Pros: "Seats were horrible, we all booked together and a bunch of my group got bumped to a different flight."

Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."

Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."

Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"

Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"

Pros: "Plane was clean and updated"
Cons: "No negative opinions"

Pros: "Everything was great, easy boarding, great idea (board ahead of your zone if you check bag free at gate), courteous staff, good food choices, arrived ahead of schedule, good movies."

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: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"

Cons: "4+ total hour delay"

Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"

Pros: "loved the airbus and in flight movies good stufg"

Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."

Pros: "Nothing. Delta is the worst. Delta is awful. Don't fly Delta."
Cons: "I wouldn't know how our flight to Sioux Falls was. Delta left without us, after they made us late. We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."

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: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."

Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Delay over one hour."

Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"

Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"

Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."

Pros: "Staff hospitality"
Cons: "Deboarding delay, seems typical"

Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."

Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."

Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."

Pros: "everthing went well"

Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"

Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"

Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."

Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."

Pros: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"

Pros: "westjet connect to watch a tv show or the news or something"

Pros: "Friendly people!"

Cons: "They automatically gave me the window seat"

Cons: "Poor management and customer service."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Took a very long time to serve any food or drinks after being told we could order at anytime, tricky with two little kiddos."

Pros: "Nothing at all. Boarding time changed 3times. Nothing nothing nothing good."
Cons: "Boarding time changed 3 times. 2 hours later than original schedule. Terrible pilot went around city for no reason. Terrified and poor landing skill. I've never had experience like this. Now i only have 3 hours sleep before work."

Pros: "Great pilots, helpful & friendly crew. Appreciate WestJet humour. Smooth fast ride."
Cons: "Plane could use a good cleaning. Windows and table smudged and dirty."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "all the service was very good to us"

Pros: "Everything was excelente very nice personal."

Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"

Cons: "4 hour flight at dinner time. No food. What were they thinking? They ran out of sandwiches after the first row of passengers. Why even bother with menus when there is no food to support?"

Pros: "Check in was fast, on time, landed early, entertainment worked"

Pros: "The plane had free access behind every seat to charge devices and the service was friendly."

Pros: "How extremely nice the flight attendants were. They went above and beyond their scope of practice to ensure each person on the flight, felt as comfortable as possible. Thx #Nancy and #Heather"

Pros: "Flight was great. Calgary customs was awful. The lines were extremely long. We boarded our plane at 9:50 and departure was at 10."
Cons: "Customs at Calgary Canada was terribly slow. Almost missed our plane."

Pros: "Our choice to pay the upgrade to Plus seating was WELL worth the cost. My husband and I had never flown 'first class' before and thought on this almost 9 hour flight we would give it a try. Wow! Seat comfort was fantastic. Service was wonderful. Food was great. We were made to feel like royalty."

Pros: "flight on time"

Pros: "Awesome crew, chill experience !"

Pros: "A few days before our flight to Halifax which was originally scheduled with a stop over in Toronto, we received an email from Westjet that they were putting us on the direct flight. This enabled us to avoid the Toronto bottleneck and get to our destination on time. Thank you Westjet."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"

Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in is brutal. Ruins then entire experience."

Pros: "On time ...."
Cons: "West Jet satellite tv not working ..."

Pros: "Everything was easy"

Pros: "It was fine the next leg of the trip was cancelled"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seating too crowded"
Cons: "Consider removing seats to add more space per seat"

Pros: "That I was FINALLY able to get to my destination after a THREE AND HALF HOUR DELAY. Mechanical malfunctions, Get crew unable to find the pilots once the mechanical malfunction was corrected, sitting on the plane for an hour waiting for some "guy" to be located who went missing who was responsible for our weight to certified for flight. I didn't like anything."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "flight was on time!"

Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."

Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Poor flight. Staff kept the plane ridiculously warm the entire flight."

Pros: "Made it safely."
Cons: "Getting my phone blown up all day about delays on my two flights. Then sitting on the tarmac in the plane while the ground crew moved equipment around. Were they surprised a plane was coming in?"

Pros: "Delayed on the runway but overall good and smooth"
Cons: "Flight service was ok"

Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."

Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"

Pros: "Everything else was great - including rest of crew"
Cons: "plane departure was delayed after boarding because the pilot hadn't arrived from local residence or hotel to SFO in time - as a result we sat on tarmac for half hour or more before departure AND because we arrived late we sat on tarmac for awhile waiting for an arrival gate to open at DCA"

Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"

Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"

Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"

Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."

Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact we were staring at the plane for 3 hours waiting to take off and customer service and the gate staff was no help"

Pros: "Great crew!"

Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."

Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"

Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."

Cons: "2 days late"

Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."

Cons: "They were out of snacks. A little thing but got under my skin as unprofessional."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"

Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."

Pros: "Non-stop and comfort"
Cons: "No snacks at all :("

Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"

Cons: "4 hr. Layover"

Cons: "A few crew members was rude"

Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"

Cons: "Taking a flight on American Airlines when I booked one on Alaska was confusing. Not clear disclosed at the time of purchase. And hard to notice on conformation email."

Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to first class"

Pros: "While waiting to board an American pilot sat next to me and was very pleasant. I appreciated his conversation."
Cons: "Delayed getting out of Sacramento. The connection anxiety was intense. we landed as my connection was boarding. De-planing was chaotic and un informed. Seemed like we stood a good 10 mins before the doors opened...some info would have helped. Sometimes they give the gate numbers and everybody on that plane needed to go somewhere. the attendants were not helpful, the one announcer had an accent, a little hard to understand and asked that we all be kind...ok that I can do."

Cons: "Rude flight attendance werent prompt"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind"
Cons: "Comfort level was very low. I'm 6'0 y'all and with my seat in an upright posistion my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. My chair barely reclined which cause me to not get any sleep. These two comfort factors made it a restless uncomfortable flight."

Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."

Pros: "The staff was very congenial and helpful. Sense of humour too!"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"

Pros: "movies"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."

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: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Cons: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."

Pros: "Prompt.. Cleaning"

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: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"

Pros: "Calgary air port was very beautiful. I did enjoy movies."

Cons: "flight was delayed for 5 hours with 0 communication from staff. customers were only given a $10 coupon and then encouraged to buy another flight with only 10% off..."

Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."

Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."

Pros: "My flights went very smoothly with no delays. Flight attendants were receptive and attentive."

Pros: "Nice service, flight was on time and can't complain. :)"
Cons: "Nothing to really put in here. Only a short flight and everything was above board. Sorry, no rant or raving today. Maybe next time."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "For such a long flight some free snacks would be nice"

Cons: "They could have done the boarding different. There was a bit confusion about when to board."

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!"

Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Food was simple and bland. I was not allowed more than 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 hr flight -- what is that?"

Cons: "We got held up in Calgary due to the fact they lost everyone's checked bags then we finally got to LA they still had lost them. They told us they would have the bags to us in a matter of hours but it took 3 days."

Pros: "but only a few minutes late arriving ..."
Cons: "Boarded on time then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for the water truck."

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)."

Pros: "Crew was great!! Smooth landing!!"

Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, too hard not enough recline. Not enough food considering we paid alot"

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!!!"

Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."

Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."

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!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."

Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."

Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."

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."

Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"

Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."

Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"

Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."

Pros: "Loaded quickly,"

Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"

Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."

Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"

Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"

Pros: "All aspects of the actual flight were good. The flight attendants were pleasant and professional and the food choices were good."
Cons: "The flight we had booked was cancelled. Were were rebooked on a different flight - the time was good as it got us home when we were supposed to arrive. The changed flight involved an additional transfer, which was stressful because of tight timeline."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating."

Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"

Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"

Pros: "I liked that there was a price for a basic economy ticket considering I can easily fly without a carry on or checked bag. This is a great deal and worth the savings for me as a flyer."
Cons: "The process for vetting those individuals with basic economy tickets is slow, inefficient and seems to make the United employees irritated and less willing to help their guests. While I do not want to see the price go back up, I do think United needs to figure out a way to handle the check-in process for those with basic economy tickets without forcing them to stand in a line with those checking bags. it slows down the check in process for everyone, including those at normal priced fares."

Cons: "No one told us at the gate I was told to go to included on my ticket that it had been changed. I almost missed my flight if I had not asked an assistant at another gate. Then when I got to the correct gate I asked that assistant why there was no announcement of the change. He proceeded to tell me I didn't need to yell at him. That was unprofessional, disrepectful, and bottom line rudeness."

Pros: "Seating grouped in twos. Return trip. The stewardesses were friendly and delivered with humor."
Cons: "Nothing free. Plane seemed a little old"

Cons: "Flight had mexhanical problems. Waited in plane for 90 minutes then we came off the plane. I changed flights...still waiting for my bags."

Pros: "Great stewardess"
Cons: "Entirely too hot in the plane"

Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I was not able to board the fist flight because i got there one hour before the flight left. I drove 2 hours to catch my second plane and because i did that my entire ticket was cancel forcing me to pay $341.00 to purchase another ticket"

Pros: "Great crew, took good care of passengers, lots of drinks available, direct flight with a decent price. The crew was helpful getting everyone seated."
Cons: "The crew had just spent an hour passing out drinks, which is great, but no one could use the rest room. Tnen the seatbelt signs were flipped on to prepare for landing which wasn't for another hour. So no one was allowed to use the restroom for the last 2 hours of flight after all those great drinks, and kids were crying, it was a mess."

Pros: "Not much. We were late so United gave us free TV access during the flight."
Cons: "The flight was late and let space was very little. We only had one drink and one cookie for a 5+ hour flight."

Pros: "On time, baggage was handled well."
Cons: "Seats were way too crowded, especially for a 5 hour flight."

Pros: "Love business class on the 757"

Cons: "Card reader for direct tv didn't work"

Pros: "Everyone was pleasant, flights were on time, no baggage lost, very little turbulence."

Cons: "Flight is delayed wonder why I paid for my luggage and my two small suit case not even 25 kilos each , thought limit is 50?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Multiple delays, rerouted 2 times, multiple seat changes"

Pros: "I didn't enjoy my trip."
Cons: "Intentionally delaying my flight out of Newark to Syracuse. My flight from Sacramento to Dulles was stuffing with little leg room. This crew was also very unfriendly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 minutes past when they began to board no effort to try to help with getting on or another flight. Had plenty of time to get through security no call no assistance to find another flight NOTHING! No care to help."

Cons: "Very negative about this company they did two times cancelation, at first was problem with lights in plane and we stay over an hour, then they say that the airplain has mechanical problems and we waited about one more hour, then they returned us to airport and we waited one more hour, finally after 3 hours they start to board us but service was horrible so rod boarding people. So I hade meeting with singing contract in the morning, I was late contract cancelled and I lose my money..... The company did not any compensation. I'm so Negative, negative, about this company, not recommended will never have again"

Cons: "Flight delayed by shear winds Tight connection made getting food not workable"

Pros: "Late boarding, ZERO ENTERTAINMENT when you can pay the same price for American that provides television, old uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and attentive"

Pros: "This portion of my journey was fine."
Cons: "I have zero idea why your entertainment set up wont work on android devices. that sucked!"

Pros: "The entire service from boarding to flying was efficient and punctual."
Cons: "The snacks and no beverage, however I understand the flight was super short."

Cons: "Long delay due a wheelchair. Really? You've never had a wheelchair on board before? Yes, this one did have batteries, but is that so unusual? Our delay was over an hour."

Pros: "Nice staff clean planes"
Cons: "Seats too small no in flight entertainment in first class."

Pros: "On time departures and early arrivals"

Pros: "They put me and my son in the very last row of the airplane. I realize this is probably the only way I could afford to fly so I will put up with it, but it isn't very comfortable for 73 year old woman."

Pros: "It was just a nice flight stewardess were nice. just a nice time thank you guys."

Pros: "The crew was very nice as we got on."
Cons: "As usually United over booked and even though I brought my ticket in advance I some how did not have a seat assigned to me when I checked in. Most of the plane had boarded before I had a ticket in my hand. The agent was rude as she could be because I didn't understand how that's possible for me not to have a seat. I think that it's absolutely ridiculous that it's even possible to over sale a plane since there's obviously only a certain number of seats. I think it's ridiculous that people have to offer up their seat and take another flight, I chose a flight time because that's when I wanted to leave and get to where I was going for a reason. No other industry is allowed to treat their customers this way so why does the airline industry do it? Also there's no tv or movies for us to watch while in a 4 hour flight."

Cons: "I didn't like hearing the overhead storage will soon cost."

Pros: "The size of a first class seat"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not function properly. Seat cushions were worn out. The customer service representative was not able to complete my check in for the international segment."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Have to pay for movies/ shows"

Cons: "Three rolling delays in departure, and we landed the ground crew couldn't find stairs for us to deplane. Waited 30-minutes til we finally used the plane's stairs. Sigh- just makes one wonder about their commitment to getting flight ops right..."

Pros: "The flight & crew were great"
Cons: "A cookie? C'mon man. I couldn't download the United app & didn't know I had to."

Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and seemed to have a bit more room. The staff was professional and courteous."
Cons: "The plane was 2hrs delayed but that was due to weather. The food was over priced and not good."

Cons: "The fact I had to buy a tv package when on my previous"

Cons: "Delayed, uncomfortable seats, bad landing"

Pros: "Routine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Landing delay due to another United planes mechanical issues, terrible follow up customer service. Worst airline out there."

Cons: "No negative comments."

Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats in a completely full flight. My seat didn't really lean back. The man next to me kept spilling over into my space. Terrible flight, especially for a red-eye."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The emergency landing. The horrible customer service."

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Coming home"

Pros: "United Airlines had a delayed flight I was there I checked in..... I looked at the reader board which told me 6:05p depart..... I went to the restroom came back the flight team had already arrived pulled out and left .....those bastards left"

Cons: "Flight was delayed several times resulting in connecting flight being missed."

Pros: "They moved my connecting flight as my first flight was delayed and there wouldn't be enough time to make the connection. They initiated it so I didn't even have to ask the question and they put me on a better flight."
