Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "In general, not good enough for an overnight flight. Our flight was late, we missed our connections which is the primary reason I am complaining"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was required to gate check a bag, previously okay to bring on board, and it was lost upon arrival."
Pros: "Free kids meal was nice. Good selection of kids shows."
Cons: "Seating was not as expected due to plane change. Screens did not work on first leg, and screen controlled seat recline & lights."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "The price was good, the crew was friendly, and the on-line check in process was smooth."
Cons: "Non-functional entertainment consoles..so we could not watch anything, use our reading lights, adjust the temp, or summon staff if we needed to. With a bar in the middle of my foot space, there was no space under my seat for my personal item; No food on an international flight also disappointing."
Cons: "We had a different plane with narrow seats - ok for me but not the person beside me. Nothing but tea or coffee - all food and beverage had to be purchased. My experience. Uncomfortable and hungry."
Pros: "Fly Saga business.... exceptional food and service."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Comfort in seating was lacking, also having the luggage sitting out in the rain for 20 minutes was not ideal."
Pros: "Nice business class seats, comfortable, quiet"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been larger"
Cons: "Definitely not a comfortable flight. And being that it’s an international flight, some free snacks would have been nice."
Pros: "I like that the flight was very comfortable & there was lots of options for entertainment!"
Cons: "Honestly it was probably the best flight I have ever taken!"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly, we had the seats behind first class so we had a ton of legroom. I would definitely fly Iceland air."
Cons: "We had a 5 hour flight and they didnt serve snacks of food. The flight didnt include bags. 2 bags cost $160"
Pros: "Everything Nothing"
Cons: "Very limited food choice."
Pros: "Treated well, staff were kind, met some great people going to Iceland as well"
Cons: "Of course everyone would always love a bit more space - but we understand why we can’t :)"
Cons: "When I booked this flight last March the booking info said 1 free bag. When we got to the airport we were told that we had to pay $94 Can per bag because we had Economy Light class. We had the same issue returning but the cost was $55 US. On top of that Iceland Air changed planes and bumped us from row 10 to 41 - the last row. Bizarrely there is no customer service desk at the Reykjavik Airport - they just give you a little card with the website for customer service. I don't understand how any airline does this! BTW, they blame the third party for the issues! That is you!!!"
Cons: "No food goingacross"
Pros: "We didn't crash so that's a bonus."
Cons: "Well first off it was a connector flight from Toronto to Reykjavik to Oslo to Tromso, Norway. The first leg was delayed and then they lost my baggage, which happens, I get it. But then due to the delayed flight and lost baggage I missed my connection to Tromso. Then apparently neither airline can do anything to help me so I lose my entire flight cost because I booked through a third party. So I had to rebook a new flight at a premium cost just to get where I needed to go or risk losing my whole vacation. On top of that the baggage they lost is my backpack...hard to go backpacking across Norway with no backpack. Then they ship the backpack to the wrong airport, incorrectly wrote down my wrong cell number so they couldn't even call me...one cluster f*ck after another."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Crew was great"
Cons: "No games o the entertainment system"
Pros: "Efficient short connection in Reykjavik. Also the luggage made it to the next flight."
Cons: "The bag check in process was unorganized. The bag belt was not working and out bags were left outside of the counter. They were not scanned in and did not make the flight even though we arrived at the airport 3 hours before boarding. It is very disappointing to get to Iceland and not have clothing to go explore. We are hopeful the bags will arrive before we leave."
Pros: "I really enjoyed flying with Iceland Air. One bag included for check in with ticket - which can be hard to come by these days. As well, the plane was brand new, leather seats and entertainment system. There was water and a blanket waiting for you at your seat once you boarded. They were very efficient and the crew made the trip a pleasant journey. Would highly recommend!"
Cons: "My boarding pass had me in row 9, at boarding they pushed me back to row 34, the last row on the plane. And the flight attendant was a little heavy, couldn't walk passed without bumping me. So much for sleeping."
Pros: "Having more leg room. Smaller plane. Short transit time."
Cons: "Being charged for a $10 meal after paying $100s for a ticket"
Pros: "Boarding was good and crew were pleasant"
Cons: "All bathrooms were out on the plane for the final 2 hours. You have to pay for any food you would like."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment was excellent. We are both tall and we offered longer legroom seats at checking! Only good for purchase on board so we are before boarding. We purchased a light snack on the second leg of the trip. It hit the spot. Blankets and pillows were provided."
Cons: "It was all good!"
Cons: "How can an international flight not have a single snack or beverage offered without a fee?"
Pros: "This airline has so much going for it!... Pleasant staff, nice touches for overnight flight (bottled water as we entered the plane, pillow, blanket), plenty of legroom, TVs in the seat backs that work perfectly! What a treat!"
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and worked efficiently.."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Would have been nice to have a free meal. Flight arrived late at night with most food options closed"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. There were no surprises."
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean aircraft. Was very pleasantly surprised at how organized, clean, and neat things were. Will definitely be flying Icelandair again and will recommend to others. Also planning a trip to Iceland because it was just that great!"
Cons: "Terminal seating was limited but I believe they are renovating or under construction to address this issue. Was not that big of a deal to me or my boyfriend because we had been sitting for hours anyway. We just made ourselves comfortable on the floor."
Pros: "Friendly crew, nice aircraft, enjoyable entertainment options. Overall a nice experience."
Cons: "Food was only available by purchase."
Pros: "Very easy and phenomenal time."
Pros: "Easy booking, checkin and boarding process. Overall a smooth experience."
Cons: "The seats were not of the typical comfort level that I have had on other international flights. It felt more like a longer-than-usual domestic flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew Entertainment system at each seat Good price"
Pros: "Entertainment. Very comfortable leg room. Professional and friendly crew. I liked the free bottle of water when boarding."
Cons: "Everybody boards at once. Just need to get first in line. No charge for checked bags."
Cons: "They should at least give some snake"
Pros: "My original seat was next to a woman with a baby so the flight crew asked if I would like to change to another seat so the mom could spread out with the baby."
Cons: "The plane was 30 minutes late taking off which caused me to have to run a long ways to be able to catch my connecting flight. I am 73 years old and this was not pleasant to say the least. Would like the airline to schedule more than 45 minutes to change planes in case the first flight takes off later than scheduled."
Pros: "I mostly slept on my way out to Keflavik, but stayed up on the way back to Boston. Boarding was better in Boston; they called for rows there. There's a USB port at the seats, making phone charging easy, and there was a good entertainment selection (I watched an 80's classic and a documentary on Icelandic foxes!). The cabin crew was very nice, all smiles, and came by frequently. My negative section will say that my luggage was lost, but they had it delivered back to my hotel about twelve hours later (that same night!), so it didn't affect my trip at all."
Cons: "Boarding at KEF was just a mass of people boarding the plane at once, making the cabin become a Lord of the Flies scenario with people blocking rows to get luggage in the overhead. My luggage was left behind in Boston (I've never lost luggage before!), but they were very helpful at the baggage counter. The seats recline quite a bit which I'm putting under negative because it's ludicrous that seats recline at all in airplanes. We're already packed in there so tight you can barely breath and people think it's fine to just take up more of your limited space."
Pros: "It was a treat to have a whole row of seats to myself from London to Reykjavik. Would have been nicer to have that space from Reykjavik to Denver, but I know that you need to fly full of passengers. The internet connection in the Reykjavik airport was good; better than in LGW."
Cons: "It's a mess at the Reykjavik airport while they are remodeling! Not nearly enough seating is provided for waiting passengers. Having to board and unload outside is also difficult for older passengers especially. It will be good when you no longer have to bus folks from the plane to the airport and back."
Pros: "I needed assistance with a wheel chair, which I had never needed before... How wonderful everyone was..."
Pros: "Crew was so nice"
Cons: "There were very little gluten free options to buy for food"
Cons: "Complete and utter chaos at the boarding process. No effort to board by rows or in any order. People pushing and shoving to get to the front of the line to board first. One single person checking boarding passes/passports at the gate. Horrible experience. Minimal leg room in coach class. Flight attendants did not seem to be happy about being on the flight and provided minimal service without a smile. The temperature on the fight was ridiculously hot - I've never been on a plane where it was so warm in the cabin."
Pros: "on time Stay over option staff friendliness reasonable price bottled water on embarkation"
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable. very basic amenities"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled & no alternative flight was offered. Had to spend $350 more for a last minute flight & lost a day's vacation"
Pros: "Crew, seating, terminal"
Pros: "The crew and comfort were alright. Entertainment allows you to watch tv and movies etc. Flight left on time."
Cons: "The crew was nice, but not overly helpful. Boarding was difficult. They did not list a gate number until 10 minutes til boarding. It was a pretty big airport, and not having a gate number listed is pretty poor, especially if you had tyo wait in the middle of the airport until 10 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "Plane was new and good"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Very old aircraft. Looked extremely run down and many things were broken."
Cons: "No WiFi."
Cons: "Some form of entertainment"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Free food"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The aircraft: too old! No charging ports, entertainment system horrible. The food was not super."
Cons: "Distance between seats on the low side i.e. not much leg room. TV screen again on the small size in comparison with other airlines. Ear phones poor build quality and sound. Plastic cutlery. Small meal trays. No hand wipes with meals. In comparison with other airlines BA is only an average carrier."
Pros: "FYI this was actually an American Airlines flight (AA 104) not BA. Anyway I love those 777-300ER’s, they are huge with great up to date ambient lighting, excellent, outstanding entertainment , and I had the whole row to myself. I often take this flight when flying home from LHR to JFK. 5 stars!"
Cons: "5 stars all around"
Cons: "For a major carrier in Europe we expected more. Be Be prepared to pay for food and even a drink on a domestic flight. Seats tiny barely any leg room. Crew members appeared to be having a bad day not many welcoming smiles. I guess if you had to budget just pay use one of the other carriers"
Pros: "I did not"
Cons: "The seats are not just uncomfortable, they are awful. Worse than Wizzair!"
Cons: "Heathrow is the worst airport when you have a passenger who needs a wheel chair."
Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."
Pros: "Warm welcome, on time and comfortable"
Pros: "Good Crew, Good Flight"
Cons: "better movie/entertainment selections"
Cons: "The breakfast croissant filling was disgusting!"
Pros: "It was wonderful and great!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Lots of movie options. I got a voucher due to the delay."
Cons: "The delay was a bit of a bummer and it would have been nice to be compensated with more than a voucher that couldn't be used in LHR because it was in USD. I also would have liked to been told they were still planning on serving dinner despite the midnight departure; I fell asleep because they turned off the cabin lights and I assumed the meals had shifted, but instead I missed out of my dinner. Lastly, I am quite petite and still struggled with legroom."
Pros: "Nice aircraft! Very modern."
Cons: "The crew could be quite curt at times"
Cons: "There was no food or movie"
Pros: "747s are good stable planes in flight"
Cons: "The greatest problem was dealing with the usual chaos and discomfort of traveling through Heathrow airport. Primitive and time-consuming transportation system between terminals- Had to ride overcrowded buses packed with so many people that your body was pressed against your neighbor. Inadequate number of restrooms and poor signage to find them. Bad selection of restaurants. Then at the terminal, boarding time listed as 10:40, but they did not even announce the boarding gate until 10:40. Then a 10 minute ride on another overcrowded bus to the plane which you had to board by a staircase (and a staircase to the door on a 747 is no small thing!) Although flight was smooth in the air, the pilot landed so "hard" I thought the landing gear must have been damaged!"
Cons: "it is ridiculous that i should have to pay 75 euro for my first bag. additionally, BA doesn't even give you free refreshments anymore!!!! When every other airline does better than BA on these fronts, why would I ever fly with them again?"
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Entertainment need more movies"
Pros: "Flight was on time, check-in easy, personnel friendly. Good experience."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Group of men walked about and talked to each other rather than sitting in their seats."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Cons: "Rude staff at the airport. Short overlay did not have enough time to get our bags and checkin again that was ridiculous to have to check in again!"
Pros: "There was one female stewardess who was extremely kind and helpful"
Cons: "They ran out of food for the back of the plane Bathrooms were FILTHY! Flight delayed by an hour Lost our luggage and then gave us the run-around about how we can get it back, when we would receive it, and did not compensate us for anything; ruined our weekend plans Extremely rude steward who, when we were upset about not having food behaved as if we should be grateful just to be in his company This flight was the exact opposite of what I have come to expect and appreciate about BA... Not sure I would ever endorse flying with them again..."
Pros: "Me and my husband were upgraded from world traveler plus to business class, which we are thankful for"
Cons: "We were unable to order special meal online and were told to contact onboard crew for meals. When we contacted them inflight, they said they don’t have meals!!! And we were left to starve the whole night, while food was served for all around us. The really shocking thing is none of the crew had the courtesy to offer some snacks or bread. These especially when we were seated in business class!"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "Food was poor Service was mechanical non personal"
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Cons: "Flight canceled want able to rebook"
Cons: "As a Kenyan Passport Holder living in Canada on a PR status was denied right to travel to Kenya via LHR transit. WHY ? will you help us with our rights what compensation will help to alleviate the pain"
Pros: "Overall flight better London to Beirut l"
Cons: "Long wait over"
Pros: "Terminal 5"
Cons: "Disgusted that they wanted to charger £11 pp to change seat at check-in 24hrs prior to the flight!"
Cons: "I was told this was a Finair flight and never received an email or phone call that it was changed to American Airlines. We stood at Finair check in line until the idiots there put up signs for Quatar. Typical American Airlines confusion, similar to past experiences."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable at all. Spaces are too tight."
Pros: "Movie selection was great!"
Cons: "Short staffed. No coffee with breakfast! Cream and sugar on tray. Flight from London to Stockholm delayed one hour due to air traffic!"
Pros: "Everything on time. Crew had a smile."
Cons: "USB charger was not working in seat 34f."
Pros: "The BA admitted fault and paid for my hotel since Due to the multiple check points I missed my flight while at the airport."
Cons: "There was no food provided on the flight from Sofia to London. Food was available to purchase but only with a credit card, while I had just cash so I could not buy food on the plane at all. The worst was the transfer between flights-security lines at Heathrow were long, my carry on luggage was checked a couple of times. I got to my gate 20min before takeoff, but the boarding had finished and the gate was closed. I missed my flight. How could BA not figure out a way to get me on that plane? I was just a transit passenger, I will never fly through Heathrow again. Lufthansa is a terrific airline, they always figure it out how to get you on the plane even if you late in transfer."
Pros: "Efficient at boarding gate all electronically monitored, photo recognition boarding a little confusing but help was on hand."
Cons: "The fact that we had to pay for something as basic as tea and coffee!!! Very disappointed in BA, their standards have dropped, not sure if I will continue to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Pros: "Very prompt and good communication from pilot"
Pros: "Great service and experience."
Cons: "The boarding was a little long."
Pros: "Service onboard is always pleasant."
Cons: "Not a fan of British Airways business seats. It feels narrow, crowded (i counted 8 people per row?) and not private. You get much better seats on other airlines without having to pay first prices. Boarding was confusing for people that don't know that Club World means business. And food was bland."
Cons: "Cabin luggage is too big for regional aircraft. Size limits need to be imposed more strictly."
Pros: "The two vegan meals I received on this flight were better than expected. They weren't just picked over salads without dressing or lukewarm spaghetti like some airlines serve. The entertainment provided was diverse enough, though the touch screens were a bit aggravating."
Cons: "Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, get your B-Gates sorted. Everyone of the gates in B 20s terminal had a flight leaving and there was no system set up for where people in the various flights should queue or stand. A lot of people were confused as to who was in line for this flight and where to stand prior to the actual boarding starting."
Cons: "Non-stop from Madrid to Philadelphia was canceled apparently because of a computer problem and then I was rerouted through Amsterdam with an extremely short connectios which in turn meant that baggage did not make it and was opened and damaged !!! BA clearly at fault. BA Reservations agent suggested to enter a complaint"
Pros: "A380 planes hold far too many people for the capacity of the departure terminal making the gate experience sonewhat of a spill over. Seating maps at check in did not make available a single seat close to us for a third member of our party who had booked an equal ticket on a separate booking. Yet after n boarding there were seats physically available that were not offered by check in staff. Meal trash was left for far too long before collection in our seats which was upper deck final rear cabin. Plane noise during flight was very low, excellent. Miami Airport is a logistical immigration process nightmare. We look forward to BA using FLL instead directly from the UK."
Cons: "Terrible. Flights delayed by 90 minutes. Then on boarding we as a couple weren’t sat next to each other on the four across plane, but in the two aisle seats. This was bad. But then no one was sat next to my wife. So an empty seat, my wife, me, then a stranger. C’mon Air Canada, figures it out."
Pros: "Considering the thousands of passengers who saw their flights cancelled because of the grounded 737 Max’s the fact that I was on hold for only 30 minutes and then got rerouted for the next day is amazing! Thank you Air Canada."
Pros: ". The staff was and movies waa the only good part of the flight."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and I couldn't even recline it. 6 hours in an upright position. If I would if know this I wouldn't of upgraded to that seat I actually would like a refund in this as well. Waste is money"
Pros: "Quick boarding and takeoff"
Cons: "The sound connections for the in flight entertainment was faulty. Bring your own device would be better. Seats were uncomfortable, they need replacing."
Pros: "Space, food and entertainment"
Cons: "It was late 20min"
Cons: "Lack of food choices!"
Pros: "Significant improvement in service - on the ground and the plane. The Air Canada lounge is very good - clean with excellent catering."
Cons: "Clean washrooms. Stewardesses very helpful. Good food."
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Cons: "no flights between noon and 9pm. pay for snacks..on westjet they were free"
Pros: "Good boarding.Easy check in."
Cons: "Food! Not appealing. Did not eat more than a few bites."
Cons: "Gluten free food was mediocre. Worst on any airline. Crew was not attentive and anybrequest felt like an imposition."
Pros: "Food OK."
Cons: "Gift bags do not include neck support"
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "I watched incendies and lion and both were great films so I commend your film options. The crew were all pleasant and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "The chairs have no low back support. I rolled up my sweater and put it behind my low back because the chair is so poorly designed. It seems to encourage a slouched position. maybe you have it that was to encourage people to upgrade their tickets. I hope that's not the case as that would be cruel."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in Montreal for about an hour."
Cons: "Arrived in Montreal six hours late"
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable plane ride I've ever taken. No food offered at all - everything was by purchase only. No entertainment system at all. Had to stop halfway to refuel."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food or entertainmet."
Cons: "delayed takeoff"
Pros: "courteous, helpful cabin crew on-flight entertainment gave abundant options"
Cons: "flight delayed because departure gate usurped by a Virgin America flight. inadequate seating area; too few seats; passengers boarding VA flight entered through seating area instead of directly."
Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"
Pros: "On time departure Food was good"
Cons: "Flight attendant should be friendlier"
Pros: "Efficient and helpful."
Pros: "Flight staff was very professional and very helpful to those who asked or presented a need"
Cons: "When arrived I was told flight was oversold. Told person at desk if needed I could offer my seat as I did not have a definite reason to be home . I was SHARPLY addressed by her that there was no other flight that day so not necessary. WHAT?? made no sense and if seat not needed she could have just said thank you. Proper PR"
Cons: "Wifi didnt work at all on the plane to and from new jersey from toronto. I did not receive an online boarding pass once i checked in online.. i was panicked the whole day upon boarding my flight because i was limited with the time i had to wait in line. The staff on the toronto side were so distasteful and rude, never received a smile once. Not to mention they confiscated my 300$ face wash system.. I understand now the restrictions to bringing over 120ml bottles but they refused to even pour out half the contents (which they took into consideration on the toronto side) my bottles were only 125ml.... what a joke this airline is. i was flying alone and hadnt travelled from an airport in 15 years- emails i received DID NOT specify the restrictions of what you're allowed to bring in carry ons. how is someone new to this experience supposed to know?????????they simply told me there is a website i can go to to see the restrictions... but that website is not mentioned ANYWHERE. The airport staff were extremely rude and cold while ripping apart my bags because of toiletry bottles. I have an extreme anxiety disorder that made me have a panic attack during the baggage inspect and I was given looks as if i was crazy. absolutely disgusting people working in the airport environments. They caused me a world of stress. I will never in my life fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "I can't say there is much in the way of customer service provided during this entire flight."
Cons: "They wouldn't let us upgrade even though there is tons of empty seats in first class, and the flight crew wouldn't even make eye contact or answer call lights the entire flight! Was one of my worst experiences with Air Canada."
Pros: "The plane is new."
Cons: "Meal needs to improve. All Nippon airways served much better meal."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Meals came out at great times. Food was good but not great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and started late, making our flight delayed, which made us miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "The boarding went smooth. The seats are very comfortable and there was a lot of leg room. The food was delicious and the service was great. I loved the selection of movies."
Cons: "An hour delay and mix up at which loading gate. Received ten minutes of free wi fi as compensation. Food would have been better as wi fi didn't work."
Cons: "Seats are awful no leg room. Old plane and food sucked. Horrible rude service. Will never use again."
Cons: "It was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't as friendly or willing to accomodate"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. Everything was great but they stood out to me and my experience."
Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."
Cons: "As above I had two delays of three hours each"
Cons: "Even though we checked in early, and had a three hour layover, they managed to delay our bags. It will be also 36 hours until we have them."
Pros: "Delightful, happy crew; very professional."
Cons: "No tv screens?! It's 2016! The entertainment options are abysmal."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi onboard is silly."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and friendly,"
Cons: "They changed our gate 3 times, and delayed our flight an hour and a half. It was extremely irritating and time consuming."
Cons: "Late and overbooked Toronto Airport Dodd is bad. --- no veggie optional"
Cons: "The entertainment doesnt work well."
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Coach"
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous to us. Very little turbulence on trip. Flying is very easy today more than Even 5 years ago. I will fly again on Air Canada"
Cons: "Small basic meals"
Cons: "first flight cancelled, second flight delayed so impossible to get the connection. Nobody called me about it, I had to go to ask."
Pros: "Love Air Canada"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seat. Super old aircraft. Wasn’t even given water"
Cons: "How about a sip of water atleast?"
Cons: "A delay of 28hrs is never positive. I haven’t been able to get my United points either since I was rerouted to SFO. When claiming them the system says that I never boarded the flight to EWR and completely ignore the YYZ - SFO flight. Mediocre overall."
Cons: "At the time at the gate did not allowed me even take my caryon bag with me, the staff was so rude an in an uncivilized manner start fighting with me ,I am a sinor person got very disrespected by your staff, I would like to bring a lawsuit against UA for what you did to me ,I wish an invitator from your office contantact me to explain everything,"
Cons: "Delay. I lost my first flight and almost the second as well"
Pros: "Premium seating was worth it! I actually had room to sleep and the service was great."
Cons: "Toronto's airport did not send our bags onto or flight, which I had to wait 8 hours for them to send it to my hotel. Plus, the boarding process was crazy. So many people waiting in front of the lines for them to be called. Luckily, an attendant was calling out for premium. He guided us"
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Working on flight schedule to be more precise! Delayed!"
Cons: "Crowded planes."
Cons: "At YYZ @ the wheel chair entrance, I visibly required wheel chair assistance. I approached the United INFO COUNTER and requested wheel chair assistance. She advised me to get into a long Q and after check in they will get me a wheel. chair. TSA is no greater help for your air line."
Pros: "On time. comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "Retrieving cabin luggage at other end: THey make you line-up in the jetway waiting for the handlers to bring it up the stairs. Took a while to get that sorted."
Pros: "Quick flight - happy crew - United rocks!"
Cons: "Toronto Airport needs to get their act together. This is twice now that there were two Star Alliance flights to Denver at roughly the same time - United and Air Canada - miles apart in the terminal. Yet only the Air Canada one was on the flight board. I. Er half the flight walked to F64 and then had to run to F97. Shoddy."
Pros: "It was on time and the staff were excellent"
Cons: "Like everything"
Cons: "If they know that the flight is about to delayed then they must wait for the passengers for connecting flights!"
Cons: "Cannot gauge if carry-on would fit into overhead No entertainment"
Pros: "comfortable and on time"
Pros: "Fantastic service. Much obliged for everything"
Pros: "I didn't like nothing"
Cons: "United needs to training your employees"
Pros: "Crews were great"
Cons: "Seat cushions were old and hard to sit on in excess of an hour. The don't look worn out, but certainly no one is asking. Not very comfortable for a four hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time and short in duration"
Cons: "Seats rows were narrow with just enough leg room. Very confining and uncomfortable. Our row did not recline as we were in front of the exit row. Luckily, the person in front of me did not recline their seat back."
Pros: "Crew was curteous and capable"
Cons: "The screens on the back of seats that used to play movies now play advertisements and ask you to pay for in-flight entertainment. The off button did not turn the screen off, resulting in a constant eyesore for the entire trip"

Cons: "2 Delays"
Pros: "The service staff was very friendly when they told me they were out of every food item I wanted."
Cons: "Lack of variety in snacks, foods and purchases on the plane."
Pros: "Flight was cold and they did not have blankets"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Before we boarded but then once we boarded we Sat for another hour."
Cons: "I don't fully understand why, but I was unable to get my boarding pass for my flight to Chicago from Toronto until I arrived in the Toronto airport. Toronto airport sequesters off international arrivals, so in an ideal world, I would have been able to go through security directly to into the U.S. terminal, bypassing Canada customs. However, the United desk that I needed to get my boarding pass from located just before security was unmanned. The very kind Air Canada attendant called for a representative multiple times, but after 45 minutes of waiting no one ever arrived to print my boarding pass for me. The Air Canada employee then gave up on any United staff showing up and suggested I try going through Canadian customs and checking in at the same departure desk travelers first entering the airport would go through and make sure to let them know how long I was waiting. The United employee I spoke with told me that I was impatient and should have continued waiting because now she didn't know what would happen with my checked bag and that I may well need to wait 2 hours more for that to get sorted out. I was rather surprised by her overly negative response and apparent threat. If I was irate or yelling that might have been warranted, but frankly, I was so tired from the international travel I didn't have the energy to fight with her. Regardless, I wish I had been more impatient, it was far easier to go through customs twice than I expected. I would have preferred to spend more time in the lounge inside the terminal than to stand by the United desk waiting for someone to arrive to print my boarding pass. At any rate, Canadian+US customs have it together; when I went through U.S. customs to get into the terminal they had the photo of my checked bag right there."
Pros: "My complaint with United is twofold: extremely poor customer service and airport experience. First, the plane was delayed Then cancelled took customer service 50 minuets to rebooked on a new flight to sfo instead Sjc which is far away from my house & I paid for CAB!!"
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "They delayed my flight, so now I get back home really late. Thanks, United."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding was easy."
Cons: "I wasn't informed when I booked that the flight was operated by Air Canda's budget variant, rouge, and not Air Canda as was listed on Kayak. I had no option to select seats, and when we boarded I was seated on the last row by the galley with no reclining seats and the florescent lights were on nearly the whole time on a 10 hour overnight flight. There are no seat back TVs and the free streaming service went down repeatedly just like the AC outlet at our seats (there are only two of these for three people). I booked this trip nearly a year in advance, and I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't informed that I was flying a budget airline on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "I like that we landed."
Cons: "This box seems too small to fit it all in. It's United - underwhelmed as usual."
Cons: "Plane from Toronto to Denver could have been a bit bigger / nicer for that long a trip."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of preparedness before taking off from each stop."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could"
Cons: "4 hour weather delay; missed all connecting flights; spent night in O'Hare; no food at night; no vegan food; got home 12 hours later than planned with little no sleep."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and uncomfortable. And we never pushed pack on time for all my flights"
Cons: "Incredible long walk passengers should be told when you have such a distance to walk. Passport sign in is not very user friendly should be a better scanner and easier questions they are confusing"
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "They kept delaying this flight but not telling us. First it was delayed to 6:50; at 6:51 I asked whether it was further delayed and was told no, we were about to board. Five minutes later the screen said 7:15 (and later, 7:35); at no point was there any announcement about these further delays. They then stowed carry-on luggage below, so passengers lost access to any entertainment in their carry-on. There was no entertainment on board."
Pros: "Fantastic minus the fact this flight was canceled without any notification."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that my flight was cancelled until I tried to check in online a few hours before. Then I was booked on a terrible next day combination. I had to book with another carrier for $400. I missed out on time and money."
Cons: "3+ hour delay"
Pros: "Staff were helpful, the flight took off on time and the trip was smooth."
Cons: "No complaints on any front."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised when they announced those with large carry ons could get tagged and pick up at final destination."
Cons: "The distance between arriving gates and departure."
Cons: "Didn't hold our seats! Made it with ten minutes to spare, but sold our tickets when they could of called and said three passengers are on their way over!!!! Instead made a little more money!!!!"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "We had to go to the special help counter to get our seat assignments changed so my wife and I could fly together. Then they attempted to charge us baggage fees because you didn't notify them that we used our United Explorer card. This also required me working with the gate agent to get priority boarding"
Pros: "Sitting in the flight on the Tarmac for over 2 hours is a terrible experience"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was OK. I would not write home and brag to my friends about it ..."
Cons: "There is good business between Toronto and Halifax; why must you use the smallest aircraft you can find? Use a larger aircraft and fly it fewer times per day."
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""
