Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."
Cons: "Terrible flight experience from delta"
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "I like having the adjustable head rests."
Cons: "There was no window in the back row of seats, which was claustrophobic. The seat rows are too close together, that it was hard to focus on the movie on the seatback in front of me. My seat didn't recline at all."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."
Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."
Pros: "Customer service on the phone."
Cons: "Delays all day on delta. On my way out and on the return flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour. No explanation given"
Cons: "It took longer to get from nyc to dc that it did Venice to NYC. Horrible....got home at 2am"
Pros: "Fawn on our flight from Atlanta to Newark was amazing."
Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."
Pros: "We were able to fly standby on our original 2:30p flight but had to return to DCA for checked baggages later that day"
Cons: "Connecting flight from JFK to DCA was moved from approx 2:30p to nearly 8p, making our layover 7+ hours, as opposed to 1-2 hours. No reason for this change was provided. Delta crew member in JFK was rude and unhelpful. The second agent (who ultimately booked our standby tickets for our original connecting flight) was more pleasant."
Pros: "The service, free entertainment."
Pros: "The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak! I just need to do better at checking my phone due to both apps sending me updates about flight delays and luggage locations"
Cons: "Lack of space from being confined to the middle seat but the passengers next to me were nice and the plane ride was over before I realized it."
Cons: "There was no rhyme nor reason for who boarded first"
Pros: "Great service by gate operators."
Cons: "TSA process"
Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"
Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."
Pros: "The free small meals are a nice touch. Everything was great. The flight was on time and lived up to my expectations for the best US airline."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants didn’t seem super happy. Not much to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
Pros: "Thanks to Angel in the ATL airport who helped ensure I had a more comfortable flight. He was very kind and I appreciated his help."
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "In typical Delta fashion they boarded, deplane, board it again and then beat the plane. Blamed it on weather even though a full maintenance crew was beneath the plane in the entire time and, for the coup de gras moved a new flight an hour later 30 gate down. Classic Delta hopefully they'll be out of business in a year"
Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"
Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"
Cons: "Delta is terrible!!! $100 extra for everything!!! Terrible!!"
Pros: "Easy boarding, not a full flight, had plenty of room to stretch out, friendly flight crew, extra snacks!"
Cons: "Not much to say I didn't like, few problems with in-flight WiFi but otherwise good."
Cons: "Flight attendant took my complimentary new order but then forgot to bring me the food."
Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."
Cons: "The plane was late to JFK and then we had to wait for them to deboard and prepare for us to get one. Now we are in DCA and we can’t even get to our gate for another 10 mins"
Pros: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"
Cons: "Flight was late by almost 2 hours!!!"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and although we took off late, we arrived on-time."
Cons: "The rows of seats are so tight that when the big guy in the seat in front of me leaned back (not even putting his seat back) his seat banged into my knees. A combination of cheap seats and too many seats. Made for a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "No entertainment. Wifi didn't work."
Cons: "no access to sky club"
Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cost of the ticket"
Pros: "As the flight was over two hours late and a runway at JFK was shut down I opted for a full refund from Delta as I would have been at my destination less than 24 hours. Kayak & Delta was good keeping me informed of changes including the 5 gate changes"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Cons: "Too many boarding calls for different levels of service."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "No delay. Seats were horribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "AA seats are very small and narrow. The reclining part was uncomfortable. I prefer legroom and comfort at Delta Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great from checking in to the flight attendant and cockpit."
Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Cons: "AA provided me NO assistance when my flight was cancelled and I had to make arrangements on my own, which caused me to incur in extra expending."
Pros: "Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Wifi that actually worked."
Cons: "I had little leg room"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"
Cons: "The WiFi to work."
Cons: "Delayed more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Their CRJ was very comfortable. More comfortable and modern than what I’ve seen on a lot of Skywest/delta connection flights. Crew was great"
Cons: "that my flight got cancelled and wasn't going out until Saturday and I would have been less than 24 hrs in Boston"
Cons: "Paid for gogoinflight, then is had a big error red screen, that said keep trying back in a few minutes. Never worked. Was not happy. Long flight."
Pros: "They let me sleep"
Cons: "Not enough food options"
Pros: "Free upgrade despite the delay so it was great."
Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice and kept us updated."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 minutes early and we still deboarded 20 minutes LATE. Wifi on flight is ten dollars instead of being free and they use plastic cups for the drinks which I am sure is not recycled."
Cons: "American is always delayed, every single flight."
Pros: "Entertainment good"
Cons: "Legroom bad"
Pros: "Nothing, they’re awful."
Cons: "American Airlines failed to provide the service we paid for: a flight that arrived home in the morning, so that we could get to work. We had to use vacation days we did not have to spare."
Pros: "Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served."
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."
Pros: "Shabby Cramped"
Cons: "Cramped Uncomfortable"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "Bought a ticket from Alaska Air, but got farmed out to American, If I wanted to fly in American, I would have bought a ticket from them. This also made checking in a lot more confusing..."
Pros: "American did a good job. DFW concourse was ice cold and the speaker system was terrible could not understand a word she said. Very obvious DFW is outdated and tired airport."
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "General professionalism of crew"
Cons: "Food selection was poor, small quantity, and bad value. Online boarding pass didn't work for return flight first time, but worked a second time."
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Cons: "Worse customer service ever inside and outside the plane. Try he daughter was traveling with a 3 year old and they didn't want to change their seats together are u kidding me my daughter had to be asking in the plane but they did it for other people."
Cons: "Worse experience ever."
Pros: "Since you can not pay for pets online- I stood in line over an hour to pay. Then the CS wrote the wrong gate number on my ticket and I went to the wrong terminal that didn't connect. They took me in a van to make the flight."
Cons: "Pet pay options online"
Pros: "The American Airlines crew was very friendly but completely clueless about the details of the delay, our connection and the connecting airport."
Cons: "The American Airlines staff assured us that if we got stuck in DC we would receive hotel vouchers. Not only did we not receive hotel vouchers but we were denied access to our rescheduled flight the next day and forced to rent a car to get us from DC to Massachusetts in time for our event. This "misunderstanding" cost us 2 days of our trip and an additional $500 all together. I have never been more disappointed by an airline in all my years of travel! If we'd been told the truth from the beginning we would of rescheduled the flight for the following day from our original destination and saved ourselves 2 headaches and a ton of money."
Pros: "I liked nothing about the flight or services of the staff."
Cons: "My flight was scheduled hours before I was scheduled. I checked in very early because I was coming in from another flight. At check-in the flight was still indicated as on-time. When I arrived shortly to the gate it indicated that the flight had been cancelled. I was assigned to the flight before which was delayed. We were not served beverages because we were told that the ride www short. I observed the flight attendant talking abruptly to other passengers When we arrived in DC, we were told that another plane was parked at our gate. We sat on the runway for almost an hour. I was told when I arrived that my bag had been accidently sent to Charlotte. Unbelievable!!"
the seats were comfortable and the crew were outstanding
4 of us split across the row with people in between us. Narrow body trans-continental flights just aren't economy class friendly. It was hot, cramped and long.
British Airways does not even operate out of Nairobi anymore. I was forced to but an additional ticket with another airline just to arrive home. Terrible!
Cons: "Everything needed to have been better, especially communication. I wasn't informed flight time changed, then wasn't informed UK rules wouldn't allow me to fly to USA via London until I gotvyo airport. Was rerouted on another airline and won't get home until 48 hours than originally scheduled. And not even a luncheon voucher less yet a hotel room for my overnight transit stay on new flight."
Cons: "staff Attitude could be better. Also no milk for toddlers but free vine for people to get drunk, be loud on overnight flight, then snore and stink drunk. My table was all in some snort when I opened it to put my meal on. Dirty lavatory floors."
Pros: "Crew were good early on but didn’t check later on"
Cons: "It was ridiculously hot and the crew didn’t offer water after initial drinks run and we were seriously dehydrated. The flight was delayed and although the first half an hour we had excellent service there was no follow up service and the temperature in the plane was really very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and addressed the crew and passengers multiple times with updates."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"
Cons: "Too many delays including leading the gate due to ground staff leaving equipment behind the plane .... really ?! On the upside - announcements from 1st officer was good"
Pros: "The crew was behaving nice."
Cons: "The website is horrible and full of bugs. In Flight tracker, the same flight returned two results, one in cancelled status and another in delayed status. I called british airways to update my personal details as their website didn't allow me to enter details, the staff messed up the details."
Pros: "I loved the spacious business class cabins"
Pros: "We were downgraded from our Business class tickets to Economy Plus because the flight was overbooked. The journey and services were poor. This is for a business class passengers who paid full fair."
Cons: "All problems mentioned above needs to be fixed. We are not flying BA again. We are done with you"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "When the refreshment cart passed down the aisle, the attendants neither articulated clearly what was available, nor did they even slow down as they hurried down the aisle to allow passengers to request items."
Pros: "Polite, friendly staff."
Pros: "For coach, was not bad seat"
Cons: "Charging for food, no entertainment on board"
Pros: "Good entertainment."
Cons: "I would never book a ticket through BA ever! Paid business class and my luggage got forgotten in Heathrow through transit. No one knows anything about it. I have arrived to san Francisco with no language at all!!!!"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The seat in the so-called business class was too narrow even for a very slim person. The middle seat was too awful!"
Pros: "Service was excellent, and the 777 flight was very comfortable. The flight attendants were remarkable. The ticket agents had difficulty rebooking the London to Milan leg of my flight when that flight was cancelled while I was on the way to the airport, but they were somehow able to get me onto an earlier flight than was originally offered. What I gathered was that the computer was not very cooperative. The ticket agents were incredibly helpful during this process."
Cons: "I lost my original exit row seat somehow and had to inquire into it. I think what happened was that while the ticket agents were able to rebook my cancelled London to Milan flight, my seat reservation on the Seattle to London leg got lost somehow. I suppose another passenger may have grabbed my seat during that rebooking process. I noticed the changed seat assignment only after I left the ticketing counter. I was able to get a different exit row seat (but with less leg room) assigned to me by inquiring with the agent at the gate."
Pros: "Simple trip no delays and pretty quick Flight time."
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Flight attendants repeatedly increased the amount of alcohol given to drunk passengers while those passengers spilled food and drinks on me and could not keep their bodies out of my personal space."
Pros: "Only wish they would've put me on the direct flight"
Cons: "The transfer was a pain. Signage at Toronto Airport is non existent. I had to stop and ask people which way to go 3 times"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants , smooth flight with excellent food , refreshments and entertainment. Thank you so very much Keep up this excellent service"
Cons: "In Barcelona, they do not use Catalan in the announcements (American Airlines do)."
Pros: "Classic, reliable and trustworthy British Airways. Does what it says on the tin"
Cons: "Very full flight but still comfortable"
Pros: "Nice flight, great service."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "In flight entertainment and meals were great. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Very crowded and difficult to move. Also, would have liked more water service - had to go ask for water a few times since service was not offered regularly."
Pros: "crew attentive to passengers and always with a happy demeanour."
Pros: "Webjet made my trip a nightmare!! I will never deal with webjet again!!!"
Cons: "Webjet cause me so many headaches, why do you use them!! You have lost a good customer if I have to use them again!!"
Pros: "Always a good flight out of LCY"
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Indifferent inflight service is probably a compliment. The worst insult was to the 120 passengers whose flight to Heathrow was cancelled. They waited hours for the flight to Gatwick. On arrival BA announced that the buses that were promised by ground staff in Venice had not been arranged because BA didn't have the resources at hand. Useless as usual!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "There are no wheel chairs for BA in London. We were made to walk long distances in absence of wheel chairs. No coordination in BA ground staff."
Pros: "Heathrow T5 bag drop and terminal in general was great as usual."
Cons: "Iberia are a poor codeshare partner. Old plane, tacky interior, and just like BA they make it difficult to get even a glass of water without paying extra."
Cons: "No snacks or drinks (not even water) was provided free of charge. Everything was for purchase...really!?"
Cons: "I am emerald on one world. In the departure flight I was not able ot reserve an aisle seat during online checkin ( need to get up on flights quite a bit for health reasons). I had been assigned a window although aisles, my preference, were available. I sought to change seats from window to aisle and would have been charged USD $18 (on a flight within europe - why dollars?). The BA staff said the website would be fine on the return journey - but it was not. I arrnved at teh airport (not having checked in as I didn't want a window) and the BA staff person in 46 at 6:45pm simply said that's impossible to change anything - no apology; she seemed rather irritated to be asked. I then went to security and the machine for priority queue did not permit me to enter - it said 'invalid ticket'. Then the flight was significantly delayed. So all in all not a great day."
Pros: "Everything was organised.Didn't even waste a minute.I should say excellent service being my first trip withBA"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant throughout, however, even they referred to this flight being a comedy of errors."
Cons: "BA badly needs to invest in some new stock. 2 hr delayed departure as a tire needed to be changed. Took over 1 hour to get the entertainment system to work after 2 reboots. Leaking air conditioning vent above my seat. Food was mediocre. Snack before arrival is clearly cost saving, sandwiches have been replaced with a biscuit."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 mins, but when I'm 2 mins late to check in the cancelled my boarding pass. Ridiculous customer service wanted to charge me $400 to change my flight!!! Never again"
Cons: "Since 1st flight was extremely delayed due to stupidity of staff unable to get head count of passengers, the BA system rebooked my 2nd flight which should hve not happened because I made it to my original flight prior to gate closing AND that flight was delayed anyways so I made it in plenty of time to make it yet my seat was taken from me and then boarding started. And I have to state WHY this BA flight was delayed - because they "had problem getting the catering on board" thus missed runway time. Anyways, since I was rebooked I went to my new gate, waited many hours to hve another issue, where they couldnt find my new seat in system and changed, and again flight was delayed this time due to having a flat tire... Common BA, seems your quality dropped 99%."
Pros: "I'm sure there was something but nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Lack of assistance regarding my missing belongings. Incorrect information relating to landing card to be completed when arriving in London. Stretching over me to pass food etc to passenger sitting facing other direction, and literally millimetres from my face, without any politeness having to do it. Configuration gives no privacy as you look at the passenger next to you. Functions of chair did not work. Pillow was thinner Than a piece of paper. Crew showed no concern."
Pros: "We did land OK but JFK was snowed in and this probably caused the many problems we encountered. Iq always have bad luck flying in and out of that airport so I don't completely hold BA accountable. Staff we polite and efficient."
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane for an hour and a half after landing at JFK. On the ground they ran the engines so loudly my husband got a terrible headache. We mentioned the noise problem but were ignored. Once allowed to debark we were crammed into a long cold hall and waited another 1/2 hour before moving towards immigration clearance. To top it off the baggage conveyer system was broken and we waited another 45 minutes before they shut the building down. So we left with no luggage exhausted. One piece of luggage was left back in London. Not pleasant at all. We did get our luggage returned 3 days later. That was good."
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew"
Pros: "Nothing in particularly"
Cons: "Disorganised boarding, people standing to find a seat, upgrades being handed out on a whim. Meal service poor."
Cons: "Small selection of movies"
Pros: "Good service on the flight. Good movie selection. The flight wasn't filled so there was room to breathe."
Pros: "As a time flier on AA, must say I loved the experience, from check in, to onboard entertainment and service. Think that's the way forward for me on the London-New York sector."
Cons: "There was nothing to not like. Again, maybe because I didn't expect anything and everything turned out just fine."
Cons: "plane didn't leave for 45 minutes"
Pros: "Short and convenient flight"
Cons: "My hand luggage was taken to be checked in"
Air Canada is a reputable airline, dedicated to supporting customers.
Entertainment system didn’t work.
No sure how boarding zone works.
Pros: "There was a particularly great flight attendant. I wish I got her name but she was really helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "The crackers that came with my cheese plate meal were rancid."
Cons: "Air Canada has completely gone down the tubes and super quickly."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Cons: "delay, changing the plane, no food"
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."
Pros: "The movies and entertainment offered in the screen were alright."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour because flight got in late from Halifax, I get it, stuff happens. Then once boarded we sat there for another 45 minutes. The pilot comes on over the speaker and explains we aren't leaving because the crew didn't have the proper paper work in the cabin..."
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."
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: "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."
Pros: "Calgary airport first and foremost went above and beyond for me. The flight then after was the same, friendly attendants, great smooth flight. 5 stars for staff."
Cons: "The headphones are bad, i had my own headphones so it was fine. I did go w the air canada ones first just out of convenience, but they were fuzzy, probably would have ruined the movies."
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: "Are you joking I waiting my plane since almost 4 hours"
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: "The flight attendants were jerks. Why can't I listen to my headphones before takeoff? Because of the safety speech? Are deaf people not allowed to fly? I was asked to take my headphones off during the safety speech, which I did. I put them back on after the speech and was yelled at. The lady in front of me had a dog. The lady across from me was talking on her cell phone. And the kids behind me were playing games on their iPad with no headphones and the sound on. No one said anything to them. Screw this airline."
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."
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: "The pod were set up well. The crew service was very responsive. All-in-all pretty good."
Cons: "Getting baggage to and thru US Customs cut it real close to connection to LaGuardia."
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."
Pros: "The flight attendant."
Cons: "Toronto Terminal F is kind of how I envision a third-world country. At least at the higher-number gates, it's very dreary, with an occasional flying insect and signs hanging from the ceiling. Worse is the lack of air conditioning and the sporadic wi-fi service. Worst of all was the almost two-hour delay and changing our departure gate at least five times. Two fellow passengers (one a native of Toronto) said it was always like that. The trip from Toronto to London and back was fine, but I'll try very hard to avoid Air Canada and its Terminal F."
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: "Some of the cabin crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "It is the first international flight that do not have any television screens, music stations or any entertainment on board. Alcoholic beverages are not free! We sat in seats that cannot recline - for the whole flight from Barcelona to Toronto. Cabin crew did not keep the cabin clean. Although we flew Air Canada from Barcelona to Toronto and have not left the inside of the airport, we had to go through customs again and almost missed our flight to Atlanta due to that. Airport officials were rude; some of the crew members treated us with disrespect and not approachable. It is the worst international flight ever - even worse than some third world carriers that I used before."
Cons: "Not everyone travels with a portable computer. Upgrade your fleet to provide free in flight entertainment that you don't have to download an app for. Who wants to watch a movie on their tiny smart-phone screen? I'm not a five-year-old."
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: "The first meal on my return flight was correct"
Cons: "The second meal had cheese in it and I took a bite before I noticed. They gave me a new one but didnt seem bothered by it. Dietary restrictions NEED to be taken seriously, thank god I'm not, but some people are deathly allergic. This wasn't the first time they messed up my food either."
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"
Pros: "The flight was on time and that is something really important to me. There was really no complaints about this flight"
Cons: "My headsets weren't working but it was a really minor problem."
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 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."
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"
Pros: "This was the usual flight. Nothing exceptional. The flight crew were very nice."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working and in one of our seats the Audio was not working"
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline food. The stewardesses were nice and attentive, and they provided an ipad for in-flight entertainment free of charge (usually $10) when my boyfriend's laptop couldn't use the system. Air Canada employees at check-in were polite and worked quickly."
Cons: "We had a terrible experience on our first flight from Chicago to Toronto, causing us to miss our connection and delaying our travel essentially 24hrs in total. We were expecting the worst this time around as well, but things went without a hitch. Only complaint is that the in-flight wifi kept cutting out so I had to keep restarting the videos I was watching, almost every 15min or so. My boyfriend's Air Canada-provided iPad had great service though, and access to newer released movies."
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."
Pros: "Great female flight attendant. So sweet."
Cons: "I watched the Big Short, which kept shorting. I had to stop the video about 15 times to get to the end. And one slice of cake is not adequate breakfast."
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."

Cons: "There should have been food for purchase."
Cons: "Able to choose own seats"
Pros: "WiFi Movie channels"
Cons: "Choice of snacks!"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice crew. Newer clean plane."
Cons: "No screens provided. You have to use your phone with the United app and that’s assuming you have headphones and they gave me ear buds but they don’t work for iPhones...so yeah."
Cons: "Everything was excellent. I got upgraded to first class, the flight arrived early and I was on the left side of the aircraft so I had an excellent view of DC as we came in for a landing."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Wasn't expecting to have to run all the entertainment through my mobile device. I'd that's what you're gonna do, we're should get free wi-fi"

Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Food selection is not very good.."
Pros: "Good equipment. Pilots communicative."
Cons: "First class food choices were both heavy ( meat ravioli or braised beef tips). I had a nice grilled chicken wrap from Coach. Flight attendants were pleasant and professional but not very attentive."
Cons: "THere was no entertainment"
Pros: "We flew for only 45 minutes on a flight that had been scheduled for 1.3 hours."
Cons: "The long delay seemed strange, as the plane had arrived from Costa Rica. Why would an airline schedule the same plane for an international flight and then a short hop from Newark to DC without adequate time in between? The departure gate at Newark was absolute chaos! Announcements were overlapping and not understandable. There was inadequate seating."
Cons: "The crew were harsh and abrupt. The seats were uncomfortable and tilted too far toward to be able to sit in the upright position. The "reclined" position was a more reasonable upright position."
Pros: "Super nice crew and kept us informed of the unfortunate delays."
Cons: "Delay leaving. Relatively hot flight. Also see previous comment for the flight the day before."
Pros: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"
Cons: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"
Pros: "Seemed like an older jet, so the seats felt larger and more comfortable than most newer aircraft these days. I was surprised they could land a 757 at DCA, but we did!"
Pros: "Got home earlier than planned because I was able to get on an earlier flight."
Pros: "The crew - very friendly."
Cons: "Bag didn't arrive on my flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
Pros: "No food or drink was served on the 35 min flight. Staff was friendly. Bag check at the walkway was very slow, but it is what it is."
Cons: "This was horrible. There was a delay and there was no announcement in the terminal. If I had not been checking my email I would have had no idea. I kept getting emails from UA with different times and they were all wrong."
Pros: "It was a quick flight. The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "Never got there canceled for weather."
Cons: "Crew did not communicate well with ground crew on maintenance issue, causing us to sit on plane for 2:20 hours."

Pros: "The crew were helpful and did their best to manage delays."
Cons: "United is has delayed my flight on 3 out of the last four trips. 40 minutes, 1 hour, and 2.5 hours."
Pros: "The plane is new and it was spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "They change the gate and no one told us anything, just when someone asked they told us, flight was delayed but fortunately we arrived on time. You have to pay for al the entertainment."
Cons: "This experience felt very "cheap". I have flown united many times and never thought this before. Not including a checked bag for an international flight seems ridiculous. I understand for domestic travel, but international is different. Same with not having an in-flight movie. Even one or two free options, or free tv or something. The only "free" included bringing your own device and paying for the wi-fi."
Cons: "Terrible delays and little to no communication."
Pros: "Standard 2 hour flight. Efficient with no frills."
Cons: "Standard 2 hour flight. Efficient with no frills."
Cons: "Delays sand discomfort!"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time and there was absolutely no delay. As soon as we boarded we were on our way..I was such a pleasant flight with very little turbulence."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and promptly getting people into their seats."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was slightly hectic, but due to lack of attention on the passengers part. A seat was double booked and the crew handled it quite well in addition to a woman who insisted on sitting next to her older child but hadn't planned for it."
Pros: "It was very quick boarding, it may have been a bit confusing though."
Pros: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"
Cons: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"
Cons: "The crew was rude especially the male attendant in the business class , the seats looked as if they will break anytime and entertainment doesn't really work"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "We arrived with 10 minutes to make our next flight at ORD. The flight crew could have requested that folks who did NOT have tight connections wait a few minutes so the rest of us could get off the plane efficiently. This did not happen. Folks who lived in Chicago just took their sweet time gathering their stuff while we waited."
Pros: "Able to sleep the whole way"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "It's was a very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Long waiting time to get luggafe"
Cons: "After three on-time flights from the other side of the world, I was stuck in Chicago for a 3 hour delay. The flight finally arrived at Reagan 2 minutes after the runway closed so we were rerouted to a different airport where we finally landed 4 hours late."
Pros: "Uncrowded flight so there were lots of extra seats!"
Cons: "No food or snacks provided for free."
Pros: "Same....very possible experience"
