Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Customer service won't answer the phone"
Cons: "Customer service could answer the phone"
Pros: "Crew was amazing .. had two seats for myself"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "Such a small plane"
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Upon landing, we made it through customs. Each step of the way when our tickets were scanned, we we told our flight had already departed... Even though we had a 4 hour layover. Even the boards showed the 8:55 pmflight had already departed.... At 5pm. Finally made it to customer service and they gave us the gate number and confirmed the flight didn't leave until 8:55. Then the flight got delayed 20 minutes. No problem, but after boarding we sat in the cramped and poorly cushioned seats for 45 minutes before takeoff because the plane needed servicing. Air jets would not turn off and my husband, who had a window seat, was freezing due to cold air constantly blowing around his feet. When we got off the plane he could barely feel his feet."
Pros: "They did feed us and provided cover and small pillow"
Cons: "every thing including service is minimum."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 1.7 hours."
Cons: "Bathrooms got very messy."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment system and the fact that none of my luggage was lost on this trip. (Air Canada is a real pain to deal with on lost luggage.) Vegetarian meal was not gourmet, but good."
Cons: "Arrived late so next flight had to be rebooked. They did give us a food ticket though. I would give it an overall good rating (instead of okay) if it had not arrived late."
Pros: "We had experienced two schedule changes during the last trip. First, our first outbound leg was canceled , and second, our first inbound flight was late. CA customer service was helpful in both cases. We were given alternatives and accommodations . It's upsetting to know we had to make unfortunate changes before/during our trip, it's comforting to know that CA is there to help."
Cons: "Last minute schedule change"
Cons: "Everything was sub-par, the food, entertainment, the crew responsiveness, I asked for two drinks and was told that I could only get one at a time... really? The crew was multilingual, which was great, but also very annoying to have to listen to announcements in 5 different languages. They could use media with standardized messaging and a choice of an appropriate language, but these would make too much sense I guess. This was the tightest coach I've ever flown in, the seat ergonomics was horrible."
Pros: "Modern planes, very comfy (Vancouver to Beijing), nice entertainment options, good food"
Cons: "super cranky flight attendants who looked and talked to us like we are idiots. Not just my feelings; the rest of my travel group of 7 agrees...."
Cons: "Boarding was a disorganized free-for-all. Complete chaos and the gate staff seemed unable to manage the situation. The plane itself was an aged 767 with uncomfortable, cramped seats and no entertainment options whatsoever. Haven't taken an international flight this bad in years. Entire cabin smelled like the lavatories for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "I was very pleased with the baggage claim team in Ottawa who took extra steps to ensure that a piece of my carry-on luggage that I forgot on the flight was returned to me safely and packaged with more care than I did for myself!"
Pros: "Quick services"
Cons: "Entertainer system overload twice - without move the key"
Cons: "I can't take the flight and I can't get my money back. It is horrible"
Pros: "Very nice flight"
Pros: "Treated well and basically enjoyable flight, which is saying something on an eleven hour flight."
Cons: "On the return flight we arrived an hour late, and though we were told that they were holding our connecting flight, it left on time, five minutes before we got to the gate."
Cons: "We were missing some of our luggage and now 7 days later are no closer to getting it than we were .We haven't gotten much help or satisfaction."
Cons: "Overall everything was great, but they lost our luggage going to our destination and coming back."
Pros: "Crew was fine, food was fine, entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, which prompted the agent in Beijing to change my connection in Vancouver to 7 hours later!!! However, when I arrived in Vancouver, I made it to the gate of my original connection hoping to get on anyway, but because the agent in Beijing changed my connection before I left, my original connection was full and I was stuck in Vancouver airport for 5-6 hours. Complete waste of my time and completely unnecessary."
Pros: "Professional and courteous flight attendants. Entertainment system."
Cons: "The announcements. I know you can't do anything about it but our grandchildren will not believe that we had to listen to 12 minutes on seatbelts in the year 2016. We get it already with the seatbelts."
Pros: "crew was friendly. thankfully the flight was not full, so most people (not me) were able to stretch out on multiple seats in the rear. Food was typical; keeps you alive but that is the best we can say."
Cons: "entertainment system offered very limited variety. I think the movies were picked by a 12 year old."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "We never got on this flight because we were delayed due to an emergency landing. Couldn't get anyone to help us get home sooner than 24 after when we were originally scheduled to be home in Nashville."
Pros: "Air Canada's seats are more comfortable. I didn't have that stiff and unbearable pain and numbness I experienced with other planes over the last 20 years."
Cons: "We left late in a plane with little air, got to Nashville and had to sit for an hour on the runway in a hot plane due to hate not ready. Clearly not staffed properly as there were multiple open gates in plain sight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 45 mins. The Toronto Airport Terminal B was hellascious. No AC. Then we had to turn around after we were half way to Nashville and change planes. Not a good way to end a great trip back from Europe."
Pros: "I was barred from traveling, because Air Canada did not specify that an in-transit visa was necessary for South Africans traveling through their country to the US (where I am a graduate student at the University of Chicago). This blatant discrimination nearly caused me to be arrested and deported from China. It is also utterly unacceptable that Air Canada at no point tried to arrange an alternative flight and told to "just get another direct flight" as if buying plane tickets is in fact like taking the bus."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very polite. One of them spilled one of the dinners right next to me and hardly cleaned it up. I waited for her to come back to clean it but a few hours later, I just cleaned it myself (even though she spilled all of it)."
Cons: "The flight to Frankfurt was an hour late, so my bags didn't make the next flight to Warsaw"
Cons: "Terrible attitude to a customer (not me). I asked for a US custom form and it took them an hour and two people to do that."
Cons: "I can't fly in Canada with my US visa... so I am rejected. I think I should get more advises on about that from Kayak. I feel weird for Kayak choose my flight from Vancouver to Toronto and then to Raleigh. But I feel it would be ok if the ticket is financial. But, I was rejected by Air Canada because of that...And I need to pay more than 7000 RMB for another flight( there is $250 change flight fee). I feel terrible honestly! Time and money are what important for me and at last I've got neither of them."
Cons: "Terrible Air Canada ground service in Beijing Airport. Very slow service cause I missed the fly. Very bad attitude when I asked to change fly time."
Pros: "the flight attendant was nice at least on this flight"
Cons: "the flight was delayed for an hour in a terminal where 4 other flights were scheduled to take off at the same time. the flight was delayed for an hour, and then I sat in the plane for another hour. The staff in the airport were super rude and didn't seem like they cared at all. There was nothing express about this flight."
Pros: "People were nice wHen airline made them available to us. But business lounge, special services, and other services were not available in Toronto when we wanted them."
Cons: "Connecting flight was repeatedly delayed. Then finally cancelled because no crew was provided by the airline. Since this was only announced so late - after midnight - hotel rooms were no longer available we had to try to sleep on the floor in the departure hall. Maybe ok for 20 year old travelers. Not for 75 year olds like me who paid business class fare so as to hopefully avoid some of the rigors of travel. I managed to catch up on some sleep the next day in the business lounge while eating for my rescheduled connection. Still it has taken an additional period to physically recover from this experience."
Cons: "Cannot watch movies in over 10 hours flight, rude service."
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Pros: "professional crew members' services...."
Cons: "The food has room to improve...."
Pros: "Some good movies"
Cons: "Ran out of both dinner and breakfast options, for whatever was left."
Pros: "on time boarding & arrivial"
Pros: "I liked the newer plane and cloth seats with mild colors. The chargers were a nice accessory but sacrificed leg movability which leads us to the negatives --->"
Cons: "Wow, I know that business means remaining competitive and as such any and all cost cutting measures are taken along with profit increase measures but............... Wow, talk about being crammed in like a sardine. I'm a male of average height and usually this is a blessing because it feels as though all vehicles, amusement rides and doorways are custom made just for me with the exception of Air Canada planes. I have never in my 300+ number of flights ever felt so confined in any seat. The distance from my knee to the seat in front of me was a claustrophobic finger length at best. Getting up to use the restroom required the other passengers to get up, and I had to stand and walk across their seats to get in/out. Luckily the lady next to me was nice enough and the flight was pleasant overall, but I will certainly think twice before booking another Air Canada flight!!!"
Pros: "Air Canada does it all well. There is a strong sense that every piece o the process has been checked and double checked. Good value for money. Great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "In economy, the seats are small. Sigh. And the breakfast sausage was white. But otherwise, all good."
Cons: "Small seats, no legroom, mediocre food"
Pros: "Overall, it was a nice flight. The domestic and express flights had no food on offer (for free)..."
Cons: "Beyond the absurd 12 hour layover in Vancouver, upon my arrival in Atlanta, my luggage was lost. I'm still waiting on a call saying it was located."
Cons: "I have nothing to say about the flight, was good enough."
Pros: "The meal provision and drink service was very speedy, seats were relatively comfortable. No on-board video was available only wifi service through personal devices."
Cons: "We had a delay for 1 hour 20 minutes after boarding with no air conditioning. My other Air Canada flights also had no air conditioning while awaiting takeoff, and it was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. The crew tried to make it better by bringing cold water around as we waited but it was unbearably hot for a solid 30 minutes."
Pros: "Very good food. Great range of entertainment -- much better than United, which last year gave no selection for the long rides between Beijing and Chicago"
Cons: "Boarding process. We had four flights on Air Canada, and were put in the last boarding group on every one of them, which makes it hard to get overhead space. It seems statistically impossible for them to assign the worst boarding group to the same people every time, but they did it."
Pros: "Two bags plus a carry-on."
Pros: "Trenton was outstanding. Very professional"
Pros: "short time, smooth flight"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and quick. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Suitcase arrived brokken off the belt. If was in good shape when checked in at Chicago for the last leg of a 17 flight round the world trip. Typical to have baggage handled very poorly in US."
Cons: "Didn't get requested seats"
Pros: "Always love flying United. I enjoy being treated so well and seeing others being treated with the same respect."
Cons: "Nothing that the crew could have fixed. Delay due to previous plane coming in as well as too much oil on the plane so it took about 1.5 extra hours to finally begin taxing. A little frustrating to arrive so late but nothing they could have done. They handled it well and had positive attitudes"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on this flight, often interrupting cabin service."
Pros: "The crew was polite and caring. Always making sure I had what I needed. The organization for boarding was fast and smooth."
Cons: "The airline has to create a policy that control more the misbehavior of children on board. If children are not controlled properly, the environment becomes very disturbing."
Pros: "Full flight but still received great care and attention from the crew."
Cons: "I do not like the in-seat screens that force you to watch advertising."
Pros: "the crew was friendly, a passanger was stressing due to alot of turbulence and she tried her best to calm her"
Pros: "The sound system had been down most of the flight. Butter cube was completed melt. Bread was cold in the center."
Cons: "Entertainment system. Rarely does an international flight not equipped with TV screen on back of chair. It's so ancient to have overhead screen"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and courteous. And the food was delicious."
Cons: "My legs hurt during the flght and I couldn't get pills for air sickness, plus a half-an-hour delay. Also, my screen didn't work properly, which needs repair."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible food. Cramped, uncomfortable seats. No in-flight entertainment, app did not work."
Cons: "The plane was almost unbearably hot prior to departure. We had to wait in the plane for ~25min due to an issue with the plane, and everyone was fanning themselves down. I actually was worried about the health of some of the older passengers on the plane. Bad experience overall."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 100mins and lots of turbulence in flight"
Cons: "United should explain why they wanted to create the Basic Economy Category. What is the benefit for the airlines? I feel that they just took the lowest price they always offered and took away the flexibility we had."
Pros: "On time flight so can't complain about that. Flight attendant was funny, helpful and all around terrific"
Cons: "Tiny cabin and seats. Aisle barely wide enough to walk through. Had to crouch down (I'm 6'4"), and barely fit into my seat (I'm not overweight. Cabin was frigid as well."
Cons: "Flight was late Food on trip was barely average"
Pros: "The new planes have more leg room for comfort! Easy on and off the flight"
Cons: "Entertainment at a price. Should include a movie or two for free"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Multiple delays, rerouted 2 times, multiple seat changes"
Cons: "Everything Worst airline ever I will never fly with them again We chose them because they are the only ones that fly straight to my destination. However, I would rather have a layover than fly with united again! I will be flying with Southwest from now on. Thank you"
Pros: "No delay at all"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The 737-700r seating is really close when you have 3 big guys in the same row"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendant. The actual flight"
Cons: "The Gate agent was rude and fresh. At least 10 passengers told me they did not hear the boarding announcements until the final boarding was called. When I said to my friend as she was running toward the gate that we didn't hear the announcements. The gate agent told me I was the only one because all the other passengers did. I told him that wasn't true. He would not look at me and repeated to go down the jet way or I would miss the flight. Meanwhile more passengers were running for the gate. The message board message displayed "preboarding". I was sitting in the gate area for 40 minutes."
Cons: "We had confirmed reservations to go visit my daughter and son in law in Nashville. We had purchased tickets to see a concert in Nashville. We missed the concert and a full day of planned activities. We were bumped off the flight although we had confirmed reservations. So we decided to drive and incurred hotel charges. We will be driving back home and will incur hotel charges on the way home. We had to pay for gas and wear and tear on our car. This has been an awful experience."
Pros: "Everyone was extremely nice! Made me want to fly again. Very quick flight! Crew was great. Very enjoyable people."
Cons: "I don't have any complaints."
Cons: "Too cold on board"
Pros: "Very good!"
Pros: "Nothing is good about united."
Cons: "Had to fly into Memphis instead of Nashville in order to make my event. United didn't even help me do it, I figured it out myself . Asked for a refund and they gave me $3. Had to drive 4 hours and rent a car for $75 just to make my event on time that I had planned months ago. United is a terrible airline and I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Not crowded"
Pros: "Flight delayed, had to check carry on Bag and didn't receive it for over 30 mins after flight"
Pros: "Comfy enough. Wider than the first plane."
Cons: "Crew was a little short temperee but the plane was over a half hour late. Also, somewhere between Tucson and Nashville they played football with my suitcase and I ended up with broken gifts and a suitcase full of cookies from where thr damn container broke."
Pros: "The associate at the desk confused my flight for the next flight. I was given the wrong information and I watched my plane depart from the gate. Upon realizing that employees of that gate had left, and we're not coming back, I had to ask passing personnel about my flight to find that it left already and that I had already been rebooked without being notified. I now had to fly from Houston to Chicago to Nashville. The new flight boarded almost 2 hours later than expected, and upon landing in Chicago, I had already missed my connecting flight to Nashville by 35 minutes apparently. Unacceptable."
Cons: "People took my seat, family in front of me had tv blaring the entire time and flight attendants did nothing, child next to me threw up on me since there were NO bags in the seats. Took 45 minutes to get luggage. Never again!! And no free wifi?? $7.99 is ridiculous when most other airlines give it for free."
Pros: "The crew was sympathetic and kind."
Cons: "The flight was repeatedly delayed for nearly 3 hours."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing good to say. Unaccommodating plane and crew."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing good to say. Unaccommodating plane and crew. Pay a little more and fly another carrier."
Pros: "The Flight Attendant who was in the back of the place was awesome and very caring."
Cons: "Someone was sitting in my seats and instead of making him move they made us move and tried splitting up my wife and 6 month old child about 4 rows apart. The air started blowing very hot air about halfway through the flight. Everyone was sweating and it was better to just turn the air off completely then keep it on. They tried taking care of it which helped for 5 minutes and then it started blowing hot again. Also the WiFi would kick you off after about 30 seconds and then make you go through a login that takes like 60 seconds. Needless to say... this was the first time I haven't flown Southwest in years... and with the kind of experience it's no wonder why it won't happen again any time soon."
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable"
Pros: "Concetta trotter My experience was excellent at Newark airport The service I received was the best I ever had I am handicap and united took excellent care of Me the attendants were outstanding!!!! But when I arrived in Nashville I was suppose to Get a wheel chair to bring me out the door and The person brought me off the ramp and told me To get off he had other people !!! I was shocked thank GOD I had my cane to walk With Nashville should watch who they hire But over all united rocks can't wait to get On another flight on united won't fly anyone else You took very good care of me"
Cons: "And then when I was flying home I had to change my flight plan because my flight got so delayed that I was going to miss my connector.."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Every flight was late. I flew from Nashville to lax and both of my flights were late there and back"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and accommodations for this inconvience were horrible."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Loud guy sitting behind us was all."
Cons: "Had to sit at the gate for a very long time and it was extremely hot on the plane. Also had to use the restroom very badly while we were sitting at the gate and the crew told me I couldn't."
Pros: "Flight departed An hour late but caught up time on route. service was cold, rude and lazy. Many passenger brought food trash tray to the station by themselves. Bathroom was gross. Food was salty and I requested water and I was ignored. I finally raised my voice and start asking their names because I would write a complain. Tha started all hassle for me. Long story short, I was demanded to identify if I held Chinese or US passport... I have written a letter to United CEO. I got reply that I would get a reply in 24-48 hours. I'm waiting. My second leg was two hours delay from Chicago to Boston."
Cons: "those FA should be fired, especially the one who demanded to identify my nationality."
Cons: "they charged me twice for the same ticket and never refunded me my money"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above. Stewartists were rude both ways."
