Last minute change of aircraft from Amsterdam to Mexico City made our seats different and not as comfy as on the 787-900 planned. Crew was a little bit snippy and not as friendly as I expected on Aeromexico. KLM crews are fantastic! KLM food is not so much for their short-haul flights serving these salad vegan boxes.
Delays. Endless walking at Schiphol, most exits closed. No staff or signs.
Thumbs up for KLM crew, planes and Schiphol Airport, though short on staff and a little late everything went smooth, including the flight.
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
I love KLM, its very spacious and clean and the landing is always very soft. Great Airline!
Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot
Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good
Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"
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: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"

Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Cons: "If only there was a way to be able to lie down and sleep - you would be pioneers in aviation"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
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"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
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: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
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: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
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"
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
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."
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"
Cons: "While dropping off my luggage, the staff confirmed that the booking made and paid for was indeed a emergency exit seat. Once on board the seat did was not an Emergency exit row."
The bathrooms were not very clean and the water would accumulate in the sink
Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not loose my luggage:)"
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Cons: "Seat angle adjustment was not the most comfortable for sleeping."
Cons: "Thé qualité officielle the images"
Pros: "Crew was good, seat was not, it was freezing cold and one little blanket was inadequate!"
Cons: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."
Cons: "We had a short delay"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and welcoming!"
Pros: "Amazing crews!"
Cons: "The flight delayed for 2xhours from Paris to Cincinnati"
Cons: "boarding wasn't good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Cons: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Cons: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"
Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Pros: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."
Cons: "Business class seating on the AirBus 318 is very cramped."
Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1h30min, so we arrived very late"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "That flight have been short"
Cons: "Fly attendants have been in hurry when they served snack"
Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"

Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"
Pros: "Love the flight attendant, loads of food couldn’t take it anymore. Professionalism at its peak."
Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Cons: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "the food is terrible."
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) Front seat pocket bulging with 2 extra-thick in-flight magazines 2) No on-board wifi 3) Not much seating room - very thin"
Pros: "leg space in plane"
Cons: "The crew was not very polite."
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "Lovely crew, clean toilets"
Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority? The economy got their bags before 1st and business."
Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Pros: "The flight crew and flights itself were great."
Cons: "I was told the wrong flight time, wrong terminal, wrong gate, and wrong airline. I couldn't check-in online. It was horribly inconvenient and I nearly missed the flight. We got there with 5 minutes until the doors closed."
Pros: "Boarding sevece was very nice and helpful Thanks so much"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
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"
Cons: "When my husband retrieved his luggage, it smelled terrible- like dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows down & throw away the baggage when we got home."
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: "Some crew were friendly."
Cons: "Your seats and leg room are terrible...but you already know that. I am not at all overweight but I am tall and I dread 9 hours in your planes. Fortunately I was able to move to an exit row (without paying over $100 that your company wanted to charge me)."
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: "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: "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: "Appreciated the friendliness of the flight crew, compared to two other international flights I have taken in the past year and a half on other airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seating, as I suppose is the norm on most airlines nowadays. But feels torturous on a long flight. Also, had to pay extra to choose seats. I think that’s outrageous."
Pros: "Boarding was on time. Food was acceptable for an airline. Crew was friendly. The Boeing 787 was well equipped."
Cons: "Departure was about one hour late."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was great. Overall, a very smooth experience."
Cons: "Really only one complaint - the armrest between my seat and my toddler’s seat did not raise up. This meant he could not lay his head on my lap to sleep. Other armrests has this capability. Not sure why they would not all be able to do this."
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: "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: "Quality and clean aircraft, and service. Arrived early. Apparently this is one of AA's highest-quality routes."
Cons: "The legroom in economy is the bare minimum-- you could not get the seats closer together."
Pros: "Flight operations such as boarding and flight timing was good"
Cons: "The American airline flight attendants were not customer focused and did not care one bit about service quality Not courteous Unfriendly and did not care about service at all"
Pros: "I like the fact that you could watch movies to make the time go by more quickly"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. The isles are narrow and every time the gentleman across the isle got up to stretch his backside was in my face. The crew would come down the isle with the cart and about take my arm off."
Pros: "Food and service on flight was wonderful."
Cons: "Flight was 1 1/2 hrs late. Staff in customs were completely rude & had no regard for those of us trying to make connections. Had to spend the night in Philadelphia & placed on PACKED flights thru Chicago, causing even more extended delays home."
Cons: "The touch screen for the video monitors need to be replaced. It was very difficult to select a movie."
Pros: "Leg room. Crew. Nice airplane. Even captain greeting passengers."
Pros: "Aircraft and crew were great"
Cons: "After booking tickets months in advance only to get to airport and have a hassle of getting seats together as we are a family of 4. Finally got the seats from Rome to DFW changed and didn't have time for DFW to Denver changed. If your going to offer seat assignments up front for a fee, you need to stick to it. Will never go through a 3rd party again to book flights, should have known better."
Cons: "Need to serve more water"
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"
Pros: "That we arrived safely and that the flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats again with no head rest. I have not had this on any flight of any length for a very long time. Most seats have the adjustable head rest. WHO EVER HEARD OF HAVING TO PAY ADDITIONAL FOR SEATS. AND I PAID TWO TIMES AS I CHANGED MY FLIGHT TO AN EXIT ROW SO PAID DOUBLE...TWO TIMES WHICH IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY."
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. The flight was smooth. It was nice that they announced to pilot's retirement after our trip."
Cons: "Of the two bathrooms in my area, one was out of order. The other ran out of toilet paper. The plane seemed old and tired, and the movies didn't work. I was surprised that there were no personal entertainment screens. The BA flight legs on my trip were quite superior in all ways."
Cons: "I was not sent an email 24 hours prior to my flight to check in."
Pros: "We got great service and the food was not bad. Additionally, we got lots of free wine!"
Cons: "We were not able to check in online or pick our seats until we actually got to the airport."
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"
Pros: "Friendly, engaged and helpful check-in staff at Fiumicino (a first), great aircraft (777-200), early landing and no wait time for a gate or baggage reclaim. Seat back entertainment was also excellent relative to other flights, as was the flight crew."
Pros: "New configuration made the flight seem much shorter. Crews attention to detail, flow and timing of service made the flight feel hours shorter than normal."
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: "You are pushed into 4 square inches. But the boarding and checkin process was much much better then the ny experience."
Cons: "Food and comfort"
Pros: "They were offering free checked carry-on luggage at the gate so took advantage of that which got my wife and I pre-boarding. Which was a good thing because the overhead bins were awful on this dinosaur plane."
Cons: "I thought we were getting a history tour upon boarding as one of the first airplanes ever constructed or something. There should never be an airplane that doesn't have personal entertainment on board for an 11+ hour flight. The main cabin had two monitors up front on each side and one in the middle section. We paid for "premium" seats, no charging options. The overhead storage could barely hold the smallest of carry-on luggage. The food was mediocre at best. We were pretty close to the front but every time the beverage cart made it to us the wine was already empty from the previous passengers. Overall pretty miserable flight"
Pros: "People were ok and felt bad for all that went wrong This leg was operated by American Airlines and they are horrible compared to our experiences on British airways."
Cons: "small leg room - less on American that operated the flight then British. food was just ok and the entertainment system was broken When flying British try to make sure its not operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "Stewards were patient and attentive."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant, boarding efficient."
Cons: "Food was very mediocre but nothing new in air travel. The biggest complaint is that there was no individual light available for each person to sue to read. On a transatlantic flight of 10+ hours that is not overnight, it is a bit much to expect customers to fill that much time if one cannot read because the lights aren't working. The flight attendant said it was a very old plane as the reason why, not exactly what one wants to hear. Also, the plane was different than the one I prepaid my seats for, thus the money I spent on bulkhead seats was wasted as we just got two normal seats. Not a good experience."
Pros: "Crew was excellent good and frequent food, snack, and beverage service great entertainment choices"
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."
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Pros: "No problems-good flight."
Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Cons: "Was not able to check in online in advance. AA wouldn't recognize the booking # that was emailed to me. Sat on the plane for nearly 3 hours while a mechanical issue was looked at; lateness of the flight meant we missed our connection. When we got to the table for people who would miss connections to get our boarding pass for a rescheduled flight, there wasn't one for us. We got there, but this wasn't really a great experience."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash!"
Cons: "Never on time leaving/getting there, gates unavailable on landing, 40 minute wait for luggage, plane not working, lost important meeting in Rome, placed me in a dump hotel on worse area of Phili, surprised I got out of there alive.... I can write a book!"
Pros: "great service from flight attendance"
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: "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."
Pros: "II was disappointed with the food. Last May when I used AC it was much better, even edible. I left my IPad on the flight and it was not only retrieved and properly identified but was delivered to me on my connecting flight. Most grateful."
Cons: "The food."
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: "The food was good, very attentive staff, OK legroom (coach), and the cabin was kept cool, with pillow and blanket"
Cons: "Bathroom was a mess, boarding was a zoo, however, in all fairness, this was due to the construction at the airport, not necessarily Air Canada"
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: "Flight was comfortable, crew was nice"
Cons: "Entertainment system was lacking in movies and other things to watch"
Pros: "Good legroom in economy"
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: "entertainment system was very good. Crew were fine. The flight itself was fine as well, no issues with weather, etc so it was just long."
Cons: "The boarding at Rome was chaotic. They give you a "zone" assignment but they never used it. People were just milling around trying to figure it out. Weird."
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: "New plane, nothing was run down, the seats and tvs were in good repair."
Cons: "The board in and baggage drop of in Rome were a bit hectic and disorganized"
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: "The flight was on time compared to the schedule"
Cons: "Too cold (temperature) No screen but only ipad to rent"
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"
Pros: "49mins verse 6hrs"
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"
Cons: "Boarding delayed an hour, and another one hour until takeoff. I was late for my meeting for an hour. :("
Cons: "They delayed the flight 4 times. Very unprofessional"
Pros: "Crew attitude and service excellent"
Pros: "Leaving this company in the rear view mirror"
Cons: "Everything was awful"
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."
Pros: "- orderly boarding - calm crew despite many frustrating circumstances which delayed the flight"
Cons: "- Had to wait for catering to deliver carts before take off (this also caused a weight balance issue) - After carts were delivered, we were informed catering had forgotten one which caused more of a delay - While we were waiting, the plane started to become unbearably hot - After finally taking off, we were promised free Directv access for the delay but the entertainment was turned off 5 min into the flight due to technical difficulties"
Cons: "Delayed for hours, luggage was lost"
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: "Never again 1st class with United. Other than the bigger seat, really not much of a difference that would justify the added cost. I’ve been on many other airlines 1st class. I will say that with h United, it’s just not worth it."
Pros: "Lovely timing. Great crew"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and made it seem like it was my fault. Took forever to speak to someone! I had to drive to San Francisco last minute because they cancelled the flight two hours before my flight!"
Cons: "I paid 6 dollars to watch TV but the headphones plug in wasn’t working well."
Pros: "United - standard and expected fare!"
Cons: "How can they put you all inside a plane, pull out from the gate and then talk about gate delays for 45 mins? Another 15 mins on holding pattern. All this hoopla for a 45 mins flight!!"
Cons: "Delay getting off due to weather the crew said. This flight was very mediocre – seat was tight, crew were not very social or pleasant. Captain did keep us posted and was apologetic and kind."
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: "Crew was very kind, helpful, and informative."
Cons: "Outlet doesn't have USB slot for charging."
Pros: "Was able to fly standby and get home earlier. Crew member was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Small plane with limited overhead space, so had to check my bag which caused some confusion in Burbank because my bag like similar to another passenger's bag. Limited food choices. Bought prepared lunch, but wish I had more choices."
Pros: "Easy to board and everyone very friendly"
Cons: "Nothing negative to say"
Cons: "My missed / delayed luggage."
Cons: "This is the second time I have had a flight flat out cancelled to Burbank from SFO for blurry reasons. I was told it was an air traffic control issue. I was re-routed to LAX, which defeats the entire purpose of booking this particular flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours to wait for crew that was delayed elsewhere as they were coming off duty and had to presumably fly them back to Burbank so our entire flight was held to wait for them."
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."
Cons: "Didn't take the flight. I want a refund!! You cancelled my flight and I couldn't take later flight. I had to buy a new flight from AA for $255 to get home in time for work. Please refund me and call at 585-727-9282"
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: "Everyone was very polite and easy going. Definitely kept me comfortable(:"
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "Looks like almost all flights were delayed here. However we were abke to be rerouted yo catch connecting flight thanks to the quick thinking of service staff at terminal. Food/free snack was lacking. Some staff seemed a little short and less attentive. Leg room is a joke with coach."
Cons: "Delay delay delay of flights. I need united to have planes ready on standby in case of delays. This is a serious ongoing issue that no one in planning is paying attention to. So PAY Attention! Will someone please hire a snack maker that can make good low salt, healthy snacks?!"
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: "Customer service who helped us switch flights from Burbank to LAX was helpful"
Cons: "Booked and paid for a flight for 4 had no seats, put on another flight that was delayed for 5 hours. Sat in Denver airport for 6.5+ hours with small children. Could not get seats together on second flight"
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "No complaints."
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."
