Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The trip was a smooth and on time."
Cons: "The lack of finesse and discretion among the crew. The food quality was poor."
Pros: "Entertainment system is better than usual"
Cons: "No wifi available for purchase for such a long flight"
Pros: "The flight wasn’t full, so I sat in my own row,?which offered spare leg room (I’m 6’2”). Time to fix the leg room issue on Rouge flights — it’s 2018."
Cons: "Crew seemed uninterested in general. On phones in back while people struggling to find luggage space. Coffee cups and plastic utensils, etc, stored in overhead bins so people at the back had to search for carry-on space elsewhere, again, without assistance from on board crew. Offered service only once and many were sleeping so didn’t get anything. The overall check-in process could be easier, as the app doesn’t always work as it should."
Pros: "Great service- friendly patient helpful, pilots that kept passengers updated and very reassuring and confident sounding. KAYAK got me perfect seats!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t spectacular, and being limited to credit card purchasing is always a problem for many travellers. Pre-purchasing options are a great option except for last minute wishes."
Pros: "we had to pay for everything"
Cons: "flight was cancelled. poor communication."
Cons: "It was terribly hot. The flight was late by 4 hours. Extremely poor service"
Cons: "Very cold plane"
Pros: "Loved how the ride was dead so I was able to get a whole row to myself and stretch out. Food was excellent! Flight attendants were very nice!"
Pros: "crews nice and efficient"
Cons: "no entrrtainment, Video"
Pros: "The crew on board the plane was as good as can be expected. They were polite and tried to be helpful."
Cons: "From the time of booking the flight, we tried to sort out our profiles, provide passport and KTN, and frequent flyer info, as requested when we booked. Website problems were numerous, from being kicked off multiple times, to refusing to accept my info. I tried numerous times to call on the phone since the web site didn't work, but either didn't get through or was directed back to the web site. Eventually, I reached someone that told me it would be best to just sort it out at the airport. At the airport, I was told I should have set things up ahead of time. In the end, two of us traveling together, with work to do together over the course of the 13 hour flight, ended up sitting on opposite sides of the plane, and didn't get fed because they ran out of food. This shouldn't happen to anyone, but having paid for premium economy seats, you can imagine I was even angrier. We brought this up with a customer service rep in person when we landed and were told that she had no power to do anything and that we should call when we got home. And just to top things off, when I realized I couldn't get work done, I tried watching a movie and learned that the audio jack on my entertainment system was broken."
Pros: "My group of five arrived to the airport late (one hour before the flight took off), but the crew worked together to quickly process all of us and get us through to ensure that we didn't miss our flight. We really appreciated it!"
Pros: "The crews were nice and the seats were comfortable"
Cons: "There were so much miscommunication. Coming from Hong Kong it was late for 3 hrs , then I need to pick up my luggages and went thru immigration. Missed the flight to Toronto, checked at the counter and was told did not need to pick up my luggage until I got to Atlanta. Well at Toronto, my luggages didn't go through. I had to pick them up and went thru immigration on the USA side again. Missed my flight again! It was so frustrating except all the employees were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Economy seats are very small and tight. Food is average at best. Crew is semi-friendly/"
Pros: "I liked that at 3 am I finally got a room"
Cons: "The farthest I got in 2 days was Toronto Canada"
Pros: "Direct to Toronto"
Cons: "Too many to list"
Cons: "While checking our bags at the counter we were given the wrong boarding pass (someone else's name on both) so we had to go through security twice. The flight was super cold. When I asked for a blanket for my wife, the flight attendant said it was $7."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable cabin"
Cons: "Brusque nature of some of the attendants"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful. They gave me some medicine when I got a headache."
Cons: "One piece of my chicken tasted weird, chewy, and just not like food should be. The rest of it was ok."
Pros: "Tv screens were cool"
Cons: "Because of snow my flight got moved 5 hours later with no notification. We boarded around 6pm. I was very hungry as its dinner time. When i tried to buy food they said they had no more meals available. So i went hungry. I was very unimpressed"
Pros: "Nice plane on short flight. Why can't they use the nice planes on the long haul flights?"
Pros: "Excellent service throughout the flight"
Pros: "Good service"
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."
Pros: "The direct flight was good time saver. The food was alright and the crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. In the same class, Lufthansa was more comfortable..."
Cons: "I did not take it."
Cons: "Was put on standby for a flight I purchased a full ticket to, had to wait for an hour by the terminal to make sure I got a ticket, which meant I had no time to get any food. Would only take credit card on the plane so I went without eating all day. Headphone jack was broken, meaning tv was useless"
Pros: "more leg room! pleasant staff at check in and on flight. Brilliant choice of movies. socket to charge phone or iPad . nice wine available to buy on board. I would certainly choose to fly with them whenever possible!."
Pros: "The personnel were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "AC Rouge domestic flight was horrible. Tiny seats that reclined about 1.5 inches jammed together. Not that size plane's original configuration I'm sure. Absolutely miserable. The personnel were all very nice and competent--I felt sorry for them having to work in such an environment. I've been in small African airline's planes which were small but not that uncomfortable."
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Food not enough"
Pros: "Tv screens were bigger and alot more newer than west jets."
Cons: "I always flew with west jet and herd people say good things about air canada. So I decided to try them out. I had a 4 hour flight and I did not like the seats.. they were not comfortable at all.. the padding felt very thin and could feel the plastic she'll of the seat.. it wasn't just that plane.. i had a return flight with 1 lay over. I would go back to flying west jet. They had the same size planes and way more comfortable seats."
Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Luggage was lost from Vancouver to Seattle with absolutely no communications and I had to chase it's whereabouts the next day"
Pros: "Plane was super old...peeling paint, barely any full size luggage space, no in flight tv and always late or delayed. 4/4 flights we took were delayed. This airline is the worst and were terrible at keeping us updated on delays or cancellations."
Cons: "Couldn't rate entertainment- there was none - none expected"
Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."
Pros: "The fact that I could charge my i phone..."
Cons: "The lax attitude to service and customer satisfaction there was a problem with the entertainment system, took over an hour to get attention... But no positive resolution..."
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to rush to connecting flight with only 25 min to spare from Toronto to tel aviv... Baggage is missing as well"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. At some point we boarded the plane then asked to disembark it as we were still not ready for take off. They told us there were some weather issues in Toronto ... I looked at 3 different weather channels who said that the weather was mostly clear in Toronto with a few scattered showers."
Pros: "Idont like a bit."
Cons: "It was to noise inside the cabin,no space for my carry onl lggage,they only free coffe or soda,any thing ealse you pay,eg. coffe was cold,next time i will think over before take fly."
Cons: "Did not have any monitors 9 hour flight with nothing to view"
Cons: "We took off 1 to two hours late"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good and the staff did reasonably well even though most of the customers were clearly unhappy."
Cons: "A majority of flights run by Air Canada to the US were delayed. If this had been due to weather, fine, but at least our delay was caused by mechanical malfunction. Our flight was delayed for 5 hours due to multiple different mechanical issues including that the bathroom would not function during the entire flight, the wing flap had issues and the door would not seal correctly. The flight immediately preceding ours to Minneapolis was also delayed by over 4 hours. Surprisingly the flight before that also had a bathroom malfunction that prevented customers from using the bathroom. If this was the exception we could understand, but looking at the history of our flight, it's only on time 23% of the time. The poor customer service people must hate their lives. Something needs to change."
Cons: "I ordered a special lacto-ovo vegetarian meal ahead of time. They said they received the order, but didnt have my food. They said they would do their best but ended up giving me a plate of lettuce and bread. When I asked about the bread having dairy or eggs they said they didnt know, so I had to throw it out."
Cons: "The entertainment options where pretty bad for a flight that long. Old movies over wifi."
Cons: "The flight boarded, departed, and landed late causing me to miss my flight to Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Attendant was nice"
Cons: "run down cabin"
Pros: "there were only 12 passengers so lots of space."
Cons: "the incoming plane was late so we were late boarding, then due to this we had to sit on the runway as we were told we could not land in Toronto. I had a short layover and the flight attendant was less than helpful and apparently had never bothered to learn anything about the Toronto airport or where to go to get this information. After getting into the airport I found out that no Air Canada employee knows anything about the Toronto airport. The cleaning crew finally directed me to the Air Canada help desk after I had asked at 4 different air Canada check in desks. Thankfully I did not miss my flight."
Pros: "Short easy flight"
Cons: "Flight was late, very little communication, hot and uncomfortable and slow, and everyone missed their connections."
Pros: "too crowded , not organised enough"
Pros: "Brussels airport clearance was quite efficient"
Cons: "Better instructions at the airport"
Cons: "Maybe the entertainment choices"
Cons: "Poor organization, 2 hour line to check your bag, crowding due to lack of communication and organization at the gate, slow luggage boarding. All of which led to a 45 minute delay sitting on a hot and unairconditioned flight followed by a missed connection and 6 hour wait at the next airport. There was no entertainment inflight, so nothing there to rate. The staff were pleasant under the conditions. Nothing else was positive."
Pros: "This flight was eventually cancelled and the rating is solely on the ground experience. EuroWings could not have done anything worse. The process took from 10:30am upon arrival in Dusseldorf til 11:00pm when we were told the counter closed at 10pm and nothing could be done till next day."
Cons: "Have representatives on the ground and make public announcements about the progress, next steps, help offered and steps that need to be taken. The info was sparse and had to be gotten on an individual basis. Nothing was coordinated or communicated and every step had to be done WITHOUT HELP."
Pros: "More space that on competitors."
Cons: "The crew was not particularly pleasant to deal with. Also, the seat kept reclining itself without me ever pressing the button. Had to constantly adjust it."
Pros: "The captain was able to make up much of the lost time spent boarding."
Cons: "The crew were 20 minutes late getting to the plane. The seats were also uncomfortable. Thankfully, it was only a 50 minute flight."
Cons: "It was hard to keep the washrooms clean despite the effort"
Cons: "Better boarding process"
Pros: "So so"
Cons: "But connecting flight is just 30 minutes delayed schedule because of airline benefits. I have to run the gate and I can make it but I heard 2 passengers didn't. I didn't hear this situation. When I ask staffs how about connecting flight to Nice, staffs just told me your flight is ok."
Pros: "On our longer flight, we were thrilled- nice crew, delicious food, spacious, great pilot, and enjoyable entertainment experience. However, on our shorter flight from Brussels to telaviv, not only was the crew completely inattentive, but they were intentive to some very disturbing things including children who were pulling the hair of other customers and jumping up-and-down in the aisles of the airplane. There was no available entertainment whatsoever. In addition the food was extremely expensive and not particularly tasty. The plane was uncomfortable and smelled atrocious. These 2 vastly different experiences almost made me feel like I was taking 2 different airlines. Please keep consistency."
Cons: "I didn't like the inconsistency of the 2 different planes that I was on. If you are going to have entertainment you should have some form of it on all of your airplanes. The idea that food that you need to buy is so expensive is absurd. I was really blown away by how badly the plane smelled. It was almost as if I was in a bathroom. And on top of that I really felt very unsafe with children jumping up-and-down kicking people pulling their hair etc. While it isn't the job of the flight attendants to be parents, they certainly need to be aware of safety concerns for the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Everything worked out great. Shout out to the Washington Dulles airport for the quickest custom check of my life!"
Cons: "Once in Houston took 30minutes to the luggage to be delivered"
Cons: "Custums on JFK was not utilized to check a full plane with tourists. ESTA finger prints took more than 2 hours."
Cons: "Despite the fact that I reserved a window seat, I was assigned a seat in the middle of the center row. They also 'sanitized' the airplane twice after that closed the doors before take off. They walked up and down the aisle with aerosol spray cans. I don't think people should be subject to unknown chemicals in order for the airline to save time on cleaning the cabin before take off."
Pros: "Not much. Flight was pleasant and smooth."
Cons: "They called us for boarding before anyone was at the gate and we all had to wait on a stairwell until they opened. It made no sense and seemed dangerous to have so many people waiting on the stairs. Nothing was served on an hour flight, not even water unless you paid for it. Never encountered that before on any other airlines."
Cons: "As everyone seems to already know, the food and drink is really not very good at all and they didn't provide enough, especially considering that I was delayed by two hours in total in this trip."
Pros: "Easy to cancel Trip"
Cons: "Kayak did not have a system of knowing that I cancelled the flights"
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Cons: "Read above!! WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!"
Cons: "Paid extra to secure aisle seat booking, reconfirmed byne two days before flight, at check-in was reassigned to a middle seat, without explanatiob or apology. Had to be uncomfortably adamant about paid aisle seat reservation for them to put me in one of the several still available."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and friendly. Departure and arrival was on time."
Cons: "Very narrow and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Departure and arrival was on time"
Cons: "Very narrow and very uncomfortable seats. Didn't have any free snacks or drinks. I asked about free water, the crew even didn't offer to bring it. For free water you have to go to the back of the airplane to get a small cup. Didn't have any entertainment."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "They dropped our connection. Took 3 hours to straighten it out"
Cons: "3€ coffee, no space, flight overbooked."
Cons: "crew indifferent; entertainment limited; food not so good"
Pros: "Be on time"
Cons: "Food, no comfort, movies and music boring"
Cons: "The lady at the gate was rude. I was in a group with small children, we were all family, she made me wait in line without my family."
Pros: "Same coment"
Cons: "Same coment"
Cons: "Coffee costing 3 euros on flight to Venice Uncomfortable seats. My husband and I had to sit apart because airline didn't check us through from Washington DC We will not be using Brussels Airlines"
Pros: "Rude and incompetent crew/employees. Early morning flight was delayed 30 min and therefore we missed our connection. Representatives at the Brussels airport were incompetent, slow and misleading and on top of all our suitcases were lost and 24 hours later no one can tell us where they are"
Pros: "Excellent service and space for economy class."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "I was literally in tears by the end of my flight because my back hurt so bad in the seats. When I was boarding, I had a two hour layover and I still had to run for my flight and they were already boarding when I got there. The food was tasteless. All I could do was try and sleep and pray the flight ended quickly."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "none really, it was fine."
Pros: "Fast Boarding"
Cons: "Was waiting for a lagguage over 30min at Tegel airport"
Pros: "The service was very very professional"
Pros: "On time Polite crew They gave an "express pass" for people with short connection"
Cons: "Waiting an hour and a half to check the luggage and obtain the boarding pass. Totally unacceptable. They only had a couple of agents to check a full plane and one was dedicated to business class. They said it was to save costs !! Flight was delayed and upon arrival no finger so long wait to deplane again."
Cons: "I lost whole lot of items from my suitcase when it left behind at my arrival to Liberia. I never said any because it was Africa and I knew. I would never get those stuff back. I am disappointed"
Cons: "bad customer service. No reliable information about the flight. How someone who never took an airplane can know that you have to get a visa when going to canada. If your ticket says your last destination is us. And i did not even got a full refund for their stupid mistake. Lack of information. You guys should be more careless for your customers."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight from Brussels to Kinshasa was different. It seems for the people of color, there was an old plane. My seat mate TV sCreek did not work. You could tell moldings on seat were very old. one bathroom had no soap, dispenser was broken. I hope this is not your pratice to use your older planes for those traveling to Africa. I will observe this as I travel back to Brussel and on to US."
Pros: "Did not like airline so much."
Cons: "Staff did not allow access to lavatories when they were serving drinks and the long waits after were ridiculous"
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass before reaching my last terminal because it was not ready from Montreal or Toronto, and no staff were available elsewhere in the airport. this prevented me from making necessary purchases to bring with me to Kinshasa, my final destination."
Cons: "All of it. Missed an event because of their delay. An event I paid for."
Pros: "I liked the multi-lingual flight attendants. Friendly and seemed to help everyone get what they need. Pilot performed a smooth landing and the flight was quite smooth."
Cons: "Aircraft need to stay grounded for 2 hours for repairs... After we already boarded! It was very hot, everyone was sweating profusely and facing themselves with magazines. The flight should have just been delayed and everyone should have waited in the comfort of the airport terminal to board later rather than suffering. The headrests are horrible. They jut out and but stress on you upper back, and force you to slouch, which hurts your lower back. I am a pretty resilient young dude, but even I was packing my sweatshirt, pillow, and blanket behind my back to make the seat mildly comfortable. A car style seat would have been much much more comfortable. Worst of all, I had a 12 hour layover, and during that time MY BAG DIDN'T EVEN GET PUT ON THE PLANE! I am on a budget so I couldn't buy toiletries and clothes to wear so I stank for days before my bags were located, brought from Toronto to Brussels, and then delivered to where I'm staying in Belgium. This is easily the worst flying experience I have ever had in my life."
Pros: "Great food and nice crew. They had good tv shows."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."
Cons: "Never flew it; had to transfer to Lufthansa flights."
Pros: "good service clean"
Cons: "waiting a long time for luggage"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Chaotic airport and lost my luggage."
Pros: "The fight was fine. No issues."
Cons: "My biggest disappointment was that no one on the flight was informed that ALL the luggage checked in on the aircraft did not arrive in Budapest. Everyone (about 70-80 passengers) stood for a long while at Budapest Airport for baggage pickup, then went over to talk to Hungarian lost luggage personnel to file their baggage. Why didn't the airline tell us upon check-in, or even announce to the passengers on the aircraft that the bags had not been loaded? This would have saved everyone 10 hours later to try to figure out what happened."
