Pros: "This was the worst flying experience I have ever encountered."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac 3 hours, then deplaned to a holding area for another hour and then were told the flight would be delayed until 1 pm the next day. I booked this flight in order to arrive home 7 hours earlier than originally planned on Alaska Air. I finally arrived 20 hours LATER THAN I WOULD HAVE ARRIVED!"
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Pros: "No and no"
Cons: "The plane could have been maintained. Instead I sat for three hours and was told the mechanics didn’t have the equipment to fix the plane"
Pros: "Nothing, my flight was delayed so bad that if I would have had taken off I would have been stuck in DFW Airport until probably Friday as I would have had missed my flight and all the flights to PR were sold out until the 19th. Luckily my brother was so proactive that he was able to re-schedule a flight for the 19th."
Cons: "If the flight would have taken off on time."
Cons: "Bathroom broken. Broken plane. Stuck on runway with me bathroom and no food or drink for 2 hours before we took off."
Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom, but passenger in next seat allowed small child to run back and forth in the legroom. Nothing was done when observed by crew"
Pros: "Appreciated the pilot keeping us informed re: turbulence and avoiding it"
Pros: "Ground and flight staff terrible."
Cons: "Will not fly AA again."
Pros: "Kindness of the staff at the airport."
Cons: "Being accommodated when your flight gets delayed over 14hrs. Not living in the area and all decent hotels booked up, me and my mother were forced to try to sleep on the floor at JFK, among a mother and two young children. That was a bad experience."
Cons: "On the red eye from Anchorage to LAX in Business class the A321 was ok as far as comfort. Same duration flight fromLAX to MIA, same plane, but we received a nice pillow and blanket, as well as a little travel kit and bottle of water. Seems strange there are different standards for the same duration"
Pros: "Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "Nice crew. Newer comfy seats"
Cons: "Everything comfort communication"
Pros: "First Class Food (Dinner was short rib) was better than most flights. Pilot was very friendly and personable with his in-flight communications."
Cons: "Departure was delayed due to late arrival of aircraft; boarding gate was changed at PHX from A21 to B27 where there is no Admirals Club."
Pros: "Staff were nice and the pilot got us to Asheville faster than expected."
Cons: "Due to the short trip there weren’t on trip snacks or drinks. Not necessarily bad, but can’t give them a high rating for it if it’s not offered."
Pros: "The food was pretty good."
Cons: "They had no accommodations for our baby, and didn’t let us board first. It was an old plane with basic entertainment, TVs above the middle row and not all do them worked. It was particularly freezing on board. Some of the crew was nice but overall not very friendly or welcoming."
Pros: "Flight delayed for 12 hours. Had to reschedule both flights"
Cons: "See above. Missed work."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful, professional and friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, not in good shape; seat pocket broken, are rest controller did’t fit into arm rest properly, panel in bathroom held in place (kind of) with duct tape, no individual screen for movies."
Cons: "I was rebooked and the process between American and British Airways was very confusing. I was lucky to get a seat on the plane which I had to pay extra for even though I booked in January for an August flight. Also it was crazy that there was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Comfortable flight except for limited leg room. Great movie selection."
Cons: "Poor leg room for tall people"
Cons: "This was an updated 737 with pleather seats and a sleek look inside. But what matters most is leg room for me. There was none. I flew for 5 hours in totally cramped conditions. I loved the page in the mag about seat exercises to keep your leg circulation up. Couldn't bend my knees even. Disgusting"
Pros: "I really liked crew, fast boarding"
Cons: "Old airplane, very noisy , no tv screans on seats, boring movies on tv and horrible ear sets, could not hear anything. very dissapointed experience."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Comfortable journey. Our pilot was a woman! Go girl power!"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work. You couldn’t download the American Airlines app. The crew forgot to give me my complimentary drink. After attempting for 10 minutes, Gave up."
Pros: "Nothing, American Airlines is the worst major airline now."
Cons: "The staff in Miami Airport is really bad, worst attitude I have seen, old planes, not comfortable, definetly the worst major airline now."
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and they next flight left 5min early?! WTF! We missed the flight by 3min. 10 other people missed the flight too. Now our whole day is blown waiting nearly 6hrs for next flight."
Pros: "Good in-flight service, comfortable first class seat."
Cons: "Arrival gate was remote from main terminal, requiring a crowded and disorganized wait for a bus to the main terminal and baggage claim. The extremely small overhead storage cabinets of the Canadair required many passengers to check normally acceptably sized carry-on bags after boarding and finding it impossible to fit. Waiting time for retrieving these on the ramp at the destination was excessive."
Cons: "air conditioning did not work well. heat was coming into the plane from the windows."
Pros: "Nothing it did not exist"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight without telling me"
Cons: "The staff encouraged me to get on my first delayed flight because my second was delayed as well. But as I landed from my first flight the second flights delay was reversed and I had no notification of this change. I missed my connecting flight. Had to stay in the airport all night, had to fly into a different destination at 7 am. No explanations, no help. Terrible."
Cons: "American Airlines staff are rude and don't care about customers. Flight was late. Third consecutive American Airlines flight that was more than an hour late departing. American Airlines lost baby's car seat."
Pros: "Love the direct flights from RDU to West Coast. Wish there were more cities on the list. The flight was delayed about 45 minutes after we boarded for take off. I hate sitting on planes idling. The seats are already uncomfortable, then add more time onto that to sit. But we made up the time in the air for an on time arrival. Hmmmm?"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight at dinner time and then the 3 hour time change, the snacks provided are not enough. You just have to remember to bring food on the plane and then risk annoying your fellow passengers with the food/dinner dining space. More checks of drinks would be nice too. Cost cutting measures, but minimal considering a packed flight and pretty high ticket price."
Pros: "I loved our flight from Anchorage alaska to Los Angeles California. Flight attendants were kind and helpful. We had plenty of leg room and it was great flight. Loved our window seat."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight attendants snarky attitudes when we would ask for son."
Pros: "Fast once we were airborne"
Cons: "Delay without explanation, then sitting on tarmac for 40 minutes."
Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."
Cons: "AA delayed flight 3 hours, overbooked, took 1 hour to board the plane with all passengers, another 45 minutes to prepare a gate at the destination airport and another 45 minutes to unload checked bags. Hesitant to fly with AA again."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Finally took off at 12:15 AM on a flight scheduled to depart at 7;30 PM the day before!"
Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."
Pros: "Flight attendants made sure my family and I were comfortable"
Cons: "Small leg room space"
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "The estimated time for both my flight was over an hr, but we arrived in on my first flight at 45mins and my second flight 30mins."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the flight was smother and on time, boarding was timely"
Cons: "The plane was older with a poor entertainment system"
Pros: "Service and staff were great!"
This flight was managed professionally.
Cons: "Almost missed my conection. Never on time."
Pros: "there was high wind warnings and we had so much turbulence even a few seconds before the landing but the flight crew landed us safely regardless. hats off to them!"
Cons: "The Sandiego flight has a delayed 1.5 hr I lost all my connections I pay insurance I what my money back I lost my meatting and now I’m flying back again"
Cons: "Lack of communication. Crew was unattentitive and seemed to not know protocol or appear to have things under the control."
Pros: "I appreciate the upgrade to the first class."
Cons: "Taking a bus for boarding"
Cons: "Time is money. Instead of telling customers to arrive 3 hours before departure and it is their problems if they can make it, a better way to be helpful is to have representatives ready to spend 3 minutes to look at customers' status, offer feasible options and point people to the right directions right away. Be a part of the solution! Don't be such a pain when you can offer a helping hand."
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. No screen for inflight entertainment Big gap between seat and window prevented resting head for sleep."
Cons: "No room. Cramped, impossible to sleep on an overseas flight"
Pros: "I had wheel chair service for transit"
Cons: "Layover time was not enough. I got 1 hour or so for transit. Ridiculous short"
Cons: "My flight from NYC to Montreal was delayed 4 hours due to a storm that had passed earlier in the day. That was understandable, however we then sat on the tarmac at the gate for an additional hour because Air Canada's entire computer system suddenly crashed. We finally got to the runway and in the middle of takeoff the pilot slammed on the brakes and aborted the takeoff because he did not reach high enough speed. It was very scary. I was supposed to land in Montreal at 10:20 pm but arrived there at 2:30 am the next morning."
Cons: "Still waiting to try to get on a flight via the standby option, and even that flight keeps getting delayed and the gate was changed. The whole trip has been a clusterf***."
Cons: "Flight was delayed both lengths. We have been offered one cup of water and no other drinks on 8 hours flight from Toronto to Budapest! There were no flight attendants asking us if we need anything. We had to wait 1 hour and 20 minutes at Budapest airport for our luggage."
Cons: "I am glad I survived this experience. It was worse than PanAm flights in the 1980s... no TV, basic care ... except PanAm served better food. I was really sorry for the flight crew that they have to serve on this plane."
Cons: "Took forever to board"
Pros: "Wonderful staff and service! I was very comfortable on the larger airplane so I didn't feel anxious. Excellent ratings on everything for Air Canada!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "I didn't like anything. This was a major disappointment."
Cons: "It was delayed 2 hours. Also, they announced at the airport that there were no monitors on the plane and we should download the Air Canada Rouge app. The connection at the airport was poor so I couldn't download the app but my friend did but she still couldn't watch anything on the airplane even though we were told we could get the app and get the on plane entertainment. I just couldn't believe that in 2017 there are allowed airplanes in such poor condition in the air. Also, I was traveling with 2 children and the airline didn't accommodate me at all. Many seats were empty and they put me in a full row. I had to sit on the floor for 8 hours so my children could stretch and sleep and the fly attendant didn't even bother to ask how I was doing but they would frequently bumped into my children's feet in the aisle. Also, a passenger's seat behind me fell apart. I could write an essay about this airline. Never again!"
Cons: "They sold my mom's tix. Didn't let her board. She had to buy new ticket!!! For 1200!!! Terrible experience"
Pros: "nice lie flat beds."
Cons: "it was all good."
Cons: "First flight to LA flight was delayed 7 hours from Calgary to LA on the way back flight was delayed again but from 1 hour what made missed my flight from Calgary to Edmonton when we finily landed in Edmonton my luggage was lost worse flight ever"
Cons: "Booked 2+ months in advance and didn't get a flight on Easter weekend"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were narrow and sitting in aisle seat you were constantly hit every time cabin crew took trolley up / down aisle. Woke up by cabin crew banging into me."
Pros: "Flight crews were great."
Cons: "Ground crews and Air Canada's booking system caused no end of trouble. Weather started the problem but human error meant an incredibly stressful rebooking, requiring three agents at ticketing plus the IT help desk just to figure out what the agent I had reached over the phone had done. In Quebec City not nearly enough agents to check bags; huge lines, people being shunted to the front so they wouldn't miss their flights."
Pros: "Decent seats, crew was nice"
Cons: "Delays. Both on my outgoing and return trips. Air Canada was also extremely unorganized at Laguardia."
Pros: "Constant ability to have water, decent selection of beverages. Food wasn't spectacular but was adequate."
Cons: "As a non Canadian I found the entertainment selection to be lacking. The movies and games were good however I have never heard of any of the musical artists and I found the tv selections lacking. Why only 2-3 episodes per show? The middle seat in economy had armrests narrower than my shoulders making it painful on my elbows"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and seemed willing to help."
Cons: "The cabin was very cold during the 12+ hour flight, and the food was not very good."
Pros: "One of our meals was outstanding."
Cons: "One of our meals was horrible. It was a snack but could have been better. Also, after a great meal, attendants never collected garbage until a pax starting doing so & was told to stop. It was a good 2 hours after being served!"
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "I had a window seat and there really wasn't a lot of leg room because of how the body of the plane curves. Food was ok. Not a lot of elbow room to eat."
Cons: "The overall service was poor. One male flight attendant was very rude and disrespectful to two elderly passengers. It was NOT David. Charging $10 for entertainment was is terrible!!! Restrooms were filthy!!!"
Pros: "The crew were attentive"
Cons: "This is an old plan that desperately needs upgrading: it's visibly worn down, the seats are old and uncomfortable, bathrooms were gross, etc. I was also surprised to have to pay for food on a nearly 6 hour, international flight. But even with that said if you're going to make people pay have a decent menu and make sure you have everything available that's on the menu. Amazing how different this flight was from our Munich to Toronto flight."
Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "I'm tired of all your flights being late. Out of my last 4 flights, 3 were late. If you have to land at a domestic terminal and then come around to international-just change your flight time so people actually know when they will be later. Your movies and music are from another planet - is that because you have to include French? Not even a measley bag of peanuts. I will be flying on another airline whenever possible"
Pros: "The take-off and landing were smooth, the airline and passengers were very classy and the flight attendants spoke both perfect English and French. Overall I enjoyed it very much. I flew home on West Jet and did not care for that one bit. Thank you Christine Tekela"
Pros: "The 767 can be a nice plane when you don't try to cram almost 300 outdated seats onto it."
Cons: "Purchasing airline tickets is about the only thing I know of where the customer is not told what he is buying. This plane had no entertainment system and the bare minimum in legroom. I expect better from Air Canada. I will not book a long flight on Rouge - or Air Canada again. I am sick of the constant disappointment."
Cons: "I cannot believe the nickel and dining of this company. I was on a 3 hour international flight (just USA to Canada, but still), and they served no snacks. Not even a bag of pretzels! Forget about free alcoholic beverages you normally get on international flights."
Cons: "Small spaces for legs, dinner taste... No tv screen in the seata back"
Cons: "All three Air Canada flights that I had to take on this itinerary were late including the 2nd one which was six hours late. Air Canada personnel on this 2nd flight did not do a good job of communicating information to the customers during the delay. Air Canada booked be on a 3rd night that lead me to only get 3 hours sleep in a hotel. AC does not work with the customers when booking flights. they just make changes after the previous flight has left the ground."
Cons: "Check in process was slow and messy. Check in clerk I felt with was borderline rude. May want to consider a check in kiosk to speed things up. I stood in line for almost 40 minutes waiting to check in before I pulled out my phone and checked in online at that point I was only half way through the line. If the flight hadn't been delayed I might have missed it. Additionally once boarded the cabin door was closed the second the last person entered the plane. An announcement was made that we couldn't leave till everyone was in their seats. But enough time had not been given to the passengers to even get down the aisle before such a snippy comment about needing everybody seated was made."
Cons: "Couldn't watch movies unless on iPhone"
Cons: "The system from the beginning was so unorganised ...went 2 hrs earlier even after online check in and it said u need to be there just an hour ..still had to run till the end.. Seat was so uncomfortable ..to add to the agony my luggage didn't arrive and had to wait till evening"
Pros: "Clean plane, attentive efficient staff, easy boarding."
Cons: "Flight staff forgot to pass out customs forms upon landing in Toronto - caused some confusion at customs entry."
Cons: "No cookies or pretzels."
Pros: "Efficient flight got us there on time."
Cons: "Food was expensive."
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Pros: "This was a standard flight..."
Cons: "I was surprised to see that there were no usb chargers, personal video screens or cabin-wide movies on the trans Atlantic portion of the flight."
Cons: "Never made it because of long delay of connection flight. Toronto airport is extremely poorly organized. Huge lines everywhere. Air Canada staff had no idea how to help. Rebooking very slow because 4 out of 5 staff was out for dinner. Air Canada overall: Awful service. Disorganized. Staff lack information."
Pros: "Direct flight from Toronto to Budapest was awesome"
Cons: "There was no air vent, poor movie entertainment selection and no free alcohol for transatlantic flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats in bulkhead, large overhead cabin space, friendly staff, lots of water offered"
Cons: "No extra blankets available. Would have preferred more Asian cuisine on HK/Toronto flight. Staff too busy with full economy cabin, so not responsive when pressed call button. Movie and TV selection not as extensive as Cathay, though kids same games much better."
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
