Pros: "Kayak is the best"
Pros: "They don’t help you. They send you back to the kiosk over and over again. No humans are allowed to help."
Pros: "Alaska is my absolute favorite airline. On time, courteous, a fair mileage plan, nice planes. Unfortunately I have to take them out of SeaTac."
Cons: "SeaTac is the worst airport in the entire country in my experience. Two examples why: 1. When I arrived this morning at 5am there was already a nearly hour long security line. 2. Upon our early arrival from California, SeaTac doesn’t have a gate for us, so we burn time and fuel on the tarmac. Like usual. One trip to any other airport and you have an appreciation for how DREADFUL SeaTac is on the whole. Some great people, but a poorly run poorly managed monstrosity of a disfinctional airport."
Pros: "Snacks and leg room"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the plane was clean, and the staff were friendly."
Pros: "simple and afordable"

On my side there three guys together, the other guys were business men concentrating on their work. I was just trying not to bump into their arms, I couldn't relax."

Pros: "The crew were great, and the plane was nice and new."
Cons: "The food options were slim, the snacks were just pretzels, and it was a brand new plane with no inseat entertainment. It has wifi, but all the good entertainment was for purchase, no decent free options. Lame."
Pros: "Friendly staff! Prompt service."
Cons: "No free drinks"
Cons: "I like Alaska airlines, just not the flight last night. Something was wrong with the engine and we were sitting there forever. They should have checked the engine before boarding everyone. We were sitting there with no A/C and then they had to turn the power off. They tried and tried to fix the problem but it didn't work. Then everyone had to get off the plane and there were not enough seats the next flight and no other flights that night at that airport. We had to change the airport for am flights or fly out the next day. They offered to change the tickets but nothing else. Some passengers had to pay for taxicab and hotel for the night by themselves."
Pros: "Organized boarding and arrived early."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "got there"
Cons: "the brat in front of me screaming"
Pros: "Great on time schedule"
Cons: "I don't agree with not letting someone book there seat at time of purchase. A numbers of flights I paid 3-4'weeks early but had to wait and check and recheck mulitple times for when seat selection became available. Very nerve racking. Otherwise very good flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight, fee pretzels, all wins for me."
Cons: "Seats were incredibly crammed, I felt claustrophobic between the window and my neighbor."
Pros: "I liked how relatively quick the boarding process was. The flight was short and sweet."
Cons: "Not at the fault of the airline but I was seated in front of a family with two small children. They were loud and kicked my seat on several occasions. Very unpleasant. But no major complaints about the crew."
Pros: "We were able to leave a little early, the flight was fast, and we arrived about 30 mins ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Nothing too much money for a two hour flight with no amenities. Get rid of the awful snack pack."
Cons: "We checked our bags at the request of airport staff to help with overhead storage and by the time we boarded there was no overhead space and we had to place backpacks under seat leaving no leg space because of silver box under the middle seat."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment had technical issues."
Pros: "It was a fairly short flight. Seats were comfortable and the entertainment system worked"
Cons: "Flying out of long beach or santa Ana because lax is a zoo"
Pros: "Wasn't able to get my seats ahead of time, but was lucky to be put in an aisle seat."
Cons: "It would be very helpful if the person at the counter would remind International travelers to make sure that they get their VAT receipts stamped at the border/passport agent."
Pros: "It was a small twin prop so there was only one cabin crew, but she was really pleasant."
Cons: "Instead of just staying on the plane we were required to deplane and take all of our luggage and haul it all through a long winding ramp and hallway into the airport. As soon as we got there, they said it was boarding immediately and we had to turn around and haul it all right back."
Pros: "Overall it was a pleasant flight, satisfied"
Pros: "Boarding easy & fast"
Cons: "Plane lat, extremely hot, & only 1 explanation with no updates"
Cons: "Missed this connection due to flight delay (see above)"
Pros: "Held plane"
Pros: "The empty seat beside me"
Cons: "Poor connections for movies and wifi- broken"
Pros: "The flight from Toronto to Boston is extremely short, about an hour. I don’t feel as though I can rate the food since I didn’t buy any, it just doesn’t give me an option to not rate it. It was a completely full flight. It was as comfortable as can be. It’s a smaller plane so you feel everything but the captains were good flyers."
Cons: "I’m not sure if this is something I can really complain about but I wish the flight attendants would’ve spoken a bit lower. For a plane where half of the people there had missed their connecting flight and were put on a 6:30 am flight, I don’t think we wanted to hear about their detailed personal lives."
Cons: "5 hours delayed because captin was late."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me more accurate info about the luggage proces. Information at check-in was incorrect."
Cons: "1) incorrect luggage info in LIR 2) very late flight"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean plane."
Pros: "good to have 3 meals for this long haul flight"
Cons: "Flight delay more than 1 hour ! Took very very long to board Poor choice of movie. Too few, Too old"
Cons: "Everything- packed tight like sardines"
Cons: "1. Too cold 2. Patron behind me was tall and his knees repeatedly pushed into my back through a paper thin seat back 3. Waited 45 minutes on tarmac AFTER landing to deplane"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Pros: "Easy , on time, friendly"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Short, comfortable seats"
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Cons: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, considering there were just over two hundred passengers to manage. The crew was excellent: responsive, courteous and proactive. Entertainment: Overall plenty of options though some were dated. Food: surprisingly good, and COMPLIMENTARY. Didn't have to pay extra."
Cons: "Coach is CRAMPED. And on a 14-hour flight, that's important.."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times without any explanation or update from Air Canada at all. Everyone was at the gate ready to board at 6:50. The screen didn't indicate that it was going to be delayed. There was no one from the crew or AC at all at the gate until 8:30. No announcement, whatsoever. Then when we finally arrived at SFO, the plane was circling above SFO in a storm for another one hour and fifteen minutes..."
Cons: "Lost suitcase"
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: "Narita airport ground crew were very enthusiastic Air line crew were nice as well"
Cons: "Why Air canada sent me email that check in online but No information of eTA at all I didn't expect anything about eTA because They changed the system 5days before my booking without telling passengers so I applied eTA at check in counter of airgort They didn't accept my credit cards even after payment completely I still need to wait confirmation email that they take whithin 72hours I made my flight but I got 15minutes before flight time I ran air canada gate from departure gate with staff Air Canada was NOT kindness customers service except airport ground staff They helped me out to get my flight I am appreciate them"
Cons: "Luggage delivery was slow it took almost 20 min very inefficient compared to other airport we r travelled to other major cities"
Pros: "the free movies. Plenty of offers of water to drink."
Cons: "The seats were so tight you literally felt like a sardine. These seats were by far the smallest I have had for an international flight. The breakfast wrap was not good."
Pros: "The plane was clean & the crew was courteous"
Cons: "There was no decaf coffee or tea, very limited food to buy on board, & no free cookies, crackers or nibbles. Definitely a no frills flight!!"
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Cons: "all flights to and from were delayed"
Pros: "I liked the flight crew. They were very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Checking in my luggage was so slow. The inside of the airplane was dirty. I can still see some garbages on the sides of my chair. Food was not good at all and have very small portion . You have to pay $10 to rent an iPad which I think should be provided freely expecially if you're in a long flight. Overall, it was an uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My luggage is lost and I still don't have it!"
Pros: "Really enoyed the personal entertainment system. 12 hours is a long flight and the entertainment really helped pass the time away. It was fun seeing the flight status on the monitor and watching movies. We were fed very well. I believe we had 3 meals and a snack. Attendants came by to see if we needed more to drink too."
Cons: "It was a huge plane with about 500 people on board. Not a lot of space for getting up an walking much. Not a lot of space between seat rows. I guess that's just the way things are. Had a huge issue with checked baggage [see below] but don't know which airline was at fault although the AIr Canada employee who checked our baggage in Washington, DC said we wouldn't see our bags again until we arrived at Hirochima, our final destination."
Cons: "-very little leg room on rouge plane -do not own a device to watch movies etc -this is very exclusive and assumes that everyone has access to devices"
Pros: "When my food was late they refunded it"
Cons: "The boarding times were quite far behind The lack of TVs was unfortunate, and renting an ipad instead for more money is cheap."
Cons: "The system from the beginning was so unorganised ...went 2 hrs earlier even after online check in and it said u need to be there just an hour ..still had to run till the end.. Seat was so uncomfortable ..to add to the agony my luggage didn't arrive and had to wait till evening"
Pros: "Good selection of free movies and shows on board. Some great and helpful flight attendants."
Cons: "The staff at check in were not overly helpful. We were running late and possibly going to miss our flight and they did not seem willing to help us out at all."
Cons: "extreme delays and not a lot of updates"
Cons: "Cannot watch movies in over 10 hours flight, rude service."
Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "There were no screens to watch anything on for a flight across the Atlantic. And we were told once we boarded that we needed to download the aircanada app in order to get content. Well by that time I didn't have free wifi and couldn't download the app. Very frustrating. I would suggest announcing this before people board the flight."
Cons: "Not enough room. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
Cons: "My seat back was not reclining for the entire 9 hour trip"
Pros: "The crew had a problem passenger in first class (I was sitting a few rows back on the other side of the curtain. I noticed that the flight attendant was quickly dealing with something in front but kept her calm and didn't disrupt the overall experience of the passengers. When we landed the police boarded and arrested the man. The people around me didn't even notice anything was going on. I congratulate the Air Canada crew for keeping their cool and they obviously get good training to help them out in these situations."
Pros: "Great seating and very spacious for economy seats."
