Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase. An awful awful trip thanks to American Airlines.
Pros: "I like that I paid for a first class seat with no first class service."
Cons: "Suspended food is a rip off, I flew this same leg a month and a half ago got food, what changed, NOTHING...I have flown AA for 20plus years. I never got credit for that flight either. I am aware safety first but what does it really have to do with QUALITY of the Airline. Still love yah tho."
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane."
Cons: "Wish we had beverage service back soon."
Pros: "the seats are ok, but service was awful"
Cons: "the fight attendants attitude"
Pros: "Crew was great. Made it to destination 39 minutes earlier than expected"

Cons: "Tried to cancel the flight because of an emergency but American only wants money."
Cons: "Just about everything"
Cons: "Had to change our plans, and AA wouldn't give us a refund. We never got on the plane but had to pay for the tickets anyway. I'll never fly AA again."
Cons: "Too small of a plane for that long a flight. Cabin was too damn hot."
Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "The plane could have been cleaner"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "4.5 hour flight to international destination and no meal provided. As usual, if you want a snack pay more. Slow chaotic boarding."
Pros: "emergency landing upon returning to JFK"
Pros: "Very kind flight attendant. Flight on time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."
Cons: "Free lugagge for veterans. We have made our sacrifice."
Pros: "Robbie and Carlos were exceptional. The gate agents were exceedingly rude and I will be filing a formal complaint."
Cons: "Gate agents"
Pros: "I really enjoyed kicking back and watching —- **EXCUSE ME EVERYONE ........ JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW.......... WE’RE GOING TO BE LANDING IN A COUPLE OF HOURS IN BEAUTIFUL..... SUNNY.... LOS ANGELES.... WHERE THE TEMPERATURE IS A PERFECT..... 72 DEGREES..... FAHERENHEIT** —-a couple of movies."
Cons: "*ding We Are GoingToBeLanding In Two Hours. *ding* I noticed there were a number of anno — *JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW.... THAT WE MAY EXPERIENCE SOME TURBULENCE.... BUT WE SHOULD BE LANDING A LITTLE EARLY..... IN ABOUT AN HOUR AND 45 MINUTES... YOU SHOULD REACH YOUR DESTINATION.... IN BEAUTIFUL... SUNNY... LOS ANGELES...* —uncements in the middle of watching a movie. And it seem — *ding* Some TurbulenceMayOccur PleaseFascenSeatBelts. FlightAndCrew PleasePrepareForLanding in OneHour and FortyFive Minutes *ding* —ed difficult to relax and pay attention to that movie. It sorta seemed like the pilot wanted us to — *ALRIGHT EVERYONE WE’RE EXPERIENCING SOME TURBULENCE HERE.... JUST WANTED TO LET YOU ALL KNOW.... TO FASCEN YOUR SEATBELTS..... AND PLEASE REMAIN SEATED* —pay attending to him instead of the movie or whatever other people were doing."
Pros: "Well the food was very good. Which i didn't expect how good it was. And the crew were nice people."
Cons: "well we were delayed twice. One in Schiphol and the other in Philly. Wasted my time and everyone elses."
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Cons: "Leaving MKE was organized and orderly. No problems noted. Once in PHL, flight was delayed due to no crew. After an hour or so, boarded the plane. Was on the plane for 45 minutes with no explaination from the crew. It was an electrical problem. Had to inboard and wait 45 more minutes. Allow weld to rehoard again. Waited another 20 ministrations before leaving. I am all for safety, but communications need to improve."
Cons: "Horable...never ever use AA"
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was an issue where someone had boarded and somehow taken my seat. I was asked to wait until the very end and then allowed in my seat once the passenger in my designated seat was asked to deboard the plane. I don't know how that could have happened."
Cons: "2 hour late departure. could not get there story strait on why the delay, finally they went with weather delay. steward reminded me of a bunch of people unhappy with there jobs. need to work on customer service"
Pros: "Entertainment and personnel."
Cons: "Very tight economy seats (and I am a small woman)."
Cons: "Lack of leg room, no personal entertainment, poor snack options"
Pros: "Staff did good jobn"
Cons: "No movie screens on overseas flight. I called day before departure and they couldn’t even tell me yes or no on that question."
Pros: "Best fligh I had in some time. Left on time, arrived early very attentitive crew (with smiles as they worked through the rear cabin - wish I had their names to give recognition for/to). Food rating should have had a ‘NA’ as I nor partner did not consume any food."
Cons: "Can’t think of one thing - unless a flying saucer could have delivered me like in about 5 minutes to Cabo! Ok - maybe one thing: charging for a checked bag on international flight seems rediculous (you asked)."
Cons: "The food options on the brochure were not available, flight attendants had bad attitude and negative vibe"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and responsive."

Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "Entertainment service and film variety was good"
Cons: "Seats are too small, no place for my legs"

Cons: "delayed on the plane"
Pros: "Very nice flight. Nothing unexpected."
Cons: "Seat was awkward. Staff didn't respond to 2 calls of with the button. Air seemed exceptionally dry and was oddly warm."
Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."
Pros: "The experience was average."
Cons: "While the brakes/ tires issue was not their fault, it's much more helpful to post a 2 hour delay (and surprise us with an earlier boarding) than checking with mechanics every 15 minutes with updates announced but no projected departure time!"
Cons: "I had my reservation cancelled despiste numerous phone calls. The flight was operated by AA, and they told me I wasn't on the flight, but after many phone calls LATAN assured me I was booked on the flight. When I got to the airport, I was not allowed to board my direct flight from GRU to LAX, instead I was sent to Miami then Charlestown , I took me an extra 12 hours to get home. I lost a day of work. Who's going to reimburse me for that ???"
Pros: "Good foot room."
Cons: "The Crew were incredibly rude, and the pilot was unapologetic for being late coming back. They offered little to no comfort. They replied rudely to people when they asked them to repeat themselves because they couldn't hear. They were not very helpful and seemed annoyed and irritable. The plane was uncomfortable and the screens in front of me were useless because they were so low quality. The air craft has an option for fax but has no USB charger or port for a 10 hour flight. The aircraft I was on was not fit for that long of a distance."
Cons: "AA worst airline People They have working in SFO Incompetent Rude Useless"
Cons: "Crew was not skilled or kind in dealing with others around me. Had the finesse of a frustrated 10 year old when asking other to check their bags."
Cons: "Terribly disorganized with security checks and confusion since no organized area to hold people."
Pros: "The flight was boarded well in advance of takeoff, which was a pleasant surprise. The short flight was smooth and uneventful. I enjoyed a free movie, and then we were back on the ground."
Pros: "Crew is great!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We were on the runway for one hour and Calgary was not notified so we could not make our connecting flight even though room on the plane. On the flight an hour later we were on the plane for three hours but the weather prevented takeoff. Now we are sleeping in the airport until 6 am. So I think communication needs to be improved"
Pros: "Food and crew excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process delayed as groups 3-6 all lined up together. No air at seats"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
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."
Pros: "because of the cancellation the night before I was expecting chaos. But everyone was friendly and in great spirits. No issues. Way to keep it kool!"
Pros: "Seats and plane condition"
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: "More opportunities to eat Tim hortons"
Cons: "Having to wait 24hra to leave Canada"
Pros: "Riws nuch too close together. There should be a notice in the boarding area for passengers to download app so they can access on board movies. Or even better this should be included with ticket."
Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."
Cons: "The worst flight I have ever had. I am tall and this large plane was fit only for dwarfs. My knees were jammed into the seat in front of me and I could not move during the 3.5 hour duration. As a result of this experience I will NEVER fly air canada again. From now on it's whatever airline can treat it's customers with dignity."
Pros: "The crew, the smooth safe flight, the cleanliness"
Cons: "The flight was delayed!! Very inconvenient."
Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."
Cons: "Canceled flight , delayone day , I should rebook by myself by calling the air canada call center I will considre next time when reseving with Air Canada , and Kayak because you didn't even know what happen with me , I took flight to London next day since my flight was canceled"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We are people, just be kind. Asking to be treated in a friendly respectful manner seems to be impossible for Air Canada! I thought Canada was known to be friendly and polite, if that’s true, Air Canada should change its name! They are experts at treating people unnecessarily badly. It’s shocking to witness and harsh and rude shouldnt be descriptors of any company’s customer service agents, especially one who represents a country!!"
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Crew on flight from Toronto to San Jose were friendly. Crew on home flight very aloof."
Cons: "Did not know you should pre book food. They ran out. Very frustrating. Said they had breakfast food and snacks. All that was left by the time they got to our seats were chips and nuts. And they didn’t seem to care. Entertainment worked better on way back. Could not get it going on way there, even with crew assistance. Line ups for check in in San Jose were crazy. Over 40 minutes."
Pros: "The tvs are awesome! They are new and have touchscreens that are actually well designed and can scroll etc. Resolution and sound are great, so I actually feel like I watched my movie and didn't just look at moving blurs with half the dialogue missing. Also the USB ports are great. And the brownie with the meal was delicious."
Cons: "Only one meal on a >9 hour flight, plus one snack which was an uninspiring-looking rectangle of cold pumpkin loaf (it tasted good, but after 7.5 hours in the air it'd be nice to get something more appealing). Other airlines give two meals. It's ridiculous that Air Canada insists on being so stingy with the food."
Pros: "general state and size and comfort of the plane. Overall AC experience always good. The flight back to montreal, the service was exceptional!"
Cons: "only a dairy plate available, next time I need to specify no dairy entertainment -- too many ads and no previews for the movies so I have to start playing then stop and go through the entire same series of ads for the next one. the system just seems clunky and antiquated in today's tech age."
Cons: "Temperature varied widely throughout the flight. Entertainment system down for over an hour. No fresh food left for the back of the plane - Late departure."
Pros: "Very personable and welcoming crew on plane"
Cons: "Ground crew a little curt"
Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT DIDN'T HOLD MY CONNECTION - MISSED BY JUST 15 MIN SEATS NOT COMFORTABLE - PREMIUM ECONOMY NOT WORTH THE EXTRA COST"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, uncomfortable seats, not recommended."
Pros: "I have limited mobility and I was very well taken care of by the crew."
Cons: "flught was fine."
Pros: "courteous, helpful cabin crew on-flight entertainment gave abundant options"
Cons: "flight delayed because departure gate usurped by a Virgin America flight. inadequate seating area; too few seats; passengers boarding VA flight entered through seating area instead of directly."
Cons: "The type of planes they use "Rouge" are too small, even for business class passengers. Seating & legroom is like upgraded economy, not business."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, pretty typical for LAX. But we also had to take a bus from the terminal to the plane over 2 miles away, which wasn't ideal."
Cons: "I called customer service to ask questions about the meal options, and for both flights (14.5 hrs) they signed me up for the wrong meals! The staff on the first flight was extremely rude and unhelpful, and refused to let me eat any of the extra meals. Making matters worse, I had asked customer service when I called if they sell food on the flight, which I was told yes. This turned out to be untrue. I had to survive the 14.5 hour flight by only eating 3 tiny bags of pretzels. I sent an email to customer service to complain about this (can't do this over the phone), and didn't hear back for more than a month. On my return international flight, I was AGAIN signed up for the wrong meal (vegan) even though I specifically went over my dietary preference (vegetarian, eats eggs and dairy). Then my luggage was left in Vancouver while I made my way to Sydney, so I had to wear the same clothes for over 72 hrs while the airline "apologized" with giving me only $50. I finally got someone to respond to my complaints when I tweeted them, and their response was that I selected the vegan food option...NOPE, and that's not an apology. I will not fly them again. (PS: they don't give eye masks or toothbrush/toothpaste on international flights even though other airlines do, and their selection of movies/TV shows is about half of other airlines)"
Pros: "Air Canada ground crew where very good and helpful as where all staff"
Cons: "Plane was overly cramped, if you eliminate one set of seats and only had 8 across and less row, I think you would make great improvements to overall customer satisfaction if the seating was mad alittle more comfortable"
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Payable ''snacks'' on a 6 hour flight. Come on! Charge 20-30$ more on the ticket and serve a decent meal. Entertainment is lousy."
Cons: "Flight was late. The status screens in the Toronto airport depicted incorrect information."
Pros: "Crew was professional. Plane was clean"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Very cramped and I am only 5'2""
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Everytime I have flown air canada they are behind schedule and so unorganized with boarding and their snack suck not everyone likes pretzels. Other air lines I have flown with Opperator much more smoothly offer pretzels or cookies and are on time"
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: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Was put on standby for a flight I purchased a full ticket to, had to wait for an hour by the terminal to make sure I got a ticket, which meant I had no time to get any food. Would only take credit card on the plane so I went without eating all day. Headphone jack was broken, meaning tv was useless"
Pros: "Seats are confortable, meals good and the crew are very nice"
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff, fuss-free boarding, good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Plane could have been slightly cleaner (eg replace old, ratty in-flight magazines). Food was reasonable but a bit bland."
Cons: "Different treatment for persenger. Equal things should be treated equally."
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew"
Cons: "Connection was a hectic with staff sending up and down to get our boarding passes. TSA had short lines but long wait and a lot of attitude."
Cons: "Customer service flight rebooking"
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Pros: "Extra leg room even though I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "Long wait at the Claims Dept. because my luggage was broken."
Cons: "Flight was over two hour late. Customer service did nothing to help. Suggested I figure out my connection in Los Angeles. Get on the plane and the entertainment system not working. No one willing to help. Land in Los Angeles and had to wait 20 minutes for a gate. So not only did I miss my connection flight, I have to wait until tomorrow to see if I can get on a flight"
Cons: "Once again over an hour late due to maintenance issues. Air Canada uses a subcontractor airline for their Cincinnati flights that has a horrible track record. AVOID!"
Cons: "Especially the crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and then when we boarded, were told that the flight would be delayed again . . . and then informed that the flight was canceled. The staff did not know what was happening, and kept us on the plane for almost 2 hours, before letting us off and telling us there were no hotels available. It was a nightmare experience transferring in Toronto. The crew did what they could, but they were largely kept in the dark too."
Cons: "We arrived from Rome at 3:30 - we wouldn't have made our 5:25 flight to Boston if I hadn't contacted an agent 2 times stating we were STILL in the security line"
Pros: "Boarding and food was good"
Cons: "Entertainment options were out of date and"
Pros: "The direct connection between Toronto and Madrid, since we travel at least once a year or more to Spain The staff on ground and on board were simply excellent, communicated well in Spanish, French and English The food and drinks (wine) were excellent and plentiful."
Cons: "The coffee could be a bit stronger (Spanish style)"
