Airline reviews

Pros: "Japan Airlines always, always, always takes such good care of us, especially with the kids. This flight was no exception. I had forgotten to reserve a kid's meal for our kids (don't forget, parents) and they went well out of their way to make sure that the kids had food that they would like."

Pros: "The Crew was great with kids, and went out of their way to reach out to the boy sitting in the row in front of me."
Cons: "I was running late, and lady that checked me in was accommodating but a little bit standoffish."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and cheerful. The beverage selection was very good and the food was decent. The on board entertainment is some of the best around. The boarding efficiency of JAL is the best I have seen."

Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "More space"

Pros: "Perfect in all aspects. Will use them again for all my flights."

Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"

Pros: "Great crew! Easy transfer. Handled our luggage very well! Will fly again. Food was good!"
Cons: "More movie options would have been nice."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."

Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."

Pros: "Japan Airlines hasn’t the best customer service of any airline I have ever flown. Flight attendants aren’t very friendly and they give you a lot of food. The entertainment was great as well."
Cons: "The staff at Tokyo Narita was slow and unfriendly, which doesn’t reflect well for Japan air."

Cons: "Japan airline will end the flights from Narita to Incheon on 3/25 which doesn’t work for my future trips."

Pros: "The seating on this plane was super spacious and comfortable- leg and seats. Also the seatbelt gave real room. The plane was cleaned; crew friendly, food delicious- featuring semi- famous chefs and well ventilated."
Cons: "Flights should enter from back to front that way you're not waking over people to get your seat.-"

Pros: "On time Cleanliness"
Cons: "The food for people with special needs is horrible Most of the staff has poor communication in English on international flights"

Pros: "FA service with a smile. All pleasant and nice to deal with. Windows are button controlled."
Cons: "Economy meal is not that great. Boarding should be by zone or by seat number."

Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"

Cons: "No complaints! Not even one!"

Pros: "Service and airplane are the best!"

Pros: "Direct flught, food is always delicious, crew is very attentive, and the in-flight TV seats have great entertainment."

Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "I don't think there's anything I didn't like during my journey"

Pros: "Food, pleasant and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Long layovets"

Pros: "Very comfortable plane, even full. Polite crew."

Pros: "My wife and I made the rookie mistake of showing up to the wrong airport in Osaka but the JAL staff helped us by transferring our reservation to a later flight so that we were still able to make our connecting flight from Tokyo to San Francisco. We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"

Pros: "They were good at helping with problems being it was my first time on a plane."
Cons: "The food was ok but not very good for as the meals go but they did fill me up with drinks lol"

Cons: "I reserved Korean air but it was Japan air line. I was really difficult to web-check in to find my reservaiton."

Pros: "All were very polite and were very through when checking the cabin before departure and landing"

Pros: "I liked the overall service and professionalism."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited, it was an older system I assume as the screen was not touchscreen."

Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."

Pros: "I feel like I got way more than what I paid for with this airline! The hostesses were super friendly always offering some sort of beverage, the food was tasty (Be careful not to drop noodles on yourself like I did, those bad boys left a little mark). The video selection wasn't huge, but it was definitely adequate with good titles. Maybe I haven't noticed this before in other airlines, but they had new toothbrushes (packaged, not someone's forgotten toothbrush) in the restroom so the poor sap next to me didn't have to smell my stinky breath. Finally, they were quick with boarding! They were very punctual and we took off right when we got on, so nice!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty adequately sized, however, I felt like I couldn't lay back too far or if the the person in front of me did, it made it really difficult to get the seats. Also, I thought it was my headphones, but it happened on a couple of flights with different headphones, but the audio only comes out of one earphone which was slightly annoying... Other than those things, JAL is super solid and I would recommend it to anyone considering them."

Pros: "Friendly and respectful staff, great meals, tasty!"

Pros: "I am all right for travelling by Japan airlines this trips to Taipei. My hometown."

Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."

Pros: "leg space was better than with other companies"

Pros: "That it was comfortable."

Pros: "The flight's timing and airports are perfect for a short weekend getaway between Seoul and Tokyo. JAL service is also perfect!"

Pros: "the ANA folks at the departure check-in went out of their way to get me on my flight. You see, I got to the airport right before boarding. Their response? They literally escorted me through security, waited for me at the immigration checkpoint, and brought me to the boarding gate! I love ANA! :)"

Pros: "The crew was very good."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "The way they board"

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Plenty of legroom in economy."
Cons: "Vegan food option unimaginative. Tomatoes used in every dish!"

Pros: "The staff of ANA took superb care of us from the moment we entered the airport (both SEA and NRT); kindness, excellent food (choose the seafood diet, the food is excellent and you get served first!) and helpful directions in English whenever we looked the slightest bit confused. I will always look to fly ANA going forward. oh, and comfortable economy seats; enough room (I am 6'2") and no numb bum."

Pros: "Timely schedule"
Cons: "Foods and beverages quality/variation"

Cons: "Seats are way too small, incredibly uncomfortable to the point of painful ness. More luggage space"

Pros: "The Japanese food was fantastic - individual Japanese food selections which I wondered if would be good turned out totally amazing - well done!"

Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."
Cons: "I did think about changing my departure time but the ticketing agency didn’t relly quickly enough so I was stuck. Luckily it worked out."

Pros: "Enough legroom/more than what you’d find on your standard 4-5 hour flights. The stewardesses were great! They attended to every need with a smile. They did a great job of making sure everyone was comfortable."

Pros: "everything."

Pros: "The plane came from LAX was 45 minutes late...but not a problem.....still ok"

Cons: "The food was horrible. The movie selections were quite limited."

Pros: "Very efficient, friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food was gross."

Pros: "The crew are so courteous and helpful."

Pros: "Prepackaged sandwiches were so so. Crew were friendly and helpful. Leg room was pretty good. Bathroom had a lot of amenities."
Cons: "The seats are kind of flat."

Pros: "Service was excellent. Stewardess always came back with what they promised to bring. Premium economy seating was very good."

Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "---"

Cons: "https://twitter.com/devanshsoni10/status/940564856142311424"

Pros: "short flight ready to get home"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "It is a very long flight."

Cons: "The check-in at LAX. They form 2 different lines for Economy. The 1st line was lined with the people arriving first. Then the 2nd line started to fill later. But when the ANA agents came out, they have no clue and serve the line of the people arriving later. Should know what they are doing. Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"

Pros: "Crew and service were top notch. Everything done efficiently and flawlessly. Food was good. Flight was smooth and trouble free,"
Cons: "Nine hours in tight confinement just cannot be fun. There is no way that great service can fix the problem of being kept in an extremely small and uncomfortable space. Business and first class are unaffordable, so there is no solution. I'd fly more if it were not so painful."

Cons: "Connecting flight from Narita to Washington. Please consider giving enough time for passenger to check in. Security line is so long and very slow."

Pros: "The plane was very clean. Staff was very polite and helpful. Foodoffering was very good."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Pretzels"

Cons: "Breakfast option"

Pros: "All the Japanese food are delicious! The crew are polite and nice"

Pros: "Love the staff, helpful and polite!"

Pros: "Very clean plane. Nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. I would love to fly again with ANA. Terrific entertainment system and movies."
Cons: "Minor thing is the headset, which doesn't provide the best sound, but it will do. Food options can improve."

Pros: "Love the service provided by the flight crews. The landing was smooth and quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the crew announced the same thing about it twice."

Cons: "Very hard landing."

Pros: "Crew was outstanding Food and service was excellent"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment was extremely limited. For a nine hour flight there was limited movies in English. Especially as we had seen most of the movies on the previous flight."

Pros: "staff was great in business"

Pros: "In-flight service from staff was excellent as always, food is good but not outstanding (but let's be clear this was economy class), movie selection is good."
Cons: "From Japan to other places they're always organised, but boarding in London was a little chaotic which is a common problem for ANA flights in other countries *to* Japan - they hadn't set up signs properly or made clear announcements for families with children, First Class, Business class boarding etc. The First Class/Diamond status queue (not for me!) was actually set up in front of a supporting pillar, basic organisational things like that. On balance though, still a top-class airline."

Pros: "Onbaord Crew hospitality"
Cons: "Poor ground handling by narita staff. By bus from terminal to plane. Mixed with economy pasaangers. Chaos from bus to plane. All passangers exposed to freezing cold weather at narita aiport outdoor."

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and the food was amazing. Entertainment was also very good daughter loved it"

Pros: "Rather new plane; tight, hard, uncomfortable seat architecture. I'm 6 feet tall and 160 pounds -- probably about the 'ideal size' for design. Least comfortable long flight I've had in a very long time."

Pros: "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
Cons: "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."

Pros: "Flight crew were amazing! Very hospitable and attentive."
Cons: "WiFi was not very good. Connection was very slow and they charge $20 per 100 MB used (instead of one flat fee)."

Pros: "Staff was friendly, Aircraft was clean and tidy."
Cons: "Food was poor, there was no space, even domestic flights have more space than this one.!!"

Pros: "Everything accept the food selection."
Cons: "It would have been better if we had more selection of food, it's a minor issue and what do you expect if you know you're flying on a Japan airline. I just wish they would have a little more selection gear toward American food. :-)"

Pros: "Quick boarding, comfortable seating and amazing flight crew."
Cons: "The flight crew was great. Also there was more then enough in flight entertainment for the entire flight."

Cons: "Boarding of all economy passengers was done on first come and stand in line, first served basis with no zone separation. This caused aisle congestion. I was randomly asked to check in my standard size carry one although many passengers with larger bags were allowed to take them with them. Overall there was a lack of planned approach."

Pros: "The food was excellent, and the crew was nice"
Cons: "There was a delay on the boarding and they didn't provide a reason."

Pros: "There were many comforts to the plane even in economy."
Cons: "There is little leg room in economy for someone over 5’11”"

Pros: "Entertainment on Detroit flight was great as well as the seating, food, and crew.."

Pros: "Great service, great crew! If available, will choose Lufthansa for my next flight! Friendly crew, smooth flying, great entertainment choices."

Pros: "The flight was smooth. The timing of the flight arrival and immigration was perfect. More than enough time to clear that process. The airline crew on board was professional and pleasaht"
Cons: "The seating was very close. Not enough room to sleep comfortably."

Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."

Pros: "Crew. Courteous, engaging and supportive, of-course with a smile."
Cons: "Nothing on this flight"

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work most of flight and when it did required payment."

Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Waiting in the line long then expect"

Pros: "Very pleasant experience. Seats were comfortable! Nice to get a pillow and blanket at each seat. Also that the tv had a space for a USB plug!"

Pros: "The plane was very clean and I appreciated when the crew asked passengers have their seats in a normal upright position during meal times as there is very little space when the seats are reclined. We can hardly get out of our seats when other passengers need to go to the restrooms."
Cons: "The crew was rather cold; I got the feeling they were doing their jobs but not in a warm and customer friendly oriented way, may be because I was in Economy. I was surprised by the lack of space in economy for such a long Haul flight in an A 380."

Pros: "Crews were very friendly"

Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding went smoothly. Seats not too comfy, knee room seems to be shrinking with every flight (transatlantic routes mostly)."
Cons: "I like wathcing European movies (German, French, etc.) when flying LH, but unfortunately they rarely have English subtitles."

Pros: "Great business class seats. Plenty of room and comfortable."

Pros: "I arrived at my destination completely unstressed."
Cons: "Security checks, but this is unavoidable"

Pros: "The temperature was moderate, not as cold as ususl. Stewards were very nice."
Cons: "Our seats were at the very back and the flight was quite bumpy at times. It left a bit late due to passengers not showing up and having to remove luggage. They wouldn't allow my husband to use his backpack as a personal item he had to count it as a carryon despite others having more carryon items."

Pros: "food, entertainment and most of the crew was great"
Cons: "Early boarding and then got yelled at for showing up 3min after official boarding time on ticket. no air vents for each seat. massive heat in airplane while waiting for taxiing"

Pros: "Everything. The flight was great and the staff were awesome. Thanks Lufthansa."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."

Pros: "The service was fast. The employees were kind."

Cons: "Food on flight Detroit - Frankfurt was terrible."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Food for Indian vegetarian meal was very poor. Idea of chickpeas in transatlantic flight is not good! Crew did help out and offer another option!"

Cons: "the flight info was off"

Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airlines Front desk delay, long boarding , poor food"

Pros: "One of middle aged blonde flight attendants - didnt get her name- was super nice and friendly and shoukd be rewarded for standing out in the crowd of flight attendants. Food above average."
Cons: "Delay at departure in Frankfurt - fuel tank problem- made people miss their connection flights. Medical problem on board caused delays and me having to change seats at the end to where the sick woman used to sit - smelled of vomit, gross. 3 crying bwbies for 12 hours. Seats too narrow, room in front too small with table pulled out. LH always good but not this time."

Pros: "WiFi on long flight from Detroit to Frankfurt"

Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."
Cons: "Clearing passport control in Frankfurt is very slow. The setup is not very good for a world class airport. You need to give yourself at least an hour."

Pros: "Tans it time to Amman is too long and that is the most distressing"

Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"

Pros: "Efficiency and made sure our luggage made it on our connecting flight"
Cons: "All good no complaints"

Cons: "The flight was late."

Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"

Pros: "Professional, friendly, helpful staff in a new, quiet plane (A380-800). Smooth landing. Easy disembarkment despite approximately 500 passengers from a large aircraft."
Cons: "Unreliable domestic Lufthansa flights (in Germany) connected to this international one, and the departure time history for this LH400 proved typical for this flight, which ultimately left nearly 2 hours late despite good local weather. An announcement cited technical difficulties with the originally scheduled plane. Several small groups we recognized from embarkation on this LH400 flight filed lost luggage claims, as we did. Uncharacteristically bad planning by LH on food choices left our rows near the front of Economy without a choice of meals: only pasta, tasty though it was, was available. The chicken option was gone. The flight status video program function did not work for anybody near us despite three equipment restarts by the crew."

Pros: "On time all the time"
Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."

Pros: "The Lufthansa flight and crew were fantastic. Nice plane with amenities. It was far better than our return flight on Air Canada."
Cons: "My return on Air Canada."

Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."

Pros: "bad service"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Food was just OK. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The München terminal by the gate has two antic wending machine that work only with cash. Nothing around once you pass security in that part of the terminal. Internet wasn't working either. Poor Germans, they lack ideas and money.... Then the plane had issues, we left 2 hours late because some Computer on board malfunctioned. Many people lost the connecting flights. Overall, I will avoid this airport, and flight path in the future."

Pros: "I liked how organized the crews are. The flight attendants are driven by efficiency. Things were done quickly like serving drinks and water. Appreciated having the hand towel to wipe the hands before serving the meals."
Cons: "I fly economy class with United and Lufthansa when I travel from the US to Asia or Europe. Lufthansa seats feel narrower. I am only 1.62 meters in height. I felt there was not enough room for a 12+ hour flight (delayed by one hour). The small leg room began to take a toll after 6 hours of flight."

Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."

Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."

Cons: "Poor cabin crew behavior. Gate agent kind of reprimanded passengers to carry only one bag to cabin almost shouting at people in Frankfurt."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very small cramped seats in business class. Would not fly again."

Pros: "The live streaming of the NBA finals game on the flight was excellent."
Cons: "The check in process was incredibly inefficient. I have never had to wait so long to check in my bags. The attendants were chatting and laughing while not helping customers and customers were unfairly taken from the middle of the line to jump the queue."

Pros: "Boarding process, food and entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little small, even for economy."

Pros: "Food and eating with proper utensils, Brandy after dinner"
Cons: "Entrainment center glitch. Headphone quality."

Pros: "Great flight service, lots of good food, and plenty of fluids."

Cons: "Nice"

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: "Leg room"
Cons: "The onboard crew was rude and one guy actually grabbed me which to me is unprofessional. All because I had a poster tube that wasn't in my bag they wanted it in my bag. Then I asked for a seat change due to my size hard for ne to be in the middle and the lady was snooty about it."

Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"

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: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"

Cons: "Felt good to be home after almost 4 hours delayed."

Pros: "Great crew and service"

Cons: "A small meal would have been appreciated for first class cabin. Al that was offered was a cookie."

Pros: "Th flight was a few minutes late boarding but we landed on time. It was a nice smooth flight!"

Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."
Cons: "That due to the Kayak purchase I had to wait until the last group to board."

Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"

Pros: "Perfect"

Pros: "Easy check in."

Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and the cleanliness was excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable!"

Pros: "All good"

Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Pros: "Boarding"
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."

Pros: "Comfort"
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: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

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: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

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: "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."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"

Pros: "Air Canada business class is superior comfort."

Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "Had nit boarded any cognac or gochuchong hot pepper paste."

Pros: "Food was great for airplane food, there was bibimbap, jjajjangmyun and egg sandwich"
Cons: "Didn’t like being in a small seat for 10+ hours. Plane seemed more cramped than I remember"

Pros: "they had top movies, which helped me get through. The staff were friendly enough to not be rude and to do what they were suppose to on the flight. the food was good for the first meal, real chicken. second meal only had pork so luckily I had bought a burger in the airport before boarding since I do not eat pork. All my layover flights were on time with on time boarding/ departure which i Highly appreciated."
Cons: "I did not understand why they would use the same seat design they used for a 2-5 hour flight for a 11Hour Flight!! I had never experienced being that uncomfortable in my seat. I am used to flying 13hours straight but with comfortable and Padded! seats with room to move. the seats were not padded and there was little to no space to put your legs in a comfortable position. My back and neck were killing me in the last 2 hours."

Pros: "Fairly comfortable flight. I enjoyed the new shading windows with no physical shutters"
Cons: "I did not like the glass in my food. I mentioned it to the flight attendent and she said I probably have nothing to worry about but took my information down."

Pros: "The flight crew went the extra mile to give good service. There were plenty of meals and snacks throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms are cramped, they are clean however. Seats are also very close together, others must get out if you are in a middle or window seat."

Pros: "Great Service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I wish there was more options with the seats. I would have liked to have my legs out more so they reached the part where I could rest them on the end which is raised and at the same time have my back in a more upright position. This plane did not have that option. I have had it on other planes."

Pros: "The flight was a little late due to weather but everything else about the trip was smooth and painless."
Cons: "The leg room was just adequate. The food was good but nothing too great."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs"

Pros: "Inonized windows"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "The seat comfort was wonderful. And the food was great."

Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "English subtitles for movie collections"

Pros: "After a bad connection, it was nice to have a smooth flight."

Cons: "Even the preferred seats in front are not that long legeooms. Unless it's exit row, don't waste your money on it."

Cons: "For non-U.S. Citizens the transiting in Canada is inconvenient and expensive. I wouldn't travel through Canada by plane again."

Pros: "Plenty of Entertainment Choices"

Pros: "I had wheel chair service for transit"
Cons: "Layover time was not enough. I got 1 hour or so for transit. Ridiculous short"

Pros: "The new tinted windows are cool"

Pros: "We flew premium economy, and it was so much better than regular economy. Seating just two across made my wife's and my journey much easier. The crew was attentive when they needed to be, and the food was quite good. I managed to sleep several hours, which is about as good as it gets on a long haul flight."
Cons: "I was surprised at the selections available for movies and TV; not much that was appealing. Took a Singapore air flight a few days later and felt like the selections were better. But we brought an iPad and had downloaded House of Cards, so we were OK. Besides, I got to sleep."

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: "Boarding process was smooth, staff was friendly and helpful, flight was safe and as comfortable as an overseas flight can be. I'll definitely consider Air Canada again and would recommend the airline to others considering it."

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."

Pros: "Food service was good and staff was nice"
Cons: "Staff did not come often enough with water. Not as many snacks as I have gotten on Korean Airlines and Japan Airlines. Definitely better than American Airlines or United Airlines flights which are the worse example of how to provide excellent food and service. Short time allowance for flights connections since most flights from Chicago start off late. Look to carriers such as Luftansa, Jordan Air, Turkish Air as the right way to do things."

Pros: "Good boarding time, though the passengers were disorganized. It's not air Canada's fault. Even in the snow, we made good time to the destination."
Cons: "There was not enough room for many people's carry on items and staff did not help find space. Most of the passengers would not put their small bags under the seats so passengers with big bags had no choice but to give up foot space completely. Carry on limits should be better enforced."

Cons: "Had to have a visa for connecting flights. Not worth going through Canada."

Pros: "Low price with big value. The food was great and service felt like first class. The staff was friendly, courteous, professional and accommodating! Definitely recommend and will fly with Air Canada again!"
Cons: "The long layover, 14 hours"

Pros: "Nothing!"
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!"

Pros: "Constant ability to have water, decent selection of beverages. Food wasn't spectacular but was adequate."
Cons: "As a non Canadian I found the entertainment selection to be lacking. The movies and games were good however I have never heard of any of the musical artists and I found the tv selections lacking. Why only 2-3 episodes per show? The middle seat in economy had armrests narrower than my shoulders making it painful on my elbows"

Pros: "Entertainment, crew, boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Turkish airlines always delivers the best service and the most relaxing flights."

Pros: "Excellent crews"
Cons: "Uncomfy seats, poor food taste"

Cons: "Delays both on Det to Toronto and Toronto to Kingston"

Pros: "Same plane as the one I flew on the way to Toronto. It's a really nice plane."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"

Pros: "Space in economy Windows were great"

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: "The stewards were very attentive and kind. My original seat was kind of squished and there were a few open seats on my flight. So a lovely stewards offered me another seat where I wouldn't be sandwiched between people."

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 love how the flight attendants were courteous and I did not feel neglected at all. I was a smooth flight and would gladly fly AIr Canada again"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like about the flight."

Pros: "The food was excellent and the seats were very comfortable. I also loved the blanket and slippers. Service was top notch!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was an excellent experience."

Pros: "Clean and new airplane"
Cons: "boarding process missing baggages unfriendly crews"

Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was terrible. There needs to be a wider selection of movies."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything poor attitude bad manners and terrible demeanor"

Pros: "Very good individual entertainer system in seat backs of new boeing dream liner."
Cons: "Called in advance re special veg meal but they didn't have it at mealtime."

Cons: "Was delayed so long I almost missed my connecting flight."

Cons: "One flight left 47 minutes late, but it didn't matter because we had a long layover anyway."

Cons: "Staff was useless. Made all international connections via my cell phone."

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: "I like every thing about that flight it was my best flight going to Jamaica.thanks again for such an awesome flight."
