Pros: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly"
Cons: "Everything is so smooth in my flight!"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rude and inconsiderate - if you see that someone is sleeping, you don’t stand at their seat and lean on it and shake it while you’re waiting to give the security demo before take off."
Cons: "Boarding was late and line was very lonf"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Seats were decently comfortable - appreciated blanket and pillow for long haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Cons: "There was a major delay - we never were told why and no one apologized. It was so stressful to make my connection."
Pros: "Lost the luggage"
Pros: "The seats aren’t the greatest"
Cons: "Just the seats"
Pros: "Exelent Crew, great food and service I really like Swiss airlines. The best so far!!! Thanks"
Pros: "Great friendly crew. Efficient systems."
Cons: "Tight seats. Very little leg room."
Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "I wanted to get some work done on.y flight but I couldn't even open my laptop screen more than a few inches."
Pros: "N/a"

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: ""Swiss" and punctuality are not anymore going together"
Cons: "Nasty passport control person at gate check in"

Cons: "Nothing, really!"
Pros: "On Board Service"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Everything was very good. From the staff, to the food and comfort. Excellent!"
Cons: "Space for legs seems to become smaller and smaller. In EL AL (flight back) space was wider."
Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."
Pros: "Professional service"
Cons: "Lounge in Dublin poor"
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "People friendly"
Cons: "Food was poor, really poor, no options for the children Headphone socket in the seat"
Pros: "Everything is great when flying Swiss. From online checkin to boarding and throughout the flight. Thumbs up to Swiss. Simply a delight."
Pros: "The fights themselves were nice, the crew was pleasant and the dinner itself was a very nice surprise"
Cons: "Wow what a cramped space- the minute the person leaned their seat back I had no room and I'm a fairly small pElson. The seat in front of me was almost literally in my lap I couldn't open my tray on their seat back unless they sat up to eat"
Cons: "The space for each seat was much too small, especially for the long uncomfortable flight. Seats also uncomfortable to sit on."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 6 days. It was an absolute horrible experience. There was a disconnect between their outsourced baggage tracer company and Swiss. Will NEVER fly again."
Pros: "Food a, entertainment and crew were really good!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaose and seats were tight."
Pros: "Easy, on-time and courteous"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Seats, food , entertainment."
Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Many delays that seemed unnecessary. We waited for a while for late passengers to board, which seemed strange, given that last time when Swiss made me miss my transfer, the next plane left without me when delaying takeoff would not have been necessary at all. After the passengers arrived, we were delayed again because of weather. And once we arrived at Newark, we had to wait for over half an hour to get to the gate for some mysterious reason."
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Pros: "Good food, friendly staff"
Pros: "Fast and efficient transport option to Berlin"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Chocolate"
Cons: "Over 1h delay Horrible sandwich Very rude staff"
Cons: "When I booked the flight I thought it was El Al so I did not order kosher food (as all El Al food is kosher). I only found out later that it was Swiss Air and I was unable to get a kosher meal."
Cons: "Seats in Economy are too tight. There's no room to move, and if the person in front of you leans back, the seat is inches from your face. In an emergency, the instructions are to lean forward with your head on your knees. This maneuver is impossible."
Pros: "Great kosher food! Very kind attendants."
Cons: "not enough foot room."
Cons: "Even one member of the crew was not very nice with my young daughters."
Pros: "upgraded to First Class with Voucher. Service was immaculate, very friendly and professional. First Class, at least on this flight was a bit aged, the seat is quite comfortable but you could see that it is actually already old."
Cons: "Entertainment system with old low-res monitors and outdated system. Didn't work for a while and had to be restarted several times. Needs urgent renewal."
Pros: "Decent food (great chocolate), polite attendants and updated aircraft"
Cons: "Contrary to most experiences in Switzerland, the Swiss Air boarding process is a damn mess! Most airlines board by rows or boarding groups, but Swiss Air does none of that. As soon as first class is boarded, they open boarding to all seats, so it's like cattle boarding a train. With Swiss Air, don't wait to get in line - do it early to ensure you get carry-on storage near your seat."
Pros: "I like that this plane had more leg room then other airlines."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment. Food was great!"
Cons: "There was no indication of what line went where while in the boarding process. Nobody told us that we needed to get a blue stamp (??) on our boarding ticket, for what I still don't know. So then we needed to get in ANOTHER line and get the stamp and then stand in line AGAIN just to get on the plane! For being Swiss you'd think you'd have this part down AT LEAST! Boarding by seat number would have been a better idea. Everybody was all over the place getting their bags stored above."

completely packed old plane, very uncomfortable. this flight is always packed, time to use some better planes or add more flights

small food!! Need more ! And drink too!

Cons: "It was full, Ben if Lufthansa said on their website that they keep physical distance for passangers! Liars!"
Cons: "I could put my seat down, the button wasn’t working.."
Pros: "The punctuality and the entertainment"
Cons: "Perhaps a more organized boarding process"
Cons: "All of our luggage was lost and did not arrive in Prague"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Airline lost my bag. Not happy at all. Lufthansa is a let down. I’m an beside myself and there are meds in my bag that are needed."
Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Pros: "The person sitting next to me in the aisle seat moved so I had a window seat and free access to the aisle so I could use the bathroom when I wanted which let me stay hydrated on the plane. This was great. Crew was overall pretty responsive and helpful. Never a line for bathroom"
Cons: "The people sitting beside me was very loud and they didn’t stop talking the whole time."
Pros: "Very amazing"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Smooth quiet flight."
Cons: "Mac and cheese isn’t what I was expecting for vegetarian."
Pros: "very good on-board service , good LH crew while checking in i got an upgrade to premium economy very good food ....quite surprised easy check-in , no problem with suitcase that was a bit overweight"
Cons: "arriving in toronto , arrival gate at pearson was blocked by another plane ...so despite being a few minutes early , arrival at the terminal was finally 20min later than scheduled"
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."
Pros: "Clean , newer plane"
Cons: "Most unengaged, bored crew. They were simply going through the motions. I had a seat mate who stood in the aisle over my head for over 3 hours. Each time anyone walked down the aisle-/including a crew member-/ she would bang my head, lean against me and even though I asked nicely that she sit down or go to the back since it was 3 am and I was trying to sleep, she wanted to stand near her husband in the row ahead of me. And the crew never said a word."
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."
Pros: "That we made it alive."
Cons: "The 1 hr flight that turned into an 8 hour fiasco."
Cons: "The first flight for this trio was cancelled .. stop with automated cron jobs"
Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Pros: "No problems and great food service"
Cons: "Too few water servings. Made me sick."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Checking in on-line was not very "user friendly". Our aircraft had to be replaced causing a 2 hour delay, part of which was an ATC sequencing delay. The 50 minute ATC delay couldn't be controlled by LH, but the original equipment replacement was at the bottom of the overall delay. My "A" window seat in economy had significantly reduce foot space due to a metal box installed in the space. The seat was not particularly well designed, but it's economy so you get what you get. The food was average at best."
Pros: "Right on time, smooth flight, crew at the gate and onboard were super. Food was fine and plane was clean."
Cons: "The only problem with comfort is when the person in Front of me reclined the seat. I could not see my screen well Or get in and out of my seat well and had to recline my own seat in order to do so."
Pros: "Outstanding cabin crew."
Cons: "Mediocre food with totally inadequate available snacks between meal services. Inadequate meal before landing."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The food was not that great"
Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."
Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."
Cons: "Headphones not working properly in the whole economy class! Only one of the headphones was working... WOW, Lufthansa, never seen anything like this! Second serving of food was the worst I have been served on an airplane - a stale pizza. On a number of occasions I asked the hostess for a piece of bread and a glass of wine - she promised to be back and never was."
Pros: "Outstanding service in cabin service, on time, legroom in economy."
Cons: "Seats a little hard. Very good instead of great."
Pros: "good flight hardly any turbulence. Good food/drink choice. The crew was helpful and courteous."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled way, way too close for a comfortable transfer since the second leg of the trip was to go overseas having to go through 3 different queues for passport, boarding and security lines. Need more time to pass the long lines and still be able to catch the connecting flight. Not a smooth connection."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Excellent service and very professional crew both on the ground and in the air. Flight comfortable and a right on time. I highly recommend Lufthansa."
Pros: "On time and straightforward - unlike the previous night when an Air Traffic Control weather delay prevented a connection at Chicago (no fault of Lufthansa). So I stayed over in Arkansas at home as there was no offer of compensation (hotel or $) for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient crew. Good food and entertainment. On schedule."
Pros: "there was food on the plane, which was quite o.k. and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as it arrived too late. the boarding therefore, was a bit hectic, especially as Lufthansa does not make boarding according to zones or group numbers like most of the other major airlines."
Pros: "Once I got on the plane, everything was fine and easy. The airport drove me crazy and the lack of confirmation on my ticket was more than annoying."
Cons: "The late notification of a change in gate number and the lack of confirmation that I had a reserved seat on the flight. I was kept in suspense right up to the minute I boarded the aircraft. Very nerve wracking."
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."
Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."
Cons: "I selected seats and when I got on the plane I was moved twice. The seats were very small and uncomfortable. The food was bad."
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Nice crew, made an effort to find a special meal that was ordered for the original connecting flight and was not transferred to the alternate flight since I boarded on standby."

Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Pros: "I love the food"
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"
Pros: "Great flight crew and smooth landing"
Cons: "Pretzels are not a good snack"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything is too cramped. The sound on the entertainment unit is terrible."
Pros: "Nothing good to say for this flights overall."
Cons: "Spent over two hours on the plane/tarmac waiting for take off. Air Canada sucks."
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, good movie choices"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Crew attentive"
Cons: "Check in REALLY slow. Seat space unacceptably too small. Couldn’t hear entertainment sound over engine noise with earphones so could not use entertainment. Need better earphones. Chair wouldn’t recline."
Pros: "Service counter staff was helpful to confirm seating although I did not like being put on standby. This happens too often with Air Canada."
Cons: "Stop the overbooking!!!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "My wife’s screen did not work. The pitch between the seats was too narrow for a transatlantic flight. Older plane that needed to be cleaned and updated."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Pros: "Entertainment. GoGo did not want to work for me at 1 he before arrival."
Cons: "Give me a coupon for food before takeoff or on arrival. Skip the CupofNoodles. After Japan and Shanghai, cup of noodles seem really in bad taste."
Pros: "Air Canadas flights were on time and run very well. Wasn't impressed with the food choices but felt that what was provided was of good quality."
Cons: "My girlfriend has a nut allergy and we asked if a particular bread contained nuts and flight attendant basically said they don't know what's in the food. I don't think that's acceptable."
Pros: "They do not have an office or ticket desk in Pudong airport which made early arrival into this airport difficult. No one answered the phone at the Very little English is spoken here"
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."
Pros: "First flight comfortable fast clean aircraft Second flight older plane small not as clean"
Cons: "Air canada has a problem at every arrival gate each time we landed there was no sttebdebt st the gate and so we sat on the tarmac fir a while while they awIted somebody to come and drive the Jetway to allow us to park and deplane This happened all three times"
Pros: "Getting off the plane!!!"
Cons: "Everything!!!"
Pros: "the cew was nice"
Cons: "The terminal had no food options at all when we were in a very delayed flight and hungry. We were not given seats ahead of time and therefore were assigned the last row which was very uncomfortable and could not recline. No one was at the desk to help with the seats for a Very long time. The boarding process was not good."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."
Pros: "Didn't actually take this flight due to a missed connection."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Some of the equipment on the airplane didn't work. TV monitors."
Pros: "Wasn't too late. Plane seemed clean."
Cons: "Seated beside a young child with behavioral problems. Father mostly slept. Child stood on seat and jumped up and down, crawled under seats, threw ipad on my foot repeatedly, spilled his drink all over himself and his seat, screamed whenever his seat belt had to go on or his table top couldn't be down. At one point, the dad lost his temper, swore at the child, and covered him with a blanket in a big screaming match before doing up his seat belt--I was afraid he had smothered him but it had the effect of calming him down. No attendant even tried to intervene apart from asking "can I see your kid's boarding pass?" People should have to disclose when they are travelling with a child with severe behavioural problems and attendants should rescue anyone forced to sit beside one or at least make the parent care for the child. Also, a minimum of crackers or pretzels would be nice with drink on 5-hour flight. The entertainment system wasn't operating correctly and kept having to be reset by crew or reset itself. And, after first class etc. board, why don't they board the people at the back of the plane first, not the ones at the front? It took forever because people in front zones hadn't settled into their seats before people from the back zones tried to board."
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"
Pros: "I had a medical incident and air Canada moved me to a more comfortable seat and gave me oxygen to help me recover. Also the stuardesses all were really nice and made it their priority to make sure I was doing OK through the rest of the flight"
Cons: "There was no designated person as a medical professional to handle emergency situations. an emergency situation can occur anytime. luckily there was a passenger aboard who knew what to do I think his name was Dave you should give him thanks."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
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: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
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: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "Same as anove"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Coach seating on the 777 is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Stewardess was friendly Movies were good Relatively room and clean Customs in Vancouver was awesome!!!"
Cons: "Steward getting on the plane in Shanghai had an attitude, was actually a jerk Food was not very appetizing"
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."
Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."
Pros: "Great crew and service. Seats were comfortable for tall people."
Cons: "Delays for both international flights. Food made us sick."
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: "Nothing."
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"
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."
Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."
Pros: "Weather was nice so it was not due to weather. We had to stay in Toronto overnight."
Pros: "bigger seats than most average asian airlines"
Cons: "service is poor. have been on both economy and busines class in air canada and you are treated very differently. the staff on economy treat you indifferently and have a little chip of their shoulder. the food is awful and most flights you have to pay for food, even for international flights, which is apparently against the law as they are obligated to serving food. i had to pay for a bowl of noodles - omg. essentially it is really about service. Dismal. It is noted they often win north american awards for their service. If anyone has flown american airlines - yes it may be the best of the worst. So if you have an option, skip it altogether. Try Cathay / Qatar / Singapore airlines wow!"
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: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."
