Pros: "Awesome crew"
Cons: "Old seating"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Chair isn’t comfortable."
Cons: "You could have given me a refund or credit for a flight I told you 3 months ago I had to change. I won’t use kayak again."
Cons: "Old Aircraft Interior, could be more comfortable"
Pros: "I had 3 seats to myself, and I was able to curl up and get a good 2 hours sleep without being disturbed. Thank you ANA. Crew was lovely and friendly."
Cons: "Well they could have given me a free upgrade but I can live with a row to myself, kidding. When the ticket counter opens the agents stand in front of the podiums and bow and say a greeting (I think it was in Japanese). They need to get their timing better. So not much."
Cons: "Lousy food taste bland out of date movies"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and the food was very nice."
Cons: "It really would have been nice to have a vegetarian option!"
Pros: "Crews are very helpful and always have a smile in their face. Comfortable seats and entertainment system are very nice. The only thing that makes us not satisfied was the food, for 10 hours flight there’s only 1 main dish...Totally I like their service."
Cons: "The food was not enough, we felt so hungry before arriving."
Cons: "Seats are way too small, incredibly uncomfortable to the point of painful ness. More luggage space"
Pros: "Service was impeccable, as usual, from check-in to boarding. Crew was attentive and friendly."
Pros: "- Friendly staff. - Excellent service and boarding easiness. - Kayak's excellent price."

Cons: "No tv/ intertainment on the plane"
Pros: "Economy premium was very comfortable. Best service I’ve had on an airplane since Pan American days."
Cons: "I didn’t like the boarding process one long line. However, it moved quickly and unlike American airlines there was plenty of overhead space. They let you check 2 bags free. Of course, it is an international flight."
Pros: "Packed in like sardines with no ability to recline for a red eye flight of 10h was excruciating. Food was not good on this flight though the kids meal was a nice touch."
Cons: "Seats, food"
Pros: "There was a air hostess I wish I knew her name I was seated at the very back she really took care of me she thought I was sick she kept asking me am I ok Flyer NH 175 LAX / Nairta because I did not eat at all the food was good don't get me wrong all Airlines should have people like her"
Cons: "My flight arriving Narita was lat but I was taking care everything was a range excellent again"
Pros: "The seats in business class are excellent. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. I'd fly ANA again especially on the 787."
Cons: "The entertainment is pretty limited , and the food selection is limited for western food."
Pros: "Attentive, very prompt when I indicated that there was condensation drip from the cabin roof. Vegan/vegetarian food was well prepared and staff were very knowledgeable with food choices and options."
Cons: "See subject line"
Pros: "ANA is one of our favorite airlines. Consistently great service, if not occasionally a little too 'rule centric'... but it's Japan, and that's why it's so nice and clean and everything works perfectly... :)"
Pros: "short flight ready to get home"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Wonderful service"
Cons: "Food was on the very bland side"
Pros: "The crew has always been so polite, they seem like they are actually having a good time :) The planes have always been clean, and I've never seen a fellow passenger complaining."
Cons: "While I've always had plenty to eat, I'm not always familiar with some offerings...but that's on me."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good experience. Crew are kind and friendly!"
Pros: "Excellent plane, accessories. Friendly staff as you expect from ANA. Very comfortable trip."
Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "Was put on "Standby", even though I was traveling with my teenage daughter, and I arrived more than 2 hours before departure! I ended up getting a seat, but this was unnecessary stressful (there were some seats left in business, so they knew I was going to get a seat eventually. They could have told me I was going to be able to go at check-in)."
Pros: "Messed everything up!!!"
Cons: "Messed everything up!!!"
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Most all."
Cons: "Old business class configuration. Today, expectations are for lie-flat chairs, especially for longer flights leaving at very early hours."
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane."
Pros: "Best service ever provided by an airline"
Pros: "Crew services"
Cons: "Seat space, window side, especially foot area no space for my bag and legs"
Pros: "Entertainment system, comfort of the seats, staff, food, basically everything!"
Cons: "It said that the plane was capable of WiFi, but the flight didn't have it, probably just because the route is too short."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive service, good movie selection on new screens."
Cons: "TSA-style pat-down at the gate in Narita before allowed to board."
Pros: "I liked my aisle seat. The plane was clean. Crew professional. Temperature comfortable. Pillow, blankets, and headphones given."
Cons: "No instructions on how to use the remote for the television."
Cons: "I understand it was only an hour flight but I would've appreciated a snack of some sort"
Cons: "i asked a crew for a drink.. and they refused."
Pros: "Comfortable flight and cabin crew were very good"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The captain failed to update the passengers and crew of significant change in flight path and delay. The flight flew off course for almost 30 minutes, while the flight attendants required everyone to remain seated due to supposed turbulence. We felt no turbulence for almost 25 mins. No update was given to passengers while we flew far off course. I motioned to the flight attendant, who was seated due to turbulence warning, to ask why we were off-course, but she could not get up. Many passengers were pointing to the flight path animation, to point out that we were flying straight north, instead of southeast. The flight attendant then called the captain for an update, and then the captain finally made an announcement about weather delays around shanghai."
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service"
Pros: "Amazing Crew, Entertainment and Comfort."
Cons: "Hot meals served in First Class as opposed to just snacks."
Cons: "Everything was great! Would love to be a loyal Delta passenger. I wish the prices were more competitive. Willing to pay more for the quality of experience but Delta always seems sky high!"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."
Pros: "The crew really was amazing. Friendly. Communicative."
Cons: "Great flight all around."
Cons: "People wiping down their seats during the flight .... how silly"
Pros: "Nassau security line was quick. US Customs line was quick."
Cons: "The Delta line to drop my bags was long and unorganized. The ticket agents were moving in slow motion. I waited over an hour to drop my bag. I thought I was going to miss my flight."
Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Cons: "No mechanical failures or delays would be nice"
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Cons: "WiFi"
Cons: "The food not so much breadddd"
Pros: "For a puddle jumper jet it was amazingly comfortable. Even had enough room to put both feet and a carry on bag under the seat. And the seats were more comfortable relative to the competition (eg. United and US Air)."
Cons: "Seats can always be more roomy but that is a problem with all puddle jumper jets."
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very small plane"
Pros: "Had a great experience with Delta all around. Seating and crew were lovely, in flight entertainment was great. Overall, very pleasant experience and flight was on time."
Pros: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Cons: "Food and the 757 lay out"
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Pros: "The professionalism of staff"
Cons: "There was a LOT of turbulence and the landing was a rough one too. Plane was cramped with very little leg room and my seat back was broken."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t very friendly"
Pros: "Timely, organized, polite staff and pilots. Delta gets 5 stars all around."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working but we were informed so not really a negative just an observation."
Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."
Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Cons: "My mother spent the entire day in the airport while they rescheduled the flight 4 times. Delta still hasn't contacted me or sent me the voucher that was promised."
Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"
Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. The Airbus plane has enough legroom for tall persons."
Pros: "Great service, very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was OK."
Pros: "Inflight free texting everywhere that wasn't China, decent food, funny crew (I liked the mix of American and Chinese)"
Pros: "all flights were right on time. service was excellent. crew was very friendly. Comfort+ seating was excellent very comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Distaff who is very friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "NothIng"
Cons: "Horrible customer service coming and going. Horrible service on the plane and mostly, some of the rudest people I have ever had to deal with. Delta should take lessons from SWA. By the way, this isn't the only bad experience I've had. Flown Delta 4 times over last six months and almost the same."
Pros: "Crew was informative. The food was above expectations."
Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."
Cons: "No blankets or pillows. Froze"
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class since my flight was overbooked and I had to miss my original flight"
Cons: "Security for traveling to US is a very time consuming with long lines and in my mind useless process which does not make me feel any more secure - just wasting time and resources."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient. Food was hot and red wine excellent."
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
Cons: "Delta cancelled the flight after midnight on Friday morning, and never rebooked me. I still haven't heard from them. In not even sure why I'm getting alerts about baggage claim."
Pros: "Nice crew, normal seats, TV etc. They were very apologetic about the delays. They gave multiple updates and came around with water/snacks"
Cons: "The plane was delayed to wait for passengers from another flight. We waited for almost two hours. After that there was multiple technical difficulties- loading the bags, closing the door, refueling...the list goes on. We ended up taking off almost four hours late."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was very good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "kLM staff was great."
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Pros: "quick and relaxed"
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Wonderful"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"

Our flight was delayed due to mechanical issues. Would have been nice to have been compensated for our time or at least had some kind of perk. On a smaller note, the crew only came through the flight once with food and drinks when it was advertised that they would come through twice. Overall, felt like we had to deal with their problems.

Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"
Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."
Pros: "The staff was kind and courteous. Food was ok and they gave us snacks"
Cons: "The seats on the air rouge plane’s were tiny. I’m 5’2 and I was ok because my seat-mate was also small, but if you’re tall or wide, these flights will be uncomfortable. Note: this was an international flight(8hrs). Small seats and no in-flight movie. There was a flight delay due to weather (40 mins) on the way home. I get it. On the way to our destination there was a 4 hour delay due to a problem at the airport. Though frustrating, probably not air canada’s Fault."
Pros: "LITERALLY NOTHING Trashiest airline in the world"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Pros: "The food and service were very good."
Cons: "The entertainment system is a bit outdated and had to be rebooted more than once. But this was only a minor inconvenience."
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."
Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"
Pros: "Nice crew and service, I ate all the food :) lots of new movies !"
Cons: "I guess it is a good thing for the airline because the plane was full, although it was crowded to me."
Pros: "The crew did an amazing job routing us around the heavy bumps along the whole route (weather system). Short flight, so no food. Entertainment system is good, but too many ads."
Cons: "The "mandatory" ads that run over the loudspeaker right after the safety announcement. Can't turn them off or lower the volume because they are transmitted for the whole cabin. While the entertainment system is very good, the general overabundance of ads is disheartening."
Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Entertainment system available at each seat."
Cons: "Tight seat space."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."
Pros: "Good normal flight."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."
Pros: "At least there were individual tv's. The choice of movies was horrendous."
Cons: "Where to start. The first flight was canceled because the morning crew never showed up. The second flight was delayed 4 hours. The food was atrocious, there was no room and the seats were godawful. The flight attendants were nice but the gate agents were no help at all and terribly rude."
Cons: "1. Too cold 2. Patron behind me was tall and his knees repeatedly pushed into my back through a paper thin seat back 3. Waited 45 minutes on tarmac AFTER landing to deplane"
Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
Pros: "I liked my seatmates on the flights."
Cons: "I didn't like that we only get one drink and no snacks."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and accommodating."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours at Narita and then again in Toronto for another 2 hours. Plus my family and I were tired from the 11 1/2 hour flight and when we get to check in the attendants were very rude, almost like it was a bother to them when we asked for help, it was probably because I interrupted their conversation. Every airports kiosks are different and that was our first time going through there so we just wanted to make sure that we did it right. Then when we get to the gate where we're suppose to leave out from, I asl the attendant there who I can talk to about forgotten bag on board. She then goes to tell me that I need to call the 800 #, Abd I said but I'm here at the airport can't they just bring it to this gate and she then got an attitude and said that they couldn't do that and I would just have to go to the lost and found which was downstairs. I was on the line with lost and found before I went to ask her any questions, and I mentioned to her that I had been on hold for 30 minutes, and she said they weren't going to answer. So I then asked hire am I suppose to get my bag then? She repeated about calling the 800 #, and at this time a lady runs up the counter thinking that she missed her flight. She shows the attendant her phone and is hysterical thinking that she missed her flight and the flight attendant told her just go sit down it's not here yet you didn't miss it. The customer then starts yelling in another language and the flight attendant just tells your just go sit down calm down and go sit down. She's doing all of this while I'm standing there she pulls out her phone and then told her co-worker I should put her on YouTube the way they do us. All the while I'm standing there because I still have more questions and she just ignored me like I wasn't even standing there. I more than likely will never fly this airline again, I'm paying for their services and to get treated like this, no thanks!!"
Pros: "Plane was the new Air Canada 787, so it was excellent. Comfortable business seats. Nice sleep"
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "No delay. The plane came half an hour early which is ok. There was no complimentary food but drinks were offered. It would have been nice if peanuts/cookies/chips were offered. There was no entertainment so the rating was 1star. Emails were sent to inform us of changes in schedule and also to check in on line. Leg room is good as we can stretch our legs (I guess you can say that we are not that tall) we wish to travel again with Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "We never got on this flight because we were delayed due to an emergency landing. Couldn't get anyone to help us get home sooner than 24 after when we were originally scheduled to be home in Nashville."
Pros: "The lady at the counter was very pleasant when she realized my dad had forgotten his wallet and offered him to put him on next flight if I didn't make it back in time with his wallet, I liked how she had made him feel better by showing him grace and mercy that his mistake was fixable."
Cons: "At SFO it is always a mess when you take a flight because you can either be in International terminal - that would be logical, since this is a us Canada flight but at other times you need to go to the united ticket counter instead (even though I get sent between the counters often I can't remember if this is terminal 3) - The lady in line was trying to get my dad to leave this line to go to the other counter line without asking about his specific flight, it caused an argument in my travel party because they thought she was right and I insisted we stay in this line. The lady didn't even acknowledge what I was trying to say and kept telling my dad to go to the other terminal when we were at the correct one. There is nobody that can seem to tell you which terminal to go to prior to arriving at the airport so it doesn't help when someone provides misinformation at the airport while in line. Travel can already Be stressful."
Pros: "we sat on the airplane for over 3 hrs , waiting for someone to clean the waste water from the plane.! it was very alarming the lack of service , never seen anything like that before !"
Pros: "Not really stands out as a positive."
Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."
Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Wish the longer portion of our flight was as pleasant as the short leg to Toronto."
Pros: "the mounties rock, seriously"
Pros: "Smooth flight,and all the rest was okay."
Cons: "My seat was damaged and it was hard on my neck,unable to rest it as the top part was jutting out."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
Pros: "Food was reasonably good, and seat had enough legroom, more than in some airlines I have flown recently."
Cons: "very disorganized. website for checkin was indecipherable. I had to call Air Canada, which charged me for the call (15 centimes per minute) then put me on hold, only to finally learn that I could only check in in person because we were traveling with a pet. --- We paid extra for preferential seating, and when we got to the counter were told that we could not have those seats bcs we were traveling with a pet - the pet was acknowledged on our records and travel documents, yet the company allowed us to sign up for preferential seating, then would not let us access those seats, but our previously reserved window seats were gone and we were assigned aisle and center seats, which were then changed again to other aisle and center seats. --- Half the flights on the departure board, including ours, were delayed, alhto there were no weather problems. Both our plane and the plane in the gate next to where we were waiting had mechanical problems - a coincidence, or a repeated failing?"
Pros: "The flight is packed, but overall is not bad. The crew is kinda keep everything casual."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
Cons: "Zero communication on status of flight! Just changed the time on flight multiple times but no updates given! Canceled flight 10 hours later! Had to make own hotel reservation in Toronto with only possible reimbursement."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and friendly,"
Cons: "They changed our gate 3 times, and delayed our flight an hour and a half. It was extremely irritating and time consuming."
Pros: "It was a short flight but smooth and on time."
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Pros: "Crew was nice but customer service at the airport and over the phone is terrible (takes over 30 min to speak with someone and a few times they hang up the phone)"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed for over 36 hours and customer service hotline was useless."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"
Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"
Pros: "Glad for this new route. Will make Europe easier to access from PDX."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and could recline more than other planes. Had entertainment in the headrests."
Pros: "Toronto->Shanghai Good In general it was a good flight considering how long (14 hours) it was. The new entertainment system has a lot of features and movies. It also has chat to other passengers which is useful when travelling with a group sitting in different areas."
Cons: "Bad Long flight but that is the way it is. The fight map froze on my entertainment system about 1/2 through the flight so the map was useless after that. One side of my earphones also went dead. My wife wanted something better then hot noodles in a cup for the middle meal."
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."
Pros: "They changed my seat twice to accommodate mother's with children. Lost my window seat. Told me no more room for carry on bag. Was my only bag cause doesn't want to go to baggage claim. Cost me extra 45 mins claiming my bag."
Cons: "Not take away my carry on bag at gate (was not a size problem), don't change people's seats."
Pros: "Crew is always great with United."
Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."
Pros: "Ease of finding gate"
Cons: "There were several cases of couple who purchased tickets together were separated on the plane & no one knew why they were arranged that way. No solution offered at counter."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late flight No room for bags for Group 2 in bulkhead row"
Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight"
Pros: "Eventually got to Chicago"
Cons: "Missed my connection"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The staff was courteous and efficient. The entertainment selections were diverse. The seating was adequate for a long haul flight."
Cons: "The check-in process took 50 minutes at the counter as the staff told me that I needed a visa for China (transit) while that info was incorrect. I had to deal with online customer service while the person at the counter couldn’t help. It finally took 3 people at the counter to send me away. Once on the plane for a 14+ hour flight, I couldn’t use the bathrooms freely as they were filthy. The staff obviously didn’t maintain the bathrooms during the entire flight. The food served made me wish that I had bought take-out food for 3-meals prior to my boarding. the quantity of food was inadequate for the long flight as well. 1 extra snack would have been appreciated. I will likely book my future trans-Pacific flights with another airline."
Pros: "crew was apologetic"
Cons: "no movie service, no wifi. this is the 3rd time this has happened to me on an international flight to China on United. so bad. every other airline has it all together"

Cons: "Entertainment system Completely broken for full duration of flight. Individual screen also broken as well as seat Broken 19C"
Pros: "- Crew was attentive."

Pros: "Can keep electronic devices on in flight mode. Had power outlets, very nice!"
Cons: "Boading horrible mess. A second flight was boarding using same audio system. And no elite flyer pre boading in SFO"
Pros: "I was moved up from Row 25 to row 9"
Cons: "Price to watch a movie was 7.99"
Pros: "On time arrival in China. Good entertainment options for my iPad, better than seat back display"
Cons: "The usual lack of attentiveness by United Flight crew"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They are never on time, we had to stay in Chicago and miss two days of vacation because there was no flight crew. It seems they can never get their act together, and it never changes."

Cons: "Delayed take off, cramped seating, predatory fees, ...what else could go wrong?"
Pros: "Comfortable , quick. For us it was great not to have to stop at another hub and walk all over to another gate and plane."
Cons: "United promises 1 free bag per passenger if booking w a united points credit card. Well I've never had this problem b4 but would not proceed thru check in w/o paying $25 per each of us. That was using kiosk and a real live person. That really frosts my - well, u know. Now I have to fight online, not even w a real person who would understand , to get $ back. I hope!"
Pros: "I would give a 1 star ! Cancelled flight and by the time we reached home it was 2.30 in the morning ! Which is unacceptable ."
Pros: "not much. only bless the gate agents for being able to rebook the plethora of travelers like me who get stranded."
Cons: "United Airlines constantly overbooks so you either don't get on, or you make the connecting flight. On my recent trip, I had to be rebooked on both flights to my destination, and both flights home. They really suck."
Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."

Cons: "That i got stuck in China for 2 days"
Cons: "i booked my flight on Kayak and immediately been cancelled dunno why"
Cons: "The seats are tiny. If you drio something, you can't reach down to pick it up. The food was burnt. The app isn't downloadable in China. The overall experience makes me not want to ever fly United again."
Pros: "The flights were on time and without incident."
Cons: "I did not get an email to check in, what is up with that! I bought a 14" roller bag to fit under any seat. However it does not fit under all of your aisle seats. Can you indicate seats with less space on your maps. I bought the bag so I wouldn't have to lift it up. Leg space is better on Delta and under seat room also."
Pros: "I loved how helpful and kind the staff was. I had never used a kiosk to check my bag before and they helped me when I was lost."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable when sitting for long periods and the seatbelts could have been a little bigger."
Pros: "Crew was nice and boarding went smooth"
Cons: "seats were very close together"
Pros: "Got there on time with bags"
Cons: "Headline AND noone knew or was clear on whether i needed to transfer bag myself to Juneyao airline in Shanghai. Was told by 800 number no but turned out yes. Friend thought yes and arrived in Chaing Mai and bag still in China!"
Pros: "A very typical flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"
Pros: "Crew was very good, plane was clean."
Cons: "Although we all know we have less seating room with narrow seats and barely enough room to get in and out of seats, this particular plane has taken this to an extreme."
Cons: "..there was a very drunk passenger on the flight. He spilled wine all over another customer. The flight crew kept serving him more alcohol even though he could barely stand with out falling down. Unfortunately, he would shut up the whole trip, speaking in a very loud voice to his seat mate who was clearly not interested in the conversation."
Cons: "We paid 160$ to upgrade both of our seats to economy plus for more leg room. Unfortunately, when we got to our seats, we realized our seats could not recline because they were in front of the exit row, which is understandable but we wished it would have warned us of that obstacle when we picked out the seats. I am also 5 months pregnant and so we felt that we paid more for what turned out to be a less comfortable flight."
Pros: "No delays. Comfortable flight."
Pros: "Free movie on flight to Denver was nice.... Free movies and internet was nice because I didn't have to dig around for a credit card and you pay enough for tickets anyway, that it SHOULD be free. Its there for one person, EVERYONE should be able to use it. So it was a nice perk to kill time! Boarding was awesome, but only because I have a handicap"
Cons: "I just don't like my soda poured from a can into a tiny cup....Just give me a cold can of soda for the 3 hours....geez."
