Cons: "The landing at SFO was very hard and a couple of was made very scared startled sounds!!!!"

Pros: "The plane was late in arriving and we were hard pressed to make our connecting flight. A stewardess made an announcement requesting everyone without a connecting flight remain seated until those of us with tight schedules got off. Most everyone was courteous and waited. Thus we, and many others, were able to make our connecting flight. We really appreciated the assistance."

Pros: "Polite, if overworked, staff. Seating on the new 900-model airplanes is pretty good. Really like that a passenger can sign up for a seat at no extra cost as the time of the booking. Do not change this! Really like that staff get families and wheel-chair bound folks on board first. I fit into neither of these categories, but it is the right thing to do."
Cons: "Boarding inefficient; only one person to take tickets as passengers are trying to board the plane. Why not have 2? One Alaska Air person on each side of the runway. One hour delay on return flight. Potentially it could have been another 3 hours. And the plane would have flown in to Oakland or San Jose, not SFO as scheduled. At first the passengers were not told why. Later the crew told us that it was due to fires in No. California and that instrument landings were being required at SFO which meant longer times. With so many Americans traveling these days, provide more seating. Even folding chairs or fold-down seating along the windows would be helpful. Provide more outlets to charge electronic gear while waiting. For faster plane loading, recommend line up by rows such as, yes that one, Southwest does. 900-model airplanes: Lighting is lousy. Fold-down trays cannot be pulled closer to the seat :-("

Pros: "The complimentary food the crew gave us."
Cons: "Have no complaints"

Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for 1.5 hours prior to departure because the plane was too light. This should be something that is determined prior to boarding the plane."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable flight did not look old like Sun Country haha. Clean seats and very friendly attendants."

Pros: "Clean new planes. Good service."

Cons: "The idea for tablets as in-flight entertainment is one that I hope does not gain too much traction."

Pros: "The in flight cookies were deliscious"
Cons: "I arrived to my gate about a half hour before boarding was set to start. An employee greeting me recommended I use the restroom because the gate was down an elevator and in a portion of the airport that did not have accessible restrooms or food options. She cautioned against returning late later than ten minutes before boarding. I returned about ten minutes before the scheduled boarding, only to be told there would be a delay, which wouldn't be an issue except that it took over an hour and sounded like a standard, foreseeable safety process due to the plane being out of the country prior to our flight. Then we were shuttled to the plane on a frigid bus, which at one point stopped so suddenly several passengers and baggages were sent to the floor. And then, after finally taking off, the in flight wifi did not work. After landing in Portland, there was a 45 minute delay because "a vehicle is parked in our gate." Ultimately, we flew safe and sound, but the discomfort caused by the cold bus transports, poor bus driving, foreseeable delays, and a parked vehicle was really unacceptable. After this experience, it will be hard to choose Alaska Airlines in the future."

Cons: "Better vegan snacks available for purchase would be great."

Pros: "Same as before."

Cons: "We had to take a bus to our airplane. It took off a full hour late and it seemed mostly due to horrendously slow gate operations"

Cons: "They cancelled my original flight"

Pros: "The service was fine."
Cons: "On the airline website it said that flights to OC flew out of the international terminal but they don't. Then the flight took off 1/2 hour late at least."

Cons: "lost luggage.......two days...............................19 miles away."

Pros: "The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!"
Cons: "I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers."

Cons: "It's confusing that SFO to SNA is in international. I almost missed my flight after running to the air train in a mad dash after going through security in domestic Alaska. Stressful..."

Pros: "As the flight was delayed, staff made sure we had water and snacks in the terminal and kept us up to day. Kudos!"

Pros: "The staff was super friendly and the plane was new. It felt brand new."

Pros: "1. Boarding appeared streamlined. 2. Plugs ins for tech. 3. Coffee smelled amazing. 5. Seat size seemed larger than most airplanes."
Cons: "1. Wifi or gogo did not connect. 2. It was a tad bit cold."

Pros: "On-time departure and no hassle boarding policies."

Pros: "Free movies, able to text in flight"
Cons: "Annoying seat neighbor with bright light and computer screen on during entire late night flight."

Cons: "The delay of 45 minutes to about an hour inside the plane."

Pros: "Excellent service. I would fly this airline again!"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I didn't try the food or entertainment."

Pros: "Would be better to allow blue Tooth headsets to view tv/movies did not have wired head phones and did not want to purchase them."

Cons: "1 hour delay. I asked. Front desk said it was due to sfo fog. Me: Isn't it 2017? They have radars now; I have flown from Boston under severe snow storms. Yes. I have."

Pros: "Staff was great, loading and unloading of plane was swift"
Cons: "There's absolutely no way to be comfortable flying while fat and wide unless you have first class seat money. WHY DO THE SIDES NOT GO UP? I had a hard plastic seat divided lodged in my outer thigh with no hopes for comfort for over an hour, I cried from the pain."

Cons: "I like that they have the power supply for the electronics on board."

Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"

Pros: "Hard to find much good to say. The flight crew did their best on a packed flight."
Cons: "The boarding in sfo was horrendous. I finally made the flight with 5 minutes to spare. No room for my carry on so stewardess helped (?) and stowed for me. My bag was supposed to be available in Portland but was not. Alaska personnel couldn't find it and I was told to board my last flight to Bellingham and it would be on the flight. It wasn't so had to file a claim in Bellingham and it arrived about 12 hours later. How do you lose carry on???!!"

Cons: "the meanest most rude racist hostess ever! her insinuations and degrading way of speaking to me left me speechless. i will file a format complaint and might even take it further."

Pros: "Over an hour late leaving San Francisco, over an hour late leaving Seattle! One delay after another. Spent more time in airports than on planes"
Cons: "Delays!"

Pros: "very comfortable seats and comfortable plane in general."

Pros: "On time, plenty of carry on space, nice attendants, no stress."

Pros: "The crew on the flight was very friendly. Pilot was very informative."
Cons: "Flight was relocated to a different terminal."

Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."

Pros: "Service was solid. I liked the $12 voucher to use at the airport while waiting for 2.5 hour delayed flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay"

Pros: "There's not much to say.The flight was short, only a couple of hours, and I slept thru the small goodies' handouts. Anh their WIfi is free."

Pros: "By far and away the kindest domestic service professional musicians and their unique flying requirements-thank Y'all for being so kind!"

Pros: "Seats were comfy"
Cons: "Delayed and no head rest tv screens :( Flew with my two kids those sure make a difference on how my flight goes"

Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the professionalism the ticket people at the counter. they were very helpful and very pleasant. I like both alaska airlines and virgin America. I never have a problem when I fly with them."
Cons: "the only thing that was unpleasant was my boyfriend was missing a phone charger and some cigars out of his suitcase. it must of happened through customs or the baggage handling."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour due to maintenance. We finally boarded with good news that it would take us just an hour and twenty five minutes from SFO to SEA. But then there was another delay on the strip for an hour. Then the off boarding process was extremely slow as well. Was just felt like a very long night."

Pros: "The cabin was miserably hot"

Pros: "My flight was delayed by two hours, but I got to go on the earlier flight (that left at my original time), and they even gave me a Premium seat!"

Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."

Cons: "Great flight"

Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"

Pros: "The flight landed early. Check-in staff were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a debacle. Flight was oversold. Passenger had trouble boarding when their group was called."

Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."

Pros: "Everything! I appreciate that the ticketing agent helped me get an earlier flight and I appreciated the gate agent making sure I had a good seat! I love Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing honestly"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Kat and the other stewards were very friendly."
Cons: "Maybe the option for free upgrade to first class if flight is not full??"

Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."

Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"

Pros: "Crew was amazing."

Pros: "The seats are probably the most comfy of all the flights I’ve taken. All the crew was super nice."
Cons: "On my delta app it said we’d have the TVs again but we didn’t have any this time."

Pros: "The crew asked a passenger to move so we could all sit together. It was awesome. :)"

Cons: "Duration"

Pros: "Good snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Delta is my favorite airline. Smaller planes with two seats two a row."
Cons: "I was told to check my luggage even though there was still overhead bin space."

Cons: "Delta always has 1 or maybe 2 people checking everyone in, including the baggage drop. So, EVERYONE has to wait for one person to finish checking in the first class passenger with a thousand needs. Very poor service as is their norm."

Pros: "Extra leg room was great"
Cons: "Entertainment system was flickering"

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."

Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"

Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."

Cons: "Z"

Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"

Pros: "Good clean aircraft. Fairly comfortable seats. Even had a power outlet in my row. Not too bad for an aircraft from the late 70s."
Cons: "for some reason, i had to pay to gate check a bag. It didnt seem like anyone else did while boarding my flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice, the snack was pretty good. Good air conditioning."
Cons: "Didn’t turn off overhead light. It’s usually off most of the flight."

Pros: "Travel got delayed by an hour but we were satisfied by the crew and food"
Cons: "The delay of the flight. Not sure on the reason"

Pros: "No food, no entertainment but the crew were nice and the process was painless. Recommended"

Pros: "I got a good seat from LA to GTA on 1st jan. it was in the front and spacious and I was also served food."

Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."

Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"

Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"

Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"

Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"

Cons: "Delay over one hour."

Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."

Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."

Pros: "Courtesy seating"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."

Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"

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."

Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"

Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."

Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"

Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."

Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "Landed early"

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...."

Cons: "first time taking a westjet flight and we sat on plane for 2 hours before takeoff. disappointing"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "There was no entertainment for those of us without a compatible mobile/tablet device (I have a Nokia, therefore can't access the app). As always no complimentary meal but that's becoming a norm in most companies - strange how the prices don't really go down though... Seats were hard and unconfortable"

Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour and then after landing baggage took a long time to come in. There were a lot of people gathered by the time baggage arrived and caused chaos."

Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful and kind. Keep up the good work! !!"
Cons: "Not a thing."

Pros: "Great service, on time, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Could improve the snacks quality."

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

Cons: "They automatically gave me the window seat"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed which led to our rental car gone"

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: "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"

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

Pros: "We did not have to wait long in Calgary after landing and arriving at our luggage carousel. Our two bags were not only first off the belt but side-by-side and we were away in no time-- that never happens!"

Pros: "Good helpful crew. Reasonably sane boardingon a full d flight."

Pros: "Everything was shipshape and organized. Every crew membe r we talked with seemed knowledgeable and friendly. Good value."

Pros: "The plane had free access behind every seat to charge devices and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Bag fees and the process to check in bags was long even though we had checked in the day before."

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: "The flight was pretty good specially during landing"

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."

Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"

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

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

Cons: "Smallest plane ever. Absolutely no leg room or overhead space."

Pros: "The flight back to Columbus made up for the flight from CLT to SJC."
Cons: "This was a multi city, round trip starting out of CLT. My connection was way too close, and we missed the connection due to a mechanical problem. The lines to get vouchers were super long, and the hotel was not the best. It was way after midnight when I got to the hotel, and I did not feel safe staying at a Quality Inn. I had to walk to my room outside, and had leave in the morning in the dark as well. I was traveling alone. Please put your passengers in a better hotel, closer to the airport. I did not expect that from American Airlines."

Pros: "Flight attends are very friendly."

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."

Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."

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."

Pros: "Flight was routine except that I was astonished and pleased that the movie was “Love Simon”. Thank you American for maybe helping to change some attitudes in the center of the country."
Cons: "The food is still laden with gluten. The only gluten-free option was peanuts."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. Flight crew arrived late further delaying trip. Connecting flight missed. Promised hotel reservation by American were non-existent when arriving in Dallas. Had to try to sleep in airport. Will never willingly fly American again"

Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."
Cons: "Wasn't a dislike, but would have liked to board a little earlier with kids of age 5, 7, and 9. However, all was fine and staff were pleasant."

Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."

Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"

Pros: "I was taking students and we had seats all over but they rearranged so my students could sit together. It was a nice flight with a friendly crew."

Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."

Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."

Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"

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: "Flight boarded on time and landed 30 minutes early. Best part is the gate was open in Chicago so we truly arrived early. Flight crew was great too. Very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"

Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"

Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"

Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."

Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."

Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"

Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"

Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"

Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."

Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."

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."

Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."

Cons: "Looks ghetto and no wifi"

Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."

Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"

Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"

Cons: "No video screens for entertainment. If you want to use in flight entertainment, you need to download the Air Canada app prior to boarding."

Pros: "Everyone and everything was outstanding! Completely opposite of every experience I've ever had with Air Canada! They finally get it! Treated us like we were people and valued customers! Amazing!"

Cons: "Entertainment choices limited compared to the past. Very few recent releases (they now have "new to Air Canada" releases and they can be decades old"

Pros: "They had vegan options if you called ahead which was a nice and the flight crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "There was not enough space unless you sat in the front row."

Pros: "Price!"
Cons: "Poor Customer service! My baggage arrived later on the same day I had arrived..., but I didnlt get it till 2 days later. There were or apology or announcement about the reason of my flight delay (2 hrs). I was told by a customer rep on the phone a few days before ny flight that I didn't need eTA to transit, but I needed it! I had to obtain it at the airport counter on the day of my flight.. I was very close to miss my flight.... Due to the delay, many customers missed connection flights, but there was no clear guidance to where to take care of the matter... I was ery disappointed.."

Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."

Pros: "I love the new Boeing 787 planes! This was the smoothest flight ever, both from Vancouver to Tokyo and back again. The new planes have the dimmable windows, which are so cool! And, each seat has it's own screen with free movies, TV, flight info, etc. Also, the flights were on time!"

Pros: "One of the most spacious flight experiences I've ever had, enough room to stretch out for my 6 foot self. My checked luggage arrived safe and sound when I landed in Vancouver."
Cons: "On my 5 hour flight from Toronto the air Canada rouge website wouldn't work on my laptop despite troubleshooting many times. I was connected to the wifi... but didn't gain access to the website. I would've liked to eat on the plane but having to pay $7+ for a sandwich alone isn't something I'm interested in. It would be nice to at least get a free snack while flying across Canada. Oh well, I guess I'll starve."

Pros: "Food and cocktails included alongwith entertainment"
Cons: "Hour late .. departure delayed ..pilots caught in traffic"

Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"

Pros: "Inexpensive flight, good connections, decent food, and professional and friendly flight attendants and service."

Pros: "Cordial service."
Cons: "Seemed understaffed to serve customers quickly on a short flight"

Pros: "Helpful and considerate staff when my friend was sick"
Cons: "The delays to leaving the airplane port."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very economical; bland minimal food; no complimentary wine. Flew with Air NZ to auckland in April; food and wine offered throughout flight. Flight attendants didn't smile or engage with passengers; treated service like a job they had to do"

Pros: "Roomier"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "Flight delayed, did not leave Vancouver until after we were supposed to land in Portland. No tv or wifi"

Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Dallas due to crew members arrived late."

Pros: "Business Class on the Dreamliner 787 was a great experience. The flight crew was great. Everything at Pearson and at YVR went smoothly today."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "My bag was delayed and I end up paying to buy a pant from sports chek and now when I am trying to connect with Air Canada flight to make a claim, they are not even responding to my request."

Cons: "We had a 5 hour delayed flight. We received no notification that our flight would be delayed so we were stuck waiting on the airport for 5 hours, which forced us to cancel evening plans with friends that night because the flight landed in Vancouver at 3am the next morning and we didn't get to our Airbnb until around 4-5am. The crew seemed disorganized."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for several hours, while the crew assured us it was on the way. When it landed they still said it was being prepped. Then at 10pm or so, they said it was cancelled. Then we waited another hour and a half to speak to representatives and get our hotels. Then another hour to the hotel to go to sleep. Because I had to be back at the airport in 7 hours to catch the next flight. It would have taken me 2 hours to drive to Seattle from Vancouver."

Pros: "Wonderful staff and service! I was very comfortable on the larger airplane so I didn't feel anxious. Excellent ratings on everything for Air Canada!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."

Pros: "Overall service & friendliness"

Pros: "Flight was good, decent food and drink"
Cons: "the delay caused ua to miss connection and had to be rebooked"

Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"

Cons: "I only had one gripe about this flight and my one other flight on Air Canada Rouge; the overhead bins are very poorly designed. I purchased a carry on bag specifically to meet their regs, yet it had it go in the bin longways, taking up a ton of room. The bins are tall, which is wasted space, when what they really need is another 1-2" in depth."

Pros: "Inexpensive, got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "All food and headphones cost extra on a 6 hour international flight."

Pros: "The plane was comfortable. Staff was great."

Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"

Pros: "nice lie flat beds."
Cons: "it was all good."

Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."

Pros: "The staff and service were excellent!"

Pros: "Treated well and basically enjoyable flight, which is saying something on an eleven hour flight."
Cons: "On the return flight we arrived an hour late, and though we were told that they were holding our connecting flight, it left on time, five minutes before we got to the gate."

Cons: "Food was purchase only."

Cons: "One of my three flights was unnecessarily delayed by two hours, enough that I missed my last connection and had to stay overnight in Vancouver. There were no technical complications or weather complications. It was simply because something had been misscheduled and the flight crew needed a longer rest time between flights. This is completely avoidable, and the attendent who checked me in even said so. While the hotel and shuttle were paid for, Air Canada only gave me a $7 breakfast voucher, which was only redeemable at the hotel's measly breakfast counter rather than anywhere in the airport. For the unnecessary delays I had to deal with, i should had received more credit. This was an utterly disappointing travel experience."

Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. Entertainment system was also mediocre which keep shutting down and have to again select your movie and forward it :("

Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "Once again, they were late which meant that we missed our connection in Vancouver and had to overnight there."

Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."

Pros: "Everything was solid."
Cons: "There was no WI-FI which was inconvenient. The crew was good...could have been nicer on the way from Newark to Vancouver."

Cons: "Poor entertainment selection for such a long flight. Very little food for Sydney/ Vancouver leg and I am small eater."

Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable..."
Cons: "Plane windows were really dirt... staff was a bit rude..."

Cons: "I was NEVER TOLD I would need a transit visa to fly through Canada. I was denied boarding in Entebbe by British Air and had to rebook and pay for another flight on a different airline that didn't fly through Canada. Who has another $1,700 in their pocket to cover such expense? A terrible financial hardship. I will NEVER use Kayak again to book travel."

Pros: "Free TV."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Guy behind me was loud and kept kicking/pushing my seat."

Cons: "your app is useless because it didn't even notify me on the changes to my flight."

Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."

Cons: "They wouldn't offer me any change of the flight unless I paid more than double what I originally paid for the airfare. I just lost an entire airfare because they're change fee's are too much, and they are also not allowing me to change the flight to cheaper prices that I've found available on both Kayak and Air Canada. I will never fly Air Canada again."
