Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew and service were welcoming, caring and attentive"
Cons: "Many people bring the own headphones these days, but I didn't and provided phones were so-so, volume on touch screen was jumpy too,"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was good"

Pros: "Comfortable"

Cons: "The flight was late to Helsinki and we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona that was also on Finnair. I was given a hotel voucher to a nice hotel with a complimentary dinner voucher. The dinner was a buffet that was limited and less than mediocre. A chicken option was not even provided, no soup"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very long delay, got bumped for a flight the next day. Horrible experience"

Cons: "Had to wait for substitute crew, and they had a bad attitude. Crew could be heard complaining as they sat in rear."

Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "Choice of movies"

Cons: "Never made it to Chicago on original flight due to delays."

Pros: "I liked that there was a smaller airplane on LED - HEL route: it gives more "feeling of flying" than the bigger planes do."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that it was not indicated in advance (when the tickets are sold) that LED - HEL route is operated by a different airline, even though that airline is a Finnair's partner. It would have been better to have a complete information up front. But the airplane and crew were excellent."

Pros: "The flight was good! Much better than US domestic carriers with comfortable seats and a good layout to the aircraft."
Cons: "Food was good, not great. Crew was attentive but missed being great by one notch and the flight could have been faster. All trifling details. But overall... If they didn't run out of chicken on the flight"

Pros: "I flew in economy. 9+ hours from ORD to HEL. The seat was average size. We were provided with a pillow, blanket and headphones. I did not use the in-flight entertainment, which was on an LCD screen. It was warm, so i didn't use the blanket. I also brought a neck-pillow, which is vital on overnight flights. They served a full dinner shortly after takeoff: I had meat lasagna which wasn't that bad, along with corn, a roll w/ butter, two saltine crackers with decent cheese and a chocolate pudding. Upon waking, I ate the breakfast, which was scrambled eggs and two sausages and a roasted tomato, a roll with butter, fruit cup and orange juice, coffee on the side. All pretty good, it was nice to have a meal before deplaning in Helsinki and waiting to get through passport control. Attendants on this flight were quite friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. No problems with luggage. All in all, a real bargain price, and I got more than I bargained for."
Cons: "As for the downside, I had no significant disappointments on the long leg of my flight on Finnair. I hope my return flights will be just as good."

Pros: "many choices of films to watch was great too! Like that you served Finnish food!"

Cons: "The 40 min layover between SVO-HEL and HEL-JFK required security check and walking approx. 30-gate distance. It was well organized, but still straining."

Pros: "1)Magazine says you under need for modern communication and aiming to improve. There are no chRging ports and no internet. That would help. A little behind the times on that one, do t you think? 2) Getting gangway attached after landing appeared to be very innefficient. Thanks for trying"
Cons: "Crew great!"

Pros: "Crew was proffessional"
Cons: "The crew did not use air freshener and some passenger smell really bad."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "Spacious plane"
Cons: "Could not select convenient seats with companion, food and entertainment very mediocre"

Pros: "Clean, well-designed, individual screens with numerous good movie choices. They came through on our special meals, friendly flight attendants. Also loved Helsinki airport. Not crowded, nice staff. Good food choices. Even passport control was friendly and there was no line."
Cons: "Connecting through Helsinki added hours to our travel time, but after flying American nonstop JFK to Paris on way over, may be worth it. American flight didn't even have individuals screens and blankets left fuzz all over my clothing."

Pros: "Everything was great. They made a nine hour flight actually enjoyable."

Pros: "Blueberry juice!"
Cons: "No food."

Cons: "No seating available at the gate. People had to sit on the floor or stand"

Pros: "The accommodations made me feel like I was in first class!"
Cons: "The screaming child behind me ):"

Cons: "Problem with baggage"

Pros: "The crew were lovely, as were the people checking us in at the airport!"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours to fix a water problem on the tarmack and were seated in the middle of a large group of school kids. Would have been happier without those 2 elements."

Pros: "It was a British Airways flight, plane was large, and felt more roomy than what I'm used to. The service was impeccable."

Cons: "I sat in the window seat. Trying to get out of the row is very difficult. The arm rests do not rise high enough to get around without needing to climb over them."

Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and after boarding other passengers were being moved to the same area that I had paid for an upgraded seat FOR FREE!"

Cons: "I had a seat on an aisle, which was good. But, the TV / video screen did not work. Luckily there wasn't a passenger next to me, and I used that screen. I told the steward, but never got help with the screen. I had to " Lean " for the 9 hours. The bathrooms became gross after 5 hours. I don't need to explain."

Pros: "Nothing!!"

Pros: "Food on into fight inedible..No Food on domestic. Charge for everything."

Pros: "Pretty quick to get on board, entertainment was great, seat comfort was good., wifi and prices were stupidly over priced and slow.,"
Cons: "American Airlines as usual has overly priced non-working wifi on a 10.5 hour trip.. He food was ok at best.."

Pros: "I did get to move away from complaining passengers but "lost my coat" in the process. People are awful and obnoxious"
Cons: "Who doesn't turn off the plane lights at night inside the cabin? Especially when you're feeling late at night? Didn't post gate until very last minute…LHR..Then it said boarding immediately. Nowhere to get water. Hurriedly Boarded plane to find out we have the sit there an hour. Girl next to me was so childish Loud mouth complaining because she couldn't sit next to her bf."

Pros: "Wonderful service from the crew, especially given that we were traveling with a toddler and an infant on such a long flight. Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Great airline. Food great comfortable seats."

Cons: "Some food has too many preservatives, margarine served instead of butter."

Pros: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off. Completely ruined plans we had made for our first day in London"

Pros: "The flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their jobs, they all were very nice and smiled not like other airlines where the attendants are very stiff and anything you ask for seemed to annoy them. Drinks sizes more generous than most airlines."
Cons: "a long flight from lax to lhr needs more snacks and refreshments"

Pros: "Travelled on B A Air Bus. I found it to be comfortable compared to previous flights operated by other airlines. Crew was excellent Overall it was a very good experience."
Cons: "The food - well it's airline food - ok but nothing exceptional."

Cons: "When I arrived to board my flight I was highly unsatisfied with the excessive charges I received for my luggage that was overweight (only by 7 pounds). I was not only charged an additional $100 for my second checked bag, but I was also charged $200 for the extra weight. As a college student traveling abroad for 6 months, I did not expect to be bombarded with these fees at the beginning of my journey. Due to this experience, I would like to have been notified ahead of time of the expected charges as it made me uneasy before a long flight."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats were very small"

Pros: "Friendly crew and clean plane. I liked the ipads and the drinks. It was pretty quick and easy."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence the entire way and as it was a smaller plane you could feel it for most of the flight. The food was also not very good..."

Pros: "For once the seats have enough space. Airlines think we are cattle and that they can pack as much as possible every airplane. For once I was glad to have a confortable experience."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Miserable, ancient entertainment system that had to be restarted 3 times"

Pros: "I loved the flight it was o. Time the flight crew was great"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "The crew was just fantastic. ...."
Cons: "I request special meal. ..unfortunately was not provided to me."

Pros: "The flight was fantastic. It wasn't a full flight so I was moved to an exit row for more leg space. All the crew was very nice except for one lady. They distributed water often which was nice. You get options for dinner and breakfast."
Cons: "My problems began after landing. I booked a flight from LAX to Amsterdam, with a layover at Heathrow. When I originally checked in, they didn't send my things all the way through to my final destination. I had to exit the airport at Heathrow to retrieve my bag and go back through security, while trying to make my connecting flight."

Pros: "Brilliant direct flight"
Cons: "The cost could be a lot cheaper"

Pros: "Arrived on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Food, drink, and movies were great! Gotta love the A380 and British Air"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were tight"

Pros: "I got an aisle seat right near the bulkhead with so much leg room. There were so many free amenities. It was the biggest plane I'd ever seen - very well kept and clean. Crew was nice and quick with service."

Cons: "No WiFi."

Cons: "Some form of entertainment"

Cons: "For a major carrier in Europe we expected more. Be Be prepared to pay for food and even a drink on a domestic flight. Seats tiny barely any leg room. Crew members appeared to be having a bad day not many welcoming smiles. I guess if you had to budget just pay use one of the other carriers"

Pros: "The crew was mediocre, nothing special. I asked for a extra pillow and was denied. Seats were cramped, I expected more from British Airways but comparing them to China Eastern, I found China Eastern more memorable."
Cons: "I expected more from British Airlines, maybe my expectations and reality didn’t chive?"

Pros: "I did not"

Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."

Pros: "Moving to window seat appreciated"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable"
Cons: "No complementary water on Baird."

Pros: "I appreciated regular fluids; water and juices being brought around as this was quite a long haul-13hrs. Staff were good, although I would say less"
Cons: "The food was still ho-hum, ordinary. I would have thought exiting Singapore food could have been very tasty, some spice etc."

Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"

Pros: "We were given a voucher for our meals ."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled after all passenguhaf boarded due to some mechanical problems. Big issue with hotel accommodation."

Pros: "At least we were able to wait in the lounge."
Cons: "One of the jet bridges malfunctioned. Had to board >500 passengers via remaining bridge. An hour late departing."

Pros: "Crew was extremely nice"
Cons: "Felt packed in like a tin of sardines. Extremely uncomfortable flight."

Pros: "We didn’t make the flight from London to Rome because of flight delays. there was a huge time delay with our plane sitting on at the terminal and unable to de-board due to scheduling errors. This delay prevented us from making our connection to our next flight and now we are staying in a mediocre hotel for the night and have to wake super early and miss a day of fun at our final desitination. In general I would just move on, but we heard the customer service agent reference that they over booked the two flights to Rome. I guess we were the u lucky customers x two flights because we didn’t get a standby seat in the next flight then the prior agent gave us positive hope that we would get on. Lesson- make sure you have at least 3 hours between connecting flights."
Cons: "Hearing that we were booked on an overbooked flight."

Cons: "Seats are too cramped and not able to fit a person 6feet tall, back pain for a week afterwards Food services were slow small and some of the crew rather crabby. Plane was old and screens not working for entertainment that was also not very interesting."

Pros: "It was a very short flight, so no discomfort to speak of. Boarding was easy and crew was cheerful."
Cons: "Even on a short flight, I don’t think you should have to pay for water!"

Cons: "air condition from above and from everywhere, it was too cold for me."

Pros: "Nice new plane. Spacey."
Cons: "Ba.com app is flaky. Looks like s/w not tested properly"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The service was bad"

Pros: "The Crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "It was a little cramped for space for my legs and I am not very tall."

Pros: "The crew of British airlines were nice"
Cons: "Changed flight , couldn’t check in. I bought ticked on kayak but vayama was the actual ticket seller on behalf of Iberia which is a British airlines company. I couldn’t check and and customer service of vayama didn’t want to help and asked me to call Iberia. I called Iberia and after staying on hold for 40 min they told me to use the same confirmation number of Iberia flight on British airlines website. After a long day and a long and expensive uber ride I made it to sfo to see the flight has been delayed... never ever ever going to buy an international flight from Iberia, and very hesitant about kayak redirecting sales."

Pros: "Routine departure"
Cons: "Booked emergency exit for legroom but did not get it due to full flight."

Pros: "The entertainment was great. The food was enjoyable and happy to see they offer vegetarian choices. Overall great experience."

Cons: "For long trips I do not think I could do the standard class again. There was not enough room for me at 2 meters tall and I was rather uncomfortable in the middle seat"

Cons: "Food was dry for dinner and not very tasty. Breakfast was terrible"

Pros: "We didn't have the chance to like anything. But, they did find us another flight that took 8 hours longer to get home."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight AFTER we checked in!!! We felt stranded in Barcelóna."

Pros: "The price of the flight offers is what made me purchase through kayak, but the disconnect with the airline and booking agency left me stranded and ultimately required me to buy a flight directly that will take me almost half a year to pay off not to mention the inconvenience of switching airports and sleeping on a bench for 4hrs."
Cons: "When I missed my flight, the airline would not offer assistance because I booked through an online vendor (webjet through kayak) and when I called webjet they failed to help me rebook, made me buy a new flight, then when I called looking for the flight information, they managed to cancel the flight and then claimed I had requested this when I had done no such thing. On top of this they only offer next calendar day booking so even though they are fully responsible for botching up the second flight I booked. I have talked to 10 individuals from different agencies. Everyone passes blame and responsibility off on someone else. On top of everything else, noone but the American Airlines representatives showed any empathy or concern for my being stranded for the night. Based on this experience, I will do everything in my power to dissuade people from using Kayak, webjet, amadeus and British Airways."

Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "No refreshments (not even coffee or tea) on an international flight. I expect that from EasyJet but not BA."

Pros: "Large seats, fast service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Movie choices were great."
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal well before day of flight. They said they did not have my order. Thankfully there were still vegetarian options (and I was at back of plane)."

Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"

Pros: "Flying in 787 is always a joy. Quiet; great movie and music selection; nice contemporary user interface."
Cons: "The seat legroom was not the worst I had but sleeping in the chair was somehow very hard. I think the seat needed a little more backward inclination. There was a headrest, which was a good idea but didn't work out as expected."

Pros: "Food was good-but that was because I ordered a special meal. Normal food service, which I have experienced previously, is mediocre"
Cons: "Questionable reasons for delay-we were told that plane had to be recalled to check "loading issues" which subsequently turned out to be "clerical error??' Worst possible airline for legroom really cramped and uncomfortable seating Really limited entertainment options for movies and tv shows compared to US carriers."

Pros: "Movie selection was great!"
Cons: "Short staffed. No coffee with breakfast! Cream and sugar on tray. Flight from London to Stockholm delayed one hour due to air traffic!"

Pros: "Comfort. Entertainment. Service. Comfort. Did i mention it was comfortable? Also dark. Very dark. Which is exactly what you need on a long flight. Food was also exceptionally good for an airline. The bathrooms were also clean and had nice sinks."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight"

Pros: "we got a 787 dreamliner, the coach seats had good space between rows, so we had enough legroom. food - dinner - was tasty, and breakfast was plain but was completely OK. entertainment was excellent, lots of new movies, and also older movies and TV programs. crew was courteous and very helpful, and boarding was quick and smooth. all in all, a very positive experience."

Pros: "nice modern electronics"
Cons: "breakfast high in calories but very low in pleasure"

Pros: "Good service friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Plane was extremelly cold.Came back with bronchitis, missed day of work.Attendent claimed they do not have blankets, but at least came later one with one. Seat could have been broken was uncomfortabe sit on,"

Cons: "The service was terrible and staff was unpleasant"

Pros: "Staff where very pleasant."
Cons: "Airport check in was drastically understaffed. The worst I have experienced. Airplane seating was cramped."

Pros: "Boarding was straight forward with the automated scanning of boarding pass."
Cons: "I was totally taken aback that I had to pay for tea and coffee. After having to pay for baggage and to reserve my seat for the flight. At least beverages could have been offered at no additional cost. Very disappointed with BA."

Pros: "Timeliness and service were decent"
Cons: "Food and leg space were mediocre"

Cons: "Nasty food! Frozen solid salad."

Cons: "baggage was lost"

Pros: "Timely departure; early arrival. Customer service oriented crew. Due to an oversight on the crews' part (turbulence during distribution of meals), my neighbor and I were not provided meals. When they eventually discovered their oversight and our choice of meal was no longer available, they provided us with meals from first class. Applaud owning a mistake and fixing it."
Cons: "Chair configuration is appalling. Paid extra to sit in exit row of standard economy, seat 30J (middle seat). Leg room was ample, seat width was adequate (for someone of small stature) but separation from neighboring seats was non-existent. My neighbors on either side were both plus-sized. I had nowhere to place my arms and effectively had to sit with my arms folded from SJC to LHR. Room for improvement."

Pros: "Customer service from SFO to YVR. The BNE to YVR customer service wasn’t good when I came, particularly from the Brisbane airport staff, but going back, it was great."
Cons: "Better food, otherwise good"

Pros: "Plane landed at 1511, at Gate at 1525 (a bit slow), I'm through customs (only 50 people in line?!) and at the baggage carousel at 1535 (long legs) and my bag is already there waiting for me!! I'm outside having a smoke at 1538! How do they do it?"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."

Cons: "My dad didn’t get on the plane because the previous one was late"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The seats were ridiculously small. It was so uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."

Pros: "Great flight, on-time, comfortable for economy class, food was decent for airplane food, free wine"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly to some other passengers, they had to wait hours for coffee. Long layover"

Cons: "waiting so long for baggage"

Pros: "The attendants were particularly helpful and clearly loved their job. One attendant, Melissa, was joyful and accommodating."
Cons: "The food was eatable but it was airline food."

Cons: "That had to be the most cramped, uncomfortable airplane seat I have ever been in. And the coffee was awful."

Pros: "Ease of checking in, timely announcements and updates. Smooth ride"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."

Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"

Pros: "The pilots were professional, got us there on time and did a wonderful smooth landing."
Cons: "The flights attendants uniforms were wrinkled and old, tired and worn out looking, their behaviour was the same. They were pretty much tired and disinterested in their job. Time to hire new blood, get new, fresh looking uniforms, and there definitely should be a weight limit, I have seen flight attendants who have to turn sideways to get down the aisle comfortably, what on earth would they do in an emergency. Yes size does matter. Look to JAP airlines for style and dignity in the job. Having said that I love Air Canada and fly it as often as possible home."

Cons: "I couldn't board the plane due to new documentation requirements for travelers transiting in Canada. I understand the rules of the internet fare (no returns, exchanges or cancellations) but the customer service was awful. They didn't offer me any other alternative but to loose full value of the ticket ($1700). Nobody (kayak, vayama, air canada or brussel airlines) gave me any kind of information about those new requirements and I ended up cancelling the whole trip as I couldn't find any other flight to get to Europe. Really upsetting...."

Cons: "My bag did not arrive at the same time I did. It was delivered several days later. I had to buy new clothes with my own money while I waited. Horrible experience."

Pros: "Good movies, had gluten free snack choices, so important"
Cons: "Would LOVE closed captioning ability on the movie screens."

Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."

Cons: "The connection process at YYZ airport. You need to clear security twice in order to connect. Risk of missing flights got connection because the walk to terminal is long and security checkpoint is very inefficient and sllw"

Cons: "The huge line up going through customs"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada pricing is same as other non budget airlines like British airways, Lufthansa but service is on par with budget airlines like Ryan Air. I'm amazed how they get away with it."

Cons: "Gate 91 was allocated on boarding pass. It was switched to 95 Android did not inform anyone of the 10 pax waiting at gate 91. We were informed by one of the passenger that went to figuer out how Come that only 10 pax waiting at gate 91"

Pros: "Seat space, leg room"
Cons: "Crew"

Cons: "I needed Some help with my bag for the overhead bin and the flight attendant didn't help me properly and they said it was too heavy and another got angry and said we will charge you for this next time . If they had helped me with the bag it would not have needed to be checked in and there was certainly no need to be rude about it"

Pros: "Flight departed on time. Good seat pitch in economy. Food and beverages included and tasted good surprisingly. Crew were helpful and efficient. Plenty of entertainment options for film, TV and music."

We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."
