Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Direct from SJC, not crowded"
Cons: "Guy in front of me was reclined whole time and very little room like that."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Cons: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"

Cons: "It's nice to have digital magazines now of Lufthansa flights, but I am not sure why there are hundreds of movies but only ONE magazine to chose from."
Pros: "The food was pretty decent."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. The plane was old. No entertainment. For the money look elsewhere."
Pros: "Cabin was clean"
Cons: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."
Pros: "Staff were nice and friendly."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The seatback was not clean, and the tray table was stained. The 9-hour flight did not have any USB ports or outlets for charging. The touchscreen did not work well, and my seat would not move forward or back without me pushing or pulling it. This"
Pros: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Cons: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Food use to be better"
Pros: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."

Pros: "Very nice personals, I'm so happy."
Cons: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."

Pros: "Once onboard the flight was excellent and trouble-free. The crew were efficient and pleasant to passengers. I must give a big credit to Lufthansa for its great on-board entertainment system and good quality screens."
Cons: "Boarding in San Jose: For the first time I saw a Lufthansa person physically checking the weight of cabin backage at the gate. This was was not very pleasant experience as he approached us asking questions why we had so much cabin baggage, when our children were in bathroom and assumed me and my wife had 4 pieces of baggage, when we had 1 each and then left without apologising."

Pros: "The plane was parked away from the gate. We boarded the service bus to get there 20 minutes before departure time. But it took more than 20 minutes while mid way waiting for clearance to leave for the plane. The service bus did not turn on the AC while we waited even though we complained. We were suffocating.

Cons: "2.5 h delay"
Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"
Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Cons: "Very cramped seat on the TGV train. I will definitely choose and pay a seat on my own next time, rather than accepting the on picked by Air France... And it will be cheaper, too!"
Pros: "Polite and friendly service"
Cons: "Not necessary to buy a business class ticket, as all the new planes have standard economy seats in the front as well."

Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."
Pros: "The schedule and timing"
Cons: "The airport, some of the crew, the aircraft seats, the entertainment system"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight snd kindness of the crew."
Cons: "My connecting flight to san francisco was through Delta, which it was on a different terminal, I had to carry my luggage out of the airport in order to get to delta’s terminal - the buildings are not connected."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."
Pros: "Intranet wifi meant I could watch entertainment on my iPad"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "make passengers from Nigeria to feel respected and important. Imagine no entertainment in the aircraft in addition to a very poor food."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."
Pros: "Crew was nice movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was late which caused a 5 hour layover in Paris CDG. Food not very good. Entertainment system clumsy to operate."

Cons: "The seat padding is rather thin."
Cons: "I ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. But they served me only pasta."
Cons: "Because of change in plane..bad choice of seat for long legs of husband...then late in Atlanta and very late into DC"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Cons: "I will not use o recommend to anyone to buy a ticket with the agency, at the airport in China we were treated like criminals because as they said we were not register in the system as passengers it was really a nightmare"
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."
Pros: "Enjoyed my food, especially tasty for airplan fare!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Cons: "Staff where so unhelpful that I missed my flight and then refused to offer any assistance as to how I could remedy this situation. This cost me over €180 which is a weeks food and stay for me. Don't fly with these guys or with air Croatia."
Pros: "It was ok fligh"
Cons: "Food was not so good"
Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Pros: "Staff pleasant and courteous fine meal and beverages! Arrived ahead of schedule in Bucharest!! Overall a very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "Plenty of seat space"
Cons: "In flight entertainment and call button was broken ... crew never passes to ask if you’d like water."

Cons: "See above and the food was disgusting"
Pros: "Super fast boarding and smooth takeoff"
Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Speed, courtesy of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit rough, understandable due to the weather."
Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Pros: "full Meal service in coach , customer service , free wine , personal entertainment, power outlets , everything !"
Cons: "Bottom seat cushions could be a little more comfortable ."
Pros: "Being able to have my meal at the airport before my flight so that I could sleep in comfort."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Cons: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Pros: "Efficient check-in."
Cons: "It was raining in Prague so I can understand that luggage is going to get wet. But when we opened our luggage at least half of our clothes were wet. It would seem that the luggage sat out for quite a while prior to departure for that much soaking of clothes. Fortunately we are staying in Paris for a few days and can get our clothes dried out."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."
Pros: "movies were good, crew was great. Comfy seats. It was really as nice as an economy flight could be."
Cons: "delayed flight, hot overall plane, personal TV malfunctioned a lot"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Interesting hot food. Entertainment variety very good."
Cons: "Business class seats hard. Did not flatten out for sleep."
Pros: "It was great."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were tight"
Cons: "This was not a low cost flight such as Ryan Air, etc. I expect British Airways to provide at least complimentary water, which they did not! Come on! For $240 per ticket you could at least offer a free glass of water and a pack of peanuts."
Pros: "The crew was mediocre, nothing special. I asked for a extra pillow and was denied. Seats were cramped, I expected more from British Airways but comparing them to China Eastern, I found China Eastern more memorable."
Cons: "I expected more from British Airlines, maybe my expectations and reality didn’t chive?"
Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."
Pros: "Moving to window seat appreciated"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Boarding and the flight itself were uneventful. Departure slightly early and arrival consequently early too."
Cons: "Paying for simple tea or coffee? I know a profit needs to be made but come on! I was missed completely by the cabin service the first time, and had to ask for tea on the second. I don’t know when they started charging for tea, but it was unwelcome, cool, and not particularly refreshing. I expect better of BA."
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."
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Cons: "i was asked to pay to check in my luggage :("
Cons: "Daylight savings. Wrong time. Missed flight. $450 to rebook new one-way. What a nightmare!"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable"
Cons: "No complementary water on Baird."
Pros: "Snacks or water had to be purchased No in flight entertainment Crew not so nice"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Lots of movie options. I got a voucher due to the delay."
Cons: "The delay was a bit of a bummer and it would have been nice to be compensated with more than a voucher that couldn't be used in LHR because it was in USD. I also would have liked to been told they were still planning on serving dinner despite the midnight departure; I fell asleep because they turned off the cabin lights and I assumed the meals had shifted, but instead I missed out of my dinner. Lastly, I am quite petite and still struggled with legroom."
Pros: "Breakfast was tasty"
Cons: "Food choices not good for lunch/ dinner"
Pros: "This was a very full flight and the crew were exceptionally patient with everyone. Much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are not too comfortable"
Cons: "Was told no soft drinks or water were included in flight. Had to pay if i wanted a water."
Pros: "We didn’t make the flight from London to Rome because of flight delays. there was a huge time delay with our plane sitting on at the terminal and unable to de-board due to scheduling errors. This delay prevented us from making our connection to our next flight and now we are staying in a mediocre hotel for the night and have to wake super early and miss a day of fun at our final desitination. In general I would just move on, but we heard the customer service agent reference that they over booked the two flights to Rome. I guess we were the u lucky customers x two flights because we didn’t get a standby seat in the next flight then the prior agent gave us positive hope that we would get on. Lesson- make sure you have at least 3 hours between connecting flights."
Cons: "Hearing that we were booked on an overbooked flight."
Pros: "Nice new plane. Spacey."
Cons: "Ba.com app is flaky. Looks like s/w not tested properly"
Cons: "BA 884 and BA 885 (a 3 hours flight!) had no water , coffee and food at all !!! PLEASE HELP US !!!"
Pros: "The Crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "It was a little cramped for space for my legs and I am not very tall."
Pros: "Fast boarding, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Have to pay for everything including coffee, tea or water. No entertainment at all"
Pros: "The crew of British airlines were nice"
Cons: "Changed flight , couldn’t check in. I bought ticked on kayak but vayama was the actual ticket seller on behalf of Iberia which is a British airlines company. I couldn’t check and and customer service of vayama didn’t want to help and asked me to call Iberia. I called Iberia and after staying on hold for 40 min they told me to use the same confirmation number of Iberia flight on British airlines website. After a long day and a long and expensive uber ride I made it to sfo to see the flight has been delayed... never ever ever going to buy an international flight from Iberia, and very hesitant about kayak redirecting sales."
Cons: "horrible seating"
Pros: "The entertainment was great. The food was enjoyable and happy to see they offer vegetarian choices. Overall great experience."
Pros: "I loved the side compartment next to my seat in the upper deck of the airbus. This was an amazing airplane to fly in and I hope someday to afford the opportunity to experience First class. The cabin crew was very attentive and our attendant, in particular, was helpful. He made sure that we had our special meal and the whole staff was very attentive."
Cons: "Food was dry for dinner and not very tasty. Breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "The price of the flight offers is what made me purchase through kayak, but the disconnect with the airline and booking agency left me stranded and ultimately required me to buy a flight directly that will take me almost half a year to pay off not to mention the inconvenience of switching airports and sleeping on a bench for 4hrs."
Cons: "When I missed my flight, the airline would not offer assistance because I booked through an online vendor (webjet through kayak) and when I called webjet they failed to help me rebook, made me buy a new flight, then when I called looking for the flight information, they managed to cancel the flight and then claimed I had requested this when I had done no such thing. On top of this they only offer next calendar day booking so even though they are fully responsible for botching up the second flight I booked. I have talked to 10 individuals from different agencies. Everyone passes blame and responsibility off on someone else. On top of everything else, noone but the American Airlines representatives showed any empathy or concern for my being stranded for the night. Based on this experience, I will do everything in my power to dissuade people from using Kayak, webjet, amadeus and British Airways."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Food cost was a surprise. No biggie, just glad I brought a snack"
Pros: "Large seats, fast service."
Pros: "Movie choices were great."
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal well before day of flight. They said they did not have my order. Thankfully there were still vegetarian options (and I was at back of plane)."
Pros: "Plane captain very informative"
Cons: "Airport ground staff very unhelpful"
Cons: "Air Lingus is awful! It had 1:20 hours delay that resulted in missing the second flight. The check in people don't know their job. The lady named Michelle in Dublin almost killed me with her lack of knowledge and slowness. The airplane was extremely dirty including diner tables, seats, and bathrooms. It is the worst airline that I ever flied with. In Dublin the check in and information desk of air lingus were awuful. Full of attitude and absolutely no knowledge."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"
Pros: "Flying in 787 is always a joy. Quiet; great movie and music selection; nice contemporary user interface."
Cons: "The seat legroom was not the worst I had but sleeping in the chair was somehow very hard. I think the seat needed a little more backward inclination. There was a headrest, which was a good idea but didn't work out as expected."
Pros: "Movie selection was great!"
Cons: "Short staffed. No coffee with breakfast! Cream and sugar on tray. Flight from London to Stockholm delayed one hour due to air traffic!"
Pros: "Comfort. Entertainment. Service. Comfort. Did i mention it was comfortable? Also dark. Very dark. Which is exactly what you need on a long flight. Food was also exceptionally good for an airline. The bathrooms were also clean and had nice sinks."
Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight"
Pros: "we got a 787 dreamliner, the coach seats had good space between rows, so we had enough legroom. food - dinner - was tasty, and breakfast was plain but was completely OK. entertainment was excellent, lots of new movies, and also older movies and TV programs. crew was courteous and very helpful, and boarding was quick and smooth. all in all, a very positive experience."
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."
Pros: "nice modern electronics"
Cons: "breakfast high in calories but very low in pleasure"
Pros: "Good service friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "Excellent service. Condition of the airplane"
Cons: "Boarding process a little chaotic."
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: "My luggage didn't make it to NY. Very upset about this because I have no idea when it will be delivered!"
Cons: "Cancellation with little notice and rebooked on flight two days later."
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Flight nearly on time. Good legroom."
Cons: "Food was so-so. Don’t like having to pay for a drink on an international flight costing $1000."
Pros: "It was comfortable..the food was plentiful, but the chicken wraps were like eating cardboard...ice cream a delight."
Cons: "The chicken wraps were almost unedible..."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived a bit early, excellent trip"
Pros: "Free soft drinks /tea On time nice staff Clean cabin well organized"
Cons: "No free food Completely booked. no video monitors"
Cons: "The plane are old. The over head bends are smaller than any plane built recently. The enteratianment system has issues and the headphone noise comes out blurred (I overheard other people having the same problem), the staff is rude, the food was awful, and I was late arriving on both flights (we never left on time)."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Sepeated seating with my wife"
Pros: "AC 018 takes the shortest route from Shanghai to Montreal. The check in and boarding were like a breeze. Cabin was clean, staff were amiable and hard working. The variety of drinks were plenty, the food matched the standard of cost efficiency flight ticket so how could you complain it? On board TV/Movie has new coming features such as HBO's Game of The Thorne, season 7. It was a comfortable and pleasant journey with the team of AC 018. Merci beaucoup!"
Cons: "delayes again....."
Cons: "There was only one staff working at the gate, and one family with kids seemed somehow stuck with their documents. This kept all other passengers,who had already Lined up, waiting for quite a while. Some people grew impatient."
Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"
Cons: "No video screens for entertainment. If you want to use in flight entertainment, you need to download the Air Canada app prior to boarding."
Cons: "Our luggage didn't scan in the system so we couldn't go to the gate until it was found & scanned in the system. Fortunately we were early so this wasn't an issue but kept us waiting at "step 2" until an actual photo could be found. We also had a delay after boarding while they changed a tire. It all worked out ok."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane were excellent."
Cons: "The wireless entertainment system is slow and glitchy and did not work on an older iPad. The food was subpar but by airline standards was middle of the road."
Pros: "My mother's attendants and the flight crew were very friendly and courteous to her."
Cons: "No information or communication about bringing your own food or snacks on board. No food, snacks,entertainment or immigration forms were available. There was some food for purchase but if you didn't have a credit or debit card then you couldn't buy it. My mother was in a wheelchair waiting to board in Toronto and would have bought food to either eat there or carry on the plane but another passenger was severely reprimanded for getting out of her wheelchair and going to the bathroom, so my mother was intimidated to stay seated and not go to the bathroom nor ask any questions as to if she could go and buy some food or snack to eat while she was waiting. Only juices were served. She was flying since 11 am and arrived at 9:30 pm without any food. The website as well as all emails should inform about luggage weight as well as food and entertainment. On a layover the attendants should be more cooperative with disabled passengers and allow them to use the bathroom as well as to go and buy food."
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Pros: "It's Vegas, what's not t like!"
Cons: "Plane ride home after 4 nights in Vegas..."
Pros: "They arrived on time. Not much else."
Cons: "Over 4 hour flight. No food (not even pretzels). A few old movies. Flight delay with no communication. I only noticed when I was checking in at the kiosk and noticed that my one hour layover was now a 5 minute layover. Rebooked. When I arrived at destination, no notice that next flight was delayed, even though it was over 3 hours late. Thought I only had 1 hour to go through US immigrations and customs. Ran to the other end of the airport to be on time. Aircraft wasn't even at airport and flight was over 3 hours late. They couldn't have posted that so we didn't have to run across the airport? Changed gates, but no announcement. One other flyer was looking at the board and called out to the group waiting that there was a gate change. Left Vancouver at 8:00 am, arrived in Boston at 1:30 am. Won't fly with Air Canada again."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "I was in a window seat and I asked for an aisle."
Cons: "Plane was too small with extra small overhead bin. Entertainment system was also mediocre which keep shutting down and have to again select your movie and forward it :("
Pros: "Can't really complain; a typical, good flying experience with Air Canada. They're the only ones that go direct between YYZ and SFO, so not much choice there, but their staff are always friendly and courteous, and usually the plane provides wifi (for a price), which makes the hours whiz by."
Cons: "There was a slight delay in boarding at SFO, but that was more due to the lateness of a different plane/airline, so not really Air Canada's fault."
Cons: "Boarding gate very small"
Pros: "The seats were generous. The crew was efficient. The flight was on time going but late returning due to fog which is not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "Sadly, it took 1.5 hours to check in at the Air Canada counter in St. Maarten. You could not do it online!!! It was a very long time to wait in line. Plus, we didn't have time to make any duty free purchases. Unfortunate."
Cons: "This is not an Air Canada flight, is a Rouge flight, meaning there is no service, no screens, not even blankets on board. I didn't know that until after confirming my reservation, and it makes all the difference. For a low cost flight, the service is ok, but it shouldn't be advertised as Air Canada at all."
Cons: "I was assigned a seat right at the back when I booked I selected a mid seat and did not get it."
Pros: "Take off was on time. Boarding was orderly and the flight an landing were smooth,"
Cons: "The closeness of the seats was unpleasant. For an early morning flight a cup of coffee or juice is not enough. a few crackers would have been welcome, especially since the stores open a little later."
Pros: "The flights were on time, the seats were roomy, checkin went smoothly."
Cons: "The tray tables were filthy, there was food left in the seat pockets. Also there looked like dog feces on the ramp leading to the plane."
Pros: "Everything went smooth no hitches at all people very nice"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "The head phone slot did not work. Then the TVs went out which did not matter because I could not listen to them anyway."
Pros: "Apart from food there was nothing great about the flight"
Cons: "The staff is the worst, the air hostesses are rude and treat you bad. The service is very poor."
Pros: "Flights left on-time. Leather seats reclined comfortably. Crew offered plenty of food & drink throughout the flight. I would definitely consider booking again with Air Canada"
Cons: "On the way back from Quebec City to Montreal we were asked to check our carry-ons as luggage, because "there is no room' on the plane. It was an empty flight. ALL overhead compartments were empty. Both flights - Quebec to Montreal and Montreal San Francisco were late. As the result, we have to spend 1.5 hours in the baggage claim area, because "there are no baggage agents in SFO available". THAT WAS THE WHOLE REASON WE ONLY HAD CARRY-ONS! By far, one of the worst flight experience in the last 10 year."
Cons: "Change of boarding gate at last minute, no food service in rear of plane due to turbulence however front of plane was served"
Pros: "I liked that I was switched to Japan airlines. Things went smoother from there"
Cons: "Didn't get to fly the day I was supposed to"
Pros: "On time, nice crew, decent leg room"
Cons: "Nothing much to eat if you are vegan or vegetarian."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, really lovely and chipper!"
Cons: "There were only pretzels as a food option and I have celiac disease so I'm allergic to gluten. You can't just have one food option stop skimping. ALSO - I was put on a standby list which is entirely unacceptable. I purchased my ticket, therefore I should have a seat on a flight. Luckily in the end I was printed a ticket, but being on standby was just bullshit. Totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Never thought Canada air is so bad in international air services. Would never use Canada Air for my international travel in the future."
Cons: "Bad food, worst attitude of crew combined with no entertainment in flight during almost 10 hours of flying time."
Pros: "On time, quick boarding, has an app, online checkin worked"
Pros: "the snacks were ok, and the in-flight entertainment was nice"
Cons: "I had a drink spilled on me with no apology, the staff was super duper rude, the flight did not take off on time and was late getting to the connecting airport. all around it was a total mess"
Cons: "They messed up my mobile checkin making me miss my flight and then had thenough nerve to try to make me pay a 80$ change fee to take the next flight that was 100$ cheaper than my original. Waiting for a refund! I had to take American Airlines home. I will never flying with them again!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable..."
Cons: "Plane windows were really dirt... staff was a bit rude..."
Cons: "If you have a stop in Canada - you must have Canadian visa! Which does not make any sense and no one warned me about that."
Pros: "Lack of services in Air Canada is disappointing. I asked for an iPad, which, i was asking to rent to watch a movie and no one got back to me."
Pros: "The passenger beside me was nice."
Cons: "Week long convention and showed up 2 hours early. Fell asleep at the gate. Last flight of the night and I was the ONLY person around. None of the 5 staff members thought to wake the middle aged lady asleep by herself. Woke in a panic and they said my flight left a few mins ago. Said they paged me. When I took off my hearing aids they all stood there stunned. They put me on the next flight home 12 hours later. Asked for my bags, no one took them off the plane. Against policy and illegal. Had to sleep at the airport. Very poor experience with the Air Canada staff in Las Vegas."
Pros: "Originally this flight was scheduled to be an 1hr and 17minute flight. It only took 55 minutes from gate to gate. Flight attendant was really friendly, overall a very great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft that was servicing this route was tiny and at times I found it difficult to stand up properly without hitting my head. There was a little chop upon takeoff but besides that everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Please, Toronto: if you're going to have two planes scheduled to depart at the same time, DON'T put them right next to each other. We boarded at the same time as an Air Canada Rouge flight to Dublin, and not only was it chaos trying to figure out which line you were in, but the staff working the London side of the desk weren't paging over the loudspeaker which group was next to board. It was a mess."
