The crew at the check-in counter was super-helpful and exceptionally kind.

Pros: "At least it was delayed so we could make it to SFO."
Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed so the delayed flight from Honolulu could make it to Los Angeles and not subject AA to additional complaints. We arrived at close to midnight and worried about getting the car out of the parking lot without incurring additional charges of and additional day. The food was not great."
Pros: "JAL lounge at Haneda was the best I've ever been in. The Business Class configuration is terrific -- as private as can be on an airplane, without going First. And the JAL staff, on the ground as well as in the air, are Grade A diplomats, counselors, and -- in a word -- professionals. Which is sorely lacking in US air carriers, who don't seem to understand that air travel is a service industry, and to excel in a service industry, PEOPLE are most important to the customers. Specifically, having enough people: US airline employees are well-trained professionals too, but "corporate" consistently under-hires/deploys, which leaves employees juggling far too much at once, which degrades the service experience for the customer. Yeah, I get "the bottom line," but service industry customers will always go to businesses that offer better service. Ok, rant over. JAL is tops."
Cons: "Security and Immigration at Tokyo Haneda is harder than at US airports, but that's to be expected and nothing that JAL can control."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and did a great job. Comfy seat. Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Flight in general was uneventful which is a good thing."
Cons: "Nothing to criticize. Flight experience was good but not exordinary."
Pros: "From the food (dinner and lunch), to the spacious seats, to the impressive beverage selection, there is little I would change. The small touches, including coming through the cabin regularly with delicious green tea, made this a wonderful flight."
Pros: "Food was amazing. But Yoshinoya wasn't a good idea, I do not eat beef."
Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Cons: "nothing!"
Pros: "Best service and food among a few hundred flights I have taken so far. CAs were always courteous. They are smiling to each other and looked happy. It was really nice to see that."
Cons: "When booking the flights, I didn't know that I wasn't able to reserve a seat until check-in at the airport. Even usual online check-in was available for my ticket. I might have not purchased this ticket if I knew this limitation. It would be nice to know it at the time of booking."
Pros: "Staff and service good"
Cons: "777-300 plane business class very old and tired"
Pros: "Boarding was quick as i've come to expect from DFW."
Cons: "I bought economy to save money, but unfortunately since I got the very back of the plane my seat couldn't recline."
Pros: "Food and beverages were served promptly. Moreover there were several rounds of coffee and tea service so that I never went thirsty. My economy seating was still given first class service."
Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"
Pros: "I always like to fly JAL because of their excellent customer service. Very comfortable flight, too. Very smooth take-off and landing."
Pros: "Liked creative approaches with the meals, with new/different menu - some room for improvements but generally good Loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Found the seats hard and uncomfortable after a few hours although the leg space was more generous in economy than United/ANA"
Pros: "The flight crew were very attentive, polite, and full of genuine smiles."
Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "It was a great flight!"
Pros: "They give a lot of food and the 12 hour flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Limited selection for entertainment"
Pros: "The Economy class seats had a lot of room - which is unusual for tall people ;-)"
Pros: "Food is better than most other airlines. Seamless check in and boarding"
Cons: "Seating space is quite cramped"
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!"
Cons: "This is a kayak feedback - I thought I bought a cathay/jal flight. Well I was out of luck when I tried to fix situation. Broker in between introduce by website made it impossible to rebook flight in practice. Those website are very practical to look for flights but unless they give you the company direct you are better off switching to company site and book it there. Broker not equipped to be of any help."
Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"
Pros: "Crew service is adequate. There's not much to complain about. Also I like they always put extra stuff on a table in the back, in case any passenger want to get extra between meals."
Cons: "The aisle is getting narrower and narrower. I sat by the aisle, and my elbow sometimes got in the way inadvertently or unintentionally."
Pros: "All was efficient but no standout"
Cons: "Nothing was bad enough to mention this column"
Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."
Pros: "Clean :)"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. More space between seats. Pleasant, eager to please cabin crew. Good movie choices."
Cons: "The food was no better than any other airplane food."
Pros: "Nothing really special."
Cons: "They love the PA system. They want to make announcements in multiple languages all the time."
Pros: "Great service and comfort. Great food. On time."
Cons: "Outgoing plane was older and had stains on the chairs, walls, etc. But still comfortable."
Pros: "Crew did a first-rate job, and space in economy seating was civilized. Snacks and juices were tasty and plentiful. Bathrooms were spacious and waits for access were manageable. Television screens and headphones in economy were easy to use and reproduced video and audio content well. Overhead storage space was adequate, even for an almost fully-booked flight whose passengers relied upon it very heavily."
Cons: "One of my vegetarian meals (the larger of the two) wasn't vegetarian. This was astonishing -- a first for me in more than twenty years of flights across the Pacific. Not once have I had a vegetarian meal that included chicken, but that is just what was served to me on this flight; I was obliged to spit it out, and to wash my mouth afterwards. The selection of films offered was demoralizingly poor, and the seatback pockets afforded even less storage space than usual."
Pros: "Everything from delicious Japanese cuisine to attentive and courteous customer service from ground crew to flight crew greatly impressed our family. Being able to fly to Haneda is even better. We plan to fly JAL from now on."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "flight attendants are always nice and gentle on JAL. Food is great. Rarely late departures"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Economy seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. What a difference that makes."
Cons: "Movies available tended to be either action/terror/suspense, or old movies. Very few real dramas."
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Pros: "Comfort seat, decent food, polite service"
Cons: "Food is not that good"
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy and the seat was comfortable. However the food was lacking. The snack was a collection of overly sweet bars and bread. The meal was okay."
Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"
Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."
Pros: "Service & seats are great."
Cons: "The connections were a bit late, making the long trip longer!"
Pros: "The upgraded seating."
Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."
Pros: "Cathay and JAL Provided excellent customer service throughout the the flight. Everyone did an excellent job and went out of their way to make sure I made flights and had what I needed."
Cons: "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
Pros: "Attention given to each passenger by flight crew."
Pros: "The crew was very well mannered."
Cons: "Trying to find the JAL counter at Hong Kong International Airport. There is no counter for this flight since it is run by Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "For a red eye flight we still got fed a lunch box."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom and nice updated interior."
Cons: "No complaints this time."
Pros: "Cheapflights ..I will book my ticket from you again.. I am so delighted."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Amazing service"
Pros: "Attentive crew !"
Cons: "add low carb meal option please!"
Pros: "Speeding of departure after boarding"
Cons: "Flight delayed again. Flight was delayed due to “preparations “ but the plane was at the gate for 3 hours before boarding. Did not make sense. Flight was warm in the plane."
Pros: "Loved the Kabuki actors used for safety instructional video - stay for the ending credits!"
Cons: "Boarding felt like a standing cattle call. Some - not all - stews acted as though they were insulted to have to provide food and beverage service, as though they were too tired and/or impatient to deal w/ economy class."
Pros: "Entertainment offerings were good."
Cons: "I booked the flight thinking it was with ANA , it was on United which is a full step below in quality. My bad!"

Pros: "Typical ANA quality. Bumpy flight but handled very well."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Not enough space to put my luggages"
Cons: "The flight left late and it was extremely hot in the cabin. It was a good thing that our connecting flight was a couple of doors down or we would not have made it, we sat on the runway waiting for our turn"
Pros: "The meals were healthy Japanese meals with lots of vegetables"
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."
Pros: "Excellent food. Very nice service."
Pros: "In-flight service, in-flight entertainment, environment temperature"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food and entertainment is great."
Cons: "The plane was a bit old, no bidet in the bathroom (the newer planes has it)"

Pros: "From communication on flight details to boarding to in-flight comfort, ANA rocked. The staff was so kind, seeing that we had what we needed. I didn't feel like a liability at all, and I think their approach to the work ensured a great flight experience for everyone."
Cons: "EVERY FRIGHT WAS DELAY, AND LOST BAGGAGE, AND MY SUITCASE WAS BROKEN!!!!"
Pros: "Very pleasant. I upgraded to economy plus so that was a bonus."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Very nice flight. The plane was in great shape and the stewardesses were very nice."
Pros: "I've flown to Asia many, many times and NH is the best of all the carriers I've used."
Pros: "flight attendant in business not as nice as sfo to narita"
Cons: "My suitcase was "lost" in Tokyo/Narita on the way to Shanghai. Don't know what happened. Got my luggage two days later. This isn't Kayak's fault. ANA should've done something to make this right."

Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food provided was tasteless"
Pros: "Young, pretty, and charming stewardesses. :-)"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to delays from first flight"
Pros: "Entertainment/video options were good. I was upgraded to Economy Plus, which meant significantly more legroom and more comfortable seats."
Cons: "I could not chose my seat for this flight. It was a HUGE hassle. Flew with boyfriend and we were automatically put in seats that were 20 rows apart. We could not choose our seats online, or at airport. We had to wait until we were at the boarding gates, and all of the seats were taken."
Pros: "I bought two very expensive tickets and the seats were blocked by the pilot for his family, so my son had to travel in the simple business, that is a lot cheaper"
Cons: "No personal screens, and the United flight crew seemed very impatient with me and others."
Cons: "no"
Pros: "They automatically moved my luggage to the next plane. No need to go through customs in Tokyo."
Cons: "The Price."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. We almost missed our flight! Be prepared for security, immigration, then shuttle to your gate. Don't get distracted by the good cheap eats, and omiyage!"
Cons: "United Food for international flights is not that good. I've had better with Delta."
Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "No in-seat screens. Wifi-based entertainment system makes sense but is buggy and makes it hard to watch a movie all the way through. Also, no power for keeping device charged while using the entertainment service."
Pros: "Crew were extra polite"
Cons: "Two-hour delay nearly caused me to miss connection"
Cons: "Usually offer water at your seat repeatedly. Only one time in 11 hour flight? Corona prevention?"
Pros: "EVA does a nice job getting all of the service out and making sure you have everything you want."
Cons: "If you are a big guy upgrade to exit row or economy plus. This is an airline that doesn’t generally serve people that are over 6’ or 200 lbs."
Pros: "Crew was great. Economy seat was like any economy seat on an airplane. The seats recline more than others I have flown on. The only thing that I liked was that the plane was not filled and I could stretch out a bit on some empty seats."
Cons: "The food was horrible."
Pros: "I loved the fact that once I got to Taipei I had a very short layover and back to SFO. Awesome"
Pros: "Flight perfectly on time. Crew not too friendly (Chinese style), but attentive and helpful."
Cons: "On this B777-300, the large Economy Premium is not quite up to the standard of other airlines flying the same model. The tray table, stored in the arm-rest on all rows, is tiny, and opens only a few inches, not enough for pregnant women or gentlemen with some mid-section padding. I could not use it at all, and had to balance my meals on my knees. Besides, when the passenger in front reclines his/her seat, the seat invades totally the space of the passenger in the back. I felt the passenger was resting on my lap. Forget using a laptop, or even reading a book: just watch your screen, a couple inches from your nose. Good for short-sighted people only! I tried EVA and was disappointed. I'll go back to my preferred airline, Vietnam Airlines."
Pros: "Great champagne. Good food. Good movie selection. Great seat. Pajamas."
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent airline."
Pros: "They let me sleep during dinner"
Cons: "It would have been nice to be given an aisle that had some empty seats because I have long legs"
Pros: "Crew and seat."
Cons: "Larger seat."
Pros: "The crew members were good but the seat is small with not much of leg room. Foods were suck & not appearing"

Pros: "Great crew and nice comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Great service from flight staff."

Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Seat was ok"
Cons: "Everything could have been better"
Pros: "Self-service crackers, drinks."
Cons: "Self-selecting seat system is confusing and needs to be improved."
Pros: "How much are you going to pay me?"
Cons: "F seriously my time is valuable"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Flight late"
Pros: "First time flying EVA. They made it easy!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "I was lucky enough to have extra seats next to me so I slept well on the plane. I appreciated how friendly the stewardesses were, and also the ease of boarding, the prompt food service, and cleainess of the plane (and restrooms too)"
Cons: "The dining options were ok, not particularly wonderful, but overall pretty good."
Pros: "Departure and arrival time"
Cons: "Meal"
Pros: "I was happy to be back on EVA after a bad experience on Thai Air."
Cons: "That I was not compensated in any way for my previous flight BR68 from Bangkok to Taiwan that was cancelled. I was put into another airline barely in time that had poor food, no entertainment & smaller seats. Waiting for EVA to respond with some sort of compensation so I don't have to switch airlines. ANA is looking really good right now."
Pros: "Good food, attentive staff,but entertainment need a little upgrade . Overall it was good"
Pros: "Crew services, boarding, on time"
Cons: "Food and seat can be better"
Cons: "i wish they had better hygiene"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Seat are too small and have no legs room"
Pros: "I took the special meal for diabetes. It was a lot better than the regular one when i went to HONG KONG."
Pros: "In-town checkin at the Taipei main MTR station. Check in, luggage gets scanned and is taken from there to the airport. You just hop on the train with no luggage to haul with you."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the food was a shame"
Pros: "Great service by the crew / flight attendants! Good food (to me) We lucked out due to not a full flight"
Cons: "Limited entertainment selection (though we did find some interesting Asian films to watch ....)"
Pros: "Eva air is all about comfort, even if you use economy class. Right on schedule, staff is very accomidating, attentive and professional no matter where in the world you are. Flight meals are delicious... I had the best experiencie in flying with Eva air. Highly recommended."
Pros: "Helpful, professional, and friendly cabin crew, who are also easy on the eyes:) Individual movie screens."
Cons: "The food is mediocre at best. But it's no worse than most economy cabins. Need better movies."
Cons: "I have never sat in such terrible plane seats. First, there are FOUR seats but there are only THREE partitions at the bottom, meaning I had to share leg space and purse space with the stranger next to me. It's awkward enough sitting next to someone I don't know and having to worry about accidentally leaning on him when I fall asleep but having to constantly be in contact with his leg was very uncomfortable. I kind of got over it after awhile but I could tell the kid I was having leg time with was super uncomfortable since he would jerk his leg away every time it touched mine. Sorry to be harsh but I don't know how you're getting 9.0+ scores from the other customers. Yeah your flights are cheap but your seat options suck and the movies weren't good enough to make up for it. D+. You get what you pay for I suppose but your tix weren't that much different from the other more comfortable airlines."
Pros: "The service is good!!!"
Pros: "Good leg room and seats are comfortable. Food was better than most airplane food. Entertainment system was great as well!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were obnoxious about window shades. They could have come around with water a little more frequently as well."
Pros: "Very good. Staff is great"
Cons: "Need more water available throughout flight"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "20'' wide seat & 38'' pitch meal choices Great IFE"
Cons: "very crowed flight not enough choice left when reach my row (24A & B) ambient temperature too warm"
Pros: "Nice airplane! Loved the movie selections and the meals. Exceptional service!"
Pros: "Clean. On time. Efficient friendly service."
Cons: "Limited selection of films. Food was really bland. I expected much more from EVA. Disappointed. No in between meals snack offered. No comfort pouch offered (tooth brush, face mask, ear plugs, etc)."
Pros: "Crew is very professional and helpful. Really love the international movie selection. Food is good."
Cons: "They just seem overworked and perhaps that is why they don't smile as much as I would expect. I wished there is a way to be more environmental with the plastic cups. Perhaps give everybody a re-useable cup in the beginning and we keep it throughout the flight. By the end of the flight, each person wasted at least 8-10 cups. That is a lot of waste."
Pros: "Great experience flying with EVA, boarded late but still arrived on time, better food than other airlines though still airplane food, flight attendants very courteous and nice"
Cons: "For such a long international flight, I would suggest offering more water throughout flight as I've appreciated on other airlines"
Cons: "check in at SFO was chaotic on the outbound flight, and the guy at the counter really fought me on the price of my surfboard bag. he wanted to charge me $300, when it was really only $100 for the size of bag I had. I called ahead and made sure of the size limit for the $100 fee and even went and bought a new bag to hold my boards specifically to fit. Also, had to go to a separate counter and wait in a separate line to pay the fee, which took quite a while and seemed VERY unnecessary."
Pros: "Great food service, comfortable chairs, and adequate entertainment on the screen."
Cons: "Crew members pulled out my earphones when they could have just asked me to take them out. It was a bit pushy of them and others still had their earphones in and they let them leave it in upon landing"
Pros: "staff was friendly. Planes very comfortable. Wine the whole way home. Movie selection great. I had a whole row of 3 seats together to myself for a 12 hour flight #winning"
Cons: "I didn't like the layover but that had nothing to do with Eva air. Eva air was great and I would def recommend to others"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "The food was awful."
Cons: "Movie selection was lacking\ Bathroom floor was wet; I needed to wipe ti up myself"
Pros: "Large selection of free movies"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Turkish food and coffee are amazing"
Cons: "- Boarding took too much time because the airline called all passengers to board, instead of asking to board by their seat zone. - The space between seat is too narrow so I couldn't stretch my legs. - The seats are very old and little bit dirty - The seats were not properly cleaned."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Long layover hours at Istanbul airport . Had to ask for meal voucher at Istanbul airport since the airline does not issue it ."
Pros: "Great movie selection during the flight. Most of the food was decent."
Cons: "The boarding process was a pain in the butt. Even though my boyfriend and I did a pre- check-in online the day before. We still had to wait over an hour to check our one piece of luggage and wait to be checked in and get the boarding pass. Even though the site says we have the option to print out the boarding pass or show the code on our phone, we still had to deal with all the hassle. The plane was smelly until we were about to take off. The first meal on our way back from Istanbul was awful. The omelette was greasy, overly cheesy and bland. Same goes for the spinach pastry in the same tray. On the flights to Cairo, there was not enough drinks served. I only had one beverage offered to me. I was bypassed when they were serving the coffee/ tea. Also, the timeliness with serving drink was bad... I waited about 4 hours before getting my first beverage on the flight home."
Pros: "The food on the airline is good. Entertainment system has many movies to watch. The boarding system from Istanbul is a Nightmare!"
Cons: "Once I asked the air hostess for a sandwich, i was really hungry, she said she would have to walk to back of plane and they would be serving food in 15 minutes. After 45 minutes I went back to ask for a sandwich and handed me a tray of meal and said to eat this."
Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."
Cons: "The stewardess actually I insisted that I do NOT recline my chair during the flight. The chairs are already too small. The person behind me didn’t have any room so I had to place it in the upright position. They ran out of chicken on both flights too"
Pros: "- Friendly crew - Good overall"
Cons: "- Media devices is obsolete with bad barely working touch screens, plus my screen holder was broken - not adjustable. - Old style two-pin audio connectors (making hard to connect your own headphones), it's good that I had an adapter. Though port was malfunctioning anyway and I had to readjust it once in a while or I could not hear anything. - Censored movies, with such censorship it is practically pointless to watch some movies. - Leg room is far from generous (economy class)."
Cons: "I nearly missed my connecting flight because of how poorly organized Ataturk airport is. Disembarking was extremely time consuming; there were few signs instructing connecting passengers where to go; and the employees of the airport were extremely unhelpful and gave conflicting information. I made my flight with only minutes to spare after going through two security and passport checkpoints and sprinting an entire wing of the airport. I will never fly through Ataturk (or anywhere in Turkey) again."
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Cons: "They didnt load a special meal (child) that I had requested for my two year old. Luckily we had packed extra food. They returned that car seat all wet at SFO. Didn't even have the decency to put a plastic cover on it. Overall I found the crew lacking any warmth and the service was mediocre at best. The food was below average. Overall highly disappointed. I had assumed that Turkish would be like it's other middle Eastern airlines line Emirates or Qutar but they are not. I would take my business elsewhere"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "There should be more snacks during the long flight. Only one item was available and it was located in the rear of the plane. It was difficult for senior citizens to avail this service."
Pros: "The best airline to Europe! Period! Boing in the new 777 and has very comfortable seats with plenty of room for your feet even in economy class. Huge number of movies and TV shows. The food is excellent. Only missing part is to have some candies or chocolates for the 13 hour trip for San Francisco to Istanbul. You can not beat their price. Crew is very friendly and helpful at the same time. Slippers and socks they give you in economy class + cotton blanket of course make you feel you are 1st class traveler. What else? You name it and it is there. Will fly again with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Fantastic onboard entertainment. Lots of current movies and tv shows to watch. Music was available, too. Even a camera under the plane to see what you’re flying over...usually clouds. USB charging, big screens in the headrests, games, remote control with keyboard and game controller, network cable for laptops without Wi-Fi even. The had pillows and blankets on every seat when we arrived and handed out hot towels before the first meal. They also provided a kit with eye mask, toothbrush, cologne, and slippers. Far better than we expected."
Cons: "We were subjected to at least five security checks after our transfer in Istanbul. At the gate they checked our passports and boarding passes five times before boarding, every carry on bag was searched and every person was patted down. We even watched while one man held up his baby for a guard to pat the baby down! This was all after the security we’d received to get to our gate. So, if you left the gate to use the bathroom, you had to go through all the checks again."
Cons: "The Istanbul airport is very large and there are many people. The signage is generally pretty good, but it was confusing getting off the airplane from Berlin and seeing a sign saying something like " foreigners." I waited in that very long line for at least 30 minutes which ate up most of my layover time. Only to find out that it was for people with visas coming into Turley. I was directed to another, poorly marked, line for people transferring planes."
Pros: "Delicious food, amenities kit with socks, slippers, earplugs, toothpaste and more, fantastic entertainment system, power plugs and USB plugs at every seat."
Cons: "The laptop on board ban is a mess. As we were flying to the US, we had to go through literally 4 security checks one after the other. Then, all of our electronics (laptop, camera, even headphones) other than our phones had to be taken. As everyone had to go through it , this delayed our flight by 1 hour. When we landed, we waited literally 1.5h before they started handing out our electronics. All in all, it took me 4 hours to leave the airport."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was kind, accommodating, and polite. Free alcoholic drinks helped with the long list of negatives aspects of the flight."
Cons: "Every flight was 30+ minutes late. Crew members at the gate were consistently on their phones and delayed service substantially. Not only am I incredibly frustrated that I could not bring my laptop onboard to do work, but the fact I wasn't told until right at boarding and it took extensive time to reclaim it makes Turkish airlines on par with Ryan Air for inconveniencing its customers. At baggage claim, the crew loaded our baggage on the incorrect track, making it take even longer to receive it. Seats and leg room are sub par. As someone who is 6'3, when the person in front of me put their seat back, I was forced to take a metal bar on the back of their seat to my knees (no matter the position). I will be recommending to both family and friends that they should avoid this airline at all costs."
Pros: "Price Point."
Cons: "Staff not very Helpful. Really bad security check for USA travelers. Airport security is really out dated, zero technology, not even a metal detector before the gates. They woke up a 15 month baby 3 times for security check. Who does that."
Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was mediocre. Seats were extremely crowded. Person in middle seat was large, causing over-crowding because he required more than his seat. I didn't check out the entertainment, as I didn't know how to use the electronics."
Pros: "Price, service."
Cons: "Can not take a laptop or Kindle on board (no fault of Turkish Airlines, but still an option available when flying from other places to the US)."
Pros: "Better than average in flight service. Excellent in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Poor customer service. What the Turkish airliines claims to provide for passengers with long stopover (free tour etc.) on its web site did not happen. We got inconsistent and not helpful information from different Turkish representatives. Tight seat configurations. Uncomfortable for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "The customer service and attention to detail was a nice surprise. I would definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "The space between the rows was very limited. I have short legs so it wasn't a problem for me, but my companion had her knees shoved into the back of the seat in front of her for the whole 13 hour flight. Not so good."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, and they keep you well fed with their snacks."
Cons: "The plane departed 2+ hours late, and offered no free internet so we could tell our families that we would be late. They also didn't apologize or offered vouchers for the delay."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Good food and courteous service."
Cons: "I was crowded in amongst a family who decided to camp in my row of 3 seats. (Literally, on the floor.) I could not move because I needed the bulkhead and aisle seat to stretch my legs. I am a Diabetic and needed it for circulation. I did not say anything but, the stewardess should have made one of the people go back to their seat as he was wedged near the window and sitting on the floor. It made my 13.25 hours trip very uncomfortable. They had a child with them so, I didn't wish to complain while on board."
Pros: "The flight itself was great and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Due to the laptop ban, the boarding and un-boarding process was brutal. We had to stand in line for an hour and a half just to hand over our laptops, where for some reason they decided to have only 2 people handling the process which created a huge line. The flight was 1:30 late and as we landed, there was no method to the delivery of the laptops to people. I had to wait almost 2 hours to get my laptop. Again, they only had 2-3 people handling the distribution of the laptops. I understand the security issue, but this issue was known for weeks now and there is no reason not to have enough people on the ground to take care of the boarding and distribution of electronic devices to at least make this an easier experience. There is no excuse for such poor preparation and service."
Pros: "I got extremely sick on the flight from Istanbul to San Francisco. I now know I caught a stomach bug which hit me on the flights from Cape Town to Istanbul and then even worse from Istanbul to San Francisco. The flight from Istanbul was delayed by two hours due to customs delay for a passenger, as such there was a lot of recycled air. Take that and fact I'm pregnant and by time i started the 13 hour journey already felt sick. I started throwing up immediately and got sick 12 more times. the flight attendants brought me crackers, water and a cold towel and ice. My husband asked if he could pay to put me in business class but was not in airline policy. but i think given how sick and pregnant i was the flight attendant went to ask the captain if there was anything they could do to assist. they ended up moving me to business class to lie down and let me stay there for 3 hours. I got sick upon moving back but getting that rest really helped me. I felt like they genuinely cared about me and am so thankful to the two flight attendants who assisted: 1) Zumrat Bolukbas 2) Hatice (Cabin Chief) These women are amazing!"
Cons: "the 2 hour flight delay on tarmac."
Pros: "Flights attendants were really nice, USB ports on all seats, great selection of free movies and other entertainment, very good vegetarian food."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in Istanbul and could have been handled better. A second inspection was setup At the gate to checks passports, inspect carry-on bags for laptops and iPads, and a pat-down. we were late taking off, the plane was really full, and the cushions on the seats were off a bit. Seems like the plane was cleaned quickly and not put back together carefully."
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Cons: "The boarding took too long, cabin service on the return flight was a lot poorer than I received on the initial flight. It questions my quality recommendation to other people."
Pros: "The seats had a decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Stuck in Istanbul airport for three days because of snow. The way the airline handled it was APPALLING. Second night stood in line for a hotel for over four hours only to find out at 3am that there weren't any more. And none of that captures the insanity of being sent to a transfer desk with no way out except buying a Turkish visa and going through immigration. Inexcusable. I have traveled to over 40 countries in the past 30+ years and this was beyond the pale, absolutely a nightmare, and almost all of it (excepting the actual snow delay) in the airline's control. NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE THROUGH ISTANBUL."
Pros: "Took Turkish Airline from New Delhi to San Francisco. The flight is at 6:55am from New Delhi, so a little early start - but the connection in Istanbul is excellently timed. The aircrafts were 777-300ER on both legs, and rather new. The entertainment is great and the TV screens are 11inches. Could not complain at all. Food is fine, standard fare, and there are some snacks available through entire flight. Istanbul is a reasonable airport for a short connection. Turkish allows 2 bags of 50lbs free - yet another reason to take it along with the reasonable fares."
Cons: "The luggage delivery at SFO took forever! The flight landed at 4:36pm and I got my luggage at 5:40pm. This is something I have noticed on Turkish Airlines multiple times. They really need to work on their luggage workflow."
Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight days before leaving the country or origin, leaving me incredibly inconvenienced."
Cons: "I have never had a worse experience with booking travel and I vow to avoid Kayak and any related services. This has been truly one of the most terrible travel experiences. The flights were changed (not a big deal) and I was told I was due a refund. After three 1-1.5 hour calls no such refund has come and both agencies says the other is due to provide. I am furious and will never use Kayak or Justfly again."
Pros: "There was upgrade special on our outbound flight at check in which we took advantage of so we were in business class flight from SFO to Istanbul. That was awesome experience - very comfortable fully reclining seats, gourmet food and drinks, impeccable service, wide entertainment selection, etc. Even on the shorter leg flights we took (i.e. Istanbul to Rome and Dubrovnik to Istanbul) they served food (light snack). We flew economy from Istanbul back to SFO but got exit row seats so plenty of leg room and seats reclined good amount. Again, great service, food and entertainment. All the flights we had on our itinerary were newer planes. Turkish Airlines is so much better than American airlines!"
Pros: "Friendly, polite and very helpful staff. Clean aircraft.on time best customer service."
Cons: "Nothing negative. Keep up good work!"
Pros: "The entire trip was very good when though it was very long due to the stop over in turkey. The flight was very good ( business class). Service and food was outstanding. The seats were good. Laying down was still a bit tight due to the armrests remaining in the same position. The crew was extremely nice and always helpful. The Turkish Air lounge on Istanbul is great and makes the united lounge in SFO look like a soup kitchen. I would fly Turkish air again."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "The cabin was too warm--i was sweating for a good part of the flight. I'm a taller person and felt the seats were uncomfortable--especially when the person in front of me was reclined. It made it nearly impossible to get any sleep."
Pros: "My husband and I had a very average experience overall. From boarding to inflight customer service."
Cons: "We did not plan to check in any luggage since we had few connections, so we decide to take our rimowa luggage with us. So we were forced to check them in because it was only 8kg allow per passenger on carry on. So our luggage end up full of big dents, and scratches. We reported to the airlines and it was hard to justify what we were complaining about it. As a consumer were are very unsatisfied and unhappy. One of the worst experience in hospitality I have ever experience."
Pros: "I paid for WiFi but the service didn't work perfectly, I wanted to switch device,which you have to logout first. The button didn't work"
Pros: "Food was tasty. See other notes about dessert."
Cons: "Very little legroom. When the person in front of my reclined, I wasn't even able to open my tray all the way to eat. Flight was delayed for takeoff, that wasn't the airline's fault (air traffic) so that didn't factor in my review. Although the food is generally tasty, the dessert could be upgraded. I flew on 4 Turkish Airline flights this year and have never finished a dessert as I've not liked any of them. The bathrooms should be cleaned mid-flight for a 13 hour flight. It started out great but towards the middle of the flight, the bathrooms got really disgusting."
Pros: "Lots do watch/do on the console. Smooth flight. Responsive staff when available."
Cons: "Perhaps because of Istanbul security measures, but all water removed before boarding plane, with no chance to get more. Stewards couldn't give out bottles of water, only those little cups from time to time. They could bring more of those little cups when you called for them, but not during turbulence. So having no access to water was not great (or planned out on their part). Also, no random sweeps of the aisle by the stewardess from time to time, to check on comfort. My seat kept being pushed by passenger behind me. Flight into Istanbul two weeks prior was great all around. This knee was filled with too many negative moments."
Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was stressful because of the extra security check point for us destinations."
Pros: "Entertainment was good, there was a wide variety of movies, music and TV shows to keep passengers entertained. Seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "I was really disappointed with Turkish airlines this time. When we first boarded, I informed the flight attendant that I had hurt my back just 20 min ago and if it was possible to change seats (since it was hard for me to move with 2 people sitting next to me) after boarding was complete. She was nice enough by offering me ice, and said that once I hear the announcement ''boarding complete'' I can get up and look for a more comfortable seat. When I did that she asked me to go back to my seat immediately without letting me speak, and not once during the 13hr 30 min flight did she come to check if I needed anything. Food was served twice, a 13hr 30 min flight and food was served twice. It was almost impossible to call flight attendants if you needed water, coffee or was starving..they were always in a hurry and a little rude. Definitely going with Emirates next time, the service there doesn't even compare!"
Pros: "I flew Paris -Hong Kong(round trip) with transfer in Istanbul and overall everything was ok. The in-flight service was great, food was very good and their fleet seems quite new and clean."
Cons: "Thw only aspect I didn't like was the fact that our flight from Istanbul to Hong Kong was delayed and that is not a big problem,flights gets delayed all the time. But the attitude we got from the ground staff in the airport was a big problem. We got to the customer service counter to get further information about the flight and nobody was giving us any information.Not even an apology for the fact that we waited for 3 hours in an airport at 2 AM. Everybody seemed so bored,that they barely spoke 3 words.They offered us a voucher at Burger King, but we couldn't order anything from the menu,but the simplest burger. We just expected a bit more from an airline that has somebody dressed as a chef on-board while serving the in-flight meals."
Pros: "- nice treats around take off (turkish delight and Superman v Batman Chocolate cake) - good in-flight entertainment selection"
Cons: "- service was slow and steward/esses took awhile to respond to service calls; were not that friendly - trash wasn't picked up"

The 2 hour delay *after boarding* with 2 children was not the best. Also you guys brought no food on board, for 2+5.5 hours of being on a plane.

Pros: "IFE, good system, GUI, and good content, various options and languages."
Cons: "Crew service, uninterested, careless, unemphatic, absolutely not dedicated to service, even borderline rude."
Pros: "A staff of 2 attendants on a crowded A 321 is minimal, not optimal"
Pros: "Our daughter's first time traveling alone. She slept most of the time and she said it was fine and comfortable enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour and then once up in the air, passengers were told the food cart didn't make it the 6 hour flight so no food or snacks for the entire flight from Montreal to San Francisco."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "1. Broken arm, asked for 1st pre-boarding. Was told, “it’s over there”. That’s it. By the time I got on everyone in my section was already on. No one helped me w my one backpack, watching me struggle. 2. The crew appeared to hate their jobs. Scowls and general poor attitudes. 3. Food. Airline food in general is not good. However, this stuff was barely edible. Terrible. 4. Information. None. I had to use the APP to get any info. My connecting flight was almost 4 hours delayed - w NO info. In fact, NO GATE AGENT the entire 4 hours. After finally boarding my flight, the captain apologized for the delay because of a two hour delay in another city. Numbers don’t match - sorry. Then he announced we needed to di ice. No problem. Safety first. He said no longer than 30 minutes. One hour later we were on our way. Overall, I was extremely disappointed in my experience with Air Canada - very disappointed."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Flight was an hour late to VANCOUVER causing me to miss my flight to PDX getting me in 4 hours late to PDX"
Cons: "First time flying with Air Canada, mixups from the start of the journey until I finally got on my connecting flight"
Cons: "We flew from Toronto to Calgary, the original flight was suppose to be from Toronto to S.F. we were told that the original flight had been cancelled because the flights did not match up, the one coming from Aruba got in to late to make the connecting flight it was a nightmare i will probably never fly Air Canada again nor will i recommend to others"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a bunch of varieties to keep you entertained for a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The delays were horrible!!! Had 4 flights with them. Seattle to Vancouver, Vancouver to Beijing, Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle. Seattle to Vancouver was delayed so long that we almost missed our connecting flight to Beijing. Because of that delay our baggage missed the Vancouver to Beijing flight and we had nothing for 2 days!!! It was a hassle to get some kind of compensation and just having to wear the same clothes for 2 days. Also the Hong Kong to Vancouver, and Vancouver to Seattle flights were also delayed"
Cons: "Total commotion at gate. Two flights jammed into one small gate area. Rep was surly and embarrased many who were confused in the commotion and ynclear communication from the boarding agent. Tv didnt work for 4 hrs."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Good leg room. Staff friendly and helpful. Really great flight."
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Cabin Crew did not provide water to hydrate the passengers but, one time on the flight from Toronto to San Francisco."
Pros: "On tiime"
Cons: "Has to wait an hour and a half at the gate to park in sanfransico"
Pros: "Everything I'll do the same next trip!!"
Cons: "No complaints!!"
Cons: "We were already running late when during take off, one of the engines malfunctioned and we had to emergency break on the runway and go back to the gate. Because it was unexpected, we had to wait even longer for a gate to become available. We then had to re go through customs and get our bags then wait in line again at the counter to schedule our flight for the next day. Thankfully we were given a hotel room and money for food. Very scary experience overall on the runway, but they tried to handle it as smoothly as possible under the unusual circumstances."
Cons: "Instructions on Air Canada's website when you Google "how early should you get to the airport flying Canada to USA" say you should get there 3 hours ahead of time. For a 6:40 flight I got to the airport at 3:40, as instructed, and checkin wasn't even open. Per Air Canada's website "You should arrive at the airport three (3) hours before your flight's scheduled departure time. Pre-board security screening for departures to the U.S. opens at 3:00 AM. Exception: 20 minutes for flights departing from Toronto City Airport (YTZ)." Check in staff told me I should have gotten there 2 hours ahead. This is very conflicting. Considering I was heading to a 10 hour trade show, believe me that hour of sleep I lost between 2:30 when I had to get up for this flight and 3:30 when I could have gotten up sure was missed. Correct and consistent instructions to passengers go a long way."
Pros: "Staff remember special requests"
Cons: "Generally not friendly, bathrooms were filthy from the time we got on the plane. Everything is dirty bad smells everywhere. Delayed, no space, no good food, no fruit, so many little things missing, limited entertainment options. LBP airport is the most inefficient airport in the world, always wait forever for my luggage with lots of rude staff everywhere. Some 400-600 people were trying to leave the airport through two lines to pass off the last sheet which is unnecessary. They should take a lesson from other airports like Hong Kong and Singapore. Absolutely despise going through Toronto airport as well as Air Canada gates when departing."
Pros: "Great crew and was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was expensive"
Pros: "Entertainment and staff were good as expecte"
Cons: "over 3 hours delayed. no compensation for drinks/food no communications re: options and timing. I would have rather forfeited my seat on yesterday's flight (which didn't leave until after 10pm - scheduled for 7) and taken the first flight out of YVR today. Super frustrating - Have greater expectations from Air canada."
Pros: "Seatroom"
Cons: "The 6 1/2 hour flight from Montréal CANADA to San Francisco, CA USA, is considered a "shared border flight," which means 1) you pay $25 for your first checked bag, $35 for the next, and $100 for subsequent bags. The food is horrible and the type you'd expect on a puddle jumper from NY to Boston. Clearly Air Canada executives are aware that Canada and the US are separate countries. This is just an attempt to gouge the consumer. Unfortunately Air Canada is the only Airline I can fly out of Montreal so I'm stuck with them. : ("
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times without any explanation or update from Air Canada at all. Everyone was at the gate ready to board at 6:50. The screen didn't indicate that it was going to be delayed. There was no one from the crew or AC at all at the gate until 8:30. No announcement, whatsoever. Then when we finally arrived at SFO, the plane was circling above SFO in a storm for another one hour and fifteen minutes..."
Pros: "Flight crew were relatively friendly."
Cons: "On my outgoing flight, the audio jack was broken at my original seat, so they offered for me to move to the only available seat. Unfortunately, that TV broke after about an hour. I noticed that there were several TVs around me that also were having issues. On a long flight- 5+ plus hours, a TV with movies can be extremely helpful! If the technology had been kept functional, it would have been a much more tolerable flight."
Pros: "Super nice crew!"
Cons: "Inaudible boarding"
Pros: "Not much other than smiling faces of air hostesses"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage on an international flight. Besides making advance booking, was unable to secure an Aisle or a Window seat."
Pros: "Flight was not full and reservstions mde some time ago but we were seated several rows apart. inexcusable!! Several others were also seated apart so we talked among us and people moved around so that family and couples were together, no thanks to airline. Service and food were second class at best."
Cons: "On the way back from Quebec City to Montreal we were asked to check our carry-ons as luggage, because "there is no room' on the plane. It was an empty flight. ALL overhead compartments were empty. Both flights - Quebec to Montreal and Montreal San Francisco were late. As the result, we have to spend 1.5 hours in the baggage claim area, because "there are no baggage agents in SFO available". THAT WAS THE WHOLE REASON WE ONLY HAD CARRY-ONS! By far, one of the worst flight experience in the last 10 year."
Pros: "Size of plane allowing for aisle seating."
Cons: "Delay with boarding for about hour without a good explanation. All monitors in airport shows plane on time when it actually was not. Boarding process also took a bit of time perhaps due to many elderly on the flight. Seating was also confusing as the middle seats did not correspond with aisle seating. This caused delays as passengers had to figure out where they were sitting. Checked in luggage at gate since flight was full and we were asked to volunteer to check-in luggage. At baggage claim, bag delay to retrieve luggage after already hour delay in departure. Bags was not labeled or categorized correctly causing an extra half hour delay to claim bags."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "The fight had intercom problems and that delayed us for 5+ hours with no decision as to the resolution. We finally got home at 4 AM ...."
Cons: "Flights delayed both there and back, with no advance warning and no reason given. Online & airport signage said flight "on time" the whole time. Asked Air Canada Customer Service desk in Toronto to change signage to accurate time, they were SUPER snooty and treated me like an idiot. Signage did not change, my husband came to airport "on time" to pick me up and then had to sit there 1-1/2 hours. They are inconsiderate jerks."
Cons: "We had a terrible time trying to get in contact with Air Canada. We spent literally hours on hold and multiple times we hung up without any answer. Customer service needs to drastically improve."
Pros: "We were safe."
Cons: "Big problems with frequent flyer miles. After a number of hours into the effort I am told my miles won't count. For the average airline it takes about 30 seconds to join the frequent flyer club. Air Canada now is my last choice for long flights. Ok maybe before Frontier."
Pros: "All crews were nice and friendly."
Cons: "Would have been great if I had a Entertainment (movies, TV etc) screen on my seat for my Vancouver - KIX flight."
Pros: "once i got through checking in everything was ok"
Cons: "if i knew the name of the man i talked to at checkin i would make a complaint specifically about him. i lost my passport a few days before coming home and went to the united states consulate where they told me to bring a printed copy of my passport and the united states boarding patrol would let me back into the united states. the man at the checkin didn't want to let me through to even speak to the united states border patrol and told me the consulate was wrong. i almost missed my flight because of his stubborn arrogance. once past him i was able to explain what happened and show what identification I had and everyone was very nice to me."
Pros: "Boarding is the best!"
Cons: "I do understand mechanical issues occur, but your communication of these issues was awful! My god, you cannot tell if your electronics are working before you board people. One thing I can say for America, they do not mess around.....they fix problems....your team sucked leaving Toronto Barcelona two weeks ago and then you suck leaving Toronto to SFO. Please understand, folks have flight connections and the number one thing then need from you, instead of water is information on whether their flight will be waiting for them!!!"
Pros: "Bags were checked all the way through, Canada to US and I didn't have to recheck them before connection into US."
Cons: "That they make you take your headphones off during takeoff and landing - ear buds only makes no sense."
Cons: "We didn't like having to pay for carry on luggage. When we left SFO and flew to Montreal, if your bag was 21 inches, not 20 they checked it for free. Traveling back to SFO the counter person made us pay to check a bag, even though we knew if we went to the gate, they would take it. This was not good or consistent. We will not fly on Air Canada"
Pros: "Very soft seat and it have a thing kind of a iPad is very fun."
Cons: "It has nothing to eat when you are getting a fly is 1:00 to 2:00"
Pros: "the boarding process was smooth and organized."
Cons: "food should be part of the ticket and not extra payment. In a 5 to 6 hours of flight there should be at least some snacks offered."
Pros: "I enjoyed the pleasant crew and the constant water being given."
Cons: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. However it was unexpected that no food would be provided on a 5 hour flight. If not a small meal then a snack was expected. The crew did provide water consistently which was very nice. My personal entertainment screen was very unresponsive and then the head phone jack wasn't working for sound, I had to hold it at a certain angle to hear bits of sound. Since the head phone jack was located at my thigh it was very uncomfortable and when I shifted I broke my headphones :("
Cons: "Did not pay attention when serving meal to the people passing by not asking until call them back"
Pros: "Nothing.."
Cons: "Air cananda made me go crazy... They didn't prepared anything after I missed my flight. Because of immigration. They just said to me that was not their fault. But you know, I arrived at air port 5am. My flight time was 8am. I asked aircanada clerks to get into gate quckily. But they had me wait for a long time, and they said everybody was waiting, so that's not problem. But when I got into gate at 8:45, My plane already had gone. And I went to Air canada service center, I had argued for 5hours... because they just prepared my flight from Toronto to San Francisco. They didn't care about Connected air plane was Asiana. So I Had to call three company.. Asiana, Kayak, air canada... that was horrible time. Air canada didn't want to have responsibility about missing air plane. That's why I had to contact with Asiana...the first time Asiana didn't want to prepare air plane for free... I had to try to explain my situation and problem three times.... Finally I got a ticket for free from Asiana. I could departure at 9pm from Toronto. I stayed in Pearson air port for 15hours... because of Air canada's GOOD!! customer service v^^v..... I will never use Air canada !!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "That i showed up in maple time and the plane was oversold, then they put me on another flight which made my pick up at another airport costly!"
Pros: "Aircraft too crowded, travelling last year on Air Canada from Vancouver to Sydney on a Boeing 777, seating was 3 - 3 - 3, very pleasant in economy class. Flight from Vancouver to Hong on a Boeing 777, seating was 3 - 4 - 3, very crowded, narrow seats, almost everyone shoulders touching, aisles very narrow. On the inbound journey a few hours our of Hong Kong the announcement was made, that all the toilet holding tanks were almost full, please do not go to the toilet unless one had too, Where else could one go?. Would think some than twice to travel on this flight again. Cathay Pacific use same aircraft Boeing 777, seating was 3 - 3 - 3, aH that's better."
Cons: "Staff were very friendly"
Cons: "1. I ordered kosher meal, and we haven't because it finished. 2. The flight was full I couldn't findo a sit with my kids. I sit separately."
Pros: "The crew are all very polite and easy going. They displayed a certain candor that is lost in todays customer service. I've always enjoyed flying United and will continue to do so."
Cons: "Several of the passengers had connecting flights. On plane that size, it takes time to get off the plane. It would be nice if the crew would allow those with connecting flights to disembark first. An easy fix in my mind, though I know I don't see the whole picture."
Pros: "It was part of Star Alliance (although they should be ashamed to claim it.)"
Cons: "Air Canada SQUEEZES 10 seats across on this 777 (I've never had more than 9 on any other airline) and it is very cramped and uncomfortable (you'd better like your seat mates because you will be rubbing elbows and shoulders with them for many hours, especially on this 12 hour flight. They have very little leg room as well. This is the most miserable long haul airplane I have ever flown on, and I fly a lot. Discount airline planes are more comfortable than this one. It was over an hour after we had our meal until they got around to picking up our trays."
Pros: "The plane was not full so there was lots of room to stretch out, very nice."
