Cons: "not so much."
Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."
Cons: "Everything ok"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"
Cons: "I enjoyed their meal and services wanted to be Oliver Twist"
Pros: "Good service!! Good food!! Great staff!!"
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. Ihad to"
Pros: "Cabin crews were politie"
Cons: "Waiting area outside gate was crowded and slow service, plane take off was delayed Plane wasnt clean enough food wasnt good taste horrible"
Cons: "The food options was bad...during my trip asked for certain meal they claim that they are out of it. I also did not like how they check you into room in Doha & Chennai way before boarding time that time could have used for shopping instead of sitting in the room."
Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "I was not given any option regarding the change of my departure flight from Colombo. Originally it was scheduled for 13th 3.25AM and it was brought forward to 12th night 20.20. This caused inconvenience to me and my family to wait 7 hours for the connecting flight to Johannesburg from Doha. When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hrs"
Pros: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"

Pros: "Very organized, helpful staff, they also provide lots of entertainment and food"
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable and the staff are friendly"
Pros: "Although I felt Qatar responded poorly to the cancelled flight, the actual flying experience was wonderful and made me forget about the extreme inconvenience and poor customer service regarding the cancelled flight."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled ten minutes before boarding. Workers gathered phone numbers and told us they would call to direct us a new flight. However, no calls were ever made. I had to call the airline multiple times to get an answer about a new flight. In my first call, the customer service was rude. There was also zero compensation for the inconvenience."
Pros: "its a five stars trip in its services"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Pros: "Everything, great airlineevrething"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg space and overall ambience of the cabin."
Cons: "I pre ordered Hindu meal. The meal selection by the airline was same from Karachi-Doha and Doha-Chicago. There was no choice of menu in the meal on such a long flight. Moreover taste of offered food was not satisfactory."
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."
Pros: "Could have done without the awful sexist ads they play on in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."

Pros: "I can understand what kind of flight it was because it was a small plane"
Cons: "Bad smells and an old plane i hope you will change the plane to another better one"
Pros: "ALMOST EVERTHING"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Food was really bad might as well have junk food."
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Considering my travel experience with Qatar & middle eastern airlines they've gone worst. The aircrafts need to be upgraded especially on long flights. Food was horrible and so was the entertainment. Would not recommend or fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the entertainment system needs more content, the food could use more variety. I would definitely travel with them again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Pros: "Qatar Airlines was amazing food was great and the flight attendants catered to passenger needs."
Pros: "Nothing. There was no flight. The flight was cancelled and you did not notify us. We found it out ourselves by accident. We tried to contact you guys but we could not call or anything other. You guys suck"

Cons: "The food was mediocre and the selection of movies was very limited."
Pros: "Great organization, very efficient"
Cons: "Bag fees were not made clear on Kayak or Swiss website, seats on Edelweiss A320 we’re spaced too close together for my legs, though was not a problem on the 777."

Cons: "I was very happy with my flight experience with Swiss."
Pros: "Crew is great."

Cons: "The flight attendant not wearing perfume. Food was very poor to say the least."

Pros: "Full array of entertainment."

Cons: "I'm not a terribly large person, but there is zero room in economy. When the person in front of me put her seat back the screen was literally 6 inches from my face."
Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."
Pros: "I was gratified to see that the 777 Boeing aircraft have now replaced the older Airbus aircraft..... This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."
Cons: "I had no complaints except that there was a 40+ minute delay in receiving our checked baggage..... this could have been a problem With the airport ground crew at Zurich airport ....."
Cons: "2 hours delay!"
Pros: "The seats would recline too far so that people behind would get their range of motion uncomfortably limited."
Pros: "The Boeing 777-300ER is ether new and clean."
Cons: "Seating was super tight. Once the person in front of me declined their seat the screen of the inflight entertainment system was right in front of my nose (no, my nose is not particularly long). I’ll consider flying Lufthansa or United next time - even if It required a stopover in Frankfurt or Munich."
Pros: "Families with small children can board with first class passengers. The staff member who checked us in greeted my son by his name at the plane door!"
Cons: "Some flight attendants were not attentive to service."
Pros: "The seat is designed beautifully. Staff and crew incredibly nice."

Cons: "Seat too small, no room, will never fly Swiss again. This was an 11 hour flight and I need more space and comfort."
Pros: "seat too tight"
Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."
Cons: "Old plane, hard uncomfortable seats, no wifi, rigid flight attendants, awful food, middle seat (after paying for premium seating) with two enormous guys on either side, fixed armrest, AC dripped on me most of the flight and was told nothing could be done, interminable."

Cons: "Seat rows were too close together and seats were uncomfortable for the 11 hour flight."
Pros: "super nice crew-really friendly, accommodating, happy, all that sort of thing. really liked them and they're awesome!!"
Cons: "i am a regular sized woman, size 8, and a bit tall 5'9" and the seat felt wayyyy to small for me. couldn't put my hands naturally by my sides and the arm rests were too high to be comfortable, so i had to sit there with my shoulders held up the entire flight. was so sore afterwards!! also, the headphones barely worked (only one side, on the replacement as well!) and the entertainment system shut down twice."
Pros: "Jennifer - Appreciate the security and follow-up"
Cons: "Not the traveler will need to get boarding, crew, comfort, food and entertainment next week."
Pros: "Service was nice. Food was decent."
Cons: "The flight attendants did not have much in the way of personalities. Efficient, but no sparkle."
Cons: "Food was marginal, the service. Was pretty good. I'd use them again, but expected more from a European carrier."
Pros: "Clean. Elegant. Modern. Very friendly. Food above average."
Cons: "It's always very hard to upgrade to business class. And the Swiss Miles & More website is not very user friendly to navigate"
Pros: "Enjoyed the service"
Cons: "The seats were really hard for a 12 hour flight and not enough leg room."
Cons: "It was full, Ben if Lufthansa said on their website that they keep physical distance for passangers! Liars!"
Cons: "Lost one of my luggages"
Cons: "Delayed over 4 hrs, missed connecting flight as we were supposed to meet with in Frankfurt. Spent hrs getting a new itinerary, one bag never showed up in Nairobi."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Length of flight (out of Lufthansa's control, of course), temperature (a little too cold), food carts hitting people."

Pros: "Overall great and on time !"
Cons: "Delayed in Munich an hour late"
Pros: "Boarding was great. Easy. Fast"
Cons: "Seat was cramped. Blanket was inferior."
Cons: "Was assigned worst seat on plane. Engine vibration on seat back"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost 6 of our bags and left us with no information or compensation. I sent them emails but there is no response from customer service. Costed us $500 to buy things on emergency basis for our family and they delivered the bags after 2 days. This was very unprofessional and Lufthansa has to pay for it. Can you please help. Next time we will certainly have to avoid The airline as their gate transfer in Frankfurt is horrible with very rude security staff who has no interest helping our family to board the flight on tight connection. Instead the person decided to go on his break right when we were at the X-ray screening. How rude and unthoughtful."
Cons: "I haven’t received my luggage and I have been in Mumbai for almost 3 days!!! I have to buy new clothes and plenty of toiletries, I have only had 1 phone call from the airline to tell me my bags never left SFO!!! Wtf!"
Pros: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."

Cons: "One crew member oversaw me several times when distributing beverages because the gentlemen next to me ordered two, and she assumed he's ordering for me (which he didn't). She explained herself, but didn't apologize but made it sound like it was my fault. When I ordered 2 beverages (wine and water), she said she doesn't have time to hand out two beverages to each passenger."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "All of it"
Pros: "Very nice personals, I'm so happy."
Cons: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and I liked that they always kept us hydrated with drinks. Before I even left on the trip I called the airlines several time with so many questions and the staff that I talked to each time were so friendly and helpful with all the questions that I had."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like is that the boarding process was different than what I was used to. I usually board by zones and this time it was more of a everyone got up at the same time and everyone rushed to the front of the lines and some people would push me out of the way to get in front. ( even though we all had assigned seating) Second thing was that I had asked for a wheelchair for my mom and I had seen one waiting outside and was about to walk up to it but another person was limping up to it and put her stuff down on it so I didn't know if it was for my mom or her. I didn't have the heart to go up and make her move if the wheelchair was for my mom so we ended up walking the whole way to customs. I felt bad for my mom afterwards because her knees ended up hurting by the time we got to customs. I would suggest holding up signs of individual names for who the wheelchair is for. Other than that everything was great"
Cons: "Didn't happen yet."
Pros: "Great overall experience oafter some years of absence using other major carriers"
Cons: "All bathroom downstairs, crammed stairs long long waiting , no room to wait for your turn"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"
Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Cons: "2.5 h delay"
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process and tarmac delays consumed the already inadequate prospective layover in Chicago."
Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"
Pros: "TV service"
Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was very nice except for the exceptionally tiny and narrow seats."
Cons: "Tiny, narrow seats."
Cons: "the monitor at my seat did not work and I could not watch any movie. Everything else was fine."
Pros: "first time in the new economy plus, was a pretty good experience-- food comfort, etc."
Cons: "Filght cancelled"
Pros: "Efficiency, courtesy, professionalism."
Pros: "They put us in a hotel."
Cons: "I lost my trip to Venice and almost didn't make my cruise ship. Lost $300 non refundable room deposit. Nothing more than an "I'm sorry." from Lufthansa. I'll never fly them again."
Pros: "no complaints, everything went well."
Cons: "They sit us at row with 3 TVs and in order to watch we need to watch for 12 hours curved for 45 degrees. Please try to do this your self."
Pros: "Seating, Staff,"
Cons: "Would have liked smoother boarding and more live TV choices"
Cons: "Boarding system was chaotic. Not enough space for all people, so many had to stand near the boarding area, which meant those who were called to board had to push through many people. The chaos meant that is added stress to personnel trying to board people in a calm and effective manner and had to shout loud to get the right people to board at the right time. Just an overall unpleasant experience. I was glad when I finally got on the plane"
Pros: "Excellent service newer plane check in was a breez entertainment on plane was some of the best we have seen in a long time overall a 5 star experience."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly- no delays."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "I'm still at Heathrow 12 hours later. I never made it to Oslo."
Pros: "Love the A380 it’s smoothness quietness and spaciousness. The experienced mature crew were excellent."
Cons: "Food quality and selection. I"
Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"
Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Also even when you buy a business class ticket British Airways makes you pay to reserve a seat in advance if you don’t have status with them. That feels over the top for a premium customer."
Pros: "The free drinks."
Cons: "The stink of curry throughout the plane and the other choices of meal being gluten laden pasta and gluten laden crackers, muffins, and bread for breakfast. I am very glad I ate in SFO before leaving or I’d have been starving by the time e arrived in LHR."
Pros: "Not much - inflated BA fare for mediocre offering; definitely not business class when compared to proper premium airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Poor food. Disorganized boarding more soon to low cost budget carriers. Which is what BA competes against now, albeit for premium prices."
Pros: "Boarding staff & crew were fine"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable I have ever travelled in - this plane definitely has the worst seat width, leg & reclining space that I have seen. I have been in long-range (16 hours) flights that were more comfortable than this. If anything fell on the floor, I couldn't retrieve, I couldn't sleep at all & had contorted joints & a body ache when we landed. To design such tiny seats is truly inhumane."
Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "That I got to London..."
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for two hours because of engine issues, and there is no air in coach in their planes. It was 90 degrees in there! For two hours! The other classes had air and we had none, it was a health violation for sure."
Pros: "Good entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "This was a very full flight and the crew were exceptionally patient with everyone. Much appreciated."

Cons: "They lost our bags. Many of us on board. And they didn’t give us tracking numbers to follow-up. Argh"
Pros: "wonderful crew, good enough food, wide entertainment, seats as good as can be expected, great plane, great flight, great crew, on time and safe and arrived in good spitrits"
Cons: "as always, rather crowded, seats rather tight,"
Pros: "I like that we didn't crash"
Cons: "They lost my and 5 other persons luggage! British Airways sucks!"
Cons: "Cold coffee."
Pros: "Only one layover in London"
Cons: "Emirates, Etihad flights I thought were a bit newer and better in terms of comfort and entertainment with more charging ports etc"
Pros: "Crew were good , food was ok."
Cons: "Flight delayed again so both flights to USA and return were delayed... not a great experience . Entertainment took a cou0le of hours to sort, they had to keep resetting it"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, there was entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, no specific lines, etc."
Cons: "horrible seating"
Cons: "The screen was pretty big but quality pretty bad. Looked like 80s CRT. Also bad selection. Luckily it was a red eye flight."
Pros: "Quality service."
Cons: "Vegetarian dinner of pasta was uninteresting. The Indian meal in the other direction was much better."
Pros: "I love the bins by the side of the Airbus, and for an economy seat there was a good amount of leg room."
Pros: "Went by quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "More music choices would have been nice."
Cons: "Seats are ver very bad no good food no good Sevres"
Pros: "We nisssed it due to British airways ineptitudeeverythubg"
Pros: "Plane captain very informative"
Cons: "Airport ground staff very unhelpful"
Pros: "Storage bins next to seat in world traveller plus"
Cons: "Lack of seinking water and no toilet in the world traveller plus cabin - curtains divided off the area blocking access to any toilets!"
Cons: "More legroom would have been nice"
Pros: "Checking in online 24 hours prior to departure I received up-dates thrice regarding the delay of the flight which was very convenient. I had also learned about the protections that I enjoy as a passenger checking in online. The flight caught up in terms of timing as I had to catch a connecting flight to the continent from London. I was very pleased, also with the courteous flight attendents, the food, the entertainment selection and sufficient leg room in economy class. Overall a lovely experience, indeed!"
Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."
Pros: "Easy online Check in. Nice crew."
Cons: "Very tight space on flights."
Pros: "All great"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Seat too small. No free wifi in the XXI century? !!!"
Pros: "Pleasant check in process. Long layover tags put on our checked bags On time"
Pros: "The connecting flight got canceled and 24 hours latter we are still in the airport trying to get to our final destination."
Cons: "We rebooked our flight to another flight firvthe following day and that one got canceled too. They have not returned our luggage yet. They said within a week we'll get our luggage. The worst company on the planet. Do not fly them. Our vacation has turned into a nightmare. We had to repurchase tickets with a different company so we can get to our final destination. We don't know if we'll get reimbursed for any portion of this."
Cons: "Wish water had been available For free London to Framkfurt"
Cons: "On time and good staff"
Pros: "Pleasant, efficient and knowledgable staff."
Cons: "BA staff at SFO lounge have declared UDI and do not allow Gold Card holders into 1st class lounge"
Pros: "First time I enjoy flying , everything was very good"
Pros: "The overall experience was very good from the angle of clean toilets, food and good leg space even in economy class."
Pros: "BA's customer service was excellent and they helped us out by getting on the next plane with minimal delay ... By 4 hours."
Cons: "I was told a 2 hour transit time would be sufficient but when we arrived in London, we had to go through several gates with long lines at Terminal 5. I was leary that this was achievable without the long lines but on this day, we couldn't even get past the first gate before they told us that we will miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "What happened to physical distancing? Flight was packed full."
Cons: "They should provide headphones to use the entertainment system."
Pros: "There was one crew member was passive aggresive and doing his best to annoy the whole trip, I had to get other crew involved, he was hitting on my friend as well....."
Cons: "This was a United flight sold as Air Canada to me and Lufthansa to my friend. This made check in twice as long since we went to the wrong counters. The quality was horrendous for an international flight and the entertainment system was broken. I paid atleast 50% more than I should have. Never fly UA"
Pros: "Customer service from SFO to YVR. The BNE to YVR customer service wasn’t good when I came, particularly from the Brisbane airport staff, but going back, it was great."
Cons: "Better food, otherwise good"
Pros: "Plane landed at 1511, at Gate at 1525 (a bit slow), I'm through customs (only 50 people in line?!) and at the baggage carousel at 1535 (long legs) and my bag is already there waiting for me!! I'm outside having a smoke at 1538! How do they do it?"
Pros: "Very little. The staff is polite but they have no information and really are not empowered they solve any problems"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour taking off due to final checks and luggage. In sprite of the pilot announcing smooth sky’s we had terbulence and seatbelts on for 60% of the flight. And when we arrived the luggage of at least 15 passengers, including mine, did not arrive. After waiting 45 minutes at the carousel for the luggage and another 35 at the priority desk I was informed that the luggage was not coming on the next flight but the next day. They apparently had run out of overnight bags so I had to buy a toothbrush and a t-shirt at the airport to sleep in. Now normally I would pack a carry on with the basic essentials for such a situation but this was a direct fight with 3 follow flights to the same destination..... I have no idea who votes for Air Canada or how many votes it takes to win the awards they keep claiming but there is something wrong..."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."
Cons: "My dad didn’t get on the plane because the previous one was late"
Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."
Pros: "Left 30 minutes late but made up time and arrived roughly 5 minutes off original time. Ample leg room in coach. Nobody in the seats in front. Crew pleasant. Quiet ride."
Cons: "People behind coughing/sneezing all the way."
Cons: "waiting so long for baggage"
Cons: "That had to be the most cramped, uncomfortable airplane seat I have ever been in. And the coffee was awful."
Pros: "Ease of checking in, timely announcements and updates. Smooth ride"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "We're Not Satisfied With Our Seat From SFO TO YVR"
Cons: "My bag did not arrive at the same time I did. It was delivered several days later. I had to buy new clothes with my own money while I waited. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The plane was spacious with comfortable seats. Entertainment selections were a highlight. I liked that they offered your buds. Not nearly as bad as United despite some customer service issues."
Cons: "Our tables were dirty so we could not set our drinks and food on them. When we were boarding, one of the crew members was yelling at an older Asian lady. She was in the wrong seat but she obviously did not speak English. She was also of the age where she could have had dementia. He said that she was responsible for holding up the plane and the boarding process. On the return flight, I encountered a very rude boarding agent. Her actions warranted an apology, but I did not receive one. She just would not look at me."
Pros: "Good movies, had gluten free snack choices, so important"
Cons: "Would LOVE closed captioning ability on the movie screens."
Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."
Cons: "Quality of food vs price"
Cons: "staff did not meet the plane because they were not organized."
Cons: "The connection process at YYZ airport. You need to clear security twice in order to connect. Risk of missing flights got connection because the walk to terminal is long and security checkpoint is very inefficient and sllw"
Pros: "The crew at the airport terminal were very helpful."
Pros: "The lady at the counter was very pleasant when she realized my dad had forgotten his wallet and offered him to put him on next flight if I didn't make it back in time with his wallet, I liked how she had made him feel better by showing him grace and mercy that his mistake was fixable."
Cons: "At SFO it is always a mess when you take a flight because you can either be in International terminal - that would be logical, since this is a us Canada flight but at other times you need to go to the united ticket counter instead (even though I get sent between the counters often I can't remember if this is terminal 3) - The lady in line was trying to get my dad to leave this line to go to the other counter line without asking about his specific flight, it caused an argument in my travel party because they thought she was right and I insisted we stay in this line. The lady didn't even acknowledge what I was trying to say and kept telling my dad to go to the other terminal when we were at the correct one. There is nobody that can seem to tell you which terminal to go to prior to arriving at the airport so it doesn't help when someone provides misinformation at the airport while in line. Travel can already Be stressful."
Cons: "The huge line up going through customs"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Air Canada pricing is same as other non budget airlines like British airways, Lufthansa but service is on par with budget airlines like Ryan Air. I'm amazed how they get away with it."
Cons: "Gate 91 was allocated on boarding pass. It was switched to 95 Android did not inform anyone of the 10 pax waiting at gate 91. We were informed by one of the passenger that went to figuer out how Come that only 10 pax waiting at gate 91"
Cons: "The amount of hand luggage taken on board is getting totally out of hand people are boarding with two or three huge bags."
Pros: "Ability to charge my iPhone )"
Pros: "Good organized"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Was supposed to leave 5:15 pm but did leave until 9:30 pm. They could have given us a more accurate time so we could have not gone to the airport so early instead of saying 45 minute delay and then 1 hour and then constantly delaying it to 4 hours. Nothing was offered in compensation."
Cons: "I was annoyed to find that Air Canada has invented special terminology to justify charging for a single checked bag on an international flight. At the check in counter, the representative explained to me that Canada is "trans border" and not "international," so they don't offer a free checked bag. However, I was still required to present my passport and go through customs, and I'm pretty sure I came out of the plane in a different country than I started in, so I conclude that they are splitting hairs to cheat customers out of a standard service."
Cons: "No food when they got to back row and we were starving. No apology and no alternate offers. Also my two yr old boy was about to fall asleep and every time the crew member switched on their reading light and walked away. I had to turn them off. Worst experience on an Air Canada flight."
Cons: "Lost our bags for 3days"
Cons: "We had a hard time reserving seats in advance"
Pros: "Landing and take off"
Cons: "The fact that we couldn't get seating assignment until last minute"
Pros: "Everything and I have alot if air miles under me.The flight crew was great. The aircraft was great."
Cons: "The food could have Ben a little been a little better."
Cons: "No snack."

Pros: "I liked the comfort and the service"
Cons: "the long delay in Montreal"
Pros: "Check in and boarding process ok."
Cons: "Had to buy meal on the SFO-Montreal leg, which was at the snack/wrap level. Constraint space seats."
Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"
Cons: "Love it"
Pros: "Very nice people, seats large enough"
Cons: "impossible to work on my computer, plug without enough power turn off automatically"
Cons: "2hrs delayed and no explanation the reason. So my arrival time in Toranto 2am instead of 10:45pm."
Pros: "Free TV."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Guy behind me was loud and kept kicking/pushing my seat."
