Top 5 airlines serving Barcelona Barcelona-El Prat to Miami
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Had our luggage checked for connecting flight in Frankfurt"
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Pros: "The boarding was simple and easy. The crew was polite."
Cons: "The entertainment touchscreen is right in the headrest and everytine the person behind me wanted to do anything I could feel it. It was very irritating especially when I was able to fall asleep."
Pros: "Non eventful flight."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed by over 45 minutes because of some technical issues with the plane but the crew serving us was ever smiling and very courteous. They were making jokes and never once did i see them frown at any demand made by any passenger. The food was very good despite being plane food too!"
Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Pros: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"
Pros: "Got the exit row (great)!"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed but retrieving the bags took a long time. Short flight but food wasn’t appealing and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Pros: "The crew was great. It was only a short flight, so we only got a c0okie, but what a cookie!! Big and soft and super tasty. And the coffee was quite good. Germany has never been known for its superb coffee, but this coffee was very good. None of that fakey airline taste to it at all. Could easily be the gourmet coffee you'd serve at home. You DO serve gourmet coffee at home, right? And water and juice and then more water and more juice, all served up by very nice people--not just good service personnel, good people. Baggage pickup was quick and smooth--I travel with my cat, so pickup can be rocky. Nothing to it here."
Cons: "I liked everything, so am leaving this box completely blank. Completely, I tell you!! Stop reading this!!"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "small seat despite being in business class"
Pros: "Very nice crew, clean facilities, not too uncomfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight and the food was gross! Give option of pretzels or snack over a bad sandwich."
Cons: "They charged 40 Euro for baggage. On the charge again? Why this was not on any agreement International flights one baggage suppose to be free"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "Timing was on schedule"
Cons: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"

Cons: "Long lines and chaos at counters two hours waiting -- poor hotel provided-- poor food -- so awful. Now I hope we can get home today"
Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"
Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and rude. Also not very attentive. The crew on the first trip from Miami to Frankfurt in contrast was outstanding. I'm disappointed because this was not up to Lufthansa's standards."
Pros: "There were lots of out of the ordinary (read annoying) behavior. Of other passengers and the cabin crew responded patiently and professionally."
Cons: "Boarding did not proceed by rows as customary so boarding was a bit chaotic with everyone rushing to the gate. The reclining seats aee an issue. Although comfortable for the ones reclining they are uncomfortable and at times painful ( taller people) and makes watching the screen impossible when fully reclined."
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Older plane, uncomfortable seats. No gate boarding. Required a shuttle to plane parked on tarmac."
Pros: "The airline staff for Lufthansa were kind, courteous, and respectful! As mentioned, haven't flown in 30 years, let alone, never overseas, and I couldn't have had a better experience; especially being in economy seating! Would fly with Lufthansa again in a second, and recommended them to friends on Facebook!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Friendly, professional crew!"
Pros: "I like that everything is done fairly quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "It may be a cultural thing for some, but two of the flight attendants did not smile at all. Not even really an acknowledgement when I said hello to them. And I tried throughout the flight to see if it was just because they were too busy or simply did not hear or notice me. It's not a big deal now, but it can be if the whole staff were to become silent and non-interactive."
Pros: "It was definitely on time, service is good and it was a very nice flight."
Pros: "I like the service in general. Everything was great and the flight attendants where very helpful and kind. The food was good and the entertainment had all types of movies, music and games."

Cons: "My bag is approved carry-on size, and I travel weekly with it. The gate agent forced to check it which was unnecessary and unreasonable."

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "But leg room."
Cons: "Too hot"
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."

Pros: "Crew was polite but kept on speaking to me in German, I am American and only speak Finnish besides English, it was annoying"
Cons: "Having to wait over 90 minutes to debark the plane, this after weather pattern diverted us so much it added couple of hours to our flight, not fun at all. Also the gluten free food ordered did not show up so I got a yogurt the whole 13 hrs, with celiac it impossible to eat anything else."
Pros: "Helpfulness of the crew for special needs"
Cons: "Improve restrooms"
Pros: "The service on the plane was great!"
Cons: "The movie selection could improve."
Pros: "I HAVE NOT FLOWN MUCH ON LUFTHANSA IN RECENT YEARS BUT THIS TRIP WAS THE RIGHT PRICE (THE NEXT DAY IT WENT UP BY ALMOST $1000.00) AND I UPGRADED TO BETTER ECONOMY SEATS. THE RELATIVE CHARGE WAS WELL WORTH IT. a WIDER AND SOFTER SEAT MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE ON THESE LONG FLIGHTS."
Pros: "The food was excellent and service was professional and friendly"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "I loved the spaciousness and comfort of the seats. The crew was always very cheerful and went beyond to make us comfortable and attend to all our needs. The food was pretty good for airlines food and all our requests were immediately granted. I will only fly Lufthansa in the future."
Cons: "Entertainment was good but the movies were a little old. Would like to see an improvement in that category"
Pros: "Overall I would highly recommend the Lufthansa airlines to any of my friends and family. The flight was on time and we were able to board quickly without any delays. It was an 11 hrs flight and I was satisfied with the crew service (friendly and professional) and the comfort of the plane."

Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."

Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."

Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."
Pros: "Crew was very engaging and service was good."
Cons: "My seat was horrible. Right at the door, crammed, and no place to store my carry-on luggage."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."

Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog, but the staff was amazingly helpful to make sure everyone got to their destination."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Cons: "The flight from London to Miami was great! The one from Miami to Las Vegas was awful. No seat-back entertainment screens, not power outlets so you could watch on your own device, one bottle of water for a five hour flight, and ride, inattentive cabin crew. I should point out that while I booked through BA, both flights were operated by American Airlines."
Cons: "Food and wheelchair service dropping me off at inappropriate place & no wheelchair to continue through passport control to Heathrow express train"
Cons: "No food, no tv... nothing."
Cons: "The Barcelona airport was confusing to navigate. Poor signage. Limited restaurant options, and confusing to find them."
Pros: "We were able to pre-board with our toddler."
Cons: "The heat was on for the entire flight, it was miserable. The worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Cons: "Delayed my flight connection was missed and ba said they put me on another flight but they never did"
Pros: "I only gave the low rating on food and entertainment because there was no free food or entertainment on the flight. Overall, however, the flight was fine."
Cons: "No free beverage. At least give the passengers some water."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are not too comfortable"
Cons: "Flew into 1 concourse a few minutes late had to go through security checks and run to make boarding in another concourse. No place to use the restroom along the way, I will avoid Heathrow at all costs when traveling in the future."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, serving food, drinks and water very often"
Cons: "A 7 hour flight took 10+ hours. Plane was very old, very poor entertainment system, tiny screen, no place to charge your electronic devices, very narrow seats, poor leg room. I can go on but I will stop here."
Cons: "Movie quality was not great"
Pros: "Decent service and comfort."
Cons: "Dear wife luggage failed to arrive. Very disappointed after trip plan 2 years in the works."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Waiting 20 min to board , then waiting half an hour on the plane after that"
Cons: "Not sure if I am more unhappy with Kayak for not warning me or British Airways for charging me €75 for eached checked baggage. Even a sofa or tea cost money on this flight. Should think twice before booking this airline!"
Pros: "High Life magazine"
Cons: "No complementary beverages"
Pros: "Everything worked pretty well, and BA's staff was very correct. Seats are quite good, and flight wasn't full, which I greatly appreciated."
Cons: "It bothers me to have to pay for a glass of water. Still does not make any sense to me."
Cons: "I don't get no dinner on the flight from Miami to London Heathrow and I felt faint from hunger on board. When I complain to one of the flight crew ,we one hour and forty five minutes left to land,she gave me a pretzel bunch and a cup of tea."
Pros: "No issues with the size of my carry-on backpack, and a small backpack as a laptop bag."
Cons: "Only Amex credit cards accepted for in-flight food and beverage purchases."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The amount of legroom provided for an 8.5hr international flight was far too little."
Pros: "Explanation of why the flight was delayed"
Cons: "At checking they recommended that I check my carry on because the flight was full and it won't be enough space in the cabin. The flight was not full. Many people had their carry on with them on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the overall experience was pleasant!"
Cons: "Then I could not catch my London-Chicago Flight, so they put me on a Barcelona Charlotte AA flight and then Charlotte Chicago flight, which I had to run through customs to catch. But may luggage didn't make it. Overall it was one of those terrible experiences"
Cons: "They lost all 8 pieces of luggage we had. Then to submit a claim at the airport I had to wait on s line for over 2 hours because this airline seems to lose everyone's bags."
Pros: "No. Flight left late and could not get off when arrived in London. Missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Poor communication of issues at hand that caused flight delay. Poor handling of assisting us with missing our connecting flight. They attempted to give us orange slips to get us aboard but we all ran and jumped the buses for nothing as our flight left anyway. Staffing was not adequate for the stars we had to go through to get to our boarding gate. Then we had to go all the way back and rebook for a next day flight. We flew home American the next day which caused us to have extra costs for home and animal care as well as needing a limousine to get us to our home 1 hour away"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work on any of the seats."
Pros: "I Like the check in process, the punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "The food was terrible, they kept me waiting for my strolley on LHR for over half an hour!"
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Bathroom cleanliness. Entertainment system."
Pros: "I was very lucky and my flight wasn't totally full, so I got the whole row of seats to myself. Needless to say the flight was very comfortable. The Crew was very nice and attentive as well."
Cons: "Only problem was the flight was delayed about forty minutes, but I don't think that was in their control anyway."
Cons: "Would have paid dearly for a footrest"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good. They provided a lot of options at no additional cost. Some of the crew was pleasant."
Cons: "In all fairness to British airways this was actually "operated by AA" and their customer service leaves much to be desired. Traffic to get into the airport was the worst I've ever seen. When we finally arrived, Although we checked in prior to arrival, we still had to wait in line for over an hour to check in our bags! We told the agents three times our flight was boarding, however, they were almost nasty and would not expedite us. they finally started to call our flight and we were pulled from the line, even then it was very disorganized how we were processed. We had to run through security and the long terminal and along with others in our flight that had been in line, were the last to board as the flight was delayed waiting for us. One of the worst experiences ever. They really need to do something about their check in process as we were not the only ones subjected to these delays. The plane had technical problems landing and had to be towed in but thank God we made it."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Old plane. Worst amenities out of any international flight I've flown. Chaos. Miscommunication regarding departure gate. Fad to switch last minute. Very little communication abut this."
Pros: "The flight was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "It was a long flight. Had to return to the terminal after taxi-ing to the runway because someone on the plane had a medical issue. Nothing the airline could have done about that, but it made the flight that much longer..."
Cons: "this flight was 3 hours late due to late arrival of incoming plane. this was therefore known to the airline. we did not get any warning until we got to the airport when we were told and at that time i got an email. no earlier text or alert. travelling with kids this could have been avoided."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Wonderful service from crew; comfortable, highly recommend!"
Pros: "Great flight crew! Professional & friendly"
Cons: "Tight seating.Inability to choose seating prior to check in without paying."
Pros: "I tried to check in online but was prompted to check in at the airport. At the airport kiosk I checked in and got a terrible seat two rows from the back. Food was mediocre and entrainment fair. The flight crew were ok not exceptional. Aircraft was nice and clean. Other than poor seating the flight was smooth. I've had better flights overseas."
Cons: "See above I should asked for another seat there were plenty of vacancies."
Cons: "no food, no drinks because short flight"
Pros: "Very Good in flight service"
Pros: "A380 was great and quiet"
Cons: "Boarding was messy"
Pros: "I took the bus back and forth from SF to London. Overseas I am now in contemplation of only flying British Airways from now on. The ride is comfortable, enjoyable, entertaining, adequate space, excellent service, food and drinks are the best I have had, and exceptional services and attention. This goes for both flights. I have been recommending Britsh Airways over the last several weeks to pretty much everyone I know. My family and I will be looking to British Airways for overseas flights as a priority."
Cons: "Connecting flight thru Heathrow was too close for comfort. I just reached the gate at the end of boarding. If there had been a glitch at all I would have missed the flight."
Cons: "we were delayed an hour at the gate sitting in our seats"
Pros: "The trip was excellent"
Cons: "My bag did not arrive. I am not sure how to get reimbursed for the things I had to buy."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and attentive. Nice flight overall."
Cons: "DELAYED NO STAFF SUPPORT"
Cons: "Seat assignments kept disappearing It took 45 minutes at check-in to get seat assignments once again for the third time for my flight segments These people shouldn't be allowed to fly planes"
Cons: "Crew did not come around as often as needed. I had to ask for water after they hadn't been around for two hours."
Cons: "I arrived to the desk of British Airways already checked in. I only needed to drop off my bag. The attendant at the counter told me I was late although I was still 50 minutes from departure time. Unable to get on the flight, I then had to go to many other desk in order to rebook my flight home. One of the nice crew members of Finnair told me that it was not that I was late for my flight, it was that my flight was over booked and the airline had given my seat away. Also, because I had booked through a travel agency, I was only able to rebook through them. Kayak. Kayaks customer service told me I had to wait 24hours to see if I was eligible for a new flight. A total mess. I am very disgruntled with the service."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Much more but with this price you can not expect much!"
Pros: "On time, very polite."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight due to the fact that the TAP crew leaving Barcelona said there was “fog” and therefore, nearly half of the flight had the same connecting flight to London. On top of it, they had no other flights and put us up in a hotel instead."
Pros: "A good airline- I will use them again!"
Pros: "On this prop plane, the takeoff and landing was exceptionally smooth. Again, the crew gave outstanding service."
Cons: "All was perfect! Thank you."
Pros: "The better question is what did we not like."
Cons: "Careless staff, unorganized, rude, long lines with slow working agents. We were traveling with our three and six year old and started with a weather delay and then eventually a cancellation. We stood at the Barcelona airport from 7pm until 2:30am with our children. Nobody offered us food vouchers, taxi or hotel. We had to ask and only got a hotel which was an hour away and taxi on us costing us over $100 euro! Everything closed and our children ate cookies from a vending machine for dinner. Finally we got to our hotel after 3am and slept until 6:30am to catch another taxi on us back to the airport just to find out it’s delayed and we would miss our connection in Madrid back to Miami. We arrived the airport again at 9am and at 3pm we’re finally given food vouchers for our hungry children to eat something. American Airlines has a direct flight from Barcelona to Miami but they insisted they couldn’t do that for us and we’d again stay another night in Barcelona at a hotel. This would all be fine if we weren’t traveling with small children, they didn’t have school and we didn’t have to work and had extra money to pay for all the inconveniences. This was by far the worst experience we’ve had and will never choose Tap again for our travels!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "We had to pay extra for checked baggage which were not aware of earlier. The counter person told us we could have saved if we purchased it earlier online and would have saved us 15 euros per person"
Cons: "We travelled with 2 carry ones and one checked bag throughout our 2.5 week honeymoon. Check in agent suggested that we check all 3 of our bags since the flight was full. We did. The flight from BCN to LIS was delayed 2 hours at the gate, but we were told we could somehow still catch our flight from LIS to PDL. We trusted that was true. We arrived at LIS without a single garment of clothing (we checked all 3 bags through to PDL), and then realized we missed the flight to PDL. We stood in line for 3 HOURS at the TAP help desk, only to wait behind a group of very angry people who monopolized the staff. Once we told the agent our situation, he told us there were no more seats on any flight to PDL the next morning. Not only that, but he could not provide a hotel for us to spend the night. This is 2:30am, 3:30am BCN time. He told us to find our own hotel, but we do not have international phone plans, so we could not make the reservation ourselves. He had nowhere for us to sleep. Then he had us wait for his SATA associate to help us, and he put us on a flight to PDL the next day, but it was not direct! We had plans for the following day, a hotel reservation in Ponta Delgada that is NOT refundable, and now the final portion of our honeymoon is ruined. No one ever offered to give us vouchers for ANY costs or for the anxiety and total of 14 hours lost on the most important trip of our lives. Shameful."
Pros: "My husband has a mobility scooter and they handled it better than American Airlines and we flew first class!!!"
Pros: "Nice crew, tasty snack, new plane with comfortable seats"
Cons: "Huge bag charge for anything over 8 kg! Sign said last call 40 min before flight when agent told us to check board 30 min before flight for gate assignment!"
Pros: "The name on ticket had the wrong last name for second passenger and they were not helpful. Only solution was to purchase an additional ticket. Not part of my budget. Poor service from gotogate and TAP Portugal in Barcelona. Very upset and sad."

Cons: "The flight was delayed."

Pros: "Was able to sleep most of the flight and we took off on time"
Cons: "Checking a bag took almost an hour."
Pros: "Nothing. Staff unhelpful and unorganized."

Pros: "Five stars for TAP, good attention of its staff, good food and attention during the flight."

Cons: "Seats service people"
Pros: "The plane was bright, well-lit and clean. The crew was responsive."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Not really any entertainment"
Pros: "Service on the plane was very good on both flights, food was actually pretty good, and entertainment was varied and plentiful."
Cons: "Way too many lines. My passport was checked no less than 10 times from Barcelkne to Lisbon and in Boston. I was also "selected" at each airport "randomly" to check in more detail. I love security but some of these lines served no recognizable purpose. In Boston a guy is being paid to collect electronic copies of the passports. We had to wait in line to hand this guy papers he did. It review, or do anything with. Why did the customs guy not take that paperwork, eliminating a line and paying some guy to collect passport photos????"
Pros: "Crew, fairly easy boarding process"
Cons: "2.5 hour delayed departure, missed the Portugal National Team parade!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Well, it did leave on time."
Cons: "I knew the seat pitch in economy was tight, but nothing prepared me for how truly abysmal it is. I’m 6’1”. My knees were jammed into the seat pocket. The fun continued when the passenger in front of me reclined their seat. I had to angle both my knees to the side. Without a doubt the most uncomfortable flight I’ve ever done. On a side note, AC switched equipment on this flight several times. Each time the ‘system’ would split up our seats. I had to call in five separate times to pick new seats. Also, at the gate they were asking passengers to voluntarily check in carry-on as there may not be enough room on the aircraft. First time I’ve ever heard that."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Way too long of a flight not to be able to recline much, stretch your legs much or get comfortable. Miserable"
Cons: "No one told us the only inflight entertainment option was streaming via their app, until we were seated on the aircraft with no access to wifi."
Cons: "Extremely dirty planes. Rude staff."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "In-flight video (via app) was slow and unreliable. Seat comfort was lacking."
Cons: "On the way to Barcelona, We didn't have access to any online media during the flight because their wifi wasn't working properly and we couldn't download the app. On the return, we downloaded the app prior to boarding but the app failed to work properly!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 1hr after everyone got on board to wait for a few passengers who were on their way to the airport. It's unbelievable."
Pros: "Food was good and flight attendants were very professional. Our first time flying Air Canada and I was very impressed!"
Cons: "To pay so much for a transatlantic flight and have to pay $10 for an IPad on the 8 hour trip home??? It would be nice if even limited internet was included so we could use our own device. The worse experience was getting through customs at the airport in Barcelona on the way home. Only two agents available to stamp passports on a Sunday morning when the world's largest cruise ship (Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas) had docked earlier that morning? We arrived at the airport at 8:30 and no Air Canada agents were available to check us in until 9:00. After waiting to get through customs and we proceeded to our gate, our 11:45 flight was just beginning to load! Lots of shoving and people cutting line to avoid being late for their flight. I heard one person mention they had missed their flight, and I'm certain many others did as well. With the chaos and delay, I'm surprised altercations didn't happen. The airports/airlines need to work with the local authorities to avoid these delays and provide their customers better service."
Pros: "Air Canada needs to improve their check in process at the Barcelona airport. There were people everywhere waiting for way too long with no real lines or people to help explain where to go. More check in people are needed to improve this process. Once we got up to the front of the line (after about 1 1/2 hours) there was a short line for those who did not check in prior to getting in line - why would people who don't follow the process get an advantage?"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly. The flight attendants were attentive and very nice."
Cons: "There wasn't much to like. They left an hour late with no explanation and forced us to run through the airport to catch our connection, they lost my baggage, the in flight entertainment was awful. The Rouge Player had no current movies or TV and the food portions were very small for a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "I had an exit row seat so the extra room was much appreciated."
Cons: "Aircanada's method of multi zone boarding is a mess. Everyone queues up and blocks whatever zones actually can get on. The seat next to the exit door was freezing. The food was horrible. I understand airplane food is bad but this is some of the worst I have had. Our flight our was fine. There was no inflight entertainment for an 8+ hour flight - you had to rent iPads which is crazy these days. We were late to takeoff due to airport traffic which isn't the airlines fault but then because the customs baggage scanning system went down at Montreal my husband missed his connection - was eventually put on my flight after two trips to ticketing and three calls to aircanada but his bag never arrived in Chicago. We are still waiting for it."
Cons: "That was a first time i saw a paid entertainment system. That was a long-haul (9 hrs) flight. Either you pay and have an iPad with movies, music etc. or nothing. Very interesting."
Pros: "The Crew was the best people ever"
Cons: "Not about the flight but about the Kayak service, I bought the ensurance but it didnt let me change my flight anyway"
Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "It is the first international flight that do not have any television screens, music stations or any entertainment on board. Alcoholic beverages are not free! We sat in seats that cannot recline - for the whole flight from Barcelona to Toronto. Cabin crew did not keep the cabin clean. Although we flew Air Canada from Barcelona to Toronto and have not left the inside of the airport, we had to go through customs again and almost missed our flight to Atlanta due to that. Airport officials were rude; some of the crew members treated us with disrespect and not approachable. It is the worst international flight ever - even worse than some third world carriers that I used before."
Pros: "Flight was late. No device from air Canada"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. After boarding, it was another hour before the flight took off. I was seated next to a family with 2 cranky children. I chose this flight just because it was supposed to arrive in Miami at a decent time. Ended up sleep deprived at work the next day."
Cons: "No tvs. Delays. Worst airline ever"
Pros: "At least it was fast.."
Cons: "No space, no tv, no food, no music, no blanket, no water, nothing. Pack everything you need or bring your credit card"
Cons: "After boarding the flight, having to sit and wait long in the plane....flight delay before take off. no meal without having to pay for it offered only a small cup of juice/tea/coffee to sip on. Not even a light snack or a can of juice is too much to ask for, considering the cost and comfort cut backs to fly with Air Canada"
Cons: "* No animation screens during the flight * Available tablets but you had to pay * The electricity plugs weren't working so i couldn't recharge my computer"
Cons: "Delayed on Tarmac for 2 hours, one rude flight attendant. Took 4 hours for bags to come to arrival due to cancelled flight. No good communication"
Pros: "quick enough flight"
Cons: "no in-flight entertainment, not power outlets, lack of leg room"
Pros: "Clean CAbin"
Cons: "food and multiple delays - Lost Lugggage"
Pros: "Great boarding options...Zone 2. I love that."
Cons: "No issues on this flight....took a bit long to board, but overall it was fine. Nice crew. Your entertainment system suck!"
Pros: "We were delayed leaving Barcelona. Liked that Air Canada rebooked flights and kept us up to date on other flights with short connecting times."
Cons: "This is for Air Canada Rouge which is their low cost portion. Had outlets to charge but did not work or very slow to charge phones, no wifi available even to buy, flight attendants are young and inexperienced in handling questions about challenges. No entertainment on flights which I did not know until after my first flight to Venice with no entertainment (iPads were all rented out) or Wifi available for over eight hours. Bathrooms are old and several bathrooms did not have brighter lighting after you lock door."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 2 hours, seats very tight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly two hours. Gate signs were never updated. 7 gate attendants spent 1.5 hrs standing at the gate talking laughing and joking amoungst themselves. They appeared annoyed when anyone asked for an update. They finally announced they were waiting for a wheelchair to unload a passenger from the previous flight. They announced they were ready to board zone 1 and 2 and then did nothing for another 25 minutes. Funny when we finally boarded nobody ever saw a wheelchair go on or off the plane. Understand that flights are delayed but no updates or explanations and a gate crew that seemed annoyed that the passengers were disrupting their social time was unacceptable."
Cons: "My flight with Air Canada from Barcelona to the final destination of Atl was an awful experience. Our flight was delayed for no apparent reason causing my friend and I to miss our connecting flight. The Air Canada crew did re-book our connecting flight, however there was so much confusion on whether or not we had to go through customs since we landed in Montreal and our new flight was with Delta not Air Canada, that we ended up rushing through lines after lines of customs in the Montreal airport only to learn we could have avoided it all. On top of that, we were told multiple things about our baggage. To be safe we tried to go through customs and pick up our bags to be rechecked, but our bags weren't there. When we asked they said they had been put on our Delta flight, however in actuality they were stored in a closest. Needless to say, our bags did not travel with us and my friend and I had to spend hours at the Atl airport trying to locate our bags and arrange to have them flown to Atl and delivered to us. The flight itself was okay but their in flight entertainment options were awful. You either have to download the Air Canada app (which wouldnt download) or rent an Ipad for $10. The food wasn't great either. The crew members were nice but a little impatient and the bathrooms were gross. Overall, I won't fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely and the flight itself was fine and comfortable."
Cons: "As there were no screens on the seats, there were limited entertainment options. I was unable to download the Air Canada app before the flight due to very weak airport internet, and then was unable to rent an iPad because only credit cards were accepted: not cash or debit, or even VISA debit cards. As for boarding, the departing gate kept changing and being removed from the screen before the flight; also there was a 30 min boarding delay."
Cons: "The entertainment doesnt work well."
Pros: "The Crew´s attention"
Cons: "Is terrible that in a flight of 9 hours the airplane did not have TV programs or Films is deplorable we should rent an Ipad for enterteinment."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was not as good as american carriers and there were no movies. Also, no one told us that we would have to retrieve our bags and put them on belt so we had to go through line twice"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was bad. Flight were late and service was really bad. I will never fly Air Canada again!"
Pros: "Initially I chose Air Canada because the price was better than United. But the hassle was not worth it."
Cons: "Rouge plane was dirty. Flight attendants gave incorrect information regarding immigration forms that caused us problems after landing."
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't very kind. I needed some help to set my carry on luggage in the upper compartment and the male flight attendant just stranded there seeing me struggle."
Pros: "Crew was always very happy and helpful. Came by a lot for drinks and such"
Cons: "It was really cold, even with two blankets. Sometimes hard to hear the intercom. Food is kind of iffy"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get an aisle seat and have a decent amount of room. The food wasnt bad and there were plenty of bathrooms available on the plane."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight due to the flight to Toronto being delayed for some reason. No other flights were available to get me to my final destination for 24 hours and the gate team doesnt report to the gate until 20 minutes til boarding time. Not much in the way of customer assistance. Zero movies available and no wifi on the planes make for a long trip to Europe from N. America."
Pros: "It kept to schedule and didn't crash."
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge is a no-frills bare-bones subsidiary of Air Canada. BEWARE! Don't expect Air Canada levels of comfort or service."
Pros: "Flight had lots of empty seats, so it was easier to get comfortable. Flight attendants were kind and helpful."
Cons: "In air entertainment is supposedly through an app, so I can't speak to the quality because by the time I was in he plane I didn't have service to download it. It makes for a pretty long flight overseas when you have no movies to occupy you."
Cons: "To have to pay for entertainment"
Pros: "I got to Montreal"
Pros: "I liked the fare, hated everything else. Ended up wishing I would've just booked another, better airline since I paid for a seat upgrade on Air Canada Rouge and ended up paying the same rate as better airlines anyway!"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, had to bring my own iPad. Food was AWFUL. Didn't even eat it."
Pros: "Flight crew were helpful and friendly, if a bit rushed. But that's understandable."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Flight attendant also ignored my request for pasta and instead gave me a chicken, despite numerous attempts to correct it."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment, bad service"
Pros: "EXCELLENT LEG ROOM AND SPACE"
Cons: "THE FOOD SUCKS....EAT A DECENT MEAL BEFORE YOU BOARD. THANK GOD I WASNT HUNGRY OR I WOULD HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED."
Pros: "Boarding, food, flight attendant work"
Cons: "I always need real-time flight map"
Cons: "We purchased tickets for Air Canada, only to find out that it was their budget flight, Air Canada Rouge. No television on a long Trans Atlantic flight - How boring! Talk about "bait and switch"."
Cons: "everything-the food is horrible, no space, no monitor so what do you do on an 8 hour flight overseas? When we booked, we were not told that we would be flying Air Canada Rouge, but were told we would be flying a different type of plane with amenities. Talk about Bait and Switch. Will avoid Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "See my response to the trip from Denver to Barcelona. I'm not repeating myself. Terrible plain, terrible food. Cabin crew not as bad as gong from Toronto to Barcelona."
Cons: "See my response to the trip from Denver to Barcelona."
Cons: "No free movies. Tight leg room for an international flight. No complimentary beverages. What a huge difference from Lufthansa which we used to fly to Europe. Would avoid Air Canada Rouge of overseas travel."
