Pros: "There was good food and entertainment"
Cons: "I'd like better vegetarian options for food though"

Pros: "Flight was fine. Staff was fine. No complaints."
Cons: "Although the food was abundant and tasted good, it was rather heavy. Lots of starch (and chocolate!). That kind of food may be fun and satisfying, but it's not really the best thing for middle-aged adults who are sitting on an airplane for 10 hours! If you can work in more fruits and veggies or light desserts, that would be great! Regarding entertainment: We could not connect to the entertainment system, so we watched a DVD that we brought along with us."

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: "Nice plane, solid food."
Cons: "Waaaay too hot."

Cons: "While booking the tickets I was told that my luggage will be checked in till my final destination but I had to collect them at Narita airport. I had to cancel my plans of sight seeing at Tokyo downtown due to this."

Pros: "The flight crew were great and very accommodating."
Cons: "A majority of the passengers on flight either barely caught, or missed, their connecting flight due to this flight being so delayed."

Cons: "I booked my flight from Vancouver to Kiev The first flight it's to Toronto then to Kiev.. and when Went to the counter in Kiev they said sorry but Turkish airline didn't send my booking to kanda airline so I missed all my flight schedule I didn't wait I bought another ticket to Kiev in the same date on Lufthansa airline And it cost me like 1945c$"

Pros: "Entertainment, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "nice screen, but need to bring your own earplugs or pay to get a pair. toilet was clean, seat was quite comfortable for economy class"
Cons: "the reading light from next seat passenger was disturbing me a lot, spotting on my head & arm and it was really warm.. no room to store bag below front seat"

Pros: "In flight Game of Thrones!!"
Cons: "The lines at YVR were horrendous."

Pros: "the accommodation of the carry on in the compartments, it is absolutely disturbing and dangerous; specially and such of huge plane like the one I flew. Passengers should have the right to have a least 1 registered for free luggage to avoid such of chaos, possible injuries and delays. i feel horrible for the flight attendants for such of task of carrying and moving so many luggages."
Cons: "The fact that traveling International for so many hours, I was treated like I was flying Domestic. No, food, no drinks. In the past airlines complained about cost of fuel, gas, but now is cheaper and we PASSANGERS never have any consideration flying. Another fact is the seatis are too small, I had to share my seat with two overweight women and they occupied part of my space, I was so uncomfortable, I requested for another seating and was not possible due to the fullness of the plain. I standed up many time not rubber and feel the heat of that person on my left side. overweight people should be suggested to buy double seating."

Pros: "Same plane as the one I flew on the way to Toronto. It's a really nice plane."

Pros: "the crew was super nice. very friendly and caring. the entertainment was perfect. boarding was easy and timely."
Cons: "the seats offer little to no lumbar support. this was midigated a little with the pillow and blanket, it didnt really do much. for someone who has lower back issues, this was a big problem, a reason i am dreading my flight home. on top of that, it was my first time flying internationally, so i had no clue i had to hunt down my flight via flight time board."

Pros: "At $320usd per person per direction, you can't beat the price thanks to whatever magical gremlins Kayaks employs to fix prices for them...we flew Air Canada and we'e very pleased with their fleets new addition of 787 dream liners. Do yourself a favor and find a flight on this aircraft. From takeoff to landing, there was never a question about our safety and comfort, and the sleek, organic aesthetic of the dream liner somehow met a new standard for both ergonomy and tech/entertainment. I especially found the sub ports in my personal screen useful."
Cons: "Transatlantic flights are too long. Hurry up Science, magic me up some low earth orbit/sonic+ future jets already...Jaesus..."

Cons: "Missed the flight"

Cons: "Wasn't offered a drink or food for 2 hours into the flight. Then when they reached me, all the options were sold out. I had crackers and hummus for lunch. I am pregnant and travelling alone with a toddler and was told by a flight attendant they were suppose to help me lift my bag. Nothing major, but left an unpleasant experience compared to Westjet."

Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."

Cons: "Baggage misplaced"

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."

Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."

Cons: "I almost missed my connecting flight due to AC delaying departure in Vancouver. I received no solid information from the stewardess on the flight on whether the connecting plane in Toronto would wait. I mean, really. There was never any explanation as to why the Vancouver flight was late either."

Pros: "I liked that the flight was not completely full. we had a hard touchdown"
Cons: "1. These days, I have come to expect a complimentary in-flight entertainment system on international flights. This flight had nothing whatsoever. This is ok, but the customer should be warned when making the flight reservation so they can choose whether to bring an ipad along. 2. Food and service were not as good as a recent Air Canada return trip from Roma to Vancouver which had a first rate crew, food, and complimentary beer. 3. The plane was much older than the recent return trip I had and the air was much more dry."

Pros: "Fairly quick! Staff were really nice and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour. Very uncomfortable seating arrangements for a long-distance flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants, especially Theresa, were fantastic. Theresa was very attentive, fun, and made each passenger feel special. The flight crew Supervisor greeted us each by name and leads a spectacular crew. The seat, amenities, entertainment, and food were just amazing."
Cons: "Business class did not have it's own boarding call."

Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy which made a big difference. Lots of leg room, a menu, pre flight drinks."
Cons: "Airline lost my luggage."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pretty terrible for an international airline, charge for drinks, earbuds, no inflight entertainment without pre downloading their crappy app, which was full of ancient, terrible movies. Lots of stuff broken on plane, reading light would turn on/off randomly. Very annoying. Charger did not work, had to use the row next to us"

Pros: "Friendly crew very helpful. Not as loud as the last flight."
Cons: "So many people crammed into a small space. Needed more leg room and shoulder room."

Pros: "Very good individual entertainer system in seat backs of new boeing dream liner."
Cons: "Called in advance re special veg meal but they didn't have it at mealtime."

Pros: "I always like to fly Air Canada for long international flights. Everyone has their own TV, where you can choose what movie/TV show you want to watch, or what game you want to play. You can also pause, fast forward, and rewind at any point, which is not always possible on other airlines. The food was also very tasty. We were served two full meals and a sandwich. The alcohol was free, which was lovely too. The staff were nice and there was plenty of leg room. Overall, it was a great flight."

Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Dreamliner was airy and pleasant. Large screens. Electric outlets"
Cons: "Need more E books and audio podcasts."

Cons: "Pushed call button twice as I could not get entertainment system in business class to work, never came"

Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."

Pros: "At least there was food tho only banana bread for breakfast"
Cons: "No movies or entertainment for overnight flight"

Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."

Cons: "Bread dry and no choice . Fresh fruit would be refreshing"

Pros: "The crew was all wonderful, friendly and efficient."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "We waited nearly two hours AFTER WE BOARDED THE PLANE for a flat tire to be changed, or so we were told. In typical airline fashion, we were told several times that the delay would probably take about 15 minutes, turning into nearly 2 hours. In combination with the change I described above and the 9.5 hour flight to Tokyo, we were completely done in for 2-3 days after we got to Tokyo."

Pros: "As a 6'5" guy, I was worried about spending ten hours on a plane. Air Canada made the flight enjoyable with comfortable seats (even in the economy class) and high quality flight attendants."

Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "We are retired adults and seated with at least a dozen young children around us, it was so loud. The two year old next to me kicked me off and on the whole flight."

Cons: "The flight attendants are extremely rude. Even when the passengers were sweet to them. In general horrible horrible horrible customer service. For that reason I don't think I'd fly on air canada again."

Pros: "Friendly staff - clean, newer plane."
Cons: "Sound/video system kept rebooting in both of our seats and volume would randomly increase/decrease. Arm rest controls easily bumped (does not seem to be the reason video system was problematic)."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "It was a packed flight and it felt like I couldn't breath on the flight at times. I was stuck between two very big people."

Pros: "The crew members were fabulous."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive when I did. I did not see my personal belongings for three days. When the second leg of my journey was cancelled, I was book on a flight with a short connection. Therefore, my luggage remained in Canada while I went on to Japan."

Pros: "Exit seat. Leg room"
Cons: "Breakfast too small. Plane leaked on me during take off and landing. 3 hour delay on plane before take off. Stewardesses ignored people looking for water."

Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "The ability to scan for juvenile adults acting like children."

Pros: "On time flights"
Cons: "All ok"

Cons: "Slow with drinks and food, late departure"

Cons: "The WiFi for the personal entertainment system wasn’t working properly"

Pros: "I finally arrived."
Cons: "More communication about delay and lost luggage."

Cons: "A mechanic issue with a fan in the cargo hold kept us from boarding for 40 minutes. Once we boarded and got out onto the tarmack they discovered an issue with the GPS. We sat for 2 hours before going back to the gate. Maintenance came on and fixed it. Then we took off.. 3 hours late"

Cons: "Everything. We were incredibly delayed which happens but none of the staff knew what was happening. Different passengers were told different things and when we tried to ask questions they were far from helpful. It was not a good experience at all."

Cons: "Plane had no entertainment"

Pros: "The crew, the speed (we arrived early), the boarding."
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Faster boarding"

Cons: "Saw many backpacks inefficiently stored overhead, yet I was told to check in my carry on even though I had paid to upgrade my seat. Staff extremely unhelpful and clueless."

Pros: "Got to gate on time. Attendants nice, good service"
Cons: "seats of course. No room anymore"

Pros: "Crew was cheerful."
Cons: "Bring your own everything, even your own entertainment. Download the app before you fly so you can watch 20 year old movies."

Cons: "The worst trip with United airlines specially from Huston to El Salvador"

Pros: "On time, pleasant crew"

Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Take off and landing very good"

Cons: "0% leg room :("

Pros: "We upgraded to business so it was great. Crew was especially attentive."
Cons: "Couldn't recharge the iPhone. No plug."

Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."

Cons: "Unassigned seating from the beginning of the trip made the trip arduous."

Pros: "The flight was nice and the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough"

Cons: "Late flight and can't catch next flight on time:("

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Staff was great, and the few delays that occurred were fairly minimal and it was clear that the staff/pilot did their best to keep things timely"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Indifferent staff, absolutely no customer service Flight late, no food, no entertainment, seats extremely cramped, packed in like sardines, no personality at all, just attitude- get through it, provided basics, waited 20 min for first bag to appear in luggage carousel too, nothing good about it! It would be revolutionary if one airline valued their guests and showed it! Instead of cattle they manage and transport"

Pros: "They at least had the option for live TV on one of the flights, but wanted $8, when Southwest gives it to you free."
Cons: "The gate agent also just seemed and unpleasant in general. The leg room is the worst in the industry, it's absolutely terrible"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers"

Cons: "Unfortunately the first leg of our flight was delayed over an hour. Although we made our connecting flight (barely), our luggage didn't make it onto the plane. It was OK since it was our return flight and we received our luggage later the next day."

Pros: "At least the seats had power outlets."
Cons: "Crew appeared to hate their jobs, only peanuts and water for a 2.5hr flight. Plane was good but united sucks."

Cons: "I don't like delays..."

Cons: "I don't understand why you don't load from the back of the plane first, it just makes more sense."

Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful service,"

Pros: "It really was great. On time, crew was helpful and friendly"

Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."

Pros: "It had been years since we last flew UNITED. Honestly, we were a bit apprehensive after learning of friends' negative experiences but we moved forward with our plan. The flight was smooth, and ahead of schedule and the crew was totally on top of their game. SPOT ON!"
Cons: "If I would make ANY suggestion, it would be to load people from the back of the plane to expedite loading. Your current 'zone' approach results in lots of waiting for passengers lo sitting in the back....as the front passenger's mess around, trying to get themselves situated...CLUELESS that there are a hundred others WAITING in the aisle, as they tussle with their sweaters, purses, tech equipment, etc. (if you get my gist!). Just something to consider....."

Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "The flight attendants were really courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was not anything that I did not like"

Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"

Cons: "Cramped seats, poor entertainment choices, basic uncomfortable seating."

Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."

Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."

Pros: "Kayak was not aware that my flight was changed to another airline. Great notification!!!!!"

Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."
