This was by far the worst experience flying I have ever had
Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."
Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Prior to boarding, we had help with our seating. My wife gets anxiety and our son is three, so I felt like I needed to be there for them both. A crew member ensured we sat together."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, The staff were nice, the food was ok."
Cons: "The food could have been better but was ok."
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Pros: "Overhead bins were newly done with plenty of space since carryon can be placed vertical on side. Decide holder built into the seat was very nice."
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Pros: "Plane had a modern feel with exception of entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment on the back of the screen. This is 2018, who doesn’t have that??? Sit length was a little small. I’m 5’10 and barely fit."
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move."
Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Trip duration, coordination of the crew"
Cons: "The food. They need to bring back complete meal for the customer. Enough with chips and soda."
Cons: "Very small plane, economy seats only."
Pros: "Ease of travel. Seamless boarding process."
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Cons: "Gates are unorganized and crowded"
Cons: "did not get my requested wheel chair service."
Pros: "seats are very uncomfortable I know they can make a plane with a wide enough aisle so that you don't get hit in the arm every time the cart or anyone goes past you. why can I ride a twin otter and not need a seat belt extender and need one on American? On the return on the Airbus, the seats were a little more comfortable, but still need seatbelt extender."
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and caring"
Cons: "The music and entertainment collection was very limited"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and welcoming. Great movie and tv show selection..."
Cons: "Not much room for middle seat folks. Went to BA counter, only to be redirected to American Airlines. I was not aware of this change until I got to airport. Perhaps a heads up next time, it would be greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Roomy, Helpful crew. Good food. I liked the yogurt/ granola / dry fruits for breakfast (something I can eat at 2:00am) . Landed early. Great flight all around"
Pros: "The dinner was good. The crew were great."
Cons: "It was the worst seat I have ever had."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Cons: "The boarding staff were very unprofessional. Will not fly American out of Reagan again."
Pros: "Always a great experience w American especially for service members"
Pros: "My daughter liked the movie Gifted on the flight. Only decent experience in 2 days of travel"
Cons: "Worst experience with an airline ever. Never going to fly AA again. They lost 3 valued customers."
Pros: "I did like that the flight attendant checked my bag for me land was very forth coming on tips on how to save money with traveling. The fights we very smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that airport staff didn't alert when the plane was leaving (no announcement was made and staff gave wrong information, I ended up"
Pros: "The Spanish staff were nice."
Cons: "Air plain was old."
Cons: "Chairs were a bit tight"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "Personel attitude and excelent service"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay to deppart and the small room in seats."
Cons: "LATAM took our luggage from a flight from a different airline that we used to get from Miami to Orlando. They locked it up and closed before we arrived. My friend was unable to get his medicine, I missed vital time from a work contract, and we had to spend the night at the airport waiting until 1pm today to receive our luggage. This is the worst experience I've had with an airline. No one spoken with on LATAM seemed to care. We were stranded without sleep and got no clear answer from the LATAM hotline. There was no mention of compensation for our troubles. I will not be recommending this airline to other travelers aa this has ruines my work schedule and my friend is unable to get his medicine."
Pros: "comfortable seating"
Cons: "For the crew members not to speak so loudly in the back while people are sleeping on overnight flights. If the entertainment is going to be through an App on your person devices charging outlets should be available."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and hospitable."
Cons: "I didn't like how small the seat was on this flight. I'm used to flying JetBlue and getting extra comfort. Also, my television wasn't working properly. I would start a show and then it would play for a couple minutes then the screen would go out, but the sound still on. This happened with every show I tried. Overall I was disappointed in the new American plane even for just a short flight. I can't imagine flying that for a long distance."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Pros: "Absolutly, they let me switch seat"
Cons: "No leg room,"
Cons: "The staff did not want to accept my ticket purchased through kayak, told me that should have bought a ticket directly through air transat, and they told me to buy a new ticket elsewhere if I wanted to travel on that day. So I had to buy a same day ticket with air canada for an additional $900 CAD, and my ticket bought through kayak was useless, making me waste the entire cost of the ticket purchased through kayak."
Pros: "Crew amazing. Passengers great"
Cons: "Seats are way too small. Aisles way too tight. Recent acquisition by air Canada must improve passenger comfort."
Pros: "IFE, aircraft"
Cons: "Comfort, food options"
Pros: "Air Transat provide excellent service with affordable prices. I have arrived late to check-in desk due to unexpected traffic but Air Transat team was very supportive, even helped us to cross the customs in no-time until the gate of the plane without interrupting the flight time. Highly Recommended."
Pros: "L’équipage très serviable à l’ecoute et souriant"
Cons: "Pas d’ecran dans les appuie tête devant pour l’entertainment. Le siege n’a aucun ajustement pour la tête Et aucune prise usb pour charger nos appareils"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Seats were tiny"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Old plane... not much room for legs and seating are uncomfortable! No personal entertainment système! Poor flight"
Cons: "Checking site was down Boarding was delayed because of crew forgot to tag Cary-on luggage for passengers, we had to all go off the plane to identify our luggage’s No space on the airplane, didn’t get to sit beside my wife. Would not recommend Pay the extra to go with a reputable airline."
Pros: "Nice flying, nice crew, nice jet"
Cons: "Luggage took an hour to get out... unacceptable"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane. All on time . Good experience."
Pros: "It’s hard to write a review when flight was supposed to leave at 6:30 and didn’t until midnight, but due to weather. It was frustrating for all but staff and pilot kept us informed at all times so that was appreciated. There wasn’t much to do but to wait out the weather."
Cons: "For the weather to be better and to have left on time - but obviously that is out of everyone’s control."
Cons: "It took almost an hour from landing for our luggage to make it to the belt. For a domestic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "It left fairly promptly. Service was efficient. The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "flight was delayed in both directions; very few announcements; the crew were ok, but there was not much service in the hour we waited foe the plane to take off and during the flight"
Pros: "Great price! For the price, we didn't expect much, just travel and get there safe - NO FRILLS. We paid a little extra for legroom and are happy this was not an inflated price. Paying in advance for our bag and getting a small discount was also appreciated. "Get what you pay for" without feeling "nickled and dimed" is what we consider economical and fare treatment."
Cons: "Again "you get what you pay for" is considered. However if I was to be critical, the choice of movies was a little stressful and one sided. (Star Wars and The Avengers). I brought my own entertainment but I felt bad for the Older generation who may have preferred something a little more relaxing and less CGI explosions. Also the interior decor and hardware of the plane was seriously aged and worn, which could use for an upgrade soon."
Pros: "Modern aircraft. Leg room was ok. It was a busy flight."
Cons: "Boarding was late but made it in time. Need better seat selections."
Pros: "Boarding started from the back to the front. Which, I always thought it's the correct way to embark and it was the first time I saw it done that way."
Cons: "When the boarding was finallly finalized the airplane was ready to take off on the track for about an hour and a half and no one was told why we weren't taking off. I decided to ask and the flight attendant said that "it took long to embark all the luggage and that it won't be very long". To which, I didn't understand what one thing had to do with the other since that shouldn't be the cause to why we are paralized on the track but I just left it like that. Instantly after she walks to the back, they announce that they there was a problem with the A/C and that we had to wait to have a spot near a gate sothat we could go back and and a mecanic could come and fix it. After it took for ever... they finally fixed it but now we had to wait for gas. At this point, whitin those three hours, only one glass of water was offered to us and no appology. Thankfully, we finally took off, 3 three hours and a half behind schedule. They started to serve food and drinks to first class people and were completely taken care of but no attention to all the other passengers. At this point it's been 5 hours that we are on this plane and it seems that the service was extremly slow to get us hydraded or been offered anything to eat. My flight was 4hours away from Montreal to Calgary initiallyT And this whole event made it an 8hour travel with, the fact being completely ignored by the crew and nothing being offered for customer satisfaction. The pilot only said a small "we apologize" after we had already landed. It isn't the first time that I fly with this company and I find that it used to be one of the top companies in Quebec but the service and the quality have deteriorated overtime. There is always something negative that happens when I fly with them and I've noticed that the customer service isn't really present. It's okay but since it doesn't seem to matter to them, I will no longer fly with this company. (P.S.: this whole event caused me to miss the last bus to my final destination and have to wait at the airport until the next day at 9:30am to take the first bus in the morning... luckily I only work in the afternoon.)"
Pros: "Convenient time ,food was ok and no delay."
Cons: "No plug ,no inflight entertainment ,uncomfortable sits and crew was not overly friendly"
Cons: "my suitcase are mising"
Pros: "Friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Delayed flight, no snacks, difficulty at baggage claim to get baby car seats. And very frustrating that they didn’t give us our stroller at the gate. We had to carry our two kids through immigration and the baggage claim until after all the bags came off, then our stroller and car seats came last!"
Pros: "Great video system."
Cons: "Seats and legroom are insufficient."
Pros: "On time,I could charge my mobile"
Cons: "The curser of the smart screen was hard to use"
Pros: "Good flight, no incidents. Liked the food"
Cons: "Audio was not working, no personal tv screens"
Pros: "Loved the see and simplicity of booking with kayak. One of my fastest flight booking with minimal headaches"
Cons: "Ability to check in with the airline through the kayak app. At least through a link to the airlines website with the information required prefilled"
Pros: "The best parts - the crew and the entertainment. The stewards we engaging, courteous, and professional. They also provided some very good information on what to do once in the Cancun terminal. The in-flight entertainment system had an excellent selection."
Cons: "The low score for food is a result from there not being any on the flight. It was only 4 hours in duration, and we brought our own snacks. The coffee was excellent!"
Pros: "Nothing I don't take Air Transat anymore and not recommend to anymone"
Cons: "Transat taking advantage of passengers by charging fees for luggage on return flight I was charged $35US for 2nd luggage on return flight (no charge for same luggage on departure flight). Poor customer relations of staff. Aisle seating was requested and was very uncomfortable. During check-in, Transat staff was not helpful in handling luggage. Poor service and very bad customer service from staff."
Pros: "Possibly of direct flight. Had to book earlier flights due to deteriorating health of brother who fied tbis week thus had to pay for 2 flight"
Cons: "Having pushed to just fly for reservations and no warning that this company doesn’t allow for change if plan as brothers health took for the worst andhad to fly earlyier to see him before he died. I will never again use just fly for any bookings and have told my family members and friends about this company poor customer service. Buyer beware if you use just fly. Air transat said they would havé refunded us but it was up to just fly that we had to go through. Never again just fly."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "You can only purchase meals and snacks. There should be, at the very least, a snack provided with this flight."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I am still at the airport in Montreal looking for a flight to leave Montreal. I came 3 hours before the flight, I tried the machine I couldn't find my reservation. I thought the problem was with the machine, went to the agent same problem. they gave me that number +18553331101 to chek with the air transat customer care, they couldn't find the reservation either, I tried then to call the number provided on the reservation confirmation +18774964815, no answer, even the flight was delayed for almost 30 minutes, I still couldn't get on board. Now I'm still at the airport looking for a flight to leave. my question now is after all of that are you guys still going to charge my card that $226.43?"
Pros: "Great service nice crew We received a C$20.00 vouchers to grab lunch at YUL airport Delays happen Air Transat handled the situation efficiently"
Cons: "4 hours delays because of mechanical problem but from fed and n reasonable time"
Pros: "There are no leg room at all for tall people."
Cons: "Too small"
Cons: "the delay 9 hours"
Cons: "Antiquated electronics use procedures"
Pros: "I was crammed into the middle seat between two obese men. I could hardly move my legs or arms. They offered bistro but when I asked for a bistro item they said they had no more."
Pros: "Lot of room, friendly staff."
Cons: "Food was ok from Prague to Montreal. However, from Montreal to Prague we received a hot sandwich ??? and a slice of vanilla cake for breakfast? On top of that they were promoting some chef Vezina at an extra charge of 25$ thinking that people would buy a standard meal at a surcharge rate? This is really bad publicity for airtransat, never had I witnessed such poor food on an 8 hour flight. Waving the standard meal at a surcharge rate is truly uncool. Offering the hot bun as a standard meal to fulfil the long flight hot meal standard is a low blow, that's all I can say."
Cons: "Late boarding, no assigned seating, virtually no options for buying food on board (and the small sandwich that was given for free was not good), no entertainment system, and no outlets for charging electronics."
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Helpful flight attendants and comfortable enough seats for the price."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but the woman in front of me reclined her seat 100% and was in my lap the entire flight: made for leg cramping and discomfort for the 8+ hours in the air. The sand which I received also had soggy bread after warming.. I got the vegetarian and was a bit disappointing."
Pros: "Seats were alright"
Cons: "Lost luggage and no communication since we landed"
Cons: "Our flight from Barcelona was late and we had to rush across the airport to get the connection to Toronto. By the time we landed it was almost time for the Toronto flight to depart. No information was given to the passengers when we landed informing them that the Toronto flight was waiting for us. No information was given by the ground staff either, just told to drop your checked bag off and get to the gate and hope the flight was still there. Would have been a lot less stressful if someone had said "don't worry, the Toronto flight is waiting for you""
Pros: "The crew, the plane, and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Not anyone's fault but the plane was filled with crying babies...the overnight flight was difficult."
Pros: "They gave us water when we had to wait an hour before take off. It was not their fault we were delayed. They did wait for the 30 of us who were delayed from Lyon and did not take off without us."
Cons: "They did not answer my call (s) for water to take a pill. They never offered anyone earphones. There were no services at all on this flight as the seat belt sign was on the whole time."
Pros: "For a traveller since I was a kid, this is one of my worst experiences"
Cons: "The line for the registration was sooo long! The staff never smiles, if you ask a question they loook at you as you were crazy, they are just hurrying up so they can go sit and chat together The bathroom were disgusting, my bladder almost popped The place is app small, i only weight 105lbs and I was in discomfort The tv, reminds me of the 1990's when you have one big tv for everybody or TV's in the middle of the row"
Cons: "No individual screens for entertainment"
Pros: "Quick baggage drop at counter , very nice crew ..."
Cons: "Seat configuration 3 3 3, no power outlets for charging your devices..."
Pros: "On time, inexpensive"
Cons: "Uncomfortable space, narrow seats and corridor, poor food"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good entertainment selection available and drink provided on short flight."
Cons: "Delay and disorganization at airport left passengers frustrated with at least 3 changes to gate prior to departure. Added to this was the incorrect announcement on P.A. System at 6:55pm a change of gate to leave at original time (7pm), only to have a stampede of passengers arrive at newly assigned gate to have no airline representative there and soon a new/revised departure time of 21:05 instead. Hopefully, those clients with international connections were able to make it, but I suspect that several had their plans changed with this > 2 hour delay."
Pros: "It was well heated because often airplanes are too cold, I get sick and also notice that some passenger start coughing, and also me after some hours. The personal was friendly and I knowticed that they tried to please everybody. Unfortunately there was a baby who cried most of the time and her mother simply was not able to calm her. I also travelled with two babies and small children every year long distances but mine always fell asleep and never cried. I know this is beyond your control"
Cons: "The food was not too good, I think I will order vegetarian the next time."
Cons: "No food & 1 hr delay"
