Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went smooth."

Cons: "For an hour long flight, it seemed like enough time to serve more than just 4 choices; 1 beer, 1 wine, juice or water. I’ve been on flights that were 45 minutes and served an entire meal. Of course, what they do is still great and I am very grateful."
Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "Always like Alaska flights"
Pros: "Nothing. Zero. You treated me so poorly. I will never use you again. Absolutely the worst experience of my life."
Cons: "Customer service. Customer service. Custoner service."
Pros: "Free WiFi movies & text. Mai Tai on end of trip"
Cons: "Crowded seats & isle. Noisey cabin. Can not hear PA system Checked in on web site but on arrival to airport our seats were rearranged overnight But corrected without major irritation!!!"
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."
Pros: "Crew was nice - it was not their fault this flight was horrible"
Cons: "Plane was super hot, no food at all, entertainment didn’t work, was late and then for some reason they randomly split up the coach boarding and let the people who had t been waiting on a head of the people who had been lined up for almost an hour"
Pros: "Very comfortable and pleasant flight."
Cons: "Kept us sitting on the plane for over 3 hours without baby notification of when we’d leave. Yet had us board and claimed on time."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and they offered me wonderful tea."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The booking through Kayak was quick, easy and accurate and the actual flight from SJC to PDX was on time and comfortable, even in the main cabin."
Cons: "The Alaska gate attendant at SJC, whose name I would provide but then this review might not be accepted, was very discourteous and non professional. He displayed exceptionally poor customer service. This was in contrast to the cabin attendants and other crew members. His demeanor was such that it may discourage me from booking with Alaska in the future. BTW, this was my first flight with AS in many years. I do fly a lot but use other carriers."
Pros: "The only perk was the complementary drink while flying."
Cons: "Basically everything. This was for a connecting flight. We had to go through customs and security twice at the Portland airport because the employees gave us wrong information. They offered us a shuttle to our gate since we were running late, and then the shuttle dropped us off on the completely opposite end of the airport. We literally had to sprint across the airport with 15 minutes until our plane left, and go through security our second time where the employees were rude and not even slightly helpful. While on the plane the crew was less than friendly and short with passengers. After we landed, someone from our group was also missing their bag and was informed it was left behind in Oregon and wasn't even loaded onto the plane. Seriously the worst airport, worst crew, and worst flying experience I've ever had."
Pros: "I like that they board from the back of the plane to the front. so much less awkward."
Cons: "I have a laptop bag on rollers that fits under the seat in front of me, but i got challenged with some incredulous doubt by the gate ticket taker. I get people try to lug a bunch on the plane, but it gets old when the bag fits, I shouldn't get hassled."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean plane, loved that there was USB and power outlets in every seat, on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "In Denver, the boarding process was well organized and directed by clear announcements and boarding lanes."
Cons: "In Seattle, the boarding process was chaotic and mismanaged. The ground staff gave confusing and ambiguous instructions that resulted in everyone forming a large, disorganized throng in front of the gate agent. It was as if they said "everyone get on the plane immediately, and we are only taking the first 30 people"."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Made up time after a mandatory tire change."
Cons: "Other passengers not listening to the staff."
Pros: "Enjoyed the beer and wine."
Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"
Cons: "I had a problem with my name, they took 7 hours to tell me that I had to pay to have my mane changed and rebook my flight, we try to do that and they took another 7 hours to tell me that they didn't have any availability in the next 3 MONTHS! and there was nothing they could do for me, only keep my money and sell my spot to someone else on waiting list and make doble or triple the money!"
Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."
Pros: "The flight attendants are always as accommodating and kind as possible. I was flying with my cat and they made sure put me in a row where nobody was allergic to him, and checked on us several times to see if they could help in any way."
Pros: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"
Pros: "Not only were we on time, we were early!"
Pros: "Good prices on snacks and food. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delays both routes There's nothing on website stating seatbelt extensions cannot be used in emergency seating area."
Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."
Pros: "Fine,same as the earlier flight..."
Cons: "Again, the size of the plane, interior."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "The staff at my connection in Seattle were not the friendliest."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, plane was clean and comfortable, and departure was on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a little disorganized - not due to the Alaska Air staff, but the space is a little awkward. The desk staff would announce the different times for boarding various categories, but it was hard to actually get in line because everyone was crowded around the area to line up, so those in the back could not get to the actual line."
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Pros: "Easy flight. No issues."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "All other airlines should take lessons from Alaska Airlines!!"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "No ear plugs in my amenity kit??"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "See previous comments."
Cons: "See previous comments."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly for the most part. There seems to be a chance in the way they interact with customers. It's noticeable. The food still is not bad, not great. Drink selection was pretty extensive and impressive. Free wifi for messaging apps is great."
Cons: "Electrical plug is right at your knee level. Bread is rock hard an inedible. Plane felt very dry compared to other Delta planes. Would be good to know when the Wifi will be off (as it is off as we "approach the North Pole"). I wish we didn't have to repack bags that are over 52lb."
Pros: "I like flying delta. They always serve drinks first"
Cons: "It’s such a long flight. Not your fault."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paying for seats"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Sleeping was too uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"
Pros: "After a delay of over 1 1/2 due to weather, we boarded and then waited for luggage. Then our pilot said our weight was too high so we sat and burned off fuel, which delayed us a half hour."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "Quick and easy."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Cons: "It was scheduled so late at night."
Cons: "Crowded seatibg"
Pros: "Entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "My upgrade was fabulous!"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"
Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Pros: "liked the pods in delta one"
Cons: "wish the pods were a little longer for sleeping. it your 6'1 or taller you can't completely stretch out"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "Good food. Great service"
Cons: "Small seats. Crowded."
Pros: "Smoorh travels"
Cons: "Economy seats mot comfortable for sleeping"
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."

Pros: "Updated plane, movies are old but a verity"
Cons: "Lost two pieces of luggage"
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Cons: "The food was supposed to be hot chicken was served cold"
Pros: "Online check in was very good. Liked the ability to select free seats ahead of 24hr window. Liked being air side for the whole trip Detroit airport Terminal A was good. Free WiFi 50mb + awesome. Crew were friendly and efficient Will do this trip again."
Cons: "Seat always seem uncomfortable after 3hrs anywhere! And more leg room would always help. Food was OK liked the choice of 3 meals difficult to do quality food for 200+ but keep trying to improve"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient. The seats were narrow, but as to be expected. Meals were fine. Will fly Delta again and again."
Cons: "Flight Minneapolis to Detroit was delayed which caused us to miss our original flight and go out a day later."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "We had to have the plane de-iced before we left but we still arrived in Houston earlier than originally planned. The flight was smooth and quick and with a flight that wasn't packed full I was very comfortable without a seat mate."
Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."
Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."
Cons: "Sat in airport for 8 hours while flight was delayed an hour at a time only to be cancelled after 8 hours of waiting. Had to rent a car and drive 10 hours to destination"
Cons: "This flight was significantly delayed while we waited for a late flight attendant to arrive. Delta offered us nothing but sad meaningless apologies. On top of that the PA system at the gate didn't work so finding out news as to what was going on was extremely difficult."
Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."
Pros: "On time, and direct."
Cons: "The spacing between seats has gone too far. The man in front of me caused my knees great pain when reclining."
Pros: "Smooth, nice flight. Excellence service, they tried to make up for the late pioltes, allowing to broad befriend they arrived."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, because the pilots were late. Not only was it delayed over an hour, but the flight itself was postponed twice because they knew they had a problem with scheduling."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Kept us updated throughout a long delay."
Cons: "We should have reached our destination at 7:40PM. We finally arrived about 9:50pm. We were held at the gate for about two hours while a mechanical issue was solved. The plane was not equipped with WiFi/internet and the entertainment was poor. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was slightly delayed (20 min). However, boarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was full so no option to distance."
Cons: "offer coffee at least"
Cons: "Be on time. Run planes that aren’t constantly breaking down."
Cons: "When you buy basic economy they put you in zone 9 for boarding. When i checked in online, they didnt even give me and my wife seats together."
Cons: "No había espacio para equipaje arriba."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "I've flown American airlines twice this year. The service and flights have been very good. One thing I'd like to see is a variety of snack options."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and I saw them be super accommodating to other passengers which made me feel good about using their airline."
Cons: "They should offer headphones"
Cons: "Boarded faster and a bigger plane to put roller bags in the over head bin instead of checking them"
Cons: "Too little leg room."
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The seat was tiny. It took forever. I hate you people."
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Cons: "small plane"
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "The only entertainment was streaming movies via your own device. Not the end of the world but most people have come to expect having personal video monitors. Delta is adding them but AA is taking away."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Pros: "I was not expecting the ample leg room and arm space. I was actually comfortable. It made such a huge difference in my day. The crew members were great and it was a pretty chill experience, which is not how I can describe any other flight in recent memory."
Cons: "The entertainment was just snippets from NBC shows that I’m not interested in. It was the same presentation on both legs of my trip, so even if I had been interested initially, I would have gotten bored the second time around."
Pros: "Everything but the seat. It did not have enough room and it was very unconfortable when the people in front reclined their seats back."
Cons: "Small seating space."
Cons: "Six “10 min delays” that led to a 1 hr plus delay"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable and on time"
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "Everything ran on time, which was surprising because I've heard horror stories, but I was surprised. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The landing was ROUGH!"
Cons: "My family and I make I JFK -LAX reservation 4 months ago. We came to LAX three hours before our flight to make sure we get good seats. At the checking kiosk we did not have the option to pick seats , there was a message on the boarding pass that said to go see boarding agent. So we did, appreantly they over booked the trip and they were looking for volunteers to give up their seats!! Why did we have to be on stand by if our booking was confirmed 4 months ago!! They made us wait until the gate was closed and then they found us seats . This trip caused us mental anguish I will never fly American Airlines again"
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "The pilot was a riot, the flight was on time. Again, nothing wrong, nothing special. As it should be (if only we had more leg and seat room, and I am pretty streamline)."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."
Pros: "Plane was clean; staff professional; no issues."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Pros: "Second leg when purchased extra leg room, that's the way all seats should be. We boarded timely but then left late. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. Lare departure."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
Pros: "Thank god for the classical music station channel 1. Flight going back was better in comfort, space and entertainment options. But still will choose airline more carefully the next time I fly."
Cons: "Plane was small and tight. Didn't have room for small duffle bag but accepted putting under my seat, even though I don't understand people trying to get on with two bags. Wifi not free in airport and didn't work. Wifi also not free on plane. Movie was nothing i wanted to see."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "We paid an extra $100 for each ticket for premium seating, supposed to be a step above the basic coach ticket with more leg room (my partner and I are 6'+), but our seats were no different than anyone else's. In fact, the seating chart the agent provided for selection when on the call to add this was not for this plane, as it turned out. We will be requesting a refund!"
Pros: "Very good on time, comfortable."
Pros: "Liked legroom in the emergency row and the quality of the new entertainment system."
Pros: "The flight was average. Small plane, short flight, no food or beverage service. Pretty average and nothing to complain about."
Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Pros: "Staff was nice and helpful."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "The food. Skip the cup of noodles."
Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."
Pros: "the flight crew offered us as many drinks as we'd like which was nice."
Cons: "the seats were quite uncomfortable even though it was a 5 hour flight. there was no food on flight other than for purchase, too expensive."
Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."
Pros: "Flight was quick, service was great, clean lavatories."
Cons: "Would've appreciated more legroom, but the same can be said for just about any airline."
Pros: "I've always had adequate flights with AC. No one goes over and beyond, but everything is as you would expect. A smooth flight."
Cons: "6 hour flight delay missed a whole day of vacation when we called customer service we were redirected to a adult sex hotline by your staff all we got was a 10 dollar voucher for our trouble never flying air Canada again"
Pros: "service is good"
Cons: "2 hour delay in takeoff caused our connecting flight to miss our bags. We barely made the flight."
Pros: "Meals were good and I do like the premium economy seats."
Cons: "One issue that the premium economy seats have is that they recline button is very stiff to push. Then when you have final pushed it in then push back on the seat it falls to the full recline position, potentially surprising the passenger behind. I thought this was isolated to this flight but have now encountered in 2 subsequent flights in AC premium economy."
Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I liked that we got a lot of food, and the movies were very good. Groups for boarding made sense and we boarded quickly"
Cons: "it was late and despite being 4.5 hours there were no free snacks or food. Only one toilet which we could never use bc of constant turbulence."
Pros: "The flight was nice and smooth and the crew members were so nice."
Cons: "4 hours delay with no explanation and the least of apologies."
Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"
Pros: "The flight was excellant. Something that horizon air needs to aspire too."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight, unless you are flying first class it's not going to be amazing."
Pros: "Good flight and on time."
Cons: "Much too cold, kept me from sleeping"
Pros: "From the views read I cannot say I had the same experience. Crew was helpful & kind. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Pros: "There were some pretty recent movies and some older ones that I remember watching when I was younger. Both options were good."
Cons: "Despite there being both new and older movies, there seemed to be a limited number of movies and shows. I feel like there could have been more, but it might be just me."
Pros: "Steward was funny"
Cons: "Small plane, wasn't told ahead of time that there was no carry on luggage and I had lap top I had to carry on and expensive camera equipment that had to be checked, would not have taken this flight if I knew this ahead of time."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The fact that 10 minutes before we were suppose to originally board the staff at DTW was trying to get people to give up seats because they oversold the flight which should have taken care of before that. It also doesn't help that the flight was late arriving and unboarding so that it could be reboard by new customers and updates were unhelpful and useless when attached to the plea for someone to give up their seats. 0 out of 5 stars...would NOT recommend."
Pros: "They had brand new film releases."
Cons: "I got bumped. Even though, I made my flight on time AND had chosen my seat over a month ago, air Canada decided to bump me from my international flight. I was able to get a seat but not the seat I would have chosen (I'm six foot, I can't sit by the window). Since it was so crowded, I couldn't stretch my legs or use the loo. Finally I PAID for the seat I was bumped from; no one can tell me when I'll get reimbursed."
Pros: "Air Canada has treated me excellently every time I've flown with them. However, this connection was through United, which, on my flight to LAX, was delayed 3 hours. I should have known how this would go."
Cons: "Since this flight was delayed, I would not make my connecting flight to Tokyo. Flights with Air Canada to Tokyo were all booked that day, and several days afterward. I canceled my flight and am awaiting refund. I booked with another airline. I am severely disappointed with United's behavior. I've flown out of several countries from various airlines, and the US and US-based airlines are the only flight with consistent delays. It's honestly embarrassing. And I suppose, while I'm complaining, I'll add--as someone with a severe peanut allergy, it was important that this flight was with Air Canada, who actually cares about my safety. That I had to miss my flight and book with another, potentially dangerous airline, added to my dissatisfaction."
Pros: "Asian flavored snack mix was way better than stale peanuts. Check in, gate, and attendant staff were A+."
Cons: "International flight over 6hrs, yet food not included on flight?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Service. Rude workers"
Cons: "I booked a seat to be seated right next to SO. However, upon check-in, they changed the seat without telling me. Fortunately, we were able to exchange seat to be seated together."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough movie or TV selection for 15 hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Lots of turbulence, but I know it is out of airlines control."
Cons: "Delayed, emergency landing, 3 hrs late arrival"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and the crew was very concerned about safety."
Cons: "There was no refreshments offered. Not even drinks!!"
Pros: "The Air Canada crew were great."
Pros: "Comfy flight, nice staff and great food!"
Pros: "Food was great, seat was comfortable, bathrooms much better designed. Overall cleaner and nicer aircraft."
Cons: "The flight was very late so even though we made our connection in Vancouver, our luggage did not. Not a peep of an apology from Air Canada either."
Pros: "The seat was to tight."
Pros: "Food was horrendous and staff for the most part ok but occasionally surly and unhelpful. not prepared to go the extra mile. Super uncomfortable chairs barely recline."
Pros: "No muss no fuss. Flight left 5 minutes early"
Pros: "It was only 1 hour."
Cons: "It was only 1 hour."
Pros: "courteous crew; partially empty flight so lots of space to move and lay out Food and entertainment good Air Canada is always a great airline to fly"
Cons: "Delay in SF departure attributed to "weather" resulted in missed connection and a 5 hour wait in Vancouver. Transfer from international flights to Canadian at YVR is quite cumbersome and involves much walking."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Pros: "food far below expectations. Crew was great!"
Pros: "They held the plane in order for me to catch it after my late flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The crew member promised my $60 in checked bags would still follow me, but when I arrived In Vancouver I was Informed they were still in Chicago. My seat did not recline and my reading lamp was broken after paying $80 for the upgraded seat. The flight attendant was a bit grouchy about it. The WiFi was very sporadic and didn’t work for the majority of the trip.. which I wasted 900 miles on. Not impressed this time around."
Pros: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."
Cons: "Confusing carryon regulations. Said “no carryons” so I repacked & when arrived at gate EVERYONE had full sized carryons...!"
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"
Pros: "Efficient, professional and speedy service"
Pros: "Nice new 737-800, friendly crew"
Cons: "I volunteered to be bumped to a later flight, which was handled well; however my checked bags did not get transferred. The baggage desk at YVR was very helpful, but the United lost bags office was unreachable by phone. They always had very long hold times."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice"
Cons: "The plane is very old"
Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"
Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "This flight was delayed an hour as United had maintenance issues with the plane. United sadly has a bad reputation for deferred maintenance on its planes in order to cut costs. They don't care about customer satisfaction, just the bottom line."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding on and off the plane was very easy"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortably. We had a nearly 6 hour flight with no tvs which wasn't great either."

Pros: "On time. The crew was good."
Cons: "Could not pick seats online. Party of 3 seated in 3 different rows"

Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice"
Cons: "Since it was an international flight we went to the international terminal and we were send back to domestic. This caused us to be delayed, though we had arrived early. They ended up giving me two boarding passes for myself and shorting me one for my son. More delays at the gate. The Air Canada confirmation number is different than the United and they have no record of it. Almost missed fhe plane until I found an email with the Air Canada number. Not good coordination. Air Canada and United need to do a better job of coordinating these reservations. And the 8 dollar snack was dreadful."
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and clearly well trained. The seats had plenty of leg room. For being an early flight I was able to take a nap on the plane comfortably."
Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."
Cons: "Play delayed 90 mins adding to my already delayed journey!!"
Cons: "No cash food and beverage"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"

Pros: "It had a nice view."
Cons: "The restroom was very smelly."
Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Cons: "After my first flight was cancelled for no clear reason, I was rebooked on one which was 8 hours later (not the one of the first flights out). When I arrived to the airport my flight was then delayed another hour. This was two days after my previous flight with United which had us sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for updates about whether or not we could take off."
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "Because my first flight from detroit was an hour late i missed this flight and flew American which that flight was nice"
Cons: "Delay n missed my 2nd flight Then a 50 min flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew was always striving to make sure the flight was as comfortable as possible. They have me a couple perks for being in the military and that made my flight very enjoyable. I will definitely start flying with United more often"
Cons: "No bad comments on my behalph"
Pros: "friendly crew and good flight,,"
Cons: "why load the plane front to back,,Hassle getting by everyone,,A little common sense would go a long way,,,"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The flight was initially delayed due to late plane Once we boarded the flight was delayed yet again, without any explanation. Seats were very uncomfortable even in economy plus"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."
Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late, and then on top of that an hour delay happened. The courtesy drink I had, which was coffee, was bad. The WiFi I had in my seat wasn't working, and the crew seemed more somber than cheery. I did not at all enjoy my flight. Also, becuase the flight was that late, my ride couldn't pick me up so I had to fork out 50$ for cab fare."
Pros: "We finally arrived, thankful. But upset. The flight was good after we got going.."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and i missed my meeting on Dec.10, 2015.. We were suppose to go Washington to Portland, Maine.instead we went to New Newark..At lenght wait... And after all that waiting we are offered a drink of soda or juice. What gives? Nothing else?"
Pros: "Cjomfortable, on time flight."
Cons: "Non-fat salad dressing. You might have heard that the obesity epidemic got worse with the creation of non-fat products, but lots of sugar. What's your first ingredient? High fructose corn syrup. Guess you want oversize butts in your seats. Toilet seat should stand up by itself in business class. What are you thinking?"
Pros: "Excellent experience sleek look and roomy"
Pros: "Because of the delayed flight time (and near cancellation) we were given free access to on board DirecTV."
Cons: "I feel like I experience delays with United more than any other airline. Was delayed and almost cancelled due to maintenance issue. Not the first time this has happened to me--is it so hard to make sure your fleet is running well?"
