Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"

Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"
Pros: "on my flight from bkk to Doha all the flight attendants were very helpful. One in particular with the name Mary Jane, was very helpful and she stood out among the rest.

Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."

Cons: "The seats are terrible."

Pros: "Always heard middle eastern airlines where greats and Qatar didn't disappoint. The staff was amazing and the seats were comfortable and spacey considering it was economy. If I could do it again I would definitely fly with them again."

Cons: "Not allowing water on the flight made it extremely long and unbearable."
Pros: "I don't like at all"

Cons: "The plane was almost an hour late taking off from Doha. No one explained anything about the delay. This made us miss our connecting flight to Detroit. When we reached Boston, no one from Qatar air was available to help us get another flight. They made one announcement about contacting so and so, but no one had any idea who that was. There was no help with the baggage. Thank heavens for Jet Blue staff who went beyond to set us in the right direction and booked us on another flight.. Was very disappointed!!"
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Customer Service was excellent. Very roomie, and comfortable. Plane was also very neat and clean. They also had all of the latest movies and other entertainment. I will for sure fly with them again."
Pros: "I just flew from Bangkok to Miami, with a connection in Doha. The roundtrip ticket was about the weirdest one listed (less than $1000USD). For the price, it was a really good flight. The flight attendants were really nice. The seats were comfortable, food was more than decent, and there was a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Earlier in the year I flew a similar flight for a similar price on Emirates. Emirates I liked more for one reason in particular. Emirates had one attendant whose job was solely to clean the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I love the idea of a constantly cleaned bathroom on such a long flight. Qatar didn't have this."
Pros: "Space, seats, movies."
Cons: "I was on a seat at the end, after my seat, the stewardess had their closet and they kept hitting (very strongly) the back of my seat with the door, all the time. They woke me up several times. So not good."

Pros: "Staff was very pleasant , polite, and accommodating"

Pros: "Everything was fine, the crew was excellent. We liked that Lufthansa did provide the special meals (that we requested on-line) for our family."
Cons: "The boarding was rather slow (but not extremely so). Calling boarding by row ranges, like some other airlines do, may speed it up or make it more comfortable. The seats were not too comfortable, but within what one can expect for an Economy class --- and not too bad, either."
Pros: "Staff is great"
Cons: "Food is not good."
Cons: "There was an issue on the bus to take us to the teminal cuz a passenger took another's passenger's backpack which looked exactly the same but they made us wait on the bus til the mix up was settled. A lot of the passengers got frustrated cuz we had connecting flights and the workers by the plane didn't care including the bus driver. We finally went but we almost missed our flight .we had to literally run to the gate to make it."
Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."
Pros: "Flight was on time and flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Leaving Germany, I expected better tasting food. Our food leaving the USA and going to Germany tasted much better."
Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"
Pros: "Wi-Fi and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" cramped in economy"
Pros: "Great service. Comfortable business class seats."
Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"
Cons: "Reclining seats. Great for you but not the person behind you. It puts the screen about 10 inches from your face when the person in front of you reclines and it's impossible to lean forward and rest your head on the tray."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, bathrooms clean. Despite a late departure we arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a bit warm on both flights from DTW to FRA and the return. I usually dress for flying assuming it will be chilly but it was the opposite, a bit warm. No individual air control either. the last meal served was a ham & cheese sandwich which tasted odd..I couldn't eat it, other meals were fine."
Pros: "Lucked out. Flight was quite empty. Travel was comfortable and easy. A smooth ride all along."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were excellent and the service never stopped. The plane was comfortable and the bathroom clean. There was some turbulence, but that is not the fault of the airline, nor did it really bother me."
Cons: "There was a snarky attendant, but not all of them were that way."
Cons: "Lack of drinking water fountains at the FRA airport"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The sound quality of the loud speakers for the announcement was awful. The sound for the movies was also not great."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Everything was fine even though the plane was late,"
Pros: "Poor customer service dealing with bag delayed for 5 days, almost all of my holiday was over by the time the bag came and I was promised my bag would arrive on day 2, 3 and 4. Didn't arrive til 5th day"

Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."

Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"
Cons: "The food. I don't eat many food and the wasn't much selection."

Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."

Pros: "ON TIME."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was amazing. The food was fantastic, the service was better, and my comfort was always at maximum. This company makes all American domestic companies pale in comparison."
Pros: "When my traveling companion suddenly became acutely ill the flight attendants stepped right in and assisted him to an available Business Class area where he could be cleaned up (including changing his soiled shirt to a clean one from the 1st Class supplies) and made more comfortable. They checked on him frequently during the rest of the flight and made arrangements to get us assistance off the airplane in Detroit and through the crowded airport in record time in order to get him to the ER as soon as possible. We are so grateful to them for their caring help during what could have been a very embarrassing situation."
Cons: "We had no complaints or suggestions. Flying with Lufthansa was a wonderful experience during a difficult situation."
Pros: "Flight cancelled see above"

Cons: "Asked hor wheelchair assistance on the 3 connecting flight ... Never got one Weighing the carry on is ridiculous! Had to tortow away stuff because a couple pound over British allows up to 50 pounds on a carry on Asked to switch seats and hot terrible service Tried to get boarding pass 24 prior could not They lost my luggage got it 3 days later And other things that I was not happy about"
Pros: "The flight was on-time and very smooth. Check-in and baggage drop were incredibly easy. I also liked the self-scanning of the boarding passes to board. Great number of options on personal entertainment screen - including movies, tv shows, and music that people actually want to listen to! Great flight overall."
Pros: "Service by crew on board."
Cons: "Delay after boarding flight."
Cons: "Only the lunch wasn't good, there was only pasta at the moment"

Cons: "More food"
Pros: "Boarding a smooth flight"
Cons: "Food absolutely"
Pros: "Although economy, it was pleasant and okay"

Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Everything was just right."
Cons: "Food terrible"
Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent. Dinner was excellent. The hot breakfast never came. We were served a roll and one small cup of coffee with no refills. That was my only complaint. On a long overseas flight I think a hot breakfast would have been better than a roll."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on the first day. I had to call to find out that I was rebooked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "Had 45 Min to connect at vienna airport and our first flight was delayed so we had to run to get in time to the gate. Literally the gate was on the opposite side of the airport. Bad logistics"

Cons: "Service was bad"
Cons: "They are always delayed"
Pros: "I had double seat all to myself so that was nice."

Cons: "My flight was Dec 11 at 8:00 from Budapest to Vienna. And from Viena I have to fly to Minsk. So on Dec 10 at 10:00 pm they send an e-mail to let me know that the flight from Budapest to Viena is canceled. I am glad that I decided to check my e-mail before I go to bad. So I try to call Austrian, but they work just from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm. I start to search all the info the site of Austrian, and find one phone number that seats be working 24 hours. So finally I got a person on the phone who was able to help me. ..."
Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, generous and courteous."
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
Pros: "The rep was able to get me on Air France instead."
Cons: "This flight switch added a layover and 8 hrs to my journey home. Not to mention I was in a middle seat on the. 11 hr leg when I had originally booked a window seat."

Cons: "We booked Austrian Airlines to Kosice for 6 to play a concert for 3,000 on Thursday night. 4 of our group arrived from ZRH; 2 from LHR. LHR-VIE was late; we ran and arrived in time catch VIE-KSC before it left, but Austrian Air would not allow us to board, despite that the other part of our travel party was already on the plane and alerted both gate staff and on-board staff we were coming and wee had to play a show that night with Arch Enemy. We had to wait 10 hours in VIE & given €12 for food. AA cited "rotational issues". Shockingly, Austrian Air delayed the 2nd flight by another hour "to wait for someone". We had to cancel the show. Really angry"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Food selection was poor."
Cons: "We flew from TLV to Skopje via Vienna. None of the flight were on time and there was zero communication about the flight status. We arrived to the gate to start the boarding and they just told us wait here for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes we were asked to wait another 20 minutes. Only when we missed the take off time by 10 minutes they bothered to update us and inform us that the flight is being delayed in 2 hours."

Pros: "Flying on a direct flight was nice. The food was good. Ordinarily the snack lunch is not good but the sandwich was quite good."

Pros: "bording, take off, landing were on time excellent service on board crew was professional, present, smiling, creating feeling of comfort would definitely fly again with Austrian and recommend the airline to my friends and family"
Cons: "On my way to Bulgaria, I flew to Varna and would have liked to have a return flight from Varna, that makes the connection for Chicago"
Cons: "I luked the atmosphire and the silence ."
Pros: "It was such a short flight, no comment for this leg."
Cons: "No organized boarding system, the entire plane was told to get in line at the gate with the exception of business/first class and elderly or people traveling with children."
Cons: "I could not pay for check-in baggages when I bough 4 tickets for 4 passengers. So I called the airline customer service, and they told me that the first check-in baggage is free. However, when we boarded the airplane on 9/5/2016, we were charged 30 Euros for each bag, a total of 120 Euros for 4 checked in bags of 4 passengers. This is unfair, and I would like it to be corrected if possible. Thanks."

Pros: "Good food and drinks,great movies"

Pros: "Crew was nice, plane was new and clean, flight was safe with no issues"
Cons: "Plane was so small, I had a feeling I was on a low cost carrier in Europe. Even carry on couldn't fit above in the bins. This is very disappointing for an airline that used to be great. That plane was like the bottom level of the Titanic where people were squizzed in. Upon arrival in Vienna getting off the plane we had to take the stairs and the bus to the terminal - that's how small the plane was. Just awful."
Pros: "The food They were kind"
Cons: "Seats are thick but zero lumbar. Back too short at shoulders and I'm only 5'8""
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours because they had No crew to operate the flight! Such poor customer service on Americans part as well. No answers and rude agents when you tried to ask any questions"
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late.

Pros: "I have been flying American for 50 years, as a million miler."
Cons: "Another passenger asked for a drink. The passing crew member replied "i dont work first class." Very kindly the passenger asked again for a cocktail.

Cons: "Flight delayed 24 hrs"
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"

Pros: "Friendly, professional, polite, perfect."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."

Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"

Pros: "Friendly staff. In-flight entertainment included."

Pros: "Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Seats too small. I mean waaaay too small."
Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."
Pros: "The crew is good"
Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."
Cons: "Checking a single bag costs $25 each way, which is irritating when they beg to check all the carry-ons at the gate."
Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."
Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."
Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"
Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
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"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"
Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."
Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."
Pros: "Aircraft and cabin crew were superb."
Pros: "This was years ago, and yet I still remember how comfortable I was. The waiting facilities were nice and the airplane service very client friendly. Air Canada was definitely the best flying experience I have ever had."
Pros: "Flight delayed and changing of gates"
Cons: "To far from one gate to the other, you need a shuttle"
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies and food."
Cons: "Attendance were not as nice as the other Asian airlines. Tooth brush and toothpaste might be better addition. The bathroom was short."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Don't let kids sit by the dreamliner windows. They play with them too much and the change in lighting wakes people up. Food was ok."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Air Canada. Our flight was delayed by 4 hours because they had to deice the plane. Yes it was frustrating but I would much rather have a flight of upset passengers then risking our lives. The captains and the crew went out of their way to make sure that we were the most comfortable. They gave us food and drinks as we waited and were extremely patient. Upon arrival many passengers had missed their connecting flights, including myself. They put us on the next flight out and gave all passengers a hotel and meals for the night. I would definitely recommend Air Canada. The plane itself is also pretty spacious so don’t be afraid to fly economy."
Cons: "Nothing really. They were great. I mean, definitely wished my flight wasn’t delayed. Although It wasn’t their fault that they needed to deice the plane, that’s something that should’ve been accounted for way before our flight was supposed to take off."
Pros: "entertainments - many choices"
Cons: "few cabin attandants were not easily likabke..."
Pros: "Crew gets excellent makes for friendliness."
Cons: "Coffee not served with meals. Coffee came after meal was eaten."
Pros: "Business class seat"
Cons: "Mpvie choices are terrible. They don’t know what “new releases” mean."
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Cons: "Delay luggage for 6days and luggage claim takes long time."
Pros: "Excellent attention over the telephone for re-royting. Thanks to Kayaks timely notification I was able to rearrange my return."
Pros: "The flight was not booked full so it was a very comfortable trip."
Cons: "Food was inedible. Not properly cooked and very poor quality for such an expensive flight."
Pros: "crew was great, good service"
Cons: "no vegetarian dinner option plastic cup cracked striaght up the side during normal use and spilled red wine on my pants - this happened to other passengers as well"
Cons: "Flight attendants were unfriendly."
Pros: "Lots of movies and tv shows to pick from. Didn't need to bring snacks. Served food several times."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late!"
Pros: "Great service! Drinks, water, snacks and attendants came by so often. They were all attentive and had great communixation!"
Pros: "Plane was on time and manned appropriately with a single crew member. Gate checked bag was handled with care."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I liked that the crew was awesome. Super nice and helpful!"
Cons: "The tray from my seat was still wet and the seat was to uncomfortable. Needed to use travel pillow to sit on"
Pros: "The entertainment and food was decent. The flight attendants were very nice and patient."
Cons: "It's disappointing that just because I'm in economy I have to be uncomfortable during a 12+ hr flight."
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "At first, due to condensation issue, a lot of water was dripping from ceiling to passenger seats and crews were just passing tissues and saying its natural and they cannot avoid this issue... I fly a lot through out the year and never seen this happening before. Okay, this can happen but how crews dealt with the issue was so unprofessional. Also, on my way back from ICN-YVR, my seat was right beside the washroom and the door of this washroom was not fully closed when it was not in use. Therefore, it lighted up all the time and smelled all the time as well. I complained this to one of crews and told her to close the door at least whenever she was passing by. She didn't do at all haha. Cannot believe this is one of Canada's major flight companies..."
Pros: "Affordable fares"
Cons: "They ran out of the food, and many people were left with no choice for dinner. Food was just okay. Crews weren't very helpful when boarding. It was hard to find a spot for my carry on luggage. I waited for someone to come over and help me find the spot, but no luck."
Cons: "Bag damaged. No one to report damage to"
Cons: "선택의 여지가 없었다. 사과도 없었다. 그냥 내밀었다. 이것 밖에 남지 않았으니 먹으라고 준 기내식은 누군가 포장을 뜯었다가 덮은 것. 뒤쪽에 앉았다고 이런 차별을 받아야 하는가? 난 돼지고기가 싫었다. 내가 한국인이기때문에 한국식 돼지고기 볶음 요리를 처먹어야 한다는 논리인가? 설령 그것밖에 남지 않았다 하더라도 먼저 "이것밖에 남지 않아서 소고기를 줄 수 없다. 미안하다. 이것이라도 드실텐가" 먼저 물어봤어야 한다. 그래야 승객인 내가 먹을 것인가 안먹을 것인가 선택할 수 있지 않나? 대부분의 직원들 태도가 거만했다. 미소조차 짓지 않았다. 말 한마디가 중요한데... This is the Air Canada."
Pros: "Entertainment options were plentiful -- from TV to movies, podcasts, audio books and games. Boarding was easy and there were plenty of bathrooms aboard. Very, very smooth landing in Vancouver. Easily the best I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Leg room was average for these types of flights. Wasn't a huge fan of the food served; at least one meal was Korean fare."
Pros: "The most important thing of course is that we arrived safely of course. The plane was clean, the staff members were polite."
Cons: "The seats were so small and terribly uncomfortable. I looked it up and it seems they are some of the smallest seats in the industry. They packed the dreamliner with more seats than it was meant for, making it really cramped for an international flight. Most people had to sit with their feet in their chair because it was so uncomfortable, and my knees were jammed up into the back of the seat in front if I put them down. And I'm only 5'7" so I can't imagine what it would be like for people 6' and above. The seats are hard, narrow and sloped at an odd angle. The bathroom design is poor - the lids of the toilets will NOT stay up and come crashing down on your back when you sit down (disgusting!!). I tried 4 toilets before I could find one that worked without the loose lid. Also the food was really inferior. It is the worst food I have had on an international flight, and I have flown many trips including Delta, Emirates, British Airways, Air France, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, etc. There was also a much smaller movie selection than I am used to. Overall it seemed like a budget airline and was one of my least comfortable trips."
Pros: "The boarding in time, the crew very nice people."
Cons: "The fly Montreal-Vancouver was a bit long and not food. The fly Seoul -Vancouver was ok but 9 hours sitting a little uncomfortable . The seats are very tiny ."
Pros: "The one good thing about this flight was it wasn't fully booked, so I managed to get an entire row to myself, that and the food wasn't bad, and movie selection was alright."
Cons: "There were major delays taking off, and landing. I was supposed to have about a 3 hour layover in Toronto, due to multiple delays, flight plan changes, and mechanical failures I ended up getting booted from the 2nd leg of the flight, and having to spend an unanticipated night in Toronto. To begin, my 3pm flight from Seoul to Toronto was delayed to 6pm (the day before the flight was even scheduled, and for no apparent reason.) I wasn't even notified of this change, the only reason I found out was I tried checking in online the afternoon of the day before my flight (only because I remembered to do so myself, never received a check in reminder notice) and found out of the change. So my connecting flight had been bumped, and my ETA to my destination changed. This wasn't terrible, just an annoyance. Second, the flight was stuck at the departure gate for over an our. I'm not 100% sure why, however, after delay after delay, and then a flight plan change, we finally took off over an hour late, this too was was an annoyance, an nothing notable. It wasn't until we landed, where we were delayed on the tarmac for yet over another hour, due to mechanical issues that was the problem. We were stuck for about an hour (the pilot promising we'd be moving in "just 5 minutes", every 10-15 minutes) before the pilot decided to order buses to unload us, to then turn them away once they arrived so that way we could get towed to the gate. It then took an additional 40 minutes for the plane to get hitched, and towed to the gate. Once we arrived at the gate, I tried running through the airport to catch my connecting flight (which I had 10 minutes till boarding, and 40 minutes till departure) only to find out that I had been bumped from my connecting flight (despite having no checked baggage) and would have to stay the night in Toronto. Apparently this is not a rare occurrence for Air Canada to screw up flights. There were other people both on other original fights, as well as mine who were bumped from their connecting flights to various destinations, as well as having lost luggage. Again, individually these weren't exactly huge issues, collectively, they're the reason this has probably been my first and last time flying Air Canada."
Pros: "The bathrooms were clean and the dinner was pretty decent. Lots of movie selections. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The space was cramped. My flight from Toronto to Seoul was not good. I was seated right next to the bathroom and the way the seat was positioned, it stuck out next to the bathroom door. So, people were constantly walking into my seat and I could feel the air (and smell) from the bathroom every time someone opened and closed the door. It was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delayed departure from Seoul so I missed the connection flight to Washington DC."
Cons: "They mess up on my flight. Had to wait for a good 30mins. They finally found me flight"
Cons: "Very rude staff, my flight from Dublin was delayed for three hours on the runway why they fix the leak for the restrooms. Once we landed I had to clear customs in Canada and get to the new flight. They told me when I finally had to make through the airport and through customs that I need to manage my time better and understand and give myself plenty of time to make the flight.. REALLY??? It wasn't my fault that their crappy plane wasn't working right wasn't my fault we were delayed but I need to manage my time better I think they fell and bumped their head!!"
Cons: "I will never fly Air Canada between Detroit and Toronto again. Both ways the crew looked exhausted and like they were rather be anyplace but working our flight. Both times they took our carry ons without giving us a choice. For our flight out this was a stressful nuisance because we had to catch a connecting overseas flight. This involved my husband and son going to baggage claim and then having to go back through customs and TSA. The whole point of carry ons is to avoid this. Luckily we didn't miss our international flight but not a good way to begin a trip of a lifetime. Flight was completely uncomfortable and it seemed like no one cared. Should have driven"
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "The gate area was horribly crowded, extremely chaotic and hot."
Cons: "I feel that there should be more room between seats for people that are in the heavier side"
Pros: "Food, comfort, friendly."
Cons: "Movie choice could be better"
Pros: "flight attendant seemed very kind. I sooo appreciated that the landing was so incredibly smooth. I get motion sick sometimes so that was very nice."
Cons: "delayed 30 minutes waiting for the catering truck. Also, it was FREEZING in that plane, I thought my ankles were going to fall off."
Pros: "Loved the premium economy seat! Would definitely fly again with Air Canada. The first meal was very good. The snack wasn't too exciting. Skipped last meal."
Cons: "Complimentary earphones! They hurt and the sound quality was horrible. I couldn't hear the words when I tried to watch a movie. I ended up having to borrow my kid's kiddie headphones. I would tell anyone flying w AC to bring their own ear/headphones!"
Pros: "The flight is packed, but overall is not bad. The crew is kinda keep everything casual."
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Late. Again. Each of my flights with Air Canada has been late."
Cons: "Every flight was late. Missed next connection. Broken luggage."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they did not communicate ..."
Pros: "Air Canada made a last minute change on my iteniary which resulted in an 8 hour layover in Canada. Coming off a ten hour flight from Seoul this was not appreciated."
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Pros: "The we flight itself was fine. 787, good selection of onboard entertainment. Seats were a bit cramped but not too bad."
Cons: "Hour and a half late arriving. New flight plan, more fuel."
Cons: "Way too many delays and lost our baggage."
