Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It was ok...I always find paris-jeddah better than Frankfurt-jeddah (in food service, plane size, entertainment...etc)"
Cons: "Food level need to improve...The chicken meal was not well prepared, and the chicken needed to be cooked well... flight attendent was nice and switched to a beef meal."
Cons: "Would've been better if Air Canada had not downgraded the land to a propeller plane!"
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "there were two really rude flight attendants....almost like they didn;t want to serve you. One of the ladies even literally threw a drink onto my tray. thank god it was sealed. Air canada needs to do a better job of dealing with this type of behaviour. It happens far too often with their staff"
Pros: "On time, clean and comfortable"
Cons: "The only challenge for me was they couldn't take my form of payment on the plane for some food so I was out of luck. I had a Mastercard debit from the states. It is also a loss of revenue for you guys as well. They couldn't take the apple pay from the passenger next to me either. I know it's a lot of systems to update"
Pros: "Exit seating with more leg room."
Cons: "No power plugs in a 4h+ flight is not acceptable. That should be standard for every passengers. Unclean seats. General abrasiveness from some of the staff."
Cons: "No more seats, rescheduled for the next day. poor service"
Pros: "Everything went well From boarding to exiting the aircraft."
Pros: "Seating is more spacious then most"
Cons: "Customa in yul is a bit of a hassle, but not that bad."
Cons: "Mechanical issue with the plane. Sat on the tarmac for 2 hours without regular updates or any information. Missed connection as a result. Have been traveling for 19 hours still not in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Business class seat"
Cons: "Mpvie choices are terrible. They don’t know what “new releases” mean."
Cons: "Everything except the snow in Canada"
Pros: "the crew didn't do anything to make it horrible Large selection of movies/tv on board comfiest seats out of all the major airlines I've flown"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed bc of mechanical problems, and then eventually cancelled. They got the majority of people on a new plane, but the gates kept getting changed so it was a lot of back and forth. Plus the pretzels they gave us were stale. This was the second of two flights I took this trip that had mechanical issues, so they obviously need to fix their planes better or get new ones, because two Air Canada flights in one day that have mechanical problems leaves me worried that the planes aren't in optimal condition. It took me over 24 hours to get from Tucson, AZ to Montreal, Canada when normal travel takes less than 8 hours including layovers. I am worried about my return flights, not gonna lie (for my safety and time). Thankfully I'm returning a couple of days before I return to work, but I know other people that travel for business and that is a huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Flignt from Honolulu to Vancouver delayed. Return flight also delayed."
Pros: "Wireless was free and we were able to log on to the entertainment website to watch movies."
Cons: "Each chair didn't have a tv. There weren't any plugs to keep electronics charged up."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable. Tv choices were excellent- made the time pass much more quickly."
Cons: "No snacks provided, just options for sale. Those looked interesting though."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. Entertainment system was also mediocre which keep shutting down and have to again select your movie and forward it :("
Cons: "Over an hour late."
Pros: "Great crew and was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was expensive"
Pros: "Everything went well with this trip home, the service was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. A real improvement from earlier Air Canada flights. Flights left on time, a bonus."
Cons: "No complimentary snacks"
Pros: "Crew were likeable, worked hard and very friendly."
Cons: "However, waiting for a pilot, no snacks included, and an entertainment system that didn't work turned this flight from routine to a disaster."
Cons: "Flight canceled due to mechanical problems. Out of 4 agents at desk at airport only one knew what to do in case of a cancellation. They all stood around eating raisinettes! Unprofessional, lack of training, lack of planning (why wasn't another plane sent). One agent was going through the line giving out a phone number to call? Why weren't they trained? I called and thankful I was up at the desk so I could tell the agent what to do from the lady on the phone! Lost a day on our already short Christmas visit with family. Would love a refund!"
Pros: "Air Canada Cancelled the flight, which would have been ok, but their representatives left the airport instead of sticking around to help people reschedule. Their phone line was flooded with so many calls that you couldn't even stay on hold. And their email service takes at least 24hrs before you get a response. So effectively the entire airline was unavailable, even after canceling many people's vacations. I'll never fly AC again."
Pros: "I had a wonderful service. The airline changed flight for me when my scheduled flight delayed. So I could arrive in Vancouver on time. Thanks."
Pros: "The boarding in time, the crew very nice people."

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: "Staff communicated delays well, and they were polite once we got going. In flight entertainment offered was good, but heard some passengers having trouble with their screens not working."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. Theme of my vacation. When we arrived in Dallas we had no idea what baggage claim we were supposed to be at. There was no announcement, flight information displays didn't say anything."
Cons: "We missed our flight to Minnepolis we got a later flight home. We were tired and disappointed about getting home late. When we got to the gate our plane was still there but they said it was too late to get on but they delayed the plane 10 minutes to take our luggage off. We got a later flight. Not happy."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "New, clean plane. Well trained staff at the desk and on the plane. Left on time and arrived early. To keep cost down they have WiFi on board - you provide your own tablet or smartphone."
Cons: "This is Rouge the discount arm of Air Canada. As such the legroom is minimal. The announcements in both official languages were too fast. Get the announcer to slow down a bit!"
Pros: "This plane had entertainment on each seat and seats were more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "The plane was full and was running out of over head storage for people sitting toward the back and people already seated were being very rude about us slightly moving their bags to try to fit in ours. Some angry Spaniards were litterslly shouting at us for us moving their luggage a few inches at best! No help from the plane crew on this matter. They should really arrange boarding from both ends."
Cons: "Flight from Montreal to Vancouver was long with uncomfortable seats no pillow and no meals."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Boarding was very chaotic and our seats were originally booked together and someone needed up separate. In the end, the crew worked it out for us and we were satisfied."
Cons: "I've flown this airline a few times and the seats are pretty uncomfortable."
Cons: "Always delayed."
Pros: "Same plane as the one I flew on the way to Toronto. It's a really nice plane."
Pros: "entertainment system was pretty good"
Cons: "Air Canada generally charges too much and jacks up their prices way too much."
Pros: "Preferred seating was comfy"
Cons: "2 couples travelling together were assigned 4 seats I opposite ends of plane, no two together and no chg option. Discovered that seat next to my spouse was just assigned minutes before boarding. CSR at AC on phone was rude and unhelpful, boarding staff offered no help either."
Pros: "I liked that they were quick and nice service."
Cons: "No games for entertainment."
Cons: "Terrible attitude to a customer (not me). I asked for a US custom form and it took them an hour and two people to do that."
Pros: "Loved the movies and fairly comfortable seat with good legroom."
Pros: "Aircrafts decent legroom, flight on time"
Cons: "2 and a half hour delay"
Pros: "The food was very good and hot for being served last. We got blankets and pillows that was a plus."
Cons: "I was disappoint that we were not informed that we had to have wifi to use the entertainment system or rent iPads for $10.00. That is not right and your app. sucks to use. Please redo or get a new web person. So overall it was long a trip for people with children because they also had nothing for them to do. Fix this problem soon."
Cons: "Food was very poor compared to other international flights I've been on. The staff was not very friendly I'm sorry to say!"
Pros: "everything was smooth / great service"
Cons: "AC was too cold for 6am in the morning. very uncomfortable"
Pros: "when I landed"
Cons: "First off the the plane was mid takeoff and stopped which terrified the passengers and crew. Then we learned the plane had technical issues which lead to a 50 minute delay, then air canada did nothing as in terms of compensation. My audio jack for the entertainment system was broken, seat 19F on flight 617 by the way... Then I got up to use the washroom and when I came out I had to wait 30 minutes at the back of the plane standing until the servers were done serving drinks and snacks/food. Then the landing was terrifying as the plane was swooping/shaking much more than normal, even the board crew looked a bit worried. Could NOT wait to be done of the flight, one of my worst ever."
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable. Especially head rest."
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Cons: "Seats that are too small for a 6 foot male. No leg room."
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"

Pros: "They accommodated us by putting our seats together. I really appreciated that."
Cons: "Constant delays with this airline, I avoid it."
Cons: "There was no legroom on this flight, my knees were literally pushing up against the seat in front of me. I had to sit straight up and down to fit. It was by far the least comfortable flight I have ever experienced."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "The seats are way too small. Very uncomfortable for such a long flight. This is unacceptable. Also, Frankfort airport is too big and the connection required walking a very long distance. I will not be connecting here again and I will not fly United if other airlines fly to the same locations."
Pros: "I enjoyed the upgrade in my seating"
Pros: "The flight was excellent"
Pros: "Competent, organized, pleasant and efficient staff, on time"
Pros: "It was what I expected, a long flight in economy. Nothing special -nothing terrible. Check in went smoothly."
Cons: "One restroom was inoperative, so there were long waits to use the restroom. For long flights, it would be nice if all restrooms were available."
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."

Cons: "Because I was seated in the rear near the engines, the announcement from crew were incomprehensible."
Pros: "The flight crew were kind and professional"
Cons: "My nonstop flight was cancelled and I was given a replacement flight with a layover. The cancellation was given with short notice and made for a stressful ride to the airport in oreder to make the new flight time.The layover was supposed to be one hour and ended up being 3 hours. This was very disappointing and exhausting flight. The ride was fine once on board"
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Pros: "flight left relatively on time"
Cons: "I chose my seat online but got a different seat when I received my boarding pass. Why? I chose an aisle seat that was empty as I'm tall and it's more comfortable. I got a middle seat instead. Why let people even choose seats if it doesn't matter?"
Cons: "I am furious with Kayak. I bought online 1105 am flight and it switched me without permission. When I arrived at airport and realized what happened I had no choice but to pay 150 USD to return it to my original purchase. Kayak owes me 150 USD. Thank You"
Cons: "Same as above same as above"
Pros: "The seats in first class were ok, not wonderful. Too expensive for only 'okay'."
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"

Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "I missed my flight to San Diego from a connecting flight by a few minutes. Now I have to sit in the airport for over three hours waiting for my next flight.. not to mention it's my bday. Thanks United."
Pros: "The international flights were fine."
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "UA1742 plane (777) is a poorly designed piece of junk. The call button for the flight attendants sits right where everyone's elbow rests, and as a result the flight was 4 hours of constant dinging despite 3-4 announcements of the problem. it is unbelievable that this seat was designed in this matter. Incredibly poor engineering."
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Only one person to help assist my husband who is a paraplegic from the chest down I had to help assist him in his seat before we was dropped. We had a delayed take off and was promised free direct tv and was never granted that access the whole flight. The crew started their safety presentation while the video presentation kept tryin to start and stop very unprofessional. The garbage Cart never made it down the aisle I threw our garbage in the bathroom."
Pros: "Flight attendant, Annelle, was very attentive and friendly throughout the flight. The other flight attendants were as well"
Pros: "Check in was easy. bags made it."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway because of security "issue.""
Pros: "Flight was early!"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "I didnt like how i had chosen a seat a month before the flight and then its like i never asked for one"
Cons: "The flight kept delaying over and over again and they landed on another airport which delayed my arrival to my final destination even further."
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Cons: "Noone from the airline felt the need to let me connecting flight know we had been delayed so I ran a very long distance just to miss my flight by 2 minutes. The first flight should have absolutely notified the second flight to hold off for 5 minutea because we landed late, they were both the same airline. Handled very poorly and I was stuck in DC overnight."
