Pros: "Clear communication on flight boarding"
Cons: "Attendant could have been more friendly."

Pros: "Courteous crew and staff"
Cons: "Check bags online for all flights"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "American booted me out of First Class despite having upgraded me two days prior."
Pros: "Upgraded seat on the Boeing 777 was near the exit, and I had plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Although British Airways and American Airlines are alliance partner companies, their systems don’t behave as such. It took me too many attempts to mention in order to simply upgrade my seat. The booking locator number is different for both airlines, and no one ever informed me of that critical information"
Pros: "Departure was on time"
Cons: "Really hard seats, no phone charger outlets, on board WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "We arrived to LAX at the same scheduled time and the pilots were very informative when we might have turbulence."
Cons: "Head phone jack was broken, was told by one attendant that they would fix it. He never came back, told someone else and they said sorry, there was an open seat 6 rows back. Was not going to have my son sitting by himself. Knowing that you have to check many things prior to the flight, maybe have a back up plan for something like this."
Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."
Pros: "We took off and arrived on time. That was the only thing they did right."
Cons: "The service was terrible. The stewardess was clearly doing exactly what she needed to in order to not get fired."
Pros: "Paying for food (sarcastically) — the staff on the flight need hospitality training"

Pros: "Flight attendant, David, was extremely professional and nice."
Pros: "The streaming entertainment was nice."
Cons: "The heat was on and even after complaining to the flight attendants, they couldn't change it. Many of us were so uncomfortable with the heat for a 5 hour flight."
Cons: "They put a bunch of crying babies next to me, other than that it was a good experience."
Pros: "I loved the crew on my trip"
Cons: "Nothing everything was grate"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather, but nothing can change that. We still landed on time. Many other passengers were complaining."
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Pros: "It's not the person at the gate's fault. She tried to be very informative and kind."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 630am. It's currently 945am and I'm still in the airport. Now a new maintenance issue was found. Flying is a first world luxury with first world problems."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing special, nothing wrong. On time."
Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."
Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights. Entertainment good but touchscreen was not responsive and frustrating to operate. Long walk to new terminal for connecting flight even though flight was listed as the same flight number for both legs."
Cons: "Chairs were a bit tight"
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Cons: "No wifi nor power outlets. The entertainment was okay at best."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew gave no information that we weee diverted to SJC instead of SFO. Very poor communication and. It much of an apology. Seems to me the plane was under weight on fuel."
Pros: "* on time * courteous staff"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and efficient. Schedules met my needs."
Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"

Cons: "They forgot to get my coffee but it's nothing major plus we were about to land in 30 mins or so"
Wifi not activated even though wifi is installed onboard
Cons: "Not enough washrooms for # of people. Denied us of from WR. Food carts blocked WR access to most people for long periods of time."
Pros: "Amazing crews"
Cons: "Less option in special request in online. Gates and planes are not updated when applied online"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, I’d expect a bit more for the price paid."
Pros: "Te tightest seat ever, and I'am 75 Fair treatment by the crew Seatwise am not looking forward yo my return in a month Food os fair"
Cons: "Sound system on the in-flight movie was horrible. Headphones didn't work in the jack, static obscured the sound. Tried different headphones but had the same result. Not too much of a problem. Flight was short and wouldn't have had time to watch the full movie anyway. Everything else was great. Staff was amazing. Seats were comfortable. Boarding was fairly quick."
Pros: "It was comfirtable"
Cons: "They charged you for earphones. On our flight to St. John’s they didn’t charge for earphones. The flight from Toronto to St. John’s was delayed almost 4 hours because a deicing machine guy thought he saw a blemish on the tail of the plane. After that we went to maintenance, after that our flight crew timed out and we went back to the gate, deplaned and waited. Then we got back on THE SAME PLANE and never arrived until 8pm. We should’ve been there at 3pm and lost almost 1/2 a day of our vacation. I will never take this airline again!!!!!"

Pros: "Reasonable food"
Cons: "One suitcase did not arrive. Not sure when will arrive"

Pros: "Clean plane. Polite staff"
Cons: "Little leg room"
Pros: "Crew responsive to service requests. Was able to select an exit row seat upon checkin online. Enough room for carry-on luggage to be stowed Check in helped us get to flight on time despite many customers."
Cons: "Limited selection of on-board food (Many items in the menu were not available)"
Pros: "Food, service, seat (Business class), aircraft"
Cons: "No internet connection"

Cons: "The delay, but not a big deal."
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled and we got home"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Planes were clean, relatively comfortable & flight attendants were polite. Flights that had individual screens on the seatbacks offered good movie choices."
Cons: "Ugh. Delays of 1-2hrs each on 3 of 4 flights for one trip. Missed connecting flight in Toronto. Baggage was a disaster. No communication between staff, was told something different by each person I spoke with. Flew to London & didn't get my bag for 3 days. Flight delays put me in to London a day late, wearing same clothes without access to my bag & lost 4 more hours of site-seeing time following day calling the airline & trying to meet up with courier delivering my bag. Then on my 7hr midday flight back to the states our plane had no screens at all for in flight entertainment. Security and Customs check process was ridiculously long. Waiting in line after line, and the automated kiosks processing passports were fickle delaying lines & leading to further follow up by staff. Very confusing and overheard several passengers talking about missing connecting flights. I highly recommend not flying Air Canada until they become more organized."
Pros: "On time, a huge variety of new movies, the meal was very good."
Pros: "Going through customs and immigration in Canada before returning to the US is very convenient and saves time after you land."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and helpful!"
Cons: "This was the last leg of a 24 hour journey from Venice to Seattle for my sister and me. After having a 3 1/2 hour layover, our plane was supposed to leave at 6:30 PM and kept getting delayed. One of the biggest frustrations was the lack of communication by the staff! We could see them at the counter where our gate was but no one would come out and talk to us! Our plane finally got off the ground at 8:30 PM!"
Pros: "Clean, prompt, attentive staff"
Pros: "The good, each seat has a tv."
Cons: "Waiting over 72 hours and my bag has still not arrived. Both planes were delayed, even with the 2nd flight being delayed I still had to run in order to make it. Being on time is not something Air Canada has figured out."
Pros: "The ticket agent in Cincinnati was courteous and informative. Very helpful"
Pros: "Got to spend the night in Toronto unexpectedly."
Cons: "Due to Air Canada's I missed my flight to Amsterdam. I missed out on a day of sightseeing and having fun and Amsterdam instead I spent a day in Toronto. I was able to get on a flight 24 hours later. This missing connection happens routinely with Air Canada, for some reason they have not managed to fix the error."
Pros: "Clear communication"
Cons: "45 minute delay"
Pros: "The movie selection was relatively good."
Cons: "They changed my seat 3 times before I got on the plane (from a window seat to an aisle seat and much farther back on the plane). I didn't complain and got on the plane, only to be told for a forth time (after I had already settled in my seat) that I had to change my seat again, to a middle seat. It was by far the least comfortable seat I have sat in with very little room both in front of and next to me. Nobody should be asked to move like that, especially after choosing my seat online at least three months prior to the flight when I purchased my ticket. Food also not great."
Cons: "Cancelled flights, delays, no refund option so I had to wait 15hrs to get to a 1 hrs destination. Then they lost my luggage so my mini weekend away turned into a disaster. I basically wasted $1,000 for a nightmare trip. If they would've just issued a refund in the beginning I would've been fine w the cancelation."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave Cancun at 6:00 p.m. and arrive in Montreal at 11:00 p.m. It did not leave until after 8:00 p.m. And I could not get any information from an agent. I actually emailed my friend in Canada and she was able to get information online. We did not arrive in Montreal until after 1:00 a.m. The plane was incredibly cramped, our knees were right up against the forward seat. There was no compensation for being late...a snack or free drink, etc."
Pros: "It was an easy flight and went smoothly."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great with children."
Cons: "Multiple confusing security processes at airport. Huge lines. Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "flight was cancelled. huge inconvenience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours first without any communication, later with very unclear communication. Spent multiple hours at the airport just to have to fly out next morning at 6:30am. Wasted day, wasted night. Delays can happen, but according to the finally communicated cause this could all have been communicated early on (crew not available in Cleveland, that was two flight legs earlier)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours. After landing, sat on the runway for one hour waiting for a gate. horrible."
Pros: "That this flight had entertain system that was on broad. Did not have to down load or use your horrible app."
Cons: "You should provide food or snacks for flights over 2hours with no charge. We were only offered a drink. Some people do not carry credit cards to purchase items."
Pros: "Wifi was a bonus (not free, but was good to have, and worked well). Staff was friendly."
Cons: "How can you operate a plane with no operable washroom? I left the plane in pain. I hope Air Canada execs have the same pain one day! Shame on you!"
Cons: "The seating was tight."
Pros: "good entertainment but otherwise average or less"
Cons: "The announcement about turbulence were to much. Could have been way more subtle or shorter"
Pros: "As opposed to my flight from Tokyo to Toronto, the return leg from Toronto to Baltimore had only one exception, which was that the flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "From boarding (everything was late, from departure to arrival), to how the baggage carousel announcement was wrong, and up to the bus that will take us back to the parking (all the other buses: Amtrak/Marc, Long Term A, Daily Parking, Express Parking came and went for about 4 times or more but none came for Long Term B, you can see all the frustration from the other waiting passengers, including us). A lot of improvements needed from BWI airport if they want to retain their customers."
Pros: "Airplane was clean and crew was nice."
Cons: "Changed the non stop flight on me to stop in TO from Montreal. Really lame and added 3 extra hours to my flight back to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Newer plane, tv monitors in coach class, on time departure"
Pros: "Oversold didn't have seats but we were able to get on. They decided to use a smaller plan a large number of people could not leave. We were luckyOversold didn't have seats but we were able to get on. They decided to use a smaller plan a large number of people could not leave. We were luckyOversold didn't have seats but we were able to get on. They decided to use a smaller plan a large number of people could not leave. We were lucky"
Cons: "vwry stressful ending a vacation not knowing if you will get home until the last minute"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and did an excellent job of responding to request for help with passenger who was encroaching into my space from the aisle while the fasten seatbelt sign was on."
Cons: "Crew was strangely inflexible about only specific headphones during takeoff & ascent."
Pros: "NOTHING AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SERVICE"
