Then we were rerouted through Chicago, but lost our first class seats and were bumped back to coach. This was after I had bought first class tickets for the entire trip only to be told 3 months before leaving that AA decided to switch planes on our domestic flight so there’s were no first class seats. THEN, in Chicago we tried to get first class seats on British Airways which would have been fine but After being sent to another terminal (after the bus to that terminal had stopped running) we were turned back because British Airways wouldn’t accept the boarding pass that AA had issued us. Now, having to go back to the first terminal to DISCUSS all this, we miss that flight and wind up stuck in Chicago for another 24 hours. Then, that flight was delayed by 3 hours, so we lost a day and a half of our vacation."

Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to change my seat to sit with my husband because there were empty seats."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that children sitting behind us weren't told to stop kicking the chair. They also spoke loudly when it was quiet and thus woke me up from my sleep. We were delayed leaving due to unforeseen circumstances, but our arrival time was only 15 minutes later. There was a lot of turbulence during this flight."

Pros: "The cleanliness of the airplane."
Cons: "The crew was yet and unfriendly. I asked amfjr another pillow and was told "where is yours, you have one" The food was not good and no snacks were offered mid flight.

Cons: "Everything - the plane was last updated in 1989 (you can still see where the cathode ray screens were bolted to the central overhead bins), the entertainment is laughable, several didn't work - passengers were given choice of putting up with that or getting off flight. A flight to endure, not enjoy"

Cons: "Timeliness"

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "It arrived on time."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold. People we wearing their jackets and when I mentioned it to the cabin crew member she said a few other people would have to make a similar comment before she could request turning the temperature up. There was also a glitch in the system so that the reading lights for each seat could only be operated by the seat directly in front. The food was very uninspiring and poorly presented. The tea and coffee were awful!!!!!! The choice of movies,etc was very limited. Thank goodness it was a night flight and not too long!"

Cons: "Lemon pasta mixed with tomato pasta was weird. Little salad was weird. What was it made of?? Not bad, just weird. Choco brownie was nice but richer than Trump's claims about his own wealth. Will get the chicken next time."

Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, has good entertainment program. Uncomplicated easy boarding."
Cons: "Food for 9 h wish to be better: dinner was cold (you could feel that chicken was warmed in microwave, but pasta was just taken from fridge), breakfast was pathetic. In last seats to many overhead compartments was secured for equipment or occupied by crew"

Pros: "The zone system seems to work well for boarding and the cabin crew on my flight to London were superb, helpful and polite to myself and others, despite a few impatient passengers."

Cons: "JustFly did not release my coupon to Lufthansa or Air Canada, and so I was nearly prevented from flying."

Cons: "The ticket was not valid...had to buy a new ticket"

Cons: "I bought my ticket with Air Canadafrom Vancouver to Calgary then connected with Lufthansa from Calgary to London UK. Unknown to me I could not find the flight because it had been changed to an AC reference flight. With a very short time for the connection I did not know where to get my boarding pass as my flight with Lufthansa was nowhere referred to ! Not which gate to go . Why not put it in the ticket that Lufthansa and Air Canada work together and that both flights ref should show !! It would avoid a great deal of anxiety . Only offered 1 round if hot drinks over 9 hours ! Departure delayed by nearly 60 minutes"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "I paid extra $30 for having more room due to my kneecap problem. Instead my seat was too Tight and whenever I complained no action was made. Mir Said Emami Ph. D"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "few movies"

Pros: "Excellent value for Economy flight"

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I pre ordered vegetarian meal, but I guess they did not bother."

Pros: "Staff all friendly and helpful, both at desk and in plane. Seats were pretty comfortable with sufficient leg room (I am tall), but if you are a wide person (or next to one) it would have been pretty cramped. Neither of my flights (to Newfoundland) were full so we all had a bit of extra space. Food was adequate but could be improved with fruit instead of dessert."

Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The food was terrible and the staff were in there own world and not particularly polite. Hand luggage was not managed so the bins were rammed. Some people had 3 pieces of large hand luggage. Food was the worse I have had on any flight. I would rather pay and have something edible. On 2 of my 3 flights the staff were so wrapped up in there own life's, they did not manage to finish the safety checks before taking there seat. Overall a poor experience."

Pros: "Everything. The plane was immaculate, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, the flight crew was friendly and professional. Air Canada's abillity to transit passengers from the US to international destinations is truly remarkable and must be best in class. I went from an inbound flight from Houston, through Immigration and to the gate for my flight to London in under 15 minutes!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "One of the Worst flights for punctuality 3.5 hours of delays ! Missed all my connections ! Over 24 hours in waiting ! Will try not to use air Canada again!!!"

Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Cabin was cool"

Cons: "4 hour departure delay"

Pros: "Friendly efficient staff"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dated so the seats were smaller the Luthansa"

Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Was tracking boarding from the Air Canada app as there was nowhere to sit by the departure gate or screens. The app didn't advise that the flight was boarding (unlike other apps such as BA). I missed my flight and they insisted on charging me more than what I paid for the entire ticket just to return home. I got back to London to find that my luggage didn't make the journey. Staff at Air Canada were unfriendly and unprofessional."

Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Seats were narrow and sitting in aisle seat you were constantly hit every time cabin crew took trolley up / down aisle. Woke up by cabin crew banging into me."

Pros: "tout était bien - very good"
Cons: "all was good"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient, crew were attentive, food was excellent, the "pod" was comfortable and I did not use the entertainment"
Cons: "Would have liked more info as to how to work the gizmos - had to ask how to recline my seat and never did get to grips with the entertainment. The Fast Pass specificaly said it was for disembarkation at London and so I did not realise I could have used it to get through security for ongoing flight"

Pros: "Everything was ok."

Cons: "Horrible to say the least"

Pros: "Smooth"

Pros: "The seat"
Cons: "1h30 delay once boarded The braeckfast which un fact consisted un only à slice of banana cake."

Cons: "Hardly nothing except my baggage had been damaged on handling. Some redress is welcome with thanks"

Pros: "The plane, which was American-made. Smooth ride in the air, no baggage issues."
Cons: "The crying children in front of me, the hour and a half delay, and the late dinner service. Dinner came at 8:30, after staring at those with special meals eat and finish an hour before everyone else, they should wait with the rest of us. Breakfast was pretty lackluster. Their online app and check in is awful- they should hire new coders and UX designers to increase functionality."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Everyone was pleasant and respectful."

Cons: "Was put on plane to France, 5 hour layover. Still waiting for my luggage to arrive. Frustrating in extreme."

Pros: "Arriving early Leaving on time"

Pros: "The crew was kind and smiling (not like the worst crew I’ve ever had Brussels Airlines)"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Crew had a good sense of humor"
Cons: "Don’t lose the luggage."

Cons: "More time was spent by cabin attendees selling food and drink items to one row than the rest of the passengers, making us wait for complementary water or other drinks . Really? There should be equal service for all passengers. Makes me wonder if there are incentives for the sale of extra items"

Pros: "Once we got going, it was a decent flight. Weather conditions made for a bit of a rocky landing on the first leg."
Cons: "Lack of information for delays. Boarding was slow due to unknown issue. We sat at the gate for a while without knowing why (they finally told us 5 minutes before pushoff), then we dawdled for another hour taxing and waiting for the runway, with no explanation until near the end."

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and professional."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight. Had to pay my suitcase extra (60 dollars)."

Pros: "crew was great, seating perfect!"

Cons: "My seat could not move and the antertainment system dident work"

Pros: "Sleeping!"
Cons: "Did not actually get a Polaris type cabin layout. The plane had not yet been converted."

Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The last seat didn’t have a window so if felt like you were crammed into a tiny space and had no idea what was happening."

Pros: "Comfortable. Good entertainment and good service. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Missed our flight from Brussels to Zurich. United said we were booked on next flight six hours later. Gave us vouchers and that was it. Went to check in and the carrier said sorry you can’t board United did not book you. The voucher just has prior info and this flight time. So we missed getting on that flight 3 total hours on the phone with United and they did nothing but put us on hold. Thank you to Brussels air who finally after many years and frustration helped us so we could leave. More than 10 hours later than we should have. Horrible experience and we lost a day of vacation and pre paid plans for the evening I will never use kayak again for international flights. As that was part of the problem per United (probably BS but won’t ever risk it again) and will never use United airlines again as their customer service and lack of caring showed that companies true colors. I hope the rest of this dream vacation is better than this nightmare was."

Pros: "We were surprised to find ourselves assigned to the bulkhead seats where we had extra legroom and great access to the restrooms."

Pros: "Flight attendant decided this was a water-only flight. No particular reason, just lazy."

Cons: "Wish I could have selected my seat when booking my flight"

Pros: "IAD to Brussels Flight is ok, just stuck between 2 guys with BO. Not really the United Airline's fault. But I hope they can atleast put a sign or something."

Pros: "The price, the mango sorbet, short flight into Belgium, the coffee, the water being offered often"
Cons: "The tray was very dirty and obviously had not been disinfected from the previous flight. So I brought it to the attention of one of the crew members, and I felt like she made fun of me in front of other passengers for not liking my tray dirty; and she got a little paper towel for serving, wet it with a bottled water, and wiped my tray quickly. Not hygienic at all and not a word of apology. AIR FRANCE is so much better when it comes to customer service! Also I did not like the constant interruption on the speakers, very loud in my headsets and difficult to watch a movie on tiny screens. The crew members seemed very bossy and uncaring, if not actually rude."

Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew made this trip pleasant and entertaining."
Cons: "Despite plenty of empty seats, the ground personnel would not consider changing our seat assignment at the gate to allow us to sit together."

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Very good flight, good service and good night of rest."

Pros: "Flight was on-time; no delays; great crew! I also liked the fact there was a person at the gate to let us know where our connecting flight gate was - that was really helpful!"

Cons: "Very tight quarters ..."

Cons: "space between seats!"

Pros: "There was a good entertainment system with a lot of new options."
Cons: "My itinerary said I fly on Brussels Airlines on a specific flight number. I went to the international terminal to discover it is not there. I then asked multiple aiport staff members if they heard of Brussels Airlines and they said they did not. One person said it may be terminal 1, so I went there based on very little information and with hopes it would be there. I got to terminal 1 to discover there is no Brussels Airlines. I walked to Lufthansa because my return flight is through them, but it was not there either. At this point I have 45 min to make it through security and board, and no one can tell me where Brussels Airlines is. The good news is the flight was delayed, and I got an email from United Airlines with the flight status. This is the first time I was contacted by United and there was a completly different flight number than the itinerary. United should be more clear on the airline and terminal information for international flights!"

Pros: "no problems on flight. complimentary wine."
Cons: "seats bit tight for international flight. why do I have to pay more for more leg room"

Pros: "Not u til lDr momie"

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "United canceled my flightl"
Cons: "United canceled my flightl"

Pros: "Quick hop to San Fran"
Cons: "Such a tiny plane! Carryons have to go in the hold. Any delay and you will miss your connection. Best is to check all luggage through and only bring an under seat bag on board."

Pros: "1. We booked seats together then when I checked in they had moved my seat and we were no longer sitting together. And then I couldnt get the window seat I had paI'd for :( 2. No boarding announcement and the "gate" was under construction so was a madhouse to board. 3. The crew member put her sweater in my food and pushed the coffee so hard to the person next to me it spilled all over him. To be fair she did apologize for throwing coffee on him. 4. The TV screens were so old you had to push the "touch" screen so your headrest kept moving if the person behind you couldn't decided what to watch... and then hard to watch anything yourself. The food was nasty."
Cons: "See above. I didn't like anything, this might have been the worst flight I've ever had to Brussels. I thought I booked a European carrier, but ugh it was actually United. They only care about business class and first class."

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "Food was awful. earplugs terrible"

Pros: "Nice food, good crew"
