Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "All great, except limited entertainment and wifi was n.a."
Cons: "Wifi, I was on replacement aircraft and no wifi for the whole flight"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Everything. Air NZ has the best Premium Economy class in the sky."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, very hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "The seating in economy class is abysmal. The seats are extremely small and the rows are to close together. There is no leg room. The seat cushioning is almost nonexistent. It's like sitting and leaning back on a board. On this last trip I had a window seat. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs."
Pros: "The crew was polite, efficient and prompt"
Cons: "The food quality needs improvement!"
Cons: "Had to cancel trip because a passenger was hit by a car one week before the trip. Refused a refund by the airline."
Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."
Pros: "Everything was good except....."
Cons: "The departure gate lounge for connecting flight to Vancouver was terrible.... very overcrowded, making for an unpleasant wait and boarding experience."
Pros: "Generally Excellent."
Cons: "After years of traveling with a Personal Assitive device (many times on ANZ), the pilot refused to carry the device. It is still stuck in Sydney, although they say they will deliver to our home."
Cons: "Perfect flight. Delicious meals. Great crew."
Pros: "Bulk head seats were great."
Cons: "It would have been nice if it had not been almost 2 hours late!"
Pros: "A whole season of New Girl!"
Cons: "Was very crammed."
Cons: "Is it possible to build in a way to tilt the seat bottom up at the front a bit so that when the back is reclined you don'get as sore a bum, and you don't slide forward as much. The seatback recline and headrest were very good."
Cons: "There was only approximately 13 inches for the aisle between seat sections. It was mostly women with big wide hips who kept me awake most of the 12 hour and 34 minute flight, as they brushed my shoulder disturbing my ability to rest."
Pros: "Staff were always happy and friendly"
Pros: "Everything ! Staff was awesome , food was great and hi-tech plane with its entertainment consoles . Touch button options for ordering drinks , food , movies, chatting with other seat passangers , Wow! Blew my mind . We left on time and landed on time too. We had premium economy seats - felt like business class other than reclining level of the seats. Pretty good value!!"
Pros: "Fast transit connections in Auckland, Good times for departure/arrival"
Cons: "When I booked I chose seats, then the aircraft changed and I ended up with the family split. It would have been nice if they had at least sent an email giving me a chance to select new seats"
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"
Cons: "Not clear that I wouldn't be able to check a bag for my return flight. I flew to New Zealand with a large bag and then when I went to check in for my return flight they told me I couldn't check it to bring it back and my only option was to cargo it, which was not helpful being that the cargo was out of the airport and I needed to catch my flight. I was luckily able to check it on a separate flight my boyfriend was going on. But I would have either have had to leave my bag or miss my flight if he hadn't been there. It should have been more apparent that I wouldn't have been able to check it on the way back. It makes no sense to be able to bring a bag to New Zealand and not bring it back. That was very frustrating and overall I was very disappointed with this experience."
Pros: "777 with really comfortable economy class seating, excellent selection of on-board entertainment, convenient A/C power at each seat and very friendly cabin crew made the trip a pleasure."
Cons: "No in-flight wi-fi at any price. I took it for granted they'd have it, probably should have checked first and downloaded what I needed ahead of time."
Cons: "Set seats for 2 middle of 4 middle row E & F seatsw"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."
Pros: "Crew complete meals and drinks efficiently so passengers can settle quickly for night flight"
Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."
Pros: "The seats are super comfy and the staff are lovely and very attentive to ones needs. The only down fall would be that I had to pay for movies and a meal wasn’t included with my flight, but that’s minor. Also, baggage cost me 120.AUD for one bag! I thought that was pretty outrageous for one check in bag. But the pilot was very good and informative as the overall flight was smooth. Thanks again air New Zealand."
Cons: "Over priced check in bag. Due to it not being according to weight. Ridiculous."
Pros: "a) My vegetarian meal the I specially requested. b) The customer service on the phone, before my trip in California and the customer service of the flight attendants on the two flights of my trip. c) The blanket and pillow every passenger was offered on the long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland. d) The pilot or pilots handled the small amount turbulence we on the plane felt well so I did not feel uneasy at those times."
Cons: "For an economy class series of trips, I have nothing bad to report."
Pros: "Food service"
Pros: "The service is great as well as the food!"
Pros: "everything! Leg room, priority boarding even though we boarded close to last, snacks. That safe feeling :)"
Pros: "Great food (most airlines do not serve any), great entertainment system, & cleanliness is superb."
Cons: "Cabin was too cold. I had to wear a jacket most of the flight."
Pros: "Awesome in flight entertainment! Very corteous and polite crew!"
Cons: "Im midsized asian, i the seats are too small"
Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to A/C difficulties, But no big worry for me. I had no other flight to catch in Wellington."
Cons: "Captain's sense of humor."
Pros: "Comfortable flight and service"
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "On-time flights."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Pros: "Very nice experience --- probably my best experience in economy."
Cons: "Boarding started a little later than scheduled."
Pros: "great flight attendants who really seem like they want to be flying. The economy seats are better than most other airlines. I will always check to see if Air NZ flys to the destination I'm going. They are classy."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful. One of our travelers got sick on the plane and, unfortunately, made a mess in one of the toilets. Without batting an eye, the crew took on the thankless task of cleanup. We noticed that the bulkheads had fixtures embedded in them to allow a small basinet to be attached to the bulkhead. One couple used it for their infant and it seemed to be a lifesaver. I don't know of any other airline that offers this."
Cons: "Our seats were more narrow than normal. Almost to the point of discomfort. We did fly on Air New Zealand from Auckland to Christchurch and the seats on that flight were what I would consider a "normal" width. Meals were served in a timely way but the food was just okay - nothing outstanding. But, we did fly coach/economy."
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "Grant Inflight service co-ordintor Shelly To be fired from New Zealand airlines"
Cons: "I will nvr take this airline.. racist"
Pros: "Amazing staff"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "On time service and the captain was good with updates"
Cons: "Everything was fine. Nothing stands out as great or bad."
Pros: "Crew was nice and clean plane."
Cons: "Wasn't aware that on this international flight we needed to do something more to get the basic services. Evidently there are classes of fares that don't rate basic food and drinks. Felt like steerage class. After they rebooted their system we were able to finally order and pay for food and drinks. Never been treated this poorly on an Air New Zealand flight."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and they really made the flight so much better. I loved how short the flight was - just 58 minutes from Vancouver to Portland."
Cons: "This is a turbo-prop commuter flight, so it's fairly noisy; also, there are no USB charge ports or entertainment system."
Pros: "The flight delayed but the crew was really helping! Huge thank to the lady served in the economy class AS2239 on March 4th from Vancouver to Seattle. I was not able to catch the next flight without her helping."
Pros: "The boarding and flight were quick. The prime seat was comfortable (of course I had to pay for it, though it wasn't expensive)."
Cons: "Cause the flight was canceled I have to call the airlines to get the refund, which not 100% refund, it makes me disappointed"
Pros: "Great crew, nice plane"
Cons: "More varieties of snacks"
Pros: "I liked that when due to a medical reason, I was able to be given the option of rebooking my flight even though there would be a penalty and extra charges and I would need to pay the difference."
Cons: "When I called to rebook my flight within the year and about 3 months in advance of the desired date, unfortunately Latam made multiple errors and also told me that rebooking flights only are eligible for more expensive flights. Even though there were other less expensive flights that I was able to find and see online, they insisted the only flight available had a price difference of $4,000+ dollars. the original ticket was around $550 so this was absurd. Not helpful at all, how frustrating."
Pros: "The crew were very polite and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour and no one could explain why."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Delayed, may of been beyond the pilots control. Scrambled seating arrangements."
Pros: "The crew was terrific"
Cons: "The long delay was miserable. Although we would rather be on aircraft that was running like it should. We were dead at that point in our journey and the long delay was very difficult."
Pros: "Even though there was no TV screen in the headrest, we were all provided with IPads to view. The controls on the IPad were quicker than the in headset TV's. The seats were comfortable and we all received a flight packet that included a toothbrush, eye shades, ear plugs and a pair of socks for our comfort! Blankets and pillows were in our seats when we arrived."
Cons: "I missed being able to see our flight path. On a long flight it's difficult to keep track of where we are and now much longer we will be in the air without the flight tracker. My baggage was misplaced, so I was delayed by needing to fill out forms for lost luggage. Thankfully, it was located before I reached my connecting flight."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn’t like everything"
Pros: "The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "Regional gate attendents really didn't seem to care if I boarded or not. Based on my experience this morning, given a choice, I will NEVER fly Alaska again."
Cons: "I spent more than $30 on food and drink, but got my 9rders as part of the normal service, as opposed to faster than those who didn't spend any money. It was painfully slow. the angle of the seat cushion is a bit high."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Alaskan airlines- the care, the ease of getting everything checked in ahead of time, traveling wit the best friend; we both get spookebafbbmbutbiblovenuseb"
Cons: "Small complex, quit for thenfranynlike me - if you’re buy abstragerbwith a grumpy"
Pros: "The plane had far more leg room than typical airlines which was a pleasant surprise. It was newer than most, the flight attendants were polite and accommodating and the ride was smooth!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flew Alaska air - Plenty of leg room and much more than any qantas domestic flight!"
Pros: "Seats are ok."
Cons: "The flight schedule was delayed two times."
Pros: "Great service for an affordable price!"
Cons: "We can't get boarding pass in Taipei. Hence, we have to go through Canadian immigration process to obtain boarding pass, then enter US immigration zone for US immigration process before get on board."
Pros: "Wonderful. Everytime I've been on Alaskan it has been fantastic."
Cons: "The landing was a little rough each time but overall a fantatic experience."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Can’t really think of anything"
Pros: "N/A. Because of bad weather on Vancouver Island, my flight to Vancouver was delayed two hours and I missed my 230p flight to Seattle. Alaska had no other flights available from Vancouver that would get me to San Diego and other later flights that day from other airlines were over booked. I stayed the night and flew out the next morning on a direct flight to San Diego. The flight was fine. The flight crew was nice, they offered us drinks and snacks and the air condition worked. The reason I included the AC is sometimes it doesn't work and that's miserable. There's not too much else to add."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and there was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was only an hour flight, so there was no entertainment. And the seats didn't recline."
Pros: "charging outlet"
Cons: "light delay. no service."
Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Wish there was a direct non stop flight to SMF from YVR"
Pros: "Small plane and short flight. Not too much to expect other than get there on time which they did"
Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "Flight attendants were quick and efficient during a medical emergency."
Cons: "We had two hard landings (in Seattle and again in Ontario - same crew) and hit turbulence coming in toward Ontario that literally forced a flight attendant to her knees in the aisle."
Pros: "Friendly air hostesses. Customer service (3) rounds of drinks and food."
Pros: "The overhead bins seemed to have more space than usual for non-checked bags."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and the flight was late. This was already an evening flight, so the delay meant that I missed the last public transit train once I was home and had to pay for a cab."
Pros: "My snowboard didn't make the connecting flight, customer service had it delivered to my house the very next morning."
Pros: "Flight was quick with wonderful views of the San Juan islands"
Cons: "content with everything on this flight."
Pros: "Mood lighting"
Cons: "No free snacks and $25 per bag surcharge"
Pros: "Great customer service! The crew was super patient with me and a flight issue I had"
Cons: "I never like the drinks offered on a plane."
Cons: "Bag full of very expensive ski stuff lost in Vancouver somewhere---hoping I get it back!"
Pros: "Smooth flight and easy app to handle"
Cons: "Kiosks couldn't read any of my travel documents. Even thought I checked in and about my luggage 24 hours in advance I had to form the line and check in for help."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and exact time"
Pros: "time of flight"
Cons: "The plane was tiny. Everyone had to check standard carry-on luggage"
Pros: "Bad attitude, no info, then annoyed when we asked them anything. All the passengers kept cool and calm. Staff was terrible."
Pros: "The flight was quick and we arrived early. I had more seat room on this flight than on intercontinental planes. Very smooth landing, one of the best."
Cons: "No beverage service of any kind--trip was too quick!"
Pros: "arrived earlier"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "the flight was so short that nothing mattered but it was still a good flight."
Pros: "Great service from the gate and air crew on the flight from SEA-TUS. Very professional and friendly."
Cons: "MFR-SEA flight long taxiing and slow deplaning. Seated in 6a did not get off flight till boarding started on my connector. Short scheduled connection time 35 minutes between flights and terminals. (Arrived at C gates - Departure at N gates)."
Pros: "It's short flight it's ok. Not applicable on entertainment and food"
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Cons: "Late and bumpy"
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "got there on time, no delays. very smooth"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were nice and informative, and everything was on time"
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, half the time the staff did not use the PA system. They were not clear on who needed to do a passport check. Started to read names off then just gave up and said "a lot of you""
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Cons: "I thought I stated this before about the flight (5), Treatment (5) all the rest (5), but Atlanta Airport does not support disabled people using scooters to get from one plane to another. With more people using these, only a matter of time until a reporter males this an ISSUE. Meanwhile I will make every effort NOT to use ATLANTA HARTSFIELD. This includes my wife, also using a scooter."
Cons: "I showed up 2 hrs before the flight. Was told the flight from Toronto to Minn was delayed 30 minutes and go stand in line to speak to an agent. There were approx 20 in line yet only 2 gate agents at 4:30pm. One of the gate agents kept helping the Premium members and bypassing the standard line. The other agent was in a coma as his average person at counter was 10 min. Finally get to counter and they hand me a boarding pass going via Salt Lake in 30 minutes. But has a 3 hrs layover in SL. I then get to US Custom check for US residents re-entering and the line was a good 30 minute wait. You would think the Delta folks would have accounted for that line. I had to ask everyone in front of them if I could skip in front as the plane was now departing in 10 min. I had to then run on a bum knee and was the last to board. The agent at gate was saying we were calling your name but did they think I could have been stuck in customs? On that short of a window they should have walked me through Customs to make sure I got on a flight they wanted me to take versus my scheduled flight."
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Pros: "Reachung my destination"
Cons: "I can appreciate the stress on everybody's mind but this was the worst time i had flying. Short story, 10am thursday-7pm friday. Less short story, 4 airlines, 3 security screenings and 2 customs stop points.7 delays, 2 cancels and 1 miss. It was a ping pong nightmare and 2 times it was suggested i take a bus...after i spent the money on a plane ticket with no offer of compensation, food vouchers or hotel accommodation. Delta has to convince me to come back to them."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Crew was friendly. We got drinks and snacks twice on the 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The cushions are getting thinner with every new plane. That makes for hard surface and an extra rough turbulence experience. Arm rests are almost non existent again very uncomfortable on a long flight. No Monitors in seat so no uou have to 1 have your own device or RENT one from WestJet. No place you put the device, so you must hold it in your hand for hours. VERY uncomfortable."
Pros: "Though there was lots of air turbulence the Crew added humour in executing their duties which made the trip cautious, calm and added comfortable."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Plus and I don't think I can ever go back. Worth every penny."
Pros: "Easy check-in, bag drop off even with elderly person traveling with us. Great staff at the airport."
Pros: "on time ,friendly staff"
Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"
Cons: "Everyrhing was great"
Cons: "Trip from Toronto to NYC should not be so long. Between boarding getting delayed to finding a gate in NY laguardia, it was just extremely exhausting."
Cons: "Hate to have to buy the food!! No entertainment"
Cons: "There is none."
Pros: "Only the boarding was good"
Cons: "My luggage was damaged"
Pros: "In-flight crew was great!"
Cons: "Manager and crew at the check-in counter are incompetent!!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and boarding took forever (much longer than usual and I fly pretty often)"
Pros: "Excellent service and departure time"
Cons: "Everything. FIVE hour delay no apology no meal served and absolutely rude customer service by flight attendants. Will never ever travel at West Jet."
Pros: "The lounge was fairly comfortable. The staff was very nice, however, our flight was delayed 5 times! We were supposed to leave at 3:30 but we didn't leave until 7:00. Crew on the plane was super friendly and I think the pilot was great too. Skilled and always kept us informed of what was about to happen. Was only just over a 2 hour flight so no real food was needed nor was there entertainment. The 'in flight' menu was reasonably priced. Staff on the other end was helpful as well."
Cons: "Small plane, seats and aisles. But hey, you get what you pay for."
Cons: "The flight ran out of all sandwichsd and croissants before we were served. I think that was poor planning. The rest was all not healthy food, so we had nothing to eat!! Norma Sukornyk"
Pros: "They were quick and efficient gwttong everyone ready for a on time depature and we actually arrived a bit early too."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The long delay, 2 kids crying continuous, no place to smoke, no one explained to me that I had to pick up my luggage in Toronto! So now my suitcase is delayed! I was told that it would go straight through to destination. I will never use Delta again! And I will not fly through Detroit or Toronto again!!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, food wasn't to bad either"
Cons: "The amount of juice or drink you get could be a bit more"
Pros: "Comfortable newish aircraft. No entertainement, but it is ok for a short flight; same with food."
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage, I received it about 36 hours later. Most important: they never called me for updates (contrary to their own information sheet). I had to call several times; their online follow-up is badly set up, too."
Pros: "I was upgraded for free, and everyone was incredibly nice and great at their jobs!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent, very professional, friendly, and helpful. The flight itself was smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Took 30 minutes from push-back to runway in TO. Cabin was unpleasantly hot."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1.5 hours because incoming plane did not arrive. Finally took off 2.5 hours late. Just in time to arrive in Charlottetown to a severe thunderstorm. Circled til low on fuel then flew to Moncton. Refuelled and flew back to Charlottetown, arriving at 3 a.m., four hours late. The weather delay was understandable but WestJet's poor scheduling created the problem. Worst of all, the airline never told anyone what was going on, not the passengers nor the people waiting for them at the airport. Total silence. Unbelievable but typical for airlines."
Pros: "It was fast, friendly and over all made me impressed."
Pros: "Smooth, cost effective and friendly staff."
Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed other then that was great"
Pros: "The crew was OK, just a bit too patronising and hyper"
Cons: "Seats were damn uncomfortable and tight. The attendant making the announcements spoke soon fast, you had to wonder if she is running a marathon....I could hardly hear her full sentences. One of the serving attendant was a tad patronising and slightly annoying. Like no one wants to listen to "innuendos" at that time of the night."
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Cons: "4 hour flight at dinner time. No food. What were they thinking? They ran out of sandwiches after the first row of passengers. Why even bother with menus when there is no food to support?"
Pros: "Staff were super friendly and welcoming"
Pros: "Everything was good, haven't used westjet in a long time as I live in the states now. Will use them as often as I can."
Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"
Cons: "We were delayed ... was supposed to take off at 7:30 didn't take off until 9 .. I've sat on this plane longer than I was in the air"
Pros: "Quickest flight ever."
Pros: "Held up at YYZ for "lightning" beyond West Jet control."
Pros: "Flight left on time and staff were polite"
Cons: "PA system could be better"
Pros: "The crew and staff as a whole were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing to be honest was a great experience"
Pros: "It was a last minute trip, but I was able to bookwhat I needed fairly easy. I was given a lot of options as far as time and price."
Cons: "Sometime a lot of options can be a little stressful and/or overwhelming, but kind of expected with this type of booking site."
Pros: "Darim made my flight much more enjoyable and comfortable. Great flight attendant."
Cons: "I paid extra to select my seat earlier but my headset slot was not working and more than half the channels were not working anyways."
Pros: "Constant thanks from crew for the passenger patience with delays due to flight crew, and then weather delays - 2 hrs total Liked the captain came out to speak, clearly I might add, to explain the weather delays and provide updates..."
Cons: "Can't complain about what was beyond my control, but flight crew needing to come from another flight and then the other side of the airport to set up, resulting in hour delay - seems like alternative should have been available or system needs a process review to improve efficiency"
Pros: "The gate and air crew were very friendly. Flight right on time."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Everything was good Quick easy boarding Friendly air crew Love Westjet!!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "No on board entertainment. iPads did not work"
Pros: "Arrived safely."
Cons: "Bumped from business to coach and given a lousy $300 voucher."
Pros: "787 seats have better legroom & recliner"
Cons: "Vegetarian food needs lot of improvement"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "When checking in, it indicated a smaller plane. I was not in a window seat and I had to check my baggage (and wait at the baggage terminal)."
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "The flight crew was fine considering it was 2 in the morning."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 times; from 10:40pm to 12:55am to 1:25am because “the copilot was late on his flight from Chicago.” When another American flight arrived around midnight and their copilot offered to step in (he had not exceeded his flying hours), he was refused by management. Exhausted passengers were extremely angry. Each time the flight was delayed, the gate agents waited until the “Boarding in...” status screen reached 0 before announcing the next delay. Not cool."
Pros: "AA flights are always a pleasure. Staff is cheerful despite the early hours I fly out of Philadelphia."
Cons: "There is a complete lack of airport personnel at 3:00am and the fire alarm went off and sounded for about half an hour or so."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "Ticket agents were horrible at FAY. Worst I've seen."
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"
Pros: "Pleased to get luggage with tight connections. Exceptional crew RSW- Charlotte. Good legroom in overseas flight . Please do on all flights"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work on trans Atlantic flight"
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."
Cons: "First plane's engine caught on fire."
Pros: "It was a short smooth ride, no delays and the crew was nice. The snack was fine."
Cons: "I wish they offered drinks more. Like a bottle of water along with something else to drink."
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"
Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Cons: "Very poor boarding. Crew late but did not start screening and checking passengers until late. Had to ride bus to plane and walk a short distance in the rain which was moderately heavy."
Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."
Pros: "Polite and professional:-)"
Pros: "The crew, as always"
Cons: "Being sectioned off from 1st class"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."
Pros: "The blanket and pillow, good selection of movies."
Cons: "Maybe the food quality could have been better"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the plane was small the plane was not comfortable"
Pros: "Well.....it was canceled so I had to go to charlotte after to London and at the end at Rome and every one of them had delay's"
Pros: "The comfort"
Cons: "The food i have a pretzel bag that someone throw in the floir step on it and the give it to me"
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Pros: "Nice boarding head schedule friendly service."
Cons: "Poor entertainment but other than that it was a great flight until we got to Charlotte the ✈it was thousands of feets to make touchdown went took off again a was scary moment for all the passengers."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Pros: "Arrived home safely"
Cons: "Arrived very early due to logistics and our flight was not leaving for 9 hrs and the AA Representative would only put us on a earlier flight if we paid a large fee, so we waited then the original flight was delayed 2 hours and we nearly missed our connection in another city, it all could have been avoided if a little flexability and care were involved to put us on a earlier flight"
Cons: "Zero flexibility"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming. I enjoy having more choices then just pretzels and peanuts for a snack."
Cons: "The boarding process seems like it is hectic and not very well planned. A lot of people still standing in line that are not actually boarding yet because they are not in the correct group. This made it hard to actually board and know where the line was. Once on the plane the seats just seemed very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff were efficient and helpful."
Cons: "I was told at 7;15 am that the flight was delayed until 11:30. Unfortunately, I was already at the airport as my original flight was at 9:00. Luckily, there was another flight that would get me to my final destination at the same time as what I booked."
Cons: "no leg room"
