Initially I had a short layover—booked through Lufthansa I was worried about. Then My first flight got delayed, and continued getting delayed, and I was sure I was going to miss the next flight. That got delayed too though, so while I still ended up with a short layover it was enough for me to make it before boarding began. Then my second flight also kept getting delayed while my third one did not. The transition between my second and third flight was supposed to be my longest and a breeze, but when it was all said and done I had right about an hour to make it. It was a bit more stressful than I would have liked.
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The WiFi"
Cons: "Excellent! Got us home on time and with great service! Thank you"
Cons: "I couldn't put my seat back properly because the man behind me was too big. Please put big people in spacious places its more comfortable for all."
Cons: "Best airline! More space between seats. Great service. Great meals and snacks and overall excellent experience! I've travel a lot and no other airline in North America comes close! Thanks!!"
Pros: "The food was better than most other airlines"
Cons: "The boarding process is confusing. Checking the passports separately in the same area boarding lead to a lot of congestion and confusion. The boarding pass reading machines often didn't work. It looked like passengers in higher classes couldn't use the economy machines."
Pros: "Everything, I love Lufthansa"
Cons: "Seats are super tight and very uncomfortable for tall people."
Pros: "I booked with Lufthansa, but this was a United flight. I prefer United's boarding process with multiple groups to Lufthansa's single group. Lufthansa's leads to a very very long line 20 minutes before boarding starts."
Cons: "United had fewer movie options, fewer meals, and worse food than the Lufthansa flight we took when we traveled to Frankfurt. It was also delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. I will have to pay more attention when I book next time to avoid United flights."
Cons: "The entertainment choices were poor and the connection not good. Seats too close together so difficult to get in and out of seats"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, food was bad"
Pros: "Prior flight from Zagreb to Munich was delayed 1 hour due to inclement weather - not the airline's fault. However although I made my connecting flight, my suitcase didn't. I'm writing this the next day & waiting for my suitcase to be delivered."
Cons: "There was no announcement about the delay & the reason why. We found out by reading the board. The passengers found out from each other what caused the delay. Passengers would experience less anxiety if they were informed what's going on."
Pros: "Food was good but not enough."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working."
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Airport is too hot"
Pros: "Crew was ok. Had to manage difficult passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment. Average food. Little space for legs."
Cons: "the plane was late boarding and some on board had tight connections. crew were aware but didnt let us leave first.we barely made our connection as we had to go through security in Munich. stress could have been avoided by letting us deplane first."
Pros: "Airy plane. on time. Good service. Flight wasn't full"
Pros: "Can I say basically everyyyyyything. The meals were amazing with respect to taste and the timeliness of them. The crew was extremely courteous and kind"
Cons: "Just typically being on a plane not much can do about the space in economy"
Pros: "Food and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was 1h40 late. Upon arrival we parked at a gate, but had to be bused. And it was raining"
Pros: "They’re very polite persons"
Cons: "The way they treat people"
Pros: "Very hospitable. Really enjoyed the food. Got bumped up to Business class on both legs of the trip."
Cons: "The boarding could have been better organized at Frankfurt. Was very scattered."
Pros: "I believe Lufthansa does more than the majority of other airlines for economy class passengers."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "Every time I fly Lufthansa I am super pleased with the food. All other aspects fine too."
Pros: "Good plane and service"
Cons: "Ticket check in was unclear, apparently we had to verify our tickets at the gate but there was no sign or previous instruction from the check in counter. I waited through the boarding line only to be told to first verify my ticket. My bags were lost on the Madrid to frankfurt flight, the first part. Unacceptable, if the airline can not schedule flights at their own hub that guarantee swift transfer it us pathetic."
Pros: "Stewardess enjoyed her work encouraged us to take better seats. A full hot meal."
Pros: "Perfectly okay flight, slept through with no disturbances. Crew were friendly enough and landed fine. Airport took me a while to figure out though."
Pros: "hot food and some complimentary alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "Very good travel , good airplain , and good kosher food"
Pros: "Luftahnsa is great. I can’t seem to get our system to recognize the two Condor is abysmal"
Cons: "Plane was delayed forcing me to run to my connecting flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Although the departure was a little bit bumpy, the snack was tasty!"
Pros: "Didn't try the food."
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary regarding the flight itself. The gate was changed twice, which was inconvenient. Not much leg room or no adjustable pillows on the seats."
Cons: "I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in."
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: "Extremely nice staff starting from check-in and till the end of flight, everything was perfectly on time"
Pros: "Punctual, efficient, Lufthansa never fail to deliver."
Pros: "Everything! The food was nice, I liked the entertainment too!"
Cons: "That my fellow passenger took some of my limited space due to being obese:("
Pros: "Flying from San Francisco to Madrid via Munich in economy class. All very good in general, in fact the best experience compared with other airlines I have used in the past for the same trip. Vegetarian meal was good, but only on the long leg. Munich to Madrid was not possible to choose the special meal, but that is not that important for me, so I eat what I could and that was good enough. The crew was super nice. The plane is huge, toilets are literally 'downstairs' and extra room to hang out. I will definitely choose Lufthansa again for my trips to Europe."
Cons: "If you want to reserve a seat in advance you need to pay for it, that's the only thing I didn't quite like because I found it after I bought the ticket. It was not mentioned clearly in advance, and it felt like an afterwards surprise, really? I paid for it anyways. For me it is worth it to make sure I get a window seat on the long leg flight."
Pros: "Extra luggage at not extra charge. Good food... Love the crew"
Cons: "Messy boarding"
Cons: "I saw fly inside the cabin, disgusting."
Pros: "Fast the boarding process all in time good food"
Cons: "All was alright"
Cons: "Very long lines while checking in"
Pros: "He was kind."
Cons: "Despite the fact that I knew I would miss my connecting flight in Frankfurt because of the delay in Switzerland, the gate agent had no control to schedule me on an alternative flight. I missed my flight coming out because the connection was so tight and the Frankfurt airport so large so I tried to adjust things in Geneva to be proactive. The agent called his manager who said he couldn't do anything. As a result, I did indeed miss my flight in Frankfurt and ended up having to spend the night in Frankfurt. I got back 20 hours later than I should have, and all because Lufthansa doesn't empower their gate agents to use common sense to help their customers."
Pros: "Please do it more easy for the costumers"
Cons: "The people who have baggage for check in can do it since the beginin the travel gol and back"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable, and I had plenty of space, because I was sitting near to the exit door. The service and the crew were just great. I love traveling with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable trip"
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"
Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
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: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"
Pros: "everything....staff, atmosphere, food, services."
Pros: "Highly efficient crew."
Pros: "American really exceeded our expectations on both overseas flights on this trip. Good food, nice service, plenty of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The plane was very hot when boarding and then very cold while flying. It was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Inflexible employee, bad website, worse app. NO ROOM for mid seat traveler. Had to keep arms crossed the whole trip, Dangerous for somebody like me with respiratory illness and sleep apnea"
Cons: "They left over an hour late, then couldn't get the bags unloaded in philly. Loads of us missed our connections and we've all been stuck here overnight. American staff pretty much all shrugged."
Pros: "The crew and the seats were okay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 2 hrs. We should receive credits for that."
Pros: "The crew was actually amazing, and all were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment on the 8 hour flight was horrible, and there was no way to recharge my phone battery. There was no TV that I could watch, and the "free entertainment" did not work for me."
Cons: "Crew not attentive, even in business class. Entertainment system broken for entire flight."
Pros: "Food and entertainment is nice. A bit larger seats would be nice or at least make the first clase section more affordable"
Cons: "Make the first clase a bit less expensive. The price for an extra luggage is incredibly excessive. $200.00 for and extra suitcase round trip, really?!"
Pros: "Robbie and Carlos were exceptional. The gate agents were exceedingly rude and I will be filing a formal complaint."
Cons: "Gate agents"
Cons: "How is it possible, in this day and age, that American flies a 9.5 hour flight with no individual seat screens, just the 1980's style middle-of the-aisle screen with 2 x TERRIBLE movies?? I know, there are much worse things in life, but an Airline that claims to be SOOO big and great, this is a total disgrace, seriously. And try to explain that to my kids-ages 9 and 10-who had NEVER flown a plane without individual screens (and my son has been already to 20 countries....yes, we fly.) Did I mention that the food is the worse in the industry in this airline? Give me now a reason to keep flying American, please...."
Pros: "lots of legroom, such nice crew, nice seats the food was much better than my expectations, the ice cream snack was a surprise treat"
Cons: "older plane, with center monitor for viewing movies, so no choice, but sometimes thats nice too, i watched some things I would not normally have bothered to."
Cons: "Too much delay"
Cons: "3 hours late and I had to pay for my 1 checked bag. The price of the ticket does not include 1 checked bag??!! Seriously price gauging if ever. The airline industry as a whole is ridiculous and NOT user friendly."
Pros: "Boarding went well. The service was good. The seats were pretty solid. I like the 2-4-2 seating on the A-332. AA check-in went very smoothly."
Cons: "The touch screens were fairly poor on the entertainment centers. The meals were just OK. The headrests on the seats weren't as supportive as I'd have like on a long flight."
Pros: "Bed was "sleep-able""
Cons: "Going the food was so ordinary and right after dinner crew kinda disappeared, got to get everything for yourself, even remove glasses with liquid during turbulence. Booked with BA but it was operated by AA. Never again, Coming back the food was better but was told they were out of fish, my husband on the other side of me was told they were out of chicken. when questioned, got a dumb answer. ran out of wine (red&White) Spain & France on a day flight & told us they have no control. Service sucks, except 1 nice fellow, who apologized. 6 bottles for 36 passengers. 1 crew had cold towel around his neck sitting, 1 doing crossword so we had to help ourselves. 1 crew saw something in the plane & screamed so hard woke up a sleeping pilot. 1 crew slept for 2 hrs and 1 watch TV for 1 hrs. NEVER VERY, IF I CAN AVOID IT, WILL I TRAVEL WITH AA. They own a lot of us more than an apology."
Pros: "Fast flight that included an afternoon snack, that was a nice surprise. Tight seats and no entertainment, which is to be expected for such as short flight. Got to our destination about 25 minutes early!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class because I had to fly home early after I suffered a crushed wrist and broken arm while in Spain. I could not have made it through the flight without the extra room and pillows and my daughter by my side."
Cons: "The stewards and Stewardesses were very unfriendly. I was in so much pain and not one person asked if there was anything they could do to make the flight more comfortable. Just the kindness of offering would’ve been so nice. One girl just threw a water bottle in my lap!"
Pros: "The in flight experience and entrrntainment was great."
Cons: "The preboarding process by American Airlines was really bad. My passport was looked at 6 times before I boarded. This is after going though passport control by Spain officials at the airport. AA has people waving you down the aisle looking at your passport and sending you to then Verify my boarding pass and that I had documents ok to travel, they told me I did and still sent me over to a security person who asked more questions than the immigration officials in the US, he then sent me to the counter to get my passport scanned ( not sure what that meant), after waiting 10 minutes of waiting the counter clerk asked me what I needed and I told her I was sent there, it was evident there was no reason for me to be there and she printed my boarding pass, which I didn’t need since I had a mobile pass. Then when boarding the aee two people asking a bunch of questions about people having control of their items and looking at your documents which the person who scans to board does again...really very inefficient and slow, it sure it is really helping with safety. Could be done smoother, faster and a lot less people."
Pros: "Vegetarian chickpea curry were delicious"
Cons: "7 hour flight with no individual entertainment, plane was not clean chairs worn and controls were filthy. One flight attendant asked “Are you going to eat”? Customer interaction leaves much to be desired."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full and so there was more space to spread out than is normal on long-haul flights."
Cons: "For the second time on a Madrid/JFK flight in two weeks, overhead lights were broken for some seats, which is absurd for a 7.5 hour flight. Luckily, my flight attendant was kind enough to allow me to change seats to one in which the overhead light was actually working. Unfortunately, the plane was so busted that even though my overhead light was working, the headphone jacks in both of the seats that I had access to went off in the midst of food service, and as far as I could tell was never reset. Finally, and most appallingly, one of the flight attendants was completely out of control, and during the boarding process repeatedly and loudly scolded passengers. During service, she rammed the food cart into multiple seats so hard that food flew out of it onto the floor. Rather than apologizing to the customers whose seats she had rammed, she laughed loudly"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was not full."
Cons: "The food was terrible, it’s getting worse every year. It’s worse than hospital food. One extra luggage was 80,00 Euros which I find expressly pricy when usually it doesn’t cost more than $50.00 US dollars"
Pros: "the flight was nearly empty so everyone got to stretch out and there was almost always a restroom available"
Cons: "I got a lot of engine noise so I didn't enjoy the entertainment as much"
Cons: "This was an 8 hour international flight and there was no leg room, outdated amenities and no tvs! How can people take an 8 hour flight without individual air vents??? I have never had such an uncomfortable flight, and I will never fly with you again."
Pros: "Friendly crew, flight not full so able to switch seat to bulk head seat for more leg room."
Cons: "The staff member at the gate counter in Philly was very short and rude. She asked for people volunteer to check their carry-on bags and when I took mine up she was very curt. She asked me for my seat number (I didn't hear her) and her tone got worse. A woman who did not speak English need assistance and was turned away by this person with s shrug. The Latina finally stood in the middle of the gate area asking for help from anyone who could speak English. I just spent 18 days I Madrid and never once was rejected when I asked for assistance. I was not happy with your employee and I was ashamed to hear an American treat someone that way. In the employee's defense, she was alone at the dest up until boarding time and was juggling a lot of balls without any other support. Not a good experience."
Pros: "We left on time. Unlimited beverages."
Cons: "AA used too small of a jet for the cross atlantic flight. Therefore, we had to stop in Bangor, ME to refuel before landing in JFK. We landed in JFK 1.5 hours late as a result. Those of us who had a connecting flight to ORD as the final destination had our luggage lost. When explaining the refuel in Bangor, the flight attendants were very condescending, rude, and one raised her voices in an aggressive way (while the passenger I witnessed did not). This particular flight attendant must have been personally upset by the delay the refuel caused, because she made sure she was the first to get off the plane. I fly internationally at least twice per year for the past several years, and I was horrified by the entire flight. I will now know better to pay a bit more for another carrier."
Cons: "Although we can't fault the airline for turning back after being in flight for an hour (due to some computer glitch), it created a 5-hour plus delay. American Airlines was operating the BA flight. They put up passengers in a hotel and provided us with meal vouchers. This was appreciated. But the hotel was shabby and its staff including the shuttle driver were rude and slow. Considering the horrible delay we experienced getting to our destination, this 2-day return from Spain to Atlanta, was just bitter icing on the cake."
Pros: "Staff great, food good"
Cons: "Seats had no cushioning for bottom. Need to improve"
Pros: "There were a lot of movie choices; the flight attendants were amazing!"
Cons: "We were late leaving so I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "Nothing special about the flight"
Pros: "Great service. And flight and food"
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Pros: "Lots of food and drinks, nice crew and pretty good experience"
Cons: "Tv screen too slow..... doesn't work that good,the plane was a little noisier at take off than usually, nothing mayor...."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "Trip on time"
Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."
Cons: "Was disappointed to learn after buying a British airways ticket that we were only on American Airlines flights. The seats were very uncomfortable and we did not get personal screens which seems uncommon for an international flight."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had the row to myself and got to stretch out. Great selection of movies. Decent food."
Cons: "One FA seemed visibly annoyed with me; I'm honestly not sure what I did. I am a FA for another airline; didn't identify myself as such but always make sure to not be "that passenger." During two beverage services she did not ask me if I wanted anything but simply looked at me with disdain and sighed loudly. She wasn't rude; just not friendly and I never once saw her smile. She seemed tired and annoyed. I understand that feeling. I've been a FA for 16 years, still junior at my company, but it reminded me how important body language and facial expressions are when we work hospitality and customer service in the public eye. I hope everything is ok with her and I'm sorry if I did something that irritated her. I didn't get her name."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"
Pros: "The crew was one of the best flight crews I have ever met! We had many of the same attendants on the flight back to MIA, as well. Give them raises!"
Cons: "The crew really seemed like they didn't like their job, and didn't want to be there. I felt kind of bad for them, nobody should be stuck in a job they hate."
Pros: "No water no food nothing good"
Cons: "The Live TV entertainment froze so many times when trying to watch either CNN or CNBC. Finally gave up on it. The Touch Screen responsiveness could be much better. However; once a movie was selected, watching it was an excellent experience. The Leg room was not the best either, but I blame myself on this in that I almost waited till the last minute to buy my self a ticket."
Pros: "Staff was pretty good, and while the food wasn't incredible, it wasn't bad."
Cons: "I hold the personal opinion that the headrests on transatlantic seats should be the sort that prevent one's head from falling to the side. It seemed like this was a domestic plane assigned to an international route."
Pros: "We were greeted by an AA employee after our connecting flight arrived and escorted through the various security steps to the departure gate. The vegetarian meal was very good."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is grossly inadequate. The entertainment system has poor controls and had to be rebooted."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Attendants very good."
Cons: "Everything fine."
Online check in the night before made boarding easy. Free check in of luggage at the gate was also offered. Crew offered drinks twice. Wish they would give food like they used to instead of selling it. On board entertainment was good & worked well. Surprised that it was a full flight but it was comfortable. Boarding and deplaning was organized and check in luggage came out promptly!
Cons: "BOTH OF MY CHECKED IN LUGGAGE WERE LOST"
Pros: "I lost my phone in the taxi and Javier offered his cellphone and spoke to the taxi driver to get it returned to me (I didn’t speak Spanish) before my flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. On board, the seats were too small as per usual with Air Canada’s seating configuration. They tend to pack the cabin with as many passengers with little room."
Cons: "Good food. Best airline I’ve traveled besides Southwest. First international flight and the crew was so nice and professional!"
Pros: "The AC flight between Vancouver —> Toronto seems much more organized than Toronto —> Vancouver. Flight departed on time and staff handled boarding more smoothly."
Cons: "Only one drink served on a 4.5 hour flight, I am so thirsty. AC has some of the smallest seats around also."
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: "Got the seats I wanted, movies were good. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "In Montreal they took my carry on bag stating it was too big, I have traveled with it many many times and it always fits except the tiny planes, this was a 787. When I got on the plane many people had larger bags then mine and it was the last bag on the carousel at the other end."
Pros: "The only problem was that I could not check in till morning 4 hours before my flight. Everything else was great"
Pros: "The exact timing going and coming"
Cons: "After returning back and the airplane taxing on the ground it takes one hour to go out of the airport gate to my riding although I have no luggage"
Pros: "I like the courteous crew members, very cordial & attentive."
Cons: "The long wait on the aircraft after all passengers and crew were on board waiting for the oxygen tank to arrive."
Pros: "This flight did have in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was only 2 hrs. So nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Not much...crew very nice"
Cons: "On the flight coming to Toronto the staff randomly choose ppl to check bags at gate...no consistency which is very frustrating Flight was delayed. On the flight got returning I arrived at airport at 730 for my 9 PM flight ....they knew it would be delayed earlier in the day but never posted it so ppl could adjust their schedules. My last 4 flights with AC have been disappointing"
Pros: "Chris from AirCanada customer service is a true hero to the industry and I'm sure he deserves much more recognition than he gets. Thanks Chris for helping save our travels!!!"
Cons: "When checking in for our flight, AirCanada prompted me to select which passengers' email addresses should be used to send updates in case of changes, delays, or cancelations. I selected the both of us to receive the updates. However, we never got any notice that our flight was CANCELLED. They cancelled it well in advance that had we known, we wouldn't have gone to the airport but NO - we already arrived and passed through security only to arrive out by the gates and see on the board it was cancelled. Even while passing through customs, the officer said he didn't see it on the flight schedule and then said, "oh it's just listed at a different gate." The way in which AirCanada handled the incident was completely unprofessional and just plain stupid. I for sure will be giving my business to Amtrak or Greyhound the next time I need a trip from NYC to Montreal."
Pros: "It was a fine international flight. Service from flight attendants was good and amply offered throughout flight."
Pros: "Easy , on time, friendly"
Cons: "My husband went onto the plane in Toronto bite-free and left the plane in Toyko with over 20+ bites from what we assume were bed bug bites. This left us in a panic about dealing with bed bugs. Apparently, bed bugs on planes are becoming more common place! We've contacted Air Canada via email about a week ago and are waiting to hear back from them. Furthermore, the flight to and from Tokyo did not allow much time for sleeping. The flight attendants were going up and down the aisles very often with meals/snacks, drinks, duty-free, and charity requests. I was expecting a lull after the dinner meal where they would dim the lights and limit services for a few hours, but it did not happen. While impressive how many services were available it was a bit much and would have preferred less to allow for some quiet time. Finally, the return flight from Tokyo to Toronto there was a single flight attendant who was quite rude to the other attendants as well as passengers. While boarding a lady in front of us didn't have her boarding pass when entering the plane but was with her husband. This flight attendant asked her for the pass, and she said she knew where her seat was because her husband was right in front of her and they were sitting together (at this point we had our boarding passed check 3 times before even boarding the plane). The attendant raised her voice at the lady and told her it didn't matter and that she needed the pass. Within a few minutes, she was getting after a few flight attendants for insignificant things. This behavior continued throughout the flight, very unprofessional. This was my first time flying Air Canada and I was not impressed."
Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. There was ample room for carry on luggage. There was many options for entertainment. The staff was friendly. In addition, there was a good amount of food. Overall, very pleased."
Pros: "My 55 min flight ended up taking nearly 3 hours since there were about 9 people that needed to gate check their bags. Air Canada needs to figure a better way to gauge the carryon situation. People had giant bags that just couldn't fit in the overhead. Also- there were far too many people with carry one. I paid to check my bag... then got stuck with my backpack under my feet and jacket in my lap for 2.5 hours as we sat on the runway."
Cons: "To be honest, nothing specific stands out. The whole ordeal was pretty much a nightmare. We were offered some pretzels and water while we sat on the runway for hours."
Cons: "The type of planes they use "Rouge" are too small, even for business class passengers. Seating & legroom is like upgraded economy, not business."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and nice, plane was new and in a very good condition. Flight was not fully booked so we could move around and take even 4 seats to lay down and fly comfortably."
Cons: "Boarding was over an hour later than it supposed to be. Toronto always has some " surprises" for passengers. Food could be better."
Pros: "Our flight went by quickly, as the seats in Economy were very comfortable and the crew was very kind and accommodating. There was a great selection of movies and TV on the individual entertainment screens. We would definitely fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Nothing- one of our best international flights!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed three hours but they kept changing it ...Original was 945..Changed to 1015 changed to 1120pm then 1150pm then 1215 am then 1250 am.My mom is a Parkinson's patient and has been for ,16 years...Terrible service esp for elderly and families with young children...Had I the choice would not choose to fly w AC again!"
Pros: "Flight was ok, the aircraft was in excellent condition. The food was also very good."
Cons: "The flight information stated that the flight was a Lufthansa flight when it was actually an Air Canada flight. That caused some confusion and possible delays at the Madrid airport."
Pros: "The crew were helpful & friendly. The flight arrived on time."
Cons: "The rows of seats were too close together for comfort."
Pros: "Stuff was pretty friendly,"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed, food was not very good and they didn't have enough chicken options when our turn came. Movies/TV selection was very limited."
Pros: "It was good experience."
Cons: "Snacks could be improved."
Cons: "all flights to and from were delayed"
Cons: "That was a first time i saw a paid entertainment system. That was a long-haul (9 hrs) flight. Either you pay and have an iPad with movies, music etc. or nothing. Very interesting."
Pros: "In seat entertainment console with recent movies. Only food for purchase."
Cons: "My flight was changed to be 15 minutes earlier a week before I was to leave. Then cancelled the day before I was to leave and I was rebooked onto another one 2 1/2 hours later. I was so looking forward to that 787 flight. Ended up on an A320. I had to have a mad scramble to change my seat assignment as them moved me to a middle seat. I need an aisle seat because of a handicap so I got that changed just in time. Then When I got my boarding pass printed I got a gate number. Which got changed between the printing of the boarding pass and the walk to the gate. The flight was fine. Just getting to the flight was an adventure. Then I forgot my neck pillow."
Pros: "Return flight -staff were friendly, more spaceous"
Cons: "Arrive flight to Punta cana -staff could be more corteous and friendly"
Pros: "The crew members were very attentive and welcoming."
Cons: "Like last year both flights going and returning had long delays making the boarding experience really poor."
Pros: "The crew is top notch. The plane was in great condition, the pilots had good landings. Would definitely fly Air Canada again. Both flights there and back departed on time, never had any set backs."
Cons: "The movie selection is so limited, this should definitely be expanded. Also the controls while you're watching a film do not allow for quick return to main menu, maybe there is but it should be quite obvious how to do that. I'm not someone who cannot handle technology, so it should be easier than whatever mechanism there is at the moment. Good should be included."
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."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly. Equipment comfortable, many entertainment options."
Cons: "Long lines for boarding, continuous calling of 50+ passenger names while boarding lines congested the gate."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and we lost our connection flight"
Pros: "The first meal on my return flight was correct"
Cons: "The second meal had cheese in it and I took a bite before I noticed. They gave me a new one but didnt seem bothered by it. Dietary restrictions NEED to be taken seriously, thank god I'm not, but some people are deathly allergic. This wasn't the first time they messed up my food either."
Pros: "I liked my seat in the back, the crew, the movies, and the food."
Cons: "The two different technical issues they had that made us leave almost two hours late and caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Landed alive in vancouver"
Cons: "Second time in two months that they delayed my flight by at least 3 hours."
Cons: "Nothing, everything was bad. Flight were late and service was really bad. I will never fly Air Canada again!"
Pros: "nice, helpful staff relatively organised boarding"
Cons: "very little selection in movies tight quarters food tasted old and was little: shredded carrots as salad and probably best part of meal"
Pros: "The direct connection between Toronto and Madrid, since we travel at least once a year or more to Spain The staff on ground and on board were simply excellent, communicated well in Spanish, French and English The food and drinks (wine) were excellent and plentiful."
Cons: "The coffee could be a bit stronger (Spanish style)"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. Great service & comfort."
Cons: "Delays, waiting with little explanation."
Cons: "The seating was tight."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a non-stop flight."
Cons: "There were so many things I didn't like. First of all, the departure time was delayed by 30 minutes. Not cool. Secondly, the plane itself felt very small and old. It was very cold inside the plane which made the ride very uncomfortable. Thirdly, there was absolutely no in-flight entertainment on this flight, making it a very boring experience. I would not recommend this kind of air travel!"
Cons: "No viewing screens and fewer selections of movies from air canada app compared with selection from vancouver to tokyo. I don't know why our return trip was so different."
Pros: "The flight was on time compared to the schedule"
Cons: "Too cold (temperature) No screen but only ipad to rent"
