Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."

Cons: "No food"

Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "The 1 hour delay"

Pros: "Flight was delayed due to a crew member needing to be substituted, but the crew handled it very well and were nice to us"

Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."

Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."

Pros: "Pilot apologized that the entertainment system was down. Then suggested we turn back 10 years and do it the old way by reading a book or magazine to pass the time."

Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."

Pros: "Nothing except the plane was able to fly!"
Cons: "Old plane: Old seats No entertainment screens need to rent a mobile device -> this is sooo out of touch with reality of standard flights that it is even embarrassing to mention or to write it! BTW: My fellow flight companions did make fun of this during the entire flight! Not good."

Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."

Pros: "The plane was very new. Had a great entertainment system. Power plug ins. USB plug ins. Seats were a bit small, but when are they not?"
Cons: "They forgot to bring me dinner then when I finally got someone's attention they told me they had given away ALL the dinners. How is that even possible? In the end they gave me a first class meal so not bad."

Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"

Cons: "There was no in seat screens for entertainment. Space was much more cramped than other Air canada flight we had. Knees were against seat in front. No snacks provided only drinks. Food was available for purchase."

Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."

Cons: "Flight got delayed over 1 hr"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was NO complementary food for a 5 hour flight. I didn't have a credit card to purchase anything"

Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."

Pros: "Everyone was nice and friendly,"
Cons: "They changed our gate 3 times, and delayed our flight an hour and a half. It was extremely irritating and time consuming."

Cons: "Seating for Econamy patron flyers has become disgustingly so close together that knees of person behind me kept jabbing me in my back. When person in front tilted his seat back I really felt cramped and felt like a sardine. I am not a tall person. I do have short legs. Maybe airlines should hereafter ban tilting the seats back."

Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."

Pros: "Great wifi ap entertainment feature"
Cons: "Being delayed twice- once for late passengers then for door problems"

Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "We were dehydrated and the flight attendants were stingy with WATER."

Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"

Pros: "We left a little late but the pilots made up for their lost time. We left around 8:40 and we still arrived early than the expected flight time"
Cons: "I thought the flight attendants could have been a little bit more polite when the spoke to guests.you can tell they we trying to make the boarding a speedy process, but their responses to passenger ended being rushed and short."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."

Cons: "AIR CANADA charged departure time after original reservation was made for our return trip to a later time that was inconvenient that resulted in a hardship driving for ( senior citizens) arriving home after a 4 hour drive from the airport to Ocala, FL.home arriving at 1 AM."

Pros: "Very smooth flight crew attendants very nice"
Cons: "There is no TV to watch movied"

Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Crew was nice and i jad a great flight"
Cons: "90% of the links for the movies were broken, had to watch some boring shows"

Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "I was rebooked so my new flight AC 705 was directed straight to Toronto. Only thing I disliked was that gentleman who was left at the gate for my original flight at 8:30am. He was rude!!!!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Cramped and very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Unable to buy food or drinks on plane without a credit. I don't have one !!!"

Pros: "Decent service."
Cons: "I paid 100$ for my seat, for more leg room. It happened that the seat next to me was unoccupied. I thought it would give me an opportunity to stretch out a bit to sleep on the Atlantic crossing. Another passenger's tv didn't work so one of the stewardess told him he could sit next to me. He got more leg room for free. I was cramped and could not sleep because of muscle spasm. The Legal age made it more comfortable but it is not worth 100$"

Pros: "I was very kindly provided an upgrade and seat beside was empty, it was a great flight. thank you!"

Pros: "The complimentary snack"
Cons: "That my seats were not together"

Pros: "Everything was as expected"

Pros: "Prompt departure and arrivals very good crew"
Cons: "The chair comfort"

Pros: "the free wifi for your tablet. Clerk for the broken luggage was excellent."
Cons: "Broke one of my suitcase."

Pros: "Its kind of ridiculous that u would take all that away and charge for baggage on top!!! We should be allowed at least one bag!!!! At least bundle all the expenses into our fare so we feel like u care about our flight!!! At least you're offereing us something more for our hard earned dollar!!!!! Come on Air Canada, figure it out!!! No meals anymore on any glights either? Wtf????"

Pros: "Staff was pleasent"
Cons: "Due to a back up at the airport I almost missed my flight and none of the staff seemed like they cared at all. And it wasn't just me, it was basically everyone who had to go through customs. Then we sat on the plane for two hours while they tried to fix the back door, and then refuel. There wasn't enough food on the plane for anyone, which I didn't think was proper after holding us up an extra 2 hours. Also no entertainment"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Late Cramped crowded Too hot"

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours, then upon arrival had to wait on tormac another 1.5 hrs. Just awful altogether."

Pros: "Everything was handled very efficiently, and although it was a commuter jet it was more comfortable than those I've flown on domestically."

Pros: "the price, but after experiencing such an awful client servicing, I would rather pay the $120 per person to fly with American Airlines"
Cons: "Firstly, our flights were changed and no notification was given. I logged on through Kayak, and no mention of flight being cancelled, so my family (including a 6 month old) showed up to the airport to our surprise we were there for over 5.5.hours. It took over an jour to check us in, as our carry=on bag was 1 pound over & we needed to shuffle things around, and it turned out my infant son was not registered in the Air Canada system. The gentlemen (wasn't so gentlemen like) in helping us. Very rude. To our surprise, the 1 lb luggage could have easily been pass through noting there were perhaps 50 people on flight. The plane was empty. On our return back from Montreal, we walked in 2.5 hours in advance to witness an Air Canada employee yelling at a passenger. I'm not one to complain but this was unacceptable. & she should be removed from her client facing position. In addition to this, I am all for young professionals however the flight attendant crew wasn't what I would consider a productive staff. It took over 2.5 hours for food & then water to be served. On a night flight, we would expect lights to be dimmed, this was not the case until 11:05 p..m. which lasted a whole 20 minutes as we prepared for landing,. Try putting an infant to sleep when lights keep flickering, & not to mention, they seemed to have loved the intercom. Its as if they were on it every few minutes with hourglass speeches. Overall, very disappointing. We tried AC from our regualr American as we had been frustrated with the latter, and prices were higher but after our holiday trip, I must admit AA isnt bad after all and the difference in price is well worth it. Saddens me when I would love to support a Canadian based company (being canadian), but cannot justify with the poor client experience my family and I just suffered."

Cons: "When we checked in we were told everything was on time. When we should have been boarding, we were told there was no pilot. That took just over an hour to rectify. When we finally landed at Lauderdale, we were told there was no gate - surely they would have known this when we took off from Ottawa!? We sat waiting for at least 45 minutes before having access to the gate. Beyond frustrating when we were already late and inconvienced!"

Cons: "Flight was extremely hot the entire way"

Pros: "Luggage was nowhere to be found for 12 hours. Had to go to the airport to pick up the next day. Luggage tracking web site is useless - it does not get updates at all. Very disappointed."

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: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive"

Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned properly. And it was restroom smell all over the mane during the boarding"

Pros: "The nonstop overnight flight was very good. We will for sure choose that again. Much better then daytime with stops"
Cons: "We didn't use food or entertainment, but rating option didn't give that, so it wasn't bad just not used"

Pros: "Crew was great, and apologetic for the takeoff delay in a red eye flight."
Cons: "the aisle seats on the plane had a narrower underseat space that my little boxy carryon wouldn't fit into--and it usually fits under any underseat storage...Luckily the passenger in the middle was willing to swap places."

Pros: "Flight was on time and the staff and crew were extremely courteous."

Pros: "Was on time and very smooth flight"
Cons: "Too many change of gate. I felt like i had to look out to make sure the gate didnt change"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Better food would have made my night"

Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "For my first time flying every thing was great. Crew was friendly. Flight was early. Ready to book another flight!!"

Pros: "Crew was smiling very polite even though it was a crowded flight to FLL and back to EWR."
Cons: "There were not one but two dogs on the flight which I had an allergic reaction to. Thank goodness I travel with extra allergy medication in my purse. The owner of the dog in front of me keep insisting the dog was hypoallergenic. What matters is my reaction or the person who is allergic reaction to the dog's dander even if they claim it's a hypoallergenic dog. Once I had a severe reaction on a United flight and the cat was no where near me, but the air is circulating so I has to take benadryl. There should be some consideration for people who have health concerns without making the customer feel like we are a problem."

Pros: "The service, no stress, fast and easy process. .."
Cons: "Nothing at all,everything went well. .thanks"

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Excellent choices, comparisons, easy to use, updates"

Cons: "Luggage trouble and space trouble for passengers. There was a barking dog on the seat next to me"

Pros: "Great captain. Bad weather conditions but made me feel safe. Had to pay for tv but that was ok. We were on the ground for almost 2 hours so I needed entertainment."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The free inflight entertainment was very good."
Cons: "I was very upset that the gate agent stated that the overhead bins were full and that I would need to check my carry on bag, which i did. However upon boarding the plane, there were multiple overhead bins that were actually empty. I do not appreciate being lied to by the gate agent and being forced to check my bag when there was plenty of overhead bin space available. Moreover, I waited for nearly 30 minutes for my then checked bag to come through the baggage carousel after deplaning. This is far too long to have to wait for a bag after a 5.5 hour flight, especially when it was a carry on bag I was forced to check despite there being ample room in the overhead bins. Very disappointing and unnecessary aggrevation. Additionally, there was some slight turbulence during the flight for which the captain turned on the seat belt sign and everyone was requested to return to their seats. A few minutes later there were still some people standing in the aisles waiting to use the restroom, at which point a female flight attendant came on the intercom and stated, "I will try to make this as simple as possible for you to understand..." She then carried on explaining in a very rude and sarcastic tone the safety reasoning behind asking the standing passengers to return to their seats. While her frustration with people not returning to their seats was understandable, her tone of voice and sarcastic demeanor was not professional, and quite unappreciated. My overall experience with United could have been much more pleasant but for these instances. I feel these couple of bad experiences could have been easily prevented which would have led to a much more enjoyable experience with United. Unfortunately, because of these things, I will think twice about flying with United in the future."

Pros: "Great service and flight."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for TV."

Pros: "The last row was really comfortable."
Cons: "The lines set up to let people onto plane were disorganized."

Pros: "United the worst.never again"

Cons: "Flight didn't actually take off. Terrible updates regarding flight status."

Cons: "pay for TV shows."

Cons: "Delayed departure"

Pros: "On time arrival and landed early. Wi fi and 110v available on plane. Complimentary beverage"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but the crew took it all in stride couldn't sleep"

Pros: "Not the fault of the crew They were transparent"
Cons: "Taxied then returned for mechanical issue Had to deplane and wait 3 hrs Text that gate changed Text that gate didn't change 2 hrs into 3 hr flight told that we had been re routed for a 4 hr flight due to weather 1 hr later told we have to land somewhere else to refuel Landed to refuel then told we have to wait to take off because the airport lost power in most terminals due to previous storm"

Pros: "I liked that it was a direct flight from DEN to FLL at a decent time of day."
Cons: "I don't like being in Boarding Group 4 all the time. I don't fly United as often as I used to, but still it seems I should be able to get group 2 or 3 occasionally. I often have to travel with my suitcase carry on and it's difficult to insure I will get on at a decent time to get a space. My husband who rarely flies, but has a United credit card, gets Boarding Group 2 every time. This is frustrating to those who travel United still but can't seem to get a break on the boarding. It discourages us from flying United because of this approach. Charging for bags and boarding in the manner they do does not promote efficiency in the boarding process and only frustrates customers and discourages people from flying United. Changing their priorities would help both efficiency and make them a friendlier airline."

Pros: "The flight was great but the flight was delayed almost an hour. There was. great cabin crew and we had a quick fligh despite the delay. I would fly with United again."

Pros: "Stuck on the tarmac 1 hr before and after flight"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, good landing even though the flight was delayed."
Cons: "The Denver based flight crew on this flight was a rude. They threatened to kick off someone with a dog on the flight and had a bad attitude overall. The flight attendants were very "short" with the passengers. It seems that the customer service side of the full fare airlines is decreasing. Also, my television on the seat back did not work, so I had to sit there in silence for the 4 hour flight."

Cons: "My original flight were CMH to ORD, ORD to FLL. First of all, it took 25.5 hours to get CMH to FL. Could not even landed at FLL, they send me at Tampa and I have to drive to Miami and took 5 hours after frying and waiting for 20.5hours. Finally, got in to Tampa, of course UNITED lost my laggege and they had no idea where it was. UNITED CREWS are not willing to help you. I am so tired to deal with UNITED and I do not recommend to my firends or family or anyone."

Pros: "The customer service"

Pros: "Nothing. My family and I were treated like second hand citizens"
Cons: "The way we were unfortunately treated. No one wanted to help us. Our flight left late from Ottawa and we missed our connection they were reluctant to help or offer to help us."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst customer service I've ever experienced with an airline. United should be ashamed. Flight canceled based on pilot being late from hotel, then late flight inbound, then weather. Next available flight wasn't for 48 hours later. No accommodations, compensation, or bags. Never fly United or in or out of Newark Liberty International."

Pros: "My airport and flight experience from Newark on Christmas Eve was excellent , no delays plenty to keep you entertained while you wait for flight , great stores and eateries . Would definitely choose the airline and airport again ."

Cons: "Next time I Would like To pick up my Seat, as soon as I buy the flight ticket."

Pros: "Flight on time very kind and curtious very nice"

Pros: "I had a very pleasnt experience except the seat rows were SO small and my seat didn't recline. I am only 5ft 4in and I felt uncomfortable. The woman next to me was cleary very uncomfortable. This was my first time flying United in a while and I will definitely avoid UA in the future for long flights."

Pros: "Really sucks to sit and wait and wait and wait without updates."

Pros: "Best flight attendants hands down"

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"
