Pros: "Nice snacks"

Cons: "Limited options of entertainment for a 10.5 hour flight. I was happy that I downloaded a lot of content on my devices before my trip. Everything on the flight had a purchase option but got rather spendy to get headphones, entertainment, additional food & drink."

Pros: "The dessert was good. The movie/TV selection was good."
Cons: "Seats are EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE. Staff was indifferent."

Cons: "We had to change seats due to the audio functions not working for both of us. In addition, my wife’s seat the recliner didn’t work. Fortunately there two seats behind us. We changed then things are working. Staff was good, trying very hard to help."

Pros: "The snack was a whole sandwich that was quite tasty and in my opinion far better than the two meals I was served on my US to Europe flight on Condor. The staff were very kind, accommodating and served us damp linens to wipe our hands with before eating, which I did not receive on the Condor flight."

Pros: "I just really like the customer experience with Alaska. I dislike flying, but Alaska makes things as painless as possible."
Cons: "I don't think anything could've been better, it's not possible to be comfortable in coach, but we all already know that."

Pros: "Comfortable roomy seats"
Cons: "We had to wait 30 minutes after landing before we could exit the plane."

Pros: "The flight, airplane, staff onboard were all very good. However..."
Cons: "Ground logistics, poor relationship Hong Kong Air, Vancouver/ SFO Airports, Alaska Airlines made transfor overhead time/efforts and luggage handling a problem. (1) flight outbound computer problem (2) transfer Canada/US problem (3) Lost luggage on return flight + time delays 90 minutes for luggage"

Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."

Pros: "Very smooth flight Great tv choices!"

Cons: "Layover time not adequate in Seattle & Heathrow"

Pros: "Crew very professional. Flight went smooth from start to finish. Traveling East the winds got us in almost an hour early."

Pros: "Everything was smoothe from the time I got to the airport from check in to boarding. Flight was short and pilot warned us about a possible bit of rough air before we ever took off."
Cons: "Seats are getting smaller and smaller while prices are growing exponentially. These seats are even smaller than United flights, and they had next to no padding."

Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, relaxing flight."
Cons: "Headphones wouldn't work, screen didn't work for movies / tv."

Pros: "Organized, friendly."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I always love Alaska air: super friendly people, free drinks, good snacks, comfy and typically on time and smooth"
Cons: "This was the first time I've had a delayed flight on Alaska. They changed our gate and flight multiple times and our luggage ended up not with us, which has been a big inconvenience 2 days into our honeymoon."

Pros: "A short flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "The food was way overpriced, and the crew did not let you know, nor did they ask if you wanted anything to eat. Also the seating was very cramped! I get more leg room in small jets, compared to a 767"

Pros: "For 24+hrs of traveling, it was quite comfortable. The staff was efficient and professional."

Pros: "The extra seat next to me."
Cons: "The fact that my baggage got left in Portland."

Pros: "normal."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Smooth quick flight, seats roomy, crew very nice"
Cons: "When we got in we had to on a already hot plane on the runway for 40 mins. It's was very incomfortable and I missed my airporter so had to get one a hour later getting me home at 11:30. We were on the ground at 7:40 and I didn't get on airporter until 9:30! Also, the gogoinflight didn't work."

Pros: "Fast, efficient boarding and managed carry-on space well when selfish dude tried to put 8 bags up for his 4 family members."
Cons: "Food was expensive and just OK."

Pros: "Quick boarding process. Plenty of leg room. Kind team aboard plane."
Cons: "Delayed leaving but made up for it in the air. Terrible smell on the plane for the duration of flight."

Pros: "I liked that a pillow and blanket was provided- but the temperature on the plane was way too hot to use them"
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was way too hot"

Pros: "using passport as my ID :)"

Pros: "While flying to Portland from Maui, our next flight was cancelled. No one notified us of this while on the plane or as we exited the plane. My mom found out while I was in the bathroom. She talked to the person at the gate we had just arrived at. She told us we were rerouted to a better flight and told us to go to a specific gate. When we arrived at the gate, Rainy (your employee) explained the situation again calmly, printed our boarding passes, told us we had an hour to catch a bite and worked on seating us together on the plane (I am traveling with a child). When we came back to the gate to board, she had taken care of our seating issue and was very nice. If you are going to cancel a flight on a customer, this is exactly how it should be handled. Better flight, better time, calm and helpful staff. This was the most enjoyable flight of our trip. Nice size plane and great staff. Just maybe need to notify the on board stewardess, she doesn't need to project or yell to be heard for the courtesy of those who have been traveling all night."
Cons: "Knowing that we got very little rest on the overnight flight, I was looking forward to a good nap on this flight. I was getting it until the airline assistant decided to have a very loud, very long conversation with a passenger. I could barely hear the passenger, but the employee was speaking as if on stage at an ampitheater! I know where she use to work, how she became a stewardess, how many cities she has worked from, how many days she has off, and again how many cities she has been to, AT VERY LOUD LEVELS!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. Everything was on time."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"

Pros: "Staff, anenities, service, smooth flight and landing"

Pros: "Up graded to business and it made all the difference in the world. I was not looking forward to the trip and thoroughly enjoyed it."

Pros: "The flight to Seattle was seriously delayed but I was able to make my connecting flight to DC."
Cons: "The crew was not very good at updating the worried customers about their connecting flight status considering that there was a 55 minute delay. I was the last person to board and I made it to the gate in the nick of time. It was really stressful. On my way to PDX I used SW and I had a connecting flight in Denver. However the pilot was very good about giving us an update and assuring that we will get there on time. I felt reassured that SW cared for its passengers and was trying to alleviate our stress."

Pros: "I have become a major fan of Alaska Airlines. Check In is so easy, the attendants are friendly, the food is worth purchasing (although a bit too spicy for me), the choices of flight times is impressive. I have flown with Alaska three times in the past year and every flight was booked solid. Must be lots of others who feel the same way I do."

Pros: "On time departure. Very friendly flight attendants. Anther SMOOTH landing. Good pilots."
Cons: "Loud sound system."

Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "The fact that I was promised a flight @8:55 and didn't leave @ that time but the original flight @7:55 and wasn't informed about it . Or anything until after it left . And my bags went with the flight to Guadalajara and was a big mess. Half of my stuff was missing from both bags !!!!"

Pros: "Clean new planes with keen crew and service"
Cons: "Sitting in back of plane - but that's on me for scheduling a flight last minute"

Pros: "The alska airlines flight was short as it was to LAX . Even still it was a nice flight."

Pros: "Up & down in 45 minutes."

Pros: "All Alaska personnel were friendly. I've flown Alaska many times before. This time was especially enjoyable."

Pros: "The service ,everything !"

Cons: "Our suitcases got lost"

Pros: "Everything... except..."
Cons: "This is so sad, but there was no turning back once I traveled on an Alaska flight that had outlets at each seat!! Electrical outlets were only available for first class :( I wish all the planes had it so I can rely on them to keep me entertained without my battery dying 1.5 hours into a flight!"

Pros: "Good landing, good boarding, smooth flight"
Cons: "The seats are so crowded now I can barely fit into them, and I am a thin guy of just over six feet tall. I get so cramped in that it gives me muscle cramps over the period of the flight."

Pros: "Window seat; frequency of being offered items"
Cons: "Person in seat next to me basically was touching me the entire flight"

Cons: "Since it was all short hops there was no food involved. Other then food, or lack of, lol, it was all very pleasant."

Pros: "The service was excellent flight was good and on time"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of"

Pros: "Quiet plane. Crew was genuine, and interested. Trip was on time. These simple services, done with a smile exceeded my expectations, which is sad but deeply appreciated."
Cons: "Seats are too small. I am 6'6" and there is not enough legroom. I don't like paying extra for baggage, and pretzels are not food."

Pros: "Crew members, ease of boarding, Alaska App."
Cons: "Plane is small and very noisy. Hard to hear on your own device, or to take a nap etc. Small seats, tight fit - rubbing elbows with the person sitting next to you."

Pros: "The flight wasn't full and the seats were larger than the new normal. It wasn't on Alaskan airlines but was a different company who works with Alaskan. I can't remember the name though. It started with a as well."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Went very smoothly. Very comfortable."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Cons: "On time flight"

Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "Stop charging for checked bags"

Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."

Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."

Cons: "Seats hardly recline. Very difficult to sleep in this red eye flight."

Pros: "Seat 4 A. The flight attendant working first class was very attent"

Cons: "Nothing my timing was a bit off it all worked out well"

Pros: "In flight service was fast and well organized. The dinner was very good. Flight was turbulent free and no isues."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Hot in the plane and the landing was uncomfortable"

Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."

Cons: "Aww. The movie I wanted to watch wouldn’t play.."

Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Seats were horrible, we all booked together and a bunch of my group got bumped to a different flight."

Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "The entertainment consul for one of our seats kept going out and had to be restarted 4 times. It still didn’t work properly but we gave up trying to get it fixed."

Pros: "The crew members were excellent and efficient. Europe was fabulous."
Cons: "9+ hours in the air is never fun when you're in economy class: humans have gotten bigger as airline seats grow smaller."

Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "Flight was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic after a while because guy in seat next to me was rather large and spilling into my seat"

Cons: "I was placed on an earlier flight as soon as I arrived at the Portland airport. The flight was full, there was no room for my bag in the overhead bins. The bag was checked, not to just Seattle but all the way to Venice. Well, surprise, surprise, the bag was lost on the way to Venice. KLM does not allow enough time in Amsterdam for luggage to make a connecting flight."

Pros: "Movies selection were good, snacks were pretty good"
Cons: "Why make someone pay for an upgraded seat that doesn’t recline? Terrible. Also delayed the flight by an hour, no explanation, and no idea if connections would be made or not. Had to run to my connection and they almost didn’t let me on. Smh"

Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."

Pros: "Every Delta employee that we encountered was professional and pleasant"

Pros: "Freemovies"
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "Excellent Service."

Pros: "The entertainment was really good and the service was excellent. Flight attendants were great. Enjoyed my complimentary beverage and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "It was hard to understand what zone was boarding. Hard to hear and understand made It impossible. And the plane seemed smaller, seats were very close to one another, and it was difficult to get comfortable. I'm not big either."

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."

Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"

Pros: "none of it"
Cons: "It was Terrible I will never do it again"

Cons: "Condition of the airplane"

Pros: "in economy class"
Cons: "very hard seats with not enough legroom."

Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."

Pros: "fast efficient and directions are pretty clear tons of delicious food available at PDX to bring plane was comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "long lines through security"

Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seating has gotten WAY too tight. Will not do that again ... discomfort, inability to even stretch a little bit caused painful nerve flare?"

Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."

Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"

Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."

Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."

Pros: "Kindness and politeness, on time lots of explaining"
Cons: "Beyond seat space all was perfect"

Pros: "No problems curling up against the bulkhead and going to sleep. Crew was very considerate about not broadcasting messages to awaken travelers during this overnight flight."
Cons: "Was a bit warm but in a full plane what can you expect?"

Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."

Cons: "Snacks if possible"

Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"

Pros: "I trusted Delta to take of my clients; Delta usually did. Rather, the employees of Delta did. Now when I travel, I prefer Delta (when they aren't too much more economically). Let me change that to I used to prefer Delta, because the times, they are achanging. My home airport is Atlanta, I'm usually traveling to Seattle or Portland; Delta is king in those routes. There's more flight time options, and the entertainment available is better."
Cons: "Here's where the picky comes in. I downloaded the 'Go Go" wifi app beforehand. When I tried to connect I received a message that it wasn't available on my routes. Why couldn't they tell me that it might not work on my routes before they took my money? Further, why wasn't it available? It's not like I was going on a multi city/country trip, this was Atlanta to Portland non-stop. Then there's the 'Premier Seating". I opted for it on my outbound flight and received TSA Pre Check. I didn't buy the seating coming back; I did not receive TSA Pre Check. Coincidence? My fare was more than Alaska Airlines was offering it for, I paid for the wifi that didn't work, and in order to avoid the back of the plane, you must pay. So, I guess I'll be going to Alaska Airlines. They don't have as many flights, but I don't feel dinged for more money every time I turn around."

Pros: "everthing went well"

Pros: "Long flight but smooth despite delays"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hours."

Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"

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...."

Pros: "westjet connect to watch a tv show or the news or something"

Pros: "Friendly people!"

Cons: "They automatically gave me the window seat"

Cons: "Flight delayed which led to our rental car gone"

Pros: "Nothing at all. Boarding time changed 3times. Nothing nothing nothing good."
Cons: "Boarding time changed 3 times. 2 hours later than original schedule. Terrible pilot went around city for no reason. Terrified and poor landing skill. I've never had experience like this. Now i only have 3 hours sleep before work."

Pros: "Great pilots, helpful & friendly crew. Appreciate WestJet humour. Smooth fast ride."
Cons: "Plane could use a good cleaning. Windows and table smudged and dirty."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "all the service was very good to us"

Pros: "Everything was excelente very nice personal."

Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"

Cons: "4 hour flight at dinner time. No food. What were they thinking? They ran out of sandwiches after the first row of passengers. Why even bother with menus when there is no food to support?"

Pros: "Check in was fast, on time, landed early, entertainment worked"

Pros: "We did not have to wait long in Calgary after landing and arriving at our luggage carousel. Our two bags were not only first off the belt but side-by-side and we were away in no time-- that never happens!"

Pros: "Good helpful crew. Reasonably sane boardingon a full d flight."

Pros: "The plane had free access behind every seat to charge devices and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Bag fees and the process to check in bags was long even though we had checked in the day before."

Pros: "How extremely nice the flight attendants were. They went above and beyond their scope of practice to ensure each person on the flight, felt as comfortable as possible. Thx #Nancy and #Heather"

Pros: "Flight was great. Calgary customs was awful. The lines were extremely long. We boarded our plane at 9:50 and departure was at 10."
Cons: "Customs at Calgary Canada was terribly slow. Almost missed our plane."

Pros: "Our choice to pay the upgrade to Plus seating was WELL worth the cost. My husband and I had never flown 'first class' before and thought on this almost 9 hour flight we would give it a try. Wow! Seat comfort was fantastic. Service was wonderful. Food was great. We were made to feel like royalty."

Pros: "flight on time"

Pros: "Awesome crew, chill experience !"

Pros: "A few days before our flight to Halifax which was originally scheduled with a stop over in Toronto, we received an email from Westjet that they were putting us on the direct flight. This enabled us to avoid the Toronto bottleneck and get to our destination on time. Thank you Westjet."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"

Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in is brutal. Ruins then entire experience."

Pros: "On time ...."
Cons: "West Jet satellite tv not working ..."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful cabin staff"
Cons: "In flight entertainment worked only intermittently"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No notification of 2 hour delay. Missed connection with 2 wrong rebooking on departed flight. No ticket to clear customs and no Air Canada help to rebook correctly."

Pros: "movies"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."

Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."

Pros: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Cons: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."

Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"

Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."

Cons: "I booked this flight a couple months ago to find no seat assignment which should be booked at Chechen but was not. Then I was given the back seat against the wall which does not recline. There were standby people on the flight who got much better seating than I. I seemed to get the last consideration. I am treated much better on other airlines with much less early booking. also later after take of it was made known to me there were empty seats further up in the cabin. When I email Air Canada they said they would get back to me within 30 days about my concerns."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The trip took about 48 hours. After a cancelled flight I got no hotel discount. Several flights were delayed or cancelled and in the end I ended up just going to a city 3 hours from where I live and renting a car to drive home. My luggage still hasn't arrived. This was the worst, most stressful travel experience of my life."

Pros: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"

Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."

Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."

Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."

Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"

Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."

Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"

Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"

Pros: "but only a few minutes late arriving ..."
Cons: "Boarded on time then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for the water truck."

Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."

Pros: "Crew was great!! Smooth landing!!"

Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"

Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"

Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."

Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Great crew and good wine!"

Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."

Pros: "Great service, on-time flight."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Glad for this new route. Will make Europe easier to access from PDX."

Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."

Pros: "Most things where fine. Slight delay in boarding but still made our connection."
Cons: "Tried to signal stewards for another beverage but got no response. Lack of customer service."

Pros: "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."

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."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"

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: "Flights were all on time. Crew was lovely."
Cons: "The usual: hard to get in and out to go to bathroom. I would have liked to sit in emergency row as I noticed few people were in those seats but I didn't know how to have secured those seats so I just sat where I was assigned."

Pros: "Fast. Easy. Gave me free seat with more room"
Cons: "Such a tiny plane.... crowded. Made you pay for wifi."

Pros: "Crew was fine, very friendly"
Cons: "Small sear back pockets, having to pay extra to take a carryon onboard!"

Cons: "Both flights were late, seriously late."

Pros: "the soda water was good."
Cons: "It was late, as almost all United flights are. sad."

Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"

Cons: "Plane departed 2 hrs late,taxied 40 min in San Fransisco for lack of access to gate"

Cons: "The entertainment selections were awful for such a long flight. Also there should be meals provided for such a lengthy flight."

Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."

Pros: "I missed the gotdamn flight"
Cons: "I missed"

Pros: "PenAir computer systems were down in Denver, so flight was about 30 minutes late. Crew was good tho."

Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."

Pros: "The fact that we made it alive."
Cons: "Everything else. Take a sleeping pill an hour before the flight and sleep as soon as you sit down. Or else you will need a miracle to survive the boredom of the flight."

Pros: "It was a new plane ...but the same old rules..."

Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."

Cons: "Terrible uncaring old waitresses overweight, no room for luggage no room for even walk in the plane, kept asking to turn off devices when it is well known devices don't cause any problem. No free internet. Old tired planes, terrible third world airline."

Pros: "Efficient boarding, smooth flight"
Cons: "Seat was hard and uncomfortable, air was stuffy, little fan wasn't blowing enough"

Pros: "Didn't crash"
Cons: "Get my to my destination on time. I missed my connection and will be 5 hours late to my destination, missing most of Father's Day"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The leg room & the service"

Cons: "Paying $25 to check a bag each way just to be able to do early check in on the app. I only had a carry on. Total scam. Shady AF. Also the United entertainment in the app does not work with Bluetooth headphones on an iPhone."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived early! Yeah"
Cons: "They could have announced which carousel our luggage would be found."

Pros: "At least it wasn't the next day?"
Cons: "I booked A flight from in Oregon to Tucson Arizona but the layover in San Francisco . The flight from Oregon to California was delayed by an hour and a half which caused me to misconnect. United didn't offer me anything, not even a sorry. Terrible service."

Pros: "It was spacious."
Cons: "No free Wi-Fi."

Pros: "WIFI allowed access to imessage"
Cons: ""Free" movies and TV didn't work"

Pros: "Flight was fine and flight attendants were nice. Employees at the gate were less than helpful."
Cons: "United booked too many flights when they knew the destination was limiting arrivals. This delayed our flight by 3 hours. Communication to the travelers was poor and misleading."

Cons: "Multiple delays"

Pros: "Flight was great"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No Free baggage no free food"

Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."

Cons: "Neither my fiancée nor I were particularly fond of the inflight sauna. I had try dry my sweat soaked shirt in the bathroom while waiting to make my connection. If the flight had been any longer I would have opened the door to let a breeze in."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "United changed my 10 am reservation to 6:40 which meant, in addition to getting up at 4 am, missing a great free breakfast at my hotel, that I had to spend $55 on a cab rather than take public transportation to the airport. Further more, the 4+ hour layover at Newark (horrible terminal) led to 6+ hours. Arrived home at the end of an 18 hour day barely functioning."

Pros: "Friendly, comfortable service"

Cons: "Two hour delay because of scheduled runway maintenance in sfo. If it's scheduled, then why didn't United plan around that"

Cons: "Plane was hot no air and super uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew kept us informed of the delays"
Cons: "Sitting in the plane on the runway for an hour"

Pros: "The plane was new and clean"
Cons: "The new seats where not very comfortable one crew member was very nice the other two were curt when dealing with the passengers or moving the cart up and down the isle."

Cons: "Leg room is very limited."

Pros: "The sunrise"
Cons: "I was on the wrong side of the plane!"

Pros: "Iad to Boston on board attendants"
Cons: "Flight timing excellent"

Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Shortest route, friendly staff."

Pros: "Personable crew."
Cons: "Middle seat"

Cons: "Delays, comfort, and rudeness of the flight attendant. It was just a horrible experience all around!"

Pros: "Efficient crew"

Cons: "They made me get off the plane because I could have my lotion on the plane and wanted to check for anything else"

Pros: "my first time flying with United was exceptional. it is an overall professional airline. from on time seating to a more luxurious cabin my flight from Portland to San Francisco could not have gone better."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Very unhappy employees. I work at Nordstrom so maybe my expectations are a bit high when it comes to customer service, but if I owned united airlines I would be ashamed of the way United employees treat people. I paid an extra 300 than I had to to get to Hartford Connecticut at the time I chose when purchasing the ticket. Every plane was delayed. EVERY FLIGHT by at least an hour. I missed my connections and was rebooked twice. the average joe customer service lines were ridiculous with the separate priority line having first dibs. The first customer service man I met with was helpful and kind. With the exception of that man and one flight attendant on my trip back to Portland, every employee was indifferent, condescending and in some cases, actually mean. I say that seriously! (I can't believe it either). I am not a difficult person to get along with and I never showed upset despite the many mishaps I encountered on this trip. Customer service is so important and could have made up for the obvious poor planning and lack of communication by which united airlines functions. Unfortunately, I would rather fly any other airline if given the choice after this trip. Even spirit (and let me tell you, I've only flown spirit once and there is a good reason for that). So disappointing. I am upset over my experience and again, will avoid this airline at all costs in the future whenever possible."
Cons: "Above."
