Nice brand new plane for a short hop flight!
Seatback unit very difficult to make work.
The check-in boarding counter only had 1 employee, the flight was running 20mins late.
Delayed departure. Made me have to pay more for parking and had to call out of work.
Old plane. Delayed but no apology. Not great
When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.
Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.
There was a storm brewing in NYC but you would never know it from the flight. Great experience and barely any turbulence considering the storm.
Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.
Pros: "The crew members were nice and didn't bother while sleep when giving out snacks & drinks (I've had this done to me before, annoying). Plane was comfortable because it wasn't packed, so was able to have a seat empty in-between me. The entertainment offered was really good, the connecting to the Go-inflight WiFi was a bit difficult, but no biggie."
Cons: "THE DELTA TERMINAL AT HARTSFIELD AIRPORT, ATLANTA, IS DIS-ORGANIZED!!!! THERE WAS NO ONE GIVING PROPER INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROPPING BAGS OFF, PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVERY KIND OF MADE LINE!!! ALMOST 30 - 40 MINUTES OF WASTED TIME, THIS AND THE SLOWEST TSA PROCESS CAUSED MANY TO PROBABLY MISS THEIR FLIGHTS, INCLUDING ME (THANKFULLY MY FLIGHT WOUND UP BEING 3HS DELAYED - THAT'S NEXT). DELTA SHOULD INFORM TRAVELERS ABOUT TIMES WITH THEIR BAG DROP AND TSA!!! 3HRS TO GET A SMALL PART THAT ONLY TAKES 2 MINUTES TO FIX, I'M VERY GRATEFUL IT WAS FOUND WHILE ON THE GROUND, BUT AFTER 1 AND HALS HOURS COULDN'T WE HAVE JUST CHANGED PLANES!?!?! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AFTER 10A, WASN'T UNTIL ALMOST 2P.."
Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Pros: "The Grand junction staff is always great."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "Nothing worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Everything Delta was so poor quality!!! The flight attendants were not helpful."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Cons: "See above description"
Cons: "Seat back entertainment was outdated and non functional. Drinks were served but not a pretzel or peanut to be seen unless you were in first class."
Pros: "The entertainment console worked this time. Over the past year it has worked only about half of the time."
Cons: "GpldMedallion holder, first SkyPriority people to board, sitting in Delta Comfort and still could not get overhead bin space by my seat."
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."
Pros: "Average comfort compatible with all airlines"
Cons: "WestJet is a good airline"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "sing us to be about an hour late @2:15am"
Cons: "The food could have been better. I don’t mind paying but some nicer, healthier choices would have been nice. It is airplane food so no real surprise. :)"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly!"
Cons: "Westjet connect was not available on this plane!"
Pros: "I like that my original flight was rescheduled but I needed to arrive in Vancouver for my connection so I'm happy they moved me to an earlier flight. Very accommodating!-"
Cons: "Entrainment on flight"
Pros: "Crew were fairly attentive, have experienced better. Liked the Canadian entertainment options, even if very limited."
Cons: "Seats were okay, the plane is really showing it's age. Movie selection was very limited, and very dated."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Frequent American Airlines passenger. Found WestJet had far more leg room and plenty overhead storage. Plane was clean and flight attendants where attentive."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Dry accommodating staff all around. Thank you"
Cons: "More space between people. Not much you can do I understand that. So overall great"
Pros: "Crew were very good. The economy seats were "ok". Food was good and the service was very good."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't have enough new movies to watch. The leg room could've been better."
Pros: "Crew was great, served us multiple times ! Even tho crew was late 25 mins. We have landed 10 mins early"
Pros: "The entertainment made the time go by fast."
Cons: "More food purchase options"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "The airport staff was horrendous."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Always a ‘full flight’ and they run out of spacein the overhead storage"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Having my luggage. 2nd flight and 2nd time my luggage didn’t arrive with me."
Pros: "A little late on take off but made up time in the air. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed a bit tighter seating than other WestJet flights I've been on. Still it was fine for a 3 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "That I had to pay $30 for one checked bag, would have thought the first one was free!"
Cons: "For some reason, the return was in Hamilton not Toronto. Unfortunately, I noticed after I paid. Not sure why the flight wasn't from Toronto."
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Pros: "I loved how spacious the plane was. The seat was comfortable with lots of legroom."
Cons: "Gate arrival and boarding delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great. Tea or coffee would have been nice. Having to pay for everything is ridiculous"
Cons: "Three sets of crying children and parents who unable or reluctant to deal with them. Held everyone hostage."
Pros: "Excellent service and smooth flight!"
Pros: "WestJet great airline"
Cons: "YYC new Gate “C” poorly organized"
Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "The screens were so old and bad that it would be a total waste of money to pay for the PPV channels. Seats were hard and unconfortable"
Pros: "Westjet crew is fantastic!"
Cons: "Wish it could have been a longer flight to enjoy the WestJet crew’s hospitality longer"
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in Plus (1F) but legroom was cramped, no choice of decent food (cookies, chips and chocolate - all sugar or fat & salt) Most of the TV channels were not working along with the map display. Definitely not worth the extra cost of Plus fare"
Pros: "There is no entertainment so why ask.this question repeatedly and I understand on longer flights that is valid but on these flights it is not applicable"
Cons: "I didn't like having to go outside in the cold to board the plane and to deplane."
Pros: "I travelled alone with a baby and all the staff at Westjet wete so helpful"
Pros: "The trip was uneventful........................................"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..............................................................."
Cons: "Being stopped at every connection for screening. No communication about why. Nearly missing the connection due to the screenings. Being held in holding because it was being confirmed that my bag would make it on my next flight and then once confirmed it never made it anyways!!! Unprofessional and poorly executed all the way through."
Pros: "The plane was less busy so many people had an empty seat next to them. It was great for leg room and I slept the whole flight!"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Flight was on time. No overbooking."
Pros: "Not much.... so..so"
Cons: "Crew. & entertainment ( why pay for it )"
Pros: "Great service. Friendly. Connections are well timed so you dont have to wait long to transfer."
Pros: "The plane wasn't full."
Cons: "The crew was late."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable . Good price and no delays. I like buying just what you need (food, movies, internet) at a very decent price."
Pros: "On time, luggage arrived even with yer short connect in Calgary"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they never let us onboard even when I was able to make it to the gate before it was closed. After missing the flight the hotel vouchers was provided but we were asked to report in 2 hours (i.e 4AM) so think abou whole night was literally wasted. Finally next flight was 11AM in the morning which I ended up boarding and finally reach Toronto after 8 hours of delay."
Pros: "Crew are always pleasant it just gets a bit too hokey!"
Cons: "Calgary airport for a transfer between Canada and the US is like a bad episode of Monty Python! It takes far too long and is far too dependent on the efficiency of silly tram drivers, baggage handlers who are phantoms and computer efficacy! All I care about at the airport, and all I want from airport staff is ruthless efficiency. Anything besides ruthless efficiency is just obnoxious and wastes my time!! No wifi on the aircraft nothing decent to eat on a flight scheduled during the dinner hour"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
Pros: "Not often do you feel like you really "welcomed aboard." This was not the case on our flights to and from Calgary. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. That was refreshing. I did like the Westjet Connect feature. You don't have a TV screen in the back of each seat. You download the app and you get to watch TV, Movies, News all on your own device for free. A nice plus is that you can change all your devices with USB power port at each seats you never run out of a charge."
Cons: "The only thing that I did dislike was on the return we flew a 737-600 which did not leg room like the 737-800 we flew on first. The under seat storage is skimpy in the middle seat where an entertainment server is located"
Pros: "staff was great, left and arrived on time and we stayed up in the air!"
Cons: "Should be more hearty food and more entertainment like tv, movies and radio"
Short flight from Houston to DFW. And apparently no InFlight entertainment nor working charging outlet either. Oh well, not too bad as it’s a short trip.
The departure time changed 3 times in a 2 day period and in one of those times it was moved from 1:40pm to 1:25pm causing many people to rush through the airport due to the earlier boarding time
The inflight facilities were great. The Q suite was excellent in comfort. The main meal was served late. Also they didn’t have the pre-booked meal option asked for. This could be improved. Generally everything was great.
It was disappointing at AMD airport. Qatar airways staff @AMD airport was working very slow , people @ counter#1 were just taking instead helping economy class passengers to get their boarding pass after first and business class was done getting boarding pass. Also they asked RT PCR report again @ boarding gate - which is really annoying. Qatar airways did not inform regarding changes guide line regarding RT PCR test - they asked me to take RT PCR again @ airport since my one was done before 72 hours as per old guidelines. How much time does it take for Qatar airways to send email regarding updated guidelines?
Original flight got delayed 2 hours the only option for an earlier flight was to sit in back row window seat which didn’t recline and the fuselage curved over making it claustrophobic without a normal window. Worse flight in twenty years. American doesn’t give a rip about customer service. They just want to pack more seats in plane. They also didn’t have a full arrange of beverages and only had pretzels for a 3 hour flight.
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Cons: "When I arrived to check in at 5:48am for my 6:20am flight, I was treated very poorly. The lady at the counter asked me what time my flight was and I said 6:20 and right off the bat she was extremely rude and said that I missed the flight. I panicked internally and asked her how that was possible?! She said the cutoff was at 5:45am and I missed it. I asked if there were other flights available today or tomorrow and she said there was nothing she could do and that I had to call the booking company to see if they could book me. I wanted to cry because my friend had just dropped me off and I called to see if she was close enough to turn back. Luckily she hadn’t left yet. I called the booking company and they were able to book me a trip for the following day but they charged me an additional $100. I wish they had disclosed that we need to be there 45 minutes to an hour early otherwise you miss your flight. And it’s ridiculous that I had to pay an extra $100... financially it was stressful due to the covid 19 situation. I was extremely disappointed in how the lady at the check in counter at American Airlines treated me. She www extremely rude and I have never been spoken to in a way that made me feel attacked."
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Cons: "Boarding crew was not very polite. You can get the same message across with out being rude. Just not necessary."
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Cons: "Bag check fee is steep for students."
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "Friendly staff great pilots we got up and down safely...."
Cons: "No time to grab lunch all I had was pretzels do you"
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "They refunded my ticket (although I spent over $65 on cabs to and from the airport)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost two hours - I knew I was going to miss my connection before I even left my airport. They told me they could not put my family and myself in a hotel and that we would need to take another flight the next day that had ANOTHER layover."
Pros: "What you expect from an internal US flight: no food, crowded flight, cramped seats. I have come to expect two things - arrive on time and arrive safely. The good, we arrived safely."
Cons: "Pulled away from gate and sat on tarmac for over an hour while technical difficulties fixed. We should not have boarded until plane was ready. We arrived over one hour late and just made connecting flight. Our luggage was not so fortunate."
Pros: "Thankful for the pilot..."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of being bribed into credit cards, and the whole class system... Everyone is a human passenger"
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."
Pros: "it was a reasonably priced flight, so I guess having to put up with the delay and a cramped plane is what you should expect"
Cons: "the fact that we were delayed for over 3 hours (mechanical? then switched plane). The plane itself was really cramped - I realize you have to put up with that on domestic flights, but international, really??? American should figure out other ways to cut costs."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Pros: "I like that their fleet has become slightly more modernized. Leathers seats are a plus"
Cons: "In flight entertainment and charging stations are a must. Slightly lacking in both those. Their flagship dreamliners have all these amenities but are new planes. Boarding on American seems like a broken process."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Slight departure delay - no big deal"
Cons: "I didn't like the food at all, and couldn't complete it."
Pros: "Fairly new plane... new and much improved entertainment system..."
Cons: "I used Kayak to find my ticket and fill out my information (all kayak logos on top of the page and so on). However, when my confirmation email and e-ticket came in, they were issued by Budgetair.com. I had no experience with them and took it to be a reliable website since they were working with Kayak. However, I had to change/cancel my flight because of delayed passport delivery, and this is when everything turned very Ugly! I had to spend an hour over the phone to get connected to an agent with BudgetAir, who disconnected the line within 2 minutes saying: “please hold so I can pull up your information”. This game went on for 6 hours. I tried to connect with the airline directly to make the change, which was not possible since Budgetair had placed a restriction on this ticket. After 6-7 hours, which meant no work for me or lunch because I was sitting behind my desk with a phone on my hand, I got through an agent who was rude and impolite. He took 15 minutes to find flights for the new dates (I did it in 2 minutes on their website), and then told me to pay $315 in extra fess. When I inquired that the prices on your website for the exact same ticket is way cheaper than my original ticket price, he got angry and aggressive. Basically implying that I have no choice to take their offer as is, or let go of my original ticket price of over $2000. Long story short, DO NOT buy from BudgetAir if you like having a peace of mind!"
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The five hour delay of departure was not fine."
Pros: "Early flight was not as crowded"
Cons: "But was very busy just the same. Weather was poor"
Pros: "It was 10 minutes early"
Pros: "ground crew were friendly"
Pros: "Very happy with my trip"
Cons: "My lineup in USA entry line was ridiculous and I missed my boarding time because it was as hard to get the air Canada attendants attention so I ended up waiting 40 minutes anxious about missing my plane. Their kiosks weren’t working proper hence the longer line."
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "flight was late"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. Westjet is better."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "Many connecting flights jammed together F terminal at YYZ. SOME thing caused delay after delay. This really messed up baggage people. Once we boarded after like - 10 delays and a gate change, there were NUMEROUS whole-flight mixups with luggage - so many similar flight numbers traveling to same destination and whole flights awaiting their luggage. Our party of four had our luggage spread through THREE different planes. WTH? No customer service at DTW once we arrived and there were so many livid people. Absolutely awful. We were supposed to arrive at 5PM and it's now 3:11AM. My son just completed filing a luggage claim loss. And we are off to drive home to Grand Rapids two hours away. Nightmare."
Pros: "Very good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment selection poor and dated."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were to close together"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay."
Pros: "Great food, attentive service and comfortable seating"
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "small flights"
Cons: "I had to leave"
Pros: "This was the absolute worst experience of my life. Out flight from Calgary to LAX was on the complete other side of the airport than our connector to San Diego. After a delay we had a short amount of time to get to the next flight. We literally were told to just cross the parking lot. Well... that ended up being a 25 minute run across the airport to only have to go thru security again. After navigating construction and parking structures we got to our gate 10 minutes late and would not be let on the flight. There was zero communication, sympathy or help from the United Airlines staff. We were told it was not their problem because we came in through Air Canada- BUT we booked through United! All in all it was an absolute nightmare that ended in us renting a car at 12am and driving back to San Diego with zero compensation from United Airlines"
Cons: "No communication between airlines! No customer service to fix their lack of planning and communication. Just terrible all around"
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Cons: "4.5 hour delay. 30 mins to try and use a voucher (???)"
Cons: "To small of plane."
Pros: "seat beverage flight service time"
Cons: "Not noisy kids control It can not rest during the flight"
Cons: "Kayak failed to notify us of a change in our flight of four hours and change of route"
Pros: "This flight is a step off the path."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight delayed as usual (for Air Canada)"
Cons: "Can't believe not even pretzels"
Pros: "Screen for each seat with movie and TV options. Seating was comfortable and had adequate space."
Cons: "Only drinks were offered, no snack. There was food available for purchase, but no snack item provided."
Pros: "Once I actually got on the rebooked flight, everything went great."
Cons: "I get it, weather happens, but airlines should have figured out by now how to make any issues that come from that as painless as possible. Air Canada did not have it together. There was little communication and coordination. People had to wait multiple times in ungodly long lines while agents spent way too much time with each customer. There was misinformation and lack of information given by agents and at times no one to help at all. When there's weather it should be all hands on deck until the effected customers get to where they need to be. Otherwise it's an aggravating and nearly intolerable experience. Commercial airlines have been around for 60+ years - figure it out already."
Cons: "TV didn't work Not snack or snack/food options even asked Got offered a drink much too late in the flight"
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"
Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Entertainment console didn't work"
Pros: "Everything was satisfactory. I wasn't expecting to pay for my light suitcase"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Roomy preferred seats"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Everything is perfect in this flight .. Thnx"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."
Pros: "It was okay."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue. The food was horrible. I will never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Q400 noisy, lack of storage space"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient. The entertainment consoles were nice, having games and movies and flight tracking."
Cons: "Not notified about long flight delay until 5 mins before scheduled boarding. Happened once with my flight and twice with my daughter's."
Cons: "My wife & I sat apart for the entire trip b/c Air Canada did not allow us to pick our seats till 24 hrs before the flight, except by paying a fee!"
Pros: "The plane could fly"
Cons: "German Shepard in my seat. We didnt have seats together. Very bad flight"
Cons: "the airline was not helpful with accommodating pregnant wife. Rude. Won't fly with them again."
Pros: "Run by united but more efficient than a recent Air Canada flight."
Cons: "3 hour flight and had to pay extra for entertainment. Only two biscuits given for food. Cramped seats for anyone 6ft tall."
Pros: "Although I had to fast forward to get to the end of the movie I did enjoy it."
Pros: "The plane is so uncomfortably small it shouldn't be used."
Cons: "A larger plane or at least more comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was late getting out because inbound flight was late."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Unfortunately I can’t name anything I liked. I guess we got to our destination in one piece."
Cons: "Staff doesn’t seem to care at all. Eveytime I have travelled there are huge line ups and in the past I kept missing my flights despite being at the airport 2-3 hours prior to departure. Staff is rude and sarcastic. I keep telling myself I’ll never fly air canada again. But sometimes that’s the only option I have."
Pros: "I liked just about everything."
Cons: "Happened to sit next to an individual who had very wide shoulders like mine. So it was a little tight."
Pros: "Friendly crew. I slept most of the way."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendents"
Cons: "Rescheduled to two hours prior with no explanation or apology"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was direct to my destination."
Cons: "I didn't like that my tiny carry-on was scratched by the angry flight attendant who, when I asked if he would help me get the bag up there said: "did you try?" UH yeah. That's why I need your help."
Pros: "Hard working crew."
Cons: "We were delayed for over 2 hours and there were very few updates. They changed the type of plane and we were unable to bring our carry-on baggage with us."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Ancient, noisy Dash 8 aircraft with seats that negatively impacted blood circulation - my butt kept going to sleep on a short 40 minute flight."
Pros: "Watched a movie free of charge. Smooshed in like sardines."
Cons: "The taxi from the airport made me walk to my destination. The flight from Toronto to Quebec City was extremely late."
Pros: "Timely take off and landing. Smooth fligbt."
Cons: "Upper bin was too small to hold hand carry."
Cons: "I called beforehand to ask if I had access to the lounge during my lay over because I bought a business class ticket. I was told NO."
Pros: "Time of day when it was scheduled."
Cons: "Because of the delays out of Portland I almost didn't make my flight to a Victoria. I generally don't fly Air Canada and this is why . I've never had more than an okay experience."
Pros: "Flight delayed for 1 hour"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Small plane with minimal luggage space"
Pros: "Nothing since I still don't have my bag"
Cons: "The fact that I don't have my bag"
Cons: "I am a professional musician. I tried to carry my guitar on this plane, but it was too big to fit in the overhead. Nobody stopped me when checking in, to let me know this would be the case (no pun intended). The crew on the plane were very accommodating and let me put it in a crew closet, but with no gate check policy this was the only option! Please return gate check policies! Admittedly, the crew were pretty darn grumpy about it, but they did make it work."
Pros: "Small airplane but staff was very friendly! Would travel with them again!!"
Cons: "They delayed my flight out of Thunder Bay and removed me from the LA flight. I was stranded in Toronto covering my expenses for 2 days. Air Canada was unhelpful and rude as usual. I will avoid flying that airline at all costs!"
Pros: "My TV didn't work. The USB plug in was busted out and the power plug didn't work. Long flight with nothing to do."
Pros: "Our quick flight turned into a longer wait as we waited for the plane to de-ice. The flight attendant was amazing! she was so funny and kept us entertained and informed on what was going on."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing flashy, but it's a 45 minute flight. We took off, landed in the right place, I'm good."
Cons: "I wish they would board the plane from the back to the front... Waiting on the stairs when it's colder than a snowman's nads is not my favorite. But again, short flight, winter.. we expect this."
Cons: "I found out they switched the time of the flight for 12 hours later than what I bought. I received one email and the time was in military time. I think it's criminal to change the flight with this big of a change. Also no confirmation of if it was received. I planned my trip and was totally thrown for a loop with this dramatic of a change. I'll never fly air Canada again nor will my family."
Pros: "The staff was very good, friendly, accommodating, and they found my wallet and paged me before I left the terminal. Thank goodness!!!! Appreciate it guys."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, which I suppose is out of anyone's control, but we could've got a free snak or something for the trouble. I got home at midnight instead of 10 when I worked the next morning. Mostly what bothered me though was when I was checking in on-line, before my flight. I payed 30$ to upgrade to one of the premium seats in a row with just me specifically so I could put up the middle arm rest and not have it dig into my hip the whole way, but when I sat down I discovered that my arm rests were fused to the chair & I couldn't adjust them. Now I know this isn't the end of the world, but it would be nice if you would've put that somewhere I could've read BEFORE I paid extra. I ended up paying more money to be more uncomfortable. just be more clear is all I'm saying."
Pros: "the fight was on time, the attendant was friendly"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "It was pretty cramped; I hit my head on the overhead bins a couple of times."
Pros: "My flight with Air Canada went smoothly and on time. I am impressed with the efficiency the staff respond to my request for a window seat (which I paid extra for) but a glitch on the online process only shows for the short leg from Seattle to Vancouver. The attendant fixed it for the remaining legs at my request the first time. I appreciated that. I find the help for passengers making connection in the international flight through security very good and efficient (with the yellow card sign. )"
Cons: "I find the allowance for only one 10kg carried on luggage for an international flight poor service. I ended up paying extra for a checked luggage."
Pros: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "TINY plane with not enough room for carry-on bags. If an airline is going to charge for checked bags and passenger follow the rules for carry on items planes need to be built to accommodate that."
Cons: "No complimentary food"
Pros: "Crew for this flight were great Best crew on a air canada flight ever They were pleasant professional and really made the flight a great flight"
Cons: "Again great great crew"
Pros: "Left late but pilot made up most of the time"
Cons: "Leaving late, but can't do much with weather delays"
Pros: "Short flight, and very uneventful."
Pros: "The entertainment options were nice and the flight arrived pretty much on time"
Cons: "The flight was cold at times Half of the flight crew seemed very unfriendly No ice for the drinks"
Pros: "Staff were very kind."
Cons: "The seat assignment charge sets things off wrong to start. I refused to pay for my seat assignment and outbound got a comfortable seat but inbound was assigned row ahead of exit and it was the most uncomfortable seat I have ever had on a plane. Shame on Canada Air for this money grabbing policy."
Pros: "Direct service from Montreal to Washington National"
Cons: "Check in staff in Montreal gave vague, inadequate info about where to check bag and find US security check. Sent me to wrong line, then on wild goose chase through airport. One after another gave wrong or vague info."
Cons: "on march 13/ 2016 booked my tickets on kayak.com so end up getting it with vayama.on july 28 missed my flight for a family raison called vayama and explained the situation they said they will help me just they need to confirm with the airlines (air canada) and they will give me new tickets.no body called me back ,called air canada said: we have ticket but you need to get it from vayama.called vayama again he said sorry about that i will let everyone know and he promise me that i will get help a.s.a.p.did't hear from them left with my wife and two kids in morocco for a week end up buying new tickets from laufthansa"
Cons: "Kept delaying flight without giving information to the passengers for 4 hours+."
Pros: "Friendly gate agents and flight crew"
Cons: "Delay on inbound flight made us about 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues. After waiting 2 hours before anyone showed up, the Ticket agent assigned to "help" up yelled that we should call the Reservations number for help since there was not really anything she could do. and she did not provide the number."
Cons: "Cancelled due to "weather," although other flights were still going to this destination. And because they labeled it as a weather cancellation they gave us no vouchers for anything. They had initially rebooked me for a flight 2 days later...and the flight I ended up taking now included a layover and brought me to the furthest airport in my area. Highly doubt I'll fly air canada again."
Pros: "nice airport"
Cons: "No one told me I had to exit and enter via U.S. customs at Ottawa - so that was a near fail - figured it out with time but then the ongoing flight was delayed an hour anyway. Worst, I somehow left my passport on the plane or in Ottawa gate and air canada is just uncontactable- I think their chat and phone are outsourced to India - no useful information or help. Big nightmare for me. My fault perhaps but their singular refusal to help or communicate was terrible. Sad."
Pros: "No matter how bad the flight might have been, it was only 20m and therefore over quickly."
Pros: "The check in staff was knowledgable and very competent"
Cons: "There was a delay for almost one hr"
