Cons: "In Seattle, the boarding process was chaotic and mismanaged.

Pros: "Everything went really smooth, including the flight - hardly any bumps at all. Loved the free movie selection and the free messaging connectivity."

Pros: "Complimentary alcohol was nice for a long flight"
Pros: "Nice leg room."
Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"
Pros: "UPBEAT flight attendants, helpful, courteous. Front check in staff was great. But they were unable to fix my wife's problem."
Cons: "Seating poor, leg room, hip room etc. Person in seat in front of me leaned there seat back 2-3 inches. There wasn't enough room to read my book. Everything else was satisfactory."

Pros: "chech in crew and flight from Phoenix was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane from Seattle to Edmonton was confotable."
Pros: "Love Alaska airlines!"

The flight itself was great. The captain explained a lot about where we were and what to look for out the window. Flight attendants were great so is the plane. Thank you, I will be flying with alaska again. I'm partial to boeing aircraft. Retired Boeing employee. Ed.."
Pros: "Spacious and comfortable Boeing 737-900 which was not over-booked. Lots of room and efficient boarding process. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Flew Frontier on the way to my destination and Alaska on the way home, the difference was night and day. Everything was better, the seats were comfier, the tray table was larger, there was a wifi option, complimentary food and drink, much more professional staff, even the plane noise was much quieter and to top everything off we got home over 30 minutes earlier than expected. Alaska is definitely my new preference."
Pros: "I really like Alaska Airlines overall. Their planes are newer, have power outlets at every seat and the oversize luggage compartment make it easier for everyone to fit with their carry on bags. Way more comfortable than their main competitor at our little airport."
Cons: "I got a notice to check in the day before my flight, which is fine except that they had completely changed my flight to a different one with no prior notice. I searched through my email after I got home in case I missed it, but couldn't find anything. I would have appreciated a bit better communication."
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Pros: "Easy flight. No issues."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "I loved the people I met during my flight. Great conversations. I also loved charging my phone during my flight."

Cons: "kayak never sent a precheck email, app told me i was flying american. went to american, no flight. they told me to go to alaska air, a tram ride and a 10 minute walk. could have missed my flight if running late. the app needs to say which airline to go to, i don't care who the flight was booked thru. huge hassle, wasn't happy."

Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Delta scheduled us a connection with only 35 min of layover. We had to go from Concourse E to A and the plane was several min late.We barely made it before the gate closed 10 min before pushback."
Pros: "New airplanes.On time schedule .Very professional a"
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"

Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"
Pros: "If you're willing to pay the upgrade, the entertainment system and ear buds should be in working order! Seats still uncomfortably narrow and audio system on plane should be audible!"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm throughout the three hour flight."
Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"

Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "Smooth. Fast."
Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."
Pros: "One of the male flight attendants was very nice"

Pros: "Boarding was easy and fast"
Cons: "Seats were cramped"
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."
Pros: "Nothing to like.."
Cons: "Everything about the flight..."
Pros: "Booked as Delta but flew WestJet. Crew was amazing!"

Pros: "Smooth, nice flight. Excellence service, they tried to make up for the late pioltes, allowing to broad befriend they arrived."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, because the pilots were late. Not only was it delayed over an hour, but the flight itself was postponed twice because they knew they had a problem with scheduling."

Pros: "Boarding was Ok Full plane, which makes a difference"
Cons: "Was there an entertainment progress? One trip for rood and drinks. Delay in boarding, which the crew made up."
Pros: "I enjoyed the WestJet app for movies. Really great for me and my daughter. Also the McDonald’s coffee ✅"
Cons: "We sat across an aisle150 feet from the boarding gate and never heard any pre-boarding announcements. There is too much carry-on luggage, coats and backpacks in the overhead bins. No room left if boarding near the end."
Cons: "the 3 hr security line up"
Pros: "JP the flight attendant was great"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process Too warm"
Pros: "the westjet app is great. however the flight home did not have it.."
Cons: "on our westjet to Puerto Vallarta the air conditioning vent above my brother's seat dripped all over him. on the trip back the screen on the back of the seat in front of my other brother didn't work so we had to share. not terrible, but a little annoying considering the amount we pay for tickets."
Pros: "Excellent. Again staff was very courteous and caring. Smooth comfortable flight all the way."
Pros: "On time, arrived even half an hour early on the way back. Staff in flight and checking in at YVR amazing. Overall, good spacing for knees between rows, staff awesome, flight on time sharp... great experience so far!"
Cons: "Staff at checking in kiosk at LAS wasn't so friendly."
Pros: "Overall everything"
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Westjet staff are consistently *way* friendlier than Air Canada"
Cons: "-Inbound flight arrived late, our flight departed even later. Not the staff's fault that two separate parties had ID/security issues, but I've seen staff at other airports walk along the line and review ID before boarding starts and it prevents those issues from delaying the flight. -Short flight = crappy snacks. Nacho sticks or dry coffee cookies, both pretty unpalatable."
Pros: "Pleasant flight food and entertainment no used crew helpful and courteous comfort ... seats too close as always but plenty of bin space due to them asking people to check carry on luggage for free ...great idea"
Pros: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"
Cons: "no vegan options on the plain no tv screens"
Pros: "Stayed patient with the large, young group aboard. Didn't let that stress bleed over to other passengers"
Pros: "Kayak is cool. Westjet is meh."

Pros: "Direct flight from my hometown of Palm Springs Ca to Vancouver Canada"
Cons: "Left late and I arrived 35 min late had to go through customs and didn't make it from international to domestic. Rebooked a flight 3 hours later for $75."
Pros: "Crew was excellent especially Taylor"
Cons: "This flight is always late to leave and always gate changes. Maybe the time should be permanently changed. I have caught this flight 3 times and each time the same issue"
Pros: "Soft voice of flight attendants with such an early flight."
Cons: "Paying for food. Paying for luggage. Movies in a loop, not on demand. Missed beginnings of all movies I watched."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."

Pros: "The staff were very kind while still being efficient. It was a pleasant and smooth flight."
Pros: "It was fast, friendly and over all made me impressed."
Pros: "Smooth, cost effective and friendly staff."
Cons: "The seats are appropriately spaced but still too narrow for anyone with shoulders. Friendly and helpful flight staff."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not so much entertainment like music or movies to watch. Why do you need to download the west jet apps just to get something to watch doesn't make any sense..."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you paid for wifi, but with a less than two hour flight the price was rediculous. There was no food or drink, other than water or coffee, unless you wanted to pay almost $2 for a mini can of pop."
Cons: "Even though it is a short flight, it would be nice to see a movie and not have to pay for it. I downloaded the Westjet App and started watching the movie, before take-off, while there was still internet access. Once the flight took off, you had to pay to view the movie from the App. Silly!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was shipshape and organized. Every crew membe r we talked with seemed knowledgeable and friendly. Good value."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Hour+ delay"
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."
Pros: "The lead crew member was extremely positive and apologetic and at the same time he was very entertaining whenever usually-boring announcements were made to the passengers."
Cons: "It sucks that the crew had to deal with so many angry passengers after we were stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours and in the gate for 1 hour, with a total delay of 3 hours, causing many other passengers to miss their connections. That said, the crew did their best to remain positive and accommodating."
Cons: "6 hours delay"
Pros: "The flight was pretty good specially during landing"
Pros: "Check-in agent in Kelowna was nice as were gate agents. The seats were fine even though we were in the back of the small plane. Flying in and out of Kelowna brought back memories of flights long ago: no jet ways and prop planes. It was nice they had a ramp rather than stairs."
Cons: "Short flight so only water to drink and pretzels or cookies if desired."
Pros: "On time, smooth and amazing views of snow capped mountains."
Pros: "Great service! Crew was very friendly and happy. Flight was online and landed early"
Cons: "No screen on the back of the chairs"
Cons: "Was too hot"
Cons: "we didnt have an eta number to check in our flight on time. The front desk staff iwas so nice and helpful to rebook a later flight for us without having us to pay extra."
Pros: "When I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to AA failure at the gate. The woman at the westjet gate was super friendly and kind to me. She gave me a good seat and meal vouchers to get me through the night. Unlike AA who could not care less."
Cons: "I missed my flight but that not your fault."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Loading plane was a little chaotic and the comfortable seat was a little overpriced for the legroom."
Cons: "American Airlines lost our luggage and both flights were late, wife her cell phone and credit cards due to running in airport to catch our flight to Lisbon. Not impressed."
Pros: "Short connection times"
Cons: "Being on time because of short connection time"
Pros: "Friendly crew and relatively new entertainment system"
Cons: "- Seats are very tight - Pay for luggage even on a transatlantic flight and your seat (if you want to choose) - Food was below average - even for airline standards, ran out of drink options even for dinner (the second time they serve drinks)"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."
Pros: "Excellent and original Japanese foods"
Pros: "Actually assigned a middle seat, unable to change it but found that there was nobody else in that row!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "It was hastle free"
Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Pros: "The cabin crew bent over backwards to help."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"
Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "Flight was changed. Didn't get the seats I had already picked out. Woman on flight was very rude to me when I asked where the restroom was. NOT a good experience over all."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me ＄50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Cons: "The seats are terrible. On the first leg I couldn't use the back of the seat. Four hours hunched over in a tiny space is not fun."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Limited snack options."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Cons: "3 gate changes 2+ hours delayed leaving PHX"
Pros: "More available leg room on aisle seat."
Cons: "The lady at the ticket counter was very rude and not helpful at all. Never flown American before. We're told to get our seats at the counter. She was very unhelpful!!"
Cons: "The plane was very old, the crew was unprofessional and further only provided drink service once in 4 hours. It was mass chaos boarding because the flight that landed was late as well."
Cons: "this flight was canceled"
Pros: "Easy gates, boarding, nice flight crew.. it was a fantastic experience"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "American Airlines left us more than 3 hours inside the plane at the gate to cancel the flight afterwards. They said it was a mechanical problem, and then told us it was just fixed and that they were just waiting for paperwork to be on our way. 3 hours later they decide to cancel the flight. Crappy communication with travelers, terrible attention at the counter to try to make new arrangements. Not a single American Airlines representative in customs to give orientation to the travelers having to go through the whole thing after the flight was cancelled. In summary, an epic mess. Will avoid AA when possible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "The auxiliary power unit on our Airbus 321 (the engine in the tail of the plane) was not working, so the air conditioning vents were non-operational before takeoff, and the engines had to be started by an additional device at the airport. Not the greatest way to start a trip. I know there are tolerances that allow flights with certain broken parts, but auxiliary power on a flight starting in the Southwest United States seems important. Also, the Gogo in-flight WiFi was not working. I am a T-Mobile customer, so it should have been free, but I never got more than Google's home page to load, so I watched a movie on my iPad instead. I wasn't expecting the WiFi, so I flew fine without it. But, for it not to work after they announced it was available was a little disappointing. The "new" American Airlines seems worse, to me."
Pros: "Nothing good about this flight"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay caused a missed appointment in Tacoma"
Pros: "Upgraded to First class Crew turned the cabin lights off while taxiing out for takeoff"
Cons: "No entertainment The Chatty Cathy in the next row that wouldn't shut up."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The flight crew acted like they hated being there."
Pros: "Crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Ground crew were unfriendly and disorganized. Aircraft was old and cramped."
Pros: "Good electronic pass. Quick and easy. Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The delay in boarding trying to switch people around!! No food except to high price purchase."
Cons: "We didn't make the connection because of American's incompetence on our previous flt. of Hermosillo to Phoenix."
Pros: "Being number one on the upgrade list at boarding, I appreciated being upgraded to first class as an Executive Platinum member."
Cons: "The pilot provided no departure or arrival information; he simply said cabin crew take your places for take off, and on arrival, he simply said the aircraft was one hundred miles from landing in twenty minutes with no other details enroute."
Cons: "I am a platinum member. My bag was 5 lbs over weight. I had to take items out of the suitcase and put them in my carry-on!! They weighed my suitcase and even make me take 1 lb out because the scale was 51 lbs, instead of 50! Furthermore, the flight was half empty. Then I had one extra package that I wanted to check. I was told to take it as a carry-on. I told them I thought it was too large. They disagreed. In any event, I took the package to security and was told it was too large! I am really disappointed in the service and am hoping this is not because American Airlines is now running US airways."
Pros: "Flight operated on time and safely"
Cons: "First class flight attendant did not recognize me by name or as an Executive Platinum member; aircraft window screen next to seat 1A was inoperative; pilots provided minimal communications and were very uninformative."
Pros: "The operations once my husband and I arrived to Phoenix Airport were absolutely horrible and caused us to miss our connecting flight home to San Diego. Our luggage took a long time to come out, then we had to stay in a 45 minute line to get through Customs, even though we didn't have anything to claim. After that, we then had to stay in another hour and a half line to get through TSA. The whole time, we kept trying to explain to the different airport staff that we had a connecting flight that we needed to catch, however nothing was being done by any of the parties to ensure that we would make it to our connecting flight. All parties (Customs, TSA, & American Airlines) just kept trying to pass the blame to each other instead of helping us and were rude on top of that. The delays were out of our control causing us to not only miss our flight, but also caused us to have to spend more money to stay at a hotel in Phoenix since the next flight available was not until the morning. This situation has also caused both my husband and me to miss work, causing us to miss out on today's wages. This entire situation has been the worst airport experience we've ever had, and we've traveled all over the world. We usually fly with American Airlines, and would hate to have to go with another airline, but we would have to if this situation is not rectified, and if we are not compensated for all of the additional costs imposed on us."
Cons: "The operations once my husband and I arrived to Phoenix Airport were absolutely horrible and caused us to miss our connecting flight home to San Diego. Our luggage took a long time to come out, then we had to stay in a 45 minute line to get through Customs, even though we didn't have anything to claim. After that, we then had to stay in another hour and a half line to get through TSA. The whole time, we kept trying to explain to the different airport staff that we had a connecting flight that we needed to catch, however nothing was being done by any of the parties to ensure that we would make it to our connecting flight. All parties (Customs, TSA, & American Airlines) just kept trying to pass the blame to each other instead of helping us and were rude on top of that. The delays were out of our control causing us to not only miss our flight, but also caused us to have to spend more money to stay at a hotel in Phoenix since the next flight available was not until the morning.

Pros: "Flight late due to discovery of radio not working just before flight departure. My seats had less room than seate in front of me and it would not recline leaving me an unacceptable amount of space."
Cons: "It got to Hawaii and my bags also made it. Since flight was late I could not get my rental car costing me more money."
Cons: "We travel to Kauai every year with 3 little kids and every year the crew runs out of food. On a 7 hour flight, there should be food or snacks available for purchase of you are past the first 5 rows"
Cons: "Rude staff , flight was delayed, child sitting next to me kept kicking me and his mother wouldn't say anything to him staff also didn't do anything."
Pros: "We did finally get to our destination."
Cons: "Late flights, missed connection, no ground service"
Cons: "The flight from Phoenix to Vancouver was good except for the poor wifi when we were connected to the air canada wifi. Since there is no mini TVs on the back of the seats, you have to connect to their wifi to access shows and movies from your own device which is fine if it works. Tried to watch a movie which had huge problems connecting and the loading signal was on for a large amount of time. Once it had connected to the movie, it had restarted to the beginning about 25 times during watching it. Very disappointing and made it very unenjoyable. Also, right after we boarded, the pilot went on the intercom to tell us the ground crew had a gas spill and had to take extra time to clean it up which led us to sit on the plane for an extra 45 minutes and that led us to miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "Entertainment choices limited compared to the past. Very few recent releases (they now have "new to Air Canada" releases and they can be decades old"
Pros: "They had vegan options if you called ahead which was a nice and the flight crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "There was not enough space unless you sat in the front row."
Cons: "Poor Customer service! My baggage arrived later on the same day I had arrived..., but I didnlt get it till 2 days later. There were or apology or announcement about the reason of my flight delay (2 hrs). I was told by a customer rep on the phone a few days before ny flight that I didn't need eTA to transit, but I needed it! I had to obtain it at the airport counter on the day of my flight.. I was very close to miss my flight.... Due to the delay, many customers missed connection flights, but there was no clear guidance to where to take care of the matter... I was ery disappointed.."
Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."
Pros: "I love the new Boeing 787 planes! This was the smoothest flight ever, both from Vancouver to Tokyo and back again. The new planes have the dimmable windows, which are so cool! And, each seat has it's own screen with free movies, TV, flight info, etc. Also, the flights were on time!"
Pros: "One of the most spacious flight experiences I've ever had, enough room to stretch out for my 6 foot self. My checked luggage arrived safe and sound when I landed in Vancouver."
Cons: "On my 5 hour flight from Toronto the air Canada rouge website wouldn't work on my laptop despite troubleshooting many times. I was connected to the wifi... but didn't gain access to the website. I would've liked to eat on the plane but having to pay $7+ for a sandwich alone isn't something I'm interested in. It would be nice to at least get a free snack while flying across Canada. Oh well, I guess I'll starve."
Pros: "Food and cocktails included alongwith entertainment"
Cons: "Hour late .. departure delayed ..pilots caught in traffic"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "Premium Economy seats didn't have leg rests"
Pros: "Inexpensive flight, good connections, decent food, and professional and friendly flight attendants and service."
Pros: "Cordial service."
Cons: "Seemed understaffed to serve customers quickly on a short flight"
Pros: "Helpful and considerate staff when my friend was sick"
Cons: "The delays to leaving the airplane port."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very economical; bland minimal food; no complimentary wine. Flew with Air NZ to auckland in April; food and wine offered throughout flight. Flight attendants didn't smile or engage with passengers; treated service like a job they had to do"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delayed, did not leave Vancouver until after we were supposed to land in Portland. No tv or wifi"
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Dallas due to crew members arrived late."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for several hours, while the crew assured us it was on the way. When it landed they still said it was being prepped. Then at 10pm or so, they said it was cancelled. Then we waited another hour and a half to speak to representatives and get our hotels. Then another hour to the hotel to go to sleep. Because I had to be back at the airport in 7 hours to catch the next flight. It would have taken me 2 hours to drive to Seattle from Vancouver."
Pros: "Wonderful staff and service! I was very comfortable on the larger airplane so I didn't feel anxious. Excellent ratings on everything for Air Canada!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "Overall service & friendliness"
Cons: "I only had one gripe about this flight and my one other flight on Air Canada Rouge; the overhead bins are very poorly designed. I purchased a carry on bag specifically to meet their regs, yet it had it go in the bin longways, taking up a ton of room. The bins are tall, which is wasted space, when what they really need is another 1-2" in depth."
Pros: "Inexpensive, got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "All food and headphones cost extra on a 6 hour international flight."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "nice lie flat beds."
Cons: "it was all good."
Pros: "The comfort was much better than I expected from an airbus a320 and even though the in seat system was slow it was nice that there was option on a short regional flight."
Cons: "It would be nice if there was at least a snack boarding was a little chaotic. They should use the PA system."
Pros: "The staff and service were excellent!"
Pros: "Treated well and basically enjoyable flight, which is saying something on an eleven hour flight."
Cons: "On the return flight we arrived an hour late, and though we were told that they were holding our connecting flight, it left on time, five minutes before we got to the gate."
Cons: "Food was purchase only."
Cons: "One of my three flights was unnecessarily delayed by two hours, enough that I missed my last connection and had to stay overnight in Vancouver. There were no technical complications or weather complications. It was simply because something had been misscheduled and the flight crew needed a longer rest time between flights. This is completely avoidable, and the attendent who checked me in even said so. While the hotel and shuttle were paid for, Air Canada only gave me a $7 breakfast voucher, which was only redeemable at the hotel's measly breakfast counter rather than anywhere in the airport. For the unnecessary delays I had to deal with, i should had received more credit. This was an utterly disappointing travel experience."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. Entertainment system was also mediocre which keep shutting down and have to again select your movie and forward it :("
Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "Once again, they were late which meant that we missed our connection in Vancouver and had to overnight there."
Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."
Pros: "Everything was solid."
Cons: "There was no WI-FI which was inconvenient. The crew was good...could have been nicer on the way from Newark to Vancouver."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable seats with enough leg room."
Cons: "Cold air blowing on our seats that apparently could not be turned off - we asked twice. Very crowded in terminal with several flights boarding at same time, didnt know when we were being called up and didnt know which line to be in- very confusing"
Pros: "Everything went well with this trip home, the service was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. A real improvement from earlier Air Canada flights. Flights left on time, a bonus."
Cons: "Poor entertainment selection for such a long flight. Very little food for Sydney/ Vancouver leg and I am small eater."
Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The food was amazing! The quality and the freshness, please continue serving Korean food on the flight!"
Cons: "I was NEVER TOLD I would need a transit visa to fly through Canada. I was denied boarding in Entebbe by British Air and had to rebook and pay for another flight on a different airline that didn't fly through Canada. Who has another $1,700 in their pocket to cover such expense? A terrible financial hardship. I will NEVER use Kayak again to book travel."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "The fact that they changed the gate and didn't bother to let anyone know until after the flight was actually meant to leave. Also leaving nearly two hours late."
Pros: "Free TV."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Guy behind me was loud and kept kicking/pushing my seat."
Cons: "your app is useless because it didn't even notify me on the changes to my flight."
Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."
Cons: "They wouldn't offer me any change of the flight unless I paid more than double what I originally paid for the airfare. I just lost an entire airfare because they're change fee's are too much, and they are also not allowing me to change the flight to cheaper prices that I've found available on both Kayak and Air Canada. I will never fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "The crew and boarding is always efficient."
Cons: "It is a must to upgrade your seat if traveling longer than 3 hours."
Cons: "The complimentary earphones provided on the flight were the worst ear buds I have ever worn and were extremely uncomfortable. If you're going to make it so passengers cannot use their own earphones without the sound being distorted, then please upgrade your earphones to something more comfortable. My ears were sore the whole flight trying to readjust the ear buds."
