Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The whole experience was great. All the staff was friendly and polite. The seat was very comfortable, and the ability to watch TV or listen to music was great."
Pros: "Very accommodating & hospitable cabin crew. Food is good for economy standard."
Cons: "Limited entertainment options especially for international connecting flights"
Pros: "On time and courteous staff."
Cons: "THIS WAS CANCELLED AT ALMOST THE SAME TIME IT WAS BOOKED."
Cons: "LIAT is an awful company that really makes the west indies look backwards. My flight was canceled by jetblue which rebooked my flight. the ticketing agency spent more than 12 hours trying to contact LIAT with no avail, 10 of those 12 hours I have been waiting for help. LIAT can't accomodate and rebook my flight for the funeral I am supposed to be going to tomorrow, they received payment for my flight and refuse to refund my money so that i can make other arrangements"
Pros: "Overall it was beautiful I will fly jet blue again and again lol"
Cons: "Flight delayed from Raleigh to Boston due to weather. Flight time moved up slightly and we were told by Mike at gate C-8 that we would make our connecting international flight but we didn’t. Total nightmare. Incompetence everywhere’s we looked with this airline. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was professional and nice."
Cons: "They had to check my carry on even though it was so small. Instead of checking tiny carry on, why not check larger and heavier carry one. That matter upset me because I specifically had placed everything that is fragile in that carry on because I get to take it with me so I can be careful with it and it ended up thrown with the rest of the bags."
Pros: "is how comforting that the pilot spoke to us in a generous + friendly way \ 'twas reassuring as the flight attendant seemed disinterested + less able to exude a fruendly manner / I get it - short trip, wknd which she may wish she had had off BUT there may be one person really uncomfortable+not travel savvy that she couldve noticed...Also why review soda+salty snax?"
Pros: "comfortable-best flight in years"
Cons: "why no charge for carry on overhead? this activity is disruptive and slows everything down."
Pros: "I loved Zach. He made me laugh and he was so excited about life. He loves his job and he deserves a raise."
Pros: "The plane left on time, the staff members were attentive and there was more leg room than on other planes."
Cons: "We were very happy when we got seats in rows 3 and 4 but by the time we boarded only 3 of the 4 carry on bags we had made it into the overhead compartments. We had no other checked bags so we had to go to baggage claim for one carry on. People were putting small bags that should go under the seats in the upper compartments."
Pros: "Flight attendant great. Seats comfortable. Flight on time."
Pros: "Staff was fine"
Cons: "4 hours flight with a $2 item for food no no"
Pros: "I have not received my refund after 2 hours on hold"
Pros: "Prior to our flight, our captain made a joke and everyone enjoyed it. The flight attendants were friendly. I enjoyed one of the snacks (Popcorners) and I have never had that as an option on any other flight before. (Although, food would have been a greater alternative.)"
Cons: "There was a little bit of turbulence, which is never fun. (However, the captain did set the expectation prior to each time.) I love when airplanes have personal tv monitors but I strongly dislike the fact that there was a charge for headphones, for the ability to listen. I did not buy any / have entertainment during my flight and CC appeared to be available, but did not work. If it did, I would have provided a higher rating."
Pros: "The flight was on time. the airplane clean and very comfortable. first time flied JET BLUE and i had such a great experience. I will fly Jet blue whenever i go to. Thank you"
Pros: "Free Internet"
Pros: "Terrible customer service!"

Pros: "The gate crew was professional under difficult circumstances."
Cons: "Received seven flight change e-mails from both Kayak and JetBlue:1:27, Gate change, 1:43 2:45, 3:30, 4:00, 4:30, and finally left at 5:05, half an hour after original arrival time. All this, we Were told because off 15 min thunderstorm around 1:30. They did not have an airplane at the gate, and had to bring one over from international arrivals . Allegedly it took over three hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours and I was clear that the flight would be late so a notice beforehand would have helped me to stay at home and come to the airport later rather than sitting around the waiting area when all stores are closed already."
Pros: "There was turbulence and the pilot warned us ahead of time and he was so nice and so funny!"
Pros: "The efficiency and helpful staff was just great."
Pros: "It was fast and got there on time"
Cons: "Wi-Fi was poor"
Pros: "Excellent staff. Very friendly service with a warm smile."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Best crew and flight experiance I have had flying in the CONUS in years!"
Cons: "Itwas too short and I could not enjoy it longer!"
Cons: "Deplaning took too long because too many passengers placed their carry on bags over other passengers’ seats. This caused bottlenecks."

Cons: "That you can't turn off the movie"
Pros: "Seats and leg space"
Pros: "Good experience. Staff were friendly, efficient, and professional."
Pros: "i liked the seats and legroom"
Pros: "Economical with VIP customer service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to waiting for a crew, so we missed our connection in JFK and had to spend the night in JFK (or would've had to spend the night in RDU). Jet Blue does not help pay for hotels, even when the delay is their fault."
Cons: "My bag got damaged"
Pros: "Everything was good. No complaints"
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours while our captain tried to get his female companion on the flight. The flight was already full and apparently her passport was expired. After causing a scene at the gate for over an hour, we finally received a new captain. Completely unacceptable"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight and left me stranded. Extended my day and caused me a lot of aggravation. I will never fly Jet Blue again. You did this for your convenience as the flight was not full."
Pros: "price, service, snacks, entertainment"
Pros: "Very Roomy"
Cons: "They canceled my flight"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Flight was on time. They fed us two meals."
Cons: "Seats in coach are incredibly cramped, and blankets are comically small. The food was pretty terrible and the vegetarian option not particularly nutritious."
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "Crew was kind & friendly. They found my wife and I empty seats where we could stretch out. Food was great too. No complaints."
Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"
Cons: "Having to pay AGAIN for a seat choice. AND IBWAS MADE TO CHECK MY XARRY-ON BAG ALL THE WAY THRU TO ROME! WHY. WHY couldn't it only be checked to Philadelphia.?. That has taken place on other flights. Should not require checking a carry-on all the way thru on an international flight."
Cons: "Seats were too narrow and distance between sets is too small"
Pros: "Direct flight Good crew"
Pros: "Both flights were amazing!"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight. Service was meh."
Cons: "A USB port would be nice!!!"
Pros: "On tume"
Cons: "American and all other airlines need to improve leg room in coach."
Cons: "Delayed flight all day long from 11:58 AM till 8:00 PM, where they blamed it on traffic at RDU airport, weather in Chicago, and finally a maintenance delay for from 2:00 PM till 8 PM before they canceled!"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving which caused me to miss my flight to Prague. The notifications about the delay and next steps for rescheduling the second flight were delayed and sent to the wrong email address."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Raleigh to Philly was cancelled so we missed the flight to Manchester. We booked , through Kayak, with British Air and paid extra for premium economy and the actual carrier, American, doesn’t know how to process a refund and no such seats are available on our rebooked flight 24 hours later so it has been frustrating."
Pros: "Crew was extremely helpful on boarding and on flight. Breezed through Passport area. Everyone went our of his/her way to answer our questions and then make suggestions."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Ok food and drinks. Newer777."
Cons: "Long flights are pure torture in these small seats."
Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."
Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The flight was 30 minutes faster than initially scheduled. It was great."
Cons: "The flight left 10 minutes late, but on my positive comments, this was remedied in the end."
Pros: "Economy class seats better than UA."
Cons: "Economy class seats always have room for improvement."
Pros: "Not over crowded and friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew we're very pleasant & friendly. The flight was on time even though we sat in the runway for a bit."
Cons: "Having to pay 3 Euros for a cup of coffee. And the seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Pros: "Nice aircraft,"
Cons: "let down by unattentive staff and felt more like a budget airline with the fact that you have to pay for meals"
Pros: "Pleasant crew; clean and generally comfortable"
Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
Cons: "Flights out of RDU to Philly were late. AA will not let you get on another flight going to the same destination if your checked luggage has been committed to particular flight beforehand. You have to fly with your luggage."
Pros: "Love the direct flights from RDU to West Coast. Wish there were more cities on the list. The flight was delayed about 45 minutes after we boarded for take off. I hate sitting on planes idling. The seats are already uncomfortable, then add more time onto that to sit. But we made up the time in the air for an on time arrival. Hmmmm?"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight at dinner time and then the 3 hour time change, the snacks provided are not enough. You just have to remember to bring food on the plane and then risk annoying your fellow passengers with the food/dinner dining space. More checks of drinks would be nice too. Cost cutting measures, but minimal considering a packed flight and pretty high ticket price."
Pros: "- Great entertainment system and choices - Timely departure and arrival"
Cons: "- Marginal seat and leg room comfort for a 5'11'', 180lbs passenger"
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "We made it home safely"
Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."
Cons: "Maintenance delay caused me a 4 hour delay getting home on a work night. Going to be a long day tomorrow. Switched connector to United."
Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Pros: "We landed, eventually."
Cons: "The flight was late. Also, they only accept cash onboard for refreshments. That has the consequence of the crew getting on the PA system asking people for change, and scurrying around the cabin in a desperate shell game exchanging bills. It's 2016. Get with the program and accept credit cards."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."
Pros: "Loved that we were on time and that the counter personal were polite and patient."
Pros: "Gate agent super helpful and nice. Flight attendant gave me two coffees, which was was needed."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the pilot was honest about how delayed we would be."
Cons: "AA was not upfront or clear on delays at all. The plane was very delayed and they did not communicate clearly."
Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "I froze the entire time"
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Never offered any of the food they were walking by with. Only 1st class got everything"
Pros: "Service, comfort, timeliness."
Cons: "Food was marginal, especially the chicken in the salad, which was petrified."
Pros: "Everything was on time, no delays."
Pros: "The delay of 1 1/2 hours far exceeded the 30 minute flight."
Cons: "They ran out of food people would actually like to purchase and all that was left was cruddy Mac and cheese, pizza and truly awful sushi made by someone who has both never tried but inexorably hates it."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The cabin announcements were rapidly spoken and hard to understand. The seats are too close together. The flight was overheated, stuffy air, too hot."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean flight"
Pros: "Super comfortable business class seats"
Cons: "Didn't take this flight because it was late and would have caused me to miss my connection. I got rebooked on a different flight that delayed me 10+ hours."
Pros: "Better staff than normally, which was both surprising and pleasant. Flight made it on time for the changeover in Zurich, which is very important."
Cons: "Extra charge for luggage - it showed up in the itinerary only after everything has been paid for. And even the paid suitcase allowed 23 kg only. It has been just over TEN years ago that you had two suitcases at 32 kg each included in price! Does the airline seriously believe that you can travel around the world with just a swim trunk in your pocket? This policy is an insult to any world traveller. We do not all go into an all-inclusive resort! The only drink offered during the flight was plain water, again a step down from before where they also offered others, e.g. orange juice. Seating - now that big persons have the right for two seats for the price of one, when will the same rational apply to tall people?"
Pros: "Luckily had an empty seat next to me. Good tv and movies to watch"
Cons: "Crew wasn't super friendly, missed 2 meals because we were asleep, time between food and drink offerings too long"
Pros: "The only person who who tried to relax customers waiting to board was the pilot. Flight was delayed. No updates on monitors, no crew at desk. The pilot was first to arrive and had no information but was engaging and joked with all the passengers just standing around. He was our only assurance that flight was still going. He had same attitude on the plane and seemed determined to get us home eventually."
Cons: "No communication from airline. The flight was delayed but we only find out because we show up to gate and nobody is there. No counter agents. When they eventually show up, there is no explanation. Just acted like everything was normal."
Pros: "Flights left at the scheduled time"
Cons: "Planes are very uncomfortable. There is no entertainment in the cabin (tv, music)"
Cons: "The flight got cancelled way in advance and nobody neither airlines nor webjet.com informed us about it. Also, nobody could replace our tickets for the next day either. So our flight didn't happen and we had to drive to Washington DC to find a flight from there. So we will never buy any tickets from Kayak or Webjet.com! Extremely poor service"
Cons: "delayed and sat on tarmac for 2.5 hrs"
Cons: "Plane was cramp, no inflight refreshments offered other than beverage. No entertainment available on flight."
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to DFW was a basic experience. It was the last leg of a long trip, so our family did our best to sleep through the late flight. The only thing I noticed was a generally blasé attitude by the flight attendant when our toddler woke up to ear pain during descent. Her colleagues on the previous leg had been much more helpful. She wasn't rude - just left us to manage the crying, which we were fine to do for what I am sure felt like an eternity to fellow passengers."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over an hour prior to takeoff due to "refuelling difficulties - plane fault. No coffee on a 6 am flight!!! No offer of water, snack whilst waiting on plane."
Pros: "Great trip very easy very quick! Seats where comfy I had a good flight"
Pros: "Son enjoyed seeing Niagara Falls from the air"
Pros: "We got to Toronto"
Cons: "Those seats are tight. Also, the crew at the Toronto airport seemed to get mixed up a bit showing us where the transfer queue was."
Cons: "Bumped off a direct flight from Toronto to Fort lauderdale with 6 other people. We all booked back in february. They are overbooking 5 to 10 percent now and kicking off the people who paid the least. There is no advantage to booking early only to be bumped. At the gate the AC employee said we would be credited 3 to 4 hundred dollars but we had to run to the customer service desk and then hop on an AC flight to Houston connecting with United Airlines to Fort Lauderdale. At the customer service desk a herd of people waited anxiously to be re booked and compensated. When they started handing out notice that they would send us 200 in the mail there was an uproar that fell on deaf ears. We then ran to get on the houston flight only to find out that flight was overbooked as well. We had to wait to see if they had any no shows. Fortunately I was able to stay on the plane. Upon arriving in Houston we were quickly ran to the United airline gate only to find out that Air Canada had dropped the ball again. We were not booked on the flight. Five of us had no seats booked , while I was booked to depart on a morning flight the next day with no accomodations arranged? Fortunately for us United Airlines picked up the ball and some how got us on the plane to Fort Lauderdale. Upon arriving around 1140pm! should have arrived at 5:20pm direct! we quickly ran to the AC terminal to get our luggage that was originally checked on the first flight. We were told that it would be there. AC employees with no concern at all told us it's not here and it would have been on the united flight that we just arrived on. After I explained that we werent even scheduled to be on the United flight by air canada, so there's no way it made it onto the plane. They looked at us like we were idiots, closed thier office doors and walked away. We ran back to the other terminal( shuttle buses stop at 11pm in Fort Lauderdale?) only to find no luggage again. Fortunately United picks up the ball again and traces our luggage back to Toronto, AC pulled it and left it sitting there. Because of Air Canada's inept employees I missed my rental car reservation and had to buy new clothes for the wedding the next day. They said they'd have the luggage to me by 11 am , it arrived at 11:30 pm the next day. Save yourself the hassel, fly any other airline other then the iconic continually bailed out by the federal goverment airline. If you know, no matter how bad your company and service is ,you will always be bailed out would you work hard? Probably not, hence the atrocious attitude and poor performance of this dead horse airline."
Pros: "Very professional but also pleasant. Clean, good food."
Pros: "Both my first and connecting flights were delayed despite excellent weather. No explanation was offered."
Pros: "There were a couple guys sitting behind us who kept asking the stewardesses for more beer and more wine. And the stewardesses kept giving them for what they asked (free). These guys became loud - as drunks do. It was annoying as we couldn't hear the movie we were watching because those guys were so loud. Any alcohol being served out of meal time either should be charged or put a limit of two max."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant."
Cons: "Entertainment options very poor considering it is a 5 hr flight. Hadn't realized that they actually made planes without a seat back screen these days! Too many people allowed to bring too much hand luggage on board. Significantly delayed the process of getting people seated. Also, anxiety levels of passengers increases when they start to realize they will have nowhere to put their luggage. Not the perfect start to any flight."
Cons: "We had to purchase food ."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight attendants were pleasent."
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment were both good. Food can be improve."
Cons: "Boarding was bad in Zurich, unorganized. Need improvement"
Pros: "Media and staff very good"
Cons: "Airport was empty, plane was empty. But still had to wait to get on due to filled with people who put suitcases away that sat near front but not first class."
Cons: "Small legroom and poor selection in the entertainment provided via wifi"
Cons: "I cannot believe the nickel and dining of this company. I was on a 3 hour international flight (just USA to Canada, but still), and they served no snacks. Not even a bag of pretzels! Forget about free alcoholic beverages you normally get on international flights."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and on top of things. Prompt service and very pleasant."
Cons: "The wifi movies and tv were not captioned in English for the deaf and hard of hearing. Accessibility was not provided."
Pros: "Great service good food and drinks love it!"
Cons: "There was a baby kept crying the whole trip but I know that's something you can't help. Hahaha but everything else was good"
Cons: "Needed subtitles on movies"
Pros: "On time. Clean. Efficient"
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Coach"
Pros: "Flying out RDU, it was delayed for 3+ hours without any reason. Took close to an hour to change flights at RDU with a very grumpy agent. I was told that I could delay a day and fly the same route the next day, or fly to Toronto, stay there a night paid by Air Canada. Was advised to stay at Toronto since the flight from RDU to Toronto delay excessively with high frequency (and it was delayed 6+ hour the next day). Flied to Toronto, was shuffled through different lines without getting anything. At 10:40PM, after arrived 1 hour 40+ minutes, sent to a line with more than 100 people in front of me..... :-( It's a horrible experience!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "A wonderful agent named Danyelle Mariner in Raleigh did an excellent job finding us an alternative flight when she saw that we would not make our connecting flight in Toronto. Thanks"
Cons: "There seems to be a problem with the Toronto flights in the afternoon. If they are all being rescheduled change the plan."
Pros: "Leg room was great."
Cons: "The pilot wasn't that good. It wasn't a smooth landing at all."
Cons: "The flight boarded, departed, and landed late causing me to miss my flight to Tel Aviv."
Cons: "There is streaming provided over local wifi, but no way to charge devices so once devices are dead there is nothing you can do."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a non-stop flight."
Cons: "There were so many things I didn't like. First of all, the departure time was delayed by 30 minutes. Not cool. Secondly, the plane itself felt very small and old. It was very cold inside the plane which made the ride very uncomfortable. Thirdly, there was absolutely no in-flight entertainment on this flight, making it a very boring experience. I would not recommend this kind of air travel!"
Pros: "Very smooth and easy flight. Very friendly staff."
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Crew was strangely inflexible about rules that I had not encountered before- being only in ticketed seat until at altitude (the flight was very empty), only specific headphones during takeoff & ascent, no headphones or electronic devices at all during final descent and landing."
Pros: "Large selection of movie and music. Friendly crew"
Cons: "No internet on flights"
Pros: "I had upgraded to economy plus for my trip from Toronto and asked for an aisle seat. The plane was full so I was asked to wait till I was called. When they called me back they gave me a free upgrade to first class. I am a gold status United passenger so that may have had something to do with it but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The crew was wonderful, the food was excellent and the entertainment was terrific. I totally appreciated the ability to sleep over the 13 hour trip in the bed provided. I have not had such a lovely experience in many years. I thank Air Canada for their generosity and kindness to me. Sincerely, Doryth Deisley"
Cons: "The flight was chaneed gates and not announced that it had been done, we just noticed that it had been reassigned. Not a big deal but it was a 10 minute walk to the new gate and could have resulted in a missed flight if we hadn't been paying attention. The flight was also delayed over an hour and still listed as an on time boarding for the original boarding time, people can make choices about eating or restroom breaks if they know they have an extra hour, also when travelling with a toddler it helps with planning feedings and naps so that the baby doesn't scream the whole flight."
Cons: "Horrible - they kept us sitting on the runway for 5 hours and then cancelled our flight. the next day, they put another flight at our same gate that was to leave 5 minutes before ours and then the flight was delayed 3 hours because of issues with the plane - which had been sitting in the garage all day so they should have seen the problems before."
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "Entertainment was decent, and one of the crew members was very kind. The others seemed overworked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours for maintenance, which was better than flying with a maintenance problem. Would have appreciated better information/communication about the delay."
Pros: "Roomy seats."
Cons: "Air Canada lost my luggage."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable. Good service. But small overhead baggage space. Had to put my carry on under a seat. For those francophones, you'll find that the flight attendant's (there's only one) bilingualism is rather poor. YYZ Toronto Pearson Airport however disappointed me: very poor indications for connecting flights and gate areas."
