Pros: "Crew was attentive, food tasted great, the whole experience wasn't anything like the American style companies that try to shake you down for every penny and still get get ripped off."

Pros: "I had to cancel my trip but I couldn’t return any money for not used tickets, lost everything."
Cons: "Money return policy"
Pros: "I paid extra to get bulkhead seat. But the monitor won't stay up. So I asked for help. Flight attendant used duct tape for both my monitor and the one next to mine."
Cons: "My boarding pass was marked with SSSS and I was subjected to another security search at the gate in NRT! They laid out all my carry-on stuff in 2 long tables and swabbed both my hands. Then sent me on my way, leaving my passport on the table. Good thing I had the presence of mind to look for it!!!"
Cons: "Luggage lost. Tv audio did not work"
Pros: "Crew members are extremely friendly and the seat has more leg room."

Pros: "Overall is good :)"
Pros: "I wish all long haul flights were like this. Very clean and well maintained cabin space, good quality food, very attentive, helpful and polite cabin crew. Never thought I’d be able to say this, but the 14 hour flight with two young children in economy was a really enjoyable experience with JAL!"
Cons: "Really no complaints"
Cons: "no 1st class offered. I wanted to use my system wide upgrade but can't get a flight that offers 1st class anymore"

Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."
Pros: "Good space between seats. Cleanest of the restroom. Nice crew service"
Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "food is ok"
Pros: "JAL is great!"
Pros: "Excellent service from flight attendants and crew. food and snacks were excellent. seating,movies and experience was above my expectations. no problems at all"
Cons: "The dinner meal was not what I requested. A roll with breakfast would have helped. The shrimp was good what was under them was not so good. We had to wait tell last minute to sit together."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Because of some system updating we were unable to check in online and had to wait until we got to the airport to select seats. By then, there were no decent seats available. My bladder nearly burst because the guy next to me slept the whole time. They say it will take 3 weeks to update the system. This is a terrible level of customer care."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment and the crews attention made me fell welcomed."
Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."
Pros: "The attentiveness of the flight attendants. They were very helpful. Overall, the flight was a smooth one."
Pros: "I really loved the food they served on the airline, along with the entertainment and the stuardesses. It made for a very enjoyable trip."

Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "They did their best to put me pn another flight to Norfolk buf it wasn't straight through"

Pros: "Food Service Crew actually cares about you"
Pros: "Bought my ticket in June, when I could access the AA site for my seat selection, it wanted $18 to $35 to make the seat selection. We chose to get the assignment at the airport, but could only get it at tge gate. Made me feel like I was flying standby!"
Pros: "Plane was not sold out, I was able to have the roll with my girlfriend. All flights should be like this."
Cons: "They made me pay for a seat that they gave to other people for free. Really messed up."
Pros: "Glad to make it to Japan safely and back in one piece"
Pros: "Nothing I like , when u buy the ticket they're so nice , but after paid they're very bad, never take care of you, u ask them some help, they're can't"
Cons: "They every bad customer service, I never seen before"
Pros: "The plane offered a variety of channels and movies. The seats were comfy and the staff were very informative and friendly. Overall, I had an excellent experience"
Pros: "Good, clean aircraft; professional, pleasant, well-trained crew. Felt good when I embarked, felt good when I disembarked. Can't ask for more than that."
Cons: "No individual AC vents to stay cool on long flight."
Pros: "JAL 787 Coach Product is better than AA Coach 777 product. Wider Coach seats. 787 aircraft is more comfortable overall (less noisy, higher humidity, higher pressure) resulting in a better experience after my travel."
Cons: "Meals are not fantastic; they never seem to be in coach. Much of the entertainment seemed similar to what was on the same aircraft when I traveled three months earlier."
Pros: "Very comfortable, good movie/entertainment choices, great crew"
Pros: "attentive flight attendants, the aircraft looked reallly nice & they gave me a good seating position w/ more leg room"

Cons: "Requested Vegetarian Meals. Didn't get them"
Pros: "Flight was very good. Entertainment and power on new Dreamliner is excellent. Food - better than the hot dog we received as a meal on the LAX-KIX flight. Still just ok overall. Seat comfort is ok but more recline - at least in premium economy."
Pros: "The crew were all exceptionally pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "I didn't care at all for the food."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Economy seats were far more generous than AA. Premium Economy was a great value! I will look to travel JAL over AA more in the future."
Pros: "The flight staff on Japan airlines was great. The meals were excellent, and the flight itself was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight was rebooked without notification leaving us sitting apart for a 12 hour flight to Japan. This left us with one option of an unexpectedly upgrade in order to sit next to each other"
Pros: "New aircraft and diligent crew; the food was frequent and tasted great. No complaints; would gladly fly JAL any time, anywhere."
Pros: "I wasn't interested in the meal which i would eat in airplane before i got on the plane. So, without any expectation i got the meal. It tasted good and the service after meal was also good. If i have a chance later, want to take air Japan again."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Japanese food not great"
Pros: "Everything from start to finish was awesome. The "poor" review by someone complaining about a gluten-free meal is typical of Americans that feel entitled. You are on JAPAN airlines... you do realize the non-gluten-free rice is a staple of the country. It's akin to a Japanese person complaining that there aren't chopsticks provided with the meals on an American Airlines flight. How were the staff supposed to help you mid-air? Mid-flight dock so one special meal can be provided for you? How about this: take some personal responsibility and purchase your own gluten free food for the flight and carry it on. Really... how can one compare the 787 with individual on demand entertainment, roomy seats, full meal service (they'll even bring a meal to you if you were asleep during the normal service), etc... all for no extra charge?!?!? It is simply amazing what JAL (and every Japanese company) sets as a standard for customer service."
Pros: "Shortest travel time to Japan"
Cons: "OLD PLANES Touchscreens won't 50% of the time"
Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."
Pros: "Movies and shows. Blankets. Prompt staff on plane. Snack options."
Cons: "Ticket counter was stubborn to release our boarding passes despite having already checked in online. Saying we were “too late”. The kiosk would not release our boarding passes either. Yet, we breezed right through security to the gate and we’re first to board the plane having had to actually wait awhile before boarding. The ticket counter person unnecessarily made us wait even longer when we were already running late due to having spent 11 hours in the hospital day prior from E. coli. The boarding process was also sloppy. Three different attendants asked to see our passports. Why did everyone need to verify us? We were asked very silly and seemingly unnecessary questions before boarding further slowing the process. We were asked before boarding if we had checked a bag, not sure what difference that made."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Pros: "The time we take to aboard"
Cons: "The space between seats"
Pros: "Plane is nice"
Cons: "Food options and more beverage options"

Cons: "Attitude of the Aeromexico flight attendants . No customer service skills . Rude and disregarding"
Pros: "The time, wasn't long flight"
Pros: "Nothing about boarding"
Cons: "After being the only person pulled out of line for my carryon and myself to be checked at the boarding gate, I asked a simple question to the lady who profiled me, “what made you profile me for this additional security check out of hundreds of passengers here, I’d like to know”. I was met with such rude behavior which I never encountered with any airline before. Not only was her attitude rude, she couldn’t answer my question and Aeromexico didn’t bother to get someone fluent in English to answer me. Notice I wasn’t refusing the security check; it’s just that they were rude, cold and made me feel like a criminal while checking me. They need to improve their system for security checks at the boarding gate. I don’t understand why I had to be checked further bc they already check every passenger before entering the gates and boarding area. I still don’t know the answer to my question. The lady’s attitude embarrassed me and ruined my experience. Aeromexico should retrain their staff and make them realize it’s bc of us they have a job and they should be serving us with proper customer service and have their attitudes in check. Because I have every right to ask that question and will continue to do so! I forgot the lady’s name..but would be happy if my msg got taken seriously and the lady made aware.."
Cons: "We waiting for 45 minutes on the run way because was not a corridor ready to depart we are number 8 on line. Was not entertainment available the system was down no music, no movies, no nothing"

Cons: "No communication, poor in flight service, extreme delays."
Pros: "The service and attention to the customer"
Pros: "Boarding lines were long, but allowing boarding from both front and rear of plane speeds things up. Small breakfast snack served on flight was nice and appreciated. Pleasant crew members and a nice quiet flight!"
Cons: "Tight seats are tough, but I guess passenger comfort is a thing of the past."
Pros: "Nice fight. Attentive crew."
Cons: "I needed assistance and it was kindly provided"
Pros: "I like that I and my luggage arrived at my destination."
Cons: "Flight Delays: It happens, BUT every flight, but 1 was severely delayed leaving, arriving, and then departing again. The only flight that left and arrived on time was Guatemala to Mexico City. Mis information from Flight Crew: Aero Mexico flight crew put everyone in a panic on flight from LAX to MEX and Guatemala to MEX by saying that everyone had to pick up their luggarge.. even if you were just in transit to another country. Once I went down and asked Information, they stated that I did not need to pick up my bags as they would in fact be transportated to my final destination. When I told AeroMexico about this.. they didn’t seem to care that they were saying something completely different to everyone on their planes. In the future I will avoid booking with Aero Mexico.. I felt vulnerable and that Mexico didn’t have its clients in their best interest. Additionally, their lack of WiFi is embarrassingly cheap of them. Guatemala has free wifi, I assumed everywhere provides wifi for its visitors. Mexico supposedly gives you 5 min free and they don’t make that easy to access."
Pros: "Everything went well for the most part.. food not that great but The staff was friendly. The only 2 issues I had 1) no movie on the way to our destinmovies/shows on the way back. 2) my daughter got sick on the way back due to turbulence & I ask for a bag to put her dirty clothes in & was denied. Would have been nice not to have been carrying around vomited clothes on my hand."
Cons: "The only 2 issues I had 1) no movie on the way to our destinmovies/shows on the way back. 2) my daughter got sick on the way back due to turbulence & I ask for a bag to put her dirty clothes in & was denied. Would have been nice not to have been carrying around vomited clothes on my hand."
Pros: "The in flight crew was kind and helpful"
Cons: "The gate agent in New York was terrible. We didn’t get a drinks round on the way from Mexico City to New York."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Did not have the immigration form. Had to pay panelty to get another. A checklist of documents required displayed would have been helpful. Immigration Office only accepted Pesos. I was willing to pay $40USD but they insisted on $533 Pesos, which was $31USD. Aeromexico seemed stingy on baggage weight. 22lbs max check-in."
Pros: "She was not interested at all in providing a good service, rude with older people, not a smile at all during the flight. In the connexion from Mexico city to Santiago the flight attendances were very nice, but I don't understand why you keep in the job someone that is not in the mood for working excellent"
Cons: "Was not happy that the plane did not have individual screens for entertainment on the long flight."
Cons: "How crowded it was and how much they charge for luggagr"
Pros: "I enjoyed being able to watch a movie on the plane. Definitely makes flying a little better!"
Cons: "We flew with AeroMexico and the customer service is horrible! No one informed us that the plane was delayed and then we heard staff talk badly about us and other customers because we asked that they give us more information. They really need to train their staff again, or replace them!"
Pros: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."
Pros: "good service!"
Cons: "both flights were delayed."
Pros: "The service was extraordinary since the first moment I checked in. Crew was super attentive, professional and over standing. The service in airport was fast and efficient and in the plane crew and services totally exceed my perspectives. Thank you!"
Cons: "Couldn’t make the connection because the flight was oversold!!!!"
Cons: "the boarding time was delayed, the airplane, although the seat was comfortable, the aircraft was small, therefore, it lacked space for all carry-ons. the entertainment, even though it was innovative, if your computer lacked the correct programs you could not run it."
Pros: "Service and complimentary at-seat entertainment."
Cons: "There is a $25 checked bag fee for the first bag."
Pros: "Food service, upgrade, and leg room"
Cons: "Need more food options to ofered"
Pros: "No turbulence at all, smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Knees hit the passenger seat in front of me. Hardly any leg room, we were all packed in like sardines."
Pros: "Attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Space between seats and back rest. Atten"
Pros: "Everyone who worked on this trip was very friendly and helpful. They all handled the high pressure and busy nature of the job with excellent professionalism."
Pros: "All the movies And tv shows"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable chairs and a long boarding process"
Pros: "I was so happy that Aeromexico and Copa worked together to check my bags all the way to my destination even though I was flying 2 different airlines. It made it so wonderful since I was flying alone with my four kids. Everything went smoothly with the tickets and check in. Everyone was very helpful."
Cons: "2 many cancelations. 3 cancelations. 10 houra trip ends on 34 hours trip"
Cons: "i like everything service entreteinment very good i really enjoyed the movies employes helpfull i whish they have hot meals like before other than that i was very pleased thank you"
Pros: "Overall the flights went smoothly"
Cons: "Check in process was very slow and totally disorganized. It happened both leaving and returning. Took one hour to checkin in Orlando and about the same when leaving Mexico City. Could do with some major improvements here....."
Cons: "AEROMEXICO doesn't allow any checked baggage you have to pay for every single piece of luggage that you check so I guess this is not good at all!!! On top of this I called like 5 times to Aeromexico....Reservations...custumser service...reservations again...custumer service again... bottom line each one of them gave me different information?????!!!! so I just had to guess which one was the correct answer from the same company AEROMEXICO!!!!"
Pros: "I like the non stop flight."
Cons: "I honestly don't see the point in having so many terminals to check in. I had my reservation code I was even able to pay for my bag and wouldn't print out the boarding pass so I had to go to the assistance counter. There was one one person helping out with this issue and took me close to 30 mins to be able to get a boarding pass"
Pros: "The crew is really nice and accommodating. Boarding is efficient."
Cons: "Some of their planes are old and need some upkeep."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, food was adequate. Smooth flight!"
Cons: "The plane was old and extremely filthy. In flight entertainment was lacking, given the flight was over 3 hours I had expected more options."
Crew timed out for a 7:20am flight. They had to fly another crew in. Didn’t leave until 3pm. Very poor communication throughout the day. Received a $12 food voucher and 8000 miles for compensation. Bags delayed in San Diego - came in on later flight. Delivered around 11:30pm
Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase. An awful awful trip thanks to American Airlines.
Pros: "This was the worst flying experience I have ever encountered."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac 3 hours, then deplaned to a holding area for another hour and then were told the flight would be delayed until 1 pm the next day. I booked this flight in order to arrive home 7 hours earlier than originally planned on Alaska Air. I finally arrived 20 hours LATER THAN I WOULD HAVE ARRIVED!"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Stop charging for wifi. Jet blue has free wifi on domestic flight"
Pros: "On time, easy boarding. I have always thought they should load the back of the plane first, but I don't think that will ever happen!"
Cons: "We get it about the masks! Between the airport and the airline we hear it 100 times. Taking it down to 50 would be nice."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The flight was packed and wearing masks Was not enforced."
Pros: "It was a small jet but the first class section was extremely nice."
Cons: "Small jets have limited overhead space and most roller bags have to be gate checked for pickup when you exit the plane. My roller bag is small to fit under a seat, and it fit in the overhead."
Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Pros: "That it arrived eventually without crashing"
Cons: "Boarding. Sitting on a tarmac in hot stuffy plane for 40 min is not why I was looking for"
Cons: "The food was pretty terrible, especially the egg breakfast."
Cons: "Missed flight due to not being able to access terminal because of stopped Skylink. Arrived at terminal while plane was still boarding but was told I could not board cause it was the final two minutes. Horrible customer service. Asked them to please contact the gate and let them know I was enroute on foot. They refused."
Cons: "No había espacio para equipaje arriba."
Pros: "On time departure from PHL and on time arrival in LAX."
Cons: "This was an older Airbus A321 with no power outlets at the seats and no video screens on the back of seats. As an Executive level Advantage member, I felt that I received no special recognition from onboard flight staff; they did the minimum as scripted."
Pros: "The seating is cramped as has become customary."
Cons: "Instead of taking my one half of one ounce plastic cup half-full of wine, the stewad, allowed me to keep it. I love common sense."
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Pros: "The entertainment system is pretty cool and complete. There seems to be more room on coach."
Cons: "The usb charger for my seat didn't work. The power cord kept falling off."
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Pros: "Although they charged me $10 to book a seat for check in it allowed me to pick one that keep the middle seat open for my wife."
Cons: "To be charged to pick a seat. You should have revealed that in you pricing."
Pros: "Too many passengers, crazy lines and the food not great. Flight crew was friendly and helpful. Was great in terms of flight time. Flight arrive earlier than expect. Was smooth flight in terms of turbulence."
Cons: "Food. I didn’t like my seat, was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Fast trip!"
Cons: "We were delayed because of a broken tray table and then the broken tray table was mine. But we made it, and the flight was good, so it was fine."
Cons: "It took 30 ish minutes to wait in line to speak to to an AA rep about what my next steps were to get home from Dallas."
Pros: "Crew aircraft and was given an exit window seat no charge"
Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"
Pros: "Staff at SAN was good helpful. Check in was seemless."
Cons: "Wishing that they would serve something to drink — even if I would have to pay for it. Flight attendant gave me wrong directions and I left for another terminal while my carry on luggage (which had to be checked) was still at the gate. I had to wait until it arrived at baggage claim."
Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"
Pros: "We shopped price, this was the most affordable flight for us."
Cons: "Getting seat reservations should be easier and sooner."
Pros: "This flight was not full, so most people on the plane had the opportunity to spread out and have an empty seat next to them. The in-flight entertainment choices were vast."
Cons: "Food quality was not as good as some of the other flights, but there was still an ample amount of food served."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "Seats were relatively comfy. Things were on-time."
Cons: "Vegetarian and vegan food options were virtually non-existent.iwas so hungry during this 7-hr flight. There was no seat-back entertainment."
Cons: "Broken in-flight entertainment system, broken ac plug, broken arm rest"
Pros: "The flight was equal to AA service I have had on a regular basis."
Pros: "Arrived on time !"
Cons: "We arrived on time but this is the 9th Flight in A row into PHILADELPHIA that we can’t Find an open Gate. Then we just sit and wait 15 to 30 minutes! No other airport that we travel To has this problem!"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Comfort and other services were among the best I've experienced ever flying."
Pros: "Nothing very unhelpful staff also very rude"
Cons: "How they sell a ticket without seats available?? Very unpleasant flight! I will never buy through kayak.com and never will flight with American Airlines again"
Cons: "The video screens weren't very good. You had to tap screen multiple times to select a choice."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. I know it's not AA's fault, but still, despite how nice the plane and staff were, I was sweating bullets for two hours!"
Pros: "Food, flight plan on the screen, selection of music and movies, that the lights were turned down for sleep, quiet efficiency of the crew"
Pros: "The stewardess was nice enough to give me water with my gingerale"
Cons: "We didn't take off until 3 hours after scheduled, and we're forced to watch ads on the overhead monitors for most of the flight. I was not impressed. Poor communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge."
Pros: "The entertainment is modern and had a good mix of movies and music."
Cons: "It was crowded and and hot. I couldn't stand to go to the bathroom because the seat in front of me was leaned so far back."
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost 2 hours and when I went to ask the lady at the kiosk a question I was basically told to go sit doWn and be quiet"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "No gate available upon early arrival. Paying extra for aisle seats is ridiculous."
Cons: "The flight out of Dallas was delayed. We hustled to our last gate and the person was incredibly rude about last call a d is just arriving to the gate..."
Pros: "Extremely late-no specific reason-AC lounge closed at 9 so we were asked to leave-boarding area was so packed no where to sit so sat on “rails”. After 3 hrs delay u expect something like some peanuts to compensate-but no-they are as bad as any other NA airline if not worse-awful service, all they wanted cared after giving some soda or water is to Collect the garbage-plane was not cleaned properly. Dirty paper and cups in pockets. Wish i did not have to fly AC"
Pros: "Smooth and fast very clean and attentive crew"
Cons: "I have flown Air Canada many times, and have never taken off on time. Most flights I have been on, were 30 -60 minutes late. Cabin service is usually minimal, lackadaisical, and indifferent. I would only fly Air Canada again as a last resort"
Pros: "Everything is excellent!"
Cons: "The boarding procedure."
Pros: "The crew at the airport and on the plane were excellent. We were on a family holiday with young ones and the crew really took care of our needs. They were extremely courteous and attentive."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options could be more current. We found the options limited... it was a good thing that the flight was short."
Cons: "Late departure- even with snow issues have not had similar problems with WestJet"
Cons: "When I had to change my wife's ticket due to an emergency, we were charged over $415.00. That is unfair."
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "Because I miss my flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Airplane was old, uncomfortable and no screens"
Pros: "Their sympathy for our atrocious wait was, free pop and water, and some pretzels. $30 meal vouchers at the limited options gate area, which could only be used towards a meal (really? no where else?). Here's a were sorry email and a discount on your next flight with us. I have yet to see how much the significant cost for that discount but my expectations of Air Canada are very low."
Cons: "That delay was horrendous, I spent 10 hours at an airport. I woke up so god damn early to get there because of news spreading the worries of people waiting at customs immigration to the U.S. it only took us 40min to get through and the flight delay notice was given an hour and a half before departure. We couldn't even sleep on any benches because they were all designed for individuals to sit. It wasn't until our gate location moved to the end of that area was there any carpeted floor space to sleep on. On the flight, economy seating was very tight with limited leg room, and best of all our seats had no window, literally every other row in our section had a window. Air Canada handled this stressful event very poorly, once they figured out bringing a new air craft hours later, and everyone moved to the new gate area, all the attendants had left from their gate post until 40min before the flight which was hours later."
Pros: "Roomy plane."
Cons: "Restroom no working for disabled. Boarding was disorganized and chaotic."
Pros: "Very good crue"
Cons: "Very concientiousvAiur Canada employees"
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and kind"
Pros: "Direct to Toronto"
Cons: "Too many to list"
Cons: "Bumped off a direct flight from Toronto to Fort lauderdale with 6 other people. We all booked back in february. They are overbooking 5 to 10 percent now and kicking off the people who paid the least. There is no advantage to booking early only to be bumped. At the gate the AC employee said we would be credited 3 to 4 hundred dollars but we had to run to the customer service desk and then hop on an AC flight to Houston connecting with United Airlines to Fort Lauderdale. At the customer service desk a herd of people waited anxiously to be re booked and compensated. When they started handing out notice that they would send us 200 in the mail there was an uproar that fell on deaf ears. We then ran to get on the houston flight only to find out that flight was overbooked as well. We had to wait to see if they had any no shows. Fortunately I was able to stay on the plane. Upon arriving in Houston we were quickly ran to the United airline gate only to find out that Air Canada had dropped the ball again. We were not booked on the flight. Five of us had no seats booked , while I was booked to depart on a morning flight the next day with no accomodations arranged? Fortunately for us United Airlines picked up the ball and some how got us on the plane to Fort Lauderdale. Upon arriving around 1140pm! should have arrived at 5:20pm direct! we quickly ran to the AC terminal to get our luggage that was originally checked on the first flight. We were told that it would be there. AC employees with no concern at all told us it's not here and it would have been on the united flight that we just arrived on. After I explained that we werent even scheduled to be on the United flight by air canada, so there's no way it made it onto the plane. They looked at us like we were idiots, closed thier office doors and walked away. We ran back to the other terminal( shuttle buses stop at 11pm in Fort Lauderdale?) only to find no luggage again. Fortunately United picks up the ball again and traces our luggage back to Toronto, AC pulled it and left it sitting there. Because of Air Canada's inept employees I missed my rental car reservation and had to buy new clothes for the wedding the next day. They said they'd have the luggage to me by 11 am , it arrived at 11:30 pm the next day. Save yourself the hassel, fly any other airline other then the iconic continually bailed out by the federal goverment airline. If you know, no matter how bad your company and service is ,you will always be bailed out would you work hard? Probably not, hence the atrocious attitude and poor performance of this dead horse airline."
Pros: "Efficient and helpful."
Pros: "There are thousands of national brands that are kosher. It's not difficult to find products that all passengers can enjoy."
Pros: "Where rude also unable to hear safety announcemts"
Cons: "TO - Pearson AIRPORT horrid CUSTOMS layout- all automation with little assistance and little signage what to do... when 300+ people need it simultaneously it is a mess. NO warnings if/when to collect luggage or not- so waste time at baggage carosel when it is not coming out between flights. Too few Attendants sending connections on wild walk through long concourses to undefined line ups. Customs surely...not humored at all. Why the second time 45 mins cattle line up for security pass through before customs?? IN TRANSIT STILL??!! Not having proper crew ready to take over flight when delays make first crew sign off...waited on plane with no service for 1.5 hrs no water or food - should have disembarked to terminal?? Babies kids had 5 hrs onboard with no distractions or food. YIKES!! In the AIRPORT lack of AIR Canada personnel attending gateways! EMPTY until 20 mins before flights. Customer Service Desks somewhat helpful...could do more form their stations."
Cons: "Slow check-in, old plane"
Cons: "One man wanted me to check an empty carry on bag I travel for 10 years with this high quality foldable carry on bag, it is a tight in their test cradle because of the wheels but it does fit. Even a passanger offer me is support telling the agent he was not reasonable after getting the bag in and out 4 times he still wanted me to check the bag in ? After 10 min arguments he said ok put it on the floor ! I could of put 2 of my foldable bag on the top storage if I had 2.... it was a connecting from same airline a much smaller plane which accepeted the bag . Very unpleasant ! Some people like to feel in power."
Cons: "The space between the row seat has become too narrow."
Cons: "Old planes,limited food"
Pros: "The staff was very professional and quite helpful. The flight was good. I would recommend it to everyone."
Pros: "Layla!!!! Mimosa Heineken"
Cons: "The crew waited so long to start selling food. Then, by the time the cart got to where I was sitting (only halfway back) they were already sold out of the two things I wanted to buy. The tea they served was the dregs from the bottom of the kettle, nasty and bitter. There was no "entertainment," except a crew member renting out a couple of ipads that connected to the wifi. The luggage compartments are oddly shaped so that you can only put your luggage in the long way. It a misuse of space. A lot of people had a hard time finding any place to put their bags. During takeoff, one of the luggage compartments opened up twice."
Pros: "1/2 hour late in departing. 2 1/2 hours. Sitting on Tarmac on flight to Toronto. Too crowded on plane"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "No leg room Overbooked Bad choice of movies"
Pros: "-Direct flight -The boarding by sections. Less of a stampede."
Cons: "When I arrived to my seat, the overhead compartment was full. I had no room for my carry-on. I mentioned it to the flight attendant. He just shrugged and told me to put my carry-on under the seat in front of me. So, #1, I guess some people bring more carry-on and the staff lets them. And #2, I guess it wasn't tight enough in those seats and even though I'm over 6 ft, the staff had to make it tighter. Also, when it was time to land, I thought my seat was all the way up. It was not fully all the way up. I was half asleep, and all of sudden, instead of telling me, one of the flight attendant pushed on the button to raise my seat. I would've appreciated him telling me. The landing was delayed, but that's no ones fault at rouge. I am trying to be as objective as I can. Hopefully, when (and if) someone at Air Canada-Rouge reads this, he or she has enough "pull" at the company to ask the proper authorities:"what kind of company are we? Are we a bargain basement flight company that offers just basic flights for extremely low prices? Or are we an average flight company that offer great value for the money the customer pays?" Because, from my perspective as a customer who is at his second experience with Air Canada-Rouge, the feeling that I get from flying with you guys, is that your company offers basic flights that doesn't offer great value for the money. It's more a company that "plays on both fields", taking what suits them, and leaving what doesn't , regardless of their customer. I understand that a company has to make money. It's normal. But, at a certain point, don't you have to think about your customers? To be honest, the only reason I flew with Air Canada-Rouge is that I was stuck with no other choices but to fly with you (schedule, cost, etc.) And I know for a fact that I'm not the only one. The feeling that I get, is that your company counts on customer like me. Customers that are "stuck", with no other alternatives. If your company wants to offer many "cheap direct flights" like Ryanair and Easyjet offer in Europe, I have 2 suggestions: #1: lower your prices. #2 :your staff should be more customer friendly savvy. Because those 2 companies, that's what they offer. Always remember: you can put a lot of maple syrup on a pile of sh***t, it still won't taste like pancakes. Thank you."
Pros: "The on board crew was excellent - very patient and forthcoming. I could not say the same thing about the ticketing agents or the boarding procedure."
Cons: "The seating on on this plane was the most uncomfortable I have experienced in a long time - with the exception of my outbound flight which featured the same type of plane. Air Canada tries to charge you for every little thing and I guess that I am one of those people that does not appreciate being nickled and dimed. I will look for other airlines the next time I book a flight to Canada. What a disappointment!"
Cons: "There was no in seat screens for entertainment. Space was much more cramped than other Air canada flight we had. Knees were against seat in front. No snacks provided only drinks. Food was available for purchase."
Cons: "Flight got delayed over 1 hr"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it."
Cons: "The crew needs to learn how to effectively execute the meal/drink service. It takes entirely too long. Also, on an international Flight, over three hours, you don't provide a snack!? And the small cup of soda we get takes over an hour for some people to get. The seats are entirely too close. I'm 5'9 and my knees were digging into the seat in front of me. Then the guy in front of me reclined and I had absolutely no room. I had to turn to the side. We didn't board until around the time we were supposed to depart. We were over a hour behind schedule. They held the plane to get a passenger's bag off because he was stuck in customs. Unless it's a funeral I need to get to, I'm not flying Air Canada again."
Cons: "My first flight had free snacks and movies to watch yet it was only an hour in the air. This flight was much longer with no movies and having to pay for snacks. Seems a tad backwards."

Cons: "Being delayed twice- once for late passengers then for door problems"
Pros: "The ground staff were vl.ery helpfull"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable that I have sat in in my 60 years of flying. It was a nearly full plane and they ran out of some of the breakfast food by rhe third row was being served. I would not fly on Air Canada Rough again."
Cons: "Rouge was the problem here. Unlike regular Air Canada flights, the seats are extra cramped and there are no seat-back TVs or power outlets. (Also, the crew didn't seem to include any French speakers - weird for Air Canada.) I preferenced AC for this flight. Next time I would avoid them if it's Rouge."
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: "This was the first time traveling to Canada. Everything went so smooth. I will definitely be using Air Canada again!"

We almost missed out flight! Also once we were settled and was able to order our drinks, it took them so long to teturn"
Cons: "As soon as we got our drinks. We started descending which meant we has to drink fast. It was not enjoyable!"
Pros: "Crew very professional and provided excellent service."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Everything was okay."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The space in this seat I had, was awesome. The boarding crew was rather pleasant and I loved how my gate was right next to my next gate."
Cons: "The attitudes of the flight attendants on this particular flight; they seemed highly agitated, probably because they looked tired, but who knows? Their performance reflected their attitudes."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to a nonsense delay from Charlotte. Arrived at the gate 1 minute after scheduled take off and the plane was gone.

I will never fly united again"

Pros: "I liked that it was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants are rude and cranky. The plane was hot and over booked."
Cons: "after transferring from terminal B after a long walk then another long walk to transfer to Terminal C and another walk to baggage claim for a 70 yr.old woman and no transport available is intolerable and unacceptable! It is so disgusting that I am a frequent flyer via United Airlines and getting more and more dissatisfied cause of the troubles I'm encounterring flying with United Airlines! I should think twice,the next time I'm booking with the airline for my next flight!"
Cons: "Time on planes"
Cons: "Delayed departure again"
Cons: "On board service!!!!!"
Pros: "Not bad overall. I was exhausted at one point and passed out in my chair. I would have missed my flight if the gentleman boarding people hadn't noticed and woke me up to ask if I should be on the flight. I was out so deeply that I hadn't heard any announcements. There wasn't any food on the three flights but a cookie waffle thing and that was all I had during the 13ish hours I was on planes. The staff was super awesome and nice. Space wasn't any different than other planes, but tight on the first flight. I got lucky on the last two."

The Spanish speaking woman that pushed my wheelchair told me that I can bring my water bottles full of water through the metal detectors. I asked if she could take me somewhere to pour them out and refill them on the other side. They threw them away at the metal detector. So I had to buy a new bottle for my medicine that I have to take. You would think she would have got it by me carrying these bottles around but nope. She actually said to me that I can give her gratuity now if I wanted. I gave her $1. She then replied in a sarcastic voice " Thankyou you are soooo generous. I don't like feeling obligated to tip somebody because I am disabled and have a bullet in my head."

Cons: "Delayed flight, but not to long"

Cons: "For a 5 hour flight, instead of a glass of coke or juice, I should get the whole can. Need an alternative to a cookie. some people have 'sugar problems'."
Cons: "Probably one of the worst flights I have ever had. Flight cancelled - bumped back to last flight of the day. Even the standby was a mess up, boarded the plane where my seat was already taken, and after 10mins standingin the middle aisle, asked to leave. Just a drama"
