Pros: "Footrests under the seat in front of you"

Pros: "Crew very helpful especially considering I had a child with me. Boarding process was very easy. Departure process was very easy."
Cons: "Food and seating could have been better considering the price for first class."
Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."
Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"
Pros: "Easy on, easy off! Departed and arrived on time. Crew were cheery and bright! Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!"
Cons: "Some of these survey questions need to be NA- my flight was too short for food service or entertainment."
Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."

Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow"

Pros: "How fast it was to board"
Cons: "Was the turbulence that made us having to wait to land which got me sick"
Cons: "Ticket confirmation numbers are not provided with third party companies. I tried e-ticket #, confirmation #, reservation #s and none of it worked. The flight rep at the counter printed a ticket and told me the number listed on it my confirmation # and I should use it on my way back. That # was expired when I was having problems checking in online."
Cons: "The man next to me left his phone on so he could text."
Pros: "Very happy with both the service and crew!"
Pros: "Alaska staff are always friendly and courteous, and the plane we flew on was very recent so the seats were new, clean, and comfortable. No issues with delays or timing."
Cons: "I called and wanted exchange my flight purchase for a credit for another flight as I had gone into the hospital the day before and received a doctors note regarding an infection of the ear and I was instructed by my physician to be weary of flying immediately and I have the note from my physician to provide if necessary. After speaking with multiple people they said they do not have a medical clause and I could not get my money back or even a credit to reschedule a flight."
Cons: "Did not like the rates for wifi. First r such a short flight it should be FREE."
Cons: "A representative in Portland refused to reassign my ticket knowing I was going to miss my connecting flight at the next airport (SeaTac). I was told by another representative that there were still available seats on the flight that would have allowed me to make my connecting flight to Bellingham at seatac."

Cons: "The seats were old and worn . Metal bars with a piece of material over them , all the padding gone . It was so uncomfortable"
Pros: "helpful cheerful staff cordial and pleasant ."
Cons: "The luggage belt kept changing"
Pros: "It's a non-stop flight to Cabo San Lucas (SJD or MMSD to be more accurate) from KSJC. Little in terms of weather disturbances but be prepared to be created by the heat if you're landing during the summer!"
Cons: "No jetway so you're walking from a plane across the tarmac."
Pros: "Leg room, boarding"
Cons: "Crew kept talking and advertising their credit card services and all of its benefits. I just wanted to sleep but they kept yapping away nonstop through the overhead system. First and last time flying with this airline."
Pros: "flight was good and on time"
Cons: "in flight entertainment ok but cant use it with out apps that you cant"
Pros: "I leg room with the new seats. Boarded front and rear simultaneously that cut overall boarding time considerably. Front boarded through the usual door and rear boarded out to the tarmac and up the stairs to the rear door!"
Pros: "They began boarding early, left on time, arrived early, baggage available quickly. Great crew. Helpful and friendly. Smooth takeoff and landing. Pilot shared relevant details with passengers, nice to know what to expect. They served Starbucks coffee; better than the usual on other airlines."
Cons: "A wheel broke off of my suitcase but they got on it right away to compensate (repair or replace); I'm sure this will be handled - no pun intended - properly! :)"
Pros: "The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Boarding was a breeze and hassle free. They brought around beverages 3 times during the flight. Right before landing they handed out complimentary cocktails. This was my first time flying with Alaska Airlines, I would fly them again."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "I really hated the crew member trying to sell the Alaska visa card. I do not expect to be bombarded with advertising when I have no option to avoid it. If my only choice to avoid it is to fly another airline, I will."
Pros: "Service on board was excecellent"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed by 30 minutes. Even though the arrival times were ontime, the delays both announced more than 10 minutes after it was clear there was no plane at the gate to board. This meant that I left early only to wait even longer at the airport than I would have liked."
Pros: "Very attentive and nice staff I love this airline .. keep it up you guys, thank you"
Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."
Cons: "Again, the size of the plane, interior."
Pros: "We didn't miss our connection"

Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Pros: "The crew and the overall flying experience was fine"
Cons: "But my travel luck proceeded to haunt me and my only bag I had travel with me was lost and they have no idea where it is.... hope to get it soon since I have work tonight and tomorrow morning"

The staff was very friendly and professional.

Pros: "Extra room and fast boarding"

Cons: "Not sitting in an airplane without AC for 30 minutes after everyone loaded"

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"

Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"

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

Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."

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: "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."

Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
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."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"

Missed flight due the delays

Cons: "Tiny seats with limited legroom. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Because of Boeing disaster did not go to Halifax but were sent by Westjet to TO and then on with Air France. Boarding areas in TO are a long way away (lot of walking) and customs in TO is frustrating and takes a long time."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."
Pros: "The food was good and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "We could have used more legroom between the seats."
Pros: "Great crew, very accommodating for a small and short flight"
Cons: "Food, food, food"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and were having a good time during the flight, which was nice to see."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets supplied, luckily I had my own otherwise I would have been miserable. Worst surprise was that there was no food provided. On a long haul flight that was surprising, they should clearly say that on booking. There were snacks available for purchase, but not great."
Cons: "Total rip off. I won't be flying West Jet again if it can be avoided"
Pros: "Yes, the crew was very good."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have coffee on the flight. All they had to offer was a snack and a glass of water."

Cons: "Horrible check in Rude Not sure if I’ll fly WestJet Luggage was wet when it arrived Luggage took forever to come to terminal"
Cons: "More water and a tv like air Canada"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "The airport staff was horrendous."
Pros: "noone booked in the seat beside me allowed for more room."

Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Quick, easy, comfortable. No complaints"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin."
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work on laptop - only on phone or tablet. Westjet seating is tight."
Pros: "The crew was great overal. Great sport and attitude with humor."
Cons: "The flight in Ottawa was delayed twice which made me change my plans twice. The plane was also a little cold heading to Toronto. Otherwise the help from Paul getting checked in was fantastic. He made the bad situation of a delay worth it just talking with him and apologizing for the delay with true empathy . Thank you Paul"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "That westjet q400 is an awful aircraft with terrible slimline seats"
Pros: "counter staff were friendly, courteous. helpful. Flight staff were friendly."
Cons: "prop- jet was loud & bumpy while on the ground at takeoff"
Pros: "Flight crew remained jovial and pleasant despite the many issues."
Cons: "Mis messaging and changing/non factual information as the flight status changed. I had personal issues ongoing which resulted in a flight change, and having to go back to security multiple times, which would have all been easier if I had been told that I didn't have to run like a mad woman through the airport as the flight was already determined to be significantly delayed. West Jet tried......they just don't see to be able to know anything."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and efficient"
Cons: "The plane is cramped and a noisey propeller model."
Pros: "The friendliness, the options through the app with movies etc"
Cons: "Need more leg room on board"
Pros: "This leg of the travelling was fine. I know I got fleeced on the price of the round trip to go home for a funeral but didn't realize just how bad until my seatmate told me he paid a third of what I did. Note to self: Don't ask the traveller next to you how much they paid for their ticket..."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment unless you download their app, however there was no signs or announcements to warn passengers of this. Flight was delayed and they lost my baggage even though it was a direct flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I went through customs and then walked via escalators and moving walk ways to b4. It took me almost a hour. I was the last to board I am sure And had to collect my own luggage and take it from one point to another. I am 70. thank god, when I got on the plane I sat in 3a and was offered a free glass of wine. halleluya. I was exhausted Toronto airport is always a nightmare. I travel a lot and will avoid this airport if I can. I do like West jet but Delta /west jet connection means I have to take my bag from one place to another and I walked miles and could have missed my flight. I am tired. I am going to bed"
Pros: "Korean air is very efficient."
Cons: "We had to rent a car to get to Ottawa because West Jet had cancelled all their flights due to weather. All Air Canada flights were operating. We waited in line for 2 hours at the airport for West Jet to tell us that we needed to call them regarding a refund. We called them and were on hold for an hour and 45 minutes. Then we were told we had to call the travel agent...we on hold for 2 hours. We then called Korean air and they told us they couldn’t contact West Jet-no one knew what the value of the flight from Toronto to Ottawa was. We were only provided with a refund of $4 (for the taxes) when it cost us $280 to rent a car to get to Ottawa. I will never book a flight with West Jet again."
Cons: "Boarding outside with no notice or warning"
Cons: "Our hour-long flight home from Toronto to Ottawa was delayed by two days. WestJet provided a hotel voucher and food vouchers for one day but refused to refund us for a car rental that would get us home in time. While we made our own way home, we were emailed to say that our flight home was delayed twice more."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and how accommodating they were of me and of their guests!"
Cons: "There was quite a delay on my flight and I didn’t get an email to let me know there was a delay. Because I happened to go to check in earlier, I happened to noticed the delay. I wasn’t happy about not getting an email. I called West Jet to find out about the delay and it took approximately an hour to speak to someone. When I did, the delay was explained as weather related and the reason for not getting an email was because they hadn’t gotten to it yet I believe. I wasn’t happy with that as a reply. The flight was then delayed again by several minutes. I would have appreciated some form of compensation as I was going to get a lift home from the airport and ended up having to pay for a taxi as I was coming in so late. In all other flights, I know west jet to be quite an accommodating airline. The crew was great, I simply didn’t appreciate how the delay was handled."
Pros: "Got a window seat Good deal on price from kayak"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hrs Lost my luggage and no word on when it will be returned Never told us about why delayed"
Cons: "Didn't fly on the day I was supposed to fly due to delays. I had to figure out for myself that I wasn't going to make my connection and thus I went back home. We agreed to itinerary for the next day that had a 2+ hour wait at la Guardia and yet I still almost missed the N.Y. to Tampa flight due to delays out of toronto. Had to sprint from one terminal to the other. In Toronto we sat on the tarmac for 90 mins, and this was after dealing with security and other issues with checkin before i even got on the plane. For example, it was difficult to explain that i had already paid for my checked bag the day before. As a result I never got a chance to eat the entire day. And then my bag didn't get to Tampa until later that night anyways. Although the individual staff members were all very nice, there were institutional flaws that made two days very frustrating. I have some sort of debilitating delay on more than half my flights over the last few years, and rarely is there ever an explanation or compensation."
Cons: "It was delayed."
Pros: "Kayak was great to book through. Very simple. Plane ride there was great."
Cons: "Plane ride home wasn't good due to the airplane propellers being louder then usual and noisy, a little unsettling."
Pros: "Friendly people+ great service"
Pros: "It was on time. Quick to board."
Cons: "I’m used to entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment selection is lacking."
Pros: "Quick, efficient and funny friendly staff"
Cons: "Delays Boarding: boarding from both doors: back door and front door, but no direction from the crew to anyone. Ended up with passengers trying to get in the front from the back and passengers trying to get to the back from the front. This created another extra 15 minutes delay when everyone were stuck in the middle...The rest of the passengers waited outside in Canadian winter cold. On a flight already late."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I like that I got the plus seat for no extra charge."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Multiple delays totalling up to 2.5 hours but only updated 15 minutes as it reached the time of take off. Minimal heads up prior"
Pros: "The airline attendants were very friendly"
Pros: "Flight staff"
Cons: "Had to disembark. So left and arrived much later than planned."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. However it was not really within their control."
Pros: "Always on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Better snacks like porter"
Cons: "No entertain system"
Cons: "Same comment as the previous flight ref movies. I wont take Westjet again on a long flight without movie screens. Not all old people have Iphones or laptop computers. Mike C."
Pros: "The gate and air crew were very friendly. Flight right on time."
Cons: "Not much legroom."

Long wait for shuttle to get to terminal

The service on board was wonderful.

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"
Cons: "Running out of bin space by Group 3 is just wrong."
Pros: "It didn’t happen"
Cons: "It didn’t happen"
Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "Comfortable flight and was able to get a couple hours of sleep in."
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour. Wasted so much time."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."
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: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
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."
Cons: "5 delays with the flight. Had to Switch to a flight leaving from SFO and pay $60 for an Uber to get to SFO"
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
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: "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: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."
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: "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."

Flight was efficient, left and arrived early. Good selection of entertainment, reasonable amount of seating space even though the flight was full. Only blemish was at check in, where the agent demanded to see our proof of vaccination in physical form (my wife didn't have hers). This was shocking because we had uploaded the documents for the round trip through the AC website, and received confirmation from AC. Eventually she settled for an ArriveCan receipt. Thankfully I had completed that process. Why do we need to submit proof of vaccination forms to AC if the agents are not able to use that information?

Crowded and uncomfortable. Chaos with overhead bin space. Staff are pleasant.

Would have been nice to have at least a snack or something on board.

All good but wish they had offered ear phones.

This was an excellent flight with very few people on board. Only issue was the 30 minute departure delay and this was communicated well so we weren't left hanging. Traveler communications in Cancun airport aren't the best, but that isn't AC's fault.

Worst airlines ever used

Cons: "Took 45 minutes to get through Calgary security, long line ups"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Slight departure delay - no big deal"
Cons: "Seats next to bathroom row 30 - not good. Delayed 2 hours before departure"
Pros: "Crew, seats and entertainment. Unfortunately a rude passenger in front that put their seat back too far and refused to compromise so didn’t have much leg room over a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ran out of half the food options halfway down the plane."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and touch screen on TV was working but it took some work -- I had to press and hold and the little arrow would fly all over the screen"
Cons: "After a delay on my first flight, I managed to get to the gate with a few minutes to spare and the door open. The desk agent refused to let me board the plane."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and capable."
Cons: "My first and last flight on the CRJ 9. It's much less comfortable than a prop plane, for a 90 minute+ flight."
Cons: "Mix up with seating had boarding card reprinted twice and no one could explain why it happened. Staff otherwise were good."
Cons: "Very cramped like sardine tin. Not enough flight info boards in airport and they were hard to read m"
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."
Cons: "The way I was treated upon my landing in Toronto. When I missed my flight I had to stay at the airport from 10:30pm until 9:30am and there was nothing offered. No place to sleep or any compensation for food. I spoke with others that had food vouchers and others got toiletries. I'm not impressed."
Cons: "Everything was great except no wifi and average movie selection."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Being delayed for mechanical issues seems to happen more often now, which gives pause. Obviously we want a safe aircraft and I'm glad they deal with the issues, but why are these issues popping up more frequently now? Also, the seats are very uncomfortable for a tall person - no lumbar support"
Cons: "Delayed without notice and broken sound system for tv screen."
Cons: "I could not get a seat assignment or a boarding pass for my connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "The return flight to Orlando was just shy of 2 hours delayed. It was delayed 30 minutes prior to boarding. Then we sat on the plane, at the gate for over an hour. The plane was absolutely filthy. There was food on the seats, on the floor, smears on the window. It was disgusting and I could not wait to get if that plane. I will not be choosing air Canada in the future."
Pros: "Ease of booking"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "What a mess. Every DELTA flight I have been on in recent months has had terrible delay issues - I'm cancelling my credit card."
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: "The crew members were also friendly"
Cons: "The boardung gate was changed but no announcement was made"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and courteous. I liked the tv selection especially the Canadian content."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of electric problems. The complimentary snacks aren't as good as other airlines."
Pros: "It was such a nice normal flight compared to the other flights on this trip."
Cons: "Still too much carry on to deal with before take off."
Pros: "Paid for the "upgraded" seat only to be told we had to be in the back of the plane. Moving back all rows had one person and one chair open, so we had to sit apart. Useless crew as an elder couple asked to sit together and were told to check with passengers. Oh and the flight was delayed 3 times."
Pros: "The landing..."
Cons: "Left late and overall once again did not find the staff to be exceptionally helpful."
Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "French annoying"
Pros: "The flight was on time!!!"
Cons: "I find over the past 25 years that I have been flying with Air Canada the customer service has really went to the dumps !!! Every body is rude and don't understand why."
Pros: "Liked being distracted by a free movie."
Pros: "Quick easy, I hate that I have to go through sercurity again... but oh well."
Cons: "Refer to last one."
Cons: "Flight was 45 min late leaving & I only had 1 hr between the next flights. Because Winnipeg is a small airport, I just made the next connection but no time to go to the restroom."
Pros: "The boarding staff and flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats were so small it was impossible to get the seatbelt without disturbing the people on either side. I am not a large person and I still filled the entire seat. The food was not good either. They served what was supposed to be a warm chicken wrap but after two bites I set it aside as mystery food."
Pros: "We checked in online and were able to very quickly and efficiently check our bags and board."
Cons: "We did not have in flight entertainment. We had to pay $10 to rent an iPad."
Pros: "excellent take off and landing, very smooth"
Cons: "Could serve a nicer snack.....came around once with free liquids....seemed more interested in pushing food to purchase....don't like paying for a seat when you already paid for a ticket"
Cons: "1h15 late"
Cons: "We nearly missed a chance to disembark between storms because an idiot decided to grab his bags before we could move. None of the flight crew came to yell at the dummy who was holding us up."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Pros: "Price good; seat comfort OK."
Cons: "Late to board, late to take off, late to land: no explanations other than "We're third in line.""
Pros: "Seats were comfortable..."
Cons: "Plane windows were really dirt... staff was a bit rude..."
Cons: "Connecting from London through Toronto to Winnipeg couldn't be accomplished in a 2.25 hr layover. Long line for immigration and and enormous line to go through security again meant I missed my flight and the next one was full. It gave me 5 hours to think of all the reasons why I won't connect through Toronto again."
Cons: "Their entertainment system relied on customer iPads! Software proved nearly impossible to install. Food service very slow."
Cons: "Flight left almost one hour late"
Pros: "Wonderful selection of in-flight entertainment! Great food, great service."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "air canada overbooks their flights....consequently, i wasn't able to be on the flight that i had booked with kayak. they have flex seating which gives business people who fly alot preference to change their flights at a moment's notice. bad policy for the rest of us."
Cons: "gate was changed without an announcement flight was twice delayed"
Pros: "Organized boarding and in flight service"
Cons: "Late departure"
