Cons: "Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight"

Pros: "The boarding was quick and the plane departed early."
Cons: "I had an exit row seat (21G). The seat felt like a church pew and the right armrest was lower than normal since it was mounted on the exit door. This was by far the most uncomfortable flight I've had. My back started to hurt even before the plane took off."

Cons: "It was the last row, could not sleep on it"

Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Out of everyone’s control Mother Nature"

Cons: "Loved it!"

Pros: "Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly."

Pros: "Crew was solid."
Cons: "Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport."

Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"

Cons: "Zero PPE or social distancing by crew"

Cons: "Sat on the tarmac way to long. Updates from crew weren’t frequent enough."

Pros: "A box was under my feet, not sure what it was. A part of plane! ATL - EZE uncomfortable Crew great in spite of ongoing turbulence!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, for unkown reasons."

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"

Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"

Pros: "Nice Airbus plane. Due to thunderstorm in Dallas, pilot not able to leave DAL to come to fly the plane in LAX on time. We delayed around 45 minutes. Otherwise, crews were professional and efficient. Excellent movies choices."
Cons: "Boarding announcement in SFO was bad. No one can hear what the agent announced. Random sequence of boarding with confusion. In LAX, we supposed to go to a different terminal by a bus. There is no guidance out of gate to assist passengers that transfer to get on the right gate on the right bus. In AUS, there is not any announcement for luggage belt. An announcement would be helpful to new arrivals to this airport."

Pros: "Cheese plate"
Cons: "TheyCharge me $25 for my bag and I’m at Delta sky Miles older plus the American Express platinum card holder it’s supposed to not be charged"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and hoped to make up for the pilot’s negligence."
Cons: "Boarding was weird with a lack of overhead bins and then the pilot was inconsistent with updates to safety issues. We were delayed by an hour and twenty mins and then had to wait on the tarmac for another plane to leave the gate. Feels like I wasted two hours in limbo."

Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "The waiting area at gate 47 is a joke. Doesn't anyone care that it was filthy and had 10 seats for passenger waiting to board their flight?"

Cons: "Call center tried moving us to later flight that was also delayed by 3 hrs despite telling us it was on time. Fortunately a gate agent moved us back to orig flight"

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: "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: "Excellent service and upgraded snacks in economy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight schedule and the various flight options with regardss to the number of departure and return flights."
Cons: "Delta flight crew complacency and the lack of on board options. I flew first class and the food options were very limited. The crew also seem to have the attitude as though the passengers should be automatically understanding and satisfied. This was mostly on the return flight, an all male crew."

Pros: "The t.v. 's at each seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Too crowded and seat mate stunk like pot , flight was good because we were 20 minutes late and flight crew very nice"

Pros: "Delayed 2 hrs"

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: "The crew did a great job of dealing with delays beyond their control and made sure we - and our luggage - made a connecting flight."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "They say us together (we had seats apart -- even though it stated our children are 4 & 1). They gave them wings and each an extra little snack. I felt they were supportive of us."
Cons: "Paying to check our bags!! We were forced to... too much stuff traveling with kids. It sucked to have to pay $50 when Alaska airlines saw we were struggling, they checked our carry one for free to ease our time in the airport!"

Pros: "the meal was OK and they served ice cream midway between SFO and JFK."
Cons: "Late departure. Long delay getting to the get because of congestion at Terminal 4."

Pros: "Comfort and boarding"
Cons: "Delay and food"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff at Delta was nice and courteous along with being clear for boarding zone instructions. Haven't had a problem yet with Delta! Also the pilot was great at landing so it was not as jerky as some flights I have been on."
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."

Pros: "Excellent trip. Provided ample food snacks and drinks."

Pros: "Flight very smooth.Just after landing,luggage pick up wait too long,almost after one hour later."

Pros: "Whoa, we flew Coach and had plenty of space! How marvelous to not be packed in; crew and passengers were wonderfully relaxed, and all went well despite turbulence on takeoff and landing. Great daytime flight experience with my toddler grandchild!"

Cons: "Boarding took too long - full plane and double seat booking changed 10 minutes early estimate to 20 minutes late"

"Too many delays from start to finish of the trip"

Pros: "Good boarding. The info I was given thru Kayak seemed to indicate my cheap ticket did not include any drinks or snacks, so I was prepared with my own for this long flight. So cookies/pretzels and juice, coffee, etc. were a pleasant surprise, Also the middle seat was empty."
Cons: "Clearer info on what was included in my ticket."

Cons: "Overall it was good"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Boarding was orderly and there was enough overhead space on this full flight. Even though the flight left later than schedule it was not a terrible delay. The overall experience was the opposite of my last flight on West Jet."

Cons: "My seats were preassigned and at 24 hour check In you have to pay to change from economy to economy into a available seat. Make no sense and is rude. Very disappointed in WestJet and I’m anElite member."

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tv"

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...."

Pros: "Crew was great . Seats not so much,"
Cons: "Maybe a movie for everyone."

Cons: "Let my golf clubs fly at no charge. Seat update at check in at no charge."

Pros: "for that price I'll fly west jet every time"
Cons: "some water or something was falling from the ceiling on my brother in the window seat on take off at the back of the plane was pretty gross"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "westjet is the only way to go."

Cons: "I was told I had time to run to washroom before boarding, and 5 min later the boarding area was empty and I was locked out. Plane was ready to leave me because the guy at desk forgot to tell them I wasn’t there yet. Thankfully I was able to hunt someone down to let them know I was there."

Cons: "2 hours late !!!!"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time, friendly Westjet crew as always."
Cons: "Tiny TV screens, no real food, seat cushion was so compacted it was uncomfortable."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Crew were very efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "No food on an international flight over 5 hours long? Every Asian airline offers free hot meals and tickets are cheaper than WestJet for a similar distance. I paid for 3 hours of Internet and ithe signal lasted 30 minutes into the trip. Money wasted. Seats were so uncomfortable, like vinyl seats in a 1970s car. My back and tailbone were aching after 30 minutes."

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."

Cons: "Need more leg room on board"

Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."

Pros: "I really enjoyed"

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

Pros: "Clean planes, positive and a bit funny attendants, easy in boarding. Service that is wonderful."

Cons: "Q400 - noisy, uncomfortable seating and lack of overhead storage"

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"

Cons: "Its a little cramped in the seats."

Pros: "Delayed 2hours 30 min"
Cons: "Never flying with wast jets any more"

Pros: "I liked the congenial attitude of the staff & flight attendants. The drinks were free for once."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "The flight attendant and my Plus seat were great. Flight was smooth."

Pros: "Very smooth flight!"
Cons: "None. All is great!"

Cons: "Food charges + hours to wait for a hot drink (tea)"

Pros: "Good flight plenty of water."
Cons: "Very nice. Nothing"

Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers at both the Mazatlan end and Calgary were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"

Pros: "They looked after us very well there was voter fraud hotel and meals"

Pros: "Almost on time - and upgraded to plus"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "service was great on both going and coming"

Pros: "I liked that the inside of the plane was new, bright, and modern. Really great craft."
Cons: "It was a propeller plane and it doesn’t say that when you book. And they only gave water and pretzels. Nothing else. No soda, no coffee, etc. I was interested in purchasing a snack on board and the stewardess said they don’t sell on the flight because it was so short (40 min flight time.) lgehixh I could understand, but AirCanda offered a variety of snacks and drinks during the same 40 minute flight, so not sure what’s going on."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped, uncomfortable."

Pros: "The Crew was excelent, WestJet has the best crew, very courteous and helpful unlike disgruntal AA crew. They also have the best price deals available. I highly recommend this airlines. Thanks"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you buy one of their tablets. Unerstandable given the type of fleets they use."

Pros: "Stewardess let me change seats to a cooler part of the cabin at the back of the plane."
Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."

Pros: "smooth, on time"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient, Crew was nice, competent and friendly. The Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "1. Unexpected 25$ checked baggage fee 2.No meal: They only served drinks, pretzels and hard cookies. Extra food needed to be paid for. 3.Older aircraft so no entertainment options other than TV and Movies. (no way to start, pause or end any movies or programs."

"1st flight was late by 19 mins. Due to immigration and customs we missed by 5 mins and 2 even 2 flight was delayed my 20 mins still they did not took us. We had to Wait at airport for 4 hours. Really bad experience."

Cons: "What happened to physical distancing? Flight was packed full."

Pros: "There was one crew member was passive aggresive and doing his best to annoy the whole trip, I had to get other crew involved, he was hitting on my friend as well....."
Cons: "This was a United flight sold as Air Canada to me and Lufthansa to my friend. This made check in twice as long since we went to the wrong counters. The quality was horrendous for an international flight and the entertainment system was broken. I paid atleast 50% more than I should have. Never fly UA"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Not being 3.5 hours late"

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..."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."

Cons: "SFO checkin was very poor. Had to go through 3 different check in agents and 2 terminals. Itinerary showed terminal 3 but the actual check in was at the international and with United! Need to improve on getting this direction communicated better from the start to end."

Pros: "Very roomy, comfortable seat, great service and a pretty decent meal for a two hour flight. The heated nuts are a nice touch."
Cons: "Few complaints, though the set back screen is certainly small compared to other airlines' offerings in Economy. (Emirates perhaps being the stellar outlier on this account.)"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "A comedy of errors from beginning to end! Couldn’t check in because of code share... finally succeeded After 2 hours of frustration Then in SFO my reserved & paid seats were given away, then I was taken off the next flight so I wasdenied boarding!"

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

Cons: "Onboard entertainment did not work. This 5 hour flight did not even offer a snack. Flight was late to leave, and then sat on the runway for 40 min on arrival. The Captain announced a "10 min wait". This was misleading."

Cons: "No food for an international flight"

Pros: "The crew was amazing - I fly a lot and they were dialed. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "It seemed like an older plane, I'm over 6 ft and my knees wedged into the seat in front of me before the person decided to recline their chair. Definitely not comfortable for an 8 hour flight. Two more inches would have changed a lot."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Flight was scheduled to take off at 1210 pm, delayed to 1510, delayed again to 1700 then delayed to 2110 and hen finally boarded at 2230 but the flight did not take off for an additional 2 hours making the total flight delay 12+ hours. My mom did not speak English and the staff at the boarding gate would not provide her a translator nor where they willing to talk to us over the phone to assist her. I understand that delays happen but the lack of assistance and multiple delays was alarming (with clear weather). Air Canada device over the phone was unprofessional as well when I called to discuss the lack of assistance we received."

Pros: "The pilots were professional, got us there on time and did a wonderful smooth landing."
Cons: "The flights attendants uniforms were wrinkled and old, tired and worn out looking, their behaviour was the same. They were pretty much tired and disinterested in their job. Time to hire new blood, get new, fresh looking uniforms, and there definitely should be a weight limit, I have seen flight attendants who have to turn sideways to get down the aisle comfortably, what on earth would they do in an emergency. Yes size does matter. Look to JAP airlines for style and dignity in the job. Having said that I love Air Canada and fly it as often as possible home."

Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."

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."

Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."

Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."

Cons: "The connection process at YYZ airport. You need to clear security twice in order to connect. Risk of missing flights got connection because the walk to terminal is long and security checkpoint is very inefficient and sllw"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment system including film festival movies and shorts to pass the time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Very poor pre-boarding area in San Francisco, but I don't think it's Air Canada's fault. Poorly organized seating in the pre-boarding"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They made me gate check bag because it wouldn't fit in bag sizer. Most bags wouldn't fit in sizer but I was singled out for no good reason."

Cons: "Disappointing and awful. My flight got 5.5h delayed before even leaving. I was not even notified about that. I hope to receive a refund because it was the biggest inconvenine Air Canada has ever caused me."

Pros: "The lady at the counter was very pleasant when she realized my dad had forgotten his wallet and offered him to put him on next flight if I didn't make it back in time with his wallet, I liked how she had made him feel better by showing him grace and mercy that his mistake was fixable."
Cons: "At SFO it is always a mess when you take a flight because you can either be in International terminal - that would be logical, since this is a us Canada flight but at other times you need to go to the united ticket counter instead (even though I get sent between the counters often I can't remember if this is terminal 3) - The lady in line was trying to get my dad to leave this line to go to the other counter line without asking about his specific flight, it caused an argument in my travel party because they thought she was right and I insisted we stay in this line. The lady didn't even acknowledge what I was trying to say and kept telling my dad to go to the other terminal when we were at the correct one. There is nobody that can seem to tell you which terminal to go to prior to arriving at the airport so it doesn't help when someone provides misinformation at the airport while in line. Travel can already Be stressful."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada pricing is same as other non budget airlines like British airways, Lufthansa but service is on par with budget airlines like Ryan Air. I'm amazed how they get away with it."

Pros: "The flights were on time, the seats were roomy, checkin went smoothly."
Cons: "The tray tables were filthy, there was food left in the seat pockets. Also there looked like dog feces on the ramp leading to the plane."

Pros: "Safety belt actually fit around my waist - I am a bigger person"
Cons: "I was on isle staff kept on bumping into me (not purposely) They need to take time to ensure they are not bumping clients"

Cons: "Gate 91 was allocated on boarding pass. It was switched to 95 Android did not inform anyone of the 10 pax waiting at gate 91. We were informed by one of the passenger that went to figuer out how Come that only 10 pax waiting at gate 91"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Boarding was very chaotic and our seats were originally booked together and someone needed up separate. In the end, the crew worked it out for us and we were satisfied."
Cons: "I've flown this airline a few times and the seats are pretty uncomfortable."

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: "I think a little more leg room compare to some economy flights."
Cons: "I was very unhappy that I could not sit with my husband both ways when we booked the flight together. And we got middle seats which we hate and requested aisle seats. We were also initially placed extremely far away and I was able to change seats to at least being closer, but not together. There was a couple that was throwing a fit that they weren't sitting together in my husband's aisle. The water they provided came from a pitcher and not a bottle and it tasted nasty. I did ask for hot tea on one of the flights and was told they had nothing hot. My tray table was dirty. Sticky stuff on the buckle of the seatbelt. Used plastic cup by my seat when boarding."

Pros: "Plane seats were comfortable with decent headrests and reclining. First class looked roomy, but I was in economy."
Cons: "There was water/condensation dripping from the roof onto my lap while I was sleeping, and I woke up with my entire thigh drenched. I was able to move to an open seat, but the "gentleman" (coughjerkcough) next to me obviously wasn't happy about the encroachment, so he coped by elbowing me in the side throughout the entire 5-hour flight. Every movement of his was an opportunity to punch me in the arm or shoulder, and I don't even take up that much space, so he was literally reaching over into my seat to do this. And, this portion of the plane was in a cold zone. I and the other passengers were cold (I heard others complAining about it too)."

Pros: "Easy upgrade to a seat with more room without a crazy up charge, super friendly and accommodating staff (both at gate and on flight), smooth ride from start to finish, and very quick turnover to board us after a late arrival plane. All in all, a comfortable experience!!"

Pros: "Amazing leg room for my 6'1 partner on the regular seat."
Cons: "My entertainment system was not working so I had to share my partners beside me."

Pros: "The price, kayak beat every other website. Glad my friend suggested I try using it."
Cons: "Sometimes a little bit confusing for which airline im suppose to go when there was a connecting flight."

Pros: "I liked the comfort and the service"
Cons: "the long delay in Montreal"

Pros: "Check in and boarding process ok."
Cons: "Had to buy meal on the SFO-Montreal leg, which was at the snack/wrap level. Constraint space seats."

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, 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."

Cons: "Was disappointed that there were no food/snack options on a 6-hour international flight. Also no pillows or blankets on a redeye"

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."

Pros: "The pilot was good"
Cons: "My tv did not work, the crew was not overly friendly and I was disappointed that for a 5 hr flight there was not even a snack. For the price of the ticket I expected better service"

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

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"

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: "The view"
Cons: "The fact that they changed the gate and didn't bother to let anyone know until after the flight was actually meant to leave. Also leaving nearly two hours late."

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."

Cons: "They kept us in the airplane 3 hours before"
