Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Proper communication"

Pros: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"
Cons: "I really wonder about the boarding procedure... isn't "back to front" more efficient? What is this Comfort +, Main Cabin 1, Main Cabin 2, Basic thing? Is that supposed to make you feel better because you paid for a seat selection?!"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."

Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."

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: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were nice and informative, and everything was on time"

Pros: "By"
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"

Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."

Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"

Pros: "Nothing."
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: "A bit warm on the plane and late taking off."

Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."

Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"

Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."

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."

Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."

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."

Cons: "4 hour layover in ATL too long"

Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"

Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"

Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"

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: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"

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"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Bad"

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."

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: "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."

Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"

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: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"

Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."

Cons: "Food quality"

Pros: "No amazing crew, just average. The should airline should have follow through on a specific request, but the airline's computer wipes out such things."
Cons: "Airlines should listen to the requests of the passengers."

Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."

Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."

Cons: "The drink service came a little late in the flight... but that is a suggestion more than a complaint."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "snacks"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."

Pros: "Crew on and off plans were helpful and nice."
Cons: "Delayed for hours for a short one hour flight with multiple gate switches."

Cons: "Bathroom needs fixing as toilets were not working. Planes kept getting cancelled. I never have problems with southwest"

Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."

Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "the small jets are so uncomfortable."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"

Cons: "KTerrible coffee. Tasted stale"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."

Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"

Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"

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."

Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."

Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."

Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old equipment"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."

Pros: "good price and a good route"
Cons: "This turned out to be a 'code share' flight operated by American Airlines. As such, neither Qantas nor American Airlines would allow me to buy premium seats so we could have extra leg room. They said the 'code share' blocks seat sales! Be ware Also found out that American Airlines does not serve meals on flights from Toronto to LAX. I was told they only serve meals on "international flights" but that I could buy a sandwich or snack. Unfortunately they only had 4 sandwiches on board , which sold within the first 2 rows of the plane!"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."

Pros: "Good assortment of entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed so long we missed our connecting fligh. Then we’re left with no hotel room as everything was booked in Miami for the holiday weekend. It was a mess"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"

Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."

Cons: "Staff seemed tired with some minor conflicts between them at Toronto gate"

Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."

Pros: "At least the gate agent was pleasant when she told us she couldn't help us and gave us information to get rebooked."
Cons: "That our bags were late coming off the plane and instead of being able to put them on the connection belt we had to take them up to recheck and rwtag them."

Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"

Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."

Pros: "I liked having a window seat."
Cons: "My screen was broken, so for 6 1/2 hours, I was unable to watch any movies and didn't see the safety video either."

Pros: "Crew was apologetic."
Cons: "PHL ground stop no known reason. Good weather. Even pilot was at a loss. 4 hours total delay, 3 of which spent in tarmac."

Cons: "The fact the flight was delayed for 5 hours due to weather."

Pros: "The check in process with the kiosks. It was very easy."
Cons: "They ran out of sandwiches that we had to pay for. We didn't have to do that on the Aer Lingus flight, which was for the same amount of time. In the other flight we had choice in entetainment."

Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."

Cons: "Poor snack options"

Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"

Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the flight was fast and easy."
Cons: "New seats are very cramped."

Pros: "Comfortable and clean flight"

Pros: "Meals, comfort, polite staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Although we "upgraded" to a front row with supposedly extra legroom, the dividing panel in front was closer than a row of seating would be and there was no room to stretch legs. Painful!"

Pros: "Early flight was not as crowded"
Cons: "But was very busy just the same. Weather was poor"

Cons: "Again very disappointed. No food, no flight monitoring and no tv access. Felt very "cheep". Cop o see idea far far better."

Cons: "Plane delayed 1 hour and a half. No compensation."

Pros: "One of the flight attendants (potentially a French Canadian or maybe just plain French) was amongst the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life. She was a little mean, but I'm willing to let it slide. In fact, I'm willing to let a lot of the negative things about the flight slide because of her (sorry, got to give credit where credit is due)."
Cons: "Got diarrhea from the waffles. The seats did not recline. No entertainment, but hey, this flight was damn cheap so I'm not complaining! Also, see positives."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "The flight was good and the crew excellent."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for an hour waiting for a hanger and couldn't get up as we were on the runway."

Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"

Cons: "It was hard to sleep I wish the chairs were more comfortable"

Pros: "Direct"
Cons: "9:30 flight finally took odd at 11:30 .... delayed and had to set on the runway. Arrivedabd gad to wait 30 min for gate. Will be in terms mal by 1:30"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Plane was cramp, no inflight refreshments offered other than beverage. No entertainment available on flight."

Pros: "It was a non stop. We left on time, arrived on time. The cheese snack purchase was good. The crew was polite."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, but it was not a long flight."

Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."

Cons: "Limited luggage spaceli"

Pros: "the crew was very kind with getting those with close connecting flights off first."
Cons: "it was an hour late."

Pros: "Brand new aircraft"
Cons: "Not gourmet not even fast food. A lot of area for improvement."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and tried to be helpful."
Cons: "We had booked 3 tickets on line, through Travelocity to, fly on June 2, from Nashville and Raleigh via Toronto to Berlin. We assumed our tickets were for Air Canada. It was never stated that we had booked tickets on ROUGE, their budget airline. We are avid and frequent travelers and after paying nearly $ 5.000.00 we feel ripped-off and deceived. It is particularly painful, since this trip was supposed to be special, for our 50th wedding anniversary. If Air Canada is represented by Travelocity it should at least insist that it is not misrepresented. Air Canada's reputation is worth the effort. A more appropriate name might be Air Canada Rogue. Helga Maneschi"

Pros: "When I spoke to one of the stewardesses about how this was the second time in a week that Air Canada failed to prepare a vegetarian meal for me, she listened to me and somehow pulled something together. All other employees were courteous, as well."
Cons: "On both my departure and return flight, Air Canada insisted I did not tell them ahead of time that I was a vegetarian. I am sure I did it for the departure, and I am absolutely certain I did it on the return. I contacted them because I didn't want to go hungry on another 10+ hour flight. I think, what happened was, another vegetarian who didn't order ahead requested a vegetarian meal and got mine. I was told I had to verify 48 hours before my flight. Why? Could I have become non-vegetarian in that amount of time? You should have to say it only once. I have never had this problem on any other airline, and it happened the only two times I've flown Air Canada. The light positions are terrible; my neighbors' light shown directly into my face the entire flight."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "I did not fly to Montreal and I did not catch flight to Barcelona I am fling again tonight Toronto - Barcelona direct"

Pros: "The staff and service were excellent!"

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth, staff was friendly and helpful, flight was safe and as comfortable as an overseas flight can be. I'll definitely consider Air Canada again and would recommend the airline to others considering it."

Pros: "Plane was the new Air Canada 787, so it was excellent. Comfortable business seats. Nice sleep"

Pros: "Boarding was quick. Crew were good."
Cons: "We left Rome over an hour late due to a computer problem that had to be reset. The pods in business class were the old style and not very comfortable for sleeping."

Pros: "The crew was lovely and made the trip easy."
Cons: "The boarding process was very strange. The "zone" loading makes no sense because I was at a window seat and other people had already sat down, so they had to get up so that I could go to my seat. Also the entertainment selection is very limited and poorly curated. I would recommend downloading Netflix shows on ur device before using their service."

Pros: "Rouge flights are not comfortable no room for your legs and on a four and half flight very uncomfortable. Soft drinks are free but not even a bag of nuts."

Pros: "Efficiency, comfort"

Pros: "Everything came on time. Staff was professional during a difficult situation"
Cons: "Air Canada seems to lack organization or any coordinated effort through out the organization. They have a fully booked flight and instead of making people with hard case luggage check them they crowd them in on the same flight where there are delays trying to get peoples luggage to fit into the bins. Also through the 4 Air Canada flights flight attends were constantly running down the aisle and hitting customers shoulders and not apologizing. it was also disruptive when people were trying to sleep (these were the 3 flights going to hawaii through calgary and vancouver and then back through vancouver. Probably will not fly with Air Canada again till corporate starts considering clients."

Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."

Pros: "Air canada needs a serious serious overhaul of the way they treat their customers especially those working at the Toronto airport I find their employees have an "entitlement" mentality that other carriers do not Customer service seems to be a priority not talking to your coworkers about the weekend while serving your customers"
Cons: "There was one employee who suggested to take an earlier flight and was very helpful Little things go along way"

Cons: "At least two hours delay departing three of four times, virtually no air on the Toronto-Nashville leg then had to sit on runway in a hot plane due to gate not being ready. The international boarding from Toronto to Paris was badly disorganized with two gate attendants and finally another two came over to help but stayed in phone most of the time. We were already delayed. Won't fly Air Canada again"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The delay, but that was not your fault."

Cons: "It was cancelled."

Pros: "Great selection of movies. Quiet plane noise."
Cons: "The light and entertainment system controls are in the arm rest and is very easy to accidentally turn lights on/off or turn the screen off for yourself or your neighbor. This is very annoying . The chicken/pasta dish was the worst I had in many years as an experienced traveler - my kids and I didn't bother after the first bite"

Pros: "Flight attendant's were friendly amid the circumstances."
Cons: "Our first flight was cancelled 15 minutes before scheduled take-off. upon being bumped to another flight two hours later, that flight was delayed two hours after an issue during take-off. We remained on the plane while mechanic/engineering staff rectified the problem. We booked a flight to save time on driving. We would have arrived earlier had we drove. I understand things happen, but the airline eneds to take responsibility and show some good customer service. Aside from the pilot, no apology given, no reimbursement offered. Disappinting. Air Canada is now a last-resort option for a frequent flyer like myself."

Pros: "film selections are up to date with previously released films"
Cons: "one of the staff attitude was demeaning unhelpful maybe just because I was asian"

Cons: "LGA Gate #6 and #7 to cold, people were freezing. Also, those two gates are like cattle barn."

Pros: "Seat had decent leg room, but had to pay an additional $60+ dollars for it."
Cons: "Paying for food on a flight that's over 5 hours is very poor form. Food was of very poor quality. Beverage service came around once early on and then not again until almost landing. Asked for another beverage about half way through the flight and it never came. Plane was dirty."

Cons: "I didn't like that there were no screens to watch and I didn't know I needed the app on my phone to watch movies until I was already in e plane and too late download it."

Pros: "The staff was kind and were willing to help. The air craft was for the most part clean and comfortable with leg space."
Cons: "The windows had some form of oil on it that wasn't cleaned, it was hard to wipe off with a napkin as well."

Cons: "2 and a half hour delay"

Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."

Pros: "Boarding and food was good"
Cons: "Entertainment options were out of date and"

Pros: "A clerk of ANA was awesome."
Cons: "The flight to Tokyo was changed at the airport because Air Canada had overbooked and the seats were fully checked-in. So I could not get on my booking flight and had to wait for them to arrange new flight from another air company, to check in it and board for more than 5 hours in the airport!"

Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "Seat size made sitting a suffering, as I am quite tall, and was unwilling to pay the extra $100 dollars, which I felt discriminatory (as I have no control over how tall I am)."

Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."

Cons: "I have nothing to say about the flight, was good enough."

Pros: "Uncomfortable seat. Super old aircraft. Wasn’t even given water"
Cons: "How about a sip of water atleast?"

Cons: "A delay of 28hrs is never positive. I haven’t been able to get my United points either since I was rerouted to SFO. When claiming them the system says that I never boarded the flight to EWR and completely ignore the YYZ - SFO flight. Mediocre overall."

Cons: "At the time at the gate did not allowed me even take my caryon bag with me, the staff was so rude an in an uncivilized manner start fighting with me ,I am a sinor person got very disrespected by your staff, I would like to bring a lawsuit against UA for what you did to me ,I wish an invitator from your office contantact me to explain everything,"

Pros: "Quick and easy flight, on and off the plane quickly."
Cons: "Small, cramped plane."

Cons: "Food was 100% carbohydrate. Not a trace of greens or protein. Our party was split up even though reservations were made long in advance. Codeshare on Air Canada"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew on this flight were really nice and helpful."

Cons: "They delayed my flight, so now I get back home really late. Thanks, United."

Pros: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"

Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding was easy."
Cons: "I wasn't informed when I booked that the flight was operated by Air Canda's budget variant, rouge, and not Air Canda as was listed on Kayak. I had no option to select seats, and when we boarded I was seated on the last row by the galley with no reclining seats and the florescent lights were on nearly the whole time on a 10 hour overnight flight. There are no seat back TVs and the free streaming service went down repeatedly just like the AC outlet at our seats (there are only two of these for three people). I booked this trip nearly a year in advance, and I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't informed that I was flying a budget airline on a 10 hour flight."

Pros: "I like that we landed."
Cons: "This box seems too small to fit it all in. It's United - underwhelmed as usual."

Pros: "united over book. i got boarding pass but no seat number. United charge me $400. I want me money back."

Cons: "Plane from Toronto to Denver could have been a bit bigger / nicer for that long a trip."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of preparedness before taking off from each stop."

Pros: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."

Cons: "They kept delaying this flight but not telling us. First it was delayed to 6:50; at 6:51 I asked whether it was further delayed and was told no, we were about to board. Five minutes later the screen said 7:15 (and later, 7:35); at no point was there any announcement about these further delays. They then stowed carry-on luggage below, so passengers lost access to any entertainment in their carry-on. There was no entertainment on board."

Pros: "Fantastic minus the fact this flight was canceled without any notification."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that my flight was cancelled until I tried to check in online a few hours before. Then I was booked on a terrible next day combination. I had to book with another carrier for $400. I missed out on time and money."

Cons: "3+ hour delay"

Cons: "No help from the flight attendants before we landed to inquire to see if the connecting flight would wait - just MINUTES!"

Pros: "Staff were helpful, the flight took off on time and the trip was smooth."
Cons: "No complaints on any front."

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised when they announced those with large carry ons could get tagged and pick up at final destination."
Cons: "The distance between arriving gates and departure."

Pros: "Nothinng"
Cons: "Didn't hold our seats! Made it with ten minutes to spare, but sold our tickets when they could of called and said three passengers are on their way over!!!! Instead made a little more money!!!!"

Pros: "Plenty of leg room in first class."
Cons: "Paid for upgrade to first class for smoother flight with more leg room. Flight attendant whose job is to server first class customers avoided me entire flight looking the other way whenever she was passing, making it impossible to ask for anything. I ended up asking different flight attendant for glass of water."

Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "We had to go to the special help counter to get our seat assignments changed so my wife and I could fly together. Then they attempted to charge us baggage fees because you didn't notify them that we used our United Explorer card. This also required me working with the gate agent to get priority boarding"

Pros: "Sitting in the flight on the Tarmac for over 2 hours is a terrible experience"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Flight, when it the air, was fine. But..."
Cons: "We arrived from Tampa about 8:00am to discover shortly later that flight 558 would be delayed to 9:30am. Then at 9:30 it was announced the plane is to be delayed to 10:30. Shortly after that announcement it was announced a gate change and further delay to 11:30. Then another delay to 12:20. finally departed."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Overall, the flight was OK. I would not write home and brag to my friends about it ..."
Cons: "There is good business between Toronto and Halifax; why must you use the smallest aircraft you can find? Use a larger aircraft and fly it fewer times per day."

Pros: "The"
Cons: "The flight is delayed four hours. When I booked the ticket, I booked with air canada, and I was assigned to a UA flight. And They didn't allow me to change to a ealier one coz my flight is with UA."

Pros: "Fast boarding, pleasant crew, nice leg room!"

Pros: "This was a nonstop flight with Air Canada, in cooperation with United Airlines"
Cons: "A small plane, crowded and full, for a non stop, international flight. Obviously, United prefers to use the larger, more comfortable planes for flights through their hub in Chicago- which is always a hot mess!"

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."

Pros: "The fact that you serve a small complimentary drink and snack on such a short flight was extremely appreciated. It seems most airlines either won't serve on a short flight or charge you extra. Also, I absolutely love the new seats on the planes you guys have been using for quite a while now. They're much more sleek/minimalist so they don't take up as much room. As a disabled person, the bulky seats still employed by many planes on other airlines are incredibly hard on me getting in and out of the seat isles. The crew was very efficient and kind. I also appreciate the thank you to military personnel that they announced at the end of the flight."
Cons: "My gate was moved a few minutes prior to scheduled boarding. It was a minor inconvenience. Flight was a bit late getting out, but still arrived at designated time. Complimentary Wifi would be pretty nice, but not expected."

Pros: "Great ticket counter staff!"
Cons: "Overbooking a flight by this much is obscene. When an aircraft goes down, everyone loses."

Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""

Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"

Pros: "Always the service is above and beyond"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Flight was late leaving toronto, missed connection to knoxville. Captain/crew never gave explanation. United just kept saying the captain needed more time before boarding. Got to Washington and had to wait 5minutes before the tram left for gate A. United should have known we had arrived and were on our way. I paid a premium to get home at 2:15. I could have paid a lot less to get home over 4 hours later. !$10 food voucher didn't make up for that. Also, we didn't even receive an apology!"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "That I was not allowed to move into empty seats further forward. And that I would have had to pay more for a seat closer to the front. Airlines say they serve the public but they do so only tintype who can afford it. Shame on you."

Pros: "To be not treated like CATTLE!!!!"
Cons: "NOTHING!!"

Pros: "I flew from OKC to Houston and then home to DSM. The price was terrific for a one way flight. I bought at 2:30 am for $130. I checked later the next morning and the price was $455! United Airlines is a great airline. There was a wonderful agent who helped me at the kiosk for check-in. Very friendly. The flight attendant on this flight was very personable."

Pros: "Great wheelchair service for my disability."

Cons: "The plane was delayed."

Cons: "First flight was delayed, missed next 2 connecting flights. Next flight home wasn't for 24 hours, so had to pay for my own hotel + another $200 for a rental car to drive 5 hours home. Made it home 1.5 days later. They lost my bag, bag made it home 3 days later. Overall, worst travel experience of my life."

Pros: "the fight left on time and had no issues."
Cons: "The size of the seats. The space between the seats. Would it kill United airlines to give up one row of seats and give people a little more leg room."
