Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"

Pros: "Everything except the delay was fine, not extraordinary."
Cons: "7-hour flight delay. If this was a European flight we would have been entitled to at least $250 for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything to compensate us for a 7hour delay, which was ridiculous."

Pros: "It was delayed"

Cons: "Departure delayed by 1hr30"

Cons: "Snacks"

Cons: "If there could have been some sort of services to take travelers to their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."

Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew; excellent service with a smile. Food was good considering, and Magnum ice cream bar a delightful treat. Cabin crew paid good attention to benefits of hydration and served water continuously. Seats and leg room were comfortable considering economy and no extra cost."
Cons: "Plane was not as clean as it should be--plastic utensil on floor, seat rails not vacuumed--however, still rate overall comfort as excellent."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat in 1st class. Poor quality video screen, too small, too far away, poor sound."

Pros: "Boarding was easy, plane clean, snacks good."
Cons: "Small plane but that’s not really fixable"

Pros: "I was very impressed with the flight attendants. They were very pleasant & very attentive to the guests. The premium seats were very comfortable. The only disappointment was the chicken dinner but the ice cream dessert & refreshments were wonderful."

Pros: "As usual"
Cons: "Landing was a bit rough"

Pros: "The crew and overhead storage."

Pros: "I was rerouted."
Cons: "No one would reissue me a ticket for the next flight. Delta and West Jet kept saying the other company should do this, and in the end no one did and I had to purchase another ticket."

Pros: "The boarding was easy, crew was super and the travel was awesome."

Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."

Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"

Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."
Cons: "Signage is terrible. Delta sign out side is obscured as and too small. Construction is no excuse for the confusion. Delta is not readable on the overhead signs and airport is too dark at night. Everything is hard to find."

Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."

Pros: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."
Cons: "Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal"

Pros: "The flight attendant in Delta Comfort/Main Cabin was very nice and made for an excellent trip. Smooth ride and on time. I like that!"

Pros: "No complaints. A puddle-hopper to a yes."

Pros: "All that one would want."

Cons: "The boarding took a long time then when they called for the zone 3 they told us to hurry up. The steward was doing everything by hand motion. You couldn't hear what he was saying. The plane was extremely noisy and we asked what the noise was none of the crew answered. This is not the normal service that I am used to from Delta."

Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"
Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."

Pros: "El personal abordo muy amable llegamos a tiempo"
Cons: "En el ahereopuerto de guatemala para chekiar las maletas siento q nesesitan mas personal estuve una ora y quince minutos para poder chekiar mi maleta"

Pros: "Able to watch an interview. Then part of a movie which makes the time fly."

Cons: "The flight was delayed but there was nothing the airline could do because it was beyond their control."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."

Pros: "Good Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "We were waiting until the airport assigned us a parking slot. Instead of leaving the entertainment system on, they turned it off. We basically spent 1.5h without entertainment system."

Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."

Cons: "They were rude and notnhelpful lost my luggage"

Pros: "Left on time. Boarded easily and arrived early"
Cons: "Flying :)"

Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."

Pros: "No Crew."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, never went."

Pros: "Muito confortável. Boarding muito rápido. Muito bem atendido a bordo."
Cons: "Infelizmente o serviço de bordo não pode ser apreciado, mas entendo que é pela segurança dos passageiros."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "They should be on time but we left 30 minutes later."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"

Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."

Pros: "Friendly staff clean cabin"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"

Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."

Cons: "El vuelo se atrasó 1 hora y media no comunicaron y cuando llame me indican mal tiempo pero conforme que no había mal tiempo.. no estoy satisfecha con LATAM"

Cons: "Delay by an hour"

Cons: "The time it took to open the door upon arrival"

Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Pros: "the crew was realy great and everything was very good."

Pros: "Puntual"

Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."

Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"
Cons: "Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on"

Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"

Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"

Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The seats were typical airliner seats - good enough but more leg room would be nice. Our flights ran on time, and the crew was excellent. Our experience at the Lima Airport was much improved from our first stop there."

Cons: "In my last connection in Santiago airport I was asked to pickup my luggage and do check-in again and all of this in a 1 hour and 20 minutes connection, when I arrived to the check-in desk at first they said that I was late and needed to be there 2 hours ago, just after argueing they let my pass"

Pros: "I liked that there was plenty of friendly, professional help along the way."

Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."

Cons: "The same. It was the same plain"

Pros: "About as comfortable as it could be given a 10 hour flight and a pretty full plane."
Cons: "Boarding at LAX was unpleasant. Waited in a crowded shuttle bus for at least 20 minutes then long drive to a remote boarding gate."

Pros: "Smooth flight good staff"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "In flight entertainment system was pretty good and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "Latam needs to rethink seating in the airbus. I’m 5’2 and I felt completely cramped. Did not have room to bend down for under seat carryon, comfortable exit isle to use restrooms, and definitely could not sleep. Very long flight to be in such cramped conditions."

Pros: "Lam take care very well my mother . She is handicap and the wheelchair was able to used at the counter. My mother will be happy to come back ,awhile she does not to walk to much by herself."
Cons: "nothing the trip was great."

Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"

Pros: "It was very fast to board, and the landing was great"
Cons: "No entertainment, no free snacks"

Pros: "Being on a plane!"
Cons: "Having our initial flight delayed by 8 hours for a vague technical problem and given no info."

Pros: "The fact that I made it to my destination and Home safetly."
Cons: "The service is terrible . They lose bags , the planes are dirty, you can still see head grease on the windows and old dried up food on the seat backs. We were delayed 40 minutes. No annoucement or notification . The staff are rude , and don’t care . Very unreliable airline - the food is disgusting."

Pros: "It was a new plane, the pilot waited for our bags to be put into the plane. Because we made it to the plane after they had loaded everyone. This was due to our late arrival From our Delayed connection from Washington."
Cons: "At our arrival a couple had taken our seats. The flight attendant told us to get on any other seat available. We had our family (the three of us ) spread out in the plane. I had to ask another attendant to please ask for our seats back. Finally after a while we got them back but it wasn't a Pleasant experience. They didn't have enough headphones to give everyone. My son and I had to share one headphone. The food was really bad for an international flight, Not even the wine was given without paying for it"

Pros: "The customer service"
Cons: "Delays on boarding which resulted in 1hr delay at arrival"

Pros: "customer service in Bogota"
Cons: "needs to download the app to watch movies if you do not have a I pad or smart phone????"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Didn't even offer water, this on a 3 1/2 hour flight, took too long to board, too long to get off...they sold food on the flight, they seemed to cater to whomever wanted to buy food, & like I said offer water to the rest of us. Just an overall horrible flight."

Pros: "Not much since not only were we screened by the airport authorities but also by Latam. I purchased some water after security but had to leave it since they would not allow it on the plane. Had they let us know about this sooner I could have saved money."
Cons: "The Latam personnel who searched our bags prior to boarding put on gloves which I though was very good. The bad part was that I saw 2 members of the search party sneeze into the gloves and touch their noses without changing gloves. How disgusting!!! Never Latam again! I would rather pay a few dollars more and not put up with this health violation."

Pros: "They gave me and exit row."
Cons: "Turbulence, but that wasn't their fault."

Cons: "The return flight was cancelled, and I missed my return flight back from Lima to Atlanta."

Pros: "The friendliness and efficiency of the flight attendants was incredible!"
Cons: "I cannot think of antthing bad!"

Pros: "The plane and crew were nice, the food was pretty good for airplane food, they give you wine with your food. Overall one of the better airplanes and quality trip for the prices as one can get"
Cons: "The same things you don't like about all other airplanes, boarding procedures, lines for the bathroom ect"

Pros: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
Cons: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"

Cons: "Could not select my seat"

Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."

Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "We had an hour delay and 15 minutes since we land to go out of the pkain"

Pros: "While my flight attendants were all fine and everything was very good, my daughter flew w/ LATAM 3 days later than us and her experience was good on all flights except from Lima to Rio de Janeiro."
Cons: "It was all very good on the flight TO Lima. No problems."

Pros: "Beautiful, new, clean plane with friendly staff and pretty good food"

Pros: "This was American Airlines. So the quality of the flight was significantly better."

Pros: "Boarding was handled very efficiently"
Cons: "The plane looked very dated. But otherwise it was a pleasant experience"

Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"

Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The plane could have arrived on time, made sure everything worked fine, and got me to my destination like they said they were going to... instead, stand by for a different flight was not what I paid for... but it is what I got."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"

Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "N/A, ny flight was only 45 minutes. It was delayed 3 times."

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"

Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"

Cons: "No window at the window seat"

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"

Cons: "Landing was rough."

Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"

Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"

Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"

Pros: "The 787 is a nice aircraft"
Cons: "It should not take 2 hours from touchdown to the terminal. The flight arrived early but by the time the last passenger made it to the terminal, they probably missed their connection."

Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."

Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"

Cons: "The options for the lactose free diet were not very good and I was not given an alternative snack to the ice cream they provided to the others."

Cons: "same as above. Was not on this flight"

Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"

Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."

Cons: "The flight and the entire process with American was just fine. What bothered me most was the rude treatment from security staff in Philadelphia. Compared to security staff overseas, the U.S. rates the lowest of the 55+ countries I've visited. It does not reflect badly on American Airlines, but it does give travelers a bad lasting impression. As an American, I'm embarrassed by their behavior."

Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."

Cons: "The original booked flight was about 12 hours before the rebooked flight. We got up at about 2:00 am to leave for the airport at 3:30 am for a 6:30 am flight. We were all packed and booked our ride and shuttinlpg down the computer at the last minute when we noticed an mail after midnight telling us the flight was cancelled. We called and were told there was nothing they could do, due to connections and this was entirely their fault. Approximately 12 hours later we took a “red eye” thus arriving a day late for our hotel and car reservations. We were charged baggage fees and not sure if our priority boarding will be refunded."

Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."

Pros: "Great pilot. Outstanding control over the plane. Arrived an hour and a half before originally forecasted three days prior."

Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "horrible plane for international travel. it was small cramped. Food was horrible. Not even a good full meal. Just snacks."

Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."

Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."

Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"

Cons: "Extremely old plane"

Pros: "Like the clean, comfortable seating. Great crew service and in time!"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"

Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."

Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"

Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."

Pros: "I like the comfortable chairs and screen touch screen in the seat in front of me"

Pros: "Staff members went above and beyond expections; accomodating some seating reassignment requests, charging customer phones, and being very responsive overall."
Cons: "It would have been nice to at least have USB chargers in economy class."

Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."

Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"

Pros: "Boarding staff helped in rearranging seats on request"
Cons: "No snacks provided only beverages supplied"

Pros: "Overall great flight and great service. No complaints!"

Pros: "There was entertainment on the flight"

Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."

Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE."

Pros: "Second leg when purchased extra leg room, that's the way all seats should be. We boarded timely but then left late. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. Lare departure."

Pros: "Flew economy from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Aircraft looked like a newer Airbus A320 with the new Air Canada branding (black lettering against white fuselage). Air Canada check in process has passengers use self service kiosks first and then take the tags and luggage to the counter. The employees at check in were all very efficient and made sure the line didn't get too long. The flight left on time. Every seat had personal entertainment system, and mine worked great. The flight attendants themselves were very professional."
Cons: "The in flight magazine was water damaged and somewhat soiled (probably from prior passenger's drink). I wish the on ground cleaning crew would take the time to inspect the seat back pockets."

Pros: "I flew through Vancouver from Boston on my way to Brisbane, Australia and back. I was nervous at first because of the 2 hour connection windows. This might be a testament to Vancouver Airport more than Air Canada. The entertainment was ok. It had a decent variety to select from but i only ended up watch a few things and entertaining myself or sleeping. I paid to sit in an exit aisle as I only had middle seats to select from. It was worth paying for the freedom to stretch your legs and get up anytime without disrupting your row."
Cons: "The food was ok, I personally wish the drink cart came by more often so I didn't feel rude asking the air hostess each time. They were always very accommodating though."

Pros: "It flew from point a to b safely"
Cons: "Last time I saw a similar cabin was when I was 10! I'm 37 now. The overhead baggage bins were made for small bags from a different century. seats were grey....grey. In flight entertainment was by app...that you have to download first, I should have known beforehand. Food was little munchies. Seemed like an old and tired airline"

Pros: "Great service from the staff and crew. Comfortable flight in every conceivable aspect!"

Cons: "No TV"

Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The screens in front of the seats didn't work for everyone. They attempted to fix the system by restarting it, but the problem remained unfixed."

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."

Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."

Cons: "Took forever to board"

Pros: "Not much to compliment on. The flight did offer a great selection of movies to choose from during the trip."
Cons: "Constant flight delays. We were left on the runway for two hours before taking off due to an issue with the laboratory. The plane was overpacked, not allowing much personal space even in the aisle seat. People were sleeping on the floor and some in the aisles, creating a tripping hazard to those wanting to stand and stretch or walk to the restrooms. Those who attempted to sleep in their seat found that the seats were very uncomfortable and had very little to no leg room. When it came time to land at our destination, we ended up having to circle the airport for an additional 35 mins waiting for the terminal to free up. It was a very long 10hr flight that even the nice selection of movies to choose from couldn't help. Terrible flight experience, Canadian Air has really gone down hill."

Pros: "Long wait for ticketing and at customs during transfer"

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."

Pros: "Meals were good and I do like the premium economy seats."
Cons: "One issue that the premium economy seats have is that they recline button is very stiff to push. Then when you have final pushed it in then push back on the seat it falls to the full recline position, potentially surprising the passenger behind. I thought this was isolated to this flight but have now encountered in 2 subsequent flights in AC premium economy."

Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."

Pros: "I needed a wheelchair and they were very friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Entertainment, Crew, Boarding"
Cons: "Had to pay for food"

Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "Meal -"

Pros: "It's been a long time since I flew Air Canada . Great flight, blanket and pillow provided - seats, movies and and a lot of snacks. Worth the money for a long flight :)"

Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."

Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"

Cons: "Entertainment system. Spacious seating for economy class."

Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."

Pros: "Different announcements for boarding occurred almost simultaneously, making it hard to understand what was being said."

Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."

Pros: "Other than the rude employee in Vancouver's ticket and baggage counter, I'd fly Air Canada all the time if I could. SO much better than any of the other commercial airlines."
Cons: "We had a 10 hour layover in Vancouver, which would have been fine except that we had to get our luggage and recheck it the following morning. This left us outside of security, unable to go anywhere to rest. No one expects to be comfortable when you spend the night in the airport, but this was worse. No where to sleep, no decent chairs to rest in. We weren't sure why, since our connecting flight to Seoul South Korea was also Air Canada, our luggage had to be picked up at baggage claim, held on until the following morning, then rechecked. The clerks at the Air Canada ticket and baggage counter were supposed to be opened at 9, but an incredibly rude employee snapped at me that he didn't have time to talk to me, that I'd just need to wait until 9:30 when they opened."

Pros: "Everything and I have alot if air miles under me.The flight crew was great. The aircraft was great."
Cons: "The food could have Ben a little been a little better."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"

Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."

Pros: "The flight attendant in Business class was absolutely fantastic. Very friendly, attentive, and fun. She made the trip special."
Cons: "Business were regular seats, but for such a small plane I understand."

Pros: "It was a nice flight up the coast and there were no problems"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like about the flight."

Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"

Pros: "The flight was excellant. Something that horizon air needs to aspire too."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."

Pros: "I really liked how updated the plane was. The wine selection was very good. The entertainment had plenty of things to do - movies and TV shows were updated. I enjoyed the ice cream, that was a very nice treat!"
Cons: "I thought the food was not as good as the flight over to the UK - the mashed potatoes didn't look or taste like it had any real components at all and the bread was a little stale."

Pros: "Great crew and good wine!"

Pros: "Nice staff. Comfortable"
Cons: "Return flight delayed. No Reason given"

Cons: "Canceled flight Toronto to vancouver BC missed our connecting flight, no option from airlines to provide accommodation or alter net transportation to final destination (Portland OR). Has to spend additional money and time traveling due to that. Supper inconveniences by it!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."

Cons: "As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."

Pros: "Most things where fine. Slight delay in boarding but still made our connection."
Cons: "Tried to signal stewards for another beverage but got no response. Lack of customer service."

Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight, unless you are flying first class it's not going to be amazing."

Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"

Pros: "From the views read I cannot say I had the same experience. Crew was helpful & kind. Flight was on time and comfortable."

Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."

Pros: "Air Canada has treated me excellently every time I've flown with them. However, this connection was through United, which, on my flight to LAX, was delayed 3 hours. I should have known how this would go."
Cons: "Since this flight was delayed, I would not make my connecting flight to Tokyo. Flights with Air Canada to Tokyo were all booked that day, and several days afterward. I canceled my flight and am awaiting refund. I booked with another airline. I am severely disappointed with United's behavior. I've flown out of several countries from various airlines, and the US and US-based airlines are the only flight with consistent delays. It's honestly embarrassing. And I suppose, while I'm complaining, I'll add--as someone with a severe peanut allergy, it was important that this flight was with Air Canada, who actually cares about my safety. That I had to miss my flight and book with another, potentially dangerous airline, added to my dissatisfaction."

Cons: "International flight over 6hrs, yet food not included on flight?"

Cons: "Awful. Recieved flight delay info then recieved another email hour before flight moving it back tonoriginal time. Based on your emails my wife and daughter missed their flight. Total disaster. Makin me reconsider wver using kayak again"

Pros: "Bulkhead window seat, very pleasant and informative pilot"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on this flight"

Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."

Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"

Pros: "Left on time. Employees were competent and friendly, and kept us appraised of things in flight (turbulence, etc)."
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like"

Cons: "Airplane was super cold. No extra blankets. Passengers freezing. Impossible to sleep."

Pros: "Flight was short and got to gate on time"
Cons: "sat for about 20 min. before takeoff with no info"

Cons: "Smooth ride"

Pros: "They held the plane in order for me to catch it after my late flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The crew member promised my $60 in checked bags would still follow me, but when I arrived In Vancouver I was Informed they were still in Chicago. My seat did not recline and my reading lamp was broken after paying $80 for the upgraded seat. The flight attendant was a bit grouchy about it. The WiFi was very sporadic and didn’t work for the majority of the trip.. which I wasted 900 miles on. Not impressed this time around."

Pros: "Checking in was simple with no problems. They made the process easy. Very courteous!"

Cons: "Missed my flight."

Pros: "On time, very pleasant crew"

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 bar is pretty low with United. Even being a 1K member, I am usually just hoping the flight arrives on time. This time it didn't. The crew was polite, which isn't always the case."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."

Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"

Pros: "My seat"

Pros: "Tv, food, outlet to charge phone."
Cons: "Crew was unfriendly and seats were small and uncomfortable for a 4.5h flight."

Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"

Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"

Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"

Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."

Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"

Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"

Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."

Pros: "There were snacks & water provided."
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed, and the luggage took a long time to arrive, it was 4am, and then there was a taxi line and there were no taxis available and each one took time for each passenger."

Pros: "Nice free inflight wifi entertainment, small selection and need own device. Make sure to bring your headphones!"

Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"

Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."

Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."

Pros: "Fly upnto Vancouver BC this time."

Cons: "The seats had no infotainment system No food Cramped"

Cons: "We were trying to print our boarding passes and computer didn't recognize our bar code. United employees were trying to help us and they couldn't print it either until we approched counter. We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and 45 minutes because engine did not start. Had us deplane. Caused us to miss our connecting flight and we had to wait 6 hours for another one."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"

Pros: "Informative Captain. Made up time in transit."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not exist and a fee was charged to access content online. This does not meet industry standards. During boarding, airline agent told me my one allowable carry-on item had to be checked because of limited space in overhead bins. Upon boarding the plane, there was clearly room for more luggage to be stored overhead. One flight crew member served complimentary beverages by serving the entire can. The other served by pouring only some of the can into a cup. Again, this does not meet industry standards, from the perspective of a reasonably well-traveled flier."

Pros: "I gave it a four because the airline put safety first. Though we had to change plane due to some funny sound made by the engine, the wait was worth it. The crew were helpful and the actual flight was smooth."

Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."

Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays. That was after not noticing issues with the plane until after waiting for late passengers and taxiing out. We arrived 4hrs late for a 3hr flight. They also only had one agent to rebook flights and assign hotels at the end even though they had hours to know the connections would be missed."

Pros: "Cabin crew were fantastic"

Cons: "Don't fly United"

Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."

Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Cons: "The plane is very old"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "This flight was delayed an hour as United had maintenance issues with the plane. United sadly has a bad reputation for deferred maintenance on its planes in order to cut costs. They don't care about customer satisfaction, just the bottom line."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding on and off the plane was very easy"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortably. We had a nearly 6 hour flight with no tvs which wasn't great either."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hasnt even left yet. 3 hours late"

Pros: "On time. The crew was good."
Cons: "Could not pick seats online. Party of 3 seated in 3 different rows"
