The flight from Rome to Ams was delayed. The flight from AMS to Moscow was missed. - We spent 2h in a linewaiting for the service desk to rebook the tickets - Then, we spend more than an hour to get the hotel - Then waiting for the shuttle another 30 minutes Unexpectedly poor and slow service. The next working day is ruined with the flight in the middle
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
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: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."
Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Only 1 drinks round on a 3h flight."
Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Pros: "Not time departure and cabin crew were effective and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Services were appropriate for the time of departure and length of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Pros: "One flight attendant who was on a plane not scheduled for this flight (much smaller plane than scheduled) so lots of people left behind. Don't know her name but she had the best personality and really took care of a lot of people not happy being late of stuffed into a very small plane."
Cons: "Delays happen but DCA is a pretty big hub not to have a big enough plane to get passengers on board who are already delays. You had to pay $700 vouchers to a whole bunch of folks so whatever profit was possible went to vouchers instead."
Pros: "Yes, crew were great"
Cons: "Checkin was seamless. flight comfortable and pleasant. Unfortunately not much can be done about the worst part, which was total immigration disorganization on arrival at JFK. Coming from Rome which is a huge airport, it was shameful to see the difference. Sigh."
Pros: "I’m home"
Cons: "Ran almost an hour late with. I explanation of why. No seat power - first class had mediocre seats. No foot rests and not very comfortable"
Pros: "Service/entertainment on the plane was great."
Cons: "We were unable to check in the night before due to website issues and made it so we didn't have seats assigned until everyone else was boarded onto the plane and because of that I couldn't sit next to my girlfriend."
Pros: "Lots of food and drink on plane."
Cons: "Philadelphia airport is horrible, rude staff, they lost our luggage and many other international flight luggage. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "I guess some of the senior crew that now do international flights don’t care much about their attitude. Some were very pleasant others looked like they were not happy to be there."
Cons: "Stewardess’s not stewards could at least act like their enjoying their job."
Pros: "Friendly crew, meals/snacks/beverage service all excellent, and great movie selection! Return flight slightly delayed but we got notifications in advance. Would highly recommend the DFW to Rome nonstop flight."
Cons: "The seats in economy are comfortable but way too close together, even for a small adult needing minimal leg room."
Pros: "Crew really helpful and efficient super fast boarding"
Pros: "Crew is helpful, seats comfortable, flight and baggage on time. Food was good for the airline."
Cons: "International connection experience is awful. I understand that AmericanAirlines is not responsible but no help or explanation was provided either."
Pros: "The crew was top notch, very pleasant and went the extra mile."
Cons: "My husband and I were assigned seats in a different part of the plane from one another."
Pros: "Pilot did well on rainy flight"
Cons: "Only pretzels for snack"
Pros: "Couple of flight attendants were really nice!"
Cons: "Most of flight attendants were rude. No personal touch at all. Felt like they wanna rush and be done with flight asap. Entertainment selection is really poor for 9 hours flight. Expect more new movies and American tv shows. Concerts up to the date would be nice."
Pros: "Crew was okay."
Cons: "It was uncomfortable from arriving at FCO for check in to landing at DFW."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The tv at key seat did not work at all initially. Crew tried to re- boot it but it still didn’t work properly Flight attendant in our area was brusque and rude. And none of the others said a word to us"
Pros: "With almost airlines charging much more while delivering much less, it was a pleasure to take this flight and actually be treated like a consumer who paid a lot of money to fly. They fed us, gave us drinks, and were generally very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "No complaints, other than I wish I could afford first or business class!"
Pros: "much improved food quality and entertainment quality then previous international flights on AA."
Pros: "When I saw that our BA flight would be operated by AA, I was concerned, given previous poor experiences with American airlines. However, in this case, AA was pretty good, especially the check-in staff at Rome Airport who were excellent. The check-in, boarding and de-boarding processes all went well. Plane was relatively modern, with USB charging ports for phones. Movie selection was good, though the TV selection could be expanded. The food was ok. Seating not bad. All of our luggage, including a child's carseat, was delivered on time and intact. Pleasantly surprised."
Pros: "The plane was far more comfortable than the one we flew on from Boston to Rome."
Pros: "friendly crew, good leg room, on time dperature and arrival. entertainment"
Cons: "one of the food items (beef sandwich) has alcohol in it but I was't told so I ordered from my child then discovered it after reading the label."
Cons: "The touch screen for the video monitors need to be replaced. It was very difficult to select a movie."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really attentive and came to our rescue. In flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Americans airlines charged me extra to guarantee that my wife and I, along with our infant daughter could sit together. Of course with this came the expectation that we would at least have more leg space. Which we did not. Go figure."
Pros: "That we made jt"
Cons: "Flight crew was rude said things weren’t their job such as handing out custom forms just overall a terrible flight."
Pros: "Leg room. Crew. Nice airplane. Even captain greeting passengers."
Pros: "The meal was passable but the space to eat it made it very difficult."
Cons: "I dropped my Kindle and earbuds on the floor and there was so little room I was unable to pick them up! Anything I had on the floor could not be accessed because of the tiny amount of space. I would have to ask the passenger next to me to get up if I wanted to get my things."
Pros: "Food service was good."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The airplane was very old and I couldn't hear or see the "entertainment"."
Pros: "It’s the industry practice that the service level for 6 hours long flight is by the ‘domestic’ but it’s shaemful. No food or video screen !!!"
Pros: "I wish I had caught his name, but our flight attendant was extremely kind and provided great service. Even came through the cabin prior to landing to thank everyone."
Pros: "Crew fantastic , food good"
Cons: "Limited seat space"
Cons: "I was not sent an email 24 hours prior to my flight to check in."
Pros: "Seats were more spacious and a representative was great about helping us find seats close together for a party of 4 that had originally been split up."
Cons: "No sort of real line before boarding. Other customers were getting in who had numbers that were not yet called. Staff at the inside gatealso gave very short answers."
Pros: "Only about 20 people on board did not have follow up connection flights. My flight going to Rome was also delayed by a half an hour. TBH I don't recall being on a AA flight that ever left on schedule."
Pros: "The flight was calm and clean. Not much turbulence. The flight staff was polite and there was plenty of room."
Cons: "The food was horrible and the seats were a little uncomfortable but everything else was pretty good"
Cons: "Flight delayed and the costumer service was very bad in terms of providing information to the costumers, I have called and there was no proper line to reach them at, I got my information from British Airways, as they were operating the flight."
Pros: "Plenty of food and drink on the flight. Having your own choice of movies and TVs to watch helped pass the time."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating attendants"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" and the seats were extremely uncomfortable for a 10 hour flight. No vegan options"
Pros: "Large selection of movies/TV to keep your mind busy, food is great and plenty of it (liked the additional ice cream and free beer at meals)"
Cons: "I tried to tell the attendant my screen wasn't working but she cut me off and said "it's loading" (it had been loading for 30 min while everyone else's screen was working, but she was gone before I could mention that). I watched my wife's screen for a whole movie and then re-asked a different attendant if they would mind restarting my screen. He did, and it loaded."
Pros: "we have a very old plane from rome to chicago no entertainent"
Cons: "it was a 10 hours fly in a old plane without any charger for computers and tablets,no individual tvs"
Pros: "The flight crew were great, attentive and accommodating. There were empty seats which allowed for movement of passengers and some stretching out during the long flight."
Cons: "The only issue was one restroom not functioning, which caused a line to queue throughout the flight for the working restroom. Otherwise no complaints."
Pros: "More leg room than expected, food was airline food, but not that bad considering. Plenty of beverages, great selection of movies. Hour delay leaving, but arrived only half an hour late."
Cons: "We paid extra for 'exit row' seats and were sat in sets that had maybe even less room than a standard row! I was extremely disappointed, and even the flight attendant said he had flagged this with his management and they continue to sell those seats as exit row and charge a premium. Very poor business practice on BA's end and will absolutely avoid flying with them in the future."
Pros: "When the arrival time of the connecting flight was changed, we chose another set of flights."
Pros: "Starting with seat selection with an agent, every step of the trip was handled with efficiency and professionalism. The cabin crew saw to my needs and was watchful of each passenger. Communication was provided as needed, food, drink, snacks as well as comfort dispensed smoothly."
Cons: "The delay with our flight leaving Rome was tied to a delay at JFK the evening before, so although there was nothing to be done at the Rome end, it was inconvenient. Also, because we needed to make a connection in New York, this set the stage for delays on the last leg of our journey"
Pros: "Stewards were patient and attentive."
Pros: "One of the crew members, Walt, was amazing."
Cons: "Everything else was a NIGHTMARE. We bought our tickets in Nov. I paid for an upgrade and assigned seats in FEBRUARY. We flew May 13. Not only did they RESELL and REASSIGN our seats to someone else -- we could not get a refund for the upgrade we paid for. To add insult to injury, the only seats they could give us were in the back of the plane next to the toilet. Having heard so many similar nightmare stories about American Air I can say I will never ever fly American Air again. We now have to spend our firrst few days home from vacation disputing that charge, writing letters and making calls to get that damn refund. I will be sharing my discontent far and wide. Whoever at corporate thinks it's best practice to sell and sell and sell seats and live with the aggravation of the customers has an upside down notion of how to run a successful business. NIGHTMARE."
Pros: "There was a lot of extra room on the flight so it was comfortable. The meals were tasty. I was glad they gave us a few snacks in addition to the main meal and the dinner snack with the tart and the sponge taper very good."
Cons: "The monitors were very difficult to use. I had to press them multiple times to change the screen"
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"
Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "flight personal were very nice"
Cons: "Seat broken reading light did not work 15 total hours in the air and 7 of them the movie system did not work Paid for upgraded seat and did not get one - got moved to a standard seat."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The flight could have been on time."
Pros: "The crew was good. The comfort level of the seats were awful. People throw their luggage in the overhead compartment to fit theirs and nobody else. I had to put my backpack in front of me and had absolutely no leg room. The seats were smaller than usual."
Cons: "Serve some pretzels at least."
Pros: "It was comfortable..the food was plentiful, but the chicken wraps were like eating cardboard...ice cream a delight."
Cons: "The chicken wraps were almost unedible..."
Pros: "Impeccable service and comfortable flight with no delays!!!!"
Pros: "airline hostess were friendly and positive"
Cons: "food - seats tight"
Pros: "The movie collection is pretty decent. The food is decent and they provided snacks, etc as well. The stars is nice and I saw them helping out the parents who flied with small toddlers."
Cons: "There was 40 mins delayed because there is Toronto flight canceled and they tried to reroute those people to our flight. But a lot of these people have connection flights and we have to run through the long connections platform to get to the other side as well as go through the customs because it's the point of entry back from Rome."
Pros: "I got an aisle seat"
Cons: "Unable to use washroom as both units on our aisle were disabled. When crossing the walkway to get to the washroom on the other side, one customer sitting on that row said we cannot pass. She even stretched out her leg to touch the wall in front in order to block passages. She must also be upset as a result of the disabled washrooms. Food was really sub standard. Breakfast was a so called chicken sandwich that looks like a cherry pie from McDonald. I got water spilled over me when water was poured for my neighbor customer. My jacket, pants and even right sock were all wet Crew did not apologize even when I asked for napkins to help dry my clothes. Very unprofessional. He should have used a tray to hold the cup when he"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, decent movies and food"
Cons: "Customer Service was horrible"
Cons: "Terrible in Rome, poor organization."
Cons: "tight seats, charge for food"
Pros: "Leg room was good"
Cons: "Video screen"
Pros: "The ice cream and the one woman in customer service that actually seemed to care."
Cons: "My husband and I were flying to Italy, on the first leg of our flight neither of our screens worked so we had six hours with no entertainment. They gave us a card to make it up to us but (wisely) don't tell you what it is for. It turned out to be for 10% off your next flight if you book it through their website within a year. Useless. On our return flight we were delayed on the tarmac for over an hour with no air conditioning, they originally said they were waiting for a signature but then said that there was something wrong with the engines that help us take off, then the cabin filled with a fuel smell, then they said they had brought the wrong item for the repair and we were waiting for the correct one. When we finally took off my husband's screen didn't work yet again and this was a 9 hour flight. The flight attendant said that some of the screens hadn't worked for a while ( probably cheaper to hand out useless discounts than to fix them.). We received another 10% off card, which we cannot combine or transfer, again useless. We missed our connection because of the delay, they booked us on another flight but because they didn't tell us that we had to pick up our luggage or where (it was on a different carousel than the rest of the luggage from our flight) and that we had to go through customs we (and many others) missed that flight too. We finally got a flight out the next morning and they put us up at a hotel. We both had to miss another day of work and it was quite an ordeal. My husband's screen worked for almost all of that last flight before it seized up. We didn't bother to report it that time since another 10% off coupon wasn't going to do us any good. Overall it is concerning that Air Canada doesn't seem to be maintaining their planes in optimal condition and that their idea of compensation involves them making even more money from me. Never again."
Cons: "When boarding the plane in Rome, there was not rhyme or reason. Seats towards the back should have been urged to use the back stairs. Two way traffic down the aisle of a plane does not work with suitcases, backpacks, etc, in tow."
Pros: "The cabin attendants did a fine job and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the in flight entertainment system. Some of the monitors did not work for some passengers and the crew had to reset the system several times which disrupted all passengers."
Pros: "- On time performance - Friendly crew - Comfortable flights"
Cons: "- Lengthy check-in. We waited one hour in line to check-in. - Flight had no access to a gate. Boarding done through tarmac and buses."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good entertainment (TV, movies, etc). Good, plentiful food and drink."
Pros: "Good legroom in economy"
Pros: "Going through customs and immigration in Canada before returning to the US is very convenient and saves time after you land."
Pros: "the crew were very friendly and helpful. the onboard entertainment was great. The food was good."
Cons: "getting from the gate to the plane in Rome was a nightmare! the bus that took us to the aircraft was stuffed full, hot, and slow. this may be an airport issue and not airline specific, but it reflected poorly on both."
Pros: "No real positives"
Cons: "Bag check a mess, late departure, so, so food and service."
Pros: "Food is okay. No delay on time flight I enjoyed it"
Cons: "So far nothing flight attendants are very nice"
Pros: "I appreciated the varied entertainment options available for such a long flight."
Cons: "The cabin was absolutely freezing! Everyone in the area I was seated was complaining, wearing coats and blankets and still very uncomfortable. The crew was surly and not at all helpful. The flight was very, very late, which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Toronto. If that were an isolated incident, I would be able to look past it, but every leg of the trip I took was late. The boarding process in Rome was so completely unorganized, it was like being in a giant herd pressed against one another and nobody could move to allow the boarding to proceed as called. It was complete chaos from the earliest part of the trip to the very end."
Pros: "- At Rome FCO, one of the Air Canada representatives pulled out of the line to get us into the business class check-in line since we had 2 kids - we totally loved this focus on families and respect the attention to detail! - The flight from FCO to YYZ was awesome! great food, great service, constant flow of drinks and the dessert was awesome! my kids are picky eaters and even they enjoyed the food - Movie and entertainment selection was awesome - Lastly, appreciated the prompt service for getting child stroller at the door of the aircraft at all times (from FCO-YYZ-PDX)"
Cons: "- The new designed aircraft are meant to pack more passengers which means the aisle for rolling the trolley is very narrow - poor flight attendants were having a challenge and bumping trolley into seats (not their fault at all) - given likelihood of injuries and lawsuits, I highly recommend AIR CANADA management to do something about this narrow aisle before it is too late (i.e. major lawsuit filed by future passenger on account of injury sustained because of getting hurt by food trolley)"
Pros: "The crew in the flight from Rome were marvelous. I was sick during the flight and they were helpful"
Cons: "The flight was horribly delayed and my plans and onwards transit was seriously affected. I missed my connecting flight from Toronto to New York and as a result, my plans to proceed to Boston was destroyed. When I spoke to the agent in Toronto, to route me to Boston, she told me that Air Canada's contract with me is to a place and not necessarily at a particular time. That was unbelievable. I arrived New York stranded, at 1:30pm, with no ability to continue to Boston. I had to spend so much money to get me to Boston. It was a horribly long day. Over 25 hours on the road, counting when I arrived Rome airport and when I finally got home."
Cons: "Air Canada was a horrible experience from beginning to end"
Pros: "There we delays and baggage transfer issues at Montreal for connecting flights. There were delays leaving from Rome."
Cons: "Delays and comfort"
Pros: "My vegan meal made it to me"
Cons: "Complicated boarding"
Cons: "There was no working charge for electronics."
Pros: "Paid for extended legroom, which was adequate."
Cons: "The plane in the middle in front areas was very, very warm. On a six hour flight, everyone sweated the whole way."
Pros: "The crew and the service was top notch."
Pros: "Movies were good. Landing was good."
Cons: "Ventilation was not great. And the Wrap was awful."
Pros: "Our family of four took this nine and a half hour flight on a day when it was important we stay awake. The inflight entertainment helped. My husband watched three movies, my kids and I played games (often together), and we used the accurate flight tracker to monitor our status. The food wasn't bad at all. Lunch was either chicken or pasta (which my son and I enjoyed) and we had wraps for snack (chicken or veg, which were very good). The beverage service was good and they came around a couple of extra times with water. The flight staff were friendly and helpful. My son is special needs and they were very accommodating."
Cons: "Boarding this flight was a zoo. Instead of orderly calling zones as usual, it was an every-man-for-himself atmosphere. And then boarding was actually onto a bus which carried us out to the plane. Boarding was in front and back of the plane, but deplaning was only at the front of the plane, which took forever and we had a connecting flight. Word of advice: don't try to connect with less than two hours if you're heading to the US. We had at least four checkpoints to go through. (But that clearly wasn't on Air Canada and they, in fact, had someone at Customs watching out for us.)"
Pros: "I really enjoyed my flight from food to comfort with blankets and pillows"
Cons: "TVs on flight didn't work on most Window seats sides and mostly worked in the middle. Wish they had checked the TVs before boarding everyone especially on a long flight."
Pros: "People at check-in were lovely. Crew was overall great. One crew member was snippy about the window shade being open. same one was sarcastic about delivering wine to us."
Cons: "Waiting area at Rome were mediocre and boarding via a bus cumbersome."
Pros: "Staff are wonderful."
Cons: "Not comfortable compared to other airlines."
Pros: "I liked the personal TV with movie and TV shows."
Cons: "The food was not very good, but was not expecting much."
Pros: "wonderful airplane fantastic crew endless options for entertainment"
Cons: "wonderful airplane fantastic crew endless options for entertainment"
Pros: "Good seats Treated like I was important"
Pros: "Flight from Vancouver to Frankfort was perfect. All crew members and gate members were pleasant to deal with."
Cons: "Air Canada is not really an airline, I suspect they are trying to go bankrupt or some wire stuff because there is no way they are trying to be a real airline with what they offer, worst airline in the world."
Pros: "Safe landing"
Cons: "Service. French crew from Montreal. Rude at best. They were bothered to do anything. Awful service. Movies only via iPad with Air Canada app. Old movies. No free wine with dinner on international flight. Both luggage damaged and they do not cover it."
Cons: "One hour late due to mechanical issue. There was very crowed thru US custom in Toranto. Took 1.5 hours to completed US custom."
Pros: "Good food. Easy flight"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and helpful. Montreal is a very manageable airport. Staff there was also courteous and efficient. Food was very good for airline fare. Renting an IPad for $10 to watch movies in-flight was a reasonable option for distraction on a 9 hour flight. We were quite pleased with Air Canada and will not hesitate to book with them again."
Cons: "My seat back was not reclining for the entire 9 hour trip"
Pros: "able to get a whole row to myself"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment unless you had your own laptop or other device"
Pros: "I appreciated that we were given details by announcement on when we could expect food and beverages at the beginning of the flight."
Cons: "The landing"
Cons: "I could not see anything because I didn't know that I had to install the app on my laptop"
Pros: "Staff on board and pilots did well"
Cons: "The baggage checkin was awful. The boarding check in was awful. The security check in was awful. The customs check in was awful. Understaffed and inefficient. The baggage conveyor backed up. The same staff that checked in our baggage was the same person who then ran upstairs to check us in at gate and it was all hand done and not computer scanned. No check in kiosks to make ticket checkin faster. Lines were all backed up and I barely made flight and my connection. Many either missed flights it connection or plane was held up to get people to flights. The lady at customs check in was good trying to handle the back ups but the shrine was severely backed up and understaffed. The pilots made good time and handle the turbulence well. Staff on board did well with timing of food and drinks Entertainment on board was awful. Didn't find out until on board on 8 hour international flight that needed an iPad with downloaded app for entertainment and therefore I had three kids that had nothing to do. Never did I have such an issue with an international flight that was so poorly managed. So disappointed."
The flight itself was perfect. The gate is quite a long way from immigration and chroma. The only downside.
Flight cancelled. Rebooking resulted in seat beside toilette. Horrible 9hrs.
Pros: "There were delays beyond the pilot or crews control and they handled the situation in a very courteous and respectful way, much appreciated."
Cons: "90 minute delay almost caused missed connection"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Crew was helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Check-in process took nearly two hours because of other flight cancellations. Very chaotic process. Seat on plane was not very comfortable and arm rest was broken. However, flight went smoothly with an early arrival. Very good flight attendants and good food."
Pros: "for economy on an American carrier it was fine."
Cons: "American carriers just aren't as good at international as non-american carriers. Seats/food/entertainment/overall experience just not as good. Pick an international carrier when you can"
Pros: "The seats had more legroom on this small 2+2 then the 3+3 we connected from."
Cons: "No entertainment as we were unable to download the app needed and had no notice before we went to the airport. Because small plane and length of flight only snack items available and our connection was late getting us there and left us no time"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very friendly, very attentive and always smiling. They took great care of the passengers and in particular a woman with a crying baby. It didn't bother me at all, but I know the parents were concerned and the flight attendants were so kind and helpful. The food was truly fantastic, and served hot and with a smile. They repeatedly asked us about water, as the cabin was dry. I would give the crew an A+!"
Cons: "My husband and I have not flown for several years and have always enjoyed past flights. However, it seems as if the seats have much less leg room than years ago. I am only 5 foot 4 inches, and was very uncomfortable. My husband is 6 feet tall and he was miserable. Sleeping on this 9 hour flight would have been helpful, but due to the cramped seating, it was pretty much impossible. The little pillow and blanket did help with some back support, but I guess making more money per flight is more important than comfort."
Pros: "Crew attitude and service excellent"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth. Didn't get hungry, because they provided snacks, beverages, and a decent lunch/dinner. Liked that pillows and a blanket were provided. Liked the free entertainment with some good movie and TV choices to help pass the time."
Cons: "Hated the tight seating, very narrow, so uncomfortable; Couldn't sleep and I WAS FREEZING. Ended up with a terrible cold and sore throat. Angry that I had to pay $100 each way for my second checked bag. Terrible policy. Probably won't fly anymore, if I can help it!"
Pros: "Smooth flight. On time"
Pros: "Economy plus seats were comfortable and definitely worth it. In-flight service was very good."
Cons: "Multiple delays mean we deplaned nearly 3 hours late in Chicago. The plane was late inbound, had a minor mechanical issue, and on top of that we were at a remote gate so they had to bus everyone to plane. After all that, we sat on the tarmac even longer because of “traffic”. Our takeoff clearance had expired and we were behind a bunch of planes. After landing in Chicago, we waited an additional 30 minutes because our gate was occupied."
Cons: "We almost miss our flight cos the line was so long in the custom check out n the airport crews kept directing us in the wrong lines. It was very unorganised."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "the costumer service at the Newark Airport, was bad."
Pros: "Flight was ahead of schedule to land and there was no issues of gates or disembarking"
Cons: "The food was terrible and the crew was bordering on civil there was no pleasantness about the services they provided"
Pros: "THE SECURITY CHECK WAS A BIT TO MUCH, BUT OVERALL A WONDERFUL FLIGHT."
Pros: "Very efficient check in,leaving Rome."
Cons: "Strong bathroom oder in flight. "Cow cart transpot"t in DC"
Pros: "The kindness of the crew, was having a panic attack.They calmed me down with a smile an plenty of water.Thanks"
Cons: "I would have liked more nuts ,"
Pros: "Flight was early and smooth"
Cons: "Stewardess acted like she hated her job."
Cons: "Both of my flights either did not have a working faucet or water to wash your hands in the restroom. On my outbound flight, no water would come out of the faucet. On my return flight, there was a large sticky note on the faucet indicating that it dd not work and a few sani-wipes in a box in the sink. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Especially since it was 10 hours. The staff brought water around as an extra which was great to keep us hydrated. Plus a decent lunch ice team and snacks. Comfortable plane."
Pros: "The TV's on the plane were newer and easy to use."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly, particularly one woman who would roll her eyes at folks anytime they asked for anything. Occasionally, they would say they were out of something only to "magically" have it appear later. The landing was about the worst I have experience. Must have been a rookie pilot."
Pros: "On time, good service very attentive crew"
Cons: "Ice cream desert served was Toffee flavor, ugh..."
Pros: "Great attendance kind courtesy"
Cons: "My flight got canceled, I received no notice, my husband and I were rebooked on different flights arriving to IAD 4 hours apart making my 10 hour day a 22 hour one"
Pros: "The movie selection was great"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "Nice entertainment system. Comfortable seats. Lots of bathrooms. Good dinner. The hot sandwiches served shortly before landing were actually tasty."
Cons: "United has changed my seat twice. I sign up for an aisle and they move me to the window. I can't believe that if there is a plane change they move people in Business and First around without notification. On this trip, they did it again, on the flight leg from Rome to Chicago. If I hadn't noticed the change as soon as I checked in I would have spent over 9 hours in a window seat, which would have meant being unable to get up and move easily to prevent sciatica and other issues. Hard to hear the gate crew in Fiumicino."
Pros: "Staff attentive, came through often, pleasant. Food was good, Free wine or beer with meal."
Cons: "Seats can be moved back too far, so person in rear has too little space."
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional. I also enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "I felt like we had to go to terminals to terminal, and get on so many shuttles."
Cons: "We had a 2+ hour delay after boarding and prior to takeoff due to some combination of a problem with the auxiliary power unit and rerouting requiring additional refueling. No air conditioning and very hot environment for most of this time. The crew was visibly upset by the delays and repeatedly blamed the local groundcrew/staff while doing very little to make the passengers more comfortable. It took >1hr for them to pass water. No apologies. No effort during flight to make up for the discomfort (eg free wifi access). Very frustrating experience."
Cons: "I would have liked the flight to be Luftansa- I wouldn't have purchased the tix if I had known it was United."
Cons: "it was extremely cold on the plane"
Pros: "Flight left on rime."
Cons: "Flight diverted to Austin TX due to weather. Flight crew gave us bad info as we were waiting to get fueled to get to Houston. Upon arrival in Houston only one United rep to help 50 + people. Tempers got hot. All flights to Corpus were over booked so rep said to sleep in airport and take first flight out in the morning. Not! I just got my luggage, rented a car and drove home. Not a good experience overall even I know it was the weather that caused it."
Pros: "The Crew was so friendly and nice The woman at check in upgraded me to economy plus to help me get an aisle seat"
Cons: "I sat next to a very large old woman who was spilling out of her seat into mine. I was told at check in it was a full flight so did not think to ask to move. But then I mentioned it to the stewardess near the end of the flight who was sympathetic and said that she wished I would have said something earlier and that she would have moved me because there were other empty seats."
Pros: "The flight crew and flight was perfectly smooth and crew was very nice and appologetic about the delay etc. even gave me a separate snack due to food allergy."
Cons: "Delays are never fun and unfortunately our flight was delayed, but more importantly the pre-boarding staff and crew were rediculously rude. They yelled at one lady bc she didn't speak English. They were stressed I am sure with delays and working the gate that has like 5 flights leaving at once, but they could be a bit better at their job by being polite to us the customers! They were so frazzled bc of what was going on that they acted like it was our fault, which of course it isn't! Additionally, our flight was overbooked by 6 people! And had standby of 4 and the staff kept announcing they were going to kick 6 people off and we wouldn't know until we were boarding and it was going to be by whoever paid the lowest price per ticket which btw is not the policy. The United policy says that it goes by class of ticket, which probably goes hand in hand, but hey really need to get thier staff on board with the policies. It makes you feel pretty crappy sitting there waiting to see if just bc you bought your ticket on a Tuesday at a good rate that you are not going to make it home to see your family! And the people making the announcements could be a bit more chipper also, we the customers didn't overbook the flight and we surely do not want to miss said flight so don't announce over PA system in threatening way bc United is trying to make more money by overbooking flights! This might never be read, but I hope that kayak can pass along this information to the Dullus United team to try and make the flights more enjoyable in the future"
Pros: "Ice cream Sunday."
Cons: "45 minutes delay at Rome during departure. Dirty bathroom. Limited movies."
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"
Cons: "The airport was extremely disorganized and I will never fly out of Rome again. Boarding and Unboarding were absolutely awful though"
Pros: "I missed my flight and was willing to rework my schedule and therefore United was willing to work with me. I received a flight change for free because of recent terrorist events and I am grateful for the help. All of the staff was extremely friendly."
Cons: "It probably isn't United's fault, but since a terrorist attack occurred in France a lot of people were trying to fly back to the U.S. from Rome at the time. I missed my flight because the line just to get into the terminal building was hours long. See positive comments to learn how United handled it, but was still stressed I missed my flight home. I actually ended up flying home from Barcelona"
Cons: "Don't fly United. In boarding my first flight, they asked me to check my carry on (my only luggage) since the flight was super packed. We had to deplane shortly after boarding and switch to another plane. Since this delay was going to make me miss my connection, I got on the phone with a United agent and changed my reservation, but the agents at the gate refused to help me get my bag off the plane, so I didn't have clothes for the majority of my trip. The worst part was the attitudes of the gate agents and customer service reps toward all the passengers. Perhaps they couldn't be outwardly apologetic to avoid liability, but there was no excuse for them to be cold and dismissive."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We wont ever fly United again."
Pros: "We got off the ground very nearly on time, and the captain was communicative about our short delay. The entertainment options were good, and on this particular flight - though not the one in the other direction - the food was quite tasty. (I had the artichoke cannelloni.)"
Cons: "The seats are awfully close together, so that when someone reclines his chair, you quickly feel you are being squeezed."
Cons: "We have to be delay check-in our baggage because at the baggage check-in was ONLY PERSON worked - She DID NOT Work as her Job - Just very Slow... Finally We need to left our baggage at the airport even we did as to pay for return for next fly ... Very Poor service !! any question about that just call me! I'm happy to answer all to make this clear Phone: 1 4023190490 Mr. Tuan D Mai Thanks for asking"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "1.5hr wait at the gate for baggage to be transferred."
