Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Food was less than acceptable. Service could have been better."
Pros: "Short flight."

Cons: "Too crowded and narrow seats"
Pros: "The direct flight from PIT to SEA was awesome!!!"
Pros: "My plane was delayed due to one of the crew members getting sick. Katie was her repacement, I couldn't of asked for a more pleasant flight attendant.

Cons: "The temperature was about 84 degrees in row 8 and despite my complaint, and a adjustment, it was still about 80 for the entire flight. The flight attendant said that it’s always warm in that part of the cabin, but in all my years of flying (pretty frequently for the past 8yrs), I’ve never had this issue. If anything, it’s usually on the cooler side. Regardless of the reason, I was in a premium seat (paid extra $99) and to be so uncomfortable for this 5hr the red eye flight was super disappointing."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Pros: "Pilot take off and landing smooth, quick stress free flight , staff experience also great! Thanks!"
Pros: "Everything, overall an amazing experience."
Pros: "Ms. Pam who helped me with check in @ Anchorage was absolutely AMAZING!! Made me fall in love with Alaskan Airlines!!!"
Pros: "Everyone super friendly no other complaints"

Pros: "Good leg room"

Cons: "No entertainment but I didn't really expect it on such a short flight."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Pros: "Boarding was a few minutes early (versus the typical few minutes late), it was easy, plenty of room/clearance for my stuffed roller carry on, comfy seats, great service throughout. I am not often flying into or out of cities that Alaska services but when I am, I almost always chose to fly Alaska :)"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Great new modern plane with power at every seat!"
Pros: "The gate agents and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "When I checked my bag. They had to hand write a slip for the next leg of my flight (Calgary to London). This added about 10 minutes of time. It's 2017, how can it still require paper write up??"
Pros: "Staff were efficient & helpful. Flight was on time. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "Plane was noisy."
Pros: "Checkin staff were great. They sent someone into the long lines to bring people to the front who were leaving on the next flight."
Cons: "The crazy scene at the gate before boarding with many different flights all jumbled in same area so no one knows where the line is especially as they tell you to get there 45 minutes before they actually have a plane there to board."
Cons: "Way too hot in the cabin. Poor legroom."
Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Lots of flights leaving the same time through side by side gates - and all delayed. yuck"
Cons: "Despite the staff who unloaded me in the isle chair having a great attitude, they were inexperienced."
Pros: "Very pleasent and we'll up kept airplane with plenty of over head storage"
Pros: "Great level of service."
Pros: "Inexpensive flight Nice desk people they did give us regular updates and clear expanation of why we were delayed"
Cons: "They took our small carry on bags planeside with a PROMISE to return planeside in Calgary - but didn't - they came through just like a checked back 25 minute wait in Calgary and one of the LAST bags off the flight! Plane was 20 minutes late leaving"
Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Need to start earlier with pre boarding. This caused a back up bcz an elderly couple had not pre boarded earlier. They were very frail and needed a lot of help. Perhaps they cannot hear the announcement. Keep them close to the gate. Food is pricy, poor variety, and skimpy"
Pros: "We arrived early!"
Cons: "TV screen didn't work at all."
Pros: "The crew was polite and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding was on time however it took a while to get everyone seated and situated on the plane because crew didn't regulate/assist passengers with luggage. So some passengers who weren't monitored put a lot of personal items beyond their carry-on in the overhead bins causing a shortage of storage space for the rest of us. There were also no TVs on the plane so you're out of luck if you didn't bring a book or if you didn't purchase the inflight wifi."
Cons: "Large people that take up part of your seat should be forced to pay for first class. Uncomfortable ride for me"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "We had a six hour layover in LAX and our luggage still didn't get transferred to our next flight and so our first 3 days in Ecuador was without luggage!"
Pros: "My window seat"
Cons: "No usb to charge my phone. It died while I was getting some awesome pictures."
Pros: "Friendly, caring, and knowledgable staff"
Cons: "No hot food choice on 6+ hour flight."
Pros: "Checking was the easiest way to fly. I was able to pay for my checked bag before I got there, and everything was pretty much on time. We were slightly delayed by weather. Baggage was out quickly after arrival."
Cons: "The only negative I experienced was the boarding process. They seemed to ask for every special group under the sun before boarding the regular passengers. In fact, people got impatient waiting. They just started checking in without waiting to have their rows called."
Pros: "Most of the crew was great with the exception of curbside check-in in Denver."
Cons: "Curbside needs to stop chasing cash tips and do their jobs. If they focused on that tips would be easy to come by. The curbside attendant that took my bag didn’t even bother to check my id. He asked me my name and asked where my destination was. I told him Cincinnati as a layover then LaGuardia where he said that was wrong. He then proceeded to print a boarding pass that wasn’t mine and load my bag into the conveyor. Not 5 mins go by when I realize what happened I wound up having to go to special services to rectify the situation. Which ultimately consisted of me waiting another hour in LaGuardia to get my bag. Please delta have these curbside handlers actually want to do their job and stop chasing cash tips."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, boarding was good"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work, my tv didn’t work either"
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Luggage drop was severely understaffed. We had checked in, had boarding passes but there was a 45 minute wait just to drop off a checked bag."
Pros: "Comfortable (only) because lots of empty seats."
Pros: "There was an incredibly large passenger next to me and I was essentially afforded only a quarter of my seat. It is not really fair for anyone to have to sit next to someone taking up twice their seat."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "The flight was average, but the quality of travel on Delta this year has been the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s average at best and I’m considering going back to American because I have yet to have a true Delta flight consistent with previous years, the whole reason I switched to Delta."
Cons: "Nothing my timing was a bit off it all worked out well"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work"
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "Seats were horrible, we all booked together and a bunch of my group got bumped to a different flight."
Cons: "Basic economy is just another way for the airlines to provide low service and nickel and dime everyone while charging the same prices."
Cons: "Even the comfort seats are crammed together too close. One can barely move. Dreadful"
Pros: "Getting offered a stipend to change flights - getting my preferred rental car"
Cons: "A direct flight"
Cons: "They were short 1 flight attendant, delayed us for 3 hours"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Checking in was easy, the overall flight was quiet and quick and on time"

Cons: "Delta delayed us SEVEN times and I type this as we are rounding our 30th minute waiting to get off the plane at Logan."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "The leg room in comfort+ was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like how the cabin temperature was freezing cold. My wife and I were wearing long pants and sweaters and were still freezing. We asked the flight attendants twice for blankets and each time they said no. I know they had extra blankets but for some reason they did not give us one. I thought that sitting in comfort+ they'd at least give us the comfort of a blanket but I guess not... Oh well."
Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"
Pros: "I have always known of airlines to offer preboarding to those military members in uniform or on official orders. Delta took it one step further and allows prior service members to board also."
Pros: "The free TV was nice."
Cons: "A tiny bag of pretzels is a stingy snack. Aeromexico gave us a croissant with two pieces of cheese,applesauce and a square of chocolate."
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Cons: "Haven't left yet!!!"
Cons: "4+ total hour delay"
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Cons: "The flight is delayed 3.5 hours."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."
Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"
Pros: "Nothing about it was good. They made us Americans feel so unwanted."
Cons: "The staff was rude"
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."
Pros: "Love Delta...plenty of legroom. Nearly always on time"
Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"
Pros: "everthing went well"
Pros: "Great service. On time flight."
Cons: "I reserved my ticket through Kayak.com. They auto populated my name and added my maiden name. Because that did not match my passport I was charged $50 at the counter to make the name change. Additionally this took a very long time and we almost missed our flight. I am currently fighting with the airline to get reimbursed."
Pros: "Comfortable-love the 2 seats!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The staff was helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a crew member no show and eventually cancelled. I was unable to go to Iowa to see my family."
Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and took great care of us. The food was surprisingly good and our seats were comfortable. It was worth upgrading to Premium for the extra legroom and other little perks."
Cons: "I really can’t think of a bad part...the customer service at check in was so easy; our checked bags were automatically transferred in Calgary, the crew was very friendly, food was good as was the wine and beer."
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Cons: "Dinner service on the Calgary-London flight started very late and the cabin lights weren’t dimmed for several hours on this night flight."
Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"
Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
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: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"
Pros: "Great staff. Overall good considering the cheap flight."
Cons: "No free meal, the pizza ordered was terrible. No tv, only iPads for rent."
Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers at both the Mazatlan end and Calgary were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"
Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."
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: "Folks are nice.."
Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."
Pros: "Always friendly and helpful...great to see and experience!"
Cons: "Computers down delayed checkin. Items stolen from checked bags. Flight delayed. Lost bag on a flight with no transfers."
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"
Pros: "Easy low volume airport palm desert"
Cons: "I am a tall person and the seating is just too darn close with absolutely no leg room for a tall person to fit comfortably in the seat. In fact, I could not even get the tray/table to come down level because my knees were too high and there was not enough distance between myself and the passenger seat in front of me to allow the tray table to come down completely and sit flat."
Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "Normal flight"
Pros: "It wasn't full and there was an open seat beside me"
Pros: "Always great crew members!"
Cons: "Power outage in Kamloops, causing a little boarding and seating issues, crew handled it well!"
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew pleasant and polite. Only complaint is being charged extras for baggage. I suffer from a handicap/ injury and as a result do not like to carry luggage on to the flight as it causes me issues. It is frustrating to buy a ticket and always have to pay an added fee when I get there. I would pay more or pick another airline if baggage was included for me."
Cons: "Pay for check baggage. Because of a handicap I prefer to not carry baggage onto the flight. See above."
Pros: "Direct flight and was cost effecient"
Cons: "Gate construction made it hard to find where to go"
Pros: "Crew was great! I've decided on flights over 5 hours, upgrading as much as you can is important."
Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"
Pros: "Roast beef sandwich was great"
Cons: "Just because the crew is having a bad day they shouldn't take it out on the customer"
Cons: "Did not get TSN for the entire flight, even after we entered Canadian airspace."
Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"
Cons: "We were 3 hours late taking of so I missed my connecting flight. The staff are summer staff so know how to do very little. We got poor advice on changing flights, interminable slow to hey through to west jet themselves. The manager at the airport hid away until 15 minutes before boarding the late flight when he was due to come out with food vouchers, the catch, you had to leave and go back out through security to use them. Seriously, who would do that 15 minutes before boarding? And then my bag didn't arrive. ..."
Pros: "I like the staff and services"
Cons: "It's all I like west jet"
Cons: "There was no entertainment. But wifi was available if that is what you consider entertainment."
Pros: "Love it. Friendly and nice. Thank for making this flight rock!"
Pros: "Great staff. Smooth flight. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Is any plane seat comfortable??? Need better ergonomics for knees and necks!"
Pros: "Staff were amazing. Friendly and helpful, having the TV's made the flight go by quickly. I don't fly well, I often get sick and claustrophobic so having that distraction was awesome"
Cons: ".nothing!! It was fabulous!!"
Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "No place to charge phone on any flights"
Cons: "Seating shoulder to shoulder with other passengers."
Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."
Pros: "After several eye rolls, I was offered taxi vouchers to and from our hotel - I had several bags and 3 sleeping children and i needed help getting to and from the hotel, more than what would have been offered with the shuttle service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no indication of the delays from the crew. I was emailed that we would be having supper on the flight - but myself and my 3 kids were told there were not enough meals and we were unable to eat anything other than some small snack items. We missed our connecting flight and given the late hour I would have appreciated some extra help with my 3 (sleeping) children exiting the plane - I asked for help but none was given."
Pros: "I was very disappointed to find out that wifi was not on my flight. The staff on the plane was very robotic. Came across as miserable"
Pros: "The crew, who were not West Jet crew members as we had to take another airline's plane, were very attentive and the food was good."
Cons: "The Plus seats were worse than the West Jet outbound flight. Plane was older, the seats hardly reclined (which is why I originally paid for a plus seat) and the plane was not cleaned well. I went to use the washroom before take-off and it was not cleaned properly and my tray table had food stains on it."
Pros: "The Consistency!"
Cons: "Location of the gates in Charlotte are always so far away from one another!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "I sat in row 8, a main cabin extra row, just behind first class. The MCE seats are supposed to have a few extra inches but I actually had less room than if I sat in regular economy. The reason is because the wall behind first class comes straight down and prevents you from fully extending your feet. Newer layouts have a small cut out or stop the wall short of the floor so you can fully extend you legs."
Pros: "Nothing Not happy with the airline Canceled this reservation less than a week after I booked it Would not refund me"
Cons: "Stewardess forgot to give me my coffee"
Pros: "The plane didn’t crash"
Cons: "The air smelled like a dirty diaper, seats are over priced for the very little improvement over basic economy"
Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seats. It was a fairly smooth ride."
Pros: "The crew was good in first but ooor in baxk"
Cons: "More room for bags"
Cons: "Another American Airlines delay"
Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. And the flight was late."
Cons: "The plane was so small no roller bags could be accommodated. All bags were gate checked. Retrieving all those bags while on the jetway was difficult"
Cons: "No wifi no movie."
Pros: "I hated the whole experience"
Cons: "I’ve never flown American Airlines and the flight was on time."
Cons: "Check in at originating and connecting flight very difficult. American Airlines could not find reservation on British Airways system. Was asked multiple times if I truly was booked on the flight. Four+ hour delay due to mechanical issues, delayed by union issues."
Pros: "Think I said this before. Up graded to 1st class because the flight to Miami was do horrible."
Pros: "Much better flight in 1st class than in cattle car. Not happy about the extra cost just so not to be misrtsble."
Pros: "Not happy having to spend the extra money to fly 1st class because the flight from Phoenix was so terrible."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs - but no fault of the airline."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "To many delays."
Pros: "I was in first class thanks to an upgrade. The flight attendant was very nice. But the amenities are total garbage - no seatback in-flight entertainment, no power."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment except on your own device. No power, ensuring your device will die on a long flight. The old US Airways fleet from the Northeast is awful."
Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Cons: "Too many delays that made me miss the original time I was to catch my connecting flight. Missed my appointment in Spain as a result..."
Pros: "On time. Quick boarding."
Cons: "The delay out of Charlotte but the staff did a great job keeping us informed and boarding as quick as possible."
Pros: "I got there on time and they didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "The planes are too cramped, costs are too high, staff just love pointing out a carry on isn't a carry on even though it's sold as one and fits in every other airline's definition of one. Boarding process is ridiculous."
Pros: "Flight was delayed then cancelled. No explanation, apologies, or provision for accommodation was made or offered!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seats were comfortable, the lav was large enough to turn around in, and we arrived in plenty of time to catch our train out of Frankfurt."
Cons: "The movie selection didn't have anything interesting."
Pros: "It was a small plane so the crew pulled larger totes and packed them separately. It worked very efficiently given the circumstances."
Cons: "Very tight quarters, but ok for short flight"
Pros: "excellent flight. on time and no issues"
Pros: "Entertainment, seating room"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. It was Christmas so the flight was not full."
Cons: "It was a short flight, so it was fine."
Pros: "On-time arrival; competent crew"
Cons: "Nothing; the flight was OK."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "I am not comfortable flying so for me, flying makes me nervous"

Pros: "it was ok"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat but had to sit in different spot. Set in isle seat"
Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."
Cons: "Had to wait for crew delayed by weather. No gate when we got to SMF. Luggage took way too long to come off. Lots of turbulence - not your fault - but I HATE it."
Cons: "The sound did not work in my assigned seat. I could not watch any movies or partipate in any games."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."
Pros: "no problems."
Pros: "Great team of flight crew members but boy it will be a long time before I want to travel through London Heathrow again."
Pros: "We were able to board first. The round trip flight was overall amazing. American Airlines is awesome when it comes to active duty flying. When try let him board early and took his luggage they also did the same for me as his wife and it was a great experience to know they care for both of us."
Cons: "I didn't like the lady we sat next to! But you can't help that. So you all did amazing!"
Pros: "Either BA or American Airlines didn't know that We got switched by BA TO AN EARLIER FLIGHT TO JFK!. When we arrived in PIT we almost missed our flight to JFK. The American desk agent at check in had to walk us thru security because of this. OTHERWISE EVERYTHING ELSE WAS OK."

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: "I got from point A to point B"
Cons: "I lost over a day of my trip because a flight was cancelled and wasted 6 hours trying to rebook with no help from the staff, who were extremely rude. Everyone on the canceled flight had to be aggressive at getting a new flight booked because there was no help. Every time you asked an associate from Aur Canada for help, the passed the problem off not taking any responsibility. If your name is on my ticket, then it's your responsibility. Worst experience traveling by far. Also lost over a day of my expensive trip that I've been waiting to go on for awhile and saved my money for a year. I lost hundreds of dollars in events and hotels. Avoid Air Canada if possible"
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a disorganized and took over an hour. There was a mix of people getting their passports checked and boarding. They never called for general boarding, just eventually started accepting people who got impatient. The entertainment options were the worst I've seen on an international flight in a while."
Cons: "I had my checked baggage held up in Calgary for one day. Then on the way back it was held up again in Calgary. This time it took 6 days,and no one could tell me where it was. It will be my first and last Air Canada flight."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Surprised at the quality of the vegan meal. It was roomy enough for coach economy travel.Good variety of in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Wish they would of had an option to purchase something to eat also."
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: "Staff were very nice"
Cons: "2 out of 4 of my meals were incorrect. I had asked for vegan meals and 2 of them were clearly not vegan."

Cons: "The screen was not responding well"
Cons: "Engine noise unbearably loud French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Cons: "Without notice, flight was delayed more than 3 hours."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive when I did. I had to spend several hundred dollars on cloths for me and my niece so that we had what we needed for the two days it took to get our bags."
Cons: "10:30am flight delayed for three hours. They moved my flight to 7:30am and no one told me. Someone claims they did not have my email address. The thing is, I received at least three emails prior to the flight from AirCanada, one was my itinery. So whoever couldn't find my email address must be looking on another planet or something."
Pros: "Quick non stop flight from Vancouver to Calgary. Has to change my flight last minute and wasn't charged for doing that. That on its own was a relief and great surprise."
Cons: "The plan was hot - no AC it was hard to sit through. The snacks on Air Canada flights get worse and worse every year. Pay more get less."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Attendant told us to come back tomorrow and we could get on the same flights just a day later. Really?? not that stupid. Had problems getting a room overnight - management said we weren't in the system. Gentleman at air canada desk very rude - even told his partner in front of us he couldn't stand this part of his job."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Cons: "The frustrating portion was the airline's lack of desire to fix our problems. The first flight was late because of mechanical issues and then Air Canada was not at all forthcoming in getting us rebooked on the next flight. Something that should have been quite simple involved me having to fight with workers just to get put on a new flight -- nobody wanted to actually do the work."
Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Cons: "Once my flight was delayed, it caused much confusion, missed connections, and rerouting"
Cons: "My 10:10 flight got cancelled snd AC put us on an earlier flight so that my layover was over 6 hours in Toronto to catch my flight to Tokyo Haneda. That was very painful."
Cons: "Over 1 hour waiting on phone and disconnected. Terrible. Check-in people didn't even say one single word of apology. they suggested call Air Canada."
Pros: "It was quick and easy and saved me a hour drive!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and very attentative. There weren't many options on the menu to eat, but the item I had was delicious. (Roast beef and pickle on rye bread) I like that you have the touch screen entertainment options. Passes time on plane, and I get to watch a movie I haven't watched. Great feature."
Cons: "This one might be on the airport, but my ticket said you were at gate D34, and it ended up being on D36. There were many people confused, so I know I was t the only one. The person next to me was oversized, anyway to make the seats a bit bigger?"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"
Pros: "good take off, land off"
Cons: "charge for checked baggage"
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."
Pros: "Loaded quickly,"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable for a long flight. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The food was good considering the air fare. The entertainment was great compared to other airlines that flight alternative routes to the same location. Compared to my other experiences with international flights this is one of the best ones overall."
Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"
Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."
Pros: "Boarding and loading of the plane was fine until the generator didn't want to start."
Cons: "generator broken, waited/delayed IN plane 1.5hr+, no snacks or gift certificate given. Entertainment system kept restarting as a result."
Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"
Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"
Pros: "All aspects of the actual flight were good. The flight attendants were pleasant and professional and the food choices were good."
Cons: "The flight we had booked was cancelled. Were were rebooked on a different flight - the time was good as it got us home when we were supposed to arrive. The changed flight involved an additional transfer, which was stressful because of tight timeline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "this was the first leg to Phx. Offering a seat sale, then cancelling the flight, and arbitrarily rerouting us on a milk run! After calls to AC was able to make more acceptable arrangements, with their code share United. Then United did cancelled our flight the night before and rerouted us. Bottom line, we choose AC because of the seat sale and overall time of our travel. I will likely avoid using AC in the future even if I have to pay more!"
Pros: "Boarding was awesome, arrival was awesome. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, ie TV, as I did not have an iphone to download their app. We were offered a drink, no snack."
