Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Pros: "Great crew, snacks, comfortable flight."
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Cons: "Can't tell how the flight was because missed connecting flight from LAX to SJC because Westjet from YYZ to LAX had a mechanical issue. They end up replacing a tire which caused a 1.5 hr flight delay"
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area.

Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, half the time the staff did not use the PA system. They were not clear on who needed to do a passport check. Started to read names off then just gave up and said "a lot of you""
Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"
Cons: "A flight of four hours should have decent food. Too short connection times and inconsistent restaurants in the airports often leave me very hungry. Give us real healthy food onboard."
Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."
Cons: "No trash bag in my seat for puking or bubblegum"
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Cons: "I thought I stated this before about the flight (5), Treatment (5) all the rest (5), but Atlanta Airport does not support disabled people using scooters to get from one plane to another. With more people using these, only a matter of time until a reporter males this an ISSUE. Meanwhile I will make every effort NOT to use ATLANTA HARTSFIELD. This includes my wife, also using a scooter."
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Cons: "I showed up 2 hrs before the flight. Was told the flight from Toronto to Minn was delayed 30 minutes and go stand in line to speak to an agent. There were approx 20 in line yet only 2 gate agents at 4:30pm. One of the gate agents kept helping the Premium members and bypassing the standard line. The other agent was in a coma as his average person at counter was 10 min. Finally get to counter and they hand me a boarding pass going via Salt Lake in 30 minutes. But has a 3 hrs layover in SL. I then get to US Custom check for US residents re-entering and the line was a good 30 minute wait. You would think the Delta folks would have accounted for that line. I had to ask everyone in front of them if I could skip in front as the plane was now departing in 10 min. I had to then run on a bum knee and was the last to board. The agent at gate was saying we were calling your name but did they think I could have been stuck in customs? On that short of a window they should have walked me through Customs to make sure I got on a flight they wanted me to take versus my scheduled flight."
Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Reachung my destination"
Cons: "I can appreciate the stress on everybody's mind but this was the worst time i had flying. Short story, 10am thursday-7pm friday. Less short story, 4 airlines, 3 security screenings and 2 customs stop points.7 delays, 2 cancels and 1 miss. It was a ping pong nightmare and 2 times it was suggested i take a bus...after i spent the money on a plane ticket with no offer of compensation, food vouchers or hotel accommodation. Delta has to convince me to come back to them."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."
Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Cons: "If the flight just got cancelled from the get-go and if the airline reimbursed us or gave us flight credit."
Pros: "We arrived early!"
Cons: "Not able to connect to online entertainment."
Pros: "Very rude behavior of the staff at the desk. Flight was 7 hours delayed and then canceled. And the staff were not able to give us updates. They were being rude."
Cons: "Ground staff should need more training how to treat passengers. They should show little respect towards their passengers."
Cons: "My seats were preassigned and at 24 hour check In you have to pay to change from economy to economy into a available seat. Make no sense and is rude. Very disappointed in WestJet and I’m anElite member."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "I felt really well treated. A guy even came for us to board because we were with a child"
Cons: "I have no complains about it at all"
Cons: "Can't rate this because I missed my connecting flight from LAX to SJC due to a Westjet mechanical issue."
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat space was a bit tight"
Cons: "Little more space and leg room"
Pros: "I fly frequently and this is the first time I've travelled with West Jet. The big difference was the staff. Unlikely many airlines the West Jet crew - in flight and the ground crew - were all very friendly, helpful and actually seemed like they enjoyed their jobs. I called West Jet prior to checking in on-line and my call was answered within a minute by a real human who was so helpful. That's the polar opposite of so many airlines like Air Canada."
Cons: "The seats are too close together but that's not unique to West Jet. And the in flight crew was so helpful that it makes up for the lack of space."
Pros: "Decent flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. Also they said there is USB sockets at your seat but there were none."
Pros: "Did not even make the flight out of tulsa do to Frontier airlines"
Cons: "Read above"
Cons: "The landing was a little bit too hard."
Pros: "More leg room in seat than expected."
Pros: "Crew was funny."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 times, ended up being a 4 hour delay after a delay on our first flight already. No help at terminals until just before flights. Employees seemed spread thin. Need more help."
Pros: "Great flight. It was like the plane wasnt even moving !!"
Pros: "Airport counter staff v helpful. Crew were great. Helped lady with 2 kids. Looked after 1 while mom changing other."
Cons: "Need more seat room. No entertainment."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great. So helpful and upbeat. Every attempt was made to ensure our comfort and safety."
Cons: "I was in a window seat next to a small child and her mother. They were both lovely, but I couldn't move for the bulk of the trip because they slept most of the way. Not the fault of the airline of course, but if there was a bit more leg room, it would have been a less claustrophobic trip. I used to fly a lot back in the 70s and early 80s and I don't remember ever being so uncomfortable. I have another trip flying back home at the end of the week, and, quite frankly I'm dreading it. Also, it was impossible to hear the captain's address, the on-board instructions, or various other announcements, in the airport and on the plane. Especially on the plane; the speakers were far too quiet to hear anything the captain said other than it was a nice day."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Wheel chair services was horrible. 8 passengers needed assistance and there were 2 assistants to aid them. This took over two hours as they attended to passengers with connecting flights first. It was frustrating waiting 2hrs after the flight landed to collect luggage and leave airport."
Pros: "The crew/employees all friendly helpful and entertaining!"
Pros: "The stewards were great however no TV anymore and meals because of cost cutting was where we thought it was lacking."
Cons: "Refer to above :"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly. They offered to check bags for free at the gate which is awesome because I didn’t have to worry about finding space in the overhead bins when boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour, but it was due to weather, so it is really out of westjets hands."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "I enjoyed the WestJet app for movies. Really great for me and my daughter. Also the McDonald’s coffee ✅"
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "There was one nice, friendly flight attendant. Nice to have a variety of beverages and pretzels offered (I feel I don't expect this anymore from domestic flights-- usually just expecting the coffee or water option)."
Cons: "The seats were up there with the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced--mostly due to the lack of ability to recline. I feel a four hour flight is sufficiently long enough to provide people some space to relax. We were delayed for whatever reason, lack of communication from staff to the passengers that were boarded really quite early (perhaps too early). One of the staff, while nice enough, was being a bit snarky to people as they were trying to, what I thought was helpfully, give them their garbage."
Pros: "GREAT CREW"
Cons: "BOARDING FROM OUTSIDE-VERY COLD OUT IF I KNEW I WAS BOOKED ON A PROP PLANE I WOULD HAVE BOOKED DIRECT SEAT SIZE-CRAMPPED-I ASK THE GUY BESIDE ME IF HE WANTED THE AILSE BECAUSE HE WAS TALL AND SQUISHED CALL ME ANYTIME 306-551-3251 THAT WAY I WILL KNOW THE VALUE OF THIS SURVEY"
Pros: "Crew was lovely. Super funny and cool"
Cons: "No onboard movies etc. But it is a smaller plane so I guess it makes sense"
Pros: "Good crew! Do you call food to a cookie and a coffee? Zero entertainment unless you are carrying your own. At my age is almost next to impossible to be carrying those devices, too heavy!"
Cons: "Walking to the end to find the gate # marked on the ticket, just to find out when I got there that it was the wrong gate, it had been changed. Its hard to hear the announcements in that airport , its a very noisy one. First time in more than 8 years had to pay for 1 suitcase I had"
Pros: "Bravo for being such amazing human beings. Much obliged for a wonderful flight. Merry Christmas"
Pros: "very amusing male steward! (welcome to westjet flight xxx to cancun!")"
Cons: "well, someday i hope to be able to experience "first class!" travel, but all in all, quite adequate! i always try to fly westjet in canada."
Pros: "Was very windy when leaving Hamilton but the captain handled the flight so smoothly that I was able to sleep through most of it!"
Pros: "The staff was outstanding from the minute we arrived in Hamilton till we got to Edmonton. So impressed with the customer service."
Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."
Cons: "Arriving at Orlando, Real confusing and I'm not really old yet. Good thing we had people to meet us, I had no idea where to go."
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so as a result my carry-on baggage ended up in the cargo hold. And they treated me like it was my fault. Because of that I had to wait for it at the baggage carousel and I missed my Ferry. Pretty pissed about that."
Pros: "The staff were so helpful to travellers with small children and elderly travellers. They looked like they really enjoyed their jobs...Well Done Christine S North Vancouver"
Pros: "food, flight crew, leg room"
Cons: "crying babies"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and adequate leg room."
Pros: "The staff was very nice they got me water right away when I had to take my puffers as someone had perfume on"
Cons: "2cookies and a drink of orange juice on a 5 hour flight is food and no movie for five hours I could of got that on air Canada but one hour difference I took this flight comb"
Pros: "the connection time in Calgary was short, so overall the trip was verily quick. Generally, the flight was good, clean plane, good services."
Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Cons: "To be honest, our stuartess was very abrasive. To everyone."
Pros: "Most things"
Pros: "Pleasant flight food and entertainment no used crew helpful and courteous comfort ... seats too close as always but plenty of bin space due to them asking people to check carry on luggage for free ...great idea"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "Liked most but don't understand why a family of 3 was separated. Bought tickets together."
Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
Pros: "all the service was very good to us"
Pros: "It was a little bit delayed but after the airplane arrived everything was very fast."
Cons: "I don't have any problem about the west jet, I know that some delays is complete normal because the weather or air traffic."
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to board because my sister is autistic traveling with her service dog. This had been the worst experience ever. We feel discriminated for something that is outside our control . This is unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew was just ok, they did not extend themselves to make the customer feel comfortable/safe."
Cons: "The seat on the flight are too small the average person does not fit comfortable."
Cons: "Not being able to choose an aisle seat made the flight uncomfortable for me and my neighbors"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours (reason unknown) and the entertainment on flight shut off once and then froze for 20 minutes"
Cons: "No wifi, no movies, no power outlets. The budget airline I flew to Mexico (Volaris) was nicer."
Pros: "All the service they give is excellent."
Pros: "Great service all around. I would recommend."
Cons: "Boarding process. The Zone lines are formed a very long time before boarding really begins. Why?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and staff are very nice"
Cons: "The ground crew in CDMX is inept."
Cons: "Check in was very slow with long long long lines."
Pros: "As above"
Pros: "Our ~5 hour lay over in Benito Juarez airport was not good."
Cons: "Airport was very warm no AC. Crowded. Poor variety for sit down restaurants. They too were crowded and poor service and expensive."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "It was going to be a 45 mins delay, turned out to be 1 1/2hrs"
Pros: "They kept close to schedule."
Cons: "The division of lines with the passeengers."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "We boarded fast and we arrived on time"
Cons: "I requested a "Fragile" label for my suitcase. They said they ran out of them. When I came back home, they had break 2 memories. One of them from the conference I taught. I tried to wrap them as tight as possible. I am aware of the risks of carrying fragile things but I can't stop thinking that the label might had helped avoiding things getting break. Flight Attendance were not very friendly. They were not rude but defiantly not friendly"
Pros: "Comfortable and arrived on time"
Cons: "México has wonderful food, their airline should highlight that"
Pros: "They took very good care of my fragile box."
Cons: "On boarding the plane the crew didn’t have control of the people and when zone 2 started to board zone 3 started to cut the zone 2"
Cons: "I asked staff from Aero Mexico twice whether there was going to be any food served on the flight, I was told that they did not know or didn't think there wiuld be any service. I ended up buying food I did not need. Also my husband and I were separated in the flight. Food served was so so."
Pros: "First class was nice onboard the plane, but too tired to enjoy it since it was a 1am flight."
Cons: "The counters did not open until 10pm, only 2hrs B4 "the flight closed at 12 midnight), even though they say arrive 180 minutes early. The "SkyPriority" line was the slowest line. At the outset two agents weren't even helping guests. This was a very frustrating experience. Unfortunately, I had to pickup and recheck my bag and ended up waiting outside security for several hours because there was no where to drop the bag after passing immigration from my connecting flight. I suggest AM get another airline's baggage handler to recheck bags for early arriving customers so at least they can wait inside security where amenities abound."
Pros: "Aeromexico keeps impressing me! The professionalism is great. The timing and ease of boarding was perfect. And the leg room and on-board accommodations make it a comfortable journey. Definitely now among my list of favorite airlines!"
Cons: "Poor signage, lack of good food restaurants, the over all quality has gone downhill since the 80's and 90's when I would eagerly look forwards to flying to Mexico."
Cons: "Delayed flight with no explanation. Curt airline hostesses. Limited bathrooms. No inflight entertainment options. 1 hour waiting for bags at destination."
Pros: "The nonstop flight was efficient and the wait was short"
Cons: "1.5 hour. Line up to get boarding pass and check baggage is terrible. Also could not do seat selection on line- same day even though web site lead me to it several times. No explanation."
Pros: "The plane/Pilot got us home."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. The plane was old and had the drop down video screens. This was terrible- we couldn’t see the one closest to us, only the one further away. But any words on the further one, we couldn’t read. The staff on the plane were rude and made us seem like we’re a bother and unwelcome. We were scared to ask for anything."
Cons: "We lost our connection fight for delayed and we have been charged extra for ALL the baggages ($25 dollars per baggage). Which is insane!!! Uncomfortable plane and seats apart from my husband, Overall bad experience :-( :-("
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, good entertainment system and content."
Cons: "Food was pretty mediocre. I'd prefer to pay a few dollars extra for a better meal."
Pros: "Extensive list of movie choices on the plane, and good viewing device with which you can use your own ear buds. Cabin crew was courteous and attentive."
Cons: "Check-in to an international flight was a long drawn process, as usual"
Cons: "MY FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED!!!!!!!!!!! I DID NOT GET AN EMAIL NOTIFICATION!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WAS IN THE AIRPORT FOR OVER 11 HOURS!!!!!!"
Cons: "I couldn't watch movies so I asked flight attendant she said " watch next screen ". But there was someone sitting! How can I do that!!! They didn't say sorry"
Cons: "Miss morning fight onAeroméxico ,canceled our return fligh thome Wanted to charge us more to More to book a flight back the fair was the fair was double the price what I paid so I had to book with United Airline"
Pros: "Sf to Mexico was fine"
Cons: "Lost my immigration form and missed my flight. Airline told me to talk to my booking agent. I spent time talking to justfly and it took them a long time to tell me they couldn’t do anything and I’m stuck in Mexico for a day."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Having a full row to myself"
Cons: "No entertainment system. Not even a port to charge out personal devices so we can entertain ourselves."
Pros: "very smooth flignt"
Cons: "boarding took a long time due to last minute checkups"
Cons: "Well, I missed my flight currently still waiting to HOPEFULLY board my flight home to San Francisco."
Pros: "The stewardesses were hotties with very cute outfits. The chars were fairly comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this helped us because our flight prior was also insanely delayed."
Pros: "The only positive factor about this specific flight was the staff who is very diligent and attentive to everyone."
Cons: "Once we got on the plane, the pilot mentions there is a delay due to the AC not functioning but they are fixing it. We took off and the AC apparently was never fixed because it was out for the whole flight. On top of that there was basically no entertainment on flight. Those two things are basic when flying."
Cons: "My passengers are still in mexico, The flight was delayed 1 day and I was not notified I need you to get me a new ticket at your expense"
Cons: "TWICE for crying aloud I suspected it would before and sure enough it did it after I ate it Mexico has a beatiful food tradition why do you mess around with idiotic offerings? Best to not offer any food if it does not secure decent taste"
Pros: "the plane was about one quarter empty so I had an empty set beside me. crew were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Bumpy ride - beyond AeroMexico's control."
Cons: "The gate did not display the flight and there were three flights out of my gate at roughly the same time. It was unnerving not knowing if I was getting on the correct flight."
Pros: "Transfer through Mexico city airport is a nightmare. You can clear immigration, get your luggage, clear customs, transfer terminal, check in your luggage, going through security, and finally get to your gate. All without any clear guidance from the airline or the airport. I will never fly through Mexico City again."
Pros: "I liked how they gave me a meal on the flight. It was a crossaint, one slice of ham and cheese but it's better than nothing."
Cons: "The boarding system was terrible. 30 minutes to departure, they just threw up "Last Call" and I was like WTF? and ran to gate only to find out that we just started boarding."
Pros: "I appreciate that flight service is very good, food was provided, and movies are free..all of this making for a more relaxed flight."
Cons: "Mexico City seems to have a new random security pre-boarding process. I was selected for this process. They swab bags,palms, shoes, and then have you sit down and remove your shoes so they can swab the inside of your shoes to check for some sort of residual. However, instead of doing the process before, it's in the midst of boarding with people walking all around you, meaning that you are in an awkward public space and board late. This also means there is no place to store your bag in the overhead compartment by the time you get on the plane."
Pros: "There was no proper food and the staff showed a bit of an attitude. Could have been much better."
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "Rushing from gate to gate after sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes after not having anything to eat on the four hour flight from PHL. Not being able to get anything healthy because the layover was reduced from 40 minutes to 5. GIVE US SOME FOOD DAMMIT!"
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
Pros: "I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "American knew it had a problem and never resolved it - delaying our flight by minutes every few minutes - we had 38 text messages indicating a change. In addition the crew "aged out" so we had to get a second crew - waited for that. the first plane had a mechanical, the second plane had a mechanical - more lengthy delays then finally the last plane was fine - but was again delayed by yet another hour for a total of 7 hours delay. Our compensation? Non existent."
Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Pros: "The customer service!"
Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was great."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"
Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."
Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Cons: ""Parked" on tarmac for 25 minutes waiting to leave LAX. Arrived half an hour late"
Cons: "More flight delays..."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "Crew was apologetic."
Cons: "PHL ground stop no known reason. Good weather. Even pilot was at a loss. 4 hours total delay, 3 of which spent in tarmac."
Pros: "The plane was a newer Boeing 738 plane and has AC power outlet at every seat. However I was not able to use their in-flight movie channel on my tablet since there were too many users."
Cons: "I am an Executive Platinum member and normally should get a meal even in economy. It was not offered on this flight. The crew didn't have a friendly attitude."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Cons: "The fact the flight was delayed for 5 hours due to weather."
Pros: "The check in process with the kiosks. It was very easy."
Cons: "They ran out of sandwiches that we had to pay for. We didn't have to do that on the Aer Lingus flight, which was for the same amount of time. In the other flight we had choice in entetainment."
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."
Pros: "The Crew were outstanding and the flights were quiet and smooth. Very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were so crowded. No leg room. The lady next to me was too big for her seat so it was hot and sweaty the whole way"
Cons: "airbus A320 doesn't have power ports at seats...."
Pros: "Entertainment was not available for the latest Safari browser 10."
Pros: "Smooth, quick flight!"
Pros: "Again getting moved up to first class"
Cons: "I would have liked to know before I was already seated in Coach."
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
Cons: "Flight was pushed out at least 5 times before departing. Once we even boarded and were told to get off the plane after the delay became too long, "for security purposes." The pilot was completely unprofessional - he tried to make light of the situation. At first it was funny but the jokes soon got old. There was little attempt to to update as the delay kept getting longer and longer. We learned more about the delay from our phone apps than from the crew. Most idiotic and incompetent group I've ever flown with."
Pros: "Since the merge with US Airways, it seems as though American has adopted it's ways. US Airways was my least favorite airlines therefore I am disappointed by the merge. American now charges $25 each way for a trip to the Caribbean, which was not the case in the past. No entertainment provided unless one wants to watch a Free movzie on your small cell phone screen (lets hope your phone is well charged and you remember to bring your ear buds also)."
Cons: "Lack of snack options, lack if entertainment, baggage fees, less space for comfort."
Pros: "Captain was like a tour guide, gave us info about what we were flying over and kept us super up to date on all info."
Cons: "Seat in front distance. Granted I'm over 6 feet tall but sucks to have to pay $50 just to be slightly comfortable. Then in the aisle getting bumped all the time with people going by. Got rammed by the flight attendant cart, wasn't very fun. Left a nice bruise on my shin."
Pros: "You provided a room"
Cons: "It seems you could have given me some extra miles or a free flight for all rhe hassles ov missing flights both going to Toronto and the return trip as well as missing my luggage for two days on the return!!!!!"
Cons: "For the second time I traveled with Air Canada there was a 4 hour delay in Toronto. I will not be traveling with Air Canada ever again"
Cons: "Canada rouge"
Cons: "Total commotion at gate. Two flights jammed into one small gate area. Rep was surly and embarrased many who were confused in the commotion and ynclear communication from the boarding agent. Tv didnt work for 4 hrs."
Pros: "Everything was good, that day was to much therbulans. Thank you air Canada"
Pros: "Had screens and movies available. Crew was nice and flight wasn't overly packed."
Pros: "The food I purchased was good (salad, cashews, and a glass of wine)...water was offered several times during the flight"
Cons: "Cabin was hot, the passenger air controls did nothing to cool us, the staff kept the cabin lights on full, so it was difficult to nap or watch the movies/tv....the sound quality of the movie/tv is awful. My travel companion became ill during the flight (nausea, minor seizure, dizziness, hot, etc...), she did not consume any alcohol...she is 57, not old by any means ."sick bags" were not in the seat pocket, the crew barely got her one in time.....they did have her sit in the back of the plane, where it was cooler. It might have been a good idea to give her oxygen...upon landing, we were told that there would be a wheelchair at the gate (never appeared), and while we were waiting for it, the crew ignored us, only concerning themselves with the location of the nearest Starbucks in the terminal, then left us with a staff member who had no idea about the wheelchair, didn't give us any sort of ice pack. ....we finally just gave up and slowly and carefully walked to baggage claim"
Cons: "Food can be much better and entertainment options as well."
Cons: "The plane was too old Did not prepare enough food No free snacks"
Pros: "In seat entertainment console with recent movies. Only food for purchase."
Pros: "Having empty seat next to me made for comfortable trip"
Cons: "Broken headphone jack made trip feel very long and boring because couldn't watch TV."
Pros: "Was not delayed"
Pros: "Crew and newness of plain"
Cons: "Food options and quality"
Pros: "Size of plane allowing for aisle seating."
Cons: "Delay with boarding for about hour without a good explanation. All monitors in airport shows plane on time when it actually was not. Boarding process also took a bit of time perhaps due to many elderly on the flight. Seating was also confusing as the middle seats did not correspond with aisle seating. This caused delays as passengers had to figure out where they were sitting. Checked in luggage at gate since flight was full and we were asked to volunteer to check-in luggage. At baggage claim, bag delay to retrieve luggage after already hour delay in departure. Bags was not labeled or categorized correctly causing an extra half hour delay to claim bags."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "Flight left two hours late. They split my wife and I up despite having our tickets for two months and checking in well before the flight and then lost our luggage and delivered it a full day later than they told us."
Cons: "The fight had intercom problems and that delayed us for 5+ hours with no decision as to the resolution. We finally got home at 4 AM ...."
Cons: "Flight from SFO to YYZ left late"
Cons: "Moved to another flight despite the fact we were on time to make the flight through security."
Cons: "Flights delayed both there and back, with no advance warning and no reason given. Online & airport signage said flight "on time" the whole time. Asked Air Canada Customer Service desk in Toronto to change signage to accurate time, they were SUPER snooty and treated me like an idiot. Signage did not change, my husband came to airport "on time" to pick me up and then had to sit there 1-1/2 hours. They are inconsiderate jerks."
Pros: "Great airline. Highly recommend them"
Pros: "Arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed too much like salespersons. Aircraft was overly air conditioned but blankets were available only by purchase"
Pros: "We were safe."
Cons: "Big problems with frequent flyer miles. After a number of hours into the effort I am told my miles won't count. For the average airline it takes about 30 seconds to join the frequent flyer club. Air Canada now is my last choice for long flights. Ok maybe before Frontier."
Pros: "We arrived on time and safely."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess. This is due more to the Toronto airport than Air Canada. Passengers standing in front of the entrance to the gate made cueing up to enter when your zone was called impossible. Drinks were offered only twice on the 5 hour flight. Bathrooms were filthy."
Cons: "Breakfast flight over 5 hours and they want you to pay for even a snack!"
Pros: "Boarding is the best!"
Cons: "I do understand mechanical issues occur, but your communication of these issues was awful! My god, you cannot tell if your electronics are working before you board people. One thing I can say for America, they do not mess around.....they fix problems....your team sucked leaving Toronto Barcelona two weeks ago and then you suck leaving Toronto to SFO. Please understand, folks have flight connections and the number one thing then need from you, instead of water is information on whether their flight will be waiting for them!!!"
Pros: "The crew members tried their best in the unfortunate circumstance and the choices of movies was okay but it was better than nothing."
Cons: "I chose to fly directly to save time, and I spent the extra $100 for choosing this option over flights with a layover. I ended up waiting an additional 2 and a half hours before the flight took off -- in this time I also requested for a blanket since the air craft got cold. There was an extra charge for this as well. It is ridiculous considering, the purpose of my flight choice was to ensure that I saved time and in return I paid for the convenience, ironically it didn't work out that way. There was no form of compensation."
Pros: "Bags were checked all the way through, Canada to US and I didn't have to recheck them before connection into US."
Cons: "That they make you take your headphones off during takeoff and landing - ear buds only makes no sense."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. I pretty much slept the whole way, so I can't tell you much about the crew or anything else."
Cons: "The movies and shows were great, but the machine was super slow. I also had to hold my headphones only halfway into the jack or else it would not work properly. It also was surprising to hear that headphones and blankets were extra. The plane was pretty cold, and paying for these extra fees for a family of 3 (or more for others) really adds up! Our family had two check-in bags, and rather than being charged $25 each, we were charged $25+$35 even though the bags were in two different family member names."
Pros: "Cabin crew were pleasant and flights on time."
Cons: "Food awful, had to pay for food on the SFO to Toronto leg of journey. The food provided on Toronto to Glasgow journey was of poor quality and had to pay for a glass of wine, this is free when flying with BA. I did not even receive a bag of peanuts. I paid for extra leg room in an exit row thinking it was the same exit row as a BA plane.... The extra legroom I paid for was negligible, minimal difference noted."
Pros: "Once again, attendants were pleasant. Plane was clean"
Cons: "No snacks served, only beverages. We could have at least received one bag of nuts/chips for the flight."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and the boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The seats have no room, most of the planes don't have entertainment systems even on transatlantic flights (or they charge for an iPad), the food is terrible (when compared to other airlines), they didn't turn on the air during boarding which made the cabin very uncomfortable. The bathrooms were also not kept clean which is a problem for flights over 9 hours."
Pros: "The trip from Toronto to San Francisco was better than the San Francisco trip because the return trip was on a Boeing 747 and a much more comfortable than the Airbus."
Cons: "The Airbus red eye going to Toronto was too cramped so it was not very relaxing. The planes are not clean. I'm glad I have wipes to clean the table tray because it was messy."
Pros: "Staff are wonderful."
Cons: "Not comfortable compared to other airlines."
Pros: "The cabin crew provided drinks throughout the 5.5 hours flight."
Cons: "The safety demo was done manually by a staff at the front row that most people from rows 15 onward probably could not hear."
Pros: "comfortable seats good movies"
Cons: "no food for a 5 hour flight, not even snacks very crowded - not enough room for carry ons the customs procedure took forever, very nerve racking"
Pros: "Over all I love air canada"
Cons: "Food too tight on giving you anything"
Pros: "Standard plane conditions."
Cons: "Flight was two hours delayed. Plane downgraded. Seat reassigned without notice. But worst was the gate agent who took my carry on because the bins were "absolutely 100% full." When I got on there were at least 8 spots for bags right around my seat. Some customers after me still had their bags. And I had to wait an extra 30 minutes at the baggage claim waiting. When I asked the lead flight attendant to get the name of the gate agent before we left she said she would do her best but then forgot. She also tried to defend the gate agent by explaining the flight was full and why I should have been glad they took my bag."
Pros: "the boarding process was smooth and organized."
Cons: "food should be part of the ticket and not extra payment. In a 5 to 6 hours of flight there should be at least some snacks offered."
Pros: "One hour late due to waiting transit passengers thought US custom. But catch up in arrival on time in SFO"
Cons: "Food - because I was in the last section, they ran out of chicken. And only offer paste with Cheese. I can't take cheese and daily product. It iwas a hungry trip"
Cons: "Food offerings were really mediocre and poor quality. For the staff and crew, I did not get the feeling that they had a service oriented mentality in their communications and attitude. It felt more like I was being processed- just one of any number of faceless people that needed to be dealt with as quickly as possible."
Pros: "I enjoyed the pleasant crew and the constant water being given."
Cons: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. However it was unexpected that no food would be provided on a 5 hour flight. If not a small meal then a snack was expected. The crew did provide water consistently which was very nice. My personal entertainment screen was very unresponsive and then the head phone jack wasn't working for sound, I had to hold it at a certain angle to hear bits of sound. Since the head phone jack was located at my thigh it was very uncomfortable and when I shifted I broke my headphones :("
Cons: "Air cananda made me go crazy... They didn't prepared anything after I missed my flight. Because of immigration. They just said to me that was not their fault. But you know, I arrived at air port 5am. My flight time was 8am. I asked aircanada clerks to get into gate quckily. But they had me wait for a long time, and they said everybody was waiting, so that's not problem. But when I got into gate at 8:45, My plane already had gone. And I went to Air canada service center, I had argued for 5hours... because they just prepared my flight from Toronto to San Francisco. They didn't care about Connected air plane was Asiana. So I Had to call three company.. Asiana, Kayak, air canada... that was horrible time. Air canada didn't want to have responsibility about missing air plane. That's why I had to contact with Asiana...the first time Asiana didn't want to prepare air plane for free... I had to try to explain my situation and problem three times.... Finally I got a ticket for free from Asiana. I could departure at 9pm from Toronto. I stayed in Pearson air port for 15hours... because of Air canada's GOOD!! customer service v^^v..... I will never use Air canada !!"
Cons: "Missed our flight in dublin and the crew wouldn't let us board even though we were there with sufficient time."
Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Terrible boarding and awful transfer connection at the Toronto airport."
Pros: "Really flight was very good, but seats to family member given separate seperate."
Pros: "It was a nice flight-- the seats were comfortable and relatively spacious. The cabin crew was very friendly and accommodating. They offered us water multiple times throughout the trip in addition to the normal drink service, which was much appreciated. Also, the AirCanda gate in Toronto was ridiculously nice-- many of the seats came with a desk, phone and laptop outlets, and an iPad!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes, the boarding process went quite slowly, and our bags were slow to arrive at baggage claim on the other end (which probably was the airport's fault rather than AirCanada's). But these were only minor inconveniences."
Pros: "They give you earbuds if you forgot yours."
Cons: "I have been on several Air Canada flights and only ONE has taken off on time. Who has an international flight and does not serve any food? Not even one peanut or pretzel!! Entertainment system has the absolute worst tv shows. Or you need the app and PURCHASE the privilege to use it. The people boarding move at a snail's pace"
Pros: "Our incoming international flight was late; the generously held the flight for us and gave us water after we boarded...we were parched from running!"
Cons: "The interior of the A321 was dated and the seatback monitor had low resolution compared to newer products."
