Alaskan airlines is the best!
We , of course, had no entertainment. Good trip.
One of the hardest landings I’ve been a part of. Also seats are terribly uncomfortable and we sat on the taxiway for 30 extra minutes because there were no gates available.
Cons: "There was no one at the front desks when we arrived for at least 30mins."
Pros: "Very upbeat, efficient, and helpful crew"
Cons: "Maybe contract with a different food company...?"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They were careless with our suitcases. When we got to Vancouver, we were missing wheels on our suitcases. 2 wheels on my husband's and 1 on mine. It made it horrible to pull the suitcases."
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: "In flight crew was super great!"
Cons: "The comfort of those Horizon turbo prop planes leave EXTREME room for improvement. I normally won't even fly on them, they are loud, uncomfortable, reek of burnt fuel, etc. but Alaska was not offering JetBlue service for some unknown reason during my needed travel dates."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing & super friendly. They have a 20 minute bag guarantee so you get your checked luggage super fast."
Cons: "On one my flights I had to sit in an isle seat & people kept bumping me while I was trying to sleep but that's really out of anybody's control so I can't fault the airline for it!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Friendly crew Hard cider Easy loading, organized Cart for carry on luggage"
Cons: "Small storage area on board at seat & for carry-ons Seats were crowded , small , close together Noisy sitting in row 4 or 5 near propellers/ engines"
Pros: "Fast boarding and flight. Food couldn’t really be rated as it was a couple cookies and a drink. Comfort was average for economy class seating. There was ample room to move your feet as long as there was room to stow your bags up top. On this flight there wasn’t much room. Too many people bring carry on baggage vice checking it in."
Cons: "Not enough room to stow carry on baggage."
Pros: "The captain was the only nice person on the crew."
Cons: "Flight attendants were extremely rude. Made a simple request for a second cup of water two times. Both times I was meet with an ugly looks d a “we’ll see, you have to wait!” Water never came and neither did the flight attendants. They were too busy talking to each other in the back of the plane. Worst flight attendants ever!! Glad I fly Delta twice a month!"

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: "Cheap air fares"

Pros: "trip overall very good"
Cons: "It didn't have on board wi-fi"
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: "Loved flight w tv and access to movies at your seat"
Pros: "We got a flat tire on the way to the airport. Left the car on the side of the road, hopped on a quick uber ride to the Bozeman airport and we made it with literally one minute to spare. we wouldn't have if the girl helping us hadn't been so determined to get us on our flight."
Cons: "It was all great. No complaints."
Pros: "The flight and crew were great. I loved the quick boarding."
Cons: "However, the other passengers were not considering others. There were several different families that let their kids run and scream up the walkway. Some passengers did not use headphones and conflicted with all the other sounds and made hearing the annoucements very difficult."
Pros: "I liked the crew on my flights."
Cons: "My Connecting flight SEA to PDX. "CANCELLED!""
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..!"

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: "On time..."
Cons: "No service, no snacks!"
Cons: "The landing was extremely rough."
Cons: "seats were very tight"
Pros: "We were on and off the plane quickly. Luggable arrived very promptly. Nice choice for beer and wine which is complimentary."
Cons: "Very efficient and friendly."
Pros: "On-time, no unpleasant surprises."
Pros: "One stewardess was very nice."
Cons: "My flight was late and I was not notified through any media, not Kayak not Alaska Airlines. I arrived early to the airport, asked the luggage check in and was told it was 30 minutes behind. Then burn up a little time, go through security only to find that it was 50 minutes late. None of the signage was updated at the terminal to say how late, it still said on time until I got on the plane. My flight was stressful due to being sat next to someone with no sense of personal space and in the two other seats next to me was a fussy baby with his father. Got to Portland, and had to run to the other half if the airport. I decided to postpone my flight until later due to that stress."
Cons: "Had to spend the night in Bozeman because the pilot had too many hours so plane was late missed flight from Seattle to Walla Walla. Horizon terminal crew was clueless. Hope to never have to fly on Horizon if trying to get somewhere on time."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Turbulance Small seats"
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: "Timeliness, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Overhead bins just a little too small, waited a long time to board due to late crew, I believe. That is understandable, but would have appreciated a bit more communication at the gate"
Pros: "Flights not cancelled"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats at all"
Cons: "They kept canceling flights even though other flights were going out of Seattle and landing in Bozeman. But the gate agents were promising that the next flight wasn't gong to be cancelled and that I was going to have a seat, so I didn't book another flight from Seattle to Bozeman on a different carrier. So I spend 3 full days waiting at the boarding gate with the gate agent saying boarding would begin in 30 minutes the whole time. Finally they just sent me back home to Oakland. I missed my last chance to see my grandfather alive. He just passed away. To add insult to injury, they they wouldn't refund the ticket because I "used" the ticket for a lovely vacation to the Seattle airport for 3 days."
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."
Cons: "I was switch to an other air line .then it took them so long .that the plane left 've for they could find me on the list,so I was not able to leave. So then then booked me in the Alaska air line for the next day and gave e me a best western hotel to stay at, but I waited an hour and twenty minutes and know one came to take me to the motel. So I finally was shelled back to the gate , cause I was not able to stay there any longer cause I wouldn't ha e have had much time to be in the m politely be for having to Came back to the airport port. . Should have been in Las Vegas Wednesday night did get there till the next day . I spent a very UN comfortable night at the airport."

Cons: "Need display screens for entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Plane smelled like urine"
Cons: "Extremely frustrated. Upon booking my ticket, I was told it wouldn’t be a full flight. At no point did u receive any information alerting me that it was going to be a full flight. I was extremely uncomfortable due to COVID."
Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"

Cons: "The inoperative TV screens should be repaired."
Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"
Pros: "Everything except the delay was fine, not extraordinary."
Cons: "7-hour flight delay. If this was a European flight we would have been entitled to at least $250 for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything to compensate us for a 7hour delay, which was ridiculous."
Pros: "The plane arrived in Atlanta ahead of time and thus we were able to start boarding earlier than usual. The gate agent kept the process in order and moved the boarding process along nicely. The pilots also got us to Baton Rouge 28 minutes ahead of schedule which was appreciated. Nice flight."
Cons: "Same issue with getting passengers seated once on the aircraft and then getting their luggage stowed takes too much time."
Cons: "13 hour delay"
Cons: "Great flight. We were delayed but the crew kept us well informed and tried to make up time in the air"

Cons: "Since this was such a short flight, there wasn’t much to improve."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Pros: "Never made the connecting flight."
Pros: "Movies and snacks on board. Friendly staff"
Cons: "They should provide free headphones"

Cons: "WiFi in all flights"
Cons: "Departure delayed by 1hr30"
Pros: "The seats felt roomier in this smaller plan than the bigger ones and one of the flight attendants was lovely!"
Cons: "It was so dirty! The flight attendant who spoke over the PA mumbled and was not clear at all in anything she said. Maybe she was tired and had a long day but she definitely didn’t seem to want to be there. I didn’t know that you got a receipt with your seat number on it because it wasn’t explained and that was my first time flying Delta in years. Overall one of the worst flights but thankfully it was fast!"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi cut out a bit"
Pros: "Every aspect of this trip with Delta was super! We were on time, a bit early even. The flight was smooth and comfortable."
Cons: "I would prefer fresh fruit or vegetables as a snack."

Pros: "The seat was comfy foe the whole 20 min flight"
Cons: "You delayed my flight . Missed my connection and got.stuck at the airport for 6 hours . Now I have to miss work tomorrow"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket and did not inform me. Horrible exlefywith JustFly.com Beware of this organization"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Pros: "Entertainment did not work even though it was a quick flight we sat at the gate for a while which turned the flight into hour and a half."
Pros: "I was rerouted."
Cons: "No one would reissue me a ticket for the next flight. Delta and West Jet kept saying the other company should do this, and in the end no one did and I had to purchase another ticket."
Pros: "Great to have in flight TV"
Pros: "The flight attendant in Delta Comfort/Main Cabin was very nice and made for an excellent trip. Smooth ride and on time. I like that!"
Pros: "No complaints. A puddle-hopper to a yes."
Pros: "All that one would want."
Pros: "The stewardess was extremely polite, though the pilot was less chatty (probably due to lack of turbulence during the flight). Decided to risk drinking the coffee again, and was pleasantly surprised that it actually tasted good."
Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"
Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."

Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."

Pros: "All computers down. Cancelled flight. Spent night in airport. No accommodations. No food or drink."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Unsmiling, miserable staff. Seats like concrete. Cheap and nasty snacks"
I spent more money to like where I was sitting. I’m so disgruntled at all of the airlines and their “efficient” cramming and packing in as many passengers as possible. I’m continuously panicked now due to claustrophobic feelings in planes. Trying to go to the bathroom and literally touching the walls as I try to move about is so disgusting. Bumping every single elbow and shoulder as I was down an aisle is so awful too. And I’m not a large person. Anyway. Clearly my complaint will change nothing so I’m not sure why I’m even writing this.
Boarded late. Missed first landing attempt, landed almost an hour late and missed connecting flight.
Pros: "Fast, easy, got decent seats and didn’t have to sit next to anyone"
Pros: "The pilot was informative."
Cons: "Cabin attendant was seemed to be just going through the motions and showed no care or concern for passengers."
Pros: "Boarding in Bozeman was good."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear the pilot at all, which was disconcerting through a pretty turbulent flight. Unclear about beverage service; some people seemed to get drinks but no one ever asked if we wanted anything. Finally the app did not work consistently for in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."
Cons: "The amount of space! I’m only 5’7”, 125lbs and I was absolutely squished in this seat. Oh and we waited an hour in the tarmac for a maintenance guy to fix a computer? Why can’t they figure this out before we board? It’s better to sit at the gate than in your cramped airplanes."
Pros: "Flight attends are very friendly."
Pros: "Seats were tiny."
Cons: "Had a decent flight until a rude baggage handler brining up bags to passengers in the jetway surprised me. Had a good flight until the attitude got in my face."
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."
Pros: "Flight attendant Louis was great. He was very nice and friendly. Calmed me down when I was nervous about turbulent. Great staff overall!"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Airplane didn't have any AC and was very old and dirty."
Cons: "Entertainment—screen was not visible from seat and sound did not work for first hour of flight"
Cons: "We stay stuck in PVR"
Cons: "Better entertainment"
Cons: "The gate agents called all boarding groups with the boarding queue extending the entire length of the jet bridge and into the terminal beyond the gate area, making us stand in line ten to fifteen minutes longer for no reason."
Pros: "There was one friendly crew member from PVR to ORD. The rest seemed like they did t want to be there and certainly not serve us food or drinks. The attendant from ORD to AZO was great!"
Cons: "Two hour delay to depart and an hour to wait on the tarmac for a disabled vehicle to leave the gate. Several people missed their flights."
Cons: "you didn't respond and we were unable to take the flight."
Cons: "I haven’t had such a terrible experience with another airline before. Missing out on dinner reservations. Wasting 12+ hours in airports. Spending more money at the food court than ever desired."
Pros: "Easy boarding, flight on time, friendly creew"
Cons: "old plane with seat not confortable for a 3h flight"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Zero accommodations"
Cons: "i wasnt able to select a seat when I checked in. they couldn't give me a better seat before bording and the fact that Im the one approaching then to have a seat selection, no one called my name."
Pros: "Food was so so on board BA flight"
Cons: "Personel of BA in general very arrogant and think they rule"
Pros: "Good service in-flight. Pretty comfortable seats and decent in-flight food/beverage options."
Cons: "Crew was slamming overhead compartments before take-off and would ignore questions from passengers. Late take-off, very late gate change and late arrival. No help from crew on the plan to get bags taken care of so boarding took forever."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Avianca. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful!! We will definitely fly Avianca again to Colombia!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew were great."
Pros: "overall service was good as expected."
Cons: "overalll service was as expected."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Pilots flew great. We arrived a few mins early as well."
Cons: "On the way to Denver from Miami we were on a nice new AA plane with TV entertainment, movies, power, and comfortable seats. On the way from Denver to Miami we were on an old plane with no entertainment and old uncomfortable seats. If this is going to be the case, charge me less up front as well. My daughter had a terrible time for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly- organized everything well as far as getting everyone seated quickly and handing out refreshments"
Cons: "Very little leg room for anyone over five feet six inches! Happy to be 5’2” for a change!"
Pros: "We got upgraded...Happy New Year to us!!! Service was excellent...landing was one of the smoothest we have ever had! Nice quiet flight with not too many people on board! I will use American Airlines again!"
Pros: "I always trave AA/British Airways and I have never experienced any major problem or delay. They are a really good and trustworthy airline!"
Pros: "nice people taking care of us during the flight"
Cons: "in Miami, had to change gate 2 times, from D38 to E9,than to D7."
Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."
Cons: "It was advertised that one can see entertainment through WIFi, but from my iPad, i can't connect to this WiFi. I tried several times until I just gave up."
Cons: "I never got on my scheduled flight. The flight I did get on, 4 hours later, was fine. But caused major delays to my train departure from NYC to Philadelphia"
Pros: "Quick short flight efficient, got from A to B for the same comfort for the price I paid so I’m happy"
Pros: "Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken."
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "tiny plane with uncomfortable, old seats. no entertainment options on a 3 hour flight. No food options for purchase."
Cons: "No entertainment. No food. The flight was 2:25 minutes but American Airlines managed to make it take three and a half hours. The tone of staff was closer to prison guards than airline hostesses."
Cons: "The boarding was unorganized, the person calling for boarders had a heavy accent and hard to understand, many of us missed our group call. Boarders were positioned every where and it was hard breaking thru the crowd to get to the boarding area. A real cattle call. Inside, the plane is very confined environment. The wine was a nice touch but I don't drink. The food served was not the greatest."
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Pros: "I liked how the flight was on time and how the flight was not overbooked. Over the past year I have had ad experiences with flying so much so that I thought the airlines did not value its patrons schedules and plans; it was all about getting our money. But American Airlines has restored my faith in the Airlines. Thanks!!!"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Got there"
Cons: "Way too expensive"

Pros: "The crew was average"
Cons: "It was an average flight ... nothing to complain about !"
Pros: "Good Flight"
Cons: "I was satisfied with all service"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "There is completely no free snacks, just drinks (excluding alcohol). The maintenance didn't sign some papers for the plane which cause the unnecessary delay."
Cons: "The flight was late leaving and most of the passengers needed to catch connecting flights, so there was some anxiety as the crew didn't have any information as to whether or not we'd be able to connect."
Pros: "Everyone was cordial"
Cons: "Entertainment system, especially the sound was poor"
Cons: "Mechanical Maintenance"
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "The seat space was good and the flight ended without incident."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which happens, but there was no communication as to why or how long it would be or any other information. In flight the crew were barely visible as I had to ask for refreshments and then they brought it around for everyone. Next was cleanup which took way longer before it showed up."
Cons: "The plane are old. The over head bends are smaller than any plane built recently. The enteratianment system has issues and the headphone noise comes out blurred (I overheard other people having the same problem), the staff is rude, the food was awful, and I was late arriving on both flights (we never left on time)."
Pros: "Flights were very good. I was concerned about the buy food on board option but it worked well. The food was good and it cost less than buying in the airport and bringing on board. Using the charge card to pay wend smoothly and seemed not to slow the process at all. Good job Air Canada."
Pros: "Beautiful new 787"
Cons: "Entertainment options could be more plentiful."
Cons: "poor entertainment choices. Reading lights didn't work. I traveled with my wife, we were unable to read because reading lights didn't work."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Air Canada changed this flight to a red eye. And didn't let us know until months later by then we had booked our accommodation they don't allow refunds so we had to go regardless. But let me tell you we would have cancelled if possible"
Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. We were delayed and rerouted to Toronto but not given enough information. We spent an average for an hour waiting for take off each time."
Cons: "serious delays and the staff were not very friendly. Weren't willing to go above and beyond for travellers that had been sitting in airports all day! Probably one of the poorest crews i have encountered on Air Canada."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "Organised zones for boarding"
Cons: "i am à French National ( France) living in UK. After a confusing conversation from the officer not understanding that I was not travelling to France ( assumption) I was asked to show evidence I had the right to enter UK !!!! I explained I lived there permanently ; I was then asked why French hate English so much!!! To which I explained only narrow minded people would believe so and that the style of her comment were not appropriate . I explained my children were half French half British and that her comment was offensive ."
Pros: "The staff were great!! So friendly and helpful although it was an hour wait to get to customer service she was very helpful in getting me on a flight hours earlier than the one I was booked on. She was very empathetic to the fact I was supposed to be in Calgary at 10:30am and the flight I was booked on wasn't going to get me there until 11:30pm"
Cons: "All day I had been reset for flights I were going to miss. When I fianally made it to Toronto and I get put on the 3rd flight to leave for Calgary...thankfully for the last noted above. In the end I missed my ride from the airport and had to rent a car. It made for a very long day!! Although the staff were friendly I just felt shuffled all day"
Pros: "Very nice and attentive on board crew Acceptable space and seat comfort in regular economy New and well working entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding process was poorly organized, crew started the passport checks too late and caused delays on the boarding since people were still stuck in the passport lineups when their zone was boarding. All my documents were re-checked despite a "doc ok" stamp from the first go."
Pros: "Since it was very hard to sleep in the airport due to issues caused by air canada, I slept almost the entire flight."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Only one hour."
Cons: "Snack options could have been better, only a biscuit."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Pros: "I flew roundtrip to Japan on Air Canada business class. Buying a ticket late, I noticed it was only $500 or so more for business class. We did have to touchdown in Canada coming and going, but short and efficient hops. On the way back, it probably saved time because we were cleared in Canada so arriving back in Philly was like a domestic flight. Great Food and service. The trip to Japan on their new Dreamliner business class featured an amazingly designed pod - super comfortable, lay flat for sleeping, But has good layout and table space if I had wanted to work on laptop. Thumbs up!"
Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "The landing of the aircraft was second to none when we landed in Calgary."
Cons: "The seats we were sitting in were uncomfortable. There seemed to be a ridge near the back of the seat cushion and it was very uncomfortable for the entire trip."
Pros: "I approached Air Canada and changed my flight to fly directly from Vancouver to Saskatoon and eliminate several hours of waiting in the airport and another stop."
Cons: "I had to pay a change fee."
Pros: "Service and pricing presented a good value to cost ratio"
Cons: "The sound quality of the onboard entertainment is shameful espwcially for thisi day and age. The image quality wasn't great either."
Pros: "No problems, clean, friendly staff, comfortable chairs with the head rest that folds up towards your ears."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Cons: "The screen was not responding well"
Pros: "Nice staff. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "No basic food for free."
Pros: "Everything was as scheduled"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Eventually they got us there."
Cons: "They cancelled the sat flite. Little communication . Left us after 6 hours and 11 pm to fend for our selves with no luggage. No compensation. It was awful."
Cons: "Engine noise unbearably loud French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Pros: "Safe landing. Rescheduled and was only 1.5h behind"
Cons: "Our 6:30am flight was cancelled without any notice, no phone call, no email to tell us. Took over an hour to get through on the phone to see if we could reschedule to the next available flight"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Pros: "On time, excellent flight."
Cons: "There was only a very limited choice of movies to select from."
Cons: "It was late arriving in from TO. We had to pre board due to a handicapped companion and there was no time to settle with all the rest of the passengers shoving to get on due to the lateness. The majority of the flight was through turbulence. No one helped with placing bags for the handicapped in the overhead. They did not call for the wheelchair at arrival nor was there an attendant att arrival to push the chair up the ramp."
Pros: "Food has to be paid for on board- and the quality is not that great. Friendly staff willing to please"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost an hour from Calgary to Toronto (technical - computer issue). On the return flight from Toronto, the flight was also delayed (seat issue)."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "The boarding ran smoothly and the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "On this flight you had to have an iPad or iPhone to enjoy the entertainment, and I had neither."
Cons: "They boarded us in spite of the fact that the flight had been delayed 40 minutes. We were all getting alerts on our phones but were told to disregard it and board anyway. We then had to sit on the runway for 40+ minutes until we could take off. Since we were traveling with two small children, it would have been preferable to spend those extra 40 minutes in the terminal rather than on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating, wishing more crews were as great and friendly."
Cons: "Non business class passengers were constantly using the business class bathroom, curtains were not drawn."
Pros: "Pleasant, uneventful flights."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Departing closer to scheduled time - lack of flight attendants causing a three hour delay is not great at all."
Cons: "UNcomfortable seats. They don’t recline."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very sweet and helpful."
Cons: "Every.single.time I take this flight we sit and wait for upwards of 30 minutes for someone to be available to park/unload the plane. The wait is so consistent it’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Great service, quick and easy!"
Pros: "Bulkhead window seat, very pleasant and informative pilot"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on this flight"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."

Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like"

Pros: "Checking in was simple with no problems. They made the process easy. Very courteous!"
Pros: "No entertainment and have to pay extra for any eats."
Pros: "On time, very pleasant crew"
Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The bar is pretty low with United. Even being a 1K member, I am usually just hoping the flight arrives on time. This time it didn't. The crew was polite, which isn't always the case."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily UA's fault but they don't make it easy on their customers. Their mileage program has so many elite members, especially in SF that even 1K doesn't give you a strong shot at getting upgraded."
Cons: "Customer service is very inneficient"
Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."
Pros: "Offered drinks and snacks."
Cons: "My suitcase's handle was damaged by the time it reached baggage claim. I will need to buy a new suitcase now."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because plane hadn't arrived at the gate yet from its previous flight."
Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."
Pros: "again we flew business class"
Cons: "A waste of money for business class as it was no better than business class 30 years ago. Slightly wider seats with a little more room, but there was no entertainment and the food was awful"
Pros: "Was a breeze to board"
Cons: "No entertainment at all no music nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very good, very attentive."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but was very unorganized."
Pros: "Didn't have food so couldnt rate that section"
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate on the plane while they work on a problem"
Pros: "Good solid trip. No issues and went smooth. Your team Was good both ways."
Pros: "I like being able to use the United App,"
Cons: "I don't like having to pay for all entertainment in the headrest tvs. The app is much more convenient."
Pros: "Freeway traffic made me just miss the checkin time by a hair. I had an important meeting and was hoping there was a chance to still get on (40min before flight) but that wasn't possible."
Pros: "Warm friendly competent staff."
Cons: "Didn't make it because United gave standby seating to guests terminating travel in SFO."
Cons: "IT system outtage, grounded all domestic flights"
Cons: "Hard to sleep, turbulence"
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"
Pros: "Food should be fee for the entire flight. It's a long flight over 4 hours."
Cons: "The seats had no infotainment system No food Cramped"
Pros: "Informative Captain. Made up time in transit."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not exist and a fee was charged to access content online. This does not meet industry standards. During boarding, airline agent told me my one allowable carry-on item had to be checked because of limited space in overhead bins. Upon boarding the plane, there was clearly room for more luggage to be stored overhead. One flight crew member served complimentary beverages by serving the entire can. The other served by pouring only some of the can into a cup. Again, this does not meet industry standards, from the perspective of a reasonably well-traveled flier."
Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Unfortantely their was a mechanical problem that delayed the flight. I understand that failures occur, but only having one mechanic available to work this problem is not good. What happend to the two person concept when working on critical aircraft systems? Pretty hard landing at Chicago."
Pros: "New seats (more room & comfort) & movies"
Cons: "Its a joke paying money to watch broadcast T.V."
Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays. That was after not noticing issues with the plane until after waiting for late passengers and taxiing out. We arrived 4hrs late for a 3hr flight. They also only had one agent to rebook flights and assign hotels at the end even though they had hours to know the connections would be missed."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg room. A bare bones airline."
