Pros: "I loved the entertainment options, especially that we could pull up the map & see where we were."
Cons: "Online information was confusing & made it sound like we had to pay for our carry on, so we didn't bring a carry on (just personal item). It needs to be more clear."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather where the arriving plane was coming from. Apparently no other planes or crew were available to fill in. Interestingly, my daughter in Minneapolis knew before we did that our flight was cancelled. Poor communication. My son who was traveling with me was able to get help from Fatima on the "white phone". She got us to Winnipeg on a midnight flight and we then booked a $1400 Delta flight to Minneapolis from there. We needed to be there by 10 am to attend the legal adoption ceremony of my daughter's infant son. It was very close but we made it. Sorry to say but flying is no longer a pleasurable, exciting experience. Janet Davis"
Pros: "lay-flat bed for red-eye flight to Toronto"
Cons: "Both my flights were cancelled and I had to fly out on a later flight . Thus greatly inconvenienced myself as both times it meant I did not reach my destination until the middle of the night. I hope I never have to use Air Canada again because I always have something negative happen when I fly with them!"

Cons: "Rude staff, delays both to and from Toronto on my flight and numerous others."
Pros: "The crew were polite and friendly."
Cons: "It was a 3-hour flight, so there was no entertainment."

Pros: "It was a fast flight."
Cons: "Leg room."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "I was stuck in immigration for about an hour. The screening process at this airport is so laborious. You have to wait on a bench until they call your name and they don't care if your flight is about to be boarding. I understand that immigration is necessary but they could at least have people form a queue instead of having us wait for our names to be called. I told them that my flight would be boarding in 25 minutes and they told me "Oh, don't worry, they'll just put you on the next flight". But when I got to my airline to check in, they charged me $150. I needed that $150 to pay some bills when I got back home."

Pros: "air canada quickly changed me to another flight when mine was delayed but I had to ask for that, they did not offer."

LONG walk....................."
Pros: "Return flight -staff were friendly, more spaceous"
Cons: "Arrive flight to Punta cana -staff could be more corteous and friendly"
Cons: "Small plane. Poor service. rough landing"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very polite. One of them spilled one of the dinners right next to me and hardly cleaned it up. I waited for her to come back to clean it but a few hours later, I just cleaned it myself (even though she spilled all of it)."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Pros: "The crew was doing the best they could and was professional."
Cons: "Where to start, I have taken Air Canada 1 time before to Regina and you lost my luggage, luckily it was on the flight home. This time check in was very disorganized and unprofessional (I got scolded when my luggage bumped the post that forms the line that was set up after half the passengers were there making the last to show up first in line.) The flight was delayed and hour for a broken air mask upon departure . The monitor screens were hard to see and harder to hear. Upon arrival we sat for 30 minutes because they couldn't shut the engines down. Customs was a breeze but the walk from terminal to customize to the next terminal had me winded, luckily my connecting Air Canada flight was late also . And this was the better part of my experience. My flight to Athens was miserable ( lots of screaming children spread out through the plane). And when I thought it was over my luggage was separated and lost for 3 days. I should send you the underwear as a reminder of my experience"
Pros: "Great airline. Highly recommend them"
Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Pros: "Roomy preferred seats"
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "Was put on plane to France, 5 hour layover. Still waiting for my luggage to arrive. Frustrating in extreme."
Pros: "I liked that access to movies was provided without needing to download an app prior to departure."
Cons: "The drink and snack crew offered extra pretzels to the row in front of me and skipped my row completely. Had to ask them when they were already nearing the end of the plane for this since flagging them down didn't work."
Cons: "My biggest complaint regarding air Canada is the poor service and indifference typically exhibited by their service staff."
Cons: "Once again over an hour late due to maintenance issues. Air Canada uses a subcontractor airline for their Cincinnati flights that has a horrible track record. AVOID!"
Cons: "The fact there was no entertainment system available for a 6hr international flight is a crime. Apparently there is some sort of app you need to download on a mobile device or computer BEFORE the flight, Would have made a huge difference knowing that."
Pros: "The staff offered a hotel and voucher for for 24hr delay but I was still unable to make up for lost travel time."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight to Dublin because the plane was delayed nearly three hours. I received a new ticket for 24hours after my oringial connecting flight. When I arrived in Dublin my baggage had been placed on the wrong flight."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous to us. Very little turbulence on trip. Flying is very easy today more than Even 5 years ago. I will fly again on Air Canada"
Cons: "Small basic meals"
Cons: "Flight was great. Kayak was a nightmare to work with."
Pros: "Decent flight"
Cons: "Delays are part of travel, but they're ridiculous and I am unhappy with the delay leaving Minneapolis. It caused all sorts of problems down the line because it caused me to miss my connection, take different flights, and come into Munich much later than I had expected. Also, you Canadians don't have Sudoku in your magazines. Why?"
Pros: "that the crew was friendly"
Cons: "food was awful"
Pros: "Schedule ok"
Cons: "Pitch was miserable Attendant said bit was a low cost carrier so no tv in seat We are over 6 feet so never again"

Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "As always, seats are very tight and not super comfortable... but that’s true for all airlines these days, unfortunately."
Cons: "The usual-- lack of legroom, insufficient recline"
Pros: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Cons: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Though take off was delayed."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "Great to always feel comfortable while traveling."
Cons: "The legroom is non-existent. I sure wish airlines didn't try to put so many seats in each aircraft."
Pros: "Service and respect very good"
Pros: "Not much. The plane left ontimefrom SF,got toMplsontime."
Cons: "Bought a basic economy ticket: 3 emails warning about luggage restrictions - demeaning! Can't download boarding passes from own computer- must be done at airport under supervision of United staff: "have to check and see what bags you're bringing"!. Last to board! Seat assignments done at the gate; instructed to see gate attendant, who says, "Take a seat, we'll call you". Finally, in SF, gate person says,"You bought a restricted ticket, we have to watch you"! I didn't buy lousy customer service!"
Pros: "On time, friendly, overall great!"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crews."
Cons: "The landing was a little bumpy."
Pros: "The price of a ticket is slightly lower. It is not enough of a difference to make the plethora of inconveniences worth it. You are not a valued customer with this fare. If United values customers, they shouldn't offer this fare. That's why I don't fly the bargain airlines."
Cons: "You can't check in at the kiosk on basic economy without an employee badge swipe, and there were no employees available. I had to stop checking in, wait in line, and then the employee that I talked to didn't have the right kind of badge to swipe. So I waited again. Extremely inconvenient. Even after being forced to talk to a ticket agent at check in, they still won't issue a seat. So you have to go to the gate and wait in line again to get a seat. The system is built for maximum inefficiency. It doesn't cost less for them to make me talk to two separate people, it is only to inconvenience the flyer for buying a cheaper ticket. It seems like a punitive system. Boarding was organized and painless. The crew seemed polite. Regarding comfort, the "leg room" on the airbus is ridiculous. I am average height and felt claustrophobic. I can't imagine how a tall person feels. There was no " entertainment" on my flight, so one star for that. I didn't not receive any food and was not offered water, 1 star."
Pros: "I liked the savory snack mix."
Pros: "Private screening and movies available."
Cons: "No drink was offered due to descent sooner than planned. Very rough turbulance during descent."
Pros: "service is good."
Pros: "Very nice large roomy airplane"
Pros: "On time, no delays."
Cons: "Delays on delays"
Pros: "Being on time"
Pros: "It was as if everyone was a veteran flyer. No complainin, and everyone was courteous to one another."
Cons: "Stuck in the middle seat and to the very back of the plane."
Pros: "Room for my luggage"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "I have taken this fight many times. This was the first time there was not a drink Service available. Approximately 10 people had to get off the plane so five people to check their bag"
Pros: "Good service and on time"
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment before arriving to the airport."
Cons: "Would like atleast 1 or 2 options free on the tv"
Cons: "milk products in the snack bag, gross."
Cons: "Landing at dulles - we had to deplane from the outside. Would be nice to have it connected so we walk from plane to covered ramp inside to airport. Didn't serve a snack and they usually do."
Cons: "Cost too much."
Pros: "The flights were wonderful. Boarding process went smoothly."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have ever been on! Everything was right on time."
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Pros: "The lady helping me before boarding plan was awesome thanks enjoy your week"
Cons: "I'm 6'tall...NOT that tall and felt cramped the entire time."
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "Can't rate a flight that was cancelled 2 1/2 hours before it was to take off. They cancelled my flight, re-routed me to three flights going through la. I talked with a gate agent who got me an earlier flight to L.A bit the layover was huge. Was supposed to be in sac at 11am got here at 5"
Pros: "Speed and ease of our return home."
Cons: "We got in SO early, there was no gate ready for us at Newark, so we had to stay on board at least 30 min. Also they didnt allow even 1 person waiting in queue for bathroom, so if you sat down you'd lose your place."
Cons: "No movies to watch"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "first class seats not comfy. No wi-fi on the entire outbound. I had paid $149 to upgrade to first class. With no movies, no wi-fi, and being a vegetarian with 2 chicken entrees (chicken sandwich or chicken salad!) and no extra room, I decided to drink. I had 3 "free drinks" in first class, which was like paying $50 for a vodka tonic without a lime (3 times). Save you $$$"
Pros: "First leg had free streaming on your own device, which was awesome!"
Pros: "Love junction airport"
Cons: "DIA is always nice and kayak was a great service and price."
