Cons: "Avianca food in national flights is non existing. Not even for purchase. Other than that flight was pretty good indeed."
Cons: "I would have appreciated some better communication (also in English) about the turbulence throughout the flight -- this starts with the pilot. How long to expect these pockets to last, etc. It's quite unnerving and uncomfortable to have the turbulence."
Cons: "Plane departed late. And leaving out of Barranquillla we were boarded to stay at the plane for over 50 mins. By the tune we were going onboard, crew knew we had to wait in the plane."

Cons: "Airport is being remodeled and was disorganized. You could barely hear the loud speaker announcements regarding flights. No monitors available with flight info."
Cons: "I was completely rerouted at the last minute to take 3 flights instead of just one and completely missed all of my other connections. Avianca forced to to travel for over 36 hours and continued to have all of my rerouted flights delayed. It was the worst travel experience of my life and i received no help or compensation for missing all of my other flights. All thy gave me was one stale muffin. I will never fly with this airline again."

Pros: "CABIN GOOD SERVICE, STAFF VERY KIND ALWAYS SMILING. ON TIME."
Pros: "Service was great"

Cons: "Bad service, worst customer service, we asked for vegetarian meals and never served even though they were confirmed."
Cons: "One of my suitcases didn't make it to my final destination and was found still in Bogota a day later making my arrival home very stressful and upsetting. I had medicine and important items in my suitcase and could only retrieve them 2 days later."

Cons: "They don’t want to give you a whole can of soda or juice. Instead they give you a little tiny cup expecting passengers to calm the thirst with that."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely. Crew was ok."
Cons: "Lousy food. Small, old aircraft (737). No individual screens, no phone chargers, asked for a repeat hot dish and was told yes, but never got it. It lacks behind many other carriers. I was expecting much better."

Cons: "We love everything. Thanks"

Pros: "The food and cabin service was great."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. They would only let 200 or so people sit in a small area meant for 75. The airport security then made us fo through a second screening. They took our drinks away. Afterwards, half tbe people had nowhere to sit. We had to stay in or section, we could not leave to go to the bathroom or go get anything to drink with out being screened again. This process started about 1 hour and 45 minutes before the flight. The technology in the flight was old, we were not able to see where our flight was in it travel path."

Cons: "wierdos on the plane"
Pros: "2 free bags, free food d, free booze"
Pros: "Flight crew. Berry nice"
Cons: "To many kid's crime on the 5hr flight"

I have mobility issues and they made sure I could safely get up to the restroom and to stretch my legs when I needed to. I will definitely fly Copa again."
Pros: "The flight was safe and comfortable."
Cons: "The connection flight was delayed, the gate at our connection was switched (meaning we had to go through security 2 extra times), neither flight had individual TV screens, and a vegetarian option was not available by default-as it had been on the flight there."
Cons: "The seat was too small. I am 5' 5" and 135 lb and it felt awfully small and uncomfortable. Even for a smaller plane and less time, I was not willing to accept it."
Pros: "Timeliness, food, good price for a non-stop flight."
Cons: "Not allowed to bring full water bottles on flights from Panama and crew didn't provide enough water service during flight."

Pros: "All the way it should be!"
Pros: "The flight & the attendants were all great - the food was good & the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost an 1 hr. waiting for the airport to load the luggage. I could not understand the person making the announcements on the plane. It was garbled & so none of us really knew what he said on any of his announcements, We arrived at D.C. & we did not get our luggage. They said at the D.C. airport we would receive an email within 24 hours regarding our luggage. We didn't. They gave us a # to call - no one answered that #. We were supposed to get an email with our case # - we didn't. We were told on the plane we would get a bag of necessities - but we didn't. My husband had to keep calling different #'s to try to get ahold of someone to tell them about our luggage."
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room, very good food provided."
Cons: "additional xray at gate and requirement to leave all water bottle behind."

Cons: "Seats did not recline. There was no notification of this when selecting seats."
Cons: "We were faced with many difficulties throughout the process including delays at every stage (plane boarding, takeoff, bus shuttles, etc.) of four different flights. The flight to Panama City was a significantly more enjoyable experience, but the return trip was absolutely miserable. After being boarded, we waited on the runway with no explanation for over a half hour. Then the flight staff came through with a very mediocre dinner and drink; however, they never came back for anything else until the customs form, and any attempts to flag them down were fruitless. When I finally got their attention, I requested water, and never received it. It was an incredibly frustrating and thirsty experience."
Pros: "everything was great."
Cons: "the AC on the Guatemalan Airport"
Pros: "Good order and efficient."
Cons: "All fine with me."
Cons: "Almost everything. This airline charges normal fees and offers low cost service. Very bad"

Cons: "I would like to travel with this airline because is an excellent"
Pros: "Flight on time, nice people"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable we were a party of 2 but got separated seats 10 rows further down fron another one"
Pros: "The leg place and reclining chair"
Pros: "Wonderful people, great attitudes, and the experience I’ve come to expect."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed on the previous leg of trip, so I didn't have it on arrival in Cusco. Also, after booking I was unable to modify the reservation to add 1 checked bag, so I had to pay a large fee at the airport."
Cons: "La temperatura interna dentro del avión era muy baja. Ni siquiera tenían una manta en todo el avión, la azafata intentó buscar una y dijo que NO tenía. El resfrío es camino por ese motivo. Y la comida era un pedazo de pan con algún tipo de fiambre dentro , sin gusto y pura Harina."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough"
Cons: "Departure time. Vessel was really old. Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "The temperature should be a bit warmer"
Cons: "Yes the boarding it was terrible"
Pros: "Excellent price and value. Great service both before and after travelling with an infant"
Cons: "Food quality could be better"
Pros: "Good service and food. Though food tray was small. not very many choices. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "The boarding process in Lima was chaotic. I was to continue on the same plane from Miami and Lima to Buenos Aires, however, nobody mentioned I could stay on the same aircraft, so they made me go off the plane out the arriving area hall, again through security, which was a hassle, almost forgot my wrist watch..... all that to end up in the same gate to board the same plane. a total waste of time and energy...."
Cons: "I actually tried to cancel this flight 5 hours after booking it and was not able to. I wanted to book something before prices changed and was not able to go. When trying to cancel I was hung up or disconnected from 6 times. Each time calling back with 10-15 of wait time. Finally got through and was told it's non refundable. Why kayak even deals with companies like this I have no idea. I finally cancelled and I'm still getting emails aasking how my flight was."
Pros: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Seat pitch"
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."
Cons: "Breakfast is too early, as soon as take off they serve. it should be before landing."
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and unhelpful. I will fly Avianca on domestic flights in Colombia"
Pros: "Being on a plane!"
Cons: "Having our initial flight delayed by 8 hours for a vague technical problem and given no info."
Pros: "Was cold so requested a blanket, was told we will see ..Blankets were given to passengers in the front seat but I was ignored. I usually carry a warm scarf so do not need airline blankets."
Cons: "No issues will travel on this airline again."
Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"
Pros: "Could access entertainment as soon as I was seated."
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized and not on time. My seat assignment was changed upon boarding the plane. They had assigned 3 people to my seat which was an isle seat I had chosen upon purchasing my ticket 5 months prior. I was changed to a middle seat. They had an extra (makeshift) security check point on the actual boarding ramp. They made everyone open their carry-on bags and suitcases on folding tables just before entering the plane. They also took beverages bought at the gift shops, right before getting on the plane which was unusual. Overall ground crew was not very customer service oriented. In flight crew was better."
Cons: "Hidden baggage fees. Extra fee to check in a bag was not disclosed at the moment I purchased my ticket. This airline doesn't even provide water to passengers. It's as stingy as it gets among all other airlines I've flow and value for money is poor."
Pros: "Normally, getting on a plane in Colombia is an absolute nightmare. People pushing, standing right next to you, when you get on the plane all the old women who do not know how to read always walk to the back of the plane when they're supposed to be sitting in seat 7? Been there? Seen that? Yes ! Seen it a million times. What makes this particular flight so unbelievable, and maybe it was just a training day because there was a lot of airline personnel at the check in kiosk, but I have never processed on to a flight in Columbia, given up my baggage, and be walking to the gate so fast in my life! I truly hope this is something that will become standard, and I pray to God that the other airlines especially Viva will learn how to do!"
Cons: "Overall very good, good crew... minus point.. seats SO tiny, it makes Asian airline economy seats feel like 1st class!"
Pros: "We arrived safely, there was no major problems and the crew was great."
Cons: "They changed my flight without previous notice to an earlier one, it was for around 20 min earlier but still they should send you a notice. Now they charge you for everything you eat, before they gave you a little snack. Also, there's traffic on both airports so that's something unpleasant too."
Pros: "Had pillows and blankets"
Cons: "TV monitor did not work They asked if I would like something to drink I asked for a Coke and they said they didn't have any on the bevrage truck twenty minutes later I received the coke"
Pros: "The crew is fantastic the food is great the airplane is new"
Cons: "Cannot ask for anything more"
Pros: "Good short"
Cons: "Better sandwich"
Pros: "Enjoyed my first trip on LATAM."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"
Pros: "I don't know that I like anything"
Cons: "The food on this plane is awful. All the pork being served is simply unfair. What about serving turkey sandwiches as an alternative to red meat or pork? The children roam about freely and it's quite uncomfortable. The seats are to close for such a long flight. I really can't get the disgusting dishes out of my mind."
Cons: "Everything. We never made it to the last flight because they cancelled our flight home, stranding us (myself, husband and 2 small children) in Ecuador. I have traveled extensively for almost 20 years and have NEVER dealt with such a terrible company with such shady employees. It was unbelievable and we aren't the only ones. Just take a peek at their social media accounts. They don't allow reviews anymore but there is a community of people who have been stranded in South America by LATAM and the link is easily found. They seem to have a ploy to try and get people to buy extra tickets. Seriously a scam. Stay away!"
Pros: "I have bought a ticket from To Aeroparque Jorge Newvery; and they cancelled the flight and sent me to Ezeiza without prior inform, concent and without any compensation."
Cons: "My checked bag never arrived at my destination. The only clothes I have are the clothes I'm wearing."
Pros: "muy amables"
Cons: "tuve problemas para hacer el check in on line por problemas con el sistema y tuve que hacerlo por teléfono. No conseguí los asientos que hubiera querido. Los que están en tránsito deberían permitirles bajar del avión antes para poder llegar en hora al otro vuelo. Sugiero que la tripulación informe a los pasajeros en tránsito sobre dónde dirigirse según el vuelo siguiente"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."
Internet connection to watch media was very spotty.
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Cons: "One of the crew at the airplane was really rude was a Male. He needs be more sensitive with special needs passengers."
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the turbulence was minimal. Overall a smooth flight, and the attention of the flight attendants was great. We arrived about 25 minutes earlier than what we had to, which was great."
Cons: "Having a variety of food options would be nice."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Pros: "Crew was spectacular"
Cons: "If it had been on time"
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Pros: "The crew were nice, glad I paid for the extra legroom."
Cons: "The food was only so-so, but it’s only a short flight so you can’t expect too much."
Pros: "Very helpful crew."
Cons: "Too often the video screen I’m given doesn’t charge up and it has to be replaced mid flight. This happened again during this flight when 2 screens didn’t charge and had to be replaced before the movie ended. The crew was helpful, but this problem is annoying."
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Pros: "On time and quick boarding."
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Pros: "They seem to have more time for the passengers then other airlines do"
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "It had 1980 common program and not an in seat outdated"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight attends were slightly curt."
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Pros: "American airlines is located in a small terminal at CDG which works to its advantage. Compared to other airlines, getting to the US from Paris is a lot easier. The airplane was brand new, entertainment on board is the best I've seen in a long time. In Chicago, clearing immigration and customs was a breeze, the airport is very well designed for international travelers."
Cons: "Deben explicar con claridad las políticas de equipaje en vuelos operados por American Airlines."
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Cons: "Canceled flight due to hurricane Irma and couldn't book me on a flight until 5 days later, had to buy an overpriced ticket on a different airline and still waiting for refund."
Cons: "Slight delay taking off due to lack of personnel at Jackson airport. They did not arrive until 600 AM. Flight was to leave at 550 AM"
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Cons: "No volé en LATAM si no en AA y en esta compañía al principio no sabían sobre mi reserva y cuando si, no pude hacer el checking online, sino solo en el aeropuerto , en ambos vuelos"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Cons: "The late departure from Baranquilla cause many people to miss connections after passing through immigration in Miami."
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Check-in went fairly smoothly."
Cons: "Crew (stewardess' were quite crabby)."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"
Generally friendly. Entertainment system did not work for entire flight.
First of all, when I booked it shows one Bag 23kg included and when I checked in I have to pay for, that's called crooks! Secondly, seat like riding in a bus all night can't move much, no recliner. Food, boring salsa/ chicken!!! I asked some milk I guess they gave me an old dated I hardly reach the $@% all day I had stomach ake, thought was Covid back...
Entertainment system didn’t work.
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "Entertainment system was down for the entire flight"
Pros: "great seating and food. service was excellent"
Cons: "low resolution screen makes a movie not enjoyable boarding was mediocre, we arrived late and the gate didnt know we were coming. AirCanada had already rebooked me for flight 28h later..which was ridicules. Immediate compensation was the upgrade from Premium to First. Thank you."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Pros: "Very happy with my trip"
Cons: "My lineup in USA entry line was ridiculous and I missed my boarding time because it was as hard to get the air Canada attendants attention so I ended up waiting 40 minutes anxious about missing my plane. Their kiosks weren’t working proper hence the longer line."
Cons: "Delayed Flight, barely made it onto my connecting flight."
Cons: "7:05am Flight got cancelled and they saw fit to rebook us on a 20:30pm flight.. decided to reroute us to anotjer city in canada and down to a different airport in DC Lost my luggage from time i checked it it at 0500am yo time dflight was cancelled and rebooked at 0700. And to fike claim and travrl without jt. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "Nice crew and service, I ate all the food :) lots of new movies !"
Cons: "I guess it is a good thing for the airline because the plane was full, although it was crowded to me."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
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"
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Cons: "After taking Air Canada to Toronto, this Air Canada flight from Toronto to Orlando was a shock- no back-of-seat tv screens, no entertainment choice, no meals provided, less space, less comfortable."
Pros: "I was originally impressed with Westjet's notification to check in before my flight, I was also prompted to download their app which sped up the process and was very user friendly. The airport staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "This was a really crowded flight, the boarding gate area was too small to accomodate all the passengers. The plane itself wasn't the newest, we were all packed like sardines in a can for about 6 hours. NO entertainment, food or drinks."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "I got to my destination an hour after I was supposed to"
Pros: "They afford a civil and enhanced trip on an Express flight. Something AA and other airlines consistently fail to do."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, considering there were just over two hundred passengers to manage. The crew was excellent: responsive, courteous and proactive. Entertainment: Overall plenty of options though some were dated. Food: surprisingly good, and COMPLIMENTARY. Didn't have to pay extra."
Cons: "Coach is CRAMPED. And on a 14-hour flight, that's important.."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Cons: "I was unable to get a seat at check-in. The flight was overbooked and I had to spend 2 hours arguing with the attendant to get a seat. The attendant finally started arguing with me. Very unprofessional and unacceptable service..."
Pros: "On time Excellent take off and landing Good service"
Pros: "The plane was clean and fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for no apparent reason. We were not told of this delay until 45 minutes after boarding time was supposed to begin. Good communication would have helped with this issue."
Pros: "One of the wort scariest flights ever"
Cons: "There was only one snack option and I couldn't eat it because it contained gluten."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Announcement was made at the last minute. There wasn't enough space for carry-on luggage, mostly because the flight crew let people hog space leaving less for everybody else."
Pros: "Great pilot(s). Took off in storm and had probably the best landing..."
Cons: "Delayed 55 mins, delayed 5 more mins, delayed 20 more minutes by the time we boarded zone 5 they weren't even checking passports. Just scanning boarding passes and letting everyone on. I found most issues with the Orlando airport itself."
Pros: "Easy flight to DC."
Cons: "First time at Pearson Airport needed some help finding my way around the airport"
Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."
Cons: "Air Canada has to know that generally, the flight from Toronto to LA would be bumpy. Even if they did not know, the weather forecast can tell them that. Problem is that they always SELL the food first, before serving the customers the much needed drinks for hydration. That is a pathetic service attitude. "We will sell first, and only if time left, we will serve free drinks." That stinks!! I even saw them some kids, who wanted to get to their seat (from bathroom trip), sending to wait near bathroom because the food cart they were selling from was in the way. This kind of customer hostility to kids is unforeseen."
Pros: "Air canada gave me a meal voucher since the hotel restaurant was closed before my 6:30am flight (hotel was due to a delay from MUC-YUL flight)."
Cons: "My 6:30am flight was cancelled just as we were about to board. No big announcement, and more importantly, no repeated announcements. I stood in line to get the details about my new flight only to be told to go to a the air canada customer service desk to arrange for that. The line I was in was for people with connections and no checked baggage. Again, then was no loud or repeated announcement for this, so I wasted more time. I arrived home 12 hours later than my original schedule."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Pros: "boarding was fast and simple"
Pros: "Modern plane, space, good service"
Cons: "The pasta was not good and the piece of sugary bread for breakfast was also not good."
Pros: "Once I actually got on the rebooked flight, everything went great."
Cons: "I get it, weather happens, but airlines should have figured out by now how to make any issues that come from that as painless as possible. Air Canada did not have it together. There was little communication and coordination. People had to wait multiple times in ungodly long lines while agents spent way too much time with each customer. There was misinformation and lack of information given by agents and at times no one to help at all. When there's weather it should be all hands on deck until the effected customers get to where they need to be. Otherwise it's an aggravating and nearly intolerable experience. Commercial airlines have been around for 60+ years - figure it out already."
Pros: "Entertainment system was awesome. Flight was comfortable. Crew very friendly."
Cons: "Checkin staff at airport was not friendly. Airline cannot allocate seats together even though booking was done months in advance. seriously!!!"
Pros: "The staff and service"
Cons: "Movie options from yul to lax"
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to washington"
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for more than 3 hours and there was not even a drink offered for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great with children."
Cons: "Multiple confusing security processes at airport. Huge lines. Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "The flight crew and the ground staff were nice enough."
Cons: "The new policy of charging $25 a flight just for a seat assignment means that it now costs $100.00 just to sit next to your travel companion. I understand charging extra something extra, like a service class upgrade or even some more legroom, but not just to get a seat next to your partner when you booked your flight months in advance. Bottom line: We didn't pay and ended up not just in different rows but in different boarding groups. However, now that we are at our destination, with the $100.00 we saved I'm going to sit next to my spouse at a very nice restaurant, enjoying a fine dinner! Seems like a better use of our money."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."
Pros: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."
Pros: "Terrible, only one spot open, long lines. We missed boarding and were forced to wait 4 hours after already 10 hours travel. No help and no mercy at the custom area."
Cons: "Use all airport customs agent's desks after a large plane arrivals."
Cons: "Very long line to get to security"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient. The entertainment consoles were nice, having games and movies and flight tracking."
Cons: "Not notified about long flight delay until 5 mins before scheduled boarding. Happened once with my flight and twice with my daughter's."
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"
