Pros: "Can i request for a food that us not pork? I don't eat pork nor shrimp, i will be traveling on the 5th of January again and i don't want that we will be starving again for the second time since last time we never eat for they don't have anything substitute for pork. Hope they will serve some chicken or beef for not everyone will eat pork and to starve while on the plane is not acceptable for we paid for it. Thanks"
Cons: "More regional movies for India"
Pros: "The whole service went smoothly without rushing."
Cons: "The original flight I listed for was canceled without any notification until I arrived at the checkin desk."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Pros: "All no!"
Cons: "Seats are too close!"
Pros: "Hardware was excellent. One of the most comfortable First Class seats for sure."
Cons: "CX first class is designed more for individual travelers so for couples who want to sit beside one another there will be an aisle in between them. The Boston BA lounge is horrific and depressing so it should be avoided."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food Crew"
Pros: "Plane from Hong Kong to Chicago was full but the crew did their best to meet everyone's needs. The food was very good."
Cons: "Tried to check in online but the system would not allow me to submit my data. So check-in was not as smooth as it could be."
Cons: "Seating at the gate is strange. They just have people line up in any order and board them in that order. People run to form the line. Totally ridiculous. Food was awful. I have no idea what to even call the items they served. Audio jack was literally being held together with tape! Loose connection."
Cons: "Not sure why we left and arrived so late, but it was annoying to miss the last flight out of Vancouver to my destination and have to find a hotel and stay the night. I guess lesson learned on expecting flights to always be on schedule. Sometimes things happen and they’re not."
Cons: "My seat would not recline."
Pros: "Service, Luggage handling"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, Boarding was haphazard, Food was ok at best"
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."
Pros: "Very efficient and courteous, a pleasure to fly with your airline."
Cons: "Don’t change anything!"
Cons: "Everything is fine"
Pros: "I am a wheelchair user and Cathay Pacific took excellent care of me"
Pros: "CX882, seat 44k would not recline. Made my journey a bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "Crew not helpful or particularly friendly not sure if it was because we were not Chinese!"
Pros: "Can't say anything was better or outstanding."
Cons: "Attitude of Crew Manager - Ms Jacky. She thought of me STUPID who did not know how to use touch screen of personal TV. My personal TV's touch screen wasn't working so I complaint to stewardess, who asked her manager, Ms Jacky to come, she resent the system which worked and then stopped again. I again complaint but by the time Ms Jacky came the system started working again so she said "I did not know how to use touch feature. I was touching it too hard."
Pros: "The flight attendants in the airplane, both going and coming back to my destination were very nice. I really appreciated their hard work and attentiveness."
Cons: "At the HK airport the lady attending the check in, I believe her name is Tammy, I could not understand exactly what she was asking me to do because her voice was so low and her English was not clear. When I did not comply to what she was asking she very rudely did what she was asking me to do yet I could not hear or understand her. She even rolled her eyes. Very uncalled for and rude."
Pros: "Overalll the flight was okay and the company crew is very helpful!"
Cons: "The only problem is if you need to go in the first flight at 6am to Hong-Kong.... they will only open the check in at 4:30 and usually you find a big waiting line. You won’t have time to do anything stead check in, go directly to inspection, after to migration to finally go straight ahead to the gate to hopefully have time to enter in the flight... to tide"
Pros: "Seats had good headrests with adjustable "wings" to cradle head while sleeping. USB plug below entertainment screen."
Cons: "A good half the plane was first class and business class. (This was a 15 hour Hong King to Boston flight.) They handed out a fancy menu with 4 entrees but by the time they got to economy only pasta was left. We did at least get a small bottle of water; on our outgoing flight they doled it out in meager glasses. When boarding in Hong Kong we had to go through an additional security check between the gate and the plane (that was a first...) and had our water bottles confiscated. So we were reliant on what they would give us on the plane. Seats were tight, unlike some airlines that give you a little extra room. Wouldn't fly again unless their price was a real bargain."
Pros: "I wasn’t"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had a different gate on my boarding pass. We were waiting at terminal 2 for 5 hours thingking that’s where our gate was. One hour before our boarding I come to find out that our gate was in a whole other terminal, we almost missed our flight. We would have missed it if I didnt as the ticket counter when is the Seattle flight going to go up on the screen. Poor communication on Alaska airlines part. Not very happy with that I had to rush to the other terminal because I had the wrong information on my boarding pass."
Pros: "Really good service, food, and entertainment."
Cons: "Should have WiFi on plane for long flights like mine (16hours +)"
Cons: "We opted for wheel chair but in Hong Kong we were nor given wheelchair and not informed about it to the passengers. They were not guided to the required flight destination in Hong Kong. When requested for some fruits during their flight they were not given any fruits or juice also."

Cons: "Pls see above comments"
Pros: "Entertainment choices, wine, charger"
Cons: "Food Choice and Alcoholic choices"
Pros: "Route and travel time. The food taste good."
Cons: "Bathrooms need to be cleaned in between flights; meal didn't have any condiments included ; they don't provide a toiletry bag with basics of toothbrush and socks; airplane needs to be CLEANED.. we found dental floss and empty containers inside the seat pocket."
Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"
Cons: "For a 15 hour flight no way to make economy class comfortable at this price ( I flew Cathay since they were much cheaper than flying directly from japan"
Pros: "Service with hospitality impressed me.Prefer to travel in cathay pacific air lines in future travel plans."
Cons: "Inform me hours before boarding a flight delay and layover time to connect to second flight extended from 2 to 18 hours. Called customer service for further info and arrangement. Long wait on calls and no definite answer if hotel will be provided. Customer service ny and hk no coordination and bounced me from one party to another. Poor attitude of Cathay at NY JFK Airport counter who showed indifference and claimed too busy to take attention."
Pros: "On flight entertainment was good. Fairly typical economy flight. It was just fine."
Cons: "People over a certain weight should need to upgrade to larger seats. I sat next to someone well over 300 pounds in an economy seat. It's just not ok."
Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."
Pros: "Entertainment Nice crew from Japan"

Pros: "Cathay Pacific is a great airline - good and plentiful food and drink and the staff is ever so friently"
Pros: "All crew worked hard and kind to passengers. Food was ok. They should have mineral water not from tub water."
Cons: "Mostly problem was their website!! Terrible!!!!! They should have mineral water not from tub water."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed. The food was good. The Moon Cake provided to help us celebrate, even though we were traveling, was an added example of why Cathay Pacific is the standard that everyone else is trying to emulate in Tourist class. The L.A.-based cabin crew provided outstanding service throughout the flight. The in-flight service manager made me believe she cared about the quality of the service in the back, which was outstanding. It was as good as a full, 13-hour flight could be. Even the in-seat entertainment was outstanding and reliable."
Cons: "The boarding process in Hong Kong was terrible. It was absolute chaos. If it had not been for then complete turn around after we were on the plane, it would have been the beginning of the flight from hell."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Cathay did not automatically credit my frequent flying miles"
Cons: "We had to go through the security twice. One the bags we scanned and the other before getting into the airline. Was a waste of time."

Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Breakfast burritos were a nice change."
Cons: "I did not like a seat under E row as the seats feel. Crammed."
Cons: "This BA flight has been a mainstay for those of us in Phoenix to fly nonstop to Europe for years . Always on time . Good service . Dreaded the flight back on American flight ( via British Air). Was pleasantly surprised with a new Dreamliner which made the BA Boeing seem quite old and shabby."
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Everything. Will never book AA/BA again. Ended up with 42 hours journey."
Cons: "The Boeing 747-400 is absolutely the WORST designed aircraft ever — Business Class cubicles are cramped with no spaces for placing items, etc. And, this was after the very worst boarding procedures!"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seat configuration in business class is the worst of all carriers I have ever flown. Very uncomfortable in so many ways."
Pros: "Liked the big plane. Didn't particularly like the food. And although enough alcohol was offered, I thought we didn't get enough to drink to stay hydrated. ( I meant water/thee)"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection out of London heathrow to Budapest."

Pros: "Food and braveries has good"
Cons: "Cold coffee"
Pros: "I liked that the flight crew were very friendly and helpful. The food was also pretty good overall"
Cons: "Cancellations and delays before my flight were horrible. The staff on the phone were rude and not helpful at all after waiting over an hour to speak with them."
Cons: "1. Plane engine set fire while taking off... leaking fuel. 2. My bag fee was waived, but the next day after being grounded and put in a cheap hotel for the night, I was RECHARGED $100. 3. They knew my flight left at 9pm, still gave me ONLY 1 hotel voucher so I was kicked out of the hotel at 12pm with NOWHERE to go for NINE HOURS with 125lbs of luggage. 4. They provided a good voucher, but the cheap hotel they put me in didn't have a kitchen, USELESS. 5. The flight was LATE getting to London the next day and I missed my BRITISH Airway connecting flight to Thailand. Had to wait another 7 HOURS to get a flight out. 6. Terrible service, over priced and rude agents. The agent told me " I don't know who waived your fee yesterday, but I'm not." Cold, considering the plane I was on the day before was shooting fire about to explode. 7. I was rebooked no choice of seating or consideration."
Pros: "The food on the flight was good."
Cons: "The wheelchair assistance was very bad as no one turned up with a wheelchair. The airways really need to improve their service and make sure that whey they offering wheelchair assistance they in fact do it. This has happened serveral times that no one turned up at the London airport."
Cons: "The BA flights I flew on were not new. Lie flat seat is not Best in the class. The movie collection is not uptodate. British airways in flight service levels are relatively inferior quality. The cabin and toilets were not spick-and-span. Toilets were not kept clean from time to time. The toileterries provided are not high in desirability quotient and can be improved in at least one leg of the international flights."
Pros: "The flight and everything associated with it. Food, crew etc"
Cons: "Customer services failed me"
Pros: "Oh my gosh.... I had the best flight ever. I wanted to be in Business Class, but the flight was so full, but when I sat down, there was an EMPTY SEAT next to me. What a beautiful thing. Flight was great, quiet and comfortable. Boarding was great and I enjoyed the my flight. Thank you:)"
Cons: "No WiFi available. Bad flight tracker."
Cons: "In the last leg ie with breakfast they offered only orange juice coffee or tea but no drinking water."
Pros: "The cabin crew member working in the area where I sat, Marc, went above and beyond his duties to make the family sitting next to me feel comfortable. Two of the children had special needs, and Marc brought the family chocolate, joking with the kids, and was available when they needed help. Well done."
Cons: "The entertainment would sometimes pause, and the screen would go black for a moment. This was very minor though."
Pros: "Nice Staff, flight on time, good customer service (they're British)!"
Cons: "Diminishing space for the human passenger, tight legroom, seats lay back, which is great if you are in one and terrible if you are behind one. And it was hot. Two years in a row. At 30,000 feet, where it's 30 below outside."
Pros: "The pilot was great and got us to our destination and the bags came out quickly."
Cons: "There are no outlets for charging on this outdated flight and the seatbelt were dirty with crusty food. The TV was surprisingly tiny...like the smallest I've ever seen. The check in was also awful. The person that checked us in had no mercy. He made me shift around my bag for .8 kg"
Pros: "Not enough room in the seating area"
Cons: "food was not good."
Pros: "The quality of the food was amazing. Flight attendants were very helpful and pleasant. The movie options were also wonderful."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to get comfortable. The lights that shine from above us were shining directly on me for a row behind me and for the person sitting on my left. Boarding was somewhat unorganized as there were people boarding in 2 areas."
Pros: "Very courteous staff"
Cons: "Inadequate food. Requested diabetic meal and the bread was loaded with sugar"
Pros: "Flight crew was really polite. Very attentive and remembered what was requested."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Seats were really tiny. Crammed in, in all directions"
Pros: "Crew were nice and friendly. Flight left a little late but made up the time even after the big IT disaster of the day before."
Cons: "Small seats with too much recline of person in front. An odd and chaotic method for boarding."
Pros: "Mostly everything was ok."
Cons: "I received water only once (plus coffe/tea option and small juice for breakfast). I needed to ask for water, i've also heard others asking for."
Pros: "Flights attend"
Cons: "Everything. no one helped me with the upgrade no time due to poor customer service."
Pros: "Just the right amount of flight time and arriving early in the morning. Dreamliner makes the flight much easier. Always get either 3rd or 7th row seats with window bed and free access to isle."
Cons: "Usually starts late sometimes in London, and always on some remote gate."
Cons: "Tried to change my return flight from Phoenix to Miami. Typical Legacy rigid inflexibility made it impossible."
Cons: "Old airplane, on one chair the seatbelt didn't work, on the next chair it didn't have the cushion."
Cons: "Horrible service for providing wheel chair. Pathetic service. They do not care much about the help needed."
Pros: "Didnt travel"
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was late, that happens. There was no sufficient information about it though. Boarding was badly organized (could not hear BA staff yelling through the crowd). The 1000-year old 747s are really inconvenient and you could not believe how small the seating space is. To dot the i, of course we missed our connecting flight and got no information about it, again, only after running across half of Heathrow... About missing the connecting flight: it could have been avoidable with just a minimal amont of effort, or willingness, or any sign of care towards the passengers. Customer service is waaaaay behind my expectations."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for long time. No food provided for passengers who travelled all the way from phoenix."
Pros: "Food was good and drink selection was great."
Cons: "Personal TV screen had some visual issues. Headrest wouldn't retain its position."
Pros: "Hard to find anything positive."
Cons: "Each leg of the trip was delayed by so much that I missed each following connection. Got to Prague and found out my luggage had been lost. After filing a claim about 8:30 pm on the 19th, I had to take a taxi into town because my hotel car had been taken out of service for the night. Rotten trip to Prague."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Loading plane was a little chaotic and the comfortable seat was a little overpriced for the legroom."
Pros: "Everything was generally great I don’t have any complaints."
Cons: "Well it’s nothing you can change I was pleased that the flight took 8 hours instead of 9 but because we were early it was a bit inconvenient that Heathrow had us do a “hard” arrival I think that’s what it was called so instead of a gate we got off on the tarmac."
Cons: "American Airlines lost our luggage and both flights were late, wife her cell phone and credit cards due to running in airport to catch our flight to Lisbon. Not impressed."
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "Short connection times"
Cons: "Being on time because of short connection time"
Pros: "Friendly crew and relatively new entertainment system"

Pros: "Crew was very nice, and helpful."
Cons: "I remember you used to get to choose from some seats even if you didn't pay extra. Since the smaller airlines started charging to choose, now the big ones are doing it as well. I checked in for two tickets at the same time, but my wife and i were still separated. Frustrating"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"
Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"
Pros: "No hassle"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to check in online and couldn't find out the reason for that"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."

Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me ＄50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
Cons: "The seats are terrible. On the first leg I couldn't use the back of the seat. Four hours hunched over in a tiny space is not fun."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Limited snack options."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."

Cons: "3 gate changes 2+ hours delayed leaving PHX"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The flight crew acted like they hated being there."
Cons: "We didn't make the connection because of American's incompetence on our previous flt. of Hermosillo to Phoenix."
Pros: "Being number one on the upgrade list at boarding, I appreciated being upgraded to first class as an Executive Platinum member."
Cons: "The pilot provided no departure or arrival information; he simply said cabin crew take your places for take off, and on arrival, he simply said the aircraft was one hundred miles from landing in twenty minutes with no other details enroute."
Pros: "Flight landed early"
Cons: "Found that seats that were booked together with family kept getting moved. Even when going back and checking the original seats were changed - so again changed so that family could sit together and once again the seats we booked to sit together were changed. Its a long uncomfortable flight, so having family next to you makes it much more bearable."
Pros: "Flight operated on time and safely"
Cons: "First class flight attendant did not recognize me by name or as an Executive Platinum member; aircraft window screen next to seat 1A was inoperative; pilots provided minimal communications and were very uninformative."
Pros: "The operations once my husband and I arrived to Phoenix Airport were absolutely horrible and caused us to miss our connecting flight home to San Diego. Our luggage took a long time to come out, then we had to stay in a 45 minute line to get through Customs, even though we didn't have anything to claim. After that, we then had to stay in another hour and a half line to get through TSA. The whole time, we kept trying to explain to the different airport staff that we had a connecting flight that we needed to catch, however nothing was being done by any of the parties to ensure that we would make it to our connecting flight. All parties (Customs, TSA, & American Airlines) just kept trying to pass the blame to each other instead of helping us and were rude on top of that. The delays were out of our control causing us to not only miss our flight, but also caused us to have to spend more money to stay at a hotel in Phoenix since the next flight available was not until the morning. This situation has also caused both my husband and me to miss work, causing us to miss out on today's wages. This entire situation has been the worst airport experience we've ever had, and we've traveled all over the world. We usually fly with American Airlines, and would hate to have to go with another airline, but we would have to if this situation is not rectified, and if we are not compensated for all of the additional costs imposed on us."

Pros: "Flight late due to discovery of radio not working just before flight departure. My seats had less room than seate in front of me and it would not recline leaving me an unacceptable amount of space."
Cons: "It got to Hawaii and my bags also made it. Since flight was late I could not get my rental car costing me more money."
Cons: "We travel to Kauai every year with 3 little kids and every year the crew runs out of food. On a 7 hour flight, there should be food or snacks available for purchase of you are past the first 5 rows"
Pros: "The flight operated safely and the flying time was shorter than normal."
Cons: "Delayed departure from PHX by more than one hour; no beverages provided to first class passengers after boarding and inspite of delayed departure; first class flight attendant did not recognize that I had preordered my meal entree nor did he ever call me by name as an Elite Platinum member. The aircraft leather seat back 1F was torn leather, showing signs of poor maintenance of the interior cabin. No electric outlets at seat for recharging portable electronic devices."
Cons: "My pre-assigned seat was not available at boarding. The crew skimped on offering water after the main drink service."
Pros: "Lovely staff, new plane, great entertainment options"
Pros: "I booked an aisle seat and they did not honour it at checking"
Pros: "The Air Canada Rouge crew was young, efficient & courteous; seats were good; and it was the only direct flight that I can get that day, at a convenient time during the daytime."
Cons: "Better entertainment ( u can only get them streamed to your own device), and maybe a bit better food."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "How late the flight was but they gave us a coupon to make up for it"
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "The lunch was average at best. Comedy show selections were terrible (in my opinion). I miss the days of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "It was incredibly cramped on the plane. Also, despite our ticket saying boarding starting at 2:05, we got there at 2:08 and were among the last people on the plane so there was no room for our luggage."
Pros: "Worst seats of any airline"
Cons: "Worst seats of any airline"
Cons: "Rude staff , flight was delayed, child sitting next to me kept kicking me and his mother wouldn't say anything to him staff also didn't do anything."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Timing of flight from Phoenix"
Pros: "Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable generally. No water on the plane. Cold coffee and tea. Just a bad experience."
Pros: "the hostesses were friendly. safe flight"
Cons: "they always start at first class with drinks and food , by the time they reach further back your flight is half over, can they not do one cart from front and one from back. I realize we were not in first class but please don't ignore us"
Pros: "We did finally get to our destination."
Cons: "Late flights, missed connection, no ground service"
Cons: "Staff was rude; they seemed more interested in talking to themselves than assisting customers. Air Canada never treats customers properly."
Cons: "The flight from Phoenix to Vancouver was good except for the poor wifi when we were connected to the air canada wifi. Since there is no mini TVs on the back of the seats, you have to connect to their wifi to access shows and movies from your own device which is fine if it works. Tried to watch a movie which had huge problems connecting and the loading signal was on for a large amount of time. Once it had connected to the movie, it had restarted to the beginning about 25 times during watching it. Very disappointing and made it very unenjoyable. Also, right after we boarded, the pilot went on the intercom to tell us the ground crew had a gas spill and had to take extra time to clean it up which led us to sit on the plane for an extra 45 minutes and that led us to miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "It’s Rouge. ‘Nuff said."
Pros: "The pilot made the flight a fast time. The airfare was a good price."
Cons: "The seat leg room was too cramped and the plane was older with a noisy cabin in the rear third area"
Pros: "Airport security was great and the airport pane was clean with a great crew!"
Cons: "Didn’t depart on schedule and then had to wait in Calgary to depart as the gate wasn’t available"
Pros: "Reasonable food"
Cons: "One suitcase did not arrive. Not sure when will arrive"
Pros: "Got a seat. Made it on the flight."
Cons: "My original flight (booked in January) was changed to the following day and there was no notification. So though the first leg was fine, the second flight (Toronto to London) i had to scramble in Toronto to book the flight and get a seat. (50K elite member)."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "The crew was fairly friendly. A glass of beverage was offered and water was offered a couple more times."
Cons: "Mddle seat is never fun and is one of my dislikes but I didn't hate it. The choice to opt out of the rating of the food and entertainment is not an option on this survey therefore I give 3 stars because they were only available for purchase and I did not purchase any."
Pros: "Love the individual entertainment & the friendly staff team"
Pros: "Didn't like much about this flight. Only benefit was the price and I wish I would have paid more to fly with someone else."
Cons: "Flew Air Canada to the east coast for a vacation. They lost my bag on the way over. Understandable. Things happen. I reported it missing at the airport. My vacation has come and gone and still no bag. Here we are 9 days later and no update or anything. Their baggage center is a NIGHTMARE. I wait on hold for over an hour each time only to be greeted by someone who couldn't care less about my issues. Every person has told me something different. It is beyond frustrating. Highly doubt I will ever see that bag again."
Pros: "The overall process was painless and the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Seats were very close to the seat in front of you. If you're over 6 foot 1 inch don't fly with them."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "No leg room, very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable seats with enough leg room."
Cons: "Cold air blowing on our seats that apparently could not be turned off - we asked twice. Very crowded in terminal with several flights boarding at same time, didnt know when we were being called up and didnt know which line to be in- very confusing"
Pros: "Seats very hard to sit in for 5 hrs."
Pros: "The seating on the airbus 319 in main cabin is very cramped. Prefer Westjet 737. Will use them in future."
Cons: "We were crammed in with no room to move. no way to get comfortable. Seats not comfortable. Very tight space and not pleasant."
Pros: "Staff were courteous. No problem there."
Cons: "The plane was old and there was little leg room. Should retire it."
Pros: "Everything went well with this trip home, the service was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. A real improvement from earlier Air Canada flights. Flights left on time, a bonus."
Pros: "Good flight everything was pleasant but..."
Cons: "My bag did not arrive for close to 2 hours after we landed. About 15 bags were released on the carousel at an appropriate time and over an hour later the rest of the plane's bags arrived. The staff were not overly concerned. They announced a number of times that the bags were coming, it was almost comical. I have dealt with this before at Pearson I don't understand why it takes large amounts of time to unload bags from the plane? Or why a few bags arrived and the others took 2 hours? I am not sure if Air Canada has any control over this or if it is Pearson's responsibility but I would appreciate if you could forward this complaint to the appropriate folks. Thanks."
Pros: "There was drinks but no snacks like cookies or pretzels. There was no form of entertainment on the plane The lines on the airport was way too long and it was overcrowded"
Pros: "The landing of the aircraft was second to none when we landed in Calgary."
Cons: "The seats we were sitting in were uncomfortable. There seemed to be a ridge near the back of the seat cushion and it was very uncomfortable for the entire trip."
Pros: "Boarding is very slow and disorganized. Plane was unusually noisy. Rouge seats are the WORST very little legroom even by economy standards."
Cons: "The way we were treated when we had to deplane because of mechanical problems. Air Canada spent little time looking for hotel rooms and told us if we can find one for ourselves they would be willing to give us up to$150 for the room if we saved our receipts. Where can you find a room in Phoenix for $150? You can't. The plane was suppose to leave 6:25pm . This was 9:00pm. No offer of food , drinks nothing. People were tired and hungry. Finally after a lot of complaining, that's when some us were given rooms they gave us vouchers for the hotels restaurant that was closed due to renovations. The agent was to,d this when they reserved the rooms but they lead us to believe there would be food there. We didn't get out until 2:00 pm the next day. And even that flight was late. I was exhausted when I finally reached my destination. I lost over a day of my vacation. I don't want to fly with Air Canada again!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Size of plane allowing for aisle seating."
Cons: "Delay with boarding for about hour without a good explanation. All monitors in airport shows plane on time when it actually was not. Boarding process also took a bit of time perhaps due to many elderly on the flight. Seating was also confusing as the middle seats did not correspond with aisle seating. This caused delays as passengers had to figure out where they were sitting. Checked in luggage at gate since flight was full and we were asked to volunteer to check-in luggage. At baggage claim, bag delay to retrieve luggage after already hour delay in departure. Bags was not labeled or categorized correctly causing an extra half hour delay to claim bags."
Cons: "No movies or muisc on the plane. No snacks to eat on the plan journey. No entertainment at all!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight,and all the rest was okay."
Cons: "My seat was damaged and it was hard on my neck,unable to rest it as the top part was jutting out."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew were pleasant and friendly. The land staff were helpful. The legroom was comfortable."
Cons: "There was not free meal"
Pros: "at least a packet of crisps with your drinks of juice and water"
Cons: "no movies and music-earphones"
Pros: "The pilot got us through some pretty heavy turbulence. Good job!"
Cons: "We were waiting in the plane for a couple of hours. They had us then disembark for half an hour and board again. I missed my connection. Air Canada needs to revisit the timetables from Toronto, all the transatlantic flights leave after 16:00, that creates long queues in the airport security and huge delays in cases like mine. I arrived 20 hours after my original flight because of this schedule. Additionally, they did not offer us any food, while the whole process took more than 10 hours. We arrived in Toronto at midnight local, when everything had already closed for the day."
Cons: "Never happened since the first fligh never landed. Has to be rebooked on a united flight which took me to destination."
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."
Cons: "Did not fly Air Canada from Phoenix to Toronto; flew much cheaper version "Rouge". Flight was delayed more than 40 minutes in Phoenix while cargo rearranged, making us late for connection in Toronto (1.5 hour layover initially). Stewardess told us we could make flight if we ran through airport, but when we got to the gate, we were told that we had been rescheduled on another flight 2 days later! Crew on flight did not tell us this. We did manage to get another flight to Frankfurt 2 hours later on Air Canada, then to Barcelona on Lufthansa, arriving 8 hours later than originally scheduled. Rouge flight had fewer amenities than Southwest and less legroom. Did not know what were getting when booked flight -Will never fly Rouge again!"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about the flight, other than the fact that the crew was compatent."
Cons: "As far as I'm concerned , I didn't fly Air Canada, I flew Air Canada Rouge. Air Canada Rouge is a VERY poor representative of the Air Canada brand. There is NO legroom!!! My seat mate, who is Canadian told me that they reduced the distance by 3 inches from the Air Canada standard. I am not a tall person, I only have a 30 inch inseam, but my knees were touching the seat in front of me. Anyone over 6 feet tall would be VERY uncomfortable."
Pros: "Competent staff."
Cons: "Packed in."
Pros: "The flight attendants and pilots do as much as they can to mitigate a truly awful travel experience."
Cons: "There is nothing about the experience that can be recommended. The seat layout is cramped and awful, the entertainment options are half-baked. Even the food is several notches below what you'd get on a normal Air Canada fight. This version of the airline is a national embarrassment."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice and very responsive"
Cons: "The food was not that good"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, friendly crew, comfortable seating."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "I requested and picked a window seat but unfortunately. Got isle seat. I requested a Muslim meal and I got pork in my choices."
Cons: "Honer the requests ."
Pros: "Safe landing, that’s all that matters."
Cons: "The entrances by groups. I get it, I just don’t care for it."
Cons: "United has a 2 hour delay for mechanical issue. We almost missed our connection to Zurich. Our bags did not make it and we are still waiting for our luggage"
Pros: "It was a bus trip. No food, crappy seats, and treated like we were cattle. The only positive was United’s new direction? The seats are smaller but yield more leg room. They will probably rethink that. There is inflight entertainment if you have your own device with WiFi and a screen. So pros and cons, but essentially a bus trip."
Cons: "Most disliked the seats. Not very comfortable for a three hour trip."
Cons: "Lost luggage’s"
Cons: "Seats were too small."
Pros: "Everything was usual, nothing special."
Cons: "The planes were late, but more importantly they lost my luggage somewhere."
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Pros: "The counter clerks in the airport were not friendly. But the inflight attendants and service was great."

Pros: "Good crew!! Entertainment screen not as good as SAS"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "Attendents were very nice."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "No reply from the airlines regarding my damaged baggage."
Pros: "Crew was mostly friendly"
Cons: "Leg room has vanished"
Pros: "Flying through the night freed me up the next morning. I'll fly red eye anytime."
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "Delay boarding, wait for a seat ticket, and gate to next terminal"
Pros: "Like other airlines, United is charging more fees for seats to food. And the food they sell is bad. The breakfast was microwaved to horification. Why are airlines permited to give such low levels of service? Why are they allowed to charge extra fees for ordinary seats? And no complimentary entertainment. All that NOTHING" service and for very high fees.I got suckered into paying a lot extra for premium Economy. The Premium was the extra money they stole. The Economy was the new definition of bare bones."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about the flight."
Cons: "I have alloted enough time for my next flight. Your airline crew in PhX did not extend any help in my problem even i asked them very polity in two instances. For me not to miss my flight i left my baggaes in the conveyor and I have to disturbed my friends in sfo to get my bags. I want to be conunmpensated with your poor service. Im expecting your respond"
Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Constant ads on the tv"
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Luggage got stuck in plane, 1 1/2 hour wait at carrousel! Newark sucks to get out, took two atemps with 2 GPS and 2 people trying to decifer NJ's crappy road signs!"
Cons: "Ride bumpy. Nothing crew did all mother natures fault Food and sandwich choices awful very little legroom No entertainment"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the plane was new, and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Like others have said, the in-flight entertainment isn't free (even a few channels) so it is pretty useless."
Cons: "Seating on this aircraft is poor at best!"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash. Quite possibly the only nice thing I can say about this flight."
Cons: "No built in personal entertainment for a 12 hour flight. If you had already downloaded the United app, you could connect a personal device to their wifi for free and watch from there (if you didn't download the app prior to takeoff, you were screwed). Also, no USB charging outlets were available. I live in Korea and don't have an American style outlet to connect to a USB, so my devices died. The provided tiny aisle TV which played programmed shows and movies kept freezing, skipping, and turning off. Entertainment is usually the saving grace for budget int'l flights, whose food, service, and comfort can be expected to suck. Next time I'll shell out for Korean Air or Asiana."
Pros: "Love the pre-boarding for families, love the customer service that you rarely get when flying, love the new snacks."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plane was clean"
Cons: "Unorganized seating system. Snappy staff."
Pros: "New plane, clean and blankets for the overnight flight"
Cons: "I was in the 4th boarding group (even though I checked in the first possible moment), I had to put my belongings 15 seats away from me."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Boarding was easy and crew was nice"
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Lack of comfortable space. :-("
Pros: "Overall planes appeared in good condition."
Cons: "center seat, not comfortable. Rough flight but crew did a good job communicating that was coming."
Pros: "It was smooth all the way around. We arrived in San Francisco 25 min early"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Service very frustrating fly always accommodating"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and then had to wait 45 mins on runway some difficulty"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants got a nose bleed at the gate and the lack of universal precautions in cleaning and caring for the blood spilled was appalling. That is how diseases are spread, was unprofessional and put people at risk."
Cons: "Late no place for my carryon"
Pros: "Crew was fine, plane was new and in good shape, seat was typical and fine."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi was available as described on seats"
Pros: "Nothing. I hate sitting in the back of the plane and I hate the middle seat."
Cons: "The middle seat and lack of food and no screen in the back of the seat."
Pros: "Charged for wi-fi never worked. Every employe I felt with was extremely rude. Never again"
Pros: "It took an additional 45 min to leave the gate after boarding and then when we landed it took an hour to taxi to the gate. THEN when I got my bags I had to walk to another gate, but the underground train was not in use since it was too late. I have to walk on a boot because of an Achilles injury... It was horrible. I didn't get to my car until an hour and a half AFTER getting my bags. I left Phoenix at 7pm and didn't get to my apartment until 2am. And I had to get up for an 8am meeting the next day. I will say the crew on the flight was amazing and upbeat- they made the trip!"
Pros: "I traveled on dec. 25th this year and was a little worried about making it to Jersey in time for a party. I boarded plane planning on worse case and landed finding myself in best case situation,on time and safe. Thanks,for keeping up the good work, that truly seems to be a fading mission for most airlines to uphold these days. So, again, cheers and happy holidays !!"
Cons: "Flight was oversold and delayed- twice."
Pros: "Smooth ride, comfortable seating"
Cons: "The Tsa was the slowest I've ever seen in my entire life no exaggeration"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Missing my international connection, having to spend 24 hours in San Francisco, not able to reschedule on a different flight. United paid for my hotel and gave me three $7 food vouchers. They only gave me 4oz of soda...I asked for the can and the flight attendant was rude. I wouldn't pay $7.99 for 3 hours of wifi."
Pros: "They put me on the back row on the aisle. I was extremely tired but could not get any sleep. People brushing by me. Try to change my sitting before but was denied. As I walked on the plane there were many open seats I could have sat at. But those who paid more money and the standbys got those seats. I do not like United preference of people. I was the low man on the totem pole."
Pros: "Got us to our destination about 25-30 minutes ahead of schedule. Comfortable seating in the exit rows."
Cons: "Got assigned an exit row seat by United but my fiancé could not sit next to me unless she paid extra even though the exit rows were completely empty besides myself"
