Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "We read in the Delta onboard magazine about Delta’s commitment to women. Yet Delta coverups a rape by one male employee against a recent immigrant in a Delta vehicle. What say you?"

Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"
Pros: "Safe trip and very nice crew."

Cons: "Refueling took over an hour."
Cons: "Seat was old and killed my back. Paid for a comfort plus seat, but from what I could tell it was no different that economy. Still had to gate check my single carry on, no entertainment system, no in flight texting. I felt ripped off"
Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Organization of entry gates. Sat in the plane for about 30 min after landing."
Cons: "Great flight but old regional jet"
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"

Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"
Cons: "Contacting me before rebooking would have saved me $400"
Pros: "the entertainment choices were adequate"
Cons: "More efficient deplanning. It took us 40 minutes to get off the plane after it landed"
Pros: "Food and drinks were great"
Cons: "Would have liked being able to select a window seat."
Pros: "Everything . Delta is one of the best"
Cons: "The customs and border inspection station in Atlanta is an absolute disaster."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "The flight attendants were borderline rude. No eye contact, no smile, not helpful when asking a question (overhead compartments were full in my section; I asked what I should do, response: „ I don’t know either“ and walked off. I went to find a spot further up the aisle..."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Quite helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "The only small item is the gate size in MSP. Always a bit crowded but still departed on time so it’s not a large issue."
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Late boarding and take off with no explanation."
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."

Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."
Pros: "I like that I was able to request a window seat and was obliged to get another one."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had anxiety about being at my destinations on time because I had to travel another hour away without knowing if my ride would be able to wait for me. However, I was booked on another plane that wasn't damaged which got me there on time,but once I arrived my luggage was no where to be found. I was promised my luggage on the same day,but I didn't get it until 11:30pm that night from a 2:40pm flight. I had to go out and spend money on toiletries,night wear and my medicine because of not having my luggage. Just totally disgusted by the overall experience and wouldn't wish it on anyone."

Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Service, seats, food and pilot were all good."
Cons: "There ought to be a better way to go from an international flight to a connecting domestic flight. Security and Customs should be combined to expedite the process for passengers and crew members. I'm not suggesting not going through security, buy why couldn't we do it at the same place as customs? Too often Delta flights are delayed and I don't understand why Delta wouldn't do everything it could to expedite every part of the process for its crew and passengers. I went through TSA pre-check with Delta crew members. My connecting flight was delayed. We were waiting on the pilot..."

She is an old woman who gets lost and I had to order assistance for her, in Washington DC they opened her bags after that they lost the bags, she had medication on them and it was a nightmare to get them back. Im really upset and I don’t think That I’m going to book with this aero line again."

Pros: "Large screens for movies are excellent. Very easy to use."

Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, beverage service, and leg room."
Cons: "I paid to reserve an upgraded seat. I specifically asked for a window seat and even have a confirmation email saying that I got a window seat (27 A). However, when I checked in, I was assigned a middle seat and the representatives at the ticket counter tried to tell me that was my preference. They tilde me to take it up with customer relations. If I pay $100 for a particular seat, I should get that seat!"
Pros: "flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and there was no bathroom service on board"
Pros: "Everything was perfectly on time. Pilots were excellent and crew very attentive."
Cons: "Food was ok"
Cons: "We never flew out !! We're still at the airport! Please help us! We have to be in Spain by Saturday"
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "Very efficient, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "the crew was amazing: friendly and caring"
Cons: "The vegetation meals were not appealing. There was no flavor and strange food combinations."
Cons: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."
Pros: "Love to be in the air... any flight"
Cons: "Price... When I found this flight it was under $500. As I waited for my check to be deposited the price went up nearly $500 as if it was programmed to go up if I didn't take book it the first time. From that point on, my flight was the highest priced flight np matter where I looked, my dates were the highest priced. Not happy. And my charges were more than the flight. How can that be fair. $400 flight $500 fee??? WTF??? But I needed the flight. I feel like I was screwed."
Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"
Pros: "This flight was fine. About as comfortable as I expected."
Cons: "I sat next to a man who had a vape pen and a can of chew with him. So the entire nine hours I spent smelling his mouth tobacco and I could do nothing about it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "The variety and ease of use of the entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding was not at all well organized. There were no instructions about what to have ready and the woman who checked our passports was rude."
Pros: "Liked the flight from Frankfurt to Chicago better when it comes to food and drinks. It was spaced out better and we were offered more drinks. It was very nice to have a seat changed when checking in at the airport without any problems or telling me to ask once on board."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."
Pros: "Flughts departed and arrived on time, food was impressive, flight attendants were friendly and attentive and good on-board entertainment"
Pros: "I was travelling with small kids and I was asked t be boarded as first one. Therefore myself and kids were not required to queue"
Cons: "As I was with two kids when doing checked in I was not able to have three seats next to each other. I was required to negotiate in plane with another passenger to change the seat"
Pros: "All went well. On time boarding n arrival. Smooth flight n landing"
Pros: "30 minutes late boarding; food quite simple; entertainmentsystem very faulty"
Pros: "nothing at all."
Cons: "There was 1 hour layout, but the plane was late. i was leaving the plane at the boarding time for my next flight. the gates very extremely far away from each other it took me 20 minutes to get from the original gate to the next one and i was running all the time. by the time i got there i had no place to store my carry on luggage anywhere despite the fact the storage compartments very occupied by small backpack which could easily be stored underneath seats. i asked a flight attended to help me but she answered she was not on duty and left (what the hell!!!) what was she doing on the plane then. i wound up with my luggage underneath the seat, my bag in my lap squeezed and extremely uncomfortable. overall one of the worst flights i have ever had. i was lucky it was only one hour long."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and Kayak never picked up the change."
Cons: "The check-in team at Austrian Air insisted I could only take on a single carry-on, even though I'd come with two. Should be one above and one below."
Pros: "Iberia is great"
Cons: "Great airline Iberia is great"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"
Cons: "Very poor service and staff attention...the food is horrible, even worse than Ryanair, Easyjet, etc..."
Cons: "If kayak didn’t take me to a page where the reservation was different than what I agreed on. Not even close to what I had selected, leading me to believe I was booking a trip on the days I chose and then not realizing it was incorrect until my trip was starting. This is the last time I use kayak."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice and kind and the onboard entertainment was nice"
Cons: "LEG ROOM! This was less than normal space! The seats were so close to each other I couldn’t even straighten up my knees! This is a long haul flight, it is not humane to keep people folded in 3 for 12h!"
Cons: "At leasr a cup of water during the flight"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Cons: "No comfort. The USB wasn't working, even with the pilot telling us about it's availability."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "SEAT was not confortable"
Cons: "Pedí un resumen del vuelo para ver lo que compré y nunca me llegó."
Cons: "To be honest, i feel like your pricing is very misleading. I was not prepared to pay $60 per bag in luggage fees. For an international flight, I believe your site should be much more clear in stating whether the fees paid will include luggage or not. I will consider other options in the future to avoid this unpleasant surprise at the airport."
Pros: "Left on time fast out"
Cons: "Dos not Get any food"
Cons: "We had to walk onto the tarmac and climb up stairs to board the plane carrying our luggage and small child."
Pros: "I found the flight to be about average for an economy flight"
Cons: "I did not like that we had our luggage split in layover had to come Out of airport just to get it"

Cons: "Sits are too tight. Honestly impossible to be comfortable"
Pros: "When I got off a previous flight, I had missed my connection. I was greeted with someone who had already booked my next flight. Also, the seat was fairly comfortable for a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "As great as it was that they booked my connecting flight, I wish I could have my luggage. It has been over a week and I believe that it is because I had such a short layover from my first flight to this one."
Cons: "Barcelona to Madrid... got the TB section. Chorus of coughers in these days."
Cons: "Online check in failed, and legroom was non-existent - the worst of any alliance-based carrier I have ever flown."
Pros: "They took invalid information from my travel records which resulted in my passport from 2006 being on my ticket for 2017. Aside from not helping me getting on the plane, and or another connection, they proceeded to tell me after the fiasco that they are in no way elligble to refund anyone and are a 3rd party, therefore not liable. $700 and its not there fault. They just pushed all the paperwork"
Cons: "The fact that no one in this company is liable or helpful in tge slightest after they have your money"
Cons: "In Chicago, again my carryon things and person were extensively searched, to the point that the explosives expert was called to examine my shoes and cell phone!! If anyone would have been trying to get away with something, they were certainly able to with the time and energy wasted on me as I was only anxious to get home to see my grandchildren!!"
Pros: "Lunch meal was good. Flight attendants were friendly."

Cons: "Lack of legroom on such a long flight"

Pros: "Nice crew and good landing"
Cons: "We paid extra to sit in Economy * I am 6-3, wife 5-4 and neither had any leg room We were sitting in 2 seats by themselves. It was an endurance contest to make it through the flight. I will never fly Iberian Airlines again. It was terrible!!!"
Pros: "On time. Polite crew. Plenty of USB chargers."
Cons: "Crowded waiting area. Seats do not recline. Expensive food on board. Entertaining is only for people who sign-up to ‘another’ website. Iberia already has too many websites, users and passwords."
Cons: "Half way through the flight my screen stopped working"
Pros: "The very friendly and competent attendant. He deserves 5 stars, working alone in cramped conditions."
Cons: "Narrowness of aisle and seats. Minimal legroom and an average person had to bend to get in and out of seats."
Pros: "Everything abou the airline. The boarding was quick, the flight crew were wonderful, the flight was clean and smooth."
Cons: "Passengers moved their seats all the way back without considering people behind them. Very small leg room."
Cons: "Very pleased with overall service and hospitality"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Staff was not very accommodating. Plane air-conditioning did not work well and then as very hot"
Pros: "On time. Great service."
Pros: "Fine for what you paid for"
Pros: "Didn't happen!"
Pros: "I got a connection in Madrid to my destination, but the previous flight was delayed about 30 minutes. I got in the airport about 15 min before the gate closed. The gate that i arrived to my connection flight was around 26 min away. I have a condition on my leg and i cannot run, so i walked really fast through the airport and I was so happy to see that they were waiting for my delayed flight... which is very unusual. Thank you!!!!"
Cons: "We were on the plane for 2 hours before we were offered any drinks (soda, water, etc.) The seats were quite small ( I'm average sized.) and I often felt as if I were slipping off the seat. The aircraft was very warm with poor airflow."
Pros: "Check in was easy. I received an email form the airline tell me where to go for my connection."
Cons: "Very impatient flight attendant. She was really rude to me. Seats were very uncomfortable. The flight was held on the tarmac both departing and arriving to JFK. Botj creating a delay."
Pros: "Direct flight. Great service."
Pros: "It would be much better to get water more often and maybe a few snacks"
Pros: "The crew members always looked me in the eye and made me feel like a human being."
Cons: "Honestly my only complaint would be that I was not given both of my boarding passes when I first checked in in Munich and instead I had to go out and stand in a line for an hour to get my boarding pass for Las Angeles which made me just barely get to my gate on time."
Pros: "My family (four of us) flew FinnAir (Iberia) to Madrid and back and found the service outstanding. The flight crews were top notch, the takeoff and landings were smooth and even, as were both flights, the food was fine, the entertainment was great, and the seats were roomy and comfortable. Overall, a superior experience to any U.S. airline I have ever flown. I would fly them again any time. Five stars."
Cons: "On the return flight from Madrid, we ended up having to board the plane from the tarmac, which was interesting. I can remember decades ago when that was done, but it was a first for us. We checked our luggage, so it was no problem for us, but some passengers had to lug big carry-on suitcases up those staircases. I'm not sure what passengers with disabilities had to do to board. I don't think it was the airline's fault, but it was a little out-of-the ordinary."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat from Iberia Airline.The cushion was almost down to spring. Need to upgrade. Crew are not very helpful. Service is not good. Specially at the Airport, speaking English is very bad. I need an assistance to request for PRM ASSISTANCE for wheel chair, I don't believe that he don't speak English at all, Why would he be in that position. It should have bilingual person. I'm sure whether he pretend too I have walk back & forth to get help for information to have it translate to Spanish. All He does is make priority to all local people, it took one hour to get the wheel chair & then by transfer to intl national airport by bus took another hour, we check in @ 8:30AM by the time we get into the terminal was 12:30PM the flight leave 2 12:45PM. What a service. I will never ever flight with Iberia Airline. What a BAD service. Communication by itself is very very bad, the airline crew hardly can speak English. We have 6 people. We will definitely not recommend Iberia Airline. Thank you."
Pros: "Love Kayak. Everything excelkent."
Cons: "This is a horrible airlline. No inoformation or connecting here info in Madrid, no agents anywhere to be found. Online check-in malfunctions food was the worst food I ever saw. Airline causes huge amount of unecessary sress."
Cons: "The seat did not recline, a bit ridiculous for a plane that size"
Pros: "Not muchl"
Cons: "Late Seats were not comfortable No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking were the best things about this flight. The piloting was smooth too."
Cons: "Stewardesses were unfriendly and rude. Long flight, without individual entertainment on seats. Old plane, extremely cramped. The meal request made when booking the flight was not honored. Upon arrival to US customs, was told I was not on the passenger list (thus clearing customs was a bit touchy)."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment. Lots of choice. Food was good and the crew were very friendly"
Cons: "Reduced leg room"
Cons: "Make sits more comfortable, they are terribly uncomfortable for such a long flight at night."
Cons: "Cramped seats. No IFE. Chaotic boarding. Luggage missed flight."
Cons: "Flight was unable to land in Vancouver due to aircraft problem, and diverted to Seattle. Spent the night there; still waiting to get back the next morning. Serious disruption of business day for my wife and me as a result."
Pros: "Everything was perfect! The crew always ready to serve us!"
Cons: "Perhaps, update media features! A small corner for children to keep them "busy"."
Pros: "There was one crew member was passive aggresive and doing his best to annoy the whole trip, I had to get other crew involved, he was hitting on my friend as well....."
Cons: "This was a United flight sold as Air Canada to me and Lufthansa to my friend. This made check in twice as long since we went to the wrong counters. The quality was horrendous for an international flight and the entertainment system was broken. I paid atleast 50% more than I should have. Never fly UA"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive"
Cons: "As much as the flight was truly very good and the crew very friendly and helpful as much as the equipment (airplane, seats, entertainment) really shabby and certainly not worth the the 2500,00 $ I paid for a better seat. I could of flown with Air transat and get better than I got with Air Canada. I feel it was rip off. Quality - price not there . Please give your crew a better uniform. The ones they wear now is very sad and oldish looking. If I think this and am 67 years old, imagine what the younger generation thinks."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Great food. Good entertainment system. I sat in premium economy so can't say what the economy section was like."
Cons: "Plane was damn cold!"
Pros: "The flight was running late due to technical difficulties but they did take good care of us. Even the rescheduling of the connecting flight was easy."
Cons: "No AC for the first 30 minutes after boarding so it was wacky hot and stuffy."
Pros: "Crew on board pleasant and fluent."
Cons: "Check in at Boston rather snotty. Lounge atrocious. The employee at the gate was not able, or willing, to help with seat mix up on next lap, Toronto/Santiago"
Cons: "For 2 1/2 hours the baby was kicking the back of my seat. I Thurber around a few times, said something once the the so called parents were not willing to help. I mentioned it to the flight attendednt but being a full flight there were no seat. Changes available. The parents even switched seats but only with each other, they kept the baby behind me. I can only hope they have a baby kicking their seat in the future"
Cons: "The worst flight I have ever had. I am tall and this large plane was fit only for dwarfs. My knees were jammed into the seat in front of me and I could not move during the 3.5 hour duration. As a result of this experience I will NEVER fly air canada again. From now on it's whatever airline can treat it's customers with dignity."
Pros: "The plane was clean and seemed very new. The boarding process was streamlined in an organized way. The entertainment system was okay."
Cons: "The plane was a huge B787 Dreamliner and the airline didn't allot enough boarding time to accommodate the hundreds of passengers that needed to get on and settle in. Because of this, the flight was delayed by almost an hour and many people missed their transfers. It seemed like an unreasonable lack of foresight to schedule only the standard half hour before takeoff to board ~300 passengers.On top of that, the flight was roughly four hours long (five with the delay) and no complementary food, even a small snack or two, was offered. The seats in coach were made to be decently comfortable padding-wise, but I felt more packed in like a sardine with the people next to me than on other planes. The flight attendants seemed extremely stressed and overworked, and I couldn't blame them."
Pros: "Good flight, great crew members. Seats were comfortable and there were good entertainment options."
Pros: "Fast and strait forward boarding procedure. It was short but international flight, easy check in. Good impression from TSA work - flight departure was not from international terminal maybe that’s why?"
Cons: "Additional charges for check in bags, snacks during the flight, no headphones offered on board for entertainment units."
Pros: "Friendly staff, scent collection of media on offer."
Cons: "Size of the seats, baggage fees, insulting attitude of the baggage check in staff in MTL."
Pros: "Ease of checking in, timely announcements and updates. Smooth ride"
Cons: "weather grounded non stop flight... required my finding a hotel for overnight... loss of MSP hotel, and two days rental car, too... costly and not reimbursable because "act of nature"... earliest way to MSP they said was via Nashville w/long layover... then connecting to Delta upon arrival in MSP, checked bag didn't arrive... it was filled w/medical equipment and AC couldn't tell us where it was... Delta bent over backwards to assist... AC was non-commital and not helpful at all... waited for incoming flights at the airport MSP for 8 hours... no bag... finally, Delta gave us vouchers for dinner and put us in a hotel... when it as really Air Canada's fault... etc, etc..."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft"
Cons: "Not gourmet not even fast food. A lot of area for improvement."
Pros: "Les sièges étaient spacieux."
Cons: "2 vols chez Air Canada, 2 vols annulés !! Plus de 4 h d'attente à l'aéroport !! 1 vol en raison de la météo (no comment) et l'autre en raison d'un nettoyage à faire de la réserve de carburant... Dédommagement minime de 10$ pour s'acheter qch en attendant !! J'espère avoir plus en contactant le service client..."
Pros: "Great service. Only one other person in business class. Very pleasant flight"
Pros: "nice lie flat beds."
Cons: "it was all good."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Departure lunge has bizarre layout. Most seating is in cafe's. No separate seatin area for boarding meant a melee around the gate blocking th path of people walking passed. Premium Economy seats were hard and uncomfortable, meals were below par and the entertainment system sound was shot. I tried three seats and each were unintelligible. Crew was less than stellar."
Cons: "Due to icy weather we missed our flight from Montreal to Las Vegas Wed Jan 4. Could they not have waited for the delayed flight from Ottawa to facilitate this connection? Many people had to wait overnight in the plastic airport chairs until the next flight at 8am Thurs Jan 5th. At that late hour could not the lights be slightly dimmed, the heavy beat pop music loop discontinued, and a dispensary machine with water, coffee or tea be in the departure area? There was none and the other shops had closed. It was overly bright, noisy and impossible to stretch out on the seats with rigid dividers."
Pros: "Flight timings were perfect for my schedule. Boarding and departure were timely as well."
Cons: "I flew from YEG -YYZ and the flight was delayed. It's a good thing that the 2nd flight was delayed or else I would have missed it and no AC employee was interested in helping me make my connection. There were several people on the flight that had connections and were trying to rush off the plane."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. No leg room at all."
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "1. Plane had "mechanical" issues and was delayed 2. Seats are horribly uncomfortable 3. No free snacks or food at all on a 6 hours flight This was my first flight, and unless AC is significantly cheaper than other airlines, I won't me flying AC again as a result of the above."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew."
Cons: "I was held aside at the customs area and had a difficult time figuring out what was going on. Signage was less than helpful, and staff were unaware of why I was being held. After over 30 minutes during which the gate staff could only tell me to wait and watch for my initials on the electronic board, the staff learned that some bags on my arrival flight had been accidentally diverted to Canadian customs rather than US customs, and passengers could not proceed to connecting flights until our bags were located. The customer service staff then worked very hard on our problem. I was instructed to re-book my flight, since by now the doors were about to close - but that customer service person could not re-book me, and I had to queue up again for another agent. When I got to the desk, that agent was able to get me approved to board my flight sans bag, ran me to the front of the Immigration line, and got me to my gate in time to board. I deeply appreciate her assistance, as my family was already on the plane."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew was nice, accommodate well. Sit lean back okay, good convenience of charging mobile device. Food was okay. Entertainment good choices."
Cons: "Where do I start? Baggage check in is horrible and long. Wait in line for 1 hr with all counter open. Process just too long and too slow. Unclear of instruction for paying extra baggage. Security at gate taking too long to get through. Seat is too small, a larger person took almost 1/3 of my seat for the duration of flight and he wasn't that big. No noise control in aircraft, couldn't sleep at all (9hrs flight), kids and adult taking, playing like there home. The cabin smell very very unpleasant, due to body odor of passengers. Only 4 restroom for whole economy class, but 6 restrooms for 40 passengers of business class Due to the region of the air liner at, majority of passengers were rude, obnoxious, loud, and really really smell."
Pros: "Shirt fight, friendly attendants, provided entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing in particular. Everything was adequate, though the carry on space was limited."
Cons: "waiting a long time for some one to take us down stairs in the wheelchair to go to wash room ,and to collect our suit cases, and there was no wheelchair at the Plane exit door we have walk half way before we get one part way again, that when we wait very long she have left me and walk down stair, until a nice lady came and take me and let me went to the washroom and get our suit cases and take us to our passenger pickup. Every thing else was good. Thank God for a safe flight to and from I love to fly with AIR CANADA CHARLES GRAY"
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "The price was decent."
Cons: "I was travelling with a 13 yr old and expected to be seated together when I booked. I didn't know I needed to pluck my seats if I didn't want to pay extra. The woman at boarding moved our seats, however, closer at boarding, which I thought was pretty considerate."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No personal TVs. Could download the app however staff notified you of this after already on board and free wifi was not available. I could have downloaded it while waiting at the gate of they announced it. Also, my overhead light didn't work. I couldn't watch anything or read. Very long flight without being able to do these."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the brownie with dinner was tasty"
Cons: "The plane didn't have video screens and didn't warn us to bring any entertainment so it was very boring. The plane smelled like urine. the crew had like tissue boxes sprawled on the floor. Bathrooms were not cleaned during the flight and there were tissues everywhere. The dinner was terrible. I had the pasta and it was just gross tasting. I don't even know what kind of sauce they tried to put on it."
Pros: "Food was reasonably good, and seat had enough legroom, more than in some airlines I have flown recently."
Cons: "very disorganized. website for checkin was indecipherable. I had to call Air Canada, which charged me for the call (15 centimes per minute) then put me on hold, only to finally learn that I could only check in in person because we were traveling with a pet. --- We paid extra for preferential seating, and when we got to the counter were told that we could not have those seats bcs we were traveling with a pet - the pet was acknowledged on our records and travel documents, yet the company allowed us to sign up for preferential seating, then would not let us access those seats, but our previously reserved window seats were gone and we were assigned aisle and center seats, which were then changed again to other aisle and center seats. --- Half the flights on the departure board, including ours, were delayed, alhto there were no weather problems. Both our plane and the plane in the gate next to where we were waiting had mechanical problems - a coincidence, or a repeated failing?"
Cons: "I booked a flight for 8pm on Friday 7/29. Night of 7/28, I found out my plans changed and wanted to try and find an earlier flight. I called the help line and waited on hold for 1hour and 45min. The man I spoke with was able to move my flight to 12:50p for $200 change flight fee and $207 ticket difference. I arrive at the airport for this flight only to learn that the man last night moved my flight to the next day, Saturday 7/30. After over an hour of waiting and pleading, the check in attendant was able to get me back on my original flight and return the monies I paid for the seat change. However I had to wait at the airport for 8 hours until my flight, after wasting 2 hours on the phone and another hour at the check-in desk... 11hours total. THEN, they cancelled my 1:30pm return flight and could only get me on an 8pm flight, so another 8 hrs of waiting around. Customer service was terrible throughout. Will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."
Cons: "Everything from customer service to flight."
Cons: "We left 2 hrs. late. I had only 45 min. to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Had to run through that huge airport with a broken toe!"
Pros: "Some crew members were nice."
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and helpful, providing water throughout the flight."
Cons: "AirCanada did not schedule a long enough connection in Montreal. Procedures were not explained well, either. I had to run to my gate to make my connection because it took over an hour for my checked luggage to be approved so that I could go through Customs. I was not the only person who experienced this problem. Several people on my flight missed their connection, and several still waiting when I left were in danger of missing their connection. I have flown on other airlines through other cities internationally and never experienced this type of issue."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Pros: "An Air Canada rep over the phone"
Cons: "Gate agent, zero entertainment (and no warning that we should download an app inside airport), poor food, flight attendant wouldn't bring coffee to us (made us go to the back)"
Pros: "You want comfort? this is the way to go."
Cons: "Entertainment on short flight was limited."
Cons: "No viewing screens and fewer selections of movies from air canada app compared with selection from vancouver to tokyo. I don't know why our return trip was so different."
Pros: "Boeing 787 is a terrific modern aircraft."
Cons: "Due to an hour+ boarding delay, the gate area was overwhelmed with people concurrently boarding international flights at two comingled gates. Overlapping PA announcements, both live and prerecorded, had lots of folks confused."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Keep traveler's updated on delays."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Pros: "Great flight - very nice crew and service."
Cons: "A few dirty cups were left behind from the previous flight."

Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but overall not bad."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Airbus seats comfortable but not the same on the Boeing 747"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Cons: "A very old B757. late departure. No explanation."
Pros: "Everything was fast"
Cons: "emtertinment screens in the front Row couldn’t turn Iran’s it was a midnight flight."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "All the way we had a great atencion from all the crew and airport facility thanks"
Pros: "The fare was less than Southwest"
Cons: "I always regret it when I don't fly Southwest"
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "Kayak notified me of the delays before United. Crew was nice. Ramp agents worked hard to get everyone on board quickly"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour and 42 minutes. First delay notice too close to incoming aircraft arrival so you knew it wasn't an accurate adjusted departure time."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "so uncomfortable seating. united website wofirst offered us $200.00 each because flight was overbooked.we declined. united would not let us check in online due to having no bags. we had to go to airport desk who then sent us to kiosk. we used the kiosk and machine said we had to talk to an agent, who inturn had to see the see the size of our bags. (she was miserable). then she printed our a boarding pass without seat assignment. we then had to go to gate agent who told us we had to wait a couple of minutes. we returned to the gate agent who again said we had to wait .(she was miserable too!!) all the while, for 2 days, we thought of that poor man assaulted on the united flight as they forced him out of his seat and off the plane. was this going to happen to us??? we sat and watched many many crew members board, crew that did not work on the flight. finally we were given out boarding pass with a seat assignment . HATE UNITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"

My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Flight was on time. Good flight crew."
Cons: "No entertainment on flight."
Pros: "The Indianapolis airport"
Cons: "The plane is too small, I'm 6 foot 4 inches tall and there no leg room, my leg was raising the middle arm rest, I apologized to the guy next to me...he was cool about it. The plane does not absorb turbulence very well. That plane is to small for a flight that is a little over 2 hours"
Pros: "Everything about my experience"
Cons: "The pilot should speak louder in his announcements"
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "Delayed a lot"
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."

Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"

Pros: "Delta airline"
Cons: "floght delay ; at least 3 times for me!"
Pros: "Predictable flight; service was fine, food/bev was standard for a european carrier and better than an American carrier. Seat pitch seemed slightly below average for transcontinental. Boarding was fine. IFE works great. Quick flight. Really liked the little tiny separated economy section in front of the bathrooms. Felt like the economy cabin you find in the upstairs of a 747 or A380."
Pros: "newer, quieter jet"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating during the flight"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours, with not much explanation"
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"

Pros: "I was treated outstanding by United Aorlines throughout this entire trip."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Pros: "We boarded on time, I was upgraded to first class because the flight was overbooked, the flight was quick (shorter than it was meant to be), the crew was extremely friendly, i got my bags from gate check immediately after I landed. Overall a great airline experience!"
Cons: "This is the only time I've flown that I can say I have no complaints !"
Cons: "I was told I had a confirmed seat after a cancelled flight and showed up the next day to find out it was given to someone else. No help was giving took us three hours to finally get help"
Cons: "I was told that despite weather delays I would definitely make my connection on time and to "stop wasting the agent's time" with my questions. Of course I missed it, spent Christmas night in the Houston airport, and nearly lost my job for missing work the next day. I would never fly United again."
Cons: "Lost my bag and didn't give me enough information on giving it back"
Pros: "Impressed with the professional and yet friendly service. Engaging flight instructions Communication about flight; taxi - take off & landing Full flight late in the day but as welcoming as the first flight of the day."
