Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "We got the extended leg room seat we asked for, but next time I will be a bit more particular about its position. The problem was we were right behind the Business/Economy partition, which a) limited our stowage and b) it was a passageway for passengers getting from on aisle to the other."

Pros: "Were very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment only worked sporadiaclly, crew tried toreaet it numerous times"
Pros: "Premium Economy seats were spacious. And from the looks of it so were economy. They provided nice over the ear headsets which made watching movies nice."

Cons: "Tight seating. Outdated entertainment technology. Inconvenient food packaging for such tight seating environment. First time flying British Airways; for no particular reason, I expected better."
Pros: "I loved the side compartment next to my seat in the upper deck of the airbus. This was an amazing airplane to fly in and I hope someday to afford the opportunity to experience First class. The cabin crew was very attentive and our attendant, in particular, was helpful. He made sure that we had our special meal and the whole staff was very attentive."
Pros: "Food was good. I liked that boarding And check-in went quickly."
Cons: "The pilot flew too close to a lightning storm near South Dakota. Really bad turbulence as dinner was being served. It was quite scary and my wife and I lost our appetite. Attendants were also slow to pick up our trays afterward."

Pros: "Just so comfortable and friendly. I'll fly them again next time!"
Cons: "I was sleeping during meal time and when I woke up an hour later they told me that my meal was now below the temperature that they're allowed to serve it because it's dangerous. so I got bread instead. It's ridiculous either they serve me half the meal still frozen and the other half too hot too touch or it's considered unsafe."
Cons: "It was difficult to get our seat assignments."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Aer Lengus is great. Complete contrast with the trip from the US to Heathrow with BA-D. That leg was horrible, one of top two worst over my 30+?years of traveling internationally Viva Aer Lengus comfort and customer relations, what a difference with BA-Disastrous customer support in Heathrow"
Cons: "Aer Lengus is great"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Attentive and amusing."
Cons: "I hate that the armrests don't raise up only halfway, so if you happen to luck out and have an empty seat next to you, you will can't lie down comfortably."
Pros: "Very little. BA customer service is brusque and focussed on getting rid of you as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Trolley service - aside from poor range, high prices & getting missed as they weren't interested in service...."
Pros: "Amazing airline to travel I will definitely used again in the future"
Pros: "Vueling uniforms."
Cons: "The most tightest and uncomfortable plane ride in my life. Stop flying your customers on such an awful plane especially executive club members."
Pros: "Air crew were good but could not help with the problems"
Cons: "broken table Broken TV therefore no entertainment for over 5 hrs"
Cons: "I was sitting in business class and the crew ignored the passengers for most of the flight. They sounded like they were having a party in the galley."
Pros: "Individually the crew was quite nice and tried to do their best to their best."
Cons: "Dirty toilets. No toilet seat covers. Ran out of toilet paper. No oversight to basic hygiene given a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "The free entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed 19 hrs due to crew illness. We were given a hotel room but the promised meal vouchers did not come through and BA would not answer the phone calls of the hotel staff to verify meal money. Missed a whole day of our vacation as we could not reschedule our connection until 24 hrs late. After the long wait the first day to be told what was going on, with much anxiety, on the second day there was also a delay boarding. Although it was short, of course everyone was on edge. And BA did not tell us what was happening!!"
Pros: "The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence."
Cons: "I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! There was also an hr + delay without prior notification sent via email."
Pros: "The crew and service are very good and the cabin crews' smile are so nice. Love it"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
Cons: "Took 1 1/2 hour to check in at counter. Agent spoke minimal english and directed Czech in one line and all others in another line. even when that line was only 2 or 3 persons and someone walked up only waited 5 minutes our line hardly moved. The agent did not care or understood that a lot of people may miss the flight. We arrived 2.5 hours early and barely made the flight."
Pros: "The crew made this flight."
Cons: "Very slow operations at the Heathrow airport."
Pros: "Cleanness and convenience."
Cons: "Seat selection only 24 hours ahead."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice. The food was also nice. I had a gluten free meal and it was enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was old there were no tvs on the seats so the "in flight entertainment" was awful. When you plugged headphones in there was an awful noise that prevented you from hearing anything from the movie/show. Considering this was a transatlantic flight, the plane should have been better. We were also delayed due to maintenance that needed to be done on the flight. Luckily London was my last stop so I was not late for anymore flights but a lot of people on the plane were. I was very disappointed and will be disappointed again if my return flight has the same issues."
Pros: "ON TIME flights! Check in process was super easy. Good food. Felt well taken care of by crew."
Cons: "Boarding not done by rows."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
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."
Cons: "A better snack option would be appreciated"
Cons: "Although we "upgraded" to a front row with supposedly extra legroom, the dividing panel in front was closer than a row of seating would be and there was no room to stretch legs. Painful!"
Pros: "Staff put in awful position to deal with upset clients Dealt with it as best as can be expected."
Cons: "Every time we have travelled from Chicago to Toronto, the flight gets cancelled. Had to leave 0230 to get to airport only to find that flight at 0800 was cancelled. Ugh!"
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: "it took so long to taxi and get off the plane. it wasnt a full flight and it took 30 minutes to get off the plane after landing"
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."
Cons: "The condescending flight attendant at the gate who wouldn't assign me a seat and gave me guilt for not paying for extra leg room or preferred seating when Air Canadas site wasn't working"
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."
Pros: "Crew was great and very helpful when needed!"
Cons: "There were no TVs or Audio Jacks for entertainment for such a long flight. They did have an iPad available for a cost."
Cons: "THe food as usual on AC flights is only passable. . The warm rolls as advertised are ice cold. Some of your flight attendants can often be rude to customers and many could benefit from attending Weight Watchers as they can scarcely make it down the aisles and often bump into customers."
Pros: "I love that I had a direct flight for my destination, from TLV to Pearson Int'l, at a decent price. This is usually hard to come by. The in flight entertainment options are very good. The online check-in process worked very well."
Cons: "The service on my original TLV-Pearson Flight (Dec 23rd am) was not great. The staff sat in the back gossiping the entire time and looked offended every time I came to ask a question or ask for something - they would get silent and just sit there, like I was interrupting an important conversation and so I even offered to get my own stuff. Ridiculous! What happened to customer service? The food is HORRIBLE! Worst food I have ever had on a flight, and I flew to 8 countries this last year, so that says a lot. I'd recommend only eating food you bring, or just starving yourself."
Pros: "flight was on time, movie selection was great, comfortable three hour flight, flight attendants were awesome. I will fly air canada again if the price is right."
Cons: "What I didn't like is out of the control of the air canada staff. People can't follow simple instructions regarding when and how to board."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about the flight except that it was a smooth one."
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed by four hours. The food was bad."
Cons: "They had known about a mechanical issue all day and did not notify anyone until 1 hour before departure. They ultimately had to get another plane but only after >4hr delay. Seems to me like delay could have been avoided or at least predicted so we could have made appropriate arranements. Big domino effect of inconvenience on the last day of the year makes for very bad experience."
Pros: "The trip to Dublin via Toronto on the way out was much better than the flights home."
Cons: "Delays and 24 hour layover."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "35 minute delay in departing. Sat on plane at gate waiting to depart."
Cons: "They need a better system for boarding. It took forever to get us all on board. And it was hard to hear which zone they were boarding since the passengers were so noisy. there should've been lanes for the different zones so they could usher us all in orderly. It was a chaotic mess without lanes. There was no entertainment if you didn't download their app onto your electronic device. No snacks were offered either. I didn't pay for a meal but it would've been nice to have some pretzels or something like that. The controls for the lights, and attendant call button were on the hand rest. It was very uncomfortable since it was a raised section, and more than once I turned on the light without meaning to do so. I won't fly Air Canada Rouge ever again, if I can help it."
Pros: "Super nice crew!"
Cons: "Inaudible boarding"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and considerate. Food was satisfactory and timed appropriately. Entertainment device worked and offered adequate variety. The aircraft itself was clean and comfortable. It was not overly air-conditioned as aircraft tend to be."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and confusing: verbal instructions conflicted with posted signs, and it was hard to choose the right lines. Arrival in Canada was a nightmare! Customs and security were confusing, inefficient, and staffed by people who had little patience. There was much yelling and running around., there appeared to be little sympathy or concern for the dozens of passengers who were attempting to make connecting flights, and it was ridiculous to announce that security closed at 9p.m. .when there were planes on the runway awaiting connecting passengers and people with boarding passes who were not allowed to catch their flights."
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me; the flight wasn't full, so I was able to stretch out more comfortably. The crew was very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize I needed the app to access entertainment, and I had no way to download it when I got to the plane. I saw that a leg of my journey was on Rouge, and assumed it would be a shorter leg, not the longest. It was disappointing."
Cons: "Delays on every leg of our flight. Missed our evening flight to USA and had to spend the night in Canada to fly out the next day. Desk agent service was atrocious!"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The gate changed 4 times and there was confusion at final boarding. The Toronto airport TSA agents have absolutely no manners and need to be retrained or fired. Traveling has become very stressful and try make it worse. There was a Hispanic girl, heavy set with curly hair yelling at us to approach the scanners. I talked to her asking her to be gentle with us because we'd just flown for 7 hours and are suffering from time zone changes. Another yelled at my seatmate about his travel size after shave. She was a black Caribbean. She snapped at me about the importance of security and that he was rude for saying he didn't care that she'd throw his stuff away. I told her that he said he didn't care because he's tired and quite frankly, a trail sized aftershave that she doesn't approve actually doesn't matter and is nothing for her to get worked up about. Her colleagues were all staring at her as she started throwing her weight around and making unprofessional nonverbal noises. Then there the room where you weight for your name on the screen to appear if your number is 1 or 2. The people in there are extremely gruff. There was only one Hispanic woman who took my slip of paper that had my pic who said please and thank you. Then when you go to customs to get your passport signed, the guy at counter 10 starts arguing with me for no reason. I put 1 family member on the customs form. He asked if anyone is traveling with me. I said no. He clarified that one should mean an additional person and not just me traveling. I said it wasn't clear and I didn't know. But he decided to get argumentative with me about it until I said ok and walked away. Your TSA process is a nightmare. I did not experience that at Heathrow, Vienna, Or Tel Aviv (all places that have recently experienced terrorism). I didn't even experience it in my arrival town Denver. Toronto TSA is very very poor."
Pros: "Flight attends were very attentive to all passengers. I especially liked that they kept everyone hydrated by offering drinks every couple of hours."
Pros: "Attractive and competent flight attendants What a soft landing"
Cons: "Water tasted off Leg room inadequate for 6'1" person French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Pros: "The flight seats were great. Spacious, charging ports, cheap flight, and had entertainment in-flight."
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"
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "Seat had decent leg room, but had to pay an additional $60+ dollars for it."
Cons: "Paying for food on a flight that's over 5 hours is very poor form. Food was of very poor quality. Beverage service came around once early on and then not again until almost landing. Asked for another beverage about half way through the flight and it never came. Plane was dirty."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, Pilot was informative"
Cons: "Seats, Trays and bathrooms were disgusting. My tray had food on it, was sticky, had coffee stains... i didnt want to use it. Bathroom was disgusting, even at begining of flight. Seat was dirty and worn out."
Pros: "Some crew members were nice."
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: "Got to spread out onto two seats since flight was not crowded."
Cons: "Food options. No inflight seat with entertainment screen."
Pros: "Friendly crew and nice experience overall, entertainment top notch"
Cons: "Could not buy food with my debit card.....was hungry"
Pros: "Wonderful service while on board"
Cons: "Very little space to move for such a long flight."
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: "Had the good fortune of an under-booked flight, allowing more space to spread out."
Cons: "Flight departed about 75 minutes behind schedule, but if that was necessary to ensure a safe flight, I'm fine with the delay. We still make our connection, thanks to prompt assistance at the airport."
Pros: "Most things where fine. Slight delay in boarding but still made our connection."
Cons: "Tried to signal stewards for another beverage but got no response. Lack of customer service."
Pros: "Good selection of viewing content. Wide variety. Like the NFB channel."
Cons: "The food was the worst plane food I have eaten in 25 years of traveling. It wasn't even edible!! Overcooked, dry, tasteless, awful food! Shocking at how bad it was. Bathrooms were very dirty right from beginning of flight."
Pros: "This flight was ok."
Cons: "Flight to TOR was delayed due to multiple maintenance issues on >1 aircraft in TOR, so it didn't leave for BWI until past the original departure time. Needless to say, we missed our connection to Paris. Agents were great in re-ticketing us thru LHR to CDG, gave us info on who to talk to to get bags realigned, went to that agent who said system would automatically update the bags. Upon arrival in Paris, bags were not there, will arrive on the flight today from TOR. Since we're going to Normandy we are driving out to CDG, to pick up bags versus waiting at the apartment for a delivery."
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."
Pros: "the aircraft is beautiful and new. the services were great. there was plenty of movies to chose from."
Cons: "a little tight in my space. It's ok for a short flight, but not in far away flights"
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "Really flight was very good, but seats to family member given separate seperate."
