Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"

Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"
Cons: "They ran out of Port wine :("
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"
Pros: "Free rebooking"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "We were delayed a bit out of Shanghai but still arrived in Los Angeles on-time (very slightly early) which was nice. well done."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing, with staff members holding signs creating arbitrary waiting areas for each of the boarding zones. If this is the boarding process, maybe something more structured can be implemented, otherwise people just end up everywhere. The seat back entertainment on this 777-200 suffered from the most capricious touch-screens ever. I would frequently tap a control on the screen only to have a control at the far corner of the screen be "pressed" instead. Annoying."
Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Somehow we were double booked and double billed. We got to the airport 3 hours early and checked our bags. All 3 were lost and searched. Everything was put back precariously and there was shampoo and lotion everywhere."
Pros: "i love the view from the window seats and that I was able to relax and the snacks."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Taking-off and landing were very smooth. The crew are friendly and polite. They even served lunch for this two hours flight. I like the windows that changes color. You can have a good nip even during the day."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than two hours. Upset with it."
Pros: "787 Plane, leg space, polite and beautiful staff + service."
Cons: "Need to improve on food"
Cons: "More movies in different languages"
Cons: "Airline lounges"
Cons: "Airline Lounges"
Pros: "You get what you pay for with the cheap tickets. That’s all I can say about it. Comfort was OK when you sit in the premium economy. Nobody next to me and not crowded like the back of the plane."
Cons: "You’d think someone on board would speak English. The crew were just morons. They also lost my bags in the connection. Good luck dealing with baggage claim...."
Pros: "Better than US airlines in service and comfort"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be more friendly and more eye contact."
Pros: "to have transfer personalized service was an excellent service and great relief, because I didn't known the airport, had to pick luggages, then change terminal and check in again. the person walked along with me, all the way. she was kind, caring, and helpful."
Pros: "service minded because I am tall, so gave me a free exit seat without asking."
Cons: "the check-in took 1 hour. Impossible to do online check-in from home. the food is not good and entertainment without subtitles for let's of movies...."
Cons: "The flight was listed on the boards as leaving almost 2 hours late. We left to determine what was happening because we would miss our connection in Beijing if true. We had to go through security twice to do this. The flight was not changed to the correct time on the board until it was boarding for the scheduled time. Meanwhile we worried we would miss our next flight. HU7606 May 26, 2018. Very stressful."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great!"
Cons: "Entertainment system broken the whole flight. very boring"
Pros: "Good entertainment screen. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "10 hr layover and my luggage is still in Beijing.Food was was a dogs breakfast."
Pros: "Pretty good, five stars."
Pros: "Everything was poor"
Cons: "All things"
Cons: "pls work out a system checking in luggages to destination directly, instead of rechecking in at transferring hub like Beijing. Can be stressful under time pressure. If there’s any flight delay, the whole trip can be messed up."
Pros: "It looks like economy starts in the 30's - so my seat 35K wast actually just a few rows in, not in the rear of the plane as I would have expected (in the States). Luckily I looked up when I was only at row 37 and could sneak back to my seat real quick!"
Pros: "Their service is superb"
Pros: "Flight crew was very considerate in taking care of my father so that he had a safe, happy flight back to China."

Pros: "Flight left on time and very pleasant trip."

Pros: "More than enough room for a six footer."
Cons: "No entertainment. Food was much worse than my flight on Hainan last year."
Cons: "I was disappointed with the airports in China"
Cons: "US Immigration and customer at BOS was extremely slow. Even though I am a US citizen and had 3 hours until the next leg, time was still very tight for my transfer."
Pros: "flight was great and the staff was friendly. my special meal arrived as requested."
Cons: "Flight left and arrived by bus to the plain. I hate that..."
Pros: "airline provide sleeping accomodation"
Cons: "The waiting area was confusing. The boarding was not announced clearly (almost missed boarding). The shuttle sent us to the wrong plane, then took over half an hour driving around to find the right plane. The food was terrible."
Pros: "Some of the crew members were extremely kind."
Cons: "Weather delays. Normal though."
Pros: "Because your BOS departure was several hours late, you arranged free lodging in PEK for the overnight connection. This is superb and first rate service."
Cons: "Departure in BOS was several hours late."
Pros: "The seat is ok"
Cons: "The first flight was canceled with no reason. No one sent me a notice and we had to beg the crew to find us a different airline to fly with. There was dellay in both flights. Will think twice next time before buying a ticket with Hainan Airlines"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Cons: "I did not get aeroplan Credit"
Pros: "Staff and crew remained polite and professional in the face of some difficult, older Floridians (Sorry to all of the decent Floridians out there). One young flight attendant made a HUGE effort to turn around their mood. He wasn't very successful, but it was a valiant attempt."
Cons: "Boarding was a little stressful, but I think that had more to do with some belligerent, unprepared travelers than the staff and crew."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Pros: "Too little times, the stewards provided water"
Pros: "Everything except the crew and the food"
Cons: "I couldn't communicate with the crew cuz they couldn't speak English. I'm not saying that they have to be fluent speakers but still it was international flight Shanghai to Seattle! I mean come on now! If there was one crew member that can understand what I was saying that would have been nice!"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "This was a SZX-PEK-SJC flight. It is irrational to demand a passage to pick up bags in Beijing's Terminal 2 and carry to Terminal 2 and re-check for the flight to San Jose. Very poor system."
Pros: "Crew were very cooperative but did not know much English."
Cons: "We had a screaming child who continuously threw temper tantrums. THe crew were unable to get parents to manage the girls who were about 3 and 5 years of age. A baby you can understand but this girl was old enough to be talked to."
Cons: "The connection btween Shangjai and Beijing was terriblle. On my way to Shanghai from Beijing I missed my flight because of your airline. There was no one to help me to resolve the problem. I am an experince traveler and never had this attitude from an airline before."
Pros: "Big plane, nice Crew"
Cons: "This is a review regarding the flight from Montreal to Guangzhou, not the return flight. 1. HanNan air line use same plane for international and domestic flight, so in BeiJing airport, you end up walked all the way from international terminal to domestic terminal(which can not be avoided), and have to take shuttle from the gate travel back to the international terminal. It is not nice in winter or bad weather or travel with kids. 2. For traveler comes from other city with connection flight, HN air line is not able to provide the boarding pass of next connection flight after oversee flight. It is kind of hassle. On the returning flight, the on board entertainment system did not work even after restart. No any movie or TV, only music and games were available."
Pros: "Big plane, nice Crew"
Pros: "The seats are really comfortable."
Cons: "The transition is so poor. I bought a ticket from San Jose to Hangzhou. Transit Beijing. you can never transite from Beijing to hangzhou on time. They will ask you to delay your trip and take another airline. Which is 5 hrs waiting. Plus they won't even say sorry about their poor service."
Pros: "comfortable overall, will fly them again in future"
Pros: "The accommodations on the airplane were comfortable and fine."
Cons: "My luggage never made it to Tokyo. I have tried calling lost and found multiple times but nobody ever picks up. I have emailed them multiple times with no response. Everything I brought for my 2 month trip in Japan was in there. This has brought nothing but stress. I just want some sort of answer."
Pros: "Their business class is great. When we had to change planes in Beijing (we flew from Shanghai to Chicago by way of Beijing), they sent someone to guide us from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2. Since most of the signs at the airport were not that understandable, it relieved us of stress. And, of course, it's nice to be picked up by limousine and driven to the airport! And flat beds, excellent food, caring flight attendants."
Cons: "I have to take my own big luggage to catch next flight. Not convenient."
Pros: "All things"
Cons: "Stewardesses service and English language skill"
Pros: "Economical, free meals on all flights, friendly and efficient staff."
Cons: "Not the best connections or direct flights, crew sometimes tedious to work with. Good out weighs the bad."

Cons: "The lie flat seats were narrow and not very comfortable."
Pros: "Good trip"
Cons: "Train staff to be more responsive to customersn need"
Cons: "sea food"
Cons: "Food we got was not promised. Drinks are not served or highlighted based on requirements"
Pros: "The crew made a bad decision concerning me and another passenger. I had extra leg room in front of him and he still insisted on crushing my knees with his reclining part of his seat. The stewardess choice to side with him because it was ok to crush my knees because he paid for a upgrade in seat,"
Cons: "I will be filing a complaint about this matter soon and request a refund for the total disrespect of me as a paying customer,which they did not value at all"
Pros: "The flight was amazing"
Cons: "The problem of the kids shouting and shouting one hour"
Cons: "Cleanliness could be improved. Washrooms were not serviced frequently"
Cons: "Boarded by bus"
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time , provided water and sandwich on a 1 hr flight free"
Cons: "Nothing everything was excellent"
Pros: "For a 15 hour flight out was fine. The food is good."
Cons: "Bathroom lines were usually long. Appears a few were not working."
Pros: "I found the crews and their services good. Food served was tasty and healthy."
Cons: "The seat layout wasnt good. In a Boeing 777-300ER generaly the seat layout is 3-3-3 in a row, where as in etihad aircraft it was 3-4-3 in the economy. Th seat was very congested for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Clean aircrafts, average leg space and nothing less in services then what you get from other airlines as well."
Cons: "I found crew members bit rude to few customers. Crew members need bit more training in handling pressure on the flight. Also i noticed biased approach of crew members towards customer in comparison to the well dressed and not so well dressed customers."
Pros: "Timing was maintained"
Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "There was not enough non veg food onboard and no choices. Everyone was served vegetarian towards the end. They served lunch in the beginning of the flight and then I was literally starving after 5 or 6 hours until a fellow passenger told me they had some snacks at the back. There was no communication on that."
Pros: "Food abd care"
Pros: "Everything was fine, but"
Cons: "Frigid temps on board The snacks were sad"
Pros: "As I said, the crew and facility were pretty good. But the bad things really ruined the trip and pissed me off."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to purchase the on-plane WiFi. That didn't happen, as I was told there was an error in purchasing and I didn't end up getting any connection. Yet when I got off the plane, I realized that I was nevertheless charged for $12. This was definitely annoying, and they still haven't gotten back to me. Secondly, which is very frustrating and infuriating, was the fact that not only was my checked luggage delayed, they did not call me or reply to my emails with any useful information on my luggage's situation. To this date, I have no idea where it is, if it's lost or damaged, or when can they deliver it to me. I had all my clothes, my DSLR camera and gifts in my luggage, and I had to buy a bunch of stuff in the next few days because I didn't have those things. It has been more than a week, and they still haven't gotten back to me on anything. For this reason alone, I think they totally deserve a poor overall rating, especially because I chose them in the first place because I trusted their good ratings."
Cons: "Old plane, old movie lineup, tight seating, overcrowded"
Cons: "The seats never recline. All the 4 leg seats had reclining ossue"
Pros: "cheapest fiar"
Cons: "We have cancelled the trip on some personal problems online on kiwi.com, called twice also but till date no action is taken. Neither we got refund nor tickets got cancelled, eventhough we have cancelled tickets 3 days prior to start of our trip"
Pros: "Goodbye excellent"
Cons: "Thé cancelled m'y ticket. When I reach Séoul air port they have to call tout airseychelles.com and rebook ticket do I have to run With air hôtesse to the plane to catch it.lots of stress"
Cons: "It's a connecting flight for me and there is a long wait. so, my opinion is better to serve some snacks or food in the flight."
Cons: "I am very upset with Etihiad's service. On both ways, I had trouble with my luggage. On the way to Delhi all my bags were open and stuff was missing and now on the way back to U.S. all of my luggage was missing. I would not choose to fly Etihad again."
Pros: "Seat space"
Pros: "Every thing is perfect"
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than Qatar. Staff was very friendly. They handed out more water than other airlines, which is much needed on the long flights."
Cons: "They caused a lot of us to miss our connecting flights bc of hours-long delays. I had to stay overnight in Abu Dhabi. They put me up, which was nice, but I was sad to miss the first day of my work trip bc of it."
Pros: "The crew, the cleanliness, the food (lots of food and drink. It was nice to have the option to snack or not especially while traveling with a small child.)"
Cons: "My son's tv monitor didn't work"
Pros: "In flight service and amenities"
Cons: "Long layover"
Cons: "Service is poor, seats are crowded and uncomfortable, food is not good."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable proably because I was given bassinet seats because of infant traveling with me, though recliner didn't work"
Cons: "I had lot of issues wrt handling my baby. No baby food was provided even after asking twice.No tea or coffee served in timely manner. Need to follow up to ask for tea or coffee. I wouldn't suggest this flight to anyone."
Pros: "In flight crew was helpful and considerate about carrying a infant with me"
Cons: "Boarding at New Delhi was pathetic, crew asked me to go to online check in counter and it was slower than the other counters."
Pros: "The food and crew was good"
Cons: "Same Boeing 777 being used for several years now Seats were very uncomfortable . I advice ettihad should use A380 for these 14 hour flights for more comfortable experience of the passengers."
Pros: "Service in the Economy class was a nightmare. The air hostesses do not respond fast, take hours to get a glass of water and sometimes even don't bother to get you what you have asked for."
Pros: "Chair was comfy"
Cons: "crew were unorganized & rude Videos were very old & not updated for long time at least 3 yrs old"
Cons: "The crew was not helpful in keeping us informed about the delay, or in helping us make our connections."
Pros: "The flight was well managed. The cabin crew were really patient and helpful."
Cons: "The transit and security check at Abu Dhabi airport was horrible. The security check was conducted manually and there was an unnecessary bottleneck that was created."
Pros: "Ethihad is simply amazing. Best airways."
Cons: "I would have preferred A380 for the trip"
Pros: "Evrey thing"
Cons: "No thing"
Pros: "nice plane"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and communication from the flight deck."
Cons: "Particularly on the flight from Abu Dahbi to Washington, D.C., attendants were rude with not only me, but other customers. They were short in their responses, forgot requests multiple times, and didn't make the little bit of extra effort to provide translators in Arabic, ensure an elderly lady next to me had the meal she needed, and secure the food options that we asked for. Our row was told us there were no more chicken meals for example, when we saw an attendant on the other side of the plane offer consistent chicken meals for multiple rows to come. They were just being lazy and didn't even want to ask."
Pros: "Good food Good Service too"
Cons: "Think improving better service in rest room Long flight - magazines on demand to suit each national - no idea about its practicability"
Pros: "overall it is good."
Cons: "Wheelchair facility should be prompt. we had to wait for an hour to get it.. Also it is not that spacious.."
Cons: "No dedicated line for First @ TSA Pre-Clearance at Abu Dhabi. This means you have to leave the lounge hours earlier than otherwise incase there is a massive line @ TSA."
Pros: "Crew was incredible"
Cons: "Same thing with entertainment"
Cons: "Entertainment system kept kicking out of every movie or show every six minutes. It was really frustrating. A flight attendant did try to fix it, but it did not work. I had the exact same meal on the previous flight."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled at JFK..No food voucher or hotel voucher given.. No assistance in getting to near by airport for rescheduled flight. Flight has been cancelled 2 times already. Stuck in New york from last one day. Ethihad needs to do more for international passengers to help them find an accommodation at least. There was nobody to help or a distress center available at JFk airport."
Cons: "the wifi is awful"
Pros: "Flying portion was fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed for mechanical issues.... then upon landing trapped in cabin filled with exhaust then again trapped in a locked hallway."
Pros: "Pilot did great job, superb smooth landing."
Cons: "The two male flight attendants could have been a bit more friendly."
Pros: "comfortable plane."
Cons: "Kay&k was awful. Never use them again."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
Pros: "It was average."

Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "didn't get my flight you said booking was guaranteed refund 24 hours but when i call to change or refund you said the airline would not change or refund. you didn't live up to your end. if you refund i would consider tat but for now. i would never use kayak again and will post my experience"
Cons: "you could have change my return when i called 2 hours after or 18 hours after now i have to pay 500 to get home you should live up to your rules and refund my money"
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."
Pros: "Service for wheelchair was excellent with staff at checking counters"
Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The food was really bad. There wasn’t a lot of variety in entertainment."
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "New, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Salad 90% celery chunks, and beef that was 90% gristle. I paid extra for more leg room but got a bulkhead seat that had less leg room , and cramped, hard to access table and video screen."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "AA128 is nice. The plane is new and the seat is very comfortable. The service is fine."

Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Cons: "I had a woman way too large for her seat crowd 6 inches into my seat which I paid extra for and she did not. She also had a baby which ended up with its head in my lap and she spills formula on me. My body was so contorted I couldn’t sleep the whole flight and it was a 14 hour flight. Dandy attendant tells the guy in the aisle seat That he was such a good passenger that if she had a metal she would give it to him. I’m sitting there like WTF I have only Peed once in 13 hours because the baby was in the bassinet sleeping and I didn’t want to disturb it. And the WiFi didn’t work"
Cons: "Snacks were okay, nothing to shout about. Streaming movies is still of a mystery to me, not an intuitive experience in any sense of the word. the sites AA provides to answer one's questions don't give any real guidance on 'how', just state what, kept pointing me to the app which doesn't have any menu item to view movies. took me well over ten minutes to find any helpful information."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Pros: "The flight was what one would expect from a domestic airline. They did provide free movies/tv which was nice. It was one time to leave and on time to arrive."
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "The cleaniless of the flight can get better"
Pros: "Flying AA. Excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "Great Wifi! After reading bad reviews it was actually ok. Flew business on the A319 (single aisle plane) and it reminded me of qantas 737. I think for a short haul day flight I may just put up with economy instead for the price. Food is ok. I think with AA you have to pick your aircraft, it makes a difference what plane you fly as to what you get in business class. FA's were great. Overall I'd fly them again. Food was ok."
Cons: "They asked everyone to put the window shades down but I fly window seat because I like looking out! It was a day flight too! LAX T4 lounge is being refurbished so you need to go to T5 and make sure it's not the regional lounge!"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Pros: "Excellent service by the airline stewardess"
Cons: "Wait time to board"
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Cons: "Old plane and the movie app kept cutting out"
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "My business class seat was comfortable"
Cons: "4hr boarding delay and no entertainment system whatsoever on a 6hr flight."
Pros: "Entertainment System, Crew"
Cons: "Washroom faucet didn't work so no one could wash their hands."
Pros: "Getting off the plane!!!"
Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"
Pros: "Excellent and diverse film selection. I broadened my horizons watching documentaries on hacking, gun running, and on an Afghan refugee teen in Iran, a film about a black American teen in Germany, and a French drama."
Cons: "Most of the time economy class is uncomfortable because of the lack of foot room. So this time, for the long flight from China, I chose an exit row precisely for the extra leg space. However, there is no footrest at all , which as you're surely aware, is terribly uncomfortable when sitting for long periods, let along trying to sleep. Furthermore, the exit row seats are not provided a substitute for missing the usual back-of-the-seat pocket with magazines ; that means no spot to place books/papers/trash for the entire flight. Finally, I am 5'2 and petite, and was seated between two fairly slim men, and yet we were still all squeezed side to side. I had no elbow rest. I actually rested my head on one man's shoulder, once he was asleep, and hope he didn't notice. While this is unfortunately typical of economy class, it is not decent."
Pros: "I liked that is an all business carrier, the steward was personable and totally on charged. For a short flight it was excellent !!"
Pros: "The landing of the plane was good and one flight attendant was courteous. The movie options were pretty good. At least the wine was free."
Cons: "The check-in counter in DCA was AWFUL with only two people running and no kiosks working. They were rude and didn't listen to us either. When we got to the food part, it was disguisting. First of all, I am vegetarian but even if I ate meat, I wouldnt have eaten it. So I just ate bread for the 13 hour flight. Besides one flight attendant, the rest were rude, harsh and had a generally bad attitude. AIr Canada has BY FAR been the worst travel experience for me thus far. I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Just about everything. And to top it all off, I found that the air inside the cabin was very good and so I arrived after 14 hours on board without red eyes and a headache"
Cons: "Although the air planes are newer, the seats are uncomfortably smaller which makes long distance flights very unpleasant."
Pros: "No protection from noise. Gave up watching movies."
Cons: "Better earphone"
Cons: "Having to pay for changing return date. You should have an open ticket option for extended stays"
Cons: "Ran out of salmon for meal"
Pros: "Haneda is a beautiful airport and the airline staff there were great, as service generally is in Japan."
Cons: "need to devise a better boarding process--small number of zone 1 and 2 passengers, then massses in 3, 4, and 5. More zones or more thought into how to improve customer experience for all."
Cons: "I find it very strange that you have to pay extra to ship a bag. Air Canada advertises that all fees are included in their fares. However you are getting hit at the back end after you make your booking. Just about everyone travels with a bag to ship. After having to Leave fort Mcmurray due to loosing our home we had to pay an extra fee to ship three bags. It does not do much for the image of Air Canada be a leader in the industry and be up front all the way."
Pros: "Weather was nice so it was not due to weather. We had to stay in Toronto overnight."
Pros: "The 787 is avery comfortable airlplane."
Pros: "I like the service s over all"
Pros: "There is nothing I liked about air Canada"

Cons: "No free alcohol. Lights didn't turn off ever so I could get some sleep."
Cons: "The announcement about turbulence were to much. Could have been way more subtle or shorter"
Cons: "The process to get thru customs was horrible. If there would have been more people working the wait would not have been so bad."
Pros: "On board service Comfortable seating and space On time dep. & arrival"
Cons: "Staff don't understand the rules clearly"
Cons: "My seat back was not reclining for the entire 9 hour trip"
Pros: "I liked the fact that my friend and I were able to get seats together. It was very nice that of the airline to accommodate that."
Cons: "I didn't like the cold tea. I would have liked a cookie or something to go with my tea, without having to pay for it."
Cons: "Trying to take off twice and warning lights came on. We had to sit in the plane for an extra 1.5hrs and an additional hour in the terminal. Third time was a charm"
Cons: "Very long line to get to security"
Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"
Pros: "On both legs of our flight to and from O'Hare to China, we had delays. The first was due to an ice storm in Toronto, where we changed planes, then the second due to compromised air space over the China Sea that Air Canada wisely chose to delay our flight rather than take a risk. The delays were handled professionally and pleasantly. It wasn't their fault. The agents and flight attendants were very attentive in trying to help us get our connecting flights, such as switching us to the front of the plane before landing so we could get off quickly. Alas, it didn't work, but they tried. Our checked bags came off quickly. I felt that we had more legroom on our AC flights than I have had recently on American aircrafts. Temperature was comfortable. We were regularly given water, drinks, and we had complementary meals with beer or wine. Food was pretty average, but the beverages were good. I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Food was just okay."
Pros: "Two bags plus a carry-on."
Pros: "Staff was courteous"
Pros: "My legs barely fit, but it was possible to sit without my knees hitting the seat"

Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "Air Canada service was wonderful for the Mtl-Toronto keg of the journey. Comfortable, efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "the electronic self booking is a bit unclear and stressfull. More staff on hand to assist and help with questions would be good."
Pros: "Overall fair experience."
Cons: "Boarding in Shanghai was very unorganized. Business class passengers were mixed in with economy class when boarding!"
Cons: "Could not reserve seats at purchase."
Cons: "movies should be changed more often. a few small free snacks would be nice."
Cons: "Seats were fairly uncomfortable. Unable to even doze off for a few minutes"
Pros: "Will never use this site for booking again"
Cons: "BEWAREDO NOT USE THIS SITE"
Cons: "It was good"
Cons: "There were not that many movies to choose from. I expected several hundred. Only a few dozen."
Pros: "The newly renovated room"
Cons: "The rude staff, rude drivers, terrible smell in the entire hotel, and poor customer service."
Cons: "Sat next to props where it was noisy. Possible to issue ear plugs to those in these seats"
Pros: "We booked the wrong date, no help given...."
Cons: "We booked the wrong date, the 200$ u.s. Change fee per person and the change fees were more than the tickets,....Why can't we get good customer service , something like let me help you..?. Could of kept us customers for life, now I will tell everyone I know to never use this company. To rebook the next day was another 550 Canadian"
