Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "Nothing! Excellent flight!"
Pros: "the selection of beverages and the crew are very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The person who assisted me to check in didn’t even know about Global entry..."
Pros: "Complementary sake and great rice cracker snacks."
Cons: "Come around more often to collect trash."
Pros: "Very professional staff, smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Uncomfortably hot throughout flight. My entertainment system was out of sync, so some movies wouldn't play and the others would link to something completely different. My companion's systems appeared to work fine, so we took turns switching seats to use the one entertainment system."
Pros: "Standard JAL. No hassles, nice, clean, friendly. Makes Hawaiian airlines look so Bad!"
Pros: "Great service. Food drink and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Very helpful staff. Easy check in. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "i cancelled my flight and still have not got my money returned"
Cons: "I dont have my return but you take it right away"
Pros: "Crew was great, just like Japanese specific hospitality. Crew clean up toilet and keep refilling toilet supply. Airplane was nice and clean. Entertainment equipment was up to date."
Cons: "I could not log in in JAL website using mileage account. They said it has been maintanance mode for a while and could not tell when it would be completed. I tried a month later but the problem was not solved. They foward any problems and inquiries to reservation center but calling the number won't find anyone to talk. Always they put me on hold for hours and never reached anyone. I have food allergy and tried to request for special meals but the option was not there under my eticket number as described in their website. They say the option may not be available because I purchased my ticket from 3rd party, not from JAL or it was code share flight. Very inconvenient. I had to skip 2 meals out of 3in leaving for Japan. I got very hungry at the end of the flight...."
Cons: "The attendants were very pleasant and efficient. I will certainly prefer to fly JAL, especially if you could offer the lower rates. On the down side, it was very difficult to contact their customer service line. However their online help desk was very responsive."
Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. However, it was a little too warm on the flight for our liking. Other than that, we had a great experience."
Cons: "Delayed flight that cost most passangers their next flights, incredibly stressful. Upon arriving to Chicago there was a problem lining up the exit ramp to the boarding craft and it took a very long time to correct the situation."
Pros: "Service is outstanding. Attentive but not invasive and always with a genuine smile. Will fly JAL every time it’s an option"
Pros: "Great tasting food, and nearly constant beverage service."
Pros: "The customer service overall was really good."
Cons: "The food always messes up my stomach, where the whole day after I can’t eat anything"
Pros: "The airplane is clean, toilets are super nice! Service is very good, legroom is adequate. I like the rice dishes on board. Overall, excellent."
Pros: "It was pretty comfortable for a 14hour flight and all the flight attendants were super nice and very helpful. Different then most airlines in my opinion. Next time I go to Japan it will be with Japan Airlines no doubt!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like Was leaving the plane."
Pros: "Met a very nice Taiwanese sitting next to me. We spoke the entire trip."
Pros: "Comfortable and service was pleasant"
Cons: "Like all of it except lack of vegetarian option for food"
Cons: "Airplan so old and ac not work super hot."
Pros: "All were very polite and were very through when checking the cabin before departure and landing"
Pros: "The Japanese know how to service their customers, five stars all the way. The food and drinks (beer) helped too"
Cons: "The video monitor for viewing movies was dated."
Pros: "Everything bad"
Cons: "Bad customer service, I don't speak English good , can't understand them jet blue"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. No wifi. Need to upgrade the plane. No seats for economy plus or business class available. Will never fly with Japan airlines again!"
Pros: "The flights were generally ok. Flying coach.."
Cons: "My round trip had a total of 5 legs.. I had to get my luggage at every stop. I only had one destination so I was not expecting to get my luggage at every stop."
Pros: "Wonderful flight...so great getting premium economy...so comfortable...crew and food were great....one of the best long flights ever!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and solicitous and helpful. This is my third trip with JAL and I. Happy about it."
Pros: "Enjoyed the greeting, politeness and food"
Cons: "More English speaking would be preferred"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "First time fly with JAL, friendly flight attendants, excellent seat space, would fly with JAL again."
Cons: "I never like flying into Narita - each time I have to have my boarding pass reissued and baggage rechecked. I like the YVR process where you just put your bags on a conveyor after clearing customs."
Pros: "The seats were roomier than expected, the food was delicious and everyone was very professional and friendly. I picked up this flight because JAL is a partner for AA and I'm so glad I did. I will fly them again."
Pros: "They were super considerate the entire flight."
Pros: "JAL service is always the best Flight attendance are the always, always, awesome. Seats together were found at checkin"
Cons: "Movie selection was not so good No Wifi inbound or outbound 777 Almost nonstop babies crying the whole flight Seat selection on the website is not user friendly, and you cannot get seats books until 72 hours before flight and usually 9 out of 10 times I find I cannot find 2 seats together until airport checkin."
Pros: "Everything from check in till I got off the plane was fantastic. Friendly and helpful crew with impeccable service unlike a certain few airlines. Will definitely use JAL again!"
Cons: "Can't think of any"
Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "Love Jan service!!!"
Pros: "Meals at good times during the flight, complimentary wine served, comfortable seats. Overall better than any other airline for economy class. Enough leg room, good attention, never felt like I was riding a crowded city bus as on typical one distance economy class. Worth paying a little more for being treated like a human"
Cons: "I did have any negatives on this flight"
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "difficulty in figuring out how to use the controls on the entertainment remote"
Pros: "During the flight the air hostesses we're constantly attending to passengers. Excellent flight."
Pros: "I had only 30 minutes transaction time at Busan airport, and was not sure that I could catch my plane. The crew at the airport were very helpful, and a lady brought me to the security gate, and run out and checking in for me. With their help, I was able to catch the planes and arrived my destination on schedule. Thank you so much."
Pros: "everything is much better, everything! including how boarding and de-planing is more orderly than most other flights."
Pros: "great service and help with everything!!"
Pros: "Courtesy of crew members"
Cons: "No vegetarian food available"
Pros: "Wonderful crew..nice plane and comfortable seats!"
Cons: "No inseat power or usb on the monitor"
Cons: "slow service, inconsistent, they skipped my row for service???"
Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "The willingness to provide a better quality service by the entire cabin crew and improved food quality."
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "The crew and the service"
Pros: "Crew were amazing and great entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Cons: "Entertainment and access to Wifi"
Pros: "They passed by me when they served the meals because they thought I had it already which it was someone behind me who got his meal since he had a special meal request. So I ended up to talk to them that I haven’t had my meal yet. It was embarrassing moment for me. They seemed thinking that I lied to them."
Cons: "They are well trained crews so I have no better ideas about improvements"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Meal was disappointing. Beef was overcook and hard. Service quality is just okay."
Cons: "This time Singapore Airlines Staff seem to be not so helpful. Previously they were happy to help with smiling face and approachable immediately. This time in spite of asking for help in the cabin no one turned up even after multiple requests. I could only get help when someone one walks next to me."
Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"
Cons: "They are doing excelent job."
Pros: "The crew Were exceptional ."
Cons: "If The seat recline could go down a bit more innpremium economy, that would be perfect"

Pros: "Crew amazing. Seat super comfortable"
Cons: "My moslem meal selection wasn’t provided onboard"
Pros: "Couldn't find a problem"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional and the amenities were top notch."
Cons: "There wasn't enough leg room. My knees touched the chair in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"
Pros: "Scoot employees were really helpful, I missed my flight from Singapore to Kochi because by the time the passengers got off the flight and went through immigration in Singapore, the check in counter had closed, and there was no more flights available to Kochi until 2 days later. The employees made sure I boarded my flight and I came home to my sister’s wedding"
Cons: "Kayak doesn’t specify its two separate tickets for my destination to kochi from Honolulu, also they didn’t specify their would be a stop in Japan before the flight reached Singapore. The flights were delayed by a few minutes, which led to me stressing to make it on time to my flights, and I felt dehydrated and nauseous. Also the website doesn’t specify that we will have to purchase meals either before hand or on board, and that the airlines only took cash and no credit card. It was miserable, a whole 20+ hour flight with lots of stress of catching my flight, checking and the checking my baggage, and being hungry and thirsty because I didn’t carry enough cash on me."
Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"
Pros: "Excellent attention to service and comfort."
Pros: "Amazing service!"
Pros: "First class service with economy prices via Kayak! Blankets, pillows, full meals, snacks, entertainment, hot towels before take off and landing. The crew is always spot on! I love Singapore airlines!"
Cons: "Some staff not courteous which surprised me"
Pros: "But I got to take Qatar airline and the service was great"
Cons: "Almost missed the flight, havent noticed the passengers in prior"
Pros: "The cabin crew was great."
Cons: "1. Flight seats are too congested on flight.. 2. Not too many indian movie choices 3. Some reason, while booking the flight, the KAYAK site had not asked for food choice. And the airline does not carry any extra vegetarian food. This had caused some inconvenience."
Pros: "Loved the hot towel service"
Cons: "Entertainment could be better, however there were a few new and Oscar nominated movies available. Personal air conditioning would be great, I was too hot the entire flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not as good as they were once"
Pros: "Great crew, good food (best I've had on an airplane), plenty of drinks, and a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket without realizing that the law stipulated 6-month validity remaining on one's US passport to enter singapore. The Singapore Airways website does not state this anywhere, and it was not until I arrived at the airport that I was informed that I wouldn't be able to check in, but nor could I refund or transfer the ticket. The booker should be obliged, when one enters the passport information upon purchasing the ticket, to make note if the passport expiration time is not valid for the flight. Spent $600+ on the flight, and the customer service person I spoke to from the airport was very abrasive and not interested in helping me figure out an alternative."
Pros: "Wonderful and warm crew made me feel at home. Loads of entertainment but best of all, comfortable seat/bed allowed for a goodnight's sleep!"
Pros: "The service and the flight to and from Narita Airport."
Pros: "Is Singapore Airlines food quality slipping? First time I’ve been really unenthusiastic about it..."
Pros: "The crew was really great, so friendly and accommodating. I wasn't able to order a vegetarian meal ahead of time, but they still gave me one on board when I asked. There was an amazing selection of movies and they refilled my drinks without even asking. I would recommend this airline to anyone traveling to Asia."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"
Pros: "Good reliable SQ service"
Cons: "I got the seat with communications box on the floor under the seat in front... no foot room :-("
Pros: "Just a generic flight. Had nice movies but nothing special."
Cons: "I felt very cramped and though it's nothing with the airline I had 2 crying babies right near me during the flight."
Pros: "Everything was outstanding. The cleanliness of the airplane, the food, the friendliness of the crew, I just can't say enough good things about my experience flying on Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "The food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"
Cons: "Th entertainment system was old and tiny. Think watching VHS video tapes on a five inch screen. I think my phone screen was wider."
Pros: "Great flight amazing service"
Pros: "Everything else was good"
Cons: "Old aircraft with tired looking seats."
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Cons: "On my trip to Japan, the staff was incredibly rude. Horrible commendations. The controls didn't work. And the desert had mold in it."
Pros: "Excellent crew, efficient processes and overall relaxing"
Cons: "Old business class hard product. Seats can't be adjusted much and the bed is too short due to small head- and footwell."
Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Pros: "Did not enjoy the vegetarian menu -cold noodles not appealing. Alcoholic drinks very hard to obtain .. orders taken but not received. Service was friendly though"
Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."
Pros: "Amazing crew, great service. Really good food"
Pros: "Customer service , crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was terrible out of MEL.. Didn't have any choice at all.. Tasteless , should improve"
Pros: "Thanks once again for a comfortable flight homs"
Pros: "uncomfortable compared to the other flights"
Cons: "My flight time was changed but I didn’t receive any email regarding the change of the flight"
Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but space was narrow"
Cons: "Please give space between front and back seats"
Pros: "Luxury, comfort and hospitality"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"
Pros: "Entertainment, crew was very hard-working."
Cons: "Economy seats are way too tight, had severe problems with knee room when seat in front was reclined. A terrible passenger just forward of me had no regard to this issue and refused to be cooperative. Food was lukewarm at best and was on mildly appetizing in economy."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No tv monitors or any entertainment"
Pros: "Service was great for such a long flight. It would be good to have like a snack bar for people to purchase snacks."
Cons: "The wedsite for Qatar could use some work."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Cons: "Food is good except Chicken coconut curry"
Pros: "Attentive service - woke me up before landing (as instructed) and served a meal."
Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."
Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"
Pros: "Always fun flying with them."
Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"
Pros: "Crew was helpful On Time Flight Clean aircraft Good food"
Cons: "seat was not much comfortable"
Cons: "The electronics ban on US-bound flights was handled poorly in Doha, resulting in multiple passes through the security check for many passengers, including two in my party. It left a bad impression that lingered, unfortunately."
Cons: "The seats were particularly narrow and uncomfortable on this flight. Quality of food used to be better."
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"
Cons: "The process of checking in is difficult because qatar codes are different from asiana, therefore I couldn't do an online check in."
Cons: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."
Pros: "Great take off and landing. Nice comfort packet, blanket, and pillow Good service and spacious seating in economy class."
Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"
Pros: "A comfortable safe flight. Steph was very helpful and nice and kept us updated when there was a delay on the flight. There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"
Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg space and overall ambience of the cabin."
Cons: "I pre ordered Hindu meal. The meal selection by the airline was same from Karachi-Doha and Doha-Chicago. There was no choice of menu in the meal on such a long flight. Moreover taste of offered food was not satisfactory."
Pros: "The crew was extremely professional. The stewards were beautiful and young not like on US flights.."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, My tail bone was hurting badly and sitting on pillows did not provide any relief. The food was terriable. Not much choice."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."
Pros: "Everything was great except the plane from Doha to Beirut it was too small with no seat screens and bad c music channels and non-comfortable seats !! :( otherwise everything was great !! I like Qatar airlines and don't hesitate to travel with them again Thank you"
Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Pros: "Service always attentive , availability of food on demand outside scheduled meals ."
Cons: "Film selection outdated , I flew in April and the WORLD movies had not changed much Aircraft not as good as more recent ones"
Pros: "After long takeoff delay, made up most of time to land less delayed. Bagge arrived more quickly than I EVER experienced a Hamad Airport."
Cons: "Boarding started very late so we knew takeoff would be delayed. Flight attendant woke me up from sleep to ask if I wanted breakfast."
Cons: "Service and media"
Pros: "Crew was good and mostly attentive."
Cons: "Had to move seat three times because the audio/video didn’t work in my seat. Was very frustrating"
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES DURING A PANDEMIC. They were not keeping folks distanced from each other, they did not make sure that all the passengers had masks (I understand that people might take them off in flight briefly to drink etc but there were people that walked right on without masks on at all) The flight was FULL. They did a full drink/snack down the aisle thing ensuring that everyone packed into that small space would all be taking off their masks at the same time (if they still had it on in the first place). I did not feel safe at all."
Pros: "I got there safe!"
Cons: "I f plane had slowed downed during turbulence."
Pros: "I got an unexpected box lunch. Food was good. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats were cramped. A little more elbow room would be welcome."
Cons: "The flight had an emergency oxygen failure an hour into the flight, so we had to turn around and go back to the departure city for 4 hours. Extremely annoying on an overnight flight."
Pros: "On Time Departure / Early Arrival. Pleasant Crew"
Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."
Pros: "It was a safe flight back to the Phoenix thank you."
Cons: "More ethical vegan options."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, decent entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "No AC, and after boarding there was an issue with the; we had to deboard and wait nearly an hour to load onto another plane."
Cons: "The entire entertainment system was down the entire 6 hour flight. Crew attempted to reboot the system several times with no luck."
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Cons: "The flight from Charlotte to Jacksonville denied 4 passengers boarding due to a weight restriction being met during the boarding process. There were no more same day flights available and staff was confused about how to resolve the issue."
Cons: "Because our first flight was delayed over 4 hours we missed our connection and had to be re-booked on the only other flight that still had seats that day. We had previously booked and paid for Main Cabin extra seats in the second row that included extra leg room and free drinks. We ended in an airplane with two exit rows, one near the front and the other near the back. Our seats were right behind the rear exit row in the back of the plane. The seats did not recline and there was limited leg look because the exit row seats were aligned differently due to the crew seat next to the door. Also, the bathroom was right in front of the row in front of us and so it was busy, noisy and smelled. Obviously we didn't get our free drinks either. Now I'm having to fight with American trying to get a refund of the money we spent for the Main Cabin extra fees. The fun never stops. I will never fly American again."
Pros: "Good entertainment. Gate agents friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Pros: "The seats seem to be shrinking. The flight was flawless."
Cons: "Tight seats, but I guess that is going to be the norm now."
Pros: "Everything went smooth and fast"
Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time. Modern plane. Got the sense that careful aircraft maintenance is always a high priority. Courteous attendants. Large choice of movies."
Cons: "Blankets but no pillows on this long red-eye. We need a pillow! Wrap was a bit doughy. no choices."
Pros: "Efficient, nice crew."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Terrible situation for a long flight."
Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"
Cons: "It wasn't Cathy Pacific operation."
Pros: "seemed more comfortable on this plane, still squishy."
Cons: "really.. a 6 hour flight with just a cookie.."
Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Cons: "My luggage was inexplicably placed on a later flight which arrived an hour after my flight arrived."
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Cons: "Employees seemed like they didn’t like working for American. Flight was delayed and nobody informed us about it until it was past the past the boarding time. Missed connecting flight and booked on flight 5 hours past original departure time. Sat in an aisle seat and stewardess kept bumping my arms."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Pros: "Great movie/entertainment selections and the food was very tasty."
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Cons: "My seat was broken and wouldn't recline very much at all."
Pros: "The meals were good and the flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. The seat my husband was sitting in (30A window seat), the touch screen seemed to have some technical issues, for it did not recognize when you touch the screen. It was a bit frustrating trying to select entertainment. Also, when checking in from our original departure location, MCO, we were not provided our boarding pass or luggage tags for our final destination, Barcelona, only to our connecting flight, Philadelphia. The connecting flight was delayed in MCO for an 1 hour and a half, after we have boarded the plane, therefore almost cost us to be late for our final flight to Barcelona. Since we were not given our boarding passes for PHL to BCL it caused confusion when trying to board our plane in PHL to Barcelona, and also caused for our baggage to not arrive with the flight. After landing, we spent an additional 2 hours at the Airport going through customs, and waiting on line for the lost and found desk for baggage in Barcelona. The lost and found desk had three agents available to assist, however we can only talk to one which was designated specifically for American Airlines. This caused a very long wait time of 1 hour. We were advised the bags stayed in Phildelaphia since they did not have the additional luggage tags, and will not arrive till the next day. Overall the experience within the Airport service desks and baggage check in' s was not a pleasant experience. I believe many of these issues could have been avoided if the American Airlines agents were more knowledgeable and attentive."
Pros: "The entertainment was a new release movie - liked that. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, especially for a 7 hour trip! My tray table broke and would not close. I informed a stewardess and she apologized for the inconvenience and did her best to duct tape it shut (twice). It's an old plane, I would not recommend for a flight more than 2 hours. Wasn't greeted at boarding. Had to interrupt staff to ask which side of plane I should walk down to get to my seat. I paid extra for 12th row - waste of money!"
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and movie selection was excellent. They did not provide headphones however. Boo."
Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."
Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"
Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
Pros: "TV and on time flight"
The air temperature could've been better. It was really hot the whole flight. No free snacks or food offered for a 6.5 hr flight. Drinks were only offered once.
Pros: "Movie options were good. Nothing else."
Cons: "The flight did not wait for me due to the 1st flight delay."
Pros: "Crew, seats and entertainment. Unfortunately a rude passenger in front that put their seat back too far and refused to compromise so didn’t have much leg room over a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Ran out of half the food options halfway down the plane."
Pros: "Timely. Best entertainment."
Cons: "Very disappointed with the seat. Then placed us next to women with children. No rest for us at all. Also no blankets provided. Others had."
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "there were two really rude flight attendants....almost like they didn;t want to serve you. One of the ladies even literally threw a drink onto my tray. thank god it was sealed. Air canada needs to do a better job of dealing with this type of behaviour. It happens far too often with their staff"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Honolulu. This made Customs and Screening stressful...as there was only 45 minutes to get through and then to the gate. No one advised that there was another plane shortly, which would have reduced the feeling that we had to sprint down to the gate. Otherwise a very good flight"
Pros: "Slight delay due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "AC was aware of flight delay due to computer system failure which caused missed flight connections for passengers and yet there was only one customer service rep at the counter in the Toronto Pearson airport to provide directions to stranded and confused passengers when AC1621 landed at 12:30pm on March 13 from Fort Lauderdale. After waiting in line at customer service for more than an hour, I was told I was booked for 9am flight the next day. I was with 2 kids, no options were explained about an overnight stay. The rep put me on standby and said they were flights every hour and told me to wait for next flight. Again no further explanations about standby, I was going from one gate to the next for 3 hours and I wasn't called. When I asked the agent, she asked me to wait. Finally a fellow passenger told me to check with agent at the next gate. That agent found out the cs rep put my family on standby but put a Nonexisting flight #202. So I was never called. I didn't pay money to get this kind of poor service. All I wanted was the basics, get me home without confusion. What a shame Air Canada! Our national pride is on the line. It should be named Air Nada cause no cs whatsoever. Bad management is to blame. Train your staff and hire qualified people to handle tech dept. We have no control over weather but tech backup is worth investing to prevent tech system issues."
Cons: "24 hour delay due to mechanical issues"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite but didn’t go out of their way to help out."
Cons: "No room to store carry on and nobody seemed to care that all space was taken close to our seats. We felt penalized because others abused the system while we were trying to follow the rules."
Pros: "getting of the plane!"
Cons: "the bed bugs, no lights, no comfort, the cold, very limited service"
Pros: "Good flight, great crew members. Seats were comfortable and there were good entertainment options."
Pros: "we had to pay for everything"
Pros: "Arrived at destination"
Cons: "Ground crew were horrible and unnecessarily rude It’s difficult to deal with hoards of people, I get it, but we were pleasant and cheerful and were treated with harsh indifference, decided to seek another agent and he was dismissive Everyone was treated like they were annoying and troublesome children! If AC would just find nice people who have a hint of compassion we’d accept being late and squashed"
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled in toronto Lester B Pearson Airport due to a snow storm and we were stuck in the airport for almost 24 hours and we werent even offered a hotel for the night. So we decided to book a hotel for the night through Kayak and paid over $200. Went to the hotel and were told there were no more rooms available until the next day. We called kayak customer support and they wouldn't refund our money!! Horrible experience never again! Never flying Air Canada again !!"
Pros: "Seats in business."
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "Close to a 4 hour delay. No explanation."
Cons: "Delayed as always"
Pros: "The waiting room before boarding was big and comfortable. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Children running around because there wasn't anything to do. Passengers ignoring no food and drink signs. A passenger had a nut allergy so no food could be eaten or served with nuts. I understand this serious health risk, but passengers need to be handed out free of charge crackers or cookies if they were counting on eating their own snack. Passengers were putting both their carry on and personal item in the over head storage and therefore there wasn't enough storage for those would only wished to store one item."
Cons: "I only had one gripe about this flight and my one other flight on Air Canada Rouge; the overhead bins are very poorly designed. I purchased a carry on bag specifically to meet their regs, yet it had it go in the bin longways, taking up a ton of room. The bins are tall, which is wasted space, when what they really need is another 1-2" in depth."
Pros: "Food, cocktails"
Cons: "Crowded, bumpy flight"
Pros: "Flight from Windsor to Toronto wa good. The connecting flight was cancelled and the next flights was over booked so we had to over night in Toronto. Then get up at 530 to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough."
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."
Cons: "Check in was slow and confusing."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Touch screens were broken"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, and the boarding and de-planing process went smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was really cold, and we were told that they couldn't adjust the temperature, but we could have a blanket - at a cost. We have heard from other people who travelled Rouge about how cold their flight was, too. I also didn't realize that there wouldn't be in-flight movies - unless you rented an i-pad, etc. That was a bit disappointing for a 6-hour flight. I think that I would rather have paid a little higher fee for the flight and have some of the things built into the ticket than have to keep paying out money for all the different things."
Pros: "We were upgraded to business class and received wonderful service by all crew members."
Pros: "The privacy of the person was honored"
Cons: "Having to stop. We were not told our luggage would not have to be transported through customs"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats are extremely small and cramped. Temperature was too cold during the flight and there wasn't even a fan on so it was the cabin temperature which couldn't be adjusted. In addition No blankets or cushions were provided. The leg room was horrible. I'm only 5'5" and I felt cramped, so I can't imagine how it would feel for someone taller. also, no one checked bags due to the newly imposed fee so everyone crammed their luggage into the overhead compartments and many of us had no room to store our carry-ons and had to put it below our seats, causing even less leg room. the Hawaiian airport also locked out the waiting area for international flights back to Vancouver due to some policy that the area must be locked down until the plane has arrived and everyone is off the plane. Many of us were sitting on the ground outside in the non-air conditioned hallway in front of the stores like homeless people for over 2 hours. Luckily seniors were sitting on wheelchairs and did not have to wait while standing or sitting on the ground. They finally let us in 20 minutes before boarding but really by then it made no difference."
Pros: "I really liked that we could board through the rear door because it made it so much faster. The staff were all very friendly."
Cons: "I downloaded the Air Canada app but the movie selection was not very good. Also, people take way to long to store their carry on luggage."
Pros: "We checked in online and were able to very quickly and efficiently check our bags and board."
Cons: "We did not have in flight entertainment. We had to pay $10 to rent an iPad."
Cons: "Not even one single snack for free"
Pros: "Crew is quite young and friendly.. good service. Boarding was quick and easy. Blanket and neck pillow package were comfy and worth the $7"
Cons: "The plane was FREEZING and the seats are a bit cramped."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine, free WiFi on board, movies to watch, stewards and stewardesses on board were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "I was originally flying WestJet, and the 7:05 AM flight I booked was cancelled. I hopped online and booked the 8:10 AM flight via Air Canada back to Boston. First, the flight was oversold, so only AFTER I was able to check my bag did I learn that I was flying stand-by. Completely nerve wracking. If I had known in advance I would have booked with another airline. I was able to get on the flight thanks to some volunteers who gave up their seats on the 8:10 AM flight for the next flight out (10:10 AM) in return for some monetary compensation. I arrived in Boston, and after waiting for 45 minutes, I learned my bag was put on the 10:10 AM flight rather than the 10:10 AM flight, but only after dealing with a snappy and disrespectful check-in attendant that seemed to not believe me that my bags indeed did not arrive. The office for baggage services for Air Canada was vacant and locked next to the carousel. Myself and a couple of other travelers, upon getting to the check-in counter and explaining the situation mistakenly lumped us all together and said "okay so you're all traveling together and your bags need to go the same place". Me: "No, that's incorrect, we are not related or traveling together, we just all have the same issue--none of our bags have arrived". Other Air Canada representative, who up to this point had not been involved in the exchange: "She didn't ask you if you were related, she asked you if your bags were lost" and then proceeded to roll her eyes and walk away from the counter. I suppose she misinterpreted my concern for rudeness and felt the need to put me in my place. Granted, my early morning flight cancellation and the stress associated with flying standby had nothing to do with them, but the attitude I was given as a concerned traveler whose bag was potentially lost was completely unwarranted. Compounded with the frustration of the entire morning I cannot describe how infuriating this exchange added up to being. I was told my bag would be delivered to my home by 4 PM that day. No bag. Got a phone call at 7 PM - they'd be there in the next hour. 10:00 PM and going to bed: No bag. I gave up and prepared to make a claim in the morning. 8:30 AM Sunday morning - my bag is sitting on my front porch wrapped in a trash bag. What a fiasco."
Pros: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "Old plane, broken headphone jack, ignorant cew"
Pros: "Once we got in the air, the flight was a short 35 minutes and fine."
Pros: "Fast boarding and unboarding"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight and Air Canads charged me $300! They said thy had some 'peak days' fee (August) and a 'weekend' fee, which covers Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 3 day weekend??! Come on, what a scam. Just charge me the flat change fee not all these bullshit greedy add-ons."
Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Horrible seats"
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Coach seating on the 777 is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "I liked that they were quick and nice service."
Cons: "No games for entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was average."
Cons: "Not all food available on the food catalog menu."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. At some point we boarded the plane then asked to disembark it as we were still not ready for take off. They told us there were some weather issues in Toronto ... I looked at 3 different weather channels who said that the weather was mostly clear in Toronto with a few scattered showers."
Pros: "Plane was late due to Stewart missing the bus from their hotel?...seriously unprofessional and the check in staff lying to customers to accommodate others customers from an undeparted flight from the night before?...attempting to change my flight due to this?...seriously need to do better Air Canada...and to top it all off you are served by a snotty unprofessional group of stewards?....a huge JOKE!....won't be flying this airline again and I will be spreading the word!"
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."
Pros: "Wide seats."
Cons: "Small leg space. No window by seat. The seating map did not make this known, otherwise I would have chosen another seat."
Pros: "Entertainment system was nice and I had a good seat on the aisle with no one in the middle, which was lucky."
Cons: "Getting checked in London was a pain. Air Canada had changed my original flight over (a change I wasn't happy with) and then when I got to LHR had marked my record for a change fee! Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Crew was generally inattentive, absent, and hardly friendly. At one point I was instructed how to load my (tiny) food tray properly after the meal. I am sorry but you are working for the airline and I am paying for service, which I didn't get."
Pros: "The flight left on time, and arrived on time."
Cons: "While seating in the seats I booked months in advance, my partner and I were presumptively requested to change seats to accommodate a 5 year old and their parent. What frustrated me was the negligence displayed by the flight attendants who didn't ask if my partner and I were traveling together to accommodate a passenger who clearly booked at the gate. Although it was not ideal for the attendants, flight attendants should always as if folks are traveling together "before" assuming a passenger is okay with relocating from their loved ones. It display respects for everyone flying."
