OTHER AIRLINES WOULD CHANGE YOUR FLIGHT FOR A FEE BUT ANA DID NOT!!!!!!!!!
I loved both the ground and flight crews. They're so patient and willing to accomodate us and help solve problems. I only wanted to suggest if they can give us more new or not so new movies to watch.

Pros: "Crew tried to be friendly"
Cons: "Slow to depart after boarding on time, with an eventual delay of 1 hour (deplaning was extremely slow) before we reached the baggage claim area. The wait for baggage took another half hour"
Cons: "Couldn’t print or get boarding pass for this connecting flight which was a bit annoying. Other than that, everything was amazing"

Cons: "If the seat reclined a bit more, would be nice."
Pros: "Crew amazing and food very good."
Cons: "Crew woke us up 2 hours before landing, would ha e been great to sleep longer."
Pros: "Food tasted great, flight attendants were super nice love the food holders under the seats to rest your feet"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "baggage was broken."
Cons: "I was pleased with all."
Pros: "Don't cheap out on your flights to Japan because this ANA flight from New York/JFK to Haneda was the correct way to go. Japanese-style hospitality, respect and quality of service (which is beyond the heavens) shows from check-in to landing (and even post-landing.) The in-flight meals, inspired by Japanese recipes of the Japanese destination or origin, were finely made - that goes even for Economy Class. When there was a delay that was ultimately out of their control, they made things right with post-landing arrangements. Never take any other country's airline when flying into Japan - always always ALWAYS take ANA whenever you can. (Avoid codeshares, too!!)"
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked."
Pros: "Wonderful service"
Cons: "Food was on the very bland side"
Pros: "more new movies will be better"
Pros: "I've flown with ANA before and they never fail to impress. Service is impecable, staff are nice and the new boeings are awesome. Seats can be a bit cramped but we were in economy and it's a 9 hour flight so some discomfort is expected. The 3 meals served are complimentary and very much appreciated. The entertainment system is an easy to use touch screen with great options from Hollywood and other movie sources."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful airline staff and flight attendants. Efficient boarding. Departed on time. Great in flight service."

Pros: "The most comfortable economy flight I have experienced so far. The service, food and entertainment options were all excellent. Definitely looking forward to our return flight back to YVR!"
Pros: "I liked the Service and all. Airline offered me a wheel chair since it was on a record from last flight. They escort me to the plane.and plane to my daughter at the other end."
Pros: "Ana is the best"
Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Cons: "My suitcase was "lost" in Tokyo/Narita on the way to Shanghai. Don't know what happened. Got my luggage two days later. This isn't Kayak's fault. ANA should've done something to make this right."
Pros: "Great movies!!"
Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."
Cons: "Person sitting next me passenger wanted fight with me. She told me this is her space arm rest I can not use for over 9 hours. She smelled alcohol and perfume. which made very uncomfortable bad bad"

Cons: "TSA-style pat-down at the gate in Narita before allowed to board."

Pros: "I paid an extra $150 and the seat was tiny, yes had extra leg room, but regret paying the extra $."
Cons: "They made me move 1lb into my main checked bag from my carry on. The weight for carry ons is hardly anything and they didn’t check the weight of my friends."
Cons: "My first meal was kind of burnt, and I wish they would offer a salt and pepper packets. Also, more frequent Rounds to pick up trash would be helpful"
Pros: "Service overall excellent. Attention to needs of pax."
Cons: "Food and beverage can still be improved. Aircraft configuration can be improved. Space too tight to even an average size person."
Pros: "Checked and arranged seating accordingly."
Cons: "Crews could've been more friendlier and accommodating."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and the food ran out. The entertainment did not work. Plus we were over an hour late once we finally got off the plane"
Cons: "More legroom, but what do I expect in economy?"
Pros: "Great food, and lots of leg room in economy. The flights were on time."
Pros: "This is a bit weird, but it was the first time I flew Eva economy. I've taken this route many times in business and it would take pages to go through all the things that EVA does right in business class. So I was stunned when my first time in economy was so incredibly impressive as well."
Cons: "I'm really picky and there's nothing more I could have wanted in an economy flight experience."
Pros: "We were delayed coming out of LA. Arriving in Manila, we were in the tarmac for 30-40 minutes The crew has a habit of yelling out to passengers for them to remain seated instead of approaching them to ask them to remain seated ...AS OTHER AIRLINES DO. Very off putting and shocking."
Cons: "The crew can be nicer, more gracious. Hospitality is their trade. I observed that they have a habit of calling out in aloud voice to passengers to remain seated bothered us. It is embarrassing and comical to watch. Other airlines do not do that. The crew must go and talk to them politely."
Pros: "They staffs were very friendly"
Cons: "Seating way too tight"
Pros: "Bathroom very nice. Food nice."
Cons: "Economy seats a bit too cramped."
Pros: "First time flying EVA. They made it easy!"

Pros: "Food not bad"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Great movies."
Cons: "Not so good on the television shows"
Pros: "2 free meals, attendants were very nice and ready to serve, free wine and multiple coffee and tea and drink calls. Also the flight was cheaper than most, which credits all the previous feedback provided."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Trip was pretty nice."
Pros: "the crew tried very hard to be pleasant and nice. they did well on that."
Cons: "the seats are too crowded. i couldn't eat the entrees-mystery food. i would have liked a bigger selection of movies"
Cons: "Could use salt and pepper, it was not offered."
Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."
Cons: "Serving are very poorly"
Pros: "Very hardworking and friendly cabin crew and very efficient service onboard. Lots of little finishing touches like free toothbrush/paste, eyecovers, earplugs in washrooms. Larger and better quality LCD screens in their B777-300ER plane."
Cons: "Economy seat space is tight but not different from other major airlines unless you pay extra for more leg space."
Pros: "Great flight Staff friendly"
Cons: "Lost mini suitcase (was found and delivered within 24hrs) Broken wheels on bigger suitcase"
Pros: "Nothing to like about."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade based on being star Alliance gold. Thank you"
Pros: "It was a very little late taking off, we did arrive on time. The online service was good, I got notice to check in online and was able to book my seat and select food for the flight. I prefer choosing seafood meal because it usually is good. Maybe not for breakfast. LOL Bathrooms were clean and well stocked for once and they issued blankets that were thicker and useful. Entertainment selection was good for films and TV"
Cons: "Seats are a bit worn, not as supportive. It was cooler in the cabin than I am used to. Previous flights it had been warm during the sleep period."
Pros: "Me & my wife were on Premium Economy. This was a connecting flight to Manila from Vancouver Canada. The food served was not visually appealing and very lacking in taste. The food can be improved for this sector. The food was a very far cry from EVA Air flight also on Premium Economy. Before this flight we took we took BR9 from Vancouver Canada. The Ground Agent at the boarding gate wanted us to check-in our carry-on baggage which was well within the measurements specified in the EVA Air website (23x36x56cm). My wife and I had only one carry-on each. The reason given the flight was full. I did not understand this since I could see there were lots of passengers who had carry-on baggage larger than the 23x36x56cm and more than one piece carry-on. Not sure why this female Ground Agent picked on us when there were lots more violations within her sight. Also, she was rude when we refused. Once inside the aircraft with all passengers boarded, there were lots of empty bins for carry-on baggage. The more I was not happy about this Ground Agent picking on our carry-on baggage. The more I did not understand why!"
Cons: "This is my wife & I flying with EVA Air. My wife and I have travelled with many international and domestic airlines for 38 years now since we started travelling. I’d recommend EVA Air’s Premium Economy. The seats were wider and leg room was excellent. The amenities were great especially the entertainment part. TV Screen in front of the passenger (installed behind the seat in front) was very clear. it was the same as if watching movie on an iPad."
Pros: "Liked the seats, legroom. Good value for price."
Cons: "Food could be better. Crew could be friendlier. They did their job but did not have the warmth of crew of other airlines I’ve flown."
Pros: "Everything Hello Kitty."
Cons: "Ugly uniform."
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive and efficient and nice, friendly. I spoke most with Lucy Tsai, really lovely person, I hope she's appreciated and recognized for her efforts. The aircraft was like new."
Cons: "Food just okay."
Pros: "I actually loved the whole trip. The aircraft still looked like it was brand new on the inside even though I'm sure that it has probably been in the air for a few years now. The service was great from the seemingly effortless takeoff and landing by the pilots to the flight attendants being very efficient and caring. The ambient temperature of the cabin was great. I had a wonderful experience and when I return home I will not hesitate to book with EVA again for any of my international flight needs."
Cons: "It's not really even something that I didn't like because I know learning a second language is hard any way but every once in a while when the flight attendants made announcements they would either run English words together into one word or pronounce it a little wrong but I still could understand everything that they were saying. So if I have to suggest something that is all that I can think of and it isn't even a bad thing at all. Thank you for everything!"
Pros: "The staff are nice..."
Cons: "Pork was the only option in that flight."
Pros: "The departure time at midnight seems to cut down on my jetlag."
Cons: "They could have offered more drink /water service."

Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew The time of the flights"
Cons: "Food options were narrow Online seat selection wqs not allowed"

Pros: "Great customer service, amenities and comfortable flight."
Pros: "Friendly service. The food was good!"
Cons: "Bumpy ride could also be from hazy weather."
Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Seat is too small"
Pros: "I missed the flight , the Manilla crew worked wonders the service was/is excellent.. will never go on another airline!! Told every one how great,, your staff is can not believe service like this exists !!"
Cons: "15 hours in a cold cattle cabin , the seats hurt after sitting sitting sitting for 15 hours my knees are killing me.... killing me. the plane is huge , smooth, stewardess are great, the 15 hours are torture -the master torturers love the long long flight times -15 hours to NYC from Taipei -- I am guessing a 747 uses a lot more fuel,, but has a recreation deck usually ,, we can walk around ,,, would gladly pay --MORE!! Some engine manufacrturer will get efficiency from those 4 engines, let the plane (747) run on 2 engines once airborne . just hoping as it is --the seats are c lose together , 15 hours in hell is not good 4 the body.. pls get or find a way- love your staff -- EVA is a great great airline!!"
Pros: "16 hour flight to Taipei in Business Class. Seats, service, cabin, amenity kit and bathroom were all better than Cathay and other similar airlines. Plane itself was great. Love the 777-300."
Cons: "Nothing. Was great."
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seating, and good food. Enjoyed my flight with China Airlines and will travel with them again in the future!"
Pros: "Great Food, good customer service, quick boarding/deplaning, and the return trip from MNL to TPE was almost top notch."
Cons: "My entertainment screen was not working nor could the crew get it to work."
Pros: "Friendly and smiling"
Cons: "No fruits after service for dinner"
Pros: "Everything was good, comparing with other airlines with higher price, China airline was the best"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "Movies were great. Service to accommodate us (hotels, food vouchers etc.) was great!"
Cons: "The delay... it’s no one fault but it took up a lot of people’s time. It was frustrating the domino effect of pushing the flight later. I felt terrible for those who only had two weeks and lost two days!"
Pros: "Yes, and yes"
Cons: "More new movies selection"
Pros: "I liked everything about the Flight, and Crew"
Pros: "Crew was very accomedating and friendly"
Pros: "Awesome crew on board made the long journey easy. Plenty of leg room and the food was good."
Cons: "To be honest.. everything was perfect for the price and the 12 hours in the air."
Cons: "It would be better if it was on time"
Pros: "Service & price"
Cons: "Not much legroom for economy customers, limited entertainment & food selections"
Cons: "Waiting forceherlchsir at Taipei and boarding plane took all of the 1.5 hour layover. Not very organized."
Pros: "Food was a solid ok!"
Cons: "They cycled heating and cooling during the flight, but the heating can be a little too much and make the air difficult to breathe and felt really stuffed and dry in the space."
Pros: "Like the seats, in flight entertainment and in flight staff are friendly."
Cons: "Did not like baggage fees for flying with Ice Hockey Goalie gear. Was dinged a monsterous $634 for baggage fees due to being over weight and over size on my goalie gear. Really it cant be made any smaller or lighter. THEN DINGED AGAIN for sticks as an over sized item again ! WTF ! Most other airlines label it as sporting goods and I pay the overweight fee, usually $150 CAD. Not this airline ! I could have booked another person for return flight and only added $300 to my bill ! Utter ridiculous how bad I got raped on this. Ok over weight yes. But over weith + oversize + oversize is a bit much !"
Cons: "Airplane use to fly from Taipei to Ho Chi Minh old and dirty."
Pros: "Food is awesome!"
Cons: "The seating and the earphones could have been better"
Pros: "They used a new aircraft. From Jakarta to Taipei was the worst, they used an old aircraft."
Cons: "They do not have additional new movie on board. The movies are remain the same when I flew from Honolulu to Taipei in April 2018."
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but fortunately not long layovers. Would probably upgrade my seat from economy next time for some extra leg room."
Pros: "Best long flight I've ever been on. Yummy food, leg room (I'm 5f10in), great entertainment, left on time, fast boarding and fast unboarding."
Cons: "The seat pitch is quite narrow makes plane feel crowded. Flight attendant does not pay attention to the request"
Pros: "good it was not a long flight."
Cons: "The crew was a bit negligent. They passed me when serving the food just because the aisle seat passenger next to me was served his special meal earlier, so they did not notice that the passenger at the window seat (which was me) had no tray in front of him when running the regular meal service. Isn't this sloppy !? Problem is that once they passed you, it's hard to get their attention, as they are always in a hurry, and not looking over the cabin just to check if someone needs something or wants to call on them for any reason, and there are no attendant calling buttons available. So you have to wait until they come by your seat again. Finally I got my meal with apologies 15 minutes later, but the experience was already ruined and the negative impression built.. Also, when departing from Taipei, the boarding process was a bit disorganized, compared with the one we had in Vancouver. As for as the entertainment, the LCD monitor at my seat was pretty worn out, with very poor contrast, making it difficult to watch a movie or read information. Same airline with two opposing experiences: Vancouver-to-Taipei very good, Taipei-to-Manila: poor."
Pros: "well organized boarding, very attentive crew, decent food and entertainment."
Cons: "nothing major to complain about."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Staff treatment, food, cabin pressure was off, cold temperature, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew are very nice and accommodating and professionals."
Pros: "The food, service, and seats were all great in economy. I typically fly UA and China Airline's entertainment system and seat comfort are definitely on par on this 777 when compared to UA's 787."
Cons: "I didn't like that we didn't have a free row since our flight was packed - but that's not really much of a negative."
Cons: "The lady, her name is Thi. She told so mean to me and my mom. Her service is not professional. I don't like her!!!"
Pros: "People are nice..."
Cons: "Foods are not good"
Pros: "My very first time flying china airlines and loved everything about it... food, service, comfort, etc."
Pros: "The service was great. But they didn't really cater much to vegetarians."
Pros: "If you're seated on a row with collapsible monitor that stows like a tray as opposed to a monitor on the back of the seat in front of you, then you must end your entertainment or whatever movie you're watching earlier as the plane descends. The other monitors are played right up until the plane comes to a complete stop."
Cons: "My luggage was unlocked but the combination was locked when it landed; therefore I couldn't open the luggage."
Pros: "All staff were really attentive and delivered an excellent service quickly and efficiently."
Pros: "Enough legroom & space in economy"
Pros: "The movie and game selection. Boarding process was efficient"
Cons: "The food is the worst I've had on an international flight. The price for upgrades is absurd even when the entire business class is empty. Also, I assisted a medical emergency and missed dinner which was then never given to me."
Pros: "China Air did a fine job overall. SFO TO Bali. The food was ok and the movie selection was a little short for newer stuff. But all and all for the price = good."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. Aircraft was on time."
Cons: "No beverage service before meal. No Western choices for meals."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again!"
Pros: "My seat was upgraded the first class so I received the first class service. It was excellent service and the flight was comfortable. Thank you for the great service."
Pros: "All of the staff were super helpful and friendly. Most were able to communicate in English as well. I would highly recommend requesting ahead of time a VOML (Oriental Vegetarian Meal). Although I was unsure of some of the asian vegetables used, all of the meals had a delicious flavor and always came with a side of fruit, a little desert, and a bun. For those skeptical of airplane food, this was definitely a safe bet!"
Cons: "That they do not show what zone is boarding on the TV monitor near the boarding gate, so you have to listen carefully through several translations. The entertainment system while on flight was a bit out of date (quality of the screen was a bit poor), but they did have several good viewing options. I also found that all of the planes did not have a/c controls that you can automatically adjust."
Pros: "Found a lot of new movies and foods tasted great"
Cons: "Slow to board the plane and the seat near emergency door was not very comfortable."
Pros: "The crew on ground and inflight all display the same attention to details professionalism and courtesy. Inflight food is the best, truly first rate."
Pros: "The dedication of the crew and smooth boarding process reflect the company operational processes well executed."
Pros: "No recognition or privileges given as a loyal Silver Medallion member. Poor inflight service and customer service. Last baggage arrival at the destination."
Cons: "Everything mentioned above."
Cons: "Wifi not included"
Pros: "I loved that my knees didn't touch the seat in front of me. As a tall girl and a 12hr flight that would not have been comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not recieve an itenerary or reciept of purpose. This is very frustrating because it meant that I had to search for flight times and GUESS when my flight would leave. I'm very dissatisfied."
Pros: "Flight attendants was prompt and courteous."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Cons: "My baggage was damaged on an earlier flight and China Airlines is simply not available to fix the matter. Ground staff are not their employees and they do nothing about it except pass you on to talk to people at the next destination...who are also not able to do anything."
Pros: "Cheap but much better than the Southern China airlines trip we took a couple of years ago. Airbus entertainment system worked, meals were hot, tea and beer flowed freely, seats were packed but not as tightly, restrooms stayed clean. Sit on the right side to enjoy views of Alaska and Japan coastlines and twilight fishing vessels."
Cons: "Would be nice to have pan/tilt/zoom on the front/down exterior camera feeds."
I liked always, it is really good flight
Pros: "The crew was great! Was disappointed they gave us a A340 from air Belgium instead of the 787 Dreamliner we were supposed to get."
Cons: "Boarding was tough they made us board a shuttle like the 90’s and go up stairs was really tough with kids and carry ons."
Pros: "First flight was delayed and we missed flight to Toronto"
Cons: "Departure on time"
Cons: "Give more informations if there is any problem or schedul"
Pros: "Crew and staff were amazingly friendly. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight from Newark to Warsaw was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "The aircraft, specially the seats, the crew, the pilot and the service during the whole flight"
Cons: "- Boarding: was rainy and is quite complicated when you need to take the bus; All the other difficulties were more related to the weather. However, for a ~260 EUR flight, the lack of comfort and basic food were unexpected."
Cons: "Very Intensive and very cold ventilation!"
Cons: "We had for different flights with LOT airlines and all of them were delayed. No updates were given at the gate and some announcements were only in Polish. Landing in Warsaw we had to circle around for a while because the airport was closed due to air parade."
Cons: "LOT was late on every flight. Did not miss any connections, but could not leave on-time if it was there only responsibility."
Pros: "I went from Belgrade to WAW and then to Chicago. The flight from Belgrade was delayed by almost two hrs which made out flight to Chicago delyed as well. This was my first time flying with LOT and so far so good. I think the flights from WAW are delayed bcz of the other flights coming into WAW are delyed and since there are only one international flight a day they wait for these flights to arrive so they can take off. This is what happened in my case. The crew was very nice. I traveled with two small children and they were very helpful. I would def flight with LOT again"
Cons: "There were no coffee being offered or kids snackes"
Pros: "Brand new plane, very smart albeit plasticy and clunky. Professional staff. Very helpful when I had a specific personal request at the booking office. Flight crew were not constantly trying to force us to buy things or making announcements every 5mins like some budget airlines I could name. Flight was 30mins early so no problems there."
Cons: "Warsaw Airport is terrible. Not enough seats in the departure longes. Not enough choice for shops. Not enough toilets for the volume of passengers."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Late boarding, late arrival. No apology"
Cons: "I bought my inlaws tickets with a shorter layover and it was horrible. It took them ‘much longer to get home. There was no plane waiting for them in Budapest and they got re-routed to Vienna. Which then took them to krakow. They had to take off their luggage everytime they got off the plane and they are 80 years old. There were no escalators or elevators. The airlines lost one of their suitcases and promised it the next day and they have not received it yet. Horrible flight."
Cons: "Still waiting for our luggage two hours after deplaning. The luggage has not been unloaded from the plane. Hundreds of people still waiting This is unacceptable"
Pros: "They had a good selection of movies."
Cons: "Food was terrible. If you’re flying to America, serve American style meals. I missed my connecting flight because we were delayed by 45 minutes but Polish Airlines didn’t provide a hotel voucher so I had to pay for a hotel out of pocket. Rude flight attendants and overall, very uncomfortable experience. I will pay the difference and fly SWISS next time."
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "Tv is very difficult to see at that distance. Poor choices of films."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was as expected. Luggage arrive safely and on time (was a little worried it would not show, because online checkin said I had to pick up luggage and recheck before flight) (Virgin tagged it to go all the way through). So did not gav any issue."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late. No food service or entertainment for this flight, but was as expected."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Calling the trip 'business class' is simply a bad lie. While it is common in Europe to give this dirty nasty lie do not mistake this flight to a 'business class'. It is simply that you get same seats and spacing as in the other torture chamber known as "economy" which I call cattle class (I suspect they would not let them fly cattle in those conditions). This lie is based on leaving the middle seat empty. Otherwise teh torture is the same. In short I hope someone will sue the SOB that invented this concept and that was allowed to call this 'business class'. It is nothing short of a fraud."
Pros: "Staff was great and responsive"
Pros: "The usual cramped travel but it was fine. Good movies"
Cons: "Somewhere Ipad disappeared from luggage we had checked."
Pros: "Plane is comfortable"
Cons: "Crew is not very friendly. Security personnel downright rude"
Pros: "Good basic flight. Noticeably less leg room than other flights. Flight staff were pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half. Liked the Minsk airport though."
Cons: "Shitty service on board"
Pros: "Appreciate the heads up on flight changes"
Pros: "Since we lost our second plane due to an emergeny on the first flight, the airline put us on a nice hotel to spend the night and got us new tickets to our final destination."
Cons: "There were not many flights available so we had to stop in Stokholm and then fly to Oslo."
Cons: "BROKEN LIGHT! I wish I had some tape or even a bandaid to block that annoying light- did not sleep at all"
Pros: "Very timely and organized."
Cons: "We did have to sit on the tarmac for about 1/2 hour upon arrival in Chicago."
Cons: "Adding a checked bag was complicated and difficult. Website was hard to use and had to add bag at airport through reservation desk, not at check in."
Pros: "On time and a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm; a bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "1. I was never told my ticket didn't include a free checked bag. I checked twice on LOT's website and it said I was allowed one. When I got to the airport at Krakow, the less than professional staff told me that my ticket was the kind that didn't include. I said I was never given the option to get a ticket with/without a bag for free and they basically told me I was lying. I didn't feel like arguing and paid for the bag. Kayak didn't mention or made me aware of my "kind" of ticket. Either Kayak makes consumers aware of this or LOT shouldn't be posting their flights on Kayak. 2. I flew Eurolot, "A partner of LOT" and not LOT. It should also be CLEAR what it is one is flying."
Pros: "Flowers in the bathrooms."
Cons: "Unhelpful crew, bad food, no complimentary wine."
Cons: "Delayed a lot in Warsaw airport."
Pros: "Flew from Cracow via Warsaw to Venice. Short flights. Absolutely stunning views (sunny day) of mountains."
Cons: "Ungodly early start from Cracow then 4 hours layover in Warsaw with absolutely nothing to do. UGH. Food and entertainment is nonexistant on LOT European flights. Onetime snack and basic drink service (no apple or orange juices). Oh, and use of propeller airplanes should be forbidden on commercial flights. We are in jet era, aren't we???"
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment were of good quality"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 min; after landing the plane was sitting on the field forever; during descent, my ears started aching, and I think I got some kind of vestibular system damage, possibly from an overly fast descent. Not good."
Pros: "The 787 Dreamliner was nice, and the business class seats are roomy. And the ticket was priced right!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage in the outbound direction and no-one appeared to care. When I called the number that they provided frequently no-one answered. Even when I finally got through, no-one could provide me ANY information as to the whereabouts of my bag. It finally showed up on the last day of my stay, but it was delivered to another hotel (which I only figured out after about 10 phone calls). Also, they offer perhaps the worst in-flight video selection I have ever seen."
Pros: "Totally uneventful is the best way to fly."
Cons: "I can think of no additions unless inflight massages and foot rubs are options;)"
Pros: "LOT was very helpful in rescheduling my flight over the phone."
Cons: "The flight was severely delayed out of Chisinau, for unexplained reasons. I expect the airport was to blame. Because of this I didn't take either flight to Warsaw or Chicago and rebooked a flight for the next day."
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Complimentary snacks & water, polite"
Pros: "This was my first time in business class. The main flight was on a 787 dream liner. It was an amazing experience. Seat was very flexible. Was even able to morph into a bed. Service was a+ felt like I was in a 5 star restaurant"
Pros: "Comfy seats, entertainment, 2 in flight meals and very attentive flight attendants. They also supply blankets, pillows and headsets. Very smooth flight from JFK into Warsaw."
Pros: "Quick and friendly service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, food was very good and services were satisfactory."
Cons: "The flight attendants spoke only polish, it was hard to understand the announcements."
Pros: "Online Boarding process was easy and pleasant."
Cons: "They asked me for luggage price separately because they told, in your ticket there was NO luggage specifications !! So I had to pay three times more than the original price of the ticket at the airport."
Pros: "Fast flight Social distancing A whole row to almost every person"
Cons: "The vegetarian meals, they were not enjoyable, we actually couldn’t eat them. I wish we had not gotten vegetarian meals as the regular breakfast was a choice between pancakes or omelet with fresh fruit, which where both vegetarian. They need to make a difference between vegetarian and vegan."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, has good entertainment program. Uncomplicated easy boarding."
Cons: "Food for 9 h wish to be better: dinner was cold (you could feel that chicken was warmed in microwave, but pasta was just taken from fridge), breakfast was pathetic. In last seats to many overhead compartments was secured for equipment or occupied by crew"
Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."
Pros: "The zone system seems to work well for boarding and the cabin crew on my flight to London were superb, helpful and polite to myself and others, despite a few impatient passengers."
Pros: "The flight was on time check in was simple and quick Staff on board friendly and professional Inflight movies fab Plenty of room on seats clean plane"
Cons: "Nothing all great"
Pros: "I love this flight. Great airplane and great staff. Air Canada international >> air Canada domestic."
Cons: "Ran out of food.."
Pros: "We got there without crashing."
Cons: "Checking in and luggage drop off was chaos. One useless staff person failed to tell people where to line up to drop bags off until the end. She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."
Pros: "Will use again"
Cons: "Airline food has always been poor no matter which airline you travel. Be more liberal with the drinks trolley."
Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Pros: "Good leg room. Staff friendly and helpful. Really great flight."
Cons: "Horrible customer service from check in through to the flight attendants. Needed to download app on my phone for an international flight in order to watch movies. Was very unimpressed with the experience."
Pros: "It was average"
Cons: "My connections were tight from the start. Then when the flight from Vancouver was late leaving, it caused me to come very, very close to missing my CVG connection. I had to find & clear customs before I could even go to my gate. Getting thru customs was like being in a maze. I showed my passport 4 times in the process & finally someone helped me to fill out the electronic form. I made it to my gate in the nick of time just as they were ready to close the door. They radioed ahead to let 2 more people on that plane. Then I get on and someone is sitting in the seat that I previously purchased. The flight attendant didn't make them move either. Air Canada's practices suck! I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No TV monitors and food was bad"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."
Cons: "Air Canada offers this flight DAILY. Yet somehow the boarding was the most excruciating tedious I’ve had to endure. Passengers who needed assistance boarding seemed to have to deal with haphazard organisation, and the fact that they seemed surprised so many people brought carry-on luggage that the bins filled up is laughable. Changed my return flight to Alaska Air."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by 45 minutes which made me miss my connecting flight. I asked the flight attendants if they could help me get to the front of the plane to see if I could catch my connecting flight and they wouldn't help me. Due to this I had to wait over 4 and a half hours at the airport wheee another 350 people were waiting for accommodations. I was in the airport until 4:30 in the morning because there weren't enough air cansas representatives. In addition, they were working really slowly because they kept getting up to chat with eachother."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
Pros: "Clearing immigration in Vancouver is very convenient"
Cons: "Food choices are limited and expensive."
Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"
Pros: "I liked the organized boarding process."
Cons: "Rouge Flight entertainment does not even come close to any other carriers entertainment system. Additionally, if you have a PC your're out of luck. It only works with IOS. Funny, it took me over an hour to find this out prior to the flight. The ground crew were all clueless if I could use my PC. I could have used my Smart Phone but it's kinda on the small side to watch a full length movie and drain my battery to 0. The Air Canada website was equally not helpful. I had to purchase their Ipad rental for $10 Canadian Dollars in order to watch a movie. Funny, they only had maybe 12-15 movies to choose from. Additionally, the bathrooms were disgusting and had broken parts everywhere. Flight was filthy. Looks like their just trying to scramble turning their flights around. I felt sorry for the people waiting in Honolulu for their flight back to Vancouver. Shame on you Air Canada. Time to upgrade your fleet please. You need to have better cleaning crews and definitely upgrade your Rouge Player system to accept PC's."
Pros: "Overall very very good - could offer more water throughout flight."
Cons: "Pressed the service bell mutiple over 30 minutes, no one came. Had to get out of my seat and walk to the back of the plane where I found all the attendants having a chat. Not even a sorry from them."
Cons: "Customs detained my girlfriend and I for an hour causing us to supposedly miss our flight. We spoke to a Air Canada Rep and they told us our flight had left and they couldn't hold it for us. That is fine but they said they would not provide us with a hotel for missing this. Ok that is there policy but we ran to the terminal E95, for our Flight to Portland which had actually had not left and they were actually holding it for another person. So Air Canada lied about our flight leaving and that there was not another one till the next day. Overall I will never go to this airport nor will I use Air Canada ever again."
Cons: "The flight attendants were jerks. Why can't I listen to my headphones before takeoff? Because of the safety speech? Are deaf people not allowed to fly? I was asked to take my headphones off during the safety speech, which I did. I put them back on after the speech and was yelled at. The lady in front of me had a dog. The lady across from me was talking on her cell phone. And the kids behind me were playing games on their iPad with no headphones and the sound on. No one said anything to them. Screw this airline."
Pros: "Food ok crew and staff very helpful"
Pros: "screen and interface"
Cons: "back of seat/head rest uncomfortable, average food in very small quantities films not refreshed fast enough, same in and out flights"
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The flight was good and the attendants on it were nice. Wasn't too uncomfortable and in flight entertainment was pretty decent."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour which in itself is okay as I understand flights get delayed and these things happen but the way in which the staff controlled the situation was horrible. They made multiple announcements making it sound like certain groups should go to the counter to be boarded (children, people needing assistance etc..) yet when these groups of people showed up at the counter the staff acted irritable saying they would need to wait their turn and that they havent even started boarding yet. This led to massive confusion and a huge pile up of people at the counter."
Pros: "Aircraft was very comfortable and up to date"
Cons: "Both dinner and breakfast were so bad as to be a joke. Tasteless chicken on pasta with a miserable little salad for dinner. Breakfast far worse, the 'continental breakfast' being a slice of banana loaf or something similar in plastic film and a pathetically small yoghurt. Crew didn't even serve pour row coffee or tea, totally overlooked us. My next flight was with SAA to Johannesburg - infinitely better food and attitude. Not that I expect this eeview to make any imnpression on Air Canada. THey are beyond help and frankly I don't care as I won't fly with them again."
Pros: "Comfortable, well maintained aircraft. Good entertainment. Friendly crew. Boarding process was well conceived. They separated seating zones into different queues, and turned back people who attempted to board out of order."
Cons: "Breakfast was underwhelming for an international flight. Dinner was just average. The crew seemed to have trouble responding to things like...people using restrooms late during the descent, passengers making themselves a little too "at home" and thereby disturbing their neighbors, and repeated chimes due to an errant elbow on a call button...the little things. They are things you don't notice when a crew is highly attentive, as you find on Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, or Air New Zealand. The crew were friendly, but not quite in charge."
Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything I liked, other than the plane arriving and leaving on time."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment is a joke, it's a 14 hour flight so why are there only 3 episodes of any tv show? The food was inedible, and beverages were limited to 3 choices coffee, water or juice. I was trying to sleep on the plane but every time a flight attendant would walk past me they would run into me (and I was very much within my seat) and wake me up. They also woke me up to ask if I wanted food twice. The seats were so uncomfortable. I'm an able bodied 20 something and if I am in this much physical pain from flying I can't imagine what an elderly person must feel like after flying Air Canada. The pillow that was provided gave me no comfort what so ever, it wasn't think enough to even offer some back support."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight - had the luxury of a row to myself in economy. Food and drink service was great and the crew were very friendly. The 787 is a pleasure to fly on."
Cons: "More movies and TV - flew with Air Canada 6 times in 6 weeks so I was starting to run out of entertainment options."
Pros: "There was a decent selection of in flight movies"
Cons: "-the aux plug for the headphones wasn't working properly. Resulting in me having to hold the headphones in place the entire flight -the first time the attendant went by with the food selections for purchase she walked right past me and went on to run out of food by the time I finally got her attention. -I had to ask the people behind me several times to please stop their child from kicking the back of my seat. Although the attendant made eye contact me one of the times she made no intervention on my behalf. - my return flight was in short: neglectful and arduous. I probably wouldn't recommend Air Canada after a flight like that."
Pros: "Excellent flight"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats being marked @ $ 16 and $42 upto 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
Pros: "Crew was nice and very helpful.. Nice selection of movies.."
Cons: "Food could be improved.. no flavor and it looked over cooked.. Drinking cups could be switched to paper cups.. or recycled one's.. Packaging and overall rubbish could also be reduced. 777 seats were to narrow.. bigger seats are a must for such long flights. Internet access could be free.. with a limit of course.."
Pros: "I sat with my husband by the window."
Cons: "First the plane had a delay for an hour, then additional two more hours of delay because we had to wait for another plane with passengers had to connect to the flight. Once we were boarded, we waited another hour for more passengers with luggage issues. After the plane took off, I was happy that the crews continued to offer us water, then I found out that there was no meal plan for the flight. I was hungry after all the unexpected wait plus the 4.5 hours flight to Chicago. I feel that the airline could offer passengers a meal after all the unexpected delays."
