Pros: "The technical aspects of the flight were fine. Boarding, the flight, and the aircraft. Very nice plane."
Cons: "The crew was not very friendly and it didn’t seem like there were enough staf for such a large plane. It took a long time to get our first meal, and the food was terrible in comparison to other flights, even other China air flights we’ve been on. We could not understand the English announcements as she was not a fluent speaker. I would probabalynavoid flying with China air again."
Cons: "The temperature inside the cabin was too hot! It was warm and hot enough that chocolate I bought at duty free before the flight was melted!!"

Cons: "Next time I have to check in on line before going back.because there was a long line up."
Pros: "Restroom was kept clean throughout the flight which impressed me"
Cons: "Sorry, I’m always picky about the thinness of the seat cushions, the meals, and the IFE. But I still rate China Airlines as the best affordable Chinese Airlines I’ve flown. And it’s super convenient that China Airlines flies out of Ontario CA now. ONT vs LAX. It’s a no brainer. ONT every time."
Cons: "It was overall good goong there, however my trip back from Manila to Ontario was cancelled due to employee strike and i had a 12 hr lay over in Taipei and diverted my flight to LAX and have to pay almost $100 for my Uber ride. I will have to ask China Airlines to reimburse my Uber expenses."
Pros: "Friendly staffs & price"
Cons: "Not much legroom for economy"
Pros: "The overall experience was great. The plane was clean and spacious. Entertainment and food was excellent. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "I did not like my seat as it was near the toilet which made my flight a bit uncomfortable. Possibly for those persons who do not sleep throughout the flight, more can be offered. Maybe the flight attendants can walk around more to check on passengers as it is A very long flight."

Pros: "Comfy 777. IFE screen is bigger than other planes. Facilities are newer. It seems to be quiter too."

Cons: "Entertainment selection movies could be expanded."

Cons: "$115 fee per surf board"
Cons: "The seats are too close together. If the passenger in front reclines his chair, there is no room to move around at all. It would be helpful to announce that passengers should recline their seats only during sleep time."
Pros: "Food, chair, and crew."

Cons: "Food was not that great. I expected more in premium ecconomy"

Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again!"

Cons: "seats were so uncomfortable.. felt like metal cups.. hardly reclined at all for a flight that goes over-night. Needs more comfort in seating."
Cons: "It delayed too long and lead to missing my flight from San Francisco to Boston, the line to immigrate was too long and just 1 hour connect flight due to the delayed in Taipei"
Pros: "The flight arrived early While the seats were too small, not overpacked on this leg"
Cons: "My bags didn't fit and the staff was blatantly rude. I have never been barked at that way before, especially to open a window shutter. No please or thank you, just barking it at you until it's complete. I thought I must have misunderstood until I said goodnight and thank you to the same woman and just literally just stared back at me looking annoyed and didnt say a word. Too many people on this flight. It felt like we were crammed in."
Pros: "Would recommend it!"
Pros: "I was provided an extra pillow upon request. All the flight attendants were friendly, nice and always have a smile on their faces. The airline counter in Hong Kong offers the special candy from Taiwan."
Cons: "There was no toothbrush/tooth paste provided on the return trip from Taiwan to Los Angeles. They didn't offer and soda from Los Angeles to Taiwan. The return trip was delayed from Hong Kong to Taiwan and Taiwan to Los Angeles. Both delays were only announced at the time of the original boarding time."

Cons: "Everything mentioned above."
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "I got 2 great meals on the flight there, the crew were all extremely helpful, and I got there right on time. It was better than most or all of the Delta flights that I've been on"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "I did not recieve an itenerary or reciept of purpose. This is very frustrating because it meant that I had to search for flight times and GUESS when my flight would leave. I'm very dissatisfied."

Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The crew was great and very friendly."
Cons: "Wifi would not work"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Nothing all excellent"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Always seem to be delayed"

Cons: "Wider seats, more leg room"
Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Pros: "súper comfy and got a seat upgrade due to my status so i looove delta. always on time and super friendly staff awesome.!!!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Los Angeles"
Cons: "3 small children put in the row behind the exit row kicking the seat backs and slamming the tray tables"
Pros: "Nice Airbus plane. Due to thunderstorm in Dallas, pilot not able to leave DAL to come to fly the plane in LAX on time. We delayed around 45 minutes. Otherwise, crews were professional and efficient. Excellent movies choices."
Cons: "Boarding announcement in SFO was bad. No one can hear what the agent announced. Random sequence of boarding with confusion. In LAX, we supposed to go to a different terminal by a bus. There is no guidance out of gate to assist passengers that transfer to get on the right gate on the right bus. In AUS, there is not any announcement for luggage belt. An announcement would be helpful to new arrivals to this airport."
Pros: "Arrives earlier than scheduled, no wait time on runway taking off or getting to gate after landing. Rare to not have these delays occur in some form every flight...excellent"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was a rare perfect 10/10"
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Pros: "The workers."
Cons: "The selection on an incorrect plane that didn't fit the docking port"
Pros: "Like the fact I could watch 2-3 movies. Love the gluten free options for snacks."
Cons: "All of the couples were not assigned seats together. I've never seen anything so stupid. So before the plane took off, about four of us ladies from all over the back of the plane stood up and each jumbled a bunch of seats like a rubix cube so the men could then get up and go sit with their wives."
Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."
Pros: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Was short and easy to get in and out of both airports"
Cons: "What ever happened to a free drink on international flights ?"
Pros: "Punctual departures. Adequate overheard space."
Cons: "Food was mediocre for a 5-6 hour flight. I expected a little bit more."
Pros: "First leg from San Diego was excellent."
Cons: "Arriving in SLC discovered out flight to Denver was CANCELLED! Had to reschedule to the next day. Not fun!"
Cons: "the older stuardess on my flight from Cancun to Atlanta was very misinformed- told me my carry on wouldn't fit in the over head bin... it did. Told me I had to check my duty free liquor.. I didn't. Told me I couldn't bring all of my liquor in to the US... I could. I just kept saying ok to her just to shut her up, but she ensued with her comments and wrong info as if I don't travel as often as I do. Perhaps she was attempting to be helpful, but it came off as obnoxious and rude especially since she was wrong on every accord. Humbleness and customer service training would do her very good. All other DELTA staff have been great."
Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flights on time Wi-Fi available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "Seats rather crowded in coach, small plane so it was also a bit noisy"
Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow and a few minutes late taking off but still made it on time"
Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The flight attendant was wonderful and was funny on the flight. Kayak kept me informed of all gate changes and delays."
Cons: "The Delta app did not update about any of my gate changes nor were they announced by the gate agents."
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Pros: "Tv on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "Time was made in the air and we did not miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "The flight was very late."
Pros: "Everyone was very polite"
Cons: "Too many seats hadn't been aside. It was an unnecessary wait in line for about 20 people to get their seat assignments."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We disliked that our baggage was lost and we do not have it two days later."
Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."
Pros: "They did give us the Dane snacks the first class passengers got."
Cons: "Zero additional leg room in this supposed comfort seat. The seat was very narrow and there was absolutely no additional leg room on the flight. I'm tall, so that's what I pay for when I book these flights and none was provided."
Pros: "at least, i got to Haiti"
Cons: "delays + long flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, fast & efficient."
Cons: "It should have been made clearer that we had to check in at Delta & not Virgin Australian . We waited 45 min. in a holiday line we didn't have to. It was also difficult to find Delta at the Sydney airport. It was hidden in the back. We shouldn't have to wait 30 minutes for customs to open at LAX at 6 AM. I didn't like having to pay $2400 for a ticket when you dropped the price after the Paris incident & I found the same ticket would have cost me only $869. I should be reimbursed the difference. I also don't understand why we had to wait till 10:15 to sit inside the gate area. Directions for boarding should have been clearer."
Pros: "Seats were too cramped up, legroom was a problem. A device was under the seat was cramping the leg room. The entertainment selection was very very poor for a long flight."
Cons: "Better entertainment selection."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The onboard entertainment were quite outdated selections. The seats are very small for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew were nice and the service very good. The layover was short."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost so we had to go back to the airport the day after. In economy class the Last 3 central rows or even more, have no carryon storage. We were stuck with our carryons for over 7 hours during the flight Montreal Munich. This is the case if you fly their new A350-390."
Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."
Pros: "Nice crew members. Even though it was a short flight, they served a snack and drinks."
Pros: "Smooth quiet flight."
Cons: "Mac and cheese isn’t what I was expecting for vegetarian."
Cons: "I missed the flight to Manchester due to delay in the flight to Munich"
Pros: "It was a short, smooth flight"
Cons: "I had paid extra to pick seats and they were moved without informing me prior to the flight."
Pros: "Baggage checked through from delayed overseas flight did arrive with us."
Pros: "Had a horrible experience on another airline the night before. Got this free that flight and booked with Lufthansa a few hours before take off. We were not sure what to expect but we’re pleasantly surpirsed with the entire experience. Definitely would recommend."
Pros: "friendly crew, got the meals we ordered, overall a smooth and uneventful flight"
Pros: "The amenities, even in Economy, were excellent. Plenty of good food and drink...included. On time departure/arrival."
Cons: "Our original seats, which we pre-selected for a $45 per seat fee, were changed, without notifying us. Fortunately, I discovered this and was able to get similar seats by calling customer service. I was told we qualified for at least a partial refund..we'll see if this happens."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Luthansa flight was very good. On time, and best quality"
Pros: "Excellent overall."
Pros: "Asked for an extra pillow - handed that straight away. Excellent food - loved every meal, both portion and quality. Boarding process was smooth too. Pilots are always great."
Cons: "Would have been nice to get upgraded to premium economy since they had seats available."
Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks. Economy class had to wait inside the plane while business class was let out and shuttled first because the plane parked out away from building and we had to walk down steep stairs and then ride a shuttle bus to the building."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I was upgraded to a better seat and the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Cons: "food seats were not equipped with personal TV screens"
Pros: "Crew attention"
Cons: "Seat size and spacing is at an absolute minimum level even for small people."
Cons: "Not there. Still in germany"
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptional in handling a medical emergency on the flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa bumped us from our preassigned seats. We purchased our tickets five months in advance to ensure our family would sit together. When we arrived, they had our family of five sitting in three different rows. Two of our young children had to sit alone, eight rows away from the nearest parent. After telling them we would not board sitting apart like that, they moved us closer together but still separate from two of our children. Highly disappointed."
Pros: "The services provided by United were good, although we were delayed due to mechanical issues. However, we were kept informed and made comfortable."
Cons: "I did not know when I booked through Lufthansa that it was a United flight, so I could not check in online and I was not able to order my gluten-free meal. Also, since it was Lufthansa, I was not able to download the entertainment system onto my portable device because I did not know I needed to."
Pros: "free upgrade to business class :)"
Cons: "the food was not kosher chicken with milk at the first flight the past was owerfull"
Cons: "They misplaced my oversized luggage even after I paid the overpriced $100 fee (87 euro cash only) for a 2nd checked bag. It was not defined by weight or size, but a straight fee of $100 for any kind of extra bag"
Pros: "everything was amazing,i love this airlanes end every year fly with them! Thanks!"
Pros: "Both of our connecting flights were delayed thereby causing us to miss our final flight to LA. Now we are back in Munich where we started, waiting for a flight tomorrow."
Cons: "That we were told on the flight from Düsseldorf to Frankfort we would make our connecting and after running from Terminal A to Z, and seeing the plane on the Tarmac, we were told we were too late. And then the service associate at the Frankfort Lufthansa was incredibly rude, unhelpful and inaccurate."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. Friendly, efficient and professional. I upgraded my seat for more legroom and it was simply amazing."
Cons: "Nothing to report :)"
Pros: "caring attendants"
Cons: "some food"
Pros: "The Lufthansa flight was great. The food and drinks for 1 hr and 45 min was satisfactory. The airplane was clean and crew was friendly. Too bad only 10% of the flight was gone by Lufthansa. The rest was done by United Airlines. The airplane was new and clean, the crew was friendly as well.The food at UA was so cheap it is a shame. On the domestic leg they give you 5 fools fish or crackers and soft drinks for 4 hrs flight. At the same time each and every passenger was asked personally if he or she will buy breakfast making the person feel guilty if not buying breakfast."
Cons: "Lufthansa is good. UA food is cheap and not enough on the Trans Atlantick flight and hard liquor is not free. On the domestic flight they do not give you food even if the flight is early in the morning and 4 hrs long. That is a shame. Moreover they try to sale you a breakfast package that is design not to get spoiled for three months. The nutrition value of that package is zero even I believe it is bad for you. This is only in the USA. It is a shame how our Airlines treate the American passengers."
Cons: "Flight may have been overbooked. Very confusing boarding/seating arrangements."
Cons: "I couldn't use the entertainment pack because I didn't have it downloaded on my iPad. I was told to download it when we boarded onto the plain. But at that point i couldn't access wifi. The 7-hours flight could have been more memorable if I could access the entertainment pack."
Pros: "Landing was very smooth! Loved being able to go downstairs to baths b/c it was a chance to move!"
Cons: "AC was broken for the first 30-45min. It was quite hot with all of the people stuck on the plane. Luckily, the pilot was able to use the plane's engines to create AC."
Cons: "delay on boarding time-problems with the aircraft"
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "It was delightful to discover that Lufthansa serves delicious complimentary meals! So few US airlines do that. I also really liked the layout with the toilets downstairs."
Cons: "Flight delayed and lost connection. 2 hours for rebooking"
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean."
Pros: "When we fly Trans Atlantic, we always hope it will be with lufthansa! Sometimes they use united as a carrier and it us never as good as lufthansa!"
Pros: "crew was friendly and professional. Flight was on time."
Cons: "being bused isn't very nice. Frankfurt airport arrival experience is quite ugly."
Cons: "The food was really disappointing... First time flying on lufthansa. Heard a lot of good things about it. Flight was ok overll but rather disappointing compared to what i heard"
Pros: "I was impressed by the entertainment selection in economy. Also they always had a vegetarian meal for me. The crew on the flight team were always super professional & very pleasant. I enjoyed my flights more because of them."
Pros: "Flight and flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. No indication on where priority line was. Announcements totally ununderstandable."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and boarding was quick"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating but all three of us passengers were very close together, Thank goodness we were all considerate of the other."
Cons: ", Thank goodness we were all considerate of the other.Just need a little more elbow room for a comfortable flight."
Cons: "The plane was cold. The entertainment was mediocure. The staff was telling the people to get in their seats quickly as they had missed their scheduled time for take off. Yet, they 1st said we would board a little late because og clearing out the previous flight. And, no one could get carry-ons above their own seats and had to go back to then come forward. The attendants should monitor better what is brought onboard. I thought they were rude. And it took almost an hr to get our luggage at the carosel."
Cons: "Very old cramped plane. I actually overheard the airplane say that it was tired and wanted to be replaced with one made in this millenium..."
Cons: "Delay of 1 h at Philadelphia to Syracuse !!"
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"
Cons: "INTERNET is difficult to figure out in these AA flights"
Pros: "We finally got here."
Cons: "Communication about the delay , which gate we were leaving from, having an entertainment system that worked (they said I could use my device with the app downloaded, but it did not work, I kept getting an error)."
Pros: "The plane was uneventful. The AA crew and employees at DFW were rude, unhelpful, uncaring, and showed extreme disrespect to my disabled Veteran husband."
Cons: "The AA crew and employees at DFW were rude, unhelpful, uncaring, and showed extreme disrespect to my disabled Veteran husband. We will NEVER visit DFW again. We were treated with disrespect and rudeness. My new name for this airline is UNAMERICAN AIRLINES."
Pros: "Not much crew stayed in back almost the whole 6 1/2 hr flight and seemed not to friendly"
Cons: "It would have been better if they had departed when they said they were going to after a delay. Flight was delayed first 1 hr then two more hours. The airline finally posted that it would depart a 4 PM and we didn't even start boarding until 5PM. Then they tried to rush us on so that everyone was standing on the HOT jetway for 10 min waiting to get on the plane. Plane didn't take off til 5:35 PM. Over all on this trip I had three flights that were delayed. I'll think twice before taking American Air again."
Cons: "Feeling of being cramped"
Pros: "Seat, legroom, nice choice of movies."
Cons: "Crew was stingy with booze. Delta is generous with it. This crew acted like they were paying for it."
Cons: "It ridiculous how small the seats and aisles are. It not fun flying any more"
Cons: "The wifi was out so I was unable to do what I needed to do and I was unable to stream music"
Cons: "Seats could have been better and inflight entertainement missing"
Cons: "Entertainment is becoming too complicated for us old heads. Food, I still resent having to pay for something that is ed to be included in my fare."
Pros: "Quick flight. Took longer boarding than air time!"
Pros: "Must wider seats on this aircraft"
Cons: "Inflight monitor broken"
Cons: "the seat space just to tight not any leg room on long flight"
Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was smooth and we had absolutely no problems"
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "I like the in-flight attendants as they are courteous even though it was late night flight. I cannot complain at all."
Cons: "Gate agent refused to try to put my 9-year-old son to sit next to me. She said "It's full flight" right out of the bat. Well, even if that's the fact of the matter, at least, be kind in responding to customer's inquiry. My son was seated across the isle, same row, but in reality the row was not even straight. And as a little boy, he cannot sleep straight and he has to lean to a stranger's shoulder? Thankfully I got a nice gent who should have sat next to him who were so kind to exchange seat with me. It's all in the attitude.... hopefully my attitude is not as bad :-) But maybe the gate agent was so tired for it was the last flight from ONT, at 1 AM. Bless her heart! Thank you though for your help to get the plane leave on time.!"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "I don’t like having to pay for luggage or upgraded seats, WiFi. All money makers. Wish every airline could be like southwest."
Pros: "The staff at Ontario International was very helpful."
Cons: "No real complaint of the flight or staff. Next time I will upgrade my seating."
Pros: "Everyone was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."
Pros: "Nice and clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "No outlet to charge devices"
Pros: "Boarding was good only because I skipped to the head of the line to get all the way to the back of the plane without having to wait in the aisles for others to get situated or hold anyone up (as no one was going further back than I). Staff was pleasant, did what they could with what they had. I was very happy that the back of the plane was not very full and I was able to lie down on the floor to nap for a couple of hours."
Cons: "Entertainment was miserable. Not much to look at on the screen and the sound quality was so miserable that I could not enjoy the decent classical selections. I was frustrated by the merry-go-round visual of our plane en route to our destination and wished I could have gotten the simple clear images that were being shown at the front of our cabin. I am sorry that the only vegetarian meal is Asian, as some Asian spices give me a belly ache."
Pros: "The video screen on my assigned seat was broken so I moved to a seat where there was no one else in the row of, do I had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Pros: "AA canceled my flight to sell to others for more money."
Cons: "The plane never cooled off for the entire flight"
Pros: "Prompt and effective"
Cons: "limited space and comfort for such a long flight."
Pros: "Everything was great to me"
Cons: "The flight was packed"
Cons: "Our flight was about 50 minutes late in boarding. American should have announced why it was late and an approximate time"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Gate agent told me my bag would fit under seat but when I got on board found it would not and had to do gate check."
Pros: "Premium space"
Cons: "Sporadic communication from flight deck on the nature of 2-hour flight delay. Initially we understood that dispatch was the issue because of fuel for the flight. Next, it was a weather delay followed by an apparent ground stop."
Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."
Pros: "State of aircraft was great. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Gate information for flight was not posted on monitors in airport. Boarding was disorganized, required transferring onto a bus and later onto plan. Flight take off was delayed. Flight arrival was delayed by 50 minutes."
Pros: "Im still waiting to get on a plane..."
Cons: "Since TSA took so long I missed my flight by 5 minutes. Then I was put on standby. Ive been at the denver airport for 10 hours and the plane i was going to get on has mechanical problems so the flight is pushed back until 7am tomorrow. Ill have been at the denver airport for 26 hours and then i have to wait on standby again in Dallas. Who knows when I'll actually get home. American airlines is not even offeri6mg any vouchers or anything. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "Great service, good food, even had an ice cream break. Awesome."
Cons: "Gate assignment was 45 minutes from the check-in area. Would be nice to have that heads up a day or two earlier. We had enough time but the extra time that we thought we had built in."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "Just wish the bag checked staff would've been more polite"
Pros: "Entertainment only"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and inconvenience was miserable. Unacceptable service from American Airlines, and consistent with others have experienced as well. Will not travel with AA again."
Pros: "Finally upgraded planes on this route. Dreamliner was very comfortable."
Cons: "Hour and a half delay for a scratch on a cargo door. Glad safety is a top priority but it must have been more this just a scratch."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything is too cramped. The sound on the entertainment unit is terrible."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Ground attendant at LAX was helpful and understanding at least..."
Cons: "Everything else. For starters, I purchased a ticket from LAX to Kiev with a 2 hour stop in Toronto. AIR CANADA never informed me I'll need an eTA and I had to do it under pressure of missing my flight at the airport. Connection was awful as well. My luggage never arrived to Kiev...."
Cons: "The flight did not wait for me due to the 1st flight delay."
Pros: "Empty plane"
Cons: "Not being 3 hours late"
Pros: "Having the few inches of extra leg room in economy plus is very nice, and we got one alcoholic drink included in the extra fare paid. The crew was courteous and friendly. I did not use the entertainment system."
Cons: "Even though we were traveling with our small dog in cabin there's no pre-boarding to make settling in easier as there is with the competition. I could not check in on-line like I can on WestJet because of my "special service" request (small dog in cabin for the usual $50 charge) Also for the extra money paid for the"upgraded economy plus ticket" there's not a sandwich or even a snack included as there is on the competition."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from Honolulu. This made Customs and Screening stressful...as there was only 45 minutes to get through and then to the gate. No one advised that there was another plane shortly, which would have reduced the feeling that we had to sprint down to the gate. Otherwise a very good flight"
Cons: "Both Air Canada flights were late The agent responsible for boarding was an angry person"
Pros: "While I've ranked the crew as poor, that isn't a reflection of the entire crew. The flight crew and check-in team were fine, the boarding I have as mediocre due to delay, but I don't put that on the staff."
Cons: "My issues are two part: 1 - I wasn't informed that I was required to retrieve my luggage from the carousel on this flight from George Town to Toronto. I thought perhaps I missed something, however, the three other couples that were in the same predicament I was weren't aware either. This caused a massive headache, the instructions were superbly poor on how to retrieve the luggage, and the process was completely a waste of time. We had to talk with three different people, the person that took us back to the carousel showed no urgency despite us all explaining that we were on a short layover, and might miss our next flight, and even though we had our passes to get through customs, we were made to wait in line to have our baggage inspected. A completely broken process that could've been avoided with a friendly reminder at check-in. 2 - Once I was able to retrieve my luggage I picked it up off the carousel only to find the handle on one piece of luggage had been ripped off, and the plastic lining on the other bag was destroyed. Admittedly I find this to be no surprise after seeing how mine and everyone else's luggage was handled so poorly upon being loaded into the cargo. I saw my luggage being tossed 3-5 feet into the cargo area - literally picked up, and with complete disregard flung like it was a trash bag being thrown into the dumpster. Since I didn't have time to discuss this with any staff due to my prior issue and being unable to find a representative once I landed back in Vancouver, I called the next day to discuss this over the phone, but the representative explained that I was only able to make a complaint in-person at the time of baggage retrieval. The person was absolutely useless and unwilling to help. This was by far the worst treatment I've had at any time in my life while flying any airline. The trip to George Town was with American Airlines, and even though it was longer, and a tad bit more expensive, the service I had with them was stellar by comparison to my experience with AirCanada. Going forward I will only be using AC when there are absolutely no other options."
Cons: "Person sitting next to me brought on four bags and over head bins were full. This merged into my space which is too small to begin with. Boarding should control how much is brought into plane. Need more space. Airline travel is no longer fun. I wish the air line CEOs would ride in economy every once in a while."
Pros: "We landed early, had a smooth flight, and the overall experience was excellent."
Cons: "I still feel as though it’s a bit of a rip off to spend $800 per person on a 4 hour plus flight and not even get a free snack... Also, the headphone sockets in both directions were woeful, and required a lot of movement to get sound clarity."
Cons: "Air Canada knew we were going to miss our connection, as the flight was delayed over and over, yet the staff on the ground insisted all connections would be made, there had been no missed connections all day. As soon as we got to Montreal, we were told due to ice in Montreal Air Canada had been cancelling flights and many connections couldn't be made all day. By that time it was too late to call Vancouver and set up alternative plans for the following day, which is when we would finally leave Montreal."
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "Sadly both legs of my flight were delayed . Runway issues in Vancouver. Weather issues in Calgary ."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Almost no"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Cons: "Food, what food? Boarding with no seat selection. No space inside for hand luggage."
Cons: "More a problem with Toronto Airport then Air Canada. However, the planes do not have enough room for comfort."
Pros: "the team helpful"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."
Pros: "We received generous vouchers, when our flight was delayed prior to its cancellation."
Cons: "The only disappointing thing about our flight was the cancellation without warning and explanation. We then had to work to get on a new flight as some of our party were not automatically re-booked."
Cons: "Nice flight. A bit of delay, otherwise everything was fine as always :)"
Pros: "Enough empty seats that I could lay out to sleep. The price was very reasonable."
Cons: "Hard to believe in 2017 an airline can offer a 9-10 hour flight without any in-flight entertainment system."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment system in the headrest was very robust. My children remained engaged for almost the entire 16hr flight...the flight attendants were not stingy with the food or drink and even allowed me to get a beverage in-between the services to take my medicine."
Cons: "The baggage pickup in Beijing took forever! Over an hour after arriving at the baggage carrosel! My car seats were in two different places (on the belt and in an oversize area). On a minor note, I was unable to get a stamp in my passport after using the automated machine...sad...I would have stood in the line to get the stamp if I was told ahead of time..."
Pros: "Very accommodating with my seating requests; very kind staff and nice new plane"
Cons: "Got delayed in toronto for 24 hrs and there was a lot of waiting and disorganization"
Pros: "Crew on the flight were very patient, understanding and friendly. Ground staff were the exact opposite. Agitated, temperamental and unwilling to help or find solutions."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Not necessarily the crews fault. But frustrating as our flight both to and from Washington was delayed both ways."
Pros: "Overall I enjoyed the movies provided. In the three week span I had a lot of the movie choices overlapped. However, I found that there were many options provided that allowed me to find movies I had not seen yet even though they were not released within the past 3-5 years."
Cons: "I felt like I was constantly being bumped sitting in the aisle seat. I also was not a fan of the breakfast options."
Cons: "Crew service"
Pros: "We were delayed a little over an hour (on the field) before take-off because of information from Toronto that fog was delaying the landing time of the planes. The crew handled this excellently by making sure that we were made comfortable and the pilot gave us several updates as he got the information about take-off for Toronto. On the flight to New York on September 28th, I experienced my first landing where not even a tiny bump was felt when the plane touched the ground."
Pros: "We were able to switch to an earlier flight. gate agent was very helpful"
Pros: "Food included, beverage and entertainment selection."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Rude people on board, crew didnt do anything about this."
Pros: "The flight got me there safe and sound"
Cons: "I don't understand why I had to pay extra for seat selection when I booked the flight. I don't think this was explained at all. I think Air Canada can give a little bit more than a small cup of soda."
Pros: "Boarding was efficiently handled"
Cons: "Very delayed flight with everyone ON the plane. Tiny seats in coach - very cramped Also food not very good."
Cons: "1hour 32 min late departure flight from Miami Missed my two conection to budapest, arrived to my destination 8 hours late. Airlines lost my luggage . I missed all my bussines meeting huge lost for me."
Pros: "New interior felt clean and the new entertainment system felt responsive with a large amount of movies and shows to view"
Cons: "seats were very hard with reduced legroom after you recline. Lavatories were far and few. Food was mediocre with 3 meals, I had to ask for extras."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Air Canada didn't provide hotel accommodation for missing connection. Only reimburse C$100 for hotel stay. The cheapest hotel found near the airport cost C$185. Only gave us C$10 per person for meal. We'll never fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "Was disappointed that there were no food/snack options on a 6-hour international flight. Also no pillows or blankets on a redeye"
Pros: "I liked that the head rests bent so I could rest my head on something"
Cons: "There is not a lot of legroom back in the economy section - I'm 5'7" and I kept hitting my knees on the back of the seat in front of me, so if I was any taller that would have been very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The plane was up and down twice when it landfall."
Pros: "The crew at the gate and onboard were exceptional! At the gate they made sure I could get on this flight even though the computer auto booked me for 2 days later."
Cons: "My bags didn't make it on the flight because of a close connection. Then I was rebooked on a flight 2 days later. This is unacceptable. I was expected to stay in Toronto for two days."
Pros: "Glad for this new route. Will make Europe easier to access from PDX."
Pros: "One of the stewardess is really cute and she speaks French"
Cons: "The cabinet temperature is ridiculously low and they only offer a thin blanket"
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: "Overall fair experience"
Cons: "Would have liked if the crew was a bit more friendlier. But they were professional for the most part."
Pros: "Despite the crew being on strike, the only attendant on board did an excellent job of handling everybody's needs."
Pros: "nothing was overpowering good, just an average flight there & back"
Cons: "the entertainment system was terrible"
Pros: "crew is excellent"
Cons: "small space"
Pros: "Comfortable and large plane with tvs"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were polite, efficient, and took care of business. The plane was nice, reasonably clean, and we were kept well informed."
Cons: "The In flight entertainment system had an extremely poor music selection. There were only one to three albums per genre, none of which I had heard of before. Music doesn't take up a lot of data, and there are tons of independent artists who would be willing to put their music up for little to no royalty payment. This is an easy fix. 2/3 of my bags were left in Toronto."
Pros: "Someone from the previous flight left a handle of whiskey and I kept it"
Cons: "The food besides noodles in a cup was not that good"
