Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Lovely staff, new plane, great entertainment options"
Pros: "Not much except the smooth flight."
Cons: "We were served only one drink on a four hour flight. Couldn’t find a flight attendant to get a glass a water. Had my flight attendant call button on for a long time with no response. Flight attendants walked right by while attending to other tasks and never even asked what I needed. There were a few call button lights on that never seemed to be answered. I asked for water but never received it. Rouge seems to be a very sub par airline from its Air Canada parent, as I fly Air Canada frequently and am not new at this. This airline needs to work on customer service and it’s image."
Pros: "It’s not everyday that you get a meal for free on an airline in addition to friendly service. Even though the flight was 7 hours, it was a smooth and enjoyable one."
Pros: "Not much ch, safe arrival in BCN, the captains communication."
Cons: "The crew felt like they were wanting to yell at people and they took power pride actions to do so. If I did not know better, I thought there was a moment when the meal service was actually being tossed...but that would require effort and exertion. Asking for ice is a no no, please do not do so."
Pros: "Exceptional service and staff"
Cons: "Food isn't usually this subpar."
Cons: "flight cancelled. had to go down to ticketing. rebooked given a $10 food voucher and told we would get a hotel room when we got to Toronto since we were getting in real late because of the delay"

Pros: "business class"
Pros: "Friendly folks"
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then cancelled, and there wasn't even bad weather at either airport. I still don't know why the flight was cancelled. My alternate flight had to be from a different airport and that flight was also delayed. I went from a non-stop flight to a flight with a layover... a 7 hour layover. Was not fun sleeping at the airport. On top of that, I had paid to select my seat and it wasn't honored on the flight back. Somehow I was unassigned because of the flight change during departure but I was still charged."
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice. Let you jump to other open seats once in the air."
Cons: "Seats were incredibly tight. If you're taller than 5'10", your knees will touch the front seat. You can pay to upgrade or just change your seats for free if the bigger ones are open. They won't check you in to your connecting flight like other airlines so beware as others have entibies this. And don't expect to be on time. 3if 4 of our flights were delayed ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Hope that you have a long connection."
Pros: "Didn't take it"
Cons: "Customer service in Toronto did not know how to get us to Venice before our cruise departed. Wild goose chase sent us on a one hour, $26 train ride to Milan central station where we learned the train air canada told us to take didn't exist. Suddenly forced to take a 2.5 hr, $500 cab ride to Venice."
Cons: "After taking Air Canada to Toronto, this Air Canada flight from Toronto to Orlando was a shock- no back-of-seat tv screens, no entertainment choice, no meals provided, less space, less comfortable."
Pros: "The plane was nice, updated entertainment options, crew was very friendly and trilingual."
Cons: "Food was nothing to write home about, but it served its purpose."

Pros: "Flight delayed we wait 1:30 with 4 child and we were already there 5 hours before coming from miami and air canada do not offer anything for the delay"
Cons: "The food never has anything for a gluten free eater..always have to bring my own."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1 & a half hours. no explanation. Was an hour flight to Columbus but we had to wait 45 minutes for our checked baggage because Air Canada didn't have enough people on staff. Our wait for baggage was almost as long as our flight. Everyone was really mad not just us."
Cons: "There was cold air blowing on our feet the entire flight."
Pros: "Return flight -staff were friendly, more spaceous"
Cons: "Arrive flight to Punta cana -staff could be more corteous and friendly"
Pros: "The only thing good was the aircraft was clean and nice and a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "The crew was rude, the seat couldn't lean back and I couldn't sleep for the entire duration of the trip, the food was awful and a small amount for such a long trip."
Pros: "Great crew members. Helpful and welcoming!"
Cons: "Like last year we had long delays going and returning from Toronto to Madrid. Breakfast was also not has good. We only got a slice of banana bread. Not enough choices and quality."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Coach seating on the 777 is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and orderly."
Cons: "We requested for seat in the front and nothing was available. We were placed at the back of the plane one to the last row. There was many open seat in the front?????? Either inefficient or malicious. Our over head compartment was full with flight equipment and supply."
Cons: "My trip was suppose to have two stops from Saint John to Louisville (one in Toronto and one in Chicago) but instead it ended up being a one stop flight from Saint John to Toronto to Cincinnati because I had to change my whole itinerary due to delays in air canada flights that caused me to miss my other connections. This made me to fly into an entirely different city and have my reception drive to get me for the only other option I was told by an air Canada representative was to take the delayed flight and miss my last connection and overnight Chicago (one of my original connections) and then fly to Louisville the next morning. This was not something I planned on doing and didn't have the time to do so had to find an alternative arrangement to get me close to where I needed to be. The first flight I was on from Saint John to Toronto was also delayed causing the flight to be late upon arrival at the Toronto airport. Not only that but then had to wait in line at the customs center for over an hour for only one customs officer was there to clear over 100+ passengers. Even if my other flights were on time I would have missed them due to the delays all around. Over all I was very displeased with how the day progressed, how I wasn't given much help from the air canada representatives at the airport other than them saying "there's nothing we can do" and for how the day continued to get worse with delays and problems all linked to air Canada."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the plane. It had comfortable seats and was very roomy. There was complimentary dinner and breakfast service, both of which were delicious."
Cons: "About 80% of my flight consisted of noisy Spanish high-school erst returning from some trip in Canada. They were loud and obnoxious and ruin the peace on the plane. This was an overnight flight and they ruined any chances of falling asleep. The problem came from the fact that the flight attendants could keep them under control. They, in turn, got annoyed and gave generally subpar and unpleasant service."
Pros: "Staff was professional and courteous. The staff was helpful but were too busy dealing with the full plane load of passengers."
Cons: "Crowded middle seat that was uncomfortable to sit in. Sat next to severely overweight person, who needed two seas to be comfortable. I was squished. The seat belt was tangled up and I could not fix it to adjust it. Bell to call flight attendant was not working. The middle light bulb was burnt out. Took my book to read on this long flight but could not read. just sat in the dark when the lights went out. Boarding the plane seemed like planned chaos! No one (passengers) listened to instructions and these were poor given by those responsible to oversee the boarding the plane. Fight was delayed for half an hour with people coming on at such late time. Had to change seats to accommodate others - family with children. Dealing with disembarkation should be better and much too long. Those with connecting flights should leave first and can be identified earlier to prevent cheating. Those with children should be next. Those in the aisle seats then leave, followed by those in the middle and window seats. Loading the plane after the business class or first class should be according to seat number from the back of the plane to the front. this completely random boarding boarding clogs up the aisle with passengers and luggage. I thought in an emergency this plane would not be efficiently evacuated. You can call me Seelochan Beharry 604-261-6690"
Pros: "Friendly crew Newer airplane (787) On time"
Pros: "Quality of food was pretty mediocre. Of course I am comparing this with airlines like KLM, Emirates or Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "The crew were extremely friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "I wasn't offered a meal preference, and was disappointed they couldn't accommodate me with a vegetarian meal. I also didn't enjoy the fact that the plane didn't have an integrated entertainment system, and that you have to pay extra to receive a tablet to watch movies..."
Cons: "2 hour delay Food was horrendous, worst airplane food I ever had"
Pros: "Wifi was a bonus (not free, but was good to have, and worked well). Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Deplaning and entering the terminal was delayed substantially."
Cons: "The ground female ground attendant was horrible.I am disabled and the escort girl lied to me about the bags arriving.I had to go back through US IMIGRATION AND CANADA IMMIGRATION that is when the lady told me that she told my escort that my bags did not arrive.it was the worst flight experience ever"
Pros: "Direct, on time, good on-board service, no hassle, excellent value for money"
Pros: "The entertainment. The first meal was decent."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The flight was extremely late both ways. The entertainment system was really bad. The seats were dirty and old. The foot rest was broken."
Cons: "Attendants were a little grumpy ~"
Pros: "Very low ticket price; new plane very quiet; excellent choice of TV shows and films at seat though need to bring own headphones to avoid payment"
Cons: "Online boarding pass rejected at gate, pre-ordered special meal not provided; seat not particularly comfortable; wrong info given before flight about need to go through security again when changing planes in Madrid; flights of stairs on tarmac needed to deplane from transatlantic flight and board international flight in Madrid; in flight announcements in English barely audible"
Pros: "The food was good and plane was new and clean."
Cons: "Very small seats, they only have the seats in sets of three. The flight was 45 minutes delay."
Pros: "It was a regular airplane."
Cons: "I didn't like how there was no space for such a long flight. I also didn't like how long it took to receive my bag in Madrid (almost 45mins)"
Pros: "Flight was safe, priced well, included checked baggage, and they didn't nickel and dime you (although if you wanted anything to drink, you would be charged for it). They let you choose seats too without charging extra."
Cons: "To board at Frankfurt, we had to first wait in a room until about 5 minutes before scheduled takeoff time, then everyone loaded into a bus to drive out to the plane on the tarmac, then finally we started to taxi to take off. There didn't appear to be any reason for our delay, other than the fact that the boarding process is as long as it could possibly be (wait in a room, take a bus, then finally walk onto the plane). Not much legroom at all, my knees were pretty much touching the seat in front of me (I'm 6 feet tall). Bags took awhile to get out to baggage claim, and were pretty wet from the rain outside."
Cons: "Plane did not leave on time. We were waiting for 30 minutes for take off and no anoauncement was made. We got nothing in return"

Cons: "Wasn't as comfortable. It would Have been nice to have a little more leg room"
Cons: "Not enough legroom! Flight attendants did not seem interested"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Very limited space."
Pros: "It is a direct flight to Madrid"
Cons: "9 hour overnight flight and the seat uncomfortable to sleep in. Also, they won't let you check in at home. So you really have to show up 2 hours before flight. Just made the whole experience even longer... On"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "No way to sit straight if you are over 5'10". Very uncomfortable. When the person in front pops the seat back eating is almost impossible and getting out of the seat turns into a problem. The soggy buns were not real food and the empty cardboard box for breakfast was unnecessary and made more garbage. The fried noodles looked like something I see in the compost pile."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "I've purchased a meal which was completely tasteless. I don't expect gourmet food, but really the minimum."
Pros: "I liked the food it was pretty good"
Cons: "I didn't like that for an 8 hour and 50 minute flight my plane didn't have individual TV's so the flight was pretty boring."

Pros: "New, clean, spacious airplane."
Cons: "The meal offering could be better."
Pros: "The staff on my trip to London for a death in the family turned out to be quite a delight! From the professional and accomodating hosts to the good tasting food. I will fly with Air Europa again, and spread the good news."
Pros: "Direct flight is an excellent option. More days should be added with direct flights from San Juan to Madrid and vice versa."
Cons: "Flight had a 1.5 hr delay leaving San Juan"
Pros: "Flight attendant could tell I was very uncomfortable sitting in my seat. My knees hit the seat in front and the person in front was basically sleeping on my lap. He told me there were other seats available for me to be more comfortable. He didn't have to and that was really great. Thank you."
Cons: "I told the check in person that I wanted an emergency exit seat so I could have more leg room. She said it was 20€ More. I said I would pay it. She made a change and said it wasn't necessary to pay. I was very happy. When I got on the plane, I realized she never gave me an emergency exit seat."
Pros: "The flight was delayed because the plane arrived late, but we made it almost in time for the connection flights. Great flight, very good service. I'll totally travel again with Air Europa"
Cons: "The boarding was 2 hours delay due to plane being late , due to it was getting clean , then the said the delay was do to the crew three different stories . So it look like they were all lies Then you get on the plane some of the crew members has a bad attitude very unpleasant ,over heard one flight attendant say to a staff member what do the think ,we are tired too ! she forgot we are paying customers ,not employees ! Also there where a bunch of empty seat no one could sit in because they were for the crew .so they can sleep in during the flight ,felt that was very unprofessional . We arrive to Madrid and had to go through t s a again as if we just entered air lines major delays almost miss next flight ,so that was very stressful . My son got food poisoning ,as well ,later the night not a good experience . I feel I will not be flying air Europa again I was not pleased with all my flying experience I have had never had this experience so I rate air line poor"

Cons: "The entretaiment system never worked!!"
Cons: "Everything. Delayed 4 hrs. because of a landing wheel they he'd to replace, after being delayed to get on the plane, and then they made us sit in the plane at the gate 2 hrs., then made us get off for another hour and a half. Seats totally uncomfortable. And we phad paid for better seats. Dreading the return flights."
Pros: "Entire airline was comfortable and clean. Amazing leg room in every seat"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment system"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 12 hours. Had to cancel and make other last minute arragements."
Pros: "The plane was quite new, had device charging service and i liked the movies they offered on their entertaining system. One of the crew members was quite cute and nice."
Cons: "I checked the flight status on my way to the airport and it said on time. When i arrived to the air europa counter they told me the plane was 1 hr late. Would have been nice to know this beforehand so that i wasn't wandering at the airport for such a long time. Once at the boarding gate they made me wait one more hour over the already delayed announced time."
Cons: "MUCHAS HORAS DE ESPERA EN AEROPUERTO PARA PODER FACTURAR , LUEGO AVISARON QUE ENVIARIAN DOS AVIONES YA QUE ERAMOS MUCS PASAJEROS , LUEGO PRIMERO EMBARCARIAN LOS QUE TUVIERAN CONEXION DESPUES MAS TARDE LOS QUE IBAN DIRECTO MADRID , 4 HORAS DE RETRASO , INFORMACION SOBRE LO QUE ACONTECIA MUY CONFUSA Y CERO INTERES EN LA SITUACION DE DESESPERO DE LOS PASAJEROS , EN RESUMEN NO PODRIA SER PEOR LA EXPERIENCIA"
Pros: "Direct flight at suitable time."
Cons: "There is no online check in. So you need to get to airport early to get seats together. If you are traveling Witt kids, good luck. Only 5 movies for entertainment that is available 1 HR after boarding. The seats in economy are very close together. I am 5 6 and could hardly stretch my legs. never again."
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "only a small snack and one drink for a very long flight."
Pros: "Nice seats throughout the plane, spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment was good but for a fee. Average catering"
Pros: "We boarded and sat at the gate for FOUR hours while the ground crew dithered with a tire. We were not told anything for an hour then not offered to dis board for another hour with the option to schlep all our carry on items. A little communications would have gone a long way. When one is facing an 8 hour flight sitting an extra 4 hours is unacceptable. If asked I will encourage others to seek alternative airlines."
Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy on the international flight."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "This flight offers no personal TV in the front seat or even common TV above. In addition, they don't allow you to watch a movie on your computer (one on one hand hold devices) and they charge you $10 to rent an iPad if you want to watch one of their movies. That's totally unacceptable for the price they charged me for my ticket!!! First and last time I use this airline."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful! And the seats were spacious!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so during boarding they were updating us frequently on the status ...but only in Spanish :( I requested a vegan meal when I purchased my ticket one month before the fly date but only received a vegetarian meal :( Entertainment for such a long flight was not complimentary :( Thank you!"
Pros: "Excelente atención y servicio durante el vuelo"
Pros: "Crew were very nice. And the served lots of things. Even bringing us hot towel to wash and bottled water"
Cons: "Seat are to close together to be comfortable. And movie selection was terrible as was the music selection. And the games were hard to work. Luckily I had my own iPad for entertainment."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "No Food, uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing, other than that the crew was courteous and prompt."
Cons: "Before I was allowed to pass through security, the ticketing agents required a paper proof of an onward flight. I only had my onward flight on my phone. They made me go over to the airport printing service (a 10 minute walk with all my luggage) and pay for Internet access and printing. It was stressful and annoying, but I mostly blame the airline's inability to communicate this requirement to me in advance. Also, the border agent didn't even ask if I had an onward flight. He only asked where I lived, glanced at my US passport, and stamped me in. So all that stress I had experienced, plus the additional expense, was for absolutely nothing. Again, I don't blame the ticketing agents for trying to do their jobs. I blame the airline's lack of communication to me despite the abundant number of emails and reminders about my flight, not once were they about printing an onward ticket because apparently Madrid is "from the Ice Age and requires proof in paper." (A direct quote from the agent I spoke to.)"
Pros: "El vuelo de ida me encanto el avión pensé que todos eran iguales amplio y solo tres asientos en la linea central. Este era igual que otras compañías con lo que no hay ventaja comparativa. Iberia es más moderno. Muy descontenta"
