Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was great. I experienced great hospitality."
Cons: "The quality of meal."
Pros: "Always excellent Japanese service."
Cons: "No entertainment system, only one channel for everyone in the middle of the airplane like in the 80's. No reclining seats, sit straight only, but decent leg room, unless you are taller than 6ft."
Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you 3 months ago I had to change. I won’t use kayak again."
Pros: "Meal, crew"
Cons: "1. inside temperature was so cold -especially at the 3rd route from la to tokyo -. 2. Economy seats are not declined, which means less pereonal space. 3. The worst is in-flight entertainment system, UI is so poorly developed, most contents do not provide english subtitles."
Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Pros: "I was surprise that even it was a short 2/3 hour ride there was still food being served. A very nice Japanese breakfast. - smaller plane, bus that picked us up and dropped us off in front of the airport. As we were doing a 12 hour layover, all our check in luggage was taken care of and sent to van"
Cons: "At our first checkin from Korea Ana, seems we have to look at a screen for our luggage just to double check that they made it past customs (never had to do that before) - check in was a bit longer compare to yvr their scanner was much smaller so definitely can’t have big carry on"
Pros: "More leg room than most flights."
Cons: "Baggage drop after on-line check-in very slow. Otherwise everything went very smoothly."
Pros: "The food and the crew were great."
Cons: "I am yet to find an airline that has any semblance of comfort in economy class for someone 6’ 2”, and that isn’t even tall! It would seem that the seats should be tall enough not to have the headrest push on my shoulders.....such as making it adjustable enough to be used as a headrest."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly service, good food, fairly spacious seat."
Pros: "Friendly staff, fast service, and good food."
Cons: "Seats are way too small, incredibly uncomfortable to the point of painful ness. More luggage space"
Pros: "More movies choices is better and I had asked to get seat comfortable, yes the boarding crew staff made it. Thank you."
Cons: "Movies and musics more variables from all over the world."
Pros: "The stewardesses were kind and courteous, attending to every need with a smile."
Cons: "Not vegan/vegetarian options for meals. Also if you are able to upgrade from economy seating, do so! Your legs will thank you for it. L"
Pros: "Nice 777 plane, good snack"
Pros: "The seat, service and food..all is great as always."
Cons: "It was too hot in the plane. The plane lacked individual cooling control. We mentioned how warm it was to the flight attendant. It did cool down momentarily, but remained uncomfortably hot the remainder of the flight."
Pros: "Prepackaged sandwiches were so so. Crew were friendly and helpful. Leg room was pretty good. Bathroom had a lot of amenities."
Cons: "The seats are kind of flat."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, the crew was very accommodating and it was very comfortable."
Pros: "Staff very friendlym Flight was on time."
Cons: "There is not entertainment at the plane even though is a international flight in a not low cost airline. The space between seat is quite small."
Cons: "The food was not as good as in my previous flights."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Two key issues: 1. Split up seating 2. Required to pick up and check baggage with limited time due to customs check. 1. They split up all four of our seats (despite booking more than 30 days in advance). Our seven (7) year old daughter was by her self. So was our fifteen (15) year old son. When we addressed it to baggage check (part of major issue number 2), they put two seats together, across an aisle, with both children in them. We obviously just sat one of the adults with the seven year old. This was not just us. SEVERAL families had children seated alone and spread all over the plane. ANA needs to require grouped seating for children under thirteen (13) years old with an adult. 2. Tokyo Haneda is the only airport I can think of where I have to pick up and check baggage again just to clear customs. The flights were 1 hour and 45 minutes apart. With nearly an hour dedicated to getting baggage claimed and getting through customs, we barely had time to fix two of our split seats (see issue 1) and rush via a free bus route that took 6 minutes (luckily we were first stop) to get us to domestic terminal 2. We were then lucky again because we made it through security quickly and our gate happened to be right next to the security check we chose. Another side piece: Haneda Domestic Terminal 2 has four security check areas (A-D). We saw no identifying marks indicating which were closest to which gate. Our bags have already been through a bag check process. Feel free to run them through security scans. Don’t make us wait to collect them just to walk them through the customs desk and check them again."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."
Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Pros: "Everyone is super nice."
Pros: "staff was great in business"
Cons: "The crew was very polite, the best that I have ever seen . I noticed this polite behavior in all Japanese service people in Japan too. Very gracious, It is in their culture. The only problem for me in such a long trip it was that the chairs couldn't move back for a more relaxed position, but overall it was very good ."
Pros: "service and comfort in Premium economy"
Cons: "ANA's food quality went down so much. Its basically as bad as united meals. Very sad."

Cons: "So far I don't have"
Pros: "Everything :)"
Pros: "Social distanced seating"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"
Cons: "The plane itself and seating was filthy, some unknown substance fell on me from the vent above, there was a bunch of crumbs in the seat buckle that fell out all over my lap when I fastened it. I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Food was decent. Entertainment was decent."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Delta check in was HORRIBLE! I was charged for a bag check in and had to take my bag through security and they threw away my cologne and razors."
Pros: "The movies were good on the plane."
Cons: "Everything! I was given a wheelchair, wheeled to a spot and told to stay there. I waited over an hour. I couldn’t get thru customs and security alone and I had to ask a non employee to help me the whole time, I was then yelled at by an employee because they didn’t think I was handicapped at the gate"
Pros: "My upgrade was fabulous!"
Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"
Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"
Pros: "Good service. Friendly staff. Jet bridge in NRT."
Cons: "Never got a boarding drink; No jet bridge in Shanghai."
Cons: "My flight was delayed over 3 hours and I have reached out to Delta and no one has called or emailed me back."
Cons: "Delayed so I was not home until middle of the night."
Cons: "missed flight bc of delay with first flight. jad to wait 5 hours at lax"
Cons: "Boarding was not smooth. They got me and my son mixed up as we have same name."
Pros: "i liked the aircraft and the fact that you could watch movies on your phone!"
Cons: "you couldn't hear the staff when they started boarding the plane"
Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"
Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."
Cons: "Legroom was poor, Im 6' tall and my knees were rubbing the seat in front. Flight was full so no alternate."
Pros: "Free movies helped the time fly by. Stewardess, or whatever the PC word us now, Britt was awesome"
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very polite helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Can't change the weather. Flight was delayed a bit but they were very informative as they found out info."
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "I love the crew! They are so kind and helpful. Feel like been friends forever. And they have the hardest jobs in the world! Seats are comfortable love the Westin bedding and drink selection"
Cons: "They ran out of Port wine :("
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "Free rebooking"
Pros: "We were delayed a bit out of Shanghai but still arrived in Los Angeles on-time (very slightly early) which was nice. well done."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing, with staff members holding signs creating arbitrary waiting areas for each of the boarding zones. If this is the boarding process, maybe something more structured can be implemented, otherwise people just end up everywhere. The seat back entertainment on this 777-200 suffered from the most capricious touch-screens ever. I would frequently tap a control on the screen only to have a control at the far corner of the screen be "pressed" instead. Annoying."
Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."
Cons: "No leg room, seats vastly too narrow"
Pros: "The landing experience."
Cons: "The organization of serving meals."
Cons: "Very long delay leaving Shanghai. Was 90 minutes late arriving in Tokyo, so I didn't have time to run into Narita town for some real food as I had been planning."
Cons: "The economy seating was very tight on this plane. I'm just 5'8", and it felt incredibly tight. I think I had 2" of leg room. I cannot imagine being much taller."
Pros: "The take off and landing was peaceful and on time"
Cons: "I didn’t like changing boarding gate three times. The crew member was poor overall including the one providing service I must say."
Pros: "Great crew, especially on a long-haul flight. Decent food, considering how many people they were serving. Best bathrooms I have ever experienced on a large plane."
Cons: "Legroom, legroom, legroom!! If we are to be treated as sardines, at least pack us in oil. It gets worse every time we fly. Crew agreed; the airlines need to be put on notice. It makes their job impossible."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Cons: "flight delays altered all my further plans"
Pros: "Great crew. I love Lufthansa. I just wish there was more room for my legs."
Cons: "More leg room!"
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was good! Boarding was fast and organized!"
Pros: "I loved that the staff made everyone comfortable and answered all questions. The captain was in constant communication with us. and especially that the ground service team managed to rebook us all the way home to Tucson the same day."
Cons: "That the flight was so late getting to Munich that we missed our flight from Rome to Houston and then to Tucson."
Cons: "Good was average to bad"
Cons: "It was weird that for dinner the meal was vegan as requested, but the breakfast was not and so couldn't eeat it. It was weird that one meal was correct and the other was so lacking."
Pros: "Very nice flight, the food was super delicious and the crew very professional"
Pros: "My previous flights with Lufthansa have been in business class, which is fabulous. However, on this occasion flew economy because I got an exceptionally cheap ticket. I was pleasantly surprised. Obviously the seat was narrower, but had plenty of legroom. The food in economy in Lufthansa is better than most airlines’ business class meals. The crew is very courteous and professional. You really can’t go wrong with this airline."
Cons: "There was no downside."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Food, movies"
Cons: "Long flight"
Pros: "Lucked out. Flight was quite empty. Travel was comfortable and easy. A smooth ride all along."
Pros: "The service. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Ended up flying out of London Heathrow, not Munich do to the cancelled Lufthansa flights. Very stressful and exhausting but did get back the same day as scheduled."
Pros: "Easy. Clean. Friendly."
Cons: "That we had to pay extra to reserve our seats."
Pros: "Right on time, smooth flight, crew at the gate and onboard were super. Food was fine and plane was clean."
Cons: "The only problem with comfort is when the person in Front of me reclined the seat. I could not see my screen well Or get in and out of my seat well and had to recline my own seat in order to do so."
Pros: "Staff mostly, but also plane, seat, food, boarding and communication."
Cons: "We left late due to weather — which is okay— but pilot didn’t catch up in the air. Also, the connection was tight partly because the Prague flight parked at the far end of the field and the bus ride took forever. Then we had so far to walk to get to the departure gate."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the service was excellent"
Pros: "Premium Economy is awesome! Bigger seats with more leg room than I need (I'm just over 6 feet tall), leg rest (oh yeah) and a travel kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks and travel sleep mask. The crew was very good-hospitable and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt is terrible!!! They open every other bag despite scanning with X-Rays!! Took me 50 minutes to get through security and to my next gate."
Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."
Cons: "We called customer service to change our seats to an aisle seat on both of our flights due to a knee injury and the representative changed them for us after trying to make excuses that she couldn't. When we boarded we found out she gave us BOTH middle seats in the middle of the plane on both flights, she lied to us about them."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not as up to the standard of the meal travelling from Los Angeles to Frankfurt. It could be much improved in Business Class."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "First of all, the boarding took an hour longer than it should have been so we all sat in the plane dripping with sweat, because it was 100 degrees in Houston and the plane didn't have A/C on until we took off. Food was not good, some mysterious meat they called beef stew and veggies with strange texture. We ended up drinking more since the food was bad. The entertainment choices were OK but the equipment was a bit ancient, my husband's screen ( we sat in the front where screen pulled out of the seat) was broken and was held by a duct tape(???!!!) The seats are small, I have flown with other companies on transatlantic flights and their seats are bigger and more comfortable in economy class."
Pros: "The short flight from Naples to Munich on Lufthansa was comfortable and the seats were roomier with more leg room than on other airlines I've been on recently."
Cons: "Why I had to fly from Naples to Munich and then down to Zurich to take an Edelweiss flight (Swiss Air, horrible), is beyond me. Poor routing, plus, the Edelweiss flight took 10 hours to Tampa. My family flew from Naples to Paris and from Paris to St. Louis, Mo. in SIX hours. The four extra hours were excruciatingly long in cramped seats."
Pros: "Afterall I did get rice iso pasta."
Cons: "Cold. My chair was bumped because us was just a little bit broader in the gangway than the other chairs. (54c) There is no possebility fot ordering foid for me: diet is without grains at all and without sugar at all."
Cons: "Late flight with no explanation for the delay until after boarding left passengers in the dark and in some cases unable to communicate travel changes (when they could have used the airport wifi if notified in a timely manner)."
Cons: "I would have liked more snacks passed in between meals. Our flight was delayed byv3 hours and we were starving by the latter end of the flight."
Pros: "An extremely professional, attentive staff and flight crew"
Pros: "short hop--good"
Pros: "Crew were nice, helpful, and professional. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "There was a lot of noise during all the flight; people were talking loudly and kids were crying all the time. The online entertainment system was not practical at all and it does not replace a 10" physical screen in the seat."
Pros: "Premium economy seats, also premium economy is located very well in front of the plane."
Cons: "Food quality was aweful. Not sure why Lufthansa can't train the catering in Shanghai better. Worst vegetarian food ever."
Pros: "Lufthansa does travel in Europe very well. Boarding process was easy, overhead storage was great, Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Seats in business class are rather smallish, and the legroom is not great either. If you pay extra for business, you should get extra."
Cons: "Announcement system sound quality so poor we couldn't hear the onboard announcements. Our flight attendant was not very friendly and he continued to address us in German even after he was aware that we were English-speaking (he spoke perfect English so that was not the problem). He didn't offer brandy to anyone on our aisle after dinner, even though I heard the attendants on other aisles offering it."
Cons: "crowded plane unfrindly staff no choice of meals long wait on board"
Cons: "I got a wrong flight from you, different than the one initially selected, upon my payment !...with 6 hours overlay instead of 50 minutes. For that I had to pay extra $300 !"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Our flight from SFO to Frankfurt was cancelled and we were re-booked on a very bad itinerary."
Cons: "I will never fly Lufthansa again anywhere"
Cons: "leg space is too tight"
Pros: "The food was very good. The service, the preciseness."
Cons: "I didn't like the entertainment, there should me more options for movies in English and Arabic."
Pros: "I booked a ticket with Airfare.com using Kayak.com. The booking experience was easy, but the important note I want to make was during a large Colorado snowstorm where flights were being cancelled, I was able to proactively re-book my ticket with the help of Airfare.com customer service. Though it was complicated, I want to make sure Airfare.com gets credit for doing a good job."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
Cons: "I can't find anything bad about me experience with Lufthansa."
Cons: "The delay and the lack of movies. Seats are very small. I was sitting near a larger passenger and it was very tight. We had over two hours delay for mechanical problems with the plane."
Pros: "Airline is very helpful for connecting passenger. Delay occur when airport was too busy. Flight had to circle around for over 30 min. Transportation was ready to take passengers to their connecting flights. Much faster and organize way than some airline just let passengers running in terminals on foot."
Cons: "International travel is down to only 1 luggage allowed making passengers taking more and bigger carried on into the plane. Finding overhead space becomes a fight and delay boarding process. Lack of web-check-in drop off counter. Only 2 counters open for economy passengers on 2~3 flights."
Pros: "Good directions at airport"
Cons: "Booked too close Difficult for elderly person"
Cons: "Departure time kept changing."
Cons: "Its okay"
Cons: "They could at least announce boarding group 4..."
Pros: "We were given sandwiches and drinks when our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We boarded our flight and then told there are maintenance problems. Our flight was delayed 4 hours."
Cons: "Let me cancel the flight for credit"
Cons: "More beverages"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "Insuffecient supply of juices etc"
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."
Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"
Pros: "Experienced a 4.5 hr delay to the destination. Family had to pick up grandson (Ibooked trip for him) after midnight in L.A. 2 hour flight delay coming back which pick up had to be re-arranged again by family. Family member flew to us next day via United without any issues. Dont book through this site or use American Airlines!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The fact that we didn't know we were supposed to go to American Airlines to acquire our boarding pass. A heads up would've been appreciated."
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "1 hour delay turned into a 3 hour delay. We waited at the airport for more than 4 hours and could've used that time to explore Chicago instead of rushing to the airport only to board, de-plane, and then board again. No vegetarian options were given for food."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."
Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"
Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "While trying to get help with my boarding pass, the woman behind the counter was so rude and nasty. Yelled at me for being at her desk when another American employee took me there."
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Cons: "Board keeper rude to several guest who didn't want to check in their bag when there was plenty of room on the flight."
Pros: "Both power and USB plugs at each seat. Entertainment options not bad."
Cons: "Very narrow seats with little leg room. Reclined seat in front of you is right in your face."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Worst airline I have ever used. Continuously bad experiences."
Pros: "Other than the delay, it was your basic 1 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."
Pros: "Checkin was fast. Crew is always pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I chose to upgrade my seat and was charged but i couldnt see any difference between my seat and anyone elses. I dont understand how it works. Then I was refunded the upgrade amount..."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."
Cons: "the flight was 4 hours late. we were constantly shuffled to different gates. the internet on the flight didn't work."
Pros: "The crew, how we left promptly and didn't take ages boarding."
Cons: "The seats, the lack of food options."
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "Good customer service but to be expected"
Cons: "Horrible bin space Sitting arrangement southwest has better system including free baggage"
Pros: "Plane staff friendly, timely flight, uneventful overall."
Cons: "Gate-side crew forced us to check a carry-on bag when there was plenty of space in the plane bins. No in-flight entertainment, old plane."

Cons: "Was scheduled to leave at 3:15pm didn't leave until 4:17pm"
Pros: "Everything very nice peaple"
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time."
Cons: "We went to the gate early and it was printed on our boarding passes. We left to get some food and came back and tried to board. The gate agent was incredibly rude and sarcastic about telling us that the gate had been changed. They also tried to sell us 3 upgrades when we were trying to get our boarding passes."
Cons: "N/A had to change my flight. :("
Cons: "The flight was fine but there was a 45 minute delay at baggage claim."
Pros: "The flight didn't exceed 15 minutes to take off. Most AA flights I have taken in the past were delayed were 3+ hours. Boarding was completed efficiently and the entertainment, even though was on a common screen, was okay rather showing nothing."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional, yelling across the plane because they couldn't figure out the seating arrangements for a family. It seems there was an error on AA's part of overbooking. They also forgot to my husband's beverage and never looked back. It would also be nice to have individual screens with the ability to freely watch entertainment provided."
Cons: "I flew from DC to Austin, through Chicago. Flight was late leaving DC, was late leaving Chicago (mad had a gate change that wasn't announced), and when we go to Austin had to sit in the runway for 20 minutes due to someone else at the gate. I don't know if this was all AA's fault, or just bad luck."
Cons: "it took a very long time for take off, and de freezing. That should have been done prior because it made our flight very late arriving in toronto"
Pros: "The crew was very good and very attentive!"
Cons: "The boarding process.... we had to change gates kind of last minute and from there on it was a bit chaotic ... we boarded via buses and then had to climb stairs to enter our airplane."
Pros: "Crew attentive"
Cons: "Check in REALLY slow. Seat space unacceptably too small. Couldn’t hear entertainment sound over engine noise with earphones so could not use entertainment. Need better earphones. Chair wouldn’t recline."
Pros: "Good service good flight fair food and nice seat."
Cons: "Biggest issue the start very lax re security, 2 people never wore their seatbelts at any time, take off and landing. They hardly checked anything."
Pros: "Very convenient, good schedules, pretty much on time."
Pros: "Entertainment System, Crew"
Cons: "Washroom faucet didn't work so no one could wash their hands."
Pros: "Entertainment. GoGo did not want to work for me at 1 he before arrival."
Cons: "Give me a coupon for food before takeoff or on arrival. Skip the CupofNoodles. After Japan and Shanghai, cup of noodles seem really in bad taste."
Pros: "Air Canadas flights were on time and run very well. Wasn't impressed with the food choices but felt that what was provided was of good quality."
Cons: "My girlfriend has a nut allergy and we asked if a particular bread contained nuts and flight attendant basically said they don't know what's in the food. I don't think that's acceptable."
Pros: "They do not have an office or ticket desk in Pudong airport which made early arrival into this airport difficult. No one answered the phone at the Very little English is spoken here"
Pros: "Gast boarding."
Cons: "Charging for bags twice and then allowing people to have frwe bags cause of ovER flow. I was charged twice 21 us and 26cdn."
Pros: "AC 018 takes the shortest route from Shanghai to Montreal. The check in and boarding were like a breeze. Cabin was clean, staff were amiable and hard working. The variety of drinks were plenty, the food matched the standard of cost efficiency flight ticket so how could you complain it? On board TV/Movie has new coming features such as HBO's Game of The Thorne, season 7. It was a comfortable and pleasant journey with the team of AC 018. Merci beaucoup!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "Getting off the plane!!!"
Pros: "A lot of leg room."
Cons: "Air Canada flights are always delayed. The crew is rude and usually not helpful when asking for something. In addition, when I bought the ticket I was asked if I spoke English because I was sitting in the exit row; however, the couple sitting next to me obviously did not speak and they let them stay there anyways."
Pros: "Flight was good, decent food and drink"
Cons: "the delay caused ua to miss connection and had to be rebooked"
Pros: "Air Canada's crew is very professionnal."
Cons: "Avions neuf et confortable (787). Plusieurs membres de personnel de cabine sont des membres sindiqués en fin de carrière. Oublie des services affable! Le strict minimum est offert par de vielle dames pas heureuses de leurs travail."
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Pros: "The crew were terrific, business class splendid, information readily available but not incessant."
Cons: "We left 90 minutes late: 30 minutes because Air Canada arrived in Shanghai late, then another hour because we'd missed our window. As a result, I missed my connection and had to spend the night in an airport hotel in Montreal (which Air Canada paid for). These things happen, and they were very professional and sympathetic about it, but under the circumstances I can't give it more than 3 stars overall."
Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"
Pros: "I had a medical incident and air Canada moved me to a more comfortable seat and gave me oxygen to help me recover. Also the stuardesses all were really nice and made it their priority to make sure I was doing OK through the rest of the flight"
Cons: "There was no designated person as a medical professional to handle emergency situations. an emergency situation can occur anytime. luckily there was a passenger aboard who knew what to do I think his name was Dave you should give him thanks."
Pros: "Nice staff ...diverse too ..all good"
Pros: "This was my first time in Canada never been there before I had a great time until that one moment I had to deal with workers from air Canada except one agent at the ticketing desk....I had checked in online the day before however I had some card issues because they got shut down by my bank and due to the holiday in America I was unable to call my Bank prior to the airport....got to the airport and tried to explain that all I wanted to do was pay for my bag with cash ...but no one took the time out to listen each time i tried explaining myself I was send to a different location to join another line ....by the time I got to someone who was willing to listen my flight was closed ..her name was Aurora and gave me nothing but attitude when I explained my story......anyways finally got to ticketing and a met the only agent that day who exercise some level of customer service that day...if only I could remember her name ...sigh she went the extra mile because at this point I was frustrated and unsure if I would make it out of the country a sane person due to the amount of chaos I experienced prior. She got LISTENED .....SHE TOOK THE TIME TO LISTEN...got me on a new flight and went above an beyond to assist me that morning I was on the verge of a breakdown at that point all other staff member was very disgusting not only to my self but the other individuals who had mishaps that morning."
Cons: "My bag did not make it. After dealing with this airline I was not surprised. They told me to call back in 3 days."
Pros: "Excellent and diverse film selection. I broadened my horizons watching documentaries on hacking, gun running, and on an Afghan refugee teen in Iran, a film about a black American teen in Germany, and a French drama."
Cons: "Most of the time economy class is uncomfortable because of the lack of foot room. So this time, for the long flight from China, I chose an exit row precisely for the extra leg space. However, there is no footrest at all , which as you're surely aware, is terribly uncomfortable when sitting for long periods, let along trying to sleep. Furthermore, the exit row seats are not provided a substitute for missing the usual back-of-the-seat pocket with magazines ; that means no spot to place books/papers/trash for the entire flight. Finally, I am 5'2 and petite, and was seated between two fairly slim men, and yet we were still all squeezed side to side. I had no elbow rest. I actually rested my head on one man's shoulder, once he was asleep, and hope he didn't notice. While this is unfortunately typical of economy class, it is not decent."
Cons: "Air Canada also bumped our flight to 3 hrs earlier."
Pros: "I liked that is an all business carrier, the steward was personable and totally on charged. For a short flight it was excellent !!"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew."
Cons: "I was held aside at the customs area and had a difficult time figuring out what was going on. Signage was less than helpful, and staff were unaware of why I was being held. After over 30 minutes during which the gate staff could only tell me to wait and watch for my initials on the electronic board, the staff learned that some bags on my arrival flight had been accidentally diverted to Canadian customs rather than US customs, and passengers could not proceed to connecting flights until our bags were located. The customer service staff then worked very hard on our problem. I was instructed to re-book my flight, since by now the doors were about to close - but that customer service person could not re-book me, and I had to queue up again for another agent. When I got to the desk, that agent was able to get me approved to board my flight sans bag, ran me to the front of the Immigration line, and got me to my gate in time to board. I deeply appreciate her assistance, as my family was already on the plane."
Cons: "After crossing in a 787 from Zurich this small older jet to Austin looked and felt like 15 years ago. Bathroom was bad for a 6'2" guy."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Coach seating on the 777 is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Stewardess was friendly Movies were good Relatively room and clean Customs in Vancouver was awesome!!!"
Cons: "Steward getting on the plane in Shanghai had an attitude, was actually a jerk Food was not very appetizing"
Pros: "The landing of the plane was good and one flight attendant was courteous. The movie options were pretty good. At least the wine was free."
Cons: "The check-in counter in DCA was AWFUL with only two people running and no kiosks working. They were rude and didn't listen to us either. When we got to the food part, it was disguisting. First of all, I am vegetarian but even if I ate meat, I wouldnt have eaten it. So I just ate bread for the 13 hour flight. Besides one flight attendant, the rest were rude, harsh and had a generally bad attitude. AIr Canada has BY FAR been the worst travel experience for me thus far. I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Its entertainment"
Cons: "very uncomfortable coach seats and 4 hour delay in Vancouver airport"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Food was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "There was 1 crew member who once spilled ice over me & laughed it off saying he was just checking to see if I"m awake. Then another time spilled OJ on me & didn't even notice or apologize or offer a napkin so I can clean myself off. Also I had wanted to upgrade my seat for this flight but was unable to because there was no representative at the huge airport in Shanghai. Nor could I do it online. That was a huge inconvenience!"
Pros: "Great crew and service. Seats were comfortable for tall people."
Cons: "Delays for both international flights. Food made us sick."
Pros: "Just about everything. And to top it all off, I found that the air inside the cabin was very good and so I arrived after 14 hours on board without red eyes and a headache"
Cons: "Although the air planes are newer, the seats are uncomfortably smaller which makes long distance flights very unpleasant."
Pros: "No protection from noise. Gave up watching movies."
Cons: "Better earphone"
Pros: "comfortable environment and quality service."
Cons: "Flight delayed half hour, rush through all the steps, we are the first one get to the plane. But all the other people can not make it because we sit at near front and started the rush earlier. However, all of our checked luggage so can not make it. We are waiting for delivery on the next day. This type of short connection of international flight should not be arranged as we told you and AC when you told us the original booking was changed due to AC flight modification."
Pros: "Crew very polite and professional."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at destination, so this caused a bit of a problem for me as Philadelphia was not my final destination. I had to take a bus the next morning at 7AM to Pittsburgh. My luggage finally was delivered to me within 48 hours, so that was great."
Pros: "I haven't flown in a while and used the USB and 120V outlet with was supplied."
Cons: "As the plane was changed, I needed to check my carryon bag as there wasn't enough space available."
Pros: "Entertainment options, crew were excellent."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Dinner options were a bit of chicken with couscous and veggies or cavatappi with tomatoes. Breakfast was a piece of banana bread, which was good, but I'd have loved something with protein or a piece of fruit."
Pros: "that the crew was friendly"
Cons: "food was awful"
Pros: "Weather was nice so it was not due to weather. We had to stay in Toronto overnight."
Pros: "bigger seats than most average asian airlines"
Cons: "service is poor. have been on both economy and busines class in air canada and you are treated very differently. the staff on economy treat you indifferently and have a little chip of their shoulder. the food is awful and most flights you have to pay for food, even for international flights, which is apparently against the law as they are obligated to serving food. i had to pay for a bowl of noodles - omg. essentially it is really about service. Dismal. It is noted they often win north american awards for their service. If anyone has flown american airlines - yes it may be the best of the worst. So if you have an option, skip it altogether. Try Cathay / Qatar / Singapore airlines wow!"
Pros: "Professional, experienced crew."
Cons: "Food was no better than I remember from years ago- I forgot to pack my own lunch and wish I had."
Cons: "Flight delayed for no good reason"
Pros: "On both legs of our flight to and from O'Hare to China, we had delays. The first was due to an ice storm in Toronto, where we changed planes, then the second due to compromised air space over the China Sea that Air Canada wisely chose to delay our flight rather than take a risk. The delays were handled professionally and pleasantly. It wasn't their fault. The agents and flight attendants were very attentive in trying to help us get our connecting flights, such as switching us to the front of the plane before landing so we could get off quickly. Alas, it didn't work, but they tried. Our checked bags came off quickly. I felt that we had more legroom on our AC flights than I have had recently on American aircrafts. Temperature was comfortable. We were regularly given water, drinks, and we had complementary meals with beer or wine. Food was pretty average, but the beverages were good. I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Food was just okay."
