Airline reviews

Pros: "Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387"

Pros: "Flight crew were friendly and engaging."
Cons: "Delta customer service- terrible when I called about reservation. Agent upon arrival at airport clearly not happy about 5am shift."

Pros: "Comfortable temperature in cabin!"

Pros: "Arriving in 2 hrs from Orlando to laguardia!"
Cons: "no tv .. I didn't like that we had to use our own electronic device to access the entertainment system."

Pros: "Cheking was easy. Service was excellent. Flight was on time and got to New York 20 mins before time"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Great staff, snacks and beverages. Plane was brand new and nice. I think it had humidifier which was really nice"
Cons: "No TV behind seat. Boarding was a bit messy"

Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."

Pros: "attendant frienliness, and communication."
Cons: "The plane. it is an unsuitable for more than one hour flight. The value for the money is down in the bottom."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."

Pros: "We purchased economy tickets in Delta. With these tickets you don't know where you are sitting until you get to the airport. Well, we lucked out and got the Plus seats! We got free alcoholic drinks, and big plush seats! We left right on time and got there early! Overall a great experience!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"

Pros: "I'm very Thankful that I had no delays departing and arriving I liked that the flight was on time"
Cons: "I wasn't aware of fees being in place to change for earlier or later flights. But the fees don't apply when the airline needs your seat. I value my time and was unpleasantly surprised that I had to wait 4hrs for my scheduled fligh bc I didn't have the fee to change to an earlier time"

Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, but due to weather. Not the airline's fault. They got us here sooner than I thought we could arrive. Plane was tiny"

Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."

Cons: "Seats are very small."

Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."

Pros: "Loved the new aircrafts, the flight attendants were friendly and attentive. We landed 40 mins earlier than expected, the captain really sped the whole way and I didn't feel a thing!! The landing didn't even feel as though we were speeding...one of the best flights I've ever had (Jessica England) thank you!"
Cons: "Food options, early morning flights I get you're not going to have real food, but can there be an option to purchase a bagel with cream cheese or croissant, something other than a snack box. I understand the flight is under 3 hours so certain foods aren't available but Delta you upgraded everything else. I enjoy the Tapas box for those that are vegan, kosher, gluten free, etc....PS-the bathrooms are smaller"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"

Pros: "Everything, confort, pilot's comunication..taking different route to NY to avoid weather, and wind problem."

Cons: "Awful experience. Delta left us stranded on the runway for 3 hours. Pathetic airline."

Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."

Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."

Pros: "the plane crew were nice"
Cons: "ok wont fly delta if i can avoid it"

Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."

Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Delta. They just hate their passengers"

Pros: "Return trip was 30 min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay getting to NYC"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the basics of drinks, snacks, carry-on, seat selection, and entertainment for the price of what other airlines charge for just a flight with nothing else included."

Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"

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

Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."

Pros: "Nice power nap, quick flight!"

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."

Pros: "I got home. That's the highlight. We didn't have any incidents."
Cons: "Took off late because the bus to transport flight attendants were late. Backed up once into New York. Had to circle several times. Once landed we waited in a queue behind 10 aircraft."

Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."

Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."

Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"

Pros: "30 min. early!"
Cons: "Only pretzels"

Pros: "Arrived sooner than expected! Nice, smooth flight despite cloudy, rainy day."
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I will avoid the airline at all costs"

Pros: "Flying Delta is always a great. Gate agent and crew are top notch."

Pros: "The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport."
Cons: "Delayed for 5.5 hours."

Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."

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: "The flight , was delay for 3 hrs..I have to take anoth flight."
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "I was simply trying to relieve myself using the restroom in the back. I had held it in the entire time during take off but I desperately needed to go. The seatbelt sign stayed on for an eternity so I decided to get up to go when I felt it might be ok. Another gentleman also did so, he didn't get yelled at but I got an earful from the flight attendant and she assumed I didn't speak English because I couldn't respond while trying to hold my nladder."

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in Montreal for about an hour."

Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "Flight was more than hour delayed. When it hit the turbulence zone it was insanely scary. I know it's nobody's fault but leaves bad felling about the flight."

Pros: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Cons: "Getting stuck at the boarding area for 6 hours in normal weather with no particular hazards for flying. Crew was good. They did their job."

Pros: "This time I didn't have to pick up my luggage in Toronto, it was lucky!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Movies!"
Cons: "Food.."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Pros: "Had to rebook and was oven wrong information when I caked . Ended up paying for a new ticket"

Cons: "Flight was delayed again and again. Construction at Laguardia made leaving the airport a nightmare."

Cons: "delayed. no explanation for a long time. no agent at gate for alot of the time."

Cons: "Delayed as always"

Pros: "Les sièges étaient spacieux."
Cons: "2 vols chez Air Canada, 2 vols annulés !! Plus de 4 h d'attente à l'aéroport !! 1 vol en raison de la météo (no comment) et l'autre en raison d'un nettoyage à faire de la réserve de carburant... Dédommagement minime de 10$ pour s'acheter qch en attendant !! J'espère avoir plus en contactant le service client..."

Cons: "Gate change but no announcement"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. The delay was announced after we had boarded and sat in the plane. Not acceptable. For the delay all that was served was water after about an hour, and pretzels and soft drink after two hours. Not acceptable."

Pros: "Very kind crew, comfortable seats, good movies"
Cons: "I was never notified by text or email that the flight was delayed 2 hours! There was never an announcement made about options to standby for earlier flights. I had someone waiting for me at the airport for 3 hours! The flight home was very chaotic."

Pros: "We received generous vouchers, when our flight was delayed prior to its cancellation."
Cons: "The only disappointing thing about our flight was the cancellation without warning and explanation. We then had to work to get on a new flight as some of our party were not automatically re-booked."

Pros: "Movies for free, although the seat next to mine didn't work. Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Some of it was air canada, some of it was weather and some of it was the montreal airport. scheduled for 6:00 rescheduled 7:00 rescheduled 8:00 boarded 8:30 took off 10:00 1. air caanda - boarded the plane, then came on with announcement that we would be sitting on tarmac for an 1.5 hours. We were delayed for hour and half already, why load us and make us sit in a warm aircraft. Air Canada offered us 10.00 vouchers for dinner... problem was they did it so late nothing was open. It should have been done earlier. 2. weather - caused the initial problem in NYC, no fault of air canada. 3. Montreal airport - Our gates were switched 3 times during the delays. Which happens, however the gate changes started at one end of the airport, moved to the other end of the airport and back to the original end."

Cons: "flight was cancelled after being loaded and pulled away from the terminal. waited for over 2 hours on the tarp and then they said the crew had run out of time and could not fly. They took us off of the plane and did not rebook us. It took everyone over two hours to get rebooked for the next day or even two days later. They almost had a revolt on their hand since they did not have a representative talk to us until the passengers started yelling at them. Very poor customer service. Just horrible."

Pros: "Seats are quite comfortable. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Suitcase costs money. Food was ok. No headphones for entertainment. I felt it was like a low cost flght but we paid a regular price."

Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "Plane was old"

Pros: "I don't like air canada"
Cons: "Check in crew was rude and awful. Flight cancelled without notification, thankfully the minute we noticed I called customer service. Waited an hour on hold before luckily grabbing 2 last seats on a flight going out the next morning."

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy.."

Cons: "Why have automated checkin and then still have to wait in massively long line to drop off your luggage. Do it like Jet Blue or Virgin or any of the other airlines.......you show up, auto check in, bag tags, separate line for smart efficient people to drop off their bags and get on with it. Its just so inefficient and puts a complete damper on the trip......maybe curbside checkin also."

Pros: "Flight was delayed from take off by ATC @ LGA for two hours, flight attendants served us with refreshments & free ear phones, meanwhile the Captain kept us completely updated on the delay"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The return seizing was great, also, with the check-in person ensuring I could sit alone."
Cons: "I still deplore that we are not given a glass of wine or a beer. Come on. Such a small gesture would make such a difference."

Pros: "Service was on time & staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight back, we had to wait on the airplane for a good hour before we could disembark. But that was due to heavy traffic at the airport and not the fault of the airline."

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

Cons: "Lack of refreshment choice."

Cons: "Never again"

Cons: "Declined !!!! So long"

Pros: "that we landed safe"
Cons: "that the plane was delayed snd we were keept in side like sardines"

Cons: "Fact that when my flt was delayed it was too late notice and then when it got cancelled no communication. Poor customer service. ."

Cons: "Air Canada cancelled the flght without notification. Sat in the airport from 10:45 in the morning until boarding call at 13:30! There were 8 cancelled flights to NYC because of Toronto return scheduling conflicts resulting from runway repair work. Air Canada customer service desk was horrible."

Cons: "Flight cancelled without ever receiving any notice -- I found out when I was in the security line. Waited 1.5 hours to talk to an agent. On standby for 7 hours. No food vouchers. Air Canada agents gave very little information, didn't care at all that they had cancelled dozens of flights."

Pros: "Seats Comfortable. Drink service was effiicient."
Cons: "An hour to get a gate upon landing. Unacceptable. Crew did not push passengers to get luggage stowed. They did not seem very concerned about boarding efficiently. Cup size on drinks is stingy."

Cons: "Late flight No info given to passengers"

Pros: "My 55 min flight ended up taking nearly 3 hours since there were about 9 people that needed to gate check their bags. Air Canada needs to figure a better way to gauge the carryon situation. People had giant bags that just couldn't fit in the overhead. Also- there were far too many people with carry one. I paid to check my bag... then got stuck with my backpack under my feet and jacket in my lap for 2.5 hours as we sat on the runway."
Cons: "To be honest, nothing specific stands out. The whole ordeal was pretty much a nightmare. We were offered some pretzels and water while we sat on the runway for hours."

Cons: "Nice flight"

Cons: "My original flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems and then agent got me in a other flight to Newark which was the last one to NY and then there was a delay of at least 1hr to take off. Most likely, I will not travel with air canada again and I'm not recommending to friends since they are always delay with their flights."

Pros: "Nothing to expect more"
Cons: "The amount of snacks served should be increased"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and nothing to drink was provided."

Pros: "Captain gave us regular updates"
Cons: "LGA closed for wind. We sat on taxi road for 2 hours. Crew could have served more than water while we waited. No AirCanada's fault but crew should have a plan to serve the snacks/ food if we are sitting for two hours and the total flight time is 1.5 hours."

Pros: "ok"

Pros: "Free snacks , on board entertainment, friendly warm crew."

Pros: "the short flight"
Cons: "the comfort and location of seats ran around for days acquiring a doctors note for easy access seating. grateful for the refund but would've rather paid and actually been accommodated."

Pros: "I arrived home safely. I needed"
Cons: "I needed assistance as I have a broken ankle. Waited, waited and waited some more for assistance. Handed off 5 times until I got to the gate. Given a seat first in the exit row and naturally had to have that changed as I could not assist others. Placed even further back in the plane. It took the full three hours plus since deplaning the Austrian Air flight to get to the Air Canada gate."

Pros: "Crew are very friendly and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "For the huge amount of money they charge us for national flight with no included meals or even snacks its ridiculous!!"

Pros: "Mechanical..missed connection in Toronto"

Cons: "Delayed flight rough landing"
