Cons: "3-4 hours flying and you just have cookies ? Coffee ? And the tablets to watch movies for real $30 bucks come on guys"
Cons: "The flights were fine, but I will never fly Alaska to Minneapolis and transfer to Iceland Air again.

From the full breakfast, great coffee and roasted, warm nuts...though very tired, I truly appreciated the recognition. Thanks!"

Pros: "Very quick and easy boarding system. And, very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was booked through Alaska Airlines, but facilitated through Sky West. At SFO, Alaska runs out of terminal 2, but Sky West out of the international terminal. I went through security at terminal 2, only to find out that I needed to leave security, get on the tram and return to the international terminal."
Cons: "The food is just terrible and we sat in first class. There was an only one choice and if you're a vegetarian, forget it, you won't be eating. The choice was a chicken salad that had a fishy taste. Your choices are better if you purchase a meal."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"

Pros: "Professional and friendly staff, clean plan, excellent service"

Cons: "They changed the departure gate 3 times and I missed my flight to MSP. I had to pay 600usd or a flight 13 hours later, spend the night in the airport and rearrange transport from MSP to my home in Duluth. I wonder if I could get reimbursed for the 600usd due to the irregularities in changing the departure gate so often; it caused me to miss the flight.."
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.""
Cons: "One hour delay was terrible"
Pros: "Ample legroom, comfortable seats, flight that reaches the destination early... wonderful for the price range. The team was also flexible to flyers changing seats because the plane was not full! Was very surprised by this level of flexibility and comfort from such an affordable airline!"

Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."

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: "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: "We took off on time and landed a little early. Crew were very nice. I couldn’t judge the entertainment as I didn’t have iPad with me to connect to the wi-fi and watch movie. Plenty of snacks. Worth the cost of the flight."
Pros: "Friendly service. On time"
Cons: "Not a direct flight"
Pros: "Had a fantastic experience on my first round trip with WestJet. Very satisfied, would definitely fly them again. I also liked how we were able to clear Customers BEFORE we departed from YVR; made the arrival that much smoother when we landed at SFO"
Pros: "Everything was fine with the flight except for the substantial delay of an hour in taking off."
Cons: "It was late taking off without too much explanation except they were waiting for a delivery of fuel it seems. We just sat in the plane for all that time. I wish they could have informed us earlier so we could have just waited at the airport."
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: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Loading was an absolute disaster, never seen it so slow before"

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: "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."
Pros: "Airport Terminal waiting area was nice."
Cons: "Changed planes, changed seats after paying for advanced booking. Service was poor, cabin was hot."
Cons: "I was really tired. Long line getting into the USA section. Argh. Let's just say I was grumpy and wanted to get home. Staff wss really nice."

Plane landed early but we didn't get to the gate until more than an hour later!"

Pros: "Friendly, helpful cabin staff"
Cons: "In flight entertainment worked only intermittently"
Pros: "Good cabin staff, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work properly and charging port only worked part of the time"
Pros: "I like direct flights. The foot room is quite adequate for normal sized people like ourselves. Staff were very friendly. Check in is fast through self serve when a person travels with carry-on luggage only."
Cons: "Our seat choices were extremely limited because we used self check-in and wanted adjacent seats. We were seated at the back of the plane for both flights even though the planes were only 65% or so full. Negotiating the aisles to the back of the plane is difficult for a 94 year old even if not handicapped or using ambulatory assistance. We only had carry-on luggage and did not wish to stand in line for a ticket agent. We felt slighted that young able-bodied single persons had closer seating. If we need to lie and say an elderly person is not ambulatory just to be given fair treatment, please indicate this in booking instructions."
Cons: "Terribly disorganized with security checks and confusion since no organized area to hold people."
Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."
Pros: "Great Workers, and Super nice staff."
Cons: "Jetway should not be backed up all the way to the counter. Stop calling so many groups for boarding without knowing that no one is actually getting onboard. Force subsequent groups to step aside until called."
Cons: "having people trying to shove baggage in overhead storage, this is ridiculous, shifting baggage from one bin to another just to make it fit, why not just store it all below. this would be a great idea, free baggage like it used to be."

Pros: "Flights were boarded efficiently and on time. Crews were courteous and helpful."
Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable seats ever"
Cons: "Do not bring blankets!! And the staff not nice"
Cons: "Too many levels of passengers"

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Advertised snack pack wasn't the one in the brochure. I had to pay for something I didn't care for. And couldn't put my purchase on my new AA MC because I am new."
Cons: "The wheel chair assistance that was requested for the passenger was not provided in Dallas and London."
Cons: "food was cold and the soda I had had no gas."
Pros: "All personnel where polite,helpful, and respectful. Greg to have wifi and power chargers."
Cons: "There was no real entertainment on the screens. No movies."

Cons: "20 min delay at Dallas International"
Cons: "Headphones should be provided in flights"
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"

Cons: "It was delayed for more then an hour."
Cons: "We where waiting for a free gate more thanan hour!"

Cons: "We will NEVER fly AA again."

Cons: "Did not allow me to sit in the location I had been assigned."
Pros: "Friendly and courteous service."
Cons: "Small legroom."
Cons: "Paying a checked baggage fee"
Cons: "The way they treath people."
Pros: "No delays, comfortable seating, got luggage quickly. Friendly personnel."
Pros: "I liked the service, the puntuality and the airplanes they were comfortable. I enjoyed it I hope my return will be the same."
Pros: "Nothing was overlooked. My beverage was always full and the kind gentleman who cared for the 1st class kept walking around to check all our needs. Excellent service!!!"
Cons: "Attention to details. Food was also delicious. Fillet mignon with lobster Mac and cheese. Yummy for my tummy, indeed!!!"
Pros: "Every thing was on time. Could not have been better."
Cons: "No food options."
Pros: "Online services"
Cons: "Security lines"
Cons: "Unnecessary delays"
Pros: "YVR is a great airport- lots of food and bathrooms and the gates are spacious."
Cons: "They ran out of food people would actually like to purchase and all that was left was cruddy Mac and cheese, pizza and truly awful sushi made by someone who has both never tried but inexorably hates it."
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."

Pros: "Convenient quick. No stop overs"

Cons: "Umm let me see. Oh yeah they lost my luggage and still haven’t found it. Pretty much ruined my whole trip."
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: "Originating flight got delayed . Air Canada simply declined to accommodate in the next available flight even though I had single ticket with Air Canada and AIr India completing the final sector from Delhi to Bhopal and back."
Cons: "Air Canada has the worst customer service I have seen in the industry. We paid over $1,200 extra for a short flight, but given their prioritization frameworks, when we missed our flight due to reasons they were partially responsible for, they made us wait over 12 hours vs. the 2 we paid for."
Cons: "no flights between noon and 9pm. pay for snacks..on westjet they were free"
Cons: "Cattle call"
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2hrs"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "entertainment screen on the back of the seat infant of me could not be turned off. That's the way its made- so forced. to see ads and endless lit screen all night. Never again!!! Paid extra fora seat with more room- I don't think I had more room- very small space- Never again- I'd rather walk."
Pros: "Easy breeze you flight and crew"
Cons: "This review is about Air Canada from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Our flight was cancelled the flight for technical reason, without a notice. We found out when we got to the airport with four children. We were put on a later flight that also left Los Angeles later than the scheduled time. We arrived to Vancouver so late that we could not make the latest BC Ferry to Victoria that left at 9:00 pm. We lost our hotel reservation in Victoria. We were stranded in Vancouver till we could find a hotel that cost us an extra $600 (US dollars), an extra reservation for the ferry and lost a precious half a day of our vacation. When we complained about this wasted time and money Air Canada did not utter not even a clear simple apology. It offered a lousy discount on our next flight with the company, believing that we may ever use such an uncaring company"
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"
Cons: "weather grounded non stop flight... required my finding a hotel for overnight... loss of MSP hotel, and two days rental car, too... costly and not reimbursable because "act of nature"... earliest way to MSP they said was via Nashville w/long layover... then connecting to Delta upon arrival in MSP, checked bag didn't arrive... it was filled w/medical equipment and AC couldn't tell us where it was... Delta bent over backwards to assist... AC was non-commital and not helpful at all... waited for incoming flights at the airport MSP for 8 hours... no bag... finally, Delta gave us vouchers for dinner and put us in a hotel... when it as really Air Canada's fault... etc, etc..."
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: "Short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Flight staff was nice."
Cons: "The plane was VERY tight. It is probably the plane with the least amount of legroom I have been on, very uncomfortable. The flight staff, although nice, was uninformed of the necessary paperwork to enter the DR and, as we landed, it made a big mess because no one knew what they needed and had to start filling out paperwork all at once."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism and friendliness of the AC information staff inside the gate area,especially when I was offered an earlier flight by almost two hours. The boarding process went smoothly. The flight crew was friendly, accommodating and efficient."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the least pleasant flying experience I've ever had."
Cons: "1. They scheduled me for an overnight layover FOR NO REASON when there were multiple flights leaving earlier to my ultimate destination. 2. The airplane food gave me food poisoning and I had to spend the night in the ER. 3. My flight the next morning was delayed by 3hrs. Meanwhile, other flights to the same destination were taking off with no problem."
Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."
Cons: "No complementary snacks despite going through dinner hours. Flight was delayed and disrupted connecting flights. Hard to understand crew explaining what to do to address delay"
Cons: "Not on time. I missed my connecting flight"
Cons: "Losing my bag, someone took it by mistake, but all turned out well."
Cons: "movie selection is poor and using your own device isnt that enjoyable. Girl at counter was demeaning."
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: "the crew members were friendly"
Cons: "that you don't give any snacks for price of ticket. at least peanuts or pretzels. that's ridiculous. southwest reigns."
Cons: "Our connection in Toronto was toooooooo short for seniors 70 years old."
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: "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."
Cons: "They try to board by groups but unfortunately they get the entire plane trying to stand in there group lines and don't load anyone for 15 to 20 mins. It congested all the walkways and people just change to the shortest line"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable even with an empty seat beside me. Vegetarian meal was not good at all. The general pancake option was gone before it even got to where I was sitting and the omelette was old school flights.. Which in this case was really bad."
Cons: "We almost missed our connection and no concern, communication, or assistance from crew. They should allow close timed flights priority thru process."
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."
Pros: "The flight attendants was very curtesous."
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: "These are a work horse for the AC Fleet, no entertainment but it is a relatively short flight."
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
