Cons: "Flight got delayed by more than an hour, so my layover was cut short and had to rush to catch my next flight"
Pros: "Finally an upgraded plane. The plane from Frankfurt to Mumbai was not the best. On business class - small washroom with the toilet lid collapsing on you. One of the washrooms also not functional. Liked the food and the service."
Cons: "Sink not functioning properly in business class."
Pros: "I like crew members service"
Cons: "Didn’t like seat was not comfortable plus some time smells bad in flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice about everything. On being asked at the airport to at least change my seat on the second leg flight the personnel did it without a fuss."
Cons: "Tthe first leg was overbooked and they wouldn't let me select a seat and I had to weather through a middle seat that I was not at all comfortable with The entertainment collection can be better specially Indian/Hindi movies"
Pros: "cleanliness, timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "poor service - surly crew bad food - havent been served worst food uncomfortable seats bad entertainment, sound distortions, small screens, limited selections and to top it all is the FRANKFURT AIRPORT - one of the worst transit points which makes you walk for miles and miles."
Pros: "The special meals ordered were good. the staff was courteous. Bags arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats towards the rear of plane were too narrow. When the front passenger reclined their seats they were in your face. This is bad design. Also, at Frankfurt we had to wait over an hour for the plane to get de-iced. Why was this process not started early, as the departure time was known."
Cons: "Had requested vegetarian and was served vegan instead"
Pros: "Only best part of Lufthansa is newer planes. Smooth rides. However, I don't think they can count on their customers base only on one positive for long run."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Cons: "-flight delays-no information provided-no information on gate changes-"
Cons: "Lufthansa Ground staff was not equipped to handle flight cancellation! It took them 4.5 hrs after scheduled flight departure time between which they told us flight was cancelled and provided Hotel Accommodations. Very sad customer handling and service. Subsequent booking was a mess too!"

Cons: "The very long commute from one terminal to another terminal."
Pros: "service was excellent, food was good, flight crew very pleasant."
Pros: "The aircraft for one - their new 747-8l. Spacious and quiet. Loved the ambience. The food was absolutely fantastic Indian food. Service professional and courteous. I would plonk money to travel LH business class for sure."
Pros: "in-flight service was fine"
Cons: "Very poor ground staff at the check-in counter. Made me pay 2nd bag fee of $100 at the time of check-in, despite the airline rules allowing 2 free checked bags. The staff including the supervisor were so un-cooperative and rude. The supervisor snapped at me by saying that I was not doing the airline any favor by flying Lufthansa. At that point I just gave up and paid the totally unjust fee. Took me to a back room to pay the fees, where the credit card machine and even the printer wasn't working. ...... very bad experience EVER !!!"
Pros: "No ventilation on some terminals toilet economy class."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Start the flight either during the day or evening and not at 3:00 am in the morning. It disrupts the whole night sleeping schedule. I know Indians will take anything but Lufthansa can make a good start on these timings."
Cons: "crew service was not good especially in flight from Mumbai to frankfurt. I was not served with midnight snack though i was awake."
Pros: "Good cabin crew, good food Easy to use entertainment system"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"
Pros: "Organized boarding, service, left on time"
Cons: "No gluten-free food when they served the food. They said that they didn't serve gluten-free food on short flights, but this was two and a half hours. Also, I had asked for a gluten-free meal when I booked my flight. Not good in today's world, when quite a few people have to eat gluten-free. (I am a medical doctor.)"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding is always a nightmare. First class, and the high flyers are called first. Then premium economy, then economy. A mad rush of people scramble down 2 flights of stairs, then are crammed on a tandem bus that drives out to the plane. You then cross the Tarmac in all types of weather to board. This flight boarded from front and back. Making finding your seat a nightmare as people were traveling in both directions in the aisles. You would think you were in a third world country."
Pros: "Clean plane. Good boarding service."
Cons: "Food taste. Ok entertainment."
Pros: "Overall good flt crew.....and service. Good food & selection. Clean airy plane"
Cons: "It was too cold on the plane."
Pros: "I like the Tampa airport MUCH better than Miami or Orlando that are chaotic and offer less assistance to the traveler. I hope you continue to offer flights to and from Tampa from Frankfurt."
Cons: "I would like for long flights if the staff would remind and encourage all travelers that there is time for rest and quiet. Some people are loud by nature or because they come from a certain area and talk all 9 hours of flight, very annoying, disturbing the flight of others with unnecessary continuous conversation."
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "Service/ flight/ comfort/ food"
Cons: "I actually lost money because of the misinformation -- was told there was a modification on my flight details and that I had to call the Lufthansa office. I called in and was never told that anything was wrong. I kept trying to check in online and got blocked at every trial... Cut a long story short, I showed up for my Lufthansa flight to only be told I didn't have the required visa for one of my layovers... I missed my flight, got no refund for it and got zero help in finding a solution to my problem. You could do better than that, Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed. Though staff present at the gate, no announcements were made, not communicated to the passengers. All of sudden a big line to board the flight. Entertainment - when compared with other airlines, very few movies available."
Pros: "loved the service, crew, comfortable seating and food. Loved the idea of direct flight to Tampa."
Cons: "Frankfort ground crew service- confusion delays in boarding. Too far to walk from arr. gate to departure gate. Too many stairs to climb to reach the bus. again more stairs to climb making it a torture for seniors like us. No assistance unless booked as wheelchair assistance. We have travelled all over the world including developing countries and have seen better airports than Frankfort terminal that we used on multiple trips. we really need to reevaluate if we want to take Luftansa again! Thank you"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight . It was very smooth. Got food on time and water was served all the time"

Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Crew members seemed drunk and kept stepping on my foot that wasn't in the aisle and pumping into me, boarding was 2 hours late with no communication, food service was poor, hard to get water and disboarding was unorganized. I've taken many bad flights and this was by far the worst and most of is was the terrible attitudes and behaviors of the crew."
Pros: "Nothing specific"

Pros: "We could reschedule it. But only a week later."

Pros: "The flight from SFO to London was excelent. Espessialy crew members who Were very caring and helpfull and really nice. The food was very good, as well as entertainment choices. The flight from London to Madrid was ok. The flight was delayed but the captain kept us updated. We were comfortable waiting on the plane. The were no food (only for purchase) nor entertaiment on board, not actually needed since its a short flight. The crew presense was almost non-existent. They were staying or sitting there but, for example, didnt try to help family with crying little son. Im sure that crew ladies from sfo/madrid flight would do. Overall very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Lucked out with a pretty empty flight. Food was actually good and there was ice cream which was quite a nice perk."
Pros: "Everything was okay, except....."
Cons: "I was not happy with the ground staff in Mumbai, for not sending my baggage directly to Toronto, which was my last stop. I had to go through the whole process of checking in again in Montreal, where I could have missed my connecting flight to Toronto. I think your BA staff in Mumbai should be trained better, thanks."
Pros: "Economy plus was great. Economy was a little rough for me as seating was much less comfortable"
Pros: "polite crew"

Cons: "Old aircraft, mediocre entertainment display, food was sub par compared to previous flights"
Pros: "The room on plane to Heathrow, wouldn’t know about way back considering I had to rebook onto Air India..."
Cons: "Just the fact that BA decided to hold us in UK for 6 hours to get their full pay and the fact that Heathrow ground crew had not enough de icing equipment and resources were at an all time poor response. Three hour lines for checking on status of bags, status of flights, unable to book a hotel through BA and got nothing from them. I didn’t enjoy freezing and staying there in Heathrow freezing... plus I didn’t fly this flight home due to fears of them not being able to handle a coating of snow versus what loads of snow we recieve in the states. I had to take Air India home to the US AND HATED IT... thank you BA and especially Heathrow Number one for lack of response and total irresponsibility..."
Pros: "British Airways is what flying used to be. They are on time, polite, have great service, food and entertainment. The blankets, pillows and headphones are finished free of charge as are the meals that I thought were good. The personal entertainment systems include something for everyone. I highly recommend British Airways."

Pros: "crew very accommodating."
Cons: "Bad food, very small space in seats."
Cons: "Boarding was late no communication as to why Limited to no choice for entertainment"
Pros: "Was able to get a bulkhead seat. Wheelchair staff were very efficient at LHR and TPA. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."

Cons: "Little leg space"
Cons: "My daughter spent several hours in the checking in process. It was vary confusing and frustrating."
Pros: "Larger seats, TV Monitors, headphones and pillow immediately available, meals and snacks and in-between water and tea services, Crew was outstanding.

Pros: "Punctual, relaxing."
Cons: "No free refreshment, not even water."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "A few peoples televisions, including my own, just stopped working midway through the flight. The crew didn't offer us much to drink (like they didn't walk around offering water enough). Also paid extra for seating which we did not get the seats I paid for pretty sure."
Pros: "We did enjoy the movies and the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There was a massive delay and I stood in line 6 hours to rebook. Because of the long rebooking line, I missed multiple other potential alternative flights that day and had to spend an unscheduled night in the suburbs of Glasgow. Had rebooking been more efficient, I could have returned home the day scheduled. Very disappointed."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit unorganized for world class flyers"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Really liked the economy plus section and the little perks made a big difference."

Pros: "Staff was very professional and courteous. No much waiting time for check in. Separate area for security clearance for British Airways passengers was very helpful and noteworthy."

Pros: "Service onboard is always pleasant."
Cons: "Not a fan of British Airways business seats. It feels narrow, crowded (i counted 8 people per row?) and not private. You get much better seats on other airlines without having to pay first prices. Boarding was confusing for people that don't know that Club World means business. And food was bland."
Cons: "They had me change my seat so couple could sit together. Then gave my special gluten free meal to the man sitting in my former seat. They never checked and I had to inform crew that I never got my special food. They did get me something to eat finely. I was not very happy. Kathleen M Quinn"

Pros: "Left close to on time."
Cons: "Luggage wait in Tampa was much longer than usual."
Pros: "My flight was delayed on my way out, but the service was really great. The flight I made it onto was fairly empty and the flight attendants encouraged people who were sitting in a packed row to spread out. It was truly a great experience."
Cons: "The food was not very good. I wish I had gotten the vegetarian option with the sliced apples. Also, the smell on the plane was not very good. Need a light scented lavender air freshener that also kills germs. Or something with a very faint scent to clean the air."
Pros: "Food was good"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses treated everyone as the were sitting in the First Class section."
Cons: "The area near the top edge of wall in front of me needs cleaning."
Pros: "The original BA codeshare flight delayed by 19 hours, to the next day. They sent an email requesting not to come to the airport until the next day for the rescheduled time. After insisting on an alternative, we were put on Jet Airways flight at the last minute."
Cons: "Very poor systems, as they manually communicated with Jet, and would not waitlist on the Jet system even though Jet requested it. Despite putting us on Jet, they changed the connecting flight to the next day, connecting with the rescheduled BA flight! On reaching London, had to ask them to rebook on the original connecting flight, as we had taken alternate JET flight!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "The crew &entertainment"
Pros: "2 and 2 seats, all occupied, no distancing."

Cons: "Taking off on time. But they did get another plane. We arrived about 5 hours late."
Pros: "Extra seat width would always be nice"
Cons: "Kept on the tarmac with no information on when we would be leaving. I fell asleep and the flight attendant instead of waking me up rudely moved my chair upright in a startling and rude way.

Pros: "Pilots made up for delayed departure. Boarding quick and efficient"

Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher numbered rows."
Pros: "The crew and planes were excellent."
Cons: "When we booked our flights the web site did not show us all the possibilities for return flights. When inn Puerto Maldanado we checked on line and discovered we did not have to have the 18 hour and 19 hour lay overs. We rebooked and were hammered with the $400 charges. We will not book future flights with your organization because of this deceptive practice."
Cons: "3 hours stuck on the tarmac before giving up on repairs and switching aircraft"

Pros: "It was a very short flight so not too much to go wrong."
Cons: "I had a carry on and a laptop case that fit under the seat. The laptop case has wheels and a handle. The gate agent said I need to check one bag, even though I could show that the laptop case was within the specs for fitting under the seat. When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."
Pros: "Relatively uncorwdedcat that time so I got row to myself. Good amount of legroom"
Cons: "The crew was late because of an incoming flight they were rude to other passengers and seemed to have an attitude after a long day they made very few announcements but the flight went fast"
Cons: "Carry on limitations"
Pros: "The crew, and the plane, confy. Was a good flight in general."
Pros: "He gave me a meal voucher in Dallas which made me feel a little better about the four hour delay until the next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like the idea that I've had a four hour delay due to the fact that the airplane and DeRego showed up an hour late. There were no explanations and no apologies. I got to Dallas I was furious complain to customer relations. I at least wanted them to let me in to the admirals club so I could be comfortable for the next four hours. They refuse that but one lady at the customer relations apartment did give me a meal voucher which made me feel a little better."

Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"
Pros: "Somewhat disappointing on the snack options..."
Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything that I liked. Oh wait! You have diet Dr Pepper which I think is fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was kind of old and run down. Everyone, the passengers included which I realize you have no control over, just seemed to be in an awful mood and very unhelpful. Same, and about the gate attendants, in that we attempted to get seats together and he didn't care at all what was going on. I haven't flown American for a very long time, and I don't think I want to again for a very long time."
Cons: "Gate changes were confusing. Staff unprepared and upset with customers. I witnessed a gate agent yelling at customers and slamming phones down."
Pros: "Good assortment of movies"
Pros: "Quick and easy ride to Florida. Only 2 hour flight, smooth ride. Crew did their job and did it well."

Cons: "Crew was ten minutes late"
Pros: "how fast we boarded the plane."
Cons: "The crying babies"
Pros: "The flight was on timely"
Cons: "The staff was very informative"
Cons: "3 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was great and really helped calm my nerves about flying."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable."
Cons: "I didn't event get to make the flight because American Airlines was delaying the flight I was on from Jamaica to Miami, and American Airlines would not change the ticket I had to go from Miami to Tampa, so I was 12 hours late arriving in Miami. Terrible customer service from American Airlines in Jamaica"
Pros: "excellent services from employes"

Pros: "The crew did an excellent job avoiding a large storm en route."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at my destination in one piece and found my luggage."
Cons: "Flight delayed, yes I can understand a delay but not only was it delayed, but at the exact time we are originally scheduled to board they switched gates. Not just over one or even ten gates but fro gate D51 to gate D1. In the Miami Airport that is at least a 1 mile walk. At the time they switched gates there was no notification that the flight was also delayed by nearly or should I say over an hour. This causing people to scramble, run and drag children to make sure they weren't late for boarding then when everyone arrives to the new gate, they flight is delayed by 30! Minutes. That alone pisses people off but then after waiting that time, it's delayed again at least another 30 minutes. Just not well managed!!!"
Pros: "Seating space"
Cons: "Not much keg room for a medium size female."
Pros: "The AC flight between Vancouver —> Toronto seems much more organized than Toronto —> Vancouver. Flight departed on time and staff handled boarding more smoothly."
Cons: "Only one drink served on a 4.5 hour flight, I am so thirsty. AC has some of the smallest seats around also."
Cons: "Boarding not organize properly Letting passengers go from front to back not good"
Pros: "Cabin crew were terrific!"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay of our flight. And the entertainment systems seems to be getting old. What I mean is that it is by todays standard very very slow to switch between menus etc. And in some cases did not display all the menu content."
Cons: "Air Canada try their best to charge you for anything and everything! Including services that I just take for granted on other airlines (such as entertainment). Never booking AC again"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful, lucked out with exit aisle."
Cons: "Boarding took way too long. Typically an airline will ask people to voluntarily check their overhead luggage free of charge if they know it's a full flight, not on this flight. Instead, they tried to get everyone to board with luggage in hand, then once they realized there was not enough space they asked people to hold on to their luggage while they came through the plane to tag it and stow it below - very inefficient and made the boarding process crazy as people tried to make their way around luggage that was sitting in the aisles."
Cons: "It’s mainly all good but there are never really snacks on air canada other than pretzels (and today not even that). They are still my fave airline but they could step that up a bit!"
Pros: "People are couteous"
Cons: "Very cramped; big doing and dance about overhead room so I gate checked. There was empty overhead space and bags very slow to come out at baggage claim"
Pros: "Crew was great."

Pros: "I pre-ordered a breakfast, it was fresh and tasted good."
Cons: "The flight crew needed us to check our carry on luggage, due to space issues, but I noticed that there was a lot of extra space in the upper storage that hadn't been used."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "except the snow in Canada"
Cons: "They charge us extra $140. Which they not supposed to. Your flight experience is very good. But airport experience was very Bad If possible please return our money which you taken On airport. Aircoditionar at thermal was bad too. They keep us (all passengers)stand around 30 min in that condition."
Pros: "It was a non stop. We left on time, arrived on time. The cheese snack purchase was good. The crew was polite."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, but it was not a long flight."
Pros: "Good price, clean, free movies, descent movie selection."
Cons: "Bring your own snacks. No gluten free options unless pre-arrange. No fruit, no peanuts, no option to buy food, and the snack gallery only had pretzels. If you like bread, butter and water, should be ok. Close seats, can feel movement of people beside and behind."
Cons: "Food is not appetizing, flight crews are just ok, entertainment are limited."
Pros: "The crew is always tops. Despite being out of coffee, they were good-natured and funny and kind."
Cons: "My seat was super uncomfortable for some reason. Maybe the cushion was coming off? I couldn't adjust it because the guy next to me was so tall and taking up so much room (not his fault!) So anyway my butt totally fell asleep because this weird hard line/bar was poking me."
Pros: "Seats are cramped - spacing is too small. Will avoid Air Canada in future"
Pros: "Entertainment programes in TV is good"

Cons: "No leg room, no snack. I had requested wheelchair service and was not met with a wheelchair as I exited the plane. Had to walk up the jetway. No onboard entertainment."
Cons: "Several hours late due to repairs, despite the plane originating from Air Canada's hub. Seems they should have had a spare available to not delay us the several hours that they did. As I live 2 hours from the airport, it was not until I got there to check in that I was aware of the delay."
Pros: "The crews were nice and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "There were so much miscommunication. Coming from Hong Kong it was late for 3 hrs , then I need to pick up my luggages and went thru immigration. Missed the flight to Toronto, checked at the counter and was told did not need to pick up my luggage until I got to Atlanta. Well at Toronto, my luggages didn't go through. I had to pick them up and went thru immigration on the USA side again. Missed my flight again! It was so frustrating except all the employees were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The movies, and the snacks!"
Cons: "There was 2 passport controls, and the plane was late ; therefore, we had to wait 6 hours for our next flight. Knowing that we had another flight to catch - why couldn't they have held up the one going to Seattle? Originally, it was 5 hours for the next flight, but, that flight was delayed. NEVER will we fly through Canada again. Honestly, we can drive from Vancouver to Seattle in 3.5 hours!"
Pros: "clean and on time"
Cons: "boarding could be a bit more smooth. more leg room wouldn't hurt"
Pros: "Everything.....the staff were excellent......pure and simple"
Cons: "- No drink service offered on the second flight - Hard seat in coach, very uncomfortable flight, won't fly Air Canada ever again"
Pros: "I didn't get any food or entertainment.. however the staff were very professional, polite, and helpful when needed to be."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "My daughter's first trip to Canada, with a brand new suitcase. By the time she arrived in Canada her suitcase was lost. Then ended up in the London Airport even though she flew into Ontario. When she picked up the suitcase it was wet and missing one wheel. On the return flight to Tampa when the suitcase arrived it was missing two of the four wheels in the corner was completely ripped off which was exposing what was inside. The handling of the suitcases is awful and she should receive a replacement suitcase"
Cons: "we pre booked seats at #14 because our daughter cannot walk without help, we took her to and from the plane by wheelchair to make it easier, they bumped us to seat # 32 , the very last one, that is a long walk, at check in the woman there was rude when we told her of our situation and that we had seats, she said there was nothing she could do because the plane was full, she was not very helpful at all, and asked if we wanted to take another plane. Our whole family has been traveling with air Canada, but I think it's time for a change. Very disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing, from your rude gate agents and closing the gates far too early when passengers are waiting in excessively long lines at customers to in flights systems being broken, your service is abhorrent."
Cons: "Your gate agents refusing to keep the gates open to the appropriate boarding times, you over priced food, being improsojed in our seats and no access to the toilets due to a 2 hour in flight food and beverage service. not receiving water until after 2 hours II the flight! And no second beverage offered on a 5 hour flight!"
Cons: "The seats are way to close, I am short and I had no room. There is no way those seats are far approved, cause they're is no way in an emergency people would be able to crawl out if those seats. There was no snack at all, not even pretzels, nothing."
Cons: "Very rude staff, my flight from Dublin was delayed for three hours on the runway why they fix the leak for the restrooms. Once we landed I had to clear customs in Canada and get to the new flight. They told me when I finally had to make through the airport and through customs that I need to manage my time better and understand and give myself plenty of time to make the flight.. REALLY??? It wasn't my fault that their crappy plane wasn't working right wasn't my fault we were delayed but I need to manage my time better I think they fell and bumped their head!!"
Cons: "I cannot believe the nickel and dining of this company. I was on a 3 hour international flight (just USA to Canada, but still), and they served no snacks. Not even a bag of pretzels! Forget about free alcoholic beverages you normally get on international flights."
Pros: "A very nice Air Canada person from Toronto Airport really helped us speed up the baggage check-in process, because we were late. Then, in the terminal, the crew was waiting for us even if we were so late ( 5 mins before landing time)"
Cons: "We had to pay for snacks. Snacks should be included in the high price of the tickets (about 500 CAD $). We ordered and paid extra for food snacks, but some of the items were not available even they were displayed in the food menu/catalog. We asked for a blanket for my daughter who was sleeping but Air Canada didn't have any blanket !! After we boarded, we realized that we didn't have space to put any hand baggages ! We are a family of 5 and we didn't have space to put even one hand baggage! Unacceptable!"
Cons: "The delay, but that was not your fault."
Pros: "India ( flight attendant) provided very poor customer service during flight. I have been a nurse for 24 years and i simply asked for a cool cloth for a gentleman sitting next to me that was feeling ill and very pale. India returned with 5 emesis bags and no cloth and never once came back to check on the gentleman!!! I really wish it was not a full flight because i would have advised him to puke all over everything. How hard was it to provide a cool cloth?? Really? I know first class has wash cloths and that was an easy request. And the fact that she never came back to see if we needed anything or to tell us she did not have a cloth for him. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I will think twice about flying Air Canada again. Thank god for good citizeans willing to help strangers in a time of need."
Cons: "Poor ccustomer service by flight attendants and no follow up on ill passengers."
Pros: "The Air Canada agents and staff were very helpful and accommodating to the best of their ability. I hugged one female AC Agent in TO as she was so kind and helpful, and told her she was the highlight of my day."
Cons: "The processing of Air Canada passengers to the connecting Gates and through Customs for USA international flights was a nightmare. It was very disorganized, with hundreds of passengers herded like cattle, poor communication, customs slips not provided on the AC Flight before landing so as to be completed in advance. There was staff shortage, and not done in a timely manner so as to make your connecting Flight. It has truly been a most stressful experience for me this and each time I have to go through Toronto to make a connecting flight , and I will avoid this flight plan in the future at all cost."
Cons: "Air Canada ROUGE is very different than Air Canada :("
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. I liked that I could choose an exit row seat when I checked in and didn't have to pay extra. The crew was friendly. The plane seemed nice and new"
Cons: "The leg room was a bit tight, and the guy behind me kept putting his knees into my back. I don't know if it was poor seat design or what, but he wasn't particularly tall."
Cons: "Mechanical problems and missed flight to Milan. Then next day flight to Milan delayed. Air canada put us up in cheep hotel with minimal food vouchers."
Pros: "Very fast flight"
Cons: "In flight Audio didn't work"
Cons: "No free entertainment, no meals, or snacks"
Pros: "I loved the 787 with the mood lighting and humidified air. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive. I loved the warm towels after take off and before landing!!!"
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Toronto. Could have done with a much shorter layover. A Dr. Pepper as a soda selection would be nice but not essential."
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Left late so missed connection. Was put up in a mediocre hotel."
Pros: "Arrival and departure on time."
Cons: "Prefered seating promised more leg room. However I paid 63 dollar extra for same type of economy seat. Long lines to drop bags at airport, even after checking online, paying for bags, and printing bag tags. Check in seemed disorganized. I had TSA prechecked on arrival, but still needed to wait in very long lines upon departure."
Cons: "Had requested assistance for my mother and air canada passed the buck putting the responsibility to the airport when in fact it should be the carriers responsibility to make arrangements with the airport staff to provide the assistance between gates for seniors with mobility issues at both the Pearson and Tampa airports. Very disheartening how they treat seniors and vets"
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
Pros: "Yes very helpful"
Cons: "Better food service"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "i never made it to tampa and it was because the staff refused to help and offer assistance. SAS staff was the reason i missed my flight."
Pros: "I liked the cost, BUT..."
Cons: "I didn't like that it wasn't readily advertised you get put at the back of the bus, bottom of the pile, lowest point on the totem pole. In other words, I was booked on my return trip as Basic Economy- no frills, no thrills. Last to board, no carry-on allowed. I had to end up paying the same for that portion of my round-trip as I would have if I'd just booked through United. $60 in checked baggage. NOT happy with Kayak more than anything."
Pros: "Everything on Kayak was fast and simple!:)"
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Pros: "Flight on time, bathroom was clean. Flight attendants did their jobs, but were arrogant"
Cons: "I checked in online and was asked to pay $25 for my 1 checked bag, but was told at airport i shouldnt have been charged bcuz 1st checked bag is free. Why did i have to pay $25?"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to help the best they could"
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for an hour with no a/c. I had my grandmother with me who uses a wheel chair and is diabetic. I am also 17 weeks pregnant. The entire experience was terrible. One lady on the plane ended up needing a paramedic because of sitting in the heat so long. All we got was a sorry."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Instead of a full can of soda with glass of ice, just recieve a glass with v ice and a bit of soda from the can."
Pros: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Pros: "The crew was mostly friendly. One crew member didn't look too happy to be there, but the rest were quite friendly. The flight took off on time or earlier. We landed and started exiting the plane about 15 minutes earlier than expected which is always good. Even though you had to pay for the entertainment, they did provide one channel without paying and played a couple tv episodes."
Cons: "I don't really have any complaints, it was a good trip."
Cons: "Gate crew was rude and I'm helping boarding process was terrible unorganized chaotic snacks were terrible only soda for drinks seats were terrible hard cramped no leg room very poor conditions no entertainment onboard systems did not work crew on board complaining about United Airlines"
Pros: "Comfort horrible in 2nd plane"
Pros: "I was in economy + which had good leg room"
Cons: "Overhead bins for economy + are placed elsewhere. Preselected meal not available and was delayed in serving the alternative for 20 mins. Entertainment options include TV shows with 1 episode to pad the numbers"
Cons: "Plane packed, delayed, and entertainment not working. Sucked."
Pros: "A very smooth ride"
Cons: "Too cramped, fligjt delay of over an hour"
Pros: "The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. I had just flown in with united from Hawaii and landed 6. 15 am that morning and the employees assisted as I was not familiar with the airport. Will definitely fly united again."
Pros: "On time, gates were close together"
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Pros: "Professional, friendly service."
Cons: "I had originally booked an isle or window seat and ended up in the middle This made it very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"
Pros: "Had an entire row for myself. Flight was quick and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not seem to enjoy their jobs and can the seats get any more uncomfortable? It really is okay to put some padding in the seat cushions. Is it really necessary to charge for the movies?"
Pros: "Willingness to check carry ons for sold out flights"
Cons: "Choosing of seats process. My traveling partner and I did not get to sit together on way home. Everyone was nice and got a free upgrade but would have been nice to sit together"
Pros: "I was delayed in EWR Airport for 4hours with very short notice after I cleared TSA.and was going to my gate From a 3:15 departure to 7: :15.Arrived in Tampa at 10:30pm. That was not good at all there was no plan made for that not a meal served after that long wait just a soda and a little pretzels."
Pros: "Since that flight was 2 hours late leaving I was not on it."
Cons: "Total lack of communication between silver airways and passengers. Also think crew scheduling was pretty lax in communicating with own staff."
Pros: "Getting to Tampa"
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours in the airport and landing in Tampa 3 hours before I had to work... In the MORNING"
Pros: "Flight attendants we good."
Cons: "It took 6 hours to get from Newark to Tampa, had to detour to refuel.. The weather on the ground seems decent but we were in so much turbulence for so long people were vomiting!! Worst flight experience ever and the pilot, thank God for his experience, was a bit sarcastic and said he wouldn't apologize for the bad experience bc it wasn't his fault."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pleasant and effective."
Cons: "Charging for movies? Charging for Snacks? Charging for my one piece of luggage?"
Pros: "Food options were varied, which was nice. Extra legroom helped a little."
Cons: "I upgraded to economy plus and still felt cramped in my seat. Width of seats doesn't allow for comfortable movement of arms. I'm not a large person, either. Larger issue for me is separate charges for everything. I'd rather pay for a higher priced ticket that includes everything. Maybe an opt-out model would help so people who don't want to eat or check a bag are happy and those who do don't don't feel nickeled and dimed throughout their entire trip."
Pros: "It boarded well."
Cons: "The seats are way to tight my shoulder was up against the stranger next to me the whole flight and if I leaned forward to sip on my drink the chair in front of me hit my head when the person moved. Also the tv's only showed one channel and wanted to charge me even to watch the in flight map. Stop being so cheap!! Also no one ever say please prepare for landing before we landed."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "It was full"
Pros: "Friendly and reliable."
Cons: "No free snacks, entertainment hard to access"
Pros: "the crew was very nice"
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable, the rows too close together, with a general crammed in like sardines feeling. The angle of the recline was not right either."
Pros: "Good boarding was fast"
Cons: "Food was very bad Entertainment systen was broken Service was non existant"
Cons: "Leg room was so bad that my knees touched the seat in front when I crept them straight with my bud all the way in the seat. Very uncomfortable. Flight was going to be on time but then we waited a long time in small seats for a couple passengers from other flight that came in late. Some of these passengers showed up with food. So apperantly they did have time for that. Entertainment was pain to navigate and hard to avoid buttons on arm rest when using it as arm rest."
Pros: "Direct flight. A couple of the crew members were nice. Good take off and landing."
Cons: "Old "dingy" planes. Unorganized boarding procedure. A couple of the crew members were disrespectful, combative, whining about other passengers and definitely needed to be trained in customer service. Chicken/pasta was bland and not cooked well, pairing of the food was terrible, in fact they even had the wrong condiments - they gave butter with the omelette but no bread. In that case, instead of butter, ketchup would have made sense. The music section of entertainment had one song in each genre. Poor touch screen, no pullout remote and not the best selection/ not properly organized. Overall, I would say, United needs to learn from their peers - middle eastern and asian airlines about service, food and process. The only thing going for them is the direct connectivity"
Pros: "Waited 9 hours while they "tried to find a crew" - then they cancelled it. Rude staff - completely disorganized. Had to wait in line for over two hours after it was cancelled to rebook for the next day."
Pros: "I loved the TV, the seats, the window view"
Pros: "Roomy seats, on schedule."
Cons: "Saw on the news United would finally be offering free snacks, so that eliminates my major complaint. Did think it was a bit stingy of the airline to expect passengers to pay for TV. Glad I didn't do it because shows were frequently interrupted by a notice flashing across the screen that the P.A. system was in use."
Pros: "Boarding was handled well. When we hit turbulence the pilot immediately made an announcement that it was storms and OK. Nice landing. We were on time."
Cons: "The cabin crew was nearly nonexistent, surly to the point of rude when any customer asked a question and more interested in chatting at the back with each other than serving customers. One drink cart (no snacks for a 3-hour flight) pass, then be prepared to keep your trash in the extremely tight space until the pilot starts the descent. Bare bones travel without the discounted price."
Pros: "Terrible absolutely disappointing experience.... No food on a 3 plus hour flight is unacceptable!!! Besides late flight causing more then a dozen grown up people to have to run to catch a flight Very unhappy!!!"
Pros: "If just two rows of seats could be removed it would make things so much better. I'm only 5' tall and still barely have enough room. My boyfriend is 6' tall and can't even move once he's in. Of course it's hard financially to pay $300 extra per ticket to visit family so we suffer through."
Cons: "No entertainment at all! And was told that I may have to get on a different flight on a different airline because of weight issues."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seating, lack of food, being late"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant on the plane and the pilot was excellent."
Cons: "Half of the plane was empty. Though the extra seats are considered "economy plus" if the seats are not occupied, there should be last minute seat upgrades at no charge for the comfort of the passengers, instead of trying to "nickel and dime" us. The passengers that get upgraded would have more room and there would be less congestion in regular economy seating and would amplify the pleasant nature of people while traveling."
