Airline reviews

Cons: "Great flight all around."

Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."

Pros: "My flight got delayed twice. Had to get rebooked."

Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"

Cons: "Cool flight, delayed, seat was in very back of plane, and Kayak did not carry over my personal info such as Known Traveler Number, nor would it allow me to check online."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Idk terrible flight experience with delta"

Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."

Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"

Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."

Pros: "Yes Crew was amazing. Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No comment"

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: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."

Cons: "The intercom was turned up too loud."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "First leg the server “ran” the aisle and I missed drinks/snacks twice. Seats are rediculously in lack of leg space hip to knee area—I’m a 5’10” female."

Pros: "Plenty of room and friendly service was refreshing for such a long flight"

Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."

Cons: "delay"

Cons: "Double booking and payment of flight. Dropped flight bookings. Not a good trip"

Pros: "Excellent check in and boarding service"
Cons: "Cleaning of the airplane could be done better"

Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"

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: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"

Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."
Cons: "The foldable snack tray was broken on the flight to ATL."

Pros: "On time flight arrival"
Cons: "Baggage Claim was very disorganized. They indicated bags were to be picked up at a carousel that was under construction. When we went to the service desk, they directed us to another carousel which was incorrect. There was no announcement made and there was a delay in updating the baggage claim board."

Pros: "Short flight."

Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"

Cons: "No on board entertainment."

Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."

Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"

Pros: "I liked that the plane was newer and the box snack was really good."
Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"

Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "fast efficient and directions are pretty clear tons of delicious food available at PDX to bring plane was comfortable and roomy"

Pros: "friendly flight crew"

Pros: "Delta flight attendants ultimately removing the passenger."
Cons: "The man that called the mother and her son a "F***** b****"."

Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."

Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."

Pros: "We flew 1st class and this was out first time on a 767. Wow! Amazing seats that recline as well as foot rests that extend. USB and electrical outlets, bigger tray tables, massaging seats, etc. I had a special meal request and the flight attendant was very professional and pleasant about it."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great!"

Cons: "Reasonable price"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The "cheese" plate was kinda sad especially for the price"

Pros: "Service was outstanding especially the purser and business class crew. Pillow and duvet were very comfortable and bathrooms were very clean during the flight."
Cons: "Food was way below standard. Pork and noodles were the only thing left by the time They got to me and the taste was equal to Asian airlines economy meals. Maybe even lesser quality. Also food in the Delta Sky lounge was not up to the standards of ANA lounges. Also no passes were handed out upon exiting the plane for special lanes at immigration like the last time I flew. Fortunately there were no lines at immigration so it really didn't matter. It was a nice touch though to be along the same level as Thai Airways or any of the other Asian Business class airlines."

Pros: "We landed safely and the flight was smooth"

Pros: "Delta is cheap, probably for a reason. Also had no food available on a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Delta lost our bags immediately. We were two hours early and had more than an hour between our connecting flights. Our connecting flights were literally next door to each other. However, our bag didn't make it to the connecting flight. No excuse, no explanation. We were on a 3 night vacation, and we didn't get our bags for more than 30 hours."

Cons: "Must have been an older Delta jet. It had no entertainment. The wifi was poor."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed we were deplaned during the delay, always a plus. The flight was fast to help make up time."
Cons: "Take off,flight and landing were a bit rough, but as it was only partially due to weather, understandable. A little difficult to endure the speed and sharpness."

Pros: "First checked bag free."

Pros: "It was empty"

Pros: "Nothing outstanding."
Cons: "Seats Could be more comfortable. The seat was too stiff."

Cons: "Fly was cancelled"

Pros: "I was afraid I my not be able to recline my chair but thankfully it worked, i was so much more confortable than the firts flight."
Cons: "to much use of plastic for the food. The planet is full of plastic. By the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. AEROMEXICO can do something about it, be part of the solution, just by changing the cups to paper cups and the forks,spoons and knifes to reusable ones."

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "No pude tomar mi vuelo por un error entre su plataforma, la de priceline y la de Aeromexico en el que finalmente salí afectada yo.. Es la peor experiencia que he tenido y no volveré a utilizar sus servicios."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Free movies, bags, snack, friendly crew."
Cons: "You promised a full meal, I got a small ball of pasta, zero protein."

Pros: "Hate it the flight."
Cons: "Terrible flight.We should of have the opportunity to sit closer to the the front of the plain considering that we were a family of six with little kids all under the age of 10."

Pros: "I had a lot of space for legs on this one, and was seated o the last row with the fun air crew"
Cons: "Waiting on taxi for an hour before take off."

Pros: "Nice flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Aeromexico systems were down and multiple passengers had to be rechecked at the gate right before boarding."

Cons: "Choice of music and movies limited."

Pros: "No tanta supervisión en el peso de maletas."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Flight on time. Interior airport signage very difficult to find your way around. However airport staff around to help."

Pros: "Again food service was good."
Cons: "On this flight my husbands screen didn’t work at all. So I’m both flights we were forced to share."

Pros: "It would be nice if you could use the AeroMexico app and watch entertainment on your phone, without paying."
Cons: "There was throw up on the row in front of me and since no one on the flight before said anything it didn’t get cleaned up right so it had a smell to it."

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "The food could have been better but it wasn't horrible!"

Pros: "Free tv"

Cons: "No personal entertainment. The plane was too old. No previously allowed to choose seat."

Pros: "The huevos rancheros that they served for breakfast was pretty good and our flight arrived early."
Cons: "It was awful. My original flight was scheduled to depart March 30 at 11:55. Then Aeromexico changed it to 1:35am in March 31. They refused to let me change flights when this happened. I wanted to fly standby on an earlier flight, so I called everyday for 2 weeks to confirm how many seats were left. Everyone I talked to told me I could fly standby if it was he same day as my ticket. I got to the airport and the flight attendant at check in told me “standby doesn’t exist.” When I asked how much it would be to change my ticket, she just said “very expensive.” She told me she’d have to check me out of my current flight and risk me losing my seat on that flight, because it was overbooked just to see the price for the earlier flight. I told her I’d be willing to pay up to $200 to switch to the earlier flight and she told me it was very expensive and she wouldn’t do it. I came back later that night and took my scheduled flight. I carried on my bag from SFO to MEX. On my second flight from MEX to BOG, the attendant told an older woman she had to check her bag because the overhead was going to be too full. I volunteered to check my bag instead so she could keep her bag. Then Aeromexico lost my bag. When I got to BOG, they told me I couldn’t have a voucher because it was my fault for bringing a bag that was too big. Finally they gave me $100 because the next day was Easter and I had no clothes for church. I wasted over 2 hours of my vacation at the Bogota airport while Aeromexico searched for my bag. They said they’d call as soon as they found it. No one ever called. I called and they asked “what color is your bag?” I said “red” and the attendant said they had it. It was delivered several hours after this call despite the fact that the airport is less than 20 minutes from where we are staying. I didn’t think an airline could be worse han United, but Aeromexico steals the cake."

Pros: "Excellent service, plus no extra cost for the carry-on."
Cons: "It took almost an hour to get off the plane at our arrival."

Pros: "we flew clase premier and really enjoyed it. there was cheese and wine to start, then a chicken breast with potatoes along with a courgette salad and then asparagus on the side. the movie selection was good, the seats were comfortable... we were very happy with it."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "On board service, entertainment and food was a nice surprise. Wine and beer offered free of charge with the meal, great movie selection without charge as well and very helpful crew during the boarding process. Seats in economy had plenty of leg room and space on the sides."
Cons: "Food was good and better than my experience with other airlines but still not as good as it use to be a few years ago."

Cons: "Very, very displeased with the care I received from this airline and their lack of communication about the boarding process. Both the gate staff for my flight, the gate staff for other flights, and the staff behind the check-in counters were unhelpful, uncompassionate and seemed to have no sense of "customer care." I ended up missing my flight because of their disorganization, their lack of communication and professionalism, and then, was not helped in the least. I echo another reviewer when I say, "worst experience flying ever.""

Pros: "Good service. Nice to have a meal and drinks for still a relatively short flight. Seats were more spacious than I was expecting."
Cons: "Flights were delayed."

Pros: "Boarding ran very smoothly, nice staff. It was nice having WiFi during the flight. Very good leg space between rows"

Cons: "Delayed flight, customer service was hard to work with."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Didn’t let me board even with boarding pass. Want to chat me multiple fees and charge almost double of a new ticket. I went online and buy a ne ticket. Bad customer service."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "went to Cancun and out of the four flights, only had in flight entertainment once. Ac was barely working and in terms of beverages it was only coke, sprite, water, coffee or juice. Seen better selection on every other airline I've flown in. Seat cushion barely there."

Cons: "No solution was provided to travelers who needed to be at the destination on the originally scheduled date. Had to spend a fortune on another airline to get tinny destination as Aeromexico offered (and as of yet still has not) no solution"

Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."

Cons: "The crew had the worst service and attitude, they didn't ask me for food options, they gave me pasta without asking. Rude manners"

Pros: "The staff handling the boarding were very unorganized. There was a person barely walking and they didn't provide a wheel chair. I asked on her behalf and the answer was "she had to request it previous to her boarding". They only took her to the boarding area and she walked a long way."
Cons: "The rudeness and unorganized staff helping with the boarding"

Pros: "A few seat empty xso we all could stretch"

Cons: "Unable to make flight due to unable to leave the country because they were not getting anyone leave the city and I called to explain situation and nobody could reschedule or give me a refund .

Cons: "Leg room was too small, food was awful, no taste. Bathroom smelled even from take off."

Cons: "Mejorar el espacio"

Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"

Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."

Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."

Pros: "one more bag"

Pros: "Nice meals, attentive staff"

Pros: "Efficient and nothing annoying."

Pros: "On time and easy boarding."
Cons: "I am amazed at how much people bring on board the plane with them and then those of us who only bring the limit, one small backpack are asked to place it under the seat in front of us. This is unfair and causes us to lose leg room. Monitor what people bring on board!"

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Seats were very roomy, both in with and legroom. The whole flight experience was good."
Cons: "Headphones on a short-haul flight were used and we're clearly dirty with dust. Drinks on the flight are quite particular. There were people who asked for beer and got a can, others who asked for the same got just half of the can."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "All was good ..."
Cons: "The dinner alternatives were not available for everyone ... probably because we were sitting close to the last row of seats. That is not acceptable because everyone is paying the same regardless were you are seated."

Pros: "Legroom"

Pros: "Very nice gate crew, efficient boarding, quick and efficient takeoff"

Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."

Pros: "Delays. Gate changes on both flights."

Pros: "Good entertainment set up"
Cons: "Gross smelly bathrooms, only vegetarian meal options"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Several of the seats were broken - not sure why they insist on everyone raising their seatbacks for security reasons while they continue to operate flights where customers can't raise their seats. Maybe this isn't that important after all? The plastic backs of the chairs has clearly been refinished but the finish has worne off or been etched with customer graffiti."

Pros: "The on-board crew were great. Super friendly and chatty. Almost a WestJet feel instead of the serious aloofness that AC is known for"
Cons: "The entire HUGE MESS from booking til sitting on our last airplane. The “new reservation” system is a horrible joke. The right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing so you get completely wrong info and they won’t do anything about it. I’m a wheelchair assist and had to call 6 times to remind them to put it on my ticket even though each time I was shown that it had been added. They kept seating on the back row of the plain and blamed me for not calling ahead to “let them know I was wheelchair assist so they could reseat me” BUT...they won’t answer you call unless it’s 24 before your flight and then to check at the airport who then tells us it’s out fault cause we didn’t call more then 36 hrs ahead...YOU CANT CALL THAT FAR AHEAD...and ...get this “they don’t have wheelchair assist on my ticket/file”. I about lost my mind over the hours on hold and every different answer as to what what to do and in the end blamed us. ASTONISHING TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE THE NERVE ON-BOARD TO ANNOUNCE THEY ARE THE BEST AIRLINE IN NORTH AMERICA 2019...HORSE PUCKY!!!"

Pros: "Lovely staff, new plane, great entertainment options"

Cons: "The plane didn’t have water in the bathrooms in the back of the plane so we had to use wet wipes to clean our hands afterwards. Entertainment system was slow. No complementary meals offered even though it was an international flight."

Cons: "were not served drinks"

Pros: "Great service, easy boarding, good flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats, like everyone."

Pros: "It was quite and smooth"
Cons: "I have never been so hot on a plane. Even with the air blowing on me I was sweating! It was crazy hot!"

Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with enough room for an average person. I like the Embraer 190."
Cons: "Unspecified maintenance issue seemed to manufactured to allow the gate crew to get off the hook for shortfalls."

Pros: "The crew was sweet and friendly."
Cons: "When one is trying to watch a movie, you can't hear anything. The connection was very very poor."

Pros: "Crew was ok, entertainment was great"
Cons: "Seats in ac 787 are very soft, you will feel the knees of the passenger seating behind you, I couldn't fall a sleep, you feel a kick every time the passenger behind you moved his knees. Kosher food was terrible! Not eatible! Plane is very slow l, took 11.5 hours instead of 10 hours with the 747."

Cons: "At the gate, we were told our plane would leave soon. An hour later, they announced the flight was cancelled and we were briskly escorted out of the terminal, told to go through customs and pick up our luggage, which had never even made it on to the plane. They were not re-booking flights at the airport, and the phone lines went to a voice mail message telling us to call back in a few days. I was stranded in Toronto with no phone and no where to stay. It's a week later and I still have not heard anything from from, even though I've called and emailed and sent snail mail."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. Boarding was chaotic. Flight itself was choppy."

Cons: "For an overnight flight I would have expected the lights to be turned off, or at least dimmed. My plan to sleep and enjoy my day of return did not go ask planned."

Cons: "The entertainment system was broken on this flight."

Cons: "Flight delayed numerous times due to no crew and then turned around in flight for landing gear malfunction We were not treated very kindly for inconvenience"

Pros: "4 hour mechanical delay."

Pros: "The price for the flight was right. Nothing can be done about the seat size. Food was ok. Comfort of seats ok. Not easy to recline. The etertainment helped me fall asleep, a Good Thing. Crew was pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "Pearson Airport is a miserable experience for travelers. Security there is very badly managed. Long, long long lines of people waiting without reasons given, getting lost because signage is poor, unable to understand the English of the employees, weeping exhausted children and innumerable check points for showing documents. GET ORGANIZED, Canada!"

Pros: "I appreciated the early flight, that it was a direct flight, ability to make connection and then complete my journey in one long day. It was on time, smooth flight. Appreciated the offer of water regularly during the flight."
Cons: "Surprised that there is no longer even a small complimentary snack offered."

Pros: "Comfort of seats Crew's teamwork"
Cons: "It would be great if you could accept debit cards on board for purchases."

Cons: "People who insist on bringing their "carry on" luggage on board. The cases are clearly over sized and then they get to put them in the hold for free, meanwhile, those of us who are honest about the size have paid to check their luggage from the start. Everyone should be able to check one bag for free and anyone who brings more than real carry on should be charged a fee. It would speed up onboarding and off loading and would not create the danger of suitcases falling on people's heads when they are put in the overhead bins."

Pros: "In wheelchair, traveling alone. Perfect service from gate to gate. Moved my seat to a large one in front, took my carryon for free. All staff nice, great persons."
Cons: "No movies without app and no publicity to download app in advance."

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew courteous."

Pros: "Seats, entertainment"
Cons: "We had to change planes, after boarding the original aircraft, and were delayed almost an hour. We thought the airline (Air Canada) could have recognized the inconvenience with a free drink or extra snack."

Cons: "poor boarding late departure late arrival bad food"

Pros: "Excellent flight from boarding to arrival. The flight crew performed beyond expectation. There were obvious obstacles in their way when performing their duties and customer service. What stood out as stellar was their patience in helping people where english was not their first language. When serving beverages to these passengers the flight attendants would ask what beverage they prefered. Their answers were inaudible and confusing. Attendants displayed container beverage and when it was still unable to understand their poor answers they did not give up. Finally it was understood they would like hot tea, and i noticed they performmed beyond expectation. These asian passengers would clogg the isles for attendants by going to the washroom and visiting other friends on this flight creating serving obstacles. Frankly, I prayed for the attendants when they were climbing over seated passengers and appeared orientationally lost from their seats on this flight. You would think it was their first flight; but then the flight attendant would appear, and in classic manner would ask - Can I help you? I am comforted by the displayed patience, ability to take punishment from disfunctional riders who failed to notice how other passengers behaved and how professionally the crew operated from beginning to end. I always prefer to fly with Air Canada. Thank you!"
Cons: "Jamming the middle seats of the flight with late arriving asian passengers who would have been better off seated together."

Pros: "Flight was good on time ..flight crew good as well coming to toronto from trinidad ..however from toronto was a totsl disaster..long lines with confusion with 3 flights being checked in at once ..sent to other line 1 person checking in people then sent back again across hall to check in baggage ..was ridiculous aa such a big airline n chaos to get on flight ..also left more than an hr later with all the confusion"

Pros: "Entertainment and staff were good as expecte"
Cons: "over 3 hours delayed. no compensation for drinks/food no communications re: options and timing. I would have rather forfeited my seat on yesterday's flight (which didn't leave until after 10pm - scheduled for 7) and taken the first flight out of YVR today. Super frustrating - Have greater expectations from Air canada."

Pros: "I love that I had a direct flight for my destination, from TLV to Pearson Int'l, at a decent price. This is usually hard to come by. The in flight entertainment options are very good. The online check-in process worked very well."
Cons: "The service on my original TLV-Pearson Flight (Dec 23rd am) was not great. The staff sat in the back gossiping the entire time and looked offended every time I came to ask a question or ask for something - they would get silent and just sit there, like I was interrupting an important conversation and so I even offered to get my own stuff. Ridiculous! What happened to customer service? The food is HORRIBLE! Worst food I have ever had on a flight, and I flew to 8 countries this last year, so that says a lot. I'd recommend only eating food you bring, or just starving yourself."

Pros: "I breathe threw my neck & I'm used to putting the air blower on my neck for extra air. These planes had none. We were surprised. And room between the seats was tight."
Cons: "Above"

Pros: "Getting me from point A to point B in one piece is most important, so top marks there."
Cons: "- was told to switch gates twice for the same flight (while lugging my stuff along with me) - both flights were late - flight tracker didn't work from LAX to Vancouver - just a note: on flight from Vancouver to LAX, passenger behind us was talking 5X louder then literally anyone else on the plane. I bought headphones just to drown out his life story."

Cons: "We never got on this flight because we were delayed due to an emergency landing. Couldn't get anyone to help us get home sooner than 24 after when we were originally scheduled to be home in Nashville."

Pros: "The crew- very pleasant and attentive. Also the lady that checked us in at the airport in Barcelona was super helpful and tried her best to get us 2 seats together . She even blocked the seat in the middle of us!"
Cons: "No Entertainment - no screens for such a long flight"

Pros: "The Dublin Airport has a great security system. Very smooth, easy and helpful staff at every point"
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac for a very long time, causing us to miss our next flight. This is not an Air Canada issue. The system in Toronto required another trip through security, lines and lines and lines. Technology that no one understood - very little guidance from Toronto staff except - "go here". It took almost an hour which caused us to miss our MSP flight. If you have an international flight through this airport leave yourself more than 2 hours. We had a two hour window and didn't make it in time."

Pros: "I didn't get on the previous flight"
Cons: "I didn't get on the previous flight"

Pros: "Plenty of beverages provided and friendly crew."
Cons: "Entertainment app had to be downloaded prior to take-off to access many of the entertainment features such as movies."

Pros: "Boarding was extremely smooth. Staff were courteous, flight even left early."
Cons: "We have flown hundreds of times (including Rouge) and NEVER had I had my check in weighed. Evidently it was 2 pounds too heavy and they made me check it, despite it fitting properly in the overhead. If you have these "rules" then Rouge you need to be consistent about implementing them. Rouge seats are NOT comfortable. Absolutely no leg room and paper thin seats. No electrical outlets and a terrible movie selection. I really wish they'd go back to "regular" Air Canada flights."

Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."

Pros: "Food was really good and they passed drinks a few times as well as walking through with water. Staff was friendly"

Pros: "Nice, polite and helpful bilingual crew. Apologetically when trouble started and we had to do two unscheduled stops in Calgary. THe second crew was also very nice but not very bilingual."
Cons: "The fact that we were over 6 hours late, and even with my old age, I went 24 hours without sleep. I missed my ride to the apartment where I was supposed to stay and had to rent a room at an hotel nearby, adding to the costs of the flight."

Pros: "Nice attendants."
Cons: "Air Canada website says some complimentary spirits in Economy but such is not the case. Only entertainment via iPad but no GPS display and not good selections for movies or shows. Low quality dinner and one slice of banana bread for breakfast."

Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. At some point we boarded the plane then asked to disembark it as we were still not ready for take off. They told us there were some weather issues in Toronto ... I looked at 3 different weather channels who said that the weather was mostly clear in Toronto with a few scattered showers."

Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"

Pros: "Great staff"

Cons: "To start, this flight was overbooked which I understand is a perfectly normal aspect of flying. However, the seats on this airline were so close to one another my legs were hitting the seat in front of me. I'm a thin 6' tall man, and I was uncomfortable the entire time. I've flown Air Canada many times but I've never experienced such a cramped seating experience with them. It was as if they added an extra five rows to the plane."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and could recline more than other planes. Had entertainment in the headrests."

Pros: "The crew members in both the flights were amazing. they seemed like they enjoyed their job. Its not very common at Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Toronto was delayed by half hour. But the boarding gate agents did not even mention the delay."

Cons: "Very crowded, small seating and legroom"

Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"

Pros: "La puntualidad"
Cons: "La comida"

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: "The free WiFi and entertainment"
Cons: "The airplane maintenance issues and I missed 3 connecting flights bc of it"

Pros: "The crew was great However my neighboring seat mate tray was stuck. They compensated both of us however those should be check in first class."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"

Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Finally getting home safe and sound."
Cons: "It was close to an 8 hour layover for a 35 minutue flight. We almost made an earlier flight that supposedly had room for our luggage but not us. So when we finally got to Pittsburgh our luggage was just sitting at the terminal unattended. Hundreds of people were delayed or had cancelled flights and it wasn't due to weather or related conditions. It was lack of planes and what appeared to be double-booked flights."

Cons: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They didn't stop boarding until 5 minutes after boarding time. Seemed to be a lot of late comers. We should be pulling away from the gate at the departure time, not just locking up"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants were dis-engaged. No smiles. Not pleasant. RUDE to those wairing for bathroom. Not polite nor particularly helpful. Could not understand pilot at all. No one could dicipher his message. NO emtertainment without extra cost... on 4 1/2 hour flight!! Shame on you United! BOOO. Hardly anyone paid for entertainment. Very boring and hard flight. Will give another airline my $500 next time. Everyone who buys a cross-country ticket should get free entertainment. NO food except one cookie on 4 1/2 hour flight. Are you kidding?? I was starving! A small snack-meal was expected for the high cost we pay for ticket. BOO UNITED. UNTIL UNITED PUTS CUSTOMER SERVICE AND COMFORT FIRST... I and my family will be flying another airline. Very very disappointed."

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."

Pros: "Great selection of movies; on time departure and arrival much appreciated."
Cons: "Food was poor"

Cons: "No early checkin by email so no opportunity to select seats Ended up with middle seat to Portland Not my favorite"

Cons: "2 suitcases out of 6 came broken, the airline did not accept any claim because they say the type of damage is not covered!!!"

Pros: "Great crew great plane super value"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice plane and the boarding was super quick, I don't mind The new skinnier seats."
Cons: "Rude staff, couldn't be bothered with interacting with people."

Cons: "The card reader for enetertainment directv didn't work so I couldn't watch tv for flight"

Cons: "I think, on a five hour international flight that you should not have to pay for your entertainment. Really cheap. And if you have a couple of kids? Since the Go App works for free in the states, why can't they offer that."

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: "Boarding Crew Leg room Entertainment"
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "I was supposed to be the volunteer for overbooking problem, but the ground attendent helped me by arranging a seat for me. If she didn't do that, I would miss my next international flight. I'd like to say thanks here!"

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "Plane was on time, crew were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "Plane was very worn, entertainment was very limited, seat was not very comfortable for business class"

Pros: "free movies on the flight with the united app"
Cons: "The flight attendant was late delaying boarding 20 minutes. Once they started, people were lining up to board. This is a normal behavior however, there employee decided to stop boarding because she said people were crowding. she stop boarding for another 20 minutes. Now, this was a large flight and there wasn't enough room for everyone to stand off to the side. She was rude and there was no reason for this especially when the flight attendant was already late. The plane was delayed 45 minutes due to this"

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!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."

Pros: "The meal that was served was exceptionally good."
Cons: "Is it really that much more expansive to provide complementary movies - personally I never watch the movies but many passengers do - I did not notice anyone who purchased this service."

Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. 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."

Pros: "Wonderful assist personal. Plenty of water/fluids and food"

Pros: "Nothing actually except it was on time.. I do appreciate being able to bring my little dog on board with us although it cost alost as much as another seat. Thanks for letting us bring her."
Cons: "You put us all in very back seats and I am clostifobac.. It WAS HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE... LOuD AND NO RECLINING AND IN A CORNER.. OMG had to stand up most of way to keep from freaking out. And.. I HAD RESERVED MY SEATS..MAKES NO FRICKEN SENSE.. The tkt guy was rude when I told him I reserved our seats and now we are all 3 scattered everywhere alone. I think that's WHY HE PUT US IN THE VERY BACK BEING HATEFUL BECAUSE I WAS NOT HAPPY THAT UNITED DECIDED TO SEPARATE US FROM ROW I TO 30.. Also I am paying to bring my children to Mexico and I can't get points for it. Just sayin..."

Pros: "The flight itself was okay"
Cons: "We were delayed 5 hours. When we got to Orlando the gate would not work and after another delay we were pushed back from that gate to another gate, almost another hour. No shuttle service in the airport at 1:30am. We had to wait for someone to operate it."

Cons: "The cabin was very hot"

Cons: "Poor leg room and elbow room. No drink service just water, unless you were in First Class. I thought I was flying United? Unfortunately the voice of the flight attendant blared through the speakers and she said that there was nothing she could do."

Pros: "The window seat and being able to sleep a little. Smaller plane but a little more room."
Cons: "The ranch mix isn't exactly a breakfast item but at least they tried to feed us something other than just drinks."

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."

Pros: "The flight crew let us know we should anticipate turbulence."
Cons: "No entertainment, no allergy friendly snacks, no help from crew with child kicking me while the mother slept"

Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"

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: "Got us to SFO early crew was good."

Cons: "Seating"

Cons: "That I was charged for the flight again or they wouldn't let me on the plane"

Pros: "Our attendant Andrea M was a breath of fresh air. Always smiling and attentive to our needs . She was great! Ah, if only all UAL and other US airlines flight attendants were like her. Kudos to her!!!"

Pros: "The food ? What's food?"
Cons: "That's only give wather!... Is ridiculous"

Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"

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."

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."
