Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The cabin was a little cool for me during at least half of the flight"
Cons: "Everything was really nice. The snacks were good. I don’t know if there are excellent t snacks but very good."

Cons: "Seats aren’t super comfy, but that’s true of economy on any plane."
Pros: "Seats were horrible, we all booked together and a bunch of my group got bumped to a different flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by six hours, for no other reason than the airline itself, not the weather. Change of planes, emergency landing back at Atlanta, changed to another plane, no flight crew for over an hour, then to top it off, the final landing was the hardest I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "The flight attendants were borderline rude. No eye contact, no smile, not helpful when asking a question (overhead compartments were full in my section; I asked what I should do, response: „ I don’t know either“ and walked off. I went to find a spot further up the aisle..."

Pros: "Excellent landing into Butte Mt. Very smooth landing over gorgeous mountains. The pilot flew us directly over some of my favorite Hikes near the Continental Divide."
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."
Pros: "Everything went as I had expected it to, and as I hoped it would. Delta was super on both legs of the journey to Philadelphia."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "It was delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "We were kept informed about the delays. I was was automatically rebooked on connecting flights because of the delays."
Cons: "Travel delays and cancellations on the return to ATL was the big issue."
Pros: "everthing went well"
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Pros: "Was on time, in fact early. Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The CRJ is just very small. No room in the overheads, no room below. Seat didn't recline, all average carryons have to be gate checked, the usual. Well it still beats driving!"
Pros: "The stewardess accidentally spilled a little water on me but she was so nice about it and apologetic that she paid for my drink. Good people skills in bad situations make a huge difference."
Pros: "Smooth process, nice plane, amicable staff"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and took great care of us. The food was surprisingly good and our seats were comfortable. It was worth upgrading to Premium for the extra legroom and other little perks."
Cons: "I really can’t think of a bad part...the customer service at check in was so easy; our checked bags were automatically transferred in Calgary, the crew was very friendly, food was good as was the wine and beer."
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Cons: "Dinner service on the Calgary-London flight started very late and the cabin lights weren’t dimmed for several hours on this night flight."
Cons: "Seats are horrible with westjet"
Cons: "No beverage service at all and only pretzels offered when I asked if I could have nuts or cookies."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "WS Care Center staff Minmico (think it was her name) arranged the 4:15 flight instead of the 6 pm flight but only because I requested her to check that flight when I returned to the CC to find out if it was possible to get on an earlier flight. I should have been advised when I first arrived at the CC from my delayed flight from Toronto that I could check back at the CC to see if there was a cancellation. Minmico allowed me to use her phone a couple of times to call my husband to advise him of the changes in my flight, which was very helpful. She tried hard just prior to the flight departure to have my bag delivered to the 4:15 flight but was unsuccessful. She gave me food vouchers, which I liked. I also thought the WS CC staff in Abbotsford was very helpful explaining the process for making a baggage claim when my bag didn't arrive due to my last minute flight change - the $100 voucher was appreciated when I picked up my bag the next day."
Cons: "Had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours because the computer was being fixed on the plane. Crew did not communicate in a timely manner about when we would be flying.The plane should not have been in operation if the computer didn't work and passengers should not have had to wait on the plane for two hours while it was fixed. I missed my WS connecting flight to Abbotsford from Calgary and was only rescheduled on a plane departing 6 hours later! No one at WesJet Care suggested there may be a cancellation on an earlier flight - I had to arrange it by returning to the WS Care Center. I just barely made it onto an earlier 4:15 pm flight but without my bag which was put onto the later 6 pm flight. I chose to return the next day to pick up my bag."
Pros: "Westjet is great but charging for checked bags makes customers stuff more and carry more onto the plane. Westjet should rethink this as the overhead bins are becoming tougher to find space for luggage"
Cons: "Checking in at Airport very slow, I had a terrible experience even thought I spoke to them several times at checking counter. And missed my ride home as a consecuencia of arriving late."
Pros: "Westjet service is always the best. Flight was smooth and seemed very short. Again the crew makes it the best!"
Cons: "We were late cause of a thunderstorm but that is nobody's fault."
Pros: "Nice customer service pleasant flight. Fkight attendants are really nice"
Cons: "2.5+ hour delay from Calgary to Winnipeg. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The friendly staff."
Cons: "The actual plane. First flight was 737. Second flight Prop plane. Ugh"
Pros: "Great staff. Overall good considering the cheap flight."
Cons: "No free meal, the pizza ordered was terrible. No tv, only iPads for rent."

Pros: "I just love WestJet"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite. Short efficient trip."
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting for our checked bags for 45 minutes. Utterly ridiculous, especially with the tiny plane we were on."

Cons: "Could have ended our trip together but we were separated"
Pros: "Always friendly and helpful...great to see and experience!"
Cons: "Computers down delayed checkin. Items stolen from checked bags. Flight delayed. Lost bag on a flight with no transfers."
Cons: "no food, no comfort, no entertainment stuff"
Pros: "Easy low volume airport palm desert"
Cons: "I am a tall person and the seating is just too darn close with absolutely no leg room for a tall person to fit comfortably in the seat. In fact, I could not even get the tray/table to come down level because my knees were too high and there was not enough distance between myself and the passenger seat in front of me to allow the tray table to come down completely and sit flat."
Pros: "Always great crew members!"
Cons: "Power outage in Kamloops, causing a little boarding and seating issues, crew handled it well!"
Pros: "Nice service"
Cons: "Tight seating in coach"
Pros: "Crew was great! I've decided on flights over 5 hours, upgrading as much as you can is important."
Pros: "Flew part of the trip on a Mexicana plane and part on a WestJet plane. and service, food and entertainment was far superior on Mexicana than Westjet"
Pros: "Roast beef sandwich was great"
Cons: "Just because the crew is having a bad day they shouldn't take it out on the customer"
Cons: "Did not get TSN for the entire flight, even after we entered Canadian airspace."
Pros: "Flight attendants were humorous"
Cons: "WestJet chose to not delay a connecting flight by 30 minutes after their first leg flight was delayed by just over an hour. This resulted in a 1 hour Calgary layover turning into 11 hours. Instead of arriving in Regina at 1 pm, we got there at Midnight. Missed my only Saturday of visiting with family. No apology from WestJet. Received only $30 in compensation for meals to be divided by My daughter and I. I viewed this to be very cheap on the part of WestJest, with no consideration for the value of our time. Will make a point of avoiding them in future for absolute certain!!!!!!!"
Cons: "We were 3 hours late taking of so I missed my connecting flight. The staff are summer staff so know how to do very little. We got poor advice on changing flights, interminable slow to hey through to west jet themselves. The manager at the airport hid away until 15 minutes before boarding the late flight when he was due to come out with food vouchers, the catch, you had to leave and go back out through security to use them. Seriously, who would do that 15 minutes before boarding? And then my bag didn't arrive. ..."
Pros: "I like the staff and services"
Cons: "It's all I like west jet"
Cons: "There was no entertainment. But wifi was available if that is what you consider entertainment."
Pros: "Love it. Friendly and nice. Thank for making this flight rock!"
Pros: "Great staff. Smooth flight. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Is any plane seat comfortable??? Need better ergonomics for knees and necks!"
Pros: "Staff were amazing. Friendly and helpful, having the TV's made the flight go by quickly. I don't fly well, I often get sick and claustrophobic so having that distraction was awesome"
Cons: ".nothing!! It was fabulous!!"
Pros: "Fast service"
Cons: "No place to charge phone on any flights"
Cons: "Seating shoulder to shoulder with other passengers."
Cons: "Crew wasn't that great."
Pros: "After several eye rolls, I was offered taxi vouchers to and from our hotel - I had several bags and 3 sleeping children and i needed help getting to and from the hotel, more than what would have been offered with the shuttle service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no indication of the delays from the crew. I was emailed that we would be having supper on the flight - but myself and my 3 kids were told there were not enough meals and we were unable to eat anything other than some small snack items. We missed our connecting flight and given the late hour I would have appreciated some extra help with my 3 (sleeping) children exiting the plane - I asked for help but none was given."
Cons: "Poor information about delays. Terrible food options that were all sold out by the time the carts reached the center of the plane."
Cons: "Too many cutbacks. Air travel is a poor mans mode of travel unless you upgrade."
Pros: "I was very disappointed to find out that wifi was not on my flight. The staff on the plane was very robotic. Came across as miserable"
Pros: "The crew, who were not West Jet crew members as we had to take another airline's plane, were very attentive and the food was good."
Cons: "The Plus seats were worse than the West Jet outbound flight. Plane was older, the seats hardly reclined (which is why I originally paid for a plus seat) and the plane was not cleaned well. I went to use the washroom before take-off and it was not cleaned properly and my tray table had food stains on it."
Pros: "The new interior with power and WiFi were great"
Cons: "The power outlets are not obvious when your siting in the seat. I did not notice them until I looked at another seat and saw the recess where the plugs are. I would have been nice for the crew to mention this as well as the WiFi."
Pros: "The cleanliness and the seat arrangements"
Cons: "Snacks could have been given & Small bottled water."
Pros: "Jason the flight attendant made the flight very enjoyable and pleasant. I was a bit sad saying good bye to my family but Jason’s upbeat-positive energy brought so much happiness to my day. Exceptional employee! Thank you for hiring such a kind spirited person!"
Cons: "101% satisfied with the flight! No issues!"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence, but well-handled by the pilot. All lights in cabin were left on from takeoff to cruising, which made two infants cry that entire hour."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The customer service, both on the phone & in person"
Pros: "Seat very spacious, was given a extra legroom sit"
Cons: "My screen was not working properly. I didn’t ask for help as I had work to do so I didn’t need it."
Cons: "No video working"
Cons: "3 hr delay. Had to finally swap airplanes."
Cons: "We made thru customs and rescreening and still 18 minutes early. The gate agent literally closed the gate right I front of us. Argued that they closed the flight. AA closed the gate 8 minutes above the minimum 10 minute gate close requirement. We missed our flight and there was no announcement."
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Pros: "The seating and leg room was comfortable."
Cons: "Since my ticket was "basic" I was put in the last boarding group and given a middle seat; my mother was also in a middle seat. Once boarded I noticed everyone around me was separated from their families--to the point where a baby was transferred 3 times over my head between the parents!"
Pros: "Very convenient"
Cons: "The check in process was like a goat rodeo. Very very very slow."
Cons: "There isn't enough leg room for those of us who are tall. I'm 6'3 and my knees always strike the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Normal expectations were met"
Cons: "It was fine"
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Cons: "My bags were not checked all the way to my destination, I had to get them re-tagged and checked for this part of the trip and the American Agent was EXTREMELY rude and made us pay oversized bagge fees even though our baggage was within the Qantas allowance, the main carrier for our flight."
Pros: "Everyone was helpful and fried. They did a real good job of moving people thru security fast. They processed like 150 people in line in about 10 minutes."
Cons: "We were delayed out of Chicago almost an hour because they had to scrape ice off the wings. I really stressed over possibly missing my layover. I ended up having to race to the it terminal in 10 minutes. I checked my bag because they said they were running out overhead space and then they went and put my bag on a LATER FLIGHT so I still don’t have my bag"
Pros: "The flight was pleasant"
Cons: "American Airlines lost my bags and my wife’s bag and give almost zero resolution to the problem. I was told multiple times that it would be at our hotel the next day only to never show up. We Continued to be lied to about our bags."
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Cons: "Checked into flight 1.5 hrs before the departure and luggage did not arrive!? At least 1/3 of passengers ended up w/o a luggage!"
Pros: "We landed safely; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work"
Cons: "Extreme delays; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work; Sitting on the runway/tarmac for hours"
Pros: "Overall a great flight!"
Cons: "The idiot in front of me in row 16 dropped three drinks on my only coat, making the 19 degree temperatures where I was going even that colder. Not the airlines fault, but that’s my only complaint."
Pros: "The only decent point was the food. Not great but at least edible."
Cons: "Since check in in São Paulo was a complete chaos. There were only 2 people helping on check in (in machines) and these people were still not helping people (like me) with questions about on how to do check in in those machines. On the other hand to dispatch the bags there were almost 8 attendants to receive the bags. Ridiculous! I’ve tried calling American Airlines and Latam several times to assign a seat for me and they swore there were only middle seats but I know how airlines work to make extra money on these seats. At the end, they only gave me a middle seat option and I had to take I.t of course. On the plane I realized there were dozens of empty seats and yet they made sure not give them to me or anyone else. Unbelievable! Unfortunately I still have to use AA on my way back to Brazil. After this, I’ll chose another airlines for sure. Also, the 3,4,3 arrangement is ridiculous: there’s no corridor space making people touching you everything someone passes by your seat. And boy! Those seats are so uncomfortable and there’s no way to incline the chair so you can even have a little rest (because it’s impossible to even sleep on those seats). The crew were simply doing their jobs! No pleasure! No smile! No engaging with anyone unfortunately! They looked miserable and I asked for water and the flight attendant NEVER brought me anything. Seriously! Water is free!"
Cons: "There were no available snacks and drinks between meals in a long international flight. In other airlines, they have continous supplies of snacks and drinks at the food area for passengers to enjoy at their leisure."
Pros: "Spacious aircraft for a relatively short flight. I usually take a smaller aircraft that requires us to check our luggage. I'm reconsidering where I will have layovers now."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment, crew was very nice, I had no problems when boarding and dinner was fine."
Cons: "Breakfast was lacking, I did not enjoy anything I was given. A hot breakfast would be very nice or even bread with butter would have been a nice option."
Cons: "Didnt like the food or the movie selections"
Cons: "The flight was delayed little by little up to two hours then finally we board the plane, everyone is seated and then they cancel the flight."
Cons: "Delays due to maintenance and weather"
Pros: "Entertainment and meals"
Cons: "Crew could of been friendlier"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"
Pros: "Service was good. Entertainment system was excellent. Flight took almost an extra 45 minutes to arrive and was quite bumpy at the end. Not sure if it could have been avoided."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "One of the worst flights ever. The plane was jammed. My seat was in row 20, directly across from the lavatory. The light was one every time they opened or closed the door. I had people standing right next to me with their rear ends in my face. The plane would be fine for a short trip with that many people and such small uncomfortable seats (and I am a little person 5'1"). But to put that many people on a "cattle car" for a 6 hour flight... no bueno. Also, I could not check in online to get seats and I wasn't able to upgrade. My husband was stuck 13 rows behind me. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Pros: "This is a old 767 I was on. No individual TV's. The reading lights never worked. I chanced it on buying the wifi for $19 dollars which turned out to be super fast and I was able to stream movies. Meal and drinks and beer were included. But no way to charge your phone with out a car charger. This plane had no AC ports."
Cons: "I liked the food was included and beer."
Pros: "They flew us back to Charlotte in good time."
Cons: "Prior to take off as the plane backed away from the ramp, we heard a noise for several minutes from under the plane. It sounded like something with the wheels. Kinda unnerving. Just prior to taxiing the plane stopped, the pilot announced a technical difficulty. They had to reboot one system to correct it. We heard more wheel noise. Almost like the doors over the wheels were stuck. Again kinda unnerving. Once airborne everything was smooth."
Pros: "Except for comments under what I didn't like. AA experience was O.K."
Cons: "The restrooms needed cleaned better. Big airplane lots of people, needs cleaned before, during, and after. Had to pay for the Wi-Fi, that I used for 30 min, basically for E-Mail."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and hour and they lost out baggage. Did not have clothes for 2 days"
Cons: "There seets are two small. And they dont sell alcohol. That sucks."
Cons: "Still waiting for my refund"
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Great steward with fabulous sense of humor"
Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"
Pros: "i hate it coz i hav to pay another $98 just to have a seat. I thought if you purchased a ticket it comes with seat."
Cons: "i hate it coz i hav to pay another $98 just to have a seat. I thought if you purchased a ticket it comes with seat."
Pros: "On tome"
Cons: "2hour and 45minute layovet"
Pros: "I cannot even find a positive in describing my flighh experience on August 19-20, 2016"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, as I result I would miss my connecting flight. I was rerouted, making me arrive at my destination 4 hrs later than expected hence I missed my bus reservation to my place of stay. Oh! Not to mention, my luggage was lost and I had an event to attend a few hours later. Horrible experience."
Cons: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "No breakfast"
Pros: "Great service, great food, nice new plane. Flight attendants super attentive to allergies."
Pros: "I liked the staff on the flight. The flight had some nice"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food options, Air Canada used to have tasty food!"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Pros: "Other than the usher at the check-in desk, all other Air Canada staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Usher at check-in desk had terrible communication skills. He had an antagonist tone that set an aggressive tone for those just trying to comply to his directions."
Cons: "As per delaying of Cathy Dragon flight, I missed the flight back to Canada. Can you please give me a hand?"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a disorganized and took over an hour. There was a mix of people getting their passports checked and boarding. They never called for general boarding, just eventually started accepting people who got impatient. The entertainment options were the worst I've seen on an international flight in a while."
Cons: "I had my checked baggage held up in Calgary for one day. Then on the way back it was held up again in Calgary. This time it took 6 days,and no one could tell me where it was. It will be my first and last Air Canada flight."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Cons: "Engine noise unbearably loud French safety demonstration Restrictions around wearing headphones"
Pros: "I lucked out and got an isle seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed confused and very unorganised when serving. Very slow."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive when I did. I had to spend several hundred dollars on cloths for me and my niece so that we had what we needed for the two days it took to get our bags."
Pros: "Left on time. Friendly staff, Great flight"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Pros: "Wifi was a bonus (not free, but was good to have, and worked well). Staff was friendly."
Pros: "Quick non stop flight from Vancouver to Calgary. Has to change my flight last minute and wasn't charged for doing that. That on its own was a relief and great surprise."
Cons: "The plan was hot - no AC it was hard to sit through. The snacks on Air Canada flights get worse and worse every year. Pay more get less."
Pros: "Very smooth landing in Calgary. Almost an hour late leaving Toronto after a problem with pushing back from the gate. The pilot made up for most of the time lost."
Cons: "Didn't try the food so can't comment on it."
Pros: "Everyone was very kind and helpful. I am glad to try Air Canada for thw first time this time."
Cons: "It was late arriving in from TO. We had to pre board due to a handicapped companion and there was no time to settle with all the rest of the passengers shoving to get on due to the lateness. The majority of the flight was through turbulence. No one helped with placing bags for the handicapped in the overhead. They did not call for the wheelchair at arrival nor was there an attendant att arrival to push the chair up the ramp."
Pros: "Food has to be paid for on board- and the quality is not that great. Friendly staff willing to please"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost an hour from Calgary to Toronto (technical - computer issue). On the return flight from Toronto, the flight was also delayed (seat issue)."
Cons: "The boarding crew did a poor job of giving direction. In spite of the fact that boarding by zone was not specified, I was reprimanded by staff for boarding when I did. I found it very disrespectful that the staff reprimanded me for their own error. When I pointed out that they had not called a zone the ground staff lied and said they had called the zone. I strongly recommend staff receive remedial customer service training. This was an incredibly negative experience - not to mention undermined the otherwise decent experience that the Air Canada flight team provided."
Cons: "would be helpful to set up cabi lights according to destination's time. Also, no socks provided for this long flight."
Cons: "Offering "pasta" as a food choice isn't good. You might as well offer "potatoes" or "rice." Tell us what is in the pasta, what kind of sauce it is etc. Not enough details!"
Pros: "Frinedly staff. Clean cabin. Great entertainment and personal tv."
Cons: "I had seat 31k, by the emergency exit. I was told the most legroom and window seat. But I had to strch my legs to the left into my neightbor space. There was also jo window..."
Pros: "The comfort of a Dash 8 was surprising. The seats have a suitable amount of leg room which I'm actually scared to mention so they don't add an extra seat to each row to take it away. Not too much, not too small, just right for a 6 foot man to not have his knees pressed against the seat in front for the whole ride"
Cons: "Where to start? Dash 8's shake, rattle and roll for the whole trip. Felt like we could fall out of the sky at any time. Staff don't care. Split our group after rescheduling due to aircraft issues despite seats available on both connectors. Said to wait until next stop to fix. Next stop said nothing they can do since we checked a bag. Put 2 hours between arrivals just because they can. Blamed it on the computer. Did provide a $10 meal voucher. Good to know Air Canada values my total trip delay time at $2/hr"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent, no comments there. The head stewardess was a bit stressed and bossy (not only to the passengers, but her staff too) but the other crew members made up for that with their excellent, professional attitude."
Cons: "Calgary Airport was DREADFUL!!!! The long lineups for Customs & Immigration actually caused me to miss my next flight, even though the Frankfurt flight was early and I had over 90 minutes between flights. Several passengers were expressing concerns about missing their connection, but the staff just shrugged and made everybody wait in line without even trying to organize matters. I spent well over an hour waiting for my passport to be stamped and when I finally got through and tried to locate my suitcase (which was MIA), my next flight was closed. At least my suitcase will be delivered to our home, which is a slight relief."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. The food was not good and the flight attendants sat in the back of the plane instead of bringing drinks and food for a ten hour flight. We lost a day of vacation due to Air Canada not being held accountable for the flight being late as well as sitting on the Tarmac at Haneda airport."
Cons: "We sat on a Tarmac at another airport for five hours without knowing how long we would be there. Also, there was only one crew member that was helpful. Our flight was supposed to land at 2:20 pm and did not land until 10:30 pm at Narita airport. We were not compensated and were abandoned by Air Canada. We had to sleep in the airport since everything was closed."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Flight was underbooked so I took an option to change my seating for more space."
Cons: "I requested a vegetarian meal and was given the exact same mediocre meal for both lunch and breakfast."
Pros: "NOTHING AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SERVICE"
Cons: "Should offer meal included for a 5 hour flight which such an early check in that most of the airport restaurant were closed"
Pros: "It was quick and easy and saved me a hour drive!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and very attentative. There weren't many options on the menu to eat, but the item I had was delicious. (Roast beef and pickle on rye bread) I like that you have the touch screen entertainment options. Passes time on plane, and I get to watch a movie I haven't watched. Great feature."
Cons: "This one might be on the airport, but my ticket said you were at gate D34, and it ended up being on D36. There were many people confused, so I know I was t the only one. The person next to me was oversized, anyway to make the seats a bit bigger?"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Seating was so cramped and the plane smelt terrible"
Pros: "good take off, land off"
Cons: "charge for checked baggage"
Cons: "First you changed my 830pm departure to a 2pm departure then you had me sitting in the airport for six hours with a flight delay. ....no explanations were given for the time change or the delays. Shitty flights shitty service. If I had more options I would never fly air Canada but I'm unfortunately stuck with you."
Pros: "The desk workers at the check in were great to me in Tokyo. My original flight was delayed so there was possibility I might miss my connection. The desk worker went that extra mile to change my flight to an earlier one. Everything was completed barely in time, but she also escorted me through all the way to board the flight so they would not close the doors on me. She was awesome!"
Pros: "Direct flight most helpful."
Pros: "Loaded quickly,"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable for a long flight. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The food was good considering the air fare. The entertainment was great compared to other airlines that flight alternative routes to the same location. Compared to my other experiences with international flights this is one of the best ones overall."
Pros: "Overall outrageous fees as per usual"
Pros: "Selection of movies available for short flight"
Cons: "There were issues with the aircraft which caused an hour delay for the flight. Upon arrival (unrelated to the aircraft) there was another delay from the airport not being able to allocate an available platform to exit the aircraft."
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Cons: "It was very uncomfortable as Ive flown a lot this was the most uncomfortable I've been."
Pros: "Boarding and loading of the plane was fine until the generator didn't want to start."
Cons: "generator broken, waited/delayed IN plane 1.5hr+, no snacks or gift certificate given. Entertainment system kept restarting as a result."
Pros: "The information screen did not work... Air Canada booth at Winnipeg staff excellent.. Calgary terrible"
Pros: "Kayak's reasonably priced tickets"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainments in the equipment (plane)"
Pros: "Generally, Air Canada is my preferred airline. Flights were smooth ."
Cons: "Not enough time for transfer in Calgary so very stressful in USA customs and security. Baggage did not make the connection and I am still without 38 hours later."
Pros: "All aspects of the actual flight were good. The flight attendants were pleasant and professional and the food choices were good."
Cons: "The flight we had booked was cancelled. Were were rebooked on a different flight - the time was good as it got us home when we were supposed to arrive. The changed flight involved an additional transfer, which was stressful because of tight timeline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "this was the first leg to Phx. Offering a seat sale, then cancelling the flight, and arbitrarily rerouting us on a milk run! After calls to AC was able to make more acceptable arrangements, with their code share United. Then United did cancelled our flight the night before and rerouted us. Bottom line, we choose AC because of the seat sale and overall time of our travel. I will likely avoid using AC in the future even if I have to pay more!"
Pros: "Boarding was awesome, arrival was awesome. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, ie TV, as I did not have an iphone to download their app. We were offered a drink, no snack."
Pros: "It was meh...."
Cons: "I got no notification that the flight was going to be 1 hour earlier"
Pros: "Airplanes, entertainment, boarding, check in"
Cons: "Food, conections"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Cons: "We didn’t have food on our flight, but ordered it at a cost. We didn’t get the food or pay for it."
Pros: "Seats were better than usual. On time."
Cons: "Jammed full, not enough overhead bin storage. Too many people allowed to bring on WAY too much as carry-on. Badly managed. Wasn't Lufthansa, was a code share on a United flight. Wish it was Lufthansa, which is what the ticket originally was supposed to be. Bait and switch!"
Pros: "My economy plus seat was good (once I finally got it) and for all the hassle they did free tv for the whole plane. THey found a new plane FAST!"
Cons: "They changed gates last minute - plane was in for maintenance and slight delay - then cancelled that plane - did the series of 15 minute additional delays. They found a new plane - changed the gates (big distance) again - and 'the computer' had reseated 1/2 the plane. DISTASTER to fix."
Pros: "We had a two hour delay due to mechanical issues. Long time to fix it,"
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "Selection of films and TV"
Cons: "Late boarding, but no apology. Drinks service, but no snacks"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Cons: "United made me check my carry-on and would not transfer , so I had to wait for it and missed my connecting flight. Then I rebooked on a later flight which was cancelled due to weather. So needless to say I did not get to Ottawa and had to purchase a hotel room in Newark. United is telling me I may not get on another flight until tomorrow night. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Movie kept crashing and I had to restart the app"
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "The whole flight was fine. It was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. In particular, the head rests are not high enough for me to use and are not adjustable."
Pros: "Nice seats, very helpful staff at ticketing and nice crew"
Cons: "Reservation was deleted so check in took a very long time and my seat (reserved weeks in advance) on the long international flight was reassigned to a very undesirable location."
Pros: "Pushed out on time and made it home early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were non existent. 2 water services in a 4 hour flight is ridiculous."
Cons: "The United Boarding Agent repeatedly warned about the "SMALL" carry on compartments on the CJR aircraft and literally insisted we tag our carry ons to be set aside on boarding even though we knew they fitted OK. AS A RESULT when we got to Calgary we had to wait at the over size luggage racks for our carry ons to be delivered instead of them being set up for us as we left the aircraft which is normal!! Very frustrating!!"
Cons: "we took off over 1 hour late"
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "Effort by Seattle team to find alternate routes"
Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight Attendant was REALLY late. We had to delay boarding to wait for her. 15 minutes. then it took longer to wait for gate check -- green tag bag - than if I had checked the bag. when we finally got the gate check bags and headed through customs the checked bags were all on the carousel. And I have Nexus. So Customs was 3 minutes. NOT a good process. Figure it out YYC international terminal!!!"
Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time, small snack was good"
Cons: "Very little space in seat"
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Pros: "It was on time and good. We like it."
Cons: "If you guys maintain the serial it would be more comfortable for the passengers. If you call first group 1/2 and then group 3. And then group 4.and then group 5. It would be a more pleasant. When you call all together group 3/4/5. Then it's a really long line and hard to stand older people for long time."
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "We arrived safely along with our baggage."
Cons: "Major weather issues so delayed boarding and flight. That's understandable, but poor, often rude, gate operations. Often no, inaccurate, or misleading information. They seemed confused, as if this were the first time event."
Pros: "The flight is on time."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Cons: "I wouldn't know since I wasn't on it and I'm still in the airport waiting for my flight. I have to try to get comfortable on the floor right now."
Pros: "Direct TV on the flight was limited to the channels available. While I like The Lego Movie, I would also prefer more choices."
Cons: "I am 5'10" and my knees were pressed into the seat in front of me for the entire trip. Essentially, I didn't fit in the seats."
Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant. plane was clean"
Cons: "I was stuck with commercials for direct tv, two feet from my face the whole trip. I would push the button to turn tv off but it would come back on less than five minutes latter. I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a name discrepancy on a passenger. Not fair to keep everyone waiting for one person"
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late."
Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."
