Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."

Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work (network wouldn't show up)."

Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Way too many useless announcements by the copilot and the lead flight attendant. Keep it short. Don't get back on once you put the mic back. And how about announcing th baggage claim carousel if your going to interrupt as much as you did."
Cons: "We were delayed. Then they boarded us and we left the gate to then sit out in the 108F sun. They knew before we pushed back the wheels up time was extended again."
Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."

Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Cons: "it took 7hours due to storms"
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."
Pros: "i liked the entertainment, the crew were very helpful, the flight took off approximately on time.when"

I was finally able to upgrade at the delta check-in counter for a higher fee than usual (ontop of the perfered seat upgrade I already paid for). I waited 1.5hrs after takeoff before I called staff for a drink. Over 2hrs before they officially started serving main cabin drinks and snacks.

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Nice, professional crew."
Cons: "I have a dog in the plane with me. None of my flights offered to make me board first. It harder to move through the aisle by myself with my pup in her carrier and my personal effect . Some nice passengers helped me when they saw I was struggling but O feel that is the crew's job."

This has happened before with this airline when are reservation are done months in advance. I doubt we will fly American Airlines Again."
Cons: "Took over an hour to get baggage."
Cons: "AA cancel flights recurringly and has no ability to help their customers. Got I flight cancelled yesterday, and was move to another flight later (10:30pm) that supposed to leave ate (3:30pm). After several delays, they started boarding us at 1:00am, but the boarding process so messy and confuse, the plane couldn’t took off before 1:40 by 1 minute and they had to cancel the flight with 200 people inside the plane. An absurd! Flight was rescheduled to today at 10am and obviously took off 1h delayed because AA can't organize simple things to expedite the boarding process."
Pros: "They made a long trip comfortable with an excellent attitude."
Cons: "Our honeymoon started off with American airlines delaying us by 3 hours in Miami causing us to miss our flight to Iceland and now we are stuck in Dallas paying out of pocket for everything because American does not reimburse anything. Just brutal."

Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "I was sitting in an aisle seat, a guy with a backpack hit my forehead. I was massaging my forehead and felt wetness.

Pros: "I survived the flight."
Cons: "Missed connection Uncomfortable Rollercoaster flight"

Pros: "We liked the effiency and politeness of the staff. We enjoyed the movies, the food was better than normal."

Pros: "The flight went very smoothly once we were finally on our way."

Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Could have picked something better to show."
Pros: "Overall, 3 stars. We were late to board, about a half hour. One of the flight attendants seemed to be drunk, really not joking about this. For comfort, it was a typical plane, not much room. There was NO MEALS on the plane.. it was a three hour flight. The airport we flew out of also didn't have restaurants once you went through security. There was free entertainment but since we were out of the US, we couldn't access it we entered the US"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Pros: "food could be better"
Cons: "Delay 1st leg. Had to rebook to later flight. Later flight delayed. Then delayed again due to crew time out. Arrived 4 hours later than originally scheduled. Meaning public transportation could not be used to get into downtown final destination. Made an originally short trip even shorter."
Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful."
Cons: "On the return flight the media equipment did not work."
Pros: "I made it safe to the mainland"
Cons: "We had some Change of plans and we're going to just get off in Phoenix and not take it straight to San Diego, we called American they said no big deal they would ticket our bags to Phoenix, got to the airport and the American Airlines gal stated in no way shape or form could they do that, I tried explaining the whole situation and her response always ended in 'and your bags will be in San Diego'. By the grace of God we were able to cram two checked bags worth of stuff into our carry ons which I still do not know how we did that, and were fine. On the flight we had a decently nice lady and a horrible male. When passing out drinks he seemed almost irritated that we had asked for water and rudely gave it to us which was room temperature. He totally skipped the lady in the row with us and got irritated when she asked for a water as well."
Pros: "The seat cushion had no support. I felt like i was sitting on seat supports"
Cons: "Thicker seat cushion would be more comfortable."

Pros: "new airplane, some juice offered, good entertainment, staff was ok on the return flight (first class)"

Pros: "everything went by fast, a lot of turbulence but the pilot kept us in check the entire time."
Cons: "I never got on that flight because the flight from Montreal to Toronto was delayed so I would have missed the connection. The flight from Montreal was late. I showed up a the airport three times before I got on a plane. Air Canada asked me to check in online but the system didn't work. Because of the storm, Air Canada couldn't even place me on hold so I had to go to the airport earlier in the day. When I complained about not being able to check in online, they asked gaslighted me and kept repeating that their system was "a great product" and that there was no way it didn't work. One person finally told me that it was because I had a pet in cabin. I could have saved a lot of frustration if someone had told me that. I also think that for a flight that left late and caused me to change plans and leave on a different day with another delayed flight because of the luggage conveyor belt that didn't work - which paralyzed an entire airport - they could have offered us a complimentary meal on the plane."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, leg room adequate. Crew helpful."
Cons: "The young child that screamed for the first two hours of the flight. The man in the seat behind me that coughed loudly constantly for 5.5 hours. No sleep on an overnight flight. Gluten free options not available for me and my wife. We tried to book these before the flight but we're not allowed access for this. Flight entertainment system froze and had to be reset, resulting in blank screens for the first 30 minutes or so."
Cons: "We flew from Toronto to Calgary, the original flight was suppose to be from Toronto to S.F. we were told that the original flight had been cancelled because the flights did not match up, the one coming from Aruba got in to late to make the connecting flight it was a nightmare i will probably never fly Air Canada again nor will i recommend to others"

Pros: "The courtesy of the attendants. Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The leg room."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about the flight except that it was a smooth one."
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed by four hours. The food was bad."
Cons: "We were in Toronto for an entire week without our bag and Air Canada showed no concern at all for our well being. I travelled with my one year old son, I needed supplies for him and Air Canada gave me dead end numbers to call, websites that didn't work and even hung up on us when we were trying to find out about our bags. They treated us terribly. I will never fly them again."

Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Pros: "Short flight - no issues"
Pros: "The Canadian airports are much nicer than the US airports. Things seem to flow better. They are cleaner and have more services than the US. They also have less people. Air Canada is a very good airline. They had schedule issues like any airline, but they handled them well and communicated them well. The staff was friendly and helpful. The meals were very good. Our trip was long, but that was due to our choices. I was very satisfied and highly recommend Air Canada."
Cons: "All the planes are full. Seating is cramped unless you pay a lot for an upgrade. We found connection times tight in Montreal. We had to jog each time to make our connection."

Cons: "touch screen was very finicky"
Pros: "Zoned boarding"
Cons: "Food limited and must be purchased. Entertainment must have downloaded app."

Cons: "The staff at check in were not overly helpful. We were running late and possibly going to miss our flight and they did not seem willing to help us out at all."
Pros: "I really liked that there were free in-flight movies/tv and that everyone had their own screens so you could choose what to watch or you could have a map pulled up on the screen to show you how far you have travelled and how much further you have left to travel."
Cons: "There wasn't any food offered, no free peanuts/pretzels or food to buy. It wasn't the end of the world or anything but it seemed kind of odd to me. It's also a good thing that I had a movie option because if I didn't then my entire flight would have been filled with the sounds of some children's show that was blasting from a parents laptop and could be heard throughout the entire plane. I was really surprised that none of the flight attendants either asked them to turn it down to a reasonable volume or requested that they give the child headphones."
Cons: "the gate changed FOUR times and passengers were never notified as there were no crew at the gate. The flight was delayed by two hours. there was no in-flight entertainment on board as it wasn't working. upon landing, we were forced to stay in the plane for an extra 30 minutes because the gate and crew were not ready. I was NOT impressed by this flight and am very upset with how things went. I expected better of AC and will not be flying again with them."
Pros: "we made it"
Cons: "small planes are noisy and cramped"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 2 hours, seats very tight"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. The in flight movies are good."
Cons: "Boarding was a little hectic and unorganized. And although my luggage made it to my second flight, my friends luggage was left in Toronto. Now we are in Amsterdam and she has no clothes. My head phone jack was also broken and could barely be used."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great."
Cons: "No snacks."
Pros: "The staff offered a hotel and voucher for for 24hr delay but I was still unable to make up for lost travel time."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight to Dublin because the plane was delayed nearly three hours. I received a new ticket for 24hours after my oringial connecting flight. When I arrived in Dublin my baggage had been placed on the wrong flight."
Cons: "First of all, the flight schedule was changed on June 3rd, after the passenger had already left the country for her trip. The flight leaving Milan was moved up BY 6 HOURS!!! When we called the 3rd party used to book the flight, they were not helpful in trying to find a more reasonable option that was similar to the original itinerary booked. So, the passenger got to the airport at 4 am for their 6 am flight and was not able to check in because the 3rd party agency had not confirmed her seats on that flight. No one was available from Air Canada to assist with this issue. The passenger had to work with the Milan Airport information desk and they were able to find out that the 3rd party had never cancelled her seats on the original itinerary so her seats could not be confirmed on the 6 am flight they had "rebooked" her on. As there were no airline personnel to assist, by the time this was found out, the passenger had missed her flight. The person at the Milan airport information desk had to help find a different flight for her to travel on a different airline. This was the WORST experience I have ever encountered!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment was great, and actual seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The canbin temperature was kept far too low; unless you are forced to buy some over priced blanket"
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "I missed my proceeding flight after Air Canada 810 got delayed by 5 hours. Although I had travel insurance tied to air canada flight, neither air canada, nor the travel isurance company alliannzzz did anything"
Pros: "I liked my check-in as the agent was friendly and knew what she was doing. It really makes your trip enjoyable when they smile and talk to you"
Cons: "I didn't like that we weren't offered the usual snack of pretzels. We got nothing on a five hour flight."
Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"

Pros: "Loved that I was in the single seat and it was a quick flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a chaos, so many passengers didn’t know which line they should follow, everything was unbearably slow"
Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."

Cons: "Small chair"
Pros: "Flight left right on time and arrived to the destination early - which was great because i had an extremely short layover"

Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "Boarding was organized properly by line per zone"
Cons: "Aircraft was old, and dirty, seats were old and cramped, and did not recline, bathroom was smelly and dreary. This is typical domestic flight equipment on an international flight. As usual, mediocre to pathetic in comparison with European and mideast airlines."
Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"

Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "The snack"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."
Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "I liked how we were kepted informed of the delay."
Cons: "The delay but weather was bad so it is understandable."
Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and staff was friendly. I was in an emergency row so I had a little extra leg room in my middle seat. Also had wifi on this flight."
Cons: "Snacks need to be updated. I prefer the good old fashion pretzels, so maybe providing an option would be better."
Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."
Pros: "Plane was new and nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed 6 hours with inadequate information and no compensation plan, no customer service in the LAS airport"
