Cons: "JetBlue is amazing and my favorite airlines for domestic travel."
Cons: "clearly communicate delays. We had no idea what was happening or what our options were."

Pros: "Ride was great"
Cons: "Had to pay for earphone"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Very unorganized. They called Grioup A, then before that group was 1/2 done they called the next, and then the next. Passengers were crowding in. The check-in people were disorganized"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the staff was very nice."
Cons: "The wifi did not work at all and my TV did not work so I had to listen to my music the entire trip."
Pros: "LOTS OF LEGROOM"
Cons: "They have a habit of not being ontime"
Cons: "The new security check in with the automated bins."
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi, TV Channels, legroom"
Cons: "Asked the stewardess to have a blanket and water she had not brought. Service was bad ."
Pros: "The early boarding for families with strollers and the comfortable seats with a little more space than other airlines."
Cons: "2 hr delay. Poor ventilation"
Cons: "We are still on the plane. Can’t get off because there is lightning in the area. Ridiculous. It is raining lightly. I would really like to get off the plane"
Cons: "I have a problem with my ears, and asked the crew for nozzle drops, they don’t have"
Cons: "Flight over 3 hours late leaving. Flight attendants rude, and nothing comped for drinks or food to make up for it. Had to circle for 45 min due to weather. Sat on tarmac 30 mijn on other end."
Pros: "Having a tv"
Cons: "Sound jack not working properly , older plane no amenities"
Cons: "When I went to check in for my flight all sets had been picked only the upgraded sets were available for an extra cost. So with saying that I went to the airport with out a set number think my family and I would get bumped, even if the email said they never over book their flight,this was my first time flying jet blue I wasn't going to trust an email so the hole time I was worried about that when I should have been enjoying my last day on vacation."
Pros: "The crew could not have been more helpful and pleasant making the delay bearable as they were overtly communicative w all via text, email, and in person keeping is updated! HIGHLT RECOMMEND and will definitely be flying again. :)"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. On time, all good things."
Cons: "An individual who was very overweight sat next to me and took up half of my seat as well. I understand we all deserv to ride comfortably and my intent is not to shame them. That said, if someone can’t put the armrest down I think the airline should require them to purchase both seats as it’s very uncomfortable to be in the position of having no seat for the entire ride. I’m an average sized person so it was a challenge but even tiny people deserve the full seat they purchased. There really should be a rule or something."
Pros: "Wide array of snacks and drinks, tv/movies to watch for free, excellent staff from beginning to end, and tons of legroom. The complimentary free check of my carryon way awesome."
Cons: "I liked everything! No complaints at all."
Cons: "Delay and 4 hours in the craft upon arrival to Chicago"
Cons: "Almost a 9 hour ordeal. 4 hour delay because of weather for flight because one crew that was supposed to take our flight had “timed out.” Didn’t take off til after 1am. Finally landed and sat on plane because a plane at our gate was “disabled.” It’s 4:33am, I’ve been off the plane for half an hour, no baggage coming out of the carousel yet and no sign of this absolutely horrific experience ending anytime soon."
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "Delay and the space between seats"
Cons: "I never got the opportunity to fly because I was stuck in unusual traffic in a tunnel for over an hour just minutes from the Boston airport. I was later told there was a fire. I called the 1-800-JETBLUE number and I explained that the situation. The agent said that there would be a $75 change fee and at 4:47 pm there were no more flights out that night and that I would also be charged the fare differential the following day. I quickly went on line and found a deep discounted fare on United for $56! When I got to the airport there were several other people with the same situation. Not a enough agents on staff and no concern that I might miss my new flight on United. Thank Gid I acted fast and got another flight that evening or I would have needed to spend the night in the airport like a woman and her mother traveling to San Jose! Need more professionalism !"
Cons: "Another plane mechanical issue causing another delay of over 2 hours."
Pros: "comfort of seats"
Cons: "Morons at Jet Blue took me in wheelchair to wrong gate and left me there, but for someone passing and asking me the flight I was on and learning the Gate had changed, which was not announced at Gate E2 I would probably have missed my flight."
Pros: "Good flight. The staff was nice, especially Chris. Nice to see complimentary beverages and snacks still offered on domestic flights."
Cons: "Seats are terrible, and getting worse every year, but thats coach on all airlines not just Jet Blue. Hard armrests, weirdly shaped bucket seats which are appalling in any other position than straight up with 90 degree waist bend. Thats not how humans sit for extended periods of time. A 5 degree recline is not a recline; its a joke. At least the tray table was bigger than my phablet, unlike Spirit where the napkins look like tablecloths on these ‘tables’. Overall, it is better than the cheapest airlines."
Pros: "The hospitality of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "When I got off the plane"
Cons: "it was late, the plane was dirty, the tv screens didn't work, and the seats were small."

Cons: "The Fly-Fi didn't work and the snacks were OK but hot food is always better."
Pros: "Seats were wide .lots of leg room..very friendly accomedating staff:) they smiled..imagine that!and snacks ...omg!!that we didnt pay for:) and teleivsions in the back of you re seat.great flight:)"

Pros: "leg room & movie"
Pros: "Service and customer support"
Pros: "Smooth flight, efficient and friendly staff throughout the entire process."
Cons: "I didn't choose a seat originally. When I checked in online the only seats left were the extra space seats. I had to pay $50. Also I was in the first row so I could not put my bag under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "It was too cold inside."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The seat in hard."
Pros: "Changed to 3 hour earlier flight WITHOUT extra "change fee". It was FREE !! Enjoyed in flight TV with FREE drinks and snacks. As United goes backwards in customer service and costs, JetBlue leaps forward. Good work JetBlue."
Cons: "More options in snack boxes and/or food items"
Pros: "Great support from the crew for when there was turbulence, I'm usually supremely satisfied with this airline but this time not so much."
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed 2 hours, then back to scheduled time, then updated saying it was delayed 3 hours.. Ended up being delayed 4 hours and once boarded we didnt leave for another hour. It was brutal. I was traveling for 24hrs that day."
Pros: "The plane had 2 wings"
Cons: "Staff is rude. Customer Service couldn't possibly be worst. All their food has meat in it. Staff is slow and incompetent. Never had a more dreadful experience with an airline. TAP IS THE WORST AIRLINE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED, and I fly 2 times a month."
Pros: "Jetblue left on time from JFK"
Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Hour delay"
Cons: "I recently requested an urgent response from Delta's customer service and received a reply stating reply time is 14-21 days. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, increased work load and decreased work force my response time is approximately 14-21 days."

Pros: "Everything was great. Seats, service, flight, crew."
Pros: "Comfy without the middle seats being filled! Good entertainment and inflight wifi!"

Pros: "Leaving early and getting home early. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "Changed Gates and airplanes after about a 4-hour delay Toward end of flight, the main cabin FA announced she wouldn’t be accepting half-empty water bottles as trash because Flint MI doesn’t have clean water. After an inconvenience-filled day, I thought this was pretty poor service and out of line"

Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."

Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty good, but not up to their usual high standards"
Pros: "Delta could not help FAA regulations, so it was not their fault our initial flight was delayed an hour and 50 minutes. The gate agents in Missoula were fantastic in trying to help us figure out connection options to Baltimore."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "Jamaica security and boarding, despite a crowded airport and gate, was very quick. Appeared chaotic but was friendly and efficient. Boarding was orderly and efficient. Flight was smooth, seats luxurious (comfort+ aisle and window seats with an empty center!). Arrival into ATL half an hour early."
Cons: "Only one offer of beverage on 3 hr. flight. "Food" at dinner time was chips or crackers. Arriving 1/2 hour early we sat on tarmac for 50 minutes before reaching gate. 20+ minute walk to customs, 30 minute line."
Pros: "A screen with free movies is nice."
Pros: "Great service throughout. Friendly attendants and easy boarding/deboarding processes. Would fly international with them again in a heart beat."
Pros: "On time flight arrival"
Cons: "Baggage Claim was very disorganized. They indicated bags were to be picked up at a carousel that was under construction. When we went to the service desk, they directed us to another carousel which was incorrect. There was no announcement made and there was a delay in updating the baggage claim board."
Pros: "Staff. Beautiful excellent"
Cons: "Need more food"
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"

Pros: "Very professional cabin crew"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "Lady said she was taking the seat I paid an upgrade fee for. Crew did nothing. Said I should take her seat."
Cons: "Expected to pay £30 just to reserve a seat. Most of the top airlines allow this to be done for free. It's about time that Virgin Atlantic followed suit."
Cons: "Repeat the message from above.."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "Agents at the ticketing countet were the rudest i have ever encountered in my years of flying. Had a problem and when i asked for their assistance was given the Delta 800 number and told to call and they walked off. When i called it was a 2 hour wait for an agent. Thank goodness for their app as i was able to.change my flight with the My Delta app. Also they had overbooked the flight and rather than giving assurance to people just told us to wait and "line up orderly"."
Pros: "GRU to ATL to LEX - all was fine. The plane from GRU to ATL was one of the nicer jets I have ridden in. The ratings above reflect my overall trip of going to Sao Paulo and returning to Lexington, even though the first part had to be re-booked on United."
Cons: "LEX to ATL to GRU did NOT happen because the LEX flights were delayed to the point of missing the ATL connection. While Delta re-booked me on United, my flight arrived 3 hours later than scheduled (so transportation plans had to change), my bag did not successfully move from the Delta flight to the United flight (and was thus delayed in getting to GRU) AND once the bag was received, 4 shirts had been stolen. While a delay/theft claim has been filed with United, this could all have been avoided if the Delta flights had been on time."
Pros: "First flight I have ever flown that offered free beverages of all kinds. Food wasn't too bad. Entertainment choices were outstanding. Pilot was like a tour guide."
Cons: "Cramped space for 14 hours. Some crew were somewhat grumpy and seemed rushed, even though we had plenty of time."
Pros: "Upgrades, staff on and off the plane"
Cons: "The reservation system crash, it happened less than 24 hrs before our return flight to come home, fortunately it was resolved but it was a bit stressful"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Unsmiling, miserable staff. Seats like concrete. Cheap and nasty snacks"
Pros: "As always seats are spacious"
Cons: "They weren't selling food on this flight which is entirely too long to be without a meal"
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Pros: "Great customer service at check-in, gate and wonderful crew! The flight attendants were some of the best I've had on any airline."
Cons: "We were seated in the back row and the seats did not recline. What made that even worse, is they are COMPLETELY upright. I mean you are sitting at nearly a 90 degree angle! The other rows un-reclined had more recline than the last row. This was an older 737 and those seats never should have been installed on that plane. Luckily, there were a few empty seats and we were able to move, although not together. 3 of our 4 flights were on newer planes, and on one other flight we were also seated in the back row. But, those seats reclined and were as comfortable as any other seat on the plane. COPA, if you're reading this, kudos to your great operation, but do NOT use that horrible old 737 on such a long flight. Or, only use those seats for standbys!"
Cons: "Get with the times and stop using plastic cups."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They were very attentive throughout the course of the flight."
Pros: "the only plus was that the plane had TVs and blankets, and a meal. otherwise, not much"
Cons: "Everything... not a good experience overall. We were significatnly delayed for no reason. poor communication, rude staff and no wifi. seats very uncomfortable..."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "Crew was great. A dinner meal and full beverage service is included ....remember when the Big airlines use to??"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise to have a security check at gate, especially when they took every ones water that was purchased in the secure area just outside of the gates!!! At least some signage about No Water bottles!!"
Cons: "When boarding from Panama City, the airline security crew at the gate screening insisted on taking my empty water bottle, I assume based on US regulations, even though it was clearly empty. When I pointed out that in the US, there is no problem with empty water bottles-- and the extra security is due to US standards-- they said 'this is Panama' and refused to return the water bottle. The rest of the crew was pleasant onboard the flight."
Pros: "Food was great, crew was great."
Cons: "This flight did not have the screens for each seat, leaving no choice to choose what to watch or to see flight info."
Cons: "Seats very small"
Pros: "The breakfast was good, warm, fruits were fresh."

Cons: "Very unpleasant experience with crew generally. Very surprising, given previous experiences with Copa."
Pros: "The seat had extra leg room, BUT..."
Cons: "The seat's cushion was pulled out from the backrest, making it a very uncomfortable seat & giving me Backpain. (This was the seat next to the window, not the middle seat.)"
Pros: "The flight attendants were good to everyone and the plane was either new or very close to it"
Pros: "Great overall experience. Hassle free."
Cons: "Lo últimos grupos deberían pasar primero."
Pros: "Nice crew and we left on time"
Cons: "No legroom whatsoever nice crew and we left on time"
Pros: "On time, clean, and non stop, the latter being the best! First flight was a newer plane, and appreciate the USB ports. Older plane on return flight, but got home safe and sound with a little extra time to spare. That's a good trip in my book."
Cons: "Nothing negative."
Pros: "Excellent service and room to stretch"
Cons: "We were late due to waiting for a crew member to arrive"
Cons: "No individual screen and no USB chargers. No snack or coffe before landing in an 5 and a half flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class. Awesome experience"
Pros: "Food decent. Alcoholic drinks included. Good service."
Cons: "No TVs on headrests. Sometimes not even a movie on a 5h flight??"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly. My flights were on time. Check in was easy."
Pros: "The flight attendants excellent customer services"
Cons: "An item stolen from my luggage"
Cons: "We did not have the little TVs"
Cons: "I went through security at Lima Peru (Jorge Chavez International), everything was fine. I arrived to Panama, and the gate was next door which is just great awesome. The bad part was that I had to go through a security check once again there, although I had not left the airport since I left Lima. I went through the exercise, I was told that there would be no liquids (8 oz bottle of water, soda, etc) allowed passed that check point. Yet they were selling these items next to the gate. It made no sense why this checkpoint and why the liquid restrictions. Once in the area if I wanted to go use the restroom or whatever I needed to go through the checkpoint. There were 6 Copa employees manning this station, that's extra expense that the company passes on to the flyer for a step that should be evaluated and look at to see why other airlines do not do this. I was not the only one getting frustrated with this setup, but also passengers that did not speak Spanish they could not communicate with Copa employees. I saw this liquid restriction with Spirit Airlines in Lima, and I decided not to fly with them any more, no matter how inexpensive their fares were. Spirit told us that it was US law that made them have people throw away their drinks, although they were bought in a secured area. To me this was just a way to charge for drinks on the plane. I never had to throw away my drink if I had bought it in a secured area."
Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "To board the plane in Panama City passengers had to go through a second security screening and were therefore unable to bring bottled beverages onto the plane. Once through this second security there was no where to purchase water. The free never came through the plane to offer more beverages after the meal service. Many passengers got up and corralled at the back of the plane to get water. I watched a flight attendant drink from one the large bottles herself and then presumably serve to a customer."
Pros: "Food was decent. All Crew very helpful and polite."
Cons: "I wished the longer flight had personalized entertainment in each seat instead of the shorter flight. I could have watched two movies on the longer flight instead of just one."
Pros: "This announcement by the pilot at the beginning of the flight turned out to be incorrect. Despite the fact that I did online check-in at least 23 hours in advance, I was seated way at the rear of the jet. As a single woman who looks unusual because half of my hair is shorter due to recent surgery; I sincerely hope I was not seated at the back due to my appearance. The other passenger seated with me was a very kind developmentally disabled young man. The placement in row 33 +/- only emphasized the many instances of turbulence on the flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The many occasions of turbulence on this flight."
Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Maybe a lil more movies"
Pros: "Friendly and Courteous employees. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Gates were not available upon arriving at destinations. Once we had to take a shuttle bus from plane to gate."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Comfortable leg room Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional service combined with good food"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."
Cons: "Me and my husband traveled with my infant son and thebstaff was very accomodating. They evn allowed us to change seats to ensure my son was not next to another person."

Cons: "The service and courtesy of the staff wasn’t great."
Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"

Pros: "The jet"
Cons: "No advanced seat assignments unless we paid $100 per person?! Recently flew Delta on same equipment (A321). Delta had in-seat entertainment & adjustable head rest"
Cons: "Waited on the tarmac for over an hour before departure with very little explanation."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, and pretzels are gross"
Pros: "Loved the seat back lcd entertainment"
Cons: "Not accepting Apple Pay. Who wants to dig out the wallet."

Cons: "No wifi, no personal TVs"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "It is good"

Pros: "Great crew support & well above the typical airline food."
Cons: "USB charging ports would been nice"
Cons: "Poor oversight by gate staff on limited carry-on luggage space caused departure delay, easily avoided for next time."
Cons: "Connections to US destinations now require your checked in baggage to be processed before you can proceed to your connecting flights. The real problem is that this is no sign or communications describing this. Everyone is simply stopped in the corridor and told that they cannot proceed farther until their name comes up green on a monitor. Unfortunately the monitor switches displays so frequently that it is almost impossible to read. In addition to that it seems names do not always appear on the monitor unless you get your boarding pass scanned a the desk (this is not communicated to you unless you ask why your name is not on the monitor at all). People late for connecting flights (because of inbound flight delays) are required to wait without explanation sometimes needlessly if they don't have a checked bag. A nightmare if you're trying to make your connection. In addition once you've cleared that hurdle you need to go through security again (something we were unprepared for since we were already in the secure area. You then proceed to customs and then your connecting flight (if you haven't already missed it by then). Allow lots of time to get to your connecting flight, and ask to get you boarding pass scanned at that mysterious "checked bag" stop in the corridor."
Pros: "The flight was on time and there was adequate foot room"
Cons: "No free snacks- biscuits or pretzels?"
Cons: "Seats for connecting flight were given away before connecting flight boarded and rescheduled flights didn’t provide purchased level of service"
Pros: "The efficiency."
Cons: "The fact that I paid all this money and yet I couldn't get a decent meal. Unbelievable. I've been flying for years -- long enough to remember when flying was less expensive and we actually got more. Today we pay all kinds of taxes and fees; we pay to bring our luggage (as if we could pay for a ticket to go abroad and do so without clothing), and yet we get get less for our dollar. I wish someone in the offices actually thought about that AND did something to make flying with Air Canada what it was."
Pros: "55 minutes before flight, after getting boarding pass they refused to accept baggage. Had to overnight at my expense."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work, but only at my seat, after rebooting from electrical problem."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "كل شي"
Cons: "Late flight No communication Had done pre register to sit with father. They changed his seat upon boarding."
Pros: "Service flight on time food"
Cons: "No movies for 7 hour flight"
Pros: "Departure was orderly and staff interactions good"
Pros: "Flights were on time and very comfortable"
Cons: "I arrived at the gate and looked at my ticket to see "GTE" where the seat number usually is. I was informed upon arriving at the desk at the gate that that meant Air Canada has also decided to participate in the ridiculous practice of overbooking their flights and that even though I purchased my ticket roughly 8 weeks prior, there was a chance I might miss my flight to my friend's WEDDING. The lady who was working the desk was as unhelpful and dismissive as you could possibly imagine, refusing to look at me and giving me attitude for merely waiting in the area to see if anyone had missed the flight so I could get on. It was surreal; the only way I could describe her incomprehensible behavior would be to say it was as if her boss were right in front of her and she was trying her damnedest to get fired. It was one of those situations where you could tell this miserable, miserable person was enjoying the power trip she was on and doing everything in her power to make me feel helpless and angry. I made my flight, miraculously, but it was the worst customer service experience I have ever had in my life, airport or not."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "We landed on time."
Cons: "Flight attendant asked if I needed headphones and I said yes,her reply : I need a credit card"
Cons: "First flight was canceled, they did not get me on a flight till 4 pm the next day! Not to mention the two French Canadians I talked to were extremely rude. Finally the 3rd customer service women tried to get me home sooner but was unable to!! Have flown for years on air Canada without issues but this last trip was such an inconvenience I will not being flying with them agin!! They also did not cover my hotel or the taxi costs associated with me having my flight canceled, not even a discount!!!!!"
Cons: "Four hours of delays."
Cons: "The boarding lady on lines 3-5 was rude with several people."
Cons: "Spent extra 12 hours at the airport"
Pros: "Fast loading and unloading."
Cons: "they made a bunch of people check bags for plane which normally in my past experience has just gate checked larger bags. i'm not sure why they needed to check the bags, and we got away with not having to do that, but it seemed unnecessary"
Cons: "The fact that my ticket said something different from my itinerary and I spent far too long at the counter to get a seat assignment."
Cons: "We were late getting into Chicago and I missed my connection to Albuquerque. I was scheduled to arrive at my destination at noon and because we were late, I didn't get home until almost midnight."
Pros: "Being transported safely to yyz"
Cons: "How cheap the airline is compared to west jet and caribbean airlines"
Pros: "Seats had a decent amount of room."
Cons: "Aircanada'swe boarding system is again and everyone in later zones just blocks everyone else. Due to issues mentioned on the flight above my husband didn't get his luggage. We are still waiting."
Pros: "Legroom of seat, on demand and complimentary entertainment system and stable connection of Wifi."
Cons: "Delay of the flight..."
Pros: "Why is it ok for flights to the US to always be 20-30 mins late ?"
Cons: "Delayed flight and tv screens were not working well"
Pros: "I liked the boarding lines based on groups."
Cons: "Only was offered a small bag of mixed snacks and a drink."
Pros: "Was arbitrarily assigned a seat with extra legroom. No excessive turbulence; landing was smooth."
Cons: "I was among the last to board and had to place my carry-on under the seat in front because there was no room in the overhead bin. This kept me cramped the entire time despite the "preferred" seating. Soft drink servings were really skimpy."
Pros: "Quick flight, on time."
Cons: "The TV's in the back of the seats didn't turn on for this short flight."
Pros: "The staff were friendly"
Cons: "The flight ran late and we were not kept up to date on what was going on....... In addition I prepaid for my meal and when the trolly service got to me in row 33 they told me the food was finished but I could get some snacks. They then brought me a variety of snacks. It was my understanding that a meal would have been available to customers in flight once it has been prepaid.. This was very poor customer service"
Pros: "Crew was late on first leg delayed 3 hours than nobody to close the cabin door from outside ,missed connecting flight. Than did not have inventory in Chicago to out up in hotel had to pay out of my pocket and to this day can't get hold of customer service to get claim resolved. Sent through email and nothing. Even went down to my airport in Phoenix to speak and no help. Also lost bag as well. Which later found by united not air Canada. Unbelievable"
Pros: "One Time. A very polite staff!"
Cons: "Finding an overhead luggage compartment was difficult. Some peoples luggage is over sized, and some stow two items."
Cons: "My trip was suppose to have two stops from Saint John to Louisville (one in Toronto and one in Chicago) but instead it ended up being a one stop flight from Saint John to Toronto to Cincinnati because I had to change my whole itinerary due to delays in air canada flights that caused me to miss my other connections. This made me to fly into an entirely different city and have my reception drive to get me for the only other option I was told by an air Canada representative was to take the delayed flight and miss my last connection and overnight Chicago (one of my original connections) and then fly to Louisville the next morning. This was not something I planned on doing and didn't have the time to do so had to find an alternative arrangement to get me close to where I needed to be. The first flight I was on from Saint John to Toronto was also delayed causing the flight to be late upon arrival at the Toronto airport. Not only that but then had to wait in line at the customs center for over an hour for only one customs officer was there to clear over 100+ passengers. Even if my other flights were on time I would have missed them due to the delays all around. Over all I was very displeased with how the day progressed, how I wasn't given much help from the air canada representatives at the airport other than them saying "there's nothing we can do" and for how the day continued to get worse with delays and problems all linked to air Canada."
Pros: "Got us home safely. Confortable seats."
Cons: "Left one piece of luggage behind. Had to wait for it to be sent on next flight."
Cons: "the gate changed FOUR times and passengers were never notified as there were no crew at the gate. The flight was delayed by two hours. there was no in-flight entertainment on board as it wasn't working. upon landing, we were forced to stay in the plane for an extra 30 minutes because the gate and crew were not ready. I was NOT impressed by this flight and am very upset with how things went. I expected better of AC and will not be flying again with them."
Cons: "Flight delayed, service with discrimination, pride, specially male crew, this is a really bad flight experience."
Cons: "Very bad cabin pressure -- lots of ear pain."
Cons: "There was some dripping from the ceiling on those of us in the back of the plane. It might have been condensation from the air conditioning or air flow nozzles. In the groove of the ceiling immediately over the seats there seemed to be some dirt or mold."
Cons: "Moving through security and customs in the Toronto airport was incredibly slow, with 4 or 5 checkpoints, all with lines. Staff were polite but there were not enough of them. We almost missed our connecting flight, and our bags apparently did miss it, because they have not yet arrived in Chicago (see previous comments). Air Canada should have seen the problem in terms of timing with the connecting flight and expedited better. Will try to avoid Air Canada in the future, especially if there are connections in Toronto."
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Pros: "Newer plane, tv monitors in coach class, on time departure"
Pros: "was forced to spend the night in Toronto because Air Canada didn't seem to know that there would be a huge crowd at the airport that evening. I was told as I exited my flight that I would not make the connecting flight and I had to spend the night in Toronto. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "The crew members in both the flights were amazing. they seemed like they enjoyed their job. Its not very common at Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Toronto was delayed by half hour. But the boarding gate agents did not even mention the delay."
Cons: "Team in Chicago at Baggage Services was not helpful."
Cons: "delay with no apology which was over 8 hours. the meal was or snack was terrible."
