Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Cons: "Delayed and did not explain why"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Flight on time! Missed connections. In hotel overnight. Missed the event I was travelling to attend!"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "It was a shortest duration flight of the three so I couldn’t point out here what was lacking. Thank you!"
Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."
Cons: "The Comfort+ seat, while it had plenty of leg room in front, had a small width-box that many Americans (being larger than perhaps they should be) will find extremely uncomfortable at best, and unable to fit in at worst."
Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."
Cons: "There was zero entertainment inflight and logging onto Wi-Fi was very difficult. I would rather have had free Wi-Fi and a screen to watch movies/games on rather than or in addition to the drinks."
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Cons: "The fact the the toilette was kitty cornered in the mid cabin bathroom is a joke on modern society."
Cons: "The flight attendants skipped many rows of people not offering food or beverage. I wasnt sleep so not sure why I wasnt asked did I want a beverage or snack"
Cons: "Flight was 1,5 hr delayed, which almost caused me to miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Seats won’t stay reclined."
Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Cons: "My kids were asleep when the flight attendant passed the snacks . I asked to get the snack for them and she told me they will have to get it in the back of plane once awake. Didn’t argue but was surprised"
Pros: "Very friendly crew with a clean plane!"
Pros: "Nicer plane"
Cons: "One stewardess almonds mowed me down with cart"
Pros: "This was my daughter’s first solo travel home from college. She said the staff was helpful and kind. She loved that the flight was not over crowded. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Only negative thing she could say was her flight was delayed an hour. But that isn’t terrible considering all the holiday travelers."
Cons: "Wheelchair shortage on arrival, although I had one reserved. Waited for a while then walked. Not ideal. Very long wait for bus to rental car center."
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta. The Delta rep was able to help me. The airlines provided good service. But I probably will avoid booking with Kayak again."
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"
Cons: "seats too close from front to back, and not adequately cushioned"
Pros: "No delay and friendly crew!"
Cons: "Not much leg room and the coffee was horrific."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Flight itself uneventful"
Pros: "Crew was courteous, I asked for a blanket and a banana (I saw some being passed to delta select (?) passengers), and got both, no one snapped at me like on an earlier flight.5"
Cons: "The flight was 3.5 hrs late. (Had it been on time, I would have missed it entirely though because Atlanta airport passport control was complete chaos, I heard the airport wa closed earlier for weather related reasons). Enough said."
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality. I also am surprised that airlines (not just Delta) continue to provide such low quality food options on flights. I think consumers would pay more for better options."
Pros: "flight was on time..arrived early..friendly staff.."
Pros: "It left and arrived on time"
Cons: "They didn’t have wine in such a long flight"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "About 10-15 yrs ago I stopped transatlantic flights on Delta. It was a scruffy airline with uninterested cabin crew & not to talk of food etc. What a change! Neat clean A330, friendly crew & food + beverages to brag (you pay outrageous prices on 'leaner-meaner' airlines if at all available). Loved the whole experience. Flying is not only getting from A to B & Delta has realized it. Looking forward to my next Delta flight!"
Pros: "One crew member, young dark haired woman, was particularly accommodating. Male attendant was firm and funny."
Cons: "Typical cramped plane, too many planes going out of same gate are simultaneously"
Pros: "Friendly crew with modern plane"
Cons: "Why am I paying for first class for just snacks I can buy in an airport shop?"
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "Great polite and personable crew. Quality food snacks that accompany the beverage."
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable or spacious. And the get your seat at the gate process is a little unclear"
Pros: "Food available was good."
Cons: "Very tight space- could not reach floor when person in front of me moved seat into recline position. Could not get out of seat to go to bathroom when my seat mates were sleeping. Tough to load- tight spaces."
Pros: "Empty seat next to me and actually got to stow my bag overhead. Good entertainment options. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Wi-Fi not functioning for second flight in a row. No food available for purchase, not even snack boxes. Best I could get was three bags of almonds."
Cons: "The fact that booking with kayak wouldn't let me pick my seats and traveling with 2 kids under 4 it made it very stressful trying to figure out how we could sit together or even the same end of the plane."
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Cons: "The tsa is worthless"
Pros: "aircraft is very clean. faster than imaged. the most impressed thing is it has a variety of entertainment programs."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long, there was a lot of people. It was kinda a mess. The sit assignment for people who didn't have sit assign was slow."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Pros: "Crew was amazing with my baby. Overall a very good flight."
Pros: "Wine and food on flight, nice crew"
Cons: "The people at the ytz airport missed our boarding call and then had to tell us in person to board and our flight was late."
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "For a quick hop boston to toronto it was ideal"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats are comfortable. The waiting time is horrible...they are always late!"
Cons: "I like landing at Billy Bishop, it is very convenient and not too crowed but lately the common lounge has gotten so crowed that you can only seat on the floor. The flights are usually 2 hrs delayed sometimes 3 or 4 hrs delayed! so never plan on having a connecting flight on the other side of your tr"
Cons: "Horrible customer service. One plane was not fit to fly so delayed 30 minutes to get another ready, then after flying 30 minutes, had to return to airport because the plane had mechanical issues. Then after an hour being held without bathrooms at gate outside lounge, we flew and landed 4 hours late."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Also enjoyed the legroom."
Pros: "Porter is a terrible airline. I was not able to change flights due to a schedule conflict with or without fees. I booked another flight through a different carrier. I will never fly Porter Airlines again. Their customer service is unbelievably poor."
Cons: "We could have left on time & we’re Not being informed as to when we’ll be going. Your web site isn’t giving me any info about the connection I’m missing with porter too."
Pros: "Porter airlines is efficient and the customer service is the best I have experienced."
Cons: "I miss the free amenities that they used to offer at the Billy Bishop airport, but the newly renovated airport is nice!"
Pros: "Good airline for going. Out of the country and direct flight from Boston"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The beverages that was served"
Pros: "Solid and professional connecting flight."
Cons: "Paid $95 in baggage fees Too many hidden fees They made me pay for carry on Will never travel with Porter Airlines again"
Pros: "Leg room is adequate Seating at the gate is comfortable"
Cons: "I was shocked that my ticket didn’t allow carry on bags and I ended up having to pay 115$ for 2 Carry on bags. The person on check in counter was unpleasant and uncooperative which didn’t help. Very unfortunate situation."
Cons: "Justfly.com is awful and I wish kayak would stop sending customers to it. I will no longer use kayak because this is the second time my ticket has ended up being purchased through justfly."
Pros: "1) Snacks and beverage at Toronto airport 2) Very clean and comfortable inside the aircraft"
Cons: "1) I wasn’t allowed to check in online because I’m not an American or Canadian citizen. Never heard of that before on any other airline. 2) Flight delays too often and the notification is sent just an hour before (by then we’ve already checked in!)"
Pros: "Significant delays"
Cons: "5 hours delay for 1.5 hour flight"
Cons: "Everything - outbound flight was 5+ hrs late and would have been stranded at the airport at 1:30 am. Made other arrangements at another airport. Kayak, justfly and Porter would not refund fares. Hours on the phone, put in WMS less hold. Don’t use kayak - didn’t stand behind product or their customer."
Cons: "Weather delays were compounded by Porter's incompetence at plane maintenance (plane was too hot when it finally arrived), crew scheduling (and then crew timed out) and finally boarding, which was a nightmare as attendants sent irate passengers who had been waiting in an overcrowded lounge for hours back and forth between podium and counter unnecessarily while ignoring protests and the fact that contradictory directions were being given. As a result, I missed my flight to a critical business event - this could have been avoided if Porter was prepared for bad weather on the East Coast (a fairly frequent occurrence) and had good contingency plans in place and customer service reps who actually knew what they were doing and how to respond to changing circumstances and customer frustration."
Cons: "Weather, plane and crew delays. Poor communication."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful with the situation and delay"
Cons: "The seats feel old and have a lot of wear in them. The plane does not seem clean. They joke about the fact that the delays happen often and they update delays very slowly."
Pros: "Nice snacks and espresso in lounge in Toronto"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours due to heat and not good communication to passengers about flight status - plane was tiny. Landing was bumpy. also lounge in Toronto was over crowded"
Cons: "After paying for bag check & being at the airport 3 hours early, the aIn-line was over weight so they removed my bag to the next flight, rather than the gate checked bags! They promised me the bags would be delivered right away, then after I checked, lied to me that they had been picked up by the delivery service."
Cons: "Every flight was delayed at least 30 minutes and the boarding and deplannaning process was close to a third-world country airline. Terrible."
Pros: "flight crew members were polite and helpful; the little freebies are a nice touch (water, cookies, etc.);"
Cons: "navigating porter's boarding process is somewhat difficult for people new to YTZ... the lounge where porter warehouses its passengers is overcrowded given the traffic and it's hard to know where / when to proceed to board. One unfortunate feature of low cost airlines across the continents seems to be the need to have read an instructional manual on how they *do things* prior to leaving for the airport ..."
Cons: "30 minute delay. No notice"
Pros: "Awesome crew and in flight communication and beverages"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "The service is very good. In flight snacks and drinks are complimentary."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Bishop airport in Toronto is great. Comfy, small, and super close to downtown - I walked to the airport!"
Pros: "Arriving and calling someone to help me with the wheelchair was good. The women were so friendly and helpful. But when you're "stuck" in a chair and I arrived early, it would be nice for someone to check to see if you had to go the washroom. And I had to flag someone down to get me to the aircraft. No one came by and offered. But overall fantastic experience. I would fly porter again."
Cons: "Wish their was more food on the flight. Even though it was a short one."
Pros: "Great service. Efficient."
Pros: "Thankfully I fell asleep a few minutes after take off."
Cons: "Crew was trash talking people as they were passing by during boarding. "I'm going to go check on some of these rows, given how this flight boarded, I'm not hopeful we'll get going soon." Lots of muttering under breath and eye rolling."
Pros: "Once they were up and running, Porter was a great airline. Flight was short so i didn't expect anything fancy on the food menu anyway"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 5 times. Not a great first experience. Had an eerie likeliness of Spirit, which we all know is just not a real airline. not sure if I would fly again if that is the general perception of Porter airlines. I could care less about comfort as long as I get to where I am going on time, which I did not."
Pros: "Got a seat up front didn't have to walk much. after forgetting to pre-boarding they did a good job of getting me on board."
Cons: "Flight was very late. I was in a wheelchair and should have been pre-boarded. Had to wait a long time getting thru immigration."
Pros: "Free espresso in waiting area"
Cons: "Flight delay. Hot plane. Small overhead bins. Dirty plane."
Pros: "My past 4 Porter flights over a few months have had at least 40 minutes of delays. They all also had the annoying pattern of announcing that the delay would be extended a few times, then saying no more delays, then not boarding until after the newest departure time while claiming no more delays. Toronto airport is cute but wifi is pretty bad and hasn't worked at all a few times. Recently gate area has been ridiculously overcrowded, people sitting all over the floor. Free food/drinks is nice but still very limited options and unsurprisingly people make a big mess of the free food area. Overall I prefer a large clean airports where wifi always works well and you can always find a seat for the 30+ minutes you wait for your flight."
Cons: "Wifi Crowded gate Delays Bad communication/dishonesty about delays"
Pros: "Easy and smooth boarding , considerate pleasent service , Nice snacks No entertainment on short 1:40 hour flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "-quick connection and lounge -having real glass to drink out of on the flight is a real treat"
Cons: "HATED having to take a bus from the plane to the terminal. I had to pee really bad and it took forever. I'm sure there was a reason but it wasn't clear to me, and I was super uncomfortable and unhappy. But I'm not blaming Porter Airlines for that either."
Pros: "Small airport. Easy to find everything. Ferry ride fun. Staff did not seem happy to be at work nor did they smile or acknowledge me. I asked 2 staff questions and was barked at: red line! And was told to get into a line that was non existent outside of security."
Cons: "I asked if I was supposed to leave my luggage in the rack that was just outside of the plane because I saw that's what everyone was doing. I was told it was my choice but that if it didn't fit in the overhead I would have to come back out and put it on the rack. I was very dismayed when I got off the plane to see that I had to wait in the hallway for quite a while until my luggage appeared. It was a real traffic jam of people. I really wish I had put my luggage in the overhead. Also, minutes before boarding we were told to go and verify our passports. It was quite a rush to run to the other end of the room, wait in line and then get to the boarding gate. I barely made it back in time even though I had been waiting there for nearly an hour ."
Pros: "Liked the fact that I flew out of Toronto Islands airport, was fast and easy with complimentary snacks while waiting at the gate. I had an early morning flight and so beat the traffic, as I'm sure that picks up later in the day. Online checkin was easy and simple. I did not have any check-in luggage, only carry-on, suspect that also made it easier. The Porter airlines support call center was very helpful and friendly There were complimentary coffee and snacks at the gate... was a really nice feeling. Liked the waiting area at the gates, comfortable seating. Plane was on time. No issues"
Cons: "I had an early morning flight, so traffic was very light, but suspect that later in the day. So taking a later flight on Porter may be problematic as getting to the airport would be more difficult. The language in the email ticket confirmation made me a little concerned, as it mentioned having to re-confirm the booking and being at the airport at least 3 hours ahead even though the flight time was only 1:05 hours etc. But after calling in to the support center, the concerns were cleared up."
Pros: "Love the ease of flying into Billy Bishop, the staff, the complimentary snacks at the airport lounge. All great!"
Cons: "40 minute delayed boarding. No big deal though"
Pros: "Extremely delayed flight for no apparent reason with very little communication"
Cons: "Not getting to my destination on time. Missing appointments. Being trapped in the terminal with a guy in a donald trump hat."
Cons: "40 minute flight delay with clear weather conditions"
Pros: "The porter lounge in Toronto offered complimentary snacks, coffee, tea, bottled water, and a few varieties of soda. If you wanted something a bit more there was a mini food cafe to supplement what wasn't offered in the complimentary area. Free wifi, and ample seating made the wait for a flight bearable."
Cons: "Although the wifi was free it was limited to non streaming sites. No Netflix while you wait."
Had to wait over an hour before finding a gate
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Ground staff at Montreal were far from helpful. They kept saying “Call customer service.” and never offered any help/assistance for rebooking and finding a hotel room."
Cons: "Held on the plane for 3 hours while waiting to de-ice"
Pros: "Short of the entertainment system incident, the service was pleasant. It was nice to NOT be on a full flight and have both seats to myself."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working, and crew was fairly nonchalant about it. In the past they at least apologized and on the better end gave out drink vouchers. Not this time."
Pros: "Plane was nice, clean, good entertainment options, departed almost on time, arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding process - seat upgrades should come with boarding zone upgrades. Paying extra for a seat and then boarding in last zone makes no sense to me."
Pros: "Crew and staff were pleasant"
Cons: "Consistently the longest shortest flight in Canada"
Pros: "Tried so hard to be friendly & cheerful to flight attendants & they were pretty humorless."
Pros: "The connecting flight was with air Canada. In general the flight was fine. Landed on a Saturday afternoon."
Cons: "What was not fine was the horror at the other end when air Canada lost my bag (which had my suit and prescriptions) and couldn't tell me where it was or when it would be delivered for over two days of calling between their service centre and one the ground people at Boston. The call centre was in India, no one in Boston would tell them what was going on. It should not take three days to sort, when the bag had actually been sent on the next flight (on Saturday evening) after the one I took. Fortunately, was able to borrow BP medication from a relative and ultimately had to spend money to buy new suit and clothes before bag finally appeared because I had business meetings for which I needed appropriate attire. Every other airline I gave flown where my bag was delayed was always delivered in 24 hours. This was not Brussels airlines fault, it was the fault of air Canada."
Pros: "The flight from Toronto to Boston is extremely short, about an hour. I don’t feel as though I can rate the food since I didn’t buy any, it just doesn’t give me an option to not rate it. It was a completely full flight. It was as comfortable as can be. It’s a smaller plane so you feel everything but the captains were good flyers."
Cons: "I’m not sure if this is something I can really complain about but I wish the flight attendants would’ve spoken a bit lower. For a plane where half of the people there had missed their connecting flight and were put on a 6:30 am flight, I don’t think we wanted to hear about their detailed personal lives."
Pros: "That we eventually got a flight home."
Cons: "Being stuck in Boston and Ottawa for 2 extra days and adding around $1200 on to our trip in hotels alone (I was travelling with 4 kids on a school trip and my wife). Additionally, we didn’t find out the flights were cancelled until we arrived at the airport. Apparently, they had been cancelled 2 hours before but there was no notification. Air Canada offered no help whatsoever and the guy at the “service” desk in Boston literally said there was nothing he could do to help. Not even find a new flight. Spent 90 minutes on the phone trying to re-book, plus re-booking hotel along the way."
Cons: "Everything was seamless and i have no complaints. My return flight was cancelled amd i was automatically put on a different flight, and instead of waiting more than 2 hours from boston to get to canada, i was put on an earlier flight for which i am thankful for. However we couldnt take off as delta was clogging up the way to the runaway so ended up waitimg an hour to taje off which was ridiculous. Hope delta hires more ground crew so that others arent inconvenienced in the future."
Pros: "Boarding, service, entertainment we're all good."
Cons: "Early morning flights from Toronto to Boston are a bit bumpy usually. Pilots do their best to maneuver around those."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Immigration was painfully slow and why getting checked again when just coming from another plane? wait time for luggage far too long seems an airport issue same movies"
Pros: "I flew through Vancouver from Boston on my way to Brisbane, Australia and back. I was nervous at first because of the 2 hour connection windows. This might be a testament to Vancouver Airport more than Air Canada, but the flight home after an initial 14 hour flight was pain free. Boarding was fast (the flight wasn't full) and we ended up pulling away from the terminal early. I slept most of the flight so I can't really comment on food. The entertainment was the same as when i left for Australia, which was ok. It had a decent variety to select from."
Cons: "Still waiting to try to get on a flight via the standby option, and even that flight keeps getting delayed and the gate was changed. The whole trip has been a clusterf***."
Cons: "First it was delayed because of the aircraft, then it was delayed some more because of the bags on the plane but no passengers - bag owners . Then it was delayed because the ramp crew could not be found to remove the bags. Then it was delayed because of the weather ..."
Pros: "Clearing immigration in Vancouver is very convenient"
Cons: "Food choices are limited and expensive."
Pros: "Their staff is extremely friendly and helpful, but they can only do what is within corporate rules to help you. Their corporate policies are NOT GOOD!"
Cons: "Flying Air Canada is horrible! They nickel & dime you to the point of tears. They charged me $15 per leg to make advanced seat assignments ($60 total) then changed my flights and put me in middle seats on two legs without asking me - I didn't find out until I was ready to board and they called my name to come to the gate desk! They also charge $33+ US to check one bag. If you go over the 50 lb weight limit they charge $100. By the time you add it all up, I could have flown on Delta through the US for less. Trying to get my seat selection fees reimbursed was very difficult; At the airport, they told me to go online and ask for a refund; Online, I couldn't find the way to get to the refund link; Called Customer service again, who gave me an 800# to call for a refund; the person on the 800 # told me I had to request it online but walked me through it to find the refund link; I filled in the online request and was told by automatic reply that Air Canada would investigate it and get back to me within 3-4 weeks. Ugh! No more Air Canada for me!"
Cons: "We miss the opportunity to order an appetizer on the flight; a fun part of any travel experience."
Pros: "Vegan options for snacks were given which was great. Courteous staff were attentive and polite."
Cons: "It's a basic flight, not much to complain about. My standards are generally low."
Pros: "Buult-in entertainment system, good selection of programs to watch, ok customer service."
Cons: "Two and a half hour delay on an 1:20 flight. I fly with Air Canada often, and delays are constant, especially on the evening flights. WestJet, which services the same route, doesdoesn't have this problem."
Cons: "Many of us were refused boarding on the connecting flight. They gave away our seats. I arrived at the transvfer counter50 minutes prior to the flight. I was first. Gave excuse that bag must go with me. Customs confirmed that this is AC not customs. To add insult, they flight to Montreal was late, the flight to Boston was late, and finally my bag NEVER was on either flight so there excuse was an out right lie. I missed half the weekend home in over a month. AC doesn't value my time and I don't value their service. Every time I go back to this airline I realized why I left. Going to Asia; don't get suckered into using this route. BTW a friend on PVG-YUL-BOS never made it as well. AC still using a CRJ200 that can't land in weather. NOT A BUSINESS CLASS EXPERIENCE."
Cons: "There was a major winter storm on the way, and the flight should have been canceled like every other flight to Boston was. Long story short, we couldn't land in Boston due to the storm. So we flew not to Boston, but to Quebec City. They would not let us off the airplane. Eventually we flew back to Montreal where we started. More than 7 hours on a plane with no food, and they only offered us water. The flight should have been cancelled in the first place. That would have been a lot less stressful to deal with."
Pros: "It was excellent. Though due to snowfall, flight took off late due to de-icing but taking safety precautions is a best practice."
Pros: "This was my first time in Canada never been there before I had a great time until that one moment I had to deal with workers from air Canada except one agent at the ticketing desk....I had checked in online the day before however I had some card issues because they got shut down by my bank and due to the holiday in America I was unable to call my Bank prior to the airport....got to the airport and tried to explain that all I wanted to do was pay for my bag with cash ...but no one took the time out to listen each time i tried explaining myself I was send to a different location to join another line ....by the time I got to someone who was willing to listen my flight was closed ..her name was Aurora and gave me nothing but attitude when I explained my story......anyways finally got to ticketing and a met the only agent that day who exercise some level of customer service that day...if only I could remember her name ...sigh she went the extra mile because at this point I was frustrated and unsure if I would make it out of the country a sane person due to the amount of chaos I experienced prior. She got LISTENED .....SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN...got me on a new flight and went above an beyond to assist me that morning I was on the verge of a breakdown at that point all other staff member was very disgusting not only to my self but the other individuals who had mishaps that morning."
Pros: "long delay with no explanation, surly staff, poor communication"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but only for an hour"
Pros: "Short flight - no issues"
Pros: "Nothing in particular stood out in Montreal or the flight to Boston, as better than average...meh"
Cons: "Our Swiss crew told us over the loudspeaker several times that "even if connecting we still need to get our luggage" which turned out to be false as our luggage was transferred to the Boston bound plane automatically... We were ushered out as a group to a connection security check which required electronic kiosks to be used for scanning our passports photos and fingerprints... They fraught with malfunctions then after waiting in line for s while we did the whole check all over again with s human security agent in s booth... There were only 2 security agents in the booths as well but there really needed to be several more to keep the line moving quicker... After security we walk directly out to departures but no mention of baggage claim, which was fine had we not been misinformed by Swiss initially... We ended up inquiring several times with SirCsnsda staff until it was clear Swiss had misinformed us."
Cons: "I did not take it."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, free WiFi on board, movies to watch, stewards and stewardesses on board were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "I was originally flying WestJet, and the 7:05 AM flight I booked was cancelled. I hopped online and booked the 8:10 AM flight via Air Canada back to Boston. First, the flight was oversold, so only AFTER I was able to check my bag did I learn that I was flying stand-by. Completely nerve wracking. If I had known in advance I would have booked with another airline. I was able to get on the flight thanks to some volunteers who gave up their seats on the 8:10 AM flight for the next flight out (10:10 AM) in return for some monetary compensation. I arrived in Boston, and after waiting for 45 minutes, I learned my bag was put on the 10:10 AM flight rather than the 10:10 AM flight, but only after dealing with a snappy and disrespectful check-in attendant that seemed to not believe me that my bags indeed did not arrive. The office for baggage services for Air Canada was vacant and locked next to the carousel. Myself and a couple of other travelers, upon getting to the check-in counter and explaining the situation mistakenly lumped us all together and said "okay so you're all traveling together and your bags need to go the same place". Me: "No, that's incorrect, we are not related or traveling together, we just all have the same issue--none of our bags have arrived". Other Air Canada representative, who up to this point had not been involved in the exchange: "She didn't ask you if you were related, she asked you if your bags were lost" and then proceeded to roll her eyes and walk away from the counter. I suppose she misinterpreted my concern for rudeness and felt the need to put me in my place. Granted, my early morning flight cancellation and the stress associated with flying standby had nothing to do with them, but the attitude I was given as a concerned traveler whose bag was potentially lost was completely unwarranted. Compounded with the frustration of the entire morning I cannot describe how infuriating this exchange added up to being. I was told my bag would be delivered to my home by 4 PM that day. No bag. Got a phone call at 7 PM - they'd be there in the next hour. 10:00 PM and going to bed: No bag. I gave up and prepared to make a claim in the morning. 8:30 AM Sunday morning - my bag is sitting on my front porch wrapped in a trash bag. What a fiasco."
Cons: "Flight crew not helpful. Despite empty space in first class overheads, would not allow coach passenger to put anything there."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. They lost my baggage. TV in my seat didn't work and they didn't do anything about it."
Pros: "Spacious flight Cozy environment Comfortable sitting"
Pros: "-Staff offered free things like headphones and 15 minutes of wifi access to compensate for multiple delays -Cheap! -I was rescheduled to this flight after my previous flight was delayed and prevented me from taking my original flight back, but I was moved up to boarding zone 3 in return"
Cons: "-Significant delay prevented me from checking in to my room, which was highly inconvenient. Fortunately I had a friend who was willing to have me, but if not (and because the nearby hotels are filled up due to the beginning of freshman orientation at my college), I would have had nowhere to stay after 13+ hours of flying and exhaustion. This alone significantly hurt the experience."
Pros: "Everything excep boarding on return flight."
Cons: "Delay on return & boarding was really slow! Not sure if it was the computers or attendants."
Cons: "Our inbound flight was two hours late. When connecting through Toronto, they lied to us. They said that the outbound connection was on time, that we'd likely missed it. Then, after standing through their requisite customer service line with only one open desk for two full flights, we were told to sprint through customs. We arrived, breathless to find the connection was delayed. We were told that they don't post the delayed connections for fear that passengers won't run or that U.S. customs will close. Uncommunicative and untruthful, their service is atrocious."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly. They were dealing with a lot of crabby people due to a 4 hour weather delay. They handled it, some better than others."
Cons: "I checked my bag. It got soaked. I am talking drenched like dumped in a lake and left there for the 4 hours we were delayed in Toronto. When we contacted air canada the luggage complaint rep told us to complete an online claim. We haven't heard a peep out of Air Canada in a week. Unacceptable Air Canada. You must would at least acknowledge that something was done wrong by a baggage crew even if they aren't on your payroll and on an airports."
Cons: "Absolute joke of an airline with zero customer service. I would never travel with them again and would recommend anyone else not too."
Pros: "I liked waiting to fly until weather was good."
Cons: "I disliked the long delay, no time for the drink cart."
Pros: "Crew was efficient, and the plane was on time."
Cons: "The seating and luggage storage was a bit cramped."
Cons: "After waiting 30 minutes after our boarding time, I got an email on my phone saying the gate had changed. No one at the current gate knew anything about it and I went to ask but no one could be found. I asked a man sitting behind the gate, who happened to be the pilot, and he also knew nothing about it. Needless to say, the gate changed and absolutely nobody was told about it. 2 hours later, our flight finally took off, and I was thanked by the pilot for getting us to the right gate... At least he provided a little humor to the situation! Plane also wasn't cleaned, pretzels and trash all over the floor."
Pros: "This was the smoothest flight I've ever had. Great pilot."
Cons: "It was a bit delayed."
Pros: "It was a short flight but smooth and on time."
Cons: "Crew stopped severing prematurely. He said we were about to land and failed to serve my row and the one behind me. In the end we still had 30 minutes before we started the initial descent. When the person behind me spoke to him about it the steward was rude to him."
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience , the whole travel"
Pros: "Great flight, entertainment system, flight staff made me feel at home"
Pros: "I enjoy flying and being in the air at high altitude in any air line. Away from everyone else and with a new family who are flying with me."
Cons: "The charge per bag is ridiculous. It should be included as part of fare paid. Understood another bag charge as a separate fee."
Pros: "Thoughtful crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seat."
Pros: "Great, friendly crew and excellent customer service from flight attendants."
Pros: "Wheel chair service"
Cons: "A/C outlets and bathroom sink did not work"
Cons: "As my mom explained to me, there was a time in the 1960's when flying was a special experience. The flight attendants were proud to do what they did, and treated people with kindness and civility. That is all gone now. It is an ice cold experience. I feel like cattle."
Pros: "Boarding was slow because the flight was sold out."
Cons: "Slow service. Poor loading and unloading."
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."
Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."
Pros: "That I got home."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "It appears united is unable to fly their planes on times, in particular on the East Coast. We were delayed by 90min on each legs"
Cons: "After we board the plane, we were forced to sit on the tarmac at LAX for 2 hours. I missed the Ferry to Provincetown and it cost me an extra night of hotel in Boston. The food choices were very limited, and the seats are just not comfortable at all!"
Pros: "It was quick and on time."
Pros: "Nice service, let us use the bathroom in business class, gave me a free glass of wine."
Cons: "Late departure by 1.5 hours sucks!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew, seats were newer and a bit more comfortable than my other United flight."
Cons: "Everything else, delays on top of understandable weather delays, slow boarding, poor snack and drink options,"
Cons: "Still have not left."
Cons: "UA lost 4/4 ski bags through our connecting flight in chicago - which resulted in us having to stay at baggage claim until 1:30am EST. We needed our ski's to ski the day we landed - and had major headaches due to this issue."
Pros: "The plane was nice and in good shape. They had beverage service for a very quick flight which is nice. Can't rate food or entertainment because only hour or so flight."
Cons: "It was freezing in the plane and I'm never cold. When I asked for a blanket they had none!!! They had just announced whatever they can do to make your flight more comfortable ask them. Not true, just words. Disappointed after the great treatment after flying ANA."
Pros: "Excellent crew and snacks, we were on time, actually arrived early in Boston."
Cons: "The strong exhaust fumes while in the gate was really uncomfortable. It finally cleared once under way but 10 minutes of breathing it was not pleasant."
Cons: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Cons: "Flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice. I picked one of the seats at the end so plenty leg room."
Cons: "OK, United, I understand and fully support "no more seat monitor" policy to reduce costs (even though it seems very backward); however, there's one problem--if you still want to enjoy onboard entertainments, you need to download the United application above 10,000 feet where you can never find your 4G connection. Oh wait, but there's still Wi-Fi service, right? Sure, if you are willing to pay $17 just to download application!! United, I understand how you want to make little money out of a customer's pocket, but this is not how you should do it. You should at least allow internet connection before departure or let the customer aware they need to download application beforehand."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in the plane. There was confusion as they had passengers going both ways in the aisle .. this forced several ppl to stand in the aisle a long time. One of the air hostess had a major attitude. For example one passenger who was stuck in the middle of other passengers asked her politely if she could help him put the carry on in an overhead bin near her .. and she responded "I cant help you, you need to put it up yourself sir". Not something one expects. She was also terse with passengers, ordering them in an annoyed tone."
Pros: "I didnt know I could only bring one item on board that had to be checked UNDERNEATH the seat in front of me. I didnt have the "right" ticket for over head storage. I had to buy a box for $15 to put my purse in and THEN pay $35 to check my PURSE in! I couldnt check in early. I had to go to the gate to get a seat assignment and then even though my assigned seat was in the 10th row, I then had to line up in groups like Southwest and I guess my punishment for sitting in economy was to wait to board last. I felt like third class boarder on the Titanic. United has become less than a Greyhound bus. They will NEVER be my first choice again! It was HORRIFIC I will go to ANY other airlines before them. P.S. the service at the Houston counter were rude and awful except for Ms. Edwards"
Pros: "i hated the expirience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Cons: "i hated the experience i would request a refund they charged me 250 $ for a 1 hour flight and got me there after 5 hours"
Cons: "Wouldn't let me bring my bag even though there was plenty of space."
Pros: "It was great arriving 20 min early, but no wifi!"
Pros: "United doesn't care about you or any of their customers. Charged me extra fees for luggage then lost my stuff and tell me to write your home office. No thanks but I will let people know how little you care and how poorly you treat your customers. Sorry I flew United!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, easy boarding. They got me where I needed to go, and on time!"
Cons: "I'm disappointed in their in-flight entertainment system. Download the app and check out all of the amazing options they have, then try to use it & good luck. It took me 5 hours to watch 20 min of the movie I chose. It just kept cutting out, then would say entertainment service isn't offered, etc. Why are airlines going away from personal TVs & instead having you bring your own device which may or may not work with the service up there? There was also NO room. I'm not a big person, but I didn't even have space to put my bad under the seat in front of me & sit comfortably. I flew back on JetBlue with the same amount of stuff and had ample room. It was interesting to see the difference."
Cons: "Airline staff was misleading. When we left Costa Rica hours late and all missed our connections, the staff in San Jose assured us we would be compensated and put up in hotels. This was not the case, and I ended up spending over 30 hours sitting in airports to get from San Jose to Boston, including an entire night in the Houston airport."
Pros: "Free TV since we were 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "4 delays in 1 day on 2 flights. 2 gate changes with no relay of info and to top it all off my wife and i were reassigned to separate seats at the last minute by the airline and very rudely told to deal with it and to calm down when I simply asked why. We were appalled and embarrassed in front of many others in the gate boarding area. The gate agent in Houston has no place in customer service and was on some kind of a power trip. This surprised me with recent events. We are done with United now for many reasons"
Pros: "Pilot communication was great"
Cons: "Gate and customer service agents are not helpful and not on the same page."
Pros: "I was wirried about making the connection. Enddd up with an hour which was ample."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, inefficient food service and pricey, and entertainment is a rip off."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, decent drink options"
Cons: "Boarded late. There were no seats at the gate so everyone had to just stand around waiting to board. No announcement or apology. Took 25 minutes after we landed for the first bag to come down the chute at baggage claim. My first class dining options were chips, pretzels, or a banana. Short flight but still."
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Flight was completely full so I was stuck in a middle seat. The seat felt small and cramped, so was unable to sleep at all on the overnight flight. There was no in-seat entertainment (although I could have watched stuff on my phone, if I had previously installed the united app, and had sufficient battery)."
Cons: "Took way too long to determine that a new plane was needed, took way too long to get the plane ready, and reloaded and in the air. Could have driven and been half way there from Newark to Boston in the time all this took. Not ok, with not even an apology or any type of compensation for leaving 3 hours late."
Cons: "The fact that I have to pay extra for food or any form of entertainment is appalling compared to other airlines. $20 for WIFI? That's a joke."
Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and pilots did great despite turbulence"
Cons: "Didn't like the snack mix and too cheap to pay for WiFi"
Pros: "At least there was room to sprawl out and rest."
Cons: "We boarded our plane and during preflight check on the runway the captain learned there was mechanical error (in the right engine fuel something). The issue could not be solved and we had to change planes. On the second plane, the captain shared with travelers that "and two loose wires were found, so it's good we caught that and changed planes". What the heck? Shouldn't basic functions be checked before a plane is boarded? What was supposed to be a 1030 red eye, turned out to be a 1 AM bloodshot eye."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing, great flight."
Cons: "The lack of breakfast options. Lack of room."
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
