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."

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: "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."

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: "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."

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."

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!"

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,"

Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
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, arrived even half an hour early on the way back. Staff in flight and checking in at YVR amazing. Overall, good spacing for knees between rows, staff awesome, flight on time sharp... great experience so far!"
Cons: "Staff at checking in kiosk at LAS wasn't so friendly."
Pros: "Overall everything"
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."

Pros: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"

Pros: "Crew was excellent especially Taylor"
Cons: "This flight is always late to leave and always gate changes. Maybe the time should be permanently changed. I have caught this flight 3 times and each time the same issue"
Pros: "Soft voice of flight attendants with such an early flight."
Cons: "Paying for food. Paying for luggage. Movies in a loop, not on demand. Missed beginnings of all movies I watched."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."

Pros: "It was fast, friendly and over all made me impressed."
Pros: "Smooth, cost effective and friendly staff."

Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not so much entertainment like music or movies to watch. Why do you need to download the west jet apps just to get something to watch doesn't make any sense..."
Pros: "Check in was fast, on time, landed early, entertainment worked"
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was shipshape and organized. Every crew membe r we talked with seemed knowledgeable and friendly. Good value."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Hour+ delay"
Cons: "You had to have a computer / cell phone to see the movies. In their next fleet of aircraft Westjet should go back to big screens or back of seat screens and have the computer option there as well."
Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."
Cons: "6 hours delay"
Pros: "The flight was pretty good specially during landing"
Pros: "Check-in agent in Kelowna was nice as were gate agents. The seats were fine even though we were in the back of the small plane. Flying in and out of Kelowna brought back memories of flights long ago: no jet ways and prop planes. It was nice they had a ramp rather than stairs."
Cons: "Short flight so only water to drink and pretzels or cookies if desired."
Pros: "On time, smooth and amazing views of snow capped mountains."
Pros: "Great service! Crew was very friendly and happy. Flight was online and landed early"
Cons: "No screen on the back of the chairs"
Cons: "Was too hot"
Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."
Pros: "When I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to AA failure at the gate. The woman at the westjet gate was super friendly and kind to me. She gave me a good seat and meal vouchers to get me through the night. Unlike AA who could not care less."
Cons: "I missed my flight but that not your fault."
Pros: "Crew did their best."
Cons: "Lost time on a short holiday by the delay and by the lost luggage. Shopping took time and cost me money."
Pros: "Got me to Vancouver on time"
Cons: "Economy seating really sucks"
Cons: "Food options"
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: "Left on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "When checking in, it indicated a smaller plane. I was not in a window seat and I had to check my baggage (and wait at the baggage terminal)."
Pros: "Captain asked passengers not making close connections to allow passengers with connections to deplane first was very helpful."
Cons: "Flight left late and arrived late making my connection in Philadelphia for a flight to Budapest a very close call."

Cons: "The crew was a little late"
Pros: "Comfortable flight except for limited leg room. Great movie selection."
Cons: "Poor leg room for tall people"
Pros: "Not using kayak"
Cons: "Kayak booked me the worst itinerary in the history of air travel!"
Pros: "Food was good. Staff was polite."
Cons: "Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified."
Cons: "I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Not enough coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great"
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "You guys lost our luggage!"
Pros: "All good, except poor prep on food"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "That AA does not follow my preferences. I was assigned a middle seat even though my preference is an aisle seat."
Pros: "Good connection"
Pros: "First Class was nice but not worth the extra cost - my opinion."
Cons: "First class, besides bigger seats and more foot room, was not worth doubling the cost of coach."
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Cons: "Maintenance problems, late departures, uncomfortable airlines"
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."
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: "Great crew with an attention to details!"
Cons: "40 min late and a bumpy ride the whole time but good flight"
Pros: "nice flight - nonstop got us exactly where we want"
Cons: "not a big selection on food... just cookies (although good it would be nice to have some selection)"
Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hours for mechanical issues and they were not able to do anything. Since booking with Kayak neither Alaska airlines or American Airlines would help in getting us an earlier flight and both airlines said they couldn't help after repeated calls. Won't be booking any American Airlines flights throug Kayak again."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly despite turbulence and bad weather, thanks to the crew."
Cons: "Seating is even more cramped than I'm used to, and everything outside of a drink and a biscuit is extra money."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Staff was excellent like always."
Cons: "No outlets on the plane. My flight was suppose to have WiFi but it didn't work."
Pros: "Flight landed 40 minutes early"
Cons: "Due to early landing, no gate available. We literally rode all over the tarmac making room for other planes to maneuver around...and then did not get to a gate until 15 minutes past ORIGINAL arrival time. Also, I booked a premium seat, but there was no more leg room than any other seat. No meal/snack for purchase was even offered."
Cons: "Older A321 plane, WIFI horrible and no seat back entertainment as on newer A321s"
Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"
Pros: "Boarding and baggage."
Cons: "This was a long non-stop flight from Miami to Denver. Over 4 hours. So I took the plunge and bought first class. I always fly first class on any flight over 2 hours. However, I was disappointed. The food was so-so and insufficient. The drinks were also not enough. The video displays were small and poorly located for the movie. The seats seemed uncomfortable. All and all I have come to expect a better experience from American Airlines in First Class. The ticket was expensive."
Pros: "Getting through security was a lot better than I thought. Also, I had plenty of room and the overall ride was smooth."
Cons: "I just wish that there was a little more room and easier ways to earn miles and entry into the lounge."
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "No complaints. Keep up the good work, American!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that food has to be purchased. I liked it much better when the food was included in the price, as it still lives in the major international overseas airlines."
Pros: "Excellent, friendly attention from flight attendants."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
Cons: "The wifi entertainment stopped working for me half way through the flight"
Pros: "Wi fi did not work."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway after landing because the gate is occupied."
Pros: "Getting the flights was easy, used kayak. Tickets ultimately were purchased through priceline."
Cons: "Flight was a round trip flight and American Airlines (or American Eagle, which is it?) changed my flights and I went from an hour layover and arriving at the time I desired to instead a three and a half hour layover and arriving after midnight."
Pros: "No surveys"
Cons: "No surveys"
Pros: "New plane, fair legroom, comfortable temperature, a couple nice FAs, couple mediocore ones."
Cons: "IFE completely broken, mediocre apology. Sat on ramp 15 min after push. Zero explanation or status update. Typical small pretzel or cookie and soft drink."
Pros: "The Denver airport is beautiful"
Cons: "I will never fly AA again - see below"
Pros: "Love the movies!!!"
Cons: "Passengers are allowed to take too much on the plane, which makes boarding & getting off take WAY TO LONG. If American would follow Southwest and allow 1 free bag, this problem would end. E"
Pros: "On time, friendly and helpful staff at airport and on aircraft"
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: "Seemed to be more leg room than I recall from past flights."
Pros: "That they give you ear phones"
Cons: "Delay 1 hour"
Pros: "Everything was great. The food was tasty and the flight was comfortable."
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "It was a safe landing"
Cons: "The flight was late The movies are not current There wasn't even a bag of peanuts Basically no service from the flight attendents"
Pros: "Staff was extremely nice and the plane itself was comfortable- loved the leg ."
Cons: "Flight to Vancouver: Upon arrival I was told that the luggage from my flight 557 was misplaced and put on plane 775. I had to wait an extra two hours for luggage in customs. I was late to the wedding festivities in Whistler that evening. Flight to Los Angeles: The plane was 30 minutes late. We board the plane and discover there is a sensor issue. We wait 30 minutes. then another 30 and then another 30 as more and more news comes about that the problem is not fixable. We de-board and have to wait in a long line at the complete opposite end of the airport. By 1:00am the line has barely moved and all hotel vouchers has been used. I have to spend the evening on a bench in the airport as a single woman- not comforting. I missed important meetings the next day as I am on the flight home. I understand accidents happen but it happened on both my way there and back. My flight home should have been refunded as it put me in a very insecure position and effected my work performance."
Pros: "Smiley and kind crew. Smooth take off and landing in both ways. Clean and organized craft. Being on time. Could not be better. Thank you Air Canada"
Cons: "I am disappointed that all air lines cut the meals"
Cons: "Child behind me kicking seat entire time!!!"
Cons: "The food was not fantastic."
Pros: "There is an on-board entertainment system. Stewards are very courteous. Things are very on-time. Decent selection of drinks."
Cons: "The entertainment system is pretty antiquated. The movies and shows on are pretty dated and also the touch screen is not very user friendly or sensitive. The USB port didn't work either on the outbound or inbound routes."
Pros: "Boarding and customs were fine, and the crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Way too little food for the flight. My teenage daughter was starving by the time we got to London. If you are flying Air Canada, bring along extra food/snacks."
Pros: "The crew is always very kind and welcoming"
Cons: "The flight was delayed without any notification. 1. I could have arrived at a later time at the airport as not to wait so long. 2. It cost me a taxi because I missed the train as planned."
Pros: "It was good!"
Pros: "Food for purchase options and entertainment."
Cons: "Crew is so slow!!!"
Pros: "Great flight."
