Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Turkish Air’s boarding is very good and their food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "I have flown many international miles and many with Turkish Air. I have seen them go backwards as an airline these past 9 years. No more Premium Economy and very small seats, no more hot towels b4 takeoff, unbearably hot cabins, no good snacks on long flights, etc."

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent and provided services above and beyond expectations."
Cons: "The onboard entertainment wasn’t working properly."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and pleasent"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Mumbai was not that great. Leg space was not that great. Food overall was pretty same across the 3 meals. Expect more variety which I have seen on other airlines like Emirates and Etihad."
Cons: "Leg room Food choices"
Cons: "Boarding and airport were terrible. Needed to walk 2 KM from one gate to another, only to board bus back to original location. Bus needed to make multiple trips to accommodate all passengers, this took one hour for boarding."
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "As usual the best"
Pros: "Getting Home"
Cons: "Everything the seats were so close to the other seat forget it they Reclined. No service at all one bottle of water for about 6 hours they never passed by once. Flt. Att.’s were nice but no training no customer service. Like cattle I just want to forget the trip"
Pros: "I liked everything, from the inflight catering, check in, etc! I had to cut short my trip to Istanbul due to a family issue- they couldn’t do enough to facilitate a flight home at short notice at a minimum cost and most importantly expedited my return with the minimum of hassle- thank you Turkish!"
Cons: "No negative points to make."
Cons: "My taxi crashed on the way to Izmir, I missed my flight to Istanbul and my connection to Dublin in still stuck in Istanbul"
Pros: "I had a seat in the front row of the economy section so I had a lot of leg room. They kept the toilets maintained (cleanliness, supplies) throughout the flight."
Cons: "It was a 10hr flight and we were fed only twice... full meals at the top & bottom of the flight. There were no snacks or drink service in-between... a 6hr stretch. I fly a lot internationally and that was quite unusual and unwelcome. They also ran out of food"

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."
Cons: "Connection time was 1h 50 mn coz and still didnt catch my next plan It took me 3 hours to get to the transfer desk in Turkish airline and another 3 hours to be in the hotel. I not recommend it after this bad experience"
Pros: "Crew was great. Good selection of movies too."

Pros: "Comfortable, great food, awesome crew! I love that they have a great variety of entertainment material."
Pros: "Everything. Pleasant crew, great food, clean plane, many entertainment options, movies, music etc. (individual screens)."
Pros: "(see above)"
Cons: "(see above)"
Pros: "Friendly staff good food. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Might just be a cultural thing but the boarding was a clusterfuck. Not really any order compared to flying out. Everyone just kind of lined up without any regard to the boarding groups."
Cons: "my seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great crew! So efficient and friendly. I understand why it is, but security was over the top. Cabin was a big cramped. Super food offerings!"
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Pros: "Food, crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hours so we missed our connection."
Pros: "Love the food and confort"
Cons: "Never got window, i lost a connection because the delay in NY and i had to wait an entire day, lost one day of my vacations"
Pros: "Amazing food! Very nice crew and excellent flight."
Cons: "They did not send the walker we brought with our group. It never left Istanbul and as a result one of our group members was severely injured!"
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "The window seat"
Pros: "Over all Turkish airlines is a class airlines"
Cons: "can't think of anything I didn't like about my flight"
Pros: "New and clean aircraft Kind cabin crew Ontime departure"
Pros: "Decent food & entertainment but that doesn't change the fact that my flight didn't actually go to my destination, which is the purpose of booking a flight after all, no?"
Cons: "Rerouted us to Adana without warning. No help in rebooking flights. No instructions as to what we were supposed to do. Had to stand in several very long lines - incredibly disorganized. Lost an entire day of my trip."
Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"
Cons: "less seat space"
Pros: "Food and the service"
Cons: "Ground crew, misleading information"
Pros: "Everyting is good and smooth with no problems at all"
Cons: "Nothing was bad"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options during the flight."
Cons: "1) Since we had a long layover at Istanbul, the airline provides the option to take you to a free hotel to spend the night. I knew this information based on online reviews, but the airline itself never did anything to offer this, I had to walk around on the airport, for like 2 hours I could not find decent help and some instructions in broken English. I had to pay 25 Euros to get mi visa stamped and walk out of the airport. The Turkish Airlines attendant that set up the free hotel for us, walked us to a shuttle that would drive us to the hotel, but the shuttle driver got lost? or something happened that caused for him to drive around town for more than an hour, speaking on the phone loudly in Turkish and completely ignoring us when we asked questions, This got a little scary since we had no idea what was going on, at some point we were in the middle of a dark residential area, and listening to the driver yell on the phone (god knows what). Luckily a driver came over and guided us to the hotel, but seriously, they should be careful about who they hire for these kind of tasks. (I posted a video on instagram with footage of the guy driving us around in case my family needed to find me)."
Pros: "Every thing was excellent"
Cons: "Agaun same food..."
Pros: "We had a connecting flight in Instanbul, Turkey, and a representative met us at our arrival gate from Rome and walked us through security and to our connecting flight to LAX. I thought that was great because we would've been completely lost if we had to do it on our own. Security check in was thorough. We had to go through security screening AGAIN (already did it in Rome and had to throw away our waters purchased in the airport), and two different lines for passport check. My husband had to go through a third security line because he had a carry-on. Boarding was well organized with passengers lining up by their boarding letter - no crowding - and people sitting at the back of the plane boarded first (after 1st class). The flight itself was great. The food was delicious. The orange juice tasted freshly squeezed. They gave us a water bottle, lots of current and blockbuster movies to choose from. They provided pillows, blankets, and earphones at no extra charge. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The seats were a little tight. They woke us when it was time to eat. Not sure why they didn't just let us sleep, and then give us our food when we woke up. Not really a big deal since I wanted to stay awake on the flight home, but I may have wanted to sleep."
Pros: "very good food!! and excellent choice of movies"
Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."
Cons: "Baggage handling was rough. Dented one new bag and broke the buckle on another."
Pros: "It was pretty short. 3 across in the middle rows is great, I wish all the flights had 3 seats in the middle."
Cons: "Cramped, no leg room."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Luggage that had to be checked at the gate was not immediately available when we landed."
Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Cons: "It was great fir a short flight. And they got me there early."
Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no a/c on tarmac for extended period because of technical issue, ancient entertainment system. Old plane with minimal overhead bin space, delayed flight"
Cons: "No delay"
Pros: "The booking in staff person was positive and friendly. I was disappointed that the system would not allow me to be placed on the upgrade list as a silver Velosity me mm ber partner to Delta."
Cons: "Slow WiFi"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, tight space. Could barely move and i’m Not a large person."
Cons: "In the last months I have travel 3 times , this is the first with Delta. I can say it has been the best experience I had. Good entertainment, the access to texting and the variety of snacks make superior this airline."
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic. Departed on time, arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "Delta One is a bit jaded on this flight."
Pros: "Very professional crew and in a good mood."
Cons: "The boardimg in Mexico City is always so messy. I think airlines should send back passengers that pretend it is their boarding time when it is not. So many people end up boarding before they should making a mess at the boardimg gate."
Pros: "The flight crew was very competent and welcoming."
Cons: "The gate agent at JFK was annoying. She forced us to check carry on bags for no apparent reason. Much larger carry on’s were allowed both before and after us. Her fellow agent seemed like she wanted to apologize for her capricious behavior, but was understandably hesitant to do so. The airplane seating was cramped and uncomfortable. The rntertainment choices were very limited unless you enjoy superhero movies or a very limited range of audio/musical selections. So it goes in coach class."
Pros: "Crews were nice"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "All 3 monitors in our row were frozen the entire 6 hour flight. The “food” was horrid dueling pastas. Inedible. Seats didn’t recline more than 10 degrees."
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
Cons: "This was the longest part of a three flight trip back to DCA and there was no movies. This was completely unexpected, so I wasn't prepared to entertain myself for 5 very long hours. It would have been nice to have know this ahead of time so I could have brought a book with me. Early notification thru the app is the way to go."
Pros: "Good choice of video programs."
Cons: "The flight attendant took 25 minutes to appear, and had enough time for one round of service. First class, at least you should get two drinks. Fly basic economy, there just isn’t any reason to fly first class."
Pros: "Entertainment did not work even though it was a quick flight we sat at the gate for a while which turned the flight into hour and a half."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Flight was faster than expected, comfy seats, check in was fast and easy."
Pros: "Flight went well and was smooth."
Pros: "NOTHING AT ALL!!!!"
Cons: "everything 1st of all i didnt like the fact that the stuff could act so unprofessional and very disrespectful and not knowing what type of info to give that made me lose my flight and at the end they all told me they couldnt help me to get my flight or anything not even try.."
Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and attentive"
Cons: "Poorly organized boarding process. Most of the passengers were Mexican and the announcements were all in English ... quite a bit of confusion. Also, they never announced Premium Boarding, just went from people with kids to Sky Priority ..."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
Pros: "The staff onboard was friendly and attentive. They made every effort to make sure I had whatever I wanted. Boarding was quick and easy. The onbaord entertainment system had a large selection and I was never without something worth watching."
Cons: "The first class accommodation isn't as good as advertised. The seat is supposed to completely recline allowing you to sleep. Unfortunately if you're 6 foot or taller there isn't enough room. Other airlines like Emirates gives you more room in their business class so it's disappointing to see United 1st class is so cramped. The screens for the onboard entertainment system in first class are lower quality then those used in coach."
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "We decided to volunteer to take a different flight from our connection to New York because they were overbooked. When it came time to board the international flight, they screwed up our boarding passes and made us wait until the end to board. We were zone 1, priority boarding. The tv screens were very small and so glitchy I stopped watching my movie halfway through. The connector flight from philly to NYC was much more comfortable and had beautiful screens."
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "Rebooked me on a flight from Nassau to Atlanta, and never worried about how I would get to Nassau from Georgetown, Exuma. Never even notified me about the rebooking. TERRIBLE customer service!"
Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."
Pros: "I liked that the security line experiences very mellow, the staff all around was very friendly and nice, the TV's were great and they had free blankets and headsets. It was a very relaxing experience."
Cons: "thought the cabin could have had more heat"
Pros: "Nothing to like -- didn't fly"
Cons: "Delta delayed my flight so long that I'm now traveling another day."
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Pros: "everthing went well"
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Pros: "On time and very smooth boarding"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled. Terrible customer service. My bags didn't travel with me. My vacation got screwed up."
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full and left and arrived early!"
Cons: "Offering some kind of beverage"
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Cons: "Late as usual"
Pros: "Really a nice meal and good service"
Pros: "Seating space is like putting 5 pounds of something g in a two pound bag. Not enough space."
Pros: "Seat 5A was great"
Pros: "The wine"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Easier option for entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing much but the crew made up for some of it."
Cons: "ORD and the roads approaching nothing short of a nightmare. Chicago should be embarrassed by the whole experience at ORD."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."
Pros: "Went on time and looked after very well"
Cons: "Going over leg room, a bit tight"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."
Pros: "Things went very smoothly."
Cons: "Long layover"
Cons: "For our delay with no information"
Pros: "Movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "Kayak/JustFly charged us a fee to pre-select our seats which was appealing traveling with a baby. However, upon checking in, we found that the seats were not reserved and the fee was a marketing ploy. The airline attempted to separate our family of 3, but luckily it was not a full flight and we were able to sit together with no help from Kayak, JustFly, British Airways, or American. Kayak/JustFly made the experience of traveling overseas with a baby more challenging than it otherwise would have been which is a terrible way to conduct business. We will never be using these services again and will tell family and friends to do the same."
Pros: "I lucked out, I was in a row alone, so got to stretch out and sleep for 3 of the 6.5 hours of the trip."
Cons: "The entertainment might have been good, but the touch screen system was extremely cumbersome andf it was hard to get a good overview about what was available and then when one thought one had chosen something, something else started to play. I tried to listen to classical music, but the cabin music was louder,"
Pros: "Everything was okay and scheduled for me, I just walked into the airline and showed my passport"
Cons: "I would like to get a 24 hour before remainder and chance to pick my sits!"
Pros: "Plane and staff were great. Very easy boarding process and we landed early in Dublin airport after an hour delayed take off. Food and staff service was very good, no complaints."
Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Pros: "All is well."
Cons: "No worthwhile complaints."
Pros: "Excellent service. Loved the tv screens with the remote. Exclennt flignt"
Cons: "I was told that because my passport would expire in 2 months that I wouldn't be allowed to board the flight. I was never alerted of this in the booking process."
Pros: "After the debacle of ATL > Chicago, this flight was a welcome reprieve from the crazy. Aer Lingus can get my business again."
Cons: "Too tight, seat was uncomfortable, food was bland"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. Enjoyed the Free movie options."
Pros: "There was a lot to see"
Cons: "The screens were severely delayed and frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "I was confused by the Brot"
Pros: "Prompt and curtious"
Pros: "I liked that we got into Dublin earlier than expected. I really liked the amount of legroom-- It's rare for me to be able to sleep and I did. Thank you!"
Cons: "nothing to complain about--"
Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."
Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"
Pros: "Gave us plenty of food and entertainment"
Cons: "the touchscreen for the inflight entertainment wasn't working properly - slow/unresponsive on the right side - and the announcements were deafening over headphones"
Cons: "Wasn't able to catch up this flight because of the cancellation of the connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "The crew were beyond excellent and tried to help with the seats. They were also very apologetic for the seat issue."
Cons: "Our seats had no power and couldn't adjust. The crew manually did it for us but we never got it to go close to flat. We were on an old 757 which is such an embarrassing product for AA compared to the new or refurbished planes."
Cons: "My flight date was changed because of a medical issue with my grandson, and I was outraged by the amount of the change fee."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Seating way too tight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; charged $50 for checking bags only to see them checked for others for free at the gate. Seat selection on our three flights that day were ignored on 2 of tge floghts."
Cons: "The plane had no TV in front of the seat for a international flight, the space was tiny as well. I could never recommend this to anyone else."
Cons: "a little difficult to check in on line as we booked through Finn Air but was AA operated therefore the many reference codes did not work and had to call agent but got it worked out."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "All was fine would be nice to have individual screens but that is minor"
Cons: "When we arrived to Chicago we discovered that the airline had tried to "fix" out connecting flight and in the process I was accidentally removed from the same flight as my husband and we were both forced to take detours through London since we had missed our direct flight. Our checked baggage was lost for 2 days. The London airport has more strict rules for carry-on bags and liquids so much of our items were confiscated and the worst part of all was being told at the gate in Chicago that they didn't know why I was removed from the flight but that I would not be allowed to board because they couldn't reach anyone at the American Airlines desk. We pleaded for help for over an hour and were basically asked to sit down and be ignored. I was sobbing when my husband and I were separated and we were worried we might not find eachother in London or in our final destination of Dublin since we had no cell service."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude, they had no dinner, no healthy breakfast options, they rationed the beverages and after being without enough water for 12 hours, they would give you dirty looks when you asked for a second serving of plain water."
Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Poor food quality"
Cons: "The food.... But you already know that, don't you."
Pros: "We lost a full day with delays using american airlines /finair when flying to dublin. Their "free" sandwiches to hold us over is embarasssing. We then missed our plane because finair informes us after waiting online we needed to go to another terminal to check bags at american airline. That was not initially told to us and now we are spending over $1000 so we can fly tomorrow plus hotel room. It also affected a business trip to vegas which i needed to cancel. My experience was terrible with finair and american airlines with terrible customer support at the airport. Amazing how we need to pay another 1000 for terrible communication."
Cons: "Lack of communication from airlines Delays Forced to pay a return flight fee plus hotel fee due to finair inabilityty to communicate and direct customers to right terminal."
Pros: "The emergency exit row had decent legroom and I was comped my beer."
Cons: "Perhaps it was my own fault, but I kept getting errors trying to check in online at the Finnair website. I was there because up until I tried to check in at JFK, I was 100% sure I booked a Finnair flight, because that's what Kayak told me. I was pretty pissed off when I found out that SURPRISE I was really flying on American Airlines, pretty much the most boring airline on the planet. When I checked in, I was still unable to get a seat assignment, not until I got to the gate where I had to wait 20 minutes for an agent to show up and sort things out. They finally put me in an emergency exit row, in an extremely uncomfortable non-recline seat (I know, regulations). The flight was also an hour late taking off (I know, not AA's fault), which did not help the experience. Will be more careful next time booking on Kayak."
Cons: "I received a call about two hours before my flight that it was canceled and that I was rescheduled for a day later. I understand that these things happen, but I was given no refund or offer for compensation."
Pros: "Food and crew excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process delayed as groups 3-6 all lined up together. No air at seats"
Cons: "Power outlet didn’t work in 34G so couldn’t get work done."
Pros: "Crew were exceptionally good, friendly and helpful. Great entertainment system."
Cons: "The food is terrible, overcooked watery beefless beef dishes. Better ti brng your own food."
Pros: "Crew were nice, food on board was ok Given the long wait time at immigration, we did not have to wait for our bags."
Cons: "Rouge seats are notoriously uncomfortable, especially on a 9 hour flight. Rouge Player entertainment sucks, very poor movie selection. Irish immigration took 45 minutes... a ridiculous amount of time in this day and age. My time with the officer took about 30 seconds, so obviously the problem is that they are understaffed...not the best way to start your trip to Ireland after a long flight!"
Pros: "Good service, surprisingly good food, smooth and efficient."
Cons: "The premium seating we paid extra for because we need leg room (my partner and I are 6'+) was the first row behind the 1st class seperation wall...so no way to extend legs by placing feet under the seat in front. Not very comfortable or worth $100 IMO."
Pros: "The 1.5 hours they turned the lights down and stopped the crew from going constantly up and down the aisle."
Cons: "We were traveling from 11 pm local time to 10:30 am local. However they kept all the lights on for nearly the whole flight. In addition, the crew was constantly going up and down the aisle with food or beverages. It made sleep impossible. To make matters worse I’m allergic to dairy and I tried to prebook an appropriate meal but couldn’t and everything had cheese."
Pros: "Customer service crew sorting us out on new flights had patience of saints"
Cons: "Did not make flight, gate crew rude and did not give information."
Pros: "Very little I'm afraid."
Cons: "A lot ohe seats are faulty the entertainment system barely works, mine didn't and even if it did the headphone jack was broken! The cabin is more than grubby, it is dirty with torn fabric and faded writing on dirty plastic. I skipped the meal on the return flights as the outbound were the worst I have ever had! In all honesty I'm not a fussy traveller and never write reviews but Air Canada was so bad I thought it might be useful info for someone."
Pros: "The plain was not full and my section at the back was quite empty so I had seats to my self and was able to lay down. The plane had been recently refurbished and everything was clean and new."
Cons: "Very rushed boarding, this happened last time too. They called for my section to board and I immediately got into line. They made two more call where the staff sounded quite annoyed. "We're still missing passengers" " If you are in section 3 you need to come to the gate right away" he made the second call when there was one person infront of me in the line. Like everyone was in line we just hadn't been processed yet. I don't know why we need to be rushed onto the plane by impatient staff. My entertainment device stopped working in the middle of a movie and didn't work for the rest of the flight."
Pros: "Short flight, crew."
Cons: "Delays and boarding."
Cons: "Information provided on delays was limited and information on connecting by flights was incorrect"
Pros: "The flights were great, on time and no problems. I was very comfortable and the food was good. FLight attendents were great except one guy who was not friendly and needed a vacation or another job."
Pros: "Easy flight to Dublin."
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized - staff should make sur only the people in the zones called are in line. Not everyone from all zones. The zones 3-5 line isn't helpful. They should change it to "boarding" and indicate only thsoe called to board should be there. Otherwise, they need separate lines for EACH Zone."
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Lack of in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No TV monitors and food was bad"
Cons: "Arrived in Montreal six hours late"
Cons: "Took us 13 hours total to get from Vancouver to Toronto"
Pros: "Great great great staff on the flight. Fast direct service ... Landing in T1 Dublin really speeds things . Checkin in good until.... See below"
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Food was served around 2-2:30 am. Realize this budget but still 750$... Movies - player kept stalling Check in ... Crazy on bag drop at check in #5 lane in departures in Toronto. Perhaps one more staff at high volume to make sure the folk in the bag drop line actually have bag tags. Travel to same route last year at this time and it was the same experience."
Pros: "Liked everything about this new class of service on Air Canada. Seat was comfortable with good recline that didn't interfere with fellow passengers. Food was excellent, entertainment system was well stocked, flight attendants were friendly and high energy. Even got to use lounge and fast-track security lane at Heathrow."
Cons: "Zero complaints."
Cons: "Was surprised not to have screens in the seats to watch movies on an international flight."
Pros: "It is convenient to take Air Canada from our town and connct in Toronto."
Cons: "The staff are barely polite and do not really care about the passengers. No smiles, Not friendly or welcoming. We trwveled in US last month.. What a difference in attitude. The food was awful, bordering in inedible. (example salad was cold canned corn with shreds of cabbage and no dressing.) Breqkfast was a piece of bread with choice of orange or tomato juice. No tea or coffee. They lost one of our bags, no apology and another company handled the search and return. No reason given to leave it behind. baggage and carry on rules are complex and complicated, and you never know when they will decide to enforce them and penalize you. If you can get there any other way don't go Air Canada."
Pros: "It got to Vegas on time and my luggage was there, too."
Cons: "Rouge has less space per person than Spirit. I never thought that could be possible."
Pros: "The crew was so good and friendly. I had an overnight flight and so having a considerate crew is so important. The comfortability was decent for being a plane and long distance."
Cons: "It was a 6.5 hour flight and there was no entertainment. Every additional amenty cost extra."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Avoidable delays caused a late departure from Toronto, then we sat on tarmac waiting for a gate in Dublin. Eventually had to debark into the tarmac and walk in. Delays caused us to miss our next flight to Munich."
Pros: "I liked the streaming entertainment I enjoyed the friendliness of the crew I was pleased with the Canada air app allowing check-in and tracking of flight"
Cons: "The comfortability of the flight was poor. Both my wife and I were too uncomfortable to be able to sleep on out more than 9 hour flight. Leg room bad, seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't a food in the International flight. Air Canada is so crazy!"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not completely full. we had a hard touchdown"
Cons: "1. These days, I have come to expect a complimentary in-flight entertainment system on international flights. This flight had nothing whatsoever. This is ok, but the customer should be warned when making the flight reservation so they can choose whether to bring an ipad along. 2. Food and service were not as good as a recent Air Canada return trip from Roma to Vancouver which had a first rate crew, food, and complimentary beer. 3. The plane was much older than the recent return trip I had and the air was much more dry."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about my flight to Dublin was the fact that we arrived in the correct city."
Cons: "Once again I found the air Canada staff unaccommodating, un-attentive and basically indifferent to the aircraft's guest. In addition I tried 4 electrical outlets on the aircraft before finding one that worked and the reading lights never did work. I would never recommend this airline."
Pros: "Safe and efficient."
Cons: "Poor seat room. Food quality mediocre."
Cons: "After paying for a business One-Way.. the flight was canceled abruptly without any forewarning. There was the a line of 50-75 ppl with one attendant working. It took me nearly 3 hours to get anyone's attention, and finally told i was 'lucky' to get on a flight the next morning, after missing a Wedding dinner. I was also forced to pay 2x cab rides to the airport. Thanks Air Canada"
Pros: "Despite departing late we made it relatively on time"
Cons: "My screen didn't work. The outlet in the seat was also broken. The connection to the Internet was weak and there was a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "The fact there was no entertainment system available for a 6hr international flight is a crime. Apparently there is some sort of app you need to download on a mobile device or computer BEFORE the flight, Would have made a huge difference knowing that."
Cons: "There were no screens to watch anything on for a flight across the Atlantic. And we were told once we boarded that we needed to download the aircanada app in order to get content. Well by that time I didn't have free wifi and couldn't download the app. Very frustrating. I would suggest announcing this before people board the flight."
Pros: "Got to spread out onto two seats since flight was not crowded."
Cons: "Food options. No inflight seat with entertainment screen."
Pros: "The crews were okay, they tried."
Cons: "First, the plane was a 767, rode a plane of that size cross the Pacific was extremely uncomfortable. We sat inside the plane for over 2 hours because of some unknown luggage/passenger problem before taking off! I found there were no entertainment. That was the first time I flew oversea without entertainment (TV). The tightness of the seating and boredom made the trip extremely long and uncomfortable."
Cons: "I am 5' tall and there was no leg room for me."
Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the crew was wonderful!"
Cons: "Air Canada changed my seat assignment at the gate. I had chosen a window-seat, but they switched me to a center seat. Also, there is no free in-flight entertainment if you don't have your own tablet/smartphone (neither of which I have). You can rent i-pads. I wish I had known that before flying."
Pros: "Great crew. Gracious and helpful."
Cons: "Kayak was a nightmare to work with."
Cons: "The fight itself was fine. Not great. Not terrible. But the airline lost my son's suitcase and has been entirely unhelpful ever since then. Now we have been stuck in a foreign country without clothes and toiletries for 36 hours and Air Canada's "helpline" has been anything but helpful. They can not find any information on the location of the suitcase and hope that they will find it in another 48 hours. Rediculous!! I will never fly them again and suggest that you save your money, effort and vacation by flying with another airline."
Pros: "The flight crew were nice and friendly, though they weren't very on top of trash pickup, but they were chipper and that's always better than grumpy crew that are super-efficient. Also, our luggage made it with us despite a tight connection."
Cons: "53 minute hold time to call center (before my call was even answered) to order vegetarian meals for flight (the day before flight) -wish that could be done online, vegetarian meal request not transferred to new flight after we missed our initial flight due to first flight delay, lights not working properly for half of flight (sleeping child under spotlight), the pasta dish, collecting garbage in my seat throughout flight (particularly after meal service), cramped seating, lack of entertainment, and they are now charging for alcoholic beverages on international flights. I'm not a big drinker, but I still enjoyed that perk."
Cons: "Had to use your own electronic device. Did not know that you had too download an app prior to boarding. No personal control over cooling/heating. Never fly Air Canada Rouge in the future"
Pros: "Toronto is a lovely airport, and it's a short hop to Europe from there, which is why Air Canada Rouge is ok for the trip. It's important to remember that their no frills approach means no TVs. Sleep or plan accordingly."
Pros: "Again the crew was enjoyable and the timliness of the flight and the boarding process was great. Also I appreciated the blanket and pillow given for the flight"
Cons: "There was no entertainment for this 6.5 hour flight, I was very disappointed with that."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Where do I start. Plane was very late taking off but the biggest thing was that I paid extra for a premium seat and I think it was worse then any regular seat. Waste of money!! Now the food. It sucked and there wasn't much of it. Dinner was at best skimpy and " breakfast" was a piece of some kind of cake. That was it!"
Pros: "Food tasted good"
Cons: "How close together the seats were."
Pros: "That we made it there reasonably on time."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment unless you knew to get their app, before getting on the plane, limited leg room, bad food, no drinks on an int'l flight. Too bad it was the same price others charge."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, friendly crew, pillow and blanket both serviceable. Food was a little better than I expected for economy."
Cons: "Baggage handling ripped handle clean off new suitcase, both ends. Delays in departures from Dublin led to us using stairs off of plane on tarmac. Entertainment mostly dependent on app you can't download on plane if you're using wi-fi."
Pros: "Air staff were somewhat pleasant."
Cons: "Plane (767-300) is so old you have to use their app on your own device to watch movies. Plane is so long it takes forever for even simple beverage service to get to you, blocking aisles for hours while various carts are dragged about. Servings were mean, you could only get the can of soda if you begged, refills were also slim, and ice was a cube, maybe two. At one point I was so dry I had to page air staff to ask for more water (and I Never do that!). Food was mediocre at best. Landing, plane shook so hard I thought it would come apart! Planes like this need to be retired FAST. Last time I will fly this equipment. I'm literally going to pay all those ridiculous fees to change my return flight. Hated this exhausting, inconvenient, unpleasant and entirely too expensive experience. Don't fly Air Canada overseas!!"
Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "Flight crew was top notch"
Cons: "The boarding procédure in Dublin requires à long walks in 3 différent locations. Should be ma de shorter"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating in light of the maintenance delay. Especially for those of us with small children."
Cons: "Look, delays suck. We fly about only once a year, and we ALWAYS have a delay. ALWAYS. Air traffic control at Newark will delay a flight for a hangnail."
Pros: "CRES was great"
Cons: "Many of us waited about 40 minute for our bags to show up in the reclaim area."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but overall not bad."
Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash."
Cons: "They missed the connecting flight the day before, so we had to fly out the next day on a flight that left ~1 hour late. I know the staff is doing what they can so I blame the execs making millions because they’re typically the real problem anyway."
Pros: "Big windows"
Cons: "Too cold during red eye"
Cons: "We didn't fly here"
Pros: "It’s existance. Informative capt."
Cons: "Late almost 3 hours. Sketchy bev service. 50 seat RJ."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day"
Cons: "Landed in Canada to let off a "sick" passenger, sat there for hours and after the pilot made countless excuses, including needing to refuel, needing a new route, and needing to de-ice the plane, he finally announced that we're headed all the way back to Newark for some unknown reason. Worst flight ever. Couldn't be any less happy. F*** this airline. Will never use again. Ruined my vacation, thanks a lot."
Cons: "3 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "An early departure!"
Pros: "Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport"
Cons: "My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United. The crew in Portland ME told me the gate person would have a hotel for me.... The baggage crew had to help me."
Pros: "Crew members were pleasant"
Cons: "Gate was changed to a gate much farther away. Flight was delayed for 4 different reasons all of which were unlikely. We left 4 hours late. On board the plane was freezing cold. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again."
Cons: "I only made it as far as Chicago, and my bag was fairly comprehensively lost as I did so"
Cons: "Person at ticket counter was rude did not want to wait in us when we was 1st in line. Did not greet and say good morning"
Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "First time first class flyer. It was great!"
Cons: "Being separated from my wife in seating when we booked before others that we talked to!"
Pros: "The flight attendants. Especially Meagan and Heather. Amber was a,sweetheart too. I had the same attendants 3 out of 4 of my flights that weekend. So cool. When they realized it was me again they spoiled me rotten. So good I feel like unless I have those 3 as my attendants I won't fly United again"
Cons: "No food options. No free food"
Cons: "Really awful, disorganized and unapologetic."
Pros: "they gave a $100 voucher"
Pros: "Arriving in Dublin"
Cons: "Seat was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "An empty seat in the middle."
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined further than all the rest and the new seats that United has installed are incredibly uncomfortBle especially for a long international flight!!"
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays including on plane then everyone was kicked off. We waited more and they cancelled the whole flight and everyone had to scramble to get on anything available. I lost 28 hours of my vacation. They put us in a scary hotel in Chicago. I received a $200 voucher for further flights that doesn't even cover the cost of my unrefundable expenses such as car, hotel and tickets that were lost on my vacation."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."
Pros: "Usual United Corp mentality Overbook flites change your itinary leave you stranded with no connection spend nite in airport"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "The plane dropped during decent."
Pros: "I loved the butternut squash pasta. I plan on making this recipe at home. The staff was also very pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and the person in front of me kept reclining. I had very little space to try and make myself comfortable. I am 110lbs, so I can't imagine how a larger person would feel."
Cons: "For an international flight, there should be more amenities like charger etc."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "Arrived late"
Cons: "Kayak did not provide me with confirming email for flight in either direction and I missed my first flight to LA from Portland This is the second time I was not contacted via email from Kayak on flight reservations"
Pros: "We stood in line forever to then be told the clerk couldn't ch we ck us in. When we tried the kiosk it didn’t work. Long story short we missed our flight due to their poor organization of the line and crowd."
Cons: "The confusion caused by lack of direction from the staff."
Cons: "Seating next to the bathroom is gross"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "Couldn't really figure out your Wi-Fi system so I just read a book"
Cons: "It's not really easy to set up your Wi-Fi system through the United app"
Pros: "It use to be, I could put up with the lack of comfort and services because the cost savings made it bearable. But thes days, the basic ticket costs are high and increasing despite ala Carter pricing. The flights are always full and the number of flights are down. Airline profits are at a peak yet very little is flowing back to improve the flying experience."
Cons: "No agent to check in when I arrived at airport. Only at gate. No advance check in or advance seating. Allowed passengers to have more than 2 bags. Flight was late. No help getting to next gate or holding aircraft. Absolutely uncomfortable sitting."
Pros: "Two meals, great staff, eventless flight"
Cons: "2+ Hour delay due to airplane issues limited space under isle seats for carry on bags"
Pros: "That I got a refund, although that should be a given"
Cons: "Had to purchase new flight day of, as I was told of flight cancellation 5 hours before leaving to the airport. I then had to spend $500 on a new flight, and one of the connections refused to let me on the plane. Stil not home."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Pros: "made good time."
Cons: "they lost our luggage on the way back,Didn't make it to Portland. But it was brought to our house at 7:45. I think for 1600.00 for tickets you should provide pretzels. That would be great. Thanks"
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm."
Cons: "Payed to upgrade seat was not comfortable and person next to me kept moving onto my side. Flight was 2 hours late so I missed my connection and had a terrible time to find a flight home. United staff was not helpful and kept telling me to go somewhere else for help. No food was served only tiny packet of way too spicy pretzels. Sat on the runway for an hour. Flight crew said 15 min and it was much longer. Crew seemed to be really confused."
Pros: "We were tossed into the last row; I had no leg room and was constantly being bumped by people using the rest rooms. As a result it was a sleepless flight."
Pros: "After being in the air for 4 hours without being able to connect to listen to anything, a gentleman flight attendant came to ask if I needed help. He then tried a couple different tools to try to help me. Nothing ended up working, but I appreciated him trying."
Cons: "Before the flight took off, I mentioned to a female flight attendant that there seemed to be something in the headphone jack and would like some assistance. She said that it wasn't the time to assist me with that (which I can understand), but she never came back to try to help. Once in the air, another women recognized that I couldn't connect and said she would be back. I am not sure if she forgot or if sent the gentleman flight attendant to assist, I felt like I wasn't heard at all."
