4 hour delay that caused me to miss my connection. Couldn't get changed to another flight until arrival. Instructions for checking in for the first flight were wrong. There is no Air Canada counter in OKC to check in with.
All good for this segment
Flight crew was very helpful.
The plane waited for us to take us
Cons: "Food had little taste. Movies were not that current and selection was sparse"
Cons: "Mechanical Maintenance"
Pros: "Cabin crew were terrific!"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay of our flight. And the entertainment systems seems to be getting old. What I mean is that it is by todays standard very very slow to switch between menus etc. And in some cases did not display all the menu content."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "plane was too small and there was 1.5 hour delay departing"
Pros: "Not much. Crew was good but that is about it."
Cons: "Tight spaces packed in like sardines. FAA seriously needs to look at how these airlines pack us into these seats. Can barely sit in the set, no room to stretch legs, tray table hits my stomach, and I don't even have a big belly. When the guy in front reclines, cannot even get out of my seat. Chaotic boarding process without any order or instructions or announcements, poor food and entertainment."
Pros: "The full experience"
Pros: "Good boarding.Easy check in."
Cons: "Food! Not appealing. Did not eat more than a few bites."
Pros: "1 stewardess was great"
Cons: "Flights were delayed. Did not check boarding passes which was scary."
Pros: "The flight crew were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "I was forced to miss my second flight because the first airplane malfunctioned"
Cons: "Rather than notify the passengers that our flight would be delayed prior to our arrival at the airport, we waited at the gate for several hours."
Cons: "Our direct flight to Montreal was canceled due to mechanical issues. The rebooking process was discombobulating and we ended up arriving at our destination after the rerouting that was stressful and ensured that we lost a whole day of our vacation time. Our flight back the entertainment system in our seats did not function."
Pros: "put us up in decent hotels gave food vouchers the crew didn't do anything to make it horrible Large selection of movies/tv on board comfiest seats out of all the major airlines I've flown"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed bc of mechanical problems, and then eventually cancelled. They rebooked everyone on new flights, but it took an extra stop in Toronto before getting us to Montreal. Once it was rebooked for the morning, it took off a little late. Plus the pretzels they gave us were stale. This was the first of two flights I took this trip that had mechanical issues, so they obviously need to fix their planes better or get new ones, because two Air Canada flights in one day that have mechanical problems leaves me worried that the planes aren't in optimal condition. It took me over 24 hours to get from Tucson, AZ to Montreal, Canada when normal travel takes less than 8 hours including layovers."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat"
Cons: "The plane sat on the runway in Denver for over an hour because they couldn't figure out their furling situation. Many people nearly missed connections because of this. The crew never let us get up to go to the bathroom on an international flight because of some small turbulence."
Pros: "Nothing! Unpleasant unhelpful crew at gate, no better onboard, absolutely moist cramped seating ever! Disorganized and late- boarding, departing, waited to disembark at arrival, 25 min before first bag off baggage......dreadful no one cares"
Cons: "Thank you for choosing Air Canada- smiles and goodbyes- where's all that Before you leave? They treat you like problem cattle to be dealt with, you're anonymous and valueless until you leave then they look at you and thank you?! Missing sincerity And service!"
Pros: "Onboard attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "No apology for lateness, flight boarded late, took off 40 min late, arrived 35 minutes late but we sat at gate waiting for someone to open it ?!, then another 15 min before bags started to unload Ridiculous but indicative of airlines You are not their valued guest or even their customer, you are a problem that needs to be solved and are consequently met with preloaded annoyance and a readiness to dismiss, placate at the best of times but definitely not please, impress, sympathize or satisfy. There is no evidence that it's even in their lexicon- not a part of their recruitment or selection process or training, ever! They're main focus and only positivity is saved for themselves. There may be a long line of concerned and anxious travelers but their priority is getting coffees for the battle ahead! They break their focused indifference only for each other and enthusiastically leave their post to satisfy each other's needs and attention. This has got to change! Why do we put up with such awful service for which we are the paying customer? Why are we, their customers, not valued? This airline makes record profits, provides less, charges for everything and increasingly delivers bad service, sometimes offensively bad! It doesn't cost more to hire a customer centric pleasant person, or incorporate guest experience into training or at the very least be friendly and smile! What if an airline just did that?! They'd differentiate themselves and develop a positive customer centered culture. Don't we deserve that, at the very least?!"
Cons: "Crew wasn't helpful and attentive, boarding staff in Toronto were blatantly rude to me, I watched as my luggage got handled aggressively, the plane was dirty with old food crumbs and such, my flight to Windsor got cancelled and accomadations were not met sufficiently."
Cons: "Rouge legroom has gotten to the point of being dismal. The seats are thin and uncomfortable - don't even try reclining though, or you'll be in the face of the person behind you. I buy flight passes which are good on Air Canada as well but Air Canada has taken away all the non- Rouge flights and I am left with no choice. On a 5pm flight out of Toronto, all the hot food choices were gone by the time they were 8 rows into food and beverage service. I'm seriously thinking of moving my loyalty status to West Jet. If only they had flight passes."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Personal entertainment is very good and crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit chaotic with the carry on bags. I am tall, so economy seats are always uncomfortable."
Cons: "The business class layout on the Boeing 787 was confusing. The seat was narrow and uncomfortable for my 250lb frame and 6 foot 2inch height. There was now head rest for my neck. The air circulation in the center of the aircraft was poor and too hot while my wife across the aisle had good circulation and temperature. The leg room was inadequate as well. Is this Boeing 787 specific? The selections on the movie list were too small."
Pros: "Comfortable, nice new plane. As best as you can expect for a long flight in a small space."
Cons: "The dinner wrap was not great. The tea was undrinkable. Delay due to de-icing."
Pros: "The flight was perfect. Stress free. I will definitely get it again."
Pros: "air canada quickly changed me to another flight when mine was delayed but I had to ask for that, they did not offer."
Cons: "delay was long and I wasn't offered a switch to another flight. had to ask myself for it."
Cons: "There was no information for the new rules of eTA and I've lost my flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto to my friends baby's baptism. Shame!"
Pros: "I like that Air Canada provides entertainment and its flight attendants are really good."
Cons: "I rarely fly these partner airlines without experiencing major delays, and the delays are always announced after I have cleared security, forcing me to spend hours at the airport. The claims of "weather" are specious: they don't fly enough planes and they don't properly maintain the planes they do fly."
Pros: "Online booking,boardong pass, alerts"
Pros: "Flights were on time and all flight staff very nice and courteous. Planes were clean."
Cons: "On rerun fights had delays leaving. The flight from Toronto to Columbus did not have a bathroom to use Had used trash in the seat pockets on all flights. On the flight from Toronto was sitting by emergency exit door and flight attendant said to read the instructions located I seat pocket but there were none ."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Couldn't use in flight entertainment, only half a soda was given"
Cons: "Customer service flight rebooking"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. had to spend night in Vancouver next day flight delayed had run fast to catch connecting flight to Deer Lake. Appalling that you guys are so useless with a flight on a major route such as Vancouver to Toronto. Will fly West Jet next time."
Cons: "No monitoring of travel route"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food is awful and the seats are the most uncomfortable I have ever encountered!"
Pros: "An Air Canada rep over the phone"
Cons: "Gate agent, zero entertainment (and no warning that we should download an app inside airport), poor food, flight attendant wouldn't bring coffee to us (made us go to the back)"
Pros: "Upgrade to premium economy with more legroom. Free movies. Good movie selection. Free checked luggage!"
Cons: "Check-in process at Denver counter rather slow. Gate information at Denver very confusing due to changes and lateness in displaying/announcing information."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment option."
Cons: "Wish there were more choices for new movies."
Cons: "i booked a flight through kayak going from denver to milan. i showed up at the airport in denver to fly out yeserday only to find out that i was going to frankfurt germany. i am now in munich germany and never made it to milan. i was one of many people i met on the flight that also booked with air canada thinking they were headed to milan. air canada kept trying to put the blame off to my booking company. i don't know who to be ticked off at. please advise."
Pros: "Great crew. Nice airline."
Cons: "Both flights were over 30 minutes late. Otherwise they were just fine."
Pros: "Better plane than previous"
Cons: "Had to be rerouted to Calgary because I missed my connection"
Cons: "The flight attendants on this flight did NOT do their job. If they are there to ensure a safe environment for the people on board, they completely missed the boat. I was in row 45. Two families were on board with their 4 very young children. For the entire 8 hour flight, 3 of these children disrupted the entire section of the plane. They continuously played in the aisles, stood in the seats, kept their seat belts unbuckled, threw objects, and one blasted his iPad at maximum volume. When I asked one flight attendant to ask the family to get the child to lower the volume on his iPad (it was 4am; people were either using their ear buds, or had their screens turned off), they complied with the request for 30 minutes, then resumed at full throttle. I can honestly say, it was one of the worst flights I have ever experienced in 57 years."
Pros: "There was entertainment on board although it was very limited. All of the crew were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "delayed due to computer malfunction, food awful, missed my connection, had to wait for 6 hours"
Pros: "Everything was well organized and we were able to depart sooner than scheduled."
Cons: "There were some items on the menu that were not actually available."
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Cons: "Clear checkin needs to have better coordination with TSA agents."
Pros: "efficient, punctual"
Pros: "Great crew. Excellent service."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable. Could be more softer."
Pros: "The crew was great and the landing into Denver was very smooth."
Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No tv in seats"
Pros: "The people were nice and helpful. And the aircraft did not feel cramped. I again did not use the entertainment or anything like that."
Pros: "Free WiFi with movies"
Pros: "Smooth landing!"
Cons: "Late 30”"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment depended on the Wi-Fi working. It did not work the whole flight."
Pros: "The app promoted me to check in on my phone and would not allow me to check in. So I assumed the time on the ticket would be my boarding time. I was late for my flight."
Cons: "Had to wait on wheel chair upon arrival"
Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"

Cons: "The air did not work on this plane and it was hot and uncomfortable! Usually once you take off the plane cools down. We sat on runway for 15 minutes due to weather(which the airline cannot control). However once we took off the air still did not work and the plane was uncomfortably warm with little air movement."
Pros: "There was plenty of space on the plane even tho it was completely full"
Cons: "Did' agree with decision of Ua air to include unannounced stop at Rapid City to drop off crew as it was not a part of my scheduling ticket. A bit confusing at the gate w/ looking for flight to Fargo. Had to ask other passengers at gate what was going on."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "Nice employees."
Cons: "Mechanical delay in fargo caused me to miss my connecting flight to Eugene by 5 minutes. Got to Denver airport asked the gate guy to call my connecting flight gate to see if they could hold the door for me, he said you got 10 mins go. I ran 30 gates and the door just closed and missed my flight. I am 25 weeks preg so my running time is slower then normal. Then they rebooked me on a flight that had an additional connect and arrived 4 hours later then expected. By the time I got to my new flight gate- it was delayed so would miss my next connecting flight. Long story short it's 3 hours past when I was suppose to leave and settled for s flight to PDX tonight getting in at midnight. My friend From eugue is picking me up in Portland tomorrow. It has been an unsuccessful flight. Almost cancelled and went home......"

We had to delay boarding to wait for her. 15 minutes. then it took longer to wait for gate check -- green tag bag - than if I had checked the bag. when we finally got the gate check bags and headed through customs the checked bags were all on the carousel. And I have Nexus. So Customs was 3 minutes. NOT a good process. Figure it out YYC international terminal!!!"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite"
Cons: "Anything but water was for extra. We weren't even offered a small snack for the price of the flight. My flight was changed three times and it was very cramped.

Pros: "Good flight overall would book again"
Pros: "On time, good service"
Cons: "Power outlets worn out and won't hold a plug so they are unusable"

Pros: "We were upgraded to first class and we made the flight, though we had to run."
Cons: "Running for the flight because the gate was at the end."
Pros: "Our flight attendant Lei was absolutely fantastic on this flight. After having to run nearly a mile through the Denver airport to catch the connection to Helena after a delay in DSM, I was very warmly greeted by Lei. She regularly checked to see how I was doing through the flight and made sure I was well hydrated. She was a highlight of the entire trip!"

Pros: "I liked the computer screen on the seats in front of us."
Cons: "The select button would not work after it took my card. Tried it several times. The other thing is I was given 50 dollar Egoft card from United but my husband he was with me they said no proof he was there, we are not planning on flying United Airlines."
