out about the delay and it took approximately an hour to speak to someone. When I did, the delay was explained as weather related and the reason for not getting an email was because they hadn’t gotten to it yet I believe. I wasn’t happy with that as a reply. The flight was then delayed again by several minutes. I would have appreciated some form of compensation as I was going to get a lift home from the airport and ended up having to pay for a taxi as I was coming in so late. In all other flights, I know west jet to be quite an accommodating airline. The crew was great, I simply didn’t appreciate how the delay was handled."
Pros: "Got a window seat Good deal on price from kayak"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hrs Lost my luggage and no word on when it will be returned Never told us about why delayed"
Cons: "Didn't fly on the day I was supposed to fly due to delays. I had to figure out for myself that I wasn't going to make my connection and thus I went back home. We agreed to itinerary for the next day that had a 2+ hour wait at la Guardia and yet I still almost missed the N.Y. to Tampa flight due to delays out of toronto. Had to sprint from one terminal to the other. In Toronto we sat on the tarmac for 90 mins, and this was after dealing with security and other issues with checkin before i even got on the plane. For example, it was difficult to explain that i had already paid for my checked bag the day before. As a result I never got a chance to eat the entire day. And then my bag didn't get to Tampa until later that night anyways. Although the individual staff members were all very nice, there were institutional flaws that made two days very frustrating. I have some sort of debilitating delay on more than half my flights over the last few years, and rarely is there ever an explanation or compensation."
Cons: "It was delayed."
Pros: "Kayak was great to book through. Very simple. Plane ride there was great."
Cons: "Plane ride home wasn't good due to the airplane propellers being louder then usual and noisy, a little unsettling."
Pros: "Friendly people+ great service"
Pros: "It was on time. Quick to board."
Cons: "I’m used to entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment selection is lacking."
Pros: "Quick, efficient and funny friendly staff"
Cons: "Delays Boarding: boarding from both doors: back door and front door, but no direction from the crew to anyone. Ended up with passengers trying to get in the front from the back and passengers trying to get to the back from the front. This created another extra 15 minutes delay when everyone were stuck in the middle...The rest of the passengers waited outside in Canadian winter cold. On a flight already late."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "I like that I got the plus seat for no extra charge."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Multiple delays totalling up to 2.5 hours but only updated 15 minutes as it reached the time of take off. Minimal heads up prior"
Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Flight staff"
Cons: "Had to disembark. So left and arrived much later than planned."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. However it was not really within their control."
Pros: "Always on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Better snacks like porter"
Cons: "No entertain system"
Cons: "Same comment as the previous flight ref movies. I wont take Westjet again on a long flight without movie screens. Not all old people have Iphones or laptop computers. Mike C."
Pros: "The gate and air crew were very friendly. Flight right on time."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Cons: "I didn’t make it onto this flight because it was so delayed I needed to change flights while at the airport to make it onto the next one in time."
Pros: "The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?"
Cons: "The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant."
Pros: "Great service, and no issues to report."
Cons: "Had to spend the night in Toronto for flight delay"
Pros: "We did not make it to this flight since it was cancelled"
Cons: "We were rebooked on a flight with a short connection to London and they bumped us off that flight claiming that they could not get our bags in on time. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew are very proffesional."
Pros: "Everything on time"
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Pros: "the flight was quick and the plane was comfortable"
Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."
Cons: "Small legroom, kinda hot inside the plane"
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "We had to book our son on a flight from Phila to Toronto unexpectedly. We had lost our car keys in Canada and had no way to get new ones. (That's a long and complicated story.) our only option was to fly our son up with the spare key. Luckily he had just gotten his passport. He got a window seat and lived the adventure. The crew couldn't have been nicer."
Cons: "The last minute price if $1000 plus!!"
Pros: "We had lots of leg room unlike the Air Canada Rouge flight that we took from Toronto ON to Kelowna BC. Also very little table on the rouge flight."
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Cons: "Delayed Sat on a parked plane for 4 hours in PHL before taking off Missed Connection in Toronto No compensation/help with food or hotel"
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"
Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
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: "No entertainment system. Very slow boarding."
Pros: "The crew treated me very well. I had reasonable leg room in economy class. The plane was beautiful, clean and super modern, one of the nicest aircraft that I have flown with in many years!"
Cons: "I ordered Asian vegan meals, but I was very disappointed with was presented to me. The food looked awful, tasted bland and insipid! I hope that that problem will be rectified on my return to the US."
Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."
Cons: "No good movies or music"
Cons: "1. Flight left late. 2. After landing sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for gate. 3. After arriving at gate, had to wait 15 minutes to open door. 4. Poor service assisting me to get to connecting flight on other side of airport."
Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "We did have a 30 minute delay, not a big deal but a delay none the less. And boarding was a bit of a mess as announcements were hard to hear."
Pros: "Leg room was great."
Cons: "The pilot wasn't that good. It wasn't a smooth landing at all."
Pros: "My flight was comfortable and without any issues. Good was great. The inflight entertainment should have more choices."
Pros: "The flight is not packed, so rather comfortable"
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Cons: "My Mon couldn't fly because I never have noticed that she needed a Canadian Visa. She came from Mexico with her American visa and the experience buying a ticket with this airline was a nightmare."
Pros: "I liked the choice of movies."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants, Pasquale, was very brusque."
Pros: "Space and meals"
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: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"
Pros: "A very quick trip and the aircraft wasn't crowded at all. Very nice trip."
Pros: "The fact that they have on board entertainment for a short flight (and really good selection no less!) was awesome :)"
Cons: "The crew was a a bit snappy. Not rude necessarily, but not forgiving to infrequent fliers who don't know certain rules. I wish they were nicer."
Pros: "Comfortable and large plane with tvs"
Pros: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"
Pros: "The plane was fairly modern and the seating had more leg room than many other economy flights I have taken. The flight attendants were friendly and courteous. All-in-all a very good flight. I was especially appreciative of the concessions made for skiers when it came to luggage. Also, the luggage fees were very reasonable."
Cons: "I was a bit surprised that no snacks were offered free of charge. I can understand that meals are not included in economy, but nuts, cookies or some pretzels would be nice."
Cons: "Boarding was not clear"
Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."
Pros: "Hourly flights in a Boing 676. Comfy economy class seats with leather headrest (cleaner than fabric). Ample overhead space for carry ons. Individual TV monitors with entertainment (I prefer leaving it on flight itinerary status while reading a book). Good bretzels & tomato juice served by a multilingual flight staff. Boarding, departure & arrival on time to the second. Can't ask for more."
Pros: "Flight attendant very caring and friendly."
Cons: "Gate attendant very rude - made my daughter cry Her seat was way at the back. Baggage handlers lost a luggage strap - sturdy one 7 boarding pass The gate was changed to one at the end farthest from original gate It was supposed to be two flights - she ended up with 7 boarding passes in the end. Second really unpleasant flight with Air Canada in less than a year. Will avoid Air Canada from here on."
Cons: "Salty pretzels!"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "not even a little snack served with the drinks and the amount of legroom was minimal and I'm not tall"
Pros: "The crew actually enforced the zones when boarding, which often isn't the case and tends to slow things down."
Cons: "This connecting flight was worse, as we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour and were not provided with so much as a single beverage the entire time we were waiting or flying. Apart from the great in-flight entertainment system, the whole experience was brutal."
Pros: "Flight was quick and easy"
Cons: "Seats are small. Luckily the flight is short bit for anything longer than one hour I do not recommend this aircraft"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic as always and put people at ease even in the midst of a pandemic."
Pros: "Food was acceptable."
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"
Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "We had premium economy seats and they were hard as rocks and there was nowhere to stow our personal items since we were just behind the wall to first class. It was an extremely uncomfortable flight. Bring your own seat cushions."
Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."
Pros: "Updated seats and comfortable seating. Decent leg room"
Cons: "Snack for purchase and no power adapters in seats of the rear of the cabin . No IFE"
Pros: "Kayak provided excellent info during the trip about flights timings ! Marvelous !!!!"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Pros: "The second lady that helped me, Michelle Reilly, was SUPER helpful. I am so thankful for her"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours, so I was unable to make my connecting flight. I am ending up landing in Portland about 5 hours after my original landing time. I will be missing part of a conference that I paid for. Major disappointment. The lady that helped me at first literally had me making an unnecessary stop, and arriving another 2 hours later, and I STILL would have missed my second flight due to the delay of the first fligh. Thankfully Michelle was very helpful, and switched me over to American Airlines"

Cons: "No wi-fi"

Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Pros: "again the crew was great."
Cons: "nothing, it was a very smooth flight."
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Pros: "It was a small plane and it made up for some lost time in the delayed departure. The one air stewardess was also nice."
Cons: "Waiting for hand luggage on arrival slowed me down to catch my connecting flight. The flight was delayed to start with."
Pros: "Personable staff, great flight time and an awesome landing."

Cons: "Seatback screen the size of an original iPhone, possibly smaller - and no on-demand content to be viewed on it, the movies play when they play. Most TV series available on the app have only one episode. Overhead baggage bins are TINY. Most normal carry-ons won't fit at all in central bins, and some not in side ones either. Expect a fight over them if flight is busy. Large IFE box under every window seat in economy."
Pros: "It was alright"
Cons: "It was united I should have used LAN"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant tho"
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight in Chicago due to my first flight being delayed an hour, which in turn forced me to stay overnight because the next available flight wasn't until the next day"
Pros: "Once we actually got on the plane and took off everything went well. Crew was very polite."
Cons: "Almost every flight I had got delayed multiple times which caused me to miss connecting flights. Had to do an emergency landing in Santa Barbara because the plane was smoking. Stranded in SB airport for almost 5 hours."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Delays in boarding caused me to reschedule to another flight, which the attendant was damn near unable to arrange. The reschedule somehow caused me to lose my window seat even though I was on the same exact flight. This overbooked flight ended up being full of all kinds of grumpy and upset passengers (rightfully so). Uncomfortable seats just made it that much worse. Poor job overall"
Cons: "The airplane had a engine issue I believe and the flight got delayed and I lost my connection.."
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."
Pros: "The attendants were very kind, polite and efficient"
Cons: "1) Seats barely recline beyond 90 degrees. 2) person behind me had knees jamming against my seat the entire flight. 3) Food was unimpressive. was on British Airways a week before and it was great. 4) Paying for cocktails on a long haul flight is absurd. 5) Instructed to "download a ridiculous app" for entertainment. 6) I couldn't get WiFi in the airport to function!!! so was at a loss. I was traveling overseas for God's sake. IN a foreign country. 7) Outlet to plug my power sources for mobile devices into was not functioning."
Pros: "The stewardesses were kind."
Cons: "United didn't even try to hold my connection even though I could have made it if they held it 10 minutes (and it had no further connections). Instead they sent it out early. They had no other flights to my destination until 3pm the next day. The hotels were full and no rental cars were available."
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Pros: "After being in the air for 4 hours without being able to connect to listen to anything, a gentleman flight attendant came to ask if I needed help. He then tried a couple different tools to try to help me. Nothing ended up working, but I appreciated him trying."
Cons: "Before the flight took off, I mentioned to a female flight attendant that there seemed to be something in the headphone jack and would like some assistance. She said that it wasn't the time to assist me with that (which I can understand), but she never came back to try to help. Once in the air, another women recognized that I couldn't connect and said she would be back. I am not sure if she forgot or if sent the gentleman flight attendant to assist, I felt like I wasn't heard at all."
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."
Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
Pros: "The crew were professional"
Cons: "The worst thing is that they schedule a CRJ-70 on this flight. This would be tolerable if the obvious alternative was a turboprop, as if Montreal were a small town, like Flin Flon. But it is not; it is a large and important city, and it stinks that the demand is so low that airlines must use small aircraft on these routes. Is it because Canadian taxes are so high on airlines that fares in turn must be high and not stimulate demand? I can't think of any other reason connecting cities this size would be on crappy little aircraft rather than on at least an A320/737 family aircraft. The problem is that there is not enough room in the overhead bins to fit rollaboards, even small ones like mine. So they have to "gate check" the bag, which does not always reappear at the gate at the destination. Less bad than the choice of aircraft was the fact that after we pushed back, they couldn't get an engine started, so they cancelled the flight and reaccommodated us on a later flight."
Cons: "They over booked the flight. And it was jumping all the time. The worst flight ever!!"
