Pros: "Everything was really good. Crew was helpful and provided excellent customer service. Food provided was good."
Cons: "The only thing that would have been better was cooler air in the cabin. I got very hot on both my flights to and from Frankfurt."

Pros: "Cabin crew and service"
Cons: "Left over 2 hours late and we missed our condo in Chicago and had to rebook and spend the night"
Pros: "Staff were excellent. Helped me with storing my insulin in the fridge."

Pros: "Everything, comfort, quietness,"
Cons: "Boarding, de-icing made us wait long on plane n it got stuffy"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle. It is always uncomfortable due to the fact that you need to ask the person sitting next to you to get up because you need to use the restroom. Aside from that my overall experience was excellent. The food, entertainment, staff all helpful and friendly."
Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Pros: "The food and attention of personal crew"
Cons: "Delays in the itineraries and the entertainment system did not work well"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and accomodating from check in to debording."
Cons: "Plain was very warm. Boarding in Frankfurt was on the tarmac and because I was traveling with someone who required wheelchairs it made boarding a huge pain."
Pros: "Middle seat was empty in business class"
Cons: "Business class leg room was not much, if any, more than in economy but the ticket cost sure was a lot more."
Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"
Pros: "I love that I only had to take 2 planes I will buy this way again"
Pros: "They are prompt and very fast at loading and unloading. Quite a bit better than any other airline I have used. Leg room on small airplanes was good in economy, but not as good on larger jet to USA. The servers offered me ice in my water bc I am American. I appreciated that so much since I'd spent the last 12 days in Europe where no one serves with ice!"
Pros: "Attitude of staff"
Cons: "Food and delay"
Pros: "The Germans are known for their efficiency and Lufthansa followed through with that. From the check-in process to cabin service, all was top notch. As I was sitting near the front of economy, any "extra" economy plus meals were handed out as to avoid waste. I was the recipient of a delicious Caprese salad. A nice treat."
Cons: "Delayed in plane almost an hour after landing before being allowed to deplane"
Pros: "We were traveling to cancun, the best part is we picked up our bags just in our final destination."
Pros: "We were warmly welcomed on board by the flight captain. I had not expected this. My wife has some physical challenges and received special treatment, in fact we were accorded priority in boarding as she had to temporarily use a wheel chair. Me and my daughter all enjoyed the privilege by association."
Cons: "My wife is diebetes, we had requested for a special diet but although this was documented on the air ticket, there was oversight and she had to make do with normal menu. Fortunately there was no adverse consequences."
Pros: "The boarding procedure was fast and efficient. There was almost no waiting in line and the crew got the plane ready in minutes. Entertainment and food on the flight were both pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable. For long flights like this one, they could really use a bit wider and softer seats."
Pros: "loved the candy given to us when we left the plane"
Cons: "Too many announcements"
Pros: "New aircraft, clean, comfortable"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The organization of this flight was great— my party of three boarded quickly, and we were pleased with the complimentary drinks service. The entertainment options could have presented with more options, however, I was not upset with what I watched. The crew was very attentive, and the flight was smooth, overall."
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was very hot— there were a lot of us packed into this flight, and there were no sources of air.. so it got pretty stuffy. Between the temperature and the lights staying on for a majority of the flight, it was difficult to sleep, especially for so many hours. In addition to this, I had a dairy allergy, and was not able to eat either of the meals I was offered, because the fish and “veggie pasta” were both covered in cheese."
Pros: "Crew were efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great food and service. Business class lie flat seats are good for the sleep."

Pros: "Good flight, nice crew"
Cons: "2,5 hrs delay, no bus available despite boarding started"
Pros: "Short flight. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delayed even though the plane was there and clean. A 2205 flight didn't leave until 2240 causing many of us to miss our train. No crew ever mentioned why flight was delayed or when we would get moving."
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Pros: "The friendly crew were good."
Cons: "Insufficient legroom, limited drink options and dirty toilets. The flight was booked completely and hence the toilets were always occupied and unclean."
Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"
Cons: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."
Pros: "I loved the choice of movies"
Cons: "Lack of space"
Pros: "Great service !!!!"
Cons: "Flight overbooked and once they agreed to let me on the flight was delayed for hours. Made me remember why I fly BA now most of the time"
Pros: "Had individual screens for each passenger. Most seats seemed to have a good movie selection."
Cons: "Chaotic doesn't even begin to describe boarding. We had to be bussed to the jet for some reason, then there were two doors to board through that people would just pick at random."
Pros: "I like the service, friendly flight attendants. Flight was punctual, food was good."
Cons: "I don't understand the boarding process with Lufthansa. Lufthansa does not board by zone but they let everybody board at the same time. The seats in economy class are not wide enough."
Pros: "Love being able to watch whatever I want on the entertainment screen. The crew was very considerate and helpful to passengers. This plane had the restrooms downstairs which really reduced congestion."
Cons: "The "dinner" meal was really not good. The lunch meal was OK. I remember much better food being served several years ago when I last flew Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew was very nice - liked flight tracker - personal tv's - food was good. Boarding was good -"
Cons: "Seat in economy are just to small - need to be able to recline a bit more for a 9 to 10+ hour flight. So close together it was hard to eat being in the middle seat. Movies and music need to be updated -"
Pros: "Great crews, great amenities, good food. Best flights I've been on in a long time."
Pros: "Service was good, the airplane was good also"
Cons: "This time we experienced a strong turbulence. It would be more helpful if the crew gave updates about the situation more often, was really scary. Also, the food was not good at all...."
Pros: "Movie selection was great, food was ok as was the service."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning was nothing short of a cattle call. No plane ettiquette and no direction from the crew on how to properly deplane. I am a 6'2" tall person stuck in between two 300+ men. Not only did I feel uncomfortable I felt unsafe. When I asked if I could upgrade to premium economy or even business it was a straight no without even looking in the system to see if their were open seats. The girl in front of me ate with her seat reclined which allowed me a whole inch of space to bring my food to my mouth. Terrible airline and terrible experience. If I could cuss in this review I would."
Pros: "Lufhansa did a great job. During flights, everything was good."
Cons: "Security check in Frankfurt was terrible, violating all human rights in every possible way! Please don't tell me that it is for passengers safety; such a humiliation cannot be justified by any reason! Since Lufthansa uses this airport for the most of their flights, I would not fly with this company anymore"
Pros: "courteous crew, clean equipment, right temp"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, and a timely take off. The crew was attentive and professional. The entertainment available made the 9 hours go by quickly!"
Cons: "The food was edible but not the best. The bread was especially disappointing-- ice cold and doughy! I hate those reclining seats. When you have your meal tray down it is impossible to move."
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "After flying Lufthansa from Frankfurt to San Francisco this was dissapointing,old plane,service was just soso."

Pros: "We we’re late getting in from Halifax because of head winds. Walked from one plane to another and luggage arrived with us."
Pros: "Friendly staff on time"
Pros: "The crew were so kind and friendly. Kept the spirit upbeat and served us well. The bulkhead was roomy enough for carry on bags, so they weren’t taken away from us to be checked, which happened to us on the same flight last year with another Canadian airline."
Cons: "I do miss personal screens in seats, although I understand it’s not really necessary anymore. If there were a ledge or place in seats to accommodate personal devices for better viewing, that would b amazing. No more neck cricks."
Cons: "Late, late, late. No window, and prisoner in my seat!"
Pros: "Most employees were courteous."
Cons: "Flights were delayed multiple times . boarding was slow, seemed un organized."
Pros: "We were happy to be seated in the exit row which gave us additional space. Although it was a direct flight, they offered drinks and snacks twice, when normally when flying I only see then come by once. I noticed Aiden seemed really friendly and kept a smile. Also when dropping off our luggage beforehand was a fairly speedy process."
Cons: "Seats don’t lean back."
Cons: "They stopped renting out iPads on board. If don’t have own screens or for some reason couldn’t download app, makes for a long flight. Overall, great flight; all on time. Leg room borderline. Window seats can’t sneak to bathroom without waking others. Pretty much need to all get up to let them out."
Cons: "Coffe was soooo bad!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything borded on time. Cabin crew was very accommodating in allowing me to move seats to an empty row."
Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"
Pros: "The head steward was excellent. He has a great sense of humour and was very informative. The flight was on time and comfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time and flight crew was very friendly."

Pros: "flight was not full drinks on board free kind staff wonderful views"
Cons: "for a person measuring 2.00 metres / 6.6 ft the entrance to the plane is very low Standing up in the aisle was impossible."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very expensive"
Pros: "This leg of the travelling was fine. I know I got fleeced on the price of the round trip to go home for a funeral but didn't realize just how bad until my seatmate told me he paid a third of what I did. Note to self: Don't ask the traveller next to you how much they paid for their ticket..."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Flight on time."
Pros: "Flight crew very attentive."
Cons: "Condition of bathroom at front."
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled . Re booked on a different flight , that one was delayed with no new time , with a threat that that flight would be cancelled , we were booked on a 3rd flight , to Toronto to connect to a delta flight to Atlanta . We were told that delta would give us our boarding pass to Atlanta at the delta desk in Toronto. At delta in Toronto we were advised that there were no available seats on the flight we were supposed to be booked on . Delta booked us to Detroit then on to Atlanta . Trip delay was over 9 hours and lots of stress and run around . Very disappointed with west jet . We have always used west jet and this was the first time we felt we were given very poor service .causing a very long and stressful day , arriving at our destination 9 hours later than planned , resulting in a 24 hour exhausting travel day."
Pros: "on time, quick boarding. NO LINES at TSA!!!!"
Pros: "Our boarding agents were very helpful, courteous, and kind. They have a tough job, especially with all of the delays and fussy people. We were given quality service each time there was an interaction."

Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"
Pros: "The staff are super friendly. The prices are good and the travel times and locations are convenient and what we were looking for."
Cons: "Checking in was a bit of a pain - there was a WJ staffer helping us with the self serve kiosk. She obviously didn't know how to use it, and just hit the continue button and kept asking us to fill in the personal information on the screens. It was funny to laugh at afterwards but not at the time."
Pros: "Easy boarding. The crew helped me with the car seat that was blocked with the seat belt. We got all our luggages in a short time and in good condition."
Cons: "WestJet connect not available on that flight. Bad weather in Montreal (scary landing)."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "The crew and service rendered."
Cons: "The chairs were in bad condition and the airline was delayed which made me nearly miss my next flight."
Pros: "Order ahead food was easy and selection was tasty"

Pros: "the crew are always great. the flight was on time and fast!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. Boarding was well organized and fast."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."
Pros: "A few days before our flight to Halifax which was originally scheduled with a stop over in Toronto, we received an email from Westjet that they were putting us on the direct flight. This enabled us to avoid the Toronto bottleneck and get to our destination on time. Thank you Westjet."

Cons: "Absolutely hate the seats!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was an early morning flight 8 am. I needed to get up at 5 am to get ready for this flight. AC notified me 5:05 am that my flight delayed 3 hrs to 11am. I wish they told us the night before so no need to get up that early."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good and seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing because there were few or no announcements of which zone was boarding, and it wasn't clear exactly which desk to proceed to for boarding"
Cons: "Dirty plane, garbage stuffed in seat pocket. Tray table disgusting!"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "Smooth as you like"
Pros: "Very organized crew for the boarding on instructing passengers with carry-ons etc for the overhead storage compartments. Flight left on time."

Cons: "Delayed. Missed layover. Lost luggage. Poor communication. Agents had attitudes."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, leg room adequate. Crew helpful."
Cons: "The young child that screamed for the first two hours of the flight. The man in the seat behind me that coughed loudly constantly for 5.5 hours. No sleep on an overnight flight. Gluten free options not available for me and my wife. We tried to book these before the flight but we're not allowed access for this. Flight entertainment system froze and had to be reset, resulting in blank screens for the first 30 minutes or so."
Pros: "Air Canada couldn’t have been better, I missed a flight they waived their fees and got me on the next direct flight home. Wonderful service !!"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Pros: "I travel a lot. I have to say both Air Canada and Kayak did a excellent job to remind me via email and text message to check-in online 24 hrs before my departure, never fail. Kayak also keeps on updating me about my flight on time or not, gate number etc. As a traveler, these features are very important. keep up with the good work!"
Pros: "Airline provided a flight to Toronto, with reasonable amenities and boarding process."
Cons: "Had to load my own suitcase on the luggage belt - I am elderly, with back issues, traveling alone. Attendant was courteous and helped me, but stated that staff "doesn't do it any more" because of safety issues. No help will be given in the future. Plane left two hours late - I missed my connection. Was given a stipend for an overnight stay, but no explanation was given about the delay. Staff couldn't tell me if my checked baggage was on the plane the next morning. I probably won't fly Air Canada again."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Almost 2 hour delay in Halifax until 1:30 am but Air Canada lounge closed at 11 anyway."
Pros: "Good breakfast."
Cons: "Cabin was cool"
Cons: "It was 3am and my boarding pass wasn't bright enough on my phone. Instead of politely asking me to go print out my boarding pass at the check in stations, she yelled at me and told me I was holding up the line"
Cons: "One of the worst overall flight experiences. Flight attendants ignored assistance light, no entertainment ( only option was paying for an ipad), and blankets had to be paid for!!. Flight was so booked that we were late taking off. Poor flight attendants were obviously understaffed. Will avoid this airline when possible"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours but no one was in much of a rush to get it going"
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing"
Cons: "Too hot and cramped"
Cons: "Kayak did not allow us to reserve seats, and the seats we received were not together, even though we purchased the seats six months in advance. My seat was at the front facing rear wards, with a non-tilting seat and little foot room."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "They didn't give out free nuts/pretzels. The entertainment system was off for half the flight even through they said it would reboot in 10 minutes. Loading the plane was the slowest I have ever seen."
Pros: "Seating in a double rather than triple layout."
Cons: "Delay of almost an hour on the runway because of a mechanical problem, after being asked to turn off cell phones and so we couldn't notify those meeting us. Our flight arrival did not appear on the board at Pearson , thus complicating our communication with those meeting us. Baggage was slow being unloaded. Will seriously consider flying to Hamilton with West Jet next time we return from Halifax."
Cons: "Air Canada shares a trait with many other incompetent organizers: everything is fine if nothing goes wrong, but there are no contingency plans in place in case something goes wrong. So, things get more and more delayed. Can't you predict roughly when the plane is going to land (once it is in the air!) and arrange for some gate to be open, so that we don't have to sit on the ground for 45 minutes once it has landed, for example? People who know how to organize are ordinarily capable of doing that. Furthermore, the lack of transparency is really frustrating: we just sit on the tarmac with no indication of how long we're going to be there, and the estimates of the delays are completely wrong when we're given them."
Cons: "Lousy food and no snacks"
Cons: "Our flight originating in Halifax was 1.5 hours delayed and we knew there was no way we would make our connecting flight in Toronto with a 40 min window to pass through customs, US immigration, and reenter security into the US bound F gates. We requested to be rebooked for early the following day to avoid being stranded in Toronto. Acknowledging it was unlikely we could make the connection, the staff told us that because the computer didn't list it as a "missed connection", they could not take any steps to rebook us. Of course, we missed the connection and were stranded for an entire 24 hours in Toronto with two small children."
Pros: "This was my third air canada rouge flight so I knew what to expect. Staff are always super courteous and good food options available."
Cons: "Almost 0 arm/leg room, flight was delayed and they tried bumping me off my flight onto another because they had overbooked."
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."
Cons: "The security check took so long. We made it last minute even thought we were in the airport more than 1.5 hours before the flight (as recommended)!!"
Pros: "flight was fine pleasant flight attendants was late flight so slept a lot now much to add"
Pros: "The t flight was completely uneventful-the best kind."
Cons: "We sat at the back with no windows and there was no entertainment except for an app available through wifi on our phones."
Pros: "Crew was fine, should serve at least a cookie with the drink..."
Cons: "Didn,t like the service I received getting off the plane.. Cannot walk any distance..Didn,t order a wheelchair, because I didn,t know I had too. Asked for a ride on the golf carts, got told to walk around the corner, and one will pick me up!! Never saw one yet!!! Took awhile but managed to walk to the luggage, but had to sit for half hour with the pain in my legs.....No thank you Air Canada, next tine it will be different air lines....."
Cons: "Our flight from Halifax to Los Angeles via Toronto should have left at 3:15 on Sunday so that we could arrive back in Los Angeles by 10:14 pm. Instead the flight was delayed and left 200 people stranded and waiting in line for customer service. Because I did not have cell service in Canada, I was forced to wait 2 hours in line only to have the agent at the counter make me talk to an agent on the phone. Prior to that, we were shocked that one of the only two agents at the counter left the counter to talk to people in line behind us instead of servicing the customers first come first serve. When I asked him to please return to the counter to help the next person in line, he mumbled that that was not what he wished to do. Meanwhile, all flights out of Toronto were fully booked that night. The delayed flight finally left at 1:30 am. Had Air Canada notified its customers about the 10 hour delay, we could have spent that time in Halifax. Both my husband and I were very disappointed in how AC handled the whole situation. Both the counter agents and the phone agent were unhelpful in offering us options."
Pros: "when I landed"
Cons: "First off the the plane was mid takeoff and stopped which terrified the passengers and crew. Then we learned the plane had technical issues which lead to a 50 minute delay, then air canada did nothing as in terms of compensation. My audio jack for the entertainment system was broken, seat 19F on flight 617 by the way... Then I got up to use the washroom and when I came out I had to wait 30 minutes at the back of the plane standing until the servers were done serving drinks and snacks/food. Then the landing was terrifying as the plane was swooping/shaking much more than normal, even the board crew looked a bit worried. Could NOT wait to be done of the flight, one of my worst ever."
Pros: "Very satisfied with the flight."
Pros: "Worst service I've ever had"
Cons: "The flight for Montreal was half empty and than there was a flight to Toronto Hallf empty as well, and the flight Toronto to Montreal was half empty...by coincidence our flight Halifax-Montreal on Sunday at 19:15 was cancelled due to technical issues. However it was obvious that AirCanada didn't care about the passenger time or valued it...instead of flying 3 empty flights they cancelled our flight and maximize capacity on the other planes...not happy we didn't get any voucher and we wasted 4 hours of our time and didn't have dinner until 1 am"
Pros: "Staff and plane were fabulous"
Cons: "This site allowed me to book a CANCELED flight. I found out 20 hours before my scheduled flight that I was on an 11:20pm flight not a 7pm flight."
Pros: "Love the look of the Halifax Airport after its renovations , brighter than it used to be, Check-in and boarding went very quickly The plane took on extra fuel just n case we had a layover in Toronto because of poor weather but that didn't happen"
Cons: "The possibility of a layover in Toronto because of poor weather lol"
Pros: "Good service...plane clean....attendants very attentive to all passengers!"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, no delays, good staff, all good :)"
Pros: "The friendly service."
Cons: "When my baggage arrived a zippered pocket was open and a an antique compass that my father (who just passed away) left me was taken. I contacted Air Canada who said that they couldn't do anything about it, they only allow claims for lost baggage. I was heartbroken, and there is nothing Air Canada can do about securing passengers baggage from thieves. Very disappointed with the lack of support with this issue."

Pros: "One of the crew members was very good"

Cons: "On time departures"
Cons: "It was a NINE hour flight and there was NO FOOD provided!!! Why do we have to pay extra for the crappy food??"
Cons: "THE TEMPERATURE WAS FREEZING. THE COLDEST FLIGHT IVE EVER BEEN ON AND IVE BEEN ON A LOT. IT FELT LIKE IT WAS 30-40 DEFGREES."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
Pros: "Not much, no internet, small seats, cost doubled because I had to know pay hotel for a night."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hrs late arriving, therefore I missed my connection flight to Dallas. I had to spend the night at a cost of $200.00 at Holiday Inn, arrived 24 hrs later. Not United fault, weather related. This is my 3rd United flight that was delayed by hours. Get first flight out in morning, less chance for hours of delay."
Cons: "Take off was delayed by 75 minutes due to mechanical problem and paperwork. Crew and flight were fantastic but it seems they could have discovered the mechanical problem prior to everyone boarding the plane."
Pros: "It landed."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganized. The seats are ridiculously small n close. The cabin was uncomfortably hot. The seats literally reclined 1 inch, no joke. No food on a 6 hour flight. The tv screens where 20 years old n the size of an iPhone plus. The flight just sucked and United has taken a huge dive in my opinion of them."
Pros: "United Airlines Flight 202 Left on time. It was a Boeing 777 so it had a lot of room."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed focused only on the small First Class section and rushed through everything in the Economy Class. They rushed through the "Food Service" and didn't want to answer questions about what is on their menu. The menu was removed from the magazines in our row. Fortunately, we brought our own snacks. The Economy CLass cabin had a terrible odor. It really smelled. Maybe they should clean the plane once in a while. United Airlines ALWAYS has issues with entertainment. You MUST download their App to your cell phone. Then, they allow you to connect to their entertainment system. If you don't, you cannot access WiFi without paying $26 for the flight ... the WiFi access is inconsistent and limiting and doesn't always work so the download doesn't always complete. This was a nine hour flight from Hell. I think I prefer Frontier Airlines. Although the airlines make you pay for everything now, at least you expect some attention and food options and a plane that doesn't smell. It was nauseating. Don't even ask me about the "Miles" that they keep screwing up ... RAY HANANIA"
Pros: "The crew was top notch."
Cons: "Window was missing the shade. Food was tough (roast beef)"
Cons: "There is no compassion with United"
Cons: "Flight attendant had a lot of attitude. I live in Maui so I'm used to the whole "I'm local and you're not" entitled attitude some locals have, but it was completely uncalled for and unprofessional to do this to visitors. She literally asked the passengers where they were from and then launched into how she was local and it was her way or the highway. She was also really incompetent at the job overall. She gave me attitude and anyone that required her to do her job."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no explanation."
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Pros: "First flight on a 777 ... quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long day in a plane but necessary if you want to travel to bucket list destinations!"
Cons: "Thank you for the great flight!"
Cons: "2 of the flight attendants were not friendly and one was flat out rude. They handed out some form that needed to be filled out before we entered Hawaii. When I asked for a pen she said they don't hand out pens and to start asking neighbors, which didn't have any either., however when she came back around to pick the forms up and some people didn't have them filled out she reprimanded everyone and kept saying you had 5 hours to fill these out. Her communication skills were not what I expected and her lectures were not necessary."
Cons: "No wi-fi"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, flight was on time, all was OK. Nothing to recommend particularly. d"
Cons: "Few choices in beverages and food. No decaf or green tea or coffee except instant coffee. "Snack" was nothing much."
Pros: "One ground agent worked hard to communicate what decision the airline had made regarding the flight delay in response to aircraft malfunction. His words helped establish a priority on which passages need to be rebooked"
Cons: "Flight Attendant communication was less than professional. Speed, pitch, and I found it generally annoying"
Pros: "Power plugs"
Cons: "No tvs"
Pros: "Lots of drinks. 10 free Movie options. Snacks. Blankets. Great!"
Cons: "Tiny crowded space, and they wouldn't let economy use the front two restrooms"
Pros: "Boarding was really easy"
Cons: "Not only you have to pay for checking one bag, not only you have to pay for a poor meal, you also have to bring your own device to watch a movie!"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "the price of the flight"
Cons: "have to pay for movies, uncomfortable seats for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "My experience with Air Canada was all around pleasant. I would definitely fly with them again. Any negative aspect during my travels was due to their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "If flying within the States we used United Airlines; a partner of Air Canada. The flight itinerary changed numerous times before our departure, including two days before we left. The change added an additional layover, and put us at our destination nearly 6 hours later than out original booking. This meant we lost a decent portion of the first day of our honeymoon. However, we were forced to stay an extra day when our return flight was cancelled. After spending 8 hours in the airport we were informed that our Monday flight was cancelled, and the next available flight would not be until Wednesday! United Airlines let us down on the way to our destination and on our trip home. Air Canada was great, but I dread having to use their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "Didn't happen because of delays on first flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Process of going through customs in Halifax instead of Newark was very efficient. I didn't order food or use inflight entertainment."
Pros: "fast comfortable flight thanks to an upgrade."
Pros: "People next to me"
Cons: "Promised a reclining seat...was in front of exit...NO recline...in pain the entire trip"
Cons: "Connecting flights so close together we barely made it to the gate. Crew wasn't as friendly. An uncomfortable 5.5 hour flight to say the least. I'll pay extra to fly American again next time."
Cons: "Headphone jack was also broken on this flight , and my seat also did not go back"
Pros: "The staff was nice and professional"
Cons: "Why should we have to pay extra to have a little extra leg room? Aren't fares high enough? Also, I had a credit for directv but was charged again."
Cons: "I fly out of Halifax once a week and the flight has let 4 hours late two weeks in a row with out compensation. I missed my connection flight and was forced to sleep in airport. Never again Delta all the way."
Cons: "In flight wifi not worth money. Cant stream on paid for inflight wifi. Didnt want to watch pre loaded movies on united app. Should have free in flight movies that you dont have to pay for or allow you to stream what you want on paid for wifi."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra 155 for a seat in back of 1st class!!"
Pros: "too crowded, seats small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "1st flight left on time and was comfortable."
Cons: "2nd flight missed due to multiple flights from gate 130. No seats close to gate. Speakers not loud enough. Garbled speakers. To much background noise. Very confusing. Was able to rebook later flight but very inconvenient and not optimum."
Cons: "Seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable and felt like a very old mattress in desespertly need of replacement"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth, and flight was very timely (landed early)."
Cons: "Male flight attendant was extremely rude. I was asleep when the food was being served and politely asked for a tray of food once I woke up. Fight attendant that I asked was at the time collecting trash and snapped back saying that he had to finish what he was doing first. After about 10 min the lady attendant walked by so I simply mentioned that I was waiting for my food in case he had forgotten or was busy. She asked if I had mentioned it to the man attendant and I told her that I had and that I was simply waiting. She proceeded to go to him (not sure what she told him), but he later came by and angrily handed me my tray of food and annoyingly explained that he had to finish handing the trash In order to then handle my food. I told him that I completely understood, and he AGAIN snapped back saying "oh really? Because I heard you were complaining!" And walked away. The rest of the flight he proceeded to ignore me. I had been nothing but polite to him. The lady across the isle was looking his way and the man next to me made a comment to me that I had done nothing wrong and mentioned he he noticed how rude the attendant was to me. That even if I HAD complained, he was in no place to confront a customer about it. Regardless, I hadn't even complained one bit."
Pros: "Everything , great service , very attentive , smooth flight ."
Pros: "Overall, this was an OK flight; nothing to brag about."
Cons: "The flight attendant told me that I did not need to collect my bag in Toronto and that it would automatically be sent onward to Halifax. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. All United passengers arriving in Canada MUST manually gather their luggage at baggage claim in Toronto and clear customs manually. ONLY Air Canada has this automatic option. Even if the United flight has an Air Canada code share United passengers MUST clear customs manually. How hard is this for flight attendants to understand?"
Pros: "Nice boarding and effective attentive crew."
Cons: "Well it was over 5 hours and we got a miniature bag of spicy mixed stuff."
Pros: "United Staff very helpful. When initial flight was cancelled, attempts were made to book on anther flight. Unfortunately unsuccessful"
Pros: "Getting there."
Cons: "Seated me in back. Made me board last. Had to walk all the way back up to the front of the plane to put my bag in the rack. 180 people with only 2 restrooms in the back. Much of the time there were people standing in line right over me waiting. Lots of bumping and grinding with my fellow passengers."
Cons: "My luggage got lost! No water offered!"
