Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."
Cons: "No other airline I flew to Germany with every charged extra for movies. That was really disappointing. We also didn't get our luggage until two days later (which happens, and I completely understand). But what I absolutely didn't understand was that nobody could ever tell me when we would get it."
Pros: "Always happy ... thank you."
Cons: "It was really cold"
Pros: "Flight was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Airline stewards we're not very attentive"
Pros: "Great entertainment and friendly staff."

Pros: "Found the crew to be friendly and relaxed. The plane was fairly new. Overall, it went fine as long as you understood it was going to be simple offerings."
Cons: "Apparent aggressiveness to get as many carry on bags paid for by the ground staff measuring with a measuring tape all bags. I've never seen anything like it. My bag was fine. Then, when they started to take fees you had to come back and pay. It wasn't done right then. The ground staff was minimally helpful. Flight amenities or not, pay for headset and having more than 2 TV shows and 2 movies cost you an up charge even on an overseas flight. One choice for dinner.- pasta so it was vegetarian. Breakfast was a sad roll, one small piece of cheese and ham, and fruit that was that questionable. Overnight flight, pillow no blanket in Economy. Seats hard and leg room was tight. Their Economy plus and business looked a much better way to go."
Pros: "The flight was great and nothing to complain about The stewards were very professional, we travelled business and the snacks and the light lunch was perfect Of course the star of the flight was Terence ( I hope I got his name right?) He was the first time someone made feel so welcome on a flight. The guy is so funny and managed to have the entire flight in a happy mood before landing Well done"

Cons: "I wish the online options could be changed. Once I chose messaging, half way through the flight I wanted to pay for everything, but it won't let you go back and change through promotions or otions."
Cons: "Flight attendants where great and beautiful"
Pros: "Crew give me feel comfortable!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was cleaned."

Pros: "It was fast and easy boarding."
Cons: "The male flight attendant seemed bothered and annoyed when asked questions."
Pros: "Was ok"

Pros: "At least, one gets pretzels with the drink. I didn't take dvantage of watching TV or a movie so the question isn't applicable to me. I am disabled and the crew was extemely helpful and pleasant."

Pros: "Direct flight at that time."
Cons: "Seat 32A was freezing! Food? really you are asking about food on airlines. If so can you put negative stars? No one expects good food or even ANY food on airlines anymore. That ship has sailed."
Pros: "Felt a bit dupped. Alaska is amazing. This flight was run by American. I hate flying American. Rude personnel. Older seats. Ugly terminals. Gaps for our feet were not set below the chairs evenly. I had the middle seat but my floor space went into what should have been the aisle seat's space. I felt bad for the guy. Chair support landed right were his foot would have naturally slide forward."
Pros: "We were delayed in LAX about 6hrs. due to a mechanical problem. I know this happens, but when one has a connecting flight to make, it is disconcerting that no one from Alaska addresses that problem. We found out after the fact there were many other flights to Seattle that we could have transferred too and arrived at our final destination somewhat on time..... not at for AM the next morning, 12 hours late!"
Cons: "SORRY, PLEASE SEE "WHAT DID YOU LIKE" Also, luggage was lost in Seattle, bound for Wenatchee, did not have change of clothes for TWO DAYS. Had to purchase extra "stuff". Would have been to have been told about other flights from LAX to SEA-TAC."

Pros: "Reserving my flight was smooth & easy Boarding was good Crew was cordial & professional Snack okay"
Cons: "Comfort wasn't the best - it was tight, but okay No entertainment"
Pros: "The staff is awesome and kind and made arrangements quickly."
Cons: "But our flight was altogether cancelled and we had to be routed through Seattle, spend the night there, before heading to our final destination the next day. We'd just been traveling internationally, so this sucked big time, and we went from a total travel time of 20 hours to 40 hours. I would have felt better if they'd given me a voucher for a free flight or something."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Didn't even get a glass of water. What has happened to US domestic. The plane and staff were old and exhausted."
Pros: "Everything was smooth beginning to end. Thanks Kayak"
Pros: "I enjoy flying Alaska. I am frustrated when my flights have part with American"

Pros: "The crew did their job. Some attendants were very kind, helpful."
Cons: "Food could be better. Old aircraft, old style seats. Other airlines have improved this very, very much. Delta is lagging behind."
Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."
Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."
Pros: "- flying business was great. Comfortable chairs that lay flat. - entertainment options are amazing. Worthy of any international flight."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "They lost my luggage & made me miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Food and service was amazing."

Cons: "Coach seats still a little too small. Always bump the person next to me"

Pros: "All that one would want."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Cons: "No space."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "Booked as Delta but flew WestJet. Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Only minimal snacks available due to shorter flight."
Pros: "suppose to be Delta but operated by West Jet"
Cons: "My seat choice was ignored on one flight"
Pros: "The quiet so I could sleep"
Cons: "Changing my seat last minute. Had to ask two women to move to get into my seat. Loading the plane first with passengers that have nothing to store above would expedite the experience for me. My seat belt disconnected from the back of the seat. The tray was broken and could not be lowered into a writing or eating position."
Pros: "I liked that I had a vacant seat next to me."
Cons: "Small, narrow seats and way too cramped. Absolutely no leg room or much space to the seat in front. Terrible for a long haul international flight compared to other airlines. No free alcohol on an international flight!"
Pros: "Flight was very good. We look at t.v. and watch movies to make the flight short."
Cons: "I didn't like when I call and ask about the delayed when told that they were waiting on equipment, then when we get to the airport was told that the flight was a international flight that was running late. The Lies!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was 5 hours delayed. Finally rebooked and still missed all connections because that flight was late departing. All legs of this trip on delta were delayed. Lousy service ast attempting to resolve situation. Given a choice, I do not choose Delta as a first choice airline to fly."
Pros: "El vuelo a su hora el avión súper. Moderno súper súper y los precios súper bajos gracias kaya"
Cons: "Delayed as always, time it was a 2 hour delay. The worse airline I've flown on."

Cons: "NOTHING IT WAS GOOD AND THANK YOU"
Pros: "Smooth, nice flight. Excellence service, they tried to make up for the late pioltes, allowing to broad befriend they arrived."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, because the pilots were late. Not only was it delayed over an hour, but the flight itself was postponed twice because they knew they had a problem with scheduling."
Pros: "Pretty good service. Excellent cabin service. Good snacks. Organized announcements at Gate. Constantly updating lateness of flight. The whole Delta staff did great job with very quick turnaround time when plane was at gate. Excellent Starbucks coffee! Was appreciated!"
Cons: "1hour late leaving LAX. Rough flight. Weather not withstanding the landing had people concerned. I've been on a lot of flights-that was probably the roughest/least precise landing I've ever experienced!"
Pros: "I didn't fly from LA to Indianapolis"
Pros: "Smooth, quiet"
Pros: "Got me to my destination safe and on time!"
Cons: "Sudden gate change. Seems like it was a little last minute, but the boarding team handled it pretty well."
Pros: "It was a red eye. Geared fir sleep. Great Crew"
Pros: "Excellent from curb to curb 5minutes- curb drop off and check in w curbside skycab, one bag and one bike case! 8minutes - thru TSA! Flight comfort, food,drinks, cleanliness - excellent! The time it took to walk to baggage, my bag was in the carousel and my bike case was at the oversize location, 20ft from the carousel. I was there to compete in the XTerra World Championships, you couldn't ask for a better stress free flight and service, Thanks!"
Cons: "Hour and half delay"
Pros: "We were on time!"
Cons: "We didn't get our luggage until an hour later after our flight arrived to the destination,"
Pros: "Crew was great! Seat space was a bit tight"
Cons: "Little more space and leg room"
Pros: "Didn’t make my flight"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and there’s no tv for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "I paid for a window seat, but there was no window. Contacted WestJet and they refused me a refund."
Pros: "Yes, they are."
Cons: "If we have something to watch."
Pros: "I booked Cathay pacific but they changed to China Southern without any notification."
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Pros: "This is a no frills flight that does not offer food or entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are always uncomfortable as it is a smallplane"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff and service."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."
Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"
Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride, wished it was cancelled. I was motion sick the entire ride, and no water was provided until four hours in, and while I understand it was due to turbulence, perhaps if it is too bumpy to serve water for the first four hours we should not be flying at all. Also very little food is provided for a 5.5 hour trip, two biscuits is not sufficient and as we landed near midnight there are not many options to acquire quick food either."
Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers i Vancouver were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"
Cons: "I checked my little carry-on and it was in Calgary but didn't make it to Vancouver. Trust it will be delivered today."
Pros: "The flight and the seating was comfortable. Food served was fine too."
Cons: "Well, they mixed up my check-in luggage during transit. As a result it got delayed and I had to spend the night without it. Although, I was informed about this miss when I landed in Vancouver, the team did not seem to feel particularly bad about it. Also, the process of getting reimbursed for the predefined expenditure allowance needs to be more efficient. Ideally, in such cases, the airlines should not only refund the check-in fee, but also provide a prepaid card to make any urgent purchases. Their current process requires one to bear the expenses initially, scan/click and send the original receipts and await a response from their baggage team. I am waiting to hear back from them on my submission."
Pros: "The friendly crew."
Cons: "Crowded seating. Canceled flight. Moved to a much later flight and that one was late taking off. Use to like flying West Jet when it started flying to Canada. Not so much now. Scheduling is getting worse. Are you canceling flights because they are not full planes?"
Pros: "good looking crew members"
Cons: "ugly pilot"
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "it was a very noisy flight with a lot of children. Asked the crew to let me have tablet for 9.99$ but since I am a tourist and have no credit card they could not sale it to me."
Cons: "airport did t have air conditioning and there is no room in the overhead compartments propeller planes are unreasonable loud"
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "Thankfully our flight wasn't 100% full. Our baby got a seat to herself, which allowed her to sleep the whole trip, ans my legs didn't fall asleep from her weight. Blessing! The staff were very accomodating and friendly for parents travelling with young children."
Cons: "Internet was down so not entertainment whatsoever. Planes of any size or length of travel should have at least a few tv's so we can watch something to pass the time. Cookies are surprisingly delicious, but your choice between pretzels and cookies are very limiting (and boring). Another option would be much loved."
Cons: "Let me see, waited over an hour for a flight to catch up from Ottawa. Now flight to Vancouver over an hour late, gets in about 10 minutes before flight to Hong Kong leaves. So they say will wait for us as flight not full. Nope, flight leaves without 7 of us. Got the " don't know what happened" look. So they give us a $60 dollar food voucher, and take us to hotel because now must wait 12 hours for next flight. Tell us to be in lobby at a certain time to catch shuttle back to airport. Time comes, sorry no room, and buggers off. They call taxis, when drivers find drive for vouchers, tell us to load own baggage! Not likely to fly West Jet again."
Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."
Pros: "On time. Crew was great"
Cons: "Took a long time for the ground crew to set up the bridge which caused delay in deplaning"
Cons: "I'm a bit disappointed by the services provided by Westjet: 1) I never received the confirmation of my fight/booking from Westjet; 2) I was not aware that the connecting from LA to SJ and SJ to LA were operated by different companies therefore I was not able to check in or even to check the gate information at the airport. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA in the early morning 3) at the SJ airport, I was not aware that the flight from SJ to LA was operated by Delta not American airline. However, the Westjet customer services 1-888 number listed in your Kayak confirmation was not a correct number. I even tried to look up another customer services number of Westjet by searching the Westjet website, the number I found was not in service neither. I almost missed my flight from SJ to LA 4) At the LA airport I was told that I was not able to board the flight because I did not have the Canadian ETA. they said they would pull my checked luggages and flight them with my re-scheduled flight and will be shipped to the final destination Vancouver, Canada. when I arrived Vancouver, both suitcases were not arrived with my flight. One arrived with my original flight and the second were missing. The agent could not even tell me where the suitcase was. Moreover, the second did not arrive the time I was told it should arrive. My second suitcase was not allocated even before I left Vancouver to Europe one day after my travel. 5) No one responded to the luggage services number provided in the document. I could only successfully login to the link for the checking the status after I returned home in Brussels. 6) I was told that the second suitcase will be delivered to my home in Europe by another company. Currently I'm still waiting for my second suitcase."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "The attendants were very cordial and considerate."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."
Pros: "staff was nice, plane clean"
Cons: "cheap airlines! They do not feed you on an international flight! You have to buy your seat ahead of time, or get assigned. You have to pay for all your luggage. They do not even give one bag on international flight. You can down load an app for entertainment, or rent their ipads. Many of us said, worst customer care ever, and never again"
Pros: "Very reasonable fares, pleasant service. I had to call customer service and got prompt help."
Cons: "I've had two flights with WestJet. Both flights had their take-off times altered significantly a couple of months ahead of time. (One by 45 minutes, one by 2 hours.) In addition, both took off 2-3 hours late."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Being disabled I found everyioine very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "row to myself"
Cons: "no free wine!"
Cons: "During my booking I ended up with my return flight being on the same day as my departing flight. I was surprised that this was not noticed as I would not have even reached Vancouver before I was scheduled to return. My fault too as I did not look at the tickets when I printed then off before we left Fortunately there was only a 120.00 charged to change our tickets. I am just thankful my husband noticed the day before we got to the airport to come home as the flight was totally booked."
Cons: "Did not get TSN for the entire flight, even after we entered Canadian airspace."
Cons: "tow ticky packs of snaks in 5 hours flight"
Cons: "When we were checking in, they told us we had not payed for our seats and the flight was full so we could not sit together? I did not understand that. Long overnight flight so I was counting on my wife and I leaning on each other to get some sleep so that was no so good."
Pros: "friendly service. Both ground staff and attendants"
Pros: "First time to travel with Westjet, overall Very nice experience"
Cons: "Where to begin, the flight was continually delayed with no good explanation and ended up being about 3 and a half hours late, the seats are uncomfortable, the screens are tiny, you have to pay for each movie, no meals are included, have to pay for ANY checked baggage... What is this, Ryanair. No coupons or anything for them being so late, and we were moved to different seats. STAY AWAY FROM WESTJET. Never flying with them again ever."
Pros: "How nice the staff are"
Cons: "Landing was abit rough"
Pros: "After several eye rolls, I was offered taxi vouchers to and from our hotel - I had several bags and 3 sleeping children and i needed help getting to and from the hotel, more than what would have been offered with the shuttle service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no indication of the delays from the crew. I was emailed that we would be having supper on the flight - but myself and my 3 kids were told there were not enough meals and we were unable to eat anything other than some small snack items. We missed our connecting flight and given the late hour I would have appreciated some extra help with my 3 (sleeping) children exiting the plane - I asked for help but none was given."
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally clean (looked almost new) and the flight attendants were pleasant and a bit funny. Really great experience."
Cons: "Free beer. O, wait you had that!"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "It was not crowded breakfast"
Cons: "Breakfast was lousy"
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"
Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."
Pros: "Lots of good movies"
Cons: "Less than average legroom for an international flight."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Staff was really friendly Boarding was easy Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not much space within the seats Food was mediocre Entertainment was okay"
Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."
Pros: "That the staff at American Aiirlunes were helpful in getting me to my destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then canceled!!!!! I missed my connecting flight in Miami."
Pros: "Nothing. Cause it didn't happen"
Cons: "Mechanics issues. Plane never took off. Never made our connection. Had to get a new flight."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Pros: "Quick to board and on time, plenty of leg room, great new movie and shoe selection during the flight."
Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."
Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"
Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"
Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."
Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"
Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"
Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."
Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "The flight from LAX to HKG was diverted to Haneda, Tokyo. The septic tank was not properly emptied in LAX. Flight in Hong Kong was delayed by about 2 hours due to this diversion. I agree with the call from the Captain. It's a pity that the poor quality of service team in LAX (probably 1-2 individuals) caused tremendous inconvenience to passengers and crew."
Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude, had us waiting forever get off the plane"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "Practically no food was served."
Cons: "Flight cancelled , no communication, the flight the next day delayed two hours and we where given four different gate numbers for the flight, walked backwards and forwards trying to find the correct gate with my children."
Cons: "Should enforce limits on carry on items which causes boarding delays and inconveniences. Some people with large personal items and backpacks and carry on take multiple storage spaces in overhead bins."
Cons: "Check-in was bad. Too few staff for too many people."
Cons: "2,5 hours delayed. Econ seats are tiny with zero legroom."
Cons: "Compared to other airlines Air Canada is just so bad. Crew are always slow. The flight never boards on time or leaves on time. I don’t think I’ve ever been on an Air Canada flight that leaves on time. It’s incredibly frustrating. The staff were rude and cold on this flight and very very slow. I usually don’t write reviews like this but honestly can’t find anything good to say about this last flight. It was just bad."
Pros: "The stewardess with the amazing figure! I didn’t use the entertainment or order food so I can’t comment on those."
Pros: "Great service friendly crew"
Pros: "The flight itself was very good The plane was quite new. Very comfortable seats and plenty of leg room with nothing obstructing the foot space. Good inflight entertainment and complimentary earbuds. Flight attendents were capable and friendly, food service better than average."
Cons: "Check-in at the Air Canada counter was chaotic, a long lineup with only one agent available to direct the crowd. She coped well considering there were multiple people asking questions at the same time. There was a small sign instructing persons who had obtained boarding passes and luggage tags to go to baggage drop but no signs or separate lanes to indicate where that was. Very disorganized. At the gate it was the same scenario. Agents at adjacent desks were calling boarding instructions for multiple flights at the same time. Our Vancouver flight was never actually announced but passengers all started lining up because the stated boarding time had passed. It was impossible to tell which flight was calling for which boarding zones and everyone was wondering out loud "what is going on here?" Once finally aboard we sat on the runway, our flight left an hour late and we missed our connecting flight in Vancouver which, I realize happens. However..."
Pros: "The flight crew went the extra mile to give good service. There were plenty of meals and snacks throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms are cramped, they are clean however. Seats are also very close together, others must get out if you are in a middle or window seat."
Pros: "Ride was comfortable and the entertainment was great even thought i slept the whole ride."
Cons: "flight delayed due to late flight attendents"
Pros: "Typical Air Canada flight. Not great but not horrible (surprisingly)"
Cons: "The entertainment systems were broken on our seats but they did give us a small discount voucher."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Delayed Flight, barely made it onto my connecting flight."
Cons: "Zone 5 boarding even after I had pre checked in online."
Cons: "No one smiles"
Pros: "Fast and strait forward boarding procedure. It was short but international flight, easy check in. Good impression from TSA work - flight departure was not from international terminal maybe that’s why?"
Cons: "Additional charges for check in bags, snacks during the flight, no headphones offered on board for entertainment units."
Pros: "One of the crewmembers (regrettably, I did not catch his name) was incredibly kind when I moved seats to accommodate a couple that wanted to sit together. He really made this flight great."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable but the row I moved to did not allow me to recline."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean plane."
Cons: "Major delays due to poor maintenance. Maintenance is done with passengers on board. No issues with inconveniencing passengers. If you call to complain and ask for compensation, I’ll hey tell you to submit an email and they will respond 3-5 weeks or longer. Will never fly Air Canada again. Will tell everyone on my social media how awful this airline is to customers."
Pros: "The friendly staff! Very accommodating and as simple as a smile goes a long way. Kiddos to Air Canada staff!"
Cons: "Someone was in my seat (and feigning sleep). Not a big problem, I just sat in another seat, but kind of uncool. Cabin crew were never aware, which is odd"
Cons: "evry thimg on time"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, old tv screen difficult to use. Awkward seating behind economy plus."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the airplane was really cold. The flight was delayed to the point where we would not have made our connection if our second flight was not delayed. The sound quality of the entertainment was very poor."
Pros: "Flew economy from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Aircraft looked like a newer Airbus A320 with the new Air Canada branding (black lettering against white fuselage). Air Canada check in process has passengers use self service kiosks first and then take the tags and luggage to the counter. The employees at check in were all very efficient and made sure the line didn't get too long. The flight left on time. Every seat had personal entertainment system, and mine worked great. The flight attendants themselves were very professional."
Cons: "The in flight magazine was water damaged and somewhat soiled (probably from prior passenger's drink). I wish the on ground cleaning crew would take the time to inspect the seat back pockets."
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and accommodating."
Cons: "They should be more thorough in the economy clad cabins to make sure that passengers have their bags put away way before we leave the gate. Flight crew hardly walked through the aisles in economy and were attending to th other cabins more."
Cons: "We had a 5 hour delayed flight. We received no notification that our flight would be delayed so we were stuck waiting on the airport for 5 hours, which forced us to cancel evening plans with friends that night because the flight landed in Vancouver at 3am the next morning and we didn't get to our Airbnb until around 4-5am. The crew seemed disorganized."
Cons: "Employees seemed somewhat disorganized. There was not enough space in front of counter for people and there luggage. I ticketing agent would yell from far down the counter "Next...Next!) and finally walk closer so people in line could see/hear them. Then, often that next customer could not get to the counter in front of the agent because of the pillars and other people were blocking them. The space was too cramped. At boarding, Instructions over the loudspeaker were not clear and the video screens contained incorrect information about boarding. At one point the agent came out and yelled at everyone to "get out of line!, we are not boarding yet". I have never seen this process handled so poorly and I fly quite a bit."
Cons: "the flight was 5 hours late"
Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."
Cons: "The landing"
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"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, pretty typical for LAX. But we also had to take a bus from the terminal to the plane over 2 miles away, which wasn't ideal."
Pros: "We made it to Vancouver"
Cons: "Aircraft was late. At least two gate changes in LA. Flight crew did not take away trash, just told us to stick in seat pockets. Entertainment system was down much of flight."
Cons: "Really, pulling me off a flight .no explanation are you serious . I am having my lawer look into my legal rights. Expecting a reply. Never in my life have I been treated so badly . I will never fly on Air Canada"
Pros: "- Air Canada reps are nice, just super unhelpful - Friendly team, but not empowered to really help and quick to pass you off to others"
Cons: "- We tried to check in online and got an error message. When we got to the airport 2 hours before our flight, we were told by customer service rep #1 to join a line. At the front of the line, same rep told us "Oh it's probably that now you need a visa." - Why not tell people when they try to check in why there is an error? The new rule went into effect in December, and we hadn't been to Canada since needing a visa. Once we had been accepted, we were passed off to another employee who couldn't figure out why he couldn't check us in. Then another, who said "I'm only helping you because your flight is delayed, the flight should have closed by now." (Not exactly comforting, and considering it took them 2 hours to help, not super helpful either.) - When we ran to the gate, the people running the gate told us that the aircraft hadn't even landed, but weren't communicative in timing, didn't update the time on the boarding screens, etc."
Pros: "Good leg space very comfortable sitting and entertainment television."
Pros: "The plane was clean & the crew was courteous"
Cons: "There was no decaf coffee or tea, very limited food to buy on board, & no free cookies, crackers or nibbles. Definitely a no frills flight!!"
Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "I'm tired of all your flights being late. Out of my last 4 flights, 3 were late. If you have to land at a domestic terminal and then come around to international-just change your flight time so people actually know when they will be later. Your movies and music are from another planet - is that because you have to include French? Not even a measley bag of peanuts. I will be flying on another airline whenever possible"
Cons: "I paid to upgrade seating and on other airlines you get priority boarding and can store your bag in the overhead bin. Not the case with air canada...not great customer experience compared to delta or united."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "Pre-boarding wait is extremely long with all the different groups. Seems you always have a problem with carry on luggage so those in Group 5 will always be forced to check-in unwillingly. Staff taking ticket is unfriendly at gate - i was YELLED at because I had a thin garment bag along with my small international carry on and purse. it was considered 3 bags .... since when does a dress inside a garment bag warrant a full other carry on? It could have folded into my carry on but the purpose of a garment bag is so you do not have to wrinkled it in your luggage. He moved me to the side and told me I needed to check it in, I was NOT allowed to hang it in the plane b/c i'm not a business passenger. WTF. After 10 min of waiting on the side I folded up my garment bag and shoved it in my purse - after another 5 min he gave me my luggage and told me to head toward the plane. Worst. Flight. Ever"
Cons: "Lavatories didn't flash properly. No tap water"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Comfy seats, awesome new movies to watch. Great staff, very helpful"
Cons: "No free snacks, I mean they came around with drinks but you had to pay for all of the food"
Cons: "Child behind me kicking seat entire time!!!"
Cons: "The food was not fantastic."
Pros: "It was good!"
Pros: "Food for purchase options and entertainment."
Cons: "Crew is so slow!!!"
