Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"

Pros: "The crew was very good and there was enough leg room."
Cons: "The dinner option was underwhelming."
Pros: "The business class seats are the best we’ve had. Plenty of room, nicely laid out, good organization design. The blankets were fluffy and very comfortable. Crew was super attentive and friendly. For such a long flight, it was very pleasant, will highly recommend."
Pros: "Meals were excellent and plane was very clean. Economy delight is definitely an upgrade worth considering with extra leg room and space in front of you in general."
Cons: "Boarding can get crowded so don't be in a rush"
Pros: "The flight itself was good! The one from London to Delhi was better than from JFK to London"
Cons: "I wasn’t told about my baggage were being delivered through different airlines the other day!"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "Everything was good in this flight"
Pros: "Pilot was great— we don’t thank them enough for a smooth and safe arrival. Plane was great. Ammenities were given (such as ear plugs etc)"
Cons: "Crew members are a bit bland and lack customer service, but I noticed that as a whole in Australia (slow service/not really interactive or communicative & very quick to make comments and leave) not sure if they just hate Americans based on the media or what. One crew member cut in line at the restroom when there was 3 of us waiting to go. Another told me my husband couldn’t receive his meal because he was napping and then he quickly walked away— Yet i received mine on the flight coming to Australia when my husband asked for me? Sanitation between flights should be more strict-my headphones were opened which lead me to believe my pillow wasn’t changed either, since one had a case and one didn’t."
Pros: "I loved the food and the amount of it. There were so many movies and tv shows and music to choose from!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable enough for me to fall asleep."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Pros: "Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!"
Cons: "The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "The selection of entertainment"
Cons: "My seats headphone connection did not work. I had to hold it and wiggle it around if I wanted to listen to anything."
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."
Pros: "The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat."
Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Pros: "Efficient, friendly, on-time!"
Pros: "Met expectations."
Cons: "Things out of your control - time !!"
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "Not having to pay for a checked bag. The check-in process was very easy The bag drop-off line was pretty speedy."
Cons: "The airline stewardesses moved very noisy passengers next to me and talked to them the whole flight."
Pros: "The enforcement of the quiet time to sleep on the flight. The excellent meals. The quality of the entertainment system."
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"
Cons: "Both my departing flight and returning flight had broken wifi on it. Very bummed"
Pros: "ear plugs, eye mask, pillow and blanket provided. fruit, water and juice available without asking someone for it. adequate leg room, good movie selection and 2 meals with wine provided."
Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"
Cons: "You lost our luggage. We were able to pick up our luggage after the Sydney flight, but they never made it to Minneapolis. What I don't understand is why we were not able to get boarding passes and seat assignments when we did our check-in in Sydney? Why is that so hard? Also, when we were getting our boarding pass in LAX it was so confusing when it asked for checked bags. Our bags were already on a belt going to who knows where - were we supposed to check "yes"? If we had a boarding pass this would not have been an issue."
Pros: "Al comprar el ticket no se aclaraba que a pesar de ser un vuelo internacional se debia pagar por las valijas. Venia de hacer 5 vuelos internos por Australia y en todos los casos tanto Jet como Quantas aclaraban que se debia pagar por el adicional!!!"
Cons: "Let's see, my connecting flight was delayed. I missed my Sydney flight so they put me ona flight to Brisbane which was actually pretty great. Then, oh then they lose my bag. Two days later I guess is an appropriate time to then put it on the next flight? What? My bag is 20 pounds, smaller than a standard sized Dachshund. And low and behold they said I can spend up to $50 on necessities. Too kind, virgin Australia, too kind."
Pros: "Entertainment system is great"
Cons: "Still very cramped. Cannot lower tray if you have anything in pocket (like an iPad or magazine) Should board rear section first."
Pros: "Flight staff exceptionally friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room always appreciated"
Pros: "Professionalism value of service"
Cons: "let me think...."
Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."
Pros: "Great service, tons of food"
Cons: "This VS007 flight is in an old Airbus that needs a major overhaul, especially compared to newer planes in their fleet. The screens are hardly visible, the movie selection more limited, the seats old, and no electrical outlets for a 11hr flight is just not acceptable these days!"
Pros: "Top notch for a long economy class flight. Great new plane!"
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"
Pros: "Food was a big improvement and staff very friendly and helpful. Seats not as comfy as some airlines but we're okay."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great."
Cons: "Was almost impossible to make this connection. Honestly I probably should’ve been moved to yet another later flight. Ground crew said my bag had made it on board, so i waited and waited but it never showed up in Kraków. Lost luggage team was helpful and told me it didn’t make the flight - it was on the next one. Hopefully it gets delivered soon but it will be difficult bc my air bnb has no buzzer"
Cons: "Lufthansa not taking any responsibility for allowing connection time to be so short. Everyone on the fight from London missed their connections!"
Cons: "I was at the end of a long flight, so exhausted and feel sea sick. I cannot give good comments for this since it was short but a little bumpy flight , i almost throw up at the end."
Cons: "Food and seats"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Pros: "It was really nice having the bassinet for our little one."
Cons: "My wife encountered a rude attendant after simply getting up and asking for water."
Pros: "Im stuck in London due to flight delays. I will never book with kayak again. I am so fed up with travel ticket i booked with kayak"
Pros: "Standard flight and comfort."
Cons: "Food was absolutely beyond horrible...and the crew would run instead of walk down aisles to wherever their dedtination was."
Cons: "No WiFi, seats had no cushion"
Pros: "Flight crew and airport crew very helpful ,"
Cons: "Due to delay in LA, was rescheduled to later flight which was also delayed"
Pros: "Great service, smooth, on-time flight."
Cons: "A little older aircraft and seat was very warned"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, there was no TV or any other entertainment"
Cons: "See above. Going both ways..."
Pros: "Great food, great service. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The video screen at my seat was malfunctioning."
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Crew was nice, Feel safe"
Cons: "We left Frankfurt over hour late, no entertainment at all, small plains have usually few big TVs on the sealling there was nothing."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and food was not great"
Pros: "Arrived safely; good selection of movies; sound reasonable."
Cons: "Departed and landed late; virtual no assistance in close connections; even though I paid for economy plus, the seat was terribly uncomfortable and did not properly recline; overhead cabin storage was limited and even did not easily accommodate carry on luggage; food was served cold and unreasonably small dinner and breakfast."
Pros: "I like everything about this airline. The entire crew is always happy to serve and extremely helpful. The food is very good and served hot. When our flight was delayed and it was questionable whether we'd make our Lufthansa connection, there was a small bus with 2 Lufthansa crew members waiting for us on the ground - they escorted us through Customs and directly to the door of the airplane so that we'd make the flight. Service I have never gotten on an American airline!"
Cons: "Plane was old and had no in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "good flight."
Cons: "Ran a timy bit late but staff was all very nice."
Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."
Cons: "Late arrival in Munich, missed connection to Krakow, no rebooking and nobody cared that we, 3 people, get to our destination the same day. Spent 12 hours ( 10 am to 10 pm ) at Munich airport not knowing if and/or when we get on the plane, hoping to be on 10 pm flight, not making any connection all day long. Suggestions to fly through different city or on different airline we’re met with shrug and “ not possible “ reply. Having one Omaha Krakow Lufthansa ticket made no difference to anybody. Horrible experience specially that one of us was 80 years old. Will never fly with Lufthansa again. None of my friends will. Dreading my flight back. Kasia Bradley"
Cons: "Big chaos on airport: 3x changed the Gate, workers at boarding don’t speak English and ask me to speak Germany...everything was terrible and I never use Lufthansa again and don’t recommend to anybody..."
Pros: "Held the plane for late arriving transfers. Good food."
Cons: "Tiny space for 8 hour flight. Men not sharing arm rests or leg room. Really really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was a mess- started late which made our departure late. Also though I had booked the ticket with united as a MileagePlus member, I didn’t get priority boarding, not could we pay to upgrade our seats at the gate desk. Overall disappointing experience as a member of one of their affiliate membership programs."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "Wonderful crew and amazing soft landing, like cream."
Cons: "Economy seat space is small for 11 hours flight. get the meal of my choice, also as I tried to check in at home, the system did not give me choice to check in or change the seat."
Cons: "We called customer service to change our seats to an aisle seat on both of our flights due to a knee injury and the representative changed them for us after trying to make excuses that she couldn't. When we boarded we found out she gave us BOTH middle seats in the middle of the plane on both flights, she lied to us about them."
Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"
Pros: "Once again Lufthansa crew is the best"
Pros: "I really don't remember. I slept through the entire flight."
Cons: "They boarded us from the back and the front of the plane so at one point you had people trying to pass each other in the aisles. Weird. That could've been handled better. Also, people were allowed to put their back packs in the over head so didn't leave much room for luggsge carry on. Flight attendants weren't helpful either. One just said that all carry on should be able to under the seat."
Pros: "They had delicious little sandwiches for breakfast, and were amazingly efficient at getting out the snacks and coffee."
Cons: "I didn't like missing my flight"
Pros: "I liked that it was on time"
Cons: "everything was ok"
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled my flight on November 23rd a few hours prior to departures because their pilots went on a strike. When I called and asked if they would rebook me the lady on the phone said that she could rebook for a trip that had two layovers from 2pm(Prague time) to 8:30pm(NYC time) for the 24th of November (thanksgiving). When I asked her if there was anything else she said that was the soonest flight she could find. When I checked my self I found and booked a flight for the 23rd. When I called back they refused to give me a refund."
Pros: "Very kind professional and accommodating crew"
Pros: "The service was good as they were making up for the entertainment system issues on the plane."
Cons: "Only 3 movies available on the entertainment system. Food on Lufthansa is bad."
Pros: "Safe and on time"
Cons: "Too cramped. 9 hrs of tight quarters"
Pros: "Nice plane and good crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Short flight so it was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."
Cons: "This long haul flight was on an Airbus plane with five restrooms in the basement. There was not enough space to accommodate people waiting in the basement so people had to stand on stairs or by the galley. Flight attendants kept on telling people not to do so but there was simply not enough space."
Pros: "I was travelling with small kids and I was asked t be boarded as first one. Therefore myself and kids were not required to queue"
Cons: "As I was with two kids when doing checked in I was not able to have three seats next to each other. I was required to negotiate in plane with another passenger to change the seat"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The layover time was too short and for the second time I barely made it to my connecting flight but my luggage didn't. That is very annoying."
Pros: "Food in premium economy was pretty good."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late leaving Heathrow"
Cons: "Seats on Air Canada Rouge are awful."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants ignored us. There was no legroom. There were no free snacks. It took forever to get our drinks."
Pros: "Food was OK, entertainment good"
Cons: "Paid almost $500 to upgrade to Premium economy - electronic window shades were not functional and was sitting on the South side getting full sun for all the flight. Eventually tore out pages from magazine and stuck them in the window to get some shade. This is the second Air Canada flight in 2 months with electrical issues that I have experienced."
Cons: "Overhead bins were tiny."
Pros: "That we got back safe during a snow storm."
Cons: "The staff were not friendly. I politely tried to give two flight attendants my garbage as they were collecting and because they already passed me they looked at me and ignored me. It’s also crazy that you pay so much for a flight and then have to pay for luggage and a meal when it’s a 4-5 hour flight. Flight was delayed twice. Which I can understand due to weather."
Pros: "Surprise.....on time , have luggage, fabulous crew, large aircraft."
Cons: "That this has not been MY past experience."
Cons: "Small seating"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean plane."
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "light in bathroom didn't work and was so small i couldn't help my three year old go without leaving the door open"
Cons: "Boarding desk woman was really cranky. Telling passengers to remain seated unless their zone wasn’t called. On board WiFi didn’t work so no entertainment. Hate that I have to pay extra to get normal leg room. The standard seats are brutal and the paid seats not much better."
Pros: "We arrived early in Toronto . Excellent Service"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 6 hours"
Cons: "Getting stuck at the boarding area for 6 hours in normal weather with no particular hazards for flying. Crew was good. They did their job."
Cons: "It was delayed by 24 minutes."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "After taking Air Canada to Toronto, this Air Canada flight from Toronto to Orlando was a shock- no back-of-seat tv screens, no entertainment choice, no meals provided, less space, less comfortable."
Pros: "Crew took very good care of me. They made sure I had a comfort seat."
Cons: "No enough choice of movies"
Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight I can remember in last couple years. My knees were squeezed into the seat in front, and when they reclined, the seat was like 1.5 cellphone lengths from my face. The particular route from SD to Toronto squeezes 15 more seats on this popular plane, making it the least knee room I can remember. I wouldnt say Air Canada has less legroom as a generalization, but this route and plane assigned has the least. I guess if you're taller, do a little research on the planes for your routes. No actual wi-fi was kind of annoying. You can access some content, but no real internet connection."
Pros: "We were eventually given meal vouchers. We also ended up staying an extra night on their coin since we had to miss our connecting flight.We were treated fairly but slowly. We would have had an eight hour transit in Vancouver but with the new flights there was one hour connection. With the replacement flight also late our luggage did not make it and we were not informed until we reached Australia."
Cons: "There were little babies and young children waiting with their parents to board this flight. Would have liked more consideration for them but the little ones all behaved so well! Updates were slow and then we had to pick up our luggage and wait in an area where there were no seats so we had to sit on the hard floor (or stand) for a long time."
Pros: "The process was ridiculous to get booked for a flight that morrow and get to hotel"
Pros: "The flight was half empty so was able to have a role to myself"
Cons: "Air Canada Rouge should be renamed Air Canada Rude. Employees are very un-friendly; Seat design on the plane is the most uncomfortable of any airline out there. Very close to each other and very little padding on cushion of seat. Dirty plane; don’t think they serviced it between flights, garbage in each seat pouch. Very cold on flight, crew did not regulate the climate control. Too many unnecessary announcements both in English then French. Each announcement seemed like it lasted about 10 minutes which no one listen. So much for trying to watch a movie that pauses every time the crew feels the needs to talk. Sat at gate for 30 minutes pass departure time without any explanation until right before we departed (waiting on passengers from late arriving flights). At lease they could have told us. Anyhow this is not the Air Canada of old. Air Canada Rouge shows no signs that they care about the comfort of their passengers."
Cons: "Lost suitcase"
Pros: "Friendly attendants made up for the defective entertainment system."
Pros: "Smooth, great crew"
Cons: "Nothing, it was great"
Pros: "Entertainment and food were nice. There were two meals, one would have been fine, but both were great."
Cons: "The check in counter in Dublin was horrendous. I was forced to check a luggage that was my carry-on on the outgoing flight so there was no reason it was not going to fit on the upper compartment, but the counter agent forced me to check it anyway, even with it being under weight limit. The line was huge and there were 5 counter agents, but 3, and at times 4 agents, at a time, were only pulling from the priority boarding line. We had to wait more than one hour to check in. Than to the boarding, the same people from the counter were the boarding agents. The boarding was extremely slow and again unorganized."
Pros: "May not fly Air Canada again!!!"
Pros: "On-time and quick boarding."
Cons: "Not enough leg room - similar to most airlines."
Pros: "No delay. The plane came half an hour early which is ok. There was no complimentary food but drinks were offered. It would have been nice if peanuts/cookies/chips were offered. There was no entertainment so the rating was 1star. Emails were sent to inform us of changes in schedule and also to check in on line. Leg room is good as we can stretch our legs (I guess you can say that we are not that tall) we wish to travel again with Air Canada in the future."
Pros: "The experience on the flight from san diego to Toronto was excellent from curb side there all the way to baggage claim in Toronto. The service by ground staff on both sides was excellent, The staff on board was helpful, efficient and very polite. In flight Entertainment was good too, unlike on the way to San Diego when the choice was so limited it was not worth my time to use it."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No leg room, no snack for a 5+ hour flight, a bit messy, no entertainment, not too comfortable"
Cons: "The flight stood on the runway for multiple hours. We should have been let out to the airport so we could eat"
Pros: "Everthing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Economy seating is no longer designed to fit any passenger who is even slightly above average height."
Pros: "I was not charged overweight for going over by 2 pounds since I had a Business Class ticket connection to my final destination."
Cons: "For an almost 4 hours, 400 USD international flight I would have expected to have at least a snack to eat a one luggage to check in on the price. I am an international traveler which doesn't have a choice but to carry a suitcase. Not to say that once on board I was requested to check in my carry on because there was no room on the plane and that I had to travel with my personal item on my feets since there was no available room at the over the head compartiment since I was identified with Zone 5 boarding."
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew"
Cons: "Connection was a hectic with staff sending up and down to get our boarding passes. TSA had short lines but long wait and a lot of attitude."
Pros: "Friendly airport and flight attendants. Ease of checkin."
Cons: "Our connection in Toronto was toooooooo short for seniors 70 years old."
Cons: "When you roll up on clerk at the check-in counter and she's already eyeing your carry-on bag you know you're gonna have a problem. My bag was purchased a month ago and I made sure it met all major airline specs so when she immediately told me I'd have to check it, I told her it would fit no problem in her little mold. She insisted that it would not and I'd have to PAY to check it. I picked it up and easily popped it into the mould but my zipper snagged on the way in and she said that I was not allowed to "force" it in. I then easily lifted it in and out twice without the zipper snagging. Then she insisted that I weigh it. 22lbs is not much at all so I figured I might get caught here but to my surprise I was only at 23lbs. So she immediately said I would have to pay because I was over weight.... BY 1 LB! So I opened my bag and took out bag of carrots and put it back on the scale. She was so pissed that she couldn't charge me anything that she never made eye contact for the rest of the process. She then said that because I had my cat with me I could not sit in the row I had booked because it was an exit row. I insisted that it was not an exit row as I had just flown on the plane four days earlier with my cat in the same seat. She refused and moved me to a row with less leg room despite my having paid for the upgraded seat (I'm 6'4"). Upon boarding, I confirmed with the flight attendant that my original row was NOT an exit row. It was behind the exit row and there are no restrictions for that. One terrible staff member is all it takes to ruin a flight. Air Canada Rouge also happens to be a soda can with wings so that doesn't help."
Pros: "Comfort of seats and spaciousness of the plane"
Cons: "Agent off loaded me and only me from return flight with zero reason. Second flight I was put on was delayed 2 hours. Sat for 5 hours in the airport for a 1 hour domestic flight. Customer service was terrible. Emailed Air Canada 4 days ago and have yet to recover any response."
Cons: "There wasn't a food in the International flight. Air Canada is so crazy!"
Pros: "The crew are very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats are very small with little legroom. My husband is 6"1 and sat in a middle seat. His knees were jammed into the seat in front of him. Full flight so he could not be reseated. There is no entertainment system which was ok since it was a red eye flight. I've have flown on many local and international carriers and the space on this aircraft was amongst the smallest I've come across."
Cons: "Delayed 20 minutes"
Cons: "The flight attendants were inconsiderate of the wishes and comfort of the passengers. Food and drink were offered for sale in tourist class shortly after takeoff in the morning. Since I had just had breakfast, I asked if the food and drinks would be available later. The answer was probably not, which indeed was the case. This was on a five hour flight. When I did want food and drink, I had to go to the attendant at the back of the plane. I was able to have a drink delivered to purchase a drink, but the one food item I wanted was not in stock. (This was from the beginning, and was also the case on the outgoing flight a week earlier. I was informed that I could not use my noise cancelling headphones, designed and purchased largely for flying during takeoff and landing, but had to use ear buds, which I did not have, do not like, and as a senior with hearing aids find uncomfortable. Thus, I missed the benefit of their noise cancelling feature and much of the movie I was enjoying. On the earlier flight, one of the two toilets was unavailable, causing long waits, but the attendant in the front of the plane refused to allow me to use that toilet, which was available. When I protested, she answered the same way perpetrators of crimes against humanity did "I am just following orders." Where is the concern for the humanity of a senior citizen? Also the previous flight connections was scheduled too closely so that with security and border clearance, I was barely able to board at the last minute, thus causing a great deal of stress, no time to ear or use the toilet at the terminal, once again unhealthy stress and discomfort, no concern for the humanity of the passenger."
Pros: "Billy Bishop airport is awesome!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew didn't accommodate a rebooking despite availability .. Although original flight did board soon after."
Cons: "We were stuck at the back of the plane with the kids who don't behave."
Pros: "Got to spread out onto two seats since flight was not crowded."
Cons: "Food options. No inflight seat with entertainment screen."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, plenty of overhead space for suitcase despite being the last boarding group"
Cons: "Information about passport presentation inconsistent with instructions received at online checkin. Seats are small and uncomfortable.Flight attendants monopolized aisles for more than half the 4 hr flight. Weren't flexible about allowing people to use the restroom and move back to seats."
Cons: "It was warm in the aircraft the entire time. Right after we departed beverages and food was served. A small thin cup was offered for a beverage. We were on the plane for 5+ hours (including a delay at the beginning). The beverage cart never came by again only a stewardess once with a liter square bottle and cups for water. I was parched upon arrival to Toronto."
Cons: "No TV on an eight hour flight. Food was terrible!"
