Crew were not helpful to the point of being rude. Too many delays and issues for such a short flight. Swiss Air is good in Europe but not in the Caribbean.
No room between seats. Seat arms do not lift, which would allow more space if needed.
Pros: "The flight was on time and fairly clean."
Cons: "The seats are so crowded and we were jammed in like sardines. There was insufficient ventilation and it was too warm and stuffy. Not comfortable."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "The AC was working well during the flight. Food was so much better than United and crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The seats in economy class are horrible, I had to get up every hour for a short stretch. The entertainment system remote control was very sticky, quite disgusting. Good think I carried some disinfecting wipes."
Cons: "There was a major delay - we never were told why and no one apologized. It was so stressful to make my connection."
Pros: "Excellent food and crew"
Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."
Cons: "Too hot. Too late. Staff could have been more accommodating. Online checkin was impossible."

Pros: "always enjoying my swiss flights. Thanks guys good job"

Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "Flight itself was good, comfortable, staff were professional"
Pros: "Was a very quick flight."
Cons: "This plane was better."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, on time, excellent flight"
Cons: "Cramped, the touch screen was not very responsive, the snack at midnight would be better if it were breakfast food-"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "insufficient AC during boarding endlessly screaming baby"
Pros: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."
Pros: "Has been 6 days and my luggage is still lost. Doubt I will see it again. It did have a nice luggage tag on it with all the info needed to track me down."
Pros: "Our of the 4 females I interacted with only Miishiie was helpful. The movies are a good selection. They were on time."
Cons: "I'm 6'2 and black. I asked if I could pay to upgrade to business class after viewing coach. They lied and said it was full when I could see empty seats. They bumped up a white female for free 3 hours later."
Pros: "Aircraft clean, staff friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Lighting in aircraft is too bright Food offers by swiss in economy is terrible. My company di a not support business class travel"
Pros: "Good service... good food....on time. I will fly Swiss again."

Cons: "The boarding process was messy, couldn't tell economy from business lines, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "When I booked the flight I thought it was El Al so I did not order kosher food (as all El Al food is kosher). I only found out later that it was Swiss Air and I was unable to get a kosher meal."
Pros: "In general it was perfect. Chocolate from Suiss at the end of the flight is just amazing!"
Cons: "Because it was a long flight, we would have liked to see a bit more the staff passing around slowly, so we could have asked for water in the night. The seats were not as incredible than the first flight from Spain to Zurich."
Pros: "Swiss Air was the best airline ever!"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful with getting me "something" to eat since I did not receive a "Vegan" meal as I had ordered when I bought the flight... The meal I originally was given was included milk and cheese ingredients and after explaining what vegan actually was they did their best to help my situation. My first flight with Swiss to Switzerland included the correct "vegan" meal do I can't understand how this mistake was made by Swiss on the return flight?"
Cons: "I did not receive a "vegan" meal as ordered originally and though they were very helpful they should all be better educated regarding the differences between "Vegan", Vegetsrian, Lacto-Ovo, etc... Since I was embarrassed as I had to keep rejecting the food they gave me until I educated them on the basics of what Vegan food is... They were very helpful throughout."
Pros: "The movie selection was good and I found a new series to watch. The food was good. Liked the cheese and chocolate."
Cons: "Wish I had more leg room. The long flights cause fluid build up in my legs which was very uncomfortable for eight hours."
Pros: "Real silverware. Great crew presence. Ice Cream and chocolate."
Pros: "So far so good"
Cons: "So good"
Pros: "I got business class upgrade, so everything was pretty much awesome. Also, Swiss Air gives you a fun little bag as a souvenir."
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Pros: "i got a free upgrade to Business Class... which was super awesome! everything about it was great! the regular Economy Class i had on the way there was perfectly good as well. but Business Class was just the best all around."
Cons: "the ridiculous checking-in / boarding process. seems like showing my passport like once or twice would work. it did on my way there. for some reason it was needed like 17,000 times with ridiculously understaffed lines needing to service several hundred people on the way back. absurd."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats/Bed. tray table hard to come out. no one answered the bell. Old movies (same 2 yrs ago). 1st meal OK, not great. Second meals not good at all. They should learn service from Lufthansa/United or Emirates. Very Disappointed."
Pros: "Service was great --"
Cons: "Pulled a muscle trying to get out of the seat to use the bathroom-- seats are just too close--dangerous..."
Pros: "Crew were fairly attentive, have experienced better. Liked the Canadian entertainment options, even if very limited."
Cons: "Seats were okay, the plane is really showing it's age. Movie selection was very limited, and very dated."
Pros: "All good and short flight"
Cons: "My other WestJet flights let me have access to wifi via the WestJet app and the entertainment console. I was disappointed to not have access on this flight."
Pros: "We arrived where we wanted to go"
Cons: "Separated my son and I into middle seats. Made us sit on the tarmac for 30 minutes due a completely predictable issue. We should have been allowed to stay at the gate.

Pros: "Short and Sweet smooth fligjt"

Pros: "The air hostess were very nice and dis their job well. I complained about the baording lady who got us boarded on to flight and they apologized. They saw the whole incident when the lady came on the flight but they did know know her name when I asked later. That served well with smiles and jokes"
Cons: "I went on the flight running through security to make it on time for my flight. Unfortunately security was too long and took a while. I forgot my hand luggage when I grabbed my other bag. I tempted to go out and get it after I boarded. She spoked high toned voice instructing me to go back on flight. I went back and i did... she brought my bag from security I was grateful until she spoked loud in the mid section of the plane to me sarcastically and rudely "so you left a whole bag" and walked out after placing it up. I was sitting way back and people saw it all. I felt she embarrassed and very bad and i think customers should got be treated that way."

Cons: "Lost my luggage"

Cons: "Late, late, late. No window, and prisoner in my seat!"

Cons: "The food was lacking and there was really no entertainment, small TV on seat back and did not work well."
Pros: "On time! Roomy cabin space and leg room"
Pros: "Crew is always great."
Cons: "The Encore planes are the cramped, noisy and slower Q400. If you request a window seat expect the possibility that you won’t be able to comfortably place both feet on the floor. Added bonus, to balance the plane they sometimes need to request passengers to move from the front to the back which slows down departure times."
Cons: "Horrible trip. Never again"
Cons: "Flight crew arrived late delaying take off"
Pros: "Contrary to my previous experience this flight was on time and the staff was very courteous"

Pros: "The ease of airport check in and customs"
Cons: "Airport in pop , staff yelling at people to board plane , all at once ."
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding! Small overhead but crew took larger bags under the plane for no charge."
Cons: "West Jet connectivity would not work for my phone or ipad. There weren't able to fix the service."
Cons: "I had to pay for earphones. Even if I didn't want the earphones I couldn't shut off the tv screen which really bothered me. Will you, in he future,charge us for using the washroom facilities?"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was fine."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed"
Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Excellent service and departure time"
At 11 pm, we were notified that our 6 am departure would be postponed until 7:28 am. Upon arrival at the terminal, this became 8:30 am. Additional deicing and atc delays, while beyond the control of the crew, had us running like maniacs through the DFW terminal where we made our international connection with literally minutes to spare. The utter incompetence and carelessness of Mesa Airlines almost ruined the beginning of our trip we had planned and booked many months in advance. We will absolutely avoid using them in the future at all cost.
Delayed for 2.5 hours, ending up awitching planes. As we left Charlotte at 0035, no services were offered. It was not a full flight.
Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."
Pros: "The crew was great and provided a quiet environment for the red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be reevaluated. Perhaps the plane should be boarded from the rear to the front or from window to aisle seat. These suggestions would streamline the boarding process."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Airplane didn't have any AC and was very old and dirty."
Cons: "We stay stuck in PVR"
Cons: "All of my flights were delayed"
Cons: "2 hour delays on both flights of a round trip"
Cons: "you didn't respond and we were unable to take the flight."

Pros: "Easy boarding, flight on time, friendly creew"
Cons: "old plane with seat not confortable for a 3h flight"
Cons: "i wasnt able to select a seat when I checked in. they couldn't give me a better seat before bording and the fact that Im the one approaching then to have a seat selection, no one called my name."
Pros: "Chicken wrap"
Cons: "No individual screens on back of seat rests. Old tube televisions in the ceiling, in the aisle walkway that don’t retract. No WiFi. Which means not even movies on your own device. And no power - neither usb nor 3 prong"
Cons: "Delays, seats are cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Pros: "i arrived alive"
Cons: "My flight was delayed on the way to Puerto Plata on 9/9 which made me miss an entire day and I was billed for a stay at the resort. I was booked to a crappy room in MIA that I had to get changed to another hotel. THEN my departing flight from Puerto Plata back to the US was delayed 2 plus hours (as was the first flight) due to a flat tire that had to be replaced. I missed my connecting flight and had to be placed on the next flight to DCA which was the last flight. This experience was the worst. I do not have a favorable opinion of American, of which I have flown this airline for years."
Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."
Pros: "Boarding staff helped me change to a seat that was suited better for my child and I- I was SO grateful. During the flight, flight staff made sure my child was happy/comfortable which meant a lot to me."
Cons: "The normal things- better cushioned seats with some lumbar for those of us with back/nerve issues; a little wider seat options in economy for heavier people or those with lap infants; Honestly I’m reaching because I was just really happy with my flight/plane/crew service."
Pros: "Crew was friendly- organized everything well as far as getting everyone seated quickly and handing out refreshments"
Cons: "Very little leg room for anyone over five feet six inches! Happy to be 5’2” for a change!"
Pros: "Left close to time and arrived early"
Cons: "Wifi was offered, but could not get it connected."
Pros: "We got upgraded...Happy New Year to us!!! Service was excellent...landing was one of the smoothest we have ever had! Nice quiet flight with not too many people on board! I will use American Airlines again!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "nice people taking care of us during the flight"
Cons: "in Miami, had to change gate 2 times, from D38 to E9,than to D7."
Cons: "It was advertised that one can see entertainment through WIFi, but from my iPad, i can't connect to this WiFi. I tried several times until I just gave up."
Pros: "Its Alaska. Nothing more to say. My preferred airline and never had a bad flight."
Cons: "The usual. More legroom would be good. That's about it."

Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "Customer service excellence The flight attendants were very attentive"
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."

Cons: "No surveys"
Pros: "no change in take off was a good relief. crew was great and all smiles"

Cons: "They had problems fueling the plane. It starting to seem like there's always some kind of problem with these planes at American Airlines"
Pros: "One crew member was very funny and helpful which unfortunately we forgot his name but he looks like Oscar from the Office if that helps. He was awesome! And the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "James. One of the crew members on our flight he was extremely rude and had no interest in helping you with putting your carry on away and if you have to put any effort he automatically says "you have to check this in" luckily my boyfriend got up and arrange the baggages easily and done. James was obnoxious, rude, and very unfriendly. The entertainment was absolutely terrible. It was a 10 hour flight the movie choices were slim to none. When I took a flight from New York to China and rode United Airlines we had every movie selection imaginable."
Cons: "Delay of flight do to routing maintenance has cost me a overnight in Miami. sleep only 4 hrs that day and the lost of one logged. AA employees in MIA the worst ever."
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "The long time inside the plane 1h 30 m ."
Pros: "There was enough space between the passengers and for my legs."

Pros: "The crew on the actual flight was excellent."
Cons: "The staff at the Toronto airport was rude The baggage policy was unclear and they had trouble answering our questions. We could have saved a good amount of money if the baggage policy was more clear and the staff could explain it. Using the term "Economy" for all flight categories is not helpful."
Pros: "We were upgraded to premium economy for free at check-in. The crew was very kind"
Cons: "We did not enjoy the entertaining system as the headphones were not complementary. The food was quite okay but quantity was sparce and no cheese provided. Also service was slow. Drinks were served 10 minutes after meal ☹️"

Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "Flights were grounded due to high winds, then AT had problems replacing crews coming to the end of their max duty hours. Flight scheduled to depart 6pm. Flights were grounded until 7pm. It took AT another 4hrs to find new pilots and board. We could have driven to Montreal faster!"

Pros: "Personnel serviable et professionnel"
Cons: "One jour late on schedule"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and tried to help."

Pros: "The Air Transat crew and ground staff at the airports were friendly, considerate, helpful, smiling and excellent representatives of Air Transat. I am a large man, nearly 2 meters tall, with a history of two separate incidents of Deep Vein Thrombosis resulting in Pulmonary Embolisms (documented in a letter from my physician). My medical condition can be exacerbated by reduced circulation due to prolonged periods seated in a confined space, and in a worse case scenario, this can be life threatening. The ground staff and flight attendants listened to this concern, and found seating situations that allowed more leg room in the emergency exit aisle on the flight over from Montreal to Marseille. On the way back, the flight attendants gave that emergency row to other passengers (allowing me to have the three seats behind the emergency row seats, albeit with les leg room, but room to spread out and move my legs). Very kind! and attentive! Food was good, and the offers of food and drink were frequently made."
Cons: "Like all planes, I find the seating is too tight for anyone over average size. That said, I think Air Transat's seating is a bit more generous that other airlines."

Cons: "Delayed for 90 min"
Pros: "Entertainment, movies etc."
Cons: "Cramped seat"
Pros: "the aircraft was much more comfortable than my seat with WOW air. and the monitor with the entertainment was actually working (was not on WOW air) and I had ear phones which worked with it so I actually could watch it. They gave us free water twice while we were delayed. WOW air charged for their bottle of water!"
Cons: "Most passengers could not take advantage of the entertainment on board. The steward/stewardesses did not come around and offer ear phones even at a price. I pressed a call button to get some water for to take a pill... three times and no one came. I would have gone back to where they were seated and asked personally but the seat belt sign was on... I did not sense there was any tumbulence but who knows. I flew from Paris to Montreal with an hour and a half layover in Montreal so I can connect to a flight to Toronto. Not the airlines fault ... our flight from Lyon was delayed.. but they (WHO the Canadian government) insisted my baggage had to be collected from the Lyon flgiht by myself and re-checked in for the Toronto flight, and thus I had to race across the huge airport to do that. Then I had to go through customs and then security (line ups of about two hundred people and waits of about 20 minutes) . Then I was supposed to catch my connecting flgiht at Gate A67 ... that is the 67th gate of 68 gates at this terminal. By the time I got out of the security line i was hearing the ominous " final boarding call for Air Transat Flight 276 to Toronto"!!!! I am 62 year old semi-fit woman with two bags running the posted "8 minute walk: to that 67th Gate. I made it with three winded young people who similarly were begging the Air Transat staff not to take off without the others of us who were still in the security line but booked on that flght. They waited. Then we could not get clearnance to land in Toronto... and so... we were delayed going to Toronto to... and $30 in parking later... my son got me home. Surely the Montreal Airport needs and "express line" through customs and security for people needing to catch connecting flghts or any flght about to take off! Also the Airport should be providing a trolly or something for passengers who have to board planes in those gates so very far from the security entrance to A gate!!! i am happy to walk it when I was not time pressured but in situations like this one... running could cause someone in poorer health a heart attack."
Pros: "Good efficient crew!"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Great hostesses very friendly"
Cons: "Very poor meals and entertainment"
Cons: "1 hour delay while sitting inside the plane. No snack nothing to eat"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Non-stop Lots of movie choices Two meals/snacks were free On time departure"
Cons: "Unable to confirm return flight online from Paris Seating is just soooooo cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Having to check my carry on bag that all other airlines allow as carry on"
Pros: "Options plus upgrade respected during boarding. Food served during flight was decent. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Few update announcements at gate. Almost 2 hours onboard before being offered a beverage. Too many interruptions in-flight (i.e. snack, drink, meal, customs forms, headsets, another snack, captain announcements). Cabin lights turned on and snack served 2 hours before landing (corresponding to a time of midnight at the departure airport)."
Pros: "Cheaper?? Worth it???"
Cons: "Food is terrible. The kids won't eat the soaked sandwiches. Only candy and sweet juices available for kids. No window on row 8 and 9 in these planes!!! I alone travel with 2 kids!!! Doesn't every kid want a window seat? Nice move checkin team to put us on these row on each flight segment!! Rude old people flying in row ahead of us. Of course THEY know how to raise kids. Of course they will not change seats with us... their comfort is too precious."
Pros: "The plane They were on time. Way better than Air Canada!!!"
Cons: "Didn't like the food that much Some crew members weren't very polite."
We had to run to catch our flight. An announcement should have been made that they would wait for us. When we were departing our flight from Hfx. There was commotion became the flight attendants asked for passengers to wait that weren’t connecting to another flight,a passenger yelled out for everyone to SIT DOWN that weren’t connecting. I feel that the air craft should be exited the same way as is boarded,by zones.Also,if people are connecting then those passengers should be exited first,an announcement to suggest that people wait DOES NOT WORK. So much for social distancing!
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Cons: "We parked at the furthest possible gate in international. Ridiculous walk!!"
Cons: "Online check in was not accessible."
Pros: "No food , no entertainment options ."
Cons: "Have the option to purchase food on a 5 hour flight ."
Cons: "I used Kayak to find my ticket and fill out my information (all kayak logos on top of the page and so on). However, when my confirmation email and e-ticket came in, they were issued by Budgetair.com. I had no experience with them and took it to be a reliable website since they were working with Kayak. However, I had to change/cancel my flight because of delayed passport delivery, and this is when everything turned very Ugly! I had to spend an hour over the phone to get connected to an agent with BudgetAir, who disconnected the line within 2 minutes saying: “please hold so I can pull up your information”. This game went on for 6 hours. I tried to connect with the airline directly to make the change, which was not possible since Budgetair had placed a restriction on this ticket. After 6-7 hours, which meant no work for me or lunch because I was sitting behind my desk with a phone on my hand, I got through an agent who was rude and impolite. He took 15 minutes to find flights for the new dates (I did it in 2 minutes on their website), and then told me to pay $315 in extra fess. When I inquired that the prices on your website for the exact same ticket is way cheaper than my original ticket price, he got angry and aggressive. Basically implying that I have no choice to take their offer as is, or let go of my original ticket price of over $2000. Long story short, DO NOT buy from BudgetAir if you like having a peace of mind!"
Pros: "Seats and plane condition"
Pros: "Liked the comfort of the plane, on time, and smooth touchdown"
Cons: "Food was dried out, crew was extremely slow to dispense beverages and food"
Pros: "On time and all fine. Excellent service and good food."
Pros: "Most of the flight there was strong odor of suer smell"
Cons: "Lack of food choices!"
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Pros: "Kind and polite service."
Cons: "Again, very rude staff, not helpful at all."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Just before boarding it was announced that there would be no hot water on board and passengers should try to run and get a coffee at the airport. 5 hour flight ahead. I didn't have free hand to carry a coffee on board.So no coffee or tea. Also no water in the bathrooms! All meals for purchase were not loaded so no veggies or any gluten free options for purchase. Wanted to buy Duty Free and was told that it wasn't loaded either for some reason. The cabin was a bit cool and after 4 hours of cold drinks I was a bit chilled and asked for a blanket only to discover that they only sell them to the passengers. Then I got the giggles as they thanked us for choosing Air Canada voted number one airline in North America. Hilarious!!!"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Most parts of the flight were normal - nothing exceptional or problematic"
Pros: "Friendly folks"
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then cancelled, and there wasn't even bad weather at either airport. I still don't know why the flight was cancelled. My alternate flight had to be from a different airport and that flight was also delayed. I went from a non-stop flight to a flight with a layover... a 7 hour layover. Was not fun sleeping at the airport. On top of that, I had paid to select my seat and it wasn't honored on the flight back. Somehow I was unassigned because of the flight change during departure but I was still charged."
Pros: "I hated both my trips with Air Canada. I payed extra for a better seat and the one I got was dirty. The tv was NOT working. On top of the 5 hours delay, I hated all the experience. The attendants messages is never clear and focus. It's like Air Canada is employing teenagers with NO work etics or professionalism. I am a frequent flyer and will NEVER flew with Air Canada again. The cheap ticket is not worth the cheap aircraft and cheap service I received."
Cons: "There was absolutely nothing that I found to complain about"
Cons: "dirt and stuff on floor between floor and wall, bad, never seen that before in a nearly new plane"

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly...quick and easy flight"
Pros: "I had an exit row seat so the extra room was much appreciated."
Cons: "Aircanada's method of multi zone boarding is a mess. Everyone queues up and blocks whatever zones actually can get on. The seat next to the exit door was freezing. The food was horrible. I understand airplane food is bad but this is some of the worst I have had. Our flight our was fine. There was no inflight entertainment for an 8+ hour flight - you had to rent iPads which is crazy these days. We were late to takeoff due to airport traffic which isn't the airlines fault but then because the customs baggage scanning system went down at Montreal my husband missed his connection - was eventually put on my flight after two trips to ticketing and three calls to aircanada but his bag never arrived in Chicago. We are still waiting for it."
Pros: "Food is okay. No delay on time flight I enjoyed it"
Cons: "So far nothing flight attendants are very nice"
Pros: "Crew service in the plane was very nice, plane was cold and clean as it should,"
Cons: "Lost a flight because they closed the door 20 min before departure, no calls where made to passengers ... I was delayed by airport security and by the time I made it to the gate it was already dispatched, flight closed doors 10 min after it was scheduled to board, very efficient boarding crew that left 6 passengers on the ground !! Since it was a short flight between Toronto and Montreal they gabe me a seat in the next flight which had a delay in boarding (30 min) and then delayed departure too another 30 min ... All in all i spent almost 5 hours in the airport for a 1h flight"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "NO LEG ROOM!!!"
Cons: "it was a horrible experience and i will never fly with air canada again. best of luck"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were very small. I was flying Premium Economy, so it was tolerable, but my daughters were flying economy with very hard seats, very little room, no snacks and no entertainment. It was the Gulag! I can't imagine it being worse for them. On a short domestic flight, it may be tolerable, but for a long international flight across the pond, it was a nightmare! Also, please stop serving those hot pockets as a snack and please stop charging for potato chips and snacks unless you plan to serve a substantial meal! A 400 calorie meal is not going to keep anyone satisfied for 10 hours!"
Pros: "Good selection of TV and film's"
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "crew seemed very busy and did not care of passenger request, I had asked mote than 5 times for a cup of water for my 7 years old daughter and nobody came back with it. I had to be more directive to get it finally."

Cons: "On the way back there was only one person in business class. Nobody got bumped up"

Pros: "Good onboard entertainment"
Cons: "Overhead cabin extremely small compare to US planes"
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Had a technical difficulties 3 times in a row. Had to be cancelled and put on the next day and again same thing over and over. So missed all my connections. Cut short my vacation. Will never flight air Canada again."
