The plane was delayed, and we almost didn’t have the time to catch our connection flight
Pros: "Food and drinks provided were really appreciated especially the wine/beer and hot meals on the long flight."
Cons: "Not enough leg room etc. for long flights. Cushions and blankets were nice."
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: "Cancellation with little notice and rebooked on flight two days later."
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: "Space, food and entertainment"
Cons: "It was late 20min"
Pros: "Both going and returning flights left and arrived on time. The crew were good. Boarding and unloading went fast and efficiently and bags arrived fairly quickly and not damaged."
Cons: "The rouge entertainment system didn’t work. It seems like it’s old technology that was used when only some passengers used it. Now every seat has a device trying to log in. System just can’t support the high volumn of use. It worked on the return flight but most passengers were sleeping."
Pros: "ground crew were friendly"
Pros: "Great cabin crew."
Cons: "Huge delay without explanation."
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "Flight attendant very pleased"
Cons: "Can't use the entertainment, the jack to connect the headset was broken"
Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"
Pros: "Japan airport departing on time."
Cons: "No backseat entertainment Entertainment streamed through Wifi which got cut off constantly. Seat is hard"
Pros: "Air Canada's airplane cleanliness is second to none in my book. That's why I always fly with them... Or rather flew..."
Cons: "The unending stream of excuses and explanations failed to convince me that this was anything but mismanagement that caused a delay of 5 hours. We'd be told something, and told the exact opposite, or a contradicting statement 15 minutes later. You botched this one bad Air Canada."
Pros: "Schedule The flight departed Jamaica on time and arrived in Canada a few minutes ahead of scheduled time."
Cons: "The meal had to be paid for separately. This was not a major issue though."
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."
Cons: "flight was cancelled after being loaded and pulled away from the terminal. waited for over 2 hours on the tarp and then they said the crew had run out of time and could not fly. They took us off of the plane and did not rebook us. It took everyone over two hours to get rebooked for the next day or even two days later. They almost had a revolt on their hand since they did not have a representative talk to us until the passengers started yelling at them. Very poor customer service. Just horrible."
Pros: "Very comfortable and clean aircraft. Friendly crew. Seats at the front of Economy had excellent legroom. Helpful flight announcements from the captain."
Cons: "Air Canada has only one gate at Houston, which appears to be in constant use, at least in the early afternoon. If one flight is delayed in departure, it causes a backup with other flights."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. For the most part crew was friendly."
Cons: "I'm 5'2" med. built and felt the seats cramped with little leg space. My seat had cold water dripping down onto my head and neck from the vent above the window. The flight attendant's response was "it will stop after a little bit". Disappointing."
Pros: "the seat beside me was open"
Cons: "they made us rush through customs while yellig at us nd being very condescending then we waited an hour to board because the airport door wouldn't open for the crew"
Pros: "I didn't have any food, so I can't speak for that; but it was the most relaxing and comfortable flight I've ever had in economy. Crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Flight was late. The status screens in the Toronto airport depicted incorrect information."
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: "The crew- very pleasant and attentive. Also the lady that checked us in at the airport in Barcelona was super helpful and tried her best to get us 2 seats together . She even blocked the seat in the middle of us!"
Cons: "No Entertainment - no screens for such a long flight"
Cons: "Kayak failed to notify us of a change in our flight of four hours and change of route"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "Entertainment on this flight was comparatively better than the flight we took from LAX to Toronto...Snacks was also better on this flight than the LAX to Toronto flight which really confuses me as to why?"
Cons: "The wait time though for our flight was 6 hours and there were 2 or 3 other earlier flights to LAX that day.."
Pros: "Again, the entertainment options were the best part of the flight."
Cons: "It was a short flight, but it was still very cold. I didn't ask for any changes because of my previous experience, so I just wrapped up as well as I could and bore the chilliness. The crew was less than friendly."
Pros: "A fine flight, considering how small the plane was."
Cons: "Boring food. Better than none at all, I suppose. I had the vegan option. Perhaps they are trying to discourage vegetarians from eating on the plane at all? It took half an hour on the phone to even arrange it."
Cons: "Canada Airlines lost my luggage and I still don't have it."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The fact that all of our baggage has managed to disappear"
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "No problem"
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "Loved the great GPS display."
Pros: "Air Canada's cabin attendents make the journey bearable. Keep these people at all costs, becauae they are doing a fantastic job."
Cons: "I prefer the old-fashioned seatback monitor to rental ipads."
Cons: "The departure postponed several times. The comfort in those parts of Toronto and Dulles airport which us Canada express is absent at all. There are no even seats enough for all passengers."
Pros: "Quick flight, well-done!"
Pros: "Good service, very attentive. Breakfast needs improvement"
Cons: "The middle seat is horrible, no room to even bend over to reach my bag which was at my feet. Very uncomfortable and no room to put the elbows because the other two seats take the elbow rests . Make it a double one or something because I couldn't even fall asleep for a second plus I got a back ache throughout the"
Cons: "They charged us 25 dollars for a carry on bag which was unfair. They didn't charge anyone else. When I came back I was not charged. I would like a refund. The people were very rude! I take that bag on trips weekly. I should have not been charged."
Pros: "Glad for this new route. Will make Europe easier to access from PDX."
Pros: "Great crew, delicious samosas! Awesome selection of movies"
Cons: "I'm skinny but tall and it is my opinion that these seats are uncomfortably small/narrow The room UNDER the seats is smaller than in other planes as well, so it's tougher to stow your gear"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Food was bad."
The plane was so old and dirty and honestly needs to be discontinued.
Really uncomfortable seating
I’m glad this flight had a snack service as this flight generally only has non-alcoholic beverage service. The Canadair regional 200 jet is one of the worst aircraft experiences you can ride, but it’s better than flying the Dash 8.
Cons: "Delay. I lost my first flight and almost the second as well"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is provided through a screen in front of your seat. There are many different channels to browse."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Cookies were aweful"
Pros: "Nice and courteous crew"
Cons: "Better on increased International viewing options."
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "Crew flight attendant was nice the whole trip. Other places they aren't always so warm or nice when you leave. Flight was pretty."
Cons: "Nobody was checking tickets for checked bags we deboarded."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Better foods and free entertainment (movies..)"
Pros: "We seemed to fly faster to make up time"
Cons: "The seats are jokingly small and very uncomfortable. The boarding space was also small so the lines became very unorganized"
Pros: "Nothing at all!!! That should really tell you something!"
Cons: "The staff were rude, abrasive, ignored several passengers that were trying to get her attention before take off as 2 overhead bins were wide open and full to the brim. She of course was too busy playing on her cell phone in the back of the plane and ignored/silenced the passenger call button. They were so loud when people were sleeping, yelling ‘trash please’ every 5 minutes, we are not stupid, we can see what you are doing and if we have trash, we will give it to you - so please STOP disturbing my peace and let me bloody sleep!!!! I was never offered any food or drink during the entire flight, not even when I was awake - other airline attendants are more observant and come back and ask us when we are awake if we would like anything to eat or drink. So essentially that was 7 hours with nothing after having paid a little over $700 for what was seemingly the WORST transatlantic flight I’ve ever taken. I travel back and forth often, because I’m a dual national, but I will stick to BA or Virgin Atlantic - the planes and service are far superior to this pile of turd that goes by the name of United. There were no charging facilities (power outlet or USB port) and the TVs had such horrendous resolution that you would get a headache from having to squint at the screen."
Pros: "The seats food drinks and comfortable chairs."
Cons: "There was a delay."
Pros: "The orderly fashion the airline boarded!"
Pros: "Traveling from SJU to GSP, my mom got to the airport in SJU for her 1am flight. To find out it had been canceled. No call or email before hand, the had to wait until 2am to change the flight and get a hotel voucher. After that, next day they board the plane and de-board the plane due to mechanical problems. Another night and just a couple of 10 vouchers. She never received an explanation or recompense for loosing part of her trip in the san juan airport. This is the second time ahe has gone thru this in the same year with United. Awful experinece."
Cons: "No warning for cancelation. No explanation of what is happening and no effort to make it better."
Pros: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "Didn't find out about the delay until we were almost ready to board. No planning."
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the female crew member was rude."
Pros: "The comfort of first class was very good."
Cons: "The flight attendant was working her tail off, but she was struggling to keep up with the first class passengers due to the limited time to get service items out."
Cons: "Snack was terrible"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
Pros: "Missed connection to RDU"
Cons: "Had to pay out of pocket for a hotel to catch next flight to RDU"
Pros: "I am 6'1 so I wish could have afforded 1st class, but I am grateful to the desk staff who made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Great movies. Good food."
Cons: "The tightness of the seats."
Cons: "Very poor entertainment"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Delayed leaving PSP. Delayed landing at SFO. THREE AND A HALF HOUR delay leaving SFO!!! FINALLY landed in RDD at 7:30 PM!!! Rental car counter CLOSED AT 5:30! STRANDED AT AIRPORT TIL AFTER 9 PM, when hotel shuttle could come get me! Missed seeing my mother, who is in a Skilled Nursing Facility here -- THE ENTIRE REASON FOR MY TRIP! And now I can't see her this morning either, because I have to take the hotel shuttle BACK TO THE AIRPORT to pick up the rental car that I PAID IN ADVANCE TO RESERVE BEGINNING YESTERDAY!!!"
Cons: "Not a crew or airline issue, but strong winds made for three attempted landings."
Pros: "Iad to Boston on board attendants"
Cons: "Flight timing excellent"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."
Pros: "Considering the rough weather "winds", the flight should have been riddled with turbulence from start to finish. Lucky for us, the pilot was so talented that everyone on board would have never known that we were passing through severe weather if they hadn't announced it over the PA."
Pros: "The upgrade to first class, courteous staff, on time arrival, timing of the flight for a red eye. *Note I paid for the upgrade to first class. Totally worth it!"
Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "They would not honor their refund policy with proper documentation submitted four weeks in advance."
Pros: "I recently flew Icelandic Air, on a Winglet. It was tiny, and no service like United. United was pleasant, wheelchair right there except one time. I like the Boston to SF flight, aisle seat, huge aisles, no one looked uncomfortable, bathroom kept immaculate, and small plane to Burbank excellent, I even had whole aisle to myself."
Cons: "The flight back to Boston, as mentioned. But Icelandic Air had tv screens on back of seats, so during the very long journey, you could track your flight, look at movies, for free, and beautiful,music selections. I wish United had that. My cell phone was not working great, so had no entertainment"
Pros: "Having a ride from the east coast to the west coast."
Cons: "Going west to Chicago - no attendant personnel ready to fly out of Chicago. Flight delay. Chicago to SFO - inflight toilet equipment failure resulting in a 3 hr delay. How long does it take to check the toilet while the plane is on the ground?"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could with the cards that were dealt."
Cons: "Delay the flight next time instead of trapping a completely sold out plane on board with very little ac if any at the gate. Totally could have been avoided with some forethought. Kind of surprised at how this was handled in an industry that is attempting to avoid passenger incidents etc."
Pros: "The personal tv"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra fee just to watch whatever I wanted"
Cons: "Flight was one and a half hours late taking off and caused me to miss my next flight,my luggage was lost. I had to take other flights and I eventually arrived home 6 hours later than I had anticipated."
Pros: "The plane was really nice, clean, seats comfortable."
Cons: "When we landed in LAX it took a good 45mns to taxi to the exit. I was just tired at that point. After the big delay in Denver. That part was safe, I get it. The taxi part ...I wouldn't have really thought about it, but after speaking to several people...they said that LAX is doing that a lot."
Cons: "The 777-200 is geting old"
Pros: "Staff and comfort good."
Cons: "Samething no help to my flights or cabin."
Pros: "Staff is always friendly"
Cons: "We never boarded on time. Houston to Orlando was a nightmare."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and caring"
Cons: "MY SEAT WAS CHANGED WITHOUT EVEN ASKING ME The flight was 3 hrs delayed There was crying babies on board so I couldn't even get some rest"
Cons: "The délayer that was due to The weather"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, very accommodating, even to some not so flexible passengers."
Cons: "The plane is so small. There were several men that could not even stand up and one poor guy beside me that was absolutely wedged into his seat."
Pros: "About as comfortable as a trans-pacific flight gets in economy class. Plenty of leg room, great entertainment choices, surprisingly good food - and plenty of it, by the time breakfast came around I was actually too full to eat it!"
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy.. crumbs on seats debris on floors. Dirty arm rest and seat backs"
Cons: "I received somewhat bad service at every point of contact with United. My flight was canceled in Houston, so I forced to stay overnight. I asked the rep at the customer service station if United pays for a hotel room if our flight gets canceled, I was told no. There were several canceled flights, do all the hotels were booked in the area. It was up to me to call every hotel in a 10 mile radius at midnight to find a room. I had to come out of pocket 150 dollars for the room and I missed work the following day due to my canceled flight. I was forced to stay in a hotel room with none of my clean clothes, no toiletries. I was told by a united rep, "we get off at midnight so you won't be able to get your suitcase today". All in all, it was one of the worst flying experiences I have ever had. I would like some one to call or email me."
Pros: "We finally got to Chicago.... In one piece!"
Cons: "The delay, the plane changed so the seat assignments changed but we were not given new boarding passes, A MESS!"
