Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "Just awful!!!! Original lay over was 2 hours in Cartagena it became 7 hours. Missed my rental car. Missed my first day at the hotel Los recuerdos!! Just awful. I need something done."

Cons: "Carry in bags were searched and we were patted down for some reason."

Pros: "The crew was nice and the boarding was relatively quick"
Cons: "Old airplanes, no entertainment, broken seats, overall very bad airplanes and not a good service offered. The airline should get newer planes."

Cons: "Bad variety of movies"

Pros: "The way they are with the passengers"

Pros: "It was a delayed for 4 hours and even then was another dalayed of 48 minutes"

Cons: "Airline connecting flight from rio to Lima to miami. First flight was delayed, the four of us missed our second flight. Then we had to go to bogota from Lima and run to make it to our last flight. All of this made us miss work and sleep, 26 in airports and airplanes. The worst experience. Rude staff on top of it all"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and they seemed wine as one of the beverages"
Cons: "The staff was rude to everyone including older adults. They constantly rolled their eyes. It was so disrespectful. At one point I was returning from the bathroom to my seat and was scolded by a flight attendant to return to me seat. I thought it was Adam Avianaca flight and was very disappointed. Crew was from Spain, I believe"

Pros: "Flight cancelled multiple times, no explanations only lies."
Cons: "To be treated like garbage."

Pros: "I Liked my especial food request. Movies and a big A330"

Pros: "I liked the time of the flight, that's about all."
Cons: "Avianca is one of the most dreadful international airlines imaginable. I could fill a book with the problems I've experienced. I fly often on many different airlines. This one needs new management; someone who actually cares."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "1:15 mi utes delayed."

Cons: "No very confortable , food was not good, entertainment was ok."

Pros: "Good service, friendly staff, speedy check in"
Cons: "Annoying kids behind us on the return flight."

Cons: "More communication needed! I was randomly relocated and searched by airport security...fine, but at least some information should be provided to husbands or traveling companions. We are seniors, my husband is not going to leave me in a foreign country . My boarding pass was taken , after the search I was told to get on the plane. My husband was provided no information until it was his turn to board ,he was panicked... The airline should communicate with traveling companions the procedure ! I am an retired airline employee, we realize that airport security is not in your hands but communication would keep family members calm. We had a wonderful time in Columbia but this does nothing good for a Country that wants more Tourism."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Delayed, lost of conection."

Pros: "Although not many the selection of movies had a good variety"
Cons: "The food was horrible"

Pros: "Lounge in Rio was great but flight service was Average."
Cons: "Service was non existent. Food was bad. They never come back and ask you if you want anything. Once in the air service doesn’t start for One hour"

Cons: "No prior notification was given about the yellow fever requirements on the trip from Brazil to Columbia."

Cons: "I was not allowed on the flight, but I was allowed to book the flight without being warned that I must have a yellow fever certificate to travel to Costa Rica after I have been to Brazil, Avianca airline staff are EXTREMELY RUDE and would not admit it was their fault for not displaying the correct details in the booking details. NEVER AGAIN,"

Cons: "Flight got delay 3 hours and lost connections avianca behaves really bad and did not provided the appropriate remuneration"

Cons: "My flight was changed from having 1 layover, to having 2 and getting back much later in the day. When I got to the airport, my flight had been changed again to have 3 layovers and getting back the next morning. When I spoke with a representative at the Rio airport she said she couldn't do anything for me but to ask at my next layover where they could switch me to a direct flight. When I asked at that airport, they said they didn't even fly direct flights. Worst airline experience I've ever had."

Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold. I had to complain strongly and asked to see the manager. Finally I was able to fly, but after much arguing and stress. Poor experience."

Pros: "That I was able to stop in Bogota on my way to Rio"
Cons: "Flight delays outbound (4 hours) Flight delay on Return Flight (14 hours) The Avianca Rio de Janeiro land crew was very disorganized. Long lines to check in and help others to fix the delay and re-routes, while many Avianca employees were standing around."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed for over 6 hours. Poor communication by airline. Terrible airline."

Pros: "The plane was not old, on time, the staff great"
Cons: "The food was good but could be a little better.. the space for legs it's not big"

Pros: "I appreciated the amount of food and drink offered, and the flight attendants were extremely helpful."
Cons: "There were no televisions on our seats."

Pros: "The planes had individual entertainment systems"
Cons: "First flight delayed causing us to miss connection by 3 minutes. A large group of people on our plane missed the same flight. We had to wait 9 hours with 2 kids for the next flight with only a free fast food lunch offered as compensation."

Cons: "It took two hours in line to be told our flight was cancelled. After waiting another hour we were told they did not have alternative flights for us. They refused to have conversation and would randomly leave to the back office for 20 minutes at a time or stop assisting people at all. There were people screaming at the ticketing counter and security was called. In the end we spent 14 hours waiting there for a new flight, got split up and sent to different countries, had to miss work, and were not given any flight credit, accommodation, or even an apology."

Pros: "I like the comfort measures of this ~2.5 hour flight each way trip without being "nickel and dimed" like what happens on the so-called "economy" airlines."

Pros: "Food was really good."
Cons: "In the seats close to the bathroom of economic class it was impossible to sleep. The sound from the discgarge was horrible!!!! In a flight of 6h it is really important."

Cons: "I lost my flight because I did not receive any notification that avianca wasn't allowing people to get on the plane to Bogota from Rio de janeiro without a yellow fever vaccine certificate. Keeping in mind that my departure flight was from Bogota with the same airline. So I lost my return flight and avianca wouldn't give me any discount on getting a new one."

Pros: "The video selection is pretty good"
Cons: "My vegetarian meal was the same both times--soggy bread, unflavored squash. The worst vegetarian meal I've ever had in 10 years."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great"

Pros: "The movie selection, crew very profesional, bathroom was always clean, everything move fast and on yime"

Cons: "flight was scheduled mzl to bog 10:46 am, bog to mia 2:07 pm, when I arrived to airport in mzl I was told flight had been cancelled, I was not notified I literally had to beg and show that I have multiple sclerosis , I had to show medical records in order to be put in the next flight so I would not lose my connection to mia."

Pros: "The crew was kind and courteous. We were fed often, and given plenty of fluids"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight from GIG to JFK is good. I enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "The only problem is it took a little longer to wait for our luggage in JFK airport."

Cons: "Missed connection both ways"

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "Attendants could be rude at times"

Pros: "Lights were dim to facilitate sleeping"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I arrived at my destination with everything."
Cons: "1. I accepted a voucher in exchange for getting bumped from an overbooked flight. I gave it to my friend. It's very difficult to use. I won't do it again unless it's for a lot of money, or cash. 2. My screen didn't work on the plane."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "too crowded"

Cons: "Top carrier"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Reading lights did not power during first 40 minutes of flight. Had an aisle seat originally but after upgrading to comfort+ got bumped to a middle seat"

Pros: "Seat comfortable and the seatbelts actually fit!"
Cons: "Nothing relly"

Pros: "Cree was great. The switch from one airplane to another was smooth. Snacks were great selection and enjoyed the WiFi"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "this is the airline"

Pros: "Nothing three hours late I went to dc and then took the train"

Pros: "Crew was really nice."
Cons: "My first flight was delay because of that I lost my second flight."

Cons: "We left Salt Lake City so late that I missed all my train connections and ruined my plans."

Pros: "Standard boarding The plane was on time"
Cons: "Better boarding process.Such as the one used by Southwest"

Pros: "The flight was on time the crew and captain was very helpful. They got us on and off quickly and safe"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Almost 3 hours of delayed"
Cons: "Almost"

Pros: "Crew was the best I have had in 2019 on Delta, the only good crew."
Cons: "Everything at the Atlanta Airport. From the airport and staff itself to those working for Delta Airlines. It has been so bad, that I am thinking of flying with American Airlines again and avoiding the Atlanta Airport all together. Absolutely the worst airport in the country, Delta not much better"

Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid to be in row 1 first class, when I checked in I was in the first row, then as I boarded I was told my seat changed to the back row in first class for no reason at all. I choose the 1st row for a ready and I expect to sit there! 2 flights in a row that Delta moved my seat for no reason"

Pros: "Entertaining crew"
Cons: "On time arrival (we were late)."

Pros: "I like flying Delta. Make you feel comfortable and at ease."

Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was so short, there was little interaction with them."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster, people didn’t have seats which caused a delay in boarding. It was a mess. The seats were uncomfortable and too small. I know it’s a short flight but it was just too tight in there. The flight was delayed and the communication was all over; the time was constantly changin"

Pros: "Don't know yet, because I have not left Korea."
Cons: "Not happy that DELTA changed my flight again and now I arrive (6) hours later in Philly. Longer layover in Detroit is not comforting! Hoping/praying that DELTA doesn't change more on this flight going home!"

Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "terrible seat comfort, late departure due to airline’s booking problems"

Pros: "We left early"

Pros: "Flight was safe, smooth & fast."

Pros: "Pilot was courteous, pleasant and kept us informed of flight status."

Cons: "Seats have no leg room!!!"

Pros: "It was too cold on the flight. I asked for a blanket and luckily the stewardess had one. However, before giving it to me, she told me it was the only one on the flight!"

Pros: "Smooth , fast, comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "No TV unfortunately"

Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."

Pros: "Everything, smooth flight with an entertaining crew."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The exit row seats reclined."
Cons: "USB charging didn't appear to work. No meal service. Very brief lay over. This is bad because a 6A flight from RNO to SLC with a <50m layover and then a SLC to PHL flight means that you do not get any food until 11P when landing in PHL."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight. No smoking in Minneapolis airport"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The staff were friendly, the flight fast and calm."
Cons: "Nothing that can be done, just tough being 6'5" in a connection plane."

Pros: "Made it out of Detroit that same day! Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And then cancelled. We were booked into a later flight 8 hours later that was also delayed again due to weather but we did make it out of Detroit that night. Other people were not as lucky."

Pros: "They have great and friend staff."
Cons: "Delta treats any passenger that isn't a member of their skymiles or anyone that doesn't purchase a seat in advance like peasants. You don't get assigned a seat until YouTube up at the airport... That's fine, not really a big deal. But because you didn't select a seat, they don't let you print or view your boarding pass on your phone, forcing you to go to the checking desk. For someone that has TSA pre check and travels alot, all that extra time adds up and can sometimes cause you to miss your flight. Because there is on "fast line" when you check-in like there is at the security check point. I only have this problem with Delta, never American airlines..."

Cons: "my flight from JFK to Cancun had entertainment (TV, movie screen, headphones, etc). This one did not. Was kinda disappointed."

Pros: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."
Cons: "Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "Only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Like everyone, I dislike the tight seating."

Cons: "If flight is full all the time get a bigger plane"

Cons: "NO ENTERTAINMENT no snacks on the second flight after an hr 24 layover AND 52 minutes delay, seat near the bathroom which smelled horrible"

Cons: "All "carry-ons" were taken at the jetway, which was fine. But, when we landed, as passengers were trying to get off of the plane, the attendants were putting all of the collected luggage at the entry to the jetway. It created congestion. Then, anyone who had luggage, had to lineup against the side of the jetway, awaiting their luggage, and increasing the congestion. First, it was inconvenient. Worse, if there was any kind of emergency, I believe it would have created a unsafe environment. Very Poor Design & Process ! ! !"

Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."

Pros: "Good Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats"

Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Space"

Pros: "The attendants"
Cons: "The delay and no free wifi."

Pros: "entertainment options are great. The flights are plentiful, so lots of options."
Cons: "No options for vegans on 10 hour flight!! Shame on you!! Our needs should be considered."

Pros: "Tail winds provided an early arrival. When my flight was rebooked due to a delay on my first booking I was upgraded to Permium booking and drinks were complementary on the flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia."

Cons: "Super loud. Couldn't talk to anyone without shouting. No view out the window, as the engine was about 5 inches outside the glass. Not sure why there even were windows for these seats, as they probably just let in more sound. Also right next to the bathroom, so frequently smelled bad."

Pros: "The staff member at the gate was friendly."
Cons: "No staff at all to help with checking in bags. No communication from the pilot or crew about what was causing delays, or estimated arrival time."

Cons: "improve the accompaniment of the drink"

Pros: "Service and comfort great. Upgraded!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Timing of flight from Phoenix"

Pros: "Take off and landing smooth and relatively smooth in between."
Cons: "6 hour flight no food included. Came by twice for beverages. No entertainment. Probably the first time in 10 years I've been on a flight without any screens for entertainment. Goes without saying, no USB plug in."

Cons: "so late. no explanation... something about the weather bad in Boston? but that wouldn't explain every flight being late. And as usual Kayak did a better job of giving delay info than Air Canada!"

Pros: "Flight was on time and the staff and crew were courteous."

Pros: "Competent stewards/stewardesses"
Cons: "No meal?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"

Pros: "customer service"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "T"
Cons: "The waiting area at the Boston airport is poor. It is very small, rundown and with limited access to refreshments. It's ok but certainly not a selling point."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delay led us to miss our connecting flight. Air Canada then lost our luggage for 6 days on our honeymoon!"

Cons: "same as above"

Cons: "Grouchy attendants....even though I did my best to stay out of their way or interact positively, they were determined to be brusque and uncooperative. I understand they have a tough job to do, but pushing past people who are in the process of getting out of their way (even holding a baby!) is uncalled for. This happened not once, but 3 or 4 times in the course of the flight to my traveling companion and me."

Pros: "Able to get onto this earlier flight rather than waiting an additional 4 hours in the Toronto airport."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and cramped. Volume on the intercom system was extremely loud (startlingly so) and crew speak so quickly it was still difficult to catch. He actually sounded more like a Scottish auctioneer. The flight couldn't arrive soon enough."

Cons: "Limited luggage space"

Pros: "The counter assistant was very, very nice."
Cons: "It is good that the flight was very short. The seats were crammed together and the plane was very small. I felt like I was in a sardine can."

Pros: "Nothing - they don't communicate or care"
Cons: "That they didn't have staff at the gate even during boarding time & 3 hrs later showed up to tell us flight is cancelled. Lost our bags which never left the origins airport .. the list goes on & on about several rude or unprofessional manner in how they cancelled a flight with zero help before, during or after the fact."

Pros: "Flight boarded quickly, on-time and quiet flight."

Pros: "I didn't really like breakfast but I am glad we had it."
Cons: "While the plane was circling in a holding pattern our luggage was left out in the snow for over an hour. My one bag was wet when I got it and my other bag didn't arrive. And because there were no Air Canada workers at the desk in Philly no one could tell me where my bag was. It was a very stressful end to a long series of flights."

Pros: "Flight crews were great."
Cons: "Ground crews and Air Canada's booking system caused no end of trouble. Weather started the problem but human error meant an incredibly stressful rebooking, requiring three agents at ticketing plus the IT help desk just to figure out what the agent I had reached over the phone had done. In Quebec City not nearly enough agents to check bags; huge lines, people being shunted to the front so they wouldn't miss their flights."

Pros: "When I finally got to the US Customs agents they were actually quite nice. This has been my experience with US agents in Vancouver and Philadelphia as well. Yesterday they were especially cordial, while at the same time quite professional. Made me proud to be a US citizen."
Cons: "Don't know what could be done about it, but the security liine was the longest I've ever seen. I've come home from Vancouver many times before, and most times I fly direct to the USA from YVR, where things are much better. Don't think it's Tornoto's fault.....but, yesterday's experience with the security line makes it unlikely that I will come back home this way again."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled, re-scheduled 8 hours later. No notification on Air Canada was given. They mentioned that "this flight never existed" I had taken a day off of work to be there and I also had a meeting, however, my flight had been cancelled. Also, the costumer service representative mentioned that if I left th airport, they would not let me back in. They would do 2 security checks on me. After all of that! When I asked the check in lady at air Canada they mentioned that flight was not cancelled and not to look at the boards at the airport because they are incorrect! Horrible service. Horrible experience."

Pros: "The trip to Edmonton was very smooth and right on time. Everything was very good.....including the baby behind us. I will fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I didn't like the change in gate at Edmonton to Vancouver. No one told us until boarding time. Even tho there was ample time to get there since it was the next door gate, I was in a wheelchair and if it had been any further, it could've been a disaster. We arrived right on time. I'd go Air Canada again."

Pros: "The price for a round trip flight Philadelphia to Barcelona was fantastic. Unfortunately, this was a case of you getting what you pay for. Both my husband and I were very unhappy with the entire experience."
Cons: "Airplanes were very uncomfortable, flight crew was unfriendly (smiles were scarce and you felt you annoyed them if you wanted anything), service took too long (perhaps not enough personnel for number of passengers), plane was extremely warm, food was only fair -- all other international flights I've taken have had much better food and comforts). We had long layover on return flight in Toronto and airport and Air Canada personnel were not very helpful or accommodating. When we asked for a suggestion on where we could go in the airport to kill several hours (eating, drinking, watching TV), were were told by many that the airport is bad and we're given conflicting or poor answers. Intimately the advice given put us having to go thru security and Custims again (even though we already had) and that process was extremely disorganized and time consuming."

Cons: "Actually I flew from Buenos Aires to Vancouver on Air Canada. I had paid to prebook my seats both on the B.A.-Torononto leg and also Toronto to Vancouver. Did not get either of the seats I had paid and prebooked. Therefore Air Canada is taking money but not providing the service or product...... technically this is stealing"

Pros: "There were no problems. I had an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "Nothing. There were no problems. The screen did lock when I tried to look at the map."

Pros: "The crew was great, the flight was fast, the plane was very comfortable. Other than the time delay, the flight was great."
Cons: "Flight was again delayed (over 1.5 hours)."

Cons: "so much confusion at boarding time, my husband is handicapped and we were sent to wrong plane to board, staff told us to make a left when we should have made a right, there were 3 of us and the staff just laughed it off, we were not laughing"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the amount of food we got. Especially for the long flight we had. Chicken , snack and then a wrap. Very good. Please continue this."
Cons: "The seat in front didn't have the foot rest and it was really uncomfortable. Anyway to make the seat go back a bit more would be ideal , other then that the flight was great. Crew was very helpful and friendly"

Pros: "Seats were much more comfortably shaped than on my Air Can flight from Toronto to BRU. More legroom! Food for BRU to Montreal was decent."
Cons: "No snacks for Montreal to SF. Pretty brutal for people who didn't buy a dinner in the terminal. If you're only going to sell meals on the Montreal-SF flight, make them a little less expensive. Otherwise, people will just eat nothing and dislike their Air Can experience..."

Pros: "Breakfast and lunch filling and tasty with good options. Attendants came around often."
Cons: "Multiple glitches in flight- Some entertainment systems did not work, so the pilot had to do a reboot of whole system for 20 minutes. One overhead compartment would not close, had to divert bags somewhere else. Planes need a major upgrade to entertainment equipment. view screens are 20 years old, the touch screens don't work on the first try because its such old underpowered tech. Safety demonstration props missing."

Pros: "Much better than the Air Canada flight from Europe. There was a good selection of movies and easy to use. For a short flight, they packed food, drink and a movie. Family enjoyed this flight."

Cons: "Our connection in Toronto was toooooooo short for seniors 70 years old."

Pros: "I loved the trip back to Philadelphia. Somehow the crew upgraded my trip, and the crews are super nice. Love it!"

Pros: "friendly staff, quick flight, comfortable seats"

Pros: "Movie selection Crew was kind"
Cons: "Check in was over 45 min Space between seats: I'm 6" 3" and leg space was a problem Food was mediocre"

Cons: "Original flite cancelled!!"

Pros: "Seats were okay, crew was friendly."
Cons: "They served us one of the least appealing snacks I have ever received on an airplane 9which is obviously saying a lot)-it was some gooey hot pocket chicken creation. No provided entertainment (you can use your own or rent ipads)."

Cons: "I didn't like that there were no screens to watch and I didn't know I needed the app on my phone to watch movies until I was already in e plane and too late download it."

Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 2 hours, seats very tight"

Pros: "It was nice of airline to set up an extra flight in the afternoon so we didn't need to spend even more time in Toronto airport."

Pros: "Crew very polite and professional."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive at destination, so this caused a bit of a problem for me as Philadelphia was not my final destination. I had to take a bus the next morning at 7AM to Pittsburgh. My luggage finally was delivered to me within 48 hours, so that was great."

Pros: "Crew was nice and very helpful.. Nice selection of movies.."
Cons: "Food could be improved.. no flavor and it looked over cooked.. Drinking cups could be switched to paper cups.. or recycled one's.. Packaging and overall rubbish could also be reduced. 777 seats were to narrow.. bigger seats are a must for such long flights. Internet access could be free.. with a limit of course.."

Pros: "The flight itself was good. Nice and smooth with no issues"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. They had 2 different flights leaving out of the same gate at almost the same time. There were some People who were confused."

Pros: "Again, great crew."
Cons: "Boarding was misdirected and confusing, as Gate designation kept changing and airport staff was not very helpful."

Pros: "There is nothing I liked about air Canada"
Cons: "Everything sucks"

Pros: "The food area at the gates very good and tech friendly, comfortable."
Cons: "Gate information changed frequently, plane was late, which was actually good, since it took so long to transfer from my plane from Mex City to Toronto. Gate attendant was unfriendly, seemed harried."
