Pros: "Excellent crew!"

Cons: "Seat cushion could have been softer"

Cons: "Bigger seat, but compared to other experiences it was very good."

Cons: "The food was a little strange, I had salmon and rice as “breakfast” with iceberg lettuce side salad. The pieces of salmon were little shreds with a funky taste. Not bad, but not what I wanted on a long red eye flight. Also I wish there’d been more Hollywood movie selections."

Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"

Pros: "I like the cup holder ring and the coffee stirrer. Blanket thicker than United’s."

Cons: "Waiting Area in DOHA for boarding does not have a latrine to use, so once you checked in you can't go back out."

Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"

Pros: "Comfy, good food, good service"
Cons: "No internet. Limited movie options."

Pros: "The flight attendants are always friendly and helpful"

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

No one communicated with US I think your airline is typical Arab mentality unless you are white I. E American you don't give a shot about your costumers this is the second arb line I droped I will never take ur plane ever!!

Cons: "Everything racist disgustinget and never will take this airline nasty dirty broke down twice stayed in the plane for 4 hrs no one apologised"

Pros: "The leg room was good especially for tall passengers. Food was fantastic. The interior lighting of the plane was amazing. The airport is probably one of the best i have seen that a 9-hour layover didn't feel as bad. Very clean and so many things to do."
Cons: "Airconditioning needs a bit of improvement. I had to remove my jacket. It had a point that i was sweating in the middle of the flight. Probably the warmest airplane ride i had."

Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"

Pros: "Friendly used easy to use"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "We were very efficiently boarded, however there was a mechanical problem. The flight attendants helped every one know where their connecting gates were, as we have exactly 9 minutes to make that connection."
Cons: "We were very efficiently boarded, however there was a mechanical problem. The flight attendants helped every one know where their connecting gates were, as we have exactly 9 minutes to make that connection. We would like to give a shout out to the baggage team that were able to transfer our bags in such a short amount of time. And also to the San Jose flight that we did for four of us."

Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good organization, good hygiene, polite crew."

Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."

Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."

Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."

Pros: "Delayed, packed, bought a sandwich! Good sandwiches!"
Cons: "Packed and delayed"

Pros: "Crew"

Cons: "Delta One screens are a bit small."

Cons: "Better accommodation for handicap passengers."

Pros: "Good crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "This A320 aircraft departed LGA with the first class toilet inoperative. Flight was entirely full. First class passengers had to fight their way to the rear two toilets, around serving carts, etc. Cabin Crew was very good natured about all of this; but flight crew never mentioned it."

Pros: "Decent drinks and food. Attentive crew"
Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"

Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."

Pros: "Short and easy"

Pros: "wow, got in 3 minutes early, its a short flight, but its no joke trying to get out of ATL on time! Great job!"

Pros: "Although we ended up being stuck on the plane for 2 hours prior to take off due to high volume, weather and as the pilot put it, "possible military activity" the crew kept us informed every step of the way. There was one flight attendant in particular who was so full of energy and made the unfortunate circumstances not so bad. She entertained us and kept us in the loop the entire time as did the pilots. It made the 2 hours not feel so bad which was appreciated."
Cons: "That we were delayed on the plane for two hours on a small plane but I know it was out of their control."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food, comfort, space, entertainment"

Cons: "No food"

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."

Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."

Pros: "Great people and crew early arrival nice passengers"

Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."

Cons: "Wasted my time on security and lost my flight"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."

Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"

Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"

Pros: "The staff of the flight were very friendly and attentive. They were great!"

Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"

Pros: "Refer to my comments about flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The entertainment on the app, bring back the good old tv's on the flight"

Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."

Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."

Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."

Pros: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."

Cons: "We were delayed over half an hour waiting for late passengers and then we had to sit on the runway in LA for another half and hour before a gate opened up and I almost missed my connection."

Pros: "Upgraded to first class so had more room, nicer seats. No lines at TSA, had the first gate past security so a short walk. Nice shopping and food choices."
Cons: "No meal served on flight, only drinks and cookies / popcorn. No entertainment at all. You have to provide your own device. There was wifi but not free, it was so slow I couldn't download the entertainment app, so I gave up and slept. No access to Delta lounge with domestic first class WTF?"

Pros: "Everything great"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment choices and regular food and beverage available"
Cons: "Boarding took so long and only 2 spots they were allowing entry and one person was there for 10 minutes so essentially had 1 window And not the friendliest staff"

Pros: "Great crew with positive attitude. Boarding was non chaotic and plane was clean and new."
Cons: "Food could be much better"

Pros: "Crew was nice but flight was delayed due to maintenance so I’m still stuck at the airport here and no vouchers for anything."
Cons: "Flight would’ve been on time"

Cons: "I requested for wheelchair die to my knees problem, but there was no wheelchair for me at Narita and Bangkok."

Pros: "JAL flight crew were the best"
Cons: "all were good"

Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "For being stuck in a small space for twelve hours, they made the experience about as good as you could ask."

Cons: "Paying for non middle seats"

Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."

Pros: "Entertainment and crew"
Cons: "Not much room to move around for such a big trip"

Pros: "The amount of things to keep you entertained for the long flight"
Cons: "I had to have my seat up the entire route so that made a very uncomfortable flight was never able to really rest"

Cons: "Foo"

Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Wish the seats could've been a bit more comfortable"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine -- I never felt any major discomfort."
Cons: "All three of our luggage were left behind in Chicago; normally it would not be a big deal, but we are leaving for a trip right away and needed our suitcases, clothes, and the souvenirs we had bought for our friends. This inconvenience is why I rated this flight low."

Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "had to take another flight, ticket agent was able to change me to a different flight on JAL. however, JAL could not access the ticket info and ticket agent would not take my payment. result was missing that flight, ticket manager told me it's my fault and tough luck no refund. American airlines told me the same, ended up losing my money for the ticket purchase. i booked another new flight with another airline direct. worst experience in my life using kayak."

Pros: "The food and seat back entertainment were great, as well as the staff"
Cons: "Legroom was borderline inhumane, as a 5'10"adult I don't think it's too crazy to ask for a little more space on a 12+ hour flight. Good luck sleeping"

Cons: "There were no available snacks and drinks between meals in a long international flight. In other airlines, they have continous supplies of snacks and drinks at the food area for passengers to enjoy at their leisure."

Pros: "The service was above and beyond expectations. Seats in economy are roomier than I'm used to. There was also many movies to choose from for in air entertainment. Food was delicious. Will fly Japan Airlines again in the future."

Cons: "I loved everything"

Pros: "Great food, professional conduct"
Cons: "Couldn't control window tint after we left California"

Cons: "one staff member was extremely rude when asked for another beverage."

Pros: "We were seated in economy but we had a pretty good flight. The only rough part was the fact that it was 10 hours of sitting, and that was due to the destination not AA's service. As someone who is used to United and Delta for flying, I felt that the service offered kinda rocked."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."

Pros: "Entertainment was great. I really liked the touch screens on the chairbacks. Food was fine for airplane food. It came more than I expected. Get sandwiches over the meals, they are better quality. A vegetarian guy had a hard time but the crew tried to help him out. Comfort was ok for a 13 hour trip. The chairs are not really the best and my back hurt after a while. Make sure you stretch! Crew was nice except for one lady. But she wasent rude just... non responsive. Other members were fantastic though. Boarding was very painless."

Cons: "Veggies and salads: gross - should have been blanched. Mid- flight snack was literally frozen. The meat had ice crystals!"

Cons: "There was a problem with the plane and we were stuck with very warm conditions for 2 hours and 40 minutes before we took flight."

Cons: "Switch our seats that we paid extra to reserve, was not a fan of this! Internet also didn't work after we paid for it. However they did make things right already."

Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."

Cons: "A lady in AA counter at AA DFW counter. She was rude and not helpful. at all."

Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."

Pros: "Everything was great their wasn't enough clarification as to what airline I was fliying. It said Japan air on my confirmation email but it would up being through American Airlines.

Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by a few hours due to mechanical issues but they did give us free food and drinks once we were on the plane."

Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "The food was not too good."

Pros: "Selection of movies was excellent. I requested vegetarian meals, which were good, although not filling. Thankfully the flight was not crowded and we were able to get a row to ourselves. Flight attendants were very nice. Appreciated the frequent beverage offerings to stay hydrated. Overall a good experience."
Cons: "Paid the extra for an aisle seat, which was irritating to have to do, but my husband has arthritic knees and needs to get up frequently to walk around to avoid pain,"

Pros: "They passed out headphones for the entertainment early in the flight. The meal service was efficient and more than adequate. The fight also arrived 30 minutes early."

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."

Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"

Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."

Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."

Cons: "We ordered fruits meal but the crew didn't get the request. I have a confirmation email of the meal"

Pros: "The crew were friendly. We arrived ahead of schedule."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was ok but my daughters luggage didn’t arrive when we arrived which I found weird when we took the same flights"

Cons: "Ran out of the best meal option in Business Class..."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Overhead bin storage too small for 70% of passengers. Crew had an attitude that was not pleasant"

Pros: "Space, food and entertainment"
Cons: "It was late 20min"

Pros: "The entertainment selection was great and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Maybe we needed to specify this earlier, but there were no vegetarian options offered for the meals. It's minor, but it'd be nice to have that option when we're asked instead of needing to arrange it beforehand."

Pros: "Skyscrapers"
Cons: "Fatigue from job"

Pros: "See above for overall summery both AC and Jaz."
Cons: "Not sure which screwed up on bags."

Cons: "The plain had been siting at the gate when I arrived 1.5 hours early...trouble was the flight crew did not show up on time. the flight left 2 hours and 45 minutes late. Even after we all boarded, they made an announcement that we were ready to go, but still needed a pilot. If I was this late, I'd be in serious trouble."

Cons: "Entertainment options are old. Food in unaccomodating for Vegetarians."

Pros: "They seemed like a good airline. It was my first time flying with them, and I got upgraded to business class on the very first flight of my trip. What a great first impression! They're quite service oriented, with attendants speaking multiple languages. The in-flight magazine was good but not available on every plane. The food was usually pretty good, and the live map was convenient."
Cons: "All of the flights were late (I had 6 of them on this trip, all thru Air Canada, and not a single one departed on time). All of my layovers were long, except one, which was planned to be about an hour but ended up being less than 30min. That one was a pain: had to go through Canadian customs and then run across the Toronto airport, but thankfully my next flight was still boarding - and ended up running late because they had to de-ice the plane. One of the flights ran late, and as we were reaching the gate a passenger felt the need to yell racist/ignorant comments at a fellow passenger who wouldn't sit down, and then the flight attendant - overall that was a real shame."

Pros: "The boarding started one hour early to allow passengers to board on time."
Cons: "A flight stewardess did not respond to a call twice as if the call light was not turned on."

Cons: "left with 2 hours delay because the fuel was not ready. Then we had an unexpected landing in Vancouver to change flight crew. That meant an additional 2 hours of delay. Finally we accumulated 2 more hours of delay. The final total was 6 hours of delay for no clear reason."

Pros: "Cheap air fares"
Cons: "Could not use airline websites to select seats due to using a third party agent like kayak. Had to call both Alaska Air and Air Canada before I could secure seats."

Cons: "Food was served and drinks only arrived after you finished your meal. This happened for all meals."

Pros: "Good price, clean, free movies, descent movie selection."
Cons: "Bring your own snacks. No gluten free options unless pre-arrange. No fruit, no peanuts, no option to buy food, and the snack gallery only had pretzels. If you like bread, butter and water, should be ok. Close seats, can feel movement of people beside and behind."

Pros: "good to have 3 meals for this long haul flight"
Cons: "Flight delay more than 1 hour ! Took very very long to board Poor choice of movie. Too few, Too old"

Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "light in bathroom didn't work and was so small i couldn't help my three year old go without leaving the door open"

Pros: "Nothing positive to say"
Cons: "Originating flight was delayed, so missed connection in Montreal and had to be rerouted. After going through 5 airports to reach our final destination, we finally made it - without our luggage!!! To make matters worse, the complete and extreme lack of empathy on behalf of Air Canada's customer service desk was less than appreciated by us.... As it turns out, Air Canada was aware all along that we would miss our connection; however, they still had us board our originating flight. The gate agent should have been conscientious and informed us that the delay was ongoing with our flight being number 22+ on the tarmac to take off, thus guaranteeing our missed connection. They should have rebooked us on another flight from our original destination vs rebooking us upon arrival in Montreal to miss further connecting flights. Very disappointed!!!!! Based on this experience alone, never again will I or my family travel Air Canada."

Pros: "The flight was no cancel because the weather"
Cons: "Waiting too much after landing in LGA"

Pros: "Free food and beverages"
Cons: "No snacks between meals"

Pros: "We made it to Vancouver"
Cons: "Aircraft was late. At least two gate changes in LA. Flight crew did not take away trash, just told us to stick in seat pockets. Entertainment system was down much of flight."

Pros: "They weigh every little carry on even little backpacks. My Dad who is 83 had very hard time since he had one pound over. Max weigh you can in your carry on is 22 pound. Extremely money hungry Air Line. I would avoid at any cost."

Pros: "Nothing to like, just fair"
Cons: "3 toilets broken, unfriendly crew, disorder on bording, brake my luggage, I think is enough to unlike them"

Pros: "Oft times Air Canada crews can be a bit less than friendly/hospitable but this crew were smiling, friendly and I thought very above average for an Air Canada crew"

Cons: "Quality of food vs price"

Pros: "Reaching my destination, that's the only thing I was happy about"
Cons: "The plane is old and seat are close to each others, it wouldn't hirt if they make extra space, afterall it's a long flight!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!"

Pros: "The movie selection and the food was great! The crew was friendly and helpful. The pillows and blanket provided made for a little bit more comfort."
Cons: "The lack of space in the cabin was very uncomfortable. Being arm in arm with strangers is not my idea of a great flight. Flights lasting over 4 hours should really be courteous to those on board."

Pros: "Great service, friendly staff. Good food and wine. On time arrival."

Pros: "Great airline. Highly recommend them"

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."

Pros: "The flight attendants, especially Theresa, were fantastic. Theresa was very attentive, fun, and made each passenger feel special. The flight crew Supervisor greeted us each by name and leads a spectacular crew. The seat, amenities, entertainment, and food were just amazing."
Cons: "Business class did not have it's own boarding call."

Cons: "ROWS OF SEATS ARE SO TIGHT, TOO TIGHT"

Pros: "cruising slightly high to avoid turbulence, the way from Toronto to Winnipeg we were flying on altitude 26,000 and then 30,000 feet. on west jet we were flying on altitude 39,000 feet with less turbulence. thanks"

Pros: "Crew, entertainment, food was 3/5 not many options (I liked it more than not)"
Cons: "No wifi, food selection wasn't really optional and it felt like school lunches"

Pros: "Newer plane, clean bathrooms for most of the flight. Good food choices for meals."
Cons: "No amenities like eye mask, ear plugs, toothbrush etc. No snacks between meals except for pretzels. Armrest buttons get pressed all the time by accident."

Pros: "The entertainment was great though the sound quality was lacking. The movies with subtitles were better."
Cons: "The did was pretty dire. Cup of noodles was not a good lunch at all and they ran out of the breakfast and lunch options."

Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. Food was not bad. I could never get a coffee, because they are not allowed to serve hot drinks when the seatbelt sign is on, which it was for minor turbulence during both the dinner and snack service. Would have been nice if they came around again after the turbulence ended for those who wanted hot drinks, but this is just a minor complaint."

Pros: "The choice in entertainment The flight attendents New plane"
Cons: "Flew on a new BOEING 777-200LR. They decided to maximize the amount of passengers per flight by adding additional seats to each row causing very cramped conditions. I am only 5'8" at 160 lbs and was extremely uncomfortable the entire trip. I may have had an extra inch of room from my knee to the chair in front of me. I couldn't stretch my legs out at all."

Cons: "The flight was 4 1/2 hours late with no prior notification."

Pros: "Seats were as comfortable as it could get for long haul economy flight. Food was decent everything was clean."

Pros: "Great food and overall service for premium economy. Seats were more comfortable than economy I've had in the past."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment computers are extremely laggy compared to modern tablets. Air Canada should make friends with the Google and Apple's of the world. Should try to include more episodes of the tv shows rather than just a select few episodes."

Pros: "I was very kindly provided an upgrade and seat beside was empty, it was a great flight. thank you!"

Pros: ".... the very logical humane boarding, special attention to kids and older citizens."
Cons: ". no vegetarian options.... nothing outstanding or comfort feel... nothing that would make me choose the airline as a preference over others ~ other than the price"

Cons: "Not enough workers. Flight crews so stressed that they ignored passengers."

Pros: "The flight was direct and the food service was good and spaced at timely intervals. The crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Lengthy flights are tiring."

Cons: "Our preceding flight arrived 45 minutes late so we got bumped to a later flight. Air Canada dropped the ball completely"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly from beginning to end."
Cons: "It was a packed flight and it felt like I couldn't breath on the flight at times. I was stuck between two very big people."

Cons: "It was cancelled"

Cons: "Getting the last seat on the plane that does not recline for a super long flight. Having that chair also have a busted headrest."
