Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very easy and great reminder app"
Pros: "Great crew. Quick service."
Cons: "Plane is a bit older with tiny tv screens."
Pros: "Fast easy good space"
Cons: "The flight was an hour delayed due to technical / gas issues"
Pros: "Nothing really. It was as expected, but not more."
Cons: "Seats were cramped for all the talk of legroom"
Pros: "They were nice and professional"
Cons: "on this flight a bit more to eat"
Pros: "Like that I had access to WiFi whole on the plane."
Cons: "Not charging for food or snacks"
Pros: "Excellent leg room, friendly staff, smooth plane ride and new upgraded seats"
Cons: "Nothing, excellent experience"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Pros: "The general experience was mostly the same as usual except for the extremely long delay caused by weather (out of the airline's control)."
Cons: "JetBlue staff at ATL never once updated passengers on the delay. The overhead space filled up too quickly during boarding and I was forced to check carry-on without time to secure or gather my effects. JetBlue baggage claim staff at JFK were then purposefully misleading and evasive."
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight."
Cons: "I did not experience any disturbance."
Pros: "All my needs were met, but at times I did feel like staff were perhaps “inconvenienced/annoyed” by my frequent requests for water. I drank alcohol and thus wanted to stay as hydrated as possible. Also, the seat belt thing/issue. FAA or someone needs to review and update the bathroom policy. Consuming water is vital for our bodies and we need to be in situations that allow us to do so and also allow us easy access to flush out our toxins/liquids."
Cons: "No room in seat where this is suppose to be room. Arm chair tray tables??? Come on now... its 2019. TV was to small and poor TV quality."
Pros: "Nice crew, reasonably comfortable seating"
Cons: "One of the requested meals was not vegetarian and another was a very basic sandwich (not filling or at all appetizing)"
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "We wasnt told how to use the tvs and where to put earbuds."
Pros: "I really enjoyed my flight. I generally fly Delta but I was really impressed with so many features this flight had to offer. Free television with movies and free WiFi. The staff was very friendly and the snacks actually were some of the things I get at home. I will fly jet blue in the future!"
Pros: "We upgraded to the “extra legroom” seats and they were so comfortable. The free entertainment was very nice and made the flight time pass quickly. The crew was friendly, attentive, and kind. We are looking forward to flying with them again."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours for no apparent reason"
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Cons: "Flight was 45 min late inbound to ATL"
Pros: "Absolutely great leg room."
Pros: "Well organized"
Cons: "There wasn’t a thing that needed to be fixed. Future airlines."
Pros: "Loved the size and comfort of the seats especially the legroom! Enjoyed being able to have more than one snack and friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Pros: "Legroom, free movies, and the crew members were courteous, and professional."
Cons: "They only offered chips as snacks; I wish there were really foods I could order."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."
Pros: "The fact that I was informed of the delays and the gate change by way of email."
Cons: "Delay delay delay delay"
Pros: "The crew was professional and did a good job."
Cons: "The plane arrived late from another location. I understand this was probably out of JetBlue’s hands. The plane seemed really dirty. I’m used to flying Delta out of Atlanta so this was my first JB experience. I was really disappointed with the condition and cleanliness of the inside of the plane."
Pros: "Timely and pleasant experience. My extra space seat assignment was grea."
Cons: "No particulars"
Pros: "The entire experience"
Cons: "Couldn't find any thing to grouch about"
Pros: "Quick boarding, on-time departure, early arrival, outstanding staff, and loved being able to watch a variety of channels during the flight!!!"
Pros: "I liked the customer service and they actually served snacks. Flight was smoothe"
Pros: "Jet Blue was GREAT- as usual. I want you to know that getting through security in ATL airport was an ordeal. Incredibly long lines, disorganized (a sign clearly said, TSA Pre-check- line up here) and then the people managing the lines yelling at us (and this is an observation) because they wanted us lined up further back. This was baffling because the actual line into the TSA space was empty at that point. I think the ATL security staff could all benefit from some further training about to work with people effectively AND ATL airport needs to look at their systems. I know it's a busy airport, but there has to be something better than what they are doing now!"
Pros: "My partner and I bought extra legroom seats we could sit together. They were expensive but nice. The crew was very friendly and tried to help with my broken screen/entertainment system. When the attendant couldn't fix it, she said she could offer me a cocktail but since it was 10:30 am, it was kind of hard to justify."
Cons: "It's a first world problem to have a broken personal entertainment system at your jet seat so, of course, one keeps these things in perspective. I mention it only because this flight was relatively expensive ... and I was really looking forward to watching The Greatest Showman. :-)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "JetBlue flight was delay us for 3 hours without any explanation. Made us feel unappreciated as customers."
Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"
Pros: "The professional crew"
Pros: "Nothing at all. Worse experience in my life."
Cons: "My flight was delay about 8 times of not more I end up getting to my destinations 5 hours later. It was the worse experiencing of my life I would never ever in my life would flight JetBlue ever again."
Pros: "Easy onboarding process. Great leg room in economy. Short flight but got coffee and cookies"
Pros: "lots of legroom!"
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Plenty of Leg room and overhead compartments"
Pros: "It's a budget carrier - I don't expect great food and brand new upholstery. I expect safe, on-time travel, and JetBlue meets and exceeds my expectations every time. Very happy. A great, community-involved company too."
Cons: "Free Wi-Fi, but it seems you have to sign up for an account or/and do something with Amazon. Needlessly complicated. If the Wi-Fi is free, just let passengers join."
Pros: "Landed early and safe"
Pros: "The crew and food was great. Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing it was great leg room was great"
Cons: "When I got home and unpacked my sneakers were stolen out of my bag. The ripped the bag open and took them"
Pros: "I was treated with empathy and compassion on my roundtrip flight from NYC to ATL. I suffer from severe anxiety and I am facing my fear of flying without medication and I expressed this to the staff and they were attentive to make sure I was okay. They answered all my questions and gave great advice about how to tackle my fear. Great job JetBlue recruitment and training."
Cons: "No one compliant"
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Noise in cabin unable to sleep"
Pros: "After the long overseas flight this was quick. Nice that it included snacks and beverages."

Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"
Cons: "The worst flight I have ever been on. Sat on the plane for an hour before taking off with no AC"
Pros: "The flight crew were awesome"
Cons: "Not exactly the flight but the attendant white lady in Atlanta at the gate needs to sharpen her customer service skills, a bit obvious on who she prefers to deal with, as a foreigner and over 25 years of experience in dealing with the public, I felt the indifference. I frequently fly and my choice of airline is delta, this by far has been the only dissappointnent. Please do make sure this gets to the person in charge."
Cons: "I am very short (5’0”) but there just isnt enough room i cant imagine what a big person feels on a 9 hour overseas flight."
Pros: "On time. Great service. Good breakfasr"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive attendants and flight crew."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Cons: "6 hours late. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Vivian and her coworkers were fantastic!"
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"
Pros: "I love it when there is a TV screen at my seat."
Pros: "We got home"
Cons: "Delayed. 1 hour delay they said. Gate change from d41 to d6. Went to grab some food during delay and then they started boarding about 950 and we were last call to board. Once on board they then had to fuel the plane and get it ready for flight that was another twenty minutes Finally in the air about 1045 Frustrating. I don’t know why we boarded with plane not ready to fly"
Cons: "1/12 hours late had to change out equipment"
Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade"
Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."
Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable the entire flight. Seats too close together, then when you recline you hit the person behind you."
Cons: "Good tv shows, friendly attendants"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."
Pros: "Great helpful happy staff, made you feel welcome. Good atmosphere and peaceful. Food excellent."
Cons: "On transatlantic flight , seats comfortable but inadequate recline for a night flight and no footrest."
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."
Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."
Pros: "don't know it's first flight delta's fault or next flight china southern's,arrive 3 days,but still couldn't find our two bags"
Pros: "Everything on Delta's part was very well done, and all of their employees were great. Arrived a little early, and very nice entertainment system over their wifi"
Cons: "Expensive ticket, ATL airport staff rude (not Delta employees)"
Cons: "Seats most uncomfortable on any flight I have ever taken"
Cons: "The last 30 people on the plane were told there is no.overhead space for a second bag, so I had to check it at the gate. Once on the plane, there was plenty of overhead space. To make it worse, it was raining at my destination, and my bag, and contents, got wet while it was being unloaded."
Cons: "Delta is a terrible airline. They try to stick you with extra fees every time you turn around, and the planes are horribly uncomfortable. The seats on this flight were so cramped I could barely fit into the. (I'm fairly tall but not very big otherwise.) Additionally, we tried to change our flight to a different day that was less crowded, and were told it would cost over $600 per passenger to do so. Highway robbery. I wish Southwest flew to Madison."
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Pros: "I only fly Delta because they are consistent and efficient and very courteous."
Pros: "The gate agent was outstanding and extremely pleasant. The flight to OKC was only half full so the Crew moved everyone around so there was extra room on every row...that doesn't happen very often so I was excited to have extra leg and seat room!"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, and flight left on time."
Pros: "It was a lot more comfortable. There were not many people so it was nice to stretch out ."
Cons: "The plane was fairly dated."

Cons: "Entertainment system didn’t work."
Pros: "I had someone waiting on me at the gate to escort me to the plane! Great service!"
Cons: "I called the American 1-800 number and was initially greeted with the worst customer service I’ve experienced. I wish i knew her name. I hung up and called back and was helped so well by Anna."
Cons: "The spacing between rows, the aisle and size of seats were terrible. I will go back flying British Airways and Lufthansa!!!!!"
Cons: "3 hours delay, NOT entertainment at all, this is ridiculous! The dinner was regular, but breakfast was terrible."
Cons: "Very long time since I have being on s flight with tv in the aisle , and not on headrest .. this is s international flight ."
Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Pros: "Food was better than expected."

Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "We didn't leave on time"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmack for two hours due to lighting get, while the Delta flights continued on as usual. This was an American Airlines policy."
Cons: "They overbooked the plane and the customers used the overhead compartments for very small items; such as bags and briefcases which made the overhead fill quickly."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant"
Pros: "Let me book my luggage free ."
Cons: "Texas people on there break,cannot talk to customers that are lost"
Pros: "Re-routed to Phx; inflight Phx was closed. Diverted to Tucson. Only jets on the ramp were American. Seems if you close an airport there would be a lot more than 4 jets and different airlines. Landed at 11pm; still on the aircraft at 130am"
Cons: "Let's see pretty much the whole experience"
Pros: "Ease of access. Hospitality."
Cons: ". The plane was clearly a very old model - very cramped."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather, which is understandable. The way your staff handled this in both Atlanta and Philly was totally unacceptable. No one knew what to do. I missed my connecting flight to Rome, Italy. I got a good deal on the tickets but in the future I will stick with Delta."
Cons: "The check in crew were rude"
Cons: "Flight was canceled then delayed"
Pros: "Made flight eventually to Dallas."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything from the 6 different times our flight got delayed and after 7 hours of waiting they just canceled our flight at 2am with no remorse and the worst customer service ever"
Cons: "The ticket agents for my flight into LAX were awful. They were rude to other passengers and extremely curt and disrespectful. The one agent, Tamika, spoke in a tone as if she were speaking with a child. The passenger in front of me had the same unpleasant experience and subsequently filed a complaint. It just confirms my theory, that some people are just not meant for customer service positions."
Cons: "The DELAY"
Pros: "Leg room was ok.."
Cons: "American Airlines don't have entertainment that one can access when on board unlike united airlines. They have an icon for entertainment that passengers can watches movies when on board. AA, don't offer snacks to its passengers unlike United airlines..! Seat 8A has white stuff falling from the top.., seemed like particles of ice-they were cold."
Cons: "Bad weather cancelled my flight. I probably won't get my money back. I was stuck at airport and had to pay hundreds of dollars to get home by deltA. Grace Elizabeth"
Pros: "I'm alive"
Cons: "Nothing went correct on that flight. They left an airport with low fuel which resulted with us being stuck somewhere over 90 min"
Pros: "Most of the staff were helpful"
Cons: "Some were not"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "American Airlines tends to ova book that makes things hard. Sat by n watched agents hv to handle to many problems waiting 4 my plane. Flight was delayed to ny from Chicago by 1hour n half. Then no plugs in Chicago airport gates to charge cell phone. They make too much money to be that far behind times."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional. The flight was really smooth."
Cons: "I can't say anything bad. It was a great experience."
Pros: "The A321 from DFW to SAN was very nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The Super 80 from ATL to DFW was the hottest aircraft I've ever been on. There was essentially zero airflow making the cabin 95 degrees and 100% humidity. It would have been cooler to stand outside. It was like this when I walked on the jet until well after we leveled off at altitude and then from when we landed (throttles at idle) until we deplaned. We had to wait for a gate for 20 minutes on the Tarmac and then when we got to a gate we had to wait for a gate agent to move the jet bridge for 10 minutes. It was miserable. If you all know you have a low flow aircraft then hurry to hook up the air conditioning cart in both ATL and DFW, fix the APU to produce more air, or don't shut the engines down when there is no gate agent at the aircraft. My clothes were soaked in sweat making this the worst trip I've ever taken. Come on American. You can do better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and there were no TV on a cross country flight."
Pros: "Roomy & comfortable seating for such a small aircraft"
Cons: "Late boarding, over an hour"
Cons: "Gate changed and baoarding time changed countless times."
Pros: "American Airlines was the best flight experience I've ever had. I've not down twice and the first time we wrecked, so not wrecking was nice."

Cons: "No cranapple juice?"
Pros: "Love American."
Pros: "Really appreciated AC getting us on an earlier flight as our scheduled flight was delayed over 2 hours due to weather."
Pros: "Ease of travel"
Cons: "The food was horrible on the plane"
Pros: "Entertainment and comfortable seats"
Cons: "They could have given us some snacks or something"
Cons: "Crew could be friendlier."
Pros: "there was high wind warnings and we had so much turbulence even a few seconds before the landing but the flight crew landed us safely regardless. hats off to them!"
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Great attitude of the crew & staff! Similar feel to SW personable ,professional people."
Cons: "Thrifty Canucks are cheap on the snacks, both size & quality, but then it's a two-hour-nap-flight so no big deal"
Pros: "I arrived safely"
Cons: "I didn't appreciate losing my luggage as I came to Canada for a wedding and I didn't have access to my things. The flight was direct so I don't understand why my luggage was lost."
Pros: "It was quite and smooth"
Cons: "I have never been so hot on a plane. Even with the air blowing on me I was sweating! It was crazy hot!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 33hrs and no accommodations were provided to us; no vouchers nothing! They didn’t even have a rep at their desk at the airport to answer any questions; just a sign with a number to call."
Pros: "They got us late to Toronto with my little child and I decided to spend the night in TO. My child has fallen asleep and there ha No way we could make the connection no matter how much I rushed."
Cons: "Small aircraft last min bags check in etc. delayed flights Ground staff in Atlanta is good but in Toronto: very rude"
Pros: "We arrived alive."
Cons: "The water lines on the plane froze. The flights were delayed, but the staff still made us que up and stand in line for two hours."
Pros: "The young competent Air Canada staff at the gate and her supervisor were kind enough to give me the last seat for the 11:45 am flight to Toronto on Dec 18th, 2017. After more than 24 hours stranded in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport due to power outage on Dec 17th, 2017, I was so relieved as I sat on my seat, when an air hostess asked if I would like a seat in business class. She said they randomly upgrade passengers to business class when seats are available. So it all ended well, I got home to Toronto safely in (business) class. Thank you Air Canada !"
Cons: "There were no Air Canada personnel to help us, inside the international terminal during the power outage at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport on Dec 17th 2017. It would have really helped, even if only one personnel showed up at the gate to provide support and some reassurance."
Pros: "on time, easy to board"
Cons: "no snacks at all . would appreciate some peanuts with my drink or something."
Pros: "Good clean flight except that the crew(male) was a bit rude when any request was made!! Very surprising for a Canadian to do so...shud be transferred to domestic flights!!the Indian food served was distasteful"
Cons: "t took the crew 3 hrs on the tarmac to figure out the plane was unsafe to fly!"
Cons: "Was forced to check my carry on bag, even though it was the proper size and weight."
Pros: "No built in entertainment systems. YES PLEASE. Built entertainment systems take up room, sometimes have screens that can't be turned off, and some generate a lot of heat. So glad they were removed. The built in streaming service is a much better solution. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Just stop serving "food." Just stop. Rice, bread and brownies is really not gonna work. Just stop. Admit that any protein or fat is out of budget. Eat before your flight. Seats are not the most comfortable."
Pros: "I got upgraded to business. I was very happy, because my day in Atlanta was exhausting, and that made the whole thing excellent. Harry Giles"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly & everyone was helpful"
Cons: "Nothing every thing went well"
Pros: "Had a great experience on Air Canada. Would not hesitate to use again."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The attendant at the checking was very friendly and courteous, the website information on the luggage weight was incorrectly worded and we had to transfer some of the clothing to a carrying on bag. The wheelchair attendant was very friendly and courteous she made my mother feel relaxed since it was her first time traveling alone as a disabled person."
Cons: "A snack should have been served. Only juices were served. An announcement should have been made for layover passengers to purchase food at the airport if they are unable to purchase on board with a card."
Pros: "The counter employees as well as the people who helped me navigate the airport ( I am disabled) were very helpful."
Cons: "The crew on the plane seemed very overburdened and somewhat annoyed by passengers. Maybe they were having a challenging day. I don't know. I didn't even want to ask for a glass of water."
Pros: "Long dealy, bad customer service"
Cons: "Long delay, changed gate 4 times, worst service"
Pros: "The rest"
Cons: "My carryon luggage is lost"
Pros: "Nothing! I was treated like garbage."
Cons: "Nothing! They treated me like garbage; the plane never left; I went on an inferiors third class airline from First with now refund; and they lost all of my luggage for over a week! I looked like a fool to my clients and peers!"
Cons: "All flights were delayed. makes for a problem to connect to the next flight."
Pros: "Crew were very nice, and seats had plenty of room"
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Tv choices were excellent- made the time pass much more quickly."
Cons: "No snacks provided, just options for sale. Those looked interesting though."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on the way from Atlanta to North Bay. This was a expensive hunting trip that was planned in January with no return on the deposit. I got my bags on the day I was scheduled to leave. They had no way to track my bag and offered me $50. I had over $7000 of gear in the bag and I lost my $2600 deposit for the hunt. Not to mention the time a way from work where I just sat around in the bush doing nothing. On the way home, they lost my bag again. No one ever came to customer service desk and I had to call a number to India who was zero help. Terrible experience. Never fly Air Canada!!!!!"
Pros: "I was very impressed today when one of the airline stewardess went back into the Terminal waiting area to get a passenger's phone charge she left behind. We were all seated when the passenger noticed she had forgotten it and to her credit she walked back to the front of the plane to ask about retrieving the charge. She was particularly concerned because she had just bought it. She came back to her seat and was told they would see what they could do. To our surprise after the doors were closed, the stewardess came back to hand the passenger her charger. She was very grateful! Well done Air Canada."
Pros: "The flight attendants wet very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "The clerk helping with the boarding passes was very rude."
Pros: "Service... comfortable sits"
Cons: "Delay in flight , long queue at Toronoto airport"
Pros: "We been flying discount airlines out of Bellingham for the last few years. How ever with the exchange rate now we decided to fly Air Canada this time. OMG what a difrence great seats more room and great service"
Pros: "Friendly staff every step of the way. Were always there and were always mindfu of your space."
Cons: "The woman that I was dealing with before the trip even began was incredibly rude and condescending! Talking down to me the entire time and didn't experience any patience whatsoever. She seeed to not know what she was doing whatsoever and was not helpful in the slightest. This is the woman in the desk leaving Edmonton heading to Calgary"
Cons: "We were in Toronto for an entire week without our bag and Air Canada showed no concern at all for our well being. I travelled with my one year old son, I needed supplies for him and Air Canada gave me dead end numbers to call, websites that didn't work and even hung up on us when we were trying to find out about our bags. They treated us terribly. I will never fly them again."
Pros: "The flight attendant were good and professional."
Cons: "There was an overbooking, so I gave up my place for someone else to travel in exchange of compensation. The flight back to Toronto from Atlanta was delayed by 2 hours and a half, which put me in risk to miss my connection flight. The plane was small and there was not enough space for mid size people."
Pros: "That there was no delays or anything, at any point, very easy."
Pros: "Video monitor did not work on ATL YYZ leg"
Cons: "at atlanta airport i was refused to board the flight because it was aircanada and i wasnt told anything about that infact i had to pay 130$ extra for rebooking my ticket wihout any reason and the airline person didnt talk properly it wasnt my fault that i was given a air canada flight i booked a turkish airline flight,infact i had to wait at the airport for like 24 hours!contact me back asap this is the worst ever experience i have had with you!i have been booking with you guys for a long time.i hope to hear from you soon!"
Cons: "Small child violently kicked me seat the entire flight. I asked the parent (politely) to ask his son to stop but he didnt think he should have to. (They also thought it was fine for their toddler daugther to crawl into another sleeping passengers lap during flight. The crew was no help. I get that kids are kids but this was excessive. A crying baby would have been a welcone change. I think the crew should have stepped in."
Pros: "Quietness of the airplane"
Cons: "The seat back was not comfortable for my back."
Pros: "Reaching my destination, that's the only thing I was happy about"
Cons: "The plane is old and seat are close to each others, it wouldn't hirt if they make extra space, afterall it's a long flight!"
Pros: "Air Canada front desk people were wonderful and helpful."
Cons: "No food. Beverage only."
Cons: "Air Canada overbooked the flight, so even though we had purchased tickets well in advance, we were kicked off the flight and pushed back 7 hours or so, meaning we missed a planned layover in Istanbul and lost most of a day on our vacation. Additionally, after our flight schedule was changed, one of our checked bags was lost (left in Toronto instead of continuing on to Istanbul). I checked the bag on Tuesday, and it wasn't found and delivered until Friday, so I went three and a half days without any extra clothes or most of my toiletries. I know airlines (like all businesses) are only interested in money, and I know Air Canada isn't the only airline to do this, so I can't say I'm shocked. But it still boggles the mind how poorly customers can sometimes be treated. We all accept it as a cost of flying, but it's crazy to think that one can buy a ticket without buying a seat on the plane. It's like ordering at a restaurant and being told that, yes, you ordered the food, but you didn't order the dishes to serve the food on, so you're either going to have to wait or pay extra to get plates and utensils. It would be much more honest for the airline to say that your ticket purchases nothing but the *chance* to fly at the scheduled time. At least that would be straightforward."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment and service was great. The Toronto airport waiting area was also good."
Cons: "The luggage drop line was terrible. Only few stations were open and they worked incredibly slow. At the Toronto airport, we were made to fill up customs forms even though we were set for international transfers. None of the questions on the form made any sense since we were not entering Canada but rather leaving for other international destinations. Because of this formality, we had to pass another line which took another 30 minutes. Furthermore, they denied me at the counter because my original check in crew was unable to print my second boarding pass for some technical reason. But, there was noone at the customer service desk to print a boarding pass for me. I had to wait another twenty minutes just for this! All of this happened in a "neverland" section of the airport that didn't even have any restrooms! This could really turn into a nightmare scenario."
Pros: "Really liked the crew and entertainment options and the fact that all seats had tvs even for a relatively short flight."
Cons: "I find it really strange that you can't wear over ear headphones during boarding/takeoff/landing. Didn't like that. Everything else was great."
Pros: "This was the greatest flying experience I've had in a long time. The crew was very pleasant and helpful. The in flight entertainment was spot on and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend them to anyone flying abroad. They were efficient in the boarding process as well. I will be flying them again!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "They could’ve offered free snacks instead of only offering items for purchase."
Pros: "I really liked the entertainment on board. Made the flight go by so fast."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours making us miss our connecting flight, the revised flight was delayed resuslting in missing our next connection and this resulted it lost baggage. So an 11 hour flight becames 24 hours which is unacceptable when travling with 2 kids. Nevering flying United again."
Cons: "Very small screens, poor service when flight was delayed from boarding hostess"
Pros: "It got us to London. My bags were quickly available."
Cons: "The seats were SO. UNCOMFORTABLE. I didn't sleep at all and have a headache because of them. Absolutely atrocious. The food was meh. One of the flight attendants was so rude I dreaded every time she headed over. I'll be flying with Delta in the future."
Cons: "We should up 2.5 hours before our flight. Was told by United desk clerk my flight to Chicago was the day before and that the reservation for my wife was for correct day but had been cancelled"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable with adequate cushioning."
Cons: "The drinks served in plastic cups were tiny."
Cons: "Can not really expect much on a short commuter flight."
Cons: "It was professional, no fuss but somehow slightly detached. I had no food only a water. A friendly inside crew."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed, staff wasn’t very helpful when I was getting rebooked"
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin crew were a little bit edgy. Not as pleasant as others on similar route."
Cons: "2.5h hours delay almost made me miss my second flight that day. Also agent didn't seem to know anything so wasn't able to help."
Pros: "The trip TO the United States was bearable."
Cons: "This flight was a complete disaster. I ended up b=on a different flight to Newark, as my flight to Chicago got canceled. Then that fight was unable to land, so I spent hours in baltimore, and missed my connecting flight to Brussels. By the time I finally arrived, 4 hours late, to Newark, I had to spend 2 hours in a line to get re-book, for a flight the next night. I was compensated for all this mess with a $10 food voucher, and had to get a cab from the airport to the closest and cheapest hotel. My flight to Brussels was uneventful, save one rude flight attendant, and I got to school a day late."
Pros: "It's funny that they try to sell you the entertainment .nobody buys it, nobody."
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "Nice flight crew Nice gate agents Flights were on-time"
Cons: "Seats are a little tight To select seats during online check-in cost $33 per seat"
Pros: "On time; uneventful flight. Perfect!"
Cons: "Instead of pretzels they handed out ranch flavored items; I have food allergies to seasonings. I prefer just plain pretzels"
Pros: "Arrived early and flight crew was super nice!"
Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "People only comment to complain. In my case, everything went smoothly and ahead of schedule. The pilots took advantage of tail winds and put us at the gate ten minutes ahead of schedule. The crew was professional, personable and did their best to make everyone as comfortable as possible."
Pros: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I'm finding it difficult to get a refund"
Pros: "Nothing. One flight attendant gave me a gingere when I was sick from landing and that was helpful."
Cons: "Compeltly ridiculous that you had to pay for every single thing. I think the only complimentary thing was cranberry juice and water. Paying for entertainment and wifi with seperate fees felt really cheap and tacky along with the plane itself. It was run down and looked and felt even more that way when you're competing with flights from companies like JetBlue where they work to make you feel comfortable and provide free entertainment. We also were an hour delayed and sat on the runway for an hour before we left due to too much traffic over Cuba. It felt as a customer that it was poor planning on the companies part and that that could have been avoided earlier. Companies that put effort into a comfortable flying experience and care about customer satisfaction will be getting my money in the future. United would be my last choice when make travel plans in the future."
Pros: "Given comp. seat upgrade, snack prices were not bad. Staff was courteous."
Cons: "I purchased 2 tickets and my sister and I were assigned seats that were not together, the upgraded seats did not recline, although the ones behind us were available, and the flight was not full. The fee for the TV service is ridiculously priced."
Pros: "Was good, but will be great if the wifi is free for all"
Cons: "Can't complain"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Rude staff. Very mean to me in the fact that I can't walk and needed assistance. Flight delayed for a ridiculous amount of time. I was not informed until last minute"
Pros: "This was my first time flying United and first time flying on a jet. The plane was small which was a little scary, not the huge Delta airplanes that I am accustomed to. However the ride was smooth and quick. I liked that they turned the lights off which made it super cozy, I slept like a baby and I never sleep when I fly! Both flights were great!"
Cons: "I can't complain at all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed seversl times for crew staffing issues. I missed my connection to LAX and therefore, missed a very important business meeting."
Pros: "The rate was great The captain was courteous The flight attendants was very courteous"
Cons: "The delays was awful I'm disabled wasn't offered no assistant to get from one terminal to the next because your flight delays we waited 3hours to go from Chicago to Boston then get on plane and wasn't offered but a swallow of soda that was poured out of a twelve ounce can split between three customers And I'm diabetic my sugar was low because the unexpected delay So that made a perfectly good trip awful"
Cons: "The fact that it was canceled and no help was given to rearrange itinerary."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled at the boarding time: the plane was ready without a flight crew causing the cancelation. Finding a replacement flight was very difficult and the Costomer service was not helpful. After showing I was active duty military, a seat "appeared" on the next flight out and I was put on standby for an earlier flight For that day. The earliest flight before then, wasn't until Tuesday the 29th. This was not acceptable."
Cons: "I loss an entire vacation day due to delays in flight departure time. For a 1st united airline flyer not nice."
Pros: "They got us into Chicago which nice. Also United was giving away free bottles of water for the holidays."
Pros: "The flight attendant ran out of regular sprite, ginger ale, and seltzer water by the time he reached the last row. Finally settled for water."
Pros: "I was going to Costa Rica That it was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Stuck in the last row in the plane next to the lavatories even though I had chosen a different seat online weeks before No seat reclining Flight attendant rude A passenger vomited everywhere (AND I MEAN EVERYWHERE) inside one of the lavatories and outside in the Isle next to and behind my row because he was drunk. Was not properly cleaned up and I could smell the stench of vomit for the entire flight."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I had to switch my flight to Denver, CO and fly through Delta."
Pros: "I liked that the airline gave me a complimentary flight change because I didn't realize I was crossing into another time zone to get to the air port so by the time I got through the traffic and to the airport, my flight was pretty much leaving. They were very quick to get everything rearranged for my new flight. I was very tearful. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like that it took me almost an hour to get through security, however that is probably why they say to be there two hours early. I also didn't like how hard it was to find where I was supposed to be dropped off for departures. It took me about 30 mins driving in circles trying to find the place to be dropped off for departures. I first went to the international side because my final destination was an international destination but then I realized that my first flight is domestic.... I'm a dork. :/ I wish they would tell you the exact directions how to get to the gate and could give you a live feed on estimated time it will take to get there. I should have called ahead of time to figure it out, but I want expecting it to be so hard."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Normal take off delays."
Pros: "United was effecient in the rebooking process"
Pros: "The free coffee?"
Cons: "Boarding took forever, there was no space in the over head bins. People just completely brain farted and stood in the aisles, unable to comprehend the lack of space."
Pros: "I was overall impressed. Both flights were early to the destination. All the flight crew were friendly. The planes were very clean."
Cons: "No food was offered, not even to purchase on a 3.5 hour flight. The $25 charge per bag is too high."
Cons: "Flight was delayed ended up switching to a Delta Flight."
Pros: "The crew were professional, helpful and friendly. The numbered boarding lines work really well."
Cons: "Although I was able to bring both of my bags on board because they were small, many people were forced to check theirs at the gate. The airline should tell people this ahead of time, or even have a 1-bag policy, rather than spring this surprise on people at the gate. The seats were too close together. It was impossible for me to find a comfortable sitting position. I'm not especially tall, but I could not extend my legs enough."
Pros: "Nothing was satisfactory"
Cons: "Charging double due to flight discrepancy. This might be my last time flying United. HORRIBLE customer service."
Pros: "VERY loud engine startup. Aside from that, superb!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
