We paid Lufthansa for reserved seats months before this flight. Apparently this was not forwarded to ticketing as the clerk at check-in gave us seats at the very back of the plane next to restrooms and storage. Needless to say, we didn’t sleep at all on our overseas flight. We sincerely hope that our accommodations are better when we return to the US on October 11th.
We were given water only, it will be nice to have a little snack to go with it There was a lot of delays boarding and taking off
They don't serve food in "economy" just water
Pros: "Situation was handled well."
Cons: "Lack of information on the cause of delay."
Pros: "The crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"
Pros: "Crew was professional, kind and capable. Everyone went smoothly and on time. The downstairs bathrooms were great: roomy, clean and FIVE of them so no waiting!"
Cons: "The food was just okay. A better choice of wine and more selection of spirits would be nice."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The plane was was much too hot. It did not reach a comfortable temperature for my wife, who runs cold, for at least 4 hours."
Pros: "Food was good and crew were helpful."
Cons: "Seat could have been comfier!"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
Cons: "Never happened,missed flight"
Cons: "Highly recommended for efficiency"
Cons: "Business class had economy seats which is not what you expect especially for an overnight flight"
Cons: "Seats and space are just too small."
Cons: "There is definetely not much space for passengers in economy' especially for such long flights and when the seat in front of you is inclined. Not pleasant to eat nor to watch movies. I had to slid in and out my seat whenever I wanted to go to the bathroom."
Pros: "the service from boston to frankfurt was flawless, great crew, great entertainment."
Cons: "i was promised the business lounge when i got to Riga because of the lengthy connecting time, i was refused entry and 2 out of the 3 staff were very rude and dismissive. my upgrade included the use of the lounge at both ends of the business class, i understand that it maybe should not of been promised but thats not what happened. i was very tired and ended having to walk round concourse A for 4 hrs with nowhere to go."
Pros: "Food & entertainment were good;"
Cons: "Seats were very tight, several crying babies (no fault of airline) making it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Love the entertainment and meals"
Cons: "There was no entertainment in the flight , which was totallyfine for me as it was a short flight; I downloaded one magazine prior to my initial flight in SFO but was unable to access it."
Pros: "The Germans are known for their efficiency and Lufthansa followed through with that. From the check-in process to cabin service, all was top notch. As I was sitting near the front of economy, any "extra" economy plus meals were handed out as to avoid waste. I was the recipient of a delicious Caprese salad. A nice treat."
Pros: "food was above average drinks were provided often entertainment selection was great staff was well mannered and smiling"
Pros: "It is so nice to flight on board a plane were the staff knows what to do."
Pros: "Short flight with efficient service and coffee"
Pros: "It’s amazing. Fast and comfortable."
Pros: "Good cabin crew service."
Pros: "efficient service. timely departures/ arrivals"
Pros: "Always professional in every detail Great food Great customer service"
Cons: "The variety of drinks"
Pros: "Service was outstanding. Very polite and prompt."
Cons: "LATE!! This is rediculous for a flight company not to be able to board on time so I miss my connection and get stuck for 6 hours"
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Cons: "Crew members were awful and rude and unhelpful. I landed in Munich and had to run to my next flight and when I asked a Lufthansa staff for help in making my connecting flight he turned to me and said "I don't care-this isn't my problem" upon finally making it for last boarding call to my next flight the staff were rude and unhelpful-I was so stressed I literally had a stomachache and felt completely unwelcome."
Cons: "It was a good flight, nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "The flight was punctual and smooth, maun concern!"
Cons: "no tv, no papers, food soso"
Pros: "Appreciate the entertainment options and the crew did an excellent job ensuring that we all were as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Wish there were individual air vents that could be used to help cool off those of us who were hot. Really did not like the hour we sat on the runway waiting for a gate at O'Hare. No entertainment, no bathrooms, no getting up to stretch our legs and it got hot. While not necessarily the airlines fault, it was a sour end to an otherwise good flight."
Pros: "on time great food extra legroom seat"
Cons: "movies sucked"
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane, brand new plane, delicious food, real silverware, Plesant crew, love the entertainment"
Cons: "Chaos when getting in the plane. First come first serve which could lead to problems. Everyone wants to get in the plane at once"
Cons: "The airplane was extremely cold and the flight staff was rude"
Cons: "The seating was poor. The armrest did not go up even so I and another passenger tried hard. I then had to climb over it to be able to get to the washroom at 86 that was not the easiest and again it should not happen regardless. Otherwise I was treated well.I was a wheel chair passenger for medical reason. Thanks Helen"
Pros: "Chairs were uncomfortable, mainly due to the front passenger was always in reclined mode, and the passenger behind me wouldn't let me recline... He would literally push my chair up, but that's probably because his chair can not recline!"
Cons: "We needed to place special request on vegetarian meal, couldn't do it at booking or at checkin, was told to let crew know, they said it's too late. They brought us an "unclaimed" vegetarian meal, but it wasn't, it was Asian halal meal with lamb! After I let crew member know wmy husband was served meat instead, she denied it and said "its not possible" as the wrapper says "vegetarian". I informed her it actually said "Asian halal", she the proceeded to say, well, "i am sorry if it's wrong, but I gave you vegetarian". That said crew member collected my husband's plates while I was in the bathroom and came back later with a "vegan" plate that they now have available."
Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival. Crew was professional if not always friendly."
Cons: "The worst food I can recall I have ever experienced on a plane. So bad that I didn't have more than an unfortunate bite from my "dinner" entree. The food was especially noteworthy as the trip over was so good... In the entertainment category, the sports and news line-up only had old soccer games..."
Pros: "Entertainment options vastly expanded and improved Attentive staff Good check-in Decent boarding - some organisation of boarding by seat - prevents roadblocks by people trying to get to back while those in front are still putting their stuff away and blocking aisle."
Cons: "Given menus for a mediocre meal Booked window seat to sleep - given aisle at last minute when boarding Given drink then meal for overnight flight - meal would be nice - more time to sleep"
Cons: "At the boarding que there was a Lufthansa employee singling out carry on bags for gate check, when they would clearly fit in the overhead. She addressed me and others in a curt and arguably rude tone of voice and mannerisms. No further instruction was given for the gate check process, hence I rolled the small suitcase to the entry of the aircraft, where the Purser asked why I would wish to check the bag. When I recounted the story, he chuckled and said, bring it aboard, there is no reason to check that bag."
Pros: "Champagne in economy class plus food on a 2.5 hr flight! I am a fan of LH."
Cons: "The seat from Cairo to Frankfurt was uncomfortable & the breakfast was not great."
Pros: "Crew crew crew. Great crew. Food Entertainment"
Cons: "Size of seats too small in economy Leg space narrow"
Cons: "After we realized our flight was cancelled we were trying to reach Lufthansa but couldn't for a long time. It was very frustrating. There was nothing we could do on their website either. No alternative flights were offered, no additional information about how and when we can fly home. We had to stay one extra day on Salzburg since this was the only option given to us by Lufthansa when we finally spoke to them the next day. This experience with Lufthansa was absolutely disappointing and we will probably never book with them again."
Pros: "Food was very good, and the service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Delays, and the lines to board took too long."
Pros: "Trip was very comfortable. I was also upgrades which was very nice. I will check the rates for Lufthansa every time I go to Italy. It is the airline of my choice. Also the plane was new and very clean. Thanks Vince F. Chicago"
Pros: "Staff was very good, plane was clean"
The flight was excellent. I have no complaints.
Another delayed flight on American. Another missed connection. No gate when we finally landed, sat on the plane for over 30 minutes and we all missed our connecting flights.
Pros: "Nice attendants was the only thing good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was very late causing problems for connection. Forced to check carryon due to poor storage. Seat instruction were in Spanish. Magazine was in Spanish. This is America and can’t it be in English."
Pros: "The Captain was well spoken and informative. The entire crew really seemed to care. They were so efficient. All of this happened in white-out conditions, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving—the busiest travel day in history! They were AWESOME. And the gate agents took advantage of 3 people who didn’t show to let my family sit together, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was great. I just want American Airlines to stop donating any money at all to those horrible, treasonous Republicans!"
Cons: "Seating is extra tight. I’m 6 feet tall and find American seats to be too closely packed together."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"
Cons: "American Airlines consistently proves that customer service is not a priority. Their servicemen/servicewoman make no effort to show customer care at any point whenever a customer is experiencing difficulty with ticketing or boarding. They are routinely late and appear extremely amateur"
Pros: "AA has good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "1+ hour delay, could’ve left on time"
Pros: "I liked being able to board early as an active duty service member."
Cons: "I don't really have anything to complain about."
Pros: "Seat seemed smaller than previous flight BDL to MIA"
Cons: "On a short flight MIA to GCM AA has seat back screens. On longer flight BDL to MIA no seatback screens. Seems backwards logic!!"
Pros: "The flight was very quick and the crew was very professional"
Pros: "Convenient departure time originally"
Cons: "Late start due to needing more fuel because of weather at the destination. So after everyone had boarded, at the minute we were supposed to take off, they beg for 2 volunteers to get off the flight to compensate for the weight of the excess fuel. Eventually 2 people b3came annoyed enough to get off and take a $200 voucher (probably for another delayed flight.) so we were late taking off for that. At our destination there were clear sunn6 skies. Extra fuel was needed for that. So I was stuck in a seat the size of a child’s car seat for an extra 40 minutes? And when we could finally get off, my legs had fallen asleep ffrom being too squeezed in for that relatively short flight. When will the airlines focus on the passengers’ safety & comfort and not on excessive profits?"
Pros: "We were allowed to take a carryon bag, unlike on a United flight we took on our way from Chicago to Hartford, without paying $30 to do so. When we got to the Gate for this flight, complimentary checking of carry-on bags was allowed, and that helped speed the boarding process, not just for us, but for all the people on the flight."
Cons: "The on-line entertainment system wasn't working."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Small space. Old plane. Tight seats."
Pros: "nothing good nothing bad, just ok."
Cons: "737 might as well be a cattle cart..."
Cons: "spending $600 on a one way flight with you today has been the worst experience and rip off ever! Delayed in Hartford 6 hours. Changed my layover flight in Dallas. Now Dallas delayed 1 hour."
Pros: "When we left the gate"
Pros: "It works if you follow the rules."
Cons: "I could tell you how I liked it if I wasn’t sleeping inthe Ronald Reagan National Airport."
Pros: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time flight."
Cons: "The seats remain too small and the chairback gave my shoulders cramps."
Pros: "Great light, great staff. They did not have any movies or music you could listen to, but everything else was fabulous."
Pros: "all around experience was good arrived in Charlotte early"
Cons: "Nothing to really say wasn't to bad to say..."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
Pros: "courteous helpful & friendly crew and really great ground crew too"
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Pros: "Roomie seat"
Cons: "Made me Put my purse in back of plane"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, no hassles"
Cons: "Tight space but overall not unexpected"
Pros: "Rebooked before we got inside"
Cons: "Landed early but were left on the taxi way for nearly an hour while the gate wasn't ready. The first gate had a plane at it with "mechanical issues". Then it took about 30 minutes to get a different gate. Why do they give short layovers when their performance is not stellar?"
Pros: "I liked having in flight entertainment available. The flight crew was very friendly and allowed me to change seats once boarding was completed to be more comfortable."
Cons: "My only complaint was that it was a long time between pushing off from the gate and lift off but that was due to weather. Not the pilot's fault."
Pros: "Was on time, flight attendants very nice and professional"
Cons: "flight was overbooked good thing people volunteered to give up seats"
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Cons: "i didn't like my seat 8c with no room to put stuff under the seat in front because there was no seat in front and its like theres even less leg room than a normal seat bc crew going up and down the aisle i had to really squeeze in"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, at not fault of the crew on board, however the flight attendants did very little to update the passengers on connecting flights and did not try to help in making the connecting flight aware that some passengers would be delayed. I missed my connection by MINUTES (I saw it still taxied at the gate) and they could not hold the plane for 5 passengers connecting. Awful service and procedures."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"
Cons: "Only pretzels were served. Crew was very nice. Friendly too!"
Cons: "-missed my connecting flight at 10pm due to weather. -waited in long line for customer service -received a phone number to book hotel -waited 30 minutes for shuttle -waited behind 8 people who checked into their rooms -when it was finally my turn they had not received my reservation and I was told to take a seat and wait, -eventually I called the booking number again, the call got dropped due to no service in the hotel lobby -I had to go outside to call after midnight! (a female alone) -finally after 45 minutes they received my reservation. -I didnt get to my room until 1am and had to get up at 5 to get the shuttle back to the airport -Frustrating and nerve racking experience"
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems."
Cons: "The planes were clean but had no phone charging outlets."
Pros: "I liked that the middle seat was open on my flight and that they checked my carry on for free because the plane was filled."
Cons: "I didn't like the minimal leg room. Also, there is no way to try and work on a computer anymore because of the lack of room."
Pros: "Entertainment screens were easy to use and fun. Crew was extraordinarily nice and attentive."
Cons: "Boarded 2 hours late due to the flight crew reaching the maximum amount of hours they can fly by law. American should be more aware of their employees' hours. Seats need better head rests. Menu needs more vegetarian options and the prices need to be lower."
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "It was on time. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No direct flight to my destination. Cramped seating. Didn't realize end of plane seats don't lean back."
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight was good. Overall I was very happy with the overall fight experience."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfy, plus no entertainment and Wi-Fi."
Wow we’re expecting some delays and eve luggage lost but everything was great. The nice airport was also very good with luggage. Perfect start of vacation
Friendly staff especially the Asian lady. Boarding could have been faster but was alright-it was organized.
Pros: "Air Canada's fights to and from Regina to Milwaukee are way to long"
Pros: "The crew on my flight was excellent. Thank you."
Cons: "More leg room in economy class seating. Very little recline of seats. It is torture flying on a Boeing 777 for 8 hours in economy."
Pros: "The variety of food for purchase was nice!"
Cons: "THERE WAS NO WIFI ON A 6HR FLIGHT!!! omg its 2019. mind blown."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Was cold on plane"
Cons: "My seat was GTE. I didnt know till the last minute if I will be able to get on a plane. How does the airline decide which passenger won't have an assigned seat? Is it legal to overbook a flight? There was something wrong with a plane which caused a chain of delayes, that I can kind of understand but wouldn't like to be on standby ever again, too stressful."
Pros: "we had a very good seating distance in row 15"
Cons: "the cabin service was simply bad: very limited meal offerings, drinks were not cold, flight attendants were pretty arrogant."
Cons: "Air Canada knew we were going to miss our connection, as the flight was delayed over and over, yet the staff on the ground insisted all connections would be made, there had been no missed connections all day. As soon as we got to Montreal, we were told due to ice in Montreal Air Canada had been cancelling flights and many connections couldn't be made all day. By that time it was too late to call Vancouver and set up alternative plans for the following day, which is when we would finally leave Montreal."
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: "We left on time and boarding was efficient"
Cons: "As we have learned, airlines, like banks, have figured out how to make more money (even though fuel prices have dropped) fees, fees and more fees and less, less, less services... o food, have to buy and they run out fast... The flight attendants are not as friendly (also depends on the individual) in general..."
Pros: "They provided a meal, a snack, and plenty of beverages. The crew was pleasant, attentive, and helpful."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours. My flight and one other were the last to leave that night. There were no TVs on this flight. The only way to watch movies was on a smart phone or electronic device through their app. My poor old fashioned dad, didn't bring his phone so he would have just sat there for seven and a half hours if I didn't let him borrow mine. AirCanada's alternative is to rent an iPad from them, just another way for airline companies to get money out of us. The movie choices on their app were bad and older. International flights usually have new movies to so it is less likely passengers have seen them already."
Pros: "Everything I'll do the same next trip!!"
Cons: "No complaints!!"
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Cons: "This flight was two and a half hours late. We lost an hour and 45 minutes due to a mechanical problem with our airplane, then lost another 45 minutes due to a storm in Toronto. Air Canada blamed the weather for our late arrival, my missed connection and claimed no responsabilility for the fact that my trip ended up taking more than 24 hours when it was supposed to take about 9 hours. Also, there was the matter of the lost luggage which was a carry on that I accepted to have checked as the Air Canada staff seemed desperate to check our carry ons on a full flight to Toronto from Montreal. I ended up spending the night in the Vancouver airport without access to my luggage."
Pros: "Good flight from Toronto."
Pros: "Excellent staff and crew"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable seats with enough leg room."
Cons: "Cold air blowing on our seats that apparently could not be turned off - we asked twice. Very crowded in terminal with several flights boarding at same time, didnt know when we were being called up and didnt know which line to be in- very confusing"
Pros: "In attempt to recover the failure, they gave one complimentary drink."
Cons: "Planes got messed up which caused groups to get separated. Plane went from a two aisle plane to a single aisle. They had some sort of excuse but I am sure it was primarily to save money since the flight was not full. In flight entertainment kept restarting and the head jack hardly worked. Flight was delayed over an hour due to the plane switch. Also, to top it off they had one attendant that was dutied out so we had to wait longer for another flight attendant. This should have already been figured out before. I have flown Air Canada a lot and this was just not like them. Quite disappointed."
Pros: "I didn't go. They wouldn't allow me to make a change in my ticket so I flew a different airline. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Check in was smooth"
Cons: "I find it unacceptable that 1 bag was free on the inbound flight, but I had to pay extra to check the same bag on my return."
Cons: "My flight got delayed due to weather, and the second leg actually got canceled. I was placed on a later flight that would get me home at 2 am - no thanks! I tried to change it online as an email notification told me I could, but the website then told me I needed to call, which was frustrating. There was a 50 min wait and no call back option, and since I was on international calling, I figured I'd just wait until I got to the airport. The ticketing line looked relatively short, with only three people/ groups ahead of me. Yet it took 75 MINUTES for me to be helped. The people working were the slowest and most incompetent airline workers I've ever come across. I truly don't think either had a clue what they were doing. My agent didn't even know how to view my flights after I provided my passport. He asked me to look them up and read them to him. I had to find an alternative flight on my phone and specifically request to be placed on it since he didn't know how to view my options. Then, he printed me something, pointed me to another counter, and said "I think you're good, but I'm not sure. There's a chance they might refuse you. But I don't think they will." I was like, "Do I have a ticket or not?" And he couldn't give me a straight answer. By the time I left, the line had 15 people/ groups. Processed at the same rate, it'd take over 5 hours for them to be assisted. Never flying this airline again."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Coming back, the drinks and the declaration cards came too late. We were landing when I got a Cole."
Pros: "The plane was on time, boarding was orderly and smooth, service was excellent, and they did a good job on the weather. As a pilot, I would rate it an all around excellent flight."
Pros: "The price for a round trip flight Philadelphia to Barcelona was fantastic. Unfortunately, this was a case of you getting what you pay for. Both my husband and I were very unhappy with the entire experience."
Cons: "Airplanes were very uncomfortable, flight crew was unfriendly (smiles were scarce and you felt you annoyed them if you wanted anything), service took too long (perhaps not enough personnel for number of passengers), plane was extremely warm, food was only fair -- all other international flights I've taken have had much better food and comforts). We had long layover on return flight in Toronto and airport and Air Canada personnel were not very helpful or accommodating. When we asked for a suggestion on where we could go in the airport to kill several hours (eating, drinking, watching TV), were were told by many that the airport is bad and we're given conflicting or poor answers. Intimately the advice given put us having to go thru security and Custims again (even though we already had) and that process was extremely disorganized and time consuming."
Cons: "When boarding the plane in Rome, there was not rhyme or reason. Seats towards the back should have been urged to use the back stairs. Two way traffic down the aisle of a plane does not work with suitcases, backpacks, etc, in tow."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Cons: "TV was frozen, meaning nothing to do for 5 hours, no alternate option. flight was full, no room for overhead baggage. Spent entirely too much money for these conditions."
Pros: "Very easy flight, attendants were helpful and nice. No delays!"
Cons: "My luggage had not being delivered yet. Somebody decided not to located it to my conexion with COPA in Los Angeles. I am wondering if I could have access to my stuff before going back home in Vancouver. My family is waiting here for the gifts that I bought for them. I am feeling really embarrased with this situation."
Cons: "From LA to Toronto & Montreal back to LA, was a 4-6 hr flight where they don't feed you or give you blankets. When I asked why blankets are not available, the crew said, "because that's all what we'll be doing is handing out blanket." The crew should realize that providing comfort for their passengers is a huge part of their service they should provide. This was my first time flying with air canada and I was very disappointed. Air Canada will definitely not be on my top airlines to fly next time."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I did not have to pick up me luggage for my connection flight & I have priority sitting and receiving luggage at NYC"
Cons: "You let too many people on with multiple bags and it is a struggle to get them stored in the overhead compartments."
Pros: "From the comfort of the seats to the movies to the great tasting food, there isn't anything they could have done to make my flight any better. Thank you Air Canada."
Pros: "The airline personnel in Montreal was accommodating when several of us missed our connecting flights, automatically providing a hotel room and food vouchers for each of us."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because of a miscommunication with the refueling truck in Montreal before the flight came to Bradley. Then, we sat almost another hour on the tarmac at Bradley Airport because the flight plan was not approved. This caused me and several travelers (out of a small flight of approx. 20 people) to miss our connections in Montreal. Miscommunication seems to be normal for AirCanada, at least in Montreal (almost missed my connection on the way home, too). I will not fly again with this airline in the foreseeable future."
Pros: "Comfortable plane!"
Cons: "My daughter got destroyed by a cup of coffee a passenger behind her was holding when turbulence struck quiet bad,neither he or the airline apologizes for either."
Pros: "Flight was uneventful--just what I like!"
Cons: "There was nothing that I can think of.."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in bulkhead, large overhead cabin space, friendly staff, lots of water offered"
Cons: "No extra blankets available. Would have preferred more Asian cuisine on HK/Toronto flight. Staff too busy with full economy cabin, so not responsive when pressed call button. Movie and TV selection not as extensive as Cathay, though kids same games much better."
Pros: "staff was polite"
Cons: "I think a "red-eye" should automatically include at least a pillow (whether or not you were in first class) and an attempt to keep the lights off in the cabin. Our carry-on luggage had to be far behind us and on the other side of the plane. If you would board the rear first and have each passenger keep their carry on above their own seat this would eliminate this problem and the congestion in the aisles which occurs because of it."
Pros: "Contacted by AC that flight from Hartford late leaving and only option for connection to Moncton was through Toronto instead of Montreal-agreed to this change"
Cons: "Plane arrived on time in Toronto but unable to approach terminal for 20 minutes since other plane in designated spot. Delay of 10 minutes to disembark once at terminal because of unexplained problem. Once at security gate D line of approx.. 30-40 people at dead standstill for 25 minutes (security issue?) . Missed connecting flight to Moncton because of above. Overnight stay in Toronto with hotel and meals approx. 35..00-400.00 extra cost. AC unwilling to pay for hotel. Lost following day's employment. Very disappointed in AC service in Toronto."
Pros: "I had not paid attention to know this was going to be such a tiny plane - 18 seats! Transborder flight, 1:20 hours, single seats so both window and aisle, two fantastic pilots (no flight attendants) who did everything, young, friendly and in charge, smooth trip, and I was in seat 2 and looking directly ahead seeing the pilots' view! I didn't need snacks or other entertainment. Will not hesitate to take this flight / Air Canada / small planes again."
Pros: "The way the flight attendants helped us."
Cons: "There were empty seats yet we could hardly find space in the overhead to place our carry on luggage.With that amount of passengers space should not be so difficult to get."
Cons: "Staff was very rude especially a flight attendant named Taylor. Made us wait about an hour on the plane to wait for people to clear customs but then no one extra boarded the plane . Air canada rouge I was overall a terrible experience will not fly them again."
Pros: "Great flight. New and comfortable plane with lots of room. Food was good. Reasonable entertainment was provided with lately released movies. Staff was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Internet not free on board. For the price of the ticket on an international flight, internet should be included for free. Also no newspaper available on board."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Outrageous price for short trip zero amenities turbo prop"
Cons: "The seat I sat in felt lumpy. Its also always so loud in the smaller planes, but I knew that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because the inbound aircraft arrived late, but United didn't notify me until I was already at the airport. They would have known about the delay for hours already by that point, so I could have rebooked on a different flight. Instead I had to spend the night by the airport in Hartford or risk missing my connection and being stranded in Chicago."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable.. the service was responsive and friendly!"

Pros: "Nice attendant."
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "What happened to complimentary snacks?!"
Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Cons: "Check in was with a new trainee and she was not sure how to put in our TSA - we got sent around to other people quite a bit. Plane was late and we almost did not make our connection in Dulles"
Pros: "getting to my destination"
Cons: "How does a 700 mi flight take 14hrs to accomplish. Fly United and find out."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."

Cons: "No frills. It wasn't needed but gotta think of something to put here."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seat and the empty seat between myself and the other passenger in my row. Staff were lovely and very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours.... missed my next flight, too dc, then rerouted to Philadelphia,and transferred to another airline, got to Dayton at 5 pm. I haven't had a vacation in four years, this was not the way I wanted to start. This was a trip from hell."
Pros: "Staff at the ticket counter was friendly enough to me personally, although was extremely reactionary to the restless crowd. I am glad that I was able to be rerouted to another destination where I could be driven home within three hours. Good food boxes on the plane (I had the Tapas). Friendly crew onboard."
Cons: "No offer for any sort of compensation for significantly altered travel. Even just a stock email acknowledgement would have been nice. Expensive wi-fi options on the plane, electrical outlets for only half of the plane."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Delays due to staffing issues led to missed connection and 7 hour wait for next available flight."
Pros: "I did not like any part of the trap maybe when they offered us some preferences that was included in the fly that's about it"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed the text message updates said we're not accurate"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled three times before they finally switched us to Delta. We missed an entire 2 days of our vacation that we haven't got reimbursed for. One of the agents that worked for United Airlines put her hands on my friend that I was traveling with and the police got involved. It was an horrible experience and no one was trying to accommodate us for our troubles what's so ever. I will NEVER fly United again. A waste of time and money."
Cons: "No complementary food is provided. Just some mini snacks."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was stuck between two very large men on a flight where there was apparently no air conditioning. I could barely breathe for how hot it was."
Pros: "I could not find anyplace on the United reservation to enter my TSA Pre check number. As a result, even thought I am 80, I had to wait in line and disrobe at Hartford CT airport."

Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Poor service, not pleasant attitude from flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."
Pros: "Short lines, rapid boarding, on time, & courteous agents!!!"
Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."

Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No leg room even for a short person like me!"
Pros: "Fight on time. Minimal turbulence. Effecient flight sttendants"

Cons: "Flight was delayed therefore missed my connection"
Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."
