Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful, I had a nice spot on the plane, and it went very smoothly, especially considering the circumstances. I was supposed to be flying to Seattle later on, but I had to change my flight last minute because of the virus. The whole Delta team was very understanding and considerate and it made the process much less stressful."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and rescheduled for a later time the day before and there was a lot of changing of gates and running around, but I understand that everything has been hectic and I don’t blame that on you, I know you’re all doing your best."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, friendly and offered great service."
Cons: "I felt everything was pretty much fine. I thought that some of the Captain's announcements were hard to hear, but it's just a minor issue."
Pros: "Most of the crew was great with the exception of curbside check-in in Denver."
Cons: "Curbside needs to stop chasing cash tips and do their jobs. If they focused on that tips would be easy to come by. The curbside attendant that took my bag didn’t even bother to check my id. He asked me my name and asked where my destination was. I told him Cincinnati as a layover then LaGuardia where he said that was wrong. He then proceeded to print a boarding pass that wasn’t mine and load my bag into the conveyor. Not 5 mins go by when I realize what happened I wound up having to go to special services to rectify the situation. Which ultimately consisted of me waiting another hour in LaGuardia to get my bag. Please delta have these curbside handlers actually want to do their job and stop chasing cash tips."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Entertainment system malfunctioned constantly"
Cons: "Flight was late for one hour"
Pros: "nice crew and newer plane"
Pros: "Nice crew, easy process"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Wow. I have been flying American and United for years. Delta is friendly, competent, professsional and enjoyable. They treated us like friends instead of like cattle. It was great! Great job Delta. Oh, and for the first time in 50 years of flying my bags arrived sky first. Yes! They get it!"
Cons: "Perfect experience. Well done. Treat people like friends. Simple. Works."
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."

Cons: "Room to breathe, move a little"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Seats could be a couple of inches wider"
Pros: "Very smooth and friendly TSA personnel at the security point. Very friendly and respectful of the military. My husband is a Vietnam veteran."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Awful flight attendant that was rude in not passing a snack to us and then not handing a bottle of water to me when snacks were being stroked to the passengers. When asking her why she didn't provide us a snack she said that this is a plane and when the captain says we have to land that she doesn't have to pass out snacks. The interesting thing is that all the other passengers around us receive snacks and bottled water except us. When we were leaving the plane after it landed my mom had to stay behind while I went to the front of the plane a good wheelchair assistance. The same stewardess said why did your son leave you and my mother had to correct her and say that he went to the front to get wheelchair assistance. The lady was very rude and didn't know proper manners."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, pilots informative, and a very smooth and on time departure and arrival!"
Cons: "Sitting in the last row where my seat didn’t recline and it was loud and no window. It was claustrophobic!"
Pros: "clean plane, crew was very friendly."
Cons: "no dessert in meal"
Cons: "The schedule was not good and I was needed to take later flight than I ordered."
Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."
Pros: "Arrived early. Got a beverage & snack which is becoming rarer with American carriers. Video selection was very good. Staff was nice and attentive. Overall a good flight at a reasonable price."
Cons: "Narrow corridor to seats"
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."
Pros: "Everything was very standard, good crew, good gate agents, smooth flight."
Cons: "I purchase tickets using credit card points and was not allowed to have seat assignments until 24 hours before the flight. This is NOT going to work for me in the future"
Cons: "The boarding process is quite confusing with all the different categories of people prior to the actual listed "zone" boarding. As an example, if you have a "Zone 2" boarding pass, you think you will be second to board when in reality that means you are second to last to board. After those who need extra time, those with small children, active military, premier, whatever.... all that covers about 2/3 of the passengers. Then of course there's all the stepping over those who already boarded which seems to slow the process overall. It would be better to ask these questions when making your reservation. Then, the zones would be appropriate based on how you made your reservation to begin with."
Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Pros: "Easy boarding, Love to the sad that you were not nickeled and dimed while in flight they provided wonderful food and snacks. The crew so friendly and very hard working constantly there to please the passengers also having Free movies made the 5 and a 1/2 hour flight go very quickly. I fly across country frequently I will always fly Delta."
Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."
Cons: "Haven't left yet!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Cons: "4+ total hour delay"
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"

Pros: "Free lunch and free entertainment, who could ask for anything more."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Great service and gate facilities were the best anywhere"
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Pros: "everthing went well"
Cons: "No free meals."
Cons: "The connecting flight kept getting progressively later as we waited in the airport. We arrived home at midnight, 2.5 hours later than expected."
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Pros: "Attentive crew very appreciated!"
Cons: "I loved the seating on that plane with a 2x4x2 row."
Cons: "Almost 4 hour delay."
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."
Pros: "The plane didn’t crash"
Cons: "The air smelled like a dirty diaper, seats are over priced for the very little improvement over basic economy"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "I paid extra to pick seats for my fiance and I and when we arrived at the gate, they had changed my seat without any advance notification"
Cons: "We are stranded in Miami due to another passengers medical needs. That delay caused us to miss our Connecting flight. We are now unable to get to Belize until Friday and the best they will offer is a coupon for like $30 off a crappy hotel. Next time I’ll lsy more for delta’s far superior service"
Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and personable. Boarding and seating went smoothly. The flights all departed and landed on time. The cookies were tasty."
Cons: "The seats are pretty small, not much leg or elbow room. The coffee could have tasted better."
Pros: "Seat to tight"
Cons: "Better pricing"
Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"
Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "Great entertainment and crew."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Sure, I could’ve paid extra to have more legroom, but the flight was already expensive enough. Please spread the seats back out a bit and charge us all the same price."
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time. Besides that. Not much."
Cons: "Having to us use our cell phones to watch a few channels was terrible. No movie. No help. You were just left on your own. Total of waste of time. Give us a monitor. Give us options. You are American Airlines, not Allegiant Air"
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."
Pros: "Speedy check in and security check in. Seats in plane comfortable. Staff wonderful"
Cons: "The flight attendant dint even offer me water and just passed by me."
Pros: "Dinner and breakfast very good."
Cons: "Seating was random. I was place between 2 single travelers meanwhile other rows had only one person in them. Eventually I changed seats. But I should have been able to pick seats at check-in or been more spread out."
Cons: "Our departure flight was cancelled several times and we were not given an explanation. Poor communication and customer service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for whatever reason. Did not give us a reason why. Also boarding was very haphazard. They just boarded all groups at once to try to make up some time. Almost did not make it to our connecting flight in time"
Pros: "Turkey sandwich snd boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "There was no entertainment and since there is no WiFi for most of the flight due to being over water the flight seemed longer than what it actually was."
Pros: "I appreciated the quality of our seats and amenities as well as the choices for TV."
Cons: "I was unable to enjoy any of this; however, because a 6 year old talked loudly to himself the entire overnight flight while kicking the back of my seat. The crew and his parents said nothing. My boyfriend and I then had to spend our first day in Paris sleeping."
Cons: "There was a lot of announcements on the very early flight trying to get people to signup for a credit card...too early for all those unimportant announcements :("
Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived early. Great crew. A321 is a nice aircraft. Good legroom."
Cons: "Diverted and delayed. Got home 8 hours later then I should have."
Pros: "on time, quiet trip, lots of entertainment to chose from. if you like to eat and get alot of beverages you'll love this flight"
Cons: "had to do pre-clearance security screening before getting to the states and no notice given. This takes twice as long and if you don't get to the gate by a certain time you don't get to your flight. Thankfully we were at the airport 2.5 hours early and it saved us!!"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Would you like a beverage? Not unless you asked and that was only if you could get her attention. Truly felt like a second class citizen in this fight"
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "They lost a bag and then took nearly an hour to do the lost luggage report. Handoffs among three staffers (one disappeared)."
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."
Pros: "Adequately handled the 13 hr delay."
Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hrs for mechanical problems. Seems to be an ongoing problem w/ American Airlines now."
Pros: "Boarding went well / flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "Food - meh even for airline food Entertainment - shared tv with no sound and no ear phones and it was an international flight?! We went back in time 20 +yrs"
Cons: "Older American Airlines plane had the old monitors showing cabin the same movies. Difficult to see and hurt my neck. You don't expect this on overseas flights."
Pros: "Flt time!"
Cons: "Boarding announcer was rude"
Pros: "They finally got us there."
Cons: "The airplane broke on the ramp and they made is sit in the airplane while the tempeture rose to about 100 degrees. I think someone was about to pass out before they realized they had to get us off. Then we were over 4 hours late departing while they were getting another plane"
Cons: "The cabin crew for first class spent more time talking with each other and a pilot that was on our flight than with those flying. When they started passing out snacks they forgot the plates that had the napkins and utensils and were supposed to hold the snacks."
Pros: "Entertainment: individual tv screens, free current movies, flight tracking, music, etc."
Cons: "Not all food items were available when they got to us. The food was not that good. After landing we sat idle for about 15 minutes because another plane was at our gate..this resulted in us almost missing our connecting flight."
Cons: "Old Equipment"
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was on schedule luggage taken as I boarded and help available as needed. This is very important for an 80 year old. Thanks for a great trip. Sue"

Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wished the airline would have checked my bag rather then leave it at the gateway Time was wasted if you had a connecting flight"
Cons: "Cramped, claustrophobic space. Cabin too warm."
Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."
Pros: "I liked the staff on the flight. The flight had some nice"

Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a disorganized and took over an hour. There was a mix of people getting their passports checked and boarding. They never called for general boarding, just eventually started accepting people who got impatient. The entertainment options were the worst I've seen on an international flight in a while."
Cons: "I had my checked baggage held up in Calgary for one day. Then on the way back it was held up again in Calgary. This time it took 6 days,and no one could tell me where it was. It will be my first and last Air Canada flight."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "Eventually they got us there."
Cons: "They cancelled the sat flite. Little communication . Left us after 6 hours and 11 pm to fend for our selves with no luggage. No compensation. It was awful."
Pros: "A fine flight, considering how small the plane was."
Cons: "Boring food. Better than none at all, I suppose. I had the vegan option. Perhaps they are trying to discourage vegetarians from eating on the plane at all? It took half an hour on the phone to even arrange it."
Cons: "Engine noise unbearably loud French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Pros: "Crew helpful friendly."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Kept switching gates ~~frustrating."
Pros: "I didn't eat, so I really don't know about the food. However the flight attendants were very efficient and if you were wanting anything they were available early and all flight. We flew economy and I was impressed with the seat room, was a large plane though."
Cons: "The plane was very very hot."
Cons: "Flight and hospitality"
Pros: "Safe landing. Rescheduled and was only 1.5h behind"
Cons: "Our 6:30am flight was cancelled without any notice, no phone call, no email to tell us. Took over an hour to get through on the phone to see if we could reschedule to the next available flight"
Pros: "This was my third air canada rouge flight so I knew what to expect. Staff are always super courteous and good food options available."
Cons: "Almost 0 arm/leg room, flight was delayed and they tried bumping me off my flight onto another because they had overbooked."
Pros: "Flight crew including cockpit were kind, courteous, professional, appreciative and much appreciated."
Cons: "Ground crew - grouchy, uncooperative and down right unprofessional!!"
Pros: "Premium economy seats were very spacious and comfortable and clean. Couldn't rate the food, because I did not eat, but I appreciated the water service as the pitcher and cups were brought by 2-3 times."
Cons: "No complaints. All fine."
Pros: "Efficient flight got us there on time."
Cons: "Food was expensive."
Cons: "LGA Gate #6 and #7 to cold, people were freezing. Also, those two gates are like cattle barn."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and friendly,"
Cons: "They changed our gate 3 times, and delayed our flight an hour and a half. It was extremely irritating and time consuming."
Pros: "I lucked out and got an isle seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed confused and very unorganised when serving. Very slow."
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Pros: "Wifi was a bonus (not free, but was good to have, and worked well). Staff was friendly."
Pros: "Very smooth landing in Calgary. Almost an hour late leaving Toronto after a problem with pushing back from the gate. The pilot made up for most of the time lost."
Cons: "Didn't try the food so can't comment on it."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."
Pros: "Food has to be paid for on board- and the quality is not that great. Friendly staff willing to please"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost an hour from Calgary to Toronto (technical - computer issue). On the return flight from Toronto, the flight was also delayed (seat issue)."
Cons: "The boarding crew did a poor job of giving direction. In spite of the fact that boarding by zone was not specified, I was reprimanded by staff for boarding when I did. I found it very disrespectful that the staff reprimanded me for their own error. When I pointed out that they had not called a zone the ground staff lied and said they had called the zone. I strongly recommend staff receive remedial customer service training. This was an incredibly negative experience - not to mention undermined the otherwise decent experience that the Air Canada flight team provided."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Cons: "Offering "pasta" as a food choice isn't good. You might as well offer "potatoes" or "rice." Tell us what is in the pasta, what kind of sauce it is etc. Not enough details!"
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride"
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer. Did provide a $10 meal voucher. Good to know Air Canada values my total trip delay time at $2/hr"
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Cons: "Should offer meal included for a 5 hour flight which such an early check in that most of the airport restaurant were closed"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and very attentative. There weren't many options on the menu to eat, but the item I had was delicious. (Roast beef and pickle on rye bread) I like that you have the touch screen entertainment options. Passes time on plane, and I get to watch a movie I haven't watched. Great feature."
Cons: "This one might be on the airport, but my ticket said you were at gate D34, and it ended up being on D36. There were many people confused, so I know I was t the only one. The person next to me was oversized, anyway to make the seats a bit bigger?"
Pros: "good take off, land off"
Cons: "charge for checked baggage"
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."
Pros: "Loaded quickly,"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable for a long flight. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The food was good considering the air fare. The entertainment was great compared to other airlines that flight alternative routes to the same location. Compared to my other experiences with international flights this is one of the best ones overall."
Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"
Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."
Pros: "Boarding and loading of the plane was fine until the generator didn't want to start."
Cons: "generator broken, waited/delayed IN plane 1.5hr+, no snacks or gift certificate given. Entertainment system kept restarting as a result."
Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"
Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"
Pros: "Generally, Air Canada is my preferred airline. Flights were smooth ."
Cons: "Not enough time for transfer in Calgary so very stressful in USA customs and security. Baggage did not make the connection and I am still without 38 hours later."
Pros: "All aspects of the actual flight were good. The flight attendants were pleasant and professional and the food choices were good."
Cons: "The flight we had booked was cancelled. Were were rebooked on a different flight - the time was good as it got us home when we were supposed to arrive. The changed flight involved an additional transfer, which was stressful because of tight timeline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "this was the first leg to Phx. Offering a seat sale, then cancelling the flight, and arbitrarily rerouting us on a milk run! After calls to AC was able to make more acceptable arrangements, with their code share United. Then United did cancelled our flight the night before and rerouted us. Bottom line, we choose AC because of the seat sale and overall time of our travel. I will likely avoid using AC in the future even if I have to pay more!"
Pros: "Boarding was awesome, arrival was awesome. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, ie TV, as I did not have an iphone to download their app. We were offered a drink, no snack."
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Pros: "Airplanes, entertainment, boarding, check in"
Cons: "Food, conections"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Cons: "We didn’t have food on our flight, but ordered it at a cost. We didn’t get the food or pay for it."
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Pros: "My economy plus seat was good (once I finally got it) and for all the hassle they did free tv for the whole plane. THey found a new plane FAST!"
Cons: "They changed gates last minute - plane was in for maintenance and slight delay - then cancelled that plane - did the series of 15 minute additional delays. They found a new plane - changed the gates (big distance) again - and 'the computer' had reseated 1/2 the plane. DISTASTER to fix."
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "Selection of films and TV"
Cons: "Late boarding, but no apology. Drinks service, but no snacks"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Movie kept crashing and I had to restart the app"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "Pushed out on time and made it home early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were non existent. 2 water services in a 4 hour flight is ridiculous."
Cons: "The United Boarding Agent repeatedly warned about the "SMALL" carry on compartments on the CJR aircraft and literally insisted we tag our carry ons to be set aside on boarding even though we knew they fitted OK. AS A RESULT when we got to Calgary we had to wait at the over size luggage racks for our carry ons to be delivered instead of them being set up for us as we left the aircraft which is normal!! Very frustrating!!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight Attendant was REALLY late. We had to delay boarding to wait for her. 15 minutes. then it took longer to wait for gate check -- green tag bag - than if I had checked the bag. when we finally got the gate check bags and headed through customs the checked bags were all on the carousel. And I have Nexus. So Customs was 3 minutes. NOT a good process. Figure it out YYC international terminal!!!"
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "We arrived safely along with our baggage."
Cons: "Major weather issues so delayed boarding and flight. That's understandable, but poor, often rude, gate operations. Often no, inaccurate, or misleading information. They seemed confused, as if this were the first time event."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "The flight is on time."
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Cons: "I wouldn't know since I wasn't on it and I'm still in the airport waiting for my flight. I have to try to get comfortable on the floor right now."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a name discrepancy on a passenger. Not fair to keep everyone waiting for one person"
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late."
Pros: "crew personable"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Pros: "Free movies! That's how it should be!"
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Cons: "I was told I had a confirmed seat after a cancelled flight and showed up the next day to find out it was given to someone else. No help was giving took us three hours to finally get help"
