Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "British Airways did not correctly issue ticket to American Airlines and we have to wait another day before departure. Resulted in my loss of monies on various reservations"
Cons: "Initial delay and then take off delay because slot time had not been updated. Our family missed connections. Disaster follow up in terminal!!! So far far we have been over six hours from check in and are still not through immigration. This for an hour flight."
Cons: "We actually did not go directly to Marseille, but due to a delay, we missed our initial connection and had to take a flight from London to Frankfurt and then from Frankfurt to Marseille. The total trip was 24 hours long and exhausting."

Cons: "Seats are very narrow, distances between rows very short.’"
Pros: "Long wait between flights"
Cons: "No snack."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Leg room; aisle seat. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Only "tap" water was available at no additional charge for a 2.5 hour flight. (Imho, this a penny-wise-but-pound-foolish offering, as it leaves an acutely negative impression of BA with the customer.) Even when I tried to buy a diet soft drink, non were available. Also, delayed flight -- a moderate inconvenience and, alas, all too frequent occurrence."
Pros: "Upgrades at the gate. $450 for premium economy and $999 for Business."
Cons: "Too many follow ups No response and same updates when u check for one"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow."
Cons: "Flight attended was unfrontly.. bad food..."
Pros: "Good seats, good attention to the kids prior boarding."
Cons: "Language with the personnel was a minus. An experienced flight attendant uttered "Jesus F..... Christ" - as a reaction to people getting up before seatbelt signs have been switched off seems fair, the wordage is unacceptable from an airline that ought to be a pillar of decency."
Pros: "Smaller plane, Embraer, but relatively comfortable seats. Friendly personnel."
Pros: "Nice plane, very smooth flight, good landing."
Cons: "Small screen on movies, couldn't find charger station for my iPhone."
Pros: "I made it to Paris and I guess that's what's important"
Cons: "You could offer small bottles of water as a courtesy Flight Attendants are definitely rude. Not to me, but I watched them interact with other passengers and they are just baseline.. rude."
Pros: "The seats were smaller than other Business Class and rather inconvenient. No place for the water bottle, foot rest not easily configured, etc."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The metal boxes below the seats mean that the little space allowed to a person is now all the more clipped. My backpack wouldn't even fit under the seat. My knees are already pressed up against the chair in front of me, now there's nowhere for me to stuff my feet even."
Pros: "British airways made sure they gave no attention to African flights"
Cons: "The transit location"
Cons: "Their own employees didn't know that the flight was delayed, though their app had sent out a notice, and they refused to let me go through security, having already given away my seat more than an hour before the flight actually left. Then they refused to admit responsibility and do anything to help except to continue to put us on standby on their own full flights, knowing we wouldn't be able to get on one of those flights for at least a few days. They did finally give us a hotel for just one night and that was only after we kept reminding them that this was all their fault."
Pros: "The plane ride was excellent and boarding , ... was great. The class is not too crowded."
Cons: "The 8 seats per row in business class is very crowded and the practicality of it is far from optimal. The food is not much of a culinary experience"
Cons: "arrive the air craft. By buses"
Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "No food and entertainment which is expected for the short 2 hr flight."
Cons: "they lost my luggage"
Pros: "I had no trouble keeping myself entertained on the 10-hour flight from London to California. There were tons of movies to choose from, and that's not even counting all the television shows that were available. It's good that there are so many options b/c there is no wifi available for purchase."
Cons: "Not really related to the flight itself, but this was my first time flying British Airways, and they have a policy where you can't pick your seat until 24-hour in advance unless you pay an extra fee to choose early. I thought this was similar to Southwest's early bird check-in where no one really opts to pay for such a feature, but apparently with British Airways, everyone pays to pick a seat early. I checked in to my flight literally one minute after the site opened up and there were only middle seats left. So, if you've never flown BA before and you have a long flight, you might want to pay the extra fee to choose your seat early."
Pros: "Best Trans-Atlantic flight I have taken. Excellent crew and accommodating cabin."
Pros: "Especially a flight attendant...he was in the back of the plane, unfortunately I can't remember his name, he was so very nice , attentive to our needs and wants...what a difference it can make to have staff like him.And in general ell staff staff on board were very courteous and friendly...they were there not just to work, but to be kind and very pleasant."
Cons: "Hummmm I don't know. Liked everything!"
Pros: "very comfortable seats and crew was nice"
Cons: "it was an overnight flight so people wanted to sleep. took the crew till like forever to finally turn off or dim the lights..but soon after, people opened their window and sun was coming it. not sure what these idiots tried to see outside as there was nothing. sun made it hard to sleep because it was way too bright. other airlines make sure that windows are closed during overnight flights to ensure everybody will have a good sleep instead of getting woken up by the sunlight in their eyes. wish british airways would do the same. everything else was good, excellent service too"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was OK."
Cons: "Old plane, no USB ports or WiFi for a 10 hr trip. Selection of movies not good. Seats lumpy and not very comfortable. Got stuck next to someone that had started the party before he got on, inebriated and smelled. Was taking over my legroom and armrest. Unfortunately full flight so nothing crew could help with"
Pros: "The planes the people were very nice. Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Horrible connections We were on the southern coast of Spain wanting to go to Southern coast city of Nice France. We had to fly to LONDON then to Nice. It included a 9.5 hour layover on London."
Cons: "No air flow, very stuffy and cramped. When people recline seats it makes it even worse but everyone reclines on a 10 hour red eye."
Cons: "the plane sat on the ground after i boarded for several hours causing me to miss my connecting flight which caused my boyfriends family of 5 people to miss their next flight."
Cons: "The crew serving our area were terrible. Don was very rude to my elderly mother. There was a female attendant with long blond hair who was rude to another woman who was making a kindly statement. I would not choose American Airlines again given another choice."
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Yes, it was comfortable and they r nice."
Cons: "Ummmm delayed both flights were delayed, it was annoying"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Nasty people"
Pros: "Everything. Flying First class is the only way to fly"
Pros: "Super friendly"
Cons: "Maybe a hot meal?"
Cons: "We booked business class. JFK to LIS very nice. Seats were very comfortable and reclined flat. More leg room than in other business class seats. What they called business from LIS to Rome was just regular uncomfortable across economy seats with no one in the middle seat."
Pros: "It got us to our destination."
Cons: "Seats sucked. Screaming kids. Wouldn’t let us bring our carry-on for the last leg: Lisbon to Barcelona even though there was room."
Pros: "Seats and snack"
Cons: "No delay in departure"
Cons: "The early morning fight was delayed, and I appreciated that TAP notified me ahead of time. However, TAP did not communicate that despite the 2 hour delay, we were required to be at the airport checkin as if the flight was never delayed - and agent dismissed us as late. Only begging got us on flight."
Cons: "Not cancelling it"
Cons: "The check in process was chaotic and slow. At one point there was one woman checking in 3 lines of people for 45 mins before help arrived"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Be on time and that they dont loose my bags! Wait for and extra 2 hours in the arrival airport because of the lost"
Cons: "There was an undisclosed $120 baggage fee. The food was horrible and made me sick. We left nearly two hours late."
Pros: "crew was so very helpful. Food was surprisingly good"
Pros: "On this prop plane, the takeoff and landing was exceptionally smooth. Again, the crew gave outstanding service."
Cons: "All was perfect! Thank you."
Cons: "A little too warm but not unbearable. We paid extra for seats together but did not get to pick them. We would have preferred a window but were in the middle 2 of 4."
Pros: "Smooth flight, easy boarding."
Cons: "My bags cost more than the flight. Long line at Pasport check."
Cons: "Horrible Terrible airline Tap"
Cons: "We travelled with 2 carry ones and one checked bag throughout our 2.5 week honeymoon. Check in agent suggested that we check all 3 of our bags since the flight was full. We did. The flight from BCN to LIS was delayed 2 hours at the gate, but we were told we could somehow still catch our flight from LIS to PDL. We trusted that was true. We arrived at LIS without a single garment of clothing (we checked all 3 bags through to PDL), and then realized we missed the flight to PDL. We stood in line for 3 HOURS at the TAP help desk, only to wait behind a group of very angry people who monopolized the staff. Once we told the agent our situation, he told us there were no more seats on any flight to PDL the next morning. Not only that, but he could not provide a hotel for us to spend the night. This is 2:30am, 3:30am BCN time. He told us to find our own hotel, but we do not have international phone plans, so we could not make the reservation ourselves. He had nowhere for us to sleep. Then he had us wait for his SATA associate to help us, and he put us on a flight to PDL the next day, but it was not direct! We had plans for the following day, a hotel reservation in Ponta Delgada that is NOT refundable, and now the final portion of our honeymoon is ruined. No one ever offered to give us vouchers for ANY costs or for the anxiety and total of 14 hours lost on the most important trip of our lives. Shameful."
Pros: "My husband has a mobility scooter and they handled it better than American Airlines and we flew first class!!!"
Cons: "This survey is useless. Keeps putting things wrongly and drops things"
Pros: "Excellent attention by the crew and the food."
Pros: "Good and entertainment options in executive class."
Cons: "Flight departed LIS late due to a couple of passengers. Definetly not the airline’s fault."
Cons: "We had to pay $200 each way to check in a luggage and just pick regular seats. That was not clear when we bought tickets. Additionally, they don't announce the gate until 30min before boarding. If you're going through passport control that can be a 45min process. On top of that even though I paid $100 to reserve seats, when we arrived at the gate the seats we reserved weren't reserved. Why did I just pay $100?! Luckily I had receipts. Our connecting flight was delayed 4 hours, making our layover 7 hours! For an hour flight. This is the worst airline."
Cons: "We left 45 minutes late for a 3 am flight. In the middle of the night the priority is sleeping but we were awakened for food service at 5 am. Worst breakfast I’ve ever had too."
Cons: "THE PROBLEM IS THE SAME: WE PAID AN EXTRA CHARGE FOR LUGGAGES, HOWEVER WE HAD A NORMAL TICKET THAT INCLUDED THE PRICE. TRY TO PROVIDE THE MONEY BACK!"
Pros: "Very friendly personnel at gate."
Cons: "Arrogant crew. Hid in galley behind curtain for most of the flight. For several hours not even the offer of a cup of water! No possibility to charge electronics in economy class. Charge of $ 75.00 for first bag on an international flight?!? We're not talking about a budget airline, but THE airline of Portugal!"
Cons: "Boarding was refused at gate due to late arrival of previous flight which was also a TAP flight. No assistance to delay following flight or accelerate our deplaning even though the next identical flight was three days later."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and great!"
Cons: "TVs did not work, no sound/frozen on games"
Pros: "Ability to see a bit of Lisbon on the way"
Cons: "Baggage charges that were not shown anywhere on the website. A nasty surprise when we checked luggage. Lost wallet on plane and customer service was unhelpful."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Entertainment. Small spaces."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "It was hot in the cabin. The lights were turned on and off without an announcement and without much time to sleep."
Pros: "Smooth and organized boarding process. Layover is a great option to explore lisbon."
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Decent staff on the plane"
Cons: "Could not move my seat the plane was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The food in Economy was way better than usual U.S. airline food. Ground staff in Newark were helpful in retrieving a book I left on the plane. Captain had the seat belt sign off early and turned it back on late in descent which allowed people to visit the restrooms. Video entertainment was good."
Cons: "Captain should have made more P.A. announcements during the coast in over Cape Cod to point out areas of interest"
Pros: "The crew was great and very kind; the pilot informed us a couple of times of where we were and how long to the destination; we arrived 10 minutes ahed of time! A perfect flight!"
Cons: "Their 11 hours flight converted to 2 days flight with long waiting time between the flights. They also lost my baggage and there was no organization process in the airport as well as they couldn't resolve any problems related to their flight."
Pros: "The flights was conducted safely and professionally."
Cons: "Minimal legeoom on the Airbus A319; several inches less than on the next TAP leg to BCN."
Pros: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Pros: "El personal amable."
Cons: "La calidad del entretenimiento, pésimo. Calidad de sonido y video. Los asientos no tiene para cargar los aparatos. Adicionalmente, no llego un paquete que embarcamos en Madrid con conexión en Lisboa."
Pros: "The service they provided us reminded us of how airlines used to treat their customers in the past. Meals were provided as was entertainment (there were individual tv screens for us to watch movies on) all for no additional cost to us. From the customer service to the services provided and the legroom on the flight -- everything was more than what we expected and we would consider flying TAP Portugal again."
Pros: "The crew was fine. Plane clean and comfortable. Would fly again."
Cons: "Agent at the gate wouldn't let me do a medical pre-board. When I checked it, the ticket agent said it wouldn't be a problem, I should just ask at the gate. The agent there said there would be no reason to board early even though I have a doctor's note. She said I could board with everyone else and was extremely rude and dismissive. Thank goodness the ticket agent helped me out (by putting me in a seat where I'd be first to board), but if he hadn't, it would have been a terrible experience."
Pros: "The plane was clean. The blanket was unusually large, for a plane blanket, so u could be nice and warm. The food was good and varied. The staff was friendly and every time they spoke to you had a smile on their face, as if happy to see you:)"
Cons: "I cant think of anything. It's a long trip that can be tiresome. So you can tell the airline tries to make it as pleasant as possible ."
Pros: "Short flight & delayed departure, but arrived in time to make our connection. Crew helpful."
Cons: "Madrid Airport security check opened all carry-on baggage and containers with medications."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Ask persons for veg or non veg snacks before u served please."
Pros: "Nice flight, clean planes, decent amount of beverages/food provided, good TVs"
Pros: "Left late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule. Seat was large and comfortable. All personnel were efficient, helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Did not like the food. One small, not so good tuna sandwich. Ugh!!!"
Pros: "Nice new plane, lie flat beds, great value for the price"
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing! So friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding process was a complete disaster! No apologies for the late departure and arrival."
Cons: "Didn't take this flight because it was late and would have caused me to miss my connection. I got rebooked on a different flight that delayed me 10+ hours."
Cons: "Way to small seating area"
Pros: "I like that the pilot to managed to take off in the snowy conditions and arrived our destination LA our time. The crew was amicable. That was it really."
Cons: "I felt the plane was not very comfortable for a 5 1/2hr flight. I will not fly this plane never on transatlantic it just not cozy like big airbus or b777. Air Canada should invest in big planes if it want to cash out on the passengers connecting their pacific flights."
Cons: "Movie app required, but not compatible with laptop. Seats were worn. Could not complete work tasks as no internet available."
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."
Cons: "Took 3 hours to get our drinks. Completely out of inventory with food and snacks. Very hot on the plane . WiFi didn’t work/ they charged for headphones which i haven’t even heard of. My tray table was completely crooked , i had to place my drinks on my husbands table. Overall, just terrible."
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."
Cons: "The train at Chicago airport was broken. I walked to get the next gate to the other terminal."
Pros: "Many airlines have code share flights but it is better to buy ticket directly from the original airline as they keep on ignoring the code share flight bookings"
Cons: "Till last moment we were kept hanging if we will board or not as no seat number was allocated. I believe it was as we were from the code share airline not the real one"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "The seats were tired and worn out. I could literally feel the metal bar in my back. They moved the magazines up to above the tray table and took the extra inch out. If there is an accident we are all going to eat magazines. I would rather deal with TSA than Air Canada"
Cons: "Small seating"
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "We paid extra for bulkhead seats at the front of economy. One of the stewards working in business class repeatedly came to get something out if the compartment over my head. The noise woke me up over and over. I finally asked him what he was getting and he told me it was his lunch! Irritating."
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: "Same as above"
Cons: "Immigration was painfully slow and why getting checked again when just coming from another plane? wait time for luggage far too long seems an airport issue same movies"
Cons: "It was delayed by 24 minutes."
Cons: "No entertainment and poor seat selection process"
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: "My flight from Orlando to Montreal was comfortable and convenient. Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "The overhead bins were surprisingly small so take that into consideration when packing your carry on. Staff was tolerable but not particularly polite or welcoming."
Pros: "The process was ridiculous to get booked for a flight that morrow and get to hotel"
Pros: "There are thousands of national brands that are kosher. It's not difficult to find products that all passengers can enjoy."
Cons: "Lost suitcase"
Pros: "Friendly attendants made up for the defective entertainment system."
Pros: "Smooth, great crew"
Cons: "Nothing, it was great"
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: "The boarding process was quick and the crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The only problem I had on the flight occurred in Cincinnati when my wife got lectured that her bag weighed to much for plane side check-in. The baggage handlers at CVG were rather rude."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No leg room, no snack for a 5+ hour flight, a bit messy, no entertainment, not too comfortable"
Pros: "Airplane features like the comfortable seating, leg room and window dimming capability. Head rest entertainment center and Flight Info graphics were great."
Cons: "Overall the crew seemed bored and tired with their job. On-board announcements sounded disinterested, and crew seemed tight and not overly pleasant."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Economy seating is no longer designed to fit any passenger who is even slightly above average height."
Pros: "Friendly airport and flight attendants. Ease of checkin."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment console was fast and responsive. There were many movies to choose from. Cabin crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats were, as usual, cramped. Not enough food was served."
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: "The crew was excellent with helping everyone and answering peoples questions."
Cons: "I had a 2 year old with me and boarded early. The flight was already delayed and more delays after everyone was aboard due to cargo not being on. I found this shocking for a red eye flight. This caused me to miss my connecting flight and having to wait 4 hours for the next flight with a 2 year old. our TV's seemed to skip even after they rebooted them so I wasn't even able to enjoy a movie or play any games."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
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: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was not as good as american carriers and there were no movies. Also, no one told us that we would have to retrieve our bags and put them on belt so we had to go through line twice"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, plenty of overhead space for suitcase despite being the last boarding group"

Pros: "arrived 15 early crew was very efficient & nice"
Cons: "plane was older 767-300 older version still comfortable but lot less then the newer airbus 330 on my yvr to yul"
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."
