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..."
Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
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.

Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "got there on time, no delays. very smooth"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were nice and informative, and everything was on time"
Pros: "On time/ early arrival!"
Cons: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."

Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
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."
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
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: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "Temperature was too cold"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
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: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
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."
Cons: "Porter declined re-booking the flight due to weather conditions and forced us to purchase new tickets. Reservations made through anything other than Porter are treated poorly, service can be declined due to overbooking."
Pros: "Efficient check in. Liked the shuttle bus service from subway to airport."
Cons: "As expected this is a commuter flight so very stripped down in terms of amenities. Tight plane seating and those overhead bins just barely accommodate the carry on."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and everything was on time."
Cons: "The ride was a bit rough at the end if the flight."
Pros: "The crew is lovely"
Cons: "Porters flights out of Toronto have been significantly delayed every time I’ve flown"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "All ok"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Fast and convenient"
Pros: "First time in 10 flights in 3 months flying with Porter in time - what a miracle!"
Pros: "Free bar nuts while delayed 10 hours"
Cons: "Kicked us out of the airport when connection cancelled, NEVER fly Porter!!!! The horror stories are true as could be"
Pros: "Once we got on the flight it was fine."
Cons: "Worst issues was official announcement that flight was cancelled and then no announcement that it was actually not cancelled. Many people went home or were standing in line waiting to rebook when the flight left. We just barely made it on because we overheard staff talking to another couple!! Not acceptable. They should have made announcements over the speakers and should have called passengers by name to come to check in. Porter had flooding problems that meant many people crowding into small space and it prevented passengers from food or drinks. They eventually handed out water. They should have provided vouchers or brought in other food and beverages."
Pros: "It was hassle free. Trace and arrival times were perfect. Thank you for caring."
Cons: "Got to Billy Bishop, only to find out flight is delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Convenient, easy boarding, snacks and free wine on leg from toronto to chicago"
Cons: "Major delays that were poorly handled."
Cons: "no TSA precheck"
Pros: "I liked the lounge"
Cons: "There were a lot of people and not enough outlets"
Pros: "Onboard crew was very nice"
Cons: "Crew didn't answer any of my questions, were snappy, and rude."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Would like a sandwich instead of nuts"
Cons: "Late flight"
Cons: "If Porter was a budget airline the dreadful customer service might be partially understood, but it's not. Somebody needs to put passenger considerations into operational planning for situations where travel plans are disrupted, especially when they are because of mechanical or airline problems."
Pros: "Quick and convenient boarding, terrific airport, generous terminal lounge for relaxing pre-flight."
Cons: "Louder than a usual commercial flight, probably due to being a turboprop aircraft."
Pros: "There were mechanical delays, so Porter gave an $8 voucher to spend in the airport, which was a nice touch since I had never received that from other airlines who also had mechanical delays."
Pros: "Porter Airlines is the best I've been on within North America. Delighted that my 2nd flight was still Porter."
Pros: "Breakfast, bars, etcnithin"
Pros: "Lounge with free drinks (soda, coffee, water) and cookies/snacks! Glass drinks glasses on the plane! And leg room!"
Cons: "I fly weekly for work, but last week I got to fly to Toronto for pleasure to see my fiancé. In all of my years of traveling, I have missed a flight maybe 5 times due to traffic, weather, or other uncontrollable factors. It happened to be that on my way to Chicago Midway, there was an accident on the road that stopped traffic dead for 40 minutes. When I arrived at the airport, I begged for people to help me out by letting me cut security lines so that I wouldn't be late, but alas...others were also rushed and the TSA agents weren't too helpful. I arrived at the gate for my flight about 3 minutes late in defeat. Oh well - it happens! What was really unpleasant was that nobody would help me out. I was charged $150 to "change" my flight instead of just getting rebooked on the next one the way any other airline would happily do. And to top it all off, I was given the runaround with 3 different Porter employees diffusing responsibility. I will be moving to Toronto after the wedding but will still work out of Chicago - which means that I could provide business to Porter Airlines for the next few decades! Because of this poor service, you have lost my business. I would rather fly with another airline where customer service is a priority. Losing years of a customer's weekly business over a $150 fee seems to me to be a rather poor business model and I am sorry that the bureaucratic rules in this case could not be bent."
Cons: "The fee for my bag was too high!"
Pros: "Not sure if this is Porter Airlines or the airport, but the lounge at Billy Bishop Airport is fantastic. Free water, coffee, and snacks - it is so home-y in there, which is amazing when you are away from home :)"
Cons: "There were many delays on flights took that were not communicated to me until I had boarded."
Pros: "Departing from Billy Bishop is amazing. Incredibly quick and convenient. Complimentary nacks and drinks in the gate area?!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the hospitality experienced. It stood out to me and I fly 3x/ month. In addition, I liked the lounge area was comfortable."
Cons: "It was crowded in Lounge area, so it was difficult to hear updates on flights/ gates."
Pros: "Porter lounge in Toronto"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The flight deleyed"
Cons: "Though they have a lounge it was not in good shape. Trash cans overflowing, seat cushions filthy. I appreciate that they provide food for economy passengers in the lounge but, if you provide good in plastic containers you need someone to empty the trash-at the least."
Pros: "There was an issue with the plane and once we got off the plane there was only an hour wait for an new plane."
Cons: "When we were about to take off we pulled to the side and sat there for 20 - 30 min before they told us there was an issue with the plane. Then we had to wait another 20 min before we got back to the terminal."
Pros: "Service. Location of both Toronto Island and Chicago Midway are closer to downtown than the bigger airports in each city."
Cons: "Porter was a nice, small, well-kept secret. Now they have expanded quite a bit and the lounge is always full, to the extent that people are sitting all over the ground. Flights are almost always late to take-off. I guess all good things must come to an end."
Pros: "Excellent. Polite service, free (and tasty) food + beverages, (dry and otherwise) comfortable seats, other customers polite, bilingual announcements, fast + efficient. Really impressed! Good price too."
Cons: "Nothing, really! No in-flight entertainment besides a magazine, but all short flights anyway."
Pros: "I took Porter many times in the past. Many delays, never major, and I found landing at city airport were convenient enough to Override the annoyance of the delays."
Cons: "This time my flight was cancelled. For no particular reasons (not due to weather). That was the only flight that was cancelled of the whole day. All other were flying. They did not say why. My guess is not enough passenger on the flight to make it worth it to fly for them. They rebooked me 24 hours later. I called customer service to ask for support and I received no support at all. I explained I was having a high risk pregnancy and was out of medication and needed to be at my DR appointment I had the next morning in Chicago. They said that there's nothing they can do. They also said additionally we also want to mention that we do not support for accomadation cost. I did not even ask but it's like they wanted to highlight that no support is given. I asked to speak to a supervisor. Told him I would like support to rebook a non Porter flight to get on time to Chicago. Again he said I am sorry we don't do that. I mentioned I was shocked that they don't even care that I was saying it was a medical reason and I asked for his name saying I will hold Porter responsible if any difficulty would happen because of this. At that point they searched for a solution. He said ok you can be on a flight but you need to board in 30 minutes. Impossible for me to do where I was but this should have been proposed to me earlier so I could have made it. And I would have done it. Second solution he gave me was to be in Ottawa boarding in 1 hour. Again impossible I was in Montreal with no car. He said you cannot hold me responsible if anything happen with your pregnancy I offered you solutions. Thank you Porter all impossible to do at the time you offered them. If you offered them all to me on time that would have maybe be possible. Anyway they made me miss 2 days of work + my doctor appointment I had to go without medication for a few days + paid for a extra hotel room. Next time I am taking air canada delta or United . I will pay more but at least I will have the guarantee to be taken in charge by their customer service if delays or cancellations happen."
Pros: "Passenger i sat next to who was also dissatisfied with Porter"
Cons: "Again, how is it possible that the board of Porter departures is about 10 flights and all ten are delayed constantly. I have never flown Porter without being delayed. Need to compensate travelers better for hours of their life they will never get back, and a 37 dollar baggage fee is absurd, not to mention a limitation of 9 kilos on a carry on."
Cons: "As our first plane was in late, we were worried to loose this plane. But they waited for us. We arrived on time for this one."
Cons: "We have been stuck in Toronto not knowing exactly when we could depart. We were starving over there because there is no proper food. We end up paying 50$ dollars for some bad food."
Pros: "They offered vegetable chips which were super yummy and different!"
Cons: "Had a delayed for almost an hour."
Pros: "From start to finish all perfect Thanks"
Pros: "The Toronto waiting lounge is incredible!"
Pros: "Apart from the boarding process the trip was great."
Cons: "The airport had us board at a gate where we had to go outside in the rain without any warning. Many of the pasengers were families with small children and dressed for the sunshine and no coats or other protection from the elements. There was no warning from WestJet or the airport in the process from booking to checkin."
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Cons: "Comfort and food was lacking"
Pros: "more food choices"
Cons: "There's more snack."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "People get shocked from the rush of air soon after they board and close their air knobs overhead. The cabin was filled with lots of new bodies that had different ordour and perfume that it was good to have a strong ventilation but due to the strong air flow... Perhaps tell ppl to keep it open."
Cons: "Wake people up when serving anything.. I have seen in some other airlines that one is provided with a sticker to place on your seat to show if you can or cannot be woken up"
Cons: "The baggage restriction was not good at least one Checking should be allowed"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to choose a seat"
Pros: "Premium seats were an amazing touch"
Cons: "Like all airlines it would be nice if there was an extra inch between the seats. Also, unfortunately the video wasn't working."
Cons: "The quality of the video streaming was really low. It was disappointing."
Cons: "Did not serve food."
Pros: "Casual attitude."
Cons: "better food option than a few dusty pretzels and a thimble of water."
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Gavin at check in was so great!! Amazing and professional!! Great clear concise announcements!"
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "I wish there were more food options"
Pros: "price efficiency"
Cons: "gate change last minute"
Pros: "Easy boarding and checkin"
Cons: "Westjet seating is tight"
Cons: "Way too cramped. Only 1 washroom."
Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "No one would get a wheelchair to get to cart that was on different floor. Driver didn't volunteer to carry bags to cart."
Cons: "Booked our seats 24 hours in advance and could not get seats together. Airline expects us to pay extra for reasonable expectations as that"
Pros: "Talia is an excellent stewardess—She takes good care of people"
Pros: "Haven't taken it yet"
Cons: "Well I'm not on the plane yet cause you left.me stuck in Vancouver"
Pros: "Really a pretty good trip in my opinion."
Cons: "Not too thrilled with the fact that only a couple of drinks and light snacks are free."
Cons: "Woman in seat beside should have taken 2 seats"
Pros: "New plane was nice."
Cons: "Snacks offered"
Pros: "I felt like the price was reasonable."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs and again the head rests didn't work. I also feel like the chairs don't recline as much as they use to. The good vibe and hospitality of Westjet was gone."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
Pros: "Staff and aervice was great! No complaint!"
Cons: "We had to put our carry on bags a little far away from our seats"
Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Pros: "Not cold, not noisy aircraft"
Pros: "Landed 10 minutes early. Good landing in tough conditions"
Cons: "To the best of my knowledge I paid for a window seat on my trip to Montreal. It was the only option I elected to pay for, yet, I found myself in the middle seat. A personal life lesson we’ll learned and an experience to be remembered & considered, under advisement, on any future bookings."
Pros: "The people that work for WestJet are exceptional! I find everyone there is knowledge, helpful and happy. The last one is why I fly with WestJet. Its a real treat to be so well taken care of."
Pros: "I upgraded and that was definitely worth it."
Cons: "I don't like 2.5 hour flights in general. Just long enough to be annoying. But that has nothing to do with you and your airline."
Cons: "Not one complaint"
Pros: "Finally sleeping in my bed in Montreal"
Cons: "Cramped seats , no elbow room , could not sleep , very difficult to sleep - muscle pain in shoulders lead to nerve impingement and numb arms . If westjet cared about their reviews they would offer an upgrade on my return to make a fair judgement again their product line"
Pros: "The Pilot explained his Procedures thoroughly."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Being late into LA"
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it."
Pros: "Smooth, friendly and cost effective."
Cons: "No entertain system"
Cons: "West Jet personnel did not give any information about the customs process for connecting flights that I would face in Vancouver or the requirement to go through another security check between West Jet flights. I was told that I should simply go to the next gate to board the plane for Los Angeles -- and that I would do customs in the USA - so the info person sent me to retrieve my luggage (wrong info) and I ended with a 45 minutes anxious trek through the Vancouver airport! Once I found my gate, the West Jet personnel could not have been more kind."
Cons: "It was a little warm and stuffy while loading."
Pros: "Nice Staff. Easy process."
Pros: "Drinks and snacks several times! Lots of movies!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to first class because the flight was not full. So that was truly a blessing! And the service was great!"
Cons: "Not force checking luggage. Not loosing tsa pre details between different parts of ticket. Allowing checking to both legs online, not just the first."
Pros: "Food was extremely good for economy & professional & experienced cabin crew."
Cons: "747 showing its age!"
Cons: "Great experience"
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour in London and then immigration and customs in Chicago were awful"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Pros: "Onboard staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Allow more room for taller passenger without extra cost"
Pros: "Not being squeezed into a claustrophobic window seat."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Loved the 787. One flight attendant was just great. She made the difference on the flight! Didn't get her name but the trip was made better by her. Thank you!"
Pros: "I loved the seats that I got for the flight."
Cons: "The food was average."
Pros: "Once again BA 297 was more than an hour late departing because BA could not get bags and cargo loaded."
Cons: "See above. If BA cant get A380 loaded for on time departure, get more baggage handlers or use a different aircraft."
Cons: "Because of inability to load baggage at LHR we were over an hour late departing. Upon landing in ORD the CSM noted that many bags did not make flight. This is very poor service."
Pros: "I liked that the flight crew was super nice and helpful"
Cons: "It was a bit crammed"
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Pros: "We left an hour late but were only 7 min late upon arrival."
Cons: "I have a major problem with the fact that we passengers boarded the plane on time, expecting to depart on schedule, only to be forced to sit in our seats for nearly 90 minutes prior to actually taking off. While I appreciate that the pilots can make up for most of that lost time, it doesn’t make up for the fact that I’ve had to SIT captive for extra time on top of the what is already a long flight."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Mechanical problem delayed flight by an hour. Pilot and staff were helpful with updates. Kayak continue to have best prices that I can find."
Cons: "In economy, meal out was a dried out pasta (or chicken) and arrival meal was a choice of candy bar or cookies! Eat before boarding or bring your own. The plane is well maintained and clean but just very old. Seems the in-flight entertainment is no longer updated monthly. If you fly a lot of long haul, this can be disappointing."
Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"
Cons: "British Airways would not let me board the original flight (even though I would only be in Istanbul to change planes), because I did not have a Turkish Visa. I may have lost my ticket payment as well."
Cons: "We did not know it was Finnair until we got to the airport and could not find Brittish Airlines flight. This is on Kayak because none of your information indicated anything except a British Air flight. We asked several people and finally figured it out only they changed the gate at that point and we almost missed the flight after sitting in the airport for three hours"
Pros: "It was awesome how the windows are tinted and you can sometimes control it, and the new TV things on the back of every seat are truly amazing!"
Cons: "WHY is there no dairy free food?! I'm vegan but even for lactose intolerant people with more normal diets - there were absolutely no options! "meatballs and rice or pasta with a cheese sauce" - come ON! It's not that hard to make a vegetarian option that also happens to be dairy free!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "My monitor didn’t work and I asked about it twice. Two crew members said they would look into it but it never got reset."
Pros: "The crew had to deal with a medical emergency and they were excellent!! Despite extra pressure they kept us all informed and were polite and friendly under pressure!"
Cons: "lack of seat space and could not put seat back because of medical emergency so hard to sleep. Exhausted on arrival at Heathrow! Headset did not work properly on films Did not like the boarding process !!"
Cons: "Transfering at Heathrow is a stroke-inducing experience. Just getting from one terminal to another takes close to an hour. Add to that sadistic, bossy security personnel, incomprehensible flight announcements (in England!!) and trademark British incompetence -- Brexit can't come soon enough!"
Pros: "Crew was great, despite issues with our Tv issue, the challenging woman behind me."
Cons: "The TVs in our row went dead 2.5 hrs into the flight. I have a 2.5 year Old traveling with me, this was a challenge to maintain sanity for another 7 hours. Additionally the lunatic behind me didn’t know how to get out of her seat or eat or let her neighbor out when my seat was reclined. She also got up out of he seat during taxi causing the flight attendants to get up to address her."
Pros: "The staff helped me board and get better seating."
Cons: "There was only one meal through out. A few snacks here and there."
Cons: "I missed this connection and was routed through Dallas instead. I also missed that connection to El Paso."
Cons: "Should have more room on international overseas flights"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "The entertainment system & the food."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight and there was no lunch before arrival..."
Cons: "My baggage was lost. This is ridiculous."
Cons: "Space for legs"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Ruse at check in"
Pros: "Flying on the 380 very smooth"
Cons: "Gate was not available at arrival"

Pros: "staff were good"
Cons: "out of date entertainment food"
Cons: "did not have vegetarian food display of journey on 3d map a very very poor one - poor screen control, graphics , speed"
Pros: "Staff all very pleasant."
Cons: "Forced to check carry-on bag at the gate at which point they apparently gave me a baggage claim ticket with someone else's name on it. Because of all the uncertainty when they decided to do this, it was not caught until the bags did not show up at my final destination. They were however very pleasant while incorrectly marking our bags."
Pros: "On time. Very friendly, helpful staff. Decent food"
Cons: "They lost all of our luggage from our group traveling together. 8 bags didn't make it. Very frustrating."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nice high tech tvs to watch movies and tv shows"
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The movie selection was really bad and not updated. They lost my luggage, but not only me, 10 more people luggage. And when we went to reclaim they didn't even have papers for all of us. Really unorganized"
Pros: "That we did not fly British Airways."
Cons: "Very slow operations at the Heathrow airport."
Pros: "the food, the staff, the access to movies, etc"
Cons: "the fact that we had to wait at the gate for over an hour after we landed"
Pros: "Same as before. But I flew with Iberia."
Pros: "The boarding we good. Ontime."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac waiting for a gate for an hour. Food was not great."
Pros: "Everything was on time considering the heavy Holidays travels."
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Pros: "Fast boarding, flight relatively smooth, got to my destination pretty quickly as well."
Cons: "Typical tight seating, aircraft showing age."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."

Pros: "It is good"
Pros: "I was really excited about the timely correct schedule of the flights with British Airways."
Cons: "The long distances for running from one gate to the other. I know this is for elderly people like me, and the children as well, typically a little bit hard, but a small appropriate [air]shuttle same how is a thing, on which the advanced technology has to think. (?)"
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"
Cons: "No tv on seat. Those dumb comedy tv show"
Pros: "How spacious it felt and there were film selections"
Cons: "My film kept stopping randomly."
Cons: "The boarding experience is awful. I wish that there was more order to the boarding process such as with Southwest Airlines. There is simply no control over rude passengers who push there way to the front."
Pros: "at least flights were on time. 20 minutes delay is not bad."
Cons: "The customer service and the lack of assistance from the airline ground staff was horrible ."
Cons: "Cramped, claustrophobic space. Cabin too warm."
Pros: "It was very inexpensive and on time. And it was much more comfortable than those budget airlines like Spirit, Frontier, etc."

Pros: "It was fine. I was comfortable and I slept throat most of it."
Pros: "Not much"
