Pros: "Comfortable (only) because lots of empty seats."
Pros: "Pilot and staff were informative and great"
Cons: "I was forced to upgrade to first class by Air France stuff in Athens which they Deceive me not telling me that the first class was not for the entire trip to JFK! If I was informed I would not spend the extra money to flight on an economy “seat” which was not comfy seats for the entire trip"
Cons: "Food is always bad."
Cons: "Cheerless stewards could perk up."
Pros: "The flight was delayed several times due to bad weather in Tampa. The gate agent was good at explaining the problem and said it was the FAA that had put a ground stop in place. It was nice to be informed about what was going on."
Cons: "The cabin was very noisy -- don't know if the AC fans were cranked up or what, but the constant roar made it difficult to converse with the crew about snack and drink choices."
Cons: "Ear buds that allow me to hear the movies clearly; better equalization of the treble, bass and volume. I had to constantly turn volume up and down because of fluctuations in the movie sound track."
Pros: "Crew was great. Always attentive to needs of the passengers."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything unless you can shorten the flight!?!"
Cons: "Customs when we arrived in MPLS. Around 300 people get off the plane and they have 1 TSA agent checking passports. Terrible staffing and management on their part. Pretty sad!"
Pros: "top notch KLM are the best"
Cons: "KLM staff at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam was rude and unprofessional. I will not fly with KLM again."
Cons: "I'd reserved seats in advance for both directions and was give seats farther back both directions when checking in at the airport."

Pros: "Good seating, great food, good service."
Pros: "Easy and on time and Delta Comfort is always the best. Easy boarding process too!"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Old airplane. Everything was worn out and stained. Entertainment system is ancient. Economy seats are so small you can barely get in and out."
Pros: "Excellent hospitality I asked for a cup of coffee at an odd time, the attendant went out of his way to brew fresh pot and served me, instead of just saying "Sorry sir, we don't have any coffee at this time....""
Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Pros: "Food was great as was the selection of movies available. The seat was comfortable and had enough leg room."
Cons: "Lines was confusing and the various boarding tiers were not announced properly (Delta One, Sky Priority, and Zone 1 were all together and Zone 2 started boarding way before the priority lane was finished)."
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Entertainment was outstanding and the food was very good. The service was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding takes too long"
Pros: "Free wine and spirits and food really not too bad in economy Very large movie and tv show library - something for everyone Friendly cabin crew"

Cons: "This flight was good"
Pros: "Liked the food, the crew were cheerful and helpful. Service was great."
Cons: "KLM staff at the AMS airport were not helpful. She insisted that our luggage weigh exactly 23kg. At 23.7, she had us go back to take things out with only 45 minutes to boarding. She was rude and unprofessional. Taking off and landing was a little rough. Entertainment on the plane was limited and a little outdated."
Pros: "The crew, the food, the amount of beverages served"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Entertainment, crew, food"
Cons: "The seats were a little tight for an international flight"
Pros: "The flight could not be have been nicer. Lovely crew!!!!"
Cons: ". The flight was overbooked and I had to wait for last minute to find out weather I will be on board of the flight .My bags were left behind in Amsterdam which were delivered later than they were supposed to."
Pros: "Good flight overall"
Cons: "Although I have priority status -The ground crew in Amsterdam gave me hard time with 7 extra Pounds, and I was trying to take it out of the suitcase to no avail. Eventually the agent I was checking in with got busy, I went to a new agent, and with a flick of a keyboard he approved the extra rate based on my status, without even have my to request it."
Cons: "No dairy free options!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival. Was also quite pleased with the food options available during such a long flight."
Pros: "I bought my ticket about 3 months ago. At my check-in at AMS they said that! DELTA now charges for the 1st bag. Total (unpleasant) surprise. Will I be charged on my RETUTN FLIGHT?"
Cons: "I bought my ticket about 3 months ago. At my check-in at AMS they said that! DELTA now charges for the 1st bag. Total (unpleasant) surprise. Will I be charged on my RETUTN FLIGHT?"

Cons: "Not a lot of family movie selection"
Pros: "Everything was Excellent"
Cons: "Excellent job and keep it up"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. Food and beverage service was excellent along with entertainment options."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "I was able to sleep!"
Cons: "Could not get comfort upgrade"
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Pros: "The airlines: KLM and Delta were great."
Cons: "The lines at TSA! Alng with hundreds of other people, we missed our connecting flight. I was ashamed to see such an awful mess in the US. It was like entering a third world country run by incompetents."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good, great crew, great food, great service"
Cons: "They should provide good hindi movies and songs in the flight"
Pros: "Nice service for short flight"
Cons: "Lost luggage for 2 days."
Cons: "This flight was on a Transavia codeshare with Delta and a real downer after coming from a Delta One business class segment. An uncontrolled mass boarding, crammed in seating, no amenities and charges for a drink of water made this a pretty crappy flight. The crew was nice though."
Cons: "As usual, a small space on a full flight. Pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class since my flight was overbooked and I had to miss my original flight"
Cons: "Security for traveling to US is a very time consuming with long lines and in my mind useless process which does not make me feel any more secure - just wasting time and resources."
Same reasons I mentioned before
I liked the apparent efficiency and organization of the boarding process and the in-flight service. The seats were extremely cramped. On a 10 hour flight, the closeness of the seats can become a bit unbearable. Otherwise, all was good. I was impressed with Air Canada. I'll be checking to see if they fly out of Saulte St. Marie.
Not to buckle and dime passengers with fees, check bag fee, aisle fee, etc. I paid for tixs with mileage plus business card and I should have gotten 1 free bag per person but was charged 30 per bag and they were small bags
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We were on the runway for one hour and Calgary was not notified so we could not make our connecting flight even though room on the plane. On the flight an hour later we were on the plane for three hours but the weather prevented takeoff. Now we are sleeping in the airport until 6 am. So I think communication needs to be improved"
Pros: "My luggage arrived 3 days after and stuff was stolen...."
Cons: "Maybe not steal passengers stuff?"
Pros: "My flight was canceled"
Pros: "Polite, helpful crew"
Cons: "Nothing, would recommend"
Cons: "Screen is slow and outdated. Easy upgrade from one class to another."
Pros: "Nice plane looks new"
Pros: "On time and all fine. Excellent service and good food."
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "Entertainment unit and comfort were standard 5/5 for both"
Cons: "Boarding a massive 777 is difficult but some how other airlines do it smoother. Not sure how boarding 3 zones at once makes sense, which created a long que. Plus a delayed plane didn’t help the matter Unnecessary comments by one crew member while passengers were putting away their luggage were over heard and provided no value to the situations. Cup of noodles and a 3 tiny pieces of beef plate were provided for dinner which was very disappointing. While a typical egg breakfast and snack were also provided. Hot beverages were generally not served due to turbulence and water service during the 12hr flight was minimal."
Pros: "considering all the delays, both in delay in leaving Amsterdam and holding pattern due to thunderstorms in Toronto all went well in a very long day."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flights"
Cons: "limited leg room"
Pros: "Great airline for food and service."
Cons: "For couples traveling in business Air Canada's seating is designed to de-couple by placing barriers between seats . They need to try Emerites to check out how a pod should work Entertainment is limited"
Cons: "They lost our luggage not only on the way to our destination but also on the way home both times in Toronto"
Pros: "Excellent fight.... comfortable and easy..."
Cons: "Crew where a bit slow... and the use of 4! Languages for announcement was annoying..."
Pros: "Great crew and helpers on the ground too! Loved the entertainment too! :)"
Pros: "Great crew and on schedule."
Cons: "One of the better flights I have taken no complaints."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Poor entertainment selection for such a long flight. Very little food for Sydney/ Vancouver leg and I am small eater."
Cons: "An international flight, yet no food, and had to purchase beverages and ear buds."
Pros: "A very pleasant 9-hour flight. Plenty of room and good entertainment."
Cons: "The lavatory sink was clogged. The audio to movies was inaudible, as though the picture was streaming and the audio was lost. The crew offered little assistance to a clearly frail elderly passenger who had a very difficult time rising from her seat and using the lavatory."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours, plane A/C not working. Waited for another plane. They tried to fix the first plane but they just delayed getting another plane."
Cons: "flight was booked as Lufthansa, but Lufthansa would not allow seat selection and air Canada would not recognize Lufthansa booking code, so we were stuck in middle seats for 8 hr & 5 hr flights on third section we in in very back of plane even though there were better seats available"
Cons: "The flight left almost 1 hour late because paperwork wasn't signed off"
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: "Carry on bags of 2 delayed seating of people"
Pros: "The food was really good. I was kind of shocked but each meal or snack I had was delicious and I especially liked that I could pre order special food according to my diet. The staff was friendly and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "the music channels were lame. I was bummed we did not have wifi in the plane and so I couldn't listen to good music the whole flight"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled then accommodations were extremely unorganized."
Pros: "Seat, pillow and blanket were clean. Flight arrived on time, luggage was intact and there were no issues boarding or de-boarding."
Cons: "Booked 4 months in advance - flew solo. Only window seat left was at the very back, near where the crew prepared everything. The entire flight was spent listening to them prepare meals, discuss their trip itinerary, shifts and how Air Canada treats them, as employees, so poorly. The crew were very short with most passengers and it seemed over staffed."
Cons: "They over sold the flight. Customer service was awful and the gate attendant was untrained. We were unable to board the plane."
Cons: "Air Canada lost my luggage, customer service was very vague and unhelpful, did not get my bag back for almost a week."
Pros: "The flight was late. The plane was overcrowded. N explanation given until we were on the plane. They boarded us then made us wait in the jetway for 15 or 20 minutes. No room in the seats whatsoever"
Cons: "Most everything! Unapologetic about delay and gate changes. Lousy boarding. Plane uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. The cabin was very comfortable to fly in although the headrests were unnecessary since a small pillow was provided. Thank you for the pillow and blanket - that made the night flight much more comfortable. The crew were all professional and friendly. I appreciated how quickly we boarded and exited the plane. The staff made this very quick and efficient."
Cons: "Every time the male attendant walked by he brushed his hand along the overhead luggage compartment. This woke me up from my sleep over a dozen times. It was fine once or twice but became very annoying. The zones at the gate were very crowded and too close together. They were also right beside the food vendors and made it nearly impossible for other people in the terminal to easily walk by. The seating area was overcrowded and had more seating with computer hookups than without. It was also not kept tidy. Compared to other airports this was by far the most disorganized and least clean."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Overall, it was a nice flight. The domestic and express flights had no food on offer (for free)..."
Cons: "Beyond the absurd 12 hour layover in Vancouver, upon my arrival in Atlanta, my luggage was lost. I'm still waiting on a call saying it was located."
Cons: "Ran out of salmon for meal"
Cons: "We were told there's issue in communicating to the engine and delayed for two hours or more. The staff provided updates periodically but it would be better if the issue could be prevented before boarding. Although it's not expected, I was pretty happy the seat on my left was empty on first plane. On the sub plane they arranged an overweighted guy on my left which made the delay worse as he threw off the strong smell of curry."
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff"
Cons: "Entertainment system is crappy and looks like it's from the 1990's. It needs a serious overhaul. I reserved windows seats and showed up to check and had been placed in the middle."
Cons: "The announcement about turbulence were to much. Could have been way more subtle or shorter"
Pros: "Safe landing"
Cons: "Service. French crew from Montreal. Rude at best. They were bothered to do anything. Awful service. Movies only via iPad with Air Canada app. Old movies. No free wine with dinner on international flight. Both luggage damaged and they do not cover it."
Pros: "boarding was quick, organized."
Cons: "my in-seat personal tv was broken. If there hadn't been other empty seats, I would have had to sit with no IFE the whole flight."
Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and multi-lingual. The food was fine and beverages were frequently offered. I live in Michigan, but flights from Windsor (via Toronto) to Europe are much less expensive, so well worth the drive over the border."
Cons: "This airline only allows for one free checked bag when flying internationally. The checked bag size is stringent (but at least travelers are notified about that several times when booking and paying on line. The movie options are limited, but still enough variety to find something to watch."
Pros: "For the most part all crews were courteous and friendly. Early boarding for a disabled person traveling with our family was problematic on each leg of the trip."
Cons: "Not being informed of the reasons for the delay of almost four hours in the Toronto to Amsterdam leg was a major disappointment. Legroom on both transatlantic legs was a problem as well."
Pros: "Never got on this flight. We were never given an email to self check in, and we're unable to board 45 mins before at the gate coming frim anotthe flight. They overbooked this flight & sold our tickets, and then told us we couldn't get on flight. Now we are out $2500 buying new tix!"
Cons: "All the above. A simple check in email would have averted this problem. All the other airlines do this. We were under the presumption that we had to check in at airport when we didn't get check-in notice. Furthermore, they sold our tickets, so we're down $2500 and they doubled their profit. It would be hard for me to say I will use Air Canada or kayak in the future."
Pros: "Long, but uneventful flight."
Pros: "The crew was great as usual, and I always enjoy the unique selection of international film in the entertainment system."
Cons: "That old plane was VERY drafty around the emergency exit. I can't remember ever feeling cold on a plane. Usually it's the opposite. But here was a consistent stream of ice cold air leaking through the airframe around the emergency exit. It was cold enough that I had to put several layers of blankets up on the wall and lean against them all the way home. In addition, my seat was so "well-used" that it provided very little support and often felt as though I was sitting on a bench. Not a pleasant experience."
