Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"

Cons: "Better movies"
Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing"
Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was very kind and entertainment was good when available"
Cons: "WiFi in all flights"
Cons: "The ticketing counter gave very bad guidance for when I arrived, thus refusing to allow me to check my bag. And insisting that I had to cancel my skymiles ticket and purchasing a new ticket. Show up at least 2 hours before at DCA for intl flights, employee incompetence could cost you $$$$"
Cons: "Virgin Atlantic has had better days. Living off of a long gone reputation. Great staff but old and worn out planes. Code sharing has done them no favors!"
Pros: "The flight"

Pros: "Meal was provided at no additional charge. Pilots were informative on weather conditions. Good crew service."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding, the sign wasn’t updated after Zone 1. I was watching the board from a distance while on the phone, waiting for Zone 4 to come up. Fortunately, I heard them say “final boarding” over the intercom; otherwise I could have missed my flight."
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"
Cons: "The new plane has NO leg room at all. It’s the worst leg room i’ve Experienced for such a large plane. I’m 6’1” and my knees would only fit if I spread my legs wide and sit back deep into the chair."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "We boarded late, then sat in a hot plane for an ester 30-40 mins because the route got cancelled. They wouldn’t serve us beverages while it was so hot inside. We landed over 49 mins later into Lax"

Cons: "The food and snack choices are quite limited."
Pros: "Customer services"
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."
Cons: "Delta could do a little more to align people behind the right zone pillars when lining up for boarding. Passengers especially those not used to flying or flying with Delta are always confused. Maybe some stripping on the floor could help or pillars at the front and midway back."
Pros: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Good experience overall. Pleasant staff. Movie features were wonderful and helped pass the time."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Excellent behavior of pilot and crew Very good take off landing On time schedule Recommendation: Better to avoid charges on check in luggage
Very smooth take off and landing Excellent behavior of crew and pilots
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "I could not get was the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Bubbly flight personnel. Helpful front desk staff."
Cons: "Keep on going"
Cons: "The crew could have checked us in...we were 5 minutes late and had to book and pay for new tickets."
Cons: "Better information upfront about immigration in Canada and not a million unnecessary information. Highly unprofessional. Had lot better experience with other websites"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "So many delays which missed our connection. Very costly. It’s the next day and I’m still not to Montreal!"
Cons: "Was delayed by 1.5 hrs and only received 1 alert about the initial 30 mins delay."
Pros: "Amy was outstanding, she provided excellent service."
Cons: "I wasn’t notified that the basic fare didn’t include carry-on baggage. It was disappointing having to pay for checked baggage without notification."
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. This is half of what I paid for the ticket originally, completely unacceptable. I will never buy again on Kayak's website if I get sneaky, last minute fees like this."
Pros: "Smooth flying. welcoming crew."
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: "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 +++"
Cons: "No pude tomar mi vuelo, lo perdí por que nunca me llegó el código de confirmación de ETA de Canadá, ¿puedo reagendar mi vuelo para una próxima fecha?"
Cons: "Stay in the airplane for a long time after landing!"
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"
Pros: "Good leg space, complimentary snacks soft drinks wine and beer."
Cons: "Service. Probably the only airline in North America to provide free alcohol on enconomy class."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours and we only received an $8 food voucher. On my flight back to my original destination, the flight was overbooked and some has to volunteer to wait 9 hours for the next available"
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."
Pros: "Porter Airlines did a great job overall."
Pros: "Porter fundamentally remade flying into downtown Toronto. Reasonably priced, with free drinks and above average snacks, their planes have no entertainment systems. Given that their flights are all relatively short, that last point is no problem."
Cons: "Boarding was slightly rush to your seats at IAD. Headphone removal seems unneeded."
Pros: "I flew many airlines in my life and Porter is one if the most human and attentive airline I experienced. Hopefully, will not grow to a greedy and bureaucratic corporations :)"
Cons: "Best crew flight attendant I have had in years on any airline"
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: "Porter Airline was amazing!! They use glasses instead of plastic cups! Nice, cheap, on time, and free wine!"
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: "Kind flight attendants, everything went very smoothly"
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."
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: "Absolutely nothing, great price and service!"
Pros: "On the whole the experience was good ."
Cons: "Took Too long at the check in counter."
Pros: "All of their flights are late, so you won't miss a connecting flight."
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: "Not tons."
Cons: "Very late."
Pros: "The convenience of flying to downtown Toronto is unbeatable. Plus, it was very easy to board and un-board such a small, cozy plane. I appreciated the generous carry-on policy and the affordable price."
Cons: "I wish there were AC outlets to charge devices. My biggest complaint however is that pens were not provided to fill out the Canadian customs declarations forms passed out on the flight, forcing passengers to find people to borrow pens from. An introvert's nightmare."
Pros: "That it was an hour flight and was late for more than hour."
Pros: "Flights delayed and no proper update provided."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival, no surprises."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Snacks on the plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Plane small and a little cramped. Overhead bin small, not enough space to place carry-on. Plane did not feel clean. Inside interior seemed old."
Pros: "Both the flights Landing Takeoffs were soo perfect,did not feel it took off and landing at the short runways were soo perfect. The crew meaning the air hostesses were soo hospitable with their great smiles on their faces to greet us, help us (especially me)being a handicapped.while serving don't know how to write how they took care, especially getting me to the wheel chair and the staff who took me in wheel chair to the next flight sevices were all 5 star and plus. I would for sure ravel with PORTOR AIRLINES if they go to the destinations I am going. Oh forgot the hospitality at the Toronto Airport was un believeable. Thanks to everyone even the owners of Portor Airlines."
Everything was super quick. Had my bags and left the airport within 20 mins of landing.
In flight entertainment and an actual meal
3 hour delay. Wasn’t notified before arriving at the airport. Mass boarding not by zones.
Small plane. Premium seats not premium
Cons: "There was absolutely nothing "first class" about this flight. Cramped seats, baggage fees, terrible boarding procedures... I've experienced better service on economy flights. Never again with Delta/Westjet."
Pros: "excellent crew - seat is fine."
Cons: "screen monitor per seat."
Cons: "Overall it was good"
Cons: "The baggage restriction was not good at least one Checking should be allowed"
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Pros: "I did not make it on the flight as the time was given was 5:35 and the flight left at 4:00."
Cons: "I was not given correct information and being a very novice traveller did not check the information."
Cons: "We landed in Phoenix and spent over an hour on the runway, when we did finally get a gate it didn’t work. The delays caused me to miss my ground transportation."
Pros: "Lots of leg space"
Cons: "Poor communication on the reason for the delay"
Pros: "for that price I'll fly west jet every time"
Cons: "some water or something was falling from the ceiling on my brother in the window seat on take off at the back of the plane was pretty gross"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "So far so good"
Pros: "The WestJet staff took great care of my dad right from when we entered the airport in Calgary to when he landed in Phoenix. They made sure he was comfortable and that his experience was stress free."
Cons: "No control over this but they waited on the tarmac for 30 minutes before taking off. They made up the time in the air. I'm sure that de-icing the plane was the reason for part of the delay. Safety first."
Pros: "organic bars, hot green tea in real mug, friendly staff"
Cons: "no entertainment or WiFi and seats did not recline."
Pros: "left on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are worn out"
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "On time flight, great staff. Within Canada I will only fly Westjet."
Cons: "I assume the in flight entertainment was lame. Who uses that? Just give us a basic (no streaming) WiFi connection."
Cons: "Five hour flight delay due to a flight attendant not showing up on time, not taken care of in any way"
Pros: "seated in plus, more legroom"
Cons: "30 minute delay boarding/ arrival"
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."

Pros: "staff very pleasent"
Cons: "delays cancelled flights"
Pros: "Smiling faces and humor from the crews."
Pros: "WestJet does a good job of making you feel welcome. Boarding in Mexico City was a bit chaotic"
Cons: "My wife and I had specifically booked the flight to return home to Victoria in one day without a stopover in USA. Whilst in Mexico we were informed of a change in flight plan obligating is to briefly overnight in Calgary at significant experience and discomfort thus completely negating the choice of booking this particular flight"
Pros: "flight was on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "i think it is terrible that one must pay for their baggage, and this will give me a reason to seek an alternative carrier during my next trip"
Pros: "Great service all around."
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "We were not sitting together...we are both seniors and my husband has only flown 2 before....our seats were booked together and I am assuming due to our flight cancelled on Jan 8 and rescheduled on the 9th that could be why. No room to stretch your legs, for those of us who have circulation problems...."
Pros: "Fast friendly service. Aircraft was clean and in great condition."
Cons: "No entertainment, not even power for your own electronics."
Pros: "This trip was not full. So I had 3 sits to my self"
Cons: "It was a good fight"

Cons: "Losing my luggage"
Pros: "After long security line ups . It is so refreshing to board on time with no fuss or delay .staff efficient , up beat and on task ."
Cons: "No comments necessary at this time"
Pros: "The flight was ok and the customer service overall good."
Cons: "A bit disappointing that the flight didn’t even have monitors to watch movies , you got to use your own tablets or cell phones. I prefer to save batteries on my devices when I’m travelling :)"
Pros: "Two snacks, even if the snacks were a little on the small side;"
Cons: "A little cramped; small TV screens; the attendants ran out of hot water"
Pros: "Complimentary wine - friendly staff"
Cons: "Late departure- disorganized boarding"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Always delayed, this time because an international flight arrived when we were supposed to board, frustrating"
Pros: "Great flight. Westjet got me home earlier than the arrival time."
Cons: "Everyrhing was great"
Pros: "WestJet staff and crew fantastic"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful but no refreshments because of turbulence. Flight was low so very interesting to be below clouds and just above. Good notice of flight delay in time to stay home for two hours.... thanks!!"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving.m Arrival in Toronto was so far from exit and thru customs was very slow... new machines."
Cons: "The bag of treat I got with my coffee don't remember what it was but it had no taste. I tasted it and discarded the rest."
Pros: "Please continue this route, we love belize. Only airline flying direct."
Pros: "Good crew, timely flight and pleasant experience overall"
Cons: "Was in an exit row so plenty of legroom, seat could have used more padding though"
Pros: "Each seat has an electric plug with a USB port. The plug itself seems to work with an international electric adapter but the USB port came in handy."
Cons: "I flew plus class and was charged for my luggage and can not get thru to westjet for a refund."
Flight was delayed because pilots were late. If crew rest is required, then simply change the time of the flight to allow sufficient time for crew rest. A deliberate delay, communicated, would allow the passengers more time as well. Air Canada is either the worst airline or in a serious funk. My last five trips with AC have resulted in lost bags, damaged bags, or delayed fights. Terrible, terrible organization at the moment.
On time, good service. Food was not as described, entertainment choices were old, limited.
Cons: "I missed my flight that day i was not happy at all"
Cons: "Plane was many hours late. Departure time not on terminal screen. Extreeeme delay on shuttle from United terminal. Sidewalk closed for construction. TSA Prechk not on boarding pass printout. No shuttle behind security from Term B to Term A. Plane left earlier than announced on notification apps. DCA website=6:25pm Final call at 5:47pm only word DELAY on term screen with 4:10time."
Pros: "On time; efficient; great aircraft."
Cons: "A child threw up in flight behind my wife and the crew let the parents clean it up. I thought the crew should have been more proactive."
Pros: "everything went by fast, a lot of turbulence but the pilot kept us in check the entire time."
Pros: "That we survived and finally got our luggage the day after we arrived."
Cons: "1) That we went to Toronto, but our luggage went to Montreal. 2) That my wife had to stay up the whole night calling everyone in their call center to find out what happened to our luggage. 3) We were charged for selecting our seats in the flight reservation process. 4) We were misdirected by an Air Canada rep for our return flight and this caused us to miss our connecting flight as well. 5) We ended up spending more than 12 hours at the airport for flying from Toronto to Washington DC."
Cons: "The aircraft was so small there was not enough room for even most standard size carry-ons. The crew were not patient and gave passengers attitude for trying to bring their carry-ons onboard. On the way back from Toronto, we were sitting on the runway for more than one hour waiting for "de-icing". If this is a recurring thing, why not time the arrivals and departures better to avoid making people sit there, disconnected from everything and waiting? Also the screen on my "entertainment center" was broken but thankfully I had my own book to read. Air Canada has not had the most welcoming crew or most up to date fleet in my experience; I fly with them mostly because of their cheap fares. I guess "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch"."
Pros: "I usually have a smooth experience with Air Canada. Haven't had any problems on board. Unfortunately I had a bad experience with my baggage."
Cons: "The check-in person said my baggage (oversized, and a keyboard) would make it through to my final destination even though I had another flight on a separate reservation. I specifically asked because I wanted to know if I needed to pick it up when I landed after the first leg in Toronto. He said I'd only have to go through customs and my bag will make it all the way home to Vancouver. Well, I felt weird about it and when I got off in Toronto I noticed that my baggage receipt said Toronto on it (not Vancouver). I decided to forego the connections gate because I was unsure. Lucky that I did because lo and behold, my keyboard bag was waiting for me at baggage claim. Had I trusted the check-in guy, I would've possibly lost over $1000 worth of equipment. That's not something that can easily be forgiven."
Pros: "Crew very friendly. In-flight refreshments & Entertainment provided."
Cons: "Cramp seats."
Pros: "Affordable and timely."
Cons: "Hard seats, no room for carry-on luggage, and not even a free cracker."
Cons: "When there is a delay, even when weather related, show some empathy and feed stranded passengers!"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "The plane was nice, updated entertainment options, crew was very friendly and trilingual."
Cons: "Food was nothing to write home about, but it served its purpose."
Pros: "the crew are super friendly. even on a little plane from DC-Toronto they had entertainment options which i wouldn't have expected. boarded quickly and landed on time. nobody bats an eye at my wife's weird beverage requests."
Cons: "the cabin of the plane on the return flight didn't have any air conditioning running during boarding and it was uncomfortably hot because it was about 85F outside. the crew only bothered to inform us of the issue when a poor hungover guy behind me asked about it because he was suffering... as were we all. plane didn't get comfortable until over 30 minutes in, at which point we were beginning our descent anyway."
Pros: "Ludovic was fantastic!"
Cons: "charged me for my bags; employees were surly."
Cons: "The plane was sitting at the gate for about an hour before we boarded (for a flight delayed by over an hour). Yet Air Canada didn't bother to go through the cabin and pick up garbage left in seat back pockets. The water in the washroom didn't work."
Pros: "Crew on the flight were very patient, understanding and friendly. Ground staff were the exact opposite. Agitated, temperamental and unwilling to help or find solutions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily the crews fault. But frustrating as our flight both to and from Washington was delayed both ways."
Cons: "Terrible flight. I should have driven instead. Flight was suppose to land at 12:30pm but due to computer malfunction we landed at 7pm."
Pros: "It was a good experience flying on Air Canada. The flight was on schedule, smooth flight, flight attendants were friendly."
Pros: "Love these guys. Moved a whiny baby away to a another row ;)"
Pros: "We got to destinations safely"
Cons: "I was worried that we won't make it to the land. I guess it was windy, but the plane was shaking too much"
Pros: "I loved the whole experience. The food was decent and the flight attendants were great and accommodated me with all my necessities. I also enjoyed the entertainment that was accessible on our personal screens and the entire flight was smooth."
Pros: "Nice and relaxing."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and tried to get people with large luggage to check it."
Cons: "It took forever to load as people carried on huge bags that wouldn't fit in the overhead bins or under the seats. It took an extremely long time to get through American customs, and they were very rude, not caring if people missed connecting flights. They wouldn't add workers. Some almost missed the flight. P"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "The attendants on the flight were very unprofessional - they laughed the entire time during our boarding and safety demo. They were more interested in talking to the ground crew outside then welcoming the guests on their flight."
Pros: "nothing particularly spectacular. The entertainment on the place is much better than most (since most don't have it) for such short flights."
Cons: "The place was delayed for over an hour for a 'maintenance issue' - what I dislike is lack of information being shared from the plane to people at the gate. Also when we are delayed for the airlines fault - customers should be given something - anything - a small voucher, or even a drink ect., this is not a weather issue. I think airlines have too much power making most terrible at customer service - air Canada is one of the worst ones."
Pros: "Excellent service on board, and excellent neighbor passengers"
Cons: "Being unable to check in on line and being assigned a middle seat."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Terrible service."
Pros: "Super sweet and chatty flight attendant and check in agent the second day."
Cons: "Not the airline's fault but our flight got cancelled once we were already in the take off track due to bad weather in NYC (heavy rain!!!???) Having gone through US customs and the long way of security and check in and all. We were carrying 7 big bags as we were moving into the US and handling those many bags was a nightmare, we had to do it two days in a row!!! I lost a night booked in a hotel in NYC as I didn't know if we were getting a later flight until just too late to cancel. Very confusing to get to the right place to rebook, even Air Canada employees seemed confused. Rebooking agent took ages. We had paid for preference seats and finally we got terrible last row seats in the rebooked flight. We haven't been refunded since!! Delays and more delays on the rebooked flight again."
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't as friendly or willing to accomodate"
Pros: "We got in a little early. More room than many in regular economy. All employees encountered pleasant and competent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind other than the normal air travel has led of security."
Cons: "Worst flight ever. Had a technical difficulties 3 times in a row. Had to be cancelled and put on the next day and again same thing over and over. So missed all my connections. Cut short my vacation. Will never flight air Canada again."
Pros: "I liked the newer plane and cloth seats with mild colors. The chargers were a nice accessory but sacrificed leg movability which leads us to the negatives --->"
Cons: "Wow, I know that business means remaining competitive and as such any and all cost cutting measures are taken along with profit increase measures but............... Wow, talk about being crammed in like a sardine. I'm a male of average height and usually this is a blessing because it feels as though all vehicles, amusement rides and doorways are custom made just for me with the exception of Air Canada planes. I have never in my 300+ number of flights ever felt so confined in any seat. The distance from my knee to the seat in front of me was a claustrophobic finger length at best. Getting up to use the restroom required the other passengers to get up, and I had to stand and walk across their seats to get in/out. Luckily the lady next to me was nice enough and the flight was pleasant overall, but I will certainly think twice before booking another Air Canada flight!!!"
Cons: "Not giving us an update on why the flight was delayed"
Pros: "I was extremely uncomfortable in my assigned seat. One of the flight attendants found a more comfortable spot for me and she was pleasant to talk to."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants woke me up when I was seated in my wife's business class seat. She then said "go back to your seat in economy" in a tone that was dripping with condescension."
Pros: "I liked the flight when I got off the plane because it was over"
Cons: "The whole experience was horrible, the landing, the food, the noise, the unconfortable seats, the plane was too hot and especially the bad landing...never again...it was the worst trip I have ever taken and I fly 2 times a year."
Pros: "Super polite crew"
Pros: "Food and service."
Cons: "Plane was very hot!"
Pros: "As thecflt time was short, i cannot say much but the leg room was ok."
Pros: "Everything went well including the smoothness of the flight."
Pros: "The flight was canceled very close to departure time and I was bumped to a flight leaving five hours later. Missed my train connection in Montreal and had to rent a car and drive to Quebec. Since I go to Canada only rarely, I ended up essentially losing the money I spent for train fare and having to pay another $145 for the rental car. Got to Quebec at 11:30 p.m. instead of 3:55 p.m. Not happy."
Pros: "1) Skycap service for boarding at Reagan National was exceptional. I requested wheelchair assistance for this return flight and the attendant gave 100% service, getting me through security and on to the boarding gate lounge area in short order. He was very pleasant and very helpful. 2) The pilots did a good job of flying, The flight was smooth as was the landing. We left Reagan a few minutes late but arrived at Pearson 16 minutes early. I liked that!"
Cons: "1) I paid extra money for a "preferred seat" because my recent hip replacement surgery required that I have ample leg room while sitting. Leg room for the first row econonomy seat I got was barely adequate. I felt cheated out of the $15 I paid for the seat (which should have been complimentary, in my opinion 2) Food service was terrible. For a 1 o'clock flight, having to get to the airport 2-3 hours ahead of departure, meant that I was in need of some serious food, not the tiny package of pretzels and the cup of tea I got. Even a couple of cookies or a muffin would have been a better offering. 3) The wheelchair assistance that I requested did not materialize for me on arrival at Pearson. I felt so cramped from sitting that I was eager to get up and try to walk, no matter how slowly, the distance to Customs and through to the exit gate to wait for my ride home. That's what I did, and I never saw a wheelchair attendant coming with a wheelchair as I exited. That is poor service! I am comparing this to the excellent service I got with American Airlines on the first leg of my trip from Toronto to DC."
Pros: "Easy enough getting there and timely"
Cons: "The next flight and my 5 hour delay"
Cons: "Ac canceled at last minute. Claimed we got txt and email which we did not. Only an offer to upgrade. Connecting Asian flight went without us at very substantial expense which ac denies is there resp because it was weather. Terrible desk attitude, long lines no communication to permit alternative planning."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The flight itself was good. The ground crew forgot about us in Toronto, adding extra time to an already delayed flight."
Pros: "As it has been for the past 20 years or so, the crew look fairly unhappy and act distant. The same at the check-in counter. The man next to the info/help AC desk told me that he does not have 'fragile' stickers and that the desk is for wheel-chair people - though he was doing nothing, and the woman next was helping a customer with something complicated. SHE had to turn around and ask him to look under the papers, and find me the 'fragile' stickers.... I do not like AC service for the past many years. I do have to say that the flight (technically) was good."
Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Everything could be better. From the boarding process to the on board service."
Pros: "Good flight, decent crew. Food was okay."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Cons: "we had a 9 hour delay"
Cons: "Nice exp and service"
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "The staff and crew were excellent"
Cons: "Legroom was far too tight, by at least an inch. Entertainment such as recent movies, available on other airlines for free, was available only for pay."
Pros: "boarding was fast, flight was on time, nice crew"
Cons: "pretty basic creature comforts, seats so so"
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Hostess was super loud repeated destination at least 100 times."
Cons: "Pilot was calm and understanding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants, service and comfort were very good."
Cons: "Because of plane maintenance the flight was 4 hours late. I stood in line for two hours to get my flight changed since I missed my connection in Frankfort, and never got it changed. I got to Frankfort and stood in 3 more lines to get on standby. I’m hoping to get to Naples before the last ferry to Capri in order to make my sister’s wedding."
Pros: "Quick flight, faster than schedule. Flight attendant was good."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room or arm space in the seats on US express jets. If the flight were longer than an hour it would make for an absolutely miserable experience."
Pros: "Snack menu, the plane was moderately clean compared to the last. Good communication about late flight."
Cons: "Staff was mostly rude, tired. The plane was 30 minutes late due to weather. Internet would not work, the captain kept trying to reboot it, no entertainment. An older plane in moderate disrepair. Economy seats were much more uncomfortable than American Airlines."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Cons: "We bought this on swiss air with the terms that included free skis. When we arrived at the airport, Unites airlines informed us that skis would be $200 to check. A pretty awful surprise to start our vacation. Perhaps it should be made more clear that the operating airline’s fees with predominant - not the fees we originally agreed to at purchase. United’s planes are awfully old and small."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed our flight. The least they could have done was given us a pass to the lounge to relax considering we came in on a red eye or a lunch voucher. The staff was a bit rude."
Pros: "All of it was good."
Cons: "2 short a trip to serve food"
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Pros: "It was hot...the whole flight"
Cons: "Hot hot hot"
Pros: "Pilot candor"
Cons: "In flight service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Greenville at 6:41 pm, we never arrived until after 11 am."
Cons: "- The flight out of IAD was overbooked and left late. - My hand luggage was taken from me with promise of delivery at final destination - Staff in EWR was unhelpful and just short of rude - My luggage did not make the connection at EWR - There was no United staff in PoS to take my report of lost luggage -"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, attentive and brought extra water without asking."
Cons: "I do not like the "something Asian chicken- or pasta" selection, never taste good."
Cons: "Old plane even though we upgraded to first class it was just bigger seats no entertainment cold draft just horrible felt like we were flying back in the 80s. Lastly our luggage didn't come with our flight it came with the next flight. Horrible horrible experience"
Pros: "On time flight. And the upgrade was wonderful"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The personal are very amability"
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Cons: "There was a delay after boarding / door closing. We just sat at the gate without explanation so we arrived late in Boston. I assume we were held for some reason by the tower but an update from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "The Argentinian lady that help us at the counter. She safe us from missing the flight."
Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "During sleeping somebody took the pillow and the blanket from the adjacent seat. Unfortunately with my amenity kit and the Bose headphone case. The kit was found later by the personnel, the case not. Not reccomemded to sleep during flight at this airline."
Pros: "Flight attendant was extraordinarily kind, especially for the couple sitting next to me with their adorable 7-week old baby."
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Pros: "We arrived 10 minutes early which allowed me to catch connecting ground transport"
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and United offered no reasonable options for returning home that evening."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold. Even with numerous empty seats I was assigned a seat in the last row next to the laboratory and not permitted to change. Flight attendant had a poor attitude and was generally not helpful."
Cons: "My husband, sister, brother-in-law and myself flew into STL. We thought we had booked the same flight but when we got there found out our departure flight was different. We asked about moving them to our floght but it was over booked so we asked if we could move to there flight. They had 15 open seats. They told us no. There would be a charge of 500 dollars if we wanted to change. We decided to just fly out first and meet them there. We stood by the counter to speak about meeting. As we did we could hear them telling the next couple that they would have to move to the later flight. It was a huge problem for them as they would miss there connection. We then offered again to take the later flight so they could take our place on the over booked flight and make there connection. They where unwilling. Then we get on the flight and the plane was nasty and dirty. We put out tray table down and there was drink and dirt all over it. When asked if they could be cleaned we got an attitude. They never came back to do it. Luckily I had a wet wipe to do it. The plan smelled like urine. Same was true for our return flight. The plane was very old and not taken care of. This is not the first problem is we have had with United. We will not be flying with them any longer."
