Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, food was bad"
Pros: "Superb flight attendants"
Cons: "I feel like no one has responded to any of my complaints. We were re routed twice and left with no where to sleep, missing work, and paying a bunch of extra for cars to and from airport. My friend was refunded and I have yet to receive one response even though we flew and bought our tickets together."
Pros: "The food and crew were great.."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay due to a malfunction on the plane in Frankfurt. Upon landing in Atlanta there was no gate to deplane from so we had to sit on the hot plane for over an hour (still sitting as I’m writing this)."
Pros: "Spacious and quiet aircraft, lots of legroom in certain exit row seats. Friendly cabin crew. Compared to the loud and bumpy ride on the Lufthansa 747, the A380 was way better."
Cons: "Moderate delays at each end—waiting for transfer passengers delayed our departure half an hour. We made up the time en route but then sat on the tarmac at LAX because the gate was occupied. I think my seat mates missed their connection. They broke the handle on my rollaboard (checked due to stingy cabin baggage allowance)."
Pros: "Cabin was clean"
Cons: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."
Pros: "flight was on time"

Cons: "Food on flight Detroit - Frankfurt was terrible."
Pros: "everything was good other than the entertainment package"
Cons: "not verymany movies to select"
Pros: "So much more comfortable to sit and sleep on such a long flight. Worth every penny!"
Pros: "Food was good. The entertainment was better as long as the system wasn’t locking up. Fairly clean plain"
Pros: "The organization of this flight was great— my party of three boarded quickly, and we were pleased with the complimentary drinks service. The entertainment options could have presented with more options, however, I was not upset with what I watched. The crew was very attentive, and the flight was smooth, overall."
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was very hot— there were a lot of us packed into this flight, and there were no sources of air.. so it got pretty stuffy. Between the temperature and the lights staying on for a majority of the flight, it was difficult to sleep, especially for so many hours. In addition to this, I had a dairy allergy, and was not able to eat either of the meals I was offered, because the fish and “veggie pasta” were both covered in cheese."
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Stuck in airport for 24 hrd"
Pros: "Great crew good seat room"
Cons: "1.the screen had a gletch that it was doing a restart by itself 2.the boarding was confusing since the way to the gate is blocked and doesnt open until 50 min prior to boarding 3.there wasnt any groups for boarding except for business class and first class first then economy my seat was in the 51 row and i wasnt in the front of the line of boarding so i had to wait alot to get to my seat since everybody were putting their carry-on and blocking the aisle"
Cons: "For people who are going frequently to the US because of the small airplane from FRA_TLV A321 It is not worth for me buying Primer Economy since it is mixed and in British it is all the wayTLV-PHL 2 airplanes with primer economy"
Pros: "We liked that no one was sitting behind us."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great"
Pros: "I liked that the flight attendants were courteous and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system is a compkeyfailure and is unresponsive to touch screen. The entertainment feels like it was done to please everyone. In the process the selections are of limited interest. Movies are not interesting and often not available. If this entertainment were on the ground it would be a train wreck."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The headphones given were outdated and hurt the ears after a while"
Pros: "Crew are very polite and supportive!"
Cons: "We were offered two hot meals, each time with the same 2 choices. That's not much to choose from..."
Pros: "Nice flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "Great crew, service was excellent"
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing.I recommend this service to anyone who's traveling"
Cons: "Last minute gate change in Munich was a bit hectic, as it was a tight connection."
Pros: "The check in process was fast"
Cons: "All the flight were bumping and landing felt very dangerous"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for the conditions of the weather although it was clear and nice upon our arrival. Then the airlines did not deliver our luggage and we had to wait for it"
Cons: "I order a seat near the window A9 but this seat has no window. the crew did not solve the problem even I ask them and note that is important to me/"
Pros: "Loved the little sandwiches!"
Cons: "The check-in process in Paris was frustrating and slow. The boarding process was also a bit chaotic."
Pros: "my favorite airline"
Pros: "When in the air crew attentive"
Cons: "Late boarding after allowing priority customer to board, Crew then took ages to start to finish boarding and taxi , Plane sent to furtherest runway, Made little time up,"
Pros: "Traveling in early February, the plane was relatively empty. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "No entertainment on flight! Smallish plane."
Pros: "Flight crew was decent."
Cons: "The flight was late in departing and then rerouted from Frankfurt to Manchester causing many passengers to loose connection. The reasongiven was a crew scheduling issue. Compensation upon arrival at Frankfurt was nil unless you asked and if you did you got an insulting 7 euros which barely even paid for coffee. No apology to people given just a "business as usual, it is your problem attitude". At arrival in Frankfurt there was a pass the buck attitude where any questions of connecting flights, and reroutes was forwarded to a Lufthansa counter that was NOT manned by anyone. Very frustrated."
Pros: "Excellent and attentive crew, very good food/beverages. Lufthansa clearly stands out in international air travel."
Pros: "Again, I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'snack' at the end of the flight was more of a throwaway:(pizza or) "Sausage": six one-inch hollow spheres of sausage with a hint of Dijon(?) sauce inside, all served with a mmedium-sized dry chewy roll. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "The huge plane was completely full; no handy empty seat nearby to stretch out into. Took forever to board and exit the plane."
Pros: "Crew onboard was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "No legroom in coach. The person in front of me was sitting in my lap. They are the only airline that weighs your handbag, the luggage you take onboard. E en of it fits the size requirements they weigh it and make you confirm. They don't care if your checked luggage is underweight but your hand luggage is overweight and both add up to less than what you're allowed overall. Makes no sense and is such a useless hassle."
Cons: "Behind my seat there was a couple with a young kid kicking our seat all the time for 8 hours...the crew would walk by saw it and didnt say anything. The kid is young, not his fault. Kids are kids. But when i told his parents that we were being bothered they just ignored us. I believe the crew has to keep an eye on behavior like that and put a stop to it. I guess those are the perks of flying economy class. Cheap and nobody cares..."
Pros: "leg room, entertainment, the pilot was informative throughout the flight"
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Cons: "Seats, The website would not let me upgrade to premium seats. I am also a Gold Star Alliance member and thought that I should have been able to have the Premium seating available, especially since there were vacant seating. But it was a great flight. The best airline flight I have had so far."
Connections too many delays and flight changes
Missed connecting flight and westjet did not take responsibility for there delay

Cons: "Seats too narrow with little leg room."
Cons: "baggage tag system at CDG Pairs was lame"
Pros: "Entire experience went smoothly. Right from when I booked by tickets to checking in at the airport. I was kept informed of changes to the flight itinerary and didn't have any trouble throughout the process."
Cons: "Nothing really could be improved other than typical airline problems that can't necessarily be solved. We did fly out of LAX on our way home and that was more of an unpleasant experience as there is not near enough seating for people waiting to board their flights."
Cons: "There was no food available on the flight"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "guess they are a budget airline, since Millar to Rouge, Air Transat etc. Didn’t realize they weren’t a real airline company. As said, this is our first time using WestJet."
Cons: "Your website did autofillmwith the passenger name and I had to pay extra to get the bame changed. Pretty bad. Not using your site ever. Thanks"
Cons: "I was told I had time to run to washroom before boarding, and 5 min later the boarding area was empty and I was locked out. Plane was ready to leave me because the guy at desk forgot to tell them I wasn’t there yet. Thankfully I was able to hunt someone down to let them know I was there."
Cons: "The flight left without me"
Pros: "The flight was great the attendants sweet and polite"
Cons: "The seat didn’t recline"
Pros: "Wonderful friendly and helpful ground staff and crew."

Pros: "The staff are very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Crying baby behind me, man sitting next to me was sleeping on me, when I asked to switch seats, the response was “sorry.. are you ok though?”"
Pros: "Thought the flight left a little late, we still arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable. Though I'm not fat there was little room to move left or right there was however ample leg room considering I'm fairly tall. Though the flights are quite expensive no meal is included., only drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Calgary airport we thought was terrible, half hour walks between gates We had to go through security again between flights. Worst airport in the country"
Pros: "On time! Roomy cabin space and leg room"
Pros: "Too much fog so plane could not land. Had to rebook out of Toronto for the late afternoon. Crew was very accommodating with my reschedule."
Cons: "Nothing to like. Never got on the plane. Not Westjet’s fault. They can’t control tye weather."
Pros: "No comments"
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "One of the flight attendents was rude. The head rests on the chairs didn't work. The chairs where uncomfortable. The plane was delayed. The drink selection was poor. The overall general westjet hospitality was just way below average and I felt like the company is turning so cheap I was worried they may have double sold my seat on the plane."
Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers i Vancouver were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"
Cons: "I checked my little carry-on and it was in Calgary but didn't make it to Vancouver. Trust it will be delivered today."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled unexpectadly. Notified 4am with no resolution but to fly out almost 48 hours later."
Cons: "I checked into my flight 24 hours in advance, got my boarding pass and everything. 12 hours before, I double check the boarding time and my flight has been cancelled. I got no notification of this, luckily I happened to check on my own."
Pros: "Punctual departure. (Made my international connection in plenty of time)"
Cons: "No wine to purchase this time"
Pros: "Space of the plane"
Cons: "Having to have a physical boarding pass and keep having to get it checked."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The plane was old so no entertainment, food was not good, could not sit in area waiting for flight, no chairs left and I was 5ere. Very early. Travelling is not great anymore, the crew try’s their best I know."
Pros: "We were traveling with an infant and a toddler and the staff was helpful and gave us info about which bathroom had a changing table and how to hold the infant during take off and landing without us needing to ask for it."
Cons: "We had a bit of delay because the plane came in late but luckily enough the winds were favorable and the pilot was able to catch up."
Pros: "Planes were clean and crew was polite. Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I was not able to check online. Their kiosks at the airport were out of order. All of them! All their baggages were being photographed and double tagged. They had to call some where to get me a boarding pass. It seemed like they were doing their best to discourage me, never to fly with WestJet. And they might have just succeeded."
Pros: "Everything was fine. The gate agents were very cordial. We took off a few minutes early and arrived early."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "Short flight. Home on time."
Pros: "I liked that the pre-ordered food was given at the beginning of the flight."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Crowded seating"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The online entertainment was not working."
Pros: "Staff tried to do what they could but unable to really do anything. They only repeatedly messed up boarding passes causing me to miss flights."
Cons: "The planes were not in working order. The first plane had a hole in it from hitting something the flight was completely cancelled only one out of the two people at the counter was helping a line of people, but due to a system error people were not checked in . I had to get 4 different print outs of my boarding pass. the second aircrafts air conditioner didn't work, the third plane the back door would not close. I spent over 12 hours in the airport and couldn't get home till the following day . The airline did not have a hotel reservation ready as promised and had to wait an additional 15 minutes while they were telling me I was responsible for my own room. Eventually they got me a room and gave me a voucher. I would never fly or recommend West Jet i just don't feel safe."
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Great flight staff! Entertaining and pleasant"
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."

Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seats"
Pros: "all the service was very good to us"
Boarding in DFW was quick once we had a gate agent.
This was by far the worst experience flying I have ever had
Second leg of the flight was delayed - the copilot apparently injured his back as he left his hotel, and tried to continue with the flight but couldn't. That's not so bad... the issue is that AA had no backup plan. For such a large airport (Miami) you'd think AA would have a plan to cover such issues... but they didn't. So, we got held up for almost 3 hours while they looked for another copilot. Of course, when it's less than 3 hours, passengers get no compensation for AA's screwup. It's a terrible situation for passengers, but it's the crappy deal we have. On the other hand, the gate crew was great... they tried to keep us informed for the most part. My wife had to go up and ask a few times, but they were good about telling her the status honestly, which is greatly appreciated. They should have been more proactive about this, but at least they gave the info, so that's appreciated. Bottom line, that's the only real positive on this trip... hence the second star... the rest of the issues would have garnered a 1-star review.
I like this aircraft. There is good entertainment choices and WiFi. The main dish was surprisingly good.
Worst airline experience of my life, depending on how the rest of my “customer service” experience goes I may never fly american airlines again.
Once we got on the flight everything was fine. The first leg of our flight was delayed 3 times but American sent us emails allowing us to chose a new itinerary.
Pros: "It was a horrible experience"
Cons: "Everything could have been better especially the staff"
Cons: "Very full flight when covid cases are at all time highs. Not possible to social distance in these conditions."
Pros: "Flight was so smooth"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Pros: "Crew was absolutely amazing."
Cons: "On time flught instead of a two hour delay"
Pros: "I like when they dim the lights so I could sleep"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude, I was too tired to deal with her attitude"
Pros: "entertainment, seat space (main cabin extra)"
Cons: "meal service more suitable for daily flight (breakfast first and lunch last)"
Pros: "Crew members were all very pleasant and personable. A very special experience with the local ticket agent / boarding agent (double duty) in Guadalajara: Maria Hernandez (or perhaps Fernandez) who was pleasant, professional, helpful and even called us respectfully by name ("Mr. and Mrs. Petrusek") She is an outstanding representative of American Airlines! Gracias to her!!"
Cons: "Not a thing! We live in Mexico and we usually fly Volaris...I think AA just became our favorite airline!"
Pros: "Great stews"
Cons: "Food, 1st class had granola bars. Live tv was advertised, but not available"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to poor staff and a delayed landing from my crossover. Given how childish the ground staff were being, I can only assume the flight staff wouldn't be much better."
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour"
Pros: "New plane, more headroom made the cabin feel more spacious! Friendly flight crew! Loads of entertainment options....free! USB ports in every seat!"
Cons: "Traveling in coach is never comfortable. Fan was difficult to direct, and air flow was not especially strong."
Pros: "We were on a new plane and each seat had power."
Cons: "I was in the window seat near the back and there was a steel box (guessing for the electricity to the seat-back) that took up a third of the width for my feet."
Cons: "Six “10 min delays” that led to a 1 hr plus delay"
Pros: "The staff at Ontario International was very helpful."
Cons: "No real complaint of the flight or staff. Next time I will upgrade my seating."
Pros: "Multiple delays with little information as to why or by when it would be corrected."
Pros: "I liked that we were given cookies with our drinks that was a nice touch. I also enjoyed that it was a very quick flight from Dallas to Cincinnati. Shout out to the crew members, they work really hard to help us feel comfortable."
Cons: "The sound of the turbo engine in the beginning made my head feel really dizzy, but the buzzing went away after a while. Other than that, I think that the tiny planes should still have some sort of entertainment, even if it's just a single movie playing for all to watch."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Pros: "The crew on the actual airplane was fine. And we got here."
Cons: "The gate agent was very rude at CLT, and no one was giving us real updates about why our flight was getting delayed, they just kept pushing the time fifteen minutes each time we got close to the boarding time without communication. I get that there’s weight restrictions, but they gate checked my bag on a hardly full flight. I’ve now been waiting an additional 20 minutes after already being delayed over an hour."
Cons: "AA gate crew checked my bag at the gate, but to the wrong person!! I missed my flight because I had to go find it in baggage claim, take a taxi to another terminal, hoof it across the terminal to TSA pre-check which was 45 people deep and slow as a snail, then run to the gate (which was at the ooooother end I originally entered through). I missed my flight literally by 3 minutes. There was no one at the gate to help me, AA staff kept telling me to go to different places, getting a new flight was INSANE. The whole experience was a pure nightmare."
Pros: "I think for the most part you have some of the best customer service but your snacks are awful compared to other airlines."
Pros: "The plane landed on time."
Cons: "Beverage are limited, one of the crews was loud, the food was terrible. I made a reservation through japan airlines. If they do a codeshare, they should give the passengers equal advice."
Pros: "good price."
Cons: "La Guardia Airport is a kind of messy. Some people in AA are rude, specially ground personnel."
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Pros: "The guy in the middle seat left and never came back. Smooth flight. Good crew. Got both pretzels and cookies, as well as 2 cups of ice, with no problem."
Cons: "Entertainment system had some quirks. I choose my flights in an attempt to make sure I can watch a movie during the flight, so that's important to me. This one stopped once in the middle of the movie, but worked one I started it again. Didn't have buttons for fast forward or rewind, so had to guess on the timeline when I wanted to see something I missed. Then the flight map kept resetting to a mode other than what I wanted. I know these are first world problems, and they in no way affected the safety of the flight, but I expect more."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Cons: "they broke my luggage"
Cons: "Denied boarding by gate agent. 5 min past mandatory one hour cut off from boarding. We had been standing in line for agent for 30 minutes. Two customers flying with little dogs delaying the movement of line. Flight was subsequently delayed by 2 hours and 10 min. More than enough time to allow us to board under 1 hour regulation. I booked LATAM instead of AA based on reputation, very upsetting experience for us."
Pros: "Flight was smooth with no issues whatsoever!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Pros: "Great team of flight crew members but boy it will be a long time before I want to travel through London Heathrow again."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "That it finally took off and landed."
Cons: "Everything else! American is getting worst by the day."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the plane wasn't completely full so there was a little room to stretch out. And you'll never hear me complain that American Ninja Warrior is on tv."
Cons: "The plane was late, and I had a connecting flight. Luckily I made it in time, but my connector, despite also being American Airlines, was in a different section of the airport. And the seat was really uncomfortable when sat in for two hours."
Pros: "For a flight on a US-based airline, this was very comfortable. Much better than the current domestic tin cans. Flight was early"
Cons: "Flight crew giving instructions seemed to be forgetting everything and breaking in every 2 minutes to add a new sentence."
Cons: "They changed my flight at the last moment and my connection was 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."
Pros: "Crew is great!"
Cons: "Air Canada changed our seating on day of travel. I had ordered tickets over a month in advance and scheduled seating for my wife and I on our 3 leg flight. Air Canada changed our seating on the 1st and 3rd leg and we were no longer sitting together."
Cons: "Crew skipped our isle for drinks, couldn’t be bothered to come back. Didn’t respond to call lights. Flight was overcrowded, poor guy behind me couldn’t even fit in his seat, had to keep his legs in the aisle and fold them in ever time someone went by."
Pros: "Great staff!"
Pros: "Great service, a lot of legroom"
Cons: "Not really happy about the food choices"
Cons: "Waited on aircraft for over one hour after boarding Flight attendants did not provide any updates or compensation for passengers sitting and waiting See tweets from other passengers on aircanada who experienced the same confusion, lack of updates, inattentive staff, pilot made very few updates and did not instruct flight attendants to do anything to make situation easier Delayed over an hour after we were told flight would be departing Offered pretzels Bathrooms were not cleaned after previous flight (garbages over flowing, stench, water everywhere) No air conditioning in flight Did not turn on wifi for the flight Will be filing a formal complaint and requesting a refund."
Cons: "2 hour delay because of rain west jet and porter were on time but air canada delayed My seat was apparently broken had a window seat with no one else in my row and then I was placed ina Center seat although other options were open The attendant comes on the air and says they need to manually start the engine one by one because the electric start to make it easy was not working All and all not a pleasant experience at all"
Pros: "Crew were very nice and the airplane was modern and well appointed"
Cons: "I seemed to be surrounded by fidgeting people."
Cons: "Old and almost non responsive entertainment screen with unusable interface"
Cons: "After a delay on my first flight, I managed to get to the gate with a few minutes to spare and the door open. The desk agent refused to let me board the plane."
Pros: "Very little was good. I got there safely and that's nice."
Cons: "They lost my luggage for eights days, haven't given me any compensation, every single flight was delayed and no seat upgrades or apologies were given. Never again."
Pros: "The AC in-flight staff are always very nice. It was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "the staff very helpful , respectful, didn't feel rush they had their attention on helping me .Very grateful Thank you all"
Cons: "The plain had been siting at the gate when I arrived 1.5 hours early...trouble was the flight crew did not show up on time. the flight left 2 hours and 45 minutes late. Even after we all boarded, they made an announcement that we were ready to go, but still needed a pilot. If I was this late, I'd be in serious trouble."
Cons: "Information provided on delays was limited and information on connecting by flights was incorrect"
Pros: "The crew was so nice and helpful. They are all wonderful people at LAX and Regina, SK."
Cons: "The plane was hot and cramped. The air didn’t work right causing the flight to be warm and sweaty. My tray table was broken and wasn’t able to hold food and drinks flatly."
Cons: "I ordered vegetarian food, but not shown on list ."
Cons: "Most crowded flight I'VE EVER experienced. Narrow seats and NO legroom! Servicing only complimentary room temp. Water a 3hr trip. Retired now but was flying weekly during my 30 years plus career I'm shocked at the very basic services. Soon you will probably consider and fee for toilet use!"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."
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."
Cons: "Despite being good weather, flight was delayed for almost 6 hours without any explanation given to passengers. I believe the airline cancelled our flight so they can consolidate 2 flights for cost savings.... never fly again with Air Canada"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "I got to my destination an hour after I was supposed to"
Pros: "The crew members were also friendly"
Cons: "The boardung gate was changed but no announcement was made"
Cons: "Constant gate changes. Getting a seat number assigned was tedious"
Pros: "The upgrade with the food, and the entertainment"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and not bossy. Plane was not crowded. Pilot made up most of our lost time (see other box). Ground crew were friendly and efficient in Toronto, getting to me to my departure gate in time. I was pleased to be offered a food voucher."
Cons: "Departure delay of 3 hours from Tel Aviv. Unruly Haredim should be left on the ground in Toronto, not in London. Food voucher was usable at only one outlet, and Burger Ranch is a greasy spoon. Would more choice be too difficult to organize?"
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "The employees recognized our needs, were polite, accommodated easily to french or english, and even told people to clear the boarding area if it wasn't time for their zone to board (a major pet peeve of mine)."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment or food and really small seats. Yeah, you can pay extra for an ipad or to get food, but for most decent flights these days you get at least something to eat for free. Especially on a 7 hour flight from US to CAN. My knees nearly touched the seat in front of me. It wasn't that small of a plane, i just think they really wanted to pack us in. If they removed a row or two and gave everyone just an inch more space how much would that REALLY set them back?"
Pros: "the plane was gorgeous."
Cons: "the place was huge and because everyone carries on it took a VERY long time for people to board and figure out where to put their things, many people couldn't find space for their carry-on luggage."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."
Pros: "I liked the variety of entertainment options on the iPad app."
Cons: "Unless you knew ahead of time that the entertainment system was housed entirely in an app, you wouldn't know that you needed to have a smart phone or tablet on the flight and needed to download the app. A few people in our traveling party either didn't have a smart phone or tablet, or had trouble downloading the app while on the flight. Also, a few people had issues with the app freezing while in use. There was very little legroom between seats, resulting in an uncomfortable flight. We flew economy on our connecting flight, and the seats were much more comfortable. My reading light didn't work using my button, but it turned on & off during the flight like it might have been connected to someone else's button. There weren't individual air vents for passengers, so some of us were very hot and some were very cold."
Pros: "Very nice new plane. The special "natural" lighting made it easier to sleep and wake up."
Cons: "Both flights were significantly delayed and the boarding process for the flight to Tel Aviv for some reason took absolutely forever. Then we waited on the tarmac for almost two hours."
Cons: "Flight was late. The status screens in the Toronto airport depicted incorrect information."
Cons: "I literally walked for 40 minutes across YYJ to make this connection. Security was a breeze, the airport was empty late at night, it was all smooth sailing. This is not a whine about hardship - I was just continuously astonished that I'm still walking! It was amazing! The slightest delay on your incoming flight and you're sunk with that much travel time in between... In this day and age...basically making a US to CA domestic connection is better done through another airport. -Cheers!"
Cons: "Seat pitch is non existent, so are free food or drink options. Very uncomfortable seats, glad my flight was only 2.5 hours. Avoid this airline...go Westjet instead."
Pros: "The crew was nice and understanding"
Cons: "I was stuck up against the back galley with no armrest on the aisle but that was only the beginning when the guy in front reclined his seat the seat back it was dangerously close to my head. In the event of turbulence it would have been easy to sustain a massive blow to the head from the seat in front of me during a whiplash type motion. The person that approved this seating arrangement should be terminated."
Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "Cabin crew were really nice."
Cons: "The media selection was minimal."
Pros: "Ease of using in air entertainment w my own device"
Cons: "Lights, reading, did not work in our row. Very disengaged attendants stats yes that they needed to be reset. When we asked the 3 rd time she said she'd get us a light to use, never did. When requesting extra water and coffee we were directed to the rear of the plane to get our own refills. Toilet not clean paper empty. Crew on long, raucous break. Finally crew seen taking coffee pots into lavatory. What on earth? There was a distinct lack of engagement from the crew, in general with passengers , not just my husband and myself."
Pros: "On time/boarding by zone prevents unnecessary gathering at the boarding area."
Cons: "Air Canada Boarding agent was rude when I inquired about taking an earlier flight. Her reply was, "The boarding for this earlier flight has now closed- even if I were able to get you on, you would be paying a change fee". I'm tired of the attitude of many of the Air Canada boarding agents."
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Customer service was awful and the gate attendant was untrained. We were unable to board the plane."
Pros: "Really took advantage by jacking the prices on return flight changes caused by their cancellation of outbound due to weather Because I had two one way flights, the changes required for the return flight were my problem"
Cons: "Ripoff 500 and two hours of hold time to get acrewed"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "I wanted to see pilots to greet us at the doors! Very important Could not hear announcements clearly We should have option plus"
Pros: "Seats were okay, crew was friendly."
Cons: "They served us one of the least appealing snacks I have ever received on an airplane 9which is obviously saying a lot)-it was some gooey hot pocket chicken creation. No provided entertainment (you can use your own or rent ipads)."
Cons: "they did not have media screens on tans-atlantic fight. Although they did have a network for iPhones, iPads etc., network had very limited options and did not include favorites such as flight maps. Also, food was very basic and breakfast consisted of a piece of banana bread."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "The trip from Toronto to San Francisco was better than the San Francisco trip because the return trip was on a Boeing 747 and a much more comfortable than the Airbus."
Cons: "The Airbus red eye going to Toronto was too cramped so it was not very relaxing. The planes are not clean. I'm glad I have wipes to clean the table tray because it was messy."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfy seats, good communication from Captain, efficient boarding"
Cons: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Entertainment section is poor. Wifi reception is terrible"
Pros: "Absolutly, they let me switch seat"
Cons: "No leg room,"
Cons: "Seats low on padding, no movie options other than the one offered on the public screen"
Cons: "Good tasted so bad, you should try to improve it."
Pros: "The international flights are great. Domestic flight was terrible."
Cons: "The extra cost for luggage is excessive. It was $70 per bag Canadian going there and coming back it jumped to €60 per bag. Buyer beware they charge extra for everything! Domestic flights are mildly better than taking the bus. No inflight entertainment...you need to download the app and content too."
Cons: "Exit seat wasnt a full exit seat just a slightly larger row and did not recline. Seats were smaller than usual too."
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Seats were tiny"
Pros: "Boarding was almost on time. Crew was good."
Cons: "Why did I pay additional $200 dollars to check 1 bag? $70 Canadian there, $50 pounds back (converted to $100 on my bank app.) Ridiculous won't be flying this airline again. Food was terrible - didn't eat. The crew didn't turn off the plane lights to MCR overnight flight, didn't sleep even 1 minute."
Pros: "Old plane so seat pitch was good"
Cons: "Maintenance issues meant a 2 hour delay where we stayed on the plane"
Cons: "Better notification that I was going to be charged £50 for each piece of luggage"
Pros: "Nice crew. Nice flying."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Seats had decent space."
Cons: "Only had limited food so when the staff came, they had nothing left except for junk. Pretty pathetic considering we have to pay for it too. They prefer to let their passengers starve. No entertainment. Wouldn't take air Transat again unless I had no choice."
Cons: "No charging outlet for tablets or cell phones"
Cons: "Had to pay 100$ for an extra bag because I was 4kg over weight then also had to transfer my bags myself during my layover. There was no entertainment on a long haul flight from London to Toronto. And zero space on the lonhaul flight. The least space on a plane I’ve ever had and I fly almost every week. I will never fly air transat again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "The pilot was honest and concerned with the safety of the aircraft. That was most appreciated."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. There was no liquor or even a small snack provided. Minimum service by the flight crew. Most disappointed!"
Cons: "Seats are smaller than other airlines, terrible experience. I felt I was being squeezed the whole time"
Cons: "The seats for Club class are not comfortable."
Pros: "Convenient time ,food was ok and no delay."
Cons: "No plug ,no inflight entertainment ,uncomfortable sits and crew was not overly friendly"
Pros: "Most areas were OK.."
Cons: "They have no control over babies crying but it was quite annoying. The left armrest was broken."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No room. It was clastertphobic. The seat in front was so close you couldn’t move. The screen for the movie was small and far from the seat and everyone’s head was in the way. Difficult for short people like me to see anything. Not very clean. Not enough washrooms."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the complimentary meal, snacks and beverages which where delicious! I was surprised they served so much food throughout the flight! The entertainment was a bonus as every seat had their own TV screen and menu of items to choose from; movies, TV shows, music, games and more!"
Cons: "I liked everything from this flight!"
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight I am greatly indisposed as the hot weather requires frequent change of clothes."
Pros: "Awesome flight and service"
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"
Cons: "Complete scam . Thought I was booking through kayak and was duplicitously sent to justfly.com which is a complete fraud."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "not enough drinks offered during 4 hour flight"
Pros: "The flight was only half full so we got to spread out and have room to stretch out. The crew were very good and the pilot’s comments were appreciated. The crew offered water frequently throughout the flight."
Cons: "My hot meal was lukewarm and the salad was not very good. The snack at the end of the flight was not good. Would have been better to have a muffin and some fruit or yogurt."
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: "Extra empty seats. Good entertainment. Decent service."
Cons: "Non stop noise. Flight attds did nothing to allow sleep througout long flight. Kosher breakfast was a sweet snack- not a meal or even sandwich."
Pros: "Great service, decent food, wonderful staff!"
Cons: "Flight delay, seemed it could have been avoided. Whenever you hear technical reasons it becomes non descriptive and reasons for waiting another 60 min are questionable."
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: "i think the price was reasonable and it was a reliable and on time .We didn't had to pay extra for our meals and suite case."
Cons: "the seat was too close not enough leg room ."
Cons: "9 hour flight and only a few shared tiny screens to watch films on. Terrible and outdated"

Pros: "Stewardesses were great..... Very Helpful"
Cons: "Plane was dated ..... Bathrooms not clean."
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: "Nice new plane with entertainment"
Cons: "Pizza not great. Too many annoying unnecessary announcements"
Cons: "The seats are made for people measuring 5.4 feet Max. I'm only 5.8 and my legs hit the seat in front. The width is even worse. No entertainment. Just few screens like old days. Food? Just coffee or pops. Not even peanuts. You can be cheap but not that much."
Pros: "bel atterrissage smooth, staff gentils. Vraiment bien."
Cons: "Un peu froid dans l'avion. Je ne filais pas cela n'a pas aidé mais les autres passagers aussi ont mis un manteau."
