Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Food came in a paper bag but still was good and plenty. The plane was an Airbus-330, it's a smaller plane for shorter routes but the seats were actually more comfortable than the newest Boeing 787-9 they use for long hauls."
Cons: "Don't bus the passengers to the plane and make them climb the stairs. It's almost 2020."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "At check in"
Pros: "The crew made a bad decision concerning me and another passenger. I had extra leg room in front of him and he still insisted on crushing my knees with his reclining part of his seat. The stewardess choice to side with him because it was ok to crush my knees because he paid for a upgrade in seat,"
Cons: "I will be filing a complaint about this matter soon and request a refund for the total disrespect of me as a paying customer,which they did not value at all"
Pros: "Entertainment and staff help"
Cons: "Seat was horrible. We suffered for 14 long hours. Our seat was next to the cooler and there was continuos noise. We could not sleep as wink and I was with 2 small kids. I booked ethiad for a good experience and suffered a lot. Never again."
Pros: "Nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I requested for a aisle seat as I was travelling with 2 yrs old but they put me in the middle with other two people on th side . Very horrible ."
Pros: "Business class seating"
Cons: "Bathrooms covered in urine No offer of wake up call for breakfast by staff"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive stewardesses. Beautiful too"
Cons: "The internet connection "Wi-Fly" is very weak. Data rates are outrageous. $4.95 plan is basically good for 5 minutes, $11.95 plan maybe lasts 10 minutes. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Entertainment on flight was good. Very comfortable seating and courteous crew. Food was above average with not much variety."
Cons: "In-flight WIFI was very slow and felt a bit expensive. Boarding was a bit unorganized, but OK. Flight arrived a bit late and took-off 3 hrs late than the estimated take-off time and there was nothing offered in-flight during this time apart from water, which was a very bad experience."
Pros: "I'd never flown Etihad before and had a 13 hour flight followed by a 5 hour flight with them so I went in with fingers crossed for a good experience. My flight from JFK to Abu Dhabi was on an A380 and it was a spectacular plane. The crew was amazing the entertainment selection was great, the bathrooms were clean - it was a great experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints other than it would have been nice to be able to go online and have a look at my seating & have the option to change my seat. Fortunately I didn't need to change my seat but it would be nice to have the option to at least look."
Cons: "The flight left > 2 hours late from JFK to Abu Dhabi, and my connection was changed midair. Instead of changing it to the next flight, they changed it to a flight 16 hours later so I missed my entire day of meetings. The paid internet did not work inflight so I couldn't check my connection or receive emails. The crew was not friendly, and they also wouldn't give anyone any information about their connections during the flight, which resulted in ~80 people rushing the crew and the desk. It was very messy."
Pros: "The business class lounge at Abu dabi the cabin crew"
Cons: "The cabin crew rudeness was unbearable"
Pros: "Nice 777"
Cons: "Quality of the food very bad"

Pros: "I was more than pleasantly surprised by the level of service, comfort and food on this flight. I typically dread these long haul flights, but this was actually a pleasant experience. The fold flat seats are comfortable and roomy, the food and meal service, when you want it is convenient if you wish to dine on your schedule, not the airlines and the general high level and friendly service was much appreciated. The "lounge" space they have between the first and business class cabins is fantastic; its a small bar like area where you can get out of your seat and chat with other passengers, watch news, read or whatever, and not be confined to your seat. Overall a great experience, Arrived having slept, eat and drank well."
Pros: "The aircraft and leg space in rare seats."
Cons: "The boarding and getting off the aircraft was mess and no proper arrangement for transportation at Abu Dhabi. The ground staff was not cordial enough."
Cons: "I dislike how early the entertainment system shuts off"

Pros: "Crew and service"

Cons: "No other options but mostly spicy"

Pros: "Crew was really nice, it was clean and prompt."
Cons: "More movie selection would be nice"
Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."
Pros: "I sat in the aisle seat so it was fairly roomy. The movies selection was very good."
Cons: "The Air Hostess was fairly rude to one particular passenger. Given that that passenger was fairly aggressive in asking for children kits, and the Air Hostess was doing her best to inform her that she has to give them all to the children first. Unfortunately it was very condescending the way she talked to the said lady. I felt that it could have been handle better. The guy next to me, his On Flight entertainment wasn't working. i felt bad for him."
Pros: "Courtesy of employees"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The entertainment was great, crew very helpful and overall a good flight"
Pros: "I like the crew but at Abu Dhabi airport custmer service is poor I lost my scarf at airplane it was too complicated to get it and I was running out of time so I left it"

Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving New York and arrived Abu Dhabi late. Had to rush to catch the connecting flight."
Pros: "boarding procedure ; service in flight was good"
Pros: "The crew was incredible!!!!"
Cons: "The entertainment system needs to be turned on much earlier. Even before takeoff. Also it's stops way to early."
Cons: "1. After the Baggage items were weighed & slips were attached, they had to be handled by us and the Staff was very uncooperative. Actually one passenger ahead of us complained that why he had to take his Baggage items to the conveyor. As I understood, it is responsibility of the Etihad Air lines Staff to handle & take care of Baggage items after airline stickers are printed & applied/ attached on them. Counter clerks were not cooperative & cordial at all. 2. Food was OK except the Breakfast or meal before arrival at Abu Dhabi."
Pros: "First time flyer with them and can't say enough hood things about it. Wonderful airlines."
Pros: "Loved the flight from New York to Abu Dhabi great food great seats even in economy and great service as usual. one of the best flights i have taken"

Pros: "We got to London on time"
Cons: "Is an old plane with a old hard product needs to be retired or retrofitted"

Pros: "The flight crew were excellent"
Cons: "The seat didn’t recline. So when the passenger in front of me pushed her chair down, i had little to no space to put my food Boarding was not properly managed. The gate agebts did npt ask to check travel documents before boarding therefore delaying the flow of boarding traffic"
Cons: "2 Hours delay I lost my connection it took like 10 more hours to get to my destination I finally got to my destination my luggage was misiing today is Tuesday July 24th and I’m still waiting no luggage and dress with the same clothes since Sunday"

Cons: "Unable to book a seat in advance"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "We made it safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed The seats were very uncomfortable in priority section. The entertainment was not working for a good 2 hours, untill the engineer reset the system. No USB or outlet ports for charging the devices. Excuse me, but it is 2017."
Cons: "We started out over 1 hour late. When we arrived in Heathrow we weren't able to take the aircraft to the gate, instead we had to wait for over 30 min for the bus to take us to the terminal which made me miss my connecting flight by minutes. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Was happy that there was an empty seat in my row which allowed for a little more space and comfort. Food was filling and pretty tasty with free wine & spirits. Staff was friendly."
Pros: "It was on time and transfer was easy"
Pros: "A lot of space for legs"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and they have wo"
Cons: "Purchase through viyama, an Iberia flight that was a code share with British airways and American Airlines. Iberia is terrible with getting its passengers online check-in on their code share partners. Was unable to check-in, got stuck in middle seat. Return seems to be the same situation with American Airlines."
Pros: "Chair room"
Cons: "No free food"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Flight delayed - wish the give us updates periodically Warm, aircon not strong for a hot day Young crew is a guy who does not seem to be a customer service oriented person"
Cons: "It would've been so amazing to have wifi on a flight like that."
Cons: "Apathetic crew and service desk - missed flight with no automatic rebooking - I had to wait for two hours on arrival, then take a bus to a new airport and wait another 6 hours to get on a new flight. No upgrade, no compensation"
Cons: "Was given the wrong flight information. The email I received the day of the flight was incorrect and now I have no way of getting to Bergen until tomorrow. I am forced to spend the night in London. This is inexcusable."
Pros: "I loved the hot towel svc, the food and beverage svc. Flight attendants very attentive."
Pros: "Good economy flight from Heathrow to Madrid. Would recommend!"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. Free food and drinks, including alcohol was great. Flight crew went out of their way for all customers."
Cons: "Ran out of Chicken before they go to me.. felt the knees of the guy behind me the entire 7.5 hour flight, very annoying."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr resulting in my missing the connecting flight and an extra 12 hr wait at the airport, not a happy situation!"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The EMB140/145 is just a bit too confining for me... I don't normally suffer claustrophobia on flights, but I seriously almost stepped off the plane immediately after stepping on, given the low ceiling, and confining nature of the plane. If it had been a full flight, I'm not sure I would have made it without a full blown panic attack of claustrophobia."
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Pros: "Easy to upgrade at gate, though I had to ask twice."
Cons: "- horrific food. not even consistent w economy food on gulf airlines. - drab interiors - old aircraft - tiny business class seats - malfunctioning / sticky controls - extremely overpriced."
Cons: "Jfk massive queue at checkin/drop off"
Cons: "Late by 2 hrs and missing connecting flight to Berlin. Getting a new flight and ticket took an hour at the BA service desk."
Pros: "Dinner was nice, flight was not overbooked."
Cons: "Left two hours late so I missed my connection. Huge headache. But BA staff was very friendly about rebooking me."
Cons: "Everything about this flight was miserable. AVOID BRITISH AIRWAYS AT ALL COSTS!"
Pros: "I liked the on flight meal, and the staff was incredibly professional."
Cons: "That I had no space to check my bag by the time I boarded, and barely any leg room for my seat. That and incredible turbulence which made sleep near impossible."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Cons: "I would have preferred something more to eat, and to have my own entertainment unit."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, lovely staff, nice food, legroom and overall comfort. Flight not fully booked so we had a spare seat between us. Great entertainment."
Cons: "There was one air steward who kind of seemed to be constantly coming on straight after the pilot with very long, rambly comments in a very loud voice - I'd say he spoke for over 20 minutes total and of course he kept interrupting the entertainment! It wasn't safety stuff, it was general announcements. I wonder is it possible to just post a message on the screens that there's currently an announcement about e.g. shopping and then passengers could choose to stop and listen if they wanted? It felt very intrusive and stressful when it happened three or four times in a row, as it did several times."
Cons: "I booked a british airways flight and found myself boarding a partner company plane of American Airline with not personal screens, with a very chaotic boarding and had a 40 minute delay."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Food perferences"
Pros: "The special meal was horrible"
Cons: "Old plane. for International flight, not power outlets, no screens. Plane felt dirty."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accomodating given the delays and the change of planes"
Cons: "The plane was delayed an hour and a half. They had to change the gate twice. The worst part was the plane. The original plane had a problem and they replaced it with a tiny everyday commercial jet for a 7 hour flight. It was extremely uncomfortable and I felt like I got a bit robbed because of how expensive the flight was."
Pros: "Newer plane."
Cons: "Had to pay for most things."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to air traffic"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was a mess checking in"
Pros: "One lady was so mean when I asked her a question ."
Cons: "Be more smiling and helping customers when needed"
Pros: "Flight time"
Cons: "That I fly in Tourist"
Pros: "Saving grace: movie selection much better than expected. Food a bit better than expected (in the world of airline food). Crew capable & nice enough. We got to our destination on time, so at least there’s that."
Cons: "Boarding @ JFK was a joke. That part of airport is currently under construction, so massive # of ppl & not enough room for everyone. Once on plane, all reasonably good until we reached altitude & settled in for the evening. At that point, for some reason the heat came on between rows 39 & 46 (we were in row 45) & was on all. night. long. on an overnight flight. Crew was baffled & didn’t know how to fix. I was melting & miserable — impossible to sleep. Cramped, basic economy seats. Awful experience."
Cons: "I paid for wifi and I could not use it. There was a problem with the connexion. So, I paid for nothing"
Pros: "The entertainment was probably the best part of the flight."
Cons: "The staff were less than friendly, the food was terrible . Not to mention it was like pulling teeth to get a beverage from time to time. Wouldn’t do it again...... there too many service oriented airlines available to make this mistake again."
Pros: "NOTHING, now waiting in airport for four hours."
Cons: "55-minute connection across terminals - five of us missed this flight. Iberia didnt even offer a voucher for breakfast. Makes this an overnight nightmare"
Pros: "I liked the service and, the in flight entertainment system. It was good food."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy class. I was thinking for an overseas flight the would be more than 31 inches pitch of legroom, Mabye the can work on that on such a big plane."
Pros: "Excellent meal in premium economy. As good as business class on other airlines"
Cons: "Boarding process is excrutiating"
Pros: "Crew was lovely. Economy seats were on the roomier side. Entertainment options were excellent. Would choose to fly with them again."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Boarding process was poorly organized."
Pros: "Great flight overall. Good food, pleasant crew. Easy boarding process"
Cons: "they had fancy touch screen TVs that at the beginning of the trip showed all the movie options... They then never activated during the entire transatlantic flight after takeoff."
Pros: "Landing was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Air hostess were pleasant. Take off and landing were super smooth. Plane was new and very spacious."
Cons: "Boarding process was confusing and disorganized. There were no vegetarian food options available for the dinner."
Pros: "Reclination system, closer and closer to the AVE, is an advantage. Although still to improve how not to disturb the passenger behind you."
Cons: "Boarding was messy. We barely fitted in the waiting area. Food quite crappy, especially breakfast."
Pros: "It was fine, nothing special"
Cons: "The internet was very, very expensive! $35 for very very slow internet that didn't work half of the time. Also, before I departed from the US, the customer service rep at JFK made me purchase a refundable plane ticket for $2500, and charged me a non refundable fee of $35 for booking the flight for me ( I asked how to do it via the Iberia website on my phone and she refused to help me, and the website makes it extremely not obvious how to book a refundable flight). She said because my flight was one way to Europe I had to have an onward flight, even though I was traveling by car outside of Europe. She said that they would ask me for it at customs when I arrived in Europe. Well they have never asked me for this before, and they did not ask me this time either when I arrived, so this whole exercise was pointless. When I called to get my ticket refunded, they also charged me a $25 fee for refunding the ticket, which the agent in NY did not tell me about. So I just ate $60 for no reason. In addition, the customer service person was very rude about the whole thing."
Pros: "On time to madrid... late to Alicante"
Cons: "Personal video screen froze and didnt work...chicken meal was too salty. Britisk airways cancelled our return transatlantic flight LGW to JFK and the Iberia (one world) representative Alicante airport could not help us getting on another flight we now are landing in LGW and have to transfer to LHR at iour own expense and are getting to J FK almost 4 hour later than scheduled...spenrt over 40 minutes on phone with British airways at international cell phone rates which also cost us a fortune"
Cons: "The only bad thing is that the checking at JFK was very long!!!!"
Cons: "Delays delays delays!!! Terrible!! We were waiting 7 hours!! No compensation was offered!"
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "check-in very poor. Priority check-in was slower than the others. The attendant was unhelpful and had inaccurate information"
Cons: "We were in JFK for over 24 hours being lied to and being promised that our flight to Madrid although late would leave that day. We were changed from boarding door to boarding door, we were told that there were no hotel rooms available in New York that they could place us in and told that they were testing a plane and as soon as it was confirmed it could fly we would be on it. At approx. 1am or a little after we (the passengers) from the flight were located at boarding door 7 and they brought an Iberia plane right by the windows in hopes that we would be put at ease at the sight of a possible flight only to find out that there are no flights out of JFK after 1am. The lies they told and or lack of truths was very frustrating"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "We didn't start boarding until the scheduled departure time. Made my connection much tighter than it needed to be."
Pros: "Lie-flat seats were very comfortable. Flight was quite smooth. Left late but arrived on schedule. Wine was very good."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. IFE was so-so. Baggage handling was very slow on arrival."
Cons: "Missed my connection because they weren't super clear about the gate and then just kept me on standby. Would have liked to have had some options, like actually booking my flight so maybe I could have explored Madrid on my 9 hour layover after missing my flight by 4 minutes. And then they kept me shuttling back and forth while doing this. I went through security 4 times."
Cons: "Terrible Uncomfortable Overbooked"
Pros: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent movie selection, ample leg room, clean and new plane, staff was attentive."
Cons: "Food was average, foot rests were hard to operate, alcohol selection was scant, only beer and wine are complimentary, you must pay for spirits in premium economy"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, comfortable and very nice staff."
Cons: "See Above. There was a 2.5 hour delay. I was worried I would not make my flight to Vigo, but I did"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Pretty hassle free. Our flight wasn't completely full which helped. International flight so food was served as well as complimentary wine and beer. Would fly with them again."
Pros: "Food was good. Nice blanket and pillow."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. I read online that they were but tought it can't be that bad. In real life, I was amazed by their general disregard and apathy associated with their job and us flyers. It was worse than the reviews. I really felt like they hated Americans. One flight attendant rolled her eyes when asked for something, another snacked her lips. They really don't seem like they like their jobs or their customers. If that's the case, move on."
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Pros: "The entertainment was readily available."
Pros: "I was safely delivered from New York to Tennessee in pretty turbulent weather."
Cons: "The craft was small and the seating was cramped, seats were uncomfortable. The flight attendant was very brief with the Safety protocols and really did a poor job of demonstrating how to use the safety equipment provided on the aircraft. This was a disservice to first time flyers."
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Plane and crew"
Cons: "Good flight"
Cons: "The air conditioning was not working correctly, they opened the door during boarding to allow for some relief. ??? It was just uncomfortable. Another thing which is terribly annoying is the touch screen entertainment on the back of the seat. Who in their right mind invented this? What happens when you have a inconsiderate person playing games behind you tapping your seat back like they are playing the xylophone? Ridiculous! People have lost their ability to be respectful, so please get rid of this and put the controls someplace else. This goes for all airlines. Thanks."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Misplaced luggage. Long lines. Poor staffing. Had to give up food vouchers for delayed flight given long lines just to pick up vouchers. Long lines due to poor staffing."
Cons: "There was bad weather which understandably caused delays, however the communication during this eventual 16 hour delay was horrendous. We were told for the first two hours that we would be delayed each hour and then they would make a decision to delay another hour. This went on for 4 hours (the last two hours of which we did not receive any updates). The flight was originally scheduled to leave at 8:10. At 12:30am we were told our plane was at the gate and being prepared for us to board and the agent giving announcements said we were "guaranteed to leave TONIGHT". At 1am we were told that unfortunately the plane got to the gate just a bit too late and not the crew are not legally allowed to fly and the flight would be pushed back until 8am. At the time, I thought 7 hours was strange and I'd assume the crew would need more like 8-10 hours to rest. Unfortunately because we were told so late, all hotels were booked up. I live in NYC and would've gone home for the night however because we needed to be back by 6am (what the agent suggested), there seemed no point in leaving. We were not provided with any pillows or blankets until 4 in the morning. At 6am the next morning, we were told the crew needed "more rest time" and that our new departure time would be 9:30. How is it that the crew now needs more time? Shouldn't that have been figured out at 1am? Before we board, one of the agents thinks they will "lighten the mood" with the following comment - "Who would've thought a little bad weather would've caused this?" Absolutely not a time for jokes and people were very angry. We finally board for what we think is finally a 9:30am take off. No - now two new issues - 1, the co pilot is late (LATE? how can you be late when a flight has been delayed 16 hours) and 2, they needed to remove package from the plane for people who were no longer taking this flight. In the end, we took off around 11:30am which messed up a lot of peoples connecting flights, pick ups at the airport, etc. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Iberia had outstanding service"
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "This is a horrible airlline. No inoformation or connecting here info in Madrid, no agents anywhere to be found. Online check-in malfunctions food was the worst food I ever saw. Airline causes huge amount of unecessary sress."
Cons: "Terrible American Airlines customer service. Avoid AA including "alliances" with other airlines."
Cons: "flight was delayed, still don't have my luggage"
Pros: "Extremely disapointed of the way i had to find what airline was in charge of the flight. I almost missed it. I had to ask 3 different airlines, nobody could help me, i had to change terminal. Etc... Very stressful. Kayak explained very badly. I think about writing a review on your website and others"
Pros: "It was on time and good selection on movies"
Cons: "Iberia needs new aircrafts... They are always kinda old..."
Pros: "Flight from NYC to Madrid"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for 3 days and no compensation for out of pocket expenses Flight from Madrid to Florence"
Pros: "Movies and food were both very good."
Cons: "Boarding was laugh out loud stupid. Worse than cattle. No announcements. Looked like the entire process was run by high schoolers. They wouldn't let us board till the last because we hadn't booked a return on BA. Among the worst flights ever"
Cons: "Put in standby, even with reservation. Choppy fight."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination. The crew was sympathetic to the plane's deficiencies."
Cons: "The reading lights didn't work. The movie had no sound. The charging station was outdated. The food was terrible"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Flight took 3 hours longer than expected and they lost the baggage of me and 50+ other travellers"
Cons: "My problem is when United uses Air Canada the privileges that United gives don't exist and they treat you like anyone else... If I'm gold status with United theb I should be with Air Canada as well"
Cons: "I may be mistaken here, but apparently since I am not a permanent US resident, I needed a transit visa to fly through Canada, although this was not advertised anywhere. As such, we were not allowed to check in our flight and had to cancel our tickets a few hrs prior to boarding and book tickets on antoher flight. We would up losing good money since we were traveling as a family with kids. The silver lining is we flew Emirates which we should have chosen from the very beginning."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "Direct flight saved time."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean. Convenient connecting gates. Flight duration."
Cons: "- Poor quality food - Extremely poor inflight entertainment - Flight delayed no real explanation provided"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."
Cons: "I reached delhi a day late and missed an important event. See ablove"
Cons: "They over sold tickets"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "It's on time"
Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."
Pros: "There was an excellent agent during boarding. I didn't catch his name but he was a tall dark skin gentlemen and he went over and beyond to assit me. His kindness left a lasting impression on me. I only wish I had his name, because he deserves to be noticed for his excellent service."
Pros: "Flight was on time with easy boarding and exiting"
Cons: "The peddling of food drink and duty free alcohol was not pleasant plus not given with a smile"
Pros: "Early and luggage delivered quickly"
Cons: "The flight was considerably delayed, so that we missed our connection, the airport personnel at Newark sent us all over the place attempting to pass off the problem onto somebody else- even encouraging passengers to go to Montreal and "figure it out from there." Bags were taken off the plane and then put back on...the subsequent flight (the next day) was also delayed, and required half he plane to sprint through Montreal to their connections. It was not worth it. Especially considering I tried to call Air Canada for some of my refund and the number they gave me was a fax line."
Pros: "seamless flight"
Cons: "movie choices were poor"
Cons: "Flight was delayed - no problem. But. Then kept getting delayed til I knew my connecting flight was missed. Talked to gate attandent who could care less. Told me and many others not her problem. Need to talk to someone in Toronto. Fortunately in Toronto they took care of things"
Cons: "All three Air Canada flights that I had to take on this itinerary were late including the 2nd one which was six hours late. Air Canada personnel on this 2nd flight did not do a good job of communicating information to the customers during the delay. Air Canada booked be on a 3rd night that lead me to only get 3 hours sleep in a hotel. AC does not work with the customers when booking flights. they just make changes after the previous flight has left the ground."
Pros: "Flight was good.dela"
Cons: "Delay for both ways"
Pros: "Boarding by zones worked efficiently and boarding was quite smooth. Flight was smooth as well."
Cons: "First time flying this airline and I was surprised to see TVs on the plane though they had a smaller selection than other airlines. They made an announcement at the gate before boarding that anyone with a US passport had to complete an info card. I feel that was an inefficient way to collect that information as people who arrived after the announcement did not complete it. The card seemed a bit pointless."
Pros: "Free movies."
Cons: "Delays at the gate going and coming back"
Pros: "Great crew. But aircraft had mechanical issues."
Cons: "Stuck on plane for 90 minutes before take off."
Pros: "Really took advantage by jacking the prices on return flight changes caused by their cancellation of outbound due to weather Because I had two one way flights, the changes required for the return flight were my problem"
Cons: "Ripoff 500 and two hours of hold time to get acrewed"
Pros: "Nothing much, only the plane was clean"
Cons: "Horrible food and service. Organization in boarding was poor."
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable and didn't recline"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled and no alternative arrangements made Worst thing the guy at front desk did not even announce the cancellation and subsequent impact Poor customer service"
Pros: "Everyone was super polite"
Cons: "After waiting at the airport for hours with multiple delays the flight cancelled. I still haven't made it home. Today is my little girls 2nd birthday and I have been away from her for 12 days now. The earliest flight I could get is 10am. I won't get home till at least 12 noon."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. We even landed a good 20 minutes before we were supposed to. Best flight I've been had"
Cons: "Short movie list"
Pros: "Nothing. Simply don't buy off of kayak"
Cons: "Liars. Flight lost my baggage. Left gate late as usual. Awful flight with shitty crew"
Pros: "We were very impressed with Air Canada and would highly recommend flying with them to any destination!"
Cons: "Organized, friendly, polite staff. Everything ran very smoothly, especially the actual flight."
Cons: "Difficult to understand the boarding announcer at the gate, although it may have been a function of poor audio equipment at the airport."
Pros: "Flight was ontime! Attendants were corteous"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "did not get my choice of meal Crew not accommodating"
Pros: "Staff fun and competent."
Cons: "Staff were overworked, and when did they stop offering a meal on long haul flights? Instead an ala carte system that TOOK FOREVER. Any crummy entertainment. Very disappointing..."
Pros: "The extremely unempathetic Toronto Air Canada customer service agent was a particularly fond memory from my trip."
Cons: "After weather forced us to miss our flight to Delhi from Toronto (understandable), Air Canada booked us on an AC flight to London and then an Air India flight to Delhi from London. In Toronto they told us that we couldnt get our bags because they were in storage, but that they would be on the plane to London and then to Delhi. Upon arriving in London, Air India told us that Air Canada never booked us on their flight to Delhi - that neither of our names were on their manifest. Air India was helpful in getting Air Canada's mistake fixed. Upon arriving in India, my partners bag was nowhere to be found. It would be logical to assume that his bag was in London and never made the imaginary flight Air Canada booked us on. However, even though our bags sat in Air Canada storage for 24 hours, his bag was never even loaded onto our flight to London. He didn't receive his bag until 6 days into our trip, causing all of us to miss out on multiple experiences, including the ability to leave Delhi because of our need to get his bag and multiple missed and promised deadlines from the airline."
Pros: "Air Canada provided accommodations for me when I was informed about my removal from my connecting flight."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the sassy customer service representative who "assisted" me in redirecting me for the next possible flight to India. She booked me for a flight to London and told me that I was also confirmed for an Air India flight from London to Delhi. This "confirmation" was false after checking in with Air India. There was no entry of me being registered for the flight. Luckily, there were enough seats to make my accommodation. The looming concern that followed was that my bag was clearly not going to be in Delhi once I arrived to my destination. This then became my reality and had to deal with not having my luggage for 6 days in India. There was blatant disregard between both airlines in trying to deliver my bag to me. They both blamed each other and refused to claim responsibility. With both refusing to claim fault, I had to fend for myself and pay for clothes and other necessities. Hands down, the WORST experience I've ever endured while traveling with any airline. I vow to never fly Air Canada and Air India ever again."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Pros: "Great crew, delicious samosas! Awesome selection of movies"
Cons: "I'm skinny but tall and it is my opinion that these seats are uncomfortably small/narrow The room UNDER the seats is smaller than in other planes as well, so it's tougher to stow your gear"
Pros: "The crew and boarding is always efficient."
Cons: "It is a must to upgrade your seat if traveling longer than 3 hours."
Pros: "Service was good, not exceptional. The flight departed on time. The food was ok, nothing outstanding! Air Canada did not let me carry my second bag for free made me question the reason for not picking another airline!"
Cons: "Flight overbooked. Told I didn't have a seat until 45 minutes before departure. Staff were rude and unhelpful when tried to ask why i didn't have a seat, No food on flight and generally poor service."
Pros: "Nothing. I'm happy that it wasn't worse."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Unhelpful ground staff. I missed my connecting flight due to bad weather and the attitude of the Air Canada staff was total indifference. I was told by the ground staff in Philadelphia that someone will be there to help us to quickly get to our connecting flight. Not only was no one there , but the quicker route to the gate closes after 11pm making us take the long way, therefore ensuring that we would miss the connecting flight. The two employees making new reservations took more than an hour to deal with 7 passengers. If you're economy class not only do they not pay for a hotel, they do not help in any way whatsoever other than handing you a card with a phone number to call to make your reservations (at a discounted price). After arriving at the hotel at 3 am in the morning, checking out at 1pm and spending 10hrs at the airport I finally got on my flight and spent another 14 hours in an uncomfortable seat before arriving in Delhi. Overall a terrible experience. I will never fly Air Canada again. You can only truly judge a business by seeing how it behaves when something goes wrong. Air Canada failed miserably!"
Cons: "was not able to board the flight and had to buy an alternate flight on Lufthansa, which was wonderful!"
Pros: "price was good, considering to china it's 13-1/2 hours"
Cons: "seems like the seats are narrower and tighter (fore & aft) then before"
Cons: "International flight over 6hrs, yet food not included on flight?"
Pros: "The service and they way the treat you is the best."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "mediocre service"
Cons: "constant delays"
Cons: "Plane had very little luggage space. I'm explorer card holder boarding should be priority I was in group 2. Food was not of good quality hence lot of people left it. 3. Sets were too narrow."
Pros: "14 hour flight. The legroom in economy seating on UA 82 is an absolute joke if you are 5 feet 6 inches or taller. I am 5' 11" Charging $200 premium for economy plus which on united is a few more inches of legroom unlike other carriers where it's a step closer to business class."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working for the duration of the flight (14 hours). Legroom in economy seating $200 premium for 4 more inches of legroom No automatic upgrade for silver star loyalty membership even though plenty of seats available."
Cons: "Food options weren't good."
Pros: "6 Feb from Newark to Delhi the Tv out of order no one is helping hand in the flight poor service. Only one thing is good that flight is well in time"
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "The entire experience at Newark was dreadful although the actual flight was fine."
Cons: "I was given misinformation about which gate I was supposed to be at and when I eventually got to the proper gate, the plane had left early. The United people that I spoke to in the terminal were very rude and disrespectful. The one woman that I spoke to was extremely nasty to me and it seemed like she was under the influence of something. This experience was totally unacceptable . Not everyone is comfortable flying, especially if they have not flown much. Airport personnel should take that into better consideration . Instead of flying next time, I probably should take the train!"
Pros: "Fast and easy boarding"
Cons: "No tv, no , no magazines"
Pros: "Everything on Kayak was fast and simple!:)"
Cons: "i booked my flight on Kayak and immediately been cancelled dunno why"
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily disorganized. Boarding announcement didn't specify which flight. Use of group lines was not explained ahead of actual boarding. Employees did not always use microphone to explain boarding. Very noisy group of travelers on board on night flight. Bathroom sink area too small."
Pros: "Staff were lovely"
Cons: "Food was Terrible, couldn't eat the veg option and the TVs kept freezing"
Pros: "We had nice flight even so the airplain was full."
Cons: "Not quite.little bit noisy."
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Cons: "we have been sitting in the cabin for over an hour while they have feuled the plain as they forgot to complete it"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, the crew was fantastic"
Cons: "Maybe a bit of food."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Economy Plus ... how nice to have some extra legroom on a long flight! LOTS of movie options for the 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Formallyncorrect behavior by crew"
Cons: "Very little understanding, empathy for exhausted and very thirsty passengers after significant delay. Water, refreshments served very late after take off. Crew just doesnt care, they do their work, that's it."
Pros: "flight is OK + in business class"
Cons: "terrible delay..."
Cons: "Crew members were not helpful."
Pros: "Not much, except the fact that it could have been worse."
Cons: "- Cheap quality food. And less in quantity. Less options. And they ran out of meal options even though I indicated them at the time of booking. - Not so clean - Sickness bags were used ones and had something in them. Clearly, they were not replaced. Toilets didn't have basic supplies like moisturizers. Not to mention they were super cramped. - Entertainment system was out of 60s. Small LCD and were of the smallest resolution and viewing angles - made watching anything akin to watching those cam rips floating all over internet. - Cramped leg room. And the premium seat didn't have any better room. Overall, one of the poorest flights I have ever flown on. Even Air India has much better planes and service."
Pros: "Crew professional"
Cons: "Unhappy that my luggage didn't make it"
Cons: "Grant flight , i flew with my daughter in business class the service was very good , food was great , missed watching direct tv as the Olympic Games was going on , but over top notch"
Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "There was a delay of 2 hours and 15 minutes that cause me to lose my bus and forced me to wait in the airport for 6 hours. Very bad experience"
Cons: "leg room and cabin temp was too high"
Pros: "11 hour delay announced iteratively in two hour increments. Worst flying experience to date. I may no longer fly united as a result."
Cons: "The 11 hour delay preceding my 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Ana flight attendants are the best!!! Excellent service cheeers"
Pros: "Economy plus room"
Cons: "The flight was not Swiss as I booked it. It was operated by United. It was over 45 minutes late boarding and over 2 hours late leaving. Tone of people were checking in at the gate and thus didn't pay extra for economy plus. There were loud and inappropriate passengers and the flight crew didn't do anything about them. I will avoid United at all costs the next time I travel...truly."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food was OK, the entertainment was left to be desired. The comfort was just ok, but to be expected"
Pros: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Cons: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Cons: "How about getting friendlier staff. The male flight attendants were insanely rude."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Dominican Republic on time."
Cons: "However the crew was horrible; there was no food provided. (Crackers j don't call food)."
Pros: "The plane and crew functioned well. From a purely technical stand-point the flight was a success, though it was delayed at Newark because the maintenance dept. took a good half hour to 45 minutes in transmitting its clearance to the captain."
Cons: "A lot of people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and dispositions were crammed into a comparatively small space. It was close and stuffy, very little space to stretch or move about when that was allowed. I'm not tall, but in terms of body mass I'm thicker and wider than many folks, but not obese, and my body thermostat tends to run on the warm side. So the flight was a bit of a physical and mental ordeal for me. The entertainment might have been great had my headphone port been operational. A previous passenger broke off the plug in the hole and the flight staff didn't have a pair of pliers on board to pull it out. Consequently, I was unable to listen to the media in-flight. Also, I couldn't recline my seat because the fussy older woman who sat behind me complained when I did, which made it difficult to snooze."
Pros: "They let us know ahead of time so we could arrive later to the airport, and did not have to wait in the airport."
Cons: "- They were very strict about carry-on luggage size, and insisted even after the flight being 3 hours late. My carry-on fit into their overhead compartment just fine. - No food was offered during the 6 hours flight. - Chairs in coach are uncomfortable for long flights (same as some other airlines I've flown with). Feet or head rest could be nice additions that don't require much additional space per passenger."
Cons: "Terrible experience in onboarding.. Later on i was made to sit in flight for 5 hours at mumbai airport"
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Cons: "Very stressful experience at counter check in. Airline representative didn't know the difference between the expiry date of a visa and that of my passport.. he just ran away with the passport to check and didn't get convinced and it took him long to return, with me just waiting and knowing nothing about where he went. Only the passport needs to be valid for three months after returning from the trip. Not the visa. He should know that. I got my boarding pass at the end, and he didn't apologize for the inconvenience or anything."
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."

Pros: "We have a list a cookie on the fly"
Cons: "The see were too cloused"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"
Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."
