Pros: "Delta fo"

Cons: "Was delayed by 1.5 hrs and only received 1 alert about the initial 30 mins delay."
Cons: "I paid $48 for a carry on bag at the airport, I was never informed about this fee at any point during my purchase of the flight.

Pros: "Smooth flying. welcoming crew."
Pros: "Really like the wine and chips included."
Cons: "No entertainment options, but not a big deal considering how short all their routes are."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The complimentary drinks make the flight better."
Cons: "The agent spents too much time attempting to rearrange the line up rather than help guests check-in, causing a backlog. When issues were brought to them, they seemed disinterested in solving the problem - water was spilled in line and when brought to the agents attention she seemed annoyed."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, we were a bit delayed but they dealt with us as quickly and politely as possible."
Cons: "A better idea of what was happening when the plane had to be delayed-we all lined up, then they got notice that we couldn't leave yet."
Pros: "Fly was good."
Cons: "My luggage was broken and I had to search for an agent and had them called overhead by the information to declare it. Inconvenient +++"

Pros: "Staff was curtious and helpful. Also enjoyed free snacks"
Cons: "No charge port or app to watch movies"
Cons: "There is only 1 lavatory on the plane and early in the flight they had to shut it down! Luckily there were no incidents but how can you not have a working lavatory?! What would they do if someone really had to go?"
Pros: "I slept the whole flight"
Cons: "My flight on 8/18 was canceled last minute without any explanation. There was no customer support what so ever. I couldn't book any flight for the same day or the day after. They automatically booked me for 8/20, two days after my scheduled trip. It didn't work for my schedule. I had to canceled it and they offered credit for future trips instead of refund. can't get anyone to answer the phone and there is no way to get questions answered online."
Cons: "Delays terrible longing rude flight attendants rude gate attendants"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving, arrived in time to make a connecting flight, and sat on the runway for 30 minutes because all gates were full. Literally pushed the connecting flight out to depart so the plane I was on could disembark. Completely rude, booked me for the next day and left me in downtown Toronto at 10 pm with no place to stay. Cost 398 dollars at the cheapest nearby hotel, very nice hotel, but wtf? Customer service wouldn't even help to tell me how to get back out of the departure area."
Cons: "Delays! Delays!"
Pros: "Porter Airlines did a great job overall."
Pros: "Nice clean aircraft. Flight attendants were helpful and not rude. They tried to help."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with no explanation. No one called, the only reason I found out is because my phone has an app to monitor my flight. I was automatically rescheduled, also without anyone contacting me if this was okay and also without explanation. A few hours later that flight got cancelled as well. Again, no explanation. Again, no one contacted me. Again, the only reason I found out was because my phone told me. Again, I got rescheduled without anyone contacting me if this flight is in any way okay, or acceptable for me. This time around it wasn't. I tried contacting the airline, where no one ever picked up. I waited more than an hour on hold. Eventually I solved my own problem on the site, when someone rescheduled an earlier flight and I took the spot. Lucky me. As it turned out, I frequent the Toronto Islands area and someone there told me why my flights were cancelled: a dense fog. A pretty good reason. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, of course, there is a weather station right next to the airport and forecasts are readily available. Porter Airlines is unreachable, unreliable and disorganized: they had plenty of opportunities to assess and address the situation, contact me, and even plan for an alternative transportation for me. None of this happened."
Cons: "On the first leg Flight 720: 1. A Black man sitting behind me was challenged (and humiliated) by a Porter agent who came on the plane before leaving the gate, that he was sitting in the wrong seat. It turns out the agent was looking at his boarding pass for the NEXT next connection flight. That delayed the take off by 10 minutes. 2. Then while taxing away from the gate for takeoff, another Black man on the same flight whose mother tongue is not English nor French, did not understand that he had to remove his earbuds for the takeoff. He said he was confused by the instructions, so the the pilot decided he was "non-compliant" and returned the plane to the gate to have him removed from the flight, bring police on the plane. I am sure he lost a lot of money and will have future difficulty flying in North America. That delayed our flight another 40 minutes, and many of us missed our connecting flights in Toronto. I just have two wonder if a white passenger would have been given the benefit of the doubt."
Pros: "Fast check in and customs lines in both airports"
Cons: "The chips are pretty bland. I appreciate the free refreshments, but would like a bit of choice"
Pros: "The lounge. The shortbreads."
Cons: "The wait for departure. The arrival gate in halifax is a long walk to bags and rentall cars. 81 yr mom wirh me."
Pros: "Everything . Great flight crew and even with a slight delay over all was a great flight !"
Pros: "Unable to fly to Toronto. For anyone that does not have a Canadian passport, an electronic Travel Authorization needs to be completed when flying to Canada. As I was not aware of this form that needed to be completed prior to my travel I was not able to take the plane."
Cons: "I wished I had that information ahead."
Cons: "Massive delays!!"
Pros: "I worried about flying in a turbo prop plane but the flight was supriseingly pleasent. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay extra to pick my seat assignment but I understand that was only for the lower priced leg as there was no ectra fee for the "flexable" return leg."
Cons: "Small airport no amenities."
Pros: "The complimentary self-serve drinks in the boarding area which included sodas, water, espresso, coffee and many other coffee products."

Cons: "All of their flights are late. No running water on one of my flights."
Pros: "The snacks and quick boarding was good. Flight attendants were okay."
Cons: "No kiosks to check in. You have to check in at the counter, but if you check in early online you still have to check in at the gate. They have all these policies about carry on bags, but their plans are too small to even carry them on. All rolling bags still have to go under the plane. My seat was dirty and worn out."
Pros: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Everything was on time ,the flight was comfortable,snacks were also good . The attendants were very friendly and couscous. I'll fly with Porter air again . Edward"
Cons: "No entertainment on board ."
Pros: "One of the hostesses from Toronto to Halifax was one of the sweetest and caring people. She was the younger of the two women (for lack of her name) and I wish I had taken her name to be able to let Porter know how nice she was! She really made the whole trip so pleasant."
Cons: "The lack of in flight entertainment/"
Pros: "Not tons."
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "Porter was very poor at managing our expectations and ultimately providing a quality service. Our flight was deleted several times before it was finally cancelled and we had to take a much much later flight. 3:50pm ended up 9:40pm, taking into consideration the need to be at the airport 2 hours before our flight because it was trans-border. He reason was also absolutely unacceptable - weather. Really? Where? It was great in Dulles Airport Washington DC and fine at Billy Bishop Airpot in Toronto. No offer of anything. No we weren't expecting something. But an offer would have been awesome. Not our first Rodeo."
Pros: "That it was an hour flight and was late for more than hour."
Pros: "Flights delayed and no proper update provided."
Pros: "Great service!"

Cons: "Small, older plane."
Pros: "Seat comfort, flight attendance hospitality, service at counter and lounge service at Toronto"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, personable,joked around. I though boarding would take forever but very smooth."
Cons: "Honestly...being stuffed in like sardines ....it is getting worse. maybe the older I get the more I see it....but its so uncomfortable. I think the old days were much better!"
Pros: "Quick flight. Quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "Snacks are kinda lame."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."
Cons: "There was an almost 4 hour delay that WestJet is taking no responsibility for, and their online chat agents lack any compassion or understanding. Also received an email saying the aircraft changed and there would be a seatback flight entertainment system but there wasn't."
Pros: "Crew were nice, everything was on time."
Cons: "Need to use your own device to watch entertainment. No screens."
Cons: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."
Pros: "Roomie seat. Professional curdious crew. Fast smooth flight. Westjet connect access for entertainment."
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."
Pros: "Great and responsive crew, still-amusing WestJet wit. Very organized!"
Cons: "Some older (like 1940s-1950s) movies for in-flight entertainment would have been great."
Pros: "No frills. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin was way too warm. Also not as much space on 737-700 as 737-800"
Cons: "The entire plane smelt like the washroom, and a mix of engine fuel. I wasn't extremely thrilled about that."
Pros: "The staff on board made us completely forget we just experienced a terrible 6 hour experience in the hands of westjet from punta cana. The airport staff and security were efficient and all friendly. Helped us every step of the way. But again, a big thank you to the 4 flight attendants on the ws 254 to Halifax. Made our crappy day much better simply by being a friendly and happy face."
Cons: "Didnt like having to connect but understand that was to my own booking."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Cons: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "relatively inexpensive"
Cons: "my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me the flight left late, so arrived ~2.5 hours late"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and worked to get us boarded quickly because it was cold outside on the tarmac. The flight was smooth with a good landing."
Cons: "WestJet’s WiFi, to allow passengers to connect to the WestJet entertainment app, was not available on this flight which was a surprise. I don’t always enjoy flying and have some anxiety, so entertainment like movies or shows helps get me through flights. This flight was harder because I didn’t know that option wouldn’t be available."
Pros: "The crew are always great."
Cons: "The past few times my flight has been delayed"
Pros: "An uneventful and comfortable trip, well.. as comfortable as any aircraft gets :)"
Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Cons: "Very few options were available to redirect me to my final destination"
Pros: "Complimentary drinks"
Pros: "I would like to see more spacious and comfortable seating. They rest is inconsequential. Besides that, no complaints. Thank you."
Cons: "We did not like feeling cramped. This part of the world is breeding much bigger humans than before. Please make allowance for that. I had a tough time breathing...2 big guys side by side is a sorry sight in that limited space."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "While the flight took off 30 minutes late, the pilot made up the time in air."
Pros: "WestJet Connect, food, fast service on board."
Cons: "Time to take off. A flight attendant told us to go back and register the car seat before boarding, but it was not necessary. Waste of time."
Pros: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was somewhat delayed but everywhere it announced it was in time. Even at the luggage carousel upon arrival. Must keep the statistics up!!"
Pros: "Always love the crew."
Cons: "We were an hour and a half late taking off."
Pros: "The staff were very good jumped in by running with me in a wheelchair till we met up with a cart then next team met up and took me again in a wheelchair down elevator made it just on time"
Cons: "Not having my rides there’s that I set up and almost late"
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant, not full, on time and seats had electrical outlets and USB ports."
Cons: "They destroyed my checked luggage and refused to give me an adequate replacement. They also refused to cover for the resulting damages to my items."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival"
Pros: "Great atmosphere... entertaining staff, very pleasant."
Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"
Pros: "Everything was great!!"
Pros: "No stops,"
Pros: "Not long to go through checkin."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "I forgot sparge photo on the plane and only realized this when i was picking up my checked bag. A crew member was able to get it off the plane and bring it to arrivals for me. I was very thankful."
Cons: "Seating was tight; I was a little too close for comfort to the passenger on my left."
Pros: "Cleaniness and timing the most."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better since this is not a short flight."
Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing. Not good when they reduce the size of the seats to 17 inches most people shoulders are wider than that. No food service no snack no drink and just snarky empl"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "Lost baggage"
Cons: "They have it arriving with me. But cannot locate it. Normally they would know where it was."
Cons: "No compensation was offered when another plane hit ours and caused a 6+ delay."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "The airplane was new. It had power plug and entertainment at each seat. It has a fabulous selections of entertainment for all ages. Comfortable seats as well."
Cons: "The crew only came offered drinks 1 time for a 5 hours flight. They did come by to offer room temperature water mid way through the flight. Food choices were minimal."
Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."
Cons: "The boarding staff were very unprofessional. Will not fly American out of Reagan again."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly - which is something I have noticed between AA and United. United seems to be much more friendly and welcoming."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after 5 hours"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed departure; plane too hot to board on time after it arrived; delayed at Akron"
Cons: "Delay. Old airplane with sewer smell in back. Not a great experience."
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
Pros: "How nice the crew were through it all was great! Flight to D.C. was smolth too."
Cons: "Because of the fire in the Tower, all flights in the DMV area were cancelled that evening. I was unable to go to work the following day having to request off sick."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing exceptional. Pretzels and a bloody"
Cons: "Group boarding again"
Cons: "Completely ignored for beverage service"
Cons: "3 hour delay waiting for pilots"
Pros: "it was easy to check in and short layovers"
Cons: "planes were really old and uncomfortable, I could not sleep at all, the seats are ridiculously small and not fit for a grown up. One of the worst flights ever for sure"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Pros: "It was a good flight back to DC."
Cons: "Shaky landing."
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Cons: "Plane size"
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "The Boarding Was Fast And Easy, The Flight Was Even Early And On Time! The Crew Was Very Nice."
Cons: "There Was No Entertainment For A Almost 2 Hr Flight."
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "I took an aisle seat for more room Glad to be going home"
Cons: "Still not enough leg room"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
Pros: "Appreciated the extra legroom and food and drink service, even on a short flight. Crew seemed very friendly."
Cons: "It was way too cold. We shouldn't all be bundling up in scarves and jackets. I've noticed that European airlines manage nut to freeze the passengers, so three must be a way to adjust the standard temperature on planes a but more."
Pros: "It was my first time I was a little scared but not anymore it was a smooth ride. Don't change nothing keep up the good work. Thanks for letting me explore"
Pros: "Seemed to have more leg room than average. Generally fine. I got to my destination without incident, and that is the most important thing! But flying today is awful. Uncomfortable, unpleasant, stressful, etc., all so the airlines (and their CEOs) can make millions."
Cons: "Crew was "all business" -- not many smiles. They offered the usually .5 ounce of pretzels or two cookies. Passengers routinely asked "can I have both?" and the answer was routinely: no. Really? My $300+ ticket isn't worth pretzels AND two cookies? Seems silly. And, you know that have BOXES of these free snacks."
Pros: "Surprisingly the seats were not cramped as on other airplanesI have benn on"
Cons: "I wished there was no delay in Miami each way. Miami to Washington an overcrowded runway caused the delay"
Pros: "Honestly I enjoyed every little moment. I haven't traveled to Atlanta in 9 years and let's say traveling with AA is great. Starting from the check-in up until baggage claim in atl. Everything was speedy! I'm so happy that I went with AA I had a spectacular arrival."
Pros: "Allowed us to pre-order with our daughter who needed our support."
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Cons: "The crew was late because of an incoming flight they were rude to other passengers and seemed to have an attitude after a long day they made very few announcements but the flight went fast"
Cons: "They rebooked my flight to one with an overnight layover and informed me via email with no explanation. I rerebooked it myself to one which left the next morning and arrived sooner than their rebooking."
Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The television was in the aisle and couldn't be properly seen. Also there was no outlet charger."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Cons: "Bumpy landing in Charlotte. But it was windy and raining."
Pros: "Gate agent at DFW helped with a seat change so my wife and I could sit together--excellent seating in the exit row"
Cons: "Never got a complimentary beverage. The cart only delivered to some of the rows"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Cons: "Sat on the ground for an hour."
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."
Cons: "This plane and especially its seats are the worst. If your taller than 5'5" I recommend to look for other options."
Pros: "The flight was only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Gate 35x at National just doesn't work. A woman fell on the ice trying to get to the shuttle bus, on which we sat for a long time before leaving for the plane. After a chaotic boarding, the plane sat around as the flight became late, and the pilots gave no explanation for the delay or hint of when we might take off."
Pros: "Great crew, prompt take-off and boarding / de-planing"
Cons: "Seats were dated and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "I got charged for bags from Fort Lauderdale to Toronto than Toronto to Halifax"
Cons: "On the choice of audio entertainment, it uses Stingray which, just like radio broadcast for each category with no choice of album for personal preference, kind of disappointed. I like the previous menu with album choices."
Cons: "AC would always delay"
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "Rough air"
Pros: "Boarding very fast"
Cons: "Very small plane. No snacks offered."
Pros: "The steward on the plane was friendly, funny and accommodating to all. He took time to engage some young children before takeoff.

Cons: "Extremely cold on the plane"
Pros: "The entire boarding process, takeoff, staff were all good."
Cons: "The entertainment system went down mid flight and I was unable to finish watching a show. Not happy about this."
Pros: "Finding my luggage and sending it to me was the best part of this flight."
Cons: "Weather was the issue in Toronto on December 29, 2017. However, We're in Canada, Toronto specifically and we've dealt with weather like this NUMEROUS times. For Air Canada to cancel flights 2 times in a row without any further communications with any of us... To tell us when we'd be rebooked, how, etc. is horrible. I work in the transportation industry which is American based and we can handle this much better than Air Canada. Awful... Wendell/Gate Agent said he couldn't rebook my flight until the 31st, but when I got home I called air Canada and she was able to rebook me on the 30th with no issues. Nonsense. Wendell didn't care, he was tired, yawned in our faces like it was acceptable. Awful service. I'm flying with Air Canada on my way from India in the next couple of weeks I hope I get better service. Otherwise, completion will be my only option."
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"
Pros: "No food given. Flight was delayed on the way there because a crew member called in sick -- making me miss part of my work conference. No entertainment on the way back to NL."
Cons: "Would have preferred Westjet but they do not offer a flight from NL to PEI."
Pros: "on time."
Pros: "Quick easy flight. Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Kept us up to date and gave us a lunch voucher."
Cons: "We had a 4 hr weight in St John's"
Cons: "Connection was two short when flight was delayed 15 minutes would have missed next flight. Had to change to different later flight ended up getting into St. John at a very difficult time to try and find our way in a new place. Flew direct to St. John."
Pros: "There were no issues on this flight. My screen worked and the flight was ok."
Pros: "No wasted time, they load you up and get you where you want to be."
Cons: "Be sure to gate check anything larger than a small backpack or purse. There is little room on board for carry-on's"
Cons: "Delayed, missed connection"
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"
Cons: "Seriously? No free snacks? It's ridiculous that you want us to purchase snacks. Something small should be complimentary. Staff was in ok moods but a little edgy. The air was too cold."
Pros: "Nothing other than the staff is nice."
Cons: "Nothing stands out about this flight."
Cons: "See above. I didn't fly as I had scheduled."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly"
Cons: "Ground staff were terrible and the ground crew mysteriously disappeared. Air conditioning was not working on the flight while it was on the ground. All passengers sweating for an hour on the tarmac. Flight arrived 2.5 hrs late resulting in a missed connection."
Pros: "Great fast flight"
Cons: "flight was cancelled and I was offered a flight through Montreal with Long connections so I cancelled and flew the next day again through Montreal but with better connections"
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated and not functional"
Pros: "service, friendly attendants, amenities"
Pros: "Once we got underway it was fine."
Cons: "6 hrs delay! The flight delays were mostly unannounced and we were sent from gate to gate multiple times without explanation of what was happening. We arrived at 3am."
Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working, so I had no entertainment for the ride."
Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly aircraft was clean"
Pros: "Leg room was better than most airlines as was the food and entertainment choices."
Cons: "Our entertainment system was broken."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible."
Cons: "My tv didn't work"
Cons: "The plane was on the edge of departure when I rushed aboard. The server waiting at boarding had a patronizing attitude. As if to say, "Why are you late?""
Cons: "Cancelled flight and didn't even tell me a reason. They couldn't even make reservation for hotel. Hotel sent me back to airport because i didn't have voucher which AIr Canada guys said they can't make one? Everything didn't make sense. And they told me not to come again. They took like... whole day to book another flight. And i had hard time understanding what they were saying."
Pros: "Nothing - they were immature, unprofessional, nervous, unhelpful, and visibly shaken by relatively side problems."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours but not technically cancelled, which the ground crew blamed upon the flight crew and vice versa. The failure to cancel caused us to be unable to rebook, and subsequent avoidable delays arising from Air Canada's ineptitude caused us to be two,days late for arrival. The problem was solvable with some simple rebooking, but the ground,crew failed to assist, then the flight crew, when we finally left five hours late, was Impersonable, unhelpful, uninformed, and utterly unprepared. It was a terrible, second rate, poor quality experience and I would not recommend Air Canada to anyone. Your airline needs serious training in Professionalism and responsiveness."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating and the flight itself was great"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay and almost missed our connection"
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight was uneventful--just what I like!"
Cons: "There was nothing that I can think of.."
Cons: "I was not able to board this flight. And it was such a disappointment and a shocking first for me. I reached the airport and on being checked at the counter, I was told that I cannot board because I don't have a Canadian visa. It was shocking to learn that I needed visa for a 1.5 hour layover. The website should give a prompt or should share the requirements. And all my ticket money got wasted."
Pros: "No delays nice flight"
Cons: "I was very unhappy at check in area, long queue to check in then at the baggage area I was told by a staff member to put the baggage onto the scales then lift it onto the conveyer belt I am a 74 year old senior and I had great difficulty doing this and I was very annoyed as the staff member watched me struggle but did not offer to help. A kind passanger assisted me. This was even more annoying as I had to pay $25:00 + tax for my case."
Pros: "The ground crew were always nice and friendly. They worked hard to deal with delayed flight, missed connection, and tight alternate connection. Flight crew were also friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Four-hour flight delay released in one hour increments without announcement -gate displayed "on time departure" for the duration of the delay. Our hassles were compensated with meager meal vouchers given too late, There was no pre-boarding on our flight (just one big cattle call) which made boarding with child and gear extra awkward,"
