Cons: "Very late in departure from Victoria. Long long delay in receiving oversize baggage. Incorrect directions by airport employees in Seattle, resulting in wrong floor, rescreening. But very helpful Alaska enployees to assist in unscrambling."
Pros: "Everything was dandy. A completely uneventful flight"
Cons: "Can’t thinkmif anything I didn’t like"
Cons: "The Seattle airport needs to get it together and expedite the security process. So slow, some people likely missed their connection, and definitely most were at heightened levels of anxiety."
Cons: "I reach at airport on time and report at customer service but it was for my surprise to to hear from the counter person that I was late and my flight is gone (though I saw same flight was there after about half an hour). Then they put me on later flight and charged me $25 for that. When I appealed the counter lady said "$25 is better otherwise you would have to pay $125.""
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Flight was smooth and on time. Didn't purchase food or entertainment. Ate prior to the flight. Seats are very cramped in coach area. I'm not a big person but the guy beside me was and spilled over into my space. Uncomfortable! Upgraded to first class for the next leg of my trip."
Pros: "The cheese plate was excellent. Sat in exit row seating so plenty of room."
Cons: "Couldn't check my bags early even though all of the news outlets said to arrive early due to long lines at TSA."

Cons: "No window in the window seat! Just a blank panel. Severely disappointed."
Pros: "Very few people on flight. Lots of room."
Cons: "I like Alaska airlines, just not the flight last night. Something was wrong with the engine and we were sitting there forever. They should have checked the engine before boarding everyone. We were sitting there with no A/C and then they had to turn the power off. They tried and tried to fix the problem but it didn't work. Then everyone had to get off the plane and there were not enough seats the next flight and no other flights that night at that airport. We had to change the airport for am flights or fly out the next day. They offered to change the tickets but nothing else. Some passengers had to pay for taxicab and hotel for the night by themselves."
Pros: "The overhead storage is nifty. The seats were comfortable and crew was friendly."
Cons: "This in flight wifi you pay for in lieu of free entertainment was a disappointment. I'm glad I brought my own stuff for my kids to do. You have to have your own device or you rent theirs, feels a little nickel and dimed. The cost of the food was high for what you get also."
Pros: "Terminal and flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Great flight with Alaskan Airlines as always."
Cons: "No free movies or any other free forms of entertainment despite a long cross country flight. One of the male crew members - don't know his name - was rather rude and would only allow me to have one cup of water and no coffee despite my having purchased a cheese platter."
Pros: "On time, great price, friendly staff, short flight, biscoff cookies"
Cons: "Every other traveler in the airport. But that has nothing to do with Alaska airlines so.. Nothing, they were great."
Pros: "loved the usb/power outlet"
Cons: "passengers seated in the back of the plane need to be loaded 1st."
Pros: "The crew members were sweet."
Cons: "Didn't like how old the plane was, nor how the seats were smashed all together with no room."
Pros: "safe, fast, professional, and responsible"
Cons: "seats too old;"
Pros: "I've never had a bad experience with Alaska Air. The flight staff was friendly and courteous, however can appear unprofessional. Other than that no complaints."
Cons: "Food could use some work...not a lot of bang for your buck."
Cons: "Flight was late in to connection and they lost my bag did not have enough food have to get cereal no entertainment was offered"
Pros: "Friendly crew New plane"
Cons: "The burger was not worth eating. Although the steward said she liked it - I should have known better and gone w the fruit and cheese. Stay away from the "warm foods" and realize you just cannot eat well when on a plane unless it doesn't require cooking. - BIG MISTAKE"
Pros: "Really easy access to board no delays at all"
Pros: "On time arrival. Decent entertainment options. Good food (cheese and fruit platter is awesome)"
Cons: "Crew arrived late to the gate, which delayed the departure slightly"
Pros: "Best airline I've flown on. Curtis staff, comfortable accommodations and just an overall positive experience. Keep up the good work."
Pros: "got there"
Cons: "the brat in front of me screaming"
Pros: "Upgraded my seat and loved it . Crew we're professional ."
Pros: "I'm not a seasoned flyer and everyone was very helpful!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I was moving from California to Washington and had four checked bags. The check in lady didn't charge me for the fourth bag and moved me on to an earlier flight! On the plane, the service was excellent. They even have me cookies when they were serving pretzels for free."
Cons: "Absolutely perfect flight."
Pros: "Free wine"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly kind and patient when we were working to install our car seat on the plane."
Cons: "It was a smaller plane so space was a bit of an issue, however 2 main complaints: 1) no wifi in the air (althought my next Alaska flight, on a larger plane, did have free wifi) and 2) no shades for the window - this is a must when you have children on board - if you want kids to sleep instead of screaming the whole flight this would be very useful."
Pros: "Cheap upgrade to first. not the best first, however."
Cons: "Grouchy crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed initially on the taxiway out of Fairbanks because of snow. We waited for DOT to plow the runway, which I believe is an airport failure. However, while waiting, the pilot mentioned that he hoped we wouldn't have to go back to the terminal to get enough fuel to make it to Seattle. Not something you want to hear. We did have to go back to the terminal for more fuel. Why did we board only to sit in an uncomfortable seat an extra 2 hours. Now we are heading to Seattle. Alaska Airlines knows that they have a plane load of people that are 2 hours late. I asked the flight attendant about the situation. They apologized but offered no help. No airline initiated attempt to repair missed connections was made. In fact, a friend walked up to his connection gate 4 minutes after the push-off time, and they didn't hold the flight for him even though they knew that our flight would be only minutes late. While still on our delayed flight, I tried via the the Alaska Airlines app to make a connection via standby, but the app didn't allow it. I had missed my connection by nearly 2 hours. When I called and tried to get a new connection, the phone agent told me that they could get me on the 8:30 connection. I thought, "Hey, that's great." I asked the flight attendant if they could let the tight connections out first. They apologized but did nothing. When I finally got off the flight and checked the departures board for the gate, I didn't see the new 8:30 flight number. I asked the nearest Alaska gate agent, and they sent me to a gate. The destination at that gate was correct, but the wrong flight number. I asked the agent there, and they told me that my flight was for 8:30 p.m., not a.m. The telephone agent set me up and dumped me for a 12 hour layover while letting me think it was an immediate connection. When I tried to change that at that gate, the agent there got me on standby for connection through Portland, my original route. They wouldn't give me a guarantee out of Portland however until around 8 p.m. I went to the first standby gate and related this story. The agent there, Mihee, got on the system. She took the time to research all routes. She got me a guaranteed spot on a direct flight early that afternoon to my final destination. Probably shouldn't mention names here, but Mihee was fantastic."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Changed gate, very late."
Pros: "Everything went smooth, it was a short trip. I would fly Alaska Airlines again"
Cons: "Flight to SEA/TAC had USB outlets but the flight back to SAC didn't"
Cons: "The seats are too close, not enough leg room.."
Cons: "Nothing. All good"
Pros: "Generally everything. It was a nice flight for my first time being on a 747 series plane. I've only been on a twin prop. It was smooth from take off to landing. Loved being up in the air."

Pros: "Timeliness of crew service and boarding."

Pros: "Very on time flight. Not strict with baggage."
Pros: "Phone chargers! Best idea ever"
Cons: "When the flight attendants came thru with dinner offers I was not offered a dinner. When they came thru with drinks I said yes but I also wanted a dinner but wss not offered one. The attendant was very hostile and said well there are a lot of you and only a few of us. We're gonna miss some people. What do you want I can get it. But it wasn't a friendly offer, it sounded more resentful. This was an almost 6 hour flight. Later when they went thru again to offer snacks they made a big production to ask me loudly if I wanted one. Even opening her eyes very widely and saying are you sure? I could tell it was because I had complained earlier. But I didn't even really complain. I just said I didn't get offered a meal, on an almost 6 hour flight, and I wanted one."
Pros: "Quick boarding process and take off. Flight was slightly late but the staff expedited boarding and take off. Staff is friendly. Service was great. Beverage service was great. Baggage was quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled - we were moved to an Alaska Air flight. That is why all of the NAs. What was good is that the moved us to another flight in a timely manner. Also, the gate attendant kept everyone informed of what was happening."
Cons: "On time flight"
Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"
Cons: "My monitor isn’t really working after rebooted. And the audio hole wasn’t tight enough"
Cons: "The wrap didn't taste too well."
Pros: "Crew and generous pours of wine"
Cons: "The food was at best edible"
Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."
Cons: "Was not allowed to check in even tho flight was delayed. Horrible!"
Pros: "That we finally arrived."
Cons: "That we didn't arrive even remotely close to when we were supposed to."
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."
Pros: "Total Experience of Flying on this Airline ."
Cons: "No Comment."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "It was short and fast."
Pros: "Great flight attendants and very clean"
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."
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"
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Great service, polite staff"
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats, even for my girlfriend, who is 5'6""
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "Having window seat"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"
Pros: "plane was farily empty. Who doesn't like that, other than Delta, haha. Nice workers, smooth flight."
Cons: "Delta comfort was very tight. I'm 6 foot tall and my knees were hitting the chair in front of me the whole flight."
Pros: "Timing and Service"
Cons: "Space between seats too reduced"
Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."
Pros: "the chick who worked the counter for the preboard flight counter was really REALLY nice"
Cons: "everyone on my flight was ugly"
Pros: "- took off and landed :) - negligible turbulence - captain's skill in landing in foggy Seattle weather was impressive. - coffee actually wasn't bad this time."
Cons: "- no individual displays - no individual air vent (this must have been a really old jet) - *very* cramped seats. I'm 6'2" and I barely fit in economy. The second someone reclines I'm in for an uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Dish TV"
Cons: "Pilots were coming from an international flight that was delayed. They then landed at the absolute opposite end of the airport AND had to clear customs. When we boarded they said the pilots had landed. 60 minutes later they arrived, 30 minutes after that we took off. Missed connecting flight in Seattle. Poor communication during delay."
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was 5 hours delayed. Finally rebooked and still missed all connections because that flight was late departing. All legs of this trip on delta were delayed. Lousy service ast attempting to resolve situation. Given a choice, I do not choose Delta as a first choice airline to fly."
Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."
Pros: "I liked the service of the crew members and the Margarita was super strong."
Cons: "The seats are really close together. It made it uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "The staff of Dekta were welcoming as well as helpful. The flight was professionally run and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "The auxiliary power went down before we took off. However, the flight captain assured passengers that procedures would be followed to assure our safety. We waited on the plane for 10 minutes and then took off. Thanks to staff for following safety procedures."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Kept us updated throughout a long delay."
Cons: "We should have reached our destination at 7:40PM. We finally arrived about 9:50pm. We were held at the gate for about two hours while a mechanical issue was solved. The plane was not equipped with WiFi/internet and the entertainment was poor. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "staff was friendly"
Pros: "This was my shortest flight for the day, just over 2 hours and it was a bigger plane, had monitors in the seat backs, served drinks and snack."
Cons: "I think entertainment should be free. There should be a charge for wifi, because people can survive without their computer/phone for a few hours. But, if you have already put the monitors on the plane, how much extra money per year would airlines lose by offering a free movie...?"
Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."
Cons: "Poor service. Will never fly with Delta again."
Cons: "They didn't land due to fog, making me miss all my other flights. Bags were not put on redirected flight to Beijing. Bags still missing 3 days later. Trip has been put on hold till bags arrive in Jakarta."
Cons: "We finally got toward the runway then had to sit there for about 25 minutes because there was a technical error."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the gate agent was efficient"
Cons: "We not only left 45 minutes late, but there was no beverage service on the flight."
Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"
Cons: "Not real happy with getting charged 25 dollars for a bag when I am MVP with Alaska Airlines, was under impression both airlines are together."
Pros: "On time, and great fare"
Cons: "The connecting flight I had to Seattle had a 30min layover, and was practically gated on the opposite side of the airport in SLC. I had to run in order to make the last-minute boarding. Kind of a cutting it close, but I made it none the less"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Seat were comfortable."
Cons: "Could of had a better selection of moves."
Pros: "The crew took care of my wife and I when our flights were accidently cancelled. Literally were the last people on the plane. It was unbelievable to see their efforts and patience. Completely grateful."
Cons: "flight was delayed 2 hours, could have been some better communication on the delay"
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Pros: "Always a pleasure when flying with Westjet. Crew is always better than Air Canada"

Pros: "Just a nice easy flight with zero issues"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Hard landing,cramped seats"
Cons: "Our trip got completely rerouted - we are still in Edmonton and expected to be with family in Regina a couple of hours ago. :((("
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "Such small seats, so hard to be comfortable"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
Pros: "Flight was excellent. Crew was very courteous and very friendly."
Cons: "The only thing I wish I had more was more other options for fluid besides water."
Pros: "Great crew. Excellent flight and we were even early arriving!!"
Cons: "Could not recline seat in row 30"
Pros: "safety first."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Poor service before boarding."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Delays are common yes, but the “system” to re-route or re book was a horrid FAIL. I’ve never encountered such inefficient system for something so common as a flight delay. Made a call to Expedia to make changes to hotel reservations and never got the call back for confirmation of requested changes."
Pros: "Short flight, great staff. No food or entertainment, so no rating"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "Pretzels, Biscott cookies still passed out along w free beverages. Free Entertainment on westjet wifi good too!!"
Pros: "Boarding etc was all fine."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "Excellent crew and customer service"
Cons: "The flight was 40 minutes late and boarding took 40 minutes."
Cons: "No sink in the bathroom...gross. Also, very very small seats."
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Pros: "Friendly service. On time"
Cons: "Not a direct flight"
Pros: "Fun, friendly crew on a boring routine short haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system was down."
Cons: "So there was a problem with the aircraft. Some cargo nett8ng was broken so they had to move the baggage from the rear to the front hold. The pilot can on to inform us of what was happening, assuring us that our baggage would arrive with the flight. B7t not surprisingly they lied and about 30 ppl didn't get their luggage. It never made it on the flight and won't be until the following morning. So I have no clothes. No jacket for sub zero temperatures. It would great if they could at least tell us that there will be a problem. Not lie I'm not impressed. I'll do my best not to fly westjet again."
Pros: "Seats. Great crew members"
Cons: "Having to pay for everything"
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Loading was an absolute disaster, never seen it so slow before"
Cons: "Late landing as usual and YEG's ground crew wasn't ready ... also as usual."
Pros: "No comments"
Pros: "The flight was on time, there was enough room for carryons in the overhead bins"
Cons: "I did not have any food or use the entertainment options so that’s why I scored them low as I don’t know how good they were."
Pros: "The people, the timeliness, the attitudes - all were great!"
Cons: "The choice of snacks could be more healthy - veggie cup and hummous maybe!"
Pros: "We are still going"
Cons: "Changes, changes, changes and delayed one day"
Pros: "The Crew and Boarding was fine"
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 4 hours. No separate accomodation or food was provided. Unhappy with the delay with no compensation"
Pros: "Staff are always fun and efficient, but the drinks came very late. In Asia, even if the flight is only 1 hour, they have the time to serve a lunch and clean up....."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient."
Cons: "No Entertainment system which was a huge deal for my partner, but I read my very good book and talked to my very nice seat partner."
Pros: "I like that it wasn't a huge plane"
Pros: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."
Cons: "Flight was late and kept getting later as the day wore on. Nobody seemed to know how late we were ultimately going to be and why. Missed my meeting."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have had. On time, Great service and excellent entertainment system. Plus seat had lots of room as well"
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Pros: "It was a good flight. Comfortable and on time."
Cons: "I rated food low as there wasn't any nor did I expect it. No problem."
Pros: "The staff was nice, they were very professional, efficient, and friendly, The seats were comfortable the plane was clean."
Cons: "Some of the announcements were a bit fuzzy."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "All flights boarded late, they ran out of food for purchase on long flights and the seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Airport Terminal waiting area was nice."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Cons: "Poor management and customer service."
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Pros: "Roomier seats overall, the headrest screens and USB ports are great!"
Cons: "We paid extra for seats with more leg room and got the same as everyone else. Why the charge? Our departure was delayed. The plane had some sort of fragrance regularly coming thru the ventilation that irritated my sinuses and made me ill. The water for the only service on the flight (for coach anyway) was warm and tasted odd. Cabin temperature was too warm (multiple logical arguments can be made for cooler temps over warmer)"
Cons: "Air Canada has completely gone down the tubes and super quickly."
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked Flight left early & arrived early No delays from AC"
Pros: "My 15 minute nap"
Cons: "The male crew member seemed to be having a rough day."
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."
Cons: "Employees very poorly trained in dealing with problems. While our flight was okay, the previous flight was overbooked and a number of transferring customers were bumped because their flight was late. I understand this is common practice, but the employees handled it VERY poorly, even yelling at the passengers when they voiced their dismay at what was going to be a very long layover after a very long international flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Only able to board because someone missed flight. Delayed flight by over 30 minutes."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "Flight was about an hour late due to crew problems."
Pros: "It was fine. :-)"
Pros: "Flight crews were great."
Cons: "Ground crews and Air Canada's booking system caused no end of trouble. Weather started the problem but human error meant an incredibly stressful rebooking, requiring three agents at ticketing plus the IT help desk just to figure out what the agent I had reached over the phone had done. In Quebec City not nearly enough agents to check bags; huge lines, people being shunted to the front so they wouldn't miss their flights."
Cons: "No legroom at all. Try to squeeze far too many passengers."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Sabrina, was fantastic. Quite friendly and helpful. You can tell she loves her job. She patiently answered questions and made the flight really pleasant."
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Short flight. Great service (got a soda and pretzels on a 30 minute flight)"
Cons: "Small, worn plane."
Pros: "I was really tired and the plane was full but I could nap. Baggage came quickly."

Pros: "We liked the entertainment options and the crews were very friendly."
Cons: "We didn't like not having blankets on the round-trip flights between Seattle and Toronto."
Pros: "Not really stands out as a positive."
Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."
Pros: "Very fast."
Pros: "I flew Seattle to Vancouver to Montrail to Nice. Sept 2 2016 on the way home I flew Nice, Frankfort, Calgary to Seattle Sept 12, 2016"
Cons: "Food from McDonalds would have been 10 times better than food they served. I ate only 2 bites and it smelled bad and made me feel nautilus."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to pick my seat. I love the exit row."
Cons: "Being woken up. But it was for a good reason. Personal safety."
Cons: "Air Canada closed the door ten minutes before departure although the knew we were in the terminal trying to get to the gate. Air Canada charged us $315 for a flight two hours later."
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."
Cons: "For the price, the length and the fact that it was an international flight. I would have expected not to be required to paid for luggage and to have some food been provided to us. In particular, after the return flight was delayed considerably due to airplane issues."
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "All the flights left late. Not enough room for carry on luggage. No free booze on International flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time.Seats were comfortable with adequate leg room."
Cons: "There was no snack offered, just food for sale, and it was a long flight. Also there were several movies listed in the entertainment guide that were not available on the entertainment system. There were not many movies available at all."
Pros: "I enjoyed the selection of movies that they had."
Cons: "Seats are wildly uncomfortable and cramped. I guess that is what you come to expect from flying, but man does it suck. Longer flights, over 4 hours, should include a complimentary snack. It is a long while to go without food, and paying 5 bucks for a small pack of candy is a bit ridiculous."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Seating is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. It was one of the least comfortable flights I've been on in th past few years."
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: "Their 787 is indeed a dream to fly! The flight felt much shorter than on other airplanes."
Cons: "Their website didn't work for checking in, then their offices were closed most of the time, with no 24 hr support, leaving me high and dry on several occasions when I needed to check in, and when I needed to make a special meal request."
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: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight and would not allow me to board even though I had booked my ticket months in advance."
Pros: "Very fast flight"
Cons: "In flight Audio didn't work"
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 was on time. Was able to move from my assigned centre of row seat to an aisle seat, which however was I'm the last row outside the toilets. Checked bag came quickly in Seattle. Descent was gradual enough, or something, that my ears, which normally hurt excruciatingly from about 20,00-10,000 feet, barely bothered me."
Cons: "Check in, customs, etc in Toronto was a series of long long lines that took nearly 1.5 hours (not AC's fault but an unpleasant aspect of the trip). Plane was full and very cramped, impossible to get up and walk. The tv monitors on my side/half of the plane conked out midway through flight."
Pros: "Air Canada's cabin attendents make the journey bearable. Keep these people at all costs, becauae they are doing a fantastic job."
Cons: "I prefer the old-fashioned seatback monitor to rental ipads."
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: "Quick boarding."
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: "My chair didn't lean back and the entertainment monitor did not work for about 2 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours due to maintenance issues"
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."
