Airline reviews

Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"

Pros: "It's a direct flight."
Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"

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."

Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"
Cons: "You should offer free wifi! Air Canada should lead the way and be above the rest!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to provide a good service."
Cons: "Wider seats and more leg room. The return trip from Ottawa to Vancouver was over $1200. I think that’s quite pricey given that any food or alcoholic beverage had to be purchased at an extra cost."

Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"

Pros: "The 777 is excellent. Service very friendly. Food is good. One leg flight is super good"
Cons: "Apparently the pilots are allowed to smoke on these long flights. In this trip it was not bad but on previous flights it was really bad"

Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"

Pros: "short pleasant experience"
Cons: "baggage check is always complicated .they make a big deal over small items"

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and then without notice back on schedule and the we boarded and sat on the tarmac for an hour. Why board us if we can’t leave?"

Pros: "Breakfast was excellent"
Cons: "TV screen were too dark"

Pros: "Take off take off and landings were on time or early."
Cons: "I could not find the AC outlet that was supposed to be there. I only noticed under the seat When deplaning."

Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"

Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."

Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"

Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
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."

Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."

Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."

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."

Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."

Pros: "Normal flight, short, nothing special about it to mention."

Pros: "Rouge flights are not comfortable no room for your legs and on a four and half flight very uncomfortable. Soft drinks are free but not even a bag of nuts."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not so bad..."

Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was broken which for a 5.5 hour flight is quite difficult. The only compensation the air flight attendant offered was a glass of wine,which I couldn't drink due to being on medication. I had purchased 3 meals and 2 snacks so she could have comped one of them. This is the second time I experienced this on Air Canada with little to no appropriate service recovery. I had my iPad~an offer of free wii fii would have also been an option"

Pros: "It was a short flight and there was entertainment on board."
Cons: "Missed my original flight due to the delay in the flight from Newark. Had to be placed on standby and this was the third available flight to Toronto I got on. Boarding took forever for some reason. People were in line for at least half an hour so they gave out free earphones to compensate. Otherwise you'd have to purchase it."

Cons: "Air Canada staff appear to wear their job dissatisfaction on their sleeves. They don't smile enough and often when they do its to each other like there's an inside joke we don't know about."

Cons: "On a 4+ hour flight, I was really surprised that there were no snacks or food included in the ticket; only paid "cafe" options."

Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."

Pros: "The entertainment system was fine as far as selection goes."
Cons: "The stewardesses were slow in doling out beverages, so much so that they didn't even get half the plane. As well as I was told they don't do free snacks on the linger flights and this being a shorter flight and should have therefore given out pretzels or whatever."

Cons: "Crew were very rude"

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."

Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"

Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."

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

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: "Very slow service"

Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"

Pros: "Movies!! Newer plane too."

Pros: "Staff mice"
Cons: "Delayed , causing delays and missed apt at destination"

Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"

Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"

Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."

Pros: "Good job"

Cons: "Make sure you bring your own device for entertainment"

Cons: "Better snacks"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."

Pros: "Worst experience I’ve ever had traveling and I travel a lot. United needs some better works and to compensate for my 14 hours of sitting in the airport for no reason."
Cons: "Everything that happened was completely shitty...."

Cons: "No entertainment."

Cons: "Seat was insanely small"

Cons: "Asked which sandwich was most popular, burger or chicken, and flight attendant told me she was a vegetarian. Diet Coke had one small ice cube."

Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped seats - no leg room (unless you want to pay much more). I'm 5'10 on a good day, so I don't know how someone 6'+ can sit in the back 2/3 of the plane."

Pros: "Comfy seats. Flights on time. Free pretzels."

Pros: "Outstanding that United Airlines finally has allowed for complimentary use of built-in entertainment system; i.e. Direct TV without charging passengers. That is good business sense - congratulations on a good PR decision. Haven't complimented UA in long time, but this is about time to say "thanks!""

Cons: "Cold, not enough space for carry on"

Cons: "Never enough food selections"

Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"

Pros: "Service, space, and staff of course!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cut one hour and took off when I made chek in they gave another ticket I was supposed to arrive 6 pm in my destination I arrived 11 pm and they were very very rude when I tried to complain about it! United no more!!!"

Cons: "Baggage was lost."

Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"

Cons: "Couldn't make"

Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."

Pros: "Quick, smooth"

Cons: "I was forced to check in my carry-on bag (and pay). My flight was delayed and therefore I missed my connecting flight. I was unable to change seats, and the United staff were I accommodating to assist with the "Basic Economy" fare."

Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."
Cons: "Delayed after boarding because of a technical issue and then after waiting over an hour we had to deplane and board another plane in a different terminal. That was a bummer"

Pros: "On Time!"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Delayed luggage"

Cons: "Gate attendant had a snide attitude and made a joke about the possibility that a Samsung 7 could cause an explosion in flight over the intercom. Very unprofessional."
