Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Cons: "Late and bumpy"
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "got there on time, no delays. very smooth"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were nice and informative, and everything was on time"
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, half the time the staff did not use the PA system. They were not clear on who needed to do a passport check. Started to read names off then just gave up and said "a lot of you""
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Cons: "I thought I stated this before about the flight (5), Treatment (5) all the rest (5), but Atlanta Airport does not support disabled people using scooters to get from one plane to another. With more people using these, only a matter of time until a reporter males this an ISSUE. Meanwhile I will make every effort NOT to use ATLANTA HARTSFIELD. This includes my wife, also using a scooter."
Cons: "I showed up 2 hrs before the flight. Was told the flight from Toronto to Minn was delayed 30 minutes and go stand in line to speak to an agent. There were approx 20 in line yet only 2 gate agents at 4:30pm. One of the gate agents kept helping the Premium members and bypassing the standard line. The other agent was in a coma as his average person at counter was 10 min. Finally get to counter and they hand me a boarding pass going via Salt Lake in 30 minutes. But has a 3 hrs layover in SL. I then get to US Custom check for US residents re-entering and the line was a good 30 minute wait. You would think the Delta folks would have accounted for that line. I had to ask everyone in front of them if I could skip in front as the plane was now departing in 10 min. I had to then run on a bum knee and was the last to board. The agent at gate was saying we were calling your name but did they think I could have been stuck in customs? On that short of a window they should have walked me through Customs to make sure I got on a flight they wanted me to take versus my scheduled flight."
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Pros: "Reachung my destination"
Cons: "I can appreciate the stress on everybody's mind but this was the worst time i had flying. Short story, 10am thursday-7pm friday. Less short story, 4 airlines, 3 security screenings and 2 customs stop points.7 delays, 2 cancels and 1 miss. It was a ping pong nightmare and 2 times it was suggested i take a bus...after i spent the money on a plane ticket with no offer of compensation, food vouchers or hotel accommodation. Delta has to convince me to come back to them."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Crew was friendly. We got drinks and snacks twice on the 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The cushions are getting thinner with every new plane. That makes for hard surface and an extra rough turbulence experience. Arm rests are almost non existent again very uncomfortable on a long flight. No Monitors in seat so no uou have to 1 have your own device or RENT one from WestJet. No place you put the device, so you must hold it in your hand for hours. VERY uncomfortable."
Pros: "Though there was lots of air turbulence the Crew added humour in executing their duties which made the trip cautious, calm and added comfortable."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Plus and I don't think I can ever go back. Worth every penny."
Pros: "Easy check-in, bag drop off even with elderly person traveling with us. Great staff at the airport."
Pros: "on time ,friendly staff"
Pros: "A bit more seat room. I'm a tall guy and was a bit cramp"
Cons: "Everyrhing was great"
Cons: "Trip from Toronto to NYC should not be so long. Between boarding getting delayed to finding a gate in NY laguardia, it was just extremely exhausting."
Cons: "Hate to have to buy the food!! No entertainment"
Cons: "There is none."
Pros: "Only the boarding was good"
Cons: "My luggage was damaged"
Pros: "In-flight crew was great!"
Cons: "Manager and crew at the check-in counter are incompetent!!!"
Pros: "Screaming movies"
Cons: "Arriving over a hour late then staying on the tarmac in Orlando for another 45 minutes as the gate wasn't working when there was plenty of other gates available."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and boarding took forever (much longer than usual and I fly pretty often)"
Pros: "Excellent service and departure time"
Cons: "Everything. FIVE hour delay no apology no meal served and absolutely rude customer service by flight attendants. Will never ever travel at West Jet."
Cons: "The flight ran out of all sandwichsd and croissants before we were served. I think that was poor planning. The rest was all not healthy food, so we had nothing to eat!! Norma Sukornyk"
Pros: "They were quick and efficient gwttong everyone ready for a on time depature and we actually arrived a bit early too."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The long delay, 2 kids crying continuous, no place to smoke, no one explained to me that I had to pick up my luggage in Toronto! So now my suitcase is delayed! I was told that it would go straight through to destination. I will never use Delta again! And I will not fly through Detroit or Toronto again!!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, food wasn't to bad either"
Cons: "The amount of juice or drink you get could be a bit more"
Pros: "Comfortable newish aircraft. No entertainement, but it is ok for a short flight; same with food."
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage, I received it about 36 hours later. Most important: they never called me for updates (contrary to their own information sheet). I had to call several times; their online follow-up is badly set up, too."
Pros: "I was upgraded for free, and everyone was incredibly nice and great at their jobs!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent, very professional, friendly, and helpful. The flight itself was smooth, and on time."
Cons: "Took 30 minutes from push-back to runway in TO. Cabin was unpleasantly hot."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1.5 hours because incoming plane did not arrive. Finally took off 2.5 hours late. Just in time to arrive in Charlottetown to a severe thunderstorm. Circled til low on fuel then flew to Moncton. Refuelled and flew back to Charlottetown, arriving at 3 a.m., four hours late. The weather delay was understandable but WestJet's poor scheduling created the problem. Worst of all, the airline never told anyone what was going on, not the passengers nor the people waiting for them at the airport. Total silence. Unbelievable but typical for airlines."
Pros: "It was fast, friendly and over all made me impressed."
Pros: "Smooth, cost effective and friendly staff."
Pros: "As always with Westjet the crew was great, I got upgraded to Plus seating which was a nice surprise."
Cons: "I did experience a technical glitch which didn't let me check in online or with the kiosk due to the system thinking I still owed a flight-change fee from months before. But the woman at the check-in desk fixed things up and upgraded my seat."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed other then that was great"
Pros: "The crew was OK, just a bit too patronising and hyper"
Cons: "Seats were damn uncomfortable and tight. The attendant making the announcements spoke soon fast, you had to wonder if she is running a marathon....I could hardly hear her full sentences. One of the serving attendant was a tad patronising and slightly annoying. Like no one wants to listen to "innuendos" at that time of the night."
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Cons: "4 hour flight at dinner time. No food. What were they thinking? They ran out of sandwiches after the first row of passengers. Why even bother with menus when there is no food to support?"
Pros: "Staff were super friendly and welcoming"
Pros: "Everything was good, haven't used westjet in a long time as I live in the states now. Will use them as often as I can."
Pros: "The free drinks and snack"
Cons: "The check in kiosks couldn't read passports well so we had to go check in at counter and the two agents were not adequate because our wait was well over 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Very positive and smooth experience. Love the app and free wine!!!"
Cons: "None that I can think of. I recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and a plug for my phone"
Cons: "We were delayed ... was supposed to take off at 7:30 didn't take off until 9 .. I've sat on this plane longer than I was in the air"
Pros: "Quickest flight ever."
Pros: "Held up at YYZ for "lightning" beyond West Jet control."
Pros: "Flight left on time and staff were polite"
Cons: "PA system could be better"
Pros: "The crew and staff as a whole were very accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing to be honest was a great experience"
Pros: "It was a last minute trip, but I was able to bookwhat I needed fairly easy. I was given a lot of options as far as time and price."
Cons: "Sometime a lot of options can be a little stressful and/or overwhelming, but kind of expected with this type of booking site."
Pros: "Darim made my flight much more enjoyable and comfortable. Great flight attendant."
Cons: "I paid extra to select my seat earlier but my headset slot was not working and more than half the channels were not working anyways."
Pros: "Constant thanks from crew for the passenger patience with delays due to flight crew, and then weather delays - 2 hrs total Liked the captain came out to speak, clearly I might add, to explain the weather delays and provide updates..."
Cons: "Can't complain about what was beyond my control, but flight crew needing to come from another flight and then the other side of the airport to set up, resulting in hour delay - seems like alternative should have been available or system needs a process review to improve efficiency"
Pros: "The gate and air crew were very friendly. Flight right on time."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Everything was good Quick easy boarding Friendly air crew Love Westjet!!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "No on board entertainment. iPads did not work"
Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Cons: "Un necessary delays from start to baggage pickup"
Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "Bad weather came in n I was rerouted on Time"
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Small, loud plane with cramped seats. No hot beverage service."
Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."
Pros: "Did not use"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 4 times until we were unable to make our connecting flight. We were sent home to try again tomorrow. Meanwhile other flights AA made their connections. Total bullshit. I suggest they couldn't round up a crew."
Cons: "You are kidding."
Pros: "Being able to board early due to husband's disability."
Cons: "Only being provided a warm cup of water. Paid extra $$ for seating with no other liberties provided."
Cons: "There was a older Caucasian flight attendant that didn't have a name tag on that touched me twice on the shoulder"
Cons: "Delays when other airlines with same destination did not have them. The constant asking if is move seats. No means no."
Cons: "Took forever"
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Cons: "This experience has taught me to stick with Delta."
Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing exceptional. Pretzels and a bloody"
Cons: "Group boarding again"
Pros: "Nothing very unhelpful staff also very rude"
Cons: "How they sell a ticket without seats available?? Very unpleasant flight! I will never buy through kayak.com and never will flight with American Airlines again"
Pros: "Friendly crew. efficient."
Cons: "Disappointed with the "Hot Box" (Bean Burrito type) cold & never heated up but still served...unedible. Real shame - food just wasted...unnecessary and just adds to costs of flights at end of day :-/ Customs & Gate in Clt delay could have been handled better. Continuously told us we were deplaning and then silence...several times...very frustrating after 9 hour flight. Better communication and organization in customs would be appreciated Otherwise, crew was very polite and overall good job"
Pros: "Customer service excellence The flight attendants were very attentive"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary, which for plane flights is about as good as it gets. No delays, no scares, no extra inconveniences."
Cons: "It's a transatlantic plane flight, not anything I'd describe as a fun experience."
Cons: "Short flight, so food offering was little pretzels."
Pros: "Staff try ed not much they could do"
Cons: "Eventually arrived i. Raliegh after a full day or arranging and crazy stress. Not sure I'll fly American again."
Cons: "We lost our connection to Jacksonville"
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Pros: "The plane was very nice and very comfy. Not a whole lot of leg room where I sat (economy) but it was a cheap ticket so I can't complain."
Cons: "Overbooked flight made storing carryons annoying and hard."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. A six and a half hour drive took nine and a half hours by air."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "On a 10+ hour flight that you're trying to stay awake for, some sort of entertaining is near mandatory. Neither mine nor my boyfriend's TV worked. Even after the crew reset the system twice, they still didn't work."
Pros: "No one sat in the middle seat next to me"
Cons: "Seats and leg room are too small Had to pay to get the exit row"
Pros: "Planes boarded on time"
Cons: "Long wait on runway before take off"
Pros: "appreciated having enough room for my knees not to hit the seat in front of me"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was late, I was bumped out of my seats that I paid extra for. The seats we had wouldn't recline. Boarding was announced in 5 minutes so lines were formed and we boarded 35 minutes later as we had to wait for one extra cabin crew member. We got charged toe all our bags (see SWA). There was human waste in the bathroom."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "American Airlines is continually delaying flights. Impossible to actually plan around."
Pros: "I understand that the breakfast cookies are economical, and many people enjoy them, but can we add some variety or switch things up sometime, pleeeeease. My kids love the cookies. thanks Jesse"
Cons: "The cookies"
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Never again. I had a connecting flight with a one hour layover and almost missed it. The plane to charlotte was very late boarding. Once i land I rush to my gate because I only have 20 minutes before they start boarding ; I get to the gate and have to wait almost an hour. At this point I still havent eaten because I am waiting around by the gate and the attendants are not communicating any information. Then they finally tell us that the reason the fligt hasnt boarded was because the flight attendant misplaced her luggage in the previous flight and was waiting to arrive to the terminal. Now how is that my issue? American Airlines needs to do better!"
Cons: "Bumpy landing in Charlotte. But it was windy and raining."
Cons: "Return flight was delayed, gate changes unfriendly and unhelpful flight attendants"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Movies and music through individual seat monitors were a great idea.The Pilot on our way back was outstanding. He gave truthful and accurate information about delays, was always on the alert for warning us and staff about any expected turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was actual operated by American Airlines, so don't blame Finair. I had to call Finair for a question and they were polite and helpful. The crew on the plane on the flight from Charlotte to Rome were just mean, curt, and generally unhelpful. They did not collect trash or dinner trays for well over an hour after everyone had finished. The Italian gentleman next to us was so disgusted he got up and found the trashcan himself and refused to talk to the flight crew the rest of the trip.It didn't matter because they disappeared after dinner and no one saw them again for 5 or 6 hours. On the flight back from Rome the crew was nice but slack. They skipped all the back rows twice row 34 onwards) when they got distracted during a refreshment service. They also repeatedly told passengers they were out of a specific item on the cart but "you can go to the back and see for yourself if we have any".Customs is out of control. They refused to allow anyone off the plane for over an hour because they had another flight come in "from the islands". Then they yelled at us about calling relatives to let them know what the holdup was. It took 1 and 1/2 hours to get through customs because they made us use the new kiosks then go see a real person and answer questions there too."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was quick."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Pros: "My mother's attendants and the flight crew were very friendly and courteous to her."
Cons: "No information or communication about bringing your own food or snacks on board. No food, snacks,entertainment or immigration forms were available. There was some food for purchase but if you didn't have a credit or debit card then you couldn't buy it. My mother was in a wheelchair waiting to board in Toronto and would have bought food to either eat there or carry on the plane but another passenger was severely reprimanded for getting out of her wheelchair and going to the bathroom, so my mother was intimidated to stay seated and not go to the bathroom nor ask any questions as to if she could go and buy some food or snack to eat while she was waiting. Only juices were served. She was flying since 11 am and arrived at 9:30 pm without any food. The website as well as all emails should inform about luggage weight as well as food and entertainment. On a layover the attendants should be more cooperative with disabled passengers and allow them to use the bathroom as well as to go and buy food."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew, the food and the entertainment. The crew did give us peanuts for our extra 5 hours on the plane."
Cons: "We were 3 hours late for departure and took 2 extra hours in the air because of re-routing. The seats were abnormally stiff and went back so little that it was extremely hard to fall asleep during the 18 hours we were on board. The crew was unwillng to let us bring our instruments on board and thus, they cracked from the air pressure during the flight."
Cons: "Our flights were switched twice. Ended up paying for seats on an added interim flight to Chicago. Not good. Do not like surprises."
Pros: "Comfortable ride and on time"
Cons: "Compared to the flight over with Lufthansa, the food, drinks and treatment by the flight attendants was not nearly as good."
Cons: "Delays,multiple gate changes, poor waiting areas for express flights!!!"
Pros: "We boarded very quickly! The staff were extremely friendly and made our thirteen hour ride pleasurable. The inflight entertainment had a great deal of new shows and movies. The seats had a decent size and good enough leg room. The flight was smooth, and we took off at a good time. The food was fairly good as well!"
Pros: "GOOD LEG ROOM"
Cons: "THE FOOD STILL SUCKED."
Pros: "the flight was on time, without any delay, easy boarding"
Cons: "Food was very mediocre, also the variety of movies needs to be improved asap."
Pros: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."
Pros: "I enjoyed the pleasant crew and the constant water being given."
Cons: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. However it was unexpected that no food would be provided on a 5 hour flight. If not a small meal then a snack was expected. The crew did provide water consistently which was very nice. My personal entertainment screen was very unresponsive and then the head phone jack wasn't working for sound, I had to hold it at a certain angle to hear bits of sound. Since the head phone jack was located at my thigh it was very uncomfortable and when I shifted I broke my headphones :("
Pros: "Captain gave us regular updates"
Cons: "LGA closed for wind. We sat on taxi road for 2 hours. Crew could have served more than water while we waited. No AirCanada's fault but crew should have a plan to serve the snacks/ food if we are sitting for two hours and the total flight time is 1.5 hours."
Cons: "In flight movie wouldn't even go full screen!!! Had to squint"
Pros: "Free snacks , on board entertainment, friendly warm crew."
Pros: "I enjoy flying and being in the air at high altitude in any air line. Away from everyone else and with a new family who are flying with me."
Cons: "The charge per bag is ridiculous. It should be included as part of fare paid. Understood another bag charge as a separate fee."
Pros: "Tv in all seats, individual air controls, the crew was nice and I offered up my bag to go on the checked bags when asked and it was the first one out on the bagged claim"
Cons: "I'm 5'8 and my legs hardly fit when sitting straight in the seat"
Cons: "There was no access to movies."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "They oversold the flight and were unable to provide the services that were paid for months in advance. They didn't care just go wait in a line and then another. Then overestimate Canadian dollars and with exchange rate that was much less and they said they do this everyday."
Cons: "I paid in advance at a Fair for services they never intended to provide then they over less because of the exchange rate but mention the stress created at the end of a vacation."
Cons: "Overall good"
Cons: "The flight was late"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed a couple hours, customs was "full" at Pearson causing more delays"
Cons: "No complimentary small snack at all, must pay for everything"
Cons: "This was the worse travel experience I have ever had. The crew was rude and gave wrong information that caused me to almost miss my flight. My ticket in the end ending costing me over $600 for all the additional charges. It was ridiculous. Among other things. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "There is not one thing that was good about this flight. Bad plane, bad service, bad food. That sums it up. Will talk to as many travelers as I can to tell them to avoid this nightmare."
Cons: "No entertainment on board. No complimentary drinks. A piece of cold banana bread literally thrown on the tray for breakfast. Called the airline when reservation was made and told it would have entertainment and complimentary drinks. The switch to Rouge was a bait and switch. Rouge is from the 1970s. Long flights to sit and stare at the back of seat. Crowded seat at that. NEVER WILL FLY AIR CANADA AGAIN"
Cons: "I would like a flight map to follow the flight and have more information"
Pros: "simple and easy flight staff on flight were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "selection of movies was small. and the controls are on the armrest in a bad spot."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and polite, ensuring that the leg of our rerouted flight from Toronto to Frankfurt was comfortable."
Cons: "Not being able to complete my original itinerary as planned (see above)."
Cons: "gate was changed without an announcement flight was twice delayed"
Pros: "There were 2 pilots- the female one was polite and informative. We took off on time and even landed a little earlier than planned."
Cons: "Very noisy flight on a small plane. The flight from Hartford to Toronto was cold and others noticed it as well. The windows are all blurry. The sound of the engine blocks out the safety announcements!! It's a joke that they even have them. There is no beverage served. And for all this wonderful service you pay an outrageous fee!!!! I felt like I was in the back of a donkey wagon..."
Pros: "as above"
Pros: "I was concerned for seat comfort; my long legs fit fine and reclined sleep was comfortable. I was concerned about getting hungry; two meals kept my stomach quiet. I was concerned about sufficient distraction on such a long flight; the audio and video options are better than I've ever seen on the 767. Having just flown an Air Canada Rogue flight which was terribly cramped, uncomfortable and food-free with no form of entertainment I was worried. It turned out to be far better than expected."
Cons: "Perhaps I was fortunate but the experience was very good, no complaints."
Pros: "was forced to spend the night in Toronto because Air Canada didn't seem to know that there would be a huge crowd at the airport that evening. I was told as I exited my flight that I would not make the connecting flight and I had to spend the night in Toronto. I will never fly Air Canada again"
Pros: "The crew members in both the flights were amazing. they seemed like they enjoyed their job. Its not very common at Air Canada."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Toronto was delayed by half hour. But the boarding gate agents did not even mention the delay."
Pros: "There was nothing to like because I did not fly on Air Canada to Barcelona."
Cons: "For an unexplained reason, our first flight was delayed 45 plus minutes in Phoenix while cargo was moved from the forward cargo bay to the aft cargo bay. This caused us to miss our connection in Toronto. Air Canada then proceeded to rebook us on a flight leaving 2 days later. After an extended period of time, they finally rescheduled us for a flight to a different city in Europe and we had to catch another flight from there our final destination, Barcelona. The total additional travel time was extended by approximately 8 hours, causing us to lose the better part of our first day."
Cons: "My chair didn't lean back and the entertainment monitor did not work for about 2 hours."
Cons: "Lost my luggage no food only 1 juice' lost my luggage Robbed me (tsa toronto) of some gifts they thought dangerous"
Pros: "Comfy seat, good food, great attentive service and wonderful safe take offs and landings!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs without proper notification."
Pros: "It was fine. No frills, but that is what I expected. We arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "Had a delay Getty to the gate, but I think that was an issue from Charlotte airport."
Pros: "flight was mostly empty so I can go sit somewhere else"
Cons: "I am only 6 feet tall, and my legs do not fit in those seats there is not physically enough room between the back of the seat and the back of the next seat for my legs to fit there"
Pros: "The flight attendant was personable and made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "I couldn't get through security without my bag but they didn't have a way to let me know it was lost so I almost missed my flight waiting on a bag that wasn't coming. There should have been an announcement to come to the Air Canada desk. There wasn't. When I got to Charlotte, there was No One at the Air Canada desk to report my lost bag. Thank goodness those from United were able to provide me with a phone number to call. The phone attendant was not a native English speaker and made it incredibly difficult to file a claim. I'm still waiting for my bag."
Pros: "Extra leg room but paid for it."
Cons: "Very turbulent. Entertainment system was okay on iPad but selections were poor, lots of old stuff. Really dislike Rouge."
Pros: "I liked the Air Canada flight crew. They were all helpful and friendly. The flight was late leaving Toronto due to Florida weather issues and the crew did a good job keeping us informed and as comfortable as possible during the wait."
Cons: "Very little room in the seats. I am a man 5' 9" tall so I am average height. I barely had leg room and even less so when the person in front of me reclined his seat. Made the 3 hour trip feel a little uncomfortable. I miss the "back of the seat" entertainment system although the option through Air Canada's app worked fine,"
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my boarding pass even though I made it to the gate before boarding started and refused to put me back on the flight. Then they lost my bags. The Toronto airport is a mess - avoid it if at all possible."
Pros: "Despite the original delay with the flight boarding staff was efficient at getting us on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "The second part, from Toronto to Houston was the pitts. First of all they called me to the gate way before the boarding time and so I was a bit worried but when i got there there was nothing, they just confirmed I arrived from Montreal. This was strange and so I got a bit stressed as to why they had a called me and made me rush in the first place. Anyway, minor compared to the rest of the experience. The flight boarding was late, then an unscheduled stop in memphis for extra gas, then a tech problem that needed maintenance kept on on the ground. We finally made it to our destination 2 hours late. Most fellow passengers missed connecting flights and because we got out of the airport after midnight needed to get a cab to our accommodations. While I appreciate the attention to safety (and the curteous crew who obviously felt bad and were taking a lot of shit) we what was supposed to be a 3 hour flight ended up being 5 and there were no meals for sale,very limited snacks. We got one complimentary ,half can of juice and a bag of tiny bag spicy trail mix (labelled ranch) that i could not eat. After the delays we got an extra glass of complimentary cranberry juice. Which was amazing, but really did not cut it (from 5:15- midnight). By the end I was uncomfortable and starving! This was a radically disappointing experience in compared to the Ari Canada portion of the trip."
Cons: "Stewredess who did it did not apologise Had smelly shirt and wet jesns for 3 hours"
Cons: "Flight late, missed connection, lost luggage."
Pros: "Upgraded to 1st class for balancing purposes; flight attendants really friendly and professional"
Cons: "Flight movie didn't work"
Cons: "The pilot didn't show up. A replacement came 1 hour later. Horrible service. It seems that United is never on schedule. They also over booked the flight again........."
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Cons: "The flight was canceled and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Cons: "United delayed my flight so I physically couldn't make the next plane, furthermore they didn't compensate my expenses from my extended airport stay which was 12 hours"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled, we were then placed on another flight and when we got to the gate that flight had been cancelled also!"
Cons: "Flight delayed since the aircraft needed to get oil changed. Passengers were made to board and wait for this routine maintenance."
Pros: "When we finally landed after hours of delays"
Cons: "Absolutely everything about my United experience. The delays weren't communicated well, we sat on the runway for about an hour and the AC didn't come on for about 20 minutes. I'll never fly United again. My flight from CLT was supposed to take off at 3:30pm and we didn't take off until 10:30pm. Never again."
Pros: "Food was good, entertainment was excellent, comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was delayed several times and we didn't leave Denver until 7:43 pm and it was scheduled to depart at 5:19 pm"
Pros: "The flight was good and we arrived on time, despite the fact we left Denver late. Didn't buy any food."
Cons: "The Entertainment choices on this flight were lousy...I also didn't like the fact that I had to buy Economy Plus because my wife and I were not only not assigned seats together after booking, we were not assigned seats at all. When I booked the flights I was only allowed to choose seats for the first flight - Charlotte to Houston...but not for the other three legs of our Charlotte to Seattle trip. The only two seats together from Houston to Seattle were in the very last row. And, on our return flight we had to purchase Economy Plus in order to sit together."
Pros: "Not very many people on plane so we were able to space out more."
Pros: "Left on time and landed early"
Pros: "It was the worse. She is 80 years old. Had wheelchair assistant and the person who take care of her did no have idea where she was flying,"
Cons: "Thanks god after 5 hours one of the crew helped her to sit on the right area to take the flight to Charllote and contacted me ."
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Pros: "Everything was on time and we even arrived in Charlotte early."
Cons: "back of lane smelled like lavatory - ugh"
Pros: "Roomy space. Nice staff"
Cons: "Severe delays"
Pros: "Flight not full so had 3 seats to myself. Very cold in plane and again, no music or tv."
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Cons: "There was a guy that seemed to be a United employee but he was dressed in baggie jeans, a sloppy oversized shirt, had crazy unkempt hair and smelled bad. Not sure what his position was but he was walking the aisles informin us.the flight was delayed and was directing people where they could place their luggage....not a very professional representative for the aitline"
Pros: "At the gate while we were waiting for 3 hours the United Crew brought out snacks for us to have for free because of the wait."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours, and didn't get in until 2:00am"

Pros: "I was fine"
Cons: "boarding zones were off"
Pros: "Professional and timely"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Pros: "Boarding went well, Flight was smooth,"
Cons: "Not only the Gate, but the terminal was changed with out advance notice. I got to Terminal C- listed on my boarding pass, only to check the screen to find they switched to Terminal A, which meant exiting the terminal C and taking a bus to Terminal A. Only as I was boarding the plane did I receive a late text telling me there was a Terminal change. The flight attendants passed me by with the drink cart and never came back to service me"
Pros: "I was given TSA precheck which was great."
Cons: "I didn't get the seat I selected, rather the very last row next to the toilet. not the fault of United but hit terrible turbulence."
Pros: "To have better service and put on the correct timeframe"
Cons: "Never told and delayed 5 hours. I had to call United and they switched me to American ..."
Pros: "The flight ran ahead of schedule and the crew was polite and efficient."
Pros: "I appreciate the fact that caught the issue with the aircraft while it was on the ground."
Cons: "I don't appreciate a the fact that you made me late for church. Wouldn't have been such a big deal if i wasn't the church's organist."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Was able to watch a movie for free."
Pros: "Getting to Charlotte"
Cons: "Plane dirty. Windows dirty. Extremely bumpy. Seats clostraphobic. Sat too long leaving"
Pros: "First off - thank you for putting food back onto what you offer when people fly united. It's a drink and a small snack. It's not much to ask, so I appreciate them putting that back in. I also liked the wifi which allowed me to check where my flight was in the air for free. Overall, I will say united is much improved from where it was - though I'd appreciate some free entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit of a mess with our flight. We had a LOT of people on standby that were standing in the boarding lines because no one was communicating to them where they should be and where to go. This is something that should be worked on by them."
Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."
Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Pros: "Flight was not only on time, but early both ways."
Cons: "Gate change at Newark."
Pros: "Everything worked out just perfect"
Cons: "No snacks served"
Pros: "Kayak did a great job with updates."
Cons: "United has failed me once again. Delayed flights, no information, the crew didn't know a thing..didn't leave out until 2am and was suppose to leave ar 855"
Cons: "We were grounded for over an hour, no fault of United. Spent a half hour on the runway, it would've been nice to be told that before taking off."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."
Pros: "I requested a wheelchair. My foot is in a boot and I am not suppose to walk any distance on it. I was told there were only 2 wheelchairs and that they were for 2 elderly passengers. I passed 8 more wheelchairs that were not being used. Very rude airport employees. I had to use an escalator and almost fell."
Cons: "We had to get off the plane because of an electrical problem. I completely understand that these things happen but the worst part was dealing with United employees after getting off the plane. They didn't know what they were doing or how to deal with a situation like this. I waited an hour and a half to talk to someone about getting to my destination and they gave me a flight 5 hours later with a 10 dollar food voucher for the airport. Bad experience :( Ralph Nassif"
Pros: "The crew on this flight were extremely friendly and genuinely seemed happy to be there."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours, putting me home at 4:00 am, instead of my planned 12:30 am. At that point, I wish I had booked a flight for Sunday. I was stuck in the ohare airport for hours while stores and restaurants were closed, without wifi, and tired. Then I had to wait for my paid checked bag once I landed in Charlotte."
