Airline reviews

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the food was delicious and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. The staff definitely need better training at adapting with the Covid 19 situation. Especially, when it comes to unexpected occurrences regarding test certificates and sudden new regulations. Not everything is always black and white and not everyone has the same capacity to afford rebooking flights or re-testing. Treatment of foreigners in general at the LAX airport, on my flight at least, were unprofessional and inconsiderate. I generally like flying with Japan Airlines but after what I have seen and experienced personally I’m not so sure it is still one of my number one airlines to fly with anymore."

Pros: "The seats in Economy are larger than normal airlines and had extra leg room. My partner is 6ft2in and he sat comfortable, even when the people in front reclined. The staff was so polite and helpful. I will definitely fly JAL again!"
Cons: "The food was a little bland, but that is nit picking. For airline food, it was very good."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Connection time at Narita is too long"

Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent -- friendly, always helpful, energetic."
Cons: "We requested a seafood special meal. The food quality was satisfactory, but most of the items tasted very bland. The accompanying dishes were unimaginative -- raw vegetables (salad), steamed vegetables, pickled vegetables. One exeption was a smoked salmon bit with capers -- this was the tastiest part among 8 meals over 4 flights."

Cons: "The crew members could have been more courteous to clients on the flight by lowering their voices when conversating among themselves."

Pros: "The crew was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie choices were limited."

Cons: "Wider arm rests"

Pros: "The Crew was great with kids, and went out of their way to reach out to the boy sitting in the row in front of me."

Pros: "Everything!!! Excellent customer service. Will definitely use their airlines whenever possible.Very polite and always smiling and frequently checks on you if u need anything unlike other airlines."

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Their customer service is excellent! when I left my card (fell out of my pursue while in transit), they called me immediately! After a long vacation, exploring. I was extremely tired and and left my phone completely on silent for 4 days, and within those 4 days they called and left me messages. Lucky I live here in Hawaii, can you imagine being a tourist and you lost your card? Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours. We have a connecting flight from Osaka to Los Angeles, which we were worried we couldn't make it. They told me the flight will wait for us because there were 20 plus people also need to get on that plane. When the time of boarding we heard they were calling us to the front and explained the flight we were suppose to be connecting already took off. They had to booked us to another airline. We were extremely disappointed! We asked if we could took another Japanese airline but they said our luggages were already transferred to that airline and the tickets were printed! Mosf importantly we have already waited in airport 5 hours and they needed us to wait for another 3 hours! Very bad experience with how they dealing with this situation!"

Cons: "I wasn't able to pre-select my seat."

Pros: "Flight attendants are all nice, polite and always smile. Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Waited for one and a half hrs before the plane took off, almost an hr went by then they announced some minor problem with engine. Good reason but they had a/c on so cold all these times. Also I would appreciate coffee or some drink while waiting...I guess that's not possible in this case."

Pros: "The customer service overall was really good."
Cons: "The food always messes up my stomach, where the whole day after I can’t eat anything"

Pros: "The food is good. The seats for regular economy are a bit more spacious. They also have some deal with fast food restaurants, Mos Burger and Yoshinoya so sometimes you can get their air version of the fast-food meals. I had Yoshinoya and it was pretty good. The entertainment was okay, the only 2 things I wanted to watch was John Wick 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the movies change every month so it was probably a bad batch. Also free toothbrushes and toothpaste available on the plane and a self service snack area. Overall it was great."

Pros: "Very warm attendants Excellent food for the price paid Highly professional crew Efficient boarding and ontime takeoff"

Cons: "The father next to me that spilled two drinks on me. I didn't even get an apology. Beyond sold out plane too..."

Cons: "Didn't get to go. Thanks for selling me worthless insurance."

Pros: "The flight attendants are quick in services and with great manner. Cabin foods are generous, filled with variety and tasting the best among various international airlines that I have experienced between LAX and Taipei, Taiwan in the past ten years. The seat belt on light and bell were kept at minimal, in contrast to other airlines like EVA, China Airlines, Korean Airlines and United Airlines."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight Delayed for almost an hour Luggage got delayed in Japan not received in VN till 2 days later Small seat -uncomfortable"

Pros: "The cabin crew was professional, friendly and courteous. It's always refreshing to fly an Asian airline for the impeccable customer service. The 787 left me with minimal jet lag. The odd shaped pillows provided great back support."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but old fashioned. The WiFi was spotty and it would have been nice to have Asian food options."

Pros: "Good, clean aircraft; professional, pleasant, well-trained crew. Felt good when I embarked, felt good when I disembarked. Can't ask for more than that."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Although, i booked businesss class l. I had to pay 1000 yen for each flight for seat selection. (They were giving me seats 50C) And no lounge facility either. All i got was 2000 yen and upgrade to J class. I had already paid extra for business class. This is highway robbery. No thanks JAL"

Pros: "Good staff service and friendly people. The food was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The Pilot communicated to the passengers only one time during this 4 1/2 hour flight. The flight attendants were making the announcements for arrival information and timing. Maybe in this culture the Pilot is above speaking to the passengers."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Not anyone fault but I wish seating was better fitted in economy for taller people"

Pros: "All was fine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The fact that everything is included with the flight makes it very easy to fly with JAL. The staff was friendly and helpful when I was checking in. The agent tried her best to get me a window or aisle seat but was unable to. That didn't matter though. Airlines in the US should learn from them and treat their customers the same way."

Pros: "that it was actually flown by JAL not china southern"
Cons: "the confusion of having one company selling another's tickets makes finding the gate difficult."

Pros: "Everything from check in till I got off the plane was fantastic. Friendly and helpful crew with impeccable service unlike a certain few airlines. Will definitely use JAL again!"
Cons: "Can't think of any"

Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."

Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"

Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"

Pros: "Friendly staff great food and customer service very comfortable seating wonderful atmosphere. Thank you much for taking care of me"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Cons: "Good as expected"

Pros: "Fast travel"
Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "Crew at boarding and on flight were not kind. Very disappointing"

Pros: "Comfortable seats."

Pros: "They are all very friendly"

Pros: "Boarding process and take off was the most efficient - truly impressive! I don’t think this had anything to do with the airline, but every flight with them was so quiet (no crying babies/children, loud adult conversations), I thought I could hear the pin drop! Their safety demonstration was uniquely done by dancer, which made it interesting to watch every time! I left my jacket on one of my flights, but they returned it to me when I boarded the next flight - I was gratefully surprised! They had complementary tooth brush/toothpaste, ear plugs and eye masks in the restrooms. I thought this was a good way to reduce passing out items not all passengers wanted. I wish all airlines could copy these amazing features from them."
Cons: "Their meals were underwhelming- in four flights on my trip, they were basically the same main course. The rolls with margarine, same fruit and strongly cultural seasoned vegetables that were served every time, all of which I could not eat. I have liked every airline meals and hospital food, but their food was below institutional food quality. For an Asian airline, the flight attendants were rather crude in their speech and mannerisms. I could barely hear and understand the announcements in spite the fact that passengers were extremely quiet. Their choices of movies were very poor; it seemed that 3 out of 4 flights had similar options."

Pros: "Crew and attendants did very well"
Cons: "Gate change communication"

Pros: "Food."
Cons: "The economy seat is too cramped!"

Pros: "Food is good"

Cons: "Food was not really appetizing."

Pros: "Fast and friendly service of the flight crew, The captain keeping us informated of turbulents and flight arrival time."
Cons: "Hard to sleep on international flights , especially when they last more then 8 hrs. I like that they are early morning flights . Not sure how to battle jet lag after a long flight. If Eva air could make a video / on board flight video on how to battle jet lag ."

Pros: "Service and landing were great."
Cons: "Too cramped and people who coughed the whole flight which isn’t airline’s fault. Wine wasn’t good at all."

Pros: "Everything from boarding to entertaiment."

Pros: "Good food. Lots of movie selections. I like the amenities in the bathroom."

Pros: "Eva Air had attendants on the ground pointing us all in the right direction to catch our flights with the minimum delay! Such a Quick turn around I was expecting my luggage wouldn't even make the flight!! But it did!! Also liked their mood lighting to replicate the time of day, since they asked us to keep our shades pulled all the time. Nice restrooms and I appreciated the toothbrush, earplugs and eyeshades they stocked in the restrooms!"
Cons: "Seats were tight. I usually have food served that will acclimate you to your destination city time zone. Not so with Eva Air. Two dinners instead of a Breakfast."

Pros: "Quick boarding, felt like more leg room than usual, polite courteous staff, good movie selection."
Cons: "Food was good, but I've had better with other Asian airlines. They served me croissant with breakfast that was so dry, it crumbled all over my lap."

Pros: "Attentive crew, clean washrooms, decent chairs, great food, enough entertainment. It was easy to transfer trains in an airport we have never been to."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "Wonderful service, comfortable seating (compared to American airline seats) and attentive and polite crew!"

Pros: "Beautiful stewardesses on EVA, big aircraft."
Cons: "TVs are outdated and small. Not as roomy as the 777."

Pros: "economy plus was well worth the extra money"

Pros: "i liked the emergency seat because I had more room"
Cons: "The flight from Seattle to Taiwan was one of the worst flights I ever had. Not only was there no outlet for me to do work, but the 2nd level of the plane was unusually warm and stuff. However flying back from Taiwan to Seattle was not as uncomfortable, it was still annoying to not have an outlet. Also the entertainment screen on those flights were really small. Lastly, the food overall was mediocre, but that was not as big of a deal to me."

Pros: "I remember back when i was a kid and my Grandmother took us to Disneyland, back when there was "Service" in the USA. If i can avoid any US carrier, and I will fly with EVA. there is meals on flight, checked bags, carry-on bags, smiles, all without extra fees, charges, and they were least expensive to fly."
Cons: "As with all airlines the seats are a little tight and a bit more legroom would be nice, I am a larger man and it was still comfortable even after 18 hours of flight time."

Pros: "same as previous flight"
Cons: "same as previous flight"

Pros: "I became very light-headed during flight and received excellent and compassionate care. Wonderful crew."
Cons: "The food is fine but not great"

Pros: "There was a lot to keep you busy."
Cons: "The food was dry."

Pros: "No issues with boarding Departed and landed on time Nice blankets"
Cons: "Food was not good TV/movie options seemed limited Hot tea was very bitter"

Cons: "I had a strange experience with flight attendants who were obsessed with open and closed Windows (honestly why does it matter?) and was constantly being told to take off headphones which no other airlines make you do anymore. The flight attendants were just overbearing and rude at times."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Personalized attention"

Pros: "They didn't feed me after 12 hours of flight from Taiwan to Seattle."
Cons: "Nothing to like about Alaska airlines."

Cons: "Always late, had been sitting in the airplane did 3 hours before even starting my 12 houra flight. My other 3 flights were also not on time..."

Pros: "My connecting flight was late and they held my flight from Taipei to Seattle for me to make that flight, otherwise would have been a 24 hr wait. Thank you EVA! What great service!"

Cons: "Unable to travel due to Corona restrictions, company would not refund ticket."

Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"

Cons: "Server was mean"

Pros: "Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system."
Cons: "Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights."

Pros: "The economy seat was surprisingly comfortable"

Cons: "-"

Pros: "The leg space was great for economy class. There was room for bags in the overhead. The movie selection was great."
Cons: "Boarding via bus.... first bus had kids, business class, and people who needed help. Second bus had everyone else. Both waited on the tarmac for the plane to be ready and both busses opened the doors at the same time. The families were swamped while trying to load the plane with kids in tow."

Pros: "I like the cree"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight left on time. Comfortable 747-400 plane with huge overhead bins and plenty of leg room even in economy, Great cabin crew. Food was, well, airplane food. But at least there was a vegetarian choice, which I looked way better than the meat dish,"
Cons: "Service was a bit rushed at the end. In the last hour of a 10-hour flight they served another meal, which was similar to the first meal (even though it could have served as breakfast or lunch). Also had to fill out the customs declaration and prepare for landing,"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Movie selection was very limited"

Pros: "Their airport service is outstanding. We were traveling with a mobility challenged person and they were so helpful in getting us through check in, out to our gate, and through boarding."
Cons: "The service and staff on the plane are top notch, and the meals and drinks were very satisfying. The entertainment center on each seat had enough choices to pass the time. I rate Lufthansa a very good choice for trips to Europe, and will use them on my future trips."

Cons: "Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful."

Cons: "Very bad food"

Pros: "I'll probably never fly Basic Economy again....it's worth the extra money."

Cons: "See first comment."

Pros: "everything was good other than the entertainment package"
Cons: "not verymany movies to select"

Pros: "Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded."

Pros: "I am in love with these guys! They made me feel very welcomed and proved that German quality is the highest one. The crew was just brilliant! Incredible comfort. Thank you!"

Pros: "So much more comfortable to sit and sleep on such a long flight. Worth every penny!"

Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."

Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."

Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"

Pros: "The food and service is always good. In flight entertainment and nice planes!"
Cons: "To board- it's just a long queue - any way to shorten line so we don't have to stand for so long?"

Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"

Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. I enjoyed the choice of entertainment. Food and drink were fine."
Cons: "I wish we had more leg room. It was so crowded and I could barely move!"

Pros: "Staff on board was cordial und Wunderbar"
Cons: "Handle on wife's Travel Scoot was slightly bent but it still works."

Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."

Cons: "Food was pretty bad"

Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."

Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the crew very nice, the food good and many good movies to choose from."
Cons: "Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either."

Pros: "non stop to Frankfurt very timely scheduleing was able to find reasonably priced flight to meet my travel needs."
Cons: "I felt the food was worse not good or tasteless. choices were as bad as previous flight in the fall. I have to bring snacks to make it bearable."

Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."

Pros: "Entertainment, flight crew was courteous and helpful, lots of snacks, water, and free wine!"
Cons: "One of our pieces of luggage did not make it back with us. The good thing is that the Lufthansa staff was helpful, the automated emails kept me informed, and the bag was delivered to me as soon as possible. Seems to me it was as good as it gets when a piece of luggage gets lost."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No food service for a evening flight. Delayed because of a toilet problem."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."

Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew was excellent"
Cons: "One flight assistant seemed a bit gruff and impatient compared to the others . Also food was nothing special. We could have used more water offerings and trash pickups during the flight afterwards the cabin was a mess."

Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."

Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"

Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."

Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding. Cheerful and helpful crew. Clean cabin. Everything was 100%."
Cons: "Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end."

Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."

Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"

Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Comfortable and clean. Staff was kind and helpful."
Cons: "The food wasn't good. The pasta was soggy and the bread was hard and stale."

Pros: "You fed us a lot, which was appreciated. The food was pretty good, especially for airline food. And you were generous with the alcohol:-)"
Cons: "My seat mate was very difficult. I'd appreciate more movie selection, like newer US films."

Cons: "Didn't take it"

Pros: "First meal was great, second meal was just ok. Seats felt a little cramped for an international flight."
Cons: "Boarding felt like a disorderly free-for-all with people making two competing lines that had to eventually merge. Designating a clear queue would probably not only speed things up, but would improve passenger happiness. You could literally draw a stripe on the floor for each entrance."

Pros: "Everything was great. Good movies, helpful crew, good food for an airline."

Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."

Pros: "They held the flight for us."
Cons: "Something to eat"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Better snacks."

Cons: "Wider seating"

Cons: "Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night."

Cons: "Everything. My first leg of this trip was the worst flight I had ever been on and this leg lived up to that standard"

Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "food"

Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"

Pros: "Service was wonderful and flight pretty much smooth for the 6;5 hour ride back to Seattle. I do enjoy taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Had a 350 pound gentleman in the seat in front of me and had he had no idea of how stressed I was when he would try to adjust his to go back further."

Pros: "- entertainment - smooth boarding"
Cons: "- very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats"

Pros: "Entertaining"
Cons: "Crew"

Cons: "But the second plane was worse.... no video screens of any kind, no charging of any kind, no headrests, chairs were stiff and uncomfortable. You can stream shows on their wifi (free) but only if you have a charged smartphone or tablet, otherwise you're SOL. 2 bathrooms for the main cabin on a 6 hour flight"

Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."

Pros: "One nickel hostess"
Cons: "PAID FR UPGRADDED SESTS AND THEY WETE GIVEN TO LATE ARRIVALS."

Pros: "Other passengers"
Cons: "It was terribly hot and the attendants didn’t serve us regularly. The skipped us when we wanted cold water:"

Pros: "Had row to ourselves."
Cons: "Entertainment arm rest did not work, flight attendants we're not very attentive to used items left on tray s to pick up. Empy cans ad wrapper s say for 3 hours before being picked up. Middle rest room was left very dirty due to bad hygene of passengers."

Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"

Pros: "The aircratf and on time operation"
Cons: "Gate agents not following AA.com policies to charge extra fees"

Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."

Cons: "No outlet and waited idle for a long time before getting to get off plane also had to walk my bag back bc there was no overhead storage space in the bins which prevented me from getting off the plane sooner"

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time Crew was very friendly Free movies while in flight is always nice Mobile boarding pass - every airline should have them (but they don't)"
Cons: "Having to pay $35 for a little extra leg room"

Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."

Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening. It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!"

Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"

Cons: "no charging station"

Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"

Cons: "It took a while day to get our bags after they decided to put it on the next flight"

Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."

Cons: "close it!"

Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."
Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."

Pros: "It was effortless... easy boarding and accommodating crew. There was a lot of turbulence so only one beverage service and no food. Would rather be safe than have crew injured."

Pros: "Delayed"

Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"

Cons: "Bad as above"

Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."

Pros: "seat comfortable enough"
Cons: "unbelievably tightly spaced seats. Incredibly uncomfortable to have knees pushed into seat ahead - - so tight almost impossible to get feet under seat."

Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "We boarded an hour early. It was at least 80° on the plane, and then everyone got on. The crew was very rude. They ignored everyone in coach."

Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "See above comments"

Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"

Cons: "2 different attendants spilled drinks all over me and my carry on"

Cons: "Never made it because first leg was canceled"

Pros: "Flight was canceled due to maintenance problem, American claimed rebooking was someone else's responsibility. I had to talk to 4 people before they rescheduled me for the next day. American's gates/terminals at LAX are also a pain--you never know if your flight will depart from the hinterlands of Tom Bradley terminal, or Terminal 4 or 6, which can mess you up with parking/security screening/scheduling. I will try to avoid flying American in the future. I didn't get any vouchers for the cancellation, either. BD"

Pros: "Great service. Lots of legroom"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Was called ahead of time to e alerted to flight delay. But I'm still never flying American again due to the rudeness of the crew."
Cons: "We're asked at the gate to measure our luggage. We did, and while it fit, the material of the bag made it look bulky (but upon touch, it was clearly not a full bag). When we said that it fit; the woman literally just scoffed, said "no" rudely, and walked away. We were polite, so why the rudeness?!! Never again AA."

Pros: "Nothing...I had to be rerouted to Chicago to Seattle!"
Cons: "The fact that through no fault of my own, I arrived in Seattle much later than expected and my clients were not particularly happy with the delay."

Pros: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"

Cons: "Tight seating"

Pros: "Nostalgic plane ride"
Cons: "Use more modern plane for these short trips. No drinks offered due to turbulence. Old Bombardier plane had no way of storing carry-ons other than beneath seat, thus limiting leg space"

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: "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: "My 15 minute nap"
Cons: "The male crew member seemed to be having a rough day."

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"

Cons: "Temperature varied widely throughout the flight. Entertainment system down for over an hour. No fresh food left for the back of the plane - Late departure."

Cons: "Employees very poorly trained in dealing with problems. While our flight was okay, the previous flight was overbooked and a number of transferring customers were bumped because their flight was late. I understand this is common practice, but the employees handled it VERY poorly, even yelling at the passengers when they voiced their dismay at what was going to be a very long layover after a very long international flight."

Pros: "Getting off the plane!!!"
Cons: "Everything!!!"

Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and comfortable seats"

Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."

Pros: "Flight was good, decent food and drink"
Cons: "the delay caused ua to miss connection and had to be rebooked"

Cons: "Flight was about an hour late due to crew problems."

Pros: "Air Canada's crew is very professionnal."

Pros: "It was fine. :-)"

Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."

Cons: "Sitting on the ground and missing a connection"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "No legroom at all. Try to squeeze far too many passengers."

Pros: "Our flight attendant, Sabrina, was fantastic. Quite friendly and helpful. You can tell she loves her job. She patiently answered questions and made the flight really pleasant."

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."

Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Short flight. Great service (got a soda and pretzels on a 30 minute flight)"
Cons: "Small, worn plane."

Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."

Pros: "I was really tired and the plane was full but I could nap. Baggage came quickly."
Cons: "No free meal because not technically an international flight I guess."

Pros: "Not really stands out as a positive."
Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."

Pros: "Very fast."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food from McDonalds would have been 10 times better than food they served. I ate only 2 bites and it smelled bad and made me feel nautilus."

Pros: "I liked that I was able to pick my seat. I love the exit row."
Cons: "Being woken up. But it was for a good reason. Personal safety."

Cons: "Air Canada closed the door ten minutes before departure although the knew we were in the terminal trying to get to the gate. Air Canada charged us $315 for a flight two hours later."

Pros: "Flight was on time.Seats were comfortable with adequate leg room."
Cons: "There was no snack offered, just food for sale, and it was a long flight. Also there were several movies listed in the entertainment guide that were not available on the entertainment system. There were not many movies available at all."

Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Seating 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: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."

Cons: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."

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: "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: "Flight was on time. Was able to move from my assigned centre of row seat to an aisle seat, which however was I'm the last row outside the toilets. Checked bag came quickly in Seattle. Descent was gradual enough, or something, that my ears, which normally hurt excruciatingly from about 20,00-10,000 feet, barely bothered me."
Cons: "Check in, customs, etc in Toronto was a series of long long lines that took nearly 1.5 hours (not AC's fault but an unpleasant aspect of the trip). Plane was full and very cramped, impossible to get up and walk. The tv monitors on my side/half of the plane conked out midway through flight."

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: "Quick boarding."

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."

Cons: "Boarding in Shanghai was very unorganized. Business class passengers were mixed in with economy class when boarding!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours due to maintenance issues"
