Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Loved the food and drink service."
Cons: "Did not like how far back the seat in front of me went. Causes a cramped ride."

Cons: "The people sitting beside me was very loud and they didn’t stop talking the whole time."

Pros: "Flight was ontime"
Cons: "The boarding process ar newark is terrible, and the lady that was at the boarding gate was extremely unpolite with no service attitude at all - i have never seen before such a behavior"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seat, good food, and food entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed 20 minutes out of Denver, and when I arrived at my connecting city in Munich I was immediately told I would not make my connecting flight due to customs lines and to reschedule. I walked 5 minutes to customs, no lines, walked another 5 minutes to my gate, and easily made the connection."

Pros: "Cabin crew and service"
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late and we missed our condo in Chicago and had to rebook and spend the night"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, food was bad"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The rolls that came with the food. Too hard - not fresh enough. No big deal, just saying...."

Pros: "Nice Biz Class with typical empty center seat. Pleasant FAs."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "After usual perfect service from Luftahansa, I noticed that my lagguage was opened and destroyed."

Pros: "Crew was very nice, easy boarding"
Cons: "Horrible food, very small, cramped seats. The cabin was extremely cold, even with my jacket on."

Cons: "When I missed the flight in Brussels I had no options re: changing my ticket as there was no ticket sales counter at the airport. Had to go to the travel agent and book a flight on another carrier."

Cons: "Unable to make the flight due to connecting flight being cancelled."

Cons: "The passenger behaind, was a tall guy. All the 7 hours flight i had to fight him to allow me puting my back sest dowm on his hearting legs. Why didnt hay extra and seat where it fits his size?"

Pros: "Lufthansa pilots are some of the best in the industry and the flight was extremely smooth from take off to landing. There were bouts of turbulence but the pilot immediately changed altitudes to steer away from it. Flying on the 748 is a pleasure and it's a shame these great planes will eventually all be phased out in favor of more fuel efficient 787s and their Airbus counterparts."
Cons: "Having to pay 86€ for a second suitcase that weighed just 15kg. In JFK they didn't charge me but Germans always go by the book. I think for the price of the ticket and lower gasoline costs compared to the height of the recession this is simply outrageous. Next time I'll pay for economy plus. You get a seat that is wider than economy but a little bit less legroom than a business one and the second baggage is included. The meal was nothing special but the friendliness of the flight attendants made up for it."

Pros: "Good flight crew, professional, glad I arrived on time"

Cons: "Food was completely tasteless - of very questionable quality"

Pros: "Everything was great!!!"
Cons: "The crew attitude!!! Instead of saying "excuse me" she said "can I pass" she was rude"

Cons: "nothing."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."

Cons: "Delay for 45 minutes; unfortunately, it's becoming a trend at Lufthansa"

Pros: "the crew are exellent"

Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."

Pros: "Clean plane, decent entertaiment"
Cons: "the food was pretty much the same that we had during our previous flight from Moscow to Frankfurt and of the same mediocre quality. the plane was freezing cold - this was the first time in my frequent travels that i had to use the provided blanket. My girlfriend used 2 of them. When I called the flight attendant for the extra blanket using the bottom nobody showed up - I had to stop an attendant passing by to get the extra blanket."

Pros: "Flight on time, excellent crew and flight attendant, clean airplane, good entertainment,"

Pros: "Friendliness of crew, punctuality of flight; complimentary plum cake; good selection of drinks. We were able to check in and choose seats online."

Pros: "Boarding and crew were great."
Cons: "That "seats" did not have USB connection (for phone charging)."

Cons: "In flight announcements not loud enough and did not come over the headphones."

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above And landing was extremely hard.!"

Pros: "Lufthansa gets kudos for excellent food and abroad variety of entertainment options. Also, if you check in online soon after the site opens (about 23 hours before takeoff), you can select your seat from among those available at no extra cost, which is nice."
Cons: "The crew announcements in English were hard to hear or understand on this particular flight, although I did not have that problem on the outgoing flight (also Lufthansa."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly joyful, happy and patient. Always a smile throughout the long flight. Very willing to help. Nice new planes, liked the lower galley for restrooms. Very much appreciated the warm face towels at beginning of flight...would really appreciate a warm face towel at end of flight too. Good amount of water available throughout the flight, sometimes airlines are way too limited on amount of water they make available. Appreciated the wine and aperitif as well. Excellent flight! Would try to fly Lufthansa again!"

Pros: "Attendents were very warm and friendly. The pillow, blanket, water and headphones at the seat were a nice welcome."

Cons: "Blankets needed to be washed"

Pros: "On time and smooth"

Pros: "Latest movies few included"
Cons: "The space is so small. For 11plus hours my body could not move. I never had knee problem but they were so sore. My feet and body got extremely tight mid way in the flight. This is my first and last flight in your airlines."

Pros: "fllight attandants were very pleasant"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "My frequent flyer number did not show up"

Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."

Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."

Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."

Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"

Cons: "The plane is so old..,"

Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "Lost luggage"

Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."

Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"

Pros: "Good beverage service."
Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."

Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"

Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."

Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."

Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."

Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"

Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"

Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"

Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."

Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."

Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"

Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"

Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."

Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."

Cons: "What happened to physical distancing? Flight was packed full."

Cons: "Lost my baggage even though I actually watched them transport it to the airplane from the airplane window. Brutal."

Cons: "Uncomfortable and small space for the travelers"

Pros: "Got the seats I wanted, movies were good. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "In Montreal they took my carry on bag stating it was too big, I have traveled with it many many times and it always fits except the tiny planes, this was a 787. When I got on the plane many people had larger bags then mine and it was the last bag on the carousel at the other end."

Cons: "A better snack option would be appreciated"

Pros: "Really disappoint experience with air Canada when we were back from San Juan. We paid $40 for preselected seats but end up with none of them secured. I had to separated from my wife in different row and crowded into a middle seat that is I want totally avoided. Why we paid for such a bad experience?"

Pros: "Crew were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. Great entertainment system."
Cons: "The food is terrible, overcooked watery beefless beef dishes. Better ti brng your own food."

Cons: "Will never book a trip with you"

Pros: "Our daughter's first time traveling alone. She slept most of the time and she said it was fine and comfortable enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and then once up in the air, passengers were told the food cart didn't make it the 6 hour flight so no food or snacks for the entire flight from Montreal to San Francisco."

Pros: "Well located at LGA (NYC) with it own section of gate doors that is just Air Canada. Multiple flights leaving where EXTREMELY delayed, the staff put on their thinking caps, they started putting people on standby so most customers leave on an earlier flight! I was located in an extra room chair (free) due to this adjustment of delayed flights and was a great experience."
Cons: "It’s the usual BS that you get at airports....TSA is always insane but honestly it was better than I thought l."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "My seat was wet and i had to wait quite a while for it to be rectified. I asked to sit on a crew seat at the back of the plane and was told that i would break it. I found this rather disgusting . Seating plan is very crammed like sardines"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Air Canada was a disaster on our vacation. Delays, re bookings, cancellations. Every thing was told to us as an excuse from the weather, flight attendant was running late, not staffed enough, need supplies on the plane, someone died, planes needing de-icing, planes too small, planes overbooked... you name it they said it! New York to Toronto, Toronto to Edmonton and return. Not one single flight was on time! We got put in a Hotel - only nice part of the trip - got Vouchers for $15 each - such a low amount!!! Didn't get our luggage with our clothes and amenities to use at the hotel - had to sleep in our plane clothes. Spend extra money we didn't have... it was awful! We will be staying away from Air Canada for awhile!"

Pros: "The ease of boarding the plane and the crew wa attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Food was not great, but was edible. Leg room was not as good on the long flight as the shorter connector."

Pros: "Our seats were much better on this flight than our longer leg. I was much more comfortable. The entertainment was just as good as our international flight."

Pros: "The food quality improved on the return flight from Seoul to Vancouver. We sat net to an exit door on the reurn flight which provided extra leg room"
Cons: "My wife and I flew 7 legs on Air Canada. Six out of the 7 were delayed 40 minutes or more. The food on the trip from Vancouver to Seoul wasn't very good either."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and Crew was friendly. The Captain was giving updates when appropriate and even was friendly when the passengers were disembarking. It seems like he really enjoys his job and that made my trip nice. I liked getting the blanket and pillow on every seat. It was very nice not to have to search for them."
Cons: "Didn't have the Air Canada app so couldn't access WiFi to download app for the entertainment. It might be helpful if the airline would tell you ahead of time so you are prepared. Also, no real description of food offerings. Would be helpful if there was a description beside chicken or vegetarian."

Cons: "my flights were delayed, crew could not help me find a hotel, instead had to sleep at the airport, plus my luggage was lost and still no idea what is going on. Had to miss work due to my flight being delayed, was supposed to fly from montreal at 4:30pm to Toronto, then catch my flight to Los Angeles, flight was missed due to weather. got to Toronto and missed my flight, the line to get help was absolutely ridiculous, stood there for 3 hrs along with other travelers. They booked me a flight from Toronto to Calgary but it was for the next day at 410pm on august 1st!!! I had to sleep on the airport floor and spend my whole day there instead of being home with my family I honestly would love a refund..."

Pros: "I love the excellent friendly service!"

Cons: "They sold my mom's tix. Didn't let her board. She had to buy new ticket!!! For 1200!!! Terrible experience"

Cons: "It was a much older plane than I'm used to, and a really long flight to have no entertainment options. Seats were more cramped than normal, and even numbered weird, it took me some time to find my seat. Overhead storage was very difficult to get into."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, service was quick."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, very tight space since plane was so small. I'd never flown international before so when they handed out the immigration forms without any explanation, I was very confused."

Pros: "The staff was helpful and courteous. I liked the tv selection especially the Canadian content."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of electric problems. The complimentary snacks aren't as good as other airlines."

Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours, however the boarding was efficient and the crew were very friendly."

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."

Cons: "delay upon delay due to maintenance then delayed again because the flight crew left due to the delays and a new crew had to be found. 1.5 hours of delay in total but we were only told a few minutes at a time so aggravating"

Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The flight was outrageously hot the entire time. There were no A/C vents above the seats, probably because the dated plane may have been built before temperature control. It was honestly almost unbearable."

Pros: "unfortunately, not much."
Cons: "The check in was a mess. Ticket counters were scattered, three flights going to Canada and no one was directing the lines. People in line were shouting at each other and getting angry. Took two hours to check in.....had to run to catch flight and I was there two hours before boarding time."

Pros: "Liked having the seat next to me empty on the fight back."
Cons: "I did not like paying for picking my seat. Back in the day if you booked your ticket you got to pick your seat, like first come first serve, without paying for it. Now, if you want to guarantee a window seat you have to pay for it. I only did it because my mom advised me to. And I did so because I always listen and respect her advice. It made for a good experience because i like looking out the window. However,I did not appreciate having to pay for it. I believe that since we incur a plethora of microcharges for everything on the plane ticket that it should include picking your own seat without a separate charge. It is likely a matter of time before we will be charged extra for salt on our pretzels."

Cons: "Old planes,limited food"

Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "Meal -"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "Worst food ever on any airline I've been on"

Cons: "Missed the flight due tot eh first delay then the next one got delayed too"

Pros: "Air Canada is a wonderful airline for the price!! Seats are comfy staff is excellent. Food is decent."
Cons: "Food wasn't great but what do you expect it's on a airplane."

Cons: "Delayed Sat on a parked plane for 4 hours in PHL before taking off Missed Connection in Toronto No compensation/help with food or hotel"

Pros: "India ( flight attendant) provided very poor customer service during flight. I have been a nurse for 24 years and i simply asked for a cool cloth for a gentleman sitting next to me that was feeling ill and very pale. India returned with 5 emesis bags and no cloth and never once came back to check on the gentleman!!! I really wish it was not a full flight because i would have advised him to puke all over everything. How hard was it to provide a cool cloth?? Really? I know first class has wash cloths and that was an easy request. And the fact that she never came back to see if we needed anything or to tell us she did not have a cloth for him. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I will think twice about flying Air Canada again. Thank god for good citizeans willing to help strangers in a time of need."
Cons: "Poor ccustomer service by flight attendants and no follow up on ill passengers."

Pros: "The food was really good. I was kind of shocked but each meal or snack I had was delicious and I especially liked that I could pre order special food according to my diet. The staff was friendly and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "the music channels were lame. I was bummed we did not have wifi in the plane and so I couldn't listen to good music the whole flight"

Pros: "efficient boarding, attentive crew"

Pros: "The staff were apologetic and understanding. Everyone felt bad for the staff because they had nothing to do with the nightmare."
Cons: "Not only that I missed my connecting flight, when I was actually able to board 24 hours later the boarding experience was a complete nightmare with long lines and completely disorganized boarding system. I am curious to see whether I will get compensated for the missed hotel accommodations in Amsterdam. Keeping my fingers crossed. All to say, my last trip with Air Canada."

Pros: "The food and entertainment were good."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine- comfortable with nice amenities and a professional staff."
Cons: "My first flight was late then cancelled, then replaced by another. That one was late too and made me miss my connecting flight. I had to spend the night stuck in the Toronto airport with nowhere to safely sleep and my late arrival meant the entire first day of my long planned vacation was ruined. I was supposed to get to my destination around 10 in the morning, instead I arrived around one in the morning the next day. All I got from Air Canada for this trouble was a $10 meal voucher for airport restaurants that cost $25 and were closed during my stay."

Pros: "I like that they let us board the flight because we had some issues getting to the airport."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like."

Pros: "Quick non stop flight from Vancouver to Calgary. Has to change my flight last minute and wasn't charged for doing that. That on its own was a relief and great surprise."
Cons: "The plan was hot - no AC it was hard to sit through. The snacks on Air Canada flights get worse and worse every year. Pay more get less."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Flight got delayed"

Pros: "Crew was respectable and the food was good."
Cons: "The policy of having to check-in in order to have a seat is ridiculous and borderline racketeering. If one pays for a flight, they should get the ticket they paid for. It should not be based on whether they check-in because Air Canada wants to make more money on selling their seat because they didn't check-in. This is unacceptable. Since it's a company policy, my wife and I would enforce our own policy in response: we will choose not to fly Air Canada again."

Pros: "Great flight crew, amazing plane, nice food and drinks, entertainment system, and pillows + blankets offered! A+"

Pros: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Passenger seats are way to close, if the person in front of you leans their seat back, forget about using your tray. I know I haven't flown in over a year, but did all airlines stop passing out snacks. Make sure you bring your credit card in case you get hungry. They charge you for everything except basic drinks and make sure you use the latrine prior to boarding because they are too busy swiping the credit cards, they block the isle to get access to it."

Pros: "It was fine. No frills, but that is what I expected. We arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "Had a delay Getty to the gate, but I think that was an issue from Charlotte airport."

Pros: "Everything about the flight was wonderful. Great plane, food, staff, entertainment."
Cons: "The layover at Toronto. There were several areas of the airport that we had to go through like customs, immigration for the US and to then find the plane to the US. I had two children with me too. I had staff in the airport either not be willing to point directions for me; rather chat with their fellow employees; or give me wrong directions, then change their mind. It made it more stressful and uncomfortable."
