Pros: "It’s hard to say what was good, because everything was sub-par. I would say I liked nothing, except that it got me to where I needed to go. Would I pay for this again? Economy, maybe. Business? No way."
Cons: "Everything. I was flying business so the standard must be higher. Specifically? Bathrooms. Replace eather-worn chairs. Leather retains heat making the whole chair hot. As someone who finds everything cold, this was unbelievable; flight crew (rude & bossy, not international standard); seat positioning (your seat mate has to climb over you); meal (feels like an economy meal put on silverware); the pilot! did a hard brake on the runway, sending loose items flying; I really have nothing positive to say about Royal Jordanian, except that I would be happy to avoid them again."

Pros: "Great crew, very comfortable plane. Everything was on time."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not vegetarian as it contained fish. O'Hare was under construction and signage from the domestic terminal to international terminal was poor."

Pros: "Crew was super friendly and seat was comfortabke"
Cons: "flight delayed. final destination arrival was 9 hours after expected. no accomodation was given (i stayed in the airport for 9 hours and needed to sleep there)"
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Cons: "Bad quality meal, worn out plane, entertainment system is broken and the crew just reset it once and didn't help and they didn't do anything about it. The movies are ridiculously old. Asked for exit seat and they said for that I have to pay $80 more. I asked for water, they said they will bring it andbthey never did."

Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable for an economy ticket. The food was relatively good compared to usual flight meals."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no official status update, the gate even kept saying “Last call” when there was clearly no plane. No official boarding time was provided when the plane showed up, so I had to wait at the gate rather than taking a stroll through the airport. It ended up taking more than the “5 minutes” they kept stating every 5 minutes."

Cons: "Audio/Video system very outdated. Sound had background so was unable to watch movie. Temp in plane was too warm. Plane interior was beat up."
Cons: "Overall, food, appearance, cleanness of the flight and the toilet, no entertainment, comfort, size of the cabin and the seats, communication from the cabin crew and delay without apologizing or telling us the passengers what was the issue, it was one of the poorest flight I have ever used."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Afrithng nice"
Cons: "That alcohol saeling"
Pros: "I didn't have a boarding pass for Royal Jordanian as it was a connecting flight and the UIA groundstaff refused to print one for me when I checked in. Royal Jordanian was very accomodating and sent someone down to the terminal to help me. The food was tasty and fresh as well."
Cons: "I found used chewing gum in the magazine pouch in front of me which was pretty disgusting. The notice boards said the plane was boarding so I rushed from the lounge to the gate and they hadn't actually opened it yet (and didn't for the next ten minutes). Small things, but stopped me from giving an EXCELLENT rating."
Cons: "The toilet."
Pros: "The service was good and the seats were a good size for economy. Good selection of in flight movies as well."

Cons: "Could hardly hear movies on seatback entertainment system-tried both own and their headphones but finally gave up. Also, not a fan of the window shade that only dims-no real shade-light still comes in. Food is not good and drink choices are poor."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Flight was on time Schedule of meals- close to departind and landing"
Cons: "Poor VOD. During a 90 minutes movie, about every 5-10 minutes the movie stopped and I needed to reload the film"
Cons: "Everything needed to have been better, especially communication. I wasn't informed flight time changed, then wasn't informed UK rules wouldn't allow me to fly to USA via London until I gotvyo airport. Was rerouted on another airline and won't get home until 48 hours than originally scheduled. And not even a luncheon voucher less yet a hotel room for my overnight transit stay on new flight."
Pros: "Crew is very attentive and working hard during trying times."
Cons: "My chairs screen in particular was very difficult to use because the touch screen was not working 90% of the time."
Pros: "I have no time for you sorry"
Pros: "The entertainkeb5 was"
Cons: "As someone who is 6 feet tall, I was ridiculously uncomfortable the entire flight. My knees were pressed against the seat in front of me, and when the woman in front of me reclined, I couldn't even unfold the tray due to a lack of space. I was very unhappy,"
Cons: "Very cramped business set with no place for storage. Comfort is good though"
Cons: "The cabin crew was quite stuck up and unfriendly"
Pros: "Everything was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing except the rude passagers. But that is out of the hands of the airline.."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Food, chicken option was horrible"
Pros: "The entertainment options are good, the food is good and the aircraft was clean with plenty of plugs for mobile devices."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. Also other than checking boarding passes airline staff don’t help people find their seats or get settled."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the food decent. I liked the selection of movies and was glad for a blanket and pillow and thought the headphones were a nice touch since most people have Bluetooth and it doesn’t connect to airplane TVs"
Cons: "I felt this seats could have been more comfortable, & I was very VERY disappointed that I had to check my carryon especially since it was a backpack and was not designed to check. One of my cosmetic products was even damaged because I had to quickly check my bag at the gate, to my final destination."
Pros: "The airport is nice"
Cons: "But they didn’t let me in because I didn’t show up for the first flight"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "HOT. The plane was 90% of the time. It would tease you just long enough to start to fall asleep, then bam! You wake up in a sweat. It was 9.5 of 10 hours of a low boil sweat. The most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Apparently a known issue, including the condensation leaks on people sitting next to the window. (Guessing that's why the A/C was left off.) Also one of the bathrooms was quickly out of service. Another would auto flush if you tried to sit down. And another the green light was on whether occupied/locked or not. So 3 of 4 in Economy had at least some kind of malfunction. The power tinting windows never responded to the buttons - assumed they were on master override. Finally, the seats were pretty compact. I would describe World Traveler on BA (aka Economy) more like the new compact Basic Economy offered on other carriers. Seats were very small and leg room consumed by some kind of service boxes. I'm hoping to all things holy that our return flight is actually an American Air flight instead of BA direct. Really afraid of another 10+ hours of torture."
Pros: "Boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "the crew was accommodating"
Cons: "i was asked to pay to check in my luggage :("
Pros: "This was the second leg of flight from Gatwick, short stay at St Lucia, only a short flight, didn't leave the plane there so boarding and food comments don't really apply to this flight. Crew changed over here - new crew as good as first leg, excellent, never had problems with this on BA."
Cons: "Entertainment poor, limited choice and mediocre screens. Is the Boeing 777 fleet due a refurb? If so, don't spoil the seats and legroom, but do update the in-flight entertainment system!"
Pros: "The plane ride was fine. No food/drink for such a short flight, but I didn't expect it and didn't need it."
Cons: "It was slightly delayed taking off."
Cons: "Have to pay for everything even soda and snacks"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our trip to Vienna from London was less appealing than the one from Montreal to London. No food, no entertainment and seat space was cramped which reminded me of my Air Transat experiences."
Pros: "Great seats, lots of room. The ground crew were great and helped with our baggage and the cabin crew was as good as they could be given the restrictions on their jobs."
Cons: "Had to pay for water or drink tepid tap water, we were not even given water or a cheap bag of pretzels, also the plane had not been cleaned forever, there was crusty food on the floor and trash. It was very strange for an international flight."
Pros: "The crew were very nice. Liked the food."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that there was no Wi-Fi access. Seat 40 DEFG doesn't feel comfortable because people were just walking in front of us."
Cons: "La pantalla se veía muy borrosa. Un sistema muy lento y obsoleto Necesitan actualizarlo"
Pros: "Boarding at the gate was quick and easy."
Cons: "Charge for Coke was USD$ 2. Did not advise Gate fpr LHR to Venice until45 minutes. Had more seating at the gate then the main terminal "A". It was in "B" gate."
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "Seats and seat configuration"
Pros: "Crew did really well in their roles."
Cons: "BA are no different than all operators in the drive to put as many bums in as many seats as possible. News flash. Only so many sardines go in one tin. Make seats more comfortable and more leg room and we would pay the premium for that reputation as a caring, comfortable operator."
Pros: "The flight staff was great. We had lots of food and yummy snacks. I loved being served tea not once but twice! They took good care of us on a long boring flight."
Cons: "Not enough movies to choose from. I couldn't find any that I liked except kids shows... a couple chic flicks would have been nice in the mix."
Pros: "The on time arrival"
Cons: "That even non alcoholic drinks costs The gate agent provided misleading information"
Cons: "Theres no entertainment and I had to run to my gate because the connection time is so short."
Pros: "Ice cream. Nowday, on flight food is hard to find the tasty one."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid for bulkhead seat and was not given a bulkhead seat."
Pros: "Airline accommodated the delay with free room and meal voucher."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 24 hours. Text message was sent on route that the flight was on time. Mechanical problems."
Pros: "Good, thanks"
Cons: "not many options in food n juice, I asked for cookies ( basic thing ) , was not available even. No option for Bollywood movies in entertainment as lots of Indian fly in this Delhi - London - San Jose"
Cons: "We were late..had issues with carry-on unnecessarily... They didn't even serve water"
Pros: "Most things"
Cons: "Luggage took forever to be delivered in Newark--one of the longest waits I've ever experienced."
Pros: "It’s was very good thanks"
Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"
Cons: "Movie quality was not great"
Pros: "This was a BA codeshare but operated by Qatar Airways on its A380. Qatar Airways are a true 5* airline and every detail is gone through with precision. A fantastic crew, great entertainment system, comfortable seats, nice food... If I could fly Qatar Airways everywhere, I would"
Pros: "Comfortable and classy."
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Flight cancelled."
Pros: "staff was very friendly."
Pros: "The crew was great and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "No wifi on board. What plane in this day and age isn't equipped with wifi? Especially on a 9 hour flight! Food was terrible."
Pros: "Late departure, no complimentary food or drink, outside boarding (no jetway bridge) in the weather...squeezed into transport bus in ALC"
Cons: "Late, hot, uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great staff. Helpful and friendly. I had a comfy seat on the aisle and the plane wasn't crowded so I had an empty seat between me and the next passenger. The food was good. The movie/TV options were fun. I was entertained the whole way to London."
Pros: "Although there were some problems with the arrival of the flight into Gatwick, the captain came along the cabin explaining the difficulties and offering his sincerest apologies (although it was not his fault, nor the fault of BA). This was truly a British response to something like this. Also, I paid for a seat with extra legroom and the space I had was massive - well worth the investment for a 12+ hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic in Lima. It really can't be that hard to organize different lines for different parts of the plane."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "This was my worst flight experience in a long time...an anomaly from other recent BA flights. I was unable to sleep on the flight because it was so crowded. I ordered a lactose-free meal that was unbelievably horrible and from which I'm pretty sure I contracted a food-borne bug that kept me ill (as in sleeping up to 15 hours a day and running for the toilet) for a week after the flight."
Pros: "New plane. Adequate comfortable seating. Relatively punctual."
Cons: "You have to buy even water so it feels like a low cost airline."
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "Crew looked groomed"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "M&S Food menu is limited as it is - they then also run out of most items and couldnt serve passengers on a 5 hour flight.."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Flight was totally full... At least everyone had a mask on American does not space seats like Delta does I will be taking Delta whenever possible"
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."
Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "In a perfect world, no 2-hour delay."
Cons: "Felt good to be home after almost 4 hours delayed."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Being bumped to first class."
Cons: "A small meal would have been appreciated for first class cabin. Al that was offered was a cookie."
Pros: "Accommodation to any concerns"
Pros: "Fast boarding and unloading."
Cons: "Flight leaving on time."
Pros: "Th flight was a few minutes late boarding but we landed on time. It was a nice smooth flight!"
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"
Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Service staff was friendly enough; maybe I’m used to southwest. As someone who is anxious to fly smiling faces are always appreciate."
Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and the cleanliness was excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable!"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."
Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."
Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Pros: "It was successful."
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Cons: "Delayed. 3 hours on tarmac, no AC, then disembarked. Had to rebook another flight. Arrived to Vienna 9 hours late. The whole family lost one day of holidays. Will ask for compensation"
Cons: "Waited on aircraft for over one hour after boarding Flight attendants did not provide any updates or compensation for passengers sitting and waiting See tweets from other passengers on aircanada who experienced the same confusion, lack of updates, inattentive staff, pilot made very few updates and did not instruct flight attendants to do anything to make situation easier Delayed over an hour after we were told flight would be departing Offered pretzels Bathrooms were not cleaned after previous flight (garbages over flowing, stench, water everywhere) No air conditioning in flight Did not turn on wifi for the flight Will be filing a formal complaint and requesting a refund."
Pros: "Nothing..you're going from one airline to another one... N the schedule is was changed without notice..."
Cons: "First I get to the airport in Montreal to fly with Lufthansa.as I bought my ticket with Lufthansa.. ..made line for about 15 min they tell me it is not with them, it is with air canada..no reason why...so I did made line again..the hours of that fly were the same.. but when I landed in Geneva somebody is waiting for me to tell me my fly has been cancel..so I had to fly to Zurich instead and not only that I had a meeting today getting into barcelona but with the new schedule instead of arriving to 400 pm I ended up getting there at 730pm..and to add to this it is a 4 days trip so I already lost one..and I still not in Barcelona so will see what happens to my bag."
Pros: "On time and pleasant staff"
Pros: "Issues caused by weather, otherwise flight was fine."
Cons: "I'm kind of tall so leg room always seems scarce."
Cons: "They feel like seats for budget flights."
Pros: "That we arrived in Toronto and got to get off the plane."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours. The rows are way too close together to be remotely comfortable, and the seats themselves are tiny and barely recline. Being 5 months pregnant, I was uncomfortable the entire flight. The "entertainment" that you have to download an app for didn't work, and particularly stung knowing how much we paid for the flights, and that other airlines simply put a TV on the back of each seat that is easy to connect headphones and view. The food on our previous flight had been so terrible we didn't bother on this trip, but it looked equally awful. My husband was in the aisle seat and the flight attendant repeatedly and without warning hit him with the cart. The flight attendants varied in level of friendliness, but the ones in our row rushed through service, and did not give us the options the other row had (ice in drinks, veggie or meat options). All in all, it was kind of a terrible flight experience."
Pros: "The crew on board the plane was as good as can be expected. They were polite and tried to be helpful."
Cons: "From the time of booking the flight, we tried to sort out our profiles, provide passport and KTN, and frequent flyer info, as requested when we booked. Website problems were numerous, from being kicked off multiple times, to refusing to accept my info. I tried numerous times to call on the phone since the web site didn't work, but either didn't get through or was directed back to the web site. Eventually, I reached someone that told me it would be best to just sort it out at the airport. At the airport, I was told I should have set things up ahead of time. In the end, two of us traveling together, with work to do together over the course of the 13 hour flight, ended up sitting on opposite sides of the plane, and didn't get fed because they ran out of food. This shouldn't happen to anyone, but having paid for premium economy seats, you can imagine I was even angrier. We brought this up with a customer service rep in person when we landed and were told that she had no power to do anything and that we should call when we got home. And just to top things off, when I realized I couldn't get work done, I tried watching a movie and learned that the audio jack on my entertainment system was broken."
Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."
Pros: "Why Canada created a ridiculous process that requires a $7 payment for transmitting in Canada is beyond me. I hope they realize they are impairing the competition of it's own national airline."
Pros: "Good legroom and entertainment options, on time. Enjoyable overall."
Cons: "Food showed British heritage -- stodgy, boring, overcooked. The bathrooms were dirty and out of supplies after a while."
Cons: "No power outlets in coach. On a 10 hour flight you would hope the airline could afford to let people charge their phones. Food was ok but not great."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "Our flight got canceled 12 hours before we were supposed to take off. They postponed our flight 24 hours. It took forever to change it so that we still arrived at our destination on the same day. I'm glad I checked my email before going to bed because otherwise I would have shown up to the airport not knowing my flight was canceled. That should not have happened. It almost ruined my trip."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "When someone has a terrible experience with a single individual it's just an anomaly. When it came to our experience it's easy to see that it's systemic and come from the top down in that company. The lack of customer service training is apparent. It was rampant and the overall feeling was just plain rudeness exuding from every team member. I'll never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled suddenly. A half hour before take off with no reason given. There was no staff available to help with rebookings and it was the super bowl. I was able to pay out of pocket an additional CAD500 to get on a Delta flight that was just about to leave."
Cons: "the staff at Toronto airport are awful. all of them gave me different instructions when my reservation between Toronto and Newark was cancelled. they left my checked in my suitcase at Toronto and delivered to my apartment 2 days after. I don't want to use them again!"
Cons: "Had to have a visa for connecting flights. Not worth going through Canada."
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Cons: "Too far distance to get to immigration there was no assistants otherwise the flight was good"
Pros: "I breathe threw my neck & I'm used to putting the air blower on my neck for extra air. These planes had none. We were surprised. And room between the seats was tight."
Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers the best service and the most relaxing flights."
Pros: "Staff 5 stars."
Cons: "getting off the airplane and no staff or better signs in Calgary to direct me to get my bag, and where to go with it. to customs drop off my bag. and the gate was poorly marked (granted there was construction) but no staff out of the gates in the area where I left from to ask for verification. LONG walk....................."
Cons: "And I paid for the preferred upgrade"
Pros: "Space between seats in economy class"
Cons: "Delays both on Det to Toronto and Toronto to Kingston"
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"
Cons: "1hour 32 min late departure flight from Miami Missed my two conection to budapest, arrived to my destination 8 hours late. Airlines lost my luggage . I missed all my bussines meeting huge lost for me."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Aaron, was wonderful"
Cons: "Everything else was awful....I was taking an international flights, so arrived at the airport 3 hours early, as specified. There was no attendant at the desk until 1.45 hours prior to boarding. We almost missed the flight, and as a result, the connection to London. If possible, I will not fly air Canada again"
Pros: "Curtous and competent crew. Good Price Direct Flight"
Cons: "Very little perks on the flight. Flight right at dinner time and no food provided (Need to be purchased on-board. Not all choices were available). Entertainment system required to provide our own devices, but it was not possible to plug in to recharge (5 hour flight!)."
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: "Smooth flight, excellent pilot"
Cons: "Huge delay, missed connection"
Pros: "I thought the service was excellent."
Cons: "There were some delays taking off, but I don't think it had to do with the airline"
Pros: "Nothing at all actually"
Cons: "Old tiny plane, delayed two hours because of what seemed like sheer stupidity. I mean we had to wait an extra 30 mins on top of the regular delay time because they loaded the bags wrong. I had already been traveling over 24 hours due to the time zone differences and this last flight was just intolerable. Certainly it could have been worse, but this was just terrible already."
Pros: "Air Canada's cabin attendents make the journey bearable. Keep these people at all costs, becauae they are doing a fantastic job."
Cons: "I prefer the old-fashioned seatback monitor to rental ipads."
Cons: "Everything poor attitude bad manners and terrible demeanor"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and nothing to drink was provided."
Cons: "Was delayed so long I almost missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Staff was useless. Made all international connections via my cell phone."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did not bother to inform us! Ended up flying on United and arrived 6 hours later than planned."
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."
Cons: "Didn't know I needed an app downloaded to my phone prior to boarding - so I had to rent an iPad to have some entertainment."
Pros: "We were very impressed with Air Canada and would highly recommend flying with them to any destination!"
Cons: "Organized, friendly, polite staff. Everything ran very smoothly, especially the actual flight."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "BOARDED LATE AND IN GATES VERY FAR FROM CHECKING. The (solitary) crew member did not speak French. Everything she said in French was unintelligible- very offensive (and disturbing) for Francophone passengers such as myself. And for a Canadian carrier- This shows no respect for our pluralism. When we book online and try to pick priority seating, then find out that the plane is so small that the 9th row means 9 out of 12 or something, this feels like a con. Especially when we pay extra. Stop making people pay for seats that don't get them any priority boarding (Zone 3!) and offer no real advantage."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed a couple hours, customs was "full" at Pearson causing more delays"
Pros: "I like every thing about that flight it was my best flight going to Jamaica.thanks again for such an awesome flight."
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Pros: "Steward was funny"
Cons: "Small plane, wasn't told ahead of time that there was no carry on luggage and I had lap top I had to carry on and expensive camera equipment that had to be checked, would not have taken this flight if I knew this ahead of time."
