Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Never was able to get on flight airport evacuated because of security breach. Mass confusion and unable to get back through security in time to catch flight still waiting to be rebooked."
Pros: "The crew were helpful"
Cons: "I had to pay luggage fees"
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and quick."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues. It didn't make a difference for me but many people missed their connection. However, the crew were all friendly and the Captain was very outgoing and communicative."
Cons: "Late flights are never good."
Pros: "On time and straightforward - unlike the previous night when an Air Traffic Control weather delay prevented a connection at Chicago (no fault of Lufthansa). So I stayed over in Arkansas at home as there was no offer of compensation (hotel or $) for the delay."
Cons: "narrow seat"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The shabbiness of the plane. The cramped space. The lack of overhead bin space. In fact, the space above my seat was full of suitcases of the crew. I had to find space somewhere else. If I had not been able to board early, I probably would not have found space."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for the conditions of the weather although it was clear and nice upon our arrival. Then the airlines did not deliver our luggage and we had to wait for it"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. I had an exit row so plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was a short flight so it didn't really néed food and didn't have entertainment. They hand out pretzel mix, not something I can have (celiac). Doesn't matter on a short 1 hour flight."
Pros: "The staffing was adequate, the service didn't take inordinate time!"
Pros: "I would like a direct flight from Krakow to Chicago. Lufthansa is a very good airline to Poland. Would definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "LH is a good airline to fly. The 747-8 is very cramped in economy but an Airbus gave a bit more room on the return."
Pros: "Nice, comfortable , spacious seats in premium economy. Nice attendants."
Cons: "temperature in the Premium Economy sections was freezing. Me and the person next to me wore 3 blankets each and were still shivering from the cold. The windows had ice on them (on the outside of course). Several people got up and wore their jackets and sweaters in addition to the blankets. In the Economy section the temperature was just fine (my husband sat there) and we had to alternate seats so that I don't freeze. He paid extra for me to have a more comfortable arrangement, but it ended up being way too cold. That did not happen on the way to Europe..."
Cons: "Didn't happen. Missed it and got re routed thru United."
Cons: "Broken chair would not stay reclined. TV screens need to be updated. The touch feature only works half the time. You have to keep tapping it. Temperature on the plane goes from freezing to hot. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Service from Chicago to Munich excellent! Air Dolomiti flight crew superb. All cockpit crews competent."

Pros: "Crew was great, movies we good. Plane was nice, drinks were readily available. After our missed connection the employee that got us our hotel was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Even if everything was on time we would have had a very hard time making our connection to Austin after customs and security in Chicago. The tickets never should have been sold that way."
Cons: "A disaster but was able to arrive 5 hours later to my destination. Better than a day late."
Pros: "The stewardess who served drinks and snacks were kind, fast, and efficient."

Cons: "No Tetris game"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "the leg room"
Pros: "Had a good selection of movies for the flight. Cabin crew was excellent, very friendly and happy. There was a medical emergency on the flight and I thought the cabin crew did a very nice job of remaining calm, requesting assistance from an on-board doctor and handling the situation overall. The food was good and served hot. The flight was on-time and really very few complaints. It was a nice trip."

Pros: "Boarding was very fast, crew was freindly and helpful ! Flight was on time"

Pros: "Friendly personal"
Pros: "Flights were on time. The aircraft was new and well equipped."

Cons: "Lufthansa's boarding process is horrific. No order at all. It was just a free for all. Everybody all at once trying to get in instead of calling peiple up by sections or rows."

Cons: "Lufthansa struck when I tried to fly from Kansas City to Napoli Italy on September 08, 2015. I was delayed four days. It took me 5 hours to rebook my flight. Then when returning to Kansas City on November 12, 2015, they had another strike. This time I was forced to purchase 3 days of motels and expenses. It took me 6 hours of making phone calls to rebook my flight. I kid $100 extra to choose my seats since I have PTSD from 24 months straight in Iraq. I panic when I feel confined. So I choose my seats carefully. And now on both trips, Lufthansa chose my seats for me. Just pisses me off all the way around."
Pros: "Boarding an overbooked flight is never easy, they did alright. The crew worked hard."
Cons: "The flight was actually Lufthansa, operated by united. I was surprised to see how old the plane was; no USB port."
Cons: "You went on strike and lefft us stranded"
Cons: "The "food" was absolutely horrible. Would rather they just charged a few bucks less and said, "hey, you better bring something to eat.""

Cons: "Connecting flight experience - Had to wait in a line for around 5 hours just to speak with a customer service representative at the London airport because my previous flight was delayed and I had missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Missed the plane from London Heathrow to Montreal dur to delays; as I missed the plane from London Heathrow to Nice for the same reasons. Don't sell tickets with too short correspondence times!"
Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"
Pros: "It was awesome how the windows are tinted and you can sometimes control it, and the new TV things on the back of every seat are truly amazing!"
Cons: "WHY is there no dairy free food?! I'm vegan but even for lactose intolerant people with more normal diets - there were absolutely no options! "meatballs and rice or pasta with a cheese sauce" - come ON! It's not that hard to make a vegetarian option that also happens to be dairy free!"
Cons: "Should have more room on international overseas flights"
Pros: "I liked arriving safely at my destination despite a delay due to atc strike. Thank you BA pilots for doing a great job. Not to mention politely letting passengers come view the flight deck during the delay to ease the boredom."
Cons: "When kindly asked a question by me, one of the staff didn't understand and instead kept insisting we didn't need a landing card (we did). Tried to rephrase the question and she persisted without trying to understand, rolling her eyes and swearing under her breath. Oh, and did I mention the part where we had to pay for our checked bags again? 75€ per bag. For me and my wife, that's the equivalent of a third ticket for our flight. May as well had our luggage fly next to us. So rude staff and exorbitant pricing for things that somehow weren't logged through third party. Cheers! (Sarcasm)"
Cons: "The plane was changed and no.one alerted us that our seats were relocated. Qhen we went to board the shuttle bus to the tarmac we were.pullednout of the.line and made to wait 25 minutes and ended up.being the last people to board. We arrived at the airport 2 hours in advance and cpuld have handled this in.advance if we had been notified properly. The BA employee checking us in didn't care that he pulled us and made us wait.... we were very unhappy as to how this was handled."
Cons: "My baggage was lost. This is ridiculous."
Pros: "Fortunately, BA got us on another flight--so our vacation plans weren't totally ruined!"
Cons: "Unfortunately we didn't receive notification that the originally scheduled flight no longer existed. We had paid a higher price to use the regional airport. When attempting to check-in online, there was no flight. The new flight involved a 2 hour drive to a different and added 2 weeks of parking charges that we wouldn't have otherwise had."
Pros: "Food. The chicken makhani was tasty and food overall was good"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft Tired crew Glitchy entertainment Slowest of boarding Super slow service Overall a disappointment"
Cons: "We missed our connection flight, to make things worst, we had to wait 3 1/2 hours standing in line just to speak a British airways staff because many of the desks were empty and half the desks were catering to first class and business class passengers"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly both on board and at check in."
Cons: "No beverage service for free. Even a tea. Paid for seat even when I checked in 24 hours before the flight no airline charges a fee once it's check in time for a regular seat and luggage was also more expensive at $45 usually $25. I also arrived early and wanted to get on the earlier flight where here was room but they did not accommodate for free would have been $500 more"
Pros: "The flight was on time - generally good"
Cons: "There was a cabin crew memeber by the name of indont knke who was incredibly rude. Offensive. Never in all the flights have I expirenced such treatment. British airways has lost a customer."
Pros: "Just the right amount of flight time and arriving early in the morning. Dreamliner makes the flight much easier. Always get either 3rd or 7th row seats with window bed and free access to isle."
Cons: "Usually starts late sometimes in London, and always on some remote gate."
Pros: "We had a ton of extra leg room"
Pros: "Only 40 people on the flight. Fast flight Nice to Heathrow. Got in 20 min early. That is what happens when the flight is almost empty. But then we had to wind our way from Terminal #5 to #2."
Cons: "No free food or drink. One guy on board could afford the 16£ champagne at lunch time. Must of had a craving."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled . And BA didn't manage it well for me . I am flying business . And have gold frequent flyer . And they offered cheap hotel by airport . Without even a shuttle to go to. I managed to go by myself . You have to stand on a line for an hour to get answers and another line with another 45 minutes to find solution. It's really bad ."
Pros: "Left and arrived early"
Cons: "Twice requested water that never came. On landing, the plane swerved and felt like it dipped to the right before straightening out. a little unnerving."
Pros: "Wonderfully professional crew. They made the flight very smooth and efficient, and I'm grateful for their hard work and high standards."
Pros: "AA has domestic US mkt. monopoly - they don't care to improve. People will not stop traveling so take them for suckers!!!"
Cons: "On flight service"
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed an hour, then 4 hours, then eventually cancelled. The last gate crew gave us no updates other than saying it was being delayed to a maintenance check. We eventually had to rebook our direct flight from ORD to CDG to then ORD to LHR and then to CDG. Because of this delay we missed most of our first day in Paris. The flight crew from LHR to CDG was very polite and friendly! I will be doing business with British Airways again in the near future. I will not be doing business with American Airlines anytime soon. Neither will my friends and family once they find out about my horrible experience with their lackluster customer service."
Cons: "Everything that involved American Airlines and my 7 hour flight delay."
Cons: "The air in the airplane was very cold and no blankets were provided. The aircraft seemed very old. Small movie screens on the ceiling, too far away to watch movie."
Cons: "The seats were very small."
Pros: "I'm alive and i eventually arrived at my final destination."
Cons: "50 characters is too few. the check in crew made me miss my flight."
Pros: "I bought this flight last minute to surprise a family member for his 60th birthday – a very long trip to make for just a weekend. British made it much more comfortable though. The food was actually tasty, I might even say, and the flight attendants were very pleasant. Lovely to see that they're still flying the 747 – those big birds are disappearing too fast."
Cons: "In economy, there are still no A/C power outlets! Come on!"
Pros: "but few are excellent. This one came close. The ticket agent for American Airlines at FCO/Roma was excellent. Altho this flight was 'billed' as a British Airways flight, it was operated by American. A little confusing when one thinks they are ticketing on a specific carrier only to be 'baited and switched' to another. That said, the equipment was in great condition, the video worked during the flight, the movie choices were very current. The food was airplane food. What more can one say."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised at being upgraded to business class. First time I ever slept horizontally on a flight! Food was great as well."
Cons: "The seats between me and my neighbor could have had more privacy i.e. a partition so I didn't have to disturb him by watching movies as he slept. Also, had to jump over sleeping people to go to the bathroom as the extended bed did not give much room to walk."
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Seated too far back"
Cons: "Over a 3 hour delay from original scheduled take off. A dinner voucher given too late in the delay. I had already eaten by 8:45pm.... Once boarded, the lights stayed on in the plane to accommodate a dinner service at 11:30pm. Way too late!!! The TV screen did not work properly."
Pros: "it was very nice . I will trying to stay with you for long time I'm business"
Cons: "There was no information to inform me that my flight was with American Airlines not British Airways.I hope that in the future the email will explain in detail that you will be flying with American Airlines."
Cons: "Had a few issues w online check in & no one to help. Had over $900 in pending transactions due to check in issues & no one to help, had to wait & hope they did not go thru...nor could I use on vacation I was going on"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. The plane was half full."
Cons: "Iberia makes you pay if you want to choose seats. Scarce food. Boarding was caotic."
Pros: "Good movies/entertainment"
Cons: "The food was not good. British Airways has good food, but this was Iberca (spelling?) which did Not have decent food. Also, we waited on the plane one hour before it finally took off.."
Pros: "The food, entertainment and crew were all very good. The plane was clean and water was readily available. I would choose BA over American next time I fly to Europe."
Cons: "I was switched from American to BA without being told prior to check in, the flight was delayed and no one wanted to expedite me and my 2 children getting off the flight in Chicago in order to make our connection which we ultimately missed. AA in Chicago switched me to United airlines and they charged me $75 for baggage. It was a series of unfortunate events, however I was out of pocket extra money due to a delay by British Airways."
Pros: "Left on time. Quick refreshment service."
Cons: "A little snack, like a cookie or similar would be great. Off course there was no entertainment on the short flight hence the rating."
Pros: "Nice Staff"
Pros: "Free upgrade to first class!! First class lounge, champagne upon boarding, lay down seats, peace and quiet!! Best flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "Flight Attendant were very nice and the service was great. Good selection of movies and entertainment. Our flight was delayed but they kept us very informed about boarding and when we were scheduled to depart."
Cons: "They ran out of pasta so there was no meal choice. Also the snack served before we landed was a chicken salad sandwich which no one in my party of 5 likes."
Pros: "The entertainment was so rigid. One did not have control over the content to watch"
Pros: "Good flight and good pilot ."
Cons: "Food was cheap and not taste good.I was not able to wach any movie on my flight due not working properly monitor ."
Pros: "Nothing.. Absolute joke!! Called me once in the a.m to say my flight had been switched to a different airline completely and delayed by 2 hours. Luckily i went to same airport same time as orgininally planned. Upon arriving i was told i would be getting om a flight to Philly instead 1.5 HOURS EARLIER than my orginal flight. Therefore i was rushed and had no iternary, check in or information from both Kayak.com or Ba,Aa. Will not book with you again!! American Airline flight staff were very ignorant, rushed and rude. Horrible first experience."
Pros: "Boarding and seat assignment process was very good. Hostess(es) and boarding crew were courteous."
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "A canceled flight with poor rebooking and then another 90 minutes delay. 47 hours of travel from Israel to Cleveland"
Pros: "They have badest customer service becouse i want extended my way back to chicago they did not talk to me as customer but every time call they hand off the phone more then 3 times i will not fly again with this plane"

Pros: "Entertainment system is great. Lots of new released movies."
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic mixing priority with the rest of passengers."

Cons: "Missed my flight while waiting on a wheelchair. The lady was rude and yelling at customers because she didn't have what she needed to do her job."
Pros: "The crew was nice and attentive. Leg room in the extra leg room seat was absolutely worth the extra fee."
Cons: "Connectors always seem to be delayed causing late boarding."
Pros: "The flight has enough leg room considering I'm 6ft. The entertainment was world class. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendant was slightly rude. The food was not so good. Every meal they had, had cheese in it."
Pros: "Nice crew and good selection of movies and music."
Cons: "Legroom is limited so it was hard to sleep."
Pros: "The very friendly and competent attendant. He deserves 5 stars, working alone in cramped conditions."
Cons: "Narrowness of aisle and seats. Minimal legroom and an average person had to bend to get in and out of seats."
Cons: "Plane had to turn around due to a malfunction. We were waiting with no updates for hours. No information, food or water were provided for kids or adults. Second plane took off 6 hours later, missed connection."
Pros: "The terminal at the Madrid airport has good shopping and dining options, but it's rather far and took ~25-30min to get there (including a short wait at the custom control."
Cons: "The check in took an awfully long time, the agent took 25-30 min to finalize our boarding pass."
Pros: "Surprisingly, Iberia provided the best experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and American Airlines"
Cons: "Boarding in Barajas was chaotic, boarding group number signs are not visible and gate audio could not be heard"

Pros: "Everything was pretty good"

Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 hours they changed the gate # My notifications in my phone were wrong overall poor management My seat was behind a couple with two children that cried and cried and screamed during the flight, couldnt sleep not even with the headphones helped listening to those children crying. Iberia offered to check in my luggage so i can pick it up at my final destination, but my bag never made it. Had to wait two days woth no clothes or work items i needed in my luggage. Overall a very bad experience with iberia"
Pros: "Everything was above what I experienced with other airlines."
Pros: "Overall everything was fine. AA airport crew in St. Louis was amazing helping me with a mistake in communication"
Cons: "My flight itinerary was changed I received no notification of this change. Lost my flight. AA airport crew saved the day"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly"
Pros: "I liked the food and the fact that we could have wine with dinner."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding procedure. There was an announcement for business class first, but then there wasn't enough said about the rest of the boarding i.e. "Group one can board now." Everyone was moving forward whether they were in group 1, 2, or 3. It was disorganized and not handled in a fair and efficient manner."
Cons: "My ticket said operated by British Airways so after an hour of standing in line - why there were two agents baffles me-- I was told to go stand in the Iberia one. I went to a kiosk and it didn't recognize my flight, so I finally got ahold of someone. The night before I was unable to check in because their site had crashed, so there was no way for me to know where to go."
Pros: "Take-off and landing was timely."
Cons: "Really disappointed with a lack of service. On the 8 hour flight we had one meal service within an hour of take-off and one within an hour of landing. No water or checks or anything for almost 6 straight hours, unlike my prior flight. I had to finally get up and ask for water. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Great selection of in flight movies, games, and music. The lunch/dinner was really good."
Cons: "Started boarding really late and 20min late taking off. Arrive almost and hour late. Breakfast was a dry roll with a slice of ham and cheese, half a kit Kat, and a yogurt."
Pros: "Very comfortable and friendly crew."
Cons: "They start boarding on time, but inexplicably kept people waiting on the jetbridge and did not allow anyone to actually pass through the airplane doors."
Pros: "Seats were not as bad/tiny as expected although they would not recline at all. We were served 2 meals on our overseas flight. That was also a surprise."
Cons: "Seats did not recline Could not hear boarding instructions."
Pros: "Special ordered meal was good, and seat was comfortable. Movies great!"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized - signage very misleading. Cabin was stuffy and warm until the plane started moving, and during the trip it did not cool off sufficiently. Would be better if they told passengers about when meals will be served. Stewardess poured old coffee in the basin while people were waiting to use the bathroom. Seat was splashed with coffee. Disposal for paper was stuffed. FYI Breakfast was inedible from ORD to Madrid."
Pros: "These were actually American Airline Flights 90 and 89. I really had a very good experience with American and though they tend to be more expensive they seem to be worth it in terms of comfort and amenities. I am willing to spend the extra money on Anerican if they continue to provide better than average service."
Cons: "I was wondering why I paid Iberia for an American Airline ticket. I wondered if this was some way to avoid paying taxes by funneling an US registered corporation fees through a Spanish registered corporation. It didn't make sense to me. I'm not a huge fan of legal games to avoid responsibilities. Still, very good flights."
Cons: "Such small seats, terrible food, cabin lights stayed on overnight!"
Pros: "The seating in business class was excellent and comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! And the ride was on time and had plenty of entertainment."
Cons: "My only complaint is that the seats were very tight in the economy class. We were packed like cattle. I know these were the "cheap" seats but for almost $1500 I would hope for a bit more comfort."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good, and I had no issues once on either plane."
Cons: "The layover in Madrid was too short. Because the first leg was slightly delayed, I missed the flight to my final destination. They ended up giving me a ticket which departed more than 12 hours after my arrival in Madrid (!). I had to go to the horrible inconvenience of wandering through the huge airport looking for their customer support desk, waiting in line, returning an hour or two later, and eventually getting myself a standby ticket on an earlier flight. I still ended up in the airport for about 4-6 hours. They provided a coupon for a free lunch, and there was a lounge to stay in, but for a transatlantic flight, adding an extra 4-6 hours was really bad."
Pros: "The fact I got home."
Cons: "There was around a 6 hour delay and we had very little info as to what was happening next."
Pros: "I made it to Chicago"
Cons: "This was American Airlines, not Iberia. I paid $120 to upgrade my seat to row 17 so I could get off the plane early and make my connection. I was ticketed to row 37 without any notice and was told it was not possible to change. All I can do it request a refund from American. My screen did not work and I could not watch anything on the flight."
Pros: "Promptness of flight. Comfortable seating. Excellent food and service."
Cons: "Personal entertainment unit did not work, making for a very long flight."
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking were the best things about this flight. The piloting was smooth too."
Cons: "Stewardesses were unfriendly and rude. Long flight, without individual entertainment on seats. Old plane, extremely cramped. The meal request made when booking the flight was not honored. Upon arrival to US customs, was told I was not on the passenger list (thus clearing customs was a bit touchy)."
Pros: "The television on the seatback."
Cons: "Paid $10 for WiFi that didn't work. Given standby seats despite arriving 2 hrs before flight. Service was not particularly friendly. Will try to avoid Iberia in the future."
Pros: "Everything was ver y nice."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The staff was absolutely rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "to hot"
Pros: "Food, Entertainment and Beverages were good. Attendants superior."
Cons: "Seating space in cabin was very cramped. When seats reclined, I had 2 inches from nose to seat. Could not pick seats in advance without a large fee. Unacceptable!"
Pros: "The food for vegetarian meals was horrible. They gave only salad and fruit dish. In a regular meal, they got other perks such as a cake, candy, yogurt, and salad with dressing and a better main meal. Vegetarians can eat cake, candy, and yogust. Also, salad dressing such as ranch or something would be nice. I don't think this flight understands what vegetarian truly means. It does not mean salad and fruit. We we also not given bread that comes with butter. Begetar I and eat bread. Also, for main meal for vegetarians pasta with marinara or patio sauce or a cheese pizza slice would have been nice. Please look at British airway and other airline vegetarian menus for Better sense."
Cons: "Food and lack of good movies especially international entertainment. There were literally 4 options and 3 were Spanish. What about movies in hindi language (indian) or Chinese."
Cons: "They made many people check their bag but once on the plan there was clearly plenty of room. I asked since I was flying international that I could take my bag, they said it'll be in Madrid, Then of course some how my bag never made it to Madrid and received it the next day."
Pros: "On time. Easy check-in. Was actually American Airines"
Cons: "Crying baby entire trip"
Pros: "The pilots were great and take off/landing were super smooth."
Cons: "The crew on the flight back to Chicago were a bit rude and abrasive. Didn't check on people once dinner was served."
Cons: "Three hours late."
Pros: "The flight was helpful to all. While the flight attendant forgot to get my entree when they ran out of my selection, she gave me her own entree and kept checking to make sure it was ok. Great movie selection and love that they served coffee throughout the entire flight."
Cons: "Connections to US destinations now require your checked in baggage to be processed before you can proceed to your connecting flights. The real problem is that this is no sign or communications describing this. Everyone is simply stopped in the corridor and told that they cannot proceed farther until their name comes up green on a monitor. Unfortunately the monitor switches displays so frequently that it is almost impossible to read. In addition to that it seems names do not always appear on the monitor unless you get your boarding pass scanned a the desk (this is not communicated to you unless you ask why your name is not on the monitor at all). People late for connecting flights (because of inbound flight delays) are required to wait without explanation sometimes needlessly if they don't have a checked bag. A nightmare if you're trying to make your connection. In addition once you've cleared that hurdle you need to go through security again (something we were unprepared for since we were already in the secure area. You then proceed to customs and then your connecting flight (if you haven't already missed it by then). Allow lots of time to get to your connecting flight, and ask to get you boarding pass scanned at that mysterious "checked bag" stop in the corridor."
Pros: "general state and size and comfort of the plane. Overall AC experience always good. The flight back to montreal, the service was exceptional!"
Cons: "only a dairy plate available, next time I need to specify no dairy entertainment -- too many ads and no previews for the movies so I have to start playing then stop and go through the entire same series of ads for the next one. the system just seems clunky and antiquated in today's tech age."
Cons: "Late flight No communication Had done pre register to sit with father. They changed his seat upon boarding."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "We landed on time."
Cons: "Flight attendant asked if I needed headphones and I said yes,her reply : I need a credit card"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that the airline served absolutely no food to passengers for such a long flight. Other airlines serve meals and beverages to their passengers on trans-Atlantic flights. I doubt I will fly Air Canada again for such a flight, due to the lack of interest and care provided the passengers."
Cons: "We were late getting into Chicago and I missed my connection to Albuquerque. I was scheduled to arrive at my destination at noon and because we were late, I didn't get home until almost midnight."
Pros: "It was not a full flight, and I was able to get up and move to an empty row and stretch out. The crew on this trip were AWESOME!!!!! All very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Staff 5 stars."
Cons: "getting off the airplane and no staff or better signs in Calgary to direct me to get my bag, and where to go with it. to customs drop off my bag. and the gate was poorly marked (granted there was construction) but no staff out of the gates in the area where I left from to ask for verification. LONG walk....................."
Pros: "Legroom of seat, on demand and complimentary entertainment system and stable connection of Wifi."
Cons: "Delay of the flight..."
Pros: "Why is it ok for flights to the US to always be 20-30 mins late ?"
Cons: "Delayed flight and tv screens were not working well"
Pros: "Was arbitrarily assigned a seat with extra legroom. No excessive turbulence; landing was smooth."
Cons: "I was among the last to board and had to place my carry-on under the seat in front because there was no room in the overhead bin. This kept me cramped the entire time despite the "preferred" seating. Soft drink servings were really skimpy."
Cons: "Splitting couples in different seats. The only way to seat together was to pay extra."
Cons: "Delayed, no food, waiting time to get out of plane too long"
Pros: "Quick flight, on time."
Cons: "The TV's in the back of the seats didn't turn on for this short flight."
Pros: "Crew was late on first leg delayed 3 hours than nobody to close the cabin door from outside ,missed connecting flight. Than did not have inventory in Chicago to out up in hotel had to pay out of my pocket and to this day can't get hold of customer service to get claim resolved. Sent through email and nothing. Even went down to my airport in Phoenix to speak and no help. Also lost bag as well. Which later found by united not air Canada. Unbelievable"
Cons: "crew seemed very busy and did not care of passenger request, I had asked mote than 5 times for a cup of water for my 7 years old daughter and nobody came back with it. I had to be more directive to get it finally."
Pros: "One Time. A very polite staff!"
Cons: "Finding an overhead luggage compartment was difficult. Some peoples luggage is over sized, and some stow two items."
Pros: "Got us home safely. Confortable seats."
Cons: "Left one piece of luggage behind. Had to wait for it to be sent on next flight."
Cons: "the gate changed FOUR times and passengers were never notified as there were no crew at the gate. The flight was delayed by two hours. there was no in-flight entertainment on board as it wasn't working. upon landing, we were forced to stay in the plane for an extra 30 minutes because the gate and crew were not ready. I was NOT impressed by this flight and am very upset with how things went. I expected better of AC and will not be flying again with them."
Cons: "AC373 on 07/23/16 - need I say more? Having an airline background and now the HR mgr of a very large hotel chain, I understand many things that are out of a companies control, ie: weather etc, but....never have I witnessed airline staff YELLING at passengers "it's not our fault and the agents need to leave so they don't go into overtime?" Yes, some passengers were difficult, but it's part of the industry. If you can't handle w/care and service - don't choose as a profession. Very unimpressed with AC's customer service, guest recovery - they made it seem like it was more of an inconvenience for them. Can't imagine "choosing" to fly AC again!"
Cons: "Air Canada did not have a workable emergency handling process. We waited for more than two hours in line to find out the agents can't assist us rebooking our flights. We ended up sleeping on the airport floor over night. They could not rebook us next day and we spent another day waiting. This is my first and last time flying on Air Canada !!!"
Pros: "Nothing, this was the worst flight ever. Delays, no communication, lacked proper updates, ground time,.."
Cons: "Everything, the plane left late. So my bags got lost. The person loading the bags, which I could see from my window, moved at an incredible slow pace and seemed like it took an hour till he was done loading the bags"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive to those on the flight."
Cons: "The idea to download an app before departure is ridiculous for movies. I toughed it out instead."
Pros: "More leg room and in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Stewardess spilled hot tea on my husband and did not apologize."
Pros: "Nice plane, decent seats."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Luggage didn't make it on to the aircraft in Toronto. Only 4 agents working the counters with a line of about 80+ or so people trying to check in with no supervisor present to make things better or get more counters open. Security didn't stamp boarding pass so had to go back to security check point to get boarding pass stamped before boarding. And it is no longer "random selection" when you get "randomly" selected for extra screening every time you travel from Toronto!!!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food is awful and the seats are the most uncomfortable I have ever encountered!"
Pros: "I sat with my husband by the window."
Cons: "First the plane had a delay for an hour, then additional two more hours of delay because we had to wait for another plane with passengers had to connect to the flight. Once we were boarded, we waited another hour for more passengers with luggage issues. After the plane took off, I was happy that the crews continued to offer us water, then I found out that there was no meal plan for the flight. I was hungry after all the unexpected wait plus the 4.5 hours flight to Chicago. I feel that the airline could offer passengers a meal after all the unexpected delays."
Pros: "You want comfort? this is the way to go."
Cons: "Entertainment on short flight was limited."
Pros: "The pilots always announced when to expect turbulence and apologized ahead of time; turbulence really wasn't that bad either. In-flight entertainment never cut out, though the options were limited."
Cons: "The intercom that the flight attendant used to speak to the passengers was very quiet, so it was hard to hear what he was saying every time. However, the pilots' intercom was very clear."
Pros: "Very friendly, helpful staff. I was traveling alone with 3 children and they placed us with extra seats."
Cons: "No individual screens on in international flight with 3 kids. Luckily they had iPads to rent."
Pros: "Newer plane, tv monitors in coach class, on time departure"
Cons: "if you get in a que, then the computer goes down , your dead, AC line will be 1.5 hours to get to rebook. then you have 2 day to stay before you can get out. if you decide to go on delta because staying 2 day in hotel is more expensive than buying a new ticket ac will not refund you. Air Canada is the least flexible airline in the world relative to refund."
Cons: "after wetting half hour in the line they said i didn't pay for my ticket and tell me to parches a new ticket"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "Run by united but more efficient than a recent Air Canada flight."
Cons: "3 hour flight and had to pay extra for entertainment. Only two biscuits given for food. Cramped seats for anyone 6ft tall."
Cons: "I could not check in online for both legs of the flight. Stuck in the middle seat even though I was ready to check in 24 hrs prior."
Pros: "Overall it was good. The crew was very friendly. The plane was small and it was a short flight, so everything else was average as expected for a short flight."
Pros: "The crew was good and the in-flight entertainment options were decent."
Cons: "Plane took forever to take off because we were waiting for people late from layovers. Got one drink, no snacks, nothing else. Plane arrived over an hour late."
Cons: "It was a United flight and everywhere it said it was Air Canada instead of United. Hopping terminals and running through them last minute is not fun. To top it off the flight got delayed a ton of times and messed up our schedules completely."
Cons: "delayed 2-3 hours in Vancouver so missed connection, had to rent a vehicle to get home. Everytime, United into O'Hare… never again!"
Pros: "Cancellation came with a new flight and coucher for sleeping overnight at a O'Hare Hotel which was very well organized and went smoothly. Staff at ORD were waiting for us and very helpful."
Cons: "Was unable to check in my Air Canada flight the day before to find out the next day, at the airport that the flight was cancelled. The Air Canada flight was operated by United and no such information was provided in my reservation on Kayak or at the Air Canada counter in SAN airport, so I had to guess that another Star Alliance member would be taking over."
Cons: "Gate was changed after check-in, but lack of announcements nearly caused my 84 year old mother to miss her flight, which was changed from gate 80 to 62."
Pros: "Great first experience flying."
Pros: "Still able to make it there on the day I needed to be there"
Cons: "Had to be rerouted"
Pros: "The staff was very polite and kind"
Cons: "The ten hour delay"
Pros: "All crew on borad were so polite and professional. Great service and it was a very pleasant flight though our flight got cancelled and we all had to flew back to Toronto instead of landing to Chicago."
Pros: "Excellent in-flight services."
Cons: "I have no complain"
Pros: "Plane departed early and arrived early. No incident."
Cons: "Alitalia chose to offer no-servce flights. Not a cup of water. Passengers need to go to the back of the plane, where the attendants sit together and chat the whole flight, and ask for a (tiny) bottle. What they do during boarding is jump on anyone who would dare to place a piece of garment in the overhead bins. It comes through as a fad..."
Pros: "I liked nothing, and am sorry for the time i waist it with Alitalia. Especially after not letting me use the lounge even thought I am an elite plus with skyteam and Alitalia is one of the alliance member."
Cons: "Applying the rules and respect my skyteam elite plus membership."
Cons: "Crew didn’t show up. They later said it that they weren’t picked up. Weak excuse since they’re probably near the airport/airline could have informed us/flight could have been delayed properly. Everyone was there, plane was locked and departure delayed by some 36-40 minutes"
Pros: "Ground staff"
Cons: "More baggage checking counters."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff. That happens but very poor communication about the delay."
Cons: "they must work on quality and price"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "People next to me"
Cons: "Seat, food , no fee for bag, and service"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 1 hour waiting for a crew member to show up. This caused me to miss my flight to the US at DeGaulle"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Alitalia is the worst airline company"
Pros: "All was well but missed my bag and one opened"
Cons: "Missed my baggage and one was opened and wrapping removed"
Cons: "There isn't enough space on plane to enjoy the flight, it was more of, you have to go from one location to another. If it was more than 2 hours, I would have hated it even more."
Pros: "All flights on time"
Cons: "We were traveling with my 94-year-old grandfather who needed wheelchair assistance. And it took the 4th person I asked to get any assistance. The very first Alitalia person I tried to speak to was the very worst. Though her job was to check people in, she said she couldn't help me and to go to another counter. When I asked if she could please at least make a call to get a wheelchair (my grandfather was at the airport entry and couldn't walk) she made a terrible face, threw the papers on her desk around and said I had to go to another counter. When I went to the counter she pointed at, I was told again I would have to go to another counter. No offense to dog owners, but the animals that were traveling received better assistance."
Pros: "Cheap fares and direct flight"
Cons: "Entertainment very poor. Would recommend a kruger selection of movies and preferably to be available to watch once we are on the plane waiting for take off. Economy class space limited ."
Pros: "todo estuvo muy bien!!!"
Cons: "el desayuno o como quieran llamarlo es muy pobre"
Pros: "All good.."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Little hot on the plane"
Pros: "The flight itself from NYC was great, the connection flight was great."
Cons: "The worst boarding process I ever seen! The airport people and crew didn’t tell people what’s going on, there was a uhh delay. Big lines of people just standing and waiting. The flight took off 45 min late!!"
Pros: "The fact that I had more legroom than I expected was surprising."
Cons: "The staff were super rude, forgot my food TWICE. Boarding took ages, and once inside the plane, they took a long time to get on the runway. Food was terrible, the bread was hard as rock. IFE has some relatively new films, but the screen is very small. The screen has terrible quality, and honestly makes the flight excruciatingly boring if you don’t have other sources of entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food on the Tel Aviv to Rome flight"
Pros: "Ok ok."
Cons: "Our bag out of luggage was missing and more than 24 hours there was no action. We were left helpless as due to Easter everything was closed and could not arrange any alternative."
Pros: "legroom and quick"
Pros: "Everything was great except that our srtoller was nos given back in our stop in Rome and we needed it badly."
Cons: "Everything was great except that our srtoller was nos given back in our stop in Rome and we needed it badly."
Cons: "SHOULD HAVE BEEN WARNED THAT THE IMMIGRATION TOOK LONGER THAN EXPECTED BECAUSE OF THE QUEUE."
Pros: "Boarding was on time for all my flights."
Cons: "KLM switched online check in to Alitalia literally right at checking time. It was extremely unnerving, and required much more time, as I did not have an Alitalia account."
Pros: "We arrived in Dusseldorf, there was a wheelchair waiting thanks to AirBerlin, and the rest of the trip was excellent."
Cons: "Check in was chaos. A different Alitalia flight had been cancelled so there were mobs at the check in at 4 a.m. waiting for the Alitalia personnel to appear--AirBerlin was open and staffed, but Alitalia was at least 1/2 hour late and all check in had to take place in person at the counter and no counter was specified for our flight. I had requested wheelchair assistance (I'm 80 years old with back problems), but there was none available."
Cons: "Although reservations for our return flight from Rome to Boston were made 5 months ago, we were bumped from our flight, not advised in advance, and missed several important work engagements. The management at the Alitalia desk at the airport was not up to the task of reassigning everyone. Understaffed and under equipped (staff was unable to get online to reschedule and re-issue new boarding passes) We are senior travelers (75 and 80 years old) and were forced to stand in lines for 3 hours We're headed to the airport now, the next day, and I am dreading the experience."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No free food, even drinks need to be paid."
Cons: "Late boarding Rude crew Bad service Lost my luggage"
Pros: "I didn't"
Cons: "The flight was only supposed to take two hours but instead they sat around for another hour and a half or so and then there was so little leg room that my knees even if I was all the way against the back wall showed into the seat in front of me so bad that I had to stick them out in the aisle and said crooked and then my seat would not latch"
Cons: "One of the entertainment systems was in disrepair. The headphone jack was jammed and the USB charge port was broken."
Cons: "The flight was operated by Alitalia, so my bad review is about it: 1- they made us pay 75 euro for 4 extra kg on the luggage; 2- once on board we had to wait 45 minutes before leaving the airport; 3- there was no entertainment on the plane which looked like a very old plane; 4- they served us a tasteless sandwich and muffin(MEA flight serves a full meal) 5- the choice of drinks was poor: water, Coca cola, tea or coffee, no juices or alcohol; 6- we asked for water 3 times and the flight attendant never came back; Being an expensive flight I was expecting something more than a low coast flight company. VERY DISAPPOINTED."
Pros: "Once arriving in Rome, the agents were very helpful in getting us a hotel for the night. However, at that point, it was very late and we had to wait for everyone else to be accommodated as well. It would have been a better process to have allowed passengers more information prior to arriving in Rome at 22:00"
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight to Palermo. For hours before, while we were stuck at Heathrow, we had little to no information as to what would happen once we landed in Rome. We were traveling with two small children and this was extremely frustrating and tiring."
Pros: "Entertainment choices, boarding efficiency, helpful staff"
Cons: "Delayed departure - then even more delayed arrival - stuck on tarmac. First row of extra leg seats are extra narrow to account for entertainment system."
Cons: "HORRIBLE seats. So unbelievably uncomfortable"
Cons: "They could offer some coffee."
Pros: "Not too much. Standard flight. They had ok wine I guess."
Cons: "Ancient planes. Had to use proprietary headphones, I thought they stopped doing that. No USB. Screens seemed 20 years old. It's 2017!"
Cons: "Plane was late, so I had to rush for a connection in Rome."
Cons: "Missed a day of work"
Pros: "I liked receiving my luggage 2 days after I got to Rome suitcases were lost by air Berlin last time I'll ever fly air Berlin the seats are crammed horrible horrible experience never again"
Cons: "I had to book a separate $1500 flight"
Pros: "Love the friendly crew and the great food and service"
Cons: "Purchased ticket through Kiwi. Never will use them again. EVER! The "E ticket" didnt have: Terminal Carrier i.e. Air Italia The flight numbers Any record or reference number the airline(s) could use. Could not purchase a bag and had to pay extra at the airport Whilst clearing security Air France pulled me out of line found me to be 1 killo over, and air Italia demanded another 75 euros. Not the first time this has happened. I pointed out numerous french people passing with very heavy bags and indeed helped several women lift 20+ kilo bags on the flight into the overhead bin on this flight and others. They all were french and never were they stopped with their heavy bags "Oh" the "security" guy said "I thought you were English!" "Not so" said this Irishman "And you are racist". To no avail and all part of Air france's business plan to charge the dreaded Estranger extra. Never again will I fly Air France. Id rather take a train, drive or even walk. Very bad experience start to finish and yes so very Air France; well Air Italia too.."
Cons: "The boarding was chaos in both Munich and Rome. Apparently Al Italia had instituted a new computer system and the workers did not know how to use it. I spent hours on line getting a boarding pass in Munich, and then again another in Rome (in Munich no one was given boarding passes for connecting flights). I spend hours again in lines to get a boarding pass for a flight to Palermo, missing my connection and only getting a much later flight to Palermo. It was utter confusion. Shame on Al Italia."
Pros: "Landing in Rome. Hotel after missing connection flight."
Cons: "Delay of 2 HOURES cosed missing a connection flight to Tel Aviv. Next flighr to Tel aviv 36 houres later !!!"
Cons: "LUCKY IT WAS A SHORT FIGHT!"
