Cons: "We r a family of 5 and we did not seat together this Waht bothers the most of the trip that they couldn't put us together"

The staff was rude and unhelpful in finding a way home, ultimately sending us to New York City for an overnight layover without hotel accommodations. We had to sleep at the airport for a morning flight to San Francisco, causing us to miss work. This was the worst travel experience of my life."

Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"
Pros: "Every thing about the flight but the"

I have always like Turkish Airlines but now I will try to go with any other Airline because of that problem, all their flight are routed true Istanbul and I do not want to risk being stacked there again!!!!!"
Pros: "Airport, Service and much more"

Cons: "The crew is really rude and unhelpful and the seats not clean"
Pros: "Good attitude of aircrew"
Cons: "There was heavy rain in Instanbul and our luggage was not covered. Half my clothing was soaked when I received it in Erbil. No rain in Erbil or Frankfurt, so I know who is to blame. Turkish Airlines in Instanbul. No way are they the best in Eurpoe..."
Cons: "Employees didnt look or act very welcoming. Very little food."
Cons: "One beverage service on a 8+ hour flight counting JRO? Crew literally disappeared for quite a few hours."
Cons: "I woke up twice due to too warm cabin."

Cons: "A few of the stewards and stewardesses had a bad attitude; as if they had brought on board some format of negativity. I understand the flights can be long, but there's no need for bad behavior towards customers."
Pros: "Food and entertainment system"
Cons: "Heat on the airplane."
Cons: "Flight delayed and lack of communicatiob"
Pros: "I liked Sofia airport personnel friendliness"
Cons: "No entertainment system, flight attendants are not very friendly."
Pros: "There were plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight was cramped with no room to get comfortable. The crew was concerened with it being an overnight flight and rushed through service so that the lights could be turned off on the cabin. They ran out of a food option and forced a selection on everyone in the back of the plane. The person sitting next to me even had a dietary restriction and her meal had been given to another passenger. The boarding process was a mess without clear directions from the staff, it was a giant mob trying to force its way onto a plane."
Pros: "Food is always great on Turkish airlines. Entertainment was also great."
Cons: "My flight experience was ruined because TK02 flight was significantly delayed to Istanbul and therefore 25 oassengers did not make it to their flights. The way crew handled this was terrible, they did not care at all! We ended up all waiting for 9 hour at Ataturk Airport."
Pros: "I had a really long lay over and got a free hotel. None of the airline personal will help you find the hotel desk you need to get to, but if you keep asking around you'll find it eventually(in arrivals next to the starbucks). Shuttle service to and from the hotel. The hotel was fine(I mean not great but it was descent)."
Cons: "The flight attendants aren't super nice and if they don't understand you they kinda just move on. So that was sort of annoying."
Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."
Pros: "This was our first time with Turkish Airlines. I love that an inexpensive flight gave such wonderful service. My favorite thing is that they treat children well. We will definitely use again."
Pros: "Best menu vs. previous 3 Turkish Airlines flights on this trip. Great movie selection. Accommodating crew. Comfortable chairs. Nice travel packs."
Cons: "Bathrooms were very dirty by half way through the trip. Crew should keep them cleaned. Free Wi-Fi should be the standard on such a long flight. More leg room needed for Americans & Europeans above average height. Larger water bottles should be passed out before sleeping hours. Each passenger needs a personal fan. Temperature was too warm. Gate agents in Istanbul had a very confusing set-up to get on plane. Gate agents not empowered to help passengers with all issues that arise. We left item at gate in Catania, & gate agent unable to offer any help or detailed guidance to help us work to get it back."
Cons: "My Luggage did not make it, I don't have any information about it :)"
Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "Our bag arrived without the walking poles attached to it. So far (more than a week after the flight) we haven't heard from Turkish Airlines anything about our complaint regarding this loss of baggage."
Pros: "Attention, service, flight."
Pros: "Train ur staff to be courteous, improve their deamenour, improve the quality of food. Your r turkish, the best cuisine in the world but the food quality on airline was the worst. On one leg of my flight they turned off the AC; Seriously!!"

Cons: "She would not listen to me. I had to come out, unfinished, embarrassed and couldn't even wash my hands before going back to my seat. Other than that, every other experience was excellent. Please lecture your crews about constipation and to listen. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats are quite uncomfortable and not so quite flat. For an overnight flight it was quite painful."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian options so I only could have salad, bread and butter"
Cons: "When purchasing tickets on KAYAK be very careful to notice you often ARE NOT buying the ticket from the airline and any issues you have will be with the reseller and not the airline. KAYAK should be more clear about who the seller is and you should ABSOLUTELY stay away from resellers unless you like to gamble."

Cons: "At Frankfurt, the boarding gate was changed two times."
Pros: "staff at airport were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "telephone reps NOT helpful and do not know the airplane seat maps"
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "Excellent connection arrangements in Munich. Departing gate just steps away from the arriving one!!! German punctuality as well."
Cons: "Too little space between consecutive rows on the plane."
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "Lunch was good."
Cons: "I have not even had this trip because the Lufthansa denied my boarding and canceled and rest of the trip"
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "Everyone is very very nice!"
Cons: "Luftansa gives up and goes out of business."
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance with boarding. I attempted to ask the check in agent at the boarding gate and she was extremely rude to me as well as other passengers. The assistant's behavior displayed annoyance and an unwillingness to assist passengers."
Pros: "That was the best airline meal I've ever eaten. It was a lightly curried chicken. Outstanding. Extremely fast boarding. Boarded entire airplane in less than 15 minutes. Nice selection of movies and audio. All of which you could stop, pause, fast forward, and rewind."
Cons: "No reading lights. No attendant call button I could find. Not much air volume. That pesky lack of leg room. Short seat belts."
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."
Pros: "Why am I getting this email. I am not this person taking this trip..I'm frustrated with this ...I talked to the the airline already numerous times and still I am getting emails from Lufthansa and kayak."
Cons: "crowded plane unfrindly staff no choice of meals long wait on board"

Pros: "Flight was operated by United Airlines. Easy boarding, friendly crew. Pillows, blankets, and headphones provided plus free house wine and beer as well as the usual coffee, tea, soda. Seatback video did not work for me, but I had no plans to use it as I needed to sleep on the flight. Excellent vegetarian dinner of vegetable korma, chickpeas and rice. Heated snack was not meatless, though, so as a Catholic flying on Friday had to pass."
Cons: "Vegetarian option (or meatless Friday option) for snacks as well as meals would be nice. They are in the process of changing to personal device entertainment, so seatback screen issue will not be a problem in the future."
Pros: "nothing is good"
Cons: "the food and bathrooms"

Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Food can be better"
Cons: "Menu was completely false. I asked for the lemon pasta with spinach and cheese. I was brought pasta a veg with soy sauce. I pointed out that this was not what the menu stated, and the crew told me, oh, that is the vegetarian option ... so I asked for the halibut instead. It was salmon. The menu said"
Cons: "Didn’t know I had to put into my reservation that I’m a vegetarian. Therefore there was no food for me on my flight."
Pros: "We were traveling with a person in a wheelchair. The crew and staff were fantastic. Lots of help that made the experience great!"
Cons: "The seats could be roomier."
Pros: "Enough room to sit comfortably in."
Cons: "Bathrooms were so dirty by the end of the trip. The toothpaste they gave us was so dried out, you couldn’t even break the seal on it. The ear plugs they gave out were useless. The entertainment had no movies or TV shows I liked. There was a guy next to me who overflowed his seat over into mine."
Cons: "Flight v delayed"
Pros: "Comfortable economy"
Cons: "No entertainment options; no coffee/tea service"
Pros: "We lost our bags but they find it after 9 hours Very bad experience"
Cons: "Economy the same like business And they need to be more carful with the bags becouse we lost our bags for more then 9 hours"

Pros: "Flight wasn't packed. Reasonable room for carryons. Seat next to me was open, though most seats were full."
Cons: "There was a late gate change in Cairo, which was not communicated to the new gate personnel. They were not ready to receive, there was no female screener which required a delay for the ladies to enter the gate area, and the plane was late leaving. Not a crisis, but was entirely avoidable. Also, I suggest avoiding long layovers in the Cairo airport. There are few chairs outside the eating areas."
Pros: "The timing is perfect"
Cons: "Maybe in the near future the airline should provided for chops and drinks that have less super on the plane.great service and kudos to the pilot and the crews"
Cons: "Ran out of chicken meal"

Pros: "Lots of terberlance but good flight"
Cons: "The terberlance"
Cons: "Food ordinary"
Pros: "Good food selection, Good entertainment selection. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Lack of attention of flight attendants. Children running around without parental supervision and flight attendants ignoring this for 12 hours is irritating. Garbage all over the plane during the flight, mostly due to passengers. Having to x-ray your bags 5times, and stopped 8times to check my ticket before boarding."
Cons: "length of the trip"
Cons: "Allowed only one bag and charged $120 for second bag. I thought we are allowed two bags"
Pros: "The crew was gentle and courteous."
Cons: "I choose to see only positive things."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Pros: "Every things was good"
Pros: "I had checked in online and went to drop my check in bags at the counter. There was no baggage drop line - only economy and business class. I went to business class and said that I had checked in online and want to drop my bags and they gladly accepted it"
Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good. The boarding process became a bit hectic in Joburg and arriving in Cairo was a mess too. Our baggage took too long to arrive on the belt and people were still waiting for their luggage after I had gotten mine. No one from EgyptAir told us anything which confused us even more. Next time have more organization and communication with passengers."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Bathrooms could be a little bit cleaner"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Great food options. Super comfy fully reclining to bed seats. Very attentive flight crew."

Cons: "Delayed departure; departure fate kept changing; long time waiting on the bus"
Cons: "Flight was an hour early"
Cons: "The supervisor and some of his crew were rude because I had a problem and they were not helping"
Cons: "The attendants only came around 2 times to offer drinks/water on a 12 hour flight. They only offered tea/coffee once. It was not offered after the main meal even. The attendants need to come around with water every few hours on such a long flight."
Pros: "Boarding was as enjoyable as possible."
Cons: "Other than delivering food and drink together, crew was generally not visible throughout flight. Trays of finished food and drink were left on passengers' trays an extremely long time. Trash was not picked up except twice during the flight (following the two meals)."
Cons: "Amount of food and crew behavior"
Pros: "Friendlty crew"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "They must have minimum 2 main meals and the third sandwich. They must have drinks between the meals. They must tell the passengers what next when there is a problem."
Pros: "crew was just normal, seat was fine, not comfortable"
Cons: "first flight was 4 hours late, resulting in potential missing connection flight. had to change reservation & arrive super late"
Pros: "It is on time. Nice aircraft and crew."
Cons: "The breakfast needs improvement."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, lots of leg room in the bulkhead area. I was able to sleep in spite of daytime travel because the crew kept the cabin low-lit. There were snacks and drinks available in the galley throughout the long flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very friendly, just “did the job”. The overhead lighting was focused on passengers’ heads, not on the lap area/tray table area where it’s needed. The bathrooms weren’t maintained during the flight—out of toilet paper, poop & urine on the seats, overflowing trash bins."
Pros: "Flight timing"
Cons: "Old aircraft, very noisy, old uncomfortable seats, food and entertainment"
Cons: "Terrible food.. must need improvement"
Pros: "The seat on the Boeing 787 is the best. Decent legroom."
Cons: "The crew was never friendly or very accommodating - like it was a chore. Some cultural thing ?"
Pros: "flight attendants were VERY professional and attentive."
Cons: "the bathrooms were awful (likely due to disgusting passengers - but possibly a tidy up by staff could improve the situation). Of course there was a child that screamed for 9 of the12 hour flight - possibly staff could cajole the child/help the parent (?). The movie selection was a little outdated"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the handling of the plane by the pilots was good"
Cons: "While the plane was a Dreamliner, the quality of the seats, and the space in the seats didn't fit the the usual Dreamliner quality. The toilet facilities were terrible ... urine on the floors that made them sticky and horrifically stinky. Only two food service events during the 13 hours ... the first was OK, but the second was really sub par (a sandwich and a granola bar only)/.The available entertainment choices of movies were really lacking compared to other airlines. My first seat assignment had to be changed, because the man set to be sitting next to me began murmuring and cursing when he found out that I was to be next to him. My second seat assignment had me sitting in front of a man, who angrily refused to let me recline my seat at all, because it would crowd his leg space. Therefore I had to sit perfectly straight for all 13 hours of the flight. There were no other aisle seats for me to switch to. Most airlines offer eye shades and earplugs for the long haul flights. Not this one. Both were needed on this rather noise, chaotic flight. I guess you get what you pay for ... the cheap fare is not worth it. I don't intend to fly this airline again."
Pros: "Professional flight attendants, kept a good schedule of offering refreshments and meals. Such a difficult task to be attentive to a passenger list that probably spoke more than 10 languages. Polite and patient throughout."
Cons: "my bag was held in amman. when I was going through customs and my bag didn't appear, I approached a team member who already had my name on a list of people whose bags were delayed.. Would have saved me some time if they called the names of the passengers with delayed bags so we wouldn't be waiting for the bags to appear. I don't know if this is an issue specific to the flight crew or to the airline in general or to the airport but it did cause some grief on my end."
Cons: "They only offer one main mean they used to offer to 2 main meals plus breakfast."
Cons: "The entertain monitor did not work. It was rebooted twice with no luck"
Cons: "They lost my bag"
Cons: "Too many screaming babies and toilets that didn’t work along with the crew that didn’t care."
Pros: "Evry thing Time keeping Food Survice"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "Bad airport service"
Cons: "Very bad staff"
Pros: "Food ,service, clean"
Pros: "On time both at departure and arrival. Economy in the 787 is comfortable with better leg room than usual. Baggage claim was excellent"
Cons: "The toilets could have better attended to. Entertainment screen in my seat froze and couldn't be used."
Cons: "Although we were traveling together, the airline seated us separately on both flights. Going from Chicago to Amman I was seated in seat 16A while my husband was placed on the other side of the airplane in seat 17K!! On the ride back, I was in seat 13A and my husband in 30C!!!!! Prior to check in and during check in, I was informed that I was not able to select our seats, and that we would just have to arrange seating ourselves once we were on the plane!! A week prior to leaving Amman my husband called rj and talked to a representative who changed our seats."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Poor service. Rude and unprofessional staff. Not enough food or beverage service."
Cons: "Food is really bad .."
Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "They offered drinks/water ONCE in the entire 13 hour trip. I was desperate for water about 6 hours in. I did purchase a bottle of water after I was through security at the Amman airport, but when I went to my gate, I couldnt take the water to the actual waiting area!"
Cons: "The airline canceled my return flight without notice because I did not board an earlier connecting flight."
Pros: "There was more leg room than I'm used to and I got to watch Lego Batman"
Cons: "Seats were declined during take off and landing. Kids were running around everywhere, one even jumping into my leg, and one, get this, was running around as we were landing. At no point did anyone say "hey, be a parent and keep your kids in check." The staff seemed kind of lazy and annoyed Just generally a mess of inconsiderate people and the crew not doing their job."
Cons: "As I boarded the aircraft I snapped a photo of my seat. I was yelled at by the manager in front of at least 30 passengers, that it is not allowed to snap any photos on board. Clearly this is a made up rule as all social media accounts are blasted with peoples photos. As well- I work in aviation over 8 years and have never heard about this rule. The fact that he choice to stand on the other side of the aircraft and yell at me, instead of walking up to me and explain nicely was not acceptable. Later I’m the flight, I suggested to him that proper procedure is walking up to the person instead of yelling across, my just that he didn’t apologize, he even replied with a very nasty comment. And this was the flight manager. What I can say for sure, is: NEVER AGAIN FLYING ROYAL JORDANIAN!!!!"
Pros: "Food and crew were great."
Cons: "Security was slow and repetitive. Additional screenings at multiple extra places. One guy checking ID for long lines. Seats were not as comfortable as some. People were rude on ground side. Not helpful. Entertainment was limited but ok. Ext"
Cons: "My daughter and I asked to move to have more room on the flt to change to a different row the flt was not full at all. The crew said they needed the last 2 rows for themselves which I understood until they pulled out all their bedding and lyed down to sleep each taking a full row. I have never seen this befor on my extensive travels. We were only offered fluids to drink 2 times with meals on a 12 hour flt from Jordan to Chicago. I thought this was poor service and not health for the passengers. My meal was the same both times with small amounts and poor quality. I noted it was much better on the way over along with the service. I assisted with a medical emergency on the flt being a emergency room nurse and I did feel the staff was great full I was able to help. I am sorry to say I will choose air France in the future."
Cons: "Seats are too close to each other"
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean."
Cons: "The food wasn't that good for me, the dessert was good. Not all the crew members were friendly with the passengers."

Pros: "Everything they are the best good with customers they love to help I Recommend to use this airline thank you so much you guys are the best"
Pros: "The head of crew Mr. Khatieb was very helpful when he learned that my mom has knee and back problem /surgery so he let my Mom sleep in the crew cabin last 2 hours of our flight on April 7th .2017"
Cons: "The check in crew in O'Hare airport (ladies) are bunch of liers .. RJ -Amman gave us 2 weeks ahead of flight oyr set seat K19 and H19 when we arrived 2.5 hr ahead of boarding they told me you have 2 saparet seats..

I told her my Mom had problem in her back n knee and I need 1st raw for her she said the dont have while when we boarded there was 1 empty seat in front of us whole flight ....they come from culture of friend and family comes first.. so they give and keep seats for their friend and family ...such a shame.. My Mom suffered from burning and nummbing the whole flight and arrived Amman sick .Will never choose RJ again ."
Pros: "really loved how happy and positive the flight attendants were"
Cons: "didnt like waiting for toilets"
Pros: "I loved the food - some of the best I've ever had in the air! There was a plentiful array of free movies and TV shows available for free. There was room to stretch out in the seats."
Cons: "I found the process of the layover in Amman to be confusing. Apparently, I could not get a free hotel for my layover. I tried to use the Crown Lounge as well but was told I could only use it (and pay to use it) during certain hours, which was confusing."
Pros: "Our own tvs. Service was friendly. The tint windows are pretty cool. It did create a quieter atmosphere."
Cons: "We were in the clear tunnel waiting to board and could see the luggage being checked by dog, next thing, the dog lifted his leg and peed on my luggage. I knew it was mine because it's a very bright lime green. Not happy about that. Everyone in the tunnel saw it too. Food was so so. The snack was a joke, a bun with cheese and one tiny slice of a cucumber. Would've rather had chips or pretzels or cookies."
Cons: "I didn't like my treatment in the airport by RJ staff. They had initially told me I would have a hotel to stay in during my layover, but upon my return trip, I was told that I could not get a hotel. They had a policy in place that stated since I could have taken a later flight, they wouldn't compensate my hotel... but I had never been told that, otherwise I would have made other arrangements. I had to be out of Iraq at a particular time, and leaving any later simply wasn't possible. The staff was uncaring, and unfriendly throughout the entire process."
Cons: "Bathroom were so dirty"
Cons: "it took a very long time for take off, and de freezing. That should have been done prior because it made our flight very late arriving in toronto"
Pros: "Great crew!! Super nice"
Pros: "Nothing. I flu form FLL to Yul and back. I have 3 hours delay each time. At the beginning they announce 1 hour and after that nothing. No explanation why."
Cons: "Continued. In my way back my seat was on the back of the plain. As soon I take my seat an urine smell hit my nose. All passengers around me complain about same issue. Soon we find out both back restroom have no water. We have to endure that smell all trip. NO MORE Air Canada. Is the 3rd bad experi"
Pros: "It was a fairly short flight. Seats were comfortable and the entertainment system worked"
Cons: "Flying out of long beach or santa Ana because lax is a zoo"
Pros: "The crew on The flight was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The flight was so crammed. I understand there's the possibility of flying on a fully booked flight but if it took an hour to load the passengers how quickly can you realistically get 400 passengers out? Plus it prevents everyone from having an overhead cubby. You need to reconfigure the flying experiwnce."
Pros: "The stewardess was top-notch, professional and friendly"
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled for 4 times ... Every time standing in a line for the new boarding pass"
Pros: "Very happy with my trip"
Cons: "My lineup in USA entry line was ridiculous and I missed my boarding time because it was as hard to get the air Canada attendants attention so I ended up waiting 40 minutes anxious about missing my plane. Their kiosks weren’t working proper hence the longer line."
Cons: "7:05am Flight got cancelled and they saw fit to rebook us on a 20:30pm flight.. decided to reroute us to anotjer city in canada and down to a different airport in DC Lost my luggage from time i checked it it at 0500am yo time dflight was cancelled and rebooked at 0700. And to fike claim and travrl without jt. Worst experience ever."
Pros: "Was on time both take off and reached"
Cons: "They served frozen food."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work after I paid for it"
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Cons: "No one told us the only inflight entertainment option was streaming via their app, until we were seated on the aircraft with no access to wifi."
Pros: "They allowed us to make an earlier connection without any fee. That was very kind. Thank you."
Pros: "Reasonably good all around."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat on this flight and wished I hadn't. Whole rows of seats were empty and I would have been more comfortable in my original seating, according to the seating plan during online check in the entire plane was booked out but for a few seats."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "They only had two people at the counter to check in passengers for two flights that took off fifteen minutes apart. they closed the ticketing/ checkin counter downstairs an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off. the same people moved up stairs to work the counter at the gate. it took us an hour and ten minutes to get check our bags. Once we got to our destination, only one of two bags was with us. the airline won't even deliver the missing bag to us. they will only get it to the destination airport if they can find it."
Pros: "They afford a civil and enhanced trip on an Express flight. Something AA and other airlines consistently fail to do."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, considering there were just over two hundred passengers to manage. The crew was excellent: responsive, courteous and proactive. Entertainment: Overall plenty of options though some were dated. Food: surprisingly good, and COMPLIMENTARY. Didn't have to pay extra."
Cons: "Coach is CRAMPED. And on a 14-hour flight, that's important.."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Pros: "The plane was clean and fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for no apparent reason. We were not told of this delay until 45 minutes after boarding time was supposed to begin. Good communication would have helped with this issue."
Cons: "There was only one snack option and I couldn't eat it because it contained gluten."
Cons: "Spent extra 12 hours at the airport"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Announcement was made at the last minute. There wasn't enough space for carry-on luggage, mostly because the flight crew let people hog space leaving less for everybody else."
Pros: "Easy flight to DC."
Cons: "First time at Pearson Airport needed some help finding my way around the airport"
Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."
Pros: "crew was helpful and nice, especially in the terminal which is hard for mom to get around. If you need a wheelchair remember to ask beforehand. We hadn't so we had to wait sometimes while they located one for us. As we had long layovers (so mom could rest) this wasn't a problem for us, but with shorter turn around times it could be an issue."
Cons: "people were rude. couldn't lean seat back and it was a red eye so I had no sleep for 25 hours. WAY too NOISY for a red-eye flight which also didn't help with rest."
Pros: "Attendants came around multiple times to help. Great pay menu items. Service desk explained the plane would be full and I should check my bag so I could not stress about finding space in a compartment."
Cons: "Ran out of some pay menu items. one headphone jack was loose and didn't function correctly. Wide attendants are too used to there jobs and just plow through aisles bumping anyone a bit too close to the walkway instead of moving sideways. More concerned with corralling bodies and going through the motions."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Pros: "Once I actually got on the rebooked flight, everything went great."
Cons: "I get it, weather happens, but airlines should have figured out by now how to make any issues that come from that as painless as possible. Air Canada did not have it together. There was little communication and coordination. People had to wait multiple times in ungodly long lines while agents spent way too much time with each customer. There was misinformation and lack of information given by agents and at times no one to help at all. When there's weather it should be all hands on deck until the effected customers get to where they need to be. Otherwise it's an aggravating and nearly intolerable experience. Commercial airlines have been around for 60+ years - figure it out already."
Cons: "Delayed baggage took 3 days to get to my home. Flight attendant had assured me that the bag (sports equipment) made the connection which it hadn't."
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to washington"
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for more than 3 hours and there was not even a drink offered for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great with children."
Cons: "Multiple confusing security processes at airport. Huge lines. Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Pros: "crews were knowledeable. foods are so cheap."
Cons: "they need to improve their food quality and customer service."
Pros: "Staff were nice and helpful. Food was surprisingly good for being on an airplane."
Cons: "The flight over all was good. The annoying part was that we were boarded and then were informed there was a maintenance issue, then there was a fire alarm so we ended up sitting in our seats for an hour before the flight finally took off and it was already a 6.5 hour flight so being stuck on there longer was not ideal"
Cons: "Pushed call button twice as I could not get entertainment system in business class to work, never came"
Pros: "On time, excellent flight."
Cons: "There was only a very limited choice of movies to select from."
Cons: "Not even pretzels"
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: "The sits were comfortable. More space between sits."
Pros: "Terrible, only one spot open, long lines. We missed boarding and were forced to wait 4 hours after already 10 hours travel. No help and no mercy at the custom area."
Cons: "Use all airport customs agent's desks after a large plane arrivals."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient. The entertainment consoles were nice, having games and movies and flight tracking."
Cons: "Not notified about long flight delay until 5 mins before scheduled boarding. Happened once with my flight and twice with my daughter's."
Pros: "Same as first flight."
Pros: "The ride was very pleasent. Staff were always smiling and super nice."
Cons: "The lack of arm space and limited seat recliner."
Pros: "The checked baggage came through all the way from CTS-HND-YYZ-DCA. It was great I didn't have to pick them up even once. Thanks."
Cons: "The boarding gate at YYZ was changed without announcement. No free movie or audio. Snack was sort of sad."
