I don't think I'd do it again."

Cons: "No ac"

Due to this, we missed the connetcion flight to Tel Aviv.They took us to another air port(Attaturk) in Istanbul (1.5 hour driving) . They gave us only food vaucher and no compensation for the overall delay(7 hours!!!) 2.Icoud not order a Cosher foo at all TK flights web sitr.

Cons: "It was impossible to watch the films, the system was inaccessible"
Pros: "The Price!"
Cons: "Would have appreciated different breakfast choices."
Pros: "The entertainment options, food, toiletry bag"
Cons: "Stuardess service is very poor. For a 13 hour flight I would expect to have more than 2 beverage visits. Also, I ended up taking my requests to a first class stuardress since the ladies in coach didn't respond to me. I was also appalled to have my connecting flight delayed for over 24 hours without proper notification."
Pros: "Service was prompt but short. Stewards seemed stressed out."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken option. Friend does not eat eggplant (option #2)"
Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Most seats were broke, staff seemed grumpy, 3 out of 4 flights didn't have individual TVs, staff couldn't handle unruly passengers, etc. Won't be using Turkish Air anymore."
Pros: "The food was very good. The movie selection was outstanding"
Cons: "I showed up roughly an hour before the flight, as I had no bags to check in. The employees at the check in counter had already cleared out, so I was unable to get my boarding pass. Then when I called in, they were extremely unhelpful. They gave me no alternative options, and instead only listed out a ridiculous list of fees and said I they could get me on a flight a different day for a total cost that was greater than what I had paid for the entire round trip ticket. I asked to speak to a manager and they refused to connect me. I ended up buying a one way ticket home with another airline. I will not fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future, and I would definitely not recommend them to anyone. Just beware of this service if you see them listed as the cheapest option."
Cons: "Terrible Airline- cancelled flight and rescheduled long flight leg for another day without notice"
Pros: "They treat economy like you're in first class. They literally give you a menu of food. The entertainment is extensive and free. It's also likely your flight will be less than half full. Tons of empty seats to lay down and sleep."
Cons: "Boarding was behind and slow and very crowded in be area."
Pros: "You were fed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour"
Pros: "Service was awesome top to bottom"
Cons: "The business class cabin was hot on both flights. That seemed to be a common complaint among the passengers we talked to. The Economy cabin seemed to be set quite a bit cooler."
Pros: "I really like the fact that they still prepare food for their passengers, however, the quality of the food was less than average They prepare you with the eye mask and the slippers, and a thin sheet of blankets for longer flight, which was really nice. The seats are comfortable, and there are a larger selection of movies and songs to choose from which were also great. The flight was relatively stable. I didn't ever realize that we took off, maybe i was too tired to notice, i don't know."
Cons: "The boarding was really slow, it was not on time. The food was less than average, but better than not have any. It was hard to find assistance. The flight seemed a bit old, because we weren't able to turn off our light which caused some inconvenience."
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't find the reclining in seats"
Pros: "Really amazing service."
Pros: "food es very good, service also awesome,"
Cons: "very dirty plane."
Pros: "Fast, efficient, confortable, nice flight attendants, good food."

Pros: "Everything, starting with the complementary sweets they give you at the beginning of the flight"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Ran an hour late"
Pros: "The plane is almost brand new. The service, the food and the crew were fantastic."
Cons: "all the time same food and we believe the menu should change. the voice of the anounce and music is too much , it is bothering."
Cons: "This was not a business class seating arrangement"
Pros: "Everything was good on this flight, crew, and food."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Better food than most airlines. Appreciated the kit."
Cons: "They ran out of non-beef options for dinner. Flight attendants weren't the friendliest. No usb charger. Seats weren't very comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was at 60% capacity, I had an entire row for myself. Boarding was prompt and the crew was polite."
Cons: "I was asleep and the server didn't give me food. There was no option for the movie, it was fairly boring The seats were small"
Pros: "The crew and seats were both great"
Cons: "HAving live TV would have been great."
Cons: "Had no entertainment, asked the attendent, she called simebody, but it didn't help and she didn't bother to come and explain. Food was really bad, undercooked and cold."
Pros: "The two people who were in charge of boarding the plane were especially nice, efficient, and accommodating. I really really liked them."
Cons: "The flight was too warm."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Paid for first class, expected something better than coach. Our food choice was a ham sandwich, there were better choices but the crew took them for themselves so nothing left for the 1st class passengers. Similar situation on our eastbound flight the week earlier. I doubt if Delta knows or cares that this occurs. After paying more than twice the coach fare, we expect something better than a ham sandwich on a coast to coast flight."
Cons: "More communication on the flight delay"
Pros: "I love the Food was really good thanks guys!"
Cons: "Have the Free WiFi option will amazing"
Pros: "New long haul service is a real improvement in quality"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Great crew, great entertainment, came in early"
Cons: "Vegan options"
Pros: "The delta crew both ways between Portland and London was excellent! They saw to our every need and were smiling every air mile of the way. Plane"
Cons: "Need to have food choices available for those with allergies. Almost everything had gluten and soy in it and I am very allergic to those. I had to give away all snacks and most of my food. Even in comfort+ class the seats are tiny with little legroom. Also, please clean the bathroom every few hours"
Pros: "Just fine, beverage service was friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system was out the entire flight. The flight attendants were just talking to each other as we left, even when I tried to say thank you."
Pros: "Going back home to the US"
Cons: "I had 15 hours layover in Amsterdam so I got me a hotel.one hour after I got to the hotel I got a notification from Kayak app asking me to go get my bag from Schiphol. My bag was supposed to be directly shipped to PDX. I had to leave my hotel back to the airport and spend 2 hours trying to find it only to be told that it was going to PDX. I lost my $170 hotel room, over $70 for taxis and ended up spending the night on the floor at Schipol. I do not think I'll ever use Kayak again. The travel guarantee is a joke too."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Pros: "everything except in flight internet."
Cons: "Gogoinflight hasnt woked as it said it would on any flight on any airline for a year."
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time. Signage at PDX is good. Easy to find where you need to be"
Cons: "Layover, confusing mob line at checkin."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "I have never had a problem with this airlines. This flight was no exception"
Cons: "More space, but I am in economy and that's just life! I expect my hips to hurt after, again my problem not there's, if I wanted more room I would buy first class but I won't for a short trip."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess"
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Pros: "crew was very respectful and kind"
Cons: "Flight was moved to a different gate, then delayed. We were given the absolute last seat in the plane that could not recline- not the seats I had selected before hand."
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible food, no veg options, no leg room, seats barely recline"
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Cons: "Did not have the fruit and cheese plate."
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Cons: "Need more legroom"
Pros: "Food delicious-especially lasagne."
Pros: "Loved everything, the meal was good, spacious seats and friendly staff."
Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."
Pros: "Pilot was hot."
Cons: "4 hour maintenance delay. Arrived at 2 am, after boarding a different plane."
Pros: "Ditto from above"
Cons: "Ditto from above"
Pros: "On time, great service"
Pros: "Flight was the best we sat right behind first class so it wasn't a long wait to deplane. In flight entertainment was great to with a wide selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "Nothing was bad about the flight sorry"
Pros: "Great crew and aircraft"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "No food. Only snacks and very good snacks"
Pros: "Again, despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Again, Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."
Pros: "On time and very smooth boarding"
Pros: "Good service once I finally got on a plane."
Cons: "The alternative routing after my missed connection was not good and would have resulted in a very long travel day on a comparatively ill-equipped aircraft. So I stayed in Amsterdam on my own dime to take the same direct flight one day later."
Pros: "Good experience given that it was a long flight."
Cons: "How about meal service on the 5hr flight from Atlanta to Portland? The food for purchase options left much to be desired."
Pros: "The boarding agent took the scattered seat assignments of out party of six and got us all co-located - of her own initiative. I really appreciated that."
Pros: "I was seated in the first five rows; the flight attendants were truly outstanding."
Cons: "In a very modern Barcelona airport, traveling down and up flights of stairs to reach a bus to board the aircraft is a joke."
Pros: "On time, new airplane and good entertainment system"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See abo e"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, caring and personable."
Cons: "My seat's video monitor didn't work properly, despite crews attempts to reset it. Movie or anything was frozen at the advertisement. Worst part of flight was no ones fault--heavy snow conditions caused 1 1/2 hour back-up for de-icing. Only other complaint I also noticed on my last Delta flight--the volume on the captain's announcements needs to be turned up. Hard to hear much of what he said. His explanation of de-icing, and how it might cause an odor or even haziness in the cabin was very helpful so that I didn't worry when the odor happened. I do like Delta very much."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good food/service throughout the trip."
Cons: "The on-boarding in Barcelona was a little odd. Instead of calling boarding by groups or zones it was a free for all. That could have been better organized"
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and welcoming. Good entertainment system too keep busy during flight. Arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Seat are definitely getting smaller and not too comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "Hi, I couldnt make my flight as I was very ill and when I called to reschedule it, I was given a form to fill out and no help. So I am STILL stuck on Barcelona, trying to figure out how I can change my ticket and how much that will cost me. Why does it take a form? Why can't someone give me a price quote?"
Cons: "Both of my flights, to and from Europe were delayed. Missed both connections which caused us to get to our final destination hours late. Thing is, they don't even seem to care. We will never fly BA again"
Cons: "I booked the flight with Kayak and it showed the airline as Finnair, the flight was actually with American, no complains about it. The issue was that Kayak did not update me with the Flight number for American Airlines and kept sending me information about the flight with Finnair which was not going to actually take place. I had to actually call American and spend time with a Representative providing all the data to be able to get my American Airlines flight booking code so I could check in online. American as always was great! Shame on Kayak!"
Pros: "We moved due to job change and American would not work with us to Change a reservation."
Pros: "Wrong airline, sent me to wrong gate, almost missed the flight. If I wasn't lucky enough to need a wheelchair, I would probably still be in Phx! Not happy at all, to say the least. I had to grease the palms of about 7 different wheelchair pushers. A bad day all around."
Cons: "The touchscreen on the plane was awful, 10 touches to make it work at least."
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination."
Cons: "Unprofessional flight attendants, who bickered at each other AND at passengers. flight was late took forever for bags to hit the carousel terrible food"
Cons: "our flight was delayed, and no other options"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The plane was so old, the TV was high in the middle. Very kittle room for legs, and I am a small person. Very uncomfortable for an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "On schedule and met all my expectations."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the staff that served us. Very attentive! Very polite. Could not have been better."
Cons: "The seats worked well but showing their age. One seat across from me broke mid flight. The attendant did get it working. The controls are pretty easy to understand. Push a button and see what happens."
Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."
Pros: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old, seats uncomfortable like all the cushion in the seat had been worn out, and a bathroom was out of order so we had to wait in line for the other one that would quickly run out of paper towels."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "My luggage was lost!!! People were sympathetic but no apologies or compensation Also, we were forced to pay extra for our seats before we were able to print boarding passes. My husband and I were not able to sit together which was upsetting to me."
Pros: "Nothing unexpected happened"
Pros: "The service was good and the food was ok. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "That we didn't have our own screen to select our own movies."
Pros: "Brittish Airways is so professional, treats everyone as if they were in first class, served great food, and loved the open bar the whole flight!"
Cons: "Narrow seats . No plug in for music or phone .. Bare minimum for same cost as better flight"
Pros: "Great crew of airplane staff"
Pros: "No internet on long light!!!!"
Pros: "Crew helpful & friendly"
Cons: "Felt squished"
Cons: "Booked flights together yet sat apart.. kid kicking back of away just uncomfortable"
Cons: "Terminal at LAX requires a bus."
Pros: "Arrived 25 min EARLY for a change!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delay due to lack of communication with Philly airport"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "One crew member was very funny and helpful which unfortunately we forgot his name but he looks like Oscar from the Office if that helps. He was awesome! And the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "James. One of the crew members on our flight he was extremely rude and had no interest in helping you with putting your carry on away and if you have to put any effort he automatically says "you have to check this in" luckily my boyfriend got up and arrange the baggages easily and done. James was obnoxious, rude, and very unfriendly. The entertainment was absolutely terrible. It was a 10 hour flight the movie choices were slim to none. When I took a flight from New York to China and rode United Airlines we had every movie selection imaginable."
Cons: "Cancelled and put me on a flight over a day later with no hotel voucher"
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Limited snack options."
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "Did not get to sit with family"
Cons: "Having to pay extra 24 hours in advance for a seat. There were no available "free" seats 24 hours before flight time."
Pros: "Instead of going to Finnair we had to go to AA which was ok but confusing because we thought we were flying with Finnair"
Cons: "The flight was great"
Cons: "Flight delayed for two hours and then eventually cancelled!"
Pros: "The flight went very well, and the crew was helpful. The flight was very very cold. So it wasn't very comfortable. Felt like the temp could have been brought down just a bit."
Cons: "I was picked for a random TSA check."
Cons: "The crew was great, but we did not like that they made us keep the window shades shut during a daytime flight because of people wanting to watch movies. When we tried to open the shades to look out at the aerial views, they kept telling us to shut them so everyone else could watch TV. We paid the same as everyone else, and it is not fair that we could not enjoy seeing the clouds and the world below...to us that is the best "in flight" entertainment!"
Pros: "Crew maintained good attitude throughout a very tough flight."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic. Because there was no control on carryon baggage, the overhead bins were full and people were fighting for space. Air Conditioning on plane did not work on ground - and we were on ground for over an hour before we were cleared for take-off. In spite of heat and delay, we were not offered water or other drinks. Instead of walking onto the plane, we had to take a bus and then climb steps to the plane. This was true on both departure and arrival. Because of a broken bone in my foot I had asked for assistance. There was no assistance except for my companion."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in Philadelphia for several hours. After returning to the terminal we waited longer. We finally took off and flew to Portland. Upon arrival, we had to wait for a gate, even though this was in the middle of the night! Very disappointing flight. Arrived about three hours late."
Pros: "was on time"
Cons: "In business class, was supposed to be herringbone arrangement which are large seats and comfortable. I am not sure if they switches planes since my reservation, but the seating arrangements were different. They shuffled everyone up and no one was sitting next to their spouses/family. Also, the seats are horrific to lay on, that its a joke. Just sitting reclined and almost upright was better than trying to recline them. I don't like complaining about creature comforts, but when you pay extra like this and you think your getting one thing a don't, they should at elast acknowledge it."
Pros: "On time and efficient"
Cons: "The cabin crew did not seem to enjoy what they were doing. At times they appeared annoyed or rude, if you contacted them, or asked for anything."
Pros: "Beware this flight from Philly to Portland OR Ever since the merger American has cut corners and apparently used a smaller plane to make trip As such EVERY SINGLE TIME you book a "non stop" from Philly to Portland the plane has to a make an unannocued diversion stop in Minneapolis MN to refuel. I paid money for NON STOP. I have flown cross country dozens of times and never had to make unannounced stop for fuel. A friend of ours took exact same flight a week earlier and had same diversion issue so it's not a one time thing. I am calling for some sort of compensation for the 2 hours we were delayed in actually arriving in Portalnd due to this diversion they announced right before take off. The service on plane was subpar. The flight attendant loudly complained that we moved his lunch when we loaded our bags in overhead bins. Ohhh I'm sorry I thought I was the customer here paying for a service. Sorry to move your lunch over 6 inches to fit my carry on. Planes are old and decrepit. Apparently American can't afford check in equipment as the check in team had to manually announce names and seat numbers to each other to check all 150 passengers in. This is on top of the fact that my seats were switched when they went to a smaller plane. I booked 26F in the bigger plane which was 3/4 way back. When they switched to the smaller plane 26F was now the last row meaning I couldnt recline my seat. Awesome. Overall an absolutely horrible experience. I won't ever fly American again."
Cons: "Nothing. Poor service. Poor amenities. Poor equipment. Poor customer experience. Never again. Ever."
Pros: "Excellent experience using kayak"
Cons: "Nothing negative to say"
Pros: "Nice flight and crew was good. Liked the reasonable legroom since I'm 6'4" tall."
Cons: "No entertainment. No overhead lights to read by since the entertainment did not work. Can't sleep on plane so became boring with not able to easily see my reading material."
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: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Cons: "To small of plane."
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: "- On-time departure, attentive staff and good selection of entertainment to pass 5 hours of travel time - Love the pre-boarding for families with kids - Good overheard space for carry-on bags - flight was not way overbooked and no one had to scramble for space"
Cons: "- Narrow leg room - relaxing in the economy class was challenging (but not surprising experience)"
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: "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."
Pros: "Wow these guys balance MANY flight changes and seat changes with professional and humor that all the passengers appreciated"
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."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Air Canada worked hard to get people where they needed to be but security was somewhat difficult although understandable"
Pros: "Good onboard entertainment"
Cons: "Overhead cabin extremely small compare to US planes"
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"
Pros: "The only thing I liked is the fact that I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I did not like the three house delay in Toronto. And, of course, we were always told, it will be just a few more minutes each time so for three hours we were stuck, milling around @ the gate.....well actually between two gates because they kept changing gates.......waiting for the flight. If I'd know it was going to be 3 hours, I would have maybe gotten some food and wandered away to find a place that had a spot to sit. Instead, standing on one foot and then the other, hungry for three house while Air Canada got their #@%*# together and found a plane that actually functioned appropriately."
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 final leg of our travel boarded over 2 hours late. No compensation given for that. Two planes were declared not fly worthy-low confidence. While not Air Canada's responsibility, Toronto's Pearson Airport was awful. We went through many airports on our travels and this stood out as the worst. Constant security checks that seemed unnecessary. Poor line management. Not enough security/immigration kiosks. Very expensive food. During our 2+hour delay for boarding, we observed constant gate changes for other flights. Flight organization seems poor."
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: "That this flight had entertain system that was on broad. Did not have to down load or use your horrible app."
Cons: "You should provide food or snacks for flights over 2hours with no charge. We were only offered a drink. Some people do not carry credit cards to purchase items."
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: "Seats were comfortable and I was able to sleep for most of the flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed several times and the gate was also changed. I recognize that safety is important, but passengers should be offered snacks when their flight is delayed for several hours."
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."
Cons: "The pressurization of the cabin was very uncomfortable for me. I fly a lot and only notice this like one in 30 flights. I was very swollen after and felt the pressure during the flight."
Pros: "Had the good fortune of an under-booked flight, allowing more space to spread out."
Cons: "Flight departed about 75 minutes behind schedule, but if that was necessary to ensure a safe flight, I'm fine with the delay. We still make our connection, thanks to prompt assistance at the airport."
Cons: "No viewing screens and fewer selections of movies from air canada app compared with selection from vancouver to tokyo. I don't know why our return trip was so different."
Cons: "Not even a pretzel with a soft drink or coffee. Also coffee was lukewarm."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and could recline more than other planes. Had entertainment in the headrests."
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"
Pros: "Again, I felt we had excellent service. It was a small plane and one steward, and she did everything!"
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."
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."
Pros: "Short, quick and convenient"
Pros: "My legs barely fit, but it was possible to sit without my knees hitting the seat"
Cons: "No movies, no air vents, reading lights only work sometimes"
Pros: "It was alright, just not much entertainment on a small plane"
Cons: "No enough things to entertain me and the seats were somewhat uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, decent entertainment choices."
Cons: "One the first part of my journey, our Air Canada flight was running over an hour late, which caused us to miss our connection in Zurich by about 3 minutes. The gate agents weren't all that helpful, and then the re-bookng desk in Zurich (not Air Canada's fault) was horrifyingly bad. We ended up missing a whole day in Barcelona. Then, the flight back from Barcelona to Toronto was also late, causing us to again miss our flight home to Houston. Again, the gate agents were completely confusing, leading us to initially believe we could make our flight, so we ran with suitcases only to learn that we hand't made it and that we might not even get out that night (we ultimately did). Our final flight was also late."
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Typical noisy turbo prop plane. It was an hour late."
Pros: "Short, brief flight."
Cons: "Boarding the plane outside in the rain w no cover"
Pros: "Quick flight, they allowed you to used devices in airplane mode the whole trip"
Cons: "They seemed to have no clue what was going on having two different people come to run the platform, so one just left. Slow boarding."
Pros: "Flight attendant was so fun! He had a Christmas jingle for all of the safety lecture!!"
Cons: "The seats are so squashed in in economy it was really hard to get comfortable. The inflight entertaining on the screens was rubbish. The app didn’t work with the movies. Some of he crew were lovely, and some were just ok."
Pros: "Our flight was 20 minutes lite but the flight crew was Great at letting us know what was going on."
Pros: "The older planes of United Airlines could use some remodeling. The entertainment system with controls in the middle of the arm rest where the elbow rests is such a bad idea, didn't even bother with this crappy unintuitive system. It was annoying and flashy with bright advertisements or something popping up on a night time flight just sooooooo annoying, turning it off was not intuitive and had to ask the flight attendants how to turn it off during their very busy work of handing out packages with five miniature pretzels and drinks to the passengers, was happy to get a whole cab of juice to myself though."
Cons: "Again, seats are too close front to back."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. Service was prompt and excellent"
Cons: "Excessively long layovers. I came home with 3 broken ribs and had to endure a 11 hour layover in Japan and another 6 hour layover in San Francisco."
Cons: "Upon approach we were suddenly deverted to Seattle. I had a few issues. Number one you could not hear the pilot so that made it worse. The lack of communication was horrible. I have been on flights when there has been clarity given a change in plans but this was bad. We sat at the gate for an hour and a half, again no real communication, the fligh attendant t hope was joking when he said there was a half a bottle left for the whole plane...much later we were served water. Announcements were made but no clarity. We were told to collect baggage at number 2. Get a voucher for a hotel. After deplann9ng about 25 of us stood in line at the customer service desk where there were two staff working slowly. Then after an hour they announced we were in the wrong place, couldn't that have been explained earlier? Once we made our way out of the terminal to the ticket count the line was all the way down the hall. still with little info we waited. We landed at the alternate airport at 945, at 130am I had my vouchers, the food not useful until the following day, the hotels were full, no one picked up the phone for the shuttle bus to the hotels. I finally elected to sleep at the airport on a bench. We had actually all been reassigned a flight on our same plane. So I am not sure why we had to wait in line all that time. Our bags were not removed from the plane an irritated baggage claim attendant told me. It was a mess. The flight the next morning was fine, short, without problems for me. united needs to work on its communications. It would have been helpful to have someone out side running the line giving out info. And at customer service they should have been paying attention to their line. Would have been helpful."
Cons: "Had to rebook, flying first to Munich then to Newark. Arrived home 6 hours later than should have."
Pros: "Excellent as expected."
Pros: "Crew was great even on overnight flight"
Cons: "Horrible delays and reboarding and then none of the crew tried to make anything better. My flight attendant practically threw one of the cheap bags of snacks at me"
Pros: "On time and people nice"
Cons: "Everything. Very good"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great, and the food was decent."
Cons: "The seat were really uncomfortable."
Cons: "The refreshments should be better than a tiny packet of pretzels."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, all smiles and very kind."
Cons: "The United staff at the gate desk were terrible. Very rude, unwilling to take care of customer requests or even try to show any customer service."
Cons: "Didnt respected the "extra legroom" I bought in All my flights in this trip. It was the same as seating in the last row. Go to KLM and learn not to steal extra money."
Pros: "I was put in a hotel so I could sleep after I missed my connecting flights due to the seven hour delay"
Cons: "I had a seven hour delay and missed my connecting flights in the United States."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome; entertainment was very good (lots of movies and played computer chess); ample drink service."
Cons: "Food in main meal was disappointing. Was like cafeteria food. (However, toward end of flight we had a sandwich which was actually pretty good.)"
Cons: "It was delayed by 3 hrs"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to me while I was boarding. There was room for my carry on in the overhead compartment but she told me I had to keep my bag under the seat in front of me. There was also an extremely overweight person next to me, I couldn't lean back.I had to ride the entire flight on the edge of the seat stooped over. They should have made the large man buy 2 seats."
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."

Pros: "Boarding, economy plus"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was maybe the best crew I've ever had in a flight. Extremely friendly and personable."
Cons: "Wifi and entertainment was not available I this flight"
Pros: "The flight crew apologized and kept everyone informed."
Cons: "The plane was having mechanical problems. Once it was determined that the problem couldn't be fixed it took the airline quite some time to locate a new plane. They should have started working to identify a new plane sooner. Ended up arriving in Portland after 3 am."
Pros: "Eplenty of leg room. Very nice flight, no complaints,nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "Everything costs money on top of the tickets I purchased. To compete with other airlines they are going to have to start including food, baggage, and entertainment for free especially on international flights."
Cons: "My seat was changed within a half hour of my flight and I wasn't notified until right before I boarded and had to refresh my e-ticket. I wouldn't have waited for group 5, when in reality I was group 3. and then because of this I had to turn over my carryon because no room for group 5 carryons. Also I like to have an aisle seat, and was squished into a window seat."
Pros: "Lmnot full flight"
Pros: "It's helps when the plane has extra seats"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment that I could see?"
Cons: "It was an enjoyable trip, no complaints whatsoever."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Only one free snack option and I don't like ranch flavor. A bag of popped corn is $4"
Cons: "The seats didnt have a lot or room."
Cons: "Why does it take 45 minutes to board a plane? Way too long."
Pros: "3 seats shared by 2 psgngrs. Clear window."
Cons: "Couldn't give me a 1st class upgrade for NO reason??? I said "Please""
Pros: "As a pilot i don't care about the food, never eat it. I care about safe aviating and that we had all the way down to minimums into New Orleans."
Cons: "Don't much like being treated like cattle, but compared to flying my own aircraft this is practically free and totally safe."
Pros: "I upgraded to first class, which made the flight much more comfortable. The crew were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I avoid flying whenever possible, as it is generally not a pleasant experience. Boarding was a mess."
Pros: "vinyl not cloth seats"
Cons: "The "free" movie service offered did not work on the flight to or from our destination. The seats on United seem smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Once we finally got a flight, because this one was delayed too, it was nice. The crew were friendly and helpful and made sure I was comfortable. Boarding went quickly and I was happy to get moving."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed one hour."
Pros: "Thank you for using Boeing aircraft! Akong with being an American made aircraft,even the small 737 is so much larger and comfortable than the any Airbus, sure makes your flight more comfortable and user friendly with the necessary leg room and overhead luggage compartment. My girlfriend and I just took a flight to Hawaii using American Airlines, and we were disappointed to get an Airbus every leg of the trip. I am 6'4" and those Airbuses have no comfort side to side or front to back, and I always have to see my chiropractor afterwards. You can't even get small carryons into their tiny overhead luggage compartments. I have flown United Airlines before and remembered that most of your aircraft were Boeing, so I chose this trip with you. Very comfortable flight and I look forward to my return trip. I will continue to Fky United Airlines from now on. And thank you for the new safety instructions video. It catches your eye and keeps you paying attention, and has humor too. Thanks again everyone at United"
Pros: "Horrible Delay and inaccurate time updates.. they postponed for 4 hours while giving hope every half an hour"
Pros: "Loved the baggage options with carry on baggage. So convenient."
Cons: "The seating was tight in economy. Hard to stretch."
Cons: "This was the only flight on United this week that wasn't over-booked. Still, seats were small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The seats in this old Boeing 737 are a lot better than the torture devices in the new airbus airplanes. The fact that the plane was not full meant there was enough room that the experience in coach was not literally painful as it had been on the Airbus leg into Denver from DFW."
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Cons: "Thanks for the upgrade"
Cons: "Not comfy"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, boarding was smooth."
