Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The entertainment system, the leg room, the toilets with complimentary tooth brushes. JAL hit it out of the park."
Cons: "Not one thing."
Pros: "Flight was typical."
Cons: "No direction for the connecting flight and no help to understand the connecting flights."
Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."
Pros: "33" seats"
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding!"
Cons: "I would have liked the ebooks section of the entertainment options expanded. I love to read and that would have greatly distracted from the discomfort of having to sit so long in such cramped quarters."
Cons: "Nothing. This company deserves its reputation for excellence."
Cons: "Had serious and consistent blockage to receive seat assignment from AAirlines. Round trip ticket with JAL but they code shared lax to tokyo with AA. Later AA refused to let me change THEIR seat assignment (3 scattered middle seats in economy). unless I bought an upgrade. They also said tic"
Pros: "Food, service,"
Cons: "Some crazy flight itinerary they should not sell at all! At first I thought layover was same location only to find out it was another airport across of time. Flew into ITM and flew out KIX and boarding ticket it says only OSAKA so I didnt know. I barely made the flight....if they had accommodate the transportation I would understand. But they tell you, you have to make it there on your own. Another CRAZY information is that I thought at the very least the baggage will be transferred. But nope! You have to pick up the baggage and ride the train across town to the other station. Whoever made this itinerary should be really fired and no longer work at this company. You take a great airline and make the experience so bad."

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Flight was long. Didn’t get my seat preference"

Pros: "Amazing service. Delicious and plentiful food. Larger seats with more leg room. Quick and efficient boarding."

Cons: "Sorry, my seat really uncomfortable..."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to another airport and when we finally got to Tokyo, the next flight's gate had closed even though it didn't leave for another two hours. We had to wait in a huge line to get rebooked and it was clear the Japan Airlines employees did not know what they were doing. Put me on a flight next day and couldn't even provide hotels for us (gave us $100 to find our own which was near impossible at that time). I had to sleep in a sleeping bag in the airport overnight by myself."
Pros: "The space, the courtesy of the staff, the food. Loved the noodle breakfast."
Cons: "Could not understand the announcements ... what a thing to "complain" about. Could not choose out seats online."
Pros: "food was great flight attendants are courteous and reliable"
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."
Pros: "Service was exceptional and good was good. Everything was to my expectations and would certainly use Japan Airlines again"
Pros: "Couldn't ask for anything more than what was offered. Flying is never exactly a pleasant experience, but JAL makes it as painless as possible. Food was excellent and staff were extremely helpful and professional at all times."
Pros: "excellent seat space, friendly flight attendants, would fly with JAL again."
Pros: "The cabin crew is very nice , pleasant & the captain did a great job!"
Cons: "Maybe a change in your food menu that you can include some continental items."
Pros: "I didn't die"
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, headphone jack barely worked and the screen was scratched to hell"
Pros: "Service was excellent - Flight attendants were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and rebooked for 6 hours later. We did not get notification of this change. My gluten free meal was not on the flight that was changed. All the airline reps that I spoke with were very unhelpful."
Pros: "The crew's attention to detail, service."
Cons: "Sort of bumpy flight."
Pros: "I loved flying JAL! I've flown several times between the US and Korea, and this was the best trip I've taken thus far! It was comfortable, the plane was awesome with high ceilings and it actually felt quite spacious. The entertainment was also perfect with tons of stuff to choose from. The best part, though, was their exemplary customer service! I needed to transport cold insulin, so at the gate counter I checked with the gate agent to see if they could refrigerate my insulin since I had a long travel time to my home destination. She promptly found out for me and talked to the flight attendants and told me they would take care of it when I got to my seat. She even checked to see if I needed a special meal or not after I finding out I was diabetic. They were so kind! They even let me refreeze my cold packs in their freezer before landing so I could keep my insulin cold after we landed. It was a huge help and they seemed genuinely concerned for my well being and what I needed. I will now fly JAL whenever I can!"
Pros: "This complaint is more targeted at American Airlines, which handled the New York Washington leg of the trip. They provided free food such as sandwiches and drinks at the gate due to the 2 hour delay."
Cons: "Red eye flight delayed for 2 hours. Then delayed another hour on the runway. No in-flight enternmaint, which would have made it bearable. Descent into Washington Reagan National freaked me out because the plane was flying eratically while being so close to the ground and recognizable landmarks."
Pros: "Everything from check-in to boarding was easy, clearly outlined, and succinctly instructed. The attendants were very kind, attentive, and caring. Announcements were in multiple languages, and very easy to understand. The flight was only 2 hours long, but even during that short time, they maintained great professionalism and polish. They even retrieved and stowed a bag multiple times for an elderly passenger without complaint, and frequently checked on him to see if he needed anything else. Quite nice to see!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the random PA interruptions for nothing on the entertainment screen. a minor nitpick on an otherwise wonderful flight!"
Cons: "Screen was small and movies start at certain times."
Pros: "cleaner plane would be nicer. quieter plane would be nicer. Seating for premium class could be COMFORTABLE."
Cons: "cleaner plane would be nicer. quieter plane would be nicer. Seating for premium class could be COMFORTABLE."
Cons: "Threatening to bump my wife due to overbooking, while we are midway through a two leg Alaska flight was beyond the worst experience I’ve ever had in fifty years of travel. How can you bump a pass like that, after flying your first leg?"
Cons: "Tarmac delays"
Pros: "Boarding from two doors. Good views on the trip."
Pros: "Amazing crew! Nice comfortable seat and leg room. Good food and entertainment. Clean airplane. Luggage delivered quickly to baggage area."
Pros: "I was able to get to my seat with no issue and the staff was super nice"
Cons: "I'm a Big & Tall guy. I had an extremely awkward time using the lavatory, The seats were cramped, and i had to push back on the guy who was trying to lean back in his chair. the newer plane seats are nice and way better."
Pros: "I like that they allowed active duty to board along with first class etc.."
Cons: "I was asked to move to a different seat in order for a family to sit together. i was happy to do so however i was at the very front of the plane where the restroom was and where the flight attendant was messing around with all kinds of cabinets and drawers the whole time. I had already been awake for 20 hrs traveling and that seat was so loud i couldn't sleep. it was also FREEZING and i was trying my best to wrap up in my scarf but I was surprised the flight attendant didn't offer a blanket. Why was it so cold??!?! My other flights were if anything warm but that flight was miserable."
Pros: "Pleasant airline staff"
Cons: "You had to rent in flight entertainment and pay for most food (minus pretzels)"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is great."
Cons: "I didn't realize I didn't pick a seat, so I had to sit in the middle. For a redeye flight, I really wasn't happy that Kayak didn't mention to reserve a seat on Alaska's website or when I checked in to my flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very welcoming and nice. Also, the overall look and interior of the plane was well kept and clean."
Cons: "I was really excited about flying with your airline, as I have been told by many how awesome it is. However, I was on a red eye flight, and though excited to fly with you, knew I would be needing some sleep for this particular trip. I selected my seats online and boarded the plane. Shortly after takeoff I went to lean back for a restful sleep, however, the seats didn't recline at all. There was no mention on the site of this when selecting the seats. This is kind of important to some people. I'm disappointed in my flight, and the experience I had with this. I probably will not fly Alaskan airlines again."
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane clean. Took off on time, landed on time. leg room was decent. Seat profile is thinner with a hard foam, not uncomfortable but different, this is what improved the leg room."
Cons: "This was a redeye with 180 or so other people. The guy in front of me had his seat back all flight even when the crew said raise the seat backs for takeoff and landing. Seats were difficult to sleep in, head rest while adjustable is thin and gave no real head support, at the end of the flight my neck felt like it had whiplash. No food, on a 5+ hour flight, it was overnight, but the seat head rests made sleeping difficult."
Pros: "Ease of boardong and on time"
Cons: "again I missed the connection in seattle. AK Air did book me on the next flight. that actually was also too fast of connection. after it took 45 more minutes to get secure and leave the international baggage re-check in seattle. I had to run like the wind to make the later flight. next time I walk slow and just let the flight insurance company pay for a hotel and morning flight. screw these on-line reservations. the airlines are NOT code share, they have zero reason to help a person connect and don't. so I will use a REAL travel agent next trip for a real code-share connection all the way."
Pros: "Friendly crew. On time flights"
Cons: "Check bag fee"
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly"
Pros: "How can you like an airline that allows morbidly obese people to buy one seat?"
Cons: "I had to endure five hours sitting next to a 350+ pound man whose body took about a quarter of my space. There was no way to move with a fully packed plane so I sat twisted in the little remaining room. I paid for a full seat but all I got was a wrenched neck and back."
Pros: "One of the shorter flights I had for my trip. Was quick and easy. Would recommend Alaskan Arlines."
Cons: "No fault of Alaskan Airlines, but I didn't like that my final flight had a long layover. So happy to finally get home quicker than had been expected because we made good time in the air."
Pros: "Employees were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seating was pretty cramped. Food and entertainment not applicable."
Pros: "Good service in flight | Departed on time | Arrived early"
Cons: "Gate was changed within 20 minutes of boarding."
Pros: "I like the fact that we arrived earlier than expected. Save trip!!!! Clean plane!!"
Cons: "The seats are a little close behind one another. The snack wasn't the best for such a long flight."
Pros: "Checking in was easy. As long as you have your confirmation number ready you are golden!"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay for my luggage at check in was a horrible surprise. I thought one luggage check came with the price of the ticket and was included in the fare. Guess not! I had to use 75$ of my vacation money for luggage there and back!!!"
Cons: "The dates were wrong and when i tried to change it was not possible. No customer service"
Cons: "Was unfamiliar with Seattle airport .. no one around during the wee hours in the morn when I arrived .. finally saw a worker who directed me to the Alaska airlines gate. Had to take three trains to get there, Not the fault of the airlines, just an annoying experience for me."
Pros: "We were able to pay the extra $30 per person to get premium coach seats. The extra leg room made all the difference and the seats even seemed to have more lumbar support than usual. Crew was full of smiles. We've never had trouble with checked bags on Alaska and this flight was no exception."
Cons: "We think those who carry on should have to pay for that luxury! Maybe it would get rid of that mess as people are getting settled upon boarding the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "They didn't have blankets or pillows, not even on the red eye!!!! WTF???"
Cons: "Can't believe you charge for the internet!"
Pros: "Friendly and very sharp hostess and very clean aircraft and loved the thoughtfulness of having head support on the seats. You earned me as customer away from Southweat."
Cons: "Stating that you can't use front restrooms instead of stating that you can use front rest rooms if back is backed up or you have hostess blocking the aisle for rear restroom."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Really easy and comfortable"
Pros: "The flight crew was very accommodating and friendly, not only to me but, to some passengers that needed a little extra assistance. In the Coach section there was plenty of legroom."
Cons: "On my flight from Seattle to Phoenix, though the legroom was plenty, the cushion for my buttocks was a little thin and worn."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Passport card not valid for travel, could not take flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Although I wasn't able to choose a seat when I booked my flight at least I got a good seat when I got to the check-in counter"
Cons: "No leg room or pillows for red eye flight"
Pros: "LOVE the free wifi - can't tell you how wonderful that is when you have a 2+ year old who loves watching videos, etc. Crew was incredible kind and patient when my husband was walking the aisle with our baby (trying to get her to sleep)."
Cons: "Nothing negative on this flight."
Pros: "Super friendly crew. Good movie choices for renting the $10 tablet, glad I "splurged". The cheese/fruit tray was a good sized portion. I love that they RECYCLE!!!"
Cons: "It was just a little on the hot side in the plane before take off, but I don't think that is something to blame the airline for?"
Pros: "Short shuttle flight, did not expect a five star service."
Pros: "Even the ground delay was handled so easily it was not a problem."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very nice in this day and age where people are often treated as numbers only."
Cons: "nothing in particular."
Cons: "Another flight, another last-minute gate change"
Pros: "The pilot! He was so funny and got us all in a great mood for a long flight! Oh.. And plane was practically brand new! Very nice!"
Cons: "Nothing all great!"
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was smooth. The flight attendants were so accommodating and seemed to really care about the passengers."
Cons: "The seats are too close, not enough leg room.."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, gate staff not helpful"
Pros: "Willingness to accommodate customers"
Cons: "Not having access to wifi all the time"
Pros: "Boarding went very well. The credit was extremely helpful and responsive."
Cons: "Not enough room for individuals with broad shoulders. I felt as though I were either invading my neighbour's space or hanging out in the aisle."
Cons: "One of the crew members was so rude. He bumped into me not once but TWICE and didn't apologize or even acknowledge that he did it. On top of that, the same crew member took my glass of wine and threw it in the trash without my permission. It was still over half full. Very rude. Do not recommend. I think his name was Patrick."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew, quick boarding. Food was okay. Overall a great experience, and always enjoy flying with Alaska over other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Do they ever take a break???"
Pros: "Travelers well spaced out"
Cons: "Nothing given the current circumstances."
Pros: "Crew good! Seats uncomfortable as usual"
Cons: "Transfer of luggage from one plane to this Victoria flight. Delayed 30 minutes."
Pros: "Great flight. No problems."
Pros: "A very enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was packed full of people who all seemed to be coughing and sniffling."
Cons: "More leg room, more air conditioning"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "WestJet great airline"
Cons: "YYC new Gate “C” poorly organized"
Pros: "The staff are very professional and friendly."
Pros: "On time - lots of legroom (after previous flight on Q400)"
Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "The screens were so old and bad that it would be a total waste of money to pay for the PPV channels. Seats were hard and unconfortable"
Cons: "Their check in was not a boarding pass which prevented me from using Quick Connect from Immigration. So I reached the terminal counter art the FAR end of the terminal with 15 minutes to apare. The agent told me that wss not enouhh time to make the flight. I had to wait almost 4 houts for the last flight if the night to get there"
Cons: "Announcement from the flight crew inaudible. Much too fast and with lack of ununciation"
Pros: "Plane, stewardesses on the plane"
Cons: "Where to start. Booked a higher priced ticket as layover was minimal. Westjet later emails, saying layover is now 7 hours?!?! We booked a connector with air canada with only a 2hr layover. We decided to keep the checked bags on the Westjet later connector to be less hassle. Westjet agents at airport did not mention that you cannot do that. So it wasn’t until we arrived at the layover point, we were told we had to pull the bags and re-check them in with Air Canada, go through the whole rigamarile of checkin, baggage check, and security. Not something you want to deal with when you are at the tail end of a red-eye flight. So thumbs down. In Westjet’s defense, they did give me a 200 dollar credit toward a future flight when I kicked up a fuss about the change to a 7-hour layover."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 and a half hours but everyone was friendly."
Cons: "Very poor attitude of cabin crew. if they don’t want to serve the “guests” get another job."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Having only one bathroom at back of the plane was a surprise ."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Seat cushion was horrible and I paid for plus."
Pros: "Seats could be a bit bigger for tall people."
Pros: "Fast connection, friendly crew."
Pros: "The friendly service and prompt boarding!"
Cons: "The snack options. Veggies and hummus would be nice!"
Cons: "Not any bodys fault the crew were trying to be supportive. multiple babys all around the area beside accros and a few rows down. maybe set them all to teh back would be better"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and was very helpful!"
Cons: "I found the rows a bit tight together leading to a little less legroom then I would like but this is standard with almost any airline."
Pros: "Getting into Victoria befor evening"
Cons: "Delayed, no pilot, no communication."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly as were the security agents."
Cons: "west jet did a poor job of scheduling maintenance staff."
Pros: "A 2.30 pm flight got in the air at 8 pm. The weather was beautiful at 2.30 and the weather was it turned terrible at around 7. At which point we were skeptical to fly."
Cons: "All my plans were ruined. When we got to Logan, our luggage was missing."
Pros: "I preordered a Chopped Leaf salad and would do again. I like that West Jet loads back of plane first."
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn’t available from Vancouver to Toronto."
Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "The overhead bins are now too small for a large number of carry on luggage that meets the criteria of carry on. If you wheel your now over sized carry on to the gate they will stow it below for free. If you check it they charge you $26.00 knowing it won't fit in the bins anyway."
Pros: "Charlotte and Johnny spiced up the safety brief with some humor, it definitely made the flight more enjoyable and to have a friendly, funny and relaxed flight crew."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about this air line. Las 4 flight have been late..,,,,,,,,,"
Pros: "The staff were so helpful to travellers with small children and elderly travellers. They looked like they really enjoyed their jobs...Well Done Christine S North Vancouver"
Pros: "Very friendly crew !"
Cons: "It was delayed because they couldn't find the stewardess. So made me late for my plans , but other then that it was good . The crew was excellent on both flights"
Pros: "Helpful polite staff. Many great movies and tv shows to select from."
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an uncomfortable, small, non reclining seat."
Pros: "On time, luggage arrived even with yer short connect in Calgary"
Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "This flight and the one before we're both delayed by over an hour. What's worse is each time we ended up spending about 20-30 min slowly driving around the runway since the takeoff queue was backed up so much. Maybe not the airlines fault for that but the pilot never said a word about it and kept us in the dark. Each flight was in total delayed by several hours. It seems more often than not these days that flights are delayed and are totally unreliable. I've come to hate flying."
Cons: "Boarding in the rain is definitely not a good experience! The flight delayed so long that some of us who had connecting flights had to run from gate to gate (including clearing Canada customs) within 20 mins. Last but not least, Taipei Taiwan should NOT be listed as China."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Overhead bin storage too small for 70% of passengers. Crew had an attitude that was not pleasant"
Cons: "Unreliable flight, always late, not staff at the check in terminal"
Pros: "The onboard flight crew were very friendly."
Cons: "We were traveling with an infant and there was no pre boarding call. They took wheelchairs and then just started zone 1. The seats are so uncomfortable, it feels like a lot of the padding has been removed for weight. I am 6’2” and there is just not enough room to sit comfortably in a 3 seat row. If we can avoid flying Rouge , we do."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."
Cons: "Both Air Canada flights were late The agent responsible for boarding was an angry person"
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."
Cons: "Cancelled one flight, then delayed another one because they were waiting for a pilot. They offered very little help, citing that they couldn’t control the weather, meanwhile WestJet is finding & paying for rooms, shuttle buses and taxis to make the delay more tolerable and less stressful. We could only watch and wish we were flying WestJet."
Cons: "I was unable to board because I didn't have an ETA - I was unaware of this requirement until check in. I was only transiting thru Canada - the ground staff were horrible."
Pros: "Crews attention and ease handling medical travel"
Cons: "2 hour delay. Missed the connection in Vancouver in which crew could not be found and were not helpful. Ended up using another airline's counter for help to catch another flight out. Luggage was left in Vancouver. Eva Airline helped with luggage location and shipping to final destination."
Pros: "Flight attendant was helpful when I had a personal health issue."
Cons: "Pay for snacks on a 5 hour flight? What do you really get for a ticket that cost over $500. US? I paid for noodle soup. They gave me a fork to eat it after they bumped into me and spilled the hot liquid on my sleeve and slacks. Then when I went to eat it I realized that the noodles were not cooked through. they were rubbery. the liquid was tasty, but with a fork how much can you taste. Ended up giving it back after eating about 1/4 of it. Seats had no leg room even though was a larger plane. Had restless leg from the very beginning. Legs were in pain the whole time."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."
Pros: "Nothing. NOTHING."
Cons: "It took two hours to check my bag at the airport. The plane engine needed to be jump started, and I missed my connection flight to Paris. I had to spend an entire day stuck in Toronto, sick from terrible Hotel and airport food, cheap vouchers for terrible food, I missed my traveling companion who made the flight to Paris. I left my hat on the plane after the terrible flight in which they refused us any basic courtesies for the numerous passengers who were about to be stranded, and then the grooming crew kept my hat instead of turning it in to lost and found. Best part? Customer service told me that since I booked via Kayak, that I was not a valued customer and that they would not extend any courtesies to me for destroying my work trip itinerary."
Cons: "Took forever to board"
Pros: "The entertainment system was fine as far as selection goes."
Cons: "The stewardesses were ranged from okay to outright grumpy though I understand how difficult it is to always be pleasent when working long hours in a confined space in the customer service industry they still failed me on this."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I was too tall for the seats and the person in front of me was unable to put there seat back, they wanted me to trade with someone else but the. I just would have been a problem for someone else. The steward made me feel as though I was at fault because I should have payed the extra 100 to have emergency exit seating, they tried to get me to sit in the very back row of the plain and sit sideways across the two seats which means I would not be able to sit next to my fiancé. The whole thing was embarrassing and very rude, maybe people of 6'6" should be charged for emergency exit!!"
Pros: "good movie selection"
Cons: "The seats are small and I was wedged in the middle. There was little to no water service. Only one drink cart and as I was at the back it took 1 hour and 45 minutes into the flight to get a glass of water. Terrible."
Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."
Cons: "An hour delay and mix up at which loading gate. Received ten minutes of free wi fi as compensation. Food would have been better as wi fi didn't work."
Pros: "Service in the cabin was great."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Comfort. Individual screens"
Pros: "Superb experience all around....comfortable, clean, good entertainment, on-time, good food curteous crew!"
Cons: "Nothing- we will definitely travel with you again!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was an overnight flight and we had our seats changed to the back row without being told. The seats would not recline and when the seats in front of us reclined for the entire flight, the screen and chair were about a foot from our faces. This was hands down the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew Wulf not move us as the flight was full, and despite there being more than half of the first class seats available, they would not let us sit there. I will likely not fly air canada again given this experience."
Pros: "Food was good, service good in business cabin"
Cons: "We left late, and despite it being obvious we were going to leave late, all the information posted at the gate and on the web said on time. Why is it that airlines don't tell the truth about departures and arrivals times?"
Pros: "all good, air canada is so much better than any us airlines"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had to pay again for the priority seats on the rescheduled flights, but still have not gotten refund on the priority seats on the cancelled flights."
Pros: "Plane and crew were great"
Pros: "Didn't have much good with air canada. Some of the worst customer service I've experienced. Flight was fine."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late, made us miss our layover even though they said they were holding our following flight to Tokyo. The both of us along with 10 others on our flight got to the gate 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave and they wouldn't let anyone on. Missed the first day of our honeymoon trip along with unrefundable hotel fees. I travel a lot and never had an experience like this before."
Pros: "I accidentally left my tablet behind when I disembarked. The crew located it and brought it to me speedily while I waited in the baggage area. I'm truly grateful and impressed. All of the flight crew were delightful and thoughtful."
Pros: "The flight was less than an hour. So I don't expect anything."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Why is there no TV?"
Cons: "40 min flight delayed for 1 and a half hours. Missed connecting flight. Staff was extremely rude to the hordes of people inquiring about missing their connecting flight, and were given different instructions."
Pros: "On time. Luggage arrived within minutes. Great Service."
Pros: "That the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "When I flew to Toronto the plane left 15 mins late but arrived an hour an twenty min late. No turbulence or trouble, just late. I stepped off that plane to my connector to Paris when boarding was suppose to start but that plane was on an hour delay. The food is just horrible, anyone who has flown knows this, and on both flights first class was the only priority. They got to everyone else when it was convenient. This was my first time flying with Air Canada and will certainly be my last. I'll happily pay a little more for the other airlines. So if you fly with them, good luck to you."
Pros: "New plane lots of comfort"
Cons: "Canadian airport very confusing got lost twice even with directions."
Pros: "Normal economy flying, you get a seat and line to the bathroom. I am thankful we are not traveling the old ways. I am over expecting too much when you don't pay much for it."
Cons: "Paid for breakfast but did not get it. However, I did not say anything to the attendant."
Cons: "When I arrived in London my bag was not on carousel. I went to help desk to find out my bag was put on the next flight for some reason. No explanation given and no real accommodation given except telling when the flight would arrive. I guess I luckily only had to wait an hour, however it shouldn't be that way to begin with."
Pros: "I never could take this flight as Air Canada, with its unwelcome policy, needs a transit visa to change flights in Toronto. The sad part is, vayama and Air Canda (mis-spelled on purpose - deserves even less respect) do not even offer a partial credit if I want to cancel. Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"

Never am I going to use any of these or perhaps visit a bass-ackwards country like canada"
Pros: "Air Canada has the best food, most leg room for economy class and super efficient. I will be using Air Canada often in the future."
Cons: "Delayed for almost 2 hours but keep saying just 50 minutes late"
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."
Pros: "Got on as standby - very helpful staff"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Everything was fine. The plane is pretty spacious."
Cons: "Had to pay for food on an international flight??? One bathroom in the back, and flight attendants were blocking the way to it for at least 70% of the time."
Pros: "This is 15 minutes so not much ever goes wrong. Get to altitude and then start decent."
Pros: "Plane was very clean, airline staff were nice, rebooking a flight was super easy (automatic and via email)."
Cons: "They are very strict with carry-ons, and their overhead bins are quite small. If you have a "pushing it' carry-on that fits with US carriers, assume it will not fit on Air Canada."
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work with Android 8.0 devices because you decided not to support newer versions? Stop restricting it to higher versions idiots"
Pros: "And it was actually terrific. United employees were top shelf at every stop, on every plane. (I did seven flights total.)"
Pros: "Not anything in particular, this was a pretty aweful flight. They at least gave out connection flight information and told passengers which flights would be missed and set those people up in hotels."
Cons: "Plane was fully boarded and as the crew was preparing the cabin, the pilot realized there was a mechanical issue. An hour and half of sitting on the plane with few updates and grumpy people and crew, air being turned on and off as they fixed the issue and no indication when we would actually take off. They should have offered some water and snacks at least and gave more frequent and better updates."
Cons: "Shitty service ,...."
Cons: "Majorly delayed, barely made my connecting flight, My poor body was so confused - "WHY are we up right now, WHY are we running so hard and carrying much weight." I felt exactly like I was finishing a cross country race trying to make my connection, then the gate agents made me check my bags, I'm looking at completely vacant overhead compartments and will never fly this airline ever again. No food. No drinks. Rude and disriptive attendants - let us sleep!"
Pros: "It was great!"
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Cons: "The seating was the worst I've ever had in my life and I've traveled my whole life. After I finish this trip I will never take United again. Everything else was wonderful"
Cons: "The flight was canceled because of the weather and then I have to wait more hours in the airport for the next flight.."
Cons: "Did not make connection due to flight being late"
Pros: "Sat by united pilot who was just on flight to go to training and was with my 10 mo old daughter and was absolutley wonderful, so helpful and Im sure it was not an ideal situation for him. On second flight we sat next to flight attendant and a trainee and made our first flight trip... that could have been awful great! Big thanks to all the staff."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "The gang stalkers that Kayak and United let sit next to me."
Pros: "The price was cheaper than the other airlines. The flight itself was pretty smooth with very little turbulence."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, and the coffee was way too strong, and there was no Splenda, only Equal, which contrary to the flight attendant's knowledge is NOT "the same thing." United provides only 1 cheap sugary snack for the whole 5 hour flight. Couldn't get my phone to connect to the internet b/c I didn't have my United Mileage plan number written down or recorded anywhere, and I didn't have the card with me. To top it off, there was a screaming toddler in the next aisle over."
Pros: "Rhe food"
Cons: "Custmer Service"
Cons: "The seats and headrests in particular were most uncomfortable for a 4+ hour flight. I was most uncomfortable on the flight and ended up with a pain in the neck!"
Cons: "I'm a normal sized man and the seats were terribly cramped. I likely won't fly United again as long as I have a choice."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I liked the legroom of Economy Plus. The flight itself was good. Didn't buy any food."
Cons: "We arrived late in Denver and had to sit at the gate and wait for the jetway person to arrive and connect the jetway to the plane. I also didn't like the fact that I had to buy Economy Plus because my wife and I were not only not assigned seats together after booking, we were not assigned seats at all. When I booked the flights I was only allowed to choose seats for the first flight - Charlotte to Houston...but not for the other three legs of our Charlotte to Seattle trip. The only two seats together from Houston to Seattle were in the very last row. And, on our return flight we had to purchase Economy Plus in order to sit together."
Pros: "Changed my seat to a better one"
Cons: "Plane an hour late taking off"
Pros: "Nice customer service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5hrs because there was no plane available to take us to our designation. Only flown united 2 other times and similar things happened on those flights as well. Definitly won't be booking with united again"
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "I liked the crew once we were on the plane"
Cons: "The plane was full and we were on basic economy. The folks at the gate were rude and unhelpful, at the United kiosk the personnel were openly hostile. Thank goodness the crew treated us with some decency and were very nice."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "The boarding gate attendants were rude and uncaring when we asked them to help us switch pre-assigned seats to ensure our two year old sat with us. While we might have understood better had they been empathetic, they were rude and uncaring and said when you book online you sign a waiver and they can not do anything about this. Wow. This was our flight back. Originally on the way to our destination we had used Delta and that customer service experience was completely different even though that flight was full too. Never flying United again as long as I can avoid it."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for almost an hour bc of ground stop in San Francisco"
Pros: "Great flight with very nice amenities"
Cons: "Seat did not recline so made the flight a very sore lower back experience."
Pros: "We got there on time!"
Cons: "In flight entertainment worked fine at first but then, halfway through my movie, it just kept stopping and trying to buffer. I tried to reboot my device, reset internet connections, restart the app, but nothing worked. Even though I had 40 minutes left in the movie and 90 minutes left on my flight, I couldn't finish the movie."
Pros: "Left on time."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Everything was cramped- not enough space to move. They completely ran out of overhead space. Completely crazy"
Cons: "One of the crew members was late to arrive, so boarding was delayed. However, The gate crew was amazing, very communicative and apologetic. During the flight the attendants seemed very agitated, I think a smile would go along way to improve the attitude of everyone. I also work with the public, I get that it is challenging, but I do believe that the simple gesture of a smile sets the tone."
Pros: "Cramped seatting, minimal food or beverage options and we were invited to provide our own entertainment. Pretty typical flight for ten or fifteen years ago. The crew was extremely pleasant. Very surprising and maybe the only saving grace."
Cons: "The airline is clearly trying to maximize profits by squeezing any comfort from the plane while still charging ludicrous amounts. Good for them. That's their free market choice. But do not then be startled that everyone is angry before, during, and after your flights. In the long run that's how you shed customers."
Cons: "Gate attendant recommended we check bags because overheads were full, but there were multiple empty overheads when we entered. This caused us an extra delay when we landed."
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "The time"
Pros: "Crew was very kind, helpful, and informative."
Cons: "Outlet doesn't have USB slot for charging. No TV screens for the seats on the flight."
Cons: "The leg room was abysmal."
Pros: "Nice employees."
Cons: "Four hour delay, caused missed connection. Had a 3 hour plus layover but not long enough. 17 hours SEA to LAX. Not sure there won't be more delays."
Pros: "The staff on the flight was great! They treated us like family. Great job. United Airlines."
Cons: "Wish the free in flight entertainment was available on the United app for this flight"
Pros: "When it was over."
Cons: "Had to wait, probably 5 minutes, while holding my bags right outside the plane for an employee to do something. The attendants were unfriendly, unknowledgeable, and not available. Crammed 3 of us in the seat before emergency exit row seats, about 1" from my knee to back of seat in front of me and a 90 degree angle back, although there were many, many rows with only 1 person in them. One woman had enough room to stretch out and sleep across all 3 seats. Our seats didn't recline but the row in front of us did which made it even more cramped. Tried to ask attendant to move but couldn't find one for over an hour. Tried to ask an attendant but he just walked by me. Pushed call button and he says oh you want to move? There's a seat over here, before I could see where, he walked away. Moved myself to a row with 1 other person who was angry she now had to share "her" 3 seats. She typed angrily all flight and kept putting her legs and personal items as close to me as possible. She used both trays to hold her laptop and spread herself out so I'd be uncomfortable. Could've been prevented if the attendant had talked to the woman first then moved me. Had to wait when getting my drink because the attendant turned to help others, 4 times, after she'd already asked me what I wanted. She got food for someone while I waited. She made change for someone while I waited. She walked away to do something for someone while I waited. She served someone else while I waited. Asked attendant where the electric plug in was and she said the plane didn't have one, I said the sticker says the plane does, she walked away. Worst experience ever. Won't fly this airline again because of this experience."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful. Comfort is OK but that's because we shelled out $35 per seat extra."
Cons: "Everything the customer service reps were very rude and condescending. United is awful I'm not sure how they are still in business. The rep refused to help me because she was getting off in 10 mins."
Cons: "My fiancé and I packed a suitcase together and it was 3lbs over the 50lb limit. They refused to let it slide and when we asked how much it would be if we left it they said it would cost us $100 for an oversized bag. We already paid the $25 so it makes no sense for it to cost $100 more. They were completely unreasonable and not helpful. Not to mention the flight was an hour late. Our flight on the way out was completely cancelled all together and no one bothered to tell either of us. Then they rerouted us on completely different flights! We had to basically throw a fit to get on the same flight, which ended up being 8 hours AFTER our original flight was supposed to leave. The entire experience was a disaster and I will never fly united again."
Pros: "Very nice and flexible people and boarding was easy. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very cramped tight seating and the stewardesses were a little lax. Also, the overhead speaker was not loud enough to hear if you're sitting by the window as I was. They have no control over turning it up and if there was something to do with safety I would be in trouble."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Full plane it felled very cramped."
Pros: "Blankets were provided"
Cons: "There wasn't any food or entrainment for me to rate."
Cons: "The worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Could not get seat assignment 24 hrs in advance. Website said see desk. Phone call to United said pay more $ get a seat. Had to check in twice, once with bags...still no seat...wait in line again at gate for seat."
Pros: "We incountered quite a bit of turbulence. The captain kept us informed and did his very best to assure a smooth flight."
Cons: "Can't complain."
