Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "New Zealand Air staff were friendly, informative and courteous throughout the entire flight! I was floored by their service and by what was offered. They even worked to arrange for people to move around (some were packed 4 to a row, but there was plenty of space throughout the craft)."
Cons: "The flight was not on time There was no food on the plane for us even though we paid “full service carrier” price There were very few free movies!!! This is horrible. We wished we’d flown with Jetstar - lack of everything like with air New Zealand but at least the price would be much lower!"
Cons: "It was over $450 to try and change the short segment fligt from Christchurch to Auckland. I could have bought a new ticket for 1/2"
Pros: "Very spacious seats and good entertainment system. Two meals provided. Good blankets provided with pillows. Spacious and clean bathroom."
Cons: "My usb charging plug didn’t work and I wish they sent me an email in advance or told me upon check in what the requirements were that I would have to show upon boarding. I was not prepared to show them my follow on flight schedule (leaving NZ) but I would have been prepared if I had known in advance"
Pros: "The service was fantastic"
Cons: "The plane was very cold inside they need keep the cabin warner"
Cons: "Is it possible to build in a way to tilt the seat bottom up at the front a bit so that when the back is reclined you don'get as sore a bum, and you don't slide forward as much. The seatback recline and headrest were very good."
Pros: "Everything ! Staff was awesome , food was great and hi-tech plane with its entertainment consoles . Touch button options for ordering drinks , food , movies, chatting with other seat passangers , Wow! Blew my mind . We left on time and landed on time too. We had premium economy seats - felt like business class other than reclining level of the seats. Pretty good value!!"
Pros: "Best inflight experience on economy!"
Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"
Pros: "Staff were lovely and food good ."
Cons: "Very cramped in window seat, quite claustrophobic really. Not a comfortable 11hr flight."
Cons: "We were not told that we had to buy meals and drinks ahead of time?! We had no food for an 8 hour flight and couldn't even buy a soft drink?! We were on an outdated plane leased plane from EVA Air and there were maybe 10 movies to choose from? Also, my reading light was broken. Not the level of care that I've come to know from Air NZ and really disappointed."
Pros: "Staff and seating"
Cons: "Paying for movies on a long trip really stingy ☹"
Pros: "Good seat, very pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment so can't score that. Basic snacks"
Pros: "Great flight with wonderful service."
Cons: "We did not receive Food and entertainment because the website was not clear that you have to pay extra for these things"
Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The plane was actually comfortable! The food was complimentary and very tasty. The entertainment was endless!"

Cons: "Cold air blasting for 8 hours."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "The Auckland airport is the closest I have ever been to burning in hell."
Pros: "There was a blanket, pillow, and headphones on my seat when I arrived."

Pros: "Friendly prompt service!"
Pros: "Great food (most airlines do not serve any), great entertainment system, & cleanliness is superb."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold. I had to wear a jacket most of the flight."

Cons: "Air NZ are, like everyone else, packing more people in a plane: 10 across in economy, where it used to be 8. No upgrade option I could exercise, even though I've got plenty of miles and do this trip every 6 months, because of the fare class I booked through Kayak."
Pros: "So many complimentary items such as food, drinks, and even alcohol. The most professional crew I've ever seen."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment good"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "I like SkyCouch."
Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"
Cons: "Economy was too squished. Hard to eat with people next to you."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Comfortable, Clean & Friendly Service. Loved the fun saftey video. Best flight I've been on by far."
Pros: "Very nice experience --- probably my best experience in economy."
Cons: "Boarding started a little later than scheduled."
Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment and two of the fight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I didn't care for the family that was surrounding us from all angles; they were constantly in and out of their seats visiting one another while pulling, kicking, and opening and closing the tray tables over and over again. I didn't care for one of the unpleasant flight attendants as well."
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "I payed $50.00 USD on a seat so I would have a bigger seat. However, when I got into the plane, the lady that was going to be seating next to me asked me if I could change my seat with her husband; which was a regular seat. In order to avoid an awkward 12 hour flight, I agreed to change my bigger seat for a smaller seat. I felt disappointment that Air New Zealand separates parties and leaves room for uncomfortable situations. I really did not know what to do in this scenario, I paid for that seat but was in a way forced to give it a away without any refund in order to avoid 12 hours seating with some stranger's wife."
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."
Cons: "For coach good food, good leg room and free premium drinks."
Pros: "Air New Zealand provided the best service Iʻve had in a while!"
Pros: "I have not flown international in a long time. It was confortable and entertainment was great. The only thing I did not like is that with New Zealand air one can only check in 1 bag for free. We stayed in NZ for 18 days. The other airlines let you check in 2 bags. For an international flight 2 bags is only fair. Thanks."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat back did not recline, free still water not available on touch screen ordering"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service"
Pros: "Premium Economy is worth it on long flights, especially if they're overnight flights!"
Pros: "We think Air New Zealand is by far the best airline we've ever flown on. Service, food, entertainment were all superlative"
Pros: "I was able to watch the entire Game of Thrones Season Six on the flight to Vancouver, and catch up with The Walking Dead on the return flight."
Cons: "The menu was poorly planned with very little fresh raw salad . The beef choice had potato salad and potato in the hot meal."
Cons: "People allowed to bring on too much carry on that will not fit so we all wait in the aisle behind them . Dumb."
Pros: "Liked just about everything. Paid extra for upgraded Economy seats but it was worth it. Seats 35 A & B. Flight both ways very smooth and flight crew very accommodating. Have already recommended New Zealand Air to all my friends."
Cons: "Some of the crew were a bit pushy"
Pros: "Sandwich was tasty. Got a whole row to myself, in an otherwise packed flight. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Sandwich was pricey. Got glared at and eyeballed, for having a whole row to myself. LOL"
Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."
Pros: "The crew was terrific"
Cons: "The long delay was miserable. Although we would rather be on aircraft that was running like it should. We were dead at that point in our journey and the long delay was very difficult."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Pros: "Staff/Crew were all very friendly. Plane was clean and air temperature was comfortable."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable! NO cushion = a very sore bottom, especially on an almost 6 hour flight. VERY disappointed in the entertainment. This airline expects everyone to have a device to play their downloadable entertainment or else pay to rent a device. This is horrible for such a long flight, when you happen to be one of those people who do not have a device for this. I will not fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "The logo on the plane"
Cons: "No snacks , no tv . slow flight"
Pros: "The flight from hell is over. I've had better jumps from a C-130. At least I didn't bounce as much and the Army never nickel and dimed us for everything."
Cons: "Boarding? Alaska Airline had a 4 hour lay over. Crew? Ask "Chad" a question and when he's done joking around and serving 6 other people, he may get to you. Comfort? You have to pay for leg room. Otherwise your knees are in the back of the seat in front of you. Food? What food? They offered trail mix. You have to buy the cheese platter. After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death they landed on one set of wheels, then bounced two more times."
Pros: "I loved the comfort of my seat. It was easy boarding and getting off the flight."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was the attitude of one of the crew members. They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something."
Pros: "I'll let you know after we get on the one they pushed us to. Completely unacceptable service."
Cons: "We don't think that we will be flying an airline with such poor management teams in place again."
Pros: "Everything,food,drinks,and service"
Pros: "Flight attendant were super nice and friendly"
Pros: "the flight was so short that nothing mattered but it was still a good flight."
Pros: "From check-in to boarding to in-flight hospitality, Alaska Airlines provided to notch service. They're unequivocally my favorite airline."
Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Need to start earlier with pre boarding. This caused a back up bcz an elderly couple had not pre boarded earlier. They were very frail and needed a lot of help. Perhaps they cannot hear the announcement. Keep them close to the gate. Food is pricy, poor variety, and skimpy"
Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and personable. Food was excellent."
Pros: "On time, quick boarding, no turbulence, easy check in.. Very Smooth process overall"
Cons: "It was freezing cold !"
Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants"
Pros: "Convenient. On time. Polite service. Easy to book."
Cons: "No meal service is fine. But serving meals a la carte for extra money and other add on services for additional charges is similar to Ryanair. And Ryanair is much much cheaper fares."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and helpful. Taking care of everyone, and helping pacify some kids !"
Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"
Pros: "The ONLY thing I liked was my seats. Closer to the main door. The faster I get off this plane the faster my vacation starts. Maybe your employees need a vacation too!"
Cons: "The stewardess were quit rude made the whole experience horrible thanks Alaskaairline"
Cons: "the fold out table was not accessible because they seated someone too big for his seat next to me. There were no other available seats. I paid for extra comfort but was not able to enjoy it;"
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "The seats are too tight. I'm 5ft. 2 inches and even for me it's just not comfortable."
Cons: "I don't particularly care for the cookies they hand out."
Pros: "Courteous crew, short flight, free drink, space still available in overhead compartment for my item, although boarded last"
Cons: "Other passenger seated in my seat had to move when I boarded, leak of water between inner& outer window panes Loose fixed wing bottom airflow closest to fuselage wiggled on takeoff& landing"
Pros: "Just a shout out to a very good flight crew!"
Cons: "Entertainment was limited, but enough to get by, and appreciated."
Pros: "Very pleasant trip. Everything went very smooth. Will fly again with you."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board the plane were amazing and I'm sure equally as frustrated as the passengers. The gates were mixed up at the airport. We were told we had to move gates and would be delayed one hour. One hour turned into two and just before noon they told us to rush boarding. If we didn't take off by noon the pilots would time out. They timed out and we had to deplane. Alaskan was not telling us very much information and we were again delayed until 2:15. We started boarding at about 1:35 and we sat on the plane until well after 2:15. Apparently there were mechanical issues and again we had to deplane. We, as were all of the other passengers, were extremely upset. They couldn't tell us what was going to happen. A supervisor came out and basically said I can refund you, you can rebook, or you can wait it out. There were limited spaces on flights for the next day. Finally, at 4:30, they boarded us again and took off at 5. The whole experience was extremely upsetting. Overall, we were delayed 7 and a half hours. We missed a whole day of vacation and lost money, with very little remorse or compensation from Alaskan airlines."
Pros: "Flight was smooth for most of it. Free Mai tai at the end was a bonus!"
Cons: "It may have been because I was next to an engine... :) but I couldn't hear them on the speaker. I missed all the announcements."
Pros: "Too cold!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "It was disappointed that I paid to upgrade to first class and there was a cat next to me... I bonded with a group of other passengers over our cat allergys. Thankfully there was another passenger giving out beadryl. many people sneezing the whole flight. The passenger with the cat was nice, giving chocolate to all the flight attendants. At one point he had the cat out on His lap petting it... I was waken from my sleep with my eyes swollen shut and sneezing. you will see other complaints about this flight... As for me, I want my upgrade refunded. I did not eat, I did not watch movies.... I did not get to enjoy my flight."
Pros: "Service, seats, boarding time and lack of delays"
Cons: "I wasn't aware that in flight entertainment options were available in tablet form."
Pros: "Charging station in the seat"
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable..."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable"
Cons: "I have never been asked to leave a plane. They made some outrageous claims with no real reason. Saying I smelled like acohol so that was reason enough to remove me from the plane. I was happy smiling and talking with other people in the row about families. I gave no reason for them to remove me from the flight. Not one time during boarding or waiting at the gate was I talked to about behavior or anything that might be reasons for removal off the plane. Crappy customer services I don't think they handled this very well at all."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Crew members weren't too friendly or helpful"
Pros: "The boarding process was good... and we got in early."
Cons: "The food was expensive. And no entertainment system."
Pros: "A very mice crew, comfortable and nice fligjt."
Pros: "the friendliness of the stewards returning home to Hawaii."
Pros: "As always the boarding process was a breeze and the crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "This was a red eye flight and it was FREEZING on the airplane. They did not have blankets or pillows to hand out like other airlines and the temperature was way to cold in this plane. In felt sorry for people who didn't wear shoes or bring a jacket. I had both and I felt like I was frozen solid. They really need to have some sort of temperature control in the cabin to make passengers comfortable. This really made my flight unpleasant and I did not get any rest at all."
Pros: "The flight attendants on flight 833 from PDX to Honolulu were memorable. They genuinely looked as if they were happy to be there and enjoyed serving us. They went above and beyond to make sure we were all comfortable and made many rounds to ask if anyone needed more water, food, pens to fill out the customs forms, etc."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, junk food, junk entertainment"
Pros: "On time. Good price no frills flight."
Pros: "Tablet for $10 with movies was a good deal."
Cons: "Paid for gogo Internet day pass when there was no service and no internet once we were 20 min into flight.... They should make a point to let people know the service is not available and that tablets replace it. Also the fact that the Internet was $16 and did not come with any movies or ability to stream is a ripoff. Also there was a time I asked an attendant for a ginger ale and the response was "yeah this a the trash cart" with an attitude was upsetting. It's a very long flight."
Pros: "There was one nice customer service agent that tried to help me"
Cons: "Canceled flight due to flat tire Missed all connections. Arrival 5 hours late. Not ideal after having major surgery"
Pros: "Arrived safely. Price was average. Experience was average. Legroom was average. Nice flower taped to toilet."
Cons: "Crew member made many sarcastic comments about passengers aloud. Snacks were bad."
Pros: "This was a great flight too."
Pros: "The male flight attendant was not very attentive. He would serve me first and then lean over my food and drink to serve the guy on the window seat. I had to ask him every time if he could take away my glass and then my wrappers and then my...well everything. Many people from the main cabin came up front to use the first class bathroom, and he didn't stop them. He abruptly woke he up three times with his loud voice talking with passengers...with no regard of the sleeping passengers. He is more suited for the main cabin. He didn't offer any help when I was struggling to put my bag in the overhead bin. He watched as the young lady flight attendant struggled to open the plane door... I did not feel that the cost for first class was worth it. He never responded when I thanked him for each thing he did...nothing...not, "You're welcome" or "my pleasure." So, it was a first class disappointment."
Pros: "Delta service and comfort is always excellent."
Cons: "All is great just keep it up"
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Got delayed"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "The ability to charge my cell phone via USB ports. Also the movies on long flights is really nice"
Cons: "Quicker way to get off plane"
Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Pros: "Crew was great seats comfortable but quite near back my connecting flight I had to get my seat when I got to the airport I was second from the back but close to washrooms"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"
Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"
Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Pros: "That was a treat since I don't expect the option to watch movies on short flights Also, thank you for the healthier snack items- keep moving in that direction please!"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process. I booked the tickets months ago, but didn't have seats until the last minute. They didn't even put my wife and I together, but sandwiched 2 people between us. Boneheads."
Pros: "Flight Crew were friendly and attentive. Boarding is well organized."
Cons: "My itinerary was changed multiple times, most importantly impacting my arrival time into Victoria BC. This flight was changed twice, the first time I received an email notification telling me the new flight was an hour later. When I got my check-in email 24 hours before my trip was to begin I noticed the arrival time for my return flight had been changed again, this time arriving another hour later. I received no notice for this change. Other than a shuttle service, there are no late night public transit options from the Victoria airport into town--a 25 minute drive. I was left with 10 minutes between the late arrival of my flight to claim my bags, clear customs and try to make the last shuttle. I specifically purchased my ticket so I would have plenty of time to make this connection. I missed it and wound up having to take a $60 (not including tip) taxi to get into town. Changing my itinerary to arrive 2 hours later without notifying me is unacceptable. I've never had any pot-purchase itinerary changes happen to me on Alaska Airlines, which also has regular service between Seattle and Victoria. I'm inclined to make sure I always use them from now on."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
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: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed substantially. Sat on the plan 40 minutes before taking off after already being 30 minutes delayed."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."
Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."
Pros: "entertainment options are great. The flights are plentiful, so lots of options."
Cons: "No options for vegans on 10 hour flight!! Shame on you!! Our needs should be considered."
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Pros: "West Jet was well organized and very professional in helping travellers on a full aircraft reach Hobolulu. I was particularly impressed by the polite calm and efficient cabin staff. Will use this airline again."
Pros: "The crew were so kind and friendly. Kept the spirit upbeat and served us well. The bulkhead was roomy enough for carry on bags, so they weren’t taken away from us to be checked, which happened to us on the same flight last year with another Canadian airline."
Cons: "I do miss personal screens in seats, although I understand it’s not really necessary anymore. If there were a ledge or place in seats to accommodate personal devices for better viewing, that would b amazing. No more neck cricks."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited to what was being broadcast on regular cable channels. No movies or on demand content were available. Assigned seats were different than what was reserved during booking."
Pros: "Crew did a good job, even with the long delays."
Cons: "Plane was almost 2 hours late getting to LA. Started with the crew needing to clear customs in Vancouver. Delayed by 30 minutes....then the crew preboarded a sick lady and her travel companion. At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure. Circled LA a few times before getting to land.... long flight with long delays!"
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Pros: "Talia is an excellent stewardess—She takes good care of people"
Pros: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Pros: "Flight crew very attentive."
Cons: "Condition of bathroom at front."
Pros: "The staff are super friendly. The prices are good and the travel times and locations are convenient and what we were looking for."
Cons: "Checking in was a bit of a pain - there was a WJ staffer helping us with the self serve kiosk. She obviously didn't know how to use it, and just hit the continue button and kept asking us to fill in the personal information on the screens. It was funny to laugh at afterwards but not at the time."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "Order ahead food was easy and selection was tasty"
Cons: "Bring a book! Apps to have your entertainment on individual devices is a bad idea."
Pros: "Everything was streamlined and easy to understand. We made it on time and the staff were friendly, especially with our young son who is one Ana half."
Cons: "You have to pay for a meal even though it’s a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and in the air were great and the only positive part of my experience."
Cons: "I was put into the long line to check my luggage with 75 minutes to take off. Of course I missed my direct flight as I was put into a long line. The man who listened to me complain was very kind and empathetic and the only good part about being forced to miss my flight. "We stop loading X amount of minutes before take off" I can't remember the exact number but there was ten minutes to spare before said time when they stopped loading. Dealt with it. Not happy but at least my luggage wasn't lost. Will I fly with WestJet again? Probably. Will I expect some sort of hang up and/or inconvenience? Definitely."
Pros: "The Pilot explained his Procedures thoroughly."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "This flight and the one before we're both delayed by over an hour. What's worse is each time we ended up spending about 20-30 min slowly driving around the runway since the takeoff queue was backed up so much. Maybe not the airlines fault for that but the pilot never said a word about it and kept us in the dark. Each flight was in total delayed by several hours. It seems more often than not these days that flights are delayed and are totally unreliable. I've come to hate flying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and took another 45 min to leave once boarding was complete"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive. They still give away snacks too which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "There was nothing I disliked about the flight other than the discomfort of the seats, but there is nothing they could have really done to change that!"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Small seats. Nonexistent food and entertainment option are all self provided"
Cons: "Flight was late which got us running for our next connection in Toronto."
Cons: "Being late into LA"
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing!"
Cons: "The head phone jack for my tv was broken which was annoying but not the worst thing ever because I just listened along with my wife beside me. If I hadn't known the person beside me and have been able to listen to share theirs it would have been way worse."
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to download an app for vieweing movies burning flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were super friendly. The plane was very nice and spacious, the flight was smooth and the landing was excellent!"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it."
Cons: "Flight delayed which led to our rental car gone"

Pros: "Smooth, friendly and cost effective."
Pros: "I travel on plus and the person who was in charge of our sección was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "what i don't like is that i had to wait for my luggage an hour . causin incomvinience for me later."
Cons: "No entertain system"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Pros: "Start the flight a bit earlier than scheduled, so we arrive a bit earlier too. The flight is smooth."
Pros: "Good helpful crew. Reasonably sane boardingon a full d flight."
Cons: "1+ hour before we took off after getting on the plane. 1+ hour before we got off the plane after landing."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight left & arrived on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, more legroom than the American Airline flight"
Cons: "I prefer to have a TV to watch instead of downloading the App."
Cons: "Same comment as the previous flight ref movies. I wont take Westjet again on a long flight without movie screens. Not all old people have Iphones or laptop computers. Mike C."
Pros: "Flight was great. Calgary customs was awful. The lines were extremely long. We boarded our plane at 9:50 and departure was at 10."
Cons: "Customs at Calgary Canada was terribly slow. Almost missed our plane."
Cons: "Didn't know I needed to download Westjet app before the flight and bring my own device"

Cons: "Manual boarding and missing one of my luggage"
Cons: "It had over 1 hour delayed no wifi no screen"
Pros: "Crew fun"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Pros: "Gate agents were nice."
Cons: "1. Nothing healthy to buy on the plane. 2. Nasty flight attendant. 3. Small seats. 4. Swollen ankles because flight attendant wouldn't let me put my stocking feet up in bulkhead seat, which is why I purchased it. 5. Poor service. 6. Plane landed early but we didn't get to the gate until more than an hour later!"
Pros: "Very helpful! Very enjoyable flight, I was worried about my bags fitting as I took a 46L backpacking bag with me but it rit great and staff was so nice!"
Pros: "online checkin, fast boarding (a total of only 27 passengers undoubtedly made boarding much quicker), had extra space due to the sparse flight; smooth flight, good refreshments, pilot did a good job of keeping us updated on runway/gate status"
Cons: "on board crew didn't seem interested; empty cup was never picked up; upon leaving the aircraft (after a 30 minute delay due to a problem at our gate) none of the crew said as much as goodbye or thanks. I know it was a late flight with very few passengers, many of whom may have slept, but as such I thought the crew should have been more attentive and friendly at departure. A disappointing experience."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice don't know who's fault it"
Cons: "Almost an hour to get any luggage out is not acceptable"
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "A very pleasant experience, nice crew."
Cons: "Over 3 hours late for no good reason. Took an hour for maintenance to show up to sign a piece of paper. Changed departure gate 3 times. Wake up American, you’re service has gone completely to hell. And hellish is how I would describe the experience of flying on your airline"
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Cons: "Never made it. Stranded at LAX."
Pros: "Crew and seats super comfy"
Cons: "TV in the seat"
Cons: "The explanation for why the flight experienced so many delays wasn't given. The flight was clearly overbooked and the organization of the crew while boarding the plane was poor."
Pros: "Crew on board was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. I thought families traveling with kids would get priority boarding before main cabin."
Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"
Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."
Cons: "Crew very good"
Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."
Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."
Cons: "The aircraft was very old and the seats where hard to sit the crew were not so good, we were thrusting all the trip."
Cons: "The cliff notes of this debacle are, inbound flight arrived late to Montreal, I contacted AA social media team to make sure they could notify the gate of my connecting flight, they didn’t after they said they did. Flight arrived in Chicago a little early, I have to wait 15 min for my bags from the valet, I run to the next gate and arrive with 13 min to spare, the gate agent (not nice) goes I’m sorry we already closed the door. I’m like, huh? Then he has the gall to tell me, “well had someone called us we could of held your seat”. That’s when I lost it. Needless to say I’m now flying to Dayton and back to Dallas. That’s in lieu of a 3:50 PM flight TOMORROW!"
Pros: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."
Cons: "the tremendous pressure from the staff, at the American Airlines. Never before experience such a low and virtually feel like an inmate, Just because the person in doing so, was profiling and that is NO GOOD , also the airport is filthy and dirty , Nobody Cares...I will not come again as a tourist to that country.. American Airlines should train the staff to be more courteous and not to ask that many questions ..it feels like you where in Siberia.."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."
Pros: "Direct flight from desired origin to destination Boarding by zones"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, small, seat space with inadequate legroom. Lack of personal entertainment options. Paid extra for earlier boarding group which only benefited me by about 5 people. (NOT WORTH IT!) Lack of complimentary food options. (Pay for everything)"
Cons: "No personal TV, awful airline servicers. They were very rude and seemed distracted."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. I don’t recall the fair but this was a bargain and we were safe."
Cons: "Not enough water served. More snacks please"
Pros: "Ummmm the only thing I like is we landed in Maui safely. Pilots and crew seems friendly."
Cons: "We almost this flight because the connection flight can't find an open gate to park the plane. Inside the air plane kids got hungry, we were ready to order $$$ meals and they said they didn't have it anymore. Seriously?! 6+ hours flight and no meal. Then I asked for 3 pretzel and they gave it to another passenger, so they only have 1 left supposedly!!! Come on!!"
Pros: "Decent amount of bathrooms"
Cons: "I was shocked that we weren't provided better and more food for an expensive and lengthy flight. Also there were no head rest tv's. They plane seemed very old"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "First Class seating was of course better than economy."
Cons: "Flight to Maui had no Mai Tai drinks available, no heated towels, no dessert, barely any service from the flight attendant(s)."
Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."
Cons: "Very cold airplane"
Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."

Cons: "Couldn't eat the meal both had dairy no other choice"
Pros: "thay we didn't crash"
Cons: "1. To didn't work 2. Give us pillows"
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation. We understand that Things happens and the airline takes precautions to make sure everything is okay before take off. However, I'm very frustrated and disappointed."
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Cons: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "We flew safely!"
Cons: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."
Cons: "Checkin was a nightmare! Not clearly marked and very confusing at LAX."
Pros: "We flew on an American Airlines plane which appeared to be very new. As such, the touch screen TV was very easy to use, the restroom was very clean, and the storage compartment was efficient."
Cons: "This new plane of American Airlines had extended legroom. However, they have narrowed the seats, made the armrests unretractable, and you can not recline your seat. So, although the legroom is enhanced, you are "locked into" a rather straight up sitting oosition with no ability to rotate a bit side to side. I can't imagine how a slightly overweight person could negotiate this. For a 2.5 hr flight, I was very uncomfortable within 15 minutes"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Used the really nice blanket and pillow"
Cons: "No tv. No tablet. No foot rest. What a waste of paying for first class....so not worth it. Modernize This plane."
Pros: "This was my first trip flying and it was absolutely amazing! I would recommend AA to anyone who needs to fly. The crew was absolutely wonderful."
