Great

Everything was excellence and good

Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Cons: "Qatar airways didn’t let me board the plane despite of all the requirements. Never flying again with them"
Cons: "The crew at check in was really inconsiderate and has given us false information! Despite of what documents were required and submitted I was not allowed to board the plane."

Pros: "Flight was on time, baggage was quick, got out of airport and on my way."

Cons: "Lights did not work, so diner was guessing whats was in the tray"
Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "After hearing our complaint, the Transfer desk staff was friendly and helpful and solved the situation in our favour. We"
Cons: "Once we landed in Doha to board omthe connecting flight, ground staff was waiting right outside the hate to let us know that our flight was overbooked.

What a way to start our holidays."

Cons: "You have to improve the food service. The food tasted horrible. You have to circulate the beverage cart more often."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens.

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tried their best to accommodate"

Pros: "Crew was good overall"
Cons: "Food was overheated and bland in taste. No on board entertainement"
Pros: "It was long flight but everything was just right. Will use this company again."
Cons: "Went First Class. What a joke! Coach seats & service. Only difference is they leave the middle seat empty. This appears to be the European standard (we flew on 3 different airlines) for 1st Class within Europe flights. Save your money, fly coach within Europe."
Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "The engagement of the crew. The coffee and cake. The attendant offered to help me with my bag to the door of the aircraft. The same attendant remembered to give me coffee later and provided the stir stick just as I was able ask for one. I felt cared for."
Cons: "They ran out of the protein meal selections.e.g. Chicken I think. Pasta with sauce and one small cube of cheese with a little salad does not qualify as a balanced mealThe attendant tried to make up for it by giving me more cheese blocks."
Pros: "The crew was really good. The food was much better than my cross the Atlantic flight. There wasn’t any entertainment so I am not sure how to rate it."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is not very good. Why does a passenger who has cleared security in the US have to do it again in Frankfurt? It is an unnecessary requirement that causes some passengers to miss their connecting flight. I will give them a pass on clearing immigration But going thru security....no."
Pros: "Love the entertainment and meals"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"
Pros: "Great business class seats. Plenty of room and comfortable."
Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."

Cons: "Still in Munich."
Pros: "They even filled my water bottle a couple of times in addition to numerous glasses at my seat."
Pros: "I managed to get a seat in economy class upstairs on the Airbus A380-800, next to the window. Each window seat has a locker to stow all your in-flight stuff in and there is lots of legroom. I was impressed - that's saying a lot for a Boeing-lover. Crew was very attentive and always available."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better organized."
Pros: "Equipment, crew"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was disorganized."
Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Pros: "All worked as expected"
Cons: "No remarks to make"
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Cons: "I never made it. See reasons above. feel free to check into the letter I wrote your customer service. Terrible"
Cons: "They don’t have order while boarding No space for the carry on- they didn’t ask to check them for free."
Cons: "All flights in Frankfurt boarded via jet bridge. Flight to Greece boarded via a bus. Freezing weather in Frankfurt. Are Germans prejudiced to Greek passengers?"
Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "On all my flights everything was on time and ready to go. Crew was super helpful and friendly. Ready great service and constant visual of crew for us if we needed them. Was not expecting to be fed sooo much on my flights which was awesome! Seats were comfortable, pillow and blanket were a nice accommodation as well! The entertainment was awesome - made 8 hours quickly disappear! Will definitely fly with Lufthansa again when I go overseas!"
Pros: "Flight attendants we good"
Cons: "Business class seats were just regular seats without a 3rd person. Legroom bad and seats narrow. Not good value b"
Pros: "This is the first time I actually enjoyed a meal on a flight. It was ravioli in tomato sauce, just perfect! Superfriendly cabin crew"

Pros: "Crew was great and helpful. Flight was half empty so it was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was not very clean."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal choice not offered"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."

Pros: "Comortable seats, great service, combined with good food and entertainment made for an enjoyable flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was poorly executed"
Cons: "A man next to me took a picture of me when he thought I was asleep."
Pros: "Great overall experience oafter some years of absence using other major carriers"
Cons: "All bathroom downstairs, crammed stairs long long waiting , no room to wait for your turn"
Pros: "Food wine and professional courteous staff. So much nicer than American airlines"
Cons: "Needed entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding was like a "free-for-all", the gate agents exerted NO control at all. The departure was delayed about 15 minutes (no big thing" but then we sat in our seats for an additional 45-50 minutes for a total of more than an hour!. This after an 11+ hour first leg."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The plane left without us and we were still in the air. They shut down the airport in Frankfurt so we couldn't take off at our destination and when they allowed us to fly into Frankfurt, Lufthansa didn't wait and hundreds of people were stranded from different areas because of the closed airport to all flights. We waited 5 hours to rebook a destination back to the USA and traveling lasted 24hours. Right now I'm not sure if I'll be refunded my tickets for thedomestic airline flight. WE will NEVER want to fly out of Frankfurt and especially with Lufthansa. I have to say the people at the service counters were very nice and helpful but it took 5 hours to get serviced and were missed 2 possible connecting flights. Lufthansa was a good airline but that was 20 years ago. The airport is too big now has too many delays so I'll avoid it at all cost."
Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"
Pros: "Extra leg room in the emergency exit area was great for a tall person. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and they switched the gates. The flight was overbooked. No entertainment offered."
Pros: "It departed and arrived on time. The boarding process was very efficient thanks to Frankfurt's automated ticked checking gates."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was ok. It was short but loud. Service was good but seats were tight and no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Crew are the best!"
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Pros: "I like the comfortable seats"
Cons: "Service lag a little"
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"

Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Not much but the staff"
Cons: "No room, boarding was slow, zero bag or legroom"
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"
Pros: "The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well."
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding and friendly and efficient staff. Landed 15min ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."
Pros: "Personnel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was a wonderful flight and service . Hospitality and welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing ."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"

Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew took care with calm and kindness of a man in deep distress and erratic behavior. Impressive. More generally , the crew showed respect and attention to all passengers. Not frequent."
Pros: "Nothing... and we were late which made me miss my connecting flight and I wasn’t reimbursed because it was with a different airline"
Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"
Pros: "The fresh bread and cheese."
Cons: "The staff is very unprofessional in receiving the passengers and serving the drinks mainly. The luggage wasn’t received and after 24 hrs no news about it! It’s a shame"
Pros: "Charmingly nice crew and involving captain"
Cons: "the delay of the flight, the drinks we had to pay in the lounge, some poeple got a 25$ compensation coupon and we didn’t. The connecting time was about 1 hour and the luggage was not put on the plane to beirut"

Cons: "MD planes are old and not very comfortable."
Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and caring."
Cons: "Airport services and lounge are OK."

Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Business Passngers have to wait in the same bus to board the flight what is the point then...."
Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane late departing allegedly because of cleaning the plane, but why was the cleaning done that late? Also, ground crew remarkably uninformed about what was going on in the plane. Poor communication between plane and ground crew. No explanation from pilot as to continuing reason for delay even after we boarded. Departure time, 1.00 pm, boarded at 1.10, actual departure time 1.45, causing me to almost miss my connection and definitely causing my bags to miss the connection."
Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"
Pros: "Good seat near the front."
Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Late"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "For the continuation of this flight of course I was still in the same seat in the middle and I had signed up and reserved an aisle seat"

Delayed 2+ hours, missed connecting flight

FLight crew was friendly, efficient and informative!

Plan left late, scanner was not working.

Pros: "I missed flight. Rescheduled this morning 4229 when I went to bed. Today, there is no record of the flight. I have a screen print showing the seat assignment. The 1-800 said it will call back in 4 hours. Crap! Flight scheduled in two hours."
Cons: "Offer a beverage"
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "comfortable first class seat"
Cons: "There was no wifi. No entertainment, no ability to work."
Cons: "more legroom"
Cons: "Late with a bs explanation. Nasty flight attendant"
Cons: "The plane we needed for our flight arrived really late so our flight was then of course delayed."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly compared to other airlines, and the pilots seemed more skilled as well. Very smooth landings in spite of turbulence."
Pros: "The crew was amazing,attentive and courteous."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure. Everyone was budding the lines not well organized."
Pros: "Average with nothing exceptional. My wife requires a wheelchair and that gets you through the process from chair side to boarding with no lines to wait in. But that’s normal for any airline and it’s usually the airport service."
Cons: "The usual, roomier seats, on time"
Pros: "Crew was extremely helpful."
Cons: "Flight from Philadelphia to Phoenix left about an hour late. We still made our connection but made a long travel day longer."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "British Airways is impossible to get in touch with! We had a 2 hour delays so I missed the connection from London to Edinburgh and now I can’t get ahold of an agent to inquire for standby. So instead I get to wait 9 hours for the next flight out."
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and there were zero accommodations"
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival and good flight all around."
Pros: "Good leg room!"
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "Paid extra for window seat in exit row-- but there was no window so the experience was like being in a dark space capsule. Very disappointing. At least there was unlimited legroom. Waited for 30 minutes to get luggage at LAX so giving it a low "boarding" rating"
Pros: "We left on time and the crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable. They would not recline at all. I was not looking to lay down but sitting straight up for 2 hours made it very uncomfortable. But, I guess since you added the extra seats, there is not enough room for anything. I am only 5'7" and feel sorry for those people who are much taller."
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "How nice the landing was. And how really sort it was"
Cons: "Took off late and arrived late. Took15 minutes to taxi to gate"
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "Legroom terrible"
Pros: "Thankful for the pilot... He got us to Charlotte alive."
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for two hours prior to take off. Also, I'm not a fan of being bribed into credit cards, and the whole class system... Everyone is a human passenger"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Very full no isle seat!"
Pros: "Comfort of leg room on BA and AA operated flights, was better then virgin atlantic which I usually take."
Cons: "Movie selection was old, not as good as virgin atlantic airlines"
Cons: "Think this plane still had screens overhead vs personal screens."
Cons: "AS changed flight time,had 3.5 hour layover in charolette originally was going to arrive at 11am in Denver, didn't arrive until 1:30pm"
Pros: "Timely, decent plane and a great crew. Next to me was a family with a young (one-year-old) kid. The crew were so accommodating and went above and beyond to help them. They deserve an award!"
Cons: "Entertainment system: world's worst touchscreen Food: I am sure it can be better"
Pros: "I like the fact we got to Dayton 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we don't have access to the overhead"
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Pretty good dinner and breakfast, complimentary wine"
Cons: "Slow flaky entertainment system didn't work at all in some seats, needed multiple 10-minute reboots in other seats. I was unable to complete a 2 hour movie on a 9 hour flight. No internet."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."
Cons: "3 hour delay. Old plane."
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "The waiting time due to the storm and the no communication from the crew . 5 hours strand on the tarmac plus 9 flying."
Cons: "I paid hard-earned money for an expensive flight to Madrid. Not only were we very delayed on the way there, we were also delayed on the way back. We spent 3 hours back and forth on the tarmac stuck on an old bus in 100+ degree weather being delivered conflicting information, summed up to the seats being "broken". We got a "bathroom break" during which was talked to very rudely by the flight attendant at the gate, and then was almost left behind by the bus on the tarmac. Additionally, once we got onto the plane, it was extremely old (I'm talking no TV's, ashtrays on seats, filthy tables, dirty seats). To top it off, when I went to the restroom in the middle on the flight, I saw flight attendants drinking Tito's and soda in the back in the plane and talking loudly. I am not usually one to complain- but this was a particularly bad experience and terrible ending to my vacation."
Cons: "Trtvr Rrrrrcffrrcr rr crfrr"
Cons: "The video screens weren't very good. You had to tap screen multiple times to select a choice."
Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "Ground delay but we still got there in time and I made a close connectionshort flight"
Pros: "The flight was fast and mostly smooth, you can't control turbulence. The flight attendants were very friendly. Turned out to be a great trip."
Cons: "Nothing was bad overall. It was a very nice flight"
Pros: "Snacks and entertainment"
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Female attendant on 11/22 mpls>Dallas-Fort was very rude."
Pros: "Watched movies most of flight and the wine was free. The pilots got us there safely."
Cons: "They never called for groups, except 1st class. After they boarded it was a free for all. Wasn't allowed to check in online, had to wait until I got to airport.The seats just keep getting smaller and smaller. The microwaved tv dinner they served was horrible. Someone pooped on the bathroom floor."

Amazing flight, price and experience

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Had the seats in the emergency exit row had liftable handles between the seats, it would have been more comfortable... the rigid seats where not easy on my hips for a 9 hour flight"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."
Pros: "Friendly and quiet crew! Good, because the only thing I could do on the flight was sleep."
Cons: "Was not told to download entertainment application until onboard and out of range for the wifi. They also didn't mention having ipads to rent, not sure if they were available."
Cons: "No movies to watch, they told us to download their app and we would be able to watch movies. Tried to download the app on my phone without success, then tired to download the app on my laptop, again no luck. The staff had no clue how to help me, really old plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. The dinner was similar to business class but the breakfast was just a slice of bread."
Cons: "The leg room was too small and the seat did not recline enough to have a decent sleep."
Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."
Pros: "It made it to Athens smoothly & on time."
Cons: "There was no movies available to watch. Flight attendant said we need the app to watch movies however there wasn't enough time to download the app before the flight took off to download it in time."
Cons: "Worst experience !!!!"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Bad food, no entertainment. Uncomfortable plane"
Pros: "Plenty of room in economy for my 6'3" frame, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Everything was great - more selection on the movies/tv would be a plus"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say"
Cons: "Originating flight was delayed, so missed connection in Montreal and had to be rerouted. After going through 5 airports to reach our final destination, we finally made it - without our luggage!!! To make matters worse, the complete and extreme lack of empathy on behalf of Air Canada's customer service desk was less than appreciated by us.... As it turns out, Air Canada was aware all along that we would miss our connection; however, they still had us board our originating flight. The gate agent should have been conscientious and informed us that the delay was ongoing with our flight being number 22+ on the tarmac to take off, thus guaranteeing our missed connection. They should have rebooked us on another flight from our original destination vs rebooking us upon arrival in Montreal to miss further connecting flights. Very disappointed!!!!! Based on this experience alone, never again will I or my family travel Air Canada."
Pros: "The food was phenomenal for airplane food, the best I've had in 100s of flights! The flight was half empty, so taking over 3 seats to lie down was nice :) Very efficient boarding process at the Montreal airport, with updated wait times and fast moving line."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "This was a +10 hour trans Atlantic flight. We walked on and immediately noticed there were no TV screens. I expected that the crew would be handing out portable screens instead which would have been ok but pretty inconvenient. This was not the case. We asked the crew and were told that to have entertainment for the flight we would have to download the Air Canada flight into our OWN devices and connect to the airplane wifi. They also explained that you can't download the app while connected to the airplane wifi so anyone who wanted entertainment had to scramble to download the app while we were still on the ground and Use cellular data! at this point 300 people were either panicking because they didn't have a personal device with them, didn't have a charger for their device and so would have power issues or were forced to use up roaming data because they had non Canadian phone plans!!! At the very least staff should have told passengers about this setup while they were waiting at the gate, so that people would have time to download the app with airport wifi! add to all this the fact that the app was extremely low quality and the options for movies/show were disappointingly dated and limited. This was not officially a cheap low cost flight for my family but the service we got certainly would categorize it as such. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Food tasted good. I pad entertainment was nice"
Cons: "Paid extra for the premium seats. When I went to the lounge they were very rude and said I signed up too late and did not even offer for me to pay to get in. Customer service on the phone was very rude again. The Toronto airport also is a hot mess. Some more. TV screens with gate info would be nice"
Cons: "Filthy No entertainment Had to pay for beer and wine"
Pros: "Food was okay. Crew was okay."
Cons: "Plane was so packed and tight we felt like sardines. Even a few more inches of room would make a huge difference. They also added two or three extra rows to the back of the plane. Folks were practically sitting in the crew staging area and literally directly next to the bathroom door. So glad we didn't get one of those seats."
Cons: "See above. We never made it on this flight! While we were able to rebook within a few hours the lack of coordination in Montreal was extremely frustrating."
Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "No room. Cramped, impossible to sleep on an overseas flight"
Pros: "Professional and polite crew"
Cons: "Did not realize Air Canada Rouge did not have screens at every seat, made the 10 hour flight a little longer. Not a deal breaker and was overall pleased with the flight."
Pros: "Air crew was nice. Pilot nice too."
Cons: "Old plane. Smaller seat size than comparable airlines. Terrible food: a slice of oily cske, served in a plastic sleeve, must be the new low for an international breakfast...no individual tvs on the sets....hello, step into the 21st century.... And the selection available via your iPad or laptop and their wifi was small, and old...we had paid to upgrade our economy tickets to the next level, and we expected more...the size of the upgraded seats was not great and there wa no foot rest to put your feet on, which is a significant help to someone who flies so many hours and can assist with circulation...."
Pros: "The crew were Greek and I liked them very much. Other than that, though, nothing good stood out."
Cons: "There was a riot in Athens that day that delayed us 2 hours. I arrived in Athens WAY later than expected WITHOUT my baggage. It was still in Toronto and never moved once they made me late for my Munich flight. I did not have my baggage for several days following that and it made my trip difficult."
Pros: "The crew was fast and efficient at helping get the carry-on luggage stowed. Beverages were offered frequently. The seat was comfortable and i appreciated that the aisle armrest was easy to lift up for getting in and out of my seat."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit cramped."
Cons: "more movie and technology availability."
Pros: "Zoned boarding"
Cons: "Food limited and must be purchased. Entertainment must have downloaded app."
Pros: "The crew, that it all"
Cons: "The plane was clearly an older plane, there was NO on board entertainment for a 12 hr flight. The food was not good and there was no free wine - which is not normal for international"
Cons: "Tell customers beforehand that they need to download the AirCanada app to use wifi. One is unable to download the app in flight, and so we are without internet the entire time. I can't believe on this super long distance flight we didn't have TVs to watch anything. I had one on my first and shorter flight, but not the actual international flight portion? What the hell?"
Cons: "If it's the same airline, why not wait for the 16 people that had a delayed connecting flight."
Pros: "Leg room on a wide bodied airplane and movie equipment working well. Stewards were by more than once offering food or refreshment."
Pros: "The gate crew was instrumental in helping us board our flight when the first leg was delayed and or connection time was only 30 minutes."
Cons: "Of all the international airlines I have flown, this was by far the least well equipped for a long haul flight. There was no entertainment (we had to download an app to your personal device beforehand, which we were not informed about until already onboard). There were iPads for rent, but not nearly enough for the number of passengers requesting. The dinner was a good size, but there were no additional snacks, only small sized drinks offered, and alcohol was not complimentary, and a smaller size than what's provided while in N America for the same price. Overall, I was quite unimpressed with Air Canada, and will avoid flying with them in the future, when possible."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Pros: "Served edible food (not the best quality)"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; No source of entertainment; No functional charging ports; charges for snacks; some staff seemed rude"
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. Crew was courteous. Streaming service was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Food was not good, and there was little food and drink service. Having to pay for an emergency exit seat."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I've never experienced an international flight with so many children who were up until all hours running up and down the aisles. 2 of the people in my group sat in front of two older children (ages 12 & 10, about) who kept kicking their seats. Eventually, they told the father, who separated the girls, but was just as antsy as his daughters. All lights were left on, making sleeping impossible. The crew took FOREVER bringing food and drinks out. The plane was so disgustingly messy - it looked like a small explosion happened on the plane. It was hot and uncomfortable. The flight experience made us nervous for what to expect in Greece when we arrived. Luckily, Greece was cleaner than the flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Food, seating and entertainment was poor overall. No tvs/ entertainment of any sort"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Boarding was typical."
Cons: "What a horrible experience. Thanks for spreading out the screaming children evenly (really nice on a long flight). No entertainment at all. Getting off the plane was a God send, till I found out my luggage was separated/lost in 2 different parts of the world , none of which was were I was, it showed up 3 days later, 1 damaged."
Cons: "It was an Air Canada Rouge flight sold as Lufthansa. Bait and switch."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Not clean aircraft. My luggage left behind in Toronto.No entertainment unless you knew by chance that you need to download an application and having your own device.."
Pros: "The staff and service"
Cons: "Movie options from yul to lax"
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "The 2-3-2 seat configuration is better for travelling as a duo. We were provided with blankets and pillows for the 9 HR flight. Food was quite tasty for airline meals."
Cons: "Host staff made very few trips up and down the aisles. Have not before been on an Air Canada flight where there are no seat back screens, so it was a surprise not to have any in flight entertainment."
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Pros: "These were the reason I booked this flight"
Cons: "Temperature in cabin, I froze, thank god I planned ahead"
Pros: "Again, we arrived safely but a bit late."
Cons: "We're on a flight for 10 hours and our breakfast was a piece of banana bread. After a very disappointing dinner. Really didn't cut it. Have to access entertainment on my device - no thanks. Overall they just did everything on the cheap."
Pros: "I got lucky and got a very good seat. that was great. The plane was kept at a very decent temperature - a little cold but not an ice box."
Cons: "the food was really of a poor quality. that was quite surprising. even the dessert was inedible."
Cons: "On the Montreal-Athens leg the meal was free but of poor quality and quantity. Breakfast was just a piece of banana bread... No entertainment system in the aircraft. Had to rent iPad with very poor quality earphones (struggled to listen to the movies) Also some of the movies were not adjusted for the iPad which translated into using only a portion of the iPad screen."
Pros: "Nothing to like or not like. Classic small (Embraer) flight for 3 hours. Nothing special one way or the other."
