On time even early. Excellent flight.
Wish there could be real food served.
Cons: "Travelling to Lagos constitute of about 75% Nigerian, it would have been better in term of entertainment to include films and music from Nigeria or African in your entertainment list"
Pros: "The plane ride was very smooth. Slept the entire way which was nice."
Pros: "I had a safe flight and enjoyed the movies available to me."
Cons: "Better care of luggage and better customer service"
Cons: "No ear plugs offered and my iPhone jack didn’t fit."
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling. The boarding rear to front should have been in place years ago and the deplaning was about normal front to rear with distancing."
Pros: "Crew was extremely hostile and rude"
Cons: "Smile and treat black individuals better"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and it was a day fast flight."
Cons: "No back of seat entertainment."
Cons: "I had a flight with a connection starting at 6 PM on a Monday. At 5 AM the day of the flight I received notification that the first flight would be delayed, making connection impossible, I was prompted to select another flight to arrive to my destination. I chose a flight with a connection staring at 7 PM. Upon getting on the first flight we began to prepare for takeoff. After about 30 minutes the pilot notified us that we would be delayed 40 minutes because we had nowhere to land at my connection airport. I realized at that point that I would possibly miss my connection, which was scheduled at 10:20 PM. However, I did arrive at the connection airport around 9:40 PM which would have given just enough time to arrive at the connection gate. Unfortunately, upon arrival to the connection airport the pilot informed us that we would have no gate to de-board the plane. The pilot stated that all connections "were aware of our delay" and gave us the gates for each connection. I got off the plane at 10:15 PM and ran to my connection gate arriving exactly at 10:20. The gate attendants informed me that my flight had left, my bags were on the way to my destination city and that I would need to spend the night in the connection city. The attendants, appeared disinterested and impolite but upon prompting provided us with a hotel voucher for the night. The next day we arrived at the airport 2 hours before boarding and waited at the gate. When it was near the time for departure we were informed that the plane had been downgraded and requests were made for some to give up their seats for a later flight or check carryon bags to make room for other passengers. While some lined up to give up their seats and bags, those who chose to remain on the original flight were forced to wait before boarding the plane. We were then told that we would have to wait until the pilot and crew arrived before boarding. Scheduled departure time was 5:46 PM but the time got pushed back until we boarded around 6:30, departure was rescheduled to 6:50 PM. We boarded the plane and waited for departure but a few minutes later the pilot informed us that "he just got here" and that there were mechanical problems that would cause further delay. After an hour we were informed that the plane was not able to fly and instructed to go to another gate for another plane. Departure time got rescheduled to 8:30 PM. The plane departed after 9 PM and arrived at 10:30 PM for a 5:46 PM scheduled departure."
Pros: "Super friendly staff, great service and delicious food. The competition has nothing compared to Delta. We’re switching"
Pros: "I think Delta is upping its game, and I’m pleased to see that. Almonds for snacks, phone info about the state of your checked bags—good stuff."
Cons: "Of course the seat was not “super comfortable,” but whe you pick Economy, you know that."
Cons: "Always need more room"
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Even though they were just serving water and coffee. The attendant took it upon himself to retrieve the Ginger Ale i requested!"

Cons: "Nothing my timing was a bit off it all worked out well"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"

Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."
Pros: "Great free movie selection"

Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "Send my carry on bag, outside."
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Pros: "Free movies helped the time fly by. Stewardess, or whatever the PC word us now, Britt was awesome"
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Pros: "The time it takes from Atlanta to VPS is not long trip at all. The crew was courteous and glad to take off and land safely. Thanks to the Delta crew."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "No earphones available. I had forgotten mine but crew stated that none had been put on the flight. Lunch was served but no snacks later as is usual on an almost 4 hr flight. I always fly First Class for the extra room and perks of crew service. Crew spent most time in galley chatting. Not a bad flight by any means but I guess I have been spoiled by superior service on all of my other weekly Delta flights."
Pros: "Delta employees knew what they were doing in PV"
Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Pros: "Smooth flight and always a plus to see a beautiful smile throughout the trip from our Flight Attendant Stefany!"
Pros: "Nice power nap, quick flight!"
Pros: "Good entertainment with games for kids, movies etc."
Cons: "No meals (5+ of flying), need to buy earphones, no place for hand lauggudge"
Pros: "The crew from SYD to LAX was absolutely excellent! The food is always plenty and hot, and I really appreciate being given a whole bottle of water. Also, thank you for leaving snacks out for us especially those who sleep through the meal service. Very satisfied with the airline so far!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, crew, entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough lavatories, space is crazy small and the time should be changes. Arriving at 8am after spending half day awake is crazy. Unless you sleep the entire flight wI think no food no restroom."
Pros: "everthing went well"
Cons: "Price of food"
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
To hot befor the flight departure. And the food is very poor quality, the bread doesn’t test fresh.
Cons: "The seats are very tight, no tv, the rest of it wonderful"
Pros: "Crew were trying but non of them spoke English"
Cons: "I have never had such a terrible experience like this one"
Pros: "Great value for price!!! Food was mediocre, but isn’t all airline food mediocre?? Staff was friendly and spoke many different languages to accommodate all of us."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little old and needing replaced. Would have been nice to have a more comfortable seat for an overnight international flight."
Pros: "Premier class services."
Cons: "entertainment and toilet cleanest."
Cons: "Traveling with another airline!"
Pros: "Very nice crew especially when I got sick. Entertainment was also good."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. There should have been ac, easy access to water and a bathroom once through gate security. Also out of our group of five, three of us were moved up to business class. It was nice that they got that but it would’ve been more fair if the whole group could have also."
Pros: "The crew was amazing but the space very poorly"
Cons: "Could be better with more space and bigger seats"
Pros: "Everything ok, nothing that I say wow"
Cons: "The crew didn't go an extra mile for me. I forgot my kindle in the first plane. When boarding the connection flight an hour later, I told a crew so she would contact the other plane crew to locate it, but she told me to deal with it when we land. At landing the kindle was nowhere to be found."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Food options ran out twice and it tasted terrible. Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Bad bad “ breakfast “ They promised me a boucher of $300 for the delay in Miami but I still whaiting for the response of the email more than a month"
Pros: "If you get in line early, there might be overhead bin space."
Cons: "Seats are awful. FAs don't want to speak slowly so you can understand them or English, basically saying they don't care. Every Copa flight I have taken is a late departure."
Cons: "food and entertainment, check-in in Rio de Janeiro was awful."
Pros: "The crewman were extremely friendly, very professional team!"
Pros: "The flight attendants where and are amazing.. the service was the best. Highly recommend to fly with “copa”"
Cons: "I don’t think I did not like anything to be honest."
Pros: "Convenient times."
Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Pros: "Flight made it on time, exactly as scheduled, despite a delay during boarding of almost 1/2 an hour. But other than that, good flight."
Cons: "Boarding and takeoff were delayed almost 1/2 an hour."
Pros: "The flight from Rio to Panama was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."
Pros: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Cons: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Pros: "Meal was good and plane was clean and well maintained."
Cons: "Just a little tight but overall good"
Pros: "Free alcohol (not just beer and wine) and decent dinner on the flight from BOS to PTY. Flights were on time and my two pieces of checked luggage made it through no problem. Crew seemed friendly."
Cons: "Airplane interior was spotlessly clean, but is a bit of a throwback (cloth seats that seemed kind of small). Don't expect entertainment screens or charging ports, although my connecting flight did have these. Depends on which plane you get, I suppose. I couldn't hear anything the pilot was saying over the loudspeaker. Hopefully they can upgrade their fleet. BTW if you have a choice of doing a really long layover at the Panama airport, don't. Crappy amenities with nothing but overpriced American fast food."
Pros: "Food was tasty and served quickly ...staff was friendly and extremely polite"
Cons: "The usual with all planes when you fly economy ...cramped seats"
Cons: "One bathroom was dirty since the beggining of the flight and could not be used."
Pros: "Tv's and that there were 2 open seats next to me."
Cons: "Food is atrocious."
Pros: "Went by quick, great staff"
Pros: "I bought a return ticket from Panama City to Rio on Kayak and was not notified that a Yellow Fever shot was necessary for re-entry to Panama. Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."
Pros: "Short flight, nice snack."
Pros: "All it is fine"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Boarding on time Good attention by crew. They were very kind. Movies were so good"
Cons: "I did'nt like the dinner. The taste of chicken wasn't good.. Also, the potatoes and beans were raw. El red wine was vinegary"
Cons: "Too much complain whit my carry on"
Cons: "Only the spaghetti was edible and the salad only had 2 ingredients. Also would appreciate changing up the entertainment options from leaving my destination to going to it."
Pros: "They gave me a blanket"
Cons: "7 hours flight without individual TV."
Pros: "Arrived at the gate about 1 hour before departure due to heavy traffic. Attendant was pleasant and did a quick checkin."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "terrible food"
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "I️ think the crew could have come around with drinks more than once in a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."
Cons: "They do not have a way to order vegetarian food on their website so I did not eat on either flight, which was really frustrating."
Pros: "I love Copa. I fly between PTY and LAX every 6 months and don't even think of booking with another airline. The men and women that work for Copa are always friendly and do their best to help. And you are always on time!"
Cons: "I found it very disconcerting that the custom forms were not given out before final approach,it felt very rushed."
Pros: "The short stops"
Cons: "Delay en our flight"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Small airplane with no updated entertainment system"
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"
Cons: "The crew, and the plane is very old not fit, for a such,long flight"
Cons: "We had to go through security 3 times, our flight was delayed 1.5 hours and we were not allowed to bring water on the plane. We have also been taxing on the runway for 30mins so I missed my transfer home. I would likely never fly cops again."
Pros: "When they booked me on another airline after making me wait 36 hours and finally admitting it was their mistake they inadvertently cancelled my reservation."
Cons: "They intolerant, unprofessional, they overbook flights and blame the passenger, they don't help you when this happens, they cancelled my booking and tried to blame me, they act as if they have a right to treat a customer like garbage. Don't EVER book a flight with this company. If you do you are taking a huge risk."
Cons: "El abordaje"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"
Cons: "Always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef."
Pros: "The confort and food!."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants that made noise taking her luggage from the bin case"
Pros: "Once I boarded the flight, everything was pretty standard. They had charging ports in the seats."
Cons: "Unlike other airlines like Delta or United, Copa doesn't ask people if they want to take a later flight for travel credit when a flight is over booked. They randomly select people who get pulled out of the boarding line, even though I already had an online boarding pass. They cite something in the fine print that says you can get kicked off a flight if you don't check in at the front desk with the gate attendants 90min. before the flight. Again, I already checked in and had a boarding pass on my phone. After getting kicked off, the service continued to be poor and they blamed those of us who got kicked off for being 'late.' All of us were there in the terminal well before boarding."
Cons: "El vuelo a Montevideo was overbooked y eso desperto muchas ansiedades pues tenia que llegar a bs as a tratamientos medicos"
Cons: "Additional security check at the gate in Panama is not run very professionally or securely and is a hassle."
Cons: "Both to and from austin were delayed several hours. Crew was rude to other passengers. Was not impressed by customer service."
Cons: "Better customer services"
Cons: "Boarding is slow and awkward, with too many passengers with carryons that don't fit. AA did not enforce size restriction on carryon bags, nor help maximize bin space. Mainstream carriers really need to rethink boarding procedures. I've been spoiled by the speed of Southwest and the attentiveness of SWA staff to the process."
Pros: "borden pass hade no gate no."
Pros: "They only have bathrooms in the back of the plane now. There is a line of people during the ENTIRE flight. Also means you have to squeeze down this line when you get out, so your choice is to thrust your crotch into a poor seated person, or rub it against someone as they squeeze down the line. NO"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO. I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."
Pros: "The pilot was fine and kept us informed. However, the rest of the crew was awful. Not friendly, did not smile. What poor example of American Airline employees. No food was available in the main cabin. This was a 6:30 p.m. flight and there should have been menu items available, not just pretzels"
Cons: "Crew and options for food. If I wanted pretzels, I would fly with Southwest. They have better service anyway."
Cons: "American changed our seats to back of plane. No explanation."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1h30, no food or beverage served!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Side seats suck"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The food was excellent"
Cons: "seat room space"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs - but no fault of the airline."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."
Pros: "Nothing, we had to deplane."
Cons: "This flight was completely messed up and ultimately ruined my connection and subsequent travel plans. We were told there was a 30 minute delay because of the pilot and shortly after we were told to deplane. I had to cancel. rebook with another airline while my bag traveled to Boston"
Pros: "Nice seats with plenty of leg room. Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I am glad I am still alive"
Pros: "very attentive steward, nice snack choices"
Cons: "they allowed too many late people to board after departure on a 100% full flight; not due to lines, but because they were late to the gate"
Pros: "Lunch was GREAT- usually fly Delta but this was comparable."
Cons: "WiFi, ESPECIALLY when you pay for a first class ticket, should be free. Further, the instructions for connecting to paid WiFi are NOT printed clearly anywhere. I had to go to the internet while on the ground. There are many movie and TV show options for free on your own device, however."
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "We where late boarding, jet didn’t have fuel, we had delay after delay. This flight is never on time. every time I have taken this flight I am delayed. Also getting into charolette, we always spend at least 20 min on the tarmac"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours there, delayed 5 hours on the way back. Messed up plans a bit"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Well I missed my cousin wedding because of the delay in NY, Chicago and AZ how is that even possible American Airline"
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."
Pros: "Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "We did not appreciate the game of needing to pay for seat selection after having already paid for tickets. We were not provided with TSA-PRE despite providing our known traveler numbers in advance. Boarding selection protocol seemed opaque, complex, and geared towards inviting us to pay extra for priority boarding. Before boarding the plane, we were not able to find out whether any food would be served and the extent of what might be provided. After getting on board, we were offered the chance to buy food. The complementary food was a cookie and a few ounces of soda or juice. Movies were available, but not headphones for listening to them. Leg space under the seat in front of us was reduced to make room for life vests."
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "No USB ports"
Pros: "Crew were great. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane didn't have in-seat entertainment. Very hard to watch movies on small central screens. Movies were really old."
Cons: "No personal TV, awful airline servicers. They were very rude and seemed distracted."
Pros: "All went well the St"
Cons: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "The first class service was excellent."
Pros: "Very timely, didn't take forever getting off the ground"
Cons: "As a first time traveler, it would have been nice to have a little help with navigating the airport once I arrived."
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "A great flight"
Cons: "No real food to eat"
Pros: "I did like that "new plane" smell. Good pretzels."
Cons: "Plane was too new; computer system hadn't been set right. Left 45 minutes late, though made up some lost time in the air. Very rude passengers (obviously not the airline's fault, I know). Everyone thinks they should be the first to get off the plane!"
Pros: "Plane was newer, had TV/interactive entertainment centers in the back of all the headrests. Crew on board was polite, cheerful, & friendly. Excellent service from the on board staff. Plane had WiFi & plug ins to charge/use items"
Cons: "Almost missed our flight home because American Airlines lost/screwed up our round trip tickets. We were not able to check in quickly or efficiently, & service was appalling, staff was either poorly trained or uneducated. We tried using the kiosk to check in, to avoid the long line. That didn’t work, so we found help. They told us to retry, wasting time, finding out what we had already informed them of. They passed us off to another gate/service counter, who’s line was closed off. So we had to duck the divider. They then redirected us to the kiosks after we informed them it couldn’t find our reservations, so they tried (wasted more time) failed & sent us back to the line we were already in. After that wait we talked to the person at the desk, who also couldn’t find our reservation. They said “I don’t know it’s not in here, what do you want me to do?” I had to tell them to call a manager to get it fixed, we were going to miss our flight. They called & found the problem, then at 3:15ish reissued us tickets for our 3:30 return flight. Still had to get through TSA! There was also NO phone call to hold the plane or to arrange an airport people mover cart. They talked with the TSA agent who told us to go 2 checkpoints down where the line was shorter. So the American Airlines attendant told us to run. Turns out in Miami Airport there is almost a quarter mile of poorly labeled counter space. Went through TSA having 12 min before our reassigned flight left. TSA was helpful, & did their best to get us through quickly. We were then informed we were near gate 22 & our gate was 3, so rushing down another concourse we barely made our return flight home. Where we were forced to check our carry-on. My girlfriend was crying, we were sweaty (from hustling when we never should of had too), hungry, embarrassed, enraged, & not sitting together for our 3+ hr flight! Unacceptable after a 4hr drive to the airport in traffic & returning the rental car at 1:40!"
Cons: "Tight seats, return was late missed connection had to spend the night in Charlottte."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen entertainment."
Cons: "I am understanding during a flight delay- that's not in the crew's control. But when an employee swears up and down that there is NO chance our bags won't arrive with us and then is WRONG, that is bullshit. Also, I'm a 5'6 woman, and even I had knee pain from the tiny leg room. Imagine how my 6'2 partner felt."
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Pros: "On time and no lost bags"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bin"
Pros: "finally made it to our destination"
Cons: "our flight was delayed 3 hours, they finally changed planes, and the one we took for a trans-Atlantic flight was cramped, poor service on the plane, all-in-all an uncomfortable flight - I've had much better on other carriers, and won't be likely to use American Airlines again :("
Pros: "The only good part was that I had no one sitting next to me"
Cons: "We had a 8 hour delay in Lima and the customer service was terrible. I did not know what was going on for hours on end and they keep giving all the passengers the loop around. I work in the hospitality industry and this isn't the way to treat your paying customers"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Pros: "From boarding to landing evething was perfect. Flight was not overcrowded, so I could lay and sleep comfortable in economy. Crew ok"
Pros: "Aircraft, cabin service, food and entertainment was excellent. Although I booked on BA, the flight was operated by AA. Next time I'll be booking on AA directly. AA services far surpassed BA."
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Pros: "Got there"
Cons: "Way too expensive"
Pros: "Lovely staff, new plane, great entertainment options"
Pros: "The crew was average"
Cons: "It was an average flight ... nothing to complain about !"
Pros: "Good Flight"
Cons: "I was satisfied with all service"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "There is completely no free snacks, just drinks (excluding alcohol). The maintenance didn't sign some papers for the plane which cause the unnecessary delay."
Cons: "More drinks, snacks"
Cons: "The flight was late leaving and most of the passengers needed to catch connecting flights, so there was some anxiety as the crew didn't have any information as to whether or not we'd be able to connect."
Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."
Pros: "The seat space was good and the flight ended without incident."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which happens, but there was no communication as to why or how long it would be or any other information. In flight the crew were barely visible as I had to ask for refreshments and then they brought it around for everyone. Next was cleanup which took way longer before it showed up."
Pros: "Flights were very good. I was concerned about the buy food on board option but it worked well. The food was good and it cost less than buying in the airport and bringing on board. Using the charge card to pay wend smoothly and seemed not to slow the process at all. Good job Air Canada."
Pros: "Beautiful new 787"
Cons: "Entertainment options could be more plentiful."
Cons: "poor entertainment choices. Reading lights didn't work. I traveled with my wife, we were unable to read because reading lights didn't work."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew helped make the situation better but a 3 hour delay made my experience unpleasant."
Pros: "Arriving safely. Very smooth landing."
Cons: "The same issue regarding no bottled water. Very turbulent flight. My bag and contents were damaged and Air Canada agent is stating that it is NOT covered!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Pros: "The staff were great!! So friendly and helpful although it was an hour wait to get to customer service she was very helpful in getting me on a flight hours earlier than the one I was booked on. She was very empathetic to the fact I was supposed to be in Calgary at 10:30am and the flight I was booked on wasn't going to get me there until 11:30pm"
Cons: "All day I had been reset for flights I were going to miss. When I fianally made it to Toronto and I get put on the 3rd flight to leave for Calgary...thankfully for the last noted above. In the end I missed my ride from the airport and had to rent a car. It made for a very long day!! Although the staff were friendly I just felt shuffled all day"
Pros: "Quick flight. Great fare pice."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The whole experience from boarding to landing was great. Zone 2 boarding is one of the first called and the premium economy section has larger seats that recline more and don't affect the person behind as much. Food was decent and serve on a ceramic plate with real silver wear. On demand entertainment was adequate with a number of recent titles and even audiobook options."
Cons: "The section was set up in a 2-3-2 seat configuration and I booked the middle 3, but were given 2 in the middle and one one the left aisle. One of the middle seats was left open for the pilot to come back and watch movies during the flight. When I asked the attendant if we could swap the left aisle with the "pilot's" the attendant made it seem like it was a bigger deal but eventually asked the pilot who said he didn't mind. After all, it was just changing one empty seat to the other side of the aisle."
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The trip took about 48 hours. After a cancelled flight I got no hotel discount. Several flights were delayed or cancelled and in the end I ended up just going to a city 3 hours from where I live and renting a car to drive home. My luggage still hasn't arrived. This was the worst, most stressful travel experience of my life."
Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. We were asked to keep Cabin Luggage beneath our seats even though it fits the prescribe dimension. Return flight was first late then was told that the Restroom inside the plane is not working which is weird (atleast i never experienced this before)."
Cons: "Air Canada has very poor communication with customers. Having seen that ALL flights were delayed (it was 9:40 pm when I connected through Toronto) I asked 2 Air Canada employees about my 10:30 flight that showed on time on the monitor but Kayak already said it was late. They said it was late due to late inbound aircraft. A fellow passenger informed me that TO was down to one runway and things would be late late - which they were. TALK to us Air Canada!!!"
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "Crew were likeable, worked hard and very friendly."
Cons: "However, waiting for a pilot, no snacks included, and an entertainment system that didn't work turned this flight from routine to a disaster."
Cons: "There was a build-up of delays for domestic flights, namely from Toronto to Edmonton, Ottawa and Calgary (the ones I heard). I was on the Toronto to Calgary flight, which was supposedly delayed from 16:45 till 18:55 EST, but the actual boarding time was closer to 19:45 EST. Once all the passengers were boarded, the crew informed us that the pilot was missing. Another 20 minutes went by before he was located, at which point we were informed that the first mate was missing as well. By the time the pilot and first mate were both on the aircraft, it took another 30 minutes for them to get the aircraft ready. My flight from Toronto to Calgary was supposed to arrive at 19:40 MDT, the actual arrival time was 23:00 MDT. As a passenger, I am annoyed to say the least."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "I had a very large man behind me and couldn't recline my seat an ounce therefore I couldn't sleep the entire flight. I think if your a certian size you should have to buy a seat with more room instead of make everyone else uncomfortable. The food was almost inedible, and there wasn't much more than chips or chocolate bars to pick up in That section of the Airport before flying out :( Entertainment choices were excellent though!"
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "I had my checked baggage held up in Calgary for one day. Then on the way back it was held up again in Calgary. This time it took 6 days,and no one could tell me where it was. It will be my first and last Air Canada flight."
Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Pros: "Staff were very nice"
Cons: "2 out of 4 of my meals were incorrect. I had asked for vegan meals and 2 of them were clearly not vegan."
Cons: "Missed the flight due tot eh first delay then the next one got delayed too"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and helpful!"
Cons: "This was the last leg of a 24 hour journey from Venice to Seattle for my sister and me. After having a 3 1/2 hour layover, our plane was supposed to leave at 6:30 PM and kept getting delayed. One of the biggest frustrations was the lack of communication by the staff! We could see them at the counter where our gate was but no one would come out and talk to us! Our plane finally got off the ground at 8:30 PM!"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Everything was as scheduled"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Pros: "Wifi was a bonus (not free, but was good to have, and worked well). Staff was friendly."
Pros: "On time, excellent flight."
Cons: "There was only a very limited choice of movies to select from."
Cons: "It was late arriving in from TO. We had to pre board due to a handicapped companion and there was no time to settle with all the rest of the passengers shoving to get on due to the lateness. The majority of the flight was through turbulence. No one helped with placing bags for the handicapped in the overhead. They did not call for the wheelchair at arrival nor was there an attendant att arrival to push the chair up the ramp."
Cons: "The boarding crew did a poor job of giving direction. In spite of the fact that boarding by zone was not specified, I was reprimanded by staff for boarding when I did. I found it very disrespectful that the staff reprimanded me for their own error. When I pointed out that they had not called a zone the ground staff lied and said they had called the zone. I strongly recommend staff receive remedial customer service training. This was an incredibly negative experience - not to mention undermined the otherwise decent experience that the Air Canada flight team provided."
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride"
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer. Did provide a $10 meal voucher. Good to know Air Canada values my total trip delay time at $2/hr"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Check-in was slow but due to all the covid protocals
Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!
Pros: "It was meh...."
Cons: "I got no notification that the flight was going to be 1 hour earlier"
Pros: "boarding was smooth"
Cons: "There was no ventilation on the flight. Cooling system not working adequately. Kept waking up b/c is was so hot. Came home with a massive headache as a result. Very UNCOMFORTABLE"
Pros: "staff was nice"
Cons: "it was late as always, so instead of getting home tonight, I am in a crapy hotel in Houston ...."
Pros: "Flight was canceled."
Pros: "Airplanes, entertainment, boarding, check in"
Cons: "Food, conections"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Cons: "We didn’t have food on our flight, but ordered it at a cost. We didn’t get the food or pay for it."
Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."
Pros: "My economy plus seat was good (once I finally got it) and for all the hassle they did free tv for the whole plane. THey found a new plane FAST!"
Cons: "They changed gates last minute - plane was in for maintenance and slight delay - then cancelled that plane - did the series of 15 minute additional delays. They found a new plane - changed the gates (big distance) again - and 'the computer' had reseated 1/2 the plane. DISTASTER to fix."
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "The Rio de Janeiro international airport is very difficult to traverse. However, the airport staff was very helpful in directing me several times to the correct location."
Cons: "United needs a check-in kiosk located between the domestic arrivals section and the international connection hallway just before security. I had to walk to the complete length of the airport and back again, just to check-in. Other airlines, such as Delta, have a kiosk located just before the security entrance. The cabin temperature was absolutely freezing during the flight, and I am usually hot."
Pros: "Selection of films and TV"
Cons: "Late boarding, but no apology. Drinks service, but no snacks"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Movie kept crashing and I had to restart the app"
Cons: "Worst food I've ever had on a plane. Entertainment and internet down for half the flight after a delay at the airport for maintenance. Finally had United app. No free WiFi."
Cons: "Airplane was super cold. No extra blankets. Passengers freezing. Impossible to sleep."
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "Pushed out on time and made it home early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were non existent. 2 water services in a 4 hour flight is ridiculous."
Cons: "The United Boarding Agent repeatedly warned about the "SMALL" carry on compartments on the CJR aircraft and literally insisted we tag our carry ons to be set aside on boarding even though we knew they fitted OK. AS A RESULT when we got to Calgary we had to wait at the over size luggage racks for our carry ons to be delivered instead of them being set up for us as we left the aircraft which is normal!! Very frustrating!!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "I enjoyed the assistance, the food and the movies"
Cons: "I liked every single bit of my experience."
Cons: "We star boarding 20 min late, after that the airplane was totally full i was separated from my family"
Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight Attendant was REALLY late. We had to delay boarding to wait for her. 15 minutes. then it took longer to wait for gate check -- green tag bag - than if I had checked the bag. when we finally got the gate check bags and headed through customs the checked bags were all on the carousel. And I have Nexus. So Customs was 3 minutes. NOT a good process. Figure it out YYC international terminal!!!"
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "We arrived safely along with our baggage."
Cons: "Major weather issues so delayed boarding and flight. That's understandable, but poor, often rude, gate operations. Often no, inaccurate, or misleading information. They seemed confused, as if this were the first time event."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks Well think it was only water or orange juice available"
Cons: "It was a very unpleasant experience overall."
Pros: "The flight is on time."
Cons: "I wouldn't know since I wasn't on it and I'm still in the airport waiting for my flight. I have to try to get comfortable on the floor right now."
Pros: "Cabin crew were fantastic"
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a name discrepancy on a passenger. Not fair to keep everyone waiting for one person"
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late."
Pros: "There were open seats!"
Cons: "Delayed a little because of weather. No big deal."
