Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."

Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "Very orderly."
Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "The stupid boarding pricesd"
Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."

Pros: "Excellent very good good"

Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Expected a two hour layover, but due to delay I ended up waiting more that 14 hours at the terminal."
Cons: "For some reason I had to get my seat at the gate and waste extra time for it"
Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."
Cons: "Long lines trying to resolve delayed flights. Ni weather issues reported."
Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Window seat"
Pros: "Short flight 21 min"
Cons: "Held on plane in Kzo awaiting clearance from Detroit . Kzo airport was great, clean, friendly."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."
Pros: "Even though we had to tax over to the de-Icing pad before we could take off from Philadelphia, we were still in the air by our original departure time. Our flight was accompanied by tail winds that got us to Detroit early giving me plenty of time to make my connecting flight."
Pros: "We were a head of time for both flight! I never experienced this with delta. It used to be always late. I stopped flying with them for that reason. I was gladly surprised."
Cons: "The seat are very small. We were not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Actually, the entertainment was non-existent. It's a fairly short flight on a commuter jet, so there is no entertainment system."
Pros: "Very friendly and curtious crew made the flight very pleasant"
Pros: "The staff was helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a crew member no show and eventually cancelled. I was unable to go to Iowa to see my family."
Cons: "Sat in airport for 8 hours while flight was delayed an hour at a time only to be cancelled after 8 hours of waiting. Had to rent car and drive 10 hours to destination"
Pros: "The service on the plane was very nice, the woman flight attendant was great. The drinks definitely helped get my through the deafening flight."
Cons: "I was not aware of how loud the last row on the plane would be, for two hours we had to listen to the roar of a jet engine, it would be nice if there was ear plugs we could be provided for this. Or if we were made aware of this before the flight started."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived about 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Boarded on time, service was pleasant."
Cons: "Departed a few minutes late due to need for mechanical attention."
Cons: "Food was a little underwhelming for First Class."
Cons: "First flight delayed, missed flight to SF, stuck in frankfurt. A hotel is not adequate compensation"
Pros: "The incoming pilot to Nice parked at the wrong gate and apparently, once parked, it could not be moved. So the airport had to scramble buses which made the flight depart more than an hour late. We had a 50-minute layover and Lufthansa did not hold the plane. So we got home a day late."
Cons: "They could have left Nice on time, or held the plane for us in Munich."
Cons: "Never happened,missed flight"
Pros: "Everything was fine, the crew was excellent. We liked that Lufthansa did provide the special meals (that we requested on-line) for our family."
Cons: "The boarding was rather slow (but not extremely so). Calling boarding by row ranges, like some other airlines do, may speed it up or make it more comfortable. The seats were not too comfortable, but within what one can expect for an Economy class --- and not too bad, either."
Cons: "There was an issue on the bus to take us to the teminal cuz a passenger took another's passenger's backpack which looked exactly the same but they made us wait on the bus til the mix up was settled. A lot of the passengers got frustrated cuz we had connecting flights and the workers by the plane didn't care including the bus driver. We finally went but we almost missed our flight .we had to literally run to the gate to make it."
Pros: "The crew were helpful"
Cons: "I had to pay luggage fees"
Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."
Pros: "Flight was on time and flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Leaving Germany, I expected better tasting food. Our food leaving the USA and going to Germany tasted much better."
Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"
Pros: "Wi-Fi and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" cramped in economy"
Pros: "Great service. Comfortable business class seats."
Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"
Cons: "Reclining seats. Great for you but not the person behind you. It puts the screen about 10 inches from your face when the person in front of you reclines and it's impossible to lean forward and rest your head on the tray."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant, bathrooms clean. Despite a late departure we arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a bit warm on both flights from DTW to FRA and the return. I usually dress for flying assuming it will be chilly but it was the opposite, a bit warm. No individual air control either. the last meal served was a ham & cheese sandwich which tasted odd..I couldn't eat it, other meals were fine."
Pros: "Lucked out. Flight was quite empty. Travel was comfortable and easy. A smooth ride all along."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were excellent and the service never stopped. The plane was comfortable and the bathroom clean. There was some turbulence, but that is not the fault of the airline, nor did it really bother me."
Cons: "There was a snarky attendant, but not all of them were that way."
Cons: "Luggage lost"
Cons: "Lack of drinking water fountains at the FRA airport"

Pros: "Efficient boarding process"
Cons: "Only got a cookie for food"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."
Cons: "Boarding and departure was late."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Everything was fine even though the plane was late,"
Pros: "Great Service Great Stuff will continue with LH in the future"
Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"
Pros: "Food and complimentary drinks (including wine)."

Pros: "Great service from a super crew. On time."
Pros: "Flight and land was smooth. I like Lufthansa, because it is safe."
Cons: "My trip was 8 hrs, we get water or juice only 5 times and very small cup 100ml, not enough"
Pros: "No vegetatarion food on return flight"
Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"
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: "There was very little if anything positive"
Cons: "Delays led to missing connecting flight. Delays could've been avoided. Staff were unhelpful, noncommunicative and poorly informed."
Pros: "ON TIME."
Cons: "I selected seats and when I got on the plane I was moved twice. The seats were very small and uncomfortable. The food was bad."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was amazing. The food was fantastic, the service was better, and my comfort was always at maximum. This company makes all American domestic companies pale in comparison."
Pros: "When my traveling companion suddenly became acutely ill the flight attendants stepped right in and assisted him to an available Business Class area where he could be cleaned up (including changing his soiled shirt to a clean one from the 1st Class supplies) and made more comfortable. They checked on him frequently during the rest of the flight and made arrangements to get us assistance off the airplane in Detroit and through the crowded airport in record time in order to get him to the ER as soon as possible. We are so grateful to them for their caring help during what could have been a very embarrassing situation."
Cons: "We had no complaints or suggestions. Flying with Lufthansa was a wonderful experience during a difficult situation."
Pros: "Flight cancelled see above"
Pros: "The crew was very assertive, plenty of snacks and drinks, good food. Flight went on smooth and the captain lender splendidly. Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg space, entertainment had numerous choices. Would recommend to friends."
Cons: "Everything's was fine"
Pros: "The staff was quite good and they knew how to treat passengers well."
Cons: "Not really anything to complain about."
Pros: "My flight from Frankfurt to Detroit on Lufthansa was very enjoyable. The crew were great. They were very friendly and attentive to the passengers. I would choose to fly on Lufthansa again in the future."
Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."
Pros: "The flight was on-time and very smooth. Check-in and baggage drop were incredibly easy. I also liked the self-scanning of the boarding passes to board. Great number of options on personal entertainment screen - including movies, tv shows, and music that people actually want to listen to! Great flight overall."
Pros: "Great staff and thoughtful professional attention makes travel better!"
Cons: "There were some spaces and I might have done a modest upgrade but not offered when asked at check in."
Cons: "My connecting flight was very close in time and even when I told a stewardess while I was exiting the plane, she made no effort to get me any help to arrive at my next gate faster. This resulted in my having to run to my gate after waiting on the long line at customs and I barely made my flight. Had I not been as physically able, I would have missed my flight even at my normal fast-walking pace. This should not have occurred- I should not have to run to my gate from one flight to another especially when I raised this concern to an employee of Lufthansa as well as a customs officer."
Pros: "Service by crew on board."
Cons: "Delay after boarding flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and comfortable"
Cons: "It was extremely disorganized at the check-in counter. There was just a mass of people that eventually led to some lines but it wasn't even clear where the line started. In addition, the boarding itself was a mess and the plane departed late. There were no self check-in kiosks with baggage drops so people could have another option besides going to a counter and there wasn't anyone monitoring the line to make sure it was an orderly process. We were early so there wasn't an issue with waiting per se but rather with the process itself."
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable seats on plane. Stayed on time."
Cons: "Only the lunch wasn't good, there was only pasta at the moment"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."

Pros: "ON time Flight"
Pros: "The food was great—snacks, meals, drinks—all complimentary!"
Pros: "Staff was great. Good experience for our first overseas flight"
Cons: "My bags were delayed, and ten days later, I still don't have them."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very nice."
Pros: "Fast check in. Boarding orderly."
Cons: "AC on the airplane. It was extremely hot. We have to use the magazine to fan ourselves...."
Cons: "Organisation at Tegal airport, was a free for all to board the plane."
Cons: "Delays in the food service occurred because the credit card machine stopped working. Rather than stop the purchase food options they continued which meant they could only reach row 16 by the time our flight began its descent. Since were in row 19, we were not offered any food or water, during lunch."
Cons: "The problem was the airline losing our luggage."
Pros: "I like how the staff treated me."
Cons: "Unfortunately my seat was the middle one and it was really uncomfortable. But it was my fault that forgot to check-in :)"
Pros: "Food ok and crew nice."
Cons: "The flight was bumpy for 5 hours from USA to England scary ride"
Pros: "Nice folks"
Cons: "Problem with recording my frequent flyer number (as usual but that is probably BA's fault)"
Pros: "Despite having a delay in Denver, we were able to arrive on time. The crew was very friendly in greeting us as we boarded the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was hampered by too many people putting too much carry on luggage in the overhead bins. Many put things in the overhead bins that could have been put under the seat. It didn’t seem like the crew was paying too much attention to this. In general the crew was pleasant, but there didn’t appear to be much sincerity in the pleasantries."
Cons: "You get onboard and they do not even serve you water!!! You have to pay for even water!!! I was thirsty during the 2 hour long flight and really PISSED!!!"
Pros: "Very special kind flight attendant went out of her way to help us catch our connecting flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "No drink, fixed seat, am senior and no assistance at all."
Pros: "Everything it was painless"
Cons: "Gate personnel were inattentive and wheelchair transport was rude"
Cons: "my flight was cancelled"
Cons: "BA on line does not always respond"
Pros: "On time and smooth flight."
Cons: "We were packed in like sardines. There were no plugs to charge devices."
Pros: "Boarding was different than told. All boarded from front. Routine short flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats (Upgraded) Food was good quality and tasty Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Did not transfer our suitcases on-time to the connecting flight, and we had to go back to the destination airport the next day! Crew during the long flight from LA to London never, not even once, brought beverages or water in between meals! They made sure to do minimum that is necessary! That's a shame BA I flew with United few months back from Washington to Munich and crew were amazing and went above and beyond to serve passengers"
Cons: "Boring entertainment selections"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Less spaces and food and drinks for purchase. Really bad!"
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!"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "No snacks on a two hours flight? Have to pay extra???"
Pros: "I was amazed by the flavour and quality of the food. As well, having complimentary drinks available anddd to the experience that made it special. I felt that I was treated as a valued client rather than just a person to fill the seat. That you to British Airways for making my travels a high quality experience."
Cons: "We were mislead on gate assigment which impacted our whole experience. There was no entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
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: "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: "Great flight"
Pros: "Food, movies, crew were all great"
Cons: "Sitting with not enough leg room for 12 hours. I am 6 ft tall, and I made it work mostly, but needed a neck pillow that I brought to fall asleep, and it wasn't for very long. Just feeling the pinch!"
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."
Pros: "Large, generous leather style seats. Snack was a half-baked buttered up ham & cheese croissant (don't expect french quality, it's sustenance only) Crew was wonderful with fixing us a tea & shortbread when we asked for it while on ground"
Cons: "Heavy fog on London pushed my Nice-Heathrow 2h back. They knew about it yet, let us board the plane more or less on time. Once on board they told us we'd stay on ground for 2h, and if anybody wanted to other plans on this new years eve, they had 5minute to get off the plane. I had only 2h transfer time in Heathrow and asked if I got off if I could be rerouted through another hub. The stewardess had no clue, but said this is usually dealt from London and they have more options there, so I staid in plane. It would have been better to know that in terminal where wifi was available and we could have BA customer service give us individual attention."
Pros: "The food was acceptable and served in a timely, efficient way. The entertainment options were very good and the system easy to use."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable due to being so narrow and also very little leg room. I was in the second seat in a 4-seat row and had difficulty getting through the space to seat myself. I'm a person of average size. On a six hour flight this becomes very irritating."
Pros: "Friendly crew! Comfortable seats...great food"
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane. No air jets available. Steward said the plane was having an issue with air quality. I have asthma and warm conditions with out air flow made this flight very uncomfortable for me. There was a passenger in from of me that was getting overheated and nauseous."
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: "Nice Airport and BA representatives at Nice Airport very friendly."
Cons: "Upon arrival in London BA did not have a representative to direct us our connecting flight."
Pros: "flight attendants were exceptional!"
Pros: "Don't usually have a chance to fly BA in the USA. The flight crew were professional, courteous, and very friendly. They ALL looked so polished and well groomed. Some USA carriers should take a look. It makes a difference. Even their donning hats and putting on suit jackets on landing made an impression on me. Thanks British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing Wonderful flight"
Cons: "Old airplane, no movie selections, grumpy service, small seats."
Pros: "the entertainment and food was good"
Cons: "our flight attendants were mostly absent -- the other side of the aisle had much more attentive attendants"
Pros: "Flight delayed and changing of gates"
Cons: "To far from one gate to the other, you need a shuttle"
Pros: "good food and support for wheelchair but have to wait longer then expected"
Cons: "my beg missing and take 3 hr at airport just to find out that i am not getting my beg and its 4 days now no reply or update from anyone....."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Great food. Good entertainment system. I sat in premium economy so can't say what the economy section was like."
Cons: "Plane was damn cold!"
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Pros: "great crew."
Cons: "no wifi on a transatlantic 12 hour flight!!!!"
Cons: "Rather than notify the passengers that our flight would be delayed prior to our arrival at the airport, we waited at the gate for several hours."

Pros: "The entertainment on board was nice because there were a variety of movies and things to do."

Cons: "The flight was an hour late!"
Pros: "Plane was on time and manned appropriately with a single crew member. Gate checked bag was handled with care."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "There were several delays before boarding. The communication was poor, the announcements inaudible and the terminal chaotic. The flight had a lot of young children on it. There was an incredible amount of crying and screaming in the last half hour of the flight."
Cons: "my flight was late leaving midland and therefore I missed my flight from houston to toronto NO one at the Houston United airport counters would help me I stood in line at customer service for an hour and a half just so they could tell me to go see some one at the Air Canada to confirm my rebook and that my flight was delayed an hour anyway and I probably could have made it!!"
Cons: "The business class layout on the Boeing 787 was confusing. The seat was narrow and uncomfortable for my 250lb frame and 6 foot 2inch height. There was now head rest for my neck. The air circulation in the center of the aircraft was poor and too hot while my wife across the aisle had good circulation and temperature. The leg room was inadequate as well. Is this Boeing 787 specific? The selections on the movie list were too small."
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Pros: "I didn't get any food or entertainment.. however the staff were very professional, polite, and helpful when needed to be."
Cons: "Bag damaged. No one to report damage to"
Pros: "Crew was fine, food was fine, entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, which prompted the agent in Beijing to change my connection in Vancouver to 7 hours later!!! However, when I arrived in Vancouver, I made it to the gate of my original connection hoping to get on anyway, but because the agent in Beijing changed my connection before I left, my original connection was full and I was stuck in Vancouver airport for 5-6 hours. Complete waste of my time and completely unnecessary."
Pros: "waiting on the plane for hours after we arrived to LA wasn't to great. Also it was frustrating to watch the plane get delayed over and over again, the food wasn't too good, the seats felt like cardboard and it was too packed in the plane...but other then that, it was spectacular"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after we already were sitting in the plane for 1.5 hour."
Cons: "Air canada canceled the direct flight from Calgary to LA as I booked. The replaced flight is indirect one via veccover. I end up needed get up in dark driving from lake Louise to Calgary to catch the flight and got home after 13 hours in total. The reason of the calculation was no enough customer and there was no compensation being offered."
Cons: "The last leg of our entire trip, and it was late. We left about 1.5 hours late and they had trouble getting the gate to the plane when we landed. A long trip home was made even longer. I was very surprised that there were so many issues with timeliness on AC flights. In our outbound to Athens, two of the three flights left late, and they had to rebook part of our trip to accommodate. And the return trip was more of the same. I expected AC to be world-class and it was more like a regional airline in terms of performance."
Pros: "Movies were nice. The flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants can be nicer. It seems they were bothered when we ask sth. And it took me half an hour to get the entertainment system to work on my computer ( the plug in wouldn't work) but the crew was nice and let me use an iPad for free. But I think people shouldn't have to pay for entertainment on such a long flight when you can fly other planes that don't make you pay."
Pros: "I survived the flight"
Cons: "The conditions of the plane were terrible. The plane was old and very cramped with sagging seats so close together I could feel the persons knees behind me. There were no screens for entertainment. The food was horrible, and there was no option to buy anything better. The flight attendants were slow with service and even slower to pick up trash. The 2 bathrooms in the back of the plane were dirty and old."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late after we already had a 5 hour lay-over. Waiting area quite small for so many flights to US .Felt like the ugly step-sisters."
Pros: "Little turbulence, smooth flight"
Cons: "In flight entertainmento, had to rent a device to watch a movie on an 8 and 1/2 hour flight, there was no tv's on seat backs."
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."
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....................."
Cons: "Very rude staff, my flight from Dublin was delayed for three hours on the runway why they fix the leak for the restrooms. Once we landed I had to clear customs in Canada and get to the new flight. They told me when I finally had to make through the airport and through customs that I need to manage my time better and understand and give myself plenty of time to make the flight.. REALLY??? It wasn't my fault that their crappy plane wasn't working right wasn't my fault we were delayed but I need to manage my time better I think they fell and bumped their head!!"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you rented one of their iPads"
Cons: "I will never fly Air Canada between Detroit and Toronto again. Both ways the crew looked exhausted and like they were rather be anyplace but working our flight. Both times they took our carry ons without giving us a choice. For our flight out this was a stressful nuisance because we had to catch a connecting overseas flight. This involved my husband and son going to baggage claim and then having to go back through customs and TSA. The whole point of carry ons is to avoid this. Luckily we didn't miss our international flight but not a good way to begin a trip of a lifetime. Flight was completely uncomfortable and it seemed like no one cared. Should have driven"
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "The gate area was horribly crowded, extremely chaotic and hot."
Cons: "Splitting couples in different seats. The only way to seat together was to pay extra."
Cons: "Captain's announcements were inaudible from the wing seats. Seats very cramped - I'm only 5 feet tall and barely had room for my legs. Also, unable to see safety demonstration as the seat backs were too tall for a short person to see anything but the back of the seat in front of me."
Pros: "flight attendant seemed very kind. I sooo appreciated that the landing was so incredibly smooth. I get motion sick sometimes so that was very nice."
Cons: "delayed 30 minutes waiting for the catering truck. Also, it was FREEZING in that plane, I thought my ankles were going to fall off."
Pros: "Crew was friendly helpful."
Cons: "Problem w with bathroom not working preflight."
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: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Late. Again. Each of my flights with Air Canada has been late."
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: "Not much"
Cons: "Food is awful and the seats are the most uncomfortable I have ever encountered!"
Cons: "Crazy boarding process. Had flight attendants jacket left hanging on my seat that they didn't come get until we began to taxi. No entertainment systems for a 7 hour transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew very helpful. Not as loud as the last flight."
Cons: "So many people crammed into a small space. Needed more leg room and shoulder room."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight. I have zero faith in Air Canada."
Cons: "The rest room did not work"
Pros: "Good movie selection."
Cons: "3-4-3 economy seating in a 777 that was originally designed for 3-3-3 (2-5-2) makes for really cramped seating. This is in keeping with industry trends, but is regrettable. No brandy/cognac for alcohol selections."
Pros: "A nice short flight: there isn't much to say here, but the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crewman seemed somewhat pushy. Perhaps a recalcitrant passenger put him in a bad mood."
Cons: "Moving through security and customs in the Toronto airport was incredibly slow, with 4 or 5 checkpoints, all with lines. Staff were polite but there were not enough of them. We almost missed our connecting flight, and our bags apparently did miss it, because they have not yet arrived in Chicago (see previous comments). Air Canada should have seen the problem in terms of timing with the connecting flight and expedited better. Will try to avoid Air Canada in the future, especially if there are connections in Toronto."
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."
