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."

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: "appetizer plate and the service by the wonderful flight attendant Kristy. she was very friendly, kind and generous. 5 stars to her. thank you Kristy!"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Medical emergency on board, crew kept calm. Luckily there was a doctor on the flight, he and the crew attended to the passenger. Reassuring to see such a professional team."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "preferred a friendlier cabin staff, lousy in flight magazine, rushed service, good for airline cost wise, but will choose another carrier when flying to the Evergreen state ... Yes i will pay more for more, when flying we have a choices, you will NOT be mine $"

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

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: "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."

Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful."

Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"

Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"

Cons: "My monitor isn’t really working after rebooted. And the audio hole wasn’t tight enough"

Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"

Pros: "No delays..arrived early"
Cons: "Restrooms were dirty"

Pros: "Food was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 40 minutes. We could hardly catch connecting flight"

Cons: "3 hours delay"

Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"

Pros: "The check in reminder is easy and helpful"

Pros: "That Tillamook cheese and fruit plate was nicely done. A pleasant surprise."
Cons: "We had to wait at the gate on arrival"

Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."

Pros: "I liked the movies and overall entertainment available to the passengers."
Cons: "The food selection needs a poultry option."

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."

Cons: "Didnt fly from San Francisco to Atlanta"

Pros: "Quiet, quick, no issues"
Cons: "Slow boarding. Slowest boarding everr. Maybe not enough overhead space, doesn't make sense how there is not enough overhead space while calling zone 2 passengers."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"

Pros: "Once aboard, flight went without a hitch and flight crew was attentive"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options need to be expanded - I've run out of movies that I want to watch!!!"

Pros: "Polite crew, clean plane, smooth reservation and seat selection process"

Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."

Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."

Pros: "Ground team was amazing--efficient, pleasant, rapid turnaround"
Cons: "Incoming plane was 1.5h late and there was no meaningful explanation (saying that the plane was late coming in bc it was late getting to its prior stop isn't really an explanation)"

Cons: "Announcements at the gate could be more clear."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Free meals! Free snacks! Free movies! Comfortable seats and friendly flight attendants!"

Cons: "entertainment system had terrible touch response flight was delayed by 1.5hrs"

Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "I've never seen such a modern and easy to use entertainment system before. All the movies are complimentary."

Cons: "half-broken screen, couldn't access anything on the left side"

Pros: "That it's over"
Cons: "the 1 hour delay, when we arrived we sat for another hour and I missed my international flight"

Pros: "Plane was a newer one, clean, and the stewards were nice."
Cons: "New seating was terrible. The seats are so jammed together that my knees were pushed up into the seat in front. How can anyone be comfortable with this kind of seating arrangements?"

Pros: "Quick flight and we flew over Yosemite (where we recently hiked). Also, the free in-flight entertainment is such a nice addition! My wife and I had the seat open next to us, so it was very nice to have extra room in our row!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew service, attitude was much better compared to most US based airlines. Comfort+ has great perks."
Cons: "Aircraft was old."

Pros: "The crew were super helpful with my toddler and 5year old as I was traveling by myself. Everyone was very friendly and allowed me to board early as well as helped me when my toddler was crying to distract her. Service was fantastic! The plane was new and I really appreciated having entertainment I didn't have to pay extra for."

Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Corn nuts for snack. I'm allergic to corn. I get people want snacks on a flight and you can't make everyone happy. It was ok. I just said no to them."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "lie flat seats and linens were very comfortable"

Pros: "On time. No problems."
Cons: "Hard to understand what group was being called to board. No systematic lineup, just crowding around."

Pros: "Staff was friendly but Stern with customers that needed it"

Pros: "need to feed people more often and make the seats alittle more comfier but other then everything came out good looking forward in flying with delta again"

Pros: "Service is good. Flight on time."
Cons: "Don't like the chicken wrap which is dry and hard."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Charging money for window and aisle seats a new low"

Cons: "Apparently, using a third party source lost me the ability to choose my seat on both flights. The only book ahead options are ones I need to pay extra money for which feels like a scam. I won't be able to get a seat ahead of time on the way home either which will be an even longer flight (6+ hours) and will likely be stuck in a middle seat yet again. If this is the case with booking through third party sites, I won't do this again."

Pros: "The small scack/meal was excellent. Good service. Smooth flight. In-out-done! Good job Delta!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything negative. A long time standing by on runway waiting for departure."

Pros: "Big plane and fairly comfortable"
Cons: "It's more of a shuttle than a transcontinental. Seats are narrow with little leg room. Like all others you have to pay for everything. Delta terminal is not easy at jfk. Sfo is fine and works well All airlines are the same these days. Flights are uncomfortable and crew just throws out peanuts and water"

Cons: "The person taking tickets asked me to check my bag. I said ok and he instructed me to step aside and taking anything out of it that I might need. I did this and when I came back they had locked the doors."

Pros: "The boarding was quick and the gate agent was efficient"
Cons: "We not only left 45 minutes late, but there was no beverage service on the flight."

Pros: "On time. Arrived 30 mins early. New plane."
Cons: "Middle seat. Very crowded, could hardly work on my laptop. Food was not great. Had a turkey roll. Opt to pay for the $10 sandwich at the airport."

Pros: "Like delta have single tv, good coffe, will be better is from centro o South America , a time w connection and will safe"

Pros: "Every thing"

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

Pros: "Landed early"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and took great care of us. The food was surprisingly good and our seats were comfortable. It was worth upgrading to Premium for the extra legroom and other little perks."
Cons: "I really can’t think of a bad part...the customer service at check in was so easy; our checked bags were automatically transferred in Calgary, the crew was very friendly, food was good as was the wine and beer."

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: "Dinner service on the Calgary-London flight started very late and the cabin lights weren’t dimmed for several hours on this night flight."

Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"

Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."

Pros: "Mate"
Cons: "Late"

Cons: "Flight crew was rude"

Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."

Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."

Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."

Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"

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: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"

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

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

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: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"

Pros: "Great staff. Overall good considering the cheap flight."
Cons: "No free meal, the pizza ordered was terrible. No tv, only iPads for rent."

Pros: "Great seatmate. Friendly crew. That is a plus."
Cons: "Wish the seats weren't so tight and close to each other."

Pros: "I just love WestJet"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."

Pros: "Always friendly and helpful...great to see and experience!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Computers down delayed checkin. Items stolen from checked bags. Flight delayed. Lost bag on a flight with no transfers."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, the entertainment was good and flight was comfortable. I like being able to use my headphones with Bluetooth and use the iPad while taking off."

Pros: "Easy low volume airport palm desert"

Cons: "I am a tall person and the seating is just too darn close with absolutely no leg room for a tall person to fit comfortably in the seat. In fact, I could not even get the tray/table to come down level because my knees were too high and there was not enough distance between myself and the passenger seat in front of me to allow the tray table to come down completely and sit flat."

Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "Normal flight"

Pros: "It wasn't full and there was an open seat beside me"

Pros: "Always great crew members!"
Cons: "Power outage in Kamloops, causing a little boarding and seating issues, crew handled it well!"

Pros: "Flight on time. Crew pleasant and polite. Only complaint is being charged extras for baggage. I suffer from a handicap/ injury and as a result do not like to carry luggage on to the flight as it causes me issues. It is frustrating to buy a ticket and always have to pay an added fee when I get there. I would pay more or pick another airline if baggage was included for me."
Cons: "Pay for check baggage. Because of a handicap I prefer to not carry baggage onto the flight. See above."

Pros: "Direct flight and was cost effecient"
Cons: "Gate construction made it hard to find where to go"

Pros: "Crew was great! I've decided on flights over 5 hours, upgrading as much as you can is important."

Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"

Pros: "Roast beef sandwich was great"
Cons: "Just because the crew is having a bad day they shouldn't take it out on the customer"

Cons: "Did not get TSN for the entire flight, even after we entered Canadian airspace."

Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were 3 hours late taking of so I missed my connecting flight. The staff are summer staff so know how to do very little. We got poor advice on changing flights, interminable slow to hey through to west jet themselves. The manager at the airport hid away until 15 minutes before boarding the late flight when he was due to come out with food vouchers, the catch, you had to leave and go back out through security to use them. Seriously, who would do that 15 minutes before boarding? And then my bag didn't arrive. ..."

Pros: "I like the staff and services"
Cons: "It's all I like west jet"

Cons: "There was no entertainment. But wifi was available if that is what you consider entertainment."

Pros: "Love it. Friendly and nice. Thank for making this flight rock!"

Pros: "Great staff. Smooth flight. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Is any plane seat comfortable??? Need better ergonomics for knees and necks!"

Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "No place to charge phone on any flights"

Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."

Cons: "The seats, are getting Narrow. Very constricting."

Pros: "On time. Warm greetings from the pilots. New aircraft, clean, great entertainment."

Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"

Pros: "Seats we fine"
Cons: "Delay 2 hours"

Pros: "Service and boarding was smooth and friendly."

Pros: "The flight attendance kindly asked the passengers to allow for the people on the back with very thigh connections, due to stupids delays, to deplane first, but of course almost no one listened and as soon the plane reach the gate everyone stranded up clogging the hallway. There should be more education to the passenger in general. If you don't have a connection, just stay put for an extra 5 minutes, is nothing crazy to do."
Cons: "Waiting area completely packed, now sits available at all. Delays, a delay for weather or mechanical issues is understandable, but just because too many human factors, is unfortunately."

Cons: "Breakfast - lots of sugary items"

Cons: "The worst flight we ever been. Delayed for a long time. We wasted our two days of vacation."

Cons: "American Airlines had put my luggage on a flight earlier than me and is still NOT FOUND."

Pros: "Nice seats, good food, good service"

Pros: "The flight was great. Lots of movies to choose from. Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "They moved our flight around multiple times. We first had a layover in Chicago then through multiple emails and one phone call they just flew us straight to London with no layover. It all worked out it was just stressful not knowing exactly when we were flying out and if we were going to make our connecting flights. It did work out and we did make it."

Pros: "The crew has invited my kids to take a picture with them. My wife and I have been impressed."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Should have booked AA instead of BA."
Cons: "AA couldn't find BA reservation. poor integration of services"

Pros: "The very long TSA line was very fast. Good job TSA. Flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Found the first class seat capsule uncomfortable after about three n hours. Certainly would not want it for Transocean flights."

Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"

Pros: "Wonderful and super friendly crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute. We were applicable to switch with another couple who were in the same situation as us....."

Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."

Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."

Pros: "N"

Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."

Pros: "Great service great entertainment to make long flight bearable"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "great flight"

Pros: "Seats were surprisingly comfortable"

Pros: "Smooth transition with our connecting flight"
Cons: "Plane didn’t feel very clean. Our tray tables were dirty Seats were not very comfortable. Food could do with a little help"

Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."

Pros: "New plane, early departures, nice crew, terrific entertainment system."

Cons: "I'm getting to Madrid 24 hrs after I was supposed to"

Pros: "I was comfy on Philly to Venice flight, no one was sitting next to me"
Cons: "Staff at Philadelphia was rude when I asked for upgrade options the desk attendant told me " you should have booked 1st class from the beginning" in a rude and belittling demeanor."

Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."

Pros: "I really like the 737..the seats were so comfortable. I miss the old school planes when things were quality. The seat declined further and the headrest was comfortable and not too tall. And I especially loved the service of our flight attendants. Overall this was a very quality flight."

Pros: "Lots on in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing, I pretty much just slept the whole time."

Cons: "Four and a half hours on board and just a cookie? Really!?"

Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"

Cons: "I got to Moscow, SVO. I didn't receive my bag. This sucks."

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The new baggage rule limits you to two bags in business on international flights☹️"

Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"

Cons: "You overbooked the flight"

Pros: "Pilot did good job in tricky conditions at landing."
Cons: "Wish food were served."

Pros: "Landing at destination"
Cons: "Plane, food,seat, entertainment and missing flight crew"

Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"

Pros: "Crew and promptness. Roomie seat."
Cons: "No cellphone charger. No movie screen at the seat."

Pros: "NOTHING"

Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."

Pros: "Probably just about the only domestic flight where you still get food in steerage."

Pros: "The accommodations. Loved the high tech tv and choices on the entertainment, as well as the more advanced reading lights. LOVED LOVED LOVED the charging ports available."
Cons: "The headrests/seats weren't very comfortable."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."

Cons: "Late by 40 min"

Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It was delayed for about a half an hour. Other than that it was great"

Cons: "I had booked an international flight with British Airways and it ended up being American Airlines. There was no notification of this change and I was not happy. I found AA to be subpar. The plane itself didn't have individual screens and my view was obstructed by other seats. The food was terrible and I got sick later, possibly from the bad airline food. Overall I got to my destination on time, but unhappy as I had chosen an airline and was forced to use another."

Pros: "Very little. The staff is polite but they have no information and really are not empowered they solve any problems"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour taking off due to final checks and luggage. In sprite of the pilot announcing smooth sky’s we had terbulence and seatbelts on for 60% of the flight. And when we arrived the luggage of at least 15 passengers, including mine, did not arrive. After waiting 45 minutes at the carousel for the luggage and another 35 at the priority desk I was informed that the luggage was not coming on the next flight but the next day. They apparently had run out of overnight bags so I had to buy a toothbrush and a t-shirt at the airport to sleep in. Now normally I would pack a carry on with the basic essentials for such a situation but this was a direct fight with 3 follow flights to the same destination..... I have no idea who votes for Air Canada or how many votes it takes to win the awards they keep claiming but there is something wrong..."

Cons: "My dad didn’t get on the plane because the previous one was late"

Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Meals & steward"

Pros: "There was no entertainment !"
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude no food or drinks No entertainment of any sort for long trips"

Pros: "The attendants were particularly helpful and clearly loved their job. One attendant, Melissa, was joyful and accommodating."
Cons: "The food was eatable but it was airline food."

Pros: "Clean plane. On time departure and arrival. Transport service as expected. This is the INTL review."
Cons: "Even coach class international flights typically have full food and beverage service, as well as in flight entertainment. There was ZERO in flight entertainment. And the beverage service consisted of coffee, tea and water. That's it. It would be useful to provide more details at time of booking."

Cons: "That had to be the most cramped, uncomfortable airplane seat I have ever been in. And the coffee was awful."

Cons: "No food on a 5 hour international flight!!"

Pros: "Aircraft was clean. Convenient connecting gates. Flight duration."
Cons: "- Meals sold in flight - Extremely poor inflight entertainment - Flight delayed no real explanation provided"

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

Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "My bag did not arrive at the same time I did. It was delivered several days later. I had to buy new clothes with my own money while I waited. Horrible experience."

Pros: "Departed on schedule"
Cons: "Very unfriendly flight attendent"

Pros: "The plane was spacious with comfortable seats. Entertainment selections were a highlight. I liked that they offered your buds. Not nearly as bad as United despite some customer service issues."
Cons: "Our tables were dirty so we could not set our drinks and food on them. When we were boarding, one of the crew members was yelling at an older Asian lady. She was in the wrong seat but she obviously did not speak English. She was also of the age where she could have had dementia. He said that she was responsible for holding up the plane and the boarding process. On the return flight, I encountered a very rude boarding agent. Her actions warranted an apology, but I did not receive one. She just would not look at me."

Pros: "Ability to charge my iPhone )"

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

Pros: "Good leg room even is coach."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Food and no tv on the seat didn't want to look own the whole time"

Pros: "Crew was nice though not very professional."
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Pay for food- embarrassing"

Pros: "A couple of flight attendants were really really nice. I am diabetic and ran into a bit of a problem, one was so sweet and caring about it and helped me out. I really felt safe with her."
Cons: "Regarding the same diabetic issue, another flight attendant could have cared less that I was in a bit of trouble. I needed to lay down in the flight attendant seats due to my issue and i heard two of the girls complaining about it."

Pros: "Did not like anything about Air Canada. Very unfriendly and Rude staff is not the exception, me and my family have encountered this each time we went on Air Canada( three times)"
Cons: "From the check in desks to the airplane the staff are generally very rude, dis respectful and lazy and unorganized. Not only to my family , we saw them do this to all."

Cons: "Flight departing Toronto to Amsterdam was cancelled without adequate compensation. Flight was supposed to depart at 8:45. Was delayed repeatedly then cancelled at 11pm. Air canada wasn't able to get us a hotel voucher until 1:45 am and hotel check in at 2 am. Complete disruption of travel plans. Customer service at Toronto airport was terrible."

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: "That staff was nice and helpful, they only had food for purchase but it tasted great and wasn't too pricey!"
Cons: "The plane should have been retired a year ago. It was an old airbus. Seating was uncomfortable, the entertainment systems outdated, and the aisles were cramped. Thankfully it was a short flight."

Pros: "Crew members were very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "We were delayed another hour on the tarmac for refuelling. Seems like they should have delayed boarding."

Pros: "Luggage was lost; have not received to date. Very upset, scheduled to attend a wedding tomorrow without clothes or any type of compensation to replace clothing. Vacation has been RUINED!!! Please help!!"
Cons: "Have no clothing other than what was worn on flight"

Cons: "Limited selection in entertainment"

Pros: "People were helpful & friendly"
Cons: "Timing between flights was not enough to make connection. Had to take next available flight."

Pros: "Okay flight, nothing special."
Cons: "Food?"

Cons: "the long delay in Montreal"

Pros: "Check in and boarding process ok."

Pros: "It seemed like a quick flight."
Cons: "Better food needed."

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

Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Didn't pick up dinner trays, when they passed out breakfast, one lady didn't bother to hand out the napkin or the bottle of water to people, while the lady going down the other aisle did. Greasy pice of cake and no napkin, and a red eye flight and no water? I saw them on the cart, I guess it was just too much work to hand them out!!!"

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: "We actually arrived alive."
Cons: "We arrived into London so late that we were forced to take a taxi at a huge expense. During the 3 hr delay the only food provided was a small bag of pretzels and water."

Pros: "That we arrived on time"
Cons: "The food was terrible, the service was grumpy, and one of the carts hit my shoe so hard that it tore it."

Cons: "I had legal rights to, as I tried to explain to the agents. They dismissed and mocked me, until 3 hours later. By that time I had missed my flight."

Pros: "Very nice people, seats large enough"
Cons: "impossible to work on my computer, plug without enough power turn off automatically"

Pros: "Full flight operated professionally and politely. Good range of food and drink for purchase only."

Pros: "I enjoyed the efficiency and friendliness of the crew and the timliness of the flights themselves as well as the boarding process."
Cons: "First flight: My headphones didn't work with the entertainment system and the only other option to watch what was on the tv was to purchase headphones. Also, the movie skeleton was somewhat limited. Also, it was a longer flight but there was no free food option"

Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful."

Cons: "The flight needed canada transit visa and you guys dint even said me. Moreover when I contacted vayama as my bookings were proceeded by them even they dint helped me and then I had to cancel my ticket. I expect you to refund my money because of your fault I could not board the flight and had a horrible experience"

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: "Some of the members of the crew were so nice"
Cons: "SFO to Montreal: no complimentary food; not even nuts. I was forced to check in my bag because it wouldn't fit in the tiny sizer."
