Took a 60 min flight to have no crew assist us to the gate and wait on the plane for over an hour!
3 hour delay. Wasn’t notified before arriving at the airport. Mass boarding not by zones.
Pros: "Was given a quick connection paper which helped expedite things. Customs was fairly quick but got some mixed messages from airport staff as to which line(s) to go in. Fairly smooth process and very glad I travel with only a carryon. Getting my bags would have been a real rush. Entertainment available on smartphone, iPad or lap top."
Cons: "It was a tight transfer to get from one flight to another. Had to take a bus from the tarmac and then walk all the way to terminal two to check in with westjet and then back to terminal three to board after going through customs. Had time for a bathroom break and that was it."
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to be extra helpful and accommodating, helped us reorganize seats to put our family together"
Pros: "The crew were nice!"
Cons: "But this was like flying in an antique from the 20th century. No screens, AC not working well, tiny cabin. One of the bathrooms didn’t even have a sink."
Cons: "Cancelled flight , partie of 5 No reason given Had to stay 1 more night in Vegas or 24 hours in Toronto There better refound me for extra meals and hotels rooms ... about 900$ extra expenses because of all that"
Pros: "Unreal service by all WJ employees. Great service getting my 87 year old mom to and from everything."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and organized. The airport functions really well and the staff is very pleasant"
Cons: "Wish the movie selection had more recent variety! Lots to choose from but I found many were a mix of older movies"
Pros: "Safety and on time."
Cons: "Grumpy cabin crew."
Pros: "Flight was only delayed 20 minutes."
Cons: "I miss the wedding party I was the bridesmaid"
Pros: "Staff was good."
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hr, no coffee or tea. Food choices very limited"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Pros: "Flight steward did a good job explaining safety procedure for exit door"
Cons: "One hour and ten minutes late. Arriving after midnight with one notification of a 30 minute delay not 70."
Pros: "The flight attendant and my Plus seat were great. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Satellite news. I would like to see Fox News as an option."
Pros: "trip was fairly smooth, flight was on time. Crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Trying to carry travel on luggage up the aisles is very awkward when the plane is already full or half full of people. seating should be done in a bit more order. back 5 rows, next 5 etc. Crew should have a better knowledge of the land masses flying over."
Pros: "service was excellent. Very cheerfull staff."
Cons: "happy employees and very helpfull"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Internet was poor, my movie kept stopping and restarting."
Pros: "I fell asleep the second I sat down in my seat and buckled my seat belt, so I don’t remember anything about the flight except landing, and for me, that’s a great flight!"
Pros: "The efficiency of boarding and de-icing, seating.arrangements and on time arrival plane was clean and my.tomato.juice was cold and delicious."
Cons: "The stewardess (Stephanie was her name I think) grabbed my arm and pushed it out of her way rather than asking me to move. While it may sound dramatic, I am certainly not accustomed to a stranger putting their hands on me and it was hugely inappropriate and ruined my flight. This was my first WestJet flight after flying countless times with Air Canada. The whole experience was soured and I will never look at WestJet the same again."
Pros: "Crew was lovely. Super funny and cool"
Cons: "No onboard movies etc. But it is a smaller plane so I guess it makes sense"
Pros: "The friendly crew."
Cons: "Crowded seating. Canceled flight. Moved to a much later flight and that one was late taking off. Use to like flying West Jet when it started flying to Canada. Not so much now. Scheduling is getting worse. Are you canceling flights because they are not full planes?"
Pros: "Friendly Staff Flight delayed departing but pilot made up the time ."
Cons: "Lots of delays on different flights for members of our party flying from various points in US to Calgary and on returns. Several folks had damage to their luggage, including wheels torn off of baggage and a cracked ski helmet."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and professional; the flight was safe--by far the top priority!"
Cons: "The plane needed a jump start before we could leave Vancouver (this was during daytime, sunny skies, about +1°C), which didn't inspire confidence in the plane's airworthiness and which delayed our departure by almost an hour. But evidently the crew followed the required procedure and we arrived safely in Calgary. Better to be a bit late than to have an unsafe flight."
Pros: "I have noticed the new seat on the plane which is great."
Cons: "The seat assignment for four of us considering we come early for checked in."
Pros: "The boarding process wasn't to bad"
Cons: "The crew did not ask if we wanted a snack. I had cranberry juice and thencupnwas barely full. Crew did not ask if I wanted a snack or even offer d a snack. . Yet the people behind me was asked if they wanted a snack. Rude ."
Pros: "Fantastic flight!"
Cons: "Generally announcemect is too fast and not clear, especially the boarding anouncement regarding the order of boarding is not clear. Please be more considerate for the aged and hard of hearing, infrequent traveller."
Pros: "It was on time. Quick to board."
Cons: "I’m used to entertainment."
Pros: "Good service easy boarding luggage came out as soon as we were off the plane when you are on vacation last thing you need is to wait for your bags great job all around"
Pros: "I am mute and the staff did a good job of understanding that and accommodating the way I communicate. (still wish more staff knew American Sign Language; that remains the best flight ever)"
Pros: "Flight was great! Just a bit slow on boarding, that ok , I understand. Out of Hamilton but better than Toronto."
Cons: "Arriving at Orlando, Real confusing and I'm not really old yet. Good thing we had people to meet us, I had no idea where to go."
Pros: "Great experience...."
Cons: "There were wait times...too long"
Pros: "Great leg room, flight was on time. Flight attendants were super nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor management and customer service."
Pros: "Great crew, West jet connect worked fabulously"
Cons: "Cramped space and airplane food"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Pros: "It was quick and efficient"
Cons: "You had to have a computer / cell phone to see the movies. In their next fleet of aircraft Westjet should go back to big screens or back of seat screens and have the computer option there as well."
Cons: "We had a connecting flight through Toronto to Vancouver. First the flight was deleted from Charlotte resulting in a missed connection. In Toronto the WestJet agent directed us back to the Departure counter which required us to go back through security. There was three gate changes and the flight to Vancouver was late. Our transit to the hotel was closed resulting in an extra expense with taxi fares. Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "One can get free beer or wine but no tomato juice?"
Cons: "No delay. Seats were horribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing. As sucks."
Cons: "Planes auck. Terminal suxks."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Cons: "Checking at Oklahoma City was a bit chaotic. There were not enough monitors to check in so a long line ensued. Then bags were stacked all over the place making one wonder if your bags would get on the flight. Not good."
Cons: "The explanation for why the flight experienced so many delays wasn't given. The flight was clearly overbooked and the organization of the crew while boarding the plane was poor."
Cons: "I had little leg room"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"
Cons: "AA has a tendency of delaying flights."
Cons: "Delayed more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Delayed rerouted delayed again horrible airline this is why I stopped flying American"
Cons: "The wifi was out so I was unable to do what I needed to do and I was unable to stream music"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable main cabin."
Cons: "Lead flight attendant too casual. Didn’t wear jacket, didn’t even know he was a member of the crew until he walked the aisles mid flight. Wore Bluetooth headset around his neck. Inflight WiFi entertainment didn’t work at all. Internet (AA.com) seemed to function."
Cons: "that my flight got cancelled and wasn't going out until Saturday and I would have been less than 24 hrs in Boston"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great, plane was comfortable and clean"
Cons: "No WiFi, it was delayed, bags came off a different belt so we didn’t find them for 30 minutes... but at least we found them"
Cons: "Paid for gogoinflight, then is had a big error red screen, that said keep trying back in a few minutes. Never worked. Was not happy. Long flight."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."
Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice and kept us updated."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 minutes early and we still deboarded 20 minutes LATE. Wifi on flight is ten dollars instead of being free and they use plastic cups for the drinks which I am sure is not recycled."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing was good about this flight."
Cons: "An 8 hour delay to get from DFW to DC, after an 18 hour flight from Sydney. No one knew where the plane was and the delay changed from 3 hours, to 5 hours to finally 8 hours. The former, refitted United Airlines plane, with no frills, no electric outlets, uncomfortable seats, and the joke that is the "recline" position."
Cons: "American is always delayed, every single flight."
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Pros: "Liked the plane which looks new and the entreteinment was good too"
Cons: "Didn’t like the crew wasn’t nice and the snacks are always terrible"
Cons: "They lost our luggage even though we have 50 minutes between connecting flights."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent"
Pros: "Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served."
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "Have not travelled AA in a long time due to my disappointed but today's flight changed my opinion. Was impressed with every thing except that 1 cookie and a cup of water. Not a deterrent though"
Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."
Cons: "I wasn't able to fly Alaska Airlines due to storm in Washington DC. My first flight American Airlines from Charlotte to Washington DC was cancelled. The second flight Alaska Airlines from Washington DC to Portland was delayed, but I never flew. I got a direct flight from American Airlines from Charlotte to Portland instead."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Pros: "Ground delay but we still got there in time and I made a close connectionshort flight"
Cons: "Flight from Miami last night was delayed 3.5 hours (which was a 9:30pm departure to 12:30am departure) There was horrible weather that prevented the Flight captain to arrive on time for our flight. (he was en route from NYC to MIA). But instead of providing accommodations, the times changed and then they boarded us on the plane where we proceeded to wait almost an hour on the plane before take off. Arrived at DCA at 3 am....not a goo start to a work week."
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "General professionalism of crew"
Cons: "Food selection was poor, small quantity, and bad value. Online boarding pass didn't work for return flight first time, but worked a second time."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "The flight was quick and efficient. Got lucky with nobody in my row. The passengers were always informed of any info and we landed on time. A very positive experience."
Cons: "While I can't cite anything specific...the flight attendants seemed a bit off putting. While they did everything they were supposed to do, I sensed a bit of an attitude. Also, they only offered food service on request because it was a short flight. Why not give the chance for a refreshment or two. I know they want to save on costs but man...I'd almost rather fly on a foreign airline. They go above and beyond customer service. I'm just nitpicking here. It was pretty good overall."
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"
Cons: "I didn't like how we were 20 minutes early yet after 1.5 hours of sitting on the Tarmac that I missed my connection by a few minutes. I wish the crew hadn't falsely informed the passengers onboard that the other planes would be delayed with the communication issue @ Reagan (DC)."
Cons: "Worse experience ever."
Pros: "Due to an earlier late flight, missed my connection, so this flight was just 2 hours later and not too inconvenient. I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Was very hot before takeoff"
Cons: "Was initially told there would be a 2 hour delay because of weather, as the sun beamed down and announced this 2 minutes prior to boarding. Ticket agent at the gate desk was less then helpful, " I don't know what to tell you Sir""
Pros: "The American Airlines crew was very friendly but completely clueless about the details of the delay, our connection and the connecting airport."
Cons: "The American Airlines staff assured us that if we got stuck in DC we would receive hotel vouchers. Not only did we not receive hotel vouchers but we were denied access to our rescheduled flight the next day and forced to rent a car to get us from DC to Massachusetts in time for our event. This "misunderstanding" cost us 2 days of our trip and an additional $500 all together. I have never been more disappointed by an airline in all my years of travel! If we'd been told the truth from the beginning we would of rescheduled the flight for the following day from our original destination and saved ourselves 2 headaches and a ton of money."
Entertainment system didn’t work.
Lost one of our bags after the debacle in Toronto. Utterly useless.
Pros: "Indifferent crew and confused/disorganised service!"
Cons: "Crew needs to be more engaging and helpful..."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were ok. Not happy I missed the next connecting flight"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Pros: "It was comfirtable"
Cons: "They charged you for earphones. On our flight to St. John’s they didn’t charge for earphones. The flight from Toronto to St. John’s was delayed almost 4 hours because a deicing machine guy thought he saw a blemish on the tail of the plane. After that we went to maintenance, after that our flight crew timed out and we went back to the gate, deplaned and waited. Then we got back on THE SAME PLANE and never arrived until 8pm. We should’ve been there at 3pm and lost almost 1/2 a day of our vacation. I will never take this airline again!!!!!"
Pros: "There seems to have been improvements to the check in and boarding for disabled disabled passengers like myself at Pearson. Much easier to drop off luggage and move quickly to the wheelchair pickup area. Staff were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Spacing between seats continues to be a problem especially for disabled clients. Because I was travelling alone, I was asked if I would move to accommodate someone with a pet carrier that would not fit under the seat they were in. I declined but wondered how they were allowed to board with an oversized case. Also seemed strange to ask a disabled passenger to move."
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."
Cons: "7:05am Flight got cancelled and they saw fit to rebook us on a 20:30pm flight.. decided to reroute us to anotjer city in canada and down to a different airport in DC Lost my luggage from time i checked it it at 0500am yo time dflight was cancelled and rebooked at 0700. And to fike claim and travrl without jt. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "I like that they are Canadian"
Cons: "I don't like how unhelpful they are, their food, their staff, the way they treat clients etc. Seriously my least favourite company to fly with. I'd rather pay extra and fly WestJet anyday!"
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Cons: "The food was,nt S-o good,I requested chicken, that was'nt enough for all pasangers and I got pasta that had only tomato n-o parmegiano or cheese. At breakfest only banana bread that was very sweet, S-o I was desapointed. The chair in front of me was leaning on me because îți was broken The selecțion for movies on TV screen was very dificultate as the cursor didn't! responded to my movements"
Pros: "Air Canada is great"
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "WAY too hot."
Pros: "Loved the direct flight! Landed ahead of schedule which facilitated my workday."
Pros: "On time flight . Flight attendants are polite"
Pros: "The price was outstanding. The entertainment was excellent. Staff very friendly"
Cons: "Food was really bad. I mean we left France and that's the good capital of the world, but none of it made into the plane."
Pros: "The ease and access to a fare quickly makes this app amazing, Air Canada was not the cheapest but was the easiest route, they still need to be better priced"
Pros: "They afford a civil and enhanced trip on an Express flight. Something AA and other airlines consistently fail to do."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, considering there were just over two hundred passengers to manage. The crew was excellent: responsive, courteous and proactive. Entertainment: Overall plenty of options though some were dated. Food: surprisingly good, and COMPLIMENTARY. Didn't have to pay extra."
Cons: "Coach is CRAMPED. And on a 14-hour flight, that's important.."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but overall trip was good"
Pros: "The plane was clean and fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for no apparent reason. We were not told of this delay until 45 minutes after boarding time was supposed to begin. Good communication would have helped with this issue."
Pros: "I found the crew in this flight very accommodating and pleasant......"
Cons: "There was only one snack option and I couldn't eat it because it contained gluten."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Announcement was made at the last minute. There wasn't enough space for carry-on luggage, mostly because the flight crew let people hog space leaving less for everybody else."
Pros: "Easy flight to DC."
Cons: "First time at Pearson Airport needed some help finding my way around the airport"
Pros: "Free movies and t.v. Friendly flight attendants On time flight and when delayed, everyone is very responsive about moving as quickly as possible. The ticket agents are much friendlier than other airlines"
Cons: "In a 2 hour 20 min flight, the flight attendant finally asked me for something to drink with only 45 min left in the flight. Why was only one person serving the whole plane? Also, we should be offered at least a complimentary snack of pretzels/peanuts. Lastly, the carry-on luggage "sizer" at the counter is way too small. My carry-on that I take with me all of the time didn't fit. But when I was able to take it on without using the sizer, it fit just fine."
Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Cons: "Personal movies had horrid sound"
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
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: "Absolutely nothing! Terrible service."
Cons: "I paid for a flight on a Lufthansa plane, not an Air Canada plane. There was a two hour delay on the flight that I was not informed about. There was also no organization for boarding the plane, and you had two flights going to the same place boarding at the same time."
Pros: "Efficient flight got us there on time."
Cons: "Food was expensive."
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to washington"
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for more than 3 hours and there was not even a drink offered for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great with children."
Cons: "Multiple confusing security processes at airport. Huge lines. Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled and no alternative arrangements made Worst thing the guy at front desk did not even announce the cancellation and subsequent impact Poor customer service"
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Left late so missed connection. Was put up in a mediocre hotel."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great complimentary entertainment."
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: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."
Pros: "Terrible, only one spot open, long lines. We missed boarding and were forced to wait 4 hours after already 10 hours travel. No help and no mercy at the custom area."
Cons: "Use all airport customs agent's desks after a large plane arrivals."
