Airline reviews

Pros: "Once on the flight, everything went well."
Cons: "Real nightmare as I had booked YUL-LYS-BRU with Brussels Airlines (SN). YUL-LYS was operated with Air Canada. Came within 4 minutes of missing flight despite being at airport 3 hrs early. SN had not released ticket to Air Canada so they could not check me in. Had to call SN customer service after AC could not check me in, then wait and wait as they had to try to correct the mistake 3x before AC counter could issue boarding passes. Terrible experience going through this with 2 small kids waiting. It’s as if the two airlines’ systems don’t communicate but passenger is responsible for resolving."

Pros: "Everything was cool. Great staff and got there in time good movies and snacks. No complaints."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Probably not an Air Canada issue but we went to departures and were well through the process when we were told that our bag would have to be checked (which was obvious). The lady acted like it was my fault that the other person had let me through with a cart and a full sized suitcase. A second young lady was a bit more sympathetic and helpful. Thankfully we arrived at the airport well in advance."

Pros: "When the flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues my flights from Victoria to Cancun was rerouted through Toronto with free hotel where my brother and I shared a bottle of wine at Air Canada's expense..."

Pros: "The food and service were very good."
Cons: "The entertainment system is a bit outdated and had to be rebooted more than once. But this was only a minor inconvenience."

Cons: "waited at the airport when landed for 2 hours"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 h delay in MDT and 10 h delay in Toronto. Absolutely terrible"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice and always had drinks available."
Cons: "Someone directly behind us had horrible body odor. Made for a sickening beginning and decision to always carry some Vicks."

Pros: "Great staff on plane"
Cons: "Plane was overweight due to the plane carrying luggage from a previous flight. This is poor logistics planning on Air Canada. We were delayed by an hour and waited inside the plane on the tarmac while they removed the extra luggage to reduce weight."

Cons: "the entertainment system on this leg of the flight didn't work at all! Give me a break!"

Cons: "For an overnight flight I would have expected the lights to be turned off, or at least dimmed. My plan to sleep and enjoy my day of return did not go ask planned."

Pros: "Ground personnel"
Cons: "The overall service on board"

Pros: "The flight attendant struggled were young very helpful and nice"
Cons: "No TV on back of seats. Seats very uncomfortable"

Cons: "When I arrived in Seoul, Asiana would NOT grant lounge access. I had a business class tkt to Korea, and Asiana does NOt offer biz class to my destination...very huge let down."

Pros: "Very friendly & helpful flight attendants."

Cons: "Hour late departure. Old people travel to Sarasota, AC should consider that in boarding."

Pros: "No screen creates a longer feeling flight."
Cons: "No good food."

Pros: "The crew was lovely and made the trip easy."
Cons: "The boarding process was very strange. The "zone" loading makes no sense because I was at a window seat and other people had already sat down, so they had to get up so that I could go to my seat. Also the entertainment selection is very limited and poorly curated. I would recommend downloading Netflix shows on ur device before using their service."

Pros: "Everything was good with this flight - really no complaints. The staff was very friendly too!"
Cons: "Nothing - I really have nothing to complain about with this flight."

Pros: "I never got to Vancouver so this flight never happened."

Pros: "I arrived safely!"
Cons: "This was an AIR CANADA operated flight. Considerably less comfortable than the 3 LH operated legs of my recent trip to Kenya."

Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."

Cons: "They picked randomly who gets in the flight and who didnt"

Pros: "Flight attendant did his best to make light of a tough situation."
Cons: "The flight was gradually postponed more and more, with very little communication on the ground. What communication we did get was spotty, and not delivered in a pleasant manner."

Pros: "One of the flight attendant saw I needed help holding my second big bag while I was putting my carry on in and she held it for me without me asking and helped me find my seat, it was very stress relieving for me, and I really appreciated that. She was also very nice to everybody."
Cons: "I had a sprite and the amount was very little, I feel like the cups have got smaller. But that's not a big deal"

Pros: "The direct flight was good time saver. The food was alright and the crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. In the same class, Lufthansa was more comfortable..."

Cons: "Due to maintenance, the flight was cancelled."

Cons: "My luggage is lost and I still don't have it!"

Pros: "Comfortable, well maintained aircraft. Good entertainment. Friendly crew. Boarding process was well conceived. They separated seating zones into different queues, and turned back people who attempted to board out of order."
Cons: "Breakfast was underwhelming for an international flight. Dinner was just average. The crew seemed to have trouble responding to things like...people using restrooms late during the descent, passengers making themselves a little too "at home" and thereby disturbing their neighbors, and repeated chimes due to an errant elbow on a call button...the little things. They are things you don't notice when a crew is highly attentive, as you find on Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa, or Air New Zealand. The crew were friendly, but not quite in charge."

Pros: "The crew was excellent with helping everyone and answering peoples questions."
Cons: "I had a 2 year old with me and boarded early. The flight was already delayed and more delays after everyone was aboard due to cargo not being on. I found this shocking for a red eye flight. This caused me to miss my connecting flight and having to wait 4 hours for the next flight with a 2 year old. our TV's seemed to skip even after they rebooted them so I wasn't even able to enjoy a movie or play any games."

Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Missed the flight"

Pros: "Boarded and arrived on time."
Cons: "Too much waiting at Toronto airport"

Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Non reclining seats for such a long flight. Very little leg room and indifference of flight crew."

Cons: "I was sent to Frankfurt because Air Canada messed up my flight. When I got to Frankfurt, they had booked me on a lufthansa flight. When I got to the gate to get a boarding pass, the person told me that Air Canada had not paid them for the flight and unless they were able to contact them before boarding the plane, I would not be able to get in. They were able to do so right before boarding. The plane from Frankfurt was over one hour late. I was supposed to arrive in Lyon at 10:35am and got there at 7:30pm. Throughout all this ordeal, Air Canada staff members were mostly unhelpful and often rude."

Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. At some point we boarded the plane then asked to disembark it as we were still not ready for take off. They told us there were some weather issues in Toronto ... I looked at 3 different weather channels who said that the weather was mostly clear in Toronto with a few scattered showers."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "In flight entertainment wasn't working on my seat."

Pros: "Standard flight - everything was as expected."

Pros: "The Flight Attendants were excellent helpful and very pleasant"
Cons: "NOTHING !!!"

Cons: "Seriously no leg room on long flight, uncomfortable, cramped Very delayed flight again."

Pros: "Excellent service as always !"

Cons: "Confusion at every airline because air canaduh forgot to release funds to other lines."

Pros: "Customer service was very good, friendly, and accommodating."
Cons: "The individual entertainment consoles had to be turned off several times to reboot. Sadly several of us didn't have reception for most of the flight."

Pros: "Food was great. Inflight entertainment needs work."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment needs more updated options ."

Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."

Pros: "Love the free coffee dispenser in the aiport! Staff very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Left a few min late"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor food choice and quality , comfort of seats"

Cons: "The baggage checkin was awful. The boarding check in was awful. The security check in was awful. The customs check in was awful. Understaffed and inefficient. The baggage conveyor backed up. The same staff that checked in our baggage was the same person who then ran upstairs to check us in at gate and it was all hand done and not computer scanned. No check in kiosks to make ticket checkin faster. Lines were all backed up and I barely made flight and my connection. Many either missed flights it connection or plane was held up to get people to flights. The lady at customs check in was good trying to handle the back ups but the shrine was severely backed up and understaffed. The pilots made good time and handle the turbulence well. Staff on board did well with timing of food and drinks Entertainment on board was awful. Didn't find out until on board on 8 hour international flight that needed an iPad with downloaded app for entertainment and therefore I had three kids that had nothing to do. Never did I have such an issue with an international flight that was so poorly managed. So disappointed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Impossible to reserve seat when booking my f not booked on the air ananda website Very cheap food and no food selection on board ( intercontinental flights) I fly 25/30 intercontinental per year... I had never happened to find such a poor company around. very disappointing"

Cons: "The cabin was cooler than expected. A water bottle would have been helpful to ensure hydrated during the flight when canon lights turned out."

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "snacks were wimpy"

Pros: "Arrived early. Great crew."
Cons: "Movie selection is a bit stale"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "What a rip off airline trying to nickel and dime you every chance they can. You think you got a value until they add in extra money every chance they can. $13 to pick your seat. Tight fitting seats. They don't allow a carry on bag when you book economy and you have to pay for your carry on. Etc."

Pros: "Enough food was provided."

Cons: "Seat could not recline and sat next to a fat person who took over my armrest and and personal space. I got sick on this flight because of everything and I never got sick on a flight before flying United"

Pros: "We had a two hour delay due to mechanical issues. Long time to fix it,"

Pros: "On flight entertainment was nice, so was extra legroom although way too much more money for a seat one way."
Cons: "Temperature was not well controlled. Stewardess was rude when asking about food and beverage. Tols is that she was only doing food when we tried to order a drink from her but proceeded to get one without hesitation for the gentleman sitting next to us. Did the same thing a second time also, just very off putting"

Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."

Pros: "I travel a lot. All was fairly normal."
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work. Woman next to me sat cross legged and the bottom of her foot as resting on me. When I politely asked that she not out the bottom of her dirt against me she swore at me and was confrontational and crazy. Flight attendants did nothing"

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."

Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."

Cons: "Not a kind service"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and not completely full, which left me with a row to myself."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 4 hours, should have given us miles or a voucher"

Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."

Pros: "Staff and crew were great. Kept us informed and were willing to work with us"
Cons: "Overloaded plane, then took two-hours to decide what to do. Not our fault that they overloaded the plane, yet no accommodation for them delaying us for two hours."

Pros: "Layout of plane good for walking. ATL gate agents 5-star, all other staff horrible. Drunk passenger vomited in aisle (SFO to Auckland) & got vomit in my hair. Nauseated entire 12 hour international flight & flight attendant refused to move me. Couldn’t eat because of vomit on me and around me, flight attendant said, “it’s perfect, I sprayed it.” Unbelievable!!! Do not recommend United Airlines."
Cons: "Drunk passenger vomited on me (SFO to Auckland) and female Asian flight attendant refused to move me even though plenty of cabin space available. Unsanitary condition called for empathy and United failed to deliver..."

Pros: "On time, pleasant crew"

Pros: "I only flew united because it was the cheapest I found for my flight at the time I booked it."
Cons: "My seat 3 of the 4 of my connecting flight seats were broken and could not recline. I could smell urine coming from the bathroom from my seat while waiting for people to board(3 hrs of urine smell will ruin any flight experience). The internet did not work coming back from Central America so if you don't have the entertainment app already on your phone, you couldn't watch any tv since you can't even download the app. Other airlines normally have a monitor so their customers can watch tv and not stain their eyes looking at their phone. But with United, if you don't get beat up the airline, its considered a win."

Cons: "Air temperature was too warm which caused nausea."

Pros: "Pilots ability, cleanliness of jet, gracious cabin crew"
Cons: "Wish it was a larger aircraft with more comfortable seats"

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: "Delayed"

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Leg room in economy was bad for a international flight"

Cons: "Plane was small and cramped. So small you could not get a carry - on in the overhead bin. Also I did not receive an electronic scan to get on the plane. Wasn't I supposed to get one ?"

Pros: "Nothing comes to mind other than dimmed cabin lights"
Cons: "My complaints will have no influence on United"

Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "The default on the browser defaulted to April 9 when I was actually booking the ticket for April 2. So I had to forfeit the $317 ticket. I use kayak a lot - can anything be down ?"

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."
Cons: "I was starving and dehydrated."

Pros: "..."
Cons: "Never happened"

Pros: "United covered my hotel room and gave me $30 in meal vouchers. Would have rather been at my destination though."
Cons: "Mechanical failures flights canceled had to rebook the next day!"

Cons: "None"

Cons: "The flight was 1 hour late because soeone forgot to turn the batteries off. After waiting 50 minutes in line they would not assis with new connections endwd ip spending the next four hours getting to a new Airport and flight which was also late"

Pros: "An eighty-five mile an hour tailwind got us from Los Angeles to Denver twenty-five minutes early. At LAX, our departure gate was only three gates from the arrival gate of our connecting flight, so no long trek through LAX. Seats on our 737-900 were tight and didn't recline far but, hey, United is the Wal-Mart of modern air travel. What do you expect?!"

Pros: "Professionalism of staff. Good timing on services offered"
Cons: "Don't have anything to say"

Pros: "It really was great. On time, crew was helpful and friendly"

Cons: "Myself and 10 others were kept from boarding as they had overbooked/overweighted the plan for the wind conditions...so i was stuck with a mini van rental as they couldn't get me another flight to my destination for 2 days so I ended up driving the 14hrs to make it home."

Cons: "The TSA at New Orleans airport was rude"

Pros: "Great ticket counter staff!"
Cons: "Overbooking a flight by this much is obscene. When an aircraft goes down, everyone loses."

Cons: "The delay ruined our evening and made the expense of a hotel for the night and babysitting moot because we might as well have flown the next morning. So much for seeing friends in Seattle on Thursday night. A 2 hour delay means we just get to sleep in an airport hotel for no reason."

Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "Flight was over 2 hrs delayed so I couldn't even take the flight. Waste of my money. Paid 330 dollars and got nothing. Now United nor you guys are helping. Never again will I use this site"

Pros: "Nothing about it"
Cons: "Everytime I fly United there is ALWAYS a delay. I will never choose to fly United again. I had two flight which were both delayed, very upset about it."

Pros: "Quick to board"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit"

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."

Cons: "My TSA wasn't tagged to my ticket"

Pros: "I liked having an Aisle seat both ways and I was in an exit row the first flight. I also loved the text alerts from Kayak. Thank you!"
Cons: "United destroyed my luggage and wouldn't pay for their mistake. I checked in the second I could (exactly 24 hours before the flight), and I was still put in boarding group 5. Because I was in boarding group 5, I had to check my back, which would have been carried on, and was subsequently destroyed by United baggage handlers. To try and rectify and complain about the luggage problem, I called United and they were completely unhelpful. Finally, the first flight was delayed and moved to a different plane, that was a total nightmare!"

Cons: "The seats don't recline and are too close to the seats in front of you... NO leg room! I will not be taking United again!"

Pros: "Very friendly and great service. Gave us drinks twice."
