being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM
Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time.

Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"

Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"

Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"

Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."

Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"

Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"

Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"

Cons: "They don’t even give glass of water in business class. Terrible attention."
Pros: "The only salvation was the entertainment choices. ."
Cons: "The planes need to upgrade the seats. When we were served food if the person push their seat back your food tray would flip like two did on our flight. Staff was jaded and sarcastic. I'm glad I had a discounted flight. I'd be angry if I paid full price. Poor staff, seat architecture, and poor food."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Pros: "Crew was superb!! Very attentive and extremely willing to help people when called upon."
Cons: "Aircraft entertainment screens were not working at all at a lot of seats. Airbus 330-300 was dated and the cabin amenities were in disrepair. But overall the flight satisfied everything that was needed!"
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight due to the fact that the TAP crew leaving Barcelona said there was “fog” and therefore, nearly half of the flight had the same connecting flight to London. On top of it, they had no other flights and put us up in a hotel instead."
Pros: "seat comfortable, crew , quietly professional"
Cons: "larger leg room"
Pros: "all staf in airport pleasant and quickly to across other place to connect"
Cons: "a lot of people they pass by preference, and late for star Alliance"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. Seats on the international flight could have been a bit more comfortable. Entertainment was available and satisfying. The meals were good. Crew was nice."
Cons: "the ground personnel were not nice. They also did not seem to know what they were doing. Inconsistent communication. No patience with customers."
Cons: "The flight was with some delay."
Cons: "Schedule wrong, missed next flight"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Delayed transport to flight, tiny non-reclining seats. Food offering mediocre and had to flag down flight attendant just to get water they we're giving to everyone but some of us apparently."
Cons: "No film"
Cons: "We were never prompted to pay for our check in baggage at the time of purchase and so when we showed up we were forced to pay 85 euros for one checked bag for an international flight on top of a ticket that already cost more than $250. The luggage restrictions were never shown previously. Will never fly TAP Portugal again."
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Cons: "Flight was three hours late."
Cons: "The flight was oversold and we got bumped off with 20 other passengers even though we had all booked months in advance. I’m still not in Marrakech, now a flight to New Jersey. I’m so sad and it’s my wedding anniversary."
Pros: "Seats were nice in the front half of the plane."
Cons: "Checked bag costs are 90USD which is way to high. No meal selection. One choice offered and it was a weird flavor."
Pros: "Excellent Service - pleasant flight - comfortable seats"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"
Pros: "Clean and simple aircraft. Limited but professional service. Uncomplicated boarding procedures."
Cons: "Boarding from bus at a main airport in winter. It looks cheap flyght .But we'll organized."
Pros: "Flight was on time and landed early. We got small samdwiches with a snack and juice."
Cons: "I had 1 jour layover but was a big lide for air line I would never travel with this air line again the rest my life They have me pay my luggage. That is stealing from customers Butshit"
Cons: "Flight was delighted and service staff was slow"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew very friendly, check in process easy"
Cons: "Seats are very unconfortable and the space limited. baggage policy isn't very clear; I had to pay 20 extra euros for a checked bag"
Cons: "Half an hour late and waiting additional 15 minutes before being able to leave the aircraft"
Pros: "staff was fine. Food was kind of tasty."
Cons: "seats were quite small. no onboard entertainment."
Pros: "The flight was quick, boarding was easy and efficient."
Cons: "Flight attendants can be a bit nicer."
Cons: "Your change and return policy is a ripoff."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. Very, very friendly and professional. It stood out."
Cons: "The airplane was pretty old and it's time for a makeover."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable business class. Food was good. Entertainment system easy to use."
Cons: "They totally screwed up boarding. We waited for about 20-30 minutes in line because they had not worked out the boarding logistics properly. Seat design does not permit an independent adjustment of the foot rest. Crew seemed a little indifferent to our presence; very few smiles."
Pros: "We are still alive."
Cons: "Crew was rude, unhelpful, and the business class seats were essentially coach with the middle seat unoccupied. It was extremely uncomfortable and made worse by the crew being very impatient and not helpful when we had people in our seats, a 3-year-old we were trying to seat, and all of the overhead compartments closed so unclear where to place bags. Boarding began 20 min late and then we had to stand on the boarding ramp for another 20 min while the crew finished "cleaning" the aircraft."
Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."
Pros: "The plane was really comfortable and clean with plenty of legroom, and the staff friendly."
Pros: "Roomy, clean, meals included-didn't think airlines did that anymore, very friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing-no entertainment but this was a short flight so didn't matter to me"
Pros: "TAP counter staff helped get seat assignments for knee injury. New aircraft with good video system and comfortable seats in Economy Plus. Crew was helpful. Food OK. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Not TAP's fault, but long lines at customs and security at Lisbon Airport made us run to arrive at gate for next flight. Again, not TAP's fault, but additional security check at the waiting area, opening carry-on baggage and emptying my purse seemed over the top."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "The worst entertainment system I've seen."
Pros: "No comment on this flight"
Cons: "No comment on this flight"
Pros: "Ask persons for veg or non veg snacks before u served please."
Cons: "Intraregional flights are always a let down"
Pros: "Pleasant flight- crew was very friendly and helpful; they gave us extra water when we needed it- no attitude. The blankets and pillows were great and used throughout the flight! The movie selection was fantastic! The food was also very tasty!"
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit hectic because you had to go through an additional bag check at the gate and then some people still cut the lines and pushed their way to the front-- that was not managed so well."
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "Again delayed and seats were ridiculously small"
Cons: "The crew was rude, after 5 hours they seemed annoyed when I asked for water and gave me half a cup after I had just finished vomitting due to all the swaying of the aircraft. While we were landing, we came over the runway maybe 100 feet off the ground then jetted back up and circled around the airport for 20 minutes before landing horribly...with NO explaination. Everyone started vomitting because the landing (both times) were so horrible. Our first flight was late, we landed when the second was 'closing the doors', they never updated the monitors or informed the crew that the second plane was also delayed (by over an hour), so we rushed through customs and ran through the airport only to discover they hadn't even started boarding yet, even though the screen said it had departed. Completely disorganized."
Pros: "Much cleaner/larger and better flight out of Milan to Boston. Weird boarding procedure. Took over 1/14 hours to board the plane. Slow!!! they do ask you to be there an hour prior to boarding beginning. The entertainment was fabulous and the food was much better. Had a hot meal and later a snack."
Cons: "Arrived in Lisbon 2 hrs before flight departure. Wait in customs line was over 2 hours. By the time I could get to the check in line was told the gate had closed an hour ago. Went to get a ticket for the next flight and was told I would have to pay an additional 99 euros and the next flight 6 hours later was not available but I could get on a flight that was 12 hours later. I ended up taking an earlier flight on another airline. Would not recommend this airline."
On the bombardier Q400, and the seats have much more legroom than WestJet. Definitely get the aisle seats on these small planes.
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Cons: "Problems with the emergency lightning caused the flight to depart two hours late"
Pros: "Boarding was good and fast"
Cons: "The audio jack was not good thus I had to keep it steady with my hand to be able to listen to movie"
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "they boarded zones 3, then 4, then 5.. utter chaos. When I asked a male flight attendant the premise for this he was rude and aggressive. My wife phoned CA to book a gluten free meal the day before. The process was so complex she gave up. 9 hours no food. I was reminded again why I hate this airline"
Cons: "Air Canada has completely gone down the tubes and super quickly."
Pros: "Ease of flying right from and to home"
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so I sat in my own row,?which offered spare leg room (I’m 6’2”). Time to fix the leg room issue on Rouge flights — it’s 2018."
Cons: "Crew seemed uninterested in general. On phones in back while people struggling to find luggage space. Coffee cups and plastic utensils, etc, stored in overhead bins so people at the back had to search for carry-on space elsewhere, again, without assistance from on board crew. Offered service only once and many were sleeping so didn’t get anything. The overall check-in process could be easier, as the app doesn’t always work as it should."
Cons: "seat pitch pretty tight."
Pros: "It was a direct flight from Toronto to Kelowna."
Pros: "Efficient crew as with the first flight I had, consistent service."
Cons: "I don’t know if it’s the Vancouver-Mexico route or if it’s the seats but there’s just something difficult about it. First time I flew into Vancouver I was exhausted which makes sense as I had to fall out of bed at 3am, but this time I was awake and well rested and it still felt draining (which generally doesn’t happen to me with flights). Maybe it’s the leg space and the seats? Not sure. Could also be the odd time zone crossing."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane were excellent."
Cons: "The wireless entertainment system is slow and glitchy and did not work on an older iPad. The food was subpar but by airline standards was middle of the road."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Old plane, no in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Nice trip. Pleasant and comfortable. Nice staff on boar. The food was nice."
Cons: "The delay before take off, as almost usual."
Cons: "Delayed as always"
Cons: "1, no food 2, pay for the luggage 3, very small leg room 4, too low temperature in the cabin and no blanket"
Pros: "Crew were excellent, flight itself was comfortable once finally underway"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, never given an explanation. My bag did not arrive with my flight from Victoria to Toronto. I was never told why this happened, and I was refused entry through customs and forced to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Managed to arrive on time in spite of leaving 1 hr 15 min late."
Cons: "Air Canada connecting flight from LA was 1 hr late coming in and no indication was given whether the flight to Milan would wait, nor any help was given in getting us to the gate. We barely made it through crowds at the adjacent gates and only because we heard our name called before closing the gate. A bit of coordination and desire to help would have gone a long way in helping navigate access through a long and less than walker-friendly set of terminals."
Cons: "Employees seemed somewhat disorganized. There was not enough space in front of counter for people and there luggage. I ticketing agent would yell from far down the counter "Next...Next!) and finally walk closer so people in line could see/hear them. Then, often that next customer could not get to the counter in front of the agent because of the pillars and other people were blocking them. The space was too cramped. At boarding, Instructions over the loudspeaker were not clear and the video screens contained incorrect information about boarding. At one point the agent came out and yelled at everyone to "get out of line!, we are not boarding yet". I have never seen this process handled so poorly and I fly quite a bit."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow and it made eating the meal a little difficult."
Pros: "Take off and landing were both smooth and ahead of time. Landed Toronto from New York about 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "Charging for earphones!!!"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about that flight."
Cons: "Even though I was at the airport on time , checked in and waiting to board; at the last minute I was told that the plane has left and the sooner I could fly would be the next day; without providing hotel arrangement nor meals and or at least money for taxi. Air Canada management personel has not been cordial to me and to the other travelers."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Pros: "The price was decent."
Cons: "I was travelling with a 13 yr old and expected to be seated together when I booked. I didn't know I needed to pluck my seats if I didn't want to pay extra. The woman at boarding moved our seats, however, closer at boarding, which I thought was pretty considerate."
Pros: "Crew was surly overall on flight. On ground they looked bored-one on first leg of flight seemed hung over"
Cons: "Changed my flight home do my layover went from 1 hr 30 min to 5 hours!"
Pros: "The space I had for my feet and legs"
Cons: "The lights that had to stay on during a red eye flight"
Pros: "The 10 Euro voucher was the only pleasant part of the flight."
Cons: "Our flight through Air Canada arriving to Toronto was late and our flight to Milan from Toronto was also delayed. We would have been able to get onto the flight from Toronto to Milan because we made it to the gate in time but because our baggage was not with us we had to take the next flight that then took us to the U.K. and then to Milan. With the next air canada flight also being delayed, go figure. We finally arrive in Milan and with an entire day gone to explore the city. We waited 2 hours for luggage when our bags never came we checked lost and found and it turns out that our luggage was still in Toronto. Seriously Air Canada? Our luggage hasn't even left Toronto yet? So much for not being able to catch or last flight because our bags were not with us. We finally get our luggage a day later on the exact same flight we would have taken the day before, had Air Canada not screwed everything up."
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "NO frequent flyer miles after agents said there could be. Hours wasted trying to get miles."
Pros: "On time. Clean. Efficient"
Cons: "fitst leg was late. no communication about the connection. was not not clear whether we're going to make the connection - too much stress"
Cons: "Mechanical errors delays and poor overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Very fast flight"
Cons: "In flight Audio didn't work"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "I wanted to see pilots to greet us at the doors! Very important Could not hear announcements clearly We should have option plus"
Cons: "Smaller plane & seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 4 hours due to Air Canada needing a mechanic to check and sign off on the tire tread on one of the wheels, the ground staff enforced the carry-on bag size arbitrarily and inconsistently, and the entertainment system froze up and reset itself at least 3 times on the flight. Apart from the captain, the rest of the Air Canada staff exhibited the usual bureaucratic and defensive behavior I have unfortunately seen multiple times before. They're expensive (with a nasty computer algorithm that raises the price by over $100 each time you browse flights. The first time I checked, it was $300+; by the 3rd time it was over $600. When I used a VPN, the price magically went down to $300 plus, which was still a lot) and the experience is generally unpleasant. I have to brace myself for their lack of common sense behavior every time I deal with them. If I didn't have to fly with them, I wouldn't."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and helpful. The plane was clean. It was a comfortable flight, though the food was okay."
Cons: "Liked all of it."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The breakfast served was too little. We only received a drink and a biscuit."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "like i said above, i booked a ticket to milan but never got there. air canada or kayak screw up and made a route change. i ended up in frankfurt germany."
Pros: "the crew was great, food was alright, and overall I enjoyed my flight"
Cons: "the only entertainment was able to connect to apple products or a renatble iPad. I don't have an apple product so that was a bit annoying"
Pros: "Great service (Business Class)"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours due to fueling issue in YYJ (not Air Canada's fault) Breakfast (business class) never varies and is getting somewhat boring"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, flight on time, service and staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Boarding should be from the rear of the aircraft to reduce congestion in the aisles. Need more vegetarian food options."
Cons: "We were not allowed to board at EWR for want of Canadian transit visa. KayaK or Vyama never informed us us about this requirement We are Indian nationals. SimIler to us we saw two more families stranded at EWR who have come to catch the same flight.They have all booked this flight through Vyama/Kayak. Two senior citizens"
Pros: "I was able to be put on later flights (my first leg was delayed several hours due to weather), but the staff either didn't have information and/or directed me elsewhere to obtain information. That's about all good I can say about the trip."
Cons: "Poor communication from Air Canada staff about when the next flight would be, moving us off the plane after it had to return to Victoria, only to send us back on within ten minutes or so."
Pros: "That we got fed"
Cons: "That my seats were not together. All the over head luggage compartment were filled by the time we boarded."
Pros: "These are a work horse for the AC Fleet, no entertainment but it is a relatively short flight."
